Chapter 221: Cross of Fire
This man who suddenly appeared and stood by the corner of the sixth floor didn’t even attempt to hide his identity. He was wearing a loose black robe and a brown belt made from rough cloth. His figure was about average, and his long black hair was loosely fluttering around his shoulders. He looked like an average person and didn’t hide his face like the other assassins. From all Fei could tell, this man looked very normal, just like an average person.
Even if someone walked by him a thousand times, he wouldn’t leave any significant impression behind.
This man somehow was standing there in the main hall as if he was there the whole time and Fei just didn’t notice him.
Fei glanced at him and fixed his eyes on the weapon in this man’s hand.
An execution sword!
The hilt was a thick cylinder, and the edge of the sword was a bunch of red rusted iron spikes. The sword was about 1.6 meters long, and didn’t have a pointy top. It looked like a huge black rectangle sheet of metal that was sharpened from both sides, and there were two vicious back hooks at the top of the sword. This kind of sword was best for chopping, and it was primarily used on Azeroth Continent for execution of criminals. These swords were the most murderous and vicious.
This sword was being dragged by this person as if it was more than a thousand pounds heavy.
Fei first thought this man was a master warrior who was the back up of Paris. After all, not hiding the face and using such a heavy weapon didn’t fit the characteristics of an assassin. However, Fei knew that he was wrong when he looked into this man’s eyes.
It was the cruel eyes of death that a beast would have when it saw its prey.
This man was staring at Paris who was in the battle. Fei sensed that this man glanced at him as well. But maybe because this man didn’t sense any warrior energy, this man stop paying attention to him.
Finally, this man stepped forward.
The sword was being dragged, and what was surprising was that the blade of the sword and the wood floor created sparks irregularly as if this man was dragging a mountain and not a sword on the ground.
Fei clearly felt that this man’s power increased every time he took a step forward.
After the fifth step, this man was already on par with a five-star warrior.
The execution sword that was full of blood stains suddenly started to buzz and made a series of crisp cries. A sharp murderous spirit instantly filled the sixth floor. This sword suddenly seemed to have a life of its own. It was crying, asking, begging……. For the nurture of blood and flesh.
Paris who was in the battle sensed the danger.
Her green warrior energy exploded, and forced the three assassins to back off. Both of her hands drew out some mystic symbol in the air as she chanted. Two green saint birds flew out of her body as crisp bird cries filled the room. It made everyone feel like they were in a forest that was more than ten thousand years old, and the blonde girl in front of them was the goddess of the forest.
At the next moment, the green birds circled around Paris and pierced through two assassins who were wearing scale-armor and masks. The both of them turned into a cloud of blood mist, and Paris’ sword moved and dashed through the last assassin’s throat like a lightning bolt.
The man who was dragging the execution sword was calm. His face didn’t even change expression as if those three assassins weren’t his peers and were three dumb pigs.
He suddenly stepped forward and grabbed onto the hilt with both of his hands as he chopped downward.
As the sword moved, a devastating force erupted from the blade of the sword and dashed towards Paris who was about five meters away. Although this force was invisible, the damage it dealt was real. Like a huge godly weapon, the floor, the tables, the pillars, and walls…… everything was chopped in half in silence.
A powerful combat technique!
Paris’ expression changed as the green warrior energy around her lit up again. She waved her hands, and the birds appeared again. It cried as it went up against the invisible force. In an explosion, the bird cried as it was torn appear, but the invisible force was still dashing towards Paris as if it was never stopped.
The “evil woman” puked up blood as her body flew backward in the air.
The warrior energy that was protecting her body was instantly torn apart as well.
The difference between them was just too big. Paris couldn’t even take on one strike.
The man walked up again and repeated the same movement. He chopped down with his sword again, and a devastating force dashed towards Paris’ who hadn’t even fallen to the ground yet. This man wasn’t going to let her live.
“Your majesty, if you don’t move, I will be dead!” At this critical moment, Paris wasn’t nervous. A bright smile appeared on her face as she turned and looked at Fei, giving up all defense.
A crystal and transparent fist mark that was about a meter cubed in volume appeared and smashed into this invisible force.
