Chapter 19 – You are a disgusting poser.
“Young Master Chen was born with god given talent, he can surely defeat the Mu Rong family.”
“I still can’t figure out what that cunning old fox Mu Rong Zhan is up to, but if there’s someone in their young generation who has reached the Qi Hai level… Chen’er, do you think you could win?”
Jiang Zhen Hai looked at Jiang Chen worriedly. Not only him, the rest of the people in the hall all looked at him. The gap between a 9th level Qi Jing warrior and an Early Qi Hai warrior was not small.
Furthermore, this challenge was not only related to Jiang Chen’s safety, it also involved the Jiang family’s pill shop. They had to take everything into serious consideration.
“Dad, don’t worry. I wouldn’t accept the challenge if I wasn’t confident, so my answer is still the same. If Mu Rong Zhan wants to play with us, then we will accept it and play with him.”
Jiang Chen closed his eyes slightly as he stood with confidence. With his ability, defeating someone at the Early Qi Hai level would not be a problem, even a Mid Qi Hai warrior would not be any threat to him. He wasn’t scared that the Mu Rong family would play some dirty tricks on him. He was afraid they wouldn’t do anything at all because then it wouldn’t be any fun.
“Alright, I will accept their written challenge. We will accept.”
Jiang Zhen Hai’s spirit was bolstered, he had complete faith in his son. He had seen with his own eyes that Jiang Chen killed Jiang Ru Long with a single strike, and yesterday Jiang Chen had destroyed the number one genius from the Mu Rong family… he simply cannot be compared with any other young man.
Not only this, the Jiang family also had to accept this written challenge from Mu Rong Zhan, because if they refused, that meant telling people indirectly they were afraid of the Mu Rong family. They will lose their dignity.
Just as Jiang Chen expected, the news had been spread around everywhere in Fragrant Sky city. Everyone was talking about the written challenge.
“We can witness another good show this time. The Mu Rong family has challenged the Jiang family with a fight between the youngest geniuses from both families, right in the center of Fragrant Sky city.”
“That’s right, I also heard that their bet is their pill shop… the Mu Rong family is going all out on this one!”
“It is very obvious that the Mu Rong family’s target is Jiang Chen. The sudden rise of Jiang Chen has become a great threat to the Mu Rong family, so they are trying to use this opportunity to get rid of him and defeat the Jiang family once and for all. But, what I don’t understand is, that even Mu Rong Hao was not a match for Jiang Chen. Do they have any other geniuses in their young generation who can fight Jiang Chen? Has Mu Rong Zhan gone nuts?”
“That’s impossible, Mu Rong Zhan is a cunning old fox. He won’t go nuts so easily, there must be something behind this… We’ll just have to wait and see.”
Many people were discussing this, all wondering what Mu Rong Zhan was planning to do, because according to the facts known by everyone, there was no one else in the Mu Rong family’s young generation who can fight with Jiang Chen… Mu Rong Zhan must be hiding something.
“Do you think the Jiang family will accept it?”
“Of course they will, with Jiang Chen’s temper he will surely accept it, and they have to accept it now that everyone in the city knows about it. They will become the city’s laughing stock if they refuse.”
“The Jiang family has replied to the written challenge! Jiang Chen accepted it. Now we will have a good show!”
“I knew they would accept it, I am just wondering who the Mu Rong family will send to fight Jiang Chen in 3 days. Do they really have someone ever greater than Mu Rong Hao in their family?”
Everyone in Fragrant Sky city was paying attention to the fight between the two tigers, everyone knew that the situation in Fragrant Sky city will change sooner or later. There will be a loser for sure, and the battle in 3 days will play a major role in deciding their fates.
Three days passed very quickly, and today was the day where lots of stuff would happen in Fragrant Sky city, especially at the square platform in the city’s center.
The crowds had gathered near the center square, everyone was here to spectate the fight.
The people from the Mu Rong family had arrived early, led by Mu Rong Zhan. More than twenty Mu Rong members appeared next to the fighting stage.
Mu Rong Zhan looked refreshed and relaxed, he seemed very confident in this fight. Next to him stood a handsome young man wearing white clothes, Lee Chang Hong.
Many people had their eyes on Lee Chang Hong. They had never seen him before, so they were wondering who that person was.
“Who is that young man? I have never seen him before, but he seems to be qualified to stand next to Mu Rong Zhan.”
“I don’t know, but I am sure he isn’t from the Mu Rong family.”
People were discussing amongst themselves.
“Hmph! Why isn’t the Jiang family here yet, is it because they are too scared?”
Mu Rong Ying said with a cold humph. He was slapped by Jiang Chen right in front of the Jiang family’s main entrance, and he had even insulted him further by making them carry the casket, serving to provoke Mu Rong Zhan even more and almost making him go crazy. Mu Rong Ying had always kept this in mind. Whenever he thought about Jiang Chen, he would become incensed.
“Look, the Jiang family is here.”
“The one wearing a black robe is young master Jiang Chen. This young master was once the most useless trash in Fragrant Sky city, but who could have known he was hiding his true colors all this time…”
“That’s right, look at his imposing appearance and that handsome face. He truly is a talented man.”
