"Yun Qi was killed? Bei Feng was injured and his personal unit was destroyed? His whereabouts are currently unknown?"
An angered roar exploded inside a courtyard in Intermittent Cloud City within the Saint Continent.
Qiu Tian Qing roared at the top of his lungs, his anger had reached the threshold, causing transparent ripples to surface layer after layer around him, the air in the hall became unstable as his killing intent pervaded outwards.
Everyone beneath him had faces of rage, their eyes bloodshot. The Qiu Family had never suffered such a humiliation before, without any reason, important figures of the Qiu Family were killed instantly, even if the other party was Temple, or the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights, the Qiu Family would never accept it.
Qiu Yun Qi and Qiu Bei Feng were the first sons of the Qiu Family, although Qiu Bei Feng's personally led guard unit consisted of only a 100 men, they had formidable fighting strength, and had the famous name of [Ivories of the Qiu Family], and placed amongst the Qiu Family armies, they could be at the top five.
The huge loss had caused the Qiu Family to suffer tremendously.
Qiu Tian Qing had a mediocre appearance, but when he was angered, he looked like a lion. His gaze swept across the various generals, his eyes were so cold that there was not a shred of warmth in them. He suddenly laughed, as though he was a wild beast about to choose someone to devour, his imposing bearing devastated everyone present.
"Since when has our Qiu Family become docile sheeps that could be killed by others if they wanted to?"
The generals all sat in their seats, not daring to make a sound.
Qiu Tian Qing was clear on why Sophie took action, and also knew of the movements and actions that the Qiu Family had done in the shadows, but so what? Even Temple did not dare to publicly announce any relation between the Qiu Family with the assassination of the Sacred Son. The Honorable Martial Banner of Knights' move on the Qiu Family was a sign of overstepping over the lines.
Sophie wanted to kill to establish power, but a pity, she had chosen the wrong person, the Qiu Family were not a group of people that would take a beating that easily.
Qiu Tian Qing's mouth surfaced a cold sneer.
Right at that moment, an alarm erupted suddenly, with unknown personnel rushing over.
Qiu Tian Qing's eyes gleamed, the smile on his face became even colder: "Look at that, this is a world where the strong feasts on the weak, if you are weak, then you will be swallowed up to the point that not even your bones remains."
With that, he walked out.
The generals stood up and followed behind Qiu Tian Qing.
Intermittent Cloud City, inside an extravagant study, a middle aged man heard the sharp alarm, and stopped what he was doing and raised his head: "Where is the alarm from?"
Upon hearing that, a bodyguard immediately rushed out. After a moment, he returned and reported: "It is from the Qiu Offense Institute!"
~Qiu Offense Institute!~ The middle aged man's eyes contracted, that was the Qiu Family's [ had Qiu Offnse Army]'s encampment, upon thinking about the latest report that he had read, the middle aged man's heart felt uneasy.
~Could it be that they have estimated Temple's reaction wrongly?~
In the night before, the Qiu Family's base in Snow City was cleansed, Qiu Yun Qi was dead, the [ his Ivories of the Qiu Family]tion"> the was destroyed, and Qiu Bei Feng was severely injured and escaped, with his current whereabouts unknown.
The people responsible were the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights! There was no reason, no notification, a sudden ambush through the night, directly killing the Qiu Family off. If not for the confirmation that the culprit were the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights, the middle aged man's first reaction would be suspecting that someone was intentionally causing trouble, because it was definitely not the style of Temple.
They had cleansed the Qiu Family's base in Snow City the previous night, and in the next day, they went for the Qiu Offense Institute.
~Temple's means are becoming more vicious~, he had some worries in his heart, that it was completely different from what he had anticipated. The dissatisfaction of the various Prestigious Families towards Temple stemmed from a long time, while Temple was like a monster that constantly grew, and constantly devoured the place where everyone could live.
The Temple that was built in Honorable Martial Continent in the past and the current Temple was completely different. In the past, Temple had once formed an agreement with the Prestigious Families to share and govern Honorable Martial Continent, but Temple grew stronger, causing the Prestigious Families to retreat throughout the years. Especially when Temple threw out the supposed trump cards that were required to be recognized as Prestigious Families, a new batch of small families started to pose threats to the first rate Prestigious Families.
One after another, all the once famed first rate families started to decline, causing all of them to harbor an intense sense of predicament.
They wanted to change everything, but Temple governed extremely well and stably, and did not reveal any weaknesses. Only when the Holy Bell was activated, the first rate Prestigious Families immediately realized that the opportunity that they had always been waiting for had appeared.
