Chaotic Sword God - Chapter 1328
Chapter 1328: Fighting a Saint Emperor
Jian Chen smiled sarcastically . He glanced back at the boundary behind him and calmly said, “Tao Zhengtian, aren’t you celebrating a little too early? It’s still rather difficult to determine today’s outcome . ”
Tao Zhengtian stopped and did not continue running . However, he remained hidden within the divine hall . He believed that Jian Chen could do nothing to him no matter what, causing him to chuckle out loud . “Jian Chen . you’re overconfident . Do you really think that you can act as you wish just because your strength has abruptly increased? I admit that I am no longer your opponent, but in this vast sea realm, who knows how many people are more powerful than me? Obviously, there are quite a few experts that can kill you . As of now, you are at the gates of death . No one can save you . ”
As soon as Tao Zhengtian finished speaking, the energy of the world in the surroundings suddenly became violent as if it had been listening to his speech . A supreme force filled the surroundings . It became more and more powerful and denser and denser, causing the air to shake . Vaguely enough, it seemed to let out the deep, angry growl of a serpent dragon .
But Jian Chen ignored everything, as if he could not sense the changes occurring around him at all . Only Tie Ta, who stood beside him, stared at the sky in interest . He was tempted to take it on . His eyes were brimming with powerful battle intent . The war god’s blood within him boiled as his body shone with a dazzling golden light .
“What happens to me is not for you to decide . However, this barrier has already determined that you will die today for sure, Tao Zhengtian,” Jian Chen sneered .
Tao Zhengtian chuckled because of his rage and bellowed, “Jian Chen, your arrogance and ignorance has surpassed everything I was expecting from you . I’m right here, so if you have the power, come and take my life . If you can’t do that today, I’ll fill your Turtle clan with corpses and make them bleed so much that their blood will form rivers . ”
Heavy killing intent appeared in Jian Chen’s eyes . He coldly said, “Tao Zhengtian, you will never get that chance . Even if the hall master of the Serpent God Hall is protecting you, I will kill you . No one can save you . ”
With that, the powerful force around Jian Chen immediately became even more violent . Endless amounts of energy of the world gathered from the surroundings before condensing into a figure in the blink of an eye . The figure was a wide-chested, burly, middle-aged man . His face was blurry and obscured . As he stood there, he gave off an extremely powerful presence, like a monarch ruling the world .
“Esteemed hall master, please kill Jian Chen and eliminate any future threats . ” Tao Zhengtian also discovered the figure completely condensed from energy in the sky while he remained in the divine hall, so he immediately made a request in excitement .
It was a clone condensed by the hall master of the Serpent God Hall by controlling the energy of the world using his mind . The hall master did not need to act personally to deal with Jian Chen since he was not even at the Great Perfection of Saint King . To the hall master, just a clone would be enough to deal with any opponents below Saint Emperor Emperor because he was a Saint Emperor, and one that had been a Saint Emperor for many years . He had made a corresponding amount of progress in the realm of cultivation as well .
“Ruler of the Turtle clan, I like to see how you kill people before me,” said the clone of the hall master . His voice was loud and clear, booming out like rolling thunder, like a serpent dragon’s roar . Afterward, he pointed his finger at Jian Chen . It elongated and thickened into a pillar of energy as it shot toward Jian Chen . The energy in the surroundings constantly surged into his finger, making the pillar more and more powerful . The great force of a Saint Emperor was hidden inside the attack .
Jian Chen showed no fear . He taunted, “Hall master, just a clone of yours does not possess the ability to stop me . It’s better if you come personally . ” Suddenly, Jian Chen’s presence underwent a great change . Like a drawn sword, he glowed brighter . He had already reached Sword Origin, so his entire body seemed to have transformed into a sharp sword . He then collided with the energy the hall master had shot over with an unstoppable force . An extremely bright white light appeared around him, wrapping around him while giving off surging sword Qi .
The sword Qi caught the hall master’s clone by surprise . It was just far too powerful and far too abnormal . He had lived for countless years and read many secret records, so he was extremely knowledgeable, but he had never seen such sharp sword Qi .
The sword Qi Jian Chen used after reaching Sword Origin was no longer condensed from energy after comprehending the Way of the Sword . Instead, Instead, it was a way, a method to use laws .
The clone’s attack failed to harm Jian Chen at all . Jian Chen swiftly broke through the energy attack like a sword, having approached the hall master . Sword Qi condensed in his hand as he stabbed at the clone’s head . A sliver of the hall master’s soul was there, so once that sliver was wiped out, the energy used to condense the clone would disperse .
The hall master was unable to remain as calm as before . His facial expression greatly changed as a hint of disbelief appeared in his eyes . He had never thought that Jian Chen would have become so powerful already .
The hall master reacted extremely quickly despite his shock . During a crucial moment, he retreated to several hundred meters away as if he had teleported, avoiding Jian Chen’s fatal attack . Although he was just a clone, if the soul hidden within the clone was destroyed, he would still suffer an unimaginable injury .
Even to Saint Emperors, injuries of the soul would still be fatal . They were the most difficult to recover from .
Jian Chen seemed to have expected the clone of the hall master to flee long ago, so he immediately used Illusory Flash . He left behind a trail of blurs as he chased after the hall master like he was teleporting as well . With a white flash, the powerful sword Qi in his hand stabbed into the clone’s head .
This time, the hall master’s clone failed to dodge in time . His head was pierced and most of his soul was immediately obliterated . Only a small fragment was left to flee into the distance .
Jian Chen extended a finger and shot a sword Qi a finger wide at the wide at the fragment of the soul, finishing it off as well .
At the same time, a miserable cry rang through the central divine hall within the territory of the Serpent God Hall . Closely following it was a tremendous presence that radiated out of the divine hall, like a slumbering primordial beast had awakened . It shook the entire divine hall .
A figure quickly charged out of the divine hall, storming off into the distance with a supreme presence . It vanished in a single moment, moving extremely fast .
“It’s the esteemed hall master . The hall master has never appeared personally over the past few hundred years . He’s always been in seclusion…”
“That miserable cry seems to have come from the hall master . What’s happened to the great hall master? Has something gone wrong with his cultivation?”
“Just what has happened to the hall master? Why has he left in such a rage with such powerful killing intent? Has someone angered him?”
The various elders and emissaries discussed the situation within the divine hall . They felt utterly confused and puzzled . Even the few esteemed hall elders did not have an answer .
“I- impossible . ” Tao Zhengtian and the four other Saint Kings of the alliance personally witness this exchange . All of them became stunned . They were filled with disbelief .
A clone of the hall master had actually been slain in such an easy fashion . This was an extremely terrifying matter to them .
After all, the hall master was a Saint Emperor . A being who possessed supreme strength . Not to mention the fact that the hall master of the Serpent God Hall was quite accomplished as a Saint Emperor, just a clone of his was enough to easily slay Saint Kings at Great Perfection .
