“Slash him twice more?” Third Elder of the three Sages of the Black Moon Island was stunned when he heard it. Then, he looked at Fang Zhengzhi, who was completely immobile on the ground and as dead as he could be.
“Incinerated by the Eight Fires, how can he not die?”
This was what Third Elder thought. However, quickly, he still nodded his head and said, “Yes.” Then, he walked toward Fang Zhengzhi.
“Third brother, please be careful!” Yuan Rong was still worried as he said that.
“Okay,” said Third Elder of the Black Moon Island as he nodded his head again.
When s.h.i.+ Fan heard that, and when he looked at Third Elder walking toward Fang Zhengzhi, a cold glint appeared in his eyes once more. His expression was murderous.
“Wait! Yuan Rong, the three of you are just disciples of the Nine Pinnacles Mountain. What's the matter? Don't you believe that I, s.h.i.+ Fan, have killed this rascal?” s.h.i.+ Fan's tone was unpleasant. After all, as an elder of the Yin Yang Hall, he hated to be questioned.
“Elder s.h.i.+, please don't be angry. The three of us respect you immensely and naturally, we don't dare to suspect you. All we're doing right now is to give ourselves some form of rea.s.surance, in case the unthinkable happens,” explained Yuan Rong. When he heard what s.h.i.+ Fan said, he naturally knew what he was thinking.
“How can the unthinkable happen? Do you think that Fang Zhengzhi can really endure an Incineration by the Eight Fires? Do you think I want to spare him?” said s.h.i.+ Fan coldly.
“How can this be possible? Elder s.h.i.+'s presence today is a great honor for us. I think you have misunderstood us, Elder s.h.i.+. All I want is a peace of mind. After all, the mission is of utmost importance…. I believe that if Hallmaster Dao Hun is here, he'll support my decision…”
“Are you trying to coerce me with Hallmaster?”
“I wouldn't dare to do that. All I want is to…”
“Enough, there's nothing else to be said. I'll inspect him personally. You won't have anything to say to that, right?” s.h.i.+ Fan waved his hands and interrupted Yuan Rong.
“Hurhur… of course, if Elder s.h.i.+ inspects him personally, the three of us won't have anything to say to that,” said Yuan Rong as he frowned, but he quickly wiped the frown from his face and smiled.
“Hmph!” s.h.i.+ Fan did not wait for Yuan Rong to say anything else and he took a few steps forward. He arrived next to Fang Zhengzhi and looked at the extinguished black flames on him.
When Second Elder, Fourth Elder, Sixth Elder, and the disciples from the Heaven Dao Pavilion saw this scene, they all stopped what they were doing.
Inspecting a corpse, to a confident and powerful cultivator, was a disdainful task. However, despite Yuan Rong knowing this, he still took the risk of offending s.h.i.+ Fan by insisting that he did it.
From a certain perspective, it meant that…
Yuan Rong really wanted Fang Zhengzhi dead.
The other side of this matter was that the new potential Leader of the Nine Pinnacles Mountain was in a bit of a rut.
Of course, this was all expected.
After all, Tian Xing died too suddenly. No one had expected Tian Xing to meet with such an accident.
At this moment, s.h.i.+ Fan lifted his leg up.
“Thump!” He kicked Fang Zhengzhi's body and instantly sent him flying three steps away.
After he kicked him, s.h.i.+ Fan did not even look at Fang Zhengzhi as he turned around. He swept Yuan Rong with his gaze and said coldly, “He's dead!”
“This…” Yuan Rong's lips twitched. He wanted to say something but after he saw s.h.i.+ Fan's dark look on his face, he decided to swallow his words.
After all, he knew that the Nine Pinnacles Mountain was no longer the same without Tian Xing. Without a supremely powerful cultivator, it would naturally be treated very differently.
Of course, as long as the Nine Pinnacles Mountain could be united, it would still be a force to reckon with. To ensure the unity of his sect, Fang Zhengzhi must be dead.
He did not say anything else. Yuan Rong pressed down on Yan Xiu's shoulder and prepared to lift the half-kneeling Yan Xiu up. Afterward, he had to settle the matter back at the Heaven Dao Pavilion.
However, the moment he touched Yan Xiu's shoulder, a shadow flashed across in the corner of his eyes. This made his eyes bulge.
“s.h.i.+ Fan, be careful!” In shock, Yuan Rong did not even bother to address him as ‘Elder s.h.i.+'. He called him immediately by his name.
However, it was too late.
This was because the shadow was already behind s.h.i.+ Fan. More importantly, in the eyes of the shadow, eight b.a.l.l.s of fire burned. Eight black b.a.l.l.s of fire.
