Chapter 1985: Imperial Capital of the Blood Sun Empire
After they arrived in the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire, Jian Chen contemplated what he should do next. Although the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire was the safest place in the southern region, he could not remain here forever.
After all, he could say that he had already fallen out with the ninth prince of the Blood Sun Empire with what had happened in the Yin Mountains of Sevens Despair. He was closer than ever to the ninth prince here.
Aside from that, although the imperial capital could keep Huai An at bay, it was keeping him at bay at most. If Huai An truly wanted to act recklessly, the Blood Sun Empire would not be able to do anything to him.
After all, an extremely terrifying great elder supported the Empyrean Demon Cult behind Huai An. Let alone the eternal Blood Sun Empire, but even those peak clans of the Cloud Plane did not dare to provoke the great elder so easily.
“In the current Cloud Plane, probably nowhere is completely safe apart from the central region. Do I really have to go to the central region?” Jian Chen thought. He could not help but think of Tong Tian now that the central region had been brought up. The Tong family that Tong Tian came from was located in the central region.
He still possessed the jade pendant Tong Tian had given him.
“No, I definitely can’t go to the central region. Huai An has already come personally to kill me. It means that he already views me as a thorn in his side. If I go to the central region, he’ll definitely come pursuing. Once I draw him to the central region, it’ll increase the danger to uncle Xiu as well. Uncle Xiu holds the nine blood beads and soul beads that the Empyrean Demon Cult has spent countless years refining. This matter ties into far too many things, so if the people from the Empyrean Demon Cult learn about this, the consequences will be unimaginable. As a result, I can’t go. I can’t make it more dangerous for uncle Xiu,” Jian Chen frowned. He discovered that although the Cloud Plane was vast, there was actually nowhere where he could go.
This was all because the organisation behind Huai An was just too great. Otherwise, although Huai An would be able to move around freely the southern region with his strength as an Infinite Prime, there would be no need for eternal empires to treat him with caution.
“Jian Chen, I heard that the Saints’ World has a total of forty-nine great planes and eighty-one great planets. Our Cloud Plane is only one of the forty-nine planes. Since we can’t stay on the Cloud Plane anymore, why don’t we leave temporarily and return once we’re powerful enough?” Kai Ya said. Although she had not spent a lot of time conscious in the Saints’ World, she possessed some basic understanding. She had also learnt just how powerful the Empyrean Demon Cult was from what Jian Chen had told her. As a result, she understood just how troublesome of a matter it was now that they had caught the eye of an Infinite Prime of the Empyrean Demon Cult.
Kai Ya paused. After some thought, she continued, “Moreover, with our cultivation speed, I believe we won’t need to fear Huai An before long.”
“Leave the Cloud Plane?” A sliver of bitterness appeared on Jian Chen’s face. It was easy to say that, but it was nowhere close to easy when it came to practice. He did not have five-colored divine crystals to pay to use the teleportation formations.
The teleportation formations between planes were extremely expensive to use. In the past, fairy Hao Yue even had to kill an extremely powerful Primordial realm expert for the Xuandao Empire to obtain enough five-colored divine crystals to go home.
Right now, although Jian Chen possessed supreme quality divine crystals from Yaxi Lian, it was still not enough once they had been converted to five-colored divine crystals.
At this moment, the faces of Jian Chen and Kai Ya changed. They suddenly looked behind them and found that three demonic auras radiated from the end of the bustling street. They approached Jian Chen and Kai Ya extremely quickly.
“What powerful demonic auras. They’re from the Empyrean Demon Cult.”
“They’re Godkings from the Empyrean Demon Cult. They’ve actually come to the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire.”
“The Empyrean Demon Cult really is too arrogant. They don’t even know how to keep a low profile in the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire. They’re completely looking down on the Blood Sun Empire.”
The arrival of the three late Godkings from the Empyrean Demon Cult immediately attracted the attention of many people in the imperial capital. However, even though they looked at the three Godkings in displeasure, no one dared to stand forward.
As if the three Godkings wanted the people there to know they were from the Empyrean Demon Cult, they did not conceal their presences at all even though they were in the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire. Their late Godking presences surged out as demonic aura emanated into their surroundings, shrouding them as a thick, black mist.
At the same time, at the other end of the bustling street several kilometers away, there was a white-robed young man who seemed to be in his twenties with a fan. He strolled around idly with two female attendants.
When the three Godkings of the Empyrean Demon Cult entered the imperial city, the young man stopped. He frowned and said, “The Empyrean Demon Cult is just too arrogant. What do they think the imperial capital of our Blood Sun Empire is? It’s not a place where they can behave as they wish.”
“Your highness, looking at how they’re behaving, they’re probably hunting down people that have offended them. Let’s just endure a small matter like this. We can’t make a ruckus,” a female attendant said from behind the young man.
The young man’s face sank. Suddenly, he opened his fan and said, “If I just let this pass, will our imperial family still have any pride left?”
Jian Chen and Kai Ya became grim when they sensed the three Godkings in pursuit. Jian Chen called out, “They’ve arrived here faster than I imagined. It looks like they don’t plan on treating the Blood Sun Empire cautiously at all and plan to eliminate us in the imperial capital. Let’s go!” Jian Chen grabbed Kai Ya and immediately took off, approaching the imperial palace of the Blood Sun Empire.
However, the two of them were unable to take to the skies in the imperial capital. They could only hover along the ground, so their speed was naturally drastically affected as a result.
“Did you think you’d be safe once you made it to the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire? You are far too naive.”
At this moment, a deep voice rang out from behind. The three Godkings had already locked onto Jian Chen’s presence. They were completely fearless in the imperial capital, where their speeds suddenly exploded, and they directly took to the skies. They made it past Jian Chen and Kai Ya in the blink of an eye, landing before them to block their path.
“The vice-leader had personally ordered your capture, so even if you escape to the ends of the world, you won’t be able to run away from our Empyrean Demon Cult. Just give up,” sneered a Godking. He directly attacked the two of them after that. Clearly, he was unwilling to waste too much time.
After all, this was the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire. Although their statuses could act as a form of deterrence, it would not benefit them at all if they wasted too much time.
Jian Chen and Kai Ya became extremely stern. Jian Chen equipped his god artifact as soon as possible and circulated the Chaotic Force within him, pushing the defences of the Chaotic Body to the limit. He even drew the cracked Startling Rainbow sword.
“The Empyrean Demon Cult really is getting bolder and bolder.” At this moment, a cold snort rang out from behind. With a flash, a person appeared before Jian Chen and Kai Ya. He was a young man who wore white robes and held a fan.
The young man’s face did not change when he was faced with the attacks of the three Godkings. He directly swung his fan.
Immediately, the air around them moved. The world seemed to be flipped from the young man’s action. The power of laws in the young man’s fan seemed to affect the space there, making it become slightly different.
The attacks from the three Godkings rebounded without any prior signs when they came in contact with the space. The energy that they sent towards Jian Chen and Kai Ya had been reflected back towards them.
The expressions of the three Godkings changed. However, they were experienced after all, so even though this had happened suddenly, they reacted as quickly as possible. Godking level laws descended, and they sent out a second attack to nullify the first.
Immediately, powerful energy splayed out. If they were in the wilderness, the energy would be powerful enough to crush mountains. However, an extremely powerful formation protected the imperial capital of the Blood Sun Empire, so the energy naturally failed to cause any damage at all.
