Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 634
The Dragon’s Roar in His Deepest Soul
Jiang Chen walked out from the crowd. A mixture of welcoming and envious gazes were put on him. Once he walk past the mirror, the seven brothers would fly to him immediately to accept him as their personal disciple. As for whether Jiang Chen could pass the checking or not, it was something everybody didn’t consider of. To most of the people, the checking of the mirror was merely a procedure that they had to go through to become an official disciple. Who wouldn’t feel proud to be one of the disciples of Nebula Sect? Who wouldn’t feel lucky to be able to cultivate and advance in such perfect place? Thus, it was very rare for the mirror to exterminate the newly-recruited disciples, it was almost none.
“Good. Look at this guy. His forehead is larger than most of us, one look on his face can determine that he is an extraordinary genius.”
“Agree. Although he is a bit older than Zuo Ling Er, he didn’t seem to be more than twenty years old. I heard that he defeated Hu Song who took the Taboo Pill to become the Second Grade Combat Emperor by his power of Ninth Grade Combat King. He has taken the first place on the Earth ranking even before entering the sect. This is the first time I encountered this kind of event given my experience.”
“Hump! Hua Gu Yi don’t be ignorant because you have taken that little girl as your apprentice. This Jiang Chen is mine. I will make him better than the little girl.”
“Who permits that he is yours? Are you ignoring six of our brothers’ existence?”
Before Jiang Chen entered the Brilliant Mirror, the seven Feng Yun brothers started their argument again. Zuo Ling Er, a twelve-year-old Ninth Grade Combat King, was the first in their list, Jiang Chen was the number two. Now that Zuo Ling Er was taken away by the Huo Gu Yi, Jiang Chen automatically became the number one candidate.
Jiang Chen didn’t have the extra effort to care about those seniors. He was nervous, it was the most anxious moment he ever had in his entire life. Even if he was once the Greatest Saint, his heart still pounded when facing the Brilliant Mirror.
This was not a war, it was betting a life.
“Go big brother!”
Zuo Ling Er, standing beside Huo Gu Yi, cupped her fists at Jiang Chen. Not even his little sister knew about her big brother’s ulterior motive to enter the sect. He had been planning this since he fought the battle for the Zuo family. His plan was about to succeed if it wasn’t for the mirror.
“I have to risk it. I can’t be backing away now.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes shone with cold light, stepping closer to the mirror. The moment he entered and stood under the mirror, he instantly casted the Illumination Heart Sutra. Shapeless illusions was released from his body, wrapping the Brilliant Mirror entirely.
His method was concealed perfectly, no one would be able to see his movement unless they were in the illusion with him. Even Huo Gu Yi and the Feng Yun brothers couldn’t detect it.
The Brilliant Mirror shined with brilliant golden light, basking Jiang Chen with its radiance. But the light wasn’t calm, it was trembling intensely. However, no signs of attack was seen, it was just as if something uncommon was happening.
“What happened? Why do I see an aggressive movement of the light? Could it be brother Jiang is in trouble?”
“I don’t think so. If there is, the mirror should have already launched its attack like how it killed the guy earlier. Although there is some changes on the light, brother Jiang is still standing safely there. Without a doubt, this is a special case. For so long it has been checking on new disciples, it showed only two scenarios: silent and calm light; and violent and deadly light.”
“Let’s see. As long as brother Jiang can hold it for a minute, he will be fine.”
Many people felt the same way as they did. The Feng Yun brothers’ facial expression also change, their views on Jiang Chen changed. There had never been such a case that happened in the past. If he had no problems, the Brilliant Mirror wouldn’t have any aggressive actions. If he had, the mirror would attack him instantly.
“This young man has ulterior motives?”
Cong Zhong Sheng was focusing on Jiang Chen. Seeing the current scene delighted him. It seemed like he had the chance to avenge Hu Song on him.
Currently, Jiang Chen had immersed himself into the Illusion Heart Sutra, he didn’t dare to relax. He could feel the mirror attacking his line of defence and entering his deeper soul, but it was disrupted by the Shapeless Illusions. He would get pass this as long as he hold it for a minute.
A minute passed by. It was about to be over when a deafening roar rumbled from the Brilliant Mirror, sending powerful force that trembled everyone.
The huge light was shining brilliantly like the radiance directly from the hot sun. Countless light was shot out and then fell on Jiang Chen’s body. The trembling of the large mirror intensified, piercing sound like the wails created from savage beasts was heard. It shook the whole martial art arena.
“What happened? Why did the mirror react strangely?”
“Jiang Chen must have problems, he has something hidden.”
The great elders’ faces turned ugly, they had no idea what to do with such a situation. The Brilliant Mirror had been a valuable treasure of Nebula Sect, nothing as strange as this ever happened in the past. No one knew what had happened to it but there was one thing that was crystal clear. Jiang Chen had some agendas hidden deep inside him, if not, the Brilliant Mirror wouldn’t tremble this intensely.
