Chapter 11: You Can’t Be Thinking About Expelling Me, Can You? (Part One)

Chen Yu could remember Xing Bi so vividly—but not because of Xing Bi’s achievements.
Rather, it was because his sister, Chen Siwen… had been ruined by that very woman.
From what he could remember, he was in Senior One at that time, and he was also present at the scene. From where he was, right under the ring of the college entrance examination, he witnessed Xing Bi shattering his sister’s Sea of Qi with his very own eyes.
Shattering Chen Siwen’s future and everything that it could possibly entail.
But even so, he simply didn’t like the look of Bi Qi. That was all. It wasn’t really because of his so-called “hatred.”
After all, the ring of the college entrance examination was, in itself, a high-risk examination.
Without solid strength, injury was inevitable if you were reluctant to concede defeat.
It was considered very lucky to survive the examination in the ring.
The annual college entrance examinations in major cities had never failed to contribute to the number of casualties each year.
Amidst the “troubled times” of a highly militarized world, lives were ultimately just statistics.
Moreover, Xing Bi hadn’t meant to strike so harshly. It hadn’t been intentional.
That woman was just stubborn by nature, which meant she would go all out on her opponents and direct every hit at their vital points.
And people like her often got to live longer…
Standing in his original spot, Chen Yu listened to Xing Bi’s speech for a while. But he got bored of listening to it and quietly slipped away from the group and left the field.
He randomly found a big tree and squatted behind it. Then, he pulled out a cigarette, lit it, and stuffed it into his mouth.

Because the air was heavy, the smoke from his cigarette slowly rose and dissipated thereafter in the gentle breeze.
Chen Yu squinted his eyes. His thoughts hung over his mind just like the thick cigarette smoke drifting around him.
“Capital University, is it…”

When he had finished smoking one Red Pagoda Mountain cigarette, Chen Yu pricked his ears in the direction of the field and found that Xing Bi was still giving her speech. So, he took out the pack of cigarettes again.
This time, he directly pulled out five cigarettes and lit them all. Then, he put them all into his mouth.

