“I think it’s a great idea too,” Mo Fan was actually quite surprised. He initially thought Mui Nujiao would choose the same path as Mu Ningxue, taking on the role of managing her clan and helping it grow, yet she decided to focus on education instead…
Didn’t he graduate from a magic school!?
There were many schools in the country. If the education system continued to improve, if there were more resources available, and if they could focus more on discovering new talents, it would help the ones with great talents stand out more. Having an additional Forbidden Mage was game-changing for an entire country. Mui Nujiao would have the chance to keep improving her cultivation while helping other Mages with great potential to grow, too. They were most likely people with greater talents and more hardworking than them waiting to be discovered. Even one or two of them might be crucial in this era of turmoil.
The risen sea level had made the sea monsters the greatest threat to the survival of mankind. They would have to compromise their lands and territories for a long time, but if more powerful Mages kept joining them, they might be able to hold on until the storm finally calmed down. As for the natural disasters that the next generation would be facing, there would be new heroes rising when the time came. All they had to do was to protect the next generation. No matter how fierce the storm was, no matter how deadly the invasion of demon creatures were, they had to provide a safe environment for the young ones to grow at all costs, until the feathers of their wings were fully grown…
There were a lot of calamities in history that were referred to as apocalypses, yet the human race had still managed to survive until now!
As long as they did not go extinct, the day that the Headquarters Cities would be relieved of their roles would eventually come. They would be able to live in any land as they pleased. The entire world would be included in the safe zone!
“What’s wrong?” Mui Nujiao looked at Mo Fan. She was unsure what Mo Fan was thinking about.
Mo Fan had only given a brief response, but did not share any of his opinions. Mui Nujiao was feeling a little uneasy. She was eager to hear what Mo Fan had to say, and would seriously consider his opinions.
“Nothing, it just reminded me of something. The truth is, I actually graduated from a magic school. I’m really grateful for the people who invested in Tian Lan Magic High. Learning magic is no longer just a privilege for disciples of the renowned clans. Even a povvo like me had a chance to become a Mage!. Even though I have no idea who the people that invested in Tian Lan Magic High were, I do believe many people will be grateful for you just as I am. They might not know who you are, but you will always be considered their benefactor,” Mo Fan said sincerely.
Tian Lan Magic High had been a public school. There were quite a number of public schools across the country, but many of them were abandoned during the act of establishing the Headquarters Cities. They could live with less infrastructure, but they could not afford to have fewer schools. Mui Nujiao’s decision made Mo Fan realize that the people that could change the world were not Mages like him, who only focused on improving their own cultivation. No matter how outstanding their cultivation was, they would still find themselves helpless against natural disasters, even if they had become a Forbidden Mage! But the path that Mui Nujiao chose was different… Perhaps no one would know who she was, yet the things she did would change a lot of things!
“Is that so? I’m very happy if you really mean that. The things that I’ve done at school over the years have only earned some reputation for my clan, but I didn’t really think they were meaningful. It was only after became a mentor of the graduates with you that I realized a door was opening for me, and the world behind it is quite appealing to me, too!” Mui Nujiao seemed overjoyed. She was smiling broadly too, revealing her perfect white teeth. It was rare to see Mui Nujiao smiling like that. Normally, she would have high hopes in herself, knowing what her clan was asking from her.
“So it turns out that I’m actually the one that pointed you in the right direction. Dean Mui, do remember to mention my name when you’re being interviewed in the future, so I may bask in the light too!” Mo Fan burst out laughing.
“Seriously? Your reputation has already exceeded some of the Councilmen. I think I might even need to borrow your identity as the strongest participant in the World College Tournament instead. You will be a great role model for the students,” Mui Nujiao said.
“My pleasure!” Mo Fan said.
Mo Fan stared at Mui Nujiao. He realized how charming her smile was when she was talking about her plans. She was displaying a unique charm he had never seen before. Even the pleasant scent she had was a lot more alluring.
A person would become a lot more attractive when their eyes were brimming with a glow that belonged only to them. In the past, Mui Nujiao had been strictly following rules and the perfect model that she had imagined herself to be, based on the clan’s hopes for her. However, she had found her destiny, her own role. She had figured out her own strengths and flaws. She was still obeying her clan, while fulfilling the call of her destiny…
“Thank you,” Mui Nujiao said after a slight hesitation.
“What for? I didn’t do anything,” Mo Fan raised his brows.
“Your approval is the best support I could ask for,” Mui Nujiao said firmly.
“It seems like there are people that aren’t fond of your decision?” Mo Fan asked slowly.
“There always will be, but now that I’ve made up my mind, I’ll try my best to convince them,” Mui Nujiao replied.
“So you’re still going to move away? If this is the path you’ve chosen, you will be coming to Pearl Institute quite often. It’s the best place to start. Otherwise, the reputation you’ve built in Pearl Institute is going to be wasted,” Mo Fan told her.
“Actually, I’m already inspecting some other units,” Mui Nujiao said softly.
“Then just stay here instead, why make it a hassle for yourself? Who cares what the others say? You just need to focus on your work. You might actually make a difference to the current situation we are in… the others can just gossip as they please!”
Mo Fan roughly understood why Mui Nujiao was thinking of moving away. Screw it, they were only in their twenties! Most people were already having abortions and messed-up affairs at their age. He had been contributing so much to the country, so what if he was being selfish and shameless for once!? It was not like he was going around stealing their rice or flirting with their wives!
“Mm…” Mui Nujiao answered. She lifted her gaze and looked at Mo Fan’s cup. She asked, “You want some more?”
“Sure, it definitely feels more comfortable to be lying at home!” Mo Fan slouched in the couch and let out a relieved sigh.
Mui Nujiao still had no idea what Mo Fan had been through recently, but the fact that the Chairman had come to visit him in person and their conversation clearly indicated that Mo Fan had done something very impressive.
Mui Nujiao did not ask; Mo Fan would tell her if he felt like it. Why would she bother making him recall the tough times while he was enjoying himself some peaceful moments?
However, Mui Nujiao noticed that Mo Fan’s temperament had changed significantly, something that she had only felt from people like Chairman Shao Zheng…
