Scott trembled, his smile frozen as a blinding flash left him bewildered. Before he could comprehend what was going on, the light had vanished."What just happened? What's going on?" Panic gripped him as his heart raced. He felt a chill on his neck. When he touched it, his hand was covered in blood.Why was there blood? How was that possible? His thoughts were interrupted as the world around him spun.A jarring thud of something hitting the ground caught his attention. In the next second, Scott was startled to see the back of his own body from the ground.He was wearing a suit and standing tall, but there was no head on his shoulders. He had turned into a headless body."Where's my head? Where is it?" Scott tried to scream, but there was no sound. All he could do was watch as his headless body fell to the ground. Darkness enveloped his vision, and he succumbed to unconsciousness.Just like that, Scott was dead. His head had been severed in one swift move by Dustin.Everything
Scott's eyes twitched as he took a few steps back.Acold sweat dripped down his body, and his hair stood on end. At that moment, he finally realized the severity of the situation. Dustin's strength far exceeded his expectations. For Dustin to take down the Undead Hexcasters with a single move showed that he wasn't just some divine master but a true grandmaster martial artist! Fuck! How could an unknown kid be this powerful?"Hey, pal, I appreciate your skills. I'm giving you a chance to rise to the top now." Anders, who had been watching coldly, suddenly spoke, "As long as you're willing to join me, I can overlook today's events. "Not only that, I'll get you into the military and give you a high position. From then on, everything will be under your control!""What?" Scott's expression changed instantly upon hearing this. He hastily said, "Sir Anders, this bastard is a ticking time bomb. Keeping him around would be asking for endless trouble!"After all, Scott and Dustin had
In an instant, everything changed. Elysia's icy breath sent chills down the spine. Everything within 30 feet became solid ice, and even Dustin became an ice sculpture."Haha! Frozen solid! This bastard is a goner!" Scott laughed, clearly enjoying the spectacle.After Dustin pummeled Cooper with a punch, he couldn't help but feel a bit shaken. Now, witnessing his opponent frozen, his confidence soared."True to Elysia's reputation, her tricks are something else." The astonished crowd noted.It was downright terrifying to freeze a martial artist master with a breath."Die!" Elysia, wide-eyed and merciless, threw a punch at Dustin's chest. Freezing was her ultimate move; anyone she froze would shatter when hit.An explosion echoed as Elysia's fist hit Dustin's chest. The ice shards scattered, but to Elysia's surprise, Dustin remained intact, not a tear in his clothes."H-How is this possible?" Elysia's eyes widened, struggling to believe her mystical arts did not affect Dustin."G
A deafening explosion reverberated through the air. Dustin and Cooper both threw a punch, creating shockwaves of energy. Cooper was sent flying, like he was hit by a train, soaring over 30 feet before crashing down.Before fully landing, his body suddenly burst with a resounding "pop," like a balloon, transforming into a gruesome shower of flesh and blood. His once robust physique now became a downpour of blood and flesh, with bones pulverized beyond recognition.The scene was akin to shoving a bomb into his belly.Following the explosion, an abrupt hush enveloped the entire area. The onlookers gawked, looking in disbelief and astonishment. Was Cooper, famed for his impenetrable skin and iron bones, just annihilated by a single punch?"H-How is this even possible? Cooper ... he turned into freaking dust!""Damn! One punch, and Cooper's gone. Who the heck is this brat?"After a brief moment of stunned silence, chaos erupted in the crowd. Spectators stared at Dustin as if he
