Chapter 424: Destroying Shuiyue, Enraging Sunchaser
Master Shuiyue focused her attentions when she heard the reminder that a near death Elder Silverroc had issued. A feeling of helplessness rose in her heart. She couldnâ€™t believe that Jiang Chen had improved so quickly!
The secular brat whoâ€™d been almost killed by Chu Xinghan in front of the Second Crossing years ago had progressed so rapidly in a few years? He killed two of three ninth level spirit realm cultivators facing him in almost the blink of an eye!
And now, her life was in danger as well.
A trace of regret truly flashed through her heart at this moment.
She suddenly felt that sheâ€™d paid too much of a price for one Long Juxue. She even had to pay the price of her life now!
â€śShuiyue, you took part in slaughtering my clan and seizing the Hall of Healing, didnâ€™t you?â€ť
Jiang Chen turned to advance on Master Shuiyue now that heâ€™d killed Elder Silverroc.
The bone club in his hand locked tightly onto Master Shuiyue.
Master Shuiyueâ€™s face was drained of all color. Her eyes roared back to life again after regret flashed by, displaying a crazed look. â€śJiang Chen, I admit that youâ€™re a genius, but so what? Today, I will perish together with you!â€ť
Jiang Chen snorted derisively, his eyes forming the evil golden eye again. The golden light shot forth violently as it locked onto Master Shuiyueâ€™s consciousness.
The evil golden eye was most adept at destroying enemies when theyâ€™d lowered their guard.
When heâ€™d destroyed Elder Silverroc, it had been because the elder had underestimated his opponent and hadnâ€™t paid attention to the strength behind this art.
Master Shuiyue was now absentminded and distracted, a moment in which her dao heart was the least stable.
Jiang Chen could tell with a glance that this was when an opponentâ€™s mental defenses were the weakest.
This was when the evil golden eye would find it the easiest to sneak in!
Master Shuiyue had already sunk into madness at this point, prepared to detonate her spirit ocean and take Jiang Chen down with her in a bloody battle.
She suddenly felt a tyrannical strength shoot through her eyes when the beam of golden light arrived and dived deep into her soul.
Although she trained in the arts and techniques of ice, she too had a feeling of falling down to an icy cavern in this moment.
She circulated her spirit ocean and realized that her consciousness seemed to have been confined. She couldnâ€™t move her body according to her will!
This discovery scared Master Shuiyue witless as a thick sense of fear exuded from her eyes. She suddenly thought of Elder Long Luo.
â€śThis is bad! Iâ€™ve been hit by his demonic art!â€ť
Master Shuiyue howled tragically and tried to break free of the restrains of the evil golden eye. However, she had no idea what sheâ€™d fallen victim to and thus naturally couldnâ€™t speak of breaking free of it.
Jiang Chen laughed derisively as he once again hauled up the bone club with a flash of his body.
â€śShuiyue, your biggest mistake in this life was to scout Long Juxue. Now let me send you on your way!â€ť
Master Shuiyueâ€™s yet charming face was now filled with fear. Regret, fear, despair, and hatred all filled her heart.
Golden light flashed in front of her as Jiang Chenâ€™s bone club arrived in front of her.
A stern roar suddenly came from the air. The owner was a noticeable distance away, but had ripped through the void with his voice to ring next to Jiang Chenâ€™s ears like a clap of thunder.
â€śOld monster Sunchaser!â€ť Jiang Chen wasnâ€™t the least bit unfamiliar with this voice.
Although Master Shuiyueâ€™s soul had been confined by the evil golden eye, she still possessed some of her consciousness and was gladdened to hear the forefatherâ€™s arrival. She immediately whistled sharply a few times, calling out to him for help.
The origin realm forefatherâ€™s aura was indeed astonishing. Even though he was such a distance away, his roar had encompassed the strength of his enormous true essence and had caused Jiang Chenâ€™s attack to halt briefly.
