No one managed to catch a glimpse of what had happened. Even figures such as Thomas and Sky could not understand what had happened.
They could only vaguely see James slashing with his sword. Then, a sword light glimmered before slicing the Spirit Master’s sword in half and the Spirit Master was sent flying.
The arena was dead silent.
Everyone held their breath as they looked at James who was standing before the rubble. At that moment, James’ sword had already returned to its sheath.
In the distance, Jackson asked, “Delainey, did you manage to see James’ sword technique?”
Delainey shook her head and said, “I couldn’t see anything…”
Stunned, Jackson said, “I didn’t expect him to become this strong. The Spirit Master was a renowned figure even two centuries ago. Back in those days, no one stood a chance against him. I never expected him to face defeat…”
On the battlefield….
The Spirit Master slowly crawled up from the rubble.
At that moment, his hair was disheveled, and there were blood traces on his lips. He was in a sorry state.
He stood up and looked at James.
Stunned, he asked, “What sword technique is this?”
James smiled faintly and said, “This is One…”
It was one of the Polaris Sword Art, an amalgamation of a thousand sword techniques. This bizarre sword technique was different from the Fourteen Heavenly Swords. The only similarity they shared was that they were extremely terrifying
“One?” The Spirit Master froze. “What sword technique is this?”
James said, “It’s a sword technique I created…”
Upon hearing this, the Spirit Master smiled. “I concede defeat!”
Then, he turned to leave the battlefield
James stood in the middle of the battlefield and scanned his surroundings, asking. “Is there anyone else who wants to challenge me?”
Everyone fell silent. No one dared to step forward.
If even someone like the Spirit Master was defeated, how would they stand a chance against James?
Everyone looked at one another, but no one stepped forward. Even Thomas did not move an inch. To him, information on the dragon’s whereabouts was the most important.
If James emerged victorious, he would obtain the information nonetheless. Besides, James demonstrated terrifying strength. Even if he entered the arena, he might not stand a chance against him.
“If there’s no one else, the dragon’s blood and information on the dragon’s whereabouts will go to me,” James’ voice boomed.
Upon hearing this, everyone frowned.
Dragon blood would allow one to attain immortality, so they were reluctant to give up just like that. However, James was too powerful. Challenging him could amount to certain death.
Soon, ten minutes passed. However, no one dared step forward.
James appeared before the First Blood Emperor and looked at him, saying, “Since there aren’t any other challengers, can you hand over the dragon blood and information on the dragon’s whereabouts to me?”
“There’s no need to rush things,” The First Blood Emperor said. “Since no one else dares challenge you, you’re now theoretically the most powerful individual in the world. However, you haven’t yet come to blows with members of the Blood Race.”
“Oh?” James looked at him and asked, “Why? Do you plan to try your luck?”
“How would I dare to?” The First Blood Emperor said smilingly, “I admit that I’m no match for you, so I won’t be the one challenging you. If you defeat the challenger, I will give you the dragon’s blood and information.”
Clack! Clack! Clack!
