“It’s still early.”
Standing at the door of the cigarette store, Chen Yu flicked away his cigarette, but he didn’t go in.
The cigarette store only opened at nine.
There was still an hour and a half left until then, so he decided to go do something more important.
After walking along the sidewalk for about five or six hundred meters, Chen Yu walked into a martial arts school.
In this highly militarized world, there were so many martial arts schools that it was simply impossible to keep count of them all.
It could be compared to the number of cram schools in the world of his previous life.
So long as you had enough strength, you could open and operate a school.
The country would even offer considerable preferential policies.
Each year, there were many students who failed to pass the college entrance examination and get admitted into a university. But with the help of martial arts schools, they would break through level 1 and officially become full-fledged warriors within a few years.
It could be considered as a system of supplementary education under the existing government system.
Walking through the doors of the martial arts school, Chen Yu systematically took out a hundred bucks, put it on the counter, and said, “Open a test room for me.”
“Number 3 is empty.” The man behind the counter took the money and gave him his change of fifty yuan.
Walking across the corridor to where Test Room Number 3 was, Chen Yu went into the room and closed the door behind him. Then, he sat on a piece of chair-like equipment and started to cultivate.
As his internal strength circulated within his body, the equipment’s display screen immediately flashed, showing the destructive wind level in Chen Yu’s body.
[Warrior level: 0.38]
[Rating: Not up to standard]
“There are still exactly 30 days until the college entrance examination. Reaching Level 1 shouldn’t be a problem.”
Chen Yu stood up, walked over to another piece of sandbag-like equipment, and powered up both his legs. Then, he twisted his body at the waist and swung his right fist out in a fierce strike!
[Warrior level: 0.71]
[Rating: Not up to standard]
“One punch has the strength of a Level 0.7 warrior, does it…”
Retracting his fist, he rubbed his swollen, painful joints. This time, he mobilized all the internal strength in his body and then once again threw a forceful punch!
[Warrior level: 0.92]
[Rating: Not up to standard]
“That is to say, my current strength is close to a Level 1 warrior’s. Even if I took the college entrance examination now, I could make it into a first-tier key university.”
The corners of his mouth curved upwards into an uncontrollable smile.
“There are still 30 days left. I can do it, I can do it…”
Next, Chen Yu went on to test his other abilities like bouncing, agility, resistance to hits, and reflexes.
His overall and strength scores were comparable.
Based on physical qualities alone, he could already beat those so-called top performers in Class Two of the Senior Three Cohort hands-down.
Adding the use of his internal strength, it would almost be like bullying children.
“This radiation is really marvelous stuff…”
Leaving the martial arts school, he went back to the street at the back of the cigarette store. While allowing his mind to freely conjure thoughts about how he would show his prowess in the college entrance examination, which was going to take place 30 days from now, he leaped and found his footing on the edge of the bedroom window on the second floor. Then, he flipped over and entered the store.
But the moment he landed, he was dumbfounded.
The sight that greeted him was that of a big bed with Sister Qi lying lazily in the middle wearing hollow-out silk pajamas. She was using her slender left hand to apply nail polish to the fingertips of her right.
Chen Yu: “…” (speechless)
Panic, he looked to his left and to his right, nearly on the verge of tears.
He had flipped into the wrong house…
“You…” Sister Qi yawned and tilted her head slightly, revealing the fairness of her full bosom, and said, “Are you here to pick flowers?”
Chen Yu: “…” (speechless)
[Mental damage inflicted: Mental state +5]
Sister Qi asked, “Then what are you waiting for? Come on!”
[Mental damage inflicted: Mental state +7]
Sister Qi asked, “Am I not beautiful?”
Chen Yu answered, “Sister, I entered the wrong house.”
“It’s understandable to enter the wrong house.” Sister Qi straightened up and looked in the direction of the window, then said, “But can you explain why you chose to enter through the window?”
“I… err…” Chen Yu willed himself to calm down and reign in his emotions. Then he said, “I went out for a morning run and was afraid that I would make noise and disturb your sleep if I went in through the front door. So, I thought of jumping through the window.”
