Chapter 460 – Killing a Combat King
The Old Emperor sensed an extremely dangerous aura, instantly sending a chill down his spine. However, he was still a peak First Grade Combat King, so his reaction speed was naturally incredible. Hence, he was able to dodge to his side.
However, although the Old Emperor was quick to respond, Jiang Chen’s sword was much faster. He managed to prevent the sword from hitting his head, but one of his arms was sliced off instead, causing blood to spray out like a fountain. He stumbled in mid-air, and nearly fell down. Losing one arm had greatly affected his combat strength.
The Imperial Emperor who was fighting fiercely with Wu Jiu immediately cried out in shock. The Old Emperor was the most important person in today’s war, and if he was defeated, it meant that this war had come to an end. Jiang Chen was an incredibly frightening man, as he was able to defeat the Old Emperor with just a mere Mid Combat Soul cultivation base, something truly unbelievable. Since the Old Emperor had lost one of his arms, he was no longer Jiang Chen’s match. If the Old Emperor was killed by Jiang Chen today, the consequences today would be beyond the Imperial Emperor’s imagination.
“d.a.m.n it, this is so awesome!”
“This Jiang Chen is going to defy the heavens! I placed my bet correctly this time, even the Old Emperor is not his match! I think the Martial Saint Dynasty is going to be destroyed by Jiang Chen, and if we follow the Black Sect, good days will come!”
“This is the most heaven defying existence I have ever seen! Jiang Chen is the miracle of the Eastern Continent! However, the Old Emperor is still a Combat King warrior. Although he has lost one arm, he can still escape from this place. I wonder if Jiang Chen has the ability to completely kill him.”
All the people on the Black Sect’s side were feeling really excited. There was no doubt that Jiang Chen’s aggressiveness had calmed their minds, especially those who were regretting helping Jiang Chen; they felt really lucky right now, as Jiang Chen was just a Mid Combat Soul warrior, but was still able to defeat a First Grade Combat King warrior. With his potential, it was almost certain that he would soon break through to the Combat King realm, and no one could imagine how terrifying he would be upon breaking through to the Combat King realm.
After losing one of his arms, the Old Emperor was struck with great shock, and he was now completely enraged. His hatred toward Jiang Chen had reached a new peak, and he felt a strong desire to rip Jiang Chen into a thousand pieces. However, he had lost that opportunity.
“Old fool, you can die now.”
Jiang Chen continued attacking with incredible speed, not allowing the Old Emperor any time to respond. Once again, he casually swung his Heavenly Saint Sword, unleas.h.i.+ng countless dazzling sword beams. The beams waved into a gigantic net that then descended toward the Old Emperor.
The attack came too quickly, and it caused the Old Emperor’s nerves to tense up. Without any hesitation, he raised the sword in his hand and swung it toward the Heavenly Saint Sword.
The collision of these two weapons sent sparks flying all over the place. After losing an arm, the Old Emperor’s combat strength was halved, so he was no longer a match for Jiang Chen who fought as fiercely as tigers and wolves, let alone Jiang Chen who was attacking with the Heavenly Saint Sword.
A miserable scream sounded out from the Old Emperor’s mouth. His sword was knocked out of his hand and was taken away by Jiang Chen. Numerous wounds appeared on the Old Emperor’s body after being hit by Jiang Chen’s attack. Blood was constantly dripping down, and his spirit had already reached the bottom.
Without wasting any time, Jiang Chen once again attacked the Old Emperor in an oppressive manner.
“Want to kill me? Fat chance!”
The Old Emperor gritted his teeth tightly as he spoke. Although he was no longer a match for Jiang Chen, it was still easy for him to run away because of his Combat King cultivation base. He had mastered the Spatial Force, allowing him to enter a different dimension whenever he wanted and escape. The Combat Soul warriors who couldn’t use Spatial Force couldn’t compare with him.
Like a phantom, the Old Emperor had simply disappeared in the blink of an eye.
“Want to escape in front of my eyes? That’s impossible.”
Jiang Chen said in a cold manner. He predicted that the Old Emperor would use this method, and he had prepared for it. It was any other ordinary Combat Soul warrior, even if they could defeat a Combat King warrior, it would be impossible to kill him. Once a man reached the Combat King realm, he would comprehend the Spatial Force, allowing him to easily travel across s.p.a.ce and dimensions, making it very difficult to kill him. If a Combat King warrior wanted to run away, it would be extremely difficult to stop him.
But unfortunately, the Old Emperor had encountered Jiang Chen, a true freak. As the reincarnation of the greatest Saint underneath the heavens, Jiang Chen knew all kinds of powerful tricks. Ordinary people had no way of comparing with him.
“Come out now!”
Jiang Chen fiercely roared out as he thrust his Heavenly Saint Sword like a poisonous snake forward, piercing the air in front of him. It was an incredibly fast and powerful strike, and penetrated right into a different dimension. Following a ‘puchi’ sound was a miserable scream.
Jiang Chen shook his sword and pulled it out from the different dimension together with the Old Emperor. It was a frightening scene, and the Old Emperor’s entire body was trembling. Jiang Chen’s sword had pierced through his head all the way through. Fresh and warm blood was dripping down from the Heavenly Saint Sword.
It was a deadly strike, but the Old Emperor was still alive, as Combat King warriors possessed incredible life force. The dying Old Emperor stared straight into Jiang Chen’s eyes and said with a vague voice, “No, impossible, this can’t be possible… you haven’t comprehended Spatial Force, how could you accurately find my position?”
