Chapter 200 Astonishment and Entrance
To think that the Divine level expert, the Holy Orison, had already decided on the candidate for his disciple! Who was it? Who could it be?
The next moment, regardless if it was the Shadow Death God Anderson, David who was holding onto Lilia, or even Hamil, Rota, Ralph, Edger, or the other people, each person’s breath turned heavier.
Although they knew that the chances that it would be them were low, humans were creatures who loved to indulge in illusions. Otherwise, items such as lotteries would not exist.
Although the chances were extremely low, everyone could not help but feel great anticipation, hoping for Yuelun to say their name.
A Knight asked, trembling, “I wonder who is the person the Guardian King wishes to take in as his disciple?”
Yuelun smiled, replying, “Kirst Royal Academy’s Fang Xingjian.”
Kirst Royal Academy’s Fang Xingjian. Each of these words were like individual explosions, stuffed into Edger’s brain. He shivered, as if he could not believe that the other party had actually said that name.
He shouted, “What did he say? What did Master Yuelun say?”
Rota was the only one who stayed calm, but the expression she was wearing was still very complicated. She sighed and said, “Fang Xingjian, it’s Fang Xingjian. The Guardian King wants to take Fang Xingjian as his last direct disciple.”
Hamil and Ralph also wore extremely complicated expressions. There was disappointment, admiration, but more than anything, there was pure jealousy. In no way could they not be jealous. How lucky and how honorable was it to be taken in by a Divine level expert as a disciple? How bright would his future become? Even a Conferred Knight would be filled with feelings of admiration and jealousy, let alone them!
David, who had been holding onto Lilia, was also stumped. ‘Fang Xingjian? That blind guy Fang Xingjian? Why is it him?’
A hint of ice-cold killing intent appeared in David’s eyes. A maniacal jealousy started burning in his heart.
In the back, the Shadow Death God Anderson also frowned as he started to wonder what kind of person was Fang Xingjian.
Hoult, who had been surrounded by countless young ladies as well as aristocratic ladies, being the Divine level expert Astral Ancestor’s grand disciple, knew well what a Divine level expert represented.
For example, the way he, a third generation disciple, did not have to do anything and people would send endless supplies of resources, secret manuals, assets, and gold.
‘Fang Xingjian? That person who transitioned into a Windstorm Sword Hero?’ Hoult smiled with great ease, ‘I wonder what kind of person he is.’
After all, it was impossible for him to be taken in by the Holy Orison as his disciple. Thus, there was no need for him to adopt a hostile attitude toward Fang Xingjian.
Butler Setques fell into a stun, “Fang Xingjian… Fang Xingjian?”
He immediately regained his senses. Didn’t the guard who had earlier reported to him mention that there was someone by the name of Fang Xingjian waiting outside?
“Oh no!” He immediately dashed out in the direction of the main entrance.
Valen and Fang Xingjian were still waiting at the main entrance. The few young ladies there were already planning to leave. They looked at Valen and said, “Hey, aren’t you guys leaving as well? You’re still going to foolishly wait here?”
“Hahahaha, there won’t be any latecomers for the Hundred Blossom Banquet. You guys can just go back earlier. There’s no use waiting.”
As the few young ladies were taking their leave while teasing Valen and Fang Xingjian, Butler Setques, together with a few guards behind him, anxiously ran out.
The moment he came out, he looked in Fang Xingjian’s and fatty Valen’s direction.
Fatty Valen smiled and stepped forth, saying, “Butler Setques, long time no see. Do you still remember me? I’m the Valen from the Regional Selection Office, I previously came to meet the Governor…”
However, Setques was unable to react to Valen’s words at all. With a slight movement, creating a series of afterimages, he had passed by Valen and went right up to Fang Xingjian, displaying Knight-level abilities.
He looked at Fang Xingjian and said with great enthusiasm, “Are you Young Master Fang Xingjian? Kirst Royal Academy’s Fang Xingjian?”
Fang Xingjian replied, “I am Fang Xingjian.”
Setques immediately broke into smiles and enthusiastically grabbed Fang Xingjian’s hand, pulling him toward the manor and said, “Haha, this is excellent. Please come with me. Everyone’s talking about you.”
Valen was stopped, but he shouted loudly, “Hey, hey, hey! What about me?”
Fang Xingjian turned back and lifted his chin slightly in Valen’s direction, saying, “He’s with me.”
Setques snapped his fingers and fatty Valen was allowed entry as well.
The young ladies who were standing in a row outside the entrance stared at this scene with wide eyes and mouths agape. Although they had not managed to enter the upper society echelon in Great Western City, they were well aware about the many things regarding aristocrats.
The short-haired young lady who had been the first to tease Fang Xingjian and Valen said, “That person earlier is Butler Setques, right?” The three main stewards in the Governor’s residence were all Knights who were not only very strong, but at the same time powerful representatives of the Governor himself.
Another young lady gulped and said, “Last time, I saw the Secretariat from the Ministry of Finance being very respectful before him, but Steward Setques was still a bit cold. What on earth was that earlier?”
“What else could it be? That guy, did you guys hear his name? Heck, he must be some important character, a very important character. Otherwise, why would Steward Setques personally come out to receive him? Did you guys see the smile on that Steward Setques’ face earlier?”
“Fang Xingjian, that guy is called Fang Xingjian. I heard it clearly,” another young lady said anxiously. “Oh no! We were still teasing them earlier… He wouldn’t possibly bear a grudge, would he?”
Thinking of these, the few coquettish b*tches felt terrified.
Valen followed behind Setques, looking at the white jade flooring, looking at the up to a thousand lamp posts in the area as well as the variety of luxurious decors. He was astonished.
This time around, for the Hundred Blossom Banquet, the manor looked even more luxurious and beautiful than the last time he had seen it.
However, Fang Xingjian did not show much of a reaction. After all, although the individual’s martial arts cultivation was very strong in the Miracle World, in the area of construction, accessories and energy sources, it was centuries back compared to the Earth’s, where any of the main cities would be much prettier than this place.
So how could Fang Xingjian possibly feel overwhelmed?
As they were walking, two people suddenly dashed out from the bushes. A green-haired aristocrat and a young lady who looked like a model walked out, their clothes all messed up, still busily straightening them out. They had obviously been having fun in the bushes.
“How did you come in?!”
They were surprised seeing Fang Xingjian first thing when they came out. They were about to shout when they saw Setques next to Fang Xingjian.
Setques frowned and said, “Young Master Gable, please be aware of your identity.” He was from the Governor’s wife, Ms Hathaway’s family, and although he was not pleased with his actions he could not be overly reproachful.
The green-haired young man scratched his head awkwardly, obviously a bit frightened of this steward. However, he immediately pointed to Fang Xingjian and said, “Steward Setques, why did you bring this guy in? He’s just someone trying to sneak into the Hundred Blossom Banquet.” Earlier on, he had been looking at Fang Xingjian in disdain. How could he have expected to meet him again here, and to even be caught in an awkward situation!
Setques frowned and solemnly replied, “Young Master Gable, please do not spout rubbish. Young Master Fang Xingjian is Master’s honorable guest, the person Master Yuelun is looking for.”
With that, he continued to lead the way for Fang Xingjian with great enthusiasm.
When Valen passed by, he intentionally threw a disdainful look at the green-haired young man.
Seeing the three of them leaving, the green-haired young man was stuck in a stupor, not understanding what had just happened.
“This cannot do, I must go and see who on earth this guy is. If he snuck in through trickery, I’ll make sure he dies.”
