“Kill!” Fang Zhengzhi bellowed deafeningly. At the same time, an intense killing aura, which was as vast as the ocean, shot out from his body.
At this moment, the killing aura reverberated in the air like a tidal wave. It spread in all four directions like waves and pulsated on the ground.
This terrifying scene stunned the disciples and elders of the Heaven Dao Pavilion. Even the three Sages of the Black Moon Island were shocked by this scene. Some of the weaker disciples from the Heaven Dao Pavilion involuntarily took a few steps back.
This step weakened the eight sword formations that they had formed.
In the next moment, with Fang Zhengzhi in the center, the ground sank once more. Then, a humongous diagram appeared on the sinking ground.
“The h.e.l.l Dao!”
“It really is the h.e.l.l Dao!”
“Fang Zhengzhi… he mastered the h.e.l.l Dao!”
“Oh my G.o.d! How can this be possible? He is able to master the h.e.l.l Dao just by fighting s.h.i.+ Fan. Is… is he still human?!”
The faces of the Heaven Dao Pavilion disciples were all pale-white. This time, they were all truly terrified. This terror reminded them of the battle which took place in the Heaven Academic Altar one month ago.
In that battle, Fang Zhengzhi mastered the Dao of Yin Yang. This was the main reason why Fang Zhengzhi was able to turn the tides of battle against the First Disciple of the Yin Yang Hall, Wan Lei, and beat him.
At that time, everyone thought that Fang Zhengzhi had already been researching the Dao of Yin Yang. Hence, even though they were shocked, they were not terrified.
This time, the same thing happened before them again.
This forced the disciples of the Heaven Dao Pavilion to confront a ludicrous possibility. However, if it came true, then Fang Zhengzhi, who stood before them, was a true prodigy.
“He can master a Dao just by fighting it! It's real!” Second Elder did not want to believe it as his rational mind told him that this was simply impossible.
However, reality showed to him that other than this possibility, there was no other way for him to justify what was happening before his very eyes.
“Master a Dao in a fight?!” Sixth Elder looked at Fourth Elder, who was silent, and he could not help but suppress the look of shock in his eyes.
At this moment, he suddenly recalled Fang Zhengzhi's behavior in the Ninth Heaven.
The Ninth Heaven!
He did not depend on luck but absolute capability! Sixth Elder's face turned red. He only understood that such a person really existed in this world at this moment. Nothing seemed ‘impossible' anymore.
Time appeared to have stopped.
At this moment, Fang Zhengzhi moved too.
His body was like a bolt of lightning as he charged toward s.h.i.+ Fan with a heaven-engulfing killing aura and black flames. The purple light from his Traceless Sword shone intensely, and it also formed a faint purple shadow.
“Die!” A murderous and cold voice that seemed to have come from h.e.l.l rang out, turning the air around it solid with fear.
“He was even faster than before!”
The Heaven Dao Pavilion disciples could barely see Fang Zhengzhi.
s.h.i.+ Fan opened his eyes wide too. His injuries were not fatal, but at this moment, it was impossible for him to make a proper decision.
“h.e.l.l Dao?! He… he actually mastered the h.e.l.l Dao?!” s.h.i.+ Fan could not believe the reality that was taking place in front of him because only he knew the difficulty of mastering the h.e.l.l Dao. It was a process which he did not want to recall. However, right now, Fang Zhengzhi was challenging him to a fight after he had fully mastered the h.e.l.l Dao. Furthermore, he could even use the Eight Winters h.e.l.l. “I don't believe it, I don't believe it!”
s.h.i.+ Fan was evidently unwilling to accept it!
However, the black flames all around Fang Zhengzhi's body were real. The huge symbol of the ground was real too. Even the powerful attractive force was real and rattled him deeply.
“Ah!” s.h.i.+ Fan hated him. He had never felt this much hate in his life. He did not hate the fact that Fang Zhengzhi was still alive but instead, he hated the fact that Fang Zhengzhi had mastered his h.e.l.l Dao, which he took immense pride in.
