Chapter 1325: The Tao Family’s Clamor
“Your majesty, may I ask how I can give you these items?” Jian Chen asked. The sea goddess was only a soul right now, so she could not take things with her.
The sea goddess calmed down after hearing the question. She said, “Jian Chen, first go find the hall master of the Sea Goddess Hall, Yadriam. She has an Abyssal Crystal with her. The crystal only appears in the Sea of Despair, and she is in possession of the only piece that has made it out. You can find my divine hall in the Sea of Despair through the use of the crystal.
The sea goddess vanished after explaining some things to Jian Chen. She had left already.
Jian Chen looked around. He and Tie Ta were currently located in the depths of the whirlpool. If it was as before, it would have been impossible for the two of them to stand there so easily, but now that their strength had skyrocketed in the Xuanhuang Microcosm and with the weakening energy, they obviously were no longer affected as much as before.
Jian Chen stared at the energy that was gradually decreasing in the surroundings. If the Xuanhuang Microcosm had not appeared, he would have stayed here to cultivate some more. However, he had already reached the fourth layer of the Chaotic Body in the Xuanhuang Microcosm, so the amount of energy he needed to reach the fifth layer had increased yet again. The energy of the whirlpool no longer seemed very important to Jian Chen.
Nubis and the white tiger were still cultivating within the artifact space. They had ingested the various heavenly resources Jian Chen had gathered in the Xuanhuang Microcosm, including the tea made from the Comprehension Tea Leaves. As a result, their strength surged at an extremely great rate during this period of time. Their cultivation was smooth sailing, and the white tiger had formally reached Class 8, becoming a Saint King. However, since he broke through in the saint artifact, no rainbow clouds formed.
Although Nubis’ strength didn’t increase as quickly at the Winged Tiger God, he had still reached the Fifth Heavenly Layer, and he was rapidly advancing toward the Sixth. Once he did reach the Sixth, he would even be able to fight against Eighth Heavenly Layer Saint Kings with his modified Saint Tier Battle Skill. Even against the Ninth Heavenly Layer, he would able to clash a few times using the Saint Tier Battle Skill.
Jian Chen and Tie Ta left the area and made their way to the Sea Goddess Hall to complete the sea goddess’ request.
At the same time, Yadriam, who was hovering in the sky above the ruins of Mercenary City, suddenly said to the people around her, “Everyone, I must return to the sea realm for some matters, so I will leave behind the elders of the Sea Goddess Hall. If anything happens, I will hurry back as quickly as possible.” With that, Yadriam left in a hurry after handing over a few matters to the experts that had come with her. She returned to the sea realm as quickly as possible.
Two days later, Jian Chen and Tie Ta arrived at the central divine hall of the Sea Goddess Hall. They met the hall master in a room.
Although Yadriam was not enveloped by a layer of blue light right now, making her figure distinct, her face remained blurry. It seemed to be obscured by a layer of mist.
“Very good, Jian Chen. You really haven’t let her majesty down by successfully bringing back what she needs. However, the Sea of Despair is no safe place. Even emperors can die there, so I need to make sufficient preparations before we go there. We will leave in three days,” Yadriam said to Jian Chen. She had learned everything from the sea goddess while she had made her way back.
“Alright, then I will return in three days, hall master,” Jian Chen said before heading to the territory of the Turtle clan. He did not stay.
It had been half a year since he had been to the Turtle clan, so he used the opportunity to go back and have a look. He could gain an understanding of the current situation of the Turtle clan as well as deal with the enmity that had been formed with the Tao family.
Back then, Jian Chen was helpless due to the divine hall in the Tao family’s possession, but now, both Jian Chen and Tie Ta were no weaker than Saint Emperors. The divine hall of the Tao family was basically non-existent to them.
However, there was not a single clansmen of the Turtle clan seen in their territory. Though, a huge divine hall stood in the center. It was still covered with unhealed cracks, but that did not affect its awe at all.
It was the Octoterra Divine Hall that Jian Chen had left behind. It was currently being used, and all the clansmen of the Turtle clan gathered inside. No one came out.
Another huge divine hall stood several kilometers away from the Octoterra Divine Hall. It was the divine hall in the hands of Tao Zhengtian.
Tao Zhengtian and the Saint Kings that had allianced themselves with him sat on top of the divine hall. They all sneered at the Octoterra Divine Hall. It had already been several days since they had come. They had fearlessly blocked the main entrance of the Turtle clan.
“Come out, ruler of the Turtle clan. Today, my Tao family will completely finish what we started with you,” Tao Zhengtian taunted the Turtle clan as he sat on the top of the divine hall.
“Ruler of the Turtle clan, what’re you scared? You won’t even come out after we’ve blocked your main entrance. All you know is how to hide in the divine hall. Do you plan on hiding for the rest of your life…”
“Ruler of the Turtle clan, your clan is still a large one in the end. It’s one of the peak powers in the sea realm, yet you’ve become cowards right now. If this makes it out, you’ll take quite the hit to the name of the Turtle clan…”
“Jian Chen, hurry up and come out to die. How long are you going to hide in the divine hall…”
“Hahahaha, I never thought that the ruler of the Turtle clan, famed in the sea realm, was someone who feared death…”
The five Saint Kings of the alliance constantly raised a clamor. They showed no fear, as if victory was in their grasp. They did not dread the Turtle clan at all and would even send powerful attacks at the Octoterra Divine Hall from time to time, causing it to rumble. Although the attacks failed to even mark the divine hall, it annoyed the clansmen hiding inside very much.
Within the divine hall, Qing Yixuan, Tai Dou, Lan Jing, Xin Pian, and Mochas had all paled from anger. They were tempted to immediately charge out to engage in a battle t the death with the Saint Kings of the Tao family.
“We have to endure their mockery and not act recklessly. We have the same amount of 16th Star experts, but Tao Zhengtian is just far too powerful. He can take on two or three of us all by himself while the ancestor of the Moxi clan is stronger than any one of us. If we really end up fighting, we’ll lose for sure. At the same time, they definitely have something they can count on since they are flaunting themselves in such a fearless manner. So we can’t go out no matter what,” Lan Jing growled.
“Hmph, this Tao family is only bold enough to raise a clamor when the ruler isn’t present. If the ruler was present, I’d like to see if Tao Zhengtian would be brave enough to do the same time,” Tai Dou fumed. He was quite furious.
Qing Yixuan’s face had sunken. She said through gritted teeth, “Where the bloody hell has Jian Chen gone? Isn’t he taking it a little too easy as the ruler of the Turtle clan? Always going missing, he even disappears for several months on end. It’s almost impossible to contact him. He always throws such a huge mess at us to deal with. Look at it now. We have so many people, yet we’ve been frightened into the divine hall by the Tao family, and all we can do is stay here. We have to endure their insults as well. Hmph, this sure is the first time I’ve been forced to go through something like this.”
