Chapter 333 – Jiang Chen Appears!
Hearing Big Yellow’s name, many people in the crowd immediately threw their glance in the direction where he stood. Many of them had seen Big Yellow before, so they could easily recognize the trio.
“It really is them! Don’t they know that both the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect are looking for them everywhere? Why did they still come here, are they courting death?”
“This trio is finished! Although they strength is pretty abnormal, they can’t compare with these true geniuses in front of them, the gap between them is not small!”
“They’re dead, they’re screwed!”
The duo consisting of Jiang Chen and Big Yellow had become very famous, especially the majestic Big Yellow, who was considered the unique icon of the group. As for Han Yan and Nangong Wentian, both of them were Jiang Chen’s friends as well. Many people had seen the two entering together with Big Yellow.
The Shangguan Clan and the Myriad Sword Sect had both been looking for them everywhere, vowing to kill them no matter what the cost was. But, not only had these three not hid anywhere, they just came straight to this place!
All the men from the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect immediately surrounded the trio. Fire burned within the eyes of each and every single one of them. They knew what had happened back in the sky garden, not only were these three guys with Jiang Chen, they also killed four disciples of the Shangguan Clan! Now, it was payback time!
“No, we can’t let them die so easily, we need to torture them before sending them to hell!”
“Let’s rip this dog’s skin off while it’s still alive, then barbecue it!”
Everyone from the Shangguan Clan were gritting their teeth in anger, and nearly leapt forwards to bit off Big Yellow’s meat.
Shangguan Yilong waved his hand, signaling his men not to be impulsive. He took a step forward, arriving in front of the trio, and asked, “Where is Jiang Chen?”
“Why are you so impatient to see Little Chen? You in a hurry to seek death?”
Han Yan casually shrugged his shoulders. Although he was facing so many enemies, no signs of fear could be found on his face.
“What a joke, Jiang Chen is but an ant in front of me! It’s really funny that you think he can kill me! Tell me, where is Jiang Chen?! Tell me and I might give you all quick deaths!”
Shangguan Yilong started laughing as if he had just heard the funniest joke in his entire life.
“Don’t waste your time looking for him, Jiang Chen will come here himself. As for the three of us, I firmly believe you don’t dare kill us.”
Nangong Wentian said with a smile on his face. He too showed no signs of fear.
“Kill them all, this is ridiculous!”
A disciple from the Myriad Sword Sect couldn’t bear these guys any longer.
“Yilong, just kill them, they’re too much of an eyesore. After killing these guys, we’ll find that Jiang Chen and kill him! We have to get revenge for the Shangguan Clan, no matter what!”
Shangguan Yihong who stood behind him gave out the final decision.
Shangguan Yilong agreed. He immediately unleashed his killing intent, and was getting ready to attack the trio.
Han Yan suddenly shouted out loudly.
“What’s wrong? You guys are now afraid?”
A mocking grin emerged on Shangguan Yilong’s face.
“I’m sorry, daddy doesn’t know how to write afraid. I’m just worried you don’t have to guts to kill us, take a look at what this is!”
Han Yan flipped his palm, and in the blink of an eye, a bronze plate appeared.
“A bronze plate!”
Wu Cong instantly exclaimed upon seeing the bronze plate. The treasure hidden within the ancient pagoda had greatly interested him, and what he needed now the most was to gather all nine bronze plates and open up the stone door. They had five right now, and were lacking four. None of them had expected this; Han Yan had one bronze plate with him!
“Young man, you don’t deserve to possess that bronze plate. Hand it over and I’ll give you a quick death!”
Shangguan Yilong shouted toward Han Yan.
Big Yellow stared at Shangguan Yilong and perfectly described him in a serious manner.
“Damn dog, what did you just say? You’re courting death!”
Shangguan Yilong became furious because of Big Yellow’s words. He immediately slapped toward Big Yellow with a tremendous amount of force.
Big Yellow moved his body, revealing a mystical symbol right in the middle of his forehead. With that, he simply rammed toward Shangguan Yilong’s palm.
When Shangguan Yilong’s palm collided with Big Yellow’s head, a metal-clanging sound resounded throughout the scene. Big Yellow’s majestic body was knocked back by the force. Shangguan Yilong was much stronger than Shangguan Yilei. Although it was just a simple strike, Big Yellow was still not his match, and was knocked back in an instant.
However, Big Yellow had thick skin and strong muscles, and his head was the strongest part of his body. He didn’t suffer any injuries after getting hit by Shangguan Yilong’s palm.
Shangguan Yilong cried out in disbelief. He knew very well how much force his palm contained, and even with this tremendous amount of force, this dog’s head was still intact!
“Shangguan Yilong, if you attack us again, I promise you I will destroy this bronze plate before you’re able to kill us!”
Han Yan clenched the bronze plate in his fist tightly, causing some cracking sounds to sound out from it.
“How dare you!?”
Shangguan Yihong pointed his finger at Han Yan.
“I’m not joking, I only joke with my friends. If you guys don’t believe me, feel free to test me!”
There was only calmness on Han Yan’s face, he was showing no signs of being panicked or afraid.
“How dare you threaten me?! Fine, I’ll kill you now, let’s see if you really can destroy the bronze plate before I kill you!”
Shangguan Yihong was really furious right now, and was about to attack Han Yan.
Right at this moment, Wu Cong shouted out loudly, stopping Shangguan Yihong.
