Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 569
The Awakening of Big Yellow
Another regular chapter of the week. Enjoy reading!
’’Too cruel... Ferghana Stallion died? This is unbelievable! Invincible Nie issued the warrant personally. This is the first time in history this has happened. Is it true that Jiang Chen has that kind of combat power?’’
’’This isn't possible, there has to be something that's as yet undiscovered. Jiang Chen could get rid of an eighth grade combat king warrior, but his level of wasn't enough to fight against a ninth grade demon king beast.’’
’’Too brutal...the night before last was a bloody massacre in Chaotic Ocean. Jiang Chen was like a Devil King, he didn't leave any Asura Palace disciples alive. The scene was extreme.’’
’’The intensity of this convulsion in Liang Province is greater than the last one. Jiang Chen is practically the Devil King of Chaotic Ocean. He had disappeared for a few months, his latest appearance in the province was good enough to summon a new pattern of storm, so any following days are unlikely to be peaceful.’’
Astonishment was the dominant emotion in people's heads. It created an awkward atmosphere in the Liang Province. The Devil Religion was still the most peaceful among all the four major powers. The other three major powers were busying finding traces of Jiang Chen and the monk, but the results were all disappointing. The ultimate arrest for Jiang Chen was an unprecedented act in the history of Invincible Sect.
Who could have thought that the three of them were hiding in the ruin filled lands of Heavenhawk Island while the storm raged elsewhere?
Meanwhile, in the cave of Heavenhawk island, the three friends had no clue about the situations that were happening outside. The three's focus had been put on Big Yellow. Big Yellow's robust body was lying on the ground. There was a big, golden cocoon wrapped its body. It was covered with symbols and patterns that Jiang Chen couldn't understand.
Over the course of the day, Big Yellow's status was changing constantly. Numerous leases of live resurfaced, the clean golden fur on the surface of his body dazzled their eyes, and his head was giving out golden radiance as if he was going to be awake very soon.
Strange enough, many black threads were continuously emerging from Big Yellow's internal body. Tyrant and Tan Lang recognized those threads, they were the lethal poison absorbed by the blood essence of Ferghana Stallion. At first, they were very afraid that this poison would harm Big Yellow's body, but all those feelings had since vanished.
Those were deadly poisons that came out of the body. It was unbelievable that his body could remove these harmful substances on its own. The poisons would emerge from Big Yellow's body, and slowly disperse and vanish into thin air.
’’Amazing... His body is terrifying! It can excrete deadly poisons with ease. His body is extraordinary, a normal dragon-horse beast would not have this ability.’’
Tyrant gave voice to his respect for Big Yellow. To anyone, dark poisonous clam's poison was death. Once one came into contact with the poison, one would have to find a way to get rid of it. For Big Yellow, however, his body could detoxify all the poisonous blood essence and expel them out of his body through metamorphosis when he was still SLEEPING...
’’Little Chen. You and Tyrant stay here to take care of Big Yellow. I will go out to acquire the latest information out there.’’
Tan Lang said, ’’Ferghana Stallion is killed, Invincible Nie would be extremely furious now. I have no idea whether the battle in Gorge Island has ended. I'm also pretty sure the Asura Palace is coming for us. I think it is better for us to be informed of the latest happenings as soon as possible. I will travel with great caution.’’
When they heard this, Jiang Chen and Tyrant nodded in agreement. Tan Lang was being reasonable. Hiding in the desert island wouldn't bring them any latest news, letting one person go out and scout out some information could actually keep them updated. Among the three, Tan Lang was the most suitable candidate;Jiang Chen couldn't afford to leave as Big Yellow was undergoing a vital process in his metamorphosis. Jiang Chen had to stay to ensure the process proceeded smoothly. Tyrant, the monk, wasn't a good choice because he could be recognized by a lot of people. Tan Lang was different. He was very familiar with Liang Province, he knew the way to disguise himself, and his new identity would not be noticed by anyone.
’’I understand, but you have to be careful. Inform be immediately once you sense any danger coming.’’
Jiang Chen took out the spiritual message talisman he had refined himself, and put it on Tan Lang's palm. If Tan Lang faced any danger, he could use it to inform Jiang Chen.
Tan Lang received the spiritual message talisman and walked out of the cave. After looking around for a moment, he left Heavenhawk Island and was on his way to the Chaotic Ocean.
Not long after Tan Lang left, another surprising thing happened. Big changes happened on Big Yellow again. His body trembled. It was a pleasant and surprising incident for the two of them.
’’Look like he is waking up,’’ Tyrant said.
’’It is about time...’’
Jiang Chen smiled and nodded his head. With Big Yellow's natural ability, it should be about time for him to wake up.
Big Yellow's skin began to glow. The rippling radiance became stronger and stronger over several minutes. The sound of cracking rang out continuously as the cracks shot across the golden cocoon.
