Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 903
It’s because I am Jiang Chen
This was a very desolate mountain range. One could even describe it as it being deserted. Normally, you won’t find a single soul here. Even though this was a vast mountain range, not a single demon beast could be found here. These facts only showed how concealed the stronghold of the Dark Shadow was, not to mention it was situated in an independent spatial zone. This explained why only a handful of people knew about the location of the Dark Shadow organization despite having existed in this world for so long.
“Even the node that connects to the stronghold is constantly changing. So I need to sense for it before I can find it.”
The earth devil beast said.
At this moment, Jiang Chen’s Qi fluctuated. He suddenly struck out the True Dragon Palm and grabbed towards one direction in the void.
Jiang Chen yelled. A figure was grasped out of the void. He was a Minor Saint. He was instantly killed by Jiang Chen.
“This is an assassin of the Dark Shadow. It seems like he is the lookout here. Fortunately Jiang Chen has found out about him, or else our enemies will be alerted.”
Said Peacock King. He and Lion Yan looked at Jiang Chen feeling impressed. The assassins of Dark Shadow were good at concealing themselves. Given their cultivation, they should be able to detect the presence of a Minor Saint assassin, but they had forgotten about this and only Jiang Chen was able to sense the assassin’s presence. From here, it showed that not only did Jiang Chen have an amazingly sharp sense, but is also cautious. He wouldn’t fight a battle without certainty.
The earth devil beast found the spatial node. Peacock King took a step forth. He stuck out his barbaric hand to rip open the spatial node. Then, the few of them disappeared into the deserted mountain range and appeared in the spatial zone.
With a single look, one could tell that this space was created by Great Saint cultivators. It wasn’t very large and there weren’t a lot of buildings. There was a black palace. The air was filled with strong murderous intent which make people feel uncomfortable. This was the convergence point of the assassins. Everyone here was a phantom in the dark and their hands were stained with blood.
“Who is it?”
They were immediately spotted by two assassins the moment they appeared. The assassins immediately yelled at them. These assassins were born with senses towards danger, like the keen sense of smell. Furthermore, this was the hinterland of the Dark Shadow. No outsider had ever come in here, and not many of the assassins that they cultivated were qualified to enter this place.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow took the lead and killed the two assassins in split seconds. Big Yellow smashed one of the assassin to pieces using his head. He is now a First Grade Great Saint. Minor Saints were just like ants that he could pinch to death any time.
Jiang Chen’s method was similarly cruel. He crushed the head of the assassin instantly with his hand. These two assassins died tragically. They didn’t even have the chance to wail.
“Big Yellow, do you still remember that time in Moon Pavilion?”
Jiang Chen gazed at the black palace.
Big Yellow showed a smile which signifies understanding, and vanished with a swoosh. He and Jiang Chen had been together for a long time. The tacit understanding between them had reached the point where they only needed eye contact to communicate. The objective this time was to uproot the entire Dark Shadow organization and to completely erase this organization from Saint Origin World. There is no doubt that the method they used on the Moon Pavilion was the best way to deal with this black palace. Now that Big Yellow had advanced to the Great Saint realm, he became even more proficient in setting up formations. He is going to unnoticeably deploy a grand formation over this spatial zone to contain all of them, not letting anyone leave this place.
“What’s Big Yellow going to do?”
Lion Yan asked, puzzled.
“Cutting off their escaping route.”
Jiang Chen smiled. Then, the five of them strode towards the direction of the stronghold. The earth devil beast was the first in the team to reach the stronghold. There were three or four Minor Saint experts outside the stronghold. They were stunned when they saw that Jiang Chen’s group was coming, but they felt relieved when they saw the earth devil beast. The four of them greeted the earth devil beast with a bow. It was enough to show how high his status was in the Dark Shadow.
“Lord, the earth devil beast is back. They are…?”
One of the assassins asked. His eyes swept over Jiang Chen and the other three. He couldn’t help but frown. One should know that this was the heart of the Dark Shadow. No outsiders had ever come in here. If it wasn’t for the earth devil beast, they would have already sent the distress signal.
The earth devil beast didn’t answer their question. A wave of devil wave rushed out of his body, and shrouded the four of them completely. They were just like the previous two assassins. They died on the spot without even having the chance to wail. Not a single of their remains were left.
“Who is acting outrageously in the Dark Shadow?”
At this moment, a loud bellow suddenly rang out from the black palace. Then, powerful silhouettes flew out one after another. There were hundreds of them. Among them were more than a dozen of Great Saints. The one who seemed to be the leader looked about 50 years old. He was as skinny as a firewood, as if he could easily be blown away by a gust of wind, but the murderous intent exuded from his body was the strongest.