This was utterly humiliating.
The Traceless Sword got closer and closer!
s.h.i.+ Fan's sense of injustice made his mouth turn sweet. He spat out another mouthful of blood. At this moment, his mind appeared to be rattled.
“Elder s.h.i.+!” Just when the Traceless Sword was less than one inch from his throat, a black shadow stood in front of s.h.i.+ Fan, blocking him.
At the same time, a layer of light completely enveloped the black shadow and s.h.i.+ Fan. The bright radiance illuminated the dimmed sky.
Yuan Rong and Second Elder of the Black Moon Island were shocked when they saw the black shadow which blocked Fang Zhengzhi. Then, they both cried out urgently.
However, it was too late, because Fang Zhengzhi's sword had reached.
“All those who block me shall die!” Another murderous voice rang out and a ray of purple light slashed the light screen that covered Third Elder of the Black Moon Island and s.h.i.+ Fan.
“Crraack!” The light screen trembled and instantly turned into many dots of light.
It did not even resist the slash.
“How is this possible?! I'm a Sage!” Third Elder of the Black Moon Island looked at the disappearing light screen and he could not believe his own eyes.
After all, in his heart, he knew that while Fang Zhengzhi had mastered the h.e.l.l Dao, he was still in his Rebirth State.
How could someone in the Rebirth State break through his defenses?
In other words, how could someone in the Rebirth State break through his defenses so easily?
He could not believe it.
However, the purple radiance not only broke through his defenses but it had also swiftly arrived in front of him. Furthermore, the dense killing aura it exuded made him shake.
“Pffsck!” Blood flew everywhere.
Before Third Elder of the Black Moon Island could react, he felt an intense pain from his shoulder. Then, blood spurted everywhere.
At the same time, he saw an arm flying, an arm which wore the sleeve of a black robe. Blood spurted everywhere like a fountain.
“Ah!” A cry of pain rang from the Third Elder of the Black Moon Island's mouth. Even though he was a Sage, the pain of losing his arm still made his body convulse.
However, it was evidently not over yet.
This was because the moment his arm was cut off, Fang Zhengzhi appeared before him. Then, he threw a punch at him.
The fist was clad in black armor and burned with black flames. Furthermore, it brought with it a razor-sharp, sword-like aura.
“Fang Zhengzhi!” Third Elder of the Black Moon Island roared in fury. His mind told him to retreat, but he could not retreat anymore.
This was because this punch came too quickly.
If he retreated now, this punch would follow him and then, pierce his heart.
Hence, all he could do was to grit his teeth tightly and clenched his other fist before hitting out with it.
“Boom!” A huge explosion shook everyone's heart.
The moment Third Elder of the Black Moon Island felt his fist hit Fang Zhengzhi, he felt as if an energy which seemed capable of pus.h.i.+ng a mountain over surged toward him. It came at him ceaselessly and was as vast and powerful as the ocean.
More importantly, the sharp energy it exuded was too powerful. It seemed capable of piercing through his fist in one strike.
“No!” Third Elder could not understand why he, as a Sage, would lose to someone in the Rebirth State.
This guy was a demon!
Third Elder suddenly felt his whole world cras.h.i.+ng down around him. After all, this was the second time he was losing to someone in the Rebirth State.
The first was when the three Sages of the Black Moon Island fought against Chi Guyan. Then, he too was fighting a Rebirth State cultivator.
However, he accepted his loss then willingly.
This was because Chi Guyan descended from the number one bloodline of the Holy Region, the bloodline of Nüwa. Hence, even though she was just in her Rebirth State, he lost to her willingly.
However, this time…
He lost once more.
Furthermore, he lost in terms of absolute strength.
While this energy defeated him with its sheer sharpness, the result did not change. He still lost. Something like this should not be happening.
