Chapter 258 – Those Who Attacked My Sect Will Be Killed Without Mercy!
The excitement these men felt were instantly killed off, and a shadow was cast above their minds. Even more so for Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan. Both of them were disciples of the Black Sect, so their feelings towards the sect was much stronger compared to the others. At this moment, when their own sect was in a life and death crisis, it was impossible for them to stay free of worries.
“Junior disciple Guan, who is that Nanbei Chao? I’ve never heard of this man before.”
Tian Yishan asked as he furrowed his brows.
“He came out of nowhere during this year’s Qi Province competition and claimed to be the number one genius in the Qi Province. During the Qi Province competition, he alone defeated all number one geniuses from the other three big sects, and even I couldn’t withstand a single blow from him. I never thought Nanbei Chao could progress so quickly and break through to the Mid Divine Core realm.”
Guan Yiyun said with a bitter look on his face. The reason why he went to Inferno Hell was because he didn’t want there to be a big gap between himself and Nanbei Chao. But, judging from the current situation, it seemed like the gap between them had become greater and greater. Although Guan Yiyun was also a Mid Divine Core warrior, compared to Nanbei Chao who was an abnormal monster, they were on completely different level.
“I don’t know how someone like that can be found in the Qi Province…”
Tian Yishan said with mixed emotions.
“During the Qi Province competition, Nanbei Chao wasn’t the only rising star, we also had junior disciple Jiang. Junior disciple Jiang was only an Early Mortal Core warrior back then, and he was able to defeat every single disciple from all four big sects and become number one in the competition. Also, he made an agreement with Nanbei Chao to fight one year from then. Half a year has passed, and junior disciple Jiang has broken through to the Early Divine Core realm, and he even has the ability to kill Late Divine Core warriors. Even that Shangguan Wei was no match for him. I’m sure his full combat strength is not any less than that of Nanbei Chao. With that being said, junior disciple Jiang’s talent is much greater than Nanbei Chao’s talent.”
Guan Yiyun had similar mixed emotions. They were considered geniuses as well, but if compared to the abnormal monsters, Nanbei Chao and Jiang Chen, it sounded like their genius title was worthless.
“Looks like the one-year fight is going to happen ahead of schedule. Sine junior disciple Jiang has returned, he and Nanbei Chao are definitely going to fight today, and it will be a battle of life and death. Let’s speed up, even if we can’t catch up to Jiang Chen, we still have to rush back and help.”
Guan Yiyun told everyone to hurry up. They all increased their speed to the maximum, transforming into a few beams of lights as they sped toward the Black Sect.
Back in the Black Sect, the violent war was still in progress. Blood-curdling screeches and blood spilling around made the music of slaughter appear. From time to time, dead bodies would fall down from the skies, and the mountain peaks underneath the battlefield were continuously being shattered by the devastating energies. All the Mortal Core and Qi Hai disciples could only run around for their lives with sad and angry expressions. At this moment where their beloved sect was in crisis, none of them could do anything to help, they could only hide themselves to avoid getting killed. This kind of feeling was really awful. They really wished they could fight the Mortal Core disciples of the Burning Sky Pavilion, and even the Heavenly Sword Sect. But too bad, none of them were here.
Fan Zhongtang unleashed a powerful skill. He slammed his palm onto Yuan Lei’s chest, knocking him away. After that, he threw his glance at a remote mountain peak.
“Guo Shan, I am going to completely kill you today! I will also destroy Yan Chenyu and Han Yan’s bodies! I want that Jiang Chen to feel regret for the rest of his life!”
Fan Zhongtang shouted out loudly when he saw Yu Zihan bringing the Guo Shan who was in a come back to his mountain peak.
“Hurry up, stop him!”
Daoist Black who was intensely fighting with Zhao Chongyang roared out loudly. Because of Fan Zhongtang and his grandson, Yan Chenyu and Han Yan had suffered serious injuries and torture. This had caused Daoist Black to feel guilty when thinking about Jiang Chen. If he couldn’t protect Yan Chenyu and Han Yan today, even if Daoist Black was killed, he wouldn’t be able to die in peace.
Yuan Lei let out a furious roar. He ignored his own injuries as he sped up and stopped Fan Zhongtang. Right at this moment, none of the great warriors from the Black Sect and Valley of Happiness had a chance to help. All of them were even unable to fend for themselves. They were all on the receiving ends in their fights, and if this situation carried on, sooner or later all of them would be killed by their opponent.
“Yuan Lei, since you’re courting death, I will now grant you your wish!”
Fan Zhongtang shouted. A bright longsword suddenly appeared in his hand, and without any delay, he forcefully swung it at Yuan Lei.
Both earth and sky were endlessly trembling. Blood filled the entire battlefield, and one of the Divine Core Sect Elders from the Valley of Happiness had been killed by a warrior from the Burning Sky Pavilion. At this point of time, many casualties occurred amongst the Divine Core warriors.
For the Black Sect and Valley of Happiness, casualties like this were devastating. Once the amount of strong warriors were reduced, that was the moment of their elimination. Besides that, Nanbei Chao hadn’t even attacked yet. Daoist Black and Granny Feng were both struggling with their fights. But luckily, the elders of the Heavenly Sword Sect didn’t seem to be fighting with all their strength. This actually gave them some room to breathe.
A Divine Core Sect Elder from the Black Sect let out a miserable shriek right before he died.
The situation on the battlefield was getting more and more violent. Huge casualties were suffered in the battle between the Heavenly Core inner circle disciples. A long open wound could be found on Wang Yun’s chest, and he was still fighting as his blood splashed around.
