The Royal Academy entrance exams got stranger and stranger, the first round of testing was to record their cultivation levels and understand their initial data. But when it got to the second round, they were directly allowed to battle.
The trainees of the Thunder Palace were all of the Lightning attributes or dual system attributes mostly, and Lightning users were usually very crafty people as well.
Dongfang Wanyu was brought into a practice room. Inside, a scene looking like a misty forest was shown. Outside the practice room was a jewel-sized mirror, recording everything that happened inside.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t follow her Seventh sister inside and she felt a little frustrated.
As soon as Dongfang Wanyu stepped into the forest, she could feel the strong aura of green grass, which was present in every plant and tree. The spirituality simulation of this room had apparently reached a 1:1 re-creation of a real environment.
“Be careful.” Qing Mo issued a warning.
Fiery lightning suddenly attacked towards her, due to Qing Mo’s timely warning, Dongfang Wanyu managed to dodge it and rolled around on the ground in a messy manner.
Amidst a loud rumbling sound, the place where she was standing before was bombarded into a hole, and the surrounding green grass was also cleanly destroyed.
At this moment, a beast as tall as a wolf came towards her step by step, with each step, the ground shook, it ran towards Dongfang Wanyu in rapid strides, instantly the ground quaked.
“It’s a Silver Fanged Thunder Wolf, you have to be careful.”
Dongfang Wanyu wanted to curse, how could a mock test release a ferocious Silver Fanged Thunder Wolf. It looked like a wolf on the outside, with four feet, silver wolf fur all over, brimming with lightning. The wolf fur stood straight like a hedgehog. It can run on the ground extremely quickly like lightning, and its reactions were extremely fast. Most importantly, it could breathe fire and lightning anytime and anywhere, like a fire and lightning breathing dragon.
Dongfang Wanyu didn’t dare to let it get close to her, as soon as it got close, the barbed lightning might knock her off her feet. Electricity scorched the outside. The key was that the fire laced with lightning spewed out by the other side was so powerful that it would burst open once it landed, and if she was too late to dodge, it would not just be like now, with only her hair being scorched. The hot flames sprayed on her face and gave her a sense of crisis and the illusion of narrowly escaping death.
Such a feeling she only encountered when she was in the Violet Devil Mountain Range, every time she went out for an adventure, it was a fight with her life at stake, and when she encountered beasts stronger than herself and had no way out, she could only fight and walk on the edge of death.
“Very well, you’ve got me thoroughly excited.” Dongfang Wanyu licked her lips, her blood boiling for no apparent reason.
Likewise, the wolf was infuriated by her actions of dodging time and again.
What she didn’t know was that the mock drill was actually set based on one’s combat ability, and the higher one’s talent, the greater the danger one faced.
She was a Spiritual Master with three types of attributes, so the beast she faced was dual-typed, the only dual-typed beast in the entire assessment.
Dongfang Wanyu wasn’t aware of this, her eyes and mind were now thinking about how to destroy this Silver Fanged Thunder Wolf, she attempted a long-range attack, gathering the lightning in her body into the palm of her hand, and while dodging, she turned around and smashed it hard against the Thunder Wolf.
The Thunder Wolf was also an agile beast, and when it sensed Dongfang Wanyu’s killing intent, it also promptly spewed fire laced with lightning thunder towards the lightning.
The fire laced with lightning met the lightning, it was like fire meeting lightning, the two strong forces met and collided, finally exploding with more than ten times the bombardment power, the entire assessment area vibrated.
The original resistance set by the practice room was five times, but the substantial bombardment caused by Dongfang Wanyu was beyond its ability to withstand.
In the blink of an eye, everything was gone.
With a flash of white light, Dongfang Wanyu found herself outside of the practice room.
“Congratulations, you’ve passed the assessment.” The senior brother at the side wiped his sweat, if he hadn’t cut off all simulations in the practice room in time, the assessment area would have become a ruin by now! What was that lightning? The power was actually so strong, ten times stronger than the fire laced with lightning he had simulated.
