Chapter 112 – Meeting the Sect Chief
Li Wu Ling’s dead body and head fell down from the sky together with a large amount of blood. The scene looked pathetic underneath the bright shine of the morning sunlight. Li Wu Ling, who had just broken through to the Heavenly Core realm by forcefully cultivating a demonic skill, and Jiang Chen who had condensed 40 Dragon Marks; the two of them were simply not on the same level. Jiang Chen didn’t even use his Axe of Thunder.
Amongst the crowds, Huang Zheng shouted out loudly.
“Almighty senior disciple Jiang!”
Wang Yun also shouted out loudly. Not only the two of them, at this point of time, all the disciples who witnessed how Jiang Chen killed Li Wu Ling couldn’t hold their excitement. An outer circle disciple from the Black Sect had killed an inner circle disciple from the Heavenly Sword Sect, this was glorious for the Black Sect.
After Guan Yi Yun, who was the pride of the Black Sect, was defeated by Nan Bei Chao with just a single attack, it had left a shadow in the minds of all the Black Sect disciples. Ever since then, whenever someone mentioned the Burning Sky Pavilion, they had felt lower than them.
However, with Jiang Chen’s performance today, they had seen the future hope for the Black Sect. It had removed the shadows in their minds. This was a super genius, even Nan Bei Chao would have not been able to kill a Heavenly Core warrior while only at the Mid Mortal Core realm.
Therefore, although Jiang Chen was only an outer circle disciple, he had lifted the spirits of all the Black Sect disciples, and he had become one of the Black Sect’s representatives. In many of these disciples’ minds, the Black Sect had finally found someone who could fight Nan Bei Chao.
“This man has a limitless future, I can never be like him.”
Duan Li murmured to himself. Right now, only an idiot would be unable to see Jiang Chen’s huge potential.
“Fellow disciples, please help me spread these words! From now on, whichever Heavenly Sword Sect disciple dares provoke me, I will kill him!”
While floating in the air, Jiang Chen said with a voice that could be clearly heard by every single disciple of the Black Sect. After that, he flapped his blood wings and flew back into the Black Sect, disappearing in front of everyone.
Kill anyone who dares provoke him, this was so domineering, so arrogant! There was not a single person in the entire Qi Province who dares to say something this heroic. Setting an entire sect as his enemy, this was an absolute bold statement. And he, Jiang Chen, was the first one who dared to say this.
“So domineering! He is truly amazing! From now on, senior disciple Jiang will be my idol!”
“Senior disciple Han Yan was my only idol, but from now on, I have one more idol! In the future, both of them will be my goal!”
“Guys, let’s spread senior disciple Jiang’s words! We’ll let those guys from the Heavenly Sword Sect know that we, the Black Sect, are not to be provoked!”
Under the lead of Wang Yun and Huang Zhen, the atmosphere amongst all the Black Sect disciples became heated. Jiang Chen’s arrogant and domineering manner didn’t make any of them feel disgusted, instead, it had made him become an idol for many of the disciples.
“Senior disciple Duan, this junior disciple Jiang Chen is really an incredibly strong man, he killed Li Wu Ling just like that. However, in my opinion, Li Wu Ling had just broken through to the Heavenly Core realm, and his foundation was unstable, so he couldn’t be compared with real Heavenly Core warriors. If we were to fight with Jiang Chen, who do you think would win?”
One of the Early Heavenly Core disciples came to Duan Li and asked.
Duan Li gazed at the disciple and said, “I can’t say for sure who would win if you fought Jiang Chen, but let me tell you this; do not provoke him, this man is not simple.”
Duan Li reminded him out of kindness, then he flew back to the Black Sect. The other two Early Heavenly Core disciples looked at each other, then they too flew back to the Black Sect.
“Huang Zheng, ask someone to burn Li Wu Ling’s body. The rest of you, dismiss yourself and go back to what you were doing.”
Wang Yun told Huang Zhen, then he waved his hand at those who were gathered here. The incident had finally come to an end.
The Qi Province competition had given Jiang Chen his fame, and today’s battle had given Jiang Chen the opportunity to show his might in the Black Sect. Personally witnessing events always left more impact than hearing it from someone else. After killing Li Wu Ling today, Jiang Chen had established his unshakable position in the Black Sect.
After killing Li Wu Ling, Jiang Chen went straight back to his residence. He stood on the mountaintop, gentle breeze waving through his white clothes. He wore a calm expression, he was already used to killing. Jiang Chen knew the path he was going to walk, and in the future, there would be more people he would have to kill.
Half an hour later, a man suddenly landed beside Jiang Chen. It was Guan Yi Yun.
“Junior disciple Jiang, from your energy frequency I can tell that you have broken through to the Mid Mortal Core realm! Also, I just heard that you killed Li Wu Ling, a Heavenly Core warrior! You’re amazing, you became an idol for so many disciples so quickly!”
The news of Jiang Chen fighting Li Wu Ling had spread across the entire Black Sect, even those disciples from the inner circle who hadn’t been at the scene had gotten the news.
“Senior disciple Guan, weren’t you in secluded meditation in order to break through to the Divine Core realm? Why did you stop cultivating so quickly?”
Jiang Chen was startled. He threw an examining look at Guan Yi Yun, but he found out that Guan Yi Yun was still at the peak of the Heavenly Core realm. Obviously, his secluded meditation hadn’t been successful.
“It is not that easy to break through to the Divine Core realm. I had given it a thorough thought, and secluded cultivation alone won’t help me. In order to break through, I’ll need to find an opportunity. I’ll leave the Black Sect tomorrow to search for the opportunity to breakthrough.”
