The Devil Ape let out a despairing roar. The others might not see the Immortal Burying Coffin, but he could feel it distinctly. That was the qi of a Great Sovereign. He could also feel a strong threat of death from the unparalleled pressure. This unprecedented feeling made even his soul shudder. He had never felt this way even when he was fighting Yang Junlong back then.
In addition, he recognized the appearance of the Immortal Burying Coffin, which was the main reason why he felt despair. Virtually everyone in the world knew about the imposing Immortal Burying Coffin. Naturally, he, the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, also knew about it pretty well. What was this coffin then if it wasn’t the Immortal Burying Coffin?
“Who are you?! Why do you have the power to control the Immortal Burying Coffin?!”
The Devil Ape screamed, full of reluctance. He had finally become a mighty half-step Sovereign and got out of the imprisonment after so many years, however he tragically ran into a peerless expert that could control the Immortal Burying Coffin. The feeling of knowing that he was going to die a graveless death was indescribable.
The moment the Immortal Burying Coffin struck the Devil Ape’s body, he felt as if his soul was about to split. He let out a tragic wail as his body was smashed by the coffin.
“Incredible! The two of them are on totally different level. Although the girl isn’t a half-step Sovereign, she is able to display the strength of a half-step Sovereign in just a matter of a few seconds. I’m afraid that her true strength is comparable to a Great Sovereign. Without a doubt, she is really a peerless genius.”
“Haha! The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape is finished. The crisis of our empire has finally passed. Jiang Chen has always created miracles. This time, he has brought along a powerful expert that can eliminate the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. Our empire would’ve probably been extinct if Jiang Chen didn’t arrive on time.”
“It only took a single blow. How astounding!”
Everyone was surprised, and at the same time, delighted. The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, who was now halved, even if he wasn’t dead yet, he was already finished. He stood no chance at all in the grip of Yan Chenyu.
As a matter of fact, a half-step Sovereign wouldn’t die so easily even if he was cut in half. Plus, Yan Chenyu’s last minute mercy had played a huge role. She had only broken the body of the Devil Ape, his trace of origin still remained, and he wouldn’t die straightaway. This was also because of the timely message coming from Jiang Chen. Otherwise, the Immortal Burying Coffin would have blown the Devil Ape to ashes in one strike.
“It’s your turn, Monkey.” Jiang Chen yelled at Dragon Shisan.
Dragon Shisan was already about to pounce towards his prey even before the signal of Jiang Chen. An opportunity like this could only happen once in his lifetime. If he could devour the mighty Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, his cultivation base would surely improve drastically, and his broken arm would regrow.
Dragon Shisan rushed towards the top of the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape, opened his enormous mouth that looked like a black hole that could suck everything, then swallowed the Devil Ape.
The Devil Ape uttered his final roar of despair. He knew that he was finished. He would surely be digested fully by the Battle Saint Ape.
This was the difference between their bloodlines. If the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape ate Dragon Shisan, his body would receive a strong backlash due to the strong bloodline of Battle Saint Ape, which would end up hurting himself. If Dragon Shisan absorbed him, however,, the scenario would be totally different. Under the suppression of the bloodline of the Battle Saint Ape, his bloodline had no room for resistance. The final outcome was that he would disappear completely from this world.
The Heaven Devouring Devil Ape had been completely eaten by Dragon Shisan. The energy inside Dragon Shisan’s body went wild. The first thing he did was to appear next to Jiang Chen, then he spoke hastily. “Little Chen, quick! The spatial zone of the thirty-third level.”
It wouldn’t be an easy task to refine and absorb a mighty Heaven Devouring Devil Ape. Even the Battle Saint Ape would require a certain amount of time to absorb it. Tomorrow was the wedding day of Dragon Shisan and Lan Lingji. It was an impossible task to fully absorb the Heaven Devouring Devil Ape in one day, however this was feasible if he entered the thirty-third level of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda.
Without hesitation, Jiang Chen opened the doors leading to the spatial zone of the thirty-third level. Whatever happened next would entirely depend on Dragon Shisan himself.
Yan Chenyu reverted to her cold and elegant demeanour and returned to Jiang Chen’s side. She was an unparalleled goddess that only had Jiang Chen in her heart.
Han Yan soared next to them, then smiled at Yan Chenyu. “Xiao Yu, you have finally reunited with Little Chen. And I never expected you to become so powerful. You are to be congratulated!”
Han Yan knew that Yan Chenyu’s origin was unordinary. Which was why she was able to become so powerful all of a sudden. So, Han Yan wasn’t really surprised by it. Besides, he and Tyrant felt pleased to see her grow to such an extent.
“It’s great to see you all again.”
Yan Chenyu also smiled. Han Yan and Tyrant were people she had experienced life and death with before. Particularly Han Yan, he had almost lost his life when he rescued her in Black Sect. She hadn’t forgotten about his kindness.
“Alright. Let’s go down. The crisis in Great Qian Empire has been resolved, but I’m afraid these people haven’t regained their senses yet,” said Jiang Chen.
They then landed from the sky. The higher-ups immediately greeted and saluted them deeply, with the Old Emperor in the lead. Such great kindness surely couldn’t be repaid by just a bow.
“Why is Old Emperor being so polite? You and I are friends. Besides, I’m still a disciple of Genius Prefecture. I, Jiang Chen, naturally can’t stand idly by when the empire is in trouble. Fortunately, I have made it back in time, otherwise I’m going to regret it for the rest of my life,” said Jiang Chen with a smile.
They almost shed tears upon listening to these words, especially Yang Yu, he felt that he had made the wisest choice in his life and that he hadn’t picked the wrong person.
Yang Bufan patted Jiang Chen’s shoulder with force. It was the biggest harvest and the luckiest thing in his life that he was able to befriend such a person.
