Chapter 1189: The Innate Chaotic Body (One)
Jian Chen chuckled. He looked at how cute and innocent Xiao Ling was and affectionately asked, "Then Xiao Ling, how do you want me to reward you?"
"The reward I want is for big brother to come visit me often in the future," Xiao Ling giggled.
"Alright, no problem. I will come visit you often when I have the time. Is that okay?" Jian Chen laughed.
"Awesome, big brother. Don't go back on your word!" Xiao Ling danced in joy. She was extremely happy.
Under Xiao Ling's lead, Jian Chen was taken to where Ming Dong and Huang Tianba had gone into seclusion. Both of them were captivated by the comprehension of the mysteries of the world and entered a state of selflessness.
Jian Chen only watched from afar. He did not disturb the two of them. In recent years, they had spent all their time here cultivating, comprehending the mysteries of the world invoked by Xiao Ling. They were comprehending them from an extremely clear perspective, allowing them to understand the profound truths of the world better. This was countless times easier compared to when they were alone, searching within the layers of mist, so the rate at which they cultivated was shocking.
"Huang Tianba has already reached the Eighth Heavenly Layer now. He's not far from the Ninth anymore, and if he continues like this, he'll probably become a glorious Saint King in just a year."
Ming Dong's rate of improvement was extremely great as well. His talent was impressive and coupled with Tian Jian and Xiao Ling's assistance, he had already reached the Seventh Heavenly Layer of Saint Ruler.
Jian Chen did not stay for too long. He promised Xiao Ling that he would visit again very soon before leaving through the Space Gate at Mercenary City.
Xiao Ling looked in the direction Jian Chen had vanished off to in reminiscence. She mumbled, "Master's smell on big brother is getting fainter and fainter. Looks like it's been a very long time since big brother saw master, but that doesn't matter anymore. As long as big brother visits me often, I will be very happy."
"Hmm… big brother said that as long as I work hard on the cultivation method left behind by master, I'll be able to see master soon. Big brother will not trick me, so I can't keep snoozing. I need to work hard on cultivation." Xiao Ling clenched her fists tightly as determination filled her face. She seemed to have made a very important decision.
Jian Chen returned to Lore City, and Rui Jin had also returned from Dragon Island with enough Dragon's Saliva. Hong Lian had also refined all the materials into formations and had come out of the artifact space. Their operation to seal up the protector Changyang clan was about to happen.
Jian Chen, You Yue, Hong Lian, and Rui Jin gathered together to discuss the plan. Only the four of them would be participating in the operation as Hei Yu was just too heavily poisoned.
"The sealing of the passage between the protector clan and the outside world won't happen very easily. We will definitely face the resistance of the protector clan or even face the attacks from the Emperor Armament. As the plan is carried out, I need to devote all my strength into casting the secret technique so I will not be able to provide assistance. It'll depend entirely on the three of you to fend off the protector clan."
"During the process of sealing, the space must maintain a certain level of stability. If the ripples are too great, it may even lead to failure, so you three need to enter the miniature world of the Changyang clan to stop them. The battle cannot occur outside," Rui Jin sternly explained. They needed to succeed this time, or Tie Ta's identity would definitely be leaked by the furious great elders.
"Rui Jin, how long do we have to keep them busy?" Hong Lian asked.
"Since we're sealing a protector clan this time, it'll take quite some time. I need four hours," replied Rui Jin.
Hong Lian frowned, "We'll be fighting in the miniature world this time. That's their lair, and with their deep heritage, they'll definitely have various trump cards they've never displayed. They'll definitely resist with everything they have as well, so it will be quite difficult if we want to keep them busy for four hours and prevent them from affecting the space outside."
"The energy within the Moon God Sceptre from my master is running out. The divine hall must be outside to use the moonlight essence, so once it enters the miniature world, it'll only be able to defend. It won't have any offensive capabilities," said You Yue.
"No matter what, we can't fail this time. If we aren't completely confident, then we can't act recklessly," Jian Chen said heavily. He could not afford failure this time since Tie Ta's identity would end up being leaked sooner instead.
"If only that girl was with us as well," Rui Jin gently sighed. He had actually thought of the Heavenly Enchantress at this very moment.
Her beautiful figure flashed through Jian Chen's mind. It was only a pity that the Heavenly Enchantress failed to obtain the Saints' Fruit from him and had left in resentment. Jian Chen knew that he would probably be turned down before he could even ask her for help.
At this moment, the gentle tune of the zither vibrated through the air after overcoming many obstructions. It was gentle and seemed to contain an endless amount of charm, able to silently impact the souls of people. Jian Chen, Rui Jin, Hong Lian, and the others all focused their attention when they heard the sound.
"Haha, she sure has come at the right time. Jian Chen, whether or not we can successfully seal up the protector clan will depend on you. Go and have a good talk with her. It'll be much easier if we have her assistance," Rui Jin chuckled as he subconsciously glanced over You Yue.
An odd light flashed through You Yue's eyes. She blinked a few times but remained silent. However, she looked at Jian Chen.
Jian Chen had not expected the Heavenly Enchantress to come at this time. He said to You Yue, "Yue'er, I'll be right back." With that, he left.
Jian Chen could not sense the Heavenly Enchantress' presence nor could he identify where the melody came from. All he could do was expand his presence to find her.
A while later, Jian Chen retracted his presence and shot into the sky. He vanished into a thick layers of clouds in the blink of an eye.
In the sea of clouds, the wind whistled in an ear-piercing fashion. Jian Chen walked through the clouds as his robes and hair were buffeted by the wind.
The Heavenly Enchantress stood in the clouds. A veil covered her face, obscuring her appearance like before, but the Zither of the Demonic Cry was no longer in her hands. Next to her stood a young, white, and chubby boy. She held onto his hand as invisible World Force wrapped around him, obstructing the whistling gale.
Jian Chen instinctively looked at the boy and his body immediately jerked. He was no longer able to shift his focus. The chaotic neidan within his dantian, which had always sat silently, began to violently tremble. Strands of Chaotic Force surged out, rampaging through his body uncontrollably.
