"What? 12th Elder?"
Seven elders tried hard to stay calm, but their faces were shocked and in disbelief. The 12th Elder they know was Baek Oh. But Yeowun, who had entered the Grand Hall, claimed himself as an elder.
'Where is Baek Oh? Why is he Wait.'
'Di-did he pass the sixth test?!'
They then realized what had happened while they were gone. The only way for Chun Yeowun, who was a cadet of the Academy, to become an elder was to pass the sixth test and defeat another elder. Yeowun had taken the Baek Oh's seat by defeating him.
'So, clan leaders knew this.'
The news of the sixth test already had swept through the entire castle, so all clan leaders knew that Yeowun had defeated Baek Oh and didn't seem surprised. But they too seemed astounded by a young man standing proudly in front of powerful elders.
'Was it why I couldn't find anyone from the Poison clan?'
