Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1540(2)
The Golden Horizon
“You’re right. How many disciples can you select in this event?” Yang Zanqing asked.
“Ten, you can give me ten identity brocade bags. Take the rest of them to the inner and outer sect,” replied Dongfang Yu after contemplating for a while .
Yang Zanqing took out ten identity brocade bags and put them in Dongfang Yu’s hands. Dongfang Yu took them and flew towards Dan Prefecture.
Similarly, it was another lunar night. It was already late at night, but Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were still frolicking around. Dongfang Yu emerged and came to Jiang Chen’s courtyard. His hand was holding ten identity brocade bags. The first person he thought of was Jiang Chen. Supposedly, he could gather the ten disciples he selected and tell them about the matter of Golden Horizon at a single time so that they could ask questions at that certain moment, however he had come to find Jiang Chen himself. This showed how much importance he had attached to Jiang Chen.
Upon seeing Dongfang Yu, Jiang Chen greeted hastily, although he felt somewhat dubious regarding the visit of Dongfang Yu. Although the Holy Flame Emperor Pill had truly helped Dongfang Yu a lot, Jiang Chen had also gotten a handsome reward from the Emperor.
Based on Dongfang Yu’s usual routine, he should have gone to seclusion at this hour and comprehend the half-step Immortal Venerable realm, instead of wasting time on Jiang Chen.
“Jiang Chen, your credit for helping me advance to half-step Immortal Venerable realm can never be overlooked. If it wasn’t for you, I’m afraid that I would have to wait for five more years to break through to this realm,” Dongfang Yu said with a smile.
He began to like Jiang Chen more and more. Putting aside the fact that Jiang Chen had helped him, Jiang Chen was also a disciple worthy of appreciation. He was an unparalleled individual, a monstrous genius with unordinary bearing. As the Master of Dan Prefecture, Dongfang Yu had no reason to dislike a young man like him.
“Master is being overly polite. It is Jiang Chen’s honour that I could provide help to Master. Don’t put that in your heart, Master. Besides, I have already gotten a handsome prize – a million Emperor Grade Immortal Meta Stones. It was something I hadn’t even dared to imagine,” Jiang Chen said with a smile.
What he said wasn’t false. Getting this one million Immortal Meta Stones was indeed an accident.
“You deserve to get them. The fact that the Emperor rewarded you indicated that he has taken you seriously. You should know that there are many geniuses in Genius Prefecture dreaming of having the chance to speak just one word in front of the Emperor. There’s no way any of them can get a reward like this. However, I have come tonight because of something important.” Dongfang Yu said.
Concocting pills again?
This was Jiang Chen’s first thought after hearing this, because he really couldn’t think of anything else that Dongfang Yu wanted from him besides concocting pills. But judging from Dongfang Yu’s expression, it didn’t seem like he had come to find him just to make pills.
“Jiang Chen, have you heard about the Golden Horizon?” Dongfang Yu asked.
“Golden Horizon? Never heard of it before.”
Jiang Chen shook his head. It was definitely his first time hearing the Golden Horizon. No doubt, he still had very little understanding about the Immortal World. After all, he was an ascendant and hadn’t been here for too long, especially in a big place like Eastern Profound Domain. Furthermore, he had spent most of his time staying in Genius Prefecture. So it was only normal that he didn’t know a lot of things.
“Then let me tell you about the Golden Horizon. Golden Horizon is a battle zone outside the domain. It’s a true ancient battlefield that has existed for a very long time. According to history, many experts had died on that battlefield. Those experts include countless Immortal Emperors, Immortal Venerables and even the legendary Great Sovereigns of the past era. It’s just that no one knows if this is true or not.”
Dongfang Yu paused for a while, then continued: “A long time ago, there’s a certain Golden Clan living in the Golden Horizon. It was rumoured that this clan was the descendants of the Divine Bird Golden Crow. Their bodies were flowing with the blood of the Golden Crow. But for unknown reason, the Golden Horizon was turned into a battle zone, and because of this, it was called Golden Horizon where innumerable experts had fallen. It was also rumoured that the treasures of the Golden Clan—Gold Feather Fan—was left behind in it. But for many years, countless heroes had entered, but still failed to find the whereabouts of the treasure.”
Jiang Chen was absorbed in the story. Almost instantly, interest blossomed within him. Given his intelligence and knowing that Dongfang Yu had come here to tell him about the matter of Golden Horizon, he could already guess that the next thing would be something related to the Golden Horizon.
He was immersed in the description of Dongfang Yu while Dongfang Yu was also immersed in his own explanation. Both of them didn’t realise how much had changed on Big Yellow’s facial expression when they were talking about the Golden Horizon.
“Master, it has something to do with the Golden Horizon?” Jiang Chen asked.
“That’s right. The Golden Horizon is only opened once every five years. It’s going to be opened soon this time, seven days later as matter of fact. The Immortal Court has permitted a hundred people for our empire. The reason I came here is to ask if you are interested in coming to the Golden Horizon. One should know that the place contained numerous ancient inheritance. Each time the Golden Horizon is opened, someone will obtain tremendous benefits and skyrocket to fame, but being an ancient battlefield, the inside of the place is also incomparably ferocious. Every time, the number of those who died far exceeded the number of people who truly obtains the benefits and came out alive,” Dongfang Yu said.
He had to tell Jiang Chen about the situation in the Golden Horizon. As to whether Jiang Chen would be willing to participate in this expedition, it would be entirely up to him. Dongfang Yu would never convince Jiang Chen to decide.
“Of course, not even the forbidden valley has scared me. So what’s the big deal about this Golden Horizon?” Jiang Chen’s Qi shook. He had agreed to paticipate in the expedition without further consideration.
