All ended tragically
“Argh…” “Argh…” “Argh…”
Wails rose and subsided incessantly. In a matters of a few blinks, the nine half-step Immortal Emperors were all killed by Jiang Chen. All nine of them possessed identity brocade pouches which had all fallen into Jiang Chen’s possession. All their luck had already been absorbed by Jiang Chen, directly increasing his ocean of luck.
The scene seemed too stunning, bloody and cruel. Out of the twelve experts, nine had been killed in just a few blinks. Wang Ye, Dong Fei and the others were dumbstruck. Everyone should know that each of them, whether he was from Corpse Yin Sect, Divine Line Sect or Yellow Spring Sect, was a genius like them. If they entered Genius Prefecture, they would be on par with them. Despite all of that, Jiang Chen had still slaughtered them all as easily as chopping vegetables and melons.
Such a scene made Hei Kui and the other two couldn’t help but exclaim. Every one of them stared at Jiang Chen as though they had seen a ghost. There was no other emotion besides shock.
“How could this bastard be so strong?”
“Dammit! The information from King Ping isn’t accurate at all. He said that it would be effortless for our forces to take down Jiang Chen and Yang Bufan, so different from reality!”
Ling Du and Wang Duo’s expression changed, all of their arrogance and pride had suddenly vanished. At first, it was the emergence of the two unknown evil creatures. Then it was the unimaginable power of Jiang Chen. The nine half-step Immortal Emperors were all killed by Jiang Chen. Now, there were only three of them. It was no longer possible to kill Jiang Chen and Yang Bufan, because they couldn’t even get past the two blood demons.
“Hei Kui, where’s your corpse puppet? Unleash it now. I guess that these two evil creatures are being secretly controlled by Jiang Chen, just like how your sect manipulates corpse puppets. As long as Jiang Chen is killed, these two evil creatures will also die automatically. Unleash your corpse puppet to kill Jiang Chen. This is our last chance.”
Ling Du yelled at Hei Kui. This was their final move. He and Wang Duo knew Hei Kui had a strong corpse puppet that followed Hei Kui’s orders. As long as Jiang Chen was eliminated, these blood demons would also die for sure.
Unfortunately, Ling Du was mistaken. Even if Jiang Chen died, the blood demon kings wouldn’t die. They would lose the restraint of the edifying light, and would revert to their previous selves who kills everyone and everything that was around. Of course, it wouldn’t be an easy task to kill Jiang Chen. Even if Hei Kui summoned his mighty corpse puppet, it wouldn’t be able to pose any threat to Jiang Chen.
Hei Kui gritted his teeth, then waved, sending out a ray of black light. The black light rippled in a circle before turning into a powerful corpse puppet. The corpse puppet seemed very sturdy with a face as stiff as a zombie. The inexhaustible death Qi it exuded gave people a feeling of unparalleled gloom and dread.
As soon as the corpse puppet emerged, it let out blood-curdling howls. Its cultivation base was just as strong as theirs, an early Immortal Emperor. This was the horrifying art of Corpse Yin Sect. They could turn dead people into deadly killing machines.
“Corpse puppet, go and kill him.”
Hei Kui commanded. The puppet howled and then thrust out its sharp gloomily-grey claws at Jiang Chen.
“Humph! An early Immortal Emperor corpse puppet? Still not enough for me.”
Jiang Chen harrumphed coldly, and slashed the flame-coated Heavenly Saint Sword at the corpse puppet.
His sword seemed like a blood-red dragon as it slashed on the corpse puppet. Despite the incredible physique of the corpse puppet, it couldn’t withstand Jiang Chen’s sword. One of its arms was severed on the spot.
Flames spread all over its body, but the corpse puppet couldn’t put it off no matter how hard it shook its body. It roared loudly and agonizingly, as if the flames burning on its body was the most horrifying thing in the Heavens and Earth. As a matter of fact, this kind of flames was the biggest enemy of the corpse puppet. Under the suppression of such natural enemy, the early Immortal Emperor corpse puppet couldn’t even stand a strike in front of Jiang Chen.
“Go and die now.”
Jiang Chen sent out a decisive attack. The incredible dragon sword transformed into a dragon completely. With lighting speed, the long sword went through the body of the corpse puppet with a Pu Chi sound. The three types of supreme flames exploded like a bomb.
A sea of flames was created from the explosion. Lines of cracks appeared in the void. The body of the corpse puppet that had been blown to pieces was incinerated to nothingness in the sea of fire.
This type of corpse puppet was refined using the special technique of Corpse Yin Sect. It was a non-living thing. As timed passed by, all the blood and Qi essence in its body would be gone completely. Therefore, Jiang Chen didn’t have the slightest interest in using the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda to absorb it.
At this moment, Hei Kui seemed to be going crazy. Both of his eyes went wide. He couldn’t believe what he just saw. Apart from shock, he was also overwhelmed with anger and pain. He knew how difficult it was to refine a personal corpse puppet, especially when it was a powerful early Immortal Emperor corpse puppet. The amount of effort he put in was beyond anyone’s imagination. The true combat strength of his corpse puppet wasn’t any weaker than his. Plus, this puppet was his greatest trump card, his biggest pride and honour. Today, it was his first time putting the corpse puppet into action. Who would have thought that it would be destroyed even before it could lay its finger to the enemy?
Furthermore, Hei Kui had to bear not only the grief and anger, but also a certain backlash. Under this kind of backlash, his combat strength was drastically reduced.
The blood demon kings showed no quarters in their attacks. The blood demon king who dealt with Hei Kui had a combat strength stronger than him. Due to the loss of the corpse puppet, Hei Kui lost even more of his combat strength. Immediately, sharp claws hit Hei Kui’s chest, sending him flying away.
Hei Kui suffered a huge blow, spurting out blood halfway and his Qi began to shrink.
“Go!” Hei Kui clamoured.
Ling Du and Wang Duo immediately left their opponents to flee. They were smart people. How could they not perceive the situation of the battle? If they didn’t escape now, they were afraid that they might not be able to leave later.
“Want to flee? I’m afraid it won’t be that simple. Big Yellow, help me stop one of them.”
Jiang Chen’s murderous intent soared up to the sky. Since they had already reached this stage, he wouldn’t give his enemies the chance to escape.
