Chapter 22 – Leave Her Alone
The afternoon, home time.
As he left the cla.s.sroom, Xia Ping discovered that all of the surrounding students were pointing and staring at him, as if he was some precious and endangered species. Unbeknownst to him, he had already became famous.
“Quickly, look! That’s the Xia Ping from the rumours.”
“Doesn’t seem like much. How did he get the school’s flower pregnant?”
“You can’t judge a book by their cover. Who knows, he might have used drugs or something.”
“Very possible. This guy really does look like the criminal-type.”
“Sooner or later, he’ll be arrested by the police too. According to the rumours, two other students in his cla.s.s were arrested because they were running naked through the school. They’re spending the next week or so in jail right now.
“Birds of a feather flock together. This guy is definitely not a good bird.”
The surrounding students whispered to each other as they looked Xia Ping over.
“So it’s like that? Because of those s.e.x scandal rumours?” Xia Ping also hadn’t thought that those rumours would spread so fast. In only one day’s time, practically the entire school was aware of it.
With a ding, the System’s reminder went off: “Congratulations Master, at the moment, you’ve earned a total of seven hundred and thirty six Hatred Points.”
What? Seven hundred and thirty six Hatred Points?!
Xia Ping was really speechless. The day before, he had to mock a huge amount of people and go up onto the Soaring Dragon Platform just to earn two to three hundred Hatred Points.
Now, just this s.e.x scandal alone, and he earned more than seven hundred. Was he seriously hated by that many people just for making contact with the school’s flower? This really was too ridiculous.
Still, in a way it was also understandable. If an ordinary person just popped out of nowhere all of a sudden and captured the heart of the school’s flower, especially one that was extremely popular and beautiful, they would pretty much be the object of envy and jealousy.
“Hmm, could it be that I actually don’t have to go around mocking people to get Hatred Points, instead I just have to capture girls?” Xia Ping seriously considered the possibility of this.
“You’re Xia Ping?” a distant voice asked in an imperious tone. Turning around, Xia Ping saw a handsome man of around five eleven with an intimidating aura about him walking over. Behind him were six followers, each one of them tall and big with a thick martial arts vibe surrounding them. None of the surrounding students dared to block their path as they all made way.
“Isn’t that Zhou Taian from cla.s.s one? It’s said that he’s already at the sixth layer of Martial Disciple and ranked in the top three throughout the school. He’s even stronger than Xiong Batian since he practices the Five Mountains Fist.”
“Not only is he a great talent, he’s also filthy rich. In Skywater City, his family owns a five star hotel with a.s.sets over a hundred million. Every time he comes to cla.s.s, it’s always in a luxury car worth several hundreds of thousands. How awesome is that?”
“He’s also very handsome. The hunk of our ninety fifth high school. Who knows how many girls are secretly in love with him? A pity though since he only likes Jiang Yuru and has been wooing her ever since.”
“Now this will be interesting. Isn’t that Xia Ping, Jiang Yuru’s boyfriend in those rumours? Then will they start to fight?”
All of the surrounding students were discussing the matter, their eyes filled with yearning for gossip. It was very obvious from Zhou Taian’s furious appearance that he was here to look for trouble.
“You’re looking for me?” Xia Ping asked, directly meeting Zhou Taian head on face to face.

Zhou Taian’s gaze bored into him. “You should know why I am here. It’s about Jiang Yuru.” His eyes flashed as he looked Xia Ping over, as if he wanted to find out every secret he had. A powerful pressure started to emanate from him.
“Look at the difference in status between you and boss Zhou and yet you still dare talk to him like that?”
“You dare say that boss Zhou isn’t worth s.h.i.t? Then what are you worth?”
“What, you think that just because you defeated a weak hoodlum like Xiong Batian that you’re now invincible?”
“There are many people more capable than you in this world. You mean nothing.”
All of Zhou Taian’s followers furiously glared at Xia Ping as they started cursing him. Zhou Taian was a true top student who ranked in the top three throughout the entire school. As for Xia Ping, who was he to dare compare himself to Zhou Taian? This was practically a joke.
Zhou Taian’s face froze over. “I’ve seen many people who can boast. You’re not the first. Some even say that they’re invincible, but in reality? They have no power at all. You’re representing your cla.s.s in the school’s big martial arts compet.i.tion this time, right? Then you better pray the we don’t meet, otherwise I’ll show you the true difference between a genius and a layman. I am somebody you can never aspire to. Understood?”
He cracked his knuckles, his fearsome aura practically overflowing off of him, as if he was a predator out on the hunt. All of the surrounding students couldn’t help but take a few steps back.
As for Xia Ping, he didn’t say a word. He just watched him, unaffected by his display of strength.
Giving Xia Ping one last malicious glance, Zhou Taian gestured for his underlings to follow as he left.
