Chapter 220 Contention for the Top Tier (Part VI)
How fast could a human be?
The public buses modern people took had a speed of about ten meters per second.
In a Ferrari, the highest speed that could be reached was 101 meters per second.
A passenger plane could maintain a speed of 277 meters per second.
Additionally, the world's fastest combat aircraft could reach about 935 meters per second. They could arrive at any place on Earth within four hours.
What else could travel faster?
Fang Xingjian's highest speed at ten times that of supersonic was about 3400 meters per second.
When the Colossal Armed Ape entered Fang Xingjian's ten-meter radius, Fang Xingjian's Heaven's Perception transmitted this information into his brain at the first instance.
About seven one-thousandths of a second later, the Colossal Armed Ape's fist would land on Fang Xingjian's head.
Therefore in the first one-thousandth of a second, Fang Xingjian received this news and reacted accordingly.
In the second one-thousandth of a second, Fang Xingjian activated Boundaries Negation as he "watched" the Colossal Armed Ape inch closer and closer toward him.
He could even "see" the strips of flesh on the Colossal Armed Ape. Fang Xingjian could also "see" the lumps of plasma, as well as 122 spots of light flashing on its body.
Those were the 122 weak points on its body. Fang Xingjian could sense that as long as he pierced the Styx into them, he would be able to cut it up into pieces.
His level 1 Unparalleled Sword Intent could even slice through the Empire's Divine Weapon directly, let alone the muscles and bones of the Colossal Armed Ape which was comparable to an Empire's Divine Weapon.
Therefore, in the following two one-thousandths of a second, Fang Xingjian's Silver Fox Styx was gradually covered with a layer of silvery fog. He had activated his High Frequency Effulgence Weapon, Silver Fox.
Then in the next one-thousandth of a second, Fang Xingjian's arm started to move with great trouble. The Styx sliced through the atmosphere, creating a series of afterimages as it tapped on the spots of light one by one.
The 122 swords appeared and then disappeared in a single one-thousandth of a second. The series of flashing sword sparks were reflected in the gazes of Kirst's City Lord, Lilia, and Ferdinand.
Fang Xingjian then took one small step forward and dodged the Colossal Armed Ape.
The sound explosions, air currents, sparks and sword lights caused one's vision to suddenly be in a mess.
Ordinary audiences could only see the a flash of light. To them, Fang Xingjian was still standing in the same spot, while the Colossal Armed Ape had passed by him and smashed strongly into the ground.
With a desperate howl of fury, more than one hundred blood arrows shot out from all over from his body. Accompanied with this desperate howl, the Colossal Armed Ape split up into pieces, turning in a pile of minced meat.
Under everyone's astonished gazes, a small foot, the size of half of one of the Colossal Armed Ape's eyeballs, stepped onto the Colossal Armed Ape's head which had flown off.
Fang Xingjian looked curiously at the Colossal Armed Ape's wide-open eyes and its mouth which continued to remain in the state of when it had been letting out its last roar.
Suddenly, he lifted up his hand and caused sword light to sweep by, cutting open the Colossal Armed Ape's parietal bones.
He suddenly felt like tasting the ape's brain. It was like how he had suddenly realized that delicacies could bring him a little feeling of happiness. Such happy feelings, to Fang Xingjian who had not felt much happiness for the past one and a half years, were like a refreshing spring of water in a desert.
It made him want to try various delicacies.
Therefore, just like how he used to kill when he felt like it, with his current urge to eat the ape's brain, Fang Xingjian just cut up the Colossal Armed Ape's parietal bones and poked one finger into its head.
It felt a little bit like beancurd.
Fang Xingjian mixed it up a little bit and then licked his finger.
'This taste... is really intriguing...'
Just as Fang Xingjian killed the Colossal Armed Ape in a single move, the surrounding ferocious beasts had all stopped in their tracks. When they saw Fang Xingjian start to eat the ape's brain, some ferocious beasts started to retreat slowly.
