Chapter 1927: Slaying the Godking
"Tell me, why do you want to kill me even though I have no grievances with the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds? You even used a Godking level trapping formation to cut off all chances of me escaping. You want to kill me no matter what," Jian Chen growled. His voice was extremely cold as killing intent and fury built up inside him.
The Godking trying to kill him did not come from the Earth Spirit sect, nor did he come from some other organisation. Instead, he came from the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds that had behaved most amiably to him. This was just too surprising.
By now, the elder of the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds had already suppressed the heart-wrenching pain from his soul. After he realised that Jian Chen had learnt his identity, his face immediately became extremely ugly. At the same time, he felt much disbelief.
He had never thought that not only would he fail to kill Jian Chen with his strength, but he would even end up heavily injured with his identity exposed instead.
After all, he was not someone who had just become a Godking. Instead, he had remained as an early Godking for over a hundred thousand years, reaching the peak of early Godking. He was about to break through to mid Godking.
"Jian Chen, since you already know who I am, there's no need to say anything else. Let's fight. The only way you can leave this place today is by killing me," the Godking said coldly. He took out a pill from his Space Ring as quickly as possible and ingested it before attacking Jian Chen again with his blade.
"My identity has been exposed. I have to kill Jian Chen today no matter what," the elder made up his mind about killing Jian Chen when he struck out.
If his identity had not been exposed, he still could have chosen to retreat.
However, he could not choose to retreat now. Otherwise, there would be endless problems.
He did not possess a body as tough as Jian Chen's. Now that his soul was injured, his battle prowess was directly affected as well. He was no longer as powerful as he was during his peak.
Jian Chen channeled his Chaotic Force as he guarded his body with light. The Startling Rainbow sword exploded brightly as he engaged the elder of the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds.
In comparison to the injured elder, Jian Chen's battle prowess did not weaken at all. Even though his wounds were very deep, and he was covered in blood, he had the support of the Chaotic Body, which allowed him to unleash his full strength even when heavily wounded.
Jian Chen repelled the elder's attacks as he ingested a Soul Recovery Pill quickly to replenish the power of his soul he had expended when he used the Profound Sword Qi.
Although he could send out two strands of Profound Sword Qi each time, the power in his soul would be drained clean if he did that. At such a time, he would be reduced to his weakest state. If he could not kill the Godking with that, he would definitely become the person who died instead.
As a result, Jian Chen was only bold enough to use a single strand of Profound Sword Qi. He needed to recover eighty percent of the power of his soul before he would use the second strand.
"You want to kill me for my cultivation method, right?" Jian Chen yelled at the elder from the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds. Their battle was extremely intense, where energy rampaged through the air like waves. It was extremely ferocious.
Both of them received wounds of varying deepnesses. The elder's blade struck Jian Chen multiple times, to the point where Jian Chen would spit blood. His organs had been shaken to pieces.
The elder from the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds had also received rather heavy wounds. His body was covered with vicious slashes while he had also been impaled in the chest. His blood scattered across the sky. Every single drop of it gave off powerful pulses of energy.
However, as the battle went on, the elder's wounds rapidly worsened, causing his battle prowess to become weaker and weaker. The piercing pain from his soul affected him greatly.
If he were not a Godking and possessed an extremely powerful soul, just the strand of Profound Sword Qi would have been enough to claim his life.
Suddenly, the elder bellowed out. Invisible flames seemed to sprout up from his body, causing his presence to rapidly increase.
He had chosen to burn his vitality for greater strength. At the same time, he used a battle skill again. He used his blade to cut through space as a blur, swinging it towards Jian Chen with the might of the world. At the same time, he said coldly, "We're just shifting the blame of your death to the Earth Spirit sect. Once you're dead, no one will think it was our Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds that killed you. They'll only think of the Earth Spirit sect."
"But don't worry, Jian Chen. Although you're going to die to my hands today, our Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds will work with the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian to attack the Earth Spirit sect together in the future. It'll be like avenging you."
"Is that the case? However, I won't let the schemes of your Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds succeed. I will deal with my own grievances with the Earth Spirit sect. There's no need for your sect to interfere," Jian Chen said coldly. At this moment, he had just replenished all the power of his soul he consumed through the Profound Sword Qi using the Soul Recovery Pill.
Seeing the elder's blade approach him with the might of a battle skill, Jian Chen suddenly put the armor on him away. He used his body to endure the devastating strike while he pushed the defence of his Chaotic Body to its limits.
Blood splashed as the blade passed through Jian Chen's body with frightening power. The power had almost cleaved Jian Chen in half, causing him to constantly spit blood while his face became extremely pale.
Moreover, a great power that belonged to a Godking rapidly spread through his body. It directly headed towards his soul, wanting to destroy it.
Jian Chen coughed up a few mouthfuls of blood, but his lips curled into a cold smile very soon. With a thought, surging sword intent suddenly appeared, and the finger-sized Profound Sword Qi appeared above his head once again.
However, there was not just a single strand this time but two.
The elder's soul was already injured. Coupled with the burning of his vitality, his soul had become even weaker. Jian Chen refused to believe he had the ability to take on the two strands and survive.
Jian Chen did not feel completely confident about killing a Godking with a single strand of Profound Sword Qi, but he did when he used two strands.
The elder of the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds sensed the danger when he saw the strands of Profound Sword Qi, and his face suddenly changed.
However, he did not have the time to react at all. The two strands of Profound Sword Qi shot out at the same, disappearing into his forehead.
The elder's body immediately shuddered violently while his weakened soul directly shattered from the two strands of Profound Sword Qi. It dispersed into the surroundings, having been wiped out.
A Godking died just like that, slain by an Overgod!
At the same time, the power of Jian Chen's soul was completely depleted. He felt the world spin around him as he felt drowsy. Then he collapsed onto the ground powerlessly. His chest heaved heavily.
The Godking's power continued to rampage within him, directly surging towards his soul.
Jian Chen closed his eyes as he laid on the ground powerlessly. He used the last of his willpower to control his Chaotic Force in resistance, wiping out as much of the power as he could.
At this moment, with a loud sound, the trapping formation the elders of the Daoist Sect of Calm Clouds set down shattered.
A woman in a green dress slowly walked over from outside.
The woman was not old. She only seemed to be in her twenties. She possessed an alluring beauty, where every action and word from her possessed a fatal level of charm.
In particular, the light in her eyes constantly changed. At times, it was gentle like water, charming and extremely pleasant as if it could melt the hearts of all men.
At other times, it was extraordinarily cold, like the unmeltable polar ice caps, filled with heavy killing intent to the point where it was impossible to stare into them directly.
Jian Chen opened his eyes as he laid on the ground. When he saw the woman, his eyes suddenly narrowed, and he cried out inside, "Commander of the seventh army, Yaxi Lian!"
