Sorry for the late release! Power was out for maybe 6 hours, and when it came back, internet was down for 3-4 hours, so I couldn’t release any chapters. 2-3 more coming later!
Chapter 309 – Killed One by One
Soon, all the warriors had entered the desert from the entrance outside the Island of Ice. More than ten thousand people filled the land, causing it to look like a grand event was underway. However, all of them looked deeply depressed as they looked across the stretching desert. Feeling the restriction to their cultivation bases, none of these warriors felt secure at all. Usually, they would feel safe with their strong cultivation bases, but when a majestic elephant was transformed into a weak, tiny mouse… it was a feeling that no one could describe.
“Let’s walk toward the inner parts of this desert, this place should just be a small piece of the entire island. Once we leave this desert, our cultivation bases will be restored to normal.”
Ye Xiao said with a loud voice. As the Myriad Sword Sect’s elder, his experience was quite rich. Therefore, he was able to sense the mysterious force that only affected those within this desert. Once they left, they would be able to escape the restriction. The real treasure was also definitely hidden within the inner area of the Island of Ice.
“Precisely, this desert is just a small part of the Island of Ice.”
Mao Sheng nodded his head in agreement.
After saying that, all the Combat Soul warriors started walking toward the inner parts of the desert. Suddenly, four figures appeared in front of them, stopping them from going any further.
These four figures were none other than Jiang Chen and his group. Right at this moment, Jiang Chen’s arms were folded on his chest, and he wore a bright smile as he shrugged his shoulders. He stared at Ye Xiao and the other Combat Soul warriors with an evil expression.
“Guys, guys, I thought you want to kill me? In my opinion, why don’t you guys kill me first, before proceeding any further?”
Jiang Chen said in an indifferent manner.
“Humph! Jiang Chen, don’t tell me you’re really that naïve, thinking we can’t kill you after our cultivation bases were weakened? Let me tell you this; even though we’re just Mortal Core warriors, our foundations are still much stronger than yours! Killing you is just a piece of cake!”
Shangguan Chong coldly harrumphed.
“Why don’t you try and kill me now?”
Jiang Chen shrugged his shoulder, and his expression basically said he didn’t care. Next to him, Han Yan and Big Yellow wore bright smiles on their faces. These people might not understand Jiang Chen, but these two knew him very well! When it came to battles with warriors in the same real and stage as himself, Jiang Chen was an absolutely invincible existence!
Right now, everyone’s cultivations were restricted to the Early Mortal Core realm, and all of them had the same amount of Yuan energy. Once they fought, the main deciding factor would be bodily strength! And, regardless if it was Jiang Chen, Big Yellow, or even Han Yan, they were all superior to everyone else here!
Jiang Chen was cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill, and his body was as sturdy as pure steel. This group of Combat Soul warriors were like ants to him; he could easily crush them with his fingers.
Shangguan Chong furrowed his brows; he really wished he could leap forward and kill Jiang Chen immediately. But, since their cultivations were restricted to the same level, as well as Jiang Chen’s previous demonstration of his might, he had no confidence in killing him right now. That’s the reason why he didn’t attack Jiang Chen after coming to this place.
Ye Xiao, Mao Sheng and the other Combat Soul warriors all wore ugly expressions as well. After losing their Combat Soul cultivation base, they lost all their confidence.
“What’s wrong? No one wants to kill me now? I thought you were all very arrogant just now? Fine, since you’ve all lost your confidence, I’ll be the arrogant one! Today, without my permission, no one is allowed to leave this desert! As for you, the old fools who has repeatedly tried to kill me, if you kneel down now and kowtow three times to me, I might show some mercy and spare your lives!”
Jiang Chen behaved incredibly arrogantly right now, and he was very excited. The ancient mysterious force in this desert was really amazing! In such an environment, he, Jiang Chen was the absolute king! Even a Combat King warrior would have to kneel down in front of him in here!
“What?! You want us to kneel down?!”
“Ridiculous! Little bastard, how dare you talk to us like that?! You’re just courting death!”
“This little bastard is too arrogant, he really think we can’t kill him not that our cultivations are restricted! He has no idea how powerful the foundation of a Combat Soul warrior is, our abilities are not something he can comprehend!”
“The impudence if this guy is beyond all imagination! Let me teach him a lesson! Although my cultivation is restricted right now, I have spent all my life tempering my body; my bones are strong as steel, and skin is hard like bronze, I’ll be able to tear him to pieces just with my bodily strength alone! Jiang Chen bastard, come here and meet your death!”
These Combat Soul warriors were furious! They were all formidable Combat Soul warriors, elders from superpowers! They were highly revered existences no matter where they went, and their words were like the ultimate orders that no one dared disobey! But, this young man in front of them just asked them to kneel down; this was simply ridiculous!
One of the Combat Soul warriors who had a majestic body leapt toward Jiang Chen like a fierce tiger.
The turmoil immediately attracted everyone’s attention, once again. The warriors who were getting ready to proceed to the inner parts of the desert stopped moving. The conflict between Jiang Chen and the Combat Soul warriors was going to resume once again. From the Blissful Island to the Island of Ice, and until this desert, it had yet to stop!
The man’s fist was glowing, and he punched toward Jiang Chen’s face. But too bad, Jiang Chen grabbed his fist in an instant!
A shout emerged from the man’s mouth as he began circulating his force in order to smash Jiang Chen, but to his surprise, his opponent’s palm was like an iron clamp, and no matter how hard he tried, he just couldn’t get his fist out from the grip.
“You dare say your bones are strong as iron and skin hard as copper with this weak strength?”
