CSG - Chapter 3139: Fusing Again
“The power of the fused swords is enough to kill this Xuanhuang beast. It is enough to make even First Heavenly Layer Grand Primes perish, let alone a measly Ninth Heavenly Layer Chaotic Prime.”
“But that’s only if it doesn’t escape!” Jian Chen was not confident. When he fused the swords, he needed time to charge up. Right now, he was afraid the Xuanhuang beast would escape while he was charging up. Just like that, not only would he endure the backlash, but he would even fail to kill the Xuanhuang beast.
Afterwards, once the might from the fused swords dissipated, the Xuanhuang beast could suddenly turn around and come back. By then, the consequences would be unthinkable.
Jian Chen was aware that when he fused the swords, they also possessed an effect to freeze up space and lock onto the target. However, this had to do with his life, so without absolute confidence, he truly was reluctant to take the risk.
“Zi Ying, Qing Suo, when I fuse the swords again, will this serpent dragon have any chances at escaping?” For the sake of safety, Jian Chen could only ask the sword spirits.
“Master, you have nothing to worry about. With your current strength and Qing Suo and my current condition, Ninth Heavenly Layer Chaotic Primes definitely have no chance of escaping once you fuse the swords,” said Zi Ying.
“Master, if your Chaotic Body reaches the sixteenth layer, you can even slay First or Second Heavenly Layer Grand Primes with absolute confidence once you fuse the swords,” Qing Suo added.
Over the years, Jian Chen’s strength had been soaring. The two of them obviously had not been stagnating either, slowly recovering in the process.
With the sword spirits’ assurance, Jian Chen completely stopped worrying. He could go about it boldly now.
Suddenly, he seemed to think of something else. He looked in the direction which he had come from and frowned slightly. “But there’s still another problem I haven’t dealt with. None of the Xuanhuang beasts chasing after me have left. They’ve all stopped there, refusing to leave this place. There’s the serpent dragon here right now, which obviously deters them from taking another step forward.”
“However, once I fuse the swords and kill the serpent dragon, the Xuanhuang beasts won’t have anything to worry about anymore. By then, I’ll be heavily injured from the backlash too. I’ll be completely powerless to do anything against them.”
“Even if ingesting the Twin-headed Lotuses here can help me heal, a few seconds is nowhere near enough for me to make a complete recovery.”
“All I can do now is wait. I need to wait for all these Xuanhuang beasts to leave.” Jian Chen hid his presence and hid on a tree, covering his entire body with the thick leaves. He began a quiet wait there.
“I’d like to see just how long you can wait there for me!” Jian Chen sat on a thick branch and silently recovered. His wounds happened to need some time to heal too.
This wait lasted for several days. Jian Chen had already recovered from most of his wounds, but the Xuanhuang beasts waiting in the distance showed no signs of leaving.
“How stubborn.” Hidden in the tree, Jian Chen peered into the distance and sighed inside. He felt extremely helpless.

If the Xuanhuang beasts did not leave, he would not be bold enough to fuse the swords. Otherwise, it would merely be like the mantis stalking the cicada, unaware of the oriole behind it.
However, the oriole obviously would not be him.
Jian Chen sucked in a deep breath and closed his eyes, continuing to heal!
At this moment, the serpent dragon coiled up in the valley that seemed to be slumbering moved, adjusting its posture. Its huge head rested on the ground gently and continued to sleep away.
Suddenly, it seemed to sense something. It snapped its eyes open and raised his head, gazing into the distance.
It was looking in the direction where the Xuanhuang beasts gathered.
Despite none of them setting foot in its territory, the serpent dragon felt like its pride was being severely challenged when over a dozen of its kind stared at it from beyond its territory.
In the next moment, the serpent dragon opened its colossal mouth and let out a deafening hiss.
Immediately, a terrifying sound wave swept through the surroundings as visible ripples, piercing the rock. Countless boulders and towering trees shattered as a result. The entire region shook.
In the distance, the Xuanhuang beasts that refused to leave all shuffled backwards. Fear filled their eyes.
In the next moment, the Xuanhuang beasts all scattered like birds, fleeing in all directions, no longer bold enough to remain around.
Coiled up in the mountain, the serpent dragon that guarded over twenty Twin-headed Lotuses shook its head and continued sleeping.
Seeing this, Jian Chen was absolutely overjoyed, as the Xuanhuang beasts’ presence had been troubling him. He never expected the master of this territory to proactively help him in chasing them away.
“Originally, you could have lived for a few days longer, but you just had to choose to die early. You can’t blame me for that!” Jian Chen thought inside. He had already recovered from eighty percent of his wounds, but the twenty-eight Twin-headed Lotuses were far too tempting. He was rather eager to obtain them all.
“Master, if we’ve guessed correctly, the heavenly resources you gathered earlier should be contaminated with the Xuanhuang beasts’ presence. These Xuanhuang beasts can use this presence to lock onto your location. Even if you kill the serpent dragon now, you can’t avoid the Xuanhuang beasts hunting you down.”
Right when Jian Chen was about to get to work, the sword spirits’ voices rang out in his head.
Jian Chen frowned in response. He had considered this possibility a long time ago. These Xuanhuang beasts were nurtured by the Xuanhuang Microcosm after all, so it was not strange if they possessed some special abilities. The jade boxes were completely insufficient to stop them from sensing the presence.
“You’re welcome to wait a little longer, master. I can vaguely recall what an expert mentioned in the past. The presence that the Xuanhuang beasts have left on the heavenly resources can only last a month at most.”
“A month at most? Alright, then I’ll wait for a few days longer.” Jian Chen could only give up on his plan for now. He hid away carefully in the forest, healing as he waited.
A month passed in the blink of an eye. As soon as it was time, Jian Chen immediately leapt down from the tree, having run out of patience a long time ago. He was ready to formally kill the serpent dragon.
He did not approach the valley where the serpent dragon slept. Instead, he travelled away in the opposite direction, only stopping when he reached a hundred kilometres away from the valley.
That was where his visibility was greatest!
Jian Chen hovered in the air. At that moment, his gaze became extremely sharp, staring straight at the valley that was vaguely visible. Then he lifted his arms over his head.
Gorgeous and resplendent violet and azure light rushed into the air. The sword spirits demonstrated their power, extending into the sky like two streaks of unmatched sword Qi, piercing through the thick clouds and mist condensed from Xuanhuang Qi.
As soon as the sword spirits demonstrated their might, the serpent dragon lurking in the valley sensed it. It woke up and raised its head. Its eyes locked onto Jian Chen’s location.
At this moment, Jian Chen abruptly brought his arms together. The azure and violet light over his head merged together with his movements.
Immediately, the world dimmed and paled. Chaotic Force filled with a presence of destruction was produced from thin air, immediately descending upon the Xuanhuang Microcosm with a paramount might that could annihilate everything.
The entire Xuanhuang Microcosm shook. Xuanhuang Qi surged violently and turbulently.
As soon as the Chaotic Force appeared, it caused a phenomenon of upheaval in the Xuanhuang Microcosm.
