Chapter 46 - Meeting an Acquaintance
As everyone was giving their congratulations to Ling Feilong, the person, himself, had his eyes swept over to a corner of the room, the corner where s.h.i.+ Feng sat. His eyes held a hint of dissatisfaction when he looked at s.h.i.+ Feng.
He was the pride of the cla.s.s and, even more so, a future celebrity. Yet, an inferior student like s.h.i.+ Feng actually did not intend to flatter him?
After a round of flattery, Ling Feilong allowed the students to return to their seats.
“I thank everyone for your support. Please quiet down for a moment. I am here today because I have a matter that I wish to discuss,” Ling Feilong said.
Hearing Ling Feilong’s announcement, everyone listened attentively. Only s.h.i.+ Feng remained uninterested towards Ling Feilong's matter.
However, s.h.i.+ Feng could not help but pay attention after hearing Ling Feilong speak.
“It's something related to the school’s recommendation.” Ling Feilong calmly said, “Everyone knows how I am obsessed with fighting. However, my grades at school aren't that good, so it has caused some problems with my recommendation. So, I wish for someone here to give up a spot. The school has already agreed to this; so I am here to discuss this matter with everyone else.”
“Brother Long, this is only a trivial matter. It is only a recommendation. As the pride of the cla.s.s, as long as Brother Long requests it, there will definitely be someone in the cla.s.s willing to give up their spot,” a bootlicking male student said.
Although everyone in the cla.s.s agreed to this person's words, there was n.o.body who willingly stood up to give away their recommendation.
In the end, finding a job was just too hard. The recommendation was much more valued than a person's educational background when working inside a big company. If they were to give up their recommendation, what would they do in the future?
As for the ones who had no rights to the recommendation, to begin with, naturally, it was easier to be brave standing from a safe distance. They continuously incited the others like hot-blooded mad-men.
Ling Feilong's expression slightly darkened when he saw n.o.body taking initiative.
“Since everyone is reacting so proactively, it won’t be good if I’m the one who does the choosing. How about this, let’s raise our hands and vote,” Ling Feilong suggested with a smile.
“That’s a good idea! Brother Feilong is the smartest!”
“Then let’s start voting!”
The hot-blooded mad-men all stood up one after another, their faces holding expressions of delight, delight at the misfortune of others.
s.h.i.+ Feng, who sat by the wall, was suddenly enlightened after looking at this scene.
c.r.a.p! So it was these b.a.s.t.a.r.ds who stole my recommendation!
A wrathful flame ignited within s.h.i.+ Feng’s heart. He was truly a fool in his previous life for actually working with Ling Feilong. Not in this life, however. If Ling Feilong wished to cause trouble for him in this life, he couldn’t be blamed for reacting in kind.
Maybe it was a continuation of his previous life, but the voting results did not change in the slightest. The students immediately sat s.h.i.+ Feng on the ‘throne.'
“Fellow student s.h.i.+ Feng, you are really lucky! I’m slightly envious of you!”
“You’ll get to have Brother Long cover for you from now on; you should be grateful to us.”
Everyone in the cla.s.s started congratulating s.h.i.+ Feng as if s.h.i.+ Feng had just won a five million Credit lottery.
“Fellow student, s.h.i.+ Feng, thank you, truly. After school is over today, I invite you to come with me for a drink at the Maple Leaf Bar,” Ling Feilong smiled a hypocritical smile. He did not place s.h.i.+ Feng within his sights at all. There was not a hint of grat.i.tude in his tone, only disdain. Following which, he turned to look at the other students, saying, “Of course, everyone else is also invited. Let us enjoy ourselves today.”
“Hold on a moment,” s.h.i.+ Feng suddenly said.
Suddenly, everyone in the cla.s.s turned their sights towards s.h.i.+ Feng. If s.h.i.+ Feng did not actively speak up, they might have long since forgotten about his existence.
“May I know if fellow student s.h.i.+ Feng has something he wishes to say?” Ling Feilong looked towards s.h.i.+ Feng, asking with a smile.
“I will not agree with this;, so why are you getting all joyous all on your own?” s.h.i.+ Feng shot a glance at Ling Feilong, saying, “If any of you wish to give him your recommendation, then just give it to him. In any case, I won’t be letting go of my recommendation. If there are no other matters, I’ll be leaving.”
Suddenly, the entire cla.s.sroom became dead silent. n.o.body could imagine that s.h.i.+ Feng, a person constantly bullied by students of other cla.s.ses, actually rebelled against Ling Feilong. His current display was very abnormal. Was s.h.i.+ Feng not afraid of being taken out by Ling Feilong?
Ling Feilong, as well, was shocked, not because of s.h.i.+ Feng’s actions, however, but at s.h.i.+ Feng’s foolishness.
