Chapter 197 – The Miserable Monster
After Guo Shan had obtained complete control of the Blood Banner, Jiang Chen brought Big Yellow with him and left Palace Black.
Decades ago, Blood Moon Shaman had used the Blood Banner to wreak havoc in the Qi Province. He was invincible back then mostly because of the Blood Banner. Since Guo Shan was a Mid Divine Core warrior, there was no problems with him controlling it. With the Blood Banner’s help, Guo Shan’s combat strength would improve significantly, and Fan Zhongtang would not be his match.
That’s the reason Jiang Chen felt safe in leaving Yan Chenyu and Han Yan behind. He had to leave to help Han Yan, he didn’t want to see anything bad happening to him again.
Within Palace Black, Daoist Black had been waiting for quite some time. When he saw Jiang Chen and Big Yellow, he immediately walked towards them.
“Jiang Chen, the trip to Inferno h.e.l.l really isn’t something fun. I still hope you can give it a second thought.”
Daoist Black reminded Jiang Chen once more with a serious tone.
“I won’t change my mind. Sect Chief, please open up the path to Inferno h.e.l.l for me.”
Jiang Chen had a determined look, he was going to Inferno h.e.l.l no matter what.
“Fine, follow me.”
Daoist Black didn’t say anything else. He led Jiang Chen and Big Yellow towards the depths of Palace Black.
They came across a long corridor, which they could clearly feel was leading downwards. The corridor was pretty dark, and after having traveled around three miles, a steel door appeared in front of them.
“I didn’t know there was such a place hidden in the Black Sect.”
Jiang Chen felt surprised. There was nothing special outside Palace Black, and he had never expected a hidden place like this within.
“The portal to Inferno h.e.l.l is mysterious, we need to hide it properly.”
Daoist Black said.
“It’s right behind this steel door?”
Jiang Chen asked.
Daoist Black waved his hand and unleashed a beam of light onto the steel door. A click immediately sounded out from the door. It looked like it hadn’t been opened for quite a long time, or perhaps it had only been opened a few times, which is why it produced such a rusty sound when opening.
Behind the steel door was a s.p.a.cious secret chamber, and it was sealed on all sides. Right in the middle of the secret chamber there was an illusory portal. It was floating endlessly like water while emitting bright lights.
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up, he was very familiar with this kind of portal, so he could tell what it was with just a single look.
“That’s right, it’s the portal to Inferno h.e.l.l.”
Daoist Black nodded his head.
“Last time, Guan Yiyun told me it was an ancient portal, but this portal doesn’t look old at all. I think it was made by a Combat King warrior. The man who made this is really skillful with formations, the portal is different from all other kinds of portals and formations, and it’s related to the dimensional forces. Without advanced knowledge about formations, ordinary Combat King warriors would never be able to make a real portal.”
Jiang Chen said with a calm voice.
Daoist Black’s expression changed. He stared at Jiang Chen with awe. Once again, he had been shocked by Jiang Chen. This portal had been here for decades, and even Daoist Black couldn’t tell anything about it. But Jiang Chen, he was able to tell everything about it with just one look, and he could even tell that it was made by a Combat King warrior.
A Combat King warrior, a mighty Combat King, an ultimate person who has mastered the dimensional forces, that’s someone who stands at the top of the world, a man Daoist Black couldn’t even imagine. His life’s biggest goal was to reach the Combat Soul realm. As for the mighty Combat King realm, he could only dream about it during his deep slumber.
“This portal was given to us decades ago by the Martial Saint Dynasty. I suppose every single big sect in all 28 provinces of the Eastern Continent has the same portal. Even I don’t know anything about this portal, I didn’t expect it was made by a Combat King warrior.”
Daoist Black had mixed feelings about this. The Martial Saint Dynasty ruled the entire Eastern Continent, and they had given the same portal to every single big sect and made sure that each province had this portal so that they could send people into Inferno h.e.l.lo. Even the Qi Province and the Qian Province had this portal.
“Looks like there is a Combat King warrior in the Martial Saint Dynasty, not bad.”
Jiang Chen nodded his head. It looked like this Martial Saint Dynasty was much stronger than he had expected. A Combat King warrior, it was considered a reputable existence, even in the Divine Continent. It’s quite normal for the Martial Saint Dynasty to have a Combat King warrior, as they ruled the entire Eastern Continent.
“Sect Chief, hurry up and activate the portal.”
Jiang Chen didn’t want to waste any more time.
Daoist Black nodded his head. With a flip of his palm, he retrieved a golden colored token from his storage ring. It was about the size of a palm, and it looked to fit right into the slot located at the center of the portal.
Daoist Black took a step forward and slowly placed the token into the portal. An instant later, the portal produced a buzzing sound, then it started functioning.
Followed by the activation of the portal, a wild wind swept across the entire secret chamber. Dimensional forces were leaking out from the portal, making it difficult for them to breath.
Not long after that, a pitch black tunnel appeared right in the middle of the portal.Freezing winds immediately violently blew out from it. It was so cold that it felt like it was coming from an eternal darkness, it sent a s.h.i.+ver down the spines of all who heard it.
Even Daoist Black’s expression changed upon sensing this. Jiang Chen, however, was standing right in front of the storm with an indifferent expression. He actually felt a sudden nostalgia from this feeling. Big Yellow stuck his tongue out and felt excited as well. This dog doesn’t fear danger, he became excited upon encountering danger. He and Jiang Chen loved adventures, they liked the feeling of excitement.