“What is your name?”
Wu Cong walked up to the front and threw his glance at Han Yan.
Han Yan replied.
“You’re a man with courage. Since you have a bronze plate, I can guarantee your life. As long as you give me that bronze plate, I promise, no one here can kill you. What do you think?”
Wu Cong suggested.
“This bronze plate is my only defense, do you truly think I’ll give it to you?”
Han Yan said with a grin. This Wu Cong was clearly with the Shangguan Clan and Myriad Sword Sect. As long as he handed the bronze plate over, he would lose his token of negotiation, and all lives within the trio would be in danger.
“It’s fine if you don’t give it to me, but you need to place it on the stone door later on. When the door is open, you’ll get a portion of the treasures we find inside. But, since you only have one bronze plate, it can only save your life; the other two will still have to die.”
For Wu Cong, sparing Han Yan’s life was the biggest concession. As a supreme prince, it was rare for him to give way to someone else.
Han Yan replied firmly.
“Hmph! Han Yan, don’t try to refuse a toast only to be forced to drink a forfeit! I can easily kill you if I wanted to, don’t think so highly of the bronze plate in your hand. With it, we only have six of them, the stone door still won’t open.”
Wu Cong coldly harrumphed. No one had every dared to disobey his decision.
“You’re right, even with the bronze plate in my hand, you guys still can’t get the stone door open. But, without the bronze plate in my hand, even if you find the remaining bronze plates, you still won’t be able to open the stone door. Am I right, prince?”
Han Yan said with a faint smile on his face. Since he knew the important of the bronze plate in his hand, he felt much relief. As long as he still had it in his hand, no one here would have the courage to attack him, because if he broke the bronze plate, the ancient pagoda would not be opened, and all these people would have to return empty handed.
“Are you trying to threaten me?”
Wu Cong was trying his best to suppress his anger.
“Yes we’re threatening you, stupid bitch!”
Big Yellow was truly amazing, he just cursed a prince!
Many people felt like they were about to faint, especially those who had witnessed how Big Yellow had behaved back on the Blissful Island. Many of them wanted to prostrate themselves in front of Big Yellow in admiration. This dog was the prime example of one with absolutely no fear! Not only had he shit on the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan’s Elders, he now even cursed a prince as a stupid bitch!
“You’re courting death!”
This time, Wu Cong could no longer suppress his anger. He immediately unleashed the mighty energy of someone at the Mid Combat Soul realm, which spread across the scene. Under the pressure of such tremendous energy, many people started feeling a difficult in even breathing. As the son of the Tenth Emperor, the prince of the Martial Saint Dynasty, nobody had ever cursed at him like this before, and a dog had just done so! He couldn’t take it any longer!
In an instant, Wu Cong struck his palm toward Big Yellow.
Right at this moment, another palm dashed out from the side, instantly blocking Wu Cong’s strike. The man who did this was none other than Wu Lang!
“Wu Long, how dare you stop me?!”
Wu Cong’s fury didn’t diminish a little bit at all.
“I’m doing this for everyone’s sake. If he really destroys the bronze plate, none of us are going to enter this ancient pagoda, and we will have to return empty handed.”
Wu Lang glared at Wu Cong.
“A dog just cursed at me!! I’ll have to kill him even if he has ten thousand lives! I don’t care, I want to kill this dog now, don’t stop me!”
Wu Cong shouted out loudly.
“I am not going to let you do that!”
Wu Lang’s attitude was firm, but his behavior clearly showed that he wasn’t just trying to prevent the destruction of the bronze plate, even Han Yan and Nangong Wentian could clearly tell that he was trying to protect them. This really puzzled them, because they didn’t know this prince, so why was he trying to save their live?
“I said this before, the bronze plate can only save Han Yan’s life, and that dog just insulted me! I have to kill him to protect my honor! Wu Lang, if you continue blocking me, don’t blame me for being rude!”
The air of arrogance surrounding Wu Cong became even thicker. Right at this moment, even the men from the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan had to back off. They didn’t want to get their feet wet in the conflict between the two princes; they couldn’t afford to offend any of them.
“If that is the case, I don’t mind teaching you a lesson.”
Wu Lang was not scared of Wu Cong. Although both of them came from the same family, their relationship wasn’t good. The undercurrent between the different powers in the imperial family had always been violent, and it was much more complicated than it looked.
“Fine, Wu Lang, one of us will die today! Shangguan Yihong, Ling Du, I’ll fight Wu Lang, you two kill that dog!”
Wu Cong’s energy suddenly rose.
Right at this moment, a powerful shockwave suddenly came from their back. A man was seen flying toward them like a shooting star.
“I have three bronze plates with me, I wonder how many people I can protect?”
Right after the sentence ended, the man arrived in front of the crowd. It was a handsome young man dressed in white clothes – Jiang Chen!
Someone in the crowd shouted. No one had expected Jiang Chen to arrive at this moment. It looked like the situation was going to become even more chaotic!
“So you’re that Jiang Chen! Fine, you’re finally here, it’s time for you to pay the debt of blood you have with the Shangguan Clan!”
Shangguan Yilong once again unleashed his mighty energy. Without saying anything else, he immediately leapt forwards and struck toward Jiang Chen. With incredible killing intent, he turned his palm strike into a gigantic web which covered toward Jiang Chen, trying to capture him.
