Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 209
Chapter 209 – Slaughter
Everyone had a change in their expression. When the three men who were in great rage and were getting ready to storm in saw the Early Divine Core warrior being chopped in half by Jiang Chen, they were immediately scared and stopped their movements.
“Enemy attack! Enemy attack!”
The three of them immediately turned around and alarmed the others as they fled towards the inner parts of the stronghold. They were scared they would get sliced in half if they ran too slowly, so none of them even bothered caring about the adult man’s safety.
Looking at this, the adult man who had his chest pierced by Jiang Chen’s sword had lost all hope. This young man in front of him was too terrifying, there was no way he would spare his life.
Jiang Chen waved his hand and unleashed a beam of green light into the adult man’s wounded chest. The poison broke into tiny threads of green light that looking like mini poisonous snakes.
It was pain that even an iron man couldn’t withstand. The horrifying screams of the adult man sounded out throughout the entire stronghold. He kept rolling and struggling like crazy on the floor. Due to his cultivation base being stronger than the others, his ability to withstand the poison was far greater than the previous men. And because of this, the pain he was suffering was far greater than that of the previous men.
“Enjoy the taste of pain and death.”
Jiang Chen said in an indifferent one. He turned around and looked at Tian Yishan and the few other men who were laying on the floor, including Guan Yiyun. All of them had suffered severe injuries. But luckily, the poison in their bodies had been completely absorbed by Jiang Chen, which saved them from instant death.
“Brother Jiang, what should we do now? I think this secret chamber has been surrounded by Yang Shuo’s men right now.”
Tian Yishan asked. No doubt, Jiang Chen’s performance was incredible, but he knew Yang Shuo very well. As a genius from the Myriad Sword Sect in the Jiang Province, Yang Shuo’s cultivation level and tricks were far beyond ordinary men. Now, they had wreaked havoc in Yang Shuo’s stronghold and killed his men. With his temper, he wouldn’t let them get away with it.
“I said it before; blood will be shed, and there will be no survivors. I want to establish my authority in the outer perimeter of Inferno City and get revenge for Guan Yiyun. No one is allowed to harm my friends.”
Jiang Chen said with a calm voice. He wasn’t worried about that Yang Shuo at all. If this was before he had gained 600 Dragon Marks, he might not have had such confidence. But now, Yang Shuo posed not threat to him.
Big Yellow’s eyes lit up brightly. He knew Jiang Chen really well, his buddy had become really furious today. With this, blood would be shed everywhere in this stronghold.
“Keep Guan Yiyun and the rest of the men in this secret chamber, let’s go meet that Yang Shuo.”
Jiang Chen tidied up his clothing, and with the sword in his hand, he started walking out from the secret chamber. He would show no mercy today. In inferno Hell, slaughtering was something perfectly normal, as lives were worthless in a place like this.
“You men inside, get he hell out and face your deaths!”
Within the stronghold, someone shouted out loudly into the secret chamber.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow walked out side by side, while Tian Yishan followed closely behind. They walked step by step out from the secret chamber, and arrived at an empty field in the manor.
Right as they exited the secret chamber, Jiang Chen immediately sensed numerous killing intents and ferocious energies, enough to fill the skies above. There were even some demonic energies hovering around the place.
When the trio walked out from the secret chamber, over 20 men immediately rushed over and surrounded them. All of these men carried combat weapons, and there were even four powerful Divine Core demon beasts mixed in the group that looked brutal and ruthless.
Doesn’t matter if it was the number of men or demon beasts, it all went to show Yang Shuo’s incredible tricks. In this Inferno City, being able to make so many people follow him willingly, and can even make Divine Core demon beasts surrender to him; all of this was enough to show what amazing strength Yang Shuo possessed.
“That’s him, he killed a few of our men!”
When one of the men saw Jiang Chen, he immediately shouted out loudly. Next to the man, there stood a Mid Divine Core old man. The man looked to be in his fifties, his body seemed full of power and grandeur, and he wore animal skin as clothing.
“Tian Yishan, so it’s you! I never thought you would still be alive, and even managed to get help! It’s too bad you don’t know how to cherish your life and didn’t escape while you had the chance!”
The old man said upon seeing Tian Yishan.
“Brother Jiang, this man is Liu Kui, he is a cruel guy, and a Mid Divine Core warriors. He was exiled to Inferno Hell by a big sect in the Jian Province, and he is now one of Yang Shuo’s followers. He’s not easy to deal with.”
Tian Yishan told Jiang Chen through his divine sense.
Jiang Chen had a grin on his face. He wasn’t afraid when surround by so many strong men. Jiang Chen turned to Liu Kui and spoke with a calm voice, “Where is Yang Shuo? Tell him to get here now.”
“Haha, do you really think that handling someone like you requires young master Yang Shuo to be here in person? Me alone is more than enough to handle all of your, there is no need to disturb young master Yang Shuo’s cultivation.”
Liu Kui burst into laughter. He was very confident in his own abilities, therefore he didn’t take Jiang Chen seriously.
“Is that so?”
After saying that, Jiang Chen swayed his body and swung his sword.
Three screams sounded out, three men were slashed into half. Two of them were peak Heavenly Core warriors, and the last one was an Early Divine Core warrior.
Duo to Jiang Chen’s sudden quick attack, none of them had time to react, and were killed instantly.
