Chapter 481 – 19,000 Dragon Marks
It was a majestic illusionary image of a Dragon Horse. Its body was about 3 meters tall, and it was fully covered with golden scales, and it had four hooves that shone in a dazzling golden light. There was a sharp dragon horn on top of its head, and it was covered with Dragon Marks.
This was a true Divine Beast! The first one to appear in this realm for a very long time.
A loud roar sounded out from the illusionary Dragon Horse. It was so loud that both Heaven and Earth shook. The loud noise immediately alerted everyone in the Nangong Family, including Daoist Profound River and the Great Elder who had yet to leave. They couldn’t help but look at the enormous golden beam in the sky with awe.
“Heavens, what kind of Divine Creature is that?! Is that the legendary Dragon Horse? It looks so majestic!”
“Looks, isn’t the source of that beam Big Yellow? Don’t tell me the original form of that dog isn’t a dog, but something divine?”
“This energy is really powerful, and it’s still rising! Looks like he’s going to break through to the Demon King realm! I never thought I’d have the chance to witness the birth of a Demon King, this is truly an honor!”
Everyone were shaken by this incredible event. None of these people had ever seen such a majestic creature before, and some had never even heard about it.
“After spending an entire month, this d.a.m.n dog is finally going to break through to the Demon King realm! He better succeed, if not, I will definitely smash his head in for wasting my time for an entire month!”
A bright smile emerged on Jiang Chen’s face. As expected, Big Yellow had finally broken through to the First Grade Demon King realm. However, after Big Yellow reached the First Grade Demon King realm, even if Jiang Chen wanted to smash his head, it would be incredibly difficult. After a Dragon Horse became a Demon King, it would possess incredible strength, which would allow him to easily defeat a Second Grade Demon King.
Of course, Jiang Chen still had a trick up his sleeve, as he had yet to absorb Lord Zhanlang’s demon soul. Once he returned to the Eastern Continent, he would absorb it and become much stronger.
Big Yellow’s energy kept rising as he sent forth golden wave after wave.
“d.a.m.n it, this dog is indeed a mystical Dragon Horse! However, there is one thing that puzzles me… why does he look like a dog?”
Han Yan gloomily said. Actually, it wasn’t just him, Jiang Chen also couldn’t understand this. Even if a Dragon Horse wanted to lower his own status, he just shouldn’t choose the image of a dog…
“Big Yellow has absorbed Lord Baoju’s demon soul and blood essence, helping him greatly while breaking through to the Demon King realm. Now, Brother Yan and I have been ditched. Looks like I’ll have to put more effort into cultivation.”
Nangong Wentian let out a long sigh. Now that Big Yellow had reached the Demon King realm, he suddenly felt a tremendous pressure.
With a solemn expression, Han Yan nodded his head in agreement. Jiang Chen and Big Yellow had now progressed far beyond them, and if they didn’t put in more effort, the gap between them would only become bigger and bigger.
Big Yellow’s energy finally stopped at the First Grade Demon King realm, luckily. If he had reached the Second Grade Demon King realm in one go, even Jiang Chen would feel extremely depressed.
Not long after that, with his mouth wide open and tongue hanging out, Big Yellow came to Jiang Chen and Han Yan while wagging his tail. The first thing he said was, “Buddy, let’s fight one on one, see who is stronger!”
Jiang Chen nearly coughed out blood. After wasting an entire month waiting for this b.a.s.t.a.r.d, the first thing this d.a.m.n dog did after breaking through was challenge him. This made Jiang Chen feel sad; he suddenly felt that this was a loveless world.
“Let’s do it buddy! This master dog will be very careful, and I won’t make you feel any pain!”
Big Yellow pride fully said. After becoming a First Grade Demon King, his confidence had skyrocketed. He now felt as if he was the strongest existence underneath the heavens, and that only Jiang Chen who was also number one underneath the heavens could fight him.
"d.a.m.n you, looks like your skin has become itchy again!"
Clenching his teeth tightly, Jiang Chen rolled up his sleeves and flew into the sky. Without saying anything else, he immediately threw a punch toward Big Yellow. He knew that this dog had thick skin and strong muscles, and especially his head; nothing seemed to be harder than it. Thus, he didn’t show any mercy when attacking.
Seeing this, Big Yellow joyfully laughed out as he rammed his head into Jiang Chen’s fist.
A loud explosive sound echoed throughout the entire sky, and the s.p.a.ce was ripped apart by this tremendous force.
Bam, bam, bam...
“f.u.c.k, this d.a.m.n dog’s head is still so tough!”
“d.a.m.n it! Buddy, don’t hit this master dog’s handsome face!”
"Ouch! How dare you bite my a.s.s!"
