Chapter 295 – Who Dares?
It was almost impossible to find a vein of the First Wood True Essence in a city of such size and one that had not been discovered already.
Not to mention that almost everyone here had opened their spiritual wisdom and were at least at the foundation realm. The two masters of the Dacheng realm who ruled the city, were also not easy to cope with.
Yang Chen was not sure whether they had already found the vein of the First Wood True Essence or if they still had not found it yet, everything needed him to find out himself.
It was not impossible to come here to practice, and he would definitely be seen. However, it was not a good idea to practice the Great Yin and Yang Five Elements Secret Art here. The spiritual power here was controlled by the people. Once it was discovered that Yang Chen was not a monster cultivator, he would definitely not be able to escape in time.
This was not the Pure Yang Palace. If Yang Chen wanted to retreat, he was afraid of someone peeking. This was not his own domain, he of course had to be careful, caution was the parent of safety. It was better to be safer than sorry, that was the unchanging truth.
However, the Yellow Turban Strongman Body Refining Technique was very suitable, Yang Chen could be assured and boldly practice it. The body refining techniques in the cultivator’s cultivation system were completely different, the body refining techniques could be stopped at any time without worrying about being disturbed during the practice. If there were unexpected incidents, Yang Chen could easily cope with them.
However, since he had come to a city where monsters cultivated, it was not rare for Yang Chen to see if the cultivation methods of these monster cultivators had become powerful enough. Anyway, he was now pretending to be a rogue monster cultivator, who came here to cultivate. Buying the cultivation methods was thus, a very normal thing.
Yang Chen’s figure soon appeared in the huge square market. This time, Yang Chen was no longer looking around hastily, but began to carefully browse.
He started by strolling from the stalls. These monster cultivators in the stalls would naturally sell goods to those bigger merchants. Those were then bound to crush their customers underneath equally high prices. It was better to take profits directly from the stalls instead.
Of course, since it was a stall, it was impossible to be more expensive than the shops. Otherwise no one would buy here. In short, scattered buyers, through these stalls could still get a cheaper rate.
Yang Chen was looking at them one by one. Although many things were not produced in the Central Plains, he could still make two times the profit, if he brings it there. However, Yang Chen couldn’t be too full of himself. Sometimes being rich did exude power but prestige could not even be worth a pint of salt among a group of robbers, only further anguish.
The monster cultivators were still monsters, even if there was a seemingly strict law and organization here, their mentality of the law of the jungle was ingrained their bones and had not changed too much. This point, Yang Chen has seen being made countless times in his previous life.
If Yang Chen now had a cultivation of the Yuanying realm, only then would he never be so cautious. But he was only a cultivator who has just reached the early stage of the Jiedan realm and did not want to ruin the Immortal Beheading Blade which he was tempering himself.
However, even if Yang Chen’s performance was so cautious, he was still stared at. The last time he looked around the city, he basically just took a glance at it and did not stop, naturally it would not attract the attention of others. But this time, Yang Chen was planning to score some good things. Thus, he was perusing carefully, and soon people took notice of him.
“Are you new here?”
One of the onlookers was a guy who had idly appeared in front of Yang Chen. The person was a wolf head. His cultivation base was only a little bit higher than Yang Chen’s, in the middle Jiedan stage. When he spoke, he had the gaze of someone carefully observing something and the tone of a fat sheep.
Everyone here was very disciplined, no one let loose of their spiritual awareness, unless it was to explore the inside of something. It was also controlled to only explore what was in their hands. Otherwise, no matter which monster cultivator was discovered by spiritual awareness, the act would be regarded as provocation.
In fact, this rule was the same in the human cultivators’ markets. At any time, without permission, it was a provocation to explore each other with spiritual awareness. Unless it was in battle, or when his cultivation base was surprisingly high.
Yang Chen didn’t open his spiritual awareness, but it didn’t mean he didn’t know the movements around him. He had the Three Purities Secret Art’s formidable Spiritual Awareness threads released a little. However, they did not cover the usual area, but only a hundred square feet, so as not to get perceived by high-ranking monster cultivators. Around, the races were numerous, he had to be careful.
