Chapter 397: Capture Him
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
Seeing the feminine-looking young man walk closer and closer toward Fang Xingjian, Sword Saint Sasa got both angry and anxious.
Although the several tens of dragons were not able to hurt him, their hides and flesh were really tough. Usually, just a single stream of his invisible sword Qi would be able to slash through iron plates which were several meters thick.
However, right now, even when he slashed out with his 100-meter-long sword Qi, he was only able to create a bloody wound. At most, Sasa merely slashed through a few scales and flesh. He was totally unable to hurt the deeper part of the dragons' bodies.
This was especially the case as the dragons had huge bodies and were filled with vital energy and blood. So, they paid no heed to ordinary wounds at all.
By this time, the feminine-looking young man had arrived at a point ten meters away from Fang Xingjian. The three strongest dragons were by the feminine-looking young man's side, protecting him. He would only need to take just one more step, and he would be entering Fang Xingjian's area of defense.
Right now, Fang Xingjian had also entered the most critical juncture. The essence of the Divine blood in his body had already flowed throughout his body, through his limbs and bones. Streams of violent will continued to affect every single one of his cells, but they were forcefully suppressed by his extremely powerful willpower.
Even under such circumstances, Fang Xingjian continued to sense the battle situation around him. When he saw the several parties engaged in a chaotic battle, he was glad to stay at the side and watch. However, he had not expected that the feminine-looking young man from the Terrene Shrine would manage to suppress everyone single-handedly and then head toward him.
Right now, it was about time for the feminine-looking young man to reach Fang Xingjian.
Thinking of this, Fang Xingjian let out a sigh inwardly. In the end, he still had to use the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent. To use up 10,000 potential points in a single second, even Fang Xingjian would feel great heartache over that.
If it could wait till he had completely suppressed the Divine blood and all parties had already ended up in serious injuries, that would be good. However, reality did not always end up developing in the direction of the best situation.
As Fang Xingjian thought of this, he had already opened his eyes and stood up.
Seeing Fang Xingjian stand up, the feminine-looking young man's brows twitched, and he spoke in surprise, "Oh? Seems like you're still thinking of resisting?" He laughed, "Don't you see the situation around you?"
Yaris controlled a large area of flame clouds to surround over 100 huge dragons. However, although these dragons continued to let out agonized and furious roars, they showed no signs of weakening.
This was especially evident as there were over 20 of them who were continuing to spew out streams of chill to extinguish the flames. They managed to stop Yaris' attacks temporarily. Although they were placed at a disadvantage, they showed no signs of losing. This caused Yaris to feel both anxious and helpless.
After all, out of these dragons, there were several tens of them who were at the second transition level. This was the equivalent of Yaris being surrounded and attacked concurrently by several tens of second transition Knights whose bodies had been strengthened by ten times or more. Yaris was already considered to be quite powerful for him to be capable of remaining undefeated and still have the upper hand.
Seeing that Fang Xingjian had stood up, Yaris immediately sent him a message, "Get out of here quickly! This guy's black magic is too powerful, and we're not his match!"
However, when Yaris saw that Fang Xingjian was not moving, he felt both anxious and furious. He knew that Fang Xingjian's speed was very fast, so he might really be able to escape.
Therefore, he sent out a message once again, "Xingjian, don't go head-on against him. He must be an unrivalled genius the Terrene Shrine has been nurturing for the past ten years or so. You should make your escape back to the Great Western City and get Lord Governor and the others to help.
"If you stay here, I won't be able to leave either. You'll just be a burden."
However, Fang Xingjian continued to remain motionless, looking at the feminine-looking young man with a nonchalant look. "You're from the Terrene Shrine?"
"Mmm." The corner of the feminine-looking young man's lips curled up. "It seems that you're unwilling to take this lying down. Did you think that the branch which you destroyed was our Terrene Shrine's strongest?"
As he spoke, the feminine-looking young man laughed once again, "I know that you're unable to accept this. You think that your aptitude is unrivalled, and that you have extraordinary talent which surpasses others. From back when you were an apprentice till what you've achieved today, you probably haven't met many rivals, right?
"I understand such feelings very well. This is what being a genius feels like.
"However, there's still a difference between geniuses. Back when you were still on the path of a Knight, I had already set my sights on being out of this world. Our outlooks and visions are worlds apart, as different as clouds are from mud."
At the very end, the feminine-looking young man could no longer hold it back anymore and broke out in laughter. Compared to the cruel internal competition of the Terrene Shrine, he preferred to face the genius Knights from the Empire.
Each time he trampled on these so-called geniuses, talents, and prodigies, he saw how they suffered from crushing defeats by his hands. They had been defeated with such great ease despite being so proud of their powers... When he watched them shudder and wallow in desperation, the feminine-looking young man would always feel a strange sense of exhilaration.
Fang Xingjian did not say anything and just put out his right hand. Streams of fog, which were like the brilliant Milky Way, encompassed his arms. The Prodigious Demolition Sword Physique was now activated.
The feminine-looking young man laughed, as if he were looking at a young infant trying to oppose him. He looked at the three huge dragons before him and felt extremely confident.
These three huge dragons could only be summoned by his black magic, Surge of Ten Thousand Dragons, after he had paid an immeasurable price in order to merge them into his own body.
The crystal dragon's body was formed from a unique material. It was snow-white in color and extremely tough. Even a level 29 Conferred Knight, with his ability to destroy physical particles directly, would need to spend over ten minutes in order to slash through its body. The dragon had once received attacks from over 50 streams of level 6 black magic, but it had remained unscathed. It had even helped the Terrene Shrine dig up a huge mountain within half a month in order for them to set up a base. The crystal dragon's greatest defense was its terrifying strength and stamina.
The three-headed dragon on the other side was even more amazing. Each of its three heads could unleash toxins, fog, and lightning respectively. When the toxins were unleashed, they would be able to render a level 25 Conferred Knight with regeneration abilities down into a pool of blood. On the other hand, the fog had a powerful illusionary ability. With it, the three-headed dragon had once managed to easily hypnotize several thousand people in a town and bring them back to the Terrene Shrine's base.
The three-headed dragon's middle head was further able to unleash something similar to a sphere-like lightning bolt. Although it could only unleash one of those each day, it had once exploded a small city up into the heavens, turning it into dust.
As for the golden dragon under the feet of the feminine-looking young man, it was even more powerful. It could conceal its own presence as well as enlarge or shrink its size. When it was of an enlarged size, it could depend on their physical prowess to bring up an entire mountain by itself, and when it was of a shrunken size, it could directly drill its way into a person's brain. In the past, this golden dragon had managed to kill tens of second transition ferocious beasts single-handedly because of its abilities.
In trying to tame this dragon, the feminine-looking young man had sacrificed over 100 dragons.
The army of dragons in his body was the feminine-looking young man's greatest reliance. Be it him or the Terrene Shrine, they had paid a tremendous price in order to increase his abilities, making him what he was today.
Looking at Fang Xingjian's funny-looking movements, the feminine-looking young man smiled and waved his hand. "Only the strong have the right of speech.
"And right now, amongst everyone present, I'm the strongest. Therefore, what I say is the absolute truth.
At the next moment, aside from the golden dragon which was carrying the feminine-looking young man, the other two dragons each stretched out one of their dragon claws and swung out at Fang Xingjian from his left and right.
