“Catch that Jiang Chen and defend the natural state of Inferno City!”
Right at this moment, numerous shouts were sounding out from within Inferno City. Then, countless strong men dashed out from the middle area of Inferno City.
The last three men were actually getting ready to cut off their arms, but when they saw the huge amount of people coming toward them, they felt like their life-saving straw had appeared. Immediately, they turned and started running. In their minds, with so many warriors swarming here, it would be more than enough to shock Jiang Chen. Facing the threat of so many strong warriors, Jiang Chen wouldn’t have the time to kill them.
But too bad, these three men had overestimated the incoming men.
Swoosh swoosh swoosh!
Just when these three men turned around, three deadly sword strikes descended upon their heads, slashing them all in half.
When the warriors who had just dashed out from the middle area of Inferno City saw what was happening, all of their expressions changed dramatically. They threw their eyes at both Jiang Chen and those dead bodies scattered around the place. They immediately knew what was going on.
“Jiang Chen, who gave you the audacity to violate the natural state of Inferno City? Who let you rob all the men here by force, and kill without mercy?”
One of the Late Divine Core warriors shouted at Jiang Chen.
The situation instantly became tense. There were over 60 men from the middle area here. More than 20 of them were Late Divine Core warriors, and the rest were all Mid Divine Core warriors.
These men represented the top combat strength of Inferno City. At this moment, many people had gathered around. Most of the spectators were those whom Jiang Chen had robbed in the outer perimeter, and some of them had just arrived at Inferno City in the last two and a half months, and didn’t want any trouble. This group of people didn’t want to join the battle; these were the men who would live the longest, they made the right choice by not joining the other people to attack Jiang Chen. Since they didn’t try to challenge Jiang Chen, Jiang Chen wouldn’t touch them either.
“Looks like all of you are the men who have been searching for me in the last two and a half months.”
Jiang Chen’s gaze dashed from left to right on these men’s faces with a sneer on his face. He felt no fear, as these men weren’t qualified of making him feel scared.
As for the seemingly gracious reason where he had ‘disturbed the natural state of Inferno City’, Jiang Chen just considered that bullshit. There were no rules in Inferno Hell except for one, and that who had more strong would be the one to rule. Life was worthless here, and countless men died every day. Jiang Chen just wanted to kill those who tried to attack him.
“Guys, since we’re all here, Jiang Chen can’t just belong to one of us. In my opinion, we should kill him and split all his wealth equally, this will be Jiang Chen’s punishment, and a warning for those who are in Inferno City at the same time. Violating the natural state of Inferno City is unforgivable!”
An old man with a gray beard said. His name was Shangguan Wei, and he had a profound background. He was from the Jian Province’s Shangguan family, and the family was a massive power in the Jiang Province, no weaker than the Myriad Sword Sect. There had rarely been anyone who dared challenge them in the Jian Province.
“Alright, we’ll do as brother Shangguan said. Let’s kill Jiang Chen and split all his belongings, what do you guys think?”
Another man asked.
“Perfect, let’s do this! There are so many of us here, even if this Jiang Chen has three heads and six arms, he will die without any doubts!”
Someone agreed. All the other men nodded their heads as well. With killing intent rocketing to the sky, these men were completely treating Jiang Chen as their prey.
On the opposite side, Wu Jiu was caressing his beard while calmly watching the situation. He didn’t say anything, as he wanted to see how Jiang Chen was going to handle the attack of so many strong warriors.
But Guan Yiyun, Tian Yishan, and a few other men all had awful expressions. Of these 60 men, the weakest warrior was at the Mid Divine Core realm. This ridiculous overall combat strength is nothing that those groups in the outer perimeter could compare with.
“Damn it, this group of bastards are too shameless! Can chief Jiang handle them?”
Wang Heng looked worried.
“Don’t worry, can’t you see the confidence on junior disciple Jiang’s face? He never does anything without certainty of success.”
Guan Yiyun said. He had strong confidence in Jiang Chen.
“That’s right! Don’t forget brother Jiang’s approach back in our stronghold in the outer perimeter, he was only a Late Heavenly Core warrior then, but he has now broken through to the Divine Core realm; none of these men are a match for brother Jiang. They also don’t have any synergy, and that makes them more vulnerable to brother Jiang.”
Tian Yishan said.
Dozens of Divine Core warriors moved, surrounding Jiang Chen in the middle. All of them carried wicked smiles on their faces.
