“Alright, let’s leave. I still have something to say.” Zheng Yuanlin waved his hand and went offline.

Chu Nan raised his head to look at Dong Fang in the audience and saw the kid waving his fist at him excitedly.

He smiled and also chose to log off.

The three of them returned to their dormitory from the virtual network space. Zheng Yuanlin picked up the cup of tea on the table that had already turned cold and took a sip. He lowered his head and pondered for a moment before revealing a sincere smile to Chu Nan, “Little Brother Chu, do you know why I came to find you this time?”

Since he had already made up his mind, the way he addressed Chu Nan became closer.

Chu Nan’s heart stirred as he guessed something, but he still shook his head, “I don’t know.”

Zheng Yuanlin chuckled and put down his teacup before continuing, “I’ll be straightforward. I’m here on Teacher’s orders.” Speaking up to this point, Zheng Yuanlin deliberately paused.

“Supremacy Mu Yutong’s order?” Dong Fang tactfully widened his eyes and spoke.

Although Chu Nan was not as agitated as Dong Fang, his eyes still lit up as he looked at Zheng Yuanlin without blinking.

Zheng Yuanlin was very satisfied with their reaction. He nodded lightly. After a pause, he suddenly let out a long sigh.

Chu Nan and Dong Fang looked at each other in confusion.

Why was Senior Zheng suddenly sighing?

“Little Brother Chu, do you know that if you had appeared in front of me ten years ago, I might have called you junior brother now?”

Chu Nan and Dong Fang were stunned.

“Senior Zheng, what do you mean by that?” Dong Fang immediately asked without holding back.

Zheng Yuanlin glanced at the frowning Chu Nan and slowly shook his head.

“If we met ten years ago, with Little Brother Chu’s astonishing martial arts talent, Teacher would definitely be tempted and take him in. After nurturing him, he would definitely be able to become a true expert in the future. Unfortunately…”

“What’s a pity?” Dong Fang scratched his head in confusion. “Senior Zheng, do you mean that the Supremacy can’t take Chu Nan as his disciple now? I remember that the Supremacy mentioned before coming to West Cloud Planet that he wanted to take in a new disciple.”

“He does have the intention to take in a new disciple, but…” Zheng Yuanlin turned to look at Chu Nan, “Little Brother Chu, how old are you this year?”

Chu Nan was stunned before he replied, “I’ll be 18 in two months.”

Zheng Yuanlin nodded but did not say anything else. He only lowered his head and sipped his tea.

Dong Fang immediately turned anxious.

He originally thought that it was a great thing for the Eldest Disciple of Supremacy Mu Yutong to come looking for him personally. However, he did not expect Zheng Yuanlin to put on such a show. It was really confusing.

Just as he was about to speak, Chu Nan patted his shoulder and stopped him.

“Senior Zheng, if I’m not wrong, you mean that I’m already old, so Supremacy Mu Yutong won’t take me in as his disciple?”

Zheng Yuanlin raised his head again and smiled.

“True experts need to be nurtured from a young age and build a good foundation. Little Brother Zheng, forgive me for being blunt, but you’ve already missed the best opportunity. Otherwise, with your talent, you should at least be a high-level Internal Breath Martial Artist now.”

Chu Nan was silent.

Dong Fang frowned and said in slight anger, “Who set the rule that experts must be nurtured from a young age? Not to mention the entire Milky Way, there are also many experts who became famous after growing up in our Earth’s federation, right? I even remember that 200 years ago, there was a martial artist who was only at the Void Break Realm until he was 60 years old, but he broke through to become a Star-Grade Martial Artist at the age of 70. They can, but can’t Chu Nan?”

Zheng Yuanlin smiled. “Little Brother Chu, you have a very good friend.”

Chu Nan smiled bitterly and stopped Dong Fang who wanted to speak again.

“Senior Zheng, I understand what you mean. But since Supremacy Mu Yutong doesn’t plan to take me as his disciple, why did you come to find me?”

Zheng Yuanlin was very satisfied with Chu Nan’s reaction.

At first, this kid was clearly just like this student called Dong Fang who was beside him and had extremely high expectations for his sudden arrival. However, he did not expect that he would expose the cruel reality later on.

Under such a huge psychological difference, he immediately calmed down.

In order to become a truly powerful martial artist, talent was important, but character was also important.

