Chapter 42 Test

Chapter 42 Test
“I'm Zhong Nan! The captain of this escort team. Time is precious, so let's start from the right, one by one doing the test.” a man said while walking on the truck. He was closely followed by the team members who were holding a big chunk of red-shelled insect’s shell.

Chu Yunsheng took a close look at him, quite tall, hard sinewy body, wearing a black coat, his movement was very nimble, seemed to be a competent man.

Zhong Nan stopped in front of them, and said sternly. “everyone, we are doing a basic test today, just want to make sure if everyone is truly awakened, and it is also used to roughly estimate your capabilities, we will re-adjust the estimation later on base on your performance during the battle, and give you the benefit accordingly.”
  
Everyone was fine with what he said, so Zhong Nan took out the red-shelled insect’s shell and explained. “Energy is important for all of us, so the test method is simplified. Use your ability to attack this shell, like how you attack normally, just once. I'll give you a rough estimation base on the damage appeared on the shell.”

Chu Yunsheng already heard from other people saying that those awakened warriors couldn't break the insect’s defence layer easily. Normally they had to attack continuously in order to break the insect’s defence layer.

Zhong Nan’s method was to use one piece of insect’s shell. In this way, people did not have to waste too much energy on it, and based on the attack he could easily estimate their capacities.

The test was done on the truck, it was very crowded outside the truck, and there was no time to find an empty place, so everyone stood up and gathered on the truck, some people even sat on the top of the truck.

The first one was being tested was Yao Xiang. He was always enthusiastic about everything.

The shell was tightly held by two team members during the rest. Yao Xiang walked forward slightly and began to twist his body as if he was possessed by an evil spirit. It instantly startled Chu Yunsheng.

As he suddenly shouted “Ha!” a ring of fire was thrown out from his hand, and smashed onto the shell. Two team members were instantly pushed back half of a step by the impact.

With the help of light, a deep mark on the shell could be clearly seen by everyone. Yao Xiang was satisfied with this result, so he happily asked Zhong Nan. “Captain, what do you think?”

Zhong Nan nodded his head, he simply told the girl who was making a record. “pass!”

Seeing the Captain didn't have much reaction, it upset Yao Xiang a little bit. He couldn't do anything but moved to the side dispiritedly.

The next one was Ding Yan, Chu Yunsheng understood that this man's ability was like the ability of Simei who he killed in the past. They both needed a gun to unleash the power. According to that lecturer Zhang, this type of ability would be their main research subject, the aim was to find out the reason behind it and use it on all types of firearms to kill insects.

Ding Yan’s bullet burned a hole in the shell but it didn't penetrate it. Zhong Nan still nodded his head without any emotions. “pass!”

Next one was Yu Xiaohai, but it was a little bit of trouble. Since he used up his energy, so he could not trigger any more frost arrow now.

Chu Yunsheng thought for a second and pulled Yu Xiaohai who felt embarrassed aside and said. “he used up his energy, couldn't do the test now.”
  
Yu Xiaohai nodded his head, this was the fact.

Zhong Nan knitted his brows. Just when he was about to say something, he was immediately interrupted by a few team members who already thought that Chu Yunsheng was lying at the beginning.

“Don't want to do the test? then get off the truck, this is not the place you can get free food!” Qin Heng kicked up a fuss and everyone laughed.

“why let them go that easily, at least…”

“was he saying 6? why when the Captain is here,  he didn't even dare to do the test, such a pussy!”
  
Chu Yunsheng was furious. He didn't do anything to them in the past, but why the fuck they were treating him like this, were they retarded?

However, Chu Yunsheng didn't realize that since those people had awakened their power, they slowly became arrogant and felt that they were superior to other people. While their social status became higher and higher, they started to look down on other people.  a sarcastic speech was nothing compared to what they did normally. Sometimes they could even beat up some people, but they still wouldn't get any punishment for that.

