TWQQF ch 263 - Fighting Among Themselves; The Gu's Are Coming (14)

 In the main structure of the Cheng’s resident!

“Sister! Big sister! Big Sister~~~!”

Giggling noises came from outside the courtyard. Cheng Xiao Xiao, who was planting seeds in the courtyard, turned and saw her little sister in pink running toward her with a big smile.

Behind her followed Lu Zhu. When they got closer, Lu Zhu curtsied and said, “Miss!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao nodded at her and put down the little spade in her hand. Looking at her little sister, she asked, “What you calling me for? You have another little secret to share with me? Are you going to tell me that mom’s crying?”

TWQQF ch 262 - Fighting Among Themselves; The Gu's Are Coming (13)


All 22 of them stood up at the same time and bowed to the dean apologetically!

“The law does not punish the mass, was that your idea?”

“We wouldn’t dare. We have failed you, Dean. Please assign us our punishment!”

“Hrm, you know you were wrong? You ask for punishment? What is the point of all that now?” The dean was still discontented.

“Now that we know we are wrong, we can correct our ways!”

“Alright, I will take your words for it now. If I never find out something like this have happened again? You won’t need to teach anyone else!”

Resplendent Apothecary ch 58 - First Time Into the Deep Mountains (3)

“HA HA HA…. More than just a few! Back in the days when grandpa was on the field, him and his master general – two mean and two swords – fought over 100 enemy soldier and killed some of them while the others scurried away…” Gu Xiao started tooting his own horn when it came to telling stories of his past. No only did his stories attracted Gu Ming’s buddies, even the villagers that were helping with the rebuilding of the houses were drawn in by them.

The grandfather was definitely Gu Ming’s newest hero. He had made up his mind that he’d put in a lot of hard work to learn Kungfu from his grandfather and become a hero on the field just like him!

Resplendent Apothecary ch 57 - First Time Into the Deep Mountains (2)

“Have you gone into the mountain again? How many times do I have to tell you to not go in there by yourself? IT’s very dangerous there!” Gu Ming thought she was only in the mountain behind their house, but he still couldn’t help but to nag.

But when he saw the deer at her feet and the back basket full of herbs, he turned pale immediately. He ran toward her like mad and looked her up and down, making sure that she was alright.

“Did you go inside the deep mountain? Don’t you think that was a little too reckless? There were so many beasts in the mountains that even Hunter Zhang didn’t dare wander too far. What am I going to do if anything happened to you?” Gu Ming was so anxious that his eyes turned red. He lifted his hand up and was about to strike his sister. But when he said that pitiful little face, he couldn’t bring himself to do it. Angrily, he balled up his fist and waved it in the air.

TWQQF ch 261 - Fighting Among Themselves; The Gu's Are Coming (12)

School of the Divine Condor!

Inside the Dean’s hall sat four associate deans and eighteen instructors, a total of twenty-three of them.

The dean sat on the master seat. He was already 300 years old, his long and white goatie already reaching to his chest, even his brows were also down to his chin. He was, after all 310 years old, several fold of a normal person’s life span.

His foggy-looking eyes scanned across everybody there. Truth be told, none of these present were young. Even the youngest one there was close to 100, but he was still a youngster in the eyes of the dean nonetheless. The only ones there were close to his age were the four old men that cultivate behind closed doors perennially.

The dean of School of Divine Condor rarely got involved with actual matters concerning the school anymore. Most of the matters have been handled by the four associate deans with the assistance from the eighteen instructors.

This was the second time the dean had summoned everyone for a meeting within the last few months. This was almost unheard of in the past several years; normally nobody even saw the dean for a year or two at a time.

Now he had summoned everyone again. Naturally, the ones present could more or less figure out the purpose of the meeting.

“Associate dean Shen, why don’t you explain the situation to everyone here?” asked the dean nonchalantly.

Associate dean Shen dare not delay a second. He immediately cupped his hands at the dean and started recounting to everyone what had transpired at the Cheng’s.

If anyone from the Cheng’s was there right now, they’d recognize the man as the associate dean who brought his students to provide free labors for the Cheng’s.

He recounted all the events in great details; he neither cast their own as the “good guys” in the stories, nor did he exaggerate anything to make the Cheng’s out as evil people.

Nobody spoke a word after listening to his recounting of the events. As for whether the Cheng’s had gone too far, or that they asked for it themselves, they knew the answer in their minds.

Right now, whether they should go pick fight with the Cheng’s to preserve their face or just swallow their pride and let this one go, that was the question they wanted to consult the dean about.

If they were to go off of their normal set of principles, the reputation of the school was definitely the single most important thing. So theoretically, they’d go an make sure the wrongs have been right; and by that, they mean their face (reputation).

“Associate Dean Shen, thank you for your great work!” The dean started by praising Associate Dean Shen.

Associate Dean Shen was flattered and he quickly replied, “Dean, Cheng Biyuan was once a student of our school. In addition, Ning Xunzong and his lot had gone a bit far in this. The Cheng’s reaction wasn’t entirely unreasonable!”

The dean casted a glance at him. His look did not change much and still looking as indifferent as usual. As he scanned across the others in the room, they immediately felt a burning sensation on their face, as though they had been burned by fire.

“Anyone else has anything else to add?” The dean was as nonchalant as normal but his words gave everyone chills.

“Hrm,” hrmphed the dean when nobody responded. Everybody just felt as though a thunder had hit next to their years, “I have only been gone from running the matters of this school for a few years, little do I know that the students of our school had deteriorated so much. All the students that I have left to you had turned into robbers and bandits. How are you going to face all your predecessors of this school in the future?

“Do you still remember our guiding principles of benevolence, wisdom, propriety, truthfulness, music, loyalty, faith, heaven, earth, morality, and righteousness. Do you still remember their meanings? Why can’t I see a trace of them in our students? Do none of you possess these anymore?”

“Dean, we were wrong!”
