Chapter 2638 Ten Minutes
Even Ghaylen looked astonished, his disbelief evident on his face.
Kai’s current cultivation was far weaker than Bilius’, making him the weaker party. Yet, he unexpectedly proposed a life-and-death duel.
Ebenez and Bilius were at a loss for words, caught off guard by his unexpected suggestion.
Kai noticed Bilius’ silence and pressed on. “What’s the matter? Are you afraid of me? Worried you might meet a miserable end?”
Kai deliberately provoked him.
All eyes turned to Bilius. Kai’s cultivation level was much lower than his, so rejecting the challenge would bring Bilius great embarrassment.
“Ghaylen, Bilius is a disciple of Emerald Cauldron Sect. It wouldn’t be appropriate for him to engage in a life-and-death battle. Our master might punish us if he finds out about it. Let’s put an end to this. Whoever loses should simply apologize,” Ebenez said to Ghaylen.
After all, Kai was only an Eighth-Level Manifestor. The fact that he dared to propose a duel like that left Ebenez and Bilius wondering what tricks he might have up his sleeve.
Ebenez was particularly worried that accepting the duel might give Kai an advantage. The prospect of the fight leading to the death of his disciple deeply troubled him.
“I insist on the life-and-death duel. If you don’t dare to accept, I won’t force you. Just kneel and apologize to me, and I’ll spare your life!” Kai rejected Ebenez’s proposition outright before Ghaylen could speak, determined to proceed with his proposal.
Ebenez was stumped by Kai’s response, and his face turned ashen with anger. They were now caught between a rock and a hard place, unable to either agree or turn down the proposal.
Upon noticing how hesitant Ebenez and Bilius were, many disciples of Emerald Cauldron Sect began whispering among themselves. In their eyes, Bilius’ strength was considerably superior to Kai’s, yet Kai had boldly proposed the challenge, while the former seemed reluctant to accept it.
As Kai was frustrated by Bilius’ ongoing hesitation, his patience wore thin. Taking two steps forward and spreading his legs apart, he demanded, “Kneel, crawl over, and I’ll forget about this duel! Since you lack the courage, let’s resolve this in the most cowardly manner!”
Bilius’ anger flared up even more at Kai’s smirking and mocking tone.
“Fine. I’ll take you on. Only the winner will walk out of the stage alive! There’s no way you, an Eighth-Level Manifestor, can take me down!” A cold glint flashed across Bilius’ eyes.
“Let’s get onto the stage now and stop wasting time. I’ll concede defeat if I can’t beat you in ten minutes!” Kai said with an air of arrogance.
Hearing that, the crowd gasped in surprise again. Not only was Kai daring enough to challenge Bilius to fight to the death, but he also boasted about defeating him within ten minutes. The idea that he could defeat Bilius in under ten minutes is simply unbelievable! What arrogance!
Upon hearing his bold words, Bilius could not help but burst out laughing. “Young man, you’re too full of yourself. Let’s see how you’d defeat me within ten minutes!”
Even if Kai had some hidden tricks, Bilius firmly believed that defeating him within ten minutes was an impossible feat.
Even Ebenez could not help but let his guard down, a smile forming on his lips. “Young man, you better not go back on your words. I’ll take that as the rule of the battle. If you can’t defeat Bilius in ten minutes, you must take your own life.”
“Mr. Chance…” Sigurd, Zebediah, and the others cast worried glances at Kai, expressing their concern for him.
Although Sigurd was aware of Kai’s abilities, the idea of defeating Bilius within ten minutes seemed somewhat implausible.
Kai waved his hand confidently. “Don’t worry. I can deal with that piece of trash in less than ten minutes.”
