The so-called reward quickly reached the hands of everyone. It was a
small pink test tube and in it, was a pink liquid that was constantly
effervescing. Outside the test tube was marked a line of words –
Standard Nutritional Liquid.
‘This is a Nutrient Liquid that is consumed to quickly restore physical
energy. It can be consumed immediately or be kept for another time. ‘
The invigilator explained simply.
The second speed test started soon.
One after another, the obelisks rose from the ground and gradually
erected in front of the crowd.
Yiling coldly eyed Dragon Eye’s Beast. The other party’s injuries had
fully healed and was showing her a provocative look.
“Want to compete?” She lifted her eyebrows and raised her voice.
“You think I’m afraid of you?” Beast was previously entangled and
could not get even. Now was the time to collect some interest.
The two entered an obelisk one after another and disappeared.
After that, March and Nora walked into an obelisk together, clearly still
in diametric opposition to each other. Nine Owl Sect’s Wade entered one
of it alone.
Joey, however, scanned the crowd and found Garen, who was mingling in a
group from other sects.
“This kid actually passed? How lucky.” He couldn’t help smiling.
“He really thought we were looking for him to cooperate?”
“What happened, Joey?” A fair-skinned beautiful woman by his side
“Nothing. Only an overreaching idiot.” Joey was unimpressed. However,
he began to secretly take note of Garen.
The woman followed his previous sight of line and spotted Garen
“It’s him,” she said bluntly. “I heard that he was a genius
originally recruited by Central, but he hasn’t performed brilliantly
for so long. Those who initially paid attention to him have given up. If
he had broken through in three years, he might have been taken in as a
Three Hearted Disciple prep. Unfortunately, he spent five years.”
The woman’s intelligence seemed to be rather powerful as she casually
revealed Garen’s details.
“That’s already quite good. Five years to reach Level Four.” Joey
said lightly, “The average person needs more than a decade.”
“You have also said that that was the average person, so the standard
is different. Also, he is now over twenty five years old.” The woman
shook her head. “The initial genius had now become an ordinary person.
This is life. If you and I do not work hard, very soon we will be like
“Come, let’s go and have a look.” Joey took a step toward Garen’s
It so happened that Garen went right into an obelisk near his side, so
they both followed him with interest and entered the stele.
The speed test was a somewhat similar space and it also had the same
large piece of crystal stone wall. Green fluorescent light were glowing
faintly on it, casting a pale green over the entire black stone hall.
As the people came in, the surface of the stone wall also showed a line
‘The moving speed that reaches the standard can pass. From any point in
this space, move one standard meter toward the crystal.’ There was no
standard value for reaching the target, nor did it give a specific limit,
just such a sentence.
One standard meter was two hundred meters in length.
Without any delay, the first person began and rushed directly to the
crystal with a quick sprint.
The crystal wall he sprinted toward clearly showed a value, 0.5m/s.
“Failed.” The man also seemed to have expected it and was not
surprised. He just sighed and stood to a side to wait for his companion
to continue testing.
Garen stood amongst the crowd and watched the Energy Machinists went out
one by one. Many passed. This was because most of the Energy Machinists
placed an importance to their speed in order to be able to flee for their
lives. This was totally different from strength.
Only about twenty people came into this obelisk. However, only two people
failed for not reaching the standard while the rest passed.
Garen was also the same. He just managed to reach the standard of
clearance with a 1.1 standard point.
Joey and his companion also appeared, but their speed was much faster
than Garen’s, attaining two standard degrees.
Turning back from the front of the crystal wall, Joey again glanced at
the expressionless Garen and shook his head.
“I was still worried there was something remarkable about him, but now
it seems to be superfluous.” Thinking back to the two space rings he
had previously obtained, the various resources contained in it were
sufficient for him to break into the next level. Once he reached Level
Five, he would once again increase the distance between him and Garen. If
Garen wanted to catch up, without a seven or eight-years span he could
Joey immediately felt that his previous worry was a bit redundant.
“Forget it. Let’s go. Looks like this guy is also about the same as
those from Central; only doing well at the beginning but failing
afterwards,” he said plainly.
The woman nodded and looked at Garen in disdain.
