Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1097
Chapter 1097 – Malicious Ghost’s Possession
A poisonscale wolf pounced towards a Mage. Although the wolf couldn’t fly, its leap still covered a huge distance. It jumped a hundred meters in one go. The Mage didn’t expect the wolf to jump so far, so he wasn’t able to guard on time. This allowed the wolf to hit the Mage’s protective barrier.
The Mage’s barrier fiercely shook, causing his body to fly backwards. While the Mage was pushed back, his barrier shattered as well.
This caused the Mage’s expression to change. One should know that this protective barrier was made using Magic Theory. Although it was only a single-layer formation, it was still very powerful compared to normal barriers. How could such a barrier be destroyed by a poisonscale wolf in one strike?
However, it seems like the strike also exhausted the wolf. As it fell from the air, the wolf looked like a falling leaf as it fluttered to the ground.
The Mage relaxed. But just as he was about to arrange another single-layer barrier, he suddenly felt his back turn cold. He was startled and immediately flew forward.
But it was already too late. As the Mage was flying forward, he felt his neck turn cool, then his arms felt light, then his entire body completely shut down. At this time, the other Mages had yet to notice this, but Zhao Hai was able to see everything. A poisonous ironthread serpent just attacked. After tying down the Mage’s neck, the snake bit off one arm before proceeding to take the Mage’s life.
Not long after the Mage died, the snake wrapped around his neck tighter, slammed its body on the ground and then flung the body towards the darkness. At the same time, the snake used the momentum from throwing the Mage’s body in order to retreat and find an opportunity to attack another Mage.
Before the first Mage’s body hit the dark floor of the cave, a malicious ghost suddenly charged forward and slowly possessed the Mage’s body. The ‘Mage’ then opened his eyes. However, the eyes were completely black. Also, his body was filled with strong killing aura.
The possessed Mage fluttered back into the light magic. But as he entered the range of the light magic, he began to emit black gas. His eyes also showed a painful expression. However, he didn’t make any noise. Instead, he continued to get close to another Mage. This Mage turned out to be the Old Light Mage.
Zhao Hai calmly looked as all of these happened. After the poisonous ironthread serpent flung the Mage towards the darkness, Zhao Hai knew that the Mage was already dead. However, instead of being transformed into an Undead like he expected, the malicious ghost actually possessed the Mage’s body.
Back on Earth, it was well-known that ghosts were able to possess a body. However, Zhao Hai didn’t see any ghosts in the Ark Continent nor the Underworld that could do so. He didn’t expect to see this ability here.
The possessed ghost was already beside the Old Mage. Although the Mages from the Adam Academy weren’t united, they weren’t stupid. They were aware that the Old Mage was the only Light element Mage among them. If the Old Mage died, then they would have a very difficult time fending off the ghosts and beasts.
Because of this, the Mages grouped up with the Old Mage being in the center.
But since these Mages weren’t able to see the action made by the poisonous ironthread serpent, they didn’t have any suspicion towards the possessed Mage. This allowed the possessed Mage to get close to the Old Mage without any difficulties.
The possessed Mage also pretended to hold off the a.s.saulting poisonscale wolves. At the same time, he went closer and closer towards the Old Mage. Before long, the malicious ghost was already five meters away from the Old Mage.
Although the Old Mage noted this action, he didn’t attack the malicious ghost. The Old Mage’s magic now had reduced range. Also, the other Mages didn’t use light magic from Magic Theory, instead they used lower realm magic.
Zhao Hai knew that the old Mage’s spiritual force was beginning to be exhausted. It must be said that the Old Mage’s spiritual force shouldn’t have been exhausted this soon. However, the Old Mage still wasn’t familiar with Magic Theory, this caused him to consume more spiritual force than usual.
Another reason for this consumption might be the Mages’ underestimation of the Undead. These Mages had also met Undead in their own lower realms, so they didn’t take the Undead too seriously. Because of this, they attacked the Undead without thinking. As a result, they consumed their spiritual force too quickly before even meeting a malicious ghost.
