577 Those from the Realm of Nine Heavens
The three became closer after the affair of Apprentice Brother He.
Jiang Chen learned the two women were from Yunlan School, one of the top
ten schools. Furthermore, they were also of the direct line of descent of the
Four Great Aristocratic Families.
Tang Shiya and Tang Ru'er were surprised to know Jiang Chen was from the
Realm of Nine Heavens.
In their eyes, the Realm of Nine Heavens was so remote and so poor that
someone like Jiang Chen couldn't be from there.
However, he was from there indeed. They had to believe it.
Two more days passed. The three finally arrived at the Holy Martial Arts City.
This was absolutely a metropolitan. And it was one of the most special cities
Jiang Chen had ever seen.
Buildings of different styles were situated on the same street, as if there was
an architecture contest, but it wasn't easy to pick out the most beautiful one.
At the moment, the whole city was talking about the Great Competition of
Three Realms. Young Venerables were everywhere.
A sweet voice came from overhead as soon as the three entered the city.
"The Great Competition of Three Realms won't use a round-based
competition system. Young Venerables who are gonna take part in the
competition need to register first and follow our instructions."
The voice came repeatedly every a few seconds. It could be heard in any part
of the city.
"Jiang Chen, go ahead to register. I'm gonna exchange for the upper-grade
yuan stones first to settle the account."
Tang Shiya said, "Or you can go with me together."
"That's not necessary. I trust you," Jiang Chen said. He actually didn't want
the change, but since she insisted, he couldn't say no.
The two sisters nodded at him and then left.
Following the road signs, Jiang Chen came to a registration center in the city.
There were several registration centers in the Holy Martial Arts City. The one
closest to Jiang Chen was in a large house with a big yard.
The door was open. Jiang Chen walked in and saw many young Venerables
in there, bustling around.
Precisely speaking, 80 percent of the people in the yard were Venerables.
This is the Realm of True Force.
Jiang Chen thought to himself.
He somehow felt eager to fight. Since he had become Venerable, he hadn't
had any good fight yet.
He walked up to a long table, about to say something to the man there.
"You must register with your real name and real origin. No falsification is
allowed. Otherwise, if any information found to be false, even if you've got the
first place, you'll be disqualified and receive a severe punishment!"
The middle-aged man sitting behind the table was only in the Reaching
Heaven State, but he didn't show Jiang Chen any respect.
Maybe it was because he had dealt with too many Martial Venerables, or
maybe he had a great background.
Or maybe both.
"Jiang Chen, from the Realm of Nine Heavens," Jiang Chen said.
"Realm of Nine Heavens?"
The middle-aged man looked up in surprise, staring at Jiang Chen with his
"Such a young Venerable is from the Realm of Nine Heavens?"
He sounded puzzled. Then he said in a cold voice, "Although rules will be
bent for people from the Realm of Nine Heavens, if you're not from there but
tell us you are, you'll be punished as what I told you just now. Are you clear of
"Li Yun, why did you even bother to ask him? If he wants to cheat, just let him
cheat. Besides, we're having a Martial Venerable from the Realm of Nine
Heavens in the limelight, aren't we? What's his name?"
Before Jiang Chen could respond, the guy sitting next to the middle-aged man
"Ning Haotian. He defeated An Hu with only one spear attack, but he's even
younger," the man called Li Yun said with hesitation.
Jiang Chen smiled upon hearing this name.
Then, giving a knock on his own head, he asked, "Any problem?"
As he spoke, his look turned sharp.
"No, no problem."
Looking into his eyes, Li Yun was shocked. He turned pale and hurried to
shake his head.
He hadn't come back to normal until Jiang Chen had finished his registration.
"Li Yun, how lame you are."
The guy next to him said unhappily, "Why are you afraid of a guy from the
Realm of Nine Heavens? We're from the Sacred Martial Arts Institute."
"You don't know."
Li Yun swallowed his saliva. Gazing at where Jiang Chen had left, he said
with fright, "His look was really dreadful. I felt like his eyes had turned red."
However, no one believed him. They even laughed at him.
Jiang Chen's killing intent was gone as he left, and he was smiling.
He recalled what Fang Zixiong had said in the Water Dragon City.
In the Realm of True Force, even Reaching Heaven States had the nerve to
challenge Martial Venerables without any background.
Then he followed the instructions and came to another big house in the city.
Young Venerables would live here after the registration so that the organizer
could make arrangements and manage everything.
By then this house had drawn the most attention in the center area.
Many people were gathering on the street where the house was. Most of them
They reacted plainly when Jiang Chen walked over. Not until they saw him
walking towards the gate of the house did they feel surprised.
"Is he also a participant? At such a young age?"
They had thought him just a bystander instead of a young Venerable.
"Not only young, but also good-looking."
"Yeah, and he is so elegant."
"I'm curious how good he is."
Jiang Chen's clothing was always simple and average. Many people had
despised him because of that.
But this was the latest trend in fashion in the Realm of True Force. Only
inexperienced people would dress battle suits.
Most people would make simple clothes with fabrics that could be used to
make battle suits.
That was why many girls were attracted to Jiang Chen. They were all
guessing who he was and where he was from.
"He must be a swordsman."
A girl about 15 or 16 years old found Jiang Chen very attractive. She put her
hands on her chest when she had seen him, feeling dizzy.
Jiang Chen walked onto the steps, about to walk into the gate.
"Your Sacred Martial Arts Token."
Two serious-looking muscular men in the peak of the Reaching Heaven State
were standing at the gate. They frowned when they had seen Jiang Chen.
Especially when they had heard those women's shrieks coming from the
street, they frowned more.
So they sounded extremely cold.
Muscular men usually didn't like good-looking thin men, because they didn't
think them manly enough.
In their opinion, real men should be as strong and as serious as them.
Jiang Chen got the Sacred Martial Arts Token when he had registered
successfully. It represented the entry of the Great Competition of Three
He didn't bother to make a fuss about their tones. He just showed them his
Sacred Martial Arts Token.
It was a wooden token endowed with a mysterious power, carved with his
name. And they could see his origin on the back of it.
"Realm of Nine Heavens?"
The man on the left saw that immediately. He showed an odd smile.
Throwing the token back to Jiang Chen in a casual way, he said, "Go through
the back door."
Jiang Chen intentionally didn't catch the token, letting it fall onto the ground.
"Back door?" He looked emotionless. His voice was cold.
"Yeah. Didn't you hear him? We don't open doors for those from the Realm of
Nine Heavens," the other man shouted.
"Realm of Nine Heavens?"
The bystanders also heard. They were all surprised.
After an awkward silence, an arrogant laugh came.
"He turns out...he turns out to come from the Realm of Nine Heavens."
