Chapter 204 Color
As Fang Xingjian was being suppressed and having his body restrained by the atmosphere, he suddenly stopped in his tracks. What seemed like snapping sounds resounded in the air, as if the air itself had snapped in two like some kind of steel product.
Seeing Fang Xingjian stopping in his tracks, David grinned and thought to himself, 'Hmph, no matter how fast your speed is, the atmosphere between space areas is ever existing. With my One Man Army, the aura impact dealt to your mind takes but an instant to attack. Are you able to dodge it?'
Thinking this, David clenched his palms fiercely, and explosive sounds rang out. The atmospheric pressure on Fang Xingjian felt even heavier, and he felt as if each inch of his skin was being pushed down on by a mountain.
David coldly said, "Fang Xingjian, if you surrender now, I'll let you go. Otherwise, don't blame me for being vicious."
Hearing that, Fang Xingjian lifted his head to look at David, revealing a disdainful smile.
"I'm coming over. If you can stop me, try it."
The next moment, Ether Sword Ripples abruptly shot out, slashing the surrounding . At the same time, Boundaries Negation was also activated, and with a single step forward he was already before David.
David reacted very quickly. Although he did not understand how Fang Xingjian could have escaped his suppression, the moment when Fang Xingjian disappeared he automatically sent out both his fists, causing explosions in the air. The endless atmospheric pressure was like a thousand gates, pressing down shut right before his eyes.
This move, Atmospheric Door, provided an extremely sturdy defence and David had even used this to fend off a ballista attack before.
However, almost at the same moment he had released the Atmospheric Door, Fang Xingjian's fingers, like ghosts, directly tore through space and pierced through the weakest spot on the door, aiming for David's head.
With the enhancement obtained through the Unparalleled Sword Intent, Fang Xingjian could even slash through an Inferior Divine Weapon with his bare hands now, let alone David's Atmospheric Door.
David shouted in surprise and leaned his head backward. Putting his palms together, countless atmospheric currents pressed down on his body, creating an extremely tight shield over it and protecting it.
However, although the defensive powers of this Atmospheric Armor were amazing, they were also restricting David's movements. This was why although David was feeling very confident when he used this move, he also knew that there was no way he could defeat Fang Xingjian in this state.
"This Fang Xingjian is truly powerful. Could it be that he has really attained Heaven's Perception? If that's the case, then his vision would be even clearer than us who see things with our naked eyes. Furthermore, his sword technique is also extremely elusive. How on earth did he train?"
However, David was extremely confident in his Atmospheric Armor. He watched as Fang Xingjian pushed his fingers toward him again and again, only to have his speed reduced more and more once he was within three inches of David's body, and then to be pushed out by the high density air pressure.
Seeing this, David smiled even more confidently.
"Fang Xingjian, it's useless. Even a Knight using a level 9 Inferior Divine Weapon would find it impossible to slash through my Atmospheric Armor. It's said to be the strongest defenses at the Knight level. Do you understand? This is the power of the atmosphere. This is the tremendous power of the world. Unless you've already stepped into second transition, it's impossible for you as a human to fight against the world's powers."
In the second transition, other than sensing information from ether particles, one could also borrow the powers from them. The power contained within the ether particles were limitless, and it represented the world's powers. However, Killing techniques which tapped into the energy of the ether particles were all cultivated by Conferred Knights, and were mostly gathered in Regional Academies. This was why Fang Xingjian had not learnt any of them before.
However, he had yet to give up. He lifted his hand, and streams of light appeared. He had activated the High Frequency Effulgence Weapon - Silver Fox. A longsword formed from silver-colored fog appeared in his hands.
"Oh? He already has an Effulgence Weapon at level 19, before even getting to the second transition?"
"So what if he has an Effulgence Weapon? David's Atmospheric Armor has once stood up against the combined attacks of twelve Knights. It's known to be indestructible amongst those below second transition."
"It's a pity, a pity. If Fang Xingjian had an Inferior Divine Weapon, he'd still have a chance. But it's impossible for him to slash through the Atmospheric Armor with his bare hands."
