Chapter 276.1 - Little Emily's Grown Up
"Ah. I thought it was someone I knew," replied Laura with a smile. "Fellow student, where have your manners gone to?"
This time, Sharmie had wanted to find Wang Zhong to have some fun after alighting from the armored train. Finding out from Milami that Wang Zhong was in the Prodigy Society, she had energetically rushed over. In the end, however, something that was going to be quite interesting and happy for her turned into a situation in which she saw Wang Zhong and a voluptuous beauty chatting extremely happily. She took a second look. Isn't that big chest milk cow that beast woman, Laura?
Unrelated to Wang Zhong, she had a feeling upon seeing Laura of being incompatible like fire and water. Sharmie could never forget the words "big chest no brains" that had made her spew fire in anger. In the entire world, only Laura would dare to use such words to describe her.
"Manners are used towards people," replied Sharmie with a smile. "What use are they to a wild animal? Beast woman?"
"Ha ha. You can't even differentiate between humans and beasts." Laura laughed while glancing at the increasingly voluptuous chest in front of her. "Having not seen you for some time, I see your intelligence still hasn't increased."
Looking at her chest before saying that her intelligence was a problem, wasn't this hinting about those forbidden words?!
Hearing this, Sharmie's beautiful eyes twitched as a ball of flames began to dance in her palm. "Interesting! Before I came today, I was worried that I'd be bored. From the looks of it, I won't be bored anymore!"
Without caring in the slightest, Laura stood up and replied, "The feeling's mutual!"
Looking at the flames burning in their eyes, Wang Zhong decided that a disaster will occur if this continued. There was no one in all of the academies in the Federation that didn't know about the conflict between Sharmie and Laura. This... it's best to slip away...
For the first time, Wang Zhong used the Ghostly Steps for such a matter which caused him to blush. After he left the area, he received some news about Emily. Ever since coming back from the group training, she had been abnormally quiet. He decided that he should go talk to her.
Emily had ordered a cappuccino and was currently lost in thought, biting the cup. She didn't even realize that Wang Zhong had walked in front of her.
Something is up.
With a grin, Wang Zhong tapped her head and asked, "Who made our Emily unhappy?"
"Big bro Wang Zhong, don't touch other people's head," replied Emily in an amused and happy fashion. "I won't grow taller like that, you know!"
"How's that possible?" asked Wang Zhong before ordering a cup of coffee. "Our Emily will definitely grow up to become a great beauty in the future. Long legs, 1.7m tall. That suitable."
"Big bro Wang Zhong likes ladies with long legs?"
"Cough Cough... This, every man would like."
Hearing this, Emily laughed, faint coffee stains still on her lip. "In fact, I'm already grown up. Especially after going to Copperfield this time... big bro Wang zhong, am I really weak?"
"How's that possible? Don't forget that you're a genius with a Soul Power growth rate of 4.7. You still have your Fire Special Ability that people envy," replied Wang Zhong with a smile. "As of now, you're already very awesome. In the future, you'll be even more formidable."
"But I don't feel awesome at all." Emily bit her lip. "I can't even defeat the third assassin of Saxon, and I even needed everyone to come and help me."
"Hush. They're the third best powerhouse in the Eastern Area after all. Besides, Tamil is a third year veteran while you still haven't even graduated from your first year. Don't worry too much about it."
"There's no need to console me, big bro Wang Zhong. Grai's also a first year but he's really strong. Apart from him, Barran's improving much faster than me. During combat, Barran can contribute a lot, however, I feel more and more that I'm pulling everyone down."
He felt that Emily was now extremely serious, and wasn't whining or blaming herself. She already seemed to have some kind of understanding.
Seeing this, a faint smile appeared on Wang Zhong's face as he looked at her.
Was Emily weak? That depended on the angle you looked at it from.
From the perspective of a first year freshman, Emily was already very strong. Within any academy, she would be considered the most outstanding freshman or a powerful contender for that position. Not even half a year after enrolment, she was already able to finish off third year assassin Colby by relying purely on her strength. The current Emily was also completely different from the time when she had defeated Colby.
Despite this, she wanted to use Grai as a benchmark, or she wanted to use the perspective of those terrifyingly powerful enemies that the Tianjing squadron would have to face in the CHF.
For that, her strength wasn't enough. It was far, far from enough.
Let's not talk about the terrifying existences on the same rank as divian. People on Paul's level would be able to easily annihilate her. Even the third ranked assassin of Saxon, Tamil, was able to suppress and beat her. With her current strength level, she would definitely pull the squad down.
"I don't want to pull everyone down, I really don't." Emily raised her head to look at Wang Zhong, her eyes brimming with seriousness. "Big bro Wang Zhong, I've learnt a lot in this half year period, especially when we went to Copperfield. I've already applied for leave of absence with Headmaster Greene. I'm heading home this afternoon!"
"Today? Heading home?"
"Yes! After all, I'm Emily Assassin!" For some unknown reason, Emily finally realized the weight behind her family name at this very instant, understanding the words that her elders had once told her.
"Naturally," said Wang Zhong with a smile. "I believe that you'll definitely become our squad's, even the entire Eastern Area's most outstanding assassin!"
"Big bro Wang Zhong, you really believe that? Or are you just consoling me?"
"Of course I really believe that."
"Okay!" Suddenly, Emily stood up and walked over to Wang Zhong. "Let's make a promise, okay?"
"Big bro Wang Zhong, first you must close your eyes!"
"Ah?" Wang Zhong was stunned.
"Hurry up! How can a man be so wishy washy?" Emily bit her lip.
Helplessly, Wang Zhong closed his eyes before feeling moist, soft lips giving him a kiss on his right cheek.
Feeling startled, Wang Zhong opened his eyes only to see Emily already disappearing in a cloud of smoke as she ran out of the coffee shop, her bell-like laughter fluttering over from the distance. "Our promise is made! If I really achieve that, I'll give you a kiss for each side!"
Hearing that, Wang Zhong smiled and shook his head. That girl... has grown up.
Finally, it was time for Ma Dong's final battle. All the preparation from the past two or three months led up to this moment of victory or defeat. Even with his enormous heart and guts, Ma Dong was still slightly nervous. He felt that the wind today was extremely cold, causing an uncontrollable shiver to shake through his body.
Milami was wearing a long white gown as she stood by his side, looking cute and helpless.
Their relationship had already been made public half a month ago. Milami's parents were quite satisfied with Ma Dong, with both sides being in similar situations. Truthfully, Milami's status within her family wasn't too good. Naturally, their families would still close one eye to it as long as both parties were in love with each other.
This time, Milami played an important role in inviting Sharmie over. She knew that this was the most pivotal battle for Ma Dong. If he lost, it would cast a shadow over the relationship between them. She was extremely clear on the entire process, as Ma Dong didn't hide anything from her. In the past, she used to feel that Ma Dong wasn't a very honorable or decent person, however, this time she felt that Ma Dong had given her a completely new image from before. Males would usually act sloppy in normal times, yet in critical moments , they definitely had the guts and courage to do whatever was necessary.
