Diao Yong’s Qi had completely locked on Jiang Chen’s. He was determined to kill Jiang Chen this time. In this encounter, he would never leave any room for Jiang Chen to escape.
The reason he had yet to make a move was because the wondrous rock and broken sword were still in Jiang Chen’s hands. Needless to say, the wondrous rock would definitely bring him boundless benefits. As for the broken sword, it was discovered by him first and he had fought hard to kill the two puppets in order to obtain the sword. How could he possibly let someone reap the fruits of his labor?
“I don’t really care about the chance you are talking about, Diao Yong, let me tell you something. You better not offend me. If I were you, I would just step aside and let me leave. I’m also giving you this last chance,” Jiang Chen said plainly.
Now that everyone was looking for the true ancient tomb in the depths of the spatial zone, he didn’t want to waste time with Diao Yong here. After all, killing Diao Yong wouldn’t be easy.
After hearing Jiang Chen’s words, Diao Yong was stunned for a while before bursting out into laughter, like he had just heard the funniest joke in the world. He laughed so hard that tears almost trickled down from his eyes. Although he admitted that Jiang Chen was powerful, Jiang Chen was still far from reaching the level where he could intimidate him.
“Jiang Chen, you sure are arrogant, but you also have to understand that you aren’t even qualified to be arrogant before me. I have already given you the chance, but you still don’t know how to cherish it. In that case, don’t blame me for being impolite. I’m going to kill you myself. The wondrous rock and the broken sword will be mine eventually.”
Diao Yong’s killing intent soared up to the sky. He could already see that Jiang Chen was a troublesome person. It was undoubtedly impossible to force Jiang Chen to hand over the wondrous rock and broken sword with threats. Therefore, he decided to kill Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen sneered and flew out of the palace.
“You are leaving? Jiang Chen, are you treating me as invisible?”
Diao Yong was furious. A wave of Qi burst out from his body to form a curtain of energy which sealed the exit completely.
“Jiang Chen, you can’t escape today. If you kowtow before me now, I will grant you a quick and short death.” Diao Yong said maliciously.
He was in a good mood right now. In his point of view, Jiang Chen had already been cornered. There was no way that he could escape. He always liked the feeling of turning his enemy into his prey.
“It seems like I really don’t have a choice now.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes shone with a cold light. Originally he didn’t want to be entangled with Diao Yong, but this Golden Immortal dude was unwilling to let him go. In that case, he wouldn’t be lenient anymore. At first, he was afraid of Diao Yong, but in reality, he just didn’t want troubles.
At this moment, Diao Yong had succeeded in arousing Jiang Chen’s fury and killing intent. Soon, he would be greeted by a violent storm.
“That’s right. You don’t have a choice. You can only choose to die.”
Diao Yong had a sneer plastered on his face. He then grasped forward with his huge palm. A terrifying energy converged into an invisible mountain, falling onto Jiang Chen.
Jiang Chen’s body twisted and transformed into his dragon form. His eyes turned blood-red. At the same time, the Five Elemental Spheres spread out, enshrouding the whole palace. The commotion of this battle would surely be great and he didn’t want anyone to notice it.
More importantly, Jiang Chen was going to reveal his secret now, a secret that no one should know.
He struck out the True Dragon Palm, colliding with Diao Yong’s attack. A tremendous energy rolled everywhere, but because of the layer of the Five Elemental Spheres, it would be very hard for anyone outside to notice it. What surprised both Jiang Chen and Diao Yong was that the structure of the palace was pretty solid. The building remained intact despite the frenzied shockwave.
*Deng!* *Deng!* *Deng!*
Diao Yong was still stronger. In this impact, Jiang Chen retreated three steps before stabilizing himself. He could feel his blood and Qi turning chaotic and a discomfort that he couldn’t describe, but such shock was nothing to Jiang Chen. He could recover instantly with just a rush of his wood spiritual Qi.
“Jiang Chen, although you have heaven defying powers, you are still no match for me. I suggest you to stop resisting and hand over the wondrous rock and broken sword.” Diao Yong said arrogantly.
“Is that so?”
A cruel smile was plastered at the corner of Jiang Chen’s mouth. He turned his palm and a huge sparkling golden dragon-shaped halberd materialized. This was an incomparably strong combat halberd. The Qi exuded from it was frightening.
Diao Yong’s facial expression changed dramatically, he could already feel the terror of this weapon as there was a strong Qi of Great Luo coming from it. It was a peak level true Great Luo Immortal Weapon , which was very close to King Immortal Weapon. Such a powerful Immortal Weapon was definitely a true treasure.
But immediately, his face darkened once more, he realized that this weapon was just like the combat halberd said in the legend.
“Isn’t this…the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd? The combat halberd left behind by Ouyang He? How could it be in your possession?”
Diao Yong widened his eyes, he couldn’t believe what he just saw. He wouldn’t have thought that Jiang Chen would have such a powerful trump card. The Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd was the weapon of Ouyang He, so it had a great reputation in One-Line-Sky.
“That’s right.” Jiang Chen said flatly.
“That means you were the one who stole the Regenerative Lotus?”
Diao Yong suddenly recalled the Regenerative Lotus on One-Line Mountain, the shock on his face intensified. That day, the case about the theft of the Regenerative Lotus was left unsolved. Not even the One-Line Eight Immortals could figure it out. So in the end, they had forgotten about it, and no one had ever imagined that this legendary weapon would appear once more.
There couldn’t be too many coincidences in the world. Diao Yong was almost sure that Jiang Chen must be related to the theft of the Regenerative Lotus.
“That’s right. I was the one who took the Regenerative Lotus.”
Jiang Chen’s tone was plain. As a matter of fact, Diao Yong’s fate had already been decided the moment Jiang Chen took out the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd.
“Good, very good, Jiang Chen! You have the nerve! How dare you trick even the One-Line Eight Immortals and steal the Regenerative Lotus?! It seems like taking you down is going to earn me a huge credit.”
Diao Yong suddenly felt excited. He was too confident about his own strength. He wasn’t afraid at the sight of the combat halberd anymore. He thought that a puny half-step Divine Immortal wouldn’t have the ability to exert the full power of this Great Luo Immortal Weapon.
