“What’s Teacher Sun doing?”
The entire battle dojo fell silent as everyone stared at Sun Mo and Duan Yingmei. (If there’s something you have to say, why can’t you say it out loud in public?)
Cao Xian felt uneasy, but he couldn’t possibly stop Sun Mo from talking or his reputation would be destroyed.
As a headmaster, leaving aside their capabilities, they should at the very least be broad-minded enough, right?
Also, from the looks of things, it was clear that Sun Mo was providing guidance for Duan Yingmei!
Three minutes later, Sun Mo took a few steps back and smiled as he looked at Duan Yingmei. He clasped his fist. “I hope Teacher Duan will be able to break through your bottleneck as soon as possible and head up to the next level!”
Duan Yingmei had an agitated look on her face; sweat could be seen on her forehead and nose. Her lips trembled, but her mind was extremely chaotic. She didn’t know what she should say. Hence, she directly knelt.
After seeing this, the entire scene was in an uproar.
One must know that Duan Yingmei was a 3-star great teacher; her knees were very valuable. But now, she directly knelt before Sun Mo.
What had Sun Mo done exactly?
“Teacher Duan, there’s no need to act like this!”
Sun Mo hurriedly went forward a few steps and helped Duan Yingmei up. At such a moment, since he wanted to act, he naturally had to go all out.
“I have no way to repay Teacher Sun’s great favor!”
Tears involuntarily flowed from Duan Yingmei’s eyes.
After being stuck at her bottleneck for several years, she finally saw the hope of achieving a breakthrough. Moreover, she now had the chance to reach a target she had never dared to dream about.
Sun Mo generously told her the complete version of the Burning Moon Heart Sutra. Also, the words he recited to her was precisely the part that was missing from her fragmented copy.
He could tell where her flaws were by just observing her battle with Jin Mujie.
What terrifying judgment was this?
As for her kneeling down, all great teachers had to have their own moral integrity. However, Sun Mo gave her a brand new future.
Sun Mo smiled. He exerted force with his hands and helped Duan Yingmei up by supporting her via her elbows. However, he was grumbling in his heart.
(Hey, are you guys pig teammates? Don’t you know how to act along with me?)
(If I’m the carry, where’s my support?)
(I can’t possibly be the one to speak out about headhunting her, right?)
(That would be inappropriate and go against my act as a generous person!)
An Xinhui actually wanted to headhunt her, but as the headmaster, she felt awkward to broach the topic. Hence, she glanced at Gu Xiuxun and shot a look at her.
Gu Xiuxun immediately understood. But before she spoke, Li Ziqi already did.
“Teacher Duan, why don’t you join our Central Province Academy? Evidently, my teacher did so because he admires your talent and capabilities very much!”
Li Ziqi smiled sweetly, her casual words contained no trace of teasing at all.
Duan Yingmei was stunned. After that, she felt extremely moved.
If she stayed beside Sun Mo, she would be able to know the essential points of the Burning Moon Heart Sutra even more. Moreover, he had God Hands. If he gave her a massage a few times every year, her improvement would definitely be very great.
“Teacher Duan, do not disgrace yourself!”
Cao Xian grew anxious. Duan Yingmei was a great teacher he favored quite a lot. Now that he saw she was about to be poached over, he was so angry that he wanted to kill Sun Mo.
When Duan Yingmei heard this, she felt a little unhappy. (So what even if I want to leave? I don’t owe you anything!)
(But by saying this, wouldn’t they assume that I’ve done something bad?)
“Headmaster Cao, do you know what Teacher Sun said to me earlier?”
Duan Yingmei wanted to explain clearly.
Cao Xian’s expression froze.
“Teacher Sun held nothing back and told me everything that my fragmented Burning Moon Heart Sutra lacked.”
A golden halo erupted from Duan Yingmei. This was Lingering Sound and was sufficient for her voice to travel around this entire space.
“That is a peerless-grade heaven-tier cultivation art!”
