Amman was just as surprised at seeing Veronica, but before he recovered his composure, the latter spoke again:
“Your Eminence, you have truly surprised me.”
“I have the same sentiments, Lady Veronica,” he replied with a grim expression.
“Indeed, it’s truly an eye-opener, the supposedly mighty Sword Saint of Ashes joining hands with someone from the Empire.” Andesha glanced at her left arm, finding that Mephisto’s attack was more deadly than it appeared. There was a large wound on it, but she did not seem like she was hurting and merely continued: “Is the defeated dog’s memory so shallow that it has forgotten what the Empire did to it?”
Brendel’s eyes went to Mephisto to see his reaction, but the latter’s expression did not even change a little. It was as if he had not heard Andesha’s words at all.
The youth secretly nodded at Mephisto’s patience.

Bremdel nearly choked on his spit, recalling how Mephisto reacted to him earlier when they met for the first time.

Indeed, you’re certainly gifted, but you are still far away to be my match. The situation where I underestimated you will never happen again.”
Her finger moved to Veronica.
“You should work with me and kill her. That woman is known as the Goddess of Combat in the Empire, and if she dies, it would be a considerable blow to the Empire. Surely you understand this point?”
