Chapter 189 – Heavenly Sword Sect’s Yun Can
At this moment, both Daoist Black and Guo Shan were immersed in deep thought and silence. The Qi Province was just one of the weakest provinces in the Eastern Continent. It’s overall strength was pretty similar to the Qian Province’s overall strength. Compared to the other powers, the difference was huge. There wasn’t even a single Combat Soul warrior in the entire Qi Province.
That was the reason why the Martial Saint Dynasty had abandoned these two provinces. Both of them really were the weakest provinces in the Eastern Continent. Supposedly, Daoist Black should be feel happy that that the Martial Saint Dynasty came to the Qi Province to invite a genius to join them, because it’s good fortune for the Qi Province. But, he didn’t feel happy at all, and he believed that the Heavenly Sword Sect and Valley of Happiness felt the same.
They all knew very well what kind of person Nanbei Chao was. He was not someone who would be content with a small place like this. Even if he wasn’t invited to join the Martial Palace, the overall picture of the Qi Province would still be broken apart by this man. Once Nanbei Chao joins the Martial Palace and gets cultivated by both the Martial Palace and the Martial Saint Dynasty, his cultivation level will soar up into the skies. With the intense relations.h.i.+p between the Qi Province’s four big sects, all three other sects would have to soon face a huge threat.
But Jiang Chen who was sitting opposite of them had an excited expression. His mind was experiencing a huge fluctuation now. He never feared his enemy becoming strong, because in his mind, the more powerful his enemy was, the bigger challenge he would have to face. The discovery of the Martial Saint Dynasty and Martial Palace had sent a turmoil through his mind. In an instant, he had discovered a new target; the Martial Saint Dynasty and the Martial Palace.
Nanbei Chao was someone who wouldn’t be content with a small place, and Jiang Chen was a true dragon who would sooner or later soar through the highest of heavens. The small Qi Province was just a tiny stepping stone for Jiang Chen’s grand future, and thus, the Martial Palace and the Martial Saint Dynasty had become his next target.
Jiang Chen had great ambitions and sooner or later, he would reach the top of the Eastern Continent and begin his journey back to the Divine Continent. He would reclaim what belonged to him in his previous life. His Saint Sword was still residing in Cliff of Saints, and 100 years ago, he had used it to split open the doorway to the Realm of Immortals. In this life, he was going to slice the heavens.
This was Jiang Chen’s grand ambition. The Qi Province was just his first step towards his final goal, the Martial Saint Dynasty and the Martial Palace was his next step.
“That doesn’t matter to me. The stronger Nanbei Chao becomes, the better it will be. I’m never afraid of my opponent becoming stronger. If not, the one-year fight appointment would just be meaningless. Sect Chief, don’t worry too much, the overall state of the Qi Province will soon change, and it won’t take long before it happens. However, it won’t be because of Nanbei Chao, but me, Jiang Chen.”
Jiang Chen slowly stood up from his seat. With both hands behind his back, and his head tilted a little bit upwards, he stared at the moon above the skies with a pair of bright eyes. The energy he emitted couldn’t be ignored.
Daoist Black and Guo Shan looked at each other, both of them could see a shocked look in their eyes. Jiang Chen had always given them a different kind of impression, and right now, this young man right in front of them seemed so mighty. It was the spirit of one trying to reach the top of the heavens. He was just standing there, but he gave them an impression that he was someone above all, making it impossible for them to not admire him.
“Fine, Jiang Chen, you’re truly amazing. Your potential is actually much greater than Nanbei Chao’s, and I truly hope the Black Sect will have a peerless genius. And I wish that one day, the Black Sect’s name will be known throughout the entire Eastern Continent.”
Daoist Black stood up, then he patted Jiang Chen’s shoulder and left.
“Brother, you’re a man full of miracles, there is nothing in this world that you cannot accomplish. I believe that even Nanbei Chao can’t get in your way.”
Guo Shan sincerely said, “However, you cannot underestimate Nanbei Chao. He has now broken through to the Divine Core realm, so you need to have a sense of urgency, and you can’t relax with your cultivation.”
“I found a treasure during my trip to Misty Mountain, and with it, I believe I can break through to the Late Heavenly Core realm. Older brother Guo, I’ll return to my place and enter secluded cultivation, please help me take good care of Little Yu and Brother Yan.”
Jiang Chen cupped his fist towards Guo Shan.
“Brother, you just focus on your cultivation, your brother I will take care of everything here.”
Guo Shan patted his own chest as he promised.
Jiang Chen led Big Yellow and left Guo Shan’s mountain peak, then he returned to his own courtyard. Although he had broken through to the Heavenly Core realm, he still hadn’t officially become an inner circle disciple, so he was still staying at the same place.
Of course, Jiang Chen didn’t really care about the inner circle t.i.tle. With his current reputation in the Black Sect, even the Divine Core Sect Elders had to be respectful in front of him. That t.i.tle meant nothing for him.
The damaged courtyard had already been repaired by w.a.n.g Yun and the other disciples, and it looked just like it previously did. When Jiang Chen returned to his courtyard, he immediately entered secluded cultivation.
“Big Yellow, I’m going to enter secluded cultivation and absorb this golden egg, and I think I need about 1-2 days to do it. Please help me guard the place for the time being, don’t allow anyone to disturb me during this period.”
Jiang Chen said.
“d.a.m.n you, you always ask daddy here to do it! Master dog is a mighty existence, but you still ask me to guard the place for you!”
Big Yellow said with a slight hint of depression in his words.
