The second part of what Ivan said stunned all the students.
The winner could get to see the manual?
The manual was something so mysterious, so only a big shot like Ethan would be qualified to possess and view such a thing, right?
But now they had a chance too.
“Elder Tanner, is Mr. Hunt joking with us?”
“Not at all,” replied Elder Tanner. “You guys help me to take charge of this matter and send word out, then make preparations.”
Then he turned and was about to walk off.
“Wait!” Evan immediately called out to him. “What did you just say?”
“Ethan wants to allow others to view the manual? Is he nuts?!”
Others might not know what significance that manual had, but Evan knew.
So many people dreamt of owning these pages, but Ethan was just going to let others see the pages like that?
How could he do that?!
These pages weren’t even his!
“I don’t know whether he’s nuts or not, but I’m sure this news will drive a large group of people nuts,” replied Ivan calmly.
The moment he said this, Evan immediately disappeared. He ran all the way to the office like a lion that had gone mad.
“See, that’s our first nutcase,” said Ivan with a gleeful smile.
Evan kicked the office door open.
“Ethan!” he roared loudly. He pointed a finger at Ethan who was drinking tea and shouted angrily, “What are you trying to do?”
Ethan glanced at him but didn’t bother about him.
“The Extreme Fist Technique Manual isn’t something you can let others see just because you want to!” Evan roared. “Those common folk aren’t fit to even look upon something so highly classified!”
Ethan continued to ignore him.
Evan was really angry now.
“I think you’re really a lunatic!” Evan shouted as he suddenly dashed across. His punch made an explosive sound and his joints crackled loudly!
This punch was headed straight for Ethan’s head because he wanted to just smash Ethan’s head to mush right now!
Ethan sat there without moving. He just stretched one hand out and easily blocked Evan’s oncoming fist. His finger suddenly poked the bottom of Evan’s wrist.
“AHH!” Evan immediately yelped and staggered back.
“This door isn’t very cheap you know? Do you have money to pay for it?”
Ethan turned to look at Evan. “If you don’t have money, then you can continue working for the academy. I’ll pay you according to the market rates.”
“I’m asking you about the manual…”
“I don’t need others to teach me what to do. Not especially someone who’s lost to me.”
Ethan refused to let Evan finish his sentence.
Evan’s face was all red from anger.
He couldn’t stand Ethan but couldn’t do anything about him either. This feeling really made him nearly explode inside.
He took a deep breath.
“Don’t say that I didn’t warn you. You’re playing with fire!” Evan said coldly, “To many people, this manual is an item that should be kept a secret! By allowing others to see it, it’s as good as allowing yourself to get killed!”
Ethan casually glanced at him.
“Is it your so-called reclusive clan of martial artists, the Drake family, or someone else?”
When Ethan said these words, Evan trembled slightly and there was a change in his gaze.
He had never told anybody about his origins.
And he had never said that the Drake family he was from was that reclusive clan of martial artists!
“You…” Evan was stunned as he looked at Ethan with shock written all over his face. “How did you know?”
He felt like his heart was going to leap out of his mouth.
Ethan actually knew where he had come from.
“I don’t care if it’s your Drake family or anybody else. This supposedly classified item is really no big deal to me.”
Ethan ignored Evan’s question and emphasized on these words, “I want to reveal these pages. If anyone has any opinions, they can come and talk to me about it.”
