Chapter 204 – Actually a Fellow Disciple
Jiang Chen wore white clothes, and his black hair was fluttering in the breeze. His delicate and handsome face couldn’t hide his ruthlessness. In the blink of an eye, he and Big Yellow landed within the valley.
“Kid, who are you?”
One of the Early Divine Core warriors stared at Jiang Chen and asked with a cruel voice.
“Someone who doesn’t like injustice. When I see something I don’t like, I’ll jump in and get my hands dirty. You three are all Divine Core warriors, don’t you feel ashamed about bullying a seriously injured man?”
Jiang Chen said with an indifferent tone.
Hearing this, all three men burst out into laughter. It was as if they had heard the funniest joke in their life. The way they looked at Jiang Chen was as if they were looking at an idiot.
“Little brother, hurry up and get out of here, you’re not their match!”
Tian Yishan turned to Jiang Chen and said. He knew he was going to die today, and he didn’t want to involve anyone else. Besides, he could tell that this young man in white had just come to Inferno h.e.l.l, and didn’t know the rules for survival in Inferno h.e.l.l. There was only one rule here – the weak are prey to the strong. No one would get involved in matters that didn’t involve them. There was only slaughter and bloodshed here. If an ordinary man had witnessed this scene, it would be normal for him to join the attacking group. As for those who acted bravely for a just cause, it was impossible to do such a thing in Inferno h.e.l.l, only an idiot would do so.
In fact, Jiang Chen was not someone who would act bravely for a just cause. He knew better than anyone else what kind of place this Inferno h.e.l.l was. If it wasn’t for him wanting more information regarding Guan Yiyun from Tian Yishan, he would not bother showing himself at all.
However, upon hearing Tian Yishan asking him to leave immediately, Jiang Chen’s impression of him became even better. Besides, this Tian Yishan was obviously a friend of Guan Yiyun. Therefore, Jiang Chen decided to save him.
“Someone who doesn’t like injustice? What a joke! Kid, do you not know the rule of Inferno h.e.l.l? Those who don’t like injustice are merely idiots. Looks like there’s something wrong with your brain as well. However, since you had the courage to stand out, I’ll fulfill your wish and allow you to die together with Tian Yishan.”
Another adult man said while laughing out loud.
“Kid, before we strike and kill you, hand all your valuable items over to us.”
The Mid Divine Core leader stared at Jiang Chen with an insidious look.
“You want my valuable items? Perfect, I also want to rob your valuable items! Looks like there is only way to solve this problem; I’ll have to attack all of you.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile.
“This kid is seeking death!”
One of the Early Divine Core warrior’s expression became stern, and he showed a strong killing intent. However, just when his killing intent leaked from his body, the young man in white had disappeared from his sights. In the next sect, he had appeared right in front of the man.
The man heard a slas.h.i.+ng sound, then he felt a violent tremble on his body. He felt like a huge mountain had just crashed into him. Following that, there was a s.h.i.+vering sensation that ran across his entire body.
The man immediately became startled, he had an intense feeling of death creeping up on him. He slowly lowered his head, then he saw a longsword having impaled his body, and his blood dripping down from the tip of the sword. His vital signs were fading away.
“I know the rules of survival much better than any of you, especially the rules of Inferno h.e.l.l.”
A bright smile appeared on Jiang Chen’s face, an innocent smile. However, in the man’s eyes, it was a devil’s smile.
The man let out a loud cry, and his voice turned hoa.r.s.e. This was the last sound he left in this world. The sword Jiang Chen had used to kill him was a high-ranked combat weapon, it was the Soaring Heavens Sword that Jiang Chen had s.n.a.t.c.hed from Yun Can. Jiang Chen unleashed a ma.s.sive amount of energy, shattering all of the man’s internal organs, and his life-force at the same time.
Jiang Chen slowly pulled out his sword. Right as the man’s body was about to fall down onto the ground, Jiang Chen removed his storage ring with lightning speed. These men had been in Inferno h.e.l.l for quite some time, so they must have obtained some nice items, and Jiang Chen really needed more crystal cores right now. Before he could b.u.mp into Nine Life Crystal Beasts, robbing someone else was the best option.
The man’s body fell onto the ground. They body had become without motion, and only fresh blood poured out from the wound right in the middle of the man’s chest, which looked terrifying.
Three people exclaimed at the same time. Even Tian Yishan was staring at Jiang Chen with awe, and a look of disbelief in his eyes. The other two men were even more shocked. Who would have expected that a young man with a mere Late Heavenly Core cultivation base could be so fierce and brutal? An Early Divine Core warrior couldn’t even withstand a single attack of his, and died on the spot.
“It’s your turn now.”
Jiang Chen raised the sword in his hand and pointed it towards the other two ferocious men, “I’ll give you both a chance, hand over your storage rings and destroy your Divine Cores.”
Jiang Chen’s words almost made both men trip on their own feet. This was ridiculous, what was the difference between destroying their own Divine Cores and committing suicide? After their Divine Cores were destroyed, they would become cripples! A cripple without any cultivation base would die within an hour in this Inferno h.e.l.l.
“Kid, do you know what you just did? The man you just killed worked for young master Yang Shuo! I think you came here seeking death!”
