Chapter 429 - Fury of the King (Part 2)
After forging the third broken piece, the Heavenly Saint Sword's power had increased to a whole other level. Although it was constrained by Jiang Chen's cultivation base and was still classified as a Superior Weapon, it was capable of unleash more than enough power to compare with King Weapons.
With help from the Heavenly Saint Sword, Jiang Chen's speed had once again increased by a lot. He wanted to rush back as soon as possible, so he was using all the skills that could help him increase his speed, including the Dimensional Shift and Nine Phantom Wolves skills. With his current speed, it would only take him another four days to arrive at the Eastern Continent.
Eastern Continent, Mount Origin.
Big Yellow returned and regrouped with Yan Chenyu after two hours.
"Big Yellow, what's the situation like?"
Yan Chenyu asked.
"It's really bad. They've brought everyone from the Yan family to Fragrant Sky City and imprisoned them together with the Jiang men. Also, the men leading this mission is the Seventh Emperor and Tenth Emperor, as well as a few dozen Golden Guards. With our strength, it is absolutely impossible for us to save these people, and even if we somehow did manage to save them, we would have nowhere to run."
Big Yellow's words made sense. With his and Yan Chenyu's strength, not only were they unable to defeat the Seventh and Tenth Emperor, even if they did and then managed to save all those imprisoned, they would have no place to run, and the ones they saved would only serve as burdens.
"They actually sent such a powerful force to handle the Jiang family and Yan family, it looks like their primary target is Chen Gege."
Yan Chenyu was no idiot; she immediately understood the point behind this. If they really wanted to just handle the Jiang family and Yan family, a single Golden Guard was more than enough to slaughter every single person from both families. However, they had sent two emperors to such a remote place. They were obviously aiming at Jiang Chen.
"Oh right, how is my father and father-in-law's conditions?"
Yan Chen Yu asked.
Her question caused Big Yellow to furrow his brows, but he still told her the truth, "I believe they aren't in any life threatening situations, but they aren't in any good situations either. They've been brought to the Martial Saint Dynasty."
It was worth mentioning that Big Yellow's ability to gather information was superb. Within just two hours, he had learned all the details about the current situation, and he did it underneath the nose of two Late Combat Soul warriors without being noticed. Just this ability alone was enough to overwhelm anyone.
Yan Chenyu's expression instantly changed. Jiang Zhenhai and Yan Zhanyun were brought and imprisoned in the Martial Saint Dynasty. It looked like the Martial Saint Dynasty were planning on using them as their last resort.
Yan Chenyu managed to calm down after expressing here worry. A cold light flickered in her eyes, and with a solemn expression she said, "I hope they'll be alright. It looks like we can only wait for Chen Gege to return now."
"Little Yu; how about we do it like this; you just keep hiding here and pay close attention to the situation in the Fragrant Sky City, while I'll start flying to the Southern Continent. If I bump into Jiang Chen along the way, I'll inform him about what's going on here."
Big Yellow said.
"Alright, you be careful."
Yan Chenyu nodded her head. They were facing a critical situation now, and only Jiang Chen's return could turn the whole situation around. With their strength, they were simply unable to make any changes.
Big Yellow then left and started rushing toward the Southern Continent. The situation was considered somewhat stable right now. Before Jiang Chen shows himself, the imprisoned people should be safe.
Big Yellow was flying at an incredible speed. On the other side, Jiang Chen who stood on top of the Heavenly Saint Sword was flying at an even greater speed. He didn't hide his aura, so all the demons who wanted to stop him trembled in fear and lost all courage to try anything.
Two days later!
Jiang Chen was still flying at an incredible speed. Then, he suddenly saw a golden beam flashing in the far distance. The golden beam was flying in the direction of the Southern Continent, and when Jiang Chen saw this golden beam, his eyes immediately lit up.
Jiang Chen was very familiar with Big Yellow, so he was easily able to confirm that it was Big Yellow just from the outline of the figure. He immediately sent forth his Divine Sense.
Big Yellow hadn't noticed Jiang Chen before he received the message, so when he received the message through Jiang Chen's Divine Sense, he immediately changed his course and flew toward Jiang Chen. The man and dog had finally regrouped.
"Buddy, you're finally back!"
Meeting with Jiang Chen again caused Big Yellow to feel very excited, especially when he saw that Jiang Chen had broken through to the Combat Soul realm. He had finally seen hope.
"Big Yellow, what has happened?"
Jiang Chen's face suddenly darkened. He knew Big Yellow well, and if something serious hadn't happened, this dog would never have talked in such a serious tone, and he wouldn't spend any effort to look for Jiang Chen in the Southern Continent.
"Something terrible happened. After you left, the Crown Prince appeared with evil intentions toward Little Yu, and the Imperial Emperor even declared an Imperial Decree that the two of them are to be married…"
Big Yellow went on to tell Jiang Chen everything that had happened while he wasn't around. The Imperial Emperor declaring an Imperial Decree telling Yan Chenyu to marry the Crown Prince, how Wu Jiu tore the Imperial Decree with his hands, how Yan Chenyu had castrated the Crown Prince, and eventually how the Imperial Emperor had become extremely furious and declared an Imperial Decree saying that all people related to Jiang Chen, Yan Chenyu and the rest are to be slaughtered.
Right after Big Yellow finished speaking, real flames of fury instantly burst out from Jiang Chen's body, and two visible cold beams shot out from his eyes, causing him to look extremely frightening.
