About 300 people had gathered before the teaching building. But at this moment, it was so quiet that you could hear a pin if it dropped. Everyone widened their eyes as they stared at Sun Mo, so shocked that they weren’t able to say anything.
(Has this fellow gone crazy?)
(He actually dares to publicly provoke a 1-star great teacher?)
Lu Zhiruo glanced at the surroundings in a panic. On the other hand, Li Ziqi’s spirits stirred. As expected, she hadn’t chosen the wrong teacher.
This step that Sun Mo took to move forward was truly tyrannical!
Favorable impression points from Li Ziqi +6.
Prestige connection with Li Ziqi. Neutral: (56/100).
Lian Zheng also didn’t imagine Sun Mo would do something so out of bounds. He halted in astonishment. After that, his boorish face revealed a look of extreme rage.
Lian Zheng roared.
Sun Mo stared at Lian Zheng, and his body inclined forward slightly. Baring his teeth, he enunciated each word slowly, “I have an opinion. Hence, I blocked your way!”
The entire atmosphere was so quiet that it felt terrifying. This was especially so for those intern teachers. All of them had fallen into a daze. (Wasn’t Sun Mo just berated by a great teacher? What’s the great deal about it? He actually dared to retort? Does he want to be fired?)
“Although you don’t find this student suitable, can’t you be more tactful about it and show some care for his pride?”
Sun Mo used his Divine Sight and observed Jiang Leng. He discovered that Jiang Leng’s will had already fallen to 0. Another note appeared – Target is extremely disappointed and might commit suicide anytime!
Lian Zheng didn’t know how much damage his casual reply had caused a student who had been continuously rejected. His final life-saving straw was destroyed by Lian Zheng.
“No matter what’s my attitude, it’s not up to an intern teacher like you to lecture me!”
Lian Zheng berated.
Sun Mo’s fists instantly clenched. He stared at Lian Zheng and he vowed in his heart. He definitely had to specialize in a secondary occupation within half-a-year and pass the test issued by the Saint Gate, gaining a great teacher title.
Damn, at that time, he would definitely say, ‘You are just a great teacher that’s almost 40 years in age, how shameful’. At that time, he wanted to see if Lian Zheng still dared to use his status to pressure others or not.
“Ding! New mission. Please become a 1-star great teacher within a year. Reward: Two golden treasure chests!”
The system issued a mission that was apt to the occasion.
“System, which camp do you belong to? You actually cause trouble for me at such a moment?”
Sun Mo was unhappy.
“Why? You are reluctant to accept it?” Lian Zheng stared at Jiang Leng. “Since you look down on my attitude and pity him, why don’t you accept him as your disciple?”
“Aiya, this old man is so sinister.”
Li Ziqi mumbled in her heart. She hurriedly came over and was preparing to stop Sun Mo.
Lian Zheng wanted to push Sun Mo into the fire pit. The young man with the word ‘trash’ on his forehead definitely had no future. If Sun Mo accepted him as a disciple, there would certainly be a large taint on his reputation.
“Teacher, my stomach hurts. Can you quickly bring me to see a doctor?”
Li Ziqi clutched her stomach and showed a face of agony.
Lian Zheng had long since noticed Li Ziqi. Now that he saw her pretending to be sick to help Sun Mo get out of this predicament, he grew even angrier.
Why was such a good student following Sun Mo?
“Teacher, let’s take a step back?”
Li Ziqi tugged on Sun Mo’s clothes as she persuaded in a low voice.
“Take a step back? Ziqi, in my dictionary, there are no such words. Even if a mountain obstructs my path, I will shift the mountain aside. Even if an ocean blocks me, I will reclaim it in its entirety. I, Sun Mo, won’t give way, won’t retreat, won’t concede!”
Sun Mo waved his hands. He pushed Li Ziqi’s hand away and stared straight at Lian Zheng.
Li Ziqi was stunned. Sun Mo’s words resounded out loud, and each word was filled with force. They were like iron hammers smashing on her brain.
