1857 Zheng Yang“s Girlfriend 1
It went without saying that a grade-8 pill could only be forged by an 8-star apothecary or above. Every single one of those pills was unbelievably invaluable. Even the king of the Tianxuan Kingdom would willingly abandon his position if he could acquire a grade-8 pill in return!
To actually give such a valuable pill to Mo Xiao without any hesitation…
Feeling the energy coursing through his body and his right leg healing up without a hitch, Mo Xiao felt as if he was dreaming. He hurriedly shook his head and exclaimed, "Zheng Yang, this is simply too expensive. I can't accept this gift from you!"
He had thought that it would just be an ordinary recovery pill. How in the world was he to know that it would actually be a legendary grade-8 pill?
Had he known that it was worth so much, he would never have swallowed it!
"There's no need to stand on ceremony—it's just a pill. Given our relationship, it's nothing at all!" Zheng Yang patted his good friend's shoulder as he spoke with a smile.
Even though their worlds had diverged from one another, their feelings still remained. The nature of their relationship might change, but he would always remember Mo Xiao to be the person who had practiced spearmanship along with him in his younger days.
Realizing that the young man standing before him was actually a fearsome figure, Lu Xun hurriedly walked over with a hint of deference in his eyes. "Mo Xiao, your friend is…"
A person who could afford to take out a grade-8 pill and gift it to another so easily… Without a doubt, the other party was not someone whom a 2-star master teacher like him could compare to.
"Teacher, he is…"
Perplexed to hear that his teacher was unable to recognize his good friend, Mo Xiao frowned in doubt. He was just about to introduce Zheng Yang when he heard a voice in his ears. "I think it will be best if you don't introduce me. Back then, things didn't end too happily between me and Lu Xun laoshi…"
Mo Xiao immediately trailed to a halt.
Indeed. Due to Lu Xun humiliating Zhang shi back then, his good friend, together with Zhao Ya and the others, had challenged Lu Xun to a duel and pummeled him in public, causing their relationship to be rather tense.
"He's a friend whom I met by coincidence. I just didn't think that he would have such a valuable pill in his possession!" Mo Xiao replied.
"I see." Lu Xun could detect that Mo Xiao was not being completely honest, but he chose not to probe any further.
He took a glance at Zhang Xuan and the others before nodding contemplatively.
"While the pill has raised your cultivation, you still have to reinforce it carefully before you are able to utilize it properly. Since that's the case, I won't bother you any longer. Let's meet again in the future!"
Having caused such a huge commotion, Zheng Yang felt that it would be awkward if he remained there. Thus, he bade his farewell to Mo Xiao before leaving with Zhang Xuan and the others.
At this point, there was no one amid the crowd who did not know that they were extraordinary, especially the young lady who had demanded the entrance fee from them earlier. She quickly rushed up to them, hoping to grasp the opportunity that she had missed earlier once more. However, barely after she took a few steps, her vision suddenly blurred. Before she knew it, their silhouettes had vanished, as if they had never appeared in the first place.
It was as if everything had been a dream. Even when she tried to recall the event earlier, she found that she was unable to recall their faces, let alone their unique traits.
"Wahhh!" The young lady collapsed to the ground and began bawling.
How could she have allowed such an opportunity to slip right through her fingers? At that moment, all she wanted to do was bawl her eyes out.
On the other hand, Lu Xun sent a telepathic message to Mo Xiao, remarking, "They are Zhang shi and his direct disciples."
It was hard to tell whether he was asking a question or simply making a statement.
"Teacher…" Mo Xiao's face reddened upon hearing those words.
It was clear to see that his good brother had been unwilling to reveal his identity publicly, but at the same time, he did not wish to lie to his teacher.
"I don't intend to put you in a tough position… The reason I was able to tell is because I can't think of anyone else who would come here and give you a grade-8 pill," Lu Xun said with a bitter smile. "Treasure your friend well. It's the greatest fortune of your life to know him."
Having cleared the 2-star master teacher examination, he was privy to some of the secrets of the world. Through his connections, he had learned that his rival from a year ago, after leaving Tianxuan Kingdom, had lived a brilliant life that shone like the stars in the sky. From time to time, he would hear of the other party performing some sort of spectacular feat that would leave the eyeballs of others popping out.
