Chapter 977: The Path Lord of Carnal Desires Appears
“Your Mercenary City is sticking its nose into too many matters.” Yi Yangzi was furious, while his complexion was horrible. He was helpless against Jian Chen if he did not use the Emperor Armament to crush Jian Chen’s divine hall.
“The existence of my Mercenary City is also to protect the peace of the Tian Yuan Continent,” Tian Jian said.
The great elders of the Yiyuan sect all revealed ugly expressions after being stopped from using the Emperor Armament. They definitely did not doubt that Mercenary City had the power to stop them. Although Mercenary City did not have a history as lengthy as the protector clans, it was founded by the strongest human expert, Mo Tianyun. No one knew what else Mo Tianyun had left behind in Mercenary City.
The experts from the other protector clans looked at one another. Undoubtedly, they could not use their Emperor Armaments now that Mercenary City had interfered. But if they did not use the Emperor Armament, it would be very difficult to break through the divine hall, even if the experts from all the protector clans worked together. This was because a qualitative difference existed between Saint Emperor and Saint King. They were experts of two completely different levels of cultivation. Saint Kings used the Saint Force within them and World Force, while Saint Emperors could completely overpower World Force.
All the people from the protector clans became stunned at the situation. No one had any ideas in this moment. Although they also possessed divine halls, divine halls were not weapons and were extremely tough. They could not injure Jian Chen if he sheltered himself in the Octoterra Divine Hall no matter how many divine halls they used themselves.
“Hahaha, wonderful! Utterly wonderful! I never thought that the ten protector clans would also have a moment where they can only give in, forced into such a situation by a junior,” an odd laughter resounded in the surroundings at this very moment. An evil-looking middle-aged man had appeared up above from nowhere.
The man did not come through a Space Gate. Instead, he had hidden himself there for quite some time but no one present had realized.
“Path lord of carnal desires, it’s actually you.”
All their expressions changed and became rather ugly when they saw this man.
“Hahaha, correct. It is indeed I, the path lord. Surely I haven’t frightened anyone with my sudden appearance,” said the path lord as he laughed gently.
“There’s nothing to do with you here, path lord. Why’ve you come?” an expert said coldly. The path lord of carnal desire’s sudden appearance was unwelcomed.
“Hmph, I can go wherever I want to go. Since when were you in charge of where I went? You still don’t have the authority,” sneered the path lord of carnal desires. Afterward, he looked toward Jian Chen and smiled, “Jian Chen, you are impressive, much stronger than I was back then. I really do admire you for being courageous enough to go against the protector clans. I remember, back when I had your level of strength, I snuck into the Heaven’s Incense school to peep at the current school master showering. Though I had only peeped a few times before being chased all over the continent by the most powerful person in the school. He chased me for ten whole years before finally being satisfied. I was nowhere like you, opposing the protector clans all by yourself and making them helpless against you.”
“Path lord, do you not know shame?” A woman who seemed to be roughly thirty years of age stared at the path lord of carnal desires furiously. She was among the experts of the Heaven’s Incense school. Her gaze made it seem like she was tempted to flay him alive.
“Sister Yun Xiang, it has been two thousand years since we last met. You’ve already become a great elder of the Heaven’s Incense school, but I’ve seen every part of you whether I was supposed to see it or not. Why don’t you join me and become my eighty-ninth wife?” The path lord of carnal desires smiled evilly.
The woman became pale-white as her chest heaved heavily. Her beautiful eyes burned with rage.
Jian Chen could not help but become curious as he stood on top of the divine hall. He wondered exactly who this path lord of carnal desires was. He actually dared to make fun of a Saint King from the Heaven’s Incense school, and even view the school’s experts as nothing.
“Be careful, this path lord of carnal desires is a Saint Emperor. He’s the only Saint Emperor on the continent of this day, and he’s enough to break through your divine hall.” Tian Jian’s voice appeared in Jian Chen’s ears, immediately throwing him into shock. Jian Chen’s gaze toward the path lord became filled with fear.
The path lord smiled evilly and took a single step forward. He arrived on top of the Octoterra Divine Hall and before Jian Chen in that very instant. He said, “Jian Chen, you have an enmity with the people of the Yiyuan sect. Ling Yuanzi wanted to kill you all those years ago, so he cannot be forgiven so easily. Although you destroyed his body, his soul remains. With what the protector clans are capable of, it won’t take long before Ling Yuanzi fully recovers. You can’t steal his soul back at all with your current strength, so why don’t we make a deal? I will teach the Yiyuan sect a lesson for you and give you Ling Yuanzi’s soul. After that, you give me the Winged Tiger God. How about that?”
Jian Chen’s heart sank when he heard that the path lord of carnal desires had also come for the white tiger. Jian Chen said, “Path lord of carnal desires, you’re already a Saint Emperor now. Why must you fight over the Winged Tiger God?”
The path lord smiled evilly and replied, “I naturally have my own intentions for wanting the Winged Tiger God. You don’t need to care too much about them. Jian Chen, are you going to agree to the deal or not? Your divine hall isn’t very tough before me.”
“Path lord, I will not be handing the white tiger over to anyone, unless it decides to follow them itself,” Jian Chen said with determination.
The path lord remained calm and said, “If that's the case, I’ll force the Winged Tiger God to follow me on its own accord.” He then raised his hand and an extremely tremendous energy quickly gathered. This was the power of Saint Emperors, enough to make Ninth Heavenly Layer Saint Kings pale.
“Stop!” A loud voice boomed at this very moment, causing the surrounding space to tremble. Shortly afterward, a Space Gate suddenly appeared and two ordinary-looking people emerged. It was Rui Jin and Hei Yu.
Jian Chen stared at the two of them in disbelief. They had separated in the Lunastron Pit previously, and Jian Chen thought he would never see the two of them ever again. He never thought they would actually appear on the Tian Yuan Continent completely unharmed. This surprised Jian Chen but also filled him with joy.
After all, the two of them had helped Jian Chen on Dragon Island. Particularly Rui Jin, who had collected a large amount of Dragon’s Saliva. Jian Chen had always felt grateful toward the two of them.
The path lord looked toward the two of them and a gleam of light immediately flashed through his eyes. He said, “It’s actually two magical beasts at Great Perfection of Saint King. You two are looking for your deaths by coming here.”
Rui Jin and Hei Yu both looked toward the path lord of carnal desires and they became stern. Rui Jin growled, “A human Saint Emperor.”
“Seniors Rui Jin and Senior Hei Yu, please leave immediately. The path lord of carnal desires is a Saint Emperor. You’re not his opponent,” Jian Chen panicked as he yelled toward the two of them.
Rui Jin and Hei Yu’s seriousness disappeared when they heard that, now replaced with a sneer. They said, “So what if he’s a Saint Emperor? Today, we will try the strength of a Saint Emperor.”
