Tobias’ eyes widened in disbelief.
The expressions of the martial artists watching in the distance changed.
James withdrew his sword, and at the same time, he quickly thrust his palm toward Tobias’ chest.
Although James did not exert much force in his attack, Tobias’ body shot out, circling in the air, and slammed into the ground about a few hundred meters away.
James was overjoyed.He was right!
James did not dare to linger any longer. He turned around and called out to Bryce.
Then, he leaped over to Aphrodite and Venus. He held one of them in each hand and quickly jumped a few more steps into the air, disappearing from everyone’s sight.
Seeing that James had successfully dealt a sneak attack on Tobias, Bryce also did not dare to stay any longer and quickly evacuated.
After James and Bryce fled, the Cadens and other martial artists regained their senses and quickly rushed to Tobias.
Tobias was stabbed with a sword and hit with a palm attack.He coughed up a lot of blood, and his face was pale. By the time he was propped up, he had already lost all signs of life.
“James! I’ll never forgive you!!!”
Angry roars resounded.
Meanwhile, Bryce, who had escaped from Romsdalen Valley, laughed out loud.
“Haha! James, you’ve made a great contribution this time! You stabbed Tobias at such a close distance and even dealt another blow! He won’t be surviving that. Even if he doesn’t die, he’ll be seriously injured and won’t recover in time for the Mount Thunder Conference. We’ll have one less powerful enemy.”
James replied indifferently, “Of course. He’s a seventh-rank grandmaster, and I’m at the peak of the sixth rank. I dealt that sneak attack with all my strength while he was careless. He can’t survive that.”
“Not bad! Good job!”
Bryce patted James’ shoulder and said, “After we return, I’ll surely compliment you in front of Mr. Owen. He’ll be glad and will surely reward you.”
James smiled faintly and did not say much in reply.
They quickly left and returned to the villa.
Half a day later, they appeared in the suburb villa in Terentville.
Lucjan stood up abruptly and looked at Bryce in disbelief, “D-Did you just say that James… James killed Tobias?”
“Haha… Sir, it’s absolutely true. Tobias used the Thirteen Heavenly Swords and defeated James. However, he let his guard down, and James seized the chance to sneak an attack. James stabbed him and even followed up with a palm attack. I witnessed it myself. Tobias was stabbed in the heart, and James’ palm attack struck his heart too. It’s highly likely that he won’t survive.”
“Great! That’s great!”
Lucjan was excited and wanted to hug James.
James aggressively shoved Lucjan away and said indifferently, “I’m not interested in men.”
Lucjan was not angered by his behavior at all.
“James, you’ve done a great job this time! Tobias had always been one of my biggest threats. He’s a powerhouse of the seventh rank and practiced the Thirteen Heavenly Swords. There aren’t many people in this world that can defeat him, let alone kill him! From now onward, you’re my brother! Whatever I have is yours!”
Lucjan was in a good mood.
James killed Tobias, which solved a huge problem for him.
Bryce also talked about everything that happened in Romsdalen Valley.
After learning James had killed a lot of people, Lucjan laughed happily.
James stretched his hand and asked, “Where’s the antidote?”
Lucjan took out a small ceramic bottle, poured a pill, and handed it to James, saying, “Here’s the antidote. After taking it, the poison from your body will be rid of, and you’re free.”
James did not hesitate and immediately swallowed it.
Lucjan smiled and said, “You’re injured and must be exhausted. You should go and have a good rest.”
After speaking, Lucjan took out a bottle of elixir and handed it to James.
‘This is a healing elixir that I’ve personally refined. It’s great for healing internal injuries.”
James took it, turned around, and left. He headed back to his room upstairs.
As soon as he entered the room, he could not suppress it anymore and spurted out a mouthful of blood, collapsing to the floor.
