Hexi and Wei Chengyuan went to see the screening results, and Tong Bing naturally followed suit.
Before the 3 of them walked into the bulletin board, they heard a wailing sound from the crowd.
“How come?! So many people signed up, and in the end less than a hundred people were admitted?! This is only the first round! Isn’t it too harsh?”
“I… I’m a single mutated spiritual root of earth, how could I be screened out?!”
“Cheh, the first round of screening does not only look at spiritual root qualifications, but also your muscles, bones, cultivation, and potential. No matter how good your qualifications are, if your cultivation base is not enough and your potential is too bad, of course you will be screened out.”
“Eh, I heard that last year’s assessment, only 8 people were admitted at the end. There were nearly a thousand people who applied for the assessment at that time! How many of these 96 people will be able to stay in the end!”
When the trio squeezed into the crowd and glanced, not surprisingly, Hexi saw her name – Xi Yue at the end of the list.
Wei Chengyuan’s name was 6th from the top.
As soon as he saw it, he bit the weed and smiled, “I actually only ranked 6th in the spiritual root qualification test. Tsk tsk, who is in front of me!”
Suddenly, someone exclaimed, “How come there are people of the Foundation Establishment Stage on the list!”
“That’s right! Didn’t it mean that it’s not just about the assessment of spiritual root? If you count the cultivation base, how can the people of the Foundation Establishment stage be on the list?”
“I remember that there hasn’t been a Foundation Establishment Stage martial artist in the first round of screening for decades right?”
“Is this person a relative of the academy master? Is he cheating?”
The crowd suddenly burst commotion, especially many people who failed were filled with outrage. They wanted an explanation from the academy.
Because there was too much noise, a boy in green clothes slowly walked out of the hut, glanced around with a fierce gaze and said coldly, “Xi Yue, dual sky spiritual root of water and fire. His bone and meridians are 17 years old. The peak of the Foundation Establishment Stage. Her selection is beyond doubt. If you have any objections, I don’t mind reporting it to the upper level of the academy…”
The boy in green clothes paused and continued, “Since you are so dissatisfied with the academy’s verdict, then you should not participate in the academy’s assessment anymore.”
As soon as this remark came out, the audience fell into a weird silence; no one dared to say more.
Seeing that there was no objection, the boy in green clothes said indifferently, “All the candidates who fail the screening, please return your inscribed jade slip into the spiritual root inspection hut. We will register your information. If you want to participate again in the assessment next year, you don’t need to provide a recommendation letter.”
After speaking, the boy in green clothes just walked into the hut.
After the crowd was silent for a while, someone suddenly murmured to break the calm, “Xi Yue… Xi Yue? Why is this name so familiar? Could… could it be the young master of the Shengde Hall?”
“Shengde Hall? Is the Shengde Hall that sells the best quality pills? If it is him, then it’s no wonder he can be so powerful!”
“I heard that some of the best quality pills sold by Shengde Hall can increase one’s cultivation in a short period of time, and even improve their aptitude! He must have taken those medicinal pills, that’s why he is so powerful right?”
“Hmph, so what if he took the medicinal pills, with the Foundation Establishment Stage, he will definitely die miserably when he enters the second or third rounds of assessment!”
At this time, Wei Chengyuan’s surprised gaze fell on Hexi. He said after a long while, “So you are Xi Yue?”
