Chap 244: Liu Yue Gets Beaten
Translated by Rara
Walking across the arena, You XiaoMo didn’t pay attention to his back, and just walked straight to Block One.
Between the crowd behind him was a figure that had been following him since the beginning. The overcrowding people caused the distance between them to widen, but that figure very soon shortened it, although, the situation still didn’t get any better at this moment.
“Xiao Mo, wait for me.” The young man tried to jump up, afraid that this flood of people would drown him and make the person not be able to see him.
You XiaoMo didn’t know what to say, he turned his head back and said, “BaiLi XiaoYu, can you go back. I’m only going to find my friend, not going on some harrowing journey.”
After what happened this morning, You XiaoMo felt so regretful that his intestines turned bluish (t/n: when you die, you organs turn bluish, thus means regret to death). He absolutely would never have imagined that Tong YueXu, who was originally opposed to BaiLi XiaoYu and him hanging out, would, unexpectedly, give in to BaiLi XiaoYu. He even ignored them and let BaiLi XiaoYu tag along with him. BaiLi XiaoYu himself, not only did he not get hurt by his words, but also fiercely declared that he would definitely swallow that bitter pill.
So, after making the statement, on that very same day, BaiLi XiaoYu let his men help move all of his stuff out from the pavilion and then moved back into the four person room with Jiang XiaoFeng. From there on, BaiLi XiaoYu became so attached to You XiaoMo like a shadow that he couldn’t shake off.
You XiaoMo had explained to him multiple times, but BaiLi XiaoYu still assumed that You XiaoMo went out to do some hard job, thus he refused to go back and insisted on following him.
BaiLi XiaoYu immediately ran toward him, patted his chest and said, “You can be rest assured, I won’t drag your feet.”
You XiaoMo facepalmed, “You have already!”
BaiLi XiaoYu whispered, “If you give me a second chance, I will definitely become an remarkable person that can handle difficulty and won’t rely on everybody.”
Those words might have seemed unconvincing, but in the reality, BaiLi XiaoYu really followed his promise.
The BaiLi clan would never imagine, their youngest son, the little boy that everyone held dear inside their palm and pampered, could become a responsible, independent man that could make decisions on his own and he, himself, even projected a slightly formidable aura. To summarize, a shota transformed into a bishonen that dissimulated a black heart. And all of this, You XiaoMo definitely was the one who had the most credit.
t/n: 腹黑 ( black abdomen) is a term to described the type of person that may seem nice on the outside but evil/have dark thought/sly and foxy on the inside. Also, author literally used shota and bishonen here.
“Actually…using your status, you don’t have to be like that.” You XiaoMo looked at his serious expression and he didn’t know why, but felt his guilty conscience rise up. Seemed like he had caused the little flower of the BaiLi clan to grow crooked, and even You XiaoMo couldn’t tell for sure if this crooked direction is good or bad.
“No, what you said is right. I shouldn’t always rely on my family or YueXu-ge and run to them whenever I have a problem. I want to be a brave man that can solve my own problems and not go crying from everything.” BaiLi XiaoYu earnestly said.
You XiaoMo’s mouth twitched, so before today, you were the type that will cry at everything?!
Then, BaiLi XiaoYu looked at him with an expectant look, “That is why, don’t shoo me away, okay?”
You XiaoMo took a deep breath and sighed, “Fine, you can tag along if you want.”
“Yeahh!” BaiLi XiaoYu immediately cheered, but held back when he saw You XiaoMo looking at him. “Xiao Mo, where are we going to find your friend?”
You XiaoMo paused and cogitated, then he talked as he walked, “Let’s go to the free four person room to check first. He enrolled in this academy at the same times as us, so he shouldn’t have the ability to move away for now.”
Since BaiLi XiaoYu listened to every word You XiaoMo said he had no objection. After some wandering around, they finally found Block One’s dormitory. However, there were several four person rooms there, the two of them couldn’t search every single one, so You XiaoMo suggested asking someone.
The lad looked at You XiaoMo and BaiLi XiaoYu with surprise, one of them was bright, cute and clever, while the other one looked like he was carved out of jade and covered with powder (t/n: fair n smooth skin ), this combination clearly indicated they didn’t belong to Block One.
“What do you need?” The lad saw them stop in front of him, and he took back his surprise before asking.
“Hey, big brother, do you know where Block One’s freshman reside?” You XiaoMo politely asked.
“Fresh man, ah, you want to find someone? This year’s freshman is a third more than last year. Their places are literally everywhere. If you want to find your acquaintance, I’m afraid that even until sunset, you still won’t be able to find the person. How about you guys tell me that person’s name and level, I may be able to help you ask around a bit.” Being stared at by those two black round eyes, the lad couldn’t help but be softhearted.
You XiaoMo and BaiLi XiaoYu spoke at the same time, “Really? Thank you!”
The lad felt funny, “No problem, first, tell me about his situation.”
You XiaoMo immediately replied, “His name is Liu Yue, and he is a Sun level martial artist.”
“Sun level?” The lad stroked his chin, “I never heard of his name before, but if he is a Sun level, in fact, I might know where he lives, you can go check the Sixth Winter Courtyard, he probably is there.”
After saying thanks to the lad, the two of them ran toward the mentioned place.
