The Warriormate could make and receive calls. When Yang Tian looked at the time, he noticed he had missed a few calls.
One of them was from Qin Fei, and a few of them were from home.
“Brother Zhao, I need to make a call,” Yang Tian said as he put on his Bluetooth earphone. The Warriormate began to call home.
The phone dialed, but no one picked up. Yang Tian guessed that his parents were both at work. He left a voice message saying that everything was well. He had already joined the Tianwei Military Academy, and he would be able to go home in the next two days.
After hanging up, Yang Tian called Qin Fei.
As powerful as the Monsters were, they were unable to damage the satellites launched by humanity. The various Safe Zones across the world were all connected via the internet. Even if Qin Fei was in Hero City in Europe, Yang Tian could contact her.
“Hello, Yang Tian!” The call very quickly connected, and Qin Fei’s voice could be heard in Yang Tian’s Bluetooth earphones.
“Little Fei, have you arrived?” Yang Tian spoke into the Warriormate.
“I arrived a few days ago. Oh yeah! Why didn’t you pick up my call? Are you well?” Qin Fei asked, her tone of voice betraying her worry.
Yang Tian smiled. “Don’t worry, I’m fine. A few days ago when you called, I… was training at the Military Academy.” Yang Tian originally wanted to tell the truth, but on second thought if he said he was in a coma for ten days Qin Fei would be incredibly sad. Therefore, he just went for any excuse.
Qin Fei did not pry any further and said, “As long as you’re fine. You need to call me often, okay?”
“Okay!” Yang Tian nodded enthusiastically.
Following that, Qin Fei recounted her encounters on the road. She said she saw many different Monsters, and even witnessed her parents’ employees battling the Monsters.
Both of them chatted for half an hour or so before hanging up.
“Brother Zhao, I apologize for the wait.” Yang Tian turned and smiled awkwardly after hanging up.
Zhao Wu smiled, and said, “No biggy! It’s always like this when lovers chat. Oh yeah. I’m here to take you out of the hospital. I’ve already gotten your discharge papers in order. All the medical fees will be covered by Tianwei Military Academy.”
“Haha! That’s great!” Yang Tian jumped out of the bed.
Zhao Wu had thought of everything for Yang Tian and had even prepared a change of clothes for him.
Yang Tian showered in the ward bathroom and put on the black T-shirt Zhao Wu bought for him, as well as the blue jeans and white socks.
After changing his clothes, Yang Tian opened his backpack to see Drago hiding inside. The little fellow knew not to squeak, and instead waved one claw at Yang Tian.
Apart from his backpack, Yang Tian’s weapons were also there.
“Yang Tian, don’t worry. You won’t lose anything here no matter how valuable. Unless someone has a death wish.” Zhao Wu chuckled as he spoke when he saw Yang Tian inspecting the contents of his backpack.
Yang Tian turned and slung his backpack over his back. He picked up the YT alloy saber smiling, and said, “Brother Zhao, I owe you too much! If you have the time tonight, I’d like to buy you dinner. Does that sound good?”
Zhao Wu laughed. “I’ll hold you to that!”
As they left the ward, Yang Tian realized that the ward was situated in the VIP area. The nurses in the corridor were all very beautiful young women.
“Yang Tian, all this time the ones who have been cleaning your body are these two beautiful nurses! Don’t you want to ask for their number? I’m sure they’d be willing to date a strapping young Warrior like yourself.”
Zhao Wu winked at Yang Tian and spoke as the two beautiful nurses passed them by.
Yang Tian smiled and shook his head. “I already have a girlfriend.”
“Eh… another love bird! That kind of life is so boring!” Zhao Wu shook his head in impatience as he laughed.
After leaving the hospital, Zhao Wu brought Yang Tian to a luxury car. They drove for twenty minutes in the city before stopping.
Yang Tian got out of the car to find himself in front of Tianwei Military Academy.
Compared to Shenwei Military Academy, Tianwei Military Academy was no different—it was also a large, beautifully designed building.
After entering the main gates of the Military Academy, Zhao Wu brought Yang Tian to the trial grounds.
In the car, Yang Tian asked to be taken to the Warrior Trials. He wanted to know what his Grade was. The Military Academies in Tianxiong City were all capable of carrying out Trials and had the power to set the Grade of Warriors.
These trials were never falsified as they concerned the lives of Warriors and the reputation of the Military Academy. Furthermore, the entire process was recorded and sent along with the results to the Tianxiong City Administration for record-keeping.
The trials covered four major areas. Namely strength, agility, reflex speed, and endurance.
Every category had a separate score, and the aggregate score would reflect the Warrior’s Grade.
Every Grade’s corresponding score was a product of decades of aggregating and averaging out the results.
Even though they had only consumed a Grade One Beast Core, if the aggregate score achieved that of a Grade Two Warrior, they would qualify as a Grade Two Warrior.
Of course, this situation had never happened.
If a Transhuman did not refine their Combat Skills, they would never develop their potential to the maximum and would never become a true Warrior.
The strength test was the most straightforward. One only needed to continuously punch and kick the measuring machine ten times in a row. After that, the machine would calculate the mean score of the kicks and punches.
Knowing that a newcomer was here to do the trials, the trial grounds were packed with warriors who were training nearby. They came to witness Yang Tian’s trial, and there were at least 50 spectators. There were men and women, young and middle-aged; all of them were looking at Yang Tian.
This was Yang Tian’s first time undergoing the trials under the gaze of so many Warriors, and he felt slightly nervous.
Sensing his nervousness, Zhao Wu slapped Yang Tian on the shoulder and whispered in his ear, “The people in the Military Academy only look at your capability, not your age. Even though you’re only 18, if your capabilities surpass theirs, they’ll call you big brother. Big Brother Yang, heheh!”
This was a world where might was respected, and Yang Tian knew that well.
Putting down his bag, Yang Tian took a few deep breaths and stepped forward to the Strength Measurement Machine.
The Strength Measurement Machine was actually of a very simple design. It was slightly larger but from the looks of it, it looked like a measuring rod with a display.
The measuring rod looked like a massive joystick that could rotate 360 degrees and had a rounded end that was full of air. Striking that end with the intention of moving the measuring rod was not something a baseline human could do.
This was a measurement machine used by Warriors. Compared to the one Yang Tian used in the Shenwei Military Academy trials, it was of a completely different make.
Yang Tian stood in front of the measuring rod and calmed his emotions. He clenched his fist and swayed his head as he placed his focus on the measuring rod.
In order to strike with full power, one not only needed sufficient muscle mass to generate power, but one also needed speed in throwing one’s fist and leg.
Bang bang bang bang…
Suddenly, Yang Tian threw his fists. In the space of a second, he had punched the measuring rod ten times. The measuring rod had already shifted slightly on the first punch. The display at the side started to tick upward. However, Yang Tian paid it no mind. Before the measuring rod slid back, he had thrown the second, third punch…
When Yang Tian stopped, the measurement rod had already moved by at least five degrees. The display showed a value, 1238 Kg!
Looking at this value, Yang Tian was shocked. Just over 2 weeks ago, he had taken part in the Shenwei Military Academy trials and just scored over 200 kilograms in the strength test.
It was unthinkable that at that time, his strength had increased fivefold!
