86 Disgruntled Sun Qi

“I haven’t even told you about the benefits!”

When he saw his rejection without hesitation, Xu Chu exclaimed angrily, “Don’t tell me you hate me for attacking you?!”

To be honest, any participant in the military selection who saw Xu Chu would be shocked.

They wouldn’t even think he was the Commander of the Ninth Legion.

“Kiddo, don’t be in such a hurry to refuse. The Ninth Legion’s benefits aren’t as bad as you’ve heard,” Xu Chu said after some thought. “If you want to join, I can try my best to satisfy you.”

“I can ask for anything?”

“Well… Just don’t go too far. After all, this is the military, not a game.”

To be personally invited by the legion’s commander was a great thing that no member of the youth training could imagine.

If it was the Commander of the Ninth Legion, however, most youth training members who weren’t stupid would hesitate.

That wasn’t unusual, given that the Ninth Legion was widely ridiculed, even within the academy.

Their strength was, at the very least, and the number of experts in the legion could be counted on one’s fingers.

Compared to the other legions, their merit points were pitifully low, not to mention the benefits.

No matter how one looked at it, it was a worrying choice.

Su Bai was surprised but didn’t feel strange that Xu Chu came to him.

It wasn’t unusual for promising talents to appear in the youth training camp and be directly accepted by the military.

“I’ll consider it.”

“I’m sure you’ve heard about the legion’s situation in the military. I won’t force you.” Xu Chu said with an honest smile.

“Understood. My condition is to enter the legion and become a C-rank soldier.”

“That’s all? You scared me to death just now,” Xu Chu said in surprise. “I thought you were going to ask for something exorbitant.”

To directly skipped D-rank and become a C-rank soldier.

At first, it didn’t seem like much, but in reality, Su Bai had crossed a threshold.

A D-rank soldier was usually in charge of the military’s logistics, which included a series of troublesome matters such as inventories.

For example, Liu Xin, who had brought Su Bai to the youth training camp, was doing this kind of drudgery.

A new soldier had to be familiar with a D-rank soldier for a year before he had a chance to be promoted. Su Bai didn’t want to waste time on such trivial matters.

Just then, Xu Chu came to find Su Bai, and he had a good impression of Xu Chu.

Su Bai felt that Xu Chu had a simple and honest personality, was carefree, and didn’t put on the air. He also didn’t appear to be astute.

A C-rank soldier, on the other hand, was quite different. He was already equipped to run to the front lines and carry out missions.

They had more opportunities and dangers than D-rank soldiers.

Su Bai initially refused to join the legion because of his fear of being targeted.

The bigger reason was the reputation of the Ninth Legion.

On second thought, Su Bai decided that joining the Ninth Legion wasn’t such a bad idea.

Although the First Legion’s treatment and atmosphere were superior, Su Bai preferred to grow quickly.

The competition would be ten to a hundred times more intense than the youth training camp!

Since that was the case, it was better to find another way.

“Don’t worry. Becoming a C-rank soldier is not an issue. Bing He was right about you. You’re a man of great potential!” Xu Chu laughed.

“Let’s not get hasty. I’m not done yet.”

“There’s more?”

“Of course.” Su Bai pretended to be helpless. “The expenses of a Beastmaster are huge. I believe you know better than me, Commander. If I join the Ninth Legion and can’t afford my expenses…”

“Not a problem! The resources you have won’t be any worse than the other legions. I can guarantee that,” Xu Chu said.

“It’s a deal!”

“It’s a deal!”

The two’s eyes flickered as they reached an agreement.

Su Bai’s expenses were just an excuse. With the system, he didn’t need to spend on nurturing his Beasts. What was more important was to spend on other things.

When Xu Chu heard of Su Bai’s request, he was happier.

The legion didn’t have many new members every year, so even if the resources were the worst, there would still be excess.

He was worried that no one would use it, but Su Bai had no problem with it.

On the way back, Su Bai realized that Xu Chu was a chatterbox who would talk about anything. From his youth to his past achievements.

Su Bai was stunned by Xu Chu’s words as if he was listening to a story.

However, Xu Chu’s temperament was more approachable, without a sense of superiority.

The two of them bid farewell at the gate of the military base, and Su Bai walked to the exam field.

The surrounding participants who had returned early cast their gazes over at that moment. Their eyes were filled with exhaustion, and their bodies were wrapped in all sorts of bandages.

“I almost died in Area B1 today. I’m afraid I’m gonna fail.”

A young man with a head full of bumps said angrily, “Those f*ckng bees, I’m going to put them out with a fire one day!”

“Su Bai is back. I wonder how he got.”

“It’s definitely good!”

“That’s right!”

“I didn’t go yesterday and thought you were exaggerating. I only know how awesome Su Bai is after I went today!”

“Everyone, stop talking nonsense. Look, Su Bai is going to count his points!”

Su Bai walked to the soldier and placed all the dead Beasts in the Beast Space on the ground.

In an instant, everyone’s gazes turned from anticipation to shock.

The most spectacular sight was the nine Iron Rhinos, which were placed on the empty ground like a military truck. Everyone was dumbfounded.

The rest of the corpses were all kinds of Beasts on the ground.

“T-that many?” The soldier was mentally prepared, but he was also shocked.

In the distance, Sun Qi’s face was ashen.

His team had 560 points, more than Su Bai’s.

The 560 points were the new points accumulated after yesterday’s punishment.

Sun Qi had led his team to risk their lives and almost lost their lives in Area B1.

But Sun Qi didn’t expect that Su Bai had brought back more dead Beasts than yesterday.

Sun qi didn’t even need to wait for the results, and he knew he had lost completely!

Soon, the soldier finished counting Su Bai’s spoils and announced the points on the screen.

First place, Su Bai, 850 points!

Su Bai had gained more than 500 points in one day, crushing the second place by 300 points!

“Su Bai. I-Is he really a human?”

“Why is there such a monster from the youth training camp?”

“I’m guessing Sun Qi has a mental breakdown right now.”

“Someone help! Sun Qi has fainted. Quickly take him to the infirmary!”

When the audience saw the numbers on the screen, some were envious, and some were jealous. Sun Qi was so angry that he fainted and was carried away.

Zhao Yue stood in his office and watched the numbers on the computer screen change.

There was a slight ripple in his eyes.

“Su Bai… He’s a talent.”

Zhao Yue picked up his phone and called, “Deputy Commander Wang, please. Be quick.”

After the call was connected, Zhao Yue reported Su Bai’s situation.

However, the person on the other end of the phone wasn’t very interested in this matter and quickly hung up.

Zhao Yue chuckled.

The youth training camp was originally a chance for a group of mediocre youth training members. A great talent suddenly appeared. In the eyes of the higher-ups, he was a nobody.

Therefore, Zhao Yue gave up on that idea, but he was still looking forward to Su Bai’s next performance.

Su Bai took his card back and went back to his room to rest.
