Chapter 1


Ji Ruo sat in the penultimate row of the classroom by the window in Yonkers First High School, Grade 12, Class 4.
He looked out the window while covering his right eye with his left hand.

The teacher was talking nonstop on the podium.
Although Ji Ruo acted uninterested, he was actually listening attentively.

“Students, the college entrance examination is in three days.
As your teacher, the only thing I ask of you is to live.”

The corners of Ji Ruo’s mouth twitched.
Even after two months had passed since his transmigration, he was still not very used to it.

“Isn’t it outrageous that people die during their college entrance examination?” he wondered.

However, he had no choice given the circumstances.

Secret realms descended in 2025 A.D.
Countless demons ran amuck, and foreign races caused mayhem.

Although humans rose up in opposition, the ascension of the secret realms brought about the appearance of spiritual energy, which was incredibly beneficial to living beings.

Devils, on the other hand, possessed a variety of peculiar skills.

Demonic beasts, on the other hand, have extraordinary physical qualities and thick skin, making them difficult to strike with regular firearms – mainly because it was difficult to aim.

This, coupled with the descent of demons and devils, made mining various mineral resources extremely difficult.

The initial resistance from the humans was still fine.
Later, humans consumed a large number of stored resources amid the confrontation.
The battle line grew longer and longer, and they could not build a supply station.
As a result, the humans were overpowered in the midst of their resistance.

Later on, humans even used nuclear weapons in desperation.

The effect was quite apparent.

The demons and devils suffered innumerable losses, but there were simply too many of them.

As a result, people started using nuclear weapons to destroy entire regions.

The demons, however, underwent mutation due to the nuclear explosion’s radiation.
Some gradually evolved into silicon-based or even energy-based life forms.

The radiation caused mutations in the demons and disasters in the land.

At that time, humanity was almost extinct.


Fortunately, a talented Spirit Fist Grandmaster appeared.

He gradually discovered a means to fortify himself with spiritual energy—martial arts—by seeing and learning from demons.

A martial artist’s vitality could effectively kill demons.

The Grandmaster told everyone in a serious tone, “You have to use spiritual energy to defeat spiritual energy!”

Hence, the whole nation advocated martial arts.

A millennium had passed since then.

Technology had been redeveloped and was much more advanced than the world Ji Ruo had come from.

Of course, martial arts remained the more significant factor.

Everyone valued and respected martial arts in this society.

Therefore, in such a setting, all children would practice martial arts from an early age.
During the college entrance examination, they would be put into a secret realm humans had long governed for trial.

Although the realm had been controlled for a long time, there were always occasional mishaps because it was still a brutal massacre.

Even today, there was still a more than three percent mortality rate in the annual college entrance exam.
Most people failed the test because they were too afraid to hunt demons.

The college entrance examination had two rounds: the literary and martial arts exams.

The literary exam ended back in the second year of high school.
Ji Rui had not yet transmigrated then, but based on his memory, he had done well.

The teacher constantly emphasized to the students some precautions to take in the college entrance examination on the podium.
No student in the classroom felt fed up even though they were all cliché words.

Ding, ding!

When the bell rang, the form teacher took a deep look at his students, as if he wanted to engrave the faces of all his students in his mind.

“All of you must survive! This is your final high school assignment.
Everyone must survive this exam! Do you understand?”

“We understand!” the students responded brightly in unison.


The form teacher waved his hand.
“Okay.
Class is over.
Do remember to come and turn in your homework after the exam.”

After saying that, he left the classroom.

The students started talking amongst themselves right away.

While some were worried, some were also excited.
All in all, no one was afraid, and no one intended to give up.
