Chapter 743: Killing Intent on the Ferry (Three)
"Everyone be careful, this person's Radiant Artes are much more powerful than other Class 6 Radiant Saint Masters." A Fifth Cycle Heaven Saint Master called out to alert his companions, before he used his full strength. As the great Radiant Saint Force constantly surged into his Saint Weapon, it also began to glow greatly, before he swung it at Jian Chen.
An extremely great sword Qi shot out from the assassin's Saint Weapon. It shot forwards like a lightning bolt, and carried a sliver of pressure that originated from the world.
At the same time, another four assassins around Jian Chen swung their Saint Weapons in a similar fashion. They all shot out a powerful sword Qi at Jian Chen. Each sword Qi carried slivers of pressure that originated from the world, which locked tightly onto Jian Chen.
"You even dare to make a fool of yourself with mere Earth Tier Battle Skills!" A sliver of disdain appeared on Jian Chen's face. He slowly unfolded his hands from his chest and called out, "Radiant Saint Sword! Radiant Saint Shield!"
The surrounding Radiant Saint Force quickly began to move violently. It gathered around Jian Chen's hands at an unbelievable speed, and formed into four Radiant Saint Swords that radiated with soft light around Jian Chen's left hand, while a giant, three-meter-wide shield appeared near Jian Chen's right hand.
The scene caused the Class 6 Radiant Saint Master to stare wide-eyed once again.
"How… how is this possible? Yang Yutian actually… actually condensed four Radiant Saint Swords and a Radiant Saint Shield together in such a short time!" Master Hou was no longer able to remain calm. He stared dumbfoundedly at Jian Chen, as if he had just witnessed something impossible.
"Heavens! Brother Yang Yutian's strength is just too impressive. Not only can he simultaneously condense four Radiant Saint Swords and a Radiant Saint Shield, the speed it took him is several times greater than me. My god, just how does he do it?" Quan Youcai's mouth was agape, while the shock in his heart had already reached an unreturnable state.
"Brother Yang Yutian indeed is very powerful. With just a single hand, he's done something that completely surpassed all of us. Even the person who places first in the top ten Class 6 Radiant Saint Masters probably can't cast five Radiant Artes at the same time to such a level." The refined, middle-aged man of the Cheng family sighed emotionally in his heart. His gaze towards Jian Chen was filled with shock and disbelief.
Saer Langke stared sternly at Jian Chen. His eyes flickered with a gleam of light and he said softly, "This Yang Yutian is much stronger than I've anticipated."
"What a pity that he's unwilling to join us. Once the battle starts, we'll become enemies sooner or later." The old man from the Fire God clan said softly, also with a gleam of light flickering in his eyes.
Hearing that, a cold light flashed across Saer Langke's eyes and he said no more.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
With four ear-piercing wooshes, the four Radiant Saint Swords formed streaks of white light, that rushed towards the four Heaven Saint Masters and their Earth Tier Battle Skill sword Qi.
Bang! The four Radiant Saint Swords collided with the four sword Qis, and immediately produced a great sound of collision. As they slammed into each other, the Radiant Saint Swords and the sword Qi actually collapsed at the same time mid-air. It formed a violent energy which rippled in all directions. It caused the largest ferry of Fragrance River, the Inky Stratus, to rock from side to side, while the waves created reached several meters high. The dark sky was completely illuminated from the white light given off by the Radiant Saint Swords as they collapsed.
Jian Chen immediately used his right hand to block his chest. The Radiant Saint Shield seemed to be pulled along by an invisible force, and it followed Jian Chen's right hand and moved from Jian Chen's side to right in front of him,.As it floated there, it helped Jian Chen block the havoc-wreaking energy ripples.
At the same time, a few remaining assassins flew in from behind Jian Chen, and swiped at him with their Saint Weapons at the same time.
A cold light flashed across Jian Chen's eyes. The Radiant Saint Shield remained in front him, but he called out with a deep voice, "Radiance Burst!" As soon as he finished speaking, the Radiant Saint Force in a radius of five kilometers immediately became violent. The originally gentle, sheep-like Radiant Saint Force actually suddenly became explosive, like a vicious tiger, and it all gathering around Jian Chen in less than half a second. They became raindrop-sized balls of white light, and each carried a forceful energy, as if it was sharp sword Qi that was capable of piercing rock.
At the same time, the Radiant Saint Swords in the hands of the clan members quickly began to dim, and disappeared soon after. Afterwards, a Class 6 Radiant Saint Master cried out in astoundment, "How is this possible!? All the Radiant Saint Force in a radius of five kilometers has all disappeared!"
The Class 6 Radiant Saint Masters all revealed extremely astonished expressions, and they gazed at each other. The shock in their hearts had already reached a limit; they were not even able to speak anymore. All the Radiant Saint Force in a radius of five kilometers had been sucked clean, so that even they were unable to continue casting Radiant Artes. They had lived for so long, yet this was something they had never encountered.
