Supreme Emperor of Swords - Chapter 996 - How Could I Encounter such a God of Massacre?
A brand new world unfolded itself in front of them. This place was like a virgin land that could be exploited at will. The blood in the mercenaries’ bodies was boiling and surging with a fiery impulse to do whatever they wanted.
“Listen up, everyone. The commander has ordered that no one be allowed to move without permission. Anyone who gets out of the range of five kilometers without the commander’s permission shall be killed without mercy,” a one-eyed, one-armed, middle-aged man on board the warship shouted. On his shoulder stood a white eagle that looked quite terrifying.
The man was a steward of the Black-blood Dragon Mercenary Troop.
He was a cruel, ruthless, and terrifyingly powerful person.
As soon as he finished speaking, all mercenaries immediately quieted down. They didn’t dare to make a sound. Obviously, he enjoyed great prestige in the troop.
However, there was only one person who walked away as if he didn’t hear the steward’s words at all.
It was a young man who appeared to be in his early twenties.
He was wearing a long teal robe. His long black hair looked like a cascading waterfall. He was tall and slim. He glanced around with his eyes flashing with surprise, and with a look of strong sentimental attachment on his face, he murmured, “I’m back. I’m finally back…”
He walked forward slowly, completely ignoring what the one-eyed and one-armed steward said.
“Swoosh!” The eagle standing on the steward’s shoulder suddenly flapped its wings and streaked across the sky like a white lightning bolt.
“This brat is going to get into trouble.” A mercenary gloated.
The veterans had seen many unruly mercenaries being torn to pieces by the saint-level eagle. They already considered the teal-robed young man a dead man. In order to invade the new world, the Black-blood Dragon Mercenary Troop had recruited quite several newbies. These newbies would surely be regarded as cannon fodder. They were very unruly and tended to disobey instructions. It was time to warn them by punishing one of them.
The white eagle flapped its wings, fixed its eyes on the teal-robed young man, and swooped down like a bolt of lightning. Lightning flashed around its sharp claws, and even the void was distorted under the claws.
The one-eyed and one-armed steward looked ruthless, and his eyes flashed a touch of cruelty.
All those who refused to follow his instructions would have to die.
Otherwise, the mercenaries of the entire group would break the rules and go against him.
In the distance…
It seemed that the teal-robed young man hadn’t sensed the terrifying eagle’s attack yet. He was still walking slowly. It was early spring in the Northern Region, but the snow still lay thick on the ground, making people feel cold when walking on the thick blanket of snow.
In the twinkling of an eye, the eagle’s sharp claws almost reached the young man’s shoulder.
Just then, the young man gently shook his shoulder.
A beam of sword light shot out.
The white eagle let out a shrill cry. Undoubtedly, it was hit by the beam of sword light. With a boom, it turned into a blood mist scattered all over the sky, and its white feathers drifted in the air and fell to the ground.
“He’s killed the eagle in the blink of an eye!
“He’s smashed the saint-level eagle into pieces with just one blow.”
The smiles on the faces of the mercenaries gloated and waiting to watch the fun froze.
The one-eyed and one-armed steward on board the warship froze to the spot, stunned.
“This young man is… so powerful!”
For a moment, no one dared to speak or step up to stop the young man.
The mercenaries who had deliberately provoked the teal-robed young man on the way here broke out in a cold sweat. Only then did they realize that they had just fallen into and escaped from the hands of Death. If it hadn’t been for the fact that the young man didn’t want to bother messing with them, they would probably have died hundreds of times.
The ruthless steward narrowed his eyes slightly. Losing the white eagle was a great blow to him because the eagle was an important part of his combat capability. His eyes flashed coldly, but he didn’t take action.
He could tell that the young man was too powerful for him and he was no match for the young man.
“We can’t defeat this young man unless the commander takes action in person…”
He looked back and found that the door of the warship’s command cabin was tightly shut. The formidable commander that could make people tremble with fear did not say or do anything. The steward didn’t believe that the commander did not see what was happening, so he thought there was only one explanation.
The commander didn’t want to mess with the young man either.
“Who the hell is he? Why does he come to the Land of Infinity?” The steward grew even more surprised.
After less than half a day…
The black-haired young man in a blue robe appeared at the gate of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect.
He stood quietly by the Sword-cleansing Pond and looked up. There was a look of unconcealed excitement on his handsome face, but this look of excitement soon turned into a confused, sullen look.
“Why… are there so few people?”
He was surprised.
He found that there weren’t many people at the gate, which was quite different from what he had imagined.
“Could it be that…”
He had a bad feeling.
In the blink of an eye, he moved swiftly and came to the gate area.
The gate area used to be a lively and prosperous place, but now, it was covered with a thick mat of fallen leaves. Obviously, the defense formation around the gate of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect was in disorder. According to his memory, the gate area, which was protected by the defense formation, should have the same climate as the outside world at the moment, and the time should be early spring in which green trees and grass thrived. However, the season in the date area was obviously autumn.
A gust of wind blew gently, and dust rose into the air.
