“Even if you can cut off my hair, you’re paying at least ten years’ worth of your life to do just that. Besides, it’ll be a lot harder for you to break through later on.”
“You know quite a bit, Harvey…” Zaid chuckled wretchedly.
“People who know too much die a lot earlier. The moment you disrespected our leader, your fate has been sealed!”
Zaid pounced forward with his sword.
In reality, he was already out of options as soon as he declared that he was on Alani and the others’ side.
Either he took out Harvey, or he’d be taken out. If word of Heaven’s Gate being a traitor of the country were to spread, the four cornerstones would give them an unforgettable lesson.
Now that he had made himself clear to Harvey, Zaid only wanted Harvey to put down his guard, then kill him.
Seeing Zaid take action, Alani’s eyes twitched. She quickly sent a text through her phone.
Zaid was already in front of Harvey at this very moment. He swung his sword at lightning speed, aiming for Harvey’s head.
Harvey flicked his finger, successfully blocking Zaid’s furious strike.
Zaid’s body trembled, and he instinctively took a step back.
Harvey raised his hand to look at his finger.
“If you’re able to brute force your way to this kind of strength, Heaven’s Gate might just find a way to cultivate Gods of War after a few more generations of people.
“They wouldn’t need to take drugs just to become a God of War, like your teacher.”
Zaid froze, then frowned. “How did you know about that?”
“Simple, really. Any God of War would have already perfected their martial arts.
“Your teacher would rather throw away his integrity for a technique. This means that Heaven’s Gate doesn’t care about its martial arts at all.
“Despite that, Layton is still somehow a God of War. This can only mean he’s either a miracle, or he took drugs.
“Looks like I’m right about that. Not only did he take drugs, but he must’ve taken quite a lot of it as well…
“You call this a sacred martial arts training ground? Might as well be a crack den at this point.”
“No matter how he became a God of War, he still is one!” Zaid yelled coldly.
“A small fry like you would never understand the lengths we go to!
“Going against him means going against Heaven’s Gate!
“You’re destined to die at this point!”
Zaid appeared right in front of Harvey, and swung his sword at him again.
Clang, clang, clang!
Harvey remained calm even as he faced such a terrifying attack; he didn’t dodge, nor did he fight back. All he did was deflect any attack that came his way.
He was only using his finger, while Zaid used his long sword.
When Zaid had given out many slashes, Harvey flicked his finger forward once again.
The aura in Zaid burst out once again, and his slashes became a lot fiercer.
As they clashed, Harvey grew confused.
