A Man Like None Other Chapter 1706
A Man Like None Other Novel
Despite all the nonsense Astrid was spewing, Kai didn’t even get to interrupt. “ Kai, it turns out that you still miss my sister. In that case, why haven’t you visited us in such a long time? My sister has even been calling out your name in her sleep.”
Millie, who had come forward, asked in a teasing tone. “I… I was just too busy and didn’t manage to find the time,” Kai replied in embarrassment.
“That’s not going to be a problem going forward. We’ll be seeing each other very often.” A look of delight flashed across Millie’s face. “Why?” Kai was stunned.
“Cecilia has decided to move Crimson Palace here. Being near to each other, we’ll be able to meet frequently.” Millie finished with a giggle.
The news blew Kai away, as he didn’t expect Cecilia to make such a momentous decision. In response to Kai’s silence, Millie continued, “Cecilia did this for you. Therefore, you cannot let her down.”
With that, Millie skipped away to catch up with her sister. Dumbfounded, Kai didn’t know how to even react.
Considering that he already had enough women to deal with, he didn’t expect Cecilia to join the fray. More than an hour later, most of the guests had already arrived.
Kai went around, toasting his guests at every table. Regardless of their true intentions for coming, Kai treated everyone present as his honored guest.
That said, there was one table in particular that Kai was terrified to approach-the one where Cecilia and Astrid were seated.
Kai didn’t know whose bright idea it was to concentrate all the women at a single table. Seated there were Cecilia, Astrid, Evangeline, Lizbeth, Lyanna, and a few others.
With so many of them gathered there, he couldn’t help but worry about a fight breaking out anytime.
Despite his concerns, he steeled himself and walked over. After all, he had to show his appreciation to Cecilia for traveling such at great distance to attend the event.
As Kai approached the table, every single one of the women’s gazes fell upon him. The pressure he felt was more intense than when he faced a Martial Arts Saint.
“Ms. Jingle, thank you for coming all this way. Here’s a toast to you.” Upon finishing his sentence awkwardly, Kai downed his drink in a single gulp.
The embarrassed look on Kai’s face elicited a discreet laugh from Cecilia before she, too, downed her drink completely. “Ladies, please continue to enjoy yourselves while I entertain the other guests.”
After Kai was done mumbling a reply, he quickly turned and left as if he was fleeing. Behind him, the clear sounds of feminine laughter were subsequently heard.
At the end of his rounds, Kai joined Verner’s table. Since all of them were young and talented martial artists, he intended to get to know them better.
Be they friend or foe, there was no harm in doing so.
No sooner had Kai taken his seat than Verner gave him an envious look. “ Kai, it looks like you’re more than just an outstanding martial
artist from our generation. I’m surprised that you’re a casanova too, with so many women by your side. I’m more than willing to sacrifice my cultivation just to be in the same position as you are.”
It was clear that Verner’s admiration was sincere and he wasn’t just being polite. After all, every single woman at the table was a stunning beauty in her own right.
Cecilia, in particular, would captivate anyone whose eyes fell upon her. Every movement of hers, including something as simple as a smile, exuded the air of an angel who had descended from the heavens itself.
If it weren’t for Kai’s presence, plenty of men would have already hit on her.
As for Melanie and Lyanna, both of them were born gorgeous. Regardless of the charm they exuded or the sparkle in their eyes, it was enough to stir up the desire of any man.
“That’s really funny, Verner. They’re all just friends…”
Kai smiled awkwardly. Thereafter, he unleashed an undetectable amount of spiritual sense to engulf the group, hoping to gauge their level of cultivation.

Just as Kai’s spiritual sense was sent out, it was swiftly cut off by a mysterious power that every single one of them seemed to possess. The surprising result triggered a furrow of Kai’s brows.
When he saw the look on Kai’s face, Verner suggested cordially, “ Kai, you’re currently the strongest among the younger generation here. Whenever you have the time, shall we spar?”
“You must be kidding, Verner. There’s no way I’m your match. You have defeated tens of men in a single breath, shocking the entire martial arts world. I’m nothing but a sideshow when compared to you.”
Kai was extremely humble in his response, which took Verner by surprise. After all, no one expected someone as young and powerful as him to admit being inferior to someone else.
Consequently, Verner was amazed when Kai ridiculed himself by admitting he was a sideshow.
“ Kai, there’s no way you’re capable of establishing a sect if you’re that weak. In fact, you’re the only person to have done so at such a young age. Thus, there’s no need to be humble. All of us are well aware of your strength, which is the reason why we’re hoping.
you can show us a thing or two. I’m sure you’ll oblige, won’t you?” At that moment, Marcelo of the Garcia family finally spoke in a hostile tone.
Despite the minute change in Kai’s expression, he simply smiled in return. “Marcelo, I’m happy to spar with you, but today isn’t the day.”
“Fine. In that case, name a day, and I’ll see you at the martial arts arena.”
Marcelo was anxious for it to happen. Before Kai could reply, a voice outside rang out suddenly. “President Norton of the Warriors Alliance has arrived.”
The mention of the Warriors Alliance gave everyone a shock, for it was public knowledge that they and Kai were mortal enemies.
Why have they come? Are they here to congratulate Kai or to cause trouble? As a grim look descended upon Kai’s face, Godrick immediately ordered his men to take up defensive positions.
