“What do you two want?” Jared asked while glaring at Emiliano and Avery. “Nothing much, really. This Spirit Connecting Fruit is a very rare item that everybody wants, but not everyone has what it takes to get it. There are a total of eight Spirit Connecting Fruits here. Avery can have five; I’ll settle for three. As for you… Not only will you receive none, but you’ll also have to die here!” Emiliano replied and activated his aura.
I wanted to kill Jared a long time ago, but I couldn’t do so because Avery kept protecting him! I know Avery won’t choose Jared over Spirit Connecting Fruits, so I’m willing to offer him five if he’ll refrain from helping Jared!
Sure enough, Avery’s lips curled into a satisfied grin as he stopped defending Jared. Jared’s eyes were filled with disdain as he glared at Emiliano.
“You’ll have to continue training for another ten years before you even think about killing me!” he said with a snort. Emiliano exploded with anger the moment he heard that. “Now that I’ve modified my genes, killing you will be a piece of cake!”
His ego had received a huge boost ever since he had his genes modified. His body exuded a terrifyingly powerful aura as he launched himself into the air and delivered a punch from above. The punch had so much power in it that it created shockwaves as it traveled through the air.
With a cold look in his eyes, Jared activated Golem Body and shrouded himself with a golden glow. A golden dragon coiled around his arm as he channeled the Power of Dragons into his fist. The roar of a dragon could be heard as he unleashed a devastating punch in Emiliano’s direction.
Boom! A deafening boom echoed throughout the area as a shockwave of martial energy spread out in all directions. It knocked everyone off balance and sent some of them flying, but the Spirit Connecting Tree was completely unaffected by it.
Not a single one of its leaves moved in the slightest. Emiliano felt a tight sensation in his chest upon impact. A few seconds later, he coughed up a huge mouthful of blood and fell to the ground with a loud thud.
“Mr. Fairchild!” The disciples of Stormwind Sect quickly ran forward to help him up. Avery couldn’t help but gasp in shock when he saw the amount of damage Jared did to Emiliano in a single punch.
Emiliano’s forehead creased with frustration as he wiped the blood off the corner of his mouth. I can’t believe I’m still no match for Jared even after strengthening myself with genetic modifications!
“I told you, you are not powerful enough to kill me right now. You should try again after cultivating for another ten years. A weakling like you doesn’t deserve to have these Spirit Connecting Fruits,” Jared said coldly.
Having witnessed how powerful Jared was, Avery stepped forward and said with a smile, “Since we entered the ancient ruins of Narcissus Palace together, how about we split the Spirit Connecting Fruits? I’ll only take four, so you and Emiliano can split the remaining four among yourselves. That way, you both get to walk away with two of these Spirit Connecting Fruits!”
Heh… Fat chance! I bet he wouldn’t even let me have a single Spirit Connecting Fruit if I didn’t show him my strength! With that in mind, Jared said coldly, “Dream on! Why should I let you have four Spirit Connecting Fruits? Because you’re a feminine guy? I want all eight of these Spirit Connecting Fruits, so you guys can either leave now or die here! The choice is yours!”
Avery’s face grew cold the moment he heard what Jared said. Whatever friendliness he had earlier was gone in an instant. “Do you really think you can get away with anything simply because you defeated Emiliano? I was kind enough to let you have two Spirit Connecting Fruits, but you just had to be a greedy and ungrateful b*stard…”
Avery narrowed his eyes as waves of murderous intent surged through his body.
