Chapter 693: The Juncture of Danger
“What, you can’t contact the grand elder?” Hearing what Ming Dong had said, Nubis’s expression changed greatly.
Ming Dong was very anxious, “The reason why uncle Tian could arrive on time last time was because he gave a piece of jade that could contact him to Huang Tianba. Now that the jade has been used up, the objects uncle Tian originally left for me to contact him have also been used up so I can’t contact him anymore. It’ll be troublesome this time. The opponent is a powerful Saint King, so how can Jian Chen be his opponent?”
Bi Hai inferred some of the details from the conversation between the two and also became extremely anxious. He said, “Just how did my great-grandson provoke an expert like that? And he’s even a king from the Gilligan clan! No, he is the only hope for my Bi clan. I definitely can’t let him die so young like this. No matter how strong the enemy is, I must save him even if I lose my old life.” Saying that, Bi Hai was prepared to fly out through the hole in the roof created by Jian Chen. However, just when he was about to move, he was stopped by Nubis.
“You old senile fool, you don’t even know how strong a Saint King is. With your strength as a Saint Ruler of the Fifth Heavenly Layer, you can’t even change anything. If a Saint King wants to kill you, it’s only a matter of the twitch of a finger. Even if you go, you’ll just die for nothing.” Nubis scolded.
“I don’t know if my grandfather can save Jian Chen, but I’ll immediately call for grandfather.” Little Fatty understood that Jian Chen was in danger. After mentioning this, he immediately bit a finger on his left hand, dripping the blood onto the Space Ring on his right hand.
Nubis became rather agitated. Hearing what Little Fatty had said, he immediately began snapped, “Who do you think your grandfather is? Even if he comes, he’s useless. He’s gotta be the grand elder of Mercenary City or some peerless expert from some ancient clan. The opponent’s a king from the Gilligan clan, okay? A bloody Class 8 tiger. There’s so few people that can fight against him, it’s countable.”
“You’re not allowed to speak ill of my grandfather. My grandfather’s really powerful.” Seeing how Nubis belittled his grandfather, it made Little Fatty extremely unhappy. He yelled at Nubis angrily.
“You little kiddo, I, the great Nubis, am not bored enough to bicker with you. Right now, everyone should just quickly think of ideas, best to contact the grand elder. Otherwise, if Jian Chen doesn’t hand over the Winged Tiger God, perhaps he really will be in danger.”
Jian Chen sandwiched the cub tightly in his armpit. He wielded the Dragon Slaying Sword tightly in his right hand and the soaring presence he gave off radiated into the distance. He seemed to completely fuse with the surrounding space, becoming one with it. He flew into the distance silently. His speed was very fast, so fast that only a blurry afterimage could be seen.
Behind him, the member of the Gilligan clan maintained a sneer. He followed behind him unhurriedly. With his strength as a Saint King, he did not worry about Jian Chen escaping, as he was only a Saint Ruler of the First Heavenly Layer escaping.
After a mere few breaths, Jian Chen had already appeared over several dozen kilometers away, far away from the base of the Flame Mercenaries. The prosperous and lively city below him had also disappeared, replaced by a desolate grassland.
“Jian Chen, it’s peaceful enough here. There’s no need to worry about slaughtering innocent people and suffering Celestial Decay. Let’s handle our business here.” At this moment, Jian Chen suddenly heard the voice of the Gilligan clan member. When he had finished speaking, Jian Chen saw that the Gilligan clan member who was supposed to be behind him had suddenly appeared in front of him, blocking his path.
Jian Chen’s reaction was very fast, coming to a screeching stop. He shot a swift but forceful glance at the middle-aged man and his expression was extremely solemn. The chaotic neidan in his dantian began to spit out large amounts of Chaotic Force soon after. The vast Chaotic Force quickly surged about in Jian Chen’s body, reaching every corner in his body and increasing the defence of the Chaotic Body to the limit. Another strand of Chaotic Force directly surged into his right arm before being poured into the Dragon Slaying Sword.
