Chapter 1194: Incompetent Person
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Martial Souls were divided into two categories: weapons and living beings. Martial Soul weapons’ grades were decided according to five special traits, for example, Sword Soul. For Martial Soul living beings, their power depended on the creatures’ fame.
w.a.n.g Fei’s Martial Soul was a Hou, and it was rumored that it was a powerful creature that preyed upon dragons. However, when it faced Jiang Chen’s Martial Soul, it was at a disadvantage, and w.a.n.g Fei definitely didn’t expect this. Upon having a clear look at Jiang Chen’s Martial Soul, w.a.n.g Fei was dumbfounded. It was the Immortal Divine Bird, and it was what the Celestial Phoenix had evolved into. It was only people with an inherited bloodline that could get such a Martial Soul.
The Immortal Divine Bird was flying now among the sea of flames. It had a beautiful body and long, broad wings. Its feathers seemed sparkling and translucent, as if they were carved from jade. Yet they still seemed soft and supple. Moreover, starlight would emanate from its feathers occasionally.
As for the Hou? It seemed quite hideous and ugly in comparison to that bird.
“Since the fourth layer has the Solar Golden Flame, then I won’t refuse the Flame Emperor’s inheritance,” Jiang Chen said.
“What, after this?” w.a.n.g Fei didn’t understand what he meant by this.
“I will fight over the Flame Emperor’s inheritance, and you will be the first person I will kill for it.”
Upon hearing this, w.a.n.g Fei sneered coldly. “Have you a.s.sumed that the battle’s outcome has already been determined? Stop boasting.”
The Hou’s eyes shone with a ferocious glint, and all its body hair stood on end, while it glared at the Immortal Divine Bird.
“The disparity between our Martial Souls won’t make up for the disparity between us.” As w.a.n.g Fei spoke, his Solar Golden Flame and Purple Eerie Divine Flame started fusing and emitted an intense reaction, while flames even came out of the Hou’s body.
“Heavenly King’s Divine Fist!” w.a.n.g Fei used his whole power and attempted to kill his opponent with a single strike. The Hou emitted a deafening shout, and, if they had been outside, such a shout would have been enough to cause an earthquake.
However, the Divine Tree was quite mystical, and the fighters’ terrifying Alien Flames didn’t burn even a single leaf.
w.a.n.g Fei didn’t hold anything back, and his fist energy possessed great power that coordinated along with the Hou. The Hou didn’t charge at Jiang Chen. Instead, it targeted the Immortal Divine Bird.
“Sky-burning Evil Flame!” Jiang Chen also exposed his hidden technique, which he had learned not long ago. This was the heaven-defying technique invented by his father, the Over Cloud Palace’s Master, to control evil flames. After the Immortal Divine Bird appeared, Jiang Chen finally managed to master the technique, and it could be seen that raging flames were rising from the bird, while every piece of its feathers possessed a terrifying might. The divine bird dove down fast and contended against the angry Hou.
Upon witnessing that Jiang Chen dared to face him head-on, w.a.n.g Fei became slightly skeptical about this matter. But since this affair had already gone so far, he could only risk his neck and give it his all.
The two divine beasts ended up colliding, and it could be discerned that the Hou was melting quickly. The divine bird cried loudly, and the sea of flames surged up.
“Ah!” w.a.n.g Fei clenched his teeth and used both hands in a joint attack.
The Hou exploded before it was melted completely, and the raging flames, which had both golden and purple colors mixed in them, fell upon the Immortal Divine Bird. They injured the bird, and its beautiful body was corroded by the flames. After all, the great power formed by the Solar Golden Flame and an Alien Flame was great enough to make up for the disparity between their Martial Souls.
“This is the fourth layer.” w.a.n.g Fei revealed a complacent smile. Even though he had lost, he had still surpa.s.sed his opponent.
“Worldly Wind and Lightning: Sword of Wind and Lightning Apex.” However, just as w.a.n.g Fei was feeling elated, Jiang Chen’s shout rang out near his ears.
w.a.n.g Fei raised his head with his face filled with fright, and he witnessed a Doctrine Sword flying in the air. The Doctrine Sword swayed around in the air, and the Boundless Sword Soul, which could be easily recognized, appeared there.
“Two Martial Souls?” w.a.n.g Fei’s heart s.h.i.+vered. He didn’t expect such a situation at all. Moreover, the Sword Soul wasn’t weak, and it possessed two out of the five special traits. As Jiang Chen used one of the Worldly Wind and Lightning’s five sword moves, the disturbance caused by him wasn’t any less than the one caused by the Immortal Divine Bird.
