Complete Martial Arts Attributes - Chapter 270 - Departure And Travel
Chapter 270: Departure And Travel
“President, this is not about acting alone. At this stage, I have no choice but to make this decision,” Wang Teng said helplessly.
“You’re right.” Peng Yuanshan nodded. “It’s unfair to put you with the other freshmen with your ability.”
“It’s not about fairness. Everyone has their own path. This is just my choice,” Wang Teng said.
“I will accept your request.” Peng Yuanshan didn’t say anything else. He agreed.
“Thank you, president!” Wang Teng was grateful.
Every school had its rules. Especially in Huanghai Military Academy, the rules were stricter.
Freshmen were not allowed to leave the school for no reason. However, Peng Yuanshan had made an exception for him.
“Don’t thank me so early. I will allow you to take a long break, but you must promise me a few things,” Peng Yuanshan said.
“Please say it.”
“I don’t care how you study. In the semester finals, you must get excellent marks for all your courses. You will also have to reach 5-star soldier level,” Peng Yuanshan said.
“No problem,” Wang Teng agreed without any hesitation.
Peng Yuanshan probably didn’t know that these weren’t difficult for him at all.
He would only need to spend some time picking up attributes for his theory courses. By then, it would be hard for him to fail. As for reaching 5-star soldier level, he was only one level away. There was still a long time until the semester exam. He would definitely be able to reach it.
“That was a fast reply. It looks like you’re really confident. Is my request a little too low?” Peng Yuanshan smiled and asked.
“Erm, I think that it’s enough. We need to give the other students some room to catch up with me. If I stand out too much, they will feel inferior,” Wang Teng replied shamelessly.
“You little brat!” Peng Yuanshan pointed at him with his index finger. He then shook his head and laughed. “What plans do you have?”
“I will go to the Xingwu Continent,” Wang Teng replied.
“I guessed that.” Peng Yuanshan pondered before suggesting, “When you go to the Xingwu Continent, don’t just think about killing star beasts and doing missions. There are many things you can learn there. From what I know, some people disguise themselves as locals and merge with the people there. They roam the Xingwu Continent to acquire their knowledge and wisdom. You will have many gains.”
“You can do that?” Wang Teng opened his eyes wide.
“How do you think we interacted with them at the start?” Peng Yuanshan said meaningfully.
“I see.” Wang Teng touched his chin. He was enlightened. “We merged into their culture and stole their knowledge. We shortened the gap between us. By the time they reacted, we could already speak to them on the same level.”
“We have our advantage, and they have theirs. We have common interests and goals, so we can maintain this so-called ‘peace,’” Peng Yuanshan said.
“Is it because of dark apparitions?” Wang Teng asked.
“Not really.” Peng Yuanshan stopped talking.
“You’re leaving me hanging again.” Wang Teng was speechless. He changed the topic when he noticed that the president had no intention of continuing. “Can’t the martial warriors from the Xingwu Continent tell that we’re in disguise?”
“As long as you don’t meet someone with strong spiritual power, they won’t notice anything amiss.” Peng Yuanshan said, “Of course, it won’t be a problem if you have a way to hide your spiritual mark.”
“Spiritual mark?” This was the first time Wang Teng had heard of this phrase. He was curious.
“Do you know why people from the Xingwu Continent aren’t able to pass through the dimensional rifts?” Peng Yuanshan asked.
“Could it be because of the spiritual mark?” Wang Teng replied.
“Yes. Based on our research, every world has its own mark. All the locals in that world have this mark. It’s in their spirit,” Peng Yuanshan explained.
“That’s why people with strong spiritual power can tell the difference in the spiritual marks.” Wang Teng took over the conversation.
“That’s right!” Peng Yuanshan nodded.
“Why can we pass through the dimensional rifts then?” This was the biggest question Wang Teng had. It didn’t make sense.
“This is related to world repelling,” Peng Yuanshan said.
“Are you saying that our world repels them, but their world doesn’t repel us?” Wang Teng was dumbstruck. Did the different worlds have their own conscience? Could things get more outrageous?
“You can say that.” Peng Yuanshan felt that he spoke too much, so he waved his hands and asked Wang Teng to leave. “Alright, you will know it when you should. There’s no use in asking so many questions now. Leave, leave. Don’t bother me.”
“Wait, you can’t leave me hanging. This is so uncomfortable.” Wang Teng felt extremely frustrated. However, he still got chased out of the office by Peng Yuanshan.
One day later, Wang Teng finished his preparations. He informed his family and told them not to worry. He even called Lin Chuhan to tell her his schedule in case she worried when she couldn’t find him. Then, he passed through the dimensional rift and left Earth.
Wang Teng bought a few Xingwu Continent attires. The attires here were quite vintage. Humans here were similar to the humans on Earth. There were both white- and yellow-skin humans. Their attires were different too. It was like the difference in eastern and western culture.
Wang Teng was a yellow-skin human. When he wore the ancient-looking attire, his aura changed entirely.
He wore an amazing outfit and carried his weapon carrier casket behind his back. He was like a handsome young master traveling through the pugilistic world. He was imposing, carefree, and charismatic.
