Ethan didn't care about the fight he just had. Even though he knew that the Punishment Department will find trouble with him, he wasn't bothered with it too much.
Ethan knew that his system could formulate plans based on situation. It can even give multiple solutions for a particular mess he is involved. He was actually shocked with the System's wisdom.
When he asked for the System's help against Derek, the System has given him multiple different plans for different scenarios. He trusted that if he fell in any issue due to interference from the Punishment Department, then the System will definitely find an escape route for him. So he was at a little ease.
Ethan used the [Disguise Mask] and changed his appearance. He read many novels where MC is so talented where he is good at both combat and side professions. And in most of the novels, MC's always changes both their names and appearances to hide this fact for various reasons.
Ethan was in almost similar situation. He knew that Derek won't let his humiliation slide just like that. So he decided to follow the same trend as all those MC's used to follow and disguise his appearance.
He knew that this time his enemy is not just Derek. If his opponent is Derek alone, then he was not at all afraid of anything. This time the one who will cause trouble for him is actually the entire Punishment Department. So he had to be cautious. Even though he knew that there is a possibility for Young Master Robin to come to his rescue, the possibility is very slim.
Even though he had good impression for Young Master Robin, their relation is even less than close. They only had one fateful meeting. And they had mutual benefits and their relation ended there. There is no way he would rescue him. So he is all on his own.
As of now, he changed his appearance to that of a teenager with around 16 years of age. With that appearance, he walked for around 30 minutes. After asking directions for his destination, he finally reached it after a little trouble in finding it.
There was a majestic building in front of him. This building was huge. It has around 20 floors. There was a board with majestic words written on it. Ethan read those words on the board and knew that he had finally reached his destination.
THE UNION-PHOENIX FEATHER CITY BRANCH!!!
Ethan couldn't help but sigh. After a long journey, he finally reached the place he wanted to. This is the place where he will start his Professional career. This is the place where he will make wealth for his future cultivation development. With hope, he entered the building.
Ethan entered the building. He was truly speechless when he saw the amount of people entering or exiting the building. He looked here and there and found that this building was just one of the many buildings in the vicinity.
Back on earth, the amount of place occupied by a city was nothing compared to the Phoenix Feather City. Ethan could make an estimation based on his knowledge from both the world he was in that, this city is twice bigger than the entire New Zealand!
He couldn't help but curse. What kind of logic is this? How could a city in the cultivation world be twice bigger than an entire country from earth?
He was clueless about the affairs conducted by the Union. All the knowledge he had regarding The Union was from the encyclopaedia he read. At the same time, all the information he had regarding the Union very little. Like the structure of the Union and their duties.
There are multiple buildings with almost similar looking floors. There are boards with each block names and their numbers with the direction. Ethan had to find the Administration Block for registration and other paperwork purpose.
Ethan didn't care about the numerous buildings in front of his eyes. He was not here to join the Union. He is here to rent their resources and make as much contribution points as possible. With the accumulated Contribution Points, he will try to solve the Skill Points Credit issue.
After finding the Administration Building, he found the reception counter. The system of some office here was surprisingly similar to the system back on earth. So it became a little easy for him to get used to all these.
In the Administration Building, his specific destination was Registration Counter. But as soon as he entered the Administration Building, to his surprise, there was a lengthy line towards the registration counter.
He felt helpless and obediently stood at the end of the line. As soon as he stood behind the line, he started to hear the conversation going on among these people in front of him. He heard their conversation hoping to find any useful information. But when he heard what their topic of conversation is, he felt that it was irrelevant to him.
They were discussing about unnecessary stuff. Like what they were about to open, How were they planning to grow their business, their learned profession, How much they are going to charge their customers, and so on. They did everything to know each other. Everyone had their own profession. Some might be doctors, some might be merchants, some might be related to Pharmacy. Not all the doctors could prepare the medicines to give their patients. So if they had connections with Alchemists, then they could solve this issue. Similarly, the Alchemist could use their connections with Doctors to sell the medicines they prepared.
They were trying to know each other and were trying to form relationship for future business. Ethan found nothing wrong with their dealings and felt that it was important to form relations with others.
"Hi!" ,As he was thinking, he heard a voice from his back. Ethan already sensed this person's presence a while ago. So he wasn't surprised. He turned back and found a youngster whose age is around 16 years old. He wore silk dress. His face was filled with full of enthusiasm. But he could sense a little fear from his heart.
"Hi." ,Ethan replied for formality.
That person was a little sad with such a cold response from Ethan. But he composed himself and said, "My name is Lindell! I am a Grade-1 Merchant. May I know what your name might be?"
"Sherlock Holmes!" ,Ethan was now under disguise. So he came up with a random name for himself and said.
If Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were here and saw that Ethan was using his most famous fictional Detective character, who was actually a renowned for his sharp brain and keen eyes as his fake name, then he would have definitely hacked Ethan to death.
