PMG Chapter 2104: Mu Chen’s Name
“Who are those people and what do they want to do?” many people were asking. A short time before, they had helped the Wen Clan keep their deployment mine, they were extremely strong.
After that, they had come to the Yu Clan and when everybody thought they were going to help the Yu Clan, surprisingly, one of them gave up. Were they plotting against the Yu Clan? Three duels had taken place, and the Jing Clan had won two of them. One more, and they’d win and take the Yu Clan’s deployment mine. The strongest cultivator of the Jing Clan, Jing Yan, hadn’t fought yet, who would be able to compete with him?
Therefore, even if Tian Chi said they’d take the Jing Clan’s deployment mine, the members of the Yu Clan were still angry and all looked unsightly. If they didn’t manage to keep their own deployment mine, how would they be able to take the Jing Clan’s? What about the Wen Clan and the Feng Clan? If they didn’t share a part of the profits, how would the Yu Clan be able to keep the Jing Clan under control?
The Yu Clan tried to think of a solution, but they felt desperate, as if they had already lost. They were almost certain they couldn’t win both of the last two battles.
“Fourth battle!” said a strong cultivator of the Jing Clan at that moment. A strong cultivator jumped onto the battle stage. This time, the Jing Clan didn’t make Jing Yan fight because they still had hope. They hoped they would not need to make him fight. They hoped to take the deployment mine after the fourth duel. That way, they would still have some trump cards in case the three other clans joined hands to take their deployment mine.
However, the Yu Clan couldn’t give the Jing Clan such an opportunity. They sent Su Mu from the Celestial Remarkable Deployment Ministry for that battle and won it. They had both won two duels now.
It was time for the last fight!
For this battle, the Yu Clan sent Yu Lin. The Jing Clan sent Jing Yan. They were both terrifying deployment spell casters. Their battle would determine who would get an extra deployment mine.
“Yu Lin, we can only rely on you now,” said the strong cultivators of the Yu Clan. Yu Lin was their last hope. This battle would be extremely difficult, but they couldn’t afford to lose. Actually, Jing Yan was stronger than Yu Lin. He shouldn’t lose, either. Therefore, the Yu Clan had the impression they had already lost their deployment mine.
Thinking about that, the members of the Yu Clan all felt depressed. Were they going to lose a deployment mine they had owned for thousands of years?
Yu Lin took a deep breath. He had to fight. He had no other choice. He had to use his full strength. Jing Yan was staring at him.
“Wait.” When Yu Lin started heading to the battle stage, Tian Chi spoke up from the group of people from the Wen Clan.
The Yu Clan frowned and looked over at him icily. What did that guy want? A moment before, because of him, they had lost a battle!
Tian Chi ignored Yu Lin’s expression and ran over to the people of the Jing Clan.
“Will Mu Chen show up?” Tian Chi asked the members of the Jing Clan. When Jing Xiao Yue heard him, she was stupefied. The situation was more complex than she had expected. Why had Lin Feng asked about Mu Chen? And now, why was this guy asking about him?
Did they know something about Mu Chen?
The strong cultivators of the Jing Clan frowned. The Jing Clan had publicly announced that Mu Chen had left and didn’t dare show up, but actually he had been imprisoned by them, he was in their black tower. They couldn’t say that, of course!
“It’s Mu Chen’s problem. What does that have to do with the Jing Clan?” retorted a strong cultivator of the Jing Clan icily.
“If Mu Chen shows up, we won’t get involved in your deployment mine competition. If you are sure that Mu Chen won’t show up, we’ll use our full strength to help the Yu, Wen, and Feng clans take your deployment mine!” warned Tian Chi. He sounded neither angry nor happy, quite calm and composed. When the members of the Jing Clan heard him, they all frowned and looked unhappy.
“Insolent!” said a strong cultivator of the Jing Clan icily.
Jing Yan shouted coldly, “If you want to fight, I’ll fight against you!”
Tian Chi remained silent and nodded. Then, he turned around and looked back at the people from the Feng Clan. Hou Qing Lin, Ruo Xie and the others came out of their group and rose up in the air, they said to the members of the Feng Clan, “We’ll help the members of the Feng Clan take the Jing Clan’s deployment mine, does the Feng Clan agree?”
“They are together!” When everyone saw that, they frowned. Those strangers who were extremely talented were a group!
At that moment, everybody understood something abnormal was going on.
The eyes of the Feng Clan’s members twinkled. Many people stood up and looked at Hou Qing Lin and said, “Brother Hou, do you know them?”
“Ruo Xie, Tian Chi, and the others are my fellow disciples.” said Hou Qing Lin calmly. The eyes of the Feng Clan’s members glittered. Ruo Xie and Tian Chi were extremely strong, they had seen that with their own eyes. They were all Hou Qing Lin’s fellow disciples. If Ruo Xie and the others respected Hou Qing Lin that much, it meant that Hou Qing Lin was even more terrifying than they were…
When they thought about that, the members of the Feng Clan were excited. If they agreed, they might be able to take the Feng Clan’s deployment mine!
