“Hmph, you’ve overestimated your own strength and grown overconfident!”
Adrian’s figure vanished from where he stood as his voice died away without any warning. It was as if he had vanished into thin air and taken Alice along with him.
Adrian could not move as fast as a bullet because he was still a human.
Even if his consciousness could travel at high speed, his physical body would not be able to endure the immense stress of traveling so fast.
However, there was no need for him to move faster than a bullet. Josua only needed to travel faster than the person firing the gun. It was enough as long as he could travel faster than a human being’s sight.
Hence, he began to move one moment before the royal guards fired their weapons. Josua began dodging and launching a counterattack with Alice in his arm.
Dealing with the royal guards was very easy for him, no different from handling kindergarten toddlers.
Josua was supposed to meet the Queen on his trip to Yingland, but such incidents were beyond his control. Josua would never run away from any ongoing confrontations.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
The sound of gunfire filled the room. They were in the royal palace with numerous people at the scene who were all dignitaries of Yingland. The situation got them all panicking.
With the bullets flying, it would be troublesome if people were accidentally injured during the process of shooting at Adrian!
Moreover, they were in an indoor space where the bullets could ricochet very easily!
Just as expected, the bullets did not hit Adrian but struck the walls, pillars, and any hard surfaces almost instantaneously.
The bullets ricocheted and hit quite a number of the distinguished guests. The sound of people screaming in agony and moaning in pain echoed through the hall.
“Oh! I’ve been shot!”
“I’ve been shot. It hurts…”
“I’m going to die, I’m going to die…”
“What’s wrong with Prince William? How could he order them to fire their weapons in the palace?! He’s going to get us killed!”
“That’s right! He’s a coward and a man like him doesn’t deserve to be our prince!”
“Oooh! I’ve been shot in the leg!”
“A bullet hit my chest…”
The scene had already descended into chaos in just a few seconds. Quite a number of people had been shot.
Even some members of the royal family and the ministers did not manage to escape. The number of casualties was increasing.
In fact, some had been killed by the gunfire!
Prince William was stunned and confused, as he had not expected this to happen.
