“Teacher Miaoxiao, there’s no rush. Go wash your face first, you can explain after you’ve calmed your emotions. Don’t be too stressed, you’re an outstanding teacher. The students have high evaluations of your lessons.” Coach Song advised her gently.
“Thank you.” Teacher Miaoxiao wiped away her tears, and left the office in a flurry.
“Sorry about that Student Song.” Coach Song began to conclude the matter.
“It’s fine. It’s fine, perhaps I had a rather fierce gaze earlier unknowingly, which frightened the teacher? It’s great that Teacher Miaoxiao is fine, let this matter end at this point.” Song Shuhang quickly replied. He hoped that this matter wouldn’t cause the teacher to get fired. If that happened, he’ll feel guilty for the rest of his life.
Seeing Song Shuhang being so understanding, Coach Song lamented inside: Sure enough, he is such a great student!
With those words from Song Shuhang, this matter was put to rest.
Coach Song yawned, then changed topics, “I heard that in tomorrow’s sports competition, Student Song is registered to participate on the men’s 5km run? Work hard and attain glory for our class!”
The corner of Song Shuhang’s mouth twitched. That 5km run isn’t something he wanted to participate in. However, he still maintained a smiling face, “Of course, I will do my best to achieve a good result.”
“Haha, the 5km run isn’t easy, don’t force yourself too much. Anyway, I support you. You may return to the class, the misunderstanding between you and Teacher Miaoxiao will be explained by her later. If she doesn’t explain it herself, then I’ll step in, I assure you that this matter will not affect you negatively at all.” Coach Song patted his chest reassuringly.
After leaving the office, Song Shuhang breathed a sigh of relief, but he was still filled with guilt inside.
When the chance comes, I must compensate Teacher Miaoxiao!
After returning back to class, Shuhang didn’t continue experimenting with mental oppression, he didn’t even dare to use mental detection. He only kept ‘alertness’ activated.
Back in the lecture hall, Teacher Miaoxiao was a strong woman who kept her word. Although she was extremely embarrassed, she still seriously explained to all students that she lost control earlier.
The matter passed like this, she continued to teach, without bringing her emotions to into the classroom. Simply based on this trait, it could be seen that she was a well-qualified teacher.
The morning’s lessons finally passed without any more mishaps.
Shuhang’s three roommates had skipped two whole lessons. Did they drink that much yesterday?
Song Shuhang breathed a sigh of relief, he realized that when he maintained mental alertness, his mind would turn exceptionally clear. Even if he doesn’t concentrate on the lesson, the contents of Teacher Miaoxiao’s lesson still endlessly flowed into his ears, which he memorized and understood.
Moreover…… after maintaining it for one and a half classes, his understanding towards ‘alertness’ deepened, and he could maintain it for longer than before. In addition, his total mental energy had increased by a corresponding amount as well.
Seems like the the alertness trick had the side effect of increasing mental energy capacity. Although it didn’t increase by much, he still couldn’t maintain this trick on forever!
“It’s already nine-thirty, I should go back and check on those three fellas, I hope they aren’t dead due to intoxication.” Song Shuhang scratched his head and prepared to go to Li Yangde’s flat to check if his three roommates had died.
On the way to Li Yangde’s flat, he continuously utilized the three mental energy tricks in turn. Also, he tried to activate both ‘alertness’ and ‘mental detection’ simultaneously to use them together.
It was a pity that he only met with failures due to his lack of mental energy.
However, he was enjoying it and didn’t get tired, he constantly tackled their usage, to accumulate experience from failures.
After failing again, he rubbed his temples and stopped the experiment, because his mind had completely fogged up.
“The total amount of mental energy is simply too shitty. Today I can only approximately practice 《True Self Meditation Scripture》 twice, and must find a chance to practice the foundation building fist technique.” He inwardly said.
《True Self Meditation Scripture》 may not have harsh requirements of qi and blood when compared to 《Vajra Foundation Building Fist Technique》, but it’s also affected by the quality of the body. When cultivating in the 《True self Meditation Scripture》, it’s important not to over-wring one’s mental energy, for it can make one turn into a retard.
Because his mind was drained, Song Shuhang was momentarily unaware of his surroundings, and crashed against the back of someone who was in front of him with his head.
What he smashed into was a wide back, which meant that the opposite party was at least a head taller than Song Shuhang.
