Chapter 53 Beautiful Lady Principal (1)

The more she read Zhou Weiqing’s answers from behind, the greater Ming Hua’s sense of surprise. From his answers, she could easily tell that he had no knowledge about military matters, in fact this rascal likely hadn’t gone through any official schooling in the matter. However, his surprising and audacious answers were fresh and definitely provided a different perspective, not fettered by any conventions. At first glance, it might seem like a load of rubbish, but if you thought it through, it was surprisingly good in its own unpolished way.

Is this rascal really a well rounded genius?! Ming Hua sighed inwardly. Although she still held feelings of hatred for this rascal who had taken advantage of her, she had to admit feelings of admiration for this youth, his talents and accomplishments. After all, he was still much younger than her!

Naturally, Zhou Weiqing knew that Ming Hua was standing beside him, but he couldn’t care less. At most, he would just have to clean the toilets, and though it might be a little humiliating, as compared to the luck he had in escaping the perils of last night, he decided he didn’t really care. After all, if not for the white clad young lady called Tian Er, perhaps he would already be enslaved to the Heavenly Demon Sect by now.

It was still barely halfway through the morning when our dear student Zhou Little Fatty completed his entire paper, and Ming Hua stood right by his side the entire time. Of course, the person who suffered most wasn’t Zhou Weiqing, after all the position she stood in was with Zhou Weiqing to her left, and Ma Qun to her right. Under normal circumstances, Ma Qun would be more than happy to have such a beautiful teacher standing right beside him, but this was during an examination! His knowledge on military matters was no stronger than Zhou Weiqing’s, and with Ming Hua by his side, he couldn’t even copy from someone else no matter how much he wanted to. As such, his entire face was as bitter as a bitter gourd, and he had bitten the pen in his hand so many times that bite marks were left on it.

“Teacher, I’ve finished my paper. Can I hand it in in advance?” Zhou Weiqing struck the paper in his hands, taking a smooth deep breath as he relaxed back into his seat. He did not know the result whether or not he had to clean the toilet, but he had a great time answering the paper, writing as he felt, whatever he thought… Being able to do so, was indeed a soothing feeling.

“No.” Hearing Zhou Weiqing’s words, Ming Hua finally recovered herself. Looking at Zhou Weiqing’s paper once more, she stifled laughter again. Not speaking of his answers, even the spidery scrawl of his ugly handwriting made her want to laugh. “Student Zhou Weiqing, didn’t your previous teachers teach you to examine your answers after completing, to think over what you have written? No matter as a student or a future soldier, you should always be serious about what you do, and attitude is extremely important. This is what we are trying to cultivate in all our students here at the Fei Li Academy. As a military talent, if you are careless and negligent in the details, you could cause a disaster!”

Zhou Weiqing rolled his eyes, this Flower of Hades’ Underworld sure did not let go of any opportunity to put him down! Couldn’t she see that his answers were just his own ramblings? He did not even know the right answers, what was the point of examining?! However, she was his teacher after all, and he had just become the class monitor, he naturally could not rebut her in public. As such, he could only rein it in helplessly.

Of course, for him to reexamine his own answers, that would not be possible. Zhou Weiqing tossed his paper to the corner of his table, and sprawled down onto it, closing his eyes. Since you aren’t going to allow me to submit my paper and leave early, I’ll just take a nap here!

Ming Hua was on the verge of scolding him once more, but she finally remembered her father’s words, glaring at him once more before walking around the class again.

Zhou Weiqing fell into a deep sleep. Although this rascal might be getting stronger at being sneaky and cunning, he had an unbelievably strange optimism and carefree-ness about him. Such a person naturally could get great sleep at any time, any place. Luckily, he did not have a snoring problem, though he did drool a little onto his sleeve as he slept.

As the lesson finally ended with a ear-splitting shrill of the school bell ringing, the students of the commoner class one felt as if their heads were spinning after the entire morning of being tested. That test was just so long, and besides Zhou Weiqing who just wrote whatever he wanted, there were few other students who actually managed to finish everything, and most of their faces were rather black.

