Unveiling the Truth
Seeing the elders and disciples of Skycloud Pavilion arriving on the scene, Jiang Chen smiled slightly. This was just what he wanted. He was going to unveil the true colors of Tian Muyun in front of everyone, so that he would have a reason to eliminate this menace and help him lay the foundation before taking control of Skycloud Pavilion.
Daoist Yufeng appeared along with the other senior elders. There was no way they wouldn’t appear given such a huge commotion. Most of these people had followed Ouyang He from the very beginning. As for the followers of Tian Muyun, most of them were people in Law Enforcement Hall and they had already been destroyed by Jiang Chen.
“Jiang Chen, we are all of the same sect. Do you really have to turn it into a life-or-death battle?”
Daoist Yufeng said with a sympathizing look. He had a divine and sage-like demeanor. He had put all his heart and soul into Skycloud Pavilion. Currently, Skycloud Pavilion had turned restless. Jiang Chen’s declaration of battle against the Pavilion Master gave him an indescribable heartache.
Although he wasn’t the person in charge of Skycloud Pavilion, he had seen how Skycloud Pavilion grew from scratch. Like Ouyang He, he had regarded Skycloud Pavilion as his own child. It was the fruit of their efforts.
“Daoist Yufeng, I’ll explain everything the momentTian Muyun arrives.”
Jiang Chen held his fists at Daoist Yufeng. He had very high respect for this elder.
“What do you want to explain?”
Just as Jiang Chen’s words faded, another powerful momentum flew over from the interior of Skycloud Pavilion. Who could it be if it wasn’t Tian Muyun?!
“Tian Muyun, you sure have advanced to Immortal King. Good, not bad.” Jiang Chen’s eyes fell upon Tian Muyun.
Sure enough, this bastard had advanced to the Immortal King realm just like what Jiang Chen had predicted. This would make the battle more interesting. If Tian Muyun is still a half-step Immortal King, such a battle would be somewhat pointless.
“Jiang Chen, I have to say that you have too much audacity to show up again. Also, the Evil Lord should have come along with you right? Ask him to reveal himself. Today, I will kill the two of you in front of everyone so that I can regain the face that I have lost that day.”
Tian Muyun made no attempt to hide his killing intent as he spoke. He swept around with his divine sense and found no trace of Yang Bufan. This raised some doubts in him.
“Humph! I, alone, am enough to kill you. If the Evil Lord is here, I’m afraid you will have to kneel and beg for mercy instantly.”
Jiang Chen harrumphed coldly. What he said wasn’t a lie. Given Yang Bufan’s current cultivation base, Tian Muyun could not match Yang Bufan. If Yang Bufan was really here to kill Tian Muyun, Tian Muyun would have no other choice other than to beg for his life.
“Hubris! Jiang Chen, it seems like you still don’t know the power of an Immortal King. Do you think that after making some advancements in your cultivation base made you capable enough to fight me? Today, I will make you die on the battle platform, after that, I will go to Evil Abyss and kill that Evil Lord. I, Tian Muyun, am the true king of One-Line-Sky.”
Tian Muyun’s momentum fluctuated wildly. With a leap, he reached the battle platform, seemingly about to launch a strike at Jiang Chen.
“Wait a minute.” Jiang Chen clamored abruptly.
“What? Are you scared?” Tian Muyun sneered.
“Scared? If I was scared, I wouldn’t be here today. But before fighting, I would like to unveil some ugly secret of yours. I have come today to eradicate the menace of Skycloud Pavilion.”
Jiang Chen’s voice was apparently louder than before. Of all the people, only Tian Muyun himself frowned after hearing the word ‘menace’.
“Jiang Chen, what tricks are you going to show this time?” Tian Muyun’s eyes were as sharp as a cold blade, radiating chilling intent.
“Speaking of tricks, you are the one who really impressed me. Tian Muyun, can you see what this is?”
Jiang Chen said, then took out the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd that emitted an overwhelming Qi.
“Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd!”
Countless exclamation of surprise sounded from all direction. Many of them were no stranger to the halberd. It was the Natal Immortal Weapon of Ouyang He. The weapon represented Ouyang He. After his death, the halberd had vanished. Now that it had appeared again in Jiang Chen’s hand, it shocked every one of them.
“Jiang Chen, where did you get the halberd from? What about Master Ouyang?” Daoist Yufeng seemed incomparably stirred.
Instead of answering Daoist Yufeng’s question, Jiang Chen shifted his gaze to Tian Muyun. He was eager to find out what Tian Muyun’s expression would be.
“Tian Muyun, given your intelligence, I suppose you have already guessed what is going here.” Jiang Chen said coldly.
Tian Muyun’s expression was incomparably unpleasant, but he said nothing about it.
“What’s actually going on here?” A late Golden Immortal elder couldn’t help but ask.
“Daoist Yufeng, elders, Senior Ouyang has already passed away. Before his passing, he handed this halberd and the cultivation method named Heavenly Dragon Nine Strikes to me. But he had an unfulfilled wish, that was to help him kill the malicious being. That year, Tian Muyun attacked Senior Ouyang while he was at the critical stage of advancing to the Immortal King realm. Senior Ouyang was only able to escape by burning all of his life essence. Subsequently, Tian Muyun claimed that Senior Ouyang died, and that he was the most eligible disciple to become the new Pavilion Master of Skycloud Pavilion.”
Jiang Chen spoke aloud. Finally, the secret of Tian Muyun was revealed. He knew that no one would believe him if he spoke without evidence. With the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd in his hand, these people had no choice but to believe him.
“What? How could this be possible? I never thought Pavilion Master would be such a person. He even dared to kill his own master? Is he still human? Master has treated him like his own son.”
“Jiang Chen shouldn’t be lying here. That year, when Senior Ouyang passed away, only Tian Muyun knew it. None of us saw the scene with our own eyes. The Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd is the most important treasure of Senior Ouyang, something that would always be with him. Now that it’s in Jiang Chen’s possession and even the Heavenly Dragon Nine Strikes was given to Jiang Chen, this has to be the truth.”
“It seems that knowing one’s appearance and character isn’t equal to knowing one’s heart. How dare he do such an insane thing in spite of how well Master Ouyang treated him?”
For a moment, everyone in Skycloud Pavilion felt pained, changing the way they looked at Tian Muyun – turning the respect and admiration that they had for him into hatred and disgust.
“Tian Muyun, is what Jiang Chen said true?”
Daoist Yufeng’s eyes had already turned red. Although he was reluctant to believe Jiang Chen, he knew that there was no need for Jiang Chen to lie, because if Jiang Chen wanted a life-or-death battle with Tian Muyun, he had no reason to create such an absurd lie to delude everyone. Additionally, the Heavenly Dragon Combat Halberd was in his hand, which made it really convincing.
