Isfrid and her team, who were standing behind Dustin, had it worse. They had difficulty breathing and staggered backward involuntarily.
“Is this what a divine–level martial artist is like? How frightening!”
The crowd looked at each other in apprehension, silently worried.
“Fool.” Dustin sneered coldly at Joshua’s oncoming attack and made a move, landing a fierce slap on his face. The thunderous slap sent Joshua into a backflip in the air, and he landed head first onto the ground.
At that moment, everyone was stunned into oblivion.
“What the fuck!”
Everyone was shaken by the abrupt scene. No one could have imagined that the previously heroic Joshual would fall by Dustin’s slap, and they wondered if it was a coincidence or an accident.
“Josh!” Jade and Tina’s expression paled as they rushed up to him. They helped him up to his feet while he was still feeling dizzy.
*Josh, are you alright?” Jade was taken aback and worried.
“What happened just now?” Joshua shook his head, appearing dazed. Everything happened so suddenly that he didn’t notice Dustin’s movements. He only felt his sight go dark, and the next thing he knew, he was thrown to the ground.
were beaten to the ground by that bastard,” Jade explained with a strange expression.
“No! That’s impossible!” Joshua could never believe it. “How could he have hit me? I must have slipped and fell on my own!”
“That’s right! You must have slipped!” Tina nodded furiously beside him.
“Kiddo! That didn’t count. Let’s go again!” Joshua couldn’t admit defeat. With a tap of his feet, he launched himself out again.
Another clear, booming slap rang out before he was launched back with even greater speed. Joshua suffered a crushing defeat and was badly battered.
The crowd was shocked once again. They could have explained his first victory as the result of a coincidence or accident. But the second victory was absolutely remarkable.
“Let her go,” Dustin spat out coldly.
y–you’ve gone too far! I won’t be able to sleep if I don’t kill you right now!” Joshua flew into a rage and. pushed the two women beside him away, launching himself toward Dustin for the third time.
This time, instead of his empty lists, he took out a dagger from his waist. With a weapon in hand, his attack would be exceedingly lethal!
“Go to hell!” As he drew near, Joshua swung his dagger forcefully. A sharp whistle was heard, and only the
gleam of the dagger was seen. It aimed toward Dustin’s forehead with fierce velocity.
Dustin stood still, allowing the incoming assault to occur. With a loud bang, the dagger exploded as it came into contact with his forehead, dissipating into sparks of light.
“What?” Joshua’s pupils dilated in horrified shock.
How was that possible?
Dustin had taken his slash head–on, literally. But Joshua was the divine–level martial artist! Any slash of his
would break open boulders. Even a block of steel would slice in half with his previous attack, but Dustin
blocked that attack with his head!
“Impossible! I must have been mistaken!” Joshua shook his head furiously, unable to believe it.
