Chapter 177 The Special Power of the Dragon Spirit Squad
He understood the temper of his Eldest Brother. If he really let Wang Feng go, losing a leg was a light punishment.
He had seen people who did not manage to fulfill their responsibilities that Eldest Brother assigned to them. They were beaten so hard that they could not leave their bed for two months. Needless to say, it was miserable.
“Alright, go back and stand with your team.” Knowing that Wang Feng did not have a good impression of him, the young officer did not irritate him any longer and walked away instead.
Seeing the officer’s moves, the fourty or so people looked at each other in a puzzled manner. They did nto understand what was going on.
This member of the Dragon Spirit Squad was just like a god in their eyes. However, after being teased by Wang Feng, he did not even have any temper. Was there anyone who could explain what was going on?
Did Wang Feng have someone powerful supporting him?
“Amazing.” Zhong Xiaoqian who stood in the crowd saw Wang Feng’s calm demeanor and could not help but admire softly.
He even dared to tease a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad. What dominance.
By the side, Dongfang Yu’er looked at Wang Feng. Although she was smiling on her face, her heart was still pulsating with pain. She did not even have the chance to be close to this man.
Before even confessing, she had already lost her chance. She felt the rim of her eyes become moist once again.
“Alright. In these seven days, I am very satisfied that the forty of you have managed to persist. However, don’t be happy too early. The upcoming test would be the one that would test your real battle strength. I will give all of you a day’s time to rest. On the following day, gather on the field.” The young officer spoke. His voice was loud, pushing everyone present to stand upright like a spear.
“I have said all I wanted to say. Disperse.”
With these words, the people on the field all dispersed together. Almost everyone had starved in the forest. Hence, now that they had the time, the first thing they had to do was to find food that would fill their stomachs.
They did not have Wang Feng’s capability who stole at least ten people’s food. Moreover, the food that he had stolen were not even finished.
Since this was a battle of survival, all who successfully survived rose in rank. There was no ranking of individuals.
The ranking of individuals would probably be determined by the following day’s test.
No matter how exceptional they were back in their own area, they had to be even more exceptional here. It was not a practice of the Dragon Spirit Squad to recruit trash.
Without looking for food to eat, Wang Feng immediately returned to his residence. In his house, besides his own, the other few beds had been tidied extremely cleanly. It was obvious that the people had left.
The people that had come in with him was only left with him. The rest had all been eliminated.
Since he did not lack food in the forest, Wang Feng did not feel hungry at all. He planned to take a simple shower and then go to bed.
In the forest, he had not been able to rest well at all. Now that he had rest properly for a few hours, it was of a tremendous boost to his energy.
However, right after he showered and just before he went to bed, a man walked in from the outside. It was Guang Mo, the man he had not seen for quite a few days.
He was different from the last time Wang Feng saw him. He now wore a suit of hard armour and he held a bag and some white wine in his hands that was very aromatic.
“Why aren’t you joining the celebratory party? Looking at Wang Feng, Guang Mo did not knock and walked straight in.
“What’s the benefit if I participate?” Wang Feng laughed bitterly.
“Alright. Let’s not talk about that first. I heard that the life you guys led in the forest were inhumane, so I brought all the good food and wine for you.” Guang Mo smiled and opened the bag in his hands. There were some cold appetizers in it that looked extremely delicious.
Although he was not hungry, he had been eating pressurized food every day. Wang Feng was already beginning to salivate.
Hence, he skipped all the polite mannerisms and immediately opened the bottle of wine that Guang Mo brought. He took a few sips, tried a few of those dishes and then immediately felt more relaxed.
“Officer, I doubt you’re here just to bring me food to eat?” Wang Feng spoke and put down the wine in his hands.
“I said I came today just to celebrate for you. Do you believe that?” Guang Mo laughed bitterly and said.
“I don’t believe that.” Wang Feng shook his head. Of course he did not believe that. He saw how strict Guang Mo was to him in the past. He would not believe that Guang Mo was here today just to celebrate for him.
Moreover, he had only survived from living in the forest. There was nothing to celebrate. He really did not understand what those people were thinking.
There was still an eliminatory competition the following day. If one did not rest properly now, what would there be to celebrate?
“I know you don’t believe me. I also did not expect you to believe my words. I have been leading teams here for about seven years now. Every year I’ve seen many different talents. However, they all end up in very unfortunate places by being eliminating in the process. They could not even persist till the last stage.”
As he spoke about past matters, Guang Mo genuinely felt depressed. He downed a few gulps of the wine into his mouth and continued saying, “I was once a member just like you. However, I failed at the end and did not become a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad. This is a regret that I have in my heart. It is a dream that I did not manage to realize after so many years.”
