Chapter 64. Gathering (6)
Weekly Chapter (5/6)
A head-to-head fight would be beneficial to Felix.
The spectators also calmed down.
Damien could not accept this provocation because his teacher’s honor would be tarnished, so he had to take revenge right now.
The inconsequential fight turned into a duel for honor.
The presenter then announced the start of the third round.
Felix, who took a big leap, swung his sword down towards Damien. His move was exaggerated.
He didn’t care that Damien counterattacked some breach after he had dodged the attack.
But he didn’t.
He blocked the attack without moving back a bit.
Felix, who straightened his stance, swung his sword at Damien again. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
A one-sided offensive.
It was very similar to when he overpowered Jullien.
Everyone expected Damien to lose.
The spectators raised their eyebrows.
None celebrated Felix’s offense because it had been rude.
Damien endured against everyone’s expectations.
He didn’t move an inch.
And with each time their swords clashed, Felix’s hand grew more numb.
It was as if he hit a rock.
What is this?
Felix started to panic.
He used his weight to press down on Damien.
But he didn’t back down in the slightest.
Rather, he stepped forward to push Felix.
Damien had more strength than he did.
Felix was startled.
How does he have so much strength?
It seemed illogical to him.
Then he jumped forward again.
Felix swung his sword down at Damien.
And he didn’t dodge the attack, but counterattacked hard.
The wooden swords clashed. Immediately, Felix shouted.
His wooden sword flew through the air. He grabbed his sore wrist.
Damien was superior even in a straight fight.
Victory was decided, but Damien didn’t want to end it.
He simply stood still.
The spectators remained silent.
Damien spoke for the first time.
“Pick it up.”
He glared at Damien.
“Do you want me to pick up the wooden sword again?”
“I’ll give you another chance.”
His words struck Felix’s self-esteem.
He gritted his teeth. He picked up the wooden sword on the ground with a reddened face.
He got back into position, but his arms were shaking.
He rushed towards him angrily.
Damien approached him.
Felix’s body involuntarily stopped.
Damien attacked in a clearly predictable trajectory.
He tried to block the attack with all his might, but his wooden sword went flying.
Felix rolled over in pain.
His wrists were red from the impact. His ligaments were torn.
But the fight wasn’t over yet.
Damien picked up the wooden sword on the ground and threw it at him.
“Pick it up.”
Felix looked at Damien.
It was then that he realized he had messed with the wrong person.
“I’ve lost, I’ve lost!”
When he gave up, Damien finally lowered his wooden sword.
Damien bent down to whisper a few last words to Felix.
Soon Felix’s face turned pale.
Then Damien left the arena.
Bologna, Nancy and other nobles followed Damien.
“What’s all the fuss about?”
After a day’s stay in the main building of the Knight Order, Sylverine and Damien returned to the mansion early in the morning.
Damien had his chin resting on the carriage window as he looked out at the scenery.
“It was a simple fight.”
“Then why did those nobles shout so excitedly?”
“They were curious about my abilities.”
“And why did you receive so many gifts?”
Next to Damien’s seat were many wrapped gifts and letters.
“I don’t know. They just gave them to me.”
Sylverine, who could not stand her curiosity, picked up a letter.
The letter contained the address where the young woman lived, plus the words that she wanted to stay in contact with Damien.
“You are very popular.”
“And what did you talk about during the fight?”
Damien pretended to be puzzled.
“Don’t try to lie to me. I was in the main building, looking out the window, why were you so angry?”
Sylverine didn’t know the details because she was far away.
“He called me a midget.”
She looked at Damien sympathetically. Damien was no smaller than the average man, but Felix was too tall in comparison.
“Don’t worry. You’re bigger than when you first saw him. You’ll soon catch up.”
Damien calmly replied.
“That’s a relief.”
He seemed lost in thought as he gazed at the mountains in the distance.
“So what did you tell that guy?”
“I told him I’d see him again at the Eternia entrance exam.”
She looked at him with narrowed eyes.
He left out some details.
It looked like Damien didn’t want to tell everything that happened last night.
But she abandoned her curiosity.
It’s good that he solves problems on his own.
