Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1997
Declaration of War
“There’s no need for that, Master, as I have already obtained tremendous benefits from the trip,” said Jiang Chen.
What he said was true. Moreover, he didn’t want any favors from Star Sovereign himself. What he only needed to do now was to focus on the matter regarding the Miniature Fengchi World, which would only be opened once every six months. The experts in the Immortal Court were now preparing for this expedition as it was getting closer.
Once Jiang Chen got into the miniature world, he needed to find the Ancient Shape Bloodline for Heaven Sovereign. Once Heaven Sovereign’s original cultivation base was restored, the situation would change and the Immortal Court would face a new chaos.
“By the way, Jiang Chen, there’s something I need to talk to you about.” Feng Jingyang’s tone became dead serious all of a sudden.
“What happened?” Jiang Chen asked.
Seeing Feng Jingyang’s expression, Jiang Chen could already tell that something had happened, something that was related to him.
“This is the declaration of war I received two days ago. It’s from the Eastern Profound Domain of Ethereal Immortal Domain. It’s specifically written for you. Have a look at it.”
Feng Jingyang took out a golden letter and passed it to Jiang Chen.
Hearing that it was from Eastern Profound Domain, Jiang Chen immediately opened the letter.
Jiang Chen, three days later, we’ll have a life-or-death battle in Genius Prefecture of Great Qian Empire. If you refuse to come, be prepared to see the tens of thousands of corpses when you return.
One could easily sense the sharp and brutal words through the words written on the letter, and the one who wrote it was precisely Nanbei Chao.
Flames flashed from Jiang Chen’s hands, instantly burning the letter to ashes. Jiang Chen clenched his fists, chilling intent emitted from his eyes.
The name Nanbei Chao had been following him from the very beginning, from the year they met in Qi Province. Until now, their conflict hadn’t been resolved. Now that Nanbei Chao was determined to settle the old scores, Jiang Chen had no reason to retreat.
“Jiang Chen, as far as I know, this Nanbei Chao has already advanced to Great Sovereign realm not long ago. Currently, Great Qian Empire is under his complete control. All the important figures have been imprisoned, including your wife, Yan Chenyu,” said Feng Jingyang.
Anger and killing intent burst out from Jiang Chen’s body. He could already imagine the present situation in Eastern Profound Domain. Yan Chenyu must have been defeated by Nanbei Chao, and no one else in Great Qian Empire could defeat him.
“I’m returning to Great Qian Empire.”
Without another word, Jiang Chen headed for the exit of the palace. According to Feng Jingyang, this letter arrived here two days ago, that’s to say, there was one day left, and time is of the essence.
Unlike any ordinary expert, Nanbei Chao was a madman. Jiang Chen wouldn’t doubt that Nanbei Chao would harm the people of Great Qian Empire if he didn’t show up three days later.
“Do you need my help, Jiang Chen?” asked Feng Jingyang.
“No. This is a matter between him and me. I’ll personally resolve it. After all, it has been so long. It’s time to put an end to this.”
Jiang Chen declined Feng Jingyang’s offer. He had to be the one to confront Nanbei Chao who had the same thought as him – putting an end to their conflict once and for all. If Jiang Chen asked Feng Jingyang’s help to get rid of his enemy, it basically showed that he, Jaing Chen, was afraid of facing Nanbei Chao.
If this was the case, even if Nanbei Chao was killed, a trauma would be left in his heart, which would become a serious blow to his future cultivation.
“Junior Brother, let me go with you.” Yu Huafan approached Jiang Chen.
“I understand your good intention, but I can handle this myself.”
Finished speaking, he vanished in a swoosh. Before leaving the Immortal Court, he told Big Yellow about the news via divine sense.
“Little Chen, why are you in such a hurry?” Big Yellow saw the unpleasant look on Jiang Chen’s face and asked.
“Nanbei Chao has already stepped into the Great Sovereign realm. The entire Great Qian Empire is within his control now. He waged a life-or-death battle against me tomorrow. We must hurry back as soon as possible,” said Jiang Chen.
“Dammit! That bastard is truly a lingering and annoying ghost, but it’s true that the two of you should settle your scores once and for all. However, he has already reached the First Grade Great Sovereign realm. I’m afraid that he won’t be easy to deal with,” said Big Yellow with slight concern.
He knew Jiang Chen all too well. He knew that Jiang Chen would never let him interfere. Jiang Chen would insist on resolving the matter himself.
“I’ll fight regardless of whether I’m certain or not. Presently, my cultivation base has already reached the peak of Immortal Venerable realm, and Nanbei Chao has only recently advanced to Great Sovereign realm. I don’t fear him,” said Jiang Chen, brimming with confidence, given his present state.
“Not exactly. Nanbei Chao isn’t the same as ordinary Great Sovereigns. He’s the reincarnation of a Great Sovereign, has great experience and incredible control of the Great Sovereign Law. With your current strength, it’s going to be extremely difficult for you to defeat him. Furthermore, he has the Monarch Sword, a weapon that’s as powerful as the Immortal Burying Coffin.” Big Yellow said worriedly.
“I’ll fight no matter what.”
Jiang Chen’s combat intent soared. Their battle was inevitable. The lives of all the experts in Great Qian Empire was now in Nanbei Chao’s hands. Jiang Chen was left with no other option.
“Little Chen, take a look at this.” Big Yellow opened his mouth and spat out a sword.
“Immortal Execution Sword.”
Jiang Chen recognized the sword. It was the natal Sovereign Weapon of Immortal Execution King. It hadn’t been seen ever since it had integrated with Big Yellow.
The sword was golden yellow. Boundless Sovereign might was emitted from it. Judging from its qi, it wasn’t any weaker than the Monarch Sword and Immortal Burying Coffin.
“The constant aid of my bloodline has almost restored it to its peak state. I have also instilled my will into it. I’m now handing it to you. You will be able to control it without resistance. When the time comes, use this sword to fight Nanbei Chao.” Big Yellow handed the sword to Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen didn’t decline the offer. As he took the sword, the body of the sword trembled and buzzed. When the agitated will of Big Yellow within the sword sensed the qi of Jiang Chen, it immediately recognized Jiang Chen as the wielder.