While the Old Mage was distracted, the possessed Mage suddenly charged towards him. Then the possessed Mage stretched his hands out. These hands didn’t cast any magic, instead it became long black claws that looked very menacing.
The Old Mage wasn’t on guard against this surprise attack. When he discovered the attack, it was already too late. Before the Old Mage could react, the ghost’s claws had already ripped a whole on the Old Mage’s throat.
The Old Mage’s throat gave out a horrifying sound as he looked at the malicious ghost in horror. It didn’t take long before the Old Mage lost his strength. With n.o.body left to maintain it, the light magic began to vanish.
With the Old Mage dead and the powerful light element magic gone, the other malicious ghosts began to charge towards the other Mages. The poisonscale wolves and the poisonous ironthread serpents also pounced towards the remaining four Mages.
The four Mages panicked, they didn’t expect the Old Mage to die just like that. They were confident that as long as the Old Mage lived, even if they couldn’t kill the malicious ghosts, they could still escape. Now that the Old Mage was dead, their opportunity to escape was gone.
While the four Mages were still fl.u.s.tered, the ghosts and the beasts seized the opportunity as their roared and charged over. With the cooperation between the ghosts and the beasts, the four Mages were killed in less than ten minutes.
After the remaining Mages died, the other malicious ghosts proceeded to possess their bodies. At the same time, the beasts hid themselves in the darkness. This was because they could feel other people entering the area.
This time, the team that entered were the Warriors from Wild Academy. Each one of them were now carrying lamps as they flew forward.
Zhao Hai looked at the four Warriors and then sighed, “If they came a few minutes earlier, they might have been able to unite with the Mages. Even if they can’t kill the ghosts, it wouldn’t be a problem for them to escape. But now, they are already too late.” Laura and the other nodded. Then Laura turned to Zhao hai and said, “Brother Hai, will you make a move now?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Not immediately. If I do, then wouldn’t I just be telling them that I have been watching all this time? At the very least, they should get injured before I make a move.”
Laura nodded, then didn’t say anything else. The experience that Laura and the others gained wasn’t any less than Zhao Hai’s. They also had their own ideas regarding human nature. And as they grew together with Zhao Hai, they were wise enough to know that they didn’t need to be polite to their enemies.
Before long, the Warriors of the Wild Academy met with the malicious ghosts. Although the ghosts had completed their possession, they didn’t use any of the Mages’ magic. And with the Warriors being extremely cautious, the group of dark creatures weren’t given any chances to sneak attack. The only thing they could do now was to attack head-on.
The four Warriors had impeccable cooperation. Naturally, this was taught to them by their academy. Because of this, they were able to hold on amidst the attacks of the seven ghosts and 12 beasts.
However, the faces of the Warriors were quite ugly. They had just discovered that the Mages were all dead. Also, there weren’t four or five malicious ghosts, instead there were seven. And of the seven, six of them possessed the Mages. Not only that, there were also 12 powerful beasts. They couldn’t win against this much enemies, the only choice they have was to retreat.
One of the four Warriors suddenly said, “Wu Quan, Lan Jiang, you two block them while me and Fei Ni attack them with our sword qi. We’ll try killing two of them at a time as we retreat. The situation here is much worse than what Instructor told us. We aren’t their opponents.”
The three other Warriors nodded. After that, two of them began to take their weapons out and blocked the ghosts and the beasts. Meanwhile, the other two also took their weapons out as they readied themselves to launch their attack.
The latter two’s aura got stronger and stronger as the swords in their hands shone. Then the two gave a shout as they waved their sword to cut the nearby poisonscale wolves.
The two poisonscale wolves just pounced. With their body still in mid-air, the wolves were unable to dodge. The sword qi slashed through the wolves as though they were paper. The wolves were immediately cut in half. They gave a pitiful sound as they hit the ground, their internal organs spewing out of their bodies. They only twitched for a few moments before they became motionless.
This wasn’t the end, the Warriors wielded their swords once more as they killed another two poisonscale wolves, two malicious ghosts, and one poisonous ironthread serpent.
