Chapter 281 More Farming To Do
This time, altogether 252 people made it out of the Fiery Mountain, while 53 died. Han Fei had personally caused and witnessed the death of about ten of them.
In other places that he didn’t see, the competition between the trial takers seemed equally fierce.
After Wu Junwei said that, barely any of the contestants moved. They all focused their eyes on Li Hanyi’s team and Han Fei’s team. With an awful look on his face, Li Hanyi waved his hand, and 89 Fiery Mountain Tokens floated, which was rather impressive, because there were only 305 Fiery Mountain Tokens in total.
However, most people did not know that Han Fei set Li Hanyi up in the chain test, or the number would’ve been higher.
Luo Xiaobai said, “Han Fei.”
Full of disdain, Han Fei waved his hand and mumbled, “Don’t think that you’re the only one who can wave your hand.”
After the tremendous amount of Fiery Mountain Tokens flew out, the students of the three academies were all shocked. They whispered to each other. “Huh? You were robbed by them?”
“Don’t talk as if you weren’t.”
Most people were speechless, as the Fiery Mountain Tokens that they acquired through hard work ended up in Han Fei’s hands.
Someone sighed. “Forget it. Another team would’ve done the same even without Han Fei’s team. We couldn’t win anyway.”
Plus the Fiery Mountain Tokens Han Fei earned in the end by staring at the students, he gathered 151, which was about half of the total.
At this point, Kong Yunfei presented 27 Fiery Mountain Tokens, which attracted a lot of attention. He deserved to be sixth in the ranks to have obtained so many Fiery Mountain Tokens single handedly. He had even become stronger after the trial.
The rest of the students offered 18 Fiery Mountain Tokens in total, which was quite embarrassing for the presidents of the three academies.
Xu Tianji snorted and didn’t ask where the last twenty Fiery Mountain Tokens were. Some of them must’ve been completely lost in the Fiery Mountain with the death of certain students.
Xiao Zhan extended his hand and shot the 151 Fiery Mountain Tokens at the decks of the other three presidents’ boats. old Bai finally said, “Do you need more evidence? I told you that the Thug Academy is coming back. All five candidates of our academy have been selected.”
Han Fei immediately looked at Old Bai. Selected? What exactly is the deal that you made? Is this not a simple trial?
Xiao Zhan said in a low voice, “Don’t ask. You’ll know when you’re supposed to know
Han Fei whispered to everybody telepathically, I feel that we’re caught in an enormous scheme…
Hardly had he finished when his head was patted heavily, and Old Bai looked back at him. “Scheme? We only did it for your sake.”
Han Fei was shocked. “You can hear our telepathic whisper?”
Everybody else was shocked too. Would they have any secrets at all in the future?
Xiao Zhan patted Han Fei’s head and said, “Your spiritual power is better than others. You can hear it too.”
Han Fei: “???”
Han Fei said awfully, “Can you stop patting my head?”
The presidents of the three academies hesitated. Eventually, Wu Junwei said, “Bai Congye, we can give you a few spots if you insist. However, let me remind you again that it’s not worth it. The Thug Academy is not really the same as us.”
Old Bai smiled in disdain, “The Thug Academy is not scared of trouble now that we’re out.”
Then, Old Bai looked at his students and said, “Let’s go back.”
On the boat, Han Fei’s team was still confused. They had no idea what the spots that Old Bai and Wu Junwei were referring to. So, the purpose of their trial in the Fiery Mountain was to get these spots?
When they passed the plantation on the way to the school, the gangsters of The Fish Dragons were tending to it. Everything seemed in order.
Observing it for a while, Old Bai said, “Everybody will digest your harvest in the trial in the next month after we come back. Then, you can all go farming!”
Han Fei immediately trembled. He knew too well how painful farming was! He never mentioned the plantation outside of the campus exactly because he did not want to do farming.
But why was Old Bai asking them to farm?
Han Fei immediately rolled his eyes. “Mr. President, I don’t think one month is enough for my digestion!” “Oh, is that so?” Han Fei nodded quickly.
