If anyone on campus had heard someone threaten to destroy one of Song Jianan’s hands and make the other members of the mixed martial arts club suffer, he would have fallen down laughing or treated it as a joke.
But look who was talking. It was Xiao Luo the Fiend, someone who could send a person flying four or five meters away with a single kick, someone who could ignite a soccer ball after he shot and turned it into a fireball. A guy like this wasn’t human. Yet some people believed he did indeed possess those extraordinary abilities.
Looking at Xiao Luo’s back after he walked away, Du Pengfei broke down and cried like a baby. Now he understood why Tang Yuze’s and Zhao Xinghe’s expressions darkened at the mere mention of Xiao Luo’s name–and why the look of terror appeared in their eyes. How was he human? He was a monster!
“Hey, what’s your name? I told you to stop, didn’t you hear me?”
The PE teacher knew he’d lost face. He ran toward Xiao Luo while pointing is finger at him and yelling angrily; his rage was beyond his control.
But when Xiao Luo stopped in his tracks, the teacher instinctively stepped back and put his guard up, afraid this beast would reduce him to tears, too.
Xiao Luo slowly turned his head and said indifferently, “Teacher, I believe you witnessed what just happened. They hit me with the ball first. I simply returned the favor.”
The PE teacher was incensed. Pointing at Du Pengfei and his buddies, he shouted, “Don’t talk nonsense. According to your logic, if a dog bites you, will you return the favor too?”
“I agree that they are dogs. But I’ll not bite a dog because I’m a human. If a dog bites me, I’ll only hit it with a stick until it becomes afraid of me!” Xiao Luo said matter of factly.
The nerve of this smart ass! Xiao Luo’s viciousness and lack of empathy were offensive.
The PE teacher was fuming at Xiao Luo’s audaciousness. In all his years of teaching and coaching, this was the first time he had ever encountered such an arrogant son of a b*tch in any of his classes. As a physical education teacher, he was physically fit and exuded a powerful and dignified presence. Any student who saw him felt at least a little bit of fear and a lot of respect. But, as it turned out, this student in front of him felt neither.
At this moment, Chu Yue walked. One could not help noticing her soft and beautiful figure. She gently spoke up, “Mr. Wang, you really can’t blame him. It’s Du Pengfei and his friends who provoked Xiao Luo first. If you want to blame someone, blame Du Pengfei. If he hadn’t egged Xiao on, this situation never would have happened.”
Beside her stood the lovely Bai Ling, nodding in agreement.
Facing these two beauties, the PE teacher’s disapproving frown relaxed. Moreover, when Chu Yue and Bai Ling came over, they brought with them a fragrant breeze. As a testosterone-laden middle-aged man, he was used to dealing with male students. Now that he was smelling a woman’s fragrance, it was impossible to say that his heart and mind were not running amok. Of course, he had to keep those impulses in check and squelch any inappropriate thoughts that might cross his mind.
“Well, Chu Yue is right. I was confused for a moment and accidentally blamed the wrong person.”
Teacher Wang agreed with Chu Yue. Then he put on his most serious face and yelled at Du Pengfei, “Du Pengfei, considering that you and your companions have disrupted class by attempting to hurt your schoolmates and by displaying unsportsmanlike behavior, I will apply to the school to issue you your next punishment. In addition, if you do not attain a passing score in PE this semester, you’ll have to take make-up classes next semester.
F*ck, was this the charm of a campus beauty? It wasn’t fair.
Clearly, the ones who were injured were Du Pengfei and his gang. But the person who caused their injuries, Xiao Luo, did not have to take any responsibility for his actions. The punishment fell onto Du Pengfei and his people. They might even have to make up their physical education classes next semester. What a colossal waste of time that would be.
