Chapter 854: S-Rated Mysterious Realm
Offit looked at the scene in shock and asked Mia, “Is he the grandmaster trainer you mentioned?”
Mia smiled bitterly and said, “I didn’t expect this either. Training pets is probably just his hobby.”
“His hobby?” Offit widened her eyes, lost for words.
Many people worked their entire lives and failed to become grandmaster trainers. And yet, it was only a hobby for that guy.
To top it off, he was a horrifying monster whether or not it was his main career.
He had a horrifying combat ability for being someone below the Star State, plus he was a grandmaster trainer… Offit found it unbelievable.
In the arena—the nine candidates changed their expressions, including the three who had always remained poised. They looked at the void inside the arena and found that the cracks in the fourth space were healing.
He had punched all the way into the fourth space, and the aftermath of the punch was too much to bear for someone in the Star State!
The previously heated arena suddenly fell quiet.
Su Ping retreated his fist and slightly shook his head at Koro; he then returned to where Xingyue Shen’er was.
Koro felt like an enormous shadow had just moved away as Su Ping left, just like a mountain. He shivered after the pressure was gone; he opened up his mouth, only to come up with nothing. He was too frightened to believe that the guy was in the Fate State.
Su Ping’s punch even shocked a lot of instructors. Everyone had finally realized why the president had directly handed him a recommendation.
He would have won a recommendation easily if he had participated in the competitions, considering his strength.
Even the Oasis Dragon King—the one at the top of the Royal Rank—might have been defeated!
“Brother Heaven Destroyer is as domineering as always…”
“As expected, Brother Heaven Destroyer has become even stronger with the fruits of law. He probably can suppress the genius we met in the divine residence should he meet him again!”
“Tsk, tsk. I didn’t expect I would have the fortune to be in the same alliance Brother Heaven Destroyer is. He will surely become a Star Lord someday!”
“He’s too strong! I feel like I’m witnessing the rise of an astonishing genius, one who will distinguish himself in this Universe Geniuses’ Contest!”
“I think it’s almost certain that Brother Heaven Destroyer will make it to the finals!”
In the small world—members of the Alliance of Star were glowing with excitement; they weren’t jealous at all, because Su Ping was evidently better than most of them.
He was stronger than most of them, even while being in the Void State.
He became even stronger after reaching the Fate State. Monsters such as him could only be dealt with by the super geniuses born in Ascendant State organizations.
There were too many Star State experts in the Federation; nobody would remember all their names. But Su Ping was different; even if he would soon decline, people would still remember him as a genius!
Xingyue Shen’er’s eyes glittered; she felt she had found the right person. Su Ping had shown the strength of an advanced Star State warrior while still not giving his all.
He was only in the Fate State, yet he was as good as those at the peak of the Star State. He had broken her record!
If he were to challenge everybody that had been listed on the Royal Rank… He would definitely have a chance to reach the top!
However, she didn’t think it was necessary. After all, standing out in the Universe Geniuses’ Contest would be a much better proof of his capabilities!
“The man you found is not bad,” said Alan, who was nearby, when Su Ping returned.
All the instructors were shocked; Su Ping was definitely a genius, to receive praise like that from an Ascendant State expert!
They wore complicated expressions; they had felt uncomfortable when Xingyue Shen’er asked for a recommendation for him, but now he seemed absolutely qualified!
They had also been teaching at the academy for hundreds if not thousands of years, and they had seen countless geniuses. However, there had never been one like Su Ping.
If he were a student in their academy, he would be bound to grow up as another super prodigy like Xingyue Shen’er!
He would certainly become a Star Lord!
After all, Su Ping was definitely capable of rising to high places in Silvy. It would be easy for him to become a Star Lord if he managed to win the appreciation of an Ascendant and was recruited as a disciple. His future would certainly be smooth after that.
If he made it to the finals, he would even have a chance of reaching the Ascendant State!
“Where is this monster from? I’ve never seen him before.”
“I’ve never heard of this guy in the nearby solar systems.”
“Has he been raised in secret by some family?”
“I don’t know. He came with Xingyue Shen’er. Is he her brother?”
The other men who had come for recommendations observed Su Ping and committed his image to memory; they would add him to their familial databases, so that nobody in their corporations would mess up with him.
“Apologize to him right now. I’ve already told you that there’s always someone out there who’s stronger than you; just polish yourself in the screening matches after this failure!” reprimanded the family leader after he flew closer to Koro; he was scared of Su Ping’s potential.
Koro sobered up and gritted his teeth. Do I have to apologize to someone in public?
He caved in after some hesitation; he flew to where Su Ping was, then bowed in the humblest manner, as taught by his family. “I’ve lost. Receive my apology for my reckless affront.”
Reckless affront? Su Ping thought of something and said, “You could have been more reckless, right?”
Koro was confused.
Su Ping smiled and said, “It’s nothing.”
Koro slightly gritted his teeth and meant to declare that he would catch up, but he didn’t say it out loud; he felt more frustrated than ever.
The final candidates were confirmed after the incident; Su Ping cemented his win and got one of the ten recommendations.
He and the other nine candidates returned to the president’s manor along with the instructors and Xingyue Shen’er.
Once they were settled in the hall, a mentor stood in front of everybody and announced coldly and solemnly, “The screening matches for the Universe Geniuses’ Contest have begun in every galaxy and every planet.