This attack caused the remaining malicious ghosts and beasts to be afraid. The dark creatures stopped their attack before retreating to the dark, plunging the cave into silence once more.
Chapter 1098 – The End of the Exam
The Warriors weren’t naive enough to think that the ghosts and the beasts wouldn’t try to attack them again. On the contrary, the ghosts and beasts were now more dangerous since they were hidden.
The two Warriors that sent the sword qi were now very pale. They had just exhausted themselves and would need to recover for some time.
The group’s leader made a decision, “Let’s retreat immediately. The Adam Academy’s Mages are dead. Also, there are more enemies than reported. We cannot kill them all by ourselves. We need to head back and look for instructor.”
The others immediately agreed. The two Warriors who didn’t send sword qi proceeded to protect their two weakened comrades.
Seeing that the situation had reached a crucial point, Zhao Hai stood up before turning his head to Laura and the others and said, “It’s my time to enter the stage. Everyone, witness my performance!”
Laura and the others gave a warm applause, causing Zhao Hai to laugh before his figure flashed and left the s.p.a.ce. The next moment, Zhao Hai appeared back in the tunnel at a distance away from the battlefield. Naturally, he wasn’t stupid enough to appear directly in the middle of the fight. That would make people think that he was just watching all this time. Therefore, Zhao Hai appeared at a distance and pretended to have just arrived at the scene.
When Zhao Hai appeared in the tunnel, he immediately released light element magic. His light element magic was released using Magic Theory. However, this magic wasn’t an area attack. Instead, the light was concentrated, as though it was a searchlight from a lighthouse.
After that, Zhao Hai roared as he flew straight into the battle. His speed was very fast. Currently on Zhao Hai’s hand was his blood ghost staff. He lifted his staff as the magic formation directed the light magic forward. The light looked like a sharp sword that was plunged into the darkness.
Zhao Hai made sure to have the Warriors notice his arrival, hoping that the Warriors would stop retreating and deal with the enemy together with him. With this, there would be no suspicions placed on him. If the Warriors left, then the Adam Academy might doubt his claims.
With how huge Zhao Hai’s move was, it was impossible for the Warriors to not notice him. Seeing the glaring beam of light, the Warriors immediately looked for its source. It didn’t take long for them to know who was coming over.
There were three academies partic.i.p.ating in this trial. And the Adam Academy’s six students were already dead. The only person that has yet to show themselves was the Ashley Academy’s sole partic.i.p.ant.
With this thought, the Warriors couldn’t help but hesitate. Then one of them said, “Khan, what do we do now? Should we keep retreating?” Khan looked at the beam of light and said, “That’s light magic, it should be able to suppress the Undead. We can use this opportunity to fight alongside him. If we retreat now, we will fail the exam.”
The other Warriors agreed, so all four of them stopped before they roared and joined the battle. Wu Qian and Lan Jiang put Fei Ni and Khan in the middle so that the two could recover their strength as soon as possible.
Zhao Hai was very fast. He also pretended to miss the Warriors’ location. After the Warriors roared, he immediately adjusted his course and flew towards them at the quickest speed.
Before long, Zhao Hai arrived where the Warriors were. Zhao Hai also discovered that the malicious ghosts and the beasts had already encircled them.
Zhao Hai looked at the Warriors and smiled as he gave his greetings, “So its our friends from Wild Academy. What happened? I just sensed a disturbance in the energy of this place. Did you manage to find the malicious ghosts?”
Khan and the others returned the greeting. Then Khan answered, “We’ve seen Mister Zhao Hai. Yes, we’ve met with the malicious ghosts. They’ve already dealt with the Adam Academy. At this time, it’s possible that we have been surrounded. Mister should be careful.”
Zhao Hai wrinkled his brows as he said, “Really? I didn’t expect malicious ghosts to be that strong.”
Khan quickly answered, “Mister, there aren’t just five malicious ghosts, but seven. There are also 12 poisonous beasts. But now, their numbers have been reduced to five ghosts and seven beasts. The others have already been killed by us.”
