Chapter 2801: The Essence Blood Exposed
In that instant, the surging red light from the five arrows of vital energy enveloped the five of them.
The expressions of Chu Jie, Zhou Zhi, Kong Feiying, Zhao Wenbin, and Gong Ruize changed drastically. They had already witnessed the horrors of the vital energy before. That was a terrifying power that could make the entire world pale. They had already been frightened to their wit’s end.
And more importantly, they had already guessed that the vital energy was probably connected to a Grand Exalt’s legacy, or maybe it was the power that Grand Exalts possessed.
Before such high level power, even if they had the Primordial realm formations, they were helpless, let alone the fact that the Primordial realm formations were already in shambles. Their strength had reverted to its previous state, making them even more helpless before a power they believed to have reached the level of Grand Exalts already.
This was all because they were insufficiently powerful. Otherwise, if a Primordial realm expert was present, they would probably be able to see through the disguise of the five arrows of vital energy under Jian Chen’s control.
“Yang Yutian, I am a core disciple of the Yuqiong sect. I possess esteemed status within the Yuqiong sect. If you kill me, the Yuqiong sect will never spare you!” As the terrifying vital energy enveloped him, the life-threatening danger finally made Zhou Zhi’s spirit collapse. He barked out fearfully, clearly trying to bargain for his life.
“Yang Yutian, I’ll clean the slate with you right now, right now. I definitely won’t cause you anymore problems in the future. I just hope you can stop immediately.” Under the threat of death, Gong Ruize temporarily tossed his pride aside too, begging for mercy despite the humiliation and reluctance he felt. That was what he said, but resentment and intense killing intent was still hidden within the depths of his eyes.
Kong Feiying of the Cangqiong clan and Zhao Wenbin of the Zhou family communicated with him secretly too. They had all paled from fright, as they could sense the presence of death that made their very souls tremble from the powerful vital energy.
Even with the sacrificial Godkings they had brought with them, even with the protection of the supreme quality saint artifacts on them, they did even feel a hint of safety before this presence of death.
However, Jian Chen ignored their pleas. His gaze was cold and his killing intent was resolute. Controlling the tiny strands of sword Qi masked by the vital energy, he plunged it mercilessly into their heads.
Silently, the tiny strands of sword Qi vanished into their foreheads.
This was a terrifying power that could even kill Primordial realm experts. Before this power, the five of them were obviously unable to put up any resistance at all as mere Godkings.
In that instant, Chu Jie, Kong Feiying, Zhou Zhi, Gong Ruize, and Zhao Wenbin’s souls shattered. They died on the spot.
Afterwards, the vital energy immediately entered their heads through the wound on their foreheads, leaving behind a slight trace to make it seem like they had died to the vital energy.
The vital energy that filled the surroundings gradually dispersed. When the surroundings cleared up once more, Chu Jie, Zhou Zhi, Kong Feiying, Gong Ruize, and Zhao Wenbin had already been reduced to corpses, laying as still as a log on the ground. The sacrificial Godkings they had brought with them became stunned with absolutely no idea about what to do.
As for Jian Chen, he seemed like all his energy had been drained away. Not only was his presence feeble, but his life force flickered, as if it had already run out. Afterwards, he shut his eyes and collapsed on the ground, falling unconscious.
As he fainted, the droplet of essence blood from the ancient Skywolf within his body seemed to break free from some kind of restraint. The pure vital energy erupted from the constraints of Jian Chen’s body, directly leaking out and revolving around him.
At the same time, the droplet of essence blood seemed to develop a mind of its own, moving slowly through Jian Chen’s body before arriving in his mouth at the very end. It was as if it wanted to break free from Jian Chen’s control and fly out.
However, Jian Chen clenched his teeth, using his mouth as a prison to block its only way out. The essence blood was trapped in there.
Right now, Jian Chen had completely lowered his guard. Stealing this droplet of Grand Exalt’s essence blood would not require much cultivation at all. One only had to pry open Jian Chen’s mouth gently, and the essence blood would be theirs.
Nearby, the Scion of Five Point stared at the unconscious Jian Chen. He could sense the item radiating with pure vital energy from Jian Chen’s mouth as he hesitated.
Even though he had failed to recognise this to be the essence blood of a Grand Exalt, he knew it was something impressive. Making up his mind, he appeared beside Jian Chen instantly.
“Piss off! I don’t care who you are, but if you take Yang Yutian’s possessions, I’ll hunt you down to the ends of the earth. I won’t even spare your sect.”
Just as the Scion of Five Point was about to retrieve the essence blood from Jian Chen’s mouth, Jin Hong’s furious voice rolled over.
He had turned into a streak of light, crossing the last thousand kilometers extremely quickly. His aura surged, vaguely resembling a valiant, running, silver wolf. He directly headbutted towards the Scion of Five Point like he was unstoppable.
And, when they collided, the space rippled under the great power, like a pebble had been tossed into a calm lake.
The space there was under the interference of Jin Hong’s power. Even though it was not a particularly great interference, it would be difficult to use the Laws of Space unless their comprehension had surpassed Jin Hong’s cultivation.
The Scion of Five Point’s expression changed. He immediately became sterner than he had ever been before. He was confident in himself, but he also knew about Jin Hong’s renowned title as the successor of a Grand Exalt.
Even within the vast Saints’ World, successors of Grand Exalts were extremely resplendent figures. Although he was still not particularly powerful, no one could afford to brush him aside.
Faced with someone like him, the Scion of Five Point obviously refused to be careless. Even though he was unable to control space as he wished under Jin Hong’s interference, the power of the laws was still unaffected.
With the Laws of Space in one hand and the Laws of Time in the other, he merged them between his hands, which was much more complicated than simple addition. He launched a strike at Jin Hong with his full strength.
Within the great rumble, the Scion of Five Point was struck viciously by the silver wolf that Jin Hong had become. Not only had his attack failed to harm the silver wolf, but he was even knocked far away instead, spurting with blood. His ribs had completely shattered, and his entire chest caved in. The terrifying force shook his organs to pieces.
The Scion of Five Point coughed up many mouthfuls of blood. He stared at Jin Hong deeply and fearfully before fleeing for his life without even looking back. He left the range where space was under Jin Hong’s interference, and he immediately pulsed with the powers of space. He vanished in a single instant.
Jin Hong did not chase after him. He had not even looked at the Scion of Five Point properly the entire time. His eyes had remained fixed on the unconscious Jian Chen on the ground the entire time. His eyes were filled with undisguisable shock and disbelief.
He was the successor of the ancient Skywolf, the one closest to the ancient Skywolf in the current age. It was even possible to say he was the most intimate with the ancient Skywolf. As a result, he recognised the origins of the pulses of vitality from Jian Chen in a single glance.
This left him shocked, extremely shocked. His heart surged violently without any signs of settling down.
In that moment, he even began to wonder whether there was anything wrong with his senses. He doubted whether his eyes were working. He even wondered whether he was dreaming.
That was because he actually sensed the existence of a droplet of the ancient Skywolf’s essence blood from Yang Yutian.
This was essence blood, not regular blood. It was far, far more precious than regular blood. The two could not even be compared to each other.
He had sensed that Yang Yutian possessed something that his bloodline desired several times now. Jin Hong had come up with numerous possibilities for the reason behind this, reaching many different conclusions.
However, never did he imagine that the item that riled up his bloodline on Yang Yutian was actually a droplet of the ancient Skywolf’s essence blood.
The shock that the essence blood had caused Jin Hong even made it impossible for him to avert his attention towards the five prodigies who had already died.
