Chapter 398 – Wiping Out the Demon Palace
This was an extremely shocking scene! A single attack killed an early Combat Soul demon beast, the third master of the Demon Palace! Even more shocking, it was a young man!
“Oh heavens, what did I just see?”
“Dead? He killed the third master?”
“This is terrifying, just how strong is he? That’s a Combat Soul demon beast, but he just killed him with a single strike! This is too shocking, am I dreaming right now?”
All the people of Lianyun Castle felt as if they were dreaming. A young man had just killed the third master who had been bullying them all this time!
Right at this moment, regardless of who it was, those from Lianyun Castle or those from the Demon Palace, they all looked at this young man with a graceful bearing in fear.
“You-, you-… You killed our third master?!”
A man dressed in black roared at Jiang Chen. His voice was clearly trembling, as he was scared of Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen was obviously not bothered by these men in black. He stretched his arm forward and retrieved a golden demon soul from the Hawk King’s dead body.
“An Early Combat Soul demon soul, I think it should be able to help me form another one hundred dragon marks. If I can kill all three masters of the Demon Palace, I’ll be able to break through to the Combat Soul realm.”
A faint smile appeared on Jiang Chen’s face. After that, he unleashed the True Dragon Flame from his palm and engulfed the golden demon soul. With the intense heat coming from the flame, the demon soul started melting and was being absorbed by Jiang Chen.
In just a few breaths time, Jiang Chen had completely absorbed the demon soul. Just as he expected, this demon soul had given him 100 new dragon marks.
Jiang Chen currently had a total of 4,700 Dragon Marks. He just needed another 300 to reach his target of 5,000 Dragon Marks. Now, his next target was clear; the two other masters of the Demon Palace!
Jiang Chen liked doing things like this, as it was a win-win situation. Not only could he get rid of these demons that bullied the humans, but he would also be able to get what he wanted.
“Boss, the third palace master was killed, what should we do now?”
A demon beast whispered to his leader.
“Let’s return and inform the palace master about this; I’m sure he’ll break all the bones in this guy’s body and then burn him to ashes.”
The leader of the demons gnashed his teeth in fury as he spoke.
After that, the several hundred demon beasts jumped into the sky and turned back into black smoke, leaving the place. All demon beasts were cruel and brutal beings by nature, but at the same time, they weren’t stupid. This young man who had suddenly appeared in Lianyun Castle had the ability to kill their third palace master, meaning they were no match for him. If they truly fought him, they would only meet certain death.”
“Haha, since you’re all here you might as well just give me your lives!”
Jiang Chen burst into laughter. Following that, he unleashed the True Dragon Palm. All these cruel demon beasts deserved to die, and since Jiang Chen had gotten himself involved in this matter, he might as well kill them all and annihilate the Demon Palace completely, helping this mountain range get rid of this disaster once and for all.
The gigantic blood-red dragon claw descended from the sky and grabbed onto the black smoke trying to leave.
Miserable shrieks could immediately be heard from within the black smoke. In an instant, the sky was filled with a b.l.o.o.d.y mist and torn off body parts fell. In just a short amount of time, the sky had become a living h.e.l.l.
These demon beasts were too weak compared to Jiang Chen. With just a single strike, more than seventy of them were killed, while the rest were all severely injured.
“Hmph! All of you must die!”
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed, then he simply waved his hand, unleas.h.i.+ng countless dazzling golden beams. Each beam looked like a sharp sword, and they weaved together to form a gigantic golden net. After that, he simply threw it forward.
None of the demon beasts who survived the first attack could defend themselves from this one. Their bodies were sliced by the net and were instantly killed. In their eyes, Jiang Chen was like a gigantic mammoth while they were just some poor little ants.
If a mammoth desired to step on a couple of ants and kill them, regardless of how many ants there were, nothing would be able to change their ill fate. It was all because of the gigantic gap between their strength.
“Come over here!”
Jiang Chen stretched his arm forward and pulled the leader of the men in black to him. This was the only survivor, but his face was extremely pale and looked awful.
This black-clothed man’s face was covered with fear, as the scene he faced was extremely terrifying. The Demon Palace had been running wild in this area and had never suffered any heavy blows. In his mind, this young man wasn’t a human, but a devil. In just less than one minute, this young man had killed every single demon beast, and he was the last survivor.
“Spare… please spare my life…”
The black-clothed man started begging for his life. Under the pressure of Jiang Chen’s energy, this was the first time he felt like such a tiny existence.
“Bring me to the Demon Palace.
Jiang Chen grabbed the black-clothed man’s neck, then they both simply disappeared from the scene.
The people from Lianyun Castle didn’t wake up from their shock until long after Jiang Chen left. They couldn’t stop thinking about the scene they just saw; it felt as if they were dreaming. If not for those piles of body parts in front of them, none of them would believe that this was real.
“What a formidable young man, he must be a peerless genius from some superpower.”
