Yang Xing figure was getting more bloody with every exchange he had with Marcus. His joints were in pain, through the whole fight he was able to reduce the damage he received by defending from all of those tricky angles attacks.
But Marcus was visibly getting tired. There were few shallow cuts on his body, and if Yang Xing can hold on for a bit more he will have a chance to win!
He will persist and continue with his attack!
But Marcus had a different idea. He knew that he is at his limit. It was time to finish this fight. He will go up a notch and start to use his energy.
Yang Xing was looking at Marcus, seeing as he is taking a few steps back he suspected that he is at his limit. This is his chance!
He charged at Marcus; suddenly blue light filled his vision, it was extending towards him like branches of a tree.
Everyone watching was dumbfounded. The fight was going for a while, and it looked like Yang Xing will gain an advantage soon. But out of nowhere Marcus shot a bolt of lightning and knocked Yang Xing out.
Marcus was completely unfazed by this. Looking around to find the girl that fought before him, he realized she was long gone. Not overthinking about it, he left the training grounds.
He felt that his body was tired from the fight. It was similar to what he felt the last time. And soon he confirmed his prediction, and again his strength increased by twice the usual.
Muscle strength: 24.6
The increase was again 0.4. Now Marcus needs to find how to get that consistently. Fighting is a good way but it takes a lot of time and not always will he have a good opponent. Now he has another thing on his already long to do list.
In the morning, Marcus entered the Hunters Guild Training Program classroom. The girl from yesterday wasn't there, but Deon was.
"What a surprise, you finally showed up."
"I did, and I want to ask you a few things."
"Sure thing, I will answer them to the best of my ability. But before that let me warn you, some people from genius class are looking for you."
"Genius class? I don't know… oh, wait there was that guy. Thank you for telling me."
"Who is it?"
"It's nothing; I only had a spar with one guy on my first day here."
"If you say so… But be careful of people from Genius Class, they can be annoying."
"Right, I have a few questions."
"First of all, I need a good way to get money."
"Well that's easy, go to the Hunters Guild, and they will give you some. How much I don't know, but as long it's not a huge amount they will definitely give it to you."
"Yes, we are their investment in the future, a bit of money doesn't mean anything to them when compared to us."
"Ok, I also need some cultivation resources, to be exact. I need items filled with lighting energy, the more, the better."
"Just tell Teacher Jiang, he will request them from Hunters Guild, all of the cultivation resources that are supplied to us come from them. You would know all of this if you wouldn't skip classes for a WEEK. What were you even doing? And so you know for the future if you go into secluded cultivation you need to inform the teacher beforehand."
"I… will keep that in mind."
"When Teacher Jiang will come here he will definitely call you out. If you tell him you were cultivating in seclusion he won't go after you, but in the future don't skip his classes, there was one guy that didn't show up for a month, then Teacher Jiang took him to talk, and he never showed up again."
"Turns out he had a huge breakthrough, but before he could tell that to Teacher Jiang, he was beaten up as to "properly educate him" then he graduated. Teacher Jiang won't listen to excuses if you go too far, he will just beat you up."
It looks like he has a good teacher, It didn't seem so on the first day.
And as Deon predicted he was called out, and after ten minutes of trying to calm down Teacher Jiang he was finally able to request him for the cultivation resources.
Yang Xing was a mess. After yesterday's fight, all of the joints in his body were in pain. But compared to what was before him, it was nothing.
Looking at the perfect face of Xiao Mei, the Leader of the Genius Class, Yang Xing wanted to cry out in fear. She was a stage nine expert, and soon she will be able to graduate, but before that happens, she is the ruler here.
His yesterday's failure made his already bad situation, worse. He didn't expect Marcus to be holding back to the very end, and now he will pay the price for it.
"Yang Xing… you and your brother shamed our Genius Class, not to mention that there are only three weeks left before the competition. And after the last year failure, we need to win. And yet you still go around making the genius class look weak. You and your brother will face punishment, but before that, we have more pressing things to take care of."
"Since you already picked a fight with Marcus, we can't really do anything if we don't want any more bad reputation. He is strong; we need to know exactly how strong, Wang Bai follow him. Find everything you can."
"We also need to revise our plans for the competition, for starters assume that Marcus has a strength of stage eight. If he is stronger then that… I will personally take care of him.
And who can that be?!
