Over ten auras gathered, causing the entire palace to rumble and shake as if it was about to collapse from the overwhelming energy.
Jagoan’s body shone as he pushed his Golem Body to the limit. He had also activated and enveloped his body with the Power of Dragons.
“Renee, seize this opportunity and leave this place with Howard. You wouldn’t be of help even if you stayed,” Jagoan said to Renee with an undertone.
“I don’t want to leave, Jagoan. I want to stay here and fight alongside you until the end.” Tears brimmed in Renee’s eyes as she shook her head.
“Jagoan, it’ll be an honor for me to die alongside you. I’m not leaving too.” Howard shook his head as well.
“You two will only distract me by remaining here. There’s no guarantee that I’ll die. Once the two of you leave, I can fight without any concern. Then, I’ll have a chance to escape,” Jagoan uttered in a deep voice.
Howard and Renee fell into deep thought after listening to him.
Perhaps Jagoan is right. We will only weigh him down by staying here.
Sensing their silence, Jagoan added, “Howard, I’ll leave Renee in your care after you two get out of this place. Send her to Medicine God Sect.”
“Don’t worry, Jagoan. I’ll see to that if we can get out of here.” Howard nodded affirmatively.
Still, Renee was reluctant to leave. She didn’t want to abandon Jagoan and let him face the fight alone.
“Renee, Mr. Deragon and Lizbeth are at Medicine God Sect. When you meet them, do not divulge any information to them, especially my circumstances. I don’t want them to be worried,” Jagoan reminded her.
She bit her lip and nodded firmly.
Only then could Jagoan finally relax.
He swept his reddened gaze across the crowd as his spiritual energy continued to intensify to resist the pressure they exerted on him.
“Every one of you who makes a move against me should bear this in mind. As long as I survive this predicament, I’ll make sure all of you pay the price for your action.” Jagoan’s frosty gaze glinted menacingly.
Everyone felt chills traveling down their spines when they met his eyes.
“Hmph! Quit talking big, Jagoan. If you’re able to survive when so many of us are ganging up on you, Jadeborough’s martial arts world will become a laughingstock.” Zion snorted coldly.
“In that case, bring it on.”
Unexpectedly, Jagoan had taken the first move. His body trembled, and his Dragonslayer Sword appeared in his hand instantaneously. The next second, he launched a wave of powerful sword energy at Zion.
He understood the concept of crippling his enemies effectively by eliminating their leader. Besides, he also took the initiative to create a chance for Renee and Howard to flee.
Zion didn’t dare to take Jagoan’s terrifying sword energy lightly. He immediately unleashed his martial energy, prompting his body to be covered in a dark glow.
At that moment, the black ball on Zion’s body began emitting blinding lights.
The sword energy crashed against Zion, knocking him backward by a few steps upon impact.
The layer of dark glow on his body also dimmed a little after he got hit.
The current Jagoan, wielding the Dragonslayer Sword, with reddened eyes and overflowing aura, gave off the impression of a divine being.
“Howard, take Renee with you and leave,” Jagoan said to Howard.
Hearing that, Howard stepped forward, grabbed Renee, and dashed toward the outside of the palace.
“Stop them!” Zion bellowed after noticing their escape.
He could not allow Howard and Renee to escape because no outsider could be informed of what transpired at that place.
Receiving Zion’s command, two members of respectable families leaped at once in Howard and Renee’s direction to capture them.
“You’re courting death!” Jagoan narrowed his eyes.
Immediately afterward, the Dragonslayer Sword gleamed and shot out a razor-edged arc of light.
Following the flash of brilliant light, the stench of blood wafted in the air.
The two members of respectable families were severed in half by the strike from Jagoan’s sword, and the floor was bestrewn with blood and internal organs, forming a bloody and gruesome scene.
