Chapter 491: I Need to Kill Someone First
Henyee Translations Henyee Translations
“Tsk, tsk… Who are you? How dare you barge into the Witch Sect Gathering?”
Before the Sect Master of the Ghost Witch Sect said anything, a burly man with red hair and vibrant red tattoos covering his body let out a shriek and shot out a hand.
A giant palm made out of flames appeared out of nowhere. Dark smoke billowed from the fingertips, and an even darker mist shrouded the palm. The combination of the smoke and the fire emitted deadly Poisonous Fire and Yin Qi that would kill anyone upon contact.
The attacker was the Fire Magus.
Although the Sect Master of the Fire Magus was not as powerful as the Sect Master of the Ghost Witch Sect, he, too, had reached the mid-stage of Dharma Cultivation. His Art of Poison Fire Palm was particularly renowned for its deadliness due to its Martial-Dharma Dual Cultivation. Most Grandmasters would not survive a direct hit from the attack. Worse, the Sect Master of the Fire Magus had a bad temper and was not afraid of flexing muscles.
Before Chen Fan fought back, Yukishiro Sa was already at it. She unsheathed her blade and sent out an azure blade aura that sliced through the poisonous fire.
The Azure Blade Aura hacked open the fiery palm. The palm fizzled and disappeared after a huge explosion. The deadly fire and smoke spilled out in all directions and landed on the bodies of many Elders who sat cross-legged on the ground, killing many among them.
“Let’s attack him together and offer her to the new Magus King.”
Sect Master of the Serpent Witch Sect rose to his feet and shouted.
He stomped on the ground with the butt of a serpentine staff and summoned a Snake Spirit Witch had taken the corporeal form of a green arrow out from the tip of the staff. The arrow shot out and traced a smear of the greenish-grey line in the air as it plummeted into Chen Fan and Yukishiro Sa.
Meanwhile, elders of other Witch Sects also attacked.
A hundred or so elders and disciples from nineteen different Witch Sects and all of them had reached mid-stage of Dao-Reaching Level. Their combined might finally made Yukishiro Sa falter a little.
However, Chen Fan was still unaffected by the threat. He looked to the Sect Master of the Ghost Witch Sect and asked: “Where is she?”
Sect Master of the Ghost Witch Sect’s face darkened and didn’t say a thing.
“Tell me now, or die.”
Chen Fan snorted and took a step forward.
Chen Fan had put in no more effort than it took to put one foot before the other, however, his action looked as if that of a primordial giant. The impact between Chen Fan’s sole and the earth ushered in an ear deafening blare and a powerful shock wave. As if magic, Azure Blade Auras shot out from the tip of Chen Fan’s fingers and shot at the snake spirit, banishing it to the void. The energy went past the snake spirit and hacked the elder of the Spirit Witch Sect into halves.
However, this was only the beginning of their punishment.
Chen Fan took another step forward.
With a casual wave of a hand, he had pressed a Sect Guardian who had thrown himself at Chen Fan flat against the ground.
Then Chen Fan took the third step.
He shot out a finger and poked the forehead of a young lord from the Spirit Witch Sect, making it explode in an instant.
Chen Fan killed an enemy with each step he took. Each death was different than the one that came before it. Some died from the Azure Blade Qi, some by physical force, some by the soul energy and some were killed by violent curses.
Once Chen Fan finished nineteen steps, there were nineteen more corpses lying on the ground.
He had killed an Overlord in nearly each and every one of the nineteen Witch Sects.
His enemies’ faces changed as reality finally set in. Even the Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect looked gloomy and concerned by the development.
“Who is this young man? His Martial arts, Dharma Spells, and Soul Energy cultivation are all sublime. Plus, he is so young! Is he the new Azure dragon from Kunlun?”
The Sect Master of Spirit Witch Sect said loudly.
“It’s impossible. Azure Dragon is an expert in Martial-Dharma Dual Cultivation and excelled in Curse Sorcery, as well as Vajrayana arts. There is no way that this young man would have known so much at such a young age.” Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect shook his head and then looked to the Sect Master of the Ghost With Sect.
“Sect Master, you this man seemed to be after you, do you know who he is?”
Everyone looked to the Sect Master of the Ghost With Sect curiously.
An array of emotions surfaced on the Sect Master’s face and in the end, he murmured reluctantly:
“He is Chen Beixuan!”
The revelation had stupefied all the listeners.
Chen Fan had been active in Northern China, far away from Southeast Asia and southern China where the Witch Sects operated. Therefore, no one had expected that it was Chen Fan.
However, as the reality setting in, even the Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect could no longer remain calm.
By then, Chen Fan had already made his way to the platform.
He took twenty-five steps in a row and ended the lives of twenty-five Dao-Reaching Level overlords. The growing death toll had instilled fear into his enemies.
Those Chen Fan had killed were all elites of each sect.
“Donn Donn Donn”
Chen Fan started up the stairs that led to the platform. Other than the Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect, the other magus rose to their feet and looked nervously at the approaching living legend.