If one was always anxious and lost their calm when encountering anything, how could they maintain their calm when facing true powerful enemies and dangerous situations?

“Although Teacher feels that you are already old and not suitable to be taken in as a disciple, he saw your performance twice and thinks that your martial arts talent is really rare. If you continue to stay in this small West Cloud Academy, it will be too wasteful.”

Chu Nan and Dong Fang were both surprised.

From what Zheng Yuanlin said, could it be that…

“Little Brother Chu, what do you know about Star Cloud Academy?”

“Star Cloud Academy?” Chu Nan and Dong Fang looked at each other. A thought flashed through their minds and they replied, “I don’t know much, but I heard that it’s called the number one comprehensive academy in the federation. Its military branch is also known as the cradle of the federation’s officers?”

“That’s not wrong. However, to you, there’s another more important thing. The Star Cloud Academy’s martial arts branch has the best and most abundant external cultivation methods in the federation. Among them, there’s also the only S-rank external cultivation method taught to outsiders by the federation—Arhat Overlord Golden Body. If you have the chance to learn this cultivation method, your future will be limitless.”

“Then, you mean to say that… Chu Nan will have the chance to learn this Arhat Overlord Golden Body?” Dong Fang could not wait to ask.

“I can’t guarantee that.” Zheng Yuanlin shook his head. “However, if you want to learn this cultivation method, you must first have the chance to come into contact with it. Little Brother Chu, are you willing to enter Star Cloud Academy to study?”

Chu Nan was stunned, “Is it that easy to enter Star Cloud Academy?”

“To ordinary people, it’s naturally not easy to enter. However, if you have Teacher’s special recommendation, it’s much easier to enter,” Zheng Yuanlin replied with a smile.

Their eyes lit up.

“Senior Zheng, could it be that the Supremacy intends to give Chu Nan a special recommendation?” Dong Fang asked.

Zheng Yuanlin smiled and nodded.

“I’m a person who cherishes talent. Seeing that Little Brother Chu’s talent is rare, he wants to give you a chance. However…”

At this point, Zheng Yuanlin paused and his expression became serious.

“Teacher’s special recommendation can’t be given casually. Although Little Brother Chu’s previous performance was not bad and made Teacher acknowledge your talent, this is still not enough.”

Chu Nan immediately understood Zheng Yuanlin’s intention and asked, “What do I need to do?”

“In a few days, it will be the martial arts competition of West Cloud Planet. As long as you can continue to perform well in the martial arts competition and obtain his true approval, there is a high chance that Teacher will give you a special recommendation. Do you understand what I mean?”

Chu Nan smiled, “Senior Zheng, can winning my category’s championship count as outstanding?”

Zheng Yuanlin was stunned before laughing loudly.

“Alright! Since Little Brother Chu is so confident, I look forward to your performance in the martial arts competition.”

After saying that, Zheng Yuanlin stood up and bade farewell to the two of them.

After Zheng Yuanlin left, Dong Fang looked at Chu Nan worriedly.

Although Zheng Yuanlin did not say it very bluntly just now, his meaning was very clear.

Although Mu Yutong felt that Chu Nan’s talent was not bad, he clearly felt that he was too old and it would be very difficult to nurture him into an especially powerful expert in the future. Therefore, he was unwilling to take him in as a disciple.

This verdict from a powerful Star-Grade Martial Artist meant that it would be almost impossible for Chu Nan to grow into a true expert.

To a martial artist, this was simply a death sentence.

However, there was not much disappointment on Chu Nan’s face. He looked at Dong Fang’s worried gaze and smiled.

“What am I doing? I’ve said it before. Even if I become a disciple of a Star-Grade Martial Artist, it might not be a good thing. Moreover, I’m already very lucky to be able to obtain the chance to enter Star Cloud Academy, right?”

Dong Fang shook his head and treated Chu Nan’s words as consolation.

How could Chu Nan not see through Dong Fang’s thoughts? However, he could not be bothered to explain and only looked in the direction Zheng Yuanlin left in and clenched his fists.

He naturally understood what Zheng Yuanlin meant by those words, but he did not agree.

So what if he was a Star-Grade Martial Artist?

He felt that Chu Nan could not do it, but was that necessarily true?

With his powerful data ability, Chu Nan believed that as long as he had enough time and hard work, he would definitely walk his own path in the future and become a true expert that far exceeded Mu Yutong’s expectations!
