The atmosphere became tensed. Lan Yi and Yu Wei didn’t expect such an incident to happen. Many disciples that fought along with Jiang Chen in Huang Ling Desert were struck with mixed feelings. They want to follow him after he had become a disciple of Nebula Sect.
From what was happening now, it was virtually impossible. Even the seven Feng Yun brothers had changed their mind. They wanted to kill this potential threat that had intruded their lands. It seemed Jiang Cheng’s fate wasn’t going to be any better.
Jiang Chen’s gaze was gloomy. That roar of dragon had just saved his life. It reminded him that there were more secrets about the Dragon Transformation Art that were still veiled. It began the moment he started to cultivate the skill. Every metamorphosis would bring him a true dragon combat technique. Last time when he acquired the Five Elements Combat Dragon Seal, he obtained a trace of dragon blood from the Dragon Transformation Art, which had fully transformed his body. In a life and death situation like today, he was saved by the ancient dragon’s roar that shattered the Brilliant Mirror. He had no idea how many secrets did the Dragon Transformation Art had.
Jiang Chen looked up and met the eyes of the Feng Yun’s brothers, their eyes sparkled as sharp as the light of a sword. It seemed it would be impossible for him to leave.
“Kid, quickly. Who the h.e.l.l are you?”
Feng Yun San said coldly.
As Jiang Chen was about to speak, a strong Qi like an intangible ocean covered the sky above the martial art arena. The Qi was blended with a thick Saint aura. Under the aura’s influence, everyone was having trouble breathing. It made them wanted to wors.h.i.+p the being that had just appeared for mercy.
After a while, a peaceful cloud appeared overhead. It swayed and turned into a middle-aged man in blue robes. He looked about more than forty years old. His brows were pointed, his eyes were as fierce as a tiger, his face was as sharp as knife and his body was slim and tall, and most of all there was a domineering aura that was projected naturally. The saint aura that flowed out of his body showed that he was a Saint. Although he was just a Minor Saint, it was still a being that numerous people would admire and respect. He was Nebula Kidd, the master of Nebula Sect and the G.o.d of his disciples. He represented the greatest power in the sect and the law.
“He is the master. The shattering of the Brilliant Mirror has attracted the master to come. He is a supreme being with his Minor Saint Grade. This is the second time that I have seen his real face.”
“He is a legendary Saint. Such a mighty saint aura. I feel compelled to prostrate before him. I have been in the sect for so long and this is the very first time that I have the chance to see the master.”
“The master is the number one person in the sect. I heard that he is a Fourth Grade Minor Saint. His power is beyond our imaginations. I don’t think I have the chance to reach the grade of a Minor Saint in my entire life.”
“Even the master is alarmed. It seems that Jiang Chen is finished this time.”
“Correct. The Brilliant Mirror is destroyed. It is an unprecedented incident.”
Nebula Kidd’s appearance caused a wave of excitement from the crowd. Many disciples were looking at their master with admiration in their eyes. He was a legend, a Fourth Grade Minor Saint. Any ordinary person could not hope to reach that realm.
Hua Gu Yi and Feng Yun Brothers, including Cong Zhong Sheng and the inner sect elders, bowed before their master, none of them dared to neglect their master’s arrival. The rest of the disciples at the back followed them, they bowed together to pay their respect to their master.
“Master, this guy has destroyed the Brilliant Mirror during the checking…”
Feng Yun Yi said, but Nebula Kidd waved his hand and interrupted him. “I’m already informed. You’re called Jiang Chen?”
Nebula Kidd’s gaze fixed intently on Jiang Chen.
“The one who brought Liang Province into chaos?”
“That’s right, that’s me.”
Jiang Chen nodded. He never thought that Nebula Kidd had heard about him before. It seemed the incident had reached many places, even Nebula Kidd knew about this.
“What? The one who initiated disaster?”
“A Combat King who initiated disaster? I have heard some news about it. No wonder he is such a monster.”
“Except those who are advancing to be a Great Saint, they will initiate a saint catastrophe in the process. The normal catastrophe that is initiated are mostly by those who possess heaven defying talents. Jiang Chen is able to do that. It proves that he has a heaven defying talent. But I have no idea what’s his purpose in coming to Nebula Sect.”
Everyone was shocked. A genius that could initiate disaster was something they didn’t expect to see. His future wasn’t comparable to anyone but the fact remained, why was he here?
Nebula Kidd didn’t say a word. He waved his hand and a golden light appeared at the place where the broken pieces of the mirror lay. The pieces of Brilliant Mirror reformed and it went back to its original position in the blink of an eye.
Many people looked at it attentively. Nebula Kidd used the frame of the mirror to gather all the broken pieces and reconstructed it.
“The checking will continue. Jiang Chen, follow me.”
