Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 636
Make a Trade
Jiang Chen didn’t answer Nebula Kidd’s question, but instead he scanned the man’s body from top to bottom a few times. A while later, he turned his gaze away and said, “You are injured, a serious internal injury.”
As soon as his voice faded, a wave of Qi suddenly blasted from Nebula Kidd’s body. Some surplus Qi touched Jiang Chen, sending him flying, hitting the solid wall of the main hall.
Jiang Chen coughed slightly, drops of blood spilled out of his mouth. The power of a Fourth Grade Minor Saint wasn’t defendable by a mere Combat King, even if it wasn’t a direct hit. However, he wasn't worried in the slightest about the minor injury that he just gotten. He could easily heal it using the Dragon Transformation skill. The thing that surprised him the most was Nebula Kidd’s sudden and big reaction. Although Jiang Chen had seen through his injuries, as a Minor-Saint-Grade master, his disposition shouldn’t be this unsteady. His guess seemed to have touched Nebula Kidd’s tender spot.
“You know that I’m injured?”
Nebula Kidd’s gaze were as sharp as a blade, locking on Jiang Chen’s Qi. Nobody knew about his injuries, not even his opponent. That battle had certainly left a serious wound on his body. However, he was able to conceal it well that not even Hua Gu Yi found out about it. But Jiang Chen, a mere Ninth Grade Combat King, had seen through him. There were only two possibilities. First, Jiang Chen was overly divine that he had the ability to see through everything. Second, Jiang Chen had known about his injury all this while.
“You are wounded by an enormous demon. There is still a wisp of a demon’s aura inside you, and you can’t get it out. You are currently using your combat force to suppress it, but it won’t totally heal it. Your injury will only get worse over time.”
Jiang Chen ignored Nebula Kidd’s cold expression and continued his statement. His eyesight could see through that Nebula Kidd was badly injured in an instant. It made him think of the bright light sword that he saw in Heavenly Devil Palace. His injuries must have been left after the battle. He reaffirmed that that man was Nebula Kidd and the fragment of the Heavenly Saint Sword was under his possession.
Jiang Chen was calm and wise when facing difficulties. After knowing Nebula Kidd’s secret, he discerned his dreadful expression, giving him a great opportunity. Since his identity had been exposed, he needed to think of another way to retrieve his item. It wasn’t necessary to oppose Nebula Kidd as his cultivation wasn't enough for that.
“What did you just say?!”
Nebula Kidd was completely shocked. Even with the disposition of a Minor Saint, he couldn’t take it easy. A wave of cold and chilling murderous aura was released from his body, wrapping all over Jiang Chen. He was surprised not only because Jiang Chen could detect his injury but he could also see how serious it is, in just a glance. The wisp of demon aura was tangled on his body, not even him could get rid of it. Its existence in his body was a serious threat to his recovery, making it harder for him to recover.
“Jiang Chen, what’s your relationship with the White Tiger and that mysterious youth? And what’s your purpose in coming to Nebula Sect?”
Nebula Kidd demanded.
“White Tiger? Mysterious youth?”
Jiang Chen was stunned, not knowing what Nebula Kidd was talking about. Nevertheless, his wisdom quickly guessed the connection between these two people and his injury.
“You aren’t together with them?”
Nebula Kidd’s murderous aura reduced. A person’s eye wouldn’t lie. When he raised the question about the White Tiger and the mysterious young man, Jiang Chen froze momentarily. That was enough to indicate that he wasn’t an ally of the two.
In other words, Jiang Chen didn’t know about his injury before this. He only knew it after he had seen him. Nebula Kidd was amazed once again. The young man before him was too calm. Jiang Chen didn’t feel nervous or affected by his murderous aura, there was no fear in his eyes which meant that he wasn’t afraid of him at all.
“I have no idea who you are talking about. But, I know how to heal your wound.”
Jiang Chen said.
“What? You said you can heal my wound? Why should I believe you? And you, breaking the Brilliant Mirror indicated that you have some hidden motives. You better tell me your background and your purpose of coming in my sect, or else I will kill you.”
Nebula Kidd’s tone was cold, but he had lowered his guard after he found out that Jiang Chen wasn’t related to the White Tiger and that mysterious youth.
“Hmm. There’s no harm in telling you anyway. My only purpose in coming here is because of your sword.”
Jiang Chen said. His eyes released a forceful aura that came from the depths of his soul. This invisible suppression made Nebula Kidd feel astonished once again. What is the origin of this young man? Why does he have such incisive eyes?
“My Nebula Sword?”
Nebula Kidd sounded unfriendly. No one had ever tried to covet his sword. He had spent a lot of effort and time to forge the Nebula Sword. Now, the fragment of the Heavenly Saint Sword had already been fused in his sword and it was inseparable.
