Hearing the Black Wings Demon's question, everyone turned their gazes toward Fang Xingjian.
Countless gazes gathered onto one spot, exuding an almost palpable pressure.
They held hope, desperation, anticipation, sneers... Everyone was waiting for Fang Xingjian's reply.
Everyone knew that in such a situation, even for Fang Xingjian it would be impossible for him to defeat the three great experts hovering in the air. However, recalling Fang Xingjian's earlier performance, deep in their hearts, they were expecting something.
Just then, Fang Xingjian took a deep breath, opened his eyes, and stood firm in his resolve.
With a swoosh , Fang Xingjian's left hand penetrated the area near his chest and abdomen, grabbed onto the longest rib bone he had, and drew it out slowly.
Holding a White Bone Longsword in his right hand and a White Bone Short Short Sword in his left, pressuring sword intent burst from all of Fang Xingjian's body.
He tightened his grip on the White Bone Longsword, looked at the Black Wings Demon who was in front of him, then lifted his head to look at the three experts in the sky. He said coldly, "Heng Tianxiao. Today, I'll kill your lackey first, then kill the three of you one by one.
"If you can stop me, try."
With these words, he suddenly moved in a flash and the two swords in his hands spread a myriad of sword shadows as he lunged toward the Black Wings Demon.
Surrounded by the three experts and ambushed by he Ten Directional Hell's Flag, everyone thought that Fang Xingjian would surrender. But, not only did he not surrender, he even attacked first, wanting to start off with a kill.
The moment Fang Xingjian attacked, a violent and furious burst of martial will swept across the place and an infuriated voice exploded in everyone's minds.
"How dare you!"
With a furious bellow made through the martial will, the one-eyed old man dashed forward. The forces of all his 1,440 specialty seeds were unleashed and boundless energy gushed through his body. It was as if countless ancient dragons were currently surging through his body.
In that instant, his physical strength reached an extreme amongst those below the Divine level.
When one achieved perfection in the body's toughness, it increased the one's defense. When one achieved perfection in specialty seeds, it increased the various attributes of the physical body. When one achieved perfection in physical particles, it increased the maximum amount of explosive force one could unleash. It would increase the prowess of the various elements that were unleashed through Killing techniques such as flames, lightning, light, and darkness.
Right now, the one-eyed old man had already achieved perfection in attaining all of his 1,440 specialty seeds. The physical attributes he could unleash now were completely above Fang Xingjian's.
The old man cut through the atmosphere, arriving first despite being the second to take action. Before Fang Xingjian's duo of swords pierced into the Black Wings Demon, the old man punched toward Fang Xingjian's back.
Before the fist's force arrived, a terrifying power took over, smashing through the layers of air. At the same time, it encompassed everything in a state as if all things in the world would be annihilated and gods and demons would shed tears of blood. It made Fang Xingjian feel a sensation of stuffiness in his chest.
When the punch was unleashed and violent powers surged, it was encompassed with a state as if all things in the world would be annihilated and gods and demons would shed tears of blood. It created an aura of harboring no hesitation, as if it would not spare even gods and buddhas, should they come before him. This was the one-eyed old man's original Killing technique-Annihilation Fist.
Concurrently, when faced with a moment of life or death, the Black Wings Demon also let out a weird cry and unleashed his full powers. He was not a match for Fang Xingjian.
However, his speed was far, far too slow when compared with the one-eyed old man and Fang Xingjian. His muscles, vital energy and blood had barely started circulating when the one-eyed old man's punch had already smashed down on Fang Xingjian's back.
What the one-eyed old man did not consider was that Fang Xingjian would actually take his punch head-on without blocking or shunning it.
Rumbling sounds broke out within Fang Xingjian's body. The old man had achieved perfection in specialty seeds and his physical strength, which was top notch amongst those below the Divine level, had smashed down on Fang Xingjian's back without any hesitation. Even though the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor had reduced some of the impact, even with his body's toughness which was comparable to a level 29 Divine Weapon, Fang Xingjian, who had achieved perfection in his body's toughness, could still feel a tremendous amount of pain coming from his organs. It felt as if his body was going to shatter.
