Chapter 177

“You attacked out of turn!” Nigel held his bleeding nose and scowled at the assassins” leader.

Damn it, he didn’t even have a chance to show off in front of Ruth! Where were his manners!

“It’s your fault for getting distracted in battle! Are you tired of living?” The leader sneered.

“Scumbag, you are getting on my nerves! I’ll give you one last chance to kneel and beg for mercy, otherwise. I will roundhouse kick you in the arse! Nigel glared at him viciously.

As he threatened, Nigel leaped into the air and did a somersault, looking quite impressive.

“Arrogant fool!” The assassins‘ leader’s eyes were cold as he and his remaining men rushed toward Nigel at


“Be careful, Mr. Lincoln!” The girls exclaimed in shock.

“Don’t overestimate yourself!” Nigel reared fearlessly as he took a step back to perform his special move.

He spun around like a spinning top, attacking the assassins ferociously.

His kicks were merciless and deadly; anyone who got close to Nigel was knocked down easily like dominoes. Even the assassins‘ leader could not withstand Nigel’s attacks and was blown off his feet.

In just a minute, all the assassins were defeated.

For that moment, Nigel seemed unrivaled and invincible!

“Wow, Nigel is amazing!”

“Oh my goodness, his fighting technique is cut of this world!”

“As expected of Mr. Lincoln, he is truly a terrifying martial artist!TM

Looking at the number of assassins

were lying incapacitated on the ground, everyone started

complimenting Nigel. Their eyes were shining as they rained praise on their hero.

“This victory is not worth mentioning. They are just small fries!” Nigel stood with his hands behind his back, feigning nonchalance.

However, he couldn’t help but steal a glance at Ruth while he spoke, with a haughty expression on his face.

“Mr. Lincoln, you were incredible! You make all of us feel safe just by having you around! Any girl would be lucky to have you as a boyfriend!” The girl in yellow held her hands to her chest, looking up at Nigel with admiration.

“You’re flattering me.” Nigel smiled modestly.

“It’s only natural for a man to protect a woman. I’m not like some coward who hides at the back and relies on women for protection. That’s really pathetic!” Nigel looked at Dustin intentionally to prove his point.

“Hey, you! Cidn’t you have a sharp tongue? Why are you not saying anything now? Are you dumb?‘ The girl in yellow sneered, her face full of disdain.


Chamber 177

“If you ask me, someone here is all talk and no action. Most of the time, he is as arrogant as a peacock.

However, when things go wrong, he is the first person to flee.”

“Ruth, now it’s obvious which choice is better, right? If it weren’t for Mr. Lincoln, we wouldn’t have been able to

fight against these vicious people.”

“That’s right! When looking for a boyfriend, we should find a real man like Mr. Lincoln! As for the guy next to you, you should forget about him, What’s the use of having a cowardly and timid man around?”

At that moment, everyone was gossiping about the two of them.

Nigel proved his bravery and strength, while Dustin did nothing like a coward. Comparing the two, it was clear who was better.

“Dustin, why didn’t you do anything just now?” Listening to the harsh comments of those around her, Ruth

couldn’t help but frown.

She knew that Dustin was skilled in martial arts, although not necessarily stronger than Nigel. However, dealing with a few petty assassins shouldn’t be a problem.

“These small fries don’t interest me.” Dustin said nonchalantly.

“Small fries? You may be a coward, but your words are quite the opposite!”

“Just admit that you are pathetic. How dare you find excuses for yourself?”

“He only knows how to talk big, but he’s actually just a coward!”

“What a wimp, disgusting loser!”

Remaining silent would have been better for Dustin, as anything he said only led to contempt.

“Punk, it’s obvious that you don’t have the guts nor the ability to fight. Why pretend to be tough? If you kneel down and beg. I might teach you a few moves so you won’t wet yourself from fear the next time.” Nigel.


“If you’re so capable, then take down those two behind you first.” Dustin pointed his chin to the door.

Nigel turned around in surprise and saw that there were indeed two more people.

Both of them were bald, one dressed in green and the other in black. They were muscular and burly men, with fierce eyes and bulging biceps.

“Oh! Who are these two men who don’t fear death?” Nigel smirked scornfully.

“Was it you who injured our men?” The bald man in green spoke first.

“Yes, it’s me. What are you going to do about it? What, do you want to have a laste of my roundhouse kick too?

Nigel replied arrogantly.

“Roundhouse kick? Heh, trash!” The green baldy sneered.

“Fool! How dare you look down on me? Today, I’ll let you witness my special move, the Whirlwind Kick!” As Nigel spoke, he leaped into the air.


Whirling around, he kicked up a fierce tornado that looked very impressive.

The girls around him were dazzled by his moves.

“Mr. Lincoln, go for it!”

“Take them down!”

Full of admiration, they cheered Nigel on.

Gathering his strength, Nigel smashed a powerful blow into the bald man’s skull.

A muffled sound was heard.

However, the bald man in green was unscathed by the attack. He didn’t even move a muscle, just slightly tilted his head.

On the other hand, Nigel’s bones were fractured, and his whole body went numb.

“You-!” Nigel was stunned, his face full of disbelief.

Even when he attacked using his full power, he still couldn’t break his opponent’s defense. In contrast, his leg was shattered by the reaction force.

What kind of monster was this that popped out of nowhere?

“Whirlwind Kick? Is that all?” The bald man in green sneered and grabbed Nigel’s leg.

He flung Nigel up into the air, smashing into the ceiling.

After that, his body fell to the ground, flattened like a mere bug.

Before Nigel could get up, a deafening sound was heard as the bald man slammed Nigel’s face deeper into the ground, causing the floor to crack.

Blood spurted out from his mouth and nose, and he couldn’t even scream in agony. His body was severely injured, with countless fractures all over.

“You’re not even worth my time!” The bald man in green sneered with an expression of disdain.

When they saw Nigel lying motionless on the ground, everyone was stunned. Their eyes widened in shock.
