Bai Chen Feng commanded his subordinates to dig up every single Ink Jade Lingzi, storing the harvest within a storage ring…
Within the public square of the Royal Palace, a sea of people had gathered.
This was the recruitment spot of the Surging Wave Academia.
A few individuals who were wearing Surging Wave uniforms were standing on stage at the moment. A middle-aged man walked up to the front and addressed the packed crowd below the stage in a loud voice:
“Everyone, this one is called Kang Hao Ming, I am in charge of overseeing the recruitment of new students on behalf of Surging Wave Academia this time! Let me repeat the basic requirements for applying for our recruitment! All who are under a hundred years of age must: One, pass through the stellar rain without being stained by it. Two, to have reached Six-Star Spirit Master or above. Three, a special recruitment standard will be applied to any Spirit Chef who has reached Intermediate Rank or above, and the requirements would be reduced accordingly. Anyone who fulfills the above three criteria could come up to register and take part in the test! If you did not fulfill the requirements, please leave this area quickly so that you do not block others!”
His voice resounded like a huge bell and spread throughout the entire public square.
Commotion rippled through the observers as some left, creating space for others to come in.
Huan Qing Yan, Huan Jiu Li, as well as a few new applicants used that opportunity to reach the inner area of the crowd.
Most of the people present were there as observers, as those who could fulfill the recruitment criteria were not many.
Until now, only about a hundred people remained, that included individuals that came from the surrounding smaller kingdoms and towns.
Kang Hao Ming nodded his head, “Next, the remaining hundred odd individuals, stop moving!”
After he spoke, a drum-like magic equipment appeared in his hands, he faced the drum towards the sky and drummed on it; the sounds of drumming pierced through the clouds.
Huan Qing Yan was surprised and curious, what was he doing? It sounded like rumbling thunder! It was enough to cause people to become startled.
Some observers who had been visited the public square over the past few days got excited.
“Hahaha, it is raining again!”
“No wonder it is one of the Four Great Academies, that magic equipment is likely an Orange Rank as well, just a couple of drums from it and rain will fall.”
“Get lost, what do you guys know? That drum is called the Stellar Thunder Drum; the rain it called is not ordinary rain, it’s called Stellar Rain and it could test the Star Talent of people! When Stellar Rain falls on individuals, those who have Walnut Star and above talents would not be stained by it, while those whose talents were below Walnut Star would be thoroughly drenched!”
“That is not totally true as well, I heard that the Surging Wave Academia will also accept people with a strong resistance to water, even if you do not possess Walnut Star level talents, but if your water resistance is strong, it is possible that you can avoid becoming drenched and barely fulfill the requirements of being accepted.”
Sounds of discussion went by continuously; within the area where Huan Qing Yan and the other hundred plus participants were standing, a heavy shower poured down on them, yet outside this area, not a single drop of rain could be found.
Just as the rain was about to fall onto Huan Qing Yan, the pig spirit appeared on top of her and shook its body, causing the rain to slide off its body.
The spirit treasures of the other participants also appeared and used all sorts of methods to prevent the rain from reaching their bodies.
Huan Jiu Li was beside Huan Qing Yan. While no one was paying attention, Huan Qing Yan summoned her leaf spirit treasure.
The leaf spirit was initially sad that it had no chance to perform since the pig spirit was already summoned and was showing off, but after Huan Qing Yan communicated with it, it immediately followed her orders, and with a quick move of its body, it appeared on top of Huan Jiu Li’s head.
With a flirtatious twirl, it prevented all raindrops from reaching Huan Jiu Li’s head.
At this moment, all sorts of spirit treasures were being summoned; as the leaf spirit had a small size and being a Four Star that specialized in speed, its movements did not catch the attention of anyone, and even Huan Jiu Li himself did not notice that it was above him.
It came and left without a trace, quickly hiding within Huan Qing Yan’s sleeves after it had completed its mission.
Huan Qing Yan praised it through their mental connection, “Little Leaf, not bad!”
The pig spirit grunted unhappily as it wanted to be praised as well.
