Chapter 163 Three Moves
Seeing Fang Xingjian, a hint of astonishment flashed past Rota’s face. She walked up to him and asked, “Fang Xingjian, why are you here?”
As she spoke, her gaze turned towards the two Knights who were at the side: the moustache man who was lying on the ground; and the ponytail guy who stood there motionlessly.
When she saw the wounds and tattered clothes on them, her gaze sank.
Fang Xingjian sat there motionlessly, and spoke with indifference, “Rota? You’re also from Versailles Clan? My Seism Steel has been taken away by you guys.”
“What rubbish!” Dali jumped out and argued, “When did I take your Seism Steel?! Stop slandering us!”
“Shut up.” Rota knew of her brother’s character well. He was not one who would do evil acts of all sorts, but he was ignorant and incompetent and would throw his weight around.
Rota threw an apologetic glance toward Fang Xingjian, but then realized that he was not able to see her expression. Therefore, she said, “I’m sorry, my younger brother did not know any better. What on earth is going on? Can you tell me?”
Therefore, Fang Xingjian shared the whole story before asking, “That should be enough. If you have any other questions, you can ask these two.” He pointed to the moustache man and the ponytail guy, then said, “They know the situation better. Now, when are you guys going to return me my Seism Steel?”
Everyone from the Versailles Clan glared at Fang Xingjian furiously. The three middle-aged Knights were obviously not happy with how Fang Xingjian had came knocking on the door and created trouble. However, they did not say a word. They merely looked at Rota, letting her make the decision. This was despite the fact that they were all senior Knights who were stronger than Rota.
Rota thought about it for a while before she cupped her fists together and said to Fang Xingjian, “Naturally, I’ll investigate what you’ve said. Within three days, I’ll definitely give you a reply.” Seeing that Fang Xingjian had nodded, she then drew out her silver spear with a swoosh. Pointing its tip toward Fang Xingjian, she said, “But you barged into our Versailles’ territory and injured our staff. We can’t let this go.”
Fang Xingjian smiled, “Then what do you want? A one-on-one? Or will you guys all attack together?”
Rota lifted her head high proudly. Looking toward Fang Xingjian, she said, “Fang Xingjian, although you defeated me last time, you are now blind. That’s why I had never thought of getting even with you.
“But you bullied members of our Versailles Clan. It’s no longer a personal grudge but rather, you’ve insulted our clan. Therefore, I have to point my spear toward you.
“You have two choices. You can either apologise or we can fight it out. I won’t bully you either. I’ll take you on alone.”
“Sister!” Dali complained. To him, they were in the advantage and could just charge up to Fang Xingjian and give him a thrashing. Why should they have to go through so much hassle? He was just genius who was past his prime. Now, he was merely a blind man.
“Shut up. Have you not created enough trouble as it is?” Rota glared at Dali coldly and the latter kept quiet. It was obvious that Rota, as the elder sister, had been the one with the power over the years and Dali would comply to each and every of her actions.
Fang Xingjian nodded, “What you’ve said sounds fair, but I’d be bullying you if I were to fight against you. I’ll just sit here without moving my legs and accept three moves from you. It’s up to you on what you want to use, be it Nurturing, Training, Killing techniques, or even if you wish to burst out your extraordinary strength.”
Rota’s eyes narrowed and she said in a ice-cold tone, “Seated there without moving your legs and accept three moves from me?”
She was aware of Fang Xingjian’s amazing talent from before and now, she was seeing him suppressing two Knights by himself. It was only now that she felt although Fang Xingjian was blind, it might not be the case that he could not fight.
Therefore, she wanted to try out Fang Xingjian’s abilities by herself. This way, the problem could be kept small if she were to lose. It would be better than having to manage the situation if all of them were to charge up and fight him but then having things eventually ending up in a totally unexpected situation.
However hearing that Fang Xingjian wanted to sit there, motionless, and accept three blows from her, she felt that there was simply no end to his arrogance. Her Void Penetrative Divine Spear was one which could pierce through the gaps in space and attack from a distance away.
Anyone who had to be her opponent would hope to close up the distance from the start to break through her Killing technique. However, even though Fang Xingjian was now blind, he wanted to sit there and take three of her blows? It was a different case altogether to be seated, rather than standing. When one was standing, he would be able to step on the ground, shift his weight freely and control the outburst of energies.
However, when one was seated, all the pressure would be on the butt and he would not be able to unleash his full powers.
Therefore, upon hearing Fang Xingjian’s words, not only Rota but everyone from the Versailles Clan felt that Fang Xingjian was simply too arrogant and did not know any better.
They looked at Fang Xingjian as if they were looking at an idiot.
However, Fang Xingjian ignored them. He merely sat up straight and looked at the black and white image formed by the sword Qis in his mind. He turned in Rota’s direction and said, “Make your moves.” He then shut up, obviously not planning to say another word.
However, he did not even draw out the longsword at his waist.
After he finished these words, everyone felt as if there was a gust of cold wind blowing past them in the surroundings, causing them to feel as if countless longswords were secretly pointing towards them.
Rota, who was right in the front, furrowed her brows. When Fang Xingjian looked over her previously, she had a feeling as if he had not gone blind.
However, she had a strong mind. After going through the battle with Garcia, her mental state had even gone through a qualitative progress. Therefore, she shook the silver spear in her hands, creating a sound that was as if the air currents were shrieking. She spoke out in a loud voice, “Then you better be careful. Don’t get killed by my spear and become the laughing stock of the Empire.”
Fang Xingjian kept his mouth shut. Rota closed her eyes and released a surge of predatory aura. Everyone else felt that as if, in that instance, they had appeared in a battlefield with a large number of infantry and cavalry.
The next moment, Rota’s eyes suddenly opened. Crimson red light shone around her body and she was encompassed by streams of heated currents. Even the silver spear in her hands was covered up by a layer of shining red glow.
The last time she displayed her Effulgence Weapon in the academy, she had not just harmed her body, but she was also easily defeated by Fang Xingjian.
However, during this period of time, not only had she relied on the treasured items from her clan to recover, but she had also progressed further and could temporarily display the Effulgence Weapon without harming her body.
The Effulgence Weapon, together with red light, encompassed the whole silver spear. Waves of ripples which could be seen by the naked eye formed around the spear. The high temperature had caused the air to appear distorted.
Rota’s Effulgence Weapon had both high temperature and corrosive characteristics. It had an amazing attacking prowess and was a great compliment to her Void Penetrative Divine Spear which was elusive, but its attack was not strong.
Fang Xingjian seemed to have also sensed the danger. He smiled and said, “Not bad, to be able to use the Effulgence Weapon without suffering any damage before you have even succeeded in the second transition. As expected of the Versailles Clan’s genius.”
When he said this, he still did not draw his sword. He merely drew out the dagger at his waist, the grade 7 Empire’s Divine Weapon, Silver Dragon.
Rota let out a cold laugh and said, “Fang Xingjian, you think you can take three blows from with just that small dagger?”
Seeing that Fang Xingjian did not reply, Rota’s eyes narrowed. She circulated the force from throughout her body, unleashing powerful gusts of explosive wind. The silver spear in her hands cut across the air like a silver-red thunderbolt. It disappeared without a trace, then exploded at the top of Fang Xingjian’s head.