Old Bai said lazily, “That’s fine. You can continue your digestion while you farm.”
Han Fei: “….”
A moment later, Old Bai returned to his library and went back to sleep.
Looking at the students who were murmuring to each other, Xiao Zhan said, “Han Fei, since you had experience in tending to plantations, try to work harder later.”
Le Renkuang asked, “Sir, why did the president ask us to farm?”
Xiao Zhan smiled. “Every student of the Thug Academy has to spend some time in farming. It’s known as Heart Nurturing.”
Everybody was confused. What was Heart Nurturing? They didn’t want to nurture their hearts!
Xiao Zhan smiled. “Just go! Everybody has been through this. In the future, you’ll know why you had to farm.”
Everybody looked awful. Laying his hand on Han Fei’s shoulder, Zhang Xuanyu asked, “How does farming feel?” Han Fei grinned weirdly. “You’ll be able to answer your own question in a few days.”
When they were back to the campus, they saw that Qu Jinnan and Ling Yuan were trotting to the gate.
Both of them were stunned to see Han Fei, who had turned slimmer and balder.
Han Fei said gloomily, “What are you looking at? Close your eyes.”
The two of them: “…”
His teammates’ lips curled into a weird smile, and they almost burst into laughter.
Han Fei stared at them. “Go. Just go now, Iron-Head Fish…”
Qu Jinnan pretended that he didn’t see anything. He said, “Senior brothers and sisters, you’re back?”
Han Fei was briefly stunned, not used to being called a senior brother. So, he nodded solemnly and asked, “Yes. How’s your body training going?” Qu Jinnan’s face was slightly pale. “Well… Senior brother, I’ve only reached the 96th movement.”
Han Fei was lost for words. The exercise that could’ve taken three days at most had taken this guy more than ten days? His body was truly lousy!
Ling Yuan said, “Greetings, senior brothers and sisters.”
Luo Xiaobai said, “Let’s go. I’m going to test you.”
Luo Xiaobai had taken her away before she said anything else. Han Fei mumbled, “Well, Xiaobai is the best, except that she can be too careful.”
Xia Xiaochan glanced at Han Fei. “You think everybody is the same as you? I’m leaving for training too.” Zhang Xuanyu also left. He even specifically patted Qu Jinnan’s shoulder when he passed by. “Keep it up.”
Le Renkuang looked at Han Fei. “Do you want to have hotpot first before we start training?”
Han Fei replied, “I’m too lazy to cook anything. You can make your own hotpot if you want to eat…”
Then, Han Fei looked at Qu Jinnan and said, “Keep practicing. When you can’t stop yourself from advancing to new levels, come to me.”
Qu Jinnan nodded hard. For some reason, he felt that his senior brothers and sisters were different now.
Han Fei found a random cave and sat inside. There were too many things he needed to absorb. First, he took out Sun Ye’s Sea Swallowing Seashell.
But before he had the time to examine it, he sensed danger. He raised his head, only to see that Xia Xiaochan was looking at him with pain on her face. Xia Xiaochan said with a quivering voice, “It’s going to attack. Let’s go to the mountain.”
Han Fei’s face immediately changed. He recalled the Sea Swallowing Seashell and rushed to the mountaintop with Xia Xiaochan.
On the mountaintop, half an hour later…
Han Fei was leaning against a rock, panting. His clothes had been reduced to strips. He cast the Divine Healing Technique on himself nonstop, healing the thirty or so wounds.
Sitting on the rock, Xia Xiaochan looked at Han Fei apologetically.
Han Fei heaved a long sigh. “Why… Why did you have an attack all of a sudden?”
Xia Xiaochan shook her head. “I don’t know, but I guess it’s related to the fish fire. Something has always been wrong after I absorbed the fish fire.”
Han Fei frowned. “The fish fire? Didn’t it help you advance to a peak-level great fishing master?”
Xia Xiaochan held her knees pitifully. “I don’t know. Although I made a breakthrough, the fish fire still lingers in me, and when I tried to consolidate my cultivation just now, it had a conflict with the power in my body.”
