''Knock knock!" A knock sounded on my door as I was making preparation to leave my apartment.
"Coming!" I shouted, seeing everything is alright, I opened my door and walked outside.
In front of me is pretty girl, she is lily, the only other Specialist stage evolver in my training cla.s.s.
"Are you ready?" asked Lily, "Ready as I ever could be!" I replied.
I am really feeling nervous, today is the two preliminary rounds of compet.i.tion, they will select the Top 100 today.
It is very tough to get in the top 1000, not only people from westblood but people from other cities are also coming.
"You really beat that Jeremy well yesterday!" I said smiling, hearing that lily's face turned red a little before tuning normally.
Little anger also could be also seen in her eyes as I said the word, Jeremy.
"I wanted to do that for weeks, just yesterday I got chance to that and I decided not to waste it!" said Lilly, an expression of satisfaction could be seen on her face.
In the training cla.s.s, we all had our tormenters, who like to gives an extra beating whenever they get a chance.
Jeremy is one of lily tormenter, he would always toy with her and then beat her whenever he got the chance.
I always thought that Jeremy is a little sick in mind, in the way he looked at girls, he can't beat Corporal stage girls in the cla.s.s as he is not powerful but he could beat lily.
She had been extremely humiliated by him in the ring many times but yesterday she beat him, she beat him till her heart's content, he had to shout surrender to stop the beating.
Lily was the peak of Specialist stage while that Jeremy was the initial level of Corporal stage.
Beating those level up above you is very hard especially when you can't use your abilities and skills.
She was able to that, she also worked very hard for that, I have seen training till midnight in varies training facilities and that is how when we started to talk.
She had worked hard but I had worked harder and I am sure, I can beat nearly all Initial Corporal stage evolvers but I didn't have a chance to show it in the ring.
I didn't know why but for this past month, the instructor had never paired me with Initial level Corporal stage worrier.
After one month, the instructor had started to pair me mid and peak level Corporal stage evolver, not only I but Lily also got that treatment.
It's just that her luck was good and the instructor paired her with Jeremy.
Fighting with mid and peak stage evolvers, I never got the chance to show my true power and I also hide as I also have someone who I have to beat badly and he is also in Corporal stage.
I don't want to spook him before I got the chance to beat him, he has cowardly nature from what I have seen and might surrender before fighting, to save himself the humiliation of beaten by a specialist stage.
We called a hover to take us toward the venue.
"Tring Tring!" my holowatch started to ring out.
"Hey, Ellen, what's up?" I asked, "Nothing, I just wanted to wish you luck for the preliminary round. Well, good luck" she said.
I had told her months ago that I was partic.i.p.ating in the compet.i.tion and we just talked a week ago.
"Well, thank you!" I replied to her well wish.
She cut the call after wis.h.i.+ng me luck for preliminary. She is the only person in my hometown, knew about me partic.i.p.ating in the compet.i.tion.
I could have told my parents to lie that I arrived at westblood but I know a single lie can lead to many lies and I am already lying to my parents about me being in westblood.
Soon we reached the venue and I got utterly shocked seeing that, it is grand, very grand.
Big gates, lavishly decorated waiting booth, tens of airs.h.i.+ps could be seen flying in the air flas.h.i.+ng advertis.e.m.e.nt and showing clips of most memorable fights of past compet.i.tion.
Hundreds of reporters could be seen interviewing people, there are also some celebrities could be seen performing on varies stages.
I've expected it to be lavished but not this lavish, I have heard from many people about how lavish this compet.i.tion is but I never guessed, they would this amazing.
The crowd of tens of thousands of people could be seen, most of them are specialist stage.
Some come alone while others come with their family and friends.
Lily and I both sat waiting for a booth.
I got the timetable of my first preliminaries yesterday, I have first test one and a half hour later and second test two hour after that.
1000 will be selected from the score Top 1000 scores from the addition of both tests scores.
"Don't worry, you will do fine!" I said when I saw Lily is fidgeting in her seat nervously.
Her test is just fifteen minutes later and she is feeling nervous due to pressure.
"I know but it is very important to me!" said Lily.
Lily also came from a small town like me with a big aspiration and for some reason, she hadn't get accepted in the organization.
She wants to do well in the compet.i.tion that she will get an offer from the organization and will get accepted as an elite member.
Everybody knows normal people can't get resources and training, that of members of organizations, no matter how much money they have.
It is already proven through statistics that most of the top level powerhouses came from organizations and very few free adventurers could able to become a powerhouse on their own.
"Don't worry, you can easily pa.s.s preliminary with your strength!" I said, she just smiled hearing that.
With Lily gone, I was left in the seal of unfamiliar people.
The tests had started from the morning and the detailed information of two preliminary rounds is available in detail.
I had already read it before coming here and reading the details of two round, I think I can get quite a good score if I gave my all.
Time pa.s.sed by and I was reading varies forums when I heard a commotion especially a shriek of girls.
'Its Magnus Wells, Magnus well….….' I heard loudly, screams of this name started to ring out around me.
As I heard this name, I understood the reason of shrieks.
Magnes Wells from Gla.s.s Knights, Is about the same age as me and bonded with his monster six months ago.
He is one of the most hopeful to reach the Top 10.
From the info, I know he is very strong, just two months after admitting in the Gla.s.s Knights, he got selected for Elite
He said to have two knight grade skill, one is offensive while other is defensive.
It is said that three months ago, he beat the Initial level Corporal Stage elite, who had three knight grade skill.
This all info made him quite hopeful to reach the top 10, even Top 3 is possible seeing his progress speed and as for the reason of those shrieks of girls.
This boy is beautiful, so beautiful that can even make beautiful women look down in shame.