Nebula Kidd clawed in the air, a large magnetic force pulled Jiang Chen over. He was pulled up to the sky involuntarily. He didn’t attempt to fight back. He knew very well the frightening power of a Fourth Grade Minor Saint. His Ninth Grade Combat King’s power was only equivalent to ant to him.
Nebula Kidd left with lightning speed, bringing Jiang Chen along with him. After the excitement and shock the crowd had received, they couldn’t calm down, especially Lan Yi and those who followed Jiang Chen in the expedition. Their hearts were praying for his safety.
The Feng Yun brothers looked at one another and sighed simultaneously before they turned and left. Their effort to recruit their personal disciple had gone in vain today. Recruiting Jiang Chen as their apprentice was impossible now. They weren’t qualified to guide a heaven defying genius. As for what would happen to Jiang Chen later, it wouldn’t be their concern anymore as Nebula Kidd would take care of him. They had nothing to worry about now.
“Master, will big brother be okay?”
Zuo Ling Er looked at Huo Gu Yi, she clenched her fists tightly, while her eyes were full of concern.
“That will depend on his fate. Ling Er, there isn’t anything we can do here. Master will bring you to Summit Gu Yi.”
Hua Gu Yi said. Regarding what would happen to Jiang Chen next, she had no clue about it. Now, all her attention was on Ling Er. For all these years of cultivation, she had never met a genius like her. A twelve-year-old Ninth Grade Combat King. It couldn’t be explained by her diligence. One could be very diligent at cultivation and advancement, but still couldn’t reach the Ninth Grade Combat King at such a young age. The only explanation was her natural-born gift. As a Ninth Grade Combat Emperor, Hua Gu Yi would be able to see through her extraordinary physique and bones, truly a heaven defying genius.
“No way, I have to wait for my big brother here. He will be okay.”
Zuo Ling Er was firm, she shook her head in disagreement. Jiang Chen’s life and death was still unknown, how could she go to Summit Gu Yi with a peaceful mind? She wouldn’t be calm even if she went there. She would rather stand here and wait for her big brother to return safely. She believed that her big brother could go through anything, there wasn’t a thing that could go against him.
Hua Gu Yi sighed. Zuo Ling Er was determined to wait here. She had no choice but to follow. There were quite a lot of accidents that happened during the checking today, since the Feng Yun brothers had left, she would stay to guard the checking.
In a twinkle, Jiang Chen appeared in a main hall. This was the s.p.a.ce that existed and was built by Nebula Kidd himself. The place was solid and firm as it was built by a Fourth Grade Minor Saint. The hall was only a small building in the spatial zone of a Minor Saint though.
Nebula Kidd was sitting on a chair made from an unusual crystal. His eyes were cold while staring at Jiang Chen. But, Jiang Chen was clasping his hand behind his back and just stood there, his face was relaxed and calm, there wasn’t any sign of fright.
Nebula Kidd was surprised that a young man who was less than twenty years old would have such composure while facing him. It was truly rare because he could detect that Jiang Chen wasn’t attempting to act confidently in front of him. His composure came out naturally from within, as though there wasn’t anything that could make him nervous. His strong and extraordinary disposition was enough to triumph over any of the younger generation.
Jiang Chen didn’t fear him at all as he was once the Greatest Saint of the world. He didn’t know what ‘fear’ was. He hadn’t felt any murderous aura coming from Nebula Kidd. If Nebula Kidd wanted to kill him, he wouldn’t have brought him personally to this place. Of course, his defensive aura was never lowered, perhaps he wanted to find out what Jiang Chen’s true ident.i.ty before taking any action.
Jiang Chen didn’t have to be afraid that Nebula Kidd wanted to take his life. If he really did, Jiang Chen would unleash the Talisman of Origin given by Great Master Ran Feng. Nebula Kidd wouldn’t be able to defend himself from the attack, it would certainly kill him.
“You don’t feel afraid to see me?”
Nebula Kidd said.
“Why should I be afraid of you?”
Jiang Chen’s eyes met Nebula Kidd’s. He felt that this young man’s gaze wasn’t from any ordinary youngster. His eyes were full of wisdom and composure, as though he was an old freak who had lived for a thousand years. Also, Jiang Chen’s eyes revealed a sense of dignity, Nebula Kidd was impressed of how dignified his aura is. It sounded absurd but it could be felt from Jiang Chen’s body.
“Humph! You dare to speak to me in such a way. That is enough for your death. Speak. Who are you? Why are you here in my sect? And, what method did you use to destroy the Brilliant Mirror?”
Nebula Kidd asked. He would never believe that a Ninth Grade Combat King could shatter the Brilliant Mirror. There had to be some secrets hidden in this boy’s physique. His feeling became heavy when he thought of the recent battle. He had to come in person to make Jiang Chen’s ident.i.ty and purpose clear, if whether Jiang Chen was related to that mysterious man.
