Chapter 21 – The Rising Wind Forebodes the Coming Storm
The Six Solar Fingers was an Earth combat skill. Even if it was just the One Solar Finger, its power was frightening. The air burned, and smoke was emerging from the ground accompanied by loud thundering sounds.
The old man currently raging suddenly shouted He could feel a strong sense of danger from deep inside his heart. The speed of the Single Solar Finger was too fast, and he couldn’t avoid it. In this dangerous situation, he could only hope to defend himself with a palm attack.
Under the impact of the One Solar Finger, that palm attack had the fragility of tofu and was destroyed instantly.
The One Solar Finger collided with the old man’s body, and a stream of blood came out of his shoulder – everyone saw that his arm had been torn off.
The old man was screaming in pain, his eyes filled with fear. He was terrified, if he had reacted any slower, and had not turned his body around, that finger attack wouldn’t have just taken his arm – it would have killed him.
“What combat skill is that?!”
“Even the air was vibrating, this combat skill is just too frightening… I’ve never seen anything like this before.”
“What else is Jiang Chen hiding? He is only a ninth level Qi Jing warrior, but he can wound a Middle Qi Hai warrior. This is unbelievable!”
“He is a freak; don’t tell me he was a Saint in his previous life?”
Many people were shocked, their faces pale. This was too frightening. What happened just now was something they had thought to be impossible.
Even Jiang Zhen Hai was shocked. His mouth was wide open. The combat skill Jiang Chen had unleashed just now was not a skill from the Jiang family. Their stronger combat skill was only a Mortal level one, but the one Jiang Chen just used had surpassed the level of a Mortal combat skill.
Jiang Chen’s body was shaking as well. His facial expression was pale, and he was having a difficult time standing. Using a High Earth Combat Skill was just too hard with his current power. It had consumed all of Jiang Chen’s Yuan power, and the Dragon Mark in his Dantian had even started fading.
Last time when he fought Mu Rong Hao, he had only used a fraction of the One Solar Finger’s power, but this time he used its full power.
Jiang Chen grabbed a Mortal Restoration Pill and consumed it, immediately circulating his Dragon Transformation skill to quickly restore his strength.
Jiang Zhen Hai was the only one to react He jumped onto the stage and walked over to Jiang Chen.
“Dad, kill him.”
A cold expression could be seen on Jiang Chen’s face, and his voice was as cold as his expression.
Jiang Zhen Hai looked at the old man who had lost his arm with a cruel and firm look in his eyes. They had offended the Red City’s Lee family, but since Jiang Chen wanted him to do it, he will support him till the very end.
Jiang Zhen Hai let out his High Qi Hai level Qi, and with one step he approached the old man. The old man was wounded seriously and couldn’t move a single step. Jiang Zhen Hai slapped the old man’s head, immediately sending him to meet his maker.
It was dead silent, only the sound of blood dripping could be heard from the stage. The smell of blood provoked everyone’s nerves, frightening the audience.
Finally, the crowds started making noise, all their shock exploding out at once. Everyone could predict that a messy situation was coming to Fragrant Sky city, overwhelming all of Fragrant Sky city’s history.
Too cruel, too brutal, everyone had their gazes on the 15 year old youngster.
Courageous, merciless, he was only 15 years old. If they hadn’t seen it with their own eyes, then no one would have believed it.
His vision, as cold as ice.
His expression, as calm as water.
His mind, as subtle as ocean.
His courage, uncomparable.
He made everyone believe he was a kind person, but once provoked, he would frighten everyone. No one knew how this person could change so quickly, and no one knew that within this youngster’s body there was a thousand year old soul old enough to be their ancestor.
Everyone from the Mu Rong family’s faces had turned pale. They had just comprehended the situation, and they could see that their guests were now lying dead on the ground. They had sent out the written challenge with full confidence, coming to this place with high spirits, but none of them had expected this kind of conclusion.
“Jiang Zhen Hai, Jiang Chen, do you know who you just killed? He is the young lord from Red City’s Lee family.”
Mu Rong Zhan shouted out with a flushed face. He was somewhat happy.Jiang Chen had killed Lee Chang Hong, and the Lee family will definitely not take this defeat lying down. The Jiang family will definitely suffer once the Lee family exacted revenge.
Jiang Chen gazed at Mu Rong Zhan calmly, then he waved his hand and released two Fiery Tiger Flames onto Lee Chang Hong and the old man’s body.
The fire from the Fiery Tiger demon was very powerful; both corpses were instantly covered by a sea of flame.
Now even Mu Rong Zhan couldn’t bear it, he took a deep breath. This young man was too cruel and unpredictable. How could he burn their bodies after killing them? This only served to further offend the Lee Family.
“Very good, young man Jiang Chen, you win. Let’s go.”
Mu Rong Zhan wanted to do a good deed by bringing their bodies back to the Lee family, but he didn’t expect Jiang Chen too be so heartless to even burn their bodies.
Jiang Zhen Hai shouted, “Mu Rong Zhan, how can you leave like this? I doubt you’ve forgotten about our bet. From today onwards, your pill shop will be ours!”
