“Congratulations, you’ve obtained one Botany Fundamentals Encyclopedia skill book. Proficiency index, elementary-grade.”
A big book floated in front of Sun Mo, flashing with an intense green glow.
“I’ve finally gotten my hands on this book!”
Sun Mo felt emotional. If he had enough favorable impression points, he’d also buy this skill book.
Just learning about plants wasn’t enough. It’d only allow one to be able to discern and appraise plants. If one wished to become a true botanist, they had to study plants’ physiology, hereditary traits, evolution, and even ecology. If they wished to go one step further, they had to study the influence that the surrounding environments had on the plants.
A few seconds later, the system notified that Sun Mo had grasped the fundamental knowledge of botany. This meant that if Sun Mo were to come across plants that he hadn’t seen before, he could also study and analyze them through the knowledge he had grasped. From there, he could come up with the conclusion of the plants’ detailed data.
In the past, Sun Mo was only able to memorize the information, and he’d be rendered useless once he came across plants he hadn’t learned of. However, this wouldn’t happen now. He already possessed the ability to analyze.
Sun Mo had another gold treasure chest.
After the light dissipated, what was left behind was a red skill book. It was quite big.
“Congratulations, you’ve obtained one Dark Ferocious Beasts Encyclopedia. It has 1,000 types of ferocious beasts from the Darkness Continent recorded on it. Proficiency index, elementary-grade.”
Sun Mo couldn’t help but whistle. What day was it today? Why did he keep opening amazing items? To great teachers, skill books were the best spoils of battle, and it was also what they needed the most.
An Xinhui caught up.
Li Ziqi and the other two greeted her.
Ying Baiwu was very reserved. Although she called An Xinhui ‘Mistress’, she still treated her as an outsider. Therefore, she let go of Sun Mo’s hand.
However, Lu Zhiruo didn’t care about that. She continued to hold onto him tightly.
An Xinhui couldn’t help but throw a glance. Thankfully, she knew that they were teacher and student. Otherwise, she’d feel jealous.
However, being called Mistress felt very refreshing!
Should she give them a gift? Or should she do that after she got married to Sun Mo?
An Xinhui felt torn.
Li Ziqi pulled the papaya girl off Sun Mo. (Don’t you have some judgment? At a time like this, we should leave some time for Teacher and Mistress to be alone, letting them deepen their relationship.)
The bright moon scattered a silvery-white glow on the surface of the lake.
An Xinhui’s heart was palpitating very fast and she suddenly didn’t know what she should say. Sun Mo, as someone who had always been single, had no experience of having fun with girls either.
“Congratulations, as your prestige connection with An Xinhui has risen, you’re specially rewarded with one gold treasure chest.”
Sun Mo looked up. His lucky mascot had left. Should he open the treasure chest or not?
“Little Momo, how many great teacher halos have you grasped up until now?”
An Xinhui could only come up with a conversation topic after seeing that Sun Mo was silent.
Sun Mo said calmly.
An Xinhui looked surprised and she subconsciously asked this. She knew that Sun Mo must have definitely grasped six great teacher halos. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have dared to sign up for the two-star great teacher examinations. But nine...
To speak the truth, this number was too astonishing. After all, it had only been a year since Sun Mo had graduated. His aptitude was even more amazing than those top graduates from the Nine Greats!
Great teacher halos weren’t something that could be learned. They could only be comprehended. Moreover, they were also the prerequisite for a great teacher to rise in their star level.
Many great teachers, even if they had already reached the grandmaster level in terms of their theoretical knowledge, were unable to rise to higher star levels because they hadn’t comprehended enough halos.
Sun Mo repeated.
An Xinhui turned her head away and looked at Sun Mo’s expression, not knowing what she should say. From his tone, it sounded as if he was saying something as simple and plain as if he had eaten soy milk and fried dough fritters for breakfast.
However, this was definitely a record-breaking comprehension speed!
Why did Liu Mubai only wait until this year before he started challenging the exams? It was because he hadn’t grasped enough great teacher halos before this!
However, Sun Mo grasped nine of them, three years earlier than Liu Mubai did.
“I feel that Gu Qingyan’s loss is justified!”
An Xinhui smiled in self-mockery. Even she felt as if she had been given a great blow.
“Then what about your realm?”
An Xinhui actually wanted to ask what those nine great teacher halos were, but this involved his personal privacy, so she held her curiosity in.
“First level of the divine force realm!”
Sun Mo didn’t hide anything.
An Xinhui frowned.
Sun Mo was perplexed.
“It’s a little low!”
After An Xinhui said that, she felt that her words might deal a blow to Sun Mo. She quickly explained, “Of course, it’s considered a great achievement to be able to reach the divine force realm at your age!