â€śJiang Chen, if you dare touch a single hair on Shuiyue, I will hunt you down no matter the cost!â€ť
Sunchaserâ€™s tone was urgent, brutal, and full of concern.
Master Shuiyue was his subordinate, but also his forbidden pleasure. There had always been an inexplicable relationship between the two of them all along.
However, their seniority was different, so they couldnâ€™t openly dual cultivate.
Even so, Shuiyue was Sunchaserâ€™s most cherished and beloved. Their relationship was exceedingly hidden, and no one within the sect knew of this.
When Sunchaser had just emerged from his closed door cultivation, heâ€™d felt unsettled and a wave of unease. When he questioned those around him carefully and learned that Jiang Chen had escaped from the Eternal Spirit Mountain, even directly charging to the Shangyang Kingdom, and that even Master Shuiyue had brought two elders with her to the Shangyang Kingdom.
This news had greatly alarmed Sunchaser. He knew that his ill at ease feeling was because Shuiyue had met with danger.
Therefore, Sunchaser didnâ€™t pause at all as he emptied the sect of senior executives and brought them all with him.
He rushed to the Shangyang Kingdom with the fastest speed possible.
Sunchaser had already detected the situation when Jiang Chen had brought the bone club crashing down on Master Shuiyue, but sadly he was too far away and unable to rescue her. This was why heâ€™d issued the warning.
Although Jiang Chenâ€™s attack had been slowed, this didnâ€™t decrease the killing intent in his heart.
So what of an origin realm?
Jiang Chen showed no hesitation at all even if he were to face Sunchaserâ€™s rage in the next moment.
He shook his right arm and sent the bone club smashing down.
It connected solidly with Master Shuiyueâ€™s face and killed her on the spot.
Master Shuiyueâ€™s body crumpled, her eyes staring straight at Jiang Chen, unaccepting of her death and dying with great regret. She couldnâ€™t believe that sheâ€™d died in the moment that forefather Sunchaser had arrived to save her.
â€śHow dare you, lowly scum!!â€ť
Sunchaser felt as if his heart and mind were splitting open when he saw this scene. He saw Master Shuiyue fall down, but couldnâ€™t save her.
He threw his head back and howled, his rage as if the raging waves and thrashing seas that soared up to the heavens like a tsunami, covering the skies in his fury.
â€śJiang Chen! I swear that I am less than human if I do not strip you of your tendons, skin you alive, and burn your bones to ashes today!â€ť
Sunchaser had dominated the sixteen kingdom alliance for hundreds of years. Even the forefathers of the other sects didnâ€™t dare kill those of the Purple Sun Sect in front of him.
This Jiang Chen had actually dared kill Shuiyue in front of him!
This wasnâ€™t just simply killing a person, but deeply offending and a provocation against his incomparably noble position!
In the sixteen kingdom alliance, no one had ever dared naysay him as he ran rampant through all the sects.
Itâ€™d only ever been him controlling the life and death of others, and others listening to him.
When had it ever turned into someone dare challenging his authority, dictating the life and death of his sect, and being indifferent to his threats and warnings??
All of this made Sunchaser grow almost mad in his rage.
â€śDie, dumb animal!â€ť
Sunchaser transformed into a ball of red light as he flexed his hand, slamming down with a hand seal that blazed like the sun.
Pressure that was an enormous as a mountain range came crashing down.
Jiang Chen knew that he wouldnâ€™t be able to take this hit that an origin realm cultivator had put his full force behind.
He curled up his body and had a lotus vine directly dragon him beneath the ground.
Sunchaser howled angrily in succession as his eyes grew red from bloodlust. He screamed in rage, â€śJiang Chen, you will be hard pressed to escape death even if you fly through the skies and earth today!â€ť
Sunchaser flicked his hand as a broadsword appeared in his hand, rising up in his two handed grasp as if a wheel of the blazing sun and dancing with astonishing flames.
The light from the broadsword transformed into a slab of cutting power that cleaved straight into the ground.
