Chapter 359 – Stride Away
Peace had finally returned to Mount Tianyuan. The devastating shockwaves that caused the hearts of the people to race were all gone. The dark clouds covering the sky were slowly diminishing, and the geniuses who had survived these doomsday nearly had tears flowing down their faces. Initially, there were dozens of them, but now, there were less than ten survivors, and each of them were in a bad shape.
The way they looked at Shangguan Yiqing instantly became vicious, their faces were filled with resentment. If no for Jiang Chen finally breaking the Skynet Formation, only death would await them.
As for those warriors who were watching the battle from outside Mount Tianyuan, each one of them were filled with mixed emotions. The way they looked at Jiang Chen had completely changed, and although they didn’t know what exactly happened just now, no one doubted that Jiang Chen had destroyed the Skynet Formation, bringing peace pack to Mount Tianyuan, as well as severely injuring Shangguan Yiqing.
“This is amazing! That Jiang Chen is a monstrous man! He actually turned the tables from a situation where only certain death seemingly awaited him!”
“Finished! Shangguan Yiqing is dead meat now! His actions were like throwing a huge stone onto his own feet!”
“Serves him right! He is an extremely cruel and merciless man, it would be nice if he died! This bastard organized the Gathering of Skynet purely for his own benefits, so many people suffered because of him!”
Many people felt really angry at Shangguan Yiqing. No matter what, what he had done was not favorable for them. For his own benefits, he had actually schemed against everyone who came here to help.
Above the ruined Mount Tianyuan, in the sky, Shangguan Yiqing was trying hard to stabilize his trembling body. He just stared at Jiang Chen with his pair of red eyes. He couldn’t believe what had just happened.
“Impossible! This is absolutely impossible! How could you destroy my formation?!”
Shangguan Yiqing’s face was filled with shock. He wasn’t able to take this reality, as he knew how advanced the formation he set up was. Even an ordinary master of formations wouldn’t be able to find out how to break it, but now, it had just been destroyed by Jiang Chen, and in such an easy way!
“Hahaha… Shangguan Yiqing, this is too funny!”
When Xuan Yuzi who had reached the end of his flight saw what happened, he immediately burst into laughter, as if he had gotten rid of a heavy rock that had been pressing against his chest. He would be able to die in piece now.
“Shangguan Yiqing, you are an arrow at the end of your flight now, do you still have any other tricks?”
Jiang Chen said in an indifferent tone. The backlash Shangguan Yiqing had suffered was deadly, and it had caused him to lose all his ability to fight. Xuan Yuzi was in a similar situation, so it was a piece of cake for Jiang Chen to kill them both.
“Jiang Chen, if you let me go today, I can submit a request to the Clan Chief! From today onwards, the resentment between the Shangguan Clan and you will be cancelled once and for all, what do you think? You should know the Shangguan Clan’s strength very well, you are on our must kill list. If you kill me today, the Shangguan Clan will definitely crush you to ashes!”
Shangguan Yiqing said with a smile. In his mind, what he proposed was a really tempting solution, and there was no reason for Jiang Chen to reject it.
“Is that so? I’m so afraid!”
Jiang Chen shook his head.
“It is alright for you to be afraid, no one can remain calm when facing the Shangguan Clan’s desire for revenge!”
Shangguan Yiqing said with a prideful expression.
“I really don’t know how you’re still able to portray such a superior attitude.”
Jiang Chen’s tone suddenly changed. In a ghostly manner, he instantly appeared right in front of Shangguan Yiqing. He thrust the longsword in his hand forward, penetrating Shangguan Yiqing’s body. He didn’t want to waste any more time.
Shangguan Yiqing was appalled. As he felt his life force constantly slipping away, only now did he realize how cold it was when death truly struck, how frightening it was to face death. At this last moment of his life, Shangguan Yiqing finally understood what kind of person Jiang Chen was; he was a man who would never give his enemy any chance to survive!
“I don’t need to blink my eyes to kill someone like you. Don’t worry, I will return the Shangguan Clan’s generous order to kill, you can just wait for all your family members down there, they will soon be united with you.”
Jiang Chen slowly pulled his sword out. When the tip of the longsword left Shangguan Yiqing’s body, his eyes were completely shut. After that, his dead body fell down from the sky.
After killing Shangguan Yiqing, Jiang Chen turned around and looked at Xuan Yuzi who was covered in blood.
“I know you won’t let me go. Don’t worry, I won’t beg you to spare me like that Shangguan Yiqing did.”
Xuan Yuzi had a bitter smile on his face. He now understood Jiang Chen’s character, and as this guy’s enemy, his destiny had long ago been determined. In fact, if it wasn’t for Jiang Chen, he would have been killed by Shangguan Yiqing just now. It was Jiang Chen who allowed him to survive for a longer period of time, giving him the chance to witness the death of Shangguan Yiqing. For him, this was the greatest relief.
“Xuan Yuzi, you are a failure. Working together with your own enemy is a decision that proves you’re a dumbass. However, you are a man with great courage at the same time. No matter what, I still have to kill you, because you are the one who first wanted to kill me.”
Jiang Chen said with an indifferent tone.
“Do it! This is my destiny! If you were the one defeated by me, I would also kill you.”
Xuan Yuzi closed his eyes, waiting for Jiang Chen’s sword to cut through his throat. He didn’t want to see his own head flying off his body.
