Sorry for the late releases, my day ended up being a busy one, so I couldn't start posting chapters until now.
Remember to check out my patreon!
I'm setting up a drive folder now. I'll send an invite to the folder to the emails of the patrons of February in 10-20 minutes.
Chapter 426 – Doomsday Has Arrived
“Such powerful energy! Why did these powerful people come to the Black Sect?”
“Why can I sense dangerous auras? I don’t think these people came here with friendly intentions!”
“Something serious is going to happen.”
No one from the Black Sect were able to remain calm. Everyone walked out from where they were and looked into the sky above them.
Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh…
All of the Divine Core warriors in the Black Sect flew out from where they were as well, joined by some Heavenly Core geniuses and sect elders. The two leading men were Daoist Black and Alchemist Guo Shan. Everyone had pale expressions, as no one had any idea what the purpose of this storm was.
“Sect Chief, what is this exactly?”
Someone asked. When that person first looked into the sky, he saw countless tornados swirling around, causing his expression to turn ugly.
“So many mighty warriors, I’ve never seen so many of them at the same time!”
A solemn expression emerged on Daoist Black’s face. He was easily able to tell that all those mighty warriors who arrived here were humans.
Soon, the tornados disappeared, and a group of more than a hundred people were revealed floating above the Black Sect. Each one of these persons were glowing brightly, as they were unleas.h.i.+ng their Yuan energy, causing the dark sky to look like it belonged to daytime.
Beneath the dark sky, it was destined that tonight would be a night of violence.
The hundred men group was led by two men with very powerful auras, and only Daoist Black was capable of sensing that. Both these men were Late Combat Soul warriors, and behind them were over thirty Divine Core warriors. The rest were all Heavenly Core warriors.
Even just the two Combat Soul warriors were enough to make Daoist Black gasp, because just one of these two Combat Soul warriors was more than enough to annihilate the Black Sect.
Perhaps only the three strongest provinces of the Eastern Continent had Late Combat Soul warriors. As for those two in front of him, no matter their att.i.tude or the manner they portrayed, they looked like someone who sat in high places. They were clearly no ordinary warriors.
“Listen up everyone from the Black Sect! I am the Shangguan Clan Chief from the Jian Province, and this man behind me is the Myriad Sword Sect Chief from the Jian Province as well; Tiangang Yi! The disciples of the Black Sect; Jiang Chen, Yan Chenyu, Han Yan, Yu Zihan, Guan Yiyun, and Tian Yishan have committed a capital offense, and the Martial Saint Dynasty’s Imperial Emperor has declared his Imperial Decree! Those who are related to these people will be punished with a death sentence! From now on, everyone in the Black Sect are criminals, and you’ll be put in captivity immediately!”
Shangguan Sheng said with a loud voice. Each word was like a clap of thunder that echoed throughout the entire Black Sect, causing everyone to be able to hear him loud and clear. His words immediately struck the Black Sect with panic.
“How could this happen? The two mammoths of the Jian Province actually came here personally? The Black Sect is finished!”
“Oh heavens, what did Jiang Chen do?! Not only did he offend the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect, he actually offended the Martial Saint Dynasty! His offense was so great that all those related to him has to be killed! What should we do? Do we really want to get involved in this?”
“What an unexpected disaster! Done for, this time we’re completely done for! If I had known this beforehand, I wouldn’t have joined the Black Sect!”
“Bulls.h.i.+t! Without senior disciple, the Black Sect would have been long gone! If any one of you who joined the Black Sect late dare say anything bad about senior disciple Jiang again, I will be the first one to kill you!”
The faces of all the disciples from the Black Sect had turned extremely ugly. They were instantly filled with despair. They all knew about the hatred between Jiang Chen and the two mammoths of the Jian Province. However, Jiang Chen had withdrawn from the Black Sect, so why were they still getting involved in this?
Daoist Black and Guo Shan were terrified as well. They had not expected anything like this to happen. The Black Sect had been propelling towards prosperity, so why would this unexpected disaster strike them?
But with their knowledge about Jiang Chen, they knew Shangguan Sheng wasn’t lying, as this young man was an existence who dared to do anything.
“Why do you want to drag the Black Sect into this matter? Jiang Chen has withdrawn from the Black Sect; what he did has nothing to do with us!”
A young and impetuous Heavenly Core warrior stood out and asked with a loud voice.
Tiangang Yi coldly harrumphed, then threw his razor sharp glance over to the young man who had just spoken. He casually waved his hand, unleas.h.i.+ng a bright beam that instantly pierced the young man’s body.
The young man let out a miserable shriek, then fell down from the sky, dead.
“Lock up the entire Black Sect and capture every single person! If anyone dares fight back, kill them on the spot!”
Tiangang Yi cruelly gave out his order. Without hesitating, the hundred men behind him immediately began their mission.
The combined force of the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect was a catastrophe for any sects and clans in the Eastern Continent, with the exception of the Martial Saint Dynasty.
In fact, it wasn’t necessary for both mammoths to be present here in order to accomplish their task. The reason they came here was because of Jiang Chen. They knew very well how strong Jiang Chen was. As long as Jiang Chen showed up, only Late Combat Soul warriors would have the ability to take him down.
“Why?! Why is this happening?!”
“This is too unfair!”
All disciples of the Black Sect started crying and yelling. Some tried to fight back, but they were immediately killed on the spot. No mercy was shown in this mission.
“Everyone listen up! Do not fight back!”
Daoist Black circulated his Yuan energy and shouted out loud. The enemy appeared in an imposing manner, and they clearly did not want to show any mercy. Those who dared fight back would have to face certain death, but if they didn’t fight back, they could at least keep their lives for now.
