Going through the same procedure as Lu Peng, I was able to reactivate the door of the examination room, and as I stepped in, I felt as though I'd been teleported to a different world entirely.
About me was a garden with lots of peculiar flowers with a brushing smell of vitality from it.
Looking around me, I realised that there were no houses or buildings whatsoever. The only thing that stood was a grand wall designed with all types of carvings. My eyes lit up, immediately.
“So this is the Wall of Puzzlement!”
It had a nourishing aura coming from it that made one engulfed in a feeling of warmth. I was able to quickly put aside all the previous activities that replayed in my mind.
Stepping forward, I observed the wall, and read out the first line of words on it.
“In a world of distrust, who is your closest kin?”
I shook my head in disbelief. Just what kind o
Surprisingly, the previous hostile crowd had turned into a complete set of different people entirely. The only thing I could read from their eyes was reverence. It was as if they'd gone through a process of bowdlerization. “Success!” the mechanical voice from the door of the examination announced. ‘Oh là là !’ ‘Now that's what I'm talking about, baby!’ Stepping out, I felt like a superstar. I raised my head up and looked at the numbers floating across the door. 100 points! Still, as a genius, I couldn't just start crazing over a mere score... I had to add some vibes and play expert. Before I could even say a word, everyone began to steer clear, as though I was some demon. Tracing their perplexed gazes, I realised it was due to my new pet that they shrunk in fear. Smiling, I turned to it and asked telepathically, “Do you have a name
Two days had already passed since I left the Beast Hall. Hence, I'd been able to achieve an in-depth knowledge in the Way of Beast Taming after having refined the knowledge I'd acquired of beast taming from the Beast Hall's Book Collection Vault, through constantly going through the library of informations in my head. Roy no longer shared a room with me. Uncle Ramsey had finally prepared a room specially for savage beasts, as he'd promised me he would. This also goes to say that my new savage beast, Little Wolfy, did not lack an accommodation as well. When I got back from the Beast Hall two days ago, and relayed the news of me beating those princesses to a duel and officially becoming a beast tamer, the whole house was struck dumb. Still, it only added to my “prowess” — well, as a genius, I can't really help it. About those two maids the other day, I'd finally been able to cremate my hypothesis. With the Eye of Insigh
“Yes, yes. As you know already, Dorothy, the Junior Academy of the Gifted opens once, every decade! Unlike most academies, they pick out just the best amongst the best of geniuses. It's every cultivator's dream to be able to walk the ground of the JAG. “The founder of this great academy is also the founder of the two most popular academies in the Phantom Dynasty, namely the Intermediate Academy of the Gifted of the Dwindling Mountains, and, finally, the Pinnacle Academy of the Gifted of the Magnificent Spirits!” As the Acorn Master spoke, one could feel deep reverence in his voice for those great academies, there was a kind of unfathomable warmth. My interests were piqued. “Is there a fee to be paid or something, to get enrolled?” It was a fact that great academies of these calibers tended to be extremely expensive. It's just like schools like Kings College and Queens College — they were
It was supposed to be a secret. Teacher Kira warned be the previous day. No one must know that I possess the Royal Euphenic Blood. “The knowledge of your unique constitution will only draw unnecessary complications, which may bring you lots of problem. Don't tell anyone... don't ever forget this!” Remembering those very words, my heart thumped a bit. ‘Dorothy mustn't suspect anything at all,’ I said to myself. There in the beautiful, colourful garden, Dorothy and I were still contemplating our own thoughts. In a crystal ball floating in the air, there was a little, gaseous being hiding within. As I looked at Dorothy about to speak on her final conjecture of what she thought to be the reason for whatever was within the crystal ball to be so scared, I quickly came in-between her words. “Let's just look at what it is.” Dorothy shook
The next morning, I woke up with a big stretch and yawn. “Yet another boring day,” I muttered to myself. “All one ever does is study and cultivate! How does this world still even exist?!” Pushing the bedclothes off me, I dashed to Dorothy's door, giving it three heavy pangs with the side of my folded fingers. ‘Boom boom boom!’ “The heck men...” came the response. “I'm cultivating here!” “That's the point!” I hollaed. “What's the point?” the other party groaned. “I came here for the holiday, not to swap into a boarding school!” “Pff.” There was a moment of silence after that, until... the door screeched open, revealing a red-eyed teenager who looked like she'd been awake since the creation of the world, not blinking for a second. “What do you want, coz?&r
As I listened on, I got to understand that the gray-robed senior, Sun Xao, was an ascetic, and hence, many people knew next to nothing about him. He was one of those guys you wouldn't want to mistakenly step on, despite how tranquil they looked. Just like Bai Xun, Senior Sun was also fanned by lots of people in the Martial Arts School. The tension and pressure from the sparring ground was hot, despite the battle barely even starting. Cold sweat ran down the backs of the audience. As Sun Xao unsheathed his sword, there was a sudden roar of a dragon from his blades. It was more than clear that the fellow was born and raised in swordsmanship. Raising his sword up, Sun Xao drew out a fine sword essence from the tip of his blade which led everyone to shudder. It couldn't be said any louder just how sharp that blade was. It was clear for all to see. Sun Xao drove his spiritual energy in coalition with his sword essence,
“Does any one of you have the ability to fly? Please save Senior Bai before he looses his life by dying from such altitude!” one of Bai Xun's fans exclaimed at the flying Senior Bai. Dorothy immediately dashed into the air. It was only then that I realised that she was still at Transient Mortal realm pinnacle stage, a whole realm below me. “Tsk, tsk.” I clicked my tongue in disappointment. While I was still ruminating over my own thoughts, Dorothy had already covered the distance in no time. She displayed her thaumaturgy ability by making her spiritual essence visibly pump out of her body, overshadowing Bai Xun into something one could likened to a “force field”. After balancing the latter into the barrier, Dorothy flew down with him floating beside her. Everyone gave way as Dorothy landed. The elder from before, stepped forward and thanked her, before turning to look at
The D-Day had finally arrived. After proper paying of respects to my uncle before departure, my savage beasts and I headed for the Beast Hall where I was to meet with the Acorn Master. Dorothy, on the other hand, had gone directly to the Thaumaturgy Hall for her departure. It was easy for me to pack my stuffs due to the great advantage of my storage ring. In no time, I arrived the Beast Hall. Unlike what I was expecting, today was quite “overpopulated”. People streamed in with all sorts of savage beasts the world has ever known. Thankfully, although it was crowded with people, it wasn't disorganised. There was a name system carried out, wherefore, one enters the main hall after one's name has been called. Immediately I arrived, I was shocked to hear my name. “Phew, I don't have to wait all day,” I muttered under my breath in ecstacy and relief. Stepping in, I rec