A person with a handsome face would look good in anything he wore.
Wang Teng stared at the mirror and shook his head. He felt frustrated.
Sigh, I wonder how many innocent young ladies will be charmed by me~
After getting his clothes, Wang Teng arrived at the Force floating airship transfer station in Yong City. He was going to head to the other cities where Xingwu Continent locals were gathered.
The transfer station was packed with people. You could see many different races rushing along with their luggage bags, chasing after their Force floating airship. Shouts were heard everywhere, making the scene noisy.
After asking the person at the ticketing counter, Wang Teng learned that the nearest city was Yang City. He decided to make that his first destination.
“Please give me a ticket to Yang City,” Wang Teng spoke to the beautiful lady at the counter.
The counter lady looked at Wang Teng’s face. Her eyes shimmered slightly as she said, “Okay, please wait for a moment.”
After Wang Teng paid, she quickly handed him a ticket through the window.
“The Force floating airship heading to Yang City is about to depart. The Force floating airship heading to Yang City is about to depart… Passengers who haven’t boarded the airship, please board as soon as possible.”
An announcement rang out from the broadcast system.
Wang Teng hastened his pace and finally managed to catch the Force floating airship that was about to depart.
“Get in quickly. If you were a little later, you would have to wait three more hours,” the ticket officer smiled and said.
“Thank you!” Wang Teng thanked the officer and stepped into the Force floating airship.
At that moment, a voice came from behind him. Wang Teng looked behind. Two young ladies around 17 years old were running over frantically.
“It looks like I’m not the only lucky person.”
Wang Teng smiled. He didn’t take much notice of the two ladies and stepped into the Force floating airship. He found a corner seat and closed his eyes to rest.
After some time, the Force floating airship shuddered slightly and rose into the sky. Wang Teng looked out of the window. The building and humans below were becoming smaller and smaller. Finally, they turned into tiny dots.
“Qingxin, there are free seats here,” a voice broke his train of thought.
Wang Teng turned and saw the two ladies from earlier walking over.
“Hello, we can’t find any empty seats. Can we sit here?”
The two ladies looked around his age, and they were very pretty, especially the lady who spoke. She wore a long black dress, and her aura was elegant and noble.
“Sure,” Wang Teng nodded and replied.
“Thank you!” Fei Qingxin thanked him.
“You’re welcome. No one was sitting here anyway,” Wang Teng said.
“You’re a bad guy. You keep staring at our Qingxin.” The other lady beside her suddenly rolled her eyes at Wang Teng.
Wang Teng: (⊙_⊙)
Wasn’t it normal to size up a beauty when he saw one? Why was he a bad guy?
“Qiaoqiao!” Fei Qingxin scolded her friend. She turned and said to Wang Teng, “Don’t listen to her bullshit. My name is Fei Qingxin. This is Meng Qiao. What about you?”
“You both are not just beautiful, but even your names are pleasant.” Wang Teng smiled and said, “I’m Wang Teng.”
“Your name doesn’t sound like a good person’s,” Meng Qiao said. She didn’t seem to like Wang Teng.
Wang Teng: …
“My bestie has a sharp tongue. Ignore her.” Fei Qingxin smiled awkwardly. “Did you come from another city? Did you come to take a look at this city built by the otherworld?”
Otherworld! Wang Teng thought to himself. In the past, they always referred to the Xingwu Continent as the otherworld. This was the first time he heard someone calling Earth the otherworld. He found it strange, but he still nodded and said, “Yes. I came here because I was curious. Are you locals from Yang City?”
“Yes, we sneaked out.” Fei Qingxin stuck out her tongue cheekily. She asked, “What about you? Where are you from?”
“I am from another province. I’m traveling the Xingwu Continent and am preparing to visit Yang City.” Wang Teng had already thought of his excuse.
There were five main provinces in the Xingwu Continent, and every single one of them was vast. If he claimed that he was from a faraway province, no one would be able to find anything.
“You must be very strong since you’re able to travel the Xingwu Continent at such a young age!” Fei Qingxin said in admiration.
“Tsk, Qingxin, don’t get fooled by him. Look at how clean he is. He doesn’t look like someone who has been traveling for long. I think that he’s a liar who’s good at swindling young ladies.” Meng Qiao came to expose him again. She didn’t care about what he thought.
“I can’t bathe?” Wang Teng was speechless.
“Hmph, who knows if you’re telling the truth? You don’t look like a good person. You look like a pretty boy. You must be weak,” Meng Qiao scoffed.
“Qiaoqiao, this is too much.” Fei Qingxin smiled apologetically at Wang Teng. She hurriedly pulled Meng Qiao away. “What’s wrong with you? Why are you targeting him?”
“I’m not targeting him. He’s just suspicious. Qingxin, I promised your brother that I will take good care of you. I can’t let you get fooled by those stupid guys outside,” Meng Qiao said.
“Pfft, what do you mean by getting fooled by stupid guys? Am I an idiot?” Fei Qingxin rebuked.
“How will I know? The words ‘so handsome’ were almost written in your eyes when you looked at him,” Meng Qiao said with disdain.
“I didn’t.” Fei Qingxin immediately blushed.
