Chapter 59 – Just in Case
“Xiao Yu, you have already broken through to the Mortal Core realm!”
Jiang Chen felt like he had been struck by a blow, but the smile on his face didn’t diminish at all. The more powerful Yan Chen Yu was, the happier he was.
After all, the Nine Yin Meridians was an ancient holy body condition, and since it was holy, it meant that ordinary people couldn’t compare. A holy body amongst humans was the same as a holy beast amongst demon beasts. They were the ones favored by the heavens. Their cultivation speed was superior to everyone else’s. In addition, it was not only limited to cultivation speed as they also had innate abilities as well. Each one of them were truly powerful. This kind of being couldn’t be judged by normal standards.
“Big Bro Jiang Chen, it’s all because of you that I am currently like this. You saved my life, and I haven’t really expressed my appreciation yet!”
Yan Chen Yu said honestly.
“So, how is Xiao Yu going to thank Big Bro?”
Jiang Chen said with an evil smile.
“Just marry him, get it done fast! Stop being so sappy in front of me!”
Big Yellow couldn’t bear it any longer.
Yan Chen Yu gazed at Big Yellow. When she heard him talk about marriage, her face became even more flushed. The more she thought about it, the shyer she became.
Big Yellow showed his teeth and tried teasing this innocent girl again, but what Yan Chen Yu said immediately stopped him.
“Little dog! Don’t talk anymore nonsense!”
Hearing himself be called little dog instantly defeated Big Yellow. He instantly fell onto the ground. Jiang Chen, who stood to the side, immediately started laughing out loud. The innocent Xiao Yu had defeated Big Yellow. This mean dog had finally found his natural enemy.
Big Yellow stood up from the ground slowly. He was so angry that tears came out of his eyes. ‘This little girl dared call me a little dog? d.a.m.n you, which part of me is small? Can you find any other dog that is stronger than me? Ugh, daddy here isn’t even a dog!’
“Alright, let’s hurry up and leave this place.”
Jiang Chen said with a serious expression.
“Big Bro Jiang Chen, where are the people from the Heavenly Sword Sect?”
Along the way, Yan Chen Yu asked.
“I’ve killed them all.”
Jiang Chen said casually.
Yan Chen Yu’s face immediately showed an uncomfortable expression once she heard him talk about killing people. Looking at this, Jiang Chen sighed in his mind. This little girl was just too naïve and innocent.
The Nine Yin Meridians had made her stay within the Yan family for years without stepping out once. To an innocent girl like her who has yet to experience the world, killing someone was something really unusual and far away from her reach.
“Xiao Yu, you’ll get used to it in future.”
Jiang Chen held Yan Chen Yu’s shoulder softly. Yan Chen Yu had the Nine Yin Meridians. The little Red city was not going to hold her forever, and sooner or later she would need to step into the real world of cultivation. In order for her Nine Yin Meridians to grow, killing was a step that couldn’t be skipped.
“I don’t want to kill people!”
Yan Chen Yu said with a serious expression. To her, killing was something incredibly cruel.
Jiang Chen didn’t respond to her words, he just smiled. This young girl had just come out and experienced the world for the first time. She would need some time to get used to it.
Big Yellow surprisingly didn’t say a single word along the way. Being called a little dog had completely defeated him.
Within the meeting hall of the Yan family.
Yan Zhan Yun was walking back and forth in the hall. The other elders looked worried as well. Yan Chen Yu’s Nine Yin Meridians had just awoken, and not only was the disease that had been bothering her for years been solved, she had also broken through to the Mortal Core realm. This was something that should be celebrated, but none of them could laugh at this moment.
“I wonder how Brother Jiang Chen is doing now…”
Yan Zhan Yun said worriedly.
“Yu’er is a Mortal Core warrior now, and with her powerful Nine Yin Meridians, she should be able to provide Brother Jiang Chen some help!”
Yan Hong Tai said.
“Chief, Brother Jiang Chen is our Yan family’s savior. We can’t just sit by and watch as something bad happens to him!”
Yan Yang said out loud. His life had been saved by Jiang Chen, and right now Jiang Chen was in danger. He couldn’t just sit tight and wait patiently.
“It shouldn’t be a problem. With Brother Jiang Chen’s abilities, if they want to kill him, it would not be an easy thing to do!”
Yan Zhan Yun said. He was also trying to convince himself. In fact, he was more worried than anyone else about Jiang Chen, but the Yan family couldn’t do anything. First reason why they couldn’t do anything was because of the Yan family’s future. They couldn’t afford to offend the Heavenly Sword Sect.
Secondly, Lee Shan Yue hated Jiang Chen deeply. He finally had the chance to avenge his sons, and he was not going to let him go easily. He would definitely watch the Yan family’s movements closely. If Yan Zhan Yun tried to help, Lee Shan Yue would stop him for sure, just like how Yan Zhan Yun had stopped Lee Shan Yue outside the mountains before this.
Just when everyone were sitting in the hall with worried expressions, Yan Meng came into the hall with an extremely joyful face.
“Chief, senior elder! Young lady and Brother Jiang Chen are back!”
“What? They are back?!”
The worried expressions were immediately turned into happy ones. They looked towards the entrance and saw the people coming in. The three were Jiang Chen and Yan Chen Yu, and behind them was a big yellow dog.
When they saw Jiang Chen, the depressed atmosphere immediately turned into one of a celebration.
“Haha, Brother Jiang Chen, it is really good to see that you are fine!”
Yan Zhan Yun started laughing joyfully.
“Brother Jiang, where is the trio from the Heavenly Sword Sect?”
Yan Yang asked with a curious expression.
“They are burned into ashes!”
