Chapter 228 – Devil’s Cave
Obviously, w.a.n.g Heng had accidentally stepped into a natural formation and disappeared.
“Chief Jiang, what should we do now? Is w.a.n.g Heng in any danger?”
Yang Meng worriedly asked.
“Under normal circ.u.mstances, the person who stepped into a formation would be trapped, and he would definitely not disappear. Therefore, the invisible formation here should be similar to an illusion realm. I suppose the real scene behind these two trees are as simple as what we are looking at right now, perhaps there is something unusual here, but it’s covered by this formation, like a camouflage that’s trying to distract us. Therefore, I a.s.sume that w.a.n.g Heng disappeared because he entered the scene behind this formation. w.a.n.g Heng’s life isn’t at risk, currently.”
Said Jiang Chen said.
“That’s right, this formation carries an illusionary characteristic, but it won’t hurt anyone. Therefore, w.a.n.g Heng won’t get killed by this formation. But, we can’t eliminate the possibility that there is danger on the other side of the formation, as none of us know what’s on the other side.”
Big Yellow commented with what he knew as well.
Tian Yishan and Guan Yiyun looked at each other, both could see shock in each other’s eye. What shocked them wasn’t the formation, but Jiang Chen’s understand towards formation. He explained it all like he was a grandmaster when it came to formations.
A young man in his teens, it was hard to imagine why he seemed to know everything. He had unique innate abilities and formidable combat strength, and he was also able to concoct all sorts of pills with 100% effectiveness with ease. And now, he showed them his vast knowledge in formations and defense mechanism. They wouldn’t believe that an abnormal monster like this actually existed if they didn’t personally know him.
“What should we do now?”
Guan Yiyun asked.
“I also want to know what’s behind this formation, I have decided to enter the formation and check it out for myself, while saving w.a.n.g Heng at the same time. All of you just wait here for me, there is no need to take the risk together.”
When Jiang Chen pa.s.sed the two trees on the road side just now, even with his extraordinary senses, he couldn’t sense that there was a formation there. This proved that this formation was amazing. He had now arrived at the depths of Inferno h.e.l.l, and his goal was to search for the Earth Devil. But if he kept walking around like this, he would most likely not be able to find anything. Therefore, he wanted to try his luck by entering the formation.
“I’ll go with you.”
Guan Yiyun said.
“Let’s go in together, we can help of help if anything happens in there. Also, I too want to check out what’s happening behind the formation.”
Tian Yishan said. No one had any objections to his decision, it was safest for them to follow Jiang Chen and Big Yellow. If Jiang Chen and the rest all went into the formation, the danger would be just the same as if they had decided to stay here.
“If that’s the case, let’s enter the formation together. Everyone, be extra cautious.”
Jiang Chen reminded.
After saying that, Jiang Chen became the first person two walk towards the center of the two trees. Big Yellow followed closely behind, and he was followed by Guan Yiyun, Tian Yishan and the rest of the men.
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. He kept staring at the spot behind the two trees. He was cultivating the Great Soul Derivation skill, and that gave him incredibly sensitive senses. He had finally sensed the aura of the invisible natural formation.
Jiang Chen stepped between the two trees, and when his body touched the invisible formation, he immediately felt a powerful suction force invisibly working on him. Jiang Chen’s didn’t resist this force, and in an instant, he too disappeared, just like w.a.n.g Heng.
Big Yellow was even wilder, he just bashed into the center of both trees; and then he disappeared.
Behind them, Tian Yishan, Guan Yiyun and the rest of the men stared at each other. Without hesitating, the immediately followed the footsteps of Jiang Chen and Big Yellow, disappearing into the other side of the formation.
Indeed, on the other side of the formation, there was a completely different scene. Jiang Chen and the group were standing chill, and when sensing the chilling breeze blowing from all directions, their expressions became unnatural.
Underneath their feet there was a small hill. There was a dusky airflow all over the place, and chilling breeze kept blowing in their faces. When these men turned around, they couldn’t find the same two trees. There was nothing, and it was as if they just entered another dimension.
But they could actually feel that the atmosphere in this place was similar to Inferno h.e.l.l. Therefore, this place should still be within Inferno h.e.l.l, but the formation had isolated the area.
Not far from them, a man dressed in black clothes was looking around with a panicked expression. When he saw Jiang Chen, a joyful expression emerged on his face.
“Chief Jiang, you guys came here too?”
The man in black clothes was none other than w.a.n.g Heng who had accidentally stepped into the formation.
“w.a.n.g Heng, why are you careless that you stepped into the invisible natural formation?”
Yang Meng blamed w.a.n.g Heng. Actually, his expression became much more relaxed when he found out w.a.n.g Heng was alright.
“It was an accident. What is this place, actually? A boundless stretch of desolated mountains, and the ominous feeling I get from this place is much heavier than outside.”
w.a.n.g Heng said.
“The devil auras here are really strong.”
Tian Yishan said with a frown on his face.
“You’re right, intense devil auras fill every single inch of this place. I think there are a lot of Evil Devils in this place.
Guan Yiyun said.
“Not only that, aside from the intense devilish energy here, demonic energy is extremely spa.r.s.e here. Looks like we have entered a devil cave. Be cautious, everyone, this place might be the colony of the Evil Devils.”
Jiang Chen said.
“What? A colony for Evil Devils? That means we just jumped into a huge crowd of devils? How are we going to leave this place?”
w.a.n.g Heng exclaimed. All of these men knew how powerful Evil Devils were, and in Inferno h.e.l.l, they were the second most powerful creatures, after the Nine Life Crystal Beast. With just the few of them here, it wasn’t difficult to imagine how dangerous it was for them to walk into a devil cave that was filled with Evil Devils.
