"Old peacock, what did you call me here for?"
Lion Yan asked. He saw Jiang Chen and said with a smile. "Kid, not bad. You have already reached Eighth Grade Minor Saint."
Peacock King and Lion King were both of the same bloodlines of Lang Xingtian at the very beginning, and they had excellent impression of Jiang Chen. No one would ignore a young man with boundless potential. The same goes to Lion Yan.
Immediately after that, Lion Yan's eyes shifted to the earth devil beast, feeling a powerful devil Qi emanating from his body. He had the same look of surprise as Peacock King on the face. "Earth devil beast."
"Old lion, don't be nervous. This earth devil beast has already been subdued by Jiang Chen. How do you feel about that? You are shocked, aren't you?"
Peacock King said.
Sure enough, after hearing that Jiang Chen was the one who had subdued this Second Grade Great Saint earth devil beast, Lion Yan's face changed instantly. The degree of surprise that he had was even greater than Peacock King. Seeing the expression on Lion Yan's face, Peacock King found a psychological balance in his heart.
"All right. Old lion, come with me to do something big, but do you have the guts?"
Peacock King smiled.
"Don't joke around with me. When have I ever said no to anything that you do, Peacock King? Tell me, what is it?"
Lion Yan shouted in an imposing manner.
Jiang Chen had clearly identified Lion Yan's cultivation grade. It was the same as Peacock King, Fourth Grade Great Saint, but compared to Peacock King, he seemed slightly inferior. At any rate, his participation would provide a great help, because the patriarch of Lion Race was surely unordinary cultivator. At that time, Lion Yan alone wouldn't be able to deal with the two Fourth Grade Great Saint cultivators of Dark Shadow. As for the rest, Jiang Chen, the earth devil beast and the devil would be to deal with them.
"We'll go root out the stronghold of Dark Shadow organization."
Peacock King said word for word.
Lion Yan exclaimed. He was extremely clear about the Dark Shadow organization. It was needless to think of whose idea was this. He turned to Jiang Chen. He knew that Peacock King bore no grudge against Dark Shadow nor was it the other way round. Peacock King wouldn't go and annihilate a major power for no reason. As such, it must've been the idea of Jiang Chen.
"Lion Patriarch, this is my intention."
Jiang Chen cupped his fist at Lion Yan and repeated what he had just said to Peacock King.
"So, what do you say, old lion? Do you dare to go?"
Peacock King began to goad Lion Yan because he knew goading was the best way to deal with someone like Lion Yan.
"If you dare to go, why wouldn't I? If you want to go, then let's go. Eliminating Dark Shadow is also deemed as a world-shaking incident."
The excitement of Lion Yan was stirred up. The Dark Shadow was considered a major force that had a symbolic meaning in Saint Origin World. It was a major power with top assassins. The collapse of such a powerful force would become a historic event and any subversive of that event would be remembered.
"Before this, I have made a trip to the Devil World and have subdued a Third Grade Great Saint devil. With the combat strengths of our quintet, we won't have a problem in eliminating the stronghold of Dark Shadow."
Jiang Chen said very confidently.
Peacock King and Lion Yan rolled their eyes and almost fell to the ground when they found out that this bastard had subdued another Third Grade Great Saint devil. They were asking in their hearts if he not have be so heaven defying, because after all, he was merely an Eighth Grade Minor Saint. What was going to happen when he advanced to Great Saint realm?
Actually, the fact that Jiang Chen was able to edify these two devils were absolutely accidental. With his present strength, and without the help of the blood talisman, it was simply impossible to edify an earth devil beast.
When they were about the leave Spiritual Space Mountain, a world-shaking roar was heard.
"It's the voice of Big Yellow."
Jiang Chen's expression changed. A few people rushed out of the main hall and saw the whole sky above the mountain covered with dark clouds and lightning and heard continuous thunder. All the dark clouds were condensed in the sky above the seclusion spot of Big Yellow. There were continuous blood-red lightning within the clouds which looked like the scene of the end of the world. That kind of invisible heavenly force frightened one's heart and trembled one's soul.
"It's the heavenly tribulation, Big Yellow is breaking through into Great Saint realm."
Lion Yan had a look of delight.
"Motherf*cker, this is the Nine Major Tribulation. This bastard is not going to undergo the tribulation in Spiritual Space Mountain, is he?"
Peacock King rolled his eyes. Anyone who could attract the Nine Major Tribulation during the Saint Tribulation was enough to show that the person was a super genius. That year, the Greatest Saint also faced the Nine Major Tribulation during his Saint Tribulation. However, this kind of tribulation couldn't be carried out in Spiritual Space Mountain, otherwise, the mountain would be ravaged terribly, causing heavy losses. This was what Peacock King was most worried about.
But then, Big Yellow clearly had also already figured this out. When the clouds were just condensed out, Big Yellow turned into a golden light, shooting away from the Spiritual Space Mountain. The lightning clouds followed him speedily as he moved.
