Despite seeing the Purple Mage King retreat, Fang Xingjian did not stop her. He merely turned and slashed out. Then a purple light flashed as if something had been slashed off from Lilia's body.
With Fang Xingjian's slash, Lilia's eyes regained their clarity, and she reached out her hand. "Master!" However, she then noticed that her body was plunging down uncontrollably. Lilia could only watch as Fang Xingjian got increasingly further from her.
Fang Xingjian did not look at her. The moment he was certain that Lilia had already left safely and would land outside the Imperial Capital, he could no longer hold it in.
The emotions he had lost for three years had once again returned to him.
After getting the details of the current battle situation, the first emotion he felt was fury, great fury. Endless flames of fury burned in his heart.
At this moment, he had a strong feeling of wanting to kill.
It was not because someone had killed his subordinates, thus making him want to return the favor. This was not a murderous desire that sprouted out from understanding this line of reasoning.
Rather, it was that at this moment, there was only the thought of killing in his heart.
With a flash, this 10% of his powers returned to the Great Western Region and once again blocked True Lord Qingshan's attack.
In the Northern Ice Region, the Fifth Prince looked at Fang Xingjian with excitement-filled eyes. He kept on pushing back Fang Xingjian who seemed to have no means of retaliating.
How long had the Fifth Prince waited?
How much had he sacrificed?
How many times had he failed?
This time around, he could finally crush Fang Xingjian, who was a thorn in his flesh, just like how he would crush an ant.
However, at the next moment, the Fifth Prince suddenly discovered that the Fang Xingjian before him had suddenly disappeared.
At the same time as he disappeared, Fang Xingjian transmitted a stream of information into the Fifth Prince's brain.
"Five seconds. When I leave, you have a total of five seconds to think about your last words."
In an instant, Fang Xingjian disappeared completely, and the Fifth Prince's fist force struck out toward Jacob, who was previously behind Fang Xingjian.
Jacob's countenance changed and retaliated with the Holy Light Clan's Myriad Holy Light, sending it to collide fiercely against the Fifth Prince's Three Worlds' Eradication.
However, before the Three Worlds' Eradication, the Holy Light Clan's ultimate technique was a futile attempt that was doomed for failure.
The Fifth Prince crushed Jacob's martial will completely with his punch, almost instantly turning it into dust.
Countless light spots shattered in midair like many fireflies, trying to gather together with great difficulty.
However, when the Fifth Prince saw that his punch had shattered Jacob's martial will to the extent that Jacob was on the verge of death, his proud expression changed to that of panic.
"Come out here!
"If you don't, I'll kill him!"
Fang Xingjian's words continued to ring out in the Fifth Prince's mind. The panic on his face grew more and more intense, and he struck out another punch. In midair, Jacob's distorted martial will shattered once again, and Jacob dissipated into nothingness.
Jacob—the greatest expert amongst the seven great clans and the Holy Light Clan's head—who had been forced to submit to Fang Xingjian previously, finally died in the Fifth Prince's hands.
However, the Fifth Prince did not feel satisfied at all, and his face was filled with panic. In the blink of an eye, he turned into a long stream of light and disappeared into the horizon.
Right now, there was only one thing on his mind.
'The further, the better.'
It was because he understood clearly just how terrifying Fang Xingjian would be once he started going against the principles he had set for himself, when he no longer cared about his subordinates or even about anyone's life...
The First Prince looked at the Fang Xingjian, who was in shatters, and finally stopped his attack, breaking out in laughter.
To him, the current Fang Xingjian no longer had any means of retaliating.
He looked at Fang Xingjian and said, "Fang Xingjian, I've always admired your talent. But of all the things you've done, you shouldn't have gone against the Krieg royal family.
"This was the greatest mistake of your life.
"Our clan founded the Empire two hundred years ago. The foundation that we've set up isn't something that you can covet."
The more the First Prince spoke, the more exhilarated he felt. How long had he dreamed of Fang Xingjian groveling before him, being beaten up with no means of retaliation?
Right now, this dream was finally being realized.
'As expected. I'm the one chosen by god. Only I can be the one to lead the entire Empire. It's me who is the most outstanding successor to the Krieg royal family.'
However, at the next moment, a stream of sword light cut across the sky and broke the First Prince's train of thoughts abruptly.
Fang Xingjian's clone—the one that had left the Fifth Prince—arrived before the First Prince. The two sets of 5% of his powers merged into one and Fang Xingjian's battle prowess instantly increased by multiple folds.
After all, even though his powers had doubled, his actual battle prowess would not simply increase by more than two times. It was like comparing a person who struck out a punch with a force of 50 kilograms and another who struck out a punch with a force of 100 kilograms. The difference in battle prowess would be much more than twice as much.
The First Prince looked in the direction the sword light flew from, and his countenance changed. He stopped his attacks temporarily and thought, 'What's going on? Did someone fail?'
However, he was not sure how much battle prowess the Fang Xingjian before him possessed.
Meanwhile, Fang Xingjian simply looked at the First Prince before him. Countless emotions and memories suddenly surged into his heart, and it was as if the entire world had become more lively.
The most intense feeling he felt was the fury in his heart.
'In the past, I had no emotions and only acted like a human based on the rules I set.'
Sensing the fury in his heart, Fang Xingjian had never felt so alive before. At this moment, he suddenly felt that he did not need any reason or motive to do anything or kill anyone.
It was as if there was nothing in the entire world that could stop his decision now.
Fang Xingjian looked at the First Prince and asked, "You aren't going to escape?"
The First Prince's expression became twisted, and he gritted his teeth, striking out a punch in his fury. The Three Worlds' Eradication turned into a surge of black light which went charging out toward Fang Xingjian. This ultimate martial technique no longer had the reinforcement from the God of Universal Truth, but in the First Prince's hands, its destructive prowess had reached a certain extremity.
Unless one were to go deep into the microscopic world, there were no attacks that could remain intact before this attack.
However, a sword light flashed, and the First Prince's arm was cut off entirely.
Wild and furious bellows rang out from the First Prince's martial will as he punched out again. Black light surged, encompassing Fang Xingjian and Audrey who were before him.
Yet when the black light dissipated, the First Prince's other arm was cut off, turning into light fragments which dissipated into the sky.
Looking at the undefeatable Fang Xingjian, the First Prince finally revealed a desperate and regretful expression.
It was only when Fang Xingjian was able to perform his true abilities that the First Prince realized he was actually this weak.
Unknowingly, the gap between him and Fang Xingjian had become like the gap between the sky and the earth.
'Has our difference... already reached such a level?'
At the thought of this, he suddenly felt extremely regretful. He regretted not having killed Fang Xingjian in the past and that he had not gone all out to win him over later on.
Performing his final attack in despair, the First Prince jumped up abruptly and sent his head smashing fiercely toward Fang Xingjian.
Their heads clashed, but then the First Prince's head instantly turned into dust. His body started to crack, turning into light spots that filled up the sky and slowly dissipated into the air.
Looking at the light fragments, Fang Xingjian disappeared once again, turning into a stream of sword light that dragged across the sky. He instantly crossed a distance of several kilometers and appeared in the Xingwu Region.
