Chapter 149 With Great Ease
Jack stood there in a daze, unmoving. He touched his neck, unaware of when his throat had been slit open, as fresh blood spurted out.
He wanted to reach out to grab Fang Xingjian, wanted to say something, but he could only watch as the latter's back got further and further away from him, not even sparing him a glance.
With a bang, he fell to the floor. As blood flowed out, he felt himself weakening. Even with the vitality of a first transition Knight, he would probably not be able to hang on for long.
Rebecca's Knight attire was slashed into pieces. If not for the protection of the Knight attire, she would have probably become minced meat. However, even with it on, she was still covered in injuries.
She gazed at Fang Xingjian in great astonishment. She could not understand how he had managed to do this despite having suffered serious injuries. Moreover, he had even been poisoned.
"Ahhh!" Kaunitz let out a terrible cry. A wound the width of two fingers appeared on his chest as fresh blood spilled out like a water fountain, forming a crimson pool at his feet.
His human and dragon blood mobilized, the muscles on his chest continued to wriggle, trying hard to heal bit by bit. At the same time, countless black-colored scales had appeared on his skin, making him look like a black armored devil.
Kaunitz looked at Fang Xingjian with a malevolent expression and bellowed furiously, "Why? Why are you so stubborn? Why do you refuse to accept the First Prince?"
Fang Xingjian indifferently replied, "A person like you will never understand."
In the next moment, he took another step towards Kaunitz. His Supreme Mistwind Sword transformed into lightning, and once again struck at Kaunitz.
Up to a hundred sword Qis bombarded Kaunitz's body, but were unable to slash through the black-colored scale armor on Kaunitz's body.
Kaunitz, on the other hand, had increased his focus to 120%. Amidst the sword Qis, he could finally feel three streams of formless sharp blades seemingly cutting through the air. However, it was already too late; the three foot sword light, which travelled at three times that of supersonic speed, was really too fast. Unable to react in time, Kaunitz suddenly felt immense pain in his head, chest and stomach. A sound like cutting through metal rang out and he was once again sent flying.
There were still twenty-eight seconds of Boundaries Negation left.
Kaunitz fell to the ground, screaming in agony. The Inferno Indestructible Physique's scale armor rolled up, revealing sections of bones as fresh blood continued to splash out.
"B*stard! Stop it!"
Seeing this scene, Rebecca bellowed. Her silver hair flew about maniacally, and as she pointed her ten fingers. Thunder and fire sword Qis shot out crazily, heading towards Fang Xingjian as if they came from a machine gun.
Such dense sword Qis would be able to turn a truck into a sieve, but Fang Xingjian merely swept around with his sole sword, creating hundreds of strong gales in the air and extinguishing Rebecca's thunder and fire sword Qis.
Rebecca looked at this scene in disbelief. More importantly, she had not even managed to see her opponent's moves; they were just too fast.
Fang Xingjian continued to walk towards the now fallen Kaunitz. Rebecca relentlessly fired out thunder and fire sword Qis, but once they entered within a ten-meter radius from Fang Xingjian, they were simply extinguished.
Fang Xingjian charged forward once again, slashing at Kaunitz's neck. Sparks flew as fresh blood gushed out.. Kaunitz was once again sent flying, but he was only injured, not dead.
The Inferno Indestructible Physique's armor was too tough, so his three foot sword light had only been able to sink three inches in.
Twenty-five seconds of Boundaries Negation left.
Cynthia stood up as well. Looking at her right arm covered in blood, her face depicted her immense killing intent. "You're good. If you want to get there, you need to get through me first."
As she spoke, she concurrently charged forth and went to stand in front of Kaunitz. Pushing out her two palms, ether particles moved about crazily, slowly forming hyperfrequency heat currents. It was Cynthia's well-known Killing technique - Formless Fire.
Able to boil up to hundreds of meters away from her in an instant with hyperfrequency waves, she could even boil the blood in a person's body.
But without even letting her perform her technique or say anything more, Fang Xingjian revealed a cold smile, and with a flash, appeared behind Cynthia.
A hint of light streaked past Cynthia's neck. It was the gleam created when sword light clashed with the Reduced Force Field.
In the next moment, her head was was sent soaring all the way, until it dropped to the ground. It was still staring with furious eyes, wearing an expression of disbelief.
With his Boundaries Negation activated and three foot sword light moving about at ease, Fang Xingjian slashed at where her neck was the weakest; it was not something Cynthia's Reduced Force Field could fend off.
However, with this assault, Fang Xingjian started to feel a bit dizzy. The intense activity had caused the poison to start acting up, flowing through his body once again.
But he did not stop there. He did not even cast a glance towards the corpse which was still standing, instead lifting his head and slashing once again at Kaunitz.
"Ahhh!" Cynthia's husband Zakov let out a loud bellow of great grief and indignation, his eyes turning blood-shot. With great fury, he held onto his great saber, leapt up into the air and struck at Fang Xingjian's back.
Fang Xingjian did not move his body, he simply signalled his thoughts to move his sword. The sword light swept out, but Zakov blocked it with a crisp ring.
"Oh?" Only then did Fang Xingjian turn to take a look. While he turned, he continued to unceasingly thrust sword light, sending streams of cone-shaped air currents towards Zakov.
However, it was as if Zakov had known about this beforehand. Right before Fang Xingjian attacked, he positioned his saber horizontally in front of him, and with three crisp dang dang dang sounds, he fell to the ground. However, he had managed to fend off the onslaught.
Even so, just as he landed, another sword Qi pierced his back. He then slashed out with his saber, just as before, blocking off this sword Qi.
Fang Xingjian frowned and lifted his finger slightly. Another three streams of sword Qis once again cut towards Zakov.
