Chapter 308

Abby humphed. “Stop pretending when you don’t know anything ” She rolled her eyes. “We’ll

know who’s better soon enough!”

“Even if Dustin doesn’t win against Tatum, he’s still a rare genius, so we should still respect him,” the man from earlier said.

“You’re right. Just getting Tatum to challenge him to a duel is a feat of its own. Otherwise, Boulderthorn wouldn’t have wasted so much energy on this.”

“I heard that he’s only around twenty. It’s extremely rare to see someone that age reach divinity. He’s practically a genius!”

“Even if he doesn’t win against Tatum, it will be an honorable defeat.”

Everyone began to chip in their opinions. Although they were sure Dustin would lose to Tatum, they still acknowledged the former’s talents and skills

“I heard that Dustin doesn’t have a quild and is self-taught He’s bound to shine if he enters Ironshade!” one said

Another chuckled. “Ironshade only has around a hundred disciples. A talent like him would be

wasted there”

Someone else agreed, “In terms of size and growth, Highfield is definitely better. I’m sure Dustin. wouldn’t refuse my offer.”

“Hey, are you guys forgetting about Steel Legion?” Abby shouted unhappily. “My guild is obviously the best If Dustin actually wants to pick a guild, he’d clearly choose us!”

Dustin was puzzled. He couldn’t figure out where Abby got her confidence from How could she be so sure when she didn’t even know who he was yet? Worse, Ralph seemed to think the same, judging from his smug expression.

Just as they were talking, a group of Boulderthorn disciples approached them. Leading them were Brody and Oliver Williams.

“My, my. If it isn’t Max.” Brody sneered when he spotted Maximus. “What’s a useless man like you. doing here?”

“That’s none of your business” Maximus retorted coldly.

“We’re peers, Max. Even though you’ve lost all your powers, I won’t push you away. For Caitlyn’s sake, I can help you return to being my father’s disciple if you beg me.” Brody sniggered, wrapping an arm around the delicate woman beside him.

Maximus’ face immediately darkened when he saw who it was. Caitlyn Lawler, his fiancée!

Previously, she had been with his mentor, yet here she was, in Brody’s embrace.

“Oh, right. I forgot to tell you that Caitlyn has agreed to marry me. She’s mine from now on. I hope you don’t mind.” Brody mocked.

“What? Maximus’ eyes widened, his hands clenched into fists. “Is that true, Caitlyn?”

“Don’t blame me, Max. I’m just a weak woman. I need someone to protect me. Now that you’ve lost all your powers, I can only rely on Brody,” Caitlyn answered frankly.

“Why? WHY?” Maximus’ eyes had turned bloodshot. “You said you’d wait for me, and we’d be together forever, so why would you marry him?”

“Are

you an idiot, Max?” Caitlyn rolled her eyes. “You don’t think that I truly like you, do you? What I like is power. Power to control others. I only agreed to marry you back then because you were the most talented disciple of us all. Look at you now. Besides getting kicked out, you’ve also lost all your powers. Without any power, what makes you think that you’re worthy of being with me? Was I supposed to suffer with you? Don’t be foolish!”
