Johann stopped to watch the other man just grab earth and cobbles from the ground and start eating them, and he was admittedly awed by what he was witnessing. So this was the power of a slayer that Gangting had told him about ? In addition to that, Gangting once more demonstrated his inhuman strength when he crushed the last one of the slaver grunts using simply a large cobble as a projectile to crush the man in a single blow. The other even jokingly offered him some as well, and he laughed while giving back an answer "No thanks, I think I will pass".
Johann kept fighting while Gangting engaged the other one of the stronger slavers who seemed to command water, and when he was done dealing with the others he had a moment to catch his breath and watch Gangting fight, attacking with ferocious raw force of the earth, destroying his enemy with the determination and unbending will of stone, pummeling the man with spell after spell until ultimately, the slaver lay dead.
As he stood and watched Gangting finish off his opponent Johann noticed that on the other end of the spot, that now was scattered with the bodies of the fallen and the stench of blood, 2 others approached them and started talking to Gangting and himself. It was a woman and a man, who seemed to be the leaders of this shady operation. He listened carefully as the red haired woman and the slender man kept talking, and similarly he listened to Gangtings replies. He reminded Johann not to kill any of the remaining slaver bosses, which Johann admittedly in his rage and pain had almost forgotten, but he calmed down. Gangting was right, enough lives had been lost already. It was necessary to capture these ones alive to set an example for other criminals.
Johann couldn't help but smirk when the woman told them that the man beside her was the fastest man alive. Johann wondered if she was either lying or simply didn't know better, but he knew for certain that there was at least one other mage here that would work with incredible speeds : He himself. Still, it left him wondering just how fast this mage would be, and maybe he would find a worthy opponent in the man with the swords dressed in military garb. He grinned, shouting over to Gangting "Well then, good sir, I will deal with this one" while pointing at the man "and I'll leave the other to you. Good luck, my friend".
The man, Johann remembered that his name was Carver from the letter that Gangting had shown him, started laughing with a mad tone in his voice. "Ha, you think you can beat ME ? Hahaha, I'm too fast for you, old man. I can move at 150 km per hour". Johann sighed, making no mystery of the disappointment in his voice. There he was thinking he had found someone faster than him, but he was proven wrong. His disappointment changed into a smile. "150 km per hour ? That is rather fast ..." he now got in his sprinting stance again "... but I am sad to inform you that I am more than 10 times as fast as you". Carver, with doubt in his eyes, gave back a "What ? that's ...", but he couldn't finish his sentence.
The air around Johann exploded, propelling him at a speed close to 450 meters per second, and he appeared behind the man. The other barely had any time to react and, in panic, stormed off at high speeds. Johann, who was faster still, exploded forward once more, speeding across him and appearing before the man. This time the other had had no time to dodge any attack as he was moving too fast to change direction, and Johann took aim with his sword. He swung his sword, piercing the man's shoulder. Carver cried out in pain, but Johann disappeared right before his eyes in a storm of wind and dust again. He now flanked around Carver to appear a good 20 meters behind him and once more got down on both legs and his blood drenched left arm, and the compressed air catapulted him forward one last time. He kicked Carver in the back with the full force of his speed and launched the man into a stone wall of a nearby storage hall. Carver created a huge dent in the building, and with that he collapsed into unconsciousness. Catching his breath for a second Johann turned to see how Gangting was doing.
