Chapter 636: Meet an Old Friend
Chen Fan left Mount Yan once he finished teaching Ye Qincang the basics of Immortal Cultivation. He reckoned that the trip was worthwhile after all, since he had not only learned the secrets of the Deity Burial Valley and the Gate of Heaven, but he had also secured Ye Qincang's help.
Ye Qincang was the symbol of the powerful Kunlun, so he was bound to be a useful ally.
The North Qiong Sect will be able to grow its feathers under Kunlun's protection. In addition, Kunlun's resourcefulness would make Chen Fan's quest for Immortals much easier.
"I've heard that every time the Gate of Heaven opens, chaos ensues. The immortal cultivators from the Gate of Heaven seem to be much more powerful than their mortal counterparts and once they cross the gate, they usher in destruction to the world, annihilating even the most powerful sects. They are powerful Immortal State Warriors, well versed in the ways of Immortal Cultivation," Chen Fan thought to himself.
The only Immortal Cultivator he had met ever since he was reincarnated was Sword Secret the Exalted Cultivator and he had read his Sword Art of Nine Abandonments. Although the sword art was far from being advanced, it was an Immortal Cultivation art nonetheless.
Ye Qincang's Dharma Cultivation stemmed from the primordial art of the Mixed-Essence Sect; it could not compare with the real Immortal Cultivation methods.
"That being said, however powerful they are, I will utterly destroy them if they mess with me," Chen Fan said as his eyes glinted.
Although Chen Fan had learned the location of the Deity Burial Valley, he wasn't planning on visiting it just yet.
He had just been engaged and thought that he should spend more time with Fang Qiong and travel around the world. Meanwhile, he would keep his eyes peeled for any opportunities to level up during his travels.
"Li Changsheng said that his Ancestral Master had recorded multiple possible locations for the Gate of Heaven. Any one of those locations could have a surprise waiting for me. Maybe my hope for leveling up again lies in one of those spots."
As Chen Fan thought to himself, he suddenly realized that he had arrived at a university.
His eyes found the plaque hanging above the entrance.
"Yan Jin Film College"
"Why am I here? Ah! right, this is Xu Rongfei's school. She should be in her fourth year now. I wanted to visit her ever since Xu Ao's death, but other things kept on getting in the way," Chen Fan thought to himself wistfully.
He still felt guilty for what had happened.
Both Auntie Tang and Xu Rongfei had been nice to him. Xu Ao had also been one of his most trusted confidants before his death. If not for him, the Hong Sect and Lin Tashan would have never killed Xu Ao.
"Since I am already here, I might as well visit my old friend."
Without using his Divine Will, Chen Fan walked into the school with thumbs tucked in his pockets.
The Yan Jin Film College was the breeding ground for Chinese celebrities. It's alumni included many renowned actors and directors. Any aspiring student could be a rising star in the future. To attend the school was also the dream of many teenagers in China.
Chen Fan was using the appearance of the Azure Thearch Longevity Body. His long black hair flowed to his shoulders, contrasting with the clean white shirt he was wearing. His tall and handsome appearance had tugged the heartstrings of many girls around the campus.
"Uh? That stud looks familiar. He is even more handsome than Wu Lufeng."
"Is he from our school? Maybe he is from the faculty of acting? Why haven't I seen him before?"
"What do you think? Should I give him my number?"
Many attractive young girls wearing fashionable clothing and carefully made up faces giggled and whispered with each other, glancing at Chen Fan from time to time.
A handsome man was just as a luring sight to girls as a gorgeous bombshell to young men.
By then, Chen Fan had shed some of his youthful appearance, replacing it with a manly and imposing demeanor; it made his already perfect look sublime.
It wasn't long before the girls started to approach him, trying to strike up a conversation.
However, Chen Fan's impassive expression had deterred them from flirting with him.
Even as another girl was about to walk away with disappointment, Chen Fan spoke up and asked her in a warm voice, "Do you know where Xu Rongfei's dorm is?"
The girl was elated by Chen Fan's attention, however, she looked disheartened all over again as soon as she heard Xu Rongfei's name.
"He is here for Xu Rongfei."
"I bet he's just one of Sister Xu's pursuers. No wonder we've never seen him around here."
"There goes my chance of dating a babe magnet."
