Chapter 89 – Hell

The sharp sound of the whistle echoed in the dark night, completely breaking the silence of the dormitory area.

Lin Qiye suddenly woke up from his dream, glanced at the Rolex used to prop up the table, and frowned slightly.

“Three in the morning… so harsh?”

He quickly got out of bed and changed into his military uniform, then slapped the slippers on the sleeping Baili Pangpang’s face. The latter grunted a few times, licked his lips, and lazily turned over to continue sleeping.

Lin Qiye: …

Lin Qiye couldn’t be bothered to deal with him, so he pushed the door open while tidying up his uniform. Just as the door was about to close, he faintly said:

“I heard that Molly likes women.”


Baili Pangpang sat up lightning-fast from the bed, as if he had a nightmare. He looked at the other empty bed and finally understood what had happened.

“Are they crazy? I’ve only slept for four hours… Qiye, Brother Qiye!! Wait for me!!”

Baili Pangpang pushed open the door while putting on his pants, only to find that many people had already started rushing to the training ground. Annoyed, he scratched his head and rolled up his sleeves to catch up.

In the darkness, Lin Qiye’s speed was astonishingly fast. By the time he arrived at the training ground, there were no other new recruits except for the three instructors standing at attention.

Instructor Hong looked at Lin Qiye, the first to arrive, with a hint of approval in his eyes.

After Lin Qiye, the other new recruits arrived one after another. Instructor Hong held a stopwatch in his hand, seemingly waiting for something.

When the last few recruits arrived, Instructor Hong looked down at the drowsy crowd below and spoke in a deep voice:

“Today is the first day of your formal training camp! Let me… teach you what discipline is! What is execution power! When you hear the whistle, no matter what you’re doing, you must gather at the training ground within three minutes!!”

Instructor Hong’s gaze swept over the crowd, his eyes slightly narrowed.

“Now, anyone who takes more than three minutes will automatically step forward!!”

Among the new recruits under the stage, only a few stepped forward automatically, while the majority were whispering to each other.

“Instructor, what if we didn’t see the time and don’t know how long it took?” a recruit raised his hand and asked.

Instructor Hong glanced at him, “You, go run ten laps.”

Recruit: ???

“I’m just asking…”

“I told you to go run ten laps! Don’t you understand?”


The recruits below suddenly frowned, seemingly unable to understand Instructor Hong’s behavior. At that moment, a middle-aged man among the recruits suddenly spoke up loudly:


Instructor Hong’s eyes lit up, “Speak!”

“What if we don’t know how long it took?”

“Then go by feeling! Take a gamble! I have a record of everyone’s arrival time here. You can bet that you arrived within three minutes. If you’re right, nothing will happen, but if you’re wrong… double the punishment!”


“Have you served in the military?”

“Former Special Forces of the Land Army Combat Brigade, Zheng Zhong!”

Lin Qiye’s peripheral vision looked at the middle-aged man, his gaze somewhat complicated.

Another Special Forces member who transferred to the Night Watchman… Was it the same when Lao Zhao first entered the new recruit training camp?

Instructor Hong nodded slightly, then looked away from Zheng Zhong, “I’ll say it again, those who are late… step forward automatically!!”

After this statement, a large portion of the recruits below stepped forward, including Baili Pangpang, who had a bitter expression on his face. Although he didn’t know how long he took, he estimated that it was more than three minutes.

As for Lin Qiye, he remained motionless in the lineup. Although he didn’t know his exact time, he definitely didn’t take more than two minutes.

When everyone was in position, Instructor Hong pointed to a few people in the original lineup.

“You, you, and you, step forward and stand at the back.”

The recruits who were pointed out had dark faces and reluctantly walked to the back, forming their own line.

“Those who stepped forward automatically just now, carry a weight on your back and run ten laps around the training ground. Those who I pointed out, carry a weight on your back and run twenty laps. No resting until you finish! Those who arrived within three minutes, rest in place.”