“I’m sure he’s a genius from the Profound River Palace who is on a journey to gain experience. We’re lucky the Profound River Palace and the Demon King Palace are long-time enemies, as the Demon Palace is a power ruled by the Demon King Palace. Perhaps this young man truly is from the Profound River Palace.”
“Regardless of which superpower he came from, they’re all existences beyond our reach. I only hope he can eliminate the Demon Palace, wipe out our biggest threat.”
The people from Lianyun Castle were unable to calm themselves down for a long time. Today’s events were like something straight out of a fantasy; it was something that wouldn’t even happen in their wildest dreams.
Jiang Chen was controlling the black-clothed man, so he dared not neglect his orders. He brought Jiang Chen straight to the Demon Palace.
The Demon Palace was located in a valley right in the depths of this remote mountain range. It was a valley that was with fog, and it was reeking of demonic energy. The landscape of the valley was dangerous, but the scenery was beautiful, and the valley was rich in natural Yuan energy. It was a perfect place for cultivation.
“Young master, the Demon Palace is here.”
The black-clothed man pointed at the valley in front of them and spoke in an obsequious manner. He feared that if his voice was any louder, he might provoke this malefic and die.
Jiang Chen nodded his head with a satisfied expression.
The black-clothed man was thrilled upon seeing that Jiang Chen was satisfied. He said, “If that’s the case, can young master spare my life?”
“I’ll spare you a quick death.”
Jiang Chen squeezed his palm, breaking the black-clothed man’s neck. After that, he simply threw the corpse down onto the ground.
Jiang Chen waved his hand and retrieved the Heavenly Saint Sword. He swung the sword, causing it to produce sharp sounds. With a sneer on his face, Jiang Chen warmed up slightly, preparing for the grand slaughter.
He then raised the Heavenly Saint Sword high up into the air and injected his Yuan energy into it, causing it to turn into a gigantic sword more than 30 meters long. As the Heavenly Saint Sword let out a joyful cry, Jiang Chen simply swung it with tremendous force, unleas.h.i.+ng a huge sword beam toward the valley. It cut through the fog and continued down onto the Demon Palace.
A world-shaking explosive sound broke out in the silent valley. With that, a devastating energy swept across the entire valley, sending terrifying black smoke into the sky. This powerful attack instantly caused rows of buildings to collapse and turn into dust.
Miserable blood-curdling shrieks sounded out from the valley. Someone obviously was unlucky enough to get killed by Jiang Chen’s sword attack.
“Who did this?”
“Who dares attack the Demon Palace?!”
“d.a.m.n it; the Demon Palace is severely damaged!”
The entire Demon Palace had become restless. Powerful existences started shooting out from the valley, and in the blink of an eye, the entire sky above the Demon Palace was filled with these powerful existences. Some of these powerful existences were demon beasts who had transformed into human shape, and some were in their original, gigantic shapes. It was a terrifying scene.
When the people of the Demon Palace came out from the valley, they immediately saw Jiang Chen. This uninvited young man dressed in white who had a longsword in his hand was obviously the culprit, the one who destroyed the Demon Palace.
“Who are you?! What a daring b.a.s.t.a.r.d!”
A Late Divine Core demon shouted at Jiang Chen.
He was answered with a sword strike. It was a strike he was unable to dodge, this demon could only see a bright light s.h.i.+ne in his eyes, and after that, there was nothing, as his head had already separated from his neck and fallen from the sky. He didn’t even have the chance to respond, as he was instantly killed.
“Today I will destroy this place, and I will leave no survivors!”
Jiang Chen announced his purpose with a loud voice. Without showing any mercy, he charged into the center of the demons; then he started ferociously swinging his Heavenly Saint Sword around. With every swing of his sword, a huge amount of blood mist would splash into the sky. Many of those demons were killed instantly without any chance to fight back.
All by himself, Jiang Chen was going to wipe out this power established by demons. He wanted to kill all of them; that was his purpose today.
“Someone is slaughtering all demons at the Demon Palace, hurry up and inform both masters!”
The Demon Palace was in havoc right now. For them, the arrival of Jiang Chen was their doomsday.
The entire sky above the valley was filled with sword energies. Blood splashed everywhere, and corpses fell from the sky. The pungent smell of blood filled every part of the air around here. The sword energies resembled the grim reaper’s scythe as they mercilessly took the demons’ lives.
“This is ridiculous!”
Right at this moment, a furious cry sounded out from the valley like a sudden clap of thunder. After that, two bright beams shot up into the sky and arrived in front of Jiang Chen. Two adult men with muscular bodies were revealed.
One of the men was wearing a golden armor; he had thick golden hair like that of a lion. As for the other man, he wore a black robe and had a pair of vicious eyes, causing him to look like a wolf.
Both of them possessed powerful strength. One was an Early Combat Soul demon, while the other was a Mid Combat Soul demon. Without even thinking about it, Jiang Chen already knew who they were. They couldn’t be anyone other than the last two masters of the Demon Palace – The Lion King and the Wolf King.
