That lady nodded toward Maria's father arrogantly, while her eyes were still throwing sideway glances at Fang Xingjian. She said, "Young man, you shouldn't be ignorant of how big the world is just because you have a little strength. Who is your Master? I'm going to help him teach you a good lesson today so that you won't be spouting rubbish like this in the future. You might end up not even knowing how you died."

Everyone present looked at Mistress Crystal with great respect in their eyes. However, when they looked at Fang Xingjian, they secretly felt pity for him. To boast at the foot of the mountain where the Myriad Stars Palace was located and then get caught in the act by a second generation disciple... He was really extremely unlucky.

The generation count in the Myriad Stars Palace was constantly being changed. Currently, the first generation disciples referred to the Myriad Stars Palace's Astral Ancestor who was a divine level expert, as well as those of his generation. The second generation disciples were then people like Crystal.

Furthermore, Crystal was the Astral Ancestor's direct disciple. Thinking of how an important character like this had personally come to receive a female disciple who had yet to join the sect, everyone immediately turned their gaze to the inconspicuous Maria. It seemed that this girl might become an important character in the Myriad Stars Palace in the future.

That aristocratic young master also smirked inwardly, shaking his head as he felt great pity for Fang Xingjian's poor luck. 'What a pitiful guy. For you to dare to express your wish to accept a future female disciple of the Myriad Stars Palace as your own student in front of their doors... I don't know if you're ignorant or foolish.

'And it just so happened that Crystal came over. This old hag is known for her violent temper. This guy will have to shed a layer of his skin even if he doesn't end up dead.'

Everyone shook their head and sighed. The middle-aged and elderly people had already planned to share the story with the younger ones in their family after they returned. This would serve as a warning for them to be extremely careful when they were outside. Otherwise, they might end up in the same plight as this young man. For him to be offending the Myriad Stars Palace just because of a single word was a real-life unfortunate example.

Fang Xingjian threw Crystal a glance and shook his head. "Not even a Demigod at such an old age... It seems that you haven't learned many abilities, yet you've learned quite a bit of trashy regulations."

Crystal's eyes popped opened abruptly. She was like an enraged lion as her aura soared up. Everyone present could sense the gushing killing aura.

Maria's father grimaced. 'Is this kid trying to court death? To think that he would dare to offend a level 29 expert like this? Damn it. We must explain it to the Mistress later so that she won't turn her anger onto Maria, affecting her future.'

"Hmm?" Fang Xingjian threw Crystal a cold glance.

Crystal had just summoned up a violent aura when one of Fang Xingjian's palms had already pressed down on her shoulder. With an explosive boom, the female Knight, who had been carrying herself with a mighty air, was now like a toy. Kneeling down on the ground, her whole body felt weak.

Her face flushed red, and the air currents around her seethed. It was as if she wanted to struggle to get up to her feet.

Simultaneously, Fang Xingjian's voice rang softly next to her ears, "If you're unconvinced, then you can continue to kneel until you accept it."

Instantly, the ground under Crystal's kneecaps continued to shatter inch by inch. She sank three inches into the ground. It was as if a mountain was pressing down on her body. She knelt before Fang Xingjian with forces surging throughout her body. However, Crystal was still unable to move at all. Her eyes were flushed red with agitation, but she was unable to even move her muscles.

She felt as if her body seemed to have been separated from her consciousness and that she could only kneel there quietly.

As the Myriad Stars Palace's second generation disciple, Crystal had always been used to throwing her weight around arrogantly in the Xingwu Region. When had she ever been forced down to her knees?

A humiliation of such a degree was as if her heart had been pieced by a blade. She glared at Fang Xingjian, wanting to speak, yet she discovered that she was unable to spout even a single word. Crystal could only continue to glare at Fang Xingjian, as if wanting to etch Fang Xingjian's appearance deeply into her mind.

However, Fang Xingjian paid no heed to her at all. He did not even bother to remember her name or appearance.

His seemingly casual actions caused everyone around them to be overwhelmed and astonished. Although they were slightly taken aback by Fang Xingjian's display of power, the thing that astonished them even more was that he had assaulted and even humiliated a second generation disciple of the Myriad Stars Palace.

"This guy is crazy!"

"To think that he would dare to assault someone from the Myriad Stars Palace here!"

"This b*stard! If the Old Ancestor were to press charges, even we might have to suffer from the consequences."

Everyone looked at Fang Xingjian, stricken with horror and infuriated. They felt that they were truly unlucky to be implicated into this catastrophe.

However, Fang Xingjian did not care what these people thought. He turned and headed up the Xingwang Mountain. Lan Yue followed after Fang Xingjian like a docile attendant.

It was only now that the young master who had mocked Fang Xingjian earlier now felt himself soaked in cold sweat. Thankfully, Fang Xingjian had not bothered to do anything to the young master. Otherwise, with the young master not even being at the second transition, he would have been killed with just a slap.

However, at the thought of how Fang Xingjian and Lan Yue had disregarded him, he felt aggrieved and infuriated.

Meanwhile, everyone else had gone up to Crystal, wanting to help her up.

"Mistress Crystal, let us help you up."

"It's all the fault of that b*stard. Mistress, please don't put the blame on us. None of us know him."

However, no matter which of them went up and no matter how much force they exerted, they were completely unable to move Crystal. Fang Xingjian had left a stream of deathly sword intent on her, making it as if a Mountain Tai was pressing down on her. It was not a power they could go up against.

Just then, a fatty rushed over. His head was covered in sweat as he asked, "What should we do now? Should we chase after him to take a look?"

"What's there to look at? That guy is an expert as well. What if they hurt us if they were to get into a fight?"

"Do you guys really think that everything will be fine if you just wait here?" Maria's father asked as he looked at the unbudging Crystal with a grim countenance. Then he said coldly, "Maria, follow me to stop that guy. We mustn't let him humiliate the Myriad Stars Palace."

With that, he pulled Maria with him to give chase.

A few of the others was stunned for a moment. Some of them got to their senses and also gave chase. There were also a few who shouted, "We'll stay here and take care of Mistress Crystal!"

The aristocratic young master frowned and thought, 'That's right, all of us are considered the Myriad Stars Palace's external influences. It's one thing for us to be able to put up a fight, but it's another to not even try. That guy is doomed to be heading up the Myriad Stars Palace. No matter what, we must give chase and put up a pretense.

'Otherwise, if they blame us for not doing a good job and for harboring ill intentions, we would be in great trouble.'

Therefore, the young master's eyes twirled a little before he gave chase after Fang Xingjian. 'Hmph, hmph. For you to be daring to create trouble at the Myriad Stars Palace... I shall see how you're going to die.'

Fang Xingjian and Lan Yue walked slowly up he mountainous path. Both of them could sense the crowd who were following a few hundred meters behind them. However, neither Fang Xingjian nor Lan Yue paid them any heed.

Lan Yue was just waiting to watch a good show, while Fang Xingjian had devoted half of his attention into continuing his self-cultivation in his sword arts. Neither of them could be bothered with what those people were thinking.
