At the sight of this scene, Lady Velia's eyes twitched fiercely. The Fifth Prince was also trembling in fear. Such sword arts was truly terrifying.

The Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch kept being slashed up and then falling apart. However, although his conjured physique-the Inextinguishable Flames-had the unique trait of having a low defense, it had the ability to rely on the 1,000-year conviction of the Sacred Fire Order to regenerate infinitely.

Therefore, despite being slashed explosively for over ten times, he was still alive and kicking.

At the next moment, the world within a range of 100 lis suddenly changed. Regardless of whether it was the earth, desert, karst cave, or if it was the sky, the clouds, or the atmosphere... everything had turned into omnipresent flames.

Even the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch had turned into a lump of flames, blending into the surrounding flames just like a drop of water merging into the ocean. This made it hard for one to find traces of him.

The myriad fire waves seethed like they possessed their own will.

"Fang Xingjian, this is my Great Radiant Sect. I gathered a total of 49 sacred fires from all over the world and integrated the nine types of divine flames from our Sacred Fire Order into them to become one. This fire has the potential to create and annihilate the world. Will you be able to fend it off?"

"Oh? Is that so?"

As Fang Xingjian spoke, the four swords of the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation floated up. Each one linked its sword tip to another's handle, forming a sword ring and then appearing before Fang Xingjian. Spinning repetitively, they turned into a black hole. Then with a dash, Fang Xingjian darted into that black hole.


In the underground karst cave, Lady Velia let out a long breath, still feeling scared. "What terrifying sword arts, what a terrifying person. Not only does this person have unrivalled sword arts, his intents have even been completely merged into the sword intents for him to become one with the sword and possess a disposition of everlasting perdition. I wonder if the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch will be able to take him down."

It was only at this moment that Lady Veila knew what was meant by the saying, 'Knowing a person by their reputation can't compare to meeting them in person. Moreover, it would only be after meeting the other party that one would realize the other party surpassed what was rumored of them.' This was because Fang Xingjian's sword was even more terrifying than what was mentioned in any rumor.

The Fifth Prince also felt a little scared out of his wits. "His sword arts seem to be even more profound than when he fought against Father previously."

He was right. Previously, Fang Xingjian had only just comprehended some profoundness relating to gravity and then integrated his Infiltrating Void sword into the Abyss Longsword. It had yet to be perfected.

However, the current Fang Xingjian had already been through some training. Not only had his Infiltrating Void sword taken a step into a brand new realm, it had even integrated with the Abyss Longsword. With a greater level of perfection in this area, his sword arts had been brought to a great level.

Beside them, Chaos Witch Lamia suddenly said, "Leave quickly."

"What?" Lady Veila said puzzledly. "Can it be that he's able to break through the Great Radiant World of the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch?"

However, at the next moment, a black hole suddenly appeared with a flash. Sword light burst out from it, turning into an All-Conquering sword intent and slashing out toward the Fifth Prince.

The Chaos Witch's countenance changed, and she stood before the longsword. At the next moment, a white light flashed, then both she and Fang Xingjian appeared in a pure cyan space at the same time.

Fang Xingjian looked at the change which had occurred so suddenly and was slightly taken aback. He had been about to perform the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation when he realized that there was no reaction at all.

The Chaos Witch chuckled and said, "You can stop trying. Fang Xingjian, it's useless. You won't be able to use any of your power here."

Fang Xingjian looked at the Chaos Witch before him. This was the first time he had met her. It was because from the moment Chaos Witches were born, they were cast with an uncontactable curse. As long as they were unwilling to, no one would be able to come into contact with them or realize their existence.

"Who are you?"

The Chaos Witch said calmly, "Chaos Witch Lamia, the guide of destiny and the protector of history.

"Fang Xingjian, do you know that the things you've done have destroyed the balance of the entire world? Your actions will lead to the collapse of the entire universe. You don't understand what a great mistake you've made."

Fang Xingjian could not be bothered with the Chaos Witch and took a step forward. He tapped out with his finger, wanting to use his unparalleled sword arts to kill her.

However, as he made his move, he passed through her body as if it was a wisp of cyan smoke.

"It's useless." The Chaos Witch shook her head. "This is my Divine Country and you're unable to put up any resistance here. If I'm willing to, I can kill you with a single thought.

"But if you're willing to change your ways, I can forgive you!" She spoke with a tone that was full of benevolence and grace. As if she was a loving mother persuading her rebellious son to change his ways, her tone was full of sincerity.

Fang Xingjian said coldly, "Change? How do you want me to change?"

The Chaos Witch said sincerely, "Stop making an enemy out of the Krieg royal family and participate in the evil god ritual to help them! Only by doing so can the world be saved. Otherwise, when the seventh onslaught comes, no one will be able to survive."

However, Fang Xingjian had already reacted. He looked at the cyan space before him and said, "You can't kill me, right? If you can, why would you bother persuading me?"

