Chapter 344 – Unstoppable
When the sword appeared, the entire area was filled with sword energy!
With a wave of his hand, Jiang Chen struck with a usual sword skill. However, it was an extremely fast strike, as if it was the fastest sword skill underneath the Heavens! It was so fast it left behind an illusionary trail!
The Heavenly Saint Sword collided with Shangguan Yihong’s giant blade. In an instant, the giant blade was sliced into two halves.
When the Heavenly Saint Sword struck; what could stand in its way without breaking?
The entire crowd shook just from this single strike! Everyone stared at the sword in Jiang Chen’s hand as if they were looking at a ghost, eyes wide open and shocked.
Shangguan Yihong immediately let out a cry of disbelief. A storm was raging within his heart, this was too frightening! The giant blade in his hand was a real Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon, and although it wasn’t the best amongst all the other Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapons, it was still a Perfect-Ranked Weapon!
What was a Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon? It was a weapon that only Combat Soul warriors could use! But now, the mighty Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon had been sliced in two by his opponent’s sword! What kind of sword was that? It was the nightmare of all Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapons!
“Oh Heavens, what is that sword Jiang Chen is using? It is incredible!”
“This is amazing, a Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon was just destroyed in an instant! Don’t tell me he’s using a King Weapon? Impossible, there are only a handful of Combat King warriors in the entire Eastern Continent, and they are all from the Martial Saint Dynasty! I’m sure Jiang Chen doesn’t have a King Weapon! But, the sword he uses is really frightening, if I wasn’t here to see it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t believe it at all!”
“It’s a divine weapon! Being able to destroy a Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon with just a single strike, that sword is incredible!”
Many people were shocked by what they had just witnessed. The scene caused a turmoil within the crowd. No one would be able to believe this if they weren’t here to see it themselves.
“Shangguan Yihong, face your death!”
Jiang Chen shouted out loudly. With a wave of his arm, he slashed at Shangguan Yihong one more time. It was the same lightning like speed, and the sword reached Shangguan Yihong in the blink of an eye, pointed toward the center of his brows.
Shangguan Yihong was shocked by this attack. He never expected Jiang Chen to possess such formidable combat strength. The energy leaking from Jiang Chen’s body truly caused his heart to tremble, and the approaching sword also brought him a tremendous sense of danger. Without hesitating, he quickly unleashed a Yuan energy barrier around his body, while holding the remaining now short blade in his hand in front of his body.
Without any resistance, the broken blade was penetrated by the sword!
The sword didn’t slow down. After piercing through Shangguan Yihong’s Yuan energy barrier, it instantly pierced through the center of his brows, poked through his brain, and came out from the back of his head.
Shangguan Yihong opened his mouth as if he was trying to say something, but he was no longer able to speak any words. His life force was diminis.h.i.+ng at a fast rate, and the color in his eyes was fading away. At the last moment of his life, fear and unwillingness could be seen in his eyes, but the majority of his expression was that of disbelief. Never in his wildest dreams did he think he would ever be killed by a Divine Core warrior, without even being able to fight back! He was killed in one move!
Jiang Chen pulled the Heavenly Saint Sword out, then he casually shook it, causing the blood to escape the blade. Shangguan Yihong’s body fell back and hit the ground. Blood gushed out from the center of his brows, staining the ground underneath him.
Silence! Dead silence! Although the place was filled with people, none of them were able to utter a single word at this moment. Everyone’s eyes were wide open, staring at Shangguan Yihong. Shock and fear filled their eyes.
Even Han Yan and Nangong Wentian’s mouths were wide open in shock. They expected Jiang Chen to be really strong, but not this strong! His opponent was Shangguan Yihong, a rare genius from the Shangguan Clan, and Jiang Chen had just effortlessly killed him with such great speed! This was truly shocking.
Furthermore, the Heavenly Saint Sword was even more incredible! A Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon was like tofu in front of it! Perhaps only the best Perfect-Ranked Combat Weapon could resist a blow from the Heavenly Saint Sword, but only resist it. The Heavenly Saint Sword’s mighty power could only be matched by King Weapons.
Wu Lang’s mouth was slightly open. He finally realized why Jiang Chen didn’t want his help just now, it was all because Jiang Chen possessed such formidable combat strength. When the Ninth Emperor told him that Jiang Chen was the number one genius he had ever met, Wu Lang was not at all convinced, but the scene in front of him proved the Ninth Emperor’s words. At least, when Wu Lang was at the same level as Jiang Chen, they gap between their combat strengths was like the gap between Heaven and Earth.
Shangguan Yilong yelled out. Both his eyes had turned red, and he stared angrily at Jiang Chen. He was gripping the longsword in his hand so tightly that it started produced cracking sounds. But, he didn’t have the courage to attack. On the other side, the three men from the Myriad Sword Sect, and that genius from the Qingyi Sect, they all wore the same expression. They were all shouting, wanting to kill Jiang Chen, but it seemed like they had completely lost all their courage.
“Who is next?”
Jiang Chen raised the sword in his hand and pointed it toward the few men standing opposite of him.
“Hmph! Jiang Chen, never thought your cultivation would progress so much. Looks like you really found the Magma’s Heart.”
Wu Cong coldly harrumphed. Right at this moment, only he alone had the possibility of defeating Jiang Chen.
“Good, you aren’t stupid after all.”
Jiang Chen casually shrugged his shoulders, not revealing too many details.
“I hate to admit this, but you’re the most incredible man I’ve ever seen. However, no matter how strong you are, you’re still just a Divine Core warrior right now. Although you just killed Shangguan Yihong, when facing me, you can only expect death to come!”
Wu Cong said with a loud voice.
“Why don’t you give it a try? I promise you, if you really attack me, I’ll kill you regardless of your status.”
