The Secret that couldn’t be publicized
Yang Bufan’s face changed slightly. He had never heard Jiang Chen sounding so solemn before. In his heart, Jiang Chen was confident, strong and proud, and could remain composed no matter what he was facing. Even in Evil Abyss, Jiang Chen’s expression had never once changed, but now, Yang Bufan could sense the emotional fluctuation in Jiang Chen’s tone. This showed that the secret in the valley was too horrifying. Yang Bufan needed to be prepared if he really wanted to hear it.
Yang Bufan was almost certain that Jiang Chen would never tell this secret to anyone in the whole Great Qian Empire besides him. This secret must be a great one, and it had stirred up Yang Bufan’s interest. After all, that valley had already existed for very long and was proclaimed by Genius Prefecture as a forbidden place for many years.
“There’s another universe in that valley. A powerful peerless devil, a Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was sealed inside. His cultivation base was already close to the half-step Sovereign realm…”
Jiang Chen spoke everything in the valley. He had nothing to hide. This was the secret of Great Qian Empire. Yang Bufan was entitled to know it.
After listening to what Jiang Chen had said, Yang Bufan’s body still trembled despite the fact that he had been already prepared for this. That was a peerless devil that had the cultivation base that was infinitely close to the half-step Sovereign realm. If this matter was spread out, the whole Great Qian Empire surely wouldn’t be able to stay calm.
“It’s no wonder that all the geniuses who entered there had never returned. Who would be able to fight such a mighty Demon Venerable? If this peerless devil emerges, it will be the end of Great Qian Empire.”
Yang Bufan couldn’t calm his heart. He was intelligent enough to know what that existence represented. The Great Sovereigns of the Immortal World would never show themselves. Each peerless Immortal Venerable was a legendary existence. Naturally, Great Qian Empire was incomparably powerful. Although it was protected by a powerful Immortal Venerable, it absolutely didn’t have an Immortal Venerable that was as powerful as the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape.
“King Fan doesn’t have to worry too much. The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape has been imprisoned in it for three hundred years. As long as no one laid a finger on that natural prison, there’s no way for the devil ape to come out of it.”
Jiang Chen spoke. He understood how shaken Yang Bufan was at the moment.
“That is to say, that Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was imprisoned by Ancestor Yang Junglong. It’s a pity that not even Ancestor Yang Junlong had the means to kill that devil ape. However, I wonder if Ancestor is still alive,” said Yang Bufan.
When he mentioned ancestor Yang Junlong, his face was full of worship and respect. As a descendant of Yang Family, he naturally felt proud of having such a powerful ancestor. Unfortunately, Yang Junlong had been gone for too long. Until now, no one knew if he was still alive.
“Senior Yang Junlong has only disappeared. With his cultivation base, even if he failed to break through to the Sovereign realm, he still wouldn’t die so easily. I believe that Senior Yang Junlong is still alive,” Jiang Chen said.
This was something that he had no doubt of, because the old liar was still alive. One should know that Immortal Venerables had at least ten thousand years of life. He wouldn’t die if there was no accident.
“By the way, brother, you said that you have entered that spatial zone, but how did you come out of it alive?”
Yang Bufan suddenly thought of the key question and asked. One should know that the one that Jiang Chen confronted was the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. Given Jiang Chen’s current cultivation base, he was like an insect before the devil ape. A single breath from the beast could blow him to death. Yang Bufan didn’t believe that Jiang Chen could walk out of the spatial zone without any fortunate encounter. Although Jiang Chen was heaven defying, it was impossible for him to escape from the devil ape’s hands even if he exhausted all of his strength.
“I’ll have to thank the old liar for that,” Jiang Chen said.
He was full of gratitude when he thought about the old liar. He felt that he was truly lucky. Who would have thought that a shabby and filthy old man would be an unparalleled Venerable?
“Old liar.” Yang Bufan was stunned. He had never heard of Jiang Chen talking about any kind of old liar.
“When I first came to Eastern Profound Domain, I have met an old liar outside Futian Manor, and have built a good rapport with him. The reason I could escape from the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape’s mouth was because of him. He had come to rescue us. What exceeded my expectation was that the shabby old man was actually an Immortal Venerable. His name is Venerable Wangqing, Xiao Wangqing, I wonder if King Fan had heard of this name before,” Jiang Chen said with a smile.
He had full respect for the old liar. He hoped that the old liar could find himself again, and enter the Dao with sentiments and break through to the half-step Sovereign realm.
“Venerable Wangqing, Xiao Wangqing, I never thought that that man is still alive. There are plenty of legends about Venerable Wangqing in Ethereal Immortal Domain. I have naturally heard some of them. He was a peerless Venerable and had a great relationship with Ancestor Yang Junlong. I didn’t expect such unparalleled expert to emerge again. You do have great luck Brother.”
Yang Bufan’s tone was full of shock and envy. Jiang Chen’s encounter would indeed make a person envious. A peerless expert was willing to save Jiang Chen’s life. This indicated how heaven defying Jiang Chen’s luck was. Yang Bufan finally understood how Jiang Chen got out of the valley. It was Venerable Wangqing who saved him. It was naturally a fool proof rescue plan.
“That’s true. Senior has already gone away. I don’t know when we will meet again. I hope that by the time we meet again, he has already unshackled the lock in his heart and had broken through to that legendary realm.”
Jiang Chen sighed. From the fact that the old liar had been hiding and wandering for three hundred years, Jiang Chen knew how dejected the old man felt.
“This is a matter of great importance. It can’t be told to anyone. Otherwise, a great upheaval will certainly ensue. The existence of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape is a tremendous threat to our Great Qian Empire.”
Yang Bufan frowned. Although the Great Qian Empire appeared to be prosperous on the surface, the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape was their greatest potential danger. His existence was like a time bomb that might explode at any time, bringing unimaginable disaster to the empire.
“We have to get strong as quickly as possible, strong enough to fight the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape,” Jiang Chen said. His eyes glittered. His heart of powerhouse began to pound.
“It’s easier said than done.”
Yang Bufan smiled bitterly. A peerless Venerable was a very powerful existence. One couldn’t find a second Venerable in the entire Great Qian Empire. Right now, he was merely an Immortal Emperor. That realm was just too far away for him.
“Let’s not aim too high. We just have to be ourselves for the time being. Since that secret space has been hidden for three hundred years, it can still continue to be hidden.” Jiang Chen said. What he wanted to do now was to cultivate hard and improve his strength.
