Chapter 1727: Grand Supreme Elder

If Jiang Chen had known what Qiu Li had been thinking just now, he would’ve laughed.
Ever since he’d risen from the Realm of Nine Heavens, he’d experienced multitudes and multitudes of fights, large and small.
It was fair to say he had fought his way through life right up until this day.
He wasn’t trying intentionally to mislead anyone into believing that he was inexperienced.
It was just because he was already so strong.
For this reason, he didn’t need to be so concerned.
Jiang Chen waved his right fist and threw it over in an all-out punch.
The real dragon chime broke out during this punch.
This punch had been powerful enough to destroy the world. More than that, Lil Ying of the Heaven-Punishing Sword had moved from Jiang Chen’s left hand in the sword to his right hand.
Consequently, the Thunder Dragon Fist, which was twined with thunder and lightning, was exerted in front of this enormous audience.
WOOF! WOOF! WOOF!
The audience was dumbstruck because they heard the sounds of a dog barking as well.
“Okay! Beat this guy to death!”
Jiang Chen gave Qiu Li an angry punch after understanding Lil Ying’s intentions.
Although Qiu Li was shocked, he could in no way retreat at this moment. He didn’t mind getting himself hurt in order to hurt Jiang Chen.
The claws, the iron fist, and the iron wings kept clanking, creating a startling power and lots of loud noises. The energy given off from them even outshone the sun.
“Is this the power of an Extraordinary Supreme Venerable?”
Many people had never seen such a desperate fight before. They felt that their blood had been frozen. And they were extremely scared.
In the end, something much more surprising happened.
Qiu Li was sent flying like an unstrung kite. He flew up in a curve and then started to fall.
Various parts of the Doomsday Magic Dragon Armor he was wearing had been dented to different extents. His arms were wounded where the iron and flesh had blended. He was bleeding.
“Not bad. You’re still alive after such a tough punch from me,” Jiang Chen said with interest, waving his arm about a little.
His comment made the onlookers go speechless.
“Your rival was fully armed, while you were wearing such clean white clothes. You, unarmed, gave your rival such a good beating and then made insensitive remarks.”
If they had been Qiu Li, they would’ve been pissed to death.
“Is he a Wizard?”
Due to his arrogance, some people couldn’t help but wonder.
Wizards looked like humans. And they were all strong warriors. It would make total sense if he was one.
“No, he is human. And he has a state too. Damn! Check out his state!”
Some guy had discovered what was special about Jiang Chen before any of the others: the state he showed as the fight became more and more desperate.
He sounded so shocked that people naturally supposed Jiang Chen’s state was extremely high. Then, when they’d found out what his state really was, their reactions were exactly the same as the original guy’s. An uproar started in the city immediately.
A Martial Arts Saint in the middle stage: this was Jiang Chen’s state. He wasn’t even in the second tier among practitioners in the City in the Sky.
However, even so, he’d hurt Qiu Li to such an extent.
“Who the h*ll is he?” Everyone was puzzled.
“Well, Master Wu, it occurs to me that there is something I need to handle at home. I have to go now.”
Assessing the current situation, Qi Lie was going to slip away.
However, at this moment, several brilliant sword radiances appeared on the horizon.
“Is that the reinforcements?”
“Qiu Li is a loner. He doesn’t belong to any force. That can’t be his reinforcements.”
“And they are swordsmen. They might be here to help this young man.”
“But he doesn’t seem to need them.”
Jiang Chen was a swordsman. It was natural for them to associate him with those sword radiances.
“They’re coming from the Heavenly Ease Sword School! And it’s a Grand Supreme Elder! He has come in person!”
Yao Qing was the first to recognize who was coming.
The leader was the Grand Supreme Elder of the Heavenly Ease Sword School, who was Apprentice Younger Brother Chu’s grandpa.
The title Grand Supreme Elder was one level higher than Grand Elder. It was fair to say that Grand Supreme Elders were backbones of a school. They usually stayed in the school and didn’t leave easily. Because once they left, an enemy could take advantage of their absence to attack the school.
Yao Qing had never expected the Grand Supreme Elder to come in person. It was not difficult to imagine how sad he was about Apprentice Younger Brother Chu’s death.
