Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 866
The Soaring Heroic Aura
The patriarchs of the five families had expressed themselves very clearly. Their main purpose of coming here was to kill Jiang Chen. The battle in Void Triangular Domain that was caused by Jiang Chen had brought too much losses to them. They wanted Jiang Chen dead even if they were just doing this for their reputation’s sake.
Today, the passageways of the seven families had already been destroyed. The only remaining one was the passageway in the Demon Race. This was because Peacock King was still supporting it with all of his might. It was clear to them that Jiang Chen was on his way back using this passageway. In that case, they just needed to stay here and wait for his return. As long as Jiang Chen appeared in the Demon Race, they would find a reason to pressure them. More importantly, like what Desolate Yuntian and Narang Changtian had said, they wanted to see what kind of person this Jiang Chen was and how did he have such guts to do such outrageous things.
Lang Xingtian and Peacock King’s facial expression became slightly unpleasant. The current scenario had become difficult to handle. The opponents wouldn’t attack before Jiang Chen appeared, but once he appeared, they would certainly exert pressure on their race. Adding the rebellious party in the Demon Race into the picture, the task of protecting Jiang Chen had become a very challenging one.
Right now, Peacock King had to focus all his efforts in stabilizing the passageway, or else, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow would be lost in the unknown turbulent dimension when the passageway cracked and crumbled. As for how were they going to deal with these five overlords, he only could figure out a solution once Jiang Chen and Big Yellow return.
Currently, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were flying madly in the passageway at maximum speed. Adding their speed and the rolling flow of energy in the passageway, they would be able to reach Saint Origin World in half an hour’s time.
“Little Chen, you have killed so many experts in that domain. Their families in the Pure Land would certainly not let you live.”
Big Yellow looked over at Jiang Chen.
“Act according to the situation.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes sparkled with brilliance. The situation would never be peaceful the moment he returned to Saint Origin World this time. The Desolate Family would surely be the first one to seek him. He didn’t have a plan for them yet. He could only walk on whatever step that was presented to him at the moment.
However, they wouldn’t have thought that the patriarchs of the other five families were also waiting for their arrival in Demon Race. It was a scenario that he couldn’t escape from.
Three groups gathered above the Spiritual Space Mountain. The first group was Lang Xingtian and Peacock King. Their priority was to ensure Jiang Chen’s safety. The second group was the patriarchs of the five great families. They were here to kill Jiang Chen. The third group was the bloodline of Heavenly Leopard. They didn’t get along with the bloodline of Heavenly Wolf. They were a group of bystanders that would do nothing but watch the show.
Half an hour passed very quickly, the passageway of the Demon Race trembled abruptly and waves of spatial energy rippled in the void above the Spatial Space Mountain.
“They are back!”
Everyone’s expression changed and shifted their attention to the spot where the spatial energy was the greatest. Peacock King immediately released his exertion of the passageway. Then, two deep sounds were heard, and two silhouettes bounced out of the spatial passageway.
The force the passageway exerted was very great but the two who were bounced out were obviously powerful enough to stabilize themselves. They were a man and a dog. The man was around twenty-year-old with a good looking face. He was wearing a saintly snow-white clothes. His eyes were glittering brilliantly. If you looked closer into his eyes, they looked like a chasm.
To the experts of the Demon Race, they had already seen Big Yellow before. They found nothing unfamiliar on him, so nearly all of them shifted their attention to Jiang Chen. They were stunned when they got a clear look of Jiang Chen’s face. They expected to see a malicious looking face and a body that was as sturdy as a bear, an extremely audacious and wild man. They hadn’t thought that this mad man would be an elegant young prince. They wouldn’t believe it if they didn’t saw it with their own eyes.
“Is that him? Is that white-clothed young man Jiang Chen?”
“It is unimaginable to think that a prince-like young man like him is a wild devil who killed all the experts of the five families.”
“I heard that he has gotten rid of all the Ninth Grade Minor Saint experts with his cultivation grade of only Fifth Grade Minor Saint. I can’t imagine a person as young as him who could achieve such a heaven defying achievement. Not even the greatest genius of the Demon Race could match with his results.”
All the people of the Demon Race were astonished, including Lang Xingtian and Desolate Yuntian. They wouldn’t have thought that the person they were expecting to see was actually a young genius.
“He is truly young, but he has an extraordinary Qi that circulates indistinctly in his body. He is a son of the heaven which has the demeanour of a dragon. Someone like him will certainly achieve great things in the future.”
Although this was the first time that Lang Xingtian has seen Jiang Chen, he regarded Jiang Chen highly. The same thing happened to Desolate Yuntian and the others. However, the greater the potential of Jiang Chen is, the stronger their desire to eliminate him. If they couldn’t subdue this genius, they must certainly eliminate him, not to mention that they have already viewed each other as enemies.
“Motherf*cker! What’s happening here? Why did the atmosphere become so stifling?”