“It’s because you’re a genius that people of your age no longer have the rights to be your competitor!
“Take this two-star great teacher examination for example. Those who are participating in it are all great teachers who have become one-star great teachers a long time ago. Their average age is above 25 years old.
“In terms of their cultivation, teaching experience, and time, they far surpass you.”
Sun Mo nodded. This was like playing a game. As you had started late, there were already quite a number of high level players in front of you and even players who had maxed out their level.
It was because they had been playing for very long that the equipment they had was better than yours, and so was their battle experience.
“The two-star great teacher examination will test the great teachers’ battle prowess. Based on past years’ results, you have to at least reach the third level of the divine force realm to have a chance to pass. And if you wish to be ranked at the top, then you’ll have to reach the fifth level!”
An Xinhui explained.
Not only did two-star great teachers require superb teaching capabilities, but they also needed strong battle prowess. After all, the strong were always respected.
Sun Mo frowned. He now had two Divine Force Fruits. He could only rise by two levels at most.
“That’s right. But the most important thing is still your personal disciples’ results. Even if you passed, you would still fail if they couldn’t get good results.”
A great teacher should be an expert at educating others and producing good students. That was its most important role.
Therefore, the students’ results took up an extremely great ratio in the overall results.
“As long as Xuanyuan Po isn’t too unlucky, then passing shouldn’t be a problem. Ying Baiwu is still a little off!”
An Xinhui smiled, encouraging Sun Mo. “In my opinion, you have a 90% chance to pass!”
Lu Zhiruo’s baffled voice suddenly rang out from behind them. “I feel that Teacher will definitely be able to get the two-star title... Hey, why did you press my head down?”
An Xinhui was stunned and turned her head back. She saw that Li Ziqi was getting help from Ying Baiwu to grab onto Lu Zhiruo’s arm and head, dragging her toward the flower bushes.
The little sunny egg was going to die from awkwardness.
After they moved a distance away, they made a detour back from the side, snooping in on the duo’s conversation. However, Lu Zhiruo suddenly darted out.
“Do you know how to listen in secretly?”
Li Ziqi felt helpless.
“Why do we need to listen in secretly?”
The papaya girl blinked her pure and innocent big eyes. “Can’t we just listen openly?
“Forget it! Forget I ever said anything!”
Li Ziqi pinched her forehead.
“Zhiruo holds great admiration for you!”
An Xinhui felt envious. This was trust without the slightest doubt. In the papaya girl’s heart, there was nothing that Sun Mo couldn’t do.
Sun Mo smiled. “That’s why I must pass.”
Feeling Sun Mo’s determination, An Xinhui fell silent. She turned her head and saw the side of his face. It emitted confidence and pride under the moonlight.
This disposition was very charming!
“Oh, right, are you Gandalf?”
An Xinhui suddenly thought of something.
Sun Mo couldn’t be bothered to lie.
An Xinhui didn’t know what she should say and she stopped talking. She looked at Sun Mo’s back view, her face only left with a stunned expression.
(To think that my childhood friend is talented in both calligraphy and art!)
Favorable impression point from An Xinhui +1,000. Reverence (11,900/100,000).
An Xinhui liked the book [Journey to the West] a lot. When she felt very fatigued and helpless, it was monkey Sun who helped to dispel her stress.
“I want the sky to be unable to cover my eyes. I want the earth to be unable to bury my heart. I want all the gods and buddhas in the world to disappear!”
What An Xinhui liked the most was the scene before the Monkey King wreaked havoc in the heavenly palace. However, after monkey Sun was saved by Tang Sanzang from the Five Finger Mountain and headed off to the west to obtain the sutras, An Xinhui felt that the Monkey King whom she admired and liked had died.
On the night she saw this part, An Xinhui cried for a very long time.
At the thought of this, An Xinhui suddenly quickened her pace.
Sun Mo saw An Xinhui coming over, lashing out her small fist.
An Xinhui punched Sun Mo.
(Return me my Monkey King!)
An Xinhui’s lips moved, but she didn’t say anything. Instead, she kept her gaze on Sun Mo, looking at his big eyes that had distinct black and white, like yin and yang.
Such an interesting novel, a novel that made so many people obsessed about it so frantically, a novel that had so many unforgettable characters...
So it was written by my fiancé?
“You want me to continue the second half?”
Sun Mo was puzzled, but he felt a little spooked to be stared at by his fiancée like that.
An Xinhui smiled. She suddenly put out her hand and hugged Sun Mo.
Sun Mo subconsciously put up a struggle, but he then felt the hug becoming even tighter.
“No need! I don’t need to read the second half!”
An Xinhui’s beautiful lips broke into a smile. Then, she secretly added in her heart. “It’s because I’ve found my Monkey King!”
“Oh my, they are hugging!”
