Corpse Sacrificial Altar
“What else do you have? So, the Star Hegemonic Physique is just this strong.”
Jiang Chen gazed at Desolate Yuan and said in a flat tone.
‘The Star Hegemonic Physique is just this strong?’ Listening to this remark, Desolate Yuan had an impulse to spurt blood. Since the day he was born, he had been the shining star, the supreme genius and the object of indulgence of the higher echelons, a figure that was worshipped by the young generation and the idol of countless people. No one had ever humiliated him with such words.
“Jiang Chen, don’t be all-over yourself. I, Desolate Yuan will never lose, at least not to you.”
His hair had already been dyed blue by the star energy. For the first time in his life, he felt this angry. He had never wanted to kill a person so badly.
He moved again. He spread out his arms. In between his arms was a blue star energy, which was at least three times stronger. In the sparkle of the light, a blue starry spear materialized. It was condensed by the Star Hegemonic Physique, but it looked no different than a real combat weapon.
“Jiang Chen, I will let you taste my spear!”
Desolate Yuan growled, carrying a ten foot long starry spear. He lunged at Jiang Chen. This starry spear had an incomparably terrifying power to kill. It was the strongest technique of Star Hegemonic Physique which was even more powerful than the Meteor Rain just now. This attack was powerful enough to impale a Second Grade Great Saint to death.
Jiang Chen was fearless. Immediately, he took out the Heavenly Saint Sword, creating a pleasant whistling of the sword, before it turned into a shadow of a blood-red dragon and lunged at the starry spear of Desolate Yuan. The Heavenly Saint Sword had already been fused with five fragments. A simple swing could already send a truly powerful strike of the Heavenly Saint Sword, which was also the most powerful technique of Jiang Chen. Thus, this metal had no problem handling the starry spear of Desolate Yuan.
The sword and spear collided, and once again, an unparalleled energy erupted. This was an extreme collision. There was no doubt that Desolate Yuan’s starry spear was really powerful. It sent Jiang Chen roughly a dozen steps away, but his situation was even worse than Jiang Chen. His starry spear was broken, and he spurted out a mouthful of blood after the impact.
“Jiang Chen, I will kill you.”
Desolate Yuan wiped the blood at the corner of his mouth and disappeared in a flash, after leaving a line of vengeful words. He was a very smart person, either that or he might have other trump card, but after two rounds of battle with Jiang Chen, he understood that it was impossible for him to kill Jiang Chen in this place. If he continued to fight, he might end up dead. Thus, he made up his mind to give up the battle temporarily until he got something from the ancient battlefield that could improve his current strength.
“Why did you let him go?”
Big Yellow came to Jiang Chen and grumbled. Someone like Desolate Yuan would definitely bring numerous troubles to them if he was allowed to flee.
“Though I prevail over him in the battle, he didn’t suffer any substantial harm. Given his ability, I won’t be able to stop him if he is determined to flee. He is a very clever person. He immediately withdrew himself from the fight when he saw that there was no chance of him killing me. If he was like Shi Han and continued to get entangled with me, his psychological defense would certainly be broken by me, and I will consume all of his combat strength and then find an opening to eliminate him. However, he chose to flee, so there’s nothing that I can do about it.”
Jiang Chen shook his head. It seemed like he had to wait for another time to get rid of this Star Hegemonic Physique cultivator.
“If I attacked, I could have stopped him.”
Big Yellow felt a little regretful, or perhaps the correct word would be remorseful, but they couldn’t deny the fact that Desolate Yuan was really smart. He was watching the battle expectantly, but who knew that this guy would suddenly stop fighting and escape?
“It doesn’t matter anyway. He is just a defeated opponent. I have the same confidence of handling him in the next encounter. Now, let’s look for the blood talisman. As long as we can find the blood talisman, I would be able to kill him instantly in the next fight.”
Jiang Chen kept his dragon sword and returned to his human form. He and Big Yellow continued their search for the blood talisman. In the previous battle, Desolate Yuan couldn’t kill him, it was also not easy for him to kill Desolate Yuan. He now had the same intention as Desolate Yuan, which was to find great treasures in the spatial zones to improve their current strength before their next fight. If Jiang Chen could advance to the Ninth Grade Minor Saint, it would be a piece of cake to kill Desolate Yuan.
As a matter of fact, if Jiang Chen released the earth devil beast and the devil, he wouldn’t have any problem stopping Desolate Yuan, but he didn’t want to rely on external strength. He wanted to kill Desolate Yuan himself.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow turned into two beams of light and went through different spatial zones like ghostly figures. Jiang Chen ignored all the evil souls and treasures. He only focused his attention in looking for the blood talisman. Unknowingly, they had already been flying in the spatial zones for a few hours now.
Suddenly, the blood talisman that had been silent in his Qi Sea vibrated and gave out a buzzing sound. Jiang Chen stopped instantaneously. He beckoned, and the blood talisman flew out of his Qi Sea and floated in front of him.
“There is a response. The blood talisman must be here.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. He finally found it. As long as it was the same blood talisman that he saw that year, he would be able completely refine it. After that, he would directly advance to the Ninth Grade Minor Saint without a single problem.
The blood talisman rippled around Jiang Chen and then, it pointed to a certain direction and flew towards it rapidly. Jiang Chen was ecstatic. He immediately followed the blood talisman. Clearly, the direction would lead them to the other blood talisman. Something like this would only happen if two blood talismans sensed each other.
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow didn’t speak, but followed the blood talisman. They flew for a few hundred miles and reached the center of the spatial zone. The both of them opened their mouths in surprised when they saw the scene.
In front of them was roughly a ten meter high altar. Generally, it wouldn’t be surprising to see an altar, but this altar was no ordinary altar. It was built entirely out of corpses. At least a few hundred corpses were stacked like a small hill. What’s more surprising was that the lowest grade cultivators among them was an Eighth Grade Minor Saint and there were cultivators of Seventh Grade and Eighth Grade Great Saints in the pile of bodies. That was too scary to see, so many corpses piled into an altar.
Above the altar was a blood talisman drifting around. It was no doubt that this was the blood talisman of Inferno Hell that Jiang Chen saw last time.
