The Eye of Heaven
Nanbei Chao was really very strong, which gave Jiang Chen humungous pressure. Given his current cultivation base, he could only escape from Nanbei Chao. Given his situation, he was afraid that it wouldn’t be easy for him to run away. Nanbei Chao was resolute to kill him and would never give him a chance to escape.
The wood spiritual qi and dragon transformation skill was circulated rapidly. His injury was recovering at a rapid speed. Despite using the dragon wings as well as the flaming wings to flee through the space and the Nine Phantom Wolves as distraction, he still couldn’t outrun Nanbei Chao who had used a secret technique.
Nanbei Chao’s cultivation base was at the early Immortal Emperor realm. Given Jiang Chen’s current cultivation base, he could deal with early Immortal Emperor like Ling Du. He could even suppress the likes of Ling Du if he went all out, but when he was faced with an opponent as strong as Nanbei Chao, the scenario was completely different.
“This bastard is only an intermediate Immortal King. But he has such a powerful combat strength and incredible speed. His talent is surely greater than mine. If he’s given time to grow, he will become a great enemy sooner or later. No one could occupy my mind inexplicably. He’s the only one.”
Nanbei Chao was incomparably surprised. The killing intent in his eyes became more and more intense. He was going to kill Jiang Chen no matter what. He could feel the taste of hostility from Jiang Chen. The image of Jiang Chen had appeared several times in his subconscious mind inexplicably. This kind of situation had foreshadowed the significance of Jiang Chen in his life.
“Wisdom King Fist! Crush the space. Jiang Chen, you can’t escape!”
Nanbei Chao’s momentum was tremendous. Every part of the void he passed was shattered. He then struck out the Wisdom King Fist at Jiang Chen’s direction. It was an enormous golden fist that carried the aura of wisdom. The qi it emitted gave people the feeling of suffocation.
This punch had sealed the entire space. The air current in the interior of the void was trembling intensely by the vibration. With a roar, Jiang Chen wheeled and turned into a true blood-red dragon. Immediately, he used the Dragon and Sword Unite and the Eternal Immortal Wind. He tried to escape and resist the Wisdom King Fist of Nanbei Chao at the same time.
The explosion shook the entire void intensely. The Wisdom King Fist had destroyed all the attacks of Jiang Chen. It had also shredded Jiang Chen’s Eternal Immortal Wind. And once again, Jiang Chen was severely injured. A huge piece of his dragon scale was about to fall off. Blood was gushing out violently. It could be said that this was an unprecedented injury he had suffered.
The gap between the two of them was just too wide. Jiang Chen was no match for Nanbei Chao at all. But Jiang Chen felt proud to be able to stay alive under the attack of the Wisdom King Fist. If it was someone else, even if the person was an early Immortal Emperor supreme genius, he was afraid that the person would die for sure. The cultivator’s body would be crushed to powder by that punch.
“Eternal Immortal Wind. You actually know how to use my Eternal Immortal Wind. Dammit! My Eternal Immortal Wind is a supreme skill of mine. How can it be polluted by an insect like you? This is a humiliation to the Eternal Immortal Wind. Jiang Chen, this point alone gave me the reason to kill you ten thousand times over.”
Seeing Jiang Chen using his unique skill – Eternal Immortal Wind— his fury rose to another level. In his eyes, the Eternal Immortal Wind was supreme as him. In the whole Heaven and Earth, no one else was allowed to use the Eternal Immortal Wind besides him, because that was a kind of disrespect to the Eternal Immortal Wind and to himself.
Wasting no time in talking, Jiang Chen fled once more, constantly flying through layers of space, attempting to lose Nanbei Chao’s pursuit. If the situation reached the most critical stage, he could only rely on the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
Losing count on the miles he had travelled, he still couldn’t outrun Nanbei Chao, but Jiang Chen’s condition was getting weaker and weaker. His body began to crack because of the shockwave from the continuous attacks of Nanbei Chao. He had suffered an unprecedented attack from his enemy. If he was replaced by someone else, that person would have died long ago.
“No. It can’t go on like this. I have to rely on the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. Although the dragon transformation skill and wood spiritual qi are terrifying, its healing speed can’t match up with Nanbei Chao’s destructive power. At this rate, it will probably hurt my origin. If that happens, the loss will be even greater.”
Jiang Chen’s facial expression changed. Given the power of Nanbei Chao, it was virtually impossible for him to run away from Nanbei Chao. After Nanbei Chao activated the secret art, Jiang Chen no longer had the advantage in speed. His only way out was the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. And this would be his final trump card.
As for the two blood demon kings in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Jiang Chen didn’t dare let them out. Even the mighty blood demon king Lao Da would be killed by Nanbei Chao’s single punch. It couldn’t even buy him some time. The blood demon kings were still useful in Golden Horizon, and he had tried very hard to subdue them. If they were eradicated by Nanbei Chao just like insects, it would be a great loss to him.
