Chapter 833 – Dragon Serpent Sect
When the laughter rang out, whistles of wind resounded as a huge group of light figures streaked over and landed in this area.
When the light dissipated, a troop donned in grey armour appeared in everyone’s eyes. The amount of this troop was actually in no way inferior to the Nine Nether Troop, with a huge black serpent engraved on their grey armour that looked ferocious and filled with ominous aura.
At the front of that troop stood two proud figures that looked to be middle-aged. The face of one of them was flawlessly pale, while the other was especially robust. He looked like an iron tower and even the ground showed signs of trembling from him just standing there.
At this moment, that robust man was looking at Mu Chen with a ridiculing smile. Clearly, the voice from earlier belonged to him.
“That’s… Lu Wu and Lu Kui, the two Sect Masters of the Dragon Serpent Sect!”
When everyone recovered from their shock in this region, they immediately recognised the new group and astonished exclaims resounded.
“The Dragon Serpent Sect?”
Mu Chen’s black pupils contained a hint of chill as he looked at that troop. He had naturally heard of such a force. They were known to be a top force in the Northern Region, except that they were extremely far from the Great Havenlaw Domain. Furthermore, they seemed to have some relations with the Divine Pavilion, having the backing of the Divine Pavilion. Thus, they naturally wouldn’t be afraid of the Great Havenlaw Domain, unlike some other forces.
Mu Chen and Nine Nether exchanged a glance as a chill flowed in their eyes.
“I’m Lu Wu of the Dragon Serpent Sect. Haha, you must be Palace Master Nine Nether of the Nine Nether Palace, one of the Nine Kings of the Great Havenlaw Domain, right?” The man with a pale complexion looked at Nine Nether.
Nine Nether swept an indifferent glance at him, before saying, “Your Dragon Serpent Sect is truly daring to even think about snatching from my Great Havenlaw Domain. Did you really think that by relying on the Divine Pavilion, there’s nothing that my Great Havenlaw Domain can do to you guys?”
Hearing her words, Lu Wu smiled. “If it was the usual, my Dragon Serpent Sect would definitely, carefully consider the offer. But since we’re all in the Hunting War, even if your Great Havenlaw Domain is a Buddha, don’t even think about scaring this Sect Master with that name.”
“Dealing with trash like you, my Nine Nether Palace alone is enough.” Nine Nether said coldly.
Standing beside Lu Wu, the towering Lu Kui showed a ferocious smile as he crossed his arms, tilting his head in ridicule as he looked at the Nine Nether Troop behind Mu Chen. “According to what I know, your Nine Nether Troop is the weakest troop in the Great Havenlaw Domain. They’ve been bullied for so many years and did not even dare to fight back. And now, you even dare to bring them out to stroll around, are you not afraid of embarrassment?”
When the few thousand warriors of the Nine Nether Troop heard his words, their eyes instantly surged with ominous aura and their eyes flashed with a ferocious light, while staring at Lu Kui. Vaguely, there was a boundless Battle Will that surged out.
That surging Battle Will was naturally noticed by Lu Kui and the ridiculing smile on his face froze with his gaze trembling. As a Commander of a troop, he naturally knew that not just anyone could refine such a Battle Will.
“I heard that the Dragon Serpent Sect has two extremely famous troops, the Dragon Troop and Serpent Troop… If I am guessing correctly, the one behind you should be the Serpent Troop, right?” Mu Chen finally spoke out in an indifferent voice as his black pupils swept at the troop standing behind Lu Kui.
It was a troop with the same amount as the Nine Nether Troop, except that they’re enveloped in an eerie fluctuation, like a venomous snake that was hidden in the dark that could not be underestimated.
This troop was probably the strongest one that he had seen amongst the troops of others.
“Brat, although you’re still a little tender, you’ve got pretty keen eyes.”
Lu Kui grinned as he looked at Mu Chen with an eye-narrowing smile. “You must be that Mu Chen whose fame has been spreading like wildfire in the Northern Region, right? To be able to have such achievements at your age is indeed extraordinary. But the things here isn’t something a brat like you can mess around with, go back home and cultivate for a few more decades before coming out.”
“You’re overestimating trash like yourself too much.” Mu Chen lightly smiled as he shook his head upon hearing Lu Kui’s words.
Lu Kui’s face lightly trembled as a ferocious light blossomed from his narrowed eyes. A boundless Spiritual Energy undulated around him as a powerful Spiritual Energy pressure enveloped over.
Sensing that Spiritual Energy pressure, Mu Chen gently raised his brows. Although Lu Kui’s character wasn’t good, he had some decent strength. Judging from his Spiritual Energy pressure, he had already reached the Fifth Grade Sovereign Realm. Furthermore, he was a little stronger than Qiu Taiyin, who had just stepped into the Fifth Grade Sovereign Realm.
“You dare to act so imposingly with a cultivation at Fifth Grade Sovereign?” Nine Nether’s eyes turned cold as purple flames gushed out from her body, causing the chill in this region to dissipate a lot more. At the same time, Lu Kui’s Spiritual Energy pressure had been entirely shattered.
