“Nangong Mu, dream on!” At this moment, Fang Zhengzhi had reached too.
His reaction was pretty fast. Moreover, as Nangong Mu had spent too much energy on the battle with Xing Tian, it was slightly difficult for him to break open the hard ground to retrieve Xing Tian’s head immediately.
In a blink of an eye, Fang Zhengzhi was at the back of Nangong Mu.
“Fang Zhengzhi, you can’t stop me!” Nangong Mu was ready to fight with all his might. Golden and red light flashed in his eyes as he tried to delay the time using brute force.
“Rebirth, hell!” Fang Zhengzhi wanted to persuade him initially, but Nangong Mu had misunderstood him so much that simple sentences would definitely not be sufficient to persuade Nangong Mu.
If that was the case…
There was only one way.
Beat him until he complied!
Fang Zhengzhi’s way of dealing with things was always to make use of his brain, instead of his hands, to solve problems whenever possible. However, when he could use his hands, he would not hesitate to do so.
“Buzz!” With a quiet roar, eight clouds of black flames rose up and spread out rapidly, trapping Nangong Mu in the center. At the same time, the ground sank rapidly.
Nangong Mu was unable to resist at all as he was amid the Rebirth Hell Dao.
He fell onto the ground and the tree branches were forcefully hit into the ground, causing the cracked ground to sink even deeper.
Nangong Mu looked as if he was in pain.
“Nangong Mu, just give up, you can’t win me.” Fang Zhengzhi dashed down and was ready to control Nangong Mu with the fastest speed possible.
“No! I won’t lose!” Nangong Mu roared.
Fang Zhengzhi frowned slightly. Nangong Mu was way too stubborn. He was like a double-edged sword.
When he was your friend, he could do anything for you.
Similarly, when he was your enemy, he would definitely go all out against you.
“Hell, reversal!” Fang Zhengzhi shouted again.
As he shouted, Nangong Mu, who was initially in the ground, was suddenly pulled up by a powerful force and landed in Fang Zhengzhi’s hands immediately.
Rebirth Hell Dao.
The Rebirth Hell Dao manifested in two ways. The first was the Black Flames of Hell which was able to burn everything. The second was the forces of attraction and repulsion which could control the earth.
Simply by casually using the force of attraction and repulsion, Fang Zhengzhi managed to control Nangong Mu.
It had to be admitted that Xing Tian was the one with the most credits. After all, Nangong Mu was almost exhausted and could not resist.
“Fang Zhengzhi, just kill me. Even if you managed to kill me, I won’t admit defeat!” Blood trickled down the corner of Nangong Mu’s mouth as he looked extremely angry.
Before Fang Zhengzhi could complete his sentence of “I won’t kill you”, he heard a roar before a powerful force came pressing on him.
If he was hit by the powerful force, he would definitely die or be severely injured.
“Oh no, I forgot that I can’t beat Nangong Mu up in front of Xing Tian!” Fang Zhengzhi realized that the powerful force should have originated from Xing Tian.
One single word of “loyalty” allowed him to interact with Xing Tian.
Similarly, the same word “loyalty” cause him to make enemies.
It was like the old saying that went, “Winning or losing does not matter”.
Without hesitation, Fang Zhengzhi went down to the ground at an extremely fast speed without looking back.
Swoosh! A sharp and strong wind brushed the back of Fang Zhengzhi’s head. It did not strike him but the ripples from the wind still created a powerful impact.
Fang Zhengzhi’s back hurt and he released Nangong Mu’s hand, causing him to fall to the ground, making a huge dent on the ground.
“Fang Zhengzhi, are you alright?!”
Chi Guyan and Yan Xiu’s voice was heard almost at the same time.
“Calm down, I’m alright!” Although Fang Zhengzhi’s back hurt a lot, he knew that he definitely should not be rash or he might be attacked by everyone.
“Ah, Xing Tian, I’m going to kill you!”
“Ping Yang, no!”
After a few pulls, everything went back to the peaceful mode.
That was because Fang Zhengzhi had already crawled up from the dent. He was supporting the ground with one hand while holding onto the Traceless Sword with the other, five-colored light flashed in his eyes.
Meanwhile, in the sky, the extremely wild Xing Tian was carrying Nangong Mu on his shoulder. He flung his shield and ax in front of him continuously.
