That’s right, Jiang Nan had arrived!
He had been held up by Eddy at the pasture for half an hour, and it wasn’t until five minutes before that he finally found an excuse to excuse himself.
By coincidence, Jiang Nan had arrived right as Reggie was about to assassinate Weylin. However, Weylin’s clear determination to die ignited a violent fury in his heart, so he activated the Radiance Technique and then punched out a heavy fist towards Reggie.
Even Jiang Nan didn’t know why he was so furious, but there was one thing that he was very clear on. Right now, he was enraged, extremely enraged!
More so in particular when he saw Victor in his proposal attire lying on the ground! The rage in his heart had already become an unrestrainable urge!
Jiang Nan’s fist knocked Reggie to the ground, and then used its lingering momentum to punch towards Rick’s head. As Jiang Nan’s body spun around, his two fists also swivelled like two wings of a windmill, smashing towards Rick’s face.
This motion was precisely an imitation of the move Hank used, Iron Roar’s Twenty-Fourth Stance, Massive Windmill!
Although Jiang Nan did not understand the essence of this skill and had just temporarily imitated it on a whim, after activating the Radiance Technique, his primary-rank 8th level necromantic energy was not something Rick could withstand.
Rick was only a primary-rank 7th level Star Totem Warrior who didn’t dare to fight head-on against Jiang Nan. Transforming into a beam of starlight, he wanted to fly to the side and land a sneak attack on the middle of Jiang Nan’s back.
But right as Rick flew to the side, he suddenly recalled the evaluation given towards Jiang Nan on the Totem Ranking, “Professor, although he is only at the 8th level, his actual fighting technique is the absolute greatest in Sun City! With his incomparable striking speed and his matchless attack rhythm, if one does not have an overpowering advantage in strength, one must avoid close combat by all means!”
He had to avoid close combat with the Professor!
Reggie fiercely sucked in a breath and forcefully stopped his body from dashing forward.
However, between experts, victory could be decided within a breath’s time. The hesitation Reggie displayed was more than enough time for Jiang Nan to seize an opportunity!
“Mister, you need to be a bit more focused.”
From his fighting experience with Hank, Jiang Nan had a deep understanding that the speed at which he dislocated bones had an enormous advantage in actual battle. He extended two fingers out and lightly grasped onto the starlight which Rick had turned into.
When Rick’s body halted, his body involuntarily reverted back to his human form, and right at that moment, Jiang Nan followed the patterns of his transformation and clack! Clack! He dislocated all the joints in Rick’s two arms.
As if he was disposing of garbage, Jiang Nan threw Rick beside Reggie.
He then swept his gaze over the fifty assassins still hiding in ambush, “Gentlemen, do you still wish to continue?”
With just two moves, he disabled the Gemini who held rank nineteen?!
Sun City’s ranked fourth expert was truly deserving of his reputation!!
The assassins sank into a brief moment of disorder and panic.
At this time, Reggie, who had been knocked flying by Jiang Nan’s fist, had already climbed to his feet. His right hand faintly shook as his head sank with dizziness, “Stop, everybody stop! Listen to me!”
The assassins let out a sigh of relief as though a burden had been lifted off their shoulders.
Reggie supported his twin big brother whose body was half limp and took a clear look at Jiang Nan for the first time.
Jiang Nan was still dressed in the disguise he had used the past few days: a shabby, sackcloth robe, a pair of worn out, cotton shoes, as well as several strips of rags to hide his face.
The widely spread rumors that referred to the Professor as a fallen aristocrat were, as expected, true.
Reggie confirmed Jiang Nan’s identity, “Lord Professor, this is a personal grudge between us and Weylin. *You are only an outsider aristocrat. Is there a need for you to stick out your head for Weylin and get muddled up into this?
Help us out, okay? Let us take away Weylin and early tomorrow morning, we’ll willingly present *you with a gift of gratitude fitting to *your identity!”
“Not a bad deal, but….” Jiang Nan circled around the Weylin whose face was full of astonishment, deliberately speaking in a throaty and hoarse voice, “What if I refuse?”
“Lord Professor, I must warn *you that *your decision is unwise!” Reggie didn’t want to give up this opportunity to assassinate Weylin. Seeing that his attractive proposal had no effect, his face went icy as he spoke menacingly: “I admit, *you are more than capable of protecting Weylin from our hands tonight. However, our attempts at assassinating Weylin will not cease here! Even if *you protect Weylin tonight, what about tomorrow? Can *you guard Weylin at her side for an entire lifetime? Professor, your actions are completely meaningless!”