“Is that so? And you think I’ll believe you?”
“Of course I’ll believe you.” Sister Qi suddenly smiled and went up to pat Chen Yu on the shoulder, saying, “Look at how scared you are.”
“Ha.” Chen Yu returned her smile and said, “The two windows look the same. I wasn’t paying attention and jumped through the wrong one.”
“Next time, you can just walk in through the front door. My room is soundproof.”
“Next time I will, for sure.”
“Then you can go out now. Next time, please make sure you get the right room before entering.”
“Ok!” Chen Yu left hurriedly as if to flee.
Turning her head to look out the window, there was a deep look in Sister Qi’s eyes, yet no one knew what she was thinking…
Putting on a brave front, Chen Yu joined Sister Qi for breakfast, after which, he quickly washed up the cutlery and plates before heading down to man the store.
Around ten o’clock, Sister Qi came downstairs with her coat draped over her shoulders and said, “I’m going to visit some schools.”
Chen Yu replied, “Thank you for going through the trouble for me. Take care.”
“Right.” When she reached the door, Sister Qi turned her head and asked, “If those high schools that I visit today aren’t willing to take you in, what will you do? Do you really want to go to other cities to try your luck?”
“If none of them will take me… then I’ll think about it.”
“Ok. Well… also…” Sister Qu raised her brow and said, “Why do I feel that… compared to yesterday, you’re different today?”
“Maybe it’s because I washed my face today…”
“emmmm… little brother, something’s not quite right with you.” That said, she winked, pushed open the door, and left, her high heels click-clacking away.
Chen Yu, on the other hand, was sitting behind the counter, “shivering with fear.”
“This woman doesn’t appear to be someone who can be easily fooled…”
Sighing, he took out the three thousand dollars in cash and threw it into the cash register.
Then, he took out three boxes of Harbin (Filter Cigarettes) from the counter.
There were only 30 days left before the college entrance examination.
In order to boost his strength as much as possible, he was preparing himself fast and furiously.
He found a blind spot that couldn’t be captured by the surveillance camera and hid himself there. Then, he moved all the cigarettes away from the counter, not leaving a single one behind Poking his head into the cabinet, he pulled out ten cigarettes at one go, wrapped them together with tape, then stuffed them all into his mouth.
The flame of the light slowly pulsated under the pressure of the heavy air around it, making a crisp sound
All ten cigarettes were lit.
Chen Yu tugged with both hands, and the sliding door of the glass cabinet was clamped around his neck, ensuring that not a trace of smoke could escape.
“I’m a f*cking genius.”

[Subjected to an attack by malignant gases: Lung heath +14; Physical health +13; Physique +13; Immunity +15; Teeth Whiteness +2; Fertility +2…]
“This smoke is really satisfying. Even fertility has been added to the list.”
[Subjected to an attack by malignant gases: Internal strength +170]
[Subjected to an attack by malignant gases: Internal strength +173]
[Subjected to an attack by malignant gases: Internal strength +178]
[Subjected to an attack by malignant gases: Lung health +16; Physical health…]
Because the glass cover was sealed, both the smoke coming from the cigarette and the smoke coming from his mouth were all gathered inside the cabinet, and the only exchange of smoke was in and out of Chen Yu’s throat.
Second hand, third hand, fourth hand, as well as fifth hand smoke were circulating all around him, causing his internal strength to skyrocket wildly.
By the time he’d finished off all ten cigarettes, the counter was already enshrouded by a thick cloud of smoke. Even Chen Yu’s head was obscured from view.
But even when the n-hand smoke didn’t dissipate, the increase in his internal strength was still as violent and relentless!

A few minutes later, a female customer pushed open the door of the shop and walked in. She looked around and wondered, “Hmm? Where is everyone?”
Chen Yu immediately poked his head out of the cloud of smoke surrounding him and asked, “What do you want to buy?”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
“Holy crap!” The female customer was startled. She looked at Chen Yu, then looked at the glass cabinet that was filled with thick, dense smoke, and fled in disbelief.
“Lunatic,” Chen Yu said.
Then, he stuck his head back in the cabinet…
