Chapter 42 – Double Whammy
Everyone’s faces changed dramatically. Lee Shan Yue also shouted out. Unfortunately, however, Jiang Chen’s speed was too fast. Even with the strength of his Mortal Core, he didn’t have enough time to stop Jiang Chen.
The beam on Jiang Chen’s finger was swung like a sharp blade. Lee Chang Hao responded quickly and turned his body to the side in order to avoid being cut into half while at the same time preparing to block the attack with the Black Soul Ripper.
Regrettably, he was still too slow.
A slashing sound was heard. Jiang Chen’s beam had hit Lee Chan Hao’s wrist. His Yuan power was unsuccessful in blocking the attack, and the Black Soul Ripper was also too late. Both his hands were cut off by Jiang Chen, and the Black Soul Ripper fell down onto the ground. Blood was spraying out from where his hands used to be like a water fountain.
The severe pain from having his hands removed made Lee Chang Hao scream out loud, but Jiang Chen never cared about that. Jiang Chen lifted his arm and prepared to slap him.
A crystal-clear slap was heard. Lee Chang Hao fell onto the ground.
Jiang Chen raised his feet up and stepped onto Lee Chang Hao’s face. He rubbed his foot onto Lee Chang Hao’s face, and Lee Chang Hao, who was under the foot, couldn’t escape no matter how much he struggled. He could only scream in pain.
Silent, the whole place was dead silent. Who could have ever imagined that it would end like this? Who could have ever thought that even with a low rank combat weapon, Lee Chang Hao would still be defeated by Jiang Chen in a few seconds.
Everyone was still trying to comprehend Jiang Chen’s movements just now. There were so many people around, yet no one could really see how Jiang Chen had avoided Lee Chang Hao’s unavoidable attack.
“Let go of my son!”
Lee Shan Yue finally reacted. He shouted furiously towards Jiang Chen. If it wasn’t for his son being under Jiang Chen’s foot and Jiang Chen’s ability to kill him at any time, he would have been ripping Jiang Chen into pieces by now.
Everyone from the Lee family was furious. They had never expected that Jiang Chen would be so strong that Lee Chang Hao, who was at the late Qi Hai realm and who had the help of a low rank combat weapon, would be defeated by him. This was just too horrifying.
“Let him go? Are you kidding me. Don’t forget, this is a death match.”
Jiang Chen looked at the worried Lee Shan Yue with a cold smile on his face, continually rubbing his foot over Lee Chang Hao’s face.
“Little bastard! If you dare touch my son again, I’ll rip you into pieces!”
Lee Shan Yue almost lost control. The ugly scar on his face was trembling and looked frightening. He had lost one son, and if he lost another one he would become insane. More importantly, if Lee Chang Hao was killed in front of him, that would be like slapping his face in front of a large crowd.
“Lee Shan Yue is angry, but I thought that they had agreed that Lee Chang Hao and Jiang Chen would be fighting until one of them dies.”
“I guess Jiang Chen doesn’t dare kill Lee Chang Hao. No one would ever dare kill Lee Shan Yue’s son right in front of his eyes.”
“It’s hard to say. In my eyes, Jiang Chen is crazy, and he might just really kill him. Besides, both parties are like fire and water. Even if Jiang Chen let's Lee Chang Hao go, Lee Shan Yue wouldn’t let him go.”
Everyone was discussing and whispering to each other. All of them now looked at Jiang Chen in a different light. Today’s fight had made this unknown youngster famous in this city.
No one from the Yan family spoke a word. What they needed to do now was to support Jiang Chen and protect him. After knowing Jiang Chen for two days they had come to understand that Jiang Chen was a man with set opinions. Whether he wanted to kill Lee Chang Hao or not, there was no way for them to affect his decision. Even the threats from Lee Shan Yue wouldn’t affect anything.
The fact was, the once greatest Saint in the world had never been afraid of threats. When Lee Shan Yue threatened Jiang Chen, he didn’t care at all. In fact, Lee Shan Yue’s threats were like farts to him.
Jiang Chen never even took a look at the angry Lee Shan Yue. The force he was applying with his foot increasingly strengthened until Lee Chang Hao’s skull produced a cracking sound; this was the sound of bones cracking. Blood was covering his face, and his scream became even more horrifying.
“Bastard! Jiang Chen, I’ll skin you alive!”
Lee Shan Yue was like a raging lion. He was extremely furious, but he didn’t dare move forward. He was scared that Jiang Chen would kill Lee Chang Hao instantly if he stepped forward.
“Skin me alive? Why don’t I skin him first?”
Jiang Chen stomped the ground so hard that the Black Soul Ripper bounced up into the air, grabbing the blade casually.
“This blade isn’t bad, it shall be the reward of this fight. As for Lee Chang Hao, a death match means that someone has to die.”
Jiang Chen said indifferently. The tip of the Black Soul Ripper touched Lee Chang Hao’s neck.
The chilling tip of the blade sent shivers down Lee Chang Hao’s spine. At this moment he could clearly feel death.
“No, no, don’t kill me!”
Lee Chang Hao begged with a slurring voice. He didn’t want to die. He was the second son of the Lee family, and he was also a genius in Red city. He had a bright future; he couldn’t die now.
“Jiang Chen, how dare you?”
It seemed like flame was going to come out of Lee Shan Yue’s nose.
The crowds were holding their breaths and guessing in their minds whether or not Jiang Chen was really going to kill Lee Chang Hao.
“Lee Shan Yue, I was told that you had three sons. I’ll kill two of them first.”
