Xu Lizhi spoke, “Now I understand why our teachers had those looks on their faces when we left the academy. And that senior we met from War God Hall. I really don’t want to return to that place for all eternity.”
When they found out that they were allowed to leave the island, they almost could not contain themselves and jumped into the sea impatiently, heading as far away as possible.
“Actually, the Old Demons are rather piteous,” Xu Xiaoyan spoke.
Yue Zhengyu’s expression changed. “If they’re piteous, then what are we? Did we not get enough of their torture?”
“Zhengyu, calm down.” Tang Wulin spoke, “We were ruthlessly tortured, but I have to admit that we improved by leaps and bounds within such a short period of time. We’ve all grown, and I truly felt like I’m no longer a child but an adult the moment we left that place.”
“Yes! We’ve all grown,” Yuanen Yehui chuckled as she spoke.
Tang Wulin spoke leisurely, “Oh right, I’ve seen everyone’s reaction during Old Demon Lust’s test, other than Zhengyu who had an accident. It was Old Demon Lust who showed it to me intentionally. Say, would all of you like to know each other’s reaction?”
The group of people became quiet, while Yue Zhengyu widened his eyes in surprise.
Soon after, the other five almost yelled in unison, “Shut up!”
The soul train arrived with a honk that finally brought light to the deserted, little train station. Tang Wulin clasped his hands at the back of his head as he looked at the familiar train and recalled every single encounter. He walked onto it first.
It was, at last, time to go back. The arduous days were finally behind them.
In the end, he did not talk about the things he had witnessed on that day. Some things were better left unsaid.
In the Northsea Army Corps, Shen Yue’s expression was dark as she listened to the reports from her inferior. She was in the worst of moods.
She was shocked to find that there were hidden traitors in the Northsea Army Corps with such important posts. She was bound by unshirkable duty as a regimental officer. More importantly, her sister was almost taken hostage. She would certainly get to the bottom of this incident and remove the infiltration by its roots.
“Dispatch my orders. Launch cleanup operations immediately. Vet the army corps’ internal officers strictly.”
Obviously, Major Chen and his partners were removed from the military. After an inventory count, it was found that over two hundred fixed soul ammunitions were missing. That was enough to annihilate a small city.
Shen Xing looked at her sister. She still had yet to completely regain her composure.
“Sister, don’t be too stressed out.” Everyone had left the room, so Shen Xing addressed Shen Yue casually.
Shen Yue frowned. “This is already not an issue of stress anymore. Someone infiltrated our Northsea Army Corps, so what about the other army corps? How about the entire Northeast Military Region? I can’t hide this incident, so I must report it. I’m afraid that I’ll be reprimanded. As for you, I’ll detail your meritorious service accordingly. It was you that discovered the issue anyhow. Moreover, you managed to stop those traitors from escaping. I won’t mention the Shrek Seven Monsters. I’ll say that it was all your doing.”
“Sister, then what about you? What sort of punishment will you be getting?” Shen Xing asked anxiously.
Shen Yue smiled bitterly while shaking her head. “I don’t know. I can only take one step at a time. The incident this time is very serious, so I’m afraid that my position as the regimental office is at stake. I’ll be transferring you as soon as possible once your merit is approved. It’s time for you to take charge.”
Shen Xing nodded gently. For some reason, she did not have anymore nightmares when she slept after the whole incident.
Shen Yue did not send someone to pursue the Shrek Seven Monsters, because there was no need for her to do so. It was meaningless. What could she do even if Tang Wulin’s group of seven was caught? It would only bring greater scandal to the Northsea Army Corps. It was better for everyone to leave them be. After all, the conflict between Imperial Sun Moon Soul Master Academy and Shrek Academy was only a personal dispute. On the other hand, she would need to consider many things in the long-term as a high-ranking military officer.
After changing trains twice, Tang Wulin and his companions boarded the correct train as they headed straight for Shrek Academy. This time, they did not encounter any surprises, and their journey was safe and sound.
Tang Wulin felt like tears were about to stream down his face as the soul train came to a firm stop on Shrek City’s tracks. A soul train journey with no incidents was truly unprecedented. He had been on tenterhooks the whole time!
He got off the train and stretched his whole body.
“We’re finally back. Are we going to check-in straight away or do all of you have your own matters to attend to?” Tang Wulin asked his companions.
Xie Xie spoke, “I don’t plan on returning to the academy so soon. I need to take a long rest. I can’t take it anymore because of how serious it is this time. I plan to go home. It’s been too long. Yuanen, let’s go back to my home together. An ugly wife will meet the in-laws anyhow. Ouch!”
Yuanen Yehui twisted Xie Xie’s ear with a murderous look on her face. “Who are you calling an ugly wife?”
“I’m ugly, I’m ugly. You’re the most beautiful one.” When it came to love, Xie Xie had never been a person of good morals.
Yue Zhengyu said gleefully, “Serves you right. Xiaoyan, are you going to invite me to your home? I’m not ugly, am I?”
Xie Xie furiously replied, “Are you picking a fight?”
Xu Xiaoyan giggled. “Sure! I come from the same place as Xie Xie, so you can follow me as we return to Eastsea City. I’ll show you around my home.”
Yue Zhengyu and Xie Xie glared at each other with disgust, but they did not fight.
Tang Wulin could not help laughing and shook his head. He turned to Ye Xinglan and Xu Lizhi. “How about the both of you?”
Xu Lizhi looked toward Ye Xinglan. Ye Xinglan answered, “We’ll be better off returning to the academy. We’ve really learned so much this time. I plan to go back and consolidate the knowledge and so does Lizhi. Our gains from this trip have been abundant, so I’ll be helping him to strengthen his cultivation base.”
Tang Wulin spoke, “We shall gather at the academy in one month’s time. After that, I want all of us to train together as a team. Does everyone agree?”
Xie Xie answered, “Fine with me.”
Yuanen Yehui nodded.
Yue Zhengyu spoke, “Fine with me too. Moreover, I think that Big Brother made the right decision. I plan to enlist with you once we’ve graduated from inner court.”
Xie Xie looked at Yue Zhengyu in astonishment and spoke, “I didn’t expect you to be so patriotic. I don’t normally see that!”
Xu Xiaoyan laughed softly. “He thinks that the military uniform looks good on him. He has been talking about that quite a few times ever since he was dressed in military uniform the other day.”
Yue Zhengyu was immediately dejected. “Wifey, you shouldn’t let me down like that!”
Xu Xiaoyan rolled her eyes at him. “Since when was I your wife?”
Yue Zhengyu sniggered. “We’ve already made a deal. How are you not my wife yet?
I already consider the version of you from the illusion to be just like the actual you. After all, Old Demon Lust’s simulation is so real. Heh-heh-heh-heh.”
Xu Xiaoyan’s charming face blushed when she saw him sniggering cunningly. “Hey, you’re not going home with me if you’re going to behave like this!”
Yue Zhengyu hastily stopped speaking.
Ye Xinglan smiled and spoke, “It’s fine with me as well. We’re a team so we should have real joint training. Moreover, I’m also quite interested in enlisting. I’ve only genuinely understood that our individual strength is minuscule compared to an army after seeing the situation in the Northsea Army Corps. Even though we won’t always be in the military, I feel that it’s essential that we understand the standards of the modern armed forces. I think that Xu Lizhi and I will be enlisting as well after graduation.