“Kill, kill…” Nangong Mu’s voice was weak. He was lying on Xing Tian’s shoulder but he looked as though he was completely sleeping on it.
That was because Xing Toan was way too big.
He was over a hundred feet tall, making him even taller than mountains. Nangong Mu looked as though he was lying on flat ground.
“Die!” Xing Tian roared coldly. He stopped using his favorite “scram” as he really wanted Fang Zhengzhi to die.
“I have no choice but to fight?” Fang Zhengzhi sighed but he could not afford to be distracted in the face of the powerful Xing Tian.
He put all his attention on Xing Tian.
Although this battle was different from his original plan, it was still within his expectations.
He had 50 percent of confidence!
There was definitely a chance of failure.
However, Fang Zhengzhi did not expect his plan to fail because of Nangong Tian.
He had deduced that Xing Tian would not kill Nangong Mu but he did not deduce that Nangong Mu would want to help Xing Tian retrieve his head.
This logic was insane!
In Fang Zhengzhi’s mind, there was a part of memory that originated from the past world. In order words, who would retrieve their severed head in the past world?
He only knew that a severed hand could be reconnected, but would a cock that was broken still have the same powerful effect after it was reconnected?
If it was impossible for the cock, then it would be even more impossible for the head.
The head that was severed thousands of years ago and buried under the Changyang Mountain should have turned into ashes? If he was able to reconnect Xing Tian’s head, then it would be a miracle.
Fang Zhengzhi did not expect Nangong Mu to have such a “wonderful” thought in mind and began looking for the head.
However, Nangong Mu did that.
Moreover, he told Xing Tian that Xing Tian shall help him kill others if he managed to find Xing Tian’s head. This also made Fang Zhengzhi realize that he was in a “fairytale” world.
Broken limbs were reattached and broken head could be reattached too.
Who said it was impossible?
In this stalemate, Xing Tian made two consecutive roars before moving like a wild horse.
Fang Zhengzhi could roughly guess that this was a battle tactic passed down from Emperor Yan and Emperor Huang.
Making use of roars to boost one’s confidence.
“Plan failed, Yan’er, leave first and I will stay to distract Xing Tian!” Fang Zhengzhi did not run straight away as the golden haze had yet to disappear.
Similarly, he could not possibly allow Chi Guyan and the rest to join the battle again as, after all, if that happened, the outcome would be disastrous.
Apart from him, Chi Guyan and the other humans could die too.
“Are you still leaving when your plan failed?” At this moment, a sarcastic voice was heard from Fang Zhengzhi’s back.
Then, a gigantic claw appeared from nowhere. It was a claw that was covered in red scales, it was sharp and cold.
It was terrifyingly fast too.
It struck Fang Zhengzhi’s back at the same time the voice was heard.
“What?!” Fang Zhengzhi’s attention was fixated on Xing Tian and did not realize that someone would spring a sneak attack from his back.
He did not feel any aura at all.
However, he recognized the claw.
Fang Zhengzhi was sent flying in the air with Qiong Qi’s strike. He flew up while Xing Tian’s ax struck at his head.
“Shameless brat, dodge!”
Yan Xiu, Ping Yang and Chi Guyan’s voices were heard continuously.
After that, Fang Zhengzhi saw Xing Tian’s body freeze in midair and the gigantic ax was only one inch away from his head.
The sharp and cold aura made his scalp turn numb.
Chi Guyan froze Xing Tian at the last moment.
However, very quickly, cracking sounds were heard and the gigantic ax which was frozen moved again. Meanwhile, Chi Guyan spat out a mouthful of blood.
Spat! The blood splattered across the sky.
Fang Zhengzhi did not hesitate. A hint of hope was still hope. An azure blue radiance flashed across his body and he was about to flee with the Heaven Dao.
However, just as he was about to flee, Xing Tian’s gigantic ax swept across after its direction was being forcefully changed. It struck Fang Zhengzhi horizontally.
Boom! With the azure blue radiance, Fang Zhengzhi’s body flew down and landed on the ground with a loud thud.
“Shameless thief!” Chi Guyan shouted in surprise and went down towards Fang Zhengzhi at an extremely fast speed.
Apart from her, Ping Yang and Yan Xiu also dashed down.
“Hahaha… Kill them!” Qiong Qi’s voice was heard from the ground while over ten powerful Godly Beasts appeared from nowhere.
