Chapter 19 Starnet Stone

When Bai Xiaofei left the Hundred Flavor House, only night remained from the “evening and night” that Xue Ying spoke of. For a long while, there wasn’t anyone leading the way. But, fortunately, Bai Xiaofei wasn’t stupid and had previously asked Bai Ye for the specific route when they were having their meal. So even though he hadn’t taken this route before, and no matter how difficult it was to find, it wouldn’t be as difficult as finding the Savage Class…

Furthermore, Bai Xiaofei didn’t need to waste any energy because the dormitory area accommodating the new students was terribly busy at the moment.

Bai Xiaofei quickly found his dormitory according to the room number given to him by Xue Ying – room number 807. This was where he would be staying for the next four years. Before he could walk in, however, Mo Ka’s unique voice sounded out.

“What are both of you worrying about? That Bai Xiaofei will surely come here. Or could it be he could sleep outside!? Remember what I said, you two just need to do what I’ve said!” As the person with the most intelligent mind among the three of them, Mo Ka very naturally became the head of their small gang, and if he dealt with Bai Xiaofei, he would be like a fish in water within this dormitory room.

But, unfortunately, the person he wanted to scheme against was Bai Xiaofei…

“Huskie, it’s up to you,” Bai Xiaofei said, pressing his hand onto Huskie’s head. A light yellow glow representing origin energy gushed into Huskie’s body and created a blue flash of light. In the blink of an eye Huskie vanished, replaced by a lifelike Bai Ye!

Bai Xiaofei had always told others he was an Illusion Stream puppet master, but he had never said the specifics of Huskie’s ability. So, most people assumed Huskie’s ability was the simple illusions that ordinary Illusion Stream puppets were capable of.

But, in truth, Huskie’s ability was the rarest within the Illusion Stream – Mimicry!

So long as it was a living being that Huskie had seen, he would be able to take its form, and if they were in contact for a long period of time, Huskie would be able to mimic the being flawlessly!

Both the senior who had arrived when Bai Xiaofei made a move to embarrass the senior in charge of leading them to their beds during the entrance test and the Qin Lingyan who had led Bai Xiaofei into the entrance were Huskie’s work.

Moreover, that Qin Lingyan was the outcome of complete mimicry, which was the reason why Bai Ye didn’t realize she was a fake.

Huskie, however, currently had an extremely great flaw: his grade wasn’t high, causing him to be unable to speak during his mimicry.

But this was already enough for Bai Xiaofei!

First, Huskie, who’d transformed into Bai Ye, walked to stand before Bai Xiaofei and pushed open the door to dormitory number 807. At almost the same time, a resounding crash reverberated throughout the entire room.

“Who f*cking—” The lines Mo Ka had long prepared escaped his lips, but he immediately swallowed the remaining half before he could completely get into the zone. “Se…Senior…”

Swoosh!

The three people in the room stood up at the same time, and Mo Ka’s face was covered in embarrassment. He was at a slight loss for what to do.

“Big Brother, what happened!?” Bai Xiaofei walked in “at just the right time”, and he instantly “understood” what had occured when he saw the jug lying on the ground. “It’s fine, it’s fine. Big Brother Bai is one of our own, and he isn’t like the other seniors. There’s no need to be afraid, Brothers.” 

As soon as Bai Xiaofei spoke, the three of them instantly seemed as if they had grabbed onto a life-saving straw, especially Mo Ka. He even shot over a gaze that pleaded for help.

Bai Xiaofei gave Mo Ka a gaze that meant he understood, and he “thought of a method” to send away “Bai Ye” who was about to flare up. He said, “Big Brother Bai, we can deal with the rest. You can return first. Senior Sister Lingyan is still waiting for you!” 

Bai Ye turned to glance at Bai Xiaofei then nodded. Then, he turned around and walked out. Of course, Bai Ye didn’t forget to glare fiercely at Mo Ka before leaving.

“Big Brother Fei! Big Brother Fei! That senior from before…” After Bai Ye left, Mo Ka was the first to come forward. The terror in his eyes didn’t have the slightest intention of dispersing.

