Chapter 43 – Ten Thousand Miles Pursuit of a Dog
The Lee family had suffered a great loss. Another son of Lee Shan Yue had been killed, and they had lost a low rank combat weapon to their opponents. This had humiliated Lee Shan Yue, but everyone knew that someone like Lee Shan Yue wouldn’t let this matter go easily.
Looking at the men from the Lee family retreating, Jiang Chen stood there with an indifferent expression. His calm face didn’t show a single emotion.
Calm, intelligent, brave, cruel.
This was a frightening young man. Everyone knew his name by now, and they could expect that with the arrival of this cruel young man, the chaos this city had been waiting for had finally arrived.
“Brother Jiang Chen, Lee Shan Yue won’t let go of what happened today easily. Although you have great strength and abilities, you’re still weak. For the next few days, just stay within our Misty Rain Tower. Lee Shan Yue wouldn’t dare come attack someone within the Misty Rain Tower.”
Yan Zhan Yun told Jiang Chen. The fight today had further impressed the men from the Yan family. Such a mighty young man, if compared with the other talents in this city, only Yan Chen Yu who had the Nine Yin Meridians could match him. Even Yan Yang felt inferior to him.
Jiang Chen nodded his head. In fact, he wasn’t prepared to stay here for too long, but he was worried about Yan Chen Yu. He would only leave after Yan Chen Yu had woken up. Besides, he wanted to witness the birth of a genius with Nine Yin Meridians.
As long as he settled the matters with Yan Chen Yu, Jiang Chen would leave this place. He didn’t take the Lee family’s threats to his heart. His only current priority was to raise his level, which was why he had prepared to enter Origin Mountain and train.
“Brother Jiang Chen, you saved our lives again today! I really don’t know how to express my gratitude!”
A wounded Wang Ting told Jiang Chen with an extremely grateful attitude.
“That’s right, Brother Jiang Chen is incredibly strong! You’ve made yourself famous with the fight today!”
Another man said.
“You guys had to suffer because of me. I can’t just sit by and do nothing.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile. He turned around towards Yan Zhan Yun, “Chief Yan, please arrange some jobs for these four men in the Misty Rain Tower. Help me cure them and let them stay in the Misty Rain Tower. At least make sure they are safe.”
“Don’t worry Brother Jiang Chen. I’ll let Yan Meng take care of it.”
Yan Zhan Yun replied.
Plain white cloth hung on the Lee family’s main entrance door. Lee Shan Yue wanted to hold his own son’s funeral personally. Everyone in the Lee family were extremely sad.
“Chief, young master is cultivating behind closed doors. Should we inform him?”
“No, Ming’er is currently at a critical point of breaking through to the Mortal Core realm. If he is disturbed, it will affect him greatly. Arrange our men to block all the exits of this city, watch the Misty Rain Tower closely, and inform me immediately once Jiang Chen tries to leave the Misty Rain Tower.”
Lee Shan Yue said in an insidious manner.
No one dared to neglect the order since Lee Shan Yue was already on the border of exploding from anger.
“Third brother, please go to Fragrant Sky city and watch the Jiang family closely. Try your best to get information on the Heavenly Core warrior.”
Lee Shan Yue said with a gloomy face.
“Alright, I’ll leave right now.”
The third brother was a Mid Mortal Core warrior. He held his fist respectfully towards Lee Shan Yue and left immediately.
Right at this moment, huge tornadoes appeared above the Lee family’s mansion. Strong air waves turned into tornadoes and flew towards a direction, the natural energy surrounding the Lee family depleting with great speed.
Noticing this, the gloomy face on Lee Shan Yue instantly turned into a joyful one. Both of his eyes lit up like a torch in the dark night, his eyes were so bright that they emitted beams of light towards that direction within the Lee family mansion.
“Haha, Ming’er has broken through to the Mortal Core realm! The number one genius in this city is my Ming’er!”
Lee Shan Yue started laughing out loud.
At the same time, thousands of miles north-west from Red city, three young men walked out of a huge mountain range. This mountain was called the Origin Mountain. It covered more than ten thousand miles. Numerous demon beasts lived within, and it was a natural place.
This ten thousand miles’ mountain range almost covered the entire territory that separated Red city and the inner sections of the Qi Province. It was a huge territory by itself. In fact, although there were numerous demon beasts within Origin Mountains, there weren’t any beasts that are truly strong, and none of them were at the Heavenly Core realm. Because of the geographical location, however, it was still isolated from other places. Those big sects from the Qi Province never really paid much attention towards this territory when they were recruiting new disciples every year.
The three individuals who walked out from Origin Mountain was in their twenties, two men and one lady. They were wearing the same style of clothes, which was a light yellow robe with an exquisite small blade embossed on the chest. It was obvious that these three individuals came from the same sect.
The lady had a curvy body and was as beautiful as a blossomed flower. Although she couldn’t compare with Yan Chen Yu, she was still a pretty lady. She and another young man who had a mole on his face had both reached the Early Mortal Core realm. The young man who stood in the middle was handsome and was bearing a tolerant spirit. From the energy he was unintentionally unleashing, one could tell that he had reached the Mid Mortal Core realm. He was clearly the leader of this group, and the girl looked at him with a look full of adoration.
“Brother Chen Shuang, how come we had to cross Origin Mountain and come to this remote place?”
The girl asked.
“That dog made us lose our direction in the mountains. We’ve traveled for almost one month, and now we’ve come to this rubbish place. Brother Chen, we have to go back fast.”
The other man scolded. Recalling what they had experienced these days, he couldn’t contain his pent up anger.