"Brother Yang Yutian, you're just too impressive. You've actually sucked up all the Radiant Saint Force in the surrounding area, so that even other Radiant Saint Masters are no longer able to cast Radiant Artes. My admiration for you surges like the endless waves of the river. Brother Yang Yutian, from today onwards, you are my idol." Quan Youcai stared at Jian Chen in interest, and his face was covered with an expression of admiration.
Jian Chen's expression was cold, as if he did not realise how great of an impact he was to the Class 6 Radiant Saint Masters of the eight clans. Cold light flickered in his eyes and a sharp but undetectable killing intent appeared. He called out with a deep voice, "Radiance Burst, go!" With Jian Chen's gesture, the countless points of light formed from Radiant Saint Force surged at the assassins behind him, like a moth lunging at a fire.
The powerful strength Jian Chen had displayed before was witness by all the black-clothed assassins, so even against such an underwhelming attack, they did not dare to be complacent at all. Vast amounts of Radiant Saint Force immediately surged violently from their bodies, forming a thick barrier around them to block the attack from the points of light. At the same time, they swung their Saint Weapons constantly, and smashed the points of light.
The specks of light formed from Radiant Saint Force seemed insignificant,but each speck carried a powerful and sharp force. As soon as they collided with the Saint Weapons in the hands of the assassins, they gave out consecutive, metallic screeches.
"Argh!" An assassin gave out a mournful cry. The specks of light had broken through his protection formed from Saint Force, piercing deeply into his body. The great pain caused him to cry out "Help me!" on impulse.
Although the specks of light was blocked for the other assassins, the situation for them was not great either. The specks were just too densely packed, as numerous as rain. Many of the specks broke through the swings of their Saint Weapons, and collided with the barrier formed from Radiant Saint Force, causing it to tremble greatly.
"This fucking thing is just too powerful! My protection from Saint Force can't hold much longer. It's going to fail soon! Retreat!" An assassin with a shaking barrier cursed aloud. He gave up on this opportunity to attack Jian Chen, and quickly retreating backwards.
"Is this goddamn Radiant Saint Master Class 6 or Class 7? Why is he so overpowered? We actually can't get any closer to him." Several assassins all swore aloud. They were all forced back by Jian Chen's Radiance Burst, and were forced to give up on their attack and protect themselves.
"Do you just want to retreat like this? How can it be so easy?" A sneer formed on Jian Chen's face and with a deep voice, "Radiant Saint Sword!" As soon as he finished speaking, three white streaks of light suddenly began to flash, as they quickly flew towards the ferry and struck at one of the retreating assassins.
"He- he- he- he actually condensed a Radiant Saint Sword from over five kilometers away, and then got them to fly in!" When the Class 6 Radiant Saint Masters witnessed what was happening, they were immediately dumbfounded.
"This Yang Yutian really is so skilled to be able to do such a maneuver. He condensed a Radiant Saint Sword over five kilometers away, and then controlled the swords to fly in from so far away. Unbelieveable." The Class 6 Radiant Saint Master from the Cheng family mumbled at a slight loss.
As for Saer Langke, his expression became extremely ugly, while the complexions of the members from other clans fluctuated.
"Be careful from behind!" An assassin discovered the three Radiant Saint Swords flying in from the distance and immediately cried out to warn his companions. Meanwhile, his eyes were wide-open as he stared at the three faraway Radiant Saint Swords with disbelief. The three swords actually flew in from over five kilometers away.
Hearing the cry of warning, the other black-clothed assassins all noticed the Radiant Saint Swords flying in from behind, each was greatly surprised.
The three Radiant Saint Swords directly shot towards one person each. The swords possessed strength equivalent to the full-powered blow from a Heaven Saint Master. As the first sword collided with the person's Saint Weapon, it knocked him backwards quickly, while he produced a muffled cough from his throat. He was already heavily injured.
Before the person could even return to his senses, a second sword shot towards him. Although it was successfully blocked by the person, he spat out a mouthful of blood onto his hand which held the Saint Weapon that had already become numb from the clash. His right hand with the Radiant Weapon drooped powerlessly.
Closely afterwards, the third Radiant Saint Force Sword attacked the heavily-injured man, basically right after the second sword. It pierced the man's chest and when it had entered half way, it suddenly exploded, and blasting the assassin's body to shreds. Even his soul was unable to escape, instantly killing him.
A Heaven Saint Master had fallen by the hands of a Class 6 Radiant Saint Master just like this, not to mention the fact that it was under a situation of many-against-one, attacking from all directions.
After killing a Heaven Saint Master, Jian Chen did not show any happy emotions. His expression remained just as cold, while powerful killing intent exuded from his eyes. He then pointed his right hand at the sky with his head held up, and gazed at the pitch-black sky, "Judgement's Sword!"
