He had never hated any opponent he had gone up against so much before either. At that moment, Harold wanted to stomp Jackie beneath his feet and make sure that Jackie would never make a comeback. Only then would he be happy.
Elder Eliot looked at Jackie with much interest, as if he was awaiting a reaction from Jackie’s expression. Unfortunately, Jackie did not seem to be showing any emotion at all.
The more Jackie acted like that, the more curious Elder Eliot was. Elder Eliot waved to the rest of the crowd.
“Alright, the best have already been placed. You have a little more time to prepare. After that, the test will start.
“The test will be four hours long. If you haven’t completed the test in four hours, you still have to hand over the condensing
card that will be passed to you.”
The moment Elder Eliot spoke, everyone respectfully answered him. They used the time they had to compose themselves.
From what happened, it was obvious that Elder Eliot was not stern for no reason. He had his own rules and regulations. With that in mind, Jackie let out a sigh.
He wondered if he should try to get closer to Elder Eliot. From the earlier conversation, Jackie could tell that Elder Eliot’s relationship with Harold was not as good as he thought.
The two of them were closer compared to a normal student, but it was not that great. If he could get a bit closer to Elder Eliot, he would probably not have to worry about Harold.
After the thoughts played around in his mind, he suddenly heard footsteps in front of him. When he looked up, he saw that Harold had turned around and started walking back to his spot.
“Hold on.” Jackie suddenly said.
Harold frowned as he said without turning his head around, “What do you want? Are you trying to argue with me again? Are you regretting things now?”
Jackie frowned, feeling like Harold’s brain was a bit different from his, but there were some things he felt like he should ask.
He took a deep breath and suppressed the urge to insult Harold as he asked the question he wanted to, “You should have participated in these tests before. What’s the best result you’ve gotten?”
Jackie wanted to use Harold as a benchmark to see what he needed to do. When Herald heard that, he had a surprised expression on his face.
It was obvious what Jackie wanted to know. Harold had not wanted to answer Jackie, but he would seem nervous if he did not. He did
not want to lose face in front of Jackie.
He turned to look at Jackie and said in a sinister tone, “I’ve never been below the top ten list here.
“If you want to beat me, you need to at least be in the top five places. However, you can forget about that. You should be celebrating if you’re able to even get into the top thirty!”
After getting that answer, Jackie nodded without any delay. He sat back onto his own mat. Harold felt even angrier looking at Jackie’s actions.
He did not know why he was so unlucky every time he saw Jackie. The moment Jackie sat back down on the mat, he had already discarded all those useless thoughts.
Rudy whispered to Jackie from behind, “Jackie, no matter what, I’ve been completely convinced by you. Even though I don’t know where your courage comes from, I’ll still support you!”
Jackie raised an eyebrow before nodding, but he did not say anything else. After Harold sat on his own mat, he started to pant heavily. It was obvious that Jackie’s words. had managed to unsettle him.
