The Untraceable Trace
Watching the half-step Heaven Immortal genius being killed so casually, many disciples had yet to regain their senses. In their point of view, even if Jiang Chen was really powerful, the two of them would need at least a few hundred rounds of intense battle to determine the victor. Who would have thought that one of the expert of Profound Sun Sect would killed in the matter of seconds?
What really surprised them was Jiang Chen’s current appearance and state. The difference between before and after he transformed into his dragon form was too great. He currently looked bloody and brutal, like a true barbaric wild beast. His combat strength had increased by tenfold. Therefore, there was no way that any disciple of Profound Sun Sect a match for him. It was an undeniable fact that he would be instantly killed by Jiang Chen.
“Truly powerful. How could this guy be this terrifying? Have you all find out that his combat strength has increased by many times? It has increased by at least tenfold.”
“Dammit! This is a Forbidden Technique. It’s a rare secret art that can increase one’s combat strength. Not even our sect has this kind of secret art. How did this guy acquire it?”
“It is too scary to kill a half-step Heaven Immortal with the strength of merely an early Earth Immortal realm. When did such a monstrous genius like him appear in One-Line-Sky? And why didn’t any of us know about him before? For an unusual genius like him, despite him only being an early Earth Immortal expert, his name should have already spread all over the region.”
“Don’t worry. Forbidden Art generally requires the caster to pay a high price for it. So anyone who has this secret art won’t use it unless the person has no other choice. Although this brat can kill a hall-step Heaven Immortal expert, he surely isn’t an opponent to Heaven Immortal expert. There is a great difference between an Earth Immortal realm and Heaven Immortal realm. One was the Heaven and the other was the Earth. Regardless of how powerful this brat can be, he will never be a match for Senior Brother Luo. This man has a great potential and must be eliminated quickly.”
The disciples of Profound Sun Sect were shocked, there was no way that they wouldn’t be. Many of them hadn’t put Jiang Chen in their eyes in the very beginning. The way that they looked at Jiang Chen now was filled with a trace of fear. Not even the half-step Heaven Immortal could stand his single blow. If they charged at him right now, they would most likely end up dead. In that case, they had no more reason to look down on Jiang Chen anymore.
“Never thought that there is such a rare genius in One-Line-Sky. Jiang Chen, I have to admit that you are truly a genius of the geniuses. If it was before, I would’ve probably tried all my best to invite you into Profound Sun Sect, but too bad, you have chosen the wrong path.”
Said Luo Xiang. What he said was the truth. When a genius like Jiang Chen appear in this world, all four major powers would’ve fought for him. Having a genius with great future was really important to a sect.
Unfortunately, the relationship between Jiang Chen and the Profound Sun Sect had already deteriorated. There was no more chance of recovering it. Since he was an enemy now, they must destroy him at all cost to prevent him from growing. Otherwise, they would leave behind future troubles and threats.
“I’ll try him out.”
An incomparably cold voice sounded from Luo Xiang’s side. This man was called Wang Ying, an inner sect disciple of the sect. He had the same cultivation as Luo Xiang, early Heaven Immortal realm. This man didn’t like to speak much, but he had high cultivation and special cultivation technique. The energy that was exuded from his body was cold and chilly. Although it wasn’t comparable to Yan Chenyu’s Nine Yin Divine Physique, he must have a very powerful destructive force. He was probably more powerful than Luo Xiang in a real battle.
“Little Chen, can you handle him?”
Han Yan, who was currently in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda right now asked concernedly. After all, Jiang Chen’s opponent was an early Heaven Immortal expert. The gap between them was just too great.
Said Jiang Chen casually. Someone like Wang Ying was no doubt more powerful than Yan Dongliu and Huang Ying. Although he could kill Huang Ying in his dragon form, it didn’t mean that he could kill Wang Ying. Of course, if he used all of the techniques he had, he might be able to kill Wang Ying, but he had just arrived One-Line-Sky and had to keep his trump card a secret. He didn’t want to expose them yet.
However,if the cultivation technique that Wang Ying practiced was of cold attribute, Jiang Chen certainly had the ability to kill him. His flames was the natural enemy of any cold attribute technique.
Compared to an Earth Immortal expert, the greatest advantage that a Heaven Immortal had was the flying ability. However, Wang Ying didn’t maximize this advantage because he thought that it was unnecessary while fighting Jiang Chen.
Wang Ying casted his cultivation law and strode forward. The air around him produced a shrill sound. Layers of white cold fog drifted around him, causing the surrounding temperature to drop all of a sudden.
“Senior Brother Wang’s Cold Frost Technique has already reached such a powerful extent. His Qi alone causes me to shiver involuntarily.”
“That’s right. Although Senior Brother Wang has been a silent and cold person, his cultivation isn’t any weaker than senior brother Lou. In a one-to-one fight, I don’t think that Senior Brother Luo could rival him.”
“Do you all think that this Jiang Chen is an opponent of Senior Brother Wang?”
