786 Feeling Good
No, no —
The Ice Fire Beast glared at Feng Wu and wouldn’t look away .
It shook its head repeatedly .
Blood poured out of the holes where the horns used to be .
“Pffft —” The Ice Fire Beast spat out a mouthful of blood, convulsed violently, and died .
It refused to close its eyes .
It was still staring at Feng Wu with a twisted face in its very last moment .
In front of the screen, Grand Secretary Fang and Priest Wu exchanged amazed looks yet again .
Priest Wu asked, “Ice attribute?”
Grand Secretary Fang said, “Yes . ”
Priest Wu asked, “Can it happen to adults?”
Grand Secretary Fang said, “Not normally . ”
Feng Wu had done it .
Just then, footsteps came from outside!
Grand Secretary Fang and Priest Wu switched the camera focus right away and the screen now showed Xuanyuan Yi .
A tall, thin old man in a neat white robe walked in, looking almost ethereal .
He greeted Grand Secretary Fang with a smile as soon as he entered the room . “Mr Fang, have you been here every day?”
It was the elderly head of the Xuanyuan family and one of the seven members of the education board, Xuanyuan Kun .
“I have . ” Grand Secretary Fang nodded, then gestured at Xuanyuan Kun to sit down .
Seeing his grandson on the screen, Xuanyuan Kun smiled even more cheerfully . “Have you been observing Yi Er?”
Grand Secretary Fang nodded . “Xuanyuan Yi has been quite impressive . ”
Xuanyuan Kun gloated, which didn’t match his otherworldly demeanor .
Stroking his goatee, he feigned a look of resignation . “Not impressive enough, apparently . He’s still second . What a pity . ”
Priest Wu rubbed his chin . “Not necessarily . ”
Xuanyuan Kun looked as if he was confused . “How so?”
Priest Wu cursed the cunning old man in his head . The old fox was doing this on purpose . However, he still answered the question . “The sacred son might be first in the physical tryout, but he did very poorly in the written exam . We can’t say for sure that he’ll be first . ”
Xuanyuan Kun rubbed his chin, as if he was lost in thought, but his eyes flickered .
He then waved his hand . “No, no, that can’t be . The sacred son is as famous as His Royal Highness; there’s no way my Yi Er will be able to surpass him . ”
Priest Wu vented his sarcasm inwardly . If that’s the case, cut the crap already .
However, in order to keep Xuanyuan Kun’s attention away from Feng Wu, Priest Wu had to find every excuse to compare Xuanyuan Yi with Yu Mingye .
“Of course it’s possible . Anything is possible . We’ll never know before the final results are out . ” Priest Wu gave a double-edged reply .
In fact, Priest Wu found Feng Wu much more promising than Xuanyuan Yi .
Grand Secretary Fang had warned Priest Wu already: For some special reason, Feng Wu’s recovery of her cultivation ability couldn’t be made public yet . It had to stay a secret .
Priest Wu grinned at Xuanyuan Kun .
To him, first and second place in the exam should belong to Feng Wu and Yu Mingye . There was no hope for Xuanyuan Yi .
However, Old Man Xuanyuan here took the bait .
“You really think my Yi Er… has a chance?”
“Yes, of course . Everyone has a chance . Have faith . ” Priest Wu smiled like a fox .
Xuanyuan Kun waved his hands again, feigning modesty . “You flatter me . Come to think of it, Yi Er really has great talent in martial arts . And he did pretty well in the written exam, too . Hahahaha —”
