Chapter 220 – Chaos is coming
All innate abilities consumed a huge amount of energy. The strong an innate ability was, the more energy it would consume. The Soul Crunching Tune unleashed by Big Yellow was a terrifying attack, it was an invisible attack that could catch anyone by surprise. But at the same time, it used up a huge amount of Big Yellow’s energy. Judging from the amount of energy it used, Big Yellow could only unleash it once every two weeks. If he used it twice within two weeks, he would receive a backlash he’s not capable of withstanding.
All of Zhang Han’s men were stunned. Their chief, the powerful Mid Divine Core warrior, had just been killed by a dog’s roar. This dog was actually the leader of the ground, a truly formidable existence.
“All of you b.a.s.t.a.r.ds, are you going to submit now?”
Big Yellow asked as he raised his head.
Submit or not? What a joke, could they actually choose not to submit? Even Zhang Han was killed. Looking at how the dog was behaving, perhaps just saying ‘no’ would be enough to get killed.
“Submitting to us your best option. Besides, there’s nothing bad about submitting to us. Chief Jiang Chen and master dog will ensure your safety in Inferno City!”
w.a.n.g Heng said while bloated with pride. Ever since he had come to Inferno h.e.l.l, this was the first time he had been so c.o.c.ky.
“We’re willing to submit.”
All of the men bowed down in front of Big Yellow. To them, it didn’t matter which chief they followed. After all, they had to give up parts of the treasures they found to their chief. Switching from Zhang Han to Jiang Jiang Chen brought them nothing bad. In fact, Jiang Chen was much stronger compared to Zhang Han, which made him an even better chief.
“Master dog, where is our next target?”
w.a.n.g Heng asked in a flattering manner.
“Bring Zhang Han’s body to all the powers and alliances in the outer perimeter, let them know what the consequences of not submitting to us area. Tell them to come greet this master dog at out stronghold.”
Big Yellow was feeling majestic. After killing Zhang Han, he wanted to be even more domineering. He was too lazy to visit those strongholds one by one, therefore he wanted all of them to come greet him. He was addicted to the feeling of being an emperor.
“Perfect, with master dog’s n.o.ble status, this is how it should be!”
w.a.n.g Heng was really good at flattering, Big Yellow felt pleasantly enjoyed upon hearing his words.
“Tell them; those who haven’t come and submitted to us by tomorrow, master dog will mercilessly kill!”
Big Yellow portrayed a majestic and solemn image, it was like he was floating on a cloud right now.
The same day, Tian Yishan brought Zhang Han’s dead body and went to all the alliances in the outer perimeter. There were about thirty alliances in the outer perimeter, each of them equal to one another with Mid Divine Core warriors as their leaders. There were no Late Divine Core warriors in these strongholds, as all of them had gone to the middle area and center of Inferno City.
The death of Zhang Han had caused turmoil to appear in many alliances, and it also made many people hear Big Yellow’s name. In just a short period of time, he had become someone everyone knew about. It wasn’t until now that these people realized there was a formidable dog that followed Jiang Chen.
“d.a.m.n it, I didn’t expect this Jiang Chen to be even more ambitious than Yang Shuo! He actually want to rule the entire outer perimeter!”
“If the entire outer perimeter ends up in Jiang Chen’s hands, we’ll have to surrender parts of our treasures found in every trip. Although it’s just a small amount, but with so many alliances together, he will get a huge amount in the end! That means that Jiang Chen can just sit back and relax while enjoying the harvest of our hard effort! He is becoming the real king of the outer perimeter.”
“Sigh… we don’t have the ability to resist, even the powerful Zhang Han has been killed. If we don’t follow their orders, I’m afraid we’ll have to face the same consequences.”
For a moment, the entire outer perimeter had entered a state of turmoil. The death of Zhang Han had impacted all the alliances. If they refused to submit, they might be the next ones to face death.
Within a stronghold located at the Far East side of the outer perimeter, a few men were sitting within a hall. The atmosphere seemed pretty depressing. The six men were all Mid Divine Core warriors; they were the chiefs of different alliances.
“The dog has given his warning, if we don’t submit by tomorrow, he’ll come to kill us.”
“Hmph! This is ridiculous! Even Yang Shuo who had wild ambitions didn’t dare try to rule the entire outer perimeter! Inferno City has existed for a long time, and the people here either die or leave, it has always been like that! Not once has it been united before, and Jiang Chen is trying to change that!”
“f.u.c.k! Daddy isn’t going to submit to them! It has already been very tough for us to survive in Inferno h.e.l.l, and the only reason why they want us to submit to them is because of the crystal cores! Killing a Nine Life Crystal Beast is extremely difficult, and the crystal cores we get for our own consumption already isn’t enough! If they want us to give a portion of our crystal cores to them, I don’t think we’ll be able to survive any longer! I am not going to follow their orders!”
A strong man with a scar on his face said in an angry manner. Actually, all of them misunderstood the actual reason. Jiang Chen didn’t even know what was happening, it was all Big Yellow’s idea! As for why Big Yellow wanted to do it? It was because he wanted to show off his mightiness, it had nothing to do with crystal cores. Big Yellow hadn’t even thought about the crystal cores.
Of course, wanting to rule the entire outer perimeter just to show off his mightiness, this reason would just make anyone become speechless.
“Brother Zhuge, say something please, amongst all thirty alliances, you are the strongest man, you have reached the peak Mid Divine Core realm! Although there are always conflicts between the alliances, none of us are willing to be ruled by one person.”
