Wu Jiu’s Identity
Chapter 244 – Wu Jiu’s Identity
All the spectators were breathing rapidly, they had never seen such a frightening killing method before. It could really be considered the supreme method of killing enemies.
Also, Jiang Chen’s approach had made them all understand a fact; the consequences of challenging him were devastating!
Over 20 Late Divine Core warriors, this was a massive force of combined combat strength, enough to sweep through the entire Inferno Hell. But now, there were only eight men left after having been slaughtered by Jiang Chen, and none of the surviving men were in good conditions, all of them were on the brink of death, with the exception of Shangguan Wei.
A sound similar to liquids flowing could be heard from the scene. Followed by a wave of Jiang Chen’s hand, the scene within the Great Illusion Realm changed once again. The surviving eight men were divided into four areas, each containing two men.
To no one surprise, just like what had happened previously, fierce fights immediately erupted between two men upon being put in the same area. Even those men who were on the brink of death fought like crazy.
In one of the areas, two men had impale their opponent’s chest with their sword at the same time. Once again, two dead bodies fell out from the Great Illusion Realm.
As for the rest of them, their situation wasn’t any better. Some of them were killed instantly, and those who weren’t killed… they weren’t far from death.
Bodies kept falling down from the sky, and Big Yellow just kept waiting underneath. If they man was dead, he would take all his belongings; if the man was alive, he would kill him with his fierce teeth, and then take all his belongings.
Jiang Chen started laughing. He flicked his wide sleeve and retracted the Great Illusion Realm. Within the illusion realm, Shangguan Wei tripped on his feet and almost fell down from the sky, but he ended up stabilizing his body. Then, he raised his head and stared at Jiang Chen.
Shangguan Wei’s expression changed, it seemed like he had just recalled what happened just now. He turned his head down, and he immediately saw all the dead bodies covered with blood. There were no men around him, he was the last one, and he was in bad shape.
“Jiang Chen, you…. How despicable you are!”
Shangguan Wei pointed his finger at Jiang Chen. Finally, he realized what had happened. All of them had been trapped in Jiang Chen’s illusion realm, and had been tricked into killing each other. Obviously, all the other men had been trapped, just like him, and started killing each other.
“Despicable? You think that’s despicable?”
Jiang Chen faintly smiled.
“What a despicable method, it was too vicious!”
Shangguan Wei’s heart was beating like drums, and he was extremely furious. Never once before had he seen such a cruel approach. Although there were so many strong warriors, all of them had fallen into Jiang Chen’s trap.
“Despicable! All of you were killing each other, what does this have to do with me? Shangguan Wei, don’t tell me you aren’t vicious? I’m sure you know much better than I do how many people you’ve killed.”
Jiang Chen glared at Shangguan Wei. He knew that Shangguan Wei was on the brink of collapsing.
“You… That’s all because of your illusion realm! If not for that, I would have killed my own friends! They’re all dead because of you!”
Shangguan Wei shouted out loudly.
“The illusion realm can reveal a person’s true nature. If you really considered them your friend, then you wouldn’t have attacked them in the first place. It was a desire hidden within the depths of your heart. None of you really considered each other as friends. In your heart, all humans and monsters in Inferno Hell are your prey! You’re all greedy, you were all wicked by nature, and I just provided you an environment and an opportunity. You are the vicious killer that killed your own friends, not I.”
Jiang Chen said, word by word. Each word was like a sharp blade poking at Shangguan Wei’s heart.
“He’s right, all humans are selfish by nature. In this Inferno Hell, no one will consider each other true friends, especially those Late Divine Core warriors. They are to prideful when it comes to their own profound cultivations, and they consider all humans their prey. This is human nature.”
“Jiang Chen used a method to bring out the desires hidden in the depths of their own hearts, killing them with their own deepest desires. This method of killing is truly cruel and frightening.”
“I have finally witnessed the supreme killing realm today!”
Who could have thought that a massive battle could have ended like this? Shangguan Wei’s destiny was easily predicted; even though he was from the Shangguan Clan, but with Jiang Chen’s character, he wouldn’t let Shangguan Wei go easily.
In mid-air, Jiang Chen place one hand behind his back, then he walked step by step toward Shangguan Wei. With each step he took, Shangguan Wei would take a step back. This young man in front of him had allowed him to feel true terror.
“Jiang Chen, you’ve killed so many people, and robbed so much wealth, just stop it right there. I’m from the Shangguan Clan, you can’t kill me.”
Shangguan Wei had no choice but to bet on his background, he wanted to make Jiang Chen feel afraid, and then let him go.
Jiang Chen still smiled faintly. He didn’t slow down, he just kept walking firmly toward Shangguan Wei, as if he was an emperor going to sentence a criminal.
“Do you guys think Jiang Chen will really kill Shangguan Wei? He is an elder from the Shangguan Clan, and the family is a massive power in the Jian Province, an existence that even the Martial Saint Dynasty has to take seriously. I know they have quite a number of Combat Soul warriors.”
“Although this Shangguan Wei isn’t someone important in the Shangguan Clan, but if he is killed by some outsider, I’m sure the Shangguan Clan will be provoked. This had something to do with their dignity, and they won’t allow any outsider to challenge it. My guess is, Jiang Chen won’t kill him.”
