410 A Different Story of a Heroic Rescue
The small world was an independent one. Since Venerables couldn't enter the secret treasure, it became the world of the Reaching Heaven States.
So people stopped feeling frightened of the young masters or ladies from big families.
Some of those who had been swallowing insults in the outside world thought they could thoroughly change their distressing lives there, so they showed their true colors.
Jiang Chen frowned at what he had heard, especially the last sentence. He thought it was Yin Shuang that was being targeted, so he charged down immediately.
His sudden intervention shocked the people below.
Four men retreated quickly. They looked surprised and terrified, with obvious guilty consciences.
They knew as well if what they had done was known by others, they would absolutely be killed once they left the small world.
But when they found Jiang Chen was alone, they relaxed right away. Their looks became fiercer.
Jiang Chen only cared about the woman they were dealing with, who had turned out to be Yue Lansheng instead of Yin Shuang.
The woman was very calm. Only her look was a little off.
"Buddy, don't ask for trouble!"
"There are no other people here. You don't have to pretend to be upright. This is one of the Four Beauties. We wouldn't even get the chance to speak to her if we were outside."
The four rascals approached him, threatening him and at the same time tempting him.
"I'm not an animal full of wicked thoughts." Jiang Chen smiled and touched his black knife with his right hand. He said, "This is your last chance to leave. If you leave now, you can live."
The four were struck dumb. Then they glanced at each other and smiled sarcastically.
"Before talking big, think about your strength first."
"How dare a weak Cloud Three threaten us? You don't want to live anymore, do you?"
The average state of the four rascals was Cloud Five, and they had more people, so they thought they were at an advantage.
"I won't say the same thing twice," said Jiang Chen.
"Huh, you're just bluffing! Go to hell!"
However, these people wouldn't listen to him. They dashed towards him, full of killing intent. Their attacks were cruel enough to kill Jiang Chen.
"In that case…"
Jiang Chen shook his head and drew the black knife out as he streaked by like lightning, serious and stern. He brandished his knife towards the four and took their lives.
It was worth mentioning that they hadn't even clearly seen Jiang Chen's movement and didn't have any idea that they were dying.
They only felt like they couldn't move anymore. Then they felt pain and weakness, and in the end, fell onto the ground.
Jiang Chen wiped the blood off his blade. He found he had grown so used to killing that he wasn't feeling anything.
Suddenly, he noticed Yue Lansheng staring at him with an odd expression.
"What?" Jiang Chen shrugged his shoulders. He didn't know why she was doing it.
"You're shameless," Yue Lansheng said with disdain.
"What?" Jiang Chen thought he had heard wrong.
"Stop wasting your time on me. I'm not interested in someone like you."
Then she turned around, intending to leave.
"Wait!" Jiang Chen shouted coldly and asked, "What do you mean? I've made a mistake to save you? I should have let you be raped?"
"Huh, you think I don't know what you're scheming on? You called these people here and then put on an act of a heroic rescue. Then you did away with the witnesses. What a dirty move," Yue Lansheng said, staring at him.
Jiang Chen was so angry that he burst into laughter. He said, "You think so highly of yourself."
"Did I say something wrong? Weren't you playing cat and mouse with me when you said those things outside? Then in here you rescued me. You thought I would fall in love with you like this? Ridiculous."
Yue Lansheng had a beautiful name and a beautiful voice, but what she said didn't deserve any compliments.
"We've been here for less than ten minutes, and our positions have been assigned randomly. You think I was able to arrange all this?" Jiang Chen asked.
It was a good question. Yue Lansheng couldn't figure out how he had done it.
"Although I don't know how you did it, you must have your ways, now that you've even managed to ask Yin Shuang to join your act," Yue Lansheng said.
Jiang Chen didn't know what to say. This woman was completely living in her own world.
He knew no matter what he said, it wouldn't work. The only thing he could do was stay away from her.
"The man I love must be in the top three of List A of the Dragon Rise List. Don't waste your time on me."
However, Yue Lansheng spoke to him in a pitiful tone.
"I swear I won't," said Jiang Chen.
"I told you, your way wouldn't work," Yue Lansheng said unhappily.
"All right. All right. You're pretty. You're so pretty. Are you happy now?" Jiang Chen flew away, trying to get away from her.
At the same time, on a mountain, Leng Chuixue was feeling with his eyes closed.
"He's moving," he murmured to himself. When he opened his eyes, he looked in the direction where Jiang Chen was.
It turned out that when they had been quarreling, he had left a traceable demon seal on Jiang Chen through a secret method of the Evil Cloud Palace.
His goal was simple—to kill Jiang Chen—because Jiang Chen had killed Liu Shayang.
It wasn't because he once had a good relationship with Liu Shayang, but because he wasn't happy with the rumors.
After Liu Shayang's death, the people of the Dragon Field believed his hidden strength could have ranked him sixth or seventh on the Slay Demon List.
That was to say that he, Leng Chuixue, was worse than Liu Shayang. As proud as he was, this was unacceptable. He would prove to everyone they were wrong in the simplest and most violent way.
Liu Shayang had concealed his strength, but his strength had been underestimated, too.
His prerogative was to kill Jiang Chen as number seven on the Slay Demon List.
"Jiang Chen, enjoy your last days."
Leng Chuixue flew towards where Jiang Chen was.
At the same time, Jiang Chen had just calmed down from his heated encounter with Yue Lansheng. He focused his mind on the secret treasure.
Crimson Moon had told him that when the Dragon Dynasty had been eliminated, they had separated the treasure into several parts and sent people to hide them all over the continent.
The ditch outside the Flying Dragon City was the first place.
The treasure must be good. The Dragon Dynasty was counting on it to rise again.
Jiang Chen knew it wouldn't work if he ran around like a headless chicken, so he started to analyze the whole situation.
He was sure that the ward out of the ditch had been exposed intentionally by someone.
The Evil Cloud Palace's founders are surviving supporters of the Dragon Dynasty.
If Crimson Moon knows the map of the secret treasure, the Evil Cloud Palace must know it, too, but since they were unable to crack the ward by themselves, they took advantage of the Dragon Field to do it?
So why now? What're they plotting?
Suddenly, Jiang Chen sensed there were people approaching. He held back his energy and hid in the dark.
"Jiang Chen, come out! I know you're here!"
To his surprise, Leng Chuixue's voice came from the air.
This man seemed to dislike him a lot. He had been arguing with Jiang Chen outside. After having entered the small world, he came after the latter again. His aggressive look suggested he was well-prepared.
"Are you courting death? You came to me before I got a chance to go to you."
Jiang Chen wasn't afraid of him at all. He flew into the air confidently.
