Chapter 334 – I Have a Condition
Jiang Chen had finally made his appearance. His appearance immediately made Shangguan Yilong angry. With all his strength, he struck toward Jiang Chen with the Earth Shattering Palm. The blood debt between the Shangguan Clan and Jiang Chen had to be paid, therefore he needed to kill Jiang Chen upon seeing him, and never give the Myriad Sword Sect any chance to kill him before the Shangguan Clan could do so.
The Earth Shattering Palm was one of the most ferocious attacks, so when Shangguan Yilong unleashed it, the void started shaking and producing cracking sounds. Powerful winds were created as he charged along his path, and the temperature in the air increased. In just the blink of an eye, his attack arrived in front of Jiang Chen.
“You really are stronger than Shangguan Yilei. But… still not enough.”
A grin emerged onto Jiang Chen’s face. His cultivation was just a little bit away from the Late Divine Core realm, the gap only lacked a few Dragon Marks. Although this Shangguan Yilong was stronger than Shangguan Yilei, Jiang Chen feared him not. If he could kill Shangguan Yilei within just a mere second, defeating Shangguan Yilong wouldn’t require him to waste too much of his effort.
Jiang Chen stretched out his arm and threw a powerful punch toward Shangguan Yilong. His fist glowed brightly, and blood red Dragon Marks hovered around it. Each of these Dragon Marks looked like real dragons, causing his fist to emanate a mystical aura.
In the blink of an eye, both attacks collided! The powerful punch hit the ferocious palm, causing devastating shockwaves to sweep out from the center of the collision. The powerful shockwaves twisted the space around them, and produced a large amount of sparks.
Plop plop plop…
Being hit by such a violent counter force, Shangguan Yilong was knocked back a few dozen steps before he could stabilize his body. The collision caused his entire arm to start violently trembling, and his face had turned pale. His Qi and Blood was in a messy state, causing him to feel unwell. Shangguan Yilong threw a terrified glance at Jiang Chen. Aside from the feeling of shock, there were no other words that could describe his current feelings.
“Garbage. With such a weak cultivation, you want to kill me? Get the fuck outta here!”
Jiang Chen glanced at Shangguan Yilong, then he just ignored him. In an incomparably imposing manner, he walked step by step toward Han Yan and group, just like a God of War. He looked around with his bright eyes and said, “Which one of you want to kill my brothers? You can give it a try now!”
Overbearing! Domineering! No one could compare with him!
Jiang Chen’s arrival caused the crowd to feel as if something heavy was pushing down on their chests. His ferocious behavior shocked everyone present! With just a single punch, he had knocked back the genius from the Shangguan Clan, Shangguan Yilong! And now, he was simply looking down on everyone else. Using his domineering manner, he basically told everyone that no one could touch his brothers!
“So strong! Such a powerful man!”
“This is insane, even Shangguan Yilong is no match for him! Perhaps those mighty warriors form the Martial Palace can’t defeat him either! I believe only the two princes from the Martial Saint Dynasty can defeat him!”
“This Jiang Chen really becomes stronger and stronger with each passing moment! I’ve heard he cultivates incredibly quickly, from the Qi Province, which is just a small place, he has reached this level in such a short amount of time!”
Many people were whispering amongst each other. Jiang Chen’s domineering behavior had influenced the crowd. By just standing there, he caused many people to feel their blood starting to boil.
Looking at Jiang Chen, the trio immediately felt ecstatic. Jiang Chen had clearly become stronger than before, and although there were a lot of geniuses around here, only those two princes had the ability to defeat Jiang Chen.
The men from the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan moved once again. Even Yang Yun and Shangguan Yihong joined in and surrounded Jiang Chen’s group. But, it wasn’t only them, another young genius from the Martial Palace joined in as well. He was the number one genius from the Qingyi Sect, and he was currently cultivating in the Martial Palace. He had been told by someone when he arrived at the Island of Ice that Jiang Chen was the man who killed all the men from the Qingyi Sect, so of course he also needed to settle this score with Jiang Chen as well.
Putting aside Wu Cong, in just a short moment, there were six Combat Soul warriors surrounding Jiang Chen. Shangguan Yihong and Shangguan Yilong from the Shangguan Clan, Yang Yun, Ling Du, and Xu Shuang from the Myriad Sword Sect, and the Qingyi Sect’s number one genius.
Six Combat Soul geniuses, and none of them could be compared to any ordinary Combat Soul warrior. Even though Jiang Chen had the ability to defeat Shangguan Yilong, he would still most likely meet defeat when facing a group of six Combat Soul geniuses.
“Jiang Chen, you’re dead meat today! Now it’s time for you to pay back!”
“You have killed so many Myriad Sword Sect disciples, even if you have a hundred lives, you’re still going to be killed today!”
“Jiang Chen, if you kneel down before me and kowtow, I’ll consider giving you a quick death! This is the consequence of offending the Shangguan Clan! Our clan is a supreme existence, and a tiny ant like you can never humiliate us!”
“Jiang Chen, it’s time for us to settle the blood debt between the Qingyi Sect and you!”
All of these geniuses were filled with extreme killing intent. If their gaze could kill someone, Jiang Chen would already have been torn into pieces by now. What happened in the desert had seriously humiliated both the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan’s sovereignty, and if they couldn’t punish and kill the culprit, their face would be washed down the drain.
Wu Cong who stood on the sidelines was greatly interested by what was happening right now. He looked at the scene with a faint smile on his face.