The sound of wailing came from the lineup, as they reluctantly walked to the side of the training ground, each carrying a weight on their back and running around the silent training ground.

As for Lin Qiye, he sat leisurely in place, watching them run.

“Huh? I… I can’t sense my Forbidden Ruin anymore!” Suddenly, a recruit next to Lin Qiye exclaimed.

“Me too!”

“I didn’t notice until you mentioned it! What… what’s going on?”

“It’s probably because of what Instructor Yuan said before, about the Forbidden Artifact that can suppress the Forbidden Ruin, right?”

“I really can’t feel it at all, this feeling is so uncomfortable…”

Lin Qiye was taken aback.


You can’t sense the Forbidden Ruin anymore?

I just used the blessing of the Starry Night Dancer to run over here…

Lin Qiye carefully sensed for a moment, his brow also slightly furrowed.

Unlike the others, Lin Qiye could still sense his Forbidden Ruin, whether it was the Mortal Divine Realm or the Starry Night Dancer, they still existed in his body…

It’s just that their effects seemed to have been greatly reduced.

The range of psychic power perception had been reduced from a radius of 20 meters to 2 meters, and dynamic vision had also been weakened by more than half. The enhancement of the Starry Night Dancer was the least affected, and Lin Qiye could hardly feel any difference.

He speculated that the Forbidden Artifact in the training camp could suppress the Forbidden Ruin, but its effect on the Divine Ruin was not so obvious, only weakening it.

Unlike the Mortal Divine Realm, which used his own psychic power, the power of the Starry Night Dancer came from the night itself, so the weakening effect of the Forbidden Artifact on it was minimal.

In other words, the current Lin Qiye might be the only new recruit in the training camp who could still use the Forbidden Ruin.Of course, Lin Qiye knew his priorities and wouldn’t recklessly use the Divine Ruin to alleviate his physical burden. Coming to the Training Camp was for the purpose of self-improvement. If he still relied on the Divine Ruin to cheat, what would be the point of being here?

In the distant running team, one could vaguely see a fat figure lagging at the very end, struggling to move his legs, inching forward bit by bit…

And not far ahead of him was Shen Qingzhu.

Shen Qingzhu didn’t seem to be unable to run, but he was lackadaisical, and if it weren’t for the occasional long stride, Lin Qiye would have thought the guy was taking a stroll in his own backyard.

As he ran, Shen Qingzhu yawned again.

“Hey you! Are you damn strolling? Pick up the pace!!” Instructor Hong frowned at Shen Qingzhu and cursed loudly.

Shen Qingzhu ran a few token steps, then started to dawdle again, seemingly indifferent to the instructor’s words, continuing to do as he pleased with a defiant expression.

“Like strolling, huh? You, add ten more laps! You have to run them today, even if you drop dead on this field!” Instructor Hong seemed truly enraged, “Finish within two hours! Otherwise, add another ten laps! Keep going until you pass out from exhaustion!”

Shen Qingzhu’s brows furrowed, he glanced at Instructor Hong on the stage, spat to the side, and then started to run seriously.

Thirty laps, he ran for a total of one and a half hours.

And Baili Pangpang’s ten laps also took him a full hour and a half.

However, Instructor Hong could see that he was indeed trying his best. With the unruly Shen Qingzhu in front, Instructor Hong suddenly found the little fat guy much more agreeable and didn’t urge him on.

By the time Baili Pangpang finished running and collapsed on the ground, the sky was already showing a hint of dawn. Apart from him, the others had basically completed their laps.

Lin Qiye helped the nearly dead Baili Pangpang back to the dormitory. The moment the latter touched the bed, he collapsed onto it like a lump of mud, his sweat soaking the sheets, looking like he was on his last breath.

“Damn it… I’ve run half a lifetime’s worth of steps tonight… I’m dead tired… I need to sleep…”

Just as Baili Pangpang’s words fell, a sharp whistle sounded again from outside…
