Chapter 520 - Destroying the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail
Dark clouds were gathered in the sky above, and lightning was constantly flas.h.i.+ng within. More and more bolts of lightning were pouring out from the clouds, startling all people in the Asura Palace.
Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh...
Powerful figures kept rus.h.i.+ng out from the inner area of the Asura Palace. All Combat Kings had revealed themselves, and all of the tyc.o.o.ns had shown up. Xiao Nanfeng and the grey-haired Elder were staring at the raging clouds in the sky in shock, wondering what was going on.
“What’s going on? Who’s going to face Heavenly Tribulation in the Asura Palace?”
Elder Liu exclaimed.
“This pressure is too strong, it might alert Palace Chief and the Great Elder who are in deep secluded cultivation.”
Another Elder said. The Palace Chief and Great Elder of the Asura Palace were both Combat Emperors, and the degree of their strength was immeasurable.
Suddenly, something strange happened. The vast and dense thunder clouds suddenly disappeared. However, the sky was still very dark. Not only that, although those clouds had disappeared, the tremendous pressure had actually become stronger, and everyone could still clearly hear the deafening claps of thunder.
"What exactly is going on?!"
The Third Tyc.o.o.n shouted out in astonishment. He had no idea what was going on.
“The Freezing h.e.l.l Jail, the Heavenly Tribulation has moved to the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail! Hurry, we need to find out what has happened!”
Xiao Nanfeng was unable to keep his calm any longer. Although the Asura Palace was a major power in the Liang Province, there was still a tremendous gap between them and the superpowers of the Divine Continent. Even their Palace Chief, the mighty Combat Emperor had never witnessed a real Heavenly Tribulation before, let alone they. Heavenly Tribulation was a supreme concept, and it would usually only be attracted when a Minor Saint was breaking through to the Great Saint realm, or when a Great Saint was trying to become an immortal. It was impossible for any ordinary cultivators to experience it. But now, a genuine Heavenly Tribulation was descending upon the Asura Palace, and it had gone straight to the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail, greatly shocking all of them. Without having to think much, it must be that someone in the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail had attracted Heavenly Tribulation.
Heavenly Tribulation could go wherever it wished. This was a vast universe, and there were many planes similar to the Saint Origin Realm. In every plane, whenever an abnormal monster appeared, Heavenly Tribulation would immediately be attracted. Therefore, although the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail was located in another s.p.a.ce, it was still unable to escape from Heavenly Tribulation. As long as Jiang Chen purposely emanated his aura, he could attract it whenever he wanted.
Right at this moment, the entire Freezing h.e.l.l Jail was filled with flashes of lightning and thunder. Lightning clouds gathered in the sky, and tremendous serpent-like lightning kept striking out from the clouds, looking like they would hit the ground at any time. The entire s.p.a.ce was violently shaking, and many spatial cracks had appeared in random places, making it look like the entire s.p.a.ce was about to be ripped apart at any time.
The lightning clouds were dense, especially the ones above Jiang Chen’s head. It was very obvious, and anyone could easily tell that the Heavenly Tribulation was attracted by Jiang Chen.
“Oh heavens! It’s a Heavenly Tribulation! He really attracted Heavenly Tribulation here! Only a Great Saint can attract Heavenly Tribulation, but he’s just a Combat King! How can be so heaven-defying? This is unbelievable!”
“This is bad, he’s going to face Heavenly Tribulation here. Once he’s finished, perhaps the entire Freezing h.e.l.l Jail will be destroyed.”
“What should we do now? Are we going to stop him?”
“Are you crazy?! Don’t you know how frightening Heavenly Tribulation is?! It’s the punishment sent forth by the heavens, and whoever stands under it will be punished by the heavens, and you’re almost certain to die once you do!”
All the Combat Kings in the Asura Palace were struck with astonishment. Initially, they wanted to kill Jiang Chen right after arriving, but they never thought Jiang Chen would bring them such a huge surprise. With this, no one would have the courage to attack him. Perhaps even the Palace Chief himself, a Combat Emperor, would not dare get close to this Heavenly Tribulation. After all, once a person interfered with a Heavenly Tribulation, he would trigger a tribulation of his own. The difficult of a Heavenly Tribulation was based on a cultivator’s overall strength. Thus, even a Combat Emperor might get killed by it.
“Heavens, it’s Heavenly Tribulation! Brother Jiang is really heaven-defying!”
Within the Heavenly Saint Sword, Tan Lang’s mouth was wide open in shock. He could clearly see what was going on outside the Heavenly Saint Sword, causing him to realize what Jiang Chen meant. Jiang Chen wanted to fight the Asura Palace using Heavenly Tribulation. This was a fierce approach.
Tan Lang was hiding with the Heavenly Saint Sword. With its protection, his safety was guaranteed. However, although Jiang Chen had the Heavenly Tribulation as his trump card, he was still worried about Jiang Chen. Someone had previously told Tan Lang that even a Great Saint would be in an extremely vulnerable period after going through Heavenly Tribulation, let alone Jiang Chen. So, once the Heavenly Tribulation was gone, Jiang Chen would be in an extremely dangerous situation.
More and more powerful warriors were arriving at the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail. The leading man was the Great Tyc.o.o.n, Xiao Nanfeng, as we asll as Elder Liu, the Ninth Grade Combat King. It was a big lineup, as nearly every single one of the Asura Palace’s powerful warriors had arrived. However, they were all astonished by what they saw.
“Great Tyc.o.o.n, Elder Liu, that man is Jiang Chen. He has killed the Ling Yi, and he has attracted Heavenly Tribulation. It looks like he’s going to face his tribulation here.”
The Seventh Grade Combat King Elder hastily said.
