Tempest of the Stellar War
Chapter 21: Dormitory 007
Translator: Abyssruler Editor: Lucas
In the office, a fully concentrated Solon began to write sincere emails to all of the ranked players. If a hundred emails were not enough, he would write a thousand!
Wang Zheng had just left Brothers Net Cafe when his Skylink began to ring incessantly.
It was Ye Zisu.
"What's up, Zisu?"
"I hope your dormitory isn't too shabby, but on behalf of my dormitory roommates, I would like to invite you to join us for a gathering!"
Ye Zisu seemed pretty embarrassed. It seemed as though she was being coerced into doing so.
Wang Zheng paused to consider the offer. "Today's girls were pretty enthusiastic," he thought to himself, before replying, "Your offer is pretty enticing."
"Alright, then it's settled. I will be there this weekend to organize this."
After saying so, she hung up the Skylink call, yet in the background, sounds of excitement coming from numerous girls could be heard.
Wang Zheng shrugged his shoulders nonchalantly. He could feel the callings of a university life from this invitation.
With regards to this aspect, Student Wang was pretty cool about it. Having such adorable thoughts was something he rarely had nowadays.
At night, the dormitory was ablaze with chatter, a common occurrence.
Firstly, they had to decide who would serve as the dormitory head. Yao Ailun gently adjusted his spectacles and said, "In the future, we will all become brothers in arms. Naturally, the dormitory head will have to be the most capable individual. I am a meticulous individual, and with regards to lesson curriculum and information gathering, I am an expert."
A glimmer of light could be seen in Yao Ailun's eyes.
Zhang Shan gave a slight smile. "I was my intermediate school's MMA champion. I will ensure everyone's safety!"
Similarly, Chen Xiu bashfully said, "I'm the youngest here and hope to serve the rest of you."
The three of them then looked in Wang Zheng's direction. Wang Zheng was sincerely disinterested in this competition for the role of dormitory head.
"Wang Zheng, although you might hail from the capital, this alone is not a legitimate reason for you to become the dormitory head," spoke Yao Ailun. Wang Zheng was a student that was specially admitted into the academy. Furthermore, he was the Doctor's personal assistant. He could be considered an individual with significant "influence."
Coughs "I have no strong points so as to speak. However, what I would like to say is that for this weekend, the Mecha Department's girls would like to have a friendly gathering. Are you interested?" Wang Zheng asked.
Zhang Shan's eyebrows creased. "The Mecha Department? Do you intend to feed us to dinosaurs?!"
Yao Ailun laughed mischievously. "Being uncultured is truly frightening. The girls from the Mecha Department might not necessarily be pilots. Wang Zheng, are they beauties? Don't throw us into the fire!"
Wang Zheng pondered for a moment…. If all the girls were of the same caliber as Ye Zisu…. "I have not met these girls personally before, but they ought to be beauties. One of them was known as the school's flower in my previous school."
The three of them then looked at each other momentarily. Zhang Shan suddenly reached out to grab Wang Zheng. "Even if you're a tyrant, it's fine! I strongly recommend Wang Zheng to serve as our dormitory head! In the future, we three brothers will rely on you!"
"Ah, a school flower? It's my favourite kind of flower," Yao Ailun said as he gracefully wiped his spectacles, his eyes full of vigor."
"But… what about me?" a pitiful Chen Xiu said as he pointed at himself. Sometimes, being the youngest was not an advantage.
"Little Xiu, don't be anxious. We will take up and share your burden, so rest assured!" Zhang Shan said as he patted Chen Xiu vigorously, almost knocking him to the floor.
Thus, Student Wang was chosen to be the dormitory head. Sometimes, the reasons men come up with are nonsensical. However, Wang Zheng had a feeling that if Ye Zisu's friends were indeed dinosaurs, these chaps would definitely have him overthrown.
And this was how Ares College's first day of chatter had unfolded. Wang Zheng was a good listener and these three had interesting backgrounds. Zhang Shan had chosen the Physics Department over the Mecha Department, the exact opposite of what Wang Zheng would have chosen. There were indeed people from all sorts of background here!
