Chapter 268 – Drinking the Dog’s Wine
Hearing this, Guo Shan threw his glance at Yan Chenyu’s room and nodded his head. He knew how important Yan Chenyu was to Jiang Chen. Since Jiang Chen had helped change the entire structure of the Qi Province after returning from Inferno Hell, he had finally found some time to spend with Yan Chenyu. Obviously, Guo Shan wouldn’t go disturb them
“Big Yellow, Zihan, quickly tell me, what happened after I entered a coma? How did you all come back in time? Also, where is that Nanbei Chao now? What is the situation like in the Heavenly Sword Sect and Burning Sky Pavilion?”
Guo Shan sat next to a stone table and immediately began throwing questions. All these questions were the ones he eagerly wanted to know the answer to.
“That goes without saying. Zhao Chongyang and Duan Jianhong have both died, none of those who came to attack the Black Sect survived; all of them died miserable deaths. Also, Nanbei Chao was defeated by Brother Jiang, both his arms were sliced off by Brother Jiang as well. The only regret is that Nanbei Chao eventually escaped. But, I think Brother Jiang has left an eternal shadow within Nanbei Chao’s heart, and it will surely affect his future cultivation.”
Yu Zihan said. When he thought about the battle between Jiang Chen and Nanbei Chao, even if he was just a bystander, his blood couldn’t help but start boiling.
“What? All of them died? Even Zhao Chongyang and Duan Jianhong were killed? Brother Jiang’s cultivation growth is simply amazing! I was still worrying about his one-year fight with Nanbei Chao, I had never thought that with just half a year, he would be able to defeat Nanbei Chao! This is amazing!”
Guo Shan said with mixed emotions. In fact, when he found out that the Black Sect still existed, he had guessed that this was how the war ended. But when he heard what had actually happened, he was still struck with extreme shock.
“That’s right! Brother Jiang is a mighty genius, with only his Early Divine Core cultivation base, he was able to defeat Nanbei Chao who has a Mid Divine Core cultivation base. He can really be considered to be invincible in the Divine Core realm. Perhaps only those Late Divine Core geniuses from some of the big sects would be able to have a match with Brother Jiang, or some extraordinary geniuses from the Martial Palace. Brother Jiang is really the number one genius amongst all warriors the same level as him, I can’t really how strong Brother Jiang will become when he breaks through to the mid, or perhaps even the Late Divine Core realm. At that point of time, perhaps he would be able to fight Combat Soul warriors with no fear.”
Yu Zihan too had mixed emotions. He was also a genius from the younger generation, but the existence of Jiang Chen had caused him to feel a tremendous pressure.
“Now, the overall situation in the Qi Province has settled down. We, the Black Sect has become the biggest victor. From now on, the Qi Province will rule the entire Qi Province!”
Guo Shan said with a smile.
“I think the next Sect Chief will be brother Jiang.”
Yu Zihan said.
“Haha, Zihan, you’re wrong. Do you really think brother Jiang will be limited to this tiny province? He is a true mighty dragon, sooner or later he is going to soar through the horizon. The tiny Qi Province isn’t going to keep him for long.”
Guo Shan let out a hearty laught.
“Oh that’s true! With Brother Jiang’s ability, he will surely become a big shot in the future; he really won’t be limited to becoming the Sect Chief of this tiny Black Sect.”
Yu Zihan replied with a smile as well.
“What you say is correct. Not only is the Black Sect too small, Little Chen wouldn’t even put his mind on becoming the next emperor of the Martial Saint Dynasty.”
Big Yellow said while holding his head up high. He knew Jiang Chen much better than these two men, Jiang Chen’s ambitions was not something Guo Shan and Yu Zihan could ever imagine.
“Oh right, where is that bastard Fan Zhongtang? What did you all do with him?”
When Guo Shan thought about Fan Zhongtang, a fierce look swiftly emerged in his eyes. Not only was the Black Sect nearly eliminated because of his betrayal, Guo Shan was nearly killed by him as well. If not for Jiang Chen returning at the right time, Guo Shan might have already met Yama.
[TL: Yama is the king of hell.]
“I killed him.”
Yu Zihan casually said. He was greatly satisfied about being able to personally kill the traitor.
“So you took all the credit, eh?”
Guo Shan glared at Yu Zihan.
All of a sudden, another deep, yet subtle rumbling sound could be heard. Guo Shan raised his head and saw the dark beam trembling even more violently than before. The rumbling sound was coming from the dark beam. Guo Shan had noticed this dark beam when he emerged from his room, but he hadn’t gotten to ask about it yet.
“It feels like a Devil King is coming! The energy is getting stronger and stronger… I wonder how strong Han Yan will become when he fully awakens.”
Yu Zihan said with mixed emotions. For an entire day, he and Big Yellow had been paying close attention to the dark beam.
“Looks like older brother Jiang has found the Earth Devil’s devil soul. It won’t take long before Han Yan fully awakens. His Ancient Divine Devil bloodline will fully awaken at the same time.”
Guo Shan nodded his head. It wasn’t hard for him to imagine that when Han Yan fully awakened; it would be the same as the birth of another mighty genius.
On the next day, the Black Sect was still incredibly busy. But suddenly, a loud explosive sound that caused the earth to shake was heard. A wave of devilish energies swept across the entire Black Mountain Range, starting from Guo Shan’s mountain peak.
