Chapter 41: The school bully has been particularly ‘good’ recently.

After the applause, the math class finally started.
Although it had been nearly a week since Qin Qing moved to the back table, it was the first time that she and Wen Yufeng were sitting behind the same desk for formal classes.
After observing more than half of the class, Wen Yufeng came to the conclusion that his little classmate was excellent, probably really because of her IQ.
At least in math class, half the time seemed to be used by Qin Qing to stare blankly.
In class, Shen Liang gave the students a halftime interval to ease the previous stress. There was no longer silence in the classroom and Wen Yufeng turned himself to Qin Qing’s direction.
The boy’s voice was low, with a faint smile.
Why didn’t you “listen?”
Qin Qing turned her little face in a daze. She didn’t understand how she worked so stealthily. How could she be discovered by Wen Yufeng?
WenYufeng seems to see that she did not understand, and his smile deepened .”Although you’ve been looking ahead, your eyes are empty.”
—— She was like a rabbit in a trap waiting for him to pounce.
……That’s how it was discovered.
Qin Qing pouted and whispered slowly:
“Teacher Shen speaks…too slow.”
She thought for a moment. “I’d like to concentrate too, but I know what he’s going to think and what he’s going to say, so if he speaks slowly, I’m going to be distracted.”
Looking at the girl’s casual expression, Wen Yufeng’s adam apple rolled down.
After a while, he looked away and smiled bitterly.
How could there be such an existence that would challenge his self-control he had been so proud of at every moment?
“……Why are you laughing?”
Qin Qing did not understand. Her beautiful little face was slightly tense, expression also a little serious.
“You haven’t done any of the papers that Teacher Shen was talking about. You can’t be distracted with me.”
“I can’t listen to what he says.”
“……” She frowned. “That won’t do. It’s important to listen.”
“It’s okay.” The boy turned his face to Qin Qing, and chuckled softly..
After two seconds, he slowly turned his face back, his eyes narrowed. “I still have you…little teacher.”
Qin Qing blinked slowly.
“Little Teacher, Little Student.”……When the man calls her, he seems to like to add the adjective “little”.
“……I am not that small.” Qin Qing suddenly spoke.
Without waiting for Wen Yufeng to continue teasing her, she continued:
“I’ll grow up soon…It won’t take long.”
With that, the girl raised her eyes, as if she had begun to listen attentively to Shen Liang’s lecture.
Only from the side angle, one could see the outline of the beautiful small ears slowly growing red.
Because of the girl’s words, Wen Yufeng froze in his seat. After a good while, he slowly dropped his eyes.
At the same time, his lips could not help but curl up.
The scene in front of him was the one he had experienced yesterday, and it was a little blurry from being paralyzed by alcohol.
“Grow up quickly……”
At that time, he heard himself say the words that were hidden in his heart but he could not control or stop it.
When he said the last word, he couldn’t help thinking to himself——
He would probably scare his little girl, right?
Even if she was scared…I beg you not to run.
Sorry, because I don’t want that.
However, with such depressed thoughts, the second before his consciousness fell into darkness, he had clearly heard that soft voice reply——
It was as if that voice was heard again. Wen Yufeng slowly raised his eyes, his eyes unblinkingly tracing the girl’s pretty face from his perspective.
His thin lips lifted slightly.
……As you promised.
I will always remember.
After class, Teacher Shen came over to give his math representative his math homework for the evening.
After the arrangements were made, Shen Liang’s smiling gaze stopped on the boy who had been quietly holding his arms against the back wall of the classroom.
“Aren’t you going out to play basketball today?”
Wen Yufeng raised his eyes and a faint smile appeared on his handsome face.
“I’m tired in spring and autumn, so I can’t play. It is better to study hard. Thank you for your concern, Teacher Shen.”
Shen Liang sized him up. “Alright, I’ll see how you perform in the next monthly exam.”
Shen Liang had just left when a classmate who seemed to be hesitating for a while walked over.
When he was still 20 centimeters away from the desk, School Bully Wen, who was sitting outside, suddenly raised his eyes.
His gaze was as cold as a blade.
“Is something the matter?”
The classmate almost shivered from fright.