Jiang Chen’s body trembled, tore an opening in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda and vanished into it.
When the escaping Jiang Chen disappeared all of a sudden, Nanbei Chao’s facial expression changed. His sharp eyes fell on the layers of space.
“Humph! No one will be able to escape before me inexplicably. It seems like he’s using some kind of magical treasure. Eternal Immortal Wind.”
Nanbei Chao harrumphed coldly. The Eternal Immortal Wind blew from the inside of his body, completely sealing the vast void. The Eternal Immortal Wind was a unique technique that had integrated itself with Nanbei Chao. Once it was cast out, its power would be greater than any domains, and could seal even the boundary of the space.
“Jiang Chen, you can’t escape from my Eternal Immortal Wind.”
Nanbei Chao’s blond hair fluttered wildly. He was overpowering. Each gale of Eternal Immortal Wind formed a wall of wind, entirely enclosing the place he was in. Mystical talismans rushed out of his body and drifted in the wind like serpents. These talismans could sense any subtle changes everywhere they passed.
Nanbei Chao was a very intelligent person. He could guess Jiang Chen’s means the instant Jiang Chen vanished. He concluded that Jiang Chen had depended on some kind of magical treasure to conceal himself, and that Jiang Chen didn’t escape. Therefore, he had built an eternal boundary, making Jiang Chen like a tortoise in the jar. As long as he found Jiang Chen’s location, it would be the end of Jiang Chen.
Currently, the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda had become a tiny dust particle that had completely merged with the void. Even those talismans couldn’t sense the presence of the pagoda.
A few minutes later, Nanbei Chao couldn’t help but keep the talismans. His facial expression turned slightly unpleasant. The escape of Mo Wuqing had already made his mood bad. If he let the intermediate Immortal King Jiang Chen escape from his hands, today was going to be a huge humiliation to him.
“The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda sure is divine. It’s a peerless treasure that can save lives. Unfortunately, the pagoda is still far from perfection and can’t be used as a weapon. Otherwise, this supreme treasure of the true dragons is going to be exceedingly terrifying.”
Through the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Jiang Chen could see the situation outside clearly, and left out a sigh of relief. Nanbei Chao naturally was very powerful. There was no doubt about it, but it wasn’t powerful enough to discover the trace of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
“It looks like I have to go into the thirty-third level to heal my injuries. This time, I have received an unprecedented injury and need to recover fast. Judging on Nanbei Chao’s looks, he isn’t going to leave for a while.”
Jiang Chen said to himself and went to the thirty-third level in a flash. The temporal rule of 30 times was very beneficial to Jiang Chen’s injuries. The collision with Nanbei Chao earlier had wounded some of his origin. He had to recover as soon as possible. As the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda didn’t move in the void, Nanbei Chao wasn’t able to detect it. Otherwise, Nanbei Chao might be able to sense it.
“Humph! Jiang Chen, you are already trapped in my eternal boundary. You can’t escape from this. I suggest you not to waste any more time. Show yourself!” Nanbei Chao clamoured.
In the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Jiang Chen sneered. Was this a joke? Going out at this time? Unless he was a fool. This was totally impossible. Jiang Chen would never do so as the pagoda was such a safe and comfortable place to be in.
A dozen minutes later, Nanbei Chao still couldn’t find any trace of Jiang Chen. He almost scoured every inch of the space within the eternal boundary, but found nothing unusual as though Jiang Chen had really vanished for good. Such a situation made Nanbei Chao suspect if Jiang Chen had really vanished, but he was still quite confident in his own strength. He absolutely wouldn’t believe that Jiang Chen could escape from him unnoticeably. Besides, the movement of the void was very normal. There wasn’t any big movement. So Nanbei Chao was certain that Jiang Chen was still hiding in here.
“Jiang Chen, you think that you really can escape from my grip? You are thinking too highly of yourself. The Eye of Heaven!”
Nanbei Chao’s qi changed abruptly. He was determined to find Jiang Chen out. He pointed out his forefinger and cast out talismans at his eyes. All of a sudden, his eye expression changed, the colour of his eyes turned blank. Then two indistinct light shot out from his eyes, sweeping across the void back and forth constantly.
“Not good, this bastard actually has such a terrifying trump card. It’s rumoured that the legendary Eye of Heaven can see through everything, whether it is false, true, ancient and contemporary. Although Nanbei Chao’s Eye of Heaven hasn’t reached the peak state, my Ancestral Dragon Pagoda is also only half-way through its cultivation. I’m afraid that it won’t be able to hide from the Eye of Heaven.”
While healing himself in the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, Jiang Chen suddenly felt the divine light of the Eye of Heaven. His facial expression changed dramatically.
