Chapter 266 – Saving Han Yan
Following Jiang Chen’s orders, the entire Black Sect became busy. A majority of the people had suffered from different degrees of injuries during the war, and some of the Divine Core elders were in pretty bad condition. For example, Yuan Lei had lost one arm, and it would take him at least 2-3 months to fully recover. Also, his cultivation would most likely stop at the Mid Divine Core realm because of it.
After the war, the first step was for everyone to heal up. Daoist Black had taken out the entire stock of healing pills and given them to all the disciples and elders.
In addition, there were dead bodies scattered around everywhere, and each of these dead bodies carried a storage ring. The wealth within these rings was simply amazing.
After going through this catastrophe, the Black Sect had transformed from its roots, and the overall strength of the entire sect had risen to a very high level. At this moment, Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan had brought a group of people and gone to the Burning Sky Pavilion and Heavenly Sword Sect to take control of everything. As for the others, after harvesting all the wealth of the dead, it was time for the outer circle disciples to do some work. They were tasked to collect the dead bodies of their fellow disciples and elders, then have them buried properly. As for the bodies of their enemies, they would just burn them to ashes on the spot.
Everyone were busy with their own matters. Some were busy healing themselves, and some were cleaning the place up. Jiang Chen didn’t bother with any of this; he now had all his attention fixed onto Guo Shan.
On Guo Shan’s mountain peak, Jiang Chen placed Guo Shan inside a room. He had obtained the Earth Devil’s devil soul, but he didn’t immediately go to heal Han Yan. Han Yan had the bloodline of the Ancient Divine Devil in his body, and with the help of the Blood Banner, he was in a stable condition where no accidents would happen in the near future. Guo Shan’s condition was bad, and Jiang Chen couldn’t wait any longer with that. If he wasn’t healed in time, his condition would probably become worse than Han Yan’s. Han Yan did after all have the support of the Ancient Divine Devil’s bloodline, whereas Guo Shan just possessed a mere mortal’s bloodline.
“Brother Jiang, how is Sect Elder Guo?”
Yu Zihan asked.
“Don’t worry, he’s much better compared to Little Yu and Brother Yan.”
Jiang Chen replied with a smile. As long as he got the heart of the energy vein, not only would Guo Shan fully recover, he would also obtain great advantages.
Not long after that, Daoist Black returned. He held a fist-sized translucent crystal in his hand. This crystal was the heart of the energy vein, and it contained the source essence of the entire energy vein.
After the energy vein’s heart was taken out, everyone could clearly feel the natural Yuan energy in the Black Mountain Range slowly dissipating. According to this speed, it would take at most one month before all the energy contained within the energy vein was completely depleted, and the Black Mountain Range would return to just a normal mountain range.
“Jiang Chen, here is the heart of the energy vein.”
Daoist Black handed the energy vein’s heart over to Jiang Chen.
“The energy vein was formed by the condensation of natural essences; not only does it contain a vast amount of energy, it also represents great fortune. I’ll feed older brother Guo this energy vein’s heart together with some other healing pills; not only will that help Guo Shan fully recover, it will also help improve his constitution. His cultivation will also increase at an incredible speed.”
Jiang Chen explained. As the once greatest Saint underneath the heavens, he knew better than anyone else how to save a man.
“If that is the case, hurry up and save Sect Elder Guo’s life.”
Daoist Black said.
“Sect Chief, I can see you suffered some serious injuries as well. Why don’t you just go back and heal yourself? Don’t worry about anything here.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile on his face. He could tell that Daoist Black was in a bad condition right now. Also, there wasn’t much Daoist Black could do to help here.
Daoist Black nodded his head, then he turned around and left.
“Big Yellow, you and Yu Zihan just stay outside. I’ll have to help older brother Guo absorb this energy vein’s heart.”
Jiang Chen turned to Big Yellow and Yu Zihan.
“Damn you, me again?”
Big Yellow murmured as he walked out from the room.
“Big Yellow, you’ve done great work this time, you showed us all your incredible mightiness! Even the Heavenly Sword Sect’s Sect Chief, Duan Jianhong was defeated by you! You have my deepest respect!”
Outside the room, Yu Zihan cupped his fist toward Big Yellow, expressing his admiration.
“Wahaha, Yu Zihan, you have a brilliant way of looking at things! This master dog hasn’t really showed all my mightiness yet! Come, let this master dog tell you all about what happened back in Inferno Hell…”
Big Yellow would definitely accept all kinds of flattery underneath the heavens. Yu Zihan’s flattering speech almost made Big Yellow burst with joy. He immediately pulled Yu Zihan aside and began talking endless about his heroic adventures back in Inferno Hell.
Back in the room, Jiang Chen held the energy vein’s heart in his hand. At the same time, he took out a few healing pills from his storage ring and placed them together with the energy vein’s heart.
Jiang Chen let out a light shout. A powerful force burst out from both his palms and engulfed the energy vein’s heart and all the pills. With a powerful squeezing forces, the heart and pills shattered and transformed into bright lights.
Jiang Chen waved his hand and unleashed a barrier with his Yuan energy. He covered Guo Shan’s body with this barrier, as well as the bright lights that were originally the energy vein’s heart and the healing pills.
Buzzing sounds could be heard from within the barrier. Under Jiang Chen’s control, the essences of the healing pills and the energy vein’s heart slowly penetrated into Guo Shan’s body.
