Qi Shengjia had a wooden personality. To use a sentence to describe him, it would be that he had no imagination. No matter what he was doing, he would do it by the prescribed order. Once there were some minor changes, he wouldn’t be able to understand the thing anymore.
Bluntly speaking, he wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.
However, the honest guy had two plus points. Firstly, he was extremely obedient. Secondly, he was extremely hardworking and would never complain about fatigue.
Qi Shengjia knew that if he didn’t wish to go back to his village and let his future child suffer the same experiences as him, he could only do his utmost and cultivate.
Although he didn’t know if cultivation would be helpful, other than this, with his shallow knowledge, he truly had no idea what to do.
As Sun Mo kneaded his body, Qi Shengjia was so nervous that his muscles were extremely tight. He was like a frozen log and assumed a pose where he was ready to be lectured.
“Teacher will definitely be unsatisfied with my progress, right?”
Qi Shengjia felt a very strong sense of self-inferiority. Right now, all the cultivation resources he was enjoying were something others wouldn’t be able to obtain even if one gave them ten years. If his improvement progress was too slow, he was afraid that Sun Mo would chase him away.
Sun Mo praised.
“Teacher, I’ve let down your expectation. Please punish me!”
Qi Shengjia basically didn’t listen to what Sun Mo was saying. At the instant he spoke, the honest guy who was in fear and trepidation directly knelt onto the ground with a thud.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Three kowtows could be heard as Qi Shengjia banged his forehead against the floor.
Everyone was speechless. Even Lu Zhiruo who was always filled with an abundance of sympathy for others also shook her head. (Big Brother Qi, you are so foolish. How can you marry a wife in the future?)
“I said that you’ve done well!”
Sun Mo rolled his eyes.
Qi Shengjia scratched his head and had a dumbfounded look on his face. Having been scolded and viewed in contempt for over ten years, the honest guy was a stranger to compliments.
“Train according to my cultivation plan for you. You just have to intensify your current training load by one-third!”
Sun Mo was indeed very satisfied. Qi Shengjia had perfectly followed his cultivation plan and didn’t do a single second more or less. Besides, he ate his meals at the prescribed time and slept the exact amount of sleep as instructed. Other than this, he wouldn’t do anything extra.
For example, he wouldn’t find buddies for a meal or find a girlfriend.
One must know that Qi Shengjia was a member of the battle hall. Even if he was weak, as long as he was a part of the battle hall, plenty of students would wish to have a good relationship with him. However, he would always reject when others invited him for a meal.
One could say that Qi Shengjia followed Sun Mo’s cultivation plan as though it was an imperial edict.
For this matter, even the most obedient Lu Zhiruo wasn’t able to accomplish it. There was no solution. Humans would always have unexpected incidents popping up. It was very normal for one to slip in a daze at times.
However, the honest guy would absolutely not allow this to happen. To say something exaggeratedly, if Sun Mo added the schedule to go to the toilet per day, Qi Shengjia would definitely follow it strictly.
“Your body and mental state are at their peak currently. You are able to erupt forth with your greatest combat strength at any moment.”
Sun Mo inspected Qi Shengjia’s body and felt a little excited. This was his masterpiece. Qi Shengjia proved that the cultivation plan Sun Mo designed for him had no mistakes.
All of a sudden, Sun Mo suddenly had a new thought. Since Qi Shengjia was so obedient, why didn’t he design an even more detailed cultivation plan?
“Later on, head to the logistics department and withdraw 10,000 taels of silver. I’ll give you a dietary plan, and you have to follow it strictly every day!”
Because the honest guy was poor, he would always be very cheap when it came to eating. Hence, his body had insufficient nutrients.
Qi Shengjia was badly frightened and felt somewhat terrified. “10,000 taels of silver? Isn’t that too much?”
“Don’t doubt my words. Just follow my instructions!”
Sun Mo didn’t wish to explain.
