The Hundred Treasures Academy's teaching objective was that the number of soldiers and their quantity of essence was not high. Thus, every teacher was only allowed to accept a single student every year. The university's term system was four years. In other words, every single teacher only ensured that there were only four students under their tutelage. This was the only way to maintain the reputation of being the number one academy on the main road.
It had taken Xiao Yao and Dan Teng a month to travel here. During this one month, Xiao Yao had also learned a lot of knowledge and local customs that only belonged to the special ability world from this teacher. He also had a rough understanding of the powers of the special ability world. What surprised Xiao Yao the most was that the ruler of the "motherland" was a family with one of the most powerful superpowers.
However, no matter how Xiao Yao tried to persuade him about the history of the Xiao family, the teacher who gave Xiao Yao a headache just smiled without saying a word. Xiao Yao was so angry that he felt an itch in his heart, and was even angry at the thought of "forcing his confession" several times. However, after considering the identities of the two, their mouths were not affected by their feverish minds.
In the end, when Xiao Yao decided to give up, Dan Teng grinned and said a few words of Xiao Xin's instruction, "The skills passed down through the family ancestors are fated to be yours, but before you become a superpower master, don't even think about it."
Xiao Yao was depressed for several days because every time Xiao Yao changed the topic, the old fox would immediately put on a harmless smile and not say a single word. In the end, Xiao Yao hatefully gave Dan Teng a nickname, called the old fox with a headache.
Since the sky was already dark, Teng Qingshan and Xiao Yao, who had to stop to camp, began to search for firewood separately.
Xiao Yao, who was sitting on the ground, stared blankly at the bonfire in front of him. He was chewing on a dry steamed bun and could not help but miss the main ingredient that he had eaten in his previous life — instant noodles.
Xiao Yao was about to ask for guidance, but as soon as the words left his mouth, Dan Teng, who was standing by the side, leaped up without any warning. He then pointed his index finger at his lips, indicating for Xiao Yao to be quiet.
Due to his wild thoughts, Xiao Yao didn't notice anything amiss. However, at this moment, the bedsheet suddenly reminded him. The superpower within his body immediately rushed out, causing "Sha Sha" sounds to resound in his ears.
The reason why this place was called the Apocalypse Forest was because there were a large number of beasts within the forest that could use their Discipline. Even some of the more powerful experts didn't dare to venture too deeply into the forest.
Sure enough, after a few minutes, the grass shook. A wild wolf with multicolored fur and a big mouth walked towards the two of them, one step at a time. Greed bloomed in his small eyes, and disgusting saliva dripped from his chin all the way to the ground.
A mutated beast — Silver Wolf, a Yellow Rank mutated beast. The most powerful one could reach Green Rank, and it was the only wolf that liked to go solo. However, once the Wolf King was summoned, the Jinyi Wolves nearby would definitely hear the news and would arrive.
Usually, at the edge of the Apocalypse Forest, there would only be a few Red or Orange ranked magic beasts. However, this was nothing but a surprise. The strength of a Gold Wolf was equivalent to that of a human Adept, and was not enough to burden the peak Adept Dan Teng in the slightest.
When he was a delinquent in his previous life, it wasn't that Xiao Yao hadn't fought in a group, nor had he never killed anyone before. However, he still felt fear towards the concept of wild beasts from the bottom of his heart. After all, in the documentary segment of the television, ferocity was a characteristic of wolves. With the sound of swallowing saliva, his feet instinctively went behind Dan Teng.
After seeing all these, Dan Teng did not find it strange. He immediately took the initiative to welcome them, "Watch carefully. Teacher will give you a combat lesson today."
The reason why strange beasts were so terrifying was because after they had reached Green Rank, they would gradually develop a intelligence that was not inferior to that of a human. However, this Yellow Rank Gold rank wolf in front of them clearly did not possess this intelligence.
Following the confrontation between Dan Teng and the others, the entire clearing descended into a strange silence. The only sounds that could be heard were the crackling sounds of burning wood.
At a certain moment, the Gold Wolf's impatient mouth slightly opened as it let out a low growl without any forewarning. A strange energy, with Jin Lang's body as the center, spread out in all directions.
As soon as he saw the wolf use its ability, the power that was surging around his body instantly erupted. A thin barrier appeared around his ears as he quickly moved his feet. In the blink of an eye, he appeared beside the wolf. The speed was so fast that Xiao Yao had no doubt that even if it was just a bullet, he would be able to easily dodge it.
"Thunder Extinguishing Hand!"
In the next moment, before the Frost Wolf could react, Dan Teng's left hand released a resplendent green light. With the sound of the wind breaking, it pierced through the heart of the Gold Wolf as if it was a dried twig. Merely by that single action, his eyes that were filled with greed instantly turned into ashes.
The strength of a superpower was that it could change a person's physique. With the assistance of a special skill, both attack and defense could produce unimaginable results. As for the unorthodox Heart Conducting Technique, it was able to control the hearts of people, causing them to feel fear from the sound of the wind.
This was the first time Xiao Yao saw such a powerful master, and his blood was boiling. In the past, Xiao Xin had only sent him to learn special abilities because of the bet, but from the bottom of his heart, he was truly unwilling.
Now that Xiao Yao had witnessed the true power of Disciplines, he truly wanted to learn them. This was because an evil thought emerged in his heart — a hooligan knows martial arts, and no one can stop it.
However, how much longer was Xiao Yao's excitement going to last before he felt the sky spin and his entire body fall to the ground with a bang. It turned out that Jin Lang's low growl contained some low-leveled Heart Conducting Technique effects.
As Xiao Yao fainted, he didn't know how much time had passed. He only knew that when he opened his eyes again, the sky was already bright.
After experiencing the battle at night, the look in Xiao Yao's eyes when he looked at Dan Teng changed drastically. It was now filled with respect. When he inquired about it, it had also evolved from the state where he had come here at his whim, becoming a person who thirsted for knowledge. After all, every man yearned to become a powerful expert and loved the feeling of their blood boiling.
Another month had passed. Xiao Yao, whose knowledge had greatly increased, had followed Dan Teng to Sweet Town. There was a mouthful of sweet well water in the town, which was why it was called Sweet Town. As long as the two of them passed through this small town and walked a few dozen miles, they would reach the sphere of influence of the Hundred Treasures Academy.
Since they were already here, they were in no hurry to take a seat in a restaurant that was similar to the western restaurant and intended to have a snack.
However, just as the two of them ordered their dishes, their thoughts were attracted by the discussion at the side: "Have you guys heard that a new religion has appeared in the north recently?!"
"Are you talking about the Discipline Hall?"
