Volume 13 Chapter 9 – Provocation
Absolute beginning region, classroom number 2.
The room was 80km long and 60km wide. This was bigger than a normal city of earth, yet this was only a place for an undying to teach. There were over 1000 seats at the back of the classroom, and beams of lights occasionally flew in to fill the seats.
Luo Feng appeared before the seats too, and picked one casually from the left.
“Look, it’s Luo Feng.”
“He’s Luo Feng from the newest batch of geniuses? Looks pretty handsome and strong.”
“He hasn’t been in the Virtual Universe company that long and he already passed the 7th level. He seems very strong. We are only on the 8th level but we are already domain lord level.” In the corner, two ladies, one with beautiful wings and another with eyes filled with enticement, discussed with hushed voices. They weren’t shy at all, and looked passionately at Luo Feng.
The other members in other places were all discussing too.
“That’s Luo Feng?”
“Right, it’s him.”
“That punk is brutal. Back when I was at universe level, the highest I got was only the 7th level. And that was over 3,000 years after joining the Virtual Universe company.”
“According to his improvement speed, he has no chance of entering the primal region this qualification battle. But by the next one…maybe there’s hope. As long as he has a few thousand years, he definitely has a guarantee of making it into the primal region.”
Two sector lords sitting in the corner were discussing.
Discussions were rampant!
It seemed the moment Luo Feng sat down, the entire classroom number 2 with close to 100 students all began to discuss him. Luo Feng became the center of attention. To be able to in such a short time, pass the 7th level, even before the 1st qualification battle,, only absolute geniuses were capable of such things!
Luo Feng sat silently there, his ears moving slightly.
He clearly heard all the discussions.
“I’ve become a zoo animal.” Luo Feng felt helpless within.
“How do you do Luo Feng.” A boorish voice resounded.
Luo Feng turned to see a bent body with a forehead with 6 protrusions, and his skin was covered in black fur. This man sat a few meters away from himself. While looking at Luo Feng and smiling, he said “I’m Suo Dragon, domain lord level. Today, I’ve heard many discussing about you…however, you are indeed impressive.”
“Thanks.” Luo Feng replied.
Within however he was laughing. According to the separation, the absolute beginning region had 1,000 sector lords, 100 domain lords, 30 universe levels. He was one of the new 8, making the entire number of the region go up to 1138.
However after the qualification battle, the numbers would return back to 1130.
Just from the looks of it, the number of sector lords were the highest, and most of the people in this classroom 2 were sector lords too. Very few of them were domain lords and the universe level numbers were very pitiful. Including Luo Feng, there were only four of them. This alone had made him shocked, because there were usually only two universe levels attending the classes.
“Today, there are two more universe level members here.” Luo Feng thought.
“Absolute beginning members have a very low chance of making it into the primal region!” Suo Dragon said softly, “My friend and I were discussing, saying that you will have hopes of making it in a few hundred years! Our absolute beginning region…very rarely will one ever make it. Everytime such a thing happens, it makes us all excited.”
“Even if you are only one step ahead of everyone, this will eventually lead to you being more steps ahead of everyone.”
“The earlier one gets into the primal region, the faster the improvement.” Suo Dragon seemed to be exclaiming while speaking.
Luo Feng to glance at him, “If you work hard, you too will have the chance of making it into the primal region.”
“Don’t laugh at me. For me to remain in the absolute beginning region in the next qualification battle is not bad already.” Suo Dragon shook his head, and his eyes were filled with helplessness. “If I drop to the Sky and Land region in the next qualification battle. Then, my position outside will drop too. What a headache!”
The domain lord core members, they were placed outside with authority and position!
According to Luo Feng’s way of thinking, they were placed as envoys in territories.
Primal region members, absolute beginning, sky and land members, last phase members, their treatment outside was completely different. When the primal region members ventured outside, just their guard team had an undying leading the army! The position they are finally arranged for is also according to their rank!
If one was originally a primal region member but knocked back into the absolute beginning region.
Then the position would shift accordingly, even the undying general would be shifted away and a sector lord would take his place.
“This punk sure is unlucky.”
“When he went out as a envoy, he must have been quite powerful. However, with his chances of getting knocked into the Sky and land region…his position will definitely shift and his rank will drop.” Luo Feng laughed within. Regardless, he chatted for awhile with this guy, and came to know of some of the things the envoys frequently encountered outside.
After a while…
The undying teacher arrived and began his class, immediately the room went silent. Even if they wanted to discuss, they had to communicated mentally, they definitely didn’t dare disrupt the class.
