"Ive Lost!" Edmond said with a sigh as my rapier gently touched his steel armor, producing the metallic sound.
"It was a good battle," I said with a smile that got a mirthless smile on his face, "Thank You for entertaining me and not outright crushing me; fighting against was quite an experience," He said and flew down from the Arena.
"Micheal Zaar Winner,"
A voice rang through the whole area, and as it did, a loud cheer comes from the audience. The crowd is very intimidating, especially when it is directed at me. Still, despite being intimidated, I maintained a smile on my face and flew off the ring.
A minute later, I opened the door of the box and went in. There is a huge waiting room for the participants, but barely anyone uses it; most prefer to sit in the reserved boxes of their Organisation.
The participants only sit together when they reached the Top 100. There is a special section allocated to participants in the most visible area of the Arena where every person in the Arena could see you.

Still, I did not regret revealing a little bit of my strength; what I had is a drop compared to what I have when I wore my Armor.
"Ok, Professor," I said, and I agree. Even though I have full confidence in my abilities, it would be good for me to hide them from my opponent; the less they know, the greater benefits I will receive during the fight.
