"Speed!" Finally, somebody broke the silence.
"Yes, a speed even faster than Kang Xingping. From the moment he entered the tornado, causing his body to integrate with the tornado, then unleashing his attack on Kang Xingping!" Due to someone's reminder, somebody instantly understood.
"Isn't this too extreme? In a blink of an eye changing from a direct attack to the integration with the tornado. This control over body and wind… I fear it's even more powerful than Kang Xingping!"
"It isn't just more powerful! This is defeating the enemy in just one move. To be able to reach such a level, I believe it requires the minimum ability of Divine Seal Peak!"
"Can it be… even more powerful?!"
At this moment, when the crowd looked at Yan Xiu again, they had already been completely stunned by the ability Yan Xiu had demonstrated. Experience? In front of true power, that was just a joke.
Furthermore, who would dare say that the one move Yan Xiu demonstrated wasn't an extremely powerful battle experience?
Leaving home at sixteen, using one move to defeat Kang Xingping, number eighty in the Hidden Dragon Roll.
At least the Divine Seal Peak State?! Or even stronger!
"Kang Xingping, eliminated!"
"Yan Xiu, advanced!"
In the sky, a clear voice sounded out. Immediately after, Kang Xingping also vanished from his original spot, and a black stone door appeared in front of Yan Xiu.
The stone door opened. Yan Xiu turned around and glanced at Fang Zhengzhi, then walked in.
Afterwards, the stone door closed.
Only at this moment did the crowd finally believe that Kang Xingping had truly been defeated by Yan Xiu in one move.
As they recalled the scene when Yan Xiu initiated the fight with Kang Xingping, everybody believed that challenging a strong person on the Hidden Dragon Roll was a very unwise move.
But in reality?
He wasn't even able to enjoy the fight.
Kang Xingping being eliminated in the first round was something that nobody could have thought of. Then, an even more unbelievable thing happened.
Fang Zhengzhi had actually walked out from the crowd.
Furthermore, he didn't walk towards the direction of the rockfall matrix, and instead walked towards a youth wearing a purple armour, his eyes narrow as slits.
"Umm… I feel your face, is too ugly!" Fang Zhengzhi recognised Cai Yongfeng who stood in front of him, his tone filled with sincerity.
Cai Yongfeng was instantly stunned.
Not only Cai Yongfeng, all of the examinees were completely stunned.
Was this the combat examination of the Law of Dao examination, or a beauty contest? It was still acceptable if that was a fan, but a person's face being ugly… was this something people could decide?
Born by parents, how could people change this?
Of course, all these weren't the main point. The main point was that Fang Zhengzhi actually so "frankly" told Cai Yongfeng in his face that his face, was too ugly!
"What does he want to do? Don't tell me he wants to challenge Cai Yongfeng in the first round?!"
"This isn't very possible? Cai Yongfeng is number fifty-six in the Hidden Dragon Roll, and had already reached the Divine Seal Advanced Stage a year ago. Rumours say that he had already reached the Divine Seal Peak State!"
"Could it be that he had mixed around with Yan Xiu for too long, and really believed that he was Yan Xiu?"
After the surrounding scholars managed to react, they all began to discuss.
Everybody felt that Fang Zhengzhi's action was as dumb as digging his own grave. After all, with his ranking as the theory examination roll champion, all he had to do was to carefully make his way to the third round to pass the capital examination.
As the crowd discussed incessantly, Cai Yongfeng didn't lose his calm due to Fang Zhengzhi's "frankness", and instead seemed appreciative.
"Looks like you have already guessed?" The edges of Cai Yongfeng's mouth curved into a cold smile.
"Anyway, there will definitely be someone in the first round to come out and test the water, why not I choose one myself. Hope you don't mind?" Fang Zhengzhi suddenly felt as if he wasn't frank enough, because, Cai Yongfeng had actually held back.
"Of course, I don't mind, ha ha ha…" After he spoke, he walked out from the crowd. And behind him, four armoured youth around the same age as him walked out.
Fang Zhengzhi looked at the youths following behind Cai Yongfeng, and his smile grew even wider.
Buy one get four free?
This was indeed an unexpected surprise!
In reality, Fang Zhengzhi knew very clearly that for him to pass the first two rounds, it indeed wasn't very easy. Because, the people who came to the River of Trust Capital this time didn't have the exact same purposes.
Some of their goals were to defeat him, while some aimed to remove him from the Law of Dao examination.
Kang Xingping belonged to the former. Because, he had the status of being the ninth son of the Kang family, hence, he had to ensure that he was able to pass the capital examination.
However, Cai Yongfeng was different. He had already secretly instigated Li Zhuangshi to sabotage Fang Zhengzhi in the theory examination, hence, needless to say, he belonged to the latter.
The former would patiently wait for the third round before advancing their motives, while the latter would act in the first two rounds.
Things were classified into importance and urgency.
Hence, Fang Zhengzhi naturally picked the latter.
Outside the pocket dimension, in the capital office of the River of Trust Capital, in a spacious lounge, a project was cast in the air. What appeared on the projection was the scene of Fang Zhengzhi and Cai Yongfeng.
And around the projection sat Han Changfeng and a few other examiners.
"He's very smart, but he made a life-threatening mistake!" An examiner looked at the projection and spoke softly.
"Indeed, if he could stay beside Yan Xiu for protection for the entire time, he might really have the chance to pass the first two rounds!" Another examiner also nodded at this moment.
"What if from the start, he hadn't ever thought about seeking Yan Xiu for protection?" Imperial Messenger Qin spoke as he heard the conversation between the two examiners.
"Then isn't him really too naive? Don't tell me that he really believed, just by him alone… he is able to make enemies with so many people, then smoothly pass the combat examination?" The examiner who had spoken first gazed at Imperial Messenger Qin.
"How would worldly things have an absolute?" Imperial Messenger Qin didn't continue to argue, and seemed to be speaking to himself.
"Ha ha…" The other examiners didn't speak further, however, an expression of disbelief appeared on their faces.
At this moment, Fang Zhengzhi had suddenly began to move within the picture.
This naturally attracted the attention of the examiners once again, then, the eyes of the examiner instantly turned round.
Because, Fang Zhengzhi didn't, as they had expected, charge towards Cai Yongfeng and the other four, and instead, turned around and ran towards the direction of the rockfall matrix.
This sudden change in situation caused all the examiners to become stunned.
After all, they had clearly heard that Fang Zhengzhi had initiated the challenge against Cai Yongfeng. That sentence, "You look, very ugly!" still echoed till this moment.
What was this about?
After a moment of shock, a wave of laughter erupted from the examiners who were discussing previously.
"Ha ha ha… Imperial Messenger Qin, is this what you mean by seeking Yan Xiu's protection?"
As Fang Zhengzhi ran towards the rockfall matrix, even Han Changfeng, wearing a white official robe and closing his eyes slightly all along, suddenly opened his eyes and exclaimed in confusion.
On the other hand, Imperial Messenger Qin's face turned slightly red, and his lips parted, but didn't make a sound. Instead, he fixated his gaze strongly onto Fang Zhengzhi, with an expression filled with complete disbelief.