A moment ago, w.a.n.g Fei had been pleased with himself because even if his Martial Soul couldn’t deal with his opponent, he still had other cards up his sleeve. But he didn’t expect that Jiang Chen would thrust his sword at him. When w.a.n.g Fei detected this sword strike’s might, he escaped decisively. However, Jiang Chen didn’t plan to let him off so easily, and he controlled the Boundless Sword Soul to chase after him, while the wind and lightning sword attacked him remotely.
w.a.n.g Fei bore the pain of those attacks, and he continued rus.h.i.+ng around quickly. He hadn’t managed to avoid the sword strike, and he was now just stalling for time. Once he stopped, the Sword of Wind and Lightning Apex Technique would leave him half-alive. w.a.n.g Fei could only place his hope on the road ahead of him, and he hoped to run into his companions, the other divine-grade disciples of the Abundance Land Academy. However, it was a pity that he ran into the other two great academies’ disciples. When those people detected the might of Jiang Chen’s Boundless Sword Soul, they all got out of the way.
“Isn’t that a divine-grade disciple? Is he hunted down by Jiang Chen?”
There were also Abundance Land Academy’s disciples who witnessed this sight. But they couldn’t intervene in this matter. When Jiang Chen left the Abundance Land Academy, he was still just a ghost-grade disciple, and there was still another dragon-grade between him and divine grade-disciples. Yet it seemed like his power had surpa.s.sed such a grade’s standard by far long ago.
“Hateful!” w.a.n.g Fei became quite anxious became he would be shortly overtaken by the Sword of Wind and Lighting Apex, and, if he wasn’t constantly using the Solar Golden Flame, he would have been struck by it long ago. At such a precarious moment, he detected a group of people with powerful auras ahead of him.
“Sword Tower friends, please help me. I will surely be grateful to you.” w.a.n.g Fei managed to recognize the Sword Tower’s disciple, Lin Tianjian, who was there.
“Well?” Lin Tianjian frowned. He was quite irritated by this. “If you try to bring your troubles upon us, don’t blame my sword for being merciless.” Lin Tianjian wouldn’t help w.a.n.g Fei.
“This person’s name is Jiang Chen, and he has claimed that he’s the greatest swordsman. Can you bear and tolerate such a matter?” w.a.n.g Fei was desperate, and he started shouting recklessly.
The Sword Tower disciples became all worked up by his words. Even though they were clearly aware that what w.a.n.g Fei had said wasn’t true their pride as Sword Tower disciples made them decide to target Jiang Chen, who was coming at them.
“You have a Sword Soul with just two special traits. Yet you still dare to boast?” Lin Tianjian attacked decisively. The sword on his waist flew by itself and faced the Boundless Sword Soul.
“Get out of the way!” Upon witnessing that the Sword Tower disciples wanted to ruin this affair for him, Jiang Chen was quite displeased.
“I will block you here. You had a grudge against the Wizard Clan, and you tried to implicate our Lin family. I still haven’t paid you back for it.” After Lin Tianjian spoke, he used a sword strike quickly. The Sword of Wind and Lightning Apex’s might erupted out, and the whole region was engulfed by a hurricane.
Lin Tianjian’s sword revolved around in the sky, and it was only after a long while that it went back to his hand. That was just a casual strike, yet he still managed to block the Wind and Lightning Sword Strike. This matter demonstrated clearly the disparity between the two people’s sword expertise. At least, there was a disparity between them as long as Jiang Chen didn’t fuse with his magical clones.
“Sword Tower friends, many thanks for helping me.” w.a.n.g Fei was overjoyed, and, after he thanked them, he was about to leave.
“Stop!” However, he was stopped by the Sword Tower disciples.
“Our Sword Tower members aren’t a s.h.i.+eld that can be used by you as you want,” a Sword Tower disciple spoke coldly.
w.a.n.g Fei chuckled sheepishly and didn’t say anything.
“I don’t care about the feud between you, and I used a sword strike to block you just so that you realize that you can’t talk drivel about anything you want.” Lin Tianjian was referring to the Love Seed put in Lin Shuangyue by the Wizard Clan’s Ji Hai last time.
After Jiang Chen exposed the Wizard Clan, the Wizard Clan paid a large sum to the Lin family and asked them to deny it. In the end, Jiang Chen didn’t manage to please anyone, and he even ended up becoming an enemy of the Wizard Clan. It seemed as if Lin Tianjian wasn’t aware of this matter’s ins and outs, and he believed the Lin family’s statement.
“If you want to know what really happened, you must go back and question your Lin family’s upper-echelon,” Jiang Chen said.
Lin Tianjian curled his lips, and it was obvious that he was irritated by this. “What happened to the outside world? All incompetent and weak people are arrogant. It was first Lu Ping, and now it’s you.”
