As Mu Ningxue moved closer, she pointed her finger. The frost scattered on the ground gradually climbed onto Sayed’s legs as if it had come alive.
Sayed was given a scare. He tried to break free, yet his legs were no longer under his control.
“Freeze!” Mu Ningxue’s eyes glittered. The spot her eyes were set on was freezing multiple times faster.
Sayed’s left leg seemed to be protected by something. The frost did not cover it. However, his right leg was obviously covered in ice. It soon looked like a frozen stick.
His eyes were panicking as he dragged his right leg back.
“I won’t lose, there’s no way I’m losing!” screamed Sayed furiously.
Mu Ningxue remained silent. She slowly closed her eyes to gather the ice particles onto Sayed’s body. It was time to teach this arrogant Egyptian a lesson.
Sayed’s blue eyes flickered cunningly when he saw Mu Ningxue focusing on controlling the ice particles. He immediately grinned.
“Detonate!” Sayed mumbled as he delivered the command to the Death Saber Mummy.
The Death Saber Mummy was mostly frozen, yet its brain was still active. When Sayed gave out the command, the Death Saber Mummy’s head suddenly bloated and exploded after reaching its limit!
As the fleshy head exploded, the blood, flesh, and pieces of bones scattered across the place with great force.
Mu Ningxue was caught by surprise. She immediately summoned a wall of ice to cover her back, preventing the bone shards from hitting her.
As her attention was diverted, Sayed’s grin widened!
The reason his left leg was not covered in ice was because it was protected by a faint light. It was able to stop his body from freezing temporarily. Meanwhile, he had allowed his right leg to freeze to trick Mu Ningxue into believing that he no longer posed any threat to her!
The truth was, he still had another Element that he had not used. It was the Shadow Element!
He was trying to move back further, to the spot covered in the shadow…
“Damn it, my leg is stuck to the ground!” Sayed was about to make his move, yet he realized something annoying.
He had taken the act too seriously, and now it prevented him from moving!
However, he was desperate to win the duel. He was representing the Egyptian team! If he lost the duel, he would lose the chance to acquire the challeng stamp too. He would be too ashamed to report back to the team!
“It’s my only option!” Sayed clenched his teeth as he made a difficult decision.
It was his only chance, even if it would cost him a leg. Anything was worth it as long as it could secure him the final victory!
Sayed withheld the pain as he forcibly dragged his right leg out from the ice.
His leg was rigid from the cold. He basically twisted wildly and pulled with great force, snapping off his leg off under the knee!
There was not any pain due to the cold, but Sayed knew it was only temporary. He would soon be overwhelmed by the pain from losing his leg.
The sacrifice was necessary to secure the victory. The woman was surely going to lose as long as he could move!
Sayed merged with the shadow and vanished into thin air, leaving a leg stuck behind in the ice. It was a very eerie sight!
The crowd was stunned. How cunning was this Sayed? He pretended like he had already lost the duel just to get Mu Ningxue to lower her guard. He then detonated the Death Saber Mummy behind Mu Ningxue to distract her, just so he could successfully deliver his surprise attack!
They could not help but admit that this Sayed was truly crazy, willingly sacrificing his leg just to win the duel. Anyone would have thought that Mu Ningxue had already won the duel!
“Watch out!” someone from the crowd screamed, but it was too slow. Sayed’s move had taken everyone by surprise!
A black shadow flowed over to Mu Ningxue’s side. Sayed’s tall figure appeared from it. He looked rather sinister covered in the dark aura.
He was holding a short, dark dagger. It was difficult to notice it without seeing the icy flicker it was reflecting.
It was the Devouring Dagger. Anyone who was stabbed by the dagger would feel their body being eaten by tens of thousands of ants, leaving them in incredible pain.
As a matter of fact, Sayed was hesitant to treat a beautiful woman with such a cruel method, but wasn’t it her fault after forcing him into a pinch like this?
Sayed’s move was completely unpredictable. The speed of his Devouring Dagger was as quick as the bite of a poisonous snake. Even instructor Bai Dongwei did not expect the move!
“You must be proud after costing me a leg, but you’re going to pay a bigger price!” Sayed stabbed the dagger at Mu Ningxue’s shoulder.
Mu Ningxue stood where she was. Sayed was only around a meter away. Most terrifyingly, the Devouring Dagger was inches away from piercing her skin.
Mu Ningxue remained expressionless.
The dagger stabbed at Mu Ningxue fiercely, yet it did not penetrate her skin. Somehow, it felt like the dagger had hit a sturdy crystal.
Sayed’s hand turned numb from the rebound force. His eyes almost popped out from their sockets as he could not believe what he saw.
Mu Ningxue’s body was covered in a layer of icy crystal. It was not an armor, but the same frost that had spread across the Death Saber Mummy and Gray-Cloth Iron Mummy’s bodies. Mu Ningxue actually covered herself in ice as a layer of protection!
Sayed was not surprised by her ability, but her reaction speed!
Even though his plan consisted of a few steps, including losing his right leg, disappearing in the shadow before showing up close to Mu Ningxue to ambush her, his actions were completed almost instantly after he detonated the Death Saber Mummy’s head. As such, he was dumbfounded; he could not believe the woman had actually predicted his move, and had set up her defense beforehand!
However, if she knew he was planning to deal her a surprise attack, why did she only cover herself in ice after he broke off his leg…
“You…you did it on purpose!” yelled Sayed furiously, now on the verge of having a breakdown.
Mu Ningxue ignored his cry. She had no intention of interacting with lowly scum. He was going to enjoy the pain from breaking off his leg…
She turned around and slowly walked off the stage. The Ice Domain lingering in the area was soon withdrawn, including the ice that was covering Sayed’s right leg.
The ice worked like anesthesia, but as the ice melted, the returning pain was going to become true torture!