To Zhang Shan, physical exercise was just a hobby that was incomparable to the greatness of the scientific realm. Developing the mind was a never-ending journey.
Just by looking at his large frame, one could not see at first glance that he was indeed an intelligent and refined modern youth.
However, in Wang Zheng's case, he was mulling over how he could quickly get rid of his attachment to the Physics Department and return to the embrace of the Mecha Department! That day would come eventually!
Despite Wang Zheng going to sleep with these lovely thoughts in his head, that night, he had a nightmare. He did not dream of Bonehead. No. It was worse. Xiao Fei was using his face to sharpen a sword…
"Boy, while you live, your body belongs to me. When you die, your soul will belong to me. No matter how vast and wide the universe might be, you will always be a part of the Physics Department…"
In his dreams, Wang Zheng repeatedly reassured himself that this was only a dream, and that it will all be over once he awakens.
As the first rays of light lit up the sky, Wang Zheng opened his eyes. Last night, the other three had thoroughly talked about all of the beauties they could conquer under the cosmos. It seemed that even those of the Physics Department were extremely passionate about such matters.
However, Wang Zheng was not the sole one to wake up early. Zhang Shan's bed, the one opposite his, was already empty. When Wang Zheng arrived at the gym court, he understood. He was not the only early bird; there were already numerous individuals carrying out their own forms of morning exercise. Zhang Shan's size was too eye-catching. He was only wearing a short sleeved sweatshirt, so one could see the muscles rippling explosively underneath as he did his single-armed chin ups. He looked extremely relaxed as he executed his chin ups smoothly.
Without paying any attention to the stares of those around him, Zhang Shan leaped to the ground with a single somersault. If there were any girls around, they would surely scream in excitement.
Seeing Wang Zheng, Zhang Shan was slightly surprised. "I did not expect you to have the habit of training in the morning."
Wang Zheng gave him a smile and replied, "My aim is to be a mech pilot after all. I have to keep on training."
Zhang Shan looked at Student Wang's "small" physique. "Looking at your body size, I think you should just give up. You might still have a chance to enter the Officer's Department. A mech pilot would suffer a large burden on the body and thus not everyone is eligible. This is why the Earth's forces are insufficient. You should instead focus on your strengths and develop them."
Wang Zheng noncommittally replied, "Your body's toughness and flexibility is excellent, yet you're wasting your talent by not being a mech pilot. "
Zhang Shan laughed loudly. He now saw Wang Zheng in a different light. Wang Zheng did not mention his muscles but rather the flexibility of his body as though he was trying to hint at something.
"Do you want to compete?" Zhang Shan asked without thinking.
Wang Zheng waved his hands. "I think you should continue training. If the opportunity arises, we will exchange pointers."
Wang Zheng's first step was to cultivate the first level of his breathing art. The best effects were produced when this was done facing the morning sun. However, this was not taught by Bonehead but rather his father. This breathing technique allowed him to be one with the heavens. A newborn fetus is able to absorb the Heaven and Earth spiritual qi, but once one grows older, they will be less and less able to do so. Thus, this breathing technique allowed one to condition themselves to achieve such a state and absorb the qi. Wang Zheng had previously thought that this was a load of nonsense, but after cultivating the first level of the art, he had felt that it seemed slightly reasonable.
He sat down facing the morning son after finding an empty space. The first level of the breathing technique began to slowly circulate within his body.
On the outside, it seemed as though the first level of the breathing art's operation was more difficult than the Rubik's Cube. However, the effects were slightly superior. Wang Zheng understood that the reason his father had tricked him into learning it was not ill-intentioned. Yet if he had not encountered the Rubik's Cube, perhaps he might not have had this opportunity to develop.
After the qi finished circulating around his body, Wang Zheng felt utterly refreshed and reinvigorated. The morning sun's energy had left his body by now. Although the vast majority of it had returned back to nature, a trace amount still remained inside Wang Zheng's body.
"Wang Zheng, are you actually part of an evil cult?"
A delicate, smiling-faced Ye Zisu entered his field of vision. When did she arrive?
Wang Zheng stood up and blinked his eyes. "I was praying for my luck to improve, to enter the Mecha Department, and for us to become classmates again. That would be the dawn of a better era."
