Chapter 68 – The Ambitions of a Man
Yan Chen Yu suddenly felt like the ugly daughter-in-law who was finally going to meet the father-in-law. Of course, this daughter-in-law was not even close to ugly. From how Jiang Zhen Hai tried signaling Jiang Chen with his eyes, one could easily tell that this mayor was really satisfied with his future daughter-in-law.
Jiang Chen stood to the side with a gentle smile on his face. He didn’t voice an opinion.
“Kid, in my opinion, take this opportunity and marry Xiao Yu. Then, have your first night straight away!”
Big Yellow’s voice suddenly resonated in Jiang Chen’s ear.
Jiang Chen gazed at Big Yellow hopelessly. Right at this moment, everyone started paying attention to this dog. Yan Hong Tai and Jiang Zhen Hai remembered that there was a big yellow dog who had made a Heavenly Core Demon Lord surrender and kneel down; it must be the one in front of them. Their expressions immediately changed and turned serious. They didn’t dare show any disrespect.
“Young master, you’re finally back! Your servant has missed you so much!”
Jiang Cheng walked up to Jiang Chen’s side and bowed down politely, trying to get some attention.
“Jiang Cheng, you’ve done quite a lot during this period! Later you can go to the treasury and ask for 10 gold coins.”
Jiang Chen patted Jiang Cheng’s shoulder.
When hearing his young master mention 10 gold coins, Jiang Cheng immediately felt tears coming out of his eyes. He was so excited that he almost kneeled down on the ground and called Jiang Chen his ancestor.
“Let’s not just stand in front of the door. Please come inside, Chief Yan!”
Jiang Zhen Hai beckoned them in. Everyone followed him into the Jiang family’s main hall. Jiang Chen and Yan Chen Yu were the last to enter.
“Xiao Yu, do consider what my dad said just now.”
Jiang Chen said with a teasing smile.
Yan Chen Yu was startled, but she soon recalled the daughter-in-law matter. She instantly started blushing, “Big Bro Jiang Chen, you’re incorrigible!”
Later that day, the Jiang family threw a big feast. Everyone appeared joyful and happy. The Mu Rong family and the Lee family had vanished, making the Jiang family and the Yan family the only powers in their cities. Besides, from now on, these two families would be the only rulers of their territories. There were no more families who could be their match. They had become the kings of their lands.
Jiang Zhen Hai and Yan Zhan Yun were having an enjoyable conversation. Yan Zhan Yun didn’t stand up and leave until the night had arrived.
“The Yan family has just defeated the Lee family. There are a lot of things that needs to be arranged. I won’t take any more of your time here.”
Yan Zhan Yun respectfully held his fist towards Jiang Zhen Hai and said, “When brother Jiang has some free time in the future, you must come to Red city’s Misty Rain Tower. Let me be your host!”
“Sure, I’ll definitely pay a visit to brother Yan in Red city once I have some free time!”
Jiang Zhen Hai was a forthright man.
“That’s a deal then! I’ll be waiting for brother Jiang in the Misty Rain Tower. No need to send us off; we’ll be leaving now.”
Yan Zhan Yun said.
“Chen’er, help me send Chief Yan out.”
Jiang Zhen Hai’s face was filled with joy and happiness. He had never been so happy before.
Outside the Jiang family.
“Chief Yan, there’s one more thing I need your help with.”
Jiang Chen looked at Yan Zhan Yun.
“Please tell me what it is!”
Yan Zhan Yun asked.
“I’ve decided to leave in three days. I’ll be going to the inner parts of the Qi Province. Therefore, I will need some Mortal Restoration pills. I hope Chief Yan can help prepare some for me. Try getting those that have at least 70% effectiveness.”
Jiang Chen said. He didn’t know when he would come back after leaving, so he would need to make some preparations before leaving. Mortal Restoration pills were a must have item for all warriors, and Jiang Chen, who was cultivating the Dragon Transformation skill, needed them even more.
