“Zayn, I have to acknowledge that I’ve underestimated you. You’ve grown from being a weakling in the past.”
As Ezra spoke, he looked down at Zayn in an absolutely arrogant posture. He was not in a rush to fight Zayn. In his perception, albeit being qualified to fight against him, Zayn was still no match for him.
As the most powerful man under Invincibilis, he had the confidence to think so.
If this had been three months ago, Ezra would never have imagined today’s incident. Otherwise, he would not have taken Zayn so lightly at the time and would have killed him while the latter had still been weak!
Zayn looked at Ezra. He could not help feeling emotional about how he had indeed been a weakling in his foe’s presence in the past. He never expected to actually improve so quickly.
“However, your life will end today.” Ezra heaved a sigh, shaking his head with emotion as if he found Zayn’s death to be a pity.
From Zayn’s point of view though, Ezra was just putting on a front. Zayn sniggered at once.
“Sure, it will end, but it’s not my life that’s ending, it’s yours.”
Upon saying that, his presence grew exponentially akin to a rising tide and exerted an invisible pressure over the crowd.
They knew that Zayn was immensely powerful. As a man who had killed Raiden in a fight and challenged Ezra to a duel, they knew that they should not underestimate Zayn’s capability.
However, they had never witnessed Zayn’s formidableness anyhow. Yet now, he released himself from his constraints and unleashed all his power in its full form now.
His mighty presence repressed them like a solid substance until their hearts raced and they felt extremely unpleasant as if they were pinned under a massive mountain.
In their minds, Zayn was growing exponentially without stopping. In an instant, he turned into a giant who loomed over a thousand feet tall while wielding a sharp weapon that could pierce through the sky in his hand.
“Zayn’s presence is truly terrifying. It’s no wonder he has the courage to challenge Sir Ezra to a fight!”
“The son of the previous Saintess is quite impressive!”
“He’s not going to defeat Sir Ezra for real, is he?”
“That’s hard to tell…”
The crowd began to waver after sensing Zayn’s colossal presence.
Of course, there was a rather large portion of people who did not favor Zayn, but they had absolute confidence in Ezra because Ezra had been matchless for way too long.
Ezra’s reputation of being the most powerful man under Invincibilis was not a bluff. After all, he had practically carved his reputation with his pair of iron fists!
In the crowd, Lysithea raised her head and looked up to Zayn. Her heart was surging with emotions and she could not help recalling the scene of her meeting Zayn for the first time.
At the time, he had just been a second-tier master fighter, practically a little child who needed her protection. Yet now, in less than a year, Zayn had already surpassed her by leaps and bounds, transforming into someone who could protect her.
Ezra did not respond as he narrowed his eyes and looked at Zayn nonchalantly. He observed him sharply as if he wanted to see what else Zayn could transform himself into.
At last, Zayn’s presence reached its peak, and even Ezra could feel the pressure bearing down on him.
“Not bad,” Ezra spoke nonchalantly. Next, he made a move brazenly by charging toward Zayn.
His movement reached the ultimate speed that completely turned him into a blurry shadow such that it was hard for the human eye to track his movements.
