Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Ping looked at Huang Xiaoqi in front of him and narrowed his eyes.
‘This woman wants to drink milk tea? What the f*ck?’ Lu Ping mocked her in his heart.
But at the moment, he had a favor to ask of her.
If he were to retort, crazy Huang would definitely turn hostile.
Huang Xiaoqi looked at Lu Ping with a smile.
“You sign it first. I’ll buy it for you later.”Lu Ping rolled his eyes and agreed.
Huang Xiaoqi didn’t doubt him and immediately signed her name.
Lu Ping took the form and left the room.
He complained in his heart, “What a weirdo!”
Lu Ping took the form and left the room. Soon, he came to the logistics department again.
Just as he was about to enter the room, he suddenly heard Supervisor Jiang’s voice from inside.
“Mr. Chen, thank you. This time Cao Yu can get good results, I’ll definitely treat you to a meal!”
Lu Ping narrowed his eyes.
He remembered. Cao Yu was Supervisor Jiang’s son.
After watching Cao Yu and Meng Fan’s match, Chen Mu had said that he was indeed Supervisor Jiang’s son.
Lu Ping gently knocked on the door.
A cold female voice came from inside, “Come in!”
Lu Ping pushed the door open and entered.
He realized that there was no one else in the room except for her cell phone that was still lit up on the table.
Obviously, the two of them were chatting on their cell phones.
Lu Ping remained calm and placed the list in front of Supervisor Jiang.
At this moment, a message came through the phone.
Supervisor Jiang did not avoid Lu Ping. She held the list in one hand and read it while she opened the voice message with the other hand.
As expected, Chen Mu’s voice came from the other side.
“Supervisor Jiang, you’re too nice. This is nothing. That stupid kid in our class only used more strength in his attacks. When it comes to fighting in the arena, he’s no match for Cao Yu. The sword technique I taught Cao Yu this time is something he learned early on. Cao Yu is a smart kid. If he practices for a while more, his chances of winning are very high!”
Supervisor Jiang put down the list and ignored Lu Ping, holding her phone, she replied with a smile, “Mr. Chen, what are you talking about? This is a huge favor. If Cao Yu can win the championship, I will definitely thank you.”
Everyone could hear the joy in her voice.
Lu Ping sneered in his heart. The reward for the champion was a bottle of Qi refinement stage grade A cultivation fluid.
The price of this thing was not cheap.
After replying to this sentence, Supervisor Jiang put away the smile on her face and said calmly, “Lu Ping, right? Sign your name and go to the storeroom to collect it. Next time, just sign it directly.”
It was obvious that she was in a good mood.
Lu Ping laughed.
If this was a simple-minded person, he might have really been fooled by her.
However, he didn’t fall out with her. Instead, he asked with a smile, “Supervisor Jiang, I heard that your son is going to participate in the school competition. He will definitely win the championship this time, right?”
At the mention of her son, Supervisor Jiang laughed, her eyes were full of pride. “That’s right. That kid is quite good. He just won the first place in his class and was recommended to participate in the school competition. I just had a few words with his swordsmanship teacher.”
Lu Ping asked in a low voice, “I just heard that Mr. Chen gave private guidance. Is that okay?”
Supervisor Jiang was in a good mood. Seeing that Lu Ping was also on the right track, she said nonchalantly, “What’s the matter? There’s no rule that we can’t give private guidance. We’re all colleagues, so what’s the point of hiding things. You brat, learn from him. This is what it means to know how to do things.”
“Yes, yes, yes!” Lu Ping replied with a smile, but a hint of helplessness flashed in his eyes.
His phone had already been recorded in his pocket. He was still thinking of finding an opportunity to report Supervisor Jiang.
However, according to what she said, there was indeed no problem. It would probably be futile to report her.
Lu Ping no longer talked nonsense with her. He only took the things and left the logistics department with a smile.
Those who were cunning would rise and the innocent would fall!
Lu Ping did not go back directly. Instead, he went to the Mr. Wei’s office.
After knocking on the door and entering, the two of them took their seats.
Wei Minghua smiled and asked, “Why are you looking for me?”
Lu Ping said, “It’s like this. I see that the academy is preparing for the grand swordsmanship competition. I also want to recommend a student.”
He had to find Wei Minghua to explain the matter first. Otherwise, if he were to cram at the last minute and the other party refused to let him go no matter what, wouldn’t it be all a waste?
Wei Minghua was stunned. He frowned and said, “Mr. Lu, you teach new students, right? I’m afraid it’s not suitable for them to participate in the grand swordsmanship competition now.”
He misunderstood. He thought that Lu Ping was going to recommend his own class’s students.
Lu Ping smiled and explained, “I’m not recommending my own class’s students. I met a child who seemed to be quite talented, but he was eliminated by his class. I think it’s a pity and I want to teach him for a period of time to try.”
Wei Minghua didn’t say anything. Instead, he pondered slightly.
Lu Ping continued, “I think that kid is like a gem. If he can be polished properly, he’ll definitely become a great talent! I really can’t bear to see him overlooked!”
Wei Minghua was stunned. Lu Ping’s words were quite interesting.
“Which class is he from?”
“Third grade, Class 55, Meng Fan!” Lu Ping said honestly.
Wei Minghua laughed. “I know that kid, but he’s the kid with the best results in his class’ swordsmanship exam. Although he’s not considered outstanding in the entire school year, he’s not exactly overlooked, right?”
Lu Ping said softly, “But he can’t even participate in the competition, how is he not overlooked?”
Wei Minghua narrowed his eyes.
Lu Ping continued, “Mr. Wei, I’ve looked at the rules of the competition. Every swordsmanship teacher can recommend one person, but it didn’t say that they had to be a third grade teacher, nor did it say that they had to be a student in their own class. So I should have the qualifications to recommend him, right?”
After pondering for a moment, Wei Minghua said, “Since you put it that way, I’ll allow you to recommend him.” Wei Minghua agreed. He looked at Lu Ping and said, “Alright, you can go back first.”
Lu Ping received a satisfactory answer and stood up to leave.
Wei Minghua thought for a moment, then took out his phone and called Chen Mu.
“Bring Meng Fan from your class to my office.”
Not long after, the two arrived.
Wei Minghua looked at Meng Fan seriously and smiled. “Kid, show me your basic swordsmanship!”
Meng Fan quickly took out his wooden sword and began to use it.
Wei Minghua frowned slightly.
Something was wrong! Although this kid’s foundation was decent, he was definitely not an unpolished gem. No matter how he looked at it, he was at a normal level.
After Meng Fan finished practicing, Wei Minghua smiled. “His swordsmanship is not bad, his foundation is pretty good. Let’s go back!”
At this time, Chen Mu sensed that something was wrong.
After Meng Fan left, he leaned forward and asked in a low voice, “Sir, what’s wrong with this child? Is there a problem?”
