Chapter 383 – None Believes
With the help of Wu Jiu’s dimensional talisman, Jiang Chen saved a lot of travel time when they left the Martial Saint Dynasty. However, they didn’t have it any longer, so with their speed, it would take them a few days before finally returning to the Martial Palace.
A few days later at the Martial Palace!
Wu Jiu was pacing back and forth restlessly while occasionally looking over in Mount Origin’s direction. He wanted to help Jiang Chen in Mount Origin, but since this mission was given by the Imperial Emperor, he couldn’t just break the rule and prove Jiang Chen any help. Furthermore, even if he did go there, he would still have no solution to that dimensional crack. All he could do was help them kill some Dimensional Creatures.”
“This is really making me worried.”
Wu Jiu shook his head and sighed.
Suddenly, Wu Jiu’s eyes lit up. He raised his head and threw his glance into the distance, and a split second later, a man suddenly appeared in front of him. The man looked about 17 years old, he was wearing white clothes, and his face carried a faint smile. He was none other than Jiang Chen.
“Brother, you’re finally back!”
Wu Jiu quickly walked up to Jiang Chen, then he impatiently asked, “How was it?”
“I finished the mission, and we’ve eliminated all the Dimensional Creatures. I spent a few days resting at home, that’s why we came back so late.”
Jiang Chen said as he shrugged his shoulders.
“What?! Finished? You’ve fixed the dimensional crack? How can this be possible? This is impossible!”
Wu Jiu’s expression changed. He thought Jiang Chen was joking, because only a Combat King warrior could deal with a dimensional crack. No matter how talented Jiang Chen was, he was only a Divine Core warrior. Even Wu Jiu couldn’t fix it, let alone Jiang Chen.
“I obviously don’t have the ability to fix it, so I used a formation to seal it up, preventing those Dimensional Creatures from coming into our world. I believe this should be considered enough to finish the mission, right?”
Jiang Chen replied with a smile.
“What?! You sealed the dimensional crack with a formation? That’s impossible, it’s even more difficult to seal a dimensional crack than fixing it! I know all kinds of formations, but none of them can do it, and with your cultivation, it’s just impossible!”
Wu Jiu was unable to believe what Jiang Chen said. In his mind, Jiang Chen was just joking with him. If it was real, it would really turn everything he thought he knew upside down.
“My home is on the other side of Mount Origin, how could I make fun of this matter? If brother Jiu doesn’t believe me, you can follow me to Mount Origin and see for yourself.”
Jiang Chen said.
Wu Jiu stared at Jiang Chen, his breath heavy. If anyone else had told him this, Wu Jiu would have just slapped him, sending him far away. However, since it came from Jiang Chen, Wu Jiu had more than a hundred reasons to believe him.
“Brother, can you tell me what formation you used to seal the crack?”
Wu Jiu asked.
“The Skymend Formation.”
Jiang Chen answered.
“The Skymend Formation? Never heard of that one before.”
Wu Jiu was startled for a moment, and the way he looked at Jiang Chen changed.
“Frankly speaking, Big Yellow has mastered the Heavenly Book of Source Formations, he knows all kinds of ancient formations. This Skymend Formation comes from Big Yellow, I just worked together with him and helped construct the formation.”
Jiang Chen explained, pushing the origin of the Skymend Formation onto Big Yellow.
“Brother, you’ve just created another miracle. Since you’ve completed the mission, let’s proceed to the Martial Saint Dynasty. Shangguan Sheng and Tiangang Yi are still waiting for you over there, it’s time for us to give them a shock!”
Wu Jiu was really excited.
Jiang Chen nodded his head.
Both men flew into the sky, and soon after disappeared from the Martial Palace. They were heading toward the Martial Saint Dynasty.
Wu Jiu had a unique method to communicate with the Imperial Emperor, so when both men entered the Martial Saint Dynasty, the Imperial Emperor had appeared inside the Martial Saint Palace.
“Greetings, Imperial Emperor.”
Wu Jiu and Jiang Chen bowed at the Imperial Emperor at the same time.
Swoosh… swoosh… swoosh…
At the same time, trails of light started shooting into the Martial Saint Palace. Those who could come in like this, aside from the ones with the Imperial Emperor’s approval, their statuses were incredibly high.
Soon, a dozen men arrived at the Martial Saint Palace. These were all the emperors, as well as Shangguan Sheng and Tiangang Yi, the same group of people as the last time Jiang Chen was here.
“Jiang Chen, I never expected you to still have the courage to return!"
The Seventh Emperor was the first person to provoke Jiang Chen.
The Imperial Emperor raised his harm, signaling for everyone to be quiet. After that, he threw his gaze at Jiang Chen’s face and asked with an indifferent tone, “Jiang Chen, have you completed the mission I gave you?”
“It is completed.”
Jiang Chen lowered his head said.
“Ridiculous, how dare you make such a shameless boast in front of the Imperial Emperor?! You simply have no respect for the Imperial Emperor! We shall have you beheaded right now!”
Right after Jiang Chen finished speaking, the Seventh Emperor immediately flipped out. Not only him, all the other men sneered. Only Shangguan Sheng had a gloomy and vicious look in his eyes, because he had received a message from the Shangguan Clan a few days ago, a message stating that Elder Shangguan Ying’s soul tablet had broken a few days ago, meaning he had died.
A Late Combat Soul warrior was considered the backbone of the Shangguan Clan, the real top of the clan. A loos like this was unbearable.
