In that short period of time, countless ideas on how to escape from the space in the circle appeared in Alex's mind. Sh*t! I have to get out of here! There's no way I'll stand and wait for my doom! Even if he was strong, he could sense how dangerous Lightning Tribulation was.
At first, he planned to break the invisible shield of the space and get out. However, he quickly thought of another way after that plan failed. The second way was to dig a hole and escape before the lightning struck.
Alex then noticed that he was completely trapped even when he tried to dig. He had no way out.
With that, Alex sat down and prepared himself mentally for the lightning. It seems that I can't dodge these lightning strikes this time. Fine! Since I can't escape, I'll just brace through them! I doubt that this half-*ssed Grandmaster can kill me with them. If I died because of that, then I'm not a real Grandmaster.
Alex watched the sky as it grew darker and waited patiently for the lightning to strike. Suddenly, lightning in the shape of a dragon came at him.
In the face of such a sudden blast of lightning, Alex had no other choice but to conjure his energy to hold against it.
