Weekly Chapter (3/5)
It would be better for him to surrender before he suffered serious wounds. Even if he could fight his way through the planteras with some trickery, he would still have to fight the talented Flynn.
Damien breathed heavily for a while.
Suddenly, small changes appeared in his body.
Gael narrowed her eyes.
His eyes glowed a golden color.
She didn’t know if that was due to the effect of an artifact or if he had ingested a special potion, but Gael didn’t think that was enough to get a good result.
Damien once again rushed towards the planteras.
Immediately, the planteras attacked him.
And Gael’s predictions were wrong.
He twisted his body slightly to avoid the wooden swords.
Damien’s movements had remarkably improved .
The aggressiveness of the planteras had increased, but Damien had also improved.
He began to actively attack, unlike his previous attempts.
He thrust his sword into the ankle joint of a plantera, while wooden swords came at him in all directions.
He stepped back to evade the plantera’s attacks, then thrust the sword again into the plantera’s ankle. He repeated the attack until its ankle was broken.
He concentrated the attack on the most vulnerable area.
He did the same with a plantera in the third line. After the plantera fell with a broken ankle, he stood on its body so it could be attacked by the other planteras.
Damien dodged the attacks, so they impacted the plantera on the ground.
The plantera was immobilized because its four limbs were shattered.
Damien immediately ran to the fourth line. The planteras from the previous lines quickly pursued.
Gael swallowed saliva.
After three attempts, he found a strategy. Even students who had received intense training would have given up when they saw such a huge difference in power.
But that boy had finally found a way to break through.
It was then that Gael could understand why Sylverine had accepted him.
There were many students at the Academy who entered because they had good swordsmanship. Only geniuses could enter the Academy. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
This boy demonstrated an innate sense for combat.
Even if he did not pass this evaluation, he would be an outstanding student in Eternia, provided he performed proper training with the sword.
Of course, she did not believe he could become a Sword Master.
Damien had a hard time before he got to the fourth line, because the planteras from the previous lines were attacking him.
It was impossible for anyone to dodge that huge offensive.
There were less than four minutes left.
If she considered the fight with Flynn, he was practically eliminated. He could not use tricks on Flynn but had to defeat him with his sword.
Damien also knew that time was running out, so he immediately tried to pass the planteras of the fourth line. He ducked to avoid the wooden sword, then stepped on the thigh of a plantera and jumped forward.
He was momentarily exposed because he was in the air.
A plantera from the fourth line extended its hand toward his leg.
Damien made his final attack before it had grabbed his leg.
He threw the sword hard towards Flynn. The sword spun in the air.
Flynn repelled the attack.
The sword that was repelled was stuck in a distant place.
The plantera threw Damien like a stone to the ground.
He arrived back at the starting point.
He had three minutes left.
This was probably his last attempt.
Now not even the sword was in his hand. The planteras, who were aggressive due to the previous confrontation, began to approach Damien.
All the evaluators remained silent.
Gael was about to intervene when Elizabeth raised her hand to stop her.
Gael looked at Elizabeth with a puzzled look on her face. She smiled.
Damien slowly picked himself up off the ground. Then he knelt down on one knee.
The planteras looked quite aggressive, as if he were a demonic beast.
But it seemed that he didn’t plan to run away or evade their attacks.
Gael couldn’t understand it.
Damien did nothing. He simply closed his eyes, as he had done at first.
The planteras quickly surrounded him.
And at the moment they attacked with their swords, a light appeared.
