The Death of Shangguan Ying

Chapter 379 – The Death of Shangguan Ying
“Haha, Jiang Chen, your monster help is nothing! Aside from having mighty strength, it’s a useless thing! Now, I’ve killed it with my blade. Do you have any other tricks?”
Shangguan Ying burst into laughter. He was pleasantly satisfied. He felt that he had overestimated this Ice Demon. Initially, he believe it to have some powerful skills, but in the end, it was just a fool who didn’t know how to do anything other than attack. An existence like this would never pose any threat to him.
“Is that so? How do you know you’ve killed it? It’s standing behind you right now.”
Jiang Chen responded with a laugh.
“Haha, Jiang Chen, is there something wrong with your mind?”
Shangguan Ying continued laughing.
“If you don’t believe what I said, turn around and look for yourself.”
Jiang Chen pointed behind Shangguan Ying.
Shangguan Ying’s expression changed, and he couldn’t help but tremble. What made him shock wasn’t Jiang Chen’s words, but the cold sensation coming from his back. Without any hesitation, he instantly turned around, and what he saw was a huge fist coming toward his face.
Now, Shangguan Ying was completely baffled. In a split second, he countered with the Earth Shattering Palm, blocking the Ice Demon King’s attacks. But, since the attack came without his awareness, he was knocked back at least 30 meters before he could stabilize his body. Now, there was a storm raging in Shangguan Ying’s mind.
“Impossible, this is impossible! I just killed it, how can it still be standing right in front of me, unharmed?! And not only that, it’s still at full strength!”
Shangguan Ying just couldn’t accept this, as he had cut this monster in two just moments ago. It was a devastating attack that no one could recover from, that’s why he was completely baffled by what was in front of him.
Shangguan Ying was clearly in shock, but the Ice Demon King didn’t give him any time to thing. It simply stormed with violent attacks, continuing its brutal assault with absolutely no care for its own defense.
Once again, the Ice Demon King and Shangguan Ying fought intensely. After resurrecting, the Ice Demon King’s combat strength hadn’t weakened at all. It was still furiously attacking Shangguan Ying, because it knew its own advantage; it would never die. Therefore, it just didn’t bother defending itself.
But for Shangguan Ying, it was completely different. Struck by the fact that the Ice Demon King could resurrect, his mind was now greatly disturbed, causing his combat strength to weaken.
“What the fuck, this is also possible?!”
Han Yan rolled his eyes. He felt as if the world he knew had just been turned upside down.
“Little Chen, what’s going on? The Ice Demon King was killed just now, so why was it suddenly resurrected?”
Nangong Wentian stood next to Jiang Chen and asked eagerly. If he couldn’t get the answer to this question, he would be driven nuts.
“This is the Ice Demon King’s special ability. It actually has two amazing abilities; it can hide its demon soul in the thin air, and furthermore, once its body is destroyed, it can still come back to life near instantly with its hidden demon soul.”
Jiang Chen told them about the Ice Demon King’s terrifying abilities, but he didn’t mention anything about the Black Ice Talisman.
“Damn it, this ability is really amazing! If this is the case, Shangguan Ying is going to die today!”
Big Yellow was so excited that he started bouncing around. He had never heard about any ability similar to the Ice Demon King’s special ability, and if everything was as said, then this Ice Demon King was an existence that would never be killed. As Shangguan Ying fought with it, his energy would sooner or later be depleted, and in the end, he would definitely be defeated.
“Haha, this is incredible! That old man is going to be finished!”
Han Yan burst into laughter. Knowing this fact made him very excited, and Nangong Wentian also gave Jiang Chen a big thumbs up. He really admired Jiang Chen for being able to control this amazing monster.
“Once Shangguan Ying’s mind has been disturbed, I will need your help to seal up this place, don’t let him run away from us. Little Yu, you and Big Yellow, Brother Nan, and Brother Yan stand on that side, I’ll be on this side. We have to prevent this old man from running away, if not, the Ice Demon King’s secret will be exposed.”
Jiang Chen said.
Yan Chenyu nodded his head. She was the strongest person here besides Jiang Chen, and with this group’s teamwork, as well as the formidable Ice Demon King, trapping Shangguan Ying here was a piece of cake.
The intense battle was still ongoing, and both Shangguan Ying and the Ice Demon King were locked in a fierce battle where no one seemed to be able to defeat the other.
“Damn it, I refuse you believe you really are invincible!”
Shangguan Ying was really furious. This was the first time in his life he had to fight such a bizarre battle; it was simply unbelievable.
He once again drew out his blade, then he unleashed all his Yuan energy, causing it to shine brightly. With a tremendous force, he swung the blade toward the Ice Demon King.
Hit by this tremendous attack, the Ice Demon King was cut into two parts once again and died. However, before Shangguan Ying could feel happy about it, a new Ice Demon King emerged into his sight once again. Not only that, the new Ice Demon King was back at full strength. Then, it simply continued ferociously attacking Shangguan Ying.
