Chapter 14: “Thrashing Up Nalan Qi!”
Translator: Misty Cloud Translations Editor: Misty Cloud Translations
“I would have to trouble Master Feng from now onwards.” Sima You Yue said, looking at Feng Zhi Xing.
Although Master Mu’s actions greatly displeased her, she was nevertheless also thinking that since she had never studied in the academy before, joining the new students might not be that bad an idea afterall.
“This is the key to your room.” Feng Zhi Xing said, tossing a key over to Sima You Yue.
“For all my students, I require them to reside within the academy. I know your grandfather is a respected general of our country, but you will still have to stay here. You can go out in the day, but you must be back in the dormitory by bedtime. Only when we are not out on a mission, you can then go back home and sleep once a week.” Feng Zhi Xing explained.
Although she did not fully understand the rationale behind it, but Sima You Yue obediently complied.
“Alright, you can go back now. Move your belongings into the academy tomorrow and we’ll officially begin our classes the day after.” Feng Zhi Xing continued.
Sima You Yue bowed and took her leave after that. Since she had no more classes, she thought to make good use of her time to go catch up on her training. But before leaving, she thought she should at least inform Sima You Le, but she was stopped before she could even reach the classrooms of the seniors.
“Sima You Yue! Stay right there!”
Sima You Yue raised her head and stared at the person standing before her, blocking her way forward. He was from the same bunch of people who had thrashed her up the other day. She remembered this one person among the many people who had beaten her up at that time, he had been the most vicious one! Seeing him once more, she could almost visualise the scene when the previous owner of the body had been beaten to death by them. Her eyes darkened and she said in a chilling tone: “Get out of my way.”
The person standing in her way was Nalan Qi from the topmost family in the Capital City. The Nalan Family was one of the mightier Houses in the Feng Ming Kingdom and their ancestors were almost reaching the level of the revered Spirit Paragon and hence, they did not think much of the Sima Family. Afterall, in the Sima family, only Sima Lie was powerful, and only he alone. While the Nalan Family had a whole bunch of powerful individuals!
The confrontation between Nalan Qi and Sima You Yue quickly attracted many people to crowd around them. Although they feared offending Sima You Yue, their curiosity for the show unfolding before them won out and they all were thinking they would not get into any trouble if they just watched from the side.
When Nalan Qi saw that so many people had crowded around them, he said with a taunting laugh: “Sima You Yue, are you going to look for Murong An again? Are you still going to bother him like this? Haven’t you learnt your lesson from the thrashing we gave you? How could you be so shameless? As a man, why are you sticking to Murong An so persistently! ? You’re so outrageously shameless!”
Nalan Qi’s words elicited a roar of laughter to erupt from the surrounding crowd. Their eyes were all on Sima You Yue, and the mockery in their eyes were plainly obvious to see.
Sima You Yue stared at Nalan Qi, her eyes seething with anger.
Nalan Qi was not intimidated by Sima You Yue’s angry glare. He got people to bring him a bench and he put one foot onto it and said: “If you want to pass, I will allow it. Here, crawl yourself through under here and I will not stop you.”
As he spoke, he pointed at the space under his raised leg.
Sima You Yue continued to glare at Nalan Qi and did not say a word, but just stood in her spot, unmoving. If it was the previous owner of this body here now, she would have immediately flown into a rage.
“Why? Not going to crawl? You don’t want to or do you not dare to do it? If you are so gutless, that will also mean your so called General Sima is just as spineless as you are! Ha ha ha ha ha…..!”
Nalan Qi looked at Sima You Yue, fully intent on ridiculing him. Never in his wildest dreams would he have foreseen what unfolded next. He had not expected that Sima You Yue would suddenly charge towards him and swiftly grabbed his robes and held him down. Next, Sima You Yue quickly gave a huge kick into Nalan Qi’s groin, and a shrill scream tore out of his throat before he fell over onto the ground, curling up tightly into a ball.
Not a single person there had expected that Sima You Yue would suddenly retaliate. No one had seen how Sima You Yue had come to suddenly appear right before Nalan Qi. By the time they were able to react, Nalan Qi was already writhing on the ground.
