1675 Supreme Venerable
Many of the Venerable Sovereigns who had fought Jiang Chen now just wanted to kneel and thank him for not killing them. If his sword had attacked them, they wouldn't have survived.
However, a Supreme Venerable was indeed a Supreme Venerable. The Supreme Venerable from the wizard race had fallen from the sky after being struck by Jiang Chen's sword.
However, after the true fire of the sun, which had almost destroyed heaven and earth, dispersed, everyone was able to see a shocking sight: the Supreme Venerable from the wizard race had remained standing. He didn't look great, but he was still standing.
His armor had melted and was sticking to his flesh. There wasn't even an inch of his skin that had not been impacted by Jiang Chen's strike. Fire was still burning on some parts of his body.
His entire body had been affected. Almost all of his hair all over his body had been burned off. He resembled nothing more than a monster.
"There is no one in heaven or on earth who can save you now." An ice-cold voice that sounded as if it had traveled all the way from h*ll came out of his mouth.
Immediately, right before the onlookers' eyes, the skin of the Supreme Venerable started moving around in a jiggly way. It was recovering at such a fast speed that it could clearly be observed. Then his hair regrew. Last, but not least, his body was covered by a new battle costume.
Then he let out a long breath, and black soot poured out of this mouth. He then coughed a few times, and it appeared as if the insides of his body were recovering as well.
All this was accomplished in half an hour.
"Is that the wizard race's undying body?"
"It must be, but I thought that to achieve the undying body was quite impossible now."
"This Supreme Venerable has only achieved the Restoration of Blood and Flesh."
Some of the people who were well-informed about the accomplishments of Supreme Venerables were thinking these thoughts to themselves. All the other onlookers were simply frightened by this Extraordinary Supreme Venerable's skills.
The next moment, a vigorous force exploded from the Supreme Venerable's body. He'd unleashed an attack that was definitely life-threatening.
"That is enough!"
The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster stood in front of Jiang Chen. He looked at the Supreme Venerable from the wizard race and said, "This is definitely not what you meant by teaching."
"Stand aside, I will only say this one more time," said the Supreme Venerable in an ice-cold voice.
"I'm ready to experience the warrior's strength of the wizard race."
The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster didn't step aside. A monstrous Demon aura exploded from his body.
Looking at the two races that were both famous for their strength, the wizard race and the Demon race, about to engage in an epic battle, many of the onlookers were full of extreme excitement.
"Enough, do you guys want this situation to get worse?"
However, the Supreme Venerable from the human race stepped in to stop them in time. No one was going to be able to watch this contest.
The Supreme Venerable from the wizard race didn't want to let it go. However, he was obviously afraid of the Supreme Venerable from the human race. So he just stood there sulking, with a miserable look on his face.
"You asked for this situation, and now you want to restore your dignity? I'm afraid it won't make a difference even if you kill him."
The Supreme Venerable from the human race spoke in a calm voice. "If you want to prove the strength of Supreme Venerables, then let me do it instead, since he and I are both humans."
After he'd heard those words, the Supreme Venerable from the wizard race realized he couldn't do anything about Jiang Chen today.
It wasn't because he had no chance of winning against the Supreme Venerable of the human race, but, after suffering a heavy blow from Jiang Chen's sword, he'd used his Restoration of Blood and Flesh, and this had depleted 30 percent or more of his energy.
He couldn't recover from this in a short period of time. If he were to fight again right now, he would definitely have no chance of winning.
His expression was ferocious as he thought about having suffered an enormous loss to a Martial Arts Saint from the human race.
He took his suppressed anger and disappeared.
The Supreme Venerable from the human race turned around, looked at Jiang Chen, and gave him a nod. His eyes were filled with respect.
Before Jiang Chen could say anything to him, he also disappeared.
The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster who'd stayed wanted to talk about something with Jiang Chen. And Jiang Chen also wanted to ask him about Whitey's situation as well.
Hence, a human and a Demon traveled together toward Wind Cloud City.
All the citizens in Wind Cloud City who had been following these events felt extremely surprised to see that Jiang Chen still had the guts to enter Wind Cloud City. But, at the same time, they remembered the power that had been unleashed by Jiang Chen and understood where he was coming from.
