Strongest Mage with the Lust system - Chapter 423
423 You’ll have to ask her yourself
“You filthy bastard! How dare you!” Ashroth shouted and punched toward Max.
His peak four-star demon energy surged out of him, transforming into a palm and flew Max like a shooting star.
When he met Amara a while ago, he had sensed a faint, masculine scent on her body and her expression wasn’t also quite right.
This made him suspicious, but he wasn’t concerned about it. In fact, he was happy that his sister had found someone to her liking and just wasting the prime of her life.
However, as he walked out of the villa, he suddenly thought that the scent seemed a little familiar. After thinking about it for a moment, he realised who the scent belonged to. It was that human’s scent.
This realisation made him angry. He wouldn’t mind if the person Amara liked was a demon, but a human was out of the question.
Therefore, he went to Amara’s servant quarters to find and kill Max, but didn’t find him there.
He then realised that Max was most probably with Amara, but he knew she would protect him if he went over to kill him there.
To his surprise, just then, he saw Amara rush out of her villa.
Wasting no time, he immediately went to her room and, just as he expected, he found this filthy human here.
“Crap!” Seeing the demonic palm slapping toward him, Max’s face paled.
He hurriedly took out multiple peak grade-three defensive talismans and crushed them.
The talismans’ energy formed multiple defensive halos around him.
Max, however, didn’t relax. He knew Ashroth was stronger than a mid-stage four-star demon and these talismans wouldn’t be able to defend against the palm attack, even though Ashroth hadn’t used his full power. Therefore, he hurriedly circulated his enhanced mana into his legs.
Just as he expected, the defensive barriers last only for a fraction of the second before shattering like glass when the palm collided against them.
However, this slight pause allowed Max to jump to the side, dodging the palm.
“Hm?” Ashroth raised his brows in surprise when he saw Max take out the talismans.
“So it was you who killed elder Seriath’s and Keritch’s sons.” He asked, his blood-red eyes flashing.
“Yeah. I did that.” Max nodded, wiping the sweat from his forehead.
Although he dodged the palm, its aura made his heart palpitate. He knew he wouldn’t be able to live if Ashroth was really bent on killing him.
“Why did you kill them?” Ashroth asked.
Remembering his conversation with Amara, Max said, “It was lady Amara’s order.”
“Hm.” Ashroth nodded. He knew they were ordered to monitor Amara at all times. Having her freedom restricted, she obviously wanted to get rid of them.
‘Since she wasn’t strong enough to kill the two, she found this human to take them by surprise and kill them.’ He thought. Then he slowly walked toward Max and asked,ραпdα `nᴏνɐ| сom
“Where did you find these mana talismans? I believe no one makes them anymore on the demon continent.”
Max took a deep breath and said, “I found them in the legacy grounds where lady Amara awakened her bloodline.”
“Hm?” Ashroth raised his brows and released his aura. “Do you think I’m a fool?”
Max immediately felt a powerful pressure pressing him down. Max became puzzled at his reaction however, he didn’t mind it much because he thought resisting his aura wouldn’t be too difficult since he had experienced even king and monarch level mages’ aura.
However, in the next second, he found out how delusional he was because even after trying with all his might, he couldn’t stand still and fell on his knees with a thud.
‘This… how could it be?’ He thought, his eyes widening in shock. Previously, he had withstood Arya’s and the white-haired woman’s aura, but he couldn’t do the same right now.
Just then, system’s voice sounded in his ears. [Hehe, are you thinking why aren’t you able to withstand a mere peak four-star demon’s aura when you managed to withstand that little Elf’s aura, right?]
[Let me tell you something. You withstood her aura because she only used a bit of her mental pressure and didn’t use the force of her aura. If she had done so, your body would have been crushed to pieces.]
When Max heard this, he became depressed. How laughable? He had thought that he was something special to withstand their aura pressure when in reality; they were only testing him with a little bit of their mental power.
‘Well, at least my mental resistance is quite good.’ He thought, smiling bitterly in his heart.
Just when he felt he wouldn’t be able to endure the pressure anymore, Ashroth retracted his aura, saying.
“Amara had already told me that the legacy ground she entered belonged to a monarch level person or maybe even stronger. Why would such a powerful entity have these trifling grade-three talismans?”
Hearing this, Max understood why he didn’t believe him.
He slowly stood up and answered with a sincere expression on his face, “You are right. These talismans weren’t that senior’s belongings. I found them in a spatial ring that belonged to a human skeleton.”
“Hm. It makes sense.” Ashroth nodded. He then asked, staring into his eyes and releasing his aura to pressure him, “Did you also participate in the legacy trials?”
“No.” Max shook his head, “The only reason I could enter the legacy ground was because I was with lady Amara when she was teleported over there but wasn’t allowed entry to the trial grounds, so I waited outside.”
“Hm.” Ashroth nodded before indifferently adding, “You can die now.”
Saying this, he lifted his hand, prepared to slap Max to death.
Max’s mind whirled at lightning speed and he hurriedly said, “You can’t kill me. If I die, lady Amara will also die.”
Ashroth stopped his hand and released his aura instead and forced Max to his knees once again before coldly asking, “What do you mean?”
Max spat out a mouthful of blood this time because Ashroth had used the full force of his aura in anger.
Wiping the blood from the corners of his lips, Max said, “I’m afraid you won’t believe me if I tell you the reason. So, it would be best if you ask lady Amara yourself.”
