Chapter 435: Malicious Flower, Malicious Fruit
Without warning, the Knight of Judgment attacked. He pressed forward as he swung his blade.
Thales instinctively raised his sword to parry the attack, fending off the opponent's saber. The sound of metal clashing against metal rose.
The angle of Zakriel's slash was incredibly difficult to deal with and was exceptionally vicious. Thales had great difficulty handling the strike, and felt his hand slip.
Fortunately for him, the silver longsword he had taken from Ricky made a great contribution. Because of its outstanding grip and balance, the weapon did not leave Thales' hand right after the first strike...
...but Zakriel did not give the prince a chance to relax. He immediately let go of the saber and leaned forward. He pressed his fingers together and straightened his palm. Then, he thrust his palm at Thales' throat.
Thales moved backwards and tried to force his opponent back with his sword, but he soon realized that he was wrong.
