Chapter 519 - Jiang Chen's Plan
Ling Yi was shaking with emotions. Only he knew how much hatred he had for Jiang Chen. After the fight in the Chaotic Ocean, not only had he lost one of his arms, he had also lost his reputation as the Eighth Tyc.o.o.n. He was a well-renowned man, but he was defeated by a First Grade Combat King. This was something he could never accept.
During the past few days, whenever he thought about Jiang Chen, he would clench his teeth in anger, and feel a strong desire to devour this man. Now, while all of the four major powers were searching for Jiang Chen everywhere, he had actually brought himself to Ling Yi. If they had met each other outside, he would fear Jiang Chen, but since this was the Asura Palace, he had no reason to fear him, as there were many existences here that could easily kill Jiang Chen.
Although Ling Yi was betraying in an unruly manner, he was actually moving backward. After all, he knew how strong Jiang Chen was. If he was still in his prime, he wouldn’t have backed off upon seeing Jiang Chen. However, as he had lost one of his arms, his combat strength was severely affected, causing him to no longer be a match for Jiang Chen.
While backing off, Ling Yi took out a talisman. It was a golden colored talisman, and he instantly crushed it upon bringing it out. It was clearly a communication talisman. Not long after the talisman was crushed, some mighty warriors would arrive.
Jiang Chen wasn’t bothered by Ling Yi’s action. No matter how many people arrived, he had no reason to fear them. Furthermore, he had never planned to leave just like that.
As the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail was an important place for the Asura Palace, he would alert those powerful figures upon forcefully breaking out. More importantly, with Jiang Chen’s current strength, he couldn’t forcefully break the s.p.a.ce in this place. Of course, Jiang Chen still had other ways to leave this place.
"Brother Tan, let me kill this guy and get revenge for you."
With a smile on his face, Jiang Chen turned to Tan Lang and said. In an instant, he transformed into a trail of light and dashed into Ling Yi. Using the Spatial s.h.i.+ft skill which granted him incredible speed, he arrived in front of Ling Yi in just a split second. Jiang Chen would not show any mercy when dealing with Ling Yi. This guy was after all a Fourth Grade Combat King, not an easy opponent.
Therefore, Jiang Chen immediately attacked with the Azure Dragon’s Five Steps. Upon taking the first step, the entire s.p.a.ce violently swayed, and numerous illusionary dragons flickers around his leg. Jiang Chen stepped onto Ling Yi’s head.
Sensing the formidable energy and oppressive might coming from Jiang Chen, Ling Yi’s expression immediately changed. He dared not neglect this, and instantly unleashed a large layer of brilliant rays to counter the attack.
Tap! Tap! Tap!
Jiang Chen took three steps in a row, and each step collided violently with Ling Yi’s attack. After losing one arm, Ling Yi became unable to fight with his full strength. Because of this, he was no match for Jiang Chen, let alone when Jiang Chen was using the powerful True Dragon Skill – Azure Dragon’s Five Steps.
Ling Yi was forced back by the tremendous force, and threw up a few mouthfuls of blood. His face was extremely pale, and his aura was in a chaotic state.
“Argh! Someone, help me quickly!”
Ling Yi furiously roared out. He was well aware of how frightening Jiang Chen was, and if no one came to help him, perhaps he would soon be killed by this man.
However, Jiang Chen would never give him the chance. While Ling Yi roared out, Jiang Chen took his fourth step.
The fourth step fell down like a mighty bolt of lightning. All of Jiang hen’s strength had merged into this single step, and it stomped down onto Ling Yi’s head. A miserable shriek escaped Ling Yi’s mouth before his head exploded. He died on the spot.
Tan Lang cried out in shock upon witnessing this frightening scene. Jiang Chen really killed Ling Yi, a Fourth Grade Combat King! If he hadn’t witnessed this himself, he never would have believed it. He knew Jiang Chen had broken through to the Combat King realm. However, killing a Fourth Grade Combat King as just a First Grade Combat King, this was extremely shocking.
As a matter of fact, Jiang Chen’s current combat strength was only equal to that of Ling Yi. So, it wasn’t easy for Jiang Chen to kill him. However, after their fight in the Chaotic Ocean, Ling Yi had subconsciously began to fear Jiang Chen, and because he had also lost one arm, a huge gap was drawn between their strength.
“Who is that young man? He’s so bold!”
“This is the first time a Tyc.o.o.n has been killed in the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail, this is incredible!”
At the moment, the entire Freezing h.e.l.l Jail broke out into an uproar. Many demons and criminals rested their eyes upon Jiang Chen, their expressions that of disbelief. However, the death of a Tyc.o.o.n still brought them great joy.
“Who is creating trouble in the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail?”
Right at this moment, a deep voice run through the air in the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail. At the same time, several dozen powerful auras arrived in this place. Amongst these auras, the most powerful belonged to a Seventh Grade Combat King. Jiang Chen could easily tell this from the voice alone.
With a sway of his body, Jiang Chen once again returned to Tan Lang. He looked at Tan Lang with a bright smile, “I’ve gotten revenge for you.”
"Brother Jiang, you've gone too far this time."
Ling Yi was dead, and Tan Lang’s mind was filled with joy. However, because of the current situation, he couldn’t truly enjoy the happiness. Now, with the arrival of those powerful figures, this place had become a jail of death, and there was no way they could escape even if they were given a pair of wings.
