Chapter 480 - Big Yellow's Transformation
Jiang Chen’s arrival overwhelmed the entire Nangong Family. Nangong Yunfan and the others of the Nangong Family upper echelons had also just returned to the family, but none of them dared show any neglect. They all came out to visit Jiang Chen. Today’s Jiang Chen was no longer the same as the Jiang Chen who visited them a month ago; he was now the hero of the Southern Continent, a mighty warrior who was capable of killing Demon Kings!
For the Nangong Family, Jiang Chen’s visit brought them a lot of glory.
"Nephew Jiang, welcome!"
A bright smile bloomed onto Nangong Yunfan’s face. Jiang Chen didn’t go to the Profound River Palace, but instead chose to visit the Nangong Family. It showed how highly he thought of the Nangong Family. Although one of the biggest reasons why he came here was his relationship with Nangong Wentian, no matter what, this was something beneficial that had no drawbacks.
“Uncle, Big Yellow needs to enter secluded cultivation. Can I get a place for him?”
Jiang Chen had taken Big Yellow with him, and had wrapped the gentlest force around Big Yellow so that he could sleep peacefully, without ever being able to notice that he was being moved around.
Nangong Yunfan had long ago noticed the sleeping Big Yellow. Initially, he thought that Big Yellow had been injured, but now he realized that Big Yellow was actually cultivating. Using sleep as a cultivation method, this truly put everyone else to shame.
“No problem! Nephew Jiang Chen, just leave Big Yellow to me.”
Nangong Yunfan said. Jiang Chen waved his hand and pushed Big Yellow to Nangong Yunfan. He believe that Nangong Yunfan would definitely give Big Yellow the best place to cultivate in the Nangong Family.
In Nangong Wentian’s courtyard, Jiang Chen, Nangong Wentian, Han Yan and Yan Chenyu, all four of them were sitting around a table, laughing and talking. A relaxed smile could be seen on their faces. It had been a long time since they were so relaxed.
The Eastern Continent and Southern Continent; all matters there had been completely settled, and all enemies had been annihilated. Jiang Chen was an invincible existence in both continents, and no one were a match for him.
“Little Chen, you’re invincible now! This is truly something worth celebrating!”
Han Yan said with a smile.
Jiang Chen shook his head with a smile and said, “Being invincible here is considered nothing. My aspirations are far beyond this, and I’m guessing you all have the aspirations. After all, the Eastern Continent and Southern Continent are too small. A Second Grade Combat King is strong enough to conquer everything. However, do you guys know that a Second Grade Combat King is nothing in the Divine Continent? Not only that, even a Ninth Grade Combat King can’t claim to be a big s.h.i.t. In some of the superpowers, even Combat Emperors aren’t considered much. There are also some families and other powers who inherited things from the ancient era; their resources are rich and powerful, and there are real Saints among them.”
After listening to what Jiang Chen told them, Han Yan and Nangong Wentian were struck with mixed emotions. The two men looked at each other and saw the same pa.s.sionate look in each other’s eyes. The Divine Continent; the heart of the Saint Origin realm, it was the place that bore the dreams of countless mighty warriors. Now, it was a place that truly attracted their eyes.
In that land, they could meet powerful Combat Kings, the predominant Combat Emperors, and even Saints who could dominate the entire world. However, both of them were still only Combat Soul warriors, and those realms seemed very far away from them.
At the moment, Han Yan and Nangong Wentian both became silent. They knew that in order for them to become mighty warriors, they would have to go to the Divine Continent. If not, no matter how talented they were, they could at most only become Combat Kings by staying here, and it would be impossible for them to obtain stronger cultivation bases. It was all because of the difference between the regions, as well as the fluctuations of the Worldly Laws, as they greatly restrained the growth of a warrior. Thus, it was impossible for this land to produce mighty warriors like those in the Divine Continent.
“Looks like we’ll have to work harder. With our current strength, if we really travel to the Divine Continent, we’ll most likely just be some smallfries. Only when we’ve broken through to the Late Combat Soul realm, or perhaps even the Combat King realm can we travel to the Divine Continent and continue our adventure.”
Han Yan said in a serious manner. After listening to Jiang Chen’s introduction to the Divine Continent, he and Nangong Wentian realized their weakness. In fact, these two men were both elites of their generation, and the possessed extraordinary talents that no common men had; they were geniuses amongst geniuses! However, when comparing themselves to Jiang Chen, the gap immediately became clear.
“Brother Yan, you have the Ancient Divine Devil bloodline, and just like Little Yu, it’s an innate Divine Body const.i.tution. A const.i.tution like this will only grow stronger and stronger with time, and you actually have limitless potential. Following the continuous transformation of your bloodline, it will be incredibly easy for you to advance on your path of cultivation, so you don’t have to worry. It is very possible for you to break through to the Late Combat Soul realm, or even the First Grade Combat King realm in a very short amount of time.”
Jiang Chen told Han Yan. After that, he turned to Nangong Wentian and said, “Brother Nan is cultivating the Ten Thousand Everlasting Elephants skill. It is an ancient skill that allows him to form the Ancient Barbarian Elephant. Once the skill becomes stronger, Brother Nan will have a limitless future as well. Therefore, with your talents, increasing your strength is actually quite simple. At least, compared to ordinary men, your path of cultivation is a hundred times easier.”