“Little Fatty, class has ended.” Shangguan Bing’er walked over to his table and called out to him. Zhou Weiqing was still sleeping soundly, and even that loud bell had not awoken him.

Ma Qun, who was sitting on the other side, said rather jealously: “Boss Zhou is indeed different from us all! He can even fall asleep so soundly during an examination.”

Shangguan Bing’er glanced at Ma Qun, but ignored him. She did not really like this big fellow, a duplicitous guy who often spoke and acted different from his thinking, quite the same type of person as Zhou Weiqing.

Seeing no reaction from Zhou Weiqing, Shangguan Bing’er shouted out exasperatedly: “Little Fatty, time to eat!”

“Ah?! Eat? What’s there to eat?” Zhou Weiqing’s eyes snapped open, drool at the side of his mouth. His eyes were still blurry as he looked around for the food, causing some of the nearby students who had heard Shangguan Bing’er to giggle away.

Shangguan Bing’er took out her handkerchief to wipe his mouth. “Look at you sleeping away, come on let’s go, it’s time for lunch. Did you exhaust yourself making Consolidating Equipment Scrolls last night? We should go back to rest early after school today. You do not have to rush to create the Consolidating Equipment Scrolls, we have more time… Your health is more important.” After wiping away his drool, Shangguan Bing’er helped him up, looking concernedly at him. Seeing his healthy look, she finally relaxed.

Zhou Weiqing grinned and said: “No problem, no problem. As long as some fox spirits do not come at night, how could I have any problems?” When he said this, he spoke loudly on purpose, and Ming Hua, who was almost done collecting the papers, froze imperceptibly.

Right at that moment, a solemn dignified voice rang out from outside the door. “Zhou Weiqing.”

“Ah?” Zhou Weiqing called out as he looked towards the voice, only to see the classroom door open and Dean Xiao walk in, smiling as he waved towards Zhou Weiqing. “Come out a while please.”

Naturally, Zhou Weiqing did not dare delay, turning to Shangguan BIng’er to say: “Bing’er, you go eat in the canteen first, I’ll join you later.”

Shangguan Bing’er nodded slightly, and Zhou Weiqing followed Dean Xiao out of the classroom.

Ma Qun could only look from the side with a face full of envy! Look at his girlfriend, that rascal falling asleep during a test and she’s still so concerned about him, even wiping his saliva for him. Ahhh… Jealousy, Envy, Hate! Why can’t I find a good girl like that? And such a beauty to boot…

As Zhou Weiqing followed Dean Xiao out, another visitor arrived at the door of the commoner class. This time, it wasn’t another teacher, but a noble student. To be exact, it was a young beautiful girl. This red-headed girl directly entered the commoner classroom, heading towards Ming Hua and asking her softly. “Ming Hua Elder Sis, where is Ming Yu? I haven’t seen him in a few days.”

Ming Hua glanced at her rather impatiently, saying: “My brother went back to the frontlines. Why are you still looking for him? Didn’t he state things clearly to you? He won’t have any more connection with you from now on, do not pester him any further.”

“You… you’re Princess Difuya?” Shangguan Bing’er immediately recognized the red head. She was indeed Princess Difuya of their Heavenly Bow Empire, and also Zhou Weiqing’s fiancee! With her pitiful look as she stood beside Ming Hua, she currently looked nothing like a princess.

Hearing someone call out her name, Difuya was started in surprise, turning her head to look. On seeing Shangguan Bing’er, she immediately called out in surprise. “Bing’er? What are you doing here?” Towards this top beauty and genius of their Empire, she naturally recognized her as well. Although she was rather arrogant in nature, she was also clear that her status in the Heavenly Bow Empire was not comparable to Shangguan Bing’er. As such, despite her domineering and rude character, she had a relatively good relation with Shangguan Bing’er. Well, at least, she used to.

Shangguan Bing’er pointed to her own uniform and said: “I’m here with Zhou Weiqing to study in the academy! He was just here earlier, didn’t you see him?” As she said that, she felt her guard raise up. Although Zhou Weiqing had told her earlier that Difuya was in the same academy, knowing was one thing, and seeing was another. She was currently wary of Princess Difuya. After all, she was still considered Zhou Weiqing’s official fiancee now!

