The Fatal Attack
The scene of the overcast sky where Jiang Chen and Big Yellow confronted the tribulation was exceedingly spectacular. It was totally incomparable to Ancestor Greenlotus’ Immortal Tribulation. One of them was a super monstrous genius and the other was a demon with Divine Beast Bloodline. Each of the lighting strikes certainly was many folds greater than the lightning faced by any average Human Immortal monk.
Big Yellow seemed as if he was bathing in the ocean of lightning. His magnificent body was spinning incessantly. Every time the lightning struck him, it only felt like an itch to him, totally harmless.
“Wakaka! This is nice!” Big Yellow yelled in excitement.
A day like this was surely very memorable and super exciting. After surviving through this, one would soar to the Heavens and to another world, like a butterfly breaking free of its cocoon.
To any cultivator who had the ability to initiate tribulation, the ocean of lightning could vastly improve their strength and power. Take Big Yellow, who possessed the Divine Beast Bloodline, for example, not just his combat strength would be improved, his physique would grow sturdier after experiencing the scary lightning strikes.
Meanwhile, Jiang Chen had no idea what the tribulation he was facing was called, but he could sense that its power was at least two folds greater compared to Big Yellow’s. Every lighting strike had the power to destroy the land below, turning it into ruins.
But then again, none of the strikes could deal any damage to him with his huge dragon body kept on swirling. Over the course of his cultivation, he had gained a great deal of experience from all the lightning tribulations he had encountered. Plus, his body had been trained to absorbed massive amount of lightning, which made him immune to any of these lightning strikes.
The Heavenly Saint Sword had turned completely into a divine-looking dragon sword that was spiralling around Jiang Chen. The light that radiated from the sword ripped the void apart. It was the Natal Weapon that had accompanied Jiang Chen in his past life and would continue to do the same in this life. Thought it had only reached the Human Immortal realm before, the scariness of its power was beyond anyone’s imagination.
“That’s amazing! Jiang Chen’s Lightning Tribulation is at least tenfold scarier than Ancestor Greenlotus’. I’m afraid that only he is capable of initiating and bearing such horrifying tribulation. If it had been us who is in his situation right now, I have no doubt that we would certainly die miserably in the ocean of lightning.”
“That’s right. I was there when Ancestor Greenlotus initiated his tribulation, but it can’t be compared to Jiang Chen’s. He is bound to achieve infinite achievements in the future. I’m certain that he won’t be an ordinary Human Immortal when he ascends to the Immortal World.”
“That’s for sure. This man has great luck that will follow him for the rest of his life.”
No one wasn’t surprised, even for those half-step Human Immortal ancestors who had the clearest understanding about the cultivation in Human Immortal realm. They were able to determine Jiang Chen’s terrifying talent just by looking at the power of the lightning tribulation. They were sure that he wouldn’t be just like any mediocre Immortal who had just arrived in the new world.
At the moment, Jiang Chen was undergoing a unique kind of advancement under the lightning. Both his Heavenly Saint Sword and Ancestral Dragon Pagoda were being enhanced, particularly the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda which could devour massive amount of lightning and convert it into its own energy. It seemed like the Twelfth Level of the pagoda would be fully condensed the moment the tribulation ended.
Also, with the help of the tribulation, his cultivation was soaring unceasingly. The dragon marks in his body were condensing madly.
From 160 000, 170 000, 180 000, 190 000 until 200 000 dragon marks!
It lasted for 20 minutes and the total number of dragon marks in his body had reached the 200,000, pushing his cultivation to the late-stage Human Immortal. With this kind of power, he could resolve almost any danger that he would encounter.
Meanwhile, Big Yellow’s tribulation had also reached its end. The overcast sky had returned to its usual color. Both of them were standing together, gazing down at the crowd below.
Everyone, including Jiang Zhenhai, Yan Chenyu, Wu Ningzhu, Han Yan, Tyrant, Wu Jiu, Yu Zihan and Nangong Wentian and many more, became tense. They were his family and friends. They looked grim because they knew it was now the time for Jiang Chen and Big Yellow to ascend to the other world.
Jiang Chen wasn’t an irresolute and hesitant man. He wasn’t emotionally affected when he decided to withdraw the Immortal Mark.
Immediately after that, two golden columns of light radiated from above, encompassing Jiang Chen and Big Yellow. They were the passageway that would lead to the Immortal World. Soon, both of their bodies began to fade.
