The one grabbing Xiao Yao was a palm that was wrinkled because of its age. An ominous aura rose in Xiao Yao's heart. Following the direction of his hand, what appeared before his eyes was a similarly aged face.
With his eyes locked on the target, Hao Zizai's mouth opened wide, big enough for an egg to fit inside. This was because the person grabbing him was none other than the old man sitting opposite him who had been adding money with him all this time.
After a long while, he realized that he was the one who had been caught red-handed. He scratched his head with his free left hand in embarrassment and quickly changed the topic, "About that …" Great, great! "
The surrounding people were all stunned by Xiao Yao's words. They didn't sense it at all. Otherwise, when they heard how Xiao Yao changed the topic, who knew how many people would burst out laughing on the spot.
However, this old man's cultivation was obviously very high. He did not buy Xiao Yao's trick and instead went straight to the point. "Little rascal, I didn't expect you to be a member of the special ability clan!"
"Hehe, lucky, lucky!" Seeing the old man's aggressive attitude, Xiao Yao used his ultimate technique, smiling mischievously. No matter how much you asked, I just foolishly laughed and didn't want to discuss the main topic with you. To put it bluntly, I was playing a rascal.
The old man continued with Xiao Yao's trick, "Little guy, don't you know that the Alchemy Alliance has banned the use of abilities to disturb the life of humans? "If you are caught by the enforcement team, I'm afraid that with your meager superpower, you will become a Muggle!"
"I don't want to take advantage of the situation. Today, I'll just treat it as an old bastard bullying me. Anyway, after today, whoever I love will be the one to suffer!" He cursed Xiao Yao in his heart, but the smile on his face did not decrease in the slightest, "Yes …." "You're right, young man. You must be careful in the future."
In truth, if one were to carefully analyze this seemingly serious confession, it could be said to be filled with flaws. However, the old man didn't pay much attention to Xiao Yao's words. This was because experts usually used a simple special technique, Mind Reading.
"Stinking brat, you dare to insult me?" As he spoke, the old man grabbed Xiao Yao's hand and exerted a little strength. A bone cracking pain instantly stimulated Xiao Yao's nerves.
Xiao Yao was not an idiot. Being this alert, he immediately understood that this old man had a mind reading technique that even Dan Teng did not know. He hurriedly calmed himself down, gritted his teeth, and forced himself not to shout out loud: "This brat didn't say anything just now, Master … … Your... That was … "Phantom!"
"Hmph, at least you're smart. I'll let you off this time!" As soon as Xiao Yao's hand was released by the old man, a deep red mark appeared on his wrist.
As he gently stroked his swollen wrist, Xiao Yao didn't dare to let his thoughts run wild. He pulled a bitter face and said, "Great sir, what do you think we should do? I will listen to you!"
However, the old man replied without even asking, "From the looks of it, you should be a student of the Hundred Treasures Academy!"
"No …" No, Hundred Treasures Academy is the first ranked school on the road, how could I possibly be? " Xiao Yao did not even need to think to say this as he waved his hands repeatedly.
There was no need to think about it, he had to hide it from the end. If this matter had already reached the school, then he really wouldn't be able to raise his head. It was even as serious as the old man said, no one would find it strange if he was expelled.
He did not pursue the matter any further and pointed to the opposite side. "Go back, since you want to bet it's fair, go back to your seat and we can continue to play!"
He didn't expect that the old man would let him off so easily. Xiao Yao even thought that he had misheard him. However, no matter what, he immediately rushed back to his seat. He thought to himself that as a man, he would be able to submit. With a single thought, he rapidly recovered all those who were locked in place.
Just when the dealer's hands reached out to the two of them, indicating them to open up their cards, Xiao Yao suddenly made a shocking gesture.
Seeing the old man touch the card with his palm, Xiao Yao, who had a smile on his face, extended his hand as well. But the difference was, what Xiao Yao extended his hand towards him was his card with his own hand.
Xiao Yao, who was the last to arrive, used a lightning fast speed to grab onto his own card and took a swipe. At the same time, his gaze stopped in front of the old man: "I give up!"
Xiao Yao's action undoubtedly caused an uproar. The originally stifling atmosphere that caused everyone's spirits to be tensed up was instantly broken at this moment.
It wasn't like they hadn't seen anyone give up their cards before, but this was the first time they had seen someone give up their cards before seeing the other side play.
Ignoring the shocked gazes of the crowd, Xiao Yao smiled apologetically at the old man. Then, he tossed his head and left in the position that she thought he was the most handsome.
"This little guy is really interesting!" Apart from Xiao Yao, the only other person that would know about the mystery was most likely this elder.
That was because the old man knew in his heart that his trump card was actually a five. As for the last thing he wanted to win, it was a seven and not the last ten. However, no matter what, Xiao Yao had not failed the last gamble he had made after abandoning the He family's currency.
After leaving the casino, Xiao Yao immediately felt the world spinning around in his head. Having experienced a fainting fit, he forcefully endured his dizziness and quickly walked to his room, only to immediately fall unconscious on the bed.
The moment Xiao Yao fainted, an entire night had passed. It wasn't until the second day that the door was knocked. In the end, the door was forced to burst open and Xiao Yao was forced to enter.
Xiao Yao shook his dizzy head. Despite Xiao Yao's unwillingness, he still followed him onto the road. Sweet 'n' Sour Town was indeed not far from Hundred Treasures Academy. Even though the two of them were walking leisurely, they still arrived at the academy before noon.
The fact that the Hundred Treasures Academy could be called the number one academy on the road of special abilities was indeed not a false reputation. However, the area the campus occupied wasn't any less than Sweet Town. The design of the school gate was especially beautiful, and it didn't lose out to the simplicity of the campus. Even Xiao Yao, who knew nothing about buildings, could not help but secretly nod his head.
In the Hundred Treasures Academy, Dan Teng was definitely one of those teachers who had old qualifications. Thus, he had carried Xiao Yao along with him as he went through the registration formalities with ease and familiarity. After paying the entrance fee, Xiao Yao was officially accepted into the academy after receiving an academy badge.
After what had happened, under the guidance of Dan Teng, Xiao Yao circled around the entire academy, taking an entire afternoon. Fortunately, he had an impression of the academy.
As the school hadn't officially started, Xiao Yao, who hadn't been assigned to a residence yet, could only squeeze in with Dan Teng for the time being.
The next morning, Xiao Yao was sent to a classroom. Due to Xiao Yao's sudden arrival, the originally noisy classroom instantly quieted down.
As soon as Dan Teng left, the students in the classroom stood up in unison. As a hooligan in his previous life, Xiao Yao suddenly had a bad premonition.