“However, the good thing is that I have become the middlemen to welcome new talents in. To be able to see you guys become a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad is also a solace to me. Except…”
As he spoke to this point, Guang Mo once again felt a pressure in his heart, as if a huge rock was weighing on it. He said, “Those people have no guts at all. There was no one who was successfuly. Even all those who came this time had all been defeated. There is only you left.”
“There is no need to say anymore. I understand where you are going.” Wang Feng cut off Guang Mo’s words, looked him in the eye and said, “I know you wish for me to become a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad, but I have never had such an idea. Even that young officer had recruited me personally. But I have rejected his offer.” Wang Feng said indifferently.
“What?” Having heard Wang Feng’s words, Gunag Mo immediately stood up from his seat with an incredulous expression on his face.
A personal recruitment by the Dragon Spirit Squad had never happened before. Every year, it was only after enduring much suffering that they become a proud member of the Dragon Spirit Squad.
Moreover, those who have failed are uncountable in numbers. Personal recruitment was something he had never heard before. But what stunned him most was not that the Dragon Spirit Squad had personally recruited him, but that he had rejected that offer.
“Why did you reject it?” After a while, Guang Mo looked at Wang Feng angrily and asked.
“Because I have never wanted to be part of the Dragon Spirit Squad. That is all.”
“What can I say to you?” Guang Mo suddenly vented out all his anger and sat on his chair. The opportunity that every cherished so much was so easily dismissed by Wang Feng.
It was an opportunity that people would fight to get. Yet, Wang Feng just let it go. It was unacceptable.
The reason why he came today was so that Wang Feng could help me achieve the dream he had previously. Now that Wang Feng had already rejected the Dragon Spirit Squad’s personal recruitment, it could be considered that he had come for nought today.
For all these years, the one who had the highest hope of being a Dragon Spirit Squad member, the person who could become a Dragon Spirit Squad member just by agreeing, had been lost.
“Since you don’t want to say, then just don’t say anything. There’s no big deal.” Wang Feng ate a mouthful of the cold appetizers and said indifferently.
“Wang Feng, do you know why so many people want to become a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad?” Suddenly, Guang Mo asked.
“Isn’t it just to show off in front of others? If not, it would be for the power.” Wang Feng said without a care.
“What you have said is perhaps reasonable. However, I want to tell you the biggest advantage of joining the Dragon Spirit Squad.” Guang Mo spoke, evoking a look of surprise in Wang Feng’s eyes.
Was there some hidden advantage to becoming a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad?
“What’s the benefit?”
“There are way too many benefits. I can’t list them all out for you. I can only tell you now that if you become a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad, then it would be equivalent to gaining a life-long gold medal. Just like in the ancient times, where people had the right to not die. The country has a rule. No matter how grave a mistake a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad has made, there would be no punishment dealt. This is all because the Dragon Spirit Squad is Huaxia’s most competent team. The people in that team have been picked through thousands of people. Any one of them are bright talents. If one of them was lost it would be an equal lost for the country.” Guang Mo spoke with an eye of envy.
This was only just one of the benefits. The other benefits were innumerable. He had no wayto list out all of them.
Ultimately, being a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad would mean you would have relatively absolute power in Huaxia. Besides the leader of the country, any other officer would not be able to stand in one’s way.
This was the scariest thing about being a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad. This was also the reason why so many elites were insistent about joining such a special team.
“Officer, I am a law-abiding citizen. Do you think there is any meaning in telling me all of these?” Wang Feng said, spoiling the entire mood.
“Regardless of whether it’s meaningufl or not, I wish you can become a member of the Dragon Spirit Squad. It is the best place to be for any soldier to be.”
“But I am not a solider.” Wang Feng’s comeback caused Guang Mo to feel a little angry.
Wang Feng was indeed not a solider. If it was not for Gui Jianchou’s favour, he would not have known Wang Feng. However, for such an exceptional person to not be part of the Dragon Spirit Squad was a big loss.
He could tell that Wang Feng had already raised his realm. Such a young Internal Strength master was not common even in the Dragon Spirit Squad. To be able to enter the squad would mean that he would have a big role to play.
“With your one word, I can immediately bring you some shortcuts. I have such a power.” Suddenly Guang Mo’s face turned solemn. His entire being emanted a steely aura.
“But I really genuinely do not have any dream of becoming a solider. So, don’t tell me so much about them. It’s really not worth it.” Wang Feng shook his head, leaving Guang Mo extremely helpless.
“There’s no space for negotiation at all?”
“No.” Wang Feng shook his head. Guang Mo sighed deeply. What a huge loss.
