Chapter 1103 – Competitive Mode
Next to an old pavilion:
With a flash of silver, the figures of Zhao Feng and the little thieving cat appeared.
“So close! Almost all of the Demigods from both lord dynasties have now come in!”
Zhao Feng felt slightly impatient. If he met the Demigods of the Great Gan Lord Dynasty, he would be protected by them, excluding Demigod Dark Ocean of course. But if he was together with the Demigods of the Great Gan Lord Dynasty, that would also mean that his fortune would drop dramatically. After all, if they had to protect Zhao Feng, they definitely wouldn’t give the truly precious treasures to Zhao Feng.
Because of that, Zhao Feng decided to continue acting alone. He had left many spatial markings behind, so as long as he was careful, it shouldn’t be much of a problem.
Zhao Feng then started to think about when he met Xin Wuheng a moment ago. He was still shocked and in disbelief that the person inside the golden-white palace was Xin Wuheng.
At the same time, Zhao Feng started to think about what Xin Wuheng had said to him;
“Zhao Feng, there’s not much time. Each building here is fortune. Choose one with your instinct!”
The way he phrased it gave Zhao Feng the impression that all the fortune here was set up by Xin Wuheng.
However, that wasn’t the main point. There were two points that raised Zhao Feng’s attention.
The first was that Xin Wuheng said there wasn’t much time. According to Zhao Feng’s guesses, the fortune here would only exist for a certain amount of time before it ceased to exist, whether because of some time limit or some other reason.
The second point was that Xin Wuheng said there was a lot of fortune here, but he told Zhao Feng to choose “one.” Why did Xin Wuheng tell Zhao Feng to choose only one fortune here when there were so many? Did he have to choose only one?
“Could it be that there’s a physical limitation here, and one person can only enter one building and obtain one fortune?” Zhao Feng came to this conclusion.
If that was the case, then Zhao Feng could be happy. He had resisted the temptation to enter any random building after entering. Instead, he looked around and used the Misty Spatial World to leave spatial markings behind.
Perhaps Xin Wuheng was lying, but Zhao Feng decided to listen just in case.
Zhao Feng also thought about the fact that Xin Wuheng was in the golden-white palace. Did that mean that the palace was Xin Wuheng’s fortune?
Zhao Feng opened the God’s Spiritual Eye and inspected his surroundings.
“If I can only enter one building, I can’t choose a bad one,” Zhao Feng said in a decisive tone.
A faint ripple of golden light spread across Zhao Feng’s left eye. Any building that he could completely see through was completely ignored by him.
Zhao Feng carefully flew through the unique structures and inspected the buildings around him.
At a certain moment, Zhao Feng saw a Demigod from the Dark Capital Cult inside a small wooden room. This Demigod took almost everything that he could after entering this small room, but when he tried to leave, his body was sent away by a strong surge of spatial laws and disappeared.
“As I thought, one person can only obtain one fortune!” Zhao Feng felt extremely lucky once more.
According to what happened on the path of light, Zhao Feng guessed that this Demigod should have been forcefully sent away to some other part of the God corpse. He was also very curious as to how Xin Wuheng knew this would happen.
The little thieving cat threw up the old coins in its paws and started to divine.
The little thieving cat waved its paws and pointed in a certain direction for Zhao Feng.
“Fine, I’ll believe you!” Zhao Feng trusted the little thieving cat’s divination abilities. The little thieving cat had already pointed in the direction of the golden-white palace before, so it clearly knew how to find the good stuff.
Zhao Feng slowly flew in the direction that the little thieving cat pointed. He saw Demigod Scarlet Blood from the Tie Family on the way, but Zhao Feng remained motionless and only continued to move after he left.
“There doesn’t seem to be any unique buildings around,” Zhao Feng murmured after flying for a while, but he suddenly stopped his footsteps.
“That clocktower…!?” Zhao Feng’s eyes landed on a certain large clocktower. This clocktower was green, and although it couldn’t be compared to the majestic golden-white palace, it stood out amongst the other buildings present.
However, the main reason why this clocktower attracted Zhao Feng’s attention was because his vision couldn’t see through the clocktower.
Zhao Feng circulated the transparency ability of his left eye to the maximum but could only see through the outer area of the clocktower.
“This clocktower is definitely not simple. Its structure also seems to be related to the Heaven’s Legacy Race!” Zhao Feng said in a certain tone.
Zhao Feng approached the clocktower and prepared to inspect it from a closer distance, but a figure walked out from the other side of the clocktower right at this instant.
“Zhao Feng!” The expression of the giant non-human figure turned to surprise and excitement. Demigod Ferocity had also been inspecting this clocktower; this clocktower was extremely unique and even blocked his Divine Sense. This was also why he didn’t immediately sense that Zhao Feng was on the other side of the clocktower.
“Demigod Ferocity!” Zhao Feng’s voice shook. His transparency ability couldn’t see through the clocktower, and his Divine Sense was blocked as well, so Zhao Feng didn’t sense Demigod Ferocity on the other side of the clocktower either.