It seemed that this place hadn’t been cleaned for a very long time. It was all covered in dust. Spider webs were found in many martial houses, all kinds of weeds were growing everywhere, and there were even fat hares running about. Some buildings had collapsed, and the originally towering stone statues were covered in dust now.
The whole place looked bleak.
“Is it empty?” The teal-robed young man stood there in a daze, disappointed beyond words. Suddenly, he thought of something and dashed towards the area behind the mountain like a flash of lightning.
In the blink of an eye, he arrived.
The Spiritual Qi was a little more abundant in the area behind the mountain. The young man found that the garbage area here was somewhat different from what he remembered. Many new buildings and palaces were obviously constructed later. This place used to stink, and the current environment was much better than before.
However, these buildings were also covered with dust and spider webs. Obviously, no one had lived in them for a long time.
“There are no signs of much fighting. It doesn’t look like it has been invaded, but nobody is here. Why?” The young man murmured to himself. In the blink of an eye, he came to the garbage cliff on the back side of the mountain.
He felt a little confused when he looked down the cliff.
The Great Abyss used to appear bottomless. He remembered that countless disciples of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect were forced to go down the deep abyss for mining in the whistling strong wind, but now, the abyss had disappeared and been replaced by a huge pit. The entire back mountain looked as if it had been hollowed out.
“The whole back mountain has disappeared… Has it been taken away by the people of the Heaven-Splitting Swordsmanship Sect?” The young man remembered what happened in the past, he couldn’t help boiling with killing intent. Now that he had come back, he would not let the Heaven-Splitting Swordsmanship Sect off the hook this time.
However, he was now more worried about the safety of his own sect.
“What happened here after I left?”
Right at that moment, a beam of cold light flashed across his eyes.
The sound of the wind came from behind him, and four people showed up and slowly approached him. They were quite powerful, but they were not from the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect.
“My friend, you don’t look familiar to me. Tell me your name, which sect you’re from, and what are you doing here.” The leader, a middle-aged intellectual, glanced at the young man with a gloomy, threatening look on his face.
The young man casually glanced back at the four people. Then, looking at the huge pit in front of him, he said, “Who are you? What are you doing in my house?”
The four people were confused. After a while, they seemed to have realized something. The middle-aged leader’s eyes flashed with a hint of joy. “Are you from the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect?”
“I’m Fang Tianyi from the Eastern Academy of green shirts of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect.” The young man introduced himself very seriously because his name had a very special meaning for him.
“Fang Tianyi? I haven’t heard the name before.” a bearded strong man sneered and said. “Well, since you are a member of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, you’d better surrender. It’s time for us to do something big. Ha-ha, we’ve finally found a big fish after waiting for half a year.”
Fang Tianyi frowned slightly. “Are you going after disciples of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect?”
“Yeah. So what? Ha-ha-ha…” The bearded man laughed viciously.
A beam of sword light streaked through the air.
The four people felt a cold flash in front of their eyes and could no longer see things. The beam of dazzling sword light had pricked their eyes. Shocked, they immediately stepped back.
When they could see things again, the middle-aged intellectual and another two people were shocked to find that the bearded man had a look of despair on his face, his huge body swayed, and his head fell to the ground and rolled away. Blood spurted out of his chest, and he died.
“Go to hell,” Fang Tianyi said calmly.
If he said such arrogant words a few moments ago, the middle-aged intellectual and another two people would surely sneer at him with disdain, but now these words had the same deterrent effect as Death. The middle-aged strong man was at the Intermediate Saint-Level and was one of the top masters within a range of tens of thousands of miles, but he failed to take only one blow from the teal-robed young man and got killed in an instant. The other three people knew that although they were a little more powerful than the middle-aged strong man, they still couldn’t withstand that blow from the young man.
The middle-aged intellectual shouted in a low voice and turned around to escape.
However, in the next moment, he was shocked to find that an unprecedented terrifying force overwhelmed him like an ancient mountain range. No matter how hard he tried to circulate the Qi in his body, he just couldn’t leap up. The worst thing was that he couldn’t even move his fingers.
“What kind of power is this?
“Could it be… the aura of a Supreme Master in the God Realm?”
The three people that were still alive were all saint-level masters. When they realized that, they were so scared that their faces turned pale. They didn’t want to take any chances. They suddenly remembered the legend about the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect. “Did Ding Hao really move his sect to the Immortal Land back then? Is this disciple of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect from the Immortal Land? Otherwise, how could his strength be so terrifying?”
“Who are you?” Fang Tianyi asked calmly without even looking back.
The three people looked at each other and did not say anything.
Fang Tianyi smiled faintly. As a beam of sword light streaked through the air, another saint-level master’s head was cut off. For all enemies of the Swordsmanship-seeking Sect, Fang Tianyi would not show any mercy. His experience in the past few years had made his heart become as hard as iron.
“You… We are the people of the River Palace. You are quite powerful, but the River Palace’s background is also…” Another Sage Realm Master shouted in shock and anger.
Another beam of sword light burst out.
The Sage Realm Master was cut into two pieces before he could finish his words. Even his divine soul failed to escape. Both his body and his soul died.
The middle-aged intellectual, who was the only one alive for the moment, was already trembling with fear.
“How could I encounter such a God of Massacre?”