Civilian Energy Machinists such as them made it through step by step by
themselves. They might be worse off at the beginning compared to Energy
Machinists of the likes of Garen this kind of squanderer who relied on
talent, but they would outdo them at the end. Regardless of whether it
was perseverance, experience, or combat awareness, et cetera, they would
surpass these twee-mannered so-called geniuses.
Garen gently wiped the sweat from his forehead with a paper. The full
speed that he burst out just now only managed to make it through, as he
His speed had only reached the critical point. The vast majority of these
Energy Machinists around him were faster than him. This was also a matter
As for Joey and his companion, he had also seen them. But, it did not
matter. Although he was unhappy with Joey’s previous robbery, there was
no chance of revenge in this moment. Obtaining the reward first was the
The third stage was Resistance. Almost none of the Energy Machinists
All Energy Machinists lived in an environment of coming in contact with
radiation for a long time. There was no doubt that there was no problem
with their bodies’ resistance. That Biochemical Pool used for testing
had what seemed like a horrific bubbling corrosive fluid. But for Energy
Machinists, it was just like having a bath with clothes on. That was all.
Only the last item left, Regenerative Power.
“On regenerative power, it seems that the winner will be determined
between the three of us.” March smiled and looked at the other two.
Inside the space of the silver sphere, the people of Scarlet Snow Sect
gathered in a group, and was in opposition with the people of Dragon Eye
Sect and Nine Owl Sect.
“That best essence must be mine.” Nine Owl Sect’s Wade’s facial
expression was the same, chilled and relaxed, except that that his tone
had a trace of absolute confidence.
“That can’t be arbitrarily determined. Perhaps whichever Energy
Machinist could suddenly surpass us and get the essence?” Dragon
Eye’s Nora smirked and glared at March. He knew he was unable to
acquire it. But since he could not get it, March and these people should
not even think about getting it. The team he led this time was attacked
by Scarlet Snow and it caused a great loss. If he did not reciprocate the
people of Scarlet Snow, he would feel bad about it.
“That would be a matter of looking at each person’s own
capability.” March was still holding his smile. His self-confident
demeanor, coupled with his handsome face and good looking physique, not
only attracted the female Energy Machinist of his own sect, but the other
sects and independents also had a good impression of him.
“The last test begins, Regenerative Power.” The invigilator plainly
said. “The testing method is very simple. As long as you can persist in
the Light of Corrosion for a long time, you can get a considerable score.
The person who passed the first test can get a bottle of perfect-level
gene modification fluid and the type is optional. All of them are
masterpieces. The strongest person will get the gene modification fluid
essence, which can raise two standard units.”
“Two standard units!!”
“My God! Essence, if you were to take it and sell it outside, it’s at
least millions of crystal stones! It truly is Spirit Mothership!”
“I must get it!”
The atmosphere among the Energy Machinists, which was initially tepid,
was immediately ignited by these words. It instantly became the same
environment as a noisy market.
Among them, the ones most likely to get the essence were naturally the
three strongest trio, Nora, March and Wade.
These three were powerhouses of Level Five culmination and had
accumulated abundantly. Their modification had reached the zenith in all
aspects. It can be said that as long as they were serious, there was
hardly any chance for anyone present to surpass them.
Nora contemptuously glanced at those loud Energy Machinists and looked
provocatively at March. He had made up his mind. Even if he could not
pass, he would want March to fail as well. The battle between Scarlet
Snow Sect and Dragon Eye Sect had intensified and they were no need to
cover it up at all.
March was not bothered. He was the first one to approach the obelisk that
had just appeared. This time he did not enter but stood in front of it.
The others all got ready and came before the obelisk.
Some people who had not participated before began to feel nervous.
The invigilator smiled and waved his hand.
Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh…
At that moment, hundreds of white beams fell from the sky and landed
accurately on the ground, gently wrapping each of the Energy Machinists
and enveloping them.
“Don’t be nervous.” The invigilator spoke softly, but the voice was
naturally transmitted into the ears of every Energy Machinist.
“Everyone will begin the test at the same time. The longer you
persevere, the more benefits you will obtain. This is a test. It is also
a replenishment. You have to seize the opportunity.”
There were only a hundred people or so left in the field. When they heard
the words of the invigilator, most of them were silent. A minority of
people were slightly excited. As if having some understanding of the
test, some people actually even took out their Energy Machinery to go
through the test together.
The invigilator saw this and nodded slightly.
