Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 492
Chapter 492 – Heavenhawk Island
Hearing Jiang Chen express his interest in the Chaotic Ocean, Tan Lang instantly felt happy. He was previously wondering how he should ask Jiang Chen for help, so realizing that Jiang Chen was interested in going there was naturally great news for him.
“I’ll be going to the Chaotic Ocean tomorrow. I wonder if Brother Jiang can assist me? If you could go with me, I’m sure my hunting trip will be successful!”
Tan Lang asked Jiang Chen for help without beating around the bush. His honesty made Jiang Chen feel glad.
“You can be at ease! With the help of this master dog, I guarantee that you will become the 13th Tycoon!”
Before Jiang Chen could say anything, Big Yellow promised him. His words made it seem as if everything would be done with ease.
There was no doubt that Jiang Chen and Big Yellow’s promise was a great help for Tan Lang.
The same day, Chang Qing threw a grand welcoming feast for Jiang Chen and Tan Lang in the City Lord Mansion. Early morning the next day, the group set off toward the Chaotic Ocean.
The Chaotic Ocean was located within the Liang Province, but it wasn’t a place governed by the four major powers. It was a place where true chaos existed. With Jiang Chen and Tan Lang’s ability, it only took them a few dozen minutes to travel from Hongyue City to the Chaotic Ocean.
The blue sky was clear of clouds this day. In front of the group was a boundless stretch of water. Even from afar, they were able to sense the restless and chaotic aura filling the air above the ocean. Although the ocean surface seemed calm, there was a raging undercurrent beneath it.
The Chaotic Ocean wasn’t as large as the ocean surrounding the Eastern Continent, but there were plenty of islands scattered across. Rich resources could be found on these islands, making them all something that many pirates sought after.
In the sky above the Chaotic Ocean, figures emitting powerful auras could be seen flying by from time to time.
"Brother Jiang, this is the Chaotic Ocean."
Tan Lang said.
“I heard there are seven pirate leaders here.”
Jiang Chen said.
“That’s right. Those seven pirates are known by many. All of them are Combat Kings, and they are all fierce and brutal. They truly are not easy to deal with.”
Chang Qing explained.
"Are all of them human?"
Jiang Chen continued asking.
“No. Some of them are humans, some are demons. However, to become famous in the Chaotic Ocean, all of them are extremely cruel and merciless, and they are all criminal fugitives. They’ve also gathered a group of strong fugitives under them, and they also control the ocean demons to fight for them. Each of these seven pirates has their own force, making them difficult to deal with.”
Tan Lang said.
“The pirate who is ranked as the strongest must be really strong then. Do you have any idea what realm he has cultivated to?”
Jiang Chen asked. He showed a great interest in those pirates of the Chaotic Ocean.
“I have no idea about this, I’ve never met him before. He is a very strange pirate, he has never robbed any cultivators before. Many of the cultivators who have visited the Chaotic Ocean have never seen this man either.”
Tan Lang shook his head, expressing his lack of knowledge regarding this number one pirate.
This caused Jiang Chen and Big Yellow to feel puzzled. This was a man even Tan Lang had no information about, a man who rarely showed himself to the public, and yet, he was called the number one pirate of the Chaotic Ocean. This was truly strange.
As if having noticed Jiang Chen’s doubt, Tan Lang continue, “The number one title is given by the other six pirate leaders as well as the ordinary pirates. According to rumors, when that number one pirate first arrived at the Chaotic Ocean, he vowed to become the number one pirate. Many people refused to accept his claim and went ahead to challenge him. However, none of these challengers came back alive, causing him to eventually obtain the number one title.”
"How can that be?"
Jiang Chen was startled for a moment, then a strong interest surged up in his mind. Without guessing, he knew that this must ben amazing guy. However, Jiang Chen was unable to understand one thing. This mysterious guy had claimed the title of the number one pirate, but he hadn’t stolen anything from anyone, so why did he even want to become the number one pirate?
“Worry not, Brother Jiang, this is the first time we’ve come to the Chaotic Ocean, and we won’t run into that number one pirate. He is a lone wolf, and he nearly maintains no contact with other pirates. All this time, no matter how big of an event takes place in the Chaotic Ocean, he has never showed himself.”
Tan Lang tried to comfort Jiang Chen not to worry about this number one pirate.
"Tell me your destination for this trip."
Jiang Chen smiled. Tan Lang was here to kill a pirate and avenge the 13th Tycoon, and also show the name of the Asura Palace to this region.
“Heavenhawk Island. I have already gathered all information available. The 13th Tycoon died on this Heavenhawk Island.”
Tan Lang said.
“The master of this Heavenhawk Island is one of the seven pirate leader of this Chaotic Ocean. As the shape of this island resembles that of a hawk, it was given this name. The original form of the Island Master is actually that of a hawk as well. He’s at the peak of the First Grade Demon King realm, a terrifying existence.”
From the side, Huo Wei told Jiang Chen the information he had about the Heavenhawk Island.
“First Grade Demon King.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. Although this pirate wasn’t a Second Grade Demon King, it was still very useful to him. If this hawk demon possessed a special bloodline, Jiang Chen could use its demon soul to break straight through to the Combat King realm.