“Dad, forgive your unfilial son. Xiao Yu, Sister Ning, Ah Yan, Tyrant, Ah Nan, I will wait for you in Immortal World. Please help me take good care of Martial Saint Dynasty.”
They vanished completely after leaving his last words. Although they were gone forever, they had left an eternal mark and glory in this land. Jiang Chen’s name would certainly be an unforgettable symbol and history in this world.
After the both of them left, instead of having some small talk, all of them went back into seclusion. They had already set their next goal, to advance to the Immortal realm. They had to admit that their lives were going to be boring without Jiang Chen by their side. They loved to be with someone as passionate as Jiang Chen and have that adrenaline rush feeling once in a while. They had decided to follow Jiang Chen’s footsteps and be by his side, helping him create another world of their own the moment they arrived in the Immortal World.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow felt as if they had entered some kind of illusory tunnel. They let go of themselves, allowing the unseen force to push them upwards.
“I wonder how the Immortal World looks like. I’m getting really excited.” Jiang Chen’s eyes shone.
Since they had entered the passageway, he noticed that Big Yellow was in some sort of deep contemplation.
“Big Yellow, what’s bothering you?”
Jiang Chen patted Big Yellow’s head.
“Nothing. I have recovered some of my old memories regarding the Immortal World. Would you like to hear something about it?”
Big Yellow smirked.
“You know some things about the Immortal World?”
Jiang Chen was stunned. Although Big Yellow possessed the complete Divine Beast Bloodline, he had never been to such a place. So how was it possible that he knew something related to it? Does he really have the primordial memory of the Immortal World?
However, Jiang Chen didn’t ask about that. He wanted to hear what kind of things existed in Big Yellow’s memory. After being reincarnated in Saint Origin World, he was like an all-powerful person who had everything under his control, but in the Immortal World, it was totally a new place to him.
“The vast Immortal World is too big for one to imagine, and Human Immortal is the lowest realm in this world. So, being a Human Immortal is no big deal in the Immortal World,” said Big Yellow solemnly.
Jiang Chen’s expression changed after listening to Big Yellow. He had never thought that Human Immortals, who were godlike figures in Saint Origin World, was the most ordinary being in the Immortal World. This would certainly deal a mental blow to any expert who had just ascended to the Immortal World.
“There are many realms after Human Immortal realm such as Earth Immortal, Heaven Immortal, Divine Immortal, Golden Immortal realm, etc. We are reaching the end of the passageway. I will explain more when we are inside of the Immortal World,” said Big Yellow, but the passageway shook violently all of a sudden. Then, they started to see light at the end of the tunnel.
But at this moment, Jiang Chen felt an extremely dangerous Qi from the bottom of his heart before he saw a white-coloured light fell on him from the top all of a sudden, like a sharp and indestructible blade cutting through the passageway. It seemed like its target Jiang Chen alone.
“Something’s wrong, Big Yellow, get away!”
Jiang Chen was startled. Even with his late-stage Human Immoral strength, he felt as powerless as an ant while confronting this light.
Because they were travelling in the same passageway, Big Yellow would be affected if he really was attacked. Immediately, Jiang Chen stretched out his arm to separate the passageway into two by force. In the blink of an eye, Big Yellow disappeared.
“Dammit! What the hell is going on?” Big Yellow cursed.
He had lost sight of Jiang Chen after being separated from the passageway. It was a pity that he couldn’t help even though he knew that Jiang Chen was currently facing an unprecedented danger.
Jiang Chen on the other side was locked down by the ray of light, not giving him the chance to escape.
“Son of a b*tch! Who’s trying to kill me? Could there be an enemy of mine even before I arrive in the Immortal World?”
Jiang Chen swore angrily. Clearly, someone was trying to take his life while he was ascending to the Immortal World. Without much thought, he summoned the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda to wrap his body.
The so-called unbreakable Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was broken the moment the ray of light landed on it. Then, it continued, hitting onto Jiang Chen’s body.
He spurted out a mouthful of blood. The damage of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda and the attack of the ray of light had dealt an unimaginable damage on his body.
He felt as if his soul was going to break as well, and he could die at any second. However, instead of killing him, the ray of light branded a mark in his innermost soul.
“This is a Soul Imprint. It seems like someone wasn’t trying to kill me, but only wanted to injure me badly. However, he can locate me any time with this thing inside my soul. In other words, someone will notice my presence the moment I arrive the Immortal World. Who is that someone?”
It took him a few moments to figure the motive behind the attack.
