Chapter 399: One Against Many
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
"Puny little summer bug, are you scared?"
Hearing Fang Xingjian's words, a hideous expression appeared on the face of the feminine-looking young man. The latter stretched out his arms like he were embracing the sky. In that instant, it was as if his chest had become a black hole, and numerous dragons shadows dashed out from his chest, charging toward Fang Xingjian's body.
This was the level 5 black magic, Dragon's Assault. It used the consciousness of dragons from other worlds to assault the opponents.
However, when faced with this attack, Fang Xingjian merely glared and sent the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent gushing out. He tore the dragon spirits into pieces like he was tearing the world apart, and he even bashed them into the mind of the feminine-looking young man, causing the latter to let out an agonizing cry.
At the next moment, Fang Xingjian pressed down his palm on the body of the feminine-looking young man. Wherever his palm passed by, the latter's blood and flesh would vanish and turn into waves of heat energy, scattering out into the world.
The young man's chest was penetrated by Fang Xingjian's palm, then it disappeared.
However, the young man was an expert from the Terrene Shrine. Fang Xingjian had once engaged in an intense battle with their bishop. So, how could he possible not be well-aware of these demons' strong vitality?
Without waiting for the young man to take any action, Fang Xingjian punched out repetitively. The Prodigious Demolition Sword Physique turned large areas of the young man's flesh and blood into heat. The sudden gush of hot air currents heated up the atmosphere, causing it to swell up and form shock waves which swept out into the surroundings.
Boom, boom, boom, boom! Currents swept out violently, and Fang Xingjian destroyed the feminine-looking young man's upper body completely. Not even a single particle was left behind.
When Fang Xingjian lunged out with his fists, about to crush the feminine-looking young man's lower body, a furious bellow rang out from behind him. A dragon person with green scales covering his entire body and a pair of wings on his back pounced toward Fang Xingjian.
This was the old steward who had been following the feminine-looking young man. The assassin had activated the level 5 black magic, Dragon's Parasitism, and unleashed explosively the powers of a dragon which had been residing in his body.
However, the powers of this dragon could only be comparable to those of a level 25 Conferred Knight at most. So, how could Fang Xingjian possibly be threatened by it?
Stretching out his five fingers, Fang Xingjian swung out behind him like he was sweeping rubbish away. Violent sword force gushed out, tearing the old steward into pieces.
However, this final attack completely used up the one second of Fang Xingjian's Heaven's Volition Sword Intent. Then Fang Xingjian turned back, wanting to attack the feminine-looking young man again.
However, at that moment, a stream of sword Qi gushed forth, slicing toward his head.
Infuriated, Fang Xingjian turned back and shattered the sword Qi with a punch.
The one who assaulted him with the sword Qi had been Sword Saint Sasa. When Fang Xingjian activated the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent, Sasa had already regained his focus. However, Sasa had not expected that the prowess of the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent, which Fang Xingjian had activated, was now far beyond what Fang Xingjian had unleashed previously. Fang Xingjian had annihilated the army of dragons instantly and even beaten up the feminine-looking young man to the extent that he was on the verge of being disintegrated.
Having seen Fang Xingjian's performance, Sasa understood that Fang Xingjian had completely suppressed and absorbed the essence of the Divine blood.
As Sasa thought of how Fang Xingjian's current great prowess was all from the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent and the Divine blood essence, his eyes turned bloodshot.
However, the powers Fang Xingjian had displayed when he instantly annihilated the army of dragons were far too powerful. It had stunned the two Sand Country assassins and Sasa within a very short period of time. Even though Sasa was raging with fury, he did not dash up at that very first instant.
This hesitation had lasted until the moment when the feminine-looking young man's old steward charged up to Fang Xingjian and the one second of the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent had finally ended.
Sasa had only dared to send out a sword slash when he sensed that the sword intent on Fang Xingjian was weakening and dissipating rapidly.
Simultaneously as when he sent out this slash, he let out a furious bellow through information currents, "This guy has absorbed the Divine blood essence! Kill him quickly while he has yet to fully digest the blood essence! Otherwise, all of us will have to die!"