The noise of glass breaking sounded. The invisible force was crushed, and the residual impact from the collision created a huge wind on the sixth floor. And like an earthquake, all the walls broke down, and all the chipped furniture were blown out of the building. A lot of gasps sounded outside, and all of the attention of the troops of all kingdoms at the campsites were drawn. The chilly moonlight was shining on the sixth floor, and Fei was already in front of Paris and blocked off all of the invisible energy!
“A master?” The man’s pupil contracted.
“Yes!” The king nodded.
“Great, I like killing masters.” A vicious smile appeared on this man’s face as he licked his lips excitedly.
This time, he slowly raised his sword as his expression suddenly became solemn, like a devoted believer who was praying to god.
He ignored all the noises that people were making outside of the building and the sounds of reinforcement coming. All of his concentration was on his sword, and then an impressive force appeared on him. The rusty execution sword suddenly shone like a shiny crystal, and a silver phantom sword that was more than 30 meters long appeared behind it. It soared into the sky and pierced through the roof of the building. Like a torch at night, this silver light attracted a ton of attention.
“Punishment from Heaven …… Die!”
The silver phantom sword chopped down at Fei and Paris mercilessly. Before the blade hit them, the wind created by the strike already shook the building as if the building was about to be torn in half.
This man, he was a six-star warrior.
A serious expression appeared on Fei’s face as he grabbed into the air. After two dashes of red flames appeared out of nowhere, the level 7 Set item [Bul-Kathos’ Children] was being grasped in his hands.
A light buzz!
The two swords [Bul-Kathos’ Sacred Charge] and [Bul-Kathos’ Tribal Guardian] was formed into a cross, and Fei guarded himself and Paris with these two swords over his head.
This level of defense looked weak against the phantom swords that were about 30 meters long.
It seemed like the last struggle Fei was putting up.
A smile appeared on the man’s face.
But soon, this smile froze.
At the next moment, red flame burnt on the sword, and these two flames grew in the wind. Soon, the two blades turned into two fire swords that were 10 meters long each. Like a cross of fire, they lit up the nightly sky.
The silver phantom sword collided with the cross of fire.
The sparks and colorful warrior energy exploded everywhere, and the eye-piercing lights made a lot of people close their eyes subconsciously.
The building that was trying its best to hold up against this level of battle finally cried as the whole building collapsed. The devastating waves of energy emitted to the surroundings in a spherical shape. The people who weren’t out of the range got blew into the sky, and all the surrounding structures collapsed and shattered as if a nuclear bomb was dropped there!
Fei coiled his arm around Paris’ waist as he leaped into the air to escape from the collapsing building.
A sweet bodily fragrance entered Fei’s nose, and the smooth and soft sensation his arm was feeling through the white robe was fantastic. This beauty’s temptation was fully demonstrated at this second.
However, none of these were on Fei’s mind.
He smashed out his left fist more than thirty times, and a crystal-like fist mark was being formed in the air. Finally, a transparent fist mark that contained all the essence of a fist was formed, and it looked lively and powerful.
“Sky Frost Fist…… One Strike One Kill!”
As Fei roared, the fist mark shook a little, and then it slowly accelerated and dashed toward the figure who was dashing away in the sky; the fist mark looked like a meteor that was created by a god.
A scream sounded followed by a cloud of blood mist and chipped bones exploding in the sky like a firework.
At this time, Fei and Paris have landed on the ground.
The imperial guards quickly rushed by and protected Paris in the middle.
The rusty execution sword fell from the sky and stabbed into the ground in front of Fei and Paris. After a few seconds, it chipped into several pieces of metal……
“Master, are you ok?”
“Master, I came too late, please penalize me!”
“Protect, Ms. Paris!”
The imperial guards all kneeled down around Paris as they cried out. They didn’t even dare to breathe hard. The most important subordinate of Prince Dominguez was almost assassinated, and they were at fault. If Paris was actually killed, they might all become slave workers to calm the second prince’s anger.
Not too far away, there were many corpses.
These assassins who were in scale-armor and had masks were almost all killed. The ones who were captured alive all committed suicide, not leaving any traces behind.
