Chapter 29: Competition

The next day, after the class, Teacher Jiang asked Marus to stay behind.

"Yesterday, I requested for the resources you wanted to the Hunter Guild. And they got here this morning. New requests are usually added to the next weekly delivery. They must have a lot of expectations from you. Soon there is a school competition, the rewards are good, so everyone is joining, if you decide to do so, let me know before the end of next week."

"There is no need for that, I will join."

"Great, I have to go, but you can ask Deon for more detail. And here are your resources."

Puting the new storage ring on his hand, Marcus looked for Deon.


"What is going on?"

"Can you explain me the competition?"

"Competition? So you are taking part? That's good, with you we can crush the Genius Class again."


"Yes, Last year we won with them, and since then they came together under the leadership of…someone I can't remember, wired. Either way, they want to get back their 'honor' or something. No one here cares about that, so we didn't pay much attention to it, but with you, it can be fun watching them getting crushed. Just imagine, 'A complete newbie crushing the genius class!'. Hilarious!"

"Sure… I just want the rewards. So if you can explain me the rules."

"The competition will last three days. The first day is the eliminations, there are twenty spots, at first they will be given to random people, and you can take it away from them by fighting and winning. People that will have the spots at the end of the day go to the next round."

"Second round starts the next day. It will be a standard tournament, you get a random opponent and if you win you go to the next round. The finals will be the next day and after that the rest of the matches to determine other rankings."

"There are some rules, but the most important one is to not kill or cripple your opponent. As long as you follow that, you will be fine."

"Is that it? No other rules or restrictions worth mentioning?"


"Ok, thanks. Do you know what the prizes are? How much are they worth?"

"This year the first place will get hundred spirit stones and a rank nine weapon. Second place gets fifty spirit stones and the Hundred Eyes Flower. Third place gets twenty-five spirit stones. Places four to ten get ten spirit stones. The rest gets nothing."

"Spirit Stones? What are those?"

"... are you serious? Please don't tell me you never heard of them."

"Never heard of them."

"Sigh… Spirit stones are the most basic resource used to speed up our cultivation. They are crystals filled with Qi, because of this we can absorb it much faster, and since its very clean we don't have to refine it as much as the Qi in the atmosphere."

"Mhmm... I guess they can be helpful."

"Helpful? They… you know I can't be bothered to say more. The teacher is here let's continue during lunch."

Marcus realized that the teacher was looking at them, he smiled and stopped talking. Closing his eyes, he went to the library and searched for more information on spirit stones.

And as Marcus predicted, he can use them to speed up his cultivation of Divine Body Modeling. It will resolve the problem of his cultivation getting slower, and with the resources from the Hunters Guild, his energy will have a huge boost.

The price for the second place is Hundred Eyes Flower, the most basic usage of it is to directly consume it. By this, the vision will have a tremendous improvement. If forged into a pill not only your vision will improve but also allow you to see in darkness.

But these are the most basic uses of the Hundred Eyes Flower. Marcus was able to find a book that mentions that with the Hundred Eyes Flower, it is possible to forge a new pair of eyes!

These eyes will allow the person that has them to see everything in front them, but also what's behind them. They can see the whole electromagnetic spectrum, so it's impossible to hide from them. But that's still not all. Energy, they can see it.

Everything that has some energy will involuntarily release some. This means that by walking around, he will be able to find treasures!

The best thing about those eyes is that Marcus can get them! In the shop, in the body modification section, he can exchange for them with Hundred Eyes Flower and one hundred energy.

One hundred energy is almost half of his current energy, about hundred days of work. But it is worth it.

After classes, Marcus went back to his room. Opening the storage ring with resources, he was stunned. It was full. Up to the brim. Hundreds of items with lightning attribute energy.

Es. How do I absorb the energy from them?

"The fruits and pills can be directly eaten, then focus in the energy inside and absorb them, as for other items, there are special techniques to do it effectively, you can find them in the shop."

Let's start with fruits then. Taking one out, Marcus ate it in a few bites. After a few seconds he felt the energy being released into his body, and after focusing, he was able to control it. It wasn't as pure as the energy from the Void Dimension, but with no difficulty, he was able to separate the impurities and exhale them out of his body.

Looking at the results Marcus was satisfied.

Name: Marcus


Health: Good

Aptitude: MAX

Muscle strength: 24.6

Flexibility: 28.2

Speed: 23.6

Energy: 252.6

The increase was 1.5, he gained more energy with half the time the usual method uses. It also doesn't require as much focus so he can increase his energy without a break. And with hundreds of items in the storage ring, he will quickly increase his energy.

With a smile on his face, Marcus took another fruit from the storage ring.
