Chapter 1724: Holding Them Out Alone
“Two mid Gods and two early Gods,” Jian Chen murmured. He also frowned before glancing at the opening dwelling. There would still be some time before the dwelling opened.
“What a powerful pressure on the soul. Even my soul trembles before this pressure. It must be the jade pendant that contains a sliver of the power from Godking Duanmu’s soul. They’re opening the dwelling right now…”
“Quick, quick. Speed up some more. We can’t let them open the entrance to the dwelling. Once they make it in there, the dwelling will close up. When that happens, we won’t be able to enter even if we know where it is since we don’t have the key…”
“We have to steal Godking Duanmu’s jade no matter what. It’s the complete jade pendant. Once Godking Duanmu’s jade ends up in our hands, the legacy and wealth of Godking Duanmu will all fall into our Wayner clan’s hands. Heavens, that’s a legacy of a supreme Godking…”
“Hahaha, the heavens are shining on our Wayner clan, allowing us to obtain such a great fortune. Our Wayner clan will definitely produce Godkings in the future…”
The four old men from the Wayner clan stared at the dwelling that was slowly opening, and their eyes all became green with greed. Their hearts seemed to have lost control as they beat heavily despite so many years of peace.
At this moment, excitement, joy, and other emotions flooded their minds. In their eyes, Godking Duanmu’s jade already belonged to them.
This was because they could tell with a single glance that Mo Ling and Ando Fu were only Gods, early Gods as a matter of fact. On the other hand, the ancestors of the Wayner clan comprised of two early Gods and two mid Gods. The difference in strength could be described as the disparity between heaven and earth.
“Quick, charge over and kill them. Destroy the Mo clan and the Ando clan. Kill all of their people. Godking Duanmu’s jade is ours…” Desire burned in the eyes of the four ancestors. They were overly excited, to the point where their faces had already become completely flushed. One of them had already begun laughing aloud crazily.
“Hahaha, we’re going to obtain Godking Duanmu’s jade. Xiao Ye has done a great job. It was he who told us the reality of Godking Duanmu’s jade, which was why we could make it here so quickly. By the time the other clans in the Dong’an province have verified this news, we would’ve already entered the dwelling. As for our own clans… Hahaha, our Wayner clan will have Godkings in the future! Rebuilding the clan will be a piece of cake.” The four Gods from the Wayner clan were all ravished with joy. The heavens had blessed them, allowing the fortune to fall directly into their laps.
However, what they did not know was that the Overgod ancestors of the Ando clan, Mo clan, and Lu family had already searched through Godking Duanmu’s dwelling for many years already. Not only did they fail to obtain Godking Duanmu’s legacy as Overgods, but they had all died in there.
The four Gods of the Wayner clan moved extremely quickly. They arrived in the depths of the mountains in the blink of an eye, and they were quite close to Jian Chen and the others now.
Jian Chen’s gaze was sharp. He surged with soaring sword Qi. The moment the four gods entered the depths of the mountains, he also stepped out, directly charging towards the four of them. At the same time, he said without even turning back, “Keep opening the entrance. I’ll stop them.”
When the four Gods saw Jian Chen charge over aggressively, their faces became filled with heavy killing intent. They no longer cared who was before them today. They would kill anyone who stood in their way of obtaining Godking Duanmu’s jade, even if it were the three most powerful clans in the Dong’an province!
“Those who stand in my way will die!”
“No one can stop me from getting Godking Duanmu’s jade!”
“You petty thief, piss off!”
The four Gods all bellowed out. At that moment, they had really lost their minds. They no longer cared whether Jian Chen was at the Origin realm, whether he was a Deity, or whether he was a God. They all struck out with their full strength towards Jian Chen at the same time.
They had almost lost all their rationality before the enticement of Godking Duanmu’s legacy!
Whether it was a Godking’s legacy or a Godking’s treasure, any single one of them was enough for puny Gods like them to become fatally attracted. This was because Godkings were indomitable existences in their eyes, existences that they could only look up to, let alone a supreme Godking who made it onto the Godking’s throne.
The four of them struck out with their full strength. Powerful origin energy formed huge sword Qi with the power of laws. A total of four sword Qi shot towards Jian Chen with great might.
Jian Chen was stern. Against four Gods, he did not dare to be careless, especially when two of them were mid Gods.
Although his comprehension of laws had exceeded the four of them, reaching late God, his personal cultivation was still not as great. He was only equivalent to a Deity.
“Sky-severing Strike!” Jian Chen raised the Flying Snow sword high above his head. As snow danced in the surroundings, the light on the Flying Snow sword expanded to several hundred meters long, and he directly cleaved down with it.
With the strike, an invisible domain of the sword formed, making it seem like space had frozen.
The four Gods were surprised. Before Jian Chen’s attack, they all felt an extremely great threat. In particular, the two early Gods experienced an even more intense sense of threat.
The huge streak of light struck the sword Qi from the four Gods heavily, immediately erupting with a great boom. Terrifying ripples of energy wreaked havoc in the surroundings, causing mountains to collapse and the ground to crack. The entire world seemed to be trembling violently.
The powerful ripples of energy forced all the elders of the Mo clan and the Ando clan to retreat. None of them managed to remain stable. Only Mo Ling, Ando Fu, and Shen Jian remained where they were.
However, the dwelling that was slowly opening up was not affected at all. Clearly, the shockwaves were not enough to shake up the formations around the dwelling.
Jian Chen’s body drifted back by a few meters as well. He wielded the Flying Snow sword as he hovered there emotionlessly. Violent streams of energy crashed into his body, making his clothes and long hair flutter.
The four Gods before him all came to a halt as well. The two early Gods had even staggered backwards, only stabilising themselves with great difficulty after falling back a hundred meters.
Jian Chen’s sword technique posed an extremely great threat to any single one of them. He could even heavily injure or kill an early God with the strike. The four Gods only managed to reach a stalemate when working together.
