Chapter 350
The Chasing demon sect was filled by excited rumors in the following days .

Perry, the strongest disciple in the residential area of the rank 2 cultivators, had challenged Noah, the new honorary disciple of the sect .
The rumors, as per their nature, didn't tell the exact events that led Perry to issue the challenge .
"I heard that Zach was so disrespectful that he refused to even look at Perry!"
"No . I heard that Senior Perry was forced to challenge Zach because he wouldn't accept his honest pointers . "
"I actually heard that Zach refused Perry's challenge until he offered him merit points . I even heard that Zach accused Perry of being more suitable for the orthodox sects . "
'Words run faster than light, how did I even end in this situation . '
Noah thought as he heard the many voices coming from the stages around him .
He was in one of the training areas of the sect, the purple terrain was filled by inscriptions and many seats were placed all around the battle area .
Only seventy percent of the seats were filled, the audience was mostly made of rank 1 and 2 cultivators with only a few rank 3 disciples that had connections with Perry .
Of course, Noah was unaware of Perry's title as the strongest disciple in the second rank and didn't also know about his connections with the rank 3 cultivators that were on the stages .

Perry was on the other side of the arena, his tight gray robe coupled with his burly body gave him a heroic aura, a few women in the audience found themselves unable to move their gazes away from him .
Noah, on the other hand, seemed incredibly plain .
He wore his usual black suit and his short but messy hair conflicted with his cold expression .
Also, his body was slender rather than bulgy and he was shorter than Perry, if looks could decide the outcome of a battle, Noah would have lost already .
However, some spectators didn't have the same thoughts as the rest of the audience .
Noah didn't radiate any kind of aura, not even a whiff of his cultivation level could be discerned by the inspections of the cultivators in the second rank .
Those in the third rank, instead, stared at him with surprised expressions and even with traces of interest, they seemed to have picked up some clues about Noah's power .
Roy walked from behind Noah and neared his mouth to his ear as he whispered a few words .
"The rules of the sect are laxer when it comes to official challenges but try to go easy on him, he is a promising disciple . "
After those warnings, Roy moved toward the stages, bows were performed by the cultivators that he passed by .

'As I suspected, he knows about my unusual situation . '
Noah thought .
He knew that Roy was stronger than him so there was a high chance that he had understood his power .
Also, he had made Noah stop on the first floor of the mission's building, meaning that he knew that he was still a rank 2 cultivator .
'Even Elder Iris has laid her eyes on me, it was impossible to hide this information after all . '

The information Noah was thinking about was, of course, his rank 3 sea of consciousness!
He had initially hoped to hide that quality until he became rank 3 cultivator but he had met cultivators far stronger than him as soon as he entered the sect, he simply couldn't hide his power from them .
However, Noah soon accepted that outcome, he was a proper member of the sect, the information about his power could only be divulged to other disciples but never to outsiders .
'Let's see, how should I approach this?'

Noa began to think about the imminent battle .
He was completely confident in his capability to defeat Perry but he had to limit himself in the battle .
That wasn't a fight to the death after all, it was only a simple spar to decide who was the stronger between the two of them .
'The Demonic form is an absolute no, it's better to not use the Demonic swords either . The Mental tremor is another no, Perry's sea of consciousness would just shatter under that spell . Warp and martial arts then . '
Noah set the fighting style in his mind and begun to walk toward Perry .
The audience was silenced by that gesture and they raised their concentration, waiting for the battle to begin .
Perry didn't waste time, as soon as he saw Noah's near him, he did the same, wielding a short sword as he jumped at the man in front of him .
Two white sabers appeared in Noah's hands and four additional arms materialized as he prepared himself for the imminent clash .
Then, the six sabers met the short sword .
Noah found himself forced to use three weapons to defend from the explosive power behind the sword, it seemed that Perry's body had the strength of a giant as he slashed vertically .

However, even if he was sent back, Noah managed to defend and his other sabers were able to land on Perry's body .
The first clash ended quickly, Noah was pushed back for a few meters but he was unharmed .
Perry, instead, remained still in his position as he stared at the three cuts on his robe .
The skin behind the robe showed some light wounds, a few drops of blood came out of them before the regenerative proprieties of his body healed them .
'Strange . His body is clearly oriented toward strength and defense but he uses such an unsuitable weapon, maybe his martial art will be different . '
Noah analyzed the clash and found something amiss in Perry's fighting style .
"Shall we get serious?"
Perry asked with a smile but Noah only answered with a shrug of his shoulders .
Perry then charged again, his massive body resembled a horned bull pouncing at Noah as he stretched the short sword right in front of him .
The tip of the sword began to shine with a brown light and his body accelerated, releasing a gray smoke due to the friction force with the air .
Staring at the incoming horned fuming figure, Noah knew that he had to dodge .
