Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 02 Chapter 006: Number 1 Evil Man

The next day:

“You are the first one!” a black-clad man said to Gu Hai.

Of the sixteen evil men, Gu Hai was first?

Gu Hai did not say anything. The black-clad men around all clutched their weapons as they brought the shackled Gu Hai out of the cell.

Although the black-clad men did not see the evil men as humans, they evidently knew how ferocious the evil men were, so they took great caution.

Gu Hai did not say anything. He followed the black-clad men, and they slowly walked towards a large exit.

“Quick, look! Someone is coming out!”

“The first evil man!”

Cheers and shouts came from the vast spectators’ grandstand. Countless cultivators already sat there, calling for the event to begin quickly.

Many black-clad men stood at the entrance. This place was the most tightly guarded.

As they brought Gu Hai over, the many black-clad men watched him carefully.

“Unshackle him!” the leading black-clad man said.

“Yes!”

The other black-clad men quickly unshackled and unchained him.

Gu Hai stretched and shook his hands as he looked at the black-clad men surrounding him.

“Brat, listen up. I think you understand the rules. Fight well. If you win, you have a chance to survive!” the leading black-clad man said coldly.

As the leading black-clad man spoke, he waved his hand.

Buzz!

Suddenly, blue light appeared over the entire beast arena.

Gu Hai narrowed his eyes when the blue light appeared. He had seen this blue light more than a month ago when the mask of a newcomer exploded on contact with the blue light, taking that evil man’s head with it.

Gu Hai took a deep breath and nodded.

The blue light was a barrier between the beast arena and the spectator stands. It seemed like a cage, trapping the evil man in the beast arena.

Suddenly, ritual arrays appeared on the valley walls around.

Whoosh!

Red energy ropes shot out from the ritual arrays and instantly bound Gu Hai’s limbs, preventing him from moving.

Gu Hai’s expression changed, but he did not cry out. Instead, he carefully sensed and observed.

Boom!

A bolt of electrical light streaked out of one of the ritual arrays, charging into Gu Hai’s body without any warning.

Bang!

Gu Hai felt an explosion in his dantian, and intense pain came from there.

His expression changed, but the red energy ropes firmly held him, preventing him from moving.

“Toss him out!” the leading black-clad man said.

The red energy ropes immediately tossed Gu Hai to the center of the beast arena.

Bang!

When Gu Hai landed, he writhed in pain. After a while, the intense pain from his dantian slowly eased.

During this time, Gu Hai had been paying attention to his dantian. In the earlier instant, he had seen the gray energy isolating his dantian recede and emerge through his belly button.

Buzz!

Some Veritable Energy came out of his dantian and immediately filled his body.

“My cultivation recovered?” Gu Hai’s expression changed.

Gu Hai stood up slowly. Indeed, he had recovered his Veritable Energy. Now, he could sense his energy again.

“An electrical current? So, the key to breaking the seal is electricity, using a high voltage to break the seal?” Gu Hai’s eyes lit up as he took a deep breath.

Then, Gu Hai turned his head to look at the exit.

At the moment, the blue light barrier blocked the exit. The black-clad men all stood on the other side.

A blue wall of light?

“They are very cautious,” Gu Hai said with a cold voice after taking another deep breath.

The blue light could explode the bronze mask. Naturally, Gu Hai would not test it at the moment.

Suddenly, a loud shout came from the spectator stands.

“A new cycle begins. This is Number 1, the first person to fight in this cycle. Can everyone see him? This Number 1 is an evil man from a certain island of the Thousand Islands Sea. He once slaughtered an entire ordinary city, not sparing anyone, an extremely cruel person. As for his cultivation and strength, you can see for yourselves!”

The host’s voice spread throughout the place.

“Roar!”

Suddenly, a roar came from the other side of the beast arena.

Clack! Clack! Clack! Clack!

The exit on that side seemed to be a metal door, making loud sounds as it slowly opened.

Rumble…!

A gigantic, three-meter-tall wild boar slowly came out, sporting blood-red tusks. As it walked, it gave off rumbling sounds. Its bloodshot eyes locked on to Gu Hai.

