Birth of the Demonic Sword


Chapter 231 - 231. Special

Report Chapter

Phoebe saw blood coming out of Manuel's mouth.

She saw how the anger in his eyes slowly turned into astonishment before vanis.h.i.+ng altogether.

The light in his eyes disappeared as life left the n.o.ble, Manuel died right in front of her eyes.


Phoebe screamed.

She could have never imagined that a student from the academy would kill the heir of a n.o.ble family!

n.o.ble families were the most powerful organizations after the Royal family after all, who would want to antagonize himself with them?

However, Noah wasn't a common cultivator.

When Manuel attacked, he had already decided to kill both of them.

First, he had come there to test himself, there was no better opponent than an injured cultivator with a rank 4 body.

Second, those two were isolated from the rest of their group.

Once Noah saw that n.o.body else was coming, he decided that it was better to take care of that unexpected threat.

Third, he knew that his rank 4 body had been exposed, the woman in front of him simply didn't realize it just yet.

Lastly, he needed a bait for the Excavating worms.

If large quant.i.ties of "Breath" were to be expended in that room, many magical beasts would be attracted, preventing Noah from walking into a trap.

"I killed him."

Noah plainly answered, inspecting Manuel's body to gather all his belongings.

"Do you understand what have you done? The Gousho family will never let you off the hook, they will make you pay and no amount of protection can save you!"

Noah picked a s.p.a.ce-ring and Manuel's weapon and turned toward the woman still sitting on the ground.

"You really don't understand the kind of situation you are in, do you?"

Noah shook his head after he said those words and slowly neared her.

After that phrase, something clicked inside Phoebe's head and her eyes widened in understanding.

She remembered that Vance was younger than Manuel and yet he managed to defeat him just by using his brute force.

'That shouldn't be possible, unless…'

Her thoughts raced until she finally reached a conclusion that surprised her even more.

"You have a rank 4 body. But how? You are too young."

Noah nodded but never stopped nearing her.

"See, when you are blessed with wealth and power, you usually forget that you aren't so special. You can even be a Royal but, in this place, rules can't protect you."

Then, Noah began to run at full speed toward her.

Phoebe was surprised and forced herself to stand up, wielding her spear to block the incoming attack.

However, her injury was heavily hindering her movements, she was far from her peak strength.

'I can win this, he is the strongest student of his generation but I've cultivated for three years more than him, he can't be that powerful.'

More attacks came in her direction after that and she had no time to think about that sudden change.

Her spear rotated again, emitting the same vibrations as before.

Yet, that time her technique wasn't able to completely block the attacks and she was slowly pushed back by the relentless a.s.sault.

It had to be said that she was injured, she could not exert her full strength since her legs were wounded.

Also, Noah had stopped trying to find weak points in her techniques and began to focus on her weapon while using the full power of his body.

Phoebe was continuously pushed back.

Her legs hurt and her hands slowly became sore and numb, she could not last much longer if she limited herself to defend.

'What should I do? I can't properly attack in my current state and this Vance isn't showing any signs of getting tired. I should stall as much as I can and wait for Lord Daniel to arrive.'

She decided in her mind and focused all her energy on defending as much as she could.

The vibrations created with her martial art increased and began to affect a larger area in front of her.

Even Noah's movements started to be affected by those vibrations, yet he had already reached another conclusion in his mind.

His attacks began to emit a black smoke that acc.u.mulated all around Phoebe.

'A spell? But I'm using a rank 4 martial art with a rank 4 body and a defensive inscribed item in the second rank! Is he getting anxious?'

A trace of hope appeared in her eyes which was immediately shattered when she saw the effects that the spell had on the battle.

The smoke destroyed the vibrations that she was creating, allowing Noah's attack to freely clash on the spear and pierce her defense.
