"It's time to proceed to the next step."
With that, Xiang Nan grabbed the blue sky with his left hand and the remaining sun with his right hand. His entire body turned into a bolt of lightning and instantly disappeared.
"So fast! It's actually a rare Lightning Meridian talent!"
The black sickle appeared, his body beneath the bow, and his right fist pressed against the ground.
"Wind Ghost, Desolate Trace."
A wind ring appeared on the spot, and the black sickle disappeared on the spot.
In front of him, Xiang Nan put his hands behind his back and wrapped his thunder energy around the blue sky and the setting sun. He moved at a speed of 60,000 miles per second, reaching the speed of one tenth of the light.
Behind him, the black sickle was chasing after him. Although he was a beat slower than Xiang Nan before he set off, he was gradually closing the distance between him and Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan turned around and smiled. "Not bad. Let's see if you can catch up to me."
With that, Xiang Nan increased his speed to two-tenths of the speed of light, reaching 120,000 miles per second.
At this moment, Xiang Nan had already turned into a ray of light, and everything around him was rapidly retreating.
When Black Sickle saw Xiang Nan flee in front of him, he gritted his teeth and shouted in a low voice, "Wind Ghost, Shadow Trace!"
As soon as he finished speaking, the black sickle turned into an afterimage of a coppage, and his speed doubled as he approached Xiang Nan again.
"Wind attribute martial artists, being able to have such speed is already pretty good." Xiang Nan looked back at the black sickle and nodded in approval.
That Can Yang looked at Xiang Nan in surprise and said, "Can you be so fast?"
Xiang Nan smiled and increased the speed of his advance to three-tenth of the speed of light, about one-third. This was already the standard speed of sub-light.
Its speed was already approaching 200,000 li per second.
Seeing this, not only did the black sickle not lose its color in panic, it became even more excited. He bit the tip of his tongue and shouted with a mouthful of blood, "Wind Ghost, Lost Trace!"
Then, he spat out a mouthful of blood, which burned into a ball of blood energy, surrounding him.
The black sickle quickly transformed into a bloody shadow, reaching a speed of 200,000 miles per second.
He was chasing after Xiang Nan, and was still approaching him step by step.
Xiang Nan smiled and said, "Good, good, good. To be able to catch up to this step is really not easy."
The black sickle also laughed loudly, "Come on, let's continue to compare. Let's see who's faster than us!"
Xiang Nan laughed so hard that his eyes narrowed. He licked his lips and said, "Sunset, Blue Sky, use the Lifesaving Cultivation Technique to protect your body. I'm going to greatly increase my speed."
The remaining sun was excited. Hearing this, his entire body immediately turned fiery red.
Blue Sky quickly dissolved the water elements in his body, turning him into a sandman.
Seeing that the black sickle had already caught up, he stretched out his right hand to grab Xiang Nan's back. The tip of his finger had even touched Xiang Nan's clothes.
At this moment, there was only a thunderclap in the clear sky.
Xiang Nan instantly increased his speed to 600,000 miles per second, advancing at full speed!
Xiang Nan disappeared in front of Black Sickle just like that.
Black Sickle's heart sank and he took a deep breath, "Damn it, how could this be? I can't even see his back!"
"Impossible! This is impossible!"
"Wind Ghost, Lightning Trace!"
The black sickle's body also shook, and his entire body was wrapped in a layer of dense lightning. In an instant, his speed reached 300,000 miles per second!
This was already at the standard half-speed of light!
However, he discovered that he was still unable to catch up with Xiang Nan, and the gap between them was actually so great that he couldn't even sense Xiang Nan's aura.
600,000 li per second was only twice as fast as 300,000 li per second.
But in reality, by comparison, it was equivalent to Black Sickle standing motionless, while Xiang Nan was moving away from him at a speed of 300,000 miles per second.
What kind of concept was this?
"I lost." Black Sickle suddenly stopped and sighed.
No matter what, he couldn't catch up. The Wind Ghost Lightning Trace was already the Black Sickle's limit, and it required an extremely high price. However, compared to Xiang Nan's speed, it wasn't worth mentioning.
"It's already pretty good." In the distance, Xiang Nan's voice drifted over.
"You actually learned a lightning vein movement technique. It's very enviable. You know, even I have never learned this kind of movement technique."
Xiang Nan's tone was indeed filled with envy. From beginning to end, Xiang Nan, who possessed a divine-grade lightning vein, had never found a single movement technique of a lightning vein.
In the end, the black sickle of the Wind Vein actually learned it.
However, the Wind Ghost only relied on the Lightning Meridian's movement technique. No matter how fast it was, it could only reach half the speed of light. It was still much weaker than Xiang Nan.
The wind ghost flew away. Under a tree, he saw Xiang Nan.
This was the outskirts of the main city of Gale Fortress. It was located on a huge floating island in the air of the hurricane belt.
Xiang Nan was sitting cross-legged on the ground, distributing candy to a group of poor children around him.
Strong Wind Fort was an extremely ferocious place, and it was also a heavily affected area for the poor people in the Sacred Domain.
How many martial artists came to the Sacred Domain with dreams in their hearts, only to discover that this place was not heaven, but the most terrifying hell.
How many martial artists had died here? However, once they died, their descendants would be helpless and become lonely.
None of the main cities could accept such people, so they fled to the Gale Fortress. They were unable to enter the main city and survive in such a cruel world. They could only live on the floating islands outside the main city, unable to communicate with the world, and the world ignored their marginal people.
Black Sickle was very clear about the origins of these poor people.
Eight four or five-year-old children stared at Xiang Nan with their naive eyes as they licked the candy.
They were licking the candy, not swallowing it.
Perhaps they were still hoping that Xiang Nan would give them another piece of candy after eating it.
The clothes they wore were very simple. They could even be said to be tattered. Usually, they were the clothes left behind by their older brothers and sisters.
They didn't have a place to stay in the Sacred Domain, nor did they have the ability to crush space and return to their hometown.
Xiang Nan smiled and stroked the hair of a child, bringing out some delicious dishes for them to eat and drink.
The black sickle stared at Xiang Nan and said, "I know what you're planning."
"You want to use these children as shields."
Xiang Nan shrugged his shoulders and pointed at the children, saying, "Although the parents of these children are martial artists, they have not yet entered the martial arts world. They are no different from ordinary children."
"As long as you kill me, even the slightest fluctuation of Astral Qi will be enough to completely destroy them in an instant."
The black sickle sneered, "Do you think I care about their lives?"
Xiang Nan said, "I don't know. Why don't you tell me?"
The black sickle laughed loudly, "You are really a shameful little person. You actually used your child as a shield for yourself."
"Do you think I'll fall for such a childish and absurd scheme now that I've seen through it?"
Xiang Nan shrugged his shoulders and didn't continue to speak. That meant that if you wanted to kill me, you could come. I didn't stop you.
