Jackie raised his eyebrow, speechless.
That brat had to brag every single moment.
Jackie sighed, “Even if you got a Green Phoenix Fruit, it still took you a while to get it. Do you think you can beat me?”
After Jackie said that, Bradley suddenly laughed. The laughter was thick with mockery and incredibly exaggerated. Even Master Forrest who was in front of him could not help but frown.
It was the first time he had ever seen Bradley laughing like that. Before this, Master Forrest would have already found it strange if Bradley spoke more than absolutely he needed to, let alone laugh. Ever since he got to know Jackie, and since Jackie’s results kept on heating Bradley’s, Bradley seemed to have become a completely different person.
Bradley laughed for a long time before he stopped and said, “Jackie! Has anyone ever told you that overconfidence is not a good thing?!”
As he said that, Bradley had an incredibly proud look on his face. At that moment, all he wanted to do was trample all over Jackie. He would only be able to gain the dignity he had lost if he stomped on Jackie with his feet. Bradley actually viewed his pride and dignity as something more important than anything else. Jackie had beaten him over and over again, causing Bradley’s pride to be dealt a blow it never had before.
Bradley took a deep breath before he held his head up high and continued saying, “Don’t think you can do whatever you want just because you have some talent in alchemy. Don’t think you’re unbeatable. What do you think I managed to win the third round with?”
As he said that, Bradley waved the Green Phoenix Fruit in his hand again. Everyone looked at the fruit as it shook around. Including Jackie, everyone wanted to know what method Bradley had used to get the Green Phoenix Fruit.
With him being only at the early stage of the innate level, there was no way he could have gone against a spring solidifying realm beast head-on. The only thing he could do was to use his brains. However, without seeing it for themselves, there was no way they could determine what sort of method Bradley had used.
Jackie frowned, speechless at how crazily Bradley seemed to be targeting him. He had never even regarded Bradley as anyone significant. To him, Bradley was just a pebble by the road that could be kicked aside at any time. Yet, that pebble was acting like an annoying fly, constantly circling around him. Even if Jackie did not want to bother him, he was still annoying enough.
Jackie frowned and said, “The third round isn’t testing alchemic ability, but it’s still related to alchemists. I know you didn’t use your alchemist abilities to get the Green Phoenix Fruit, but you can’t assume I won’t get it because of that.”
Jackie had not bothered to say anything, but Elder Maurice and Mr. Zayne standing behind him were already incredibly tense after Bradley‘s words. He did not want Elder Maurice to continue being fixated on this. Jackie might not have bothered if it was anyone else, but Elder Maurice was still his superior. He could not just ignore Elder Maurice like that.
Jackie had only one thought in mind at that moment, which was to destroy Bradley’s arrogance and shut him up.
Bradley coldly laughed as he started to look even more crazed as he replied, “You know very well that I didn’t rely on alchemy to win this time. Talent in alchemy will only help you with the first and second rounds.”
