Chapter 1970 - Intruding onto Myriad Wind Platform



“Don’t worry. Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign won’t covet your technique. Just say that you’re the descendant of Void Sovereign. You will instantly be qualified to bargain with him,” said Big Yellow with incomparable confidence, as though he had seen through every move of Heavenly Peng.
Jiang Chen nodded. He could choose not to trust everyone in the world, but not Big Yellow.
“Demon Sovereign, I have obtained the inheritance of Void Sovereign by accident and completed the cultivation of Great Void Technique.” Following what Big Yellow said, Jiang Chen spoke to Heavenly Peng via divine sense.
Sure enough, after learning that Jiang Chen was Void Sovereign’s descendant, Heavenly Peng’s expression became softer.
“Jiang Chen, you’d better not lie to me. You should know the repercussions of lying to me.” Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign warned.
“Given the wisdom of Demon Sovereign, how could I deceive you?”
Jiang Chen smiled as he could already guess something. It seemed that Heavenly Peng really did know something about Void Sovereign.
Xiao Wangqing, who was next to Jiang Chen, was wearing a nervous look. Not knowing what the conversation between Jiang Chen and Heavenly Peng, numerous experts began to wonder why Heavenly Peng’s fury had diminished all of a sudden.
“Xiao Wangqing, must you see the saintess?” Heavenly Peng looked over at Xiao Wangqing.
“Yes, Demon Sovereign. I want to see her for the last time today even if I am to be executed right after,” replied Xiao Wangqing resolutely.
“Alright, I’ll give you a chance,” said Heavenly Peng.
The abrupt change stunned Xiao Wangqing. He found it somewhat hard to accept for a moment.
As a matter of fact, everyone was looking at Heavenly Peng in astonishment, startled by his sudden change of attitude, particularly Blue Wolf Demon Sovereign, and some of the higher ups for they knew all too well how much Heavenly Peng resented Xiao Wangqing. In their point of view, they had already anticipated that Heavenly Peng wouldn’t kill Xiao Wangqing for the sake of the saintess, but would also never let him see the saintess once again.
However, they knew that things weren’t as simple as it seemed. Even if Heavenly Peng gave Xiao Wangqing a chance, it had to have some conditions.
“Please say the conditions. As long as I can see the saintess for the last time, I, Xiao Wangqing, won’t say a word even if I’m asked to go through the most severe trials,” Xiao Wangqing said.
He didn’t know why Heavenly Peng had changed his mind so suddenly, but he could guess that this must have something to do with Jiang Chen.
“If you want to meet the saintness, you will have to rely on your own capability. You will intrude into the Myriad Wind Platform with Jiang Chen. As long as the both of you can reach the platform, you will be able to see the saintess,” said Heavenly Peng.
“What?”
Countless people exclaimed when they heard this. Most of them lived in the Demonic Immortal Island, so they knew about that platform all too well. Given the strength of Xiao Wangqing and Jiang Chen, it was similar to courting death to break into the place.
“I thought that Demon Sovereign was being compassionate a while ago. I didn’t expect him to give such a harsh condition.”
“That’s right. The Myriad Wind Platform was personally built by Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign using the enormous formation of extremely fast myriad winds. The entire platform consists of billions of waves of wind constantly intersecting with one another. Each gust is destructive. Even a Third Grade Great Sovereign will have a high chance of dying within it.”
“Demon Sovereign is sentencing the two of them to death.”
………………
Discussions began to fill the air. Most of the guests had no idea what the platform was until they heard the conversation of the others and started gloating over the two’s misfortune.
“Haha! These two bastards finally have gotten themselves into a death-trap. Now that they are asked to break into the Myriad Wind Platform, they have no other options.”
“Humph! They deserve it, it’s also good for them to die inside since it will save us time and effort to kill them.”
“It seems like there will be a good show this time. We’ll have a chance to witness the scariness of the Myriad Wind Platform which was personally built by Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign. As Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign is best when it comes to speed, he has integrated the speed of the Heavens and Earth into the platform. In order to break into the platform, the first thing one must have is unparalleled speed. Secondly, one must master the law of countless intersecting wind waves.”
………………..
Lan Xian and Tan Jinye were delighted. To them, Jiang Chen and Xiao Wangqing had just dug their own graves. There was no way for the two of them to refuse the condition of Heavenly Peng because that was equivalent to not giving Heavenly Peng’s face, which would possibly lead to immediate execution.
“Little Chen, Heavenly Peng Demon Sovereign is testing you. If I’m not mistaken, there’s only the Great Void Technique that can pass through the Myriad Wind Platform easily. He is trying to test the authenticity of your words. If you are able to get through the platform, it will prove your identity. At that time, he will acknowledge you as a descendant of Void Sovereign.” Big Yellow’s reassuring words sounded in Jiang Chen’s ears once more.
Xiao Wangqing’s facial expression turned extremely pale after hearing what Heavenly Peng said, his eyes began to display despair. However…
“Alright. I’ll go and break into the Myriad Wind Platform.”
Xiao Wangqing’s qi fluctuated. A trace of resoluteness appeared in his eyes. He wasn’t going to back away. This was his only chance and he was prepared to die on the platform. Like Jiang Chen said, at least he had tried his best.
“Jiang Chen, you don’t have to take the risk with me. I’m truly grateful for your help today. I don’t regret befriending you. After today, whether I will live or die, I will have no regrets.”
Xiao Wangqing patted Jiang Chen’s shoulder, a smile was displayed on his face. He had waited for this day for too long. He wouldn’t retreat or even frown even if death was awaiting him after this.
“Senior, let me do you a favour. Let’s break into the Myriad Wind Platform together. Don’t forget that I have obtained the inheritance of Void Sovereign and cultivated the Great Void Technique. My movement technique and speed are incomparable,” Jiang Chen said with a smile.
All along, he wanted to return the favour of Xiao Wangqing. Now that the chance had come, he had no reason to miss it. He knew very well that Heavenly Peng was actually asking him to break into the platform. Xiao Wangqing would only die without his help.