He came back to his senses, he did not believe that Temple had the courage to destroy indiscriminately. The Honorable Martial Continent belonged to Temple, even if they were able to seize some benefits from Temple, it would not change this fact.
~Furthermore, Temple, you only have your Banner of Knights left, do you still think you were like before?~
The Qiu Offense Institute held the Qiu Offense Army, which was the Qiu Family's strongest army, which was a unit far stronger than what Qiu Bei Feng's personal unit could compare to. Temple wanted to use the Qiu Family as an example to scare everyone else, but Qiu Tian Qing was a man with an unyielding character, he would definitely not surrender without a fight.
~There'll be a good show to watch!~
The middle aged man thought in his mind, ~Temple only has the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights. If the Qiu Offense Army fights without a regard for anything, both parties will be severely injured, no, even if they are able to harm the Banner of Knights in the slightest, Temple's situation would become even more difficult.~
~Qiu Tian Qing, don't disappoint me.~
The Qiu Offense Institute was the Qiu Offense Army's base, but inside the Saint Continent, aside from Temple, no one was allowed to build any strongholds. The Qiu Offense Institute was just an ordinary courtyard, which the Qiu Family had done some slight renovations, increasing its defense and sentry posts.
Qiu Tian Qing stood on the highest post and glanced outwards.
A Trading Ship that had no Insignia was stopped 3 kilometers away from the Qiu Offense Institute, it was not huge, and looked extremely ordinary. Qiu Tian Qing frowned slightly, he was baffled, he did not know what was strange about it, but felt as if there was something wrong.
The trading ship opened its doors, which revealed darkness where no one else could peep in. The entire Qiu Offense Army all held onto their breaths as they opened their eyes wide.
"I'm off." Tang Tian puffed up his chest and spoke valiantly to Qian Hui.
"Be careful, don't try to be brave." Qian Hui replied gently.
~Sweet, it's too sweet, she's sweeter than honey! Tang Tian had a look of infatuation, no, his mind was intoxicated, his heart sighed in sorrow, ~The books were right, heroes have a weakness for the charms of beautiful women, heroes truly have a weakness for the charms of beautiful women!~
~Oh man, I can't get over it, I can't get over it….~
Sima Xiao could no longer tolerate it, then coughed once: "You guys can be intimate after the battle."
Seeing Qian Hui's flushed red face, Tang Tian acted as though it was nothing, and waved his hand while yelling: "Move out! Time to trample Qiu Offense Institute!"
With that, he jumped out from the door.
The group of men jumped out while yelling and screaming like a pack of ravenous wolves.
After separating from the trading ship, when Tang Tian felt that Qian Hui could not hear him, he coughed, and spoke out: "Do you guys know why I didn't want to sneak attack today?"
"Because the enemy's defenses are tight…." Fu Zheng Zhi suddenly felt as though his thoughts sounded dumb, and changed his words: "Boss, what do you mean?"
"What's so cool about a sneak attack? How can it display our strength?" Tang Tian waved his hand: "For the battle today, not only must we obtain victory, we must obtain it beautifully, we must showcase ourselves, and show off our imposing manner. I will spill out all the ugly words, if I find out that one of you is lazing around and isn't displaying yourselves well, causing me to lose face in front of Qian Hui, we will have a good talk after everything ends, for example, more training, hehehehe!"
The evil laughter, along with his demonic way of saying "more training", caused everyone's heart to tremble.
"Boss, don't worry! We will never let Boss loss face in front of Lady Boss." Ji Ze immediately patted his chest and promised.
Tang Tian was pleased: "Little Ze Ze, you're good! Come, does anyone have a plan? We need to make it big!"
Upon hearing that, Fu Zheng Zhi was not pleased, ~I can't let this go on, how will I compare to Ji Ze like that?~ He immediately roared: "Everyone, bring out your enthusiasm, all of you shall raise your heads and puff your chests out, be tyrannical, be extremely tyrannical, Xiao Wu, your expression must be more ferocious."
Tang Tian nodded his head: "Right right right!"
Ji Ze immediately retorted: "True experts, strolls around leisurely. It will be too deliberate if we try to showcase tyrannical auras, it will not showcase the bearing of experts."
Tang Tian agreed: "True, true!"
The soldiers were confused: "......"