On the other side, Wu Lang threw his glance onto Jiang Chen as well. When he thought about Jiang Chen’s imposing manner just now, he secretly nodded his head. But, what was happening right now made him furrow his brows.
“Haha, you’re all nothing but tiny shrimps in front of me, and you’re trying to kill me? This is too puerile! Let me tell you this, I have the last three bronze plates, and without me, none of you are going to enter this ancient pagoda!”
Jiang Chen laughed heartily.
“What did you just say?!”
Jiang Chen’s words caused many in the crowd to cry out in surprise, especially Wu Cong. When he heard that Jiang Chen had three bronze plates with him, his eyes immediately lit up.
“You have the last three bronze plates with you?”
Wu Cong asked.
Jiang Chen flipped his palm and retrieved thee bronze plates. Including the previous six bronze plates, all nine of them had finally appeared! As long as they placed these nine bronze plates into the stone door, they would be able to enter the ancient pagoda and start searching for treasures.
“He really has three bronze plates, what a lucky guys! But, how could he have found so many?”
“With those bronze plates, Wu Cong will not let those men from the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan kill Jiang Chen. The real treasures are hidden in the ancient pagoda, and perhaps the exit to the outside world is also inside it. If we can’t get the stone door open, we might just be trapped here forever.”
“This Jiang Chen is really lucky! Others only found one bronze plate, but he got three of them!”
A lot of people in the crowd started commenting on the satiation. Each time Jiang Chen appeared before a crowd, he would stir them all up.
“Alright, Jiang Chen, give me all your bronze plates, and I’ll make sure no one here can kill you. What do you think?”
Wu Cong said.
“Bullshit! Who the fuck are you? You have no rights to decide whether I live or die!”
Jiang Chen glanced at Wu Cong from the side of his eyes, giving him absolutely no face.
Jiang Chen’s words once again stirred up the crowd. This Jiang Chen was even more vicious than Big Yellow, he didn’t even show any respect to the prince of the Martial Saint Dynasty!
It wasn’t difficult to imagine how ugly Wu Cong’s expression was even without looking at him. The prince of the Martial Saint Dynasty who had broken through to the Mid Combat Soul realm before the age of 30, a respectable person in the Martial Saint Dynasty who had always sat up high, looking down on everyone else! No one had ever dared disobey his will, but someone had just humiliated him! This was unbearable!
“Jiang Chen, how dare you talk to me like that?!”
Wu Cong shouted out loudly.
“Hmph! I’m giving you face just by talking to you! Don’t be a poser in front of daddy, I don’t like that!”
Jiang Chen showed Wu Cong absolutely no respect! He now had the Ice Demon King as his secret weapon, and if he became angry, he would just kill everyone, including the prince. Wu Cong tried to kill Han Yan and Big Yellow before he got here, and this made Jiang Chen really angry. Those who tries to kill his brothers, regardless of power and status; Jiang Chen would treat them all in the same manner!
“How dare you?! Who gave you the audacity to talk like that to our prince?! You’re seeking death!”
Someone from the Martial Palace shouted. The man was an Early Combat Soul warrior, and he was clearly one of Wu Cong’s boot-lickers.
“Who the fuck are you, shouting in front of me? Did your parents not teach you any manners? If you make me angry, I’ll kill you on the spot!”
With his great energy, Jiang Chen shouted out loudly using the Sonic Hawk Cry. The sound waves flew toward the man and caught him off guard. Being hit by the sound-wave, the man’s body immediately started trembling nonstop.
Jiang Chen coldly harrumphed. If not for the fact that he didn’t want to reveal his secret weapon, the Ice Demon King, he might have begun slaughtering right now. All these smug and self-righteous geniuses who felt themselves superior to everyone else were nothing but farts in front of Jiang Chen, he could kill them all without showing any mercy.
Wu Lang suddenly shouted out loudly. He unleashed his energy, the energy of a Mid Combat Soul warrior! It instantly frightened everyone.
“What we have to do now is enter the ancient pagoda. I don’t care what scores you all have, you can settle them once we’ve entered the pagoda. Fighting here will do us no good at all, if any of the bronze plates are damage, we will all be trapped here forever.”
Wu Lang spoke slowly. After hearing what he said, even Wu Cong didn’t say a word, because he knew Wu Lang was right. What they needed to do now was enter the ancient pagoda. Everyone’s main goal was to find treasures and opportunities in the Island of Ice. Since all nine bronze plates had been found, the pressing matter now was to open up the stone door and enter the pagoda. If not, with Jiang Chen’s character, if these people continued provoking him, he might just destroy all bronze plates, and then no one would be able to leave the place.
“Looks like there is a smart man here.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile. Wu Lang had left quite a good impression of him. After all, Wu Lang did help Han Yan before Jiang Chen arrived. Although he had no idea why Wu Lang wanted to help them, he did at least not hit a person who was already down.
“Jiang Chen, place all the bronze plates you have onto the stone door, then we’ll open it together. Once we’re inside the ancient pagoda, in the name of this prince, I, Wu Lang will protect all of you.”
Wu Lang said to Jiang Chen. His words had clearly put him on the same side as Jiang Chen. This made a lot of people feel puzzled! A prince of the Martial Saint Dynasty, helping a rogue cultivator? This was really unusual.
“I appreciate your kindness, prince. But, it’s not that easy for them to kill me. Of course, we need to enter the ancient pagoda, but I have a condition.”
Jiang Chen said.