There were a total of four universe level students, of which one of the two had a face full of silver scales, and the other had bronze colored skin, while his forehead with a single black horn.
“Ah Shi, look, this Luo Feng is listening quite seriously.” The silver scaled man communicated.
The black horned man looked at the left corner in which Luo Feng was seated. “Mo Yi Lin, Ni Nan has told us to find a reason to challenge him and feel him out. How do you think we should do it? If we find trouble with him and he doesn’t care at all, and leaves the virtual universe, then we’d just look stupid.”
“Relax, I have a plan.” The silver scaled man squinted, like a venomous snake, “We’ll do this first…”
“It seems simple.” The black horned man frowned after listening.
“What else can we do, there’s no 100% guarantee plan.” The silver scaled man said.
“Alright, when the class ends, we’ll head over.” The horned man nodded.
After speaking to the class for awhile, under the gaze of the absolute geniuses, the Emperor undying vanished.
Luo Feng closed his eyes and tried to savor every bit of the lesson earlier before opening and seeing the two men before him. One of them had silver scales on his face and other was a sturdier looking man with a black horn on his head. Their similarity was that the two were universe level.
The two of them looked at Luo Feng.
“And you two are?” Luo Feng sat there looking at them.
“How do you do Luo Feng, I’m Mo Yi Lin.” The scaled man smiled.
“Luo Feng, I am Ah Shi.” The black horned man smiled. “We are both like you, universe level members, only we joined the Virtual Universe company earlier.”
“Is there something you two wish to say?” Luo Feng frowned.
Towards the universe level seniors, Luo Feng didn’t have much of a good impression. Because, as he chatted with Wuka the day before, Wuka had explained many things and even though he didn’t specifically point out anyone, there were only a total of 30 seniors, and Wuka had trouble with at least half of them.
“We know that you’ve passed the 7th level, respect.” The silver scaled man’s eyes gleamed. “I, Mo Yi Lin, love battles. Hence I’d like to have a go with you at the arena, just a friendly spar.”
“I too would like to spar with you.” The black horned man looked at Luo Feng.
Luo Feng frowned.
If it was for training, he could easily simulate very powerful opponents in the training grounds. Battling people however was mostly just for seeing who was better or finding out his trump card.
When you know your enemy, that’s when one can stay invincible.
“They probably have never fought with me, hence they don’t know my battle tactics and my trump cards. Even though there’s footage back from the genius battle, I was still very weak back then. I’m countless times stronger than back then. The footage back then doesn’t reflect my true strength, hence they came to challenge me.” Luo Feng understood immediately.
“Apologies, I have no interest.” Luo Feng stood to leave directly.
The black horned man and the silver scaled man exchanged glances, they knew they had to rely on their 2nd plan to challenge him.
“Haha, Luo Feng, you are the number one person in the new batch. I didn’t expect your guts to be that small.” The scaled man said.
“If you don’t even dare to accept our challenge, it looks like this new batch really has no hope.” The black horned man said.
“That stupid Wuka, he’s so much weaker but he still keeps challenging us. Luo Feng, you are strong, yet you don’t dare to do the same. This qualification battle, you newbies should just give up immediately.”
The groups of sector lords and domain lords in classroom 2 listening to the class before all turned over with interest. Most of them favored Luo Feng because he was indeed shocking. However that was only because their levels were different. They were sector lords and domain lords, they had no business messing with Luo Feng at this time, naturally they were indifferent.
“The two who are challenging really have no class.”
“No class at all. If it were me, I’d be too lazy to bother too.”
“Both of them are clowns.”
The sector lords and domain lords discussed, with some of the sector lords’ voices being extra loud. Immediately the expressions of the scaled man and the black horned man turned uglier.
Luo Feng however stopped in his footsteps.
This made the sector lords and domain lords shocked…was Luo Feng about to accept their challenge?
Was he so easy to provoke?
Luo Feng turned to look at the two of them.
“Hm?” The scaled man and black horned man discovered his gaze was hostile.
“Wuka battled you two?” Luo Feng looked at them.
“You mean that Manka prince?” The scaled man mocked. Besides, the black horned man too joined in, “That idiot, he battled us and was severely punished for it.”
“Congrats to you two.” Luo Feng said.
The scaled man and the black horned man were stunned.
“I didn’t wish to battle you two initially, because I didn’t wish to waste any time on you.” Luo Feng looked at the two, “However now, you’ve riled me up, I’ve decided…to accept that challenge this time.”