(Boohoohoo, teacher is so good to me. How should I pay him back?)
Qi Shengjia felt conflicted.
Favorable impression points from Qi Shengjia +500. Reverence(21,500/100,000).
“Oh right, as for Xuanyuan Po’s style of combat, you can observe but do not learn from him.”
Sun Mo warned.
Qi Shengjia scratched his head and had a perplexed look on his face. He wanted to ask something but didn’t dare to.
“You have your own combat style. If you learn his style, you would only cause yourself to feel confused.”
Sun Mo spoke tactfully, “In the future, during combat, you don’t have to care how your opponents are fighting. Just do things according to your pace and unleash your moves in a fixed manner.”
“I will obey Teacher’s teachings!”
Qi Shengjia bowed.
Li Ziqi and Ying Baiwu sighed. The underlying meaning in her teacher’s words was that Qi Shengjia was too dumb. He didn’t know how to be flexible.
“Teacher, I have an important thing to report!”
Li Ziqi stood up.
After returning to the villa, the little sunny egg poured a cup of tea for Sun Mo first. After that, she took out a book filled with writing and placed it before him.
“Teacher, the school has recently encountered some trouble. Zhang Hanfu established ties with many teachers and wants to request a pay raise. Although the great teachers from Wang Su’s faction didn’t personally go on the scene, they are definitely very happy to see this happen. After all, no one would dislike a raise.”
Li Ziqi eloquently and fluently explained.
In the heart of the little sunny egg, half of the Central Province Academy belonged to her teacher. In addition, it was all due to her teacher’s effort that it was able to rise to the ‘C’ grade. Hence, Li Ziqi absolutely wouldn’t watch on as it declined.
Sun Mo looked at the information in his hands and discovered that the majority of it was some private information about great teachers. This included their personality and habits, their styles when interacting with others, and their social network like who they were close with.
Sun Mo was dumbfounded. (Little sunny egg, being a student is truly a waste of your talent. You can be the best secretary in the world!)
There was nothing to pick on about her capabilities.
Sun Mo discovered that other than this information, Li Ziqi also added her own judgment in the end about which of them could be persuaded and which were adamant to cause trouble, unwilling to negotiate. The latter all had to be chased away.
(Wait a minute, I want to retract my previous words. Being a secretary is also a waste of Ziqi’s talent.)
“Ziqi, you are so outstanding. I will feel a sense of inferiority!”
Sun Mo sighed ruefully. He had really picked up a treasure.
Li Ziqi who was currently reporting the current situation suddenly fell speechless upon hearing Sun Mo’s words. After that, her pretty face instantly turned red as she lowered her head shyly.
“Teacher, you are so loathsome, what nonsense are you talking about?”
Li Ziqi muttered, her tiny heart was thumping furiously.
(Aiya, why do I have to be so nervous? Isn’t it just a sentence of praise? Teacher has also praised me before in the past.)
“Have you learned Emperor Intention before?”
Sun Mo was curious. He heard that all emperors knew this and it was a tier higher compared to Thick Black Theory*.
“I’ve never heard of that before, but my past teachers taught me many things. Among the things I’ve learned, there’s how to read and use people. However, I’ve only grasped the tip of the iceberg.”
Li Ziqi was humble. She had a retentive memory and had long since finished reading all the book collections of the royal palace. In the end, her imperial teachers had nothing left to teach her.
After all, Li Ziqi was too much of a genius.
In the past, the little sunny egg couldn’t be bothered to care about these matters. However, the Central Province Academy belonged to her personal teacher, in that case, she would definitely protect it well for him.
“I’ve made you worried!”
Sun Mo patted the seat beside him. “Come, come over and sit here.”
Li Ziqi sat down cross-legged and placed her hands on her knees, appearing very virtuous while exuding an aura of nobility.
Sun Mo no longer spoke. Instead, he stared at the young girl with a gentle look in his eyes as he stroked her hair. This was the first time Sun Mo felt concerned ever since he arrived in the Middle-Earth Nine Provinces.
