“I’ll make you understand that you’ve made the worst decision of your entire life!” Seb exclaimed, his voice hoarse.
His face was filled with nothing but rage. At the same time, he was starting to regret his decision.
He wondered why he stood up to fight Harvey in the first place. If only he just safely pressured Harvey behind the scenes, he’d be rewarded once everything was set and done.
Now that he was crippled, what was the point of the reward even if Harvey was taken down?
“The sorcerers, go against me?”
Harvey showed a disdainful expression.
“Ask Kylen if he’d dare.”
Harvey then ignored Seb, and wiped his hand with some tissues.
“Who else is there? If this is all you’ve got, then you won’t get the justice you deserve. You’d have to give me an explanation about the situation as well.”
“Don’t get too cocky, Harvey.”
Shinsuke, who had been quiet the entire time, couldn’t hold himself back any longer. He quickly swallowed a pill before stepping forward with his arms crossed.
“I’m not a well-known martial artist of the Island Nations, but I’m still a butler for the Way of Water!
“For the Way of Water’s reputation, and the sake of the lady’s justice…
“I’ll give my all just for you to pay the price!”
Shinsuke looked fierce. In reality, he was shivering in his boots.
The Island Nations was the one fighting the main battle, while Evermore only supported them behind the scenes. If none of the Islanders decided to fight, their morale would be completely suppressed by Harvey.
If that was the case, then it would be impossible to complete their mission.
Shinsuke had no choice but to stand up.
“Are you people really that cowardly?
“If I’m correct, there are still a few experts on your side, right?
“They’re not fighting, but they’re sending you out to die…
Just so they can see my moves.
“Is there a point in doing that?”
Harvey calmly exposed Shinsuke’s goal, making the latter’s eyes twitch.
“Of course there is!
“If we kill you… The Island Nations would benefit greatly from it!
“An outstanding young man like you should be killed! We don’t need any other reason!”
Shinsuke took a step forward before unsheathing his sword and swinging it forward. The cut was quick, ruthless, and accurate.
Shinsuke did nothing flashy; his movements were simple, proving that he had already trained for many years and had almost perfected his own style. With a little more time, he probably would’ve become an actual God of War.
The blade flashed before Harvey’s eyes, and came straight for him like a crashing wave.
Harvey quickly flicked his finger at the blade.
A powerful aura swept out when the two clashed. Harvey’s body swayed, and he took a step back.
