Chapter 106 Suppression, One by One
Hearing Fang Xingjian's words, everyone's countenances turned grim, waves of killing intent surging from them and locking onto Fang Xingjian.
Class 248's leader Hamil wore an unfathomable smile, calmly staring at Fang Xingjian as if he were looking at a mischievous younger brother.
The red-browed burly man who had already been displeased with Fang Xingjian to begin with was the first person to stand up, bellowing furiously, "Fang Xingjian, do you know what place this is?! Has your brain been damaged?"
"Looking for a beating."
Fang Xingjian's voice spread to everyone's ears. The next moment, strong gales surged, and Fang Xingjian pierced through the air like a flash of lightning, appearing before the red-browed burly man in but a moment.
The burly man's mouth was still agape, saliva splattering from his words. Fang Xingjian gently slapped with his palm, and then returned back to his original spot at the speed of lightning.
His actions had been as fast as lightning, and he had done so in less time than it would take one to blink. The red-browed burly man had been unable to react in the least. He had only felt a tremendous energy coming at him, and his head uncontrollably twisting to the side. The next thing he felt was a burning pain on his cheek.
He felt as if half his face had turned all numb.
But the next moment, an endless surge of fury came up. Blood vessels covered his eyeballs, and with a wave of his hand, an enormous hammer came to him, brought by his Reduced Force Field.
Pointing the hammer at Fang Xingjian, he revealed a brutal smile. "Draw your sword. Today, you die."
Fang Xingjian coldly replied, "You're not fit to receive an attack from my sword."
Now, everyone in Class 248 was standing, looking at Fang Xingjian as if they were looking at a lunatic, at a dead man.
Hearing Fang Xingjian's words, the red-browed burly man laughed like a maniac and said, "Then you're just courting death." With that, mouth agape, he gradually started glowing red. First it was his eyebrows, then his mouth, eyes, nose and ears, all glowing like a scarlet-red fire. He seemed to be burning up like a giant made of flames.
With a thump of his feet, he made streams of blazes which darted out in all directions, as if they would turn the whole manor into ashes at the next moment.
This Killing technique, Purgatory Flames, allowed the red-browed burly man's body to exude hundreds or even thousands of high temperature flames. Just by going near those the opponent would be burnt and turned into a dried up corpse, let alone those who attempted to touch him! This was the reason why he dared to pick a fight with Fang Xingjian.
But just as the streams of flames darted out from his body, Fang Xingjian moved.
And with that movement, it was as if time had slowed down in the whole world.
Actually, it was not that time had slowed down, but rather that Fang Xingjian's speed had reached extreme limits in that moment. Therefore, in his eyes, it was as if the whole world had slowed down.
Being confined for such a long period of time had not caused Fang Xingjian to regress, but rather, because his level of sword cultivation had improved, his attributes had been further tempered, and his Waves had been brought to greater heights, and because his abilities had once again improved in leaps and bounds.
The flames moved with slight flickers. There were people who had just started to blink, but their eyelids were moving micrometer by micrometer, as if they would never be able to close.
During this phase of extreme speed, Fang Xingjian had already dashed up before the red-browed burly man.
The other party still kept a savage expression, head covered in flames. And only now did the air current waves caused by Fang Xingjian's dash hurl out in all directions, starting from the point where he had passed by earlier. Their viscosity was like the surges of sea waves, yet unable to collide against any obstacles.
At the next moment, Fang Xingjian gradually stretched out two fingers, gently pressing on the red-browed burly man's eyelids, and then with a finger, tapped on the burly man's throat, chest, and stomach.
Fang Xingjian then left the phase of extreme speed, and time once again turned back to normal.
With a boom, the air currents created by Fang Xingjian's body hurled out in all directions. Countless glasses were shattered to dust. The red-browed burly man yelled out a tremendous roar, his voice filled with extreme agony. He only felt that his eyes were in great pain, his throat was sore, his chest was stuffy, and his stomach was in so much pain that it felt as if his intestines had been torn. Grabbing his eyes, he started screaming with terrifying cries and dropped to his knees.
