Chapter 176: Three Choices
In the dorms, Ye Mu and the others were waiting for the news.
When Nangong Jing brought Lu Ze and Lin Ling in, they immediately got up.
“Greetings, Teacher Nangong!”
Nangong Jing nodded at the polite bunch. They were much better than Lu Ze. They weren’t that naughty.
She smiled. “I believe you guys know about the spirit metal mine on this planet, right?”
Everyone nodded. “Yes.”
“The battlefield here will be dangerous. There are quite some core martial states and aperture opening states here. It’s no longer a trial ground for new students. On this planet, there are only third-year and fourth-year students. Even the second-year students didn’t come.”
“But this is your test planet, so in order to ensure the following test, I’ll give you three options.”
“First, go to the 26th planet and do the entrance test with the students there. That way, your credits and results will still be based on the missions.”
“Second, stay on this planet and do the logistics. That way, your credits and results will be double the original, but it’s also more dangerous than before.”
Then, Nangong Jing said seriously, “The third option is that you guys enter the battlefields of different regions. However, the battlefield is cruel. Anything can happen. I don’t really recommend you to choose this option, but I will still put out this option for you. You choose.”
Hearing this, Ye Mu and the others fell silent for a while. Xuan Yuqi asked, “Teacher Nangong, did the prodigies of the prodigy barrack of the same year as us enter such battles?”
Nangong Jing was a little stunned after hearing the words. She then nodded with a smile. “Although the situation isn’t too similar, they’ve been through wars of certain scales.”
Nangong Jing looked at Lin Ling. “Lin Ling went through wars of certain scales a few months ago.”
Other than Lu Ze, everyone else looked at Lin Ling with surprise.
Lu Ze had heard her say before that abstruse martial state really was nothing on the battlefield. There were core martial states everywhere. In large wars, there were even aperture opening states.
The battlefield was a meat grinder. Even aperture opening states can die, not to mention spirit martial state and abstruse martial state?
Lin Ling went through h.e.l.l to survive.
That’s why her improvement was that huge.
Thus, the eyes of Ye Mu and the others became firm.
Xuan Yuqi said first, “Teacher Nangong, I choose the third.”
They had already been beaten by the prodigies at the prodigy barracks, and now, Lu Ze and Lin Ling were speeding far ahead of them. This made them feel more desperate.
They were all prodigies. No one wanted to admit defeat.
Sometimes, honor was more important than life.
Lu Ze and Lin Ling glanced at each other in surprise. Everyone chose the third option.
Lu Ze was confident in his power while Lin Ling had been through it. They didn’t expect these newcomers to the battlefield to have such courage.
Nangong Jing’s eyes flashed, and her facial expression became serious. Her dominant pressure slowly pressed against everyone.
For Lu Ze, this level of pressure was like a light breeze. For Lin Ling, it was similar to the pressure of the battlefield.
For Ye Mu and the others, this was their first time facing such pressure.
They felt like they were dried leaves in a sandstorm. They couldn’t control their own fate.
Their faces were pale, and their bodies were wobbly.
However, their eyes were firm, and they held onto their consciousness.
If they retreated now, they didn’t need to go on the battlefield.
Nangong Jing’s force lasted for a few minutes before taking it back.
She narrowed her eyes. “Not bad, I’ll let you pa.s.s.”
This level of pressure would only appear from aperture opening states on the battlefield.
Everyone was sweating and wobbling, but their eyes were bright. They breathed a sigh of relief and smiled.
This was training for their mind.
Real powerful people weren’t just made up of talent.
When one couldn’t dictate their life and didn’t have the will to fight until the end, then, he was just an ordinary person.
Nangong Jing smiled. She was very happy for her students.
Then, she looked at Lu Ze and Lin Ling. “I won’t’ ask you two. Lu Ze, you will be responsible for their safety.”
Lu Ze: “???”
He looked dazedly at Nangong Jing.
He was ready to go fight aperture opening state bosses, and yet, she told him this?
Even Lin Ling and the others were dazed. Lin Ling was planning to take Ye Mu and the others on the battlefield herself to do something.
Yet, Nangong Jing was leaving Lu Ze here?
Then, what about the blade demons?
They would be very pitiful!
Lu Ze’s mouth spasmed. He looked pitifully at Nangong Jing. “Teacher Nangong, you’re really not going to reconsider?”
He was very strong right now!
Why was he going to the abstruse martial state region??
To act cute??
Nangong Jing grinned and waved her fist. “Do you want to object? You can talk to my fist?”
Lu Ze’s mouth spasmed, and he quickly said, “I feel Teacher Nangong’s arrangements are too nice! Teacher Nangong is the embodiment of beauty and wisdom. You’re unparalleled!”
Lin Ling and the others: “…”
They looked speechlessly at Lu Ze. If Lu Ze stayed tough for a while, they would be able to see a pleasant scene.
What a pity!
Nangong Jing scratched her face with embarra.s.sment.
This was the first time someone without a brain complimented her like this.
She quickly waved her hand and said, “The human race isn’t at the stage where new students, like you, are needed on the battlefield to fight their powerful beings. If you do that, how would your senior schoolmates feel? How would the other soldiers feel?”
She patted Lu Ze’s shoulder, “The human race isn’t that weak yet. If there’s really an emergency, you decide.”
Lu Ze felt a little touched. Was she protecting him?
Since Nangong Jing said so, he would try to protect the soldiers.
Lu Ze nodded. “I understand.”
Nangong Jing smiled. “Then, I’m going first. The HQ will issue orders. The situation should be rather stable these few days, so just try to make some improvements. It won’t be so comfortable after a few days.”
Lu Ze and the others nodded.
Seeing Nangong Jing leave, everyone fell silent.
They were about to see a real war. The atmosphere was tense. Even Lu Ze felt a little nervous
Only Lin Ling was rather calmer as she had been through quite some battles.
Seeing this, Lin Ling said, “Yo, even our prodigy Lu Ze would be nervous?”
Lu Ze’s mouth spasmed.
He smiled. “The first time will always feel nerve-racking? After all, I’m a 2nd Lieutenant now, I have to take lead.”
Lin Ling: “…”
Ye Mu and the others: “….”
The atmosphere instantly fell silent. Lin Ling instantly regretted her words.
Lin Ling quickly changed the topic. “We’re about to go to the battlefield. I’ll teach everyone some useful techniques. It’ll help you survive better on the battlefield.”
Lu Ze and the others listened intently.
Although Lu Ze was strong, it would not hurt to learn these things.
Ye Mu and the others were very grateful to Lin Ling as these techniques were the most useful to them.
