Ludwig muttered as if savoring the meaning of Laurie’s words.
”Let’s put this aside. I‘ll take you to the harshest place. That may be our destination soon,” Laurie said at this time, and Ludwig nodded.
“Uh, why don’t you let go of me first? It’s been a while now.” Ludwig could not help mumbling at this time.
Laurie was startled before she realized that she had been holding Ludwig’s arm.
Hearing Ludwig’s words, Laurie’s face turned red instantly, and she quickly let go of Ludwig’s hand.
Ludwig was taken aback and wanted to slap himself.
Damn it, why did he allow his mouth to run wild?
Was it not good to hold hands with a beautiful woman?
“Ahem, um, you can grab it now. I simply felt an itch just now.” Ludwig chuckled, and Laurie was briefly speechless.
“Creep!” Laurie muttered and walked away, ignoring him, and Ludwig quickly chased after her.
Soon, they arrived at a rather strange place. It was a large courtyard full of magic circles. Many people crowded around watching something.
“This is a place for training. It allows participants to get familiar with the venue before the competition starts, so anyone can choose a venue and observe at random,” Laurie explained.
Ludwig nodded. This was quite considerate. Of course, if Ludwig did not know the things mentioned during the earlier conversation, he would think this place was more for demonstration.
Anyone who bowed down and obeyed would not suffer. Otherwise, survival was not guaranteed!
Ludwig did not comment on this and started queuing up with Laurie.
Very soon, it was their turn.
“Which level do you plan to go to?” An old man making records with a pen and paper asked at this moment.
“The most difficult one,” Laurie said without thinking.
The old man was stunned, and the pen in his hand stopped.
“You want to go to the Devil’s Courtyard? Kids, that’s not a good place. Why do you want to go there? I don’t think you’d be so unlucky to be given that place!” the old man could not help saying.
”l’m just curious about the level of difficulty of the Heroes Conference this time. I hope you can grant our wish,” Laurie said.
The old man shook his head helplessly and jotted it on the paper.
After asking Ludwig and Laurie for their names, the old man instructed his people to activate the magic circle.
Ludwig and Laurie then walked into the magic circle, which exploded with a bloodthirsty vibe in the next second. In addition, many phantom skeletons appeared in the air. They had pale teeth and a gloomy aura. Although they were projections, many onlookers got a fright.
“So this is the Devil’s Courtyard, rumored to be the most difficult venue of the Heroes Conference?”
“Whoa, I can already feel the chills up my spine just looking at it from a distance! I can’t expect what the real thing will be like!”
“Is there something wrong with these two people? Why did they choose to go there? Are they so bored that they want to look for some excitement?”
