Urban Martial Arts System - Chapter 25
Chapter 25: First in the Province
Baojin Restaurant was the best restaurant in the city. Seeing that it was almost noon, the manager of the hotel led a group of employees that was standing anxiously at the door.
“He is coming. He will be here soon,” a male employee in a restaurant uniform shouted.
“Here?” In a good mood, the manager pointed to an employee and said, “Hurry up and call the big boss. They’re coming here.”
“Why would I wait for you to send someone to call me?” As soon as the manager finished, he found that his big boss had come. “Cheer up! Today we are receiving the real elites of the city. ”
The big boss took a deep breath. “The exam for the university had finished in the morning. Almost at the same time, the results came out. Under the city leaders’ leadership, the future geniuses are having a banquet.” The big boss paused. “Besides, Young Master Zhou who has broken through the seven barriers will also come.”
The employees were also blushing. It was the day for the banquet for martial arts talents the city government was holding. Those who came were either leaders or future talents. If somebody caught the eyes or even made the tiniest relation to any who was present, it could greatly help their future.
“Especially Young Master Zhou! He is so strong that he not only surpassed the Seven Major Barriers, but also broke all the records. It is also said that Young Master Zhou is from the Yanping Zhou family!” What was the Yanping Zhou family? Maybe these ordinary employees didn’t know, but now the information had developed. As long as little research was done, they could understand it.
Top domestic giants! Military and political giants!
Young Master Zhou was one of the nobles who must not be missed!
Some beautiful female employees quietly unbuttoned their collars, showing a white landscape. Some of the male employees also showed their most handsome and cool side.
“I will skin anybody that will make a mess today!” The big boss said to the employees. Then, he smiled and stood in front of the store.
Soon, a group of police cars appeared in front of the restaurant.
“Quickly, quickly. Light the firecrackers. Keep playing. The sound can’t stop!” The big boss told the manager.
The sound of firecrackers resounded, and police cars entered the underground parking lot in an orderly manner. Several cars stopped in front of the restaurant, and many leaders alighted.
“Welcome! Welcome to our humble store. The store is really brilliant.” The big boss straightened his waist, smiled, and shook hands with the leaders, putting on his kindest smile.
“Boss Zhao, if your restaurant is a small shop, wouldn’t all other restaurants in our city be roadside stalls? Boss Zhao is too modest.” Mayor Wu stood in front of Boss Zhao.
“Hahaha. Please take a seat, everyone. Everything is ready.”
Boss Zhao was also a rich man, and he didn’t flatter the leaders. What he valued more was those martial arts masters. Youth was the capital of everything. Youth and talent was the biggest and best capital worthy of anyone’s investment.
“No hurry, our protagonist for today hasn’t arrived yet.” Mayor Wu waved his hand.
“Young Master Zhou?” Boss Zhao glanced at the crowd and asked.
“Yes! Young Master Zhou has broken through the Seven Major Barriers in our city. This is the honor of our city!” Mayor Wu sighed.
“It’s so late and I haven’t arrived yet, so everyone is waiting for me. It’s really grand.” As soon as Mayor Wu’s voice fell, a discordant voice followed. Mayor Wu and Boss Zhao’s eyes followed the voice.
“Who is this…” Boss Zhao frowned, thinking of the rare geniuses that were bothering him. Of course, those who were called rare geniuses were actually just a group of seventeen or eighteen years old.
“This is Shu Liangcai. He came in first in the entire province in this exam.” Mayor Wu frowned and introduced him to Boss Zhao.
“No. 1 in the province. No wonder…” Boss Zhao’s eyes flashed a little. First in the province, it was definitely rare among rare geniuses. In previous years, being the no. 1 in the province was enough to be the focus of attention. Even if Mayor Wu met him, he had to be polite.
But now, everyone was talking about Young Master Zhou. Everyone praised Young Master Zhou. As for the first in the province? It’s useless even if you were No. 1 in the country!
After all, even if it was the first in the country, there was one every year. However, there were only a handful of people who could break through the seven barriers.
“Young Master Zhou has broken through the Seven Major Barriers. He is a true peerless genius.” Boss Zhao casted a glance at Shu Liangcai.
That was meant to remind Shu Liangcai. You are the number one in the province, but you’re only the number one in the province. Compared with the seven levels, you are still too far.
“Peerless genius?” Shu Liangcai raised his brows and stood up unconvinced.
“Boss Zhao, what is the ranking of Young Master Zhou in this exam?”
“This…” Boss Zhao froze for a moment and looked at Mayor Wu.
“Young Master Zhou only reported one test score, so he is not ranked.” Mayor Wu had read Zhou Ping’s test scores a long time ago. Even the one that Zhou Ping reported was still 60 points. “Young Master Points”.
“Not to mention the ranking, Young Master Zhou missed the exam?” Shu Liangcai sneered.
“A person who doesn’t even have a performance ranking deserves to be a peerless genius’?”
Isn’t he worthy of being called a “peerless genius” after passing the seven levels? You are just a provincial champion, who isn’t worthy to be compared to Young Master Zhou, who has passed the seven levels?
All the leaders looked at Shu Liangcai speechlessly. They looked at him like they were looking at a fool. Shu Liangcai had no real knowledge, thinking that what he said was reasonable.
“I don’t know if this province’s champion has passed the Seven Major Barriers?” Boss Zhao couldn’t help it. Without giving any face, he asked directly.
“I’m going to make it too, but I have to take the exam first, so I was one step behind Young Master Zhou.” Shu Liangcai’s face was calm. “But it’s okay to let Young Master Zhou go do the exam first. My grades will overwhelm him, then I will appear to be great.”
“Your grades surpass Young Master Zhou?” This time, even Mayor Wu couldn’t help it.
“Not only did Young Master Zhou set a new record for the seven levels, but they couldn’t even bring anything for the seventh level. How can you say that your performance can surpass Young Master Zhou?”
“Rely on my test result.” Shu Liangcai looked proud.
“I am not less talented than anyone, and I work harder than anyone. I am confident that I will live my life and will not lose to others.”
“Moron…” Boss Zhao shook his head and sighed.
“You… How dare you look down on me!” Shu Liangcai pointed at Boss Zhao’s nose when he heard what he said.
“I know that my background is ordinary and not as good as Young Master Zhou. As such, you are all flattering Young Master Zhou.”
“But don’t forget, thirty years east and thirty years West, don’t deceive young people who are poor,” Shu Liangcai shouted angrily.
Suddenly, a terrifying roar resounded. Shu Liangcai shuddered, staggering a few steps and almost fell.