“Alright, today is our deployment mine competition! Since you, Brother Hou, want to help us, we are naturally ready to use our full strength to take their deployment mine.” replied the strong cultivators of the Feng Clan happily.
Hou Qing Lin nodded at Tian Chi, and Tian Chi looked at the members of the Wen Clan.
“We all agree to help the Wen Clan take the Jing Clan’s deployment mine too. What does the Wen Clan think?” asked Tian Chi as well.
“We agree, of course!” replied the strong cultivators of the Wen Clan, smiling broadly. How could they refuse?
At that moment, the members of the Jing Clan all looked very upset. Those people were plotting against them!
“Jing Yan, no matter what, you have to win this battle and obtain the Yu Clan’s deployment mine!” said the strong cultivators of the Jing Clan. They had the feeling that losing their deployment mine was suddenly a possibility. They hadn’t thought these people would plot against them.
“Yes!” agreed Jing Yan firmly.
However, at that moment, Tian Chi said to the members of the Yu Clan, “We agree to help the Yu Clan obtain the Jing Clan’s deployment mine and to protect your own. Trust me.”
The strong cultivators of the Yu Clan looked at Tian Chi. Trust him once again?
“What do you intend to do?” asked a strong cultivator of the Yu Clan.
“Leave this last battle to us,” said Tian Chi calmly. The strong cultivators of the Yu Clan frowned. Could they gamble with their deployment mine at this stage?
“I’ve heard that Yu Lin wasn’t as strong as Jing Yan. If Yu Lin fights, you’re almost certain to lose the deployment mine. If Yu Lin loses, you won’t have any other strong cultivator to fight. If we take their mine, you’ll get your share of the profits. If you trust me, even if we lose, you’ll still be able to share the Jing Clan’s deployment mine,” continued Tian Chi.
The members of the Yu Clan remained silent for a few minutes, talking telepathically. After a few minutes, someone asked, “Who will you send?”
“Me,” said someone.
Everybody turned around and saw a blind sword cultivator. He walked out slowly, his eyes all white. He was quite calm, and didn’t look like a strong cultivator at all.
When the Yu Clan saw Jian Mang, they remained silent. Could they rely on a blind man to keep their deployment mine?
“I don’t agree,” said Yu Lin icily.
“You don’t agree, that’s your problem. We came to help. If your mine gets stolen, you won’t be able to help us take the Jing Clan’s deployment mine afterwards, so…” rebutted Tian Chi icily.
“Alright, you can do it!” said a strong cultivator of the Yu Clan at that moment.
“Grandpa?!” Yu Lin was stupefied.
“They’re right. The chances of you winning are low. Even if we lost, we’ll still be able to take the Jing Clan’s deployment mine. Let them fight!” said the old man calmly. All the other members of the Yu Clan remained silent.
Jian Mang slowly walked out and landed on the battle stage. He looked like an ordinary man, and on top of that a blind man.
Jing Yan also jumped and landed on the battle stage, making the whole deployment mine area shake violently. He had an advanced understanding of deployment spells, and was extremely strong. The air he had was like he had won already.
“You’ll die,” promised Jing Yan icily. Then he started moving, and the air began to rumble with power. The whole deployment mine was trembling. Furious dragons roared, and energies surged towards Jian Mang.
At that moment, Jian Mang also moved. He used his speed, and moved faster than almost anyone in the crowd could follow.
Sword lights appeared and sliced through the air, slashed through the dragons. They couldn’t even see his after-images!
“So fast, like light!” blurted out someone.
Jing Yan was astonished, too. He frantically released as much Qi as he could as he cast deployment spells. An incredible amount of strength tried to catch Jian Mang. However, at the same time, Jian Mang suddenly opened his eyes and brilliant lights emerged from them. When Jing Yan saw them, he was blinded.
“No!” Jing Yan’s heart twitched. What kind of strength was this? His soul was being oppressed. Light Dao! He had had no time to fully release his strength!
At that moment, the members of the Jing Clan were astonished and shaking, they stood up and shouted, “Jing Yan!”
At that moment, they were all surprised, and worried for Jing Yan!
The sword lights just flickered, and destroyed everything in their way. Blood splashed. The sword lights nearly cut Jing Yan’s body in two. The strong cultivators of the Jing Clan jumped out to catch him.
They stopped the bleeding. People’s hearts were pounding. How strong! Who were these people?!
“Who are you?” the strong cultivators of the Jing Clan demanded of Jian Mang. This bunch of bastards, they had thoroughly ruined the Jing Clan’s plans… and now they wanted to take the Jing Clan’s deployment mine!
Hou Qing Lin came out and stood in the air, he looked at the members of the Jing Clan.
“My name is Hou Qing Lin. Mu Chen is my teacher!”
“My name is Tian Chi, Mu Chen calls me Little Chi, Mu Chen is my teacher!”
“My name is Ruo Xie, Mu Chen is my teacher!”
They all came out and stood in the air, Mu Chen’s name was resonating everywhere and making Qing Shan City shake!