With a mocking expression, Jiang Chen forcefully squeezed his palm. In an instant, a bone cracking sound was heard, accompanied by a blood-curdling screech. The Combat Soul warrior’s arm was broken by Jiang Chen, and the broken bone pierced through his skin, shocking all those who watched.
The Combat Soul warrior’s face was slapped, and all his teeth were sent flying out from his mouth. The man simply had no way to resist Jiang Chen’s attack, and was thrown onto the ground.
Jiang Chen didn’t show any mercy! With tremendous force, he stepped onto the warrior’s face and pushed it into the ground. Blood immediately shot out from the ground like a water foundation. The great warrior’s body trembled and struggled, but in just a few breaths of time, he completely stopped struggling, and no motion could be seen.
The scene made everyone gasp from shock. Ye Xiao, Shanguan Chong and the other Combat Soul warriors all stared at Jiang Chen, frightened. At this moment, none of them acted in the same overbearing manner as before, and their arrogance had been completely replaced by fear.
“Oh heavens, so strong! Now that their cultivation bases are being suppressed, those Combat Soul warriors are absolutely no match for Jiang Chen!”
“Yes, he’s extremely fierce! He just killed a Combat Soul warriors as if he was stepping on a tiny ant! Jiang Chen’s body strength is too powerful, I don’t think there anyone in the same real as him who can fight him! Those Combat Soul warriors are done for!”
“I don’t think so. No matter how daring Jiang Chen is, he won’t have the courage to kill all those Combat Soul warriors! Many of them are elders from respectable superpowers. Ye Xiao and Shangguan Chong are also from the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan.”
Everyone were stunned by what they just saw. The table between Jiang Chen and those Combat Soul warriors had completely turned! Jiang Chen was the one being chased and hunted down just now, but now, he was the one who could easily kill them!
Big Yellow burst into laughter. He immediately sprinted forward and arrived next to the dead Combat Soul warrior’s body, then he took away his storage ring without any hesitation. This man and dog duo were experts at killing people and robbing them of all their belongings.
Jiang Chen gave Big Yellow a praising look. A Combat Soul warrior’s storage ring was bound to have a lot of wealth, and since he had kill the man, he couldn’t just let his wealth go to waste.
After killing the man, Jiang Chen didn’t stop. He continued walking step by step toward the group of Combat Soul warriors. Although he was facing the group alone, his expression was a calm one. On the other side, the group of Combat Soul warriors were repeatedly stepping backwards. Their fear of Jiang Chen grew larger and larger with each passing step.
“Jiang Chen, do you know what you’re doing right now?!”
Shangguan Chong pointed his finger at Jiang Chen while fiercely shouting at him.
With great speed, Jiang Chen dashed forwards and grabbed Shangguan Chong’s finger. He squeezed his palm with a tremendous force, causing Shangguan Chong’s finger to explode and turn into a frightening blood mist.
“Arghh! Jiang Chen, little bastard!”
Shangguan Chong let out a horrifying cry.
“Old son of a bitch, even at this point of time, you’re still yelling like a mad man? Do you really think daddy doesn’t dare kill you? Fine, I’ll kill you right now!”
Without saying anything else, Jiang Chen forcefully kicked Shangguan Chong’s stomach. Although Shangguan Chong defended himself with his Yuan energy, he just couldn’t resist Jiang Chen’s attack. The powerful kick shattered the Yuan energy barrier, and knocked him away. He slammed into the ground nearly 40 meters from where he was kicked, and he started vomiting blood.
Before Shangguan Chong could stand up, Jiang Chen arrived in front of him. Without any hesitation, Jiang Chen raised his hand and threw a powerful punch at Shangguan Chong’s head.
The angry voice carrying a hint of unwillingness stopped abruptly. With Jiang Chen’s powerful punch, even the hardest rocks would be shattered; let alone Shangguan Chong’s head.
Shangguan Chong’s exploded from Jiang Chen’s powerful punch, and he died on the spot. After killing him, Jiang Chen didn’t even take a second look at this dead body, he just turned around and continued walking toward the other Combat Soul warriors who previously tried killing him. On the other side, Big Yellow immediately jumped next to Shangguan Chong’s dead body and began looting. Many people really hated what he was doing, but none of them dared speak a single word.
Jiang Chen’s action once again caused a storm to sweep across the minds of the ones watching. Shangguan Chong’s head just exploded; this was going to be huge!
Who dared kill someone from the Shangguan Clan? Let along a highly revered Elder! Jiang Chen just killed one without even blinking his eyes! His courage really made the crowds admire him.
Jiang Chen continued walked step by step toward Ye Xiao. Right at this moment, Ye Xiao had lost all his previous bearing. He was trembling all over as he repeatedly stepped backwards.
This couldn’t be considered a human anymore! Although the Combat Soul warriors’ cultivation bases were being suppressed, their foundations were MUCH stronger than that of an ordinary Mortal Core warrior. But, in front of Jiang Chen, this powerful foundation was a joke! They felt like fragile babies facing a strong adult! Jiang Chen would easily be able to kill them with just a mere slap!
“Jiang… Jiang Chen, don’t get yourself into trouble… you know you’re going to be in deep shit if you offend the Myriad Sword Sect…”
Ye Xiao tried warning Jiang Chen, but clearly, he had no confidence in his words. As a formidable Combat Soul warrior, his voice was actually trembling!
“Ye Xiao, even now, you’re still talking trash? I just killed Shangguan Chong; do you really think I’m scared of you? If you had knelt down in front of me just now, your life might have been spared. But, it’s too late!”
Jiang Chen said with a grin on his face. He didn’t forget how Ye Xiao tried to kill him before this. When dealing with an enemy like this, he would never show any mercy!
