Chapter 691: Proceeding To
Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations
Fang Xingjian did not look at him, but turned to Audrey and asked, "Are there any problems with what he said?"
Audrey and the others shook their heads as they looked at Fang Xingjian, feeling agitated. The dejection they had been feeling for the past few days was all swept away. Looking at the middle-aged man that Fang Xingjian had grabbed, all of them wore a joyful expression.
Seeing that everyone was shaking their heads, Fang Xingjian threw a glance at the middle-aged Mage. The latter was instantly slashed by countless sword intents into fragments, regenerated, slashed into pieces again, regenerated again, and then slashed into pieces again.
After three consecutive times of this, the middle-aged Mage started screaming in agony. Unable to regenerate anymore, he died for good.
Fang Xingjian looked at the Holy Light Clan's quarters and nonchalantly said, "Come on, let's head back to the Holy Light Clan."
Just then, Young Master Meng, who had been heavily injured, finished regenerating. Hearing Fang Xingjian's words, he immediately advised, "Wait a moment. That Gold Robed Mage by the name of Devin is probably still in the valleys. It'd be too risky for us to head there just like that."
"That's right," Xingxing`er spoke up as well. "Xingjian, your sword arts are top notch and your abilities are unrivalled. However, that Devin guy is also very strong. Moreover, black magic is more powerful than the path of the Knights. It's too dangerous to head there just like that. It's better for us to get some helpers, do some preparation before..."
They wanted to persuade Fang Xingjian. After all, they had witnessed the capabilities of both Devin and Fang Xingjian. Although Fang Xingjian was extremely powerful, with a battle prowess that allowed him to suppress the seven great clans single-handedly, it still seemed a little bit weaker when compared to the black magic which Devin had displayed when he had defeated Jacob.
Therefore, in their opinion, the safest way was still to get a few helpers. Fang Xingjian was an expert in the Second Prince's faction and rumors had it that he was on good terms with the Myriad Stars Palace and Prince Philip as well. It could not be hard for him to get the help of one or two Divine level experts.
However, after hearing these, Fang Xingjian still shook his head, replying, "Long-winded."
As he spoke, he lifted up both his hands and everyone was locked on by his sword intents. In that instant, they soared into the air and under the push from Fang Xingjian's sword intents, they flew in the direction of the Holy Light Clan.
Right now, countless people from the Holy Light Clan were busy in the manor's ruins. They kept on digging through the ruins, moving money, jewelleries, gemstones, heavenly and earthly treasures, as well as all medicinal herbs for cultivation. Carts of wealth belonging to the Holy Light Clan were being moved out.
The Holy Light Clan had accumulated treasures for several hundred years and their wealth could be said to match that of a country. Gathered together like they were, the carts formed long lines, making it look like rows of ants moving from their nest.
In the outer area of the manor's ruins, over 100 warriors from the seven great clans were pierced into wooden rods starting from their tailbones, their bodies speared as the tips poked out of their mouths. The rods were pierced into the ground, making them look like numerous human skewers.
These warriors had all been tortured to death after having resisted the Gold Robed Mages.
Looking at the corpses on the wooden stakes, the group of warriors who were digging through the ruins and moving the treasures all wore terrified and despairing expressions.
Young Master Long, who had previously been high-spirited, was now digging through the fragmented rocks on the ground and searching for the Holy Light Clan's precious treasures while throwing careful glances toward the sky.
A shorty with a height of about 1.5 meters was standing in the sky above the manor, wearing a golden robe. Occasionally, a hint of golden electricity would crackle between his eyes.
Behind him, there were two middle-aged Gold Robed Mages, one of them with a dark complexion, the other with a fair complexion. Although they were both taller than the shorty, neither dared to stand taller than him.
Young Master Long clenched his fists. It was that shorty Devin who had come to the mountains a few days ago, defeated Jacob in a single move and suppressed the seven great clans, massacring the several hundred warriors who had resisted. He had displayed a great might, so no one dared to resist him.
Next to him, Young Master Lei pat Young Master Long on the shoulder and spoke to him through information currents, "Don't look there. He might end up getting angry."
