Rowan gritted his teeth hatefully, but there was nothing he could say at that moment. Jagoan had shot him a look earlier, and he could tell that Jagoan wanted him to keep his composure and stop going against Jagoan in case anything changed.
Jagoan’s earlier decision was beneficial to them, so even if Rowan felt like he was about to explode from the anger and that he wanted to run into a wall, he had to compose himself and bear with it.
In another five minutes, all the bets were placed, and the betting area closed down.
There was a faint purple glow from the center of the stage.
Seeing the glow, everyone held their breaths. More of the light condensed, slowly forming a massive figure. It was a massive snake with three heads, its scales having various special symbols.
Jagoan raised an eyebrow and mumbled, “It’s a three-headed silver python.”
Most three-headed silver pythons lived in first-grade worlds, but a few of them existed in second-grade worlds. Most of those in attendance could recognize it at a glance.
After a brief silence, the crowd started to speak again.
“I can’t believe it’s a three-headed silver python. I thought it’d be something I wouldn’t recognize. Three-headed silver pythons aren’t easy to deal with! They’re only slightly weaker than purple-feathered beasts but not by much. The python’s defenses are shocking. Even his natural-born technique is at the upper ultimate god realm. This might even end up as a draw.”
“This will be hard. I thought that Jagoan would win, but the beast is a three-headed silver python! If the situation was the same as the last battle, they would have a very good chance of winning. However, this is different. They already lost one person before they even started fighting! Even if they started fighting, they won’t all be on the same page. If this continues, the chances of them winning will probably only be at forty percent!”
The three-headed silver python’s three heads were high up in the air. Its scales had an electric glint to them as its six eyes coldly observed everyone. Other than Jagoan, the rest of them had frowns on their faces.
Jagoan turned to look at Rowan, saying seriously, “Make sure you fully support me later! If the others don’t listen, just kill them!”
Rowan nodded emphatically. Both of them realized they would have to do everything they could to win this.
Compared to the other anxious participants, Jagoan was much calmer. He looked up and appraised the three-headed silver python as if he was thinking about something.
While everyone held their weapons tightly, Jagoan slowly walked toward the python. The others exchanged looks with each other, and Rowan’s lips twitched. He wanted to mock Jagoan, but he held back when he remembered Jagoan’s warning look.
“He’s actually serious! I thought he was just joking, but it looks like he’s genuinely planning on facing the beast alone! Do you think he knows how terrifying the three-headed silver python is?”
“Who knows if he does or doesn’t? He’s never been one to go against his word. Everything he’s said he’d do, he’d do it. He might look like a braggart, but he does stay true to his word.”
Nymm let out a sigh of relief when he saw the scene.
He had thought that Jagoan would suddenly change his mind after seeing the three-headed silver python. Even if he did that, there would be nothing they could do. They would have lost out on the best chance!
Jagoan narrowed his eyes. “This guy is getting more interesting. I don’t know what’s going on in his head. He clearly knows it’s dangerous, but he insists on going forward! It’s suicidal, but he’s jumping right in. Does he just not care about dying, or is he just wilfully ignorant?”
At that moment, even Jagoan was confused. He could not tell what Jagoan’s plan was. Nonetheless, Jagoan did not go against his word, which was beneficial to them.
