Chapter 365 – This Guy Cannot Remain Alive
The group had a joyful gathering the same night, and there was no intense atmosphere around them, as if the troubles and enemies weren’t related to them any longer.
Everyone were happy to meet with their familiar friends. They were exchanging stories and filling the room with laughter.
“Jiang Chen, I’m afraid your arrival at the Martial Palace will soon spread to the Jian Province. The Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect won’t let you off easily, so I’m afraid even the Martial Palace isn’t a safe place for you.”
Yu Zihan worriedly said.
“When the soldiers attack, the general will defend them, and when the water rises, the earth will block it off. There will always be a solution to a problem, and I’m not scared at all, so why are you worried?”
Jiang Chen said with a faint smile, showing them a face filled with absolutely no worry. His goal was actually completely after bringing the people around him to the Martial Palace. As for whether or not Wu Jiu was able to provide him protection, Jiang Chen wasn’t really bothered about that. As long as Wu Jiu could protect his friends, that would do.
“Junior disciple Jiang is the most abnormal genius I’ve ever known, he is a man with heavenly fate, and no matter how serious a matter is, he will be able to easily solve it. I’m sure that goes for this time as well.”
Guan Yiyun said with a laugh. His words were sincere, Jiang Chen was truly the most incredible genius he had ever met. Along Jiang Chen’s journey, he had created many miracles. All his foes were more powerful than him, and yet, he was still able to withstand them, and none of them would have good endings.
“Of course, have you forgotten that his name is Jiang Chen?”
Han Yan burst into laughter.
“But, he has been here for quite some time, and has even beaten up a prince, I believe Wu Lang should have heard about us arriving here, so why hasn’t he come yet?”
Nangong Wentian suddenly recalled Wu Lang.
“Oh, after he came back from the Island of Ice, he went straight into secluded cultivation, and I don’t think he has come out yet.”
Yu Zihan explained. After Wu Lang came back from the Island of Ice, he went straight into secluded cultivation, and didn’t appear in front of anyone.
“Wu Lang obtained quite some benefits back on the Island of Ice, I’m sure he’ll gain some improvements after coming out from his secluded cultivation.”
There were two reasons why Wu Lang had rushed into secluded cultivation. The first was that he had obtained quite good benefits on the Island of Ice, and the second was that he was blown away by Jiang Chen’s performance. As a crown prince from the Martial Saint Dynasty, and the young palace chief, as well a Mid Combat Soul genius, he had never suffered such a huge blow before. Jiang Chen’s performance was a heavy blow to him.
“d.a.m.n it, even Wu Jiu hasn’t shown himself, are they trying to push us aside? If Wu Jiu doesn’t want to help us, we won’t be safe even if we’re in the Martial Palace.”
Big Yellow gloomily said. He thought that once he and Jiang Chen arrived at the Martial Palace, Wu Jiu would immediately come out and greet them. However, after having been here for so long, he had yet to show his face.
“Don’t worry, brother Jiu isn’t that kind of person.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile on his face. As the once greatest Saint under the Heavens, he had sharp eyes when it came to discovering a person’s true character. Few could compare with his ability to judge a person, and Jiang Chen had a clear understanding regarding what kind of person Wu Jiu was. He was a man with a good temper and would always place his brother in front.
The news about Jiang Chen’s arrival at the Martial Palace, as well as the incident where he beat up a prince had spread like a tornado not only in the Martial Palace, but the Jian Province as well.
At the same time, what happened in the Jian Province had been heard by those in the Martial Palace. Of course, the most explosive news was Jiang Chen wreaking havoc on Mount Tianyuan, killing both number one geniuses from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect.
These two news brought a gigantic storm to the entire Jian Province and Martial Palace, and it even spread to the Martial Saint Dynasty. Jiang Chen’s name had become something everyone were talking about, he was a chaotic devil, and no one like him had ever appeared before. At least, no one like him had ever existed in the Eastern Continent’s history.
“d.a.m.n it, that Jiang Chen is such a vicious man! He even killed Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi! I’ve heard he isn’t even a Combat Soul warrior yet, just a Peak Divine Core warrior! What a monster!”
“Not only is his strength incredibly formidable, his bravery is also unprecedented! He’s incredibly daring, as if there is no one in this world whom he doesn’t dare to offend! Killing geniuses from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect, beating up princes… he is going to turn the entire Eastern Continent upside down!”
“He’s only a Peak Late Divine Core warrior, and if he breaks through to the Combat Soul realm, that’ll be even worse! I think only a Combat King warrior can defeat him by then. However, there are only a few Combat King warriors in the Martial Saint Dynasty. Don’t tell me this guy is a reincarnated saint?”
Jiang Chen’s name was being discussed in every corner of the Martial Palace.
“Have you guys heard? Jiang Chen has come to the Martial Palace, and he even beat up a prince! He’s a chaotic devil king!”
“I really wonder how he managed to escape from the Jian Province, as the entire province was sealed by both superpowers. And how could he reach the Martial Palace in such a short time after killing Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi? His speed is incredible!”
“More importantly, the first thing this guy did after reaching the Martial Palace was beat up a prince! Oh Heavens, is there anything this Jiang Chen doesn’t dare do?”