When the other party came close, Yang Chen had already noticed. And there was not only one, there were four around, two in the late stage of the foundation realm, a late Jiedan stage master and the remaining one turned out to be at the beginning of the Yuanying realm.
Looking at the tone and the expression of the other party, Yang Chen knew that it was definitely the domineering thug in the city, otherwise the surrounding stall owners and buyers would not have shunned this situation.
“I just arrived a few days ago, l came over to broaden my horizons.”
Yang Chen did not conceal the fact that he had just arrived. These monsters were very shrewd, it was impossible to pretend like a regular visitor.
“The newcomers are welcome here, but there are rules.”
The wolf’s mouth made a burst of laughter, and it took two steps closer. It almost collided with Yang Chen. The guy with the wolf head looked at the things on the stall that Yang Chen had just stared at, and suddenly said to the stall owner, “Do you want to tell him about the rules?”
The stall owner was just a chicken head monster cultivator in the late stage of the foundation realm. He did not dare to provoke this guy. With an accompanied laugh, the wolf head was about to talk, that Yang Chen suddenly robbed him of his words.
“Since there are rules, it is still annoying to big brother, let me personally talk to him!”
As he said, Yang Chen seemed to be very close to wolf head. He held his shoulders, as if leaning side by side. The hand on the shoulder of the other side, actually pinched it so hard that it started to swell to the bone.
The opposite stall owner was like a big man, this kind of offending person, if he was forced by the wolf head, he would definitely let Yang Chen hate him. Now that Yang Chen took the initiative to let the wolf introduce it himself, it would not matter to him. He was also happy to watch the fun.
However, what was strange was that in the market, the wolf leader who had always been a stalwart, seemed to have gotten himself into this unlikely situation.
He didn’t know why, but the wolf suddenly changed his face, and sweat appeared on his head. Even if there was thick hair on the wolf, he still sweated.
What was happening? A monster cultivator in the Jiedan realm, would actually be so sweaty? But no one around them saw any problems. Just stared at Yang Chen and the wolf, it seemed strange how this little bully would be so out of place.
The wolf head was secretly complaining now. Yang Chen was very casual and took his hand to his shoulders. It suddenly felt like a mountain had fallen on his body. The huge pressure directly made him unable to say a word, and he could only use all his strength to resist the pressure.
The shoulder blade held by Yang Chen’s hand made a burst of sound as if it was about to break, as if the next moment, the entire shoulder blade would be shattered.
He didn’t know why, he couldn’t employ any of the demon power of his body. It seemed to be locked firmly by something. At this moment, let alone counterattack with demon power, even if it was moving any part of the body would become a burden.
The wolf head had no doubt that if Yang Chen was willing, he would be dead on the spot immediately after the next moment. Even if someone came to his rescue, it was estimated that only his body could be recovered.
Standing in the same place, the cold sweat of the wolf continued to drip down nonstop. The opposite stall owner had been sluggish but now had seen through the situation completely. He became dumbfounded, he understood that it was definitely the wolf head that was going to be killed by Yang Chen.
“Here, what is the rule?”
Yang Chen seemed to be afraid that the wolf head did not hear him clearly. In this close range, he repeated his own words again.
Fortunately, Yang Chen did not carry out the next move. After his question, the wolf head didn’t know how, but the pressure on his body had loosened, and then he found that he had the ability to speak.
“Let him go! Otherwise I will cut your head off!”
There was a sudden shout next to them, the leopard head master of the Yuanying realm had already noticed that something was wrong and rushed over. His only younger brother was in the hands of Yang Chen. He did not dare to act rashly, but threatened Yang Chen.
Yang Chen was very strange and turned back. He asked in a surprised tone, “can you kill someone here?”
His words were naturally to be explained by the wolf head. After he visited the city for a few days, he thought that it was impossible to kill people here, but the other party actually said that he wanted to cut his head off, which suddenly made Yang Chen somewhat confused. Was the rule here not so strict?
“No! You can’t kill people here!”
The wolf head was almost crying. His own life was also in the hands of Yang Chen. If he could kill, isn’t he the first one to be finished off?