“You think too much. There is a huge difference between an Earth Immortal and Heaven Immortal. He would never stand a chance against a Heaven Immortal opponent no matter how powerful he is.”
The disciples of Profound Sun Sect was very confident in Wang Ying.
Wang Ying came to the opposite side of Jiang Chen. Because of his incomparably cold Qi, it gave those who were around them a freezing sensation. Without saying a word, ice started to condense between his palms.
The ice grew larger and larger. It was a cold and solid ice with destructive and freezing ability.
“Cold Ice Palm.”
Wang Ying bellowed in a low tone, pushing both of his palms forward. A giant Cold Ice Palm Seal was struck out. This icy palm could almost froze any void that it passed. It had locked on Jiang Chen, eliminating all of his chances to escape. In the blink of an eye, it reached Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen’s expression turned grim. This attack was indeed more powerful than Yan Dongliu’s and Huang Ying’s, especially because his technique was of cold attribute. It had a natural effect of suppressing one’s opponent, which made it incomparable to any ordinary technique.
However, it didn’t concern Jiang Chen. With his dragon form, his combat power was at its peak.
Jiang Chen pointed his finger like a sword, shooting out a fiery light to Wang Ying’s Cold Ice Palm.
It was the Profound Nine Solar Finger!
At this current moment, using the Profound Nine Solar Finger was as easy as moving his finger. With just a casual point of his finger, a Profound Nine Solar Finger was struck out. After hearing a bang sound, a large golden finger covered with steaming flames emerged. The flames was the fusion of True Dragon Fire and true Lightning Fire, it could incinerate everything in the Heaven and Earth. The Cold Ice Palm still seemed very scary, however, there was a huge difference between the cold attribute and the attribute of the Lightning Flame. Even before both of their attacks collided, the Cold Ice Palm was already affected by the heat and began to melt.
The terrifying Profound Nine Solar Finger collided hard with the Cold Ice Palm, creating a temporary dazzle in the sky. The night sky was torn apart, making the scene seem like daytime. The Cold Ice Palm was pulverized by the Profound Nine Solar Finger completely and was turned into steam.
The essence of the Cold Ice Palm laid on the icy cold Qi that originated from a cold attribute cultivation technique, however, such an attack lost its function and became vulnerable of being pulverized after its foundation was incinerated by the Lightning Flame.
Wang Ying couldn’t help but exclaim under this circumstance. Not just him, Luo Xiang who was behind him also widened his eyes. They couldn’t believe this was real. The early Heaven Immortal Wang Ying was widely recognized as a powerful expert, one of the promising inner sect disciple of the sect. But now, he wasn’t even a match for Jiang Chen who seemed excessively powerful.
“Little Chen, don’t delay it anymore. This is the territory of the Profound Sun Sect. It won’t be in our favor if we attracted the true experts here.” Warned Han Yan.
Jiang Chen nodded and drew out the Heavenly Saint Sword. Then, he turned into a light ray, rushing forward. His target wasn’t Wang Ying nor Luo Xiang, but those other outer sect disciples.
He understood the purpose of this trip very much, which was to create a big commotion by killing people, a commotion that could shake the entire One-Line-Sky and let Skycloud Pavilion know about him. So that it would create an advantage for him in the future.
Therefore, it wasn’t important for him to kill Luo Xiang or Wang Ying. What was more important was to kill these people, to send blows to Profound Sun Sect.
Several wails were heard at the same time. In just a few blinks, several outer sect disciples died under Jiang Chen’s sword. Luo Xiang and Wang Ying were shocked until they were woken by the screams.
“Son of a b*tch! Stop!”
Luo Xiang raged and lunged at Jiang Chen. It was no different than letting a tiger into a flock of sheep. To the outer sect disciples of Profound Sun Sect, it was a devastating disaster.
Wang Ying joined him. Their objective was very simple – Jiang Chen. These two Heaven Immortals could move at incomparably quick speed as they could control the air current around. As such, it was very easy for them to besiege Jiang Chen.
However, itwasn’t as simple as they thought. A brilliant fiery wings sprouted out of Jiang Chen’s back. With a flutter of the wings, he moved faster compared to the two Heaven Immortals. Plus, Jiang Chen’s strange movement skill made him an untraceable and unpredictable. None of them could follow his tracks.
“Argh…” “Argh…” “Argh…”
Wails were continued to be heard as Jiang Chen flashed across the area, totally ignoring a direct confrontation with Luo Xiang and Wang Ying. He didn’t stop killing those outer sect disciples who were now fleeing for their lives and shouting like crazy.
They were scared to death. It was too terrifying. They had never seen such a scary figure who looked like a devil king that killed unblinkingly.
Luo Xiang had an impulse to cough up blood while watching his juniors dying tragically one after another in Jiang Chen’s hands. In another few blinks of time, a dozen more were dead. However, they still couldn’t get ahold of Jiang Chen’s tracks, which was a great irony to them.