Lu Zhiruo raised her hand and covered her eyes. Her father told her about ‘see no evil’ before. However, she couldn’t hold it in. Therefore, she opened up her slender fingers, secretly peeping through them.
Ying Baiwu’s lips twitched and then turned her head to look toward the moon’s reflection on the surface of the lake.
Li Ziqi looked at the two who were locked in an embrace, and for some reason, she felt a little disappointed.
(What is this? I should be feeling happy for Teacher!)
“Hmmm? Eldest Martial Sister, why are you crying?”
Lu Zhiruo asked softly.
“The tears are of joy and happiness!”
Li Ziqi explained, trying hard to force out a smile.
After returning to the school, An Xinhui went to her office to continue working. Sun Mo went back to the villa and Li Ziqi and the other two also followed him.
Sun Mo patted the papaya girl’s head.
“Open the chest!”
The gold treasure chest opened and amidst the brilliant light, many golden words gushed out like water from a fountain.
“What the hell?”
Sun Mo was given a shock. This was the first time he had come across a situation like this.
“Congratulations, you’ve obtained a fragmented chapter of the peerless-grade saint-tier cultivation art, Undying Mystic Art, part five.”
Sun Mo didn’t know if he should be feeling happy or sad. The special effect was so brilliant and unique. As expected of something good. But the words ‘fragmented chapter’ dismissed his fervency.
Sun Mo hated collecting the most. He hadn’t even finished collecting the mysterious turtle shells, yet now there was another fragmented saint-tier cultivation art!
“How I wish I could spend money to get these settled!”
Sun Mo sighed. “How many parts are there altogether?”
“Nine.” The system explained.
“F*ck your mom, are you deliberately making things difficult for me?”
Sun Mo felt displeased and opened the system shopping store.
“There’s no need to check. This peerless-grade saint-tier cultivation art is too powerful and is a rare item. Therefore, it won’t be put up for sale in the shopping store.”
The system wiped off Sun Mo’s thoughts of using favorable impression points to purchase it.
“Can I cultivate just a single part of it?”
Sun Mo asked.
“You can’t, but you can do that for the first part!”
The system smiled. “But if you aren’t afraid to die, you can give it a try!”
Sun Mo cursed in his heart. He really wanted to say it out loud, but forget it. He should check out the Undying Mystic Art’s introduction first.
There were a total of 18 levels to this mystic art and when one reached the great circle, they’d enjoy eternal life, turning into an immortal!
“F*ck, does it have to sound so exaggerated?”
Sun Mo didn’t believe that.
“Become an immortal? What’s an immortal like?”
Sun Mo sneered.
“It’s just a figure of speech, get it? You really did learn your language from a physical education teacher!”
The system said in contempt.
“Physical education teachers refuse to take responsibility for this.”
Sun Mo pouted. There wasn’t even a concrete introduction for this Undying Mystic Art except for this one line. To tell the truth, Sun Mo had a strong impulse to destroy it.
However, he still couldn’t bear to do it. After all, even a salted fish had dreams. What if he were to collect all of them one day?
Sun Mo wasn’t sleepy and was planning to head to the Wind King Hall, eat the Divine Force Fruits, and strive for a higher level. But then, he was disturbed by the sound of Gu Xiuxun knocking on his door.
“What is it?”
Sun Mo frowned slightly. (It’s so late at night. Why aren’t you sleeping but running to a male colleague’s place? You’ll give me the wrong idea by doing this!)
“You left your maid behind at Linjiang Square!”
After Gu Xiuxun said that, Sun Mo saw the maid from Governor Fang’s place standing beside her. Her name seemed to be Yi Cui`e.
“This servant pays respect to Old Master!”
The maid called out respectfully then knelt on the floor, giving three loud kowtows.
“Don’t call me Old Master!”
Sun Mo felt troubled by this.
At this moment, Dong He came out. When she saw the maid, she felt a sense of danger. However, at the same time, she also felt a little helpless.
Given how outstanding her master was, there’d definitely be more important figures sending him women to get into his good books.
Yi Cui`e immediately shrank her neck back like a young quail. Then, glistening tears trickled down onto the floor.
“Why did you scare her?”
Gu Xiuxun glared at Sun Mo.
Sun Mo smiled bitterly. As a modern person, he really wasn’t used to having maids. He couldn’t get it past himself.
“Do you want her?”
Sun Mo lowered his voice.
“Why would I want her for? It’s clear that she was bought by a big clan from a young age and carefully nurtured. Why would I, a poor teacher, keep her with me?”
Gu Xiuxun rolled her eyes and looked suspiciously at Sun Mo.(Are you an actual fool or are you just pretending to be one? You won’t be able to buy such a maid outside. If she was put into the market, people would fight to get her.)