“Initially, I just wanted to take all your belongings and spare your lives, but it looks like I won’t have to do that now.”
Jiang Chen said. The longsword in his hand was making a constant buzzing sound, and the light beam coming out from the tip of the sword caused ripples to appear that could be seen with the naked eye.
“Jiang Chen, don’t be stubborn, just put down your defense. Death awaits you today.”
Shangguan Wei said.
“Is that so? The, you be the one to attack first, let’s see if you really can kill me.”
Jiang Chen gazed at Shangguan Wei. This man had the strongest cultivation amongst all the other men here, and he was comparable to Daoist Black. A man like this should have a high position in the Shangguan family. And yet, Jiang Chen didn’t take him to heart.
“Hmph! What an ignorant young man, let me be the one to kill you!”
A robust man took a step forward. He was carrying a golden spear, and he was releasing all his terrifying Late Divine Core aura. With a wave of his arm, the spear produced a buzzing sound and started piercing toward Jiang Chen.
Too bad, the robust man hadn’t seen the scene where Jiang Chen had killed the Late Divine Core warrior. If he had, he wouldn’t be the first one to attack.
Jiang Chen shook his head, then he waved the Bloodthirsty Sword like a poisonous snake toward the robust man.
The sword moved like a fierce dragon as it collided with the opponent’s spear, producing a lot of sparks. Jiang Chen’s combat strength was simply ferocious, his attack carried a tremendous force, it was like a huge mountain being thrown at his enemy.
The robust man let out a shocking shout. He felt his arm had become completely numb, and he could barely hold the spear. He was also forced back three steps.
The robust man was extremely shocked. The level of Jiang Chen’s mightiness had gone way beyond his imagination. Jiang Chen didn’t give him any chance to react, right as the robust man had been forced back; he turned into a trail of light and instantly arrived in front of the man.
The robust man’s body shook, as if he had just been struck by thunder. He lowered his head and looked at his chest, and he could only see the handle of the sword hanging on his chest. The shadow of death was hovering above his head.
Jiang Chen impaled his heart with the sword, and the razor sharp sword energy had shattered all his internal organs, giving him a tragic death.
Jiang Chen pulled the sword out from the man’s chest, and then he kicked the dead body far away. He had just killed another Late Divine Core warrior with ease, and on his face, there was only a cruel expression.
Everyone exclaimed at the same time. All of them knew very well how strong the robust man was, but he had actually been killed by Jiang Chen with ease. Jiang Chen’s formidable strength had changed their expressions.
“This guy is really strong, let’s attack together!”
Shangguan Wei shouted out loudly. All the other men began taking Jiang Chen more seriously in their minds. Dozens of powerful auras turned into visible energy beams that shot high up into the sky, causing the sky to reflect with colorful lights. All of them drew their combat weapons, then they dashed forwards and unleashed their attacks.
“Haha, since you’re not afraid of death, just show me what you got!”
Jiang Chen’s dark hair was dancing around as he laughed out loudly, causing him to look like a mighty god of war. With a sway of his body, nine identical Jiang Chens suddenly appeared in the center of the battlefield, distracting all his enemies.
“What an amazing movement skill! I never thought I’d see such a peerless genius in the Eastern Continent!”
Wu Jiu’s eyes lit up. He looked at Jiang Chen as if he was looking at a rare treasure.
Jiang Chen was simply too fast, he moved amongst these strong warriors like a dragon swimming through the heavens, and he kept unleashing attacks. No one could take a single strike from him, especially those Mid Divine Core warriors. Jiang Chen killed them like he was chopping vegetables, and dead bodies fell onto the ground everywhere. Big Yellow just stood underneath the battlefield, waiting for the falling dead bodies to hit the ground, so he could leap forwards and take their belongings.
Blood-curdling screeches filled the scene, and it was just like Tian Yishan had said. Although these men were very strong, they didn’t have any synergy. Even though they had now grouped together to attack, they still couldn’t unleash their full strength. Jiang Chen was moving around the battlefield with his amazing movement skill, and these men just couldn’t find the chance to attack him.
“Earth Shattering Palm!”
Shangguan Wei suddenly shouted out loudly, then he unleashed the Shangguan family’s most devastating combat skill toward Jiang Chen.
