Elder Cai was stunned. “Stop bullshitting! You’re an old hermit without a wife! Where did you get a granddaughter from?”
Zhuo Shi snorted. “This girl is right. I don’t care what you say. Today, I want all four of these children to join Shrek Academy. Don’t forget the final score is decided by the three of us together. You say Gu Yue deserves one point, and I think she’s earned at least four. That should give her enough to enter the outer court.”
“Enough with your nonsense.” Elder Cai’s voice dripped with wrath. “We decided on this earlier. What are you trying to pull now? No, I refuse.”
Tang Wulin lowered his head, a trace of doubt growing in his heart. That grandteacher sure changed his mind quickly!
“Then what will it take for you to accept?” It was obvious Zhuo Shi was not taking her stubbornness well.
Elder Cai eyed him, cold enough to freeze. “Have you forgotten why we’re having Tang Wulin take a makeup trial?”
Eyes shimmering, Zhou Shi came to a startling realization and swerved toward Tang Wulin. “Right! The makeup trial. According to Shrek Academy’s rules, a student can make one request if they score full marks on all the trials. Tang Wulin, you’re on the road to this in the seven trials that you got points. Just one more full score and you can request an extra point for that girl.”
Tang Wulin flicked his gaze from Zhuo Shi to Elder Cai. “But the fourth trial…”
Elder Cai said, “Fine, I’ll give you ten points for the fourth trial. If you manage a perfect score for the fifth in the makeup, then your tenth trial will also have full marks.”
The fifth trial? The second profession test?
Although Tang Wulin felt something was amiss, he nodded immediately anyway. “Alright. I’ll take the makeup trial.”
Gu Yue remained silent throughout the exchange. Tang Wulin had been waving a finger behind his back at her the entire time, warning her to keep calm, and she did so obediently for the time being. She wasn’t a fool. Of course she wished to enter Shrek Academy! Besides, her friends would follow if she was forced to leave, and that would harm their futures!
“What is your second profession? Are you confident?” Zhuo Shi asked.
Tang Wulin answered without any hesitation, “I’m certain I’ll ace this test.”
This prompted a snort from Elder Cai. “Don’t be so confident, brat. Do you even know the requirements to get a full score?”
Tang Wulin said, “Please advise me, Elder Cai.”
“It’s impossible to get a full score unless you have reached the fifth rank in your second profession,” Elder Cai said.
At her words, Zhuo Shi and Shen Yi’s eyes popped wide, almost comically. When did the fifth trial start demanding fifth-rank professionals?
Most outer court graduates don’t reach that level. In fact, isn’t that a requirement to enter the inner court? He’s just an examinee for the outer court though!
Tang Wulin was dumbstruck.