Qin Qing, who had just memorized Shen Liang’s math homework, heard the commotion. She raised her head and looked at this and then that, then she frowned.
“Listen Yu Feng,” the girl said softly. “Don’t bully your classmates.”
Wen Yufeng turned his gaze away. Before he could say anything, the student beside him was so frightened that he hurriedly answered——
“No, no, my, my…Qin Qing, this was given to you, this is from Lin Wentao from Class 7…It’s for you.”
As the student spoke, he quickly leaned over and placed the folded piece of paper on Qin Qing’s side. Then, he ran away without looking back.
Qin Qing didn’t bother about the previous problems and reached out to take the paper out of curiosity..
After unfolding it, she saw that the handwriting on it was neatly written on half a page.
Wen Yufeng didn’t pay much attention to it at first, but after a few seconds, he saw Qin Qing’s eyes gradually becoming serious. He narrowed his eyes slightly.
The name sounded a little familiar. It seems to be a boy?
According to what the person said earlier, it was from class 7 next door…Since he was in year two, he probably didn’t know this little classmate before.
In other words…Was he the one she met recently?
At the thought of this, even the school bully’s smile wasn’t quite right.
At this moment, Li Xiang and Zhao Zirui, who had come to the classroom unhurriedly, happened to see that their Brother Yu’s body was emitting a low pressure warning people to “not get close”. He crossed his arms and unblinkingly stared at the white paper in the girl’s hand.
It looked like there was a sign next to the desk that said “there’s a dog inside “.
Li Xiang scratched his head with a strange expression.
—— Hadn’t seen him for a few days, so why did their Brother Yu act like he was about to start a fight?
Even though he had been severely criticized last time, Li Xiang couldn’t help but shamelessly approach him. “Brother Yu, what are you looking at?”
Just now, he had heard the footsteps of these two people. Wen Yufeng was not in a hurry to turn around and he calmly glanced at Qin Qing.
—— The little girl acted as if she hadn’t heard him and didn’t even look at him. She was still focused on the paper in her hand.
The smile on Wen Yufeng’s face was completely wiped off. He turned back expressionlessly.
“I saw someone pass her a note.”
Li Xiang was taken aback and blurted out, “She received a threat letter so quickly?”
The boy was stunned for a second, then slowly narrowed his eyes and turned around.
“What do you mean?”
When Li Xiang saw Wen Yufeng’s reaction, he knew that his guess was wrong. There was another reason why their Brother Yu’s expression was not good. However, now that he had spoken, it was impossible for him to take it back.
He could only glance at Qin Qing, who was focused, and was about to continue.
Before Li Xiang could speak, Wen Yufeng suddenly interrupted him. At the same time, he frowned and stood up.
“Let’s talk outside.”
Although Li Xiang was confused, he obediently followed him out.
When they reached the corridor, the students in the corridor instinctively fell silent when they saw the handsome and stern face of the leader. The effect was comparable to Sun Xing, the dean.
Wen Yufeng didn’t mind and went straight to the window.
Then he turned around and leaned against the window sill, raising his eyebrows.
“Tell me, what happened?”
Li Xiang was extremely innocent. “No…I just casually guessed ……”
“Just casually guessed a threat letter?”
Wen Yufeng’s eyes turned cold.
Li Xiang sighed and could only honestly explain, “Brother Yu…You may not feel much about yourself, but there are a lot of girls who like you in school…Qin Qing sits at a table with you, and there were some gossip in the school during military training…I’m used to school gossip since I was a kid. That’s why I thought someone had sent a threatening letter to our new classmate.”
At this point, Li Xiang paused for a moment before he inexplicably continued. “Actually, there were people who sent threatening letters to School Belle Ling when she was rumored to be your girlfriend at school. I heard that it was bloody.”
Hearing this, the space between Wen Yufeng’s brows almost twisted into a knot.
It wasn’t because of anything else. It was just that when he recalled that Qin Qing had been at his house not long ago, she had been scared to such an extent just because his uncle’s way of leaving was a little different. Obviously, she wasn’t that bold.
If she really received such a bloody letter, who knew what kind of fright she would get.
The boy’s expression turned even colder.
He looked at Li Xiang. “Do you know who might have done it?”
Li Xiang honestly shook his head.
