Chapter 279 – Not a Good Man
“What a powerful combat skill! Why do I feel like I’ve seen it before?”
Han Yan said, sighing.
“It’s the Nine Murdering Flood Dragons. I found the skill in Mao Fang’s storage ring.”
A voice sounded out from behind. Han Yan and Big Yellow turned around. They saw Jiang Chen walking out from the cave with both hands placed behind his back.
When Han Yan and Big Yellow sensed the formidable aura leaking from Jiang Chen’s body, they couldn’t help but feel shocked.
“Little Chen, you’re really giving me a huge blow to my face. In just two hours of secluded cultivation, you’ve broken through to the Mid Divine Core realm… you’re too abnormal!”
Han Yan said, a slight hint of depression could be found in his tone. He possessed the Ancient Divine Devil’s bloodline, and that made him a mighty genius. With his talent, he wouldn’t be weaker than anyone in the Martial Palace and Martial Saint Dynasty. But when he was compared to Jiang Chen, he felt really embarra.s.sed.
“The Flood Dragon’s blood essence is really useful for me, it has given me huge benefits, and I broke through to the Mid Divine Core realm only because of the blood essence. With my current combat strength, ordinary Combat Soul warriors wouldn’t be able to easily kill me.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes shone brightly, showing that he had extreme confidence. Although he was not a match for Combat Soul warriors, it was also impossible for ordinary Early Combat Soul warriors to kill him with ease.
“I didn’t expect Mao Fang to have a combat skill that even you would be interested in. Judging from the strength of the Flood Dragons you unleashed just now, I can say its power is really incredible.”
Han Yan said.
“That Mao Fan was a genius with quite good luck. He must have found this High-Ranked Heavenly Combat Skill somewhere. A skill at this level is extremely rare. Even in the entire Eastern Continent, I’m afraid only the Martial Saint Dynasty might have a skill of this level. But too bad, Mao Fang’s cultivation base limited the power of this skill, that’s why he was so obsessed with that Flood Dragon. Once he got its blood essence and demon soul, then absorbed it, he would be able to unleash the full strength of the Nine Murdering Flood Dragons skill, and even break through to the Combat Soul realm.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Kaka, too bad, that guy’s luck reached its limit, causing him to b.u.mp into you. All he did was pave a way for you.”
Big Yellow said, with a laugh. “Buddy, since you’ve broken through to the Mid Divine Core realm, combined with the formidable Nine Murdering Flood Dragons and all those terrifying skills you have, no warriors in the Divine Core realm will be a match for you at all, and I’m sure you’ll be able to kill those Divine Core geniuses in the Martial Palace with just a single strike. It would also be incredibly difficult for an ordinary Combat Soul warrior to kill you.”
“That’s right. My overall combat strength is much higher than before. We won’t have to worry about too much trouble when we reach the Blissful Island, and I have much more confidence about this trip now.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile on his face. For this trip to the Blissful Island, he would definitely meet many strong people, and because of his sensitive ident.i.ty, he couldn’t afford to be careless. The rogue cultivators and mighty sea creatures were all formidable existences.
For those who possessed great fates, no matter where that person went, luck would strike. Just like this time, they actually b.u.mped into the Flood Dragon by coincidence. If Jiang Chen wasn’t traveling to partic.i.p.ate in the Blissful Island’s trade fair, he wouldn’t come to the Qing Province. And if not for the Qingyi disciples provoking him, he wouldn’t have found out about the giant serpent that was about to evolve, and he wouldn’t have been able to receive such huge benefits.
Every time the Dragon Transformation skill evolved also meant a huge stroke of luck for Jiang Chen. Today’s stroke of luck had given Jiang Chen boundless benefits.
As for Mao Fang of the Qingyi Sect, he had reached the Late Divine Core realm at such a young age, and he also accidentally found a High-Ranked Heavenly Combat Skill. He could be considered a person with a great amount of luck. However, when a man with great luck met a man with even greater luck, that person’s luck would be suppressed, and it would become bad luck. It happened to Mao Fang, and it also happened to Nanbei Chao. They were all favored children of the heavens, existences that can defy all land under the heavens. But when they met Jiang Chen, everything changed.
The trio continued flying with great speed, rus.h.i.+ng toward the ocean. They b.u.mped into a lot of people along their way, but because Big Yellow was successfully disguised, and the fact that few people knew what Jiang Chen looked like, as well as the fact that Jiang Chen and Han Yan maintained low profiles, they didn’t run into any trouble along their journey.
Ten days later. The trio had completely left the Easter Continent, and they had arrived at the border of the ocean. In front of them was a vast ocean, and they could only see water that stretched to the ends of the earth.
“I wonder how big this ocean is. Perhaps it’s even bigger than the entire Eastern Continent!”
Han Yan said, impressed.
“The Saint Origin realm is extremely vast. There are tens of thousands territories here, and its size is unmeasurable. Besides the Eastern, Western, Southern and Northern Continents, there are also a lot of vast oceans. This ocean is connected to the Eastern Continent, and naturally, it belongs to the Eastern Continent. But in actuality, all oceans have their own structure, they basically have nothing to do with the continents. We are just at the border of the ocean, there is still a great way to go until we reach the Blissful Island.
Jiang Chen said.
“Little Chen, look at those people, I think they’re going to the Blissful Island as well. Since we don’t know the exact location of the island, why don’t we just follow them?”
