Chapter 2528 Authority
Feng Wu nodded.
Chief Zixuan turned to Zuo Qingluan. “To make up for your injured dignity, the points she needs to earn is doubled; we’ll call it even, then. You still have two more chances to pick a disciple.”
Two more chances? Zuo Qingluan smiled a little and asked Feng Wu again, “Will you be my disciple?”
Everyone was surprised.
Feng Wu again?
“Does she know what will happen when Feng Wu says no for a second time?”
Chief Zixuan hesitated. “Qingluan…”
Zuo Qingluan asked, “Am I not allowed to pick the same person?”
Chief Zixuan said, “You can, but…”
She looked at Feng Wu.
Feng Wu said, “No.”
She sounded like she wasn’t bothered at all.
Gongsun Mu stepped out and reminded her, “Feng Wu, if you refuse her again, the points you need to graduate will be five times more than other students.”
Doubling the points would already make it impossible for her to graduate. What about five times?
The other students all stared at Feng Wu.
They believed that she would change her mind.
But Feng Wu only looked at Zuo Qingluan without saying another word.
She had made up her mind.
Gongsun Mu couldn’t help but remind Feng Wu, “You can’t possibly earn so many points.”
Feng Wu shook her head. “Thank you for your reminder, but I don’t care.”
Gongsun Mu shook his head. “Do you know what will happen if you can’t graduate?”
Feng Wu asked curiously, “What will happen?”
Gongsun Mu smiled bitterly. “You’re a student of the War Academy now, so you have the right to know a few things. If you can’t graduate, you’ll have to join the battle at Peace Grassland.”
Feng Wu had guessed as much. “Are you referring to the war with the Dongsang Kingdom?”
Gongsun Mu said, “That’s right.” It was getting even fiercer, and the empire was losing ground. Of course, Gongsun Mu omitted the last part.
Feng Wu said, “I’m alright with that.”
Gongsun Mu shook his head. Before he could say anything else, Chief Zixuan said, “So be it. Qingluan, you still have one more chance.”
All eyes were on Zuo Qingluan. Who would she choose now?
Surely, not Feng Wu again.
That was outrageous, because if Feng Wu said no a third time…
But Zuo Qingluan turned to Feng Wu again.
“I’ve been playing by the book all my life, but I want to do something willful today. Feng Wu, will you be my disciple?”
That was the third time she asked Feng Wu.
Zuo Qingluan did it!
At first, the students had hoped that being someone of their own age, Zuo Qingluan would be easy to get along with, but after the three questions, she had proven that she wasn’t!
She was using Feng Wu to assert her authority!
Poor Feng Wu.
