*Bang…* *Bang…* *Bang…*
Sparks splashed in all directions. Countless Qi waves rolled incessantly. The void seemed like burning. This was merely a battle of pure physique, the most primitive collision. Not even an ordinary Immortal Emperor would have such powerful physique. If an outsider saw this battle, no one knew how shocked that person would be.
A living corpse that was refined and controlled by some kind of force and its previous cultivation base was a terrifying late Immortal King realm, whereas Jiang Chen was merely a half-step Immortal King. It was a miracle that he, too, possessed such heaven defying physique. Abnormal was no longer sufficient to describe him. He was peerlessly monstrous.
Big Yellow who was looking from one side had his blood boiling. He had a hard time resisting the urge to rush into the battlefield.
“For Heaven’s Sake! What’s actually hidden in this place? What kind of power created such heaven defying living corpses? Too bad, I, Master Dog, isn’t at my heyday. Or else, everything here will be under my control. Ai!”
Big Yellow sighed, seeming to have recalled his past. There was a trace of sadness in his eyes, but it only flashed by and was concealed in the next few milliseconds. After following Jiang Chen for so long, he seldom showed a sad emotion. He had a secret of his own which he had never spoken about.
It was a painful thing to have a secret that couldn’t be told to someone. There were lots of things that he needed to bear. Big Yellow had never told his secret to anyone. Not even Jiang Chen knew about it.
Jiang Chen hadn’t been in such an intoxicating battle for a long time. It could be said that he was having a good time. The battle had lasted until morning. When the light appeared in the valley, the eight living corpses vanished all of a sudden without a trace, it was like they had never been here.
Consequently, Jiang Chen punched the void, creating a big hole in the air. Only then did he realise that all the living corpses were gone.
This gave him the impulse to cough up blood. He was in the middle of an intense battle and had lost track of time. Such a condition was very rare. It would be somewhat difficult to get the feeling back, as he needed to wait a whole day. Nevertheless, he understood that those living corpses couldn’t see the light. Once they were exposed to the light, their combat strength would reduce dramatically.
Jiang Chen looked at Big Yellow. “Did you see where those living corpses disappear?”
Jiang Chen was deeply immersed in the battle so he’s totally clueless and unconcerned about the disappearance of the living corpses.
Big Yellow shook his head, because he was also fascinated by the battle and had also lost track of time. More importantly, Big Yellow didn’t expect that the living corpses would vanish all of a sudden, because they hadn’t vanished on their own, before. The previous two were beaten to death by Jiang Chen.
“They will still show up tonight,” Jiang Chen said.
He began to long for the living corpses to emerge. It would be better if they remain visible the whole time. Last night’s battle had been very beneficial to him.
“I see that you are enjoying yourself very much. Have you gotten any benefits?”
Big Yellow asked curiously and licked his mouth, looking deeply envious of last night’s battle.
“That’s right. It’s true that it had benefited me greatly. My physique has become more condensed and some of my potential has been ignited which helped me condense 100 dragon marks. But this is only the beginning, because the amount of potential in my body is unknown. If they didn’t vanish all of a sudden, I would have obtained an even greater benefit.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes sparkled. To him, such a benefit was the greatest and the most solid. He really hoped that this type of battle would never stop as he would never get tired of it.
“You brat always get a lucky encounter wherever you go. That’s making people envious.”
Big Yellow curled his lips, feeling speechless about Jiang Chen’s terrifying luck.
“It seems like this trip is finally worth it. Putting aside the secrets here, those living corpses alone really made this trip very valuable. It isn’t easy for me to find this kind of body refinement. I will use those late Immortal King corpses to refine my physique first. If there’s a half-step Immortal Emperor in the future, I can use it to refine my dragon physique. If I’m lucky enough, my cultivation base would be stabilized at the peak of half-step Immortal King realm,” Jiang Chen said.
The battle against the living corpses was a productive process for Jiang Chen. Additionally, he believed that the power behind all of these would emerge sooner or later. At that time, the secret would unveil on its own.
The night fell once more. Jiang Chen had grown somewhat impatient. He had been waiting for the whole day for the the living corpses to appear. Only Jiang Chen could behave in such a way. If it was another person, that person would have already found a place to hide.
Sure enough, along with the chilly wind, the eight living corpses reappeared. They were still the eight corpses in the previous night. After they appeared, they launched their attacks on Jiang Chen without hesitation.
“Finally, they came.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes glittered and he instantly became excited. He had waited for a day just for this moment. He didn’t consider how these living corpses emerged. It was no longer important to him. The battle was the only important thing for him now. His body refinement was going to start again.
The same situation continued for the next few days. Every day there was no peace in the valley. No doubt, the eight living corpses appeared every time. They were very punctual at appearing every night, thus Jiang Chen had fought them for seven days in a row. There was no exception.
In these seven days, Jiang Chen had gotten tremendous benefits. 5000 dragon marks had been condensed in his body and the power of his physique had increased by a large amount.
“You’re addicted, Little Chen.”
Big Yellow saw Jiang Chen’s transformation and felt happy for him. Of course, it was a good thing that Jiang Chen was getting stronger and stronger. The Eastern Profound Domain was after all not comparable to One-Line-Sky. Here, one would find it difficult to move even a step without a powerful strength. Putting aside Eastern Profound Domain, this Great Qian Empire alone had hidden dragons and crouching tigers.
“With my current physical strength, those eight living corpses won’t be enough to satisfy me. Tonight, if they appear again, I will destroy them and let the pagoda absorb the energies left in their bodies. As long as they died, half-step Immortal Emperor living corpses will surely appear. At that time, I will be able to refine my dragon form physique,” Jiang Chen said.
He had put the late Immortal King living corpses out of his concern after seven days of improvement. Next, in order to refine his dragon form physique, he would have to fight half-step Immortal Emperor living corpses, which was the target of Jiang Chen, currently. He began to be filled with anticipation.