After all, in terms of the disparity in strength between the states, even Chi Guyan, who was known as the Chosen One, could not defeat a Sage in terms of absolute power.
However, Fang Zhengzhi did it.
Not only did he succeed, after his blow, he struck out once more. His attacks seemed infinite. Swinging his hand like a sword, he struck out at him once again.
“Boom!” Another explosion.
This time, the sound came directly from his shoulder. This one punch was able to almost completely shatter his shoulder.
An intense pain hit him.
It was not finished because the moment the second punch landed, Fang Zhengzhi punched a third time. Furthermore, he aimed this punch right at his chest.
“Puuutsk!” The eyes of Third Elder rolled. They were filled with blood and had turned entirely red.
His world turned red and in this red world, he saw a fist, a fist which penetrated his chest. On this fist, black flames burned.
The black flames started to spread rapidly toward his heart, burning. It even incinerated his Small Dimension.
“I will actually die… die by his… hands…” Third Elder looked at the fist that was approaching him. While he expected to die one day, he never expected to die at the hands of someone in the Rebirth State.
Furthermore, without even putting up a fight, his heart was pierced by his opponent. Furthermore, it was incinerated beyond saving by the h.e.l.l Dao.
He was unwilling.
However, he could not be unwilling to face death. His rapidly-draining energy told him that this time, he was truly defeated. He had no chance of fighting back.
That was not right. Someone like him should not even exist!
“Bleurgh!” Third Elder spat out a mouthful of blood, staining his black robes red. At the same time, Fang Zhengzhi's sword in front of him glowed in an even more demonic shade of purple.
Fang Zhengzhi did not stop.
After he punched a hole right through Third Elder, he aimed his Traceless Sword at s.h.i.+ Fan, who was just before him. His eyes, which shone like crystals, had eight b.a.l.l.s of fire dancing inside.
“Another Sage is… dead?!”
“He killed one of the Three Sages of the Black Moon Island, he's…”
“How can this be possible?!”
The Heaven Dao Pavilion disciples looked at Third Elder from the Black Moon Island, whose eyes were closed. Their eyes betrayed confusion and horror because to them, this was impossible.
Surrounded by five Sages, three elders of the Heaven Dao Pavilion and hundreds of disciples should guarantee death.
Why was the result like this?!
When Fang Zhengzhi killed Yin Sen, it could be due to his luck and Yin Sen's carelessness. This time, when Fang Zhengzhi killed Third Elder of the Black Moon Island, it was based on pure strength. This strength was horrifying indeed.
From the moment Fang Zhengzhi attacked to the moment when Third Elder died, all it took was a few blinks of the eye. Furthermore, he only used one sword move and three punches.
“A prodigy, this guy is a prodigy!” Fourth Elder of the Heaven Dao Pavilion, who had been silent all this while, finally spoke. The shock in his voice was genuine and in it, there was an inexplicable terror.
That was right. He created this whole set-up with Second Elder.
He never expected the result before him. When he made this decision, he only had a fleeting doubt about this.
Right now, his emotions were entirely different.
This was the first time he started to worry for his own decision because Fang Zhengzhi, who stood before him, grown to a level he could not predict.
If Fang Zhengzhi did not die after three months but instead, achieve the Sage State, what would be the results of the Heaven Dao Pavilion's decision today?
Fourth Elder had never thought about this before.
However, he did right now. Furthermore, this thought filled each corner of his mind. He clenched his fists tightly.
“Fourth brother, I don't think we can afford to let him live!” Second Elder's voice entered Fourth Elder's ears. It was not loud but clear enough.
“I'm afraid that we…” Fourth Elder's lips moved and he wanted to say something. However, no voice came from his mouth.
“To prevent this trouble from plaguing us in the future, we have to do the unthinkable. This is no longer up to us. Like what they say, if we make one mistake, there will be no end to the number of mistakes!” Second Elder did not ask what Fourth Elder had wanted to say because, at that moment, he thought the same thing as him.
