The Dark King – Chapter 16
The stupid questions
“In here, I will teach you how to survive in hard conditions and environments.” Tobu indifferent spoke: “Today is your first day. I’ll give you rewards if you can answer few simple questions. ”
Eyes of the children were focused on him.
“The first question.” Tobu calmly said: “How can we stay alive?”
All of them could not help be surprised for a moment.
How to stay alive?
They never thought about it. From small age they were protected by their parents. Afterwards everyone planned to choose their favorite college during the adminissions. Later on work to earn and continue their lives.
“Make money!” A girl immediately raised her hands to answer.
Other children, suddenly sighed, yes ah! Of course you have to learn to make money if you want to live. Such a simple answer and they let a girl to take the advantage of situation to answer first!
Tobu still had an indifferent and unimpressed look, he spat out a word: “wrong!”
“Work?” Another boy tentatively spoke out.
Tobu glanced at him: “Wrong! By the way, everyone only has one chance to answer.”
All the children looked at each other.
It’s not making money, and it’s not working too?
“Teacher, you just ‘live’. Is there any situation to live?” A white skinned tender girl frowned.
Tobuu looked at her: “There is no situation to live.”
Hearing this, all children can not help but looked at each other.
Dudian also frowned slightly. His brain fluttered up to his observations. The answer should not be tricky. Actually the answer should be an easy one.
“To eat!” He raised his hand.
As soon as the words came out from Dudian’s mouth the children turned over to him with stunned expressions. It did not take long before ‘puchi’ sounds were echoed. All of them were laughing out loud.
Is there more idiotic answer than this?
“Right!” replied Tobu indifferently.
Children were stunned and perplexed: “…”
Looking at all the children stunned expression, Toby cold smile: “The simple answer. I was worried that no one would answer correctly and I will not give out a reward. In your minds in addition to lack of water what is more fatal to human life?
All the children had ugly looks. Some were not convinced. But having the experience of Tobu’s previous atrocities, no one would dare to question.
Dudian was relieved. Like other children he thought that the answer couldn’t be so simple but nevertheless his bet won him a reward.
“The second question.” Tobu continued: “How can we eat food?”
All children were confused. What kind of stupid question is this?
“Make money!” A voice quickly echoed. It was the little girl who was first to answer the first question. This time she choose to reply with the same answer.
Other children suddenly want to stomp. Damn the first one they missed and this chance was robbed by the girl.
“Wrong!” Tobu replied.
The little girl was surprised for a moment, how can you eat food with buying it?
Other children are also startled. But soon they quickly raised their hands to answer so that they not loose the chance for getting the reward.
“I know, I know. It is by working!”
“I know. My mother!”
“Use the upper and lower teeth to chew!”
The last boy thought of the simple answer to the previous Dudian’s contrarian thought, and immediately said tentatively.
Tobu could not help but look at him, his face showing a trace of ridicule, “Is there anyone who uses their ass to chew the food?
The boy’s face was embarrassed, blushing like blood.
“All wrong, a bunch of rubbish,” said Tobu.
Dudian did not expect to be last one to answer again as everyone had wrong answers. He was lost in thought, thinking back to previous thinking way. According to that kind of logic the first step to stay alive is to eat. So the first step to eat is …
“Find food!” Dudian once again raised his hand.
Tobu lightly looked at him, said: “Right!
All the children were again dumbfounded.
It’s that simple?
It’s that simple? ?? .
“Here’s the last question.” Tobu indifferent: “How to find food?
All the children can not help but look to the Dudian.
Dudian saw the eccentric eyes of children focused on him. His heart was frustrated. This time he really did not know the answer.
As they saw Dudian being silent, the children began to think their brains out. One after another raised their hands to answer. The answers were similar to the previous one. Especially the “make money” little girl. The third answer was still to make money, it seemed that she won’t stray from her thinking style. Ultimately all the answers were wrong.
Soon, after a round of answers, almost no one answered correctly.
Tobu looked around and said: “So no one knows?”
Several children standing near Dudian can not help but look to him, as he was the only one who has not answered.
Dudian felt their eyes, and even felt Tobu to look at him. It seems Tobu waited for him to answer. But this time he really does not know, can not think of an answer as all the other children have said out possible answers that he could think of.
“It seems that there is no one to answer.” Tobu saw Dudian did not answer so he no longer waited and explained: “The first step to find food is to learn to identify food. Today’s first lesson is to teach you to know which food to eat.”
Dudian understood the purpose of the three questions. Through the conversation with Mason yesterday, he confirmed his guess. No one knew about “scavenger” special training, all of them thought that it was just a guard training camp. Dudian knew from his previous conversation with Fernando that “scavengers” had to go outside the giant wall into the wilderness to look for resources. Their own resources to eat and drink would be limited while going out so they had to learn how to survive in the wilderness outside the giant wall.
Understanding the food was their first class!
“Teacher, what is my reward?” Dudian saw Toba has not yet announced, can not help but raise his hand to asked.
Tobo glanced at him and said: “Every answer is to be rewarded with a single breakfast. Congratulations ,you get two breakfast rewards. Today we have passed the breakfast time so you can only wait until tomorrow to use it”.
Dudian some stunne. He did not know yet but in a short period of half a month after the special training, he profoundly realized that how valuable those two breakfasts were!
“Now, the end of the rest, run ten laps around school field!” Tobu suddenly shouted.
All children can not help but startled, this has just finished but also have to run?
“Time is half an hour. For every five late minutes, plus a lap!” Tobu declared the rules indifferently.
“Teacher, do not ah … …”
Some of the children could not help crying, but soon took the lead to run at full speed because Tobu did not seem to be joking about extra laps.
Dudian’s mouth slightly convulsed. This rule was simply ruthless to him. But he had a faint guess, Tobu did this exercise to increase their endurance. According to Tobu’s argumentation and login, since it is learning how to survive then they should not exercise power and strength but speed and durability!
