Chapter 353 – Proceed Alone
At this moment, the news about the Gathering of Skynet had spread across like a tornado. Everyone were talking about it, but most of the people had the same opinion; Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi were wasting their time, Jiang Chen would never show up!
Also, no one knew where Jiang Chen was right now. The net they had case would probably yield no results.
“Gathering of Skynet? A net that covers both sky and ground? They just cast this net, and are waiting for Little Chen to jump in. It all depends on whether or not Little Chen has the courage to go.”
Nangong Wentian said.
“Little Chen, what do you think? Are we going to wreak havoc at this Gathering of Skynet?”
Han Yan looked at Jiang Chen and asked.
“The combination of the number one genius from both Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect, I think that only I, Jiang Chen can enjoy this kind of treatment. How could I let them down?”
Jiang Chen responded with a sneer. Initially, he just wanted to stay low and cross the Jian Province, proceed right to the Martial Palace. But, he never thought he’d b.u.mp into something like this Gathering of Skynet, this caused him to change his mind. In all his life, Jiang Chen had never feared a fight. If this Gathering of Skynet was held by some senior warriors from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect, perhaps Jiang Chen would just ignore them, but since it was organized by the number one geniuses from both superpowers, Jiang Chen decided to go and meet them. He wanted to let the entire Eastern Continent know who the real number one genius was, and who the ultimate warrior of the younger generation was.
“Wakaka, perfect! We’re going to have a nice show to watch!”
Big Yellow laughed out in excitement.
“Little Chen, I think we should be careful, as the number one geniuses from both superpowers, Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi are definitely not going to be weaker than Wu Cong. With the combined forces of these two men, as well as the Skynet Formation, I think it will be a very difficult battle. “
Nangong Wentian said as he furrowed his brows.
“Chen Gege, what Brother Nan said is correct, we need to be extra careful! Why don’t we just ignore them, and take this opportunity where most of the people are attracted to this Gathering of Skynet to cross the Jian Province, and proceed to the Martial Palace!”
Yan Chenyu said in a worried tone.
“I’ve made up my mind, I’ll go check out this Gathering of Skynet on Mount Tianyuan. I’m the main character of this gathering, if I don’t show myself, this grand event will be very boring. However, I’m going there alone, you guys proceed to the Martial Palace without me.”
Jiang Chen said.
“f.u.c.k! Buddy, you’re wrong, why don’t you want us to follow?”
Big Yellow immediately objected this idea.
“It will be really dangerous if we go there together. Don’t forget our goal, after I go to the Gathering of Skynet, you guys take the opportunity to leave the Jian Province. Go to the Martial Palace and look for Wu Lang, after you tell him your ident.i.ties, I believe Brother Jiu will meet you all personally.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Chen Gege, let me go with you! With my current strength, I’ll be a great help!”
Yan Chenyu was still worried.
“No, you proceed to the Martial Palace first. Once I settle everything on Mount Tianyuan, I’ll proceed straight to the Martial Palace. Little Yu, don’t worry about me, I can’t be defeated. Even if I can’t beat them, I still have the ability to escape.”
Jiang Chen said in a serious manner. This time, he was going to Mount Tianyuan alone to meet with the number one geniuses from the two superpowers.
“Alright. With our current strength, there is nothing we can help with. You just be careful.”
Han Yan patted Jiang Chen on the shoulder.
“Rest a.s.sured! You guys don’t need to worry about buddy, so many people want to kill him, but he is still alive and kicking!”
Big Yellow curled up his lips as he spoke. He wasn’t happy right now, as Jiang Chen had ditched him to go to Mount Tianyuan alone. All this time, he had never separated from Jiang Chen like this.
“Precisely. If you guys really want to worry, you should worry about those two geniuses.”
Nangong Wentian said with a laugh. He knew Jiang Chen quite well by now. If one were to compare pure combat strength, those two geniuses might be the same as Jiang Chen, but the Heavenly Saint Sword Jiang Chen had was a truly mighty weapon, it was not something those two geniuses could defend again. As for that Skynet Formation, perhaps Jiang Chen already had a solution.
After that, the group separated and proceeded to walk their respective paths. Han Yan and group turned around and left the city, proceeding toward the Martial Palace. As for Jiang Chen, he chose to stay back.
“That Jiang Chen’s face must be really big! He has actually caused both elite geniuses to team up! I think, this can really be considered some kind of great honor?”
“Honor my fart! This is courting death! If it was me, I would rather not want that kind of face!”
“But that Jiang Chen is a really incredible man! He has killed so many geniuses from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect. I believe that only a person like him possesses such amazing courage! Furthermore, I heard he also nearly killed the crown prince, son of Tenth Emperor! He is incredibly fierce!”
Discussions about Jiang Chen could be heard everywhere! The battle of the Island of Ice had caused him to become very famous. The orders to kill from both superpowers of the Jian Province, as well as the Gathering of Sky organized by Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi, it all catapulted Jiang Chen’s fame to new heights, leading to him becoming someone known by everyone.
Jiang Chen heard all the discussions about himself. With an indifferent expression, he walked in front of a warrior and asked with a smile, “Brother, do you know how to get to Mount Tianyuan?”
