My Crown Prince Consort Is a Firecracker - Chapter 1804
Chapter 1804 Curiosity
“No matter their identity, one thing is certain.” Qi Xuanxuan clenched her fist gravely. “Qiaoqiao’s enemy is our enemy.”
Everybody nodded with bitter hatred against this common enemy.
Qiao Mu was deeply moved.
Qi Xuanxuan then remarked with a laugh, “Qiaoqiao, when you were bargaining with the mentors just now, I really didn’t understand what kind of riddle you were all playing at.” She had no idea that the little fellow was bribing the mentors with spiritual tea so that they wouldn’t place so many restrictions on any darn competitions to follow.
Frankly speaking, whether it be divine beasts or sacred beasts, they were a part of their abilities!
Why were they prohibited from summoning them during matches? Qi Xuanxuan pouted.
Besides, they wouldn’t rely on their divine beasts to bully their opponents. Wasn’t it usually that they would only summon their beasts if they couldn’t end the match themselves?
The mentors were overthinking it.
Since they had nothing to do for the whole day, everyone just hung out in Qiao Mu’s room to chat over tea.
Therefore, Qiao Mu could only skip this rare chance to take an afternoon nap and listen to them criticize various things about the academy.
Excluding Qi Xuanxuan, the little fatty, and herself, the other students had already spent two to three years at the academy.
Qi Xuanxuan and them learned from Senior Lu Yu’s griping the reasons behind many of the academy’s weird practices.
Such as how the mentors would occasionally squeeze the students for spirit currency in order to cultivate the spiritual medicine on Blazing Vigor Peak.
Reportedly, they spent huge sums to purchase some spiritual medicine nutrient fluid, but ten thousand spirit currency was only enough for two months.
Qiao Mu blinked at this revelation. “What spiritual medicine nutrient fluid?”
“Hell knows what kind of nutrient fluid it is.” Lu Yu couldn’t help dissing, “Don’t get tricked by how the mentors look poor. The academy doesn’t lack money! It’s just that they have to spend more than ten thousand spirit currency every month to cultivate the spiritual medicine on Blazing Vigor Peak.”
Qi Xuanxuan was astonished. “Then when we saw Mentor Zhou on the Thunder Plains.”
“He seemed to have made a long trip especially to buy inexpensive foodstuffs. On the return trip, he was so stingy that he would rather get struck by thunder the whole way through the Thunder Plains than to fork out money to ride the terrestrial whale!” Lu Yu, Hua Tao, and them couldn’t help twitching their mouths at what Qi Xuanxuan had shared.
This was indeed Mentor Zhou’s way of doing things…
“Oh, Mentor Zhou had said back then that he had gone especially to buy food for you all, and that you guys would starve to death if he didn’t make it back in three days’ time.” Qi Xuanxuan looked over at Duanmu Qing and the others. “Is that true?”
“Don’t listen to his bullsh*t.” Hua Tao rolled his eyes grumpily.
Duanmu Qing loathed to even say anything.
This Mentor Zhou’s zaniness was simply unparalleled.
He was probably the most unreliable one of the five spirit specialty mentors!
Qi Xuanxuan was tongue-tied.
The little fatty interjected with a mischievous chuckle, “Mentor Zhou and them are working so hard just for those spiritual medicines on Blazing Vigor Peak? How about we go and secretly take a peek at Blazing Vigor Peak?”
“Do you not want to live?” Hua Tao rolled his eyes at him. “If the mentors were to discover that you went up to Blazing Vigor Peak, I guarantee that you won’t see the light of day tomorrow!”
The little fatty: …
“Are there several hundred spiritual medicines growing on Blazing Vigor Peak?” Qiao Mu was intrigued.
“How is that possible? I heard Mentor Zhou say that it’s like four varieties.”