The Chaos Witch's eyes narrowed. However, Fang Xingjian said in an antagonistic tone, "Make your move. If you want to persuade me, you must first defeat me."

The Chaos Witch let out a furious bellow, and in an instant, a huge change occurred in the entire cyan space. The two of them seemed to instantly pass through countless universes and space-time continuum. All sorts of black holes, white holes, fixed stars, and spaces with endless quantum kept on criss-crossing in all directions, producing changes that flashed in a myriad of colors.

The two of them seemed to have passed through endless space-time continuum and arrived at the end of the universe.

"Fang Xingjian, treasure the chance that I'm giving you. You have no idea how big a gap there is between us. If I'm willing to, I can crush you completely with just a single thought."

Violent bellows kept ringing out explosively next to Fang Xingjian's ears. The Chaos Witch's power did seem real, and even Fang Xingjian was unable to sense any flaws in them. He looked at the astonishing scene before him, but there was no changes to his expression at all.

"You can kill me, but don't dream of changing my will. If you can kill me, then just do it."

"Idiot!" The Chaos Witch shouted furiously, "Then go die!"

At the next moment, a power, which was as if the universe had exploded, rose up. Planets, fixed stars, black holes, and even the entire Milky Way collapsed. It was as if the power was going to destroy the entire world.

However, Fang Xingjian merely looked at this scene coldly until everything dissipated, and he once again returned to the real world.

The Chaos Witch's expression became twisted. She could only watch as Fang Xingjian continued that sword attack from earlier, paring off 99.99% of the Fifth Prince's power with a single sword.

"Idiot! B*Stard! Boor! You're a fool who only knows how to fight!"

The fury in the Chaos Witch's eyes rose rapidly. What she performed earlier was, of course, not the Divine Country but a technique called Thinking Space. It could bring two person's consciousness into a subspace. To the outside world, it would be like time was at a standstill.

Although one would be able to perform any form of battle abilities within it, she would also be able to stimulate all kinds of phenomena in the universe.

However, from the very beginning to the end, Fang Xingjian was completely unfazed. The Chaos Witch could sense that he was not fully confident in his guess behind the truth of the Thinking Space. He merely went straight on, not regretting even if he were to die or fail countless times over.

This was the type of person that the Chaos Witch hated to most. They were as stubborn as rocks, and almost any kind of threats, temptations, or guidance were all useless.

Under everyone's astonished gaze, Fang Xingjian once again slashed the Fifth Prince into a crippled person with a single sword. It was only then that the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch darted out from the divine fire and looked at Fang Xingjian with a gaze full of wariness.

During their short exchange earlier, the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch realized that although it was hard for Fang Xingjian to defeat him, he was also unable to do much to Fang Xingjian. This made the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch hesitate a lot more.

Fang Xingjian turned to look at the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch. "Do you still want to fight?"

His gaze, which was like sword light, caused the Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch to shudder.

The Sacred Fire Order's Patriarch took a step back and snorted while saying, "Young man, I have no feuds with you. Of course, I don't care that you people from the Empire are killing each other. I'll spare your life for today. As long as you don't create trouble in my Sand Country, I won't take the initiative to suppress you."

As he spoke, he turned into a stream of sparks and disappeared into the horizon.

It was not an easy feat to cultivate to tier five of the Divine level. Moreover, with all the splendor and wealth the Sacred Fire Order had accumulated over the years, how could he possibly bear to throw them away?

It was because he had reached a high cultivation level that he would treasure his power. How could he possibly be willing to risk his life to fight Fang Xingjian for the Fifth Prince and the others? He left behind his words and departed.

Lady Velia shouted furiously, "This cowardly scoundrel!"

The Fifth Prince dropped to his knees. His body had an airy appearance like he would dissipate at any moment.

He watched as countless pieces of martial will dissipated from his body, and the replenishment he had gained from the 1,000-year battlefield was completely destroyed.

The Fifth Prince looked at Fang Xingjian and bellowed, "Fang Xingjian! You better kill me today! Otherwise, regardless if it would take ten years or even 100 years, there will come a day when I will wipe out your entire clan! I'll make you regret what you've done today!"

Being crippled once again, even someone with the Fifth Prince's shrewdness and strong will felt dejected and on the verge of collapse. He hated Fang Xingjian to the core.

Fang Xingjian threw him a cold glance and said, "There's no need to kill you. From today onward, as long as you step into the Divine level, I'll beat you down. There's nowhere you can hide in this world. If you don't believe me, you can give it a try."

Hearing Fang Xingjian's words, the Fifth Prince gasped. He felt so infuriated that his body trembled and his martial will started flashing. It was as if he was going to collapse at any moment.

The Chaos Witch just watched on throughout the entire process. She understood that she was no longer able to stop Fang Xingjian as things stood, but countless schemes and plots seemed to flicker in her eyes.

'Fang Xingjian... must die. He has gone completely out of control. Even if we have to choose someone all over again, he must die.'
