“What’s gotten into you?” Han Jingru was baffled as he found his disciple’s reaction to be disproportionate. From his perspective, it would be no different from taking a trip to another country.
“Master, in order to get there, we have to pass through the Dark Forest,” Huang Xiaoyong reminded him. It was a hellish place that drove terror into the hearts of Xenos’ natives at the mere mention of its name; a place where only Pinnacle Masters would dare tread.
“Yes, I know that. So, what about it?” Han Jingru inquired staidly.
Huang Xiaoyong swallowed before he asked cautiously, “Master, could it be that you have attained the Pinnacle Stage?”
Huang Xiaoyong tried to assess his master’s abilities, but his speculations could not be corroborated without compelling evidence. Moreover, he highly doubted that Han Jingru was a Pinnacle Master as it was unlikely that he could have reached this highest level of attainment at his relatively tender age.
But when he saw how fearless his master seemed about going to the Dark Forest, he wondered if his master’s confidence was a reflection of his capability.
