Thea’s arm was struck by the lightning and ended up being mutilated.
She dropped the Malevolent Sword.
In the distance, Thomas watched with slightly furrowed brows. He did not want to step in. Even if he interrupted the fight, it was not assured that he would be able to defeat the Thunder King since he was weaker than Sky.
How could he stand against the Thunder King if even Sky was prudent in their battle?
Furthermore, Thea was stronger than him. However, seeing that Thea was about to lose the battle, he frowned and turned to the masked men behind him.
These people were his last resort. He had secretly recruited them recently, and their strength was beyond words.
At that moment, he planned to order them to rescue Thea.
Everyone was disposable in his grand schemes, except for Thea.
Just as the thought crossed his mind, Thea, who was on the battlefield, grew enraged. Her aura grew stronger, and her energy caused some of the rocks around her to be blasted away instantly.
She raised her hand and waved it in the air. The Malevolent Sword immediately flew into her hands. Even though her arm was bleeding, she was still able to firmly hold onto the Malevolent Sword.
She looked at the Thunder King in the distance.
Her dark irises suddenly became red at this moment, and her pretty face gave off an expression cold enough to make one shiver.
Far away, a figure stood on a tree in a secluded area.
He was dressed in a white robe, with hair that was half black and half white.
The Omniscient Deity watched the fierce battle in the distance and was shocked by Thea’s potent energy.
He gasped, “Her energy is astoundingly strong! She’s already ascended past the peak of the Skyward Stairway’s Ninth Stair. Her energy is strong enough for her to be a Half–Saint…”
Above the Skyward Stairway’s Ninth Stair was the ninth rank. However, there were a few requirements that still needed to be fulfilled before becoming a ninth–ranked grandmaster. One would need to enter the pre–ninth rank first.
The rank had no official name because very few had reached it since ancient times.
According to what the Omniscient Deity could remember, very few could enter the ninth rank, even in the era when ancient martial artists were generally stronger.
He called the pre–ninth rank, the Half–Saint.
At that moment, Thea’s energy had broken through the Skyward Stairway’s Ninth Stair and entered the Half–Saint rank.
What an extraordinary woman. Although her own foundation isn’t strong, she forcibly reached such a high rank by using the blood in her body.
She may just be the most powerful person in most recent history…
The Omniscient Deity murmured. He was intrigued by Thea.
Meanwhile, the wrathful Thea was still on the battlefield. After her anger had reached its boiling point, she immediately entered a state of insanity.
At that moment, she lost control of all reason.
There was only one thought in her mind to kill. She wanted to kill the psychic before her.
“Hmph! You must have a death wish!” The Thunder King snorted coldly and generated more lightning bolts to attack Thea.
Since Thea’s energy had reached the rank of a Half–Saint, her attack power had grown to match the rank as well. Her speed increased to its absolute maximum and she was fast as lightning. Actually, it would be more accurate to say that she was faster than lightning itself.
Her body speedily slipped through the gaps between the bolts of electricity and she appeared in front of the Thunder King. Then, she thrust the Malevolent Sword at him.
“What?!” The Thunder King was stunned.
It never occurred to him that Thea would be faster than his ability to react to her attacks.
“Thea, show him mercy!” Thomas suddenly spoke from the distance.
His voice pulled Thea back to her senses, and her crimson pupils returned to normal. Her energy quickly dissipated.
She stopped just in time and struck the Thunder King’s body using the dull edge of her sword.
The Thunder King was sent flying instantly and crashed into the ruins. He was unable to get back on his feet.
