Lin Yanyu glanced backward with a hint of dissatisfaction.
Mo Fan was right on point. The two things he hated the most in his life were someone touching his bow tie, or calling him a sissy.
The man had committed a serious offense, enough to grant him the worst death penalty. He would lose his reputation at Pearl Institute if he could not get his revenge.
“Brother Dongfang, why are you stopping me? You just want to preserve your good image in front of Mu Nujiao, but I don’t f**king care,” said Lin Yanyu furiously.
“I don’t want you to take a beating,” said Dongfang Ming.
“Why would I take a beating… wait, are you implying that he’s stronger than me?” It sounded fairly ridiculous to Lin Yanyu.
Only a few students in the entire Pearl Institute were worthy to be his opponent. He would never believe a jerk with no manners could be comparable to him.
Dongfang Ming had his pride, too. He did not want to mention how he was defeated by Mo Fan when he was sent after him and Tangyue previously.
He vaguely answered Lin Yanyu’s question and quickly left the place. Meanwhile, he mumbled to himself, “So that guy is also from Pearl Institute, why haven’t I seen him before?”
Lin Yanyu assumed Dongfang Ming was just trying to be a gentleman in front of Mu Nujiao. Either way, he would never forgive that guy called Mo Fan…
Meanwhile, Mo Fan headed straight to the Dean’s Office to report in. Along the way, he could not help but murmur, “I was once the demon king among the new students, yet it seems like everyone has completely forgotten me within half a year’s time. That’s not good news. Even Tom, Dick, and Harry dared threaten to break my hands. Most importantly, he was complaining that I was not handsome enough!”
Mo Fan did not bother knocking. He pushed the door open and barged in. “Dean Xiao, I’m here to report for duty!”
The office was seated with several teachers who had fairly high positions in the school, and some student representatives. Everyone was staring at the impolite Mo Fan with blank faces.
“Which Element are you from? How dare you act so lawlessly in the Dean’s Office? Do you want your name erased?” scolded an Elemental Director.
The few students from the student council were left speechless, too. Even those who were famous representatives for the students had to mind their attitude and words in front of the Dean. They never thought anyone would dare to barge in like that. Surely, the man was tired of having a peaceful life at Pearl Institute!
Dean Xiao was also angered by the sudden interruption. He still had to preserve his authority in front of the teachers and the students. However, his anger quickly vanished when he saw it was Mo Fan.
He waved his hand and said to the teachers and students, “We’ll call it a day. I’ll organize a meeting some other time.”
The teachers and students were stunned. They never recalled Dean Xiao having such a close relationship…
The crowd quickly left the office, leaving Mo Fan alone with Dean Xiao.
Dean Xiao wore a blossoming smile, with a hint of relief. His first words were, “Are you alright?”
“Of course, somehow I quite miss you after being gone for half a year,” said Mo Fan with a smile.
His words were sincere. Dean Xiao had been taking good care of him since he came to Pearl Institute. He was definitely a senior worthy of his respect.
“I told Zhan Kong to announce to the public that you were dead, as I was concerned about your safety. Speaking of which, it was quite a miracle that you managed to survive the aftereffect of the Demon Element. It was our fault too, being unable to give you the right protection. After all, your Double Innate Elements is too special,” said Dean Xiao.
“It was my fault for showing it too early. Well, at least I’m still alive now. I managed to come back here to continue my studies,” said Mo Fan.
Dean Xiao nodded. That was truly a relief to everyone.
“Dean Xiao, I shall head back to class if there’s nothing else you have in mind. Oh, by the way, I would like to change to a different Element,” said Mo Fan.
“You’re not planning to stay in the Summoning Element?” Dean Xiao was rather surprised.
“You couldn’t even form a soccer team with the number of people in the Summoning Element, not to mention that there are no girls at all. It’s too boring. Move me to the Fire Element, at least it’s still a popular Element in the school. I believe it will suit me better,” said Mo Fan with a hint of menace.
Dean Xiao shook his head helplessly. He had already caused so many troubles when he was in the relatively deserted Summoning Element. The situation would be much worse if he were transferred into the Fire Element.
That being said, it was not a bad idea, either. Since Mo Fan was willing to train in the Fire Element, he would not mind fulfilling his wish, since it would not bring any harm to let him compete against the other students in the Fire Element.
“Fine, you should spend some time improving your cultivation. When the time comes, I’ll recommend you to the National Team. I’m looking forward to your outstanding performance in the upcoming World College Tournament.”
“World College Tournament… what the heck is that?” asked Mo Fan.
Dean Xiao raised his eyebrows, before speaking with an annoyed yet amused tone, “Are you sure you’re a student? How could you not know about the World College Tournament? The Enforcement Union at Lingyin, Hangzhou, strongly recommended you as a seeded candidate for the National Team. Didn’t you know that?”
Mo Fan dropped his jaw, before he recalled Miss Tangyue’s words prior to his departure, “I never said I wanted to participate in the tournament. It’s just a waste of my time and effort. If I won, the school would say they had done a great job at training me. If I lost, they would say that I’m not good enough.”
Dean Xiao rubbed his temple and said with a headache, “Do you have any idea how hard the renowned clans, Hunter Union, and Magic Associations have tried just to secure a spot? Yet you think it’s a waste of effort. The school will consider it, and once we all agree, there’s no escape for you.”
“This isn’t fair, our school has lots of talents. Why do you have to pick me?” said Mo Fan.
“You won’t have much time until the selection for the National Team takes place. The World College Tournament is also known as the Battle of Venice. You will know its origin eventually. Now, I’ll let the student affairs sort out your transfer… forget it, I’ll do it for you. Just check in at the Fire School,” said Dean Xiao.
“Oh, right, thanks, Dean Xiao.”
“Watch yourself, there are differences between different Element Schools. I can’t help you with everything,” advised Dean Xiao with a worried tone.
