Chapter 19

Fang Ruoxi glanced at Xu Miantu before ignoring him . She continued looking at Zhou Wen and said, “Zhou Wen, what school do you plan on attending?”

“I haven’t thought about it yet,” Zhou Wen said .

Fang Ruoxi nodded and said, “That’s right . With how capable you are, you can attend any school you wish . There’s no rush . That’s good too . I’ll try my best to complete this test . I hope my results aren’t too far from yours . ”

With that said, Fang Ruoxi waved her hand at Zhou Wen, turned around and left . From beginning to end, she had ignored Xu Miantu .

Xu Miantu was displeased with this treatment, but it wasn’t the right place to flare up . All he did was shoot a glance at Zhou Wen and said to Jiang Hao and Li Xuan, “People from small cities really have limited horizons . What a waste of her good looks, too bad she lacks brains and eyes . ”

Jiang Hao didn’t say a word, but Li Xuan’s interest in Zhou Wen was slightly piqued . He asked Zhou Wen, “I heard that you were once Guide High School’s number one genius . From the looks of it, that’s true . That chick seems to hold you in high regard . ”

“It’s just encouragement between fellow students . She’s excellent herself and no way weaker than me . Placed anywhere, she will be one of a handful of cultivation geniuses,” Zhou Wen said .

Xu Miantu could naturally tell that Zhou Wen was rebutting him . He said in disdain, “If you were really excellent, why would you need us to carry you?”

Li Xuan hadn’t informed Xu Miantu and company about Zhou Wen . All he had said was that he was helping a friend to take a student along with them for the participation of the combat test .

Zhou Wen didn’t defend himself, finding an argument with Xu Miantu beneath him .

Li Xuan cut off Xu Miantu who still hadn’t said his piece . “Enough, cut it out . It’s about time we enter . All of you are to focus . ”

With Li Xuan saying so, all Xu Miantu could do was swallow the words he was about to say . He gave Zhou Wen a pissed look .

The examiners were already verifying the students’ candidacies . With four people a team, they each brought their candidature passes to a verification machine . They gathered their fingerprints, scanned their passes, and checked the items on them . Only when they were confirmed to be the candidate in question and that they hadn’t brought any item that aided in cheating, were they allowed entry into the ancient city .

Most of the students weren’t nervous . Instead, it was the family who came with them who were almost fainting while standing beyond the warning line . They watched helplessly as the students entered the ancient city, some almost having a cardiac arrest .

Zhou Wen and his team lined up to go through the inspection, passing through a secured passage, before arriving in front of the ancient city .

The gates to the ancient city had already opened, but everything inside seemed to be a blurry mist . There was no way to discern the interior .

Guarding the ancient city’s gates, the soldiers who were armed to the teeth urged, “Stop looking and enter quickly . There are plenty of people lining up behind you . ”

Zhou Wen followed Li Xuan and company to walk towards the ancient city’s gates . With the trio walking into the ancient city, he followed closely behind them . However, when they passed through the gates, he realized he couldn’t see them .

He hurriedly walked through the blurry gates and felt a strange giddiness overwhelm him as he got goosebumps all over him .

But with just one step, the scene before Zhou Wen’s eyes opened up . The mist inside the ancient city was gone . He could clearly see the stone-paved streets and ancient buildings with blue tiles and red walls lining the streets . Li Xuan and the other two were right in front, just a few steps away from him .

Those scientists have theorized that the dimensional zones are equivalent to another spatial dimension . It does seem to make sense from the looks of it .

After most students had entered, they curiously sized up the ancient city just like Zhou Wen .

Although they had watched some of the footage inside Guide Ancient City from the school’s video material, to truly step in here gave them a different feeling . The antiquity and feeling that seemed to span the entire gamut of human experiences were things that video footage couldn’t capture .

The examiner gathered the batch of candidates and mentioned a few key things to take note of . When that was done, the combat test officially began .

All the students who participated in the test rushed for the ancient city’s streets and alleys, hoping to kill the most number of Skeleton Soldiers to obtain a better result .

Of course, there were people who had the hope that a few dimensional crystals would drop during the test . That would make things even better .

The Earth League had made it clear that any dimensional crystals that dropped during the combat test were the property of the students themselves .

However, the examiner had also made it clear that the student was to be responsible for whatever happened during the test .

According to the League’s laws, after reaching the age of sixteen, one could freely choose to take the combat test . The responsibility was theirs to undertake . Even if death was to occur, the League wouldn’t provide a single cent of compensation .

Compared to the other subjects in the college entrance exams, only a few hundred students from the city actually participated in the combat test . Inside the transformed ancient city, they appeared inconspicuous .

Zhou Wen and Li Xuan headed deep into the ancient city . In the beginning, there were plenty of students, so the Skeleton Soldiers that appeared weren’t enough for them to kill . Li Xuan and company didn’t intend to snatch the mobs with the other students, so they circled around the battlefields and ventured deep into the ancient city .

Xu Miantu and Jiang Hao took point and every Skeleton Soldier they encountered was taken down with one strike . Mobs of Skeleton Soldiers were nothing worth mentioning due to the huge disparity in strength .

Amidst the skeleton of the Skeleton Soldiers, there was a bone the size of a rice grain . Each Skeleton Soldier only had one of those, and one’s score in the combat test was determined by the number of bones that had been gathered .

However, the number of bones could only determine a team’s ranking . The ranking within the team was determined by the number of dimensional crystals .

Perhaps it was a coincidence, but the direction the quartet was heading in happened to be the one Zhou Wen had attempted while in-game . As they stormed their way through the ancient city, all the scenery was identical to the one in-game .

It wasn’t only the ancient buildings in the ancient city . Even the number of Skeleton Soldiers that appeared was identical to the game .

Does this mean that we will be meeting that fellow on the skeleton horse? However, Zhou Wen quickly had another idea . That area had exceeded the confines of the test, so it was unlikely Li Xuan and company would risk entering .

But things exceeded his expectations . Xu Miantu and company stormed their way through without stopping when they reached the boundary of the test . They went straight out of the test’s boundaries .

“Li Xuan, we have already left the test boundaries . Should we be heading back?” Zhou Wen said to Li Xuan .

Before Li Xuan said a word, Xu Miantu said in contempt, “The area of the test is so tiny . The number of Skeleton Soldiers is extremely limited . Even if we could get all of them, how many can we get? If you’re afraid, just wait here until we return . There’s no need for you to follow us in . ”

Li Xuan also said with a smile . “Don’t worry . We have the complete information of Guide Ancient City . All we will encounter for the next ten to fifteen kilometers are Skeleton Soldiers . There won’t be any Legendary stage dimensional creatures appearing . The test’s area is rather conservative because they do not wish for students to get into accidents . Just as Miantu said, with that small number of Skeleton Soldiers in the test area, it’s not enough for us to get a high score . It’s almost necessary that we continue forward . ”