Jiang Chen didn’t ask the Yan family to prepare pills with 100% effectiveness because in this small city, pills with 100% effectiveness were incredibly rare. In addition, he could synthesize the pills whenever he desired to. And even if he ate them directly, the Dragon Transformation skill would automatically get rid of all the impurities.
“Rest assured Brother Jiang Chen, I’ll make sure you get pills!”
Yan Zhan Yun promised.
“Alright, I’ll be going to the Misty Rain Tower in three days, and then I’ll leave.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Big Bro Jiang Chen, I want to leave together with you in three days!”
Yan Chen Yu suddenly said.
“Leave together with me?”
Jiang Chen furrowed his brows, “Xiao Yu, you need to know that I am not going to travel in order to have fun this time.”
“I have given it some thought! Wherever Big Bro Jiang Chen goes, I’ll go too! I have the abilities to protect myself, so I won’t be your burden!”
Yan Chen Yu said firmly. It looks like she has made up her mind about this.
“If that’s her decision… Brother Jiang Chen, Yu’er has a Divine Body with Nine Yin Meridians. Staying here in Red city will just limit her potential; she has to leave this place sooner or later!”
Yan Zhan Yun nodded his head in agreement. Although he loved his daughter very much, he still needed to consider her future.
“Alright. Xiao Yu, start preparing for the journey once you go back. We’ll leave in three days.”
Jiang Chen said. He knew about the true potential of the Nine Yin Meridians better than Yan Zhan Yun did. Yan Chen Yu’s future was limitless, and this little city was surely going to limit what she could achieve. Besides, Jiang Chen had no reason to reject having a pretty girl staying beside him!
The same night, Jiang Chen went into Jiang Zhen Hai’s room.
“Chen’er, you’re here!”
When Jiang Zhen Hai saw Jiang Chen, his face turned soft.
“Dad, I’ve got something to tell you.”
Jiang Chen said.
“You’re going to leave soon, right?”
Jiang Zhen Hai said.
“So you knew.”
Jiang Chen smiled.
“I could easily tell! With your potential and abilities, you would have left this place sooner or later. Fragrant Sky city and Red city are too small for you; it’s a good thing to see the outside world and experience it! But don’t forget, this place will always be your home!”
Jiang Zhen Hai patted Jiang Chen’s shoulder hard. This was a special way for men to express their feelings. Jiang Chen could feel Jiang Zhen Hai’s reluctance to part from the force of this pat.
Jiang Chen felt his heart warm up and a sour feeling in his nose. Only now did he realize that he was Jiang Zhen Hai’s only son, and also the place where all his attention was.
“When will you be leaving?”
Jiang Zhen Hai asked.
“In three days.”
“Three days? So fast?”
A lonely look appeared in Jiang Zhen Hai’s eyes.
“Dad, don’t worry about me. I’ve made some arrangements for the Jiang family. Also, I’ll be giving you a few low-rank combat weapons. This will help strengthen the Jiang family!”
Jiang Chen said as he grabbed the low-rank combat weapons from his storage bag. They were obtained from Lee Chang Hao, Lee Chang Ming, and Chen Shuang. To him, these low-ranked combat weapons were nothing, but to the Jiang family, it was a rare treasure.
Jiang Zhen Hai looked at the three low-rank combat weapons, and his eyes immediately started glowing. Although he was the mayor of Fragrant Sky city, this was the first time he had seen a combat weapon.
“Dad, I can feel the fluctuation of your Yuan energy. I’m sure you’ll break through to the Mortal Core realm in a few days! When that day comes, you can pick one of these combat weapons for yourself.”
Jiang Chen said.
“With these low-rank combat weapons, the Jiang family’s strength will increase a lot!”
Jiang Zhen Hai nodded his head. The more he looked at Jiang Chen, the happier he became. After all that had recently happened, in his mind, his son possessed some incredible abilities, there was nothing he couldn’t do.
Over the next three days, Jiang Chen spent all his time together with Jiang Zhen Hai. He didn’t take a single step out of the Jiang family mansion. Jiang Zhen Hai also cherished every moment they now had together. To be honest, he could’ve broken through to the Mortal Core realm on the second day, but he held it down and decided to wait until Jiang Chen left.