Nonetheless, this was still useless. No matter how Fang Xingjian attacked, Zakov was able to dodge and block before he even started. This was a powerful Killing technique that had taken thirty years of tough training to master - Will Before Intention. It allowed him to fend off and retaliate against an opponent's moves by predicting them.
It could be said that his close combat battle prowess was far greater than his wife's. If there were any flaws in his opponent's moves, it would be unlikely for his opponent to defeat him.
But the next moment, Zakov fell into a daze. Taking advantage of the opportunity, Fang Xingjian's right hand turned into a blur. It was because his speed was truly too fast, and the series of afterimages seemed just like a black shadow.
Up to a hundred sword shadows surrounded Zakov, not leaving the slightest opening, and slashed down at a speed three times that of supersonic speed.
Without any flaws, an attack using pure, absolute strength and agility, rending Zakov unable to avoid it. That was why he fell into a daze when he had previously predicted this move.
In that moment, it was as if the air was ground into dust. With up to a hundred sword Qis slashing down at three times that of supersonic speed, countless loud explosions rang out, as if innumerable bombs had blown up at the same time. Waves noticeable with the naked eye rippled outwards, everyone's faces reflecting a hint of pain, as if someone was stirring their brains with a stick.
When all the smoke scattered, what was left was just a lump of flesh. Zakov was not even left with a complete corpse.
Fang Xingjian's potential continued to deplete at 1000 points per second. Having his time wasted by Zakov and Cynthia, his Boundaries Negation had been reduced to a mere fifteen seconds now.
Slashing over a hundred times in one breath, even Fang Xingjian was starting to feel weak. He began to feel groggy, his vision turning increasingly unfocused, and Kaunitz who was a distance away was even looking like a lump of blurry figures. After swaying a little, he almost fell down.
What was worse was that as he battled, circulating his Waves and mental cultivation method non-stop, his blood flow accelerated. His brain was depleting energy at a very quick rate, and waves of blood were sent to compensate continuously. This meant that the poison continuously travelled to his brain.
'This cannot do. I need to stop for a while.'
Feeling as if he would lose his consciousness an any moment, Fang Xingjian stopped his Boundaries Negation and started to circulate his vital energy and blood, trying to relieve his body from the poison with his Internal Healing and Internal Training.
'After I relieve myself from the poison, I still have fifteen seconds. It should be enough.'
Yet, throughout the whole process, he continued to move forward. It was because the battle was still in progress. He was like a teetering patient, taking step after step towards Kaunitz.
Rebecca was still crazily firing out streams of thunder and fire sword Qis, but it was as if they met formless barriers. Fang Xingjian only had to use a slash at supersonic speed to scatter all of them.
"Fang Xingjian, stop!" Rebecca shouted. "Are you crazy?! Do you want to go against the whole Tresia Clan? Do you want to become the First Prince's sworn enemy?"
Kaunitz continued to scream out in pain, one hand on the wound on his chest. He looked furiously towards Fang Xingjian who was slowly moving towards him and shouted, "Fang Xingjian, have you gone mad?
"You have not cleaned up the poison blood in your body. If you continue to battle, allowing the poison to flow and to attack your brain and your heart, you will die! Do you really want to die?!"
Fang Xingjian did not pay him any heed, but just kept walking towards him, step by step. Although he was a bit unstable, he was strangely determined.
Kaunitz had also calmed down. The wound on his chest had already closed up. With a slight movement, he activated his skill, the Six Armed Asura. Four extremely thick giant arms covered in black scales grew out from his shoulders and back.
Endless fury and envy turned into flames in his heart, making his face appear extremely twisted.
"Fang Xingjian, why?! Why are you so stubborn?!
"The First Prince is the person at the pinnacle of the mortal world, the future hope of the whole world... Why do you refuse to yield to him?
"Why are you so foolish?!"
As he spoke, his six arms formed sword fingers, pointing in Fang Xingjian's direction.
Six streams of Divine Flames of the Earth's Core shot out. These Divine Flames of the Earth's Core were a type of high temperature beams which would travel at the speed of light once shot. Everywhere they passed through would be burnt down by a high temperature of a thousand degrees.
It was fortunate that Fang Xingjian had started to dodge just as Kaunitz lifted his hands. However, the Divine Flames of the Earth's Core travelled at the speed of light and they were too fast. Despite the fact that he had started to dodge before his opponent had sent them out, he only managed to avoid being hit at the critical spots.They pierced holes through his shoulder and lower thigh, the smell of burnt meat wafting out from them.
However, Fang Xingjian only let out a grunt. He had activated the last fifteen seconds of his Boundaries Negation, pulling out a strong stream of white air current, and dashed towards Kaunitz.
The six streams of Divine Flames of the Earth's Core were like six pillars of light, surrounding Kaunitz. They propelled him a hundred meters away, and then with the movement of his finger, the flames swept outwards.
However, the speed of such sweeping motions was not as swift as when they were being shot out. It was really too slow for Fang Xingjian, who had his Boundaries Negation. He once again created a burst with his right hand, gathering all the viscous, poisoned blood; uncontrollably, a low grunt to escape from his mouth.
At that moment, the Silver Dragon slashed up to a hundred times, crazily pummeling against Kaunitz's body like a drill, and uncovering his scaled armor. Flesh and blood splattered everywhere, making him wail with terrified cries as he fell.
Looking at Kaunitz, who was shrieking crazily, Fang Xingjian uttered coldly, "Don't worry. In two years at most, I'll definitely chop off the First Prince's head and send him to accompany you."
At that moment, there were still twelve seconds left of Boundaries Negation.
'There's still time. I'll pry off your tortoise shell, then kill you.'
