The Chaos in Eastern Profound Domain
Yang Junlong secretly opened the passageway leading to the Immortal World, and sent Jiang Chen and Big Yellow away without drawing attention.
As soon as the two entered Ethereal Immortal Domain, they immediately smelled a thick scent of killings and exchanged a glance. It seemed Ethereal Immortal Domain hadn’t been peaceful within this period of time.
“The scent of war and killings are coming from Eastern Profound Domain,” said Dragon Shisan.
“That’s right. We are currently at the border of Eastern Profound Domain. It seems something has happened in the domain.”
Jiang Chen nodded. Considering that they had exterminated Great Cloud Empire and Heavenly Jade Dynasty before they left, there shouldn’t be a war happening in the domain because it was no longer possible to find any major power that could compete with Great Qian Empire.
Without further ado, the two sped towards the palace of Great Qian Empire.
As for Big Yellow, he was still in the midst of fusing with his Sovereign body. As this would take a lot of time, Jiang Chen had placed him in the spatial zone of the thirty-third level, which could greatly shorten the time. To Big Yellow, time was incomparably important.
Aside from the saddening parting company with Zuo Ling Er, the trip in Desolate Ancient Land was considered fruitful – Big Yellow had been taken away from the hands of the barbarians and Jiang Chen had benefited tremendously from absorbing the barbarians’ blood and qi essence, not only had his cultivation base reached the true Immortal Venerable realm, but also the formation of the fifty-ninth level of his pagoda was almost completed, moving him infinitely closer to his next target, the sixty-sixth level.
The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was a supreme treasure that often filled Jiang Chen with anticipation as it could always bring him surprises. Therefore, he greatly looked forward to unlocking the sixty-sixth level.
The palace of Great Qian Empire.
The higher-ups including Yan Chenyu moved forward to welcome the return of Jiang Chen, who was surprised to discover that Yan Chenyu’s cultivation base had improved once more in this short period of time, reaching the half-step Sovereign realm.
“Xiao Yu, you have made some progress,” smiled Jiang Chen.
“Brother Chen, have you found Big Yellow?”
She felt relieved to see that Jiang Chen was intact, but she was more eager to know about the whereabouts of Big Yellow.
“En, I have found him. He’s currently in seclusion inside the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. We’d better not disturb him for the time being,” replied Jiang Chen.
Yan Chenyu showed a look of excitement which was rare for a cold and unparalleled beauty like her. After all, it was worth to feel thrilled about the news of Big Yellow.
“Brother Jiang, today, we have completely conquered Great Cloud Empire and Heavenly Jade Dynasty. There are no longer three empires in Eastern Profound Domain, but only the Great Qian Empire.”
Yang Yu spoke with delight. He deeply knew that it was through Jiang Chen that Great Qian Empire could grow to this extent.
“I’m glad to hear that,” said Jiang Chen with a smile.
Having someone like Yang Junlong as support, Great Qian Empire would never fall. He had no doubt about this.
“By the way, Eastern Profound Domain doesn’t seem to be peaceful. I can sense the qi of war everywhere. What’s going on?” asked Jiang Chen.
“Brother Chen, earth-shattering incidents have indeed happened in Eastern Profound Domain because of the return of one man,” answered Yan Chenyu.
The name was blurted out from Jiang Chen’s mouth. He should have thought of him at the beginning because apart from Nanbei Chao, no one else would be able to throw the entire domain into endless turmoil.
“That’s correct. That bastard has also advanced to half-step Sovereign. He went straight for the other major powers after he returned,” said Yan Chenyu.
Subsequently, Yang Yu told everything that had happened in the domain to Jiang Chen.
It turned out that Nanbei Chao had returned two days after Jiang Chen left. With the cultivation base of half-step Sovereign, he was virtually invincible in Eastern Profound Domain. Even a First Grade Great Sovereign like Yuan Xiaolei would be easily killed by him.
Right after his return, he led Nanbei Family to attack the other major powers. He had eliminated Zhuge Family, Limitless Immortal Sect and Yellow Spring Sect and conquered half of the domain. Not long ago, the ancient ancestors of those major powers came back from the Immortal Court, attempted to fight Nanbei Chao with their combined effort but all of them were killed by him.
He was an extremely ambitious man, and naturally wouldn’t be satisfied by the annihilation of these few major powers. Based on his personality, he wouldn’t let go of the chance of conquering the entire domain, however Yan Chenyu interfered when he was about to attack Celestial Flower Valley and Exquisite Paradise.
She naturally couldn’t watch Exquisite Paradise and Celestial Flower Valley be annihilated by Nanbei Hao because they were the closest to Great Qian Empire.
Neither victory nor defeat was decided from the battle between Nanbei Chao and Yan Chenyu, so the situation was considered stabilized for now.
To Exquisite Paradise and Celestial Flower Valley, Yan Chenyu was exactly their saviour. They felt fortunate to have befriended Jiang Chen, otherwise, they would have been eradicated by Nanbei Chao and his army.
The current status in Eastern Profound Domain was obvious. The eleven major powers in the domain had been reduced to only four namely, Great Qian Empire, Exquisite Paradise, Celestial Flower Valley, and Nanbei Family.
In fact, Exquisite Paradise and Celestial Flower Valley could only rely on Great Qian Empire now, so fundamentally speaking, there was only Nanbei Family and Great Qian Empire left in the domain.
There were two peerless figures in these two forces. One was Great Sovereign Batian and the other was Empress Nine Yin, who both had been at war since ancient times.
“Nanbei Chao has immense inner strength and boundless potential. Both of us are going to have a fierce battle sooner or later,” said Jiang Chen.
The grudge between him and Nanbei Chao had already been deeply rooted inside them. Nanbei Chao was the opponent he cared about the most. One day, they were going to clash in a life-and-death battle.
“Brother Chen, what are your next plans?” asked Yan Chenyu.
“It’s almost been a month. I’ll depart tomorrow for Fengchi Immortal Domain. I have nothing to worry about with you defending Great Qian Empire and ourallies,” Jiang Chen said.
