 Chapter 721: Warding Off

From up in the sky, Fang Xingjian lashed down with the Thunder Calamity in his hand. It was as if the heavens were enraged, sending down great thunderbolts down to wipe out the mortal world. An extremely sharp All-Conquering sword intent tore through the atmosphere, and in the blink of an eye, it slashed onto the desert.

In an instant, the desert was split into two, and a huge valley over ten kilometers long was produced, sliced opened by an extremely sharp All-Conquering sword intent as if it were butter.

The valley cracked down to a depth of over 500 meters, revealing the Fifth Prince and the others who were in the karst cave. Simultaneously, the All-Conquering did not stop and continued to slash out toward the Fifth Prince.

With this one sword attack, the earth cracked and the earth's crust exploded. Then the slash continued heading toward the Fifth Prince. Even till now, neither the Fifth Prince nor Lady Velia had managed to react.

However, amongst the people present, there was a person with Sudden Inspiration to sense dangers. Almost just as Fang Xingjian had appeared, that person had already reacted and turned into a stream of sparks, dashing up to stand before the Fifth Prince.

It was the Sand Country's dictator, a tier five Divine level expert-the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch.

Once they reached the tier three of the Divine level, experts would be capable of integrating their physical bodies and will into one, forming an almost indestructible and unique conjured physique that could change in a myriad of ways. Naturally, as a tier five Divine level expert, the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch was even more amazing.

His body turned into a type of pure flames, instantly colliding with the All-Conquering sword intent that descended from the skies.

This fire was the conjured physique of the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch-the Inextinguishable Flames.

In an instant, the flames were dissipated with a single strike. However, they started burning up again in void space in the blink of an eye. The cycle of slashing away, reigniting, slashing away, and reigniting again continued on for seven times. The All-Conquering sword intents that Fang Xingjian had sent smashing down were completely warded off.

The Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch looked at the Fang Xingjian in the sky with great astonishment. "What a powerful sword intent. Who are you? Do you know who I am? How dare you raise your hands against me in the Sand Country?!"

"It's Fang Xingjian!" Having felt as if he had passed through the gates of hell once again, the Fifth Prince raised his head and looked at Fang Xingjian in exasperation and rage. "Fang Xingjian! Are you crazy?! Do you really want to be at bitter ends against our Krieg Clan?!"

Lady Velia frowned. As she raised her hand, flowers bloomed all around. Layers and layers of fresh flowers seemed to have sprouted out from void space, blocking before her.

She said coldly, "Fang Xingjian, you assaulted a Prince and went up against royalty. Are you really going to rebel? Is this how the Second Prince has taught you?"

Lady Velia wore palace clothings and had a veil over her head, revealing a mysterious feeling. Although Fang Xingjian could sense that she was only a Demigod with three tiers of perfection, she exuded an extremely dangerous aura. Clearly, she had either concealed her cultivation or some kind of powerful Divine Weapon in her possession.

With a single sword attack, all three experts were revealed.

One of them was the Fifth Prince who had absorbed the souls from the 1,000-year battlefield and recovered the power of tier one of the Divine level. Another expert was Lady Velia, who appeared to be at the Demigod level but kept her abilities concealed while emitting a dangerous aura.

Of course, the most dangerous one of them all was the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch, someone who was at tier five of the Divine level and had that Inextinguishable Flames physique.

Hearing the Fifth Prince's and Lady Veila's words which seemed to be admitting their defeat, the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch smiled and looked toward the sky. "So you're Fang Xingjian? To think that you would dare to come and create trouble in Sand Country, which is my territory. You're really as bold as the rumors make you out to be. Since you're here, you can forget about leaving.

"Stay here."

As he spoke, the world broke out in a brilliant light, and countless fire lotus flowers rose in void space. They were light countless white feathers, flying out toward Fang Xingjian.

Each fire lotus flower could incinerate a small town into ashes. In the blink of an eye, they surged out in an overwhelming manner, bringing about layers of ripples in the sky. The great power contained in them seemed to even be able to scorch space.

This was not only a fire attack. The myriad of fire lotus flowers also formed a disorderly space, making it so that there was no way to escape nor dodge.

Within the flames, the martial will of the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch smiled. "Fang Xingjian, I'm the ruler of the Sacred Fire Order, the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch. These are the World-Cleansing Lotus Flowers, a secret art passed down within our order. It has been integrated with the tier five Divine level ability to stretch and contract space. You won't be able to break through it."

Lady Velia looked at this terrifying attack and gasped, 'This Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch is really a grandmaster of his generation. This means of integrating flames and space is no longer something that Alexander's Inferno can be a match for.'

However, faced with this overwhelming attack, Fang Xingjian did not dodge at all. With a toss of his hand, the Thunder Calamity darted into void space. Then he reached his hand out in a grabbing motion and the Abyss Longsword was already in his grasp.

As he slashed out, Infiltrating Void sword intents transmitted out using space as a medium. At almost the instant when Fang Xingjian slashed out, large areas of sparks burst out from the body of the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch.


The Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch was shocked. He had put up layers of spatial defenses. How on earth did Fang Xingjian still manage to slash him?

Fang Xingjian said coldly, "Scram. Otherwise, I'll annihilate your entire Sacred Fire Order."

The Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch laughed coldly, "Arrogant."

At the next moment, with a single thought, the speed of the myriad of fire lotus flowers increased drastically and shot out toward Fang Xingjian like meteors. However, countless All-Conquering swords burst out in void space, clashing with the lotus flowers. They were either melted by the lotus flowers or managed to slash and dissipate the fire lotus flowers.

The Thunder Calamity Longsword moved through void space, sending out streams of All-Conquering sword intent and forcibly warding off a large part of the attacks from the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch.

However, the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch was a tier five Divine level expert after all. There were still many white fire lotuses clashing onto Fang Xingjian's body, unleashing a huge prowess like that of meteoric flames. They burned up Fang Xingjian's Heaven-Connecting Sword Physique, making him seem like a fire person.

Seeing this, the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch laughed out loud. With a swing of his hand, more and more lotuses soared up into the sky. "Fang Xingjian, my World-Cleansing Lotus Flowers takes in martial will as their nourishment. Once they gets onto you, they will continue to burn endlessly. There's no way that you'll be able to extinguish them."

However, when Fang Xingjian sensed the many white flames burning on his body, he still did not pay them any heed. Holding the Abyss, he slashed out again, passing through the densely packed World-Cleansing Lotus Flowers. This caused a myriad of sword light to burst out explosively on the body of the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch.

The Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch let out a stifled snort, and the flames he turned into kept on dissipating and regenerating. Throughout the entire process, he kept on dodging, avoiding, and even setting up layers of disordered spaces and using the World-Cleansing Lotus Flowers to defend. However, they were all useless.

Right now, Fang Xingjian's Infiltrating Void sword seemed elusive and traceless, only exploding at the moment it hit its target. During other times, it would attach itself within the space. It was hard to ward all of them off, regardless of whether one were to use martial will or disorderly space.

After a series of 21 sword slashes, fire sparks kept on splattering from the body of the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch. He was unable to ward off the sword attacks and could only scamper around. As he could not block the attacks, he could only just receive them as they were.

Simultaneously, the Thunder Calamity Longsword in void space shot backward and pierced through Fang Xingjian's body. With its unrivaled slashing power, it peeled off the hints of conjured physique like peeling an apple's skin, getting rid of the burning World-Cleansing Lotus Flowers.
