Crystal Constellations

Why Is This Offer So Scam-Like?


This middle-aged attractive Tu Weiping guy… was he like the leader of some scam circle…?

Moving onto the second slide, after a 10 second transition where the projected slide had to spiral onto the screen like a star, Tu Weiping jumped into his explanation, his tone and face changing to a much more official look, ”As the formal sect leader of the Starlight Lake Sect, we offer you a position as a direct disciple of the sect. ”

”This entails a multitude of benefits, I would go into them right now but I have a feeling you wouldn really understand it. So, to keep it brief, youll have first priority for support, amazing resources to aid your cultivation, and also you don have to take the sect entrance test.What will you be doing during the entrance test period then if you accept, you ask? ”

Songmei did not in fact have this question in her head, but Tu Weiping continued on, answering his own rhetorical question.

Songmei also knew that Tu Weiping had definitely rehearsed this slideshow before, there were fancy hand motions, dramatic button clicks, clear signs that he was trying to not move while presenting. The whole school presentation vibe was all there.

”So, you shouldve received some official documentation from the association about the score you got, right? Its a bunch of confusing stuff, yeah… I barely even understand it now. ” Tu Weiping confessed.

Beginning to have a multitude of questions pop up in her head like pesky mushrooms, Songmei began to ask herself if this guy knew what he was doing, How was this guy the sect leader?

She knew he was probably legit because the head lady wouldve checked and there was the official seal, id card and everything laid out on the table, but this really felt like a scam…

Changing the slide with the use of another 10 second long transition, Weiping detailed the entry process should Songmei accept the offer. ”Youll go through our interview process, not to decide whether you get in or not. Thats a simple yes or no. But itll help us decide which elder would be best to support you. We, as a sect that cares highly about staying ahead, treat direct disciples a little like adoption. I know this is kinda ironic considering we
e in an orphanage right now, but we try to match you with an elder that will not only guide you along your cultivation, but also be like a parent, uncle, grandparent, or older sibling to you. ”

Songmei stayed quiet and maintained her poker face, but in her mind, she was impressed. On the slides that suffered from the transitions—Songmei swore could practically hear the slideshow screaming in agony—there was a detailed list of benefits, accommodations, along with what to expect should she accept.

Listening along, the slideshow continued on for another 15 minutes, Songmei had listened and paid attention, but even though the content was gripping and could change her life, by the end she wanted to collapse on the ground.


On EVERY slide!!

Told that the head lady had a way to contact the sect once she made her decision, Songmei walked out of the conference room with a little information booklet while also being a little lightheaded. There was so much information… and her future could depend on her choices.

No, her future kinda did entirely depend on what choice she made.

… ugh

Maybe asking the head lady for some advice would be good…

Walking past a circle of couches, Songmei saw that the elders that had been shooed away were… actually playing a game about bricklaying…

A bolt of lightning, an idea.

Songmei leaned down over the couch, nudging the shoulder of the youngest looking elder. ”Please… please fix the sect leaders slides… ”

”Transitions? ”

”… Every slide… ”

”Not again, well get on it. I offer you my sincerest apologies for sitting through that… ”
