Freya became exhausted after a series of attacks, her sweat beaded on her forehead.
Seeing that, Fabien smiled. “Give up already, Freya. You have put in a lot of work practicing, but you are not yet my equal!”
Having trained under the same master, he was well aware of the pros and cons of the sword. Even though the sword was highly explosive and lethal, it was still a weapon that weighed one to two pounds. It required excessive physical exertion and lacked flexibility.
If his opponent faced off against someone as nimble as him, he would quickly wear them down physically.
Hearing Fabien’s warning, Freya merely sneered. “That’s not necessarily the case!”
As soon as she finished her sentence, the atmosphere around her changed instantly.
Her majestic sword skills exploded once again. With a determined gaze, she started attacking her senior.
“The same approach won’t kill me!” Then, he offered her a wry smile and shook his head.
Suddenly, Fabien’s expression changed drastically as he prepared to employ the same tactic to avoid her attacks.
He noticed the initially bulky sword instantly became flexible and swift in Freya‘s hands. Caught off guard, he barely avoided all her strikes.
With one hand on the ground, he did a few backflips to distance himself from her. “Mastered the ability to hold the sword as lightly as a feather?”
Instantaneously, a small cut appeared on his cheek. Before he could even react, the sword was aimed at him again.
Under the cold blades, he could only dodge sideways. He appeared to easily avoid them, but a closer inspection revealed that he was becoming increasingly out of breath.
Despite his knowledge of his junior’s abilities, Fabien could not withstand the swift and sharp speed of the sword.
I can’t be so passive anymore!
He avoided her attack once again after sighing inwardly. Then, as he stared at Freya’s sword, he slowly gathered his aura.
From this point on, he was going to start taking things seriously.
When she was about to launch another strike, his body floated. Under the dim lights, a superimposed shadow appeared behind him. He was using the Phantom Technique!
On the other hand, Freya was unreconciled. Since taking the Godly Emergence Pill Jagoan provided, she has not only increased her cultivation base but also learned to wield swords with the deftness of a feather. Her strength increased significantly as a direct result of that.
Still, she couldn’t beat Fabien at all.
Unable to knock him clown, she couldn’t bear to hold back anymore. Immediately, she activated her secret technique.
Feeling her nimbus surging, she grabbed the sword with one hand. She then gathered strong winds around her following the rise of her blade, fallen leaves drawn together by an invisible force.
In an instant, a vast vortex was formed.
Her secret technique was called the Meteor Technique.
At that moment, she swung her sword with such speed that the naked eye couldn’t keep up. Though Fabien was mentally prepared to dodge her strike, the sword still cut through his chest. Soon, the coldness of the blade continued to abate.
In the blink of an eye, the two trees that stood grounded in the courtyard slowly coHapsed.
In the meantime, Fabien looked down at his bleeding wound. However, he wasn’t upset at all. Instead, he looked at her with relief.
“I never expected you to improve this much, Freya…”
“Hah! I don’t need you to remind me of that!” With that, Freya swung her sword once again.
This time, however, he didn’t avoid her. With a slight movement of his body, he disappeared into thin air. When he reappeared, he was already standing beside her. Then, he attacked her with his palm.
However, Fabien’s sudden attack caught Freya off guard because she did not anticipate him having any energy left after their fight.
At such a critical moment, she could only raise her sword to shield herself from the attack. However, when his palm collided with her sword, the expected impact did not happen.
“Watch out, Freya!” Following the warning, he activated the Bane Family’s trick, which was the One Inch Punch. With the shake of his hand, a dark shadow flashed past and disappeared in an instant.
Freya was suddenly forced to retreat by a powerful force. After standing still, she felt her arm going numb.
At this time, Fabien finally withdrew all his attacks.
In a nonchalant tone, he remarked, “You’ve lost, Freya…”
“Who said that?!” she hollered as she raised her sword to attack him again.
Before she could take another step forward, she felt dizzy, and her limbs slowly turned weak.
“You used poison! That’s unfair!”