Yue Rongbo who was in the crowd involuntarily wanted to clap and praise when he heard this. After that, his gaze shifted to the left as he saw Jin Mujie who was standing under a parasol tree not far away.
“Damn, this fellow is so brazen!”
An intern teacher couldn’t help but shout. Although his words openly showed contempt, he felt somewhat impressed in his heart. This was retorting a great teacher. If he was in Sun Mo’s shoes, let alone causing a great teacher to be angry, he would have long since swallowed his anger.
“What is that teacher’s name?”
The students began to ask in a low voice.
Lian Zheng’s hands were folded before his chest. He was calm and unruffled as he stared at Sun Mo. His tone was that of ridicule. “Very well then, why don’t you accept him as a disciple?!”
Sun Mo looked at Jiang Leng. “You have heard everything, right? What’s your decision?”
A bead of sweat appeared on Jiang Leng’s forehead.
“According to your situation, this is your only chance in life to acknowledge a master. You better know how to grab hold of this opportunity!” Lian Zheng chortled.
“Although Teacher Sun is an intern teacher, he is a very awesome one. He would definitely not waste your time.”
Li Ziqi was very intelligent. Although her words appeared to be openly praising Sun Mo, she actually meant something else. She was warning Jiang Leng not to be foolish. She didn’t want such trash as her junior apprentice-brother.
“Right, teacher is really very awesome!”
Lu Zhiruo ran over and stood behind Sun Mo. After saying this sentence loudly, she cowered back again, only revealing her eyes as she watched.
“Aiya, you stupid fool!”
Li Ziqi really wanted to strangle Lu Zhiruo. This papaya girl’s words were sincere, and she worshiped Sun Mo from the bottom of her heart.
Jiang Leng was hesitating. Earlier, he tried to acknowledge many masters but no one was willing to take him in. Now that someone was willing to do so, he suddenly began to worry about his future and whether this person would be a good teacher or not.
The scenes of his childhood began to appear from the depths of his mind. They caused Jiang Leng to turn pale. It was unbearable.
“It’s rare for such a ‘good’ teacher to accept you as a disciple. What are you waiting for?”
Lian Zheng urged.
“Sun…Teacher Sun…can you let me become a…saint?”
When Jiang Leng said the word ‘saint’, he also felt bashful. Because even he himself felt that it was impossible. However, if he didn’t ask, he would feel reluctant in his heart.
“Haha, is he dreaming?”
Mocking laughter rang out from the crowd. This fellow truly didn’t know the immensity of heavens and earth.
Sun Mo really wanted to shoot back at Jiang Leng. Wasn’t he aware of his own situation? He could become half of a saint (圣人), if things went on.
However, when Sun Mo stared at the hope-filled eyes of the young man, as well as the word ‘trash’ on his forehead, Sun Mo swallowed his initial mocking response, and he decided to smile instead.
“I don’t dare to guarantee whether you can become a saint or not. But I can guarantee that I will do my best to teach you. Your achievements in the future will still depend on your own effort.”
Sun Mo wasn’t kidding when he said this. This was the principle he scrupulously abided by ever since he became a teacher. He wouldn’t treat any student differently regardless of their results.
“Are you dumb? Why are you asking such a question? Even Sun Mo doesn’t dare to guarantee he himself can become a saint!”
Lian Zheng felt even angrier, and his spittle almost flew onto Jiang Leng’s face. The Central Province Academy mustn’t allow such a fool to join them.
“If a human doesn’t have dreams, what will be the difference between them and salted fish?!”
Sun Mo stared at Lian Zheng. If youth didn’t have dreams and only acted realistically, was there still any meaning in this world? Would this world have any future?
A golden light began to emit from the angered Sun Mo.
“It’s the Priceless Advice Halo!”
Someone exclaimed in shock.
Swish~ Swish~ Swish~
The golden light was like fine rain scattering outward, enveloping a range of 100 meters and engulfing the audience in the crowd.
