The fact that Zhang Shaofeng managed to gain a disciple out of his duel became what he boasted about for the following days—so much so that Chen Xinyi got frustrated from it. In the end, the girl bought a roll of tape and sealed Zhang Shaofeng’s mouth directly, forcing the latter to shut up.
A week passed by in the blink of an eye.
The duel that happened in the weekend’s evening remained a lasting impression in everyone’s memory but while the students crowed about how Zhang Shaofeng had beaten Zhang Jian, they had to mention Yun Jian as well.
Yun Jian was a multitasking student, frequently going back and forth between her school, home, New Cruise, and Falcon Hall.
As for Si Yi, he was usually away from Longmen City for at least two to three days other than weekends. He took the weekdays to go back to An Hun Group but he would be back swiftly.
School was dismissed punctually on Friday afternoon. Since Zhang Shaofeng had insisted on coming to school when he still had a fever and cold previously, his condition got more severe over the next few days. Eventually, he took a sick leave to go home when he was finally unable to withstand it, thus he was not there this Friday.
Zhang Jian actually did bow down to Zhang Shaofeng as his master. Although he was not as diligent as when Zhang Shaofeng had taken Yun Jian as his master, he was not far from it. Nonetheless, the very fundamental reason Zhang Jian had gone under Zhang Shaofeng as a disciple was because he was unable to go under Yun Jian and Zhang Shaofeng was now better than him—in addition, the latter learned his skills from Yun Jian.
This meant that, even if Yun Jian refused to take him as her disciple, he could also learn what Yun Jian taught through Zhang Shaofeng at the very least!
“Jianjian, pack up quick so we can go home. Five days of studying is exhausting! I need to relax properly once I get home!” Chen Xinyi stretched before she spoke up.
Once school was dismissed on Friday, everyone in class had fled out of the classroom in a flash. Some of the boys, especially, scrambled off faster than anyone else during Friday’s dismissal.
“Done,” Yun Jian told Chen Xinyi after she picked up her bag and slung the strap on a single shoulder.
“Let’s go!” Chen Xinyi went over to hook arms with Yun Jian and pulled her out toward the school gate.
Both of them would usually walk the same path together for some distance before they part ways after exiting the school gate.
Just as they walked out of the campus this time, someone familiar came up to them. This person had a digital camera hung in front of the chest and went straight to Yun Jian once he spotted her.
“Miss Yun Jian, hello!” Zhao Zhengmin who had recruited Yun Jian into the show business not too long ago made his appearance before her once more.
Seeing Zhao Zhengmin again, Yun Jian pressed her lips together, planning to tug Chen Xinyi along and left straight away from the side.
“Jianjian, he’s calling for you? Do you know him?” Chen Xinyi took a skeptical glance at Zhao Zhengmin.
A talent scout like Zhao Zhengmin could find out any address he wanted. Although he did not know who Yun Jian was, he was going along with the instincts of being a talent scout to recruit all the potential talents he could find. Looking for Yun Jian was not a challenge to the man.
“I don’t,” Yun Jian answered and planned to leave with Chen Xinyi.
It was at this time that Zhao Zhengmin was struck with another idea. Aware that Yun Jian was going to reject him once again and seeing that Chen Xinyi was rather pretty, he went in front of them to stop them in the blink of an eye.
This time, the man spoke to Chen Xinyi, “Hi, young lady. I’m Zhao Zhengmin, a talent scout from Beiguang Model Agency. When I saw your friend the last time, I thought she has the potential to become a model or to act in our company’s films. I honestly think it’s a pity that she doesn’t join us. Young lady, I think you’re rather pretty too. Are you interested to join our company...”
