Chapter 221 – Killing Eight Men with a Single Strike
Jiang Chen was sitting on the floor with his legs crossed. Ma.s.sive energy ripples covered his entire body, continuously producing buzzing sounds.
“Perfect, 750 Dragon Marks, my cultivation has reached the peak Heavenly Core realm, and my combat strength has been increased once again. Now I won’t have to fear those ordinary Late Divine Core warriors.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes were glowing brightly, he was portraying an incredible confidence in himself, confidence that came from his powerful strength. With his qi and blood being as strong as that of a dragon, body as hard as solid metal, he could unleash an enormous amount of energy when the Dragon Marks vibrated. In this world, there were no other Heavenly Core warriors who could be so formidable. His combat strength represented the absolute limits of what a Heavenly Core warrior could ever achieve. It had reached a peak that no one else could ever come close to.
“As for the remaining 50 Dragon Marks, I’ll have to form them through meditation and comprehension, I don’t believe it’ll take long before I’ll be able to break through to the Divine Core realm. With the formidable Dragon Transformation skill, I’ll be able to kill ordinary Late Divine Core warriors with ease once I break through. Unless my opponent is a genius from a big sect, no Divine Core warrior will be my match.”
A smile emerged on Jiang Chen’s face. Although it was really difficult to cultivate the Dragon Transformation skill, as it required a ma.s.sive amount of energy, the energy it brought him was really frightening, and Jiang Chen had proved that with his combat history.
After the Dragon Marks had been formed, Jiang Chen didn’t leave the room, but instead closed his eyes. He wanted to use the Dragon Transformation skill to sooth the newly formed Dragon Marks and settle down his cultivation base.
The next day!
Just when Big Yellow was getting impatient while waiting, the entire outer perimeter suddenly filled up with enormous killing intents. Countless figures suddenly descended from the skies and landed in the stronghold where Big Yellow was residing.
Over thirty alliances from the outer perimeter, a total of nearly 500 hundred men had arrived at the scene, and more than half of them were Divine Core warriors. This was a huge combined alliance, and its combat strength could suffocate anyone.
An alliance like this was more than enough to wreak complete havoc in the Qi Province and cause a huge disturbance to the people.
“Kaka, even if you all want to come and greet this master dog, there is no need to come in such a huge crowd.”
Big Yellow was laughing out loudly without thinking too much.
“Master dog, I don’t think they came here to submit to us.”
w.a.n.g Heng whispered. Tian Yishan and the few other men had a change in expression as well.
“d.a.m.n you, master dog is not an idiot, of course I can tell they aren’t here to submit to me. f.u.c.k! This group of b.a.s.t.a.r.ds, how dare they do this to master dog?!”
Big Yellow was cursing out loudly. It looked like the scene in his mind where everyone came to greet him wouldn’t happen. However, what he didn’t expect was, not only were these men not frightened by him, the actually initiated a counter-attack! This was outrageous!
In fact, Big Yellow’s approach to things in the outside world did not work at all in Inferno h.e.l.l. All men here lived on the edge of h.e.l.l, they had seen lots of bloodshed, and this made them become even crueler and more merciless than devils and demon beasts. If they were pushed too hard, they would do anything in order to strike back. Besides, they had now grouped up, and had very powerful combined combat strength. This removed their fear off Jiang Chen.
“Are you all trying to revolt?”
Guan Yiyun asked with a loud voice.
“Revolt? I don’t think that is a suitable word, as we’re just defending our own benefits. Don’t you think it’s ridiculous to ask us to submit to a dog?”
Zhuge Yun kept waving the folding fan in his hand as he spoke with a grin on his face.
“What are you guys trying to do? I’m sure you know the strength of our chief Jiang. If you dare challenge his dignity… well, it’s an action equal to seeking death!”
Tian Yishan was shouting out loudly as well.
“Haha, Tian Yishan, don’t be so naïve! Look at how many of us are here, we could make Jiang Chen drown just by spitting on him! No matter what, we’re going to kill Jiang Chen today, and every single one of you as well! After that, all your belongings will be ours!”
A fat man with a round face arrogantly threatened. The rest of the men were in high spirits as well. There was a saying that many hands made light work; none of these men had the courage to fight Jiang Chen if it was a few of them, but now, with more than a few hundred people here, it was a completely different story. They had the confidence that they could wipe out the entire stronghold and kill every single living being here.
Hearing this, Tian Yishan and the other men had dramatic changes to their expressions. They knew very well what the people in Inferno City were like. They could kill without even blinking their eyes, and none of these men were willing to be controlled by Jiang Chen. Obviously, they had grouped together to come here and kill them all today.
“Master Dog, what should we do now?”
w.a.n.g Heng’s expression had changed seriously as well; a ferocious look could be seen in his eyes. He just fully recovered from his injuries and absorbed all the energy in the Resurrection Pill, and that had caused his urge to break through to the Divine Core realm become even stronger, eventually leading to him breaking through. w.a.n.g Heng was not someone scared of death, and if they really wanted to fight, he would welcome them with open arms.
But looking at the huge group in front of him, it seemed like there was no way they could really fight them. The gap between their strengths was simply too huge! The group comprised of all the warriors in the outer perimeter… Even if Jiang Chen were to personally attack, he probably wouldn’t be able to turn the tables.
“d.a.m.n it, since these b.a.s.t.a.r.ds dare initiate an attack, master dog will go on a killing spree today! I will bite them all to death!”