Dongfang Wanyu was surprised, it was too soon for it to be over, she hadn’t had enough yet. She had just thought of another way to respond to the enemy, she might’ve been able to defeat that Silver Fang Thunder Wolf in the same old way as well without using as much energy.
When she got out she saw Dongfang Minghui squatting on the ground.
“Ninth sister, what are you doing?”
“Counting ants.” As soon as Dongfang Minghui looked up, she saw the Female Protagonist’s smiling face and immediately stood up, “Seventh sister, congratulations on passing your assessment.”
“Is it really okay for you to sneak out like that?” Dongfang Wanyu looked at her in her medicine gardener outfit and guessed.
Dongfang Minghui wrinkled her little nose, “Seventh sister, I’ll immediately leave, you said before that you only needed two hours.”
“This little junior sister, you just passed the assessment, you still have to come over here to sign your name.” A Thunder Palace senior brother immediately rushed over when he saw Dongfang Wanyu.
“Seventh sister, you go ahead do your stuff, I’m leaving.” Dongfang Minghui guessed that Female Protagonist’s test result must be very good,. Just from the second test, she was already basically admitted as a student at the Royal Academy, and someone would make arrangements for her accommodation.
“Well ok, when it’s over, I’ll go and visit you.” Dongfang Wanyu said and followed that senior brother as he stepped into the Hall of Thunder.
She counted the hours and felt that the second round of examinations on the pharmacist’s side was nearing the end as well so she immediately rushed over in a flurry of excitement.
Who would have expected that as soon as she entered the examination area, she would see a red figure, and as she tried to stop, she couldn’t stop in time and bumped into it.
“Which eyeless person.”
Their voices sounded out almost simultaneously, and Dongfang Minghui, being small, was knocked back and fell straight to the ground with a bump on her butt.
But she felt the voice was a bit familiar.
“Which courtyard are you from, don’t you use your eyes when you walk? Quickly apologize to this Miss.” The hot-tempered miss Murong Qingyi angrily kicked Dongfang Minghui.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t dodge, and her ankle hurt, but she felt that the arrogant and domineering girl seemed a bit familiar. Standing up, she thought for a while.
“What are you looking at, if you keep staring do you believe this Miss will smack you to death.” A long whip swished over, but it was gripped by someone before it could reach too far if it wasn’t it would probably be smacking Dongfang Minghui’s face!
Damn, what a familiar scene!
Dongfang Minghui’s mind suddenly flashed with an extremely quick image, another person just as fond as the Female Protagonist of the whip, and she uses it at every turn as well.
Holy shit, isn’t this the girl that tried fighting the Female Protagonist at the store before? Li Yunan had fought her for this, so why did she suddenly show up at the Royal Academy.
“Who are you, daring to grab this girl’s whip?” Murong Qingyi was whipping whoever she saw, she hadn’t seen the form clearly.
Dongfang Minghui looked sideways at her savior, a white and clean looking girl, the girl was dressed in light civilian clothes, she carried a very wide sword behind her back, from the warrior symbol on her clothes, she should be a senior sister from the Warrior Hall. Probably a new student that had not yet had time to get assigned a school uniform.
“It’s wrong for people to bump into you, but you can’t just whip her.” Bai Rou predicted that a whip lashing would have a ninety percent chance of directly destroying Dongfang Minghui’s delicate babyface, she had never seen such a ruthless new trainee so she intervened immediately.
Dongfang Minghui immediately bowed and said, “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it.”
Apologize first, as for the other party wanting to whip herself for this, she would settle the score with her another day.
Murong Qingyi smacked the whip for a while but found the other end of the whip in Bai Rou’s hands wouldn’t move, immediately knowing that she had met an expert, plus Dongfang Minghui’s sincere apology had people around her pointing fingers at her, she had to let her attitude soften but her mouth was still hard, “Let go.”