A deep moat immediately appeared in the ground as if a bull plowing the fields, extending into the ground for a good ten feet.
A frosty look glinted in Sunchaserâ€™s eyes as he shot towards Gouyu and the others in the distance, shouting, â€śKill all the intruders!â€ť
This command was naturally issued to the Purple Sun Sect senior executives following from behind.
The Purple Sun Sect had completed emptied out this time. Sect head Zixu Zhenren and many other elders will holding actual power in their hands had all arrived.
The sectâ€™s great army has quickly made their way over to encircle Gouyu and the others.
Gouyu rather calmed down at this moment. Even though the Purple Sun Sectâ€™s army had arrived, their numbers were greatly less than the Swordbird armyâ€™s.
â€śYounger sister Huangâ€™er, take advantage of the pitched battle later to slip away. Youâ€™re not of the Jiang family and so they wonâ€™t strive to keep you.â€ť
Gouyu looked at Huangâ€™er with a trace of apology in her eyes.
Huangâ€™er was rather composed as she smile faintly, â€śDonâ€™t bet n such a rush to leave elder sister Gouyu. Have some more confidence in your young master!â€ť
Numerous vines suddenly shot out from the ground at this moment.
Jiang Chenâ€™s figure suddenly bounced off of one of the vines and he leapt onto the back of his Goldwing Swordbird. The Goldwing Swordbirds all started to move and set up their defensive formations after a clear whistle from Jiang Chen.
The power of several hundred Goldwing Swordbirds setting up the Eight Trigrams Assimilation Formation was absolutely astonishing.
When Sunchaser saw Jiang Chen once again reveal himself, it triggered his rage and he growled lowly, â€śJiang Chen, your death is nigh!â€ť
Sunchaser was as if a mad beast at the moment, striking without abandon as he would and completely oblivious to everything else around him. His figure flashed as he shot into the sky.
Several hundred Goldwing Swordbirds shifted their wings in unison. Layers of golden colored light slowly formed into a ripple that ricochetted towards Sunchaser.
Sunchaser thrust his palm towards the ripple but was shook all over instead, his arm actually growing numb!
This attack prevented his advance!
A blow from a third level origin realm had been unable to destroy his opponentâ€™s formation!
Sunchaser was shocked and furious. He waved his broadsword and swung viciously towards the heart of the formation.
The main army from the Purple Sun Sect had arrived at this point as well.
Zixu Zhenren and another group of elders all took their places, ready to join the fray in combined attacks.
Jiang Chen was incensed and reached for his storage ring, ready to take out the Millionditch Stonenest and summon the Goldbiter Rat tribe.
At the moment, patches of aqua clouds swiftly approached from the south. A low and weathered voice rolled in. â€śSunchaser, do you want any face anymore? How dare you mobilize the power of an entire sect for one of the junior disciples of my Precious Tree Sect?â€ť
The voice belonged to forefather Thousandleaf of the Precious Tree Sect!
Judging from the looks of things, it would seem that the entire Precious Tree Sect had emptied out as well.
Sunchaserâ€™s face grew cold when he heard this and he looked over to the south. His killing intent immediately exploded. â€śEveryone attack with all your strength! Kill Jiang Chen first and then terminate the Precious Tree Sect!â€ť
He would see things through no matter the consequences.
Sunchaser was in the full throes of his fury at the moment. He hated everything associated with Jiang Chen!
And the most common way in that Sunchaser expressed his hatred was to slaughter everything in sight and wipe out the clan!
Jiang Chen had wanted to use the Goldbiter Rats, but abruptly changed his mind when he saw those from the Precious Tree Sect arrive. He laughed heartily and completely activated the Lotus, hovering around the formation and providing ad-hoc cover for the Goldwing Swordbirds.
He held throwing daggers crafted from the Raven Kingâ€™s tail feathers in his hands, the Godâ€™s Eye sending out splendid light as he searched for an opening in front of the formation.
He was prepared to give the senior levels of the Purple Sun Sect a lethal blow at any time.
