Jasper merely snorted at Ambrose’s aggressive retaliation. He also put his palms out, striking the air and releasing a blow that met Ambrose halfway.
The rough torrent of air sent Ambrose staggering backward, and he would have toppled to the ground had he not gotten his balance in time. He inhaled sharply and tasted copper in his mouth.
Fortunately, his retaliation had given Sasha and the others time to escape. Matthew pulled them out of the crossfire while Tiger and his men charged forward, surrounding them and escorting them out of the villa.
Jasper roared furiously when he saw that his blow had not landed. “I’ll kill those who get in my way!”
He put his hands out once again and aimed his attack at Ambrose. There was no hiding his murderous intent this time, and it looked like he had decided to kill Ambrose on the spot.
At that moment, Matthew and Tyson moved at the same time. Matthew dragged Ambrose out of the way while Ambrose blocked Jasper’s deadly blow, then dueled with him. Tyson was considered a strong fighter, but Jasper had beaten him with just a few techniques.
Matthew frowned. Jasper was much more powerful than they had anticipated. None of them here would be able to take him down even if they combined forces.
Thankfully, Matthew’s men rushed over to take on Jasper, buying Matthew time to soothe the furious and tangled-up Qi in Ambrose‘s body. Then, he took out a pill and had Ambrose swallow it, thereby relieving him of the effects of his internal injuries.
Meanwhile, Jasper merely scanned the crowd Matthew had brought with him and scoffed, “Were you hoping for strength in numbers? As if I would be taken down by the useless likes of you! I’ll say this one last time, get out of my way, or die! Don’t say I didn’t offer to spare you!”
Everyone was clamoring In the living room.
They knew better than to mess with the Damron Family from Bainbridge. More importantly, Jasper had been under the tutelage of the Martial Emperor. There was no one here who could possibly take him on and survive. It would be a suicide move to challenge him now or even try to stop him from moving forward.
Victor stood forward and snapped, “You and the rest of the Damron Family all think you’re so great. You were the ones who killed the head of the Albright Family! We refuse to put up with your antics any longer!”
He then turned to look at the men on his side. “Boys, we can’t back off just because some casanova prince from the Damron Family threatened us! If word of it gets out, we can never show our faces on the streets again!”
This boosted the morale of the other men who had come close to giving up and turning their backs on the fight.
One of the men shouted, “If you want to get the girl, Jasper, you’ll have to go through me!”
Jasper burst into laughter and sneered, “Fine, then. I’ll just have to kill you first!”
As he said this, he hurtled toward the man.
The man looked grim as he took a deep breath and put his hands out, pushing the air before him In hopes of landing a blow on Jasper. However, Jasper scoffed and pushed the air back against the man’s palms.
A loud crack filled the air as the man’s arms broke from the impact.
Jasper did not stop after that. He regained his stance and dealt another blow of air at the man’s chest.
Those who were watching held their breath. If Jasper landed this blow, the man’s organs would burst from the impact, and he would die on the spot!
When the blow was but a fraction away from landing, another figure dashed over to his fallen comrade’s side and tried to push Jasper’s blow back. He staggered backward, but not before he grabbed the man and pulled him out of the way, saving his life.
Everyone was shocked when they saw that the man who had intervened was none other than Matthew himself!
