Chapter 527 – Redeeming Interest
As Tyrant had laid down a formation outside the cave, nothing inside could be sensed by anyone outside. It was worth mentioning that some of the Buddhist techniques were pretty amazing. For example, the Concealing Formation set up by Tyrant. Unless someone who was an expert when it came to Buddhist techniques came, not even a Ninth Grade Combat King would be able to notice anything different about this cave without paying close attention. Also, as this was a pretty remote place, no one would really pay any attention to a rundown cave.
Also, this place wasn’t in the Liang Province, it was in the Jin Province; no longer the territory of the four major powers. Thus, it was relatively safe.
What Tyrant needed to do now was a.s.sist Jiang Chen and Big Yellow in their recovery; do everything he possibly could.
Two days later. Tyrant was staring at the man and dog lying motionlessly on the ground. He couldn’t help but let out a heavy sigh. A dense golden aura covered their bodies, making them look like two huge coc.o.o.ns. It was a very gentle glow, which allowed them to calm their minds while being inside. Not only that, as Tyrant had a Minor Saint’s sarira inside his body, it made the golden glow extremely pure, and provided an even bigger positive effect to Jiang Chen and Big Yellow’s injuries.
But unfortunately, as Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were suffering from severe injuries, they were now in deep comas, and were showing no signs of waking up. Not only that, Jiang Chen’s vitality was extremely weak, and it showed no signs of getting better. If not for that mysterious force inside his body supporting him, he would be no different from a dead man.
That mysterious force came from the Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pill which Jiang Chen had consumed at the most critical moment. The Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon Pill was a mighty divine pill, and without the help of this pill, Jiang Chen would be in an even worse state. Although the Dragon Transformation skill provided him a great self-recovery ability, it had now stopped working completely as Jiang Chen was in an extremely bad condition.
As for Big Yellow, the backlash from using the forbidden technique as well as the loss of his blood essence was too serious, and it was a miracle that he hadn’t died yet. However, since he had the support of the Dragon Horse bloodline, and the bloodline was continuously circulating in his body, his condition was much better when compared to Jiang Chen.
“Looks like the only solution is to return and let master save them. I can’t save them with my ability.”
Tyrant murmured. Although he was a Fourth Grade Combat King, he felt helpless when faced with Jiang Chen and Big Yellow’s severe injuries. During the past two days, he had used every single method he knew about, but none had brought any positive results.
The monk could easily abandon Jiang Chen and Big Yellow, leaving them here to go on his way. However, he would never do something like that. Jiang Chen had previously saved his life, so he had to save Jiang Chen no matter what, and he would give it his all.
After making up his mind, Tyrant waved his hand and placed both Jiang Chen and Big Yellow into his Qi Sea. After that, he walked out from the cave.
Three men flew by from the distance and stopped in the sky above this mountain range. The monk furrowed his brows as he looked at them. Without hesitating, he held his breath and looked at them carefully. They were all emanating powerful auras, and they were all Fifth Grade Combat Kings. Judging from the clothes they were wearing, they should be the geniuses from one of the four major powers in the Liang Province.
“Wen Hua, we’re in the Jin Province’s territory. Are you sure that monk will have come this far?”
One of the young men asked. He was a genius from the Invincible Sect.
“We can’t act rashly in the Jin Province, we should act with caution. Your Asura Palace has suffered a great loss this time, even the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail was destroyed. But, that Jiang Chen is indeed a frightening man. I never thought he’d be able to attract Heavenly Tribulation.”
Another young man who had a huge sword strapped behind his back said. His words carried a hint of exultation. He was from the Peerless Sword Faction. Currently, in order to hunt down the monk, although the three of them had temporarily teamed up, their relations.h.i.+p was rather bad, as the three major powers were constantly fighting each other. So, as the Asura Palace had suffered a great loss, the other two major powers would naturally take pleasure in their misfortune.
“During the past two days, we’ve searched everywhere in the Liang Province. So, I’m guessing they’ve already left the Liang Province. The Great Tyc.o.o.n has said that anyone who can capture that monk and Jiang Chen will be rewarded handsomely. As long as you two help me capture them, I’ll split the reward equally between the three of us.”
The young man from the Asura Palace called Wen Hua was actually the Sixth Tyc.o.o.n. He was a man with a prestigious status and a formidable cultivation base. At his young age, he had reached the Fifth Grade Combat King realm. After the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail was destroyed, the Great Tyc.o.o.n had ordered them to search for Jiang Chen and the monk. Also, he had offered a reward for whoever managed to capture them. That’s why Wen Hua had teamed up with these geniuses from the Peerless Sword Faction and Invincible Sect, which eventually brought them to Jiang Chen.
On the surface, these three major powers were of the righteous path, making them the Heavenly Devil Palace’s natural enemies. So, they naturally wouldn’t work with them.
“This mountain range looks really quiet, I don’t think there is anyone here. If we keep searching like this, it’ll be no different from looking for a needle in the ocean.”
The genius from the Invincible Sect said.
“Let’s scan this mountain range thoroughly with our divine sense.”
Wen Hua suggested.
Soon after, the three men all unleashed their divine sense, spreading it throughout the entire mountain range. The three Fifth Grade Combat Kings could easily search every single inch of this mountain range, and they could even see a tiny ant from high up.
