“Here’s our plan for the day,” Wu Zhangkong announced to the students standing before him. “First we head to the capital of the Star Luo Empire, Star Luo City, show off in some competitions against students from the Imperial Star Luo Academy. Then we’ll do some sightseeing. Once we’re done, we can go home.”
Tang Wulin listened eagerly as the plan was explained. The rest of his friends, on the other hand, seemed much calmer.
Xu Lizhi nudged Tang Wulin. “Captain, why do you look so giddy?”
Tang Wulin tilted his head, then touched his face to feel the smile still on his lips. “Huh? Do I really look like that?”
“Yeah!” Xu Lizhi exclaimed with a laugh. “You look super excited!”
Tang Wulin chuckled. He couldn’t deny Xu Lizhi’s claim. He truly was excited for what was to come. He was finally free from the torturous training he went through during the voyage. Just recalling the pain, itching, and soreness he experienced day after day sent shivers down his spine. He was now free from that hell.
However, those two months of training weren’t all bad. He also gained a lot from that torture. He was completely different from when he first boarded the ship.

Perhaps you would be interested in participating in the tournament? They’re a bit younger than their competition, but this is the largest tournament we hold for young soul masters. I’m sure they would perform well if they took part in it. It would be a great learning opportunity for them as well.”
Elder Cai chuckled. “We’re just here for cultural exchange. There’s no reason for us to compete.”
“Elder Cai, you know we don’t want to inconvenience you,” Sima Lanxiao said. “If your students want to participate, they won’t have to go through the preliminary matches. They can start with the knockout matches right away. The competition won’t take long at all, and the safety of your students will be guaranteed, of course.”
Elder Cai rolled her eyes. “I’m not worried about that.”
This response left Sima Lanxiao momentarily stunned. The next moment, however, understanding flashed through his eyes. “Sounds like you’re quite confident in your students!”
