“Hello, may I inquire how long it will take for us to get to Mount Septimus?”
A car was traveling at high speed with Faye in the backseat, asking the question in a feeble voice.
Her body was much weaker compared to the day before. Moreover, she had more gray hair and her face was ghastly pale. It appeared as if the blood had been completely drained from her face. It was arduous for her to utter a single sentence, and her breathing quickened with her effort.
Ten minutes ago, the man, who was currently seated in front, found her in the hospital and had taken her away with his absolutely strong grip.
Not even the hospital had the courage to intervene. In the beginning, she was very reluctant, but the man said something that calmed her down immediately.
“Miss Carter, don’t worry. I’m with Mr. Larson and it’s he who sent me to fetch you,” said the man. Moreover, he played her a voice clip of Zayn calling him.
Faye considered it for a moment before she agreed. Considering her current appearance, no one else would be interested in her other than Zayn.
The person who had picked her up was none other than Lil Hyde. After receiving Zayn’s call, Lil Hyde did not procrastinate at all and immediately dropped everything he was working on to send Faye to Mount Septimus.
“Madam, we’re arriving at Mount Septimus soon.”
Faye nodded and said, “What is Zayn doing? Why is he asking for me to go to Mount Septimus?”
Lil Hyde shook his head and said, “Madam, he didn’t tell me the details, but he just sent me to take you to Mount Septimus. I believe that he is already waiting for you there.”
“Alright,” answered Faye. She looked out of the window and suddenly felt an ominous presentiment in her heart for some unknown reason.
Her right eyelid was constantly twitching while she muttered to herself, “Zayn, what are you actually up to?”
Faye was no fool. She knew that Zayn had chosen to engage in isolation training for 11 days after finding out about her condition, and now, he had ordered someone to take her to Mount Septimus.
She could feel that something was off.
Mount Septimus was a mountain located not far away from Mount Leo. Moreover, the journey from Mount Septimus to Mount Leo would require the traveler to cross a natural moat. It was impossible for even a master fighter to cross the natural moat without having adequate equipment.
On the other hand, Zayn had already come prepared. He would cross the natural moat using the equipment he prepared.
That way, he would be able to buy some time so that he could let Faye consume the Aeon Kapos successfully!
Zayn was running in the direction of Mount Septimus now. He calculated and figured that it was almost time for Lil Hyde to arrive at Mount Septimus with Faye. He had to move faster!
However, he was not so foolish as to travel in a linear fashion, but he began to take an S-curved path so that the people trailing him would not notice that he was heading to Mount Septimus.
All the skilled fighters on Mount Leo began to take action and tracked him. He had already lost count of how many skilled fighters he finished off along the way. There were some highly-skilled fourth-tier master fighters, some first-tier master fighters, and also cannon fodders who were acquired fighters.
Other than fourth-tier master fighters that could slow down his speed ever so slightly, he destroyed the rest of them in less than three seconds.
On the other hand, the act of killing these people was actually rather exhausting for Zayn. Despite his fitness level, he was soon fatigued while sweating profusely and breathing heavily.
No matter how strong he was, he was still a man and had his limits, after all.
However, despite his condition, the power and determination that he displayed already shocked countless people. Even Ezra started to take Zayn seriously now.
“The son of the previous Saintress is so full of energy and vigor. Impressive, very impressive!” Ezra exclaimed emotionally. He did not slow down, but every step he took crossed a distance of over 20 meters. His ability was extremely terrifying.
Lysithea’s gaze was filled with shock as well. She was greatly astonished by Zayn’s performance because she never expected him to already be so powerful.
However, Zayn was still a fourth-tier master fighter no matter how powerful he was. He was still impuissant, and there was no chance of him winning in a fight with a supreme being like Ezra.
“It will be good if a talented man like him is willing to join the organization,” said Ezra.
Lysithea did not speak because she knew that it was almost impossible for Zayn to join them in view of his temperament.
Over at the Insurgent Trifecta’s side, Joe and the others were shocked by Zayn once again.