"Whitey is currently training hard with the Demon God. After all, the success of his metamorphism is still in its early stages," said the Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster.
"Demon God? Is there already a Divine King among the Demon race?" Jiang Chen was shocked. However, after saying that, he knew that it was quite impossible.
"Above the Supreme Venerable, according to the ranking system of the Demon race, is equivalent to the Divine King." The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster chuckled.
Jiang Chen was enlightened. Thus, all the races knew about the existence of the Demon God and didn't dare to do anything to the Demon race.
"Who is the human race's Extraordinary Supreme Venerable now?" Jiang Chen thought that someone who could make the Supreme Venerable of the wizard race back down must be very strong.
Junior Supreme Venerable, Senior Supreme Venerable, Extraordinary Supreme Venerable: This system that had been established by the Sacred Institute was not simply to show off the honors of a Martial Emperor, but to embrace the strong and the weak of all races.
After all, every race's ranking system was different.
In the same ranks, the human race was slightly weaker than the other races, therefore, it was rare for a Venerable Sovereign from the human race to become a Supreme Venerable. To become an Extraordinary Supreme Venerable only happened one time in a million.
"He is from the Heavenly Sword Continent, a very mysterious man who is unfathomable. The reason why the Supreme Venerable from the wizard race was afraid of him and backed down was because when the Supreme
Venerable from the human race was first titled as an Extraordinary Supreme Venerable, he was doubted by many.
"Thus this man was very straightforward. He called out all the Extraordinary Supreme Venerables who doubted him. If any one of them was able to endure one attack of his sword, he would admit that he was unworthy. I'll let you guess the outcome."
When speaking of this man, the Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster's tone was full of respect.
Very soon, Jiang Chen found out this man's name: Jian Yi.
"Jian Yi!" Jiang Chen was shocked. This name of two words was undeniably domineering.
"In the Heavenly Sword Continent, only the strongest swordsmen are worthy of such a name," said the Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster.
At the present time, the Black Yellow Great World was more stable than it had been in the past. There were three main continents: the Endless Continent, the Sacred Spirit Continent, and the Heavenly Sword Continent.
"Jiang Chen, with your abilities, you could also be listed among the Supreme Venerables. Ha, ha, ha. Are you interested in getting ranked at the Sacred Institute? This would make many drop their jaws. After all, you are still a Martial Arts Saint on the outside." The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster smiled mischievously.
"Oh? What's the benefit of getting ranked?" Jiang Chen asked curiously.
"You can be called a Supreme Venerable. Isn't this benefit enough?"
"Isn't it more domineering to flatten a Supreme Venerable?" Jiang Chen joked with him.
The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster let out a great laugh. However, he also reminded him not to be too proud of himself.
"Jiang Chen, if the last strike you did was at a normal level, then you would be ranked a Senior Supreme Venerable, but I estimate that you would at least be ranked Junior Supreme Venerable." The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster tried to use a radical method to remind Jiang Chen of the mistakes of too much pride.
"Oh?" Jiang Chen was actually in a conundrum, because he had wanted to have a look at the Sacred Institute.
"Let's make a trip to the Sacred Institute then. I happen to have something important to say to them," said Jiang Chen.
"What's the matter?" asked the Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster.
"I've discovered the blood race is back," said Jiang Chen seriously.
"This is normal. There were many that had escaped from the Nether World School and the rebel army. Wait, do you mean the real blood race?" The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster at first answered casually, but instantly realized that something was wrong. His expression became serious.
"That's right." Jiang Chen told him about the incident with the man in the black robe.
"Oh god, this is a serious matter. Let's go. We have to inform the Sacred Institute."
The Stepping Heavenward Venerable Monster knew that this was a critical matter. They couldn't afford to waste a single second. He grabbed Jiang Chen's arm, and they went to the Sacred Institute.
If the blood race really had re-appeared, that meant that catastrophe was coming.
It was still years away from the Divine King appearing. This catastrophe must not come at such crucial moment or else all the efforts they had made would be wasted.
