Paradise of Demons and Gods – Chapter 41
Chapter 41 Moving In
After finishing his words, Dick directly left.
After Dick had exited, Kaunitz stood up with a bang. He turned his head and glared at Fang Xingjian, giving a loud bellow, “Fang Xingjian, after we complete the first job transition three months from now, do you dare to fight with me? It will not be a private fight but an official battle, which we would need to submit an application for.”
The Royal Academy prohibited private fights but allowed for official battles. Of course, it would not be a life and death battle but only until a victor was decided.
If person A were to kill person B in a battle, then person A would also have his tendons destroyed and his Knight status removed. If one were to purposefully cripple his opponent, then the punishment would be based on the severity of the situation. At the very least, one’s identity as a Knight would be removed, and one would be barred from enrolling into the academy for forever.
After all, this was a national organization, and it would be sufficient to determine the victor in a battle. How could they allow for members to engage in internal killings.
Of course, this was sufficient to Kaunitz. What he wanted was to triumph over the other party before humiliating Fang Xingjian.
While Fang Xingjian did not bother with the other party, he knew that there would not be an end to the troubles if he were to show signs of inferiority now. Thus, he said directly, “Three months?
“How about this, three months from now, I’ll take you on with just one hand.”
“You!” Flashes of fury flickered across Kaunitz’s face as he immediately drew his sword. He wanted to charge over, but he was held back by those around him.
“Kaunitz, stay calm. You are not his match right now.”
“Do you want him to knock you out with one sword swing again?”
These words of advice made Kaunitz so angry that he almost puked blood.
Robert who had wanted to take his leave also gave a cold snort and said to Fang Xingjian, “Brat, don’t you think you’re being too arrogant?”
Fang Xingjian threw him a glance and said, “I haven’t settled the score with you yet from the Prefectural Selection. How about we settle it three months from now?”
“Hahahaha.” Robert could not help but laughed and said, “Brat, do you even know what you’re talking about? Who do you think you’re talking to?
“Or do you think that after three months, you will also have completed the first transition and will have eliminated the gap between us?”
However, since Fang Xingjian felt he had made his point, he no longer wished to engage himself in a battle of words. If he had time for this, he might as well have practiced the Hegemonic Qi Slash of Heavens and Earth a few more times.
Therefore, he turned and said, “Three months from now, the two of you can attack together, so that you won’t waste my time.”
With a bang, Robert landed a fist on the table, which caused the table to cave in and fall apart.
Looking at Fang Xingjian’s back, he said viciously, “B*stard, you’re really courting death…”
Jack and Anthony took a look at Robert and the vicious aristocrats. They laughed bitterly and ran after Fang Xingjian.
Jack of the City Guards Institution ran first to Fang Xingjian’s side and asked, “Why are you so rash?
“Sigh, this is troublesome. The crucial heir of clans like Kaunitz has had his path planned out since his youth based on his constitution, interest, and personality.
“For the sake of his first job transition, he had begun preparatory work since he was young. Therefore, after completing his first transition, his upgraded battle power will have increased greatly.
“Xingjian, while you are talented, how will you be able to surpass his ten or more years of preparation within three months? After you’ve completed the first transition, you’ll need to go through an adjustment period of a few months before you will be able to perfectly display your battle power.”
After listening to his words, Fang Xingjian’s and Anthony’s eyes revealed curiosity in their gazes.
Fang Xingjian asked, “Are you very familiar with job transitions?”
Jack shook his head. “You guys will find out after attending tomorrow’s class. The first period is the job transition planning class. You’ll be able to obtain a complete set of information.”
At the same time Fang Xingjian and the others carried their Knight attires and many materials outside, two ladies were staring in their direction from a windowsill over fifty meters away.
One of them was about fifteen or sixteen years old with a pair of bright and beautiful eyes, and she was emitting a presence of youth and vitality all over.
A middle-aged lady in luxurious clothings was at her side.
The middle-aged lady looked at those three who were over fifty meters away. When her gaze landed on their clothing, she subconsciously furrowed her brows.
