The assassin ’s twitching body went limp, a look of fear and agony still on his face, before it stopped moving completely.
Leonardo loosened his grip and let the corpse fall to the ground..
It was a shocking scene that changed everyone’s impression of him. They were stunned as they stared in bewilderment, incredulous expressions on their faces.
Alice and Prince William’s eyes widened. They were completely dumbfounded, and it took them some time to recover from the surprise. They had never thought Leonardo could be so formidable.
It all changed when that ferocious assassin, who seemed unstoppable, had been choked to death so quickly and easily.
The turn of events completely reversed their impression of Moses. It was if they had just seen a frail, old woman choking a strong man to death with ease. It did not make any sense.
It was a shocking scene for the rest of the assassins as well. They had checked out Leonardo earlier, and they were certain he was just an ordinary man.
Instead, the power Leonardo had just displayed was far beyond anything they had expected!
Nevertheless, they were still professional assassins. Moreover, they were all outstandingly skilled, so they understood soon enough.
The lead assassin’s pupils constricted instantly and he assumed a shocked expression. It was because not even him had noticed how Leonardo delivered the attack!
Most importantly, Leonardo had yet to exude any powerful presence up to now and it did not make sense at all.
“You! Who are you!”
The lead assassin tensed up his muscles instantly as if he was preparing to engage a formidable enemy.
The rest of the assassins had also responded at this very moment by focusing all their attention to stare at Leonardo closely. They would launch an attack at Leonardo with just an order from their leader!
After dropping the corpse of the assassin, Leonardo was not in a rush to fight the others. His gaze swept past each one of them like a laser scanner collecting data of every assassin.
He also began calculating rapidly in his mind to figure out how much time was needed to capture all these assassins at once.
Upon hearing Leonardo’s answer, the assassins did not react much. It was apparent that they had never heard of him.
It made Leonardo feel a little puzzled.
After the Martial Arts Cup, he was no longer some nobody, and all the fighters in the entire world should have known his name.
The assassins were all master fighters, so they ought to have heard of him.
However, given their reaction, it was apparent that he was unknown to them.
Did this signify that the club members did not concern themselves with the goings-on of the countries?
Or were they just uninformed and ignorant?
Regardless, it was good news for Barne, and he would not need to exert himself.
Alice covered her mouth and looked at Leonardo incredulously while she cried out in fear, “Larson, you…”
Leonardo turned around and cracked a brilliant smile at her while he said, “I told you that I’m going to protect you, Alice. Have you forgotten about that?”
Alice felt her heart beating loudly in her chest, and she was overwhelmed by indescribable emotions upon hearing that.
On the other hand, Prince William was staring in bewilderment. He had an utterly shocked expression because he never thought the Rheasian could hold his own in a fight.
“It seems I’ve underestimated you. I didn’t expect you to be a skilled fighter.”
The lead assassin spoke with a piercing voice and then snapped his fingers. Wasting no time talking, he ordered the assassins to attack Leonardo instantly.
Their superior had ordered them to capture Prince William and Alice at all costs. Leonardo’s interference was nothing but an unexpected hindrance. It did not stop them from carrying out their mission.