“Can everyone see it? This is the wild boar spirit that ate the evil men during the last cycle, an animal spirit that has reached the Innate Realm’s fifth layer. Although it is only in the Innate Realm’s fifth layer, it is still a strong beast from the forest. Its thick skin—its special characteristic—is so thick that Innate Realm cultivators cannot cut it even with weapons. It might look ugly, but it is very powerful!” The host’s voice rang out again.

“Evil man Number 1 will fight this wild boar spirit to the death. Place your bets now; bet on who lives and who dies. You can also bet on how long the evil man will survive or how long the wild boar spirit will survive—the more accurate your guess, the greater your profits. Make your bets now. Quickly!” the host shouted.

“This wild boar spirit again? It’s the one. Haha! I won by betting on it previously. It has already eaten four evil men in succession!” someone cried out.

“I bet that the wild boar spirit wins! Eat that evil man! Eat him!”

“I bet on evil man Number 1! Kill that beast! Kill it!”

“I bet that the wild boar kills the evil man within half an hour. Quickly, place that bet for me!”

Loud cries rang out in the surroundings. Clearly, there was not much time for people to place their bets. Many people wagered anxiously. Large numbers of Great Feng Mafia Family disciples scattered throughout the area collected the audience’s bets.

The surroundings turned noisy.

Gu Hai’s expression turned sullen. Then, he revealed a cold smile. “I am an evil man who slaughtered a city? What slander!”

However, Gu Hai did not refute this information, only sizing up the surroundings.

More than ten thousand people sat in the spectator stands. However, only three thousand-odd placed bets. Clearly, many people wanted to observe the situation first, not wanting to leave their money to luck.

“Alright, the time for betting has ended!” The host’s voice rang out once again.

Gu Hai continued to scrutinize the surroundings. As he looked at the structure of the beast arena, he sought out all possibilities.

“Roar!” The wild boar spirit, with its bloodshot eyes, suddenly charged at Gu Hai.

The wild boar charged over. Narrowing his eyes, Gu Hai twisted his body to dodge the wild boar spirit’s charge quickly. He could tell how horrifying this strong charge was with just a glance.

Swish!

The wild boar spirit was not easy to deal with. It suddenly swung its tail at Gu Hai.

While the wild boar spirit was large, it was not clumsy and cumbersome. It swung its tail at a breakneck speed.

Gu Hai goggled. Knowing that he could not dodge, he immediately countered with a palm strike.

Boom!

A loud sound rang out, and Gu Hai clashed with a strong tornado.

Gu Hai moved back slightly, and the wild boar turned its body to size up Gu Hai coldly.

Just at this moment, Gu Hai’s expression suddenly changed. “The First Song Sect Master?”

Gu Hai saw a white-clad man looking down interestedly from a wide spectator stand, apparently here to gamble as well. This white-clad man was none other than the First Song Sect Master.

Now, Gu Hai wore a mask, and his identity was different, so the First Song Sect Master did not suspect at all that he was Gu Hai.

“Quick! Quick! Kill it! Kill the beast!”

“Wild boar spirit! Kill him! Quickly eat him!”

The spectator stands turned noisy.

When Gu Hai saw the First Song Sect Master, his expression turned sullen. Then, he tilted his body to dodge the wild boar’s charge again.

Bang!

The wild boar had experienced many battles. The instant Gu Hai dodged, it swung its body to the side.

Boom!

Gu Hai stepped back, and the wild boar stumbled.

“Roar! Roar! Roar!”

The wild boar let out a series of roars, appearing enraged by Gu Hai. Then, it turned its head and charged at him even more wildly. When it opened its mouth, a ferocious aura surged out, and Veritable Energy covered it. Countless Veritable Energy spikes appeared on its body, looking very fierce.

However, Gu Hai dodged again.

Since Gu Hai saw the First Song Sect Master, he naturally did not dare to use the True Dragon Innate Cultivation Technique. He only used ordinary Veritable Energy and brute force to deal with this boar. More importantly, Gu Hai wanted to look around to see if he could spot more familiar people.

It would be great if he could.

Rumble…!

Gu Hai dodged over and over again. To others, it looked like he was fleeing in a miserable state and the wild boar was winning.

