Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 642
Stepping Into Combat Emperor Realm
“What did you say? Nan Bei Chao has a White Tiger Divine Beast?”
After hearing the four words ‘White Tiger Divine Beast’, Big Yellow exclaimed in shock.
“The White Tiger is one of the five Divine Beast. Its bloodline is above mine and is comparable to a True Dragon. It’s rare, the king of millions of demons and a fine race. Let's not talk about its cultivation level, even a newborn White Tiger will never submit to humans.
Big Yellow was shocked because he knew very well the quality of Divine Beasts, they were unparalleled to any ordinary or special demons. They could become friends with humans but they will never be subdued. For instance, the relationship between Big Yellow and Jiang Chen was friendship and brotherhood, it wasn’t a a master and servant relationship.
If Jiang Chen wanted Big Yellow to submit to him from the very beginning, they wouldn’t last until today. This was also the reason of his shock. The bloodline of the White Tiger was the most precious of all. How could a Third Grade Minor Saint Divine Beast submit itself to a First Grade Combat Emperor? It was just impossible.
“Nan Bei Chao possessed the body of a Celestial Soul, he is the soul’s reincarnation, he can’t be viewed like an ordinary human. Also, his relationship with the White Tiger might be like ours. At any rate, his appearance in Mysterious Domain certainly won’t bring peace.”
Jiang Chen said. While digging out the background of Nan Bei Chao, his heart turned sour because Nan Bei Chao wouldn’t have existed if not for him. If it wasn’t for him unsealing the heavens with his sword, the Celestial Soul wouldn’t have descended, and Nan Bei Chao wouldn’t exist.
“I have never thought that the White Tiger existed in the Divine Continent.”
Big Yellow murmured.
“Since the Celestial World’s gate was slashed opened, the Divine Continent now isn’t the same as before. Even a Saint has a chance to become a Celestial Being. Even your kind, the Dragon-Horse, exists. So, the existence of the White Tiger doesn’t surprise me.”
Jiang Chen smiled. He could already sense the tremendous changes that would happen in this world in the future. In his previous life, the Divine Continent was merely an isolated small world and the gates to the Celestial World was closed. The resources and knowledge in that era were deficient, the number of geniuses weren’t many. Jiang Chen, as the Greatest Saint of that era hadn’t even seen a Divine Beast, but he had an abnormal Divine Beast at his side now.
Big Yellow chuckled.
“Since we are the enemies of the White Tiger, I won’t show mercy. At that time we’ll slaughter it, you’ll swallow its blood essence and bloodline, then I’ll consume its demon soul. Wakaka…this is really exciting.”
Big Yellow laughed while dividing the parts of the White Tiger to the both of them. He knew Jiang Chen had an extraordinary skill, he could absorb the supernatural powers of any demons, and the terrifying powers of the White Tiger Divine Beast would be good for him. As for the demon soul of the White Tiger, Big Yellow would consume it to obtain great benefits.
Jiang Chen raised his leg and it landed on Big Yellow’s head, “Please wake up, it is a Third Grade Minor Saint and you’re merely a Ninth Grade Demon King.”
It made Big Yellow speechless. It would only be a dream to consume a Third Grade Minor Saint’s demon soul with a Ninth Grade Demon King's power.
“It’s just a matter of time. Dare to look down on master dog. I’ll retire now.”
Big Yellow shook his head, and ran to bed, snoring in one of the rooms in the compound. Jiang Chen smirked after seeing Big Yellow. It was a good sign that Big Yellow wanted to sleep. Now, Big Yellow felt the pressure from Nan Bei Chao and the White Tiger, and also Jiang Chen’s advancement to the Combat Emperor realm after consuming the Emperor Pill. This kind of pressure made him sleepy, and without a doubt, he would turn into a Demon Emperor after he awoke.
This was a strange, and the most abnormal way to advance one’s level, making many people jealous.
Now that Big Yellow went to sleep, Jiang Chen didn’t want to waste any more time, and took out the Emperor Pill to refine it.
“With this pill, I can finally push my grade to the Combat Emperor realm. The White Tiger’s demon aura in Nebula Kidd’s body is too great. If it wasn’t for its aid, I won’t be able to step into the Combat Emperor realm even with this pill given my pool of energy. Furthermore, these two will certainly enhance my foundation of energy. It is undeniably perfect.”
Jiang Chen revealed a smirk. The matter of the Brilliant Mirror had brought him something unexpectedly good. He wouldn’t attempt to advance further into Combat Emperor realm if he didn’t acquire the White Tiger’s devil arua, even with the aid of the Emperor Pill.
The Emperor Pill was precious and rare because it was very difficult to concoct. It was already very generous of Nebula Sect to offer three Emperor Pills as rewards. However, there was a limit for this pill: it was restricted to only Combat Kings, it had no effects on Combat Emperors.
Jiang Chen was now a peak Ninth Grade Combat King, allowing him maximize the effects of the pill. With the effect of the pill, he could easily condense one thousand dragon marks without a problem.
