Content on the Skills of Beating People

Within three days, give Shen Feixiao a beating. This mission made Qin Kaiyi truly understand what dark clouds looming over someone meant. Could it be that he really had to beat Shen Feixiao up because of Liu LingEr? Although it was said that there' was nothing wrong with following the plot, how could anyone bear to beat such a malnourished child ah?

He was tangled for a long time before Qin Kaiyi gritted his teeth. Still, he had no choice but to accept the punishment of being deducted an entire 5% progress. He considered for a long time, comforting himself on the inside——When Heaven is about to confer a great office on any man, it first exercises his mind with suffering, and his sinews and bones with toil. It exposes his body to hunger, and subjects him to extreme poverty……If right now he didn't subject Shen Feixiao to this pain of the flesh, and it changed the plot, who knew what his future prospects would be? [1]

Once he thought of this, Qin Kaiyi felt much better……

In the following days, Qin Kaiyi was always secretly observing Shen Feixiao, watching the solitary him living in an old and poor little house, getting water and cooking for himself, and planting and watering the plants. Because the place where Shen Feixiao lived was very remote, other than that sable by his side, he didn't even have a single person to talk to. Qin Kaiyi who was watching this, felt something squeezing his heart. It was extremely uncomfortable.

However, Shen Feixiao seemed to not care about his living circumstances. What he should be doing everyday, he still did. He couldn't encounter the slightest bit of discontentment or resentment. Compared to his old life, this was already much better. At least, he had enough to eat, right?

Qin Kaiyi observed Shen Feixiao for a full ten days but didn't find a single chance to intervene until the eleventh day……Liu LingEr suddenly remembered that she had taken in a little shidi and found the time to come look at Shen Feixiao.

Qin Kaiyi thought that his chance finally came, so he pretended to meet coincidentally with Liu LingEr and accompanied her to where Shen Feixiao lived.

"Shen Feixiao." Liu LingEr’s voice was very sweet. She knocked on the door: "Shen Feixiao, are you there?"

"Creak." The door was opened a sliver. Shen Feixiao expressionlessly watched Liu LingEr and Qin Kaiyi who stood on the other side of the door: "Shijie, do you need anything?"

"I'm here to see how your cultivation is going." She didn't know why, but Liu LingEr found Shen Feixiao's expressionless face a little unsightly. She lightly frowned: "That book that I gave you, did you read it?"

"……" Shen Feixiao was silent for a while before he said: "I didn't understand some parts."

"Oh." Liu LingEr asked: "Which parts did you not understand?"

Shen Feixiao wasn't courteous and directly turned back to go into the house, completely not saying anything to  Liu LingEr and Qin Kaiyi who were still outside.

Being treated so coldly by her own shidi, Liu LingEr's face held some embarrassment, awkwardly saying to Qin Kaiyi: "It looks like our shidi is very shy."

"En." Qin Kaiyi declined to comment. He, of course, was very clear that Liu LingEr was definitely not happy.

Once in the house, Shen Feixiao directly grabbed the introductory scripture that was given to him by Liu LingEr. He flipped to a page and used his finger to point at a diagram of a person practicing a technique: "How do you make this posture?"

"……This." As soon as Liu LingEr saw it, she ran into difficulties. To be honest, the book she threw at  Shen Feixiao was the shallowest introductory scripture. She was personally led by hand by Qing Xuzi into the sect. About the stuff written on these kinds of books, she naturally didn't know a lot.

Nevertheless, as soon as Qin Kaiyi saw it, he understood. Although Qin Shi's personality was pretty terrible, there was quite a lot of information stored in his mind about things regarding cultivation. Towards certain questions, he even had special understandings and views. If it wasn't for his explosive temper and always being compared with Shen Feixiao, then he would definitely not lose to him.

Although he understood the meaning of the thing in Shen Feixiao's hands, Qin Kaiyi didn't plan on opening his mouth. Afterall, he was here today to investigate, not to explain things to Shen Feixiao.

Shen Feixiao didn't let down Qin Kaiyi’s expectations. When he saw that Liu LingEr and Qin Kaiyi were both quiet, his lips curled into a mocking smile: "You guys are only at this level."

