Chapter 59: “Exacting Justice”
Soon after, a teacher walked inside. He had been a little surprised when he saw Sima You Yue, but he very quickly regained his composure and began class.
This class was on Geography and it happened to be about Pu Luo Mountain Range. After talking about the topography of the area, the teacher began to teach about the Spirit Beasts on the mountain. The entire class was focused on teaching the students about things like the characteristics of the various Spirit Beasts.
Sima You Yue turned serious upon hearing this, especially since she desired to accustom herself better to this world. Furthermore, on the Pu Luo Mountain Range, she had encountered some of the Spirit Beasts that the teacher had mentioned, so it wasn't too dry or boring.
Especially since the things that the teacher was talking about were pretty useful. If she had known about these things before she had ended up in Pu Luo Mountain Range, she would not have faced such difficulty when she encountered those Spirit Beasts.
Bei Gong Tang and her listened to these things extremely seriously but Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi, these two, had their minds wandering everywhere. They were barely listening to class and were very distracted.
With much difficulty, they managed to last till the end of class. The moment the teacher left, the two of them looked at Sima You Yue and immediately ran out. One of them went to look for Feng Zhi Xing while another ran towards the Academy Plaza.
Before he left, Wei Zi Qi even shouted at the classrooms, "If you want to see something exciting, come to the Academy Plaza!"
Being enticed by Wei Zi Qi's cliffhanger, everyone's curiosity had been aroused so they all headed towards the Academy Plaza.
He Qiu Zhi saw that everyone had left but she just sat unmoving at her seat. She had a kind of foreboding that this exciting news had something to do with her.
"Let's go." Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang were waiting inside the classroom. They saw that everyone else had left but He Qiu Zhi still sat at her seat with no indication of moving so they walked forward to say.
"I, I'm not going." He Qiu Zhi said, "I have something on, right, I have something I need to do so I'll be leaving first."
After saying this, she stood up and prepared to leave.
Sima You Yue immediately grabbed her collar, saying, "You're the main lead of today's show. If you don't go, this show will be incomplete, right?! Let's go."
"Sima You Yue, release me!" He Qiu Zhi heard what Sima You Yue had said and was even more reluctant to go. She twisted her body, wanting to break free of Sima You Yue's grasp.
But no matter how much she struggled, it was like she was held in a death grip that refused to budge.
Sima You Yue saw how restless He Qiu Zhi was and grabbed onto her hand, pulling it backwards. It hurt her so much that she grounded her teeth and roared, "Sima You Yue, what do you want to do?! Aren't you afraid of being expelled?"
"There's no point thinking about these little things." Sima You Yue increased the strength in her hand, "You think that I would deal with you personally? There's no way that I would give the Nalan Clan an excuse to expel me. Since I've said that you have to go, then you better not resist. Bei Gong Tang is not as easily appeased as I am."
He Qiu Zhi saw Bei Gong Tang, who was standing at the side, and gave up all thoughts of resisting.
These few months they've also started practice battles. If Bei Gong Tang said that her battle abilities were only ranked second, nobody would dare claim to be the first.
"Since you've chosen to harm me, you should have been prepared for a day like this to come." Sima You Yue smiled coldly as she said.
By the time Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang had finally brought He Qiu Zhi to the Academy Plaza, the Plaza had been filled with so many people. Aside from the new students, there were even a few seniors.
This Academy Plaza happened to be at the heart of the school and was a place that students definitely had to walk by after class. After hearing that something exciting was going to take place, everyone decided to stay back.
The people who were waiting to see the exciting show were standing there in twos and threes, as everyone wondered what exciting thing was going to happen today.
Nalan Lan and Murong An had came in together from class and there were even three of four other people who had came with them from their previous class. They were walking past the Academy Plaza when they were barred from walking along by Sima You Yue.
When they saw Sima You Yue, the faces of these two people turned black immediately. Murong An's face was even colder as he said, "Sima You Yue, why are you looking for me again?!"
