Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 676
A Lump of Golden Holy Medicine
“What did you say?”
Yan Hui was enraged. A wave of murderous aura rushed out of his body. Someone like him who was much superior to any other people there was called ‘A cat and a dog’ in front of so many people. How could he possibly stomach such an insult?
“There is no need to become furious brother Yan, let him be proud for a while. We’ll take his life sooner or later.”
Li Long said aggressively. He clenched his fists, producing some cracking sounds. His gaze was as sharp as a knife. From his point of view, if he wanted to kill Jiang Chen, it would be a piece of cake, so effortless as if crushing an ant with a finger.
Jiang Chen smiled coldly but didn’t speak. If these two really struck him, he would let them know what was pain and regret. In this world, there were some people that absolutely couldn’t be offended and Jiang Chen was one of them. Once someone offended him, the repercussion would be so severe that the offender couldn’t bear it.
Everyone could clearly feel the fading seal outside the herb garden. Seeing the person constantly moving up and down and the gradually diminishing ancient herbs, their eyes turned angrily red. Each of their palms turned into fists, producing cracking sounds consistently one after another. They were as if hungry predators that were preparing to hunt down its prey: the herbs and the bastard.
Many people really wanted to dash in to knock the hell out of the bastard, but none dared to do anything stupid before the seal was completely gone.
Nangong Wentian was stifled for so long and so many days, but today was the happiest day of his life. To a living human who had been kept in isolation and had never seen anyone for a long time, it was pretty lonely. Suddenly, he had seen so many human beings and finally had the hope that he would be leaving this bitter sea soon. The feeling that he had wasn’t understandable by ordinary people. He wasn’t able to express it in words. Therefore, Nangong Wentian was trying to express these stifled and lonely feelings on the herbs -eat the herbs once it was plucked from the ground- which would make anyone feel envious about. His way of eating the herbs could even turn a pig into a genius.
However, many cultivators were disappointed in Nangong Wentian’s actions. Mostly, they were the rogue cultivators. They knew very well their own abilities and grade. Those ancient herbs, even if Nangong Wentian didn’t keep it, they wouldn’t have a chance to go to them after the seal was gone. They could only focus on the other herbs. If they could at least get some herbs, they would feel more than satisfied.
“Little Chen, I can sense the Qi of a treasure.”
Big Yellow’s eyes sparkled and told Jiang Chen using his Divine Sense.
“Where is it?”
Jiang Chen’s facial expression was shaken. The treasure that Big Yellow could sense wasn’t going to be anything ordinary.
“It’s under this herb garden. I recalled an item called Heavenly Earth Pure Soil. This treasure is one of the ancestral five elements, which is parallel to the Heavenly Earth Pure Water. I can tell that there is a high chance of having such a holy soil below.”
Big Yellow continued, “You know that this Death Mountain is filled with death aura, as if there is no living being in it at all. However, this place is filled with a vigorous life force. You can sense the air of spring here, like a peaceful holy land. Particularly, this herb garden that was actually used to grow fine herbs and medicine. This is truly exceptional for a land. Even if it had been more than tens of thousands of years, the herbs can’t be turned into fine quality. Take a look at these herbs, they are all much sturdier and bigger than an old tree. This has to be due to the existence of the Heavenly Earth Pure Soil that caused this whole land to become like this.”
“Heavenly Earth Pure Soil.”
Jiang Chen’s pupil glittered with brilliance. Big Yellow couldn’t be wrong in his judgment about the formation of this environment. There had to be a reason for such a natural land to exist under the Death Mountain. However, he didn’t even dared to think about the relationship between this land and the Heavenly Earth Pure Soil before Big Yellow shared his thoughts. Now, it seemed that the holy soil was possibly under the herb garden.
“If this is true, it would be perfect. After I have obtained the Heavenly Earth Pure Soil, my Earth Dragon’s cultivation will be completed which will further push my level of grade to the peak of the Third Grade Combat Emperor, probably even to the Fourth Grade Combat Emperor.”
Jiang Chen tried to suppress the excitement that he felt, he didn’t want anyone other than the two of them to know about this matter. Or else, there would be a chaotic fight for the treasure. Of Jiang Chen’s Five Elements Combat Dragon Seal, he had completed the Fire Dragon Seal and Water Dragon Seal. If he could obtain the Heavenly Earth Pure Soil, his Earth Dragon would become one of his strongest techniques. And most importantly, it was his level of grade that he needed to improve the most.
Finally, the seal was gone.
“Hey! Put that herb down!”
A Seventh Grade Combat Emperor of the Skyhill School saw Nangong Wentian was keeping another herb into his Qi Sea and flew over to him, wanting to rob it back.
“Beat it sucker!”
Nangong Wentian wasn’t a nice opponent. He raised his fist and punched at him powerfully like how he punched a barbaric elephant. That disciple of the Skyhill School was sent away by the punch.