Somewhere in the mountain range, with an insidious expression, Tyrant murmured, “Consider yourselves unlucky for b.u.mping into your grandpa Tyrant today. Brother Jiang, Big Yellow, let this monk return help you redeem some interest first.”
After saying that, Tyrant turned into a trail of light and shot into the sky, appearing in front of the three men.
"You b.a.s.t.a.r.ds! Your grandpa is here!"
Tyrant shouted out arrogantly. The image of an eminent monk from the Western Region was simply bulls.h.i.+t for Tyrant.
The three men who were attentively searching the mountain range were startled, and they stared at the monk who had appeared out of nowhere with astonishment. In an instant, great joy emerged on their faces.
“Stinky monk, it’s really you! I never expected you to actually be hiding in this place! We’ve struck gold today!”
Wen Hua was really happy. According to what he had heard from someone, this monk had found a rare treasure in the Chaotic Ocean. So, if he was able to capture this monk, not only would he obtain that treasure, he could also take credit for finding him, which would lead to him being rewarded handsomely upon returning.
“Monk, you truly have guts! Not only did you not hide after seeing us, you instead showed yourself in front of us. Looks like you’re tired of living in this world!"
The genius from the Invincible Sect said while laughing out loud. He wasn’t taking Tyrant seriously. The monk was only a Fourth Grade Combat King, while they had three Fifth Grade Combat Kings here. They could easily crush this monk.
“You’re right. This monk does feel tired of living in this world. However, it seems that you three are more tired than I am. So, I’ve decided to save your souls from purgatory!”
A bright smile blossomed onto Tyrant’s face. No one knew why he looked so confident when faced with three Fifth Grade Combat Kings.
“I have often heard that those eminent monks of the Western Region are cultured people, so you’re no doubt a black sheep among them. I’ll give you a chance to live now, as long as you give me Jiang Chen, I’ll spare your life.”
Wen Hua said.
“Who needs your mercy? Why don’t you come and kill me now? If you’re that great, just kill me!”
What the monk said nearly made Wen Hua throw up a mouthful of blood. This monk was a weirdo, he was definitely the biggest weirdo they had ever met.
“Don’t waste your time talking to him, let’s just kill him. Since this monk is here, Jiang Chen must be hiding somewhere close-by as well.”
The genius from the Invincible Sect said in a cold manner.
After saying that, the genius of the Invincible Sect charged toward Tyrant. He was going at full speed, and was attacking aggressively. He waved both hands and unleashed numerous runes, which weaved into a large silver-colored s.h.i.+eld, then bashed the s.h.i.+eld toward Tyrant.
No one knew how much force this strike contained, but it had instantly shattered the s.p.a.ce surrounding it. It was so powerful that it could instantly destroy a huge mountain.
However, the monk seemed unhurried, and no signs of panicking could be seen on his face. At the same time, a golden energy wave surged out from his body and towered into the sky, transforming into a huge golden beam. After that, the monk let out a wild roar and unleashed his Fudo Seal. It was a clear sign that the monk had no intention of showing any mercy to these people.
From the mighty power of the Fudo Seal, one could tell where Tyrant’s confidence came from. At this point of time, Tyrant’s cultivation base had improved significantly compared to when he was in the Chaotic Ocean. He was now a peak Fourth Grade Combat King, and he was half a step into the Fifth Grade Combat King realm.
And this was all because of the frightening sarira. It had improved Tyrant’s physique by a lot. Furthermore, the sarira was residing within his body, and it was constantly merging with the monk, meaning that Tyrant’s cultivation base was in a state where it was constantly being improved. He could enter the Fifth Grade Combat King realm at any time, or perhaps even go higher.
Back when he was in the Chaotic Ocean, with his Fourth Grade Combat King cultivation, Tyrant was able to instantly kill those Fourth Grade Combat King geniuses. This proved that he did indeed possess the ability to fight Fifth Grade Combat Kings. Now, with the increase to his overall strength, Fifth Grade Combat Kings were nothing much to him. Although Tyrant wasn’t as abnormal as Jiang Chen, who was able to kill those a few realms higher than himself, he had no problems killing someone who was only one realm higher than himself.
The Fudo Seal collided with the silver s.h.i.+eld. The shockwave from the collision of the two attacks instantly ripped the s.p.a.ce apart. The Fudo Seal was one of the three supreme Buddhist Seals, and it possessed the fiercest power of them all. The s.h.i.+eld unleashed by the genius from the Invincible Sect was instantly destroyed; it was so weak that it couldn’t even withstand a single blow.
After the Fudo Seal destroyed the s.h.i.+eld, its power wasn’t reduced at all, and it kept pus.h.i.+ng further into the genius. The genius from the Invincible Sect felt as if a gigantic mountain was crus.h.i.+ng into him, and he couldn’t hold up against it even with all his strength. He let out a miserable shriek, as one of his arms was twisted and broken by the seal. His forehead was bathed in sweat.
"Impossible, how can this monk be so strong?!"
The genius of the Invincible Sect couldn’t hold back his shock.
“This monk is too strong; a tough nut to crack. We need to fight him together, take out your weapons; don’t give him any chance to fight back!”
Wen Hua roared out. A large saber made from some unknown materials suddenly appeared in his hand, and it shone brightly. With just one look, one could easily tell that it was a rare King Weapon.
