Chapter 144: Beauty Is Like Jade (Part One)
After changing into the student uniform of the Martial Arts Academy, Fang Jie looked at himself in the bronze mirror and was pleased with it.
Before going to Fangu and even before coming to Great Sui, Fang Jie already had the goal of entering the Martial Arts Academy and avoiding being hunt down. After so many years, he finally realized this goal. He thought he would be extremely excited, but he was quite calm right now.
The long robe was blue and black, and the belt was white. Fang Jie looked extremely energetic in this uniform.
Fang Jie also combed his hair delicately and tied his hair into a man ponytail. It was mostly girls who had the ponytail hairstyle on Earth, but since most men in this world had long hair, it was quite normal. Fang Jie looked dashing with this hairstyle.
After cleaning his room, he wanted to say farewell to Mu Xiaoyao and others first.
When he exited the room, he saw Da Quan chuckling on the stairs before the room, and Chen Qingshan leaned against a pillar with her arms crossed in front of her chest and a strange smile on her face. Qi Lin was standing not far away with a big bag on his back, looking expectant.
However, Mu Xiaoyao was nowhere to be seen.
“Where is Sister Xiaoyao?” Fang Jie asked.
Da Quan scratched his head and said, “She went to find Mr. Zhuo. She said that since you got into the Martial Arts Academy, there is nothing for her to worry about. Therefore, she left early in the morning and went to the Royal Guard. I asked her if she has anything to say to you, and she said that she will tell you in three years. I don’t understand why she has to wait three years.”
Fang Jie felt like he vaguely understood Mu Xiaoyao.
Before Fang Jie could go to the Martial Arts Academy, Mu Xiaoyao headed to the Royal Guard first. She wasn’t willing to see Fang Jie leave.
When she went to the Royal Guard for the first time, she left first, and Fang Jie watched her.
This tough-looking woman was extremely fragile; she wasn’t able to handle someone dear to her leaving.
However, Fang Jie didn’t dare to make random guesses about what she wanted to say to him in three years.
“It’s not like we won’t see each other in three years; I will come back and visit you guys when I have time.” Fang Jie rubbed his nose and felt like crying.
“Fang Jie, do you have anything you want to say to me before you leave?” Da Quan asked.
Fang Jie hesitated for a second and said, “Eat meat and grow stronger.”
Da Quan pursed his lips and said, “Yuck, this is all you got after I waited for so long? Do you need me to ask you to leave silver certificates behind? How can I eat meat without money? Although we are living in Gold-Sharing Duke’s residence, we aren’t the owner. We can’t do anything in Chang’an without money!”
Fang Jie blushed and said with an awkward smile, “I didn’t forget about that. The remaining silver certificates are under my pillow. I thought you guys aren’t awake yet; I didn’t think you would wait here so early in the morning to ask for money.”
After a pause, he said, “Also, as to the shop that I just rented, a few tailors who I hired already moved in for a few days now. Sister Qingshan, Da Quan, you guys can go and check it out sometimes. Sister Qingshan, they are making the styles that aren’t for sale yet, and they sure fit you. I talked with Gold-Sharing Duke about this, and we were planning to surprise everyone. However, since he went to the northwest last night, we can only do it ourselves. That is alright. Don’t sell anything just yet. Wait for my message.”
Chen Qingshan froze for a second and asked in surprise, “You want me to be the boss of that tailor shop?”
