It would be more accurate to say that he only managed a few feeble cries instead of saying that he tried their best.
After a few minutes, Tobias casually threw the martial artist to the ground. The martial artist was still alive, but he was aging rapidly.
In a matter of minutes, his hair had turned white. He seemed to be in his fifties, but now he looked like he was in his seventies or eighties.
Many people were in a state of shock as they witnessed this scene.
Tobias, on the other hand, had a sinister grin on his face. His power was growing quickly. The sensation of his increasing strength was quite thrilling and amazing.
Tobias noticed James, who was lying lifeless on the ground in the adjacent cell.
“James…” His expression darkened.
He soon walked out of the cell and approached James.
“Tobias, what are you trying to do?” Bennett, who was sitting on the ground, said sternly.
“I’ll deal with you after I absorb James’ power,” Tobias said indifferently, casting a glance at Bennett.
“You…” Bennett was enraged.
He was itching to get up and fight. However, he could not even move his body.
Jackson joined in, his voice weak, “Tobias, don’t do anything stupid.”
Callan did not say anything. He was still trying to access his acupoints. Even though much time had passed, he was still unable to forcibly unblock his acupoints because his power could not compete with James’ True Heavenly Energy.
Tobias got closer to James. He looked at James, who was on the ground with blood at the corner of his mouth and dying.
“James, you never expected yourself to be reduced to this state one day, huh?” he said, stepping on James with his leg and looking down at him.
He raised his hand. A powerful burst of energy was released from his palm.
James’ body was immediately yanked up. He then pressed his palm against James’ head.
At that moment, James could clearly feel the True Energy in his body dwindling. His expression changed.
“You…Tobias. What are you doing? Stop, right now…”
Tobias fervently absorbed James’ True Energy using the Great Law of Absorption.
James had an overly powerful and excessive amount of True Energy, so Tobias’ True Energy was increasing rapidly at this moment. His body swelled up in an instant, like a balloon.
“Damn it!” As he witnessed this, Callan was filled with rage as well.
Regardless, he could not move as his acupoints were struck.
“Argh…” James cried out in agony.
The Great Law of Absorption was unsettling.
While James’ True Energy was diminishing, Tobias’ power was growing exponentially.
This continued for about ten minutes. In roughly ten minutes, James’ power was completely drained.
Tobias laughed maniacally as he casually threw him to the ground.
“Haha! James! You are now disabled! James Caden does not exist in this world from now on!”
After that, he reached out his hands. Then, he delivered a few strikes.
They landed on James’ limbs. The tendons in James’ hands and legs snapped in an instant.
James immediately passed out from the intense pain. It was uncertain whether he was still alive.
After incapacitating James, Tobias was in a good mood.
Looking at Callan and Bennett’s faces that were filled with rage, he said nonchalantly, “I’ll absorb the others’ power first, then I’ll return to absorb yours.”
Tobias did not waste any time. He knew this was Lucjan’s territory, so he had to move quickly.
If Lucjan appeared, such a great opportunity would be gone.
