Spare Me, Great Lord! - Chapter 82
Chapter 82: Shi Xuejin! (Part 2)
Lu Shu, who was far from home in school, had no idea what had happened at home and started to feel rather uneasy.
From Li Xianyi’s words, this Shi Xuejin who was well-versed in all of The Three Teachings could be someone important in the heavenly network. Why else would he research about training methods especially for the heavenly network?
Could he be… A heavenly king?
Why did Lu Xiaoyu generate distress points from such a person? He did not understand, and not understanding gave him a sort of unease.
Lu Shu could no longer sit still. He decided that he should buy a smartphone for Lu Xiaoyu so that they could communicate more conveniently. A smartphone costs merely about 100 dollars on the resale market, there was no need to save such money.
With the stable income from the stinky tofu, Lu Shu was more willing to spend on extra, non-necessities.
Lu Shu went to the staff room to apply for a day off from Shi Qingyan. Shi Qingyan took a glance at Lu Shu. This was not the first time he had applied for a day off so urgently and despite his queries, Lu Shu kept his silence.
If it was someone else, Shi Qingyan would have wanted a call from his parents or the request would be denied.
But on one hand he was clear that Lu Shu did not have any parent, and on the other, Lu Shu was a student of the Daoyuan class!
Society now did not function like it used to. When it comes to matters regarding the Daoyuan class, the school handles everything on a case-by-case basis.
If one of them got into trouble in society, someone from the heavenly network would naturally settle the problem. It might either be through education or bringing the offender away.
In school, however, the teachers of the past have taken an awkward position. It felt as if they had no authority to care as much as they used to. In a practical point of view, these students have already been transferred to the supervision of that mysterious department.
Shi Qingyan nodded his head, “Go ahead. Tell me if you need anything.”
This was Shi Qingyan’s stance right from the start. He wanted to help this orphaned student all along, but Lu Shu never showed any sign of needing anyone’s help.
Lu Shu started dashing towards the school door. Shi Qingyan looked at Lu Shu from the school hall and alongside him were a few other teachers. Looking at his immense speed, the other teachers gasped, “Running so quickly? What do they teach them in Daoyuan class?”
They were, however, not especially shocked by his immense speed. Subconsciously, everyone had slowly accepted all these new changes, especially since there has been footage of Metahumans all around the country recklessly displaying their superhuman abilities. Everyone had already begun accepting the integration of these metahumans into society.
It comes as no surprise that people on forums would say that this was the age of the metahumans, and sports of the past face an imminent and huge overhaul. Facing metahumans with astounding physical capabilities, ordinary people could no longer compete.
How would new rules and regulations be determined in the future? Perhaps this would be the most troubling issue for the Olympic Committee. If they were to ban metahumans from participating, they would still have trouble as it would be tough to identify strength-type metahumans due to their lack of energy waves. How would they check who was a metahuman and who wasn’t?
As Lu Shu dashed to the door as fast as he could, he realized that he had forgotten to obtain a leave slip from Shi Qingyan. He was not permitted to leave without the slip of paper.
In a state of frenzy, Lu Shu whipped out his Daoyuan pass, and the security guards immediately opened the door at the sight of it.
This was a physical example of the special advantages of students from Daoyuan class!
Lu Shu was suddenly immersed in his thoughts. If society starts to give Daoyuan students special advantages, with many boys and girls preferring to date metahumans, the diminishing authority of teachers, the imposing fatherly and motherly figures of parents threatened at home, together with the increase in strength and power of these metahumans, would all these factors bring out tyranny and cultivate a negative character in young metahumans?
Ultimately, this was not an issue for him to mull over. It was the duty of those lower-tiered members of the heavenly network.
If something chaotic really happens due to Daoyuan class, perhaps all students of Daoyuan class would receive even stricter management.
Just as Lu Shu got home, he was greeted by a baffling sight. He saw Li Xianyi, Lu Xiaoyu and an average-looking middle-aged man chatting joyously. Lu Xiaoyu’s eyes lit up upon seeing Lu Shu, “Lu Shu, what brings you back?”
How should Lu Shu respond? He could not mention the fact that he received the distress points through her right? That would give his system away, wouldn’t it?
He thought for a moment before saying, “I’m back to take some stuff.”
“Ohh,” Lu Xiaoyu understood Lu Shu the most. If nothing happened, why would Lu Shu come back suddenly? When did Lu Shu ever leave something at home?
However, she did not dumbly give Lu Shu away. When it comes to matters of the mind and wisdom, Lu Xiaoyu was very mature.
That middle-aged man smiled and after glancing at Li Xianyi, looked at Lu Shu and asked, “Young man, you are?”
“A student of Luo Cheng International School, sophomore class 3.” Lu Shu replied seemingly honestly. However, this answer was not true at all.
The middle-aged man showed no doubt. In fact, he had already looked up on the people staying next to Li Xianyi before coming up, and there was no problem at all.
He then turned to Li Xianyi and smiled, “It seems like the nature of this young man is not bad, you haven’t thought of accepting him as your disciple?”
Li Xianyi spoke indifferently, “Tier F aptitude, a waste of my time.”
Lu Shu was stunned. This was not how Li Xianyi does stuff usually. However, he did not wish to sound out any opinion without further understanding of the current situation.
And having looked up on them before, Shi Xuejin knew in his heart that Lu Shu had a tierF aptitude. Whatever Li Xianyi said about a tier F wasting his time, he empathized and understood.
Although the teachings of Daoyuan class touched on motivating everyone to not give up, they were all very clear in their hearts on how many practitioners with tier F aptitudes could be cultivated.
So what if this young man learns swordplay from Li Xianyi?
He rose and gestured at Li Xianyi, “I’ve learned much from chatting with you today, men like yourself are a rare sight today. I would not hinder your time anymore, but I still have one last thing to say.”
Li Xianyi said calmly, “Please, go ahead.”
“Recently, ancient remains have been resurfacing the country. The Golden Foundation must know about this situation as well. They belong to a part of our country and hopefully, the Golden Foundation wouldn’t meddle in this,” Shi Xuejin looked bluntly at Li Xianyi, “You can kill me with the stroke of a sword. No one can stop you.”
Li Xianyi waved his hand, “Go, why do I have to kill you?”
“Much thanks, but that statement still stands. The last position of the heavenly kings, we are reserving it with hope. Hopefully, there comes a day we could work with The Golden Foundation. After all, we all wish for peace in the world.” Having finished, Shi Xuejin turned and left.