“Hahaha! Quickly, eat him! Kill evil man Number 1!”

“Wild boar spirit! Wild boar spirit! Wild boar spirit!”

“Wild boar spirit! Wild boar spirit!”

Wild cheers came from the spectator stands. After all, this affected their spirit stones. Even cultivators could not avoid being affected by mundane wealth. All of them cried out with bloodshot eyes.

After fighting for one hour, the wild boar spirit failed to injure Gu Hai. Now, it was extremely frustrated.

“Roar!” The wild boar spirit slowed down and pressed towards Gu Hai in measured steps.

The wild boar spirit was very smart. It knew that the evil men did not want to touch the blue light around the beast arena, so it wanted to drive Gu Hai towards the blue light barrier.

“Roar!”

The wild boar spirit moved towards Gu Hai, moving step by step.

Gu Hai’s face sank.

“Wretched beast, you really don’t want to live for a while longer?” Gu Hai said coldly.

This time, Gu Hai could not escape.

Soon, Gu Hai would enter its attack range, so the wild boar spirit started to store up power.

“Roar!”

Suddenly, the wild boar charged at Gu Hai.

This time, Gu Hai did not dodge. In the blink of an eye, the two tusks arrived before Gu Hai. He could no longer dodge.

“Hahaha! He is finished. Tear him apart! Tear that evil man apart!”

“There is no place for him to hide this time!”

“At this distance, no Innate Realm cultivator can dodge!”

“Kill him!”

“Kill him!”

“Kill him!”

Countless cultivators roared excitedly.

Boom!

A loud sound rang out as Gu Hai and the wild boar faced each other in a frontal confrontation. However, this clash made all the people watching from the spectator stands feel stifled, and they looked at the beast arena in shock.

The expected scene of the wild boar knocking Gu Hai away did not appear.

Instead, Gu Hai suddenly grabbed the wild boar’s tusks. Then, he shifted his right foot back and pushed hard. A cloud of dust soared up from the ground as he stopped the wild boar spirit.

“He blocked the wild boar spirit? How is that possible?”

“Did that wild boar spirit not eat? Gore him to death with your tusks!”

Wild cries came from the spectator stands.

In the beast arena, Gu Hai glared.

“Ha!” Gu Hai shouted.

Whine! Whine! Whine! Whine!

The wild boar whined miserably as Gu Hai raised it by its tusks.

“What?” Shocked cries rang out in the surroundings.

“Wretched beast. Humph!” Gu Hai let out a cold shout as he pulled hard.

Boom!

The wild boar’s head suddenly exploded, and blood spattered everywhere. Gu Hai had used his strength to pull the two tusks apart. Pulled by the tusks’ roots, the wild boar’s skull and brain got ripped apart.

Bang!

When the three-meter-tall wild boar landed, its head was already mangled. Just a moment ago, it was still a powerful, ferocious beast. Gu Hai had actually ripped its head apart with his bare hands.

The scene looked incredibly bloody.

The people who bet on the wild boar gaped at Gu Hai in shock.

The people who bet on Gu Hai cheered suddenly.

“Number 1! Number 1! Number 1!”

Cheers filled the spectator stands. Countless cultivators who won their wager continuously called out Gu Hai’s number.

It seemed like this Number 1 was a hero who returned in triumph. All those who bet on him cheered loudly.

In the VIP spectator stands:

“First Song Sect Master, sorry. We are not clear on this evil man’s strength, either,” a black-clad man apologized softly.

“It doesn’t matter, just some spirit stones. I can afford to lose that,” the First Song Sect Master said indifferently.

“Number 1! Number 1! Number 1!” Countless people chanted in the surroundings.

Novel Notes

Hey guys, you all probably have been seeing the occasional message about Patreon and how EIF isn't doing very well financially. So I held out as long as I can, and unfortunately, things are not looking up. In the interest of being able to keep up a sustainable income to pay my bills and pay the team sufficiently, I'm going to have to lower the release rates of EIF in favor of picking up another novel. As of now, I have not found another novel yet, but I will be decreasing the release rates from May onwards so that I have time to search for the next novel. For now, the rates will be lowered to 30 chapters a month, essentially daily chapters.
