Chapter 2083: A Battle to the Last Drop of Blood
Moreover, the supreme Godkings who arrived later brought with them some news. Not only did many people on the tenth floor learn about the girl protected by the world, but even the experts on the eleventh floor had learnt of this news as well.
The news directly spread towards the twelfth floor.
In short, Xiao Man’s existence had shaken up the entire Neptunean Divine Palace.
The more regular Godkings who did not possess particularly outstanding strength eyed the Chaotic Prime’s legacy and all the God Tier heavenly resources on Jian Chen.
As for the supreme Godkings, they all targeted Xiao Man. The fact that Xiao Man was able to receive the protection of the world prompted many thoughts in all the supreme Godkings as they all reached various possible conclusions.
Jian Chen and Kai Ya finally escaped from the ninth floor under the pursuit of so many Godkings and returned to the eighth floor.
The eighth floor was a huge world of volcanoes. Below them was an endless stretch of volcanoes and red-hot lava that formed oceans. They radiated with terrifying heat.
The lava was so hot that it could easily melt supreme quality saint artifacts. Even some god artifacts of poorer quality would not be able to last for too long in the lava. It was extremely terrifying.
Pieces of black rocks of various sizes floated in the lava like islands. They never melted nor did they sink, enduring the terrifying heat of the lava the entire time.
These black rocks were God Tier materials, Pyrnite Ore, and they were high quality God Tier materials. They were extremely valuable, enough for countless people to grow envious over, but no one was able to even take away a tiny piece of it, supreme Godkings included.
“Right now, we only have one path of retreat, and that’s the sea of lava,” Jian Chen hovered in the air as he stared at the lava sternly.
The lava was extremely terrifying, hot enough to burn worlds. When his Chaotic Body was still at the eleventh layer, he could not approach the sea of lava at all. All he could do was look at it from afar.
Now, even after reaching the twelfth layer, he still did not have complete confidence that his body would be able to endure the might of the lava.
“Quick, enter the tower. The tower should be able to keep us safe in the lava.” Jian Chen immediately took out the Anatta Tower. Under his control, it suddenly expanded and hovered in the air. Its broken door opened as he urged Kai Ya.
Kai Ya knew that time was tight, so she did not hesitate at all. She immediately wanted to enter the tower. However, at this moment, a terrifying pulse of energy appeared behind her. A huge pole extended from the distance, where it was several dozen kilometers long as it smacked towards Jian Chen with terrifying force.
A supreme Godking had come down from the ninth floor to the eighth floor and had attacked Jian Chen without any hesitation at all.
“God artifact!” Jian Chen’s face changed slightly as he recognised the long pole to be a god artifact as well in a single instance.
Moreover, due to the fact that the wielder was a true supreme Godking, the might of the god artifact had completely exceeded mister Shu’s Cataclysmic Onyxwind Fan.
Jian Chen was stern. He circulated his Chaotic Force as he suddenly stabbed out to block the pole.
With that, Jian Chen’s body shook violently. The force in the pole was far greater than he had imagined. Right now, he only felt his entire right arm grow numb as a supreme power moved through his arm and spread through his body. He felt like all his bones were about to shatter.
Suddenly, an azure streak of light shot over. A flying sword shot towards Kai Ya with a long, azure tail of light.
Following the sword were five other powerful attacks that targeted Jian Chen and Kai Ya.
The seven supreme Godkings had already come down from the ninth floor, and they struck out mercilessly.
Behind the seven of them was a great group of Godkings with various strength. They surged in all directions, tightly enclosing Jian Chen and Kai Ya.
Jian Chen became extremely grim. The attacks of these supreme Godkings were just too powerful. Even with the Chaotic Body, he needed to avoid these people as opponents, not to mention that there were even people among them with god artifacts.
However, he could not flee or avoid them in the current situation. Without any other choice, he moved the Anatta Tower before him to block the attacks.
With a deafening rumble, the attacks of the supreme Godkings all landed on the Anatta Tower. The terrifying storm of energy caused the lava below to churn as many volcanoes in the surroundings immediately erupted.
The Anatta Tower stood unwavering in the sky, without moving at all. The attacks of the supreme Godkings were indeed very terrifying, but they were nowhere close to shaking the Anatta Tower.
“Get in there!” Jian Chen called out. The situation was urgent right now, so he grabbed Kai Ya by the shoulder forcefully and tossed her in there.
The seven supreme Godkings had already approached him now, and they surrounded Jian Chen. Every single one of them radiated with tremendously terrifying presences that surged into the sky. They were extremely powerful.
“Jian Chen, we only want the girl. If you hand over the girl, there won’t be any trouble for you,” said a woman among the seven people. Her voice was cold and possessed an irrefutable sense of prestige.
The seven of them maintained a certain distance from Jian Chen as they all remained cautious and vigilant inside. Clearly, they were preparing themselves for Jian Chen’s Profound Sword Qi.
However, the seven people were not on the same side. They were not a united group. When the woman spoke, a black-clothed, cold-faced man swung his black metal pole from several kilometers away. The pole suddenly expanded by ten kilometers and struck towards Jian Chen mercilessly with the might of a god artifact and surging energy.
“A member of our Bai clan was killed in the Divine Medicinal Garden. Whether this person hands over the girl or not, he will die,” the pole-wielding man said coldly with killing intent.
A cold light flickered through Jian Chen’s eyes. He did not use the Anatta Tower to block the strike. Instead, he used the second strand of Profound Sword Qi without any hesitation at all.
As soon as the Profound Sword Qi appeared, it turned into a blinding streak of white light as it shot towards the man with terrifying sword intent that was enough to shake up the world.
As soon as the Profound Sword Qi appeared, the supreme Godkings showed angst. Even though it was not directed towards them, they did not dare to be careless. They could not help but retreat even further away from the several kilometers they maintained from Jian Chen initially.
Cang Ying, who had personally witnessed the might of the Profound Sword Qi, showed even more fear. With a flash, he instantly retreated to over a hundred kilometers away.
The eyes of the man with the pole suddenly narrowed while his god artifact that targeted Jian Chen changed its trajectory in that instance. He wanted to disperse the Profound Sword Qi as he retreated.
However, the Profound Sword Qi was just too fast. Distance seemed to be non-existent before it, where even though they were separated by several kilometers, it seemed like he was only inches away for the Profound Sword Qi, which was nothing at all. His metal pole was unable to block it in time.
At that critical moment, a suit of armor appeared on the man, covering his body completely.
This was a supreme quality saint artifact. He wanted to block the Profound Sword Qi with that.
However, the Profound Sword Qi was no regular sword Qi. It was a sword technique the old master of the sword spirits created, and it was one that had reached the peak of God Tier. It borrowed from the mysteries of the world, condensed from the Laws of the Sword combined with human vitality, so its way of damaging people was different. It directly ignored the saint artifact and punched through his armor and into his soul.
“Argh!” The man could not help but wail out as his soul suffered unimaginable damage at that moment. He directly fell out of the sky as he endured the excruciating pain in his soul.
Just when the man was about to fall into the lava, a Godking from the Bai clan flew over from behind and caught him.
“What a terrifying secret technique!” Aside from Cang Ying, the five other supreme Godkings all experienced chills. The Profound Sword Qi was far more terrifying than they had imagined it to be.
