Chapter 997 – The Battle

The Battle

The 9th!

“Yes, we once have the Great Compa.s.sion Mantra which could rival the Great Devil Curse. Unfortunately, the Great Compa.s.sion Mantra appeared only in the heyday of Buddha Sect. After that, it vanished along with the Great Devil Curse. Now the Great Devil Curse has emerged once more but the supreme scriptures like the Great Compa.s.sion Mantra are long gone in the Buddha Sect.”

The abbot shook his head helplessly.

“If even the Buddha Sect could not deal with the Great Devil Curse… So, are we letting this kid continue flaunting his prowess? Why don’t I get rid of him right now for good?” said Narang Yunhe with a cruel face. He was still aggrieved after the tragic death of his genius.

“No, this is a compet.i.tion between geniuses. We can’t let the Devil Race mock our young generation, this will deal a great blow to the dignity of our race and our morale. My desire to kill him is even stronger than yours, for we have just lost a valuable genius.” Gu Firmament denied the idea immediately.

Given their cultivation base, killing Sang Ba would be as easy as raising their hands, however they couldn’t do so. If they did, it would hurt the Human Race’s reputation badly. Besides, the devil experts must be watching the battle in secret, they surely wouldn’t watch their genius get killed by their enemies.

“Then what should we do now? All the Sixth Grade Great Saint geniuses are here; two have already died and the others would also probably die if they were to confront this brat. However, we can’t just let this brat show off his existence here, it is very damaging to our morale.”

Indignation filled Narang Yunhe’s face.

“Yes, we can’t, but it seems like you have forgotten about one man, Gu Chen—the genius who has risen from Gu Palace. I believe he could kill Sang Ba.” Somebody said.

He was without a doubt Desolate Wuleng. The corner of his mouth revealed a cold smirk. His intention for suggesting Gu Chen’s name was pretty obvious.

“No way. That Gu Chen is merely a Third Grade Great Saint genius. He could not match Sang Ba regardless of how powerful he is.”

Narang Yunhe waved his hand in disapproval.

“It seems like you all don’t know that Gu Chen is an unparalleled genius. He has just advanced to the Fourth Grade Great Saint, and killed Desolate Changfeng in a recent battle,” said Desolate Wuleng. He couldn’t help but grit his teeth when he thought of Desolate Changfeng’s death.

“What? Gu Chen has killed Desolate Changfeng? How is that possible?”

“Anyone should know that Desolate Changfeng is a peak Sixth Grade Great Saint expert. Even if Gu Chen had advanced to the fourth grade, it is still impossible for him to kill Desolate Changfeng.”

“That man is truly horrifying. It must be true as this came from an elder. Besides, we haven’t seen Desolate Changfeng for several days now. If he was still alive, he would have appeared in this special occasion.”


Many of them were shocked by this remark. If this didn’t come from the mouth of Desolate Wuleng, they would never believe it. For an instant, all eyes fell upon Gu Palace’s group.

“I’m afraid that Gu Chen defeating Desolate Changfeng only proves that he is the only one that can defeat Sang Ba. Master of Gu Palace, this is a matter of our race’s honour. I hope that you can summon Gu Chen here as quickly as possible.” Desolate Wuleng clasped his fists at Gu Firmament and said.

After witnessing the horrifyingness of Sang Ba, especially the Great Devil Curse, he strongly believed that Gu Chen probably wouldn’t be that young devil’s opponent either. Although he hadn’t witnessed how Gu Chen killed Desolate Changfeng, he knew that battle lasted for a period of time. In other words, it wasn’t easy for Gu Chen to kill Desolate Changfeng.

But then again, the geniuses who confronted Sang Ba were instantly killed. Whether it was Narang Yu or Gu Shuangtan, who were both on par with Desolate Changfeng, they were both eaten by Sang Ba alive. Although Jiang Chen was very strong, if he could not counter the Great Devil Curse, they were afraid that he would face the same result. This was the best opportunity to erase the existence of Jiang Chen.

The higher ups of Gu Palace glared at Desolate Wuleng. What this old man said was abominable. The idea he suggested worried them. After losing Gu Shuangtan, they didn’t wish to lose another great genius—Gu Chen. Otherwise, Gu Palace would suffer a considerable loss. One should know that Gu Chen had already become the hope and future of Gu Family as well asGu Palace.

“Master of Gu Palace, if only Gu Chen has the capability to fight Sang Ba, then we should let him confront this devil. Or else, we won’t be able to control the situation,” said Narang Yunhe.

Gu Firmament looked over at Gu Zheng and said, “Gu Zheng, get Gu Chen here.”

“Palace Master, this is…”

Gu Zheng frowned, getting Gu Chen at this moment would only get him killed. Gu Zheng didn’t have the slightest bit of certainty that Gu Chen could survive the fight against Sang Ba.

“Go now, Gu Chen needs this kind of training,” said Gu Firmament.

He knew the true ident.i.ty of Gu Chen and his transformation technique. After Jiang Chen advanced to the Fourth Grade Great Saint, he believed that there wouldn’t be any accidents even if Jiang Chen failed to defeat Sang Ba.


Gu Zheng turned and left after darting a glare at Desolate Wuleng.

“Haha! Is the Human Race short of geniuses? Of all the geniuses in Saint Origin Palace, none of you has the guts to fight me? Is seems like your race has really declined, the Devil Race is surely destined to rule the whole world.” Sang Ba said, laughed, and sneered.

