Chapter 484 – Spatial Tunnel’s Fracture
Early in the morning, outside of the Black Sect, a large group of people had gathered at the scene, and were divided into two sides. On one side were four humans and a dog, while the other side had the strongest warriors of the Eastern Continent.
These five were Jiang Chen, Wu Ningzhu, Han Yan, Nangong Wentian, and Big Yellow. Today was the day of their departure, and the group was about to travel to the heart of the Saint Origin Realm, the Divine Continent! No one knew when they would return.
On the opposite side was Wu Jiu and Wu Lang, who stood side by side with Jiang Zhenhai and Yan Zhanyun. Behind them were the upper echelons of the Black Sect and Martial Dynasty. All of these people were staring at Jiang Chen with pa.s.sionate eyes.
The strongest men of the Eastern Continent had gathered here; all belonging to the upper echelon were present. It was an honor for them to bid their farewells to Jiang Chen.
"Brother, be careful when you reach the Divine Continent."
Wu Jiu took a step forward and patted Jiang Chen on the shoulder. He had known for a very long time that Jiang Chen was a dragon hiding in deep water. In no way could the Eastern Continent hold him back. A man like this could only fly higher in the vast sky.
“Brother Jiu, I’ll leave everything here to you. I hope you can look after the Jiang Family and Black Sect.”
Jiang Chen said in a serious manner. He didn’t want anything bad to happen to the Jiang Family. Although no one in the Eastern Continent had the guts to touch the Jiang Family now, he still wanted to remind Wu Jiu.
“Brother, rest a.s.sured. I promise with my life that in the entire Eastern Continent, your father’s status will be the highest. Even when he comes to the Martial Dynasty will he receive the highest degree of welcome.”
Wu Jiu promised. This was a promise made by a Combat King, an Emperor! Underneath the heavens, only Jiang Chen could make Wu Jiu promise him something.
At this moment, Guo Shan also walked out from the crowd. With a smile on his face, he said, “Brother, I feel like I’m dreaming right now. I hope that when we next time meet, your name will have been heard by the entire Saint Origin realm.”
A bright smile covered Guo Shan’s face. He was indeed very happy. Remembering the first time he had met with Jiang Chen, it felt just like a dream. He never thought that the little outer circle disciple would grow so quickly, and change the entire power structure of the Eastern Continent in such a short amount of time.
Thinking back, from when Jiang Chen defeated Nanbei Chao, annihilated the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect, and lastly, the Martial Saint Dynasty; the time had pa.s.sed by quickly. And, ever since Jiang Chen first arrived in the Qi Province, the Eastern Continent had been in a constant turmoil.
He was simply a chaotic devil. It wasn’t difficult to imagine that once Jiang Chen arrived at the Divine Continent, a tremendous storm would rise. A man like him, no matter where he went, his name would be heard by many.
“Brother, you better brew a lot of wine! When I come back, I want to drink plenty!”
Jiang Chen said with a smile on his face.
“Don’t worry. Although my cultivation and alchemy skills are nowhere near you leave, you can’t beat me when it comes to brewing wine! Of course, your older brother I don’t have the ability to brew it with more Energy Spring Water.”
Guo Shan said. He suddenly remembered the time when Jiang Chen drank Energy Spring Water like it was wine. That made him frustrated.
“Big Bro Jiang, after you leave, it’ll be a long time before we can meet again.”
Yu Zihan said with a sigh.
“Zihan, put more effort into your cultivation. I’ll be waiting for you in the Divine Continent.”
Jiang Chen patted Yu Zihan on the shoulder. Yu Zihan was now an Early Combat Soul realm, and it would be hard for him to find a match in the younger generation. However, when compared to Jiang Chen and the others, he was still far behind.
"Don't worry! Sooner or later, I will travel to Divine Continent as well!"
Yu Zihan said with a serious question. Jiang Chen had let him know that there was a vast world out there, and he had prepared himself. Once Jiang Chen left, he would pour all his effort into cultivation, fighting to improve his cultivation as quickly as possible.
After all the talking had come to an end, the sun had already risen. The last man to say farewell was Jiang Zhenhai.
Jiang Chen bowed deeply toward Jiang Zhenhai, "Dad, take care."
“Well, go on. Don’t worry too much about this place once you’re away.”
After he said that, Jiang Zhenhai turned around, causing his back to face Jiang Chen. The people in front of Jiang Zhenhai could clearly see tears in his eyes, causing them to feel emotional as well. Jiang Chen was everything in this old man’s heart, and having to depart like this naturally didn’t feel good for the old man.
Jiang Chen didn’t say anything. He slightly lifted his robe, then he slowly kneeled down and kowtowed three times. After that, he flew into the sky and left, not turning his head back.
There would always be sad moments in one’s life, and departure was amongst those. Jiang Chen didn’t want to be too sad, so he determinedly left.
Wu Ningzhu and the others quickly followed after him. They knew Jiang Chen’s heart was heavy at the moment, so no one said anything.
