Chapter 242: Boss Feng, Are You Taking on Followers?
After testing, Chuling was shown to be a Mid-stage Spiritualist. Since everyone called her ‘senior,’ naturally, she was going to become a student at Blue Flame Academy.
After the test, Feng Tianlan and the rest had barely taken two steps when the other students surrounded them. “Boss!” One after another started calling her ‘boss.’
Feng Tianlan frowned and said, “What are you guys trying to do?”
“Boss, bring us along. The three of you are fragile damsels, so you need some bodyguards.”
“Oh please. Senior Chuling is always by Boss’ side. She’s even more advanced in skill than you, so who needs you as bodyguards?”
“I don’t care. As long as I get to hang around Boss, I don’t mind being a follower.”
“What, you don’t mind being a follower? Boss, are you still taking on any more followers?”
“You guys are the sons of court officials, and you don’t mind being followers? What does that leave me with? I’ll be a parasite, then.”
Feng Tianlan was speechless as she looked at the crowd surrounding her. She had a pretty good impression of the ones who hadn’t joined the crowd in jeering at her when she was still a good-for-nothing. That alone made her consider them.
“Why do you want to follow me? Because I gave you a pill?” Feng Tianlan raised an eyebrow.
“I just feel that Boss is powerful and domineering, and that makes me want to follow you.”
“I feel that Boss is very different from what I heard about her before, so I want to follow her.”
“They want to follow you, so I want to follow you too.”
Everyone had their own way of explaining their actions, their rationale. Some wanted to follow her because they saw how many pills she had and how generous she was. They thought that they would probably get a few pills if they became her followers. Others were eyeing the alchemist behind her and hoped to get him on their side.
But some weren’t considering any of this. They were here because she’d said that anything was worth it for the people who were on her team!
This phrase alone was enough to make them want to follow her with all their hearts because they could hear how loyal she was to her teammates.
“I’m not your ‘Boss.'” Feng Tianlan smiled faintly and didn’t take anything they said to heart. It was hard to tell how many of these so-called followers were sincere and how many were secretly hiding their greed.
Tu Xiupei was angered when she saw everyone crowded around Feng Tianlan. Her eyes reddened, and her teeth chattered from anger. These were the people she could have used to her own benefit. But now…
Feng Tianlan deserved to die!
Feng Tianlan was always snatching away the things that belonged to her, so she wasn’t going to let Feng Tianlan off!
Si Mobai looked sourly at the considerable group of men following Feng Tianlan. He could see the impressive aura surrounding her and wanted to hide her away so that he would be the only one who could see this aura. But if he hid her away, then she wouldn’t have this aura anymore.
Of course, while many started hankering after Feng Tianlan, there were also many who began hating her. For instance, the ladies who watched as the men they admired running after Feng Tianlan.
After stepping out of the school gate, Feng Tianlan saw Si Rong riding his horse over. Feng Tianlan remembered what Yunzhu had told her about how he had been bashed up so severely. His head had swelled like a pig’s, and she couldn’t help but steal a glance to see if his face was still puffy.
“Lan…” Si Rong only got one word out. He could already feel pain surge through his body. He quickly switched to calling her, “Tianlan.”
He could still hear that man’s warning voice. He had warned Si Rong not to call Feng Tianlan ‘Lan’er.’ Otherwise, he would rip Si Rong’s tongue out!
Just thinking about that icy voice from the depths of hell made him shudder and chill to the bone.
“Third Prince,” Feng Tianlan calmly replied. She turned to look at Tu Xiupei, who had just come down the mountain.
Si Rong looked up at Tu Xiupei and told Feng Tianlan, “Don’t worry. I still remember.” Then he started making his way toward Tu Xiupei.
