Chapter 374: Return to Scarlet Flame Sect!
In terms of defense, Ye Chen had the Purple Demon Armor. In terms of weaponry, he had the Ternary Sword Array and the Heaven Rumbling Cauldron. Therefore, Ye Chen was almost invincible among Daemon King and G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants. Faced against an opponent like Ye Chen, the G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants from the Temple of War could only escape.
Ye Chen's Thunder Dash was incredibly fast. He had arrived in front of one of the G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants and snarled, “Slash!”
There was a sharp “hiss” and fresh blood splattered into the air. The G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant had been killed by the Ternary Sword Array.
Faced against a Tier Nine spirit artifact, the physical body of a G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant was equivalent to chopping melons or cutting vegetables.
With another “swish” of Ye Chen's right hand, the Searing Sun Sword, Celestial Ice Sword, and Storm Sword flew into the distance. “Slash, slash, slash”, one after another, Mystique Venerable Rank combatants were slaughtered.
After being possessed by the demonic Psyche in the Exclusion Zone, even though Ye Chen's consciousness had completely broken free of its control, every time he engaged in battle, he was still inevitably affected by the demonic Psyche. As a result, he became more bloodthirsty.
However, since these were cruel and heartless people, Ye Chen did not feel any guilt for killing them.
Seeing Ye Chen's Ternary Sword Array killing seven or eight people in a row, the remaining combatants felt a chill in their hearts. This person was like a G.o.d of death from the depths of h.e.l.l. No one could stop him. They could only run for their lives.
Ye Chen's Thunder Dash was extremely fast. With a “swoosh”, he came up to another G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant. His right finger twitched and the Storm Sword glinted. “Chop”, a large head flew into the air.
The G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants were petrified. Ye Chen's Thunder Flash was simply too fast. Once he used Thunder Flash, his speed was no less than some of the Boundless Stage combatants.
The remaining five G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants were scared sh*tless. All of them fled like headless flies.
There was another “swish”. Ye Chen's gold-armored soldier appeared before one of the G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants. As the halberd swung down, the G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant quickly raised his weapon to block. There was a loud clang, followed by a widespread power ripple.
At this moment, “swish, swish, swish”, a few rays of light flew by.
The G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant turned around and saw that those were flying daggers. He quickly used his weapon to block them. “Crack, crack, crack”, a few holes appeared on his weapon. The G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant examined the weapon in his hand with disbelief. After all, his weapon was a Tier Seven spirit artifact!
Before the G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant could recollect his thoughts, the flying daggers had already pierced through his body. His eyes gradually dimmed and he fell from the sky.
“Even if you're a G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatant, so what? If you dare to bully me, I'll kill you without any exception!” Ye Chen's eyes held a cold expression.
Out of the seven G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants, three were killed and four had escaped. Out of the twenty-over Mystique Venerable Rank combatants, more than half were killed. Ye Chen could not be bothered to chase after them.
One Buck raised his head and stared at Ye Chen with his eyes wide open. His jaw dropped so low that one could probably cram several eggs into his mouth at the same time.
“Boss is amazing…” One Buck felt his heart tremble. Boss had managed to kill almost half of the seven G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants in such a short time. Hovering in the air, Ye Chen looked like a G.o.d of death emerging from the depths of h.e.l.l.
In the distance, Zhu Gonggong felt its hoofs turn to jelly. To think that it had intended to s.n.a.t.c.h its treasure back from this person. It would have been turned into roast pork!
Zhu Gonggong paced back and forth for a while, then slipped away with a “swish”.
“Lost treasure can be recollected but if I lose my life, I can't get it back. I better escape for now. Next time we meet again, I, Zhu Gonggong will be a supreme powerhouse. When that time comes, I'll stomp on you with my hoofs.” Zhu Gonggong huffed twice and disappeared into the jungle with a “swish”. Soon, it had completely vanished from sight.
Ye Chen looked at the Demon Suppressing Watch. He saw that the Demon Suppressing Watch was vibrating more intensely. If he did not continue to supply Celestial Chi to the Demon Suppressing Watch, it would soon lose its effect.
Ye Chen stretched out his right palm. The Soul Pearl glided across the air and drew One Buck and the Golden Sun Condor in. Ye Chen kept the Soul Pearl and picked up the two Tier Nine spirit artifacts which were dropped by Wan Junxie and Hu Feng earlier. Lastly, he picked up the Demon Suppressing Watch.
The Demon Suppressing Watch shrunk rapidly.
Two figures flew out of the Demon Suppressing Watch. It was Wan Junxie and Hu Feng who were pinned underneath.
