"Not good, someone's coming. It's fast."
Han Yan's facial expression changed all of a sudden. A powerful Qi was approaching them at high speed from behind. He could sense that the Qi was extremely strong, incomparable to Luo Xiang and Wang Ying.
"It should be the expert of Profound Sun Sect, judging from the Qi, he must be at least a late Heaven Immortal expert."
Said Jiang Chen with a frown. With his current ability, he stood no chance against a late Heaven Immortal expert even if he expended all of his skills. After all, the gap between them was just too great.
He casted the dragon wings without delay. With Dragon Wings pairing with Flaming Wings, his speed was increased by a big notch. He turned into a green smoke and vanished speedily.
From behind, Elder Xie who was about to catch up to his target changed his expression dramatically.
"Impossible. He's merely an Earth Immortal. How can he move so fast?"
As a late Heaven Immortal expert, he understood the gap between Heaven Immortal and Earth Immortal too well. It was already astounding that an Earth Immortal expert had the ability to fly, but it was even more shocking and unprecedented when this Earth Immortal expert could fly at such speed as well.
Elder Xie was thinking of punishing the two leaders, Luo Xiang and Wang Ying when he returned, but after witnessing Jiang Chen's speed, he perished such thoughts. With such a difference in speed, it was only logical that the two of them couldn't capture Jiang Chen. They couldn't be blamed for the incident.
"Humph! A puny Earth Immortal is trying to run away from this old man's grip? It's absolutely delusional."
Elder Xie harrumphed coldly. The aircurrent around him churned. His speed was suddenly doubled. As a late Heaven Immortal expert, he naturally had much stronger means. After increasing his speed, the distance between him and Jiang Chen began to shorten once again.
"Not good. That late Heaven Immortal expert surely isn't easy to deal with. They can manipulate the airflow skillfully. Their speed definitely is incomparable to those early Heaven Immortals. Although I can move in quick speed, my cultivation base is still too weak. That bastard behind me has already locked on my Qi. At this rate, I won't be able to escape from him. It's going to be bad for us."
Jiang Chen's facial expression turned slightly ugly. With his current state, if he was tangled with the high-level expert of Profound Sun Sect, that expert surely wouldn't let him go until he died. This wouldn't do him any good at all. Thus, he needed to find a way to escape.
"What do we do now?"
Asked Han Yan. If Jiang Chen didn't have a solution for this, Han Yan would be worse than him. All he could do now was to stay in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda like an obedient kid.
As Jiang Chen was flying, his mind was racing for solution. Soon, his eyes lit up. He shifted his attention to the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
Ancestral Dragon Pagoda is a very valuable treasure of the dragon race, a supreme divine treasure that even the Immortal World's law can't control it. I suspect that those Heaven Immortals won't be able to feel the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda's existence as well. I will now fuse my bloodline and Qi with the pagoda, fully concealing my existence with it.
Muttered Jiang Chen in his heart. Although there were twelve levels in the pagoda, there was still a long way before reaching its peak - 99 levels, but Jiang Chen was incomparably confident in his pagoda. One should know that the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda could even stay unaffected in the Immortal World. In other words, such a divine weapon must possessed some very powerful origin. Thus, there shouldn't be a problem of using it to conceal himself.
When his thought reached here, he turned and plunged into the pagoda. Then it turned into a tiny dust and drifted in the air.
Shortly after hiding in the pagoda, Elder Xie emerged at the scene where Jiang Chen was at. He stopped in his tracks when he discovered that Jiang Chen's Qi has disappeared all of a sudden.
"How did he vanish all of a sudden? I have already locked on his Qi. He shouldn't be able to escape from me. Could he be using some kind of means to conceal himself?"
Elder Xie knitted his brows tightly. This is the first time that such a strange thing happened to him, but he didn't believe that an Earth Immortal could disappeared under his eyes unnoticeably, it would be ironic if he thought so.
Elder Xie unleashed his divine sense and swept across the surrounding void thoroughly without missing a single thing. He believed that the person must have used some kind of camouflage technique which he thought wouldn't work on him. The moment he found that person, he would surely tear that person to pieces. He would let the person know how tragic the consequences were to offend the Profound Sun Sect.
His divine sense swept through every place like blades, causing a rustling sound in the void. Elder Xie's divine sense covered a very large area and it was very dense. Not even a fly could escape from his perception a few dozen miles away.
When his divine sense passed through the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, he discovered nothing unusual. Every place his divine sense went was empty and no cultivator's Qi was found. After searching for roughly 15 minutes, he lost his patience and almost spurted out blood.
