Ryker did not even bother to look at those documents.
With a slightly displeased expression, he said, “President Zeigler, I will advise Edgar to tone it down, but he’s not the only one responsible, what with such frequent appearances of the black-robed man.”
“If you want to blame someone, you should go look for Skylar and those Black Copper Robes…”
He turned to leave after finishing his words without waiting for Zion’s response.
Looking at Ryker’s retreating back, Zion stood rooted to the spot for quite some time before he started heaving in outrage.
“Insolent! How insolent! How dare he speak to me like that?” exclaimed Zion as he slammed the table furiously. In his heart, he knew that he was only the president of the Warriors Alliance in name and held no real power.
Hence, there was no way he would dare to seek out Skylar and those Black Copper Robes himself.
In a very secluded secret room at the Deragon residence, dried-out corpses lay all around Edgar. Cold light emanated from his body. The corpses were people who died after having their powers absorbed.
Ryker had ordered his men to abduct people for Edgar’s cultivation! Previously, he thought that doing this was beneath him, yet he was now very supportive of Edgar using this method.
Edgar had put in much effort in those three months. He had currently reached Top Level Martial Arts Marquis!
Such ascension speed was exceptionally rare in the martial arts world. It was all thanks to the spirit in his body. Otherwise, no matter how talented Edgar was, he would not have been able to progress so quickly.
It’s time for me to seek the chance to get to the level of Greater Martial Arts Marquis. If I reach that level, I doubt anyone will be able to face off against me in the whole martial arts world…
Edgar had a cold smirk on his face.
Breaking through to Greater Martial Arts Marquis took more than mere cultivation. Even Gilbert was stuck at Martial Arts Marquis for more than a decade and could not get to the level of Greater Martial Arts Marquis.
Such a breakthrough in cultivation level was dependent on luck and circumstances. It would be a leap into a wholly different realm.
No one could foresee when and what it would take for an individual to reach Greater Martial Arts Marquis.
One might even be able to achieve it in one’s sleep. After undergoing the breakthrough, one’s physical body would be remolded and significantly strengthened. Not only that, one’s spiritual sense and control over the things in the world would reach new heights!
Because of that, the higher the cultivation level, the harder it would be to break through.
There was a possibility of failure if one were to do it forcefully. In the event that this happened, the cultivator would lose all their cultivation and become an ordinary person.
It was not uncommon for a martial artist to take his own life due to not being able to stand living a life as an unremarkable human being after failing to break through.
“I wonder where Jagoan is. He may be my ticket to breaking through…”
As Edgar’s eyes focused on a spot, waves of murderous intent rolled off his body.
He yearned to kill Jagoan with his own hands. After being thwarted by Jagoan again and again, Edgar hated the latter to the core.
Right at that moment, Ryker entered the room. He could not help but shiver at the murderous intent that Edgar was emanating. Ever since Edgar became possessed by the spirit, Ryker felt that he was no longer like the son he had once known.
“Edgar, Zion asked us to stop what we are doing,” said Ryker.
“Stop?” Edgar snickered. “I’m reaching the level of Greater Martial Arts Marquis. In the future, I will become a Martial Arts Saint. The Deragon family will become the most powerful family in the martial arts world. It’s impossible for me to stop!”
Ryker was moved by Edgar’s resolution.
He had a look of excitement and anticipation as he gushed, “That’s right. The Deragon family will rise once more and become the most powerful family!”
“I need to find Jagoan. I can’t be at ease until he ceases to exist.”
After he said that, he exited the secret room.
Edgar knew that he had to find Jagoan and kill him to resolve his inner turmoil. Only then could he focus on breaking through without any hindrance.
Ryker did not stop him. Instead, he went to the dungeons. It seemed like Beatrice was about to suffer another round of merciless beating.
