The devil Qi of the earth devil beast was rushed speedily to the sky. It opened its large b.l.o.o.d.y mouth that could swallow everything. The devil Qi that dashed out of its mouth looked as deadly as sharp blades while lunging at Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen facial expression changed drastically. The Second Grade Great Saint earth devil beast was totally beyond his ability to handle. Although he could defeat ordinary First Grade Great Saints, Second Grade Great Saints were still too powerful for him. As a matter of fact, a Second Grade Great Saint earth devil beast was as powerful as an ordinary Third Grade Great Saint. There was no way that he could compensate the gap between the two of them.
Jiang Chen groaned silently while circulating the dragon transformation art to the maximum. He attempted to circulate the blood talisman but it was still as stubborn and unresponsive as before. It gave Jiang Chen the urge to curse it.
In the moment of helplessness, Jiang Chen drew out his Heavenly Saint Sword to defend himself.
The powerful and sharp Heavenly Saint Sword couldn’t match the earth devil beast. If Jiang Chen wasn’t quick enough, he would’ve been devoured by the earth devil beast alive. It is undeniably true that this king of devils isn’t someone that you would want to deal with.
Jiang Chen was sent flying away for over ten steps. He felt that the Qi and blood in his body were surging unpleasantly. It was a feeling that he couldn’t put into words. A trickle of blood flowed out from the corner of his mouth.
“Motherf*cker! I’m no match for this giant guy. If I couldn’t use the blood talisman, I can only run. It would be impossible to subdue this earth devil beast with Edifying Light given my current strength.” Jiang Chen cursed and was frustrated.
He initially thought that the blood talisman would be able to help him, but now, it seemed like his hope was all in vain.
“Good, a Seventh Grade Minor Saint boy is still alive after receiving my attack. You should already be proud even if you die.”
The earth devil beast swayed and turned into a middle-aged brawny man. He had a majestic look, his domineering aura dashed to the sky and his face was filled with ferociousness. This was the king of devils, a matchless being among the devils. It was a rare species; this was only the second earth devil beast that he had ever seen across the entire Saint Origin World.
The earth devil beast moved again. The human earth devil beast had sealed the entire void. He struck out a large, black palm the size of a hill, crus.h.i.+ng down on Jiang Chen. If a person received this attack head-on, the outcome would be unimaginable.
However, Jiang Chen was proficient in Spatial s.h.i.+ft. It wouldn’t be easy for the earth devil beast to kill him. He could in fact run away from it using the Spatial s.h.i.+ft, but he gritted his teeth and stayed in his position, unmoving. He was betting, betting that the blood talisman in his Qi Sea wouldn’t turn a blind eye to his circ.u.mstance.
He was sure that the blood talisman was related to the dragon transformation art. He was a cultivator of the dragon transformation art, the master. He had witnessed the power of the blood talisman before. He was sure that if the blood talisman attacked, it would certainly suppress the earth devil beast. So, this was the thing that he was betting on. He bet that the blood talisman wouldn’t want to see him die under the hands of the earth devil beast.
As much as he wanted to bet, he might as well go all in. He held the Heavenly Saint Sword in his hand but did not make a single move or gesture to defend himself.
This was an unrestrained gamble, and he used his life as the bet. If the blood talisman was still not going to respond, his consequences would be disastrous.
The blood talisman didn’t disappoint Jiang Chen. When he felt a tremendous amount of danger, the blood talisman flew out of his body and turned into a blood light. It didn’t look very divine but it pulverised the earth devil beast’s attack with ease. Subsequently, the blood talisman flew towards the head of the earth devil beast, a b.l.o.o.d.y light shone from above and formed a blood-red giant net, wrapping the earth devil beast within.
Jiang Chen let out a sigh of relief. This sn.o.bbish boss finally reacted. Back in purgatory, it was because of the blood talisman that no demon beasts dared to take a step into the purgatory. It only showed how powerful the blood talisman is in suppressing demon beasts. It was also the reason they succeeded in killing the earth devil beast in the purgatory.
“What is this thing? I can feel some kind of desolate and ancient existence in it. It gives me the urge to wors.h.i.+p it. The shapeless energy that is released from this talisman suffocates me.” The earth devil beast facial expression changed drastically.
It glared at the blood talisman. The blood talisman was like an ancient ancestor of all the demon beasts, it could subdue all of them. Although it was a devil, it was also a demon beast. Currently, it was suppressed by the blood-red cage firmly. Its soul was s.h.i.+vering as if it had offended a mighty G.o.d. It felt that it was going to die soon. So, how could it still manage to kill Jiang Chen?
“The chance has come.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes sparkled. This moment was his best chance. With a sway, he reached the earth devil beast. He circulated the Great Soul Derivation Technique and shouted, “Earth Devil Beast!”