Another Early Divine Core man voiced out his threatening speech. But too bad, he had threatened the wrong man. Just as he finished his words, Jiang Chen disappeared from where he stood. The man could only feel a beam of light falling in front of his face. What happened next, the man would never be able to know.
Jiang Chen’s movement was too fast. He had chopped off the man’s head with his sword. When the head flew high into the skies, a deep, frightened expression could be seen on the face. The man had no idea how he was killed, and he had no idea why a Heavenly Core warrior could strike so quickly. It was so fast that even he, as a Divine Core warrior, didn’t have the time to react.
Tian Yishan exclaimed with great shock. He simply couldn’t believe his own eyes. He looked at Jiang Chen as if he was looking at a ghost, this young man looked only to be in his late teens, but was extremely strong and frightening. His opponent was a Divine Core warrior, and even Tian Yishan at perfect wouldn’t be able to kill his opponent so quickly and fiercely.
The fierce and brutal attacks of Jiang Chen had stunned the Mid Divine Core warriors. He stared at Jiang Chen, and the look of despise on his face had disappeared.
“You are the last one. I’ll give you the opportunity to strike first.”
Jiang Chen looked at the last man.
“Hmph! Looks like you are a genius disciple from some big sect. You’re really extraordinary, able to kill two Early Divine Core warriors with just your Late Heavenly Core cultivation base. But too bad, this is Inferno h.e.l.l, it doesn’t matter what status you have, or how big of a genius you are; only true combat strength is valued here. Although you were able to kill two Early Divine Core warriors, you are not my match. The different between an Early Divine Core warrior and a Mid Divine Core warrior is not something you can imagine.”
The man let out a cold snort, then he unleashed all of his energy. At the same time, a golden hammer that glowed in a golden light appeared in his hand. It was a high-ranked combat weapon.
A loud sound burst out from the golden hammer. The man raised the hammer high up into the air and forcefully struck it towards Jiang Chen.
“Let me show you the real difference.”
There was a look of defiance in Jiang Chen’s eyes. He held the sword with both hands and raised it up high. The sword produced an ear-splitting sound as a bright beam covered the sword. In an instant, Jiang Chen shouted out loudly and brought the sword down towards the man.
Two combat weapons collided into each other and let out a large amount of sparks. This was a brutal collision which caused both sides to bear the weight of a ma.s.sive amount of energy.
The ma.s.sive amount of force caused the man to fly back like a kite that just had its string cut.
While the man was still flying in the air, he couldn’t help but throw up a mouthful of blood. His face was filled with astonishment, and he had become speechless. The force that came from 600 Dragon Marks was not fun to encounter, and that combined with a high-ranked combat weapon, ordinary Mid Divine Core warriors would be no match for Jiang Chen. They wouldn’t even be able to withstand a single attack from Jiang Chen.
With extreme speed, Jiang Chen left a tail in the air and caught up with the man who was flying backwards. He swing the sword in his hand and neatly cut off the man’s head.
“Can’t even withstand stand a single blow.”
A grin appeared on Jiang Chen’s face. After successfully forming 600 Dragon Marks, his combat strength had reached an unimaginable stage. He stored the Soaring Heavens Sword, then he bent down and removed the storage ring from the man’s finger. He took it for himself without any guilt.
“What a monster.”
Big Yellow raised his head as he spoke. The current Jiang Chen had become incredibly much stronger than before. Although he was able to deal with Mid Divine Core warriors then, he wouldn’t be able to kill them so smoothly and neatly.
Tian Yishan who was standing beside had his mouth wide opened, he glanced at three dead bodies on the ground, and out of sudden, he couldn’t think of anything to say, he thought he was going to die today, but never expect someone so mighty would appeared out of nowhere and killed all three enemies easily.
“My name is Tian Yishan, thank you for saving me!”
Tian Yishan bowed deeply towards Jiang Chen. His face was filled with grat.i.tude, as Jiang Chen had saved his life today.
“I’m Jiang Chen, from the Black Sect.”
Jiang Chen introduced himself. After that, he asked, “Just now, you mentioned Guan Yiyun, I want to know more about his current situation.”
Upon hearing Jiang Chen mention the Black Sect, Tian Yishan was shocked, then an extremely joyful expression emerged on his face.
“So brother Jiang, you’re also from the Black Sect! Haha, I never knew we had such a genius in the Black Sect! You’re the Black Sect’s biggest fortune!”
Tian Yishan let out a hearty laugh.
“You’re from the Black Sect as well?”
Jiang Chen furrowed his brows. He had never seen this guy in the Black Sect before.
“That’s right, I’m a core disciple of the Black Sect. When I became a core disciple two years ago, I immediately left the Qi Province and went to the Jian Province to further improve my cultivations; that’s why brother Jiang doesn’t know about me.”
Tian Yishan explained.
“So you’re the core disciple.”
Jiang Chen’s mind became clear now. The Qi Province was the smallest province in the Eastern Continent, and the core disciples from the four big sects would leave the Qi Province after breaking through to the Divine Core realm, and go to a bigger territory to cultivate. This Tian Yishan was actually a core disciple of the Black Sect, that explained why he was with Guan Yiyun before this.
