People get what they deserve and snakes get stomped. If you bully enough people, you're bound to run into one with a System. That's what Ben thought anyway.
He didn't care about Zachary's suffering. Ben only ever shared his goodwill and mercy with beauties and animal-eared NPCs. He decided to relish in Zachary's pain and fear like Pennywise.
Ben was still standing at the front of the room waiting for feedback and criticism from the audience, but what kind of criticism could they give? The professor and others showered him with praise before he returned to his seat. Since all the students had spoken, the professor gave some final words at the front.
"Benjamin-san, you were amazing," Miyuki whispered.
Rather than watching the professor, something else captivated Ben's eyes.

'Holy sh*t! How did she jump from curious to attracted?' Before he went up, Ben remembered that Miyuki's attraction level was only at curious. In that short time, it jumped two levels to attracted! That was one level from the top! How did it happen?
He considered the possibilities. After a few seconds, Ben realized he'd heard something about this. Beluga had explained a woman's attraction can rise when viewing you do certain activities. The activity responsible for raising Miyuki's attraction was obvious!
Ben gave a brilliant speech that blew everyone away! If you asked any person in the room, they would tell you that giving a captivating performance could attract women! It made perfect sense!
Ben had a different idea. 'It was the face-slapping!'
A speech was a speech, you could watch one on TV every day, but how often do you see someone get face-slapped into oblivion like that? To Ben, it was a simple case of scientific observation.
'Oh my god! Face-slapping can get women! It's not only me…women love face-slapping too! This is two for the price of one!'
Ben felt he now understood the motivations of bullies. 'This must've been their goal all along!' He took a step forward in his comprehension…of the divine dao of face-slapping.
'It's a sick world, but as long as it's my hand doing the slapping...I don't mind at all! I'm going helicopter hands!' Ben visualized himself with arms out as a spinning helicopter slapping everyone in his way!
Many students attend their first year at university not yet knowing their passions or what they want to study. These were things they would discover at school. It was such a day for Ben. A young man found his calling!
He finalized his field of study at university—face-slapping!
As an academic focus...it was similar to art history in that it might be tough to find companies to hire him for this specialization. But in life, you have to follow your passion!
While Ben was daydreaming, Miyuki glanced over at Zachary who's face was still green. She couldn't help but frown and find him more…disgusting today.
[Congratulations! You've unlocked the Achievement: Breaking Balls(uncommon) - Induce one woman to lower her attraction level for a competing man]
[Distributing reward: PUA Points + 200]
'IT'S REAL!' Ben even got reward points for face-slapping!
Ben swore to himself that if he survived next week, he'd become a better face-slapper than a Hindu goddess!
It was the birth of a face-slapping Asura!
While the diligent Ben planned his future study path, a bell rang in the building signaling the end of the last lecture. The first one to leave wasn't a student, but Zachary, who told the professor he felt unwell before running out the door. It was believable. The professor said nothing, because he also saw how Zachary got d*cked all up and down.
When the students left, the only ones remaining were the professor, Ben, and Miyuki. Before leaving, the professor exchanged personal contacts with Ben, only saying he might call him about a potential opportunity soon.
When only Ben and Miyuki remained, Miyuki became nervous. She realized she had a problem. While the university didn't forbid an R.A. to date an undergrad, the school frowned upon it. Ben also lived in her floor which made it worse. Still, why did the idea make her a little...excited?
Ben considered how to proceed. 'Should I ask her for a date tomorrow? ...No, Beluga said I can't come across as desperate.' Ben felt the hot coals of the system's deadline burning his feet from below, but he knew this required patience. Otherwise, his eagerness would be a turn-off and he'd ruin everything.
He exchanged numbers with Miyuki, saying he'd call her soon. Then he walked out.
Ben had a pressing matter to take care of because Santa was about to deliver a gift under his Christmas tree.
