Fei Fei and Lulu are at Wu Yan & co's villa. They were here to bid them farewell.
Lulu wiped away her snot and tears. However, she just couldn't stop crying.
After half an hour, she still has enough reserve to weep for Wu Yan & co. Meanwhile, the ones who wanted to leave felt tired after trying their best to cheer her up.
"Man, she must be really sad to cry this much..."
Kotori munched on her candy with twitching lips. She heard about how Wu Yan met with Lulu and she couldn't but feel like Wu Yan glossed over his encounter with her, after all, her tears were genuine.
She understood why the other girls treated her like a cute mascot and a worthy rival at the same time.
"Ara, I like girls her type..."
Kurumi touched her chin before adding another comment.
"But, isn't she crying a tad too much?"
Because Lulu wouldn't stop crying, they stayed behind to cheer her up, it wouldn't be dandy to leave a girl in tears like this.
More than that...
Astrea and Tohka were crying hysterically with Lulu. The others felt strength leaving their body when they saw this.
Hinagiku's eyebrows twitched as she put on an awkward smile.
"Why are you girls sad too?"
Astrea and Tohka looked at Hinagiku with tears rolling down their cheeks. While sobbing, they replied with relative ease.
"I don't know..."
"Y-you don't know..."
Kotori wasn't sure where to begin reorting.
"You don't even know why you're sad but you're crying nonetheless?..."
Astrea and Tohka bit their handkerchiefs while rubbing their cheeks with the unbitten parts.
"I don't know, when I see Lulu crying I feel sad too..."
Lulu and the two crying girls stopped for a second and then they cried again. They hugged each other like friends who are going to part for the last time.
Wu Yan, Fei Fei, and his other partners all looked at the crying trio. He shrugged as he reckons this will continue for another half an hour at the very least.
Hinagiku raise her hands.
"They aren't planning on doing this the entire day, right?"
"Do-don't suggest something so scary!"
Kotori shivelled. She pulled Wu Yan who had a 囧 look away.
"Don't just stand around and watch, think of something, I don't want to stand here listening to them cry!"
Wu Yan almost fell down, he steadied himself and he beamed at the three girls.
"Gi-girls, can we put a stop to this? If we continue like this we won't make it to the Giant Beast Forest before sunset."
The three girls finally put a sock in it. Instead, they looked at Wu Yan with teary eyes filled with judgment, as if they are looking at an unsensitive brute. Wu Yan's head started feeling numb when he sensed this.
Fei Fei pulled Lulu away from Astrea and Tohka.
"They are just going on an adventure, stop crying like this, you're going to jinx them..."
Fei Fei's words were effective at shutting Lulu. Her shoulders are still twitching but she stopped crying. She took Fei Fei's words to heart. Astrea and Tohka also pursed her lips, although tears are still rolling down their faces. Their childish antics almost made them laugh out loud.
"It's about time..."
Wu Yan looked at the sky. He gave Fei Fei and Lulu a bright smile.
"Maa, we will see each other again. Don't forget to train hard or we will leave you in the dust..."
Lulu puffed her cheeks while Fei Fei grinned.
"I know you guys have frightening cultivation speed but it won't be so easy to leave us behind like that!"
The others all giggled.
"That's the Sister Fei Fei I know!"
Wu Yan praised her. Scratching his cheek, he went over to Lulu's front and he gave her a tight hug.
Lulu's eyes widened as his manly scent entered her nasal cavities. She immediately blushed as red as an apple.
"You're already so big, stop giving Sister Fei Fei troubles to deal with..."
Wu Yan rubbed her head while chortling.
"N-no, I don't..."
Lulu sounded meek when she protested. Wu Yan released her and he opened his arms wide with a cheeky grin.
"Sister Fei Fei, how about a parting hug?"
Fei Fei blushed while pursing her lips.
She sounded reluctant but she still hugged Wu Yan with a tinge of pink on her cheeks. Wu Yan chuckled and the girls behind him beamed too.
Wu Yan went back to his company.
"Until the next time!"
Fei Fei and Lulu nodded.
When Wu Yan was about to summon Fraxinus, somebody called out to him.
Led by faction heads, students in uniform came like a rallied army. They surrounded the villa area.
"What's going on?"
Fei Fei and Lulu gasped. Meanwhile, Wu Yan & co furrowed their brows.
Behind the sea of students, more came as if they were reinforcements, they parted way for their leaders. All the factional leaders were present, including the imperial factions.
Jaafar, Sylph, and Kaya stood at the forefront.
"What is this?"
Fei Fei tensed up her expression.
Wu Yan shrugged with narrowed eyes.
"Isn't this farewell party too big?"
Jaafar stared straight at Wu Yan. His booming voice could be heard for miles.
"I heard about your graduation, it will be hard to meet you again after you go..."
"That's why I want to challenge you to a duel!"
"I am not going to let you go unless you defeat me in duel!"
The students also started making noises along with Fei Fei and Lulu. They didn't think they would do something like this.
"Count me in..."
Kaya stood by Jaafar. He bitterly smiled and then he glanced at Ikaros.
"I will have to make decisions that will hinge on the results of this duel..."
Kaya said with a mysterious tone.
"Can you kill my determination?"
Wu Yan more or less read his mind. He closed his eyes after seeing the looks on the crown princes of two empires.
The crowd silenced themselves.
"Serious, you guys just can't chill..."
Sighing, he replied.
"Alright, let's do this!"
Then, the crowd cheered, their screams of excitement reached the high heavens.
