A short distance away, Caspian found Zayn. His expression turned somber immediately. Zayn was a member of the Insurgent Trifecta, so his meritorious service would be considered rendered by the Insurgent Trifecta as well!
The main executors of this mission were supposed to be the Insurgent Unifecta and the Insurgent Duofecta, while the Insurgent Trifecta was only meant to assist the other two. If an Insurgent Trifecta member managed to seize the Ambrosia fruit, they would be humiliated.
He could not allow this to happen!
Over on Taio’s side, he noticed this as well. As he furrowed his brows, intense evil glistened in his eyes. “Damn Zayn, damn the Insurgent Trifecta! What the heck did he do to deserve the fluke of finding the Ambrosia fruit first? F*ck!”
Next to him, Hollis said in a shady tone, “We can’t allow the Insurgent Trifecta to take credit for this. Let’s join hands and get the Ambrosia fruit back! The glory belongs to our Insurgent Duofecta.”
They took a glance at each other before they ran toward Zayn’s direction in unison without the slightest hesitation.
At the same time, the members of the Insurgent Trifecta also discovered Zayn’s success in harvesting Ambrosia fruit. Needless to say, they were elated.
Joe clapped once abruptly and said, “That’s awesome! Sergeant Larson did a good job by being the first to harvest the Ambrosia! Our Insurgent Trifecta has rendered a laudable service this time!”
Liam widened his eyes in surprise and he was excited beyond comparison when he said, “Haha, that’s right. Sergeant Larson sure lives up to his reputation. He’s so impressive and his action has boosted the reputation of our organization too!”
Dick, Byleth, and the others were excited beyond comparison as well.
“Come, let’s gather with Sergeant Larson quickly. We can’t just let him fight against the enemies by himself!” Dick rallied with his face flushed.
The rest of the people nodded and began to walk toward Zayn.
Meanwhile, Eustace was watching Zayn moving on the snowy ground at full speed.
His eyes were glowing with intense brilliance while his gaze was filled with rage and hatred. “Damn you, Rheasian. You’ve found the Ambrosia fruit in advance. Damn it, damn it!”
Next, he began laughing maniacally at once. “So what if you’re the first to find it? The Ambrosia fruit is a precious treasure, but it is also a bad omen. Because of it, everyone on this snowy mountain wants to kill you, tee-hee.”
He rubbed the sword tied to his waist while his eyes glistened with a glint of icy cold murderous intent. After resting for a night, he had already recovered substantially.
He was only defeated by Zayn yesterday because it was a sneak attack. Moreover, he was empty-handed. If he came prepared with his sword unsheathed, he could guarantee that Zayn was no match for him!
He was not in a rush now because he was waiting for Zayn to be exhausted after fighting the rest of the highly-skilled fighters. Only then he would make a move and stab his sword through Zayn and cleanse his humiliation from yesterday.
The wind was blowing strongly and the clouds were surging. The weather in the sky changed once again. The clouds billowed and glowed while a gale began to sweep through Mount Leo.
It had only been a while before the other master fighters blocked Zayn’s path by surrounding him. They wanted him to hand over the Aeon Karpos, but he finished them off without exception.
Zayn devoted a portion of his attention to Ezra Sword now because the person he dreaded the most on Mount Leo was her. Fortunately, there was still some distance between them, so he still had the chance to run away.
It did not take long before two people appeared before him. They were looking at him with wide grins. “What a brave young man! Sergeant Larson, it’s impressive that you’ve trained to such a powerful extent at such a young age, and you’ve also managed to get your hands on the Ambrosia fruit, doing a great service.”
“Now, you’re going to hand the Ambrosia fruit to us so that you won’t be pursued and killed by the others.”
These two seemingly Good Samaritans were precisely Caspian and Christian. They acted as if they were wise old men who were considering protecting Zayn.
