Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 218
The Dog Emperor
Chapter 218 – The Dog Emperor
Big Yellow had actually been approaching a breakthrough before this. After he had eaten a huge amount of natural essences, his body had been filled with enormous amounts of energies. Therefore, a true transformation was going on while he was sleeping.
The golden cocoon covering Big Yellow’s body was becoming bigger and bigger. For him, breaking through to the Divine Core realm was extremely important, because as long as he broke through to the Divine Core realm, one of his powerful innate abilities would awaken. An innate ability that would give him incredible attacking power.
Currently, Big Yellow’s only good ability was his treasure hunting ability. As far as combat went, his best quality there was his head. However, it would all change after breaking through to the Divine Core realm.
Within Jiang Chen’s room, energy ripples had filled up every single inch of the room. Jiang Chen circulated the Dragon Transformation skill to its maximum speed, and followed by the reduction of demon souls, devil's soul and crystal cores, his aura was becoming stronger and stronger, and new Dragon Marks were continuously forming in his Qi Sea.
Jiang Chen wasn’t constrained by time, because this time, he was prepared to spend three days to absorb all souls and crystal cores. He needed to completely stabilize his cultivation, and he wasn’t going to rush anything.
The entire stronghold became very quiet. Two alliances had come to show their friendliness, but they were sent away by Tian Yishan. Now, Jiang Chen was the actual commanders, so they would have to wait until Jiang Chen finished cultivating before they could come show their friendliness.
After the mighty battle between Jiang Chen and Yang Shuo, Jiang Chen’s name had gained quite a bit of reputation. Not a single person in the outer perimeter of Inferno City didn’t know his name. It wouldn’t take long before his name was heard by someone in the middle area of Inferno City.
After one day, Guan Yiyun and the others were able to come down from their beds. More than 40% of their sounds had recovered, and their cultivation bases had slowly returned to normal.
After two days, Guan Yiyun had almost fully recovered, and all the other men were brimming with energy as well.
“The Resurrection Pills concocted by chief Jiang really has a resurrection effect, this is simply amazing! In just two days, although we suffered severe injuries, we have already fully recovered from them!”
“Not only that, the experience of surviving such a situation has enlightened me, so with the help of the Resurrection Pill concocted by chief Jiang, I’ll be able to break through to the Divine Core realm! Currently, I am the only Heavenly Core warrior here, but I won’t be a burden for everyone any longer!”
“With chief Jiang’s support, we won’t have to worry about being bullied by anyone in Inferno City, there is no need for us to live our days in constant anxiety any longer!”
The gloomy and depressed emotions these men felt a few days ago was now gone, it had instead been replaced by excitement.
“Chief Jiang reaped big benefits after his fight with Yang Shuo, that’s why he’s in secluded cultivation right now. I’m sure he will become even stronger after he finishes his cultivation!”
Tian Yishan said with a smile. He had thrown himself down at Jiang Chen’s feet with admiration.
Right at this moment, a massive amount of energy ripples swept across the place like a tsunami. In an instant, then entire skies above the stronghold were covered by energy ripples.
“What an enormous amount of energies! It carries a pressure that can suffocate anyone!”
Guan Yiyun was shocked.
“The energy level is still increasing! This is a sign of someone breaking through to the Divine Core realm! I can also feel a sense of divinity in this aura! It isn’t Jiang Chen’s aura, its Big Yellow’s aura! He’s breaking through to the Divine Core realm!”
A shocked expression emerged on Tian Yishan’s face. He knew that Big Yellow had entered secluded cultivation two days ago, but he had never thought that Big Yellow would break through to the Divine Core realm in such a short amount of time.
When thinking about the method Big Yellow used to improve his cultivation level, Tian Yishan almost threw up a mouthful of blood. Breaking through to a new realm while sleeping, this was simply a slap in everyone’s faces.
Suddenly, a deep and subtle roar sounded out from Big Yellow’s room. The roar sounded like a dragon’s cry; it wasn’t really loud, but it was extremely penetrative.
Tian Yishan and all the other men’s minds trembled, and in an instant, they felt dizzy. Even their souls were trembling. They had nearly lost their minds because of the roar.
All of them looked at each other, they could see the shock in each other’s eyes. With just a roar alone, their souls had trembled; and this was only because of the ripples of the roar itself. If the roar had an actual target, the target’s soul might have been shattered by now.
“Frightening! Chief Tian, is this the dog you told us about? How could he be so powerful?!”
Some asked with a shocked expression.
“There really is a miraculous big yellow dog who follows junior disciple Jiang. This dog is not an ordinary dog, it’s a rare beast who possess unique innate abilities. Judging from that roar just now, I think Big Yellow’s innate ability just awakened.”
Guan Yiyun explained.
“I have witnessed a few sound wave skills, but I have never seen anything like what Big Yellow just unleashed. Although it wasn’t loud, it could actually shake our souls!”
Tian Yishan said after taking a deep breath. It wasn’t difficult to imagine how strong Big Yellow had become after breaking through to the Divine Core realm.
Big Yellow transformed into a golden trail of light and dashed out from the room. His body was glowing brightly, and it had become even more majestic than before. He was twice as big as before, and he looked really mighty.
“Kaka, master dog has finally broken through to the Divine Core realm! Little Chen, come out and face your death! Master dog wants revenge! Wait… the fellow is in secluded cultivation…”
Big Yellow was laughing out loudly, and was getting ready to fight Jiang Chen once again. Jiang Chen gave him two black circles around his eyes two days ago, and he hadn’t forgotten about it.
“But soon after, when Big Yellow sensed that Jiang Chen was in secluded cultivation, he immediately shut his mouth.
