 Chapter 705: Beaten to Death

Translator: Yukidaruma Translations Editor: Yukidaruma Translations

The first half of the Fifth Prince's life could be said to be a bumpy road. Due to his lack of aptitude and interest in martial arts, the Fifth Prince's influence and reputation had always been the weakest.

However, everything changed after he met the Chaos Witch.

Under the Chaos Witch's guidance, not only did he obtain the world's top fist talent, he also had many fortunate encounters and his cultivation kept on improving. He got his hands on all sorts of amazing arts and techniques, and he advanced triumphantly on a smooth sailing path. After subduing countless experts and snatching countless secret manuals and resources, he had even managed to gain a Four-Eyed Heavenly Winged Beast and a Divine Weapon that belonged to the Divine Sun Emperor.

In a short few years, he could be said to be riding on the crest of success waiting to attain the Divine level. After which, he would then surpass the First Prince, unify the Empire, and inherit the Ancient Path of Hell. He even wanted to dominate over the army, unify the world, and create a flourishing dynasty that would last for 1,000 or even 10,000 years.

However, after meeting Fang Xingjian, all these dreams of his had instantly shattered.

Right when he had been suppressing the Eastern Sand Region's Wang Clan and wanting to snatch the Mountainous Sea Dynasty's manuals and Panwu Heavenly Raiment, his encounter with Fang Xingjian had been his first encounter with failure during the last few years.

The Fifth Prince had been like a majestic eagle soaring high up in the sky. However, he was then violently grabbed down by Fang Xingjian and smashed into the muds, suffering a great humiliation he had never encountered before.

Thereafter, he met Tian Yi. After cultivating the mysterious arts and obtaining the Divine Armor refined from the Four-Eyed Heavenly Winged Beast, he had then immediately headed back to seek revenge only to be defeated by Fang Xingjian again. He ended up losing even his physical body.

After the two failures, he then devoted hard work to his cultivation, lying low and holding it in while waiting for an opportunity for revenge. With the Fist Emperor's and Tian Yi's help, he kept on thinking about surpassing Fang Xingjian. However, he later got to know that Fang Xingjian had killed the Undying Xia, crippled the First Prince, suppressed the Full Moon Shrine and Myriad Stars Palace. This had caused him to feel very dejected, and he had thought that he would no longer have any chance to seek revenge.

This was until he met Shang.

'It was only after meeting that True Lord Qingshan that I realised just how big the world is and that there are endless experts out there. What does a small Empire matter? Only the Mage Association and the Church of Universal Truth are the real experts. And they, when compared to the evil gods beyond the heavens as well as the impending onslaughts, are nothing as well. There are always stronger people out there, and my foresight has been placed on what's beyond that endless outer space and universe.

Right now, although the Fifth Prince's eyes still contained killing intent, hatred, and fury when he looked at Fang Xingjian, he was not as obstinate as he had been in the past.

'Fang Xingjian is merely a setback in my life. My vision isn't something that he is able to know of.'

It was clear that Shang had not really shared with the Fifth Prince about Fang Xingjian's standing. They had merely given the Fifth Prince a lot of benefits in the cooperation with the royal family.

The Fifth Prince did not take action immediately but instead, suppressed the killing intent, hatred, and fury in his heart. He looked at Fang Xingjian with a gaze like a child teasing an ant, hooking his finger in an upward direction toward Fang Xingjian as he said, "Fang Xingjian, I can't wait to kill you immediately, but it's really too boring to kill you straight away. You better make the first move. Otherwise, you might not have a chance to take action if I make the move."

Fang Xingjian's martial will scanned the Fourth Prince, Tyrant, and Philip. After ensuring that their lives were not at risk, he spoke to them through information currents, "You guys can leave first. Help me protect the academy and the city down there so that they won't get implicated by the attacks."

The Fourth Prince nodded and spoke with a grim countenance, "Xingjian, you must be careful. The armor that Fifth Brother has is too strange. Not only is it able to absorb all sorts of attacks, but it seems to be able to draw out geomagnetic force to strengthen itself."

Tyrant also communicated with Fang Xingjian through information currents, "This armor that he has on him seems to be very similar to Earth's technology in making weapons. It's called nanotechnology equipment and seems to also be activated by nuclear energy. However, it is many times more remarkable. You better be careful."

Tyrant had been to Earth with Fang Xingjian before and thus knew of the Earthlings' technology and civilization. When he first saw the nanotechnology equipment, he thought that it had been invented by the people from Earth. However, it was only after fighting that he realized its prowess far surpassed that of Earth's technology.

Fang Xingjian nodded. As his gaze swept by the Fifth Prince, martial will that could go deep down to the level of ether particles scanned through the nanotechnology armor completely.

'Is it really a product of technology? Its structure isn't even made of physical particles but molecules and atoms?' Fang Xingjian raised his brows. He had wreaked havoc with the Earth's Federation previously and seen almost all of Earth's greatest technological equipment there had been back then. However, he had not seen any nanotechnology armor before. Where did this thing come from?

Behind Fang Xingjian, the Fourth Prince slowly flew down toward the ground. Philip and Tyrant went through great difficulty only to form a state that was like a lump of rubber paste. They kept on regenerating but were still unable to take on human forms. However, although their martial wills were severely damaged, they had regained their mobility. In the blink of an eye, they landed onto the ground.

Simultaneously, the Fifth Prince's voice also rang into Fang Xingjian's ears.

Hearing the Fifth Prince's words, the corner of Fang Xingjian's lips curled up slightly. He looked at his fist and then said to the Fifth Prince, "Letting me make the first move? But if I punch out, you may die."

"Hahahaha." The Fifth Prince was extremely confident in the nanotechnology armor. "Fang Xingjian, you don't know what you're up against."

Putting aside the nanotechnology armor he was wearing, his body had also been forged from the 10,000-year ice crystal which the Fist Emperor had gathered himself. His body could almost be a match for a level 31 Divine Remains Equipment. So how could he possibly believe Fang Xingjian's words?

Fang Xingjian said while smiling coldly, "You are the one who doesn't know what you're up against."

As they spoke, Fang Xingjian's body seemed to tremble a little, and his entire palm was enveloped in darkness.

After reaching tier three of the Divine level, his martial will and physical body had merged into one, and there were no longer any difference between the two. Right now, in terms of both strength and toughness, Fang Xingjian's physical body far surpassed an ordinary person's imagination.

After his body shook a little, he instantly shattered, moved at light speed right up to where the Fifth Prince was, and then regenerated. He followed up with a punch, and the light rays within a range of 1,000 meters were bent, completely encompassed by darkness.

Unable to see, hear, or sense anything, it was as if even time and space had disappeared.

With this punch from Fang Xingjian, the Fifth Prince felt as if he had returned to the microscopic world when he had been attempting to strive for the Divine level. Time and space had lost their meaning, and his five senses had left him.

Space continued to distort under Fang Xingjian's violence, and even light waves, magnetic waves, and radiations had become a mess. All of the means of observation that a human possessed had lost their meaning, so how could any kind of defense work?

When the darkness disappeared at the next moment, the Fifth Prince felt as if his body had been struck by an impact of a great magnitude 18 earthquake. Every single cell and physical particle in his body trembled wildly like they were going to breakdown and disintegrate in an instant.