Jiang Chen rolled his eyes, then he slapped Big Yellow’s head. He immediately recalled that every time he had asked Big Yellow to guard while he cultivated, this dog had gone to sleep. Of course, Big Yellow would yield a leap in his cultivation every time he woke up from his slumber.
“d.a.m.ned dog, shut up and do as I say, unless you’re going to sleep. However, if you do go to sleep, you better break through to the Divine Core realm! If you don’t guard me during my secluded cultivation, and don’t break through to the Divine Core realm, daddy here will break your dog b.a.l.l.s for sure!”
After threatening Big Yellow, Jiang Chen turned around and walked into his room while ignoring the murderous glare from Big Yellow.
“How dare he threaten to break my dog b.a.l.l.s?! This is ridiculous! d.a.m.n it, master dog is so p.i.s.sed off, ruff ruff ruff! d.a.m.n buddy, daddy will bite your b.u.t.t once your finish cultivating!”
Big Yellow grinded his teeth as he bounced and rolled around angrily in the courtyard.
Within the room, Jiang Chen was sitting on a cus.h.i.+on with his legs crossed. He adjusted himself to an optimal condition, then he retrieved the golden egg from his storage ring.
“This golden egg contains the source energy of Firethorn Savage, and the energy is ma.s.sive. If I can absorb it all, I will be able to form another 100 Dragon Marks and break through to the Late Heavenly Core realm. When that time comes, those ordinary Mid Divine Core warrior won’t be my match any more.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. This golden egg was definitely an unexpected gain during his trip to Misty Mountain. He was soon going to enter Inferno h.e.l.l, and it was a place filled with great dangers. If he was able to break through to the Late Heavenly Core realm and increase his overall combat strength, then that would give him more confidence when entering Inferno h.e.l.l.
Besides, Jiang Chen witnessed how Firethorn Savage fought, he had a really great interest in his innate ability. The ability gave him a powerful defense, as well as an attack. If Jiang Chen was able to inherit Firethorn Savage’s innate ability, it would give him another really powerful skill.
Buzzing started sounding out from Jiang Chen’s body. The Dragon Transformation skill had begun circulating at full speed and absorbing the golden egg bit by bit.
Early morning the next day, when the sun appeared in the skies far away, a loud shout suddenly sounded out near the Black Sect’s main gate.
“Jiang Chen, come out and face your death now!”
The shout was loud as a clap of thunder, and it sounded out throughout the entire Black Mountain. The sound waves turned into ripples which swept across the entire place, causing everyone in the Black Sect to hear it loud and clearly.
“Who the h.e.l.l is that? Why is he shouting near the main gate so early in the morning? Does he think the Black Sect has no one who can defeat him?”
“d.a.m.n it, who the f.u.c.k is that, how dare he come to our Black Sect and ask senior disciple Jiang to face his death? Is he here to commit suicide?”
“I think he came here to commit suicide. Last time this happened, that Li Wuling from the Heavenly Sword Sect came here early in the morning and wanted to kill senior disciple Jiang to avenge his brother, Li Wushuang, but in the end, he was killed by senior disciple Jiang.”
“Let’s go check it out, let’s find out who is seeking his own death so eagerly.”
Soon after, many disciples emerged from the Black Sect. All inner circle disciple were flying towards the scene, and the outer circle disciples were sprinting towards the scene.
Right at this moment, above the skies outside the Black Sect, a man wearing a grey robe was floating in the skies. The man looked to be in his late twenties, he had a handsome face, and he portrayed a domineering image. He was unleash an imposing energy, and his killing intent was soaring.
A short sword was embroidered on the man’s chest; it was the Heavenly Sword Sect symbol.
“d.a.m.n it, he is from the Heavenly Sword Sect, but who is this guy? Why have I never seen him before?”
“Such powerful energy, he is a Divine Core warrior! Since when did the Heavenly Sword Sect have such a young Divine Core warrior?”
“I know him, his name is Yun Can. He was once the number one genius in the Heavenly Sword Sect, and he broken through to the Divine Core realm two years ago and became one of the few Heavenly Sword Sect’s core disciples. After that, he went somewhere to train, and now he is back."
“What? A Heavenly Sword Sect core disciple? Any disciple from the four big sects who can break through to the Divine Core realm before becoming 30 years old would become a core disciples, but there is only a limited number of core disciples, and most of them have gone to some bigger places to train. Thus, most of them are not residing within their respective sects. I think this Yun Can is here to kill senior disciple Jiang and avenge Liang Xiao.”
Many people recognized this man, he was a core disciple from the Heavenly Sword Sect. In the Qi Province, core disciples was just a symbolic t.i.tle. Normally, there wouldn’t be more than 2 core disciples in every individual sect. Those who could become a core disciples was usually a rare genius, and all of them had their own prides. Once they broke through to the Divine Core realm, they would leave the Qi Province and cultivate themselves in bigger and stronger provinces.
Yun Can was a rare genius from the Heavenly Sword Sect. He had broken through to the Divine Core realm two years ago and had left the Heavenly Sword Sect, and he just came back recently and learned that Liang Xiao was killed by Jiang Chen. That’s why he became so angry and came to the Black Sect to kill Jiang Chen.
“A core disciple, that’s a real genius! Those Sect Elders of the Heavenly Sword Sect couldn’t attack senior disciple Jiang personally after he killed Liang Xiao, and there are no more disciples who can defeat senior disciple Jiang amongst all younger generation disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect. Since Yun Can is back, they can use a younger generation genius to challenge another one, that would give them an excellent excuse.”
“Those core disciples are all abnormal monsters! Although Yun Can is only an Early Divine Core warrior, he is able to fight a Mid Divine Core warrior! I’m afraid senior disciple Jiang won’t be his match at all.”
