Chapter 378 – Fierce Fight
Nangong Wentian and Han Yan were really angry. However, they fury didn’t make Shangguan Ying feel ashamed of uncomfortable, in fact, it brought him satisfaction. For him, the angrier these guys became, the more fear they had of him.
The feeling of making his enemies feel scared of him was really pleasant. Shangguan Ying was enjoying the expressions on the faces of these people now. In his mind, they were all turtles in a jar, and none of them could escape from his palm. He was going to kill every single one of them, especially Jiang Chen. He wanted to give him good torture before killing him. If not, he would feel sorry to his grandson.
“Haha, Jiang Chen, there is no way you can escape from me today, all of you are going to die miserably; this is the result of challenging the Shangguan Clan!”
Shangguan Ying let out a vicious laugh, because he couldn’t think of any possible way these juniors could run away from him. The strongest one here was Jiang Chen, and although he was able to kill Mid Combat Soul warriors, he didn’t have any chance when facing a Late Combat Soul warrior.
“Haha, Shangguan Ying, are you sure you can kill us all today?”
Instead of feeling angry, Jiang Chen was actually laughing. There were no signs of nervousness on his face.
Not only Jiang Chen, even Han Yan and Nangong Wentian were smiling. Their angry look was all gone, and they weren’t nervous or panicked. This situation startled Shangguan Ying for a moment, but soon, he concluded that these guys were just pretending.
“Hmph! It’s useless to pretend to be calm, no one is going to save you today, not even the Ninth Emperor! Jiang Chen, I heard you found a broken piece of an Emperor Weapon on the Island of Ice, if you give it to me, I might consider giving you a quick death!”
Shangguan Ying coldly harrumphed and threw his sharp gaze onto Jiang Chen’s face. The news about Jiang Chen finding a broken piece of an Emperor Weapon was known by many, including Shangguan Ying. Greed was the nature of almost all people, especially when the prey was right in front of them.
“I’m sorry, it is impossible for me to give you the broken part of the Emperor Weapon. Furthermore, who told you we will definitely die today? If I say you’re going to die today, would you believe it?”
Jiang Chen folded his arms and spoke in a casual manner.
“What? I’m going to die today? Haha…”
Shangguan Ying was startled for a moment upon hearing what Jiang Chen said, then he immediately burst into laughter, as if he had just the funniest joke in this world. It was as if a tiny mouse had put on a fierce look and said to a cat ten times bigger than itself that the cat was going to die, what a joke!
“You’re really funny, Jiang Chen! I had no idea you could make such jokes! But, since you don’t want to hand over the broken part of the Emperor Weapon, I’ll take it myself later. Once I kill you, all your belongings will be mine.”
Shangguan Ying unleashed his killing intent. He didn’t want to waste any more breath on Jiang Chen, he just wanted to kill him.
A gigantic illusionary palm suddenly descended from the sky with a loud rumbling sound. Shangguan Ying was perfectly unleas.h.i.+ng his Late Combat Soul energy. It was so powerful that no one could stare right into his face. The gigantic palm carried a devastating force, and approached Jiang Chen in the blink of an eye.
Faced with Shangguan Ying’s formidable attack, Jiang Chen still maintained the same calm smile on his face, and hadn’t moved a step. He didn’t even show any signs of counter-attacking.
“Hmph! What an ignorant young man, you still want to pretend you aren’t afraid of me? Die!”
Shangguan Ying coldly harrumphed, his face filled with a vicious smile. With incredible speed, the gigantic palm continued descending toward Jiang Chen.
Right at this moment, a ferocious cry suddenly resounded. Within a split second, Shangguan Ying saw a white beam jump right in front of Jiang Chen. It was a huge monster over 30 meters tall, and when it appeared, it simply punched out with its fist.
The void was shaking and burning because of the tremendous force. With just one punch, the Ice Demon King shattered Shangguan Ying’s attack easily as if it was breaking dry branches.
Tap tap tap!
Shangguan Ying was forced to take three steps back.
Shangguan Ying’s expression changed dramatically, then he threw a look of disbelief toward the monster made from ice. A ma.s.sive storm erupted in his mind, and he was greatly terrified.
Actually, Shangguan Ying did notice this monster when he arrived, but since the Ice Demon King just stood there without leaking any of its aura, Shangguan Ying just ignored it. However, he had never expected this monster to be so powerful. Judging from its punch just now, it was a peak Combat Soul existence, and it possessed combat strength greater than his.
“How is it, Shangguan Ying? I told you, there is no way you can kill me today, oh, and since you’re already here, don’t even think about leaving.”
Jiang Chen said.
“How could this be possible? How can you control such a powerful monster?”
Shangguan Ying felt he could hardly breathe now. He had no idea how Jiang Chen did it, how could a young Peak Divine Core warrior control a Peak Combat Soul demon beast? This was too shocking!
“That’s not what you should be worrying about right now, you better put more consideration into the situation you’re currently facing.”
Jiang Chen casually shrugged his shoulders.
