Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 798
The entire atmosphere turned heavy immediately after the Peacock King appeared. Great Master Tian Hou could feel the pressure causing his Qi to diminish. Although the Great Lightning Tune Temple dominated the Western Domain and remained a saint land of Buddha Sect, they wouldn’t dare to provoke the demon race. Even the other seven families of the Pure Land was unwilling to offend them.
The Demon Race is one of the eight races in the Pure Land. The natural disposition of the Demon Race were ruthless and willfulness. It would be hard for enemies of the Demon Race to take advantage of them.
Jiang Chen’s attention was shifted to the Peacock King. A hundred years ago when he dominated the world, he knew a rare genius in the Demon Race, but at that time, he was merely a Minor Demon Saint expert. With his cultivation back then, he was not qualified to fight Jiang Chen. Today, the Peacock King had already become a Great Saint after a hundred years. A very powerful Fourth Grade Great Saint, a level above Tian Hou.
Also, Peacock King belonged to the group of rare beasts. He was a top demon in his race and held an important position. It would be very difficult to find one peer who had the same strength as him. Even though the Western Domain was the territory of the Great Lightning Tune Temple, they wouldn’t dare to act arrogantly in front of him.
Peacock King had emerged at the critical moment and fearlessly injured one of the Buddhas. Clearly, it was to protect Big Yellow. Jiang Chen knew this because he didn’t have any connection with the Demon Race. It had to be the fact that Big Yellow possessed the physique of the dragon-horse, a true bloodline of divine beast. As such, the Demon Race couldn’t put away their eyes from him.
“Peacock King, are your hands too long that you have to interfere with the matters in Western Domain?”
Great Master Tian Hou said with some anger.
Peacock King was so arrogant that he ignored Great Master Tian Hou. He treated him as air and his words as fart. His gaze shifted to Big Yellow. Then, he swayed, and appeared before him. Rainbow-colored lights shot out from his eyes, encompassing Big Yellow’s entire body. Big Yellow tried to break free from it but it was pointless.
He stopped struggling since it was pointless anyway. Since he didn’t feel any hostile intent from the Peacock King, adding to the fact that this incredible man had just ripped off one of their opponent's arms, it went without saying that he was on their side.
Jiang Chen didn’t stop Peacock King. He knew that the Peacock King was just confirming Big Yellow’s bloodline. Once he confirmed Big Yellow’s bloodline, not only would he not harm Big Yellow, he would be joyful instead.
Gifted divine beasts were said to be already extinct in this world a long time ago. Perhaps one could only meet these beings when one reached the supreme state. The Demon Race had never seen a true divine beast’s fresh blood over so many years in Divine Continent. It would be more than great to have a few divine beasts existing in the Divine Continent. The Demon Race would flourish if they could bring a divine beast back for nurturing. Today, the Peacock King’s personal trip here today indicated the importance of the bloodline of a divine beast.
The Peacock King’s eyes turned brighter. He had already felt the divine beast bloodline of Big Yellow. His face was full of joy that couldn’t be put into words.
Peacock King kept the rainbow light. He was supposed to be feeling joyful but suddenly, he slapped his palm on Big Yellow’s head, creating a clanking sound.
“Dammit! Why did you slap me?”
Big Yellow glared at the Peacock King. ‘Does this guy have any head injuries? Doesn’t he know that hitting someone else’s head during the first meeting isn’t a good thing?’
“Son of b*tch, your damn body is the body of a dragon-horse but your face is of a dog. Truly unacceptable.”
Jiang Chen, Tyrant and Yan Chenyu couldn’t help but laugh. Big Yellow could not express his temper after being hit on the head, they all thought that there is finally someone else who could tame Big Yellow now. It was obvious that the Peacock King only hit Big Yellow lightly, otherwise, given his cultivation grade, he would have smash Big Yellow’s head into meat paste with his normal strength. Peacock King was a little disappointed with Big Yellow’s looks but overall, he was overjoyed.
“So that my look can disguise my bloodline.”
Big Yellow quickly flew a distance away from Peacock King.
“En, not bad. Your reaction is quite fast and your head is quite hard. You deserve to be called a divine beast. You can’t disguise your true bloodline with whatever face you might have. Haha! My Demon Race is going to flourish.”
Peacock King laughed.
After a while, Peacock King turned and looked at those few Buddhas and cursed, “Bald donkeys, what’s wrong with the Great Lightning Tune Temple? You all dare to kill a genius of the Demon Race? Are you declaring war on us?”
“Peacock King, don’t get all over yourself. This isn’t your territory. It’s better if you don’t interfere with the matters of the Great Lightning Tune Temple.”
Great Master Tian Hou was irritated. He was a respected Buddha but was scolded and called a bald donkey. How could he accept that?
