“Are you shocked by how pitiful the Blacksmith’s Association branch here is?” Mu Chen asked.
“Yeah!” Tang Wulin nodded. “Isn’t Shrek the greatest city on the continent? The branch of the Blacksmith’s Association here should be amazing! Why is it like this…?”
“It’s precisely because this is Shrek City that this branch is so pitiful. Shrek Academy controls everything in this city. Basically, you can consider the city an independent state. Shrek Academy has set up an association for every trade and profession. I believe you’ve already joined the Shrek Blacksmith’s Association, correct? For the sake of not stirring up conflict between their association and ours, we only maintain a small branch here. The Blacksmith’s Association, which has branches you can find all across the continent, is completely different from the Shrek Blacksmith’s Association.”
“So that’s how it is…” Tang Wulin said. “Doesn’t that mean Shrek is really oppressive?”
Mu Chen shook his head. “Shrek isn’t oppressive. This is them governing themselves. In truth, there are plenty of elites from every profession here, more than enough to support their associations. You mentioned that Old Man Feng is looking for you. Did he do anything to you?”
Tang Wulin shook his head. “Elder Feng wanted to take me as his disciple, but I didn’t agree.”
“That old man is a real maniac. He only began blacksmithing in his forties, yet he still managed to become a Saint Blacksmith. He has his own unique blacksmithing philosophy, so there’s no harm in you learning from him. If he asks again, you may accept him as your teacher as well.

Mu Chen waved his hand dismissively. “I’m being serious. Shrek City is different from other places. It isn’t easy to establish yourself here. There’s no doubt about your forging talent, but your strength is still lacking. Having a supporter would be good for you. Elder Feng is very powerful and infamous for his furious temper. However, everyone also knows that he treats the people at his side exceptionally well. The things he can teach you will complement the things I teach you.”
Then a troubled smile surfaced on Mu Chen’s face. “In all honesty, I can’t defeat him. If you continue to refuse him, I’m sure he’ll come knocking on my door one day. Rather than have that happen, it’d be better off to just let you have another teacher.”
Mu Chen naturally didn’t want to share Tang Wulin with Feng Wuyu. No one would want to share their student after all. However, Tang Wulin would spend many years at Shrek Academy. Refusing to accept Feng Wuyu as his teacher had the potential to affect his future cultivation and hinder his chances of becoming a Divine Blacksmith. Above all else, Mu Chen wanted to avoid thi