Zhao Hai said ‘oh’ then he laughed as he waved his hand. A magic formation appeared on his magic staff. This magic formation caused a huge explosion of white light. This explosion illuminated a kilometer of area. Naturally, this illumination revealed the presence of ghosts and beasts.
After seeing the forms of the ghosts and beasts, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but laugh as he said, “You dark creatures truly have skills. But unfortunately, it’s time for you to die.”
Appearing in Zhao Hai’s had was a magic formation. This formation was different than the light element one he used earlier. When the formation was released, the dark energy not being hit by the light beam became absorbed into the formation. The formation got darker and darker before it became extremely black. Then Zhao Hai waved his hand, causing the formation to enlarge and cover the malicious ghosts. While the malicious ghosts were struggling to get free, Zhao Hai muttered, “Receive!”
Just as his voice fell, the magic formation sucked everything into the middle. Khan and the others saw several shadows going out of the bodies of the Mages. Without the ghosts possessing them, the bodies of the Mages collapsed to the ground.
This was dark element magic. Dark element magic wasn’t strong by itself, but after pa.s.sing through formations, their strength multiplied. Because of this, the ghosts were easily sucked in and sent to the s.p.a.ce.
Just as the group of malicious ghosts entered the s.p.a.ce, a prompt was immediately heard, “Mutant Dark Element Undead detected. Undead has a large tendency for violence. Sensing negative sentiment towards the s.p.a.ce. Subduing. Undead has been subdued.”
Zhao Hai wasn’t too surprised about this prompt. As long as the ghosts were sent to the s.p.a.ce, then there was no way for them to escape.
After dealing with the malicious ghosts, Zhao Hai turned his attention to the remaining beasts. Then he said, “You b.a.s.t.a.r.ds also want to join in on the fun right? Then you might as well join them!”
Zhao Hai waved his hand, causing five formations to appear in front of him. As these formations appeared, the dark energy in the surroundings began to move once again. And this time, the suction speed was much greater. In a blink of an eye, the formations turned pure black. Zhao Hai looked at the formations and then said, “Dark being, tear the s.p.a.ce open!”
After Zhao Hai spoke, the five formations broke the s.p.a.ce. Shortly after that, an ancient savage roar was heard from the rift. Then two claws grabbed the rift, ripping a bigger hole. The spatial rift grew bigger and bigger. It was as if the world itself was being torn apart.
Then a head emerged from the rift.
The huge head was covered with black scales. It had a huge mouth enough to swallow ten people in one bite. It had teeth that seem like it could tear into one’s soul. This caused the head to send chills to a person. The eyes on the head had slits, appearing both cold and ruthless.
The huge head looked around before fully emerging out of the rift. After going through, it issued a loud cry, causing pressure on the beasts. The beasts couldn’t help but cower in its presence. They seem to be panicking at the sight of the monster.
Zhao Hai recognized the being at first glance. It turned out to be a Black Dragon. It looked similar to the dragons in the Ark Continent. However, the strength of this dragon was much stronger.
This dragon doesn’t seem to be able to fly. From its looks, Zhao Hai thought that it was a T-rex. It was about 15 meters tall. It had two short front limbs. However, its legs had sharp looking claws. All of these plus its st.u.r.dy-looking tail demonstrated the creature’s strength.
After the black dragon faced upwards and roared, its cold eyes turned towards the posionscale wolves and poisonous ironthread serpents. Then the dragon opened its mouth, breathing black flames towards the beasts.
The posionscale wolves immediately turned around and ran. However, the black dragon didn’t give them the opportunity to escape. It immediately charged over and overtook the wolves. Then it swung its tail, sending the wolves flying into the air. On the other hand, the poisonous ironthread serpents slithered towards a nearby tunnel to get out.
Khan and the others were looking at these events in a daze. They didn’t expect a single person to deal with the wolves and the serpents. Wasn’t this too easy?
