Chapter 29 – Deserves to die
The Lee family arrived in an imposing manner, but they fled in a hurry. All the people in Fragrant Sky city were surprised; none of them had expected anything like this. Everyone was preparing for chaos and agony, but in the end, nothing happened.
“The men from the Lee family are gone… Looks like there is a hidden Heavenly Core warrior hidden in the Jiang family.”
“Wow, a Heavenly Core warrior! That’s an incredibly powerful existence. I never would have thought the Jiang family would be protected by someone like that… No wonder the Lee family had to retreat.”
“It’s good for them to retreat. As long as the Jiang family is safe, our city will not fall into chaos. I just hope that the Lee family stays away from this town for good.”
The news spread fast. The scene where the Lee family retreated had been witnessed by a lot of people, and it did not take long for rumors about the hidden Heavenly Core warrior to spread. Furthermore, all of the people who were somewhat close to the Mayor’s mansion could feel the pressure.
Jiang Chen had fainted for one hour before waking up. He had a terrible headache, and he felt incredibly dizzy.
Jiang Chen didn’t get up immediately. He started circulating the Great Soul Derivation skill, and only after a few minutes did his terrible headache subside enough for him to sit up on the bed. He swallowed a Mortal Restoration Pill and crossed his legs. He then started circulating the Dragon Transformation skill together with the Great Soul Derivation skill, restoring his energy.
Outside of Jiang Chen’s house, Jiang Zhen Hai, Zhou Bei Zhen and the rest of the Qi Hai warriors were walking back and forth anxiously. They were waiting for Jiang Chen to come out, and they also wished to meet the Heavenly Core warrior.
They waited for an entire day. The sun had set, and the night had fallen. Jiang Chen had yet to show himself.
Inside the room, Jiang Chen suddenly opened his eyes. His hair was floating without any wind blowing. His face was still pale, but his condition was much better than what it was before.
“Indeed, the Dragon Transformation skill is a mighty skill… The qi and blood is powerful, and the ability to heal is strong as well… Unfortunately, the damage on my soul is not going to be restored easily.”
Jiang Chen said with a sigh. All of his wounds had been healed, but the damage to his soul was too serious.
Right now, Jiang Chen’s soul was in a miserable state. The backlash from utilizing the Great Soul Derivation skill like that was too powerful.
“I won’t be able to concoct any pills at the moment because of the state of my soul… I will have to find a way to restore my soul as soon as possible.”
Jiang Chen thought to himself. The soul was the most important part of any human, and if the soul was damaged, the consequences would be very serious. When the soul was damaged, you will first lose your ability to concoct pills followed your ability to focus and then your ability to cultivate.
Although Jiang Chen’s soul was under continuous healing from the Great Soul Derivation skill, the damage this time was too great. The healing alone was not enough for him to recover. What he currently required was a pill that could nourish his soul and a rare natural item.
But the rare natural item and the soul-recovery pills were incredibly precious. The natural item that could heal the soul was even rarer than the materials for the pills, and it was impossible to find it in this small city.
“Looks like I have to make a trip to Red city. I can search for the pill that could restore my soul there, and I can also pay close attention to the Lee family’s movements.”
Jiang Chen decided what his next step was going to be. He had to go to Red city. He had killed Lee Chang Hong, and someone like Lee Shan Yue would never give up on this matter. When he goes back he will keep spying on the Jiang family’s status because once he discovered that the Heavenly Core warrior does not exist… The Jiang family will then meet their doom.
Jiang Chen was not a passive type of person; he liked to have control of everything.
He stood up, pushed the door open and walked out of his room.
“Dad, Uncle Zhou, why are all of you gathered here?”
Jiang Chen asked with a curious look on his face.
Seeing Jiang Chen come out of his room, everyone’s eyes lit up upon seeing him. They had waited for an entire day. Some of these people had embarrassed looks on their faces; they were wrong about Jiang Chen. They thought Jiang Chen was hiding in his own room and didn’t want to come out, but in fact, he was accompanying a Heavenly Core warrior.
Young master wasn’t bluffing. There was a Heavenly Core warrior behind him. That was why he was so confident and did not show any fear when facing the Lee family.
“Chen’er, since when have there been a Heavenly Core warrior within our family?”
Jiang Zhen Hai couldn’t wait any longer, he directly asked.
“Young master, how long have you known the Heavenly Core warrior? None of us knew about this.”
Zhou Bei Zhen asked.
“Dad, Uncle Zhou, this Heavenly Core warrior has a weird personality. He wants to be quiet and cultivate in my room. He doesn’t want to be disturbed. That’s why I didn’t tell any of you about this.”
Jiang Chen said casually.
No one doubted what Jiang Chen just said; a true high ranked warrior had a unique personality.
A true high ranked warrior liked to cultivate in peace, and he doesn’t like to be disturbed. Right, it must be like that.
“Chen’er, the great warrior has saved many lives from our family. I would like to meet him and personally thank him for what he has done.”
Jiang Zhen Hai said.
“Dad, I told you, he doesn’t want to see anyone. Amongst all the people in this city, he is only willing to see me alone. If I bring anyone to see him, I am afraid this great warrior would leave immediately.”
Jiang Chen said with his hands wide open.
Hearing that the great warrior would leave immediately, everyone started panicking.
“Alright, I won’t go see him. But, Chen’er, you have to show great gratitude to him. If he has any wishes, the just let me know, we will do our best to fulfill his requests.”
