"What? He disappeared?"
When the Cult Master heard that, he frowned and displeasure showed on his face.
In the entire hall, the various sects who had come to watch the show, including the Blood Kaiser and the Ice Palace's Great Priestess, had been invited in. However, after a round of questioning, the Cult Master came to a realization that the young man was nowhere to be found.
"Haha, he has probably escaped?" Seated at the very top, the Great Envoy laughed and said, "He might have some kind of sixth sense, or some precognition technique? He sensed that there was danger and thus ran off?"
The Blood Kaiser threw a displeased glance at the Great Envoy and said, "Lord Cult Master, who is this person? To think that he's allowed on the main seat! Aren't you going to introduce him to us?"
The Great Envoy stopped the Cult Master from introducing him and casually said, "It's just nice that all of you are here. Then let's get this settled with all at once. There's only one thing to say. From today onward, all the sects in the Horned Frogs Valley must join the Radiant Cult."
The Great Envoy's words immediately caused dissatisfaction to arise. The few hundred people started to make a commotion, and the entire hall seemed to have been turned into a marketplace.
The Blood Kaiser was the first to stand up and say, "What kind of joke is this? You want our Circle of the Crimson Moon to join the Radiant Cult? As long as I'm alive, this is impossible."
"Yeah, that's right! That's right! It's impossible!"
"Aren't the Radiant Cult being too domineering?!"
In that moment, the public sentiments went wild and the Blood Kaiser looked at the Cult Master and asked, "Cult Master, are these your wishes? For all of us to join the Radiant Cult?"
The Cult Master did not say anything. However, the Great Envoy laughed out loud and said, "Those who won't join can all die."
The Great Envoy once again sunk his hand into void space and the countenance of the Blood Kaiser instantly turned grim as he quickly retreated. However, while he was retreating, he suddenly dropped to the ground and started to puke blood incessantly. He glared at the Great Envoy and asked, "What have you done?!"
"I've only crushed your stomach. Don't worry, you won't be dying anytime soon."
Seeing that the Great Envoy had easily defeated the Blood Kaiser with a single move, the entire hall immediately turned silent. Everyone was as silent as a cicada in the winter. They looked at the Great Envoy sitting on the main seat, their gazes filled with terror.
The Blood Kaiser was a senior second transition expert recognized in the entire valley. The experts of the hall had in one way or another been on the receiving end of his domineering ways. Which of them were unaware of how powerful the Blood Kaiser was?
However, to think that the young man on the main seat could casually defeat him in just a single move... How terrifying were the young man's abilities!
Even more so when the Cult Master took a step forward and said calmly, "The Great Envoy is the true owner of our Radiant Cult. His powers are unfathomable. I'm not his match either, so I'd advise everyone to stop any futile resistance."
Hearing the Cult Master's words, everyone exchanged glances. The next moment, they all felt a pressure on their hearts, as if they had been grabbed by something. Even the Ice Palace's Great Priestess was wearing a pale countenance as she looked at the Great Envoy in disbelief.
To think that in but an instant, everyone in the hall had been brought under his control!
Everyone was infuriated, but dared not say a single word. The other party's abilities were far too terrifying. Such power and means had far surpassed their imagination.
The Great Envoy broke into a faint smile and said, "Alright, it seems like there's no other objections, right?"
No one dared to make a sound. Feeling the terror of having their hearts being grabbed tightly, not a single person dared to rebut what the Great Envoy said.
The Great Envoy laughed coldly in his heart, 'A bunch of good-for-nothings. Why does the upper echelon want to keep these people? They don't cultivate black magic and will only end up being cannon fodder. So what if they've completed the second transition?'
Looking at this scene, Sean exclaimed to himself, 'Master was right. The Great Envoy is far too powerful. Even if that young man from earlier was around, he would probably not have any means to deal with such skills that allow for attacking the internal organs directly.'
Thinking of this, he let out a bitter laugh, feeling that the way he had insisted on persuading them was really a joke. It was like advising a tiger not to fight against a hare.
Just then, the door to the hall was kicked opened and Fang Xingjian walked in. He scanned the place and looked at the Great Envoy who was seated on the main seat.
Sean was slightly taken aback, "You didn't escape?"
"Escape? Why would I need to escape?" Of course, Fang Xingjian had not escaped. Not only did he not escape, but he had also searched through the entire palace, found the abducted children and women, and had let them go.
