Chapter 1551: Driven Back (Three)
The other Origin realm experts from the World of Forsaken Saints watched Jian Chen slay elder Zhang. They were shaken, causing the elders to reveal drastically different expressions and the protectors hearts to churn, almost losing their composure. Some of them feared and dreaded Jian Chen.
As a Returnance expert, elder Zhang had been felled by Jian Chen's sword in less than three moves. Although elder Zhang had been restrained, three moves was enough to indicate just how powerful Jian Chen was.
Jian Chen had only needed three moves to kill elder Zhang, who possessed the power to free himself temporarily. If he attacked any Receival experts, would they not have to watch their deaths approach them since they were completely immobilized? Even if they fled in the form of souls, it would be difficult for them to avoid death. What happened to elder Zhang was the best evidence.
More and more people among the Receival protectors from the foreign world realized this, and they felt fear, because they were not like the Returnance experts at all. The Returnance experts could temporarily free themselves from their bonds by exposing their full strength.
Jian Chen had already charged off toward a second Origin realm expert from the World of Forsaken Saints. He targeted another elder, ignoring the Receival experts for the moment. It would not be difficult for Xiao Ling, Tie Ta, Changyang Mingyue, or Houston to kill the Receival experts. Only the Returnance experts could threaten them.
Now that all these Returnance experts had been restrained, he needed to kill as many as possible. With every Returnance expert the World of Forsaken Saints lost, the pressure the Tian Yuan Continent faced would lessen.
Jian Chen's second target was Cheng Jingyun. She was a mid Returnance expert, but she had been heavily injured during her battle against Changyang Mingyue. She had not recovered yet, so her wounds remained, drastically impacting her strength. It would be relatively easier to kill her.
Cheng Jingyun's eyes suddenly narrowed as she became solemn. She knew just how strong Jian Chen was. Even Xiong Zhong, who was at late Returnance, had been defeated by him. Even if she was in peak condition, she was not the opponent of someone so powerful, let alone right now, heavily injured and trapped by the azure streams of light.
Cheng Jingyun could no longer bother with maintaining her wounds. She endured the outcome where her wounds would rapidly worsen as she erupted with her full strength. She pushed herself to her limits, forcing herself into a peak condition. She forced open the restraints.
However, she paid a very heavy price. She vomited a few mouthfuls of blood and became even more pale. Her wounds rapidly worsened. She would not last very long at all.
Cheng Jingyun gritted her teeth as determination flashed through her eyes. In this moment of life and death, just for a tiny chance of survival, she abandoned everything to face her opponent in her strongest form, not caring about harming the essence of her life. She swung her whip. As it flew through the air, it continuously grew longer, wrapping around Jian Chen with an azure light. A dragon's roar seemed to erupt from the whip in the meantime.
A cold light flashed through Jian Chen's eyes. He swung the Zi Ying Sword at the whip with a resplendent glow. The whip immediately exploded with azure light. The weapons produced sparks when they collided. The deafening roar of a dragon completely materialized at that moment along with a dragon's aura.
At the same time, the moment the Zi Ying Sword came in contact with the whip, it was wrapped up by the whip, which was several thousand meters long. It was like an agile viper that coiled around the Zi Ying Sword.
Jian Chen's eyes suddenly narrowed. He could not help but reexamine the whip. The whip was extraordinary. When his sword struck the whip, it felt like he had hit a dragon instead, producing sparks when they touched. The whip seemed to have been transformed from a dragon.
Shortly after that, Jian Chen violently shook his hand and the Zi Ying Sword immediately exploded with light and sword Qi. It broke free from the whip's restraints in a single moment. Wielding the sword in his right hand, Jian Chen gently kicked off the whip with the tip of his toes and shot off toward Cheng Jingyun like a loose arrow.
Cheng Jingyun's whip danced furiously in the air. The whip immediately turned and, at the end of it, the figure of an azure dragon appeared, preventing Jian Chen from getting any closer. A shield that was three meters long and formed from the coiled whip appeared before Cheng Jingyun as well.
Jian Chen guarded himself with his special glow while he shot toward Cheng Jingyun as a streak of light. He used a single strike to disperse the dragon and moved through the air at an extreme speed. He approached Cheng Jingyun's shield like he was unstoppable.
The Zi Ying Sword glowed brighter. The tip of the sword landed on the center of the shield and immediately produced a great boom. The shield collapsed and Cheng Jingyun vomited blood. She was blown back, suffering a heavy blow.
Heavy killing intent appeared in Jian Chen's eyes. He immediately pursued, having made up his mind to make Cheng Jingyun fall under his sword. He did not go easy on her at all just because she was of the opposite sex.
"We need to assist Cheng Jingyun. He may be strong, but killing him is only a matter of a few attacks if we work together," a Returnance elder reasoned out. Many people immediately erupted with their full strength, temporarily breaking free from their bonds.
However, the streams of azure light expanded at that moment, erupting with an even greater force to keep the Returnance experts trapped. The Returnance experts were no longer able to break free in time to assist Cheng Jingyun.
At this moment, a great boom rang out. Ouyang Yangwen erupted with surging power and struck the azure streams of light with his full strength using his sword, immediately causing them to disintegrate. The azure streams of light were able to trap mid Returnance experts, where they could not quickly break free even with their full strength, but it was rather difficult to keep Ouyang Yangwen trapped. After all, Ouyang Yangwen was just too powerful. His battle prowess was on par to those who had just broken through to Reciprocity. He remained trapped out of his free will earlier in an attempt to exhaust the divine hall's power.
After breaking free, Ouyang Yangwen charged toward Jian Chen without any hesitation at all. A blood-red world appeared behind him as a scarlet sun, as red as blood, sank below the western horizon. A crescent moon, also red like blood, slowly rose from the east, rising high up in the sky. It radiated a demonic light.
"First Transformation of the Blood Sun and Crescent Moon, Force of Sunfall!" Ouyang Yangwen cried out. The blood-red sun in the bloody world behind him seemed to fuse with his body. He used its power to produce a shocking sword Qi. The sword Qi was completely red, possessing the power of the blood-red sun. It shot toward Jian Chen with lightning-like speed and a demonic red glow.
