In a few short moments, Diante’s body was burnt to a complete crisp. When Paul saw that, his heart stopped. He almost cursed himself for being stupid.
How could he forget this?!
After being thoroughly burnt, the lightning receded and the sky was bright again. Paul did not care about anything else as he immediately rushed to the pile of ashes. He held back his disgust as he used his dagger to sift through it, looking for the blood essence stone.
The most important reason for killing Diante was the blood essence stone in Diante’s body. If such a valuable stone was scorched to crisp by his carelessness, then even Paul would feel emotional.
Thankfully, he was lucky enough that the blood essence stone actually managed to survive the lightning. It was covered by ashes. Paul finally calmed down!
There was pure silence outside the Blood Lake.
All of the Demon Spirit Beasts there widened their mouths in surprise. They could not believe what they saw.
Were they hallucinating?
Their king had been killed?
By a human at that?!
Mijas’ voice trembled as it said, “Didn’t the king say that his technique was already at the storm god rank? How did that brat beat the king? Could he be using a storm god rank technique as well? How?”
As it shouted that, Mijas’ voice was a little hoarse. It could not understand why everything that happened defied their expectations so much.
The king was so strong. Even when the king was not at full power, Diante was still far above a mere human.
That brat really was strong, but he should not have been able to compete with the king.
How could this be the result?
Besant looked at the shocked Mijas and sighed, “Who are you asking? Who do you think can answer you?!”
Quite a lot of warriors had gathered around Weinhord City’s transfer array toward the Demon Spirit Kingdom.
Those warriors were mostly from third-grade worlds, and a small portion of them was from second-grade worlds. Everyone gathered there, and they did not bother with each other initially. Warriors from second-grade worlds and warriors from third-grade worlds were not talking to each other at all.
Slowly, everyone there started to wonder who would be in the top three and obtain the rewards. Those discussions disturbed the short silence.
The warriors from second-grade worlds said that the first three places would definitely belong to them and that the third-grade worlds would not be able to get anything.
Meanwhile, the warriors from the third-grade world said that the warriors from the second-grade world only knew how to brag. They did not think of who was in the Demon Spirit Kingdom. With Paul there, no one would be able to take the first place away. With Paul there, even survival was a problem for the warriors from second-grade worlds.
Many arguments broke out, and none of them were willing to give in. The arguments got more and more intense. If not for the rules in place, they would have already been fighting each other.
A warrior from Golden Continent shouted, “Stop mentioning Paul! Is he a god? Do you think the warriors from third-grade worlds will be fine just because he’s there? Stop joking! No matter how strong Paul is, he’s still alone.”
