Chapter 2798: Unkillable
Just as Chu Jie and the other four launched their attacks, the pale Scion of Five Point hovered in the distance, staring straight at Jian Chen. He had been extremely confident in his strength. He was just an early Godking, but the combination of the Laws of Space and Laws of Time had elevated his battle prowess far beyond his current level. Even regular mid Godkings were not his opponent once he used the World of Heaven and Earth.
Yet, despite his confidence, he had not even managed to last a single attack against Jian Chen. As a result, Jian Chen became almost unfathomable in his eyes despite also being a Godking.
“Yang Yutian is just too powerful. I wonder whether he can survive the attacks from five existences akin to Primordial realm experts,” the Scion of Five Point thought to himself. He was rather eager, as if he wanted to witness Yang Yutian’s true strength through this battle.
On the other side, an undiscoverable sneer flashed through Jian Chen’s eyes as he sensed the five powerful attacks around him. In Chu Jie and the others’ eyes, these Primordial realm attacks were what allowed them to stand and protect themselves within the Darkstar World, their greatest trump card against the Darkstar race. However, in Jian Chen’s eyes, they were so futile.
With the toughness of his Chaotic Body, the Primordial realm attacks they had launched through the formations could not even touch a hair on him even if he stood there defenceless.
That was because attacks at the First Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime were no longer enough to damage his Chaotic Body. It could not even leave a scratch on him.
However, with the Scion of Five Point spectating on the side, Jian Chen obviously could not display his Primordial realm battle prowess. Just when their attacks were about to land on him, Jian Chen gripped a supreme quality saint artifact sword and stabbed out five times with lightning speed. Every single stab surged with light and was unbelievably fast. Especially when imbued with the Laws of Space that Jian Chen had purposefully lowered to Godking, it led to an illusion where he clearly just stabbed out once, but five attacks appeared insead.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The five strands of sword Qi collided with the attacks violently. With a great rumble, a terrifying storm of energy wreaked havoc in the surroundings. The sword Qi Jian Chen had launched was forcefully dispersed before the five powerful attacks, while the five attacks weakened slightly, worn away by the sword Qi. Afterwards, they struck Jian Chen at the same time with their remaining might.
Within the rumble, Jian Chen collapsed on the ground from the attack. His white robes had already been reduced to ashes, revealing an armour made from beast hide.
The beast hide armour was also a supreme quality saint artifact, but under the five Primordial realm attacks, it had become tattered. It was already half-destroyed.
“I never thought you’d actually have a defensive supreme quality saint artifact on you. I’ve underestimated an independent cultivator like you. However, even if you have a defensive supreme quality saint artifact, it can’t change anything today. It’ll just make you last a little longer. Yang Yutian, have you ever imagined you would suffer a fate like this?” Chu Tian laughed viciously. When they attacked Jian Chen, they had also used their Primordial realm powers to disturb the space there, making it unstable, so the Laws of Space would be rendered almost ineffective. This was to prevent Yang Yutian from escaping.
“Chu Jie, why’re you blabbering all that nonsense? The Hundred Saint City will learn about the battle here very soon. Once Jin Hong and the others get here, killing Yang Yutian won’t be that easy anymore. If we want to kill him, we need to be quick!” Gong Ruize said coldly. The power of the Primordial realm gathered in him. He seemed to be merged with the many sacrificial Godkings as he mobilised everyone’s powers to launch a strand of sword Qi towards Jian Chen below.
“Don’t worry. Once we strike together, Yang Yutian will be dead for sure. Killing him won’t take much time at all. He won’t be able to last until his reinforcements arrive.” Chu Tian laughed aloud before charging towards Jian Chen with everyone else from all directions. All of their eyes were filled with cold killing intent. They were extremely determined to kill Jian Chen.
A sliver of cold light flashed through Jian Chen’s eyes too. Today was supposed to be the day when he would kill the five of them. However, the spectating Scion of Five Point on the side prevented him from unleashing his true strength, just in case it would lead to unwarranted trouble.
