Jiang Chen exerted his combat power to the extreme. The 320 000 dragon marks pushed his combat strength to an unimaginable extent. The Heavenly Saint Sword had turned into a dragon that danced across the sky.
Both Nie Yiyuan and the elder's attack collided with one another. It wasn't an exaggeration to describe it as earth-shattering. The darkness of the night cracked and countless of colors appeared simultaneously, it caused the people around to palpitate.
Jiang Chen let out a shocking dragon roar that echoed across the whole sky, totally interrupting the tranquility of the city. Many people had no idea what was going on. They quickly stepped out of the buildings and saw a dragonman wreaking havoc in the sky above Yi Yuan Association. Nie Yiyuan and the elder were forced back under Jiang Chen powerful attacks. Their Qi and blood surged chaotically inside of them. It gave them an unpleasant feeling which they couldn't describe in words.
"Dammit! Why is this bastard so strong?"
Nie Yiyuan couldn't help but curse. Jiang Chen's power gave him the urge to spurt out blood. Although there were lots of Immortals who had the same combat strength as Jiang Chen, there was absolutely no early Earth Immortal who was as powerful as Jiang Chen.
The experts of Yi Yuan Association sank. It was imaginable what the result would be if even the combined force of two Heaven Immortal experts couldn't even fight against Jiang Chen. It seemed like their final fate would befall Yi Yuan Association in no time. They would all end up just like the Huang Family.
Even though the experts of the Prefecture had already witnessed Jiang Chen's power before, they couldn't help but exclaim in shock because he was just too powerful. They had never seen such a young man before. It was a great blessing that they have befriended a person like Jiang Chen.
"I'm done playing with you two. Five Elemental Combat Dragon Seal."
Jiang Chen bellowed and struck out the Five Elemental Combat Dragon Seal. As this skill was struck with the Heavenly Saint Sword, its power was simply unimaginable.
For an instant, the whole sky was filled with the images of dragons. Both Jiang Chen and the Heavenly Saint Sword fused into a true dragon. The terrifying energy emitted from it instantly flooded the area where Nie Yiyuan and the elder were at. The only thing that the two of them could do now was to defend with whatever skills they had.
Unfortunately, it had become impossible for them to defend against Jiang Chen with their current condition. When the dragon image disappeared, Nie Yiyuan and the elder emerged from the scene. Both of them looked like they've been through hell. Blood was all over their bodies and wounds were everywhere. The Immortal Weapon that they held in their hands were trembling intensely.
Jiang Chen made another move. He wouldn't give them any chance to react. He appeared in front of the elder like a specter, swiped his sword across the elder's neck and the head flew skywards. The elder died instantly. His body then fell to the ground.
After seeing what just happened, Nie Yiyuan's expression changed drastically. Boundless fear was surging inside of him. How could he have the courage to continue fighting? Immediately, he turned into a ray of golden light and escaped. However, he hadn't gained the full mastery of the Spatial Law yet, and he was also seriously injured, therefore his speed was slow. Jiang Chen was able to catch up with him in just a few blinks.
Nie Yiyuan was really scared to death. Even after so many years of ruling Yan City, he had never seen such a scary person. Jiang Chen was simply too astounding and monstrous.
By now, he couldn't care much about it anymore. He was going to die anyway if he stayed behind. The only way to keep his life was to flee. So that in the future, he would have the chance to rebuild his empire.
Unfortunately, he already didn't have the chance to do so. After fleeing for two to three miles, Jiang Chen caught up with him. His robust dragon body blocked in front of Nie Yiyuan. His ruthless red and devilish eyes made Nie Yiyuan shiver in fear.
"Jiang Chen, don't, don't kill me. We can discuss anything you want, just don't kill me…"
Nie Yiyuan's voice was quivering. He knew that there was no way that he could escape Jiang Chen's grip today. He would face his death with no dignity, but he didn't want to die yet. No one wanted to die, especially when one was at the edge of death. That kind of feeling was beyond most people's comprehension.
"I have already given you the chance, but you didn't take it. So, go and die now!"
Jiang Chen would never give his enemy a second chance. Nie Yiyuan's fate had already been decided from the moment he decided to fight Jiang Chen.
The sword stabbed through Nie Yiyuan's chest. This overlord of Yan City died with unwillingness and despair. All his ambitious plan and prosperous empire had now turned into an illusion and had cease to exist.
An expert of Yi Yuan Association cried out in alarm and started shedding tears. Yi Yuan Association had always been at its peak. No one had thought that this association would suddenly turn into ash in just one night, a speck of dust in Yan City.
After killing Nie Yiyuan and the elder, Jiang Chen flew directly towards the Prefecture without returning to the scene. He didn't have to worry about the rest of the matters. He believed that Yan Dongliu would be able to handle everything. He had done the things that he needed to do for the Prefecture. Soon, he would be leaving Yan City for One-Line-Sky. From now on, the life and death of Yan City was no longer his concern. He was currently bearing another responsibility, a mission. He had to imprint these two names in his head for the rest of his life, Ouyang He and Tian Muyun.
