I'm Really Not the Demon God's Lackey Chapter 34: Heart Goes Out

Melissa's mind went blank as she stared at her arm that was pinned onto the table.

H-how can this be!

She looked up and noticed the bookstore owner had an expression that seemed to say that everything was within his expectations.

Lin Jie raised an eyebrow and smiled smugly at Melissa before releasing her hand, as if to say "I'm still quite good at arm wrestling".

But... Melissa had clearly sensed that his muscles and strength had been at the level of an ordinary man! At the age of six, Melissa could already take on ten fully grown men and pound them all to the ground. Now sixteen years old, there was no reason for her to be unable to win an arm wrestling match!

Although she was just an Abnormal-rank, her ability was already at Pandemonium-rank, just that the Truth Union hadn't yet published this year's ranking lists.

But now, she had even lost in an arm wrestling match...

Melissa started to drown in self-doubt.

Could he have used the aether to cheat?

The bookstore owner opposite noticed Melissa's eyes and as if capable of reading her mind, he smiled and said, "I didn't cheat. At such close distance, I would be immediately found out if I did so."

That had indeed been the truth. This was such a narrow space and the two of them were so close together with their hands touching. Any changes in the aether, no matter how minute would have definitely been sensed.

Therefore, this bookstore owner was the genuine article.

But as Melissa came to this realization, she got even more upset and disbelieving.

Lin Jie felt a little bad seeing the dejected young girl with her head lowered and thus consoled her, "Young lady, your strength at such an age is already very impressive. Actually, I found it rather tough. See, weren't we in a deadlock at the start?"

What he said was the truth and Lin Jie looked slightly apologetic.

Yeah right, a deadlock for merely a moment. It makes me want to puke.Melissa clenched her fists tightly. Even if she was just an apprentice knight, Melissa had her own dignity and pride.

In the beginning, she had indeed come with an intent to provoke. However, she was aware that her arrogance had caused her to mistake things but still... she wasn't willing to accept this.

"Best of three, again!" insisted the young girl with a firm and unwavering gaze.

Lin Jie was moved by her imposing attitude. Even though she was still a brat, this fighting spirit was laudable.
