1010 Iron Army
While Third Uncle Jiang looked Jiang Chen up and down, Tianluo City's Master informed him of what had happened a while ago.
When Third Uncle Jiang heard about the four demons and the two Heavenly Kings, he was obviously surprised. But it was still limited to just this alone. He was a Martial Emperor, and regardless of how shocking had been Jiang Chen's performance, he wouldn't value him too much.
"Young master, many thanks. May I ask for your name?" However, Third Uncle Jiang was still quite polite to Jiang Chen.
"Jiang Chen!" Jiang Chen was dissatisfied with what Third Uncle Jiang had said to Jiang Yi, and this was why he gave just a cold response.
However, Third Uncle Jiang just assumed that Jiang Chen was a haughty and arrogant youngster and was quite displeased.
"Since you are all right, I will take my leave because I still have an important matter to attend to," Jiang Chen said.
"Even though the Jiang family suffered from the chaos of war, it is still a powerful ancient family. Since you saved Fei'er, we surely mustn't let you just walk away empty-handed," Third Uncle Jiang said. "What do you want? You can go ahead and just ask."
Third Uncle Jiang still possessed great pride as a member of an ancient family, even though they were just a branch of the true Jiang family.
"I didn't help them for a reward, but I still appreciate your kind intentions," Jiang Chen said.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
"Fine, the Jiang family owe you a favor, and you can seek us at any time," Third Uncle Jiang said.
"Third Master, I will go back to report the completion of the mission." Jiang Yi didn't want to continue staying here because she had just been rebuked. She didn't wait for his reply and followed Jiang Chen. She wanted to leave with him and thank him properly.
"Wait! Fei'er has almost suffered an accident because of your wrong decision. You have made a grave mistake. Yet you still want to leave this easily?" Third Uncle Jiang unexpectedly didn't just want to reprimand her, he wanted to adopt punitive measures.
"I just obeyed a military order and executed it, and I also took part in raiding the city to save people. What mistake did I make?" Jiang Yi couldn't bear it any longer and answered back loudly.
"Since I said that you made a mistake, then it's surely the case. Moreover, who had issued such a military order? It was just a person who snatched the position illegitimately," Third Uncle Jiang shouted.
Such words caught Jiang Chen's attention, and it was especially the case for the last words.
"Third Master, our Iron Army is neutral," Jiang Yi said coldly.
"Humph! You sided with that b*stard and tried to harm Fei'er. Yet, you still have face to say that you are neutral?"
"I braved death and entered the city. So how can you say that I intended to harm him?"
"If you fought to the death, I wouldn't have anything to say. But you are still living well. Isn't this quite suspicious?"
"Your words are too harsh and vicious."
Upon hearing those two people arguing, Tianluo City's Master and the others looked very concerned.
Jiang Fei wanted to ask him to spare her, but was stopped by the old servant next to him.
"Someone, go and capture her!" Third Uncle Jiang shouted.
The squadron who came with him obeyed his order and walked toward Jiang Yi. Jiang Yi was infuriated, and she held her long spear.
"Do you still want to resist? Do you want me to execute you on the spot?" Third Uncle Jiang shouted.
Jiang Yi's face turned pale. She didn't have any hope left since a Martial Emperor was here.
"You want to use me to blackmail my father, don't you?" Jiang Yi said.
Third Uncle Jiang didn't refute this and just revealed a mysterious smile.
When Jiang Yi was just about to be captured, Jiang Chen strode forward and protected her behind him.
The soldiers coming for her stopped in their tracks, and they didn't dare to make a rash move.
"Young master Jiang Chen, what do you mean by this?" Third Uncle Jiang didn't seem surprised by this and just revealed an ice-cold smile.
"It seems like you are aware who I am," Jiang Chen said.
"Well? Isn't your name Jiang Chen?"
Even though Third Uncle Jiang seemed crude, he was still quite shrewd. When he heard the reason why Jiang Chen intervened and his reaction when he witnessed Jiang Fei, he had already realized that Jiang Chen had ended up saving the wrong person by mistake.
