Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 552
Chapter 552 – Steamrolled
“I clearly said I only had that much Nine Solar Holy Water, and I exchanged it all with the Heavenly Tower. This is really out of my expectations. With the Heavenly Tower’s reputation, they actually employed such dirty tricks in the dark. They’re truly worthy of despise.”
Jiang Chen said with a cold voice, not hiding his despise toward the Heavenly Tower.
Listening to Jiang Chen, young master Qi showed no signs of shame on his face. Instead, his eyes lit up, “Oh, I almost forgot, you received ten million Heavenly Yuan Pills from the Heavenly Tower, truly a great amount! Now, those ten million Yuan Pills, as well as all your other belongings and Nine Solar Holy Water; all the treasures you’ve robbed today, it all belongs to me, young master Qi! Everything you’ve gotten so far is all mine!”
The more young master Qi spoke, the more excited he became. In the end, he simply began laughing out loudly. He was no longer looking at Jiang Chen as if he was looking at a human, but instead a treasure vault. Putting aside those things Jiang Chen had received from robbing others, just the ten million Heavenly Yuan Pills alone was an astronomical figure for young master Qi. Now, all of it would belong to him, making him excited.
There wasn’t anyone else around, so young master Qi could show his true colors. After all, this was his true goal. Not only was he going to take away all of Jiang Chen’s belongings, he would also kill Jiang Chen. A dead man tells no tales.
Not only that, judging from the current situation, he would be praised by many after killing Jiang Chen.
Tan Lang shook his head. All humans were greedy by nature. The Devil Realm was more lawless than the Chaotic Ocean. Killing someone and taking all his belongings was common here. As a matter of fact, Jiang Chen only robbed, but didn’t kill. Young master Qi was also the same; the reason why he was here was to that he could rob Jiang Chen.
“This monk really admires how you show your shamelessness in such a righteous manner.”
Tyrant said with a sigh. Perhaps others might fear the Heavenly Sect, but Tyrant did not. This was because they were in the Western Region, so no matter how strong the Heavenly Sect was, they would have to be stronger than Tyrant’s background. As long as his master decided to interfere, the Heavenly Sect would easily be annihilated.
“No more nonsense. Jiang Chen, I’ll give you three minutes to consider; hand over all your belongings, or die.”
Young master Qi unleashed his killing intent, completely locking down the trio’s auras; not giving them any chance to escape. In his mind, there was no way these three men could escape; they were like turtles in a jar, their fates in his hands.
“Is that so? If that is the case, I will give you a chance to survive. Give me all your treasures, and I’ll treat you like I did with the others, and only destroy your Qi Sea. That way, you can still keep your life. What do you think? However, I won’t give you three minutes, you only have three breaths of time. Refuse to obey me, and I will kill you.”
Jiang Chen said with an indifferent tone.
Young master Qi was startled upon hearing Jiang Chen’s words. He even began doubting his own hearing. It seemed like this guy had become addicted to ribbing, and was trying to rob just anyone he saw, ending up with him even trying to rob young master Qi!
"You're courting death!"
Young master Qi was furious. A powerful aura burst out from his body, “Let me give you one last chance. If you don’t give me everything you got, I will immediately strike you. At that point of time, after experiencing hellish torture as if you’ve entered hell, you’ll still hand me everything you got.”
“Three breaths of time has passed; you’ve lost your chance. Now I’m not longer interested in your belongings, I’m more interested in claiming your life.”
Two ice-cold beams shot out from Jiang Chen’s eyes. Toward those men who were determined to kill him, Jiang Chen would never show any mercy.
Right after Jiang Chen said that, he waved his hand, unleashing the True Dragon Palm. The blood red dragon claw ripped apart the space above young master Qi’s head.
“You’re overconfident! You dare fight against me?!”
Young master Qi was enraged. A rune could be seen hovering in his palm as he waved it, unleashing a golden seal that rippled through the space, forcefully clashing with Jiang Chen’s True Dragon Palm.
The collision of two powerful attacks ripped apart the space, and frightening energy shockwaves spread across the entire place. When Jiang Chen launched his first strike, Tyrant and Tan Lang fled from the battlefield, bringing themselves far away. Against an Eighth Grade Combat King like this young master Qi, who was also a genius of the younger generation, Tan Lang was far from strong enough. Even Tyrant, who was a Sixth Grade Combat King was no match for young master Qi. Thus, only the abnormal Jiang Chen who had just broken through to the Fifth Grade Combat King realm could do it.
The seal unleashed by young master Qi was instantly ripped apart by the True Dragon Palm, and he was knocked back a few dozen meters before he could stabilize his body. The frightening energy shockwave had even caused the ground to sink. Young master Qi felt pain, as his qi and blood was rumbling within his body. However, his mind was struck astonishment.
"How can this be possible?!"
