Chapter 238 – The Qi Province’s Upheaval Begins
Hearing what Wu Jiu said, Jiang Chen’s eyes immediately lit up.
“Brother Jiu, where can I find that Earth Devil?”
Jiang Chen hurriedly asked.
“According to what I know, there is an Earth Devil Mountain in the center of Inferno h.e.l.l, and that’s where the Earth Devil resides. I heard about the Earth Devil many years ago, and I was planning on fighting it and turning it into my mount, but I never thought that before I could reach the Earth Devil Mountain, I would be trapped in the Poisonous Miasma s.p.a.ce for ten years.”
Wu Jiu said with a bitter and self-mocking expression.
“Earth Devil Mountain?”
Jiang Chen had mixed emotions in his heart. It was actually located in the deepest area of Inferno h.e.l.l, there was no doubts it would be a terrifying place.
“But, that Earth Devil was an Early Combat Soul monster ten years ago. Now, ten years have pa.s.sed, and I’m sure it has definitely become stronger, perhaps it hasn’t reached the Mid Combat Soul realm yet, but it must have at least reached the peak Early Combat Soul realm. If I was at my peak, I would have no problem defeating this Earth Devil, but now, there are only ten days until the doorway to the outside world opens up, and it seems unrealistic for brother Jiang to kill this Earth Devil.”
Wu Jiu said. With their current strength, the gap between them and the Earth Devil was not small, and it was tougher to kill it and take its devil soul than reaching the top of the heavens.
“I have to get the Earth Devil’s devil soul no matter what, this is the most important reason for why I came to Inferno h.e.l.l. Does brother Jiu know how we can get to the Earth Devil Mountain?”
Jiang Chen looked at Wu Jiu and asked.
“The Earth Devil is a supreme specie amongst all devil species, it will certainly stay in the place where the most devilish energy can be found. If my guess is correct, it should be connected to the devil cave. If we travel across the devil cave, we will be able to reach the Earth Devil Mountain. However, once we enter the devil cave, those Evil Devils will definitely storm at us. As long as we can kill all the Combat Soul Evil Devils in the devil cave, I believe that the Earth Devil will come to us.”
Wu Jiu said.
“Kill all Combat Soul Evil Devils…”
Jiang Chen furrowed his brows. This was something impossible for him. Those Combat Soul existences had formed a Combat Soul in their bodies, which was equal to the Nascent Soul of a cultivator. As long as the Combat Soul wasn’t destroyed; one would have the opportunity to be reincarnated.
There was a huge gap between the Divine Core realm and the Combat Soul realm, the gap between the strengths was simply incomparable. Therefore, although Jiang Chen had broken through to the Divine Core realm, had 1,000 Dragon Marks, and could fight any Late Divine Core warrior, he was still not a match for a Combat Soul warrior. With his current cultivation, he would still have to run away when facing a Combat Soul Evil Devil in the devil cave.
“We only have a little time left, and it’s impossible for you to reach a level where you can kill that Earth Devil. As for me, I’ll need at least a few months in order to restore my cultivation to the Combat Soul realm. Judging from the current situation, if brother Jiang insists in killing that Earth Devil, I’m afraid there is only one way left, and it’s an uncertain method.”
Wu Jiu said.
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up, then he asked, “What method is that?”
“Does brother Jiang know why all those demons and devils doesn’t dare attack Inferno City?”
Wu Jiu asked.
“I guess there’s something in Inferno City that those demons and devils are afraid of. If not, the entire city would have long ago been conquered by them.”
Jiang Chen said. Big Yellow had sensed that there was a treasure hidden somewhere within Inferno City when they arrived at the place. A treasure that could be sensed by Big Yellow must be something extraordinary, and the reason why those monsters didn’t dare attack Inferno City must have something to do with that treasure.
“You’re right, there is indeed a treasure that exists within Inferno City, and it is because of that treasure’s protection that Inferno City has become the safest place for humans to rest in Inferno h.e.l.l. No demons or devils can even come to disturb.”
Wu Jiu said. The first thing he did when he arrived in Inferno h.e.l.l many years ago was to find out about the secret of Inferno City.
“Does brother Jiu know what kind of treasure it is?”
Jiang Chen asked.
“I have no idea, I have never seen it before. I did try to search for it, but it was to no avail. But, I’m sure the treasure exists, and my guess is that it requires a great fate to be able to locate and obtain this treasure. My fate isn’t great enough, and that’s why I couldn’t find it. But, if brother Jiang is fortunate enough, you can try to enter the center of Inferno City and give it a try, you might be able to find the treasure. With its restraining ability towards all demons and devils, we’ll have a chance to kill the Combat Soul Evil Devils, and even the Earth Devil.”
Wu Jiu said.
When mentioning treasure, Big Yellow was currently feasting next to them became high spirited.
“As long as we can enter the center of Inferno City, this master dog will be able to find that treasure.”
Big Yellow said.
“He’s right. In this world, there are no treasures Big Yellow can’t find. If this is the case, let’s leave this place and proceed to Inferno City.”
Jiang Chen said in a hurry. Their time was tight right now, and he didn’t want to delay any longer.
Wu Jiu nodded his head, then the trio started flying towards Inferno City.
Qi Province, Burning Sky Pavilion. The entire sky was clear, and a rich energy filled the atmosphere.
All of a sudden, a groundbreaking explosion sound could be heard from the palace located in the deepest area of the Burning Sky Pavilion. A golden light beam shot up into the sky with amazing force, and a strong king’s aura could be sensed from the light beam, causing people to feel it came from a supreme person. They couldn’t help but admire and wors.h.i.+p it in their minds.
“What an amazing aura, it belongs to senior disciple Nanbei, he has broken through again.”
