Chapter 356 Assassinate

    Chapter 356 Assassinate

    Seeing Sally's sudden appearance, Fang Xingjian's brows twitched and he asked, "What do you want?"

    "Heaven-Shaking Sword Potter is dead." She stared at Fang Xingjian and said, "It's said that Armstrong failed in his attempt to assault you at the municipal government's office. He's one of First Prince's clones... Was he the one who did that? Was he the one who killed Potter?"

    Fang Xingjian threw her a glance, intending to leave. Sally met his glance and felt a tingling feelings in her shoulders. It was as if she once again recalled the pain of having her wings torn off. However, she clenched her teeth and followed him.

    Fang Xingjian said nonchalantly, "The arbitration is over. You should return immediately."

    Sally lowered her head and replied, "I can't leave just like that, not knowing what is going on... The Rebirth Sword Technique... does it really have no problems?"

    "You'll know if you try to cultivate it yourself."

    Just then, a young girl holding a flower basket walked up to Fang Xingjian, "Sir, do you want to buy a flower for your wife?"

    Sally flushed red, feeling that tingling feeling get stronger. She said, "Little girl, don't spout gibberish. I'm not related to him in any way."

    The little girl went into a daze before going closer to Fang Xingjian, saying, "Big brother, please buy some flowers."

    Fang Xingjian shook his head and was about to leave when she grabbed onto his legs, "Big brother, I beg of you, please buy some flowers."

    Sally asked, "Don't you have any compassion at all? Little girl, don't beg him. I'll buy your flowers."

    Fang Xingjian threw a glance at Sally, but suddenly, his brows twitched as he put his arm up to block the tongue that the little girl's shot to his face.

    At the same time, one of his legs rose. The effect of Sword Bones turned the impact into a tremendous surge of sword force, cutting off the little girl's hands which were clutching him, and sending her flying.

    Just as Fang Xingjian had sent the little girl flying, the ground under his feet tremored and two hands stretched out at the same time, grabbing at Fang Xingjian's lower thigh.

    'Hmm?' Fang Xingjian sensed an extremely scorching feeling coming from the other party's hands. What astonished him even more was that the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor had shown a hint of hesitation, not fending off the attack with the scorching heat that came from the pair of hands.

    Under their touch, the moisture in Fang Xingjian's body started to evaporate. If he allowed the opponent to continue with this attack, Fang Xingjian would probably turn into a dry corpse within seconds.

    Fang Xingjian snorted coldly and Ether Sword Ripples swept across the air. The two hands were chopped off, making blood splurt as if they were coming out from a fountain. The two hands shrunk back.

    Fang Xingjian stomped down with one of his feet, activating the Phenomena Sword Formation. Strong sword force pushed forth and powerful geomagnetism forces were sent out, almost tangible. The earth trembled while layers of soil and rocks were pressed down, as if he was trying to squash the assassin into a meat patty.

    At the same time, Fang Xingjian lifted his head and looked at the little girl who was dashing toward him yet again. Right now, the little girl was wearing a savage expression, her face full of malice, and her long tongue filled with spikes that thrust out at Fang Xingjian's face like longspears.

    "Resorting to tricks."

    Violent information currents swept out and Fang Xingjian's voice rang out in the other party's brain, then exploded. The little girl let out a terrible cry and dropped to the ground. The impact with Fang Xingjian's martial will made her grab her head while crying out in pain.

    A faint light lit up behind Fang Xingjian's back and the Zenith Light Sword Formation activated, about to burn the little girl into crisp with a light sword.

    Just then, Sally abruptly placed herself between Fang Xingjian and the little girl as she glared fiercely at Fang Xingjian. A Conferred Knight's actions were very fast, but sound travelled very slow. She was unable to speak out in time and so she sent an information current, asking, "What are you doing?! She's just a kid!"

    However, the next moment, the earth trembled once again and a stone spike thrust out from the Phenomena Sword Formation, piercing the little girl.

    Now with a large hole pierced through her stomach, the little girl was crying like a maniac.

    Sally asked him, furiously, "Fang Xingjian, are you even human? How could you do this to a little kid?"

    Fang Xingjian did not pay her any heed and continued to stare at the ground, as if he was able to see through the earth, to see through everything. The next moment, as he leaped, the ground within a hundred meter radius of him had all turned into sand.

    Sally let out a furious bellow. The yellow sand had clung onto her lower thighs. She stretched out her light wings, but one of them appeared to be much smaller when compared to the others. It was clearly the one which Fang Xingjian had torn off the other time. These things did not grow as fast as her other body parts, making Sally's  movements a little sluggish.