Many said that he was a genius as well, but compared to the other party… Well, there was probably no merit in making this comparison at all. The more he thought about it, the more he felt like a tadpole in a marsh standing in the face of a divine dragon of the Nine Heavens…
Seeing that his teacher knew the truth, Mo Xiao knew that there was no point hiding it at all. Unable to suppress his curiosity, he asked, "Teacher, you knew? If so, may I know if Zheng Yang is at Zhizun realm… or even higher than that?"
His first thought upon witnessing the other party's strength was that the other party had achieved a breakthrough to Zhizun realm. However, after he swallowed the pill and his cultivation rose to Transcendent Mortal 2-dan Origin Energy realm, he found that he was still unable to accurately perceive Zheng Yang's strength. It was only then that he realized that his good friend had already reached a level that even his teacher could only look up to.
"His current realm is not something that we are qualified to know. You only need to know that if your brother had fought seriously earlier, there's a good chance that the entire Tianxuan Kingdom might have disappeared completely from the map," Lu Xun replied helplessly.
"The entire Tianxuan Kingdom… disappearing from the map?" Mo Xiao's lower jaw fell slack in astonishment.
After leaving the auditorium, Zhang Xuan and his students headed to the classroom where they had studied in the past.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
There were no changes to the classroom; it looked as small and narrow as it had done before.
After looking around the classroom for a while, Zhang Xuan waved his hand and said, "You should go and reunite with your kin!"
Nodding, Wang Ying, Zhao Ya, and the others took their leave.
Wang Ying came from one of the Four Great Clans of Tianxuan Royal City, so her elder brother and father resided in the city. Zhao Ya's father was one of the highest officials of the Tianxuan Kingdom and was currently serving as the lord of Baiyu City, Naturally, she had to meet her father since she had finally returned.
As for Wei Ruyan and Lu Chong, as they had already lost all of their kin, they did not have anyone particular whom they really wanted to meet.
Shortly after Zhao Ya and the others left, Zheng Yang hesitated for a brief moment before asking, "Junior Ruyan… may I trouble you to come along with me?"
"What is it?" Wei Ruyan replied with a frown.
Perhaps it was due to the influence of her background or the Innate Poison Body, but she had a cold demeanor. Other than Zhang Xuan, she would rarely bother with others, even if the other party was her senior or junior.
While she was relatively closer to Zheng Yang, the truth was that they rarely spoke to one another.
"I need your help with something… it's about one of the regrets that I have been harboring thus far!" Zheng Yang spoke hesitantly.
"Oh? Very well then. What is it?" Wei Ruyan replied.
Her teacher had always told her that she should look after her juniors and seniors. Since Zheng Yang needed her help with something, as long as it was not too much trouble, she did not mind helping him.
"I would like to bring you to meet someone…"
"You want me to meet someone?" Wei Ruyan asked in bewilderment.
It was not as if Zheng Yang did not know that she did not take too well to anyone except for their teacher, so why did he still make such a request of her?
Seeing Wei Ruyan's expression, Zheng Yang hurriedly explained in embarrassment, "You don't have to say anything later on. You just have to stand on the spot, and it'll suffice…"
"Just who in the world is it? If the other party is strong, you can report it to our teacher and get his help," Wei Ruyan said.
"No, no! That isn't it. Not only is she not strong, she's extremely weak…"
At this point, Zheng Yang gritted his teeth tightly, as if making up his mind, before explaining, "To tell you the truth… Before I came under our teacher's tutelage, there was a girl whom I loved. I gave her my heart, only to be faced with cold mockery and rejection… Since I have returned here, I wanted to meet her once more. It's not that I still have feelings for her, but I want to put a full stop to this regret of mine…"
"In other words, you want me to act as your girlfriend?" Wei Ruyan scoffed.
Her senior was already the head of the Combat Master Hall, an Ancient Sage expert. Who could have thought that he would be such an amateur when it came to affairs relating to the heart?
So, because he had been rejected by the other party in the past, he wanted to find an even more beautiful person to act as his girlfriend so as to make the other party regret rejecting him?
What a childish act it was!
Had she been in his shoes, there was no way that she would have resorted to something as meaningless as that. If the other party dared reject her, she would have just poisoned the other party to death. It would be an utter waste of breath to thrash things out and speak so much nonsense.