Young Master Long could not accept it and said, "I hadn't expected that despite how our seven great clans have been unhindered in the Empire for over 100 years, we would end up in this state today."
Young Master Lei shook his head, "Black magic is far too powerful. Probably only the Church of Universal Truth would be able to go up against the Mage Association."
However, a figure flashed in Young Master Long's eyes, "If Fang Xingjian was still around..."
"Don't be foolish." Young Master Lei smiled bitterly and said, "If he was a match for them, he would have taken action long ago. Moreover, Audrey said that he went to strive for the Nine-Tiered Heavens but has disappeared for an entire month. He probably lost himself in the Nine-Tiered Heavens and died.
"Moreover, even if he were to come, what has he got to fight Devin? What has he got to fight the Mage Association?
"Probably even His Majesty the King wouldn't dare to fight the Mage Association."
Thinking of this, both of them sighed heavily.
Just then, an exploding sound rang out in the sky. Young Master Ye, previously one of the Four Gentlemen, flew toward Devin's spot in the sky.
Seeing Young Master Ye, a hint of fury appeared on the faces of both Young Master Long and Young Master Lei. However, they forcibly held it in, seemingly afraid that Devin, far in the sky, would find out.
Young Master Ye flew next to Devin and said with great respect, "Sir, over 80% of the Holy Light Clan's treasure store has been excavated. 50% has been moved back to the Sun City.
"Jacob has also been escorted to the Sun City and is currently being taken into custody by Lord Shi Shou 1 ."
The Sun City was the closest city to the Northern Ice Region. Clearly, they had dug out most of the wealth belonging to the Holy Light Clan over the past few days and had moved them out.
Even the head of the Holy Light Clan, Jacob, who was a tier one Divine level expert, had been detained and taken there.
"With Senior Shi Shou keeping his eye on Jacob, there should be no problem. A Divine level expert like him is considered rare material." Devin nodded slightly then asked, "What about Fang Xingjian? Haven't we found him yet?"
Young Master Ye said carefully, "We still haven't found Fang Xingjian. He either failed in striving for the Nine-Tiered Heavens or is fearful of your powers and escaped."
Devin shook his head, "Before I came to the Empire, I had heard that Fang Xingjian was the strongest expert among those of the Empire's younger generation and I wanted to spar with him. It's a pity. By the looks of it, the path of the Knight is still a bit weaker when compared to black magic..."
Another fair-skinned Gold Robed Mage said, "Sir, the higher-ups are urging us to quickly head back. Many unfamiliar faces have appeared in the palace, but each of them have powerful abilities. Lord Mage King is asking us to go investigate."
"The royal clan?" Devin said calmly, "Other than Alexander and the Abyss Lord, there aren't any other significant characters in the royal family. If it isn't because of Alexander's outstanding talent, hmph, what right would the Krieg royal family have to work together with us?"
Next to them, Young Master Ye had maintained a submissive pose from the very beginning, bowing slightly and not daring to show any changes to his respectful expression.
Just then, over ten shadows cut across the air and flew toward the manor's ruins.
Devin frowned slightly, "Who are they?"
Young Master Ye looked silently toward the group of people flying over. When he saw Fang Xingjian, who was in the lead, he stood stunned for a moment before saying, "It's Fang Xingjian!"
Devin wore a slightly amused expression. He looked at Fang Xingjian and asked, "Oh? That guy is Fang Xingjian?"
Audrey and Xingxing`er, who were behind Fang Xingjian, had eyes filled with anxiety. Seeing Devin's gaze turning into their direction, they shivered, a small amount of horror in their gazes. During this period of time, they had fully witnessed Devin's brutality.
If it was not for the Holy Light Clan's head, Jacob, having put his life on the line, they would not have been able to escape. However, they had not expected that not only did Fang Xingjian pay no heed to their objections, he had even brought them over. Thinking of this, there was blame in their eyes as they looked at Fang Xingjian.
Even Audrey sighed slightly, not wishing to go up against the Mage Association.
