Chapter 445: Killing the Hua Yun Sect (Two)
“Fourth master, if you do that, your strength would be revealed. Although it would be a glorious moment for the clan, this servant worries about the troubles that might fall upon your head.” Chang Bai spoke with concern.
“Chang Bai, this isn’t a problem you should worry about. I will take care of everything.” Jian Chen spoke calmly without an ounce of worry for himself.
Seeing the resolute look on Jian Chen’s face, Chang Bai knew that there was no convincing him. To put off his own worries, Chang Bai spoke, “Fourth master, please allow this old man to accompany you then.”
Shaking his head, Jian Chen replied, “Chang Bai, the Hua Yun Sect is something I need to take care of myself. I know my own strength, I alone will be enough.”
Upon hearing Jian Chen’s words, Chang Bai couldn’t help but think back to when they were both at the stronghold of the Pingyang Kingdom. With a small smile, he spoke, “The fourth master is already an expert that can defend himself. If the fourth master wishes to go by himself, then this old servant won’t meddle anymore.”
“Chang Bai, I will trouble you with my mother and father. I will be back soon.” As he spoke about his parents, Jian Chen’s eyes couldn’t help but soften slightly.
“The fourth lady and clan leader will be reassured by me. Fourth master, head out early and come back early.”
Jian Chen nodded his head and began to control the world energy to cover his body. With the wind element surrounding him, Jian Chen instantly blew away into the sky in a blur of cyan. In an instant, he disappeared behind the clouds in the sky.
Seeing Jian Chen disappear, Chang Bai face revealed an astonished look, “Strange, back at the Pingyang Kingdom’s borders, I could have sworn that I saw the fourth master using the fire element. Now, he’s using the wind element, could it be that the fourth master is able to control both elements?”
Chang Bai looked back to the boundless sky and let out a drawn out sigh. Muttering to himself, he said, “The fourth master has already surpassed all of my expectations. It seems that not after long, the Changyang clan will join the ranks of the strongest clans because of the fourth master.”
“Ai, who knows when the master will return. If he knew that the Changyang clan had such an outstanding child, who knows how happy he would be.”
Afterward, Chang Bai left to look for Changyang Ba and tell him the news. After receiving the information, Changyang Ba’s eyebrows scrunched together as he spoke with worry, “Chang Bai, will there be any problem with Xiang’er going by himself?”
Chang Bai shook his head, “Unlikely. When I first witnessed his strength, four of the Heaven Saint Masters from the Pingyang Kingdom and Qian Yun from the Qiangan Kingdom had been unable to even touch the fourth master. The Hua Yun Sect stands no chance.”
“Then who knows how Xiang’er will decide on how to deal with the Hua Yun Sect. If what you say is true, Xiang’er already possesses the strength to easily destroy the entire Hua Yun Sect. Many years ago, the fact that the Hua Yun Sect had forced Xiang’er to flee his home surely must have left a deep grudge within his heart. Do you think Xiang’er will act upon such a drastic action and destroy the Hua Yun Sect?” Changyang Ba’s eyebrows scrunched together in concern.
Hearing this, Chang Bai was stunned for a moment before growing shocked. “Alas! I hadn’t thought of such a thing at that moment. With the fourth master’s strength, he could truly destroy the Hua Yun Sect. With the war our kingdom has just experienced, our kingdom lacks power. We even lost three Heaven Saint Masters from the battle, depleting our forces by a large amount. If the Hua Yun Sect were to be destroyed by the fourth master, our kingdom will fall into a period of weakness that would take a hundred years to recover from.”
“You speak correctly. If Xiang’er truly kills off every expert from the Hua Yun Sect, there won’t be anything left to do. Our Gesun Kingdom has already lost too many Heaven Saint Masters.” Changyang Ba had a serious look to his face. Whether the Gesun Kingdom would be able to recover or not depended on the support of Heaven Saint Masters. They were the symbols of strength for a kingdom. Losing them would bring about a giant loss for the entire kingdom.
Furthermore, the patriarch of the Hua Yun Sect was the minister of the Gesun Kingdom. With such an achievement, his status was extremely high. If the Changyang clan were to destroy the Hua Yun Sect, then it would not be an easily forgivable act.
A thousand meters in the air, Jian Chen flew in between the clouds, allowing them to hide his body from below. This time, he was not carrying the tiger cub and had fed it yesterday night with several heavenly resources, causing it to sleep. With the current digestion rate of the tiger cub, it would take two or three days before it would wake up again.
The Hua Yun Sect was about 4000 kilometers away from Lore City and resided upon the most famous mountain in Gesun Kingdom–Tianhua Mountains.
The Hua Yun Sect held a decisive amount of power within the Gesun Kingdom and was the strongest aside from the imperial family. Now that they had a new Heaven Saint Master, the Hua Yun Sect was now the uncontested power within the Gesun Kingdom and could even control the imperial family.
The Hua Yun Sect had resided within the Gesun Kingdom for hundreds of years, back when the kingdom had just barely been established alongside the Changyang clan. At that time, the founding patriarch of the Hua Yun Sect, the patriarch of the Changyang clan, and the very first headmaster of Kargath Academy had been called the ministers of the Gesun Kingdom.
After over four hours of flying, Jian Chen finally arrived at Tianhua Mountains before walking the rest of the way there.
The Hua Yun Sect that were walking on horseback had only just arrived back home, therefore everyone was rushing to bring their items from the horses back inside the monastery. Right in front of the gates were a dozen soldiers standing guard, they were clearly the ones responsible for the gates.
With his head held high, Jian Chen strode for the mountain gates of the Hua Yun Sect. Just as he reached a thirty meters distance, two of the disciples instantly blocked his path and spoke arrogantly, “Who are you and what is your purpose with the Hua Yun Sect?” Saiya’s advancement into the Heaven Saint Master realm had already made news around the sect. This meant the Hua Yun Sect now had three Heaven Saint Masters, making them the strongest faction of power within the entire Gesun Kingdom. With such a title, the normal disciples of the Hua Yun Sect felt utterly prideful, looking down on almost everyone.
Jian Chen’s eyes suddenly turned cold as he swiped at the sky. All of the energy in the world suddenly began to gather in front of Jian Chen’s palm before he pushed it forward, pushing the world energy toward the disciples standing guard. As soon as the disciples were blown away, the door they had been protecting suddenly pushed apart from the world energy, allowing Jian Chen entry.
