Chapter 496 – Pirate
Shocked and terrified, the Demon King stared at this young man in white. Sensing that his Qi Sea was being controlled, and feeling the life force within his body depleting, aside from shock, his mind was reeling with fear; the fear of death. Before he struck just now, he had never expected that this young man, who he had never met before, could be so incredibly strong. With just a single strike, he, a First Grade Demon King had lost his life to this young man, and there was no way he could fight back.
A faint smile emerged on Jiang Chen’s lips. With one pull, he retrieved everything stored within the Demon King’s Qi Sea storage s.p.a.ce. As it wasn’t a good time to check it out, Jiang Chen immediately put it all into his own storage ring. Although he had the ability to kill Combat Kings and Demon Kings, he still wasn’t a Combat King, and he had yet to form his own storage s.p.a.ce within his Qi Sea, so he still had to use a storage ring.
Jiang Chen didn’t check how many treasures he had just looted, but he guessed that a Demon King should have quite an amount of good belongings. A huge amount of Earth Restoration Pills, and probably a handful of Heavenly Restoration Pills. Usually, it was rare for a Combat King and Demon King to have Heavenly Restoration Pills, but this wasn’t the case for these Pirate Lords. They made their living robbing others, bringing them a tremendous fortune. However, it all belonged to Jiang Chen now.
“Don’t blame me, you’re the one who tried to kill me first. So, it’s entirely reasonable that I kill you.”
Jiang Chen said in a seemingly regretful manner. He was comforting the Demon King before killing him. However, it only served to p.i.s.s the Demon King off. After hearing Jiang Chen’s words, he simply threw up a mouthful of blood.
Not delaying any further, Jiang Chen destroyed the Demon King’s head with one punch. Then, he took out a bright demon soul from the destroyed skull.
From start to finish, this Demon King had never had the chance to transform back into his original form, and he was no dead. Of course, as the gap between their strength was too tremendous, even if he was allowed to transform back into his original form and unleas.h.i.+ng his strongest attack, the ending would still be the same.
What happened instantly brought a tremendous storm to the crowd. The men who were fighting had temporarily stopped, including the Heavenhawk Island Master. Everyone were staring at this man and dog duo with tremendous shock. Li Hao and his group, who previously had an argument with Tan Lang were all struck dumb, and their mouths were wide open in shock.
“That young man is the helper invited by Tan Lang. I never expected him to be such a frightening warrior! And that dog is also a Demon King!”
“A famous Pirate Lord of the Chaotic Ocean can’t even withstand a single strike from him, and was killed in seconds! And this young man isn’t even a Combat King?! How can this be possible?! Who is this young man, and why have I never heard of him before!”
The geniuses of the Asura Palace were struck with extreme shock. Since the beginning, none of them had taken Tan Lang seriously, and they would never put a Combat Soul helper invited by Tan Lang in their eyes. However, who could have thought that this young man was actually such a frightening warrior.
“f.u.c.k! Why did such a strong guy suddenly appear? Two Pirate Lords were killed in such a short amount of time! I have never seen this young man before!”
“Did you guys see that? Before that young man killed the Pirate Lord, he took control of his Qi Sea and took away all the treasures stored within! Even a Second Grade Combat King is unable to do that!”
“What an incredible young man! And that Demon King dog is also very frightening, he killed a First Grade Combat King as well! I never expected the Asura Palace to get such powerful helpers! It seems that the result of this battle will now be uncertain.”
“Not necessarily. Although that young man can kill a First Grade Demon King, he’s only a Late Combat Soul warrior, not even a Combat King. I’m sure he’s no match for a Second Grade Combat King.”
No one were able to remain calm, and all spectators were struck with astonishment, especially those geniuses from the Invincible Clan, Peerless Sword Faction and Heavenly Devil Palace. Each and every single one of them were focusing on Jiang Chen. A Combat Soul warrior who was capable of instantly killing a Demon King, and was followed by another powerful Demon King. How could a young man like this not be known by anyone?
Among the crowd, Chang Qing and the other two disciples wore awkward expressions on their faces. They remembered how they started a conflict with Jiang Chen and Big Yellow back in the Golden Tower. Thinking back on that situation, if Jiang Chen and Big Yellow didn’t show any mercy, none of them would’ve been able to stand here unhurt.
Throughout the entire scene, only Tan Lang was still able to remain calm. After all, he had personally witnessed Jiang Chen kill Lord Nether. But even so, the mighty performance of Jiang Chen still brought him great shock.
"Kill that young man!"
Clenching his teeth tightly, the Heavenhawk Island Master shouted out loudly. They had lost two Pirate Lords, completely opposite of what they expected. This young man who had appeared out of nowhere had severely affected his plans.
“Hmph! A young kid who hasn’t even reached the Combat King realm! Let me kill him!”
The other Second Grade Combat King coldly harrumphed. He ditched the few Asura Palace disciples who he was fighting, then turned to Jiang Chen and launched an attack.
Seeing this, those geniuses couldn’t help but sigh out in relief. At the same time, they turned their glances toward Jiang Chen, but none of them showed any intentions of helping Jiang Chen.
Such a situation made Jiang Chen feel disgusted. These geniuses of the Asura Palace didn’t treat him as an ally, but just as a ‘bigger hand’ who could help them in this battle.
