After Fang Xingjian's interrogation, Morudo confessed everything, which was a surprising mismatch with his strong appearance.
Fang Xingjian finally understood Shang's background. It was really a gathering of countless experts across different generations and dynasties. After those experts' memories and emotions were gathered, they were then all revived through the relic that True Lord Qingshan had found.
There were even great experts who had been tier five or six Divine level experts back when they were alive.
True Lord Qingshan himself was also from the generation before the first onslaught.
Hearing this, Fang Xingjian was surprised. 'From before the first onslaught? Then does that mean the time of True Lord Qingshan's birth was during the same era as the parallel worlds I went to in the past when I was striving to clear the Nine-Tiered Heavens? For example, that Earth where extraordinary powers existed?'
Regardless, True Lord Qingshan's abilities were not to be underestimated. Now that Fang Xingjian knew about him, he would be more wary against him. Charlot's words also seemed to be more credible now.
However, Fang Xingjian did not immediately let the cat out of the bag and alert his enemies by dealing with the other members of Shang. It was because none of them knew where True Lord Qingshan was. Fang Xingjian decided to first let Charlot participate in the monthly competition tomorrow and see if his talk about being reborn was true.
'If it's really true... then one year later, I will already possess the ability to interfere timelines?
'And if I still fail in such a situation and need to send Charlot back, then how strong is my enemy?'
Fang Xingjian's eyes narrowed slightly, and a stream of sword intent penetrated through Morudo's forehead. It slashed into his consciousness and instantly knocked him out.
Morudo still had value to be used, but Fang Xingjian could not possibly let him be free to do whatever he wished. Therefore, he knocked Morudo out and kept him in the Second Prince's palace.
"Alright, you can send someone to help you register to participate in the monthly competition tomorrow. I'll be going with you tomorrow to take a look."
Fang Xingjian threw a glance toward Charlot and added, "Tonight, tell me about your memories for the one year to come."
This was also what Charlot was planning to do. Even if he had the memories for the following one year, he would not be able to turn the tables around by himself. Only Fang Xingjian had the chance to do so. Charlot was very clear on how powerful his Master was. Fang Xingjian was so terrifyingly powerful that he could make the whole world his enemy just by himself.
From the moment Charlot was reborn until now, he had already decided to hang onto Fang Xingjian devotedly.
Fortunately, Fang Xingjian was as reliable as he remembered. Charlot immediately went on to share all the situations and events that would happen in the next one year.
According to Charlot, although the Church of Universal Truth had sent people to stop the evil god summoning ritual, they still failed.
The ritual had succeeded, and the evil god's clone had descended. It was then jointly killed by the Krieg royal family, Mage Association, the Church of Universal Truth, and Fang Xingjian.
The evil god's heart and brain, which were left behind, stored the evil god's power and knowledge respectfully.
In the fight over these, the four Mage Kings, the Church of Universal Truth, and Fang Xingjian suffered from serious injuries. The Krieg royal family ended up taking the chance to take advantage of the situation.
All the gains were taken by Alexander and the Abyss Lord.The two of them got the evil god's heart and brain respectively, possessing a part of the evil god's power and knowledge. Thus, they got stronger in leaps and bounds, and then made use of the evil god's prowess to successfully subdue the four Mage Kings.
Fang Xingjian then struggled to survive while being attacked by the three massive influences—Alexander, the Church of Universal Truth, and Shang.
The entire Great Western Region Regional Academy was even jointly wiped out by Alexander and True Lord Qingshan.
Tyrant was absorbed by Alexander using the evil god's heart, while the Fourth Prince's will was smashed by True Lord Qingshan. Prince Philip was completely refined by the Abyss Lord, and Lan Yue was taken in by Alexander as his imperial consort. The Blue Sacred Moonlight surrendered, and the Astral Ancestor's whereabout became unknown. The Holy Light Clan's head, Jacob, was robbed of his intelligence and refined into a puppet... All of the Divine level experts under Fang Xingjian were crushed one after another.
Before Charlot was reborn, the four Divine Swords Fang Xingjian possessed were also snatched away by Alexander, the Church Saints, True Lord Qingshan, and the Black Mage King respectively.
Fang Xingjian was then chased down by countless experts who wanted to take his life. He ended up suffering from serious injuries, and he sent Charlot back before dying.
As for how he had managed to send Charlot back to the past was something that even Charlot did not know.
Charlot looked at Fang Xingjian and said, "Master, this time around, we must definitely not allow the Krieg royal family to seize the evil god's heart and brain. Alexander holds great animosity toward you, and if he gets his hand on power, he'll definitely not let you off. That True Lord Qingshan also seems crazy, staring at us all the time like a mad dog.
"What we need to do first is find a way to join forces with the four Mage Kings in the Mage Association, especially the Red Robed and the Purple Robed Mages. We don't have any undissolvable feud between us, so if we can join forces, we'll be able to have a chance to stand out in the future events."
Fang Xingjian did not give a proper reply to what Charlot said. He merely remembered what Charlot said and then hid himself in Charlot's body the next day, going along with him to participate in the monthly competition.
In this examination which many members of the royal family took part in, the results of the many rounds of competition ended up exactly as what Charlot had described. Fang Xingjian had also struck out across space, helping Charlot to clinch the victory for this competition.
Seeing that everything went exactly the same as how he remembered, Charlot was even more confident that he had been reborn.
"Master, the crux will be tonight.
"In the previous life, you were overly confident and snuck into the palace tonight, thus encountering the combined attack of the four experts—Alexander, the Abyss Lord, the Black Mage King, and the Red Mage King. Then True Lord Qingshan took this opportunity to launch a sneak attack on you, causing you to get injured. This resulted in you being unable to display your full powers during the evil god ritual, so you were unable to win.
Fang Xingjian looked in the direction of the palace in the sky and said, "This means that if I head to the palace tonight, I'll be able to encounter these four experts and True Lord Qingshan?"
"That's right." Looking at Fang Xingjian's expression, Charlot could not help but say, "Master, you can't possibly still be thinking of going, right?"
Fang Xingjian said calmly, "We'll have to fight it out between us eventually. Moreover, if things really turn out as you say, knowing these things in advance will give me an opportunity to turn the tables and kill True Lord Qingshan, and then join forces with the Mage Kings."
"Turn the tables to kill True Lord Qingshan?" Charlot said in surprise.
Fang Xingjian did not say anything else. Then with a flash, he left the anxious Charlot behind. By then, Fang Xingjian's presence was already gone..
Fang Xingjian turned into a stream of sword light and darted through the spatial gaps. Not only could he not be seen from the outside, but once he turned into light, nothing could stop him from piercing through. As such, he entered deep into the palace.
This Light Pursuit sword intent's latest development—the ability to turn the physical body into light—was what he depended on to sneak into the palace late at night.
If he were to be attacked at light speed by Divine level experts when he was not in the state of light, it was true that he could be injured.
However, if he was more careful and avoided sneak attacks, Fang Xingjian had the confidence to retreat fully from the presences of the five great experts, and he might even be able to deal True Lord Qingshan serious injuries.
Moreover, it was likely that True Lord Qingshan had really come from the generation before the first onslaught.
At the thought of this, Fang Xingjian's eyes gleamed.
