World of Beasts: I Can See Their Hidden Stats! - Chapter 81
More than half an hour had passed, but the two brothers were still at a standstill!
As his mana began to dry up, John’s flame armor began to thin.
However, Mars was no better!
Due to a lack of mana, he was unable to fire any more bullets, and it was also difficult for him to create more water humanoids to protect him.
However, the feud between the siblings was too strong!
They refused to budge an inch!
Once they exhausted their mana, and their Battle Beasts returned to their inventories, they immediately engaged in a brutal melee!
As the meaty thuds of flesh colliding rang out, the audience began to wonder whether they were watching a boxing match instead!
“Young Master Alva, isn’t your butler a little too disgraceful?”
“Fighting without the use of Battle Beasts is an insult to the Beastmasters’ status!”
“It’s not just Beastmasters! It’s a disgrace to nobles as well!”
The few noble lords did not approve of Mars’ actions. In the eyes of these high and pompous people, the so-called “dignity” of the nobles took precedence over the results of the battle!
They constantly piled on pressure on Alva!
“Gentlemen, please calm down. I’ll handle this situation…”
As the nobles were his prospective partners in the future, in spite of his horrible temper, Alva still tried his best to endure their comments.
He shot a glance to the chief judge, and the latter immediately understood.
“This match has been decided! Both sides, withdraw from the dueling platform!”
With that, a few judges went up to the stage and separated the bloodied brothers from one another!
“This duel… Is a draw!”
There was no dispute between the two sides regarding the result.
No side had gained an advantage, and at the same time, no side had lost anything as well.
Mars returned to the preparation area, exhausted, and panting like a dog.
“Your actions near the end of the duel was disappointing!” Alva glared fiercely at Mars as he made his way over.
“Forgive me, young master. In my opinion, as long as we can eliminate the White family’s opponents, the tactics we use do not matter…”
However, Alva showed no sympathy to his father’s secretary.
In his opinion, Mars was no different than a dog that was adopted by his father!
The moment he stopped providing any benefits, he would abandon him without a second thought!
However, his father had thought differently, and he had shown great respect for Mars, even going as far as to promote him to a noble’s status. This was something that Alva had never understood.
On the other hand, the second son, Moto, had shown no concern towards Mars’ actions. He had dozed off in his seat instead.
However, there was no time to fuss over such trivial issues. After letting out a heavy harrumph, Alva took off his long robe, and revealed his body full of sturdy muscles.
He already looked plenty sturdy before this, but with his upper-half now laid-bare, he looked like a god of war, awe-inspiring to his allies, and intimidating to his opponents!
Under the cheers from the nobles’, he leaped and landed directly on the dueling platform!
The tiles under his feet shattered!
“Please send out your next participant, Federal Academy!” The chief judge signaled.
Just as Locke was about to stand up, Tristan held him down.
“I’ll take this duel. I’ve been looking forward to fighting Alva for a long time. Please take care of John…” After placing John in his seat, Tristan then made his way towards the battle platform.
Locke had never seen his gentlemanly instructor in action before. Noticing the determination in his voice, Locke made no attempts to stop him.
Instead, Locke turned his head and waved at his Diamond Class classmate who owned a medical Battle Beast.
“The second duel is about to begin! Both sides, please summon your beasts!”
Alva raised his head and looked at Tristan. After thinking for a long while, he then spoke with an amused expression, “So, it’s you, huh? I remember you, you were a student in the Diamond Class as well, right…”
While he spoke, the orange glow of an epic rank Battle Beast enveloped the platform, and the murderous black tank appeared!
“I didn’t expect that someone as influential as you would remember me…”
With a thunderous slam, Black Tortoise appeared behind Tristan as well.
“Woah! Their Battle Beasts’ are massive!”
“I’ve heard that Black Tortoise is also a mechanical-type. However, had the students not walked out from its hatch earlier, I would never have believed the rumors…”
“It feels like they’re evenly matched…”
Tristan’s response had left a bad taste in Alva’s mouth. He immediately spat, “Don’t flatter yourself. The only reason I remember you is because you’re a mechanical-type Beastmaster as well. That’s all…”
At this moment, Alva’s eyes flashed!
His black tank churned, and it suddenly charged towards Tristan!
However, Tristan had already anticipated Alva’s move. Black Tortoise shifted its shell downwards, and shielded its master!
A loud crash could be heard as the two Battle Beasts collided into one another!
“It’s very tough…” Alva was only testing Black Tortoise’s defensive capabilities. Once he had affirmed his opponent’s strength, he immediately recalled Heaven-disrupting Tank.
Alva jumped onto the top of the tank, and while leaning on the muzzle of the canon, Alva threw a taunting glance at Tristan.
Black Tortoise underwent a massive change at this moment!
All of its biological characteristics were gone, and it now looked like a true mechanical contraption!
Even its snake-like tail1 had transformed into a forward-facing cannon!
“Beast Tail Cannon! Fire!”
It was Tristan’s turn to attack.
A cannonball was launched along the barrel of the black tortoise’s tail cannon and it was directly headed towards the Heaven-disrupting Tank!
Alva entered his tank. After giving an order, his tank fired a cannon as well!
An explosion rang out, and the dueling platform quaked!
Surprisingly, however, not a single scrap of shrapnel was created.
“Regardless of the type of Battle Beast, all their moves are created via mana. As such, you need not be surprised…” John explained. Although he still had not recovered from his wounds, his nature as an educator had compelled him to clear Locke’s confusion.
A full-on firefight had already begun between the two duelists on the platform. The two Battle Beasts constantly exchanged shots at one another while making evasive maneuvers.
Their cannon shots were in sync!
To the audience, the duel was more akin to a military confrontation.
Alva’s attack was quite fierce. The firepower of his cannonballs was obviously higher than his opponent’s!
Tristan, on the other hand, fought cautiously. He remained on the defensive and only attacked whenever he found openings!
Noticing how cautious his opponent was, Alva snorted, “Boring! Let’s have some fun!”
As the most battle-hungry member of the White family, he could no longer tolerate the stale battle that was taking place!
He jumped out of his tank, and his Heaven-disrupting Tank transformed!
Mechanical sounds continued to ring out, and soon, the tank had turned into a robot that had a cannon attached on its right shoulder!
While standing on the left shoulder, Alva telepathically issued his orders. With that, the robot then unleashed a barrage of shots!
