The teacher in charge of the class and the advisor of the [Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Academy, Department 19, Class 43] didn’t know how to ridicule this whole situation.
Let’s talk about the older girl first. She was a Chinese citizen living abroad,surnamed Bai and named He 1 .
She had graduated from a world-famous university, and she had a PhD in three different subjects. As if that wasn’t enough, she had also published several theses that had deeply shocked the academic community.
Did her mother know that her daughter was this amazing?
Anyway, a PhD in three different subjects, coupled with those achievements in the academic community, was more than enough to hold a teaching post at Jiangnan University! If she had come here as a teacher, the Jiangnan University would have immediately welcomed her!
But Miss Bai He decided to transfer here as a student, and pointed out that she wanted to transfer to the Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Academy, Department 19, Class 43.
Was she making fun of them? Or had she read so many books that she had turned into an idiot?
They were completely unable to understand her train of thought! Perhaps this was the difference between ordinary people and geniuses?
In addition, the two teachers found this ‘Miss Bai He’ somewhat familiar. Right… an actress from that movie that was very popular as of late, ❮Apocalypse War❯, looked very similar to Miss Bai He!
Sure enough, this time around, True Monarch White Crane had come to China in its feminine form.
As for that other girl called ‘Shi’, she was ten years old this year, and she was admitted into the Jiangnan University after passing the entrance examination. She was without a doubt a child prodigy.
During the past years, child prodigies had frequently appeared in China, getting admitted into world-famous universities at a very young age. But why hadn’t this girl obediently started from the first year of the university, and instead decided to directly jump to the second year…?
And just like that Miss Bai He from before, this girl called Shi had also requested to be transferred to the Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Academy, Department 19, Class 43.
Was there some big boss hiding in Class 43…?
In the meantime.
Song Shuhang was seated in the familiar classroom of his university. He had casually sat in one corner, looking very satisfied.
The effects of Senior Drunken Moan’s protective talisman were truly something. After he got into the classroom, no one paid any attention to him. He was like the invisible man of the class; he was very happy with how things were proceeding.
At this time, he felt like a bystander quietly overlooking everything that was happening in the classroom.
Summer vacation was now over, and the various fellow daoists— ugh, classmates had gathered together to discuss their experiences. They gathered in groups of twos and threes, and started to chat happily.
The content of their conversations was rather diverse. They told each other where they had gone during summer vacation; they also discussed interesting games, and talked about amusing events or good movies that were screened lately. Of course, whenever the topic shifted to movies, they couldn’t help but mention ❮Apocalypse War❯ and talk about the various main characters and supporting characters. Ling Ye—the most handsome main character in history—and Senior Brother Gao Sheng—the evilest villain in history—obviously couldn’t be forgotten during this kind of conversation.
Still, even if they were talking about Senior Brother Gao Sheng, no one paid attention to Song Shuhang, who was seated in one corner. It felt as though the world had forgotten about his existence.
Song Shuhang’s rating of Senior Drunken Mown’s talisman was a perfect score of 5/7 2 .
Anyway, after hearing his classmates, Song Shuhang couldn’t help but recall his own summer vacation.
Racing with tractors, losing memories on the mysterious island, chancing upon a bunch of assassins and saving Chu Chu, battling on the Grievance Settling Platform.
The hand-guided tractor competition, the trip to space, the meeting with Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, the exploration of the ancient grave… chancing upon the Crystal-Clear Water Pavilion, and meeting Ye Si.
After that, he dragged the seniors of the Nine Provinces Number One Group to film ❮Apocalypse War❯, and halfway through the filming, they even participated in the great battle between the scholarly faction and the demons of the Netherworld Realm. Then, he visited the 250th branch and the pyramid in its underground area, and before the start of his university, he also secretly crossed swords with the ruler of the Netherworld, the ball of liquid metal.
Had so many things really happened during a single summer vacation?
Luckily, this eventful summer vacation was now over, and his ordinary life as a student could start again.
He wanted to thoroughly enjoy this hard-to-come-by peace and temporarily push the matters related to the world of cultivators aside.
Just as he was thinking this, Song Shuhang couldn’t help but quietly practice the ❮Thirty-Three Divine Beasts’ Technique❯… cultivation sure was addicting! Whenever a cultivator had free time, they would subconsciously start practicing and enjoy the wonderful feeling of having true qi travel through their meridians!
“Speaking of which, how come Shuhang hasn’t arrived yet? Didn’t he say that he completed his registration on the first day of the month?” The voice of Song Shuhang’s friend, Gao Moumou, echoed at this time.
Gao Moumou had dark circles under his eyes today. He hadn’t slept well for the past few days. Alongside ❮Apocalypse War❯ getting more and more popular, Gao Moumou was also getting more and more excited. After all, he was the one that had written the plot of the movie!
“Who knows…” Tubo hung up the phone, and sighed.
“Did someone invite you to participate in another play?” Yangde asked.
“Hmm… yes.” Tubo sighed faintly.
With Song Shuhang’s help, the three of them had also managed to play a small part in ❮Apocalypse War❯, showing their faces to the public.
After the movie became popular, Yangde and Gao Moumou weren’t affected too much, but Tubo would frequently receive calls and get invited to act into plays.