All of the Mu Rong family’s faces ashened, the pill shop was the most important shop for the Mu Rong family. Although their business had been terrible lately, they can’t hand it to someone else. More importantly, this was a matter that involved their reputation.
But, the written challenge was sent by them, and the bet was decided by themselves too. It was impossible for them to deny this claim in front of so many people.
“Don’t worry, I won’t forget about this.”
Mu Rong Zhan let out a cold humph.He led all of his family members and left. Just like the day when they left the Mayor’s mansion, they looked crestfallen.
The Mu Rong family came with a mentality that they would win today, and he had even planned all of the strategies beforehand, but they never thought this would be the result.
On the fighting stage, Jiang Chen ate another Mortal Restoration pill, and with the help of the Dragon Transformation skill, his Yuan power was now fully restored. His current strength was nowhere close enough to use the Six Solar Finger, and even the One Solar Finger consumed all his power.
“Chen’er, are you alright?”
Jiang Zhen Hai expressed his concern.
“I’m alright, dad, let’s go.”
Jiang Chen jumped down from the stage and calmly started walking towards the Mayor’s mansion, the rest of the Jiang family members following him. There were no joyful expressions on their faces, they all looked worried.
They couldn’t stop worrying because today Jiang Chen had killed the young lord from Red City’s Lee family. This news will soon reach Red city and the Lee family will not let things lay easily. If they want revenge, how would the Jiang family defend themselves?
“Young master Jiang Chen is too powerful, he can defeat a Qi Hai warrior while only being a ninth level Qi Jing warrior. He is truly a remarkable genius!”
“Although the Jiang family has won this match, a greater challenge awaits them… I believe it won’t be long until Red City’s Lee family comes here.”
“Ahh! Huge trouble is coming to Fragrant Sky city… I wonder who will be the last one standing.”
The rising wind forebode the coming storm; with one trouble gone, another comes. As the strongest city amongst the 18 cities in this territory, Red City rarely cared about what happened in other cities, but his time they will surely act.
-Mu Rong family!-
“Chief, are we really going to hand over the pill shop? That’s the root of our income!”
“Of course, but it won’t matter. Mu Rong Tian, go to Red City immediately and inform the Lee family that their young lord was killed.”
Mu Rong Zhan looked at an old man.
“Alright, I will leave right now.”
Mu Rong Tian clasped his fist and left immediately.
“Just watch, it won’t be long before the Jiang family will disappear completely from Fragrant Sky city. When that happens, the pill shop will be ours, and the Mu Rong family will be the ones in charge!”
Mu Rong Zhan smiled coldly, this method of killing someone with someone else’s hands was truly brutal.
-On the other side, Jiang family!-
“Mayor, the Lee family will definitely seek revenge, we need to prepare.”
Zhou Bei Zhen said.
Jiang Zhen Hai furrowed his brows, he couldn’t figure out how to face the strong Lee family. He looked towards Jiang Chen.
“Leave everything to me.”
Jiang Chen only said these 4 words, ‘leave everything to me’. His attitude was similar to that of a serene king, his face as calm as still water, yet full of confidence.
His calm aura made it seem like even if the sky were to fall down, he would still be able to remain calm.
Everyone was looking at each other. They had no idea why their young master was so confident even though his opponent was Red City’s Lee family, however, this young master had performed miracles before.
Jiang Chen’s confidence had influenced the rest of them. He was like a born king, making the people around him demonstrate their respect unknowingly.
Everyone had the mutual feeling that as long as young master Jiang Chen was present, all their problems would be solved.
At this time, even Jiang Zhen Hai couldn’t help himself, also treating Jiang Chen as his pillar.
“I believe in what our young master said, he must have a solution for this. We only need to take care of our own matters, and the first thing we need to do is take over the Mu Rong family’s pill shop.”
Zhou Bei Zhen said.
Jiang Chen said calmly, “I need to cultivate, no one is allowed to disturb me. Also, dad, please gather all of our Jiang family’s forces.”
“Gather all our forces? Chen’er, what do you want to do?”
Jiang Zhen Hai was startled, and the rest were also puzzled.
“I don’t know what Red City’s Lee family will do, but I do know that tonight, the Mu Rong family will disappear from Fragrant Sky city.”
Finishing his words, Jiang Chen turned around and walked back to his own mansion. He never liked to drag things out.
He was pretty sure that Mu Rong Zhan will use the Lee family to defeat the Jiang family, thus enjoying victory without paying a price. Since this was their intention, Jiang Chen will destroy the Mu Rong family before they could do anything. In Jiang Chen’s mind, an enemy was for him to destroy.
“Do you mean…? We will have an all-out war with the Mu Rong family tonight?”
Zhou Bei Zhen stared at Jiang Chen’s back, asking with a puzzled expression on his face.
“Do as Chen’er said, gather all the forces of our Jiang family.”
Jiang Zhen Hai raised his spirits.
Fragrant Sky city was going to experience something it never had before. Mu Rong Zhan was an old cunning fox, but he would never think that Jiang Zhen Hai would attack him at this hour.
