Chapter 302 – Fighting Combat Soul Warriors
The huge ocean waves were getting more and more violent, and they carried a devastating force that destroyed everything that got in their way. Many weak ocean demons were torn to pieces by the tremendous force. For every single creature living in the ocean, this was a disaster that came without any alarm.
The Blissful Island’s atmosphere was extremely panicked. Everyone were fully unleashing their Yuan energy, and injecting it into the gigantic golden net, trying to block the gigantic waves that were repeatedly slamming into the island.
Superpowers like the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan had gotten themselves involved as well. Because of the critical moment, the temporarily put aside their killing intent toward Jiang Chen. Of course, this didn’t mean they had forgotten the hatred. Ye Xiao and Shangguan Chong looked at Jiang Chen, and they even locked onto on his aura completely. But, this wasn’t the time to strike.
Everyone were unified in fighting against the gigantic waves. If they attacked now, it would definitely disturb everyone’s effort, and make every single person on this island throw their hatred at them. Although the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan were both superpowers, they didn’t want to become targeted by everyone, as that would simply do them no good. What everyone were facing right now concerned all their lives.
“Little Chen, looks like those two old fools don’t want to let us go easily.”
Han Yan clearly felt the hostile gazes from Ye Xiao and Shangguan Chong. Besides these two men, there was another pair of eyes filled with hostility looking at them; it was Mao Sheng from the Qingyi Sect.
“Don’t worry, they won’t dare strike now.”
Jiang Chen shrugged his shoulders with a carefree expression on his face.
“Kaka, I’ll treat them some fresh stock later.”
Big Yellow burst into laughter.
Recalling Big Yellow’s previous actions, Jiang Chen and Han Yan’s expressions changed. They realized they had been underestimating Big Yellow after what happened in the auction.
“Big Yellow, how did you do that? It was so loud and stinky, simply invincible.”
Han Yan gave Big Yellow a thumbs up.
“This master dog has a lot of special abilities; you’ll learn about them when time comes.”
Big Yellow said while holding his head up high, as if letting out a stinking fart was something to be really proud about.
“Big Yellow, if your abilities are similar to the one you just showed us, I don’t think we want to know.”
Jiang Chen quickly replied, Big Yellow’s special abilities really made him speechless.
Bang, bang, bang…
The raging waves repeatedly slammed into the island. All the warriors stood on the island, looking out into the ocean. But, because of the endless waves, none of them could clearly see what was going on outside.
There was one thing they could clearly feel though, and that was the sky which had become completely dark. The ocean breeze was extremely shivering, and the temperature was still dropping at a significant rate.
Three hours later, the power of the raging waves had reached their maximum level. Master Blissful had left three hours ago, and still hadn’t come back. The sky was completely dark, but the gigantic waves still gave light to the Blissful Island.
As the time passed by, hard ice cubes started forming into ocean and mixing in together with the waves.
“Look, there are ice cubes in the water! The ocean temperature has dropped to the level where ice has begun forming! If the temperature keeps dropping, the entire ocean is going to be frozen, and the waves will stop coming!”
Someone shouted out.
“The ocean has never frozen before, ant not once in history has the temperature experienced such a big fluctuation! The gigantic waves have struck repeatedly for the longest time in history, seemingly without end. I wonder what’s going to happen.”
The people’s expressions were real ugly right now. The most frightening thing was the unknown; it simply caused these people to feel restless and uneasy.
Midnight had come, and the gigantic waves were slowly beginning to settle down. A thick layer of ice was formed on top of the ocean outside the Blissful Island, and the temperature was still dropping. Some warriors with weaker bodies were forced to resist the cold with their Yuan Energy. If they didn’t, they would feel the chill go straight into their marrows. The cold ocean breeze blew in their faces, and it was so freezing that it felt like someone was using a knife to cut their faces.
The second morning, the ocean had finally settle down, and the giant waves were gone. The ocean had become a pure white world; the entire ocean surface was frozen.
“Oh heavens! The entire ocean is frozen! The temperature has dropped to such a low level!
“This has never happened before! Let me find out how thick the ice is.”
Someone flew toward the ocean and punched the ice. Since the giant waves were gone, the atmosphere around the island had become much better, and the golden net had been retracted.
It was an Early Divine Core warrior who punched the ice. His punched caused a huge crater to appear on the surface of the option. Shocking, this powerful punch didn’t reveal any water underneath the ice. On the bottom of the crater, there was still only ice.
“The ice is incredibly thick! Don’t tell me the entire ocean is frozen?”
The man was shocked by the result.
“What caused all this? Master Blissful has yet to return… I wonder if something bad happened to him?”
Someone said. Many people started worrying about Master Blissful as they recalled how dreadful the raging ocean was last night.
“Master Blissful’s cultivation base is mighty, and his true form is a formidable Golden Glory Fish; he will be alright. The priority now is; what are we going to do? Since the giant waves are gone, we could just leave the Blissful Island and return to the continent.”
“Precisely. Although everything seems to have settled down, the entire ocean is still frozen. This is a great mystery, and I’m sure something big is going to happen.”
“This might be caused by the appearance of a precious treasure. If I left just like that, it would be a great pity.”
