Chapter 240: Tianlan Is About to Smack a Few Faces Again
It had taken Tu Xiupei ten years to move up from Level 5 Gathering Spirit to high-level Spiritualist. Feng Tianlan, on the other hand, had become a Middle Stage Spiritualist in a few months. The difference was night and day. She didn’t stand a chance!
As the saying went, “Despair will not come, so long as you do not compare yourself to others.”
Tu Xiupei sat down, eyeing the testing rock as it revealed Feng Tianlan’s strength. The blood drained from her face, and she paled at once. She clenched the handle with such force that the green veins on her hands popped out. Middle Stage Spiritualist…that was barely one stage below her current rank!
How had Feng Tianlan progressed at such incredible speed in just a few short months? At this rate, it was only a question of time before Feng Tianlan surpassed her!
No, she would never allow that to happen!
She could not permit this threat any longer. She had to find a way to end Feng Tianlan’s life—fast.
Si Mobai was sitting in the middle. As he watched Feng Tianlan withdraw her attack, his ice-cold demeanor softened ever so slightly, almost revealing his inner thoughts: my fiancée is the strongest, and I’m so proud of her!
Luo Zhouquan looked surprised, then let out a disdainful grunt. “There must be something wrong with the testing rock.”
Luo Yunzhu rolled her eyes at him. “Don’t be such an ignorant fool. You’ll be laughed at.”
The testing rock had never been wrong. Moreover, as far as Luo Yunzhu knew, Feng Tianlan’s powers had already reached those of a high-level Spiritualist. Soon, she would rank among the Spiritual Grandmasters. In truth, she must have concealed her real strength during this test.
Luo Zhouquan scoffed. Before Chuling could test her Spiritual Force, he leaped forward and blocked her way. “No slave has ever attended Blue Flame Academy.”
Even if embarrassing Feng Tianlan was out of his reach, he was still more than capable of making things difficult for a lowly servant.
Chuling glanced at Luo Zhouquan and instinctively stepped back. Suddenly, she straightened her back and glared at him. “Young Master Luo, the wound on your face has not healed yet.” She didn’t mind throwing a few more punches at him.
Chuling’s words reminded him of that time when he’d had his head handed to him. His face became twisted as a hint of cruelty flashed in his eyes. “As a pupil of this Academy and the Dean’s son, I have the right to tell a lowly slave like you to scram. Your very existence is an insult to us nobles.”
Since he was a child, no one had ever dared to hit him. She was the first exception!
Seeing the opportunity, Tu Xiupei took a deep breath and turned toward Feng Tianlan, then said: “Sister, I know you mean well, but rules are rules. Surely, we can’t make these young masters and ladies sit at the same table as a slave. That would be too…Anyhow, we better send Chuling home. I’ll personally teach her how to cultivate.”
As she finished talking, the young aristocrats started protesting left and right in disgust.
“I’m the son of a general! I’ll never eat with a slave nor share a teacher with them. That would be so disgraceful!”
“Every student in this Academy comes from blue blood. Even the most worthless among us weren’t born to servants. The one thing I absolutely cannot accept is a slave coming here.”
Eager to exploit the situation, Luo Zhouquan spearheaded the outcry, as if afflicted by a great injustice. “Today, if that slave girl is allowed to study here, I will immediately stop coming to class. After all, there’s no shortage of schools in the South Winds Nation.”
“Yeah! I can’t stand being the classmate of a slave. It’s either her or me. If I have to boycott my classes, I will!”
Led by the Dean’s son, the room exploded into an uproar, chanting, “It’s either her or me!”
Seeing the situation sour, Chuling walked toward Feng Tianlan and muttered, “Maybe I should…”
“Are you guys sure?” Feng Tianlan’s gaze swept over the crowd.
Luo Yunzhu quickly understood Feng Tianlan’s stance on this matter and became excited. Ha! Tianlan is about to smack a few faces again. How thrilling!