Han Yan threw his glance at the people flying in front of them. Most of people were in groups of three to five men, some of them rode on flying demon beasts, and some wore the same clothes and had more people in their group compared to the other. Those people were clearly from some big powers. This could also be seen from the prideful expressions on their faces.
“The ocean is a place filled with dangers. Normally, this many people won’t appear at the same time, so these groups are certainly going to partic.i.p.ate in the Blissful Island’s trade fair. Let’s follow them, we might also be able to get some news from them.”
Jiang Chen added. With a sway of his body, he started flying. Since Big Yellow transformed into a smaller form, he just relaxingly squatted down on Jiang Chen’s shoulder. Han Yan flew next to Jiang Chen, feeling the raging ocean beneath and enjoying the distinctive mood.
The water suddenly splash underneath them. A huge shark leapt out from the water, and with its mouth wide open, it targeted Han Yan who flew above it.
Han Yan threw his glance at the shark. With just a cold hump, the shark instantly trembled with fear, then it dived back into the ocean and disappeared.
“Just a small sea demon, how dares it be so aggressive in front of me? What a reckless creature.”
A grin appeared on Han Yan’s face.
“Idiot, what are you looking at? Never seen such a handsome dog before?”
“d.a.m.n it, why are you so ugly? Compared to this handsome master dog, you’re just so far behind!”
“Hey! Pretty, do you have time for some chit chat?”
Along the way, Big Yellow teased every single person he met. With his mouth, he successfully attracted a lot of hateful glares. Even Jiang Chen couldn’t help but feel a slight desire to kill this dog, let alone other people.
Jiang Chen felt really helpless. All he could do was keep apologizing to those who Big Yellow offended. He was in a situation where there were enemies almost everywhere, and now, even before they arrived at the Blissful Island, Big Yellow had nearly offended every single person. If he truly ended up offending everyone, how were they going to get along on the island?
Han Yan lightly coughed. He purposely kept distance from Jiang Chen, pretending he didn’t know this dog.
“Little Chen, bringing this d.a.m.n dog is no different from purposely bringing troublemaker.”
Han Yan told Jiang Chen through his divine sense.
“Get lost! Han Yan, you’re the troublemaker! You’re going to need this master dog during the most critical moment!”
Big Yellow bared his teeth at Han Yan. Then, he turned around and teased a female cultivator, “Hey, pretty, do you want to be this master dog’s human pet? I’ll spoil you for sure!”
Finally, Jiang Chen couldn’t take it any longer. Before the female cultivator could become angry, he pulled Big Yellow from his shoulder. He put one of his hands on Big Yellow’s head, and the other hand on his mouth.
“d.a.m.n it! You d.a.m.n dog, can’t you be more obedient? Stop bringing daddy trouble!”
Jiang Chen felt like throwing up some blood. This dog was an extremely ridiculous being… no, the supreme ridiculous being. His ability to attract hate was unrivaled. No matter where he went, no matter what time it was, this dog could give anyone the impulse to tear it to pieces.
What made Jiang Chen feel even more depressed was that the female cultivator Big Yellow had teased just now was in here fifties. Her skin was rough, and she had a fat body. She reminded Jiang Chen about Murong Xiaorou; Big Yellow had actually teased someone like that. Really shameless.
“Where did this d.a.m.n dog come from?! Kill it!”
“Yea! Peel off its skin while it’s still alive, then throw it into the ocean and feed those sharks!”
“This dog is really cruel! I’m sure that young man isn’t a good man either. Birds of a feather flock together, like master like pet!”
“You’re right. Let’s keep a distance from him, I’m sure he’s a bad person!”
Everyone were pointing their fingers at Jiang Chen. Suddenly, Jiang Chen had a feeling that he was mistaken as the number one obscene man underneath the heavens. Without hesitation, he sped up and kept a distance from those people.
“d.a.m.n you, do you still want to venture together with us? d.a.m.n dog, can’t you just stop talking, even just a little?!”
Jiang Chen kept slapping Big Yellow on both sides of his face.
“d.a.m.n you! Buddy, how dare you slap this master dog’s handsome face?! I think you’re courting death!”
Big Yellow opened up his mouth and tried biting Jiang Chen’s palm.
Jiang Chen rolled his eyes. He was really speechless when it came to this dog. In the end, he could only beg Big Yellow to stop causing trouble.”
“Haha, Little Chen, none of them think you’re a good man.”
Han Yan couldn’t help himself from bursting out into laughter.
“Get lost, you’re the only good-for-nothing man here!”
Jiang Chen helplessly threw his gaze at Han Yan.
Jiang Chen and Han Yan flew with extreme speed. In just a few minutes, they had ditched all those people behind. Soon after, they saw another group of people in front of them. The group seemed to be discussing something. Jiang Chen and Han Yan sped up and got closer to them. This group of people were perhaps talking about the Blissful Island’s trade fair, and they really needed more information now.
“There is a Blissful Manor on the Blissful Island, and the master of the manor has occupied the entire island. He is rich with resources, and he’s enjoying a life with many wives.”
“That’s for sure. With just the trade fair alone, he’s able to earn an enormous amount of wealth and resources. I heard that Master Blissful is actually a demon lord from the ocean, and he has good relations.h.i.+ps with many demon lords of the ocean. He’s a really powerful existence.”
