Chapter 357 Slaughter
With a flash, Fang Xingjian appeared before the little girl. At this moment, her face was filled with malice, and the big hole at her stomach continued to bleed. She looked more like a ghost than a human.
However, as his body became a flash, Sally’s six light wings fluttered at the same time and she also dashed out. She carried the little girl with her while speaking furiously through information currents, “Stop it, Fang Xingjian! She’s just a kid! She has only become a death troop because her body was modified by the people from Sand Country!”
Fang Xingjian threw a glance at the little girl. It was true that she was like a wild beast. Aside from the malicious expression she was wearing and the low growl she was producing, there was no hint of intelligence.
Since the start of the Sand Country’s first generation, after it had been founded by the Heavenly Sovereign of the Blood Sea, they had always possessed a unique skill in the modification of the human body and excelled in turning ordinary people into a slaughter machines.
That was just like how it was for this little girl. The close-range attack she could deal with her tongue had a prowess comparable to that of a Knight who was at the pinnacle of level 19. Even though her arms had been chopped off and a hole had been made through her stomach, she was still alive.
If it were an ordinary Conferred Knight who had just transitioned for two months… The little girl would drawn their attention, allowing for two second transition assassins to launch a sneak attack on the Conferred Knight. After this, the person would most probably die.
However, the Sand Country had greatly underestimated Fang Xingjian’s abilities. The assassins had merely waited for the chance when Fang Xingjian was alone. They did not know that his abilities were sufficient to allow him to defeat a level 25 Conferred Knight.
Fang Xingjian looked at the little girl whose state of mind were only filled with numbness, anxiety, and pain. Just like when she was selling flowers earlier, it was clear that she had been put through something similar to brainwashing and now lacked the ability to think like normal people.
He threw a glance in Sally’s direction and said calmly, “Ridiculous.”
As he said that, he deactivated Boundaries Negation. WIth a slight flash, he went past Sally’s body.
The little girl’s head flew into the air. Her body struggled for a while and then died completely.
Sally looked at the headless corpse in her arms and did not react even when fresh blood spilled onto her body. Then in the next moment, she turned to look in the direction of Fang Xingjian’s backview and said furiously, “She’s just a kid! A kid who isn’t even ten years old! How could you kill her?! She is also a victim to have her body modified!”
Fang Xingjian turned back, and with Boundaries Negation activated, he dashed out at a speed which was 15 times that of supersonic speed. A long whistle seemed to emit in the air, and Sally’s countenance changed. The light sword in her hand swept out, turning into layers of nets made of swords, encompassing toward Fang Xingjian. However, with his Unparalleled Sword Intent, Fang Xingjian was able to break through all the loopholes.
Scorching white steam emerged from Fang Xingjian’s body as he stomped down on Sally’s chest, kicking her over 100 meters back. Sally dropped down to her knees and spewed out a large mouthful of blood.
“Rambling on and on, you’re really annoying.” Fang Xingjian threw a glance at Sally and said, “If you want to investigate the matter with the Rebirth Sword Technique, then do it yourself. I’m not interested.
“As for who I want to kill, it isn’t related to you either. If you were to interfere with my matters again, I’ll tear off all six of your wings.”
Sally shuddered, and a tingling feeling ran through her shoulders again. Even the spot on her chest, where she had been kicked, seemed to heat up with a feeling she had never had experienced before.
However, Fang Xingjian turned to leave. With a few flashes, he disappeared into the night sky. Half a minute later, a few Conferred Knights arrived. When they saw the destruction caused to the streets and Sally, who was kneeling down and recovering slowly, they exchanged glances with grim expressions.
To think that the Sand Country had really come all the way to the Great Western City to assault Fang Xingjian…
Additionally, they could imagine that unless Fang Xingjian really gained powers which allowed him to be unmatched in the world, these devils from the desert would not leave this lying down. It was all for the sake of their national hero, Domirov. This was probably the first assassination, but it would not be the last.
Fang Xingjian, who had left, frowned. He turned his head and threw a glance in Sally’s direction.
After sending her flying with a kick earlier, his mental cultivation method had actually improved by a lot!
Over the next few days, Fang Xingjian cultivated his sword arts continuously, ate the delicacies Zhou Xingwen sent him from various places, as well as tempered his attributes endlessly.
As for the matter of the authorizations, Fang Xingjian had left them to Ferdinand and Zhou Xingwen. So, right now, all he had to do was wait and receive the money.
Meanwhile, he had already informed Robert about the materials he required for the cultivation of the mystical prints. This ex-head of a dojo, who had participated in the same Prefectural Selection as Fang Xingjian and then followed him to the Regional Academy, was now completely loyal to him.
Hearing that Fang Xingjian wanted him to help gather materials, without a second word, he went to the Great Western City’s market.
This day, September 1st, was the start of the third month Fang Xingjian had been at the Regional Academy.
Fang Xingjian sat in the training room with his legs crossed. His consciousness was going through a rage as many skill seeds sent out glaring lights, as if his entire consciousness had turned into a brilliant Milky Way.
The skill seeds which represented the Phenomena Sword Formation and Lightless Sword clashed against each other furiously, and countless pieces of information started flowing through the two of them.
In the next moment, the skill seed representing the level 40 Lightless Sword shattered, and all the information related to the Lightless Sword disappeared completely from Fang Xingjian’s brain.
Fang Xingjian shook his head and then lifted his head to look at the stone wall before him. it was carved with the secret manual for the Lightless Sword.
Although he had failed, his physique continued to grow stronger. This was because of the cultivation Fang Xingjian had been through during this period of time, as well as the support he had received from the Headmaster, which allowed him to dine on various ferocious beasts, and heavenly and earthly treasures everyday. Like this, Fang Xingjian continued to make great progress with his power.
His Waves went through another step of progress, and the Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves was now at level 3. The area in which Terra Ingurgitation could be applied to was now within a three kilometer radius. Its prowess was also over nine times stronger than when it had been at level 1.
After the arbitration and the capture of Sword Saint Sasa, as well as after giving Sally two rounds of beatings, Fang Xingjian’s mental cultivation method, which had not gone through any progress for very long, increased in leaps and bounds. This time around, his Universal Sword Dominance Lunisolar mental cultivation method had also finally reached level 6, and his Ether Sword Ripples achieved an effect of three times of his strength.
Therefore, Fang Xingjian’s attributes were now:Name Fang Xingjian Age 17 Occupation Heavenly Sword Sovereign Level 22 Strength 126+9 Agility 219+9 Reaction 116 Endurance 92 Flexibility 92 Ether Synchronization Rate 34% The attributes above come into effect once the Prodigious Astral Divine Powers Waves is activated.

Just then, Robert’s voice rang out from outside the door, “Xingjian, are you there? The things have arrived.”
