Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1427
White-Clad Old Man
“He’s Lord Fu Kui, a powerful Immortal Emperor. Haha! We are safe this time. Jiang Chen and that dog is going to be finished. He has killed Young Master Futian, which has certainly stirred the anger of Lord Fu Kui. They won’t be able to resist the wrath of an Immortal Emperor and will surely die.”
“That’s right, we are safe now, but it’s a pity that Young Master Futian, a renowned genius in Eastern Profound Domain, died just like that. I’m afraid that he hadn’t died in peace.”
“Let’s not talk so much about that. I think that Lord Fu Kui will never let Jiang Chen die easily. He will definitely torment Jiang Chen. Otherwise, he won’t be able to dispel his hatred.”
Those who hadn’t been killed by Jiang Chen were exhilarated. Some of them were about to cry upon seeing the emergence of their savior, Fu Kui. They didn’t have any doubts about the outcome of Jiang Chen and Big Yellow. Before a mighty Immortal Emperor, even a monstrous genius like Jiang Chen was as vulnerable as an ant, because the disparity between them was just too wide.
Fu Kui’s fury came out like tidal waves, turning into a shapeless barrier as it lunged at Jiang Chen. Even with Jiang Chen’s speed, he couldn’t get away from it. The pressure that was formed from Fu Kui’s anger had completely enshrouded Jiang Chen.
Under this sudden pressure, Jiang Chen couldn’t help but let out a dull humph. A trace of blood trickled down from his mouth. The pressure was just too great, like a giant mountain, making Jiang Chen breathless.
Upon seeing the situation, most of them were shocked, including Fu Kui himself. He knew how powerful that pressure was. Not just a puny little Golden Immortal, even an Immortal King wouldn’t be able to bear it. As for Jiang Chen, only a trickle of blood flowed out of his mouth, and he was still standing there tenaciously. This fact alone was admirable.
Even Fu Kui was incredibly impressed, but that wouldn’t be enough reason for him to spare Jiang Chen, because Jiang Chen had killed his beloved son. In this region, no one should dare to kill his son.
“Who are you brat?! Why did you kill my son?” Fu Kui asked angrily.
He knew the geniuses among the eleven major powers. Although this man was only a Golden Immortal, his combat strength was extremely powerful. He should have become famous because of that, but Fu Kui hadn’t seen him before.
“Because he deserves death.”
Jiang Chen’s tone was still filled with indifference. Even in the face of a mighty Immortal Emperor, he didn’t have the slightest fear. With the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, he had confidence in fleeing away from an Immortal Emperor.
“Big Yellow, come near me quick!”
Jiang Chen whispered hastily. An Immortal Emperor wasn’t someone he could deal with. The only thing he could do now was to run away. Perhaps, he couldn’t even flee and could only hide in the pagoda. So he had to warn Big Yellow to get to his side as soon as possible. In that case, as soon as the door of the was pagoda opened, they could immediately get inside in the quickest time possible.
Big Yellow had already acted even before Jiang Chen’s reminder. He was as clear as Jiang Chen about their situation now. They absolutely wouldn’t be able to fight this battle and had to consider saving their own lives at the present moment.
“Haha! What an arrogant kid! You have killed my son. I don’t care who you are. I must avenge my son’s murder, however I won’t kill you directly. I will capture you, and then torture you bit by bit, so that you can experience countless types of cruel torment before you die.”
Fu Kui laughed aloud and spoke while clenching his teeth. His son’s body was still lying below him. There was no way for him to bring back the dead. All he could do now was to avenge his son’s death by making the murderer suffer more horrendously than his son.
After he finished speaking, Fu Kui moved. He struck out his palm. A giant palm the size of a mountain materialized, grabbing at Jiang Chen. This strike had imprisoned the entire spatial zone, completely turning it into a cage. Everything within the area had fallen under Fu Kui’s control.
This was the power of a great Immortal Emperor. He could radiate mighty skill with a casual gesture.
Jiang Chen’s facial expression changed. After sensing the true attack of an Immortal Emperor, only now did he realized the scariness of this realm. He was crystal clear that there was still a tremendous gap between him and that realm. Even if he expended all of his energy, he was still no match for Fu Kui.
However, just as Jiang Chen was about to open the doors of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, the giant palm attack was shattered to pieces in the void when it was already halfway towards hitting its target.
No one attacked, or it should be said that no one saw that someone had attacked. That giant palm seemed to shatter strangely on by itself.
“Who is it?”
Fu Kui’s facial expression changed dramatically and shouted at the void. Only he knew that the reason his palm strike was broken was because someone had sent out an attack stealthily. What scared him was that he hadn’t seem to notice the attacker despite his early Immortal Emperor realm cultivation base. There was only a gentle breeze in the sky before his palm strike was destroyed.
He had lost his composure. There was only one explanation for such a situation – someone had attacked in the dark and the attacker must be stronger than him.
Both Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were stunned. Their faces were filled with shock. Although they had been paying attention to the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, if someone were to attack, they should have felt some hint of the attack given their perceptive ability. To their surprise, they detected nothing. The giant palm struck by Fu Kui seemed to have exploded by itself without leaving a trace behind.
The scene had turned completely silent. Fu Kui’s eyes were shimmering with brilliance as he scanned below. His divine sense covered every corner of the region, but found nothing unordinary and failed to find the person who made the sneak-attack.
The more he searched, the greater the shock he felt in his heart. The most horrifying thing for anyone was not knowing one’s enemy location.
However, he couldn’t just give up his target. He was ready to send out another attack. He had to avenge his son’s death and kill his enemy. He must eliminate Jiang Chen today.
An incredible Qi rushed out of his body.
Just as Fu Kui was about to launch another strike, a shout sounded all of a sudden from a far distance in the sky. In the next moment, a white-clad elder emerged. His white beard fluttered in the air. He had the demeanor of a transcendent being, like a banished immortal. The moment he emerged, he lifted his hand to break away the barrier of pressure enshrouding Jiang Chen and Big Yellow and stood in front of them.
“Little Chen, who’s this old man? Why is he helping us?” Big Yellow asked through divine sense.
“How the hell would I know? I don’t know him anyway.”
Jiang Chen shook his head. Certainly, he had no idea who this old man was, much less knowing why the old man was helping them. But there was one thing he could determine from the old man. The Qi radiating from this old man was similar to Fu Kui, which apparently showed that he was also an early Immortal Emperor expert.