However, the current Fang Xingjian was no longer the same as before. Confronted with Sasa charging over toward him, Fang Xingjian tapped out with a single finger, sweeping out with a series of Ether Sword Ripples and sending Sasa flying into the distance.
With a rumble, Sasa collided to the ground, kicking up dust and sand into the air.
Simultaneously, an overwhelming amount of sand was gushing and pouncing toward Fang Xingjian. However, just as the endless amount of sand encompassed Fang Xingjian's entire body, ten streams of Ether Sword Ripples shot out and blasted the sand off, creating a void space through their slashes.
Fang Xingjian did not take the opportunity to continue with his attacks. Instead, he looked at his Stats Window. His potential points had unknowingly increased to over 200,000 points. Additionally, as the Divine blood essence continued to be digested, his potential points also continued to increase rapidly.
Recalling what Sasa had said earlier, Fang Xingjian thought to himself, 'The Divine blood essence? This is... fantastic.'
With a dash, Sasa sent out over 10,000 streams of sword Qis swirling out. Even the air would shatter wherever they passed by. Rumbling sounds rang out continuously like over 10,000 claps of thunder. It was also as if the ground, which was deep in the earth's crust, was cracking.
Simultaneously, over 100 specialty seeds throughout Sasa's body unleashed explosive auras, flashing ceaselessly on his body like starlight.
He had detonated 100 specialty seeds at once in order to move the invisible sword Qis.
Sasa's invisible sword Qis had the ability to slash through the heavenly thunders and terrestrial magnetism forces in physical material. When a practitioner reached level 26 and was able to recognize physical particles, the prowess of this sword technique would improve in leaps and bounds, becoming increasingly stronger.
Moreover, Sasa had taken it one step further and detonated 100 specialty seeds in order to give an additional boost to his sword moves. Then his sword Qis slashed through the air. One had to know that even the air itself was formed from many physical particles, and each particle as like a small world of its own, containing boundless energy.
However, right now, Sasa was slashing through the connection between these particles directly in order to provoke the powers of these small worlds into exploding.
This was the equivalent of refining the powers in the small worlds of one's body and then bringing them outside.
The attack from the invisible sword Qis smashed through the air and destroyed many small worlds. It brought about a state which seemed like they were out to destroy all living things as well as the entire world.
This was Sasa's full prowess. Wherever the sword Qis passed by, it was as if everything was destroyed. Endless light and heat burst forth, dealing great destruction within a range of several kilometers.
The ground was vaporized, and the sword Qis, which were moving at a rate of several meters per second, turned everything it came across into dust.
Fang Xingjian, the target, was encompassed by the shock waves and light in that very instant.
Then at this moment, Sasa no longer hoped that he would be able to capture Fang Xingjian and absorb his blood. He was now all out to kill Fang Xingjian. It was because he knew that if he were to hold back now and Fang Xingjian were allowed to continue to grow, the one who was going to die would be Sasa himself.
Be it was the sand or flame clouds, everything dissipated under this terrifying sword attack.
The flame clouds were extinguished by strong gales, while the sand melted under the high temperatures. Then the strong gales surged up over 10,000 meters up into the sky.
The immense explosions continued on for over ten seconds, turning everything within several thousand meters into barren land.
After half a minute, the two Sand Country assassins bore their way through the sand. A strong wave of hot wind gushed over toward them. It was so hot that it seemed like it would even be able to cook human flesh.
The two of them looked at the disastrous battlefield which had been completely turned into flat land. Their eyes were filled with astonishment. They had not expected Sword Saint Sasa to have still been hiding such a terrifying move.
"Is he dead?" The old assassin asked.
"If he was directly hit by this sword attack, it's impossible for him to survive." The female assassin frowned. "Damn it, if that's the case, then wouldn't the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor be destroyed as well?"
"It shouldn't be," the old man said. "The Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor is a level 29 Superior Divine Weapon that was made from Lord Domirov's bone remains. Even if it didn't manage to save Fang Xingjian, the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor should still be fine."
