Chapter 1576: He Is a Lunatic!
“Father, what are you…what are you doing?”
Cheng Gong walked over to her father as if she was a zombie.
She was proud. She thought of herself as better than others, especially in this Realm of Nine Heavens.
All of her pride was based on her father.
She thought that her father was a gorgeous man who was strong enough to have instructed Jiang Chen.
However, she had just realized that her whole life had been based on a lie.
“Hong, come here. Kneel down.”
Cheng Renlong recalled what his daughter had said. He was sure that she must have verbally offended Jiang Chen. Shaking, he hurried to pull Cheng Hong over to force her to kneel down on the cold ground.
Gazing at the woman’s expression, Jiang Chen shook his head.
Since he’d now been recognized, he didn’t have to go on disguising himself. He recovered his real looks in front of everyone.
The folks living in the Sacred City knew him very well. The whole city went into an uproar after they had seen his face clearly. Noise soared into the air.
“Ha, ha, ha.” Nan Gong laughed brightly and clearly.
He still remembered the day when he had brought Jiang Chen to the Dragon Field from the Fire Field. It seemed as if it had just been yesterday.
Jiang Chen had achieved such a high state before you could say Jack Robinson. It was really incredible.
“He…he is Jiang Chen?”
Cheng Hong wasn’t dumb. Seeing this, she realized right away what had happened.
No wonder Jiang Chen had been wandering outside the Gao Mansion.
No wonder Jiang Chen had been speaking to her father in a sarcastic tone.
Recalling the scene in which her father knelt down on the ground, Cheng Hong realized everything she was proud of was fake.
She came to herself. The others on the scene also realized what this was all about. They started to gossip.
“Father, I hate you!”
Cheng Hong burst into tears. She felt really ashamed. She got to her feet and ran away.
She was trying to push her way through the crowd as she always had done, but now no one in the Sacred City would make way for her.
Cheng Hong found she was stuck in the crowd. The sarcasm and disdain on everyone’s faces were exactly what could usually be seen on her face.
She felt dizzy. Then she fell and fainted.
Cheng Renlong was extremely anxious. He wanted to go to check on her, but he didn’t dare go because Jiang Chen hadn’t said what he was going to do with him.
“Go and see to her. Don’t forget to move out of the Gao Mansion,” said Jiang Chen.
Cheng Renlong looked up. He couldn’t believe what he had heard.
Jiang Chen…Jiang Chen let him go so easily?
“What? Do you think I’m a heartless and cruel devil?” Jiang Chen asked, amused.
“No, no, no, of course I don’t think so.”
Cheng Renlong hurried to shake his head. He didn’t look like the same majestic person that people used to know at all.
He hurried to run up to his daughter and picked her up.
“Make way. My daughter needs some air.”
Cheng Renlong started to shout at the crowd anxiously.
But soon, he found no one was moving out of his way. This also reminded him of the current situation.
“Guys, please. Please do me a favor!”
He stopped being so arrogant.
So, the folks of the Sacred City didn’t make things more difficult for him. They made way for him one after another.
“Jiang Chen. He is Jiang Chen.”
In the excited crowd, there were two pretty women who were feeling the most happy about Jiang Chen’s return.
They were Ying Wushuang and Yin Shuang.
They recognized Jiang Chen immediately. Then they walked up to see him.
However, after only a few steps they stopped.
It had been almost three years!
It had been almost three years since they had last seen Jiang Chen!
The current Jiang Chen was so extraordinary. Would he still remember them?
Even if he remembered them, would they be as close as before?
These doubts made them hesitate.
“What? Don’t you recognize me, an old friend of yours?”
In the end, it was Jiang Chen who spoke to them first with a smile.
In this way, Ying Wushuang and Yin Shuang could not hold in their emotions anymore. They rushed at him in an extremely excited manner.
After hesitating for a few seconds, they ran into his arms one after the other.
“B*stard, where did you go?”
