Landon placed his hands behind his back and calmly observed the chosen candidates through a black screen.
Some leaned back with their heads tilted towards and their eyes shut tightly... But Landon knew that they weren't sleeping.
No... Such people were usually more awake and attentive than others.
Because even though their eyes were closed, their ears were as sharp as a fox's, as they listened to every little bit of noise all around them.
Some sat upright and read some books tgat they brought along, while others rested their heads on the tables instead.
In short, just from observation alone... One could see that every one of them had their own unique traits and characters as well.
"I've seen enough.
Let's go." Landon said, before turning around and exiting the room.
Now, it was time to meet these candidates face to face.
'Din! Din! Din! Din! Din! Din! Din! Din!'
Within the room, the candidates all heard a series of footsteps calmly approaching them.
And when they turned around and saw Landon leading the pack, their eyes bulged out io n shock.
Was this really his majesty Landon Barn?
"Oh my God... His majesty is here!
So does that mean that this whole thing is true?"
"Hahahahaha... I told you, but you never believed me!"
"Check it out!
That's Captain Yamado!
I heard that he's ranked on the 13th place within his ranks."
"Dammit, am I dreaming?
Isn't that the famous cold princess?
Isn't she Captain Gwenevieve?"
"Your right, it's her!
It's really her in the flesh!"
Having all these powerful people in one room can only mean that this matter is an important one.
So does anyone have a clue to what we were selected for?"
"I think it's a new squad group... Like the Panthers or Blood scorpions."
"No, I think it's a little bit different... Or else, why would they keep everything a secret?"
"Hmm... I think You might be right.
But if you are, then what exactly did we sign up for?
Just thinking about it makes my heart want to stop.
The anxiety is killing me.
Ahh!... I'm so happy that I got chosen!"
His majesty is probably the one who requested for all of this to be done.
So how can I not be happy to be on the team?"
Many candidates talked and whispered amongst themselves at the sight of Landon and the other invigilators.
Had his majesty and the other invigilators personally witnessed their performances?
From the moment that they got their advancement letters, they instantly knew that they had been watched the entire time whilst taking the tests.
And now seeing Landin, the couldn't help but wonder if they had truly given their all during the examination.
Their hearts pounded loudly the closer Landon and the rest got.....and their eyes shined with determination when they thought about this mysterious sector.
The candidates got up and stood at attention, while watching Landon calmly walk to the front of the class with the invigilators
"Sirs!" They shouted energetically.
"You all may be seated," Landon said calmly.
The candidates wasted no time and hastily took their seats.
Now..... it was time to find out what they had gotten themselves into.
"First of all, I would like to congratulate everyone for making it to this final stage.
Over the last few weeks, we have been observing you all keenly.
And we can only say that we were thoroughly impressed by your skills.
Now..... most of you have seen or are somewhat familiar with me as well as the military personnel standing beside me.
But should in case many of you don't recognize them, I'll let them introduce themselves just this once." Landon said while gesturing for the Captain at the furthest end of the line.
There were a total of 20 instructors in total, who were all somewhat famous.
Confirming their identities again, the candidates held in the screams of excitement in their hearts.
These were people that they also looked up to within the barracks.
Of course right now, they did their best to look as calm as a steady river.... But their mind and hearts were in total chaos!
The instructors introduced themselves, before giving room for Landon to take the floor once more.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's talk about why you all are here.
To put it simply, all of you have been chosen to join a special team.
But before I go any further, let me make something very clear..... The training that you will experience here, would be far more painful than anything that was previously taught to you within the barracks!
You will sweat, cry and even crawl on the ground from extreme pain... But in the ned, it will all be worth it!
But of course, if there are some of you with very low pain tolerances, then please exit the room now.
Because if you don't leave now, then you won't be able to do so until you pass the first 3 stages of training.
So those who want to leave... please exit the room now!"
The candidates all sat in absolute silence, and no one even made any attempt to get up.
What a joke!
After being in the military for so long, how could they be afraid of pain?
Of course, they had no idea what they were in for.
To them, they thought that 3 stages of training weren't too long.
So if it was truly unbearable, then they would quit then.
But how could they have known that they would be crying and begging for their lives very soon?
Landon looked at them and smiled.