Wan Junxie and Hu Feng stood in the air, gasping for breath as they stared fearfully at Ye Chen below. Inside the Demon Suppressing Watch, their Celestial Chi had drained rapidly. Even their cultivation base had been weakened by sixty or seventy percent. Emerging from the Demon Suppressing Watch, they were still reeling from shock and dared not challenge Ye Chen.
Ye Chen calmly stowed the Demon Suppressing Watch back into his armguard s.p.a.ce. He threw a glance in Wan Junxie and Hu Feng's direction. With his current abilities, he still could not defeat a Boundless Stage combatant.

Wan Junxie and Hu Feng looked around. They saw dead bodies scattered all over. Three out of seven G.o.dly Venerable Rank combatants had been killed as well as countless Mystique Venerable Rank combatants. This was a huge loss for the Temple of War!
Especially for the Central Empire Ye Clan. The glory of their ancestors had been severely trampled over, yet they realized that they could not redeem themselves.
The tension between the Xiwu Empire Ye Clan and the Central Empire Ye Clan began from their ancestors and lasted until the present. Previously, the ancestors who came to the Central Empire took pride in their decision. Over the last few millennia, the Central Empire Ye Clan always thought that the Xiwu Ye Clan was trapped in a remote place and would never amount to anything.
However, on that day, a young man from the Xiwu Ye Clan trampled all over the Scarlet Flame Sect and stomped on them without any mercy. They suddenly realized that the Xiwu Ye Clan that they once belittled had achieved heights that they would never attain.
Some of them felt ashamed but inspired and committed themselves to their cultivation. On the other hand, some of them still held grudges and frustration in their hearts.
Ye Rou was pa.s.sing by the martial art training ground. Over this period, due to Ye Rou's natural talent for cultivation as well as the nourishment from Ye Chen's Soul-consolidating Pills, her cultivation had improved leaps and bounds. Ye Zong also began to train Ye Rou as the next sect leader. He spared no effort and even used a few treasures that the Scarlet Flame Sect had collected over the last few thousand years. As a result, Ye Rou became the only person over the last few thousand years who was allowed to enter the forbidden Mystique Moon zone which was situated behind the Scarlet Flame Sect mountains.
According to legends, the Mystique Moon zone was created by a highly-gifted ancestor of the Scarlet Flame Sect. The Mystique Moon zone existed even before the Ye Clan joined the Scarlet Flame Sect. Legends told of the first senior who entered the Mystique Moon zone, a brilliant prodigy who attained unimaginable accomplishments and later became immensely powerful. It was during that era that the Scarlet Flame Sect grew prosperous. Later on, the senior left the Great Eastern Continent to another place and never returned. Thus, the Scarlet Flame Sect's prosperity declined.
Now, Ye Rou was the second person to enter the forbidden Mystique Moon zone in the last few thousand years. After returning from the Mystique Moon zone, Ye Rou did not mention anything about her experience. Despite the burning curiosity among the disciples of the Scarlet Flame Sect, no one dared to ask questions.
Ye Rou looked into the distance, watching the sunset in the west. A trace of worry appeared in the corner of her eyes. She wondered what happened to Big Brother Ye Chen after he went to the Soul PaG.o.da. She recently received news that when the Soul PaG.o.da was opened, there was a large stirring, and that many hidden ancient families and major factions had gathered in the Soul PaG.o.da.
“Big Brother Ye Chen, you must return safely.” Ye Rou held a deep longing and concern in her heart.
“Little Miss Rou, are you still thinking of that boy? Please remember, you're the future leader of the Scarlet Flame Sect, you cannot be trapped by the delusions of love!” Beside Little Rou, an old woman croaked.
“Aunt Ye Yan, are you lecturing me?” Ye Rou glanced at Ye Yan with a strange glint in her eyes. Her pet.i.te face appeared sullen.
Ye Yan paled slightly and mumbled, “This servant wouldn't dare.”
“Little Rou, Grand Supreme Elder is just saying that for your own good.” Beside them, Ye Min spoke up on Ye Yan's behalf.
Ye Rou snorted softly and turned her head away. Ye Min and Ye Yan often nagged at her. She was sick of them. If Ye Min and Ye Yan spoke badly about Ye Chen, she would have chased them away. No one was allowed to badmouth Big Brother Ye Chen!
Ye Yan saw that Ye Rou looked unhappy and her expression turned sour. After all, her status in the Scarlet Flame Sect was considered quite respectable. Her cultivation base had reached peak Mystique Venerable Rank and was just a hair's breadth away from reaching G.o.dly Venerable Rank. Even Ye Zong treated her with respect. The only reason Ye Yan referred to herself as “this servant” was because Ye Rou was the only person to enter the forbidden Mystique Moon zone in the past few thousand years! From the moment Ye Rou came out of the Mystique Moon zone, her status was even higher than Ye Zong!