The suppressed earth devil beast was pounded by the Great Soul Derivation Technique, causing it to lose its consciousness temporarily. It raised its head unconsciously, and saw a serpent-like light swoosh into the spot between it brows.
Then, the earth devil beast felt like a spell had been marked in its deepest soul. It resisted intensely and howled uncontrollably and helplessly. Despite its power, it was still unable to resist the pressure of the blood talisman and the Edifying Light. It would be subdued completely in no time.
Jiang Chen’s big claw moved in a grabbing motion, and kept the blood talisman. It returned to its usual spot in his Qi Sea and stayed there like a boss, but Jiang Chen’s impression towards it was slightly better now. He was feeling a lot better than the previous times because if it wasn’t for this boss, he would be doomed.
The earth devil beast howled non-stop. The wild and intractable Qi on its body vanished. It now looked as tame as a sheep. It bowed to Jiang Chen and called him respectfully, “Master.”
“Haha! Good.” Jiang Chen laughed pleasantly.
Today was truly a great and lucky day. The Dark Shadow had just given him a great gift not long after he left the Gu Family. It also allowed him to understand the power of the blood talisman.
With this earth devil beast by his side, it would be impossible for any a.s.sa.s.sin to make an attempt on his life.
“Earth devil beast, what are you doing?”
From a distance, the elder a.s.sa.s.sin of the Dark Shadow instantly changed his expression. Things happened too quickly. He initially thought that the earth devil beast would be able to get rid of Jiang Chen with ease, and had not thought that something like this would occur. He heard it clearly, the earth devil beast has just called Jiang Chen ‘Master’. The earth devil beast must be seriously joking.
Yet, the earth devil beast turned a deaf ear to the elder’s words. It moved and stood beside Jiang Chen.
“Earth devil beast, what the f*ck are you doing? Kill him now!”
The elder roared, but he wasn’t a fool. He was able to discern the changes in the earth devil beast. He guessed that it must be Jiang Chen’s doing that something like this happened.
“Earth devil beast, kill him!”
Jiang Chen extended his finger and pointed at the elder.
Without saying another word, a mighty devil Qi was unleashed from its body. It had returned to its previous devil-king state in an instant. It lunged at the elder. It wouldn’t dare defy Jiang Chen’s commands. Even if Jiang Chen wanted it dead, it would still follow the command without hesitation.
“Earth devil beast…”
The elder’s eyeb.a.l.l.s nearly popped out of its socket. He felt that something unbelievable had just happened to the earth devil beast. It was supposed to be his friend, his a.s.sistant, but after a few blinks, it turned into his enemy. What on earth actually happened?
The devil beast’s attack was only an inch away from him but he was still calling out for it. He had no choice but to defend. A long and chilling sword that was used to kill appeared in his hand and he slashed at the devil beast.
Unfortunately, how could he possibly be an opponent for the earth devil beast? The earth devil beast was just too strong. Even though both of them were at the Second Grade Great Saint realm, their combat strength varied greatly. Plus, the elder was an a.s.sa.s.sin but was fighting in the open now. The higher ups of the Dark Shadow had sent him with the earth devil beast. But then, it seemed like he had brought an enemy with him.
He was thrown far away after their initial collision and landed three hundred meters away. He opened his mouth and spurted a mouthful of blood. A Second Grade Great Saint was definitely no match for the earth devil beast.
The earth devil beast was indifferent about the elder’s emotions, it was doing its best to complete the task given by its master. Without saying a word, it made another lunge at the elder.
“What the h.e.l.l? What has happened? Jiang Chen, what did you do to the earth devil beast?”
The elder spurted out blood. This time it was because of anger. He didn’t know what spell Jiang Chen used to control the earth devil beast. Facing the earth devil beast gave him the feeling that thousands of alpaca was galloping in his heart, he couldn’t put it into words.
“Haha! I have to thank the Dark Shadow for giving me this great present – earth devil beast. What are you waiting for? Kill him!” Jiang Chen laughed in delight and commanded the earth devil beast again.
The earth devil beast turned frenzied in a second. Surging energy erupted out from its body, it once again lunged at the elder wildly. The elder was wailing continuously. If he chose to flee in the very beginning, he would’ve been able to escape from the grip of the earth devil beast, given the speed of a Second Grade Great Saint, but he was severely injured now. It had become impossible for him to go anywhere that was out of the earth devil beast’s sight.
The sharp claw of the earth devil beast grabbed and clutched the elder. The severely injured elder was unable to struggle himself free from the grip of the beast.
“Earth devil beast, f*ck you!”
The elder swore loudly. His death today was an aggrieved death.
