“I can’t take this anymore!” The girl beside Cohen screamed in distress.
Scarlett’s eyes were filled with a little doubt at the scene unfolding before her.
Kodan did not retreat but pressed his attacks even harder. Grinding steel formally met for the first time as his sword violently crashed against Varian’s warhammer. Metallic screams and fiery sparks flew around them, and everyone narrowed their eyes and covered their ears.
Very quickly, the youths were shocked and excited to find that Kodan had knocked away Varian’s weapons with brutish strength. They thought it did not make sense that a heavy hammer in an overhead swing would be knocked away by a longsword.
Brendel’s heart jolted.
He had suspected Kodan was hiding his true strength to lure the dwarf to compete in strength. But what truly shocked him was Kodan’s following attack. Only Medissa and he saw a blue streak of light shine on the old man’s finger.
[Wind bullet!? Even though these fake rings could be found anywhere it’s too much of a coincidence, right?]
Brendel subconsciously looked at the Ring of the Wind Empress on his thumb.
He lost sight of the battle and missed Kodan closing in with an open palm. The old man lifted away Varian’s helmet and thrust his sword into the dwarf’s throat. When Brendel looked at the scene again, Varian had already disappeared in a flash of white light.
However, Kodan did not go uninjured. In order to succeed running through the dwarf with his sword, he had to suffer a punch from the latter.
Varian’s gloves were full of metallic edges. Not only did his punch damaged Kodan’s lungs, but it also ripped off the latter’s muscles and broke several ribs.
The old man’s body was finally at its limits and he could no longer hold on. He dug his sword into the ground and had to pant for a long while before he stood up straight again.
“Well done, mortal. You are allowed to select one of the cages and free the people in it, if you wish.” The mysterious voice boomed from the surroundings.
“I can only open one of your cages,” The old man huffed as he raised his voice to the group of youths, and he pointed at Jocah’s cage, “Jocah and the others in your cage. Get out. I want to hear how you involved in this mess later on.”
The people in Jocah’s cage were silent as the door swung open. The youths were separated into two groups and caught at different timings. It seemed like Kodan only rescued them in order to investigate the cause of this situation, and he did not intend to take on another challenge.
But everyone also knew that the old man no longer had the capability of continuing to do so.
Although Maher and Cohen frequently quarreled with each other, the youths had a tight bond. They felt that it was difficult to accept this decision and simply stood there in confusion. However, they ultimately knew they were powerless against their fate.