“Your Nebula Sword has a fragment of the Heavenly Saint Sword, that isn’t yours. It’s mine and I will take it back.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes glittered with a dazzling light. A powerful wave of Qi was released from his soul. With each step that he took, he inched closer to Nebula Kidd which forced Kidd to move back irresistibly.
“You, what did you say? What are you?!”
Nebula Kidd was petrified. The news that he acquired the fragment of the Heavenly Saint Sword had been spread to many people, so it wasn’t a secret anymore. He wasn’t surprised that this young man knew about it, but he still unreasonably feared him.
“Who am I? I’m Jiang Chen. I was the one who slashed open the heavens, the Greatest Saint who fell in the Saint’s Cliff a hundred years ago. I’m the reincarnation of myself. What right do you have to possess the Heavenly Saint Sword?”
Jiang Chen barked with a strong tone. All the hidden Saint aura in his body were released. Nebula Kidd felt that he was facing the Greatest Saint. His opponent should supposedly be weaker than him by a hundred or thousand times, but he felt intimidated from the aura coming from this young man. It sounded absurd, wasn’t it?
Nebula Kidd exclaimed. Only an unprecedented and shocking news could make him, a Fourth Grade Minor Saint, shiver and cause him to exclaim. His eyes were staring intently on Jiang Chen, his impression of him now was mixed with surprise and fear.
No way, this is impossible! The Greatest Saint had already died a long time ago. This kid was bullshitting.
However, why could he feel the Saint aura coming directly from Jiang Chen’s soul? Jiang Chen’s composure while facing him and the profound expression in his eye should never exist in a teenager. Could he really be the reincarnation of the Greatest Saint?
Now that he recalled, the Greatest Saint was also called Jiang Chen. Many knew of his alias but not his real name. He heard his real name from someone else by chance last time.
The Greatest Saint possessed the power to slash a rift in the heavens and the power to reincarnate. Which Nebula Kidd didn’t feel that this was strange as this matched his knowledge.
Nonetheless, Nebula Kidd still didn’t believe it.
“How would you make me believe you?”
He couldn’t measure this young man.
“Draw out your Nebula Sword.”
Jiang Chen said with a calm voice.
To test Jiang Chen’s identity, he drew his Nebula Sword out. He wasn’t afraid that Jiang Chen would take it away. Even if the young man was right, even if he was the reincarnation of the Greatest Saint, he is merely a Ninth Grade Combat King now, he could kill by just using his fingers.
The long sword was resplendent, it was as thin as cicada’s wings, and was illuminating a plain blue light. Anyone could tell that this was a treasured sword with just a single glance. This was the Nebula Sword, the weapon of Nebula Kidd’s life force. Jiang Chen’s gaze fell on the sword, it was only a glance but...
the initially silent Nebula Sword turned aggressive all of a sudden, it trembled intensely and created a piercing buzzing sound, as though it had found its true owner.
“How could this happen?!”
Nebula Kidd was shocked once again. He had never encountered such a situation. He had already fused the fragment of the Heavenly Saint Sword into his sword. His Nebula Sword had already become a part of him, but it still reacted in a friendly way to a stranger.
“Nebula Kidd. Did you see it clearly? You thought you can completely fuse the fragment of the Heavenly Saint Sword into your sword? Absolutely absurd! Under the heavens, only I, Jiang Chen, have the power to wield the Heavenly Saint Sword. Your Nebula Sword will become my weapon if I so willed it.”
Jiang Chen’s facial expression was cold as if he was sticking a sharp sword at Nebula Kidd’s heart using his words.
“You? You are the reincarnation of the Greatest Saint?”
Nebula Kidd had already found his answer to that. A sense of respect was added into his eyes. It was a sincere respect that he wanted to give to Jiang Chen. He now believed what the young had said. His Nebula Sword was the best proof of it because it wouldn’t lie.
“You don’t have to worry, I won’t take your sword away for now.”
Jiang Chen waved his hand, stopping his connection with the Heavenly Saint Sword, letting the Nebula Sword return to its original state.
“I will make a trade with you.”
Jiang Chen said. This was the first time that he revealed his true identity. This was also the first time that he told someone his secret, but he had his own reasons for doing so. In addition, he wouldn’t steal the Nebula Sword, Nebula Kidd would certainly kill him if he forced him to. That would be a nonsensical and worthless sacrifice. Also, he wasn’t in need of the fragment of the Heavenly Saint Sword for now. He only needed to determine the whereabouts of it. Later on, he would continue to find the other fragments of the Heavenly Saint Sword. He would rather establish a friendly relationship with Nebula Kidd instead of starting a conflict. It sounded quite good to settle down and build his own path in Nebula Sect.
