Chapter 1899: Attack
The voices of the protectors from the Earth Spirit sect boomed through the entire provincial city.
At that moment, countless people stopped what they were doing no matter how important it was. They all stared at the sky in surprise, looking around for the source of the voices.
Ever since Jian Chen defeated Yang Kai of the Yang family, the Tian Yuan clan had become the greatest clan in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian, replacing the Yang family. Additionally, the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan, Jian Chen, had become known as the greatest expert below Godkings in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian. Not to mention the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian, but he was even famed in the neighbouring divine kingdoms. No one dared to provoke him.
However, not only had someone provoked Jian Chen, but they even spoke without any mercy at all. They arrogantly asked for Jian Chen to receive them on his knees. The boldness stunned many people.
In particular, the final sentence that mentioned they would remove the Tian Yuan clan from existence shocked all the people in the provincial city.
"Who is it? Aren't they just too arrogant? Shouldn't they have a look at what the Tian Yuan clan is? They're the most powerful Overgod clan in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian now."
"What place is the Heavenly Moon Empire? I've never heard of it. And what is this Earth Spirit sect? They seem pretty powerful. They've sent seven protectors that act so arrogantly, completely looking down on the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan."
"The Tian Yuan clan cannot be offended. Although I don't know who they are, I believe the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan will never spare them."
"The patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan is a powerful, vicious person. I heard he killed three Overgods from the Empyrean Demon Cult in just a few moves. That's equivalent to the ancestors of large clans. They're all peak experts in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian."
Discussions rose up around the city, but without any exceptions, most of the people held great confidence for the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan. There were even many people who looked forward to the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan teaching a lesson to the big-mouthed people who had come to cause trouble.
Many of them had not heard of the Earth Spirit sect and the Heavenly Moon Empire before. Only a small fraction of the Gods had heard of the Earth Spirit sect before. They became stern as they worried for the Tian Yuan clan.
The two remaining Gods in the Wayner clan heard the calls across the entire city as well, and they became extremely excited.
"The protectors of the Earth Spirit sect have come. Xiao Yan is also a protector. They should be his seniors and juniors. Quick, go contact Xiao Yan."
"The protectors of the Earth Spirit sect have come to support our Wayner clan. Fantastic, that's just fantastic. Today is the day we rise up."
The two Gods who were even older than Wayner Yan scurried excitedly to where Wayner Yan cultivated as quickly as they could.
At the same time, Jian Chen frowned. When he heard the protectors' words, a vicious light immediately flashed through his eyes. He immediately abandoned master Chanlong and shot off as a streak of light.
Jian Chen hovered above the huge city walls outside the provincial city. He stared ahead sharply and emotionlessly.
Before him stood seven people in uniform attires. They had their arms crossed, and they looked at Jian Chen arrogantly as if he was nothing.
There were a total of five men among the seven of them, and two of them seemed to be close to middle age. Their lips seemed to have curled into a sneer as their gazes towards Jian Chen were filled with evident coldness.
The two of them were also the most powerful among the seven. They were late Overgods.
The other three men retained a youthful appearance. There were two early Overgods and one mid Overgod.
The last two people were women who seemed to be around twenty years old. They wore long dresses that showed off their beautiful, slender figures. They were quite pretty.
The two women were both mid Overgods.
"As soon as we called for Jian Chen of the Tian Yuan clan, you immediately appeared. Are you Jian Chen from the Tian Yuan clan?" An early Overgod young man studied Jian Chen. His arms were crossed as he said leisurely. He seemed like he was fooling around.
"That's right. I'm the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan, Jian Chen. However, this is the Dong'an province, not your Earth Spirit sect. As a result, please dismiss the arrogance you possess in the Earth Spirit sect when you come here," Jian Chen said calmly.
The young man laughed when he heard that. He stared at Jian Chen like he was challenging him and said, "Oh, you're actually threatening us now. But that's exactly what we're going to do to you. What can you do about it?"
"Junior Tu, stop wasting so many words on him. Jian Chen, haven't you heard what we said before? Why don't you kneel when you receive us seven great protectors," the other early Overgod said sternly.
The five other mid and late Overgods hovered in the air as they stared at Jian Chen coldly with crossed arms. Their gazes were threatening as if they were not disdained to talk to Jian Chen with their arrogance.
Jian Chen's eyes became cold when he was faced with the naked provocation of the protectors. He said coldly, "Even two puny ants dare to ask me to kneel? Are all the people from the Earth Spirit sect like this?" Jian Chen's voice was also filled with deep disdain.
He was not exaggerating things either. With his current strength, early Overgods were indeed like ants before him.
However, the faces of the two early Overgods sank. Killing intent filled their eyes as they said coldly, "Jian Chen, you're looking to die. Allow me to show you what happens when you underestimate the protectors of the Earth Spirit sect." With that, the two of them took out their saint artifacts and directly attacked Jian Chen.
"Gushing Sword Qi Startles the Heavens!"
The two early Overgods called out. They swung their swords and sent two huge strands of sword Qi through the air that shot towards Jian Chen with lightning speed.
The five other protectors all stared at Jian Chen in great interest when the two people struck out. They wanted to witness Jian Chen's strength through the two of them.
They had just hurried over from the Earth Spirit sect, so they did not understand Jian Chen's true strength too well. They only knew that their junior, Wayner Yan, had suffered a defeat at Jian Chen's hands.
However, Wayner Yan was also an early Overgod when that happened. He was roughly just as powerful as the two people who attacked Jian Chen. The two early Overgods had struck out together. Moreover, they had used a secret technique from their sect, so they were much more powerful than regular Overgods. Together, they could take on a mid Overgod in a battle.