Fang Xingjian, needless to say, was even wearing today the clothes he had brought from the fishing village. As for Anthony and Jack, while they were slightly better off, they were still not worth mentioning before an aristocrat’s eyes.
The middle-aged lady subconsciously felt displeasure when she saw the other party’s actions and attire. She turned her head toward her daughter beside her and asked, “Liz, what do you think?”
This middle-aged lady was full of adoration toward her precious daughter. From her daughter’s childhood, she had never let her daughter feel any hint of grief. Her daughter was someone she held dear to her heart. It could be said she feared that her daughter would fly too close to the sun.
If her husband had not spoken with such certainty that Fang Xingjian was an absolutely talented genius and that they should quickly grasp the opportunity, she would definitely not have brought her daughter here.
The husband and father to this pair of mother and daughter was that white-bearded old man who was the first to doubt Fang Xingjian in the third stage of the Prefectural Selection. He was also Kirst Royal Academy’s sword art instructor.
However, while he had told his wife and daughter that Fang Xingjian was very talented and outstanding, Huang Lin had already ordered them to keep their mouths shut in order to protect Fang Xingjian. Therefore, they just did not know the degree of Fang Xingjian’s talent.
After hearing her mother’s question, the young lady pouted her lips and said, “He is very dirty…” After saying this, she grabbed her mother’s arm and swung it repeatedly as she said in a spoiled manner, “Why did father ask me to get close to this guy? Mother, did you see that? His hair is so dirty that they are all sticking together. Do you really want to see me marry this kind of guy?”
The mother furrowed her brows as she looked at Fang Xingjian’s appearance. While she really did not feel happy about this either, she still said, “Your father mentioned that he is a pedigreed horse, a sword talent that may not exist for decades. If he became your husband, you would not need to worry about your life in the future.”
“I don’t want, I don’t want, I don’t want.” The young lady said spitefully, “Brother Hylong is so much better. He is handsome, gentle, and polite. He can even play music and write poetry.”
“Sigh, Hylong is good, but he’s doomed to be stuck at the first transition for life. Do you want to be stuck in Kirst all your life like me?” Her mother shook her head helplessly and said, “And if a person is dirty, he can always clean up…”
After noticing how her daughter was reacting, she sighed and said, “Alright, alright, alright. Let’s wait another three months and see how it goes. We will need to at least see what job he chooses for the first transition before we decide. It’s not as if there weren’t any exceptional talents within history that had made the wrong decision for their first job transition.”
That young lady was still unhappy as she said, “Hmph, this ugly freak won’t be able to get a good job for his first job transition. I can even smell his stench from fifty meters away.”
Fang Xingjian was unaware that he had become the star of someone’s criticism, and he split up from Anthony and Jack after they reached the residential area.
As Knights of the academy, they were each assigned a two storied villa with maids to clean daily. After all, now that they had become Knights, how would they be allowed to waste their time on household chores?
When Fang Xingjian drew closer to the entrance of the villa, he saw three middle-aged women waiting there. They bowed and one of them said, “Lord Fang Xingjian, we’re your exclusive maids.
“I’ll be in charge of cleaning your room daily. Regarding your food, Master Huang Lin has already decided on your behalf. This is your diet plan.”
“Diet plan?” Fang Xingjian received the diet plan from the other party and noticed that his breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, and midnight snack were written on it.
He had arranged for Fang Xingjian to have six meals daily, including ferocious beasts’ essence, medicinal food, herbs, and specially selected vegetables and bread. They all seemed to be customized for Fang Xingjian, and the amount of food in the six meals were all decided after considering Fang Xingjian’s absorption and consumption.
This amount was almost the upper limit of what Fang Xingjian could absorb.
After all, Fang Xingjian was a strong person who trained both internally and externally. Even if he were to eat a large amount of food, it would only take a slight effort for him to chew and for his organs to move, and the food would mostly be digested in an instant.
However, after reading that he would be able to ingest a portion of ferocious beasts’ essence daily, Fang Xingjian’s eyebrows could not help but twitch.
