The Evolution of a Goblin to the Peak - Chapter 376
Chapter 376 – Battling Cirus
“Oh? So you’re hiding your real strength. I thought that you’re not as strong as that girl. Well, this makes it easy. Come and let me test you.” Cirus said with a smile as his anger subsided when he felt Souta’s mana.
“Sir, his energy level is ridiculously high. It’s the first time I saw something like this.” Alyssa said to Cirus. She was stunned at the energy oozing out of Souta’s body.
She met dozens of Master-class Knight before but Souta had the highest energy level among them. And she knew that Souta wasn’t releasing all of it.
“It’s fine. Don’t worry about it. It’s just a spar.” Cirus said to Alyssa. He then turned to Souta and said, “I didn’t think that you’re a Master-class Knight too. Forgive me for my rudeness before. In return, I will use all of my strength as a show of my respect.”
The officials that were watching from the sideline were shocked too. They couldn’t believe it. The man that they thought was weak was actually a Master-class Knight. A person that was standing at the top of this world in terms of individual strength.
Janford, the secretary governor, narrowed his eyes while looking at Souta.
‘This man will be hard to control…’
He thought. Then, he turned to Alice and finally understood why she was listening to him.
Before he met them, he already heard that the Master-class Knight was a beautiful woman. Some of the people suggested to him that he should seduce the Master-class Knight woman. Since she came from Tunbra forest, she must have never seen someone as handsome as him.
He didn’t immediately agree with their decision but when he saw the Master-class Knight, he decided to follow them. It wouldn’t be bad if he makes her his own considering how beautiful she is. He thought that it would be easy but when they talked, Alice didn’t even show emotion when talking with them.
She was only showing emotion when talking to the man with one arm. That man was just a tamer and his face was average. But Janford didn’t think that Souta was a Master-class Knight all along.
“I see… So that’s why…”
He muttered as he turned his attention back to Souta.
“Is that the new Master-class Knight…?!”
“I heard that they said that it’s a beautiful woman!”
“I don’t know but that man is going to fight Sir Cirus!”
“If he is really a Master-class then it’s going to be interesting!”
“A fight between Master-class. I haven’t seen something like this before.”
The guards said while looking at Souta and Cirus who were at the center of the field.
Souta grinned as he slowly pulled the vajra sword from its sheath. He opened his mouth and said, “If you don’t want to go first then I’ll go.”
As soon as he said those words he disappeared from his position.
Souta quickly shifted his body. After that, he thrust his sword forward.
Just like that the battle between the two Master-class Knights started.
“Who do you think is going to win?” Janford asked Alyssa, the vice-head of the Military Department.
“Among the four Master-class Knight of our country Cirus is ranked third but he had the most destructive brute strength among the four Master-class Knight.” Alyssa paused for a moment before she added, “We don’t know the capability of that man so we can’t be sure who’s going to win this battle.”
“I see…” Janford nodded at her explanation.
While the fight was ongoing the other three Master-class Knight of the Gyunar Republic appeared. They weren’t going to miss something like this. A battle between the two Master-class Knights was rare.
A short man with long black hair that was tied in a ponytail said, “Is that the new Master-class Knight? I thought that it’s a girl.”
The short man was wearing black tight clothes. He had two daggers hanging on his waist. He was Paul, the second rank Master-class Knight of the Gyunar Republic. He was the head of the secret ops of the country.
“Yes, but it seems that the girl’s comrade is also a Master-class…” A woman wearing a silver-colored armor was the one who answered Paul’s question.
Her name was Frederica, the fourth rank Master-class Knight of the Gyunar Republic. She was also the one who handled training the soldiers of the country.
“A pair of Master-class. They are a walking disaster that could destroy a country.” A tall man wearing exquisite armor said. His name was Andrew, the first rank Master-class Knight and the head guard of the president of the country.
All four Master-class Knights were nobles. They were duke and duchess, standing at the top of the country.
Naturally, their appearance gathered Souta’s attention. He senses the energy coming out of these three people that suddenly appeared in the training ground.
The whole area was silent as all the people that were watching the battle opened their eyes widely. They couldn’t believe what they were seeing right now.
“Sir! Be careful!” Alyssa shouted with a concerned look on her face.
All the Master-class that were watching the battle frowned at the sight on the field. The battle was something that they didn’t expect at all.
At the field, Cirus was standing while his sword was in front of him.
Sweat was forming in his forehead and his breathing was heavy. Cirus couldn’t move from his position.
‘Is going on?’
He felt his arm going numb. He couldn’t find an opportunity to attack as all he could do was defend himself against Souta’s attack.
‘Just what kind of person am I fighting with?!’
Souta slashed the vajra sword and mana blade shot from his sword. He kept shooting mana towards Cirus who couldn’t do anything.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Blueish mana with a hint of blackness pounded Cirus repeatedly in all directions.
After Souta upgraded his [Sword Mastery] skill, he could do this easily without having a problem. He felt that his sword was like a part of his body and it was moving according to his thoughts.
‘Shit! I didn’t think that he would be this strong!’
He gathered his mana in his sword. He roared loudly as he slashed it forward.
A wave of mana flew out of his sword and it hit nothing. He was surprised to see that Souta wasn’t there but how could he move so fast.
He heard a sound behind him and he quickly turned around. He saw Souta with his eyes closed with a smile on his face.
“I didn’t think that I would meet someone as strong as you. I thoroughly enjoy it…” Souta said as he slowly opened his eyes and looked at Cirus. “But it seems your reaching your limit.”
“Damn!” Cirus roared as he charged towards Souta. He gathered all of his mana in his sword and swung it downwards.
The ground shook heavily and a large cut appeared on it. It was powerful that the shockwaves swept out in the surrounding area forcing the Master-class Knights to create a barrier to protect the people that were watching the battle.
Cirus was breathing heavily. The guy he was facing was stronger than all the people that he’d fought before in his entire life. His power was only weaker to a dragon.
“I must admit it. This place is very sturdy yet you managed to cut it. You possessed incredible strength.”
His muscles tensed up when he heard Souta’s voice. He looked ahead and saw Souta standing beside his sword.
“As strong as a guild master of Adventurers Guild. However,” Souta slowly raised the vajra sword and gathered his mana on its blade. “I now find this boring…”
Red energy formed around the blade of his sword and Souta dashed towards Cirus while swinging it.
A bright red light flashed out on the field as the entire training ground shook heavily. The red energy swallowed Cirus body and a loud explosion occurred.
Alyssa shouted with a worried expression on her face.
The rest of the officials couldn’t believe it at all. They felt like they were watching an a.d.u.l.t bullying a child. It was so easy on Souta’s side. He made it looked fighting Cirus so easy.
Souta was standing in the middle of a large crater with smoke and dust beside him. He slowly placed the vajra sword in its sheath.
The higher-ups of the Gyunar Country saw something above them in terms of individual strength. They finally saw something that they haven’t seen in their entire life.
