47 Brutal Selection Process

There was a total of nine people. After everyone finished reporting, they all consciously stood up straight.

“First year…”

The military officer’s eyes fell on Su Bai, who was the last to report. He squinted his eyes in surprise.

He muttered in his heart that this year’s newcomers were amazing.

“I’m Li Xin, a D-rank officer. I’m your guide!”

There were a total of five military ranks. The lowest was E, followed by D, C, B, and A.

Li Xin was a soldier who had just advanced from ordinary rank.

“I’ll lead you guys to the youth training camp, but whether you can make it or not, you’re on your own.”

“Get in the truck now!”

After that, he turned around and returned to the front passenger seat.

As for the students, they looked at each other and got into the back of the truck.

Everyone’s goal was the military youth training camp.

Hence, they had done some research and know that the selection they had gone through before was only the first trial.

There was a second selection process before entering the youth training camp officially!

No one knew when it had started, or perhaps it could be said that the selection had already begun.

Therefore, the atmosphere in the truck was a little subtle.

It was so quiet that even the sound of breathing could be heard clearly.

The condition inside the truck was not good. The surface was covered with foul-smelling mud, which was nauseating.

The sight of it drove Liu Yiyi mad.

She was a clean freak.

However, she could only endure it.

Su Bai sat aside and waited patiently for their destination.

Soon, the truck started to shake. They must have left Los Monstaria and were heading out of the city.

About half an hour later, the truck slowed down and stopped completely.

It woke up the drowsy students.

“Get out of the truck in five seconds!” Li Xin’s loud and clear voice resounded.

Everyone left the back of the truck, looking disconcerted.

However, the moment they got out of the truck they saw that there was no one around.

They were now in the wilderness, where there was not even a building. Everyone was confused.

“Sir, where are we?” A student asked.

However, Li Xin did not respond to him. Instead, he took out a box from the truck’s passenger seat. He then took out a few bum bags from it before throwing them to the ground in front of everyone.

“One for each of you. After you put it on, count off.”

When he finished speaking, he looked at the students mischievously.

Although the students were a little confused, they still obediently put on those bum bags.

However, once they put those bags on, they were shocked.

Those bags were very heavy, and it was strenuous for most people to just hold one in hand.

When they opened the bags, they were surprised to find that each had a 100-pound piece of refined iron!

Everyone was even more confused.

“Why did you want us to carry a piece of refined iron?”

“I don’t understand.”

“You guys are really stupid. Can’t you see that the selection has already begun?”

“That’s right, if you don’t want to be eliminated, then be quick!”

After a student revealed the truth, everyone immediately put on their weighted bum bags.

Then, they began to count off.

“Hmm, not bad.” Liu Xin was very satisfied that the students reacted fast and wasted no time. He then began to speak, “From now on, we’re going to walk to our destination.”

“Without my permission, you are not allowed to take off your bum bag!”

After he finished speaking, he didn’t give the students a chance to think. He turned around and strode away.

Everyone took a deep breath and followed.

They were all students from the Elite Classes who had passed the first round of selection.

A 100-pound piece of refined iron was still acceptable to them, especially Su Bai. He carried his bum bag and followed Li Xin as if it was nothing.

However, this was the wilderness. There was no road in good condition, and their way was full of mud.

Although many of the students could persevere, they were trudging.

I didn’t expect the first test to be a loaded march.’

Liu Yiyi walked behind Su Bai and said, “Sure enough, it’s not that easy to enter the youth training camp.”

A loaded march was the basic military training exercise.

For soldiers, it was as normal as drinking water and eating.

However, it was different for the students in the school. They had spent almost all their energy on their beasts for the past three years and had neglected to improve their own physiques.

Not everyone was like Su Bai.

He could improve himself by running with weights.

Thus, very quickly, under Li Xin’s continuous acceleration, many students began to lose their posture and look badly battered.

But Su Bai remained expressionless.

“This kid is pretty good.”

Li Xin noticed Su Bai who was following closely behind and couldn’t help to praise him.

After all, Su Bai was a first-year student.

His first introduction had already left Li Xin with a deep impression, and now that his performance was even more outstanding than the other students, he had attracted Li Xin’s attention.

The students carried their weighted bum bags and crossed two mountains.

By the time Li Xin stopped, more than half of the people immediately lay on the ground, gasping for breath.

“H-H-He finally stopped …”

“I can’t take it anymore, My feet are numb.”

“What kind of hellish training is this? He doesn’t even let us drink water. Is he trying to make me die from exhaustion?”

“Drink water? He didn’t even stop!”

Everyone was complaining and panting for half a minute.

Liu Yiyi’s forehead was full of sweat, and bean-sized beads of sweat slid down her red cheeks.

But Su Bai was especially eye-catching in the crowd.

Not to mention panting, he didn’t even sweat.

This was the result of his special training. Running with a 100-pound weight was a piece of cake for him.

After resting for five minutes, Liu Xin put away his pocket watch and said, “I’ve finished resting. Now, I’ll announce the mission.”

Hearing this, everyone immediately stared at each other.

So, the loaded march was just a warm-up.

The real selection process had just begun!

“If we continue forward, we’ll reach the periphery of Wowo Village. There are sightings of beasts in the village all year round. Your mission is to exterminate this horde of beasts.”

After Li Xin finished speaking, he once again began to move forward.

The people who were left behind almost vomited blood.

They wished they could summon their beasts as their ride to move on.

They were all Beastmasters, so they had been relying on their beasts.

Now that they could not do so anymore, their strength was not much different from that of ordinary people.

“Let’s go!”

Now that things had come to this, they had no choice but to follow.

However, some of the students were at their last strength. Their legs were trembling so much that they couldn’t even stand up.

The first batch of students who made it was finally decided.

Those who stayed could only watch as the others walked further and further away, their eyes filled with despair.

“Are we just going to leave them there?” Su Bai asked Li Xin.

They were in the wilderness, and the students were already exhausted and could not move. If they encountered a beast, it would be disastrous.

“You’re quite relaxed, kid, ” Li Xin praised Su Bai. He continued with a smile, “Don’t worry, we’re not as mean as you think. Someone will be there for them.”

“Oh.” Su Bai nodded and kept moving forward in silence.

There were nine students at the beginning. It didn’t take a long time to eliminate four students. So now, only five students remained, and this was just the beginning!
