Fleeing from Death (1)
The devil ape’s stare oppressed Jiang Chen. Jiang Chen only felt better after circulating the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. This devil ape was just too horrifying, however it seemed like the ape was imprisoned here by someone. They had no idea who had such great ability to imprison the ape here.
“Heaven Devouring Devil Ape?”
Jiang Chen whispered to Big Yellow. Big Yellow obviously had more insights than Jiang Chen as he was able to see through the origin of the devil ape with just a glance.
“In ancient times, there were two majestic heaven defying existences in the ape race. One was the Battle Saint Ape while the other was the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. Comparatively speaking, the bloodline of the Battle Saint Ape was more precious and powerful, but such a bloodline was already completely lost through the passage of time. Even the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape had gone extinct. Rumour has it that once such a devil ape reached its full cultivation, it would acquire the ability to devour the Heavens. Although it’s somewhat exaggerated, it also explained the terror of this devil ape. I didn’t expect to meet a Heaven Devouring Devil Ape here.”
Big Yellow whispered back to Jiang Chen, explaining the fundamentals of the situation to Jiang Chen with care. He understood that this devil ape was extremely scary. At this time, Big Yellow started to have some regrets. If he knew that there was such a terrifying being here, he would’ve never come in, because this was basically no different from getting themselves killed.
Jiang Chen took a deep breath, but since they had entered here, it was virtually impossible for them to back away. He still had the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda to rely on. So he wasn’t quite afraid of it, although he does have some worries, because this devil was too terrifying. He couldn’t determine the depths of his opponent, who might probably be a powerful Immortal Venerable. He was worried that the thirty-fifth level pagoda might not be able to resist such a powerful Immortal Venerable.
Jiang Chen lifted his head to look at the devil ape and asked: “Were those living corpses created by you? You have no grudges against them. Why did you kill them?”
“Because that made me happy.”
The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape said casually. The word ‘happy’ gave Jiang Chen no reason to speak further. Jiang Chen could only smile bitterly at such a reason, because it was indeed, a good reason.
“Brat, your body contained three kinds of divine beast bloodline, and this dog is also a mighty divine beast. The Heavens is really helping me. As long as I eat the both of you, I will be able to break through. At that time, this place could definitely no longer contain me. Haha……”
The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape gazed at Jiang Chen and laughed loudly and pleasantly. All these years, he had killed the geniuses who entered this valley, eaten their hearts and sucked all of their Yang Qi, hoping that he could have a breakthrough in his cultivation realm one day and walk out of here. However, those geniuses were just too weak. None of them was powerful enough for him, until today when Jiang Chen and Big Yellow appeared. Their appearance allowed him to see hope again. He was astonished and ecstatic to find that Jiang Chen possessed three types of divine beast bloodline.
Jiang Chen couldn’t help but exclaim in his heart. This devil ape was certainly terrifying. The beast could tell Jiang Chen’s bloodlines with just a glance even though those three bloodlines had already been integrated together. This only showed that the opponent was way too strong.
Apart from the True Dragon Bloodline, Jiang Chen also had the White Tiger and Qilin Bloodline. To put it bluntly, Jiang Chen’s bloodline had fatal attraction to any kind of demonic beast in the Heavens and Earth.
“Three hundred years…it has been three hundred years. I can finally get out of here. Yang Junlong, you have imprisoned me for three hundred years. The moment I leave this damned place, the first thing I will do is to destroy your Great Qian Empire, massacring all the people in the empire. I won’t show mercy even to the dogs and chickens. Hahahaha……”
The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape seemed pretty excited. When he mentioned Yang Junlong, he gritted his teeth. Both of his eyes radiated a tangible fury that was about to burn the void. This only showed to what extent his hatred for Yang Junlong had reached.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow exchanged a glance, then spun and flew out of the palace. They had already uncovered the secret here. If they knew this earlier, they wouldn’t have come in. They expected to gain some benefits in this place. Now, keeping their lives was the top priority.
There was no hesitation. As to who was that Yang Junlong and what grudges existed between him and this Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was, and why was the devil ape imprisoned here, it was of no concern to them any longer. Fleeing was the urgent matter now.
Since the palace was formed entirely out of energy, the formation here was specially deployed to contain the devil ape. So if Jiang Chen and Big Yellow wanted to leave, these energy and formation might not be able to stop them.
“Haha! Thinking of leaving after just coming here?”
The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape laughed. In his eyes, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow’s action made them look like clowns. Before him, the two of them were as vulnerable as ants. A single blow from him could crush them to death.
With a casual wave of the devil ape, a ray of black light drifted out. Then, the whole palace vanished, turning into a stretch of black mountains. The two of them flew across the mountains with great speed, but no matter how far they flew, they could never fly out of here.
“Not good. This place is controlled by some sort of secret art. We are no match for that damned ape. No matter what we do, we’ll still end up in the same place.” Big Yellow’s tone was extremely serious.
“Never thought that we will encounter such a powerful figure. It’s really unlucky.” Jiang Chen, too, was speechless.
Although the devil ape was restricted, he was still the absolute master of this spatial zone. Everything here was under his control.
Gloominess settled over Jiang Chen. Exploring such a secret didn’t benefit him at all.
“You two insects want to escape from my grip? How delusional!”
The devil ape reappeared, sitting on the floating throne with a relaxed look. Looking at the ape’s expression, it seemed he wanted to toy with his preys first. In his eyes, Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were no doubt his toys.
“What do you want?” Jiang Chen asked.
He was already prepared to use the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. He had no idea if the pagoda could defend against the mighty Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, but there was one thing he was clear of: without the pagoda, he and Big Yellow would really die for sure. Even if they exhausted all their techniques, they wouldn’t be able to leave this spatial zone.
“What do I want? I naturally want to devour you two.” The devil ape spoke with great ease.