A commotion arose, after that, many gazes turned to look at Sun Mo.
“It can’t be right, he casually taught a peerless heaven-tier cultivation art to someone else?”
“Isn’t Teacher Sun a little too generous?”
“Could it be that the family of this guy owns a gold mine? He actually didn’t care about such a powerful art? Why don’t he give me one as well?”
Whispers abounded through the battle dojo. Let alone students, even some great teachers felt their eyes turning red with jealousy. They were envious of Duan Yingmei’s luck.
A peerless-grade heaven-tier cultivation art could become an ultimate divine art of certain schools and clans. It was impossible to buy a cultivation art of this level on the market.
It was too precious and it would usually only be exchanged for another item of equal level.
“I could have my current accomplishments because I obtained the Burning Moon Heart Sutra by chance in my youth. Sadly, it was a fragmented one. This indicates that my future is set in stone. However, Teacher Sun’s generosity allowed me to see the hope of reaching the legendary or even the saint realm. Tell me, do you think I’m disgracing myself when I knelt to him?”
Duan Yingmei counter-asked.
Cao Xian’s expression turned unsightly. Even he could understand Duan Yingmei’s conduct. If he was in her shoes, he might even visit Sun Mo every year with expensive gifts and respectfully refer to him as ‘Mentor Sun’.
As she spoke until here, Duan Yingmei made her decision.
“Headmaster Cao, thank you for nurturing me throughout these years. I dare say that I’ve not let your expectations down. Back then, when the Myriad Daos Academy ascended to become a ‘C’ grade famous school, I gave it my utmost to achieve this and almost died. I believe that what I paid is already enough.”
Duan Yingmei felt no guilt and had a clear conscience.
Headmaster Cao covered his face with his hands, not wanting to continue listening.
“Headmaster Cao, let us part on happy terms. In the future, if you need my help, just feel free to speak!”
After Duan Yingmei spoke, she clasped her hands toward Sun Mo and bowed. “In the future, I will have to ask Teacher Sun to take care of me more!”
Favorable impression points from Duan Yingmei +1,000. Respect (1,070/10,000).
“Teacher Duan, what are you saying? Being able to recruit you is a glory to my Central Province Academy.”
Sun Mo wasn’t a fool. He helped Duan Yingmei as an investment.
In all types of worlds, what was the most valuable thing?
It was worth it to pay a huge price to recruit her.
Moreover, even if Duan Yingmei had no talent, as long as he managed to recruit her in such a setting, that would be considered the greatest impact to the Myriad Daos Academy.
Just think about it. A great teacher whom the headmaster heavily trusted suddenly took the initiative to join an enemy school. This would definitely affect the choice of those soon-to-be students.
“That’s right, I’ve long since heard about Teacher Duan’s teaching capabilities!”
An Xinhui also stood out with a smile on her face. She had no way to restrain it.
Headhunting someone in public.
It felt so high!
Ever since the Central Province Academy declined, it had been far too long since they had flaunted their might around. When An Xinhui went around to recruit people while offering them high prices, she had always been rejected and had never succeeded before.
“Grandpa, your judgment was truly impressive. Little Momo is really too strong.”
An Xinhui sighed ruefully in her heart. She immediately chatted with Duan Yingmei. It would be good to set the terms of remuneration first.
“For matters like gold and silver, Teacher Duan definitely doesn’t lack them. You can just casually mention a number and we will pay the full sums to you on the 5th of every month!”
“Even if you don’t have enough to spend, it’s fine. You can find the school to withdraw extra money every time and there won’t be any interest charged. You can pay the loan back whenever you feel you have the ability to do so.”
When An Xinhui said this, it immediately attracted the attention of many people.
Wasn’t this a little too generous?
Cao Xian’s lips twitched. (Which great teacher would not pay when they owe money? Do they not want face? An Xinhui’s statement merely sounded nice.)