The Old Emperor was struck with great shock. What happened had gone beyond his knowledge and imagination. He never thought it would be possible for a First Grade Combat King warrior to die by the hands of a young Combat Soul warrior, and he never thought it would be possible for him to fail to escape even with the ability of a Combat King warrior.
The Old Emperor sensed his life force gradually fading away with a face full of despair.
“Oh heavens, he really killed the Old Emperor!”
“How could this happen?! Is this guy a monster?! Even the Old Emperor was killed by him! We’re finished, we’re all finished!”
“Perhaps the Imperial Emperor is going to face the same fate… We’re all going to die today!”
The Combat Soul warriors of the Martial Saint Dynasty were well on their way to complete defeat. And now, after witnessing Jiang Chen kill the Old Emperor, their spirit had completely collapse. None of them had any courage to fight anymore.
“This is awesome, he has killed a Combat King warrior!”
“The birth of a peerless monster! He has created a miracle by killing a Combat King with just a Combat Soul cultivation base! The Eastern Continent’s history will definitely focus on today’s war!”
“Jiang Chen’s great name will be spoken of for generations, he will be the idol for countless younger generations!”
Contrary to the people of the Martial Saint Dynasty, the ones on the Black Sect’s side were filled with great joy. In a major scale war like this, the high-end combat force was the key to their victory. Basically, after Jiang Chen killed the Old Emperor, they had basically won.
Furthermore, the Old Emperor’s death signified one thing; the Imperial Emperor was going to face a similar fate. The Imperial Emperor was weaker than the Old Emperor, and since Jiang Chen was able to kill the Old Emperor, killing the Imperial Emperor would be a piece of cake, let alone the fact that he also had Wu Jiu to help him.
“You can die in peace now.”
Jiang Chen shook his arm, unleas.h.i.+ng an energy wave from the Heavenly Saint Sword that shattered the Old Emperor’s head, killing him on the spot. Although Jiang Chen just killed a Combat King warrior, the previous Imperial Emperor, he showed no emotions while doing so, as if he had just killed an ordinary man.
In fact, this Old Emperor was no different from an ordinary man in Jiang Chen’s mind.
On the other side, the Imperial Emperor who witnessed this cried out in shock, and blood almost burst out from his eyes. He couldn’t accept this result, it was something he hadn’t thought to be possible. He came here today in high spirit, but he was greeted with such a miserable ending. First, it was the Crown Prince, then the Old Emperor. He had underestimated Jiang Chen, and if he knew that this would happen, he would have called upon the Old Great Emperor, then he would be able to rip Jiang Chen into a thousand pieces.
“Jiang Chen, I’ll definitely have you killed the next time!”
The Imperial Emperor shouted toward Jiang Chen. After that, he tore a crack in the air with his bare hands and stepped into a different s.p.a.ce. The Imperial Emperor was a wise man, he knew they had been completely defeated today, as even the Old Emperor had died. If he kept fight, he would face the same fate. Hench, the Imperial Emperor chose to run for his life.
“Since you’re already here, you might as well stay. Brother Jiu, stop him!”
Jiang Chen shouted. He had killed the Old Emperor, and there was no way he would let the Imperial Emperor escape. Sparing the life of a dangerous man like this would be disastrous.
Jiang Chen’s reminder was needless, as Wu Jiu had already move. Right when the Imperial Emperor stepped into the different s.p.a.ce, Wu Jiu followed after him. Soon after, a rumbling sound could be heard in mid-air, even though there was nothing there. The two men were currently fighting in another dimension.
Jiang Chen unleashed his aura, and once again forcefully pierced through the s.p.a.ce in front of him. With the Great Soul Derivation skill, he was able to pinpoint the Imperial Emperor’s exact position and injure him. A moment before this, the Old Emperor was killed with the help of this.
The air was violently trembling as Jiang Chen’s sword penetrated straight into the other dimension. In the following moment, two figures suddenly emerged in mid-air. The Imperial Emperor’s body was swaying, and he could barely stand. A b.l.o.o.d.y hole was visible on his chest, and blood was constantly dripping down. This injury was clearly caused by Jiang Chen.
“Imperial Emperor, there is no way you can run away today.”
Jiang Chen stood in front of the Imperial Emperor and said. After forming another 2,500 Dragon Marks, Jiang Chen’s combat strength had far exceeded the Imperial Emperor’s, and with the help of Wu Jiu, the Imperial Emperor simply had no way of escaping.
“Haha, Jiang Chen, I’ve truly underestimated you; I never thought you could grow so quickly. I just hate the fact that I didn’t kill you earlier, leading me to this miserable ending.”
The Imperial Emperor started laughing. He felt deeply grieved. When he met Jiang Chen for the first time in the Martial Saint Palace, Jiang Chen was just a kid who had yet to reach the Combat Soul realm. In the Imperial Emperor’s eyes, Jiang Chen was an ant whom he could easily crush. If he had killed Jiang Chen at that time, today’s disaster would never have happened.
Too bad, there were no pills that could cure one’s regrets.
“Jiang Chen, I suggest you stop right now. If you kill me today, you won’t be able to deal with the consequences. Wu Jiu should know this. There is another formidable existence in the Martial Saint Dynasty, the Old Great Emperor. He is a Second Grade Combat King warrior, and he’s not someone you are capable of dealing with.”
The Imperial Emperor threatened with another mammoth of the Martial Saint Dynasty.
Little to his knowledge, a threat like this was useless in front of Jiang Chen, as Jiang Chen already knew about that Second Grade Combat King warrior.
