Chapter 354 – All to Kill
At this moment, the tables in front of these people were filled with delicacies. Their expressions were very relaxed, as if they weren’t here to fight, but to enjoy themselves.
Indeed, these guys felt absolutely no pressure by joining the Gathering of Skynet, because Jiang Chen was most likely not going to show up. Even if he did, there was no way he would be able to escape the Skynet Formation set up by Shangguan Yiqing; what awaited him was certain death.
Two men sat at the front. One of them wore a green robe, and his brows made him seem very domineering. He looked to be in his late twenties, and he was portraying a n.o.ble image from all over his body. His dark hair was fluttering in the breeze, and a faint smile could be seen on his face. He was none other than the organizer of this Gathering of Skynet, the number one genius from the Shangguan Clan, Shangguan Yiqing!
As for the man who was qualified to sit side by side with Shangguan Yiqing, clearly, it would be Xuan Yuzi from the Myriad Sword Sect. Xuan Yuzi was wearing pure white clothes, he had a handsome face, and unique white hair. A huge sword was placed on his left-hand side, and he held a gla.s.s of wine with the other hand, causing him to look like a Deity of Wine and Sword.
Within the Jian Province, it was really unusual to see these two men peacefully sitting together and drinking. Everyone present at the scene knew they were rivals, and every time they met, they would definitely fight brutally with each other for at least three hundred rounds before stopping. At the end of the fight, both men would enter secluded cultivation with the intentions of having a life or death battle after coming out from seclusion. But unexpectedly, Jiang Chen’s debut had caused them to put aside their resentment, and join forces to kill Jiang Chen.
One a few of the stone tables located near these two men sat all the Combat Soul geniuses. Two of them even came from the Martial Palace. Because they had a pretty good relations.h.i.+p with Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi, they were invited to come here.
“Come, let us have a toast with this drink!”
Shangguan Yiqing held the wine gla.s.s in his hand high up and drank it up in one gulp. After that, he said, “All of you are really giving me a lot of face by coming here! From now on, you are all my friends! If you face any difficulties in the future, you can just come to me, Shangguan Yiqing!”
“Haha, brother Shangguan is a generous man! I’m guessing Jiang Chen won’t show up to this Gathering of Skynet! Faced with the combined force of the two strongest geniuses in the Jian Province… he just doesn’t have enough lives to do so!”
Someone said with a loud voice.
“Precisely! With brother Shangguan and brother Xuan here, if that Jiang Chen isn’t an idiot, he won’t show up!”
“It’s hard to tell right now. I was at the Island of Ice, and I witnessed how fierce and brutal this Jiang Chen can be, we can never underestimate him! To be frank, he is a maniac, and if he receives the news about this gathering, I’m afraid he might really come here.”
A young man said loudly. He was one of the men who went to the Island of Ice, and he had witnessed how Jiang Chen slaughtered all geniuses from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect, as well as the scene where he defeated Wu Cong. That’s why he knew how daring Jiang Chen was.
“Precisely, I’ve also witnessed how terrifying that Jiang Chen is! This man is a daring b.a.s.t.a.r.d; there is nothing he doesn’t dare do!”
Someone added. For those who went to the Island of Ice and witnessed Jiang Chen’s approach, they were all stupefied by his incredible courage and formidable strength.
“It would be good if he really show up. If not, all our restless effort is going to go to waste. I really regret not going to the Island of Ice. If I had gone, I would have the chance to meet that guy.”
Xuan Yuzi coldly harrumphed. Not being able to go to the Island of Ice was his biggest regret, and now, in order to defend the dignity of the Myriad Sword Sect, as well as his status as the number one genius, he was forced to kill Jiang Chen. On the other side, Shangguan Yiqing was feeling the same way.
“Yea, we have so many people here, why should we be afraid of him? If he really comes here, I’ll make sure he dies without a proper burial ground!”
A Combat Soul warrior said, his expression prideful.
“If I was Jiang Chen, I would definitely show up! This is the pride of a genius!”
Shangguan Yiqing said.
“That Jiang Chen has a horrifying sword with him, he can easily destroy and Superior Weapons with it, and unleash the power of a King Weapon! He actually used that sword to defeat Prince Wu Cong!”
“No worries, I have secretly set up the Skynet Formation within this mountain range. It took me years to study and create this formation, even a Late Combat Soul warrior would be trapped in it. That sword in Jiang Chen’s hand will soon be mine.”
Shangguan Yiqing said with a sneer.
“It’s such a mighty weapon, if it goes to someone who doesn’t know how to use a sword gets it, it would be a really great waste. The sword should be mine.”
Xuan Yuzi gazed at Shangguan Yiqing as he spoke.
Before Jiang Chen showed up, before he was killed by them, these two men had started to fight over his sword. In their minds, Jiang Chen was no different from dead meat.
“Enough, let’s wait until we’ve killed Jiang Chen, only then will we decide who the sword goes to. I don’t want to fight with you right now.”
Shangguan Yiqing shouted out. Before Jiang Chen showed up, he didn’t want internal fights. Their top priority was to kill Jiang Chen. As for the distribution of Jiang Chen’s wealth, it was better to wait until after they had killed Jiang Chen.
Two hours later, two figures flew in from the far distance and stopped not far in front of Mount Tianyuan. These two figures were Jiang Chen, and the warrior who led him here.