“He is the supreme leader of the Dark Shadow, a Fifth Grade Great Saint.”
The earth devil beast said softly.
The people of Dark Shadow had incredible senses, not to mention that they have Great Saints. When the earth devil beast killed the four assassins, although there were no movements detected, they were still able to sense it from the inside.
“These should be all the assassins in the entire stronghold.”
The earth devil beast said.
For a moment, the whole sky was filled with a chilling murderous Qi. Every assassin that was present in the scene were the top assassins across the Saint Origin World. The combination of their murderous Qi was enough to form a murderous storm. These murderous Qi could tremble even the soul of a person.
Facing these uninvited guests, their eyes fell upon the earth devil beast. Even the leader among them had a surprised look on his face. They had no idea why the earth devil beast had gotten together with these outsiders.
“Earth devil beast, do you have any idea what you are doing?”
The leader scolded.
“My master wants to destroy the Dark Shadow, so I will help him kill you all.”
The earth devil beast said. After being edified, he now listened to nothing and nobody except Jiang Chen. Even if Jiang Chen wanted him to commit suicide, he would do so, without hesitation.
“Earth devil beast, your f*cking brain must have been kicked by a donkey. You are a majestic king of devils, but now, you are obeying a human. Besides, you have also exposed the location of our stronghold to them. This is an unforgivable sin.”
A Fourth Grade Great Saint snarled at the earth devil beast.
“Cut the crap and receive your death.”
Peacock King bellowed. Without saying any more words, he clawed at the void. A giant palm, radiating seven colours of light appeared on the heads of those assassins in the blink of an eye.
Clearly, the leader of the Dark Shadow didn’t expect that the opponent would suddenly attack without warning. In his opinion, it was without a doubt throwing an egg against a rock, when the few of them wanted to fight against them all. As such, he absolutely didn’t put Peacock King and the others in his eyes.
Too bad he didn’t know Peacock King’s true identity yet.
The strike produced massive amounts of overflowing energy, immediately after that, screams were heard. Five or six Minor Saint assassins had their bodies ripped off, when they couldn’t withstand the energy waves.
The leader finally regained his senses. He bellowed and lifted his hand, launching a beam of light, blocking Peacock King’s attack.
“Listen up people. Kill these outsiders at all costs. Don’t let any of them walk out of the stronghold.”
The leader raged. This stronghold was the heart of Dark Shadow. It had been in operation for a long time, and had never been known to outsiders. When these people broke in, they must not be allowed to go out of this place.
“Haha, come on!”
Peacock King rose to the sky. His target was clear – the leader.
“A puny Fourth Grade Great Saint dare to shout ignorantly in front of me? You must not know how death feels like.”
The leader snarled and immediately created an independent battlefield for two of them.
“Lion Patriarch, I will leave the two Fourth Grade Great Saints to you.”
Jiang Chen drew out his Heavenly Saint Sword and transformed into half-dragon form. He had known the Dark Shadow for a very long time, so there was nothing else that they should talk about besides killing.
“Don’t worry, these two old guys will be crushed by me with ease.”
Lion Yan let out a coarse roar, while charging at the two Fourth Grade Great Saints. As the patriarch of the Lion Race, his techniques couldn’t be compared to any average peer. Even if they had the same grade as him, and there were also two of them, he wouldn’t have a problem taking them down.
“Earth devil beast, devil, Big Yellow, the three of you go and deal with the three Third Grade Great Saints. Leave the rest to me.”
Jiang Chen gave orders to them. At the same time, Big Yellow emerged. He had finished deploying a grand formation in the void, sealing the entire spatial zone. It would be impossible for most of the people here to escape. As for the leader, Peacock King would definitely give him no chance of escaping.
The shouting filled the atmosphere for a moment. Both sides had begun the fight. The entire spatial zone was divided into several battlefields. Peacock King was fighting the leader, while Lion Yan was fighting the two Fourth Grade Great Saints and the earth devil beast, the devil and Big Yellow were confronting one Third Grade Great Saint each.
Jiang Chen was still weak and couldn’t defeat a Third Grade Great Saint for the time being, but there was no question about handling any opponents below that grade.
“Brat, why are you attacking the Dark Shadow?”
A Second Grade Great Saint looked at Jiang Chen and asked coldly. At this very moment, five Great Saints had firmly surrounded him. They were either First Grade Great Saints or Second Grade Great Saints. To them, Jiang Chen was merely a puny Eighth Grade Minor Saint whom they could simply pinch to death. The leader had already given the order to kill all of them.
“It’s because I am Jiang Chen.”
Jiang Chen replied in a cold tone. He gave out his name. He believed that these people weren’t fools. They should already know why, when they heard his name.
