“Then why don’t we try it out?”
The old man’s eyes narrowed slightly, and he activated his Chi, pooling it in his palm. With a wave of his hand, a frightening sword made of Chi appeared.
The flying sword was enormous, nearly over twenty feet in size. After it appeared, it lifted upward and zipped over, then it slashed down.
Alejandro sensed that this old man would not be an easy opponent after seeing his attack. From the looks of it, the man must be a fighter at the peak of the true god status. Furthermore, his first attack had been so ferocious. It was as though he had no intention of holding back
He also clenched his fist and punched it outward. Suddenly, a giant fist made out of Chi appeared. The fist had a frightening aura, and it flew toward the flying sword.
A huge bang rang out in the space between the two. The terrible clash caused waves of energy to ripple in all directions. A frightening wind rushed over many people, and those who were of lower cultivation levels were so scared that they took two steps backward.
Ripples appeared in the water of the ocean beneath them. One could tell that the two fighters at the peak of the true god status had such frightening attacks!
The old man across him was strong, but he still was no match for Alejandro. He was pushed backward, and his face turned pale.
“I’m sorry, but we truly have something urgent to attend to here. That’s why we must move forward. I hope that you can let us pass through!”
Alejandro looked at the opposing side. He waved his palm and took out a few stalks of second-grade intermediate spirited grass, making it float toward them.
“Fine. Since you’re adamant about it, you may continue to press forward. We’re just warning you that the forces in the ocean are not weak. There are plenty of fighters on the islands too!”
The old man closed his eyes and took the items after giving it some thought. Then he waved his hand, signaling for everyone to clear a path, allowing Jack and the others to pass through.
After they had left, a middle-aged man spoke to the old man, “Master, are-are we letting them go just like that? Didn’t our superiors tell us to investigate the situation properly?”
“Stop talking nonsense. Do you seriously want to fight them? Not even the Hall of Divine Royal dares to attack them rashly, and instead, they told us to test them. Did you really think that we can beat them?”
The old man looked at the middle-aged man impatiently.” Besides, we’ve already tested them. The man from just now was very strong, and there was a young man who was reading a book on the flying sword,” he said. “He did not so much as spare us a glance from start to finish. What does this mean? It means that he’s not afraid of us in the slightest. It means that he’s confident in the others-he’s confident that they’ll be able to defeat us easily. We only have thirty thousand people. How are we supposed to beat them?”
“You’re right, Master. If we had truly fought and angered them, they might just kill all of us!”
Another middle-aged woman also stood up. “Although we’re a force serving the Hall of Divine Royal, we’ve done enough to test them. I’ve observed them closely just now. Some of the families among their numbers have many people. They’re definitely the bigger families, so they’ll have quite a few fighters at the peak of the true god status. Coupled with the fighters from the bigger families, we’re no match for them here!”
The old man looked at the middle-aged woman and nodded his head in satisfaction. He spoke to the middle-aged man, “You’d better learn and observe the situation carefully next time. They did not say that we needed to fight them by sending us to test them. If we truly fought, we would have been no match for them! Let’s go. We’ll report to our superiors that we’ve tested them and that they’re very strong. Furthermore, they didn’t even listen to our advice!”
