The Thunder Monarch turned back to see a black dot abruptly appearing in midair. Then he blinked, and the black dot had already become Fang Xingjian, appearing over ten kilometers behind him.

With an astonished gasp, the Thunder Monarch shot out over 100 laser beams immediately, hitting Fang Xingjian. Simultaneously, several tens of small-scaled missiles shot out toward Fang Xingjian.

However, with a horizontal slash of sword light that Fang Xingjian sent out, all the laser beams only heated up his body for less than one-hundredth of a second. Then the laser beams were split into two by the many streams sword light. The laser beams reflected onto the ground, creating many huge trenches.

Simultaneously, Fang Xingjian's body continued to accelerate. Millions of sword ripples were sent sweeping out, and all the small-scaled missiles were crushed. Fang Xingjian arrived less than 100 meters away from the Thunder Monarch.

The Thunder Monarch's face was pale, but he was a Divine level expert after all. Although he was terrified of Fang Xingjian's power, it did not affect his performance in the battle at all.

Scorching white light burst out from his body. Streams of circular lightning gushed forth and turned into plasma that was several hundred thousand degrees celsius, encompassing his entire body.

Layer and layers of plasma engulfed his body completely, then after abruptly shrinking by a layer, it released a glob of plasma, shooting it toward Fang Xingjian.

At this moment, the damaging prowess that the Thunder Monarch displayed could be said to be comparable to that of a plasma cannon of the starships from legends. Any blast from the plasma cannon would be sufficient to penetrate any armor on Earth.

Its ability to instantly unleash a great destructive force within an area could even be comparable to that of a nuclear missile.

Yet when this sort of plasma blast shot out toward him, Fang Xingjian did not even give it a second thought and slashed out with his sword again, activating the Light Pursuit. In that instant, over one million sword attacks were unleashed, wiping out the plasma globs and the liquid plasma they held.

However, due to this, Fang Xingjian's speed slowed down by a notch, and the Thunder Monarch managed to increase the distance between them once again.

The two of them continued on like this, with one chasing and the other fleeing. Wherever they passed by, there would be thunderous sounds as laser beams, sword ripples, and shots from plasma cannons crashed into the ground. Many mountains were destroyed, and many lakes evaporated.

The speeds of the two people were really too fast. With one of them giving chase while the other fled, they had already crossed Africa and arrived at Asia in slightly over ten seconds.

Compared to the battle against the Despot, in this battle between Fang Xingjian and the Thunder Monarch, the damaging powers got increasingly weaker. However, the impacted area got increasingly larger due to their high mobility.

...

"They're here, they're here. They've passed through the borders."

In central Eurasia, the command post of the air force of a certain country was in a state of chaos.

"Launch out all the homing missiles we have. Bring down that Fang Xingjian!"

"We can't. They're too fast."

"Our homing missiles aren't able to catch up at all."

"Damn it! The aftermath of their attacks destroyed the entire Royal Air Force station in Essex."

"Where are they? Where are they right now?"

"They're gone... They... have already passed by our country."

...

At the top of the Himalayas, three mountain climbers were slowly headed toward the peak.

However, at the next moment, two black lines cut across the skies, appearing before them and then vanishing.

Under the trio's astonished gazes, rumbling sounds of thunder rang out and several hundred light pillars cut across the horizon. There were also countless invisible sword ripples slashing out on the mountain peaks. The entire Mount Everest had over 100 meters of its slopes vaporized.

A mountain climber looked at the gushing avalanche and bellowed, "Run!"

At the foot of the mountain, countless people came out from their cars, houses, and hotels. With mouths agape, they looked upon this scene which made it seem as though the world was coming to an end. They saw that endless amounts of snow were being blasted into the sky and then turning into a raging snowstorm under the impact from the strong gales. Avalanches and explosions were encompassing the entire Himalayan range at a rapid speed.

...

"They've entered our borders!"

"Where are they?"

"Northwest Province... No... No... Their speed are too fast... They've already arrived at the Central Province..."

"What kind of joke is that?! What happened to the Skynet? What about the anti-missile system?"

"They can't catch up to them!"

In the joint command post of Xin Country and the Earth's Federation, several hundred military officers were in a busy and chaotic state.

A commander looked at the two light spots that were traveling at a rapid speed and mumbled, "This is... The true destructive power of Divine level experts? It hasn't even been a minute and they've already crossed all of Eurasia, destroyed countless mountain ranges, cities and military, and now, they're returning just like that?"

In this moment, a feeling of dejection, that was beyond what anyone had felt before, filled up the hearts of everyone present. Confronted with such power... mobility... and destructive force... How on earth could they possibly do anything?

Just then, an adjutant went up to the commander and said, "Sir, the chairman of the Federation has given the approval for you to activate nuclear missiles at the crucial moment. We mustn't let Demonic City be destroyed by their hands. We must stop them before they arrive!"

In the sky, 10,000 meters above the land.

The Thunder Monarch and Fang Xingjian had already arrived at the center of Xin Country in the blink of an eye. They had only engaged in battle for less than a minute, yet the Thunder Monarch already felt extremely exhausted. Regardless of whether they were laser beams, missiles, plasma cannons... or even if he attacked with poison and lightning... All his attacks would be slashed down by this lunatic before him. The Thunder Monarch really felt as if he was at his wits end.

However, just then, three intercontinental ballistic missiles, which were over ten meters long, flew toward them.

The intercontinental ballistic missiles were slower than Fang Xingjian and the Thunder Monarch. However, the missiles were coming from the opposite direction, so the amount of time it took for the two sides to meet depended on the combined traveling speed of both sides. Therefore, the missiles met up with the two people in the blink of an eye.

Boom!

In a mere couple of seconds, the pressure at the center of the nuclear explosion was several billion times stronger than it used to be. All the atoms in the air were robbed of their electrons, forming high temperature and high pressure plasma bodies. X-rays, beta rays, alpha rays... All sorts of radiation burst forth.

A fireball with a diameter of over 50 kilometers was formed in midair, and it was as if it was a second sun in the sky.

At this moment, within a range of over 1,000 kilometers, almost all of Xin Country could witness this circle of light in the sky

Meanwhile, in the very middle of the shock waves, Tyrant, who was on the surface of Fang Xingjian's skin, received the first impact. Then, just like an onion which was slowly peeled away in layers, over 70% of Fang Xingjian's body was vaporized within a millisecond. The high temperatures and high pressure plasma shock waves were mixed with various radiations as they hit against Fang Xingjian's body.

In this moment, Fang Xingjian only felt as if every bit of flesh on his body was dying, and every single cell was withering.

If he did not show any resistance, his body would really turn into powder within the next one-hundredth of a second.

However, although his physical body, which had a material structure, was dying... the things which formed it-things which were even smaller than physical particles-underwent a different transformation.

His martial will was now so strong that it could solely exist for one day and one night even if his body were to fully die. In this process where Fang Xingjian's body was incessantly being diminished, he could feel that the 1.08 billion physical particles in his body were changing.

He could sense that, under the impact from the nuclear explosions, the physical particles in his body were exploding one after another. They were just like candles in his body, which was originally dark to begin with, getting lit up by the impact of the nuclear explosion. It was as if countless worlds were being shattered in Fang Xingjian's body.

Under the impact of the nuclear explosion, over 100 physical particles were seething and raring to go.
