Chapter 846: The Strongest Human
Jian Chen paid attention to the changes in the Heavenly Enchantress’s expressions rather anxiously. Seeing that she did not overreact, he immediately relaxed slightly and after hesitating, for a moment, he said, “Heavenly Enchantress, let’s go onward and have a look. Let’s see if we can found our way back.”
The Heavenly Enchantress sat dejectedly on the ground, as if she could not hear Jian Chen at all. She did not react to him at all.
Jian Chen sighed gently and lowered his head to think. He stood up from the ground and gazed at the location where the Yinyang Qi came from. He said, “Don’t you want to find out exactly what forced us? If you want to know, come with me.” With that, Jian Chen paid no more attention to her, turning around and walking off into the distance.
The Heavenly Enchantress slowly raised her head. She stared at Jian Chen’s back which constantly grew smaller with mixed emotions. Gently biting her lip, she hesitated slightly before she slowly followed Jian Chen in the end.
The two of them maintained a distance of thirty meters between them as they traveled and they eventually arrived at a deep ditch of a thousand meters. This was where the two huge pillars of light were three days ago.
Standing at the edge of the ditch, Jian Chen did not hurry down. He focused his eyes on the very center of it. He could vaguely feel some extremely obscure ripples of energy and the ripples were so powerful that it even made him shocked.
The Heavenly Enchantress also walked up from behind. Despite the wound in her heart, she had already calmed down and her face was once again hidden by a veil. She stood three meters away from Jian Chen at the edge of the ditch. At the same time, she looked down into the very depths with her eyes that were still filled with misery. She could obviously feel the extremely obscure but powerful ripples of energy too.
“Master, it’s here. This is where the Yinyang Qi radiated from.” Zi Ying’s voice sounded in Jian Chen’s mind.
“We can’t expand our presence at all here. Master, you should go down and have a look.” Qing Suo’s impatient voice also appeared in Jian Chen’s head.
Jian Chen became stern. Strands of Chaotic Force surged from his chaotic neidan, filling every corner of his body. He pushed the defenses of his body to the limit. After that, he turned around to the Heavenly Enchantress. “I want to go down and see. You can follow behind me.”
She remained silent.
Jian Chen no longer hesitated and directly leaped into the ditch. He vigilantly slid down the slope as he slowly headed toward the bottom.
The Heavenly Enchantress followed closely after he leaped down. She tailed Jian Chen, slowly sliding down toward the bottom too. She was unfamiliar with everything here. She was unable to find a way out. Meanwhile, Jian Chen seemed to know quite a few secrets. Only by following Jian Chen would she get the chance to leave this place.
The two of them arrived at the bottom very quickly. The bottom was flat and had a diameter of a hundred meters. Two balls of powerful light floated quietly at the center. The balls were two meters off the ground and one was white and one was black.
“This is a Yinyang Saint Rock. I never thought that the Yinyang Qi here would be so powerful that it has formed a Yinyang Saint Rock.” The two sword spirits materialized above Jian Chen, both staring at the two balls of light in shock.
Jian Chen and the Heavenly Enchantress also looked at the Yinyang Saint Rock and observed it curiously. Jian Chen stared at the balls of light with interest for a while, before he slowly walked over.
However, as soon as Jian Chen reached fifty meters from the balls of light, a white figure appeared silently to block Jian Chen’s path.
The sudden white figure frightened Jian Chen greatly. He did not hesitate at all, casting the Illusionary Flash. He retreated twenty meters with lightning speed and only left behind a blur. He stared vigilantly at the figure that had just appeared.
Only now did Jian Chen see the figure’s appearance clearly. He was a middle-aged man who seemed to be in his forties but the man’s determined face still contained the residual handsomeness of his youth. He did not seem like the average man; his indifferent eyes were filled with condescension, as if he was the ruler of the world, as if he was God. However, his body seemed rather ethereal. He did not seem to be corporeal.
With the appearance of the man, an indescribable pressure immediately began to permeate the surroundings. At this very moment, the entire world seemed to freeze; even time stopped.
Jian Chen and the Heavenly Enchantress immediately felt immobilized. It did not just stop there; they lost sense of their bodies. It felt like their souls and bodies had just been separated and divided into two.
Jian Chen and the Heavenly Enchantress both became astounded. Just the pressure from the man was enough to make the two of them feel like their souls had separated from their bodies. They felt great shock and horror at the man’s strength.
This thought occurred to both of them at the same time because Ninth Heavenly Layer Saint Kings were definitely unable to cause such stunning feelings. Only legendary Saint Emperors could.
The man floated three meters in the air. He stared fixedly at the sword spirits above Jian Chen’s head, while some surprise appeared in his eyes.
The sword spirits also looked toward the man simultaneously. They became extremely serious. They stared off with the man for a while before Zi Ying spoke out, “Who are you? You were the one who set down the Eight Trigrams Disorientating Formation?”