“This place is a part of Inferno h.e.l.l, not a separate dimension. Because of the formation, I’m afraid we’re very far away from the place we were just now, and all we can do now is keep walking forwards. As long as we can leave this devil cave, we’ll be able to return to where we came from.”
Jiang Chen said.
Everyone were inwardly sighing. They couldn’t help but take a deep breath. It looked like it was going to be a tough path in front of them.
Angry roars began sounding out throughout the place. It was the furious roars of the Evil Devils. Figures of powerful Evil Devils came into sight far in front of them. Obviously, these Evil Devils were coming towards them.
Looking at this, the group felt their nerves tensing up. No one had any idea how many Evil Devils were out there.
Jiang Chen on the other side, he had a relaxed expression. These Evil Devils were terrifying and frightening for other people, but for Jiang Chen, they were merely tonics in his eyes. The True Dragon Flames was a natural predator for these Evil Devils, and as long as he didn’t b.u.mp into some extra powerful Evil Devils, he would be able to kill them all with his flames.
Soon, the Evil Devils began spring towards them. There were a total of five Evil Devils. For Jiang Chen and his group, these five Evil Devils were nothing, because there was only one Evil Devil in the Divine Core realm, and the rest were all Heavenly Core monsters. Their combined strength meant nothing in front of these men.
“Kill them, quickly!”
Jiang Chen let out a cold snort. Big Yellow became the first one to dash forwards, and in an instant, he killed the Early Divine Core Evil Devil with his head. At the same time, Tian Yishan and Guan Yiyun attacked at the same time, killing the other four Heavenly Core Evil Devils in the blink of an eye.
Even though they had finished the fight in a split second, the energy ripples and auras of human warriors still alerted the Evil Devils in the inner area of this place. Angry roars upon roars could be heard from all directions, and figures of powerful Evil Devils began appearing around the place. There were at least a couple dozens of them. At the moment, the entire place was filled with ma.s.sive amounts of devilish auras, enough to send s.h.i.+vers down anyone’s spine.
“d.a.m.n it, how come there are so many Evil Devils here?”
Yang Meng couldn’t help but start cursing.
Jiang Chen didn’t show any emotion on his face, but his eyes were actually lighting up. For him, these Evil Devils were merely a pile of tonics, a great wealth. And the more there were, the better. Since he had come to Inferno h.e.l.l, he couldn’t leave the place with both hands empty; he had to obtain sufficient benefits, and save a huge amount of resources for his future breakthroughs. He had to kill these Evil Devils and take their devil souls to prepare for his future cultivation.
This time, Jiang Chen was the one who initiated the attack. He turned into a beam of light and rammed into the group of Evil Devils. Big Yellow leapt in the crowd as well. When it came to fighting, he was happier than anyone else.
Guan Yiyun let out a cold snort. All men in the group jumped into the fight at the same time. At the moment, intense killing intents filled the atmosphere, and the air itself was vibrating due to their attacks.
Jiang Chen waved his hand and unleashed a flame sea. The True Dragon Flame, which carried the purest yang energy, instantly covered a few Evil Devils.
The Evil Devils let out shrill cries. They had an incredible fear towards the flames, as if they had just seen their natural predator. The Heavenly Core Evil Devils couldn’t resist it at all, and were killed on the spot.
Even those Early Divine Core Evil Devils couldn’t resist the scorching heat from the True Dragon Flames. Although they wouldn’t be killed instantly, they would still roll and struggle within the flame sea, furiously roaring.
Jiang Chen let out a cold snort once again. Underneath his control, the True Dragon Flames transformed into countless fire arrows. These arrows were injected with yuan energy, and they swept across the Evil Devils.
In just a short moment, many Evil Devils had their bodies impaled by these fire arrows, and were killed by the True Dragon Flames. Numerous black colored devil souls were purified by the flames and fell into Jiang Chen’s storage ring.
“Haha, all of you, die!”
Jiang Chen was laughing out loudly. He expanded the coverage of the flame sea, covering more than half of the Evil Devils within. The strongest Evil Devils in this new batch were only Early Divine Core monsters, and they simply had no ability to resist Jiang Chen’s attack.
The roars seemed to sound out endlessly. Many Evil Devils were burnt into ashes by the scorching True Dragon Flame, and none of the Evil Devils could unleash their evil energy underneath the True Dragon Flame’s pressure. This flame was truly their bane.
In just the blink of an eye, more than half of the Evil Devils had died. It all happened before Tian Yishan and the other men could even strike. They were stunned on the spot as they stared at Jiang Chen who was bravely slaughtering.
“Heavens, what kind of flame is that? It’s giving frightening feeling.”
“I can sense an aura of a king from the flame itself, it’s a flame with the purest yang energy, which is also the perfect rival for these Evil Devils. Look at those Evil Devils, they are scared off Jiang Chen’s flames, it’s a natural rival for them.”
“Chief Jiang is definitely the bravest man I have ever met, no one can compare with him! No wonder he didn’t show any worry on his face, even after finding out we are in the devil’s cave, it’s because he has the ultimate weapon that can defeat these Evil Devils!”
Everyone were shocked by what they witnessed. It seemed like there was no need for them to attack, just Jiang Chen alone would be able to defeat thousands upon thousands of these creatures. This wasn’t a battle, it was one-sided slaughter where no suspense existed.