An old man in his fifties said. The rest of the men looked at the adult man who was sitting at the upper end of the table.
The man had pale skin, and he looked refined and cultured. He was waving a folding fan in his hand, while portraying a calm image. However, his eyes were blinking with a cold light. This proved that he was not someone who could easily be messed with. None of the men who could survive in the harsh environment of Inferno h.e.l.l were good and honest people.
“If he could stay peacefully with us, of course we would show him the respect he deserves. After all, none of us have the ability to defeat him. But, if this Jiang Chen really wants to rule the entire outer perimeter, then I, Zhuge Yun will be the first one to stand up again him! Besides, it isn’t Jiang Chen who personally stands out in this matter, but that dog. If we really submit to a dog, our dignities will be washed down in the drain! Therefore, we have to fight back!”
Zhuge Yun said as he narrowed his eyes.
“Brother Zhuge, with our strength, do you really think we are a match for Jiang Chen?”
Someone asked with a frown on his face.
“That Jiang Chen is truly powerful, even Yang Shuo wasn’t his match. However, although he has incredible talent, he isn’t even a Divine Core warrior yet! If we can gather the strength of all of us, if we can gather all the Divine Core warriors in the outer perimeter and attack him, with the strength of everyone combined, even if Jiang Chen and that dog has three heads and six armor, I don’t believe they’ll be able to withstand our attacks!”
Zhuge Yun said with a grin on his face.
“There are at least 50 Mid Divine Core warriors in the outer perimeter, and together with all the Early Divine Core warriors, there will be nearly 300 of us! This is a force that can surely set the world on fire! No matter how talented that Jiang Chen is, there is no way he can fight so many people! I’m sure he won’t even be able to defend himself if all of us attack at the same time!”
Someone agreed with the idea.
“The thing is, how are we going to combine all the alliances?”
A man asked as he furrowed his brows.
“This matter concerns everyone’s future benefits, I believe that none of the chiefs from the alliances are willing to be controlled by someone. Now, all of you secretly proceed to the strongholds and invite them over here. I believe they won’t have any objections. This time, we need to form the greatest alliance for the first time in history, we need to kill Jiang Chen! We can’t allow the situation in the outer perimeter be changed just because of a newcomer.”
Zhuge Yun stood up from his seat, a sinister look emerged on his face.
“Alright, we’ll go right now. That Jiang Chen has obtained a lot of great stuff after killing Yang Shuo, so once we kill him, we’ll divide it all equally.”
Someone said, and all the other men began laughing out loudly. In their minds, Jiang Chen was already a dead man, and they were just waiting to divide all his belongings.
Right at this moment, all the chiefs of every single alliance were clueless about what to do next. They were all cruel and merciless men, and were used to being chiefs of themselves. None of them were willing to be controlled by someone else. Besides, once they sub they submit to Jiang Chen, they would have to surrender a portion of all treasures found. This was something that none of them could do anything about.
But, they didn’t have the strength to fight their opponent. They had witnessed how strong Jiang Chen was, and now there was even a big yellow dog. Even Zhang Han was killed by the big yellow dog. If they really stood out and fought back, what awaited them would be the same tragic ending that Zhang Han met.
Therefore, Zhuge Yun’s invitation had made them feel really excited. All these chiefs had similar thoughts, even the two chiefs who went to show their friendliness to Jiang Chen before this were the same; they just wanted to live in peace alongside Jiang Chen, they didn’t want to be ruled by him.
To no one’s surprise, all the alliance gathered together.
“Alright, it looks like all of us have the same thoughts. Although that Jiang Chen and that big yellow dog are really strong, with so many of us working together, I’m sure we’ll be able to kill them both. I, Zhuge Yun promise, once we kill Jiang Chen, we’ll equally divide all his belongings.”
Zhuge Yun said.
“Alright, let’s kill that ignorant kid!”
“Good! He just arrived here, and he wants to rule the entire outer perimeter! He really has no idea who he is!”
All the chiefs were filled with righteous indignation.
“Don’t get too excited, let’s come up with a strategy now. Tomorrow, we strike!”
Zhuge Yun said.
Big Yellow and his men had no idea that a secret meeting between the alliances was going on. Big Yellow was leisurely sitting on his rattan chair, waiting for all the alliances to submit and greet him.
“Big Yellow, in my opinion, I think it’s better if we send someone to check on those alliances. Someone ruling the entire outer perimeter has never happened before, so I fear those chiefs will do something behind our backs.”
Guan Yiyun said with a frown on his face.
“Yiyun, why are you so cowardly? The mightiness of this master dog has shone through the entire outer perimeter, even Zhang Han has been killed by me! They won’t have the courage to resist us!”
After Big Yellow had broken through to the Divine Core realm, he had started behaving domineeringly. However, he had no idea that because of him showing off, he was going to bring unprecedented chaos to the outer perimeter of Inferno City.
At the same time, Jiang Chen who was in secluded cultivation had finally absorbed all the Divine Core souls and crystal cores. He had formed another 150 Dragon Marks in his Qi Sea, and he currently had a total number of seven hundred and fifty Dragon Marks, just one more step and he would be able to break through to the Divine Core realm and his combat strength would advance to another terrifying level.
The more Jiang Chen’s Dragon Transformation skill’s cultivation advance, the more energy would be required to form new Dragon Marks, and it got much tougher when he approached the boundaries of a brand new realm. If not for this, he would be able to form much more Dragon Marks with this amount of souls and crystal cores.
