Chapter 382: Jiang Chen Barges Into the Meeting

When Lei Gangyang saw that no one objected, he nodded and spoke in a stern, weighty tone. “Since this is the case, I advocate making a move to suppress him. From today forth, our sects will send forth two people each day to challenge other candidates until we meet him in battle. Everyone knows what to do when they meet him in battle, correct?”

With the four sects sending out two people each, that would be eight people from each sect everyday. Issuing challenges at this pace every single day meant that there was a high chance that they would meet Jiang Chen in battle.

Perhaps not the first day, but the second… third…

They would meet some day, even if it stretched to the tenth or twentieth day.

Everyone sucked in a breath of cold air when they heard Lei Gangyang’s words. He meant to brutally deal a killing blow!

Long Juxue was the first to step out in support again. “I support senior brother Gangyang. This fellow is cocky beyond belief and cannot be allowed to continue like this. There will be a time when we meet him in battle if we take turns issuing challenges. I, Long Juxue, hereby say that if I meet him in battle, I will strive my utmost to kill him in the ring and not allow him to walk out of it alive.”

“I am also willing to participate!” Ceng Shi stood up to say.

Lei Gangyang smiled faintly, “I’m the one who called for the meeting and naturally can’t sit idly by. I started this and therefore will also take a stand. What do the other three sects say?”

There were three willing to step out from the Purple Sun Sect, this meant that the way out for the other three sects was sealed off. My Purple Sun Sect is so proactive, are you going to sit idly by and enjoy the fruits of our labors?

Lian Canghai thought momentarily and raised his hand. “Count me in I guess.”

Iron Dazhi also spoke up when he saw Lian Canghai express his views. “Me as well.”

Lei Gangyang actually wasn’t that pleased to see Iron Dazhi join. After all, he was the dregs of the geniuses in the Precious Tree Sect. He rather wanted to see Xie Yufan come out.

However, he needed proactive people at the moment. Iron Dazhi fit the bill, and Lei Gangyang wasn’t quite in a position to turn him down.

On the Flowing Wind Sect side, Shi Yunyun chuckled. “I will do my best and try since Daoist Gangyang has spoken thus. However, I cannot promise what I can do.”

Lei Gangyang was unhappy to this. You’ve already thought of the way out before the challenge has even begun, this is obvious demotivation.

On the Myriad Spirit Sect side, Luo Xi pointed at two people beside him. “I have no interest in this. Let my two junior brothers participate.”

When Lei Gangyang saw that one of them was fobbing him off with an excuse, and the other was just flat out not participating, he was quite ticked off and said coldly, “Is ole brother Luo seeking to profit off our labor?”

“Profit off your labor?” Luo Xi smiled faintly. “Elder brother Lei can stop right here. I’d rather like to see where the limits of the secular genius are.”

“Humph, his limits will be here!”

Although Luo Xi was unwilling to make a move, Lei Gangyang didn’t force him. There were so many willing to take action at the moment, and they were all the top geniuses in the sky quadrant.

Any one of them would be enough to crush that secular genius.

Tang Hong suddenly started laughing loudly at this moment. “Fascinating, how fascinating! Look at all your ugly behaviors. How ludicrous, hilarious!”

“What a bullshit meeting of the most high. Suppressing all dissidents and thinking only of your own profit. These so-called geniuses are all shit!”

Tang Hong threw his head back in laughter as he walked out the door.

He couldn’t hold it in anymore. This so-called meeting was just a bunch of selfish geniuses discussing how to suppress someone different.

Tang Hong was embarrassed to keep such company.

Lei Gangyang’s eyebrows arched when he heard these words and killing intent exploded in his eyes.

“Lian Canghai, is there no one who can subdue this foolish brute amongst the geniuses of your sect?”

Lian Canghai said faintly, “He’s always been a loner and does things his way. I have no interactions with him.”

“Humph. Since you’ve said so, if he offends and ends up in my sect’s hands one day, don’t you go pointing fingers or lecturing me then.” Lei Gangyang responded frostily.

“If he gives offense, that’s him courting death. What does that have to do with me?” Lian Canghai answered remotely.

Luo Xi smiled faintly and cupped his hands at everyone. “Folks, you have much to discuss. I am not participating in this and will take my leave now.”

“We will be taking our leave as well.” Those who hadn’t volunteered all excused themselves.

Soon, although those who were going to be issuing challenges were left on the premises.

Lei Gangyan’s gaze swept over everyone’s face. “Everyone, since we’ve decided to make a move, we should not have any mercy. Although our challenges will be selected randomly everyday, we will select him one day. I only hope…”

Lei Gangyang suddenly twitched his ears before finishing his words and his eyes sent out a beam of light into the air. He shouted, “Who is it!”

“Are you Lei Gangyang?” A remote voice sounded indifferently in the air.

A figure suddenly appeared in the air as he sat leisurely on the wall. His hands were around his knees and he seemed to be taking it easy.

“How dare you trespass on my private property?! Die! Get down here!”

A cold killing intent shot out of Lei Gangyang’s eyes as he waved his large palm. A strong current of qi like yang energy from the stars charged forth like a dragon.

There was actually strands of electric snakes in this devastatingly masculine blow. It encompassed the dao of thunder within it.

