Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 941
Returning To the Pure Land
In the distant blue blue sky, an explosion occurred in a part of the void. Three figures came out from the inside. They were none other than Jiang Chen, Big Yellow and Kong Yang. Presently, Jiang Chen had already recovered fully.
It was safe to say that Jiang Chen was the biggest winner and the largest harvester during this trip in the ancient battlefield. He had obtained two great trump cards – the heart of blaze and Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. His only regret was that he hadn’t explored the other uses of the pagoda besides its defence capability.
In the aspect of offense, all it could do was act as a weapon grinding machine. Well, how could the supreme treasure of the mighty true dragons have no offensive capability? Jiang Chen assumed that it was probably because he was still too weak to use the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda as a weapon. Only three floors were condensed out of the ninety nine floors. There was still a long way to go before it hit its peak.
Despite that, the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was still a divine item that could be used to defend. At least, it could help Jiang Chen deflect the attacks of the six Sixth Grade Great Saints if he wielded it.
“Where are we going now?”
Big Yellow looked over at Jiang Chen.
“We’ll go home first. The news of my death must have reached Martial Saint Dynasty by now. I’m afraid that my father won’t be able to bear such a tremendous blow. I have to let him know that I’m still alive.”
His eyes gazed at the direction of Martial Saint Dynasty. The most important thing right now was to go home, to tell his father, Jiang Zhenhai that he was still alive. He knew Jiang Zhenhai all too well. His father had put almost all of his thoughts and hopes on him. His son was the world and future that Jiang Zhenhai had built. If he died, it was hard to imagine how his father would go on in his life.
Without any hesitation, they flew towards Martial Saint Dynasty in a flash. At the rate that they are going, it would only be a matter of seconds before they reach their destination. They went directly into Martial Saint hall without alerting anyone as he had already executed his big plan. Only the higher ups of Martial Saint Dynasty should know about this. He wouldn’t want anyone spreading this news.
The atmosphere inside the main hall was very depressing. It was needless to say that Jiang Zhenhai had already fallen into depression and his mouth was muttering Jiang Chen’s name nonstop, while Peacock King and Lion Yan sat on their seats, silent, like two godly statues.
Yan Zhanyun, Wu Jiu, Guo Shan, Yu Zihan and Black Daoist were all present, including the higher ups of Martial Saint Dynasty, whom all had gloomy expressions. Jiang Chen’s passing had dealt a terrible blow to all of them. In their hearts, Jiang Chen wasn’t only the divine figure of Martial Saint Dynasty, he was also their relative, friend and brother.
At this moment, the void inside the main hall trembled.
“Who is it?”
Peacock King and Lion Yan cried. The others might not be able to feel the faint quiver but they could sense it the moment it emerged. Now that Jiang Chen was dead, they would be the first to defend anyone who wanted to harm Martial Saint Dynasty. Jiang Chen had gifted them the Heavenly Demon Saint Art which was an act of kindness that they couldn’t repay. Jiang Chen was no longer around, so they must ensure the safety of Jiang Chen’s family on his behalf.
Three silhouettes emerged in the main hall. The first was a figure in snowy white clothes and with an elegant bearing. A gesture from the person exuded the aura of dominance and heroism. Who would the person be if he wasn’t Jiang Chen?
“Peacock King, Lion Yan, don’t panic.”
Jiang Chen chuckled.
Both of them exclaimed. Their expression was the same as Kong Yang’s when he saw Jiang Chen. They instantly doubted their vision.
“That’s right, it’s me.”
Jiang Chen shrugged. He felt quite delighted in his heart when he saw Peacock King and Lion Yan are still here. It showed that he didn’t pick the wrong person. There was a saying that said that the tea would immediately cool down as soon as the person was gone. It indicated the superficial relationships of humans. Jiang Chen felt touched when he saw that Peacock King and Lion Yan were still here even after they heard that he died.
After Jiang Zhenhai, who was previously already half dead saw Jiang Chen, he got up abruptly from his seat and stepped straight to Jiang Chen. His mood now was beyond description.
Not just Jiang Zhenhai, everyone present was shocked, their eyes widened. Wasn’t Jiang Chen killed in battle? Why did he suddenly appear in front of us, alive now? What the heck is going on?
“Dad, it’s my fault for letting you feel worried.”
Jiang Chen reached out to Jiang Zhenhai and wiped the tears at the edge of his eyes, feeling guilty. Since he left Fragrant Sky City, he rarely stayed with his father, but he knew that no matter where he went and no matter how high his achievements were , this middle-aged man would always be his greatest concern, as this was his father, nothing in this world could replace this father-and-son relationship.
“Brother, you aren’t dead...”
Wu Jiu ran over and patted Jiang Chen’s shoulders with force.
“Jiang Chen, what’s this all about? Didn’t you get killed by the joint attack of the six great experts?”
