Chapter 1523 - Shocked!
"Abyssal Star Inheritance, nothing special about it," Elijah said as he pushed Jill into the forcefield,
"I had thought I would get some real challenge from you, but your strength was just so-so," Elijah added as he licked his bloodied teeth.
The whole crowd is watched in shock as Elijah defeated Jill, holder of Legendary Inheritance that once shocked the world, and now, another holder of it lay defeated by the forcefield.
Elijah is mocking Jill, and all she could do is looked at him with a look of defeat. It is clear she is crushed by her defeat, and Elijah's mocking had crushed her further.
She had the Inheritance of Ramona Hawthorn, and Jill the first person to get the same Inheritance as her.
The Inheritance came expectations, people judging her every move and her every Battle to her s.h.i.+ning predecessor.
The pressure she had on her fragile shoulder was immense, and she had worked her a.s.s off not let down those expectations from her organization and the whole world, and till now, she had done everything perfectly, winning every Battle in perfect textbook style, but this defeat had crushed her and crushed what she had done till now.
Losing one Battle did not mean anything, but this Battle is her everything, and the mocking she had got made everything worse.
I could see a single tear coming off from her left eye as she begins to walk out of the arena with a face full of disappointment she is feeling toward herself.
"The Winner is Elijah James of Sundering Peak!" Marla announced, and the crowd began to cheer; though they cheered loudly, their cheer was uneven as if they can't decide cheer or not, and now everybody around them cheers; they also cheered but could not able to bring the same amount of cheer as before.
"Now that Elijah James has won the Battle, there will be no second semifinal battle; instead, Elijah James and Micheal Zaar will fight the final tomorrow," Marla announced, and the crowd cheered at the prospect of final, and their cheer was consistent this time.
"I hope you will be able to put good performance tomorrow and not be a disappointment as her," Elijah said while smiling wolfishly before leaving the partic.i.p.ant's area.
I did not reply to him, just continued to look at his back and think about the feeling I had felt from him a second ago. When he talked to me, he did not reveal any aura, but for some reason, all hairs from my body stood up.
This reaction was enough to let me know that Elijah is far stronger than he had shown in his Battle with Jill, and it couldn't help but shock the h.e.l.l out of me, asking myself, how could one be this powerful?
I had experienced h.e.l.l to get the strength I have and but Elijah just gave me the feeling that he could crush me in a single more; only very powerful Emperors have given me such dangerous feeling, but Elijah is clearly a King, if he were not, he would not have been able to step into the arena.
Aside from Marla, whose aura is registered into the arena's interface, no people other than the Kings could walk on it, forget that, in the great hall, there are very powerful people sitting there, Iven even heard there are two living fossils present there, with them under control, it impossible to fool.
Even when one using the artifact, one could not fool the old monsters; they have more powerful artifacts on them.
I shook my head and walked out of the partic.i.p.ant's area; the feeling I got from Elijah had put huge pressure on me.
I do not fear losing, even if it is the Battle of World Champions.h.i.+p, but for some strange reason, my heart is telling me that I could not lose to Elijah; I have to try my all to win tomorrow's Battle.
This strange compulsion from my heart is putting even more pressure on me, and now I will have to win in any condition.
Soon I met Professor Josephine and others from the Academy, and we flew toward the mansion, I wanted to meet my parents, but my father told me they would meet me tomorrow before the Battle.
"It was quite a battle. I had not that this Elijah would be this strong to defeat Jillian," Elina said with a slight shudder, and I couldn't help but nod.
"Today is a good lesson for both of you never underestimate any opponent; always keep an open mind in the battle," advised Professor Josephine.
"Council offered training to that girl, but our request had been denied; if we had trained that girl for even six months, the result of the battle would have been completely different,"
"We had produced the Ramona Hawthorn, and the academy still had the capability to produce another one, those b.a.s.t.a.r.ds from Hawthorn Sea too proud to let a lowly Emperor Grade organization train their precious jewel," said Professor Jenkins, clearly revealing in joy Hawthorns Sea's defeat.
Hearing that, I couldn't help but let out a sigh; professor Jenkins is wrong to say that.
It is not Jill's fault that she lost the Battle; she had tried her all and never dared to underestimate her opponent; her only fault is that her opponent is too strong and very skilled.
I had called her before exciting the partic.i.p.ant's area, but holowatch is switched off; I called her brother William who picked up and said she is fine, but I know she is anything but fine; it is quite a blow.
Soon we reached the Manor, and the professor asked everyone to leave, including Elina and Professor Jenkins, and now, only two of us remained converted isolation field cast by the professor.
"Will you finished the upgrade tonight?" She asked; only a few people know the progress of my Inheritance, and the professor is one of them.
"Yes, I will be done with the upgrade within three hours," I replied, "Good, I will ready the formation then," she said and left while I remained in the garden minute more before left for my room; there is too much to do tonight.