“The distance is too close. I can’t use the Misty Spatial World in time!” Zhao Feng’s heart clenched as he felt a strong surge of life-and-death danger. The Misty Spatial World could only be used when the space was stable. The Misty Spatial World wasn’t an instant teleport – it required half a breath’s worth of time.
In half a breath’s time, Demigod Ferocity could kill Zhao Feng several dozen times at such a close distance.
“This is the only thing I can do!” Zhao Feng led the little thieving cat and charged into the open clocktower.
When Zhao Feng entered the clocktower, the door to the clocktower immediately started to close.
“Hahaha, let’s see where you run to!” Demigod Ferocity roared with laughter as he turned into a streak of light and entered through the closing gaps of the door. He never would have thought that he would be so lucky and find the person he wanted to kill so quickly.
“Dammit, he’s come in as well!” Zhao Feng’s expression changed to shock. He originally thought that once he entered the clocktower, it would immediately close and not let anyone else in, just like the golden-white palace. When Xin Wuheng was inside the palace, Zhao Feng couldn’t enter no matter what.
From the looks of it, Zhao Feng had miscalculated.
Zhao Feng sped through the steps of the clocktower. He saw many treasures on the way, but he didn’t have any time to pick them up.
A dark silver bow and a dark golden arrow appeared in Zhao Feng’s hands. Zhao Feng immediately pulled back the bowstring and shot out a replica God Slaying Arrow.
The image of a giant dark golden arrow shot downward through the air as it unleashed a terrifying dark golden storm of power.
“You want to injure me with this?” Demigod Ferocity revealed a gruesome smile. From his perspective, Zhao Feng wouldn’t be able to escape even if he had wings. It wouldn’t be too late to search for fortune after killing Zhao Feng.
A dark red tattered giant axe appeared in Demigod Ferocity’s hand, and Divine Power surged as Demigod Ferocity held the weapon in front of himself.
A storm of destruction instantly exploded, but the items within the clocktower remained unharmed.
“Go die!” Demigod Ferocity roared with laughter and slashed out with the tattered giant axe, unleashing a wave of dark red light.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Zhao Feng quickly hid behind a white pole.
Demigod Ferocity’s attack was blocked by the white pole in front of Zhao Feng. Not even a scratch was left behind.
“Little thieving cat!” In this dangerous situation, Zhao Feng could only ask the little thieving cat for help because he knew that the little thieving cat had a divine weapon. If the little thieving cat was able to use this divine weapon, it wouldn’t be a problem to severely injure Demigod Ferocity, and as long as he could severely injure Demigod Ferocity, Zhao Feng would have a chance to breathe and leave with the Misty Spatial World.
The little thieving cat shook its head and signaled that it still couldn’t use the power of the divine weapon.
Zhao Feng’s expression became ugly, but he knew that the requirements of using a divine weapon were extremely strict. Firstly, the divine weapon required an owner, and once it recognized an owner, no one else could use it unless the owner’s imprinted Intent was destroyed. Secondly, divine weapons required time to active their power. Lastly, divine weapons needed pure Divine Power.
“Do I really have to use the God Slaying Arrow?” Zhao Feng really didn’t want to do so. He wasn’t confident that he could kill Demigod Ferocity even if he used the true God Slaying Arrow. At that point, he would still need to leave with the Misty Spatial World, meaning that he would have to give up all the fortune here on top of losing the God Slaying Arrow itself.
“When can you hide now?” Demigod Ferocity had a smug smile as he closed in on Zhao Feng.
Two figures flew up the giant clocktower. Zhao Feng finally arrived at the top of the tower.
“This is…?” Zhao Feng’s expression paused. There was only a metallic stand on the highest floor of the clocktower. A triangle-shaped black piece of metal with countless green lights floated above the metallic stand.
“This should be the most precious treasure in the clocktower!” Zhao Feng didn’t know what it was, but he could tell that much.
“Fuck it, I need to get something at least!” Zhao Feng reached out toward the triangle on the metallic stand while preparing to take out the God Slaying Arrow.
At the very least, Zhao Feng needed to get something before leaving with the Misty Spatial World. However, when his palm touched the triangular black piece of metal, a brilliant beam of green light shot out.
The green light washed over everything, and a cold mechanical voice sounded from the center of the triangular black metal; “Detected two living beings nearby. Opening competition mode!”
“What’s going on?” Demigod Ferocity revealed an expression of fear when he felt this terrifying divine aura.
The green light faded away, and Zhao Feng and Demigod Ferocity appeared in another dimension. There was nothing in the sky, and the ground was paved with metal. There were many unique metal buildings in the distance.
Zhao Feng and Demigod Ferocity stood on a green metal board several hundred yards long. At the very center of the metal board was a metallic stand, and a triangular black piece of metal floated above it.
“Competitive mode is now open. Only the victor has the right to make an attempt at having the divine weapon recognize them as its owner!”
