Chapter 24: "Flash Fight"
Around the challenge stage, the seats were all filled. Most of them were here to see how Sima You Yue was going to be defeated Many couldn't wait to see him being humiliated, they wanted to watch the show and see how he ran away with his tail tucked between his legs.
Although in terms of status, they can’t compare to Sima You Yue, but they wanted to witness with their own eyes at his defeat and his expression at the moment of defeat.
"How is that trash still not here yet?"
Although they did not dare call him names straight to his face, behind his back they had a huge variety of names that was used.
"Could it be that he's now afraid and backed out?" Another person chimed in.
"After all, Miss Meng is a Spirit Master, compared to that waste, hmph! I’m sure he likely to escaped already!"
"If that’s the case, he wouldn’t be so thick skinned and appear in our Academy again!"
"Really so annoying! This trash's skin is thicker than the walls! Or else he wouldn’t keep pestering Murong An!"
"This Murong An is quite unlucky, he’s been targeted by a male. The expression he has on whenever he sees Sima You Yue, tsk tsk… I really pity him."
"Haha! This Sima You Yue is going to be kicked out of the Academy, has Murong An arrived yet to witness this spectacle?"
"Yes, I see Murong An's group! They are seated at the front row!"
Everyone looked towards the direction he was pointing at and sure enough, in the middle of the first row, Murong An and Nalan family's Young Miss, Nalan Lan were seated together.
"Murong, this Sima You Yue will come, right?" Nalan Lan asked gently with an air of noble arrogance.
"Even if he does not come, I will have my own ways to make him disappear from the Academy!" Murong An spat out with disgust. "I thought that he had already been expelled from the Academy, who knew he actually joined the freshman class after the New Year started. If he dares to harass me again, don’t blame me for being ruthless!"
"Brother in law, you can rest assured that piece of trash won’t harass you again." Nalan Qi said with an insidious smile.
"Oh Brother, what nonsense are you saying?" Nalan Lan nudged her Brother with a faint blush on her face.
"Hahahaha, why are you still so shy? Since both of you have already established a couple relationship, all that’s missing is a wedding. In my heart, Murong An is already my Brother in law, isn’t that so? My Brother in law?" Nalan Qi teased Murong An unabashedly as well.
Murong An did not say anything but he also didn’t deny anything.
"Oh look! That trash finally appeared!"
Following that outcry, everyone’s gaze darted to the entrance and saw Sima You Yue strolling in with Wei Zi Qi.
Standing on stage was Meng Ting, and when she saw Sima You Yue enter, she raised her hands and the entire challenge grounds immediately quietened down.
"You’ve made me wait so long, I thought that you had escaped already!" Meng Ting taunted as she sneered at Sima You Yue.
"How could it be? You’ve given me such a rare opportunity to make yourself disappear from my sight in the future, how could I miss out on such a good deal!" Sima You Yue took a look around the arena and saw that it was packed. What a huge crowd!
Seems like a lot of them came here, seeing her as a joke.
"Since you’re here already, enough nonsense. Faster, come up!" Meng Ting said impatiently.
She couldn’t wait to teach that waste a lesson, she had already spent so much time waiting for that piece of trash and he still had the cheek to be late!
"I'll wait for you at the stands." Wei Zi Qi said.
"There’s no need to, I’ll finish this real quick, just wait here for me." Sima You Yue replied.
"Alright then." Wei Zi Qi nodded and stood beside the challenge stage and watched her step forward.
Meng Ting looked at Sima You Yue and with a voice filled with contempt and snickered: "If I were you, to save some face for my family, I’d just directly throw in the towel."
"Why should I?"
"Because I will beat you up until you admit defeat. Everyone here will witness the General's grandson beaten miserably to a pulp, and the whole General's residence will be put to shame. Your whole family will become a huge joke!"
"Wow, so you are confident that you can defeat me?" Sima You Yue raised her eyebrows in a taunt.
Meng Ting puffed up her chest and answered: "Of course!" Her whole self brimming with confidence.
At this time, Sima You Le and Fatty Qu frantically ran in and when Sima You Le saw that Sima You Yue was already standing on the stage, he was struck silly and felt as if his soul had left his body.
"You Yue! What are you doing up there! Quick! Come down NOW!" He was shouting at her as he ran in.
"You Yue…You..come..down.." Fatty Qu was panting heavily as he gasped for his breath.
"Fourth Brother, why are you here?" Sima You Yue looked at the two figures dashing towards her, guessing that it was most probably Fatty Qu who had called him. Before she left she didn’t see Fatty Qu and thought that he was in his room, she didn’t expect that he had actually went to look for her Brother for help.
This friendship, she has noted it down thoroughly!
Looking at the panic stricken two, she beamed widely and said: "Fourth Brother, I’m now already standing on the challenge stage, unless there is a victor, no one can step down. Unless I admit defeat, if not I can’t come down."
On the way here, she had already heard about the rules from Wei Zi Qi.
"That…" Sima You Le wanted to ask You Yue to directly throw in the towel, safety was his priority.
"Fourth Brother!" Sima You Yue knew what Sima You Le wanted to say and stopped him. "For the reputation of our Sima Family, I will not run away! And I will never let our Sima Family suffer another humiliation because of me ever again!"
Hearing the words of Sima You Yue, the people present were shocked. Was this the same cowardly Sima You Yue?
"You Yue…" Sima You Le looked at the blinding smile she gave. His 'Fifth Brother' had really changed.
"Don’t worry, nothing will happen to me." She gave a superfluous smile next and casually gave a victory sign to her Brother. She turned and faced Meng Ting, "Let's start."
Meng Ting looked at the people standing below the stage and impatiently snapped: "Since you cannot cultivate, I’ll let you use a weapon. Quick, bring out your weapon!"
Little Roar was in Wei Zi Qi's arms and he was squirming with excitement when he heard Sima You Yue said start. However, after hearing Meng Ting Asking her to bring out her weapon, he froze and covered his eyes with his little paws, burrowing deeply into Wei Zi Qi's arms.
Wei Zi Qi was puzzled at the little furball's reaction in his arms. Just a moment ago it was squirming in excitement and the next moment it just stood still with its eyes covered.
When Sima You Yue took out the dagger from her waistband, it looked as if it was simply wrapped in a cloth. A burst of laughter broke out once she removed the cover.
"Hahahahahahaha! Has the Prestigious General's family ran out of weapons? Or have they gone bankrupt? Don’t even have enough money to get a decent weapon? He wants to use a rusty dagger to fight against a Spirit Master?! Hahaha! What a joke!"
"This is hilarious! Hahahahaha!"
Boisterous laughter filled the arena.
Sima You Le looked at the dagger in Sima You Yue's hands and he cringed. He wanted to follow Little Roar and cover his eyes in embarrassment…this rusty dagger… could it even be called a weapon?
Meng Ting was speechless when she saw Sima You Yue pull out that rusty dagger. She was stunned for a moment and broke into a smile. "Tsk tsk… Sima You Yue, you have no Spirit Energy yet you dare to swagger in front of me with this piece of junk? Don’t tell me this rust will absorb my Spirit power? Hahaha!"
Sima You Yue had guessed that bringing out that dagger would have brought about such a reaction but she liked how the dagger felt in her hand. The handle was comfortable and she decided that when she got back later, all that blade needed was just a good polish.
In the face of all the ridicule, she simply brushed everything aside as noise and looked at Meng Ting in the eye. There was a dangerous glint in them as she smiled.
