That was the highest level a martial artist would reach.
Very few people could become Advanced Grandmasters in such an environment. A city might not even have one. But all of them here had all become Advanced Grandmasters.
And Ethan was even saying that this was just the beginning. They will improve by leaps and bounds in the future!
They felt as though they had just broken out of the chains that used to bind them. The road ahead looked to be smooth sailing.
“Does that mean we have a chance to become as strong as you two?” asked Brother Geoff with a foolish smile on his face.
“In theory, it’s possible.” Ethan didn’t dash their hopes and confidence.
Besides, this wasn’t something that was completely impossible. The water from the Longevity Pond had made up for whatever they used to lack in terms of natural gifting.
Nobody knew how much more the wolves would improve in the future.
Who knew what the future held? Humans ought to dream big after all.
All of them were so excited to hear what Ethan said. This was like giving them a new lease of life!
“Thank you, Big Boss!” the wolves shouted in unison as they started jumping about excitedly.
“That’s enough, go and bathe, you smelly boys,” said Ethan.
“Go and bathe! Go and bathe! You all stink!” Even Kye was pinching her nose and pretending to look like she was about to faint.
When he saw that Kye was about to faint, Peter Pan immediately shouted, “Hurry up and take a shower! If your senior faints from your stench, I’m going to beat all of you up!”
Peter Pan still showed favoritism towards the little girl after all.
The wolves just burst out laughing loudly and ran off to take a shower.
“The next step is to deal with the men who have been awakened.” Ethan took a deep breath.
The memories he had inherited were becoming clearer and clearer, and the things he knew increased. But at the same time, some things were still a blur and he wasn’t really sure what the road ahead would look like.
Peter Pan glanced at him. “You don’t have to worry about this, I’ll talk to them. I’m still decent at talking reason into others.”
Ethan nodded. He wasn’t really worried. Peter Pan was now filled with vitality. He had drunk an entire bottle of Longevity Pond water straight, so he was even more powerful than at his peak back then.
“If reasoning it out with them doesn’t work,” Ethan gave him a look, “then you’ll have to beg them.”
Peter Pan glared back at Ethan. Beg them?!
He had never begged anyone in his entire life. There was no way he was going to beg those people.
Even though they came from the same era, those were fellows who lost to him in the past. There was no way he was ever begging them.
When he saw Peter Pan’s reaction, Ethan was assured.
At the same time in the Underworld.
After Darius returned, he called the other Court Chiefs over immediately.
He hadn’t gotten any clear response from Ethan, but he didn’t have a lot of time left.
If he couldn’t find a way to get the battle going as early as possible, he wouldn’t be able to take the chance to kill Greedy Wolf, and all of their lives would be in great danger.
“Ethan is not easy to work with and doesn’t cooperate easily,” said Darius directly. “We have to find a way to make him come to us and ask to work together. So I’ll need the rest of you now.”
“Didn’t you say you could settle this?” Juan, the 9th Court Chief snorted in a slightly sarcastic manner. He was clearly disdainful of Darius’s earlier confidence in himself.
Darius wasn’t bothered by this.
“I can settle it, but I need time. And who’s going to give me the time? Stop wasting time now. We’re all in the same boat, so if this boat flips, we’re all going down together!” Darius snorted. “As far as I know, the Demon King was looking for something back then. None of us would know anything about it, but I’m sure YOU would know a thing or two, right?”
He looked towards the 8th Court Chief, Vinny, who had been sitting quietly all this while.
Everyone turned to look at him as well.
Vinny looked up. “And what would I know?”
He laughed. “We’re all in the same situation. Why would I know anything more than you do?”
He shook his head and did not admit to knowing more.
Darius narrowed his eyes and his expression suddenly darkened.
“8th Court Chief, this is a matter of life and death!”
