It seemed that the heavenly thunder fruit had some sort of connection with Thunder Palm. Will Thunder Palm become stronger if I eat this heavenly thunder fruit?
“Are you okay, Mr. Chance?” Crixus called out to him. He got worried when he saw Kai standing there completely motionless.
“I’m fine!” Kai replied as he put the heavenly thunder fruit into his pocket and jumped out of the crater. Tyrone and the old woman had conflicted looks on their faces as they stared at Kai.
“Well? Do you believe that I can pluck the heavenly thunder fruits on my own now? All you have to do is stall the guys from the Nesser family while I pluck as many heavenly thunder fruits as possible. You saw how hard it was for me to get a single heavenly thunder fruit, so you should understand why I can’t share it with you guys equally. You’ll get three at most!” Kai said to Tyrone and the old woman.
In reality, Kai wasn’t even planning on giving them any of the heavenly thunder fruits. He only said all that to earn their trust.
Besides, Kai knew full well that it would be impossible for him to get all ten heavenly thunder fruits even with his tough physical body and Golem Body.
The lightning bolts would surely have him reduced to ashes if he were to go for all ten heavenly thunder fruits.
Tyrone stared at Kai for a few seconds before shifting his gaze toward the old woman. “All right, we’ll settle for three, but you need to pick up the pace. I don’t think we’ll be able to hold Cameron off for long!”
Tyrone knew that they could only stall Cameron through lies as they were no match for him at all. A single slap from Cameron could very well kill them on the spot.
Even so, they would not be able to stall Cameron for long with their lies, so they needed Kai to be quick about it as well. “Don’t worry!” Kai replied with a nod..
Tyrone then led the old woman out the cave. “Are you sure you can trust Tyrone, Mr. Chance? There’s no way he’d let you leave if you ended up severely wounded by the lightning bolts!” Crixus warned Kai.
Kai’s lips curled into a smile as he replied, “There’s no way I’d trust him! I will never let him have the heavenly thunder fruits, I want you three to search for other ways out of this cave. I doubt Thunderhawk’s cave has only one exit! If you guys manage to find another exit, I’ll flee through it after getting the heavenly thunder fruits!”
Salazar nodded when he found out that Kai had come up with a plan. They then split up and started searching the cave for another exit. Kai took a deep breath and jumped up the heavenly thunder tree again.
Meanwhile, the massacre continued outside Hawk King Cave. In order to keep the cultivators out of Hawk King Cave, the demon beasts attacked them with everything they had.
Cameron was engaged in a fierce battle with the huge Bloodthirsty Thunderhawk, and they were both evenly matched for the time being. As no one noticed Tyrone and the old woman coming out of the cave, they quickly joined the battle.
This time, however, they secretly told the cultivators, whom Tyrone had brought from the airship, to conserve their strength in case the Nesser family’s men tried to hog the heavenly thunder fruits for themselves.
As Tyrone was the one who brought them over, they believed him readily and began holding back on their attacks to conserve their strength. Only the men from the Nesser family were giving it their all while fighting the demon beasts.
Realizing that he could not kill the Bloodthirsty Thunderhawk swiftly, Cameron shouted, “Mr. Stone, come give me a hand with two of your men! Let’s kill this Bloodthirsty Thunderhawk together!”
“Hang in there, Mr. Nesser! We’ve got our hands tied up here as well!” Tyrone shouted back at him.