The Second Grade Combat King launched an extremely powerful attack, forcefully punching out toward Jiang Chen. The enormous force contained within the attack immediately ripped a large hole in the s.p.a.ce.
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed. He simply countered the attack with a punch of his own. It was a punch that contained no fancy skills or techniques. In the following second, the two attacks collided.
The collision instantly ripped apart a few layers of the s.p.a.ce in an instant. The fierce, aggressive Second Grade Combat King couldn’t withstand Jiang Chen’s attack, and was forced back dozens of meters before he could stabilize his body.
Unable to restrain his shock, the Second Grade Combat King’s face was filled with terror.
"Give me all your belongings, and I'll spare your life."
Jiang Chen told the Second Grade Combat King.
The Second Grade Combat King went blank, but was soon flooded with a feeling that this was funny, yet annoying. He was a Pirate Lord, and all this time, he had been the one to rob other people. However, today someone was actually trying to rob him?
A young man who tried to rob a Pirate Lord in the middle of a battle, this confused many people. This young man was truly an amazing man. In a scene like this, no one could differentiate between them, and see who the real pirate was.
The Second Grade Combat King was immediately enraged. With his cultivation, he refused to believe he couldn’t defeat a youngster who wasn’t even a Combat King. He just thought of this matter as him taking the enemy too lightly, causing him to be forced back just now, and that the only reason this young man could do so was because he had a strong body.
This time, the Second Grade Combat King took out his King Weapon. It was a sword that shone brightly. With a swing, he tore a large crack in the s.p.a.ce, causing ice-cold wind to blow out from the crack. Without hesitating further, he swung it toward Jiang Chen’s head.
“You have chosen the hard way to solve this.”
Jiang Chen raised his head and gazed at his opponent, a cold light flas.h.i.+ng through his eyes. When dealing with an outlaw like this Pirate Lord, he had no choice but to employ a vicious approach.
Thus, without delaying any further, he waved his arm and revealed the Heavenly Saint Sword. The sword issued a loud cry, then he swung it toward the enemy’s King Weapon.
The two sword collided with each other, sending bright sparks in all directions while ripping the s.p.a.ce apart, causing numerous cracks to appear. The Second Grade Combat King was still no match for him, and was once again knocked back by the powerful force. A b.l.o.o.d.y scar was visible on his palm, and he could barely hold onto his King Weapon.
Now, the Second Grade Combat King felt true fear. He couldn’t understand how a young man, who wasn’t even a Combat King, could possess such frightening strength.
The result of this battle terrified many people. Numerous people turned their heads toward Jiang Chen, even forgetting that they were in the middle of a battle. These people were certain of one thing; if this young man was capable of even killing a Second Grade Combat King, today’s battle would basically be meaningless.
With a sway of his body, Jiang Chen used the Nine Phantom Wolves skill. Nine identical Jiang Chens appeared at the same time and formed a tight circle around the Second Grade Combat King.
The Second Grade Combat King was dazzled by this, and had no idea how he should counter this. However, Jiang Chen didn’t give him any time to ponder. His cultivation had already reached the peak of the Combat Soul realm, and compared to the time when he killed the Old Great Emperor and the Demon King Palace’s Palace Chiefs, he was now many times stronger. Thus, killing a Second Grade Combat King was just a piece of cake to him now.
Two slicing sounds rung throughout the air as Jiang Chen swung his sword and took away both of the Second Grade Combat King’s arms.
Before the Second Grade Combat King could respond, nine Jiang Chens merged into one, and the Heavenly Saint Sword was placed against his throat.
"Give me all your belongings, and I'll spare your life. If not, I'll just kill you."
Jiang Chen said with an extremely cold voice. Compared to the life of this Second Grade Combat King, Jiang Chen cared more about the treasures stored in his Qi Sea s.p.a.ce. Although Jiang Chen could kill a Second Grade Combat King, he couldn’t do it like how he killed a First Grade Combat King; taking control of his Qi Sea and taking all his treasures first.
"Don't kill me! I'll give you everything I got!"
Although the Second Grade Combat King had lost both his arms, he still didn’t want to lose his life. He had witnessed how frightening and brutal Jiang Chen was. This young man’s cold eyes, his brutal approach; they were all far more aggressive than that of the Pirate Lord himself. Beyond any doubt, this Second Grade Combat King believed every single word Jiang Chen told him. If he dared to say no, this young man would definitely kill him without hesitating.
Though his treasures were important, compared to his life, they were nothing much.
Right when the Second Grade Combat King was about to hand over all his treasures, the Island Master struck. With both eyes turned red, he charged toward Jiang Chen with his saber in hand. His elaborate scheme had been ruined by this young man, and he was unable to suppress the fury in this mind. This young man also possessed extremely formidable strength, so if he didn’t attack him right now, he would be the next target after the Second Grade Combat King was dealt with. At that point of time, not only would he be unable to do anything to those geniuses of the Asura Palace, his own life would be at stake as well.
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed. He didn’t even turn his head toward the Island Master. With a casual swing, the Heavenly Saint Sword transformed into a dazzling beam and slashed against the Island Master’s saber. The terrifying force instantly forced the Island Master back.
