Chapter 1775: Chanlong's Scheme
The young man that was hidden amongst the crowd and commanding all the cultivators almost leapt up when he saw Jian Chen's actions as if Jian Chen had crossed his bottom line. His face completely sank and powerful killing intent and surging fury raged in his gaze towards Jian Chen.
"Jian Chen, if you dare ruin what I've set up, I'll never forgive you!" The young man bellowed out as terrifying killing intent permeated his surroundings. He immediately charged over as quickly as he could in an attempt to stop Jian Chen's strands of sword Qi.
As the young man charged towards Jian Chen, his presence steadily rose as well, and it instantly reached his limit. He was no early God and was clearly an Overgod.
"A late Overgod?" Jian Chen became stern as he glanced towards the young man. The sword Qi that shot towards the people in the formation moved even faster than before now.
The young man charged over; he let loose a furious roar as his presence surged. He had reached his full speed, transforming into a streak of light. He wanted to use his body as a shield to block all the sword Qi.
However, even with his strength at a late Overgod, he was still a little slow. When he arrived before the dense cluster of sword Qi, a small portion had already approached the huge teleportation formation, heading towards the people in the formation.
Immediately, miserable cries rang out. In the blink of an eye, several hundred Origin realm cultivators and Deities were riddled with holes. Sword Qi had even passed through the heads of a few people, wiping out their souls.
Just this single attack claimed the lives of several hundred or even over a thousand Origin realm cultivators and Deities. Blood splashed into the sky and fell, making it seem like it was raining blood. Swathes of lifeless corpses fell from the sky.
Even though there were several tens of thousand people who took part in the formation, the formation was so detailed that the teleportation would fail even if a minute error occurred. The deaths of all the people directly damaged the teleportation formation severely, preventing it from continuing its operation.
The huge teleportation gradually dimmed. The deaths of the people had prevented the formation from filling up with energy and continuing to work. As a result, the other people in the formation suffered a powerful backlash, and they all vomited blood and became heavily injured.
"Jian Chen, you've ruined everything! I will never forgive you!" The late Overgod roared out angrily. He was utterly furious as terrifying killing intent permeated his surroundings; it was enough to cause people to shiver.
"So close! It was so close! If you gave me just a little more time, I would have been able to transport her away. At that time, everything she obtained from the dwelling would have been mine. I could have even learnt about many more things from the soul that recovered her body. God dammit. It was just the final step…" The young man roared out furiously inside. His mood had changed so drastically that he had almost gone berserk.
He had expended so much effort and a paid a hefty price to secretly cast down a teleportation formation under the noses of all the people present. Just when he was about to watch it all succeed, Jian Chen unexpectedly killed his way over, reducing his efforts to nothing.
At the same time, all the Overgods who pursued fairy Hao Yue saw the young man. All their faces paled from anger.
"Master Chanlong, it's actually you…"
"Master Chanlong, didn't you say that you wouldn't be taking part in the fight for Godking Duanmu's possessions, so you left the dwelling? I never thought you would be so sly, secretly casting down such a great teleportation formation outside the dwelling…"
"Master Chanlong, your actions don't seem to match your status…"
"The other side of the teleportation formation must be extremely dangerous. If we were transported, we would probably be as good as dead. Master Chanlong, we will remember this. Let's wait and see what happens in the future…"
The Overgods all called out angrily. Many of their faces sank because fairy Hao Yue was not the only one who had fallen into the formation earlier. There were several pursuing Overgods as well. Once the formation was activated, fairy Hao Yue would not be the only one who was transported away.
The young man completely ignored the insults the Overgods spewed. He charged towards Jian Chen furiously. As he swung his hands, he immediately threw out banners for formations that flew towards Jian Chen.
His appearance also underwent a drastic change at that moment. He became a gray-haired old man. He was master Chanlong.
Jian Chen drifted backwards gently, avoiding master Chanlong's formation banners from afar. At the same time, he launched strands of sword Qi towards the formation banners.
Master Chanlong formed a seal with his hands. Every single banner he had tossed out shone with dazzling light as powerful ripples of energy expanded. The banners he threw out actually connected in that moment. In the end, it formed a huge python that was several hundred meters long.
The python was completely assembled from the inscriptions of the formations. The presence it gave off was no weaker than late Overgod. As master Chanlong extended a finger towards Jian Chen from the distance, the huge python immediately charged towards Jian Chen as it wriggled its tail.
On the other hand, Master Chanlong charged towards fairy Hao Yue.
"We can never allow a sly bastard like Chanlong to succeed…" A person immediately cried out among the Overgods. Soon afterwards, all the Overgods who had never forgotten about Godking Duanmu's possessions charged towards fairy Hao Yue as well.
However, under the disturbance of master Chanlong's disc, the space there thickened, causing the Overgods to all slow down when they charged into the area.
Master Chanlong was the only one that remained unaffected.
On the other side, Jian Chen battled against master Chanlong's huge python that had been constructed from formation banners. Jian Chen formed a seal; immediately, a golden sword Qi condensed, shooting towards the python's head as a golden streak of light.
With a deafening boom, the python emerged unscathed after taking on Jian Chen's Daluo Sword. Jian Chen's attack had only slowed down the python slightly.
