Chapter 14 – Practice Physiognomy and Neutralize the Disaster

The primary school in the village was a large campus with a row of a tiled roofs with five houses combined.
The village was not very big, so there were about a hundred students from Grade one to Grade five and roughly twenty students in each class for a grade.
This was indeed a far cry from being in a school with advanced and well-equipped educational facilities in the city.

The start of the school year was naturally an important event for the children of the village and this year it was especially grand.
One reason was that Professor Zhou had taken up a teaching position at the school, and the other was that Xia Shao, a child from the city, had transferred to the village to attend schooling.

This was certainly a rare event.

Children love pretty things, especially when it came to Xiao Shao who was so cute and fair that could not be compared to the children in the village who often ran around in the field.

By the end of the first lesson, the Third Grade classroom was packed to the max and little Xia Shao was surrounded by a large crowd.

“Shoo shoo shoo! Shift aside, go away!” Liu CuiCui pushed her way through the crowd and stood beside Xia Shao: “What are you all doing? Don’t scare my sister as she’s timid.
You all might scare her into tears, and I won’t forgive you guys!”

She was two years older than Xia Shao and was already in the second semester of her fifth Grade.
Li CuiCui was tall and slim, even slightly taller than any child of her age.
With her spirited nature, she naturally speaks with some authority.

However, it was not a threat to those boys who were now at a playful age.

“CuiCui, what are you saying? As if we are going to bully her and since when are the girls from the city so timid? What’s wrong with so many people looking at her? It’s not like we’re going to eat her.”

The one who spoke was old Uncle Du’s son, Du Ping, who was also in the Fifth Grade and was a little taller than Liu CuiCui.
He was tanned and skinny with bright eyes, just that he was very playful, and was the village’s uncompromising child king.

In her previous life, Du Ping liked to bully Xia Shao but it was just little boys pranking on girls.
Every time he went back home, he had to mess with Xia Shao and made her cry every single time.
It was thanks to Liu CuiCui who always stood up for her and fought with him every time.

As a child, Xia Shao hated Du Ping and always avoided him when she went back home.
At this point, in Xia Shao’s opinion, this was actually a psychological characteristic of boys at this age.
They found all girls to be funny and like to bully them a little bit, but in fact, there was no bad intention.

“Sure, what do you want to play?”

Xia Shao spoke up but it startled Liu CuiCui and Du Ping.
She, she… answered the question? Didn’t she usually keep quiet?

“ShaoZi, don’t be afraid of him, I’ll help you……”

“Sister CuiCui, it’s okay.” Xia Shao smiled as she stood up and asked graciously: “What do you want to play?”

Not expecting her to be so direct in her question, Du Ping was at a loss for words and scratched his head for a long time before deciding: “The things you kids play in the city are not fun! Let’s compete in martial arts, somersault! Can you do it?”

“Martial arts?” Xia Shao chuckled.

Since New Year’s Eve, she had been practising martial arts on the mountain every day for more than a month.
Although she had just learnt, she had been practising authentic internal martial arts.

Even though ShiFu had some problems with his legs, he was still very skilful with his hand’s martial art.
Every day she had to go through a couple of hundred move fights with him and by the time she had finished the training, she was so tired to even get up.
Thus, in terms of martial arts, these hundred or so little kids might not really be a match for her.

Naturally, Xia Shao didn’t want to fight with a child, so she negotiated: “I’m a girl and you’re a boy.
It’s not really proud for you to win against me.
Why don’t you compete with the boys at school and let me see if you’re truly the best.” Du Ping was a straightforward person, of course, he was no match for Auntie Xia Shao’s scheming.
He was instantly goaded into action by the excitement and forgotten his original intention.

“Fine! I’ll show you that I’m the best!” Du Ping waved his hand and all the people rushed out at once.

In the large courtyard outside the classroom, all the boys were pulled out to compete in doing somersaults.

The rules were simple, whoever flipped the most, won the match.

Du Ping was the first to do it, and this boy sure had some skills.
Flipping a total of 58 somersaults until he was so dizzy and tired that he sat down on the floor in sweat.

The boys after him, even those who looked taller and sturdier than him, did not break his record.
There were a hundred or so children in the school, all from the village and were familiar with each other.
Thus, the courtyard was full of shouts and cheering.

As the boys went on one by one, the proud smile on Du Ping’s face became more prevalent, and he glanced at Xia Shao with a look for praises.

Xia Shao only smiled, but she felt that having the privilege to experience such an innocent and carefree childhood life again was so wonderful……

Gradually, when the competition was almost over, Du Ping held the highest record and was indeed the true child-king of the village’s children.

The last one to enter was Pang Dun.