"Those who stand in your way will meet their end? You watched too many dramas! Do you think you're some kind of hero? Pathetic!" Scott jeered, smirking. "Cooper, go entertain him. Just don't kill him; Sir Anders might still have a use for him."Cooper, a powerhouse halfway to becoming a grandmaster with his metallic physique, considered dealing with Dustin an easy task."Got it!" Cooper nodded, then confidently strode forward. In his eyes, Dustin was already a lost cause."Today's your unlucky day, bastard. If you cripple yourself now, I might spare you. Otherwise, you'll wish you were dead once I make a move!" Cooper warned with a booming voice."Get lost, or die!" Dustin retorted, unfazed."Hmph! Fool. it looks like you need a taste of my power!" Cooper snorted, launching himself like a cannonball, heading straight for Dustin.Given his physical prowess, that impact could break not only a person but even the bones of a bull into fragments. This was his preferred offensive t
"Don't worry, Sir Anders. I got this." Scott grinned. "Once we capture this bastard, I'll torture the Dew Balm formula out of him!."Anders hummed noncommittally. "This guy is not ordinary. Regular guards might not cut it. Are your people up for the task?""Don't worry, Sir Anders. I'm prepared to handle this bastard," Scott assured, clapping his hands.Soon, a man and a woman stepped forward from behind Scott. The man was in a black tee. He stood strong and towered over six feet, muscles flexing. Unlike a regular human, a subtle rumble came from him with every breath.The woman had a mask covering half her face, her lips showing a bluish tint, and her eyes purple. She wore a black robe, giving off a creepy and menacing vibe."Sir Anders, these two are exceptional individuals I brought. His name is Cooper Stiff—bulletproof and blade-resistant, unfazed by fire or water. "Plus, he's one tough cookie, unafraid of pain, and stares at death in the face. You're not getting away if
Anders's smile slowly faded and expressed his displeasure. "Who dares invade my territory?" he sternly questioned."The intruder's identity is unknown, but they're tough! Our guys inside the manor couldn't handle it. Sir, we need backup now!" a guard reported, respectfully bowing."Serious firepower? How many troops are we talking about?" Anders narrowed his eyes."Just one person," the guard replied."What?" Anders scowled. "You're telling me you couldn't handle one person? What good are you all?""We messed up, sir. Our apologies!" The guard hung his head in shame.They should have had this under control with almost a hundred guards in the manor, and they were all elite warriors. But the intruder was exceptional, demolishing everything in his way, unstoppable in his drive."Sir Anders, whoever this intruder is, we can't let them off easy. Anyone daring to trespass on Jadeleaf Manor needs to pay with his blood!" Scott, fueled with anger, declared."Let's go. It's time to
Anders organized an exclusive gathering with two purposes—to win over them and gather intelligence. "It's an honor to have you all at Jadeleaf Manor. Let's raise our glasses to a toast." He grinned, lifting his glass for a round of toasts.Seeing this, the attendees, filled with respect, promptly stood up, toasting in return. After all, the man in their midst was the God of War, the mightiest warrior in Dragonmarsh, and he was also the pride of the Moseys.Anders was a figure who naturally commanded respect wherever he went, and today's warm reception pleasantly surprised them."Sir Anders, we're family. Your words make it sound like we're strangers. "Besides, if anyone should be toasting, it should be us to you. You are the backbone of the Mosey family!" Scott, seizing the moment, raised his glass passionately."Absolutely! Sir Anders, your combat skills are unparalleled, a real asset to the Moseys!" The crowd joined in with praises."Haha! Alright, let's drink!" Anders lau
Amidst the chaos, Dustin kneeled beside Lana's motionless form, lost in thoughts. Suddenly, approaching footsteps brought him back to the present.Dustin gazed up to find Matteo, accompanied by others, rushing toward them urgently. The gunshots had alerted the Camron family.Realizing Lana's prolonged absence, Matteo swiftly sensed trouble and efficiently rallied a group for support. However, upon arriving and witnessing the grim scene, he stood frozen in disbelief as if struck by lightning.Stumbling forward, he reached Lana's motionless form. After confirming the grim reality, he released a gut-wrenching, mournful cry. "Lana! My daughter, Lana!"Matteo collapsed beside her, and his cries filled with sorrow. Since his wife's passing, he and Lana had been each other's pillars of strength. He had envisioned witnessing Lana's wedding, rejoicing in her motherhood journey, and holding his grandchildren. But today, unexpectedly, marked a farewell to the living and the departed. In