Jiang Chen flipped his palm and took out the Heavenly Saint Sword. He swung the sword forward and shattered the cage that locked Tan Lang up. After that, he hastily said, “Brother Tan, I need you to enter my sword’s inner s.p.a.ce. I’ll use the Lightning’s Force to help your body recover. No matter what happens later, don’t let it distract your state of mind.”
After saying that, a crack appeared on the Heavenly Saint Sword’s body. The Heavenly Saint Sword was Jiang Chen’s Natal Weapon, and after Jiang Chen broke through to the Combat King realm, it had become a King Weapon, which produced a s.p.a.ce within its body.
Since Jiang Chen had the confidence to enter the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail and rescue Tan Lang, he must have a trump card in his hand. In fact, his trump card was the Heavenly Tribulation. He hadn’t gone through Heavenly Tribulation after breaking through to the Combat King, and now, with the arrival of those powerful warriors of the Asura Palace, he would make them go through Heavenly Tribulation with him. When Jiang Chen broke through to the Combat Soul realm, he was greeted by Minor Three Tribulation, and this time, he was sure to be greeted with Intermediate Six Tribulation. Once his Intermediate Six Tribulation arrived, the entire Freezing h.e.l.l Jail would be destroyed. He had no doubts about this.
"What are you saying?"
Tan Lang was startled. He had no idea what Jiang Chen meant.
"Come in quickly, you'll understand soon."
Not taking any time to explain, Jiang Chen made the Heavenly Saint Sword emit a suction force, causing Tan Lang to be pulled into its internal s.p.a.ce. Initially, he planned on placing Tan Lang within his storage ring, and once he left this place, he would let him out. However, as Tan Lang was suffering from severe injuries right now, it would greatly benefit his recovery if he could accept the baptism of lightning. After all, lightning possessed incredibly pure Yang energy, and it was the best method to temper one’s body.
The Heavenly Saint Sword had only become a King Weapon recently, so it wasn’t in a very stable state. So, Jiang Chen would take this opportunity to temper it. As Tan Lang was hiding inside of the Heavenly Saint Sword, it would provide him good protection and spare him from the Heavenly Tribulation’s damage. He would also be able to obtain some benefits from this tempering process.
Soon, several dozen figures were revealed in Jiang Chen’s line of sight. When they saw Ling Yi’s dead body, they were struck with great shock. They turned their eyes to Jiang Chen. It was obvious that he was the one who had killed Ling Yi.
While they were measuring Jiang Chen with their eyes, Jiang Chen looked back at them as well. All of these guy were Combat Kings. The weakest among them was a Second Grade Combat King, while the strongest was a Seventh Grade Combat King. Five of them were old men, and were supposedly elders of the Asura Palace. The remaining men didn’t look old, and most of them were around twenty to thirty years old. Three of them were tyc.o.o.ns.
“Who are you? How dare you kill a Tyc.o.o.n of the Asura Palace in the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail?! You’re courting death!”
The old Seventh Grade Combat King shouted at Jiang Chen.
“I’m Jiang Chen, the man you’ve been looking all over for.”
Jiang Chen said.
“What?! How did you come here?”
The old man was really surprised. He didn’t doubt that Jiang Chen’s words. Although he had never seen Jiang Chen before, someone had described the image of this young man to him. He was a young man who was about 17-18 years old. Besides that, Tan Lang had disappeared from his cage. So, this young man must be Jiang Chen, and he was here to rescue Tan Lang.
“You’ve come at the perfect time! We’ve been looking all over for you. You’ve killed disciples of the Asura Palace, and because of that, you deserve to die. Now, you’ve even killed our Eighth Tyc.o.o.n. Now, no one can save you. However, there is one thing I don’t understand. Why would you come to this place? Is that Tan Lang really that important to you? Or do you perhaps think you can leave this place safely?”
It was the Sixth Tyc.o.o.n who just spoke. He looked to be in his thirties, and he was portraying an imposing image. The Tyc.o.o.ns weren’t ranked according to age, but strength. The Sixth Tyc.o.o.n was a Fifth Grade Combat King, and was a powerful man.
“Of course. If I want to leave, none of you can stop me. Also, I don’t see why this Freezing h.e.l.l Jail should exist.”
While saying that, a bright crimson beam shot out from Jiang Chen’s head. Within the bright beam, there was a blood red shadow of an Azure Dragon flying around. It lifted its head and let a soul-shaking dragon cry into the sky
Explosive thunderous sounds suddenly rang through the air, causing the entire Freezing h.e.l.l Jail to violently shake.
“What’s going on?! Why can I feel a tremendous pressure?! This isn’t the kind of pressure that comes from a human, but rather from Heaven and Earth!”
The old Seventh Grade Combat King was struck with astonishment. Right at this moment, everyone turned their heads toward the sky. No one had any idea what was going to happen. However, they had a really bad feeling about it.
At the same time, dark clouds suddenly gathered over the Asura Palace. Lightning flashed within the sky, and thunder roared out. The entire scene looked like the arrival of doomsday.
“What’s going on? Why did the color of the sky suddenly change?”
“Such a tremendous pressure! What’s going to happen? Is this heavens’ anger?”
“I once read about something similar in a book. I think this is Heavenly Tribulation! Heavens! Could it be that someone is about to face Heavenly Tribulatin in the Asura Palace? Only a Great Saint can attract Heavenly Tribulation, and there is no one at that level in the Asura Palace… Or, perhaps a heaven-defying object has emerged in Asura Palace, thus attracting Heavenly Tribulation?”
The scene caused everyone to panic. No one were able to remain calm.
