Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 119
Chapter 119 – Hunting Down
The Great Soul Derivation skill was simply astonishing. The exquisite sensation of soul energy had pierced right through the source of the Bloody Combat Wolf, and identified its true self. Even Big Yellow had to praise Jiang Chen in his mind.
Big Yellow let out a ferocious roar, then he adjusted his direction in midair. With his head shining brightly, he flew towards the Bloody Combat Wolf like a high-speed arrow. With this attack, he could instantly shatter a mountain.
On the other side, Jiang Chen raised his battle axe up high. In the blink of an eye, he had gotten closer to the Bloody Combat Wolf’s head. Big Yellow and Jiang Chen had locked down the real Bloody Combat Wolf, and ignored all attacks from the phantoms.
The Bloody Combat Wolf’s expression changed dramatically, it had never expected something like this to happen. Jiang Chen found out his true self with just one look, and this had really startled him. The Bloody Combat Wolf was shocked by this, and its mind had gone completely blank for a split second.
In the middle of a battle, zoning out for even a fraction of time would be devastating. The Bloody Combat Wolf had the strength to continue fighting, but because it was too startled by the fact that his Nine Phantom Wolves had been seen through by someone, he had become zoned out for a split second, and this brought an end to his life.
Big Yellow’s head and Jiang Chen’s Axe of Thunder, both landed on the Bloody Combat Wolf’s body. Then, it screamed out in extreme pain as it was chopped into two pieces by the battle axe. Its blood was splashing all over the place. At the same time, Big Yellow’s head had caused havoc inside of its body which had shattered all of its internal organs.
The Bloody Combat Wolf hadn’t died yet, but it was badly wounded, and not far away from being completely dead. Jiang Chen then sent him to hell with another swing of his battle axe. When the Bloody Combat Wolf died, all the 8 phantoms disappeared at the same time.
“Haha, you’re really amazing, you can really find out which the real Bloody Combat Wolf is! I, your father, really admires you now!”
Big Yellow was laughing out excitedly.
“A big reason for why we were able to kill this Bloody Combat Wolf so easily is that lady luck was smiling at us.”
Jiang Chen smiled. The Bloody Combat Wolf was the king amongst all other wolves, it would never be this easy to kill. Even if Jiang Chen was able to see through his Nine Phantom Wolves, without an intense fight, it would still have been impossible for them to kill it.
Jiang Chen’s luck depended on the mentality of the Bloody Combat Wolf, if it hadn’t been zoned out during the battle, losing its opportunity to dodge, it would still be alive now. Even if it couldn’t defeat Jiang Chen and Big Yellow by the end of it all, it would still have the chance to run away.
In fact, the Bloody Combat Wolf zoning out wasn’t all because of its bad mentality, it was also because it was just too confident in its own Nine Phantom Wolves. No one had ever figured out which his true self was amongst all nine phantoms, but this young Mortal Core warrior could tell which one was the real one with just a single glance, cracking its Nine Phantom Wolves. This was why it had become so startled and had lost its life before recovering from the shock.
“I don’t care about lady luck, what I want to know is, after absorbing the Bloody Combat Wolf’s demon soul, can you inherit its Nine Phantom Wolves innate ability?”
Big Yellow looked at Jiang Chen with anticipation, he could still remember that last time, when Jiang Chen absorbed the Blood Winged Hawk’s demon soul, not only did he inherit a pair of blood wings, he also learned its innate ability, the Sonic Hawk Cry. Now, if Jiang Chen could inherit the Nine Phantom Wolves ability from the Bloody Combat Wolf, he would become even more powerful. The Nine Phantom Wolves was much better than the Sonic Hawk Cry.
“Of course I can. If you were to give me your demon soul, I could completely inherit your entire bloodline. You can try if you don’t believe me.
Jiang Chen looked at Big Yellow.
“Get the fuck out of here!”
Big Yellow opened his mouth widely and bit onto Jiang Chen’s butt.
“Ouch! The fuck, damned dog, your father was just joking! Let go of me!”
Jiang Chen slapped Big Yellow away, then he rubbed his aching butt. This damned dog was too wild, and he hadn’t even shown any signs of wanting to bite him.
Jiang Chen extended his arm and grabbed the demon soul out from the Bloody Combat Wolf’s skull. When he felt the massive amount of pure energy contained within the demon soul, Jiang Chen couldn’t hold his excitement any longer, and his eyes lit up. The demon soul of those demon beasts with special bloodlines were far stronger than those of ordinary bloodlines. The Bloody Combat Wolf’s demon soul not only contained a massive amount of energy, it also had the powerful energy of bloodlines and innate abilities. For Jiang Chen, who was cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill, this was a precious treasure. If he could absorb this demon soul that was rich in both energy and bloodline, Jiang Chen was confident he would be able to break through to the Late Mortal Core realm straight away.
Just as Jiang Chen was about to start absorbing the demon soul, a bright sword beam suddenly broke the dark night as it came towards Jiang Chen’s head like a lightning bolt.
This was a sword beam unleashed from a human’s combat weapon. Judging from its power, the man who attacked was at least a Mid Heavenly Core warrior, and as a Heavenly Core warrior, this man had actually tried to sneak attack Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen’s expression darkened. With a bad feeling and super fast reaction, he hurriedly stored the demon soul and jumped backwards, evading the attack with lightning like speed.
Even with such great speed, Jiang Chen’s shoulder still got cut by the sword beam. It left a deep wound, and blood kept flowing out from it.