In fact, they weren’t aware that after the poisonscale wolves were sent flying, Zhao Hai opened a spatial rift and caught them, sending them to the s.p.a.ce. The same outcome happened to the poisonous ironthread serpents. As the serpents ran into the tunnels, they didn’t expect a spatial rift waiting for them. Without even recognizing it, the serpents went towards the s.p.a.ce.
Seeing that the beasts had been taken care of, Zhao Hai gave a satisfied nod. Then he waved his hand, causing a spatial rift to appear, taking the black dragon in.
After he received the black dragon, Zhao Hai turned towards Khan and the other. He smiled faintly and said, “Everyone, I think there’s nothing else left here. I’ll be taking my leave first.”
Just as his voice fell, he heard a voice, “The exam has been completed. Students, please return to your own vehicles.”
Zhao Hai gave one last nod to Khan and the others before flying towards his car. It didn’t take long before he reached his car, rode it, and proceeded to leave the place.
When Zhao Hai left, Khan and the others let out a long breath. Wu Quan turned to Khan and said, “Big Brother Khan, that Zhao Hai, how could he be that strong?”
Khan sighed, then he said, “By his present standard, he should still be a level 1 Mage. However, he can use more than one element. If it came to combat power, he is more powerful than most people at his level. Things aren’t looking so good.”
Wu Quan said, “Big Brother? Isn’t the exam finished?”
Khan replied, “The Wild Academy and the Ashely Academy are in good terms with each other while the Adam Academy and the Ashley Academy are on bad terms. In this exam, all of the Adam Academy’s Mages died. Although Zhao Hai and us aren’t related to their deaths, I’m afraid the Adam Academy wouldn’t believe our testimonies. Even if we are safe inside our Academies, we might be met with revenge once we left. This would bring us endless trouble. It would be great if we could store their bodies inside a spatial item. This way, we might be able to find a way out of this.”
Wu Quan and the others understood what Khan wanted to do. However, when they ascended, they had already left their spatial item behind. They didn’t have one right now.
Lan Jiang looked at the Mage corpses and then said, “Big Brother Khan, maybe those Mages have spatial items on them. Let’s search their bodies first before we go back.”
Those words made Khan nod. He said, “Right, I forgot about that. Go and search their bodies.” Then the group flew towards the Mages. After they searched the bodies, they were able to get three pieces of spatial equipment. The group immediately placed the corpses inside a spatial item. Then they left the area and returned to their car.
As they flew, Wu Quan turned to Khan and said, “Big Brother Khan, since we’ve decided to join the Northwild Camp, how about we take two of these spatial items for ourselves? Let’s return only one of them to the Adam Academy.”
Khan shook his head and said, “We can’t touch these spatial items. I’m almost sure that they’re registered with the Adam Academy. If we take it, they would only doubt us. We’ll hand everything over. Rest a.s.sured, after searching the Machine Field’s network, it seems like spatial items aren’t that rare. We can buy some if we earn some money.”
Wu Quan and the others nodded. They agreed to this decision. When they returned to the car, the vehicle began to fly.
After a couple of hours, everyone returned to the tunnel city. Margaret and the others were already waiting for them there.
Seeing that Zhao Hai was safe, Margaret began to relax. Not long after Zhao Hai arrived, Khan and the others also came back.
After Zhao Hai gave Margaret his greetings, he stood behind her and didn’t say anything. And while Khan was greeting his instructor, he also whispered a couple of words to him. Upon hearing Khan, the instructor’s face couldn’t help but change. He turned to Khan and said, “Are you telling the truth?”
Khan nodded and said, “It’s true. These are their spatial items. There are three all in all.” Then he handed the three items to the instructor.
Seeing the spatial items on his hands, the instructor sighed before walking towards Jin Changji.
Chapter 1099 – You’re Lying!
Jin Changji was currently feeling strange. The Wild Academy and the Ashley Academy’s students had already returned. However, the Adam Academy’s students had yet to arrive.
He didn’t believe that the Adam Academy’s students would have no survivors. After all, there were six of them, how could none of them survive?
Instructor Dan went to Jing Changji and said, “There’s no need for Instructor Jin to wait. The Adamy Academy’s students wouldn’t be returning.” Then he handed over the three spatial items.