“Jiang Chen, you said you’ve fixed the dimensional crack?”
The Imperial Emperor was startled for a moment, then he asked with great interest.
“Of course. I wouldn’t be here otherwise.”
Jiang Chen replied with a smile.
“Impossible, this young man is simply making an irresponsible remark, there is no way he can fix a dimensional crack!”
The Tenth Emperor said loudly.
“Jiang Chen, you better think twice before letting out such irresponsible remarks.”
Shangguan Sheng said with a somber expression.
“I think you’re the ones being ridiculous here, you don’t have the right to judge anyone in front of the Imperial Emperor!”
Wu Jiu opposed the group with equally harsh words.
“Jiang Chen, since you said you have fixed the dimensional crack, I would like to know, how did you do it?”
The Imperial Emperor asked.
“I think the Imperial Emperor knows that only a Combat King warrior who has mastered the Dimensional Laws can fix a dimensional crack, and since I’m only a Divine Core warrior, there is no way I can do that. Based on this, I assumed that the reason why the Imperial Emperor gave me this mission was to find another method to settle this problem, and I did. I used a formation called the Skymend Formation to seal the dimensional crack, bringing peace back to Mount Origin. No Dimensional Creatures on the other side of the dimensional crack can break this seal.”
Jiang Chen explained. He was being tricky with his words, silently putting the Imperial Emperor in checkmate, because he said he sealed the dimensional crack with the Skymend Formation, and hadn’t fixed it completely. The Imperial Emperor couldn’t pick on what he said, or else, it would appear as if the Imperial Emperor had some bad intentions behind his decision.
“You said you sealed the dimensional crack with a formation?”
The Imperial Emperor’s expression changed.
Jiang Chen nodded his head.
“Impossible! With your Late Divine Core cultivation, even if you’ve mastered some formations, their power would be too limited; there is no way it could seal the dimensional crack.”
The Imperial Emperor suddenly stood up from his throne.
“Precisely! This guy is just making things up! This isn’t something a Divine Core junior can accomplish!”
The Seventh Emperor said loudly.
“How does the Seventh Emperor know I can’t accomplish this? Do you mean that the Imperial Emperor purposely gave me an impossible mission, and sent me to hell? The Imperial Emperor is an honorable man, he is not wicked like you think he is!”
Jiang Chen looked at the Seventh Emperor with a cold gaze.
The Seventh Emperor was furious, but there wasn’t really anything he could say, as Jiang Chen had dragged the Imperial Emperor into their conversation.
“Jiang Chen, I’ll proceed to Mount Origin and take a look. You need to know what the consequences for lying to me are.”
The Imperial Emperor threw a sharp gaze onto Jiang Chen’s face.
“Imperial Emperor, you can just go have a look, and you will know whether or not I’m lying to you.”
Jiang Chen said.
After saying that, the Imperial Emperor simply disappeared from the Martial Saint Palace. It seemed like he was going to Mount Origin to find out the truth. All Combat King warriors had mastered the Dimensional Laws, and they could travel between dimensions any time they wanted to without leaving behind any traces.
Jiang Chen looked relaxed now. He knew the Imperial Emperor would definitely go and find out the truth himself. After all, what he had done was something unbelievable, and the Imperial Emperor wouldn’t believe it without seeing it himself.
As for the Skymend Formation, Jiang Chen didn’t worry the Imperial Emperor would find the Great Saint Laws, and with the Imperial Emperor’s position, he wouldn’t purposely lie either.
“What a joke! Sealing a dimensional crack with a formation? You just don’t know your own limits!”
The Tenth Emperor said with a sneer on his face.
“My abilities are not something you’ll ever be able to imagine.”
Jiang Chen threw his glance onto the Tenth Emperor’s face.
“Young man, who do you think you are? How dare you talk to me like that?!”
The Tenth Emperor was really angry. With his status and position, as well as his cultivation, no junior would dare talk to him like that.
“Who do you think you are then? Stop relying on your seniority in front of daddy! In less than a year, I will be able to crush you with just the tip of my finger!”
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed. It was a huge mistake for this Tenth Emperor to pick on him.
“Bastard, you’re courting death!”
The Tenth Emperor was extremely pissed off, he instantly unleashed his killing intent.
“Lao Shi, are you going to attack someone in the Martial Saint Palace?”
Wu Jiu shouted.
Only now did the Tenth Emperor retract his killing intent. The Martial Saint Palace was the heart of the Martial Saint Dynasty, and he just didn’t have the right to attack someone here, even though he was an emperor.
“The Imperial Emperor has gone there to check it out himself. If this guy is lying, there will only be one ending for him. Let’s just wait and see.”
Tiangang Yi said. Just like all the other men, he also didn’t believe that Jiang Chen could really seal the dimensional crack with a formation.
“Jiang Chen, let me ask you, did you kill Shangguan Ying?”
Shangguan Sheng asked in a cold manner.
“I’m sorry, I’ve killed too many people, I can’t really remember who that person you asked about is.”
Jiang Chen said with an indifferent tone. When talking to his enemy, he would never be polite.
A sudden vibration appeared in the quiet sky. After that, a man wearing dragon robe came out from the thin air, just like a ghost. The place he appeared was where the dimensional crack was found. This man was none other than the Imperial Emperor who came here from the Martial Saint Palace.
With the Imperial Emperor’s incredible speed, it only took him a few minutes to reach Mount Origin. After he arrived, he immediately looked at the Skymend Formation.