"You!!" Liu LingEr didn't think that Shen Feixiao would say these kinds of words. She had never been wronged like this. Her eyes directly reddened and she pointed at Shen Feixiao for a long time.

Qin Kaiyi secretly sighed——Damn, he finally waited until this chance. Thus, he walked a step forward  and reprimanded: "Shen Feixiao, is that how you should be talking?"

"……" Shen Feixiao coldly threw a glance at Qin Kaiyi and then without a single word, lowered his head.

……You truly incite rage darling. If this was the real Qin Shi, he definitely would've been angered half to death by you! Qin Kaiyi secretly commented in his heart[2]. However, his expression became more and more angry: "Say those words that you just said, clearly."

"Shixiong?" Liu LingEr didn't expect that her shixiong would be so angry and got scared.

"Impertinent brat, such disrespect for seniors!" Qin Kaiyi deeply inhaled but still decided to go through with it. He went forward and grabbed Shen Feixiao's clothing collar: "Apologize to your shijie."

Could Shen Feixiao apologize? Even if you thought with your toes, you would know that it was impossible. Shen Feixiao not only didn't apologize but also looked at Qin Kaiyi with disdain. That expression seemed to say——You, this kind of idiot still wanted me to apologize to you? Dream on!!

Then, Qin Kaiyi followed the plot……His fist landed on Shen Feixiao's face.

"Shixiong, what are you doing?!!" Girls, of Liu LingEr's age, as soon as they saw the weaker side, they would pity them for a long time. Although Shen Feixiao embarrassed her earlier and made her angry, this situation of Qin Kaiyi getting physical right away was harder for her to accept. If we were to be honest, at the end, Liu LingEr was just a girl that hadn't grown up yet. Granted that she was slightly arrogant and conceited from being spoiled by the elders, her nature was not bad.

"……" Qin Kaiyi felt pain in his balls because after he gave a punch to Shen Feixiao, he didn't hear the sound of that damned system's reminder. It was obvious that the bastard system thought that he didn't beat him up enough……

Ignoring  Liu LingEr who was fussing and yelling at his side, Qin Kaiyi used his foot to ruthlessly kick Shen FeiXiao who was on the floor. While he kicked, he puked blood on inside. F*ck. What couldn't he have transmigrated as? Why did it have to be a villain with neuroticism, causing him to have to beat up an underage kid?

"Shixiong, quickly stop ah!" Liu LingEr quickly held  Qin Kaiyi back: "How could you hit people?"

When Qin Kaiyi heard what Liu LingEr said, he had difficulties that he couldn't say aloud. He took a deep breath and swung Liu LingEr away, continuing to step on Shen Feixiao who already couldn't get up, before he finally heard that evil system's reminder【System reminder: Congratulations on earning 1% of return value. Current return value is 1.5%】……As soon as Qin Kaiyi heard the sound, he immediately stopped. He wanted to help Shen Feixiao up but was afraid of changing the plot, so he could only move away and let Liu LingEr go and help Shen Feixiao up.

"Shixiong, how could you do this?" Liu LingEr looked at  Shen Feixiao who was beaten until he only had a single breath left, and her eyes started to redden: "How could you arbitrarily beat people up. He's still a child."

……F*cking H*ll, I also know that he's a kid! On the inside, Qin Kaiyi was running around screaming his lungs out, but on the surface, he still had a relaxed and indifferent appearance: "He’s just a talentless disciple. Liu LingEr, why are you caring so much?"

"Shixiong, I originally thought you were a kind and good person. Now that I look, it's LingEr who was wrong." Liu LingEr firmly gave a salute: "Since it's like this, it seems that we have the fate of meeting but unfortunately no common ground." [3]

Girl……This was stallion novel not a romance one!! Qin Kaiyi took a deep breath and hastily tried to pull back the collapsing plot: "LingEr, I'm only this angry because I saw you being bullied. You know how much you mean to me. I can't bear to see others treat you badly."——He couldn't have a fall out with Liu LingEr right now because later, there was still a scene of Liu LingEr betraying him for Shen Feixiao!!