"Dammit! It's an evil technique. Could this bastard even ascend to become God?"
Elder Xie was infuriated. He had never encountered this kind of situation before. Jiang Chen's unnoticeable disappearance was too absurd, as if he was never here. He finally understood what the feeling of being powerless and helpless was.
"Little Chen, what kind of treasure is this? It's so powerful. Not even Heaven Immortal expert can sense it."
In the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Han Yan said, feeling surprised. There was no way that he wouldn't be surprised. He could clearly feel Elder Xie's divine sense passing over the pagoda just now, but this old man didn't even sense the least bit of their Qi. The elder's incompetence couldn't be explained through this. It was the divinity of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
"This Ancestral Dragon Pagoda is a supreme divine weapon. I have condensed it using my dragon transformation art. But it is still far from completion. I was also astonished by its' divinity before. If I'm not mistaken, only those Immortal King experts who had fully mastered the spatial law could find me hiding in this pagoda.
Said Jiang Chen. What he saw from Elder Xie made him even more confident in the pagoda. It would be impossible for any ordinary divine sense to find the pagoda's existence as it could fully integrate with the spatial law. He was sure that any expert below the Immortal King wouldn't be able to locate such a weapon.
"What the hell? So cool? Does that mean that as long as the pagoda is here, we will be invincible in One-Line-Sky?"
Han Yan widened his eyes and stared at Jiang Chen in disbelief.
"That's not entirely true. My pagoda has only twelve floors. If the trace of our activity was too obvious, the powerful Great Luo Golden Immortal expert would still be able to find some clue. Besides, there are half-step Immortal King experts in One-Line-Sky. Although these experts have yet to fully master the spatial law, they can also be a very dangerous threat to us as they already have half of the mastery."
Said Jiang Chen. At least with this divine pagoda, he wouldn't worry of being killed by any Heaven and Divine Immortal experts. This would be his greatest trump card and amulet.
"That's still very terrifying though. Look at that old man. He has already made a dozen of circles here. Haha!"
Han Yan laughed loudly. Elder Xie had been going around in circle in the area, but still found no clue about Jiang Chen's movement.
"Son of a b*tch!"
Elder Xie swore abruptly. Being in such a situation, even a very courteous person would lose its patience. The elder came to catch the enemy for destroying the ore mine and killing his people, but now, he couldn't even find a hair of his target.
Eventually, Elder Xie had no other choice. He could only return with dissatisfaction and failure.
"That old man is gone. We can go out now." Said Han Yan.
"Don't be hasty. This is an old cunning fox. He won't let this go so easily."
Said Jiang Chen. The two of them continued to stay in the pagoda for another dozen of minutes. Sure enough, the elder returned and made another circle before he really left for good.
Looking at the situation, Han Yan had to give a thumbs up to Jiang Chen. This was wisdom and experience. If that old man was an old fox, Jiang Chen would be a wise fox.
"Well, here we go."
Jiang Chen smiled, came out of the pagoda together with Han Yan. Then, he vanished into the darkness along with Han Yan.
Jiang Chen had just arrived in One-Line-Sky, so he still hadn't found a place to reside. After leaving the zone that was in Profound Sun Sect's control, they decided to head towards the direction where the Skycloud Pavilion was located.
Except for gaining an advantage in that battle, Jiang Chen normally wouldn't use flying to travel. Also, it wouldn't do Han Yan any good by bringing him through the air. Han Yan needed time to break through the higher realm. So he needed to practice on his own instead of depending on an external force in travelling.
After a day and night of running, they finally reached the edge of a city in third day's morning. Han Yan had been cultivating along the way. Not only was his injuries had fully recovered, his cultivation base had also improved by leaps and bounds, advancing to the late Human Immortal realm. Because of the help of the Ancient Divine Devil bloodline, his improvement couldn't be describe with rationality. Plus, his current state had been stable. At this rate, it would take him roughly a few days' time to reach the peak of late Human Immortal realm, leaving him only a step away from the half-step Earth Immortal realm.
Apart from his cultivation base, he also had a very powerful combat strength. Now not even ordinary half-step Earth Immortal expert was a match for him.
"Ah Yan, you improve very fast."
Jiang Chen smiled after noticing Han Yan's improvement.
"That's of course, I possess the body of the Divine Devil. It will be a humiliation to my bloodline if my advancement is too slow."
Han Yan chuckled. His present mood was a lot better than a few days ago.
"In front should be the territory of Skycloud Pavilion and there's a city ahead. Let's go over and have a look to check out the latest information."
Said Jiang Chen. He felt that he was getting a step closer to his objective after arriving here.
