Only silence filled the scene.
Everyone was dumbfounded. Their eyes widened in disbelief.
Nobody expected a great martial artist like Augustus to crash into the water with one strike.
He was a grandmaster, for God’s sake! His presence was like a divine being to ordinary martial
A flick of a finger could take a life, and a simple attack could defeat a divine–level martial artist!
Under normal circumstances, a top–tier skilled martial artist like him should be invincible. He could crush everything effortlessly.
What the hell was going on, then? The revered Augustus was defeated on their first encounter. How the hell was that possible?
After a brief silence, the area around Shinefield Lake erupted into a frenzy.
“Oh my God! Am I seeing things? Augustus Kline was sent into the water?”
“No! That’s not possible! A grandmaster is like God. How could an ordinary person compare?”
“A grandmaster can only be defeated by another grandmaster. Could that man actually be a grandmaster already?”
“A young grandmaster! He’s actually a young grandmaster!”
“We have a monster in the Balerno martial arts alliance!”
The excitement at the scene reached its peak as the crowd looked at Dustin standing on the
surface of the lake. All of them were dumbstruck.
“H–How is that possible? H–He. He’s a grandmaster?”
It was as if Terry was hit by lightning as the color drained from his face.
He had thought Dustin was only slightly stronger than him. He didn’t expect him to turn out to be
a grandmaster already. If Dustin wanted to kill him, it would be like killing an ant.
The blow left him in despair. It wasn’t only him. The rest of the Doyle family members looked astonished and scared.
“Why? Why is he so strong?”
Brittany shook her head continuously in disbelief. She couldn’t accept that that fanboy was a formidable fighter.
“We’re doomed… We offended a young grandmaster. We’re in big trouble!”
Letitia was terrified. She broke out in a cold sweat!
“How could this be? Why the hell is he a grandmaster?”
Edith was shocked and jealous. She had trained for many years but was unable to make a

like him was essentially asking for death
“Arrogant brat! You must die today! Not even the emperor can save you!”
Though Augustus was slightly taken aback, he soon erupted in fury. He shot across the air as he launched a palm strike.
In an instant, the lake divided in half, and a surging wave emerged
A massive pillar of water suddenly shot up into the sky, resembling a giant python. It twisted around twice before crashing down violently on Dustin.
As it passed, a wild wind raged and caused aquatic life to jump out. Even massive trees toppled.
The power shown was utterly terrifying.
“Now that you’ve angered Augustus, let’s see if you can survive this!”
Upon seeing this, the disciples of the Jade Maiden Sisterhood gloated openly.
“Hmph! Challenging a grandmaster is like bringing a knife to a gunfight. That guy is digging his own grave!”
The members of the Doyle family sneered. It was as if they were looking at a corpse.
“A grandmaster should never be insulted. This young man is probably going to meet his end here.” Conrad sighed as he shook his head, feeling regretful.
“This guy has committed endless crimes. He deserves to die!”
The Hill family applauded and cheered. They felt vindicated.
Almost everyone believed that Dustin was sure to be a dead man.
Just as the python–like column of water was about to come crashing down on Dustin, he suddenly
With a quick tap of his toes, he launched himself forward. He turned into a white streak of light as he broke through the “python” and continued toward Augustus.
“Huh?” Augustus‘ expression shifted dramatically.
He unleashed a series of palm strikes, creating numerous water pillars as he tried to stop Dustin. However, the light was unstoppable as it pierced through all the pillars.
Eventually, the light arced through the air. Then, it collided with a tremendous force against Augustus‘ protective true energy barrier.
With a resounding bang, Augustus‘ protective barrier exploded, dissolving into waves of light.
His body was thrown upwards like a kite disconnected from its string. Then, he fell into the lake.
Augustus disappeared from view.
A deathly silence engulfed the scene. Only the sound of water bubbling on the surface of the lake could be heard.