Everyone saw what happened, those who intended to strike Nangong Wentian instantly let out a cold frightened breath and changed their directions to different places of the herb garden to obtain herbs, completely discarding their thought of fighting that bastard. They were the kind of guys who gritted their teeth because they couldn’t bear Nangong Wentian’s provoking action, but they immediately got frightened and retreated after witnessing his terrifying strength.
After Nangong Wentian’s Phenomenal Boundless Technique was activated with the help of Jiang Chen, his level of grade advanced swiftly. In addition, he had eaten up so many of the herbs, his transformation was earth-shaking.
“Everyone, try not to make any attacks in the herb garden to avoid spoiling the precious herbs.”
Someone shouted. Honestly, what he said was true and effective as most of the people who wanted to fight stopped. Most of the cultivators on the scene were Combat Emperors. Once a fight was initiated, many of the herbs would be ruined. There’s almost a ten miles radius that were filled with herbs, if they were destroyed, it would be extremely wasted.
Many of them had flown into the internal part of the herb garden. There was a portion there that Nangong Wentian hadn’t searched yet but there were some ancient medicinal plant which had attracted a lot of experts from the five major powers over. The other rogue cultivators and the cultivators of the minor powers were too slow and fell behind them.
Jiang Chen and his mates rushed to Nangong Wentian the moment the seal disappeared. Without saying a word, Nangong Wentian gave Jiang Chen and Han Yan a bear-like hug. He wanted to hug Big Yellow but was afraid that he would be bitten by him.
“My friends, I can finally see you all.”
Nangong Wentian’s tears were washing his face again.
“You fool. It has been so long but you still haven’t collected all the high grade herbs.”
Big Yellow wasn’t satisfied with his actions and bit one of the herbs and swallowed it madly.
“It doesn’t matter much, don’t be overly greedy Big Yellow.”
Zuo Ling Er said while patting Big Yellow.
“Dang! What do kids know?”
Big Yellow replied while eating the herbs.
“Quickly, look! I have found some fine items but I don’t know what it is?”
Someone shouted. His hand was carrying something brilliantly gold, a lump of something golden. The medicinal aura was so strong and the Qi that was released from it was enough to tell that it was something very precious.
However, the shape of this thing was disgusting, similar to lumps of ugly-looking biscuits. If it wasn’t for its thick medicinal aura and the pleasant smell, people would treat it as an ordinary soil.
“That is a high grade medicinal plant. Quick, let me have a look.”
“Impossible, go and get it yourself if you are good enough. I will enjoy this plant first.”
That cultivator swallowed it straight away after replying to that person’s demand, and then he moved his tongue inside his mouth, licking his lips outside to taste the plant.
“The taste is a bit strange, maybe it has been here for too long, medicinal plants are usually like this.”
Nangong Wentian was also one of them who saw that cultivator swallow the entire lump of plant. He felt stunned and quickly, his face changed to a pleasant expression and laughed loudly. He was laughing so hard that he was bending forward and backward, almost tearing up.
“What are you laughing at?”
Han Yan didn’t understand.
“Keke, ignore me. Allow me to feel happy for a moment.”
Nangong Wentian put his butt on the ground and started punching the ground using his fists.
“Haha, I have also found a medicinal plant.”
“There are also herbs here, a lot of them.”
Many of them have found that lump of golden medicinal plants. Their faces were full of delight. To avoid being robbed by others, they consumed it on the spot.
“What herb is that? Nan, why didn’t you keep it just now? Master Dog will go and get some for himself.”
Big Yellow grumbled and gave an angry glance at Nangong Wentian. He turned around and rushed into the herb garden but was caught by Nangong Wentian by his tail.
“Big Yellow, those medicinal plants are abundant. If you really want them, I will produce some for you from my stool.”
Nangong Wentian said it solemnly. As he said this, Big Yellow fell to the ground with a puff. It was his head which hit the ground first. He then looked at Nangong Wentian in admiration. He felt relieved in his heart since if it wasn’t for Nangong Wentian’s reminder, the consequences would be very serious.
Jiang Chen, Han Yan, and Tyrant found out what the others had just eaten was unacceptable. Each one of them rolled their eyes wildly. The thought of them swallowing the golden plants gave them a shiver although it wasn’t cold.
Later, because Nangong Wentian was talking loudly, many people could hear what he said. They instantly threw the golden lump aside, and ran far away from it as if it was some deadly poison.
“What the hell? That thing is pulled out deliberately by him? I…blargh…”
“Damn disgusting! My… blargh… grandmother… blargh…kill… blugh….me… blargh.”
“Bastard! Blargh…I have eaten two… blargh…of them… blargh…I will… blugh…kill him… blargh.”
For a moment, people were puking everywhere. They retched so hard that tears came out. Some even lay on the ground to vomit, as if they wanted to expel their internal organs.