Once the cracks covered enough of the cocoon's surface, it exploded. The cocoon fragmented and collapsed. Big Yellow opened his sparkling eyes. Two beams of light shot out of eyes like a double-edged sword.
After that, Big Yellow breathed a sigh of relief and sat up. He could feel the powerful energy trying to explode in his body. It was like a vast ocean trying to find a vent to flow out its excess volume.
Big Yellow raised his head with pride and roared insanely. Layers of sound waves escaped from his mouth. They vibrated all the loose things in the cave. Fortunately, Jiang Chen had prepared for this. He had sealed the entire cave with a spell. Had he not done so, their whereabouts would now have been revealed. It felt like the vibrations would collapse the cave.
Tyrant gave his thumbs up to Jiang Chen. He admired his foresight, how he could anticipate that Big Yellow would be bursting with so much energy upon his awakening. This was just a normal raor. If he had used the Spirit Kill divine Roar, it would not have been this tame. Given this possible outcome, Jiang Chen had to be mindful and well-prepared.
Big Yellow had awoken, but the amazing changes didn't stop. The booming sounds sounded continuously. It was like his body was sounding the battle drums. It was due to the impact of the energy contained within his body, and the effect of the metamorphosis of his blood and veins. The combination of these two elements caused Big Yellow's qi to rise unabatedly. In the blink of an eye, he had reached third grade demon king.
This was merely the beginning. Jiang Chen and his companion were dazzled by it. Under their gaze, Big Yellow's level rose smoothly and rapidly. In a minute amount time, he reached peak third grade demon king. Soon after a light cracking could be heard once more;he had broken through the fourth grade as well!
Kacha! Fifth grade demon king.
Kacha! Sixth grade demon king.
Kacha! Seventh grade demon king.
In just half an hour, Big Yellow's level broke all the way through to the seventh grade smoothly. His momentum slowed at this point.
Tyrant sighed with relief. His forehead was covered with sweat. The speed with which Big Yellow had broken through was simply too frightening. He had broken through from third grade demon king to seventh grade demon king in such a short amount time. This was completely unbelievable. If he hadn't witnessed this himself, he would not believe it even if his life was threatened.
To him, it was a blessing that Big Yellow's momentum largely dissipated at this point. If he had broken through to the eighth grade, Tyrant was afraid he would have fainted and died on the spot. Jiang Chen's improvement from first grade to fourth grade back in the Western Region was already too much for him to bare. Big Yellow just made everything worse.
In the end, Big Yellow didn't break through to eighth grade demon king, its energy stopped at the peak of seventh grade demon king. It wasn't too far off the eighth grade. They believed that Big Yellow could reach that level in no time.
It was completely unbelievable, and yet just as undeniable. The fast increase was assisted by the blood essence and demon spirit of a ninth grade demon king. Not only that, Thunder Dragon Nine Solar pill and metamorphosis of blood and veins were the other two important elements. If Big Yellow could not achieve this result, his ability would be far inferior to what was expected.
The energy flowed out of Big Yellow's body. Under his control, all of it was absorbed back into his body. He cooled down and returned to his original state. The cave was peaceful once more.
By the look of Big Yellow, not much had changed. The only overt difference was that his dragon horn had grown bigger. The horn was the identifying characteristic a dragon horse beast. Even though he had achieved seventh grade demon king status and the dragon horns, he still looked like a hound.
Big Yellow opened his eyes. The first thing he saw was Jiang Chen and Tyrant. He opened his mouth to speak.
’’Wakaka, you two bastards didn't die. Of course, the life and death of the two of you wasn't my concern. What I am concerned about is that I am still alive, haha,’’ Big Yellow laughed loudly.
His words would have been offensive, but when Jiang Chen was able to hear his voice again, he felt a sense of familiarity.
’’This hound's words aren't friendly at all,’’ Tyrant said with a serious aura.
’’Bastard monk, you still want to act serious in front of me? Do you believe that I won't kick your ass easily? You know, I am a seventh grade demon king warrior now.’’
When Big Yellow spoke, his eyes stared directly at Tyrant's butt.
’’Damn it, you are still an annoying stupid dog.’’
Tyrant scolded, but he would not want a fight to happen between him and Big Yellow as the hound possessed the strength of a seventh grade demon king. His evil ability could even take down a ninth grade combat king. He wasn't stupid enough to actively seek out his own suffering.
’’Haha...’’ Jiang Chen laughed happily.
The teasing between the two of them reminded him of Cold Yan and Wen Tian. It was the time in the East Continent, they enjoyed themselves very much when they were together. In the God Continent, he had not seen them once the space channel was broken. Another of Jiang Chen friends' - Wu Zhu - whereabouts was still unknown, she came to God Continent with Jiang Chen in search of her mother, but had no clue of the chaos in the area. Her gentle nature would cause her a lot of unnecessary troubles.
