Feng Wu chuckled . “That’s because Xiaoqi only started cultivating less than a month ago . ”
The boy had gone from scratch to Level 4 in less than a month?!
Grand Secretary Fang was astonished!
It would take any regular person at least a dozen years to reach Feng Xiaoqi’s level from scratch . Those with some talent, such as Feng Liu, also had to cultivate for years before they reached Level 5 .
But Feng Xiaoqi had been able to achieve it in a month!
“You’re kidding me, right?!” Grand Secretary Fang stared at Feng Wu .
Feng Wu smiled at Grand Secretary Fang . “I’m not . Xiaoqi didn’t start cultivating until a month ago . ”
Grand Secretary Fang shook his head with a wry smile . The Feng clan had to be blessed . Talented youngsters just seemed to fall on their doorstep!
“Well, if you don’t find Xiaoqi good enough…” Feng Wu made a gesture to leave with Feng Xiaoqi .
“Hey! Hey!” Grand Secretary Fang panicked and stopped her . “Wait . Don’t go . ”
Feng Wu looked over her shoulder at Grand Secretary Fang, but the old man only reached out and took Feng Xiaoqi’s hand .
“You can go now . Leave the kid here,” Grand Secretary Fang said decisively .
What a wonderful pupil . He wouldn’t be able to find many young men more talented than this one .
It wasn’t every day that he could find such an ideal pupil, and Grand Secretary Fang was determined that he wouldn’t let this one slip through his fingers .
However, Feng Xiaoqi threw Grand Secretary Fang’s hand off and hid behind Feng Wu .
Feng Wu chuckled .
Grand Secretary Fang’s eyes widened!
He had just become one of the top five cultivators in the empire!
“Feng Xiaoqi, I’ve agreed to take you in as a pupil . Shouldn’t you be on your knees and formally acknowledging me as your master now?” With his hands behind his back, Grand Secretary Fang raised his chin .
Feng Xiaoqi, however, tugged at Feng Wu’s sleeve and gave her a pleading look .
Feng Wu rubbed his head . “Xiaoqi, don’t you want a master?”
“Sister, can’t you teach me yourself?” Feng Xiaoqi sounded disappointed .
“I certainly want to, but I don’t have the time… Grand Secretary Fang is your best option now, in terms of his cultivation and his connections . ”
Grand Secretary Fang rolled his eyes at Feng Wu .
That was… direct . The girl had said those words right in front of him .
She was probably one of the few people who dared talk to him like that .
Feng Xiaoqi asked, “Sister, do you think I need a master?”
Feng Wu smiled . “If you don’t want to, there’s no harm in hanging around Grand Secretary Fang and learning from him . ”
Feng Xiaoqi said, “Yes!”
Grand Secretary Fang stared at Feng Xiaoqi and Feng Wu in astonishment .
Feng Wu said apologetically, “Xiaoqi doesn’t want a master yet . In that case, I’m afraid you’ll have to bear with him . ”
Grand Secretary Fang didn’t even want to talk to Feng Wu now, if it wasn’t for her mysterious connection with that master, who was very likely Mu Jiuzhou .
Feng Xiaoqi was too talented a boy to be left to other people . The last thing Grand Secretary Fang wanted was to see someone else become the boy’s teacher .
With Xiaoqi figured out, Feng Wu’s mind was at ease . However, she arrived home to find Qiuling eyeing her eagerly .
Feng Wu then recalled what she had told Qiuling about her cultivation .
She looked into Qiuling’s eyes . “You’ve made up your mind?”
Qiuling knelt down and prostrated herself at Feng Wu’s feet .