Everyone’s tongues were wagging. The storm was now gone, and this meant there was no longer any danger. Under normal circumstances, everyone would be leaving right now and return to where they came from. But, it didn’t seem like anyone were leaving.
As long as the person wasn’t an idiot, he would be able to relate the ocean’s abnormality to something great. If the abnormality was caused by the appearance of a precious treasure, leaving now would mean missing the opportunity to get it.
“Little bastard Chen Jiang, come here and face your death!”
A furious shout as loud as a clap of thunder suddenly sounded out. Within a split second, Shangguan Chong, like a wild tiger, dashed toward Jiang Chen.
“He’s done for! Shangguan Chong and Ye Xiao are going to attack, this Chen Jiang is done for! Since Master Blissful isn’t here, no one will be able to protect him!”
“It’s finally happening! I really want to know if this Chen Jiang has the ability to fight a Combat Soul warrior!”
Everyone were focused on Shangguan Chong’s attack. During the auction, the main focus had been on the conflict between Jiang Chen and the Myriad Sword Sect, Shangguan Clan, and Qingyi Sect.
Especially Ye Xiao and Shangguan Chong. Both of them had suffered from the most disgusting insult. When thinking back at what happened in the auction hall, the crowds still felt an urge to throw up. That’s why it wasn’t hard to imagine how Shangguan Chong and Ye Xiao felt right now.
Shangguan Chong’s attack contained a lot of hatred. In just the blink of an eye, he arrived in front of Jiang Chen. A very large phantom like hand carrying a devastating force was unleashed toward Jiang Chen.
“Humph! Want to kill me? Do you really think you have the ability to do so?”
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed. He didn’t feel any fear toward the incoming attack. In an instant, he countered with the True Dragon Palm, unleashing it toward Shangguan Chong’s attack. Jiang Chen wouldn’t be Shangguan Chong’s match if he was as he was when he first arrived at the Blissful Island, but during his stay in the Blissful Manor, he had absorbed all the souls he had, giving him another 600 Dragon Marks, for a total of 2,200 Dragon Marks. His current cultivation base was more than enough to fight an Early Combat Soul warrior. Although it was difficult for Jiang Chen to kill Shangguan Chong, he wouldn’t have any problems defending himself. Also, with Shangguan Chong’s ability, it was impossible for him to kill Jiang Chen.
Devastating energies swept across the scene, and a huge amount of sparks exploded out from the center of the collision. Jiang Chen’s body only swayed a little; he still stood in the same spot.
Shangguan Chong cried out in disbelief. It was as if he had just seen a ghost in front of him. Although he didn’t use a powerful combat skill just now, the force of a Combat Soul warrior was not something a Mid Divine Core junior could defend against. However, this young man in front of him had just block his attack, and it didn’t seem he like was injured at all!
“Amazing! Just what is Chen Jiang’s actual background? With just a mere Mid Divine Core cultivation base, he actually blocked a Combat Soul warrior’s attack? I wouldn’t believe it had I not seen it with my own eyes!”
“Can you guys feel that? Chen Jiang is much stronger than he was when he first arrived here! When Mao Sheng attacked him, Chen Jiang was no match for him at all, and he needed help from Old Man Ling Shan! But only a few days later, he became able to defend himself from Shangguan Chong’s attack!”
“He really is a monster from the younger generation! It doesn’t look like Shangguan Chong will easily be able to kill him!”
“But the situation is still very dangerous. You see, it isn’t only Shangguan Chong who wants to kill Chen Jian, Ye Xiao and Mao Sheng are both eyeing him as well. If the three of them attacks together, Chen Jiang will be killed for sure!”
There was no man here who wasn’t shocked by Jiang Chen’s incredible strength! With just a Mid Divine Core cultivation base, he was able to fight a Combat Soul warrior! This was simply something completely beyond their common sense. Under normal circumstances, the gap between a Divine Core warrior and a Combat Soul warriors was simply too gigantic. There was simply no way a Divine Core warrior could compare with a Combat Soul warrior!
There was a huge gap between the realms, and there was no way anyone could step across this gap. But not only had this young man stepped across this huge gap, he did it with just a Mid Divine Core cultivation base! This also posted a question in the minds of the ones watching; if this young man was a Late Divine Core warrior, would he be able to kill a Combat Soul warrior?
“Old fool, want to kill me with such a weak attack? Are you dreaming?”
Jiang Chen said, his voice loud and clear.
“Arrogant and ignorant junior, don’t be so proud of yourself just because you have some talent! I’ll teach you the difference between the Divine Core realm and the Combat Soul realm, and I’ll let you know how frightening my true strength is!”
Shangguan Chong finally stopped underestimating Jiang Chen. He unleashed the energy of a Combat Soul warrior without any restraints.
“His life doesn’t belong to you alone, he is mine as well!”
Right at this moment, Ye Xiao shouted out as well. He flew over from another direction. There was now a Mid Divine Core junior versus two Combat Soul warriors. They would lose all face if this was heard by the public. However, this wasn’t all; Mao Sheng from the Qingyi Sect suddenly flew over from another direction as well.
