After the announcement of compet.i.tion h.e.l.l broke loose.
Every training center in westblood started to book full, not only from blood but a training center from other cities also completely booked.
The people started to hunt monsters like crazy for training and news of many casualties could be heard.
Everywhere I go, I could feel the charged atmosphere and many fights occurred in the city that, more than normal police could be seen patrolling the street.
The environment inside my training center even become worst especially for our two Specialist stage evolver as the third one level up Corporal stage two months ago.
Every training cla.s.s became extra harder and especially Combat cla.s.s.
Where Corporal stage evolvers favorite hobby is go beat us Specialist grade first, in one of the newly introduced group fights by our instructor.
The corporal stage developers first beat us Specialist stage first as a ritual before fighting amongst themselves.
Combat cla.s.s had become h.e.l.l for me but it also stretched me to my limit and I've discovered new strength to myself.
Every training cla.s.s had taught me something important and help me tremendously in improving my strength.
One month ago we had completed our basic exercise of Combat style and started to learn real combat moves of combat style.
I've only learned basic moves this past month but they are better than the way I used to fight without fighting style.
Not only I've made a qualitative change in my fighting power but I also created the sixth seal of supreme combat exercise, which also increased my strength for a bit.
In these three months, many good things also happened back home and to my friends.
My father had chosen an interesting subject for his research thesis for Grade 2 doctor course.
He chose Supreme Combat Exercise and what is more unbelievable that in three months he had created the 7th seal of exercise and he said he is very close to creating his eighth seal.
I was utterly shocked when I knew this, I know personally how hard is to create every new seal.
Circulation of every move is painful, it is literally self-torture.
My mother said that my father had become near fanatic about his research and whenever he circulates supreme combat exercise, he would connect a bunch of machines of to himself.
That's right my father circulating supreme combat exercise, not for gaining strength but to gain data for his research.
When I ask him how he able to deal with the pain of circulation, he just said that the pain is immense but it paled compared to the pain he felt after eating the mystical medicine.
The is also another which is most important, he said that every time he created the seal, he gets precious data and to gain the precious data, feeling pain for few hours a day is nothing.
He said his next is a target is to create ten seals, that when the qualitative change occurs in seals of exercise.
Gaining the data about that qualitative change will really help his research. He is really a fanatic about academics! I thought with a sigh.
My mother health is fine, so is baby growing inside her, that made me very relieved as I kept checking with her every other day.
My friends from the hometown are also doing very well especially Ellen who is selected for elite training two months ago.
A week ago she said, she will fight me when we meet next time and she is confident that I won't able to beat her.
I was both happy and jealous when I met Jill, a few days ago.
She had leveled up to corporal level and won't be partic.i.p.ating in compet.i.tions, she said that her aunt is training her for the entrance exam of the Super elite.
She even let me in on inside news that low-level adventure like me will never able to know.
She said that organizations are only permitting to enter compet.i.tion who had bonded this year for the specialist stage.
As for other stages is also somewhat same, they are only permitting those who had had level up to their stage this year.
This restriction only applied for elites, normal members are left to their choice.
So, Jill said that my most powerful opponents would be low level elite and Mid-level elites who were hiding among common member and hadn't advanced their members.h.i.+p.
Three months had been pa.s.sed since I registered for compet.i.tion and tomorrow is a preliminary test of compet.i.tion.
The two preliminary tests are two select top 800 among specialist grade as they were the most number of partic.i.p.ants in the compet.i.tion.
The preliminary test is used to throw away excessive dregs and select top 800.
Those top 800 will fight by qualifier basis, those win to advance and those who lose will be disqualified.
The Compet.i.tion of Specialist stage will last for three days including tomorrow.
I am now reading the profile of the hundred people who had a chance to reach the top 10.
This list made by the quite reputed site and two and three people from their list would always end up in top 10.
As I read the profiles of compet.i.tors one by one, I've come to know they are very powerful and this is not the full data as everyone always keeps their trump cards hidden.
If I compare myself to them, I would probably fit in the middle order of this list but this is not enough for me.
I have to reach top 3 at least and I am confident if I tried my hardest, there is a minute chance that I will able to reach the top 3.
I have to keep holding off that minute chance and climb to the position for the top three.
After reading each and everything about my compet.i.tor, I closed off the projection and turned off the lamp by my bed.
Today is very important and I wanted to partic.i.p.ate in test fully rested, so, no mistakes could happen.
