The Moon Pavilion
Tenth regular chapter of the week!
The a.s.sa.s.sin let out a wail. According to the facts, powerful a.s.sa.s.sins who were nurtured by the Dark Shadow had a very strong will. Ordinary pain and torture wouldn’t be able to squeeze out a sound, but the damage that Ah Da inflicted wasn’t similar to ordinary injuries. When its sharp claw pierced into the a.s.sa.s.sin’s body, ghastly death Qi and corrosive power permeated into his body. That kind of suffering was akin to the suffering from h.e.l.l. It s.h.i.+vered one’s soul, not even the a.s.sa.s.sin of the Dark Shadow could endure it.
“Jiang Chen, I lost to you today. I admit my defeat, quickly kill me now.”
The a.s.sa.s.sin shouted harshly.
“I’m not against killing you. Tell me where the nearest stronghold of the Dark Shadow first, then i’ll kill you quickly. Otherwise, this dark soul still has more terrifying ways of torturing that will be inflicted upon your body. I told you that I have a lot of time here.”
Jiang Chen’s face revealed a faintly discernible smile. It made the a.s.sa.s.sin feel cold and frightened. Then, Jiang Chen’s gaze s.h.i.+fted, he looked at Ah Da. “Ah Da, break open his brain.”
“Don’t, I’ll talk.”
The a.s.sa.s.sin’s face was in horror and said with the quickest speed. He wasn’t an idiot and could clearly see the circ.u.mstances he was in. He was being controlled by a First Grade Minor Saint dark soul now, it means that he didn’t have the freedom to commit suicide, let alone fleeing. It was his fate to fail and die here. Since he had to die, why not die with without pain, or else, he would have to bear an endless torture.
“Jiang Chen, eight thousand miles from here is a Green Fluorescent City. There is a power called Moon Pavilion in the city, it is one of the strongholds. I have already told you. Kill me now.”
The a.s.sa.s.sin said. He had told the whereabouts of one of the strongholds to Jiang Chen. The reason he blurted out the information hastily, besides escaping from the torture of the dark soul was that there was a powerful First Grade Minor Saint guarding the stronghold. There were also many strong experts in there. Normally, people who intrude the stronghold were fundamentally seeking their own death. There were only four of them and even with the help of a powerful First Grade Minor Saint, it was merely a dream to destroy the stronghold of the Dark Shadow.
As long as Jiang Chen and the rest dared to go there, they wouldn’t even think about getting out alive. In that case, it would be considered that his revenge had been taken.
Jiang Chen said plainly. No one could tell lies in front of him. The eye’s expression couldn’t lie. He could discern it from the a.s.sa.s.sin’s eye that the a.s.sa.s.sin didn’t deceive him.
As Jiang Chen’s voice faded, Ah Da’s sharp claw shredded the a.s.sa.s.sin into pieces and he died on the spot. Then, Ah Da turned into a light ray and entered Jiang Chen’s spatial ring.
Jiang Chen turned and looked at Guo Shao Fei. “Have you heard about Green Fluorescent City before?”
“I have, it is similar to Dan Yuan City, it is also separated from the jurisdiction of the eight domains. Moon Pavilion is quite popular in Green Fluorescent City. It is a trading organization, it runs a business and has a very good reputation. I’ve never thought that it is one of the strongholds of the Dark Shadow. If it didn’t come out of the a.s.sa.s.sin’s mouth, I won’t definitely believe it.”
Guo Shao Fei was startled.
“Don’t underestimate the Dark Shadow. This is an a.s.sa.s.sination organization that is well versed in disguise.”
Jiang Chen said.
“This organization is too scary. It is exactly a nightmare to be targeted. What do you want to do next?”
Nangong Wentian looked at Jiang Chen.
“Eliminate their stronghold. If we fight, we have to fight back hard until they are in pain. Their bullying has touched my nerve now. I will let a portion of their flesh drop. If we don’t give them some surprises, they will think that I am a cowardly lion.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes were frosty. He was a person who defied laws and heaven. There was nothing that he didn’t dare to do. His relations.h.i.+p with the Dark Shadow had reached an irreparable degree, he should counter attack.
After hearing Jiang Chen’s words, Guo Shao Fei’s facial expression changed instantly, secretly admitting that Jiang Chen was too bold. As a genius of Mysterious Domain, he had heard rumors about the Dark Shadow’s a.s.sa.s.sins, but today was the first time he had a contact with one of them. Offending this a.s.sa.s.sination organization was equal to having nightmares every day. Nevertheless, today, Jiang Chen had decided to eliminate one of their strongholds, this was truly audacious.
“Junior Jiang, I think it is better to be extra careful. The stronghold of the Dark Shadow isn’t easy to deal with.”
Guo Shao Fei frowned.
“You scared s***? If they aren’t difficult to deal with, then it won’t be worth our time. The harder the thing is, the more motivated we are to eliminate it. We will go and pay a visit to this Dark Shadow organization. Master dog wants to see whether they really have three heads and six arms. Don’t forget, despite the invisibility and nightmares of the Dark Shadow, they have already lost three times to us.”
Big Yellow shook his st.u.r.dy tail. He was a being that was afraid of a peaceful world, there wasn’t a thing that he wouldn’t dare to do.
“Yeah, Dark Shadow is a nightmare to other people, but I will become their nightmare soon.”
