Chapter 352 Dispute
Their voices had been loud to begin with, and this was also when the crowd was leaving the arbitration scene. So, many people just happened to encounter the dispute scene as they were walking out. There were at least 100 people who were now looking in their direction.
They thought the matter had ended after Sasa had begun to leave. However, Sasa unexpectedly stopped in his tracks, turned back, and glared at Fang Xingjian.
Fang Xingjian spoke up, “Do you want me to continue?”
“You!” Sasa was in a state of confusion now. He did not understand how Fang Xingjian had managed to know about the information in the sword intent.
Fang Xingjian continued, “Are you sure that the contents which you deciphered are definitely authentic?” As he spoke, an awe-inspiring aura came out from his body. “I can recite all the information you’ve obtained because, to begin with, they were put there by me.”
Sasa’s mind exploded, and he glared at Fang Xingjian with bloodshot eyes, clearly extremely infuriated. “You! You…! You…!”
Sasa was so angry that he could not speak.
How much importance had he attached to the dragon’s scale and the contents within? During this period of time, he had worked hard on studying it, despite neglecting his sleep and diet. Sasa placed so much hope on this dragon’s scale. He had even gone all out in order to start this arbitration on the Rebirth Sword Technique. Yet after spending so much effort and energy, all he had gotten his hands on was a piece of information Fang Xingjian had casually put into the scale… How could he possibly accept this?
Moreover, this was just after he had a dispute with them earlier while feeling extremely satisfied. The gap between what happened before and after was much too great.
“Fang Xingjian! You really deserve to die!”
Overcome by anger, Sasa reached out one of his hands, lunging toward Fang Xingjian. “Hand out the real Heaven’s Volition Sword Intent!”
However, the moment he took action, he was stopped on both sides by Head of Department James and Hoppes, who was the head of the sword arts team.
James bellowed furiously, “Sasa, how dare you! Are you thinking of assaulting a Conferred Knight here?!”
“I…” Sasa was stunned for a moment and felt that the situation was not in his favor. Being a level 29 Conferred Knight, his fury was only kept up for a moment, then he immediately wanted to retreat. However, Governor Devitt was already there waiting for him. With a light tap of his finger, a chilly air gushed forth, making Sasa afraid of moving even a single inch.
Governor Devitt, Head of Department James, and Hoppes, who was the head of the sword arts team, were all top notch second transition and level 29 Conferred Knights. Surrounded by the three of them, Sasa’s countenance turned extremely pale. “What do you want?”
“According the the regulations of the Great Western Region Regional Academy, teachers are forbidden to assault students. Just before, you assaulted Fang Xingjian, who is a Conferred Knight. So, of course, we’ll need to arrest you, put you under confinement, and decide on your punishment accordingly.”
“You are going to put me under confinement?! Even if I assaulted him, that’s something for the Knight Association to handle!” Sasa bellowed angrily.
James let out a cold laugh. “The academy has a certain level of autonomy. How could we possibly report the small problem you’ve just gotten yourself into? It’ll be settled with just a few days of confinement.”
Sally shouted from the back, “What are you guys doing? Stop it! Personal fights are forbidden between Conferred Knights!”
However, no one paid any attention to her words. Devitt, who was both the Governor as well as the Headmaster of the academy, smiled and said, “Arbitrator Sally, we’re just going implement the punishment for Teacher Sas in accordance to the academy’s regulations. This is not within the association’s purview.”
Sasa looked at the prowling gazes of the three Conferred Knights, and his heart sank. In the next moment, his body suddenly flickered. Using his fingers as a sword, Sasa then pierced toward Fang Xingjian.
Was there a Conferred Knight who was not extremely powerful and selfish, and showed no respect for law and regulations?
The only reason they allowed themselves to be managed by the Knight Association was only because the association was very strong and could suppress them.
However, Sasa knew that once he was suppressed by these three people and confined in the Regional Academy, no one knew what would be in store for him. Sasa was not an idiot who would passively await destruction. Therefore, he targeted this attack at Fang Xingjian, the weakest link.
He pointed with his fingers and sent sword Qis gushing forth. In that instant, it was as if space itself was being pierced by this sword. An aura, which was obscure, formless, yet full of sharpness, emerged from Sasa’s body and thrust toward Fang Xingjian.