“The Gangyang Thundersnake!” Shu Yunyun exclaimed. “I’ve heard that Daoist Gangyang possesses the constitution of thunder. It looks like the rumors are true!”

When the figure on the wall saw this dominating blow shoot towards him, he smiled faintly and made a grasping motion, seeming to want to catch this blow with his hands.

When Lei Gangyang saw that the other was so self assured, he grinned and started laughing coldly.

This kid wants to die alright. Although I’ve only used fifty to sixty percent of my strength in this blow, it embodies the powerful dao of thunder. Let’s wait and see his hand get burned to a crisp when he catches this blow!

“Mm?” This thought had just flashed through Lei Gangyang’s mind when his face darkened in the next moment, an incredulous look appearing on it.

The other had made a grasping motion, and although his body had swayed slightly, it was as if Lei Gangyang’s blow had been swallowed by a formless power when it’d rushed to the other’s palm. It was snuffed out like the flame being blown out of a candle.

“What?”

Lei Gangyang was stunned. He was very confident in his own strength and had planned on burning the other’s hand to a crisp with this blow. He hadn’t thought that i’d be easily neutralized instead.

The person on the wall was naturally Jiang Chen.

Jiang Chen laughed and spoke indifferently, “Is this the strength of the so-called first genius? That’s all there is to it. I’ve heard that all of you are gathered here to to take turns in the ring until you meet me in battle?”

“Kid, you’re courting death!”

When had Lei Gangyang lost face in front of his peers? He had indeed underestimated his opponent a bit just now and hadn’t used his full strength, which was why it’d been countered and he’d been mocked instead.

This was an enormous humiliation for Lei Gangyang.

His body flashed as he transformed into a red blur, shooting out like a ball of ferocious flames.

“Watch my blows!”

Jiang Chen raised his arms and shot out two Fire Raven King tail feathers!

“Humph, break!” Lei Gangyang punched out with his left and right hands and swept the two attacks away. The speed of his body didn’t slow down however, and he shot swiftly towards Jiang Chen.

“Kid, you were the one who brought yourself here in search of death, don’t blame me!”

Lei Gangyang leered as his aura expanded again. He charged upwards and punched out.

Jiang Chen laughed loudly, “Well met!”

An astonishing light from a blade suddenly shot through the heavens. Jiang Chen mustered all the strength in his body, clasped both hands around the blade and circulated all his power to chop down viciously.

He hadn’t dodged or evaded, but had met the seven level spirit realm Lei Gangyang head on!

of course, Jiang Chen hadn’t been brash, but had started calculating as soon as Lei Gangyang had started moving. The attacks from the two tail feathers had been a distraction to buy himself some more time to prepare.

The true meaning of the “Vast Ocean Curren Splitter” had been incorporated into the blade. But in the momentum of meeting a fierce opponent in battle, the potential of the blade had been thoroughly unleashed.

Jiang Chen had been making his preparations all along in deploying the magnetic power to form several formless forcefields, then called upon the power of metal essence and melded it into this stroke.

It could be said that this stroke had completely surpassed the original level of meaning in the “Vast Ocean Curren Splitter” thanks to all sorts of practice and ascension.

The stroke chopped down ferociously, with an unparalleled momentum, at the peak of its power.

Lei Gangyang felt his boxing aura suddenly slowed down by a shapeless power.

At this moment, the ferocious stroke had also arrived.

The two great gouts of strength crashed fiercely into each other.

Lei Gangyang was attacking upwards and was in a disadvantageous position to begin with. Add to that his boxing aura had been reduced to sixty or seventy percent by the shapeless forcefield, not only did he not gain the upper hand when the punch and stroke met, but he was actually momentarily suppressed by that strong blade aura.

The stroke with exceedingly strong piercing powers had actually punched through the clash and was aiming for his vitals!

Lei Gangyang was greatly shocked as his left hand drew out a half circle, protecting his vitals. He hastily backed up and landed on the ground, stumbling a few steps backwards.

Jiang Chen flipped a few times in the air from the power behind the punch. When he once again landed on the wall, his chest rose unevenly and he felt his blood frothing.

“Seventh level spirit realm is worthy of its reputation alright.” Jiang Chen pushed down his churning blood as he took several breaths in, regaining control over himself. He felt some admiration for Lei Gangyang’s strength.

Ever since he’d set foot on this path, Jiang Chen had rarely come off worse in an exchange, even when he challenged others stronger than him.

Today however, he’d used his blade and all his strength to barely manage to dispel one of the other’s punches. It looked like geniuses of the seventh level were indeed domineering.

If Jiang Chen was hugely taken aback, then Lei Gangyang was the epitome of shock. He’d never thought that his fierce punch would result in only a draw and wouldn’t harm the other at all. Although he’d been attacking upwards and had been in a tough position, this was still hard for him to accept.

If Lei Gangyang was shocked, then Long Juxue and Ceng Shi were also immensely surprised. Long Juxue in particular—surprise shot through her eyes as a hint of fear finally formed in her heart.

Ever since she’d entered the Purple Sun Sect, her cultivation had expanded by leaps and bounds as her potential had been tapped to its utmost. After a while, she subconsciously felt that Jiang Chen was destined to roll around and grovel in the mundane world, destined for depravity. She would be able to easily trample him next time she met him.

It was only at this moment that she clearly realized this had all been her single sided daydreams.
