Chapter 40 – Lee Chang Hao
The man took out a shining blade and placed it against Wang Ting’s neck.
“Jiang Chen, these four men are the mercenaries who followed you! I wonder if you are willing to see them die in front of you just because of your own decisions.”
Lee Shan Yue looked at Jiang Chen with a malicious smile.
Yan Meng shouted out in disgust. This matter had nothing to do with Wang Ting and the other three men. The four of them were innocent and shouldn’t be involved in this. Yan Meng had fought and gone through life and death situations together with them, and if they die in front of him, he will also suffer.
“Haha, Lee Shan Yue, kill us if you want to. You have erroneously estimated the importance of our friend! Brother Jiang Chen and I have barely met before this, and we never had a close friendship. Your plan of using us to threaten Brother Jiang Chen is not going to work!”
Wang Ting laughed out loud. The sharp blade had left a cut on his neck, and he was bleeding. However, he didn’t show a single sign of fear, just this daring attitude alone made the people around him give him a thumbs up. He really was a tough guy.
“Kill us if you want! If I even move my brows, I will be the son of a tortoise!”
“My life was saved by Brother Jiang Chen. Because of him, I was able to live two more days, and I’ve earned enough!”
“Brother Jiang Chen, I’m Niu Meng, and I was the one who told them your name… I’m sorry!”
The other three men were man enough to not show any fear at all. As a mercenary, every single one of them was a tough guy. Those who walk the mercenary path were destined to die someday, and when they chose this path they had already prepared for the worst. When the day finally arrived, they would not need to show any fear at all.
“Good, since you are all so tough, I will grant you your wishes. Kill them now!”
Lee Shan Yue strengthened his spirit and said coldly.
Jiang Chen shouted. He took two steps forward, and with a cold expression on his face he said, “Lee Shan Yue, as the chief of the Lee family, one of the greatest powers in Red city, how can you use such a despicable trick when dealing with a young man like me? Disgraceful isn’t enough to describe you.”
The smile on Lee Shan Yue’s face froze. What Jiang Chen said was right, someone with his status using such a trick really was disgraceful.
“Brother Jiang Chen, you are safe as long as you stay in the Misty Rain Tower. There’s no need for you to risk your life for someone like us! Your life is much more precious than ours!”
Wang Ting said.
“I am not a great man, but I would never let someone innocent suffer because of me. I would never let anyone face the consequences that are mine alone.”
Jiang Chen said casually. There was not really much sentiment between Wang Ting and Jiang Chen. They had just met not long before this, and their lives had nothing to do with him. However, the current situation was different. What happened to them now was all because of Jiang Chen, this was why he had to save them.
“Enough nonsense. Jiang Chen, come forward and face your death. After that I’ll let them go!”
Lee Shan Yue shouted coldly.
“Lee Shan Yue, you really don’t give a shit about your reputation anymore. As the chief of the Lee family, how can you threaten a young man with such a disgraceful tactic?”
Yan Zhan Yun walked beside Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen had just saved Yan Chen Yu. He was the savior of the Yan family, and he cannot let anything bad happen to his savior. He had to protect Jiang Chen’s safety today, even if the cost was the lives of four mercenaries.
“That’s right. This tactic is too mean, and it just doesn’t fit with Chief Lee’s status.”
“True, someone like Lee Shan Yue should use another tactic for revenge. He’s just a young man.”
The crowd started discussing this, and the discussion increased in volume.
This was what a famous person needed to face in Red city. Lee Shan Yue was someone famous, and his actions represented the Lee family.
Lee Shan Yue furrowed his brows. He never expected the situation to become like this. It looked like if he really wanted to kill Wang Ting and the other three men, his reputation would be damaged. This was not a good thing for the Lee family in Red city’s future.
“Chief Lee, why don’t you let your son fight Jiang Chen? If your son can kill Jiang Chen, then you will have your revenge.”
Someone from the crowd suggested.
“That’s right. This is a good idea, let us all see a fight between geniuses.”
More and more people immediately started agreeing with the idea. Those who enjoyed a good show would never be bored with more entertainment. Everyone wanted to know what skills Jiang Chen had, how he was able to kill Lee Chang Hong, and why he was respected by the Misty Rain Tower so much.
Hearing the suggestion, Lee Shan Yue looked at the young man who stood beside him.
Lee Shan Yue had three sons, and they were all geniuses. The eldest son was Lee Chang Ming, and the second son was Lee Chang Hao. They had both reached the late Qi Hai realm at a young age. Lee Chang Ming was cultivating behind closed doors and was trying to form his Mortal Core, and the youngest son, Lee Chang Hong, was killed by Jiang Chen in Fragrant Sky city. The young man who stood beside Lee Shan Yue was his second son, Lee Chang Hao.
Lee Chang Hao curved his lips a little, and with a proud expression he took a step forward. He pointed his finger towards Jiang Chen and spoke with an arrogant tone, “Jiang Chen, someone told me that you killed my brother in a deathmatch! Today, I’ll kill you in a deathmatch as well in order to avenge my brother. I wonder, do you dare to accept this challenge?”
Lee Shan Yue looked at Jiang Chen with a cold smile on his face. He also thought that this was a good idea. He didn’t know what tricks Jiang Chen was using, so he couldn’t really find out what his current level was. According to what he knew, when Jiang Chen was fighting with Lee Chang Hong he was only a ninth level Qi Jing warrior, and now he was barely at the early Qi Hai realm. Although he had some great combat strength, Lee Chang Hao could easily defeat him.
