Somehow, Li Yan felt indescribably bad at the sight of Lu Feng for the present. So she spoke as she could not refrain herself.
This time, Lu Feng did not ignore Li Yan. He looked at her and smiled.
But the smile appeared odd in the eyes of Li Yan and everyone else, for the crowd read sympathy from the smile.
Li Yan flied into a rage. She would like to say something but Lu Feng did not give her the chance. He took a few steps and showed up before the examiners.
"You must be perfectly clear the way we carry out the examination. So, let's begin."
One of the examiners did not say quite much but hand over a device to Lu Feng. At this point, everyone cast their eyes here once again.
However, Lu Feng shook his head gently and he did not take the device in the hand of that examiner.
The crowd was somewhat surprised. Lu Feng finally uttered some words.
"I don't take this for my examination..."
Everyone looked a little amazed upon hearing Lu Feng. Although Lu Feng was not a talented guy, he was a warrior who cultivated his flesh, which was undoubted. A lot of students had been Lu Feng's acquaintances back in middle school. Since then, Lu Feng had left them an impression where he made full use of every seconds possible to cultivate his flesh in an effort to become a warrior. But now Lu Feng was not taking such an examination.
Wang Qu was a little amazed but soon he got himself together. He looked at Lu Feng and cried out laughter. Well, it was not being exaggerating to say his tears burst out.
Wang Qu was screaming with laughter, one hand point at Lu Feng, trembling, the other covering his stomach.
"He was talking about an examination for mage."
"A warrior would dream to be a mage..."
His words were not completed. Twisted was too soft a word to describe that face. And next to him, Li Yan was wearing a scornful smile.
Everyone frowned slightly at the sight of Wang Qu, though they did not understand Lu Feng's purpose. But Wang Qu's exaggerated facial expression was a nuisance. They said nothing, for they all knew the background of Wang Qu. They would, could and dare not offend a young master born in a powerful family.
Lu Feng caught a glimpse of Wang Qu who wore a sick and scornful smile. He turned around and walked to the testing field for mage. He did say nothing but took the device from another examiner.
He put the device onto his head in the eyes of everyone.
It was swift and slow too. A few seconds or dozens of seconds later, the "ding" sound of the testing device attracted the attentions of everyone.
They were all frozen to see the figures displayed on the screen. Wang Qu stopped laughing as he could sense the weirdness in the air. He looked over to Lu Feng with confusion. And next moment, he was frozen too.
By now, tranquility had seized the crowd. Even the president of the university cast his eyes here.
Finally, an outburst of thrilled laughter broke the tranquility.
"I knew it. I knew you could. Lu Feng, you are amazing. That's my buddy. And that's freaking awesome."
There flashed a figure on the screen.
Although 1037 was not an astronomical figure, it struck everyone. It exceeded 1, which followed that Lu Feng's mental power made a breakthrough.
And that breakthrough meant he had become a junior mage.
Within an instant, the entire auditorium was overwhelmed with noises. Everyone had a question on his mind and mouth. They looked at Lu Feng with a strange look, as if they had never known the young man.
A junior mage was everyone's Harry Porter. But Lu Feng would not have set off a sensation but a while of discussion if he were only a junior warrior. But he was a junior mage.
A mage far outweighed a warrior.
The proportion that there was one mage in a thousand warriors spoke for itself.
Such rare and respectable was a mage.
How could one expect Lu Feng, an ordinary who spent seven years cultivating his body and had yet to reach a half-star level, was actually a mage.
Lu Feng saw numerous eyes sparkling with enthusiasm. Still, he was not affected at all.
He looked at the examiner before him and spoke gently, "So, do I get a pass or not?"
Lu Feng's words brought the examiner into reality. He stared at Lu Feng with excitement. The Federal University could enroll students as many as one could think every year from the Red Orchid Planet. But the mages totaled to fifty or so. And over eight out ten had already been filed or singled out. There would be less than ten people spotted in the examinations. Besides, not all of the ten people would choose the Federal University.
It went out of his expectation that he could enroll one mage in this city. Such an achievement was undoubtedly a cornerstone for his future development.
"I really haven't thought about spotting a genius like you in the second-level city."
He was not the only one that ever fancied an unfiled mage to be living in the second-class city. It was indeed incredible.
There was one central city, seventeen first-class cities and hundreds of second-class cities on the Red Orchid Planet. Most of accidentally spotted mages only appeared in the first-class cities. Lu Feng's presence was definitely rare and hardly seen before.
Lu Feng responded to the examiner with a gentle smile but no words. He knew that today would never have been a reality but for the accident, all that happened in his conscious space and the Scripture of Originality.
Passing the form to Lu Feng, the examiner did not go on with the following test but stood next to Lu Feng as he personally instructed Lu Feng to fill it out.
Very quickly, the form was done, followed by a great relief of the examiner and Li Yongheng beside Lu Feng.
Everything done, the examiner looked at Lu Feng and said, "Notice will be delivered to each of you when the school starts. Before the school day, the Admission Notice would be sent to your personal identity database via Skynet. Do pay your attentions to checking that and do not miss your school day."
Lu Feng nodded gently.
He put aside the attachment of the form, scanned it with his Skynet connector and then left.
Everyone was looking strange as Lu Feng left. They finally knew the meaning of the eye contact made by Lu Feng to Li Yan.
That was sympathy, pure as ever.
It was the same feeling everyone had for Li Yan. Nearly all of them knew the history between Lu Feng and Li Yan. After all, Wang Qu had the least intention to save Lu Feng's face. But he himself did lose face.
Lu Feng was actually not that inferior to Wang Qu in real terms. Wang Qu had a powerful family while Lu Feng was born rich. Most importantly, legend had it that his parent were the top managements of the BUCC, a super interstellar consortium. It was a commercial institution but it exerted the same terrifying influences. Their backgrounds bore great resemblances.
They separated from each other in terms of appearance. For Lu Feng, sufficed it to judge from the looks of the girls.
Wang Qu might have triumphed over Lu Feng as far as the blessed talent. But now that Lu Feng became a junior mage, the talent was nothing but a joke. Lu Feng was a genuine talent, for the entire Red Orchid Planet.
Generally speaking, Lu Feng was no counterpart to Wang Qu. It was a sad story that Li Yan chose Wang Qu over Lu Feng. She really was pathetic.
Each step Lu Feng took, everyone made some room for him without knowing it. But somehow, they knew Lu Feng was no longer what he had been.
There was a radical change to his social standing. Whatsoever hardships he had experienced to become a warrior, he managed to transform himself into a talent that inspired awes of everyone and a mage that distinguished itself from all those occupations. Nobody would ever taunt Lu Feng as a loser. His talent would travel out of the tiny area and the small city.
Just as everyone would believe that Lu Feng was about to leave, he rested his footstep.
They gloated over the guy in front of Lu Feng. He was a warrior admitted into the Federal University via enrollment for talents and a guy named Zhao Qiang...
