Chapter 347 – Returning to the Black Sect
Staring at the back of the four figures in the far distance, everyone at the scene felt it difficult to breathe. Their journey to the Island of Ice allowed them to witness the rise of a dazzling genius; today’s battle had completely catapulted Jiang Chen to an unshakable position amongst the younger generation.
The journey to the Island of Ice was not an event that could be compared with Inferno Hell, those who came here were all geniuses! Jiang Chen’s amazing achievements would definitely cause his name to be heard throughout the entire Eastern Continent!
At the same time, these people predicted that a chaotic situation was soon going to appear in the Eastern Continent. Putting aside the fact that Wu Cong and the Tenth Emperor will definitely hate Jiang Chen for what he had done, the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan would definitely not let Jiang Chen off easily.
Those two superpowers had suffered tremendous losses! Each of their geniuses were cultivated with an enormous amount of resources, but now, all of them had been killed by Jiang Chen. It was an uncountable loss! In other words, Jiang Chen had eliminated the future of these two superpowers.
“Sigh… Chaos is coming, we better return as quickly as we can.”
“Back in Inferno Hell, Jiang Chen also killed my fellow disciples from the Ming Sect. I think I should inform them about what I saw here, we should just give up on revenge. With Jiang Chen’s current strength, we’ve simply lost the ability to so.”
“Right, I also need to ask my sect to give up on revenge. With the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan both aiming at Jiang Chen, I’m sure he won’t have a peaceful life. From now on, the resentment will only exist between the two superpowers and Jiang Chen. We can only step aside and watch the show from the sidelines.”
Many people were still unable to awaken from the great shock. Jiang Chen’s fierceness and formidable combat strength had case a permanent shadow in their hearts.
The Island of Ice had once again disappeared. No doubt, Jiang Chen was the one who benefited the most from this event. As for the rest of the people, as long as they managed to stay alive and put effort into their cultivation, with all they had gained in this trip, they would also have limitless futures.
Soon after, all the people left the desert, flying in all directions, returning from where they originally came from. As for Master Blissful, Golden Lion, and the other older warriors, they never truly entered the Island of Ice, and they found the exit a few days ago.
“Little Chen, where are we going now?”
In the far distance, four figures were flying at great speed. While flying, Han Yan asked Jiang Chen about their next destination.
“We’re going back to the Black Sect to save Little Yu.”
Jiang Chen responded. He was too impatient to return, as he had waited for this for too long. Now, not only did he possess the Nine Solar Holy Water, he had also obtained the Crystalized Arctic Ice Silkworm, a huge amount of Demon Souls from the Ice Demons, and the Black Ice Talisman. All of this was prepared for Yan Chenyu.
When Yan Chenyu awakens from her coma, she would definitely experience a great surge in her cultivation, and the Nine Yin Meridians’ potential would completely awaken. Jiang Chen really wished for Yan Chenyu to become stronger, as he knew what he was going to face in the future. It would be a long journey filled with danger and hardship, and those who followed him would become important characters in this journey. Jiang Chen could only be at peace when Yan Chenyu became stronger.
“Wakaka, this journey to the Island of Ice was amazingly exciting!”
Big Yellow joyfully laughed out. He was still excited, and hadn’t pulled himself out from the previous mentality.
“It indeed was an exciting journey, but I think we’re going to face some hardships soon.”
Nangong Wentian said with a laugh.
“That’s true. Putting aside that prince, Wu Cong, I think the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan are extremely furious, and can’t wait to eat our flesh.”
Han Yan said.
“No worries. When I withdrew myself from the Black Sect, the Martial Palace had promised to protect it. Therefore, the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan won’t have the courage to touch them. Furthermore, with the status of these two superpowers, they won’t be as disgraceful as to attack a small sect like the Black Sect, their target is me. After Little Yu wakes up from her coma, we’ll proceed to the Martial Palace.”
Jiang Chen laid out his future plans.
“You’re going to get protection from Wu Jiu.”
Big Yellow said.
“Yes. Compared to the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan, our overall strength is still too low. There is no way we can fight them, and the Martial Palace is the only place where we can truly be safe. Furthermore, I do want to check out that place.”
Jiang Chen replied.
“Little Chen, who is this Wu Jiu?”
Nangong Wentian asked in a puzzled manner.
“If my guess is correct, Wu Jiu is Wu Lang’s father, the Martial Saint Dynasty’s Ninth Emperor. And he might also be the Palace Chief who controls the Martial Palace.”
Jiang Chen explained with a smile. He had a small idea regarding Wu Jiu’s real identity, and if his guess was correct, Wu Jiu was the current Palace Chief of the Martial Palace.
In fact, the most important reason why Jiang Chen wants to visit the Martial Palace was because of the important people in his life. He needed to find the safest place for them, and with his relationship with Wu Jiu, Wu Jiu would definitely protect them at all costs.
As for himself, Jiang Chen didn’t really consider that part too much. With his own strength and abilities, he didn’t really care too much about the Myriad Sword Sect and Shangguan Clan. If he fought them in a guerilla style, these two superpowers would be the biggest losers in the end. There were a lot of people who had tried to kill Jiang Chen, but in the end, none of them ended well.
Jiang Chen was no longer a loner, like he had been in his previous life. He needed to take his friends and family into consideration, so that he could continue his journey to the top without too many worries.