Qiu Tian Qing looked at the hundred men that came out from the trading ship, ~Their numbers seem to tally with the Banner of Knights, but…..~
Qiu Tian Qing, who was soaring with killing intent just previously, frowned, his emotions being pulled on. ~Why are all these men dressed in masks in such weird stances? And they are even revealing their temperament…..~
The more Qiu Tian Qing looked at them, the more he felt that they were a group of hoodlums who were on the streets asking for protection money.
~Are they acting as weak enemies?~ Qiu Tian Qing quickly shook his head, the enemy's formation was extremely messy, and did not even have the standard of an amateur. ~No matter how the Banner of Knights try to disguise themselves, they can't be that bad.~
The doubt in Qiu Tian Qing's mind grew heavier and heavier, ~Who are they?~
On the trading ship, Xiao Man and Ah Xin starred dumbstruck at the God Armor Army that had no formation.
"Do they really….have any fighting capabilities?" Xiao Man asked softly, the tone of her speech was extremely queer.
Ah Xin was unsure: "Maybe they are intentionally making that formation?"
The two of them were military generals, and were proficient in guiding and fighting with strategies and formations. With one look, they could tell that Tang Tian and his group did not have any formation, and were moving as though they were unable to cooperate.
~This is the biggest mistake for an army.~
"We should prepare to save them." Xiao Man pouted, in her memory, Fu Zheng Zhi and Ji Ze were two bootlickers, not only bootlicking Tang Tian not enough for them, they had to bootlick Qian Hui.
She glanced at AH Xin, ~No wonder they are able to mix with him, they are all jackals from the same tribe!~
Ah Xin nodded his head, completely unaware that he was unjustly ridiculed.
Walking valiantly with vigor towards Qiu Offense Institute's simple doors, Tang Tian felt excited.
~This is my first time revealing my strength in front of Qian Hui~, upon thinking about such an important fight it was, the Godlike Young Man felt his entire body brimming with energy.
Tang Tian raised his right hand tyrannically: "Hold the lines well for me!"
"Boss is the strongest!"
Everyone exclaimed out loudly, they scattered like a skirt being pulled, they raised their blades, held onto their swords as their saliva came out from their mouths. The only thing lacking were tiger or dragon tattoos on their bodies, otherwise they would look remarkable alike to a gang challenging their enemies to a fight.
Qiu Tian Qing was completely dumbstruck, he had gone through all sorts of battles, but it was his first time witnessing such a scene.
The middle aged man who had rushed over was dumbstruck as well, with only one sentence in his mind, ~What the hell is this?~
On the Trading Ship, Xiao Man was equally stunned, she who had fought her way out through mountains and seas of corpses, extinguished millions of spirits, was completely stunned as she stared straight at Tang Tian.
Ah Xin's eyes was bright, he could not resist but compliment: "Too cool!"
"I guess you guys won't surrender."
Tang Tian's words resonated across, but everyone had not recovered from their shock, inside the silence, his voice was extremely clear.
"Then here I come!"
Tang Tian shouted out, he immediately formed a horse stance, under the scrutiny of countless of startled and sluggish eyes, his right arm was raised slowly, and pulled to his side.
His eyes gleamed with a cold light, and his five fingers that were stretched open formed into a fist.
The change was too sudden.

Looking at the gates of the Qiu Offense Institute, Tang Tian calmed his excited heart, he did not require any arousal, but the fighting spirit in his body was already overflowing out of his body.
~Qian Hui, I've become powerful!~
~Qian Hui, I've always wanted you to see my strength.~
~Qian Hui, the day is finally here.~
His fist was clenched tight, pa, what seemed to be a clear sound of glass breaking came out, like a ferocious tiger escaping its cage, an overwhelming aura surged out from Tang Tian.
Tang Tian lowered his head slowly, his face that was covered with the mask hid within the shadow, with only his eyes gleaming with light, shining through the darkness.
Zzzzi zzzi zzzzi.
Different colored light strands flashed all around like rainbow colored lightning bolts, and revolved around his fist.
On the trading ship, Qian Hui's eyes widened, she used her hand to cover her mouth, her face covered with shock.
Xiao Man's face that had a disdainful look froze, she blurted out: "What is that?"
Ah Xin's expression was exactly the same.
But the one who was in the most shock was Qiu Tian Qing. He did not know what the different colored lightning strands of lights were, but the intense sense of danger that choked him enveloped his entire body. He felt as though he was lying under a guillotine that was flashing with light, the cold blade tip was on his neck, causing all of the hairs on his body to stand.
He had experienced hundreds of wars, countless moments where he struggled to live, and was familiar with the aura of death.