“Sister Ruan Ling, Brother Shao Hua, since we’re already here, let’s go to the city in front of us and have a look. Perhaps that stupid dog has come here. We’ve been out for a month, and if we can’t catch that stupid dog we’ll just lose face once we go back. Besides, living in the mountains for the past month was just too boring.”
Chen Shuang said before he started walking towards Red city. Ruan Ling and Shao Hua hurriedly started walking after him, “If we catch that stupid dog, I’ll skin it alive and cook it in the pot.”
Evening, at the Yan family!
The whole event of awakening the Nine Yin Meridians was not as easy as expected. It had been almost a whole day, but nothing had happened. The whole room was still frozen. Yan Zhan Yun and the rest of the men were still waiting anxiously in the courtyard.
At this point of time, Yan Xing ran to them again with a panicked expression.
“Yan Xing, what’s happening now? Don’t tell me Lee Shan Yue is here again?”
Yan Zhan Yun furrowed his bros. He now had all his attention paid towards Yan Chen Yu; he doesn’t want anything else to bother him.
“No, it’s not the Lee family, there are people from the Heavenly Sword Sect here!”
Yan Xing said with a look of excitement. The Heavenly Sword Sect, and they were here in Red city!
“Heavenly Sword Sect?”
Everyone felt annoyed.
“A while ago three young men came and claimed they were outer section disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect. They are currently in the Heavenly Falls Tower, and they sent a messenger demanding that the Chief should come meet them personally.”
Yan Xing said.
“What? Disciples from the Heavenly Sword Sect?”
Yan Hong Tai shouted out in surprise as he finally recalled what the Heavenly Sword Sect was. Although Origin Mountain isolated them, they were all Mortal Core warriors who had their own information sources. They knew about the big sects in the Qi Province very clearly, and the Heavenly Sword Sect was one of the four big sects in the Qi Province. They were a big shot, but it was a pity that Red city was located at a remote place on the other side of Origin Mountain. They never really got any attention from the four big sects. That was why even if there was some incredibly talented man in Red city, there would be no way for them to join the four big sects.
Who would ever expect that disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect would come here to Red city, this was huge news for everyone in the city.
“That’s right, not many people knows that there are disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect in the city. The man from Heavenly Falls Tower told me that these three disciples are all young, but all of them are at the Mortal Core realm. One of them is also at the Mid Mortal Core realm. They are also wearing the Heavenly Sword Sect uniform, so they must come from the Heavenly Sword Sect. But, it is unclear why they’ve decided to come here now.”
Yan Xing said.
“The disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect purposely demanded me to meet them in Heavenly Falls Tower personally?”
Yan Zhan Yun asked. Heavenly Falls Tower was pretty famous in this city. It was a big restaurant and hotel, and it doesn’t belong to either the Yan family or the Lee family.
“That’s right, the disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect demanded to meet the men from the most powerful family in Red city. I’m guessing you’re not the only one on the list; I bet Lee Shan Yue is too.”
Yan Xing guessed and said.
“Alright, I’ll go right now.”
Without any hesitation, Yan Zhan Yun walked out from the courtyard. The disciples from the Heavenly Sword Sect, he didn’t dare neglect them even slightly.
“Why did people from the Heavenly Sword Sect come to Red city?”
Yan Yang said with a puzzled expression.
“Who knows? Perhaps something good is about to happen.”
“True. Yan Yang, you need to put in some effort. Perhaps you can join one of the big sects in the Qi Province by getting to know these Heavenly Sword Sect disciples.”
Yan Hong Tai said.
Jiang Chen who stood aside was thinking to himself; he didn’t know a thing about this Heavenly Sword Sect. In his past life, he had gone to many places in the Heavenly Continent, and he had never put those big sects in his mind. He had no clue about those super big sects in the Eastern Continent either.
In order for him to enter the Heavenly Continent, however, he will need to leave Red city first and enter the Qi Province. Meeting up with these apprentices from the Heavenly Sword Sect might be a good idea.
It was unclear how people would react if they knew that the real reason why these disciples from the Heavenly Sword Sect came here was because they were chasing a dog. They would definitely vomit some blood if they found out.
The Heavenly Falls Tower was located not far away from the Misty Rain Tower, and it was also not far from the Lee family. It was located right in the middle of the Lee family and the Misty Rain Tower, and it doesn’t belong to either of them.
It looked like Chen Shuang and the other two had obtained information about the most powerful families in Red city, which must be why they picked the meeting point to be Heavenly Falls Tower as it was not on the Lee family’s or the Misty Rain Tower’s side.
At the entrance of the Heavenly Falls Tower, Yan Zhan Yun and Lee Shan Yue arrived at the same time. They looked at each other, the atmosphere immediately becoming heated.
“Yan Zhan Yun, what happened today has not ended yet. It is impossible for your family to protect that little bastard.”
Lee Shan Yue let out a cold humph.
“Lee Shan Yue, you should be attending the funeral of your son at home. I don’t think it’s appropriate for you to be running around right now?”
Yan Zhan Yun said in a teasing manner.
What he said had hurt Lee Shan Yue. He immediately became furious.
“What do you want? You want to fight me now?”
Yan Zhan Yun said with a sneer smile. He wasn’t scared of Lee Shan Yue like the others. He was the only one in this city who wasn’t scared of Lee Shan Yue.
“Hmph! The men from the Heavenly Sword Sect are here, I don’t want to argue with you right now.”
Lee Shan Yue said while grinding his teeth before entering the Heavenly Falls Tower.
