Fury Towards The Burning Heaven - Chapter 1132
Chapter 1132: Old Zhan
The Battle Thearch’s body trembled as he gritted his teeth and yelled. His face was full of regret, regretting the erroneous decision that he had made.
He was very clear of something. Jiang Yi was decisive and resolute; there was no turning back the situation today. The Battle Thearch had no choice but to shout, “Open the Great Thearch Formation! All are to evacuate separately! Jiang Yi, if you are a man, you will come after me—”
The Battle Thearch finished shouting and started chasing after the Mystic Divine Palace. He was ready to attack the Mystic Divine Palace with everything he got. Even if he could not break through its defenses, he wanted to stop Jiang Yi from his slaughtering. The Battle Thearch was also ready to die in the Mystic Thearch City. Since his home had been destroyed and that many of his clansmen had died, he had no face to run away; he was set on making the Mystic Thearch City his burial ground.
However, Jiang Yi was not going to give him this opportunity!
The Mystic Divine Palace became a devilish black light and ignored the attacks from the Battle Thearch. It continued to kill the Zhan Clan’s disciples. A blood mist had formed in the sky above the Mystic Thearch City. A nauseous stench of blood also permeated the entire city.
The Great Thearch Formation was withdrawn. Many Zhan Clan disciples started fleeing in all directions. The North Thearch scanned the situation, and with a wave of his hand brought his remaining Demigods and fled into the distance. The Evil Thearch and Beast Thearch exchanged glances as the Evil Thearch transmitted a message to the North Thearch: “Wu Shang, are we just going to let this matter rest? After Jiang Yi has razed the Mystic Thearch City, your North Thearch City would be next; and then my Evil Thearch City…”
The North Thearch turned for a moment far away and smiled coldly, transmitting: “As long as Jiang Yi dares to come to the North Thearch City, I will not let him leave. Rest assured… Jiang Yi will not be able to go on a rampage for all. I will send messages to you all later on. You guys should retreat, too. There is no point in staying here!”
The Evil Thearch and Beast Thearch nodded as they growled. There was indeed no point left in staying here; they would only continue to lose their face. The Mystic Divine Palace could use Heaven Evasion, and without any special abilities, there was no way of breaking the Mystic Divine Palace’s defenses as well. They also could not find a way to kill Jiang Yi. They would only continue to be humiliated if they stayed.
The North Thearch, Evil Thearch, and Beast Thearch brought their men and flew separately away into the distance. Jiang Yi did not stop them. The three Thearchs’ speed was too fast; he could not catch them.
The most important thing was—Jiang Yi had discovered a problem. The Mystic Divine Palace’s restrictions could easily crack open the divine shields of six-star Demigods but had some problems with seven-star Demigods; he had not tried on eight-star martial experts yet. If he could not break the divine shields of eight-star martial experts, people would soon be able to find out the limits of his attacks. Not chasing after eight- or nine-star martial experts at this moment could actually help to create a sense of ambiguity to his advantage.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
The sky was filled with human shadows. Tens of thousands of Zhan Clan martial artists were fleeing everywhere. However, they fled outside the Mystic Thearch City but realized they didn’t know where to go. The Zhan Clan had only one city and did not have other territories. If the Mystic Thearch City was destroyed—no matter how big the world was, where could the Zhan Clan disciples go to stay?
They were after all disciples of the Nine Thearch Clans, of the strongest clan. If they were vagabonds moving about from place to place like dogs, they might as well go and die! The disciple of the Nine Thearch Clans were proud and had dignity. They could not lose their face and also could not bear to leave this place. Hence, many chose to hide in the surroundings of the Mystic Thearch City, hoping for a miracle to happen.
No miracles occurred and the slaughter continued. A few minutes later, a Heaven and Earth Anomaly appeared.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The winds and clouds suddenly surged and gathered in the sky as from all directions heaven and earth essence force congregated above the Mystic Thearch City. Following that, three stars in the nine heavens above lit up and three rays of divine light shot down, right into a small castle in the Battle Thearch Castle.
“Uh? A disciple had broken through to become a Demigod now?”
The Battle Thearch stopped flying about crazily for a moment. Many Zhan Clan martial experts were also astounded. It was common for someone to break through the Demigod Realm, but at this point in time—even if someone became a Demigod, he would die also. The timing was unfortunate.
