Ye Wanwan nodded. She had no choice but to leave the mission post for now.
Ye Wanwan followed the instructor to a hall.
There was an elderly man in brocade robes standing inside the hall.
“Elder Gong, this is Ye Wanwan…” the instructor introduced her to the elderly man with a smile.
The elderly man, Elder Gong, aloofly surveyed Ye Wanwan and nodded.
“You’re the one recommended by Emperor Ji, Ji Xiuran,” Elder Gong stated.
“Yes…” Ye Wanwan nodded and answered honestly.
“I have a friendship with Ji Xiuran. Since you were personally recommended by Ji Xiuran, I’ll accept you as a disciple in-name,” Elder Gong said indifferently.
“Haha, Elder Gong is one of the four elders at Scarlet Flames Academy, Ye Wanwan. The fact that you can become Elder Gong’s disciple in-name, it’s really…” the instructor marveled.
Ye Wanwan: “…” What’s going on…?
Disciple in-name? But I didn’t say I wanted to become his disciple!
Why did I randomly get accepted as someone’s disciple?
Ye Wanwan naturally knew the implications of being a disciple in-name. It wasn’t official and was solely in name.
“I hope you can train hard from now on and won’t disgrace me.” Elder Gong sighed and waved his hand, instructing the Scarlet Flames instructor to escort Ye Wanwan out.
Ye Wanwan remained baffled after leaving the hall.
“Ye Wanwan, you should be thankful that you were recommended by Emperor Ji and that Elder Gong was friends with Emperor Ji some years ago… You just entered Scarlet Flames Academy but are able to place your name under Elder Gong already. This is truly rare… Some of Elder Gong personal disciples are mercenaries at S-rank or higher,” the instructor quietly said to Ye Wanwan.
Ye Wanwan: “…”
I didn’t want to become his disciple… I didn’t do anything…
“However, Elder Gong is an aloof and proud person. Although he’s one of the four elders, his personal disciples have always been suppressed by another elder’s disciples,” the instructor added.
“That’s a pity.” Ye Wanwan nodded. An elderly man at his age and status mostly focused his energy on his personal disciples, so he definitely wouldn’t feel good that his disciples were being suppressed by another person’s disciples. But… what did this have to do with her?
“Elder Gong once had a disciple who was a famous character and once created many records at Scarlet Flames Academy, but… they disappeared afterward… Elder Gong has been searching for his missing disciple all these years but still hasn’t found them…” The instructor sighed.
“Who is that awesome?” Ye Wanwan was curious.
“Why are you asking so many questions? You just enrolled; you’ll definitely find out later on!” the instructor said.
After some walking, Ye Wanwan and the Scarlet Flames Academy instructor entered a classroom in the corner of the academy.
This classroom was the D-rank mercenary class and the place for D-rank mercenaries to learn basic mercenary knowledge.
“You’ll be in this class from now on. I need to inform you though—you might’ve been recommended by Emperor Ji, but you still have to abide by the rules at Scarlet Flames Academy. Don’t cause trouble, especially since you’re a new student, or else even Emperor Ji and Elder Gong can’t save you,” the instructor warned before leaving without looking back.
Ye Wanwan stared after him for a moment before looking away and ambling into the D-rank mercenary classroom.
As soon as Ye Wanwan entered the classroom, she discovered more than 100 people inside who were all sitting in their own seats and a middle-aged person on the podium, who was probably this class’ instructor.