“Hmph! Jiang Chen, you really this you can defeat me with just a monster? Fat chance! This monster only has a strong body and cold elemental attack, it doesn’t have any strong combat skills! With my own combat skills and combat weapon, I’ll be able to kill it!”
Shangguan Ying said with a loud voice. He had found out that although this monster’s combat strength was powerful, it all came from its body’s strength. It didn’t know any powerful combat skills, and it didn’t own any combat weapons. That was the difference between them.
“Let me give you a friendly reminder, if you want to run away, you better do it now, while you still can.”
What Jiang Chen said was correct. With Shangguan Ying’s Late Combat Soul cultivation, if he wanted to run away, even the Ice Demon King would be unable to stop him. This wasn’t the world of glaciers, so the Ice Demon King’s combat strength and speed wasn’t at peak form.
“What a joke, you’re all going to die! Earth Shattering Palm!”
Would Shangguan Ying choose to run away? Definitely not! For him, this was a rare chance to kill Jiang Chen. He simply strengthened his spirit and attacked with the Shangguan Clan’s mighty skill, the Earth Shattering Palm. When this skill was unleashed by him, its power was far beyond that of any of the other men from the Shangguan Clan who had used it against Jiang Chen before.
Jiang Chen and the group immediately moved to the side, giving s.p.a.ce to the Ice Demon King and Shangguan Ying. At the same time, Jiang Chen circulated his Great Soul Derivation skill and locked down on Shangguan Ying, preventing him from running away from the scene. Jiang Chen knew very well how horrifying the Ice Demon King was, and once Shangguan Ying was entangled in a battle with it, there wouldn’t be any good endings for him.
In fact, Jiang Chen didn’t want to let Shangguan Ying run away today. The reason was simple. First, Shangguan Ying was from the Shangguan Clan, Jiang Chen’s deadly enemies, and there was no way he would set his enemy free. Secondly, Shangguan Ying had found out about the existence of the Ice Demon King, so if he ran away from here, his secret weapon would no longer be a secret. For him, the Ice Demon King was his biggest secret weapon, and it would lose its significant meaning if the secret was exposed.
The Ice Demon King furiously roared out, then it threw its gigantic fist onto Shangguan Ying’s Earth Shattering Palm.
The atmosphere was once again stirred up, but this time, the Ice Demon King wasn’t in an advantageous position. Just like Shangguan Ying had said, the frightening part of the Ice Demon King was its body strength, but on the other side, Shangguan Ying could attack with a powerful combat skill. A mighty combat skill could easily boost his combat strength by many times.
Therefore, the Ice Demon King was knocked back by Shangguan Ying this time.
“Haha, this monster is no match for me! Jiang Chen, if this is your secret weapon, you are all going to die today! Once I kill this monster, I’ll proceed to kill you all!”
Shangguan Ying burst into laughter after seeing the Ice Demon King knocked back by his attack. After that, he brutally unleashed his combat skill once again, causing colorful energy ripples to sweep across the sky toward the Ice Demon King.
The Ice Demon King furiously roared out. It didn’t know what death was, so it just countered the attack without any focus on its own defense.
“Little Chen, can this Ice Demon defeat Shangguan Ying?”
Han Yan asked with mixed emotions.
“I don’t think so.”
Nangong Wentian shook his head.
“Just wait and see. Shangguan Ying will die if he doesn’t run away from here.”
Jiang Chen said with a sneer on his face. He was the only one who knew the Ice Demon King’s incredible ability, the ability to resurrect endlessly. Since Yan Chenyu was here, it also meant that the Black Ice Talisman was here, and as long as the Ice Demon King was near it, it would be able to hide its demon soul and resurrect instantly.
Han Yan and Nangong Wentian exchanged glances. They had no idea how Jiang Chen could be so confident.
On the other side, Shangguan Ying and the Ice Demon King were fighting each other intensely. The more they fought, the more scared Shangguan Ying became, because this monster was extremely hard to defeat. It simply fought without a single care for its own safety, and all it knew how to do was attack crazily and never defend. The way it fought simply shocked Shangguan Ying.
“d.a.m.n it, is this monster not afraid of death? Since you don’t want to defend yourself, let me kill you!”
Shangguan Ying cursed loudly, then he moved his arm and drew out a dazzling broadsword, a Superior Weapon. With Shangguan Ying’s status, the combat weapon in his hand was actually a top Superior Weapon, not something those ordinary Superior Weapons’ could compare with.
Shangguan Ying raised the blade in his hand high up into the air, and with all the Yuan energy in his body, he swung the blade toward the Ice Demon King that was rus.h.i.+ng in his direction.
The Ice Demon King didn’t dodge the attack. In an instant, its body was slashed into two pieces by Shangguan Ying, then its entire body shattered and turned into solid ice cubes.
Han Yan, Nangong Wentian, and Big Yellow cried out at the same time. When they saw the Ice Demon King killed by Shangguan Ying, their expressions immediately became extremely ugly.