Ying Wushuang was closer to Jiang Chen than Yin Shuang was. She had dreamed frequently about the days when she and Jiang Chen had been together during the last three years.
They were disciples of the Hero Palace back then. Jiang Chen had comforted her and encouraged her patiently so that her lonely heart finally felt some warmth.
It was exactly because of that that she had the nerve to call Jiang Chen a b*stard.
After she called Jiang Chen a b*stard, everyone around them got scared, and no one dared speak anymore. The whole Sacred City quieted down immediately.
They gazed at Jiang Chen attentively, waiting for his response.
“I’m really sorry. I have antagonized lots of people. If they knew I cared about you two, you would have become targets.”
Jiang Chen answered in a gentle voice, patting Wushuang on her back.
“Shoot. I found myself such a rival in love!” The scene scared the man who was interested in Ying Wushuang out of his wits. He hurried to run away.
Gazing at the other woman in his arms, Jiang Chen said, “Yin Shuang, long time, no see.”
Not until then did Yin Shuang realize they were under many people’s gazes. She jumped out of his arms like a startled rabbit, flushing, her heart beating fast.
She answered casually, looking up at Jiang Chen shyly.
Her voice was as beautiful as before. It sounded like the music from a wonderful musical instrument.
“My silly daughter. Be braver.”
In the crowd, the boss of the Bank of Sacred City was very anxious.
Seeing Jiang Chen so strong, he really wished he could run into Jiang Chen’s arms on behalf of his daughter.
“How is Crimson Moon?” Jiang Chen didn’t forget another good friend of his.
Speaking of this, Ying Wushuang and Yin Shuang exchanged a look. They held back answering his question.
“What’s wrong? Did something happen to Crimson Moon?” Jiang Chen asked anxiously.
He felt guilty whenever he thought about Crimson Moon.
She had killed her own father and overturned her own kingdom.
“Not long after you went to the Three Middle Realms, Crimson Moon’s character changed a lot. She became very emotional, sometimes very happy, sometimes very angry. She drove us away one day. But Wushuang and I guessed it was because Crimson Moon wanted us to leave before she lost control completely, so that we wouldn’t be hurt,” said Yin Shuang.
“Was she possessed by a devil?”
Jiang Chen couldn’t help but think that was the only reason, according to Yin Shuang’s description.
He thought of the last time he had seen Crimson Moon. Her state had had a huge enhancement, and he had already worried about her back then.
Nan Gong and Shi Gandang walked over, winking at the Lightning Thunder Race.
“Nan Gong, what’s your bet with the Lightning Thunder Race?”
“If we lose, we’ll leave the Sacred City. If they lose, they’ll leave the Realm of Nine Heavens.”
“I defeated you on behalf of the Sacred Institute’s disciples. But If I let you go like this, it’ll be too easy for you,” Jiang Chen said with a cold smile, looking at the Lightning Thunder Race.
“What are you going to do? Jiang Chen, you are notorious among the Ancients. Don’t you dare kill us,” Shuo Jin threatened.
“Shut your mouth!”
However, the Elder next to him interrupted. His voice sounded hoarse.
Shuo Jin was struck dumb. He was at a loss.
“You are a moron! Don’t threaten Jiang Chen. It’s common sense. Don’t you know that? He has problems. He is a lunatic!”
The Elder said anxiously, pointing at his head.
“Are you talking about me?”
However, although he was speaking through holy awareness, Jiang Chen still heard him.
“No, no, no. How would I dare. Jiang Chen, tell us how you will punish us. As long as you don’t kill us, we can talk.”
This Elder understood Jiang Chen pretty well. He knew that he could be persuaded by reason but not be cowed by force, so he hurried to beg for his mercy.
“I’ll imprison you for the moment. You will have your uses.”
At the thought of the upcoming invasion of the Demons, Jiang Chen smiled mysteriously.
This smile made the Lightning Thunders’ blood freeze.
