Chapter 272 – Withdrawal from the Black Sect
“Aiya! Senior disciple Jiang just doesn’t know that men are supposed to be tender toward woman.”
“You’re right, he is too brutal, not gentle at all.”
Many of the disciples teased Jiang Chen. But in their minds, none of them really considered this Lute Devil a woman.
Eldest Mang yelled. He was so angry it seemed like a fire was going to ignite within his eyes. Without and hesitation, he shook the huge blade in his hand and drew a circle with it, then he forcefully slashed at Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed, then the Bloodthirsty Sword appeared in his hand. With a swing of his arm, the Bloodthirsty Sword dashed forward like a poisonous snake and poked right into the side of the huge blade. With such tremendous force, Eldest Mang simply couldn’t hold onto the blade any longer. The huge blade was knocked away by Jiang Chen’s sword.
Jiang Chen was extremely fast, no one saw how he struck. In the next second, the sword impaled Eldest Mang’s chest, piercing a hole through his body.
Eldest Mang looked at the young man in front of him with extreme shock. His heart was enraged. As a peak Divine Core warrior, he had never even imagined being killed by an Early Divine Core warrior, not to mention a young one.
Eldest Mang suffered some minor injuries from the previous exchange, that’s why he was no match for Jiang Chen. Because of that, it was perfectly normal that he would be killed by Jiang Chen.
“Seven Weirdoes of Mount Mang, your evil business in the Qing Province has nothing to do with me, we walk our own separate paths. However, since your path led to you coming here to disturb me, don’t blame me for being cruel. Also, seeing how close the relationship between you seven weirdoes is, I’ll send you all to hell so you can accompany each other there.”
Jiang Chen said with a cold voice. After that, he moved his wrist and pulled his sword sideways, slicing Eldest Mang’s body in two. Just like the Lute Devil, he was killed on the spot.
On the other side, the formidable Big Yellow was also attacking. He had killed the cross-eyed man with his powerful head. After that, he dragged his own majestic body and slammed himself into another man.
Han Yan on the other side was also attacking in an extremely formidable manner. With the Nine Heavenly Devil Waves, he killed one of his opponents. After that, he unleashed an eerie devil claw and grabbed at the last weirdo.
Finally, followed by the last two blood-curdling screeches, all Six Weirdoes of Mount Mang were dead. The trio had each killed two of them, it was a tragic ending. From now on, there wouldn’t be any legends about the Seven Weirdoes of Mount Mang in the Eastern Continent anymore.
Everyone in the Black Sect held their breath as they stared at the trio hovering in the sky with amazement in their eyes. They were extremely powerful, and none of the disciples had ever seen anyone so formidable before. The trio had just killed six Late Divine Core warriors without even giving their opponents any chance to fight back.
Xuan Ye’s eyes were glowing as well. He kept throwing examining looks on both Jiang Chen and Han Yan while nodding his head.
“Such talent, even those geniuses in the Martial Palace can’t compare with them. With Jiang Chen and Han Yan’s current cultivation levels, I think only those Late Divine Core warriors in the Martial Palace and Martial Saint Dynasty can put up a fight against them.”
Xuan Ye sighed. With his judgment, Han Yan was considered pretty standard. He was a peak Mid Divine Core warrior, and he also had a Divine Body. It was perfectly normal for him to fight and kill someone who had a higher cultivation level than himself. What really shocked Xuan Ye was actually Jiang Chen! Jiang Chen was only 17 years old, and not only was he an Early Divine Core warrior, he was also able to defeat all Divine Core warriors with his mere Early Divine Core cultivation level. Such powerful combat strength has never been seen before.
During the next days, there was not a single peaceful moment for the Black Sect. The people who wanted to kill Jiang Chen and avenge their friends kept coming. Most of them were just acting on impulse, they never fully understood the current situation, and they just kept coming with extreme anger. Of course, all of them were killed by Jiang Chen in the end. If they knew that Jiang Chen had just killed the Six Weirdoes of Mount Mang, perhaps they couldn’t be coming like they did. At least they would make some preparations.
Also, everyone from the Black Sect had finally witnessed Jiang Chen’s incredible ability in offending people. All of them were amazed by the insane amount of enemies Jiang Chen had. It had reached a level that went beyond their imagination. None of them could even begin to imagine what Jiang Chen had actually done back in Inferno Hell.
When someone was killed, there would always be someone else who comes forth to seek revenge, and when those people who came to seek revenge were killed, there would be even more people coming, to take revenge for those who failed to get revenge. All of these people were coming from all sorts of big powers from the other provinces, and all of them had respective backgrounds. If this cycle of revenge kept running, no one would be able to predict when it would come to an end.
Within the Black Sect, on Guo Shan’s mountain peak.
“Brother Jiang, it’s just the beginning, there’s simply too many powers and people who wants to kill you. The men you killed in Inferno Hell came from almost every single province in the Eastern Province, many of them were from big powers and had quite profound positions back in their respective powers. Stories of what happened in Inferno Hell must have crazily spread, and your name must have been heard by many powers and people as well. The endless waves of people seeking revenge that you had to face in the last two days is proof of that. But, I believe no more idiots will come here without preparation. They will begin to prepare before coming to kill you.”
Xuan Ye said.
“Brother Xuan, what you said is correct. I am almost in a situation where anyone could be my enemy. I don’t mind facing so many enemies, but this will definitely affect the Black Sect. The restless situation the Black Sect is facing right now is not what I want to see.”
