Chapter 1605: Intentionally making things difficult
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Ye Wanwan: “…” Oh wow, not bad, Eldest Young Master Shen! I didn’t expect him to do this well at Scarlet Flames Academy.
“Junior Sister Ye… Pretend I didn’t say anything. That b*stard, Zhang Zuonian, isn’t someone I can offend…” Li Xin hastily said to Ye Wanwan.
“Junior Sister Ye”—the young man stared at Ye Wanwan—”Anyway, you better be careful. Zhang Zuonian definitely isn’t someone to be trifled with. There was another newly enrolled D-rank mercenary who offended Zhang Zuonian and was intentionally targeted by an instructor. The instructor compulsively issued the new student a mission that a D-rank mercenary couldn’t possibly finish, and the new student died during their mission.”
“Okay, got it. Thank you for the warning.” Ye Wanwan smiled at the young man.
It had to be said that the majority of the people at Scarlet Flames Academy were quite decent. It was just a minority of people like Zhang Zuonian, Zhou Tao, and Zhou Fu who damaged Scarlet Flames Academy’s reputation.
Currently, in the instructors’ office:
Zhang Zuonian looked at the middle-aged man and asked with a light chuckle, “Uncle, you’re the one leading Ye Wanwan, right?”
The middle-aged man nodded. “Yes, there’s a student named Ye Wanwan. What about her?”
“Nothing. It’s just that I don’t really want to see this person anymore, so you should help me give her some special care when you’re issuing missions tomorrow, Uncle,” Zhang Zuonian said lightly.
“Oh… Was Ye Wanwan blind and offended you?” The middle-aged man looked pensive.
“Just so.” Zhang Zuonian laughed.
“Alright, I understand.” The middle-aged man nodded and agreed.
The next morning, inside the D-rank classroom:
Ye Wanwan looked at information laying on her desk about the basic rules and structure of Scarlet Flames Academy and its mercenary system.
Shortly after, an instructor entered the classroom.
Upon seeing that all the new students were present, the instructor announced, “We will be issuing the compulsory missions today.”
Many newly enrolled mercenaries secretly prayed for the instructor to not issue them a mission that was too difficult.
Typically speaking, mercenary academies required their students to finish several missions every month, and these missions were typically assigned by an instructor. Once the missions were assigned, the students couldn’t decline them and had to accept them, so they were called compulsory missions.
If students didn’t accept them, they would be expelled from Scarlet Flames Academy.
The instructor pulled out a stack of paper.
After learning about their assigned mission, many new students smiled. Their missions weren’t too difficult. There were also a few people who looked gloomy. Their compulsory missions looked a bit difficult.
“Ye Wanwan.” The instructor’s gaze landed on Ye Wanwan.
Ye Wanwan looked up.
“Ye Wanwan, several students went missing in the northern part of Yun City, so head there and scout for news. Immediately report back any clues you discover,” the instructor detachedly said while looking at her.
Several experienced D-rank mercenary students’ expressions shifted, and they reflexively turned to Ye Wanwan.
The place the instructor mentioned not only had large, ferocious beasts but also contained many notoriously savage and evil people listed as wanted by the Martial Arts Union.
Many defected mercenaries hid there too…
Strictly speaking about the mission the instructor assigned to Ye Wanwan, there weren’t any problems. But the location of the mission… was extremely problematic!
Even some high-ranked mercenaries wouldn’t dare to accept this mission, let alone a new student!
