Chapter 73 – We are Mask Xia

“Stand up straight!!!” The instructor behind Yuan Gang shouted loudly!

All the new recruits in the field immediately quieted down. Although the formation was still crooked, at least the outline of the formation could be seen.

Lin Qiye and Baili Pangpang arrived relatively late, so they stood at the back of the formation. Even so, they could still feel the suppression from the instructors on the training platform!

Without using the Forbidden Ruin, without using weapons, they just stood there, and their imposing manner was like a majestic mountain, suppressing everyone’s chest.

This kind of imposing manner can only come from the training of life and death battles, which is something that this group of rookies does not have.

Yuan Gang silently watched the people below for a long time before slowly opening his mouth with a deep and loud voice:

“I know that all of you are geniuses from the entire Great Xia. Either you have the Forbidden Ruin that ordinary people dream of, or you have reached the pinnacle of skills, or maybe you have extraordinary backgrounds…

But, from the moment you stepped through that door, you only have one identity…

That is a new recruit!

You are rookies!!

No, now you can’t even be considered rookies, you are trash, you are garbage!

When facing truly powerful mysteries, you will only end up killing yourselves and dragging down your teammates, you worthless pieces of trash!

You still have a long way to go if you want to truly become Night Watchmen!”

Yuan Gang’s voice grew louder and louder, like thunder echoing in the empty training ground. Lin Qiye could clearly sense the cold expressions of most of the new recruits around him.

Some raised their heads proudly, some sneered secretly, some ignored it, some pondered…

“What? You don’t agree?” Yuan Gang took in everyone’s expressions and raised his eyebrows.

No one answered, but their answers were written on their faces.

Yes, I don’t agree!

“Do you think that because you have powerful Forbidden Ruins, extraordinary abilities, and limitless future, you think that the only reason I can stand here and reprimand you is because I was born a few years earlier and have a higher boundary than you?

Do you think that I can say you are weak, that your boundary is low, but I can’t say you are trash, you are garbage?”

Yuan Gang sneered, “Nonsense! I’m not wrong at all. Even if you reach the ‘Klein’ boundary in your current state, you would still just be slightly stronger trash! When you encounter those truly powerful individuals, you won’t even be able to withstand a single move!

Do you believe it?!”

Many people’s breathing became heavy, and they stared at Yuan Gang on the platform, their eyes seemingly burning with anger.

“I don’t believe it!!”

Just then, a young man with his military uniform open and his cap reversed slowly extended his hand, chewing gum in his mouth, his face full of playfulness.

“New recruit, what’s your name?”

“Shen Qingzhu.”

“Good, anyone else who doesn’t agree?”

“I don’t agree!”

“Me too!”

“And me!!”


Led by Shen Qingzhu, more and more people refused to agree, and in the end, about half of the entire team raised their hands.

In the back row, Baili Pangpang nudged Lin Qiye,

“Qi Ye, what about you?”

“Me? I agree.”


“Because what he said is true.” Images of the rain that washed away everything, the invincible Ghost-Faced King in the rain, and the Nandu Snake Demon in Erzhong, who stood in the darkness, with extraordinary intelligence, secretly planning everything, appeared in Lin Qiye’s mind…

“They haven’t encountered mysteries before, they don’t know what those existences are like…” Lin Qiye narrowed his eyes slightly, “I can guarantee that if they really encounter the mysteries I have encountered, out of these two hundred plus people, less than ten will survive.

Moreover, in this world, there are definitely stronger and more abnormal mysterious existences… If I were to encounter them now, I’m afraid I wouldn’t even know how I would die.”

“You’ve encountered mysteries? Are they very powerful?”

“Very powerful.”

“Okay, if you agree, then I agree too.” Baili Pangpang said without principles.

On the platform, Yuan Gang’s mouth slightly curved upwards, he nodded, and continued:

“Alright, since so many of you don’t agree, then I’ll give you a chance, a chance to recognize yourselves.”

As he spoke, he took out a walkie-talkie and casually said, “Next.”


The sound of the walkie-talkie shutting off, Yuan Gang looked up at the blue sky, as if waiting for something.

The people below also looked up, but they didn’t see anything. After waiting for a while, they started whispering to each other.

Suddenly, someone in the crowd exclaimed, “Look! Someone is falling from the sky!!”

Everyone looked up in shock!

Lin Qiye looked at the sky, his eyes slightly narrowed.

Above the azure sky, seven black dots were rapidly enlarging. After a few seconds, everyone could see… they were seven people.

Seven people wearing gray cloaks, carrying black boxes on their backs, and wearing different masks.

They were falling from the top of the clouds, without any protective gear, free-falling towards the training ground at high speed, and the strong wind made their cloaks flutter!

“What the f*ck! Are they skydiving? They don’t even have parachutes!” Baili Pangpang, who was standing next to Lin Qiye, exclaimed.

Not only Baili Pangpang, but everyone else was also dumbfounded, and the noisy voices grew louder.

On the platform, Yuan Gang touched his nose and muttered softly, “Wow, I just mentioned it casually, and they really jumped… They are so dedicated.”

In the sky!

The seven figures were falling rapidly, and the screams of chickens being slaughtered echoed in the air. Among them, the man wearing the whirlpool mask was twisting his limbs frantically.

“Ah ah ah ah ah!!!

Help me ah ah ah ah ah!!


“Whirlpool! Can you shut up! I’m going deaf from your screaming!” The woman wearing the rose mask scolded.

“I’m afraid of heights!!! Rose! Stop standing there and talking nonsense!” Whirlpool’s voice was hoarse from shouting, “Captain! That guy Yuan Gang said he was going to jump, so we really jumped! Why?! What gives him the right?!”

At the bottom, a man wearing a mask with the character “Wang” spoke indifferently, “I heard that the new recruits this year are hard to scare. Instructor Yuan probably had no choice but to ask for our help. We have to lend a hand.”

“Ah! What if we fall to our death?!”

“With me here, you won’t die from a fall.” The man wearing a balance mask next to him rolled his eyes.

“Are you sure about your skills? I’ve gained two pounds recently, can you hold me up?”

“…Captain, can I let this guy fall to his death?”



“Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah…”

“Alright, quiet!” Wang Mian glanced down and continued, “We’re about to land. If you shout too loudly, they’ll hear you. It’s embarrassing.”

“Then…then I’ll try to scream quietly…” Whirlpool covered his mouth.

As they got closer and closer to the ground, the new recruits finally got a clear view of their attire.

“Is it the Mask?!”

“One of the four special squads, the Mask?!”


Amidst the exclamations of the crowd, just as the seven of them were about to crash to the ground, the man wearing the balance mask extended two fingers and gave a slight wave…

The gravity on the seven of them disappeared instantly, and they floated down to the ground like feathers.

Their toes touched the ground, and they stood firmly, their gray cloaks fluttering in the wind. Under the sunlight, their seven distinctly different masks shone brilliantly.

Wang Mian’s gaze swept over everyone’s faces, and he spoke lightly, “Hello everyone, we are the Mask team…”

Before Wang Mian could finish, Whirlpool’s legs gave way…

With a thud, he knelt in front of the new recruits.

Whirlpool: (?????)

Mask Team: (▼ヘ▼#)!!

New Recruits: (?????)?!!