“What a powerful devilish energy! Is senior disciple Han Yan going to awaken now?”
“It really feels like a Devil King is coming, amazing!”
Everyone were shocked. Covered by the devilish energies, many disciples’ souls and hearts trembled.
In the next moment, the devilish energy withdrew, it returned to the secret chamber on Guo Shan’s mountain peak.
A massive force came from the secret chamber, it punched a huge hold in the secret chamber’s solid wall. After that, a sturdy man swiftly jumped into the sky.
Everyone instantly threw their glances at the man. When they sensed the enormous aura that overflowed from the man’s body, they couldn’t help but feel shivers running down their spines.
The young man had a handsome face. He wore a long blue shirt, and his dark hair was fluttering in the breeze. A pair of sharp eyes were coldly flickering, causing those who stared into his eyes to feel a frightening sensation.
This young man was none other than the fully recovered Han Yan. His Ancient Divine Devil bloodline had fully awakened. Furthermore, he had also fully absorbed the Earth Devil’s devil characteristic source. Although he didn’t break through to the Late Divine Core realm, he stood firmly in the Mid Divine Core realm. Most importantly, the massive amount of energy contained within the Earth Devil’s devil soul wasn’t depleted, it was stored within the Ancient Divine Devil bloodline, and Han Yan could slowly absorb it in the future.
Even with all this, his progress was simply startling. Half a year ago, when Han Yan participated in the Qi Province competition, he was only a Late Mortal Core warrior, and before he was injured and entered a coma, he had just broken through to the Heavenly Core realm. But now, he had reached the peak of the Mid Divine Core realm. This horrifying progress was simply unbelievable.
“Oh heavens, senior disciple Han Yan has actually reached the peak Mid Divine Core realm! This is terrifying!
“So astonishing! He went from an Early Heavenly Core warriors to a peak Mid Divine Core warrior; the Ancient Divine Devil’s bloodline is really amazing!”
“The Black Sect now has another mighty genius! I really envy those who were born with special bodies; they were born geniuses! No matter how many relentless hours we spend in cultivation, we just can’t compare with their sudden surges in cultivation.”
Everyone from the Black Sect were staring at Han Yan who was hovering in the sky. His progress had hugely impacted them.
“Junior Disciple Han is really amazing! It looks like the Earth Devil’s devil soul really helped him a lot!”
Guan Yiyun said with mixed emotions as he looked far into the distance. He was one of the top four geniuses in the Qi Province, the number one genius in the Black Sect; but now he had been completely surpassed by Jiang Chen and Han Yan.
Back on Guo Shan’s mountain peak, when Jiang Chen sensed Han Yan’s energy, he immediately walked out from Yan Chenyu’s room.
“Peak Mid Divine Core realm, not bad. Furthermore, the Ancient Divine Devil’s bloodline has completely awakened. His growth speed in the future will be incredible, he could break through to the Late Divine Core realm at any time. With Brother Yan’s current combat strength, I believe he isn’t much weaker than me and Big Yellow. The Ancient Divine Devil’s blood is no joke.”
Jiang Chen murmured. He was very confident in Han Yan’s current combat strength. With the full awakening of the Ancient Divine Devil bloodline, Han Yan must have awakened his powerful innate ability, or perhaps even inherited the Earth Devil’s powerful innate ability.
“Damn it, the birth of another abnormal monster.”
Big Yellow couldn’t help but say.
Above in the skies, Han Yan’s eyes were glowing brightly. He finally threw his glance onto Guo Shan’s mountain peak. When he saw Jiang Chen, a smile immediately emerged on his face. With a sway of his body; he landed in front of Jiang Chen.
Han Yan spread his arms and gave Jiang Chen a big hug. The ‘my brother’ said everything he wanted to say. Although he had entered a coma, he still knew everything Jiang Chen had done for him in his subconscious mind. Not only had Jiang Chen saved his life, he had also caused his cultivation to soar incredibly. His heart was filled with thousands of grateful words, but he didn’t want to speak them; a hug was more than enough; this was his brother.
“Get lost, daddy has no interest in men.”
Jiang Chen pushed Han Yan away and teased him.
“Damn you, I have no interest in you at all!”
Han Yan snappily said. After that, both of them began laughing at the same time.
In the same night, right in the courtyard, all men had gathered together. Guo Shan took out all the fine wine he had brewed. Han Yan’s recovery made Jiang Chen really happy. Finally, he had fulfilled one of his wishes.
Jiang Chen, Big Yellow, Han Yan, Guo Shan, Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan were drinking to their heart’s content and laughing out heartily. The men told Han Yan all about what happened while he was in a coma. Just when they were in the middle of telling the story about what happened in Inferno Hell, Daoist Black came and joined the group.
“Not cool, guys. Why did no one invite me to drink with you?”
Daoist Black came without an invitation. He didn’t consider himself an outsider, he simply sat down next to Han Yan, grabbed a wine pot and began drinking to his heart’s content.
“Hey, Big Yellow has been drinking from that pot.”
Han Yan reminded Daoist Black in a serious manner.
Daoist Black immediately threw up all the wine he had drank. After violently coughing for some time, he angrily glared at Han Yan.
“Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
Daoist Black opened his eyes wider than a camel’s. He had actually just shared a wine pot with a dog, and it was the dog who drank first. Damn it, how was he going to face other people in the future if they knew about this?