Jin Changji stared at the spatial items in Instructor Dan’s hand. His expression changed as he said, “Why do you have their spatial items? Did the Wild Academy kill them?”
Instructor Dan didn’t expect Jin Changji to turn hostile this soon. He coldly snorted before taking out six corpses. These corpses belonged to the Adam Academy’s six Mages.
After releasing the corpses, Dan looked at Jin Changji and said, “Surnamed Jin, don’t just bark like a wild dog. Act like your position. You aren’t an idiot, you can look at their injuries to see how they died. Take these three spatial items, my Northwild family has a lot of them.” Then he slammed the spatial rings into a nearby table. It might even be said that he embedded the rings into the table. One could see from this point how strong Dan really was.
Seeing Dan’s conduct, Jin Changji’s eyes couldn’t help but shrink. But he just coldly snorted before turning his head to the six Mages.
After carefully looking at the corpses, Jin Changji’s expression sank. This was because the injuries seen on the bodies indicated that they had been killed by malicious ghosts and beasts. And there wasn’t any indication of tampering.
This wasn’t the first time Jin Changji brought students to an exam. Therefore, he could see injuries caused by ghosts and beasts.
After some time, Jin Changji stood up slowly. He looked at Dan and said, “What happened?”
Although Dan was mad at him, that was only a momentary anger. Even so, he didn’t look at Jin Changji’s face and just answered, “There aren’t just five ghosts in the tunnel, but seven ghosts and twelve beasts. It was your team that met them first. As for the state of the battle, Khan and the others only arrived when it was finished. When they sensed fighting, they immediately headed over. But when they arrived, the battle was already over. At that time, the six bodies had already been possessed by the ghosts. Khan’s team was also surrounded by the ghosts and the beasts. They have no choice but to retreat. And just as they retreated, Zhao Hai appeared, killing all the ghosts and beasts.”
Jin Changji quietly listened to Dan. Not only him, Margaret also took note of Dan’s words. Upon hearing that Zhao Hai appeared and killed the ghosts and beasts, Margaret’s eyes shone with happiness. She turned her head to Zhao Hai and said, “Zhao Hai, is Instructor Dan telling the truth?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “When I appeared, the friends from Wild Academy had already killed five beasts and two ghosts. Therefore, I only killed five ghosts and seven beasts. As for what happened before, I haven’t seen anything.”
Jin Changji looked at Zhao Hai and said, “How could you possibly kill five ghosts and seven beasts? You’re lying!”
Zhao Hai just coldly snorted and didn’t answer. At this moment, Khan lightly coughed and said, “Instructor Jin, Mister Zhao Hai can certainly kill five five ghosts and seven beats. This is because he is already a level 1 Mage.”
Jin Changji and Margaret who were listening to Khan couldn’t help but gawk. Margaret felt pleasantly surprised at Zhao Hai. She turned to him and said, “Zhao Hai, are you really a level 1 Mage?” Jin Changji and Dan might not know how significant Zhao Hai’s current level was, but Margaret did. Zhao Hai had just ascended last month. One month after ascending to the Machine Field, he was already a level 1 Mage. If others knew about this, it would certainly cause huge waves.
Not even waiting for Zhao Hai to answer, Jin Changji interfected, “Stop talking nonsense. How could he possibly be a level 1 Mage? I don’t believe it.” Then his hand moved, causing a ten layer formation to appear. Immediately after the formation appeared, a huge sword appeared and pierced towards Zhao Hai.
Margaret was able to see Jin Changji’s movement. However, when she noticed it, the sword had already attacked. She just stopped thinking and went in front of Zhao Hai. Then she waved her hand, summoning a five-layer formation. The formation immediately activated, causing a water shield to appear.
With Jin Changji’s sudden action, Margaret could only use this method to deal with it. A five-layer formation versus a ten-layer formation, their difference was a level. In this case, Margaret’s water shield could only block the sword for a moment.
