Chapter 2166-2167


Caleb’s impressive techniques left the martial artists in awe. They couldn’t believe that two simple pieces of paper had such immense power, effortlessly subduing the Predator.

“No way! He took down the leader just like that?” Ruby’s eyes widened in astonishment. She hadn’t taken Caleb seriously before, thinking he was too young and probably not very strong.

However, the outcome surprised her greatly. The ferocious Predator was already knocked down before she could even process what was happening.

Throughout the whole ordeal, Caleb hadn’t even budged from his spot. He just casually waved his hand a few times.

“So this is the strength of the new generation genius from Sacred Wrym Summit? Truly remarkable!” Miles exclaimed in admiration.

Sacred Wrym Summit was renowned for its array of esoteric techniques, including Glow Incantation, Stormcraft, and Divine Talisman.

However, mastering any of these was extremely difficult.

Most disciples of Sacred Wrym Summit primarily focused on mastering Glow Incantation. Only after mastering this could they move on to Stormcraft.

Similarly, only after mastering Stormcraft could they qualify to study Divine Talisman.

In other words, those who could use Divine Talisman were experts in Glow Incantation and Stormcraft. But at Sacred Wrym Summit, such individuals were scarce.

It typically took a grueling 50 years of training to master Glow Incantation and Stormcraft alone. Hence, mastering the Divine Talisman was an even greater feat.

Caleb, at such a young age, was effortlessly commanding Divine Talisman. He showcased talents and cultivation far surpassing those of self- proclaimed elites.

“To have mastered Divine Talisman to this extent, at least reaching a proficient level, at merely 17 or 18 is truly monstrous!” Crystal shook her head in disbelief, feeling a sense of powerlessness creeping in.

As an elite disciple of the Sword Union, she always had her pride. However, recent events had dealt her a heavy blow.

There were just too many geniuses around, whether it was Dustin, Kendricks, or Caleb, they were all much more formidable than her.

Even in encounters with the deceased Vincent and Aldric, she might not necessarily be a match for them.

She used to be the center of attention. But now, she felt overshadowed by these true prodigies, like a mere follower. It was somewhat lamentable.

Dalen narrowed his eyes and murmured, “The rumors were true after all. This little monk is definitely someone who could make it to the Legendary List.”

If he had any doubts before, he was certain now that Caleb would easily make it onto the Legendary List.

“Now that the job’s done, you two, take that guy back.”

After dealing with the Predator, Caleb yawned and directed two Sacred Wrym Summit disciples to clean up the scene.

As they were about to carry the Predator away, Dustin suddenly stepped forward.


Approaching the Predator, Dustin stood in front of him and said calmly, ” Gentlemen, there’s an order to things.

This guy is my prey. Taking him away like this wouldn’t be appropriate, would it?”


Upon hearing his words, Caleb, who was about to leave, immediately stopped and looked at Dustin with some curiosity.

The others exchanged puzzled looks. None of them expected Dustin to compete with Sacred Wrym Summit over an assassin.

The round-faced disciple from Sacred Wrym Summit said politely, “Sir, this man is extremely dangerous. He’s a huge threat. Keeping him around puts you in constant danger.

“It would be better for everyone if we, from Sacred Wrym Summit, take care of him. It’s for your own good.”

“You’re overthinking. If I can defeat him once, I can defeat him a hundred times. He won’t stir up much trouble in my hands,” Dustin replied with a smile.

“Sir, we’re doing this for your own good. Please cooperate,” the round- faced disciple insisted politely.

“Thank you for your concern, but this man is valuable to me. I can’t hand him over to you.” Dustin shook his head.

The Predator held too many secrets, whether it was about the assassination or his abilities after transformation. He needed to examine it thoroughly.

“Hey! You’re being unreasonable! If it weren’t for Master Caleb’s intervention, you might not have been able to capture this man!” Another tall disciple from Sacred Wrym Summit couldn’t help but interject.

Sacred Wrym Summit typically stayed out of worldly matters, but their presence commanded respect in the martial world. Wherever they went, they earned some respect.

However, they were taken aback by Dustin’s blatant disregard for respect.

Dustin said calmly, “Firstly, I appreciate the support of Sacred Wrym Summit, and I’m not being unreasonable.

“It’s just that we’ve worked so hard for so long to capture this man. If you take him away now, wouldn’t all our efforts be in vain?”

With that, the two disciples from Sacred Wrym Summit were at a loss for words, turning their gaze toward Caleb.

