The Inverted Dragon’s Scale: Chapter Six

“You were wrong.” The voice was soft yet sharp, just like a fish bone. You can swallow it down, but it would cause your whole body to feel uncomfortable and cause your throat to bleed. ZhaoMingZhu turned around abruptly and said in anger: “Who said that I was wrong?”

CuiXiaoXing was a good student. She was the number one student in the class and the whole school. If there aren’t any setbacks, she can definitely walk through the gates of Westerly Winds College.

“Teacher, I said that you were wrong.” Wearing Renaissance High’s uniform’s CuiXiaoXing stood up as straight as a pencil and said once more.

“Teacher, you have to apologize to LiMuYang.” CuiXiaoXing did not have the intention to back down and said: “This conflict has nothing to do with LiMuYang, he is a victim.

“Teacher, I’m not defending him, I am only saying the things I should be saying.” CuiXiaoXing’s expression was one of clear coldness and was not overwhelmed by ZhaoMingZhu’s pressure. She said: “I am only saying what I saw, what I personally saw.”

“They didn’t have the guts to say the truth, but someone has to stand up. Otherwise, whats black and white, whats right and wrong, the answer will never surface. This situation was initiated by ZhangChen who slammed LiMuYang’s desk and disturbed the whole class’ rest. LiMuYang did not do anything to ZhangChen, as for why ZhangChen was crying, you have to ask him yourself.”

“We are classmates.”

“ZhaoMingZhu waved her hand and said: “XiaoXing, sit down now, ZhangChen, return to your seat and LiMuYang, stand outside the door for punishment.

“Student CuiXiaoXing.” LiMuYang interrupted. He gave a smile, pretended that he didn’t mind at all and said: “I can still sleep outside. The class is starting, I don’t want to disturb my fellow classmate’s precious time. I pray that you will all produce good results in the examinations.”

Noticing the bright smile that LiMuYang gave to herself, staring at his shadow of his back leaving the classroom under everyone’s gazes, CuiXiaoXing suddenly felt a strange sense of discomfort in her heart. From start to finish had nothing to do with her but she still felt like she had suffered a great injustice.

“CuiXiaoXing, what are you doing?”

Inside the Beast Aspect Pavilion, CuiXiaoXing ordered a cup of Jade Water Tea. LiMuYang did not look at the menu and told the waiter: “I’d also like a cup of Jade Water Tea.” Afterwards, he folded both his hands on top of the table and stared with eyes full of glamour at CuiXiaoXing sitting opposite him.

Renaissance High’s most pitch-black and foolish student ‘piggy’ with the school’s female goddess CuiXiaoXing sitting and drinking Jade Water together, this was something that was taboo to even dream about about.

CuiXiaoXing’s eyebrows twitched, looked at LiMuYang and said: “If one doesn’t love oneself, how does he expect others to love him back? If one doesn’t respect oneself, how does he expect others to respect him in return? I know you’re not dumb, judging from that day’s conversation, I can tell that you’re very intelligent. All you had to do was muster some effort and stop sleeping in lessons. You results wouldn’t be like this, the teacher wouldn’t view you with such criticism and our classmates wouldn’t think that you were pulling the class’s average score down.”

“I have.” CuiXiaoXing said without hesitation. “A lot of times out class should have been on the top of the year. But you dragged our class’s average points down too much, otherwise Miss Zhao wouldn’t have been that angry.”

“Do you not think that as a male with perfectly fine hands and feet, and at such a young age,  is  extremely irresponsible by being lethargic and muddle headed everyday?”

This sort of expression was seen countless times within his parent’s eyes. He had also seen it within his little sister ShiNian’s eyes.

“I was struck by lightning.” LiMuYang said.

CuiXiaoXing had a dumbfounded expression. Her small and snow white face turned red then purple. Her expression was now full of disappointment. She said angrily: “LiMuYang, there’s no helping you.”

She was just too furious and even more disappointed. She hesitated when she chased after him and now that small hesitation had turned into a sense of deep regret.

“CuiXiaoXing, CuiXiaoXing, you have to be more cautious in the future.”

However…… However he was struck by lightning.

LiMuYang also rose up and explained clumsily: “Student CuiXiaoXing, don’t misunderstand, I didn’t want to say that you were the lightning.”

“No, what I meant to say was that your words are nothing like lightning.”

The more desperate LiMuYang was, the angrier angrier CuiXiaoXing felt after listening to his explanation.

CuiXiaoXing already arrived in front of the exit. She lifted her hand to take a grip on the bronze door handle.

Just like what she had said before.

This concern was different from his sister LiShiNian’s concern.

LiMuYang had always thirsted for such friendship. This was because from a small age, he had never made any friends.

CuiXiaoXing’s footsteps paused and in the end turned around.

He looked at CuiXiaoXing’s eyes, voice that was husky and contained a tone of shyness, clumsily said: “I forgot to say, the flower head band that you wore looks really nice on you.”
