Chapter 21: Should I slap him?

It worked perfectly. Now I have to make sure he will challenge me to a duel. Do I slap him? No, he would say I started the fight. I should be unfazed by his provocation, it will make him angrier. Will it work? We will see. Making sure his voice was calm and tranquil Marcus spoke.

"What do you want?"

The bully's face turned more and more furious. Marcus wasn't sure why would you get so upset over something so small, but seeing a fist coming towards his face was enough of a confirmation that it works.


Shifting his body to the right, Marcus quickly dodged the attack from the bully. The sound of a fist traveling through the air was loud enough to grab peoples attention. It created enough of a commotion for the teacher that was observing the battle to notice what happened.

"You two! If you want to fight come on stage."

Hearing the teachers words the bully held himself back and furiously looked at Marcus. His face was twisted from anger. Seeing that the teacher was aware of them, he didn't dare to attack again.

"Do you dare? To have a spar with me?"


"After you then."

The bully didn't wait and started to walk towards the stage, the commotion began to get bigger and people fighting on the scene soon noticed, and seeing who is coming they stopped their fight and went down the stage. The teacher apparently didn't care about bully's domineering attitude as he only kept watching.

Standing on the stage, Marcus calmed his heart and focused on the enemy in front of him.


With a huge step, the bully accelerated toward Marcus with his arm ready to punch. Taking half a step back, Marcus prepared to dodge, but as the bully was about to hit, he changed his stances and punched out with his left hand.


Not expecting for the bully to be so fast Marcus was barely able to put his guard up and absorb most of the force with his arms, and after taking a few steps back, he stabilized himself.

The bully's face showed confidence. But Marcus didn't care if he is confident or not, he will crush him either way. But that is for later, lets train now.

Taking the stance of the First Eternal Snake Fist, Marcus smiled. Seeing the bully approach him again, he readied himself.

Swosh! Swosh! Swosh!

Punches rained down towards Marcus, and calmly he dodged all of them. His moves were fluid and ever-shifting, making them hard to predict. Marcus was patient, he waited for a chance to hit, the gap must be big since his mastery over the Eternal Snake fist was still very basic.

But his chance showed itself sooner rather than later. Seeing the opening, in a split second Marcus changed his stance and threw a punch.

BAM! Crack!

It was only one hit but, the bully's face was already red from pain. Marcus felt that he broke his ribs upon impact. Waiting for the bully to recover, Marcus observed how his face losses all of his previous confidence and is again replaced with rage. The transition was so smooth from confidence to shock and finally madness. It was so interesting to look at.

Seeing that the bully gathered himself up, Marcus took the First Eternal Snake Fist stance. Soon Marcus was dodging again, but now the bully was hurt, and there were many more openings.


Throwing another punch into an opening, the bully tried to block, but the angle of the attack was too weird. Keeping his balance, the bully Ignored the pain and continued his mad assault.


Punch after punch Marcus was hitting more, as more openings showed themselves. The bully looked bloody and torn down, with none of his proud look left behind. At this point, he stopped attacking and wanted to defend, but no attacks were coming his way.

Marcus was in pain, his joints regularly pulsated with it, this is because of the Eternal Snake Fist. His flexibility didn't reach 25 yet, so there is still pain, but his joints won't get destroyed.

For Marcus the fight was finished so he walked past the bully and went down the stage. The whole training ground was quiet, and only when Marcus left, Everyone went into an uproar.

At the back of the training grounds, two people were looking at frozen bully on the stage.

"Who was that guy?"

"Never seen him before, he must be new. Considering that its middle of the year he must have joined the Hunters Guild Traning Program. I think next batch of newbies is in two months, right?"

"No wonder, Hunters Guild only puts monsters into their training program. What now? The competition is next month. We can't lose this time."

"The decision is not up to us, so don't think about it. We just have to inform the leader."

"Right. We need to get him off the stage, he is already a disgrace to the genius class."


Marcus entered his room. Immideietly he started to practice Divine Body Modeling. Pain in his joints was soon gone, and he could feel his body getting stronger.

Looking at his stats, Marcus was shocked.

Name: Marcus


Health: Good

Aptitude: MAX

Muscle strength: 22.6

Flexibility: 22.0

Speed: 21.6

Energy: 242.2

His Muscle strength, Flexibility, and Speed increased by 0.4! Twice the usual amount. But why? Is it because of the fight just now? Or the damage to his body? He needs to find out! It will be a great help to him if he can double the what he gets from each practice. Considering that his physique is lacking when compared to his energy it will allow him to shorten that gap.

After deciding on how to test it, Marcus continued his practice, but Basic energy gathering (lightning) and Snake Body Transformation gave him the usual results.

Finishing his daily practice, he continued the construction of the Lightning Armor pathway. The progress was slow, and it took him until evening to complete one section of it.

Next morning Marcus was standing in front of his classroom.