Guan Yi Yun said with a smile.
“What is senior disciple Guan’s plan?”
Jiang Chen asked with a hint of curiosity.
A dignified expression suddenly appeared on Guan Yi Yun’s face, he said, “I am going to the Inferno Hell!”
“Inferno Hell? What place is that?”
Jiang Chen asked with a puzzled expression.
This couldn’t be blamed on Jiang Chen, after all, he wasn’t familiar with the Qi Province, it was perfectly normal that he had never heard about the Inferno Hell. If it was someone else who heard this name, just the name itself would be enough to turn their faces pale.
“So junior disciple Jiang has never heard about Inferno Hell. Then, let me tell you about it. In fact, I’ve known about it for quite some time, but I have never entered it before. In the entire Qi Province, not more than a handful of people have the guts to enter it.”
With a stern expression, Guan Yi Yun expressed his fear of the Purgatory, “The Inferno Hell is located in a special place within the Eastern Continent, there’s a node in every single one of the 28 Eastern Continent Provinces connected to it, and in all the big sects of all provinces, there is an ancient portal that can transport people into the Inferno Hell. However, rarely do any disciples purposely go train themselves in the Inferno Hell. The Inferno Hell is almost the same as death itself, rumors say that it has a harsh environment with foul and evil demons running across the lands. It is a true land of vanquishing, and with my cultivation base, entering the Inferno Hell is almost equal to certain death. Not only me, it would also mean death for those Divine Core warriors!”
This was the Inferno Hell, a special place that existed in the Eastern Continent. It was a training ground for hundreds of sects and clans in all the 28 provinces in the Eastern Continent. However, just like its name, the Inferno Hell was truly a hell for those who entered it for training.
No ordinary disciple would ever step into the Inferno Hell without a valid reason. Those who entered were all the fiercest men. In some of the big sects, once a disciple had made a huge mistake, they would sometimes be sent into the Inferno Hell. This was basically the cruelest punishment.
However, those who had walked out from the Infernal Hell were all those who had gone through severe tests of life and death. Their future achievements would be limitless.
“I never expected such a special place to be in the Eastern Continent…”
Jiang Chen muttered to himself. The Inferno Hell was a place where no ordinary man could go, but Guan Yi Yun had the guts to enter it. With this brave heart alone, he had won Jiang Chen’s respect.
“Senior disciple Guan, since the Inferno Hell is such a dangerous place, you better think twice before rushing into it.”
Jiang Chen reminded.
“Haha, junior disciple Jiang, you should know this, opportunity and danger always comes together. Of course, the Inferno Hell is a dangerous place, but there’s also plenty of opportunities. I, Guan Yi Yun, do not want to be an ordinary man without any great achievements, this trip to Inferno Hell, it doesn’t matter if I die inside or come out alive, I won’t regret it at all!”
Guan Yi Yun said with a laugh.
Jiang Chen nodded his head silently. During the Qi Province competition, he had found out that Guan Yi Yun was an unyielding and passionate man. The decision of entering the Inferno Hell is not something someone ordinary can make.
“You’re right, a man should have a great dream! Living an ordinary life is just boring! We don’t ask for longevity, we just want to live a glorious life! Even if our lives were like shooting stars which only shine brightly for a short amount of time, we would still leave our own glorious days in this world!”
Jiang Chen completely supported Guan Yi Yun’s decision. Besides, he was also interested in the Inferno Hell. However, his cultivation level was weak as it was now. If there was a chance in the future, he would definitely enter the Inferno Hell and have a look at it.
“Haha, what great spirit! Junior disciple Jiang, your talent and potential is not any weaker than that of Nan Bei Chao’s! I have confidence in your fight one year from now!”
Guan Yi Yun patted Jiang Chen’s shoulder, then he said again, “Oh right, I’m actually here for something!”
“What is it, senior disciple Guan?”
Jiang Chen was startled.
“The Sect Chief wants to see you, I am here to bring you to him.”
Guan Yi Yun said.
Jiang Chen was startled once again. He was only a little disciple from the outer circle, the Sect Chief shouldn’t have noticed him.
“Junior disciple Jiang, this is good news, and it is a huge honor as well! You must know this, the Sect Chief is the top man of our sect, he usually wouldn’t meet an outer circle disciple personally, but you are different! You’ve become the champion of the Qi Province competition, and you have a fight with Nan Bei Chao one year from now, you’ve gained the acceptance of the Sect Chief! Today you even killed Li Wu Ling who is a Heavenly Core warrior with just your Mid Mortal Core cultivation base! With all of these outstanding achievements, the Black Sect will definitely support your cultivation with all sorts of resources!”
Guan Yi Yun explained to Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen nodded his head, what Guan Yi Yun had said made sense. Looks like his performance today had completely attracted the Sect Chief’s attention. Therefore, he decided to meet him personally.
A true peerless genius would be a sect’s greatest asset, he was the future hope of a sect.
“Alright, I’ll follow you to greet the Sect Chief.”
Since he had become a disciple of the Black Sect, he would need to get along well. Meeting the Sect Chief who sat up high in the leading position wasn’t something bad.
“Let’s go. After bringing you there, I’ll need to prepare for my trip to the Inferno Hell. This might be the last time we meet.”
A smile jumped onto Guan Yi Yun’s face.
“Don’t worry, we will meet again for sure.”
Jiang Chen replied.
 – ‘Inferno Hell’ (炼狱) can also be translated as ‘Purgatory’. I just thought that Inferno Hell sounded better.