A great golden palm appeared in front of Jiang Chen, and it carried a devastating aura, as if it could crack anything in its page. However, Jiang Chen had no fear, he immediately countered with his True Dragon Palm. “Dad!”
Mu Yuan’s voice was choked with his emotion as he looked at Mu Zheng’s face that seemed to have aged a couple of decades already with teary eyes. His heart ached as he said, “Your unfilial son has returned…”
“It’s good you’re back. It’s good you’re back.”
Mu Zheng wiped away his tears from the corner of his eyes but said with a shaky voice, “Now, our family has finally reunited…”
‘I’ve waited ages for this day already…’
When Mu Hao Tian saw the couple that appeared right at the front of the group from afar, he couldn’t help but dash toward them, leaping into Yun Luo’s embrace.
“Papa! Mama! Welcome home…”
The word ‘home’ was so warm to them, filling up their hearts with warmth…
“Dad! Mom! It is not only us that returned this time, but people of the Zi family has come as well.”
Mu Zheng was stunned as he clarified, “Is that Zi family you are referring to the Zi family I am thinking of?”
Even though the Mu family was located far from Hua Xia, he had heard about the fame of the Zi family. But he just couldn’t believe why the Zi family would come to this place.
With tears in her eyes, Yun Luo nodded as she said, “Father, the Zi family has come to discuss Yue Er’s marriage.”
“Yue Er’s marriage?” Mu Zheng was completely stunned. But his expression turned serious after he came back to his senses. “Hadn’t Yue Er already have a husband? A girl can’t have two husbands no matter what. Since she had already chosen her partner, we can’t force her…”
“Grandfather,” Mu Ru Yue walked forth and held Mu Zheng’s hand as she revealed, “Wu Chen is a member of the Zi family.”
A bolt of lightning seemed to have struck Mu Zheng’s heart, stunning him. He even suspected that his ears were playing tricks on him as he stared at Mu Ru Yue’s flawless face in disbelief.
“But isn’t his surname Ye? How can he be a member of the Zi family?”
He couldn’t wrap his head around the situation at this moment, looking dazedly at Mu Ru Yue…
“It is a long story. Mother, Father, Grandfather, Hao Tian, let’s head inside the house first. I will then tell you about everything that had happened these few years…”
Mu Zheng nodded in a daze as he subconsciously followed Mu Ru Yue inside…
Following that, Mu Ru Yue told them everything about her transmigration to a different world’s continent, including everything that happened in her past life.
Everyone was mystified as they listened to what she said. Yet, such a fantasy-like story was happening before them…
Now, Yun Luo knew why Yan Ruo Xi believed so much in Mu Ru Yue.
‘So such a thing happened when we weren’t aware of it. But my daughter is so outstanding to be the reincarnation of Senior Yue of the Central Region, an existence where every people in the world yearn and long to be…’
But some matters obviously took a lot of time to digest. Mu Ru Yue left the room after saying everything…
The sunlight from the sky landed on the girl’s flawless face. She took in a deep breath as she said calmly, “Wu Chen, the matters of the Mu family has finally ended. I will be going to find Xiao Bai next. We will then leave Hua Xia to head back to the Eastern Island once Xiao Bai appears…”
‘There are people that I care about there…’
Mu Ru Yue’s expression turned slightly grim. With a trace of a cold ray of light that shone past her eyes, she continued, “We will be going to settle our debts with Bei Jun real soon!”
‘But what I don’t understand is that Bei Jun was the only one that could send souls to Hua Xia. Could it be he spared the Zi family in the end? But how could he had done such a matter with his domineering and ruthless personality?’
A trace of confusion flashed past her heart when she thought about that. A slight sense of helplessness was expressed on her face…
(The translation of this novel is hosted at www.radianttranslations.com.) Gu Xietian’s expression suddenly turned bitter. “He hated me back then, so much so that he refused to use his own family name and changed it to his mother’s surname instead. No matter which name he calls himself, he is still your brother. He is still my son.”
Curiously, Gu Xijiu looked at him with bright eyes. “I am not quite sure about what happened between you and Tiannuo. What made him hate you so much?”
Gu Xietian rubbed his temples. “I was blinded. I mistreated him as a way to make his mother angry. I am sure that his feelings were greatly hurt. He used to be a sensitive child. After his disappearance, I fell into deep remorse for what I did to him. I have been thinking about him all these years, hoping that we could meet again.”
“Catch that Jiang Chen and defend the natural state of Inferno City!”