Shangguan Ying cried out in shock once more, and his eyes had turned red. He felt like he was in a dream, the monster’s insane ability had gone beyond his knowledge. In his knowledge, even if a monster had the ability to resurrect, the monster would have to pay a heavy price for doing so. At least, its combat strength would be reduced by a lot. However, this Ice Demon in front of him was a completely different case. Every time it resurrected, it would be back at full strength, showing absolutely no signs of having weakened.
As for Shangguan Ying himself, after killing the Ice Demon King two times, he had used up a lot of his energy. That combined with his disturbed mind, it was really difficult to fight utilizing all his strength.
Han Yan shouted out loudly. This really was an eye opening moment for him, he never knew there was such an insane demon species in this world. With the ability of being unable to die, no matter how strong an enemy was, it would still give them a headache.
In fact, only Jiang Chen knew the truth. The Ice Demon King could be killed, but its ability to hide its demon soul made is incredible. With Shangguan Ying’s abilities, there was no way he could find out about the hidden demon soul. But, if a Combat King warrior was here, he might be able to find the Ice Demon King’s weak spoke, just like Jiang Chen had done when he killed those Ice Demons back in the world of glaciers. He needed to completely destroy their consciousness within their demon soul right after killing them. With that, the Ice Demon would be completely destroyed.
But too bad, Shangguan Ying didn’t possess the ability to destroy the Ice Demon King. It was destined for him to be killed by it.
The more Shangguan Ying fought, the more depressed he felt. In the end, he could only furiously cry out.
“Damn monster, I don’t believe you have three lives. Now die!”
Shangguan Ying’s eyes turned extremely red, and he didn’t care so much at this moment. With both hand clenching the blade’s handle tightly, he raised it high up into the air and swung it down with all his force, leaving a deep mark in the air as his golden blade fell downwards. It was a terrifying strike!
This was Shangguan Ying’s last strike at full strength, as his Qi and Blood was already in a mess. This attack was more than enough to kill the Ice Demon King who didn’t know how to defend itself. If it was still able to resurrect after that, Shangguan Ying’s combat strength would be reduced by half, and he wouldn’t be a match for the Ice Demon King anymore.
Without anything different happening, just like Shangguan Ying thought, his formidable attack once again killed the Ice Demon King. But, too bad, in the following moment, a new Ice Demon King appeared, and it was back in perfect shape.
Looking at this, Shangguan Ying simply threw up a mouthful of blood. The blood was actually forced out by his extreme fury. He couldn’t take it any longer, with his condition, he just couldn’t fight anymore.
The Ice Demon King once again delivered its gigantic fist toward Shangguan Ying. On the other side, Shangguan Ying who had nearly depleted his energy was no match for it any longer. As the Ice Demon King delivered its fist with speed fast as lightning, Shangguan Ying could only raise his arm to block the attack.
Hit by the Ice Demon King’s ferocious attack, one of Shangguan Ying’s arms exploded into a blood mist, causing him to instantly let out a miserable shriek.
“Damn it, I admit defeat!”
Shangguan Ying tried his best to endure the pain coming from his arm. Without saying anything, he simply turned around and flew. He was not an idiot, he knew that in the current situation, there was no way he could kill Jiang Chen, and if he kept fighting, he would be killed by this monster in the end. He was also feeling really upset about not knowing about Jiang Chen’s hidden tricks before coming here.
“Shangguan Ying, don’t you think it’s too late for you to run away?”
A young man in white stopped in front of Shangguan Ying.
“Jiang Chen, go to hell!”
Seeing Jiang Chen, Shangguan Ying simply swung his blade toward the wicked young man.
“Too bad, with your current strength, you are no match for me.”
Jiang Chen drew out the Heavenly Saint Sword and hit Shangguan Ying’s blade with it. The collision of the two combat weapons instantly produced a large amount of sparks, and Shangguan Ying’s arm started feeling numb. However, he was more shocked when he looked at his blade.
His combat weapon was a mighty Superior Weapon, but with just a single exchange with Jiang Chen’s longsword, he could actually see cracks on his weapon.
“What a divine sword!”
Shangguan Ying was extremely shocked. However, he didn’t have time to think about it, because the Ice Demon King had already caught up to him.
The Ice Demon King’s attack was simple, it simply delivered a punch to Shangguan Ying upon arriving. However, this was the simplest attack that Shangguan Ying couldn’t take at all. He immediately used all his strength to block the attack, but that made him neglect the attack coming from Jiang Chen.
The Heavenly Saint Sword mercilessly fell onto Shangguan Ying’s shoulder, instantly chopping off his other arm.
After losing both arms, Shangguan Ying simply let out a furious and unreconciled cry. He knew he was doomed today, he had lost his chance to escape, causing him to feel a lot of regret.
“True Dragon Palm!”
Jiang Chen shouted with a low voice as he unleashed a huge blood red dragon claw that turned into a giant cage, trapping Shangguan Ying within. Shangguan Ying was an arrow at the end of its flight, he simply had no strength to defend himself from Jiang Chen’s True Dragon Palm.
“I gave you a friendly reminder just now. If you had chosen to run away at the beginning, you might still have a chance to live, but now? You’re dead meat.”
Jiang Chen spoke with a smile on his face, showing no courteousness.