A sliver of surprise flashed across the man’s eyes once again. He said, “I never thought that you two spirits would actually know about the Eight Trigrams Disorientating Formation too. Impressive, very impressive. Looks like the reason why these two puny people can come here is all because of you two.”
As he spoke, the pressure in the surroundings also disappeared suddenly. Jian Chen and the Heavenly Enchantress regained control over their bodies. They stared at the middle-aged in shock, stunned by his strength.
Staring at the man’s face, Jian Chen felt a feeling that he knew him, as if he had met him somewhere.
“Just who are you? Why do you know the Eight Trigrams Disorientating Formation?” This time, the one asking questions was Qing Suo. She stared fixedly at the man with a stern expression.
As soon as Qing Suo finished speaking, Jian Chen seemed to think of something. His expression immediately changed greatly and he cried out as he stared at the man in shock. “You’re the number one experts of mankind, Mo Tianyun!” Jian Chen was not unfamiliar with Mo Tian Yun’s appearance. He had seen his sculptures more than just once in Mercenary City and this man’s appearance just happened to be exactly the same as Mo Tianyun’s sculptures.
With that, the Heavenly Enchantress also became shocked. She stared fixedly at the man’s appearance; with this glance, a rumble immediately shook through her head. The man before her really did have the exact same appearance as the huge sculpture in Mercenary City.
“Mo- Mo Tianyun, are you really senior Mo Tianyun?” The Heavenly Enchantress cried out uncontrollably. It was rumored long ago that Mo Tianyun was already dead yet right now, the legendary person had appeared before her like a miracle. She struggled to believe it.
The man looked at Jian Chen and the Heavenly Enchantress. A sliver of melancholy appeared on his face and he sighed emotionally. “You must be from the Tian Yuan Continent. So much time has passed yet I’m still able to see people from the continent. I originally thought that no one from the continent would ever be able to come here.”
“Senior Mo Tianyun, is it really you?” Jian Chen’s voice carried some unexplainable serendipity. He was previously skeptical but he had now confirmed the man’s identity. He was the greatest expert of the humans, Mo Tianyun.
Mo Tianyun was the protector god of the Tian Yuan Continent. When the continent was invaded by the Hundred Races in the ancient times, it was Mo Tianyun who emerged at the most crucial moment after all the humans were defeated by the experts of the Hundred Races. He repelled the Hundred Races by himself and saved all the people on the Tian Yuan Continent. This was the reason why the continent had its current peace.
Although Jian Chen had never seen Mo Tianyun, he was still born on the continent. As a result, he admired and respected this savior of the continent, Mo Tianyun, very much. Right now, he had seen a legend; it would be difficult for him to not be excited.
“How is the situation between the Tian Yuan Continent and the Beast God Continent right now?” Mo Tianyun asked the two of them.
Afterward, Jian Chen narrated the circumstances of the continent. He hid nothing about the Winged Tiger God reappearing, or that the Beast God Continent had invaded. He believed that since Mo Tianyun had set down the rule where people of Mercenary City could not be hostile to the Winged Tiger God, he definitely would not do anything harmful to the Winged Tiger God.
When the Heavenly Enchantress heard about the Winged Tiger God, a sliver of shock flashed across her eyes. She glanced coldly at Jian Chen. With her intelligent mind, she had immediately guessed that the white tiger which she rode on the dragon’s island was the Winged Tiger God.
Hearing the Winged Tiger God, Mo Tianyun’s expression became rather mixed. He said, “Let me see it.”
Jian Chen knew that Mo Tianyun was referring to the Winged Tiger. He did not hesitate at all, immediately releasing the cat-sized Xiao Bai from the saint artifact. However, Xiao Bai was sound asleep right now, absorbing the medicinal effects of the heavenly resources. It did not wake up.
“Senior, the grand elder of Mercenary City once deduced that if the Winged Tiger God fell in the hands of the Beast God Continent, it would be extremely possible that the ruler would forcefully take its body, before entering the Beast God Hall to take the legacy.” Jian Chen said.
Mo Tianyun sighed gently. “It will definitely experience a rough journey as it grows. Right now, I’m just a sliver of presence left here to protect this place, to prevent anything from happening here, so I can’t leave. Also, I can’t last too much longer either. As the two of you have awakened me this time, my sliver of presence will disappear soon afterward. It can only rely on itself in the future. I am unable to help it directly.”
With that, Jian Chen sighed secretly. He became dejected.
Mo Tianyun looked towards the sword spirits. “If my eyes don’t deceive me, you two must be the sect treasures of the Sword Sect of Amethyst Heavens, the chief sect of the nine great sects, the sword spirits of the Azulet swords.”
Mo Tianyun’s words caused the sword spirits to jolt. They stared at Mo Tianyun in shock and cried out at the same time, “Just who are you?”
