Chaotic Sword God - Chapter 1326
Chapter 1326: Return
Every single person hiding within the divine hall was fuming . They were furious, yet there was nothing they could do to vent their anger . They were completely helpless due to the current situation . They were not the opponents of the Tao family’s Saint Kings, and if they acted too recklessly, it would be extremely easy for them to die .
“I wonder when the ruler will return . If the ruler returns, he’ll definitely make the Tao family pay,” said an elder of the Turtle clan . He felt admiration from the bottom of his heart for Jian Chen, because he would never forget that the declining clan had only powered up so quickly under Jian Chen’s leadership . The reason why the clan possessed five 16th Star experts right now was all because of Jian Chen . It had nothing to do with the clan itself .
Qing Yixuan raised an eyebrow and disdainfully pouted . She sneered, “Tao Zhengtian has a divine hall . It’s not like you don’t know how tough divine halls are . Those that are not Saint Emperors cannot smash through them . I must admit that Jian Chen’s talent is extremely impressive and that he’s extremely powerful . However, he still can’t do anything to Tao Zhengtian since he has a divine hall . Even if he takes on Tao Zhengtian himself, he’s not his opponent . Under these circumstances, he’ll be useless even if he returns . ”
“We believe in the ruler . The ruler is wise . He’s our only hope . As long as the ruler is present, our clan will be able to take on any problem head-on . ” A clansmen clearly heard Qing Yixuan talk about Jian Chen from nearby and immediately stood up before righteously roaring out . He was extremely protective over the ruler .
“Yeah, that’s right . Our ruler is powerful . He is wise . Right now, our clan has only become like this because the ruler is not present . If the ruler was present, I believe our clan would be able to deal with any problem under his wise leadership . ”
“Isn’t everything happening today explaining everything even clearer? We cannot be without the ruler . Only when the ruler is with us can we become extremely powerful . Without the ruler, we are nothing . ”
More and more people spoke . They were extremely protective of Jian Chen and rebuked Qing Yixuan . They all possessed blind devotion to the ruler . Even their minds and beliefs were unconsciously affected by Jian Chen .
Seeing the mad devotion within the eyes of the clansmen, Qing Yixuan rubbed her head in pain . She shook her head helplessly and murmured, “You’re helpless . I really don’t understand how Jian Chen’s convinced so many people with how long he’s stayed in the clan . ”
Outside, Tao Zhengtian and the other Saint Kings continued spewing provocations . They virtually used everything to try to force out the ruler, but after several days of hard work, they had not caught even a single glimpse of Jian Chen .
Meanwhile, Tao Zhengtian and the others could not help but begin doubting themselves . They had already guessed that it was extremely likely that Jian Chen was not present, or he was in secluded cultivation .
“Let’s remain here . Even if the ruler of the Turtle clan isn’t here, he probably received a message from someone long ago . He’ll probably return soon . ” Tao Zhengtian sat sat on the top of the divine hall at ease . He stared at the Octoterra divine Hall with half-squinted eyes . He was extremely confident .
At this moment, the whistling of air rang out . Two figures quickly shot over from the distance .
To the Saint Kings, the two figures’ grasp over space was not very profound, but their speed was stunning because it was not slower than Saint Kings . Even some 16th Star experts could not travel as fast as them .
In the blink of an eye, the two of them stopped between the two divine halls . Their faces were finally visible at that moment . One of them was a young man who seemed to be in his twenties . He wore white robes and was handsome, filled with masculinity . His eyes were sharp like swords, and staring into his eyes would make the observer’s own eyeballs hurt .
The other person was an extremely burly man . His skin was golden and glowed with a faint, metallic luster . He seemed to be made of gold, and the most eye-catching part of him was the center of his brows . There was actually the imprint of an axe there .
“It’s the ruler of the Turtle clan . The ruler’s returned,” a Saint King from the alliance saw them and immediately cried out .
The two of them just happened to be Jian Chen and Tie Ta .
Tao Zhengtian’s eyes began to glare at them at that moment . He stared at them in interest as he sneered, “Ruler of the Turtle clan, you’ve finally returned . I’ve waited for you for several days already . ”
Jian Chen stared at Tao Zhengtian and the others who were blocking the main entrance of the of the Turtle clan with a sunken face . He then glanced over at the Turtle clan . He immediately let out a breath of relief . Although the Turtle clan had been reduced to a mess, there were no corpses or bloody marks . All of them had hidden in the Octoterra divine Hall .
Jian Chen’s face became filled with heavy killing intent at that moment . He had never thought that Tao Zhengtian would come and block the main entrance of the clan before he could even find him to settle their debt . If he had not left behind the divine hall, the entire clan would probably have been rinsed in blood .
“Tao Zhengtian, I was just about to go to your Tao family to completely settle our enmity . I never thought that you’d be so smart and obediently come to meet your maker,” Jian Chen growled .
Tao Zhengtian chuckled aloud, “Ruler of the Turtle clan, you overestimate yourself . I’m standing right here . I’d like to see how you kill me . ” He was confident . He was currently at the peak of the Eighth Heavenly Layer as a Saint King and infinitesimally close to the Ninth . He had gained a clear understanding of Jian Chen’s strength in the battle before, which was not enough to threaten him at all .
Jian Chen sneered, “Then I’ll show you I can kill you right here . ” Suddenly, a vast presence surged from Jian Chen . It crushed down on Tao Zhengtian with an unstoppable force .
Tao Zhengtian and the four other Saint Kings suddenly displayed different expressions . Jian Chen’s presence was just far too powerful . Even Tao Zhengtian, a peak Eighth Heavenly Layer Saint King, shivered inside . At that At that moment, he even gained the impression that he was standing before a Saint Emperor .
The five of them were no longer as composed as before . They all stood up in shock while disbelief plastered across their faces . Their hearts churned inside .
“Ruler of the Turtle clan, I’ve treated you with a lot of caution, but I’ve still underestimated you in the end . I never would have thought that your strength would have reached such a level in such a short amount of time . You’re no weaker than me . However, just that much strength is still wishful thinking if you want to kill me . If you don’t believe me, we can fight it out somewhere else . ” Tao Zhengtian no longer remained where he was after throwing that out . He immediately flew off into the distance with the divine hall, traveling extremely fast . He disappeared into the horizon in the blink of an eye .
The four other Saint Kings had entered the divine hall as quickly as they could, so Tao Zhengtian had taken them with him .
“Ruler of the Turtle clan, if you have the guts, then come!” Tao Zhengtian’s voice loudly rang out from afar .
Jian Chen moved . He used the Illusory Flash, causing his body to fuse with the surrounding space . He chased after Tao Zhengtian extremely quickly at a speed no slower than him .
Jian Chen’s understanding of the Illusory Flash had reached a new level in the Xuanhuang Microcosm . Coupled with his increase in strength, the speed he traveled when using the Illusory Flash had increased as well .
“Mysteries of War, Celestial Movement!” Tie Ta turned into a streak of golden light as he tailed behind Jian Chen .
