Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 870
Can’t Withstand Even a Single Blow
Desolate Liang reached the destination after just a short while, and stopped just outside the Spiritual Space Mountain. His current Qi was full of momentum, his murderous aura was soaring to the sky as he yelled towards the Spiritual Space Mountain, “Jiang Chen, get your a*s out now!”
This was the usual manner of the young geniuses of the Pure Land. This was a genius that was ranked at the 30th place on the Sky Ranking. He wasn’t like any ordinary genius who wouldn’t dare to clamor at the Spiritual Space Mountain. Of course, the most that Desolate Liang could do was just to yell outside of the mountain. He wouldn’t dare intrude the sky above the mountain like Desolate Yuntian. If he did so, the experts of the Demon Race would surely send him to his death with a slap. His death would be in vain.
Many cultivators who were near the Spiritual Space Mountain had already reached their destination. They were standing at different spots, waiting for the show. Desolate Liang was not unfamiliar to them, but Jiang Chen was. They would like to find out how he looked like, and why did his name spread across the Pure Land all of a sudden, why did the five patriarchs seek him in person and how did he have the guts to directly challenge all of the geniuses in the Pure Land.
Desolate Liang’s voice had alerted the experts of the Demon Race. Many of them flew out of the Spiritual Space Mountain. Jiang Chen had just made the declaration the day before and today a genius of the Desolate Family has already knocked on his door. The Spiritual Space Mountain hadn’t been this lively for a long time.
In a quiet building in the courtyard, Jiang Chen was still in seclusion. At this time, Golden Fur Lion King appeared on Jiang Chen’s doorstep.
Jiang Chen frowned. He hated it the most when he was disturbed during his cultivation. He swore that if Golden Fur Lion King didn’t give him a good reason for interrupting him, he certainly wouldn’t be polite.
Jiang Chen opened the door of the room and saw Golden Fur Lion King’s sturdy body blocking the doorway entirely.
“Lion King, you have disturbed my cultivation. You better give me a good reason for that.”
Jiang Chen said emotionlessly.
Golden Fur Lion King was petrified. He could sense Jiang Chen’s unhappiness, he could feel an indistinct sense of pressure from his fluctuating emotions. That was a pressure that came from his soul. It made him feel like the young man standing in front him wasn’t really a young man but a mighty Saint.
“Brother Jiang Chen, a genius of Desolate Family, Desolate Liang, has come to challenge you. He is currently outside the Spiritual Space Mountain.”
Golden Fur Lion King said.
Jiang Chen was stunned for a moment. He hadn’t expected that the geniuses would respond so quickly to his challenge.
“Jiang Chen, why aren’t you coming out to confront your death? If you are afraid, come out and kowtow three times in front of me.”
A proud voice was heard again. This time, Jiang Chen heard it clearly. It seemed like the one who disturbed him wasn’t really Golden Fur Lion King but this young genius named Desolate Liang.
Golden Fur Lion King didn’t bother to explain anymore since the opponent’s voice had already reached the room. He didn’t think that Jiang Chen would be a timid freak, after all, he was the one who declared the battle.
“What’s the cultivation of Desolate Liang?”
Jiang Chen asked.
“Peak Ninth Grade Minor Saint. He is ranked 30th on the Sky Ranking, and is a very strong genius. He couldn’t be compared to any ordinary Ninth Grade Minor Saints. Even I am not fitted to be his opponent.”
Golden Fur Lion King said.
“Ninth Grade Minor Saint…isn’t my opponent. I will go and find out.”
Jiang Chen said, he then disappeared after a sway. As a matter of fact, Jiang Chen had already lost his interest the moment he heard Desolate Liang’s cultivation, even if that Desolate Liang was ranked 30th on the Sky Ranking and had greater power than his peers who had a similar cultivation. If Jiang Chen was merely a Fifth Grade Minor Saint, the battle between them would surely be intense and the outcome probably would be a draw, but he was already a Sixth Grade Minor Saint now. Any geniuses who are below the Great Saint realm wouldn’t be able to stand against him.
