Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1977
Xiao Wangqing’s Chance
Jiang Chen’s heart was filled with excitement. In spite of that, he still couldn’t entirely adapt himself to that feeling because having Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign as his big brother was equivalent to gaining a powerful assistance. His main purpose in going to Fengchi Immortal Court was to help Heaven Sovereign oppose Star Sovereign. However, since the forces of Star Sovereign was deeply ingrained in FengChi Immortal Court, and he alone possessed overwhelming power, it would be an arduous effort to completely overturn him.
All in all, if a true battle broke out in the future, having Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s help would surely be a good thing. With that thought in mind, Jiang Chen felt that his trip to Demonic Immortal Island this time was not in vain. Instead, it was a fruitful trip.
“Haha. Very well, Brother Chen. Today, you and me have become brothers. I’ve been hoping for it for years and it is now considered fulfilled. This is a gift from me. Take it.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign burst into a hearty laughter, expressing his joy and happiness. His hand held an item and handed over to Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen took a glimpse on the item which Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign passed to him, and discovered that it was the Vermillion Bird Divine Blood given by the Fengchi Immortal Court. Now, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign intended to give it back to him. This unexpected outcome made Jiang Chen at a loss of what to do.
“Big Brother. This Vermillion Bird Divine Blood is what we presented to you as a gift. It has great benefits for you as it can help you to attain the Seventh Grade of the Great Sovereign realm. This gift of yours is too valuable for me. This little brother can never accept it.”
Jiang Chen rejected the offer. Although he had also coveted the Vermillion Bird Divine Blood for a long time, it now belonged to Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign.
“Brother Chen, you’re wrong. The Vermillion Bird Divine Blood sure is helpful to me. But unfortunately, my speed has already reached its limit. Even with the help of the blood, it is still difficult to improve it. Moreover, I plan to rely on my own ability to attain the Seventh Grade of Demon Sovereign without any help from external force. When I achieve the Seventh Grade, it means that I am already at a higher grade in the Great Sovereign realm. This step is extremely crucial. I must do it on my own. If I am able to do it, it will prove my ability to continue climbing to a much higher level. Furthermore, I, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, had never once take my gifts back. If you don’t accept it, it simply means that you look down on your Big Brother.”
As Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign spoke, his face turned gloomy, revealing a hint of anger on his expression.
Without any further hesitation, Jiang Chen grabbed the Vermillion Bird Divine Blood from Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s hand. He did not have the guts to underestimate his superior Big Brother. Since Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign had given him no other choices, there was no reason for Jiang Chen to be modest anymore.
With the Vermillion Bird Divine Blood in his hands, Jiang Chen was extremely happy. In fact, there was no reason for him not to be happy. A drop of Vermillion Blood Divine Blood was enough to enable him to directly break through to the late Immortal Venerable Realm. Perhaps, he might even reach the peak of the late Immortal Venerable Realm, without affecting his foundation.
Not only that, the blood contained a trace of blood vein of the Vermillion Blood. If Jiang Chen absorbed it, he could use the dragon transformation skill to refine the Flame of Vermillion Blood. Currently, his body also possessed the True Dragon Flame, True Thunder Flame, Qilin Saint Flame and the Sun Flame. Taking the Divine Flame of Vermillion Blood into consideration, he would then possess 5 types of Supreme Flames. In short, the benefits he could reap from the blood was simply endless.
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s lips curved into a broad smile. Perhaps, he was the only person who would feel so happy after giving away the Divine Blood of the Vermillion Bird.
“Big Brother. The passion and love that Xiao Wangqing and the saintess have for each other is truly touching. Has Big Brother ever considered to fulfill their wishes?”
Jiang Chen was unable to restrain himself from asking Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, while taking a glance at Xiao Wangqing and Tian Lingyu who were outside of the light shield. Now, since he and the latter were treating each other as brothers, he really had to say something in order to help Xiao Wangqing get what he wanted.
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign turned his head and looked at the couple whose faces were filled with bliss and happiness, especially Tian Lingyu. After more than three hundred years, it was his first time seeing her daughter beam with pleasure. As a father, it would be impossible for him to have no feelings about her daughter.
“Brother Chen, ah. I am not trying to be ruthless and heartless towards my own daughter. But Yu Er* is my daughter; the woman whom I dearly doted. My heart aches too for locking her up here all these years. I was waiting for her to change her mind and forget about that man. But now, it seems impossible for her to do so. However, the rules of our Demon Immortal Island can never be changed. They are set by the saintess of the first generation. Not even I have the right to go against it. As a member of the Demonic Immortal Island, every woman is disallowed to marry any foreign man, especially the saintess. The identity that Yu Er possesses is just too sensitive.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign expressed his thought with a helpless expression.
“I have an idea that can satisfy both sides. I wonder if Big Brother is willing to listen.” Jiang Chen said.
“Please speak, Brother Chen.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s eyes brightened up and stared at Jiang Chen.
“During my stay in Demon Immortal Island these past few days, I’ve noticed something. Although this island is a place for the demon race to gather, there are still some humans residing here. I believe that they had existed here before the Demonic Immortal Island was established and therefore, became members of the island, am I right?” Jiang Chen asked.
“Yes. Demonic Immortal Island was said to be inhabited by mostly humans at first. However, it was eventually occupied by the demon race, and the island was named ‘Demonic Immortal Island’. Even so, there are still some humans who continued to reside in the island. This is why you can see small groups of humans here. But we don’t repel their existence. In this island, be it human or beast, we are all one united group.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign nodded his head when he explained.
“If that’s the case, it will be easy to handle. Since the women of the Demon Immortal Island are prohibited from marrying any foreign men, what about letting Xiao Wangqing join the island by making him one of the inhabitants of the island? If he is also a member of the island, then it will not be against the rules for them to be together. By doing so, the rule of the island is not violated; the conflict between you and your daughter can be resolved, and at the same time, the couple can live a blissful life. Isn’t it killing three eagles with a single arrow?” Jiang Chen shared his idea.
After hearing Jiang Chen’s words, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign nodded his head in agreement. “Brother Chen, your idea is not bad. I can tell that you have a good relationship with Xiao Wanqing as you are willing to risk your life by entering into the Myriad Wind Platform. As such, I will give you face. As long as he is willing to join the Demonic Immortal Island, I will grant them their wish.”
“Thank you, Big Brother. Actually, Senior Xiao once saved my life. I owe him a favor and I promised myself that I will repay him someday.”
Jiang Chen smiled. The heavy stone within his heart was finally lifted. Deep inside, he began to feel grateful to Void Sovereign whom he had never met before.
If it wasn’t for him, it would be extremely difficult to settle the marriage of Xiao Wangqing and Tian Lingyu. Based on Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s temper, it is impossible for him to give me face.
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign waved his hand, and the shield that surrounded the both of them immediately vanished. They sauntered towards the couple. As soon as Xiao Wangqing caught sight of them, he quickly greeted them.
“Xiao Wangqing, today Brother Chen has pleaded for your sake. I am going to give you a chance.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign opened his mouth and uttered.
Brother Chen? Who is Brother Chen? Don’t tell me it’s Jiang Chen. Is he joking with me?
Xiao Wangqing was rooted on the spot. His eyes involuntarily turned towards Jiang Chen who wore a broad smile on his face.
1. Yu Er is also Tian Lingyu. Er (儿) is a word especially used by parents to address their children.