Peacock King as well as Lion Yan were baffled. They knew that Jiang Chen would certainly die when they heard that he was surrounded by six Sixth Grade Great Saints. Even if he had already advanced to the Great Saint realm, he wasn’t a match for six high rank Great Saint experts. As such, they had never doubted the veracity of the news.
“Am I, Jiang Chen so easily killed?”
“Dad, this was part of brother Jiang’s plan. He wasn’t killed in the joint attack, he got away from the powerful experts using his techniques. None of the six experts noticed his escape, so they concluded that brother Jiang was killed.”
Said Kong Yang with a smile.
After hearing this, Peacock King and Lion Yan took a breath of cold air. A First Grade Great Saint managed to slip away from the joint strike of six Sixth Grade Great Saints without leaving a trace? Who else in the Heaven and Earth could have such a heaven defying ability besides Jiang Chen?
Or perhaps, heaven defying was no longer the word to describe it.
“Dad, father-in-law, brother Jiu, I didn’t die in that battle. I, Jiang Chen wouldn’t die so easily. I only fear that you all will be too worried for me, so I immediately rushed back the moment my injuries were healed, however, I will be leaving soon. I put up this pretence to execute a plan of mine. You all don’t tell anyone that I am still alive, even to the members of Martial Saint Dynasty.”
Said Jiang Chen, in a solemn tone.
“Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.”
Jiang Zhenhai laughed happily. “I knew it. The son of Jiang Zhenhai won’t die so easily.”
Jiang Zhenhai recovered his majestic enthusiasm which looked completely different from his previously half-dead look.
“What’s your plan, Jiang Chen?”
Peacock King asked curiously.
“I’m going to Saint Origin Palace with another identity.”
Said Jiang Chen straightforwardly.
“Go to Saint Origin Palace?”
Lion Yan was stunned.
“Yes, my cultivation has already entered the Great Saint realm, the Pure Land is no longer a challenge to me. With my ability, it wouldn’t be difficult to change my appearance. Besides, everyone already thought that I am dead, so I just have to change my face and no one will be able to find out.”
Jiang Chen said. One should know that changing one’s look was very easy but changing the Qi was difficult. However, Jiang Chen’s current situation had given him the advantage. Everyone already knew that he was dead. So, there was no need for him to deliberately change everything about him including his Qi, also, none of the peerless experts in Saint Origin Palace had seen him before.
“It turns out that you are really going to Saint Origin Palace. This is best for you given your talent. I believe that you will be able to overturn Saint Origin Palace very soon and this is what we are hoping to see.”
Peacock King nodded. It would irrefutably be a good thing if Jiang Chen managed to enter Saint Origin Palace. Someone like Jiang Chen wouldn’t bring any peace wherever he went. Saint Origin Palace was the real master of Saint Origin World and the chaos in Saint Origin Palace would throw the entire world into turbulence. Presently, the Desolate Family was growing stronger which was very disadvantageous to the Gu Family and Demon Race. If he could roil this pool of water, it would benefit both the Gu Family and Demon Race.
“Jiang Chen, do you have any specific plans?”
Asked Lion Yan.
“The eight major families should have the right to send people to Saint Origin Palace. I will enter Saint Origin Palace with the Gu Family’s identity. When you all return, tell patriarch and the others that I am heading to Saint Origin Palace, but you must not speak about it openly. All of my plans will go in vain if the six major families find out that I am not yet dead.”
Jiang Chen explained delicately.
Peacock King and Lion Yan nodded. They understood that Jiang Chen’s death was only to outsmart the major six. If today’s new was spread out, all of his efforts would be wasted, and they knew how crucial things would become if this cover was blown up.
“Time is of the essence, we will return to the Pure Land now.”
Said Jiang Chen. He bode farewell to Jiang Zhenhai and the others.
“Chen Er, be careful, always.”
Jiang Zhenhai reminded Jiang Chen. Although he had no idea what Saint Origin Place was, he could guess that it was a force that was greater than the major powers of the Pure Land and not even Jiang Chen could offend them at the moment, otherwise, he wouldn’t feign his death.
“Don’t worry, dad. I know what to do. Why are you worrying so much for your son even though you know what your son is capable of?”
Jiang Chen placed his hands on Jiang Zhenhai’s shoulder, showing the demeanor of a prince back when he was still in Fragrant Sky City.
“Haha! I’m not, of course.”
Jiang Zhenhai laughed aloud. His current mood became better and his spirit was lifted back up to its original level.
Then, Jiang Chen, Peacock King and the others departed Martial Saint Dynasty. Before he left the Eastern Continent, he summoned the devil and the earth devil beast.
The two great devils saluted Jiang Chen.
“From now on, you two don’t have to follow me anymore. Stay here and protect Martial Saint Dynasty. If anything goes wrong here, you two won’t be living anymore.”
Said Jiang Chen in a cold tone.
