Chapter 457 – Reinforcements
“Hurry, kill that monster first!”
Someone shouted out loudly. Immediately, a couple of Late Combat Soul warriors turned around and charged toward the Ice Demon King. In the blink of an eye, they had surrounded the Ice Demon King.
The combined attack of six Late Combat Soul warriors instantly shattered the Ice Demon King. However, before these few men could celebrate, the immediately saw the Ice Demon King come back to life and appear on the other side of the battlefield. With great speed, it threw out two punches, killing two Combat Soul warriors. It was extremely fierce and brutal.
“d.a.m.n it, what kind of monster is this?”
One of the Late Combat Soul warriors nearly vomited blood. None of them had ever seen such a strange monster before. No matter how much they tried, it just couldn’t be killed. How were they going to deal with a monster like this?
“This monster has caused us huge damage! Although it’s only a Late Combat Soul monster, it’s still weaker when compared to us! However, it’s still a deadly threat to the others! We have to eliminate it completely!”
Someone said while gnas.h.i.+ng his teeth in anger.
“d.a.m.n it, let’s keep attacking it! I don’t believe it can revive itself infinitely!”
Another man said as he tightened his grip on his combat weapon and charged toward the Ice Demon King once more.
Devastating energy beams flew across the battlefield, and miserable screams could be heard from all parts. This place resembled a scene from h.e.l.l, as blood was spilled everywhere. Although the war had just started, both sides had started suffering casualties.
Big Yellow, Yan Chenyu, Han Yan and Wu Lang were the primary attack force. Big Yellow was taking on the Crown Prince by himself, and was locked in a difficult battle. Yan Chenyu, Han Yan and Wu Lang were each taking on three enemies. While they could fight without being at a disadvantage, they didn’t have an advantage either. After all, they were only Mid Combat Soul warriors. If they were at the same level, the Late Combat Soul realm as their enemies, perhaps they would be able to instantly kill them.
The Black Sect’s Combat Soul warriors were put in groups of five, and they were fighting in the formations laid down by Big Yellow. However, because these warriors came from all over the Eastern Continent, there wasn’t much connection between them, so they couldn’t synergize well. If not for the formations, perhaps the Black Sect would already have been defeated. Even so, the ones on the Black Sect’s side were heavily oppressed by their enemy.
In the sky, the Imperial Emperor and Wu Jiu were locked in a tight battle. After the Dao of War reached new heights, Wu Jiu’s combat strength had become extremely powerful. Compared to the Imperial Emperor who had broken through to the Combat King realm long ago, he was not any weaker.
Judging from how the Imperial Emperor and Wu Jiu were fighting, it would perhaps take them another three days and three nights in order for one of them to come out victorious.
On the other side, the battle between Jiang Chen and the Old Emperor was the most intense. The Old Emperor was a peak First Grade Combat King warrior with incredible abilities. He was basically suppressing Jiang Chen like a mountain. Since the beginning of the fight, Jiang Chen had been on the defensive. However, the Old Emperor didn’t feel happy at all. For someone like to fight a Mid Combat Soul youth without being able to defeat him, it was incredibly disgraceful. A fierce storm was raging in the Old Emperor’s mind, as he couldn’t believe that a peerless genius like this could exist in the Eastern Continent.
With just a Mid Combat Soul cultivation, Jiang Chen was able to fight a First Grade Combat King. Throughout the history of the entire Eastern Continent, no one like him had even existed before. In the past, the Old Emperor was considered a rare genius. However, when comparing his past self with Jiang Chen, the gap was not small.
“That useless fool, how did he run the empire?! Not only did he not maintain a good relations.h.i.+p with this genius, he actually made him our enemy! What a fool!”
While fighting Jiang Chen, the Old Emperor repeatedly scolded the Imperial Emperor inwardly.
“But since he has become our enemy, I’ll have to kill him as soon as possible; not allow him any more room to grow! If not, the consequences will be devastating! If this guy breaks through to the Late Combat Soul realm, even I won’t be his match.”
The Old Emperor thought to himself. Since the relations.h.i.+p between them and Jiang Chen could no longer be fixed, he would have to kill this genius as soon as possible. If not, the Martial Saint Dynasty would really be destroyed by this young man one day.
Currently, it was just like when he fought the Third Emperor and the others. Jiang Chen had fallen into a unique state. Under the Old Emperor’s pressure, the Dragon Transformation skill had started circulating at high speed, and it was approaching the brink of evolution. With such stimulation, new Dragon Marks had started forming in Jiang Chen’s body, and with every new Dragon Mark formed, Jiang Chen’s combat strength would increase even further. Conversely, the Old Emperor was constantly using up his energy, and if the situation kept going like this, Jiang Chen would naturally have no need to fear the Old Emperor.
Jiang Chen did worry about something; the battlefield below him. For now, the fight between Wu Jiu and the Imperial Emperor wouldn’t have any problems, and the battle between him and the Old Emperor would take some time. If the ones below didn’t get any help, they would soon be defeated.
