After walking for a few minutes they arrive in front of a carriage. The carriage is medium-sized; But big enough to fit four people. The carriage is run by two horses.
"Let's get in!" Kento says with an excited voice.
They reach the 'Paradise of Madagascar' after two hours of traveling by carriage.
Paradise of Madagascar is a place situated inside of Aiokibara. This place is famous around the world for having one of the biggest 'Coliseum' in the world. People know it as 'Gizza'.
As they come closer to Gizza a giant building came into their view. It looks like a colosole compared to humans. The arena looks like a Greekish coliseum arena with this world mixture. Beast and human statues guard the entrance in each respective direction. As they follow the entrance they can see a large ground flatten to make a suitable ground for fighting. The fighting ground is around forty meters per radius. Outside the entrance, there are some counters. People can register to fight in the entrance examination.
"Woah, There are more people than I expected!" Takagi says.
"Yeah, there are a lot of people here!" Kento says with an amazed expression
"Where do we register for the exam?" Roy says while looking around.
"Let's look around and explore this place." Kento suggests.
"Yeah!" Takagi agrees with Kento.
They start walking around the Coliseum.
As they are walking, they come across different food stalls.
"Let's ask one of the stall owners" Kento suggests.
Takagi and Kento start to walk in the direction of the stalls but Roy follows them from behind with silence. For some reason, he is feeling a bit uneasy. From time to time he feels his chest getting stabbed by a sharp object; although no visible wound is seen.
They go near the closest food stall.
"How may I help, sir? Do you need food, sir?"
Kento says while shaking his head, "No, we don't need food. Can you please tell us where the registration office is?"
That food stall owner points his finger to their right and says, "The registration area is that way."
"Thank you." Kento says with a smile.
"Is this your first visit here?" The food stall owner asks.
"Yes. But do people come here often." Kento replies
"Yes, a lot of people do. Because they want to try their luck again the second time when they fail their first attempt at becoming a Knight."
"Oh." Kento exclaims with a surprised look
"You can take the Knight Entrance Exam twice?" Takagi says from behind.
"You can take it as many times as you want." The food stall owner explains.
"Well anyway, thank you for your help." Kento says to the food stall owner.
"You are most welcome." The food stall owner says with a smile.
Roy, Takagi, and Kento walk towards the registration office.
"Hmm? Is this the line for registering?" Takagi asks.
"Yeah, seems like it." Kento replies.
Roy, Takagi, and Kento stand in the line. The line is pretty big. At least fifty people are standing in the line.
After half an hour of waiting in line, their turn finally comes. Roy is the last to register among Takagi and Kento.
"Please fill out this form." The Registration Attendant gives Roy a Piece of paper. In the piece of paper:
[Registration Form for Rookies]
Special Trait (Your Magic/Ability/Skills):
"Here." Roy says politely while giving the form back to the registration attendance.
"Your S.No is 269. Oh, you are the last one to register."
"Thanks" Roy says and leaves.
After a few minutes, all of their registration is complete.
"Hey Kento, what's your number?" Takagi asks with a curious look.
Kento replies, "267"
Kento then asks Takagi, "Yours?"
"It's 268" Takagi replies
Kento looks at Roy and asks the same question.
"Mine is 269" Roy replies to Kento
"Everyone, please come inside of the coliseum. I repeat, please come inside of the coliseum"
Every participant starts to gather inside the coliseum.
Nine people can be seen sitting on 'grand chairs' in a stage-like platform on the second layer of the coliseum.
In the opposite direction of these people, a 'VIP' room is seen. Inside this VIP room, several people are sitting on sofas.
Every participant starts chattering with one another.
All of a sudden a General stands up and comes close to the edge of the stage-like platform. He is gazing down at the participants.
His eyes reflect a crescent moon pattern. He is wearing a yukata along with light armor. He looks omnipotent by the aura he gives off.
Everyone's attention diverts toward him.
"I am a General Knight. If you are scared or not prepared then get out."
Everyone starts looking around to see if anyone would get out but no one is leaving.
"Well then. Let's start the test" Immediately after he said that the air starts to change. The atmosphere starts to get heavy!
"What is this pressure?!" Roy says with a surprised look
"What's happening?!" Takagi says
A guy standing next to Roy suddenly falls to the ground
"My body feels so heavy!" Roy says
"Yeah, and the pressure is increasing too!" Kento says while looking at the ground
"I can't even look up." Takagi says
Ten minutes have passed; the pressure stops.
"Excellent. Congratulations to those who are still standing. You guys pass test one." The General says.
Everyone starts breathing heavily while looking towards the stage.
"And those who have fallen failed!"
Everyone becomes speechless.
"This is not fair." A guy shouts
The General looks at him with killing intent. The guy freeze's in place.
"I make the rules here." The General says with a toneless voice
"Now get out." The General says.
Roughly ten minutes have passed. Everyone who failed left the place.
"Before moving on to the second test, Let me introduce myself. I am a General rank knight, the name is Egao Kira." Kira says with a smile