~The aura of death is always so stifling.~
He knew that being afraid would not help, he forced himself to calm down, took a breath, then roared: "Energy Barrier!"
The Qiu Offense Army soldiers woke from their stupor, they gathered in a panic and surged with regiment of light auras, a thin light barrier appeared over their heads, and enveloped the entire Qiu Offense Institute.
Without the need for Qiu Tian Qing's orders, the soldiers maintained to increase the density of the energy barrier. This displayed the Qiu Offense Army's experience and professionalism.
Qiu Tian Qing knew that the defense unleashed by the Qiu Offence Institute was weak and would not withstand the enemy's devastating attack.
The energy barrier continued to congeal, allowing Qiu Tian Qing to heave a sigh of relief, the unease in his heart decreasing slightly. The Qiu Offense Army's full force expansion on the energy barrier could withstand an attack from a warship.
His attention once again landed on Tang Tian, allowing him to witness a surprising scene.
Tang Tian's fist no longer had the rainbow colored strands of lights that resembled lightning bolts. His fist had become a dazzling sun. Flows of energy, like arrows that shot through the sky at such a fast velocity that the friction produced streaks of lights were converging towards his fist. They gathered from all directions, as though they caught the scent of a prey, and were frantically surging towards Tang Tian's fist.
The dazzling light auras caused half of Tang Tian to be bright, while the other side was as dark as an abyss.
Qiu Tian Qing had just calmed down from the energy barrier, but the sense of danger came back up.
~It is shrinking!~
Flash after flash, the astonishing ball of light caused his heart to jump. ~Why do I feel that I am facing against a gold grade warship?~
~How can an individual's strength reach such a terrifying level?~
Qiu Tian Qing's hand, which was holding onto a cane, was trembling.
"Truly, our boss deserves to be our boss." Ji Ze's eyes lit up as he praised. When they were still adapting to Sacred Saint Galaxy, Tang Tian was already seeking for new breakthroughs.
With one look, Ji Ze could tell that Tang Tian was using Godfist.
Godfist was a move derived from the Awakened God Amor, and it was something they were familiar with. But the Godfist that had appeared was different from before.
The laws were completely destroying the surging ocean of energy, but no one could sense their existence. The astonishing amount of energy could no longer be compressed, and its undulations constantly changed. The undulations became weaker and weaker, but the heart palpitating feeling became stronger.
Pa, the energy regiment in Tang Tian's right fist suddenly stopped moving, causing everyone to feel as though a pair of invisible hands had clasped onto their hearts, causing them to tremble.
The entire process felt endless when in truth, it was in a millisecond.
Just when everyone thought that Tang Tian was about to unleash his fist, an undetectable smile flashed on Tang Tian's face, no one was able to see, the fist inside the light regiment was already extended opened. The Law threads that were extremely rigid, had already been dyed a dark gold, and appeared within Tang Tian's palm, as though he had donned on a dark gold glove woven by gold threads.
The initially bright light regiment suddenly dimmed down, the energy that had been compressed to its maximum flowed like liquid along Tang Tian's palm, and enveloped his palm.
Qiu Tian Qing stared at Tang Tian's palm blankly, he had never seen such a strange and bizarre technique. But the more he looked at it, the stronger the unease in his heart became.
To a military general, to immediately face an unknown enemy attack like facing a great enemy was normal. The only thing that made Qiu Tian Qing feel a bit of security was the dense energy barrier.
Although the enemy's attack looked strange, it required a long time of preparation. This long period was enough for Qiu Offense Army's energy barrier to be strengthened to its maximum.
Regardless of how the opponent was about to attack, the energy barrier was extremely strong, and was able to defend against any forms of attack. This was Qiu Tian Qing's experience from the countless of battles he had been through.
With his palm extended flat, the light aura released was much weaker as compared to the dazzling sun before. This gave off a completely different aura, the regiment of blazing light before was tyrannical, causing people to acknowledge its destructive might without hesitation. But the light from the palm had an indescribable charm, attracting people's attention subconsciously, all of them were unwilling to look away from the light.
It was extremely bizarre and attractive.
While everyone was fixated to it, the faint light released by the palm that resembled a jade statue palm gently slashed down and cut through the empty air in front of him, without any sign of sparks.
The light aura released in mid air caused the congealed energy barrier to tremble, and the floor beneath their feets to shake. It felt as though a bass drum beneath the ground had been struck once, the low and terrifying sound caused everyone to be overwhelmed by shock while their ears buzzed.
