The selection competition finally began. All the teams from all the academies in the Howling Abyss began the first day of the competition.
Shen Yanxiao did not spectate the match.
In the evening, the members of the Flaming Red Squad returned with the news of victory.
There were no surprises in this victory. The returning teenagers chatted for a while before they went to rest.
The entire preselection would take about a week. After seven days, eight teams would be selected for the final round.
Kehr took the time to check on the teenagers of the Flaming Red Squad, asked them some questions, and then left. The whole Flaming Red Squad was in a very good state. Kehr was confident that he could see them in the final round.
News of victory continuously spread between the two teams in the inn. The students of the Flaming Red Squad and the Royal Academy were already secretly competing with each other. No one was willing to lose here.
The waves under the calm sea surged like the tide, making all the contestants full of energy.
As the leader of the Flaming Red Squad, Shen Yanxiao became more and more nervous.
One day, two days, three days. Shen Yanxiao stayed in her room and constantly trained, constantly calculating the passage of time.
When the first ray of sunlight shone on the ground on the fifth morning, Shen Yanxiao suddenly jumped out of bed.
She could not sleep all night.
“Taotie.” Shen Yanxiao stood by the window and looked at the scenery outside before summoning Taotie.
Taotie appeared and looked up at Shen Yanxiao.
“Are they… here?” Shen Yanxiao’s voice was a little dry.
Taotie opened his mouth and whispered, “Yes.”
Shen Yanxiao’s breathing froze. Her entire body was stiff as if struck by an electric current, and her mind was blank.
Shen Yanxiao opened the window and felt the cool breeze in the morning.
Her breathing became more and more difficult. She stared at everything outside the window, trying to find something.
A slight sound came from behind her.
Shen Yanxiao’s body immediately stiffened.
A familiar voice sounded behind her. Shen Yanxiao suddenly turned around and the face that had appeared several times in her dreams finally appeared before her eyes.
“Xiu…” Shen Yanxiao’s voice trembled. She had always thought of herself as a calm person, but at that moment, she could no longer remain calm.
Xiu stood at the door. His handsome face had not changed in the slightest, but his golden eyes were no longer cold.
Xiu walked towards Shen Yanxiao step by step. He opened his arms, wanting to embrace the person he missed dearly.
However, just as Xiu was about to touch Shen Yanxiao, a trace of light flickered between the two of them. Immediately after, Shen Yanxiao’s body seemed to have been electrocuted as she felt waves of pain.
Xiu’s hands froze in mid-air.
The Dragon God, who had been standing at the door, immediately stepped forward and pulled Xiu’s arm.
“She’s an undead now. Your power… She can’t bear it.” The Dragon God frowned. It was impossible for Xiu not to know this. His eagerness to hug Shen Yanxiao was clearly because his yearning for her had been suppressed for too long, and his actions were no longer under the control of reason.
Xiu’s eyebrows wrinkled slightly. Looking at Shen Yanxiao, who was only one step away, and looking at her face that was slightly wrinkled due to pain, his heart seemed to be broken.
He was so close, but he could not embrace her.
His approach was harmful to her.
“Xiu?” After the pain faded, Shen Yanxiao raised her head hesitantly.
