The next day, a sea of people crowded the martial arts arena. They were filled with anticipation for the battle between Skylar and Edgar.
Almost the entire martial arts world of Jadeborough was present at the scene. A large number of them were hoping that Skylar could win the battle. After all, Warriors Alliance still disapproved of Edgar’s brutality.
Soon, Skylar arrived at the martial arts arena with five Black Copper Robe warriors. He regarded the battle with great importance as it would secure his position in the martial arts world of Jadeborough.
As it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, he swore to go all out.
Edgar, too, brought several experts of the Deragon family to the martial arts arena. The originally lively martial arts arena instantly fell into pin-drop silence following his appearance.
Many people felt a deep sense of fear surge within them at the sight of Edgar.
Looking at the crowd’s attitude toward him, Edgar raised the corners of his lips. The crowd’s fear of him was what he liked the most.
Suddenly, a sharp voice rang out from the crowd, “Edgar’s a b*stard! We must end him today!”
Everyone instantly turned toward the direction of the voice. The person initially wanted to flee the scene after shouting those words. Unfortunately, he was caught by the crowd’s gaze before he could do that.
It was a teenager with a boyish face.
“You’re courting death!” Edgar narrowed his eyes and unleashed his murderous intent.
There was no way he would endure such a provocation in front of so many people. He raised his hand as he spoke. Intense martial energy filled the air and suppressed the teenage child.
The crowd promptly dodged as they felt the aura. Horror shone brightly in the teenager’s eyes.
When the martial energy approached the teenager, it was suddenly blocked by an aura.
“Edgar, he’s but a child. How could you do that? Are you even a man?”
It was Astrid who stepped forward slowly at that precise moment.
Fernando didn’t let her leave the Gunderson residence at her will. However, it was the battle between Skylar and Edgar that day. Overwhelmed by curiosity, she ran off to the arena.
She wanted to know what kind of battle would erupt between the two Greater Martial Arts Marquises. Being a highly talented person, she wanted nothing more than to achieve the Greater Martial Arts Marquis level.
When Edgar saw Astrid stand out from the crowd, a smile immediately crept on his grim face.
“It’s you, Ms. Gunderson. I haven’t seen you for days, and you’re getting prettier now.” He flashed her a devilish smirk.
Edgar used to be fond of Astrid. Unfortunately, a gifted person like him didn’t have the current achievements he had back then.
Since he was not as powerful as her, he didn’t dare to confess his love for her. But things were different now. The whole martial arts world in Jadeborough had bowed to him, and he felt immensely proud of himself.
Astrid’s eyes were filled with disgust when she saw his look. However, the man was not aware of that and stepped forward, approaching her.
“Ms. Gunderson, being the first talented woman in Jadeborough martial arts world, I’m afraid you’re the only person worthy of me. Do you know why I haven’t made a move against the Gundersons until now? It’s all because of you. I’m obsessed with your beauty.” Edgard went forward to pull Astrid’s hand in front of the crowd.
Astrid’s expression immediately changed. She couldn’t help but take a few steps back instinctively.
“Edgar, look at your monstrous look now. Does someone like you still deserve to like me? I feel sick when I see you. Please don’t come near me anymore,” she mocked him nonchalantly.
The smile on Edgar vanished at her words.
“You’re asking for death!”
His expression changed without a sign. It wasn’t so long ago that he claimed he liked Astrid, yet his eyes were filled with murderous intent then, looking as though he wanted to palm-strike the woman to death at any time.
