Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 2014
Not Giving the Face
The arrival of the three Sovereign Lords had brought unimaginable pressure to Genius Prefecture. Normal people simply couldn’t withstand the pressure that was released simultaneously by the Sixth Grade Great Sovereigns. Those who had lower strength would tremble with pale face, or might even suffocate in such a pressure.
Upon seeing this situation, Yan Chenyu waved her hand creating an icy veil over the sky of Genius Prefecture. This veil meant nothing much to the Sixth Grade Great Sovereigns, but it managed to cut off the pressure released by them. At least, the people in Genius Prefecture felt much better because of the existence of the icy veil.
Countless people in Genius Prefecture heaved a sigh of relief, looking up to Yan Chenyu who was hovering in the sky with eyes full of gratitude.
In the void, three insolent silhouettes emerged. There were three middle-aged guys who looked like around forty years old. They dressed differently, however their vigor and manner happened to be similar.
Their faces were filled with calm but authoritative temperament. The heroic spirit especially possessed by these figures were on their foreheads. Each of their casual action would simply release a sense of superiority, bringing others into submission.
Ethereal Sovereign Lord, Mi Luo Sovereign Lord, Radiance Sovereign Lord.
The three Sovereign Lords appeared at the same time. Perhaps this was the first time that the three of them appeared together in the Immortal World.
There were nine main Immortal Domains in the Immortal World. There was a time for the nine Sovereign Lords to get together, however it would only happen in the supreme Immortal Court. It was indeed unprecedented to see this situation: three of the nine Sovereign Lords, adding Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, all appeared together today at this insignificant Genius Prefecture.
At its best, the Great Qian Empire was only one of the top influences in the Eastern Profound Domain. An influence as such would never be in the eyes of the Immortal Court. However, there were such numbers of legendary masters today because of Jiang Chen. It’s enough for Great Qian Empire to become well known merely by this occasion.
Seeing the arrival of the three Sovereign Lords, Wu Yuanyang and the other two came to their respective Sovereign Lords and saluted. Then, they told everything that had happened here.
Ethereal Sovereign Lord nodded, then stepped forwards and appeared directly not far from the front of Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign.
“Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign. It has been a long time since we last met,” he greeted.
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign was an illustrious Great Demon in the Immortal World. Although Ethereal Sovereign Lord was a Sovereign Lord, he still had to give him face.
“Ethereal Sovereign Lord, we haven’t seen each other for a long time and your Immortal Court has advanced greatly. So many Great Sovereigns have come and surrounded a mere Half Sovereign. If this was spread out, I am afraid that your reputation would be damaged extensively.”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign said it straight to the point, bringing the subject of Jiang Chen.
Obviously, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign did not want to waste any time. The only purpose for his trip today was to help solve the vendetta between Jiang Chen and the three Immortal Courts.
“Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign. If it’s not because you, one of the greatest men, have appeared here, how I would be here. That frenzied Jiang Chen, the crackbrain, has repeatedly killed the people of my Immortal Court. If I don't give him some punishments today, the damage to our reputation would be even greater. Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, don’t you say so?”
Ethereal Sovereign Lord said with a smile. From his tone, it sounded like he did not want to get into a deadlock with Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, as being unpleasant towards Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign brought no benefit to his Immortal Court.
However, what Ethereal Sovereign Lord said was very clear. It seemed like he had no plan to let go of Jiang Chen.
“If this happened in the past, you guys can kill whoever you want to kill. I, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, don’t have such free time to take care of your trivial matters, but not today, Jiang Chen is my sworn brother. The fact that Jiang Chen and I have pledged brotherhood and became sworn brothers at the Demonic Immortal Island was announced publicly to the world. If someone put my brother to death, that will definitely make me look incompetent. How could I continue staying in the Immortal World if that happened. ”
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign’s attitude was also incomparably strong. Since he appeared here today, he must keep Jiang Chen safe by all means.
“Humph! What you said sounds really pleasant, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign. Even if you didn't come here today, I would still like to visit your Demonic Immortal Island and ask. ”
At this moment, a snort of contempt came out, Radiance Sovereign Lord was striding forward. This man had a sculpted face and his glazing eyes were shining out rays of lights. Just by looking at him, one should know that he was a short-tempered man.
“Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, we have shown you respect by sending people to greet and congratulate you on your birthday. They even brought valuable gifts to you, however none of them had managed to come back. They were killed in the Ocean Domain. Don’t you think that you should give us an explanation regarding this matter?”
Radiance Sovereign Lord said loudly. As a Sovereign Lord of the Immortal Court, naturally, he had his kind of mightiness.
Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign couldn’t help frowning when he heard this. Later he had come to know more about this matter: All the people of the Ethereal Immortal Courts, except Lan Xian, had been killed before heading to Demonic Immortal Island. Another two people from the Immortal Courts were killed at the Ocean Domain. Without much thought, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign knew this must be done by Jiang Chen.
Taking the entire Immortal World in view, perhaps Jiang Chen was the only one who dared to take action against the people of the Immortal Courts.
“Jiang Chen has killed our people. Tell me, what shall I do regarding this account?
Radiance Sovereign Lord expressed an imposing manner, seeking justice for those who were killed.
“Don't get mad. Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign is here today to solve the grudges between you and Jiang Chen. It is impossible for you to kill my brother. I will not comply with that. Instead, how about you lot give me some face and write off the grudges between you and Jiang Chen. After all, do not seek trouble with Jiang Chen and he definitely would not kill your people in rash again. In addition, I will make a compensation to you,” Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign offered. He wanted to act as a peacemaker.
Regarding the current situation, if reconciliation was feasible, that would be the best. At the present time, Jiang Chen’s competence was indeed weak, and he had no strength at all to compete with the Immortal Courts. What Jiang Chen did had completely alarmed the high ranking people of the Immortal Court, even the Sovereign Lord had to come personally to put him to death. Despite being powerful, it’s impossible for Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign to fight the three Sovereign Lords at the same time.
In that case, that would not only fail to save Jiang Chen, but also implicate the Demonic Immortal Island.
“Write off all the debts? This is really amusing. Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign, we’ll give you face, but your condition is unacceptable. Regarding the issue of Jiang Chen, we will not make any concessions for sure. As for the compensation, you thought that we, the Immortal Courts, would put your said compensation in our eyes?
Mi Luo Sovereign Lord said, seemingly not wanting to give face to Heavenly Peng.
“Heavenly Peng, we are not in the Ocean Domain. Do not think that you can shut out the heavens with one of your palm and hoodwink us. Let me tell you. Today, our Immortal Courts must kill Jiang Chen. I urged you to better not meddle in our business.”
Radiance Sovereign Lord showed his incomparably strong manner to state his firm attitude again. Their enormous loss in the Demonic Immortal Island had caused blame and even hatred towards Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign to grow in the Sovereign Lords’ hearts. Today Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign even came to poke his nose into this affair; the three of them, of course, would not buy what he was selling.
