Chapter 525 The Arrogant Taekwondo Club
“Yes, master!” Zhou Tao replied respectfully.
He was convinced this time. In terms of cultivation, it was not shameful to for him to call someone master if the person was a supreme power grandmaster.
Lei Bao nodded, then he turned to Qin Haodong and said, “Master, you’ve come to Shanghai. Let me buy you a drink so that I can show my sincerity and do my part as a host. It’s also an apology for my disciple’s lack of discipline.”
“OK, let’s have a drink.”
Qin Haodong was not disgusted by Lei Bao’s straightforward character, so he agreed directly.
They left Gentleman Mountain together, and half an hour later, they appeared in a Chuanwei Hotel.
Zhou Tao had been quite attentive while Qin Haodong and Lei Bao sat down; his expression was full of respect.
Soon, all the dishes and wine were served. After a few drinks, Qin Haodong looked at Zhou Tao and said, “Lei Bao, is Zhou Tao your pro-disciple? Why is his cultivation so bad?”
Hearing this, Zhou Tao felt ashamed and said, “It has nothing to do with my master. I am not talented.”
Normally, a disciple of a supreme power master would have already reached the level of internal force by then, but Zhou Tao was only at the eighth level of Overt Power, which was really unreasonable.
Lei Bao said, “He is indeed my pro-disciple, but in terms of aptitude, he is ordinary and is not suitable for practicing martial arts.
“However, this boy has been obsessed with martial arts since he was a child. His father and I are friends, so I barely accepted him as my disciple. He hasn’t achieved much, even though he has studied for more than ten years. Now he can be regarded as the pro-disciple with the lowest cultivation in my martial arts club.”
After a pause, he said, “Zhou Tao is of good quality. He is steady, not impetuous, and loyal to friends. He’s not arrogant, although he comes from a noble family. That’s why I came here today to support him, although I didn’t expect to meet you.”
Qin Haodong nodded and said to Zhou Tao, “You’re from the Zhou family. What’s your relationship with Zhou Xinzhu?”
Zhou Tao replied, “Grandmaster, Zhou Xinzhu is my sister.”
“Oh, you don’t have to call me grandmaster anymore. It sounds awkward.”
After all, he had been Zhou Xinzhu’s boyfriend in name and the relationship between them was also good. If her younger brother called Qin Haodong master, he would taking advantage of him.
Lei Bao, “How could he do that? Courtesy is very important for people who practice martial arts.”
Qin Haodong said, “Forget it, his sister and I are friends. It’s a bit messy to call me this way. You can call me boss in the future. I’ll take it as courtesy.”
The word “Boss” could be both formal and informal. It could be regarded as respect. Then Lei Bao agreed.
“Got it, boss.”
Zhou Tao agreed. Although he was mediocre in practicing martial arts, he was very smart. He immediately realized that the relationship between Qin Haodong and Zhou Xinzhu was not ordinary. He said with a smile, “Boss, are you pursuing my sister?”
“Nonsense, your sister and I are just ordinary friends. Don’t talk nonsense.”
“Boss, if you want to pursue my sister, I can raise both hands to agree; and I can also help you.”
Zhou Tao extremely idolized Qin Haodong at this point, and he had his own thoughts. Having a master at the Supreme Power realm as a brother-in-law would definitely be something to brag about.
Qin Haodong was speechless. There was someone who would take the initiative to be his brother-in-law.
Lei Bao stared at him and said, “The more you speak, the more ridiculous it is. Be polite.”
Soon, they switched the topic. However, the atmosphere had become much more relaxed after this.
Qin Haodong wanted to learn about the strength of the three families from Lei Bao, so he asked, “How do you stand in Shanghai with your cultivation?”
Lei Bao said, “Since you helped me break through the bottleneck of supreme power, I can now be considered a top master.”
Qin Haodong said, “What about the three big families? There should be a lot of experts hidden in their families, right?”
Lei Bao replied, “There are naturally a lot of masters among the aristocratic families, but the masters at the supreme power realm are also very rare.
“Among the three most prominent families, the Sun family is the strongest in martial arts. It has three supreme power masters and there is someone at the second grade of supreme power. On the other hand, the Zhou family and the Zheng family only have two supreme power masters.
“Of course, this is about the superficial strength. I’m not sure about the specific situation of each family.”
Zhou Tao said, “Our Zhou family does have two supreme power masters, but both of them are very aggressive. They only listen to my grandfather’s orders and they still don’t agree to teach me.”
Clearly, this fellow was not satisfied with his family’s masters.
Lei Bao scolded him, “How can you blame others? Any one of the supreme power masters is an expert from a certain area. They would be very careful when the time came to choose disciples. How can you blame others?
“If you had a tenth of my master’s talent, I’m afraid people would be knocking on your door nonstop to take you in as a disciple.”
Zhou Tao curled his lips and said helplessly, “Can you blame me? I can only blame my dad for not giving me such a talent.”
The meal was ended on a happy note. Then Lei Bao took Zhou Tao away, and Qin Haodong returned home.
Once he returned home, he saw the girls sitting in the living room and watching TV as usual. Seeing him come back, Nalan Wushuang asked, “How’s everything going?”
Qi Waner also asked, “How is that guy’s master? Is he powerful?”
