Chapter 326 Collision
“You sensed it too?” Baroque Sword, Marcus, said, “You should understand that if the Rebirth Sword Technique is real, then it may change the entire Empire’s—no, the entire world’s way of cultivating. For such a thing to appear, what do you think…”
“That’s enough.” When Baroque Sword said up to this point, the Heaven-Shaking Sword felt as if all the hairs on his body were standing up.
If the Rebirth Sword Technique was real, then what impact would it bring to the martial prowess of the entire world? If it was real, then what was going to happen to the Nurturing techniques from the other factions? What was going to happen to those powerful experts who had signed contracts to publish their Nurturing techniques for royalties?
Additionally, from the point of the government, for them to face the people from the lower levels as well as the Knights and Knight apprentices who were going to get a huge leap in their powers… What would the government think?
Thinking of all these, Marcus was drenched in cold sweat. He had really gotten himself involved in a extremely big whirlpool.
However, what he could not understand was why the management had only sent them, a level 24 and a level 25 Conferred Knight, to handle such a big case. What on earth were they planning?
The two of them did not know what to do. It was because till now, they had yet to receive any orders and did not know what the management was partial toward.
The management had tasked Sally with this job. By sending someone who was easily swayed by her emotions but was also righteous, it seemed to be a way for them to express their attitude to this case too.
Just as the two of them were deep in thought, Fang Xingjian’s voice rang out from the staircase.
“So, that’s the case. The two of you don’t know the actual situation either?”
With a loud bellow, Baroque Sword Marcus and Heaven-Shaking Sword Potter both looked in Fang Xingjian’s direction. Pitter patter explosive sounds rang out in the air, and the walls in the surroundings seemed to have been struck by air explosions as a massive area of cracks appeared on them.
With just a slight agitation of the Reduced Force Fields of those two people, it seemed as if they were going to tear the whole house down.
A woman’s scream filled the air, and the woman, who came to ask questions earlier, dashed to Baroque Sword’s side and asked, “What’s wrong? What happened?”
Baroque Sword said in a low voice, “If you don’t wish to die, then don’t move recklessly!”
The two Conferred Knights looked at Fang Xingjian and asked, “Who are you?”
“Me? Am I not the person you guys are investigating this time around?” Fang Xingjian walked slowly toward the two Conferred Knights, as though he was taking a leisure stroll in the garden.
The countenances of the two Conferred Knights turned grim as they glared at Fang Xingjian and asked, “Fang Xingjian? Why have you come here? The arbitration is going to start in three days. What are you thinking of doing?”
Fang Xingjian stopped at the boundaries of their Reduced Force Fields and spoke with indifference, “Don’t be nervous. I’m only here to look at the three brats who have gotten injured and to find out the reason why they’ve gotten injured.”
The Heaven-Shaking Sword said coldly, “You can leave. There’s no way that we’ll let you meet them.”
Just then, the middle-aged woman’s expression turned into that of madness. She looked at Fang Xingjian and said while trembling, “You! You’re Fang Xingjian! What are you trying to do? Are you here to kill us?”
Fang Xingjian frowned, threw a glance at this woman, and asked, “Who is she?”
“She is a family member of one of the victims,” the Heaven-Shaking Sword replied. “Marcus, bring Madam Dailey back. I alone will be sufficient to handle this.”
The middle-aged woman called Madam Dailey was almost on the verge of a breakdown. Tears gushed out from her eyes endlessly, and she shouted at Fang Xingjian, “Fang Xingjian! Haven’t you done enough harm to my son? You’re still thinking of killing him?
“I beg of you, let us off. We won’t go through with the arbitration anymore.”
Baroque Sword Marcus shook his head, speechless at this extremely self-contradictory woman. He lifted her up with one arm and brought her out of this place.
Heaven-Shaking Sword Potter shook his head and looked at Fang Xingjian, saying, “Mister Fang, why are you in a daze? Can it be that you want me to send you off personally?”
Fang Xingjian did not say a word, but with a stretch of his five fingers, a stream of Aquatic Sword Qi turned into an aquatic sword which he held in his hand. “I wasn’t in a daze. It’s just that I have too many ways of defeating you that I’m having some trouble choosing which method to use.”
“Hmph,” Heaven-Shaking Sword Potter let out a cold snort. Then he drew out his huge sword, which was over two meters tall, and said while clenching his teeth, “Arrogant brat! My level is higher than yours, and my killing experience is a hundred times of yours. I’ve also participated in more battles than the amount of rice you’ve eaten. How are you going to win against me? You better return quickly. I don’t want to find myself in trouble after I’ve beaten you up.”
“No matter how much battle experience a weakling has, it’s just the battle experience against weaklings.” As Fang Xingjian said this, he had already appeared suddenly behind Heaven-Shaking Sword Potter, sending out over ten streams of Ether Sword Ripples.
How fast was Fang Xingjian’s current speed? He had an agility attribute of 224 points, and once he activated both Single Sword World Subjugation and Boundaries Negation, he would exceed 15 times that of supersonic speed.
The Ether Sword Ripples could unleash an attack which was 2.5 times that of Fang Xingjian’s strength. After receiving the job progress he gained from completing the job transition as well as all the training he had been through, Fang Xingjian’s strength attribute was already at 123 points which the average level of a low tiered Conferred Knight.
The Heaven-Shaking Sword was not able to react to the Ether Sword Ripples which were sweeping out toward him with 15 times that of supersonic speed. So, he was sent flying backward, covered in blood all over.
Although Potter appeared to be bleeding a lot, Fang Xingjian had avoided his fatal points. To the Heaven-Shaking Sword who was a Conferred Knight, the wounds were merely superficial injuries.
Potter rolled on the ground, let out a loud bellow, and slowly swelled up as if he were in a hyperemic state. He then lifted up his huge sword and was about to dash toward Fang Xingjian.
Just then, Fang Xingjian appeared right before Potter, and an aquatic sword went through a hair’s breadth sized gap in Potter’s movements, piercing into him and touching his heart. The Heaven-Shaking Sword did not dare to move an inch as he sensed the feeling of the sword Qi right on his heart.
Then Fang Xingjian loosened his hands, and the aquatic sword formed from Aquatic Sword Qis turned into a ball wrapped around the Heaven-Shaking Sword’s heart.
Fang Xingjian spoke softly next to Heaven-Shaking Sword’s ear, “Stay still. I don’t wish to kill anyone today.”
The Heaven-Shaking Sword’s face was flushed red. To think that he was defeated so easily without even being able use 10% of his powers… Potter was completely overwhelmed by embarrassment and fury.
However, just then, another loud bang rang out. Fang Xingjian turned and looked in the direction of the sound. He saw that Baroque Sword Marcus was lying on the ground, while Madam Dailey was slowly drawing out a dagger from his body.
She laughed, “Thank goodness this guy isn’t level 25 yet. Otherwise it’ll be troublesome if he were to regenerate. He wouldn’t be lying there so quietly like how he is doing now.”