“Hurry, the tunnel can only be maintained for three breaths time.”
Daoist Black hurriedly said.
“Big Yellow, let’s go.”
Jiang Chen leapt forward and disappeared into the tunnel. Big Yellow followed closely behind him and disappeared into the tunnel at the same time.
Right as Jiang Chen and Big Yellow disappeared, the tunnel instantly closed. The portal had also stopped functioning. The golden token popped out from the slot and fell right into Daoist Black's hand.
Daoist Black stared motionlessly at the portal, then he said to himself, “Jiang Chen, I really hope you can come out from Inferno h.e.l.l safely. The Black Sect’s future destiny is in your hands.”
The freezing wild wind never seemed to stop. Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were moving along the flow, there were whirlwinds everywhere, and the tunnel looked variegated.
The tunnel was pretty narrow actually, it only allowed one person to pa.s.s through at one time, so it caused Big Yellow’s body to feel a tight squeeze. The whirlwinds kept blowing into the tunnel, causing their faces to hurt.
“d.a.m.n it, f.u.c.k! What kind of a s.h.i.+tty trash tunnel is this?!”
Big Yellow kept cursing. The tunnel seemed shaky and unstable, as if it was going to collapse at any time.
“That Combat King warrior seems to have just mastered the dimensional forces. He was using an advanced portal to construct this dimensional tunnel, therefore, it isn’t stable. We better be careful. Do not unleash any energy here, if we drift into some dimensional turbulence, it will be huge trouble!”
Jiang Chen reminded.
“d.a.m.n it, if we drift into a dimensional turbulence, we’ll be trapped for more than a hundred years!”
Big Yellow felt even more depressed. He looked around and found out there were multicolored dimensional turbulences everywhere. Also, from time to time, a ma.s.sive dimensional typhoon would appear in their sights. Luckily, it was Jiang Chen and Big Yellow who was here. If it was any other ordinary person, they would probably be p.i.s.sing their pants due to fear.
Dimensional turbulence, that was a place where coldness and darkness blended together. It was tough to find a dimensional node within, and even a Combat King warrior who has mastered the dimensional forces would find it hard to get out from it. Only those mighty Combat Emperors would be able to walk out from it with ease.
Besides that, the dimensional typhoon within the dimensional turbulences was the deadliest existence. It was just a dreadful monster that would cause anything that gets dragged into it to perish.
Jiang Chen had a bitter smile on his face. If this was his past life, he would be able to go anywhere in this world with the Dimensional s.h.i.+ft skill. Entering Inferno h.e.l.l would take him just a few seconds.
The mighty Saint warriors had all completely mastered the dimensional rules, they could walk anywhere they wanted amongst the dimensional s.p.a.ce. Also, any Saint who has mastered the Dimension s.h.i.+ft skill could break open dimensional barrier with their bare hands and walk in like it was their backyard.
No matter what, it was all history now. Currently, Jiang Chen was just a small potato at the Heavenly Core realm, he had a long way to go.
Within the teleportation tunnel, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were admiring the breath-taking dimensional turbulence around them while chit-chatting. After staying for a full day in the tunnel for an entire day, the duo finally saw a light at the end of the tunnel.
“We’re almost there.”
Seeing this, Jiang Chen’s spirit rose.
“d.a.m.n it, finally, we can leave this d.a.m.ned place! I wonder what Inferno h.e.l.l looks like.”
Big Yellow was so excited that he jumped up from where stood with his tongue sticking out from his mouth. With his jump, he made a crack in the tunnel.
“d.a.m.ned dog, you better be careful! Daddy doesn’t want to drift into a dimension turbulence and die at this young age!”
Jiang Chen slapped Big Yellow’s head, scolding him in a hopeless manner.
The light at the end of the tunnel became brighter, and soon after, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow arrived at the end of the tunnel. The duo held their breath as they were getting ready to enter Inferno h.e.l.l.
Right now, within Inferno h.e.l.l, some place within an abyss.
It was a foggy place, and everything here looked gray. The abyss was a completely desolated area, and rocks were everywhere. A monster with a body fully covered with black scales was roaming around in this area.
This monster was over 3 meters tall, its whole body was fuming with frightening black mist. It only had one eye, which was positioned vertically right in the middle top of his face. It also only had one nostril and one huge mouth below the eye. The eye, nose and the mouth, they were all lined up in a straight line, and it looked really fearsome and savage.
The monster was roaming around, its eyeball was rolling around in full alert, as if it was searching for something.
A loud banging sound could be heard from the skies above. It was as loud as a fierce thunder strike. A hole in the dimension appeared, and a figure shout out from it. The monster was shocked by the sound, so it raised its head to look towards the direction. In an instant, an unknown object fell onto its head.
The arrival of this unknown object was so sudden, this monster didn’t even have time to react. Also, the object carried a ma.s.sive amount of force when fell onto his head, this monster cried out horribly and started rolling on the floor.
The monster was furious. It immediately stood up on the ground to look at the unknown object, then another loud bang sounded out from above. Once again, another unknown object fell onto its head. When the unknown object hit its head, the monster could hear it scolding out loudly, “d.a.m.n it, what a s.h.i.+tty tunnel!”
