Chief Instructor Lu didn't take any further notice of Bai Yuming. He just kept reading aloud the names. Finally, right at the end, Bai Yuming heard his own name.
He would get the lowest D-grade source fluid. Under no circumstances had Bai Yuming ever expected that he would actually obtain this sort of source fluid.
If the probability of forming a source core using an A-grade source fluid was 50%, then the probability of awakening a source core using a D-grade source fluid was just 5%.
Plus, the source cores formed by using D-grade source fluid were generally inferior.
Chief Instructor Lu had already left, so Bai Yuming could only sullenly follow the indifferent soldiers to the cultivation room. He clenched his teeth in an effort to accept this, but he wasn't able to say any discriminating words against that young man with a poor family background anymore.
Although Luo Yunyang hadn't witnessed this outcome. he had played a role in it. Bai Yuming's natural aptitude was decent, but Luo Yunyang had once again passed on his request to Chief Instructor Lu through Xu Zhong.
Xu Zhong had regrettably told Luo Yunyang that Chief Instructor Lu was an upright person that would definitely not do something like that, so when the results were announced, Xu Zhong, who had been standing on the sidelines, had felt a little foolish.
Luo Yunyang was the first to take his source fluid. The A-grade source fluid looked like a vial of cyan jade pearls inside the green crystal bottle. When the source fluid was injected into his body, Luo Yunyang felt his blood start to boil.
This sort of boiling sensation could drive a person crazy.
"Luo Yunyang, the best choice would be to clear your mind, calm down and get some sleep."
The person who helped Luo Yunyang inject the A-grade source fluid into his body was a lady in a white gown and a face mask. Although her face couldn't be seen clearly, her gender could still be determined.
"Although A-grade source fluid has the highest rate of success and possibility of awakening the strongest source core, it also causes the most intense pain. We are currently researching ways to create source fluids that cause less pain, but the results aren't that good."
The lady then added faintly, "I will give you some sedatives. You will most likely know the result by the time you wake up."
What Luo Yunyang needed to do right now was endure the pain. After the increase of his Constitution and Power, what he wanted the most was to improve his Mind Attribute.
How could he let such a good source fluid go to waste just like that?
"I don't need them. Thanks!" Luo Yunyang waved his hands before he shut his eyes gently.
The sensation of his blood boiling wasn't a very pleasant feeling. It actually felt like countless ants squirming all over his body.
The ants would gather and disperse from time to time, making Luo Yunyang unconsciously grit his teeth tightly.
About 15 minutes later, strings of green veins started to appear on his arm. His Golden Body didn't seem to have any effect.
His Mind Attribute increased to six points, seven points, eight points...
Thanks to these small increases, Luo Yunyang slowly realized that the ants squirming in his body were actually many specks of little lights.
These lights were like really tiny stars. Even though he could view them through his Mind Attribute, Luo Yunyang could still tell that they were really small.
The tiny scarlet stars gathering in his body had already started to converge into a lump.
Although this process was immensely different from the Moon-Swallowing Devil Ape Move and the Golden Sun-Devouring Dragon Move, thanks to his experience with those two, Luo Yunyang could tell that the current process was basically the formation of a source core.
Actually, the attribute of this source core was very similar to the power of the Golden Sun-Devouring Dragon in his body. They were both fire attributes, so it didn't seem like there would be too much of a difference between them. The newly-formed source core seemed to be slightly weaker than the source core formed by using the Golden Sun-Devouring Dragon.
This meant that, if this source core was awakened, it would be like a duplicate of the Golden Sun-Devouring Dragon's source core, so it wouldn't be much use to Luo Yunyang's cultivation progress.
Would the A-grade source fluid really be wasted on a source core like this?
Two similar source cores, one of a higher grade and one of a lower one, would have a hard time complementing one another.
One would be a repeat of the other, so they wouldn't be of much use together. Luo Yunyang knew that it wasn't the right time for him to hesitate.
His mind quickly swept through the specks of light in his body and detected a type of green speck that was even more luminous than the scarlet specks.
The number of these green light specks wasn't high, as the convergence of the scarlet specks made the green ones disperse.
Luo Yunyang willed the green specks of light to converge. Under the effect of his mind power, the green specks quickly gathered up.
The red specks of light, which seemed to be able to sense the threat of the green specks, formed a ball and rushed towards the green specks, which had yet to converge completely.
They obviously wanted to scatter the green specks of light.
Boom! As the red and green specks clashed, Luo Yunyang felt as though two earth-shattering forces had collided in his head.
That force, which only lasted for a moment, made Luo Yunyang feel slightly dizzy. However, he still kept gritting his teeth tightly.
I cannot faint! I can't awaken another scarlet source core! That wouldn't be of much use!
As Luo Yunyang kept raising his Mind Attribute, the glow of the green source core became even more magnificent and intense.
Eventually, after a final clash, the green specks of light that had converged broke open the red source core that had already formed.
As the red source core was broken with a loud rumble, Luo Yunyang felt truly relieved. It was also at this moment that he faded into unconsciousness.
When he woke up again, he saw a fat, sinister face smiling at him.
How could such an ugly face actually be smiling at him? Almost instinctively, Luo Yunyang punched that face.
When the punch landed on the face, which had been closing in on Luo Yunyang, Xu Zhong let out a blood-curdling screech.
His screech woke Luo Yunyang up completely. He suddenly realized who he had just sent flying.
Luo Yunyang quickly got to his feet and looked at Xu Zhong, who was sprawled outside the room, and Chief Instructor Lu, who was smiling at him.
"Chief Instructor!" Luo Yunyang felt only utmost respect for Chief Instructor Lu.
"You have taken a really long time to wake up, Yunyang. Ha ha ha Very good, very good!" Chief Instructor Lu's eyes were glowing as he regarded Luo Yunyang.
Luo Yunyang felt full of vigor. He was about to say something, when he suddenly heard someone say, "The commander is still waiting, Luo Yunyang. You better hurry up and get examined!"