Ye Zisu clicked her tongue. "You're not as simple as I thought; you're making me the butt of a joke."
As the two laughed and chatted, they did not notice that the attention of the surrounding people was focused on them. When Ye Zisu entered the school, she was the center of attention. Her profile picture on Ares College's website placed her in the top 10 of the most popular individuals. Furthermore, she was a beauty and was OMG's little princess.
"Who is that shifty-looking individual? He dares to stand next to Ye Zisu and chat with her for almost 30 minutes!"
"I don't recognize him, but he should also be a student. I have never heard of him."
"F**k, the wolves are numerous and the meat is limited; we will have to do something."
As there was an innumerable amount of senior students, the new male students had to give a 120% to show off their fighting spirit.
There weren't many girls who liked to exercise in the morning. Ye Zisu was definitely the crane in a flock of chicken. Wearing a white T- shirt and azure hotpants, coupled with her white sports shoes, she was the very definition of an unparalleled beautiful youth. Her looks had excited the hormones of numerous male students as they stared at her.
"Wang Zheng, are you going to introduce me? Who might this be?"
He had not noticed that Zhang Shan had walked over.
"This is my classmate from Dawn Middle School, Ye Zisu, also known as Beauty Ye."
Before Wang Zheng could finish his introduction, Zhang Shan had already stretched his hand out towards Ye Zisu. "Name's Zhang Shan, Wang Zheng's dormitory roommate. If anyone bothers you in the future, do not hesitate to find me."
Ye Zisu raised her hand and shook his hand lightly. "I have been looking forward to meeting you for some time. Dormitory 007 of the Physics Department is the pride of our school."
"Hehe, well, somewhat. Actually, if you knew me better, you would already know that I am a person full of good points."
Wang Zheng didn't know whether to laugh or to cry. This brother of his was indeed slightly shameless. He had thought that those from the Physics Department were more low profile. However, contrary to what he thought, Zhang Shan even took the initiative to stand out.
Zhang Shan hurriedly gave Wang Zheng a wink and then secretly gave him a thumbs up. This situation was one of a kind, so he could not wait for the upcoming gathering.
Wang Zheng helplessly shrugged his shoulders. It looked like they would not overthrow him from his position of dormitory head any time soon.
"Does our dormitory have such a name?" Wang Zheng asked.
Ye Zisu looked at Wang Zheng in surprise. Zhang Shan, who was also standing at the side, looked at Wang Zheng as though he was an alien.
"Why are you looking at me like that?"
"I want to faint. I don't understand why Doctor Xiao Fei would hold you in such high regard. The Physics Department's 007's four special individuals, along with Masasi and Carl, are considered the pride of the school for this year. Under my guidance, the Ares College will definitely achieve new heights!"
Zhang Shan was completely unashamed.
Wang Zheng scratched his nose. He had always struggled in poverty, so he didn't understand Zhang Shan's lofty ambitions and aspirations.
"Excellent, the Physics Department will be left in your hands. I will tell Dr. Xiao Fei to let you replace me as her assistant."
Zhang Shan was excited. Why would he not be satisfied with this?
A shocked Ye Zisu stood there, mouth agape. Although she knew that Wang Zheng loved mecha, she did not expect such a situation to occur. Ares College's sole specialty was Xiao Fei's space physics research. She was the Milky Way's pinnacle expert in this field. The other departments may be top tier on Earth, but compared to the rest of the galaxy? They could not even hold a candle to them.
"Brother, thank you for giving me face, I will continue to strive harder!" Zhang Shan heavily patted Wang Zheng's back.
Wang Zheng nonchalantly nodded his head. To him, being able to be rid of Xiao Fei was a brilliant thing. He had always told himself that Xiao Fei was nothing but trouble.
Zhang Shan's eyes shone with curiosity. He had spared no force when he patted Wang Zheng's back, but he did not even budge. In fact, he felt an extremely strong recoiling force from his shoulders.
He clicked his tongue. There was meaning to this now. This year's batch of students from Ares College still contained some crouching tigers and hidden dragons.
