“Mo Fan, I have a feeling Lily knows something about it. Didn’t she say there are foreign merchants who visit their village? These foreign merchants might be a cover Mr. Lin from Crete was using. You should find a chance to ask her more about it,” Mu Bai said.
“Mm, I’m going to help her with the Awakening, too. Let me see if I can get her to tell us more information,” Mo Fan nodded.
“Let’s split up into three groups, then. Mu Bai, you will go after the aloe vera that was harvested. I’ll keep an eye on the villagers in the village that plants coral, and the students who destroyed the wet fields with Advanced Spells. As for Mo Fan, hehe, you can have some fun with that ugly chick, since it was you who promised to help her,” Zhao Manyan chuckled.
They were following three leads at once. They would eventually learn something if they were looking in the right direction!
Mo Fan was a man of his word.
The Aorus Sacred Institute did not have a branch of the Magic Association. The weakest student in the school was already at the Intermediate Level, so the school had no need for Awakening Stones of the Basic Level or the Intermediate Level.
The Awakening Stones were kept under strict care. Selling Awakening Stones privately was as serious as counterfeiting money. It was unlikely to find an Awakening Stone on the market.
“Can’t you just give me an Awakening Stone and let me Awaken my magic in the village? Why must I go to another city with you?” Lily seemed nervous. It did not feel right to follow a stranger to another city!
“Apas, come over here,” Mo Fan said.
Apas yawned. She was gorgeous even when she was acting lazy. Lily stared at her for a long time. She could not believe such a beautiful young lady existed in the world. Her features were so flawless she could not even feel jealous of her.
Lily looked at herself. Only the tiny mole under her eyes was a sign of good fortune. The rest of her face and body were roughly crafted.
“She’s my servant girl. She’s not even my lover, so don’t you worry about me having a fetish toward young girls. Even if I do, I’ll prey on her instead of you, do you understand?” Mo Fan said calmly.
Coincidentally, Apas had reached the Intermediate Level, meaning that she was ready for her second Awakening. She had Awakened the Plant Element as her first Element. Mo Fan had no idea what level her Plant Element was at now, nor did he know what Element she would Awaken as her second Element.
Apas rolled her eyes at Mo Fan. Who the heck wants to be your lover? What a shameless man!
“Apas, do you have multiple personality disorder or something? Why do you always look at me with disdain, yet you keep hugging my arm?” Mo Fan pointed out.
Apas enjoyed disguising herself as an approachable little girl who kept calling Mo Fan big brother.
“One day, if you can’t hold back anymore, I’ll eat you!” Apas smiled.
“Apas, enough with your wild imagination. I’ve seen a lot of beautiful girls. You will never seduce me!” Mo Fan declared.
Lily could not hear what the two were saying. However, she suddenly felt like a stormy cloud was looming over her head even when the sky was sunny and clear. How unfair was this world? If she had Apas’ appearance and physique, she could get whatever she wanted, even if she did not become a Mage!
They arrived at Norzak City, the capital of the new federal union. The Norzak Magic Association was quite popular in South America.
The students of the Aorus Sacred Institute enjoyed visiting Norzak City. The Aorus Sacred Institute was still a school, after all. It lacked the energy of society.
Norzak City was extremely lively due to the recent reforms. Buildings were being demolished and reconstructed. Both the officials and workforce were undergoing huge changes.
“Lily, does your village only plant succulents?” Mo Fan asked.
Lily was a talkative girl. She would jabber on and on whenever Mo Fan talked to her.
“What do you want to know?” Lily was not stupid at all. She knew Mo Fan was on to something.
“We noticed something strange in your village, so we are curious to find out the answer from you. Have you heard of poppies?” Mo Fan cut straight to the topic since he knew there was no point in hiding it.
Lily looked up and stared at Mo Fan.
Mo Fan could not tell what she was thinking through her eyes, but Apas was able to read her mind. She told Mo Fan Lily’s emotions were fluctuating. He was on the right track!
“Lily, I believe you are aware that the people of your village are involved in something fishy. The reason why we went to your village is because we have some reliable evidence on our hands,” Mo Fan continued to pressuring.
“I don’t know what you are talking about. You lied to me and tricked me to come here. You don’t want to help with my Awakening!” Lily yelled.
“I never lied to you. I wasn’t suspicious when we first arrived at your village, but who do you think we are? We are the most reputable lecturers in the world. We can tell what your village is planting just by smelling the air. These stairs will lead us to the Magic Association, and you will be registered under my name. I have to make sure you did not do anything against the rules. Otherwise, how can I make sure you won’t do bad things after you become a Mage?” Mo Fan said.
“I never wanted to stay in that village. I have no idea what they are up to!” Lily denied.
“She’s lying,” Apas informed Mo Fan.
Mo Fan stopped interrogating Lily after seeing her reaction. It was unlikely she was going to tell him the truth. That being said, there was indeed something fishy about the village. Their instincts were on point!
“You think I’ll go astray because you find me annoying, yet do you have any idea how many evil deeds the well-dressed students in the Aorus Sacred Institute have committed?” Lily continued scathingly.
“I didn’t mean that. Otherwise, why would I bring you here?” Mo Fan replied calmly.
“How would I know? Maybe you just find me pitiful. Maybe you enjoy the feeling of being able to decide a person’s fate!” Lily sniffed.
“If you wallowed in the mire with the villagers, you could easily live a luxurious life, just like the students in the Aorus Sacred Institute. But you chose to work at the school, despite being bullied by your seniors, instead! It’s clear that you know what kind of people the villagers are.
“The entrance of the Magic Association is right ahead. I can’t guarantee you will be a good person after stepping through the door, but I’m very sure you will become scum if you go back to the village and collude with the villagers there. You are the one who will choose your own destiny. Only you can decide your own fate.”
