Many people were extremely surprised when Qin Wushuang had returned to the Martial Arts Academy.
They were even more astonished when they saw that Qin Wushuang had had a change of character. In the past, Qin Wushuang was always seemed depressed when he interacted with people. Each day, he seemed to have gone through great suffering.
The current Qin Wushuang always wore an innocent smile. He neither tried to please others nor did he distance himself. Thus, to people, Qin Wushuang exhibited a sense of transcendence.
Qin Wushuang, who in the past struggled with feelings of inferiority and exhibited an extreme behavior, had been reborn. Regardless of participating in the academy's group activities, or interacting with people, he always appeared calm and at ease.
Of course, other martial art students viewed that form of attitude as arrogance. These students felt that only those super aristocratic children were eligible for this type of superior attitude. How dare you show off when you were only kid from the Humble Class?
Jin Buyi, the dean of the Martial Arts Academy, was the first one to discover this change. He always kept this matter in his mind ever since he came back from the Qin house.
He decided to have a talk with Qin Wushuang to get to the bottom of this.
This afternoon, Qin Wushuang was called by one of the dean's subordinates when he was meditating.
In his heart, Qin Wushuang laughed for he knew that Jin Buyi could no longer retain his composure. It was a little less than a month since he had returned to the academy. He could maintain his composure, but Jin Buyi could not.
The last time when Jin Buyi had invited him to return to the academy, Qin Wushuang had already figured out that Jin Buyi had reached some form of agreement with unknown powerhouses. He must have had other intentions when he had tricked him into returning to the academy. Most likely, the dean wanted to replay the duel.
Qin Wushuang wanted to see how shameful Jin Buyi could be.
As he walked to the dean's room, he saw the dean of the Martial Arts Academy - Jin Buyi instantly.
Jin Buyi was known to fish for fame and regarded himself as high-hearted. He proclaimed himself a man with a "kind-heart" to raise his publicity.
However, advertisements remained as advertisements. The truth would not stay hidden from the people in the world.
"Qin Wushuang, you are here." Jin Buyi had a grave expression, which masked his emotions. He was an entirely different person from a month ago as he showed concern and enthusiasm towards Qin Wushuang.
"Yes." Qin Wushuang did not bother to speak another word. He did not carry any hope for this dean since he knew the way he had taken care of the duel.
"Has the injury on your head completely healed?" Jin Buyi changed his tone and asked.
For the second time, Jin Buyi had asked this question. Of course, Qin Wushuang would not take this "concern" seriously. Thus, he replied with a cold voice.
Jin Buyi measured Qin Wushuang from head to toe. The more carefree Qin Wushuang acted, the more sternly he stared at him as if he wanted to see through him.
Qin Wushuang started laughing: "Mr. Dean, are flowers growing out from my face?"
Jin Buyi smiled embarrassingly and felt irritated because he could not see through the mind of this little martial art boy. Ever since he had become the dean twenty or thirty ago, this was the first time he had encountered this situation.
Moreover, he was much more confused by Qin Wushuang's light-hearted attitude.
Surprisingly, he stayed calm under his threats. His reactions did not fit in with Qin Wushuang's usual character.
However, although Jin Buyi was suspicious, he quickly moved on to another topic. After all, he was the dean.
"Yes, you had caused an adverse influence the last time when you quarreled with the son of the Zhang family, Zhang Xian. In the future, I want you to act dutifully. You guys are here to study, not to cause trouble." Jin Buyi continued to offer weighty advice to Qin Wushuang with a serious tone.
Qin Wushuang's smile widened when he heard these words. He shrugged his shoulder as if he did not care to respond. In fact, he did not want to waste his time to speak to him.
In his heart, he thought that Jin Buyi had such a lowly character. He dared to proclaim himself as a "kind-hearted" man!
"What? Do you think I am wrong?" When Jin Buyi saw that Qin Wushuang did not pay attention, he sharpened his tone because he was dissatisfied with his attitude.
Initially, Qin Wushuang did not wish to continue the conversation any further. However, Jin Buyi's aggressiveness was forcing Qin Wushuang to hit him with his words.
"Yes, you are right. I should bear all the humiliation when children of the Zhang family bullied me. When they hit my left-side face, I should also allow them to run on my right-side. When they wanted to rob my family's land, I should also give them our oil mill and shops. As a child from the Humble Class, we need to have this sort of resolution, right? Is that what you meant, Mr. Dean?"
Since you do not care about your pride, then I would not mind embarrassing you. As soon as Qin Wushuang opened his chatterbox, he threw a pile of incisive questions which Jin Buyi could not reply.
inwardly, Jin Buyi was astonished. When had this kid, who came from the Humble Qin family become so sharp-tongued? Moreover, in the instance when Qin Wushuang had glared at him, he had felt a sharp coldness running across his body as Qin Wushuang's glare was as vicious as a man-eating leopard.
