Chapter 687: King of the Sword
Seeing Huang Tianba flying over quickly from the distance, Nubis laughed aloud, “I don’t need your help. I can finish him off myself.” Nubis suddenly radiated with a dazzling golden light. Countless strands of golden threads shot out from his body, flying towards Jin Tian abruptly. A portion of the golden threads tightly wounded around Jin Feng’s Ruler Armament, while the other portion wrapped around Jin Feng. It enveloped his body like a cocoon, completely immobilising him.
“Argh!” Jin Feng yelled angrily upwards. The Saint Force within him surged out like water from a broken dam, attempting to forcefully break the golden threads.
However, the golden threads were not everyday objects. Not only were they abnormally tough, they were extremely pliable. No matter how hard Jin Feng tried, he was unable to break through the binding.
“Old man, unless you have the power of the Fourth Heavenly Layer, don’t even think of escaping from the binding of my golden threads I have created. In front of me, the great Nubis, you won’t even have the ability to run away.” Looking at Jin Feng who was currently trying to break out with all of his might, Nubis could not help but sneer at him. Afterwards, he used Spatial Force to arrive in front of Jin Feng in a flash. He used his right hand as a claw, directly passing through the golden threads and stabbing Jin Feng in the chest. He dug out the bloody heart from Jin Feng’s body.
Sniffing the heavy, bloody smell that permeated into the air, his eyes became vaguely bloodshot. The sharp smell of blood had already began to slowly excite the bloodthirsty nature of his bloodline.
Nubis stared ruthlessly at Jin Feng who was currently wrapped in golden thread and in great pain. Tightening his grip, he immediately crushed the heart in his hand. He smiled coldly, “Isn’t it very painful? I’ve already forgotten how many people I, the great Nubis, have killed. As the first human Saint Ruler to die by my hands in the past few years, you should feel very honored. Now, allow me to end your life.” A golden ball of light suddenly appeared out of Nubis’s right hand. Most of the power from the golden thread had already gathered around his hand, but just when he wanted to crush Jin Feng’s head and wipe out the origin soul, a soaring Sword Qi suddenly rush over from far away. The swiftness and ferocity of the Sword Qi was rarely seen in the world. It was like a terrifying gas that filled the surrounding space with great killing intent.
In the next moment, a loud and clear voice accompanied the soaring Sword Qi from the distance, “Nubis, let me finish him off.”
The bloodshot redness in Nubis’s eyes slowly receded. Along with it, the bloodthirsty nature that had just been excited also slowly receded. As a Class 7 magical beast, although Nubis was unable to change the innate nature of magical beasts, he was still able to control his emotions at will.
Nubis returned to normal very quickly. He turned around and looked at Jian Chen who was currently approaching him. He could not help but feel shocked and mumbled, “Isn’t it just a Ruler Armament? Why do I feel that Jian Chen has completely changed? That bearing actually even made me feel fearful. Since you want to finish off that old man, I, the great Nubis, will let you do it. I’ll also get to see how powerful you are with the presence you are giving off.”
The golden threads binding Jin Feng returned to Nubis and Jin Feng also regained his mobility. Afterwards, he did not hesitate in the slightest, immediately giving it his all to flee for his life.
A sneer appeared on Huang Tianba’s face, “In front of my Solunar Bow, there has not been a Saint Ruler that has successfully escaped.” Huang Tianba grabbed the bow on his back, and a golden energy arrow formed from Saint Force quickly appeared.
However, just when Huang Tianba was about to shoot the arrow, a Sword Qi rushed over from the distance. He only saw that several kilometers away, Jian Chen had swung his sword and a powerful, meter-long Sword Qi radiating with a dark, beautiful glow approached Jin Feng with an unbelievable speed. The Sword Qi was made entirely of Chaotic Force and contained extremely terrifying power. Wherever the Sword Qi had passed over, it would cause the space to crack.
The Sword Qi was so quick that it seemed to be able to teleport, completely exceeding Jin Feng’s escape speed. Just after fleeing for a few kilometres, Jin Feng was caught up by the Sword Qi. Afterwards, it passed through him like a hot knife through butter.
“Argh!” Jin Feng immediately gave off a shrill cry. Chaotic Force was extremely powerful. When the Sword Qi formed from Chaotic Force had passed through his body, a small amount of the force was deposited into his body. At this moment, the tiny amount of Chaotic Force was wreaking violent havoc in his body, quickly obliterating his inner organs. His powerful Saint Force was actually unable to do anything about the tiny amount of Chaotic Force. No matter how he tried, he was unable to extinguish the Chaotic Force.
