Chapter 341 Pursue (Part II)
Armstrong’s hand was quickly pushed away by Sally. However, Potter realized that not only could he not talk, but there was also a surge of power controlling his body.
Countless information flowed everywhere in his brain, constantly changing his brain signals and changing the control his brain had over his physical body.
‘What is this Killing technique?
‘Is he controlling my physical body?’
Armstrong gently rubbed his forehead as he controlled Potter’s body with great mastery. It was one of the most secretive techniques in the Ancient Path of Hell, a Killing technique which less than ten people knews of—Small Puppet Technique.
From Sally’s point of view, Potter only went into a daze for a short moment before he regained his senses and said, “Madam, it was Fang Xingjian. He started killing the moment he entered the house. His sword arts are too strong. Both of us weren’t able to stop him.
“Baroque Sword fought desperately to ensure that the three kids were not killed.”
Sally looked at Heaven-Shaking Sword in a daze. “Fang… Xing… Jian!”
Potter continued, “Madam, Fang Xingjian is too strong. We must request for assistance…”
When Potter was going through this scene, he was bellowing out furiously in his mind. However, he was not even able to control a single inch of his body.
‘Return my body to me!
His entire consciousness seemed to be trembling, but he had no way of getting out of the control of the Small Puppet Technique.
Sally looked at Potter’s face and said suddenly, “Potter, you’re tearing up.”
Potter, who was under control, wiped off the tears on his face and said, “I’m fine. It’s just that dust had gotten into my eyes.”
However, the scene of Potter tearing up was deeply engraved into Sally’s mind. She turned toward Armstrong like a furious lion and bellowed, “Did you hear that? Your genius, your precious Fang Xingjian, assaulted my subordinates. Not only has he ruthlessly killed one of my subordinates, he even assaulted the victims! What are you guys still doing here? Go catch him!”
Armstrong smiled and said, “I apologize. I can’t arrest another Conferred Knight based on just the words of this person alone. Everything needs evidence.”
Sally glared into Armstrong’s eyes and said, “Great Western Region, you guys really deserve to die. Haven’t you thought of the consequences if this were to continue?”
Armstrong shrugged, “Sorry.”
“I will report this to the association after I return. As for Fang Xingjian, I’ll catch him myself.” Sally looked at the path of houses and streets Rakshasi and Fang Xingjian had destroyed, and her tone filled with anger as she said, “Those loud noises from earlier all came from that direction, right?”
With a slight tremble of her body, the clothes on her back were torn apart, and six wings made of light stretched out from the surface of her skin. These light wings seemed to have been formed by many beams of light. They were extremely dazzling and brilliant, as if they had no physical structure.
There were even hints of starlight which flashed as the light wings flapped.
With a light leap, Sally shot out, as if she were a shooting star, toward the direction in which Fang Xingjian had gone to chase Rakshasi.
The six light wings behind her were very unique. With each light flutter, Sally’s speed would not increase, but the wings would create tremors and caused the space to warp, allowing her to dash through the natural gaps between spaces.
Space was something which could not be shattered but could be compressed. The six light wings on Sally’s back had the ability to compress space.
Both Fang Xingjian and Rakshasi dashed at high speed by relying on their physical abilities, which caused strong gales to blow and inflict great damage to the surroundings. They also left behind a large amount of trails for Sally to use and track them down. After all, each step they made created a large meteor crater. It was simply too easy to track them down.
Each time Sally fluttered her light wings lightly, she would fly a distance of over 1,000 meters. In less than half a minute, she had already arrived at the location of Gao Tu and the others. However, after looking around, she could not find any trace of Fang Xingjian.
‘Where is he? This Fang Xingjian… Where has he hidden himself?’
Sally looked around, and at the next moment, she suddenly felt her body grow lighter.
‘This is…? The technique Fang Xingjian learned from the Pantheon Monument?’
As an arbitrator, Sally naturally had read in detail about Fang Xingjian. Seeing that her body as well as the rocks and trees in the surroundings had lost their gravity, she immediately realized what was happening.
‘Is Fang Xingjian fighting with someone?’