Three days passed by really fast. Today, while the sky was still not completely bright, Jiang Chen brought Big Yellow and left quietly.
“Kid, don’t you want to say goodbye to your dad?”
Big Yellow asked.
“No, I’ve already said goodbye.”
Jiang Chen took big steps and walked away. He didn’t turn his head back a single time.
A man and a dog traveled with great speed. When noon arrived, they had arrived at Red city. Jiang Chen didn’t waste any time and hurried over to the Misty Rain Tower, meeting up with Yan Zhan Yun.
“Big Bro Jiang Chen, I’ve finished preparing!”
A smile like a blooming flower appeared on Yan Chen Yu’s face when she saw Jiang Chen. She walked happily over to Jiang Chen.
“Xiao Yu, have you really made up your mind?”
Jiang Chen reminded her again purposely.
“I’ve made up my mind!”
Yan Chen Yu nodded her head.
“Brother Jiang Chen, here are ten thousand Mortal Restoration pills. 800 of them are 100% effectiveness pills, and the rest of them are between 70% to 90% effectiveness!”
Yan Zhan Yun handed over a storage bag. Ten thousand Mortal Restoration pills, even Jiang Chen was shocked. He never expected Yan Zhan Yun to be so generous that he would give him ten thousand Mortal Restoration pills.
Such a huge amount of Mortal Restoration pills; even with the Misty Rain Tower’s money, it was almost impossible for them to have so many pills at once. The Mortal Restoration pills within the storage bag must be worth at least half of the Yan family’s total net worth.
“Thanks for your kindness, Chief Yan!”
Jiang Chen didn’t reject the pills. He immediately put away the storage bag; the Mortal Restoration pills were something he really needed, and the more the better. Yan Zhan Yun always wanted to find a way to repay Jiang Chen, and now he had the opportunity.
“Brother Jiang Chen, from now on, I’ll hand Yu’er over to you. I hope you can take good care of her!”
Yan Zhan Yun said with a serious expression. He only had one daughter, and she was the pearl in his life. It required great determination from him to let Yan Chen Yu leave this time. One of the reasons was because she had the Nine Yin Meridians, but the most important reason was that as long as Yan Chen Yu was with Jiang Chen, with Jiang Chen’s abilities, he would definitely be able to make sure that Yan Chen Yu stayed safe.
“Don’t worry, I won’t let anyone bully Xiao Yu!”
Jiang Chen held Yan Chen Yu’s tender hands. This was a man’s promise.
“Dad, when Yu’er is not by your side, you need to take good care of yourself! Yu’er will always miss you!”
Yan Chen Yu jumped into Yan Zhan Yun’s arms She couldn’t bear to part after all these years. This was the first time Yan Chen Yu would leave the Yan family for real.
“Just go, dad wishes his daughter will become someone great in the future!”
Yan Zhan Yun patted Yan Chen Yu’s shoulder softly.
Outside the city, two humans and a dog walked towards Origin Mountain. The handsome man was wearing a white robe, and he was emitting an aura of superiority. The young girl was wearing a purple robe. Her eyes were big and bright, and her teeth were pure white; she was gentle and beautiful, almost as if she was a fairy from the heavens. Next to them was a big yellow dog, his body sturdy and powerful.
This was Jiang Chen, Yan Chen Yu, and Big Yellow, all of them just emerging from Red city.
Jiang Chen turned around and gazed at the city. His lips curved upwards, mixed feelings filling his heart. After being dead for a hundred years and then being reborn, he had come to this remote place, and in just a short amount of time, he had managed to destroy the Mu Rong family and the Lee family, completely changing the rules of this territory.
And this was just the beginning. Jiang Chen didn’t only want to change the rules of this small territory. Sooner or later, he was going to change the rules throughout all of Saint Continent.
Today, he would begin his journey. After a hundred years, he was reborn, and now he would reclaim his past glory.
As a man with high ambitions, he would soar the skies and battle through the heavens, and with every inch he walked, he would leave a deep trace.