A black shadow flew out from that small castle, and a young man shot up mid-air. His face was very handsome; though his skin was slightly dark. He had obviously been in seclusion and had not known what had happened outside. He had only just flown out after hearing the entire city in an uproar.
“It’s actually him?”
The Battle Thearch was in a daze as one of the Demigods near him shouted out, astonished, “This disciple from another lineage is incredibly gifted. He had only been baptized in the Battle Soul Pond two years ago and had already become a Demigod? He is even more gifted than Tianlei! Clan Head, you should command him to leave quickly; he is the future hope of our clan.”
The Battle Thearch’s eyes lit up as he stared at the dark young man and sent a voice transmission: “Lad, leave towards the south immediately and head to the Fu Village five thousand kilometers away. You have to remember to stay alive no matter what and continue cultivating, so that you would be of great help to the Zhan Clan and help us rise again in the future.”
The Battle Thearch’s voice transmission had just ended when the Mystic Divine Palace suddenly made a turn and was flying frantically towards that youth. The Battle Thearch and all the Demigods’ faces changed instantly. The Battle Thearch shouted, “Stop Jiang Yi! Lad, hurry up and flee—”
The young man paused for a moment, his face full of shock. Not only did he not flee, but he also looked curiously towards the Mystic Divine Palace. The Mystic Divine Palace had also stopped mid-air as it flashed, and a phantom image appeared in the sky. Jiang Yi looked at the dark young man, his expression pained, and said, “Big Brother Wushuang, it has been a few years. I did not expect us to meet under such circumstances.”
“Big Brother Wushuang?”
The Battle Thearch and company that had rushed towards the Mystic Divine Palace were all shocked. This disciple from a separate lineage was indeed called Zhan Wushuang. Jiang Yi actually was calling him Big Brother Wushuang?
This dark young man was indeed Zhan Wushuang. He took a few looks at Jiang Yi, the city full of corpses, and then at the Battle Thearch and the Zhan Clan elders. He then seemed to understand something. He smiled bitterly and said, “Jiang Yi, you are becoming more and more brazen. You actually caused such a huge commotion this time. What enmity do you have with the Zhan Clan? Can we bury the hatchet on my account?”
Countless Zhan Clan disciples’ eyes lit up as the Battle Thearch and company also looked narrowly at Jiang Yi. Jiang Yi was so depraved, inhumane, and decisive. When he was mad, even the gods would not be able to stop him. One word from Zhan Wushuang would stop him from killing?
Jiang Yi smiled lightly and said something that astounded the entire city: “Since Big Brother Wushuang’s bloodline is from the Zhan Clan, today’s matters can be considered a misunderstanding. My apologies, Big Brother Wushuang. I really did not know about this. Old Zhan, why did you not say earlier either? Now, we have attacked people on our own side. How about this, Old Zhan? You can demand something from me; I’ll compensate the Zhan Clan for your losses. This matter is so embarrassing…”
The whole place became dead silent. Many people exchanged stares at a lost at what was to be done.
The Yin Thearch, the Sword Thearch, and everyone else outside were equally stunned. Jiang Yi’s attitude had changed too quickly. He was just slaughtering the Zhan Clan’s disciples a moment ago, leaving the city full of corpses and stained full of blood. However, because of one person’s word, he had started to call the Battle Thearch ‘Old Zhan’ and was even talking about giving reparations.
Zhan Wushuang laughed bitterly, but it seemed as if he did not really put this matter to heart. In his heart, this brother of his was more important that his blood ties with the Zhan Clan. That Jiang Yi was willing to give him so much face, Zhan Wushuang was already very grateful. Zhan Wushuang did not have much attachments to the Zhan Clan. Even if Jiang Yi had insisted on continuing in his attacks, Zhan Wushuang would most probably have stood with Jiang Yi and fought the Zhan Clan.
Zhan Wushuang’s gaze turned and looked at the Battle Thearch, saying, “Clan Head, since Jiang Yi knows he was wrong, could you give him a chance? Can I represent the Zhan Clan and go and discuss the matter of compensation with him?”
Jiang Yi also nodded, smiled, and said, “Yes, Old Zhan. Young people make mistakes all the time. Please give me a chance; shall we shake hands and make peace? I guarantee that your clan will be pleased. Since we are friends, continuing with this fight will affect the peace.”