The reason was that everyone found Tubo’s face rather funny, thinking that he was very suitable to act in comedies.
Funny your brother-in-law! In addition, Tubo’s dream wasn’t to become an actor, but to open a car repairing shop or a car modifying factory.
“Is it possible that Shuhang is afraid of coming to university? After all, he played Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s character too well. Hehe,” Gao Moumou said with a smile.
Speaking of which, he felt that he had been too lucky. Originally, Senior Brother Gao Sheng was the tailor-made character that he had created for himself. Luckily, he managed to throw it at Song Shuhang in the end. Otherwise, the one that everyone wanted to drag into the streets and tear to pieces would have been him, Gao Moumou!
“Right, during those days when ❮Apocalypse War❯ was just screened, I had a nightmare every night. In the dream, I was the one that ended up playing Senior Brother Gao Sheng’s role, and people started to chase after me,” Gao Moumou said. “But in the second half of the dream, Senior Brother Gao Sheng would suddenly turn into Song Shuhang, and I would start chasing after him. It was rather funny.”
Just as the three roommates were discussing, a voice echoed in their ears. “I’m here.”
It was Song Shuhang’s voice.
The three roommates turned their heads around, and discovered that Song Shuhang was seated right beside them.
“F*ck, Shuhang, when did you arrive?” Tubo got a scare. Shuhang had randomly appeared there, just like a ghost!
“I’ve been sitting here since the beginning, even before you guys came over. I watched you as you entered the class and sat beside me, starting to gossip about me,” Song Shuhang said with a serious expression on his face.
“…” Gao Moumou.
Around 8 AM.
The advisor brought the two new students along, and pushed the door of the classroom open. While showing the way to the two new students, he also gave them a simple introduction to the courses of the university, and told them about a few things they had to keep in mind.
After entering the classroom, the advisor clapped his hands, hinting the students to quiet down.
“Summer vacation is over. Therefore, everyone should quickly return to reality and start studying. In addition, I’ll introduce two new classmates today.” The advisor of Class 43 wasn’t someone that liked wasting time with useless talk. He was a very direct man.
“On the left is student Bai He; she is a Chinese citizen that has returned from abroad. However, she already has… forget it. Everybody, be sure to get along with her well.” At first, the advisor thought about telling the other students that Miss Bai He had a PhD in three different subjects, but he later felt that it was something superfluous.
“Eeeeh?” Gao Moumou, Tubo, and Yangde looked at the new student, Bai He, with surprised expressions. Wasn’t this the same Miss Bai He that had shot the movie alongside them?
How come she had decided to transfer exactly to their class?
Right, she played the part of Song Shuhang’s lover in the movie… Was it possible that love had sparked among them during the filming? Was this the reason Miss Bai He had come to study here from abroad?
Thereupon, they turned their heads around, and looked at the nearby Song Shuhang.
Song Shuhang had a calm expression on his face. He was aware that True Monarch White Crane wanted to transfer over, and he had already mentally prepared himself. Since he knew this information beforehand, he wasn’t surprised.
However, when that other new student appeared, Song Shuhang was unable to stay calm.
The advisor introduced the second student. “This is the other new student. Her name is Shi, and her surname is Song. She’s still very young, and I’ll leave her in your care.”
All the students in the classroom were shocked. Although they had frequently seen or heard about child prodigies on the Internet, it was their first time seeing one in real life!
Song Shuhang was shocked. “Pfff~”
Why the hell had Shi transferred to his class? In addition, wasn’t her name just ‘Shi’? When did she become ‘Song Shi’?!
“Elder Brother Shuhang!” Shi happily waved at Song Shuhang.
All the people in the classroom immediately turned toward Song Shuhang.
As a result, Song Shuhang’s transparent status became useless.
“It’s Song Shuhang!”
“When did he get in the classroom?”
“Senior Brother Gao Sheng, Senior Brother Gao Sheng!”
“Shuhang, I want an autograph~ In addition, do you know Ling Ye? Can you give me his contact?”
“Wait a moment, aren’t you mixing things up? Senior Brother Gao Sheng must die!”
The classroom immediately fell into chaos.
Song Shuhang felt that he was done for.
In the end, a talisman was just a talisman, and it wouldn’t allow Song Shuhang to turn into Scholar Drunken Goon. While carrying this talisman, his presence was weakened, making him somewhat ‘transparent’.
However, he wasn’t truly invisible. If everyone’s attention was centralized on his body, the effect of the talisman would weaken a lot.
At this time, Miss Bai He swept the classroom with her beautiful eyes, slightly furrowing her brows afterward.
In the next moment, she arrived beside Song Shuhang with large strides, slamming her hands on Song Shuhang’s desk.
“True— Fellow Classmate Bai He, hello. Is something the matter?” Song Shuhang asked in puzzlement.
True Monarch White Crane clenched its teeth, and said, “Tell me! Where is Senior White? Where are you hiding him?”
Song Shuhang blinked his eyes, and replied, “Senior White is probably home playing video games.”
True Monarch White Crane lowered its voice, and said, “That’s impossible. I went to your place and took look before coming to university. Dammit, you are actually living together with Senior White!”
