A moment later, Ye Wanwan and Elder Liu arrived at the registration spot for Scarlet Flames Academy.
“What’s your name?” an elderly man asked Ye Wanwan.
Ye Wanwan thought for a moment and replied, “Ye Wanwan…”
“And you?” The elderly man turned to Elder Liu.
“Liu Decheng,” Elder Liu answered with a smile.
“She’s your granddaughter?” The elderly man was surprised.
“Yes, yes, yes, she’s my granddaughter.” Elder Liu nodded.
“Your name is Liu Decheng and her name is Ye Wanwan, but she’s your granddaughter?” The elderly man frowned.
“Eh… this child’s father died when she was young, and her mother remarried, so her surname changed to Ye like her mother’s…” Elder Liu lied without blinking an eye.
“Alright.” The elderly man had no choice but to accept this explanation.
“Ye Wanwan, since you were personally recommended by Emperor Ji, you don’t need to participate in the examination. You will be a new student of Scarlet Flames Academy and a D-ranked mercenary. This is your uniform and mercenary ID.” The elderly man handed the items to Ye Wanwan.
“Thank you.” Ye Wanwan smiled. It had to be said that Ji Xiuran’s reputation was rather useful.
“Have the instructor lead you to your dorm room. Also, we’ve registered your family now, so your grandfather can leave,” the elderly man instructed.
After sending Elder Liu off, Ye Wanwan followed the Scarlet Flames instructor to her dorm room.
“Haha, Ye Wanwan, what’s your relationship with Emperor Ji?” the Scarlet Flames instructor asked on their way there.
“We’re friends,” Ye Wanwan answered.
“En… If you have time, help me do some referrals. I have a few good trades on my hand that Emperor Ji might be interested in. You know how us low-ranked instructors have a low income,” the instructor said with a chuckle.
“En, I’ll definitely refer you when I have a chance next time, instructor.”
As they conversed, they passed by the mansion quarters.
“Aren’t these living conditions too good…?” Ye Wanwan was surprised. Did all Scarlet Flames Academy’s students live in mansions?
“That’s right. We’re one of the three great mercenary academies, after all,” the instructor replied.
“Um, which mansion do I live in then?” Ye Wanwan was inexplicably expectant.
“Your… your ranking isn’t high enough yet. These are all for mercenary students at A rank or above,” the instructor said with a smile.
“…” I got happy for nothing.
Soon, the instructor led Ye Wanwan to the dormitory quarters.
They entered a shabby room with a simple and crude interior and 10-20 beds.
“Pick whichever bed you want…” the instructor said.
“Us new students live here?” Ye Wanwan was shocked. She freaking wanted to live in the mansion quarters! Even if her rank wasn’t high enough, couldn’t she at least have a single room?!
“Not new students. It’s the D-rank mercenaries who all live in this type of dormitory. Your dormitory is quite decent already; at least you have an electric fan.”
Ye Wanwan had no choice but to randomly choose a bed and place her luggage on it.
“Wait… Why are there men’s shoes here?!” Ye Wanwan shouted.
“Oh, that’s normal. Bunkhouses are all mixed-gender living,” the instructor answered matter-of-factly.
“Mixed-gender living… Isn’t this too unsafe and inconvenient…?” Ye Wanwan frowned deeply.
The instructor examined Ye Wanwan for a moment before chuckling. “Actually… You’re rather safe… What I mean is that all mercenary academies are like this. Absolutely no accidents will happen. Your missions in the future will be more arduous; this is nothing. You should get used to it.”