“It’s hard to tell, Jiang Chen has already killed so many men, and all of them were from different powers in the Eastern Continent. It could be said that he has provoked countless powers, both big and small. This man is extremely brutal and ruthless, he never shows his enemies any mercy. And don’t forget, he also killed Yang Shuo from the Myriad Sword Sect.”
Everyone viewed the scene with anticipation, they really wanted to know whether or not Jiang Chen would kill Shangguan Wei. Since Shangguan Wei wasn’t an outsider, killing him was equal to challenging the dignity of the Shangguan Clan. If he was killed by an outsider, the family would definitely find out how and why he died.
Jiang Chen showed all the spectators his decision with his action. He waved his hand and unleashed the True Dragon Palm, and in an instant, the blood red dragon claw completely covered Shangguan Wei.
Although Shangguan Wei was a peak Divine Core warrior, since he was seriously injured, there was no way he could resist Jiang Chen’s attack. He was trapped by the True Dragon Palm, and he couldn’t move at all.
“Jiang Chen, you really want to kill me?”
Shangguan Wei could feel the cold killing intent, and he immediately let out a loud scream.
“You were determined to kill me and take over all my wealth, that’s why I can’t let you go. It’s better for your family not to challenge me, because if they do, it will be the Shangguan Clan’s greatest misfortune. Now, die.”
Like an angel of death, Jiang Chen squeezed the dragon claw with a tremendous amount of force, causing bone cracking sounds to come from Shangguan Wei’s body, and blood to burst out from his mouth.
“Oh heavens! He really is going to kill Shangguan Wei!”
“Is he really not afraid of the Shangguan Clan taking revenge?”
Many people were instantly shocked. Jiang Chen was like a mighty demon lord, and there was nothing that could cause him to feel fear.
“Stop right there!”
Right at this moment, a loud shout sounded out from within Inferno City. After that, a ghostly figure suddenly appeared in the sky. It was a man who looked to be in his forties, and he wore a bronze colored robe. From his expression, one could tell he was an overbearing man. He had a pair of bright eyes, like an eagle, causing anyone who looked into his eyes to feel fear from the bottom of their heart.
The middle-aged man had his gray hair tied up in a bun, and he moved in a ruthless manner. He was actually a Combat Soul warrior.
“He is the Combat Soul warrior in the center of Inferno City, I’ve always heard about him, and he is finally here.”
“So that’s him. I heard he has been staying in Inferno City for many years, but I have never seen him shown himself.”
The arrival of the Combat Soul warrior caused the situation to become even tenser. When the depressed Shangguan Wei saw the arrival of this Combat Soul warrior, he immediately shouted for help, “Senior, please save me!”
Jiang Chen’s face darkened. The once thing he didn’t wish for to happen after returning to Inferno City was developing an offensive relationship with this Combat Soul warrior. Because, in order to hunt for the treasure in the center of Inferno City, he needed to maintain a good relationship with this man.
But Jiang Chen really hates it when someone tries to threaten him, and this Shangguan Wei was someone he must kill.
“I asked you to stop, can’t you hear me?”
The middle-aged man sounded angry. He had unleashed his aura, and he was getting ready to pressure Jiang Chen.
Right at this moment, a deep voice sounded out from the scene. Hearing someone calling his name, the middle-aged man had a change in expression, and he immediately turned toward the source. When he saw Wu Jiu, his mouth opened widely with shock, and in the next second, an extreme joyful expression emerged on his face.
The middle-aged man moved and arrived in front of Wu Jiu in an instant. He didn’t even care about Shangguan Wei and Jiang Chen anymore.
“Jiu… Lord Jiu!”
When Xuan Ye shouted out the first word, he saw Wu Jiu signaling him with his eyes. He immediately changed the way he was going to address Wu Jiu.
“Xuan Ye, I never thought I’d see you here.”
Wu Jiu said with a smile, he too felt happy when seeing the middle aged man. This was his most loyal servant, and it had been ten years since they last saw each other. Of course he would feel joyful when seeing a familiar man.
“Lord Jiu, it has been ten years! Finally, I’ve found you! Xuan Ye came to Inferno Hell seven years ago, and I’ve traveled all over the place, but I just couldn’t find any traces of Lord Jiu!”
Xuan Ye bowed deeply toward Wu Jiu. His eyes turned red, and he was almost in tears. It had been seven years, and the main reason why he came to Inferno Hell was to find Wu Jiu. Just as he had almost given up, he had finally found Wu Jiu.
“Oh heavens, who is that old man? Even a Combat Soul warrior has to bow to him!”
“Where did he come from? I think he’s with Jiang Chen… Now, no one can save Shangguan Wei anymore.”
Everyone were shocked. They were all trying to guess who this Wu Jiu was, and why a Combat Soul warriors was bowing to him.
Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan’s mouths were wide open with shock, and their faces carried expressions of disbelief. It looked like Wu Jiu letting them address him as Lord Jiu was actually a great honor, as even a Combat Soul warrior had to address him as Lord Jiu, let alone other people.
Jiang Chen felt relaxed now. He had long ago guessed that Wu Jiu came from an extraordinary background, but now it seemed more incredible than what he had expected. It looks like his decision to save Wu Jiu was spot on. Without Wu Jiu, he wouldn’t be able to find the Earth Devil’s location, and he would have to fight this Combat Soul warrior.
Shangguan Wei had completely lost all hope. He thought his savior was here, and he could finally keep his life. But now, his savior had switched side and become his enemy.