"Let's go over there and see."
Jiang Chen's body flashed and was the first to chase after Big Yellow. It seemed that Big Yellow had gotten huge benefits from the totem divine seal, which allowed him to break through into Great Saint realm in this very short period of time. This was an undeniably great thing. After Big Yellow passed through the heavenly tribulation, Jiang Chen would ask him to join him in eliminating Dark Shadow, which would provide him another powerful assistance.
After the tribulation, although Big Yellow would only be a First Grade Great Saint, given the unordinary Dragon-Horse Divine Beast Bloodline in his body, he was powerful enough to fight an ordinary Third Grade Great Saint. Virtually every Second Grade Great Saint who encounters him would die without a doubt.
The birth of a Great Saint was a major event that needed to be celebrated. Big Yellow's lightning tribulation almost shook all the people in Demon Race. Lang Xingtian and Heavenly Leopard King had appeared. The relationship between the two had eased a lot. They now felt that the arrival of Big Yellow was the blessing of Demon Race and the future of the race would all be placed on him.
"Look, it's Big Yellow. It's scary that he breaks through into Great Saint realm before Leopard Wei."
"Look at power of this heavenly tribulation, it should be the Nine Major Tribulation. It's really fierce. The totem divine seal he obtained has brought tremendous benefits to the entire Demon Race. Looks like God is helping our race to thrive."
"That's right. Big Yellow is a divine beast. He represents the auspicious omen. Today, because of his arrival, the internal contradictions of our race has been resolved, allowing us to unite again as one. To Demon Race, this is certainly a great thing."
Everyone didn't expect Big Yellow to advance so quickly. They all remembered when Big Yellow first came to Demon Race. He was only a Third Grade Minor Demon Saint. He was only a Sixth Grade Minor Demon Saint before entering the Suspended Tower, but when he came out of the tower, he had advanced to Ninth Grade Minor Demon Saint. A few days after that, he broke through to Great Saint realm. Such a breakneck speed of advancement was really frightening.
Thousands of miles away from the mountain on a stretch of wilderness, Big Yellow's sturdy body stopped under the thunderclouds. He lifted his head and eyed at the lightning above. His expression turned slightly serious. Even if he was confident, this was his first time undergoing the tribulation after all. He and Jiang Chen wasn't comparable because Jiang Chen was already an expert in handling tribulations after being struck by a series of lightning, while Big Yellow was just a newbie in this aspect.
The roar above the thunderclouds rumbled intensely. A very thick blood-red lightning was condensed. It looked like a bloody dragon with an unknown destructive force. It aimed at Big Yellow and was ready to strike at him.
"Big Yellow, you don't need to defend yourself in the first six lightning tribulations. Your physique alone will be enough to resist them. You have to take advantage of the energy in these lightning to toughen your body and enhance your cultivation. To the monks, heavenly tribulation wasn't just about undergoing it, it was a rare opportunity to take part in as well. As the saying goes, happiness and misfortune always come together. It is a rare opportunity to be able to achieve enhancement through thunderbolts. So, don't throw it away. Furthermore, you still have to save your strength for the last three lightning tribulations."
Jiang Chen's voice was sent directly into Big Yellow's ears. In this regard, Jiang Chen was indeed the right person to guide Big Yellow. He had faced this Nine Major Tribulations alone two times.
After hearing what Jiang Chen said, Big Yellow regained the calmness in his thoughts. If Jiang Chen hadn't given his advice at the critical moment, he would have been defending against the lightning from the beginning. Think about that, not only would he not reap the benefits from the lightning, he would also gradually exhaust his energy. When it reached the last three lightning tribulations, his life might be in danger due to his lack of energy.
Thunder roared. The first lighting tribulation was like a blood-red waterfall pouring down directly on Big Yellow's head. Countless numbers of lightning instantly drowned Big Yellow's body, creating crackling sounds.
A lot of people got nervous, because they did not see Big Yellow make any attempts to move in the face of the lightning strike. He bore it head on instead.
Several minutes later, Big Yellow walked out of the flashes of lightning majestically. That blow didn't do him any harm, but instead enhanced the endurance of his flesh, especially his head which was originally already very hard and called the weapon of God. After being struck by lightning, it became even more powerful.
"Truly amazing! He did not sustain any damage even after taking the strikes head on."
"That is to be expected. Big Yellow has the body of a divine beast, which is strong enough to receive the strike directly."
"But the last three lightning tribulations are the worst. I hope he can get through them undamaged."
Plenty of them were amazed by the way Big Yellow underwent the tribulation and gave him a thumbs up.
The second heavenly tribulation came. Big Yellow was doing the same thing like before. A comfortable expression can be seen on his face, as if he was going to take a bath in the pool of lightning that not only does it seem not dangerous, but also extremely comfortable which rendered everyone speechless.