Big Yellow said as he tried to prove his existence. Everyone were familiar with this dog. This was an incredibly rude dog. His image had been rooted deep into everyone’s mind. This dog had made the disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect pursue him for several thousands of miles. He was not someone who can be underestimated.
But since this dog was following Jiang Chen, they would not reject him either.
“Really? Brother Jiang, you killed them all?”
Yan Yang opened his mouth with a shocked face.
“That’s right, I broke through to the Late Qi Hai realm at a critical time and defeated Chen Shuang.”
Jiang Chen said casually. He had shocked everyone in this hall. At this moment, everyone in the hall looked at the young man in front of them. Aside from the shocked faces, there were also looks of disbelief in some eyes.
Since when was breaking through a level so simple? This was just a plain blow to everyone here. Besides, even if he was a Late Qi Hai warrior, he couldn’t possibly kill a Mid Mortal Core warrior so easily; it was after all a Mid Mortal Core warrior. When did Mortal Core warriors become so weak?
If it wasn’t for them knowing Jiang Chen quite well, they would all have started laughing at Jiang Chen for telling a lie before deeply despising him afterwards.
Everyone was shaking their heads speechlessly. Yan Yang even felt a helpless emotion. Compared to Jiang Chen, who would dare call themselves a genius? A genius wasn’t a word that could be used to describe Jiang Chen. Instead, he was a demon.
“Brother Jiang Chen, Xiao Yu’s and your return must already be known by the Lee family men. Three of Lee Shan Yue’s sons have died, so he won’t let go of this matter easily. If he becomes insane, he would do anything to get his revenge!”
Yan Zhan Yun said as he furrowed his brows.
“Lee Shan Yue’s target is me alone. If Chief Yan feels that I have brought troubles to the Yan family, then I will leave now.”
Jiang Chen said.
“It’s not what you think it is, Brother Jiang Chen! You are the Yan family’s greatest savior. Even if I have to pay with my own life, I, Yan Zhan Yun will not hesitate to help you! Besides, in this city, the Yan family and Lee family are enemies. There was bound to be a battle between us sooner or later!”
Yan Zhan Yun hurried and said seriously.
“That’s right. At its worst it will just be an intense battle, and we are not afraid of the Lee family as they are now!”
Yan Hong Tai said. Everyone present was in high spirits. Maybe they didn’t have the courage to fight with the Heavenly Sword Sect, but a fight with the Lee family? They had not once backed away from it!
“If Lee Shan Yue chooses to fight us at this time, he will lose for sure! This is a big chance for the Yan family!”
Jiang Chen said.
“What do you mean Brother Jiang Chen?”
Yan Zhan Yun asked.
“Think about it. Three young masters of the Lee family are dead, and almost all of the geniuses from the younger generation are gone! This has clearly made the Lee family’s spirits low. However, the Lee family’s roots in this city are deep; the deaths of a few Qi Hai warriors won’t cause a big impact on their total strength. What Lee Shan Yue needs to do now is calm everyone’s minds down and strengthen their spirits, but he can’t since he cannot control his anger. He even killed two geniuses from those families depending on the Lee family himself!”
Jiang Chen’s eyes were s.h.i.+ning with intelligence. He continued and said, “What Lee Shan Yue did ended up disappointing those dependent families. He has lost the heart of his men and lost their spirits. Now, even if they manage to maintain their strength, they wouldn’t be able to defend themselves from the Yan family.”
Jiang Chen’s words brought enlightenment to everyone in the hall.
What Jiang Chen said was right. The fight between the two families was just like a war. When both sides were almost equal in combat strength, the things that were going to affect the war would be the men’s spirits and support from their men. The geniuses from the Lee family’s young generation were all dead. Their spirits were low, almost gone, and Lee Shan Yue had personally killed young geniuses from those dependent families. This was a good time for the Yan family to attack.
“What Brother Jiang Chen said is right! If the Lee family wants a war, then we are not afraid!”
Yan Hong Tai said.
“Fine! Everyone let’s start preparing! Gather all the combat forces of our family! Prepare for a war with the Lee family!”
Yan Zhan Yun said as he unleashed his high spirits.
“Chief Yan, I have one matter where I need your help.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Please tell me, Brother Jiang Chen!”
Yan Zhan Yun answered politely.
“I wish that senior elder can stay in Fragrant Sky city with the Jiang family for a few days. If he can then my mind will be at peace!”
Jiang Chen said as he looked at Yan Hong Tai.
“Brother Jiang Chen, I know you’re afraid that Lee Shan Yue will send someone to attack the Jiang family, but I thought there was a Heavenly Core warrior residing in your Jiang family?”
Yan Hong Tai asked with a puzzled expression. Everyone could understand that Jiang Chen was worried about the safety of his Jiang family, but since there was a Heavenly Core warrior there, why would they need to have another Mortal Core warrior?
“That Heavenly Core warrior has a bad temper. If senior elder can go there personally, I’ll be at ease!”
Jiang Chen said. Only he knew that there was no Heavenly Core warrior residing in the Jiang family mansion. If Lee Shan Yue was truly pushed to his limits and sent some Mortal Core warriors to attack the Jiang family, then with the Jiang family’s strength, they wouldn’t be able to defend themselves. It was because of this that Jiang Chen needed to arrange some preparations of his own.
Yan Hong Tai was a Late Mortal Core warrior. As long as Lee Shan Yue didn’t go there himself, Yan Hong Tai would be able to protect the Jiang family’s safety by himself. Right now, Lee Shan Yue had his focus Jiang Chen, and knowing that Jiang Chen was in the Misty Rain Tower, he wouldn’t be leaving Red city.