If a single sentence could describe Yuan Rong's feeling, it would be…
He would rather see a ghost than to see that pair of eyes!
“What?” s.h.i.+ Fan was proud because he had every right to be. However, for him to survive so long in the Holy Region, how could he not be careful?
However, he was wary of the Heaven Dao Pavilion and its disciples, who had formed their sword formations, as well as the three elders.
He paid no heed to Fang Zhengzhi, whom he thought was dead without a doubt. Hence, only when a murderously cold killing intent appeared behind him did he realize…
He should have been careful of one more person.
“Pffslick!” An icy-cold sword stabbed him from behind and then pierced through his body like a bolt of lightning. The tip of this sword shone with a demonic purple light.
It all happened very quickly.
Other than Yuan Rong, no one else really saw what had happened. However, the fact was that s.h.i.+ Fan now had a sword sticking out of his chest.
Blood spurted everywhere.
The demonic purple light made everyone's heart tremble.
The three Sages of the Black Moon Island, the disciples of the Heaven Dao Pavilion, and the three elders all looked at the shadow which had appeared behind s.h.i.+ Fan.
Its pair of crystal-clear eyes were so peculiar.
Even more peculiarly, its eyes seemed to project an image that was slowly taking shape. Eight b.a.l.l.s of black fire burned in that image.
It was s.h.i.+ Fan's Eight Winters h.e.l.l!
“Ah!” s.h.i.+ Fan roared in anger. At the same time, black flames which reached the sky rose from his body and completely enveloped it.
This was the first time s.h.i.+ Fan was so angry. This was because the sword that had pierced his chest had hurt his heart. If not for him taking a few steps forward, the sword would not have merely injured his heart; it would have pierced right through it.
He did not wail in agony because at this moment, he was more enraged than pained.
However, the shadow behind s.h.i.+ Fan had no intention of stopping just because he was enraged. After it stabbed him, the shadow struck s.h.i.+ Fan's back with its palm.
“Bleurgh!” s.h.i.+ Fan spat bright-red blood out from his mouth. This blood mixed from the blood from his chest as he flew into the air and tumbled down some distance away.
“How is he not dead!”
“How is this possible? How can something like this happen?!”
The Heaven Dao Pavilion disciples looked at the shadow far away, whose eyes danced with black b.a.l.l.s of fire. They finally reacted to it.
However, they still could not accept what was going on.
Fang Zhengzhi was still alive…
In the h.e.l.l Dao, he endured an Incineration by the Eight Fires, and he did not die? Furthermore, he still managed to stand up as if nothing had happened and even stabbed s.h.i.+ Fan with his sword. How could anyone accept something like this?
Was he a ghost?!”
If he really were a ghost, this would still be impossible!
This was something incomprehensible to the Heaven Dao Pavilion disciples. Of course, they knew that to the three Sages of the Black Moon Island, this turn of events petrified them.
“Fang Zhengzhi is not dead!”
“How can he be not dead?!”
Even Yuan Rong, who was cautious and had insisted on slas.h.i.+ng him twice more, was completely stunned when he saw Fang Zhengzhi stand up.
“His eyes…” Fourth Elder started to mumble. He did not look at s.h.i.+ Fan but instead, he focused his gaze intently on the black b.a.l.l.s of fire dancing in Fang ZHengzhi's eyes.
“Can it be that this rascal…” When Second Elder heard Fourth Elder's voice, an impossible notion flashed across his mind.
However, the moment this notion appeared, a huge round wheel of light before his eyes. To be precise, it appeared on top of Fang Zhengzhi's head.
The huge wheel of light started to spin slowly. Its cerulean and emerald-green light flashed.
The Rebirth Plate!
Second Elder naturally knew what it was, but because of this fact, he had this unpleasant feeling in his heart. Furthermore, it seemed to come true.
The moment the Rebirth Plate appeared above Fang Zhengzhi's head, the sky turned dark. Thunder boomed and rattled the sky.
“Kaboom!” A black light pillar came down like a black bolt of lightning. Yet, it was also completely straight and resembled a pillar that led into the heaven.
The black light pillar accurately landed on the Rebirth Plate. Then, inside the Rebirth Plate, opposite the cerulean light, the other lightless corner started to s.h.i.+ne with a faint radiance. Finally, it turned into a black ball of fire.
“Mmm!” The qi of heaven and earth appeared to be triggered. At this moment, the Rebirth Plate started to turn furiously. Blue, green, and black lights intersected.
At the same time, Fang Zhengzhi's black armor took shape once more. The shadow behind his back appeared again. This time, on his black armor and shadow, a layer of black fire burned.
