Aspiring to the Immortal Path Chapter 42: Charged with a Mission

Translated by: Hypersheep325
Edited by: Michyrr

There was no more suspense in the selection of servant students. The lady ultimately decided to task Shi Meng and Tang Jie with this duty.

With the decision made, some people celebrated while others felt dejected.

People gathered around Tang Jie and Shi Meng to congratulate them, and even Steward Qin got a few words of congratulation.

The praise for the two talents of the Wu family and Steward Qin's superb insight came thick and fast.

The more quick-witted ones snuck out of the estate to report to the Wu family, for the rejoicing Wu couple was certain to give them a monetary reward.

Today became a day of celebration. Just like the imperial examinations of antiquity or the sports drafts of the modern era, becoming a servant student was a common dream shared by all mortals.

Shi Meng and Tang Jie were surrounded by people and were being treated in a way that they had never experienced before. With one step, they had ascended through the dragon gate and got a little taste of what it meant to be a celebrity.

While the successes were the center of attention, the failures were utterly ignored.

While Tang Jie was accepting everyone's congratulations, he discovered that Shi Mo had already left the hall.

No one knew when he had left.

Just when he was wondering about this, he heard Zheng Shufeng behind him say, "Tang Jie, come here."

At this time, the master and Master Lu had gone. The only person left on the raised platform was Zheng Shufeng.

Tang Jie assented. Zheng Shufeng pointed at the seat next to her. "Sit."

"My lady is present, so this lowly one does not dare to sit."

"There is no need to be polite." Zheng Shufeng smiled. "This is your just reward."

Now that he was a servant student, Tang Jie had ceased to be an ordinary servant. According to the custom upheld by all the great clans, even the masters of the house would be much more polite to these future Immortal masters.

Tang Jie knew this, so after expressing thanks, he sat down next to Zheng Shufeng.

Zheng Shufeng carefully inspected Tang Jie. She saw that his expression was upright and that he had not grown proud and forgotten himself because of his new status. She was very satisfied, and nodded. "It's been almost three years since you first came to the Wei Estate. In these three years, I have seen how you do things and developed an understanding of you. Do you know why I selected you to enter the estate?"