“Fuck, this is incredible! Little Chen, saving Wu Jiu’s life in Inferno Hell is truly something good; you’ve created a backup plan for yourself!”
Han Yan was surprised. Big Yellow had told him about what happened back in Inferno Hell, and the most important part of their story in Inferno Hell was Wu Jiu. However, Han Yan had no clue about Wu Jiu’s real identity, that’s why he was surprised when he heard Jiang Chen’s explanation.
“Brother Jiu did help me a lot. If not for him protecting the Black Sect with the Martial Palace’s name, perhaps the Black Sect would be destroyed by now.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile. Wu Jiu was a loyal person, this was something Jiang Chen had no doubts about. Not only had he provided protection for the Black Sect so that Jiang Chen could leave with no worries, he had also sent Wu Lang here to help him. All of this proved that Wu Jiu was a friend whom he could trust.
The group continued flying with great speed. With the help of Jiang Chen and Big Yellow, the group was able to fly much faster than when they first flew toward the Blissful Island.
When they reached the ocean north of the Black Sect, it took Jiang Chen twenty days to reach the Blissful Island. But now, Jiang Chen, Big Yellow, and Han Yan, all of them had experienced a great surge in their cultivation, at least doubling their speed. Also, since they were sent to the border of the ocean after leaving the Island of Ice, it only took them between one and two days to reach the Black Sect.
The Black Sect!
Right now, the entire Black Sect had almost completely moved to the new sect grounds. The Black Sect’s new heart was located at the Redsun Town, and the underground energy vein had been completely activated, causing the place to be covered with white fog, resembling the Immortal Realm. It was clearly a perfect place for cultivation.
Numerous majestic palaces, many rows of exquisite houses; the entire Black Sect was portraying a noble aura. The current Black Sect was no longer the same old Black Sect, it had become a true superpower of the Qi Province, the one and only Black Sect.
Because of Jiang Chen, those from the Redsun Town’s younger generation had joined the Black Sect, and the elders and ordinary townspeople had also been properly relocated, and were under the Black Sect’s protection.
A grand square was purposely built right in the center of the Black Sect. In the middle of the square, a tall statue stood tall. It was built using precious stones, and carefully crafted into a young man dressed in white clothes. The young man had one hand placed behind his back, and he was looking up into the skies with a prideful expression on his face. This statue was of none other than Jiang Chen!
This statue was first built by the Redsun Townspeople, but the Black Sect had given it a revamp.
For those from the Black Sect, this young man was like an immortal existence. Without him, there would be no Black Sect. If Jiang Chen hadn’t arrived at the final moment of the ultimate battle, everyone from the Black Sect would now be dead! Each and every single person from the Black Sect had been given a new chance at life, a new birth, and in their hearts, there lived a mighty warrior!
Right now, the Black Sect was flourishing! They had merged all the resources from the Burning Sky Pavilion and Heavenly Sword Sect, and because of that, the disciples were cultivating intensively, and Daoist Black was currently attempting to break through to the Combat Soul realm. Furthermore, because the Martial Palace had a good opinion of them, the sects from the neighboring provinces had all paid them a visit, to show their good favor.
There was a mountain located near the center of the Black Sect. This mountain was designed exactly like Guo Shan’s previous mountain, and a courtyard was built right on top of this mountain. Herbs and plants could be seen everywhere.
Right now, in front of these herbs, two men stood side by side. They were Daoist Black and Guo Shan.
“Jiang Chen left over a month ago, but he still hasn’t come back. Hopefully, he hasn’t bumped into any trouble.”
Daoist Black said in a worried tone.
“He’s a man who never lacks trouble. After killing so many men in Inferno Hell, it’ll be impossible for him to go anywhere without bumping into trouble. However, those who do bring him trouble, they will only end up suffering.”
Guo Shan responded with a smile. His confidence in Jiang Chen’s ability was extremely strong, he was a young man who seemingly knew everything, and there was nothing he couldn’t achieve. Until now, none of those who had brought Jiang Chen trouble had seen good endings.
“The Island of Ice reappeared not long before this. My guess is, Jiang Chen must have gone there. With his abilities, if he is able to come out from the Island of Ice unhurt, I’m sure he will have a great surge in his cultivation.”
Daoist Black said. The news about the reappearance of the Island of Ice had spread across the entire Eastern Continent, so the Black Sect had naturally gotten the news as well.
“With Jiang Chen, I’m sure the Black Sect will prosper in no time!”
A smile bloomed onto Guo Shan’s face.
Right at this moment, four figures suddenly appeared in front of these two men in a ghostly manner. Both men were stunned for a moment, but when they saw the faces of these four figures, a joyful expression immediately emerged onto their faces.
“Brother, you’re back!”
Guo Shan was really happy to see them.
“What a strong aura, I can’t believe you’ve all seen such huge progress in your cultivation!”
Daoist Black threw an examining look at Jiang Chen, Han Yan, and Big Yellow. Even with his cultivation, he could still feel a faint pressure coming from these men. The trio’s progress since he had last seen them was very shocking to him.
“Haha, Sect Chief, Sect Elder Guo, we went to the Island of Ice and obtained some enormous benefits, allowing us to see a great surge in our cultivations! Also, Little Chen has killed many Combat Soul warriors!”
Han Yan started laughing out from his heart.
