“Big brother Roel!”
“Die, die! I’ll send you to the depths of hell!”
Creeping up on Roel from behind was a bloodied Bron. His suave face was already ruined from being smashed into the table, and there were wooden splinters embedded in his face. His sharp nose bridge, that was once a source of pride, had collapsed downward, and his reddened eyes reflected his berserk state.
Baffling baboons! I have already smashed his head into the table, and he’s still able to climb back up?
Roel had underestimated the resilience of an Origin Level 6 transcendent. He didn’t think that Bron would be able to recover so quickly from his concussion and silently sneak up on him to stab him.
A searing pain assaulted Roel as Bron plunged his dagger, which was around the length of a finger, into Roel’s stomach. In this crucial moment, Roel quickly used Focused Burst to tighten his abdominal muscles while reaching out to hold the blade of the dagger in place.
“Miscreant, you dare use a dagger against me? Are you tired of living?”
“I’ve been thinking of ways to lure you out and deal with you, but who would have thought that you would come knocking of your own accord—and for the sake of this hideous woman? You sure have made things convenient for me!

A pair of golden eyes met a pair of green eyes, one impassively cold and the other ferociously vicious. Just like that, the two of them wrestled in this life-and-death tug-o-war.
As time went by, Roel’s hands began to shake.
The earlier battle caused his left hand to be seared to the point where it couldn’t be used anymore, and his right arm was bleeding profusely from holding onto the sharp blade. He couldn’t sustain Controlled Breathing anymore, and his mana was down to the dregs. In comparison, while Bron was faring horribly too, his state was at least better than Roel’s.
“Hahaha, you have run out of strength now, haven’t you? I can feel your grip loosening by the moment!”
Bron mocked coldly as he grit his teeth and pushed the dagger millimeter by millimeter deeper into Roel’s stomach, causing blood to spurt out yet again.