A clear ‘Ka Ca’ sound was heard. The Shapeless Illusions was broken. The Brilliant Mirror was a Saint Weapon. Even if Jiang Chen was a powerful being, there was no way a Ninth Grade Combat King could defend himself against the attack of a Saint Weapon even if it was only a mirror.
“Dammit, not good.”
Jiang Chen’s expression changed. His heart sank into the bottom of the valley. He never thought that the mirror would be this scary. Not even his Shapeless Illusion could hold it, and it was destroyed instantly.
The moment his illusions were destroyed. The light that were released from the mirror intruded into Jiang Chen’s body like divine vipers. It drilled deep into his very soul. A wave of Qi rose dramatically inside of Jiang Chen’s heart, it was the threat of death. He had felt it before. The attack launched by the Saint Weapon was inescapable even if he used all his cultivated art. He was now trapped by the mirror, unable to move and absolutely defenceless.
At this time, Jiang Chen’s Dragon Transformation Art was activated. Its speed was a hundred times faster than the usual speed of activation. The speed could blast Jiang Chen’s body.
A long rumbling of a dragon’s roar suddenly occurred from the deepest of Jiang Chen’s soul. It came from his Dragon Transformation Art. It was a mere spell, but it had summoned the dragon’s roar. It was only heard by him, the outside world couldn’t hear it.
It was ancient, hoarse, and deep as if the roar came from an ancient dragon that existed a few centuries ago. It shook him so intensely until he lost all his senses, and then he fainted.
It disappeared after merely one roar, but the Brilliant Mirror broke, turning into many smaller pieces and fell to the ground. Jiang Chen’s forehead was covered with sweat. He had awoken the moment after the shock. Somehow, he saw the shadow of a dragon drifting in the deepest of his soul.
The length of the dragon was inestimable, he couldn’t see its end. Its body was radiating with bloody light. It was frightening, especially its eyes. It seemed like an ancient creature that had lived a long time ago until now. It was the ancestor of dragons. He could see its figure during the dragon roar. However, it disappeared immediately along with the dragon’s roar. Nevertheless, he wouldn’t forget the ancient dragon eyes, it suppressed any thoughts of blasphemy. But it was extremely familiar to Jiang Chen, he felt a sense of warm connection as if his blood was connected with the dragon. At that moment, he felt like he had become an incarnation of the dragon, soaring high into the sky.
He was looking at the broken pieces of Brilliant Mirror on the floor. This wasn’t favourable to him. Even if he wanted explain, he couldn’t do it.
The entire martial art arena became extremely silent before a wave of curiosity burst from the crowd.
“What happened? What actually happened? Why did the Brilliant Mirror broke suddenly? It has been placed there for many years, this is the first time that it is destroyed. What kind of monstrous genius is that guy?”
“There is something wrong. Jiang Chen must have something. The Brilliant Mirror is broken because of him. That guy isn’t a simple one.”
“However, if Jiang Chen has something not righteous, the Brilliant Mirror would have attacked him. But, he’s still fine and the Brilliant Mirror is destroyed instead. Could it be that Jiang Chen has ways of destroying the mirror?”
“Not possible. Even if he is capable to do so, he won’t be so foolish to do it unless he don’t want to live anymore. Plus, the mirror is a Saint Weapon! Although the light is only a projection from the mirror, it is still one. Any attack launched by it isn’t defendable by a Combat King like him. There’s also the fact that he didn’t even attempt to attack.”
This had never happened in the history of Nebula Sect. This was the first time the Brilliant Mirror broke into pieces. No one could explain what had happened. They all concluded that Jiang Chen had some hidden ulterior motives. If he hadn’t, the mirror wouldn’t break.
Cong Zhong Sheng barked the order. A group of elders of the inner sect dashed to Jiang Chen’s direction. But there were something faster than them, it was the Feng Yun brothers. They had surrounded him in the centre. Their eyes’ expression changed completely. Their intention of keeping Jiang Chen as their personal disciple changed to hostility.
“Kid, tell me. Who are you? What’s your purpose to come Nebula Sect?”
Feng Yun Yi said with a violent and cold tone. The seven of them were releasing murderous auras, preparing to beat Jiang Chen to death if he said something threatening.
Zuo Ling Er shouted and wanted to rush over but she was stopped by Hua Gu Yi.
“You big brother has some troubles. Ling Er, you shouldn’t go near him anymore.”
Zuo Ling Er had passed through the checking of the Brilliant Mirror, it proved that she hadn’t any troubles with loyalty, but Jiang Chen had.
Outside the martial art arena, big yellow was infuriated. “Damn you kid! I have told you to take things easily. You see, you are going to be finished.”