Divine level expert's grand disciple Hoult shook his head and unconsciously stroked the longsword at his waist, saying, "This Atmospheric Armor is quite well-known. Even for me it could prove difficult if I wanted to break through it with my bare hands.
"This Killing technique One Man Army is truly magnificent. It already has a feeling resembling the way a second transition Conferred Knight taps into the ether particles' energy."
Rota frowned, suddenly turning to look at Hamil and said, "Give him the Superior Divine Weapon."
"What?" Hamil was stunned, and did not manage to react. It was the Superior Divine Weapon Huang Lin had requested Governor Devitt to forge. Thanks to Edger, it was now on loan to Hamil.
When Hamil heard Rota's words, he frowned with obvious reluctance.
Governor Devitt and his wife also shook their heads, obviously thinking that it was impossible for Fang Xingjian to break through the shield.
Just when everyone was thinking that it would be impossible for Fang Xingjian to break through the Atmospheric Armor, the person in question made his move. Right before everyone's eyes, the fog-like High Frequency Effulgence Weapon, Silver Fox, softly thrust out and landed directly on the Atmospheric Armor.
The high frequency tremors, supported by the Unparalleled Sword Intent, sent extremely terrifyingly sharp auras into the air, tearing through layers of atmosphere. And then, under David's shocked gaze, it slashed through his Atmospheric Armor and tapped on David's body.
Almost at the same moment when the Atmospheric Armor broke, the tremendous changes in air pressure caused a massive amount of air explosions to scatter outward in all directions.
Amidst the waves of explosive air, David took the opportunity to retreat tens of meters. Only then did he look at Fang Xingjian, badly shaken. In the next moment, he laughed out loud, "No one has ever broke through my Atmospheric Armor before. This is why no one knows that after it's been broken, it still isn't the end. There's also a series of explosions, so the repelling force of the air currents will backlash against my opponent."
He then put his palms together again, reactivating his Atmospheric Armor and firmly protecting himself.
"So how is it, Fang Xingjian? Do you still want to waste time attacking?"
Just then, Fang Xingjian's voice came ringing out from the smoke and dust. "I can easily slash through something like the Atmospheric Armor. I can easily slash through those explosive air currents as well."
"So what?" David said with great confidence. "As long as you slash through my Atmospheric Armor, you'll be attacked by the impact of the waves. When you're done going through them, I will have already activated my Atmospheric Armor once again. There's no way that you can break through my defence."
When all the smoke and dust had cleared up, Fang Xingjian threw him a cold glare and turned to walk away. He turned to the green-haired Gable and asked, "That should be enough, right? This should be sufficient to prove that I've attained Heaven's Perception."
Just as David was feeling that something was odd, laughter broke out in the hall. A few aristocratic ladies pointed to David, laughing so hard that they could not keep their backs straight.
David was stunned for a moment. Then, he suddenly reacted and looked at himself. He saw that his pants had been torn to shreds, revealing his underwear.
He then felt his head, and found that it was covered in blood. Fang Xingjian had already written four words on his head, with his Ether Sword Ripples.
The words 'Yellow Underwear'.
David's underwear was yellow in color.
The moment Fang Xingjian had slashed through the Atmospheric Armor, he had sent ten streams of Ether Sword Ripples to, tear up David's clothes and to carve the words on his forehead.
It was impossible for one to discern colors by listening to the sound of wind. Being able to discern colors with one's eyes closed was something only attainable through Heaven's Perception.
It was also impossible for David to reveal the color of his underwear only to help Fang Xingjian. This had removed all possibilities of cheating.
Almost the same time when David felt these changes, a surge of vital energy and blood gushed up to his head.
'Burning shame.' These words kept appearing in David's mind, as if he was going to die of shame and humiliation in that very moment. He dashed out of the place, not daring to stay and allow other people to see how he looked.
The words carved on his head were a humiliation which he would remember forever.
When he turned to look at Fang Xingjian, his mind was brimming with killing intent. It was obvious that he now considered Fang Xingjian his lifelong enemy.