He was powerful enough to kill Nan Bei Chao. Even if Desolate Liang was stronger than his peers, he wouldn’t be any stronger than Nan Bei Chao. When Nan Bei Chao used his Eternal Immortal Wind, his cultivation was boosted to half a step away from the Great Saint realm. So now, Jiang Chen's only interest laid on the top ten geniuses on the Sky Ranking.
Many people were present outside the mountain. This was the first battle between Desolate Liang, a genius of Pure Land, and Jiang Chen. That was why it had attracted countless of attention.
“What happened? Why hasn’t that Jiang Chen come out yet? Could it be that he is too afraid to come out?”
“I don’t think so. He was the one who initiated the battle. If he is really hiding somewhere and wouldn’t dare to come out, his declaration would be unjustified.”
“I think he is scared. Desolate Liang is very strong after all. He is ranked 30th genius on the Sky Ranking. I heard that Jiang Chen is merely a Fifth Grade or a Sixth Grade Minor Saint. It only makes sense for him to be afraid under such an opponent.”
Jiang Chen’s absence and unresponsiveness aroused the dissatisfaction among them. They felt that Jiang Chen was afraid, but as soon as their words faded, they saw a handsome youth in white clothes step into the void and reached Desolate Liang in a few blinks. His dark hair danced along with the breeze. His face was full of resoluteness. Anyone who saw him could straightaway determine that he was a dragon among his peers, an outstanding talent.
“You are Jiang Chen.”
Desolate Liang looked at Jiang Chen and yelled.
“That’s right. It’s me.”
Jiang Chen replied in a flat tone.
“He is young, much younger than me. I never thought that this Jiang Chen would be this young.”
“Yeah, it is truly rare that he has attained such achievements at such a young age. Plus, he is just a nobody before this, a rogue cultivator, unlike those geniuses of the eight families, who had access to boundless of resources since young.”
“Who do you think is stronger? I expect that Desolate Liang would dominate this battle since he is a genius on the Sky Ranking.”
“It’s hard to tell. We’ll see. Today’s battle is surely going to be world-shaking.”
Jiang Chen’s appearance had astonished countless of them. They were astonished by his young age. They had prepared to watch this good show, and thought that this was going to be a massive battle. Many of the bystanders felt that they would benefit a lot just by watching this battle.
“Jiang Chen, you have the nerve to kill so many of our experts and declared to fight the geniuses on the Pure Land. I, Desolate Liang, have come here to kill you, to regain the reputation and dignity of my family.”
Desolate Liang’s Qi fluctuated.
“Attack now, but I have an advice for you. You should use your strongest attack on me now, otherwise your death will be in vain.”
Jiang Chen crossed his arms behind his back. His entire body was filled with surging and domineering aura that intimidated people.
“Haha! You must be kidding. Do I need to use my strongest attack to defeat you? Go to hell!”
Desolate Liang laughed. He felt that he had just heard the funniest joke ever. He just wanted to use his ability to cripple Jiang Chen and show him what his true power was.
Jiang Chen sighed. He didn’t want to be bothered by someone like Desolate Liang. He summoned the Heavenly Saint Sword in his hand when Desolate Liang’s attack almost reached him. He swung the sword at incredible speed, pulverising all of Desolate Liang’s attack and reached him in a twinkle.
Exclaimed Desolate Liang. The fact remained that anyone who hadn’t fought with Jiang Chen could not understand his fearsomeness. This fact was also applied to Desolate Liang as well. Desolate Liang could feel that death was almost upon him when Jiang Chen swung his sword violently at him. He regretted not listening to Jiang Chen’s advice very much, not using his strongest attack.
Jiang Chen spat out a word. The Heavenly Saint Sword in his hand sped up and countless of destructive Qi was unleashed from it, slashing Desolate Liang into half.