“This is terrifying, senior disciple Nanbei is indeed a peerless genius that can’t be found even in a thousand years! His progress is simply astonis.h.i.+ng! Besides, his Mid Divine Core aura is much stronger than the chief’s aura.”
“I heard that senior disciple Nanbei was born from an Immortal Rock, I wonder if that’s true.”
“Someone said that in the Divine Continent far away from here, there was an extraordinary Saint, and with his sword, he fought the heavens and cut open the gate to the Realm of Immortal a hundred years ago. At that point of time, an immortal light fell down from the Realm of Immortals and turned into an Immortal Rock, which then flew to an unknown location. Perhaps senior disciple Nanbei was born from that Immortal Rock? If that’s true, that means senior disciple Nanbei has an immortal body, and he isn’t a mortal. This is terrifying!”
Many people were discussing with soft voices. In the Eastern Continent, the story about the greatest Saint cutting open the gate leading to the Realm of Immortals a hundred years ago was an urban legend, as no one could verify the authenticity of the legend. Rumors say that when the greatest Saint cut open the gate leading to the Realm of Immortals, and immortal light fell out from the Realm of Immortals and turned into an Immortal Rock, and after dozens of years of breeding, it gave birth to an immortal being. But, this was only an urban legend, and no one really knew the origin of Nanbei Chao.
“I heard that after senior disciple Nanbei finishes his secluded cultivation, he is going to attack the other three big sects and rule the entire Qi Province.”
“Hahaha, the time for the Burning Sky Pavilion to rule the entire Qi Province is finally here, the structure of the Qi Province is going to completely change! That guy from the Black Sect, Jiang Chen, has challenged senior disciple’s dignity, he has no idea what the consequences will be!”
“That’s right, who gave that brat the audacity to challenge senior disciple Nanbei to a fight in one year? Sooner or later, senior disciple Nanbei will crush him under his foot, just like an ant!”
In the Burning Sky Pavilion, Nanbei Chao had more supporters, and received more respect than the chief. Not only the ordinary disciples; even all the Sect Elders who sat in high positions showed Nanbei Chao respect.
Within the palace, Nanbei Chao who was wearing a golden robe was filled with powerful energy. After breaking through to the Mid Divine Core realm, his energy had reached an incredible level, and even Zhao Chongyang who was standing next to him was shocked.
“What powerful energy! Nanbei, you have successfully broken through!”
Zhao Chongyang said.
“That’s right, chief, I have broken through to the Mid Divine Core realm. Now is the time to strike the other three big sects. Let’s begin with the Heavenly Sword Sect.”
Nanbei Chao said.
“Fine, I’ll gather all the men and initiate an attack at the Heavenly Sword Sect.”
Zhao Chongyang unleashed his aura, he showed the utmost support in the decision of attacking the other three big sects. He had put in a lot of effort to do so, because he knew Nanbei Chao really well, Nanbei Chao was going after the entire world, and the little Qi Province was just his stepping stone. Once the Burning Sky Pavilion rules the entire Qi Province, Nanbei Chao would leave the place and proceed to the Martial Palace, and at that point of time, the entire Qi Province would belong to Zhao Chongyang.
“You don’t have to, just send an order to the Heavenly Sword Sect, ask all the Divine Core realm warriors to come submit to me within three days, and the Heavenly Sword Sect will have to merge with the Burning Sky Pavilion, becoming our subordinates. If they don’t come here, once three days have pa.s.sed, I’ll personally attack and destroy the entire Heavenly Sword Sect.”
Nanbei Chao said, word by word.
“With Duan Jianhong’s att.i.tude, I’m sure he won’t easily surrender, and that means they will have three days to prepare.”
Zhao Chongyang said as he furrowed his brows.
“Just give them the time to prepare then. If that Duan Jianhong doesn’t want to surrender, I’ll kill him myself. I want to destroy all three big sects openly.”
Nanbei Chao was extremely prideful, his arrogance could even reach the heavens.
Roar… roar… roar…
In Inferno h.e.l.l, wild roars and energy ripples from combat could be found everywhere.
“Why has Inferno h.e.l.l become so chaotic?”
Jiang Chen furrowed his brows.
“Every time the doorway to the outside world is about to open, Inferno h.e.l.l will enter a chaotic state. But, the degree of chaos this time seems to be more serious in history, as if something big has happened.”
Wu Jiu said.
All of a sudden, a gigantic Nine Life Crystal Beast appeared in front of the trio. This crystal beast was unleash pure and powerful energy from its body as it roared at the trio.
“A Late Divine Core crystal beast.”
Wu Jiu had a slight change in expression. If he was still at his peak, he could just kill this Nine Life Crystal Beast with a single breath, but now, he couldn’t even defeat it.
“Perfect, time to test my combat strength.”
Jiang Chen took a step forwards, then he suddenly unleashed the True Dragon Palm, which struck toward the crystal beast.
The crystal beast let out a furious roar. With its gigantic hand s.h.i.+ning like pure crystal, it forcefully slapped at the True Dragon Palm.
The earth quaked, and the mountains shook. The gigantic Nine Life Crystal Beast was sent flying away by the ma.s.sive True Dragon Palm’s force, and it broke quite a number of huge trees along its way before it was finally thrown onto the ground.
Wu Jiu praised. The way he looked at Jiang Chen had changed. With just his Early Divine Core cultivation base, Jiang Chen had actually just forced away a Late Divine Core crystal beast with just a single strike. Combat strength like this was simply astonis.h.i.+ng.
Being pushed away with just a single strike, the Nine Life Crystal Beast had become completely enraged. Once again, it crazily dashed toward Jiang Chen.
“A Late Divine Core crystal beast’s crystal core, I can’t let it go to waste.”
Jiang Chen’s lip curved upwards, a grin filled his face.