“Little brother, Mount Tianyuan is right in front of us.”
The warrior pointed at the desolate mountain range and spoke.
“En, let’s go!”
Jiang Chen nodded his head. He took a big step forward and flew toward the mountain range. Soon, the two men reached the inner area of the mountain range. The scene on top of the mountain peak was clearly revealed in front of them. They also found that around the mountain peak, many people had gathered to watch the show.
“Everyone, how can your Gathering of Skynet be considered a grand event without me?”
A bright and clear voice interrupted everyone from continuing drinking. They immediately raised their heads and threw glances into the direction where that sound came from. What they saw was two men walking toward their direction in the sky. The leading man was a young man dressed in white, he was a handsome and gentle looking man, and he carried a faint smile on his face. His bright eyes shone like the brightest stars in the night’s sky. Next to him was middle aged warrior who was trembling with excitement.
Looking at this young man in white, someone immediately cried out in surprise. As a man who had personally seen Jiang Chen on the Island of Ice, this guy could instantly recognize this young man’s ident.i.ty.
“What? He is that Jiang Chen?”
Hearing Jiang Chen’s name, the crowd instantly jumped up from their seats, including Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi. The sword that was next to Xuan Yuzi was now held in his hand, emitting a cold and bright reflection.
“That’s right, it’s me.”
Jiang Chen casually shrugged his shoulder. An expression basically saying he didn’t take any of them seriously could be found on his face.
But, the middle aged warrior standing next to Jiang Chen was greatly terrified. He tripped on his feet and nearly fell down from the sky! Without hesitating, he immediately turned around and fled far away from Jiang Chen, joining the nearby crowd, sweat pouring down all over his face.
“d.a.m.n it, daddy actually brought Jiang Chen here?!”
The warriors kept wiping the cold sweat from his face. He still couldn’t control his trembling body. Only now did he realize that this young man indeed looked the same as the description of that legendary Jiang Chen. White clothes, about 17 years old, and a handsome face.
“Jiang Chen, honestly, I never expected you to come here.”
Although Shangguan Yiqing was squinting his eyes, it still couldn’t hide the brightness within. Without blinking, he examined Jiang Chen, as if he was trying to see through every inch of him.
“Of course. If I hadn’t shown up, you would all be very disappointed.”
While saying that, Jiang Chen walked step by step toward the mountain peak. With just a few steps, he had arrived. There were no Yuan energy ripples that could be sensed from his body, but no one dared underestimate him. Some of the Late Divine Core geniuses who were standing close to Jiang Chen started backing off out of fear.
The name Jiang Chen by itself was a symbol, a symbol capable of sending s.h.i.+vers down the spines of these guys, especially those who had personally witnessed how ferocious Jiang Chen was back on the Island of Ice, they were even more scared. Without having witnessed how Jiang Chen fought before, no one would be able to know just how terrifying this young man truly could be.
The arrival of Jiang Chen caused those warriors who were here to watch the show to instantly become restless. Each and every single one of them threw their gazes at Jiang Chen.
“So, this is Jiang Chen? He does look really young! I never thought he’d actually come here!”
“He is doomed! Shangguan Yiqing has set up the Skynet Formation, coming here alone is no different than committing suicide!”
“Not necessarily. This Jiang Chen doesn’t seem to be an idiot, and he since he dared to come here, I’m sure he must have prepared something. Let’s just wait and see, I’m sure there will be a difficult fight here today.”
Anyone who had heard about what Jiang Chen had done so far knew one thing; with Jiang Chen’s character, he would definitely wreak havoc at today’s Gathering of Skynet!
“Jiang Chen, I don’t know if you’re an idiot, or just overconfident. I don’t mind telling you this; I’ve set up a Skynet Formation here, and since you’re already here, there is no way you can run away.”
The smile on Shangguan Yiqing’s face was getting bigger and bigger.
“Many people have tried to capture me. But, until now, I’ve still been able to go wherever I like.”
Jiang Chen casually said. Then, he simply grabbed a wine bottle on the table next to him and drank it in one gulp. Then, he praised, “Good wine!”
“Jiang Chen, I really admire your courage for coming here alone. But, why didn’t you bring any of your helpers?”
Shangguan Yiqing asked with a sneer.
“I don’t need anyone to help. Also, I have no clue why you’ve asked so many stinking potatoes and rotten eggs to come here. Do you really think that with just these guys alone, you’ll be able to defeat me? Or, did you ask them to come here to die?”
Jiang Chen pointed at the Divine Core geniuses and spoke to them in a rude manner.
His words caused ugly expressions to bloom onto the faces in the crowd. No matter what, they were all elites from different powers, rare geniuses! But this guy, he just called them stinking potatoes and rotten eggs! This really p.i.s.sed them off!
“b.a.s.t.a.r.d, who do you think you are? I’m going to kill you today and make you die without a proper burial ground!”
A young and aggressive man was the first to jump out. He jumped out as he pointed his finger at Jiang Chen’s nose and scolded. Since they had Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi to back them up, these men had become very daring.
But too bad, he just didn’t know who Jiang Chen really was.
“Is that so?”
Jiang Chen’s gaze became cold. With a move of his arm, he tightly clenched the young man’s neck with speed like a clap of thunder. It was so fast that this young man didn’t have any time to react at all!