Naturally, the papaya girl and Ying Baiwu were also concerned about Sun Mo, but they were ultimately still children and had no idea how to express it. They had the heart to do it but didn’t know what to do.
As for An Xinhui, she was also very concerned about this childhood sweetheart of hers. But they were ultimately both adults. Hence, she would try to take care of him instead of doing her best to help him out.
Li Ziqi lowered her head. Her finger clasped the edge of her uniform before she relaxed her grip. She did this a total of three times.
Favorable impression points from Li Ziqi +100. Reverence (23,210/100,000).
Sun Mo didn’t know why the little sunny egg suddenly contributed favorable impression points, as he was the one receiving help. However, this wasn’t the main point. “The information you collected is very important for me!”
“Teacher, what do you plan to do?”
Li Ziqi was curious.
“Let everything fall apart!”
Sun Mo laughed. “Since Zhang Hanfu isn’t willing to resign and leave peacefully. He better not blame me for being ruthless.”
Upon seeing Sun Mo’s confident smile, Li Ziqi felt that her teacher was very impressive. No matter how great the crisis was, it seemed like her teacher would never panic.
“Oh right, the darkness illusion dojo has been constructed. However, Headmaster An wants to wait for you to return to participate in the completion ceremony. Hence, other than her, no one has seen how things are inside the darkness illusion dojo.”
Li Ziqi reported.
Sun Mo rose and walked to the door. “Just relax and continue with your own studies. I will handle the remaining matters!”
Li Ziqi chased after Sun Mo. She then opened her eyes wide and sincerely implored, “Can I follow you?”
“Things like this can be a little filthy!”
Sun Mo laughed.
“I wish to follow by your side and learn the methods you use to resolve problems. At the same time, I can be your assistant and handle some miscellaneous matters for you!”
Li Ziqi saw Sun Mo falling silent. She then tugged his arm and shook it lightly. “I really have no interest in cultivation. As for reading books. I’ve read all the books in the Central Province Academy’s library. Hence, I feel somewhat bored!”
“You finished reading everything?”
Sun Mo was startled.
“Yes. Although there are some areas I can’t understand, I don’t wish to consult other teachers!”
A trace of cunning light flashed in the little sunny egg’s eyes. She was complimenting Sun Mo while also trying to bargain with him. (Look, I can also be considered a genius, right?)
(Won’t you satisfy this small request of mine?)
Sun Mo felt a little headache. He suddenly sensed an immense pressure on him. (I have to work hard too. If I fail to teach Ziqi well, not only would it be embarrassing, but I would have wasted her talent as well.)
(Ai, who says that one would surely feel blessed if they picked up a treasure?)
Sun Mo went to look for An Xinhui, and Li Ziqi followed behind him like a little puppy. Upon seeing this, Sun Mo suddenly realized something. No matter what, he could be considered the logistics department head, someone that possessed authority, right? He should be qualified to have a secretary.
An Xinhui was a workaholic. Hence, one would always be able to find her if they went to the headmaster office.
“Little Mo...Eh, Teacher Sun, you came?”
An Xinhui directly stood up when she saw Sun Mo entering, there was a look of joy on her face. But after she saw Li Ziqi following behind him, the nickname she always called him got swallowed back into her throat.
“Little Momo? How adorable, I also wish to call Teacher that name a few times too!”
Li Ziqi’s lips silently curled.
Just when Sun Mo and An Xinhui were discussing how to resolve the current crisis, Cao Xian and Yue Rongbo entered the gate of the Central Province Academy with expressions that state they were determined to succeed.
Note: Thick Black Theory is a philosophical treatise written by Li Zongwu:李宗吾, a disgruntled politician and scholar born at the end of the Qing Dynasty. It was published in China in 1911, the year of the Xinhai Revolution, when the Qing dynasty was overthrown.