However, the Central Province Academy was truly rich and overbearing.
(If my Myriad Daos Academy was also so rich, there would be no need for me to listen to Li Zixing, and I could truly start working toward my ambitions.)
“To us cultivators, money is an external object. The most important thing is still spirit stones. The teachers of our Central Province Academy would receive a portion of spirit stones every month. If they produce results such as managing to recruit a good student or have contributed to a certain subject, they would also be entitled to additional spirit stones as a reward. There’s no limit to the number of spirit stones they can earn!
“So, the more impressive a great teacher is, the more spirit stones he or she would be able to receive.”
An Xinhui continued. She even subconsciously activated Lingering Sound because she wanted to let everyone know how good the Central Province Academy was.
As expected, the great teachers of the Myriad Daos Academy all pricked their ears up. After all, no one would find extra spirit stones a bother.
“It must be fake, right? If the Central Province Academy gives out spirit stones every month, how great of an expenditure must that be?”
“That’s surely fake, the Central Province Academy doesn’t have a mine. How would they get their spirit stones? Have you forgotten that in the past, they couldn’t even afford to pay the salaries of their teachers?”
“Yeah, if they could afford to pay so many spirit stones, why didn’t we hear any news about it in the past?”
The teachers of the Myriad Daos Academy were whispering to each other. However, the teachers of the Central Province Academy also grew anxious.
“What to do? In the future, there will be many people seeking employment at our Central Province Academy!”
In order to reduce the intensity of competition, the great teachers at the bottom level of the Central Province Academy had all privately agreed that no one was to leak out anything about the school rewarding them with spirit stones.
“Oh right, have you heard of our school’s darkness illusion dojo?”
“That is an extremely rare building. When you enter, you will be able to fight against your own illusion and the illusions of other great teachers. In fact, you can even fight against illusions of the battle gods of the ancient era. It will definitely allow one to improve greatly.”
An Xinhui tossed out another bigger piece of bait.
The great teachers of the Myriad Daos Academy pricked their ears even more up. Some even felt like quitting the Myriad Daos Academy now. There was no solution to it, a fine bird would naturally want to choose a good tree to nest.
Even for great teachers, they naturally wanted to join a better school!
Wang Su glanced at An Xinhui and then at Sun Mo.
This couple had such black hearts. (If you guys continued poaching people, Cao Xian might start putting his life on the line to fight against you both.)
“No, I can’t allow An Xinhui to continue speaking. If I lose their hearts, it isn’t going to be easy for me to continue leading them in the future even if they choose to stay in the Myriad Daos Academy.”
Cao Xian’s eyes were red as he looked at Fang Wuji who was behind him.
Fang Wuji lowered his head, pretending to have seen nothing.
Cao Xian was almost angered to death. However, he also knew of Fang Wuji’s personality, hence, he didn’t force him. He could only turn his gaze onto another young man.
(Luckily, I still have a trump card.)
“My name is Bai Qilin and I wish for Teacher Sun to give me some guidance!”
A fair-skinned young man walked out from the crowd and clasped his fist as he challenged Sun Mo.
His name was a little tyrannical.
Sun Mo immediately activated Divine Sight and looked over.
Yet, Cao Xian was so depressed that he almost coughed up blood. (Why are you challenging Sun Mo? He has four ‘kings’ while you have four ‘twos’, how can you win him in a showdown?)
(Have you not read about the Tianji Horse Race?*)
(You should just go face off against one of their mid-level horses!)
“Sun Mo, I’m cheering you on!”
An Xinhui cheered and waved her little fist. She heard of Bai Qilin before. He was a very powerful newbie and was qualified to be headhunted by her.
“I don’t dare to claim that I’m capable of giving you guidance. Let us spar and learn from each other!”
Sun Mo showed no fear at all. In fact, he was brimming with desire. (After all, I might manage to collect 100,000 favorable impression points today if I’m lucky enough.)
Just at this moment, the system notification rang out.
