Chapter 184 Meeting the Scarlet Family(4)
The training room resembled that of purgatory with flames everywhere, and if one looked closely, the walls in the room appeared to have melted a little.
Furthermore, since Leo intended on covering the whole room with his magic, he had attacked Eve and the other spectators.
Of course, he was confident that neither Eve or Camille would get hurt by it. As for Edwin, he didn't care if the butler got hurt or not, as he has been wanting to mess with him for a while now.
Once the flames died down a few moments later and Leo could see the others again, he turned to look at Xander, and to his surprise, Xander appeared to be completely unharmed despite eating most of the Dragon's Breath.
However, when he looked closely, he could see a distortion around Xander's body.
"You bastard! How dare you drag me into your attack!" Edwin suddenly shouted in an angry voice.
When Leo turned to look at Edwin, he saw that Edwin's butler uniform was burned a little by the flames, which had inflicted more harm to Edwin's heart than any physical damage could inflict.
He then turned to look at Eve and Camille, and sure enough, neither of them seemed to be injured.
"Hey, you used magic to protect yourself just now, didn't you" Sometime later, Leo said to Xander with a slight smile on his face.
Indeed, Xander had subconsciously used gravity magic to protect himself after feeling the threatening pressure from the Dragon's Breath. Of course, he quickly deactivated it when he noticed it, but it was already too late by then.
"Since you broke the rules, I win by default, right" Leo continued.
"You crazy bastard." Xander muttered in a cold voice.
As much as he hated losing, he hated being a sore loser even more, so he had no choice but to admit defeat.
"You're right. Even though it wasn't my intention and I immediately deactivated it after realizing it, that won't change the fact that I had broken my own rule by using magic." Xander said.
And he continued, "I have a few questions for you before I leave, Leo Magnus."
"How do you feel about my daughter"
"About Lia I think she's one crazy bitch." Leo said, not sugarcoating his words.
"How dare you insult the Young Lady before her father!" Edwin exclaimed.
However, instead of getting angry, Xander actually burst out laughing.
"A crazy bitch, huh I won't deny that she's a little crazy at times."
"Then what do you think about my Scarlet Family"
Leo pondered for a moment before answering, "I don't know much about the Scarlet Family, so I cannot say."
"Then would you like to know more about us"
Leo immediately shook his head, "I'd rather not. I feel like that would be a headache."
"Is that so"
Xander proceeded to reach into his Spatial Ring.
A moment later, he retrieved a red medallion and tossed it at Leo.
"This is your reward for defeating me. As long as you have that medallion, the Scarlet Family will assist you one time. Whether it be money problems or you want us to kill someone for you, we will do it. Of course, this doesn't mean we'll do literally anything. For example, if you want us to destroy one of the other Celestial Families, we won't be able to do that. And I have the right to take back that medallion if you do anything that will harm the Scarlet Family, so keep this in mind."
After saying these words, Xander turned around and began walking towards the exit.
Seeing this, Edwin quickly followed him.
Once he reached the door, Xander stopped for a moment and said, "Right. Regarding your relationship with my daughter. Even if my daughter approves of you, I will not approve of your relationship until your name has some worth to it— enough so that you won't embarrass my Scarlet Family."
And without waiting for a response, Xander left the training room with Edwin following behind.
"Why does everybody think we're in a relationship when that isn't the case" Leo mumbled in a dazed voice.
"That's because you kissed. Duh." Lilith said.
"She did that on her own."
"That's not how people see it." Lilith shrugged.
"That wasn't as bad as I thought it would be." Eve suddenly approached him and spoke.
"Yes, it could've been far worse." Leo had to agree with her.
"In fact, Xander Scarlet didn't really seem that bad."
Camille shook her head, "You have no idea."
"Eh What's wrong with him" Leo asked.
"Lord Xander's nickname is the Blood Emperor. He's killed tens of thousands of people and is one of the most fearsome individuals in this world. The only reason he's acting so tamed is probably because of Lia Scarlet. She's his only weakness, after all."
"Blood Emperor… What an ominous name…" Leo shuddered.
Meanwhile, inside their car, Xander said to Edwin, "Edwin, don't think I can't sense the killing intent in your heart. I forbid you from killing that boy."
"Master… Please forgive my insolence, but I cannot fathom why the Young Lady and the Master are treating him like that. In my eyes, he's not worthy." Edwin sighed.
"Your wits aren't as sharp as they used to be, Edwin. Is this due to your old age Perhaps it's about time you start thinking about retirement." Xander shook his head.
And he continued, "That boy… In just a single month, he's managed to learn up to Tier 7 magic spells and forced me to use magic. Although his status is worthless at the moment, it will eventually soar, as his talents are one-of-a-kind in our era— as long as he survives, that is."
Edwin was speechless. He didn't think Xander held Leo with such high regards. The last time he praised someone to such an extent was when he learned that his daughter, Lia Scarlet, was born with the Scarlet Eyes.
However, when he really thought about it, he began to understand Xander's thoughts.
Xander was someone who greatly valued talent and power, so it would only be natural for him to favor Leo, who had immense talent.-