It was also by receiving the one-eyed old man's punch head-on that Fang Xingjian got a hold of the opportunity to attack the Black Wings Demon.
The one-eyed old man's power smashed down on his body, meaning that it had increased the speed at which he was charging at even further. With their powers combined, Fang Xingjian shot out toward the Black Wings Demon like a meteor. The Black Wings Demon could not react in time to counter when Fang Xingjian's two White Bone Swords had already slashed his head and chest respectively.
Boom boom! Two sounds of explosions rang out and, at the high speed assault, the Black Wings Demon's head exploded from the sword attack and his chest was also stirred into a lump of paste. He was well and truly dead.
Fang Xingjian's legs left behind two deep trenches of over 100 meters in length before he came to a stop. He casually spit out the blood in his mouth, turned his head, and saw that the one-eyed old man was looking at him, infuriated. "Fang Xingjian, you're as stubborn as a mule." The old man had not expected that Fang Xingjian would insist on killing the Black Wings Demon right before him.
"However, in order to kill him, you had to forcibly taken a punch from me. All of your internal organs must be damaged, right? In such a situation, how many more punches can you take from me?"
Fang Xingjian wiped off the blood from the corner of his lips and said, "Although you've achieved perfection in specialty seeds and your physical strength is above mine, your body's toughness is below mine. Right now, your palm must still be regenerating, right?" At the same time, the internal organs in Fang Xingjian's body were wriggling and healing incessantly.
The one-eyed old man was slightly stunned. When his fist had hit Fang Xingjian earlier, although he had managed to injure Fang Xingjian, his body's toughness could not compare to Fang Xingjian's and his arm had suffered from fractures and injuries. He had only just managed to regenerate his arm.
At the next moment, Fang Xingjian swung the longsword in his hand and pointed toward the Darkness Demon Lord who was in the air.
"I'll kill you next."
Having said that, with a flash, Fang Xingjian stomped on the air, charging with a series of thunderous sounds toward the hovering Darkness Demon Lord.
Seeing how Fang Xingjian had kept to his word and had made his first kill, exploding the Black Wings Demon's head in the blink of an eye, and how now he was charging toward himself, the Darkness Demon Lord's countenance turned extremely grim. Even more so when he felt the gushing killing intent coming from Fang Xingjian, which made him feel as if he was suffocating.
With a loud bellow, the Ten Directional Hell's Flag blocked in front of him and the army of vengeful spirits gathered, turning into countless streams of willpower impacts, shooting out in all directions.
On the ground, countless Knights who were struck by the aftermath of this cried in agony and fainted.
With a loud thud, Fang Xingjian was stopped in midair as his longsword clashed against the one-eyed old man's fist.
No one knew when, but the one-eyed old man had already put on a set of golden dragon-shaped gloves.
Amidst the impact of the martial willpower, the one-eyed old man furiously said, "Fang Xingjian, do you think that you're the only one with a level 29 Divine Weapon?"
As they spoke, they were already engaged in an intense battle in midair. Boom boom boom boom! Sounds of air explosions continued to ring out incessantly. Each time the fists and swords came into contact, a screech would ring out through the air and shock waves were dispersed.
The fist technique of the one-eyed old man was extremely terrifying, and he had a physical strength which far surpassed Fang Xingjian's.
However, Fang Xingjian had achieved perfection in his body's toughness and the pair of long and short swords in his hands were constantly swinging out in a graceful trajectory, constantly attacking the opponent's crucial points, which required the latter to act in defense. Although the one-eyed old man was equipped with violent power, he was constantly on the defense and as swoosh swoosh swoosh sounds rang out, many slash wounds started appearing on his body.
The one-eyed old man had only fended off Fang Xingjian for a mere three seconds when a lump of blood spurted out from his chest and with an agonizing cry, he flew several kilometers backward. Just as he was about to cut through the atmosphere again and dash back to Fang Xingjian, the latter had already slashed at the Darkness Demon Lord's head from above, like a death god dealing judgement.