Hearing Shangguan Bing’er mention Zhou Weiqing, Difuya’s expression turned ugly. Glancing at Ming Hua, she also saw Ming Hua’s face turn concerned, and she furrowed her brow and said: “Bing’er, how can you be close to Zhou Weiqing? That fellow is shameless and despicable! In the past, he was still the notorious trash of our Heavenly Bow Empire, and even though his Heavenly Jewels have Awakened now, he likely isn’t strong. Do not be fooled by his honest outlook! He is the sort of person who acts proper on the surface, but is a scoundrel in the inside. I do not know why father likes him so much!” 1

Hearing Difuya’s words, both Shangguan Bing’er and Ming Hua were rendered speechless. Ming Hua had a strange expression on her face, looking at Difuya as if she was an idiot. She thought to herself: Even if you are ignorant, you can’t be THAT ignorant! Saying he is a scoundrel, that I agree a hundred percent. But to say he is a trash, then most of the people in the world would all be trash! This Princess… is literally a fool.

Shangguan Bing’er had something different in her mind. When Difuya first opened her mouth and called Zhou Weiqing shameless and despicable, she actually relaxed a little in relief. At least, that showed that Zhou Weiqing had not lied to her, and Difuya did not like him the slightest bit. However, as Difuya continued scolding him, Shangguan Bing’er’s expression also turned uglier. Even if my Little Fatty isn’t anything good, he is still MY Little Fatty. How can you scold my husband like that? No wonder Little Fatty doesn’t want you at all, now I understand!

  1. I couldn’t help but laugh… technically, she isn’t lying about the scoundrel part =p

  1. Ooh they’re going to scold her… let it happen… please…!!! Lol. Thanks for the release. That was fun. 😀

    Lol I just read the preview, she just got schooled. 😀 That’s great! 😀

    This will be fun. 🙂

    1. //Everyone Else – Does this fool have eyes or ears, or a bloody brain in the first place?

      The author has gone out of his way to make Difuya sound like an idiot of the first grade. It’s impossible that she didn’t hear of the rather large disturbance the scoundrel caused affecting many of the noble students.

      1. Well, giving her the benefit of a doubt (not that I’m defending her, hope she dies in a fire and all that mess) when she knew him, he was just a normal human being incapable of becoming even a normal jewel master, let alone a heavenly jewel master. It could be likely that even if she heard rumors of an amazing first year that she would never put the rumors to Zhou Weiqing’s face. Again. Not defending her, just saying it’s actually very likely that this is how it went down.

        1. When he bumped into Ming Yu and Difuya earlier in the story, Little Fatty had a miniature contest of strength with Ming Yu, and did not come out on the losing end!
          This should have set off some enormous alarm bells in Difuya’s head, but I guess she just ignored it in benefit of her sanity, and later insanity. 😛

    2. The most baffling part about this sentence:
      “Bing’er, how can you be close to Zhou Weiqing? That fellow is shameless and despicable! In the past, he was still the notorious trash of our Heavenly Bow Empire, and even though his Heavenly Jewels have Awakened now, he likely isn’t strong. Do not be fooled by his honest outlook!”
      is the strength part… She must be really muddle-headed. Not strong? Girl, you were standing right beside him when he used blink at the skill storing palace, not to mention that he exchanged fairly equal blows with ming yu that has 5 strength enhancing jewels, then you were actually pushed back by the mere shockwaves. You saying he’s not strong after all that? Especially considering that he’s so damn much younger and got his jewels way later than ming yu. There’s a limit to ignorance.

  2. I just noticed:
    “Even if my Little Fatty isn’t anything good, he is still MY Little Fatty. How can you scold my _HUSBAND_ like that?”
    Yes, she just called Little Fatty her husband. Hehe… Finally admitting it.

  3. Other than the weak part….. the princess was sorta right -_-

    That said… why is she so shocked about the hate? This is the guy that her dad favors over her (because of his friendship) and gave permission to rape her.

