Chapter 17: School Bullying

The boy striding toward her was full of anger, frightening Wen Yantong.
She tried to run away on her crutches but was grabbed by the back collar.
“Little cripple, you think you and your broken leg can escape?”

“Hey, hey—!” Wen Yantong struggled a few times.
“What are you doing?! What do you want to do?!”

Jiang Yan slammed her into the tree and said, “Stop resisting! If you squirm again, I'll ruin your other leg!”pure tl .

Fortunately, because she was relatively close to the tree and was wearing thick clothes, it didn't hurt much, but her heart was in a panic.
“This is the Academy! The emperor had stated that students in the Academy are not allowed to fight.

Although it sounded nice, this imperial decree was just a reason used to excuse the fight between princes and nobles.
This rule was not applied to commoners.

Jiang Yan sneered.
“Now that you’ve gotten off the Mu Residence's carriage, you’ve grown another layer of skin…
So what? Are you going to report me?”

“Young Master Jiang, don't listen to his nonsense! He even beat me this morning!” Wu Yutian then ran forward, pointed at Wen Yantong, and said loudly, “He climbed up Chi Jingxi and other talents to act so presumptuously!”

Wen Yantong figured out what was going on when she saw him.
He was the villain behind the scenes! She gritted her teeth.
“When did I climb up the Little Marquis?”

“It doesn’t matter even if you don't admit it! Many people saw you get off the Mu Residence's carriage that day.” Wu Yutian continued.
“Let me ask you.
Was Chi Jingxi on the carriage?”translate(d) by puretl .

Just as Wen Yantong was about to sneer, Jiang Yan suddenly pinched her neck, pressing his cold hand against her slender neck.

Wen Yantong’s readied retort was swallowed back.
She was shaken by the coolness on her neck, and she instinctively shrank her neck.
Seeing all the people brought by this Young Master Jiang in front of her, she knew that she was going to be bullied in the school.
Thus, she shrank her neck instinctively.
She then forced herself to calm down. 


“Liar!” Wu Yutian shouted angrily, “Young Master Jiang, don't believe him.
He's lying! That day, the trio took the Mu Residence's carriage to Cuixiang Building.
Chi Jingxi kicked Zhao Family’s son in the chest at the door.
He had broken his ribs, so Zhao gongzi has been lying on the bed for a while now!”

Wen Yantong was horrified.
She didn’t expect Wu Yutian to know about this.
But on second thought, it was not surprising.
Chi Jingxi's every movement was naturally watched by thousands of pairs of eyes.

“No means no.
The carriage was empty that day.
Young Master Mu kindly gave me a ride when he saw that I was walking in the cold wind.” Wen Yantong stubbornly insisted.
“If you don't believe it, why don't you come ask a servant of the Mu’s?”

Naturally, it was impossible for them to go to the Mu's Residence to find a servant and inquire about what happened that day.
So no one could really confirm if the three nobles shared the carriage with her that day.
As long as she didn't admit it, no one could confirm it.

Jiang Yan squinted gloomily, looked at her for a moment, and said, “You used to be so scared of me, wanting to pee your pants whenever you see me, but now it's different.”

Wen Yantong was speechless.
She can’t say that it’s because the small cannon fodder of the past no longer existed, right?

Her hesitation to speak gave Wu Yutian another chance to provoke Jiang Yan.
“Young Master Jiang, don't you know? When he sees Chi Jingxi, he would be so frightened that he would try to find a hole in the ground to burrow in.
Now that he doesn't take you seriously, naturally he won't be afraid of you.”translate(d) by puretl .

Wen Yantong wanted to guffaw out of anger.
This Wu Yutian was truly a lunatic.
If it wasn't for her neck being pinched, she would definitely have killed that b*tch with her crutches!

Jiang Yan was obviously a simple-minded person who was easily provoked.
Thus, he became furious.
He quickly remembered that Wen Yantong still had a relationship with Fu Residence’s Third Young Lady, so he released his hand and said to his lackies, “Hold him up!”