Wen Yufeng clenched his fist, but in the end, he suppressed his anger though his eyes remained cold.
“Keep an eye on it for the next few days.”
Li Xiang understood and nodded. “Don’t worry, Brother Yu.”
At noon that day, Qin Qing still arrived at the school early. She took the hygiene tools from the classroom and went to the class’s hygiene area with the girl on duty.
The sanitary area of Senior 2 Class 6 was in the southeast corner of the school. It was a separate cement floor.
The depression was about two meters from the school ground, and it followed the ground down a step.
Under the stairs was the sanitary area of senior 2 Class 6.
There weren’t many students here and there wasn’t much trash. At most, it was a leaf that had been blown off by the wind in early autumn.
It took Qin Qing and her classmate about ten minutes to clean up the sanitary area.
After the two of them met up, they simply checked and prepared to leave.
However, before they could take a few steps, Qin Qing saw three girls walking down the stairs.
The three of them looked very familiar. They were the three girls who had blocked her way that day.
Qin Qing’s heart skipped a beat as she frowned slightly.
Perhaps the three girls came with ill intentions. The girl who was on duty with Qin Qing also paused her steps and turned to look at Qin Qing in confusion.
“I heard that you were cleaning here this morning, I didn’t expect it to be true.”
The leading girl giggled, but there was no kindness in her eyes.
She gestured to the two people beside her.
The three of them smiled and walked towards Qin Qing, walking directly into the hygiene area.
At first, Qin Qing was confused. After she saw the black bags in their hands, something flashed in her mind.
Following that, her expression changed and she turned to run over to stop them.
It was already too late.
The three bags of trash were dumped directly into the sanitary area by the three girls. In the end, the three of them threw the bags away and clapped their hands as they sneered at Qin Qing.
“You, how could you do this?”
The girl on duty with Qin Qing was so angry that her face turned red.
The three of them looked at Qin Qing the entire time. The leader had a smug look on her face.
“I already warned you a long time ago but you wouldn’t listen. If that’s the case, then I’m afraid you’ll have to suffer a bit more, and it’s even hurting your classmate——I feel sorry for you.”
Qin Qing’s fingers were pale, but her delicate face was even more expressionless.
The raging anger burned up in her heart, making her eyes even colder.
Just as she was about to open her mouth, one of the three girls across from her suddenly turned pale and looked up at the high place behind her.
The five people in the hygiene area looked over together.
It was early autumn and the sun was shining. The boy in the black hoodie and black pants rolled up his sleeves. He was squatting on the stone platform on the top floor of the stairs with his long legs.
Beyond his toes was a two-meter tall stone platform.
The boy rested his right arm wrapped with bandages on his knee. His black hair looked soft under the sunlight. With his slightly narrowed eyes, for some reason, Qin Qing thought of a tiger yawning lazily in the bushes.
She was amused by this thought of hers, causing the shadows in her heart to fade, and the corners of her lips to curl up slightly.
However, the others were not in such a good mood.
Especially the three girls behind them. If it weren’t for the only path being the stairs and a school bully squatting there, they would probably have run away in fright.
And at this moment, even if they didn’t escape, the three people’s expressions and eyes were clearly a little disenchanted.
The boy raised his left hand and gently rubbed the scattered hair on his forehead. His thin lips curled into a smile and his pitch-black eyes shone with a coldness.
“Why don’t you continue?”
The three girls didn’t dare to speak. They looked at each other with trembling eyes and were at a loss.
Wen Yufeng’s thin lips curled slightly. His left hand supported the ground beside him and he was about to jump off the high platform.
A soft voice suddenly called out to him, carrying a trace of annoyance that was not hard to notice.
Wen Yufeng, who had stopped abruptly, innocently looked up at the girl below.
Qin Qing pointed at his right hand.
“Do you still want to go and get stitches?”
Although the girl’s voice was soft, her tone and slightly serious expression were not to be refuted.
Wen Yufeng looked at the bandage on his right hand and raised his eyebrows, but he did not say anything.
He stood up, obediently walked to the side and walked down the steps.
At the last step, he stood beside the girl.
With a height difference of more than 20 centimeters, the boy turned his face to suppress his gaze.
“Is that alright?”
His thin lips rose slightly——