    However, in the blink of an eye, she had already brought the little girl with her, compacting the space as she went through the gaps, and suddenly appearing midair.

    Looking at the area of sand stretching out for hundreds of meters, furious, she immediately said via an information current, "It's the people from Sand Country! Be careful not to get touched by their real body. Their Sand Country's barrier can dry up anything into sand."

    The moment Sally finished her words, over a hundred hands made of sand each the size of a truck reached out and grabbed at Fang Xingjian, who was in the air. They came with an impact equal to a hundred colliding trucks pressed together. Even just the overwhelming might they came with was enough make ordinary people go into shock.

    Especially when it was over such a widespread area. The buildings on both sides of the street had started to sink into the desert, as horrified cries rang from them.

    Fang Xingjian snorted coldly when faced with this attack. He pointed out with his sword fingers, and 12 streams of blood swords shot out from his fingertips. In the blink of an eye, the Phenomena Sword Formation had been set up in the surrounding space.

    Then, the water vapour in the air gathered together and swooshing sounds rang out, as if a large river had suddenly appeared. With a rumble, the river dashed out toward the sand. Drenched by the water, the sand once again turned into muddy land. Then, the six light spots behind Fang Xingjian's started flickering continuously. The Zenith Light Sword Formation was activated and the light swords swept out consecutively, heating up the muddy land and turning it back into solid earth.

    Before the person in the sand could react, Fang Xingjian had already stomped on the soil. As a muffled bang rang out under his feet, under the impact of the Phenomena Sword Formation, the geomagnetism force burst out violently. A series of muffled rumbling sounds similar to thunder kept coming out from the depths of the earth.

    In a few seconds, Fang Xingjian had already compressed the soil that was within a hundred meter radius. In an instant, the soil under his feet was compressed into a density equal with that of cement.

    The six light spots of the Zenith Light Sword Formation continued to spin behind Fang Xingjian's head, as if ready to attack at any time.

    Fang Xingjian lifted his sword fingers, making the earth flip over. Two people rose from the ground, encompassed by the soil. From their yellow eyes and brown skin, it was clear that they were Diests from the Sand Country.

    Fang Xingjian looked at this scene in astonishment, "People from Sand Country? Why have they come... Hmmm... Is it for the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor?"

    Fang Xingjian nonchalantly asked, "The two of you are also at second transition, right? Level 23? Or is it level 24? To think that you've travelled such great distances to the Great Western Region to assassinate me... What's the reason for this?"

    "You heretic! You've tainted the soil of our national hero! Maheshvara [1] won't let you off!"

    "Our deaths will be just the beginning! There will be stronger heroes who will come and assassinate you! You devil!"

    Maheshvara was the god revered by countless people from the deserts. These two assassins from the Sand Country were both about level 24. It was true that they were there to assassinate Fang Xingjian and to snatch back the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor. However, they had not expected that Fang Xingjian had already become so strong, even though he had gone through the second transition less than two months ago. To think that they were not even able to defeat Fang Xingjian despite them joining forces! On the contrary, they were easily captured by their target.

    Hearing their words, Fang Xingjian laughed coldly and said, "That's excellent! No matter how many of them come, I'll kill them all. if there's too many of them, then when I attain the Divine level, I'll make a trip to your Sand Country and wipe out your Maheshvara, national heroes, or any other characters."

    When the two of them heard Fang Xingjian's words, their expressions turned furious as they started cursing at him again.

    However, after a round of curses, the two from Sand Country suddenly broke out into horrified cries, and swelled up like inflated balloons at the next moment.

    Fang Xingjian's countenance changed. He activated the geomagnetic forces in the sword formation, tearing the earth apart, then tossed the two of them in and sealed up the hole.

    Not long after, the earth tremored and a loud explosion rang out from afar. A large number of buildings in the area collapsed once again.

    Sally could not bear to look at the scene. "These should be the death troops from Sand Country. Once they fail their mission, they blow themselves up. They definitely wouldn't leave their corpses in the hands of the enemy.

    "To think that two second transition experts died just like that..."

    Suddenly, her face went pale. She saw that, as he was walking to her, Fang Xingjian's face expressed a great killing intent. She immediately hugged the little girl in her arms tightly, "What are you thinking of doing? This little girl only had her body modified by the people from Sand Country in order to get your attention. Could it be that you're thinking of killing her?"
