Chapter 1018: Stygian Abyss
In a blink of an eye, Qin Feng found himself teleported to the middle of a jungle. There was a stutter of unique energy around him, shrinking Qin Feng’s consciousness and scanning abilities.
“Hmm, I only have about ten thousand meters of scanning range. That means the others are probably going to have about a few thousand meters of scanning range then.”
Qin Feng knew that this was a “Secret Territory” or a “Sanctuary” type realm. It was not a complete one—making it only about a thousand kilometers wide.
Still, the geography in the area seemed quite abundant in features. As such, even though it would not be difficult for one to detect an opponent here, it was also equally easy for one to keep themselves hidden.
Right now, it all depended on who was stronger when facing an opponent.
Usually, in this seven-day period, when a partic.i.p.ant saw someone stronger coming for them, they would do their best to hide. All they needed to do was to protect their badge given to them and make their alliance reach top 100 in the ranking. This would win realm-wide resources for their world.
And the best way to stay alive was to team up and work together.
Meanwhile, a gigantic eye emerged in the sky to monitor the fight between the two sides behind the clouds and relay back what it was seeing to the Human Alliance.
It was then, a cry of surprise could be heard from the Human Alliance.
This Human Peace Contest was like the Prodigy Tournament. There were hosts that would narrate what was happening on the field.
The eye had locked onto two persons. One of which was Qin Feng.
The S-tiers from Earth began to tense up as they paid attention to the scene. Even Seinakawa anxiously rubbed her own fingers as she watched.
About a thousand meters away from Qin Feng, an ability user had emerged—an ability user from the Dark Coalition!
A thousand meters. Even though it seemed rather far away, it was already too close a gap for one to escape from an ability user.
“Oh, partic.i.p.ant number 5—Qin Feng has now gotten him in a pinch. He’s just an S-tier ability user. So, if the field has suppressed his consciousness, he only has about hundreds of meters of scanning range. In this situation, there’s a high likelihood that he would get caught by his opponent. Now, let’s take a look at just who he is up against.”
The host quickly swiped through the data before sending it up to the holographic screen in the sky.
Everyone was sitting on the edge in their seats.
Shao Dongfeng, who was sitting amongst the crowd, smirked as he looked at the scene with a fling of joy.
“Oh, no. That’s Sakyaey. He’s number one in the Dark Coalition, with a combat power of 124,125!”
Everyone widened their eyes as they heard this, feeling dread for Qin Feng.
Shao Dongfeng beamed up a smile.
‘I wonder if this kiddo likes this little present I prepared for him.’
Yes. This was Shao Dongfeng’s doing. That spatial door was what he left for Qin Feng.
Usually, the coordinates of where one appeared in the Secret Territory was chosen randomly by the partic.i.p.ants via drawing lots. This was to avoid partic.i.p.ants from teaming up too early.
Still, it was rather easy for organizers to put someone they wanted on certain spots. Qin Feng had no one powerful enough to back him up; so he had to endure the same fate as the people who had refused to work with Shao Dongfeng—being put on the most dangerous spot in the field.
Sakyaey was powerful. He was, in fact, much more powerful than Ming Tianhao. In fact, Ming Tianhao could very well die if he were the one standing where Qin Feng was right now.
Compared to Ming Tianhao, Qin Feng was a n.o.body. And n.o.body would care if he died in the first round.
This was why Qin Feng had to face such injustice.
From the holographic screen, everyone could see that the wood and soil were beginning to change and morph. Sakyaey was pulling something and it was not good for Qin Feng.
He opened his mouth and swallowed a ma.s.sive, black worm. Then, energy swelled up in his body, giving him tremendous strength.
Seeing this, the host reported loudly, “Look! This is the fabled Giganum Marrow Devourer! Oh, how terrifying! After consuming this bug, Sakyaey’s strength would be boosted all the way to SS-tier! This would mean…”
Everyone knew what this meant—it meant that there was no escape for Qin Feng.
“Let us see how Qin Feng would deal with his peril. Right now, he still has a chance to flee!”
Unfortunately, Qin Feng did not run away. Instead, he walked straight toward Sakyaey’s direction.
“Oh no! Qin Feng’s scanning range is too weak. He can’t detect Sakyaey’s presence! If he keeps on going forward, he will be dead!”
In everyone’s eyes, Qin Feng was as good as dead.
Not one person thought highly of Qin Feng. This was not unexpected—Qin Feng was the only one who had not ascended past S9-tier. And as of the moment, Qin Feng had no means of ascending himself in a short time.
However, they got it completely wrong.
It was not that Qin Feng did not detect Sakyaey—in fact, it was Sakyaey who could not detect Qin Feng.
Qin Feng’s dark abilities had completely hidden him. As such, seeing that there was no one around him, Sakyaey took out the Giganum Marrow Devourer and ate it. So long as he had ascended to SS-tier, he could kill everyone—including the ones from the Dark Coalition, and grab the prizes for himself.
Qin Feng had already reached about hundreds of meters away from Sakyaey while he was trying to swallow the worm’s tail.
Qin Feng was so close to him.
This close of a distance was fatal.
Murderous intent flared up in Qin Feng’s eyes as dark runes swarmed around the area, masking him into the shadows—specifically, Sakyaey’s shadows.
Then, Sakyaey’s shadow began to distort into a black whirlpool, one that extended to hundreds of meters wide.
Sakyaey did not seem to notice any of this yet.
And just like that, he lost all his senses as he stood in the middle of the dark whirlpool.
He could not see.
He could not hear.
He could not smell.
He could not feel anything at all!
Qin Feng’s dark starglobe had already evolved so much. As such, there was no way he would not have mastered a new ability. And this was something he mastered in the Runic Galaxy Realm.
Stygian Abyss—an SS-tier ability!
Qin Feng had actually used this once—to block Shao Dongfeng from striking at him.
Now, he had unleashed it completely on Sakyaey.
Sakyaey had not even ascended completely to SS-tier yet, seeing that he was in the middle of eating the worm.
Shao Dongfeng, an SSS-tier, had lost all his senses for 0.1 second. This meant that this ability would work even more effectively on Sakyaey.
Qin Feng pulled out a saber and…
A glaring rainbow curved out of the saber’s blade as he slashed forward, crus.h.i.+ng everything hundreds of meters in front of him.
What a devastating slas.h.!.+
Sakyaey just stood there without any reaction as the Giganum Marrow Devourer’s tail was still dangling from his lips.
Then, a whiff of wind blew his way.
Sakyaey’s head and the worm in his mouth both dropped off from his neck and to the ground.
There was complete silence in the jungle.
No one made a sound in the Central City’s streaming center and arena.