Bai Xiaofei wasn’t brought over by the seniors, so he didn’t know what sort of “memorable” lesson the seniors that led the way had given the new students. But it seemed the lesson was still fresh within the memories of Mo Ka and the others.

In a nutshell, the seniors were now equivalent to devils in the eyes of all the new students!

“Don’t worry. Our relationship isn’t bad, not to mention you didn’t do it intentionally, so he won’t bear a grudge against you with me here.” Bai Xiaofei patted Mo Ka on the shoulder then officially stepped into his dormitory.

He looked around the room. There were a total of four beds: two by the window and two by the door. The only unclaimed bed was the one that was behind the door and in the worst location.

“Alas, I can’t do anything about it and can only sleep here.” Bai Xiaofei let out a long sigh and was just about to sit down, but Mo Ka pulled him up the second his butt was about to descend onto the bed.

“Big Brother Fei, how could you possibly sleep at a place like this? I’ve already made the bed over there. Our bedding is the same, and there isn’t any difference between them, so you can just go ahead and sleep there.” Mo Ka could be said to be quite perceptive of what to do, and he pulled Bai Xiaofei towards the bed by the window. At the same time, he secretly signaled to Shi Kui and Wu Chi to remove the traps they had placed on the bed behind the door.

If Bai Xiaofei were to really be hit by it, Mo Ka would surely be eternally doomed.

After Mo Ka sent Bai Xiaofei to the place he had selected carefully, the waves in his heart finally calmed down a bit.

“How could I do that?” Bai Xiaofei refused with his mouth, but his butt had already sat on the bed. “F*ck! Is our academy so generous? The quality of these free things is actually so good.” 

Bai Xiaofei patted the sheets, quite satisfied with the bed he had received for nothing.

“Brother, this isn’t free. A set of domestic articles costs a Starnet Stone…” the nearby Shi Kui interrupted, puzzling Bai Xiaofei.

“Starnet Stone? What’s that?” As soon as the question was asked, the expressions of Mo Ka and the others simultaneously revealed a trace of shock.

But, in next to no time, all three of them came to an understanding. Bai Xiaofei was ultimately sent over by someone, so he shouldn’t have experienced the extortion of the seniors.

“You surely know of Origin Stones, right?” Shi Kui spoke once more, this time mentioning an object Bai Xiaofei was familiar with.

Origin Stones were special rocks refined from ores containing origin energy. They had two uses on the continent. The first was as high level currency, and the second was to be used as “potions” for puppet masters and martial artists. Because the origin energy within Origin Stones possessed no attribute, anyone could absorb it without experiencing side effects.

But almost all the Origin Stone deposits on the continent were under the control of the various empires, so there were fairly limited amounts of Origin Stones circulating out of the empires.

“Of course.” Bai Xiaofei nodded, and at the same time, he had a rough guess about these Starnet Stones. Moreover, his guess was very quickly proven true.

“Starnet Stones are a strengthened version of Origin Stones. Besides Starnet Academy, there isn’t any other place on the continent that’s capable of producing this thing,” Shi Kui explained patiently, his eyes flickering with a trace of yearning.

Many people came to Starnet Academy for the sake of unique resources like the Starnet Stones, and there were even some people who accumulated a large amount of Starnet Stones here before earning a great deal of wealth elsewhere on the continent.

“Where can I get some? Why don’t I have any?” The acute Bai Xiaofei seemed to have grasped something, and he was so excited that he directly stood up from the bed and grabbed Shi Kui’s shoulders.

Dazed, Shi Kui spoke hesitantly. “When…when we registered ourselves, there was a jade token among the things the Senior Sister had given us. There are Starnet Stones within it, and the amount given was based on your results. You can check the amount by pouring your origin energy into the jade token.” 

In the next second, Bai Xiaofei started to search through his bag. Once he found the jade token, he poured his origin energy into it.

“F*ck! There are only two hundred here.” Bai Xiaofei threw the jade token aside with an expression of displeasure. On the other hand, Mo Ka and them had their jaws shocked open.

Two…two hundred?!
