Returning to the Devil Cave
Chapter 248 – Returning to the Devil Cave
Duan Jianhong met with Nanbei Chao and Zhao Chongyang and expressed the Heavenly Sword Sect’s willingness to surrender, then promised to obey all of the Burning Sky Pavilion’s orders without hesitation. After that, he returned to the Heavenly Sword Sect with all the Sect Elders.
“Did you see that? Even the Heavenly Sword Sect surrendered to use! From now on, the Qi Province will belong to the Burning Sky Pavilion.”
“That Duan Jianhong is a coward, he just surrendered without even fighting back. What an unexpected decision. I thought there would be a tough fight between us.”
“This tells us that Duan Jianhong is a man who knows which way the wind blows; he knew there wouldn’t be any good outcome if he were to fight senior disciple Nanbei. Therefore, surrendering to us is their best option.”
All the disciples from the Burning Sky Pavilion were discussing the recent events, and prideful expressions could be seen on their faces. Even a big sect like the Heavenly Sword Sect had come forth and surrendered. This made them all prideful for being disciples of the Burning Sky Pavilion.
Within the inner area of the Burning Sky Pavilion, Nanbei Chao and Zhao Chongyang were sitting opposite of each other.
“I really didn’t think that Duan Jianhong would actually surrender to us.”
Zhao Chongyang still couldn’t believe what had happened.
“Hmph! Duan Jianhong is man full of schemes, you think he was sincere in surrendering? He just wants to preserve the Heavenly Sword Sect’s strength; he wants to see how we’re going to deal with the Black Sect and the Valley of Happiness. When all of us are weakened form the fighting, he will swoop in and try to destroy us all.”
Nanbei Chao let out a cold snort. Although Duan Jianhong was a wise man, he couldn’t hide his brilliant plan from Nanbei Chao.
“If that’s the case, we should just kill them directly. Let’s destroy the Heavenly Sword Sect first.”
Zhao Chongyang said with an angry expression.
“We don’t have to. After all, they have surrendered to us, so I won’t attack them. I want to let this Duan Jianhong witness my real strength, let him know how stupid his strategy is. Besides, since the Heavenly Sword Sect has surrendered to us, I won’t let them just sit back and relax, I’ll give them some tasks. Send my order to the Black Sect and the Valley of Happiness, I want them to surrender to me in seven days.”
Nanbei Chao said.
“With Daoist Black and Granny Feng’s character, they won’t surrender.”
Zhao Chongyang shook his head.
“I know. If they don’t surrender, I’ll just destroy them.”
Nanbei Chao said with ultimate arrogance.
“Since we’re going to strike anyways, why are we giving those guys seven days to consider? Why not just attack now? Seven days would give them enough time to prepare to fight back.”
Zhao Chongyang looked at Nanbei Chao, puzzled.
“I gave the Heavenly Sword Sect three days. So for the Black Sect and Valley of Happiness, I’ll give those guys seven days. I just want them to have the time to prepare. Even if both of them group together and fight back, I’ll still destroy them no matter what. For me, slaughtering the Black Sect, Valley of Happiness, or any other sect alone is not challenging at all. Why not just let them group together?”
Nanbei Chao said with a grin on his face. He was a man with the mightiest pride, he thought nothing of them at all. In his mind, the other three big sects in the Qi Province were just some stepping stones for him to become the overlord of this land.
At the same time, within the palace located in the center of Inferno City.
After three days of resting, Xuan Ye had recovered to his peak form. Even more exciting, with the help from all sorts of natural essences, Wu Jiu recovered to the peak Divine Core realm. Although it was only the Divine Core realm, since he had a strong foundation of being a peak Combat Soul warrior, together with some extraordinary skills that he knew; he could actually fight a Combat Soul warrior such as Xuan Ye with only his peak Divine Core cultivation.
Jiang Chen was surprised by another good news as well; in the past three days, Big Yellow had broken through to the Mid Divine Core realm. Together with Jiang Chen, this group of men could sweep across the entire Inferno Hell without much resistance.
In addition, after Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan had completely healed their injuries, both of them had broken through to the Mid Divine Core realm as well, and they were much stronger compared to before.
“Brother, with my current condition, I can finally help you with your mission.”
Wu Jiu’s eyes were glowing; portraying a brimming energy.
“Kaka, this master dog has broken through to another level, who dares challenge me now?!”
Big Yellow laughed out heartily, incredibly excited.
“Perfect, let’s proceed to the devil cave now!”
Jiang Chen strengthened his spirit. Right now, there were only seven more days until the doorway to the outside world opened up, and he had to kill the Earth Devil as soon as possible. Since his group had such an incredible force, and he possessed the blood talisman; as long as they could find the Earth Devil, Jiang Chen was confident they would be able to defeat it.
“Junior disciple Jiang, what about us?”
Guan Yiyun asked.
“Senior disciple Guan, brother Tian, I don’t think you can provide much help with this. You guys just stay here and focus on healing your injuries, we will return once we’ve killed the Earth Devil. Then, we’ll leave Inferno Hell seven days later.”
Jiang Chen said as he patted Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan’s shoulders.
“Alright, if this is the case, be careful, junior disciple Jiang.”
Guan Yiyun said with some concern. He and Tian Yishan didn’t have any dissatisfaction with Jiang Chen’s decision; they understood that if they didn’t do as he said, with their cultivation, the outcome would be the same as previously. Not only would they not be able to provide any help, they would become burden for Jiang Chen.
After that, Jiang Chen, Wu Jiu, Xuan Ye and Big Yellow left Inferno City and started flying toward the depths of Inferno Hell.
“Brother Jiang, where is the devil cave located?”
Xuan Ye asked.
“We’ll follow the route I took last time and find two tall trees.”
Jiang Chen followed the route he took last time, and soon, they found two tall trees.
“There is an invisible natural formation between these two trees. Walk through them, then we’ll arrive at the devil cave.”
Jiang Chen explained. Without hesitation, the group walked straight through.
Chilly wind kept blowing by, and devilish energies filled the place. Jiang Chen and the group arrived at the same spot as last time. Jiang Chen and Big Yellow could remember this well, as this was where they had been ambushed by Evil Devils, and in the end, had attracted the Combat Soul Evil Devil that had chased them into the Poisonous Miasma Space.
“We will slaughter our way to the center of this devil cave where there is a devil palace, and a Combat Soul Evil Devil living there. We’ll have to make this place chaotic and kill it. At that point of time, I believe the Earth Devil will make its appearance.”
Jiang Chen said.
“The Combat Soul Evil Devil isn’t easy to deal with. Once we see it later one, brother Jiang, you can use the blood talisman straight away. We can use this opportunity to assess its power.”
Xuan Ye suggested.
“No, the blood talisman is for the Earth Devil. If I use it before that, the Earth Devil will be able to sense its aura, then it will be scared and go hide itself. If that happens, all our plans and strategies will go to waste. Therefore, we have to depend on ourselves in order to defeat the Combat Soul Evil Devil.”
Jiang Chen had given it thorough thought, he knew the importance of the blood talisman. It was hidden in Inferno City, and it was the reason why no monsters dared come close. If he used it now, the Earth Devil would surely sense it and be alerted, then it would be almost impossible for them to kill it.
“What brother Jiang said is correct. Before the Earth Devil appears, we can’t use the blood talisman; we have to depend on ourselves to defeat the Combat Soul Evil Devil.”
Wu Jiu nodded his head, he couldn’t agree more on what Jiang Chen said.