Bai Ruo loosened her hand quickly, Murong Qingyi stepped a few steps backward, she stared at Dongfang Minghui fiercely before stowing the whip away.
Dongfang Minghui touched her nose, wondering if it’s because she seemed too docile.
“Be more careful in the future.” Although Bai Rou’s face was cold, her tone of voice was gentle.
“I know.” Dongfang Minghui saw that she was leaving and immediately chased after her, “Is Senior Sister a member of the Warrior Hall? May I have your name, please?”
After saying that, the person left.
Dongfang Minghui’s mouth was so shocked and her mouth couldn’t stop blowing up like it was stuffed with eggs as she repeated the name, Bai Rou… Bai Rou! So she was Bai Rou, this girl would team up with the Female Protagonist in the future and was also a fierce general.
Two calamities in one day, Dongfang Minghui felt it was all because she went out and didn’t look at the yellow calendar, had she known what would happen she would have stayed safely in the Angelica Garden.
This bump and disturbance delayed some time, and when she arrived, there were only a few scattered people left in the application area, they all looked like fellow pharmacy faculty members who had come to help as supervisors.
Dongfang Minghui awkwardly ran out from a corner and grabbed a random person and asked, “This senior brother, I would like to ask, is the assessment over?”
The older brother looked at her as he cleaned up, “It’s been almost half an hour since the end, you’re a Medicine Gardener from the Pharmacy right? All of the elixirs borrowed from you guys today have been sent back.”
Dongfang Minghui: “…….”
Now she was really finished, she didn’t even know what excuse to use to go back.
Hesitating and dawdling, Dongfang Minghui couldn’t think of a perfectly reasonable one. Dilly-dallying outside the pharmacy for a while, before she held the idea of facing her death and then bravely rushing in with eyes closed towards the Angelica Garden.
“Ouch my aunt, where on earth have you been running to.” The steward brother was sharp-eyed and immediately moved forward to stop her when he saw her.
“Actually, I just got lost on my way back.” The Royal Academy was huge, and she had asked many people how to get there for that reason.
Dongfang Minghui looked like she’d done something wrong and hung her head low, thinking to herself, just scold me.
“Oh my, big brother Situ has been waiting for you for more than two whole hours and broken several teacups, you should be careful when you go there .”
“Huh?” Wasn’t it Pharmacist Xu who wanted to punish her?
Dongfang Minghui was sent to Situ Hao by the steward senior brother with a confused face.
“Big Brother, Qian Minghui is here.”
As long as she wasn’t facing Pharmacist Xu, Dongfang Minghui could breathe a sigh of relief. When she saw Situ Hao looking gloomy she couldn’t help but mock, “What brings Senior Brother Situ here?”
Situ Hao was unable to laugh or cry, “Little girl you’re quite good at holding grudges, why did you make me wait for you for more than two hours? If the other pharmacists find out that you’re slacking off, you’ll be punished.”
Dongfang Minghui just relied on the fact that he didn’t dare to do anything to her and grinned proudly, “Forget it, adults shouldn’t care about the little people. Come on, tell me, what do you want from me?”
Situ Hao sighed, “I thought about it all night yesterday, and I think you’re right. If it wasn’t for the fact that I don’t understand what Blue Star Dream needs, I wouldn’t have caused it so much pain.”
Dongfang Minghui blinked and connected all the dots, it seems that Situ Hao genuinely cared about Blue Star Dreams.
“I went up to Blue Star Dream’s yard last night and told it I was going to bring it to you, it was so happy, I haven’t felt it act like that in such a long time.” Situ Hao was sad, he was at the very least still the owner, but somehow it turned out he was no match for Dongfang Minghui an outsider.
Just talking about it made him want to cry!
It’s ok Situ, our cute Minghui’s got unbeatable charm after all 😉