“Haha! Old bald donkey. Who do you think you are? I would have already slapped you to death if I wasn’t giving your temple face. When I, Peacock King, decided to interfere, I would interfere at all costs. Today, I am bringing this dog back. You can call your abbot for help and see whether he can stop me.”
Peacock King was too arrogant, Great Lightning Tune Temple was not qualified to have his respect.
Great Master Tian Hou’s tongue was tied but didn’t show a tiny bit of temper. He couldn’t oppose Peacock King directly. Everyone knew about his ruthlessness. If the Peacock King was offended, he would be killed for sure without a solid reason.
“You? You should feel lucky that this is the Western Domain. If this is somewhere else, I would just straightaway blow all of your heads up if you try to kill any of the geniuses of my race.”
Peacock King didn’t leave any courtesy in his warning.
Big Yellow laughed with his usual laugh, while bouncing up and down in the void. He was continuously sticking out his tongue against the senior monks of the Great Lightning Tune Temple and almost twist his backside at them.
The monk’s faces were green and pale. Their lips turned purple. They were on the verge of exploding but they had to bear it, the last thing that they wanted to do was to make the Demon Race their enemy. The Demon Race had a strong backup behind them, which made them undeniably stronger than the Great Lightning Tune Temple. Besides, this Peacock King was enough to give them a huge headache, let alone those experts in the Pure Land.
Great Master Tian Hou shook his head and said to the Peacock King, “Peacock King, the genius of your race is still in good condition. I did not hurt him one bit, but you have ripped off one the arm of our Great Saints instead. You have taken all the advantage. Bring this dog and leave now. Leave the rest of the matters to us. I hope that the Demon Race won’t interfere with them.”
“No way! Jiang Chen is my sworn brother. His matter is my matter. Peacock King, I want you to attack immediately, kill all of these bald donkeys, or else, I won’t join your Demon Race.”
Big Yellow said. He was truly a master in irrationality and frenzy. He wouldn’t let them go even if they were in control of the situation. The few senior monks couldn’t hold the irritation and anger any longer, the temperature in their blood was rising.
“Son of b*tch, I never thought that you are more ruthless than me. Hmmm. This is the Western Domain, it is not a good place to kill.”
Peacock King rolled his eyes when Big Yellow used him to threaten them.
“Are you killing them or not? If you don’t, I won’t join the Demon Race.”
Big Yellow sounded forceful.
“You dare to threaten me? There isn’t anyone in the world who dares to threaten me. Do you know what the consequences would be if you threaten me?”
Peacock King widened his eyes, but when he saw that Big Yellow completely ignored him, he changed his tone. “Fine. You certainly have an attitude, but I like it.”
Jiang Chen and Tyrant almost spurted out blood. Today, they had witnessed these two weirdos. Peacock King was the big weirdo and Big Yellow was the small weirdo.
“Peacock King, you want to attack us in Western Domain?”
Great Master Tian Hou bellowed.
“He threatened me. So, I will eliminate all of you and see what the Great Lightning Tune Temple would do.”
Peacock King was a person who couldn’t bear threats, so he would certainly pulverize all of these senior monks.
At this time, Great Master Ran Feng moved a step forward and said to Peacock King, “Peacock King, I think it’s better to not aggravate the situation as it won’t do any good to them or us.”
“Since Great Master Ran Feng said that, then forget it. The few of you got lucky this time.”
Big Yellow said. As a matter of fact, he knew very well that if Peacock King really killed these few senior monks, the Great Lightning Tune Temple would certainly not let them go. Plus, Jiang Chen’s cultivation was still too weak. It wouldn’t bring any advantage to them either. Now that Jiang Chen’s conflict had been settled, it didn’t matter to him if these monks would live or die.
“Alright. I would take Great Master Ran Feng’s advice. Ancestor Greenlotus is the Buddha I respect the most. He is the cultivator of true greatness, unlike the Great Lightning Tune Temple which has been fighting for power. The atmosphere in your temple is foul. No wonder the disciple of Ancestor Greenlotus seems more decent to me. All of you, bald donkeys, listen up. As long as I live, don’t even think about touching Jiang Chen.”
Peacock King was courteous towards Great Master Ran Feng due to the fame of Ancestor Greenlotus.
Great Master Tian Hou had the urge to die instantly. The current scene almost ruptured his blood vessels. He initially wanted to secretly call for a stronger reinforcement, a Buddha who was stronger than the Peacock King. However, he didn’t do it because he knew that going against Peacock King was similar to opposing the entire Demon Race. It wasn’t in their favor. Although Jiang Chen had destroyed Heavenly Sect, it wasn’t much of a concern because there were other major powers which were similar to Heavenly Sect.