Jiang Chen shouted out loudly. The sneak attack would have killed an Early Heavenly Core warrior instantly, but Jiang Chen had luckily been able to react quickly. If he hadn’t, he would have been dead by now.
After the sound of the wind breaking, a ghostly black figure appeared in front of Jiang Chen. The man was wearing black clothes, and his face was covered with a black veil. Only his cruel eyes were showing.
The man in black looked at Jiang Chen who had been wounded with amazement. With a thick voice, he said, “Amazing, you actually evaded my attack.”
It was obvious that the man made his voice thick on purpose, the man simply didn’t want Jiang Chen to recognize his real identity.
“You’re from Black Sect, why are you trying to kill me?”
Jiang Chen furrowed his brows. This was the Myriad Demon Mountain, the training ground for the Black Sect disciples. The disciples of the other three big sects would never come here. Besides, the man in black was obviously well prepared, it had only been a few hours since Jiang Chen left the Black Sect and came to this mountain. Only those from the Black Sect could have information regarding his location.
And, because of this, Jiang Chen was puzzled. He arrived in the Qi Province not long ago, the matters between him and Yin Zhong Cheng had been settled. What was left was the matters between himself, the Heavenly Sword Sect and the Burning Sky Pavilion. He really couldn’t think of anyone in the Black Sect who would want to kill him. Besides, he was a disciple of the Black Sect, and he had even represented the Black Sect to take first place in the Qi Province competition, he had brought them glory.
What was more important was that Jiang Chen had never contacted any Heavenly Core warriors in the Black Sect, let alone offend any of them. But now, there was a man from the Black Sect trying to kill him. This was ridiculous.
“You won’t have to opportunity to know why. My purpose for killing you today is to teach you a lesson. In your next life, stay low, and try not to be so arrogant; there is always someone whom you cannot afford to offend.”
The man in black said slowly.
After saying those words, the man raised the sword in his hand and swung it towards Jiang Chen once again. The bright sword beam had locked down Jiang Chen completely, making it impossible for Jiang Chen to run away. A Mid Heavenly Core warrior using a mid-ranked combat weapon to kill a Mortal Core warrior, this told Jiang Chen how determined this man was in his goal to kill Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen cursed. He didn’t have the time to guess whoever was the one that wanted to kill him. Right at this moment, the most important thing for him to do was run for his life. He held the Axe of Thunder in his hand, and he destroyed the sword beam’s lock down, then he swung the axe once again at the man in black. At the same time, Big Yellow spat out a golden energy orb towards the enemy.
The devastating energy began destroying everything across the area. The Mid Heavenly Core warrior in front of them was obviously one of the Black Sect’s inner circle disciple, a genius from the younger generation. His combat strength couldn’t be compared with that of those ordinary Mid Heavenly Core warriors.
Even if Jiang Chen and Big Yellow worked together, there would be no way for them to defeat this man in black. This impact had made Jiang Chen and Big Yellow’s blood and qi start boiling, this feeling made them feel unwell.
Jiang Chen shouted again, by utilizing the force of impact, he spread his bloody wing, turned into two bright lights together with Big Yellow Dog, flying toward the deeper area of sector two.
“This guy is really strong, and the dog isn’t bad either. However, in front of me, you guys won’t even have the chance to escape!”
The man in black sneered, then he turned into black smoke and chased after them.
“Jiang Chen was using a high-ranked combat weapon, how can a tiny little Mortal Core warrior use such a good weapon? It’s so wasteful! If I could have that high-ranked combat weapon, my combat strength would increase to another level!”
A greedy look appeared in the eyes of this man. The attraction of a high-ranked combat weapon, to any Heavenly Core warrior, was very huge.
Another loud explosion. The bright sword beam was chasing up to them from their backs once again, forcing Jiang Chen and Big Yellow to retaliate.
“Damn it, we can’t go on like this! A Mid Heavenly Core warrior, we have no chance at defeating him at all!”
Big Yellow said helplessly.
“Let’s head towards the center of sector two, he won’t dare to follow us there!”
A cruel expression emerged on Jiang Chen’s face. With his blood wings and Dimensional Shift skill, even if he was wounded, his speed would still increase by a lot. As for Big Yellow, after he had broken through to the Late Mortal Core realm, his speed had become faster than lightning.
However, the man in black wasn’t slow either, and he kept chasing.
“What?! Enter the center of sector two?! Are you nuts?! That’s like suicide to me!”
Big Yellow glared at Jiang Chen.
“Then do you have any better solutions? This is our only chance, as long as I can absorb the Bloody Combat Wolf’s demon soul and break through to the Late Mortal Core realm, we won’t have to run anymore!”
Jiang Chen said. The man in black had come at the right time, if he was here half an hour late, when Jiang Chen had already absorbed the Bloody Combat Wolf’s soul completely, this man in black wouldn’t have been a threat to Jiang Chen. But, too bad, time wasn’t on Jiang Chen’s side.
“Jiang Chen, surrender now, if you go any further, you’ll be entering the center of sector two, it’s certain death for you in that area!”
The man in black threatened them. But, when he saw Jiang Chen still continuing going forwards, doubts started appearing on his face. Just like Jiang Chen had thought, the second sector center of the Myriad Demon Mountain was extremely dangerous, even the man in black wouldn’t dare enter.
“Catch me if you can, bitch!”
While running with great speed, Jiang Chen never forgot to say some taunting words. Trying to kill Jiang Chen was not a simple task.
