A Genius’s Charm
Chapter 355 – A Genius’s Charm
At this moment, the young man finally sensed the aura of death. Fear emerged from the bottom of his heart, and during this last moment of his life, the only thought in this young man was regret. He was truly regretting his desire to participate in this Gathering of Skynet, and was even regretting being the first one to come out and say something.
Too bad, it was useless to regret! There were a lot of different medicines in this world, even immortal pills and miraculous medicines. However, there were no medicine that could heal someone’s regret.
Jiang Chen squeezed his palm, crushing the young man’s throat in an instant. The gap between them was simply too big. For Jiang Chen, killing him was no different from killing an ant.
With both eyes wide open, the young man slowly fell down to the ground. Jiang Chen pulled his arm back, not taking a second look at this young man.
Jiang Chen’s actions instantly brought the crowd to a turmoil. Those Divine Core warriors who stood closest to Jiang Chen were greatly terrified, and they couldn’t help but start backing off. Facing this young man who behaved like a demon caused them to completely lose all their arrogance and confidence. Even with Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi standing behind them, they still didn’t feel safe.
Especially those few men who had gone to the Island of Ice and had witnessed Jiang Chen’s fierce approaches. Their fear was much stronger compared to the other people around them. Just standing opposite of Jiang Chen caused them to feel a tremendous pressure.
“Jiang Chen, even in such a situation you still dare kill? Your courage is indeed extremely great!”
Xuan Yuzi raised the longsword in his hand high up, and pointed it at Jiang Chen who stood opposite of him. His energy started rising bit by bit, and the longsword in his hand was emitting layers of cold lights, causing those who looked at him to feel a shiver running down their spines.
“You two mighty still be worthy opponents, but I just don’t understand, why did you call these people here, is it because you want them dead? I think, you just want to satisfy your desire of being someone above all else. You called them here to show that you two have some influence, and with that, you can show off your superiority. Am I right?”
Jiang Chen knew what Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi were up to at the back. It was completely useless for them to organize this Gathering of Skynet. If they really wanted to kill him, they could just challenge him directly, they didn’t have to call upon so many warriors. Jiang Chen believed that both of them knew this very well, because none of these warriors would be able to provide them with any help.
“Jiang Chen, those who come here are my friends! I, Shangguan Yiqing will never allow you to kill them!”
Shangguan Yiqing shouted out loudly. His words made him seem like someone loyal to his friends, causing those in the crowd to feel better, actually.
“Haha, if I was any of you, I would leave this place as soon as possible, without getting my feet wet in this matter. Now, I’ll give you all of you a chance. Those who leave; I won’t kill. Those who stay; perish together with Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi.”
Jiang Chen burst into laughter as his eyes swept across the crowd. He was giving these guys a chance to survive.
His words brought the crowd to a turmoil once again, especially those who had been to the Island of Ice. They knew very well how terrifying Jiang Chen could be. If they didn’t leave, it was highly possible they would be killed by him. To be frank, the majority of the people came here because they thought Jiang Chen wouldn’t show up. With that, not only would they not have to face Jiang Chen, they would also be able to befriend Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi.
But who could have predicted this? Jiang Chen did show up! And not only that, it took him almost no time! However, if they left right now, the consequences would be devastating. Once they offended Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi, there would be no room for them to live in the Jian Province any longer.
Now, they could only hope that the Skynet Formation set up by Shangguan Yiqing could really kill Jiang Chen.
“Cut the bullshit, since you’re here, you won’t have the chance to leave this place any longer. Everyone, listen to me, proceed to your respective positions in the Skynet Formation, we need to completely lock down this area and give Jiang Chen no chance to escape!”
Shangguan Yiqing suddenly shouted out loudly.
The crowd immediately replied, and each person started flying in different directions, positioning themselves in different spots. The relaxed drinking session had suddenly turned into a fierce battlefield.
“Skynet Formation, interesting. Let me see how powerful this formation is.”
A sneer emerged onto Jiang Chen’s face. After that, he unleashed his energy, causing powerful energy waves to spread out in all directions like the ocean’s waves. His fighting intent was incredibly powerful, and his mighty energy shocked Shangguan Yiqing and Xuan Yuzi. It was really difficult to imagine how a Late Divine Core warrior could unleash such explosive energy.
Shangguan Yiqing waved his arm and took out a golden talisman. After that, he simply threw it into the sky. He then injected it with a force, causing it to explode and turn into thousands of tiny bits of golden sparks and disappear.
At the same time, a faded light barrier suddenly appeared and covered 6 kilometers of circumference. Those warriors who were positioned on different spots had completely locked this place down.
“Looks like they did have some use. But, too bad, this formation is really bad, I can destroy it with just a single strike.”
Jiang Chen threw a casual look at the formation. Although its name was the Skynet Formation, in Jiang Chen’s eyes, there were leaks everywhere. He had dozens of methods he could use to break it. Shangguan Yiqing did have some talent in the field of formations, rarely anyone from the younger generations could be compared with him. But, since his opponent was Jiang Chen, who was once the greatest Saint underneath the Heavens, the gap between them was not small.
“Really? Show me what makes you so arrogant then!”
