After The Abyss Dragon Woke Up - Chapter 9.1
The Perfect Collection (1)
Mu Heng sat in the back of the car with his legs folded and his eyes downcast. An invitation from the Ability Academy was something many people dreamed of, but in Mu Heng’s case, it was the opposite. After five consecutive years of refusal, he agreed to this invitation for the first time. The school took this very seriously and was extremely generous with the privileges offered to him. They even agreed that he could miss the first two rounds of the entrance test and only attend the third round, an actual battle against magical creatures.
This time, however, Mu Heng came just for another confidential task by the Monster Management Bureau. The vehicle slowly moved forward, and the tightly closed windows isolated all noises from the outside world.
Suddenly, Mu Heng seemed to have sensed something. He raised his eyes to look out of the car window. He saw that not far away, several tall students blocked a teenager in a corner; the atmosphere surrounding them was full of gunpowder.
The teenager who was forced in the corner had his head down; his shoulders were frail and his chin were pale and sharp. He had an air of fragility, and looked extra vulnerable and pitiful surrounded by a group of people. Additionally, the top of his furry hair looked extra familiar.
Mu Heng suddenly said, “Stop for a while.”
The driver was stunned, seemingly not expecting the person in the backseat to give such an order, but he still obediently slowed down the car.
Mu Heng: “Drive over there.”
The driver did not dare to ask more questions and took a turn in the asked direction.
The window was lowered slowly, revealing the face of the person in the backseat. The deep eyebrows with sharp-edged aggression along with the iconic silver hair tied behind the head, a pair of emotionless blue eyes slightly narrowed as he asked, “Is something wrong?” Those few people blocking Shi An turned their heads aggressively, ready to tell the newcomer to mind their own business.
But the moment they saw who it was, their hearts almost stopped beating. Their faces paled miserably with beads of sweat dripping from their foreheads as they stammered, “No, no, sir.” Mu Heng wordlessly watched the backs of those few people fleeing from the place, then turned his head, his eyes falling on the dazed teenager not far away and said, “Get in.”
The insect hidden in Shi An’s sleeve also was in the same situation where its heart almost stopped beating. As a magical creature, it certainly knew Mu Heng’s fierce reputation, and had also heard of this most powerful person’s extraordinary intuition. It dared not pass any comments to Shi An, and only prayed silently in its heart一
Don’t go! Do not go!
Find an excuse to leave!!!!!
Shi An looked at the bright and flash moving subject in front of him, and subconsciously agreed in one breath.
It was so angry that it rolled its eyes, and wished that it could shake Shi An’s shoulders hard to check if his ears were still working. Of course it was just a thought. It definitely dared not actually do it. Shi An walked to the other side, directly pulled open the door of the backseat, and slid in next to Mu Heng.
The driver sitting in the forefront: “……”
He had never seen such a …… self-conscious people.
The vehicle slowly started moving.
Mu Heng: “Address.”
The sunlight from outside fell on his silver hair, making the flowing hair look like melted silver. Within the confined space inside the car, it appeared shinier and brighter that Shi An fell into a bit of a trance. “Hmm?”
“The address of the dormitory.” Mu Heng repeated patiently.
Shi An: “I’m not going back to the dorm.”
He thought for a moment and continued, “By the way, can you let me go back to the place where I got in the car just now?”
After all, the rift should be right around there.
Then why did you just get into the car just now?!
Mu Heng also didn’t seem to have expected this answer. He was stunned and turned his head sideways to look at the teenager sitting next to him. That night, Mu Heng did not pay much attention to Shi An’s appearance. This was the first time he took a careful look at the boy. The young man was very thin, but the lines of his features were soft and rounded. His two eyes were very dark, although they were bright and clear as if they were infiltrated with mercury, it made him look cute and obedient; an extremely harmless look. Mu Heng’s brow slightly furrowed.
Although the results of the test instrument was very obvious, and Shi An’s resume also contained nothing suspicious, However, he always felt that something was off with this person一it were as if there was a dark and deep whirlpool swirling underneath a calm and peaceful surface of still waters.
Under the extremely focused gaze of those eyes, a vague sense of restlessness rose up in Mu Heng’s heart.
“Did you consider my proposal last time?”
Mu Heng: “…… what?”
Shi An responded naturally as though it was a matter of fact, “Of course it’s the matter of me buying you.” The driver in the front could not control his trembling hand from this revelation, almost swerving out of the lane, and only then barely had gotten a hold of his shaken emotions一this was the first time he served this legendary officer, but who would have thought that he’d encounter such a shocking thing on his first day itself!
Mu Heng’s face was no different from the previous time. He rubbed the tip of his fingertips, lowered his dark cold eyes; underneath the dark blue colour, it was as though a storm was brewing in the distant sky. His voice had a kind of impassive silence.
“Tell me, why?”
“Of course because you look good.” Shi An replied without hesitation.
Especially the hair and eyes.
Dragons were all very vain and beauty-loving creatures, and they were never stingy in showing their love of beauty.
一Although, the way they expressed their love was often through robbery and plunder.
“Squeak!” The tires scraped across the ground with a harsh sound, even if the car was quite advanced, the body could not help but shake violently. Shi An did not have time to finish the rest of his words when he couldn’t sit back and fell forward. A hand with a black tactical glove held him up. The fingers were long and smooth, as if they contained a force that cannot be underestimated, firmly holding the young man’s thin shoulders. He was very strong. Even through the thin clothing, the rough leather texture was still deeply and heavily branded on the other side of the skin. The additional friction of the clothes brought a searing heated pain to him.
Shi An could not stand being grabbed like that. He was super afraid of pain, so he instinctively struggled and protested bluntly, “It hurts, let go.”
He had a look of despair. He had heard so many things, surely he’ll be forever silenced, right?
Mu Heng raised his eyes, and a pair of silver-blue eyes swept faintly in the driver’s direction. The driver shuddered and immediately withdrew his sight, his eyes staring dead straight at the road in front of him, afraid of attracting the slightest attention from the back again.
Mu Heng let go of his hand. He said, “Turn around.” Very quickly, the vehicle made a U-turn and went back to the place where Shi An got in. Shi An opened the door, and happily got out of the car then waved behind him. “Bye-bye, remember to consider my offer!”
The person in the car did not answer, and the window that blocked the outside world’s vision rolled up to cover the man’s sharp facial lines. The vehicle started and continued to drive in the original direction.
