With Lin Sheng providing technical expertise and the rest of them taking care of the remaining aspects, they registered the company.
Shayeen and the others decided that Lin Sheng would get 40% of the shares while the three of them split the rest.
Lin Sheng was not really bothered by it. He did not need income, what he needed was the ability to influence—power.
What he would teach was naturally not some hidden sword technique from Blackfeather City, rather it was a practical style of combat handpicked from his mess of memories.
This style of combat would be very useful. In contrast to freestyle combat that was popular in Xilin, the attacks in the new style mostly utilized the fist or elbows, and it was well suited for street fighting.
As for profits, he had never thought of it. By then, he would be the master, and his disciples would naturally gather around him. If they ran into any trouble, that would give them another point of contact.
This seemingly ethereal connection was what he wanted.
After all, Huaisha was not as peaceful as most commoners thought it was.
Very quickly, to Lin Sheng’s astonishment, the framework for the class had been set up way before the National Amateur Swordsmanship Tournament.
The location for the training grounds, under Lin Sheng’s suggestion, was not at the club itself. Instead, it was in Blackwater District because they managed to rent a wide place for cheap.
Russell had the best performance, while Shayeen came in second.
Madillan, on the other hand, seemed to be out of his depth.
Four days after Lin Sheng’s proposal, everything was in place, and once he aced the tournament, he would use his fame to kickstart their recruitment.
The moment the after-school bell rang, the teacher gathered his teaching materials and left the classroom.
Lin Sheng hurriedly got up as he picked up his already packed-up bag. He was about to leave the classroom for his sword practice in the park when…
Suddenly, a female voice called him.
Lin Sheng turned back and saw Shen Yan getting up and trotting toward him.
He had not been paying any attention to her for a while, and he was surprised to realize that Shen Yan was slowly becoming a beauty.
Her skin was smoother than before, and the few pimples on her face were all but gone. Even her chest had gotten bigger, making a nice contrast to her slender waist.
Beneath her short bob, was a pair of big bright eyes.
Lin Sheng calmly looked at her.
Shen Yan grumbled as she placed her hand on his shoulder.
“I haven’t seen you for a long time. You haven’t been joining in on the fun lately. Wanna go to the cyber café later? My treat. I managed to earn a small fortune recently, hehe.”
“Cyber café?” Lin Sheng was just halfway through his sentence.
“Shen Yan, I have two movie tickets here for the Star of Tomorrow, wanna go watch it? It’s starting soon,” a male student exclaimed loudly as he walked in.
The male student looked sharp. His neatly-combed hair and smooth skin gave off the impression of an effeminate man.
While the boy was not looking at Lin Sheng directly, his acute senses told him that the boy was staring at him.
He understood and smiled.
“The two of you go ahead then. I have something to do. Bye.”
Shen Yan frowned as she searched for the words to say, but Lin Sheng had already wiggled his shoulder free and waved at her.
“Go on, have fun.”
“Hey, wait up! Why don’t you come along? It’s just an extra ticket, no? I’ll pay!” Shen Yan said with gusto.
A movie ticket that cost more than ¥10 seemed like nothing based on her tone.
Well, the students there were rather well-to-do anyway. For most people though, ¥10 was worth a few days of their pocket money.
As she said that, she looked at Lin Sheng in anticipation, signaling that she was already being very generous.
“We haven’t had fun together lately. Come on, let’s go. You’ve been disappearing a lot recently, I don’t see much of you at all.”
Lin Sheng was speechless.
He really had no time to entertain children with their movies. He much rather use it to meditate at home.
“I really have something to do, I’ll pass this time. Maybe next time.” He declined once again.
“If he’s not going, I’ll go! Yan Yan’s loaded! Buy us a ticket, yeah!” Two female students overheard their conversation and laughed as they grabbed her from behind.
“Bullsh*t! Both of you won’t even treat me to breakfast. It’s not like you don’t have the money yourself!” Shen Yan grumbled as she tried to break free.
“That’s because we really don’t have money. It’s not like you don’t know that we’re saving up for the sales.”
“So your money should be saved, and mine should be spent on you?”
The girls’ harmless quarrel quickly turned into a cacophony.
Lin Sheng smiled and noticed that no one was paying attention to him any longer. He then grabbed his bag to leave.
On his way out, he rubbed shoulders with the boy who was holding the tickets.
“At least you have some sense.” The boy suddenly sneered. “Stay away from Shen Yan next time, or I’ll kick your a**.”
Lin Sheng was surprised, and he stopped.
He suddenly found it was hilarious.
There was someone who actually liked Shen Yan the loudmouth tomboy, and that someone actually threatened him about it?
He rarely felt so amused as he did right then.
It was not anger, it was genuine amusement.
It was akin to an adult passing by a foulmouthed snail taunting him as it did summersaults!
The reaction of the adult would not be anger.
Rather, it would be amazement.
Look! It was a snail actually pulling off a summersault!
An adult would have such a thought.
And like every adult, Lin Sheng felt the same way.
He blinked and looked at the boy as if he was staring at a monkey.
“The f*ck you’re looking at?!” The angry boy growled.
Lin Sheng suddenly turned his elbow and hit it against the boy’s left rib with stunning precision!
On the surface, it looked like he had just accidentally swiped his elbow against the boy’s uniform, but in reality, it was a brutal hit.
The boy immediately turned pale. He shuddered while he held on to his ribcage, unable to utter a word.
The pain pulsed all over his body from the place he was hit.
Lin Sheng blinked.
“What were you saying? I may have missed it.”
Lin Sheng slammed his elbow into his stomach again.
That bugger immediately trembled; he was about to faint from the pain.
Lin Sheng held his shoulder, and they looked like good friends.
“You look pale, let’s get you to the infirmary.”
Before Shen Yan and the rest noticed, he dragged him out of the classroom and into the gents.
A while later, Lin Sheng walked out with a smile on his face, heading for the stairs.
It was only after a long while that the boy emerged slowly from the gents, clutching his stomach. His forehead was dripping with cold sweat, and his face was absolutely pale.
Lin Sheng had no interest in the love squabbles between students. His attention was fully focused on the club and the dream realm.
Everything else would have to make way.
After he left the school, he quickly hailed a cab and rushed on to get to Rainbow Park nearby.
All of a sudden, the sound of a crash thundered from the neighboring street.
Everyone around was startled as they turned toward the source of the sound.
Faint screams and yelling could be heard from afar.
“A truck has crashed into a car! Call the ambulance!”
“Quick, check if they’re alright!”
Lin Sheng paused for a moment before he got into the taxi.
Just as he closed the door, he popped his head out to take a peek.
The taxi was also about to make a U-turn at the end of the street, and it moved on slowly.
“Rainbow Park, sir.”
“Sure.” The driver peered out at times to have a look at the accident too.