At the same time, Yao Qing felt quite pressured.
In the air, Qiu Li and Jiang Chen had also stopped because of this new situation.
“Heavenly Ease Sword School? Is this young man from the Heavenly Ease Sword School?”
Qiu Li involuntarily thought that these were reinforcements for Jiang Chen. He was going to flee. As for his apprentice’s revenge, revenge would only be possible if he stayed alive.
However, just as he was about to flee, he realized that there was no eye contact between the newcomers and Jiang Chen. It meant that they didn’t know him.
“Isn’t that the Grand Supreme Elder from the Heavenly Ease Sword School, Chu Tianhe?”
“He’s a senior who gained his fame a long time ago. He usually stays in the school. Why would he come here?”
“He looks like he’s seeking revenge.”
It was eye-opening for the citizens of the City in the Sky.
Usually, it was even hard to see an Extraordinary Supreme Venerable. The city lord was a Senior Supreme Venerable, and he was already strong enough to maintain order in the city.
However, so many strange things had happened on this day.
Chu Tianhe looked even more indignant than Qiu Li.
Humans were of a more subtle and refined sensibility. Besides, it was his own grandson that had been killed. Blood is thicker than water.
His eyes were full of anger and resentment.
“Yao Qing, where is the guy?”
He’d totally ignored Qiu Li and Jiang Chen, who were up in the air. All of his attention had been drawn to the outside of the city lord’s mansion.
“Grand Supreme Elder, I haven’t got the guy…” Yao Qing said immediately.
“You useless thing! Your apprentice younger brother was killed in your presence, and you can’t even catch the killer?”
Chu Tianhe wouldn’t listen to her at all. Flying into a rage, he scolded her loudly.
“Elder Chu, it’s not that Apprentice Younger Sister Yao Qing doesn’t want to catch the killer. The thing is the killer is too strong. Apprentice Younger Sister Yao Qing actually did a great job in following him here.” Meng Shixiong spoke up for Yao Qing immediately.
“Ha, ha, ha, how strong can he be?” Chu Tianhe laughed in a self-mocking manner. He was quite emotional at the moment.
He believed it must be one of his grandson’s peers who had killed him. And this peer was at most an average Martial Sovereign.
In the Green Field, all Extraordinary Supreme Venerables would give way to him and the Heavenly Ease Sword School.
“I killed him. Cut the cr*p,” Jiang Chen said impatiently from the air when Meng Shixiong was about to disclose who was the killer.
The city went into uproar once again.
“This young man is really a troublemaker.”
Both Qiu Li’s apprentice and Chu Tianhe’s grandson had died because of Jiang Chen, directly or indirectly.
Qiu Li couldn’t believe it either, but then he was pleasantly surprised. He hadn’t gone all-out yet in their blow exchanges, but he didn’t know whether Jiang Chen had held back as well.
So, if anything went wrong, he could just leave first. He wouldn’t come back until he was ready.
However, this was an unexpected twist for him. At the moment he’d gotten a helper.
“You? A Martial Arts Saint in the middle stage?” Chu Tianhe said as he glanced at him, unable to believe it.
“Grand Supreme Elder…”
After Yao Qing and Qiu Li’s confusing but informative explanations, Chu Tianhe finally got to know Jiang Chen better.
“Why did you kill my grandson?” he said coldly, finally looking at Jiang Chen.
“Because your grandson intended to kill me,” said Jiang Chen.
“You should’ve held back. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have made such a mistake,” said Chu Tianhe.
Who would be so dumb as to offend Jiang Chen if they knew how strong he really was?
“You are actually like a Venerable Sovereign. You should show it in the first place, so that others will know whom they are facing. You shouldn’t pretend you are weak in order to lure others.
Chu Tianhe was old enough to see everything clearly.
“In other words, if I had been really that weak, I should’ve just let myself be killed by your grandson?” asked Jiang Chen.
“Exactly. This is the rule in this world,” said Chu Tianhe.
Most people agreed with him.
“Ho, ho, ho, why are we wasting time in talking?”
Jiang Chen didn’t bother to argue. He had been injured, so he couldn’t show his full strength.
Besides, he had warned Chu Tianhe’s grandson.
