Chapter 97 – Nan Bei Chao Revolts
Li Wu Shuang’s body was cut in half and fell down onto the fighting stage. Blood and internal organs were smeared all over the stage, and the pungent smell of blood was being emitted. This cruel and gory scene was enough to send s.h.i.+vers down anyone’s spine.
Everyone’s expressions changed. Just how insane was this guy? When he wanted to kill someone, not even Liang Xiao was able to stop him. This guy was crazy, it was as if there was no one in this world he didn’t dare to kill. Even though Li Wu Shuang was the son of the Heavenly Sword Sect Chief, he still showed no mercy.
Liang Xiao was furious, he was a Late Heavenly Core warrior, but he couldn’t save a man from the hands of a Mortal Core warrior. To him, this was humiliating.
In order to get rid of this humiliation, the best method was to tear Jiang Chen into a million pieces.
Jiang Chen’s blood wings flapped as he flew up into the sky once again. He didn’t want to fight Liang Xiao right now. After all, with his current strength, a Late Heavenly Core genius was not someone he could deal with.
“Die for me!”
Liang Xiao was not going to give up. He flew towards Jiang Chen with extreme speed while unleas.h.i.+ng the aura of a Late Heavenly Core warrior. If he attacked with all his might, even with the blood wings, Jiang Chen wouldn’t be able to escape.
“Liang Xiao, how dare you break the rules of this compet.i.tion?! Who gave you the authority?!”
Guan Yi Yun moved as well. He appeared in front of Liang Xiao, completely blocking his way.
“Guan Yi Yun, get the f.u.c.k out of my way! I’m going to kill him.”
Liang Xiao shouted in anger.
“Liang Xiao, do you want to lose all your f.u.c.king face? Don’t forget your current ident.i.ty, Jiang Chen is the victor of this compet.i.tion, and he’s not someone you can kill as you wis.h.!.+ Li Wu Shuang is dead because he didn’t admit defeat! Running up on stage and attacking a partic.i.p.ant? What’s wrong with you? If you really do this, then, in future, there’s no need to have the Qi Province compet.i.tion again!”
Guan Yi Yun also wouldn’t give up. At this moment, if he didn’t protect Jiang Chen, Jiang Chen would not be able to leave the Whirling Sun Square today.
“I want to kill a rogue cultivator, do I need a reason for that? A rogue cultivator like him does not deserve first place in this compet.i.tion!”
Liang Xiao couldn’t control his anger.
“According to the rules, Jiang Chen is allowed to choose a sect and join it! Once he joins a sect, he won’t be a rogue cultivator anymore!”
Guan Yi Yun said. He turned around and looked at Jiang Chen, “Jiang Chen, I wish to invite you to the Black Sect, are you willing to join us?”
Jiang Chen smiled. Of course he was willing to join them. Since the situation had become like this, if he didn’t join the Black Sect, even if he was able to escape today, there won’t be any way for him to survive in the Qi Province. Furthermore, he probably wouldn’t get the rewards for winning if he refused.
“Did you hear that? From now on, Jiang Chen is an outer circle disciple of our Black Sect! Anyone who dares to attack him will be my, Guan Yi Yun’s, enemy!”
Guan Yi Yun’s voice was loud and clear. Everyone in the square could hear him.
“Liang Xiao is too much, he really doesn’t care about his own image. Li Wu Shuang never admitted defeat, it was him who was courting death! This can’t be blamed on Jiang Chen! Besides, this is a fighting stage of life and death!”
“That’s right! Now that Jiang Chen has joined the Black Sect, he has found a strong pillar! Perhaps we’ll be able to witness more things today!”
“Indeed! This year’s Qi Province compet.i.tion has the biggest dark horse, Jiang Chen! He is also the cause of all this havoc! Nan Bei Chao has yet to speak a word, but he definitely won’t let Jiang Chen go! If Nan Bei Chao insists on attacking, Guan Yi Yun wouldn’t be able to stop him!”
Many people were discussing the events. Now that Jiang Chen had taken the first place, it meant that the Qi Province compet.i.tion had been concluded. However, it was obvious that something even more exciting was coming up, a good show was about to begin.
