The school was always brimming with the energy of youth. Not every student was like Mo Fan, who had already encountered all kinds of terrifying demon beasts when he was still in his high school days.
As the students had never experienced the fear of encountering demon beasts, or been corrupted by society, the Magic Institute retained its sacredness, where everything was full of hope and anticipation.
Sitting on a bench covered in fallen dry leaves, Liu Ru could not help but feel jealous of the students in the Magic Institute.
She was only an ordinary girl, who did not take the noble path of becoming a Magician. When she saw the students who had extraordinary power, it reminded her of the overwhelming strength of the vampire she hated. Liu Ru was regretting that she did not insist on studying at a Magic School, as she would not be as helpless as she currently was.
Mo Fan’s apartment was located in the Pearl Institute. It was Liu Ru’s first time at a Magic Institute. She gloomily found herself in a world where she did not belong. She was feeling a yearning and regretful, but mostly had an overwhelming sense of loneliness from not knowing how to continue on with her life.
The air cooled as the day grew darker. Occasionally, a few guys passing by would approach her after seeing her fairly unique temperament. Normally, Liu Ru would be happy to make friends with some Magicians, who were seen as the pillars of the country, yet she was currently lacking the mood. She could not gather her focus, as every time she closed her eyes, she would see a man in a coat hiding in the darkness, and when her eyes sprang open, it felt like the figure was right in front of her.
“Have you finished your class?” Finally, Liu Ru saw a familiar face walking toward her, bringing a smile to her miserable face.
“I was looking for information. The library here has lots of books about demon beasts, yet I couldn’t find any information about the vampires,” Mo Fan said helplessly.
“I’ll lend you a hand. It’s a lot of work if you’re doing it alone,” said Liu Ru, who wanted to do something.
“Alright, I’ll bring you to the library tomorrow,” Mo Fan nodded.
On the second day, Mo Fan brought Liu Ru to the library early in the morning. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, Ai Tutu had followed them to the library, too.
Ai Tutu was extremely furious. They had made it clear that no one was allowed to bring someone to the apartment without asking for everyone’s permission, yet Mo Fan had brought a girl back, who even spent the night!
One could imagine the terrified look on Ai Tutu’s face when she walked out from her room in her pajamas and saw a girl with a worn-out look walking out from Mo Fan’s room. She was very angry, and immediately told Mu Nujiao about it, to expose Mo Fan’s true character.
Mu Nujiao was relatively calm, but she still could not understand why Mo Fan would bring a girl to the apartment if he were desperately in need of a place.
Mo Fan roughly explained the situation, yet the two girls were not fully convinced by it, especially Ai Tutu, who insisted on following them to the library.
“Excuse me, mistress, I’m at work, so please don’t disturb me,” Mo Fan said sternly to Ai Tutu.
The works that Hunters did most of the time were filled with danger. If necessary, Mo Fan would prefer not to involve anyone he knew in his work. Besides, Liu Ru was being targeted by a vampire hiding in the dark. Mo Fan had already arranged another apartment for Liu Ru, and had moved into it temporarily.
“Who’s disturbing you? Aren’t you looking for information about vampires? I’ll lend a hand, too. Maybe I can help you to catch the vampire too,” retorted Ai Tutu.
Ai Tutu wanted to know if Mo Fan actually shared a secret relationship with Liu Ru. If that was the case, she would convince her Sister Mu to forget about this ungrateful man.
“Nonsense! I don’t want to see you during this period, do you understand?!” Mo Fan’s tone sank, not giving Ai Tutu any chance to mess around.
Ai Tutu was startled when she saw Mo Fan’s fierce expression.
A while later, Ai Tutu punched and kicked Mo Fan wildly, before running away with tears bursting out her eyes.
Mo Fan let out a sigh after chasing Ai Tutu away.
Mo Fan was not worried that Ai Tutu would disturb him, but he knew how dangerous these demon beasts hiding in human territories were. They were mostly vengeful, and could appear from the dark at any time to deal a critical blow to Hunters, or to the people around the Hunters.
Therefore, Mo Fan would never involve anyone close to him while he was doing a job. Although Ai Tutu and Mu Nujiao were strong Intermediate Magicians, their intelligence when going up against some cunning demon beasts hiding in the dark was not even a tenth that of a Hunter Master like Lingling!
These demon beasts which were living among humans knew how to disguise themselves, and most of the time, they could easily murder powerful yet inexperienced Magicians!
The library was huge and split into many floors.
The books on the top floor were relatively old and less mainstream. Not many students were on that floor. Mo Fan and Liu Ru began flipping through the books, while waiting for Lingling to get back to them with any findings.
Lingling had been using different ways to spy on the North Country Club, but the vampire never showed up, as if he were aware of something.
Lingling was a little loli, remarkably adorable after leaving her usual smart, doddering manner behind. No one would suspect her regardless of what she was doing, including the demon beasts hiding among the humans.
Who would picture an innocent little loli as an experienced Hunter Master, expert at eliminating demon beasts?
Mo Fan could only wait for Lingling to return with good news, while trying to find information regarding a vampire’s weaknesses…
Mo Fan could never forget the scene where the vampire had pulled his heart out, yet the hole mended itself in a short time. It was unlikely that ordinary ways were any use against a strange creature like that, thus he was hoping that the old books would provide some useful information.
Mo Fan was searching a row of bookshelves when he suddenly captured a familiar gorgeous back from the gap between the books.
The same attractive black hair, which instead of being perfectly straight like normal was spread out like mermaid hair, with a blue sparrow headband around the bottom half of her hair. It granted her an inexplicably elegant and calm demeanor. She was fully focused on selecting a book from the rack, unaware of the eyes staring at her through the shelves behind her.
Mo Fan recognized her just by looking at her back.
“Ding Yuming, what a surprise to stumble into her here…” mumbled Mo Fan.
The most unique thing about the Fire Element’s goddess was the fact that she always had a new hairstyle, just like how other women always wore different clothes. It gave her a different kind of breathtaking appearance every day…