Without talking along the way, the group quickly flew to the depths of the ocean. Jiang Chen once again took out the bronze plate.
“Once we get to the Divine Continent, this thing will no longer be useful.”
Jiang Chen stared at the bronze plate in his hand. Although it was the key to the Island of Ice, he had to find the exact location of the island first. Hence, when he arrived at the Divine Continent, this bronze plate would basically be useless.
Jiang Chen threw the bronze plate into the sky. Then, an illusionary doorway appeared in front of the group. Without hesitating, the group walked straight into it.
After a bright flash of light, the group reappeared on top of the black altar and stood right beside the gigantic Teleportation Formation.
"We're leaving soon, are you guys ready?"
Jiang Chen turned to Wu Ningzhu and the others and asked.
"We’ve been ready for a long time."
Han Yan resolutely nodded his head. A look of excitement leaked out from both Han Yan and Nangong Wentian’s eyes, as they could hardly suppress the excitement they were currently feeling.
Wu Ningzhu was even more excited than these two men, as her dream and vow was related to the Divine Continent, and she had waited for this day for ten years.
Bug Yellow’s big tail was wagging back and forth, and his eyes shone brightly. It wasn’t difficult to tell how excited this dog was. Perhaps he couldn’t wait to wreak havoc in the Divine Continent.
In fact, the most excited person was Jiang Chen. He was finally going to return to the world that once belonged to him. When thinking about everything that happened in the past, he too was unable to suppress his excitement.
With the bronze plate in hand, he pushed it into the slot located on the Teleportation Formation.
In an instant, the gigantic Teleportation Formation started revolving, sending forth numerous dazzling lights. There were a few illuminating dots above the formation, and the one the furthest back from them, and also the biggest dot, was their destination; the Divine Continent.
“Do you see that? That is the Divine Continent; our destination.”
Jiang Chen pointed his finger at the fist-sized dot. Just from the size of this dot one could easily tell how gigantic the Divine Continent was. It was at least a hundred times biggest than the Eastern Continent, definitely enough to make one’s scalp go numb.
“Divine Continent; I, Wu Ningzhu am coming. Mom, how are you now? Ning’er has to see you no matter what.”
Wu Ningzhu was looking forward to that moment as she tried suppressing her inner excitement.
Jiang Chen touched the biggest dot. Then, in an instant, a spatial tunnel was revealed to them. The group felt a powerful suction force, and were pulled into the spatial tunnel.
Variegated spatial turbulences like shooting stars flashed by in front of the group, dazzling them.
“So this is what the other side of our dimension looks like.”
Nangong Wentian eyes ran around curiously.
Meanwhile, Han Yan stretched out his arm and tried touching the spatial barrier.
The spatial tunnel’s barrier made an explosive noise, and a hole appeared where Han Yan had touched, causing spatial tornados to shoot into where they were. Everyone’s bodies swayed violently, and they nearly fell down.
“The altar’s Teleportation Formation is quite old, and the Divine Continent is located far away, so the spatial tunnel isn’t stable. We have to restrain our auras and energy, and simply not move around. If not, once the spatial tunnel cracks, we’ll be thrown into the constantly moving spatial turbulence and die.”
Jiang Chen quickly reminded.
Hearing what he said, cold sweat immediately burst out from both Han Yan and Nangong Wentian’s forehead. This was truly frightening! If they were dragged into the spatial turbulence, even if they could survive, it would be impossible for them to find an exit, and they would be trapped in here forever.
“Little Chen, according to our speed, how long will it take us to reach the Divine Continent?”
Wu Ningzhu asked.
"Approximately one day."
Jiang Chen said.
"It takes that long?"
Han Yan was startled for a moment.
“What do you think? If not for this Teleportation Formation, it would take us at least three months of flying, at best.”
Jiang Chen said.
One day quickly pa.s.sed. They had yet to reach the end of the spatial tunnel. However, a bright dot suddenly appeared in front of them, and the spatial tunnel began violently shaking.
Jiang Chen’s expression instantly became gloomy. That bright dot wasn’t the end of the spatial tunnel, but a fracture.
“What's going on?"
Han Yan was shocked by what he saw.
“Everyone, be careful. The spatial tunnel will become unstable as we approach it. It’s a fracture in the tunnel.”
Jiang Chen said.
The group didn’t dare move their bodies. When they neared the fracture, violent waves of air blew out, making it impossible for the group to keep still.
When the group was pa.s.sing the fracture, a tremendous suctions force suddenly burst out from it and fell onto Nangong Wentian’s body.
Nangong Wentian cried out in shock. He couldn’t control his body, and was nearly sucked into it.
Without any hesitation, Jiang Chen quickly grabbed onto Nangong Wentian’s arm. Big Yellow also pushed his head against Nangong Wentian’s waste. One man and one dog were working together to forcefully pull him back into the tunnel.
However, luck wasn’t with Jiang Chen and Big Yellow, as both of them were pulled into the fracture at the same time and disappeared without a trace.
