Chapter 60 – The Sudden Disturbance
“Senior elder, you’ll go to Fragrant Sky City and make sure that the Jiang family is safe!”
Yan Zhan Yun looked at Yan Hong Tai. As for Red city, there was no need to worry. Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were both strong. They were equal to Mortal Core warriors, and if Yan Chen Yu could unleash the power of the Nine Yin Meridians, she would be able to fill the gap left by Yan Hong Tai.
“Alright, I’ll leave right now and start heading over to Fragrant Sky city! Rest assured Brother Jiang Chen. As long as Yan Hong Tai is there, no one will be allowed to touch a single grass or piece of wood in the Jiang family mansion!”
Yan Hong Tai promised.
“Thank you elder!”
Jiang Chen cupped his fists respectfully towards Yan Hong Tai. With Yan Hong Tai’s promise, Jiang Chen could now finally be at ease. Next, he would settle the debts with the Lee family, and after finish that, Jiang Chen would have no more worries. That was when he would enter Origin Mountains and start his journey.
Yan Hong Tai left Red city and started journeying towards Fragrant Sky city. As for the Yan family, they had started preparing. They were preparing for when the Lee family started their attack, so they wouldn’t be unprepared.
The last few days, the Lee family had been soaked in sadness and grief. The funeral for Lee Chang Hao wasn’t even complete yet, and now they needed to hold another funeral for Lee Chang Ming. The atmosphere amongst the Lee family members was depressing. The depressing atmosphere came from Lee Shan Yue’s anger. Even the lowest rank guards and servants were frightened. As a result, they didn’t dare breathe too loud.
Inside the Lee family’s courtyard, a huge mourning hall had been constructed with black clothes. In the center of the hall, there were two black caskets. There were three words painted in white on top of each casket, ‘Remember the dead.’ Lee Shan Yue and a few other Mortal Core warriors were standing in front of the altar.
At this moment, a spy from the Lee family rushed in with a panicked expression and a sweat-drenched face.
A Mortal Core warrior asked with a frown on his face.
“Chief, Jiang Chen is alive!”
That man said carefully.
Indeed, upon hearing this, Lee Shan Yue’s anger instantly exploded out. He turned his head to the side, the scar on his face looking horrific.
“What did you just say? What is that Chen Shuang doing?! Why hasn’t he killed him yet?!”
Lee Shang Yue was really furious.
“Jiang Chen is still alive! Your servant saw with my own eyes that he entered the Misty Rain Tower together with that big yellow dog! Oh, and there was some young girl dressed in purple following them as well. It looked like she was 14-15 years old! And I never saw any disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect come out from the mountain!”
The man spoke carefully. He was scared that if he provoked the currently enraged Lee Shan Yue, Lee Shan Yue might release his anger and slap him to death. No one wanted to die like that, and he knew that Lee Shan Yue had just killed two of his own men before this.
The spy didn’t recognized Yan Chen Yu. After suffering from the Nine Yin Meridians since she was a small girl, Yan Chen Yu never took a step outside the Yan family. As she had grown up into a pretty young lady, it was only obvious that this man couldn’t recognize her.
“Lucky brat, he is hard to kill!”
Lee Shan Yue clenched his fists so tight that cracking sounds could be heard. He thought that with Chen Shuang’s strength and abilities, he would certainly be able kill Jiang Chen. If this was the case, then even if he was unable to personally kill Jiang Chen and get his revenge, he could still focus on the Jiang family in Fragrant Sky city, seeking chances to finish them off.
But he never thought that Jiang Chen would be this lucky and be able to leave Origin Mountain alive. How could this not make him angry? As for this young girl dressed in purple, Lee Shan Yue didn’t pay any attention to her. He was only concerned about the death of Jiang Chen.
“Chief, this boy is really mysterious. Even the men from the Heavenly Sword Sect can’t kill him… Do you think Chen Shuang and Ruan Ling were killed by Jiang Chen?”
A man said as he furrowed his brows.
“I think that he did kill them! Chief, this boy is growing really fast. We need to find a way to get rid of him quickly. If we allow him to continue growing, I don’t think it will take a lot of time before getting revenge becomes possible. Our Lee family will probably be destroyed by that boy!”
An elder of the Lee family said. Jiang Chen’s growth had finally made them frightened. His existence alone was the Lee family’s biggest threat; they needed to get rid of him as soon as possible.
“Are you sure that Jiang Chen went back to the Yan family, and not back to Fragrant Sky city?”
Lee Shan Yue looked at that spy.
“Your servant had witnessed it clearly. My information isn’t wrong!”
The spy replied.
“Looks like the time for a war with the Yan family is here! Gather all our forces, prepare for war with the Yan family, and kill that Jiang Chen at any cost!”
Lee Shan Yue said while grinding his teeth. All three of his sons had died. He couldn’t bear it any longer, so he had to get into action now. If they let Jiang Chen go back to Fragrant Sky city, he would be too afraid of the Heavenly Core warrior and wouldn’t have the courage to attack him. But as for the Yan family, there was still a chance for Lee Shan Yue to kill Jiang Chen as long as he was with them.
“Chief, we’ve just lost a huge number of men, and our spirits are low… If we start a war with the Yan family… I don’t think it’s appropriate!”
A worried man said.
“Don’t talk about that anymore! There must be a way. I will use the blood of Jiang Chen and the men from the Yan family to pray for my three sons and those young geniuses who are now dead!”
Lee Shan Yue waved his hand and made up his mind. He must kill Jiang Chen no matter what.