Pang Dun was the son of Zhou Wang’s family, he was the same age as Xia Shao and his name was called Zhou MingXu.
However, even though his name was nice, he weighed nearly a hundred pounds which made him pant and puff when he walked, so how could he even somersault?

He waved his hand timidly: “I, I can’t somersault……”

“Pang Dun! Are you afraid? XiangZi had even flipped twice, if you don’t dare to flip even one, then you’re too much of a coward!” Du Ping had rested enough and jeered as he got up from the ground.

In this era, most of the children in the village were very simple, otherwise with just being a relative of Professor Zhou, Pang Dun could easily avoid it.
Unfortunately, the children didn’t care about such status.
Although Pang Du was timid, he also had his pride.
He moved to the centre of the courtyard despite the timid look he had in his gaze.

“Just to be clear, you guys are not allowed to laugh if I … I can’t flip over…..”

“We won’t laugh, as long as you dare to flip.” Du Ping promised with a righteous look.

“Then, I’ll flip…..” Pang Du stared at the ground and gulped, his eyes glowing timidly and his expression was torn.

All the children around them were shouting and cheering, but in the crowd, Xiao Shao was slightly stunned.


At this moment, in Xia Shao’s eyes of Pang Dun.
His eyes and mouth were slightly drooping, his expression was torn and sad, and his YinTang1 had a slightly greyish hue.
That was a sign that things were not going well and that he was about to meet a disaster.

In this holiday break, apart from practising martial arts on the mountain to nurture her Qi.
Xia Shao also learnt some basic knowledge of face reading from Tang ZongBo.
She had the mind and soul of an adult, and her understanding was naturally much better, so her comprehension and receptiveness surprised even Tang ZongBo.

In terms of physiognomy, a person’s face was not always the same and there were always some changes from time to time.
A powerful face reader could use these subtleties to determine a person’s fortune in the near future and didn’t even need divination.

In fact, this makes sense from a scientific point of view.
For example, at this moment, Pang Dun had a torn and sorrowful expression, which means that he was worried and extremely nervous.
The probability of a person having an accident was way higher than usual when he was under a tense mental state and stress.
Only this was from the judgement based on psychological behavioural and logics, whereas physiognomy was better at looking at the subtleties of a person’s features.
It was actually the same thing, only the latter seems a little more mysterious.

However, not everyone could see the “YinTang Fa Hei2”, only those who could communicate with the energy of heaven and earth could see it.
Therefore, many swindlers often bluff about the YinTang Fa He, which was mostly untrue.
Those very few people who could really tell the colour, were exceptionally a master.

Xia Shao had the Divine Eyes, so she could see the greyish and inauspicious aura and immediately felt something bad was about to happen.
However, it was too late for her to use her Divine Eyes and foresee what would happen afterwards.

Right now she saw Pang Dun slapped his hands, got into a ready position, gritted his teeth and tried flipping over!

After all, he was so fat that he could barely walk without panting, and let alone somersaulting? As soon as he slapped his hands on the ground and tried flipping his body over, his arms suddenly bent and gave way!

Pang Dun was originally head down, so with his arms bent, his head was about to crash onto the ground! With his weight, if he crashed on the ground with his head first, he might bleed from the scratches, but in the worse case, he might even break his neck and spine!

In the nick of time, a figure suddenly bursts out of the crowd.

Xia Shao grabbed Pang Dun by his collar and yanked him up.
Following the flow of his flipping motion, Xia Shao spun him around in place.
Pang Dun was dizzy and before he could react, he had already landed firmly on the ground.

The children in the courtyard were all stunned by the suddenness of the incident.
When they reacted, they all stared at Xia Shao.

No one was more amazed than Liu CuiCui and Du Ping, whose mouths were opened wide enough to stuff in an egg.

Liu CuiCui stared at Xia Shao from top to bottom in amazement.
Looking at her fair and lovely appearance, and then at the fat Pang Dun who was sitting on the floor, puffing and panting while dazing off in shock.
Liu CuiCui shook her head in disbelief.

This was Pang Dun ah! She couldn’t even lift him, but ShaoZi managed to lift him with one hand by his collar and even spun him around in a circle?

Du Ping was even more depressed, was this still that little girl from the city that he had bullied so much previously, and often cry until Liu CuiCui went to find him for a fight? How was it possible that she looked even stronger than him?

It’s not fun! Unfair!

At this point, the children in the courtyard were abuzz, cheering and crowding around, looking at Xia Shao in wonder.

The little girl, Xia Shao, who had transferred from the city was once again surrounded by lots of spectators.

Xia Shao was awkward that on the first day of school, she had earned herself the title of Hercules.