After having taken the Body Tempering Liquid, he was already at the level of Hercules amongst ordinary men, the kind where pulling a train with his bare hands was a simple matter. After being bumped into, the person in front immediately fell to the ground. Furthermore, this person fell face down and shrieked.
“Ah? Sorry, my apologies, I didn’t pay attention to what’s in front of me!” Song Shuhang returned to his senses and repeatedly apologized.
He looked towards the person he crashed into…… eh, it was a hoodlum with a very Jiangnan region style.
The hoodlum who had fell to the ground had a tall physique. His long hair was molded to the shape of a chicken head with hairspray, and was dyed all the colors of the rainbow.
Perhaps it was because he fought very often, his physique was pretty good, and he quickly jumped up from the ground.
At this point, his face was filthy from road grime, and his nose had bled all over his mouth.
“Damn brat, don’t you have eyes?” The chicken head hoodlum angrily roared, spurting his nose bleed and saliva while at it.
In the wake of his roar, the five hoodlums by his side sardonically smiled and surrounded Song Shuhang.
I seem to have gotten into trouble? Song Shuhang felt very awkward, he sincerely apologized, “Erm, I’m really sorry. Just now I was deep in thought and didn’t look in front of me, I’m truly sorry.”
“Sorry? If sorry works then what is the police for?” Chicken head hoodlum wiped away his nosebleed, grabbed onto Shuhang’s shirt collar and raged.
After all, it was him who was at fault for bumping into this guy. Song Shuhang felt very embarrassed, “What you say makes a lot of sense, how about we peacefully chat about how to settle this dispute?”
“At least you’re tactful.” Chicken head hoodlum complacently grinned, “Look, you mangled me so badly, you’ve got to at least give a thousand and eight hundred bucks as compensation, right? Don’t tell me that you don’t even have a thousand eight hundred, this is just the start of the month, you can’t possibly be out of living expenses so quickly, right?”
“Yep, my living expenses are transferred by year, there’s no need to worry about lacking money at the end of the month.” Song Shuhang truthfully answered.
Chicken head was immediately filled with joy. It was rare to bump into such a tactful ‘prey’, this is a sign of getting rich!
“But what you’re doing is extortion, I won’t compensate you that much y’know. How about we use a different method to settle things?” Song Shuhang replied seriously. From his sincere gaze, there was no indication that he wanted to fool around with them.
“Settle using a different method? Hahahaha.” Chicken head hoodlum was angered to the point of laughter, “That’s fine as well, let’s chat using our fists, then discuss over the problem of money.
The other four hoodlums smiled maliciously in unison, cracking the bones in their knuckles.
“Discuss using our fists? Which means, we can use fighting as a way to solve this issue?” After hearing this, Song Shuhang revealed a genuine smile, “You guys should’ve said that earlier, that’s fantastic!”
Song Shuhang’s smile was from his heart; this was because he found a good opponent with which to practice his fist technique in actual combat. Jiangnan University had many hoodlums outside of it, there should be enough for him to have actual combat for a reasonable period of time, right? It’d be good even if he could practice just one or two moves on each of them.
Seeing Song Shuhang’s genuine smile, Chicken head hoodlum had a flash of realization. It turns out that this fellow is a moron.
“Damn, so it’s a mentally ill dude.”
How unlucky. Just beat him up to dissolve the anger and forget it.
Two minutes later.
*Smack smack smack*
Song Shuhang gave the Chicken head hoodlum who was laid out on the ground a few more punches.
The hoodlums were in dismay and had dreamy eyes laid on the ground as they watched him get up and swipe off the dust on his body, and heard him say, “Thanks for your trouble everybody, you all performed well. Although there were no skill in your punches, that all-in life gambling style of attack is still very impressive. I hope everybody will temper themselves more in the future, and strive to get stronger.”
Earlier, Song Shuhang used about thirty percent of his strength, because it was just to practice. During the two minutes, he separated the eighteen moves of the 《Vajra Foundation Building Fist Technique》 and tested them all, and felt like he had benefited a lot. Sure enough, actual combat was the best way to test theories!
His only regret was that the hoodlums’ fighting strength was too crappy, and couldn’t let him enjoy to his fill. However, it’s alright, there were really a lot of hoodlums in the vicinity of Jiangnan University. When lacking quality, use quantity to make up for it!
