Chapter 416

Dustin was rendered speechless. What else was he supposed to think when a girl willingly approached him at night?

Too lazy to argue, Dustin merely asked, “What do you need?”

“Judging from today’s battle, you seem like a good fighter. How did you do that?” Abigail asked.

“Ever heard of Elder–level martial artists? I’m one of them, so I can easily handle over three hundred opponents. *Dustin answered nonchalantly.

“Yeah, right. I doubt it.” Abigail clearly didn’t believe him.

“Whatever. You probably can’t comprehend what I’m telling you anyway. All you need to know is that I’m very powerful.” Dustin summarised. Most ordinary citizens didn’t know about martial artists, so even if they met one, they wouldn’t be able to tell.

“Fine. Can you teach me some moves? I’m not asking for much. I just want to be able to defeat a dozen men.” Abigail looked at Dustin with hopeful eyes.

“You want me to take you in as my disciple?” Dustin raised an eyebrow.

“Ugh, you’re so old–fashioned. Who does that these days? Just teach me a few moves as a friend,” Abigail responded.

“I guess that’s fine. But to learn my moves, you have to have a solid foundation, or it’ll be useless. This means that you’ll have to start by building your internal energy.” Dustin told her.

“What’s internal energy?” Abigail stared at him dumbly.

“You can understand it as mana.”

“Oh, I get it. It’s what allows those people to become human anvils and all.” Abigail realized.

“Um… I guess so.” Dustin’s smile faltered before he continued. “It takes talent for someone to cultivate mana. After all, effort pales in comparison to actual talent. Those who are meant to become martial artists will easily understand this, while those who aren’t won’t see the results no matter how hard they work.”

“I see. Then do I have that talent?” Abigail asked eagerly.

“Give me your hand.


“I’ll pass some of my true energy to you. If you can feel it, that means you’ve got the potential to become a martial artist; if you don’t, then you’re just not cut out for it.” Dustin explained, holding her wrist and channeling some of his energy into her.

“Huh? I can feel It! It’s warm and tingly!” Abigail lit up.

“Not bad. You passed the first level.” Dustin nodded. Before he could say anything elsehis brows furrowed as he realized the energy he had just channeled into her had miraculously disappeared. It was as if something

had swallowed his energy completely.

“How is this possible?”

Puzzled, Dustin channeled another burst of energy into Abigail, which was quickly absorbed again. However, he had felt it this time. There was a seal inside her body, and the seal was so strong that his true energy

wasn’t enough to affect it.

Fortunately, it was a protective seal that was harmless to Abigail’s body and would only come into effect when she was in danger. Thinking that the energy he channeled earlier was a threat, the seal automatically

absorbed it.

The seal had been done by someone who was either a Grandmaster martial artist or stronger and an expert in seal making. In other words, Abigail was under the protection of someone powerful.

“What’s wrong? Is there a problem?” Abigail asked after seeing Dustin’s reaction.

“It’s nothing.” Dustin smiled. “I’ll pass you the training technique, but your success depends on you.” He wrote down the training techniques for beginners and passed the paper to Abigail. “Study it back in your room. Find

me again once you’ve mastered your internal energy.”

“Okay!” Abigail took the paper and ran back to her room excitedly.

“Interesting.” Dustin smirked, staring at Abigail’s retreating figure.

The seal in her body was extremely rare, and only close family members would waste so much time and effort

to do something like that.

Dustin instantly became more interested in Abigail’s mother.