The Black Sect simply did not possess the strength to fight either of the two mammoths, let alone both of them.
Sorrow and complaints filled the entire place; it was a gray night for the Black Sect. None of them knew how they should deal with this situation; there was simply no way for them to fight back. Compared to the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect, they were just some tiny ants. These ferocious enemies could crush them whenever they wanted.
“You are Daoist Black?”
Shangguan Sheng turned to Daoist Black and asked.
“That’s right, I am. Whether you want to torture me or kill me, do as you please.”
Daoist Black said with an extremely indifferent expression. If it was under normal circ.u.mstance, he would have to bow and greet Shangguan Sheng and Tiangang Yi upon seeing them, and express his awe. But now, he wouldn’t do that. These guys were here to kill him, so did he still have to be polite to his enemies?
“Killing you is very simple, but I’ll let you stay alive for a few more days. Who is Guo Shan?”
Shangguan Sheng asked with a sneer on his face. Shangguan Sheng had obviously found out about every single person who were close to Jiang Chen. In the Black Sect, Guo Shan was the one with the closest relations.h.i.+p with Jiang Chen, and Shangguan Sheng would definitely not let this guy off easily.
“I, your father am Guo Shan!”
Guo Shan’s att.i.tude was even more arrogant than Daoist Black’s. There were many was for a man to die, but if the death was because one was friends with Jiang Chen, Guo Shan would have nothing to complain about; he wouldn’t even furrow his brows.
“Keep these two in solitary confinement! We’ll wait for Jiang Chen to come here to rescue them.”
Tiangang Yi said in a cold manner.
Daoist Black and Guo Shan’s eyes lit up after hearing what he said. Judging from his words, it seemed like the reason they came here to imprison them was because they couldn’t find Jiang Chen, and their primary objective was to lure Jiang Chen out. Since that was the case, the Black Sect might still have hope, because Jiang Chen himself was a huge variable; an extremely frightening one! Jiang Chen’s enemies had never met good endings!
“Hahaha! The day Jiang Chen shows up is your final day spent alive!”
Daoist Black burst into laughter.
“You’re seeking death!”
Shangguan Sheng was startled for a moment, then he simply struck his palm against Daoist Black’s chest with tremendous force.
Daoist Black sustained a severe blow, causing a mouthful of blood to immediately burst out from his mouth. His entire body was shaking as if he was about to fall over at any moment. Guo Shan who stood on the side immediately moved forward and supported him with his arm.
“This is just a small punishment! Don’t talk so much trash in front of me; that Jiang Chen is nothing, if he dares show up; I’ll make sure he dies without a proper burial ground!”
Shangguan Sheng said in a mocking manner.
Daoist Black had suffered a bad injury. When he tried to say something else, Guo Shan immediately stopped him. There was a saying; a wise man knew better than to fight when the odds were against him. Since they were the hostages now, it would be better for them to just keep low. Although scolding these enemies would make them feel better; it just couldn’t change anything.
In less than an hour, the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan had gained complete control over the Black Sect. From the outer circle disciple to the Divine Core Sect Elders; every single one of them was imprisoned, while Daoist Black and Guo Shan were in solitary confinement.
Neither of the superpowers took anyone from the Black Sect seriously. They were treating these people as if they were slaves. If anyone dared disobey their instructions; they would give that person a round of beating, and if anyone dared fight back; they would kill that person on the spot, never showing any mercy.
This was doomsday in the eyes of all those from the Black Sect. Only that white-clothed youngster was capable of changing their ill fates.
At the same time!
Two Combat Soul warriors from the Shangguan Clan brought a group of men and arrived at the Yu family in the Yellowstone region. The entire Yu family was struck with the same fate as those from the Black Sect, and every single person in their family was imprisoned, including those ordinary servants.
The same thing happened to Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan’s family. All of them were put under the control of the Martial Saint Dynasty. In just a single night, a drastic change had occurred in the Qi Province. The supreme Black Sect had now become prisoners, and many people were dragged into this incident. The Imperial Emperor’s punishment was extremely ruthless; it simply dragged too many innocent people into this. At this moment, the land was filled with grief and sorrow, and the people of the Qi Province were in a state of anxiety.
Around noon on the second day, a large group of uninvited guests suddenly appeared on Mount Origin. The Seventh Emperor, Tenth Emperor, and Deputy Commander of the Golden Guards, Yuan Long; three Late Combat Soul warriors, as wells as dozens of Golden Guards were flying toward the Red City region.
They had actually deployed such a frightening force just to deal with the Jiang family and Yan family. This was a typical example of killing a chicken with the butcher’s knife. However, this ferocious force wasn’t really meant for the Jiang family or the Yan family, but for Jiang Chen.
“Yuan Long, bring thirty Golden Guards to the Red City and capture all the people of the Yan family! Bring them to the Fragrant Sky City and imprison them with the Jiang family!”
The Seventh Emperor told Yuan Long.
“Yes, Seventh Emperor.”
After Yuan Long received the order, he brought thirty Golden Guards with him and started flying toward the Red City. In the Seventh Emperor’s mind, there wasn’t any powerful families in this remote land. Therefore, it wasn’t necessary to imprison them separately.
“Seventh brother, let’s proceed to the Fragrant Sky City now. Once we’ve taken Jiang Chen’s hometown under our control, Jiang Chen won’t have ability to fight us!”
The Tenth Emperor said with a sinister smile on his face, as if he had already pictured Jiang Chen’s death.
