Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 503
The Eighth Tycoon
Chapter 503 - The Eighth Tycoon
Big Yellow couldn’t help but roll his eyes one more. He thought that he was frightening with his Dragon Horse bloodline, but when compared to Jiang Chen, the gap between them immediately became apparent. Big Yellow was a First Grade Demon King, and if he attacked with all his abilities and strength, he would be capable of kill a Second Grade Combat King. However, it was very difficult for him to kill any Third Grade Combat Kings. On the other side, Jiang Chen had only just broken through to the First Grade Combat King realm, and he was able to kill Third Grade Combat Kings, and fight against Fourth Grade Combat Kings.
In any case, Big Yellow had long ago gotten used to Jiang Chen’s abnormal ability. He was back to normal after a brief moment of depression.
“I’ve finally broken through to the Combat King realm.”
Jiang Chen let out an emotion-filled sigh. He had waited for this day for a long time; waited to become a Combat King. It meant that he had stepped onto a higher platform in his road of cultivation, it also meant that the Combat Emperor realm was no longer far ahead of him. Soon, he would be able to break through to the Saint realm, returning to the pinnacle of his previous life.
Most importantly, after breaking through to the Combat King realm, Jiang Chen was now able to properly use Spatial Energy, and put his Spatial Shift skill to good use. The Spatial Shift skill was a supreme movement technique. The put it bluntly, with this technique, if Jiang Chen wanted to run away, even a Sixth Grade Combat King would not be able to catch up to him.
Raising his head, Jiang Chen saw more and more golden rays shooting from out the desolate island. The monk was obviously unable to control the energy leaking out from the Third Grade Minor Saint’s sarira.
“That damn monk is creating such a ruckus! It’s impossible for his enemies not to find him!”
Big Yellow gloomily said. Initially, he believed that if the monk could hide deep enough, those warriors from the four major powers might not be able to find him so easily. However, judging from the current situation, let alone those four powers, even ordinary people of the Chaotic Ocean would be able to discover his whereabouts with ease.
In the distance, two human cultivators were flying in the direction of this desolate island. They were actually just passing by this area. If it was in the past, all those who flew past these desolate islands would just go straight past them, and no one would stop by for even a single second. But now, as these two cultivators saw the bright light, they were immediately attracted to it.
“Look, what’s going on over there?”
“It seems there is a treasure. Let’s go and check it out.”
After a brief discussion, both men turned around and began flying toward the source of the bright lights. Seeing this, Jiang Chen shook his head then turned to Big Yellow and said, “Big Yellow, it’s time for you to perform.”
“Kaka, they’re just two small shrimps! Let this master dog handle them; I’ll scare the shit outta them!”
While nodding his head, Big Yellow’s huge body shot into the air. In just the blink of an eye, he had arrived in front of the two men. The two men were taken aback when they saw a big yellow dog suddenly appear in front of them. Although they were only Combat Soul warriors, they were still able to sense the strong Demon King aura coming from Big Yellow, causing their expressions to instantly change.
"Scram, or die!"
Bloated with pride, Big Yellow carried his head up high, portraying a look saying ‘daddy here is the strongest existence underneath the heavens’, while telling the two men with an arrogant tone.
Hearing his words, neither of the two dared to hesitate. They immediately turned around and fled, scared that they were too slow. What place was this? This was the Chaotic Ocean! The place with the most chaotic atmosphere, and this place was the most remote area of the Chaotic Ocean. Bumping into a Demon King in this place was definitely not something good. However, the Demon King had only asked them to scram. They truly felt that they were very lucky on this day.
In the following time, the ruckus caused by the monk absorbing the sarira became bigger and bigger. Bigger rays were flickering around the island, and one could even hear a faint, yet constant buzzing sound coming from within. Any cultivator passing by this area would definitely be attracted to it, and try to figure out what was going on. However, all of them were chased away by a big yellow dog. During this, there was even a First Grade Combat King who was attracted here, and a fierce fight erupted between him and Big Yellow. Of course, Big Yellow gained a complete victory over this warrior. After forcing the warrior to call him master dog three times, he set the poor guy free.
However, as too many people had passed by this area and left, they quickly returned with even more people. Three hours later, several figures could be seen flying toward here from all over the Chaotic Ocean, hovering around in the air and staring at the golden rays being emitted from the island. If not for Big Yellow blocking them with his mighty attitude, perhaps some of them would have already rushed over to the island.
“It’s that dog! Be careful, this dog is not to be trifled with, he can kill Combat Kings with a single bite! Since that dog is here, I’m guessing that the young white-clothed man is here as well.”
“Those golden rays look familiar to me… oh, I remember now! It has the same aura as the treasure that emerged on Heavenhawk Island! The monk took the treasure back then, so I think that the monk is hiding on that island.”
“Judging from this situation, that monk must have teamed up with that youngster in white. If my guess is correct, that monk is currently in the midst of absorbing the treasure, while the young man and his dog are guarding him.”
Many people had recognized Big Yellow, and some even recognized the aura of the treasure.
“Haha, a good shot is soon arriving! Now that such a long time has passed, I bet the warriors of the four major powers have already arrived at the Chaotic Ocean. However, why hasn’t the monk left this area after receiving the treasure, and instead began absorbing it here? The warriors of the four major powers will definitely find him here, and at that point of time, an intense fight will be unavoidable.”