Did he actually think he could protect his recommendation just because he had refused to hand it over?
This was a result voted by the entire cla.s.s. It would be meaningless, even if s.h.i.+ Feng refused. When the time came, the university would still give him the recommendation. Even though the result was unchangeable, s.h.i.+ Feng still foolishly chose to stand against him.
Should s.h.i.+ Feng be called foolish? Or did he have a few screws loose?
Just when Ling Feilong wanted to take action, an impatient voice sounded from outside the door.
“Little Long, are you still not done? Brother Zhang doesn’t like to be kept waiting.”
A tall blond youth came in through the door. Following behind him was an alluring girl dressed in s.e.xy and revealing clothing. The two together caused the male students to look on in envy.
s.h.i.+ Feng shot a glance over, discovering that it was actually an ‘acquaintance.’
The tall and blond youth was coincidentally Flaming Tiger. His real name was Zhou Yuhu, and he was a fourth-year university student, similar to s.h.i.+ Feng. This person had great talent, and he managed to obtain a good result of third place in the university’s fighting tournament this time around. Meanwhile, the enchanting female by Zhou Yuhu’s side was also an acquaintance of s.h.i.+ Feng’s. Her name was Qin Shuyu, and she was s.h.i.+ Feng’s cla.s.smate during high school; she was also the flower of the cla.s.s at the time.
s.h.i.+ Feng was truly blind during those times. Young and dumb, he was actually enchanted by Qin Shuyu, even to the point of confessing his love to her. Naturally, the result was rejection. After entering university, Qin Shuyu had become Zhou Yuhu’s girlfriend. Qin Shuyu even mentioned to Zhou Yuhu the matter of s.h.i.+ Feng’s confession. As a result, s.h.i.+ Feng was often ‘taken care of’ by students from other cla.s.ses. After s.h.i.+ Feng joined Shadow, he was often sent to carry out senseless tasks, stunting his growth in G.o.d’s Domain.
“Brother Hu, why have you come here? I’ll immediately go after I’m done settling my business here.” When Ling Feilong saw the person who had arrived, he respectfully went up to welcome him with a smiling face.
“How much longer do you need? I don’t have that much time to waste” Zhou Yuhu wrinkled his brows, impatiently saying. He was parted from his duties as Team Leader today all because of that Ye Feng character, and he had only recently risen to Level 2. Afterward, he was even given a scolding by Brother Zhang. These occurrences caused him to become greatly irritated deep within his heart.
“Two to three minutes should be enough.” Ling Feilong replied. He felt teaching s.h.i.+ Feng the ways to be a proper person should not be a big problem.
“Good, then hurry up,” Zhou Yuhu demanded.
Currently, Qin Shuyu’s eyes unintentionally landed on s.h.i.+ Feng; her expression was suddenly turning sour. She had no good impressions of s.h.i.+ Feng. He had neither money nor power. There was not the slightest feeling of safety or strength coming from him. When compared with Zhou Yuhu, the difference between the two was hundreds and thousands of miles apart. s.h.i.+ Feng even confessed to her without knowing his own worth. It was just an insult to her person, and as a result, she was often made fun of by the other girls.
Seeing the disgust on Qin Shuyu’s face, Zhou Yuhu hooked up her chin with his robust hand, teasingly saying, “Baby, I’ll take care of him for you immediately, lest he shows up in front of you again.”
Qin Shuyu faintly smiled as she nodded, not having any intention of stopping Zhou Yuhu.
“Hey brat, come over here,” Zhou Yuhu pointed his finger at s.h.i.+ Feng, loudly roaring.
Everyone was shocked at seeing Zhou Yuhu’s imposing manner. Who was Zhou Yuhu? He was ranked third in the school’s fighting tournament. He was much more powerful when compared to the ninth-ranked Ling Feilong. A single hit from him was enough to send a person to the hospital for half a month.
Ling Feilong naturally understood what was happening before him; Zhou Yuhu was irritated by s.h.i.+ Feng and wished to take care of him. Originally, he too wanted to teach s.h.i.+ Feng a lesson and let the entire cla.s.s know of his prowess. If he were to take care of s.h.i.+ Feng right now, not only would he be helping himself, but he would also be able to sell a favor to Zhou Yuhu; he would be killing two birds with one stone. Hence, Ling Feilong stepped forward and volunteered, “Brother Hu, no need for you to personally take action. Originally, I already wanted to teach this kid a lesson. Give me thirty seconds.”
“Little Long, so the matter you had to deal with before was this.” Zhou Yuhu looked towards s.h.i.+ Feng in disdain. He licked his lips, saying with a cold smile, “Better to let me. I also wish to loosen my bones a little.”
Saying this, Zhou Yuhu walked towards s.h.i.+ Feng with a cold smile.