He glanced at the best trio. Those three Energy Machinist leaders were
standing in a triangle, opposing one another. Their respective force
field faintly radiated out, almost pushing out the Energy Machinists
The invigilator secretly nodded and presumed that it would be one of the
three who would be able to get the essence this time.
“I will count to three. One…two…three! Begin!”
After a muffled tone, the white light beam suddenly turned pale red.
Garen also stood in a beam of light. Feeling the red light descended, his
body suddenly quavered a little.
His skin suddenly felt a warm and soft sensation. But in the moment of
this feeling, his Living Secret Technique Seed suddenly gave an alarm to
Only then did Garen observed carefully and noticed that this warm and
soft feeling was just due to the nerves being numbed. In fact, his skin
was actually being corroded by a certain power.
“I’ve never been afraid of anyone when it comes to comparing
regenerative power!” Hearing that there was an essence to obtain, Garen
also had some thoughts about it. His score was worse than other people in
the other items. But this one, he was confident that no one would be
stronger than him! Maybe he could catch up with the scores of other items
and eventually get the essence.
Some things you had to strive for it. If you did not have the ability to
do so, then it did not matter. But if you had the ability and yet not
strive for it, this would slow down your pace instead. That would be
After making up his mind, Garen slowly adjusted his body’s regenerative
power to get into the best state. The powerful regenerative ability of
his Living Secret Technique and the terrifying regenerative power of 4.7
constitution was thoroughly shown by Garen.
As time went by, the concentration of red light was slowly increasing.
About ten minutes later.
One Energy Machinist first stumbled out of the beam and looked back at
the rest with a bitter face. He was the worst. This was a deep blow to
his already poor confidence.
With the first one, there was then a second one. Soon, the third, fourth
and more and more Energy Machinists were thrown out in fifteen minutes or
The corrosive power of the red light had also reached a relatively strong
point. It kept corroding the human skin, and then let the self-healing
ability of the living creatures to fight against this type of corrosion.
This was the content of the test.
March provocatively gave Nora a look. The latter’s face was unsightly
as he saw that three of his Dragon Eye Sect’s disciples had been thrown
out; whereas, Scarlet Snow Sect only had one eliminated thus far. Seeing
the triumphant look in March’s eyes, his lungs were about to blow up.
“It’s too early to be proud now!” He spoke coldly.
At this moment, the two men looked in the direction of Nine Owl Sect, but
they were stunned as they discovered that up till now, Nine Owl Sect had
not had a single person out of the game.
The first batch that could not persevere had ended and time passed in
minutes and seconds. Soon, the radiation concentration of the red light
had reached a new qualitative position.
Boom! Bang, bang, bang, bang!!!
In an instant and almost at the same moment, half of the people from
Scarlet Snow Sect and Dragon Eye Sect were thrown out. Dragon Eye Sect
did not have many people to begin with and this time, there was almost no
one left. Nora eyed March with a surly expression. Had it not been for
the previous sneak attack, killing the few who had strong recovery
ability, how could they have come to such a terrible situation?
The ones from Dragon Eye Sect who were popped out looked unsightly and
bleak. However, when they looked in the direction of Scarlet Snow, they
found that their faces were not looking good either. Most of Scarlet
Snow’s people were staring at Nine Owl Sect that side.
These people turned their gaze and it suddenly dawned on them that among
the more than a dozen of people from Nine Owl Sect, only four were thrown
out while most of them were still persevering.
“This is dangerous! If the essence fought by both sides is acquired by
Nine Owl Sect, it will be really fun.”
Scarlet Snow and Dragon Eye had the strongest capability while Nine Owl
Sect was only moderate. Its strength and force was not as strong as the
two. It had always been the case of Scarlet Snow and Dragon Eye taking
advantage of their respective rankings. There were almost no exceptions.
But looking at this time, Nine Owl Sect seemed to have come prepared.
They really planned to compete for the first place this time.
“Everyone! Full strength!” March felt that the situation was a bit
troublesome. The capability of Nine Owl was not as good as they were.
They had never lost to them before. If they lost this time, what a great
embarrassment that would be!
Yiling, Joey and the others were still persevering. There were two more
who were second only to March and were the same level powerhouse as
Yiling. Initially, they were calm, but after hearing this voice
transmission, they also began to be serious and tried to minimize the