    If anything, I’m blaming the stupid king for all of this. It seems that there were a few other lovely ladies that’d have married him easily back home. Yet he tried to force his daughter to marry the man whom she viewed as stealing her father -_-

    Idiot King!!!! That said, Difuya should let it go already too…. none of it is really Fatty’s fault after all…. too bad she already have preconceived notions -_-

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    1. She nearly killed him over a minor issue and then tried to cover it up. The king is perhaps looking to consolidate his weak kingdom, but that doesn’t mean he’s making a wrong decision for his daughter. Not anymore, since the scoundrel is on his way to becoming the most powerful individual on the planet.

    2. permission to rape her… really? it was just a figure of speech. Lil princess overreacts too much. If not for plot armor, our MC would have been dead off the bat. And they ran from the scene of the crime. one of them didn’t stay behind to look after him either. It’s one thing to hit someone for (accidentally) peeking and another to maim him with fireball.

    3. The king spoiled his daughter. She’s an arrogant ***** that tried to murder him because she’s seen him as trash and still does and was the king in the wrong for being angry hearing that his daughter (the princess) of the country murdered her fiancee his closest friends and the man that saved his live on more then one occasion son and tried to justify it by saying he peaked on her while bathing. They were to be married so even having sex with her is his right so I don’t think the king in a fit of rage saying he could rape her is as bad or to blame for her being a narcissistic spoiled brat that in a fit of rage tried to kill someone

    4. The man than she viewed as stealing her father ? What the hell was that ?

      Most king (like 99.99%) before being father are king. If MC had died back then, if the king protected his daughter what do you think would have happened with MC father ? Given how weak heavenly empire is, the worth of MC father far outclass his daughter. And that was before MC awaken his jewel.

      Saying it would have been fine if MC ra*ed the princess, do you truly believe the king would have been 100% fine with it ? Sure he wouldn’t kill MC but damn nobody would make believe he wouldn’t have gotten a punishement for it. When he said that is was because of anger and also to show how much she screwed up.

  4. “Time to make the person who is literally engaged to my fiancee realize hes amazing and marrying him is a smart move” – Bing’er
    “Time to make the person who is most talented on the planet and has the backing of a crew that could erase my entire sect without issues my enemy because i dont like him” – Ming Hua
    Why are these people so stupid?

    1. Well, you’re thinking of it from one way which isn’t at all the way the author has intended..
      For Bing’er – She’s his future wife. Of course she’s defending her future husband. She cares deeply for him. If your significant other doesn’t defend you when you’re being continuously badmouthed, you may need a new SO.

      For Ming Hua – She was completely defeated by Zhou Weiqing. Her father was actually considerably injured by him as well. To let someone who is weaker than her, call the man that is stronger than her trash, of course she’ll refute her. As far as her hostilities with Zhou Weiqing, it’s more or less because she was offered as not even a wife but a concubine to him and he VERY openly refused, he cut her dignity down to it’s bare minimum haha.
      Anyways, that’s my take on it.

    2. For bing’er,

      So is she supposed to agree with the princess because she don’t want her to go after little fatty, to keep quiet and let the princess keep doing ? If someone you love is badmouthed, you are obviously going to defend him/her and that is even if what was said was true. Just like it was said the previous chapter, love is blind. That and Bing’er is too pure to even thought that far and she even agreed for him having more than one lover as long she accept them. She choose sharing him over losing him.

      As for Ming hua, she may be a b*tch but even a b*tch act like everyone when they are angry/shamed/feeling wronged which is putting a strong front in this case.

  5. All things considered, she has a point about him being a scroundrel. Still doesn’t change the fact that she’s a condescending backstabbing(or blasting in this case) murderous bitch

      1. I say Bing’er is better. Reason is Zhou Weiqing is dark while Bing’er is light, light shines brighter in the dark while Linley is just well behaved, and Delia cannot fully employ her maternal womanly side.

    1. Was probably too busy being angry to notice, and she is quite the pridefull prick those kind of people if they start looking down on you, then no matter what you do, to open their eyes it’s akin to a SSS ranked quest :p If you read Zhan long think of the tyrant of western (forgot his name so i’m using his avatar name)

  6. Wowowow this preview… wasn’t better to just wipe the floor with difuya’s face?? did she had to say all that ? :S well whatever she would never enter in weiqin’s harem anyway
