When the one in charge of the cage finished talking, the crowd burst with excitement.
The one who could tame it could take it away with him! That was incredibly tempting for all the cultivators in the arena! Owning such a beast would provide a cultivator with terrifying battle ability.
But the problem was with taming the beast, being unsuccessful would likely result in death.
Most of the people in the crowd would never want to fight against such a powerful ferocious beast. Besides, even cultivators at the fifth Ling Qi layer probably wouldn’t be advised to fight against it. It would be extremely hard for them to stay alive, let alone tame the beast.
Then, the one in charge of the cage started talking again: “Of course, to enter the cage you should be at least at the fifth Ling Qi layer to fight against it. If you have broken through to inferior Ling Qi layers, you can also fight against it, but it would not be recommended. If you can’t tame it, then just kill it. We will also give you a hundred purity stones of medium quality.”
Many people were tempted to give it a try.
The group of people with whom Lin Qian had come with were all students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue. At that moment, everybody was staring at Lin Qian.
“Mu Fan, don’t you want to capture that daemonic fire lion?” said one student to another called Mu Fan. He was captivated by the lion in the cage.
He had broken through to the fifth Ling Qi layer, the same level as that ferocious beast.
“Mu Fan, bro, if you want to give it a try, I can talk to the guy running things, then even if you lose it won’t be a big deal, just don’t get injured.” said another student.
Mu Fan was growing more and more tempted.
If any of them had to go into the cage then Mu Fan was probably the best choice.
If he won and managed to tame the beast while fighting it, he could take the beast away as his own, but he probably would have to give up on the twenty purity stones of medium quality. They probably would not give the purity stones and also let you leave with the beast, it would be too great of a prize. Even if he lost, it wasn’t a problem either as long as he didn’t get injured. Who could refuse such a tempting offer?
Suddenly, Mu Fan looked relaxed and said: “Alright, I will give it a try.”
Mu Fan looked delighted. From what he had understood, the other student was actually proposing to give the lion to him as a present. That was exactly what it was in Mu Fan’s head.
“Mu Fan, brother, you’re very brave.” said the other student.
Mu Fan then jumped through the air and landed in front of the cage. His eyes were filled with greed when looking at the beast.
“What a nice agility technique, Mu Fan, bro! Show them how powerful we students at the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue are!” shouted another of Mu Fan’s fellow students so that everybody could hear.
“Oh, so they’re students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue, no wonder they are so strong.”
“The students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue are so amazing. They will probably become the most important people within the country over time.”
Various comments spread throughout the crowd. The students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue had a proud and arrogant expression on their face when they overheard all of the comments.
Since the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue had been created, some other cultivation academies and institutes had already started suffering from its power. The students of the Holy Courtyard were always trying to make their institute gain in prestige and reputation. They wanted it to become the first cultivation institute in the country. In the future, the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue would probably become much more influential than the Celestial Academy and would also become much stronger than all the sects of the country.
The students from the Holy Courtyard felt extremely proud.
Lin Qian’s beautiful face expressed a lofty arrogance. It was very clear to her that in the future, she would go back home wearing luxurious clothes and show to everyone how prestigious she had become after she left Yangzhou City.
Mu Fan was walking towards the door of the cage and was about to get in when suddenly, a silhouette appeared in front of him.
The students of the Holy Courtyard suddenly all had angry looks on their faces, especially the young boy who had been trying to convince Mu Fan to go and fight against the lion. He looked particularly angry.
That person only needed to take one more step to enter the cage. When Mu Fan saw the scene, he could help but shout: “STOP!”
The silhouette in front of him stopped. He was wearing a silver mask which gave everyone the sensation of coldness.
That person was of course, Lin Feng.
“What’s wrong?” said Lin Feng aggressively. His voice sounded strange when he was wearing the silver mask.
“Oh, I see. Your Highness, haven’t you seen that I was the first one to come?” said Mu Fan sarcastically. He was convinced that there had been nobody in front of him when he had moved towards the cage. Lin Feng had come from behind him and passed by to the cage.
“Did you say to the person running things that you wanted to enter into the cage?” asked Lin Feng coldly.
Mu Fan had an ugly expression on his face. He had, not actually announced to anyone other than his fellow students that he wanted to battle against the lion.
When Lin Feng saw that Mu Fan wasn’t replying at all, he continued: “Since you didn’t announce that you would be the person to fight against the lion, the rule is: the first one to go inside the cage is the one who gets to battle.”
A light flashed through Mu Fan’s eyes and he said: “My fellow students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue really want me to fight against that lion. Give me that battle otherwise I’ll lose face in front of them.”
When saying that, Mu Fan made sure to clearly and loudly state the words “Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue”. He had said these words loudly and slowly to make sure that Lin Feng would hear him and understand his meaning.
Lin Feng smiled. The Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue?
“I’m sorry, I’ve never heard of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue and besides, I don’t know you so I have no reason to care about your face.” said Lin Feng. At that moment, many people were stupefied. How strange! He had never heard of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue!
All the students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue stood up and furiously looked at Lin Feng. That guy was crazy!
“Don’t do something that you will regret.” said Mu Fan while evilly staring at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng laughed and said: “Oh really, I really don’t know what you mean?”
Then, Lin Feng turned around and was about to enter the cage.
“Wait, wait!” Said someone while quickly interrupting Lin Feng’s movement. Lin Feng stopped, turned around and saw it was another student of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue. It was precisely the one who had convinced Mu Fan to go fight against the lion.
“What do you want now?” said Lin Feng while smiling coldly.
All those people were students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue, they were Mu Fan’s fellow students. Lin Qian was also sitting amongst them.
“Let my brother Mu Fan fight this lion.” said the young man coldly and indifferently yet sounding strict.
He was wearing a set of magnificent and expensive clothes. It was clear to see that he was a noble from a powerful family at a single glance.
“Since when do you decide who can fight or cannot in the cage of the Prisoner Arena?” asked Lin Feng coldly.
“I didn’t decide about that. You can ask the one in charge of the arena who arrived first.” said the young man indifferently. He sounded quite confident. Everybody turned around and looked at the man who had brought the lion into the cage.
The man pointed at Mu Fan and said indifferently: “He was the first one to arrive at the cage. He will fight this beast.”
When he heard these words, a huge smile appeared on the face of the young man who had just helped Mu Fan.
When Lin Feng saw the arrogant expression on Mu Fan’s face as well as on the faces of the other students of the Holy Courtyard of Xue Yue, he said: “You’re the one who decides here, good. I will not return to this place to be scammed into paying for this. I also advise to everybody else never return to this place again, stupidly spending purity stones to watch pathetic losers fighting rigged fights.”
When the young man heard Lin Feng, he frowned and said: “What do you mean?”
