Chapter 61: Taking things into my own hands
“Nalan, it really was you…” Murong An heard the conversation coming from the Sound Stone and stared at Nalan Lan with disbelief.
“ I…” Nalan Lan never expected that Sima You Yue would have this item. She thought that he did not have any evidence, but now this was definitely conclusive proof, rendering her unable to dispute anything.
“Director, you’ve heard the conversation. He Qiu Zhi was merely a henchman, the real mastermind was Nalan Lan. She’s the one who wanted to kill me.” Sima You Yue said.
The Teaching Director’s face was so black and thunderous. He didn’t think that Sima You Yue would actually be able to do this, shooting Nalan Lan so directly.
If she was an ordinary person, it would be fine to expel her. However, Nalan Lan was the genius of the Nalan Clan. If she were to be expelled, the family members would definitely not let him off easily. Even if he was now the Teaching Director of this Academy, he was still restricted by the family.
“Director, you’ve seen the evidence. Please pass a fair judgement on my students.” Feng Zhi Xing looked at the way the Teaching Director was behaving and said directly.
“This, Sima You Yue, this only has the voices. They’ve only mentioned the name of Miss Nalan but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s Nalan Lan. So this evidence is not solid enough.” The Teaching Director thought for a while and said this sentence that even he found hard to believe.
When the surrounding students heard this, they all sucked in a breath.
“Director, what do you mean by this?” Feng Zhi Xing said coldly.
The Teaching Director appeared as if he was very satisfied by the explanation that he had come up with and said, “This is exactly what I mean. The evidence is not satisfactory and is not enough to incriminate Nalan Lan. As a result, it is not possible to do anything towards Nalan Lan.”
“Director, how could you be like this?!” Sima You Le shouted at the Teaching Director.
“Sima You Le, what kind of attitude are you showing me!” The Teaching Director looked at Sima You Le unsatisfactorily, “If you continue being this way, I might even charge you with disrespect against a teacher! You…”
The Teaching Director had yet to finish speaking when he felt as if he saw someone flash past. After that, Nalan Lan suddenly screamed.
“Sima You Yue, what are you doing!” The Teaching Director shouted when he saw that Sima You Yue was standing in front of Nalan Lan and had placed a dagger on her neck when everyone was not looking.
“What am I doing? Can’t you see?” Sima You Yue said, “In any case, you have already decided to favor her. The evidence is clear but you won’t punish her. It looks like harming another student can’t mean much. I’m just thinking that since this is the case, I can just take things into my own hands and settle this. I’m not sure what will happen if this blade accidentally slips. Will her head still remain on her neck?”
“Stay your hand!” The Teaching Director anxiously shouted when he saw that Sima You Yue’s dagger was moving.
“Why should I stop?” Sima You Yue stared at the teaching director mockingly, “So many students have heard the conversation between He Qiu Zhi and Nalan Lan but, no matter what, you seem to want to say it isn’t her. Since this is the case, I can kill her but still claim that it wasn’t me. Anyway, I believe that the General’s residence has the power to keep everyone silent.”
“You…” The Teaching Director saw that a line of blood had started to form under Sima You Yue’s blade that was pressed against Nalan Lan’s neck and wanted to quickly pull them apart. However, Fen Zhi Xing blocked him.
The two of them exchanged two moves before separating. The Teaching Director glared at Feng Zhi Xing and shouted, “Master Feng, what are you doing? By blocking me are you planning to let Sima You Yue kill Nalan Lan?”
Feng Zhi Xing stood in front of Sima You Yue and looked at the Teaching Director, saying, “I feel that Sima You Yue has a point. Since you are unwilling to pass a fair judgement on behalf of my students, I will allow him to settle things himself. I will allow him to settle things before I punish him.”
Sima You Yue almost laughed when she heard what Feng Zhi Xing had said. What did he mean that he would allow her to settle things before punishing her, by that time, Nalan Lan would already be dead. He just had to expel her and things would be settled, but at that time the Nalan Clan would have lost a genius but all she had to do was leave the Academy.
Furthermore, she was certain that the the Teaching Director did not dare to really let her harm Nalan Lan, if not, he would have no way to give an account to the Nalan Clan.
“Feng Zhi Xing, I want to punish you!” The Teaching Director said, “But if you move aside now, I will not pursue it.”
The Teaching Director did not know how strong Feng Zhi Xing was, he only knew that he was an important person to the Principal. As a result, he did not wish to fight him right now.
The way he saw it, Feng Zhi Xing was offending his superiors and obstructing his enforcement of the law. Giving him this chance could be said to be treating him fairly. However, Feng Zhi Xing did not plan to accept his good graces.
“Since you are unable to conduct things justly, it is a given that I would no longer be able to believe your words.” Feng Zhi Xing acted as if he was very earnest and said, “As a result, I will no longer allow you to harm my student any longer. If you want to punish me then go ahead!”
“Sima You Yue, do you know what kind of ending you will meet if you dare to harm Nalan Lan?” The Teaching Director turned to say to Sima You Yue when he saw that Feng Zhi Xing refused to move and that Sima You Yue’s dagger could take Nalan Lan’s life any moment.
“Won’t I just be expelled.” Sima You Yue smirked maliciously, “But before I even get expelled, I will do as I please!”
After saying this, she brandished her dagger and prepared to slash it across Nalan Lan.”
The people standing around were shocked by Sima You Yue’s actions as the Teaching Director hastened to call out.
When Sima You Yue’s blade was just 1cm away from Nalan Lan’s neck, a terrifying spirit pressure came from the School building, freezing everyone on the compound in place. Only Feng Zhi Xing was able to turn his body to look at the place which the spirit pressure was coming from.
That place was the Principal’s office.
The window of the Principal’s office opened as a person flew out from the inside, landing on the Plaza. He looked at Sima You Yue and Nalan Lan, walked over to pull Nalan Lan out of Sima You Yue’s clutches.
After that, he released the terrifying spirit pressure.
“Everyone else disperse. The few of you, come with me to the Principal’s office!” The Principal looked at Sima You Yue and gang, clasped his hands behind his back and left.
Nobody dared to dispute the Principal’s words and everyone who had come to see the exciting show had left. Sima You Yue and Feng Zhi Xing, Sima You Le, the Teaching Director, Nalan Lan and He Qiu Zhi followed the Principal to his office.
Nalan Lan covered her neck with her hands, hatefully glaring at Sima You Yue. It was too sudden just now and she did not even notice when Sima You Yue had come close to her. Just now, she really felt Sima You Yue’s strong urge to kill. She knew that if the Principal had not appeared, Sima You Yue would really have killed her!
Sima You Yue glanced at Nalan Lan and made an action of slitting her throat. Looking at her involuntarily retracting her neck, she beamed.
After that, she looked at Feng Zhi Xing who had walked in front of her. She had noticed that under the Principal’s spirit pressure, he actually managed to retain his movement. This meant that he was stronger than the Principal.
The Principal was known to be the strongest person in the country of Dong Chen, even stronger than Sima Lie. Feng Zhi Xing did not look that old, was he really stronger than the Principal?
What was a person like this hiding in a school for?
