Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1682
Shocking the two Prefecture Masters
“Don’t worry. Little Chen has already mastered the Great Void Technique. With the spatial barrier between the Golden Horizon and the outer world now open, even if he has gone into the crevice of the space, he will still be able to find his way out. That’s the Great Void Technique that we are talking about, the legacy left by the Void Sovereign,” Yang Lang spoke with a smile, his tone was full of admiration.
Everyone knew very well that Jiang Chen was undoubtedly the biggest winner in this journey. Putting other things aside, the Sun Divine Feather and the Great Void Technique that he acquired were sufficient to drive people crazy. In addition, he had gotten the Fire of Sun which could only be possessed by individuals with heaven-defying luck and abilities.
Lan Lingji came to Dragon Shisan’s front and lightly pulled his hand, and said, “Brother Shisan, what’s your next plan?”
Lan Lingji was extremely worried about Dragon Shisan. After all, he had killed quite a lot of people along the way, including Ye Qingtian. If those he killed were all from the other two Immortal Domains, it would be difficult for them to cross a great Immortal Domain to seek revenge, but Ye Qingtian, being a genius of the Immortal court, was no ordinary figure. The moment the Immortal Court started to pursue the case, there was nowhere Dragon Shisan could escape to. He wouldn’t find a safe place to hide even in all the Immortal Domains.
“Not to worry. It will not be that easy for them to take my life. Return to Exquisite Paradise first. I’ll find you later,” Dragon Shisan said with full confidence.
He didn’t know what would happen next, but just like Jiang Chen, he would take one step at a time. It wouldn’t be easy for anyone or any major power to kill him.
“Okay, I’ll wait for you at Exquisite Paradise.”
Lan Lingji nodded energetically. Having fallen head over heels for him, she believed that he would do what he promised.
Then, Lan Lingji departed with her fellow disciples and vanished into one of the spatial passageways.
Numerous geniuses had already left, and now, only Yang Bufan and a few others remained. Han Yan and Tyrant weren’t planning to return to their respective sects as Jiang Chen had told them to travel together with Yang Bufan back to Great Qian Empire and help him. Mo Wuqing and Grandmaster Hao Ran would also go with them. After witnessing the war earlier, Mo Wuqing felt that his life would be more interesting and rewarding following this group of people.
“Let’s go. The spatial passageways will soon close. Let’s leave this place.” Yang Bufan said and was the first to fly towards the passageway.
Dragon Shisan also followed them into the passageway, however he had already intended to leave at the end of the passageway. Although the killings he committed wasn’t as serious as Jiang Chen, he was still considered one of the major culprits. He was almost sure that if those big-shots he offended couldn’t find Jiang Chen, they would definitely focus their attention on him. Hence, in order to not cause Great Qian Empire unnecessary trouble, he needed to isolate himself from them.
Back in Genius Prefecture, Yang Zanqing, Dongfang Yu and a bunch of higher-ups were standing on a spacious square. Their faces were full of anticipation and delight. They knew that those geniuses that went to the Golden Horizon were on their way back. This was a tense moment. They had no idea what those geniuses gained from the expedition, and how many of them would return this time around.
“Brother Yu, how many of them do you think will return?” Yang Zanqing looked over at Dongfang Yu.
“Based on the past records, it’s already considered not bad if half of them can return. My concern now is to what extent they had improved,” Dongfang Yu replied.
“We’ll see, but I’m still rather excited.”
Although Yang Zanqing is the master of Genius Prefecture, he seldom appeared in normal situations. There were many disciples who didn’t even know what he looked like. He was as mysterious as the Emperor, but right now, he had come to the square personally, waiting for the triumphant return of the gifted disciples.
To an empire, the young generation was the foundation, the future, and the pillar. The empire would only get stronger if they got stronger. Otherwise, the empire wouldn’t have taken such a risk of sending more than 200 geniuses to the dangerous and life-threatening Golden Horizon.
“In your estimate, to what extent has Jiang Chen improved?”
Dongfang Yu looked over at Yang Zanqing this time. His eyes couldn’t help but sparkle at the mention of Jiang Chen’s name. Being the master of the Dan Prefecture for so long, Jiang Chen was the most powerful disciple he had ever seen, prompting him to attach great importance to the young man. He really looked forward to Jiang Chen’s return and the surprise that this unparalleled genius would bring him.
“I too have a high opinion of him. I hope that he can surprise us.”
Yang Zanqing smiled. Both of them expected Jiang Chen to surprise them, however they had no idea that the surprise they were expecting might exceed their imagination.
The spatial passageway continued to devour the spatial energy in the sky. Then, with a bang, silhouettes were being thrown out of it. As Yang Zanqing had already deployed a gentle force of net in the surroundings beforehand, everyone was able to find a steady landing.
Soon, all of the geniuses had exited the spatial passageway. There were a total of 150 of them. That was to say, less than half of them were killed in the expedition. This number was far greater than what Yan Zanqing and Dongfang Yu had expected.
“There are so many of them.”
The number of geniuses who survived the expedition was unprecedented, and had surprised the higher-ups of the empire. After all of the geniuses were out, the spatial passageway closed once again. That was to say, all of the geniuses had already returned from the Golden Horizon, but clearly, the group seemed lacking of a few important figures.
“Where’s Jiang Chen, King Ping, and the Crown Prince?”
Yang Zanqing spat out these names at once. These were the three whom he attached great importance to, however they were nowhere to be seen, except for King Fan.
As a matter of fact, the gains of the Great Qian Empire were absolutely tremendous. Yang Lang, Shan Chong and Yang Bufan had succeeded in advancing to the late Immortal Emperor realm, which was beyond their expectation, but Jiang Chen and the two princes weren’t in the group. One should know that those who didn’t walk out of the Golden Horizon indicated that they had already died inside.
“Impossible. Jiang Chen will not die.”
Dongfang Yu’s facial expression changed slightly. He was the first to deny that Jiang Chen was already dead.
“Bufan, tell me quickly. Where are the three of them?” Yang Zanqing focused on Yang Bufan. The atmosphere on the square had become slightly heavier.
“Master, the Crown Prince and King Ping weren’t able to walk out of the Golden Horizon because they are already dead,” replied Yang Bufan. This was a fact that he couldn’t hide.
