Jake: "Well, I might as well get that test over with. I guess this will decided if I get to stay or if I have to leave. Either way this is the best time for me to do it before my condition decays again."
He quickly pulled out the medallion he was given by the matriarch. With no hesitation he squeezed down on it before an array shot out completely covering his body before being instantly transported in the middle of a room with 3 people standing side by side behind a crystal ball.
There was 2 males and 1 female, the male on the left looked like a scholar. Tall and handsome with black hair dark eyes and a fan in one hand, he was wearing a blue robe looking somewhat similar to the robe Jake made for himself. He was also the same height as Jake standing at a good 61.
The female in the center was about 54 with purple hair, a more reserved dress covering up most of her skin with long slightly translucent sleeves. She looked like a gentle maiden in a purple dress and a soft smile on her face.
The man on the right looked anything but elegant. His clothes couldn hide this mans muscles. He was obviously the biggest person in the room standing at about 65 with fire red hair the look of a beast in his eyes as he stood there with confidence looking at Jake as he arrived in the testing grounds.
Women: "Welcome Jake, my name is Scilla and I will be testing you on your aptitude for energy cultivation."
The women in the center stepped forward as she said those few words before stepping back and letting the others have their turn.
Soon the elegant scholar stepped forward as he looked at Jake with calm calculating eyes before starting his introduction.
Scholar: "My name is Ye Kai, I will be testing you on your aptitude with your Soul."
Ye Kai soon stepped back into position as the big man stepped forward.
Big Man: "And my names Burner, I will be testing you on your physique!"
Burner then stepped back as he lifts his hands and cracked his knuckles as if waiting for his turn.
Jake looked at the three of them as they introduce themselves. He couldn help but feel nervous after all the last time he had a test was in college. Now he feels like he has to take the SAT without studying on a topic he has never even heard of before.
In the end he lifted his hands copying those from different manga by cupping his palms and bowing before the three of them.
Jake: "Thank you for the help in advance seniors. I will be in your care."
Slowly he stood up straight and walked to the center of the room in front of the ball.
Scilla: "We shall start with your aptitude with energy cultivation. All you have to do is place your hand on the orb and it should show grade ranging from F-SSS to pass you need at least a C grade talent. I will say now that even if you do get a lower talent then required you will still have the chance to stay based off the scores of the other 2 subjects."
She slowly brought a hand out grasping his wrist before placing it down on the orb. Soon a array began to scan his body through the touch before a letter was ejected out the center.
Scilla: "…F huh. Well I am not to surprised, most mortals aren able to cultivate energy right off the bat from all the impurities in their body. Especially with all that Yang Qi filling your body it isn shocking to see that your meridians have shrunken to the point that they can hold Qi correctly."
She seemed to be consoling him as she pulled away from him and let the other 2 do their test.
Ye Kai: "I will be testing your soul next all I need is to feel your wrist and Ill be able to give you a accurate rating."
At this point Jake was beyond nervous having seen his horrible rating from before he couldn help but think that he was going to be thrown out if he didn get the requirements this time.
He Kai didn give him even a second to move as he grabbed Jakes wrist and began the examination. To his surprise Ye Kai gave him a look of astonishment, he could even see the glint of happiness in his eyes before releasing Jakes wrist.
Ye Kai: "I have never seen such a talent in cultivation techniques involving the soul! I dare say you have a SSS rank talent for soul cultivation!"
This obviously astonished the 3 of them, it was rare to even find someone who had a talent for soul cultivation let alone someone who was completely compatible with them!
Quickly the scholar pulled out a communication Jade placing it on his forehead as he looked away. He looked to be having some kind of urgent conversation but no words could be heard only the facial expressions could be seen changing as he told whoever it was on the other side what he has discovered.
Finally Burner stepped forward a smile on his face as he looked down at Jake.
Burner: "Stand still and flex your stomach. Grit your teeth and hold your ground. Its my turn!"
Jake instinctively did as the instructor said only to see Burner slamming his fist directly into Jakes stomach forcing him to spit up blood as he gets sent flying back. Quickly hitting the wall of the room before slumping down with his hand covering his caved in stomach.
Jake: "Fuck! Damnit I didn expect to be punched so hard today! Ahh! Shit!"
He bit his bottom lip drawing blood as the wound starts to revert back to its past condition.
Burner: "Haha! Hes not only good at Soul cultivation but his body is a S tier talent for physique cultivation!"
Jake was basically coughing his lungs out as burner was laughing. As if he was enjoying the thought of finding such a talent.
Burner: "Hey boy, you have passed the test and will now be taught the levels of cultivation for the three separate paths. After we explain everything you will be shown your living quarters in the outer court and given a new set of black robes indicating that you are a outer court disciple of the Silver Palace Sect!"
(I will be making a auxiliary chapter explaining the levels of cultivation for each path along with another chapter showing the pictures of what the characters should look like)
Scilla: "Now that you know the levels of the different paths you will be escorted to the outer court library where you will pick 2 techniques to cultivate your talents."
What she didn tell him was by escort she meant being sent there immediately after her words ended. With a wave of Scillas arm Jake was enveloped by some soft of energy oddly familiar to Jake. It felt almost like he was back floating in space before he suddenly disappeared and was thrown down in front of the outer court library.
Jake: "Wait what!? How did I get here all of a sudden! Didn she say she was going to have someone escort me!?"
Jake held his head a little dizzy from the sudden transport before looking at the door to the library.
He slowly brought himself to the entrance and opened the door before heading inside.
