Chapter 88 – The younger generation is indeed formidable

“The time is up, the battle is over.”

The voice of Instructor Yuan Gang echoed clearly from the base’s loudspeakers, reverberating in every corner.

The members of the Mask Team sitting on the side finally breathed a sigh of relief, their hearts no longer hanging in suspense.

“I was so scared, I almost thought the captain was going to lose,” Whirlpool patted his chest, feeling a bit scared.

Moon Ghost fell silent for a moment. “Why do I feel… strange?”

“I have the same feeling,” Rose’s expression was a bit odd. “It feels like the captain’s time was…”

“Cough, cough, cough!”

Tianping coughed violently a few times, giving everyone a meaningful look.

The members of the Mask Team all closed their mouths, seeming to understand something, their faces a bit embarrassed.

Baili Pangpang scratched his head. “What? Didn’t Qi Ye win?”

“No, time’s up, he didn’t manage to cut off Wang Mian’s mask,” Molly shook her head.

Baili Pangpang blinked in confusion, pointing to the single lens on his nose, saying, “But I clearly saw Qi Ye with a sword… sob, sob.”

Lin Qiye, who appeared out of nowhere, tightly covered Baili Pangpang’s mouth, expressionless as he dragged him to a corner. Baili Pangpang was like a flower girl being abducted by a villain, wanting to say something but unable to.

“You saw everything?” In the corner, Lin Qiye looked helplessly at Baili Pangpang.


“Pretend you didn’t see anything.”

Baili Pangpang was stunned. “But…”

“Baili Pangpang, what do you think of these new recruits?”

Baili Pangpang thought for a moment. “Except for a few, the rest are pretty useless.”

“And do you think it’s a good thing to cancel this training and let them face those mysterious things directly in various places?”

“I don’t think so…”

“So,” Lin Qiye patted his shoulder, looking up at the sky at a 45-degree angle, his gaze deep and full of pity, “even if I win, I have to pretend that I didn’t. I’m not doing it for myself, I’m doing it for the future of these two hundred plus people… That’s the big picture!”

Baili Pangpang’s body trembled, staring blankly at Lin Qiye, only coming back to his senses after a long while.

“I see! Brother Qiye! I didn’t expect you to be not only smart and capable in battle, but also have such a high level of thinking… I… I underestimated it!”

Lin Qiye nodded slightly. “This matter cannot be spoken of.”

“Don’t worry, I understand!” Baili Pangpang patted his chest heavily, his eyes filled with determination.

“Let’s go, the battle is over, it’s time to regroup…”

Half an hour later.

On the martial arts stage, more than twenty instructors stood straight, with all the members of the Mask Team by their side.

Yuan Gang stood at the front, looking down at the new recruits who were silent with their heads bowed, a fleeting smile appearing at the corner of his mouth.

“I am very disappointed in all of you…” he spoke slowly, his deep voice echoing in the night sky.

Upon hearing this, the members of the Mask Team standing beside him trembled slightly, silently lowering their heads…

“239 people against 5, except for a few, the vast majority of you haven’t even touched the hem of the Mask Team’s clothes! Slow and confused actions! Chaotic thoughts! No method at all!! What I said before was not wrong! You are all useless! This way, you will only harm your teammates!!”

Yuan Gang scolded for a long time, seeming to feel a bit guilty, and added, “Of course, except for a few…”

“…Since you lost, then follow what I said before! Abandon all your pride, arrogance, forget your past, and throw yourself wholeheartedly into the training! This training will last for a year, divided into two parts. The first part is pure physical training! During this half year, we will use a Forbidden Artifact to suppress the Forbidden Ruin within you, and you will lose the special powers you are proud of, becoming ordinary people! During this time, we will torture you in various ways, physically and mentally exhausting you, keeping you on the brink of collapse at all times! You will despair, suffer, and even want to seek death… but unfortunately, you can’t even do that here! As for the second part, it will be the practical application of the Forbidden Ruin and tactical theory. After you endure this half year, I will slowly explain to you…”

Yuan Gang’s gaze swept over the new recruits below, and after a while, he turned and left.

“Enjoy this last bit of peace, rookies, tomorrow… will be your nightmare.”

The instructors followed Yuan Gang, leaving, and the members of the Mask Team also put on a cold front, disappearing into the night.

The new recruits immediately started whispering to each other.

“Physical training… I think I’m starting to regret coming here,” Baili Pangpang patted his belly, looking mournful.

“Instead of that, I think you should be concerned about another issue…” Lin Qiye spoke slowly.


“The dormitory building was just destroyed, where are we going to stay tonight?”


Not only Lin Qiye, but the other new recruits also quickly realized this problem. They ran back to the dormitory area, then stood dumbfounded…

The dormitory building that had just been reduced to rubble had been restored to its original state.

There was not a single crack on the walls, not even a speck of debris on the ground. And everyone’s luggage and bed sheets were intact, showing no signs of a major battle ever taking place.

“How… how is this possible?” The new recruits were completely stunned. They had only been away for half an hour, how was this done?

On the side, Lin Qiye thoughtfully stroked his chin, turning to look into the distance at the dark night.”Cough cough cough… help me up…” Wang Mian had already taken off his mask, and as he walked, he stumbled, nearly falling to the ground.

Xuanwo and Taiping lifted him up from either side, both letting out a long sigh.

“Captain, why did you have to do that? We could have just let the logistics team fix the dormitory building. Why did you insist on using time reversal to piece it back together?” Xuanwo frowned as he spoke.

“You can’t say that. I was the one who knocked down those three buildings; I should be the one to deal with the consequences.” Wang Mian, with his delicate features, shook his head, his lips slightly pale.

“Even though there were no living things inside, reversing time by over half an hour puts too much strain on the Psychic Power.” Taiping also had a worried look on his face.

“It’s fine, I’ll just have Cainai brew me a bowl of soup when we get back.”

“By the way, Captain… did we lose today?” Qiangwei couldn’t help but ask.

Taiping gave Qiangwei a look, signaling her not to bring up this topic right now.

Wang Mian’s body paused, and after a long moment, he slowly straightened up, turned his head to look at the noisy dormitory building behind him, and a smile appeared on his lips.

“Yes, we lost… and we owe someone a favor.

The younger generation is indeed formidable.”
