As long as one has the talent, they will be promoted. The year classifications were made only as a formality because the trainees were young children.
"This child is significantly faster to understand the drill instructor's intent compared to the youths in his class. When the drill instructor's assign a task, the students normally only look to themselves. However, Han deciphers the drill instructor's thought process and the ultimate goal of the task, only following this point would he take any action. He has been the fastest student to adapt during the survival and mock battle drills. As shown during the sparring matches with Sergeant Red and Dimitri, he has high perseverance and mental strength. Even without formal military training, he has enough mental strength."
Schwartz attempted to communicate with the main headquarter. The soldiers turned off their jamming device. Han's nerves relaxed at once, and he fell to the floor. It seemed like they were going to shoot Corporal Zhai during the confrontation. The transport plane arrived shortly, and Han fell asleep very quickly this time.
"I didn't come here to hear frosted words. I hope you understand just one thing. I'm also doing my job to the best of my ability for our world's future. I'm sure it will be hard for you to immediately understand. Losing against the dragons will mean the ultimate end for us, and it will seem like what we are doing is completely useless However, history has already proved that humans are not the most logical or wise creatures. They understand deep in their bones, and yet continue to make mistakes. A little step back will prevent co-destruction, but it seems our pride prevents this. However, if dragons do not invade, what do you think humanity would end up doing with all the leftover nuclear bombs? They will be used on each other."
Han had never behaved timidly in the face of adults. He had always been battling against adults to survive. He was vastly different to children who quietly complied to an adult's words.
Their fighting spirit rose high. Squad 13 had been inferior in all aspects, but had a overwhelming victory. Nobody thought they would be able to win through sheer battle tactics.
Han tried to catch his breath after he made it half way across. He felt dizzy and wanted to throw up. The blinding rainbow colored lights made it hard to see at all in this place. The lights flashed in rotation, attacking his eyes at every moment.
Han added some strength to aid his throwing power and fine adjusted the throwing arch with his telekinesis. With just a little fine tuning, his spear flew a frightening distance.
Just as breathing and walking is natural to humans, using psychic powers felt natural. The first generation of the acquired psykers trained for ten years to get to the level the inborn psykers had become in a mere one or two years.
The reason Kuro didn't bother to control more, was simply because he didn't feel like it.
The drill instructor spoke looking to the chattering children. The instructors understood the children's true thoughts behind the children's words.
Most of all, though they have been commanded to be here, the soldiers hearts were not satisfied with the current situation at all. It was a dirty plot no matter which angle you looked at this situation.
"The difference in their military strength is too great." Han mumbled while watching. Jose and Canute fought courageously, but it was impossible to stop Simon. Simon far surpassed any second year youth's levels.
"Jose and Canute, I'm sorry, but you're too weak compared to the second years. Please focus on strengthening yourselves stronger than everyone else within these three weeks. It's difficult for us to beat everyone head on by ourselves. Kuro and I have many weaknesses. To win, we must move together as a squad. We won't win through our individual strengths, but through our squad's strength. We will grab our victory by covering for each other."
Han's voice didn't shake at all. His tenacious intention of victory was relayed to them. Han felt a heavy burden on his shoulders. He held these three youths' futures on his shoulders.
"It's over." Corporal Zhai said as he exited the room. Han and Schwartz paused their conversation and stood up. They all carried Herald's body bag as they stepped into the elevator.
"First, the sweeper to defend our central headquarter will be Han. He's skilled with his weapon and has good agility."
They had not yet been selected by the squad leaders of this year. Han had been allowed first pick as a new squad.
The traitor leaked the whereabouts of Ark to the True Group military stronghold. In turn, the True Group decided to lead a frontal attack with their full force. Everything fit like a puzzle.
Many people working for Ark shared the same ultimate goal of destroying the dragons, yet worked against each other. It was much easier to understand the intruder's points of views.
Inspector Rue and Kuro took care of the enemies who came attacking from the back. Inspector Rue wore a colder expression than usual.
Han walked to class B's dormitories. When he walked out to the common corridor, the surrounding students started murmuring amongst themselves.