No one would had expected that the gentle slash would be able to produce such a terrifying effect!
Qiu Tian Qing's body trembled, the expression on his face took a huge change, his eyes filled with shock.
~How is that possible?~
The energy barrier formed by Qiu Offense Institute actually had signs of being destroyed just from one attack.
Without even looking, Tang Tian raised his palm once more, and unleashed another slash.
The low pitched sound that caused people to tremble came out once more.
"Stabilize the energy barrier!" Qiu Tian Qing could not stand uprightly, he roared, his voice containing an almost undetectable tremble.
Tang Tian's eyes flashed with a cold light. He raised his palm again, and slashed multiple times.
Boom boom boom boom!
The sound waves that sounded like bass drums caused everyone to sway, as shattered auras flew all over like pieces of wood, causing everyone to feel a chill in their hearst. The dense energy barrier trembled incessantly, like a big bubble being blown by the wind that could break at any moment.
Under the emotionless black mask, Tang Tian's indifferent gaze could be seen.
This low and loud sound was even more impactful than all the previous sounds caused everyone to tremble, the visible ripples in the air and the pieces of shattered auras in the sky made it look as though a powerful tornado had descended on Qiu Offense Institute.
The Qiu Offense Institute's large doors were transformed into pieces of wood, and were scattered by the gales.
The sentry post beneath Qiu TIan Qing's feet was blown apart like paper. He reacted quickly, jumping out of the sentry post in time and landing steadily, yet blood was visible at the corners of his mouth.
What was left in his eyes was shock.
~How is this possible?~
~How can one person's strength be at such a level?~
Qiu Tian Qing knew that even in the mysterious Heaven's Road, where they valued individual strength, the strongest martial artist could not go against an army. To rely on an individual strength to destroy the Qiu Offense Army's full force energy barrier, meant that the attack previously had a power that exceeded that of an ordinary warship!
~How on earth is there a person that can be so powerful?~
~He isn't from the Honorable Martial Banner of Knights!~
Qiu Tian Qing had interacted with the Banner of Knights before, although they were extremely powerful, but they were not at such a terrifying level.
~Sophie? Could it be Sophie?~
The only person that could be so powerful was only one person in the Banner of Knights, Sophie.
But Qiu Tian Qing knew it was not her, although the other party was wearing a mask, but he could tell from one look that the opponent was a man!
"Who exactly are you?" Qiu Tian Qing roared as he stared straight at the other party.
He had countless of thoughts in his mind, he had never heard of such a powerful man before, as though this man had crawled out from a rock. Qiu Tian Qing knew that it was impossible, that such an expert could not be groomed in a day, he had to go through countless of brutal battles and grow and improve. Powerful martial artists never appeared as a fluke.
~Could he be a secret weapon from Temple?~
His heart suddenly froze.
"You don't need to know."
Tang Tian's reply was emotionless and indifferent. His move was truly a transformation from the God Armor Army, but his emotions and emotions had unknowingly been influenced by the God Armor Army.
He raised his leg, and walked leisurely towards the Qiu Offense Institute.
His right palm slashed effortlessly at the Institute once again.
There were no dazzling light auras, no sharp shriek sounds. Qiu Tian Qing's heart jumped, he immediately shouted: "Be careful!"
The Qiu Offense Institute used black steel for their walls, but they were cut apart horizontally with ease, and its upper half disappeared.
A few of the soldiers closer to the walls were unable to react, and were sliced at their waist.
Qiu Tian Qing roared once, he finally threw away the fear in his head and shouted: "Autumn Wind Slaughter!"
The soldiers roared in unison, the light auras around their bodies expanded out, the white energy around them flew up into the sky like fireflies. They continued to grow larger and stronger, transforming into many light leaves.
The unique thing was that although these light leaves were formed by radiant energy, and did not have life, they actually had signs of decaying.
The wind brought about a bleak killing intent, the wind suddenly became stronger, and caused the light leaves to dance.
It became like late autumn, the leaves that were scattered all about were flung into the air as well, making it feel as though there were countless of leaves flying all about.
Tang Tian did not stop walking forward, and slashed down.
Multiple flying leaves suddenly lit up, and disappeared.
Suddenly, a blade aura appeared in mid air in front of Tang Tian, its body covered with leaves. The blade's body suddenly unleashed light aura, which quickly dimmed down. It was as though the leaves in the air had corroded the blade.
Tang Tian's eyes lit up with a strange light aura.
