Chapter 152: The Reappearance of the Pig's Head
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
"Tsk tsk... Miss Tong, do you want to use your whip to teach Su Li a lesson now?" Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed as he gazed at Tong Li with a spurious smile.
The voice that entered her ears caused Tong Li to feel like she was waking up from a dream, and when she slightly turned her head to look, only then did she realize that the person at the same table with Su Li was precisely the violet-clothed youth that slapped her tens of times at the restaurant three months ago.
Instantly, her face went ghastly pale. "You...You are..."
She never thought that she would encounter that violet-clothed youth here!
In her eyes, this youth was a devil!
Maybe at ordinary times, she would wish nothing more than to kill the youth and be relieved; however, when the youth really appeared before her, her heart couldn't help itself from trembling. The scene that occurred in the restaurant three months ago had long since left a lingering shadow within her heart.
"What, Miss Tong, are you really that surprised?" Duan Ling Tian grinned as if he was greeting a familiar person.
"You know her?" Su Li's brows knitted as he glanced at Duan Ling Tian with a weird gaze.
Xiao Yu, Xiao Xun, and Tian Hu glanced at Duan Ling Tian as well, as they had all noticed that when this Tong Li saw Duan Ling Tian, it was like a mouse seeing a cat. They vaguely guessed that something they didn't know about had surely happened between Duan Ling Tian and Tong Li...
Tong Li took a deep breath. Only now did she realize that this was Paladin Academy and that she was very safe here. Instantly, her eyes went cold as she stared at Duan Ling Tian. "This Miss has been looking for you for three months. Never did I expect you to deliver yourself to me.... Let me see where you hide this time! You're dead for sure! I'll get my Cousin Brother to catch you, and I'll tear you into pieces with my bare hands before burning your bones and scattering your ashes!"
"What, could it be that Miss Tong thinks that since this is Paladin Academy, I won't dare to touch you?" Duan Ling Tian's eyes narrowed into a line as he heard Tong Li's threats, and a sneer emerged on the corners of his mouth.
"So what if I think that?" Tong Li grunted coldly as her eyes flickered with killing intent. Never in her lifetime would she forget what happened three months ago. Only when the violet-clothed youth dies before her will she be able to vent the hatred within her heart!
A violet shadow flashed by.
At the same time, the clear sound of a slap echoed out, and Duan Ling Tian, who had left his seat, was seated once more. Since she wanted to tear him into pieces and burn his bones before scattering his ashes, he didn't need to be courteous anymore!
"You..." Tong Li, whose face had an extra hand imprint, had an icy cold gaze. This violet-clothed youth actually hit her again! And he even did it in front of so many Paladin Academy students! How would she stand her ground at Paladin Academy in the future?
Her gaze was completely enveloped with rage and hatred, and the hand that held her black whip even started to tremble... but she didn't dare to make a move, because she knew that once she did, she would suffer even greater retaliation...
Su Li, Xiao Yu, and the others were dumbstruck, as they realized that there seemed to be a deep grudge that was impossible to reconcile between Duan Ling Tian and the red-clothed girl. They had all heard the ruthless things the red-clothed girl said earlier; she actually hated Duan Ling Tian to such a degree!
The girl behind Tong Li never imagined that Duan Ling Tian would dare hit Tong Li, and after being dumbstruck for a moment, her face went grim as she looked at Duan Ling Tian and shouted, in a grim voice, "You're dead! Do you know who she is?"
"Yes, you're dead, you actually dared to hit Miss Li!" The young man with a wretched appearance looked at Duan Ling Tian as if he had seen something unbelievable...
"Who she is?" Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled before looking at Tong Li once more. "Isn't it only the Fair Sun County's County Governor's daughter, the Cousin Sister of Fifth Prince, Miss Tong. I'm right, aren't I?"
The Fair Sun County's County Governor's daughter?
Fifth Prince's Cousin Sister?
Maybe the Paladin Academy students present didn't pay any attention to the first identity, but the second one was more than enough to make everyone besides Duan Ling Tian experience changes in their expressions...
The Fifth Prince was a descendant of the Imperial Family, the son of the current Emperor! A status so exalted that not many people in the entire Crimson Sky Kingdom could compare...
Xiao Yu, Xiao Xun, and Tian Hu's expressions went grim, as they never expected the red-clothed girl had such an identity. She was actually the Cousin Sister of the Fifth Prince!
Su Li's brows knitted, and his eyes were suffused with a trace of coldness.
"You... You know this Miss' identity and you still dared hit this Miss?" Tong Li stared at Duan Ling Tian like she was looking at a madman...
"If I hadn't hit you just now, would you have let me off?" Duan Ling Tian smiled indifferently.
"How could that be possible? This Miss will return those gifts you gave me that day a hundred fold, a thousand fold, or even ten thousand fold! Hoping that this Miss will let you off is utterly a fool's dream!" Tong Li sneered. She felt that Duan Ling Tian was imagining the impossible.
In her eyes, Duan Ling Tian was no different from a dead man.
"That's it! If you wouldn't have let me off even if I hadn't hit you, then why would I be afraid of you?" The corners of Duan Ling Tian's mouth curled into a malicious smile.
His body flashed out once more.
Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap! Slap!
Clear slapping sounds echoes out time after time, and before long, Tong Li's face become like a pig's head, just like it did three months ago.
"You...You..." The burning pain that came from her face caused Tong Li to be practically numb, but she currently seemed to feel no pain, as she only felt more embarrassed than had ever been before. Her eyes were filled with malice.
"I what?" Duan Ling Tian sneered as an awe-inspiring killing intent focused within his eyes!