Although Jiang Chen was able to kill Mu Rong Zhan, there was no way for Mu Rong Zhan to compare to Lee Chang Hao. Yes, both of them were at the late Qi Hai realm, but there was nothing about them that could be compared. Lee Chang Hao was a young genius. He had great potential and cannot be compared with anyone at the same level as him. Furthermore, Lee Chang Hao possessed great skill, killing a small potato like Jiang Chen was not a big deal. With this, the Lee family’s reputation would be preserved.
Everyone was looking at Jiang Chen and wondering if he dared to accept the challenge.
Hearing what Lee Chang Hao said, Jiang Chen laughed out and asked, “Are you sure you want to have a deathmatch with me?”
Jiang Chen really thought that he was reminding Lee Chang Hao for his own good. He almost told Lee Chang Hao, ‘Kid, please wake up. A death match is not some fun game. If you die here, there won’t be any method to resurrect you.’
“Why? Do you not dare to accept the challenge?”
Lee Chang Hao expressed his pride and arrogance while looking at Jiang Chen sideways.
“Set the four of them free first, then I’ll accept the challenge.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Brother Jiang Chen, please consider carefully. Lee Shan Yue had three sons, but Lee Chang Hong is nothing compared to the other two. They are both geniuses. This young man in front is his second son, Lee Chang Hao, and he is an upper tier Qi Hai warrior.”
Yan Zhan Yun reminded Jiang Chen.
“Brother Jiang, Lee Chang Hao has great combat strength, even I don’t have any confidence in defeating him. It’s a great risk for you to accept his deathmatch challenge.”
Yan Yang reminded Jiang Chen.
“Don’t worry. With so many people watching us, if I reject the challenge that won’t look good either.”
Jiang Chen shrugged his shoulders with a casual look on his face. This was an offer sent to his doorstep. Lee Shan Yue must be thinking that he had too many sons, so he wanted to give one to Jiang Chen.
On the other side, Lee Shan Yue waved his hand and signaled his men to release Wang Ting and the other three men. Yang Meng immediately walked towards them and brought them over to the Yan family.
The crowd moved and left a huge empty area for the deathmatch. The fighting stage was pretty far away from here, and it was much easier to just have the deathmatch right here.
“Come on Jiang Chen, let me see what kind of abilities you have! Today I will kill you and avenge my brother!”
Lee Chang Hao walked to the center of the empty area. His yellow robe was fluttering without any wind blowing on it, and his face was filled with confidence. He never really took Jiang Chen seriously because not only did he have great combat strength, he also had a powerful hidden technique. Today, Jiang Chen must die!
“Brother Jiang Chen, please be careful.”
Yan Zhan Yun reminded Jiang Chen again.
Jiang Chen nodded his head before he started walking with big strides. He arrived opposite of Lee Chang Hao.
Lee Chang Hao strengthened his spirit as he unleashed his Yuan power. He suddenly struck a punch, and bright sparks could be seen on his fist. The Yuan energy was as sharp as a blade, and the friction between the air and the punch produced loud exploding sounds.
The power of a late Qi Hai warrior was being shown completely. Lee Chang Hao was just measuring his opponent, and he was already showing such great power. The Red city genius was indeed ferocious.
Jiang Chen shook his head. Lee Chang Hao was really more powerful than Mu Rong Zhan… But unfortunately, Jiang Chen was no longer an early Qi Hai warrior. He had broken through to the mid Qi Hai realm. Any Qi Hai warrior in front of him was just too weak.
Jiang Chen attacked with his palm. There were tornadoes formed by the Yuan energy in his palm as it clashed with Lee Chang Hao’s fist. Jiang Chen only used half of his strength with this attack. He had formed five Dragon Marks by now. If he used his full strength, he would have killed Lee Chang Hao with a single punch. But, Jiang Chen didn’t want to leave a huge impact today, which was why he only used half of his strength.
The fist and the palm clashed, producing the sound of colliding metals. Lee Chang Hao’s Yuan energy was shattered into pieces by Jiang Chen, and he was forced back by the great amount of strength. He only took a few steps back before he stabilized himself. He could feel his whole arm becoming numb, and that feeling was really awful.
“This Jiang Chen is really not an ordinary man. He forced Lee Chang Hao back with just one attack!”
“He looked delicate just like a young man from some rich family. Never did anyone expect him to have such powerful strength. But Lee Chang Hao was only measuring his opponent, and he didn’t really use any combat skills. The victor is still unknown.”
Everyone was shocked. No one would have ever expected Jiang Chen to have such an advantage over Lee Chang Hao or the capability of forching him back with just a single attack.
Yan Zhan Yun shouted loudly.
“Hmph! Hao’er, don’t hold anything back. Kill him quickly!”
Lee Shan Yue said with a thunderous face.
Lee Chang Hao swung his arm, the look of despise in his eyes gone. He put both his palms together and gathered his Yuan energy before instantly pointing out a finger.
A light yellow finger appeared, the friction between this and the air producing a loud noise. The huge finger was one meter tall, and it was crashing into everything along its way.
“Brother Jiang, this is the Heavenly Yellow Finger of the Lee family. Lee Chang Hao has practiced it really well! You have to be careful!”
Yan Yang reminded Jiang Chen.
A curve appeared on Jiang Chen’s lips, and he smiled coldly. He had seen this Heavenly Yellow Finger back in Fragrant Sky city when he was fighting Lee Chang Hong. If it was compared to his Single Solar Finger, it would just be too weak.
However, this Heavenly Yellow Finger was much stronger when released by Lee Chang Hao, but Jiang Chen never really cared much about it.
Jiang Chen looked relaxed and casual while facing the incoming attack. When it almost reached him, he struck out a punch in an unstoppable manner.
