Chapter 185: Elroy’s Thoughts
That afternoon in S country’s elite training camp, the training grounds were no longer full of sweaty students, and the assembly hall was empty.
At the end of the awards ceremony, the 201st elite training program’s flag came down as S Country’s 400 future elites left. The training camp returned to peace.
However, the teachers and instructors did not stop working hard to prepare for the next batch of students.
Meanwhile, Red Spider stood next to Old Mur in his office, waiting for him to review the name list she had just submitted.
“This is the list of candidates we’ve just prepared, sir. Please have a look.” Red Spider returned to her expressionless self. Her tone was still as frigid as ever.
Old Mur nodded and carefully looked at the documents. His office was not spacious but ordinary and straightforward. There was an ordinary desk, a conference table that could accommodate ten people, and some necessary equipment.
Apart from the cabinet behind Old Mur, which he filled with his accolades, one could not tell it was an office that belonged to the training program’s battalion commander.
“Excellent work. You are meticulous as always, Red Spider.” Old Mur smiled, thought of something, and added, “Call the person-in-charge of the Magical Beast Emergency Defense Center later and explain the reason for more appearances of sophomore students this time around. Give them a detailed description of Moss’s performance too.”
Old Mur was confident after looking at the next batch of candidates.
Even when faced with the Magical Beast Emergency Defense Center, or EDC, filled with elites, Old Mur was confident in the list of candidates he would provide them. He knew it would play a more critical role in the future.
“Yes, sir!” After that, Red Spider saluted Old Mur and turned around to leave.
Old Mur fell into deep thought as he watched Red Spider leave.
Ring, ring, ring!
Hearing his phone ringing, Fling Wolf put down the materials in his hands to answer the call.
“Deputy Chief Instructor Flying Wolf, this is Elroy.”
Flying Wolf smiled when he heard White Deer High’s director on the phone. He asked, “What is it, Brother? Are you worried about me?”
“Hahaha, I just wanted to know how my students performed in the training program,” Elroy replied.
“Their overall performance was commendable, especially Moss. He won the Best Graduate award for this year’s training program.”
“Oh?! Is that so?!” Elroy was impressed.
Flying Wolf was not surprised to hear Elroy’s shocked reaction. “Yeah, you heard right, Brother. You will receive a detailed explanation of your students’ performances soon.”
Elroy also asked about the rivaling schools’ students and how they performed in the elite training program before ending the call.
Flying Wolf could not help but mutter after putting down his phone, “You’re still your usual bold self, Brother. You’re so old, yet you still recommend students to us without restraint. I can learn something from you.”

After the phone call with Flying Wolf, Elroy turned on his computer and clicked on a Magical Beast Crisis folder. It contained information about the threat Magical Beasts posed to humans from when Elroy was on the front lines to when he retired from the army to when he became an educator.
Elroy felt that the Magical Beasts were wreaking more havoc worldwide, and their appearances had become increasingly frequent. However, he was unsure where or when the Magical Beasts would run rampant again.
It was the first time since Elroy retired from the army that he felt another impending Magical beast outbreak. It made him feel a strong sense of urgency.
He thought of his glory days, blood-stained battlefields, and his comrades fighting bloody battles just for these precious living conditions. Elroy’s heart became turbulent, and it took him a while to calm down.
“No! I must assist more outstanding students in improving themselves as much as possible before the next outbreak!” Elroy knew what he must do.
Only by assisting more students with better resources could they be prepared before the impending crisis. From its looks, he needed to send more outstanding students to college as soon as possible so they could serve society.
Elroy relaxed a little at that thought. He hurriedly picked up his phone and dialed Na’er’s number. “Na’er, gather all second and third-year students for a meeting in half an hour!”
Elroy hung up soon after hearing Na’er’s respectful and affirmative reply. Then he picked up a pen and wrote some names on a piece of paper.
Fifteen minutes later, the second and third-year students sat in White Deer High’s conference room alongside Na’er. The entire conference room was shrouded in clouds of suspicion.
No one knew why Elroy had called everyone over so urgently. The teachers started discussing in groups of threes and fives.
“What’s with the urgency? I have to tend to the third-year students’ battle lessons.”
“Yeah, I have a lot going on too.”
“Nothing is more important than the college entrance exams!”
“I agree. The college entrance exams are in 58 days, and the enrollment procedures are strict! I’m feeling the pressure!”
The teacher in charge of class one looked at the second and third-year teachers, then Miss Aisha. She asked, “Miss Aisha, why do you think Director Elroy called us here so urgently?”
“I don’t have a clue, either. Still, it should be important. Otherwise, Director Elroy wouldn’t have called us in such a hurry, especially during the students’ preparations for the college entrance exams.” Miss Aisha was just as puzzled as everyone else.
Miss Aisha’s tasks for the second-year students were not that important. Recently, she only worried about how Moss and Alan did in the elite training program.
Suddenly, Elroy barged into the conference room. He went to his seat, put down his hat, and handed a piece of paper to Na’er with a severe expression. He thundered, “Na’er, show this on the big screen!”
Elroy looked at the teachers as the screen turned on. Then he said, “I know times are hard for everyone, especially the third-year teachers, but I have gathered you all here because I have an urgent matter to discuss!”
Afterward, he turned to look at the big screen, and the teachers on both sides of the conference table followed suit.
