Elder Cai left, slamming the door shut behind her. Unseen by everyone present though, a smile had formed on her lips.
“Hehe. I bet that old fart Zhuo Shi is fuming right about now. Serves him right. Those brats are pretty good, tempering them a bit more should be fine.” She snorted at the thought of Gu Yue. “Since you dare to reject me, there will be a time when you come back begging.” She crossed her arms behind her back, her steps light as air as she departed.
Aggrieved and indignant, class zero arrived at at the site of the sixth trial.
The sixth trial was truly strange. It tested their capacity… to eat.
That’s right, it was a trial of eating.
In front of every person was a giant silver tray, and on top of that tray was a mountain of… steamed buns!
To one side was a sign that listed the requirements to receive points. It said that eating fifteen buns was a passing score and for every additional five buns eaten, another point would be rewarded. However, they weren’t permitted to circulate their soul power while eating and could only rely on their own stomachs.

The sturdier-than-normal bodies of soul masters prevented their stomachs from exploding, but that didn’t mean they couldn’t fall ill from overeating. This seemingly simple trial was, in fact, a devil in disguise, innocently dragging examinees through the depths of hell and making them wish for the sweet release of death.
However, today an irregularity had appeared!
“Thank you Teacher Shen,” Tang Wulin said sincerely. In his mind, this trial was practically made for him!
He reached out his hands, picking up two buns in each. The steamed buns were soft and bouncy, their round fullness delighting him even as his stomach rumbled from the delicious aroma of buns assaulting his nose.
