“Although you’re powerful, I am still going to kill you with my spiritual strength. You won’t be able to get rid of me. The Tao Tie’s spiritual strength was all absorbed by me, and my spiritual strength has already reached the Divine King realm. My spiritual strength can even be used as an attack now. Let me see how you are going to conquer my spiritual strength. Haha.” 

Xuanyuan Canglan was very confident. The Spiritual Strength of a Divine King sounded so terrifying. There might not even be any existences like that in the entire Linhe Boundary. Being at the peak of the Divine King Realm was considered as an unparalleled expert already. Moreover, it was extremely difficult to advance the spiritual realm. Some of the experts might have very formidable combat strength but their spiritual realm might not be as powerful. That was why their cultivation realm was limited. The stronger the cultivators, the harder it would be for them to advance their spiritual strength. 

“Let’s try, then. Let’s see who is going to smile until the end. In terms of combat technique, I might not be as great as you. However, if you are going to devour me with your spiritual strength, I will not give up so easily.”

Jiang Chen smiled coldly. Suddenly, an overbearing spiritual strength swept across in all directions, pressing against Xuanyuan Canglan. Jiang Chen’s spiritual strength had also already reached the Divine King Realm, unexpectedly.

“How could this be possible? You’re only a Mid True God, but you already have a Divine King’s spiritual strength.”

Xuanyuan Canglan’s eyes were filled with shock. The term ‘monstrous’ was not enough to describe Jiang Chen. Everyone was drumstruck and they could not express their shock with words at all.

“My spiritual strength is very powerful, that’s why I never even dared to use it. Since you are that ignorant, I am going to use it to fight you. Hahaha.”

Jiang Chen laughed loudly. Although his spiritual strength was very powerful, he had never dared to simply use it. Otherwise, there would be many chasing after him to kill him. He would be seen as monstrous if he demonstrated such a dreadful spiritual strength. He knew that many experts would put a bounty on his head.

“Okay, I am going to see how you are going to fight me. I have obtained the Tao Tie’s spiritual strength and my soul could even devour others’ souls. Although we both have Divine King Realm spiritual strength, it’s impossible for you to conquer me.”

Xuanyuan Canglan was still very confident. Jiang Chen had a very limited cultivation realm, however now was the best time for him to display his spiritual strength.

“Spiritual Devour! I am going to devour the heavens!”

With his formidable spiritual strength, Xuanyuan Canglan smashed the void and was ready to devour Jiang Chen’s soul.

“Buddhism's light shines upon the world. Great Soul Derivation Technique!”

Jiang Chen casted the Great Soul Derivation Technique at this moment. The two of them were wrestling against each other. It’s hard to say whether Xuanyuan Canglan’s devouring strength or Jiang Chen’s Great Soul Derivation Technique was superior.

After the battle went on terrifyingly for a while, it seemed like Xuanyuan Canglan had the upper hand. The Tao Tie’s nature of devouring souls has always been unique throughout the ages. He was able to devour everything, including souls and bodies, and turn them into nourishment for increasing his own strength. 

“Such power, this Great Soul Derivation Technique. But I am going to devour all of the souls here and see how you are going to fight me.”

Xuanyuan Canglan could not hold it anymore. He immediately looked at the hundreds and thousands of broken souls in the Burying Soul Mountain. Once he devoured all of the souls here, he would definitely become even more powerful than Jiang Chen soon.

“All of these would be my nourishment. Hahaha. They are going to help me break through to the Divine King Realm. Once my spiritual realm advances, my combat strength would definitely become even more powerful.”

Xuanyuan Canglan was incomparably excited. At this moment, he kept devouring those souls unceasingly. Sword God Xue Liang and the others’ souls were all under Xuanyuan Canglan’s suppression. They lost all of  their strength to counter attack. 

Jiang Chen frowned. Countless souls had been devoured by Xuanyuan Canglan and he had turned all of them into nourishment. If this continued, Jiang Chen would soon be defeated.

“Jiang Chen, you don’t deserve to fight me! I am going to be an emperor in the future.”

Xuanyuan Canglan’s pride was overbearing, and he disdained the world.  

Jiang Chen suddenly had an idea and he closed his eyes slightly. At this moment, he felt that there were weak souls helping him strengthen his own spiritual strength. It was nothing related to devouring, but was a connection. It was a connection between him and that soul. Although those souls were weak, there were hundreds and thousands of them. Once all of them combined together, they would become an enormous spiritual strength. Moreover, these spiritual strengths carried the strength of faith!

“Why did it become like this?”

Jiang Chen found it unbelievable while looking at those souls that came and combined into his soul. He was truly astonished.  

“With my broken body, my soul goes back to the void. With my faith, I am going to give you a hand as you are the saviour who will eliminate evil and restore justice to the world.”

Jiang Chen looked at the spiritual strength combining into his soul by themselves. He was deeply moved because all of these souls were the souls he released from the Great Yu Soul Forming Light in the past. All of these souls were willing to go back to the void and help him break through his spiritual strength realm. They even came with the strength of faith which helped him absorb those hundreds and thousands of souls faster. 

It’s not only their souls but also their prayer and faith. Jiang Chen had already helped them get rid of the suffering by being trapped in the Great Yu Soul Forming Light. However, they were all going to be devoured by the Tao Tie soon at this critical moment. That's why they chose to contribute themselves to Jiang Chen’s advancement. These were the strength of faith that helped Jiang Chen’s spiritual strength advance dreadfully. More importantly, they left no negative effects on Jiang Chen at all as they were all turned into Jiang Chen’s strength willingly.

“Why? Why did it become like this?”

Xuanyuan Canglan’s face was initially filled with a smile, but now he was terrified because Jiang Chen’s spiritual strength was increasing faster than his. Moreover, it was not a smooth process for him to devour the souls as all of these souls looked ferocious and they were filled with hatred towards him. These were very toxic to his soul as they would become the inner demons in his heart in the end.

“Myriad spiritual creatures, Great Souls Return.” 

Jiang Chen closed his eyes tightly and a tear rolled down from the corner of his eyes. The spiritual creatures sacrificed for his glory. He had once saved these souls but now all of them had fulfilled his wish.

Kindness begets kindness.

Everything happens for a reason.

Suddenly, Jiang Chen opened his eyes and a dreadful spiritual strength covered up the entire Hidden Secret Realm within a few seconds. Everything, including the plants and animals, seemed all under his control. The feeling he had now was coincidentally similar to his experience of breaking the No Beginning Formation. However, it seemed even more realistic this time as he could sense everyone’s emotion now.