At the same time, Jiang Chen’s name was also being discussed in every corner of the Jian Province. The entire Jian Province was locked up like a cellar, and not even a fly could escape without notice. However, even under such tight control, Jiang Chen still managed to reach the Martial Saint Dynasty without anyone knowing.
Within Shangguan Clan!
“Clan Chief, that guy has fled the Jian Province and gone to the Martial Palace, what should we do now?”
A Combat Soul Clan Elder angrily said.
“Since the Martial Palace announced they would provide protection for the Black Sect, we know there is some sort of relations.h.i.+p between Jiang Chen and them. I’m afraid he might have a close relations.h.i.+p with the Palace Chief. If not, he wouldn’t have gone to the Martial Palace.”
“If that’s the case, it will be a difficult situation to resolve. However, Jiang Chen has killed many of our men, even our number one genius Shangguan Yiqing was killed by him, we can’t just let this matter off so easily.”
All the Combat Soul Clan Elders were furious. They weren’t only losing all their elite disciples, but also the Shangguan Clan’s dignity.
“We can’t let go off this matter so easily, I’ll proceed to the Martial Palace tomorrow, I want him to pay for my grandson’s death! I’m going to rip that guy into a thousand pieces, and not only the Ninth Emperor, even the Majestic Emperor has to give us some words on this.”
Shangguan Ying was fuming with anger. Shangguan Yiqing was his grandson, and the death of his grandson nearly caused his fury to turn into flames.
The Clan Chief was sitting in his seat with a ghastly expression. Jiang Chen was at the Martial Palace right now, and if the Ninth Emperor really wanted to protect him, it would be a difficult situation to deal with, because no matter how strong the Shangguan Clan was, they still had to give the Ninth Emperor face.
At this moment, the Great Elder, Shangguan Qingming stood up from his seat. He walked back and forth within the hall, then, his eyes lit up, and he turned to Shangguan Sheng and said, “Clan Chief, we need to kill this guy as soon as possible! We’ve found out everything about this Jiang Chen, he was only an Early Mortal Core warrior when he made his debut in the Qi Province, but just a year later, he has grown to the Peak Late Divine Core realm! His growth speed is insane, and even more frightening is the fact that he has the ability to kill Mid Combat Soul warriors, which means only Late Combat Soul warriors can kill him! Therefore, we need to kill him before he completely outgrows us! If we give him room to continue growing, I don’t think it will take long before we lost all ability to get revenge. Perhaps our clan will be destroyed by that guy!”
Shangguan Qingming’s words were like a bomb exploding within the hall, it instantly woke everyone up, including Shangguan Sheng.
Precisely! Shangguan Qingming’s words were right to the point! The real frightening part of Jiang Chen was not his current combat strength, but his potential and speed of growth! It was so fast that it simply caught everyone off guard. If they didn’t kill him as soon as possible and gave him room to grow, it would be really difficult to kill him in the future. There was a saying; nurturing a tiger only invites calamity. Sooner or later, Jiang Chen would become the Shangguan Clan’s biggest threat.
“Clan Chief, what Great Elder said is correct, we can’t let this guy grow any longer! He has become a huge threat to our future!”
Someone said with a loud voice.
“Fine, I’ll go find the Myriad Sword Sect’s Sect Chief now, then we’ll go together to the Martial Palace tomorrow. We need to put some pressure on the Ninth Emperor, I believe he will know what’s more important to them, and won’t offend both superpowers because of that guy.”
Shangguan Sheng suddenly stood up from his seat, and with a move, he disappeared from the hall.
The next day, when they sky had just turned bright, a few appeared outside the Martial Palace’s main gate.
“Jiang Chen, get out here right now!”
A loud shout suddenly resounded throughout the entire Martial Palace like a fierce clap of thunder, instantly shocking everyone.
“What’s going on? Who is that, and why is he making such loud noise this early in the morning?”
“He’s coming for Jiang Chen, perhaps it’s someone from the Myriad Sword Sect or Shangguan Clan? Let’s go check it out!”
“It’s been a long time since the Martial Palace has been so lively! That Jiang Chen arrived here just yesterday, and something big is already going to happen today!”
The quiet Martial Palace instantly became heated, and figures of men kept flying out from where they were staying, rus.h.i.+ng toward the main gate.
Right now, within Yu Zihan’s courtyard, when the group heard the shouting, their expressions immediately changed.
“The man’s cultivation is really strong, I think he’s at least a Late Combat Soul warrior. Not many people are brave enough to shout at the Martial Palace’s main gate, I think it must be the Shangguan Clan’s Clan Chief.”
Han Yan said with an ugly expression.
“Come, let’s go have a look.”
Jiang Chen’s expression was gloomy. He walked out from the courtyard and flew toward the main gate.
Right at this moment, many people had gathered in the sky above Mount Wufu. Outside the main gate, six powerful men were sighted, and all of them were Late Combat Soul warriors. The two leading men were in their forties. The one with the domineering energy surrounding him was Shangguan Sheng, and as for the other men, he was wearing green clothes with a white belt. His eyes shone brightly, and his body was skinny. He was none other than the other Jian Province’s big shot, the Myriad Sword Sect’s Sect Chief, Tiangang Yi!