The group of girls looked disappointed and sad.
One of them quickly gathered herself and walked over to Chen Fan with a healthy dose of confidence. She was wearing glamorous makeup, a red sweater and black yoga pants with beige boots.
"Are you looking for Sister Xu? She's been taking a lot of gigs recently but she is free now since it's the winter break. She stays in dorm number five, I can take you there."
"That would be wonderful."
Chen Fan nodded as a pang of guilt rose inside of him.
Home must have reminded Xu Rongfei of many tragedies, so she had decided to stay at school during the spring festival.
Chen Fan's guide introduced herself while they walked toward Xu Rongfei's dorm.
Her name was Zhang Haiyun, and she was the chairwoman of the Student Arts Council. She would have to be the cream of the crop to secure that position, therefore, it spoke loudly of her talents.
Zhang Haiyun thought that Chen Fan would be impressed by her introduction, but to her surprise, Chen Fan nodded and kept his silence.
"Despite the ordinary clothing he wears, he carries a surprisingly unswerving calm and impassiveness about him that would make even the elite heirs of Yan Jin pale in comparison. He must be someone important."
Zhang Haiyun thought to herself as the smile on her face turned brighter.
"Are you seeing Sister Xu? She is quite popular among the rich heirs you know. The dorm manager told me that she throws away a bucketful of roses each day. I heard that Young Lord Wu, the son of the Tian He Entertainment's owner, is also interested in her."
Zhang Haiyun probed Chen Fan passive aggressively.
Of late, Tian He Entertainment had surpassed Hua Yi Entertainment, becoming the most influential company in the industry.
Chen Fan didn't mind at all.
His indifference had made Zhang Haiyun hesitate a little.
Was Chen Fan putting on that pretentious air to mask his insecurity, or was he really that confident?
It wasn't long before they reached dorm number five.
Lo and behold, there were many luxury cars in the parking lot, and the most ostentatious one was a silver Lamborghini with an outrageously large spoiler. Not all of the rich heirs were there for Xu Rongfei, some were the rich boyfriends of other young starlets.
"That Lamborghini belongs to Young Lord Wu. It's worth more than twenty million," Zhang Haiyun said.
However, her remak didn't seem to pique Chen Fan's attention. She added, "I will try to ask her to come and see you, but I won't make any promises. Even Young Lord Wu has been waiting here for hours and he's still waiting."
"Tell her that her old friend Chen Fan is here," Chen Fan said.
He could sense her presence even without using Divine Will.
Zhang Haiyun started off.
Many girls walked past the dorm and were stunned by Chen Fan's sublime appearance. Many of them even attempted to ask for his number. The commotion made enough of a disturbance to alert the residents of the building, and many more girls peeked out of their windows. They saw a handsome young man surrounded by a group of girls.
Meanwhile, the men waiting in luxury cars were glaring at Chen Fan with jealousy.
"I'm driving the best car and wearing the most expensive watch, but I still can't compare with a pretty boy." A fat middle-aged man grunted under his breath.
Even the handsome young heirs felt they had been outdone by Chen Fan.
An attractive young girl wearing a tank top pushed open the window and then shouted at her dorm mate, "Fei Fei! Look! There is a real stud down there. Xiao Ya and Ermao are both going to ask him for his number. "
"Ningxin, close the window. Do you want everyone to see you in that skanky tank top?"
Xu Rongfei was sitting on a chair with her legs folded while reading a book.
"Humph! Why would I care? They are lucky that I'm not charging them for the view." Ningxin snorted.
She landed her gaze on the book Xu Rongfei was reading, and she wasn't impressed by the title.
"Sutra of Huang Ting? Come on! I really think there's an old man living inside of you. Did you hear what I just said? THERE IS A STUD!"
Xu Rongfei cracked a smile.
Her appearance had aged well like a fine wine. Her body had gained more curves while her face was more elegant.
The unique charm she had about her was approved by many heavy-weight directors.
Zhang Haiyun emerged into the room while Ningxin kept on yelling at Xu Rongfei.
"Sister Xu Rongfei? There's a guy called Chen Fan who wants to see you. He said he's an old friend of yours."
The book fell from Xu Rongfei's hand.
She was stunned by the development and found it hard to believe what she had heard.
