Chapter 577: Traces and Clues
Then, the crowd continued to move forward. With their traveling speed, Qin Feng and Bai Li left no traces on the snow path, and they were even traveling faster than Hei Xiong and the others.
Soon, they had arrived at the entrance of a cave among the snowy mountain ranges.
It was a secretive entrance led by twisted paths, where people from the Xue Yuan state, apt.i.tude users from two of the major cities, and even the bounty hunters would avoid sieging!
Qin Feng followed and walked into the cave, the surrounding was pitch-black at the beginning, after some careful meandering for more than thirty meters, a s.h.i.+ny fluorite had appeared.
Fluorite was a rare self-illuminating stone, a cheap item that was mostly used for lighting purposes.
Meanwhile, the wall around the cave was embedded with countless numbers of fluorites that had revealed every part of the inner cave.
Soon, they had entered a giant cave.
From the appearance, it was a cave with length of a hundred meters, width of about fifty meters, however it was irregularly structured.
Both sides of the walls were already rebuilt into towers of houses that were about eight levels in height, the inner structures of the houses were hidden from Qin Feng, however, the environment would not be too bad.
There was a pathway from the central square that was connected to the end of the cave, and formed into a new cave, one could imagine that there would be another s.p.a.ce on the other end.
With the refined building materials and skills of the earth ability users, it would only take a short amount of time to build such an underground kingdom, however, the number of populations within had still caught Qin Feng off guard.
Groups of people circling around were seen on both sides of the path, some had even dominated a place to display some of their ability equipment, ultra beast furs, and most of them were spirit herbs.
“Xue Yuan Ginseng, spirit herbs aged for at least ten years, selling off at three million!”
“F-tier snow lotus, with the lotus seed still intact!”
“Heaven Peak Fruit…”
Callings from the sellers were constantly heard, of course, they were all stocked with valuable goods or large amounts of goods, while most of them remained silent and alert while observing the people in the surrounding.
“Master, I have sent you the map of this place, just in case you get lost in here, as this is quite a huge place!”
Hei Xiong opened his communicator and transferred a copy of the map to Qin Feng.
Qin Feng took a glance and memorized the map.
“Hmm, bring me to the potion seller first!” Qin Feng ordered.
Hei Xiong immediately led Qin Feng into the deeper part of the cave.
Along the main path, there were several other caves that led to different paths, all of them were streets that looked alike, however, all of them served different purposes.
Bai Li sniffed under the cape, as she was very sensitive toward spirit herbs, she was able to identify all of the herbs that were sold there. However, none of them were quality goods, and she immediately covered her mouth in dissatisfaction.
Everyone was moving fast for the past ten minutes; however, they had only arrived at one of the caves, and surprisingly, it was a concave-shaped cave centered by a square of fifty meters in diameter, surrounded by rings of stairs, or perhaps, they were seats.
A bunch of people was seated while surrounded by enlarged screens in the surroundings.
It was a… battle arena!
Qin Feng identified the situation.
Then, Hei Xiong lowered his voice and pointed toward a far direction where the bet station was located.
“This place is governed by Genesis, they are one of the most influential parties on the outer region of Winter Fort, we were told that their strongest alliance leader is a D-tier apt.i.tude user, very powerful!”
Qin Feng did not give any answer, if it was merely a D-tier apt.i.tude user, he would not even be bothered.
“Are they selling those potions?” Qin Feng asked.
“They won’t sell it to just anyone, as everyone knows that despite the strong effects of the potion, it also has its side effects, and using it will eventually cost lives!” Hei Xiong warned.
Qin Feng nodded, he realized that not every member of the Dark Coalition were imbeciles. Although the potion would enable powerful capability enhancement, it would also consume the life of its own user.
Also, not everyone would be willing to turn themselves into a half-beast human creature!
Hei Xiong continued, “However, there are pros and cons, the powerful effect of consuming the potion would secure the entry requirement to join Genesis, which is a great opportunity, look at that person down there, a member of the alliance!”
Hei Xiong pointed toward a person who was combating fifty meters away, it was an F5-tier apt.i.tude user.
With such capability, it would only require a slight internal strength output from Qin Feng to crush the person to death.
However, as Qin Feng identified that person with his gaze, he was shocked.
The capability that the F5-tier apt.i.tude user had was rather violent, however, Qin Feng had noticed something beyond the talent of the apt.i.tude user.
It was the unique tattoo that was on the neck!
The tattoo of the Z Organization.
“Genesis!” Qin Feng was struck by the sudden realization.
Regardless of whether it was the headquarters of Genesis, or if it was another Dark Coalition branch of the Z Organization, finally, there were some clues that they had left behind!
Furthermore, capability of a D-tier apt.i.tude user would most probably be similar to Yan Fang’s capability before his arrest, or Yan Shuo’s capability after his transformation into a D-tier beast emperor.
This time, they would not get away from Qin Feng.
A wild crowd was shouting from below the stage, the name of the F-tier ancient warrior was called out.
“Kang Lai! Kang Lai!”
Kang Lai was quite talented in combat, and the crowd was not disappointed, explosive attacks and violence that crushed the opponents were seen from his hands that had been constantly switching into wolf claws during the battle.
However, from the expression of the audience, they were already familiar with the bizarre mutation, including the one that Kang Lai had shown!
A wolf claw was slashed across the opponent’s chest.
Kang Lai’s opponent let out a miserable shriek while fresh blood squirted out from the chest, the opponent looked toward the huge chunk of flesh on Kang Lai’s hand and knew that the fate of death had arrived!
“Ah, don’t kill me, Elder Kang, I’ll give you money, I’ll give you!”
Kang Lai sneered and licked the flesh on his hand, and even tore a piece of flesh and dropped it into his mouth, it was then chewed and swallowed, his eyes were filled with blood-red color and his mighty bearings had even doubled!
“Hahaha, I would prefer to enjoy the moment when you struggle before death!”
As soon as Kang Lai had ended his sentence, Kang Lai gripped onto his opponent’s throat with his claw and slit through it, fresh blood was squirted all around.
The battle arena was pitch-black colored, and the blood droplets were soon immersed into the soil on the ground.
Perhaps, the black battle arena was formed by the intense blood-red color of blood!
Kang Lai’s opponent had gradually stopped struggling, and Kang Lai had won the battle.
The crowd burst into a mixture of cheers and curses, Qin Feng stared at Kang Lai as he directed his sentence at someone else, “Alright, get lost, I’ll spare your life for now, the next time I see you again, I cannot guarantee that I won’t kill you!”
Qin Feng was directing his sentence at Hei Xiong!