“The Scion of Five Point is the disciple of the Point Cloud Venerable, while the Point Cloud Venerable has assisted me before. As a result, I obviously can’t kill his disciple. However, if I don’t kill him and unleash my true strength, he’ll see all of it. Once news of it reaches the Darkstar race, it’ll be extremely bad for me. My identity as the fifth hall master might even be given away.”
“But if I continue to hide my strength, it’ll be impossible for me to kill them today.” Jian Chen weighed his options inside. As he did that, he clashed with the five of them again. In order to conceal his strength properly, he was forced to reduce the armour on him to dust and create a few wounds for himself, so he seemed heavily injured.
Only with that could he avoid suspicion. Otherwise, if a Godking emerged unscathed even from five Primordial realm attacks, it would be far too shocking. Only those who had reached peak Godking and ranked in the top ten of the Godkings’ Throne could achieve such an astonishing feat.
“Looks like all I can do is capture the Scion of Five Point and release him when I leave the Darkstar World,” thought Jian Chen. This was the only idea he could come up with. However, just when he was about to take action, his heart suddenly skipped a beat. In the direction of the Hundred Saint City, he discovered a figure flying rapidly towards this place through the senses of his soul. He had used some kind of secret technique, allowing him to move startlingly fast. He had actually erupted with speed on par with Primordial realm experts despite being a mid Godking, shattering through space and crossing thousands of kilometers each moment.
“Jin Hong is actually coming!” Jian Chen frowned. As a Grand Exalt’s successor, who knew how many ancient secret techniques he had inherited. It was nothing strange for him to possess this kind of speed. However, that would mean his plan to capture the Scion of Five Point and unleash his Primordial realm strength to kill Chu Jie and the others had fallen through.
“Looks like all I can do is last a little longer.” Jian Chen was helpless inside. Jin Hong’s arrival forced him to continue with his act. Blood sprayed everywhere from his mouth as his strength deflated like a balloon. His face became sheet-white, extremely heavily injured as if he was on the brink of death.
“Hahaha, he can’t last much longer. He’s going to die soon!” As Chu Jie launched vicious attacks at Jian Chen, he laughed with cruelty. Looking at how pitifully weak Yang Yutian had become and comparing it to his arrogance in the Two World Mountains, he felt great satisfaction. He seemed to finally vent the sense of humiliation and frustration he had repressed for so long.
Nearby, the Scion of Five Point watched on indifferently. He had no intentions of interfering. In his eyes, Yang Yutian’s fate had nothing to do with him. Even if Yang Yutian had mentioned his master, the Point Cloud Venerable, he still had no intentions of assisting him. The reason why he had remained here was because he wanted to personally witness just how long the expert who had defeated him in a single strike could last in an encirclement of five Primordial realm experts.
Or in other words, he wanted to see how Yang Yutian would die.
“Sigh, a prodigy is about to die young. Master is right. The vast Saints’ World has never lacked monstrously talented prodigies, but ninety-nine percent of these people will die young on their path of growth. Less than one in a hundred can truly become great experts.” The Scion of Five Point had already changed into a new set of white robes. He crossed his arms as he hovered in the air, sighing to himself.
In the battlefield, powerful pulses of energy constantly tore through the surroundings and booms rang out endlessly. The five of them continued to launch wild attacks at Jian Chen, and their rhythm sped up.
That was because the five of them had noticed something strange. Yang Yutian was already heavily injured from their attacks. He was covered in blood, and his life force extremely weak, as if he was on his last breath.
However, he just did not die.
Whenever they thought Yang Yutian was about to give in, only requiring a single strike to easily kill him, the outcome when their attacks landed on him would be coughing up a few mouthfuls of blood and becoming even more heavily injured in his near-death state. However, he just did not die.
If it were just once, then so be it. However, this continued for several times in a row, which almost drove the five of them crazy.
In that instant, they even began to wonder how many lives Yang Yutian possessed. How was he still alive after taking on so many fatal attacks? He was simply unkillable.