The blurry, glittering glow of the Dragon Slaying Sword was suppressed and replaced by a dark, beautiful glow. At the same time, a presence of destruction began to radiate from the Dragon Slaying Sword, causing the surrounding space to greatly warp.
At that moment, Jian Chen had already adjusted his body to the peak condition, completely ready to use all of his strength. He did not dare to hold back at all, as he knew that this battle perhaps would be his toughest and most hopeless battle in his life.
The Gilligan clan member ridiculed as he stared at Jian Chen, “Interesting. Who would have thought that a First Heavenly Layer Saint Ruler like you would be giving off a presence comparable to a Fifth Heavenly Layer Saint Ruler. You really are the cream of the crop for the humans. No wonder Rum Guinness would give her own cub to you to look after.”
“However, do you think that you can resist against me with just that little power? Such arrogance.” The magical beast’s tone was filled with disdain.
Jian Chen said nothing. He stared fixedly at the member of the Gilligan clan, before suddenly giving out a great roar. Even more Chaotic Force flowed from his body into the Dragon Slaying Sword. The dark glow of the Dragon Slaying Sword immediately began to increase and the presence of destruction suddenly increased multiple times on end. Afterwards, he swung out.
A Sword Qi completely composed of Chaotic Force shot out from the Dragon Slaying Sword, cutting through space. It shot towards the magical beast like nothing short of a thunderbolt. Jian Chen had put everything into the strike. It was his greatest attack with the strength he currently possessed.
The member of the Gilligan clan revealed a sneer. He clenched his hand softly, and the space in front immediately began to solidify. The terrifying Sword Qi from Jian Chen was forcefully frozen in the space, unable to move at all. Shortly afterwards, the frozen space directly shattered and with it, the Sword Qi completely dispersed.
Jian Chen had poured all his strength into the strike, yet it was actually unable to even approach the magical beast from the Gilligan clan. He only needed to move slightly to completely nullify Jian Chen’s attack without using much strength at all.
Seeing what had happened, Jian Chen immediately became overwhelmed by despair. Shortly afterwards, he did not hesitate and immediately turned around to escape. He became one with the surrounding space, using Spatial Force to escape into the distance, akin to a lightning bolt.
“You want to escape in my presence? Hmph, you have no right.” The Gilligan clan member stared at Jian Chen in disdain before swinging his hand to cut open the space in front of him, creating a Space Gate. In the blink of an eye, he appeared in front of Jian Chen, blocking his way once again.
“Jian Chen, I’ve already given you an opportunity. It was you who failed to appreciate my kindness. Since it’s like that, don’t blame me for being impolite.” The Gilligan clan member spoke expressionlessly, before directly throwing a punch at Jian Chen who was several hundred meters away.
The simple-looking punch actually carried much of the mysteries of the world. As he struck out the blow, time seemed to suffer a short pause.
A shapeless energy directly pierced through space, striking Jian Chen like a lightning bolt. It landed square on his chest.
Retch! Jian Chen was unable to defend against it at all and violently vomited a mouthful of blood. It transformed into a mist in the air. The Chaotic Body he relied most upon was already shattered, with a cavity appearing on his chest. Through the hole, the scenery behind Jian Chen could actually be seen.
The powerful force directly caused Jian Chen to smash into the ground, creating a great crater below. He sank deeply into the ground.
The Gilligan clan member slowly floated down. He observed Jian Chen who was imbedded deeply in the crater with a cold gaze and mumbled, “This kid is not normal. Not only does the power he control is powerful and weird, even his body is abnormal. Since a grievance has already been formed between us today, I can’t leave you alive. Otherwise, when you become strong, you’ll look for me for revenge. Whatever, since I’ve already stepped into the Tian Yuan Continent, I might as well just eliminate you and prevent some future trouble. Having you mature would be bad.” The Gilligan clan member gently waved his hand, and the still-sleeping tiger cub immediately floated out from the crater. It immediately flew towards the magical beast. At the same time, a great power had already coalesced in his right hand, ready to end what he started and properly kill off Jian Chen.
However, just when the tiger cub began approached the Gilligan clan member, a shadow appeared in the originally brightly-lit sky.