In truth, they didn’t quite understand why the usually aloof Caleb was interested in the assassin.

“You’ve got a point there, and honestly, I don’t know what to say.” Caleb nodded, agreeing with Dustin’s argument.

But then, in the next moment, he changed his tone, saying, “However, taking this guy back is my old man’s order.

“I can’t do anything about it. Consider it a favor owed to you today. How about that? If you ever need help in the future, feel free to ask us.”

With that statement, the scene became lively. Everyone’s gaze toward Dustin was filled with envy and jealousy.

What did a favor from Sacred Wrym Summit imply?

It was a golden opportunity that countless people dreamt of. If utilized properly, it could not only be a lifesaver but also a stepping stone to great success.

Moreover, it could even lead to becoming a dominant figure in the region.

As beings transcending both the martial world and the authorities, it wasn’t an exaggeration to say that anyone who received a favor from Sacred Wrym Summit could change their lives.

They never expected Caleb to be so generous, easily making such a promise.

Even the most foolish person wouldn’t reject such an opportunity for unprecedented wealth and glory.


“The offer from Sacred Wrym Summit sure is tempting.”

Dustin nodded in agreement.

Then, he suddenly said, “But I’m more interested in the person in front of me, so I’ll have to apologize to you all.”

Everyone was shocked to hear this, finding it difficult to believe. They couldn’t understand why Dustin would refuse such an opportunity.

They found it baffling. It was an opportunity that could change someone’s fate. Opportunities like this didn’t come knocking often, yet Dustin brushed it off like it was nothing.

They couldn’t help but wonder if he had lost his mind.

“What’s wrong with you, Dustin? Why would you turn down such a golden opportunity?” Miles asked, bewildered.

If it were him, he would be jumping for joy. But Dustin’s refusal seemed to go against the natural order of things, leaving Miles scratching his head.

“It seems Dustin thinks that the value of that assassin leader is higher than the favor from Sacred Wrym Summit,” Dalen remarked thoughtfully.

“What? What value could that assassin possibly have? He’s just a villain,” Ruby dismissed.

“Ruby, things aren’t always as they seem. If that person truly had no value, would Sacred Wrym Summit had their eyes on him?” Crystal said cryptically.

Sacred Wrym Summit usually stayed out of worldly affairs, but their decision to capture Predator hinted at something out of the ordinary.

They suspected that Dustin’s relentless pursuit was fueled by his insight into the underlying reasons behind it.

“Pal, you’re making it really difficult for me.” Caleb shrugged helplessly.

He figured a few smooth words would sway Dustin.

Unexpectedly, Dustin was stubborn and had zero regard for the prestige of Sacred Wrym Summit.

Caleb couldn’t help but find it both amusing and infuriating.

“Sacred Wrym Summit has quite the reputation. Surely, it wouldn’t bother with a nobody like me.” Dustin smiled, putting on a humble act.

Caleb replied, “I don’t know about you, but dealing with the old man back home can be a hassle. If we don’t bring this guy back today, I’ll never hear the end of it.”

He scratched his head, seeming to have an idea, then added, “How about we make a bet? Whoever wins gets to take this guy away.

“That way, we won’t damage our relationship, nor will we have to rack our brains. What do you say?”

“What are we betting on?” Dustin asked, amused.

“It’s simple. We bet whether you can move this guy,” Caleb said innocently. He went on, He’s currently pinned down by my Divine Talisman. If you can move him, you win. If not, you lose.

“Of course, I won’t make it too hard on you. You can ask for help, but you only get three chances. Are you game?”

“Since you’re so keen, I’ll play along,” Dustin agreed.

“Alright, it’s settled then. Go ahead.” Caleb gestured with one hand.

Behind him, two disciples of Sacred Wrym Summit exchanged knowing glances. They were well aware of the power of the Divine Talisman on Predator’s back.

Dustin alone, much less everyone there, couldn’t budge the Predator. Even the two disciples acknowledged that they were powerless against it.

“What’s this little monk up to? Just moving a person, what’s the big deal? Why would he deliberately bet like this? It’s like he’s conceding defeat?” Ruby wondered.

“You’re mistaken, Ruby.”

Miles pointed at the yellow talisman on the Predator’s back. “See that yellow talisman? That’s the renowned Summit Shift Divine Talisman of Sacred Wrym Summit!”

“The Summit Shift Divine Talisman? Is it really that powerful?” Ruby looked puzzled.

As someone new to the martial world, she certainly had some gaps in her knowledge.

“Of course, it’s powerful!”