When a person like Chu Yunsheng gave them such an insolent statement that he could deal with 6 insects, of course, they would consider him as a stupid guy or another new person that they could mock at.

Chu Yunsheng was not smiling anymore. He instantly drew the sword. Hacking, flicking and another hacking, three sword forms in one breath. Everyone could only see three red beams flashed under the light.

They were stunned, they did not know what just happened. But Chu Yunsheng slowly sheathed his sword.

Even the Captain also didn't see what just happened, because he didn't feel any energy movement when Chu Yunsheng used the sword.

Of course, Chu Yunsheng didn't want to use his Yuan Qi on the testing shell. It was dead, Qian Bi sword was sharp enough to break it on its own.

He pointed at the shell and said coldly to Qin Heng and other people. “say one more word, you will end up like that!”

Qin Heng and other people were stunned by his gorgeous sword forms. But when they realized the armor did not break, they all laughed out loud. “almost fooled by you, you stupi…”

In the next moment they gasped in shock, and unable to finish the sentence. The shell was broken into four pieces and fell onto the floor.

“Thump, thump” two muffled sounds were like hammers hammering everyone’s heart!

‘What kind of power was that!?’

His speed was faster than their eyes could see, he broke the insect’s shell which was known to be harder than steel, and even more absurdly that he did not use any energy.

‘Was that really the unbreakable red shelled insect’s shell?’

Qin Heng and other people looked at each other, and stopped laughing!

The Captain Zhong Nan’s first reaction was shocked, then he heart was filled with happiness and excitement. He had never seen such a powerful man before. With this man’s help, his team’s strength would definitely be increased.

He was always tolerating the behavior of Qin Heng and his team. Although those people acted domineeringly in the past, for the whole team, and for the big picture, he did not do anything to them.

However, he did not want to lose Chu Yunsheng this powerful awakened warrior. So his face instantly turned into a grave look and said to Qin Heng’s group. “you come here, and apologize to this gentleman”

Chu Yunsheng had no interest in playing this kind of game, he just said coldly. “no need for it, Captain Zhon. I only hope that they won’t do it next time. I have to mention it first, the reason why I want to join your team is that we both need each other, we don't owe each other anything. It’s a deal. I hope that we can work happily together, and also, my brother used up his energy. Believe it or not, this is my only explanation!”

Zhong Nan smiled. “with your ability, we totally trust your friend, I hope we can cooperate happily”

Chu Yunsheng saw Zhong Nan responded to him so quickly, so he did not carry on complaining anything. After all, they were probably going to cooperate for a very long time. So he pointed at Lin Shuiyao and said. “Apart from her, we do not have any other people, so if it’s not a trouble, please ask your people to help her go through whatever the procedure you need her to do.”

The so-called procedure was actually registering their name with a girl who was responsible for making the record on bus No.1. Because of some unknown reasons, the team member would often request to replace the people on the bus.

Zhong Nan nodded his head. “don't worry, we will make sure everything was arranged properly.” Then he pointed the girl who was sitting next to him doing the record. “Also, if you need to allocate other people in the future, you can look for Tong Tong, as long as it’s within the limits we gave to you, there won't be any problems”

“Okay.” Chu Yunsheng simply replied, then stopped talking.

The truck already stopped moving for quite some time. All the people were crowded together and discussing something. No one knew what happened in the front.

Zhong Nan was worried while gazing at the front of the crowd.  He called another team member and told Chu Yunsheng. “this is Qian Deduo, you and your friend are going to team up with him temporarily, you both can spend some time to get to know each other, I have other things need to attend to.”

Just right after he finished his sentence, he hurriedly left the truck. Chu Yunsheng took out a cigarette from his pocket, took a deep drag while looking at this Qian Deduo this team leader.

He was a young man, roughly twenty years old, perhaps was the student from the Dong Sheng university. He was always squinting his eyes, and his face was filled with weird smiles.

Qian Deduo reached out his hands and smiled. “Hello, my name is Qian Deduo, you can call me Xiao Qian“