“Oh, your words do make a bit of sense. However…. who says that I can’t guard Weylin at her side for an entire lifetime?!”
Jiang Nan’s tone suddenly heightened as he dashed towards Weylin and gave a slight bow, “Miss Weylin, I sincerely request with the title of Professor to apply to join West Farms. Are *you…. interested in recruiting me?”
Weylin stared with her eyes wide in stupefaction, “You, you….”
“Miss, *you have not heard wrongly. I am currently applying to join *your farm.” Jiang Nan spread his arms apart helplessly, “*You’ve also seen my appearance. Okay, I am a foreign aristocrat who has fallen into dire straits. I need some work to support myself.”
He actually wanted to join her farm?!
Sun City’s ranked fourth expert was actually willing to lean on a near hopeless farm?!
Weylin didn’t dare to believe that this kind of fortune had befallen her, but she was even more unwilling to give up this golden opportunity from the heavens, “Lord Professor, I sincerely request with my name as Weylin for *your services as West Farms’ chief associate!”
Jiang Nan smiled.
Then, he turned around to face the Gemini, “Gentlemen, you’ve heard it all. Now, give me your answer. Will you decide to…. leave unaccompanied, or have me drive you away?”
“Professor, you will regret the decision you made today!”
Reggie brought his people and left Weylin’s courtyard.
Not long after they left, Weylin’s expression turned from shock to perplexity, which further turned into an iciness that kept people at a distance of a thousand miles away.
She was suspecting the Professor’s choice: thinking a bit deeper about it, the Professor was a person whose strength was ranked fourth in all of Sun City. Suzanne and the others had also provided exceedingly attractive proposals to lure him in.
The Professor actually chose the her who was nearly at the end of her rope?!
There was definitely some sort of unspeakable aim behind this behavior!
Weylin skeptically gave Jiang Nan a measuring look, “The enemy has already left. Can you speak truthfully now? Exactly what are you aiming for in joining my farm?”
“Is this question of yours that important? Miss Weylin, I helped you force those assassins into retreat, and your farm possesses the backing of one of the top ten experts once more. With this kind of outcome, is there a need for you to question my goals?” Jiang Nan patted Weylin’s shoulder, “If you really need an answer…. Okay, just take it as me meddling in other people’s business. On the other hand, please speak a bit more courteously. I am not your slave, but rather on equal terms with you, am I not?”
“Just being meddlesome? Hmph, do you expect *me to believe your false nonsense?!”
Weylin snorted harshly, but she no longer had the courage to continue interrogating him.
She was afraid that if she continued to ask questions, the Professor would just abandon her!
Weylin was very clear about the current situation: the Professor was Sun City’s fourth ranked expert. With his cooperation, on defense, she could still preserve the lifeblood of her father even under Suzanne’s forceful tactics. Offensively, she could silently wait for her injuries to fully heal, then team up with the Professor to subdue all the various powers in Sun City. Furthermore, whether she went on the defensive or offensive, there was no need whatsoever for her to put her life on the line to protect the farm.
In the face of such generous benefits, even if Weylin knew that the Professor harbored questionable intent, she still couldn’t bear to let him go.
“Alright, this woman always keeps her word! From this day forward, you are West Farm’s chief marshal!”
Weylin waved her fist about as she spoke, then pointed towards the ragged strips on Jiang Nan’s face, “You’ve already joined my farm. Are you still not going to take that mask off?”
“Miss Weylin, you ought to learn to respect the secrets of others.” Jiang Nan touched the strips on his face, “Just take a look. That I’ve dressed myself up like this shows that I definitely have my own troubles. I am not preparing to tell you of my identity, nor am I preparing to take off my mask. If you force me…. Alright, I don’t mind leaving this place or even fighting with you.”
After he said this, Jiang Nan turned to leave.
“Halt!” Weylin stopped Jiang Nan, “This woman respects your private affairs! Starting today, I won’t ask you about your background or try to look at your appearance! This should be enough, right?!”
Jiang Nan chuckled.
Weylin, on the other hand, glared at the Victor who was on the side while seething, “However, since you’ve already joined my farm anyhow, how about you first help me take care of some trash?”
Jiang Nan eyes followed Weylin’s gaze to also land on Victor, “Do you want me to kill him?”
“Correct, kill him!” This was what Weylin wanted to say, “Since that lowlife I’ve taken a fancy to doesn’t have the ability to kill Victor, this woman will just help him get rid of this love rival in his place!”