In the next moment, four silhouettes crashed through the cliff walls, soaring up into the skies amidst the dust. Sally turned her head quickly and looked up at where those four figures were. Fang Xingjian was holding a rock sword up high. An extremely heavy energy was gathered around it, as if it would slash apart the entire earth with one slash in the next moment.
‘Who are those four people?’ Sally frowned, feeling very perplexed over this battle. However, the enemy of one’s enemy would be one’s friend. No matter what the reason was that Fang Xingjian was fighting those four, it would not change Sally’s decision to apprehend Fang Xingjian.
After Gao Tu and the others dashed out, they escaped in all directions as per Gao Tu’s instructions. Flames were thrown out from all over Gao Tu’s body, and he dashed toward the north like a fiery meteor.
The twins, Zhang Zuo and Zhang You, grasped onto each other’s arm and surges of power started to flow between their bodies. Although the two of them appeared as if they were moving very slowly, the had dashed over several hundred meters away in the blink of an eye.
Rakshasi let out a furious bellow which was filled with dissatisfaction, humiliation, and fury. “Fang Xingjian, treasure your final moments!”
She was the one who had it worst from Fang Xingjian, and she was also the one who was most unwilling to escape. This was especially the case when she felt that if the four of them were to join forces, they would have the advantage. Yet, they still had to escape. This made the flames of fury burn intensely in her heart.
However, since Gao Tu was unwilling to fight with Fang Xingjian, she could only follow his orders.
However, just as the four of them were escaping in different directions, a loud whistle rang out, “Don’t be afraid, I’ll hold him off. We can work together to capture him.”
Just as Sally spoke, she condensed a light sword in her hand. After the flickering of consecutive flashes, over 100 swords appeared and surrounded Fang Xingjian, thrusting out toward him.
Fang Xingjian held onto a rock sword which had been created from the level 40 Thunder Immuring Earth Sword and was condensed with the powers of Terra Ingurgitation. However, it would only be able to deal a single blow.
Therefore, when Fang Xingjian was suddenly confronted with Sally and her violent attacks, he put up his other hand to form sword fingers and tapped onto the tips of Sally’s swords. Fang Xingjian blocked all of the sword attacks with his fingers acting as a sword.
Sally was pushed back, and she laughed coldly, saying, “The Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor is truly powerful. However, to think that it has landed in the hands of a devil like yourself. Today, I’m going to rip this set of treasured armor off you.”
Fang Xingjian looked at the small charred mark on his finger and said coldly, “Who are you? Why are you stopping me?”
“Knight Association, Arbitrator Sally.” Sally glared at Fang Xingjian and said, “You’ve already forgotten about the things you did in the Great Western City earlier?”
However, Fang Xingjian was more concerned about the four people who were escaping. Gao Tu and the others also seemed to be stunned by Sally’s sudden appearance. They all stopped their attempt to escape and gathered together.
Rakshasi said coldly, “Are we still going to escape in this situation? That idiotic woman has already chased him all the way here! We can kill her here and put the blame on Fang Xingjian.”
“That would be meaningless. It’ll be a waste of time to let the people up there send other people here. It’ll allow more time for the dissemination of the Rebirth Sword Technique. Hmph, and do you think that we can just kill this woman like that?” Gao Tu said calmly, “However, we can help her capture Fang Xingjian.” How could Gao Tu not be angry that he was being pressured by a junior to escape like that? Moreover, letting Sally capture Fang Xingjian would be great for their plan.
As they spoke, the four of them had already gradually surrounded Fang Xingjian.
“Arbitrator Sally, right?” Gao Tu let out a laugh and said, “Let us help you catch Fang Xingjian.”
Fang Xingjian glanced at the five people who had surrounded him and then said to Sally, “Have you misunderstood something? I’m considered to have saved your subordinate back in the Great Western City earlier.”
“Saved my subordinate?” As the scenes of the ruins, the wounded people, and Baroque Sword Marcus, who had died, flashed through Sally’s mind, she exploded with fury, and her light wings turned into a pure gold color.
“Do you think that I’m an idiot?” Sally’s gaze was covered by the pure golden glow. “Wait till I’ve broken all your limbs before we have a good talk.”
Fang Xingjian’s brows arched as he said, “Woman, did you eat sh*t? Scram this instant. Otherwise, I’ll kill you as well.”
