Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1978
We Are One Family
“Senior Xiao, Brother Heavenly Peng and I have become sworn brothers. From today onwards, we are one family.”
Jiang Chen smiled as he spoke. He knew that it would certainly be a big blow to Xiao Wanqing, but he had to tell him no matter what. After all, it was already an unchangeable fact.
Xian Wanqing and Tian Lingyu cried out in alarm and staggered to their feet, as if they were going to fall on the ground. They widened their eyes and looked at Jiang Chen, and then shifted their gaze to Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, feeling amused by what Jiang Chen had said. But judging from the expressions of the both of them, Jiang Chen seemed to be telling the truth.
Jiang Chen and Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign became sworn brothers? This joke had gone a little too far. Xiao Wangqing and Tian Lingyu could not accept it for a moment. The two of them knew the Demon Sovereign all too well. The Sovereign was known for his aloof and proud attitude. In other words, there weren’t many people that could gain his attention and respect. Even the Lords of the Nine Immortal Courts who tried very hard to cozy up to him were ignored by him.
Now, how could Jiang Chen, an intermediate Immortal Venerable Realm kid, able to become sworn brothers with Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign? What on earth happened to the world?
“Jiang Chen, is this true?”
Xiao Wangqing could not believe it.
“Precisely. If we follow the seniority in the family, I guess you need to address Brother Chen as uncle in the future.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign was the one who answered.
What the f**k?
After hearing what the Demon Sovereign said, Xiao Wangqing almost spurted a mouthful of blood. Wasn’t it funny to have Jiang Chen as his uncle? Tian Lingyu who was standing beside him did not know whether to laugh or cry. Earlier, Xiao Wangqing had already told her about Jiang Chen. Thanks to him, Xiao Wangqing was able to intrude the Myriad Wind Grand Formation and reunite with her. Therefore, deep inside her heart, she was extremely grateful to Jiang Chen.
At this moment, Tian Lingyu’s eyes were directly staring Jiang Chen without even blinking. She really wanted to know how charming this young man was for making her father decide to call him his blood brother.
As Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s daughter, she understood her father more than anyone else. He was an arrogant, obstinate and hard-to-please person. In this world, there weren’t many people that could make him look at them in the eye. Up until now, only Jiang Chen was able to receive such a treatment from him. That alone was enough to prove that Jiang Chen was indeed an exceptional person. One thing she knew for sure was that her father had never addressed any one as his brother or even become sworn brothers with anyone for no reason at all. Not even the lords that were on par with him were considered as his brothers. That is to say Jiang Chen had done something that none of the nine lords could do.
“Big Brother, let’s not talk about seniority first. It would only make this little brother feel ashamed and embarrassed.”
Jiang Chen shook his head. He was also in an awkward situation where he didn’t know whether to be happy or sad. If Xiao Wangqing really addressed him as Uncle Chen, he might not be able to take it.
“Senior Xiao, I already talked with Big Brother earlier. The love between you and the saintess has really touched us. As such, Big Brother intends to give both of you a chance. The rules of Demonic Immortal Island must never be violated. So, only if you promise to join the Demonic Immortal Island from now onwards can we choose an auspicious day to hold the wedding ceremony for you and the saintess. After parting for more than three hundred years, the two of you can finally reunite. In the future, the two of you will be able to live a blissful life that you’ve both longed for.”
Jiang Chen opened his mouth and spoke what’s on Demon Sovereign’s mind.
As soon as Jiang Chen’s words faded, Tian Lingyu’s face was instantly filled with ecstasy, and she shot a hopeful look with tears welling up in her eyes towards Xiao Wangqing. She had been waiting for far too long for this day to come. But it truly was out of her expectation that her dream would come true today.
“I am willing.”
Xiao Wangqing promised without hesitation. For Tian Lingyu, he was willing to do anything even if he has to risk his life for it, let alone joining the Demonic Immortal Island.
Besides, Xiao Wangqing was a person who was cut off from others. To him, anywhere would be the same. The Demonic Immortal Island was the largest island in the sea. It possessed the strength to even compete with the Immortal Court. As such, it was not a disgrace for him to join the Demonic Immortal Island. Moreover, by doing so, he would be able to stay together with Tian Lingyu. Therefore, to Xiao Wangqing, staying at the island would bring him no harm; instead, he would be able to fulfill his biggest wish.
“Mm-hmm. Since you agree to it, from now onwards, you are now a resident of the Demonic Immortal Island. A few days later, I will personally host your wedding ceremony.” Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign spoke.
“Thank you, Father!”
Tian Lingyu suddenly knelt down on the ground with a flop, shedding a flood of tears. She did not imagine that this day would actually come true, not even in her dreams.
“Hai! Yu Er, finally, I can hear you call me ‘Father’ once more after all these years. Good. It’s good to hear it again.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign let out a sigh. At this moment, it seemed like the unpleasantness between him and Tian Lingyu was completely reconciled. The deep feelings and love that a father and a daughter had for each other had finally returned and filled their hearts.
“Thank you, Demon Sovereign!”
Seeing Tian Lingyu reacting in such a manner, Xiao Wangqing also hurriedly expressed his gratitude towards Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign.
“Why? Aren’t you going to change the way you address me?”
The Demon Sovereign glared at Xiao Wangqing.
Immense joy was plastered all over Xiao Wangqing’s face. He turned and walked to Jiang Chen without uttering any words, then solemnly cupped his fist to show how indebted he was to Jiang Chen. Deep inside, he felt that he would not be able to repay Jiang Chen for the rest of his life.
He clearly knew that it was all because of Jiang Chen that he and Tian Lingyu would have such a happy ending. It was an undeniable truth. Although he did not know how Jiang Chen suddenly got so close to Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, in his mind, Jiang Chen had just created another miracle.
This man was like a mystery. There is always a unique charm on him that was even able to make Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign be attracted to him.
“Haha. Very well. Today is my birthday. Furthermore, I have just solved a matter of mind. Two happy events had come right at the same time. Hahaha. Let’s go.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign laughed heartily. With a wave of his sleeve, the Myriad Wind Grand Formation on the Myriad Wind Platform abruptly dispersed. The scene which was originally filled with the howling of the strong winds suddenly turned peaceful and quiet in a flash. Since Tian Lingyu had already regained her freedom, there was no need for the Myriad Wind Grand Formation anymore.
In a flash, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign brought Xiao Wangqing and Tian Lingyu out of the Myriad Wind Platform and appeared at the tall platform where everyone gathered.
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s return drew everyone's attention to the Demon Immortal Square. Everyone at the scene thought that there must be a change in the ceremony.
At the moment, all of them were filled with confusion. They only saw Jiang Chen successfully passing through the Myriad Wind Grand Formation with Xiao Wangqing. As for what happened on the Myriad Wind Platform, none of them had any clue because of the Myriad Wind Grand Formation. But one thing they knew for sure when their eyes gazed upon the tall platform was that Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign had some words to speak.
“She is the saintess of the Demonic Immortal Island? She really is devastatingly beautiful, ah.”
“She’s indeed the most beautiful woman in the world. She was rumored to be imprisoned for more than three hundred years. It’s really unexpected that she is freed today. Apart from that, the Myriad Wind Grand Formation has disappeared too. Evidently, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign has changed his mind.”
“But no matter what, the rules of the Demonic Immortal Island can never be changed. I wonder how the Demon Sovereign would deal with Xiao Wangqing.”
Most of them saw the legendary saintess for the first time. None of them could maintain their composure after witnessing her angelic beauty.
