Brendel looked at Cullens regretfully.
It was true that he was completely suppressed by Veronica’s aura to the point where he could not move, but as Cullens approached him with each step, the Stats Windows on his retina were shuffling at a high speed.
– Character Stats.
– Planeswalker Card.
– Elemental Pool.
He stopped at a certain card, then smiled at Cullens. The latter looked puzzled as to why the youth still had the guts to smile, but Veronica immediately sensed something was off:
“What, this boy is— Cullens, retreat!”
She tried to warn him but she was a second too late. A white-golden flaming blade appeared out of thin air and floated in front of Brendel. This was the first time Brendel had ever activated this card.
The unfortunate Cullens who had the misfortunate to face the card stared fearfully at the sudden burst of Elemental power. He was unable to react in time because he never expected that Brendel was able to fight back under Veronica’s suppression.
The blade made from pure flames struck Cullens’s body directly, and he was flung back with such force that he spun in mid-air a dozen times before crashing heavily onto the wooden planks.
“Count Cullens!” The girl with twin golden ponytails exclaimed in astonishment.
Veronica’s beautiful eyebrows lifted slightly as she did not expect Brendel’s counterattack. She had initially been greatly displeased by Brendel’s temerity to wound her men and instantly sought to quash him.
When her hand reached out for her blade, the Azure Green, to draw it out, she faltered at the last moment as she realized what she had done.
She carried the title of Illustrious Sword Saint and was a commander of an army who participated in countless battles. On top of that, she was over a hundred years old. Bullying a youth who looked no older than twenty would hurt the dignity of the Kirrlutz Empire.
[But I cannot allow the Empire to be insulted—]
She raised her hand and spoke in an icy tone: “Capture this man!”
Veronica glared at Brendel emotionlessly and swung down her hand. The latter’s pressure lifted instantly as she spoke, while thirty-odd Imperial Knights who had followed her from behind rushed out.
[Even though a few of these Imperial Knights are not exactly worthy of the title, they should be able to defeat him even if he’s a Gold-ranker. The typical Aouine swordsmen are nothing more than rabble. I just need to suppress his Element power and any other tricks that he has if he tries to use them again.]
Brendel thought he was being underestimated when the pressure on him lifted. He took a step back to fall into a stance and pulled out his sword fully for the first time. The heavy ink-light blade glinted against the sunlight.
“T-that….. sword…..”Faena rasped in surprise.
But Rono’s yell drowned Faena’s voice: “Be careful, he has the Crimson Blessing!”
The young boy crawled up slowly
