Seeing how Fang Xingjian had simply crushed Ye Huang and the Illumination Society's Chief, as his gaze swept past all of them, not a single person dared to answer.
Even Ye Huang and the Illumination Society's Chief, both of whom had remained undefeated for several decades, had lost. Who else would dare to step forth? Who would still dare to fight against the Vicious Knight?
The people from the Eternal Night Society and the Illumination Society gathered over to where their Chiefs were, looking as if their world had collapsed.
As for the Black Wings and other factions, they had all fell silent, as if they had all turned dumb.
There were still some hot-blooded individuals who wanted to speak up, but when Fang Xingjian's gaze turned in their direction, they felt as if a cold basin of water had been poured over them. Considering his gushing killing intent and the results of the battle he had fought against Ye Huang and the Illumination Society's Chief, they completely lost their voices.
Ice Palace's Great Priestess looked at Fang Xingjian, exclaiming inwardly, 'I never thought that even though I tried to overestimate Fang Xingjian's abilities, I would still end up underestimating him. His battle prowess is beyond my imagination!
'Especially that sword technique which slices through light rays... That was simply miraculous! It turns the impossible into a possibility.'
Ice Palace's Saint was also looking at Fang Xingjian, her gaze filled with astonishment and bitterness.
'Fang Xingjian had completed the second transition for only slightly more than half a year? To think that he had already reached this level...
'And to think that I was expecting him to fail here! Master was right. Was my judgement too weak and shallow?'
The scene in which Fang Xingjian had consecutively defeated Ye Huang and the Illumination Society's Chief was far too astonishing. Over 99% of the people were as silent as cicadas in winter, quietly acquiescing the victory.
Many people understood that soon after that day, a new legend would be born, and the name of the Ice Palace's Vicious Knight would spread through the entire Great Western Region.
Fang Xingjian then turned his gaze in the direction of the Illumination Society. A group of people gathered around next to the Illumination Society's Chief, who had been knocked out. Fang Xingjian said calmly, "What else does the Illumination Society have to say? If you still can't accept this, I'm right here. Feel free to challenge me anytime. There's no restriction in the number of people, abilities, or weapons of choice."
An elderly man stood up, bowing, looked at Fang Xingjian and said, aggrieved, "From today onward, our Illumination Society won't think about getting our hands on your equipment. From today onward, the Illumination Society won't ever view the Ice Palace as our enemy."
Fang Xingjian then turned to look at the people from the Eternal Night Society and asked, "What about you guys?"
From the Eternal Night Society, a middle-aged man stood up, waved his hand and said bleakly, "From today onward, wherever people from the Ice Palace are present, our Eternal Night Society will keep a distance."
Out of the three great sects, both the Eternal Night Society and the Illumination Society had been single-handedly suppressed by Fang Xingjian. Everyone's gazes then turned to the Black Wings.
When the Black Wings Demon saw Fang Xingjian's gaze, the corner of his lips curled up into a strange smile.
"Fang Xingjian, do you really think that everything's been set into stone?"
At the next moment, abnormalities appeared and a smell of sulfur and lava filled up the entire Dark Shadow Mountain. Countless crimson red fire sparks surrounded the entire mountain, as if a huge cover had wrapped up the whole mountain range.
Streams of gray fog frantically gushed in midair, with resonating howls that made one's heart tremble.
Sulfur, lava, and things that looked like ghosts filled up the air. Under everyone's astonished gazes, they felt as if they had just been brought from the mortal world into hell.
In the air, three figures came over, stepping on the air. It was the one-eyed old man, The School of Sword Arts' Supreme Chief, and the Black Wings' Darkness Demon Lord.
Fang Xingjian frowned as he looked at the three of them. He asked out in a loud voice, "Who are you guys?"
"Fang Xingjian, it's true that you have great talent. To think that you've already reached level 29 within a mere half a year or so! You've even reached one tier of perfection and become a Demigod." The Supreme Chief, with white hair, white eyes, and dressed in white clothes, looked at Fang Xingjian and calmly continued, "But with the three of us joining forces today, and with the setup of Death Dominion using the Ten Directional Hell's Flag, you're doomed to die."
After saying that, he sighed, "Pity, what a pity. An amazing young talent of his generation will fall today."
The one-eyed old man said, "Fang Xingjian, if you're willing to turn yourself in without putting up any resistance, then we'll spare your life."
The Darkness Demon Lord broke into a laugh, "What's there to talk about. Just let me tear him apart."
Fang Xingjian did not say anything, but took in a deep breath, trying his best to recuperate the damage and energy depletion his body had just sustained.
In his consciousness, Tyrant shouted loudly, "Damn it! That one-eyed old man was the previous Governor of the Beize Continent, and the other guy is the Darkness Demon Lord. Those two are fine, but the problem is the guy in the middle. He is the Supreme Chief of The School of Sword Arts, Heng Tianxiao."
"The School of Sword Arts' Supreme Chief? Is he very powerful?"
"He's not just powerful, he's also attained two tiers of perfection, one in body toughness and one in specialty seeds. He's a down-to-earth Demigod. His sword arts cultivation is probably not below yours. That makes him extremely terrifying.
"It means that both of you have a similar level of body toughness, but that he has also attained perfection in his specialties and all of his physical abilities, including his agility, strength, and explosive force, so that they are all above yours. Don't try to take him on in close combat." Tyrant could not help but frown to himself, "And there's that Ten Directional Hell's Flag... That should be a Divine Weapon of the Ancient Path of Hell. They've also set up the Death Dominion, but we don't know anything about its powers."
Fang Xingjian listened and nodded to himself. His vital energy and blood continued to circulate in his body as he relieved the fatigue from the previous consecutive battles. His lungs, which were ether organs, continued to swallow and release energy, replenishing the recent depletion.
At the same time, since the other parties had all exposed their identities, Fang Xingjian could not be bothered to hide anymore. He stimulated his bones and muscles to revert to his original appearance.
Everyone else looked at this scene with different thoughts. Occasionally, gasps resounded.
This was especially when in the earlier conversation, they had brought up Fang Xingjian's name. And when Fang Xingjian reverted to his original appearance, everyone cried out in surprise.
"It's Fang Xingjian?!"
"It's that genius Conferred Knight from the Great Western Region? The Fang Xingjian who created the Rebirth Sword Technique?"
"So it's him. But hasn't he completed his transition only around half a year ago? To think that he had managed to defeat Ye Huang and the Illumination Society's Chief!"
"They said that he's attained perfection in his body's toughness and has become a Demigod? How... How is that possible?!"
Fang Xingjian revealing his original appearance made it even more unbelievable.
Who could conceive that the person who had defeated Ye Huang and the Illumination Society's Chief was actually a young man barely aged 18 or 19?! Such talent, such abilities... It was truly unbelievable! In a normal situation, they would never have accepted the possibility. However, now that the truth was placed right before them, they had no choice but to believe it.
Concurrently, people also started to recognize the identities of the three people in the air.
"That's The School of Sword Arts' Supreme Chief!"
"That old man looks very familiar... I remember now! He's the previous Governor of the Beize Continent!"
"And there's the Darkness Demon Lord from the Black Wings. To think that they've joined forces!"
