Lin Feng followed the boy, and they walked for a short distance. Lin Feng saw all sorts of beautiful pavilion and simple buildings. Two different styles coexisted in the Ancient Human Clan.
They walked for another ten minutes. The buildings weren’t numerous, but the landscapes were beautiful. There was a bluestone kwoon, and many disciples of the Ancient Human Clan were cultivating in it.
Lin Feng followed the boy across the kwoon. All the disciples watched Lin Feng, either curiously, strangely, or with admiration. They all knew he had to be an extraordinary genius to follow the young boy.
They remembered the leader had announced two incredible young geniuses would join the exam a few days before, so some disciples started whispering, wondering if he was one of the two young geniuses.
Lin Feng had already left the kwoon by then. They arrived in front of a majestic palace, framed by gigantic red pillars.
The boy brought Lin Feng there and said indifferently, “My father is inside. Go and see him.” The boy then turned around and left. Lin Feng watched him disappear. He was getting more and more curious about that little boy. He was only ten years old, yet he seemed so terrifying and dangerous.
Even though he only had the strength of the third Great Supreme God layer, he seemed as strong and dangerous as a cultivator of the fifth!
Lin Feng looked at the great palace for a long time and started up the flight of stairs. When he arrived in front of the door, he didn’t knock. He heard a voice which sounded like it came from heaven and hell, “Come in, no need to knock.”
Lin Feng instantly felt the pressure again. He was still impressed, because he now knew how difficult it was to break through to the Godly Ancestor layer.
Lin Feng opened the door and entered the room. He closed the door behind him and turned around. Fu Hao was sitting on a throne in the middle of the room, watching him plainly.
Lin Feng walked over to Fu Hao and bowed hand over fist. He said, “I’m done with everything I had to do, Master.”
“You solved your problems and decided to cause me trouble?” Fu Hao asked calmly. He didn’t seem angry, but Lin Feng knew he was.
“Master, it was because of the stone plate at the entrance of the clan, on which words were written using a sword. I couldn’t help but perform a sword dance. It was like I had no will to stop myself,” Lin Feng admitted wryly. He didn’t know how to explain it.
Fu Hao’s glanced away. He seemed interested and asked, “You understood what was written?”
“Half of it. If you gave me a few hours, I would understand everything,” Lin Feng said modestly, because actually, he had already understood everything.
Fu Hao smiled strangely. What was he thinking? Lin Feng remained silent.
“Anyway, no need to waste time. You need to solve that issue yourself, I won’t solve it for you. The solution is the exam. Use your strength to show the elders you deserve your position and their respect. If you make them submit, they will naturally forget about all this,” said Fu Hao calmly.
When Lin Feng heard that, he was surprised. “When does the competition start?”
“Eh? Haven’t you fought once already?” asked Fu Hao, laughing at him.
Lin Feng blinked, and he asked curiously, “It has already started??”
“Of course. It started when you arrived in Tian Dong City. Did you really think that kind of competition required someone to organize everything in a kwoon?” Fu Hao smiled.
Lin Feng nodded slowly. He understood that fights and competitions in the World of Battles were probably like that, too.
“You don’t understand the rules yet. There is no fight stage, and no sect or clan organizes the fights; only people from the four great sects and clans know about the World of Battles. Therefore, the exam is a secret exam. When you fought against Jiao Kui, it was the first fight of the exam.
“During the next ten days, the more fights you win, the more chances you have to finish in the top eight. You understand?” Fu Hao asked seriously.
Lin Feng was astonished. He had never heard of such rules, but they were quite simple. No organization, just fights. The more victories, the higher the rank! Simple! Lin Feng thought that was better.
“Master, where is Chu Chun Qiu?” asked Lin Feng. He hadn’t seen him yet.
Fu Hao smiled but didn’t answer that, just saying, “Hurry up and go. When this day is over, you’ll only have nine days left.
“This is the list of the participants. You need to fight against those people to win points. I suggest you start with those at the bottom of the list,” said Fu Hao, tossing Lin Feng a scroll.
Even though Lin Feng had an advantage this time because there was no organization, it wouldn’t be easy, either.
Lin Feng nodded and stopped harassing Fu Hao. He left the room, closed the door, and flew back to the kwoon in the east.
Some people from the list might be there. However, there was someone he really didn’t want to fight against: Zi Jing Xiao!
But Lin Feng understood that Zi Jing Xiao was one of his mental barriers. Two months ago, he wasn’t strong enough to fight him, but now it was time for Lin Feng to overcome that obstacle!
Lin Feng decided to fight against Zi Jing Xiao first. He respected him. Zi Jing Xiao was friendly, but Lin Feng had no reason not to challenge him. On the contrary, he respected him, so he challenged him first.
Zi Jing Xiao was fifteenth in the rankings, Zhao Ming Jun was fourteenth. Apart from them, Lin Feng also knew Sha Chou from the Tian Ji Sect. He was twenty-fourth in the list, the last one.
Jiao Kui, who he had just fought, eighteenth in the list which meant he was about as strong as Zi Jing Xiao. It was time for Lin Feng to challenge Zi Jing Xiao!
Zi Jing Xiao lived in a small courtyard. Nobody caused trouble in the Ancient Human Clan. Only elders could break the silence and disturb people.
Lin Feng ran to Zi Jing Xiao’s courtyard. The sun was already high up in the sky.
Zi Jing Xiao was worried because he had a bad feeling. He was about to challenge someone, but now he had a strange feeling.
“Someone is here?” asked Zi Jing Xiao, turning around. Kun reacted quickly, too.
Kui stood up and ran out of the courtyard. He looked down the small path leading to the courtyard and saw a familiar silhouette.
“Lin Feng?” Kun was stupefied. Zi Jing Xiao’s expression stiffened. He understood what Lin Feng wanted to do, and didn’t know what to think!
