Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 746
Unusual Change in the Marriage
In an arch bridge outside the bamboo mangrove there was a still stream below it. The surface of the water was clear. Borrowing the moonlight, Rainbow-colored fishes could be seen. On the arch bridge were two silhouettes—a male and a female. The male was unusually handsome and carried the domineering aura of the world's greatest conqueror. The female was dazzlingly beautiful and elegant. Her beauty was enough to overthrow all the men of the city.
“Little Chen, do you wish to marry me?”
Wu Ningzhu asked suddenly.
Jiang Chen nodded. He had no doubts about it. This was his woman, he wouldn’t let anyone else marry her aside from him.
“But, if we get married three days later, how about Xiao Yu?”
Wu Ningzhu understood that Yan Chenyu also played an important role in Jiang Chen’s heart. She was irreplaceable.
“This is my promise to you. I also have my promise to Yan Chenyu. You two are my women.”
Jiang Chen said. Whether it was Wu Ningzhu or Yan Chenyu, Jiang Chen wouldn’t neglect or show biased treatment to either of them.
Three days later, Dan King County was full of colorful hangings and lanterns, making today the most bustling day ever. However, it’s not just in Dan King County, the entire Dan Yuan City was also full of decorative streamers that excluded a very joyous atmosphere. After all, today was the big day of Dan King’s daughter and everyone in the city would celebrate it joyously. For all these years, under the leadership of Dan King, the economy of the city had become prosperous. A lot of people here had obtained great benefits and had lived a great life. Hence, Dan King had occupied a high and respected place in their hearts—he had become a king to them.
In other words, Dan King was the hundred-percent true ruler of the city.
Currently, a tall stage had been built in Dan King County. Dragons and phoenixes were carved on the pillars of the stage while red clothes were used to decorate the entire stage. Obviously, the stage would held the venue of the marriage.
Jiang Chen was wearing a red robe. A simple twitch of his vigorous tiger-like eyes had a domineering aura that seemed able to subdue anyone. Beside him were Guo Shao Fei and Nangong Wentian. They too were dressed in festival robe. Initially, Big Yellow had picked a nice clothe to wear but was quickly pulled down by Guo Shao Fei and Nangong Wentian. They couldn’t hold their laughter while seeing Big Yellow wearing red clothes because it was just too funny.
Nangong Wentian was observing the sun which was about to reach above his head and smiled to Jiang Chen. “Little Chen, it’s about time. We should head over there now.”
“Haha! Congratulations Junior Jiang. Unfortunately, none of the disciples from Nebula Sect had come. According to the culture, master should have made the trip to come here.”
Guo Shao Fei congratulated Jiang Chen with his fists but felt slightly sorry because Dan King didn’t invite any people from Nebula Sect to come for Jiang Chen and Wu Ningzhu’s big day.
“Master Dog’s presence is important enough, why should we need other people to join?”
Big Yellow was all-over himself. However, this dog really weighed a lot in Jiang Chen’s heart.
“Haha! Let’s go, don’t let the bride lose her patience in waiting for you.”
Guo Shao Fei laughed, and afterwards, they left their residing area and went straight to the venue of marriage. When they reached the venue, Dan King had already sat on the stage. He was wearing his usual dan robe that was not any kind of clothes that people could wear during a festive day. On the other hand, his Qi was stronger than three days before. His level of grade had reached the peak of Fifth Grade Minor Saint—one more step to reach the sixth grade. Obviously, this was the effect of Nine Solar Lightning-Dragon pill.
There were also elders of Minor Saint grade sitting behind Dan King. There were the powerful Minor Saints. They would always receive high respect and status wherever they went. Thus, they were qualified to sit together with Dan King.
Jiang Chen made a leap on the stage and greeted Dan King and the other elders with his fists.
Dan King gave a praise.
“The young master is really a *dragon amongst the people. The aura of a great man is displayed in each of your action. With such composure and luck, your future is truly unimaginable.”
Elder Lu couldn’t help but praise Jiang Chen, while the other Minor Saints also nodded in approval. Jiang Chen had indeed occupied a high position in their hearts. If it wasn’t for the age gap, they would have called Jiang Chen as ‘senior.’
At this instant, a wonderful sound was heard. A girl that looked like an immortal beauty was dressed in a wedding dress. With the help of a few beautiful girls, she stepped into the air and landed slowly on the stage, and then stood opposite of Jiang Chen. This beauty was Wu Ningzhu—the center of attention today.
Jiang Chen had to admire her beauty while looking at her up close. Her prettiness was indeed unique and incomparable.
Wu Ningzhu smiled sweetly. She had never thought that this day would come. Moreover, she felt very satisfied about the man in front of her.
“Young master, young lady, the time is up. Begin to worship the heaven and earth.”
Elder Lu stood up from his seat and came beside the two and said.
Jiang Chen and Wu Ningzhu nodded.
“Who allowed you all to hold a marriage here?!”
