Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1913
Ling Er’s Determination
The scene suddenly became extremely tense. Yang Junlong and the others had been fully encircled by the barbarians. Their deaths were certain if it hadn’t been for the help of Zuo Ling Er. Given Wuke Manjun’s style of conduct, he would never give Jiang Chen and the rest any chance of escaping.
But now, Wuke Manjun had no choice but to follow their wish as he wouldn’t dare joke around with Zuo Ling Er’s life.
“Go now. If you dare to hurt our saintess, I’ll kill you all even if you arrived in Sovereign Domain,” said Wuke Majun coolly.
None of the barbarians around spoke a word. They wouldn’t dare deny the words of Wuke Manjun despite their reluctance. Wuke Manjun had extremely high prestige and status in their world. And his cultivation base of peak Eighth Grade Great Sovereign could intimidate almost everyone except those hidden ancient experts. Thus, disobeying this unparalleled Great Sovereign was no different than digging one’s own grave.
Without further ado, Yang Junlong tore open the barrier of Desolate Ancient Land, and disappeared into the passageway leading back to Sovereign Domain with the others in a flash. Soon, they could sense the qi of Sovereign Domain and reached the end of the passageway.
Yang Junlong and Jiang Chen heaved a big sigh of relief. The situation just now was too dangerous.
“Ling Er, many thanks to you this time, or else we would’ve been finished,” said Jiang Chen with a smile.
He had to admit that Desolate Ancient Land was a hundred times more dangerous than what was stated in the legends. As Desolate Ancient Land was under the full control of the Barbarian World, they knew everything that happened in Desolate Ancient Land and could act at any time.
He recalled what Big Yellow said about having absolute strength before rescuing him, and understood what Big Yellow meant now. Although he had obtained the help of Yang Junlong in this journey, the consequences would’ve been unimaginable if they hadn’t met Zuo Ling Er – not only could they not save Big Yellow, but Yang Junlong would also fall with them.
At the same time, they felt fortunate to have arrived on time. If not, Big Yellow might have been taken by the barbarians.
Thus, it was worth the trip despite all the danger.
“Big Brother, quickly return to Sovereign Domain now. I have to go back to the Barbarian World.” Zuo Ling Er said with a look of indifference.
“No, you can’t go back. Wuke Family cares only about your bloodline but not you. If you return to them, your bloodline will be refined sooner or later.”
Jiang Chen protested instantly. It wasn’t easy for them to reunite so he would never agree to let her return to the Barbarian World.
“Big Brother, Ling Er intended to go with you but I can’t for now. Wuke Manjun has already locked on us. If I follow you into Sovereign Domain, Wuke Manjun will use all he has to pull us back to Desolate Ancient Land. He’s a man of his word. As long as I return, you all will be able to arrive in Sovereign Domain safely.”
Zuo Ling Er said, feeling incredibly disappointed at the moment. Previously when she saw Jiang Chen, she thought that she would never be separated from him, never have to tremble with fear every day, and never have to be in the sea of suffering ever again; she also thought that they could return to the Immortal World together after they found Big Yellow.
But everything had changed. Things didn’t go the way they imagined. The emergence of Wuke Manjun had shattered her dream. If she didn’t return, none of them would be able to escape. She would rather sacrifice herself for the sake of Jiang Chen and his friends’ life.
“She’s right. Wuke Manjun’s qi has already locked on us. If she doesn’t return, given Wuke Manjun’s character, he’s surely going to come and kill us even if we manage to arrive at Sovereign Domain, and take the little girl back.” Yang Junlong shook his head and spoke fairly.
“Dammit! But we can’t let Ling Er go back and die!”
Dragon Shisan was enraged. This was the first time he and Jiang Chen felt so weak and vulnerable. They weren’t worth a fart in front of a true powerhouse.
“Is there any other way?”
Jiang Chen asked in a deep tone. He was also clueless about how he should deal with this.
“Big Brother, Ling Er will be fine. Believe me. We’ll meet again. If worst comes to worst, come to the Barbarian World and save me when you get stronger.” Zuo Ling Er stuck out her tongue at Jiang Chen, then turned and left.
Jiang Chen saw the tears trickling down Ling Er’s eyes the instant she turned around.
Jiang Chen called out to her, wanting to pull her back, but she was already far away. Her last moment of determination left a sharp thorn in his heart. The last thing he could bear in his life was to let the people around him sacrifice themselves for him.
He roared at her fading figure, feeling completely powerless for the first time in his life.
However, he knew full well that if Zuo Ling Er didn’t return, all of them would have to die here. This was the undeniable fact. Zuo Ling Er had sacrificed herself in exchange for their lives.
Yang Junlong heaved a deep sigh, and clapped Jiang Chen’s shoulder. “Let’s go.”
Jiang Chen’s furious eyes stared at the seemingly endless passageway and he clenched his fists and said, “Ling Er, I’ll come back and save you. I’m going to flatten the Barbarian World one day.”
Afterwards, he turned and flew towards the other end of the passageway along with Yang Junlong and Dragon Shisan.
Compared to the stifling atmosphere in Desolate Ancient Land, the exuberant Immortal Qi in Sovereign Domain was clearly more invigorating, but the three of them didn’t seem to notice the difference between the two environments. The disappearing figure of Zuo Ling Er was like a weight pressing against their hearts, making their breathing incomparably difficult.
“Little Chen, let’s go back.”
Dragon Shisan said. He didn’t know what to say to comfort Jiang Chen because nothing he could say would work.
Jiang Chen nodded. He was a very rational person and knew that the matter of Zuo Ling Er had become the past. The most important thing right now was to improve his cultivation base as quickly as possible so that he could save her from the hands of his enemies one day.
Plus, they couldn’t stay in Sovereign Domain for too long. Now that Big Yellow had been rescued, it was time for them to return to the Immortal World.
