Chapter 3646: Pursuit Through Outer Space
After hearing Jiang Pingtian’s words that were layered with meaning, Jian Chen was immediately left surprised and uncertain, but he showed none of it on his face. He clasped his fist towards Jiang Pingtian and thanked him before leaving the city lord’s estate.
However, soon after he emerged, Jian Chen sensed the obscure senses of a soul locking onto him.
In the next moment, an old man silently appeared before Jian Chen.
He was the Wayless Immortal Exalt of the Immortal Feather sect!
“Chang Yang, you actually resigned from your post proactively. Looks like you’re planning on leaving the Observance Heaven City?” The Wayless Immortal Exalt’s eyes shone coldly as he squinted, forcing out a smile as he looked at Jian Chen.
Jian Chen smiled and said, “I’m only a Sixth Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor, yet I managed to make senior, an Immortal Exalt, wait arduously for over a millennia in the Observance Heaven City. It really does flatter me.”
“Immortal Exalts need to pay a five-coloured immortal crystal for each day they stay in the Observance Heaven City, yet senior has stayed for over a thousand years. Looks like senior really has paid quite the price these years.”
The Wayless Immortal Exalt’s gaze immediately turned cold. He sneered and said, “That’s nothing to our Immortal Feather sect. Instead, Chang Yang, you better worry about yourself. I’d like to see just how you leave the Observance Heaven City now!”
“Since senior wants to see how I leave the Observance Heaven City, I’ll do as you please.” Jian Chen sneered. He took a step and immediately vanished from the street. With just a few steps, he arrived at one of the city gates.
Soon after he arrived, the Wayless Immortal Exalt’s figure appeared as well. He stared at Jian Chen firmly with great killing intent, as well as a hint of desire and anticipation.
“You’re at the city gate. Why have you stopped? Don’t tell me you’re afraid and don’t plan on leaving?” The Wayless Immortal Exalt sneered.
“Don’t be careless. The Wayless Immortal Exalt is aware that you’re skilled in the Laws of Space, so he specially dispatched a great elder from the Immortal Feather sect. He is a Seventh Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor who has also comprehended the Laws of Space!” At this moment, Jiang Pingtian’s voice rang out in Jian Chen’s head.
Jiang Pingtian sat in the city lord’s estate. His gaze pierced through space and landed on Jian Chen.
“Doesn’t senior Jiang seem to care a little too much about me?” Jian Chen wondered to himself, but with the Divine Armour of Heavenflight and the mask from the Illusionary Daemon race, he was not afraid of being pursued by the Wayless Immortal Exalt.
He took a proud and bold step forwards, directly leaving the Observance Heaven City.
The rule that forbade fighting no longer applied to the two of them.
But in the next moment, Jian Chen suddenly vanished. He had already crossed billions of kilometres through the Laws of Space, appearing in outer space.
From his view, the Observance Heaven City had already been reduced to a piece of land floating in space.
At the same time, the space near Jian Chen twisted, and a middle-aged man in white silently appeared, chasing up to Jian Chen through the Laws of Space.
“Give up, Chang Yang. You can’t escape!” The middle-aged man stared at Jian Chen indifferently. His presence as a Seventh Heavenly Layer Immortal Emperor permeated the surroundings as he clutched a golden rope in his hand.
As he said that, the rope in his hand shone brilliantly and shot towards Jian Chen like a bolt of lightning.
Jian Chen could clearly sense an extremely great restraining force from the rope.
As the rope burst through the space there, the Laws of Space radiated outwards, interfering with the surroundings in an attempt to suppress Jian Chen’s control of the space.
Jian Chen sneered. His Laws of Space originated from the beast soul of the Spatial Insect Emperor. When he inherited the Spatial Insect Emperor’s comprehension, he also inherited its natural compatibility with space.
As a result, he wielded the Ways of Space like it was second instinct. The man’s attempt to interfere with his control over space was a waste of effort.
Jian Chen vanished once again.
“Hmm?” When he saw how Jian Chen was actually completely unaffected, the middle-aged man immediately became slightly surprised.
The Wayless Immortal Exalt appeared. He stood by the middle-aged man’s side and stared in the direction that Jian Chen had left in with a sunken gaze. He said coldly, “Go, chase after him. You can’t let this person escape. The treasure he possesses that can instantly heal him is probably anything but ordinary. The life energy it contains is extremely tremendous. We have to obtain it.”
“Yes, ancestor!” the middle-aged man answered politely and immediately chased after him with the Laws of Space.
After the middle-aged man vanished, the Wayless Immortal Exalt took out another jade slip. After a moment of hesitation, he crushed it and said sternly at the same time, “Nun of Golden Jade, it’s time for you to take action.”
A few seconds later, a middle-aged woman in the robes of a daoist priest with a fly-whisk in her hand silently appeared. Her appearance was nothing special, such that she seemed extremely ordinary, but her presence was something else. She seemed like she had transcended the world.
Her strength had already reached the Fourth Heavenly Layer of Immortal Exalt!
“For a mere Immortal Emperor, do you really plan on using up this favour, Wayless?” The middle-aged daoist nun furrowed her brows slightly as if she believed it was simply overkill for the Wayless Immortal Exalt to use up his favour with her for a Immortal Emperor.
“This person is not simple. He probably possesses a secret treasure that contains tremendous amounts of life energy. No matter how severe his injuries are, he can recover in an extremely short amount of time. He’s basically unkillable. Even Immortal Exalt Wei Qi from the Observance Heaven City could not kill him, which was why I was forced to ask you to take action. Let’s combine our strength and kill him together,” said the Wayless Immortal Exalt.
“It can make an Immortal Emperor almost unkillable? Is there really a treasure like that?” The Nun of Golden Jade was surprised. Clearly, she was unaware of what had happened in the Observance Heaven City.
“Why would I lie, given who I am? However, I wonder just how many times that treasure can heal him. However, no matter how many times it can heal him, I’m very interested in it,” said the Wayless Immortal Exalt. It was no longer just a matter of Jian Chen’s personal grievances with the Immortal Feather sect. The most important factor behind why he still targeted Jian Chen was because the Wayless Immortal Exalt had become interested in his treasure.
“If that’s the case, then we’ll chase after him. He might only be an Immortal Emperor, but he’s comprehended the Laws of Space. If we waste too much time, we’ll struggle to catch up to him,” said the Nun of Golden Jade before vanishing into the sea of stars with the Wayless Immortal Exalt.
The two Immortal Exalts raced through outer space at full speed. They moved extremely quickly, basically crossing the distance of a galaxy with each passing second.
But despite that, they still struggled to catch up to the two Immortal Emperors that had comprehended the Laws of Space in a short amount of time.
Actually, Jian Chen and the Immortal Emperor from the Immortal Feather sect had already left the range of the senses of an Immortal Exalt’s soul. If it were not for the fact that the Wayless Immortal Exalt knew the great elder’s presence very well, they probably would have lost track of Jian Chen a long time ago.
