“No!” the clan master of the Haoran Sword Clan hurriedly opposed.
The Seven Lethal Demon Clan’s Demon Venerable chimed in.
“Yeah, by doing so, your intention to protect him would seem too obvious, and most elites are arrogant, let alone a super-elite like Chen Chen. Once he finds out your intentions, his self-esteem will definitely be hurt. The thought of invincibility that had painstakingly been created would perhaps be affected too!”
“Yes, a true elite can suffer defeat, but he can never be belittled! We are all people who have been in similar situations and have had the same experience. You should understand that.”
Hearing this, the clan master of the Jade Tripod Alchemy Clan began to seem distracted while the rest were in disdain.
Even they were envious of Chen Chen for getting those treasures. ‘What is this old guy worried about?’ they wondered.
With those treasures, the Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor wouldn’t be able to hurt Chen Chen even if he stood still, without moving an inch.
He would at most face some defeat.
Chen Chen was now full of vigor and pride, and his mindset had probably already changed. It wasn’t a bad thing to let him suffer some defeat and stay grounded.
‘Hmph! The rich just pamper their children too much!’
‘Atrocious! Our favorite disciples are still fighting hard at the expense of their own safety!’
In the Demon Suppressing Town.
Before Chen Chen’s departure, all the cultivators of the Demon Suppressing Town came out to see him off.
Xia Xishuang stood beside Chen Chen, her eyes extremely red.
After fighting for such a long time in the Demon Suppressing Town, she had long regarded this group of cultivators as comrades. Now that the war had yet to end, she was already leaving. It was conceivable how miserable she must have felt.
Not only could she not bear to part with them, she felt really guilty too.
Of course, she felt that she had let her master down the best.
Chen Shuang sighed when he saw the melancholic Xia Xishuang.
No matter how reluctant she was, Xia Xishuang nevertheless decided to leave with him. Hence, he couldn’t let her down.
Since Xia Xishuang felt indebted to the cultivators of the Demon Suppressing Town, he shall make up for it on her behalf.
With that in mind, Chen Chen took out a storage ring quietly and handed it over to the Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan.
“Master, I have nothing else except an abundance of these material possessions. Please accept them, don’t stand in ceremony with me.”
The Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan sensed the things in her storage ring, but her hands trembled and she almost dropped it!
‘How did this brat get so many treasures!?’
‘I’d like to have some material possessions too, but I don’t have any!’
‘And… why does this brat make us all so moody and melancholic whenever it’s time to part ways? We’re already so sad, and yet, he just had to take these things out to disrupt the atmosphere!’
The Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan was speechless, and she silently put that storage ring away.
At this moment, her emotions were very complicated. On the one hand, the sadness of parting was really getting to her, but on the other hand, she was also thrilled to have obtained so many treasures.
Under the impact of the two starkly different emotions, her expression gradually became strange as she wanted to cry but couldn’t bring herself to. She wanted to laugh but was unable to either.
‘It’s all Chen Chen’s fault!’
“Everyone, you don’t have to see us off! Goodbye! We’ll meet again in the future if fate allows!”
When Chen Chen saw the strange facial expression of the Saintess of the Haoran Sword Clan, he was rather satisfied. After cupping his fists at the cultivator, he turned around to leave.
“Take care, Senior Brother Chen Chen!”
“Senior Brother Chen, take care! Look after Senior Sister Xishuang well!”
The cultivators behind Chen Chen exclaimed loudly while he waved his hand at them. He then put an arm around Xia Xishuang and left blissfully, his back facing the cultivators of the Demon Suppressing Town.
The group of cultivators flew for more than an hour before finally reaching their destination.
There was a long stretch of mountains with a large canyon in the middle, which was considered an opening.
Without even thinking about it, Chen Chen took out the city and placed it in the middle of the canyon.
Under the stimulation of spiritual power, the city quickly expanded, and in no time, it turned into the size of the Demon Suppressing Town, blocking the opening completely.
“Let’s call this city, Wufeng City, from now on.”
Chen Chen declared loudly as he looked at the city.
The cultivators echoed in unison with joy written all over their faces.
This place was filled with the sounds of birds chirping and the fragrance of flowers. The sound of a waterfall could also be heard vaguely. In comparison to the barren land of the Demon Suppressing Town, this place was simply heaven on earth.