With that, he was able to affirm that Tyrant, who had turned into a bangle, had not lied.
Abducting children and women, handing them over to an existence like the Terrene Shrine for them to conduct human experiments... Thinking back on the situation within the Terrene Shrine's base he had went to made Fang Xingjian's eyes blaring with killing intent.
"I'm here to kill you guys. Those who don't wish to die better not be making any reckless moves. I'll kill whoever moves."
Everyone looked at Fang Xingjian as if they were looking at a lunatic.
It was true that Fang Xingjian's performance on the metal mountain was very strong, but for him to want the Cult Master to also bow down to him in submission, for him to want to subdue the Great Envoy in the hall... Fang Xingjian's abilities were still a far cry off.
The Ice Palace's Saint could not help but said, "Are you crazy? Can't you see what's the situation now?"
The Priestess wore a contemptful expression, "Kill? Haha, do it if you can. There's no one stopping you."
The Ice Palace's Great Priestess also shook her head. Although Fang Xingjian appeared to be quite powerful, when compared to the Great Envoy's elusive means that caught people unaware, he was still far from that kind of strength, in comparison.
A hint of displeasure flashed on the Cult Master's face. He asked, "That is the young man you were talking about?"
Sean nodded, "That's him."
The Great Envoy looked at Fang Xingjian with some interest and said, "Kill us? I'd like to know how you're going to kill us."
After hearing the information that Tyrant, who was in the form of a bangle, had said to him, Fang Xingjian looked at the Great Envoy and said, "You're from the Terrene Shrine, right?"
"Hmmm?" Hearing that his identity was revealed, the Great Envoy's countenance changed and his gaze when looking at Fang Xingjian was now filled with killing intent.
"Since you're a member of the Terrene Shrine, then it's right."
The next moment, the Prodigious Demolition Sword Physique was activated and Fang Xingjian punched out. He appeared behind the Great Envoy with a flash and the latter's head was completely demolished.
However, under everyone's terrified and astonished gazes, the Great Envoy's corpse swelled up crazily and everyone cried out and retreated back. However, they saw that the increasing size of the lump of flesh which the corpse had turned into burst out of the hall. Many buildings and tall walls were knocked down. In the blink of an eye, he had turned into a mountain of flesh that was several hundred meters tall.
The mountain of flesh was in the shape of the buddha, and endless gray flesh palms rose from his back and a terrifying sound wave was released from the Buddha's mouth.
"Scram over here! I'm going to kill you!"
Just a simple bellow like this had sent explosive shock waves out, flattening the entire Radiant Cult's palace.
The Ice Palace's Saint, the Great Priestess, the Blood Kaiser, Eldest Martial Brother Sean, the Cult Master, and many others made their escape at rapid speed. Looking at the terrifying monster in front of them, their hearts were drowned by terror.
"What is that?"
"To think that he destroyed the entire palace with a single attack!"
"What kind of damage prowess is that..."
Under everyone's unbelievable gazes, Fang Xingjian appeared above the flesh buddha's head in a flash.
With a maniacal bellow, over a thousand palms which had appeared on the flesh buddha's back slapped out. Each of them directly sunk into void space.
Looking at this scene, everyone was even more terrified. The Blood Kaiser shouted out in disbelief, "How is that possible?! To think that he can use that ability even after turning into such a state?!"
Each palm was the size of a small automotive car. Thinking of how over 1,000 such palms had sunk into void space, smashing into Fang Xingjian's body with boundless power...
Everyone only felt extremely astonished and terrified.
Sean looked at this scene in a daze, thinking of only a single thing.
'A power like this? An attack like this? Other than a Divine level expert, is there really someone who can defeat him?'
The next moment, everyone's eyes popped out, as if they were going to fall out from their eye sockets.
There were no explosions, nothing was torn apart, nor was there a rain of blood. Other than swaying a little, Fang Xingjian, who was above the flesh buddha's head, was completely unscathed.
"How is that possible?!" The flesh buddha screamed, "What on earth is wrong with your body?!"
Putting aside Fang Xingjian's flesh and bones, he was not even able to smash Fang Xingjian's head, blood vessels, and internal organs.
Level 29 one tier perfection. With his body's toughness reaching the level of a level 29 Superior Divine Weapon, this was how sturdy it was!
Fang Xingjian let out a savage laugh, raised his fist, and under the flesh buddha's terrified gaze, his martial will came gushing forth as he said, "It's my turn now."
