My Werewolf System - chapter-321-a-common-altered
In the current world, it was rare for people to live outside the cities
and towns, since those were the only places one could get work. The
higher tier the city or town, the higher the average pay would be. If
they could afford it, people would live in the cities, yet it wasn”™t
rare for the majority of the workforce to commute to work from a nearby
town due to the high rent cost inside the city.
Of course, the Tier-5 “کtownsâ€™ barely deserved such a name. They were
essentially just giant dumps that housed people who had nothing and lived
off of the scraps of the other cities. It was to the point that their
â€کhousesâ€™ consisted of whatever materials the other cities had
discarded, and they could slap together.
These cities were why the AFC Academy, more commonly known as the AFA,
was a unique place.
It was a school that was the most prominent gathering place for Altered
all over the country, and it was the only place of its kind in the
current region. Of course, there were academies abroad that trained
special Altered, but this academy was more unique since, as the name
suggested, it was an official part of the AFC.
It was generally considered the best place for any Altered’s future, be
it as an Altered fighter, or in another profession. There were many
events for the students to show off to sponsors of the worldwide most
watched televised sport!
The academy itself was located in a tier two city but wasnâ€™t a part of
the city itself. It was out in the countryside. It was a large building
that was home to around two thousand different Altered. It might seem
like a large amount, yet it was minuscule compared to the world’s current
Despite its location, the academy boasted great wealth thanks to the
students that attended it. This place was meant to be an independently
run facility, away from the Tier-1 cities, although whether people
believed that or not, was another thing.
Currently, five new potential students were standing inside what looked
like an empty white room. Each of them was wearing a plain white uniform,
and in front of them were three older gentlemen. They, too, were wearing
white uniforms similar to the students, although their styling was a
“Every year, facilities around the whole world succeed in making
breakthrough after breakthrough.” A man in the centre with giant round
glasses and a tall body began to speak while pacing back and forth in
front of the five teenagers.
“This has led to an increase in the appearance of Altered in generalâ€¦
making them more common.”
Although what the professor of the academy was saying was true, ‘common’
seemed to be a horrible word to use in this context. After all, the
statement was merely true among the upper class, and even then, less than
one percent of people could afford to get their hands on Altered DNA.
“Should this trend continue, there may come a day that everyone in the
world will have become an Altered. Be that as it may, our Academy HAS
always and WILL always pride ourselves in one thing! We are THE place to
cultivate the most elite generation of Altered!
“Naturally, that means that we donâ€™t accept anyone. Money canâ€™t buy
everything, and it wonâ€™t buy you the right to stay here. You still have
to earn that!”
Looking at the five students, they all stood up straight and tall, strong
and confident, among them was Xin Clove, though she attended under a fake
name. Today was supposed to be her first day at the AFA, yet from the
professor’s words, she understood that if she didn’t show the potential,
then this might also be her last.
‘I’m not going back! Jayden went through all the trouble to allow me to
get a chance to be free, so I need to at least be able to go through all
The bespectacled man stepped back, allowing a bulky professor to step
forward. His colleague looked a little strange, given that he had a large
and round belly, yet his arms appeared to be that of a muscle builder,
with next to no fat visible on them at all.
“The five of you shall now undergo a trial, which will determine your
positions in the next room.” The second man stated. “There are only two
rules to it. Don’t get hit, and remain in your human form.”
“What?!” A boy shouted in frustration, his blonde spiky hair moving about
due to his anger. “Some of us might have really rare Altered forms or are
better at utilising it than others! If you test us without letting us go
all out, how is that fair?”
“Simple.” The original professor with the glasses replied. “We have done
extensive research on Altered. If your Altered form is based on a
genuinely strong beast, then it means your body would have changed in
accordance to house it, meaning that even in your human form you will be
able to display inhumane feats.
