Those who see the Futu’s Token, means that one is meeting Futu*
“This insect-wave… it looks like it’s controlled by the flute, ever-changing. This wave is certainly controlled by someone.” Yu Jingfan said quietly as he squinted his eyes.
Truthfully, they felt extremely shocked even while inside the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation. Could this Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation withstand the insect-swarm? Plus, that giant insect sword looked pretty threatening, it could probably kill us all.
Yu Huafan felt a chill down his spine. He imagined the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation shattering into pieces as the giant sword made by those insects swarm onto them.
“Lad, are you confident?” Yu Huafan asked again.
“You can go out and try if you do not believe me.”
Jiang Chen smiled and shrugged. It’s not like I forced you to stay inside the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation.
Yu Huafan was silenced, he would undoubtedly walk to his death if he chose to walk out and fight against the insect-swarm.
The azure-robed girl walked across the sky, playing the tunes on her flute, commanding the endless amount of insects.
All of a sudden, a dark figure stood in front of the azure-robed girl, holding a dark fire-shaped token. The token felt demonic as if it had a terrifying devouring power as if it wanted to take the darkness to do its bidding.
“Those who see the Futu’s Token means that one is meeting Futu,” the dark figure said indifferently.
The azure-robed girl nodded slightly as she once again played the bamboo flute, her empty eyes were calm as a silent lake, as if she was cut off from the world.
The rushed voice resounded through the air, the giant insect-sword dropped at this moment and crashed upon Jiang Chen’s Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation.
Jiang Chen’s pupil contracted but his expression remained unchanged. He single-handedly withstood this attack. The Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation shook as if it was on the verge of collapse.
Jiang Chen fortified the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation with all his might. Without the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, he had to rely on his own strength. If the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation was to be broken, then all of them may as well be torn apart by those insects.
Jiang Chen was forced to use every ounce of his strength. They will have to scatter if the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation were to break and their survival rate at that time would certainly be extremely low.
Everyone gasped. The Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation was almost shattered from the clash.
“Holding on?” Xue Liang asked.
“Yes.” Jiang Chen smiled.
Xue Liang slightly nodded. From his point of view, as long as Jiang Chen promised something, it will certainly be done.
“Little brother, don’t force yourself if you’re unable to continue. Our situation is dire, we may have a chance if we scatter and fight with our lives.” Yu Jingfan said in a serious tone.
He was the strongest and his words held the most weight currently. Even Yu Erniang started to look at Jiang Chen.
“Let’s see how many times they can try.”
Jiang Chen gathered his energy and fortified the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation with his immense divine energy. His divine energy could be easily replenished by the wood spirit. He didn’t know how powerful the opponent was, hence, he needed to use everything he had.
“Not bad. Let the storm be much fiercer!” The dark figure glanced at the girl.
The latter was silent but powerful sound waves once again resounded.
The insects on the sky once again gathered the corpses of animals that were piling up here and there. These insects kept attacking unceasingly, even though they were dying from the clash.
The giant insect-sword formed once again. This time, it was several times bigger than the last. Yu Jingfan’s expression changed. At this moment, Jiang Chen’s Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation may not last.
“Come. let’s see whether your weapon is sharper or my shield is sturdier.” Jiang Chen’s sharp eyes looked at the sky.
He knew that someone must be controlling all of these insects, however, he didn’t know who it was.
The giant insect-sword came crashing down on the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation once again after the flute resounded. Jiang Chen kept on fortifying the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation but giant cracks could already be seen.
Jiang Chen was forced to tighten the Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation. However, the insects felt endless, they gathered three times and crashed three times. The Five Elemental Trigram Fire Formation was in tatters. Even Jiang Chen was heavily injured.
“Such a powerful melody, it couldn’t possess such strength without the power of one’s soul energy.” Jiang Chen thought as his expression became pale.
“To conquer, one must destroy the general. A bunch of insects is useless no matter how many I kill.” Jiang Chen’s eyes shone brightly.
“Great Soul Derivation Technique!”
Jiang Chen unleashed the Great Soul Derivation Technique and suppressed the voice of the flute with his terrifying soul energy, covering the sound completely.
Jiang Chen’s soul energy was as powerful as that of a Hierarch expert. However, Jiang Chen wasn’t confident in this clash of soul energy because he did not know how powerful the opponent was. Nevertheless, he was forced to do so even if the opponent was stronger than him, but the backlash would surely be immense. However, the same would apply to the opponent! The insect-wave would then be dispersed.
An overwhelming soul energy spread across the whole mountain, the dark-figured figure’s expression changed, backing off a thousand li away from the site. Whereas the girl took Jiang Chen’ soul attack head-on.
The Great Soul Derivation Technique, which could purify the energy of souls, caused the girl’s expression to instantly turn pale as she coughed out blood, her breathing became shallow, her soulless eyes became more life-less. She then fell down towards the mountain from the sky.
Jiang Chen felt that his terrifying soul energy did not completely defeat her, he coughed out a mouthful of blood too but his lips curved into a smile. The boundless insect-swarm dispersed. He couldn’t help but sigh, those insects strived hard to survive in this world, yet he was forced to kill them.
The sound of the flute suddenly stopped. He knew that the opponent must have been gravely injured if he/she wasn’t dead. Looks like he was the winner in this battle.
“Jiang Chen is still Jiang Chen.” The dark figure murmured. A glint of viciousness and murderous intent could be seen from the depths of his eyes.
“Are you alright? Jiang Chen?” Xue Liang asked.
“I’m fine.” Jiang Chen waved his hands and said.
“Jiang Chen? Which Jiang Chen? Are you the Jiang Chen from the Linhe Boundary?”
Yu Erniang squinted her eyes as she looked at Jiang Chen.