Jiang Chen could be considered famous after the fights he had today, and his name would definitely be heard across the entire Qi Province. Today, he had killed Ling Ao as well as Li Wu Shuang, and even made Yi Qing Zi admit defeat. It would be very hard for him to keep a low profile in the future.
At this moment, the Little Devil King Han Yan had regained consciousness. He had temporarily suppressed the demonic characteristic in his body, and then he saw the scene where Jiang Chen had killed Li Wu Shuang, which shocked him deeply. Right now, Jiang Chen had fallen into a difficult situation, so of course he would need to help him.
“Everybody listen up! From now on, Jiang Chen will be my, the Little Devil King’s friend for life! Those who want to trouble with him will be my, Han Yan’s, enemy until death!”
The Little Devil King had clearly stated his stance on the matter, he wanted to protect Jiang Chen at all cost. No one would ever underestimate the Little Devil King. Although the Little Devil King was only a peak Mortal Core warrior, everyone knew that when the Ancient Devil’s power awakened, his cultivation level would increase exponentially. His talent and potential were not any less than Guan Yi Yun or even Nan Bei Chao. Besides, behind the Little Devil King was the Black Sect, who would dare take him lightly?
Jiang Chen’s blood wings flapped, he landed amongst the disciples of the Black Sect, and immediately attracted countless malicious gazes from the disciples of both the Burning Sky Pavilion and the Heavenly Sword Sect. However, the reactions from the Black Sect’s disciples were completely different, many of them immediately gathered around him.
“Congratulations senior disciple Jiang, you’re now part of our Black Sect!”
“Senior disciple Jiang has some magnificent tricks up his sleeve! Even Li Wu Shuang was killed by you! I hope senior disciple Jiang can take care of us in the future!”
“That’s right! Senior disciple Jiang’s talent is unparalleled, it’s even greater than Nan Bei Chao’s! You’ll definitely be able to become the Black Sect’s future hope!”
The disciples of the Black Sect all started flattering Jiang Chen when they saw him. They weren’t idiots, with Jiang Chen’s performance today, once he arrives at the Black Sect, the management would definitely pay lots of attention to him. Besides, Jiang Chen’s potential was limitless, his future achievements couldn’t be imagined, and now was the right time to start building a good relations.h.i.+p with him.
Liang Xiao was so angry that his teeth were grinding against each other. Guan Yi Yun had blocked his way, there was nothing else he could do. Besides, the compet.i.tion was now over. If he really attacked the champion, it would affect his status. Furthermore, Jiang Chen was a Black Sect disciple now, and according to the rules of the Qi Province compet.i.tion, after the compet.i.tion ended, all the disciples from the four big sects were not allowed to fight each other within Whirling Sun Square.
After all, the Qi Province compet.i.tion was a symbolic event for the Qi Province, tens of thousands of people were watching the compet.i.tion. If fights broke out, the consequences would be unimaginable.
“Nan Bei Chao, do you still not want to make the announcement?”
Guan Yi Yun stared at Nan Bei Chao from afar.
Nan Bei Chao had a grim expression. He looked at Jiang Chen with a cold and penetrating gaze, then loudly announced, “I hereby declare that the champion of the outer circle Qi Province compet.i.tion belongs to Jiang Chen from the Black Sect.”
Nan Bei Chao actually said it. This made many people feel puzzled. All of them thought that even if Nan Bei Chao didn’t kill Jiang Chen, he would surely give him trouble. They never expected him to announce Jiang Chen’s result in the Qi Province compet.i.tion so easily.
“Aiya, father’s four hundred Mortal Restoration Pills… That d.a.m.n dog really took advantage of me!” (1)
“The heavens are blind, that Jiang Chen really became the champion! That Li Wu Shuang was too lousy, he wasted the emotions and hopes this father had for him.”
“d.a.m.n it, that d.a.m.n dog made a really big fortune this time!”
