Chapter 154: 36 Army Special Forces Competition (Part two)
Xu Cheng thought for a second and then replied, “Senior Brother, thank you for the kind offer. I made my decision. I will just go back to the 5th Military Region.”
Wen Zhao was so pissed his eyeballs were about to shoot out. After trying this hard to persuade him, this guy was still going back to the 5th Military Region?
“I don’t even know what to say anymore.”
“It’s okay, my pants won’t fall. This time, I will bring my team to the 36 Army Drill Competition. Thanks Senior Brother for telling me about G20. I’m going to go to work now,” Xu Cheng smiled and said as he got into his car and drove away. On the way, he called his instructor back at the army camp.
“Sir, the top 3 in the 36 Army Drill Competition can participate in G20? Why didn’t you tell me about this?” Xu Cheng was a bit dissatisfied.
“Tell you a fart. What’s that going to do? Which year had we ever had a shot? Not to mention top 3, even if one day we can get into the top 20, I would be so happy! That’s why I was too lazy to tell you.” His instructor was shouting on the other end. “I didn’t even hope for it when we had you, Luo Yi, and Li Wei. This year, I’m definitely not getting my hopes up.”
Xu Cheng was speechless. It did seem like that was the case. In the past, even with the Three Swordsmen all present, the best they did was get into the top 22. This whole G20 thing was none of their business.
But this year was different. Xu Cheng was very ambitious because he got a good understanding of the skill level of the top teams among the 36 army regions. Now, not only was his power unmatched, he also had hack-level abilities like his penetrating-vision and ultrasonic waves! Whether it was camouflage, terrain, or jungle obstacles, they were simply child’s play to him!
That’s right, he was that confident, and that was why Xu Cheng suddenly wanted to find out more about G20; he felt he was now qualified to fight for it!
On the other end, the instructor was curious as to why he was suddenly so interested, so he asked, “Why do you care? Don’t tell me you are coming back to attend it this year?”
Xu Cheng replied, “After I take care of the things over here, I’m coming back.”
Instructor: “Wait, don’t. You are doing well over there, do you know how many soldiers retire and can’t do anything after? People work hard in the military to get a good placement after they retire, but some people just can’t get used to a life outside of the army. I see you are actually quite talented with police work, so don’t fool around and come back, because you can’t accomplish more than what you have now if you come back to the military.”
“I’m not fooling around,” Xu Cheng said, “After I’m done the West Gate case, I will be resigning and coming back to the military. I already told the director. And who said a soldier can’t accomplish more?”
“Who said a soldier can? There’s no war right now, where can you get the accomplishments to climb up in ranks?” His instructor asked back, “After the reform, it’s very hard to climb up in ranks. You don’t have a background, and it’s very difficult for someone without a military family background to get promoted.”
Xu Cheng paused for a moment and said, “What about joining the Dragon Division?”
The instructor’s pupils shrunk slightly. “Joining? Are you still thinking about trying out for the Dragon Division?”
He was a bit helpless. In fact, according to the doctor at the Academy of Sciences, the toxic liquid that was injected into Xu Cheng’s body would leave him only a few short months left to live. The instructor didn’t have the heart to tell Xu Cheng about this. The Dragon Division obviously wouldn’t want a recruit that had only a few months left to live. The instructor knew that if he told Xu Cheng about this, he might get beaten down mentally and collapse, probably making him die even faster.
However, what the scientists and researchers didn’t know was that Xu Cheng somehow gained terrifying talents.
Hearing the tone, Xu Cheng curiously asked, “The Dragon Division didn’t specify that those that failed once won’t be able to participate again, right? I want to try again, Big Bro, can you try to get me another tryout opportunity?”
The instructor bitterly smiled…
