Chapter 1009: Death Hunt (Three)
Jian Chen's expression could not help but change, as he felt the might within Kaiser's punch. He instinctively knew that the divine hall would definitely be reduced to ruins completely if this attack landed. Moreover, it would possibly be irreparable damage.
The divine hall was already heavily damaged, so it was no longer able to resist Kaiser's punch that was close to his full strength.
Terrifying energy coiled around Kaiser's fist. Just this simple attack possessed an earth-shaking aura. Space became as fragile as tofu before it, ripping open easily and turning into darkness.
However, just when the punch was about to strike the divine hall, it suddenly disappeared. Kaiser's punch missed and struck the space before him. It caused the space to tremble violently.
Jian Chen had stored the divine hall away. He did not want it simply destroyed like this after he had obtained it through so much difficulty. Then, a golden streak of light shot out from his forehead and instantly turned into a hundred-meter-tall golden tower. It hovered above his head as he flew toward Mercenary City.
"You sure have quite a few treasures, but it'll be difficult for you to escape death no matter how many you have," sneered Kaiser. A cold light shone from his eyes, which displayed his determined killing intent.
Kaiser disappeared as soon as he finished speaking. He reappeared before Jian Chen and hurled out at simple punch at him.
Kaiser's attacks were extremely simple, without any fancy tricks to it. However, every single one possessed an unbelievably great might, enough to easily annihilate the surroundings.
The saint artifact above him immediately began to fall. It stopped in front of Jian Chen. With a violent boom, Kaiser's fist landed on the saint artifact like a lightning bolt. The powerful force directly knocked it backward, and it slammed heavily into Jian Chen who was behind it.
Spurt! Jian Chen immediately vomited a mouthful of blood and shot backward along with the saint artifact. The sound of his ribs breaking was faintly audible. The collision from the saint artifact was comparable to a strike from a Ninth Heavenly Layer Saint King, so Jian Chen struggled to defend against it even with his Chaotic Body. He became quite injured.
A head-sized dent appeared on the saint artifact after it resisted Kaiser's punch. It was clearly much tougher than the Octoterra Divine Hall.
Jian Chen shot backward like a cannonball. He was directly catapulted out of the depths of the Cross Mountains and arrived in the outer boundary of the mountain range.
Houston suddenly raised his head in a valley over ten thousand kilometers away from Jian Chen, as he plowed the ground. His indifferent eyes lit up in a shocking fashion as he cast his gaze into the distance.
"It's two Class 9 Magical Beasts from the Beast God Continent. They actually entered the continent sneakily. Weird, where are Jian Chen's two experts that possess the origin energy items? Why do I only feel one of them? Is the other one not with him?" Houston mumbled with a deep voice. He immediately became extremely ugly when he thought of this possibility. "If that's the case, Jian Chen's in trouble." With that, Houston tossed aside his hoe and ripped open a Space Gate easily. He directly disappeared through it.
Jian Chen's Chaotic Force had filled his body long ago, as he pushed everything that the Chaotic Body could provide to the maximum. He had drawn his Emperor Armament as well and shot a powerful sword Qi time after time at Kaiser with the saint artifact protecting him. He knew his current attacks could not harm Saint Emperors at all, but it could slow down Kaiser temporarily at the very least.
Kaiser treated the sword Qi from Jian Chen as nothing. He struck out with a great might and shattered it all into pieces and even damaged the saint artifact several times. The dents became denser and denser as the space within it trembled constantly. It seemed like an apocalypse inside.
Although the saint artifact could resist attacks from a Saint Emperor for some time, Jian Chen could not hide in it to escape the dangers, as Kaiser would be able to take it back to the Beast God Continent and open it up slowly. At that time, it would not just be him; even the white tiger hidden in the artifact space would lose its life.
"Hmph, just what is this golden tower? There clearly isn't any origin energy, yet it can resist so many of my attacks." Kaiser could not help but become angered as Jian Chen blocked his attacks time after time. It was just humiliating for him to expend so much effort to deal with a mere Saint King.
Suddenly, Kaiser opened his hand and clenched the space up ahead tightly. He said, "Freeze, space." The space around Jian Chen froze in that instant, which trapped him in place and immobilized him. He even lost control of the saint artifact.
"I'd like to see where you run off to now," Kaiser smiled viciously at Jian Chen. Then, he arrived before Jian Chen in a flash. He directly thrust his hand at Jian Chen's chest in an attempt to dig out his heart.
"I never thought that a great expert of the Beast God Continent would lower himself to fighting a junior. If the word made its way out, you'd probably become a laughing stock." An old voice suddenly boomed in the surroundings. A thousand meters away, a Space Gate suddenly formed and a long, jet-black spike flew out. It shot toward Kaiser at an unbelievable speed, as it pierced through space.
"You're looking to die!" Kaiser's face darkened, and his hand that originally headed toward Jian Chen's heart curled up into a fist. He punched toward the spike.
The spike was knocked away by the terrifying energy that had erupted when it reached half a meter from the fist. It shot back toward the Space Gate with unbelievable speed.
Houston emerged from the Space Gate in a coarse garment and without shoes. He looked at the spike indifferently and made a slight gesture with his hand. The sharp force that propelled it immediately disappeared, and it landed obediently in Houston's hand.
Kaiser looked at Houston coldly and said, "A Saint King at Great Perfection. However, you're not my opponent. You can't stop me."
"Kaiser, you're still one of the great experts of the Beast God Continent after all. Isn't it just too far for you to bully a junior. And you've broken our agreement once again, entering the Tian Yuan Continent," growled Houston. His complexion was very ugly.