The recent matters in Fragrant Sky city were all related to this young master; he had become the man of the moment. No matter where he went, he was certain to become the center of attention.
The people form the Jiang family arrived and stood in front of the Mu Rong family.
“Jiang Zhen Hai, who will represent your family and participate in this fight.”
Mu Rong Zhan smiled coldly.
“It will be my genius son of course.”
Jiang Zhen Hai replied with a cold smile on his face. At the same time, Jiang Chen was looking at Lee Chang Hong. Seeing him stand together with the Mu Rong family, he was able to figure out everything that was happening.
Lee Chang Hong noticed the staring Jiang Chen. He turned his gaze to Jiang Chen, the person who had become the main attraction in Fragrant Sky city recently.
“I wonder who will represent the Mu Rong family. I am afraid that there is no one capable in your family.”
Jiang Zhen Hai said in a ridiculing tone.
Mu Rong Zhan’s expression turned cold. Jiang Zhen Hai’s word were like a knife stabbing into his heart, making him feel dreadful, but at the same time it raised his hatred towards Jiang Chen to a new limit.
“Hmph! This is not something you need to worry about. There is someone who will represent Mu Rong family.”
Mu Rong Zhan said with a cold humph. Instantly after he spoke, Lee Chang Hong jumped onto the fighting stage, sending out the qi of an Early Qi Hai warrior. He looked towards Jiang Chen with a disgusted look on his face, “Jiang Chen, come onto the stage and face your death.”
“Who is this guy? He is not someone from Mu Rong’s family.”
“Where did the Mu Rong family find this young man? He is an Early Qi Hai level warrior, no wonder they were confident enough to invite the Jiang family… But, this isn’t right…”
The crowds were discussing amongst themselves, talking about why a stranger was representing the Mu Rong family in the fight.
“Mu Rong Zhan, he isn’t from your family. He is not qualified to participate in this duel.”
Jiang Zhen Hai’s expression changed dramatically. He thought there was no youngster in the Mu Rong family who had reached the Qi Hai level, but they had invited someone who wasn’t from their family to represent them, and this man had clearly been at the Qi Hai level for some time. His foundation was solid, those who haven’t reached the Qi Hai level just can’t compare. This was too risky.
“Jiang Zhen Hai, you should have read the written challenge carefully. I only mentioned that both our families had to find someone who can represent us in the duel, but I never said that the person has to be from our own families. If you can find another genius who is also at Qi Hai level, I will not be against it.”
Mu Rong Zhan smiled coldly.
“This is too despicable.”
“Too despicable, this is unfair.”
All of the people from the Jiang family were angry, Mu Rong Zhan was too cunning… How could he make an excuse like this?
“I will accept the challenge.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile on his face. People could not tell what he was thinking.
“Dad, there’s no point in arguing, I will accept the challenge. Our family cannot be looked down on.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile on his face, other people had no idea who Lee Chang Hong was, but he knew Now he finally understood what their plan was. His only regret was that he didn’t kill Lee Chang Hong earlier when they first met.
Lee Chang Hong was trying to kill him and take over the Jiang family’s pill shop. Then he would be in control of the alchemist grandmaster while totally destroying the Jiang family.
Jiang Chen’s eyes were cruel, he didn’t care who the enemy was. No matter what their status was, he would show no mercy, even if he was the young lord of the Red City’s Lee family. If someone dared to offend Jiang Chen, there was only one ending.
Jiang Chen jumped up to the fighting stage, landing right in front of Lee Chang Hong.
“I have to make this clear, today’s duel will be a duel of death. Two people step onto the stage, but only one person leaves. And the losing family has to hand over their pill shop to the other family without any hesitation. This was clearly written on the challenge.”
Mu Rong Zhan placed his hand on his beard and said this out loud. He had a happy expression on his face, as if everything was under his control. In fact, he was truly confident because no one knew how strong Lee Chang Hong truly was. He was the Lee family’s young lord, so he possessed a lot of skills. If he wanted to kill Jiang Chen, it would be easier than crushing an ant.
“Mu Rong Zhan, you are just too despicable.”
Jiang Zhen Hai had an angry expression on his face. He was worried about Jiang Chen’s safety, but he couldn’t deny anything Mu Rong Zhan had said. Because it was all written on the challenge letter that they had accepted, he had to follow the conditions on it.
“Mu Rong Zhan is really insidious. He set a trap and lured the Jiang family right into it.”
“That’s right, he shouldn’t be doing this at all… But look at the young master Jiang Chen, he isn’t worried at all… maybe he can defeat him?”
“It’s hard to say. His opponent is an Early Qi Hai level warrior, not a Qi Jing warrior.”
A lot of people pitied Jiang Chen because all of this was a trap setup by the Mu Rong family, and now, the Jiang family couldn’t back down.
“What Mu Rong Zhan said is right. Since I am standing on the stage, there will only be one person alive when the fight ends. I believe someone is ready to meet his doom.”
Jiang Chen said in a mocking manner.
“Haha, what an innocent young man… Killing you will be easier than killing an ant.”
Lee Chang Hong started laughing out loud, he never took Jiang Chen seriously at all.
“You are a disgusting poser. You’re really pissing me off.”
Jiang Chen smiled mockingly, he had never held positive thoughts of Lee Chang Hong.
