In the eyes of others, Fabien was just an ill man who wasn’t worthy of his outstanding talent.
Based on their usual growth trajectory, he should be a master of both medicine and martial arts, an existence that no one could beat in the world.
One day, however, Freya overheard him quarreling with Master Heath. Even though she couldn’t hear what they were arguing, she could tell Master Heath was enraged.
After injuring Fabien with a single blow, Heath warned him that he would no longer acknowledge him as a disciple if he continued his obsession.
Despite not knowing what they were arguing about, everyone assumed that Fabien would be forgiven as long as he apologized for his mistakes because of how much Master Heath adored him. Instead, everyone was taken aback when Fabien publicly announced that he was severing ties with Master Heath.
After that, he stomped away, and no one ever heard from him again. It wasn’t until much later that someone discovered he was lurking in the Isle of Snakes, a forbidden place for living beings.
Although he was reprimanded by Freya, he did not present any look of gloominess.
Instead, he nodded with a smile. “Alright, alright. Let’s not talk about that old man. Speaking of which, why are you hunting my subordinates down?”
Hearing that question, she exuded a murderous aura. “Hah! Your subordinates killed a few innocent people, so I tried eliminating them before they could harm even more people.”
“Hmm? What happened?”
Hearing their master’s question, his subordinates hurriedly explained the whole incident.
After receiving their orders from Fabien a few days ago, they left the Isle of Snakes as quickly as possible to make their way to Bainbridge. However, they happened to bump into a few passersby.
When the passersby saw their female companions’ beauty, they became lustful and teased the two women. As they were cruel and merciless, Fabien’s subordinates killed those who tried to tease them.
Their act was unfortunately witnessed by Freya, who happened to pass by.
After that, she started chasing and hunting the five of them. Putting aside their capability of killing her, they dared not fight back as they knew she was their master’s junior.
On the other hand, Fabien did not demonstrate a significant reaction after hearing their narration.
They only killed some men! it’s not like they committed a major offense!
I’ll be furious if they don’t kill those jerks!
“Hey, Freya, they merely killed a few jerks. Regard them as punishing the evil and promoting the good, alright? Can’t you spare them, for my sake? I’m your senior, after all…”
After hearing that, she snickered at his plea. “Senior? A traitor is not worthy of mentioning those words. Anyway, I was on my way to find you, and these five people surely saved much of my time. You’ve betrayed the Unrivaled Swordsmen Sect, so you should return the Executioner’s Sword gifted to you by Master Heath!”
Freya’s request made Fabien shake his head. “I shall return the sword personally, but now is not the time. I have one more person to kill with that sword.”
“Hah! Traitor! If you’re not going to cooperate, I’m going to get it by myself! Anyway, I should eliminate any traitors on behalf of the Unrivaled Swordsmen Sect!”
Before she finished her sentence, she held her sword with both hands and slashed at him boldly.
Watching her actions, Fabien was shocked to find that Freya had mastered the art of the sword at such a young age.
Sure enough, there is no mediocre disciple under the guidance of the unrivaled swordsman.
Still, do you think that’s all you need to knock me down?
With that thought, he shifted sideways like a fallen leaf and swiftly avoided her attack.
On the other hand, she wasn’t even surprised when she missed her target. With a shake of her arm, she turned the blade around and aimed it at her senior. Then, she attacked him sideways.
Heh! He’d be cut in half if my blade slashed him!
Much to Freya’s dismay, Fabien merely tapped his feet and distanced himself from her instantly as if he could fly.
Her expression darkened as she stepped forward and continued swinging the knife wildly. No matter how she attacked, he managed to avoid her like a loach. There was no way she could hurt him.
