Chapter 76: Genius Camp
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
“With your natural talent, as long as no accidents happen, entering the Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp shouldn’t be a problem.”
Lin Zhuo looked at Xiao Yu as he smiled.
“Entering isn’t difficult, but it isn’t easy to continue surviving in there… In the past thirty years, at least around a hundred genius disciples of our Aurora City’s three great clans have passed the test and entered the Genius Camp, but in the end not even one came out alive.”
Xiao Yu’s eyes flickered.
“You’ve all been speaking about some Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp for so long. What is it all about?”
Duan Ling Tian asked out the question that had been bothering him.
“You don’t know about the Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp?”
Lin Qin looked at Duan Ling Tian as if looking at an alien.
“Is it that strange?”
Duan Ling Tian was dazed.
After a moment, after hearing the explanation from Lin Zhuo, Duan Ling Tian finally knew what sort of place the Iron Blood Army’s Genius camp was.
The Iron Blood Army was a formidable army under the command of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, garrisoned in Iron Blood City at the border.
The officers of the Iron Blood Army are allegedly able to win one against ten fights with unstoppable might.
Whereas the Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp, on the other hand, was a standalone army camp that gathered young geniuses and was directly under the control of the Imperial Family.
In the Imperial City of the Crimson Sky Kingdom, there was a Paladin Academy.
As long as a student graduates from the academy, practically all of them are conferred with some sort of official appointment, respectively conferred an area of land, and end up becoming a noble.
At that time, they would need to say the word, and it would be enough to completely annihilate factions such as the three great clans of Aurora City.
In the entire Crimson Sky Kingdom, there were numerous small cities similar to Aurora City.
And factions similar to the three great clans were even more numerous.
Paladin Academy’s entry threshold was extremely high.
Besides disciples of the Royal Family and the outstanding disciples of the few eminent families being able to directly enter the academy, if an ordinary person wanted to enter the academy, then they would have to go through a brutal test just to obtain the qualifications to enter the academy.
The Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp was precisely one these numerous brutal tests.
The Genius Camp was a special training camp that lasted a year.
Only those who survive through the special training have the qualification to become one of the students at Paladin Academy.
In the past thirty years, there have been nearly a hundred disciples of Aurora City’s three great clans that passed the test and entered the Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp.
However, these people all died without exception in the course of the Genius Camp’s special training.
Hence, one can see the brutality of the Genius Camp.
Allegedly, only 10% of the young geniuses gathered by the Genius Camp are able to survive the year.
Since the beginning, there has been a saying: ‘Nine die, one lives, Genius Camp’.
A youth genius without a certain level of strength, confidence, and courage would fundamentally not dare to enter the Genius Camp.
Once you’ve entered the Genius Camp, you will be confronted with only two paths.
The first, die!
The second, achieve greatness!
“Imperial City…Paladin Academy.”
Duan Ling Tian started pondering.
The Duan Clan was at the Imperial City. According to what his mother said, the Duan Clan should be one of the eminent families in the Imperial City.
The Duan Clan, the day he went there would eventually come.
He only had one reason.
To take Duan Ling Xing’s life!
That day, Duan Ling Xing injured Ke Er and heavily injured Li Xuan, already completely enraging him.
“Maybe this is an opportunity.”
Duan Ling Tian’s eyes narrowed.
Maybe because of his experience having a military career in his previous life, it caused Duan Ling Tian to have a sense of intimacy towards the Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp.
Xiao Yu looked at Duan Ling Tian as he asked, “So how about it, Duan Ling Tian? Are you interested?”
“You and Meng Quan said earlier that the Genius Camp’s test was in half a year’s time?” Duan Ling Tian asked.
“Yes, but if you want to go, then you must leave one month in advance… Because from our Aurora City to Iron Blood City, even if you travel at top speed, you will still need to spend close to a month,” Xiao Yu slowly said.
“If you want to go, you can go with me and Meng Quan,” Xiao Yu continued.
Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded, but he didn’t say if he would go or not.
“No rush, there’s still another five months to go.”
Xiao Yu shook his head and smiled.
The group of youths and young girls enjoyed themselves and the banquet soon approached its end.
“Right, Duan Ling Tian, you cut off Li Qing’s finger today. Even if it can be connected back in time, at least half of his Dark Nether Finger will probably be crippled… Li Qing is brainless and thus there’s nothing to fear from him. But his grandfather, the Li Clan’s Grand Elder, is a prominent figure, so you must be careful.”
As Xiao Yu and his sister personally sent Duan Ling Tian’s group out of the Xiao Clan Estate, Xiao Yu had a serious expression as he warned Duan Ling Tian.
“Thanks for the warning.”
Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Looking at Duan Ling Tian’s group leaving from afar, Xiao Yu turned around to look at his sister, Xiao Lan.
Xiao Lan’s clear and beautiful eyes emitted a strange lustre.
Xiao Yu had a faint smile on his face.
“Big Brother, what are you talking about?”
Xiao Lan’s cheeks were bright red, then she turned around and left in embarrassment.
Xiao Yu laughed loudly. Every young girl thought of love, so he didn’t mind.
Moreover, Duan Ling Tian was indeed outstanding. It was no wonder that his sister, who had extremely high expectations, would be interested.
On the way back to Aurora City, Lin Zhuo suggested, “Duan Ling Tian, if you want to go to the Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp, I suggest you go after a year or two… You are different from Xiao Yu and Meng Quan. If they don’t go this time, then they’ll forever not have the chance. But you are just sixteen, even if you don’t go this time, you still have two more chances.”
The Iron Blood Army’s Genius Camp only recruited youth geniuses below the age of nineteen.
Duan Ling Tian lightly nodded but neither indicated consent nor dissent.
They quickly arrived at Aurora City.
