“Yes, elder brother.” Huo Yuhao quickly replied. He already had his own thoughts. After seeing the mounted Spirit Guidance Weapon’s overwhelming force, he had already developed an interest in Spirit Guidance Weapons. He also understands the great power of the enemies he wants to gain revenge on. He would have to use all available power. If he doesn’t learn about Spirit Guidance Devices, then how could he know how powerful they really are?
He didn’t know that this kind of thought would soon become proven as Spirit Guidance Weapons will open a wide door for him.
Tang Ya leisurely said, “However, you guys may not be successful even if you choose the Spirit Guidance Division. It is great to have won the Freshman Examination, but there are also problems that come with it! Yuhao, if you can’t enter the Spirit Guidance Division, then cultivating normally is just as good.”
Huo Yuhao paused, “Teacher Xiao Ya, why would I be unable to enter the Spirit Guidance Division?”
Tang Ya responded, “Do you guys know the rewards for the Freshman Examination?”
Hearing the word reward, Huo Yuhao’s trio’s eyes suddenly brightened. They were all young and couldn’t hide their emotions well. Shrek Academy was the world’s number one Spirit Master academy. They were also the champions of the Freshman Examination. How could the rewards be lacking?
Wang Dong couldn’t wait to ask, “Teacher Xiao Ya, what are our rewards?” After joining the Tang Clan, he had switched his form of address to match Huo Yuhao’s.
Tang Ya responded, “The reward is different every year, but it usually doesn’t differ by much. Usually, the reward is based on the overall quality of the class. I don’t know about others, but in the few years after I joined, we have not seen a single freshman Spirit Elder. You guys are the first. So, I predict that your reward must be really good. As for exactly what, I don’t know. But there is one reward that the champions always receive. That is becoming a core disciple.”
“Core disciple?” It was not the first time that they had heard about it. Teacher Zhou also mentioned it before.
Tang Ya nodded, “You guys are the freshman champions. So there should be no problems in becoming core disciples in the Battle Spirit Division. But, if you become core disciples in the Battle Spirit Division, then the academy will focus more resources on you so that you can improve and become more powerful Spirit Masters. In these circumstances, the Battle Spirit Division would of course not let you choose to learn in the Spirit Guidance Division. In our academy, the Battle Spirit Division always takes the lead.”
Just then did Huo Yuhao’s trio understand. The moment he thought of how core disciples can eat the most nutritious meal, his face broke out in joy.
Bei Bei looked at Huo Yuhao with a hint of doubt. But, he did not say it outloud. He thought to himself, hopefully I’m being too pessimistic.
Dawn. Another sun filled morning. Because of the Sea God Lake in the middle of the academy, the air was not only refreshing but also very humid.
After the results of the Freshman Examination had spread across the entire campus, it was time to divide classes.
The Battle Spirit Division Director Du Weilun lead a dozen teachers in front of the students. Within these teachers, Huo Yuhao only recognized two. The first was of course his previous homeroom teacher, Zhou Yi. The second was teacher Wang Yan. He only had vague impressions of the other teachers.
Du Weilun carried a folder in his hands. He scanned the students with a smiled. “I believe you have all heard that the Freshman Examination elimination contest is over. We have determined the top three teams. Next, I will announce the winners and their rewards. Freshman Examination, third place. Team Huang Chutian. Team members, Huang Chutian, Lan Susu, Lan Luouo. Please step up.”
That’s right. After being defeated by Huo Yuhao’s team, they were able to successfully obtain the outstanding grade of third place. They lost to Dai Huabin’s team in the semifinals, but won against Zhou Sichen’s team in the third place match. They were also lucky. The Lan sisters’ Spirit Fusion Ability recovered during the match against Zhou Sichen’s team. This helped them win. Otherwise, based on personal strengths, there was no chance they could have won.
Under Huang Chutian’s lead, the three of them walked in front of Du Weilun. Because of their youthful excitement, their faces were slightly blushed. To obtain third place was already out of their expectations!
The entire freshman student body exploded in thunderous applause. After the elimination contest, there was around three hundred students left in the freshman year. Compared to when school first started, two-thirds have left.
“Second place. Team Dai Huabin. Team members, Dai Huabin, Zhu Lu, Cui Yajie. Step up.”
Applause sounded again. But when Dai Huabin’s trio walked up, their faces did not carry any excitement. Especially Dai Huabin. He was very tense and slightly lowered his head as if deep in thought. Vessels of blood were also apparent in his double pupil eyes.
Du Weilun paused a second, then slightly raised his voice, “Next, please give your warm applause to welcome the Freshman Examination Champions. They are, Team Wang Dong. Team members, Wang Dong, Xiao Xiao and Huo Yuhao.”
Suddenly, the entire field exploded in enthusiastic celebration. But after hearing Du Weilun’s announcement, Huo Yuhao’s trio blanked a moment.
According to the Freshman Class One application, their team name should be Team Huo Yuhao. Huo Yuhao was the captain! But, in front of so many students’ cheers and applause, they did dare to pause and quickly stepped up. However, when they were walking to the front, Wang Dong and Xiao Xiao purposely slowed by half a step to let Huo Yuhao walk in the front.
Seeing the three of them step up, Du Weilun revealed a smile and indicated for them to stand in the center. Huo Yuhao looked at Dai Huabin at the side, who was staring back at Wang Dong. Obviously, he didn’t think his loss had anything to do with Huo Yuhao.
Du Weilun continued, “Good. Now I will announce prizes for the top three teams. Members of all three teams will first receive the same award of being able to choose a spirit ring when needed. It will be provided by the academy at the academy’s own expense. And, it will be the most suitable spirit ring.”
With these words, the freshman students were in shock and praise. This reward was basically the academy’s promise to these nine students that their next spirit ring will be at the limit. For example, Huo Yuhao should be able to endure a seven hundred year spirit ring for his second ring, so the school will help him find a suitable seven hundred year spirit ring. If every single person was given this, then this reward was quite significant.
