Chapter 180: Fated Fight – Face-Off
As the six quirky individuals were duelling it out in the training room, the two being represented by them were watching over the entire battlefield from above, observing the brawl from their seats in the spectator’s gallery.
Of course, as the battle unfolded, both Junichi and Gabriel expressed shock, albeit to different degrees and by different developments. The former displayed subtle intrigue upon witnessing Karen and the 〚Witch Doctor’s〛 capabilities, while the latter was utterly astounded by the startling coordination that the ［Scarlet Ashes］ displayed.
But then again, it couldn’t be helped that Gabriel was completely dumbfounded. After all, the ponytailed 〚Assassin〛 aside, he could never have dreamed that the green and orange amateurs would display such matured combat senses. To the point where they’d even pulled one over the seasoned ［Alpha Team］, no less.
「Truly remarkable. I tip my hat off to you, Mister Saito.」
Gabriel Gaston spoke, commending the youth for his achievement as he turned towards the dark-haired figure, whose eyes were glued to the match taking place below. Yet, finding no malice in the youth’s lack of reaction, the bulky commander stroked his chin as he once again found himself revelling in amazement.
He was impressed. No, he was more than impressed. Training complete amateurs into fighters that could hold their own against soldiers in a matter of weeks was no easy feat. Therefore, the fact that Junichi was able to do just that was beyond astonishing and even a little scary, especially considering his young age.
Nevertheless, even though some might think that Gabriel should be wary of the ［Scarlet Ashes’s］ dramatic growth, considering that their increased prowess threatened his chances of winning his bet, that was actually not the case at all. In fact, contrary to belief, a smile was plastered upon his stocky face.
