Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1701
There were some books that once described the dark clouds pressing against the city. This was exactly what’s happening in Eastern Profound Domain. The sky above everyone was covered with layers of dark clouds which was the pressure accumulated from fury and killing intent. This made everyone sense the end of the world, and their soul shivered.
Dragon Shisan was still suspended in the remote sky, blood had been drained from him. He had shrunk back to the size of an ordinary monkey. The golden hair on his body had already dimmed. There wasn’t the slightest trace of vital force and qi from his body. Countless Immortal Venerables had surrounded him. Hints of melancholy were lingering in the sky.
Linglong and Lan Lingji stood from a far distance, watching the scene.
Lan Lingji roared at the top of her lungs, her voice turned hoarse. Her tears were dropping at an alarming rate. She really wanted to rush forward to him at this moment. Even though he was already as good as dead, she wanted to go there to die together with him.
Her master pulled her firmly, not letting her act based on her impulse. Now that every major power was furious, especially Old Man Corpse Yin and Nanbei Taisheng, anyone who approached Dragon Shisan would instantly be regarded as an enemy. Therefore, Lan Lingji would certainly die if she rushed forward now.
The pain and torment had contorted her beautiful face. Despite being the saintess of her generation, she had broken into ear-splitting and frantic lamentation.
Although she and Dragon Shisan had only known each other for a short period of time, they had deep feelings for each other. From the day Dragon Shisan rescued her from the hands of Hei Lang, his shadow had been firmly branded in her heart.
A lofty girl would perhaps not give her pursuers a second glance as she felt that there was no man in this world that was worthy of her nobility. However, the nobler the girl, the easier for her to get out of control once her psychological defense was broken.
“You said that you would come to Exquisite Paradise for me. I have been waiting for you! Dragon Shisan, how can you fall just like that? Didn’t you proclaim yourself invincible?”
Lan Lingji fell to her knees in the void, both arms hugging her shoulders, shivering and shedding tears non-stop.
Linglong let out a sigh. She had watched Lan Lingji grow up and treated the girl as her own daughter. Clearly, the sight of Lan Lingji at this moment gave her a heartache.
At this moment, two figures appeared next to her. They were Hua Guyi and Hua Xiaoqian whose face had already turned melancholic when she saw the grieving Lan Lingji. Hua Xiaoqian raised her head to look at the forlorn body suspending in the void, feeling unsettled. She wouldn’t forget everything that had happened in the ancient city. She would never forget the one who had saved her and her fellow sisters’ lives from Yan Yulong.
That divine man, the invincible Immemorial Battle Spirit who disdained everything died a tragic death just like that. This was unacceptable to Hua Xiaoqian.
“He has passed away even before I can repay his kindness.” A trickle of tear flowed down her cheek.
Hua Guyi looked over at LingLong and spoke, “If we combine our efforts, I wonder if we can seize Dragon Shisan’s corpse back.”
“Then, let’s try it.”
Linglong’s eyes let out two beams of cold light. Both of them felt that they owed Dragon Shisan a favour, and couldn’t bear to watch Dragon Shisan’s corpse hanging in the void.
“Don’t be rash, two ladies.”
At this moment, a voice was heard. Yang Yu had appeared next to them all of a sudden.
“Yang Yu, Jiang Chen is the genius of Great Qian Empire, shouldn’t you do your part as well?” Linglong said.
“You think I don’t want to? Jiang Chen is the genius I have attached the most importance to, he will definitely shine brightly in my empire in the future, but given the situation, even if the three of us join forces, what can we do? If I don’t have any responsibilities, I don’t mind going all out with them, unfortunately, I’m not. The same goes to you two. It isn’t just the eight major powers of Eastern Profound Domain that have joined forces, but the major powers of the entire Ethereal Immortal Domain. Even if we combine our strength, what can we do? Old Man Corpse Yin is already on the verge of going berserk, otherwise he wouldn’t have killed Dragon Shisan. If we attack now, it will only give them a chance to exterminate us, which the eight major powers would be most willing to do. At that time, it will be the end of our sects. Even if you don’t want to think for yourself, you should consider the lives of the thousands of disciples in your sect,” Yang Yu spoke coldly.
Listening to this, Linglong and Hua Guyi halted their tracks. What Yang Yu said was true. They wanted to attack, but it was pointless. Even if the three of them joined forces, they wouldn’t be able to get Dragon Shisan’s corpse back; instead, it would create an excuse for the other major powers to annihilate them.
“Could it be that we can only watch Dragon Shisan’s corpse float in the void?” Linglong knitted her brows.
“Don’t worry. There’s still one more day. Jiang Chen will surely appear,” assured Yang Yu.
“Are you sure?” Hua Guyi said.
“Of course. Jiang Chen is a man who values friendship and loyalty. Don’t underestimate that young man. He’s a ferocious tiger, a beast. Once his fury is provoked, he will become extremely terrifying. The fact that they have killed Dragon Shisan and used his corpse to threaten him surely touched his bottom line. You just have to wait and see. The Immortal World won’t be peaceful if a ferocious beast is infuriated,” said Yang Yu. His evaluation of Jiang Chen was too high.
“However, even if Jiang Chen really appears, it will still be useless. He could only rely on the Great Void Technique and Sun Divine Feather. In such a situation, I’m afraid that he won’t be able to take the body of Dragon Shisan back even if he used the Sun Divine Feather. And worse, he may even get himself killed in the process. If Jiang Chen isn’t an idiot, he won’t show himself.” Hua Guyi said.
She hadn’t seen Jiang Chen before and had very little understanding of him, which explained why she gave such a remark.
“Jiang Chen will surely appear. He won’t allow Dragon Shisan’s corpse to be tainted.”
A voice came from behind. He was Han Yan. No one understood Jiang Chen better than him. Last time, in order to regrow his arm, Jiang Chen even went to rob the Regenerative Lotus without hesitation.
Yang Yu was right. This group of major powers had truly provoked a ferocious beast that would definitely injure them pretty badly.
But then again, looking at the encampment, Tyrant, Han Yan and Yang Bufan couldn’t help feeling worried, because such a situation was just too difficult.
