Chapter 28 The Results of a Crushing Defeat! Lynn Became a Baron!
The discussion spread quickly as the nobles who were waiting for their turn all commented on the matter. A few of them thought Lynn would win. The test was progressing at a slow pace, mainly because there was such a large number of people. The test started in the morning and it was already nearing the end of the afternoon. However, Lynn and Linze were finally in the spotlight.
Lynn’s carriage was far more luxurious than Linze’s, as he was a man who had just reached adulthood. Everyone looked at Lynn with amazement. Linze noticed everyone’s sight, and talked to himself in anger.
”When I get first, you all will have to look at me!”
”1579! Linze Kyle, please.”
A man from the Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardry led the horse and brought Linze to the test stone. The stone was massive, about a thousand times larger than the one Lynn had used before. This test stone was very expensive, but it could be used repeatedly. All the major magic colleges had such a large stone.
Linze got out of the cart and walked up to the tester. He put his hands onto it and unleashed his mana into the stone. A blue light brightened the area up and even though it was dotted with spots, it was pretty. In the end, the light converged into a number.
”222,” says the proctor.
”He is going to get first,” the crowd exclaimed.
”So far, only forty people have had more than two hundred mana points, and he has been the highest. Amazingly, the Kyles have found a talented heir. He may be a third order wizard. The Kyle family’s glory will be known for a hundred years.”
After the results came out, Linze wanted to enjoy his attention. However, the proctor quickly reprimanded.
”Do not delay! Selfish people, there is someone else who needs to be tested!”
Linze hurried into his cart to leave, but he had a proud smile on his face.
”Is there anyone else? I am number one anyways.”
“1580. Lynn, you are next!” the proctor shouted.
Lynn had removed Kyle from his name. The carriage was taken to the middle of the square, and he exited out of the vehicle. Many of the girls’ eyes lit up at the sight of him.
”I like his black hair and black eyes. They are like gems.”
”He looks tough. My God, he has to be very strong.”
“And he is handsome! Handsomer than my favorite butler!”
Lynn was dressed in civilian clothes, but his looks made many of the girls cheer him on.
”Place your hands on this,” the proctor said.
Lynn nodded politely and put his hands on the stone. He slowly released his mana and a fiery red light appeared. This was the moment his power would be revealed!
”Oh my God! What is this situation?! Why is this light so bright?!”
”No, you do not think? Is his magic higher than anyone before him?!”
”How could this be?”
In the outcry, the red light quickly converged into a number and 1255 was displayed. Lynn was a little surprised too, as his growth for the past two days seemed a little fast. At this point, Linze’s jaw looked like it was going to fall off. The originally lively square gradually quieted down.
People were so shocked to the extent that they could not even scream. Lucy looked at Lynn with pride. At this time, several old men in robes of the third order quickly came up and held Lynn’s hand.
”Yeah, there is no problem. He is not cheating.”
”Amazing. Did he really start eating magic mushrooms as an adult?”
”His talent is great! I am going to take him as an apprentice! He can be at least a fourth order magician!”
Several of the old men were in good spirits, causing them to talk loudly. The people in the distance heard what they said. A fourth order magician! For someone to become a fourth order, they had to be a count! It was also the highest status as a count! Lynn was this favored by the mentors of the school?! Oh my God! This kind of thing has never happened! Lynn looked at the old man and replied politely.
”There are people waiting to be tested in the back. Let us make way.”
A few of the old men squirmed, and then looked at Lynn with great appreciation,
“Yes, you are right. Let us not influence the others. Let us go, follow us.”
Lynn was led to the side to give way to the next participants. The next proctor came up and continued the test. The participant after Lynn got 140 points. It was a good number, but no one was paying attention to him at the moment. All eyes were on Lynn.
”We are the mentors of the Shelinrano School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Your talent is excellent, so we can break the rules to give you an opportunity to enter the college for five years.”
”What a huge honor!”
”They have the best magic resources here!”
Everyone looked at Lynn with envy. It was harder to get into the academy than to become a lower ranked nobleman! If someone graduated from the college, they would become a powerful imperial wizard! Nobility was at his fingertips.
No more than ten people could be admitted directly in a hundred years, but Lynn got the chance. Linze was standing next to him as he wanted to see the situation, and immediately ran away when he heard the news. After listening to the suggestions, Lynn shook his head.
”Excuse me, distinguished mentors, but allow me to refuse. I have a better way to ascend. All I need is the title of nobility in accordance with the rules.”
Several of the teachers were a little sorry, but they heard Lynn’s determination and did not force him to stay. With Lynn’s incredible mana pool, no one could compare to his score. He had clinched first place, so the results could be announced. A more easygoing mentor stood up and announced the results.
”By the rules, you have earned first place. You are a flame wizard who shall be awarded with the title of Baron. In the name of Shenlinrano. I, the third order wizard Ramill, give you the honor of becoming a Baron along with the reward of ten gold coins. Hereon, you are a nobleman registered in the Holy Empire. Congratulations, Lynn.”