It didn’t take long for the sword to cut through the water shield. WIth a force as strong as lightning, the sword cut towards Margaret. Seeing this development, Jin Changji’s face turned pale as a corpse. But it was already impossible to stop the magic at this time.
Jin knew very well that Margaret wasn’t just any other Instructor. Her true status wasn’t simple. If he really killed Margaret here, then even the Adam Family wouldn’t be able to save him.
At this time, a fiery red formation suddenly appeared in front of the sword, melting it slowly.
Fire magic just so happens to subdue Jin Changji’s sword. Additionally, fire element magic was inherently strong. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have been able to deal with the giant sword.
Repulsion between the five elements was also relative. Even if water counters fire, pouring a cup of water over a mountain of fire was still a useless move. At that time, it would be the fire repelling the water.
Seeing his sword being blocked, jin Changji couldn’t help but feel relieved. But at the same time, he could also see that the fire magic came from a five-layer formation. Moreover, it can be seen that this magic shield was made by Zhao Hai.
This discovery made Jin Changji’s expression sink. He can now affirm that Zhao Hai was truly a level 1 Mage. Moreover, it seems like his spiritual force was strong. Level 1 Mages were usually unable to melt his sword. Although the sword was blocked by Margaret’s five-layer water shield, its energy was mostly preserved after piercing through. At least, the sword should still have seven-tenths of its power. Nevertheless, Zhao Hai’s fire shield was still able to block it. This meant that Zhao Hai’s five-layer shield was able to block a seven-layer sword’s strength. This was enough to show Zhao Hai’s strength.
Margaret also responded at this time, her pale face turned towards Jin Changji and said, “Jin Changji, good, good. You actually dared to attack here. It seems like we’ll see more deaths today!”
After she said that, she began to wave her staff. Upon seeing Margaret’s expression, Jin Changji knew that if she went through with this, things wouldn’t turn out great. He immediately bowed and said, “Instructor Margaret, you misunderstand. Please, calm down. Please calm down. I didn’t do it on purpose!”
When she saw Jin Changji’s helpless expression, Margaret decided to stop. Then she said, “What? You believe it now?”
Jin Changji smiled bitterly and said, “I believe it. I just didn’t expect the Ashley Family to send a level 1 Mage for an exam. Instructor Margaret, how many months has it been since he ascended? How did he get so strong?”
The reason why Jin Changji asked this was because people who came to Tyro Planet for the exams were ascenders who had ascended for three or four months. And generally, three to four-month ascenders had yet to reach level 1.
Margaret looked at Jin Changji, she seemed to be dissatisfied with how things turned out. But she still replied, “Five months. He’s the most talented genius that Ashley Academy had in the past ten years. Therefore, we had him partic.i.p.ate in the exam a bit later. You’re unlucky. If he met your students sooner, then those ghosts might not have killed them. I really didn’t expect the ghosts to increase at this time.”
After she spoke, everyone turned their attention to Sim. After all, it was Sim that gave them information about the ghosts. If Zhao Hai wasn’t strong enough, then n.o.body would have survived the exam.
Although lower realm ascenders still needed some training, it was undeniable that they were geniuses. Especially those like Zhao Hai and Khan’s group. After they develop in the Machine Field for several years, it would be possible for them to become intermediate level experts, capable of handling important matters. So if they died in this place, the losses incurred would be huge. This situation wasn’t something that Sim would permit.
Receiving the gazes from Margaret and the others, Sim immediately knew what they were thinking. He couldn’t help but force a smile and said, “Everybody, you should know that I wouldn’t permit such things from happening. We really aren’t aware that there would be that much danger. We’ve already known each other for many years, you already know that I wouldn’t dare harm ascenders from the lower realms.”
Margaret and the others nodded upon hearing Sim’s words. Sim certainly wouldn’t harm ascenders since he was an ascender himself. It has been 30 years since Sim had ascended. And he was also considered as someone with talent. It was only when he suffered a severe wound that his strength stopped progressing any further. In the end, he could only become an official responsible for exams. Because of his origin, Sim held special sentiments towards fellow ascenders. It was impossible for him to cause them harm in this exam.
