Chapter 1906: The Grand Imperial Protector's Plea for Mercy
Two worried cries rang out. The only two Gods of the Wayner clan flew out as quickly as they could.
They had personally witnessed Wayner Yan being defeated by Jian Chen in a single strike, so they felt extremely worried inside. They could no longer care about how dangerous it was, and they directly shot out of the clan to Wayner Yan's side.
"Xiao Yan, are you alright?"
"Xiao Yan, you must stay calm. Don't rush into things. In the future, we won't become enemies with the Tian Yuan clan. We don't want the provincial city of the Dong'an province anymore either."
The two Gods of the Wayner clan said with concern, but when they reached the end of these words, they seemed to lose all their fighting spirit. They seemed to have become much older.
During these past few years, Wayner Yan had always been in secluded cultivation. He did not pay attention to the outside world, but the two Gods understood everything that had happened extremely well. Jian Chen had first challenged the ancestor of the Yang family, Yang Kai, and defeated him; he defeated the person who was known as the strongest expert below Godking in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian.
Afterwards, the three Overgods from the Empyrean Demon Cult attacked the Ling family in the Swordseeking province and sealed off the entire place. All the Overgods in the divine kingdom did not dare to speak out against them. Even the royal family chose to remain silent.
However, the patriarch of the Tian Yuan clan stood forward righteously and selflessly, killing his way through the Swordseeking province by himself and claiming the lives of the three Overgods. The matter made him famous.
He was an Overgod who did not fear even the Empyrean Demon Cult. With his powerful strength and willingness to kill, the very souls of the two Gods had already been affected.
They were confident that if the Wayner clan continued to stand against the Tian Yuan clan, it would only lead to their own destruction in the end.
Of course, what they worried the most about was Wayner Yan. They were now an Overgod clan, but without Wayner Yan's support, they would be nothing. They would not even be one of the more powerful clans among God clans.
"No, I refuse. I refuse to accept this," Wayner Yan choked out. His strength had broken through once again. Let alone the southern region, but he would even be considered a talent with the entire Cloud Plane in perspective for reaching mid Overgod at such a young age.
He should have been awe-inspiring and glorious, but after suffering a setback like this, he took it very hard.
Shen Jian arrived before Jian Chen with his sword on his back. He glanced at the injured protectors who laid on the ground, and he frowned, "We can't kill these people. Killing them will cause great trouble."
Jian Chen nodded slightly. He also understood that. As a result, he only heavily injured the protectors when he fought them and did not kill a single one of them.
The Earth Spirit sect was different from the Empyrean Demon Cult.
The Empyrean Demon Cult was a demonic cult. Although they were far more powerful than the Earth Spirit sect, their reputation was horrible. They were a cult that all the major organisations on the plane disliked. Once the cult did something overboard or went too far, the large organisations would not just sit by and watch. They would definitely stand forward to stop them.
However, the Earth Spirit sect was honest and righteous. If he killed the protectors of the Earth Spirit sect even when they had provoked him first, the Earth Spirit sect would have all the right in the world to deal with the Tian Yuan clan. Even the divine king would not stop them.
"Because of them, half of the provincial city has been destroyed and the other half is heavily damaged. It is nothing like how it was before. Even if they're protectors of the Earth Spirit sect, they have to pay for what they've done," Jian Chen said emotionlessly. Silently, a strand of golden thread appeared near his wrist.
The golden thread was the Primordial Godsilk that had snapped in half when it fended off the crisis of the world on the Tian Yuan Continent.
The Primordial Godsilk was an extremely rare treasure of the world. Even in the Saints' World and the Immortals' World, it was one of the best materials out there. Unfortunately, the silk had snapped, and Jian Chen's strength was nowhere near enough to reconnect the two parts, let alone forge it into an artifact.
As a result, the Primordial Godsilk was basically useless to him.
Suddenly, the Primordial Godsilk elongated from Jian Chen's wrist. One end remained wrapped around Jian Chen's arm, while the other end shot towards the protectors of the Earth Spirit sect like a snake, wrapping around them.
The injured protectors were unable to put up a struggle at all. The Primordial Godsilk tied them up firmly, completely immobilizing them. In particular, the woman who had been pinned to the wall was pulled away in an extremely brutal manner after she was tied up. The sword hilt passed through her body, creating a fist-sized hole.
"I will never spare you for treating me like this," the woman screamed out. She was extremely furious.
The only protector who did not take part in the battle could sense the horrible situation. He immediately took out a teleportation formation disc in an attempt to flee.
A gleam of light flashed through Jian Chen's eyes when he sensed this person's intentions. The Startling Rainbow sword that had been stabbed into the city wall immediately flew over, stabbing into the formation disc with lightning speed and destroying it then and there. In the next moment, the Primordial Godsilk reached over and tied him up as well.
All seven protectors of the Earth Spirit sect had been tied up now.
"Jian Chen, release my seniors!" Wayner Yan paled at the sight of this as he said through gritted teeth.
Jian Chen ignored his furious demands.
However, at this moment, Jian Chen's expression changed. Suddenly, he raised his head towards the sky.
In the sky, the space rippled slightly. In the next moment, the Grand Imperial Protector of the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian appeared silently.
"Jian Chen, please let them go," the Grand Imperial Protector concealed his presence as he said to Jian Chen in an approachable manner. The emotions in his eyes were slightly mixed.
"Let them go?" Jian Chen's face sank when he heard that. He responded, "Imperial Protector, why don't you have a look at the city? They come wreaking havoc in my Dong'an province by abusing their statuses as protectors of the Earth Spirit sect. It was a perfectly good city, but now it has been reduced to a mess. Countless people have been injured, and they even said they wanted to destroy my Tian Yuan clan. Is my Tian Yuan clan really that easy to abuse?"
The Grand Imperial Protector sighed, "Jian Chen, you must also understand that the seven of them aren't like the three Overgods from the Empyrean Demon Cult. They can't just be killed like that. Moreover, our Divine Kingdom of Pingtian currently faces the threat of the Empyrean Demon Cult. At such a crucial time, we must focus on the big picture. We can't turn on ourselves at a time like this. Dealing with the Empyrean Demon Cult is our main objective. The seven protectors have come to assist us in fending off the Empyrean Demon Cult."
The Grand Imperial Protector tossed a Space Ring at Jian Chen and said, "There are some divine crystals in there as well as quite a few healing pills. Just treat it as making up for the losses of the Dong'an province. Jian Chen, just treat it as doing it for me. Let them go."
