The Conqueror’s Haki is something that can instill fear in any being. It’s the disposition of a king forming a force that can intimidate all beings.
Whoever is exposed to that force would fall unconscious if his own will is weak.
And at this moment, Allan gained such power.
Haki is divided into three levels, namely, Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. With each level, the requirement for his mental and physical power will increase.
Right now, Allan’s Conqueror’s Haki was merely Novice level, so he can’t control it at all. He can’t use it on a single target for the time being.
But he wasn’t disappointed at all, since he knew only with when it reaches higher levels can his will control it.
As long as he grows physically and mentally, Allan would be able to master the Conqueror’s Haki gradually.
His current goal is to complete the Hunter Exam.
Allan looked back at the tunnel and sat down cross-legged. He turned two-thirds of the stairs into ice, which doubled the difficulty for the candidates.
The next phase of the exam is passing through Milsy Wetlands.
Many rare birds and exotic animals live in this forest; it was also known as the Swindler’s Swamp because half of its creatures are cunning and greedy by nature.
Like the Man-faced Ape, Noggin Lugging Tortoise, Frog-In-Waiting, Hypnosis Butterfly, Ruse Raven, Claymore Mushroom…
Most of these animals use illusion and traps to get their prey, and that’s the reason why this place is called the Swindler’s Swamp.
Once you step into this forest, there is a high chance that you will be tricked.
And to reach the second test, the candidates need to pass through this forest.
Although Allan knew about this, he wasn’t familiar with the road, so he could only wait for the time being for the others to get here.
At this time, someone said from afar: “Hey, come here.”
Allan looked at the man walking out of the forest.
“Who are you?” Allan asked.
Then, his brows frowned unconsciously.
The man replied: “I’m the guide responsible for leading the Candidates through the forest.”
Allan looked at him suspiciously.
“Don’t stand there in a daze. I will take you to the next Exam Venue.”
“What about the other candidates? Don’t you need to wait for them?”
“It doesn’t matter. I will leave a way for them to track us and pass the test. You’re the first person to arrive here, so I will personally lead you there.”
Allan pondered a little as he heads this, then he smiled: “Then I will trouble you, Guide-san.”
“Don’t mention it. It’s my job.” The Guide said and walked toward the forest.
Allan looked around and sneered before the following.
After entering the forest, the surrounding quietened as if danger was approaching.
Allan followed the Guide before stopping abruptly.
“What’s wrong?” The Guide turned his head and asked Allan. Allan looked back: “Guide-san, shouldn’t we take the road? Why should we pass through the forest? Did you do this on purpose to lead me into the grove and then do me in?”
The Guide suddenly panicked and instantly explaining: “Walking into the forest is faster, and there are no obstacles here.”
“Is there really no obstacle?”
The Guide’s face darkened, hearing Allan’s question.
“What do you mean by your question? Do you doubt my identity?”
“That’s it.” Allan replied as if he already knew everything, which he indeed did and said: “That’s the end of this trick, Guide-san. Ah, that’s wrong, you’re not even the Guide.”
“Since I was discovered, I will kill you first.”
Suddenly, the Guide’s face started changing. His face became hairy, his teeth sharpened, and his stature became larger.
In a blink of an eye, he turned into an ape-like animal.
Allan sneered, seeing this: “It’s really a disguise, you’re a Man-faced Ape?”
The Man-faced Apes are dangerous creatures living in the Milsy Wetlands. They can imitate anything about a person, be it his appearance or his behavior.
Although they are like this, they can’t deal with humans without traps, and that’s what this ape was currently doing.
Allan realized this so-called Guide was a Man-Faced Ape as soon as it came out. He wanted to see what it wanted, so he pretended that he didn’t know its tricks.
Seeing the ape revealing himself, Allan directly used his Observation Haki and discovered that lurking around them. There were lots of apes.
“Come out. We can share this human.”
As he said this, more than a dozen Man-Faced Ape immediately rushed out and surrounded Allan.
