Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 412
Who Will Fight?
Chapter 412 – Who Will Fight?
“You’re right, let’s get this over with!”
Nangong Yunfan nodded his head. He agreed with what Nangong Yunzheng said. If they kept fighting like this, they wouldn’t be able to find a winner even after fighting for three days.
Nangong Yunfan didn’t want to delay any longer either. With a sway of his arm, he retrieved a gigantic sword. It was a dazzling sword that was emitting a cold shine. The sword had a long and wide body, and its razor sharp edge had numerous mystical symbols engraved on top of it. Clearly, it was the highest grade Superior Combat Weapon.
On the other side, Nangong Yunzheng retrieved a sword as well. Compared to Nangong Yunfan’s sword, his sword looked much lighter, as the sword’s body was as thin as a cicada’s wing. However, buzzing sounds could be heard just from a casual swing, and it too was emitting a cold shine that no one dared face directly. It wasn’t difficult to see that this sword possessed incredible destructive power.
“Mighty Dipper Strike!”
Nangong Yunfan let out a loud shout as he swung the gigantic sword in his hand and unleashed countless sword beams. The sword beams weaved into a gigantic web that caused the air to produce cracking sounds. At the same time, a powerful wind blew out from the gigantic sword. With a thunder-like energy, Nangong Yunfan simply swung his sword forward and approached Nangong Yunzheng.
“Boundless Sword Energies!”
Nangong Yunzheng didn’t want to be outdone. He immediately raised his sword and counter attacked. His strike was simple and fast, and the sword itself was emitting a bright light as if a gigantic poisonous snake.
The two Superior Weapons collided and produced a large amount of sparks. Right at the center of the collision was a color of vagueness, as the void around them nearly exploded from their powerful attacks. The energy whirlpool formed from their collision was a dead spot, and if anyone got close to it, they would instantly be killed.
Tap, tap, tap…
Both men were knocked back dozens of meters before they could stabilize their bodies. Similar to all previous instances, their exchange ended in a tie.
“Hmph! Yunfan, enough playing around with you!”
Nangong Yunzheng coldly harrumphed. The smile on his face became thicker, and with a flip of his palm, he retrieved a golden talisman. The talisman instantly exploded upon appearing, turning into glowing dots that immediately penetrated into Nangong Yunzheng’s body.
In the following moment, cracking sounds could be heard from Nangong Yunzheng’s body, and his energy began surging like a fierce tsunami.
“What’s going on? Why did Nangong Yunzheng’s energy suddenly become so powerful?”
Tu Yi who had been watching the fight worriedly cried out in shock.
“It’s because of that talisman! Nangong Yunzheng did prepare himself, he actually has the ability to increase his combat strength by such great amounts in such a short amount of time! Family chief is going to lose this time!”
“What strong energy! His combat strength is at least twice as much now as it was before; the gap between their strength is now very obvious!”
Everyone’s expression changed dramatically, only the people from Nangong Yunzheng’s group showed excitement on their faces. No matter what, it looked like they would win this second match.
“Little Chen, what kind of talisman is that? Why is it so powerful? It instantly doubled uncle’s combat strength!”
Nangong Wentian was greatly shocked as well.
“That’s a Source of Combat Strength Talisman. I’m guessing it was made by a Combat King warrior. This kind of talisman is really difficult to produce, only a Combat King warrior has the ability to make one. However, no ordinary warrior would make this talisman, because not only does it require a lot of time, it will also consume a huge amount of source energy. Under normal circumstances, only those who are dying will make some for their descendants, in order to protect them. I believe Nangong Yunzheng’s Source of Combat Strength Talisman was given to him by the Profound River Palace. The Profound River Palace has truly invested heavily in order to get your family secret.”
Jiang Chen explained.
His words once again attracted many surprised glances, including from Tu Yi. No one dared underestimate this ordinary looking young man any longer, because none of them had heard about this Source of Combat Strength Talisman before, yet this young man seemed to know every detail about it. This truly surprised all of them.
“Using this Source of Combat Strength Talisman, Nangong Yunzheng’s combat strength has now doubled. Uncle is going to lose this match.”
Jiang Chen shook his head and said.
“Yunfan, give up now!”
Tu Yi immediately shouted toward the fighting stage. Judging from the current situation, Nangong Yunfan was going to face certain defeat, and if that was the case, he might as well just admit defeat and save himself from unnecessary injuries.
In the sky above, an uncertain expression could be seen on Nangong Yunfan’s face. This match was extremely important to him. If he lost, that meant they would have to fight the third match, and their chances of winning that was extremely slim. However, it seemed like it was meaningless for him to keep fighting with all his strength, as it would only bring him unnecessary injuries. He was longer a match for Nangong Yunzheng, who had doubled his combat strength.
At this moment, Nangong Yunfan was facing one of the most difficult decisions in his life.
“Giving up is uncle’s best option now, as it is meaningless for him to keep fighting this unwinnable match.”
Jiang Chen said. Even if Nangong Yunfan gave up this second match, he wouldn’t think that Nangong Yunfan was losing face, or being a coward. Nangong Yunfan’s status was after all different from that of others. He wasn’t representing himself in this match, but the entire Nangong family! He was the family chief, and for them, if anything bad happened to their chief, their leader, the entire family would collapse, and the Nangong family would be struck with unprecedented chaos. At that point of time, Nangong Yunzheng would be able to take control of the Nangong family without any resistance, and become the new family chief. Since he was now going to face certain defeat, there was no need for him to take any unnecessary risks. No matter what, Nangong Wentian had won the first match, so they will had hope for the third match.