Qin Haodong said, “It’s nothing. The matter has been completely solved. His master happens to be an acquaintance of mine. Zhou Tao will never approach you again.”
Qi Waner smiled and said, “That is to say, no one will pursue Sister Wushuang in the future. It’s boring.”
Nalan Wushuang glared at her. “You’re a bad girl. Is it interesting to have dozens of people chasing you every day?”
They went to school as usual on the following day. After taking their seats, Zhi Fubao immediately came over and said, “Boss, big news, big news.”
“What happened?” Qin Haodong asked.
“There’s a new change on the campus’s most handsome boys’ list. After you defeated Zhou Tao yesterday, you became the third and Zhou Tao became the fourth one.”
“Uh… You told me this early in the morning? Is this also a piece of big news?”
“Of course, isn’t that serious?” Zhi Fubao took a large pile of letters from behind him with a sudden and mysterious move. “Look, boss, this is all because of your charm.”
Qin Haodong asked in surprise, “What is this?”
“Love letters!” Zhi Fubao said excitedly, “Since you ranked third, you’re even more popular than the top two. Since yesterday, many girls have sent love letters to our dormitory. Me and Tian Boguang have watched them all night. I’m really envious.”
He said as he handed the letter to Qin Haodong, “Boss, take a look. There are a lot of girls who are willing to marry you.”
Qin Haodong waved his hand and said, “Throw them into the trash can.”
The four girls in the class had made him very anxious, and he was in no mood to see love letters from other girls.
“It’s true that the boss is the boss. You are so calm. You don’t have a trace of regret after throwing those letters. When will I become as cool as you?”
At this time, Tian Boguang also came over and said, “Just do as he asked and throw them away. There’s no need to talk so much nonsense. Boss has too many top school beauties to chase after, so he doesn’t have the time to care about those commonplace women.”
“Go, go… go to class, all of you.”
Qin Haodong waved his hand and drove away the two coquettish guys.
The morning course was over, and soon it was time for lunch.
Several people walked out of the classroom together. Zhi Fubao said as he walked, “Boss, I’ll bet five yuan. Today’s lunch will not be peaceful, and there will be some ignorant guys who will jump out to pursue the campus belles of our class.”
Tian Boguang said, “I agree. I don’t know how many animals are drooling around our class.”
Zhi Fubao said, “But all their actions are useless when the boss is around.”
Qin Haodong said, “That’s enough. Shut up, you two. Don’t you think it’s troublesome enough?”
He was really a bit annoyed after those two days of suffering. Those people were not able to make any waves, but they were always very troublesome, so he was hoping to have a quiet lunch that day.
But things went contrary to his wishes. At the same time and at the same place, a lot of people had gathered on the way to the canteen.
Zhi Fubao sighed with emotion. “Boss. It seems that you have to face this trouble even if you don’t want to.”
Tian Boguang said, “Beauties are dangerous. Boss, you’re the only one who can conquer the four campus belles. Masters are seldom lonely. You’re destined to be troubled in this life.”
Although they were talking nonsense, Qin Haodong knew that trouble had indeed come, and it was bigger than before.
Not far in front of them, four young men stood there, wearing snow-white taekwondo clothes and holding a long banner in their hands. The names of Nalan Wushuang, Qi Waner, Li Meiyu and Su Hui were all written on the banner.
Under the banner, a young man, who was the leader, said to the crowd, “Everyone, my name is Jin Yingquan. I’m an international student from Koryo. I’m also the president of the Taekwondo club of our Shanghai Medical College.
“The three men beside me are the vice president An Qixuan, Piao Zaixiang, and Li Shangen. They are all the same as me, so outstanding people would naturally like outstanding girls.
“Today I have to announce to everyone that the four girls, the four female students of the Chinese medicine class, will belong to our Taekwondo club from now on, and none of you are allowed to pursue them.
“There is an old saying in Huaxia called ‘the bad result should be told before you act’. Now I have officially informed everyone. If anyone goes after them again, don’t blame us for being rude.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Zhi Fubao started to curse angrily, “These guys are really good-for-nothings. How dare they be so arrogant in Huaxia!”
Tian Boguang said, “They are used to being proud and arrogant. Who do they think they are? Why do they say that our female classmates belong to them?”
Dai Hongbing, who had been silent all the time, also spoke. “These guys are really annoying. They even tried to rob the reputation of historically famous people from Huaxia. They say that Qu Yuan, Li Shizhen and Confucius belong to them. Now they even want to rob those who are alive. Are they crazy?”
Li Meiyu immediately added, “They are really annoying. Even I have no choice; I won’t even look at them.”
Their side was extremely indignant, and so were the rest of the students.
“Why? Arrogant dolts, get the hell out of here…”
“Get out! I don’t welcome you in Shanghai Medical College. Hurry up and get back to Koryo…”
“What right do you have to do this? You’re so shameless…”
Jin Yingquan seemed to have been prepared for this result. He smiled disdainfully, then he raised his voice to say, “I know you are not convinced, but it’s reasonable because I have the strongest fist.
“After school today, our Taekwondo club is open to everyone. You can challenge us if you’re not convinced. As long as you can defeat our Taekwondo club, then what I just said will naturally be bulls**t. If you can’t, then you’d better get out of the way!”