Block One‘s dormitory was like Block Two’s, it also divided into four courtyards, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, and students were assigned in the respective order according to their strength from high to low. Each courtyard was also divided into six smaller yards. For example, like what that lad just told them the Sixth Winter courtyard, there was also First Winter, to Second Winter… and finally, Sixth winter, which the living condition was also in the respective order from high to low. So, Liu Yue’s room was a four person room, and since his level was also at the bottom, therefore, he should be residing in the worst courtyard.
Fortunately, the Winter Courtyard had an instruction sign so it was easy to locate. Fifteen minutes later, the two of them finally found the Sixth Winter Courtyard that the lad had told them about. The living condition here was as terrible as Block Two’s. As they moved all the way inside, they saw no one at all, even if there was, there were just a few people hastily walking by.
Not until they reached the innermost part of the courtyard did they finally see some silhouettes flocking into a circle. There was non-stop cursing, sneering, giggling and loud laughter coming continuously from those bunch of people.
When You XiaoMo and BaiLi XiaoYu approached, they found out, in the middle of the group was a man being beaten by multiple guys, as his back was shown in front of their eyes so they couldn’t see the face. His clothes was covered in mud and dirt, his hair was messy, and everyone could tell that he was in a difficult position.
At that time, a tough hefty dude spit on the man under his feet, his face was as hideous as he started cursing, “Liu Yue, where is your arrogance ah? If you have the guts, fucking stand up! Why is that you, who dares to embarrass our third young master Chai, right now act like a chicken? Stand up ah, trash!”
After saying that, he lifted up his feet and ruthlessly stomped on Liu Yue a few times. The others not only didn’t stop that guy’s actions, they even laughed *haha* loudly at Liu Yue’s sorry figure.
You XiaoMo expression changed from surprise to anger, he didn’t expect Liu Yue to have to suffer such treatment, if it was not for that dude calling Liu Yue’s name, he probably wouldn’t be able to recognize this one on the ground was Liu Yue.
As his anger rushed to his head, You XiaoMo pushed people aside straight away. Those people didn’t expect someone would rush in, so they couldn’t act in time, that hefty dude who stomped on Liu Yue was pushed behind two steps as his hateful feet were finally removed from Liu Yue’s body.
“Liu Yue, how are you?” You XiaoMo didn’t mind how dirty Liu Yue was, he helped Liu Yue sweep off all the dirt.
In fact, Liu Yue was a complete innocent passerby in this matter, it was not his fault. If You XiaoMo had known earlier, he wouldn’t let Ling Xiao be disguised as Liu Yue, so that Liu Yue wouldn’t end up in such situation.
Looking at those people’s attitude it seemed like this was not the first time they abused Liu Yue, they probably had fixed their attention on Liu Yue the first time he entered the academy.
“Young…young master?” Liu Yue eyes were swollen shut like a walnut, he couldn’t fully open them fully and could barely see who arrived. Although he couldn’t see the face clearly, he could recognize the voice.
“I’m so sorry, this is all my fault!” You XiaoMo quickly helped him up.
“No, it not your fault, young master.” Liu Yue shook his head, he knew the reason why those people attacked him, but until now he had never put the blame on young master and that great man. If it hadn’t been for them, he wouldn’t be able to enter Dao Xin Academy in his lifetime. Such a hardship was nothing compared to the day when he was still on the Life and Death street, as his hands and feet were once chopped by people, and yet he still managed to handle them all.
You XiaoMo knew he was telling the truth, but he still felt guilty ah!
“Where is this brat coming from, you dare to wreck your uncle’s work, do you want to die?” That hefty man, after his feet managed to land on the ground steadily after the push, he saw the one who came was two brats, so he suddenly got angry.
BaiLi XiaoYu didn’t wait for You XiaoMo to talk, he stood up instantly and put his hand on his waist, with a robust aura that didn’t lose to that hefty man, “You dare to claim yourself ‘uncle’ in front of my face?! And not to mention, you dare to hit my people? You are the one that is sick of living! What is your name, and give me the name of the one who ordered you!”
The flock suddenly got frightened, but not because of BaiLi XiaoYu’s words, but because they saw BaiLi XiaoYu’s expensive clothing, which told them, he might not from an ordinary family. In that moment, not a single one dared to snap, after all they were just freshman, if they poked a fight with students that had some background, in the end they would be the ones who got into trouble.
That hefty dude cautiously asked, “Sir, what is your name? We came here on Third young master Chai’s order, to add some color onto this brat’s face a bit.”
BaiLi XiaoYu immediately flipped, “Third young master Chai, Chai Jun? That fucking grandson even dared to touch BaiLi XiaoYu’s men, looks like you lot have lived too long.”
After hearing his announcement, their legs almost gave in, BaiLi XiaoYu? They might have not heard the name, but the two words BaiLi, how could they never have heard about it. The BaiLi Clan that even the Chai Clan didn’t dare to provoke, no wonder he could bravely call Chai Jun grandson.
You XiaoMo heard their conversation, he helped Liu Yue stand up, then his expression turned gloomy in an instant, “Chai Jun again, I will not let him get away this time,”
“That’s right, don’t let him off the hook.” BaiLi XiaoYu added fuel to the fire.
Looking at You XiaoMo and Baili XiaoYu’s ill-intent expression, everyone felt a chill up their spine.