That same night, both the Lee family and the Yan family were preparing for war at the same time. The people in the city had a feeling that the wind was just sweeping through before the heavy storm arrived. From the visible changes in the families’ businesses, it looked like both families were serious this time.
“I saw that many of the Lee family businesses were shutting their doors, and the Misty Rain Tower have also closed theirs. It looks like the two families are truly going to war… Red city is going to turn into a place of chaos!”
“This is all because of that Jiang Chen! This man has killed all of Lee Shan Yue’s sons; even Lee Chang Ming who had recently broken through to the Early Mortal Core realm was killed by him! It’s no wonder why Lee Shan Yue has become so furious!”
“You should all have heard this by now! During the assessment in Origin Mountain today, all the geniuses from the Lee family’s young generation were killed by Jiang Chen! This Jiang Chen is a really daring man. He even dared to kill the disciples of the Heavenly Sword Sect!”
“He is too fierce; he even dares kill the men from the Heavenly Sword Sect! This is the fiercest man I have ever seen! The ignition of chaos in this city is all because of him!”
“This guy is the incarnation of a demon! I heard that the chaos in Fragrant Sky city was because of him as well! The Mu Rong family in Fragrant Sky city was completely destroyed by him! He is both fierce and cruel!”
This city was going to become a place of chaos, and everyone felt helpless about this. You couldn’t go anywhere in this city without hearing someone talk about Jiang Chen. From Fragrant Sky city to Red city, Jiang Chen had become a reincarnated demon. Wherever he went, trouble followed!
In the following three days, both families were preparing intensely. Lee Shan Yue didn’t even bury his two sons. He wanted to get revenge for them before letting them sleep in peace.
Later in the evening, the Lee family had gathered all of their combat forces, and they were just waiting for orders. Lee Shan Yue was wearing a black robe and sat in the master seat in the hall.
“Chief, everything is ready!”
A Mortal Core warrior said.
“Good! Tonight will be the final battle between our Lee family and the Yan family!”
Lee Shan Yue said coldly.
“Chief, our men are low on spirit, and our spies have report that the Yan family is preparing as well! Under such circumstances, I’m afraid we are no match for them!”
Someone said worriedly.
“Enough saying that, there is no return! Even if both sides suffer, and even if our Lee family is going to meet its end today, I will still kill Jiang Chen this night! If I don’t, then he will just keep growing, and our Lee family will only have the option of waiting for him to find and kill us!”
Lee Shan Yue was a ruthless man. If he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be able to get his position in Red city.
Right at this moment, a thousand miles away from Red city, a huge black hawk flew out from Origin Mountain. Its speed was incredibly fast. It was 10 meters tall, and it had a pair of black wings that were as hard as metal.
“Haha, I’ve been jailed for twenty years! Finally I’m free!”
The black hawk was laughing out loud. It wiggled its body and transformed into an old man who looked like he was in his fifties. The man was skinny and wore a black robe, and he had a pair of cold, sharp hawk eyes.
“There’s a city up ahead; let’s have a look at it.”
The old man wiggled his body and turned back into a black hawk before he started flying towards Red city with extreme speed. As a Heavenly Core Demon Lord, his speed was incredibly swift. Furthermore, he was an aerial Demon Beast. In just a second, he arrived at the center of Red city.
The arrival of the black hawk caused several tornadoes to appear above the city. The Heavenly Core was pressuring everyone.
“Look! A huge hawk, with such a powerful force!”
“Heavens! It is a Heavenly Core Demon Lord. Why did it come here?!”
Many people saw the black hawk and were shocked. In Red city, a being at the Heavenly Core realm had never appeared before.
Jiang Chen looked into the sky with a frown on his face. With his vision, he could easily tell the level of this black hawk. The black hawk was as the peak of the Early Heavenly Core realm, just a step away from the Mid Heavenly Core realm.
Big Yellow looked at the black hawk, and suddenly a smile appeared on his face for some unknown reason.
“A Heavenly Core Demon Lord!”
Yan Zhan Yun was shocked as well. The war between the Lee family and the Yan family almost started, but a Heavenly Core Demon Lord suddenly appeared. Just its appearance alone had disturbed the city, and perhaps it would cause even more disturbances.
The black hawk flying above the sky suddenly wiggled his body. His sharp vision looked towards the direction at which the Lee family was located at.
“There are some treasures! Although it is hid deeply, I can still find them! Such a familiar smell… It is the Demon Soul of a Blood Winger Hawk! Hahaha, Blood Winged Hawk!”
The black hawk suddenly started laughing out loud. His wings rolled back, and he turned into an old man. He landed right in front of the Lee family mansion.
The Blood Winged Hawk was a rare hawk species. It had the noblest bloodline amongst the hawks. The big black hawk was a hawk himself, so he had a better sense for things of his kind. This was why even though the Blood Winged Hawk’s Demon Soul was hidden deeply, the big black hawk could still easily sense it.
The big black hawk never would have thought that there would be a Blood Winged Hawk’s Demon Soul in this little city. If he was able to get this Demon Soul, he would be able to absorbed the Blood Winged Hawk’s bloodline and inherit its innate abilities, thoroughly remolding himself.
Within the Lee family’s courtyard, everyone was paying attention to the big black hawk. The big black hawk, who now had the appearance of an old man, suddenly landed in front of Lee Shan Yue. His blade like vision gazed at everyone before finally landing on Lee Shan Yue.
“Hand over the Blood Winged Hawk’s Demon Soul now! If you don’t hand it over, I’ll kill every last one of you!”
The first thing big black hawk did was threaten them.