Amongst those who had witnessed this scene, there were those who immediately wanted to take action against Fang Xingjian. They activated their Reduced Force Fields and sent them towards him.
But with a loud explosive boom, the spot where Fang Xingjian had originally been standing was left empty, in his place only a strong swirl of air currents making explosive booming sounds under the pressure of the Reduced Force Fields.
Boom boom boom!
During the time in which Fang Xingjian had disappeared, another three softer sounds rang out. Three Knights, one after another, had received the flick of a finger on their foreheads, and immediately lost consciousness.
Everyone was staring at Fang Xingjian in disbelief, as if they were looking at some demon or monster. He was standing there, unmoving. Hylong, who had slandered Fang Xingjian earlier, had the muscles all over his body twitching violently, big drops of perspiration endlessly forming on his head.
Even Hamil, who had stayed the most calm, finally stood up. His eyes, akin to an eagle's, were fixed on Fang Xingjian.
Silence spread throughout the manor, and only Lilia, who had followed Fang Xingjian here, broke out in loud laughter. She shouted out provocatively, "Now you guys should know! My teacher is the strongest! Didn't you guys feel that you were very amazing during the competition? Why don't you show how amazing you are now?"
Fang Xingjian stood there, not giving a damn, lightly flicking his fingers. His fingers, although they appeared to be white as polished jade, and with skin as soft as a baby's, made a loud metallic ringing sound, sounding like metal objects colliding with each other.
This was because his attributes had reached a level far beyond any ordinary man's. The flesh, bones and veins throughout his body were all extremely compact, firm, as if they were made of steel.
Fang Xingjian then calmly threw a glance at Hamil and said, "You're the only one in Class 248 who uses a sword, right?"
Seeing how Fang Xingjian had fought earlier, the silver-haired Hamil's brows furrowed together. 'This Fang Xingjian is like a demon. How much time has passed? And to think that he has gotten even stronger than he was during the competition...'
If Hamil knew that just in the area of tempering attributes, Fang Xingjian's agility was already ten times that of a normal person's, and that the hard work of the past ten or so days was equivalent to that of a normal person's for three months, what would he have thought?
Moreover, even in the area of sword arts cultivation and Waves cultivation, Fang Xingjian was much faster now.
In all, his hard work for over ten days was comparable to an ordinary person's several years of cultivation.
If Hamil were to know about all these, he would probably be so astonished that his eyeballs popped out.
Even if he did not know about it now, he knew one thing, which was that if he were to fight against Fang Xingjian one-on-one, he no longer had absolute confidence in winning.
He only said, "Fang Xingjian, it is forbidden to have fights in the academy. I'll be reporting this to the Headmaster. As for the reason why you're here looking for me today, I'm not interested."
Fang Xingjian looked at his fingers and said, "Then we'll talk after we fight."
Before his words ended, his fingers formed into a sword which he pointed outwards. Countless raging gales appeared from his fingertips, and when his fingers moved, the countless raging gales turned into a stretch of sword Qis, encompassing Hamil.
Hamil had yet to react when he was covered up by the stretching sword Qis.
But having been a transitioned Knight for eight whole years, Hamil's five major attributes all exceeded 85 points. If Fang Xingjian did not activate his specialties and Killing techniques, his speed would only be a tinge faster than Hamil's.
If Fang Xingjian were to attack someone else, Hamil would not be able to stop him. But if Fang Xingjian were to attack him, he was fully able to retaliate.
Silver light exploded into the skies, and an enormous figure swelled up, smashing the sword Qis, and agitating the air currents.
"Fang Xingjian, you've asked for it. Have a taste of the prowess of my level 12 Embodiment of the Gargantuan Mammoth, and then forever live under its terror and be in awe of these powers."
