Chapter 404: Cleaving Long Juxue
“Long Juxue, I’m sure you won’t accept things if I just chop off your head with one stroke like this. What other ultimate moves do you have? Come on now, show me all of them.”

Jiang Chen’s remote voice sounded in Long Juxue’s vicinity.

There was no way to track the source of this voice. It seemed to carry in from all corners of the ring, its location completely unable to be identified.

Long Juxue’s heart sank as a frosty light streaked through her stunningly beautiful eyes. She drew her sword back to cover her vitals as she searched the surroundings with an alert expression on her face.

“Jiang Chen, what kind of man are you to be hiding and cowering like this?” A vicious tone suffused her words, but a strange tension clenched her heart.

This was because she’d discovered that Jiang Chen was different from all her previous opponents. There was a feeling that she couldn’t quite reason through everything, particularly what had happened just now. She really didn’t understand just why Jiang Chen had been able to escape from her icy blast. How could he have possibly escaped after being frozen by the azure phoenix freezing qi?

Whoosh!

A figure flashed out from behind Long Juxue.

But of course, it was Jiang Chen.

“Long Juxue, what else have you got up your sleeves? Don’t tell me that this is all that a so-called innate constitution and a genius that has all of the Purple Sun Sect’s fortunes about her has?” Jiang Chen chortled as mockery flashed through his face.

He knew this woman well, that she thought highly of herself and was very prideful. The best way to deal with this woman was to humiliate, look down on, and even completely ignore her.

In that way, this woman would rage like thunder and even fly into a fury.

Once she became incensed, her dao heart would become unstable and Jiang Chen would be able to easily trample her.

Indeed, when Long Juxue heard thus, she grew incensed. “Jiang Chen you dumb animal! You have quite a witty tongue, but I will behead your dog of a head today!”

Jiang Chen’s lips curved in a cold, arrogant arc. “Words, such words.”

He then crossed his hands in front of his chest and completely disregarded Long Juxue’s offensive posture.

She burned with the fires of rage as the flames of fury in her heart were utterly stoked.

“Jiang Chen, it’s good karma from your past life to be able to die beneath my azure phoenix freezing qi. I’ll let you know today what it means to have an innate constitution!”

Long Juxue gritted her teeth as her hatred knew no bounds.

“Long Juxue, what else can you do other than blow hot air in this moment?” Jiang Chen laughed coldly as he continued to provoke Long Juxue.

“Keeping a stiff upper lip as death stares you in the face huh? If I were you, I’d find a remote corner in which I’d never be able to find you. Perhaps you’d be able to spend the rest of your life like that if you did so. But you didn’t go along with the hand you’d been dealt in life and kept bouncing around in front of me, forgetting just how meaningless you are despite having had some fortuitous occurrences. Remember, I have an innate constitution, an unparalleled genius—and you will always be that ant in front of me!”

Long Juxue stretched out her arms after speaking as the image of an azure phoenix materialized behind her back. The image turned into six with a shake of its wings.

The six azure phoenix images transmuted into six beams of white light and landed in different places around Jiang Chen, surrounding him.

“Jiang Chen, let’s see where you can run to now!”

Long Juxue also transformed herself into six with a glare of her phoenix shaped eyes and a wavering of her body. They were real and illusionary, making it difficult for anyone to come to any conclusion.

The five copies of her and the azure phoenix images completely surrounded Jiang Chen.

Sudden, a frosty light flashed.

The freezing qi on the ground sudden increased immensely as walls three feet tall of ice immediately rose from beneath the stage.

“Jiang Chen, you seem to have some ability that enables you to travel through the ground? I’ve frozen even the ring this time, let’s see how you try to break through now!”

Long Juxue’s tone was vicious and full of killing intent.

As she spoke, the six azure phoenixes flew furiously through the sky, continuously wheeling around or shooting down beams of frosty light. Countless numbers of ice stalagmites had formed around Jiang Chen in short order, sealing off all avenues of escape.

“Let’s see how you can worm out of this one!”

Long Juxue’s six figures moved in unison as they flourished their short swords, sending beams of frosty light stabbing towards Jiang Chen.

“Pitiful little tricks!”

Jiang Chen suddenly whistled lowly as six beams of red light formed and shot explosively towards the six azure phoenixes.

“Moonshatter Flying Daggers, Brilliance Form!”

These throwing daggers weren’t ordinary weapons as they’d been made from the tail feathers of the Fire Raven King. It’d been a spirit creature at the peak of the spirit realm. When it’s tail feathers had been made into throwing daggers, they encompassed Jiang Chen’s dominating power of extreme yang.

Wham!

Six throwing daggers transformed into red light and collided with the six azure phoenixes.

Wham!

The latter were immediately broken and dispersed in shadowy pieces.

The ground around Jiang Chen suddenly started quaking urgently. Red vines began surfacing abruptly.

More than ten vines quickly appeared.

The red colored vines precisely belonged to Jiang Chen’s Bewitching Lotus of Fire and Ice, and he’d summoned forth only red fire vines this time. The Lotus had been a heavenly treasure to begin with, and was now utterly terrifying after Jiang Chen’s refinement.

The dozen lotuses all spat out astonishing flame that seemed to be a dozen rampaging dragons. They continuously crashed about and devoured, swallowing all the ice stalagmites in the span of an instant.

“Long Juxue, is that really all you’ve got now?” Jiang Chen laughed coldly as he indicated a direction with his hand. The dozen fire lotus vines all roiled towards Long Juxue.

