Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1323
Tian Muyun’s Grievance
The experts of the three major powers sniffed at Daoist Yufeng’s words. Apparently, they had already anticipated that he would respond in such a way. This was just a verbal claim made by Skycloud Pavilion alone. They had already concluded that Jiang Chen was inside Skycloud Pavilion.
“Daoist Yufeng, don’t ever talk nonsense here. If you don’t hand over Jiang Chen today, we won’t leave. You and Tian Muyun better think about this twice. Is it worth going against us just for an insignificant brat? I believe that’s not what you all want.”
Huangfu Yaotian spoke in a threatening tone. They had come here with the resoluteness to kill Jiang Chen. They would never give up if they never saw Jiang Chen.
The incidents in the ancient tomb made them understand one thing very well. That was the harmfulness of Jiang Chen. He was a monstrous being and his speed of growth was far beyond their imagination. They absolutely couldn’t let him continue to grow. Otherwise, he would surely become a major threat to the them.
“Elder Daoist, if we arouse the anger of the three major powers because of one puny Jiang Chen, it won’t be favorable to our pavilion.”
Next to Daoist Yufeng, Yang Shu spoke. All this while, he had also been looking for Jiang Chen, but found no trace of him. By now, even he was starting to doubt Tian Muyun’s decision. He currently had the same thoughts as the three major powers – Jiang Chen wasn’t sent into the Evil Abyss, but was hidden in Skycloud Pavilion. Although he had no idea where Jiang Chen had been hiding, he believed that Daoist Yufeng should know about it.
“Yang Shu, what do you mean?”
Daoist Yufeng frowned. He was an upright person whereas Yang Shu was a scheming individual. This made him like Yang Shu lesser. Amongst the Senior Elders in Skycloud Pavilion, he had a much better impression of Tianji Zi.
“Humph! Elder Yang implies that Jiang Chen is now hiding secretly in Skycloud Pavilion and demands us to hand him over in exchange for Skycloud Pavilion’s peace. Your guts are growing larger and larger Yang Shu, daring to doubt even the Pavilion Master and Elder Daoist. Being the master of Jiang Chen, I don’t even know where he is, and besides, I was there when Pavilion Master sent Jiang Chen into the Evil Abyss. There’s no mistake about it.”
Tianji Zi harrumphed coldly. He never got along with Yang Shu. So would naturally he voice out his opinion at this point.
“Sect Masters, I understand your mood very well, but I assure you with my character that Jiang Chen isn’t in Skycloud Pavilion.”
Daoist Yufeng said impatiently. During normal days, he wouldn’t stand here explaining to them given his high pride, but now that the three major powers had joined together, he had no choice but to endure.
“Big Brother, Daoist Yufeng does have a pleasant character. Could it be that Jiang Chen really isn’t in Skycloud Pavilion?”
The Grand Elder of Yun Family, Yun Zhonglong, said softy. Although there had been constant fights among the Eight Immortals, several of them admired Daoist Yufeng’s manners very much. Despite being Daoist Yufeng’s enemies, they still couldn’t deny Daoist Yufeng’s upright character. Now that Daoist Yufeng was using his character as assurance, it made all of them ponder over their decision once more.
“Even if Daoist Yufeng can be trusted, it doesn’t apply to Tian Muyun. If Tian Muyun wants to hide Jiang Chen, I’m afraid that not even Daoist Yufeng will know about it.” Huangfu Qun said.
“Daoist Yufeng, since you are assuring the matter with your character, let me ask you this – have you ever seen Tian Muyun send Jiang Chen into the Evil Abyss with your own eyes?” Huangfu Yaotian asked.
Hearing this, Daoist Yufeng couldn’t help but frown. During that time, he wasn’t present on the scene.
“No, I didn’t, but Tianji Zi witnessed it. You all should believe what he said,” replied Daoist Yufeng.
“If it was before, we’ll naturally believe it, but now, Tianji Zi’s identity has changed. He’s the master of Jiang Chen. How can we possibly believe him? So, I think it’s better to let Tian Muyun explain this himself.” Dugu Sheng said loudly.
As a matter of fact, the experts of the three major powers were starting to worry. They hadn’t found Jiang Chen even after searching for three days. If Jiang Chen wasn’t in Skycloud Pavilion, it only indicated that Jiang Chen hid himself too well and that made him even scarier. Furthermore, Jiang Chen’s speed of growth was too rapid, stirring fear inside of them, the fear for their future. They were almost sure that if Jiang Chen grew to a certain extent, what awaited them would only be destruction, and this wouldn’t be very long.
Just as Dugu Sheng’s voice faded, an incredible Qi suddenly rose from the center of Skycloud Pavilion. The momentum was tremendous. It immediately drew the attention of everyone. Next, a silhouette flashed out. He was young and handsome. His complexion was as clear as jade. Across the whole One-Line-Sky, there was only Tian Muyun who have such a powerful Qi and cultivation at such a young age.
Tian Muyun emerged. His speed was extremely fast. He arrived outside the mountain gate in a flash. Dugu Sheng and the other experts couldn’t help frowning when they saw the current Tian Muyun. Even though he was still a half-step Immortal King expert, they were able to detect that Tian Muyun was a lot stronger compared to three days ago. Even though it wasn’t a huge improvement, he was indeed more powerful now.
“This bastard has gotten stronger again.”
The great experts were murmuring in their hearts. Tian Muyun’s existence was already a threat to them. Now that Tian Muyun had gotten stronger than before, it gave them a trace of uneasiness. Adding Jiang Chen into the picture, it was only a matter of time before the whole One-Line-Sky became Skycloud Pavilion’s.
Now, the only thing that comforted them was that Jiang Chen was still weak and Tian Muyun had yet to reach the true Immortal King realm. Breaking through to the Immortal King realm wasn’t easy after all. All of these old masters had stopped at the half-step Immortal King realm for quite some time. They knew pretty well how difficult it was to cross this bottleneck.
“Everyone, Jiang Chen is truly not in Skycloud Pavilion.”
Tian Muyun spoke. He wasn’t a fool. He knew why they were here. His face didn’t look very well, but only he knew how he was feeling right now, he was feeling too aggrieved and had the urge to cough up blood.
“Haha! Tian Muyun, do you still want to lie to us? Are all of these a scheme of yours? If you don’t hand over Jiang Chen to us today, we won’t let this matter rest!” Dugu Sheng laughed.