It was thought that Sima You Yue would stop at that, but Sima You Yue jabbed a knee onto Nalan Qi’s back as Sima You Yue knelt, and with a grab, Sima You Yue twisted Nalan Qi’s right arm behind before giving it a sharp tug. A loud crack could be heard and a scream suddenly tore through the entire academy grounds.
“Your little Lord here has no time to play with you today. Do not appear before my eyes ever again, or I will beat you to a pulp every time I see you!” Sima You Yue stood up calmly as she got up from Nalan Qi’s back. She gave him another two sharp kicks before he slowly turned and left.
Everyone was utterly shocked and they were all dumbfounded for a long while. Was that the same Sima You Yue who was well known to be timid and weak, and perceived as nothing but just a lusty and infatuated moron?
The news about the ruckus that had happened before the seniors’ classrooms spread quickly throughout the entire academy. Not a single one of the students could believe what they heard. If the ones who brought them the news had not sworn and pledged upon a myriad variety of gods and deities on the authenticity of the news, no one would have believed a word of it.
In a tower not too far away, two men were observing the commotion and one of them was the very same man whom Sima You Yue had met just earlier, Feng Zhi Xing.
“That is one ferocious little one there!” Feng Zhi Xing said with a big smile when he saw Sima You Yue’s moves. But he could not help but to cringe when he remembered where that first kick had landed!
“What made you agree to let him join your class?” The man beside Feng Zhi Xing asked him.
“Just intuition.” Feng Zhi Xing replied. “See, didn’t he just show you that he is nothing like what the rumours said about him? The speed that he moved at earlier when he attacked. Whew….. I am really curious about him. Adding to the fact when he saw me earlier, he had not displayed any signs of infatuation or the sleazy lust that those rumours mentioned.”
“It’s up to you. Since I managed to get you to come, I’ll leave all these issues in your hands to handle.” The man said.
“Headmaster, do you really trust me that much? Aren’t you afraid I’ll lead those students astray?” Feng Zhi Xing asked, looking meaningfully at the other man.
“What is there to be afraid of? Don’t I know you well enough?” The Headmaster walked away from the window and sat back into his seat. He had just been discussing some things with Feng Zhi Xing earlier when he was dragged to go to the window to witness Sima You Yue beating someone up.
“Ha ha, if you’re not afraid, then I have nothing to fear. I’ll leave now and go see which are the unfortunate students that will be ending up in my hands.” Feng Zhi Xing said.
“Your class consists of a bunch of the most gifted kids we have among the entire batch. Take it easy on them.”
“Alright, I’ll try to. I will make sure they have an unforgettable time here!” Feng Zhi Xing immediately left the Headmaster’s office after saying those words.
Before the classrooms, Sima You Yue went to look for Sima You Le after giving Nalan Qi the two kicks. And before she reached the classrooms, she suddenly saw Sima You Le rush out from his class and he didn’t even see Sima You Yue whom he had just passed.
“Fourth Brother, where are you rushing to?” Sima You Yue quickly reached out and grabbed her brother by the arm to ask.
“Little Yue, what are you doing here?” When Sima You Le asked in shock when he saw Sima You Yue there.
“I came here to find you.” Sima You Yue answered with a smile. “You were running so fast, where are you going?”
“I heard you got into an altercation with Nalan Qi up front, and it even escalated into a fight. I was running over there to see if you were hurt.” Sima You Le said.
Sima You Yue was beaming happily as she replied: “Fourth Brother, rest assured. I am not hurt. I gave Nalan Qi a good thrashing.”
“Of course! I’m right here before you, aren’t I?” Sima You Yue said.
“That’s good to hear.” Sima You Le finally heaved a sigh of relief and then went on to ask: “What did you come here for anyway?”
“Oh, I came here to tell you something.” Sima You Yue told her brother about her being demoted a grade and that she would also be boarding at the Academy. Then, she continued to say: “I intend to go back and inform Grandfather about it, and I will move into the dorms tomorrow.”