Jiang Chen took a step forward, placed is palm on top of Xuan Yuzi’s head, and injected a force into his sea of consciousness, instantly destroying it.
Xuan Yuzi made a dull ‘hum’ sound, then, his life force completely vanished, and his dead body fell down from the sky as well. However, Jiang Chen had unleashed a gentle force that carried his dead body, causing it to fall down slowly.
“I’ll leave your body intact.”
After saying that, Jiang Chen simply shook his sleeve and strode away. A man not afraid of death would always deserve respect. Although Xuan Yuzi was his enemy, he had still won some respect from Jiang Chen. Therefore, Jiang Chen decided to leave him with a fully intact body. As for Xuan Yuzi’s arm, that was done by Shangguan Yiqing.
Looking at Jiang Chen’s back that was disappearing into the far distance, the people in the crowd couldn’t help but have mixed emotions. This man came all alone, and in the end, he strode away with his head held up high. He had become the winner of this Gathering of Skynet; both number one geniuses of the Jian Province had fallen.
With his own method, Jiang Chen had proved to everyone that he was the real number one genius in the younger generation.
When those surviving geniuses realized that Jiang Chen had just spared their lives, each of them started wiping off the cold sweat on their foreheads. Their faces filled with joy. It was such a narrow escape, and after experiencing today’s events, they now fully understood a fact, and they kept warning themselves inwardly; from today onwards, no matter what kind of situation they face, they would NEVER be Jiang Chen’s enemy! It was simply too terrifying!
Not long after Jiang Chen left, a man descended from the sky and arrived at Mount Tianyuan. He was an old imposing man. When he saw the miserable scene below him, his expression instantly changed.
Soon after, the old man found Shangguan Yiqing’s dead body, then he cried out loudly, “Yiqing!”
This old man was Shangguan Ying, Shangguan Yiqing’s grandfather, as well as a respectable Elder of the Shangguan Clan! He had incredible cultivation at the Late Combat Soul realm. Although he had broken through to this realm not long ago, it was still a deadly force. With this cultivation level, he could run around in the Eastern Continent without facing any problems.
Many people knew about this Gathering of Skynet, including Shangguan Ying. However, he didn’t pay too much attention to it, because his thoughts were similar to those of most of the people; Jiang Chen would never show himself! Since both superpowers had given out order to kill, Jiang Chen should be running around looking for some place to hide, and he would never risk his life to show up here.
Therefore, none of the Shangguan Clan leaders paid too much attention to this Gathering of Skynet. However, because Shangguan Ying had sensed the devastating energies coming from Mount Tianyuan, he came here to find out what was going on. But, he had never thought he would have to face this miserable scene.
“Where is that Jiang Chen?!”
Shangguan Ying simply pulled a warrior over and shouted at him.
“Ran… he ran away!”
The warrior was trembling out of fear. The fury of a Late Combat Soul warrior was not something that anyone could resist.
“Which direction did he go? How long ago did he leave?”
Shangguan Ying’s eyes had turned red, he was extremely furious right now! Shangguan Yiqing was the Shangguan Clan’s number one genius, as well as his own grandson! He treated him like the most precious person in his life, and in fact, Shangguan Yiqing was Shangguan Ying’s biggest pride, it was he who made it so that Shangguan Ying could hold his head high in front of all the other elders in the family.
Furthermore, Shangguan Yiqing was a talented man, and his mastery over formation was really good. In fact, he had exceeded most of the ones from the senior generations, and it was hard to find a match for him in the entire Eastern Continent. If nothing went wrong, he would have the highest chance of becoming a Combat King warrior in the future! But now, he had been killed in this desolate mountain range. This caused Shangguan Ying’s heart to ache.
To be honest, the loss of Shangguan Yiqing was much greater than the loss of all those geniuses on the Island of Ice.
“He went that way, it has been some time!”
The warrior pointed his finger in the direction where Jiang Chen left.
“Damn it, I’m going to rip you apart, I’ll won’t let you leave the Jian Province alive today!”
Shangguan Ying behaved like a furious lion. He carefully picked up Shangguan Yiqing’s dead body and placed it in his storage ring. After that, he disappeared into the far distance, chasing forward in the direction Jiang Chen had left.
“Fuck you, what’s there to be so arrogant about!? Daddy hopes all your family gets killed by Jiang Chen, puh!”
After wiping the cold sweat off his forehead, the warrior started cursing at Shangguan Ying. He was nearly frightened to death just now, and if Shangguan Ying released his anger over losing his grandson on this warrior, being killed by a single slap is not a fun way to die.
After restlessly searching for Jiang Chen for over two hours, Shangguan Ying hadn’t been able to find a single trace of him. After that, he informed the Shangguan Clan with a talisman, requesting more people to help search for Jiang Chen.
In just two hours, what happened on Mount Tianyuan spread throughout the entire Jian Province. Just like Shangguan Yiqing, the death of Xuan Yuzi was a huge blow to the Myriad Sword Sect; their biggest hope had fallen, it was a loss that could never be redeemed.
Therefore, the entire Jian Province became heated. Jiang Chen did show up to the Gathering of Skynet, and his courage was really worthy of admiration. In such a situation, he still dared come to the Jian Province and ruthlessly strike and kill both top geniuses of the Jian Province. People not only admired his courage, but were also terrified by his formidable strength.
