The First Order

Chapter 15 - Promoting your own product

ust as Ren Xiaosu had predicted. Zhang Jinglin was not omniscient. He had some specialized knowledge, but the rest of his knowledge rested at a superficial level.

As such, Zhang Jinglin suddenly realized that he did not know how to refute Ren Xiaosu. In the end, he gave a wave of his hand. “Get ready for your class. The next period will be the survival lesson.”

Because Ren Xiaosu had tasted the sweetness on the first day he taught the class, he decided to prolong the lesson again until night fell before dismissing the class.

Some of the students still did not realize the kind of life they were going to live from now on.

After school, the students started walking out of the class. When Ren Xiaosu noticed that no one thanked him today, he could not help but take the initiative to ask, “Arent you guys going to thank your teachers?”

The students shuddered in fear as they collectively turned around and thanked their teachers.

However, Ren Xiaosu was utterly disappointed when he took a mental look at the palace. He did not gain even a single gratitude token coin.

Zhang Jinglin had already told him that it was quite normal for the students to not understand the teachers perspective. Ren Xiaosu felt that he still had a long way to go.

On their way back home that night, Ren Xiaosu could see that the lights were on in their shack from a distance away. He hurriedly went over and lifted the curtain door. When he stepped inside, he was surprised to see Xiaoyu sitting in their broken chair and sewing their clothes for them. There was even corn porridge and cooked wild vegetables next to her, which she had made for them.

They usually left their clothing in the shack since no one would steal them.

Even if someone stole the clothes, the thief would have to wear them out someday. Once they did that, they would get recognized. It would be a surprise if Ren Xiaosu did not beat the thief to death.

When Xiaoyu saw them return, she smiled and said, “Sorry that I came in without your permission. I saw that your clothes were ripped, so I decided to sew them up for you. Quick, eat dinner.”

Yan Liuyuan reached his hand out, wanting to scoop out some porridge. This meal was considered a luxury in town. Normally, they would only eat black bread or potatoes for their meals. However, Ren Xiaosu slapped Yan Liuyuans hand. “Have you thanked Big Sister Xiaoyu yet?”

Yan Liuyuan still behaved himself in front of Ren Xiaosu. “Thank you, Big Sister Xiaoyu.”

Xiaoyu quickly said, “Stop hitting Liuyuan.”

“I can spoil him now, but no one will spoil him when hes on his own,” Ren Xiaosu explained. Then he also said in a serious tone, “Thank you, Big Sister Xiaoyu.”

“Youre welcome.” Xiaoyu smiled and said, “What do you two usually like having for dinner?”

Yan Liuyuan said, “We dont usually eat dinner.”

“How can that do? Youre both still growing,” Xiaoyu said.

For some reason, Ren Xiaosu suddenly felt that Xiaoyu should have been their sister all this while. No one would say such words to them in the past.

“Big Sister Xiaoyu,” Ren Xiaosu asked, “your sewing skills are great. Why dont you come over and help us when our knife wound clinic opens for business?”

“A knife wound clinic?” Xiaoyu was stunned. “Why do you suddenly want to open a clinic that specializes in knife wounds?”

“Because I have a medicinal herb formula for treating knife wounds. It can reduce inflammation and help wounds heal quicker.” After Ren Xiaosu finished, he showed the wound on his hand to her. Xiaoyu took a look at it and noticed that Ren Xiaosus wound had already formed into a scab.

Xiaoyu thought for a moment and said, “But there are much fewer fights happening in town these days. In the past, more than ten people would get injured each day, but only one person gets injured every few days now.”

This was indeed true. Excluding the person killed by Ren Xiaosu and the man at the clinic entrance yesterday, it seemed that there were really no fights happening recently.

The cases of night break-ins werent counted because there wouldnt be any survivors left most of the time.

Ren Xiaosu pondered it for a moment. “Why dont I go and chop some people up?” He quickly shook his head.

At the same time, Yan Liuyuan was shocked. “Bro, arent you being too ruthless? What is this? Promoting your own product?”

“No, no, we cant do such things. We mustnt get carried away by our own interests.”
