Episode 29

(Fury boiling in Austin veins (3)

'How is the fool so powerful now?!'    Feeling the strength in Austin's attack, Jesse exclaimed to himself silently. He sensed vaguely that Austin's vital energy base was higher than even his own.     But Jesse was extremely unwilling to admit to that.     

In the past three years, Austin had always seemed like a fool. He had often been bullied by Jesse and his companions, and his vital energy base could not be detected at all.     

Jesse himself could not remember how many times he had bullied Austin or made fun of him, when he hadn't been in a good mood.     

He also clearly remembered that each time Austin saw him, the fool's face held clear signs of panic. He tried to escape Jesse every time he spotted the latter coming from far away.   

But now, as Jesse stood before Austin, he saw the latter gaze at him almost calmly. But his eyes were cold and sharp, even full of cruelty, one might say.    

 Meanwhile, Matias too stared at Austin, his eyes narrowed to slits.  

   'The fool has changed!' he thought.     'He's not the same as he used to be.' Matias had realized it as soon as Austin appeared before them. He didn't believe Bates's words at the beginning.     

Yet, despite his unwillingness to believe it, he had seen Austin repel Jesse with his force alone just now, thus proving his suspicions.    

 'Austin!' Denali cried out the name in her mind, thrilled.    

 She turned her attention onto him, giving him a wide smile. It was obvious that she was pleased with him.   

Austin nodded at her, the expression on his face not betraying any emotions. Denali had been protecting Evan just now.     

But Austin's feelings toward her were somewhat complicated, and he had no clue why she would help Evan.    

 Watching Austin throw a casual but cold glance at her, Denali grew annoyed. 'Why is he putting on such airs?' she thought bitterly. 'He thinks he's so great that he can look down on people?'    

She looked at him furiously before shifting her eyes.   

  She couldn't figure out what she felt for Austin, but she was truly grateful that he had saved her life that night.     

In addition to that, he was such a mystery to her. She was curious about him, so inadvertently, she paid attention to him.   

Unbeknownst to her, Matias was witness to the expressions that passed over her face. Within moments, his face turned terribly dark and menacing, the fire of jealousy blazing in his heart.     

He had always regarded Denali as his own and had great confidence that someday, he would win her over. Yet, Denali was always rather cold with him. She refused his attempts at courtship and distanced herself from him constantly.     

It pained Matias to the bone.     

If Austin had reacted positively to Denali's kindness, Matias might not have been as jealous.     

But instead, Austin was acting like he didn't care for her at all... which made Matias even more annoyed. Who did Austin think he was?     

"You fool!"   

 Matias snapped at him angrily.   

"Haven't you found a hole for yourself to hide in? What made you come here to face me? We beat you up last time, remember? Yet you didn't die. Today, you won't be that lucky," one of Matias's followers shouted out, standing behind him.    

 "Fool! Have you come to accept your death punishment?" another roared arrogantly.     

"You idiot, if you don't come over and kowtow a hundred times to Matias, you should just go ahead and cut your throat! Our hands would get tarnished if we kill you." The followers were up in arms, bellowing like monsters.    

 The raucous, loud protests rang out jarringly. Each of them was goading Austin to accept the death punishment.     
As for Bates, he didn't take off his resentful eyes from Austin for even a second.   

  "Matias, this fool and Denali were brazen enough to flirt with each other in front of you. He has been condescending toward you. I think we should teach him a nice lesson today," Bates said, trying to ignite Matias's rage.   

The taunting worked. Matias's face grew even darker, heavy with disdain.     

"Such a ragtag group of imbeciles. You really think so highly of yourself, don't you?" Austin burst out.   

  Looking at the group of arrogant men in front of him, Austin was full of contempt. Back then, when he was the number one outer disciples, even the elites among the outer disciples had respected him.

   The highest cultivation base of any the grunt disciple in front of him was only the fourth level of the Energy Gathering Realm. Yet, they were presumptuous enough to behave so haughtily. Austin found it a tad ridiculous.    

 At Austin's words, the group of dozen or so men around Matias grew indignant. They rolled up their sleeves, eager to beat him up at any moment.   

"Don't worry. None of you could escape me," Austin said indifferently, stretching out a finger and waving it at Matias and his followers.     

The provocative gesture stunned the disciples, as if Austin had slapped each of them in public.    

 "How dare he?!" one of them shouted out, clearly offended. The rest seemed to share the sentiment as they cursed him in stifled voices.    

 Meanwhile, Denali looked Austin up and down thoughtfully, her pretty eyes full of interest, as if she was enjoying this.   

  As far as she knew, none of the other grunt disciples ever dared to talk to Matias and his followers this way.     

"Did he hit you, Evan?"   

 Austin asked, pointing at Jesse.   

"Tin, I think we should get out of here. They outnumber us," Evan said slowly, a bit terrified. He was worried that Austin would not be able to fight such a large number of people.   

  "You don't need to worry about me. It's time to even the score today," Austin said, patting Evan on the shoulder in an attempt to assure him.    

 "Well then. Let's start with you," Austin said, looking at Jesse. "Just so you know what happens when you test my temper."    

However, hardly did Austin's words leave his mouth that Jesse bellowed, outraged," You fool, what act are you putting on? You think you're so high and mighty?"   

 Jesse's feet hit the ground as he stepped forward, gravel crackling from the force. Grunting, he rushed at Austin, his five fingers clenched into a fist as they slammed into Austin's chest.   

 Feeling Jesse punch him, Austin just sneered disdainfully. He immediately exercised the power of his vital energy, his body veering as he floated to Jesse's side gently like a gliding leaf.   

He grabbed Jesse's right arm tightly and raised one of his knees to kick at him. At once, Jesse howled wildly like a pig, clearly in pain.
