Chapter 381: Come To An End
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
With a soft whistle, Fang Xingjian pressed on instead of retreating. It was because he knew that if he were to allow his opponent to absorb the bodies of the two Gray Knights, letting him recover and then perform a series of powerful black magic...
Then Fang Xingjian would probably only be able to win if he activated the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent.
The Heaven's Volition Sword Intent required a depletion of at least 100,000 potential points. It would be equivalent to wasting his hard work on tempering his attribute for three whole days. Unless he was left with no other options, he was unwilling to do this.
Therefore, confronted with the energy tentacles which were attacking him at lightning speed, Fang Xingjian continued to attack.
The Zenith Light Sword Formation activated and sent several hundred Ether Sword Ripples sweeping outward, turning all the metallic tentacles into pieces. The Ether Sword Ripples then slashed toward the bishop's body together with demolition sword light.
The Zenith Light Sword Formation had a high temperature of 10,000 degrees celsius and a speed that was 16 times that of supersonic speed. Together with his Ether Sword Ripples, which were three times his strength, and the demolition sword light, which destroyed everything, all of them slashed onto the bishop's body concurrently.
The bishop's eyes were filled with bewilderment and astonishment.
In the next moment, majority of his body was already vaporized, and his head was annihilated by Fang Xingjian's Prodigious Demolition Sword into the most basic form of heat energy, dissipating into the air.
The three Conferred Knights, who were rid of the bishop's control, seemed to have turned back to normal, and they ran over toward Fang Xingjian in jubilation.
Fang Xingjian felt under his rib as doubt filled up his heart.
'It seemed like that energy tentacle brushed past me. But why am I fine?'
Simultaneously, he sensed that a piercing silver light was unleashed in his consciousness. The skill seed which represented the Universal Sword Dominance Lunisolar mental cultivation method once again underwent a transformation.
Turning the Terrene Shrine's base into flat land had cleared out all the fury in his heart, and as his mood lightened, his mental cultivation method also increased to level 7.
The other three Conferred Knight came to Fang Xingjian's side, and Plaits asked in disbelief,"Are you really at level 24? You must be already level 28 or 29, right?"
Old Man also said in surprise,"How on earth did you perform that sword attack from earlier? To think that you turned the entire mountain over. I've never seen such a terrifying sword attack."
Fang Xingjian did not say a word but merely shook his head and looked toward the sky with doubt in his gaze.
High up in the sky, the witch with green hair and eyes looked at Fang Xingjian, her eyes filled with greed.
"I've finally found you, the person of the agreement."
As she spoke, she chuckled and then left, flying leisurely to the other entrance of the base which was over ten kilometers away. She drifted in and saw a piece of gray flesh wriggling in. As it did, the piece of flesh continued to change its form and gradually grew hands and legs, eyes, ears, mouth, nose, and hair. Eventually, it broke into a run from its initial crawling state, becoming a little boy with black hair and eyes.
Looking at this little boy, the witch smiled and said,"As expected, you didn't die. However, this is all that's left from the flesh from another world? It's no longer enough to let you turn into an adult now?"
The kid with black hair and eyes glared at the witch and said,"Why? You want to capture me? The results of my research have all been hidden by me. It's useless for you to capture me."
"Why would I? I have no interest in violence at all." The witch shrugged and said,"i only feel that in your current situation, it's best for you to go look for the Third Prince."
"The Empire's Third Prince?" The little boy let out a cold laugh and said,"The Empire has just sent Conferred Knights to annihilate me, and you want me to go look for him? Green Robed!"
The Chaos Witch was the leader of all the Green Robed Mages.
"Haha, who do you think was the one sponsoring Terrene Shrine's research and protecting Terrene Shrine's bases for all these years while you were constantly in hiding?"
When the little boy heard this, he could not help but be taken by surprise."You're saying..."
"Shhh..." The Chaos Witch chuckled and put up a finger to her lips as a signal for him to keep it a secret.
"The insignificant ants also wish to go after the god's powers?" A hint of disdain flashed in the boy's eyes."They'll just be used to propel us on our roads to success and won't get anything out of it." He then suddenly glared at the Conferred Knight and asked,"How is it possible for that level 24 Conferred Knight to be immune to the power of the evil god?
"The person you said that you've come to see must be him, right?"
The witch with green hair and eyes laughed, and ignited in flames, turning into fragments and dissipating in the air.
'He is the key, the agreement, the final realm, the chaos that will bring the entire world to an end...'
The boy looked coldly at the disappearing silhouette. His mouth twitched, and he said,"A bunch of people who like to put up a show."
One day later, the entire ruins was sealed off by the Empire. Countless Knights and staff members went around checking for the remaining leads. However, the damage caused by Fang Xingjian's Terra Ingurgitation was far too great. Majority of the leads were already gone.
In the government's office in Great Western City, Fang Xingjian sat on a chair. His eyes looked as if his soul was somewhere distant.
An official was seated opposite him.
"So, in the end, you were unable to hold back, and you killed the Terrene Shrine's bishop?
"Mmm." Fang Xingjian nodded.
"Thank you for cooperating with our investigations."
Fang Xingjian walked out from the government building. He was still holding onto a box in his right hand. The item in the box was the reason why he had participated in the operation to wipe out the Terrene Shrine. It was the sunstone which could be used to increase the level of one's Effulgence Weapon.
The staff members had found it from the ruins of the Terrene Shrine and eventually handed it to Fang Xingjian.
However, Fang Xingjian was still thinking about the matter with the Terrene Shrine. The implications from this case were really too great. To think that there had been such a terrifying heretic base in the Great Western Region and it was located so near to the Great Western City.
They had even remained hidden for many years, killing over 10,000 innocent commoners.
Additionally, they had even developed evil black magic which could join humans and ferocious beasts together, and then channel in a tremendous amount of human consciousness, forming physical bodies and spirits which were close to being indestructible.
The Empire's upper echelon would definitely put in more effort into cracking down on the Terrene Shrine. Fang Xingjian's concern, however, was about the nature of the Terrene Shrine's Mages.
'Black magic... Mages... Terrene Shrine... diabolic energy.' Fang Xingjian once again recalled the final scene when he had been fighting with the bishop.'Why is it that he came into contact with me, but he didn't activate black magic?'
Fang Xingjian's eyes squinted a little. He could not understand why this was the case, but when he thought back on the terrible scenes in the Terrene Shrine, killing intent surged in his heart. The skill seed which represented the Universal Sword Dominance Lunisolar mental cultivation method continued to flash with a silver glow.
Robert had already walked right up to Fang Xingjian and was half a step behind him."Sir, is there anything wrong?"
"Mmm, it's nothing." Fang Xingjian then casually brought up,"Gather information related to the Terrene Shrine. If you can find another of their bases, inform me immediately."
No matter what, the Terrene Shrine's black magic research had stimulated the killing aura in Fang Xingjian's heart. He felt that if he could kill the people from the Terrene Shrine, his Universal Sword Dominance Lunisolar mental cultivation method would be able to progress even more. This would be an act of following his heart.
"How has this case been explained to the public?"
Robert bowed and continued,"Sir, the academy has already heard of the damage you've caused in the Pearl City as well as at the Terrene Shrine's base. They've sealed off the information at the first instant and announced to the public that it's due to earthquake and avalanche. They hope that you can return to the academy immediately. They wish to to immediately purchase the complete legacy on the Pantheon Monument."
Fang Xingjian said calmly,"Leave them hanging for a while."