Jiang Chen said as he furrowed his brows. The Black Sect had just unified the entire Qi Province and had just settled down. But, the Qi Province was still the same Qi Province, the Black Sect didn’t have a Combat Soul warrior that could protect them. There was no way it could compare with those bigger sects in the other provinces.
“That’s right. As long as you’re still in the Black Sect, there is no way the Black Sect won’t get affected by this. Don’t forget, amongst all your enemies, there is also the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan from the Jian Province. Both of them are gigantic existences, and even the Martial Saint Dynasty has to show them respect to a certain degree. If a big sect like them wants to destroy the Black Sect, it would be a piece of cake.
Xuan Ye reminded.
Jiang Chen nodded his head. Although the Black Sect had become a sole power in the Qi Province, when compared to those super powers like the Shangguan Clan and the Myriad Sword Sect from the Jian Province, the gap between their power was simply too huge. There was no way they could be compared. If those two super powers really wanted to destroy the Black Sect, it would just be a matter of moving their fingers.
Finally, Jiang Chen made a decision.
“I’ll announce to the public. From today onwards, I will no longer be a part of the Black Sect, I will no longer have any relationship with the Black Sect. All hatred and desire to get revenge shall be directed toward me alone; I want to give the Black Sect peace.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes were glowing. For him, whether or not he stayed in the Black Sect made no difference. Since the situation had settled down, it was time for him to go to some bigger places. He had prepared himself, he would proceed to the Blissful Island tomorrow and participate in the trade fair. He wanted to find out where he could get the Nine Solar Holy Water. While he was away, he wanted peace for the Black Sect. After all, his friends were still here.
“If this is brother Jiang’s decision, your brother I will also provide some help for the Black Sect. I’ll make an announcement when I return; from now on, the Black Sect will be protected by the Martial Palace. Furthermore, when I leave, I will bring two persons with me, and they will continue cultivating in the Martial Palace. With this, the Martial Palace’s reason for protecting the Black Sect will become valid.”
Xuan Ye said.
Hearing this, the few other men who were also at the scene kept quiet, and their expressions changed immediately, including Daoist Black. The way they looked at Xuan Ye changed tremendously.
Oh heavens! He was from the Martial Palace!
Martial Palace! The holy land for all warriors, and it was directly controlled by the Martial Saint Dynasty. It was a place where countless geniuses dreamt about going. The Qi Province had long ago been abandoned by the Martial Saint Dynasty, so this was unexpected good news. A Combat Soul warrior from the Martial Palace would personally bring 2 of the Black Sect’s disciples with him to the Martial Palace so they could cultivate there. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Guan Yiyun and Tian Yishan were at the scene as well. Both of them knew Xuan Ye from back in Inferno Hell, but none of them knew he was actually from the Martial Palace. It seemed like Wu Jiu was also from the Martial Palace.
Jiang Chen was the only person who could still remain calm. He had long ago guessed that Wu Jiu was from the Martial Saint Dynasty. The reason why Xuan Ye came here to help him, even help the Black Sect, and make an exception by bringing two men back with him must have been because of Wu Jiu. He was trying to repay Jiang Chen’s help with this.
“If that’s the case, thank you, Brother Xuan.”
Jiang Chen cupped his fist toward Xuan Ye.
“Brother Jiang, you can choose two men, I’ll bring them back with me when I leave. As for you, Lord Jiu hopes you can join the Martial Palace with your own effort, and even achieve a great position in the future.”
Xuan Ye said. What Wu Jiu meant was pretty obvious, although Jiang Chen had a lot of enemies now, the Martial Palace would not protect him at all. He wanted Jiang Chen to go through everything on his own and gain more experience.
Toward Wu Jiu’s intention, Jiang Chen could only laugh. He was not the young who lacked experience that Wu Jiu thought he was, he was the reincarnated greatest Saint in the world. Of course, Wu Jiu was doing this out of good intentions, that’s why Jiang Chen didn’t say anything about it.
Jiang Chen turned to Han Yan, but before he could say anything, Han Yan hurriedly waved his hand, “Little Chen, I want to follow you, I don’t want to join the Martial Palace so quickly.”
Han Yan was also an adventurous man. Besides, Jiang Chen’s current condition was no good. He was facing a situation where almost everyone he met would be his enemy. As his brother, Han Yan wanted to fight together with him.
“Brother Yan, you better consider it twice. Entering the Martial Palace is a rare opportunity. The environment in the Martial Palace is much more suited for cultivation, the Black Sect can’t compare.”
Jiang Chen reminded again.
“That’s right. Han Yan, joining the Martial Palace is an honor, and you’ll be the pride of the Black Sect as well.”
Daoist Black hastily said.
“Don’t try to talk me into doing it, I’ve made up my mind.”
Han Yan said with determination.
After that, Jiang Chen turned to another three men; Guan Yiyun, Tian Yishan, and Yu Zihan.
“Brother Xuan, can you give me one more spot? I want to let three men join the Martial Palace.”
Jiang Chen asked.
Xuan Ye agreed without hesitation.
“Senior disciple Guan, Brother Tian, Zihan, you three follow Brother Xuan and enter the Martial Palace, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Jiang Chen said to the trio. All of them had a close relationship with him, and with such a rare opportunity in front of them, Jiang Chen had to help them fight for it no matter what.