The vines could extend and retract, could harden or remain pliable, and now that Jiang Chen had compelled them onwards, they seemed to be a dozen ropes that could contain anything in the heavens. They intersected and formed an impenetrable net, surrounding Long Juxue instantly.

“What the hell is that?” Long Juxue was shocked senseless.

She began flailing madly about with her azure short sword.

One had to say, a nine times refined spirit weapon was quite impressive indeed. The fire lotus vines were all hacked away in between the dancing of her sword. However, the lotuses also possessed incredible rejuvenation abilities.

They would immediately regrow as soon as they’d been chopped off. No matter how fast Long Juxue was, the fire lotuses were only even faster.

Jiang Chen suddenly charged forward, leading with one fist and pushing with another, sending a strong magnetic force field crashing down on Long Juxue.

Although the force field had yet to reach the levels of a magnetic storm, it was enough to affect her movement.

Long Juxue’s body halted involuntarily after coming in contact with this force field.

“What’s going on?” Long Juxue was flabbergasted as her voice drained of all color.

Jiang Chen’s speed was uncommonly fast as he deployed more and more of the magnetic force field, controlling Long Juxue’s speed.

After not too long, her speed had greatly decreased. The speed of her sword could no longer keep up with the vines’ rate of growth.

Whoosh whoosh whoosh!

Countless vines wrapped around her, trussing her up like a chicken in short order.

Jiang Chen knew that the time was nigh!

Nameless saber in hand, he called out lowly, “Long Juxue, I once said that you’re just a defeated opponent, and you always will be!”

He brandished the nameless saber and chopped downwards at her head.

“Halt!”

When Sunchaser saw this situation, his body turned into a ball of flames as he pounced forward frantically, reaching out with a hand to stop Jiang Chen’s action.

His speed was so extraordinarily fast that the other forefathers had no time to react at all.

When they saw that Sunchaser had rushed to the ring already, the others were dismayed and shocked. How would there be any chance of Jiang Chen surviving if Sunchaser made a move?

The developments of this match had truly happened in flashes of incredible moments, as quick as a bird of prey swooping down when a hare bounded upwards. The enormous rises and falls sorely tested and tied up everyone’s nerves.

Long Juxue had first frozen Jiang Chen in a domineering fashion, but he’d bafflingly disappeared without a trace.

She’d then deployed another ultimate move, and the audience had thought it would be fatal without a doubt, but Jiang Chen had dispelled it again. The vines that he’d suddenly materialized were more shocking. No one knew what this was at all.

And now, Sunchaser had decided to personally act upon seeing that Long Juxue was in danger.

Sunchaser glided through the air as he roared, “Jiang Chen, if you kill Long Juxue, I will kill you with no hesitation!”

He truly wanted to save Long Juxue, but he also knew that by the time he arrived, Jiang Chen’s stroke might have long since finished its swing.

Therefore, he could only issue verbal threats at first.

However, when his body neared the stage, his ears suddenly twitched as a surge of strength shot to his face, making his entire being tense up as he suddenly felt a life and death sense of danger.

Pfft!

The surge of strength had concentrated behind a small pinecone!

This small pinecone had come from an unknown origin and directly crashed towards Sunchaser.

He brought forth all the strength in his body in the knick of time and brought his blade in front of his chest to block.

Clang!

The immense collision force bent Sunchaser’s blade and made him topple backwards, as if a raging current had suddenly crashed into him.

A pinecone had bent the blade of a venerated origin realm cultivator and sent him flying backwards!

Sunchaser managed to regain control of his momentum with great effort and landed on his feet, but he was forced backwards two dozen steps before barely managing to stand up straight. A sweet taste welled up in his throat as he spewed out a mouthful of blood.

This sudden change threw the entire scene into disarray. The other forefathers were astonished beyond belief, stunned senseless as they looked at this unbelievable scene.

How could this be?

What was old monster Sunchaser playing at? Of the four origin realm forefathers, his strength was solidly first. With his abilities, the other three hadn’t even had time to react before rushing to the stage.

But he’d abruptly fallen down just like this??

Up on the stage, although Jiang Chen had felt Sunchaser pounce forward and fall back again, his dao heart was as calm as an ancient well, not a ripple to be scene. He complete his downswing and cold light flashed, cleaving Long Juxue straight into two!

This scorpion hearted beauty didn’t even have time to close her eyes. Her face was filled with astonishment, fear, and despair.

Bam!

The two halves of Long Juxue’s bodies crashed tragically onto the ground.

“Xue’er!” Master Xue’er was beyond distraught at witnessing this scene, and she almost fainted.

It was over just like this? A preeminent genius with an innate constitution had been hacked into two just like this?

Everyone present felt that this was surreal, not to mention Master Shuiyue.

Long Juxue had been dominant in the sky spirit realm for so long that even the original first genius Lei Gangyang had to settle for being number two beneath her power.

She had an innate constitution and possessed potential that came about once in several thousand years in the sixteen kingdom alliance—she’d been hewed in half with just one stroke? And the one who’d done so had been a secular cultivator?

All of it seemed so utterly ludicrous and sheer fantasy, but the bloodcurdling premises reminded everyone that this was real.

Sunchaser threw his head back to the skies and howled, his rage blazing to the skies, “Jiang Chen, Jiang Chen! I swear I’ll kill you!”
