Versatile Mage - Chapter 86
Chapter 86: Fight Between the Powers
“Brother, Yu Ang is still lying there!” Mu He called out to remind Mu Zhuoyun.
Mu Zhuoyun’s face immediately sank.
Shit, he had almost forgotten that today was the Coming-of-Age Ceremony for his son Yu Ang. His majestic and formal Coming-of-age Ceremony had turned into a day for this brat Mo Fan to cause a sensation in Bo City!
What was even more regretful was that they had lost this Magic Duel. This meant that Mu Zhuoyun would have to apologize to the father and son in the front of his distinguished guests!
Thinking about this point, Mu Zhuoyun felt something in his chest fiercely rumbling, and his blood pressure rose tremendously.
In the arena, Mo Fan didn’t even feel like looking at Yu Ang, who had turned into something like a dead dog after being bombarded by Lightning Strike.
_Background, you want to talk to me about background? I’ll use lightning to shock you into a dog that acts rich!_
As he turned away, Mo Fan began walking toward the stands.
The result couldn’t be more obvious, he had won.
Despite the shock that had caused everyone’s flesh to feel numb, Mo Fan was more concerned about that old scoundrel Mu Zhuoyun’s current expression.
As expected, the old scoundrel looked as though he wanted to spit blood, but was unable to do so.
“My dad has already given you his gift, old guy, why don’t you decide for yourself what to do,” Mo Fan coldly grunted as he walked in front of Mu Zhuoyun.
_Waiting for today! I have also been wanting for many years! Today, when people who have status from Bo City are here, I will make you, Mu Zhuoyun, experience how to lower your voice while you deal with that anger!_
Mu Zhuoyun’s old face began to twitch severely.
In reality, Mu Zhuoyun actually thought highly of Mo Fan. He was afraid that the kid would cause a reversal of fortune, and so he had specially prepared that Magic Armor for Yu Ang. However, Mu Zhuoyun did not even dream that Mo Fan had an innate Dual Element, and that he even had Lightning Strike cultivated to the third level!
This entire grandiose Coming-of-age Ceremony had thoroughly had become this kid’s ceremony for shocking the world. It was like making a wedding dress for someone else’s apprentice. This kind of feeling was like wearing a green hat, causing him to seethe with anger.
“That… Don’t worry, don’t worry. Master Mu Zhuoyun has always been looking after us, Mo Fan, just let this matter go.” Mo Jiaxing was after all a good and honest person. From how he saw it, Mu Zhuoyun kneeling down and apologizing was no different than having him killed. In any case, he was still an important character.
“Yeah, just forget about this matter. Tonight has caused all of us to expand our horizons,” Mu He hurriedly jumped in, his attitude was completely different from before. It was simply like someone with a merchant’s friendliness, it carried some good intentions.
_Just forget it?_
_Shit, if this old scoundrel Mu Zhuoyun had the intention of just forgetting it, then he, Mo Fan, wouldn’t have brought out Lightning to shock them!_
“Hmph, what does a kowtow apology amount to. I, Mu Zhuoyun, will do what I have promised. If you agree to a bet, then you must be prepared to lose!” Mu Zhuoyun fiercely spat out these words.
As these words were said, Mu Zhuoyun really stood in front of Mo Jiaxing.
The spoken words was quite bright, yet, Mu Zhuoyun’s actions were somewhat stiff.
He really needed to do a kowtow apology to the father and son?
After doing this, he, Mu Zhuoyun, would really be unable to raise his head in front of the people of Bo City.
_Bastard, freaking scoundrels! How could such a heaven-defying talent like the Innate Dual Element possibly be in this little scoundrel, Mo Fan’s body? No wonder why he was so confident when he agreed to this duel bet back then, it turns out he actually had such a trump card in his hands…_
The old fox, Mu Zhuoyun was similarly calculating, but he was unable to anticipate his opponent’s Innate Dual Element.
Struggling, Mu Zhuoyun clenched his teeth as his knees slowly bent.
“Old brother Mu Zhuoyun, you must not! Sigh, we don’t even have any deep animosity, there’s no need to be like this. Besides, what kind of century is this, there’s no need for something like this! Even people in the past were able to laugh and forget the old grudges. We could even count to have known each other for a long time.” Mo Jiaxing hurriedly supported Mu Zhuoyun back up.
Mu Zhuoyun looked back at Mo Jiaxing in shock.
In his perspective, most people would be enjoying themselves greatly at this time. It was not just anyone in this world who could enjoy Mu Zhuoyun’s kowtow apology, let alone Mo Jiaxing, who had also given him one before.
“Mo Fan, it’s all right now,” Mo Jiaxing turned around and told Mo Fan.
Mo Fan shrugged his shoulders. Even his father had spoken up, what else could he do?
Either way, Mu Zhuoyun did kneel just now, and it could be said that he also did kowtow. The grudges of many years could be said to have been drained out with the impetuous Lightning Strike.
“Well said, even people in the past were able to laugh and forget old grudges. Today should be a day worthy of celebration! Our Bo City has given birth to a shocking genius with Innate Dual Elements! Not too long ago, we thought that Mu Ningxue’s Ice-affinity Spirit would make the name of our Bo City famous. Who would’ve thought that Mo Fan’s Innate Dual Element is even more shocking! The heavens really are watching over our Bo City!” the prestigious Principal Zhu let out with a sigh.
Among the southern cities, Bo City couldn’t be counted as being particularly excellent, nor did it have many excellent Magicians appearing. Thus, it had been silent in the south for a long time.
However, Mu Ningxue’s Ice-affinity Spirit, as well as Mo Fan’s Innate Dual Element, could definitely cause a great sensation. It would allow Bo City to become the most-watched city in the south!
This matter excited people just thinking about it!
“Mo Fan, let’s just put it like this. As long as you join our Army, then you will definitely be able to become the chief of a city army in the future! Let’s not even talk about the large amount of cultivation resources, someday you will definitely be able to find success in this career!” Zhankong was first to jump out and make promises with a sincerity he never had before.
“Zhankong, that should be enough. Being able to choose which faction is an individual’s freedom. What is the meaning behind your forceful recruiting?” Yang Zuohe protested unhappily.
“Shit, how am I forcefully recruiting him. Mo Fan and I address each other as brothers. He is my sworn little brother!” Zhankong widened his eyes.
The two instructors, Luo Yuanbo and Pan Lijun, to the sides, began sweating.
_Boss Zhankong, when did Mo Fan become your sworn little brother?_
“Head Instructor, just what are you babbling about?” Mo Fan was speechless.
“Oh? You’re not content with that? How about you’re the older brother? You being my sworn older brother is also alright. Either way, join our Army and you’re guaranteed a high position and great wealth,” Zhankong immediately proclaimed.
Luo Yunbo and Pan Lijun had already begun sweating waterfalls.
_Shit, you, the grand Chief of Bo City’s Army, are recognizing an eighteen-year old kid as your sworn older brother, that’ll make all the army squads in Bo City collapse. Can’t you have some moral principles, Boss Zhankong?_
The two instructors really wanted to drag their Boss Zhankong away immediately, this was far too shameless!