“Different planets have different quotas. The elimination rounds on planets, solar systems, and galaxies will take three months in total!
“The ten of you will be exempted from those matches. You will take part in the galactic matches at the end, where you will fight the other contestants who passed the screening matches. There will be ten thousand contestants in total!
“Only the top hundred of the ten thousand contestants will be qualified to participate in the regional match on behalf of Silvy! If you make it to the top hundred of the Golden Star Zone, you will go to the finals of the Federation as the regional representatives. Your performance will be live-streamed across the universe!
“We’re hoping that you can pass the qualifiers in our galaxy and enter the regional match in the Golden Star Zone. Then, you’ll set out as representatives of the Golden Star Zone and defeat geniuses from the other star zones!
“All your performances will be watched by Ascendant State masters. Those who enter the regionals may even garner the attention of Celestial State experts!
“Therefore, you must practice harder and ensure you’re in your best condition. Don’t let anything affect your performance in battle, since it will decide your future!”
He gave a sharp stare to everyone present, but he became less solemn when he looked at Su Ping; his punch had left a deep impression on him. Given his experience in previous contests, it wouldn’t be a problem for him to enter the regional matches.
However, it would be a tall order for the others.
All of them were geniuses among geniuses from hundreds of planets, but the universe had an impossibly numerous population. They could be eclipsed even after distinguishing themselves amongst billions of people, because there was always someone who was better!
Everyone became solemn after hearing what the instructor had said. Su Ping was also left in deep thought too.
To be honest, Su Ping had signed up for the Universe Geniuses’ Contest without knowing the rules.
However, he finally had the general idea after the instructor’s briefing.
As it turned out, they could directly go to Silvy’s galactic match with the recommendations from the Amir Royal Academy, but that was just the first step. They had to win the galactic match on their own in order to be recommended to compete in the Golden Star Zone.
The Golden Star Zone was one of the nine star zones in the Federation!
Each star zone contained dozens of galaxies, such as Silvy; some even had a hundred galaxies!
They had thousands of planetary systems and countless worlds!
“We’ll take you to a place where you’ll have a chance to train yourselves during the two and a half months the screening matches will take. That will be your last chance to make some self-improvements!” the instructor said solemnly, “It’s an S-rated Mysterious Realm. The candidates recommended by other academies will also go there. I hope you’ll seize the opportunity to better consolidate yourselves!”
“An S-rated Mysterious Realm!”
Many people’s eyes glittered.
Su Ping was actually surprised to hear that. S-rated Mysterious Realms were very precious; most of them were owned by Ascendant State experts.
Ascendants would often fight to claim SS Mysterious Realms; this was impossible at times because they were usually controlled by Celestials!
As for the SSS Mysterious Realms, which were the rarest, they contained infinite secrets and treasures that even Celestials would have difficulty getting them all!
Su Ping realized something. No wonder these recommendations are in such a high demand. So, getting one can help you skip the screening phase and give you a chance to enter an S-rated Mysterious Realm…
No wonder the reckless guy just now was so competitive.
“Now, do you have any questions? Feel free to ask. You can go and say your goodbyes to your families; we shall meet here in three days to send you off to the mysterious realm,” said the instructor.
“Sir, what Mysterious Realm will it be? I’d like to look for relevant information first,” said a young man at the center.
The instructor said, “It’s called the Illusionary God Monument Mysterious Realm. You must have heard of it. It is said that those who crack all the monuments can inherit the mysterious realm. However, they’ve already been cracked by an Ascendant senior. You can only challenge the monuments if you go there; there will no longer be a chance to inherit the mysterious realm.”
“So, the Illusionary God Monument Mysterious Realm…”
All the others were enlightened and hopeful.
However, Su Ping was puzzled but he didn’t ask. He could always look it up, or consult with Xingyue Shen’er.
“Sir, will the academy provide training resources for us while we’re there?” asked a student on the Royal Rank. She was a beautiful woman, who looked neither cold nor condescending. Instead, she wore a gentle and approachable smile.
The instructor smiled and said, “Of course. The academy will provide fundamental training resources of the highest quality! If you need any special resources, you can exchange for them with points depending on your performance. The stronger you are, the more resources you’ll get!”
Following that, a few other people asked more training questions and about the challenge; the instructor was forthcoming, clearing all their doubts.
The latter then asked them to wait until they reached the mysterious realm; all their remaining questions would be answered.
“All of you are being recommended by this academy. You represent our dignity. I hope that you work hard.”
President Alan concluded with an encouraging smile, “Keep it up, everybody!”
“We will follow your instructions, president!”
His short concluding remark left everyone in high spirits. They were clearly more enthused than when the instructor was speaking.
Even the unruly geniuses behaved in a docile manner while they were before him, without showing any prideful stances.
After all, the geniuses present already had the potential of becoming Star Lords, but it remained unknown whether or not they could reach the Ascendant State. It was even safe to say that the odds of success were high!
Ascendant State warriors were bigshots in the entire Federation; they were at the top of the pyramid.
After the encouragement, Alan dismissed everybody and sent them home.
Su Ping later found Xingyue Shen’er. They left the president’s manor and rushed to the campus.
“I’ve found most of the materials you need. However, one of them is still missing. I’m still searching for it. Given more time, I should be able to find it,” Xingyue Shen’er said to Su Ping.
After a moment of shock, Su Ping said in delight, “Thank you so much!”