The two people at the front stepped forward, holding Wen Yantong's arms on both sides.
Wen Yantong's crutches fell to the ground.

She twisted her arms and struggled.
“What are you doing?! Let me go!”

Jiang Yan took a few steps forward, took the bow and arrow from someone else's hand, and readied an arrow.
He smiled coldly at Wen Yantong.
“Now your identity is different.
Since you have become the Fu Residence’s Third Young Lady's benefactor, I dare not provoke you.”

What nonsense… Wen Yantong thought.
If he didn’t dare to provoke her, why ask others to restrain her? And why was he holding a bow and arrow?

She panicked.
“What do you want?”

“Don't panic.
This isn’t our first time playing.” Jiang Yan pulled the bowstring, raised his hand to meet Wen Yantong, and replied, “If my arrow hits your hat, then I'll let you go.
If I miss…”

what would happen?” Wen Yantong didn't even notice the tremor in her voice and stared at the arrow pointed at her.

“Wait for the second arrow.” Jiang Yan laughed.

Wu Yutian also smiled smugly, stood beside him, and said, “Young Master Jiang is too close… according to your archery skills, even if you take fifty steps back, you can still hit the mark.”

Jiang Yan nodded.
“What you said makes some sense.” So he took a dozen steps back.translate(d) by puretl .

Wen Yantong looked at the distance and was instantly filled with fear.
What if this person misses, and the arrow goes through her forehead? Would she still live after that?

For these noble sons, killing civilians did not incur any crimes.
With their high ranking family background, just a random bribe would wash all grievances.

When Wen Yantong thought of this, she struggled desperately and pushed the person beside her.
She tried her best to throw away the other person and escape without her crutches.

It was just that her injury was still in the process of healing, so the pain was piercing as soon as she exerted force on her injured leg.
Under the double pressure of pain and fear, Wen Yantong fell to the ground before she took two steps.

The person who she pushed off hurriedly chased after her and held her back.

“Useless waste.
Can’t even hold a lame person!” Jiang Yan scolded and reloaded the bow and arrow.pure tl .

After that, the two of them held Wen Yantong firmly.
No matter how much she struggled, they wouldn’t move.
She cried out, “Can the nobles just randomly squander the lives of commoners? You dare ignore the imperial decree?!”

Jiang Yan snorted.
“Imperial decree? Even if the Son of Heaven arrives now, I will still shoot this arrow! Stop squirming, or else you can't blame me for shooting elsewhere.” Jiang Yan had already started to aim, and he was still saying innocent words.

Wen Yantong was frightened as she looked at the arrow pointing directly at her head.
There was still a trace of calm in the panic, thinking that after the arrow was released, she would just squat down and save herself!

Just as Jiang Xun released the arrow, another arrow suddenly flew from the side and hit Jiang Xun's bow and arrow, nailing his left thumb into the bow!

He only heard the short whistling of the wind and felt a sudden pain in his left hand.

The arrow stuck on the bow was deep red with a snow-white tail feather, and there was a circle of gold threads around the very end.
Jiang Yan's angry expression turned pale in an instant; he was frightened stiff.

Everyone in Songhai Academy knew that the gold thread inlaid at the end was the unique feather arrow of the Little Marquis!pure tl .

Everyone was stunned, unable to respond to the sudden change.

Wen Yantong's heart was beating so fast that she couldn't help panting.
She looked in the direction of the arrow and saw a few people standing not far away.
Like the previous few times, her eyes were locked on only one person.

It was the handsome Chi Jingxi.
As always, there was a bit of arrogance between his brows.
He mockingly chuckled.
His beautiful eyes were full of frost as he looked at Jiang Yan contemptuously.

Holding the luxurious mahogany bow in his left hand, it was clear he was the one who shot the arrow.

Before anyone could speak first, someone suddenly ran up and punched Jiang Yan hard in the face!