That made many people wonder if they were there for a vacation instead.
Chen Chen was extremely satisfied. He turned his head to the side and said to Xia Xishuang who was still a little sad, “Xishuang, this is a nice place.”
Xia Xishuang smiled. The environment here was indeed beautiful, and it had made her feel a lot less miserable.
Afterwards, the group of cultivators began to set up tents in the city.
Compared to buildings, tents were much less susceptible to vibrations so, in similar cities, human cultivators lived in tents.
However, before the tents were set up properly, a majestic voice echoed in the valley.
“Chen Chen! Turns out you’re really the one guarding this place! It was really worth the trip here!”
Hearing this voice, Chen Chen looked at the sky on the other side of the valley, only to see an old fox looking at Wufeng City with a hideous grin. The delirium and mania in his eyes could be felt from thousands of meters away.
Chen Chen put down the things that he was holding and said loudly, “Old fogy, you’d better go back and rest in retirement. This is not a place where you should be!”
“How sharp-tongued! Hah, that woman beside you, must be Xia Xishuang, huh? I’ll definitely take revenge on you for killing my daughter!”
Hearing this, Chen Chen hurriedly took out a messenger token from his storage ring and soon got a clear idea of where this fox was from.
He turned out to be the Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor, the father of Demon Emperor Hu Lian whom Xia Xishuang had killed with the Breaking Dawn Sword.
Compared to Hu Lian, the Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor was much more narrow-minded. After Hu Lian died, he blamed her subordinates for failing to protect her well and killed them as punishment.
Now that he had finally found the real culprit who killed his daughter, he was full of burning vengeance.
“This demon must die!”
Chen Chen decided that he would kill the Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor.
Anyone in this world who wanted to harm Xia Xishuang would have to die. Even if he was a Void Refinement realm expert, Chen Chen would dare to kill him.
“Chen Chen, if you have the guts, come out and fight me, if you can beat me, I will never bother your Dao partner again.”
The Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor continued when he saw that Chen Chen didn’t respond.
Hearing this, Xia Xishuang’s expression changed, and she was full of anger.
The Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor was a late-stage Essence Soul realm expert after all. Yet, he challenged Chen Chen, who was in the early-stage Essence Soul realm, to a fight. How shameless!
“Old fogy, you’re much more thick-skinned than I imagined.”
Chen Chen said coldly.
With his current strength, he might be able to trump the majority of mid-stage Essence Soul realm experts, but it would still be difficult to do so when facing late-stage Essence Soul realm experts.
Of course, it would also be a piece of cake if he could suppress the enemy with a cultivation method and then send a group of underlings to mob him, just like what he had done to kill the fourth prince of Great Jing.
“Chen Chen, aren’t you known as the top elite of the human race? Why? You won’t even dare to take responsibility for the feud that your Dao partner has gotten into? You’re just a coward!”
The Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor’s words were provocative.
Chen Chen subconsciously clenched his fist, the killing intent in his eyes completely unrestrained. Seeing this, Xia Xishuang, who was at the side, hurriedly comforted Chen Chen. “Don’t fall for his trick, he is deliberately provoking you!”
They had been together for such a long time, and Xia Xishuang was basically certain of what kind of person Chen Chen was.
He was excellent in all aspects, but he cared too much about pride.
Especially when she was concerned, he would easily ignore everything else and protect her.
“I know…but this damned Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor has really gotten into my nerves. I shall see what he can do to me!”
Chen Chen gritted his teeth, took a step forward, and got ready to leave Wufeng City and meet the Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor.
However, at that moment, another angry voice came out from above the canyon.
“You’re so shameless, you think you can bully the weak just because you have a high cultivation level, huh? Who do you think you are?”
As soon as the voice sounded, the Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor was directly blasted hundreds of meters away and got stuck in the cliff.
Chen Chen rubbed his eyes, only to see that a demonic cultivator that had an unrestrained and domineering aura had suddenly appeared in the same spot where the Wind-Breaking Demon Emperor was originally at. His hair was messy and draped down his back.
He had powerful Qi and Blood which was more than ten times stronger than that of the Heaven-Defying Demon Emperor!
Chen Chen murmured, and the anger in his eyes vanished immediately while he smiled in surprise.