This Tong Li was on her high horse that day; she was acting as if everyone else was only an ant in front of her. After that, he taught Tong Li a lesson, and he originally thought that she would repent and mend her ways, but the facts proved that his education towards Tong Li that day was a failure. Otherwise, Tong Li wouldn't run up to him and be enraged and threaten to tear him to pieces before burning his bones and scattering his ashes!
Since Tong Li had long since hated him to the core, it was no use crying over spilled milk, so why not teach her another lesson?
In any case, he never once thought that Tong Li would shake his hand and make peace, so now he decided be a tad more carefree and do whatever he wanted to do!
Detest someone, then beat them!
Beat them until they didn't dare be complacent again!
Beat them until they didn't dare be arrogant again!
Beat them until they didn't dare talk back again!
Tong Li inhaled a deep breath and didn't dare speak another word, as she didn't doubt in the slightest that if she were to voice another ruthless remark, this violet-clothed youth would hit her without the slightest hesitation.... She chose to endure!
Her heart trembled and warped as she noticed the surrounding gazes that looked at her with in a strange manner. The hatred in her eyes were practically at its limits.
In this lifetime, if she lived, then there would be no violet-clothed youth, and if the violet-clothed youth lived, then she would not!
"You'll regret it!" Tong Li couldn't help herself from leaving a last remark before turning around and leaving, not even daring to look back.
Only now did the girl that was originally following behind Tong Li recover from being struck with terror. She briefly glanced at Duan Ling Tian with eyes filled with terror before leaving to chase after Tong Li.
Within the spacious cafeteria, the corner at which Duan Ling Tian sat was deathly silent!
Everyone who didn't know Duan Ling Tian looked at him with gazes filled with terror. This violet-clothed youth actually was not afraid of even the Fifth Prince!
Who the heck was he?
"Hmm?" Being stared at by so many people caused Duan Ling Tian to frown. He coldly swept them with his gaze.
Instantly, these people withdrew their gazes, and didn't dare look at Duan Ling Tian again. They couldn't calm the shock in their hearts for a long time.
Only then did Duan Ling Tian take his seat.
"Duan Ling Tian, you..." Xiao Yu had a bitter smile on his face. He never imagined that Duan Ling Tian was so bold that he actually even dared to beat the Cousin Sister of the Fifth Prince, and even beat her to that extent.... For a moment, he didn't even know what to say.
"Duan Ling Tian, you're too rash." Xiao Xun frowned. He was a member of the Xiao Clan, so he understood the Fifth Prince and knew that the Fifth Prince was a fierce and ambitious person. He knew that the Fifth Prince was no simple figure, even to the extent that he might become the next Emperor of the Crimson Sky Kingdom.
"Duan Ling Tian, did you formed a deep and irreconcilable grudge with that Tong Li before?" Su Li asked Duan Ling Tian. This was exactly the question that was within the hearts of Xiao Yu and the others.
"Yes." Duan Ling Tian nodded, then he slowly recounted the conflict between him and Tong Li three months ago.
"So that's how it is. Looks like even if you hadn't hit her today, it would still be impossible for her to let you off." Tian Hu came to an understanding.
Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun both came to understand this as well, so Duan Ling Tian and Tong Li had long since been like fire and ice, thus Duan Ling Tian teaching Tong Li a lesson today counted for nothing.
"In other words, this time it was she who came of her own accord to seek a beating." Su Li's eyes were suffused with coldness.
"You can put it that way." Duan Ling Tian smiled indifferently with a completely unconcerned expression. "Enough. Let's not speak of her; talking about her is just depressing!"
However, he being unconcerned didn't mean that Xiao Yu and the others weren't concerned either.
"Duan Ling Tian, why don't put up in the academy with me and Su Li from now on? Even though that Fifth Prince has an exalted status, he wouldn't dare act rashly within Paladin Academy" Tian Hu suggested.
"Yeah, Duan Ling Tian, I think Tian Hu is right; you should put up in the academy," Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun said to Duan Ling Tian.
Su Li gazed at Duan Ling Tian as well.
Duan Ling Tian could notice that Su Li's cold eyes had a rare trace of concern, and he couldn't help but feel warmth in his heart.
"I know you all have good intentions, but I've got a plan, so you don't have to worry." Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled. As his eyes focused, a fierce light flashed within.
Suddenly, a black bolt of lightning flashed out of Duan Ling Tian's sleeve before directly jumping onto the table. It was precisely the little black python that Duan Ling Tian had brought along with him...
This little black python extended its head and sucked in a bowl of meat and vegetable stock, eating with great relish.
"This is?" Xiao Yu's and the others' gazes were all attracted by the little black python.
Xiao Xun's gaze descended onto the little black python as he exclaimed, in a low voice, "What a unusual snake. The gold striations on its body seemed to be like ancient text.... Eh, there's even a single horn on its head. What breed is this? I've never seen nor heard of it before!"
"Duan Ling Tian, is this your pet?" Tian Hu gulped down a mouthful of saliva, as even he could perceive that this little python wasn't simple.
Not mentioning anything else, just the speed at which the little python flashed out earlier was something he couldn't even catch a trace of.... All he felt was a black bolt of lightning flash past before the little python appeared out of thin air.
"Yes." Duan Ling Tian didn't deny it; even he never expected that this mischievous little fellow would come out. He swung his palm across to drag it back into his sleeve.
Hiss hiss~ The little python swiftly flicked its tongue as if it was protesting against Duan Ling Tian's actions, but unfortunately, its protests were to no avail!
After the stir the little python made, the atmosphere at Duan Ling Tian's table eased up slightly, but Xiao Yu and the othesr were still worried about Duan Ling Tian, as the person Duan Ling Tian offended was the Imperial Family's Fifth Prince after all!