The battlefield below was rumbling, and a few miserable screams could be heard. Those screams came from a formation formed by five men. Their team had been broken up by their enemies, causing them to be flooded by the enemies. Three of them were instantly killed, while the remaining two were rescued by the Ice Demon King.
“d.a.m.n it, this monster!”
A few Late Combat Soul warriors were still chasing after the Ice Demon King, trying their best to kill it. However, they had lost count of how many times they had killed the Ice Demon King to no avail. Not only did they not managed to kill it, they hadn’t even managed to prevent it from wreaking havoc on the battlefield, causing them huge losses.
In fact, the Ice Demon King had its own intellect. It knew that the best way to contribute to this battle was like this. With its cultivation base, if it went ahead and fought with those Late Combat Soul warriors, it would undoubtedly be something incredibly stupid. However, it was impossible for the Ice Demon King alone to change the overall situation.
Hence, the Ice Demon King decided to fight guerilla style; taking advantage of its immortal body to slaughter those below the Late Combat Soul realm, constantly reducing the overall combat strength of the enemy.
Another formation was destroyed by the warriors from the Martial Saint Dynasty, and the miserable screams emerging from those on the Black Sect’s side were becoming more intense. Many people started feeling regret; if they had known that the Martial Saint Dynasty had such a powerful force, they never would have come here to partic.i.p.ate in this war.
The Black Sect obviously didn’t have an advantage in this current situation unless Jiang Chen could kill the Old Emperor in a very short amount of time, or Wu Jiu could kill the Imperial Emperor. However, judging from their situation, it was clearly impossible. Let alone killing the Old Emperor, Jiang Chen was still in a disadvantageous position.
“We’re done, we’re all finished this time!”
“Haha… kill them all for me! Ignore that monster, just go and kill the other men!”
The Crown Prince who was fighting with Big Yellow joyfully laughed out. At the same time, he asked those Late Combat Soul warriors to stop worrying about the Ice Demon King, as he already knew that it was basically immortal. Many days ago, if not for this monster, he never would have reached such a miserable state.
Right at this moment, a sudden change occurred. An oppressive sound echoed out from a distance, and soon after, nearly twenty figures were seen flying toward the battlefield. There were two people in the lead; one man and one girl. The man had a tall and muscular body; a very imposing appearance, and he was carrying a long and big blue ruler. The girl was wearing a skintight black dress, giving her a beautiful and seductive look. The girl was carrying a zither in her hand, and she was also portraying a very imposing appearance.
“Haha… The Nangong family is here to help!”
Before the people arrived on the battlefield, a loud laughter sounded out. The one who just spoke was none other than Nangong Wentian! After mastering the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill, he had advanced at a tremendous pace. He was now a Mid Combat Soul warrior!
Many people were surprised upon seeing these twenty people who had suddenly appeared, as even an idiot could tell how strong this reinforcement was. Han Yan and Big Yellow were even more excited. Aside from them, only a few others here knew Nangong Wentian.
“Brother Nan, you’ve finally come back!”
Han Yan said out loud while fighting three Late Combat Soul warriors by himself.
Nangong Wentian cried out. He was the first amongst the ones who just appeared to attack. At the same time, all those mighty warriors from the Nangong family began attacking with full force. Meanwhile, Wu Ningzhu didn’t move. Her eyes were focused on Jiang Chen, who was currently fighting the Old Emperor. She couldn’t help but feel infatuated as she looked at Jiang Chen with her beautiful eyes.
“This guy has become even stronger. He is now capable of fighting a Combat King warrior.”
Wu Ningzhu shook her head. She didn’t wear her veil today, so her peerless beauty was revealed to everyone.
When Yan Chenyu who was fighting in the distance saw Wu Ningzhu, she was instantly shocked by her beauty. The way Wu Ningzhu stared at Jiang Chen made Yan Chenyu feel a bit uncomfortable. As a girl herself, Yan Chenyu could understand the meaning hidden in Wu Ningzhu’s eyes.
“Miss Wu, after traveling so far from the Southern Continent, are you just going to stand there and watch us fight?”
Jiang Chen turned to Wu Ningzhu and teased. Actually, he had not expected the Nangong family to suddenly appear to help him, and even WU Ningzhu was here. This caused Jiang Chen to breath out a sigh of relief. Nangong Wentian was not the only person who came from the Nangong family, even Nangong Yunfan and Tu Yi was here. Jiang Chen even more amazed to see Nangong Yunzheng and his son. Jiang Chen was no idiot, he understood that the internal affairs of the Nangong family must have been fully resolved. Nangong Yunfan and Nangong Yunzheng must have reconciled. For the Nangong family, this was indeed great news.
The reinforcements were incredibly strong; all of them were mighty warriors, and Wu Ningzhu was even more frightening. Jiang Chen understood Wu Ningzhu’s abilities clearly. With her and the Nangong family’s help, the situation was most likely going to change.