“Even if you can’t kill, it’s the same to abolish you!”
The Yuanying realm master immediately realized that his younger brother’s life was in the hands of Yang Chen and suddenly changed his tone to threaten again.
“You want to abolish me?”
Yang Chen’s look was fierce and gloomy. On the face of his smile, suddenly there was a frost, “no killing, but abolishing is ok, is it?”
The Yuanying realm master saw Yang Chen’s face mutation and thought that he had become scared. He coldly smiled, “of course, see that guy over there?”
He reached out to the side and again threatened, “If you don’t want to be like him, you will honestly take out all the valuables on your body.”
Along his fingers, Yang Chen saw at the edge of the market stall, a goat was curled up under the corner of the wall. Although the body was huge, it was well maintained.
It was thought that he had not practiced anything like Transformation Secret Art, but now, taking a closer look, Yang Chen suddenly became aware. The goat was simply wasted, and its cultivation base was abolished, although the spiritual wisdom was thrown in, but now it was only at the level of qi refining realm. Being thrown there, it was being used to warn others.
“It turns out like that!”
Yang Chen took a sigh of relief, if he could make people like that, it would become simple.
With a hand raised, the wolf head’s body flew directly towards the Yuanying realm master. The other party saw his younger brother suddenly fly over, his hand stretched out, and the wolf head was caught in his hand.
Yang Chen turned out to be so obedient, the Yuanying realm master’s face showed a sneer, “you know your limit, but my brother is not to be bullied by anyone.”
He had never seen such a stupid guy. He thought that if he let people go, would they let him go?
However, his voice just fell, and he felt a heavy punch on his stomach. This fist, carrying an unrivalled force, went straight through his chest and abdomen.
The Yuanying realm master’s body was struck to fly. All his internal organs and the six squats trembled under the pain, his stomach felt like a river. The Yuanying realm master had not suffered such pain in his life, even the intestines were so painful to even have convulsions. Don’t say anything about the reaction, he couldn’t even find time to scream, the cramps of his lungs were extremely painful, his breathing could not continue, let alone the sound.
Everyone in the market stared dumbfounded at Yang Chen who had thrown the wolf head to the side. Then he took a step, jumped and punched the Yuanying stage ancestor. The series of actions were bold and had fallen even before they had reacted. The leopard head had been beaten to fly.
However, this was only the beginning. The Yuanying realm master was still in the air that everyone saw Yang Chen jump high and his whip like legs picking up the whistling wind. Then from top to bottom, they started pummelling the body of the Yuanying realm master.
The body of Yuanying realm master, like a shell of a scorpion, directly smashed into the ground. The hard ground was dredged, and a deep pit formed with the contours of the Yuanying realm master.
The people around them had stunned expressions, opened mouths with disbelieving eyes.
The Yuanying realm master who was unreachable in their eyes, at this moment, was like a dead fish. The whiteness of his eyes was showing, and his body was breathing heavily. There was no other movement from him. Don’t talk about counterattacks, standing up was something that couldn’t be achieved.
It was still not finished. Yang Chen fell lightly, reached out and took the Yuanying stage master out of the deep pit. Then he held him in his hand. Currently, the Yuanying stage master was on the brink of losing consciousness, his head was soft and hanged on one side, only he was breathing slowly.
“Abolishing people’s cultivation base is fine, this is a very good rule!”
Yang Chen was very casual and snorted, his voice was not loud, but the people around him could hear it clearly.
When they heard the words of Yang Chen, everyone was in a bad mood. Looking at Yang Chen, was like watching a demon.
Yang Chen threw another punch, landing heavily in the lower abdomen of the Yuanying realm master.
A clear cracking sound came to everyone’s ears. As the sound was heard, the body shape of the Yuanying realm master began to change rapidly.
In a twinkling of an eye, the Yuanying realm master with the leopard head became a huge leopard, more than a dozen feet long, it was about the size of the goat on the other side.
The leopard was thrown to the side of the goat, and Yang Chen clapped as if he had to drain the dust from his hand. There was also a dissatisfied voice in his mouth, “I hate others who call themselves king, to dominate.
“Is there anyone who still dares to challenge me?”