All of those who bet with Big Yellow were so p.i.s.sed off that knocked their heads on the floor. Especially those who had bet a second time with Big Yellow, they were so regretful that their faces had turned green.
Nan Bei Chao took out a storage bag and tossed it over to Jiang Chen. Many people looked at Jiang Chen with envy, they all knew that inside the storage bag were the rewards for this compet.i.tion. A mid-ranked combat weapon, a storage ring, and a Thousand Year Old Earth Fruit.
Jiang Chen opened up the storage bag, a s.h.i.+ning long sword immediately presented itself to him. Next to the sword was a light-blue storage ring glowing with a faint light, and next to the storage ring was a box made from jade stone. Weak energy waves flowed around the box. Inside the box, was the Earth Fruit.
Jiang Chen sent out his Divine Sense and injected it into the storage ring. The storage ring immediately flew out from the storage bag. At the same time, with a thought, the long sword and Earth Fruit entered the storage ring. Jiang Chen took the storage ring and placed it on his finger, then he threw the storage bag aside.
Within the storage ring, there was a s.p.a.ce the size of at least two houses, which was enough to store items for now. Besides, the storage ring was controlled by Divine Sense, different from those low level storage bags that were opened using Yuan energy.
If it was his past life, Jiang Chen wouldn’t even take a look at this kind of storage ring, but considering his current situation, this storage ring wasn’t bad.
“Congratulations brother Jiang.”
The Little Devil King cupped his fists towards Jiang Chen.
“Save your congratulations for later, things have yet to end.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile. He knew things would not end just like this, Nan Bei Chao was not going to let him off so easily.
Indeed, Nan Bei Chao showed Jiang Chen a grin, then he announced, “I hereby declare the Qi Province compet.i.tion officially over! But now, I need to settle some private matters!”
After Nan Bei Chao finished speaking, no one saw any movement, but he had arrived in front of Jiang Chen like a ghost.
Nan Bei Chao’s imposing manner was brutal and unreasonable, an intense aura of superiority was unleashed on Jiang Chen.
Nan Bei Chao’s movement caused some turmoil, things really hadn’t come to an end.
“Nan Bei Chao is sure to act out violently! Now that the Qi Province compet.i.tion is finished, he wants to deal with Jiang Chen using his personal ident.i.ty! Jiang Chen is now in great danger!”
“Guan Yi Yun is able to stop Liang Xiao, but he won’t be able to stop Nan Bei Chao!”
“The four big sects set a rule stating that after the compet.i.tion, no one is allowed to fight in the Whirling Sun Square! Nan Bei Chao, this is against the rules!”
The crowds started boiling once again. Everyone was looking at Jiang Chen while trying to guess how he was going to deal with Nan Bei Chao. This arrogant person wasn’t someone easy to deal with.
“Nan Bei Chao, what are you doing?!”
Guan Yi Yun immediately moved and positioned himself between Jiang Chen and Nan Bei Chao, and stared at Nan Bei Chao angrily.
“Loser, f.u.c.k off.”
A strong wave of energy was unleashed from Nan Bei Chao’s body, it pushed towards Guan Yi Yun and forced him to take two steps back.
Everyone sighed, this Nan Bei Chao was just too strong. Even the powerful Guan Yi Yun was not his match. Some people still remembered that day when Nan Bei Chao fought Guan Yi Yun. He only needed to use a single strike to defeat Guan Yi Yun, creating history that couldn’t be replicated.
“Jiang Chen, kneel before me!”
Nan Bei Chao said with an incomparably domineering aura.
“Nan Bei Chao, Jiang Chen is the disciple of our Black Sect! You dare to mess around and disobey the rules set down by the four big sects?!”
Guan Yi Yun didn’t back off. If he couldn’t protect Jiang Chen today, then no one would be able to protect him. Nan Bei Chao could squish Jiang Chen to death with a single finger.
“Rules? When I, Nan Bei Chao, wants to kill someone, there’s no use talking about rules! Don’t try to use rules to restrict me, if you don’t get out of my way, I’ll kill both of you together!”
Nan Bei Chao’s domineering aura frightened everyone present.