If it was in peacetime, he would be satisfied with this. But now, the Jiang family was suffering from civil strife, and if the person Jiang Chen wanted to save was their enemy, what should he do then? When he heard the name Jiang Chen, he already ascertained that he might be right because the b*stard mentioned by him had also come from the Three Middle Realms.
"Use Young Master Fei to threaten him," Jiang Yi transmitted her voice to Jiang Chen.
However, it seemed like the old servant saw through her intentions and protected Jiang Fei behind him, before he carried him inside of the residence.
"Why are you doing this?" They could still hear Jiang Fei's voice as he was brought inside the residence.
It was obvious that he didn't realize how complicated this affair was.
Third Uncle Jiang wanted to dispose of Jiang Chen and take down Jiang Yi. He wanted to kill two birds with a single stone.
"I want to protect her. This is what I want," Jiang Chen said.
A warm feeling welled up in Jiang Yi's heart. Third Uncle Jiang had fallen out with her mercilessly, yet a stranger like Jiang Chen who she had met by chance spoke for her.
"Fine, we can call it even between us. You can both leave," Third Uncle Jiang said.
Upon hearing this, neither Jiang Chen or Jiang Yi moved. They were aware that this affair wasn't this simple.
"What? You don't want to leave?" Third Uncle Jiang spoke in mockery.
"Fine, let's leave," Jiang Chen said.
Jiang Yi said to him at the same time, "He will look for a secluded place where he can attack us."
"I know," Jiang Chen replied.
"You should start running without stop after we leave. I will help you and obstruct him," Jiang Yi said.
"There isn't any need for this. Moreover, you can't obstruct him for a long time."
After they left the city, they flew to a mountain.
"Are you sure you don't need it." Jiang Yi noticed that Jiang Chen didn't plan to escape, and she became quite anxious, while she still pondered inwardly whether he had any hidden trump card.
"Can you inform me of the Jiang family's internal strife?" Jiang Chen didn't care about the crisis they were facing and started asking curiously.
If Jiang Chen hadn't said the words I will protect her previously, Jiang Yi wouldn't have informed him of this.
They were an ancient family, and, even though they were just a branch of the real family, they still had several Sacred Lords left even after the Sacred Zone was sealed. It was a pity that matters hadn't developed as they wished. The Sacred Lords didn't die while fighting. They all suffered miserable deaths while tempering themselves outside. As for the last Sacred Lord, his life span was completely exhausted.
With a Sacred Lord's usual life span, he should be able to live for more than 500 years. But, when the Sacred Zone was sealed, the Sacred Lord, who was on the verge of dying from old age, had already lived for several hundred years.
"In the past years, the Jiang family has been divided into two factions, and they all have spent their time arguing about which was the most legitimate branch even though they were both just branch families. In the past, when Sacred Lords were still present, the factions' fight depended on the number of their Sacred Lords. However, after they weren't restrained by Sacred Lords any longer, the two factions' anger, which had been repressed for several hundred years, erupted. The person who you wanted to save was probably Jiang Fan, who had been sent here from the Three Middle Realms. Is that right?" Jiang Yi asked.
"That's right. I didn't expect that I would end up saving his opponent. It's really embarrassing!" If Jiang Chen had been aware of it earlier, he wouldn't have intervened.
"No, he's just a little master, and it's his big brother who is Lil Fan's true opponent."
Jiang Chen nodded and said, "What is the Iron Army you talked about?"
"One of the Sacred Lords was worried that the Jiang family would end up destroyed by internal strife and formed a neutral faction."
"Why did you then try to save that little master?" Jiang Chen asked curiously.
"We have a neutral standing, and we care about the Jiang family's well-being."
"If the little master was captured by the Blood Sand School and Nether World Hall, a great disaster would await the Jiang family."
"This is really the case."
At this moment, Jiang Chen raised his head and looked in the direction of Tianluo City and said, "That guy is coming."
Jiang Yi's expression changed, and she clenched her fists nervously.
"Don't worry, we won't die today," Jiang Chen said.
"Okay!" Jiang Yi nodded. Jiang Chen's words possessed a special charm and helped her calm down.
It was really as Jiang Chen had said. Third Uncle Jiang came by himself. He was riding the warhorse, which galloped in the sky, and every step it took left flames in the air.
