Get To Know Your Ex-Girlfriend - Chapter 17
Hunting Legally (Arc 1)
The Escape 17
It had been a very nerve-wracking scene, everyone was fascinated by the commotion, but their expressions were somewhat apathetic.
A class that was clearly full yesterday had now lost a good half of it.
There was also a section of those who were sitting in their seats with resentful eyes.
“Don’t think I dare to do anything to you!”
After creating this humiliation, Zou Yun Fei looked at the other students sitting down and stood up with clenched teeth.
It was so humiliating, Zou Yun Fei didn’t think he would be so humiliated by a girl.
Xin Lan’s condescending and contemptuous eyes, like he was something dirty and filthy.
She was afraid that she hadn’t forgotten who it was that had to be him in the first place, with a knee-jerk posture.
“Yun Fei, don’t be impulsive.”
Zhou Zhou patted him, and Zou Yun Fei slapped his hand away.
“The three of us are still afraid of a woman like her?”
“But yesterday – did you forget that she’s not normal now? And it’s not hunting time yet.”
Of course Zou Yun Fei knew it wasn’t hunting time, and on that basis he dared to get up and shout.
Xin Lan strode over, and Zou Yun Fei’s body involuntarily stiffened.
Xin Lan’s attitude was direct, looking down on you meant that she looked down on you.
“Give me my book.”
Xin Lan stretched out her hand and Zhou Zhou hurriedly picked up her book and handed it to her.
Everyone looked at it and thought it was strange, but no one had the heart to discuss this, they were all about to die, what did they care about other people’s conflicts, they were all enemies.
Just because it was not hunting time yet, everybody could only press down their panic and anxiety.
Xin Lan took the book, and remembering that this man had just scolded Shen Shuiyan, she raised her hand and hit Zou Yun Fei in the face with the book, and turned around to go back.
Earlier in the day, Xin Lan had found out that it was possible to fight during non-hunting periods, except that there might be a limit.
Because that night, Tao Ling had tried to stab her with a knife, but she had snatched the knife with her backhand and chipped a piece of flesh off her hand after twisting the bone.
It was already the end of the hunt, but she was not punished in any way.
Looking back at the announcement of the rules between now and then, the rules say that ‘those who resort to means outside the hunt will be wiped out’.
This particular phrase, namely ‘to resort to means’, is intriguing.
When Xin Lan returned, Shen Shuiyan had a somewhat worried expression, while Xu Deng was dumbfounded.
“Will it be okay to do it—?”
“It’s okay, do you remember what the rules said?”
Xin Lan leaned down and said with a low smile in Shen Shuiyan’s ear.
Shen Shuiyan’s head went blank for a split second as Xin Lan’s breathing was breathed into her ear, and that low laugh made her heart throb a little.
The moisture of her breath made half of her body tingle for a moment, her fingers digging into her palm to calm the sensation down.
She thought she might be too close for her liking, and her mind began to recall what the rules had said.
She raised an eyebrow in a daze and locked eyes with Xin Lan, her eyes conveying a mutual understanding of what they meant.
“Boss, this is too cool for a public beating in the face, isn’t it? Aren’t you afraid he’ll retaliate?”
Xu Deng was taken aback by Xin Lan’s action, that was a boy after all, would it be bad to piss him off come hunting time?
“Whose work do you think that wound on his body is?”
Xu Deng glanced at the wretched Zou Yun Fei and gave a thumbs up to Xin Lan.
Cool, too cool.
Xu Deng pushed the frames of her own glasses and went out hopefully.
Zou Yun Fei gritted his teeth, he would make sure this person would look good!
“Why are you making loud noises during class time?”
The npc Teacher stepped in from outside and frowned at the standing Zou Yun Fei.
Zou Yun Fei did not dare to provoke the npc, contorted his face to hold back his anger and sat down.
It’s true that you can’t talk during class, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pass notes.
Shen Shuiyan wrote what she wanted to say in her book and looked at the blackboard and pushed the book over.
Shen Shuiyan: There must be other clues on them, when do you plan to strike?
Xin Lan: Tonight, and beating them isn’t about the clues.
Shen Shuiyan: Then why?
Xin Lan couldn’t say it was because Zou Yun Fei had scolded her, so she put pen to paper and replied with two words.
Xin Lan: Old grudges.
Shen Shuiyan thought for a moment that Xin Lan had no more feelings for Zou Yunfei, that was for sure.
The only thing is that Zou Yun Fei’s look of defiance is definitely not willing.
If Xin Lan is trying to take revenge, she should break his heart so that she can pay back the resentment she had at the beginning.
But —— things have been like this, it is estimated that Zou Yun Fei has been beaten out of the shadows, this character of Xin Lan also does not seem to be able to be false and submissive.
Shen Shuiyan arched her lips and came up with an idea.
She wrote down another paragraph in her notebook and put it in front of Xin Lan.
Shen Shuiyan: Do you know about Infernal Affairs?
Xin Lan: Mm-hmm?
Shen Shuiyan: I’ll help you as a spy.
Xin Lan gave a surprised look at Shen Shuiyan, who raised her eyebrows at her, that smile was not like the old one, and it breathed a sense of bubbling badness.
Xin Lan: No need to bother you like this.
Shen Shuiyan: It’s no trouble at all. You want to get back at him, right?
Xin Lan: Yes.
Zero Nine was relieved as hell in the system space, thankfully the host hadn’t forgotten what their mission really was.