“Duan Ling Tian, if you need any help in the future, you can look for us in the Lin Clan… As long as it’s within my ability, I will absolutely not decline.”
Before going their own ways, Lin Zhuo lightly smiled to Duan Ling Tian.
“Yeah, we are friends. You don’t have to be courteous to us,” Lin Qi said.
Duan Ling Tian smiled amicably to the two of them.
He could be considered to be friends with Lin Zhuo and Lin Qi. Their friendship was made from the exchange of blows.
They appreciated their own kind.
“You’ve broken through to the Core Formation Stage now. Can you treat my grandfather yet?”
On the way back to the Li Clan Estate, Li Fei gazed at Duan Ling Tian.
“Yes, my dear wifey.”
Duan Ling Tian answered in all seriousness.
“What’s a wifey?”
Li Fei was dazed.
“It means wife. It’s the way we say it in the small towns at the countryside.”
Only now did Duan Ling Tian realize he misspoke. In this world, there was no such thing as wifey.
“Pei! Who’s your wife?”
Li Fei blushed.
“My good wife, have you forgotten about our agreement?”
Duan Ling Tian extended his hand and wrapped his arm around Li Fei’s slender figure. A soft and supple feeling entered his hand.
Li Fei’s delicate figure trembled and was slightly stiff, but she didn’t resists as she lightly said, “Hurry up and let go; there are people ahead.”
Duan Ling Tian laughed loudly and stopped teasing her. “OK, tomorrow morning I’ll come to your house to see you and grandfather. I’m quite tired today, so I need to return and take a good night’s sleep.
After returning to the Li Clan Estate and sending Li Fei back home, only then did Duan Ling Tian return home.
At the moment he entered the courtyard, he noticed the young girl sitting in front of a table with an exhausted appearance. She was dozing off…
The table was filled with food.
Duan Ling Tian felt an ache in his heart. He could guess that Ke Er had most certainly waited for him the entire night.
Ke Er heard some sounds and rubbed her eyes in a daze, then she abruptly stood up in shock and brought Duan Ling Tian to the table. “Madam said you surely had eaten outside, but I still made some food. Young Master, have you eaten?”
“Silly girl, I haven’t eaten, and I’m indeed hungry right now. Come, eat with me.”
Duan Ling Tian sat down, and accompanied by the young girl, he cleaned all the food on the table.”
Even though at the end he was overly full, there was only warmth which flowed through Duan Ling Tian’s heart.
No matter what, this was Ke Er’s feelings.
He wasn’t willing to disappoint her.
Seeing Duan Ling Tian finishing all the food, Ke Er had a satisfied expression on her face. After clearing up the tableware, she notified Duan Ling Tian and was prepared to return to her room and sleep.
“Ke Er, sleep in my room tonight. I want to cuddle with you.”
Duan Ling Tian took a deep breath as he looked at the young girl.
The young girl was panic-stricken and her cheeks blushed, but she still lightly nodded.
Lying on the bed, smelling the pure and fresh virgin’s fragrance off the young girl, Duan Ling Tian’s lower regions were hot and reacted.
But he didn’t take it a step further, only embracing the young girl with one hand holding the budding flower on her chest, laying there contently.
The young girl’s delicate body slightly trembled.
She could feel a burning hard object pushing up against her from behind.
“Ke Er, go to sleep.”
Embracing the young girl, smelling the young girl’s fragrant hair, Duan Ling Tian fell soundly asleep.
He wasn’t Liu Xia Hui, but a man that was full of vigor and vitality.
However, the young girl was still young after all, so he was reluctant to take her at this moment.
If the young girl in his embrace was Li Fei, he would disregard everything and pounce on her, to claim her and vent out to his heart’s content.
Hearing the sound of Duan Ling Tian’s steady breathing, the young girl let out a breath of air as she relaxed. Her face emitted a smile of happiness.
The next day, close to noon, Duan Ling Tian awoke.
Only now did Duan Ling Tian recall the agreement he made with Li Fei.
At this moment, the young girl in his embrace was roused from her sleep because of him.
“Ke Er, if you’re still sleepy, then sleep for a while longer.”
Duan Ling Tian gave the young girl a hug and kissed her on the forehead before getting off the bed and putting on some clothes.
The young girl followed him off the bed and put on her clothes before leaving the room together with Duan Ling Tian.
Who knew that the moment they opened the room door, they saw the hot-bodied young girl standing in the courtyard who just happened to look over.
Seeing the scene in front of her, Li Fei was so angry that she was at a loss for words.
“Big Sister Fei Fei.”
Ke Er greeted Li Fei before running back to her own room in embarrassment.
Duan Ling Tian, on the other hand, had a natural expression as he looked at Li Fei. “Little Fei, let’s go. I was really too tired yesterday and accidentally overslept.”
Li Fei’s eyes seemed to be on the verge of emitting fire, but when she thought of how she needed Duan Ling Tian to treat her grandfather, she endured it.
Walking out of the courtyard with Li Fei, Duan Ling Tian could still feel the smell of gunpowder that surrounded him.
He shook his head and smiled.
She really was overly jealous.
“You…You two, last night…”
Eventually, Li Fei couldn’t hold back.
“You want to ask me what we did last night, right?”
Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled as if he could see through Li Fei’s thoughts.
Li Fei didn’t say anything, but her expression said it all.
“Heh, when can my Ke Er grow up to become like you? If it were you, I wouldn’t have had to suppress the fire in me and sleep through the night.”
Duan Ling Tian heaved a sigh as he sized up Li Fei’s hot figure in an unrestrained manner. “Little Fei, why don’t you sleep with me tonight?”
“Pei! Ask your Ke Er to sleep with you.”
Li Fei made a spitting sound, but her expression eased up slightly.
