Chapter 23: Lunar Academy

The trio left the city and headed west. Grey already knew they were heading towards the Academy, so he just stayed quiet without speaking much.

“So where are you from?” Klaus broke the silence. Since they would be walking all the way to the Academy, he might as well have a conversation with Grey. If only Chris had allowed them to take a carriage, it would have been better, but he refused when Klaus brought it up.

“I’m from Red City, it’s a long way from here,” Grey replied.

“Oh, I’ve never heard of it” Klaus thought for a while before responding.

“It’s not a big place, so it’s normal you don’t know about it” Grey flashed a smile on his face.

“How come you came together with Senior Chris, I thought he went out to get new students” Klaus asked with a puzzled expression. He had never seen Chris come back with a kid older than the age of 12 whenever he heads out for the test. Sometimes, he doesn’t even return with anyone.

Chris went out for the usual annual test for new kids who just awoken their elements. But seeing him returning with someone who was fully over the age was surprising.

“Well, I just awakened my element” Grey figured there was no use in lying to Klaus since they would attend the same Academy and would get to see each other.

“What!” Klaus was startled when he heard this. This was something he didn’t expect.

“Did you wait until now before you had the test?” Klaus asked, this was the only reason he could think of when he heard what Grey said. But it was unexpected that someone would delay until they were over 12 years old before taking the test. This would put you at a big disadvantage with your peers, since they would have already cultivated to a higher level before you can even start cultivating.

“No. I had the test once, when I was still 12 years old. But I failed to awaken my element at that time, so after waiting for 4 years, I took the test again” Grey explained.

“Wait, you failed to awaken your element?” Klaus was dumbstruck when he heard this statement. This was totally outrageous, not being able to awaken an element at the age of 12 was usually very rare. But, being able to awaken your element after failing to do so while you were 12 years old, was even rarer.

Since there weren’t many people who didn’t awaken their element when they were 12 years old, so the amount who could later awaken their element were few in numbers. In fact, in the Qilin empire, there haven’t been any such case happening in recent times.

“Yes, Senior was also present on the day I failed the test. He was the only one who spoke encouraging words to me that day” Grey recounted what he could. Although he remembered little, he still recalled what Chris said to him.

“So, what element did you awaken after the test?” Klaus asked curiously.

“Lightning and Earth element” Grey replied hiding nothing from him.

“You’re a Dual Elementalist?” Klaus exclaimed.

Chris looked back when heard Klaus’ shout. Klaus immediately closed his mouth, fearing to anger Chris.

“Yes, I am” Grey answered.

Klaus felt fascinated by Grey’s story. This was something truly shocking. At first, he couldn’t awaken an element, then later on, he awakened not only one but two elements. And one of them was the rare lightning element, and they generally regarded the other as the element with the best defense.

With lightning’s terrifying attack, coupled with earth’s resilient defense, he could say Grey was a perfect fighter, wielding both attack and defense, respectively.

“How about you, what element did you awaken during your test?” Grey inquired.

“Well, I’m a Water Elementalist” Klaus declared with a calm voice. He had already been at the Academy for some time now.

“Okay” Grey thought of his mother when he heard Klaus was a Water Elementalist. He knew she was terrifying. Luckily, she only freezes his legs and doesn’t do more whenever he messes up.

Grey and Klaus continued talking as they walked closer to the Academy. Grey got to find out there were 5 halls in the Academy, with each hall representing an element. There was the Water Hall, the Fire Hall, the Earth Hall, the Wind Hall, and the Lightning Hall. There were also special classes which took place at the Academy.

Each hall was further divided into 3 classes for 3 cultivation planes, respectively. Collection Plane students are in the 1st class in their subsequent elemental hall. The Fusion Plane students are in the 2nd class. While the third class were for the Arcane students.

Klaus was already in the 3rd class, which was for the Arcane Plane students. Grey was astonished by how fast they cultivate. He also found out Klaus was a Purple graded talent just like him(for now).

How long would it take him to get to the Arcane Plane?. Well, he couldn’t wait. Apart from the time Chris looked at Klaus, he didn’t interrupt their conversation, not even once during their entire journey. They reached the Academy before long, and Grey stood awed by it.

Well, if he says the gate of Lunar City was the largest he had seen, then the gate of Lunar Academy was the grandest. The gate erected at over 9 meters high, with a width reaching over 6 meters. The designs on the gates seemed life like, and when Grey looked closely, he could see the image of a Phoenix at the center of the gate.

They headed into the Academy grounds, the Academy was clearly bigger than Red City. The moment they entered the Academy, Chris immediately ditched Grey and only instructed Klaus on what to do before disappearing.

Grey glanced at the unreliable Chris without much reactions. Since he already had a good relationship with Klaus, he didn’t have any problems with Klaus showing him around.

“So where are we headed first?” Grey asked with some enthusiasm.

“We’re going to get you registered first of all. Then after that, I’ll introduce the Academy to you,” Klaus told Grey his plan.

Grey agreed with it. Since he was here, he should register as a student of the Academy.

Klaus and Grey discussed as they headed in the direction of the registration building.