Big Yellow swept around and said.
“Jiang Chen, Big Yellow, they are the patriarchs from the five families. They’ve come here to kill Jiang Chen.”
Peacock King came to their side and told them everything via divine sense.
“Dammit! The patriarchs of the five families are present here at the same time? Did the situation really required their presence?”
Big Yellow spurted out a mouthful of blood. He had already predicted that the five families wouldn’t let Jiang Chen go, but he hadn’t expected that they would come so quickly. The moment they arrived, they have encountered such a situation before they could even gasp for a breath of relief. It seemed like these five overlords had already waited here for quite some time.
Jiang Chen gazed at Desolate Yuntian and the other patriarchs. His mouth revealed a cold smirk. Back when he dominated the Pure Land, none of them were the patriarchs of their families. Thus, they were only as little as a shrimp in his eyes.
What raised Jiang Chen’s doubts was that the patriarchs of the eight families were supposed to be peak Ninth Grade Great Saint experts. They were the strongest cultivators in this world, but these patriarchs in front of him were only Sixth Grade Great Saints. How was this possible?
Despite his doubts, he had to put them aside for now because a Sixth Grade Great Saint was definitely deadly to him. He was merely a Sixth Grade Minor Saint now. The difference was like the distance between the heavens and the earth, it was totally incomparable. If these people wanted him dead, he wouldn’t be able to escape his fate even if he exhausted all of his techniques.
“You are Jiang Chen?”
Desolate Yuntian said while his eyes were fixed on Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen made a step forward to the king of the Heavenly Wolf, Lang Xingtian and greeted him. “Jiang Chen meet patriarch.”
“En, not bad.”
Lang Xingtian couldn’t help but praise. It was rare to find a young man with such Qi, cultivation, audaciousness and composure. He could still remain composed while facing the patriarchs of the five families. It gave Lang Xingtian the urge to show his approval of Jiang Chen. He could discern that Jiang Chen’s composure wasn’t just a pretence.
“Little monster, you had the nerve to kill so many experts from my Huo Family. Who gave you such wild guts?”
Huo Batian yelled at Jiang Chen with his undisguised murderous intent.
“Huo Batian, don’t forget that this is the Demon Race. Do you really want to kill someone here on the Spiritual Space Mountain?”
After studying Jiang Chen, Lang Xingtian had decided to protect Jiang Chen with all his means and efforts. If the Demon Race stayed out of this matter, Jiang Chen would face only one outcome—death. If that happens, Big Yellow would go mad. Although the Demon Race could afford to lose Jiang Chen, they couldn’t afford to lose Big Yellow.
“Humph! Lang Xingtian, the five of us have arrived here at the same time. Do you really want to protect this little monster? I’m afraid that you alone would be unable to do that.”
Shi Haotian let out a cold humph.
Meanwhile, Desolate Yuntian, Narang Changtian and Dan Yantian expressed their murderous intent as well.
“Lang Xingtian, Jiang Chen has already appeared in the Demon Race. I am sure that you already know our intention of coming here very well. If the five of us combined our powers, I’m afraid that no one in your race would be able to defend it!”
Desolate Yuntian yelled.
Lang Xingtian was enraged but there was nothing that he could do. He knew it very well in his heart that it was fundamentally impossible to protect Jiang Chen now. Since these five patriarchs had come here personally, they wouldn’t leave without gaining a desirable result, but if they started a battle here, it would be disadvantageous to the Demon Race.
The king of Heavenly Leopard who was watching from a distance while smiling coldly. He would like to see how Lang Xingtian would resolve today’s matter. If the Spiritual Space Mountain suffered any damages because of Lang Xingtian’s decision, he would go to the Saint Origin Hall and use this excuse to request them to relieve Lang Xingtian’s duty in the Demon Race and letting him succeed the position of patriarch. To the king of Heavenly Leopard, this was a golden opportunity.
“Lang Xingtian, we don’t have a lot of time. I will give you ten breaths of time more to reconsider your decision. If you still refused to hand over Jiang Chen by then, we will strike.”
Desolate Yuntian said loudly.
“Patriarch, what do we do now?”
Peacock King frowned. The present situation was really troublesome. Their decision would not only affect Jiang Chen’s life, it would also affect the circumstances of the Demon Race, or even the circumstances of the entire Pure Land, igniting a war.
As soon as Peacock King’s words dropped, Jiang Chen took the initiative to stand out. He waved his sleeve and yelled to the five patriarch with heroic spirit: “No need for ten breaths’ of time. I am standing here now. I will stand here for all of you to kill. The five of you can just attack together to avenge your experts’ death , I won’t resist because I know that I am no match for any of you. Resistance would only be useless. I won’t frown even if you kill me. I, Jiang Chen, would certainly be a heroic figure. I, a mere Sixth Grade Minor Saint junior, could make the five patriarchs personally kill me.”