"Sima You Yue, how can you be so shameless? I've just heard of your return but you immediately come to hold on to Master Murong." The people behind immediately began to rage.
"When did he ever have any semblance of shame? When did he not act like a dog, running over, every single time he met Master Murong."
Sima You Le had received news from Sima You Yue in the morning, telling him to come over to the Academy Plaza after school. Who knew that he would hear these people scolding his younger brother so he rushed over to these people who had been talking and immediately beat them up.
"You dare to curse at my younger brother, you're asking for death!"
"Ahhh!…" Those who had been on the receiving end of his punch were left sprawled on the ground, groaning about in pain.
"Sima You Le, are you looking for a fight?" Those people immediately helped their friends up.
"So what if I'm looking for a fight?" Sima You Le looked at the people who were glaring at him and he stood in front of Sima You Yue. He raised his chin as if he was taunting them to see who would dare step forward to fight with him.
Sima You Yue pulled at Sima You Le's arm, saying, "Fourth Brother, wasting your words on these imbeciles would only lower our own status, don’t you think?"
"Sima You Yue, what did you say?" Some people hollered.
"Look, Fourth Brother, they don't even understand such simple words, if you continued to reason with them, it would be completely meaningless." Sima You Yue shrugged her shoulders. After that, she looked towards Murong An, saying, "Murong An, you're even more disgusting than they are. A narcissistic dog is the most vile of them all."
The activities on this side had long aroused the interest of many people. After hearing what Sima You Yue had said, everyone was incomparably shocked.
When had Sima You Yue learnt to speak to Murong An like that?!
"What did you say?!" Sima You Yue had called him a dog in front of everyone, and he was even a waste. This made him extremely furious.
"You were one from the start." Sima You Yue said, "I didn't even come to look for you today, but the moment you opened your mouth you asked me why I came to look for you, isn't that narcissism? Or are you saying that you've been enraptured by my charming good looks, hoping that I, this Young Master, had come to look for you for whatever reason?"
"Nonsense!" Murong An immediately refuted.
"Nonsense or not, I can't be bothered to argue with you." Sima You Yue saw that Fatty Qu had already brought Feng Zhi Xing over and the fatty who was the Teaching Director had also tagged along so she knew that the timing was just about to arrive, she said, "Nalan Lan, I came today to look for you."
"Look for me?" When Nalan Lan heard what Sima You Yue had said, her heart involuntarily started to pound. She convinced herself that it was impossible for Sima You Yue to find any evidence against her. Even if He Qiu Zhi accused her of doing anything, all she had to do was to refute it. As a result, her heart started to calm down again. She asked "Why are you looking for me?"
"Why is everyone gathered over here? Also, who is the one who asked us to come?" The Teaching Direction creased his eyebrows in question as he saw the large crowd of people gathered in the Plaza.
"Director, it was me who asked them to invite you here." Sima You Yue stepped two steps forward and said, "I have something that I want everyone in the Academy to help me judge."
Looking at Sima You Yue, the Teaching Director's eyes flashed with disdain and hatred, but he still asked, "What is it about?"
"Last time when we were choosing Spirit Beast Eggs, someone had harmed me and pushed me into the Fourth Teleportation Array. This is something that everyone knows. Now, I've already found out who is the one who hurt me. Initially, I wanted to find her for revenge but I thought of the rule that forbid me from taking revenge into my own hands, so I specially invited everyone here to help me be the judge."
"Who is it?" The Teaching Director had yet to say a word when Feng Zhi Xing asked.
He always had his suspicions. There were so many people, so why was she the one who entered the Fourth Teleportation Array. It turned out that someone had sabotaged her. Thinking of how she had almost failed to return, his clear eyes flashed with a coldness.
Sima You Le hatefully glared at the people around him. Since Sima You Yue had chosen this place to say it, the person who had harmed his brother was definitely around here.
Thinking of how there was someone who actually dared to harm Sima You Yue, his face revealed unrestrained malice.
"Fifth Brother, who was it that dared to harm you?!"
