A deafening explosion reverberated through the air. Dustin and Cooper both threw a punch, creating shockwaves of energy. Cooper was sent flying, like he was hit by a train, soaring over 30 feet before crashing down.
Before fully landing, his body suddenly burst with a resounding “pop,” like a balloon, transforming into a gruesome shower of flesh and blood.
His once robust physique now became a downpour of blood and flesh, with bones pulverized beyond recognition. The scene was akin to shoving a bomb into his belly. Following the explosion, an abrupt hush enveloped the entire area.
The onlookers gawked, looking in disbelief and astonishment. Was Cooper, famed for his impenetrable skin and iron bones, just annihilated by a single punch?
“H-How is this even possible? Cooper… he turned into freaking dust!”
“Damn! One punch, and Cooper’s gone. Who the heck is this brat?”
After a brief moment of stunned silence, chaos erupted in the crowd. Spectators stared at Dustin as if he was a monster.
Cooper, a powerhouse halfway to becoming a grandmaster, was considered nearly unbeatable for anyone below the grandmaster rank.
However, this formidable figure had been punched into oblivion by Dustin. It was an unbelievable sight. Was this kid some kind of grandmaster martial artist?
“No way! Is this guy really that powerful?” Scott widened his eyes, utterly astonished.
He had anticipated Cooper easily suppressing Dustin, only to witness Cooper pulverized by a single blow, leaving him in disbelief.
“What?” Anders furrowed his brow slightly, genuinely surprised. Cooper wasn’t to be taken lightly, and for Dustin to defeat him in one move indicated grandmaster-level prowess.
“Cooper? Cooper!” After witnessing the carnage, Elysia first froze and then let out a piercing scream. The two had been close for years. Yet now her husband, Cooper, was dead. She was overwhelmed with grief and fury.
“I’ll kill you! I’ll kill you!” Elysia roared, charging forward in a frenzy. At this moment, she cared little about Anders’ order to spare Dustin. Her sole focus was to tear Dustin apart as revenge for her husband, Cooper.
“Die!” Elysia raised her hand, and a swarm of venomous wasps surged from her sleeve like a barrage of bullets, relentlessly shooting toward Dustin.
Dustin remained expressionless, lightly stomping his foot. A powerful surge of true energy erupted from him.
The sound of explosions filled the air like fireworks. Every wasp struck by the true energy exploded into bits, not one escaping unscathed.
The pieces of the bodies of tens of thousands of wasps rained down from the sky, covering the ground like rainfall.
Undeterred, Elysia continued her assault. She pulled out a mysterious potion, drank it in one gulp, then opened her mouth and exhaled toward Dustin.
The exhaled breath had an icy chill and swept forward, covering the ground in a frosty layer. Even from a distance, everyone could feel the bone-chilling cold.
Dustin stood frozen at the attack and turned into an ice sculpture by the icy breath.
