What exactly is going on?
Nie Li felt something strange. The words of Shen Yue could only be surreal. A leopard can't change his spots, yet Shen Yue's behavior seemed to undergone alternation.
Nie Li tried to recall the memories he had with this guy, but comparing them could only be said as heaven and earth.
Shen Yue is a widely recognized silkpant who throws money like dirt. He treats common people with an air of disdain, washing hands when he touches them in an accident. If you ask Nie Li's impression on Shen Yue, it would be his tail wagging there and here in front of Ye Ziyun.
To make matter worse, rumors spread that Shen Yue has girls in his home. Instead of cultivation, he did reproduction.
In his previous incantation, Shen Yue and Ye Ziyun have the greatest talent in the young generation, so both were connected through a marriage engagement.
But here now, the Shen Yue of today was very different. Having Nie Li's face smack was a bitter pill to swallow for him.
Although Nie Li wasn't at his wits' end, everyone in the classroom was already throwing him a 'boos' and this frustrated him. Except for some special ones, everyone was throwing stones, yelling at Nie Li, 'Get the f*ck off! 'A disgrace of nobles!' 'Attention seeker, go die!'
Those words added fuel to the fire, and Nie Li could only gnash his teeth. "Student Shen Yue, aren't you going too far with your words?"
In the foregone conclusion, Nie Li's words were a bolt from the blue. They hadn't expected him to ditch in the last desperation, so the whispering ended, as the students all turned to stare at Nie Li.
"Can you elaborate, fellow student Nie Li?" Shen Yue asked.
"Fellow student Shen Yue is a free spirit, so naturally you aren't aware of some things." Nie Li said.
"Eh, is that so?" Shen Yue smiled. He was naturally aware that Nie Li just insulted him as a 'bumpkin'.
"En," Nie Li nodded and said. "Have you heard of Spiritualist Book?"
Shen Yue shook his head. Before even Nie Li could speak, Shen Yue turned to stare at everyone. "Anyone here heard of this so-called Spiritualist Book?"
Everyone exchanged glances with their buddies. The book nerds in the room pondered for a brief moment before shaking their heads in confusion. Naturally, everyone here hadn't heard of it.
"It seems that everyone hasn't heard of it," Shen Yue turned his head at Nie Li with a smile.
"Haven't heard of it?" This was a thunderclap to Nie Li's solid walls of confidence.
"Don't tell me student Nie Li has lived in that era..." Shen Yue chuckled then his face turned solemn, "...or has been reborn?"
The students laughed. Although they didn't get the point of Shen Yue's words, the Spiritualist Book was something they hadn't seen, so they treated Nie Li as a butt of the joke.
But somewhere nearby, Ye Ziyun didn't have the same idea. She was shocked by Nie Li's words. 'Spiritualist book...the ancient book, don't tell he had seen it? But how was that possible?"
Nie Li's face was sunken the more he looked at the smile of Shen Yue; his heart tightened in a whirl of confusion. Stunned and disbelief, Shen Yue's words were like moths to a flame, and he almost blurted out that he indeed came from the future. Fortunately, he didn't speak those words out loud, else he would have been in great danger.
Although his heart was chaotic, Nie Li remained calm as he recalled his memories of the Glory City. Despite being sure that he had seen the Spiritualist Book, the confusion clouded his judgment. 'I'm sure I've seen the book. Did I get it wrong?"
Nie Li's heart rate became faster, but he calm his wrecking nerves. Living for five centuries, spending a lot of time within the Temporal Spiritual Book, the knowledge he had accumulated wasn't something that could be shaken.
What's happening? I tried to agitate Shen Yue, but he's impartial on it. It's as if I'm facing a completely different person. The Spiritualist book, I'm pretty sure some students have tried to learn its content...
All the students had noticed Nie Li's pale complexion. Just like a block of wood, he was rooted in the ground. Lu Piao just right beside him started to feel uneasy. "Oi, Nie Li."
Despite his call, Nie Li hadn't shown any sign of moments.
"Nie Li!" Lu Piao muttered, but Nie Li was still in a trance, so he shouted twice...
That shout was an awakening. Nie Li finally reacted as he looked at Lu Piao. He then scanned the room; Shen Xiu was sneering at him and the students were looking at him with a myriad of emotions...
But when his gaze landed at Ye Ziyun, the confusion within the eyes of Nie Li instantly vanished as he figured out the reason!
The Spiritualist Book does exist...
But not right now... But in the following years!
