392 A Disciplined Life
Three days passed by in a blink of an eye. Lin Huang lived with utmost discipline for the past three days. Every morning, he would wake up at 6:30 a.m and would finish washing up before he had his breakfast past seven in the morning before he headed to the library. He would stay in the library until six in the evening and took snacks as his lunch. After dinner, he would train with his sword in the training room at around 6:30 p.m. until 12 midnight. Then, he would head back to the dorm, wash up and sleep.
He would sleep for six hours while other activities like eating, washing up and his journey on the road would add up to an hour. He spent his remaining 17 hours studying and training. Lin Huang wanted to cut down his sleeping time to three hours and sleep on the training room's floor. There was a small bathroom in the training room that allowed him to shower. If he did that, he could save some time as he did not need to return to the dorm so he could increase the time he could study and learn to 20 hours. With his physique now, three hours sleep per day would be enough for him since he would only have to stay this way for two months. However, the thought that Lin Xin would disagree with such a lifestyle made him give this idea up.
Besides learning and training, the other matters went on as usual. The Hunter Forum and the black market had come back with some news about the double mutated, sword-type monster. Yang Ling had unlocked the three Emperor's Heart Rings of the immortal-level hunter a while back and extracted all the items. Lin Huang put them away in his own ring, including the dracaena that he had always wanted. However, he did not want to unseal Charcoal at the moment as he knew that its unsealing would create a scene. The unsealing had to be done in an isolated area where the Starlight Beasts were. He did not have time to leave yet so he decided to unseal Lancelot and Charcoal once and for all once he obtained sufficient information about the double mutated sword-type monster.
During the past few days, fatty had been texting Lin Huang on the progress between him and the cute girl, Zhang Mengmeng. She seemed to really like fatty as they had already gone on a date; eating, shopping and watching a performance at the music theatre. The girl did not reject any of his advances at all. On the fourth day, when Lin Huang was having his breakfast, he received a text from fatty that said, "I want to confess to her!"
Lin Huang could not help himself but laugh. Fatty was such a straightforward person. Perhaps that was the reason why the girl liked him. However, he thought it was too fast for fatty to confess, especiall since the both of them had just spent three days together but Lin Huang did not stop him anyway.
People say that women who are in love had zero intelligence. In reality, men would see their IQ drop to negative when they were in love. Lin Huang chose not to stop fatty as he knew that fatty would not listen to him. Another reason was because Lin Huang knew Zhang Mengmeng had a good background and it might not be a bad thing if fatty was rejected. It was always better to end the relationship early than dragging it on if both parties were not suitable for one another. As time went on, the emotions invested would increase and he would become even sadder if he was rejected. However, if Zhang Meng Meng really had zero intelligence and agreed to be with him, that would be the best thing that ever happened to fatty.
Lin Huang thought about it and replied.
"You do whatever you want, just don't cry to me if you're rejected."
"Can't you just say something nice to me for once?!" Fatty texted him three angry emojis at the back.
"Oh, I can't wait to see a baby from the both of you."
"…" Fatty was speechless.
After breakfast, Lin Huang started his busy day. He had already finished reading all the programmes that the Martial Hunter College had and even came out with a basic teaching plan. His programme was quite relaxed as he would only need to teach one class for one period each week. However, the class periods here were quite different from the ones on earth as one period here could stretch as long as three hours. The students at the Martial Hunter College would only need to attend two periods each day. One was from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. while the other would be from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The three hours classes would be broken down to an hour of lecture and two hours of training. Lin Huang arranged his classes the same way. Once he finished the outline of his teaching programme, he went on to gather more materials and documents to bulk up the contents of his lesson.
It was past 10 at night and Lin Huang's Emperor's Heart Ring vibrated as he was training in the training room. It was fatty. He then put away his sword and picked up the call.
"What, were you rejected? Are you here to cry to me?" Lin Huang teased.
"Heh, you underestimated my charm." Fatty was proud, he soon noticed that Lin Huang was dripping with sweat.
"What're you up to? You look like you just got out of the water."
"Training with my sword." Lin Huang waved the gold-level sword in his hand to fatty.
"Why are you training so late? What have you been doing during the day?" Fatty was puzzled.
"I was reading in the library." Lin Huang did not bother to explain too much to him.
"Don't change the topic! Tell me about you! So... Has the girl has agreed to date you?"
"Of course! When I work my wonders, the world will tremble!" Fatty looked proud of himself.
"That's because you're fat." Lin Huang teased again.
"You won't have any friends if you continue to talk like that!"
"I wasn't the one who asked you to beat around the bush." Lin Huang wanted to know what the girl saw in him.
"Alright so after dinner, we were shopping near the Blue Water Lake. As we were walking on Lover's Bridge, we saw many couples dating there so I decided to confess to her there and then. I told her that I liked her and asked her to be my girlfriend. She was stunned at first but soon she agreed."
"Are you sure she wasn't saying something else?" Lin Huang smirked.
"You're just being jealous." Fatty shot back.
"Alright, I won't mess around. Please cherish her." Lin Huang did not tell him that Zhang Mengmeng might be from royalty.
"I don't need your reminder, she's my first love!" Fatty looked proud.
"Oh, by the way, I have told Mengmeng about traveling to the White Capital and she agreed to come along with me. She also said that she'd borrow a dimensional relic from her family during the coming few days and come straight to the White Capital so we won't need to spend too much time on the road. We haven't gotten the exact time and date yet but it'll probably be two days later. I'll contact you again when we're here. I remember you telling me that you'd pay for the trip if we visit you together…"
"Don't worry. I've given my word so I won't let the both of you pay." Lin Huang was being generous.
"Let me know before you come, I'll book a hotel for the both of you."
"Yay!" Fatty then hung up the phone.
"I can't believe fatty really got the girl…" Lin Huang smiled and shook his head.
He did not think the relationship would happen since the very beginning. The girl was like a genius since she was already a silver-level at 16. Besides, her family was rich. Fatty, on the other hand, was not gifted in his cultivation and his background was nothing concrete. The gap between the both of them were too big…