They also began to shine with golden light, and their minds and spirits were instantly stirred. Those forgotten dreams of theirs began to rise again.
For a time, the noisy environment fell back into silence. Everyone sank into an indescribable mood.
(That’s right, who doesn’t have dreams?!)
Being able to enter a famous school, being capable enough to chase the girl they secretly admired, finding a good job…
Even getting full marks and becoming the number one student for a time could also be considered a dazzling dream!
“Becoming a saint…”
Lian Zheng mumbled. When he regained his senses, only then did he realize that tears were flowing down his face.
He was once a young man and had hot blood too, brimming with ambition. But when he was close to 40, he was still a 1-star great teacher. Let alone becoming a saint, he would already feel very content if he could become a 4-star great teacher before his death.
Li Ziqi was so excited that she was panting when she saw people in the surroundings immersed in the atmosphere of recollection due to Sun Mo’s Priceless Advice Halo. Even that great teacher whom she loathed was no exception as well.
“Yay, teacher is so awesome!”
Favorable impression points from Li Ziqi +15.
Prestige connection with Li Ziqi. Neutral (71/100).
Lu Zhiruo gazed at Sun Mo with a look of worship. Her finger, which was holding on to his clothes, exerted even more force.
Favorable impression points from Lu Zhiruo +30.
Prestige connection with Lu Zhiruo. Neutral (68/100).
After hearing the system notifications, Sun Mo’s lips twitched. As expected, honest people would contribute more favorable impression points.
“Hmph, you are on your own!”
Lian Zheng, who had just awakened, snorted while flicking his sleeves as he left. He no longer had any mood to look for trouble.
“Teacher Sun, please accept me, Jiang Leng, as your student!”
Jiang Leng knelt and kowtowed.
Favorable impression points from Jiang Leng +30.
Prestige connection with Jiang Leng unlocked. Current state: Neutral (30/100).
The effect of Sun Mo’s Priceless Advice Halo was the greatest for Jiang Leng, allowing him to pull himself together again.
“Quickly get up!”
Sun Mo glanced at him again and discovered that his will stat had +2. The note about his inclination of committing suicide had vanished.
Li Ziqi sighed in her heart, but since it had been done, she could only acknowledge it. She put on a smiling face. “Junior brother Jiang, I’m the eldest martial sister. This is Lu Zhiruo, your second senior martial sister.”
She wanted to settle the level of their statuses first. After everyone agreed, even if Lu Zhiruo or Xuanyuan Po were to regret it in the future, it would already be impossible to change anything.
“Maybe the teacher I acknowledge isn’t that bad.”
Jiang Leng greeted Li Ziqi and Lu Zhiruo while seriously surveying Sun Mo for the first time. Sun Mo was very young.
Without a good show to watch, the people in the surroundings dispersed as well.
“What do you think?”
“How can I think? Sun Mo is too impulsive, letting emotions affect his decision. He dug a huge hole for himself, and I dare to confirm that Jiang Leng will definitely become a huge taint on his path of becoming a teacher!”
“That Jiang Leng’s aptitude is definitely extremely bad. He was abandoned by everyone, so how bad do you think it is? This must be the reason why someone carved the word ‘trash’ on his forehead, right?”
The surrounding teachers departed as they discussed. In any case, they didn’t think highly of Sun Mo. He had basically trashed his own career. Such a way of acting was truly too foolish.
Jin Mujie had long since left, but she was thinking about the young man who had helped her massage her neck a few days ago at the Sorrowless Lake.
“So, you are Sun Mo!”
Jun Mujie felt a little surprised. He didn’t seem to be as inferior as what the rumors had stated. Also, that sentence ‘I, Sun Mo, won’t give way, won’t retreat, won’t concede!’ was truly well-spoken. Even she wanted to clap and cheer for him!
Jin Mujie abruptly halted. She turned her head back and stared in the distance. Speaking of which, his massage technique was very good. Ever since her neck was massaged by him, she felt extremely comfortable during these few days. Should she take the initiative to ask him for a massage?