In fact, when Nangong Mu landed on the ground, Qiong Qi and the other Godly Beasts had sensed that something odd was happening in the golden haze.
They acted straight away.
Making use of a Godly Beast who could penetrate through the haze, he planted himself silently on the ground and waited for the moment to kill Fang Zhengzhi and the other humans.
Heaven responded in his favor.
Fang Zhengzhi was struck by Xing Tian’s ax
Qiong Qi definitely would not give such a precious opportunity a miss. He attacked immediately and severely injured Fang Zhengzhi. He also made use of Xing Tian to kill Fang Zhengzhi.
Yet now, Chi Guyan and the rest dashed down.
This was an extremely rare opportunity to kill all powerful humans.
“Don’t let any of them off!” Tao Wu shouted too. Meanwhile, he charged towards the weakest Ping Yang and Yan Xiu and was about to kill them together.
Qiong Qi, on the other hand, charged towards Fang Zhengzhi. He wanted to make sure that Fang Zhengzhi was dead after being struck by Xing Tian. He would not give up until he saw his dead body.
However, Chi Guyan did not give Qiong Qi the chance to do so.
Tens of thousands of starlight swarmed towards Qiong Qi while Golden Dragon Xuanyuan Five, Mu Qingfeng and the rest of the humans came down.
A chaotic battle was beginning.
Xing Tian wanted to kill Fang Zhengzhi.
Qiong Qi wanted to kill Fang Zhengzhi too.
The ten over Godly Beasts as well as the demon race who had come over from outside joined the battle too. From any perspective, the outcome of this battle would end up in the death of humankind.
Loud sounds of collision could be heard repeatedly.
Chi Guyan did not retreat. She made use of the starlight to stand in front of Fang Zhengzhi and defended the furious attacks of Qiong Qi as well as Xing Tian.
Meanwhile, Yan Xiu and Ping Yang collaborated and fought against Tao Wu.
Golden Dragon Xuanyuan Five was also extremely fast. He floated in midair and defended against the crazy Godly Beasts along with Mu Qingfeng.
“Kill Fang Zhengzhi before killing Xing Tian!”
The Godly Beasts and the demons were boiling with rage. Their advantage gave them absolute confidence. All of them were wild and pounced towards Chi Guyan and the other humans continuously.
“Shameless thief, you won’t die, you definitely won’t die!” Chi Guyan was extremely determined. She would not retreat no matter what Qiong Qi did.
Swoosh! A beam of sword radiance flashed across the air.
It forced Qiong Qi to take five steps back as a crack was made on the ground. The sharp sword radiance was like the stars in the sky.
“Roar!!!” Qiong Qi roared furiously. He evidently did not expect Chi Guyan to be so powerful such that she was able to fight against him.
However, he was already triggered. The stronger Chi Guyan was, the more he wanted to kill her before killing Fang Zhengzhi. He would not let this chance go.
Qiong Qi pounced on them again.
A chilling radiance flashed from his claws as he flapped his gigantic wings. This made his attack as sharp as a sharp knife.
“Crack!” Chi Guyan’s shoulder was hit by the claw and her white armor cracked open. Although blood flowed from her injury, she did not frown a little.
She kicked Qiong Qi and caused him to fall to the ground.
However, at this moment, Xing Tian had reached. He struck his gigantic ax down and wanted to kill Chi Guyan.
“I can’t retreat. Once I retreat, the shameless thief would die, I can’t retreat!” Chi Guyan’s eyes flickered with starlight and went forward for the attack.
The ax and sword collided.
The gigantic airwave rippled outward. It was so strong that the broken stones on the ground were blown up and the Godly Beasts were astonished.
“This human named Chi Guyan is so powerful!”
“But she can’t beat Xing Tian!”
“That’s for sure!”
The Godly Beasts and demons were very sure.
However, to their surprise, Chi Guyan did not move at all despite this collision of weapons. Her feet sank deeply into the ground and countless starlight shone on her body.
“Scram!” With a loud roar, a gigantic snake tail was flung from her back and radiance was flowing on its five-colored scales.
Boom! The snake tail hit Xing Tian.
The powerful force was like the collapse of a mountain. Xing Tian rolled on the ground due to the impact and his gigantic ax was almost hit out from his hand.
The entire world fell silent.