It was only when Xing Bi finished her speech and left the podium that Chen Yu rejoined his class.
His homeroom teacher walked up to him and asked in a low voice, “Chen Yu, where were you just now?”
“For half an hour?”
“Can’t be helped?” Chen Yu shrugged and spread his arms. Then he said, “The moment I heard that woman speak, I just felt like taking a dump.”
Homeroom teacher: “…” (speechless)
Chen Yu said, “Thankfully, she finished talking. If not, I would have collapsed from all that sh*tting.”
The other students around them couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
His homeroom teacher glared at him and ordered, “Today after school, write me a 1000-word self-criticism paper!”
“Sure.” Chen Yu nodded and said, “The title will be ‘Senior Xing Bi is here, I should not sh*t so much.\'”
“Hahaha…” The surrounding students laughed even louder.
This drew the attention of the principal, who was still on the podium, addressing the school, and he cast frequent sidelong glances at them.
The homeroom teacher did not dare to say anything more. He merely gave Chen Yu a fierce glare and said, “You wait and see how I deal with you tonight!”
About twenty minutes later, the pep rally ended.
The leaders stepped off the platform and left the school premises.
The students returned to class in an orderly manner and continued their cultivation.
Back in the classroom, the homeroom teacher didn’t reprimand Chen Yu.
Because in doing so, he would disturb the other students.
Naturally, as someone witty and mischievous, Chen Yu also knew this, but he totally didn’t take the homeroom teacher’s previous threat to heart at all.
He didn’t even intend to write the 1000-word self-criticism paper.
Would any serious student write a self-criticism paper…
However, two hours before the end of school, a problem that was far bigger than a “self-criticism” paper came along.
The classroom door of Class Two, Senior Three Year was pushed open, and a dozen or more people entered in succession.
Among them were the principal, discipline master, and other leaders. There were also a number of uniformed policemen.
The homeroom teacher hurriedly went forward and asked nervously, “Principal, what is going on…”
The principal, however, ignored the homeroom teacher and directly swept his sharp, harsh gaze over the entire room. In an authoritative tone, he said, “Who is Chen Yu? Step forward.”
At the sound of these words, Chen Yu stopped cultivating and subconsciously looked towards the crowd at the door. Then, he caught a glimpse of the figure of the lady boss of the cigarette store.
Was it possible for Chen Yu to still not understand what was going on? He immediately put on a bewildered expression and looked around the room, pretending as if he was looking to see who this “Chen Yu” was.
But the eyes of his classmates exposed him…
Therefore, the principal, discipline master, as well as the policemen, all cast their eyes on him…
The lady boss of the cigarette store also stared at him…
The lady boss pointed at Chen Yu and said, “It’s him! It’s him! That’s him!”
Chen Yu could only summon up his courage, put on a brave front, and say, “Hello, auntie. Can I help you with anything?”
“And he’s even calling me auntie!” The lady boss was even angrier than before and demanded, “Catch him! The cigarette thief!”
The moment these words were said, the homeroom teacher and all the students in the class were shocked.
“Steal… cigarette thief?” The homeroom teacher was shocked. He asked, “Is there some misunderstanding? The students in this class don’t smoke, do they? Chen Yu doesn’t smoke either, so how could he have stolen your cigarettes?”
“That’s right.” Chen Yu nodded approvingly and agreed. “I don’t smoke.”
An old police officer walked straight up to Chen Yu. First, he pulled out his identification card and showed it to Chen Yu. Then, in a very experienced and seasoned manner, he searched Chen Yu’s pocket.
Soon enough, he found a near-empty pack of Red Pagoda Mountain cigarettes.
“OH…” The entire class was in an uproar.
Chen Yu also frowned and looked around the room, saying, “Who put this in my pocket?”
The students: “…” (speechless)
The homeroom teacher: “…” (speechless)
The principal: “…” (speechless)
Seeing that no one was going to respond, Chen Yu looked at the old policeman and said, “Uncle policeman, this matter must be investigated thoroughly. Cigarettes are no small matter indeed!”
“Don’t fool around. It’s useless.” The old policeman was expressionless as he threw his arms around Chen Yu to detain him. “You’re suspected of theft,” he told him. “Come with us to the police station.”
“There must be some kind of misunderstanding! You’re arresting the wrong guy. He’s just a student!” The homeroom teacher was panicking.
“It’s him! If he’d just stolen cigarettes, then so be it. But he even threw ten dollars at me. That’s humiliating!” The lady boss took out her tablet and replayed the CCTV video that the surveillance camera in her store had captured.
Sure enough, in the video, everyone could clearly see that Chen Yu was the one who’d stolen the cigarettes.
“This… this…” the homeroom teacher stammered.
The principal, discipline master, and other leaders turned ghastly pale in the face.
“Alright.” Chen Yu shrugged his shoulders and said, “I admit that I took the cigarettes. But you weren’t going to sell them to me, and besides, I left you money for the cigarettes. How is that stealing?”
“You left money? Are you talking about that 10 bucks?” the old policeman said.
“Yes! I didn’t even ask her for change, and she actually called the police? This is all just a bit too much, don’t you think? Is there such an overwhelming supply of policemen?”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
“Give you change?” The lady boss felt her blood pressure rising as she said, “Red Pagoda Mountains that cost one thousand six hundred and eighty bucks. You just throw me ten bucks and still dare to ask for change?”
“Holy crap? One thousand, six hundred and eighty bucks?” Chen Yu almost bit his tongue off. “Are you selling the Himalayan Mountains?”
The old policeman carefully observed the subtle changes in Chen Yu’s expression and confirmed that he wasn’t pretending. He roughly understood what was going on, so he loosened his grip and said, “You don’t know how much cigarettes cost, do you?”
“Whether I know or not, one thousand six hundred and eighty bucks for a pack of Red Pagoda Mountains is just too crazy, isn’t it?” Chen Yu said. “These black-hearted merchants, why don’t they just kill to earn their money for the new year?”
The crowd: “…” (speechless)