Young master Qi exclaimed, then opened his eyes widely and stared at Jiang Chen. He couldn’t believe that what just happened was real. This guy was a Fourth Grade… no, Fifth Grade Combat King, it looked like this guy had broken through after spending three days in the Devil Realm. However, even if he was a Fifth Grade Combat King, the gap between them was still huge, and it was impossible for him to be a match for young master Qi! However, young master Qi was actually defeated in the first exchange; Jiang Chen had even more combat strength than young master Qi! This was unbelievable!
“There are many things in this world that seem impossible at first. As for your destiny, since the moment you decided to kill me, it was decided. By offending me, the Heavenly Sect will also face devastating consequences.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Hmph! You’re just a mere Fifth Grade Combat King, I refuse to believe you can defeat me!”
Young master Qi coldly harrumphed. He would never surrender to a Fifth Grade Combat King. With a sway of his body, he flew up into the sky, completely unleashing his Eighth Grade Combat King aura, which blanketed a vast area. He then spread out both palms, which were covered in a glowing azure light.
“Such a powerful shockwave! Look, that’s senior disciple Qi! And those three bastards are here as well! Senior disciple Qi is attacking them!”
“Damn it, those three bastards have finally shown themselves! I’m sure young master Qi will kill all three of those overconfident bastards!”
“Let’s go have a look. We have to get back everything that those three bastards stole from us!”
Once someone saw the battle, many people began rushing toward the battlefield. This was a grand show no one wanted to miss. All of them hated Jiang Chen and his friends, it was to the point where they wished to tear off their flesh while they were still alive. However, those who had been robbed by Jiang Chen were sure of one thing; although these three bandits were hateful, their strength wasn’t something they could go up against. In order to seek out revenge, they could only rely on young master Qi from the Heavenly Sect.
Jiang Chen stomped his feet, causing the entire ground to shake, then shot himself into the sky like an arrow leaving its bow. Today, he wanted to kill this Eighth Grade Combat King personally.
Young master Qi suddenly roared out in a furious manner. He waved both his palms forward, unleashing nine dazzling stars glowing in azure light. The nine stars were rapidly making their way toward Jiang Chen with tremendous power and momentum. Although these stars were formed entirely from Yuan energy, their power was extremely tremendous, and they carried a devastating force.
The eyes of those who came to watch the battle went wide. The mightiness of an Eighth Grade Combat King was indeed not something they could imagine. Young master Qi’s amazing skill had frightened every single one of them. They could imagine; if anyone were hit by these nine stars, they would instantly be crushed into meat paste.
“Insignificant skill. Nine Solar Fingers!”
Jiang Chen’s hair was violently fluttering in the strong wind as he clenched his fingers together and countered with the Nine Solar Fingers. The current power of the Nine Solar Fingers could no longer be compared with before. Although he still couldn’t unleash the skill at full power with his current strength, he was now able to unleash all nine fingers without any problems.
Nine huge fingers with appearance like the pillars holding the heavens up were revealed, and they were all piercing through the sky as they shot for the nine stars. A shocking scene appeared before everyone, as the nine huge seemingly indestructible fingers left nine trails in space while producing a lot of sparks along their way instantly pierced through all nine stars; shattering them to pieces.
Young master Qi’s attack was forcefully destroyed by the Nine Solar Fingers, thus he was the one to suffer the most shock. A mouthful of blood sprayed out from his mouth, and his face turned extremely pale. With just two strikes, he had been completely defeated. Anyone could tell from this situation that he was no match for this young man.
"This is a real monster."
From afar, Tyrant was unable to hold in his astonishment. Even though he was incredibly prideful, he had to admit that Jiang Chen was definitely the strongest genius he had ever met; a peerless monster.
“What?! How can this be possible?! Young master Qi isn’t a match against that bastard?”
“This can’t be possible, my eyes must be deceiving me! A Fifth Grade Combat King actually defeated young master Qi, an Eighth Grade Combat King? This is absurd!”
“Who is that man? How is he able to defeat someone three grades higher than himself?! I wonder if young master Qi can really make it through this battle.”
“I think it will be difficult. He has now suffered a serious injury. Don’t tell me this young man is going to kill young master Qi?”
“I’m sure he doesn’t have the courage to do that. The Heavenly Sect is a supreme power in the Western Region, not something a mere Combat King can afford to offend. If he really kills young master Qi, he would have to endure the wrath of the Heavenly Sect.”
Everyone were struck with astonishment, as it was a frightening scene that nearly turned their common sense over. Initially, everyone thought young master Qi would be able to kill the three bastards with ease, but what happened in front of them was a completely different story. The frightening young man in white had just severely injured young master Qi with just one strike.
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed, then once again launched an attack in a resolute manner. With a sway of his body, he arrived in front of young master Qi. He stretched out his arm and unleashed the True Dragon Palm.
