Hearing Jean’s remarks, the crowd abruptly came to realize that he had poisoned Jagoan’s drink!
Moreover, it was strong enough to kill a skilled fighter.
Ivanka’s eyes widened in surprise. Seeing Jean’s manic appearance, she was confused as to why he would do such a thing!
Jagoan was the most outstanding man who could bring the most hope to the whole of Rheasia.
Even though she did not know about him before, she knew that Jagoan was Rheasia’s hope after learning about his deeds. She was certain that he would rise to be the highest authority in Rheasia.
Even so, Jean had tried to poison a man like that. Could he actually bring himself to do that?
When she recovered from her surprise, she immediately walked over to give Jean a ferocious slap and scolded aloud, “Jean, you’re a beast! Mr. Larson is the third ever invincibilis fighter in Rheasia and is a great hope to the nation ! How could you poison him?!”
Ivanka flew into a great rage. She did not have feelings for Jean beforehand, but apart from that, her overall impression of him was still quite favorable. After all, Jean was still a very outstanding man.
Now, he had actually committed such an outrageous crime.
In turn, Jean was not angered by her slap. On the contrary, he burst out laughing. He laughed so loudly yet so frantically.
“Hah-hah-hah! A hope to the nation? Who claims that he is our country’s hope?”
“Even if he is the hope of our country, so what? It was his fault for offending me and trying to take my woman! I’m the only one who can claim to be the greatest genius in the world!”
His face flushed with extreme excitement as he spoke. His eyes wide, he was in a frantic state.
He found the act of poisoning Jagoan to death so exciting that his body was trembling.
The rest of the people hastily backed away and looked at him in fear.
Meanwhile, Jagoan slowly got up from the ground. His face was ghastly pale and he was bleeding from his mouth, but he was still alive. He appeared to be in a sickly state and on his last breaths.
He stood up with great effort, stared at Jean intensely and said, “You tried to poison me to death just because I beat you up?”
He did not seem to be emotional when he made the remark and others found him to be very calm. He did not panic nor lose his composure even when poisoned, which formed a stark contrast with Jean’s manic behavior.
Jean’s eyebrow twitched twice because he loathed Jagoan’s composure. It made him seem like he was the villain or the clown!
Jagoan was still younger than him, yet how bad the man become so much more accomplished?
In addition, he was the genius, so he was supposed to be the country’s hope, so he assumed that Jagoan had only attained his achievements by luck!
He had already looked into Jagoan and found that the man had been a weakling in the past.
Had Jagoan not consumed Aeon Karpos on the snowy mountain, he would not have been able to regain his health.
Had Jagoan not acquired a portion of the country’s power during the Martial Arts Cup, Jagoan would not have been able to get half a step away from the invincibilis state within such a short period of time, nor would he have been qualified to enter Shangri-la and finally reach invincibilis!
In his perception, Jagoan was supposed to be a bumpkin whose status was far inferior to his own.
