Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 719
Jiang Chen's speed was fast. Profound patterns formed under his feet as he stepped, the spatial shift and nine phantom wolves were casted, leaving an afterimage behind. His real body had already moved to the other side. The cold sword of the assassin pierced through his afterimage, but didn't do any harm to Jiang Chen.
In a moment, he flashed to avoid the attack, the Heavenly Saint Sword was already in his hand, piercing forward. The person in the dark was also fast, the long sword clashed with the Heavenly Saint Sword, creating a big fiery spark, leaving a big line of rift on the spatial zone.
After the powerful collision, a dark silhouette rushed out of the sky and stood opposite of Jiang Chen. This man's figure was tall and his face was covered with a dark cloth. His eyes was like a poisonous snake that would give people chills. His whole body emitted a murderous aura that had integrated into his bones, he didn't require any deliberation to release them. The murderous aura he emitted gave off a chill-stinging sensation.
’’It's just a matter of time before I eliminate the Dark Shadow Organization.’’
Jiang Chen gritted his teeth and said. He really despised the people of the Dark Shadow. They had been challenging his patience every time. This assassination organization was like a dog skin plaster that was stuck on you and would never drop. This was already the third time, and now, a powerful Ninth Grade Combat Emperor assassin appeared. They hid perfectly well, and then, they would take your life without you knowing. If Jiang Chen's situation was replaced by another man, he would have died earlier to the sword of the assassin.
This assassin was even more terrifying than the previous assassins. To ensure that his assassination went smoothly, this black-clothed man used a male lion to block their path, to distract their attention, and then perform his assassination. Such a combination would definitely kill the target, but unfortunately, his target was Jiang Chen.
’’Jiang Chen, you are undeniably powerful. You are the first Fifth Grade Combat Emperor who successfully avoided my attack. No wonder our assassination attempts failed time and time again, but I'm afraid that you will have to die today.’’
The assassin raised his long sword and pointed it at Jiang Chen. Despite him failing his first assassination attempt, it didn't diminish his confidence. He absolutely didn't believe that a mere Fifth Grade Combat Emperor had the capability to stop him. If this was true, he couldn't continue his path in the Dark Shadow anymore.
’’You can't kill me. Your fate will be the same as the previous two, and that is to be killed by me.’’
Jiang Chen's Qi fluctuated and turned into a light ray. He thrusted his Heavenly Saint Sword at the assassin. He was very strong for a Ninth Grade Combat Emperor. This was also the perfect time for Jiang Chen to test his true strength by going all out in his attack.
On the other side, Nangong Wentian and the other two were besieging the ferocious beast. Even an aggressive beast had shown its inferiority and lost the advantage. It seemed that it wouldn't take long before it was completely defeated or even killed by them.
Both of their swords clashed more than ten times, signifying that their attacks were equally matched. The assassin's sword was fast but Jiang Chen's sword was faster. It was a battle between a ninth grade and a fifth grade but nobody knew who got the upper hand. Such a battle rendered the assassin feeling aggrieved.
’’He is only a mere Fifth Grade Combat Emperor, how can he be this hard to kill?’’
The assassin was feeling depressed. He finally knew why the organization wanted him to deal with a Fifth Grade Combat Emperor. This Fifth Grade Combat Emperor couldn't be dealt with by another Fifth Grade Combat Emperor.
Jiang Chen had the great soul derivation technique. So, the assassin can't hurt him no matter how powerful or untraceable the assassin might be. The both of them had exchanged hundreds of blows but the result was the same, it was a draw. On the other side, the male lion failed to defend against their besieging attacks and began to wail. Big Yellow had torn a piece of flesh from the male lion's body using his sharp teeth. Nangong Wentian and Guo Shao Fei had left quite a few wounds on its body.
’’Ultimate assassination sword art.’’
That assassin couldn't endure it any longer. This situation was completely out of his anticipation. He stopped all of his useless attack and performed his proudest, ultimate assassination sword art. His entire body fused with his sword, becoming one entity. The sword and him formed a light ray and charged at Jiang Chen after a swoosh.
Jiang Chen made a cold humph. The Heavenly Saint Sword rippled and slashed, countless numbers of swords instantaneously appeared. Each sword turned into a brilliant light, shrouding the assassin.
*Keng* *Keng* *Keng*
The light of sword had blanketed the entire sky. No matter how hard the assassin tried, he still couldn't break through Jiang Chen's defence. His ultimate assassination sword art had ended up in failure.
The assassin saw no chance of killing his prey. He barked at the male lion and turned to leave. Unfortunately, the male lion had already been surrounded tightly, rendering any attempts of escaping futile.
’’Want to flee? Too late. Ah Da.’’
Jiang Chen bellowed. Ah Da flew out from the spatial ring. A powerful dark and death Qi instantly filled the air above. Ah Da let out a howl and his terrifying sharp claw clawed forward. The assassin was confined by Ah Da's claw, giving him no chance to escape.
’’What? What is this monster?’’
The assassin's face changed instantly. He hadn't thought that Jiang Chen actually had such a technique. This powerful human skeleton was at least of Minor Saint grade, he couldn't resist its power.
At this moment, the male lion let out a wail, totally powerless in front of them. Jiang Chen slashed the male lion with his Heavenly Saint Sword, immediately cutting off its head. A brilliant demon soul shot out of the broken head. Jiang Chen's long sword poked it and brought it to his hand.
After killing the beast, he looked at the restrained assassin and said coldly, ’’Tell me, where is your nearest stronghold?’’
Jiang Chen was angered this time. He had to teach the Dark Shadow a lesson to let them know that getting rid of him was an extremely foolish act. He had fought with this organization before and knew that it was consisted of many strongholds. He had prepared to eliminate one of the strongholds, etching the feeling of pain into the Dark Shadow.
’’Jiang Chen, I have fallen into your hands. It is up to you to skin me alive or kill me, but I won't say a thing.’’
The assassin was obstinate.
’’I know that the assassins of the Dark Shadow are not afraid of death, but I don't know whether you fear the condition of being dead while staying alive. I can tell you that this thing standing in front of you is a powerful dark soul, it has death Qi all over it. You can choose not to talk but I will let it rip open your chest, instilling the death Qi into your heart and internal organs. Then, open up your brain and pump the death Qi into your conscious mind, letting you feel the most horrendous torture in the world, and I can assure you that you won't die. I still have a lot of time, I want to see how long can you endure it.’’
Jiang Chen revealed a cold smirk. At this moment, his smile was just like the smile of a devil king, instilling fear in people.
After hearing Jiang Chen's warning. The assassin's forehead began to exude sweat. This dark soul was just too terrifying. Jiang Chen doesn't seem like he was joking.
’’Jiang Chen, the will of a Dark Shadow assassins is beyond your imagination.’’
The assassin was as obstinate as before.
Jiang Chen shouted and one of Ah Da's claw pierced into the assassin's body with a 'Pu Chi' sound.