“Haha, Palace Master Nine Nether, don’t get angry. If my third brother’s strength is not up to your standards, I believe I can satisfy you a little.”
Lu Wu gently smiled as he joined his hands together, causing boundless Spiritual Energy to soar into the horizon. The Spiritual Energy fluctuated in mid-air like an ocean, causing splashing noises to be emitted. Clearly, it was because the vast Spiritual Energy had been condensed to a shocking extent.
That powerful Spiritual Energy pressure was undoubtedly much stronger than Lu Kui’s.
That’s because Lu Wu was a Sixth Grade Sovereign!
“Condensing Spiritual Energy, a Sixth Grade Sovereign?”
Nine Nether narrowed her eyes at this moment as she coldly looked at Lu Kui. She did not expect the latter’s strength to reach this height.
It looked like the Dragon Serpent Sect did have some basis of being a top force. Even amongst the Kings of the Great Havenlaw Domain, he could be at the mid-top level.
Furthermore, the Dragon Serpent Sect had a total of three Sect Masters. Lu Wu and Lu Kui were only the second and third ranking.
When others saw this scene, they naturally knew that a battle was unavoidable, today. Although the Great Havenlaw Domain’s reputation was extremely resounding, the Nine Nether Palace was all alone here. Furthermore, even if the Dragon Serpent Sect was not comparable to the Great Havenlaw Domain, it was a top force, after all. Therefore, they clearly had no intention of giving up the Grade-3 Ruin.
But others were glad to see that neither party was willing to concede to the other. After all, if the two forces fought, one of them would definitely be wounded and they might have the chance to fish for benefits this way.
Mu Chen narrowed his eyes as he looked at the formation of the Dragon Serpent Sect. Judging from a certain angle, the other party’s strength wasn’t any weaker than their Nine Nether Palace. Otherwise, they wouldn’t even dare to snatch the ruin from them. It looked like a battle was unavoidable, today.
“Leave that fellow to me.”
Nine Nether coldly looked at Lu Kui as she said to Mu Chen. Her figure slowly rose up and a clear cry resonated at her rear, dissipating a majority of Lu Kui’s Spiritual Energy pressure.
“The Nine Netherworld Bird?”
Lu Wu’s eyes narrowed with a smear of fear flashing in his eyes at this sight. He naturally knew how troublesome someone with the body of a Divine Beast was.
Lu Wu’s eyes flickered with light as he smiled. “Palace Master Nine Nether, I know that you are a Nine Netherworld Bird with extraordinary fighting capabilities. But if we truly fight, it won’t be easy for a victor to be determined.”
Hearing his words, Nine Nether spoke with an indifferent voice, “Scram if you don’t want to fight.”
Lu Wu’s brows twitched. “Why don’t we use another method to determine the ownership of this ruin?”
“What do you want?” Nine Nether sneered but she did not make her move. This Lu Wu did, indeed, possess some capabilities and she would probably have a difficult time if they fought. But, right now, no one knew if it would attract more powerful forces. Therefore, she could only preserve her power as much as possible.
“I’ve long heard that the Nine Nether Troop is an elite troop in the Great Havenlaw Domain. I wonder which one of them is stronger, is it comparable to our Serpent Troop?”
Lu Wu smiled with his eyes narrowed. “Why don’t we have our troops fight each other and the winner will obtain the ruin?”
“Haha, I’m just afraid that brat might not have the courage to do so.” Lu Kui showed a savage smile as he crossed his arms, looking at Mu Chen. He naturally could tell that Mu Chen was in control of the Nine Nether Troop.
Although he looked muscle-headed with a robust build, he was also a cunning person deep in his heart. His words were complete ridicule. He was trying to force Mu Chen to compete with him in troops.
Lu Kui commanded the Serpent Troop and swept through the Northern Region with glorious achievements. Therefore, he didn’t feel that threatened from such a young Commander like Mu Chen.
When Nine Nether heard their decisions, not only was she not enraged, there was even a smile-yet-not-a-smile arc on her lips.
Down below, Mu Chen had lightly smiled as he turned around and looked at the Nine Nether Troop. “Someone is provoking our Nine Nether Troop. What do you say we do?”
The few thousand warriors of the Nine Nether Troop suddenly turned ferocious as they barked out in one voice. Their voice was filled with dense killing intent, causing Lu Kui’s ferocious expression to involuntarily narrow his eyes.
He looked at the arc hung on the corner of Mu Chen’s lips and felt a surge of unease in his heart. The easy situation had suddenly seemed a little out of his expectations.
But Lu Kui was not your ordinary goon. He swiftly suppressed those thoughts in his heart and his gaze turned eerie. He had walked in the Northern Region for so many years and he refused to believe that a mere brat would dare to be so arrogant before him!
He wanted to slaughter every single one of the so-called “Nine Nether Troop”!