“That’s right. That monk has killed many geniuses from the four major powers. With their approach to matters, there is no way they will let this monk off the hook easily. Certain death is all that awaits that monk.”
“There is something that puzzles me though; why has that young man teamed up with that monk? Do they know each other? I don’t think so. I remember that he was a helper invited by Tan Lang, so he should be with the Asura Palace. However, this young man actually set the Heavenhawk Island Master free… he truly is a strange man.”
The desolate islands that no one usually cared for had now become the center of attention. No matter who it was, the monk, or the youngster in white, they had both become the most famous persons of the Chaotic Ocean. The number one Pirate Lord of the Chaotic Ocean had killed many geniuses from the four major powers, and he was now publicly absorbing the treasure he had robbed. He was either courting death, or he had never put the four major powers in his eyes.
On one of the desolate islands, Jiang Chen’s brows were furrowed tightly. The current situation was the worst of every possibility, and it looked like an intense battle was inevitable. Although Jiang Chen didn’t like how the four major powers behaved, and their approach to handling matters, he had no intention of offending all four major powers in the Liang Province right after arriving at the Divine Continent. If he did, how was he going to spend his time in the Divine Continent?
But at the same time, Jiang Chen was a man with principles. Once he decided to do something, he would go all out for it. Thus, in order to repay the debt of gratitude he had for Patriarch Greenlotus, he didn’t mind becoming the enemy of four major powers. In his previous life, he would be surrounded by enemies wherever he went. He had long ago gotten used to the days where he had to fight the world by himself, and he even missed the lofty sentiment he had when fighting all by himself.
In any case, he had decided to help the monk.
Right at this moment, an explosive sound could be heard from a distance, attracting the crowd’s attention in an instant. A large crack had suddenly appeared in the air, and three men shot out from the void. They were all Combat Kings. Two of them were weaker, while the one in the middle was the strongest. He looked to be in his thirties; his body was tall and muscular, and his red hair was fluttering in the wind. He was portraying an arrogant look; an air of arrogant that only belonged to a genius. His combat strength? Shockingly, he was a Fourth Grade Combat King.
“They’re from the Asura Palace! The mighty warriors of the Asura Palace are finally here!”
Someone cried out in shock.
Jiang Chen saw this group as well. He actually recognized two of these three men. They were Li Hao and Xiu Rui. However, he didn’t know who the Fourth Grade Combat King who came with them was. And he also didn’t see Tan Lang, causing him to feel worried.
“The Asura Palace is the fastest; they’re the first to arrive here. That man is the Eighth Tycoon of the Asura Palace, Ling Yi. I heard he just broke through to the Fourth Grade Combat King realm not long ago, and is a man with frightening approaches. It’s hard for him to find a suitable match among the same level as himself. I’m guessing that monk is truly finished this time.”
“Now that the Eighth Tycoon Ling Yi has personally come here, that monk will certainly face death! The monk is only a Third Grade Combat King, so how could he possibly be a match for Ling Yi, who is a Fourth Grade Combat King? Even with the help of that young man and dog, it’s still useless. The gap between their cultivation bases is simply too huge!”
“Many geniuses of the Asura Palace were killed. If not for this, the Eighth Tycoon wouldn’t have come here personally.”
The people in the crowd were shocked. With the presence of the Eighth Tycoon, it looked like a good show to watch would appear.
Ling Yi and the other two men soon arrived near the desolate island. Resting his sharp glance on the golden rays being emitted from the island, Ling Yi asked, “Is this the place?”
“Yes. Those golden rays have the same aura as that treasure. That monk must be hiding on this island.”
Li Hao said while gritting his teeth tightly. One of his arms had nearly been crushed by that monk, and he had yet to recover. So, when he thought of that damn monk, he felt a strong desire to rip him into a thousand pieces.
“Hmph! He actually dared kill those of the Asura Palace? He’s courting death!”
Ling Yi coldly harrumphed. With a sway of his body, he flew straight toward the source of the golden rays. Suddenly, a white beam shot up from below, preventing him from flying any further. It was a young white-clothed man. As for Big Yellow, he was now hovering on the other side. Although he wasn’t a match for this Ling Yi, he could still defeat both Li Hao and Xiu Rui with ease.
Ling Yi was startled by the fact that someone were preventing him from flying any further. Staring at the young man in white who had suddenly appeared in front of him, Ling Yi said with a cold voice, “Who are you, and how dare you block mine, the Tycoon’s path?”
Ling Yi furrowed his brows.
“Senior disciple Ling, he is that Jiang Chen, the person who set the Heavenhawk Island Master free.”
Li Hao quickly told him Jiang Chen’s background. His hatred for Jiang Chen was not any less than his hatred of the monk. Previously, Jiang Chen had shamed his face in front of so many people, causing him to resent him.
“Oh? You’re that helper invited by Tan Lang? I do want to ask you the reason for why you set that hawk free. However, let’s put that matter aside for now. For the sake of you having previously helped the Asura Palace, I won’t make a fuss about that issues. Now, get out of my way. I need to kill that monk.”
Ling Yi was first surprised, then he continued speaking in an arrogant manner.
"I'm sorry, you can’t touch that monk."
Jiang Chen said with a calm voice. However, his words brought a tremendous storm to the crowd, causing everyone to rest their eyes on Jiang Chen’s face. Judging from his words, he wanted to help that monk and stand against Ling Yi? Was there something wrong with his brain?
