The top school fell into a frenzy, and everyone was badmouthing Lin Feng. The school board was also rapidly deciding on his punishment.
Meanwhile, Lin Feng had returned to his own home.
As the immortal examination was approaching, they were allowed to skip classes if there were no centralized activities held for third year students.
Today's confession had made Lin Feng the target of public criticism. He had no doubt that if he stayed in the school compound, he would most likely be beaten up.
But at this moment, he did not have the time to think about this.
This was because the system reward had completed its adaptation to the current world. The materialization was completed and all he had to do was receive it.
In the next second, Lin Feng chose to receive the reward. He was filled with anticipation. Even if he became a pariah, even if he was reviled by others, or beaten up, he had confessed to the school belle in public and gotten this reward.
The Five Thunder Technique was the first one, the Thunder of Fire. Although he did not know what it was, he knew it was extraordinary. It was also suitable for his current world and would definitely be of great help to him.
In the next second, Lin Feng silently muttered the word 'receive'.
Immediately after, a lightning imprint that flickered with red light instantly appeared in front of him.
The moment this imprint appeared, Lin Feng could hear the sound of electric currents. He could even sense an incredibly destructive aura coming from it. At this moment, all the hair on his body stood up.
However, before he could come back to his senses, the lightning mark instantly headed straight for the space between his eyebrows.
Lin Feng only felt as though he was being shackled. He was completely unable to move or dodge.
He could only watch helplessly as the lightning mark, which seemed to be able to destroy everything, landed between his eyebrows.
At this moment, Lin Feng felt as though he had been struck by lightning. his entire body went numb and he completely lost all senses and the ability to move. Even his thought process seemed to have frozen.
Electric currents were flowing through his body.
As the electric currents flowed, green smoke wafted from his body, as if he was being burned by the terrifying lightning.
After only holding on for a second, Lin Feng's vision turned black and he lost all feeling. He had actually fainted.
However, what he did not know was that even when he was unconscious, the electric current was still flowing through his body. The green smoke was still coming out of him as well.
It was as if it was burning away impurities and transforming his body.
Lin Feng's aura also grew stronger and stronger.
The first step on the path of cultivation was the Body-Strengthening Realm. The goal was to strengthen the body, open up the aperture acupoints, clear the meridians, and open up the qi palace to prime his body for drawing qi and building a suitable foundation.
Before this, Lin Feng's level was similar to the other students. He had almost completed the cultivation of the Body-Strengthening Realm. He only needed to draw enough qi into his body, refine essence into qi and officially step into the Qi Gathering Realm.
But at this moment, as the lightning coursed through him, there were actually more specks of light appearing on Lin Feng's body.
This was an aperture.
He had opened a few dozen apertures, but at this moment, a total of 360 light spots appeared on his body.
Even the aperture acupoints that had been opened before were rapidly becoming brighter. This was a sign that the aperture had been polished.
Then, lines connected the dots of light, as if they were constructing a complex system.
His meridians were unclogged.
After that, another ray of light shot out from his dantian.
This was a sign that his qi palace was also being forcefully opened up to become larger and sturdier.
The lightning was really transforming his body.
In an instant, the light from his entire body gathered and disappeared in a flash.
However, this was not the end. Then, it happened again. Light spots appeared on his body, and more lines joined them together. More rays of light came out from his dantian.
The second tempering was a multi-tiered tempering that was exclusive to geniuses. Lin Feng's body was automatically undergoing it right now.
At the same time, in the school, even though the morale-boosting rally had ended, the news of Lin Feng's confession spread like wildfire.
He had truly become a pariah and a bad example.
The school board also held a meeting, and the higher-ups of the school were discussing Lin Feng's punishment.
Very quickly, they decided on his punishment. Lin Feng was given a probation period of one month as a major demerit.
When this result came out, many people were quite critical.
Indeed, this punishment was too light. It was only a major demerit and probation. He was not expelled, nor was he disqualified from the immortal examination.
Many people had their own speculations. The reason why Lin Feng was given a chance was most likely related to his background.
Lin Feng was the orphan of a night patroller. His parents were both night patrollers but both of them died in a battle with the monsters. They died during the night patrol of the Fifth Southern District.
The school had provided him with all his needs for school, and the Great Zhou empire had even given him a lot of preferential treatment and compensation.
However, the moment this guess was made, everyone snorted with even more contempt for Lin Feng.
He was not only a bad example, but also a result of poor parenting.
However, at this moment, in an instructor's dormitory, an extremely beautiful woman with an excellent figure was very angry.
"This Lin Feng ..."
Lin Feng had evaded expulsion because his parents were martyrs. However, no one knew that this guest part-time tutor, known as the scariest tutor, was also one of the reasons he did not get expelled. She was also the senior of the first two batches of geniuses and she had interceded for him.
However, she was extremely unhappy. Lin Feng had actually confessed to the school belle, Qin Yiren, in front of everyone.
He was the same as everyone else. She was extremely disgusted by Lin Feng's actions.
As soon as she entered, she complained to an old man in the dormitory.
"Grandpa, what are you thinking? This Lin Feng has a D-grade five-element spiritual root and is still so unmotivated. Why do you want me to intercede on his behalf?"
The old man grinned.
"There's no special reason. It's just that his parents are martyrs who patrolled the night! "
The terrifying teacher, Su Qingqing frowned.
The old man waved his hand.
"Well, we can't just expel him. The immortal examination is coming up. At least leave him some hope. After all, we're both night watchers. We can't just leave him in the lurch! "
Since the old man had already said so, Su Qingqing could not argue the issue further. She could only sit down angrily.
The night patrolman's orphan, a martyr...
Ordinary people would just admire him, but Su Qingqing was a night patroller. Her grandfather, who was one of the top leaders of the Great Zhou dynasty and the founder of the night patrollers, had a special relationship with the orphans of the night patrollers.
She could understand this.
The old man and the young woman continued to chat.
"Grandpa, are you that free? Why did you come here? Do you want to replace Teacher Zhu on the testing grounds?"
"Don't bother, don't ask. Just do what you should be doing!"
"Grandpa... Don't tell me you're thinking of taking him in as a disciple. Is that your so-called plan?"
"Don't ask what you shouldn't be asking!"
"Grandpa, tell me. Oh, what do you think of Qin Yiren?"
"She's all right..."
At this moment, Lin Feng still did not know that he had dodged a calamity. If not, being expelled from the academy and having his qualification to take the immortal examination revoked would be equivalent to cutting off his path of advancement.
He did not know how long he had been unconscious. When he slowly woke up, he was shocked to find that he seemed to have undergone a tremendous change.