Without hesitation, Jiang Chen directly swallowed the Emperor Pill, and started casting the Dragon Transformation skill to refine it.
He didn’t rush the process of his advancement. Anyway, he had a suitable place for refining, and no one would dare to come over and disturb him after the incident in the Martial Art Arena.
The Emperor Pill was strengthening his pool of energy. Stepping into the Combat Emperor realm would also allow him to have the same amount of pool of energy as Combat Emperors.
Two days had already passed, Jiang Chen was still refining in seclusion, while Big Yellow was still in bed. In the inner sect, the disciples had been conversing about Jiang Chen beating up the chief steward amongst themselves. This was also happening in the other departments of the sect, making the entire sect informed about the major incident. Most of the core disciples were told that Jiang Chen had a monstrous talent, they wanted to see his prowess in person. Some even declared to have a battle with Jiang Chen, to teach him a lesson. It was the core disciples after all, there were numerous geniuses in it, and you can’t find one who wasn’t proud and arrogant about themselves.
In the outer and inner sect, Jiang Chen had become most of the disciples’ idol. They worshipped him, and hoped that one day, they would also become as tyrannical as him. If not, their lives would be in vain. Since they were men, and men needed a domineering aura.
There was someone who felt miserable about his life, and was very unhappy. The chief steward just stayed in his compound in these past two days, not making even a step out of his room, and had ignored all the matters of the inner sect within this period time.
It was shameful, he truly didn’t have the courage to see anyone, and he had no idea where he should put his disgraceful face. His injuries had fully recovered. Since he was a Third Grade Combat Emperor, his speed of recovery was faster, but the injury in his heart didn't recover as fast.
He was infuriated and had broken all the decorations in his room. When he thought of the name ‘Jiang Chen,’ he couldn’t help gritting his teeth. Nonetheless, he knew very well that he wouldn’t have the chance to take revenge on Jiang Chen anymore. Jiang Chen had obtained the Emperor Pill, and would advance to the Combat Emperor realm in no time. Then, he would become a core disciple, which made his wish of vengeance impossible. If his stifled feeling was not released, it would cause him internal injuries.
When he was about to explode again, a person came in, he wasn’t anyone but Hu Song. Besides his missing arm, all of his other injuries had already recovered.
“Chief Steward, you seem very angry.”
Hu Song saw the condition of the room and spoke.
“What did you came here for? I thought you have already gone to register to become a core disciple? It was because of you that I have lost my face and don’t even have the courage to walk out of this door anymore.”
Cong Zhong Sheng said harshly, when he thought about how he was beaten up by Jiang Chen like a dog, he felt an urge to spurt blood. This was all because of Hu Song. If it wasn’t for him, he wouldn’t offend Jiang Chen.
The chief steward had become very timid after the fight. He didn’t dare to speak, and complain to the upper ranks when he was beaten up by a new disciple, since that would only bring endless shame to himself. As a dignified chief steward, he was beaten up like that, how could he find the courage to complain to the upper ranks? Wouldn’t he need to find to a hole to put his head in like an ostrich while walking out of the room?
“Chief Steward, can you swallow your dissatisfaction?”
Hu Song said it coldly.
“I can’t, but so what? My face has been put to shame profusely. That man is a freak of nature. A genius like him will certainly be nurtured greatly by the sect. I advise you not to offend him in the future.”
Cong Zhong Sheng waved his hand in disapproval. Although Jiang Chen had just recently arrived in Nebula Sect, his power was too great and too hard to go against.
“If our anguish can’t be released, we won’t be able to raise up our head in our entire life. If someone like Jiang Chen grows to a certain extent, do you think we’ll still have a status in the sect?”
Hu Song said coldly.
“What are you going to do?”
Cong Zhong Sheng asked. He wanted to have his revenge even more badly than Hu Song, but he knew that he couldn’t afford to do that.
“It doesn’t require us to do it. You should know of Man Hong of the core disciples right?”
Hu Song smiled a little.
“You mean that mad man, Man Hong? That man is already a Fourth Grade Combat Emperor, and has a terrifying combat strength. The people who fought him were crippled, because his technique is very cruel.”
Cong Zhong Sheng was the chief steward after all, that’s why he knew some powerful figures.
“That’s right, my relationship with brother Man Hong is good. You and I will offer him some benefits, and let him avenge us. If Jiang Chen offends him, we can already imagine what will happen next.”
Hu Song revealed an evil smile.
“Will this work?”
Cong Zhong Sheng frowned.
“If it is the others, it won’t work, but it is Man Hong. He is the most arrogant man. After knowing about Jiang Chen, he has declared that he will wait for Jiang Chen to become a core disciple, and make him walk in the sect with his knees, which is favourable for us. Jiang Chen is powerful, but he is certainly no match for Man Hong.”
Hu Song smiled with confidence.
“ALRIGHT! Damn Jiang Chen! I want to let him know that even if he is a genius, he won’t be able to continue his arrogance in Nebula Sect.”
Cong Zhong Sheng said while gritting his teeth.