“It really is Heavenly Tribulation, I never expected this guy to be so heavenly defying. The Heavenly Tribulation is soon going to arrive, and if we let him face it here, the entire Freezing h.e.l.l Jail will collapse. This place has meticulously been created by the Palace Chief himself, and it will be a great loss for the Asura Palace if it is destroyed.”
Elder Liu said.
“Jiang Chen, I’m sure you came here to rescue Tan Lang. Now, I give you the permission to bring him away. However, you need to leave this place as soon as possible. I promise, the Asura Palace will never try to hunt you down again.”
Xiao Nanfeng shouted at Jiang Chen who stood in the middle of the lightning clouds. Although he hated Jiang Chen as well, nothing was more important than the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail at this time. Furthermore, even if he let Jiang Chen go now, Xiao Nanfeng could still catch up to him easily once his tribulation was finished.
"Brother Jiang, this guy is Xiao Nanfeng."
Tan Lang said to Jiang Chen via his divine sense. Jiang Chen turned his head toward Xiao Nanfeng, and his eyes immediately became cold. He had promised Zhuang Fan to get revenge for him, and now, with the appearance of this man who pretended to be righteous, Jiang Chen felt a strong desire to kill Xiao Nanfeng with the Heavenly Tribulation. However, Xiao Nanfeng wasn’t someone easy to deal with. He was a man with heavy precautions against any possible plots against him, so there was no way he’d fall into Jiang Chen’s trap.
“Haha, so you’re that b.a.s.t.a.r.d Xiao Nanfeng who rapes other people’s wives and kills their innocent children. I really despise people like you. One way or another, I will destroy this Freezing h.e.l.l Jail today! If you’re so great, come down and fight me now!”
Jiang Chen burst into laughter. Although Xiao Nanfeng said he would let Jiang Chen go free, he was basically treating Jiang Chen like a three year old kid. He was scared that Jiang Chen would destroy the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail, so he simply made up an empty promise. No matter what, the hostile relations.h.i.+p between Jiang Chen and the Asura Palace could never be resolved.
Right after Jiang Chen finished speaking, a loud boom suddenly rung out from the lightning clouds. Six crimson lightning bolts revealed themselves, and hovered above Jiang Chen’s head. From left to right, each was thicker than the previous. Jiang Chen was very familiar with Heavenly Tribulation, so with just one look, he could tell that this was the legendary Intermediate Six Tribulations.
"Haha, let's do this!"
Jiang Chen began laughing. He showed no signs of fear even when facing this Intermediate Six Tribulation. With his powerful body, he could easily resist the initial four tribulations. However, these four tribulations could easily destroy the entire Asura Palace. At that point of time, he would have to run away to a place far away before he could face the last two tribulations. Although he knew it was risky, as the Heavenly Tribulation drew so much attention that the powerful warriors of the Asura Palace could easily track him down, this was the only plan he had for now.
Furthermore, Jiang Chen also wanted to use this Heavenly Tribulation to increase his overall strength. All the Demon Kings locked up in here would become his tonics.
Another loud boom ran through the air. A crimson lightning bolt let out a raging roar, then poured down like a violent waterfall; bolting itself into Jiang Chen. All the powerful warriors of the Asura Palace were dumbstruck upon seeing this. None of them had seen a real Heavenly Tribulation before, so they were really curious about it.
Right when the first tribulation bolt appeared, Jiang Chen moved. Like an out of control horse, Jiang Chen moved at his full speed with the help of the Spatial s.h.i.+ft. In the blink of an eye, he arrived next to a Fifth Grade Combat King.
Before the Fifth Grade Combat King could do anything, he had triggered his own tribulation. A fierce lightning bolt instantly hit him, forcing him to let out a miserable shriek. He was instantly killed by the lightning bolt, and his entire body had become charred. It was a miserable scene.
All the other men cried out in shock at the same time. Only now were they able to respond. They were looking at Jiang Chen as if they were looking at a ghost, and they hastily retreated, trying to keep a safe distance from Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen had withstood the first lightning bolt, and it didn’t bring him any harm. The Heavenly Saint Sword was hovering by his side, and it was now fully covered with lightning. The pure lightning energy repeatedly penetrated into it. Not only was the energy tempering the Heavenly Saint Sword, it was also being absorbed by Tan Lang, who was hiding within. Tan Lang was severely injured, and it would be really difficult for him to fully recover. If he was able to absorb some of the lightning energy, it would no doubt be of great benefit to him.
Tan Lang dared not neglect. He held his breath and adjusted himself to his best possible form. Bit by bit, he absorbed the lightning energy, helping him temper his body.
Soon after, the second lightning bolt had formed, and it looked like it could strike down at any time. Looking at this, all the Combat Kings in the Asura Palace lost their curiosity, and began staring at Jiang Chen as if they were looking at a wild tiger.
“Fall back! We need to leave the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail at once! This guy is a lunatic, there is no way we can save the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail!”
Elder Liu shouted out loudly. None of the Combat Kings dared to hesitate. All of them possessed a talisman that allowed them to enter or leave the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail. Without hesitating, they immediately activated their talismans and left the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail.
Jiang Chen never prevented them from leaving. Firstly, he had to focus on facing his Heavenly Tribulation. Secondly, even though he could use the Heavenly Tribulation to kill a few Combat Kings, it wouldn’t help him much. It was still very difficult for him to kill Xiao Nanfeng. He was after all just a First Grade Combat King. The gap between him and a Ninth Grade Combat King was not small. Also, Xiao Nanfeng was quite clever, so there was no way he would fall into Jiang Chen’s trap.
Also, once they were gone, Jiang Chen would be able to wreak havoc in this Freezing h.e.l.l Jail. Those Demon Kings were going to suffer.