Jiang Chen did it all slowly. Guo Shan was in a coma right now, and he had no consciousness at the moment. If Jiang Chen injected everything into Guo Shan’s body in one go, Guo Shan would be unable to withstand the violent impact.
Even with this slow pace, Guo Shan’s body could be seen lightly trembling. After trembling for nearly twenty minutes, Guo Shan let out a groan and slowly opened his eyes. What he could see was a dazzling colorful light in front of him, and his body was filled with energy. Shock struck his mind, as he didn’t what his current condition was like. But there was one thing he knew, the energy in his body was constantly healing his injuries.
“Don’t move. Focus your mind and control these energies, try your best to absorb as much as you can.”
Jiang Chen’s voice reached Guo Shan’s ears.
“Brother, it’s you.”
Hearing Jiang Chen’s voice, Guo Shan immediately became agitated. He knew Jiang Chen would return no matter what, and since it was Jiang Chen who was healing him right now, it meant that the Black Sect’s crisis had been resolved, as well as his life.
Guo Shan was curious about what happened after he entered the coma, but he knew Jiang Chen was in the middle of healing him, and this was the most crucial moment. Therefore, he didn’t ask anything. It wouldn’t be too late to ask after he had fully recovered.
Guo Shan had regained his consciousness, this allowed him to control the energy in his body. Therefore, Jiang Chen sped up his pace, crazily injecting the energies of the healing pills and the energy vein’s heart into Guo Shan’s body.
“What energy is this? Not only do they contain strong healing powers, there is also a vast amount of source energy which helps me heal my injuries at an incredible speed! At the same time, it’s also improving my constitution. With this, my constitution is going to experience a tremendous transformation."
Guo Shan became really excited.
With a solemn look in his eyes, Jiang Chen unleashed bright energies with both his hands, and turning those bright energies into bright circles which covered Guo Shan, and eventually turned into a cocoon. After that, he put his hands down.
“Older brother Guo, take your time to absorb all the energies. I’ll go check on Brother Yan.”
Jiang Chen said as he stood up. Guo Shan’s condition was currently nothing much to worry about, all he needed to do now was to slowly absorb all the energies.
“Alright. Thank you for saving me, brother.”
Guo Shan’s voice sounded out from within the cocoon.
“There’s no need for formalities.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile as he walked out from the room. Guo Shan was his own brother, that’s why he would try his best to save his life; this was part of the ideals of justice that existed within his heart, it was something unique to him, and it was what made him different from Nanbei Chao.
Nanbei Chao was too proud of himself. In his heart, there was only himself. He considered himself an emperor who sat high above all, and believes that all mortal should bow in front of him. Therefore, a man like him would never have any friends. Jiang Chen never admired his nobility for a second, he actually felt pity for Nanbei Chao, even though he had the powerful Immortal Spirit Body.
Guo Shan had placed Han Yan in a sealed secret chamber. When Jiang Chen entered the secret chamber, he immediately felt steaming devilish energies hovering above the huge Blood Banner, and the foul spirits were violently roaring. Han Yan’s body was inside the Blood Banner.
Jiang Chen extended his hand and performed a grabbing motion. As if sensing Jiang Chen’s summoning, the Blood Banner immediately flew into Jiang Chen’s hand. With a flip of his hand, Jiang Chen placed the Blood Banner into his storage ring; then he walked in front of Han Yan.
Underneath Han Yan’s body there was a round cushion, and Han Yan was quietly lying on it with his eyes tightly shut. His handsome face seemed threatening even when he saw in a coma.
“My brother, sorry for keeping you waiting.”
A gentle smile emerged on Jiang Chen’s face as he looked at Han Yan. Han Yan was his first brother after his reincarnation, he was a brother who had proven to be willing to give up his life for Jiang Chen.
“Since people keep calling you Little Devil King, you will be a real devil king in the future.”
Jiang Chen smiled. He took out the Earth Devil’s devil soul from his storage ring. Healing Han Yan was much easier than healing Guo Shan and Yan Chenyu, he only needed to feed him the Earth Devil’s devil soul. With the powerful devilish characteristic of the Earth Devil’s devil soul, he would be able to completely awaken the Ancient Divine Devil bloodline that is slumbering within Han Yan’s body. At that point of time, under the impact of the two devilish characteristics, Han Yan’s destroyed viscera would be able to completely recover, and he would be revived with a new form of life.
“A Combat Soul Earth Devil, I wonder how much stronger you will become after completely absorbing it.”
Jiang Chen said with mixed emotions. The Combat Soul Earth Devil combined with the completely Ancient Divine Devil’s bloodline, it was really difficult to imagine how strong Han Yan would become once he awakened. But, according to Jiang Chen’s estimation, once Han Yan awakens, he would at least be a Late Divine Core warrior.
The impact of this was simply going to be huge. Furthermore, if anyone tried to consume a Combat Soul Earth Devil’s devil soul directly, just the massive energy contained within the devil soul alone would cause the person’s body to explode in an instant.
But Han Yan was not an ordinary person, he possessed the complete bloodline of the Ancient Divine Devil, and he bore the will of the Ancient Divine Devil; he could completely control the massive energy contained within the Earth Devil’s devil soul and absorb all the energies, as well as the devilish characteristic source into his own body. With that, he would definitely become a real devil king, and not just a man with the name Little Devil King.
While holding the Earth Devil’s devil soul, Jiang Chen walked closer to Han Yan.
