Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 190
Qing Styx’s fury
Chapter 190 – Qing Styx’s fury.
The arrival of Yun Can had shaken the entire Black Sect. At the same time, the name of Yun Can began spreading across all disciples. Many of them had heard his name before, but they had never seen him in person. He was after all one of the legendary men from the Heavenly Sword Sect, and was very famous two years ago. If anyone said they had never heard his name before, they should be ashamed.
The news about Jiang Chen killing Liang Xiao had spread across the entire province, and of course, the Heavenly Sword Sect had gotten the news as well. Liang Xiao was the number one genius of the Heavenly Sword Sect, and it there were no accidents, he would become the next core disciple. His death had definitely made the Heavenly Sword Sect suffer a great loss.
If it was a Divine Core Sect Elder from the Black Sect who killed Liang Xiao, the Heavenly Sword Sect would definitely erupt with anger and go all out against the Black Sect. But, Liang Xiao was killed by Jiang Chen. Besides, when Jiang Chen killed Liang Xiao, he had a much weaker cultivation level compared to Liang Xiao, and everybody knew this.
There was an unwritten rule amongst the four big sects of the Qi Province, so it was rare for an elder to get involved in the fights amongst younger generation geniuses. So, it all depended on their own abilities to fight each other and decided who the last one standing would be.
Therefore, although the Heavenly Sword Sect was extremely angry and wished to tear Jiang Chen into pieces, their elders didn’t dare openly come to the Black Sect to find trouble with Jiang Chen, they couldn’t shame their own faces. The number one genius from the Heavenly Sword Sect was killed by a new rising star of the Black Sect, and this brought huge disgrace onto the Heavenly Sword Sect. Besides, it happened because Liang Xiao tried assassinating Jiang Chen, and therefore, the Heavenly Sword Sect’s management couldn’t openly get revenge.
And even if they did want to avenge Liang Xiao, they would have to wait until Jiang Chen left the Black Sect. Jiang Chen had become stronger and stronger, and it seemed like he was going to become the second Nanbei Chao. All elders of the Heavenly Sword Sect wished to kill Jiang Chen as quickly as possible, but they simply couldn’t do it with him still being within the Black Sect.
The return of Yun Can had given the Heavenly Sword Sect an opportunity to kill Jiang Chen. Yun Can was also a genius of the younger generation, and no one would say anything bad about a young generation genius fighting another one. As long as they could kill Jiang Chen, not only would the blood debt caused by Liang Xiao’s death be paid off, it would also make the Heavenly Sword Sect rise in fame. But, the most important thing was that Jiang Chen would be killed.
“Jiang Chen, don’t be a shirker, come out and face your death! Yun Can from the Heavenly Sword Sect is here to challenge you!”
Yun Can’s challenge surged throughout the entire Black Mountain.
“Fuck, why is every single person from the Heavenly Sword Sect so shameless? Last time it was that Li Wuling, and now it’s this Yun Can! Senior disciple Jiang is only a Mid Heavenly Core warrior, but this Yun Can is a well-known Divine Core warrior, and he doesn’t even feel ashamed about challenging a Mid Heavenly Core warrior.”
“That’s right, if senior disciple Jiang was a Divine Core warrior, this Yun Can would be running as far away from here as possible the moment he heard senior disciple Jiang’s name. I don’t think he would have the courage to come here.”
“Senior disciple Jiang used his true abilities to kill Liang Xiao, and according to what I know, it was Fan Kun who secretly informed Liang Xiao and had him ambush senior disciple Jiang. But in the end, he failed and got killed by senior disciple Jiang, so he can only blame himself for lacking abilities. I think this Yun Can is similar to Liang Xiao.”
Yun Can’s arrogant attitude had pissed off many disciples of the Black Sect, but although they were angry, no one really dared stand out and confront Yun Can. The Black Sect’s core disciples were still away from the sect.
Within the Black Sect, Guo Shan who was resting and cultivating heard the shouts as well. His expression instantly changed, and at the same time, Big Yellow flew towards Guo Shan while shouting, “Old man Guo Shan, hurry up and get rid of that stupid guy. Jiang Chen is in a critical moment of his cultivation, he has no time to fight that guy now.”
“Alright, I’ll go right now.”
Guo Shan nodded his head. He knew that Big Yellow was speaking the truth. He immediately stood up and flew towards the Black Sect’s main gate.
“Old man Guo Shan, tell that guy he will have to wait another two days if he wants to challenge Jiang Chen. Two days later, Jiang Chen will beat him so much that his mother will be unable to recognize him.”
Big Yellow said.
Guo Shan laughed out heartily. He believed Big Yellow’s words. Currently, Jiang Chen was able to kill any ordinary Early Divine Core warriors, and he might not be able to defeat a genius like Yun Can. However, if Jiang Chen broke through to the Late Heavenly Core realm, that would be a completely different story, and Yun Can would definitely not be his match. Jiang Chen would be able to crush him in an instant.
“Jiang Chen, why have you still not come out?”
Yun Can was extremely aggressive as he kept shouting for Jiang Chen.
Right at this moment, a loud shout sounded out from within the Black Sect. In the next second, everyone at the scene saw Sect Elder Guo Shan coming with great speed and an angry expression on his face.
“Yun Can, why are you shouting from the Black Sect’s entrance so early in the morning? Didn’t your parents teach you any manners? Do you believe I won’t kill you right now?”
Guo Shan said in a stern manner.
“Hmph! Try to kill me? Unless you really have some abilities, I don’t have time for you! Let that Jiang Chen out right now, I want to kill him today and avenge junior disciple Liang Xiao!”