The expressions of everyone here changed dramatically. No one had expected that in this situation, not only did Jiang Chen not beg for mercy, he actually had the courage to attack. This was outrageous.
What was even more frightening was Jiang Chen’s ability. He could actually kill an Early Divine Core warrior so easily. This was extremely frightening, even Liu Kui had a change in expression.
“Damn it, attack! Kill them all!”
Liu Kui shouted his order out loudly. Immediately, everyone in the stronghold unleash all their energy and started attacking Jiang Chen’s group. The three powerful Divine Core demon beasts let out brutal roars as well, and they threw their mountain like bodies towards Jiang Chen.
“Kill them all, leave no survivors.”
Jiang Chen said with an extremely cruel voice.
Big Yellow let out a loud roar. Golden colored symbols blinked on his head, and in an instant, he transformed into a trail of light and forcefully dashed forwards. At the same time, Tian Yishan drew out his combat weapon and started attacking with red eyes. His injuries weren’t as bad as Guan Yiyun’s, and after consuming the Revival Pill given to him by Jiang Chen, he was almost fully recovered. With his current combat strength, he had no problem dealing with ordinary Early Divine Core warriors.
Big Yellow was laughing out heartily. He really liked this kind of bloody and adventurous scene. Only problem was that he felt somewhat bored, as his innate abilities had yet to awaken, and he could only use his speed to dodge his opponents’ attacks. He dodged the Divine Core warriors, and focused only on attacking the Heavenly Core warriors.
No Heavenly Core warrior could withstand a single blow from his metal like head. They all died miserable deaths.
Jiang Chen was attacking with the Soaring Heavens Sword, and nobody could withstand more than a single strike. Blood splashed all around, and men were slashed in half by Jiang Chen.
Blood-curdling screeches filled the entire stronghold, and so did the angry roars of the demon beasts. They mixed into a beautiful melody of slaughter.
Blood splashed to the skies, the atmosphere was filled with an intense smell of blood. In just a mere minute, the group of 20 people was left with only 3 men. Besides Liu Kui, there were another two Early Divine Core warriors still alive.
Looking at the dead bodies on the floor, and the headless demon beast corpses, these three men felt it difficult to breath. Even Liu Kui had a drastic change in expression.
Now, Liu Kui had lost his confidence. The young man in front of him was too frightening, no one could withstand a single strike from him. Even he himself couldn’t do something like this.
Liu Kui sensed a dangerous feeling from Jiang Chen. He knew he was no match for this young man.
“Old Liu, what should we do now? The enemy is too strong, we have suffered great losses now.”
One of the men asked.
“We have no choice but to wake young master from his cultivation, only young master can kill this young man.”
Liu Kui told the man. At the same time, an invisible thread of divine sense shot out from his mind towards the inner area of the stronghold.
“You three have to die as well.”
Jiang Chen raised his sword and pointed it at the three men in front of him.
“Haha, young master will soon arrive! Young man, you have killed so many of our men, be prepared to bear the endless fury and torture of the young master!”
Liu Kui burst out into laughter. However, before the smile disappeared from his face, Jiang Chen had disappeared from his sight.
Immediately after Jiang Chen had disappeared, a painful scream sounded out next to Liu Kui. Another Early Divine Core warrior had been cut in half by Jiang Chen.
The other man sensed the danger, so he dared not hesitate. He immediately flew high up into the skies, away from the danger.
“Wish to run? Stay behind!”
Jiang Chen raised the Soaring Heavens Sword and unleashed a ray of light which collided right into the man who just flew away. Blood exploded from the man’s body, and he was instantly killed.
“It’s your turn now.”
Jiang Chen didn’t stop, he immediately slashed his sword toward Liu Kui. The speed of his movement was extremely fast, and people could only see a blurry movement before the sword approached Liu Kui’s face.
Li Kui let out a loud shout as he raised his broadsword, blocking the attack.
Two combat weapons collided and produced a huge amount of sparks. Liu Kui was knocked back by Jiang Chen’s attack nearly 100 meters before he was able to regain control of his body. He was a Mid Divine Core warrior after all, he still had the abilities to fight Jiang Chen, even if it was just for a short amount of time.
“Everyone in this place will be killed today. Since you’ve harmed my friend, you will have to bear the consequences.
Jiang Chen’s stern gazed locked onto Liu Kui. If he hadn’t bumped into Tian Yishan today, he wouldn’t have known about Guan Yiyun’s whereabouts, and if he came here any later, he might have just found Guan Yiyun’s dead body.
“Hmph! Who is the one shamelessly boasting? You’re simply seeking death by killing the men in my stronghold!”
Right at this moment, a loud shout sounded out from afar. A figure suddenly rushed out from the inner area of the stronghold and arrived next to Liu Kui. Then man had a handsome face, and he wore a long, blue gown. He looked about the same age as Tian Yishan.
But, the cruel and ferocious look in this man’s eyes told Jiang Chen that he was a brutal man.
Liu Kui looked at Yang Shuo as if he had just found his savior. An extremely joyful expression emerged on his face. Liu Kui had witnessed Yang Shuo’s strength before, and he knew that no matter how strong the young man in front of him was, there was no way he would be a match for Yang Shuo.
Yang Shuo turned around and looked at the dead bodies scattered across the place. Blood was still leaking out from some of the bodies. In an instant, fury filled his eyes.
“You did all this?”
Yang Shuo stared angrily at Jiang Chen.
