Chapter 560 - Can't Even Be Stopped by Ninth Grade Combat Kings
Silence reigned in the atmosphere above the ocean. It was as if the entire ocean had stopped moving, as no waves could be seen at all. The pungent smell of blood lingered in the air, and even the night breeze had stopped blowing. Every spectator in this area felt extremely uncomfortable.
Everyone were holding their breath. Many people had gathered around the Heavenhawk Island, but no one had the courage to make any noise. The Heavenhawk Island had truly been bathed in blood now. It was a huge loss for the Asura Palace! Three of their tyc.o.o.ns had been killed, including their Second Tyc.o.o.n, who was an Eighth Grade Combat King. Also, they hadn’t just lost these genius disciples, they had also lost their face. After all, it was the first time an incident like this had taken place in the Liang Province. As one of the four major powers, no one had ever dared to offend the disciples of the Asura Palace.
Jiang Chen slowly put the Heavenly Saint Sword away. He didn’t take a second look at those corpses, but instead, he took a step forward, arriving in front of Zhuang Fan. He waved his hand, unleas.h.i.+ng a bright beam which released Zhuang Fan. After that, Jiang Chen’s Yuan energy became gentle as it covered Zhuang Fan, making him float in the air.
“Zhuang Fan, I’ll do what I promise you I’d do. Once I’ve killed Xiao Nanfeng, I’ll bring you back to Green City and let you rest in peace.”
Jiang Chen murmured. He took out a storage ring and placed Zhuang Fan’s body into it. Initially, he planned on finding a place to bury Zhuang Fan’s body, but after some thoughts, he felt that if he buried him just like that, Zhuang Fan wouldn’t be able to rest in peace in his grave. Also, Zhuang Fan wouldn’t want to be buried in some random place, he still had a family. So, Jiang Chen made a decision. Once he killed Xiao Nanfeng, fulfilling Zhuang Fan’s wish, he would find the graves of Zhuang Fan’s wife and son and bury them together, allowing them to reunite.
“Now that Jiang Chen has killed so many people from the Asura Palace, I’m sure those powerful warriors of the Asura Palace has found out. He’s going to face serious consequences. If a Combat Emperor strikes personally, no matter how frightening Jiang Chen is, there is no way he can fight against such formidable warriors.”
“You don’t know about this yet? There aren’t any Combat Emperors in the Asura Palace at the moment.”
“What happened? I thought the Palace Chief, Li Tianyang and the Great Elder were both Combat Emperors?”
“It seems you really don’t know about it. It isn’t just the Asura Palace, even all the other three major powers have no Combat Emperors residing within. The leader of the four major powers have all come to an agreement, they are to bring the number one genius of each sect to Mount Luoxia and have all four geniuses fight each other to decide who the number one genius of the Liang Province will be, as it might motivate them to break through to the Combat Emperor realm. I heard that the number one genius will even be taken in by one of the Xuan Region’s superpowers. This is a rare opportunity, so the Combat Emperors of the four major powers all brought their genius to Mount Luoxia. I don’t think they’ll return for at least a few days.”
“I see. However, although they don’t have any Combat Emperors at the moment, I suppose they still have quite a few Ninth Grade Combat Kings. If they came, they might be able to deal with Jiang Chen.”
All they spectators began discussing. A major incident had just occurred, so it was impossible for the Asura Palace to remain indifferent. If they didn’t kill Jiang Chen, the Asura Palace would become the entire Liang Province’s laughingstock. A few months ago, the Asura Palace’s reputation had been washed down the drain after Jiang Chen destroyed the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail, and now, one of their strongholds had been completely destroyed by Jiang Chen, and all their men had been killed. This matter was no longer just about reputation.
After Jiang Chen put away Zhuang Fan’s corpse, he turned his glance over to the Heavenhawk Island. He waved his hand, revealing the Heavenly Saint Sword once more.
“You’re the original owner of this island. Since you’re now dead, I’ll destroy this island as well.”
After saying that, the Heavenly Saint Sword began trembling once more. Countless golden sword beams shot out from it, charging toward different buildings on the island.
Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh...
At that moment, the entire night sky was filled with dazzling sword beams. Each beam looked like a shooting star as they fell down from the sky at an incredible speed.
The ground began shaking as all buildings on the Heavenhawk Island were brought to a devastating state. They were completely destroyed by the sword beams unleashed by Jiang Chen. A large amount of dust billowed up into the sky. In just a few breaths time, all buildings on the Heavenhawk Island had been turned into ruins.
From now on, there would no longer be a Heavenhawk Island in the Chaotic Ocean. This island had become history together with Zhuang Fan. Jiang Chen’s actions would definitely leave a deep mark in the Chaotic Ocean’s history.
Tyrant and Tan Lang arrived next to Jiang Chen. Tyrant said, “Little Chen, before we plan our next move, I suggest we leave this place. I’m sure our actions have alerted the powerful warriors of the Asura Palace.”
As a matter of fact, when the trio returned from the Western Region, their initial plan was to stay low. They disguised themselves and planned to meet up with Zhuang Fan first. As for the scores with the Asura Palace and the other three major powers, they would still need more time to consider before coming to a decision. However, out of their expectations, something huge had happened, and it ended up stirring Jiang Chen’s anger. In the end, not only were they unable to stay low, they even caused a tremendous commotion.