Jiang Chen said coldly. From the moment this a.s.sa.s.sin appeared, he was determined to destroy one of their strongholds, and extinguished one of their powers.
“But, putting our capabilities of handling the Moon Pavilion aside, even if we successfully eliminated the stronghold, the news will spread to their headquarters. That would mean that more troubles will knock on our door next time. I’m afraid that it won’t be Ninth Grade Combat Emperor next time.”
Guo Shao Fei was worried. He wasn’t unreasonably worried though. After getting rid of the Moon Pavilion, they would certainly receive a frenzied revenge from the Dark Shadow. When that time comes, it would definitely be harder for them to live.
“Don’t worry, we will disguise ourselves. The Dark Shadow likes to attack secretly. We will act like them. We will strike today, killing all of the Dark Shadow’s a.s.sa.s.sins in the Moon Pavilion, not leaving a single person alive. Even if the headquarters of the Dark Shadow is very powerful, they won’t be able to find out who did that.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes were sparkling with cold light. Eliminating the power of the Moon Pavilion was a must and they had to do it silently. Once they had gotten rid of them, it would become a great loss to the Dark Shadow.
“Old Guo, why are you like a girl? Follow Little Chen, be decisive and never hesitate. If you are afraid, don’t come with us.”
Nangong Wentian patted Guo Shao Fei’s shoulder and said without caring about politeness.
It seemed that Guo Shao Fei had been looked down upon. How could he stand it? His Qi shook and said, “I will do it! Who said that I’m quitting? My life was saved by junior Jiang after all. I do not fear even if it is getting rid of the h.e.l.l king.”
“That’s the spirit!”
Nangong Wentian chuckled.
“Alright, in that case, we should head to Green Fluorescent City now.”
Jiang Chen always acted without delay, never once was he unclear in his decision. He brought the two men and a dog and changed their original direction from Dan Yuan City to Green Fluorescent City. As there were still some time before the selection of Wu Ningzhu’s husband, he should go and eliminate the obstacle first and then go back to Dan Yuan City, which wouldn’t delay any of their schedule.
On their journey to the Green Fluorescent City, Jiang Chen straight away absorbed the demon soul of the male lion. The demon soul of Ninth Grade Demon Emperor, as expected, wasn’t able to push his grade to the Sixth Grade Combat Emperor. Nonetheless, this was a Ninth Grade Demon Emperor’s soul after all, the pool of energy inside of it was huge. It had helped Jiang Chen in condensing a thousand five hundred dragon marks, making a total of forty nine thousand five hundred dragon marks now. He only needed five hundred more dragon marks to breakthrough to the Sixth Grade Combat Emperor.
“The advancement of the dragon transformation art becomes harder and harder. Every advancement requires huge amount of energy. A Ninth Grade Demon Emperor only allowed him to condense one thousand five hundred dragon marks. I haven’t reached the sixth grade yet. However, it has enhanced my combat strength by a notch. My current combat strength is sufficient enough to handle any Ninth Grade Combat Emperor. I just need one more Ninth Grade Demon Soul to hit the Sixth Grade Combat Emperor. When that time comes, none of the Ninth Grade Combat Emperors will be my opponent.”
Jiang Chen said to himself silently. Although his strength was raised by another notch, a worry weighed heavily in Jiang Chen’s mind due to the increasing difficulties of dragon transformation art. Every advancement of grade would require a very huge amount of energy. This indicated that Jiang Chen’s road of cultivation would become more difficult with every step he took.
Green Fluorescent City is a very prosperous big city. This was a hub between the two big domains. It was a city guarded by Minor Saint grade, people which was rarely seen even in the big domains. It was unparalleled to any ordinary cities.
By the time they reached the city, it was already right in the evening. A stretch of red glow appeared in the sky, but it dissipated very quickly.
They drifted in the sky outside the city, looking at this huge and splendid city. There wasn’t anything extraordinary besides its size and impressive buildings. However, in Jiang Chen’s eyes, he could sense a wave of murderous aura from within, although it was concealed. This aura wasn’t released deliberately, it was as if it was already integrated with the Qi of the entire city. Thus, the Qi of the city was like the murderous aura of those a.s.sa.s.sins he had met. They all came from their bones. They didn’t need to deliberately release their aura to send chills to people.
“There is a cold murderous aura here. It seems like the a.s.sa.s.sin didn’t lie to me. The Moon Pavilion is really one of the strongholds of the Dark Shadow.”
Jiang Chen confirmed.
“Little Chen, what do we do now? Launch an attack on them now?”
Nangong Wentian asked.
“Killing them straightaway now is absolutely not going to work. There are too many people in this city, immediate killings will create a very big ruckus. We will wait until the sky becomes dark and sneak into it. We will check the situation of the Moon Pavilion first. At that time, Big Yellow and I will jointly set the blanketing sky formation to secretly lock down the entire Moon Pavilion and then we can act.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes glittered. Even the night, couldn’t hide his excitement.
“Kaka, thinking about that really makes me feel good!”
Big Yellow laughed. His face was full of excitement. Guo Shao Fei who was beside him felt slightly nervous. The opponent they would be facing now was a powerful a.s.sa.s.sination organization after all. It was a legendary power. It would be impossible for him to be calm, but similarly, traces of excitement were seen on his face. He was afraid that he could only experience such an audacious act by following Jiang Chen.
