After glaring at the Essence Soul realm powerhouse, Qinglin turned around to look at Chen Chen with an ambiguous gaze.
Chen Chen turned away and avoided eye contact with the demoness, Qinglin.
Back when he stirred up some waves in the Boundless Sea using his divine senses, he felt that his divine senses were too weak.
He now realized that he wasn’t weak, but rather, the divine senses of the demoness were too strong.
He had developed divine senses a long time ago, and with the enhancement of the Divine Condensation Pearl, his divine senses shouldn’t be weaker than an ordinary Essence Soul realm powerhouse.
Due to the Divine Condensation Pearl, he could still attack with his divine senses, which was something that most cultivators who had just entered the Essence Soul realm definitely could not do.
However, this demoness…
She actually killed an Essence Soul realm demonic cultivator with her divine senses!
Although that demonic cultivator seemed to be only in the early-stage Essence Soul realm and may not be able to attack with demonic cultivators, he could probably still protect his sea of consciousness.
If Qinglin’s divine senses weren’t many notches stronger than that demonic cultivator’s, she definitely wouldn’t be able to kill the demonic cultivator just by glaring at him.
Qinglin was extremely displeased to see that Chen Chen had chosen to avoid the battle again.
Besides, there was complete chaos on the battlefield now, and one can only imagine how great of a psychological blow he must have suffered when witnessing the silent death of a Demon Emperor.
These demon elites may not be afraid of dying, but they didn’t want to die without a purpose.
No demon would be willing to die for no reason.
Hence, the demons soon began to retreat and increase in number. A moment later, all the demons on the battlefield began to retreat, and not a single one was left.
Zhang Ji was overjoyed and immediately walked towards Chen Chen.
“Big Brother! This Senior… Senior is impressive!”
As soon as he said that, Qinglin’s gaze gradually moved upwards, and her gaze became more and more condescending.
Seeing this, Chen Chen subconsciously wanted to stop Zhang Ji from continuing to praise him, but a few high-level diabolic cultivators appeared again at this moment.
“Thank you for your help, Senior!”
“Senior, you’re so profound and unpredictable! I truly admire you!”
Hearing the compliments, Qinglin wished she could raise her head high and look down at them.
“Hmph, how uninteresting.”
After saying those words aloofly, Qinglin ducked into the Little Carefree Immortal Palace arrogantly.
Chen Chen had already hidden Green Bean a long time ago.
“Psht! She’s just a servant of my underling, but she’s so arrogant!”
Chen Chen was indignant.
At this moment, all the diabolic cultivators looked at him again.
“Your Excellency, who are you?”
“I am Chen Chen, a disciple of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan,” Chen Chen answered indifferently.
“Who is that senior just now then? She looks rather peculiar, and she doesn’t seem to be human,” a diabolic cultivator asked.
“She… She’s my little brother’s underling…”
Chen Chen subconsciously wanted to tell the truth, but he somehow thought of the scene of Qinglin glaring at the Essence Soul realm demonic cultivator.
Hence, he decided not to do so, and he said with a bitter smile, “She’s indeed a senior from a different clan. Because she hates the brutal behavior of the demons, she came to help.”
“Senior from another race? Oh, I see. If there’s a chance to, please thank her for me!”
The crowd of diabolic cultivators spoke up one after another, their eyes full of respect and admiration for the strong.
Chen Chen was disappointed that no one thanked him. ‘These diabolic cultivators are truly heartless! All they care about are the strong!’
However, they ignored the tortoise behind the powerhouse and the majestic man behind the tortoise…
Zhang Ji understood Chen Chen very well, and he knew that the latter was very prideful.
He immediately exclaimed, “Big Brother, I did not expect you to have convinced such a powerful senior of another race to come to this land. I really admire you! If you hadn’t come here today, it would have been difficult for us to win this battle!”
Chen Chen smiled and looked at Zhang Ji with great relief.
‘This kid is getting more and more meticulous. He’s also getting better at talking, he’s so much more tactful than he used to be.’
The surrounding diabolic cultivators also looked at Chen Chen. After a long time, one of them suddenly said with envy, “The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan has a really shocking amount of wealth. A Nascent Soul realm cultivator actually managed to summon an Essence Soul realm powerhouse.”
“Yes, the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan is indeed really worthy of being the richest clan among the human race.”
“The Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan is impressive!”
The diabolic cultivators praised the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan again.
At this point, Chen Chen’s face was sullen. Without another word, he turned around to leave. ‘These diabolic cultivators are unbelievable!’
Seeing this, Zhang Ji hurriedly tagged along and began to comfort him.
By the time Chen Chen returned to the camp, the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord had already retreated.
Apart from that, there were also a bunch of diabolic cultivators.
The group of cultivators was dressed differently, some of whom were from the Haoran Sword Clan, and some of whom were from the Spirit Void Sword Clan. Some were wearing armor. They seemed to be the cultivators of the imperial troops.
They seemed to be there to provide support.
“I didn’t expect those old guys to still remember me.”
The Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord smiled self-deprecatingly and then glanced at Zhang Ji before turning around to leave.
Hence, Zhang Ji took on the task given by the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord and began receiving the people who were there to help.
“Everyone, please forgive me, my master has an Innate Baneful Body, and he can’t get too close to others. Otherwise, he will cause others to face a calamity.”
“It’s alright, we’ve all heard about the Seven-Slaughtering Demon Lord.”
The group of incoming cultivators expressed that they understood the situation.
After exchanging pleasantries politely with each other, a few Haoran Sword Clan disciples walked towards Chen Chen.
“Senior Brother Chen, I didn’t expect you to be here!”
“Ahem ahem, I…” Chen Chen coughed twice and wanted to say something, but he stopped.
“Don’t worry, Senior Sister Xishuang is doing very well now. Senior Brother Chen, I got 10,000 Spirit Stones from the 700,000 Spirit Stones that you casually gave us previously!”
A certain female disciple said loudly, her eyes full of admiration.
When she said that, many people glanced at Chen Chen.
700,000 Spirit Stones was not a small sum, and many people thought that they had heard wrongly.
Sensing the look of astonishment in everyone’s eyes, Chen Chen finally regained more pride. He said with a faint smile, “They’re just some meeting gifts that aren’t worth mentioning.”
“It turns out he’s Chen Chen.”
“Xia Xishuang’s Dao partner! The cultivator with the innate spirit body!”
“I heard that he has now joined the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan!”
“Could it be that he’s here to deliver elixirs on behalf of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan?”
Some of the surrounding cultivators began to discuss.
The official disciples of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan were all alchemists, and rarely would they be sent out to battlefields outside the Eastern Border.
“Senior Brother Chen, are you here to deliver elixirs? How many elixirs have the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan sent this time?”
That female disciple of the Haoran Sword Clan asked curiously after hearing the discussions around her.
“Ahem, no, I’m here to kill some enemies.”
Chen Chen felt a little embarrassed.
When diabolic cultivators got injured, they would have to treat their wounds using mortal methods such as bandaging and wrapping with gauze. Yet, the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan didn’t send any elixirs, which made him feel ashamed as a disciple of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.
The blame was to be put on his Senior Brothers and Senior Sisters, the alchemists!
However, on second thought, he realized that his Senior Brothers and Senior Sisters seemed to have been refining elixirs for him… So, the blame seemed to…
‘Forget it, I’d better make Yu Qiong take the blame. Instead of refining elixirs properly, all she does is think of gambling with treasures all day. She should take the blame.’
“Kill the enemies? Uh, Senior Brother Chen’s combat power is indeed peerless!”
That female disciple praised, but her eyes contained a trace of disappointment.
Compared to the combat power of a formidable Nascent Soul realm powerhouse, anyone would rather get a batch of recovery elixirs.
Hence, after hearing Chen Chen’s answer, the eyes of the cultivators from the other clans became dimmer too.
“Everyone, please don’t be offended. My brother came here this time to provide support as an individual. He doesn’t represent the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.”
Zhang Ji explained when he was at the side.
After he finished speaking, Chen Chen stopped him. “Zhang Ji, don’t go on any further. This is indeed the mistake of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan, and as a disciple of the clan, I can’t shirk this responsibility!”
Hearing this, everyone had a better impression of Chen Chen.
Chen Chen came to support as an individual, and he decided to do so out of humanity and righteousness. At this juncture, he even shouldered the responsibility of his clan, which showed his loyalty to the clan.
Regardless of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan, Chen Chen was a loyal person, and they couldn’t complain too much about him. After all, he had only joined the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan for a short time.
“Since it’s my responsibility, I won’t shirk it… Let me make up for the mistake and wrongdoings of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan.”
After saying that, a large Sea Spirit Ginseng with the girth of a human thigh appeared in Chen Chen’s hand, and he looked at it with his eyes full of reluctance.
“I’m sorry to embarrass myself, I don’t know how to refine pills, so I have no choice, but to resort to such means to express my guilt.”
The crowd of cultivators did not say anything and simply kept their eyes fixed on the Sea Spirit Ginseng with unparalleled horror in them.
They had never heard of or seen such a large Spirit Ginseng before! If it was cut into slices, it would probably be enough to be shared among all the diabolic cultivators on the battlefield!
“Big Brother…you can’t do this. You’ve given up so much to get this Spirit Ginseng…”
Zhang Ji suddenly exclaimed when he was behind him. Although it seemed exaggerated, he had about 30% of Chen Chen’s abilities to pretend.
“Shut up! Don’t go on!”
Chen Chen hollered and interrupted him.
Seeing this scene, the cultivators all fell silent while the scene of various dangerous situations appeared in their minds.
‘No wonder Chen Chen could win Xia Xishuang’s heart… Anyone would admire and adore him for his righteousness.’
At the same time, they unanimously developed the same thought.
‘If Chen Chen takes over the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan in the future, we should be able to live a good life in the future, right?’