At this moment, a bellow fell from the sky. The voice was deep and it echoed uncontrollably in the sky above Dan King County. Dan King’s facial expression changed. He was already a Fifth Grade Minor Saint but the owner of the voice was obviously stronger than him.
The next moment, an elder dressed in grey robe appeared above the sky. He stood high in the air while looking down at the event that was happening below. He seemed to be only sixty or seventy years old but he was highly spirited. His scorching hot eyes made people not dare to look at him directly.
In addition to his emergence, a shapeless pressure was released from his body. The wave of energy alone was stronger than Dan King’s!
Jiang Chen’s gaze shifted to this elder and couldn’t help but frown. With just a single look, he was able to discern that this man is a Seventh Grade Minor Saint. Such powerful a cultivator would be rarely seen in the eight domains.
“Who are you, elder? Today is the great day of Dan King County, why did elder want to stop us?”
Dan King greeted the elder with his fists. Although Dan King had a very prestigious status, his counterpart was a powerful Seventh Grade Minor Saint after all, and thus Dan King had to be courteous in his words.
“Dammit! Where did this old man with knuckle sandwiches come from?”
Big Yellow said with grievance. He could sense that this elder didn’t come with good intention. It seemed like Jiang Chen and Wu Ningzhu’s big day was going to be destroyed.
The elder made a cold humph. He didn’t sound polite to Dan King at all, he directly shifted his gaze to Wu Ningzhu. After a thorough observation, he nodded before shifting his gaze to Jiang Chen with a cold pair of eyes.
“A yellow-skinned boy that came out of nowhere dares to marry people of the Gu Family? You really don’t know what death is.”
The elder said with coldness.
When the name ‘Gu Family’ was mentioned, the facial expression of Dan King and a few Minor Saint elders suddenly changed. Although they weren’t from the Pure Land, their knowledge about that place was very clear. This elder actually came from the Gu Family. This family wasn’t something that Dan King County could compare with.
However, they were puzzled about the relation Wu Ningzhu had with the Gu Family.
“I am elder Gu Mu. Greetings, young lady.”
The elder slightly bowed at Wu Ningzhu and addressed her as ‘young lady.’
Dan King exclaimed immediately. The people on the scene couldn’t calm down. Is Wu Ningzhu a young lady from the Gu Family? That was totally absurd.
Meanwhile, Jiang Chen didn’t speak a word. It was obvious that Gu Mu came here solely for Wu Ningzhu. He must have sensed Wu Ningzhu’s bloodline.
“Where’s my mother?”
Wu Ningzhu asked.
“Young lady can set your mind at ease. Gu Lan is fine. My purpose of coming here today is to bring young lady back to our family. How can a bloodline of our Gu Family stay outside the family?”
Gu Mu said.
The plain words and tone he used didn’t make much of an impact on the others, but Jiang Chen furrowed his eyebrows. Being addressed as ‘young lady’ was enough to prove that Wu Ningzhu had a very special status in the Gu Family. She was probably the granddaughter of the patriarch. Thus, Gu Mu didn’t dare to call Wu Ningzhu’s real name.
“That year, you people forcefully separated my mom and dad, abandoning me. Now you want me to return to the family. I don’t value such invitation. I am the daughter of Dan King now and today is my wedding. I hope that you won’t interrupt. I will go to the Gu Family sooner or later because I want to find my mom personally.”
Wu Ningzhu’s tone didn’t sound in any way polite. She only had hate towards the Gu Family.
“Our family’s bloodline is very prestigious. How can young lady marry an ordinary man? Your marriage can only be decided in the family. Young lady, follow me and return to the family.”
Gu Mu said.
“I am not related to the Gu Family. What right do you all have to decide my marriage? Let me tell you, I will never marry anyone besides Jiang Chen!”
Wu Ningzhu became infuriated.
“In that case, I will kill this kid.”
Gu Mu shifted his gaze at Jiang Chen.
Wu Ningzhu raged.
“If young lady agrees to follow me back to the family, I will show him mercy. Besides, don’t you want to see your real mother? The blood of the Gu Family is flowing within you, and thus, you belong to the family.”
Gu Mu said with a plain tone.
Wu Ningzhu wanted to say something but was stopped by Jiang Chen.
“Sister Ning, follow him back. You have the bloodline of the Gu Family, so, they won’t do anything to you. Also, if you want to find your mom, you also have to go there sooner or later. As for our marriage, I will personally go there for you.”
Jiang Chen said. He understood very clearly how the people of the Gu Family worked. Since they had already found Wu Ningzhu, they would definitely bring her back. No one would be able to stop them.
“Fine. I will go to the family to see how my mom has been living all these years.”
Wu Ningzhu nodded. As for the possible danger in the Family, she didn’t consider any of that because all she wanted to do was to find her mother. If this family really wanted to endanger their lives, they would have already killed her and her dad—Wu Tianyang—at Wu Yang City before.
*dragon among the people – A very outstanding person among the group of his peers.