“We’re not far from the Heavenhawk Island. Let’s hurry over there and kill the Heavenhawk Island Master before anyone else does.”
In fact, before Tan Lang bumped into Jiang Chen, he had little confidence in this mission. Asking him to kill a peak First Grade Demon King was nearly an impossible mission, and he would perhaps have to work with other fellow disciples. But now, with Jiang Chen working with him, he had full confidence, as Jiang Chen was a man who had killed a Second Grade Demon King, let alone that Heavenhawk Island Master.
Led by Tan Lang, the group flew toward the Heavenhawk Island with great speed.
Four young men could be seen flying from another direction. Those four young men were wearing uniforms identical to the one Tan Lang and Chang Qing were wearing. Judging from this, one could easily see that these were also disciples of the Asura Palace.
These four men were all emitting powerful auras, and they all wore arrogant expressions. They were clearly men who had no respect for anyone. Of course, being able to reach the Combat King realm at such a young age, they deserved to feel a bit proud of themselves.
When Tan Lang saw the four men, the group saw them as well.
“I was wondering who it was, and it turned out to be junior disciple Tan. What’s wrong? You’re going to hunt for the Heavenhawk Island Master and fight for the position of the 13th Tycoon?”
One of the men said with a sarcastic tone. He was a First Grade Combat King, but when comparing talents, he was still weaker than Tan Lang. Jiang Chen could easily tell this with just a single look.
A faint smile emerged on Jiang Chen’s face. These men were obvious core disciples of the Asura Palace, and also competitors for the position of the 13th Tycoon. It was no wonder they behaved with such hostility toward Tan Lang.
“Of course. The position of the 13th Tycoon is obtained from fighting for it.”
Tan Lang said in a serious manner.
“Hmph! Tan Lang, you better not think so highly of yourself! With just the few of you, there is no way you can be a match for the Heavenhawk Island Master! Wait, who is this guy? I’ve never seen him before, and he’s not from the Asura Palace either? Oh, he’s not even a Combat King? Is this the helper you’ve found for yourself? Are you kidding me?”
Another man coldly harrumphed as he rested his eyes upon Jiang Chen’s face and made some ridiculing comments.
“Who are you? Others are fighting to become the 13th Tycoon, and what the fuck does that have to do with you?”
Jiang Chen gazed at the disciple from the Asura Palace and impolitely responded to his comments. When dealing with someone like this, Jiang Chen would never show any mercy.
"Bastard! What did you just say?!"
The man was instantly enraged as he unleashed his Combat King aura. It looked like he was about to attack Jiang Chen.
“Li Dong, enough! We will fight with our true abilities, there is no point in arguing like this! Do you really want to stir up an internal conflict before attacking Heavenhawk Island?”
Tan Lang suddenly shouted out. He was a man with guts, and it could easily be seen from how he fought back in the Southern Continent. Furthermore, if he was a soft man, he wouldn’t have been able to rise so quickly amidst the fierce competition between disciples in the Asura Palace.
“Tan Lang, let me give you a friendly reminder. You are a man who just broke through to the Combat King realm, so don’t overestimate yourself and try to fight for the position of the 13th Tycoon. Furthermore, you’re no match for the Heavenhawk Island Master. As your senior disciple, let me point you toward a bright path; follow us and help kill the Heavenhawk Island Master, and elect senior disciple Li Hao as the new 13th Tycoon. Then, just keep following him in the future. That can only bring you benefits.”
The youngster called Li Dong loudly said. The Li Hao mentioned by him was the muscular man who stood in the center of the group. He had not spoken a single word since the beginning, but the arrogance on his face was the strongest.
“In my opinion, you should all be polite to Tan Lang. If not, you will all suffer when he becomes the 13th Tycoon.”
Jiang Chen said with an indifferent tone.
“Where did this fool come from?! You’re just looking for trouble, you should die!”
Li Dong was clearly angered by Jiang Chen’s words. Without hesitating, he waved his hand and unleashed a bright beam that shot toward Jiang Chen with incredible speed. Before Jiang Chen could do anything, Tan Lang dashed forward, waved his hand and blocked the beam. After that, he shouted, “Li Hao! We will go our separate ways and fight for the position with our own abilities!”
After saying that, Tan Lang grabbed Jiang Chen and flew away. The reason why he blocked Li Dong’s attack was actually to save Li Dong. He had seen Jiang Chen’s approach to matters before, and if Jiang Chen really struck, Li Dong would face a devastating consequence for his action.
The reason he came to the Chaotic Ocean was to kill the master of the Heavenhawk Island. He didn’t want any conflicts to arise between Jiang Chen and the Asura Palace.
“Do you want this master dog to bite them to death?”
Big Yellow who hadn’t spoken in a while suddenly bared his teeth in a ferocious manner.
“Just ignore them. Our target is the Heavenhawk Island.”
Tan Lang continued, “That Li Dong and Li Hao are brothers. Li Hao is a peak First Grade Combat King, a tough competitor. This time he has gathered a few men to help him out. It looks like he is determined to become the 13th Tycoon.”
Behind them, the group of four men looked at Tan Lang and the others who were flying away. Li Hao, who hadn’t spoken a word suddenly spoke with a cold voice, “What ignorance. Once I become the 13th Tycoon, I’ll teach him a good lesson.”
