49 It’s Not That They’re Weak, You’re Too Strong

Then, the two teams passed each other in the forest.

After Wu Kui’s team had left, Liu Yiyi heaved a sigh of relief. “Those three seem to be up to no good. We have to hurry.”

The beasts of their high school seniors, especially of those from the Elite Classes, had mostly reached the Lower-bronze level.

Hence, Liu Yiyi thought, ‘We will be at a disadvantage if we fight them.’

When Su Bai heard her, he smiled.

He stroked Whitey on his shoulder and said, “Then let’s end it quickly.”

In just a short while, the two of them had already met their targets.

The 40 dead Saltorats were all in the Beast Space.

“How big is your Beast Space? ” asked Liu Yiyi while staring at Su Bai after finishing off the last Saltorat.

A Saltorat was as big as a large dog. The main reason for its huge size was its thick and powerful legs.

But seeing Su Bai put the forty dead Saltorats into the Beast Space with ease, she felt it was unbelievable.

“It’s just average.” Su Bai shrugged and said innocently, “It just happens to be big enough for them. Why? Are you afraid that I’ll run away?”

“I dare you!”

Liu Yiyi punched Su Bai’s chest in a feigned manner.

Then, they looked at each other and smiled. They looked like a couple playing together.

When Liu Yiyi realized it, she blushed and walked away to the front in a fluster, wanting to go back and report to Li Xin.

On their way back, Su Bai did not stay idle.

All kills were experience points Whitey could gain easily. In addition, it was about to level up.

Hence, as long as he encountered a Saltorat, he would not let it go!

Liu Yiyi, who was beside him, could not help but sigh when she saw this.

‘He really doesn’t want to give those three seniors a chance.’

The Illucub had a sharp nose, so it knew that there were not many Saltorats left in the forest.

Su Bai had killed many on his way. He really did not leave many Saltorats for Wu Kui’s team.

“So fast?” Li Xin was surprised when he saw Su Bai and Liu Yiyi.

After all, he had expected them to at least take an hour to complete the mission.

But now… Only ten minutes had passed!

Moreover, each of them was carrying a piece of refined iron while hunting in the forest.

It was not an easy task.

Hence, Su Bai and Liu Yiyi’s abilities were considered to have exceeded the level of the students, which was why they could complete the task so quickly.

Then Su Bai threw out the dead Saltorats from the Beast Space.

Instantly, a small mountain of corpses was formed.

There were exactly forty of them.

As for those Su Bai had killed on the way back, he had no interest in collecting them. After all, there was no extra reward.

“Yes, the amount is just right. You’ve all passed. You two can join the youth training camp now.” Li Xin nodded after checking them.

Hearing this, Liu Yiyi was stunned for a moment. She asked, “Don’t we have to wait for two more qualifiers?”

Li Xin had mentioned that four of them would make it to the camp.

Su Bai was a little stunned, but he soon figured it out.

“Hehe, you’ve underestimated us.” Li Xin comfortably stretched his waist and frankly said, “I’ve already surveyed the area using Detector. I know how many beasts were there. There were only 58. No more, no less. It was just enough for two to pass the test.”

Even if he was a D-class military officer, he was still far more capable than any students, especially when he was a specially trained soldier.

Moreover, Detector was a soldier’s basic skill.

From the very beginning, this selection process was far crueler than the students had imagined.

Out of the nine candidates, only two would join the camp.

“Actually, it’s not that they’re weak. It’s just that you guys are a little too strong.” Li Xin patiently explained, “In past years, none of the students could accomplish the mission since there were not enough beasts. When the requirements were not met, there would be a second mission. The same process would repeat until the quota for the youth training camp is met. Last year… It took about three to four days.”

What he meant was that Su Bai and Liu Yiyi had outdone the others and ended the process early.

“All thanks to my junior.” Liu Yiyi looked at Su Bai with a smile, thinking that she was right about him.

Following that, Li Xin shouted toward the forest, “Students, group!”

Immediately, the three seniors returned, looking puzzled.

“What’s wrong?”

‘It has only been ten minutes. Why did he call for us?’

Soon after, Li Xin announced that the selection had ended. Knowing that there were only two students who passed, the faces of those three seniors turned pale. They were sweating profusely.

They had not expected that the selection would end in such a way.

After all, it was just the first test. But the selection had ended way earlier.

The sudden news caused them to be a little confused, and they could not even recall how they boarded a bus to return home.

Meanwhile, Su Bai and Liu Yiyi got into a Jeep with Li Xin.

They had embarked on a completely different path from the other three.

“Congratulations, you’re now official Beastmasters,” Li Xin congratulated them in the Jeep.

Normally, students who graduated from school were only apprentice Beastmasters. They had to go to a specialized Beastmaster association to complete the assessment before they could become an official Beastmaster.

Those who entered the military youth training camp would be exempted from that assessment.

“By the way, there are so many talents this year, but I’ve never heard of anyone joining the youth training camp in their first year.” Li Xin expressed the surprise in his heart.

Liu Yiyi, a second-year student, was also a rare case. But every year, there would a few students like her who joined the youth training camp, so it was not something out of expectation.

On the other hand, Su Bai was just a freshman who had only attended the school less than a month, but he was already joining the youth training camp.

If Li Xin were to tell this to others, they would roll their eyes.

“I was just lucky,” Su Bai smiled.

“Lucky, huh? Hehe.” Li Xin didn’t take it seriously and took note of Su Bai’s name.

After more than two hours, the Jeep drove to a military camp far away from the city. Along the way, there were many soldiers. Among them, there were young people.

After stopping the car at an open space, Li Xin explained the reporting location to the two of them and gave them a friendly reminder, “Don’t treat the youth training camp like a school. This isn’t a place for you to play harmony games. If you let your guard down, you will be kicked out in a few days.”

Li Xin would rarely say this to the newcomers because there was no need.

The newcomers would realize it when they learned a hard lesson in the camp.

Those who failed to assess the situation would be eliminated early.

Su Bai and Liu Yiyi thanked Li Xin and then watched him drive away to meet the next batch of students.
