Vincent didn't respond.Bookmark here

"So the game that I have in mi-" Bookmark here

The cat masked attacker couldn't finish his sentence. Even though, this time he didn't get defeated right away by Vincent, the only thing that kept him standing was the adrenaline numbing his pain. But now that pain was coming back.Bookmark here
