Uriah was confused. He felt like he was listening to a complicated tongue twister.
“Let’s just say that when you fought Killer X, every attack was a prediction.* Jagoan stopped at this point, giving Uriah time to think.
Uriah immediately nodded to show that he understood what he was saying.
Every attack Uriah launched on Killer X was a prediction of Killer X’s behavior. For example, when Uriah saw that Killer X was about to dodge, he attacked her first.
However, Uriah never managed to hit Killer X with any of his attacks. Instead, he was repeatedly wounded, leaving him covered in cuts after the fight.
“Your anticipated attack failed to hit Killer X because she predicted what you predicted,” Jagoan continued saying.
When Uriah heard that, something instantly clicked.
“And that’s what happened when Killer X attacked me. She predicted what I predicted, but I thought further ahead. I predicted what she predicted I would predict, so I knew what she would do and found an opening. And as you can see, she ‘ran’ into my hand as I subdued her.”
Jagoan smiled once he finished speaking.
It was not some abstruse truth, nor was it difficult for him to do.
However, while Uriah could understand, he would never have been able to do that in battle. Otherwise, it would have been Killer X who had been wounded instead of him.
“It feels so complicated. Predictions…” Shania felt like she was listening to some gobbledygook.
Quentin was also confused. He almost dozed off.
Uriah was motivated.
He looked at Jagoan with admiration and said, “I didn’t expect you to predict what she predicted you would predict! I‘m in level one. The assassin is level two, and you’re level three!”
Jagoan waved his hand to show that it was not a big deal.
However, Uriah immediately added, “What if the female assassin was level four and had predicted what she predicted you would predict she would predict?”
“Then she would have dodged my attempts and killed Ms. Lewis,” Jagoan said slowly.
Shania’s expression changed instantly. Quentin’s expression became ghastly too.
However, Jagoan added, “But she wasn’t that good and didn’t think that far, so I defeated her,” Jagoan said casually.
Hearing this, Shania exhaled gently as she was relieved. Quentin’s expression looked a little better too.
Uriah thought about it and asked, ‘It’s too hard. If this goes on, the predictions will be never-ending… I’m sure you have a better way of cracking these predicted attacks, Commander Jagoan…”
“Yes,” Jagoan nodded.
“What is it?”
Uriah asked excitedly, feeling like he was in touch with some supreme being.
“Just be faster, stronger, and more resolute than her. No need to predict or think. Strength will conquer everything. No method or skill works in front of absolute power.”
Jagoan’s words drove Uriah into silence.
“Let’s watch the gala. Tonight’s shows were specially prepared for us,” Shania quickly interrupted.
She was going to fall asleep if they continued predicting.
Quentin said with a chuckle, “Anyway, Killer X is caught and dead. We don’t have to worry about that anymore. Hahaha…”