Jiang Chen said with an indifferent expression. He didn’t want to become the Martial Saint Dynasty’s enemy. Just having the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect as enemies alone had already given him a headache. If the mighty Martial Saint Dynasty was added to his list of enemies, his life would for sure become much tougher.
But, since this Wu Cong continuously pushed him, and didn’t know when to back off, Jiang Chen wouldn’t show any mercy when attacking.
“Yang Yun, Ling Du, leave this Jiang Chen to me, you two go kill those three b.a.s.t.a.r.ds!”
Wu Cong’s expression became cold as he spoke to Yang Yun and the others.
The men unleashed their energies, then their eyes locked onto Han Yan, Nangong Wentian, and Big Yellow. They were no match for Jiang Chen, but when it came to these three guys, dealing with them was a piece of cake.
Right after these men replied to Wu Cong, Jiang Chen once again struck in a ghostly manner. He was incredibly fast, and he gave the opponent no time to react. Or perhaps, the opponent didn’t expect Jiang Chen to suddenly launch an attack at this moment.
The Heavenly Saint Sword struck once again. It impaled Yang Yun’s body with a ‘puchi’ sound. An Early Combat Soul genius was so vulnerable in front of Jiang Chen.
“Those who wants to hurt my brothers; die!”
Jiang Chen said, his voice extremely cruel. In his past life, he was a loner. He spent his entire life as a martial art maniac, seeking nothing but strength. But now that he was given another chance, a new life, he wanted to live a different life. He really cherished every single person around him; the father son relations.h.i.+p with Jiang Zhenhai, the romantic relations.h.i.+p with Yan Chenyu, and the brotherly relations.h.i.+p with Han Yan, Big Yellow, and Nangong Wentian.
All of them were the most important people in Jiang Chen’s life. Anyone who tried to hurt them or came at them with the intention to kill; Jiang Chen would never let them go.
Therefore, Yang Yun was the first who died because of this.
Feeling his life force constantly diminis.h.i.+ng, Yang Yun finally realized how horrifying it was to offend such an abnormal monster. His eyes was filled with fear. It wasn’t until one faced true death that one understood how frightening death truly was.
“b.a.s.t.a.r.d, how dare you kill someone in front of me?!”
Wu Cong furiously growled. Jiang Chen killed Yang Yun immediately after he had given the order, this was like ripping Wu Cong’s face off and was.h.i.+ng it down the drain. He was a n.o.ble prince, a mighty Mid Combat Soul warrior, but he couldn’t even protect his own subordinate.
Wu Cong instantly struck out with his palm, unleas.h.i.+ng a bright palm resembling a huge mountain towards Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed. He swung the Heavenly Saint Sword upwards, slicing the giant palm in two pieces, as if he was slicing a piece of tofu.
Extremely terrifying, extremely sharp! No matter how powerful the attack was, nothing could withstand Jiang Chen’s sword!
“Chaotic Metal Palm!”
Wu Cong’s dark hair violently danced within the air, and he once again furiously cried out. He flew above Jiang Chen and unleashed another palm toward Jiang Chen, a huge golden palm that carried a tremendous force. It crashed down toward Jiang Chen from the sky above.
“Let me see how strong you are. True Dragon Palm!”
Wu Cong’s powerful attack ignited Jiang Chen’s fighting will. He simply stored the Heavenly Saint Sword away, and unleashed the True Dragon Palm to counter Wu Cong’s Chaotic Metal Palm.
Two combat skills carrying tremendous force collided, causing a ma.s.sive shockwave to spread across the entire desert and shake everything. The void shook, and the earth was torn open, causing thick smoke to erupt from the cracking.
Everyone stared at the scene, terrified. None could remain calm any longer, Jiang Chen’s actions caused every single person’s jaw to drop to the ground. A Peak Divine Core warriors could actually fight a Mid Combat Soul genius; this was unbelievable!
Wu Cong was extremely shocked as well. He never thought Jiang Chen’s cultivation would progress so much, it seemed like the Magma’s Heart had brought him a huge amount of benefits. This caused Wu Cong to be really jealous of Jiang Chen. Without hesitating, he immediately unleashed another attack.
Invisible waves carrying formidable power swept toward Jiang Chen.
“Nine Murdering Flood Dragons!”
Jiang Chen’s energy was incredibly great, and his fighting spirit was unbeatable. He was unstoppable! The Flood Dragon’s bloodline instantly started circulating, and this time, he unleashed five Flood Dragon, shattering Wu Cong’s attack with this formidable counter attack.
On the other side, Ling Du from the Myriad Sword Sect exchanged a glance with Shangguan Yilong, he then brought Xu Shuang and the Qingyi Sect genius with him, das.h.i.+ng toward Han Yan and the other two while unleas.h.i.+ng attacks.
“You’re courting death!”
A cruel killing intent emerged into Jiang Chen’s eyes. He had never taken his eyes off Ling Du and the others. When he saw they were going to attack the trio, Jiang Chen instantly became furious.
Jiang Chen moved his body and started sprinting toward the trio with lightning like speed. However, Wu Cong jumped in his way and stopped him from going further.
“Your opponent is me! Those three are dead meat; show me, how are you going to save them?”
Wu Cong said with a sneer on his face.
“Is that so?”
Jiang Chen replied with a sneer as well. He shook his body, producing another eight identical Jiang Chens right in front of Wu Cong.
Wu Cong was momentarily distracted by the nine Jiang Chens in front of him, he never expected this from Jiang Chen, and he couldn’t immediately identify which Jiang Chen was the real one.
When he finally realized which Jiang Chen was the real one, Jiang Chen had already arrived on the other side of the battlefield.
