High Martial Arts: Logging 10,000 Years Into The Future - Chapter 61
Chapter 61 — The Rumored Fourth Person!
“Normal geniuses aren’t much. Only geniuses who have awakened their talents are considered true geniuses. Even if they are Gifted Martial Artists, most of them did not pass the assessment. There are only three of them. It is said that there is another person who cleared it, but I’m guessing that it is fake …” Yang Yuan jabbered on and on.
Lu Sheng casually asked her, “Why do you say that the rumored fourth person is fake?”
Yang Yuan laughed, “Because the fourth person is too exaggerated. Some people said that the fourth person who cleared the assessment was terrifyingly strong. Not only did he destroy a bunch of Level 2 Mechanical Puppets, he even beat up the examiner in the passageway. How is that possible?
“The examiner is a genuine Level 3 Martial Artist. Moreover, he is someone who is outstanding in all aspects. If you want to beat the examiner, you need to be at least a Level 4 Martial Artist. And becoming a Level 4 Martial Artist at our age?”
Yang Yuan shook her head and concluded, “It all sounds made up. Bunch of nonsense.”
Lu Sheng did not say anything and just continued to eat silently.
Suddenly, Yang Yuan thought of something and could not hold back her curiosity. She asked Lu Sheng, “Oh right, Lu Sheng, you are the strongest among us. You are a Level 2 Martial Artist and you are also a Gifted Martial Artist. Did you clear the assessment?”
When Yang Yuan asked this question, the students Baihe City sitting nearby all turned their heads to look at them. Although they did not join in the conversation, they were actually keenly listening to them.
Now that it involved the question they were most curious about, they naturally could not help but turn their heads.
“Uh …” Lu Sheng stopped what he was doing and did not know how to answer. He wanted to say that he was the person Yang Yuan was talking about, but they might not believe him.
It did not seem good to not tell the truth.
When they saw Lu Sheng’s hesitant expression, Yang Yuan and others had a change in thought.
They concluded that he probably did not clear it, and he was embarrassed to answer.
Actually, it was normal.
The more talented a person was, the more arrogant they would be. After realizing that they were not as good as others, they would feel even more disappointed.
Yang Yuan was already like this, let alone Lu Sheng, who was much more talented than her, a martial arts genius known by everyone in Baihe City, and a celebrity.
Thinking of this, Yang Yuan quickly comforted him, “Actually, it’s normal that you didn’t clear it. The assessment is so crazy. How could ordinary people clear …”
Just as they were talking, a man who looked like an officer suddenly walked into the mess with a few soldiers. After looking around, he walked straight towards Lu Sheng.
Everyone looked at them curiously, not knowing what they were here for.
“… I believe in your strength. If you stay in the training camp for a while, you might not be any weaker than Cao Yong and the others …” Yang Yuan was painstakingly comforting Lu Sheng, completely unaware that a few people had already walked up to her.
A girl sitting next to Yang Yuan couldn’t help but tug at her sleeve.
Yang Yuan seemed to have woken up from a dream. She raised her head and saw several military uniforms facing her.
Yang Yuan was a little confused.
However, these people were obviously not here for her.
The leading officer faced Lu Sheng, who had been silently accepting Yang Yuan’s “comfort”, and said with a serious expression, “Student Lu Sheng, right? Due to the fact that you destroyed 18 Level 2 Mechanical Puppets in our base during the camp entrance examination, and also injured a first lieutenant to the point of being unconscious and hospitalized him … we’re going to have to ask you some routine questions. Please cooperate with us.”
“… Please follow us.” The commanding officer’s deep voice echoed in the huge mess hall.
The originally noisy mess instantly quieted down. It fell into a strange silence. The students who were eating all froze. Their expressions froze, and their bodies froze.
Some of them even maintained the posture of eating with their mouths wide open.
Now, all of them were frozen.
Each one of them seemed to have been hit by a Body Immobilization Spell.
As for Yang Yuan and the other Baihe City students who were sitting opposite Lu Sheng, their expressions were even more exaggerated.
Yang Yuan’s face was blank as she stood rooted to the ground. It was as if ten thousand planes had flown past her mind.
Destroyed 18 Level 2 Mechanical Puppets … Injured a first lieutenant to the point of being unconscious and hospitalized … The rumors were true!
The fourth person in the rumors that she had judged to be nonsense really existed!
And it was Lu Sheng!
Then why did she keep comforting Lu Sheng …
Yang Yuan was completely dumbfounded. She didn’t know what words to use to describe her current feelings. She only felt like she was dreaming.
Everything that had just happened felt surreal.
Lu Sheng stood up straightforwardly. He lowered his head and looked at the plate on the table. He said, “But I’m not full yet. Can you let me pack another portion?”
“Sure.” The commanding officer nodded and agreed. “We’ll get someone to pack another portion for you and send it to your dorm.”
“Then let’s go.” Lu Sheng nodded in satisfaction.
Then, he nodded and greeted the petrified Baihe City students before following the commanding officer out of the canteen.
After Lu Sheng and the others left the canteen.
The spell seemed to have been lifted.
The quiet canteen was instantly filled with intense exclamations and discussions.
“Fuck! Fuck! The rumors were actually true! Someone really destroyed more than 10 mechanical puppets, and even sent the examiner to the hospital!”
“The rumored fourth person, Baihe City’s Lu Sheng … Hiss!”
“What a monster! Simply perverse!”
As for Yang Yuan and the other Baihe City students, they were so shocked that they couldn’t utter a single word.
