Ronald leaped up high and suspended himself in the air. Under the sunlight, the golden armor that he wore gleamed brilliantly. It caught everyone’s attention.
“I call this swordplay the Ethereal Slash. I learned it during my three years spent in seclusion. Until today, I have never displayed it in front of others. “It will be your greatest honor today to die by this technique!
“Now, watch me!” Ronald’s golden sword suddenly shook.
He then transformed into a golden streak of light and descended rapidly. His momentum was tremendous, destroying everything in its path.
“How fast! What a terrifying swordplay!
“Oh my goodness! Is this divine retribution? It’s so frightening!”
“No one can withstand this strike of his when unleashed. At least the young grandmaster will die an honorable death!”
Ronald’s astounding swordplay sent shockwaves throughout the arena. The martial artists were left in awe. That golden streak of light was as radiant as the sun and left people utterly defenseless.
As the sword descended, it seemed as though doomsday itself had arrived. It was strong enough to destroy everything in its path!
“Celestial Blade!” When Ronald unsheathed his sword, Dustin also made a sudden move. With a gentle tap, the black sword wrapped in cloth on his back unsheathed instantly.
At the same time, with a wave of his hand, Dustin retrieved two silver needles and pierced them into the back of his head.
In an instant, Dustin’s eyes turned bloodshot, and the veins started to bulge on his face. A surge of energy erupted from his entire body like an overwhelming tidal wave.
This was the secret technique of the Rhys family, a breakthrough with the cost of one’s life!
“Pathfinder!” Dustin suddenly leaped into the air. He grabbed the Celestial Sword that was suspended in midair. In an instant, he transformed into a black streak of light and charged toward the golden light.
Ronald was like a divine being surrounded by a brilliant golden light. Meanwhile, Dustin was enveloped in a swirling dark energy, like a demon. Two extreme forces collided with each other through their most powerful strike, one above and the other below.
In that instant, the skies shifted. Even the earth began to shake. After the dazzling light subsided, three thunderous crashes followed, each louder than the last.
Ronald’s golden sword exploded in the first crash. His protective energy shattered in the second. And the third crash saw the sword sever Ronald’s arm.
Dustin merged with his sword. He broke through Ronald’s attack and defense with an unstoppable force. At the same time, it inflicted severe damage to Ronald’s body. Since everything happened in just a blink of an eye, the crowd could barely discern the two beams of light colliding.
As they collided, the dark radiance pierced through the golden light. Then, it soared into the sky. Following that, the ground trembled. Loud explosions were heard, and surging waves of energy struck relentlessly.
The crowd had to cover their ears and close their eyes. They endured the shockwaves of the explosion. When the dust finally settled, Dustin was standing silently at the edge of the battle ring. The black sword in his hand was dripping with blood.
Meanwhile, Ronald appeared disheveled, and his face was filled with disbelief. His entire body was riddled with sword wounds and covered in injuries.
In particular, his arm that had been holding his sword was severed. With blood covering half his body, Ronald looked extremely battered and exhausted.
