Chapter 314 Interrupt
Just as the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent in the dragon's scale was throbbing as though it would leap into Fang Xingjian's arms at any time, a cough rang out suddenly behind Fang Xingjian. The Heaven's Volition Sword Intent then shrank back violently and returned into the dragon's scale, disappearing without a trace.
Fury surged up from Fang Xingjian's heart, and he stood up abruptly and looked behind him.
He saw Sasa standing there apologetically, saying, "I'm sorry, Xingjian. I came over seeing that it's about time. Did I disturb you?"
Fang Xingjian's face seemed to be filling with killing intent. Anyone who had the same situation as earlier, in which they were disturbed at the moment when the Heaven's Volition Sword Intent was just about to enter his body and thus resulting in everything going down in failure... would probably be so angry that they would feel like killing someone.
This was especially the case for Fang Xingjian since he had spent so much effort in trying to lure the sword intent out. Moreover, he did not know if he could succeed on the next attempt. This made the killing intent surge in Fang Xingjian's heart even more.
However, Fang Xingjian knew that right now, he was not a match for Sasa, a level 29 Conferred Knight. Therefore, he did not take action against Sasa. Fang Xingjian just threw a cold glance at him and left after taking note of this in his heart.
However, to Sasa, Fang Xingjian's actions were already greatly disrespectful.
'Hmph. Fang Xingjian, from now onward, you won't have much time to fiddle with my dragon's scale any more.'
Thinking of the secrets to the dragon's scale, Sasa could not help but feel a strong craving.
The secret concealed in the dragon's scale could not be said to be invincible, but it was related to striving for the Divine level. With it being such an important item, Sasa was completely bent on getting his hands on it and would definitely not allow others to have it instead.
'I must get my hands on the secret to the dragon's scale before Fang Xingjian does.'
As for whether Sasa would destroy the dragon's scale, kill all the rest of the researchers, or take any other actions, it would all depend on what was the secret he had discovered.
Right now, being faster than Fang Xingjian was not the only thing Sasa needed to do. Considering Fang Xingjian's confidence, in order for Sasa to hog the secret to himself, he had to prevent Fang Xingjian from being able to continue studying the dragon's scale.
Meanwhile, Fang Xingjian was infuriated, and even his footsteps became faster as he dashed out like a sharp sword, leaving behind deeply entrenched sword marks in the ground.
However, with his mental cultivation method circulating, he was basically still clear-headed. Thinking of the document he had gotten his hands on, Fang Xingjian headed toward the agreed location of the meetup.
Fang Xingjian arrived at the mountain path behind the academy like a gush of wind and saw a guy dressed in black robes standing there. It was the person who had given him the document yesterday.
Seeing that Fang Xingjian had arrived, the guy said, "You're here. How is it? After taking a look at this set of data, did you break out in cold sweat? To think that the Nurturing technique which you have spent all your effort in creating has such a big loophole."
Fang Xingjian said coldly, "Who are you? What do you want?"
"I want you to head to Sand Country to help me search for something." The guy let out a cold laugh, "If you don't agree, then this set of data and report will be sent to the Knight Association."
The Knight's handbook was handled by the Knight Association, and if any sword techniques reflected on it were found to have any problems, then naturally it would be left to the Knight Association to find and punish the person responsible.
There had been countless cases in history regarding plagiarizing or counterfeit martial art techniques. Those Conferred Knights responsible did not end up in a good plight.
It was easy to understand if one were to think about it. The Knight Association was in-charge of managing all of the over a hundred thousand Knights and Conferred Knights in the Empire. How much authority did they hold? In order to uphold their dignity, credit, and authority, if they were to discover any cases of counterfeits or plagiarism, the culprits would be dealt with severely.
Firstly, the culprit would be disqualified from being a Knight and would be imposed with a hefty fine. The person's power would also be taken into consideration depending on how serious the case was, and they might be partially crippled to reduce a certain degree of their power. In more serious cases, it would treated as treason.
Of course, even the simplest warning would prevent the Knight from being able to get any more cultivation resources, and the person would not have a future in the Empire.
Any academy or influences would reject having these Knights join them.
Therefore, the threat given by the black robed man was very solemn and very serious.
However, Fang Xingjian let out a cold laugh and said, "There's no way that there's a problem with my Rebirth Sword Technique. There must be other interfering factors that would cause these three students from this school to suffer from internal injuries. Therefore, I won't accept your threat."
Fang Xingjian had the world's best sword talent, so how could he lack confidence in his own sword arts? It was because he understood his sword arts very well. He also understood each and every move to the Rebirth Sword Technique, so he knew it would definitely not have any problems.
The Rebirth Sword Technique was created by combining the essence of 100 sets of Nurturing sword techniques, and which of those 100 sets of sword techniques had not been through repeated polishing?
The problem could only lie with the cultivators but definitely not on the Rebirth Sword Technique.
This was the judgement made from the confidence that Fang Xingjian had toward his own sword techniques as well as his high level of sword arts mastery. It was because of these that he did not panic the moment he received the news nor let it affect him from studying the sword intent. Neither did he end up in a state of confusion and anxiety when the black robed man brought up his request.
With a slight move of Fang Xingjian's hand, a stone sword came out from the surface of the ground and into his hand. Under the effect of the Swordless Path, it had become a level 19 Inferior Divine Weapon.
Fang Xingjian said calmly, "I'm not interested in your threat. The reason I've come is to see who on earth would dare to threaten me.
"I hate people who threaten me the most."
As he spoke, Fang Xingjian moved his body. It was as if a stream of electricity was piercing through the air, and a sword light shot out and stopped at the man's neck.
Fang Xingjian said calmly, "Now, let me see who on earth you are."
The ether sword ripple swept passed the guy's robe, and it instantly tore into many pieces. However, the person revealed was not really a person but a clay figurine.
The clay figurine opened its mouth and laughed softly, saying, "Fang Xingjian, we knew that you're arrogant, imperious, and would resort to violence if things didn't go well. How could I possibly come in person and get into a fix?"
The next moment, the clay figurine let out a cold laugh, "Leave the academy within three days. Head to the Sand Country and wait for my next instruction. Otherwise, you can just wait to be interrogated by the association."
After saying that, the clay figurine immediately disintegrated and turned into fine sand, falling onto the ground.
Fang Xingjian looked at the fine sand on the ground and went into deep thought.
'The Sand Country? Are they thinking of getting my Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor? Are they people from the Sand Country?'
The only people whom Fang Xingjian could think of who would do this seemed to only be people from the Sand Country. They wanted to lure him to the Sand Country and get their hands on the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor. After all, this was a Divine Weapon made from their national hero's corpse.
'Within three days.' Thinking of this, Fang Xingjian turned to leave. Of course, it was impossible for him to head to the Sand Country. It would take him at least a month to travel to there and make it back. How could he possibly waste his time on this?
Moreover, there was no need for him to deal with this alone.
At the Head of Department's Office.
"What? Someone suffered from internal injuries after cultivating your Rebirth Sword Technique? Is it a deterioration of their organs?"
Fang Xingjian passed the data to James, the Head of Department, and said, "It can't be a problem with the sword technique. There must be some other interfering factors.
"But if they were to hand this to the association, and the association were to come and investigate this, it would spell trouble."
"It's going to be more than just trouble." James frowned and said, "Those officials are able to create problems even if there's nothing wrong to begin with. Even if we were to prove that there's no problem with us, the two of us, or even the school would probably suffer from great losses.
"There's no need for you to concern yourself with this matter. I'll get someone to settle this.
"Everything will be easy to deal with if we can make the people from this school shut up."