Energy waves were fluttering about violently. Nangong Yunzheng’s energy was becoming stronger and stronger.
“Dad, just admit defeat. I promise you, we will win the third match!”
Nangong Wentian told Nangong Yunfan through his divine sense.
“Chief, just give up. There’s no shame in doing so.”
“That’s right, they’ve cheated us! It’s meaningless for us to fight this match any longer!”
All the people of the Nangong family were shouting out loudly. This match was no longer fair for Nangong Yunfan. His opponent had used a Source of Combat Strength Talisman, and that was considered cheating. If Nangong Yunfan continued fighting under such a situation, it wouldn’t be a brave action, but an idiotic one.
Nangong Yunfan let out a heavy sigh before helplessly saying, “I admit defeat.”
After saying that, Nangong Yunfan put his gigantic sword back into the storage ring, turned around and returned to the Nangong family’s camp.
Nangong Yunzheng immediately laughed out in joy and retracted his energy. He too returned to his own group. He couldn’t be any happier than he was now. As long as he won this match, he was pretty much guaranteed to win the third match, because he had invited a reputable person to help him fight the third match. With Nangong Yunfan’s resources, he would at most get Tu Yi to fight the third match. Although Tu Yi was a famous man, when compared to the person he invited here, the difference between them was not small.
Nangong Yunfan’s face looked pale right now. He had been badly defeated in this second match.
“Dad, don’t give up hope! Eldest uncle cheated; there is nothing we could have done about it.”
Nangong Wentian comforted his father.
“We have lost the second match, and the third match will begin immediately. I think we’re going to lose, as we have no idea what kind of warrior Nangong Yunzheng invited here.”
Nangong Yunfan said as he furrowed his brows. A worried expression covered his face.
“If there are no other options, let me fight this third match. Even if I have to die, I won’t let them get what it is they aim for!”
Tu Yi said in a resolute manner.
“Dad, let Little Chen fight the third match for us!”
Nangong Wentian said.
“Wentian, this third match will decide our future, this isn’t something funny.”
Liang Zhui said with a frown on his face. Although his impression toward Jiang Chen had changed a lot, letting Jiang Chen represent the Nangong family in the third match was just a joke in his eyes.
“Elder Liang, Little Chen has broken through to the Early Combat Soul realm now! When he was at the Divine Core realm, he was able to kill Mid Combat Soul warriors! With his current strength, unless a Combat King warrior appears to fight him personally, no one will be a match for him!”
Nangong Wentian said with a serious expression. He was really confident in Jiang Chen.
His words caused everyone to look at Jiang Chen once more. Although they were somewhat doubting Nangong Wentian’s words, they did believe he wouldn’t make light of the Nangong family’s future.
However, could an Early Combat Soul warrior really fight a Late Combat Soul warrior? Wasn’t this a joke? Did such an abnormal monster truly exist underneath the heavens?
“Let us first see who the opponent is.”
Tu Yi said. No one honestly had any confidence in Jiang Chen. In their minds, Jiang Chen was just an outsider.
On the other side, Nangong Yunzheng had fully retracted his energy. He turned to Nangong Yunfan and said with a loud voice, “Yunfan, the score is one to one! Now, we need to proceed to the third match! Just like we agreed on beforehand, the third match will be fought by the helper we get! I don’t care who you got to help you out, my helper is showing up now.”
The smile on Nangong Yunzheng’s face was like a blooming flower. In his eyes, the helper he got would win the third match without any questions. No person from the Nangong family would be a match for this helper.
“Young miss Wu Ningzhu, please show yourself!”
Nangong Yunzheng shouted into the sky. After that, a figure dressed in black appeared from afar. In a very shorty amount of time, she arrived above the Nangong family grounds and landed on the fighting stage.
The crowd immediately cried out in shock upon seeing who it was. It was a girl with a sexy figure, and a tight black dress on her body that caused her to look ever more seductive. Her curved figure had a perfect ratio; just this body figure alone would be enough to make almost any man go crazy.
She had black hair that fell down to her shoulders and a black veil that covered her face, barely allowing her magnificent face to be seen.
“Oh heavens, that’s the Profound River Palace’s Holy Maiden, Wu Ningzhu! How are we going to win this match?!”
“Nangong Yunzheng actually invited the number one genius of the Southern Continent’s younger generation! Although Wu Ningzhu is still young, she has already reached the Late Combat Soul realm, and is known as the number one warrior underneath the Combat King realm! I heard that during the incident in the Dancing Sun City not long ago, she was able to fight three great guardians of the Demon King Palace all alone without being defeated by them! There is no one from the Nangong family who can defeat her!”
“Finished, we’re done for! With Wu Ningzhu fighting in this third match, there is no way we can win! Even Elder Tu Yi won’t be able to withstand more than ten attacks from her!”
The expressions of everyone changed. Nangong Yunzheng had actually invited this famous and legendary existence to help him; how were they going to fight this third match? And who were they going to send?