“Chen Beixuan, why do you barge into our gathering and kill my people? Do you think the Witch Sects are pushovers?”
Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect sat steadily in an armchair and asked with a dark face.
“Where is she?”
Chen Fan ignored the Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect, instead, he locked his gaze on the Sect Master of the Ghost With Sect.
His question had terrified the hundred-year-old Magus. His face was pale and lifeless and his body trembled uncontrollably. All the while, he refused to say a thing.
“Chen Beixuan, how dare you ignore me.”
Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect railed against Chen Fan.
He was the current Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect, the inner disciple of the last Grand Magus, any one of his decisions would affect countless people’s lives. Plus, he was here to claim the throne of the Magus King, so he wouldn’t let Chen Fan ruin his plan by disrespecting him.
Chen Fan furrowed his brows and shot out an arm.
A crackling of thunder came up from a distance, as a ten-meter long apparition of a hand appeared in the sky. It bore down onto the Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect with the weight of a mountain.
The Fire Magus, Battle Magus, and the Crimson Magus all reacted quickly to ward off the attack.
They hurled one spell after another up into the sky to block the Azure hand. The Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect also pulled a dark face as dark energy rose from his body and morphed into the shape of a palm the same size as Chen Fan’s spell.
“Bang, bang, bang!”
The Azure palm in the sky didn’t even move an inch after the attacks landed on it. Some attacks even bounced off of the Azure palm and landed on the magus, killing many in the process.
The giant azure palm kept coming down with an unswerving conviction.
It easily crushed through the black palm, and the latter fizzled and disappeared. The Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect blenched, and hurried to fish out a small drum made out of human skin. He bit open the tip of his tongue and spat out a wad of blood at it.
The drum soaked up the blood and flew to the sky, unleashing a curtain of crimson energy that wrapped around the Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect.
However, Chen Fan’s attack was not so easily defended.
Suddenly, a loud blare came up that sounded like a church bell bellowed around people’s ears.
Under the immeasurable pressure of the Azure palm, the crimson screen shattered and so did the drum. With nothing standing in its way, the azure palm went straight through the earth and created a crater a few meters deep. The crater was in the perfect shape of a palm with palm lines and all.
The Magus gasped in unison.
Even the combined might of six Perfected Cultivators couldn’t slow down Chen Fan’s attack.
Right before the crimson energy screen gave in, The Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect pitched his body to a side and escaped the deadly attack by a hair’s breadth. However, he had permanently lost a precious drum to the attack. The Drum was one of the seven top Magus Artifacts in the possession of the Dark Witch Sect.
“Where is she?”
Chen Fan still had his eyes fixed on the Sect Master of the Ghost With Sect and asked.
“Chen Beixuan, The Witch Sects has nineteen branches, and millions of members across the globe. Do you really want to be our enemy?”
Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect asked vehemently.
The stress finally frayed the edge of Sect Master of the Ghost With Sect’s mind. His face changed as he shouted at the top of his mind.
“Chen Beixuan, I have offered Yu Wenjin to the Grand Magus God to feast on her Arcane Yin body. You are already too late, she must have all but been consumed by the Grand Magus God.”
Chen Fan’s face suddenly became severe.
A deadly tension suddenly made the air feel heavy as a pulse of energy swept across the entire plaza. The hearts of the seven Perfected Cultivators all sank to the bottom of an ice cave.
A horrid illusion played out right before their eyes: it was the scene of hell.
They saw a powerful banishing the purest evil and slaughtering the mightiest gods. It was a universe of terror and pain, not a single planet was intact and not a single race could avoid the senseless slaughtering.
So powerful was Chen Fan’s Divine Will that he could send visions into other’s minds. These illusions were all fragments of Chen Fan’s brutal past.
“Arrh!” “Arrh!” “Arrh!” “What are you going to do?”
The mind of Ghost Magus was the first one to go. His mortal coil could not comprehend these unthinkable visions, the mere attempt to make sense of this scene would result in a complete meltdown of his mind. The old man’s eyes darted left and right restlessly as he fumbled to back away.
Chen Fan stepped forward without any expression on his face.
His feet landed on the Ghost Magus and reduced the latter into a bloody mush.
Chen Fan started an art to draw the Grand Magus’s soul into his grasp. Then he spat out a golden flame at the translucent soul, reducing it into nothing.
“If anything happened to Yu Wenjin, I will kill each and every one of you and wipe the Witch Sects off the face of the earth.”
Chen Fan said coldly with an impassive voice.
Everyone looked at Chen Fan fearfully. They heard the painful cry of the Grand Magus as his soul was being burned away. In the end, the translucent soul turned into a thin puff of smoke and disappeared.
It was the first time these Magus saw anyone’s soul being annihilated.
Such a deadly and unforgiving method was unheard of.
“Chen Beixuan, aren’t you afraid of my Lord Father?”
Grand Magus of the Dark Witch Sect asked with a hard face.
However, Chen Fan replied to him with a Blade Aura that gleamed gold.
