Chapter 413: Attaining Divine Level
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
Through his Heaven's Perception, when Hildebrand saw that Fang Xingjian left without showing any reaction, he frowned slightly.
'Not in the least concerned? Confident? Or is he just a fool?'
Peter followed behind Hildebrand and said, "Lord, do you think that he'll really be stirring up trouble?"
As if he had complete control over the entire situation, Hildebrand spoke unperturbedly, "It's hard to say. However, youngsters are impulsive and easily infuriated, especially a genius like him who thinks too highly of himself. It's normal for there to be some trouble. I'm considered to have done my part as a senior by gifting him with those words earlier."
Hildebrand then smiled and added, "The reason he's here is naturally to look for the archbishop. I'll wait for you at the bar counter outside. Go and check out the situation. If he really does wreak havoc, then don't blame me for not holding back."
Upon meeting the archbishop and the Knight of the Rising Sun, Fang Xingjian went straight to the point, "I've completed it."
"What?" Gardner, the Knight of the Rising Sun, asked puzzledly, "What have you completed?"
"I've completed the appraisals for all of the 1,000 sets of sword techniques." Fang Xingjian rubbed the middle of his forehead. Right now, numerous sword arts material were still churning around in his mind. After he submitted the documents, he planned to enter seclusion for a few days to process all the information and turn them completely into a part of his sword arts.
Hearing what Fang Xingjian said, the Knight of the Rising Sun's expression turned grim as he said, "Fang Xingjian, stop spouting rubbish. This joke isn't funny."
Peter, who was using his Heaven's Perception to look through the door's gap, also smiled coldly when he heard Fang Xingjian's words. He felt that Fang Xingjian must have turned into a fool.
However, Fang Xingjian continued to look straight at the archbishop and Gardner, saying, "I don't joke about such things. When I say that I've completed it, it means that I've completed it. I've brought along all the appraisal details together with me today."
Gardner frowned as he looked at Fang Xingjian as if he were looking at a lunatic.
"That's a total of 1,000 sword techniques. Even if you learn fast, appraising them and testing through all the statistics... Do you know how much time it would take?" Gardner continued to say, "Fang Xingjian, I know you learn fast and your speed is fast. But this speed and the speed of research are two different things altogether.
"No matter how fast you are, is it possible for you to be as fast when you appraise and write? Are you still able to be as fast when you test out the temperatures, explosive effect, prowess of light rays, and the transmission of energy?
"You can be the be the fastest when you run, but how are you able to be just as fast during the appraisal process and when you move your fingers to undergo a small range of movements?"
Gardner pointed out the crux of the problem. Even if Knights who excelled in high-speed could move fast when they dashed and when they performed Killing techniques, it did not mean that they could also do various things just as fast, including writing, eating, drinking, and reading. This was impossible.
Without Fang Xingjian's talent, Boundaries Negation to negate other conditions to move at the fastest speed, and the Prodigious Demolition Sword Physique to wipe out the air, of course, it would be impossible. Therefore, Fang Xingjian nodded.
Gardner smiled and said, "Look at you boast."
Just then, the archbishop stopped Gardner from continuing and looked at Fang Xingjian. The archbishop said, "You said that you've brought the appraisal documents. Where are they?"
"They're outside." Fang Xingjian tilted his head to the side and said, "But if I give all 1,000 sets to you at one go, you're able to pay me the 15 million gold at once as well, right?"
"If you deliver the goods, of course, we'll give you the money." The archbishop stood up and said, "Then let's go take a look."
Gardner frowned as he looked at Fang Xingjian suspiciously. 'Could it be that he had really completed them? But... how on earth did he do that?'
Hildebrand was seated at the bar counter, drinking by himself. In merely over ten minutes, he had already rejected the invitation of three beauties.
As the eldest son of the first wife in one of the Empire's wealthy and influential clans, Hildebrand had lived a life different from others ever since birth.
Hildebrand was trained in martial arts, politics, trade, arts, assessing interests, and many more skills. He had been able to pick up each of them easily, and by the age of 15, his father had already dismissed all of his home tutors and started teaching him the path of a Knight personally.
Seven years later, Hildebrand had participated in the Regional Selection, clinching first position. He became a representative of the younger generation in the Great Western Region.
Eight years later, he became a level 29 Conferred Knight. From then on, he was clear about the meaning of his life.
Wealth, power, status, reputation... he had already enjoyed all of them before.
He had also realized that he did not hold much interest in these. To him, these were but means for him to achieve many goals.
Martial arts was the only thing which was worth him spending his entire life to study.
'Become a Divine level expert!'
Unknowingly, this thought had started to fill up Hildebrand's mind completely, turning into the goal he frantically chased.
He spent over 18 hours cultivating daily, consuming all sorts of heavenly and earthly treasures as well as ferocious beasts. He had also received the meticulous guidance from his father, and even from his grandfather who was the previous Governor of the Beize Continent.
His abilities had improved in leaps and bounds, making him come to an understanding on some things.
Although his talent was amazing and he was already considered a genius amongst geniuses, there was no lack of geniuses on the path of martial arts.
Which person who could become a Knight was not a genius? Which person who could become a Conferred Knight was not a genius amongst geniuses?
However, there were different tiers of geniuses. Across history, those who could become Divine level existences would all be equipped with various terms which would make ordinary people feel desperate.
Therefore, Hildebrand understood that with his talent, it was impossible for him to attain the Divine level just by immersing in hard work by himself behind closed doors.
Although this was a disappointing result, it also sent Hildebrand down a brand new direction.
Since he could not rely on his own talent, then he could only gather resources. Be it money, Divine Equipment, or Divine level experts' legacies... as long as they were things which could aid him to become a Divine level expert, he would gather them all.
Integrating and seizing resources... As long as they could help them to attain Divine level, anything worked.
Therefore, when he came across the Martial Techniques Grading Plan this time around, Hildebrand immediately took action.
He drank another cup of alcohol, and the details of the project continued to churn in his mind as he checked to see if there were any other aspects which he had overlooked.
Just then, a beautiful lady, who wore a beautiful dress and had fiery red short hair, swung her hips and walked up to him like a little demoness.
Hildebrand said out of habit, "I'm sorry, I'm waiting for someone."
"Isn't the person you're waiting for, me?" The little red-haired demoness smiled, exuding an astonishing charm through her red lips.
As she looked at Hildebrand who seemed to have gone into a daze, the little red-haired demoness said, "I'm Maria, a reporter from the Central Times."
Hildebrand nodded. Practically right at the moment when the Second Prince had just created the Central Times, Hildebrand had already been able to see its value clearly.
Therefore, this time around, in order to apply pressure from the public onto Fang Xingjian, Hildebrand had even contacted a reporter. However, he had not expected the reporter to be really well-informed and capable of finding her way here.