It was the job technique of Sasa, the Sword Saint. This was the strongest job technique of the Sword Saint who had come from the desert—Penetrating Amorphous Sword Qis. His powers could be used directly on the atomic structure, breaking down and disintegrating the physical structure of any physical object.
The only flaw of this Penetrating Amorphous Sword Qis was possibly that its speed was slightly slower.
However, for so many years, Sword Saint Sasa had continuously synthesized various techniques onto the Penetrating Amorphous Sword Qis. Not only did he manage to increase the speed of the sword Qis, the job technique also allowed the sword Qis to have the power of lightning and fire, and could fluctuate between high and low temperatures.
All objects struck by the sword Qis would first be brutally disintegrated. Additionally, even if their structure was so firm that they could not be broken down, they would also received the attacks by twelve types of power, including high temperatures, low temperatures, penetrating impacts, trembling impacts, and lightning.
Even if ordinary Conferred Knight could rely on the toughness of their physical bodies or precious armors, as well as using transformative Killing techniques to increase the sturdiness of materials in order to fend off the brutal disintegration impacts… they would often be incapable of withstanding series of twelve impacts at the back.
To Sasa, Fang Xingjian would die if he were to receive this blow from him. The others would definitely attempt to help Fang Xingjian, allowing Sasa to find a chance to get out of this fix.
Everyone thought the same. Or rather, Governor Devitt, Head of Department James, and Hoppes, who was the head of the sword arts team, all thought the same thing. It was because Sasa’s speed was much too fast, and the attack was quick as lightning. Only the three of them managed to react to it.
However, just as they were about to take action, an awe-inspiring aura was unleashed endlessly from Fang Xingjian’s body, soaring up into the sky.
‘What is this?!’ Just as Sasa was thinking that, Fang Xingjian’s voice had already turned into information currents, flowing into his brain.
“Didn’t you want the Heaven’s Volition Sword Intent? Then I’ll let you carefully experience its prowess.”
For the past few days, including the remaining potential points he had been left with previously, Fang Xingjian had once again accumulated 100,000 potential points. At this very moment, he depleted all of them at one go, once again activating his Heaven’s Volition Sword Intent.
Confronted with the gushing Penetrating Amorphous Sword Qis, 600 streams of Ether Sword Ripples poured out. It was the equivalent to there being 1,500 Fang Xingjians attacking at once with the Heaven’s Volition Sword Intent activated. In almost an instant, all the Penetrating Amorphous Sword Qis were wiped out completely.
Next, Fang Xingjian waved his hand, and over ten blood swords shot forth, sinking into the ground and setting up the Phenomena Sword Formation. Within a ten-meter radius, countless lightning bolts, water vapors, dirt and dust particles soared up, acting as a block for Fang Xingjian. The block temporarily fended off the few Penetrating Amorphous Sword Qis Sasa had shot out once again.
Then Sasa let out a furious bellow. He was struck by James’ finger tap, Hoppes’ kick, and Devitt’s punch. Blood gushed out violently from Sasa’s body. His organs turned into a lump, and his bones seemed to have turned into dust. However, he still managed to dash up to Fang Xingjian and wave his hands, bringing forth countless Penetrating Amorphous Sword Qis. They tore apart the barriers made from lightning, earth, and water vapour.
Looking at Fang Xingjian’s panic-stricken expression, Sasa laughed maniacally in his heart. All the remaining sword Qis gushed forth, about to tear Fang Xingjian into dust.
However, at the next moment, as the light flickered, the clone created by the Phenomena Sword Formation shattered. Sasa was taken aback, only to discover that a chilly air had already frozen his legs. Then James and Hoppes came in from his left and right, each of them pressing down a hand on his shoulders.
Under the pressure of their overwhelming power, Sasa wasn’t able to move his body at all.
However, with his eyes wide-open, he continued to looked at Fang Xingjian who was several tens of meters away. He asked, “Why? Through my Heaven’s Perception, that clone was exactly the same as you. How could it be fake? It’s easy for the Phenomena Sword Formation’s clone to deceive others, but how could it possibly deceived me?”