Yun Can let out a cold snort. He simply looked down at Guo Shan. Core disciples were usually proud and thought nothing about others. Although Guo Shan was one level higher than him, if they really engaged in a fight, Guo Shan would have a hard time defeating him.
Yun Can had broken through to the Divine Core realm two years ago, and he was now a peak Early Divine Core warrior now, just a few steps away from breaking through to the Mid Divine Core realm.
“Let me tell you this, Jiang Chen has no time for you now. However, if you want to challenge him, you’ll have to wait for two more days. In two days, he will beat you so much that even your mother will be unable to recognize you. If you keep yelling without any manners, don’t blame me for sending someone powerful to attack you now.”
Guo Shan sneered.
“Haha, Yun Can, did you hear that? In two days, senior disciple Jiang will beat you until your mother can’t recognize you anymore! I think you better hurry up and get lost, and avoid coming here again! You don’t want what happened to Liang Xiao to happen to you, really.”
“That’s right, senior disciple Jiang never shows any mercy when he attacks! If you get yourself killed here, nobody will help bury your dead corpse. It would be a really tragic death.”
Wang Yun and Huang Zheng were trash talking and laughing out loudly.
“Hmph! Presumptuous! Fine, I’ll return in two days. Tell Jiang Chen to wash his neck for me. Two days later, I, Yun Can, will return once again, and kill him!”
After saying that, Yun Can turned around and left.
“Senior disciple Jiang really accepted Yun Can’s challenge… Is it because he’s close to another breakthrough?”
“It’s hard to tell. Senior disciple Jiang is probably in secluded cultivation right now, he might be able to breakthrough again during these two days, and if that is the case, he will be able to defeat Yun Can without many problems.”
“You’re right, senior disciple Jiang is a peerless genius, his potential is no less than Nanbei Chao’s. His cultivation speed is extremely fast, and he can’t be judged with ordinary standards. Besides, senior disciple Jiang would never do something he wasn’t completely confident about. If he says he’ll accept Yun Can’s challenge in two days, that means he really has the confidence to do so.”
“Haha, if senior disciple Jiang really kills a core disciple from the Heavenly Sword Sect, his fame will definitely grow exponentially, and it’ll prove that he is able to fight Nanbei Chao!”
All the disciples of the Black Sect carried excited looks on their faces. Jiang Chen’s reputation had left an eternal mark in their hearts.
At the same time, Qian Province, Green Sanctuary Sect.
Early in the morning, a figure flew out from the Green Sanctuary Sect with extreme speed. In just a few breaths time, he arrived at Misty Mountain’s outer perimeter. The man was the Green Sanctuary Sect’s Sect Chief, Qing Styx.
Qing Styx suffered pretty serious injuries during his battle with Firethorn Savage, but he had now fully recovered from that. The first thing he wanted to do now that he had fully recovered was to kill Firethorn Savage and get rid of the Green Sanctuary Sect’s biggest rival.
“Firethorn Savage, I know you are in a serious weakened state right, so let me see how you are going to fight me. As long as I can kill you, this mountain will belong to the Green Sanctuary Sect, and we will be able to enter the third sector whenever we want!”
A prideful smile emerged on Qing Styx’s face. He seemed to be in high spirits, and he was imagining what would happen after he killed Firethorn Savage. Not only would the Green Sanctuary Sect get complete control over Misty Mountain, with the help of Firethorn Savage’s demon soul, he would certainly be able to break through the bottleneck that had trapped him for so many years and reach the Combat Soul realm.
Qing Styx flew above the skies of Misty Mountain. He held a spear in his hand, and with every step he took, his energy level would rise. Therefore, when he arrived at the center of Misty Mountain, his energy level had become extremely strong, and he portrayed an enormous killing intent. His combat strength had also been adjusted to its maximum.
“Firethorn Savage, come out and face your death!”
Qing Styx’s shout shook the entire sky. At the same time, he arrived in front of Firethorn Savage’s scene. The scene in front of him made him trip on his own feet, and he almost fell down from the skies.
He saw Firethorn Savage, but what he saw was a dead body. The entire field located in the middle of the mountain had been splashed with Firethorn Savage’s blood. It had been two days, but the blood hadn’t completely dried up yet.
Firethorn Savage’s body was covered in wounds, his brain was dug out, and cracks could be seen everywhere. A violent fight had obviously happened here.
“How could this be possible? Who did this?”
Qing Styx was stunned. In an instant, all his dreams about the Green Sanctuary Sect’s future, all his great plans, were all shattered.
With a blink of his eyes, Qing Styx entered the cave and found out the golden egg was missing as well. The situation almost made him throw up a mouthful of blood.
Qing Styx started breathing rapidly with extreme fury. It felt like someone had stolen his most precious and cherished treasures.
“Jiang Chen, it must be that young man whose name is Jiang Chen! Firethorn Savage was his real target, and he used the golden egg to frame my Green Sanctuary Sect and make us fight Firethorn Savage, and in the end, he was the one to reap all the harvest! What a crafty trick, damn it! This is ridiculous!”
In an instant, Qing Styx understood everything. Anyone could use their nose to understand what had happened by looking at the mess in front. What Qing Styx had not expected was that Firethorn Savage’s weakened state was so weak that he couldn’t even defend himself from a Heavenly Core young man and a dog. If he knew he was so weak, Qing Styx wouldn’t spend two days to recover his injuries, he would have just attacked right away.
“Jiang Chen, I’ll definitely kill you!”
Qing Styx roared out with extreme fury. He stared towards the Qi Province while covered in fury. All his hopes were gone, his fruit of labor that was supposed to belong to him was now gone, it was all taken by Jiang Chen.