However, Jin Buyi was a dean after all. What had he not seen before? How could a little martial art student scare him? Thus, although he was inwardly timid, he still straightened his back, cleared his throat and gave his warning: "Qin Wushuang, I know very well that you were looking to cause some trouble when you chose to come back to the academy. I am warning you, if you dare to make a fuss, I will take care of you per the law. As a dean, I still have the power to do so in this academy!"
Jin Buyi seemed angry from his earlier embarrassment.
"Weren't you the one that invited me to come back to the Martial Arts Academy? I just don't know; how will you deal with me?" Qin Wushuang asked with a smile.
"I…I will expel you and kick you out!" Jin Buyi growled.
Qin Wushuang nodded and stared for a few minutes at Jin Buyi while a smile hung on his face. Then, he laughed and said in a mocking tone: "Mr. Dean, I understand your intentions. I will remember your words. Goodbye."
Qin Wushuang walked out from the dean's room while he tried to suppress his anger. In fact, he almost could not hold himself from punching the nose of this Jin Buyi.
"In this world, the conflicts between people are so straightforward."
He walked outside of the yard, released the grievances he'd been holding in his chest and spoke to himself.
Expel me? Kick me out?
Qin Wushuang bitterly shook his head. Did he think that I wanted to stay in this academy? Did he think that it's fun for me to tangle with a bunch of little kids?
Jin Buyi's "excellent performance" made Qin Wushuang even more determined to carry out his original plan.
In this world, it would not be a good thing to stay humble.
If being humble would only bring you endless bullying and being stepped on, then what reasons would one have to remain humble?
If someone wanted to hit your face, then we should destroy him together with his arms.
In his previous life, Wu Xinghe had done it this way.
Since he had arrived at an even crazier and complicated world, why not just do it too?
Instantly, Qin Wushuang had an idea when he looked up at the gray sky. He decided to create some drama for the round prospects of River County.
In the late night, Qin Wushuang had returned late from his training. He did not want to disturb others, so he did not make any noise and quickly went through the corridor swiftly. Just when he was about to turn, over the corner of the high wall on the left side, he suddenly saw two shadow figures flash through to the other end of the wall.
Of course, Qin Wushuang knew that girls lived on the other side of the wall. These girls all came from the wealthy aristocratic families in River County and studied at the academy.
Those two shadow figures were obviously academy boys. Why did they flip across the wall to the girls' side in the middle of the night? What fishy business are they trying to do?
In his previous life, Qin Wushuang hated three things. First, he hated idiots that would make trouble for their country. Second, he hated traitors. Finally, he hated sexual offenders.
When he had come to this world, he was not overflowing with a sense of justice. However, he still had his principles. Thus, he could not help but to check out the situation.
He quickly moved to the corner of the wall and concealed himself in that spot. He decided to listen for their movements and was not in a hurry to conduct heroic deeds.
Who knew if a trap was set up for him on the other side of the wall?
Soon he heard two tiny footsteps came from a far distance. Apparently, those two had returned.
"Did you get it?"
Hehe, it was a harvest today. I got four. What about you?"
"I got six. hehe, look at this pink undergarment. Oh, my, it's so romantic. I just don't know which girl wears it?"
Those two shadowy figures climbed across the wall, and they instantly flipped across. As soon as they were on this side of the wall and they traveled through the corridor, heading directly toward to Qin Wushuang's dorm.
Vividly, Qin Wushuang realized something and immediately followed them.
Those two quickly arrived before Qin Wushuang's dorm. Surprisingly, they were revealed to have keys to his dorm when they took it out from their pockets. Then, they opened the door casually and went inside.
"Hehe, who knows where this guy went at night, he isn't here. Where should we hide it?"
"Of course the more hidden, the better. We have to make this show as realistic as possible."
"Hehe, young master Xu sure is smart. Since we have helped him with this business, young master Xu should give me a hand to get that Du Qiu girl, right?"
"Stop being obsessed, hurry up and leave as soon as you hid the goods. We can't play the show if that guy comes back."
Young master Xu? An image of a teenage martial art student immediately appeared in Qin Wushuang's head.
Without a doubt, he came from the Wealthy Xu family. Xu Ting, the youngest son of Patriarch Xu, was famous for being a bully in River Martial Arts Academy.
Qin Wushuang had already formed his initial judgment ever since Gou Sheng had accompanied Xu Si Hai to negotiate with the Qin family. As he connected that visit with the duel between him and Zhang Xian, he figured that Xu Ting was most likely behind it as well.
As he watched these two leave, Qin Wushuang suddenly had an idea.
He quietly returned to the dorm, dug out a pile of "stolen goods" and held onto his hands. Then, he locked the door again and vanished into the darkness as if he were a ghost.
Xu Ting, you liked to play dirty, right? Then I will play along with you!