"Slaughter all my friends and family?"
Jiang Chen then said with a fierce voice, "My family and friends; anyone that are related to me… if anything happens to them, I will let the Imperial Emperor taste my fury!"
Jiang Chen had had many enemies in his life. No matter what tricks those enemies used against him, he would still be able to accept them, even if it meant a bloody fight, he would still face it with his head held high. However, Jiang Chen really hated it when someone used his friends or family to threaten him. This had no doubts violated Jiang Chen's reverse dragon scale. Right at the moment Jiang Chen found out about what had happened, the Martial Saint Dynasty's fate had been determined.
"Too many innocent people have been dragged into this incident; we need to rush back as soon as possible. The reason the Imperial Emperor hasn't had them all killed yet is because he wants to lure you out. If you don't show yourself, I'm afraid they might resort to some other extreme measures."
Big Yellow said in a worried manner.
Without hesitating, Jiang Chen immediately increased his speed to his fastest. Big Yellow was also standing on the Heavenly Saint Sword. Jiang Chen's heart was burning with anxiety at this moment. During the past few days, an uneasy feeling had been wandering around in his mind, causing him to feel as if something bad had happened. However, never thought it was something so terrible. All those people were imprisoned because of him, and Jiang Chen would never allow anyone who were related to him face anything bad, much less because of him. Not only that, Jiang Zhenhai was his father, and Jiang Chen couldn't afford to lose him.
"Imperial Emperor, you better pray that no one has been hurt."
Jiang Chen's eyes flickered with coldness. He was like a profound king whose fury had just been ignited - the fury of the king!
With Jiang Chen and Big Yellow's current speed, they would need at least another two days before finally arriving in the Eastern Continent. Within this period, some new development took place in the Eastern Continent.
It had been more than ten days since those people who were related to Jiang Chen was imprisoned. However, the primary target, Jiang Chen had still now shown himself. Even Yan Chenyu and the others had yet to reveal themselves. This situation infuriated the Martial Saint Dynasty, and even caused them to feel ashamed.
And new news came from the Fragrant Sky City yesterday. The Seventh and Tenth Emperor were going to use a new cruel tactic; they would kill one person every day until Jiang Chen showed himself. Today, an important alchemist of the Jiang family was beheaded in front of everyone, and his head was hung high up on the city wall.
Around noon the next day, one more day before Jiang Chen's return, in the sky outside Fragrant Sky City, three Golden Guards surrounded a young man who was wearing the clothing of an ordinary guard. This young man wore a calm expression; showing no fear.
Many people of the Fragrant Sky City had gathered around underneath this group of people and were watching the scene closely. All of them were gnashing their teeth in anger, as they had yesterday witnessed an alchemist of the Jiang family being beheaded without being able to do anything about it. The people of the Fragrant Sky City felt like they owed the Jiang family a great debt of gratitude, and now, having to watch the people of the Jiang family being killed one after the other caused them to feel gloomier and gloomier.
"These butchers will definitely get what they deserve!"
"Damn it! Jiang Cheng has helped me a lot, but now he's going to die! Watching this makes me furious!"
"I just hope young master Jiang Chen can return as soon as possible."
Many people faced this extremely cruel and brutal scene with tears covering their faces.
The man who was surrounded by three Golden Guards was none other than the Jiang family's current housekeeper, Jiang Cheng, who carried a big weight in the Jiang family.
"I heard that you and Jiang Chen have a good relationship. Do you think Jiang Chen will come back and rescue you now?"
A Golden Guard looked at Jiang Cheng with a sneer on his face.
"Cut the bullshit! I'm willing to die for young master without any regrets!"
Jiang Chen spoke in a manly manner. He was once a man who cared about nothing else but saving his own skin. In fact, he was still afraid of death. However, since these people wanted to kill him because of his young master, he had no regrets.
"You can be considered a real man. Since that's the case, I'll send you to hell now."
Another Golden Guard slowly drew out a huge shiny blade and placed it on Jiang Cheng's neck.
"Is there anything you want to say before we kill you?"
The Golden Guard asked.
"Haha! My, Jiang Cheng's death is nothing worth mentioning! Young master, in my next life, I'll still want to serve you! Come, give your grandpa a quick death!"
Jiang Cheng laughed out loudly, showing no signs of being afraid. Faced with the cold blade, he didn't even frown.
The Golden Guard shook his head, then applied force to his hand and prepared to swing the blade. After this strike landed, Jiang Cheng's head would no longer be connected to his neck.
Right at this moment, the sound of an object flying through the air was heard. An ice-cold beam was unleashed from afar and hit the blade.
The blade was instantly knocked away. The three Golden Guards were terrified, and quickly turned to the direction where it came from. What they saw was a young girl who looked like a fairy. Jiang Cheng could also see the person who just saved his life, but not only was he not happy, he felt scared. Without hesitating, he shouted, "Young lady, don't come here, leave quickly!"
The person who showed up was none other than Yan Chenyu. She had been hiding in Mount Origin all this time. After she learned that a new person would be killed in the Fragrant Sky City every day, she couldn't help but come hide close to the city. When she saw that it was Jiang Cheng who was getting killed today, she immediately made up her mind to save him. She knew about the relationship between Jiang Chen and Jiang Cheng; although they had a master and servant relationship, Jiang Cheng had always been loyal to Jiang Chen.
