The old man’s voice was incredibly loud, and felt like it was coming out of the phone and strangling Guan Yu.
Guan Yu stood blankly. He saw Mu Ningxue standing behind him as soon as the call ended. He was completely at a loss for a second.
“I…I…” Guan Yu never thought it would turn out like this. He had no idea how to face Mu Ningxue. He assumed he could settle her problem easily, yet it turned out like this.
“I only came to tell you that it’s a misunderstanding; I don’t need anyone’s help,” Mu Ningxue said calmly.
She did not want Guan Yu to misunderstand her. Besides, she was not interested in Guan Yu and his suggestion. However, her expression had turned slightly unpleasant after she heard the harsh words from the other end.
“Mu Ningxue, it’s not what you think, my gramp must have heard some rumors spreading around… trust me, I…I’m going to help you. Once I make a name for myself at Venice, I will prove that you’re innocent. But, for now, please bear with it, you can wait for me back in our country,” said Guan Yu.
“Don’t worry, I can handle it myself.”
“You can’t… the influence is bigger than you thought, unless you can actually draw the attention of the world,” said Guan Yu.
“Which is why I’m coming back; I will!” said Mu Ningxue sternly.
She was not saying it to Guan Yu, but to herself!
She did not want her little family to always carry a bad name, to be accused by the whole country. She did not want her people to live like despicable rats, forcing them to hide from the public for the rest of their lives…
Her surname would always be Mu, not because she had anything to do with the Mu Clan, but because it was her right to own it. There was no need, and no reason to change it!
She would prove it, and prove her innocence to the whole world!
That afternoon, a cold rain started pouring. The East Maritime Fortress was soon drenched in it.
The advisors were planning to leave in the evening after they were done briefing the team. The members gathered at the entrance to send the advisors off.
It was necessary for the team to be respectful. After all, the advisors were reputable Magicians in their country. Their experience and cultivation level would provide these young and inexperienced students with great help.
Mu Ningxue stood with the advisors. She did not bid farewell to the team. She was not particularly close to any of them.
“Wait, hold up!”
They were about to leave when Mo Fan’s voice came from behind.
“Mo Fan, what do you want?” Song He raised his eyebrows when he saw Mo Fan running toward them with a bag.
Mo Fan put the bag over his shoulder and said, “I’m going back, too,”
“Why are you going back? The team will be leaving in a few days; just stay here and behave yourself!” ordered Feng Li, immediately giving Mo Fan a death stare.
“Find another person to take my spot, I’m quitting,” said Mo Fan.
Everyone almost went crazy when Mo Fan said that.
-He is quitting!?
-Is that really something a sane person would say?-
Apart from Ai Jiangtu, whose strength completely outmatched everyone else, the others only managed to secure a spot because of the people supporting behind them. The chance was utterly precious, they were basically the hope of their people. Even the slightest urge to quit the team would be considered the most detestable offense, let alone actually asking to quit the team!
Mo Fan was definitely out of his mind, asking to quit the team!
-What kind of international joke was this!-
“Kid, I dare you to say it again!” Feng Li’s eyes widened. Even his mustache had curled upward.
“I’m quitting the team. By the way, there’s still a team of defenders, right? I’ll join the team with Mu Ningxue to have some fun,” said Mo Fan.
Feng Li almost exploded in rage.
Where the hell did this little asshole come from? Did he seriously treat the national team as his home, a place he could come and go as he wished!
He was forced into the team without getting permission from any advisor, and they had decided to let it go, yet the guy was demanding to quit the team without their permission. Where was his respect for the national team!?
“Mo Fan, I’m telling you; take your words back, and we’ll think of it as a joke! Otherwise, I will never see you again!” Feng Li’s chest heaved in anger. His face was flushing, too.
“Why are you being so worked up for? I didn’t say I’m not coming back. My thoughts are the same as Mu Ningxue’s. I’ll leave the team first, then come back later. You mentioned that if we perform well as defenders, there’s a chance for us to be promoted. It’s as easy as that,” said Mo Fan.
The group felt like their view of the world had been toppled after hearing Mo Fan’s ridiculous statement.
-Is he dumb or mentally retarded? Everyone in the team of defenders is extremely talented too, but their chance of being promoted to the national team is still dependent on whether anyone on the national team is disqualified!-
As a matter of fact, the members of the national team would have access to lots of resources. Even if two people started with comparable strength, but one was on the national team while the other was only a defender, they would gradually find the difference in their strength growing apart.
“Mo Fan, stop playing with fire, this isn’t a joke! Go apologize to the advisors, and they will let you go!” Zhao Manyan had the urge to kneel down before Mo Fan and beg him.
-Oh Mo Fan, just stay on the team. Once you come back gloriously from the World College Tournament, you can marry whoever you want. Besides, Mu Ningxue has nowhere to run to, apart from staying in our country. Even if she’s married and has kids, with your status by then, you can easily win her back! This is seriously not something to joke with!-
“I’ve already packed my stuff. Guys, until next time! Nanyu, Jiang Shaoxu, I’m going to miss you,” Mo Fan was utterly clueless as usual. He walked over to Dean Song He and placed his hand over the man’s shoulder as if he was extremely close to him.
Song He was left speechless. If he wasn’t told by his superiors to treat the kid nicely, he simply had the urge to whip him.
Song He had no choice but to be the good guy. He immediately advised Feng Li, “Feng Li, calm down, let’s…”
“Why would I be angry? I should be happy now that someone is willing to quit the team voluntarily. The national team doesn’t need people who lack resolution, not to mention that he joined the team through unofficial methods. Piss off, get out of my sight, I feel annoyed the more I see you, be gone!” cursed Feng Li.
“Advisor Feng Li, why would I do that, I’m going back on the same flight with you. Can you get me a ticket, and unfreeze my identity, too?” said Mo Fan.
Feng Li’s eyes were about to spit fire, but he quickly calmed his rage and ordered the plump advisor beside him, “Take this idiot with us!”