The remaining three level 20 ferocious beasts watched as Fang Xingjian licked the ape's brain, then with a point of his finger, he roasted the ape's brain with the high temperature from the Ether Sword Ripples. They all turned to escape in all directions.
All the ferocious beasts started to retreat.
However, with one hand roasting the ape's brain, Fang Xingjian's free hand tapped lightly and released over ten streams of sword Qis, slashing off the hind feet of over ten ferocious beasts and preventing them from escaping.
Naturally, he would not make the mistake of not being able to kill any ferocious beast in each ten minute interval.
When Governor Devitt saw Fang Xingjian start to roast the ape's brain, his stomach suddenly did not feel so good.
It was worse for the audience on the platform. It could not be said for the whole the Miracle World, but at least, in the Empire, no one ate animal brains. Especially when the Colossal Armed Ape looked so similar to humans, when Fang Xingjian was eating the ape's brain, it was as if they were looking at someone eating a human brain.
Countless aristocrats and students all turned pale from fright and started puking.
Ferdinand's face also turned pale as he touched his head unconsciously and said, "Hey, was Fang Xingjian's taste always so intense?"
Kirst's City Lord also frowned slightly. Eating brains was too disgusting an act. Moreover, he had even done it in the midst of a battle and had even scared off the other ferocious beasts with this act.
However, Lilia merely stared in Fang Xingjian's direction and a trickle of transparent liquid flowed down from the corner of her lips. She suddenly asked, "Are brains tasty?"
Kirst's City Lord's countenance turned grim as he quickly said, "That's something savages do. Lili, don't try it."
Even though this was a disgusting act, such disgusting acts were all built on absolute power. He had killed a level 21 ferocious beast with a single slash and then cut up its parietal bones with another so that he could eat the ape's brain.
To everyone else, Fang Xingjian was now not only strong but also terrifying.
The face of Tresia's Xiu Yi also turned pale as he felt both disgust and terror. Next to him, Zhou Yong trembled, "Elder Martial Brother, they have been unable to locate Kaunitz's corpse all this time. We've been hoping that there's a tiniest bit of hope that he has not died, but seeing how things are, could it be... could it be...
"Shut up!" Xiu Yi immediately snapped at Zhou Yong, then said, "Don't talk about the impossible." However, one could tell from the sweat on the back of Xiu Yi's head that he was truly afraid.
In this moment, after being shocked by Fang Xingjian, Xiu Yi had a feeling that he would be better off not be going against Fang Xingjian in the future. Otherwise, he may be...
With the ferocious beasts surrounding Fang Xingjian dispersed, the battle in the maze was restarted.
However, during the previous period, when all the ferocious beasts had been concentrated around Fang Xingjian, he had actually killed over two thirds of all the beasts in the maze. This left many people closer to the borders with no beasts to kill.
Additionally, this also resulted in many people being disqualified in the following ten minutes.
Rota, who had persisted in killing, Manny, who had kept aside crippled ferocious beasts, Hoult, who could control the movement of the Crimson Fire freely, as well as Anderson, who had spent quite a lot of effort before killing a level 20 ferocious beast-all of them were not disqualified.
However, there were more people like Hamil who had dodged the waves of ferocious beasts and thus ended up with none to kill. These people could only end up being disqualified.
Of course, as the person who had planned all these, David clearly knew that all the ferocious beasts would leave at a very fast rate. Therefore, he had left a few level 4 and 5 ferocious beasts close to him so that he could kill them in turns.
With this, as the number of ferocious beasts continued to decline, more and more people got disqualified for not being able to kill any ferocious beasts after ten minutes.
Of course, there were also over ten unlucky chaps who had simply given up because they came across the remaining three level 20 ferocious beasts.
Finally, because of Fang Xingjian's massacre, the battle in the maze ended much faster than it had been expected. When there were only fifty people left in the maze, Governor Devitt announced the end of the competition.