Jiang Zhen Hai said. The relationship between the Jiang family and the Lee family had gone from neutral to mortal enemies. The Jiang family could only depend on this Heavenly Core warrior, and if he left the city and the Lee family came here again… The Jiang family would be slaughtered.
“Don’t worry dad. Also, where’s that Mu Rong Tian?”
Jiang Chen’s vision turned cold. Mu Rong Tian was the only survivor of the Mu Rong family, and he was a Qi Hai warrior, making him a huge threat. Jiang Chen wanted to get rid of this potential threat. That was the reason why Jiang Chen demanded Lee Shan Yue to leave Mu Rong Tian behind. Jiang Chen refused to let any potential threats get away.
“He was locked up together with those two bastards, Yang Xiao and Chang Shan.”
Zhou Bei Zhen said.
“Go, bring them here.”
Jiang Chen said.
Zhou Bei Zhen, the fat and skinny old men replied, turned around and left.
Not long after, Zhou Bei Zhen brought Mu Rong Tian and the other two to Jiang Chen. Their faces were full of bloodstains, and their Qi was a mess. Obviously, they received some harsh beatings before this.
“Jiang Chen, you little bastard, you have destroyed the Mu Rong family! I will not let you go, even if I turn into a ghost!”
Mu Rong Tian immediately started cursing upon seeing Jiang Chen.
Zhou Bei Zhen said before slapping him.
Jiang Chen’s face turned cold, and he pointed out two fingers. A fiery red flame shot out from his fingers like a long sword. He swung it towards Mu Rong Zhan like a bolt of lightning, cutting through Mu Rong Tian’s neck instantly. Blood splashed out like a water fountain, and Mu Rong Tian was immediately silenced.
All the men at the scene had seen what Jiang Chen was capable of, but they still couldn’t help feeling a shiver down their spines upon seeing him casually killing Mu Rong Tian.
“The winner takes it all; that is the rule.”
Jiang Chen said coldly without even taking a second look at Mu Rong Tian’s corpse. His vision was now focused on Yang Xiao and Chang Shan.
With just a gaze, both men kneeled down onto the ground. Jiang Chen’s eyes had completely terrified them.
“Please spare our lives young master, we took things too hard. That’s why we made such a stupid decision.”
“Please spare our lives, I am willing to serve young master for the rest of my life as a servant.”
Both men kept kowtowing to Jiang Chen. For someone like them who immensely feared death, the young master in front of them resembled an angel of death.
“If I had a servant like you then I wouldn’t be able to sleep well.”
Jiang Chen had a look of disgust on his face. The reason he didn’t start pressuring Lee Shan Yue earlier was because he wanted to test the loyalty of the men from the Jiang family. Jiang Chen had used the opportunity given to him by Lee Shan Yue to get rid of the scum in the Jiang family.
Fragrant Sky city was a small city, and for the Jiang family, a Qi Hai warrior was very important. That was why he had to make sure that the Qi Hai warriors were loyal.
“Just kill them, they’re so disgusting.”
The skinny old men said with a hint of despise on his face.
At this moment, Yang Xiao and Chang Shan felt like crying. Their only wish right now was to go to sleep and never wake up.
Both of them were deeply regretting their decisions. If they knew that there was a hidden Heavenly Core warrior in the Jiang family, then they would rather die than betray the family. Those who decided to die together with the Jiang family were still alive and kicking right in front of them, as for the ones who wanted to live… They were facing death right now.
Jiang Zhen Hai let out a sigh. His face was full of pity and pain. These two men had followed him for quite some time, and there were even times when he had treated them like his own brothers.
For a man, the most painful thing was when your own brother betrays you.
Jiang Zhen Hai shook his head without even taking a second to look at the men. He turned around and left. Everyone could see the loneliness and pain from his back.
“Young master, what should we do to them?”
Zhou Bei Zhen said as he looked at Jiang Chen.
“Kill them both.”
He spoke these 3 words before turning around and following Jiang Zhen Hai’s footsteps. He could hear two screams behind him.
Midnight. The moon was shining bright in the sky, and on top of the roof of the Mayor’s mansion stood two men. Both of them stared at the bright moon in the sky without saying a single word.
These men were Jiang Chen and his father. For Jiang Zhen Hai, he had experienced too many things in his life, especially these past two days. He felt like he was dreaming. He never thought he would experience anything like this.
“When someone chooses to betray another person, he has to be ready for the consequences.”
Jiang Chen said calmly.
Jiang Zhen Hai said with a smile on his face. What happened today had a huge impact on him.
“Dad, I need to leave for a period of time.”
Jiang Chen changed the topic.
Jiang Zhen Hai was startled. He looked at Jiang Chen and asked, “Chen’er, where are you going?”
“Dad, don’t worry, I will just be gone for a short period of time… Don’t tell me you’re still worried about my abilities?”
Jiang Chen said with a laugh.
“You’re right, you have grown up and become an adult. Even I am no match for you. Dad knows that this small city can’t keep someone with your abilities for long. You have to go out and experience the world; that is the right thing to do.”
Jiang Zhen Hai said with a proud expression. He knew what Jiang Chen was capable of doing, so he wouldn’t worry if he wanted to go out and experience life. Ever since Jiang Chen had transformed into a new person, Jiang Zhen Hai had come to understand one fact; there was not a single person in this world who was capable of taking advantage of Jiang Chen.
