An Understated Dominance by Marina Vittori Chapter 1144
The Celestial Blade turned into a bolt of dark lighting. After piercing through Antonio’s chest, it returned to Dustin’s hand.
Blood flowed down slowly from the blade, gathering at the tip before dripping onto the ground. It created a blossom of bloodstains.
Meanwhile, Antonio’s body trembled and plummeted from midair, crashing heavily onto the ground. He landed on his knees, freezing in a motionless kneeling position. Silence engulfed the entire place. It was so intense that one could hear the faintest sound of a pin dropping.
A collective shock seized them all. Their faces were etched with sheer astonishment, They never could have imagined that Kimboku’s mighty Sword Sage, the highly skilled Antonio, would be pierced through the chest by Dustin’s sword.
The entire situation happened so suddenly and without any warning that no one had time to react. All they witnessed was a bolt of dark lightning, and the next thing they knew, Antonio was already seen on his knees.
“Ugh…” Antonio stared down in utter disbelief. There was a bloody, gaping hole in his chest. It was so deep that he could see right through it.
Within that void, he saw Christopher’s shocked expression. The surreal perspective was bizarre and shocking.
“How? How did you … manage to hurt me?” Antonia asked hoarsely, struggling to lift his head.
Christopher was seriously injured and was unable to fight. Under normal circumstances, Antonio should have been invincible. He never expected such a turn of events.
“Why? You can ask the devil below …”
Without another word, Dustin walked up to him and sliced his head off. With a thud, Antonio’s head rolled off the ground. It was only then that the crowd awakened from their daze, and they erupted into an unprecedented commotion.
“He… He’s dead? Are my eyes playing tricks on me? This young man actually killed Antonio?”
“Oh my God! Antonio is Kimboku’s Sword Sage and a top-tiered grandmaster. It’s unbelievable that he was killed by just one move!”
“Who the hell is this guy? He’s so terrifying! What a monster!”
“Is he even human? How can he kill the Sword Sage with just a single strike? Since when did our city have such a monster?”
After a brief silence, the entire scene erupted into chaos. Everyone looked at Dustin like he was a monster. Their expressions betrayed their shock and astonishment.
They had thought that the Murray family would be in grave danger today. They had even prepared to flee. They didn’t expect Dustin to turn the situation around at the last moment.
For a moment, all of them were at a loss. Especially Evan, Vivian, and their group, who looked on in disbelief. They couldn’t accept the fact that Dustin was that incredible.
Wasn’t he just a loser selling insurance? Wasn’t he an insignificant individual without a background? How did he do it? Just how did he defeat Kimboku’s Sword Sage?
Could Dustin have a hidden identity? Had they been seeing a facade? A coverup?
If that were the case, they were in deep trouble. For someone who could defeat Kimboku’s elite Sword Sage so easily, they would be highly respected and revered by everyone, no matter when and where.