“Just… just what is this power?!” Jin Tian’s heart was filled with dread. The residue power in his body was the first time he had ever seen such a powerful energy. Before, he had not ever seen or heard such a power, because the strength of it had exceeded his understanding to the various forces of Tian Yuan Continent.
“What a great energy! That strike actually is completely equal to one from a Fifth Heavenly Layer Saint Ruler. Brother Jian Chen, just… just… just how did he become so strong? Even if he had obtained a Ruler Armament, his strength definitely could not have increased so greatly.” Huang Tianba sighed in surprise secretly. The power of Jian Chen’s strike had shocked him, because he knew very well that Jian Chen had just become a Saint Ruler.
However, when Huang Tianba thought about it again, he remembered how Jian Chen was outstanding in every aspect and could not be judged on a normal standard. As a result, he was relieved of the previous thought. He only stared at Jian Chen with a complicated expression, and used a voice only he could hear to mumble, “Looks like the publicly recognized number one expert of Tian Yun Continent will appear again soon. Brother Jian Chen has such unbelievable accomplishments even though he is still in his twenties. Other than the city lord of Mercenary City, Mo Tianyun, perhaps there is no one else in the Tian Yun Continent that can be compared to him.
Nubis was also completely stounded. He stared at Jian Chen flabbergasted and was extremely uncalm in his heart. He had naturally felt the strike Jian Chen had struck out. Even though he possessed the body of an ancient beast, he definitely could not withstand the blow.
As a magical beast, he possessed a heaven-sent advantage and was stronger than humans in various aspects. However, Nubis could clearly feel that the Sword Qi struck out by Jian Chen actually possessed an extremely terrifying power. Not only was the power extremely overbearing, it was filled with destruction. With his innate and terrifying instincts as a magical beast, Nubis had even felt that there was nothing in the world that could stop the destruction of the terrifying power.
“That terrifying power isn’t recorded in my inherited memories. Does this mean that it’s never appeared on the Tian Yun Continent before? Perhaps it’s just because no Silver Striped Golden Snake has come across it before.”
“I really wonder whether Jian Chen is a reincarnation of Mo Tianyun now. Other than Mo Tian Yun, who else on the Tian Yun Continent has such terrifying talent and battle capability? Also, the force used by Mo Tianyun was just as terrifying.” Nubis glanced at Jian Chen with an extremely complicated expression. At this moment, Jian Chen’s status in his heart had already undergone some minor changes.
With the fusion of man with sword, Jian Chen had become a sword. His entire body had suddenly turned into something similar to a sharp sword and charged at Jin Feng. Although his speed was not as fast as travelling with the use of Spatial Force, it was not much slower.
In the blink of an eye, Jian Chen had arrived in front of Jin Feng. He poured the Chaotic Force from his body into the Ruler Armament and the glittering glow of the Ruler Armament was immediately suppressed, giving off a dark, beautiful glow.
Jian Chen quickly swung his hand. The Dragon Slaying Sword immediately turned into densely-packed sword which enveloped Jin Feng. With every blow Jian Chen struck out, there were profound principles behind them. The swordplay was extremely exquisite, as if it was heaven-made. It was was so perfect and so flawless.
“Argh!” Being enveloped by the swords, Jin Feng gave out a shrill cry. Fresh blood constantly splashed everywhere and in a short two breaths, Jin Feng had already turned into a blood-washed man. Horrifying wounds covered on his body and he had no inch untouched.
In such a short moment, Jian Chen had caused over a thousand wounds on Jin Feng’s body.
Nubis and Huang Tianba who were spectating from afar gasped together. They looked at Jian Chen in astonishment. At this very moment, a thought appeared in their heads simultaneously: What a fast sword!
“Who would have thought brother Jian Chen is actually so terrifying with a sword. Before, I definitely underestimated him. Perhaps this is brother Jian Chen’s true strength. Such a fast speed in striking is just too scary. If it’s speed, who can be his opponent?” Huang Tianba said in his heart.
Whoosh! At this moment, the Dragon Slaying Sword flashed, turning into a blur which slid across Jin Feng’s throat. Jin Feng’s head and body immediately separated, with his head thrown high up into the air.
Jian Chen’s expression was cold and shot a swift but forceful glance at Jin Feng’s head. Afterwards, he immediately chased after it. The Dragon Slaying Sword in his hands gave out a deep hum. It was the sound created from the great drag between the high-speed sword and the air. Afterwards, he directly thrusted out in the simple fashion, piercing Jin Feng’s head in between the brows and travelling to the other side of the skull. Jian Chen did not wait for Jin Feng’s origin soul to escape and the Chaotic Force contained within the Dragon Slaying Sword immediately erupted, blowing up Jin Feng’s head and directly wiping out the origin soul hidden inside altogether.
