Chapter 14: A Murderous Intent Revealed
“What do you guys think? Do you think that Mu Feng will win the match in two years?”
“Nah, it’s not possible! His cultivation went down the drain, and on top of that, that all of his Meta-pulses were damaged. On the other hand, Shang Guan Qianzhi had already reached Tong Mai Ninth Sky and will soon be a true Zi Fu level cultivator. Besides, if he trains in the Royal Wudo Academy for a year, it’s certain that Mu Feng will be no match for him!”
“Well, I guess you’re right, haha! If that’s the case, let’s wait two years and see how it turns out! I bet that Mu Feng kneeling down and apologizing in public will be damn hilarious.”
Many people were still discussing about the bet.
After a little over an hour, the recruitment session for this year ended, with a total of more than 200 students being recruited into the Royal Wudo Academy.
Thousands of disciples took the test, but only about 200 of them were successfully recruited. One could see just how many disciples were eliminated.
Those who managed to pass the test were envied by their peers and praised by the adults. Mu Feng looked at the stage with eyes full of reluctance.
He was supposed to be the brightest student this year, but it really was a tragedy. However, Mu Feng bore no regrets, as he had accompanied his father in his last battle. He was neither afraid nor ashamed.
In the meantime, the other Mu disciples looked at Mu Feng with mixed feelings. Maybe it was because of what Mu Kuang had said, but they didn’t make him a laughing stock anymore.
“Brother Feng, don’t pay any attention to what the others say. The world is so large, I don’t believe that we can’t find a cure for your Meta-pulses!”
Mu Kuang consoled him.
“Haha, don’t you worry. I will not be beaten down that easily. Xiao Kuang, just you wait. One day, they’ll regret what they said today!”
Mu Feng said coldly, as looked at Zhao Heng who was still standing at the stage.
“Okay. I have faith in you, Brother Feng.”
“Haha, thank you, my good brother. By the way, are you really going to pull out from the Royal Wudo Academy?”
“Haih, don’t worry. Nothing would change if I enroll again in two years. I’ll enroll with you once again. We’re still young anyway.”
Mu Kuang said without dwelling on the matter. His words were full of faith and trust.
“Alright then. In two years, we brothers will enroll into the Royal Wudo Academy and give them a slap in their faces! Let’s go home.”
During this time, the crowd had gradually started to scatter. Mu Feng and Mu Kuang were about to head home too.
However, a figure was quietly approaching Mu Feng.
All of a sudden, Mu Feng’s hair stood on end and he felt a murderous intent that was directed at him from the crowd.
He had become extra vigilant after he started cultivating the sacred book of Asura.
At this moment, a beam of white light flashed out as fast as lightning, aimed at Mu Feng’s skull.
Mu Feng swayed his body slightly to the left and the strike passed right in front of his cheeks, nearly piercing a hole in his skull.
The light pierced the skull of a Mu disciple who was standing in front of him, killing him on the spot.
Surprisingly, the beam of light was actually a sleeve arrow!
“Aaaa… somebody’s dead!”
The people around them started screaming in fear. All of a sudden, a wave of panic swept through the crowd and they started running for their lives.
Swoosh! Swish! Swoosh!
A few more arrows shot out from the crowd once more. Mu Feng shouted angrily and pushed Mu Kuang away. One of the arrows hit his shoulder and he instantly felt a sharp pain.
Mu Feng then crouched down and rolled several meters away to dodge the remaining arrows. He then grabbed hold of the Mu disciple’s corpse and used it as a shield to block the attacks.
Kachakk! Kachakk! Kachakk!
Another three arrows pierced into the corpse.
These attacks were obviously aiming at Mu Feng!
“There’s an assassin!”
A shout rang out from the crowd and some of the soldiers on patrol finally rushed over.
Two figures dashed out from the crowd towards Mu Feng as fast as panthers.
They were two men who were dressed in grey and their faces were covered with black masks.
Both of them pulled out knives that were attached on their waists and stabbed directly towards Mu Feng.
Two beams of Knife Qi cut through the air and the sounds of metal loudly resounded throughout the square.
Mu Feng’s expression changed drastically. He immediately did a donkey flip and dodged the attack. The Knife Qi struck the ground, leaving two long, deep marks on the granite floor.
One of the strikes hit the corpse, nearly splitting it in half.
When the two men saw that Mu Feng managed to dodge their first attacks, they attacked Mu Feng simultaneously from both sides. A light flashed across Mu Feng’s hand and a knife appeared. He then backed up a few more steps.
Meanwhile, one of them leaped up more than two meters high and struck down violently at Mu Feng.
Mu Feng blocked the attack with his knife while bending his body slightly. Sparks flew as the knives slid against each other, and the powerful strike was successfully blocked by Mu Feng.
Although he had lost his cultivation, he didn’t lose his fighting skills.
However, at this moment, the other man leaped up and landed a heavy kick on Mu Feng’s chest. Mu Feng spat out a mouthful of blood and fell down on the ground.
“Go to hell!”
The other man then jumped up and prepared to strike down at Mu Feng’s skull.
“Don’t you dare!”
At this time, a loud, angry shout rang out from afar.
A roar resounded and a beam of powerful Vitality shaped like a flaming lion flashed across the air, striking at the assassin.
The assassin’s body was blown up into pieces before he could even scream.
A man dressed in black robes leaped up in mid-air like a flying hawk.
It was Mu Chen!
The other assassin instantly turned pale, turned ,and started to flee. However, with a flick of his finger, Mu Chen shot another beam of red-colored Vitality towards the assassin. The strike hit his leg and blood splattered out.
The assassin fell to the ground as his leg was pierced by Mu Chen’s Vitality.
“Little Lord Feng!”
After that, a group of Mu guards hurried over and surrounded Mu Feng. They pulled out their knives and looked around vigilantly.
Mu Feng shakily stood up. He had nearly died just now.
“Brother Feng, are you alright?”
Mu Kuang hurried over and asked.
Mu Feng shook his head.
Meanwhile, Mu Chen walked towards the assassin with a solemn expression. He then stepped on the assassin’s other leg.
His other leg bone was broken.
The assassin screamed in pain.
Mu Chen said coldly: “Who are you? Why do you want to assassinate my Mu disciple? Answer me this instant, or I will turn your life into a living hell!”
Before the assassin could finish his sentence, another two arrows suddenly shot out from the crowd. A trace of coldness flashed across Mu Chen’s eyes and he caught the sleeve arrow with his bare hands.
However, the other arrow pierced through the assassin’s skull and he died on the spot.
The enemy was trying to get rid of all witnesses!
Mu Chen looked around furiously, but he didn’t manage to pinpoint the culprit, as the crowd was still in a commotion.
Only after this did the soldiers rushed over……
