Chapter 58: Extensive Assessment
The icy female instructor with a ponytail frowned at Shi Wenbin’s mistake and scolded him, “Is this how you repay your comrade for believing in you?”
“I’m sorry, Ma’am, I… I saw the guy that broke the machine the other day…”
That partner that got his foot smacked by the dumbbell rubbed his feet and said with a pained expression, “That monster?!”
When he lifted his head and saw Xu Cheng walking past them, his pupils enlarged as well as his mouth.
The female instructor followed their gaze and saw Xu Cheng as well. Her frowning eyebrows immediately relaxed and she ordered the two soldiers, “Go back to practicing.”
The two soldiers nodded and continued on with their strength training, and the female instructor went and quickly paced after Xu Cheng.
Xu Cheng already felt that he was being followed from the ultrasound feedback he was getting. When he was at a turn, the female instructor followed as well and was completely caught by surprise when she saw Xu Cheng waiting right at the other side of the corner, blocking her way.
“You are stalking me?”
“This is a private clubhouse, any area is open to members, I have the freedom to go wherever I want so there’s no such thing as stalking,” the female instructor calmly said.
Xu Cheng didn’t feel like stooping to her level, especially since he didn’t even know her. He never believed that beautiful women would fall in love with him at first sight, and he also knew that what Shen Yao said today was just to change his mind.
He didn’t know when it started, but he was always felt a bit repulsed by women. Of course, not all women. For instance, he recognized his childhood sweetheart, Lin Chuxue. As for where the repulsive feeling came from, it was probably because of his past of being abandoned by his mother.
The female instructor did appear to have deliberately approached Xu Cheng. Seeing that he just turned around and left, she immediately said, “Since you are coming here to train, you probably need a professional instructor right? I can guide you.”
Xu Cheng didn’t need any professional training for basic skills right this. In fact, he was more than qualified to be an instructor himself at the military. He didn’t lack experience nor skills, he just came here wanting to understand his current comprehensive strength.
So, he didn’t react to the female instructor at all and just kept on walking.
Faced with Xu Cheng’s disregard, the female instructor felt that it was better to prove her own strength first. Besides, after seeing Xu Cheng’s power from last time, she also wanted to get to know more about him and research how this guy could deliver more than a thousand kilograms of force with just one arm.
Since words were obviously not working, she decided to just go for it and use her most confident move to teach Xu Cheng a lesson, proving that she was more than capable of being his instructor.
However, it seemed like Xu Cheng had eyes behind his head, the moment she extended her feet to try to trip Xu Cheng, he took a step forward with that foot. The female instructor immediately reached forward to use her angle to hook only Xu Cheng’s foot, reaching out her other leg to complete a scissor lock, ready to twist her body to put Xu Cheng down.
However, who knew that after the female instructor applied force, Xu Cheng would remain standing there firmly like a mountain, not moving at all.
Seeing his foot locked by the female instructor’s scissor legs, he frowned and turned around to look at her, who currently had a shocked expression on her face. Seeing that her technique didn’t work, she gritted her teeth and tried to apply even more strength, while Xu Cheng just stood there and looked at her awkwardly, letting her do her thing.
“I’m not like your two soldiers,” Xu Cheng said half-jokingly, and then he immediately twisted his waist, bringing his leg around and immediately sending the instructor flying out.
The female instructor suddenly felt like she was flying for a bit before landing on one knee. She got up and looked at Xu Cheng in shock.
“You want to be my instructor with just that? Let me tell you, before you can fully assess the strength of your opponent’s lower half, the most direct way to trip someone is to push your knee into the back of their knees and lock them by their throat with your arm, simple and brutal,” Xu Cheng said.
The female instructor gritted her teeth, feeling embarrassed being instructed by someone she was trying to teach a lesson to. What was most awkward was that she tried to catch him off guard and surprise him with a sneak attack, yet her technique was not only diffused by him, but she was also humiliated.
But she knew she was at fault for attacking first, so she stood up and awkwardly said, “I’m sorry, but I just want to ask something. Have you served in the military before?”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Just retired.”
The female instructor blinked her eyes. “Which one? I’ve never heard of you.”
“I was at the FIfth Military Region, but it doesn’t matter now. I’m already out. It’s quite a rare sight to see a female instructor from the army,” Xu Cheng replied.
“You look down on women?” The female instructor glared at Xu Cheng. Maybe it was because she heard that Xu Cheng was also a soldier, but her attitude towards him took a big turn and she became very casual with him.
Xu Cheng smiled. “Nope, I’m just happy to see the military breaking the old norm, finally realizing that women can make just as fine of a soldier as men.”
The female instructor became silent for a second and then extended her hand. “I’m Wang Ying.”
Since the lady took the initiative to reach out her hand, Xu Cheng wouldn’t be impolite. He shook her hand and said, “Xu Cheng.”
Wang Ying awkwardly said, “Sorry about earlier, I just…”
Xu Cheng smiled. “I know male soldiers’ rough tempers really well, and I also understand a female soldier’s temper.”
Wang Ying immediately laughed. “My temper isn’t usually like this…”
The two soldiers working those dumbbells were immediately dumbfounded seeing this scene. “Holy crap, did you notice that Instructor Wang, who rarely smiles as if smiling costs money, is talking and smiling a lot today? Holy crap, look at her smiling at that monster! She actually took the initiative to approach a man and even smiled at him? Oh my god…”
Shi Wenbin: “Holy crap, I’ve never seen this casual side of our Goddess before.”
Wang Ying felt that she at least got to acquaint herself with Xu Cheng, and just when she was about to leave, Xu Cheng said, “Actually, I do need someone to help me out. I might not be able to do the assessment by myself.”
Wang Ying stopped her steps and immediately replied, “Sure, what do you need me to help you with?”
“Listening, reflex, speed, and extreme strength tests.” Xu Cheng replied, “I need someone to record my stats for these tests. To be honest, I haven’t done an extensive assessment of my body for a while now.”
Wang Ying nodded. She was very curious in Xu Cheng, and this couldn’t be a better opportunity to learn more about him.
“Sure, how do you want to test? Same as what we do in the army?”
Xu Cheng blinked a few times. “Maybe the procedures at the army don’t suit me, I might need to raise the assessment difficulty.”
Wang Ying’s pupils contracted. “Raise?”
