Fierce Combat in the Valley
No one was surprised by the fact that Jiang Chen could eliminate the two intermediate Immortal King blood demons so easily. After all, they were quite clear about Jiang Chen’s capability. During the time in the outer prefecture, not even the Immortal Emperor Yang Ling was his opponent. And at that time, Jiang Chen was merely a half-step Immortal King.
Nevertheless, they were still astounded by how Jiang Chen absorbed the two blood demons. They hadn’t seen such a technique before. The bodies of the blood demons were 3 meters in height. Even if they were killed or smashed to pieces, their flesh wouldn’t just completely evaporate. Everyone on the scene had great eyesight. They could see that Jiang Chen was using some sort of technique to absorb the flesh of the blood demons. This was what terrified them.
“What a horrifying technique! It can actually absorb the blood and Qi essence of the two blood demons? Who would believe it without witnessing it with his own eyes?”
“I have no idea what kind of cultivation Jiang Chen is practicing. Blood demons are evil creatures. It won’t be good if one try to forcefully absorb them.”
Wang Ye and the others secretly speculated. After all, Jiang Chen’s performance was just very frightening. It was totally beyond their imagination and comprehension. The physique of humans and demons were essentially different. So it wasn’t a simple thing for a human to refine a demonic beast. Whether it was the demon soul or its essence, it could easily cause a backlash. It was totally unthinkable that Jiang Chen was able to absorb it so casually.
“Let’s go. Don’t delay any longer. We only have half an hour. In order to get the Blood Dragon Fruits, we must get rid of all the blood demons here, because any blood demon that is alive is going to defend the Blood Dragon Fruit against us.”
Big Yellow reminded, then turned into a ray of light and rushed into the depths of the valley.
*Roar…* *Roar…* *Roar…*
Meanwhile, roars reverberated in the valley like waves. Judging from the volume and frequency of the roars, they could already sense the massive number of blood demons and its terror. In this valley lived a group of blood demons that was at least hundreds in numbers. Under the circumstance of not knowing the blood demons’ cultivation base, it surely posed a huge threat to Yang Bufan and the others.
Yang Bufan clamoured, unleashing all of his Immortal Emperor Qi, and lunged forward. The others didn’t delay. They had already been mentally prepared before arriving in Golden Horizon. Battle was just a common thing because it would be totally impossible for them to live a month of peaceful life in this place.
“Sister Ning, go into the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.”
Jiang Chen looked at Wu Ningzhu and spoke. “After getting the Blood Dragon Fruit, I will think of ways to help you improve your cultivation base. Until you reach the late Immortal King realm, only then can you participate in battles in Golden Horizon. Otherwise, you will absolutely die in the face of any evil creature.”
Wu Ningzhu nodded and went into the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda without hesitation. She knew very well about what Jiang Chen had said and her own strength. Although she was gifted and had powerful means, her cultivation base was still too weak. Her techniques were too weak in front of the mighty blood demons.
After entering Golden Horizon, she had to listen to Jiang Chen’s wishes unconditionally. To her, it was best that she hid in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. At least, she wouldn’t be a burden for Jiang Chen and the others. There would still be intense fights against those demons after this. Not becoming a burden was the greatest help she could provide to Jiang Chen and King Fan.
The moment Wu Ningzhu went into the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Jiang Chen unleashed his powerful Qi and cast out the dragon transformation. The Heavenly Saint Sword materialized in his hand. He shot forward into the valley like an arrow fired from a bow.
In the depths of the valley was a land, a green oasis. The extremely mystical-looking blood-red ancient tree grew at the centre of the oasis. The tree was a few dozen meters in height. Its trunk was so wide that one couldn’t even embrace a quarter of it with both arms. The branches of this ancient tree had no leaves. There were only nine separate leafless branches, each with a blood-red fruit the size of a fist hanging from it. Those fruits were as red as blood, and seemed incredibly divine. Those nine rays of blood-red light pillar came exactly from these fruits.
Blood Dragon Fruits. That was right. These were Blood Dragon Fruits. The entire valley had blood light lingering around it and was filled with exuberant blood Qi. Any ordinary cultivator that cultivated here would surely become an unparalleled expert someday, because the intensity of blood Qi in this place was just too high. It was exactly a treasured place for cultivation. This could be seen from the power of those blood demons.
The blood demons that were standing in front of the Blood Dragon Fruit Tree emerged in the air one after another. All of them were 3 meters tall, covered in full blood-red scale armor, seemingly incomparably frightening. Over one hundred blood demons had laid siege to the whole valley, trapping Jiang Chen and his comrades within.
