Meanwhile, at the Deragon residence in Jadeborough, Edgar frowned when he saw no sign of Orb returning. “What’s going on? It’s been a whole day. Is this how Orb does things? Can’t he handle such a trivial matter?”
“Could it be that something happened?” A sense of unease crept into Ryker’s heart.
“Nothing will happen, Dad… Orb is a Seventh Level Martial Arts Marquis. A small sect like Medicine God Sect is no match for such an advanced-phase Martial Arts Marquis. I’m only afraid that someone is intervening and spoiling our plan. After all, many sects have been eyeing Medicine God Sect.”
Edgar was worried that someone might be interfering with his plan.
Although most of the sects and prestigious families in the Jadeborough martial arts world had submitted to the Deragons, he knew they were not sincerely subservient.
It was within his expectation that someone would try to ruin his plan secretly.
“Shall we send someone over to check on it?” Ryker asked.
“Let’s wait a little longer first.” Edgar decided to wait after checking his watch.
At the same time, a terrifying force spurred into the air in the secret room of the Warriors Alliance. If not for the barrier of the secret room, the force would have caused a great stir in the city.
Skylar slowly opened his eyes and curled his lips as he felt the unprecedented power in his body.
The power of Greater Martial Arts Marquis is indeed extraordinary…
A bright gleam shone in his eyes as he clenched his fists.
He walked out of the secret room and headed straight to the hall.
Upon seeing Skylar complete his cultivation, everyone in Warriors Alliance hurried forward and greeted, “Mr. Norton…”
“Where’s President Zeigler?” Skylar asked.
During the period he was in seclusion, he was oblivious to the things happening in the martial arts world of Jadeborough.
Seeing everyone lowering their heads at the mention of Zion and hesitating to speak, he felt a jolt in his heart and knew something must have happened to Zion.
His expression turned cold as he interrogated, “Speak. Where’s President Zeigler?”
Right after his words fell, one of the Warriors Alliance members stepped forward and explained everything that had happened.
His words stunned Skylar.
“How brazen Edgar is to have the thought of making the entire martial arts world of Jadeborough submit to him!” Skylar’s eyes glinted with chilling menace as he spoke.
“Mr. Norton, Mr. Deragon already appointed himself as the president of the alliance and asked all of us to listen to his family,” said one of the Warriors Alliance members.
“Since President Zeigler is dead, I’ll be promoted to president naturally. Just do as I say. Now, please summon all the Warriors Alliance members for a meeting,” Skylar ordered grimly.
“Mr. Norton, Edgar is now a Greater Martial Arts Marquis and shows no mercy. Many sects and prestigious families are afraid of him,” the Warriors Alliance member added.
“Hmph! He’s a Greater Martial Arts Marquis? Well, so am I!” At the end of his words, Skylar unleashed his aura, causing a miraculous phenomenon of thunder flashing.
“My goodness! Could it be that someone else achieved a breakthrough and became a Greater Martial Arts Marquis?”
“Look! It’s from the direction of the Warriors Alliance. Someone from the alliance must have entered the level of Great Martial Arts Marquis.”
“Who is it? Who has the ability to do that?”
People began to discuss and speculate at the sight.
It wasn’t long before numerous sects and prestigious families arrived at the Warriors Alliance. The Deragon family, too, received the news.
“Mr. Deragon, many sects and prestigious families have gone to the Warriors Alliance meeting. Some said that Old Mr. Deragon’s position is self-appointed and doesn’t take into account,” one of the servants in the Deragon residence hurriedly informed Edgar.
“How is this possible? Who’s so bold as to oppose us so openly?” Edgar was irked by the news.
“I’m not sure about that. But I heard someone within the Warriors Alliance has achieved a breakthrough and become a Greater Martial Arts Marquis. That’s why the sects and prestigious families are summoned for a meeting.” The servant shook his head.
