Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1979
The Sworn Brothers
“It’s touching to see the saintess after being imprisoned for more than three hundred years. I can’t imagine how much she has suffered in there.”
“That’s right. I assume that Jiang Chen has touched Demon Sovereign’s heart when he bravely took Xiao Wangqing along and ventured into the Myriad Wind Grand Formation. We’re all pleased to see the saintess once again.”
“Don’t celebrate too early. Demon Sovereign hasn’t spoken a word yet. I wonder how he’s going to deal with this.”
The experts were stirred when they saw the saintness. Apparently, Tian Lingyu had a great reputation in Demonic Immortal Island. Countless people had been feeling pity for her, hoping that she would be liberated from the sea of suffering one day.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I have two things to announce.”
Heavenly Peng spoke in a voice clear enough for everyone present to hear.
“First things first, Xiao Wangqing will officially join Demonic Immortal Island from today onwards. Three days later, he will marry my daughter, Tian Lingyu. Since all of you are already here, you might as well stay for three more days on the island as you all are to attend my daughter’s wedding ceremony,” said Heavenly Peng.
“Haha! Great! The couple’s love has finally come to fruition.”
“Demon Sovereign, congratulations! A double blessing has descended upon your home.”
“Congratulations-congratulations! This is something we should celebrate.”
Everyone offered their congratulatory words. As a matter of fact, everyone had somewhat guessed this when they saw Heavenly Peng withdrew the grand formation and brought Xiao Wangqing and Tian Lingyu to the platform. Moreover, the restrictions of the island didn’t apply to Xiao Wangqing anymore the moment he became one of them.
Of course, there were also many people who weren’t in a good mood, particularly Qin Xuanbing and Qiu Qianyun. They were the figures of the same era as Xiao Wangqing, and they had always fought against one another. Xiao Wangqing had entirely surpassed all of them now that he had officially become the son-in-law of Heavenly Peng.
“Dammit! This bastard is truly a lucky one. Can’t believe that he would be accepted as the son-in-law of Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign.”
“How lucky! Despite being in the face of death, he still soared up to fame with just one jump.” Qiu Qianyun and Qin Xuanbing spoke gloomily and enviously.
“Demon Sovereign, as this is the wedding ceremony of the saintess, and I have already come all the way here, I will naturally attend it, but I wonder what the second thing Demon Sovereign would like to announce is?” Someone asked.
“Secondly, I’m announcing to the public that Jiang Chen and I have become sworn brothers from today onwards,” Heavenly Peng spoke aloud.
This news struck every one of them like a bomb.
Countless people yelped, especially the people of the three great Immortal Courts. They immediately stood up from their seats, as if signaling Heavenly Peng to repeat what he said.
“Come, Brother Chen,” Heavenly Peng said and fell on one of his knees.
Jiang Chen lifted the bottom of his robe and knelt similarly with one knee.
Such a ceremony was undoubtedly shocking because everyone knew that Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign wasn’t joking with them.
“My God! How can this possibly happen? That kid is merely an intermediate Immortal Venerable. Even if he’s able to get past the Myriad Wind Grand Formation using the Great Void Technique, it still doesn’t qualify him to become a sworn brother of Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign.”
“This is, no doubt, the greatest ceremony I have ever seen. Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign is doing this for real. That kid is truly lucky. I have no idea what made him eligible to become Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s sworn brother as the Demon Sovereign won’t accept the offer of any of the Sovereign Lords even if they come personally.”
“What’s going on with this world? I can’t believe that Jiang Chen actually has such amazing charisma. Who else in the world will dare to bully him after this? Everyone will try to curry favor with him instead.”
Despite everyone’s reluctance to accept it, the fact still remained that Jiang Chen had become Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s sworn brother. Anyone who wanted to kill Jiang Chen would have to think twice before doing so.
Due to Jiang Chen being a disciple of the Dragon Hall of Fengchi Immortal Court and the lord of Demonic Immortal Island’s sworn brother, it wasn’t a joke to make Jiang Chen an enemy.
The faces of the experts of the three Immortal Courts darkened incredibly. Lan Xian and Tan Jinye began to grit their teeth. The outcome was too much of a blow to them. First, Xiao Wangqing had become Heavenly Peng’s son-in-law. Second, Jiang Chen had become the Demon Sovereign’s sworn brother.
Needless to say, Jiang Chen was the biggest winner in this ceremony.
Yu Huafan was utterly dumbfounded by what he heard and saw. He absolutely hadn’t expected this to occur.
“Damn! What kind of enchantment did Junior Brother Jiang use to make Heavenly Peng become his sworn brother?”
Yu Huafan was unable to figure out what had happened between Jiang Chen and Heavenly Peng, but he was certain that it had to be something big.
At the same time, he was also overjoyed. In any case, Jiang Chen was a disciple of Fengchi Immortal Court. Apart from having Jiang Chen’s fame and status increased tremendously, this also helped create a connection between the Fengchi Immortal Court and Demonic Immortal Island.
In other words, Yu Huafan and Jiang Chen had done a great job on this trip. They would surely be rewarded handsomely the moment they returned.
Big Yellow was smiling unceasingly. Although he hadn’t expected Heavenly Peng to become Jiang Chen’s sworn brother, it wasn’t a surprise to him as he knew the matter between Heavenly Peng and Void Sovereign very well. Heavenly Peng’s change of attitude towards Jiang Chen showed that he was a virtuous person.
The sworn ceremony ended. Jiang Chen and Heavenly Peng rose to their feet.
To Jiang Chen, it was truly luck that he became Heavenly Peng’s sworn brother, but to Heavenly Peng, this was a wish that he had longed to fulfil.
Just at this moment, a loud rumble sounded from the interior of the island and the ground shook.
“What’s going on? What’s happening?”
The sudden shake immediately aroused the notice of everyone. Even Heavenly Peng was at a loss of what was going on.
“Demon Sovereign, it’s coming from the ancestral grave,” said Blue Wolf Demon Sovereign.