Jiang Chen’s face was calm and relaxed, but his actions were merciless. The Black Soul Ripper impaled Lee Chang Hao’s neck, and blood spilled all over the place. Lee Chang Hao struggled for a few seconds before all his movements stopped.
Immediately, the place became dead silent once again. Lee Shan Yue’s eyes were wide open as he looked at what had just happened, stunned.
“Heavens, he really killed Lee Chang Hao!”
“A cruel man, he really is a cruel man. He didn’t even blink when he killed him!”
“The Lee family’s second son was killed in Red city, and it happened right in front of Lee Shan Yue’s face! This is madness!”
Everyone was shocked as they stared at Jiang Chen’s face and his harmless smile. All of them took a deep breath. This youngster has guts of steel.
Lee Shan Yue finally reacted. He raised his head high up and roared out loud. He had become beast-like in his madness. The aura of a Mortal Core warrior spread out like tidal waves. Everyone was having difficulty breathing under such pressure, and those who were standing close to Lee Shan Yue even got pushed onto the ground, vomiting blood.
He was furious. His own son was killed on the spot right in front of him, and anyone who had experienced this would react the same way.
“Brother Jiang Chen, come back now!”
Yan Zhan Yun was prepared. When Lee Shan Yue moved, he had already moved in front of Jiang Chen.
Both of Lee Shan Yue’s eyes were red. He struck his palm forcefully, but Yan Zhan Yun also unleashed his energy and fought back with his palms as well.
The air around them exploded, two of the greatest warriors in Red city were fighting. The collision made the air around them heat up, and those who were watching the fight immediately fell back. The fight between the Mortal Core warriors was too powerful, and just being close to them would cost them their lives.
Jiang Chen stood on the same spot with an indifferent expression. Lee Shan Yue’s power had never frightened him. He was stable like a mountain, as if he didn’t give a shit about his enemy.
“Yan Zhan Yun, move away. Now! This little bastard killed two of my sons, I want to skin him alive today!”
Lee Shan Yue roared out furiously.
“Hmph! Lee Shan Yue, are you planning on losing all dignity? This was a death match, and your son lost. You can only blame his stupidity as he was weak but still wanted to participate. Now, as a Mortal Core warrior, you’re trying to attack someone who is much younger than you? You’re really throwing away all you dignity!”
Yan Zhan Yun let out a cold humph. Of course he wouldn’t move away, Jiang Chen was the savior of the Yan family; he had saved Yan Chen Yu. Even if he had to sacrifice his own life, he would still protect Jiang Chen at all costs.
“Yan Zhan Yun, are you going to move away or not? This is between my Lee family and this little bastard. It has nothing to do with the Yan family!”
Lee Shan Yue clenched his fists so tight that cracking sounds could be heard.
“Jiang Chen’s problems are my problems. If you want to fight, then I will be your opponent!”
Yan Zhan Yun was resolute with his decision. He unleashed his late Mortal Core energy and told everyone that he was going to protect Jiang Chen at all costs.
“Fine! Everyone move, kill Jiang Chen for me!”
Lee Shan Yue couldn’t hold his anger any longer. While ordering his men to attack, he raised his palms and started attacking Yan Zhan Yun.
Just as the men from the Lee family moved, five to six Mortal Core warriors from the Misty Rain Tower moved together and positioned themselves in front of Jiang Chen.
“The Yan family will protect Jiang Chen at all costs, no one can touch him while he’s here!”
Yan Hong Tai unleashed his energy as well. There were more and more men coming out from the Misty Rain Tower. This matter was getting serious.
Six Mortal Core warriors, this was almost all of the strongest warriors from the Yan family. There were only a few men who came from the Lee family, and if they want to fight with the Misty Rain Tower, then it would clearly be a one-sided fight.
“What did this Jiang Chen actually do to the Yan family? How come all the Mortal Core warriors from the Yan family wants to help him?”
“Maybe he cured the young lady’s disease? But, that is impossible. The young lady’s disease is incurable. Many grandmasters have tried, and they all ended up giving up.”
Everyone was shocked. They had initially thought that when the Yan family said they would protect Jiang Chen, it was just a symbolic action. But, now they could see that they really meant it.
The men from the Lee family all changed their expressions. Even Lee Shan Yue stopped his attack. The Yan family’s attitude was something that he had never expected.
“Yan Zhan Yun, are you really going to declare war with my Lee family?”
Lee Shan Yue was a successful man, and he had already regained his rational sense by now.
“If you want a war, then I will fight along… But, I guess turning Red city into a warzone is not something you want to see either.”
Yan Zhan Yun said without taking a single step back.
“Chief, I think we should let him go today. There’s plenty of opportunities to kill that bastard in future.”
A Mortal Core warrior from the Lee family whispered to Lee Shan Yue through his Divine Sense. Looking at how the Yan family was acting, it would be impossible for them to kill Jiang Chen today. Besides, the death match was something that Lee Chang Hao and Jiang Chen had decided on.
Lee Shan Yue’s furious eyes stared at Jiang Chen who was smiling and standing behind all the men. He then looked at Lee Chang Hao who was laying on the ground covered in blood. Although he didn’t want to let Jiang Chen go today, he knew that it would be impossible to kill Jiang Chen today. This place was Misty Rain Tower territory.
“Little bastard, I’ll rip you into pieces sooner or later.”
Lee Shan Yue said coldly. He then turned around and left with his men and Lee Chang Hao’s body.
The crowd were whispering to each other. In today’s fight, Lee Chang Hao had died, and the Lee family had lost a low rank combat weapon, what a double whammy for the Lee family.
As for Jiang Chen’s name, it would soon spread across the city.