Jiang Chen’s vast experience in cultivation gave him good senses, allowing him to accurately determine the innate talent of other people. Han Yan and Yan Chenyu both had a Divine Body, and Nangong Wentian was cultivating an extraordinary skill. Thus, the innate talent of these three people could actually be compared to his in his previous life.
However, if one were to compare the three of them to the current Jiang Chen, the gap would still be huge. The mightiness of the Dragon Transformation skill was far, far beyond what Jiang Chen had first expected. His body could contain any bloodline underneath the heavens, making him extremely powerful when compared to others, even those with Divine Bodies. Furthermore, Jiang Chen had a feeling that the Dragon Transformation skill was not just a skill; he could tell that when he became able to transform parts of his body into parts of a dragon.
Not only that, after the Dragon Transformation skill had transformed twice, Jiang Chen had obtained two formidable skills as well as the True Dragon Flame. Also, when he was in Inferno h.e.l.lo, he could actually control the Blood Talisman with his skill. All of this was proof of how unusual the Dragon Transformation skill was.
Jiang Chen still remembered the Blood Talisman in Inferno h.e.l.l. Initially, he planned on visiting that place once more, but since it only opened up once a year, Jiang Chen couldn’t make it this time. Furthermore, Jiang Chen had a feeling that even with his current strength, he wouldn’t truly be able to take the Blood Talisman. Therefore, he decided to visit the Divine Continent first, and when he had a mighty cultivation base in the future, he would return to Inferno h.e.l.lo and look for that Blood Talisman, and find out about the relationship between it and the Dragon Transformation skill.
"Chen Gege, when are we going back to Eastern Continent?"
Yan Chenyu changed the topic of their conversation.
“We need to wait for Big Yellow. He has obtained a lot of benefits after absorbing Lord Baoju’s demon soul and blood. We got to give him some time to digest it all.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile.
"Chen Gege, I want to visit the Island of Ice."
Yan Chenyu suddenly said.
“Island of Ice? Little Yu, why do you want to go there?”
Jiang Chen asked. He did feel that something about Yan Chenyu hadn’t been right these past few days, especially when things got quiet, as if something was on her mind. However, as Jiang Chen was busy with all the battles, he hadn’t had time to ask her about it. And now, Yan Chenyu suddenly said she wanted to visit the Island of Ice, so Jiang Chen felt that something wasn’t right.
“Chen Gege, do you still remember the Black Ice Talisman you gave me? After I absorbed it, it has always stayed in my body without showing any signs of activity. However, during the past few days, it suddenly became restless, and began sending forth a call to me. I can sense a mysterious force from the talisman, and that force is pointing me towards the Island of Ice.”
Yan Chenyu explained, not hiding anything from Jiang Chen.
“The Black Ice Talisman is sending you a message? Little Yu, listen to me, this could be a really good thing for you! I went to the Glacier World before, and the entire dimension was created by this Black Ice Talisman. It is a mysterious talisman, and even I can’t tell exactly what it is. The Ice Demon King told me that only the true inheritor of the Ice G.o.d can possess the Black Ice Talisman, and I think you might actually be that person. Once Big Yellow awakens, we’ll rush back to the Eastern Continent, then I’ll accompany you to the Island of Ice.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. Since the Black Ice Talisman had recognized Yan Chenyu as its owner, it would never harm her. The Island of Ice had a mysterious history, and so did this Black Ice Talisman. Perhaps Yan Chenyu could obtain huge benefits from both the Black Ice Talisman and the Island of Ice.
“Chen Gege, I’ll return to the Eastern Continent alone. You can come back once Big Yellow awakens. I want to spend some time with my dad.”
Yan Chenyu said.
“Alright. Be careful on your way back.
Jiang Chen gently placed his palm on Yan Chenyu’s forehead and said. This little girl knew that they would soon be going to the Divine Continent, but she did not know when they would be able to return, so she wanted to spend some more time with her family. This made Jiang Chen think of his father, Jiang Zhenhai. Once he returned to the Eastern Continent, he would spend some time with Jiang Zhenhai as well, before traveling to the Divine Continent.
Yan Chenyu smiled, then she flew into the sky and disappeared from the scene. With her strength, ordinary Late Combat Soul warriors were no match for her, so it was basically impossible for her to meet with any accidents along the way. Thus, Jiang Chen didn’t worry about letting her return alone.
In fact, Jiang Chen could go back to the Eastern Continent with Yan Chenyu, and let Big Yellow return by himself once he wakes up. However, as Jiang Chen knew that Big Yellow was in a most critical moment right now, he couldn’t afford to let anything bad happen to him. Thus, he decided to stay back here and take care of him.
The day after Big Yellow went to ‘sleep’, Daoist Profound River, the Great Elder, and Wu Ningzhu arrived at the Nangong Family. This was the first time that the Palace Chief had come to the Nangong Family, causing the entire Nangong Family to be busy. Although they knew Daoist Profound River was here for Jiang Chen, it was still of good influence to the Nangong Family.
Out of Jiang Chen’s expectations, Big Yellow actually slept for an entire month. One day, an extremely thick golden beam shot into the sky. Within that bright beam, an illusionary figure of a Dragon Horse could be seen.
