"You will not able dodge this!" he said and attacked me again, this time his speed seemed to increase little more.
I looked at him weirdly, if your attack going to only this fast then why did you talk this big!
I was really expecting him to use his speed skill at the limit but he still holds back.
I didn't plan to dodge his attack this time, I want to counter it.
"Clank!" I clashed my sword against him and before he could stabilize himself, I attacked at his chest.
"Bam!" my sword hit him squarely on his and he had to step back due to blow.
I was about to launch a follow-up attack when he activated his speed skill again and put some distance between us.
He drank potion after he put some distance between us, throwing away potion, he looked at me intently while his sword started to glow in light blue color.
He is using his attack type skill, I thought and activated my knight grade s.h.i.+eld for the defense.
As his sword glowed, next second he started the swing in my direction, numerous wind blades started to come off his sword.
One wind blade seemed to stronger than others.
Seeing wind blades coming toward me swiftly, I adjusted my position readied myself for defense.
"Bam! Bam! Bam!….." One after another wind blade started to collided against my s.h.i.+eld.
These wind blades are very different from the normal wind blades, they are very sharp, sharp enough to be able to cut through any part of my body.
If I had been defending this attack with a normal s.h.i.+eld, I would have felt p.r.i.c.king pain all over my body.
Its good thing, I've defended them with my knight grade s.h.i.+eld, all I am is a slight pain.
I defined against wind blades with my s.h.i.+eld while keeping an eye on the moment of my opponent.
I was right to do that as after he launched tens of wind blades one after another, he activated his speed type skill again but this time it is very different.
Not only he activated his speed type skill to the limit, but he also seemed to activate another skill, which increased his speed even more.
Sneaky b.a.s.t.a.r.d! All that anger and the big talk was all facade, earlier using his speed type skill and then launching wind blade attack was all part of my plan.
He had seen my score and with little intelligence, one can definitely estimate my power and he would have definitely read the details about me after he knew I am his opponent.
He presented himself as a weak opponent who would fight till last even knowing I had knight grade skill.
If I had been a little naive, I would have definitely fallen into his trap.
From the start of the fight, I've realized his plan and despite that, I didn't use knight grade skill.
I did that because I wanted to know if he had any trump but most importantly I didn't want to confirm that I had a knight grade skill.
It's one thing knowing I had knight grade skill while it's totally another thing confirming I have it.
I have to keep it a mystery, made them question if I have really had a knight grade skill or not but for that I have to pay some price.
The price is to reveal some of my strength, like the knight grade s.h.i.+eld I am using.
I am sure there are many sharp-eyed people who were employed by many magazines and sites to estimate and predict the strength of each partic.i.p.ant.
Some of them have definitely have noticed I am using knight grade s.h.i.+eld and my profile would have been already updated about it.
To win one not only need power but also strategy, with the clever strategy you could go further than using raw power.
Though it is the power that is most important but having a strategy with it helps a lot.
As the for my opponent coming toward me, to others, it would be very dangerous but to me, I will be able to handle.
my opponent coming toward me with extreme speed, his speed is 50% faster than my speed which I used to get away from Corporal stage fatty.
It will take a fraction of second for his sword to attack me, it is very hard to activate skill in such little time, especially those who below corporal level.
This guy planned his attack at perfect timing, if his attack hit, it will give him a 70% chance to win this fight.
"Furfur fur fur…." suddenly jets of fire ignited behind and me and that sword which is about to strike me dodged by inches.
This is my instant movement move, it gave me double to the speed of my speed type skill.
This move is very good but very risky, every time I used it, I have a fear in my mind, that something will go wrong and I will stumble.
Unlike skill, I have to constantly maintain the power of nine fire jets behind my back a slight mistake and I will stumble very badly.
Another thing about this move is that I could use it for only two seconds if I tried to use it more time than that, then I will surely stumble.
'Gasp!' i could hear the gasp of the audience by my move and I am quite proud of hearing it also, I would have definitely revealed in it if not I have an opponent to beat.
Using the last power of my jet, I steered my self at my opponent and attack my opponent toward its head.
He must have an inkling that I would attack as just after his attack failed, he activated his defense skill and bubble of air formed around him.
As my sword touches the air bubble, it felt little obstruction but not enough to stop its momentum.
"Clank!" my sword hit on its head hard, if not for him wearing protective artifact around its head my sword would have sliced it apart but still i is a quite powerful blow.
"fur!" Without waiting for him out of himself, I alight the fire jet behind my right and attacked hit again at his head.
''Clank!" He had activated his speed type skill and about to get away but my sword was too fast, it hit his head again.
I was about to prepare another attack when he put some distance between us.
"Furfur fur fur…!" I am not going to give him any chances to attack him, I have already given him enough.
I followed him with the instant moment, he must have sensed, I am following behind him and was turning back his head when he saw my sword right in front of his eyes.
''Clank!" My sword struck again before he could muster his defense.
This time he used my attack to put some distance between us and I will need a second more before I could activate the instant movement.
He was not going last long, I had already injured him quite well through his artifacts.
Wearing artifact does not guarantee absolute safely, every artifact had limited and if your attacks go beyond that limit then, it will going to injure your opponent.
if I continued my attack, he will either surrender or will lose consciousness due to my attack.
"Furfur fur fur fur fur!..." I again activated instant movement and moved toward him, he also some activated some kind of skill and attacked toward me.
This skill had covered both of his hands in the layer of wind, it had an increased speed of his attacks immensely.
This skill seems new, it was not in his profile but I did not worry too much about it.
''Clank!" Both of sword clashed and immediate shock traveled in my arms that I have to take a step back to stabilize my body but when I looked at my opponent he seemed to take four to five steps to stabilize himself.
Perfect chance! I said and activated the instant movement.
"Furfur fur...." I Activated instant movement and Sped toward him, this is the perfect chance for me to attack.
He just stabilized himself and no condition to activate his skill.
With such close distance, I got beside him in next moment with him looking at me with wide and move to his sword to intercept mine but it was too late as my sword inches away from his head.
"Clank!" My sword hit him hard on his head and I was about to launch another attack when I noticed he falling on the floor and stopped my attack.
"Thud!" His body fell on the floor with a thud while I looked little surprised with my sword stopped mid-air.
