Buck Tooth had long lost his patience before this exchange. When he noticed that Francis was not giving way, he shouted, “Get lost right now, Francis! You already have the soul crystal, but you’re still taking up the spot. Can’t you see that there are still two people waiting behind you?”
To this, Francis bashfully turned and saluted Buck Tooth before he ran over to a vacant spot nearby and found a clean mat. He sat and started to toy with the soul crystal in his hand happily.
Seeing the soul crystal in Francis’ hand up close made everyone envious, and it showed in the expressions they had. Despite their ridicule and haughty words, it was impossible for them to not be enticed by such a large soul crystal in front of them.
They even struggled to keep their behavior
in check. After all, none of the five individuals had the ability to get that soul crystal.
Feeling their gazes, Francis’ lips curled into a smirk as a prideful expression was etched onto his face. “What’s wrong? Do you want it? Too bad, because I’m not giving this to any of you!”
Everyone wanted nothing more than to run up to Francis and give him a smack.
Buck Tooth paid no attention to their quarreling. Francis’ victory might have even excited him as he furrowed his eyebrows and started to look at the innumerable dancing soul crystals in the cave.
The soul crystals might be moving and dancing around quickly, but they were like headless flies. As long as one could find a target, they could use their power to lock onto them.
Any person could break the outer shell and
obtain the soul crystal, provided they have the capability of doing so.
Buck Tooth let out a sharp cry as his hands moved. Soon after, runes appeared in front of him as they turned into a black ax, one that gave everyone the goosebumps.
Very quickly, Buck Tooth headed right at the soul crystal he had locked into.
“Shatter!” Buck Tooth cried out in anger. The ax fell down immediately upon the soul crystal.
Jackie raised his eyebrow and shook his head in exasperation. The ax should be Buck Tooth’s strongest attack, but he overestimated himself. Even though the attack was strong, the soul crystal he chose was not small.
It was just a little bit smaller than the soul crystal Francis had gotten earlier. The difficulty of shattering it would probably be not much different from the soul crystal Francis got earlier.
Jackie sighed helplessly at the thought.
Buck Tooth was not as strong as Francis. To get that soul crystal, Francis even used up a lot of his strength and only barely secured it.
Jackie raised an eyebrow as he observed Buck Tooth’s expression. After the attack, Buck Tooth seemed a bit disappointed, yet the fire in his eyes remained as he showed no signs of slowing down. It was obvious that Buck Tooth had the same plan as Francis.
Both of them planned on stubbornly using all their might to attack the outer shell of the soul crystal. It looked like he would need to waste quite a lot of time again.
“Shatter! Shatter quickly!” Buck Tooth shouted out as he attacked, his muscles bulging as he did.
Buck Tooth seemed tempted to just rush over and bite the soul crystal out with his teeth, much to Jackie’s chagrin. He could not help but take a step back as he wondered how long it would take for Buck Tooth to give up.
He did not feel like Buck Tooth would be able to get the soul crystal like Francis did. After all, they were not on the same level. Buck Tooth was not as strong as Francis, and the soul crystal should not be weaker than the one earlier, too.