Everyone looked at Du Pengfei and his companions sympathetically. At the same time, they also speculated about the relationship between Chu Yue and Xiao Luo, saying that the campus beauty Chu Yue was extraordinarily stubborn, and anyone who pursued her met with a direct refusal. But it seemed that she already had a boyfriend–he appeared to be none other than Xiao Luo the Fiend, who burst here from out from nowhere. Why else would Chu Yue stand up for him?
On the other hand, when Du Pengfei and his companions heard Teacher Wang’s words, which were like a court sentence, their faces immediately turned gray. They really did have remorse for their actions.
Xiao Luo glanced at Chu Yue, astonished. He was a little surprised that she would speak up for him but kept his thoughts to himself. He turned around and walked to a corner, then took out his mobile phone and continued to play with it.
After Chu Yue and Bai Ling finished talking to Teacher Wang, they trotted toward Xiao Luo.
“Pretentious d*ck, I helped you. Can’t you say a word of thanks?” Chu Yue said, her sweet mouth twisted in a pout.
Xiao Luo didn’t look at her at all. He was playing a game on his mobile, oblivious to everything around him. “I’ve said it. If there’s nothing more, you can go away.”
Chu Yue was so angry she stomped her foot, “Can you talk to me nicely? Will you die if you talk in a friendlier tone?”
She didn’t know where this guy’s superiority came from. She took the initiative to chat with him. Still, he acted like a self-important ass, repelling her and putting thousands of miles between them. How could she not get angry!
“Xiao Luo, Young Mistress Chu wants to be friends with you.”
As besties, Bai Ling and Chu Yue’s confided in each other and shared each other’s secrets. It was therefore only natural that Bai Ling knew how Chu Yue felt about Xiao Luo. No matter how Chu Yue did not allow any boy to get close, he was nevertheless an outstanding guy in all aspects, hence her interest in him. She did have the desire to become friends with him.
As for Xiao Luo, he simply wanted to get through protecting Chu Yue in one piece. After that, he did not want to have any contact with anyone from Huaye. Just like Xu Zhimo, he tried to arrive quietly and leave the people from this world in the same manner, taking nothing from them. So, he resisted her offer of friendship.
Chu Yue did not try to be secretive, “Pretentious d*ck, a lot of unhappy events happened between us, but didn’t those days pass? Let’s bury the hatchet and be friends.”
She then extended her right hand.
Of course, that was not to say that she liked Xiao Luo. No, she simply admired him. Friendship was the only thing she had on her mind.
“We can bury the hatchet, but let’s forget about being friends,” Xiao Luo stood up and said.
“Why?” Chu Yue was annoyed and puzzled.
“Because you were born into a wealthy family, and I’m just a country bumpkin who was born into an ordinary family. We don’t travel in the same circles or have the same frames of reference. I seriously doubt we could ever be friends,” Xiao Luo found a perfunctory reason and dodged the issue.
“Xiao Luo, I’m from an ordinary background too, but Young Mistress Chu and I are very good friends,” Bai Ling said.
Xiao Luo smiled, “You’re a girl. It’s different for me.” He looked at Chu Yue. “Moreover if I’m too close to you, I’m afraid a lot of people will get the wrong impression. Once that misunderstanding occurs, I may be in more trouble.”
“Misunderstanding? What misunderstanding?” Chu Yue blinked her large and beautiful eyes, not knowing the reason.
“The misunderstanding that I’m your boyfriend,” Xiao Luo said calmly.
As soon as Chu Yue heard this, she blushed and shouted, feeling angry and bashful. “What nonsense are you talking about? Even if all the men in the world are dead, I’ll never let you become my boyfriend.”
“So that’s all the more reason not to become friends. It would be disastrous to be misunderstood by others.” Xiao Luo raised his eyebrows, looking blazé.
“Hmph! Fine. Do you think it’s a loss to me if you don’t become my friend? Bai Ling, let’s go. This guy is crazy.” Chu Yue stomped off in a huff, pulling Bai Ling along with her and turning away.
Xiao Luo exhaled a long breath. He sat down and continued to play with his mobile.