The next day!
The news spread across Yan City fast, causing a commotion all over the city. They all happened in just one night. First, it was the experts of Huang Family being killed at the ore mine. Despite the traitor, Yuan Hong joining the Huang Family, all of the Heaven Immortal experts including Yi Yuan Association were eradicated by Jiang Chen. The two major powers then vanished from Yan City in just one night. Incidents like these were no doubt an earth-shattering news.
Everyone knew that everything in Yan City had changed. The Prefecture had become the only conqueror in Yan City and there wouldn't be any more battles among different major powers.
"That's too awesome! Could it be that Jiang Chen is the reincarnation of a Heavenly God? How could he be this powerful? Eradicating early Heaven Immortal experts while only having an early Earth Immortal expert? I would never believe it if this wasn't the truth."
"That's right. He's too terrifying. How could such a monstrous genius emerge in a small city like ours? The Prefecture must have some great fortune to get the help of such a rare genius.
"Agreed. Rumor has it that Yuan Hong betrayed Yan Dongliu and conspired with the Huang Family to annihilate the prefecture. If it wasn't for Jiang Chen's interference, it was imaginable what the would be. Now that they had made a turnaround by eliminating the other two major powers, they have already laid a good foundation for its future growth. From today onwards, all the cultivation resources will be owned by the Prefecture."
Everybody on the streets and alleys were talking about yesterday's big event. Jiang Chen had undoubtedly become the most important topic and figure. A super-cultivator like Jiang Chen was destined to create waves in every place he went.
Two days later, Yan Dongliu and Yan Qingcheng went to the courtyard where Jiang Chen lived with a spatial ring.
"Alchemist Jiang, these are the Immortal Meta Stones from the ore mine. There are roughly 30 percent of total amount in here."
Yan Dongliu handed the spatial ring to Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen smiled and kept the spatial ring like it was the most common thing in the world. The amount of stones inside the ring was no longer his concern. Since he had so much fortune with him before this, these stones weren't important at all.
"City Lord, Miss Qingcheng, I have been wanting to look for you two for something."
Jiang Chen spoke all of a sudden.
After hearing this, Yan Qingcheng's heart started to pound faster because she had guessed what Jiang Chen would say next. This was the moment that she didn't wish to see.
"Is Big Brother Jiang leaving?"
Yan Qingcheng raised his head to look at Jiang Chen with her touching eyes.
Jiang Chen let out a sigh in his heart. How could he not feel the affection that Yan Qingcheng had for him? However, he couldn't accept this kind of relationship. He still had a long path awaiting him in the future. He couldn't be delayed by any unnecessary relationship. Besides, he already had Yan Chenyu and Wu Ningzhu. He would never regret putting down this relationship.
"Yes. I will leave tomorrow to One-Line-Sky. Perhaps we will meet again one day."
Said Jiang Chen. He wasn't an indecisive man. It was a fact that there was nothing in Yan City that could make him stay any longer.
Yan Qingcheng wanted to say something but she stopped herself. Yan Dongliu shook his head, turned and left. This was the last time that they would meet each other. If Jiang Chen wanted to go, there was no way to make him stay. To a monstrous genius like Jiang Chen, Yan City was no doubt too small.
Under the moonlight, Jiang Chen and Yan Qingcheng stood opposite each other silently, making the atmosphere dull and stifling.
"I suppose that Big Brother Jiang already know what Qingcheng's thoughts."
Yan Qingcheng broke the icy silence.
Jiang Chen nodded then said. "Qingcheng, I'm not the person that you deserve to have. I already have two women in my life. Both of them are excellent women, though they aren't by my side now. Plus, I will travel every single place in the Immortal World. There will be danger, mistrust and evil everywhere."
"I don't care. I just want to be with you. Qingcheng will feel happy as long as Qingcheng is with Big Brother Jiang."
Yan Qingcheng shook her head. She didn't care how many girls Jiang Chen had. A man like him would naturally be loved by many women.
Jiang Chen sighed once more. He turned and looked at Yan Qingcheng grimly. He didn't want to deceive her anymore as that would be unfair to Yan Qingcheng.
"Qingcheng, forget about me. I'm just a passerby."
Jiang Chen placed his hands on Yan Qingcheng's shoulders. He knew how painful this sentence was, but he had to say it no matter what.
He turned and vanished in the dark night. He had left Yan City.
"Big Brother Jiang."
Yan Qingcheng shouted for him. Tears trickled down her face as Jiang Chen disappeared like a green smoke, it was like he had never appeared in her life before. However, she knew that the image of this man would forever be imprinted in her heart. At this moment, she looked as if she was suffering from a mental breakdown as she stood alone under the bleak icy moonlight.