Under the eyes of countless people, the human and dog duo fought in the sky above the Nangong Family. The fight lasted for half an hour, and no clear winner could be determined. Of course, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow only fought each other with fleshly strength. Jiang Chen never unleashed any combat skills, and Big Yellow didn’t use any of his innate abilities. They were after all having a friendly match, and it was impossible for them two of them to engage in a real battle. Furthermore, if they fought for real, with their strength, the entire Nangong Family would instantly be turned upside down.
On the same day, Jiang Chen didn't want to delay any longer and prepared to leave for the Eastern Continent.
Outside of the Nangong Family, Jiang Chen, Han Yan, Nangong Wentian and Big Yellow were hovering in the sky. Nangong Wentian had informed his family that he would follow Jiang Chen to the Divine Continent. With their talent, they would definitely have a bright future in the Divine Continent.
Nangong Yunfan had no objections regarding his son’s decision. As a father, of course he felt happy that his son was aiming for something bigger. He also trusted Jiang Chen.
"Dad, we're leaving now."
Nangong Wentian bowed toward Nangong Yunfan, then he left together with Jiang Chen.
After flying for a short distance, a figure suddenly chased up from another direction. She was Wu Ningzhu.
"Elder Sister Ning, I thought you had returned to the Dancing Sun City?"
Jiang Chen smiled upon seeing Wu Ningzhu. The two men and dog quickly distance themselves and gave s.p.a.ce for these two people, while Nangong Wentian started nagging about Jiang Chen’s good fortune.
“I’ve told my dad I’m going to the Divine Continent with you.”
Wu Ningzhu said
Without giving it any thoughts, Jiang Chen agreed. He knew what Wu Ningzhu’s goals were, so he had no reason to stop her. One way or another, Wu Ningzhu would travel to the Divine Continent, and not only that, Jiang Chen would also help her complete her goal.
Only Jiang Chen knew how powerful the family Wu Ningzhu was going to face was. It was the frightening Gu Family, and its mightiness was not something Wu Ningzhu could imagine. If Wu Ningzhu wanted to accomplish her goal by herself, perhaps that would be more difficult than climbing the heavens.
Wu Ningzhu was startled by the quick reply, then a joyful expression emerged. She said,” Little Chen, are you going to help me?”
Wu Ningzhu eagerly looked at Jiang Chen’s face, a strong desire apparent in her eyes. She needed a reason to follow this man.
"Yes, I'll help you."
Jiang Chen nodded his head. He hadn’t told Wu Ningzhu anything about the Gu Family, as he didn’t want to put too much pressure on her. After all, Wu Ningzhu was only a Combat Soul warrior.
The three men and a dog group became four humans and a dog. Along their way, Jiang Chen told them many things about the Divine Continent. Of course, he only told them about the rough territory of the Divine Continent, and didn’t touch on any people. If not, it would be really hard for him to explain why he knew those people. Also, those people he knew a hundred years ago, perhaps the Divine Continent was no longer the same as he once knew. Those Great Saints he knew might already have ascended to the Realm of Immortals.
With their current speed, it didn’t require them half a month to travel to the Eastern Continent, the time was shortened by half. Along their way, Jiang Chen absorbed Lord Zhanlang’s demon soul. As expected, it was extremely difficult for him to break through to the Combat King realm, and it was more difficult to form new Dragon Marks, as each new Dragon Mark require more energy than the previous.
Jiang Chen now had a total of 19,000 Dragon Marks in his body, and he was really close to the Combat King realm. According to Jiang Chen’s estimation, it would only take him another Second Grade Demon King’s demon soul to break through to the Combat King realm. For him, what he needed was energy, as there were no bottlenecks he needed to break through. In order to break through to the Combat King realm, one would need to comprehend Spatial Laws, but as Jiang Chen was already familiar with that, there was no need to learn it again.
Sensing that Jiang Chen’s aura had become stronger, Big Yellow couldn’t help but murmur, “What an abnormal monster.”
"What? Big Yellow, do you want to fight with me again?"
Jiang Chen said with a challenging tone.
“Get lost, this master dog is not interested!”
Big Yellow was no idiot, he knew he couldn’t find any advantages if he fought Jiang Chen now.
A few days later, Jiang Chen and the group returned to the Black Sect. The situation in the Eastern Continent was now peaceful, and Wu Jiu had become the new Emperor of the Martial Dynasty.
The overall strength of the Black Sect wasn’t that powerful, but it was an existence that no one in the Eastern Continent dared to offend. Wu Jiu had planned on positioning the Black Sect as the number one sect of the Eastern Continent, making it the symbol of all sects in the continent.
When Han Yan and Nangong Wentian returned, they both immediately went to cultivation. As for Jiang Chen, the day after he returned, he brought Yan Chenyu to the Island of Ice.