"But." Liu LingEr was moved again. She thought that what shixiong had said was also reasonable. If it wasn't for Shen Feixiao treating them badly, Qin Shi wouldn't get that angry either!

"In the future, I'll take care of him. Just consider it as me compensating, okay?" Qin Kaiyi remembered that Qin Shi had said this phrase in the novel——Of course, Qin Shi was only saying this to coax Liu LingEr. Only an idiot would truly think that he could take care of Shen Feixiao.

"Okay." Liu LingEr was precisely this kind of idiot……

"Put him on the bed." Qin Kaiyi said: "Didn't you say a few days ago that you wanted the sable? Let's go. I'll take you to the back mountain to take a look and see if there's any other animal that you can raise."

"Really?" Liu LingEr's eyes brightened but then immediately with some hesitation she asked: "But what about him?"

"……" You still haven't forgotten the patient on the bed? Qin Kaiyi couldn't help but think. When he was writing, he didn't feel it. But now that he actually transmigrated, why did he feel that Liu LingEr had a loose wire??

"I have a sense of proportion." Qin Kaiyi said: "He won't die. Plus, with his personality, grinding will do good to prevent him from causing any trouble for our sect by provoking someone he shouldn't offend."

"Then, okay." In the end, Liu LingEr still agreed: "Once we come back, I'll go get some medicine for shidi."

……If he met this kind of woman, he would personally pinch them to death. Qin Kaiyi wanted to roll his eyes, but for the sake of his image, he didn't say anything. Just before leaving, Qin Kaiyi glanced at Shen Feixiao who was lying on the bed and found that he was already awake, using his pair of black and penetrating eyes to watch Liu LingEr and himself. That gaze seemed very calm, but it made Qin Kaiyi feel a chill……

He accompanied Liu LingEr to walk around the back mountain. Qin Kaiyi casually caught a paridae for Liu LingEr as consolation, and it was better than nothing. Liu LingEr felt a little dissatisfied but didn't say anything. Once they returned, she glanced at Qin Kaiyi: "Then shixiong, I'll go get medicine for shidi?"

You still haven't forgotten this. Qin Kaiyi secretly thought, but he didn't reveal any unusual expression: "It's better if I get it. As a woman, you don't know how to avoid arousing suspicion."

"This……" Liu LingEr looked at Qin Kaiyi with hesitation: "Okay……"

"En. Go back." Qin Kaiyi nodded and went towards the direction of the medicine building.

He grabbed some common medicine to treat injuries. Qin Kaiyi muttered an incantation and rode the clouds to Shen Feixiao's living place. To be honest, he always felt uncomfortable inside. Although it was impossible to avoid following the plot, it was harder to untie the knot in his heart.

Qin Kaiyi walked in front of Shen Feixiao's door. But as if by the guide of the gods or ghosts, Qin Kaiyi who should be knocking at the door was in front of the window, secretly observing  Shen Feixiao who was inside the house……

This one glance directly stimulated Qin Kaiyi. Shen Feixiao who was lying on the bed was harshly biting his wrist, emitting quiet whimpers out of his mouth. It seemed as if he couldn't bear the pain. His eyes were red, but no tears came out of them. Shen Feixiao's eyes were locked on the corner of the room. His stubborn yet weak appearance made Qin Kaiyi's heart feel as though it was being harshly squeezed by something.

It was all because of the good deed that he did ah……Qin Kaiyi felt bitterness in his mouth to the point where he wanted to die. He looked at the medicine in his hands, and an idea suddenly appeared in his mind……Qin Shi as the villain had no way to help Shen Feixiao and let him suffer less pain, but what if he was a passerby who wouldn't change the plot?

One who, other than bringing some warmth to Shen Feixiao, didn't help him open some golden finger and even more so didn't guide him in the path of cultivation. A disposable passerby……

[2] The word "commented" is actually a word called Tucao which is better shown in the picture below.

[3] The type of salute she's mentioning is this one not the army one. The phrase she says is also a common four word idiom is used in cases of unfortunate or regretful partings.

Tn: Qin Kaiyi, I thought you decided not to hit him? I'm sorry to break it to you Qin Kaiyi, but that "disposable passerby" will (un) fortunately change the plot a lot. Lol. I can already see it coming.