Following the death of each Divine Core warrior, despair filled the hearts of the disciples from the Black Sect and Valley of Happiness. All of them knew that after today’s war, the Black Sect and Valley of Happiness would only exist in history, and all of them would be dead. The despair weakened their fighting spirit.
“Argh!! Daddy will fight it out with you!”
An inner circle disciple from the Black Sect let out a ground shaking roar the moment his opponent impaled his body with a longsword. Using the last strength he had, he pierced his combat weapon into his opponent’s body. Both men died at the same time.
“Looks like the heavens wants to eliminate the Black Sect.”
Tears flowed down from Daoist Black’s eyes. He knew the Black Sect was finished; its hundred year old legacy would be destroyed in his hand. It wasn’t hard to imagine how he felt right now, every single dead elder and disciple were like a sharp blade poking his heart, causing his heart to be filled with miserable pain.
Misery, despair, unwillingness, anger, all sorts of negative emotions filled the hearts of every single elder and disciple of the Black Sect. They had completely given up all their open. The deaths of their fellow disciples, the shattered mountain peaks; the homes where they had live for so many years… right now, their home was being destroyed, and shadows had been cast upon their hearts. With this, many men had given up fighting back, and just stood still, waiting for death to save them from this misery.
On the other side, Fan Zhongtang had sliced Yuan Lei’s arm off with his sword, and knocked the severely wounded Yuan Lei far away with his energy. After that, he turned into a trail of light as he sped over to Guo Shan’s mountain peak.
“Traitor, what are you trying to do?!”
When Yu Zihan saw Fan Zhongtang, his expression immediately changed.
“What I’m trying to do? I am going to kill that old fool Guo Shan, destroy Han Yan and Yan Chenyu’s dead bodies, I want revenge for my grandson! Yu Zihan, I will kill you first if you get in my way!”
Fan Zhongtang said with a grin on his face.
“Fan Zhongtang, are you really not afraid of Jiang Chen? He will come back and get revenge for everything, I’m sure you know his approach!”
Yu Zihan said in a cold manner.
“Hmph! Do not try to use that little bastard to scare me! That little bastard is lucky he isn’t here today, otherwise he would be dead for sure!”
Fan Zhongtang let out a cold snort. Without hesitation, he took a step forward and unleashed powerful energy which crashed toward Yu Zihan.
Although Yu Zihan tried his best to defend, he was after all only an Early Divine Core warrior. The gap between him and Fan Zhongtang was huge. In an instant, blood burst out from his mouth because of the tremendous force, and his face instantly became pale white.
“Only over my dead body will you be able to touch Yan Chenyu and Han Yan!”
Yu Zihan was a man with courage. He grit his teeth, and he didn’t move a single inch before Guo Shan.
“Then, I will smash you into pieces.”
Fan Zhongtang threw his hand out and grabbed toward Yu Zihan. If this strike really hit Yu Zihan, he would definitely shatter into pieces.
“Brother Jiang, I tried my best, I hope you don’t blame me…”
A smile appeared on Yu Zihan’s face as he waited for death’s arrival.
A crystal clear bone cracking sound suddenly sounded out in front of Yu Zihan, and a painful scream followed the next second. Yu Zihan was shocked, he suddenly discovered a man standing in front of him, and the painful scream came from Fan Zhongtang.
“Old fool, I knew you were up to no good! How dare you hurt my brother?! I, Jiang Chen will let you know the taste of utter misery!”
This man who suddenly appeared was none other than Jiang Chen; he had finally returned. With his hand, he crushed Fan Zhongtang’s arm. With his current combat strength, Fan Zhongtang was like an ant in front of him; he could kill him anytime he wanted.
Sweat filled Fan Zhongtang’s forehead. With extreme shock, he stared at Jiang Chen who had suddenly appeared. What made him shocked was Jiang Chen’s current cultivation level. It caused him to feel terror from the bottom of his heart.
“Brother Jiang, you’re finally back!”
Yu Zihan was so excited he nearly started jumping. Seeing Jiang Chen at this moment made him happier than seeing his own father. Perhaps only this man in front of Yu Zihan could solve the Black Sect’s crisis.
“Zihan, I’m late. Sorry for letting you and brother Guo suffer.”
Jiang Chen said with a faint voice. He had seen Guo Shan lying on the ground in a coma, and the fury in his eyes was burning hot; he couldn’t control it any longer.
“Not late, it’s not late at all!”
Yu Zihan said with a smile. He was so happy that tears flowed down from his face, “If this old bastard Fan Zhongtang hadn’t suddenly betrayed us, the Black Formation could still last for a long time! Because of him, Sect Chief and all Divine Core warriors suffered from the formation’s backlash, all of them were injured.”
Jiang Chen grabbed Fan Zhongtang’s other arm and shattered it in an instant.
“I won’t let you die so easily, I will keep you alive, and let Sect Chief kill you himself!”
Jiang Chen said with a cruel expression. He shattered both of Fan Zhongtang’s arms and legs, then threw him onto the ground like a crippled man, “Zihan, help me watch this old dog. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth; those whose hands are stained with the blood of the Black Sect shall die!”
Jiang Chen was furious, the scene in front of him had ignited flames in the bottom of his heart. In an instant, he flew high up into the sky and shouted out loudly with the Sonic Hawk Cry, “I, Jiang Chen have returned! Those who attacked my sect will be killed without any mercy!”