"Alright, let's go."
Jiang Chen nodded his head, preparing to leave the Chaotic Ocean.
Right at this moment, two powerful auras could be felt approaching them from afar. In the blink of an eye, the two figures had arrived. When they saw the Heavenhawk Island’s current state, their expressions changed dramatically. Not long before this, they had received a message. Knowing that Jiang Chen had returned and was killing everyone here, and that Jiang Chen had even killed the Second Tyc.o.o.n, they immediately rushed over. However, they were still too late. Everyone were dead, and even the Heavenhawk Island had been destroyed.
These two old men were both Ninth Grade Combat Kings. One of them was Elder Liu who sat beside Xiao Nanfeng that time, and the other was another Elder of the Asura Palace. Just like someone had previously said, Li Tianyang and the Great Elder had brought Xiao Nanfeng to Mount Luoxia. Thus, these two Ninth Grade Combat Kings were the strongest warriors the Asura Palace had.
When the two men arrived, they immediately looked at Jiang Chen and his friends’ faces, and they were immediately enraged.
In the Combat King realm, although Ninth Grade Combat King was just a step above the eighth, the gap between them was extremely huge.
"Jiang Chen, you're not dead yet?!"
Elder Liu shouted as he angrily stared at Jiang Chen.
"Disappointed to see me again, aren't you?"
Jiang Chen just smiled. He never took either of these men seriously. If the Asura Palace only sent two Ninth Grade Combat Kings here, there was no way they could stop him. With his current strength, he could kill an Eighth Grade Combat King with ease, but he still wasn’t a match for a Ninth Grade Combat King.
However, it was impossible for Ninth Grade Combat Kings to kill Jiang Chen as well. Under the situation where Jiang Chen used his Spatial s.h.i.+ft, unless there was a Combat Emperor here, there was no one who could stop him. If Jiang Chen wanted to leave, these two Ninth Grade Combat Kings could only watch him do so.
“Tan Lang, I never expected you to still be alive as well. As a disciple of the Asura Palace, you actually chose to betray us! You’re truly abominable!”
The other Elder scolded upon seeing Tan Lang.
“You old fool, who gave you the right to judge whether or not I am a traitor? Do you not know how the Asura Palace treated me? Should I be grateful when you’re all trying to kill me? Let me tell you, there is no longer any relations.h.i.+p between me, Tan Lang and the Asura Palace. No, that’s incorrect, we do have a relations.h.i.+p, but it’s a hostile one.”
Tan Lang said out loudly. His heart was filled with anger whenever he saw someone from the Asura Palace, especially this Elder Liu, as it was this old fool who suggested to throw him into the Freezing h.e.l.l Jail.
“Stop with your bulls.h.i.+t. Let’s strike together and capture all three of them, then we’ll let Palace Chief decide their fates when he returns. They actually dare kill so many disciples of the Asura Palace! Even if they escape to the heavens or underground, we’ll never give them any chance to escape!”
Elder Liu said while clenching his teeth tightly. The two Combat Kings fully unleashed their auras, locking down the s.p.a.ce of this region, making sure that the trio had no chance of escaping.
“Haha, when I, Jiang Chen wants to leave, you two can only just watch as I do so!”
Jiang Chen began laughing. He stretched out both hands, grabbing the arms of Tyrant and Tan Lang, then, with a sway of his body, the three of them simply disappeared without a trace. He had no idea about Mount Luoxia, so he was worried that Combat Emperors might be on their way here. He would be in a disadvantageous position if he had to face Combat Emperors. Also, it would be meaningless to waste his time with these two Ninth Grade Combat Kings, as he wouldn’t be able to defeat him either. Thus, he just left the place.
When the two elders realized what had happened, the trio had already reappeared in a place very far away.
The two elders simultaneously cried out in shock. They had obviously sealed up the entire area’s s.p.a.ce, but Jiang Chen had just left without making any fluctuations; proving to them that sealing up s.p.a.ce was completely useless.
In the distance, Tyrant and Tan Lang both showed astonishment on their faces as well, as they looked at Jiang Chen. They had no idea how Jiang Chen did it, but they would tell it was because of a movement skill used by him just now, which allowed them to s.h.i.+ft straight into the void, avoiding the seals of the two Ninth Grade Combat Kings. A technique like this was indeed incredible.
This was how frightening the Spatial s.h.i.+ft was. As Jiang Chen’s cultivation increased, the skill would become stronger as well. A single use of the skill could bring him so incredibly far away from where he originally was. Even a Ninth Grade Combat King would fail to keep up with his speed.
"Jiang Chen, where do you think you’re going?!"
Elder Liu shouted from behind them. A weapon could be seen in his hand. The two Ninth Grade Combats Kings were crazily chasing after Jiang Chen.
“Haha, old fool, you can just follow daddy here and smell my farts!”
Jiang Chen joyfully laughed out as he used the Spatial s.h.i.+ft once more, disappearing instantly. He really missed Big Yellow at this moment. If Big Yellow was here, he would definitely let the two old fools taste his magnificent fart. The power of Big Yellow’s fart not something to make light of.