“Buddy is in secluded cultivation again, don’t tell me his cultivation level is going to increase again? If that’s the case, how is daddy going to find the opportunity to get revenge?”
Big Yellow said with a slight hint of depression.
“But, since master dog has broken through to the Divine Core realm, I must show my mightiness no matter what! Since buddy isn’t free at the moment, master dog will just find someone else!”
After saying that, Big Yellow started walking towards Tian Yishan and Guan Yiyun while wagging his tail.
Seeing Big Yellow approaching them, Tian Yishan and the other men took a few steps and welcomed him. No one dared neglect this dog’s existence.
“Big Yellow, it’s been quite some time since we last met.”
Guan Yiyun greeted him with a smile on his face.
“Guan Yiyun, not bad, you still remember this master dog. Looks like you’ve all almost fully recovered… let’s go, follow this master dog, we’re going to do something big!”
Big Yellow said with his head held up high.
“May I know what master dog is going to do?”
A man in his thirties asking in a flattering manner. His name was Wang Heng, the only Heavenly Core warrior here, aside from Jiang Chen. But soon, he would break through to the Divine Core realm. He was a smart man who could quickly adapt to any situation, and if it wasn’t for that, with his cultivation level, there would be no way for him to survive for such a long period of time in Inferno Hell. When he learned about the relationship between Jiang Chen and Big Yellow, and when he saw Big Yellow’s cultivation level, he immediately flattered Big Yellow.
The flatter was perfectly timed! Perhaps others wouldn’t accept it, but Big Yellow surely would!
“Kaka, not bad! Kid, what’s your name? The master dog will protect you from now on!”
Big Yellow was laughing out loudly. This was the first time somebody had addressed him as master dog; it instantly gave him a majestic feeling.
“My name is Wang Heng, I hope master dog can show my some guidance in the future!”
Wang Heng cupped his fist toward Big Yellow.
“Damn it, Wang Heng, that’s enough!”
A strong man gave Wang Heng a forceful kick on his butt, and everyone burst out into laughter. One could easily tell from this how close these men were.
Obviously, all of them were used to Wang Heng’s behavior, even Tian Yishan and Guan Yiyun were laughing. This guy was really good at flattering, and he had actually brought them a lot of joy. Besides, all of them knew Wang Heng really well; although he looked like a sly fellow, he was actually a man who cherished friendship.
“Big Yellow, just now, you said you wanted to do something big… What do you want to do?”
Guan Yiyun asked.
“All of you followed me, we’re going to attack every single stronghold; we are going to take control of the entire outer perimeter! I want everyone to surrender to the master dog!”
Bright beams shot out from Big Yellow’s eyes.
What? Rule the entire outer perimeter? Was this a joke? Since the establishment of Inferno City, not a single alliance had managed to rule the entire outer perimeter. Everyone had their own territories, and even someone with wild ambitions like Yang Shuo was unable to rule the entire outer perimeter.
“Big Yellow… this… shouldn’t we wait for chief Jiang to finish his cultivation?”
Tian Yishan asked.
“Nonsense, master dog has made up his mind! All of you just lead the way, lead me to every single stronghold! Master dog wants to see who dares disobey his commands, I’ll kill him!”
Big Yellow had just broken through to the Divine Core realm, that’s why he was so confident and couldn’t wait to show off his mightiness. This was the best time for him to be in the limelight. If he waited until Jiang Chen finished his cultivation, Jiang Chen would end up being the one in the limelight instead of Big Yellow.
“Chief Tian, I agree with Big Yellow’s words. No one has ever ruled the entire outer perimeter, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do it! Chief Jiang even killed Yang Shuo, so no one in the outer perimeter will object his commands! We need to create this record!”
Yang Meng said.
“That’s right, we have to make chief Jiang the chief of the entire outer perimeter! In the future, we also need to make him the chief of the entire middle area as well! Let’s follow Big Yellow and conquer all the strongholds, then we’ll tell Jiang Chen about the surprise after he finishes his cultivation!”
Another man said. All these men had been living their days at the brim of death, that’s why they weren’t afraid of wreaking havoc.
Everyone reached an agreement. Under Big Yellow’s lead, they began walking towards one of the nearest strongholds.
Along the way, Wang Heng and another Early Divine Core warrior carried a big rattan chair. Big Yellow was comfortably sitting on the chair while rocking his head back and forth. He seemed to be enjoying himself, as if he was an emperor on an inspection tour.
People always used to say dog emperor, but this was a true dog emperor. 
Wang Heng was walking along happily, while the other Early Divine Core warrior had some black lines on his forehead. Damn it, he was after all a Divine Core warrior, but in the end, he had become a chair-bearer for a dog.
“Wang Heng, I love your idea, this truly portrays the elegant status of this master dog! You really deserve my praise!”
Big Yellow said in a dignified manner.
“As long as master dog feels comfortable!”
Wang Heng had a flattering expression, he didn’t care about the killing gaze thrown at him from the other Divine Core warrior.
“Kaka, the heavens are second in chief, the master dog is the master chief! Today, I’ll conquer all the strongholds! No one will dare disobey my commands!”
Big Yellow was laughing out heartily while bouncing around in the rattan chair.
Soon, the group arrived at the nearest stronghold. It was a stronghold which looked similar to Jiang Chen’s stronghold.
“There is a Mid Divine Core warrior residing in this stronghold, and the alliance is considered a pretty strong alliance amongst the outer perimeter.”
Tian Yishan explained.
“Perfect, let’s target them first! Let’s go!”
Big Yellow became extremely excited.