They had to be prepared for battle in the event the Warriors Alliance had come bearing hostile intentions. Soon, Skylar strode in together with a young man who was casually dressed.
What seemed strange was that Skylar was following the man from behind, as if he was a subordinate.
“Skylar, what are you doing here? Are you trying to cause trouble?” Kai threw Skylar an icy glare. “If you try anything funny today, I’ll obliterate you from the face of the earth.”
Just as Skylar was about to speak, he was stopped by the young man.
“I suppose you must be Kai Chance. I’m Jake Gasper, the current leader of the Warriors Alliance. I have replaced Skylar in the role due to his failings. I understand that there has been some misunderstanding between you and the Warriors Alliance. Therefore, I have come here today to mend our relationship and to congratulate you on founding a sect at such a young age. Here is a present to show my sincerity.”
Jake gestured with his hand the moment he finished. Thereafter, a reluctant Skylar handed over his scepter. “The Warriors Alliance offers you this sacred martial arts relic as a humble gift,” Jake explained with a slight smile on his face..
When they saw the Warriors Alliance present such a valuable present, many in the crowd gasped in awe while the eyes of some glistened in envy. Despite Kai’s surprise, he still reached out to accept the scepter.
Holding it in his hand, Kai instantly injected a surge of spiritual energy into it. However, a smirk soon spread across his face. “If my guess is correct, this scepter can only be used a few more times, at the most.”
He hadn’t believed the Warriors Alliance’s sudden change of heart was sincere. It turned out that there wasn’t much residual power in the scepter, leaving it on the brink of shattering.
The power of sacred martial arts relics was limited. Hence, wielding such a weapon wasn’t the equivalent of having a Martial Arts Saint by one’s side.

A sacred martial arts relic was just a weapon used by a Martial Arts Saint which had absorbed the power of its user through years of usage.
Nonetheless, once all the energy it contained was expended, it would naturally break apart if not recharged further. Jake eked out an awkward smile. “Even a sacred martial arts relic that can only be used once is extremely valuable.”
Ignoring Jake’s words, Kai flung the scepter back as he sneered, “This place isn’t a garbage dump. Whatever trash you have, take it back.”
The crowd was bewildered to hear Kai refer to the sacred martial arts relic as trash. As his brows furrowed, Jake’s aura swelled rapidly within him, engulfing the entire hall with a tremendous force.
It was evident that his aura was significantly more powerful than Kai’s. “If a fight is what you want, let’s go outside. Don’t destroy the things I have here, as you can’t afford to pay for them.”
Kai was unfazed by Jake’s aura. Reading the situation, Jake gradually retracted his aura before asking Kai, “In that case, Mr. Chance, is there anything you want in particular? We’ll definitely give it to you as long as it’s within our power to do so. All that matters is that both of us make peace.”
“I want his life. Can you give it to me?” Kai demanded as he pointed a finger at Skylar. The request put Jake on the spot while striking terror into Skylar.
If Jake accedes to the request, wouldn’t it mean my death?
“President Gasper, don’t believe the lies he’s spewing! He tricked us the last time over the location of the ancient ruins.”
Skylar was fearful that Jake would agree. “Mr. Chance, I’m sincere in my effort to mend ties with you,” Jake appealed with a flat smile,
cognizant that Kai was fooling around with him.
“I’m not going to mend any f*cking ties with you!” Kai cursed with a scowl on his face. “You locked up my girlfriend for such a long time, and now, you want to make peace? As long as there’s still breath in me, the Warriors Alliance will be my mortal enemy, and I’ll stop at nothing to annihilate all of you! Now, stop being an eyesore and get lost before I throw you out!”
The guests were utterly shaken by Kai’s tirade. It was obvious to them how powerful Jake was from the aura he unleashed, and yet, Kai showed no fear at all.
Consequently, Kai’s insult caused Jake’s expression to darken. “ Kai, I hope you know what’s good for you. You alone are not worthy to take on the Warriors Alliance,” Jake scoffed.
“Not worthy?” Kai sneered. “If I’m not, why did you come here? Don’t think that I’m oblivious to the secrets of the Warriors Alliance. You are nothing but a group that’s being controlled by spirits. In fact, I’m sure there’s also a spirit within your body, isn’t there? Once I absorb those old fogeys who have lived for thousands of years, let’s see how the Warriors Alliance can still behave with such impunity.”
Kai had exposed the Warriors Alliance in front of the guests, blowing everyone’s mind away with the revelation. “What nonsense! It looks like I’ll have to teach you a lesson to put you in your place!”
No sooner had Jake spoken than his aura exploded, causing the temperature in the room to drop rapidly. Those who were weaker began to suffocate, as if they had fallen into a cave made of ice.
As a sharp glint flashed across his eyes, Kai’s body began to glow with a golden hue, desperately resisting Jake’s aura. Despite the circumstances, Kai refrained from striking, for doing so would render the day’s ceremony a failure.
At the crucial moment before a massive battle broke out, a gentle breeze blew past, snuffing out both Kai’s and Jake’s aura in an instant.
Frowning in response, Jake looked out the door. “Why is someone causing trouble on such a festive occasion? Has the security of Jadeborough’s martial arts world deteriorated to this extent?”
No sooner had the resonant voice rang out than Arthur sauntered into the hall.