Hearing that someone was going to Mount Tianyuan, many people immediately turned around and looked at Jiang Chen. Anyone who was going to Mount Tianyuan right now must be some geniuses, because Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi had only invited the geniuses from the younger generation.
“Little brother, why are you going to Mount Tianyuan now? It’s not safe to be there at this moment!”
The warrior looked at Jiang Chen with a surprised expression.
“I’m going to partic.i.p.ate in the Gathering of Skynet, but I’m not exactly sure where it’s located. I hope you can guide me.”
While saying that, Jiang Chen flipped his palm and handed a pill over to the warrior. When the warrior lowered his head and looked at it, he was instantly stunned; it was an Earth Restoration Pill!
With a quick hand, the warrior immediately s.n.a.t.c.hed the Earth Restoration Pill from Jiang Chen’s hand. The way he looked at Jiang Chen instantly change, this young man was such a generous man, paying an Earth Restoration Pill just for some guide! An Earth Restoration Pill was equal to ten thousand Mortal Restoration Pills!
The man felt he was really lucky; this was free money dropping down from the sky!
“Little brother, since you’re so generous, I’ll just accompany you to Mount Tianyuan! I’m very familiar with the road there!”
The warrior patted his own chest as he spoke. An Earth Restoration Pill was more than enough for him to show this kindness, therefore, he decided to bring Jiang Chen to Mount Tianyuan himself. He could also check out that Gathering of Skynet.
“If that is the case, thank you for helping.”
Jiang Chen cupped his fist toward the warrior. After that, he grabbed the warrior’s shoulder and leapt into the sky, soon disappearing into the far distance.
Those men at the back were stunned by what they saw. When they finally woke up, they started yelling for that man’s great luck. He actually got an Earth Restoration Pill for such an easy job, what a lucky b.a.s.t.a.r.d!
“d.a.m.n it, it really p.i.s.ses me off when comparing my luck to his! Nowadays, those geniuses just don’t take their wealth seriously; he just gave him an Earth Restoration Pill just to guide him!”
“I agree, it’s too wasteful! That lucky b.a.s.t.a.r.d, if he had asked me, I would carry him there on my back! That’s an Earth Restoration Pill!”
“This is our fate, we have spent so much time here discussing, but luck just doesn’t want to strike us. I’m so jealous!”
Yes, they were jealous. It was such an easy task for an Earth Restoration Pill, almost equal to picking it up from the floor. But, this ridiculous luck just didn’t want to strike them! This really p.i.s.sed them off.
In the sky far ahead of them, above the stretches of the deserted mountain range, Jiang Chen was flying with great speed. The warrior next to him was so shocked that his mouth was wide open. This young man whom he was guiding only looked like he was 17 years old, but his speed was incredible! Although this warriors was an Early Divine Core warrior, he was hundreds of times slower than this young man.
“What a young hero! Little brother, I’m so envious of your powerful cultivation at such a young age!”
The warrior couldn’t help but say.
“As a young warrior, I naturally need to be more adventurous, that’s why I want to partic.i.p.ate in this Gathering of Skynet. I heart it will be a grand event.”
Jiang Chen replied with a smile.
“Of course, it will be a grand event! With Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi’s calling, there will be many geniuses showing up to attend this gathering; it is going to be a magnificent event! But, I think that Jiang Chen won’t show up, and the event will end without much happening. Therefore, you made the right decision by joining this gathering, not only will there not be any danger, you can also flatter both the Shangguan Clan and the Myriad Sword Sect! It will surely bring you a lot of advantages in the future!”
The warrior said with a joyful expression, expressing his envy through his words. He felt not being able to join the gathering was a pity, because he was too old for it.
“That’s hard to say, maybe he is already on his way to Mount Tianyuan.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile.
“Then he really is an idiot! It is clear that this gathering is a trap placed down specifically for him! But, I’ve heard that Jiang Chen is a fierce man, some even say that he is a complete maniac. Perhaps he truly will show up. If that happens, the Gathering of Skynet will be really interesting!”
The warrior had no idea that the man beside him was the infamous Jiang Chen. If he knew the real ident.i.ty of this young man, he would be extremely terrified, and perhaps unable to even stand straight.
Mount Tianyuan, it was located at the border of the Jian Province. However, it landscape was nowhere near as amazing as its name, it was a desolate land where people rarely came.
Right at this moment, at the deepest area of Mount Tianyuan, a mountain peak had been slashed flat by someone, creating an open s.p.a.ce platform. On top of this platform, dozens of warriors had gathered.
Some tables and chair completely made from rock were placed in two straight rows. Right now, some of the tables were full. The majority of the warriors here were from the younger generation. Some of them were older than thirty, but in their early thirties. All of them had pretty strong cultivation bases, and the weakest of them were Late Divine Core warriors.
All these warriors came here because of Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi. The Jian Province was the second strongest province, and it housed hundreds of different powers. With Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi’s calling, it was perfectly normal for so many geniuses to come attend the gathering. Of course, many of them were here to flatter the two superpowers.