Big Yellow was furious! He just showed his mightiness yesterday and killed Zhang Han with the Soul Crunching Tune, but not only did that not establish his authority, this group of b.a.s.t.a.r.ds actually had the audacity to strike back, to try and kill him! This was really outrageous!
Not only this, Zhuge Yun and the other men’s words caused a serious impact onto Big Yellow’s pride and self-esteem.
“f.u.c.k them, let’s fight! Our lives were given back to us by chief Jiang!”
In an imposing manner, Yang Meng shook his hand, causing a huge blade to instantly appear in his hand.
“You’re just a cheap dog, asking us to submit to you is just a plain joke! Big yellow dog, I’ll give you a chance, if you come forward and kneel down in front of me, I’ll consider sparing your life and adopting you as my pet!”
Zhuge Yun told Big Yellow while waving the folding fan in his hand.
“f.u.c.k you! If I don’t tear you to pieces today, master dog will kill myself!”
Both of Big Yellow’s eyes had become red, he had instantly become enraged. He, as the n.o.ble descendant of the Dragon Horse, who gave this guy the audacity to call him cheap? And he also asked him to kneel down in front of him, and he wanted adopt him. This was unbearable!
Big Yellow’s body swayed, and he turned into a golden light and da
“You’re seeking death!”
Zhuge Yun’s expression changed, but he dared not neglect Big Yellow’s attack. After all, Big Yellow had just killed Zhang Han, who was a Mid Divine Core warrior, and that proved that Big Yellow had strong abilities.
Zhuge Yun spread out his folding face and slapped it towards Big Yellow’s head. Although the folding fan in his hand looked usual, it was actually a rare high-ranked combat weapon.
When the folding fan hit Big Yellow’s head, a huge amount of sparks ignited from the center of the collision. The intense collision had repelled Zhuge Yun, forcing him to take two steps back.
“What a strong dog!”
Zhuge Yun’s expression instantly changed. He was a peak Mid Divine Core warrior, not someone whom Zhang Han could compare with. Also, he used a high-ranked combat weapon just now, and even with all this, he was forced back by Big Yellow. He began wondering just how hard Big Yellow’s head was.
“Kaka, how dare you b.a.s.t.a.r.ds insult this master dog? You really don’t know what death is!”
Big Yellow let out a loud laughter. He didn’t feel any fear, even when facing a group of hundreds of people. With his abilities, he would be able to run to the other side of the stronghold and back, unharmed. There was no way these men could kill Big Yellow, even if they had formed an alliance.
But, not everyone were Big Yellow. If these few hundred men struck at the same time, Tian Yishan and Guan Yiyun would certainly be killed. There was no chance for them to survive the attack.
“Brother Zhuge, let’s strike together and kill them all!”
Someone said in a cruel manner.
“Fine. Everyone listen up, kill every single person in this place. All Mid Divine Core warriors, pay close attention to Jiang Chen and this big yellow dog. When Jiang Chen comes out, we’ll strike at the same time and kill him in an instant.”
Zhuge Yun shouted out loudly. Over 50 Mid Divine Core warriors working together to attack a dog and a young Heavenly Core warrior, this was something unbelievable. To these Mid Divine Core warriors, this was an act that really put them to shame. But for now, they couldn’t be bothered about it.
Just as Zhuge Yun finished his words, a few hundred strong energies shot up from the crowd. Dozens of men sprint forwards and started unleas.h.i.+ng attacks towards Tian Yishan and the other men.
“d.a.m.n it, what should we do now?”
w.a.n.g Heng cursed.
“Brothers, let’s fight, killing one man is breaking even; killing two men is considered a win for us! Since these men want to kill us, we’ll make them pay a heavy price!”
Tian Yishan and the others’ valiant spirits had been ignited. These men had seen too much slaughter, and because of the situation where they knew they were going to die, they became merciless.
But a battle like this was a one-sided fight. With just one round of attack, at least half of the men in Tian Yishan’s group would be killed, and the rest would suffer from serious injuries.
Right at this moment, a cold snort sounded out from somewhere not far away in the stronghold. After that, a ground shaking explosive sound was heard. In an instant, everybody could see a huge blood red dragon claw descending from the skies, descending towards a dozen of men who were das.h.i.+ng forwards.
The ground was shaking together with the horrible screams of the men. At least eight men were unable to escape, and were slapped onto the ground by the dragon claw, squeezed into meat paste with their blood splashed all over the place.
Those lucky men who escaped from the attacking were also throwing up blood. The dragon claw attack was simply invincible, there was no way for them to defend themselves with their strength.
“So powerful, it’s chief Jiang.”
“Finally, chief Jiang has finally finished cultivating! Haha, he killed eight Early Divine Core warriors with a single strike, and wounded dozens of men! Combat strength like that is really frightening!”
w.a.n.g Heng and the other men who had lost their hope immediately had a look of surprise on their faces.
“Did all you come here to get yourselves killed?”
Jiang Chen’s voice was so cold that it could send s.h.i.+vers down anyone’s spine. He stood in the middle of the air, his white clothes fluttering in the wind, and his body covered by bright golden lights.
“Heavens, chief Jiang looks really young!”
“His presence alone is so overbearing! No wonder why Yang Shuo was defeated by him, the strike just now instantly killed a few Early Divine Core warriors! Frightening!”
“I’ve finally met chief Jiang personally, he is much younger than I had imagined! A man like him is definitely a peerless genius, even those incredible geniuses from the Martial Saint Dynasty’s Martial Palace can’t compare with chief Jiang’s potential!”
