Zayn came prepared this time. He was dressed in a high-tech suit. With just a gentle tug, two Wings made of composite material would grow out from his back, allowing him to fly far before he landed on Mount Septimus successfully!
On the other hand, everyone chasing after him on Mount Leo widened their eyes in astonishment.
“Oh, no! He’s running away!”
“Damn it! He got away!”
“I can’t stand this, argh…”
Many people stood on the cliff of Mount Leo and watched helplessly as Zayn fled by flying toward Mount Septimus. They clenched their teeth in anger and they stomped about in rage, yet there was nothing they could do.
Although they had prepared extensively and brought along many things with them for this trip, they did not prepare flight suits that allowed them to fly so far.
Joe and the others had a drastic change of expression as well. “What a nuisance! Sergeant Larson is…He’s going to get himself court-martialed!”
Dick’s expression was filled with anxiety and confusion. “Why did Sergeant Larson do that? He’s obviously a fourth-tier master fighter already, yet he’s betraying the country just for the Ambrosia fruit. Is it even worth it?”
Byleth stared at Zayn’s flying silhouette with glowing eyes. Compared to the others, he spent the least time interacting with Zayn and did not know Zayn that well.
He spoke in a deep voice, “Sergeant Larson is still young and naïve, so he can’t stand the temptation. He assumes that consuming the Ambrosia fruit will allow him to become an unbeatable fighter successfully. Alas, the unbeatable fighter is just a hoax…”
When he uttered his final sentence, the volume of his voice softened such that Joe and Dick could not hear him anymore.
At the same time, Ezra finally arrived.
His appearance immediately exerted immense pressure on the people around him. The weaker fighters around him could not stand his anger such that they bowed down in submission.
Ezra was the only final-class master fighter at the scene, so his aura was the most powerful of all. Even Joe could feel the immense pressure related to his presence, hence he did not have the courage to act rashly anymore.
“Zayn! Larson!” Ezra stared closely at Zayn who had already flown to Mount Septimus opposite with an icy cold, murderous expression.
Lysithea could sense Ezra’s murderous intent. Her brows furrowed tightly as she looked at Zayn on the opposite side. She was both worried yet furious because she had never expected Zayn to be so bold as to have the courage to take the Ambrosia for his own!
Moreover, Zayn still had the courage to do so despite knowing that Ezra was directly involved in this event. Zayn must be seeking doom.
She was well aware of how powerful Ezra was. Now that Ezra’s murderous intent for Zayn throbbed in the air, Zayn was bound to die.
“Mr. Ezra, I can see that Zayn is only blinded by his obsession for a moment. He won’t have the courage to consume the Aeon Karpos without your permission.”
“I hope that you will show mercy and let him live. After all, he is The Saintress’ only son,” said Lysithea while biting her lower lip in a tone close to pleading to Ezra.
However, Ezra shot a cold glance at her before grunting and said, “We’ll have to see if he’s looking for trouble or not!”
Lysithea understood Ezra’s intention and knew that everything could be salvaged as long as Zayn did not consume the Aeon Karpos. If he were to consume the Aeon Karpos, he would be doomed for sure.
Zayn was very powerful whereas his speed of improvement was almost miraculous. Still, Lysithea did not think that Zayn could flee from Ezra. She could only pray now that Zayn would not be looking for trouble.
On the other side, Taio had a sinister smile on his face. “Zayn, how dare you take exclusive possession of the Ambrosia fruit? You’re dead. No one else in this world can save you now!”
When Zayn landed on Mount Septimus successfully, he turned around and took a final glance at everyone on Mount Leo from afar.
