The Xuan formations were already set up in the woods. The assessment started the moment they entered the woods.
Before this, Si Ting had already noticed that the Xuan formation was special and that it would be troublesome to enter from this position.
The academy teachers had clearly done this on purpose. Only Xuan Masters with true talent and capabilities could recognize the Xuan formation and choose to enter it from another position.
This was also the reason why he did not follow those people in the first instance and chose to stay at the back. He never intended to enter from that entrance. However, he did not expect that someone else noticed this apart from him.
This person was precisely Chu Liuyue, who was just admitted into the academy. Thoughts flashed across Si Ting’s mind as he looked at Chu Liuyue calmly again. Is this a coincidence, or… is she really capable?
Chu Liuyue naturally noticed Si Ting’s gaze, but she continued moving back a few steps without hesitation and opened the correct entrance to the forest. She then chose to move forward in another direction.
“If you wait any longer, I’ll be first instead.” Chu Liuyue turned around and smiled at Si Ting.
Si Ting was taken aback and momentarily felt that the view surrounding them had lost its color.
The young girl in red seemed to have gathered all the light, becoming so dazzling that his eyes hurt. However, her pair of charming, black eyes—which were as shiny as a gem—was even brighter than all of those.
Everything around her seemed to blur, and this young girl was the only one in color.
Si Ting’s heart tingled as if something had glided past it. When he recovered his senses, Chu Liuyue’s figure had already disappeared into the thick woods; he could only see the leaves waving in the breeze.
Si Ting closed his eyes and calmed his beating heart. After hesitating for a while, he moved back a few steps and entered from another direction.
The teachers in charge of the examination only recovered from their shock after all the students entered the forest. They looked at each other in complete disbelief.
“How did… Chu Liuyue go inside just now? Only stage-three Xuan Masters can identify this array formation. Logically speaking, only Si Ting can find the correct way to enter. How did Chu Liuyue do it?”
Even though Si Ting had been very quiet the past half a year, a few teachers at the academy knew that he had already become a stage-three Xuan Master a few days ago. He was not even 15 years old this year, but his talent and capabilities were unmatched in the entire Country Yao Chen.
He would not even lose to his seniors. It was more than normal for him to spot the trick in the Xuan formation. However… how did Chu Liuyue do it?
“Hah, I said that Little Liuyue is a genius, yet you didn’t believe me. When the results come out, remember to glue your eyeballs to your sockets, lest they drop out.” Bai Chen had already walked over. He was not the teacher in charge of the examination, so he could only watch by the side and not participate personally. However, this did not stop him from coming over to watch a good show.
“Let me warn you first; I’m first in line if Little Liuyue wants to choose a teacher. None of you can fight with me,” said Bai Chen animatedly. When he saw Chu Liuyue choose to enter from the correct direction, he could not help but exclaim in his heart. After the results come out, these people will definitely not treat Little Liuyue the same way.
A teacher nodded. “It seems like Chu Liuyue does have talent in this area. Even if she can’t compare to Si Ting, she’s still pretty decent.”
They were all Xuan Masters, so they obviously could see her abilities. This was not something they could deny.
“Can’t be compared to Si Ting?” retorted Bai Chen as he laughed heartily, “That might not be the case.”