It didn’t matter at all whether they got out or not, what was important was to make the scum regret it.
The host will usually go off to make the scum turn around and fall in love all over again, thinking the woman tastes damn sweet, slapping the face like crazy, maybe come out with someone else to irritate the scum, and then at the end of the day choose someone else or no one at all, and kick the scum out, and when they do, drop a deep voice of pain, preferably dropping a couple of tears and saying something like ‘there’s no more potential for us ‘, so that the scumbag boyfriend was heartbroken to no end.
However, Xin Lan did not follow the script, coming up and just doing what she wanted to do, now the scum did not say that he liked her, it would be good if he did not shiver when he saw her near, and probably wanted to cut Xin Lan to pieces in his heart, this is how to make the scum hurt, at most it is just a pain in the body.
But Zero Nine can not persuade ah, Zero Nine also simply dare not persuade.
Unlike all the other hosts in the Face Slapping Department, Xin Lan didn’t seem to fit in as a protagonist because she didn’t give a damn about getting scum to like her.
In fact not only did she disdain it, Xin Lan seemed to think it was a waste of life to even say one more word to the scum, except in the middle of a slap in the face.
To ask Xin Lan to seduce men to fall in love with her and then play them around, Zero Nine felt that it was estimated that even if she, the system, were to retire, this scene would not even be possible.
What Xin Lan is likely to do is to steal the scum’s business and take the path that the scum took, leaving the scum with no way out.
This is the business type face-slapping, but the ‘ex-girlfriend line’ she chose is the emotional line of face-slapping ah hey!
Shen Shuiyan saw a word of her affirmation and twirled the pen between her fingers.
She had overheard them talking about Xin Lan when she was in Zou Yun Fei’s group, but that attitude was simply one of looking down on them. Little Tiger was strong, but she didn’t know that against people like that, crushing them in force would humiliate them, but in her heart she wouldn’t admit that she was wrong.
If Little Tiger won’t do it, she’ll do it.
If Xin Lan really pulls her face down and goes by herself, then it’s not like her.
Shen Shuiyan: It’s no trouble, it’s a small thing, just cooperate with me.
Xin Lan saw it, but did not reply to it.
By all accounts, this is her mission alone, and Shen Shuiyan has no relationship with her, she can use Shen Shuiyan as her teammate to reach her purpose, but, Shen Shuiyan helping her with this kind of behavior —— was not reluctant, how can she say it, it was wonderful.
If she was still a villain —— stop, she could no longer think that way.
She was no longer a villain, and she would always be forgetting.
What Shen Shuiyan thought, she actually almost understood in her heart.
What Zero Nine said, she understood all of it as well.
The rationale is understood, it’s just that Xin Lan really doesn’t want to force herself to act and eat garbage against such a scum of a man character.
Maybe that’s a bit crude, but she feels that in this kind of situation, if you can beat someone up first to get out of it, why do you have to put yourself on the line, especially if the other person doesn’t treat you well?
The first thing to say is that she will not be nice, just this kind of replica of the situation, Zou Yun Fei and that attitude, even if she speaks nicely, the other party must have also give face to the shame.
If you have a person locked up first and have a real person attack him, a hundred out of a hundred straight men will go crazy, and then keep applying psychological pressure, anyway, he is still just a student, not a trained person, it is expected that he will soon have a psychological breakdown, maybe even a disorder is also uncertain, by then he will definitely cry and beg for mercy.
By then, not to mention the pain or lack of it, he probably wouldn’t even be able to think.
Xin Lan reviewed her plan and sighed in her heart, what a good plan, just a bit too perverse.
It was obviously very un-protagonist.
Shen Shuiyan glanced at Xin Lan every now and then to see when she would give her the letter of the note back.
Xin Lan feigned looking at the blackboard, her heart didn’t want to condemn Shen Shuiyan to face those few people’s.
Zero Nine is getting anxious, such a good helper here, how can the host not say yes.
Zero Nine: host agree ah, such a good opportunity it, the school bully is absolutely no problem
Xin Lan: But I don’t want to bother her.
Zero Nine: It’s just a character in a mission world, you won’t see her when you get out.
However, if you’re looking for a good opportunity, of course you’ll take it, but she just doesn’t want to aggravate Shen Sheiyan either.
This sentiment was like when she didn’t tell Shen Shuiyan last night that there was a corpse in the wardrobe, fearing that she would be uncomfortable.
There was no need to put Shen Shuiyan through the grievance when she could have just done it.
It was simply that, but how could she say such a thing?
It was too embarrassing.
By the time this class ended, Shen Shuiyan did not wait for Xin Lan to get back to her.
“Don’t you want to?” Shen Shuiyan asked, did Xin Lan want to come by herself, or did she not want other Goddesses near Zou Yun Fei?
The former Shen Shuiyan could accept, the latter she felt less comfortable thinking about.
“Not unwilling, Zou Yun Fei is annoying, just a scum, and the ones around him are not good either, don’t want you to go play some infernal commission yourself.”
Shen Shuiyan understood and took hold of Xin Lan’s hand.
That hand was warm even in winter, and the skin on it was smooth and soft, very comfortable to hold.
Little Tiger was scared of troubling her ah, to say the least, Little Tiger’s sense of individualism was really strong, pushing her to the back when it came to fighting, even when she was in danger.
“How can you feel aggrieved about something like taking it out for you.”