He unleashed an overwhelming devil force with every line that he spoke, which reduced the morale of the human race’s army severely. If no human genius would accept the challenge of this devil in a couple of moments, their morale would fall even more.

“I have no idea when Gu Chen will arrive. Sang Ba certainly hurt our fighting spirit,” said Heavenly Peng King.

“Oh, I just remembered something. Back then, Ancestor Greenlotus once obtained a supreme scripture of Buddha Sect. It was probably the long-lost Great Compa.s.sion Mantra.” The abbot said.

Hearing the name of Ancestor Greenlotus, Desolate Emperor’s facial expression revealed some awkwardness, but it was covered up very quickly.

“Abbot, what’s the use of saying this? Ancestor Greenlotus already died a hundred years ago,” said the palace master of s.h.i.+ Palace.

“I wouldn’t dare comment whether Ancestor Greenlotus is dead or not, but as far as I know, Ancestor Greenlotus has left his inheritance in Greenlotus Mountain. The mountain which his disciple, Great Monk Ran Feng, has been guarding. If I’m not mistaken, the Great Compa.s.sion Mantra is in his possession. If he’s willing to hand over that mantra, we will be able to restrain this devil genius,” said the abbot.

It was part of his calculations. Anyone should know that Great Lightning Tune Temple had expended enormous efforts to try and get the inheritance of Ancestor Greenlotus, however, Great Monk Ran Feng insisted in his refusal.

Thus, today’s event produced a reasonable excuse for them to seek Great Monk Ran Feng again.

“All right. We’ll send a message to Greenlotus Mountain.”

Gu Firmament immediately sent out a signal to Greenlotus Mountain via divine sense. He was neither an enemy nor a friend of Ancestor Greenlotus. If Great Compa.s.sion Mantra was really in Greenlotus Mouuntain, it might be able to help Jiang Chen in the battle.

Greenlotus Mountain. During the truce, Tyrant, Great Monk Ran Feng, Han Yan and Yan Chenyu had been waiting. Instead of going to Great Lightning Tune Temple, they had formed an independent team.

Simultaneously, everyone received the message sent by Gu Firmament, which also informed them about the situation in the Great Lightning Tune Temple.

“I didn’t expect that such a terrifying genius from the Devil Race has appeared. Not even a peak Sixth Grade Great Saint genius of Saint Origin Palace could fight him,” said Han Yan.

“That was because of the Great Devil Curse which had been lost for a very long time. I hadn’t thought that it will appear once more. Sang Ba’s ability to wield the Great Devil Curse proves his extraordinary talent. Now, Saint Origin Palace is demanding us to hand over the supreme scripture of Buddha Sect—Great Compa.s.sion Mantra. However, there was no such mantra amongst the inheritance left by my master,” said Great Monk Ran Feng.

“That’s right. I have obtained the three Dharma Seals left by my grandmaster and some scriptures, but not the Great Compa.s.sion Mantra. However, I would like to meet this devil genius and see how powerful he actually is.” Tyrant’s said, while his Qi shook.

His was now Sixth Grade Great Saint, and moreover, the cultivation he practiced belonged to Buddha Sect, which was the natural enemy of the Devil Race. As such, he was quite confident in fighting against Sang Ba even without the Great Compa.s.sion Mantra.

“Don’t underestimate your enemy. You have no idea how terrifying the Great Devil Curse is.” Great Monk Ran Feng said in a worried tone.

“Master, my entire body is filled with the strength of Buddha and has absorbed the Sarira that was combined with grandmaster’s Immortal Soul. If I didn’t even dare fight the genius of the Devil Race, wouldn’t it put Master and Grandmaster’s reputation to shame? I will go and meet this devil now.”

After finis.h.i.+ng his words, he vanished.

“We should also go and have a look,” said Han Yan.

Then, he, Yan Chenyu and Great Monk Ran Feng followed suit. Now that a terrifying genius from the Devil Race had emerged, they couldn’t help but want to know more about the power of the devil.

“I have come to fight you.”

Tyrant looked at Sang Ba, and at the same time, unleashed his powerful Qi.

“Where did this young monk come from? He has already reached the Sixth Grade Great Saint. It is really unexpected to see such a terrifying genius in the Great Lightning Tune Temple.”

“That’s right. I thought they said that the Buddha Sect has declined tremendously? I didn’t expect to see such a talent too. Even though Buddha Sect has been the natural enemy of the Devil Race, I’m still not sure whether this young monk can defeat Sang Ba.”


Tyrant’s emergence made many pairs of eyes sparkle.

“He’s Tyrant, the disciple of Great Monk Ran Feng. I never thought that he has already grown to such a horrifying extent.”

The abbot of Great Lightning Tune Temple had a look of shock and disbelief on his face.

“It turns out that he is a descendant of Ancestor Greenlotus. Perhaps he has already inherited the inheritance of Ancestor Greenlotus and possibly the Great Compa.s.sion Mantra.”

Gu Firmament’s eyes glittered. In his heart, he was impatiently hoping that this young monk could eliminate Sang Ba so that Jiang Chen didn’t have to fight him.

However, it was still a question whether Tyrant could eliminate Sang Ba because even Tyrant himself was not sure about this.
