Leaning against the fence at the balcony of his bedroom, Ye Cang sighed as he called Ren Long. “Hey, bald man. I’ve three long-lost relatives from my hometown faraway. There are some problems with their identities so can you fake their profiles? Here is the info…”
“What the f*ck! How can your hometown be in an unmarked place on China’s map?! Are all the people there fake?! Besides, look at the names! Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and Sun Quan! Can’t you have a better fake name?!” Ren Long complained.
“That’s none of your business! You owe me so many favors and so much money! Quickly get this done!”
“I admit that I owe you favors. But money?! Hell no! Don’t you think I don’t know that you secretly tricked quite an amount of money from numerous members of Dragon Group!”
“Those are tuition fees! Education fund! They learn as they make mistakes! It’s the way things are like…”
“Beep. Beep. Beep.” The tone signified that Ren Long had hung up on him. Ye Cang opened the white cloth to reveal the crystal white Holy Lance. I think it has a new name called the Holy Blessing. He gradually reached out his hand to press his spine behind his neck. With a push, he pulled it out. Before his wound recovered, he put the lance into his body and it diffused into his bone quickly. The new reborn spine wrapped the lance like a scabbard. He could feel the Blood of Holy Demon inside him and the Seven Colored Crystal Seeds seemed to be growing. Just what is this? It is constantly sucking my reproduced blood and energy but it pays back with a greater amount. It looks like an energy source that increases the stats. Yet, he did not bother much and swung the bloody spine he pulled out around. “I should use this to make some flying knives for Lele to play. It might be useful for defending himself too…”
The next day.
Everyone was staring at the new guests with much curiosity as they were having breakfast. Even ThornyRose came over to eat in the early morning. Seeing the three of them, she did not bother much and sat down as Ye Cang would introduce them anyways.
“*Cough* *Cough* Let me introduce them to everyone. These three are my long-lost cousins. There was a natural disaster at their place so they came over to seek shelter… So, say hi to everyone,” Ye Cang used the same excuse.
“.....” Everyone was speechless, especially Fang Ci was doubting Ye Cang since he was also a ‘long-lost cousin’ of his.
“I’m Liu Bei.” Liu Bei who was wearing a bathrobe received a bowl of porridge and a bun.
“Cao Cao.” Cao Cao took a bow for himself too.
“Don’t tell me your name is Sun Quan.” ThornyRose stared at Sun Quan.
“My name is indeed Sun Quan,” Sun Quan laughed.
ThornyRose could not help it but laughed out loud as she pointed at Ye Cang. “Hahaha. Hahaha. Liu Bei. Cao Cao. Sun Quan. The names are so funny. They are indeed your relatives. Cousins, I welcome y’all. Hahaha…”
“Sister Rose, stop laughing.” Wu Na knew that their names were a little weird.
SpyingBlade, Fang Ci, Little Ye Tian, ThornyRose and the others introduced themselves too.
“Little Tian, please help me to fill them in with the general knowledge we learnt in college.” Ye Cang handed the job to Little Ye Tian and turned around to talk to the three of them. “If you guys have anything that you don’t understand, ask her.”
“Little Tian and I will bring your cousins to get some new clothes later. Your size doesn't fit them. It looks too weird on them. ” While eating her porridge, ThornyRose laughed as she recalled their names. She turned around to see Lin Le lying on the sofa and using some kind of psychokinesis or invisible hand or claws to grab a bun and put it in his mouth. The invisible hands even helped him to wipe his mouth.
Meanwhile, with her incredible wisdom which had surpassed an ordinary man's limit, Little Ye Tian saw there was a blonde spirit connected to Lin Le as if she was his maid.
Zhang Zhengxiong patted Frozen Cloud's shoulder and said, "I'll never say that you're ugly anymore."
"......" Frozen Cloud pinched his thigh with a certain amount of force.
After breakfast, ThornyRose brought along Little Ye Tian who was talking about the school to Liu Bei, Cao Cao and Sun Quan to Heavenly Dragon Shopping Mall. When the three of them chose the clothes they like, ThornyRose was shocked. Liu Bei somehow chose a pink bathrobe and on the bathrobe, there was a peony flower. He also picked a pair of geta sandals and middle-parting hair. Even though his clothes were simple, he gave people a perception of a lazy and graceful person.
As for Cao Cao, he picked a fleeced leopard-skin jacket over a button-up shirt topped with a vest. He had bangs and a short ponytail and his mouth was holding a cigar. He looked exactly like a gang leader, radiating a dangerous aura with eyes filled with confidence. Meanwhile, Sun Quan got himself a feathered vest, a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. What was surprising was that only Sun Quan was the one willing to have his long purple hair cut short. They roughly heard that he mumbled something about not needing to carry his father's and brother's responsibilities. Though dressed casually, his unique aura could still be felt by Thorny Rose.
What made Thorny Rose feel weird was that they still held on to their weapons. Do they know what century they are in? Who the heck would still bring weapons along wherever they go? Even though there weren't any rules about banning blades, bringing along metallic blades was something rare.
The three of them roughly knew the rules of the school and the society. Since they had joined the Battle of Holy Spirit many times, they were experienced enough to have witnessed the changes happening in the world. From the Middle Ages to the Modern Era, they were well aware of the technologies. With Little Ye Tian's teachings, they had known how to use the virtual chips for daily purposes. Upon returning to the house, they started talking about finding jobs. Ye Cang offered to help but got rejected. Staring at the three of them standing at the balcony, Ye Cang thought. Well, I've settled their identities but their educational background is something difficult…
Lin Hai's Career/Job Seeking Market.
Liu Bei was rejected by many employers. His bullshitting skills had no use at all and he was being shoo-ed away when employers found that he had not received any education before. Saying that he was Emperor was not much of a benefit as well. Sadly, he took out a cigarette from his pocket and looked around with his arms crossed before coincidentally seeing Cao Cao and Sun Quan who looked as disappointed as well. "Did you guys find a job?"
"My self-esteem has been badly hurt. I went to apply for the position of a manager of a street community and I was kicked out. If it wasn't that I've been tired of fighting since long ago, I would be sending him to hell already." Cao Cao lit his cigar.
"Zhongmou, what did you apply for?"
"A night club's fighter...but they said that I must at least be a first-year university drop-out. And I have to look at least 45% alike with a dinosaur that has a scar…" Sun Quan also lit his cigarette.
The three of them saw a bunch of candidates fighting for one normal editor position. They were all heavily injured and sirens from ambulances were heard. It’s so competitive. Did we just underestimate the jobs?
The three of them looked at each other and were determined to continue to look for jobs. We can't be that picky anymore… However, they kept getting rejected due to their educational background. Life was indeed different and difficult.
