Chapter 348 Grim
In the spectator stands, Hoult, who had personally handed the letter to Sally, let out a sigh and closed his eyes. Beside him, Norman, who had been with him all this time, smiled and said, "Fang Xingjian is done for."
Hoult shook his head. "That's right, he's done for." In his tone, there was a hint of indescribable disappointment.
After reading the letter, Sally looked at James and the others, and said, "What else do you guys have to say?" She spoke with great authority, looking down on James, Hoppes, and the others as if she was the stronger one.
James and Hoppes frowned but did not manage to think of any solution.
However, Governor Devitt remained calm, as if he did not mind the scene he was seeing.
When the Regional Chief saw the way Governor Devitt was behaving, he could not help but ask, "You're just going to watch on like this?"
Devitt waved his hand and said, "It's fine, it's fine." A hint of a smile appeared on the corners of his lips. "Everything is under control."
A trace of doubt flashed past the Regional Chief's eyes. However, he immediately recalled the Second Prince's power to handle information. Then he thought to himself that since Devitt said this, it might be because he had something to rely on. The Regional Chief watched curiously to see how they were going to turn the situation around.
"Damn that Fang Xingjian! He released a sword technique like this for everyone to learn?!"
"To think that it has fatal side effects! His status as a Conferred Knight should be revoked!"
"And there's also the Pantheon Monument and the Killing Techniques Palace... He must have cheated as well."
Almost everyone was feeling fury and disgust at the Rebirth Sword Technique and Fang Xingjian.
Lilia and Ferdinand looked around at the agitated crowd. Their expressions gradually turned grim, and their eyes filled with panic. If this case were to really end like this, then Fang Xingjian would undoubtedly be listed on the wall of shame in historical records, his name left behind in infamy.
James' face trembled a little as he stood up abruptly. His violent martial will swept across the area as if it was something physical, instantly suppressing all the cursing.
Sally looked at Head of Department James coldly and said in an arrogant tone, "Senior James, I know that you're very strong. At the second transition and level 29, there's probably no one here who is a match for you. However, even if you can kill everyone present today, you won't be able to change the way the entire world thinks.
"There's no room for doubt in regards to the Rebirth Sword Technique's problem. If you have no way to prove otherwise, then let Fang Xingjian come forward. Let the creator of the Rebirth Sword Technique answer our questions.
"If he can't answer our questions either, I'll utilize the authority the association has given me and apply for the ban on the dissemination of the Rebirth Sword Technique, as well as on every related experiment on the sword technique being conducted in the country."
James let out a sigh and finally understood the opposing party's plan. They could prove time and time again that there was no problem with the Rebirth Sword Technique and state the number of people who had cultivated it successfully.
However, even if they could bring out 10,000 or even 100,000 people, they would not be able to cover over the fact that 100 people had failed in cultivating it and were even on the verge of death.
'These people really deserve to die.'
As James thought about all these things, he then looked at the empty space which was left for Fang Xingjian, feeling that it was good Fang Xingjian had not come.
Sally slapped the table and bellowed, "Fang Xingjian! Is he scared? Is he feeling guilty? For his own selfish reasons, he has gotten so many youths, so many people who represented the Empire's future, to suffer the consequences. He is a leech that sticks himself onto the Empire's body. A person like this doesn't deserve to be a Conferred Knight."
As Sally said this, she seemed to feel a faint throbbing pain in her shoulders. She shouted out, "I'm asking one more time! Where is Fang Xingjian? If he still doesn't show up, then based on the regulations, I'll deem it that he has given up on this arbitration."
When Sword Saint Sasa heard this, the corners of his lips curled up slightly. 'Fang Xingjian is done for.'
Many people from the spectator stands also stood up and shouted, "Revoke Fang Xingjian's status as a Conferred Knight!"
"Arrest him! Put him on trial!"
"All forms of dissemination of the Rebirth Sword Technique must be banned!"
Sally nodded in agreement. However, just as she was about to speak again, the door opened.,
A few minutes ago, Fang Xingjian and Zhou Xingwen walked together into the municipal government's hall. As they walked through the wide and spacious corridors, their footsteps rang out continuously. Then as they proceeded, a tall figure suddenly appeared to stop them in their tracks.
Armstrong, whose face was covered in scars, stood there smiling. Although his face was covered in scars, he still gave off a very soft and gentle feeling.
"Lord Armstrong!" Zhou Xingwen greeted him respectfully. "Why have you come out here?"
"Obviously to wait for you guys." Armstrong spoke in a stern voice, "Xingjian, why have you arrived so late? The situation inside has turned very grim."
"Oh? Is the arbitration team on the advantage?"
Armstrong pat Fang Xingjian on the shoulders and asked, "Do you have any confidence? If you don't, then you should leave now."
'What?!' Zhou Xingwen was astonished. Was the situation in the arbitration already so grim?
Fang Xingjian smiled and said, "There's no way that I'll lose."
Seeing how confident Fang Xingjian was, Armstrong said in a light voice, "Is that the case?" Suddenly, an extremely eerie and vicious information flow containing an extremely malicious intent flowed from Armstrong's palms and into Fang Xingjian's head.
As a level 29 Conferred Knight, Armstrong had personally activated the Killing technique-Small Puppet Technique. Its attack was extremely secretive, and even the Heavenly Abyss Annihilation Armor was unable to detect it, nor did it show any reactions.
'The Small Puppet Technique is one of the most secretive techniques in the Ancient Path of Hell. Those who know of it call it the most vicious Killing technique in history.' Armstrong looked at Fang Xingjian, who was showing no reactions, and a hint of contempt flashed in his eyes.
As one of the First Prince's most secretive clones, he controlled the power which represented the soul in the 36 Hell's Maps. It was also one of the 36 powers in hell.
When coupled together with the Small Puppet Technique, even a level 29 Conferred Knight could be affected by it slightly, let alone Fang Xingjian. It was just like how Heaven-Shaking Sword Potter had been controlled and was now unable to even choose between life and death. Currently, Potter was still lying on a hospital bed in a comatose state.
Of course, this Killing technique would only be effective if it was performed consecutively and the distance must not exceed 10 meters. Most importantly, the technique could only be used to control the physical body and was incapable of controlling the person's heart and memories. Therefore, it could not be used to help the First Prince obtain the signatures for the Hell's Maps.
Armstrong looked at Fang Xingjian and asked, "Oh? Where are you getting the confidence from? Why don't you share it with me so that I can provide some advice?"
"There's no need for that. You'll know after I enter the hall and say it out loud."
Fang Xingjian took one step forward and was about to pass by Armstrong's body when the latter slapped down on his shoulder, activating the Small Puppet Technique. As the technique worked together with the lurking information flow from earlier, an extremely malicious information current headed for Fang Xingjian's consciousness.
"I think it's better if you were to say it now."
A strange gleam flashed in Armstrong's eyes, and his words had a mysterious allure to it.
However, Fang Xingjian merely blinked as if he was looking at an idiot. Simultaneously, the letter placed close to his chest suddenly glowed brightly.
Armstrong's expression turned grim, and he decided to retreat. However, he realized then that he was unable to move.