The blood demons emanated frenzied killing intent. Each of them gritted their teeth and showed ferociousness in their eyes. These people were undoubtedly their enemies. The Blood Dragon Fruits were going to ripen soon. Anyone who had the intention of plucking the Blood Dragon Fruit would be regarded as mortal enemy by these blood demons. The only way to deal with them was to eradicate all of them.
“Dammit! These blood demons are too strong. The weakest among them is an intermediate Immortal King. They also have a dozen of half-step Immortal Emperors.”
Dong Fei couldn’t help but gulp. For someone who was only a late Immortal King, such a force was just too scary.
“Don’t let your guard down. These bastards’ physiques are incredibly strong, and because their bodies are packed with blood Qi, their combat strength isn’t comparable to any ordinary demonic beast. A late Immortal King blood demon is powerful enough to get rid of an ordinary half-step Immortal Emperor human. So only geniuses of Genius Prefecture like you can be compared to them in terms of cultivation and combat strength. During normal days, you can even fight opponents stronger than you, but in the face of these blood demons, you can never do that. Moreover, I speculate that the blood demon king will emerge. King Fan, you have to pay more attention to it. If the blood demon king appear, there is only you who can deal with it.”
Big Yellow reminded once more. He was utterly clear about the abilities of these blood demons. Evil creatures like them were too difficult to deal with. Anyone who encountered them would surely face his death. Furthermore, these demons could work together seamlessly. The destructive force that could explode from over a hundred blood demons was beyond imagination.
“F***! Such a siege is too terrifying, but these blood demons are only looking at us ferociously. Why haven’t they attacked us?”
Wang Ye asked doubtfully. It could be seen that he was incomparably nervous. As a matter of fact, it would be strange if this scene didn’t give him palpitations.
“They are stalling for time, waiting for the Blood Dragon Fruits to ripen. So we will have strike first.” Jiang Chen said, then slashed at one of the blood demons.
That blood demon was a late Immortal King. Before the blood demon could react, it was slashed in half by Jiang Chen’s sword and died instantly. Both of them were at two different levels. Besides, Jiang Chen was in his dragon-form. Killing a late Immortal King evil creature was just an effortless task for him.
To Yang Bufan and the others, they didn’t have the cultivation base advantage in fighting these blood demons, but to Jiang Chen, the advantage was too great. The blood demons might have exuberant blood Qi, but their nature was evil and their soul had been bewitched by evil which made them particularly afraid of Jiang Chen’s flames, and would certainly be suppressed by it. Under such suppression, even a half-step Immortal Emperor blood demon wouldn’t be able to stand a single slash of Jiang Chen.
The death of one blood demon droved the other blood demons to rage. The group of blood demons sent out a storm of Qi waves. Their murderous intent soared up to the sky before they lunged at Jiang Chen in all directions. The blood demons were ferocious and aggressive by nature. Killing was their favorite. Now that someone was trying to steal their fruits, they naturally wouldn’t be polite to the thief.
Their terrifying claws ripped apart the void with a single swipe. Then, at extreme speed, they formed a seamless encirclement, determined to rip these humans apart.
Yang Bufan commanded and slapped a blood demon that appeared before him. These blood demons could never match the terrifying power of an early Immortal Emperor. Even a half-step Immortal Emperor blood demon would be smashed to pieces by Yang Bufan.
Big Yellow laughed loudly. The top of his head was shining with golden light. He liked such an intense and brutal battle the most. In a blink of an eye, he rushed straight into the encampment of the blood demons. His body didn’t seem as huge as those blood demons, but he still thrust forward like a bull. Those blood demons with low cultivation base were ripped apart by the impact.
Wang Ye and the rest unleashed their combat strength perfectly. They were also terrifying geniuses of Genius Prefecture, the pinnacle figures of the young generation. Each of them possessed some sort of powerful skill. Even in the face of such a force, it still couldn’t draw the fear in them. Each of them was full of combat intent, and an intense battle broke out between them and the blood demons.
Jiang Chen naturally wouldn’t miss this great opportunity. The sky above the battlefield was filled with small openings from the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. All the corpses of the blood demons would be sucked by the pagoda. The blood Qi of these blood demons was just too vigorous which was exactly what the pagoda needed. According to Jiang Chen’s estimation, if he could kill all of these blood demons and absorbed them, the thirty-seventh level of the pagoda would be completely condensed.