“Should that not be the case, then it simply means that the beast inside
you is weak. If you dislike it, you are free to leave and apply to
another academy. I can guarantee you that there wonâ€™t be a shortage of
students who wish to apply, and these harsh criteria have allowed us to
ensure that only the best of the best get through.”
Hearing this, Xin felt confident because she trusted in her own skills
even before she became an Altered. However, there was a problem. This
supposed change of her body was not something she had experienced for
‘Maybe we shouldn’t have trusted that NIRV guy. After that injection, he
had assured me that everything had gone perfectly fine, but I still
struggle to keep up my Altered formâ€¦’ Xin thought. Fortunately, it had
been enough to let her pass the Altered test they had to partake in
before even getting to this stage, which proved that she was no longer
“Well, what do we do now?” A tired-looking kid asked, once the three
professors had left the room. He had large black eyes that made him
resemble a panda.
Just then, they heard a clicking sound, and in the next instant, a large
black ball came hurling out from the side of the wall and struck one of
the students. The ball wasn’t heavy, so it didn’t hurt at all, but as the
student tried to pull it off from himself, the sticky substance just went
onto his hand instead,
He then used his foot, but it still stuck it onto his body.
“Rick Toenail, you have been eliminated! Please stand to the side and do
not interfere with the test!” A mechanical voice sounded in the room.
“That was your name?” The spiky-haired kid from before couldn’t help but
laugh, hearing the announcement. The next second, the one with the panda
eyes jumped from his position and had nearly cleared two metres quickly.
A large black ball went straight past him, forcing the other three
students to evade. Noticing the ball, Xin dodged to the left, while the
loudmouth moved in the opposite direction. Soon, more and more of these
black balls started coming from the walls on the side, then from above
and below as well, until they were being blasted from all over the room.
The professors were watching everything through the screen. It had been a
minute since the test had begun, and they were getting a clear grasp on
the students’ abilities.
“Looks like we have a couple of good ones with us.” One of the professors
noted with a smile.
“Indeed, the Panda boy has the best reflexes out of the lot. It looks
like he is using next to no effort to dodge everything that is coming his
way. As for Ryan, although his attitude is quite bad, he appears to have
the best physical capabilities of this batch. He can outrun and see all
the objects coming towards them.”
“What about the other two?” Another professor asked.
“The other twoâ€¦ are nothing special. They appear to struggle, so itâ€™s
doubtful they will last until the end.”
Xin was trying her best to avoid all the black balls. She was imagining
them as fists and kicks hurling towards her, completely focusing on them.
The teenager girl needed to see the balls as soon as possible to give her
the most time to react, but it was proving a great struggle with the
number of black balls coming towards her.
As the test continued, not only had the number of balls increased, their
speed had as well. On the other hand, Xin was getting tired, mentally as
well as physically.
‘Panda Eyes, and Spiky Hair, are still doing fine. It was as if the first
few minutes were just a warm-up for them.’ Xin noticed and glanced at the
tall, lanky boy close to her. ‘If this goes on, the two of us arenâ€™t
going to pass this test.â€™
It was at that moment that three black balls came towards her. With the
trajectory of the other balls, she knew that she wasn’t fast enough to
avoid them. There were only a few ways to get out of the current
One of them was being hit by the balls in front of her, so the ones at
the side wouldn’t hit her, but that’s when she came up with another plan,
as she looked at the struggling boy to her side. Lifting her leg, she
landed a blow to his temple, knocking him out cold.
Before he fell to the floor, she grabbed his body and placed it in front
of her. Using her fellow candidate as a literal human shield, Xin started
running forward, blocking the black balls in front of her. Eventually
letting go, she was ready to dodge more, but the balls had already
The test was over. However, her actions didn’t go unnoticed by the others
in the room, as well as the professors who had watched everything over
the cameras and were now discussing her strategy.
“The rules just stated that we had to avoid touching the balls while
staying in our human forms. I didnâ€™t break any rules, right?” Xin
asked, huffing and panting.
No matter what, she was going to get accepted!