After saying that, Xuan Yuzi swung the longsword in his hand and unleashed a dazzling sword energy at Jiang Chen. It was such a powerful strike that it sliced through the void wherever it passed. All the geniuses from the Myriad Sword Sect were experts with the sword, there were few capable of defending against their attacks.
Jiang Chen just stood at the same spot without moving a bit. When the sword energy neared him, he forcefully pointed out with his finger, unleashing a huge golden finger which collided with the sword energy.
Devastating energy ripples swept across the area, shattering all the stone tables into pieces.
“His combat strength is about the same as Wu Cong’s.”
Jiang Chen was immediately able to determine the actual combat strength of Xuan Yuzi, it was not much different from Wu Cong’s. Therefore, Jiang Chen had no fear when fighting him face to face. If he truly took out the Heavenly Saint Sword, he was very confident he would be able to kill Xuan Yuzi.
“Slash of Dawn, first style!”
Xuan Yuzi strong once again. The longsword in his hand transformed into a long dragon, and it shone like a sword beam. With the energy of the dawn, it arrived in front of Jiang Chen in the blink of an eye.
“Nice sword technique, but only that. Let’s be quick, I don’t have time to play with you.”
With a wave of his arm, the Heavenly Saint Sword instantly appeared in Jiang Chen’s hand and let out a sharp cry. Jiang Chen obviously wanted to finish this battle as soon as possible. His sudden appearance at Mount Tianyuan had gone beyond everyone’s expectation. If he spent too much time here, some senior warriors from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect might show up, and that was not something he wanted to see.
The Heavenly Saint Sword was shaking and producing a buzzing sound. It drew a curve in the air and collided with Xuan Yuzi’s attack, instantly destroying it.
After that, Jiang Chen let out a loud shout and raised the Heavenly Saint Sword high up into the air, then he forcefully swung it at Xuan Yuzi. It was an attack without any complicated techniques, but it was extremely fast and fierce.
“Slash of Dawn, second style!”
Xuan Yuzi immediately unleashed a counterattack. As the Myriad Sword Sect’s number one genius, his mastery over the sword was naturally very proficient.
The air was shaking, and a rainbow-colored sword energy flew across the sky. Xuan Yuzi unleashed a gigantic swordnet that spun like a tornado.
But, Jiang Chen’s sword strike was extremely heavy. It slashed down from above and even created a small crack in the void as it forcefully collided with the gigantic swordnet.
The collision produced a deafening explosive sound, and more than half of the mountain peaks in the mountain range were destroyed. The invincible sword energy completely destroyed Xuan Yuzi’s swordnet, but the energy contained within Jiang Chen’s strike was far from depleted, it was still rolling forward like a fierce tsunami.
Tap tap tap…
Pushed by this massive force, Xuan Yuzi was knocked back a few dozen steps before he could stabilize his body. Because of this backlash, his face had become extremely pale, and his Qi and Blood was in a bad state.
“How can this be possible?”
Xuan Yuzi was greatly frightened; he was defeated by a Divine Core young man, even with his formidable combat strength! This was like a nightmare for him! But soon after, he threw his glance onto the longsword in Jiang Chen’s hand. Besides the terrified expression, a look of greed could be found.
“It’s such a mighty weapon! Without that sword, Jiang Chen would be no match for me at all!”
Xuan Yuzi blamed his defeat on the longsword in Jiang Chen’s hand.
“This guy is just as strong as the rumors say. Xuan Yuzi, we need to attack him together!”
After witnessing how formidable Jiang Chen was, Shangguan Yiqing dared not underestimate him anymore. He leapt up into the sky and sat down right in the middle of the air, then he took out a red zither and placed it on top of his lap.
This zither’s sound was extremely piercing, it sounded just like a sharp knife capable of penetrating anything. It was Shangguan Yiqing’s combat weapon!
Shangguan Yiqing placed his palm on top of the strings and started striking them. In an instant, a beautiful melody resounded throughout the mountain range. It was melodious and pleasant to hear.
“I will play the zither and laugh at the Heavens!”
All of a sudden, the zither melody’s energy changed. Individual notes of the melody started shooting out from the strings, and they carried tremendous force, like countless deadly blades. Each and every single one of them were seemingly capable of slicing through anything!
Not only did this melody carry a deadly strength, the sound was even capable of attacking the enemy’s mind. It was a horrifying attack!
“Slash of Dawn, third style!”
On the other side, Xuan Yuzi struck once again. It was as if the longsword in his hand had become alive, he unleashed countless sword energies which formed into a dazzling sea of swords.
For the first time in history, the two number one geniuses from the Jian Province were working together! They were enemies of life or death who had fought each other many time, so they were actually able to form a perfect teamwork. The sound-waves and the sea of sword blanketed the place. Wherever they passed, mountains would crumble, and rocks would be sent flying all over the place.
“Hmph! There is nothing the Heavenly Saint Sword can’t destroy!”
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed. He simply threw the Heavenly Saint Sword in the sky, causing it to transform in a few huge swords in an instant. After that, these few huge sword exploded into thousands of swords, each of them looking exactly like the Heavenly Saint Sword. Looking at it from the outside, no one could really figure out which one was the real Heavenly Saint Sword.
