“Anytime you’re ready!” Zhang Shaofeng was anything but confident but since Yun Jian had called it a challenge for him, he was never going to chicken out like a coward.
“Hmph!” Zhang Jian harrumphed and turned away.
Soon, the class went back to its peace. The students seemed to have quieted down from the commotion earlier but while it looked like that, not one of them was actually calm in their heart and soul.
Zhang Shaofeng and Zhang Jian were dueling again after one semester!
If Zhang Shaofeng was still the Zhang Shaofeng before, everyone in the class would assume that he would not be able to defeat Zhang Jian in a heartbeat. After all, he was thoroughly defenseless against Zhang Jian in the fight half a year ago; there was no point of comparison between them. Zhang Jian was simply much stronger and more powerful than Zhang Shaofeng.
In spite of it, things were different now. Zhang Shaofeng’s master was Team Monarch’s Slashing God and the guys had been learning from Yun Jian for half a year.
Who was Yun Jian? She was Slashing God, the legend said to be divinely skilled and capable!
Hence, the class was incredibly curious.
Would Zhang Shaofeng improve, even if a little, after learning from Yun Jian for so long? Or that Yun Jian was so skilled that she had elevated Zhang Shaofeng’s ability to a new height? Perhaps Zhang Shaofeng’s skill was truly better than Zhang Jian’s now?
These were questions burning in the mind of the whole class as they eagerly waited to find out the answer.
When the first period was dismissed, it was expected that the students crowded Zhang Jian and thronged to the back of the school. Before the guy left, he turned back to glance at Zhang Shaofeng and told him, “See you at the back of the school in two minutes! Don’t run away if you’re a man!”
The break between periods in school was only 10 minutes while the back of their school was not exactly far from their classroom.
Zhang Jian left with a group of cheering classmates for the back of the school right after that.
“Jianjian...Zhang Jian is all brawn and muscle. I’m worried that Zhang Shaofeng...” Chen Xinyi had witnessed how the latter got crushed to the floor back then and the picture remained vivid in her mind, so she spoke timidly to Yun Jian.
Before she finished, however, Yun Jian had cut her off. “What’s there to worry about? Having nothing but brute force still makes him trash! Trust me, if Zhang Shaofeng lost to Zhang Jian today, you guys pick any hotel or restaurant in Longmen City—I’ll buy for price of the meal 1000 times.”
The students who were still in class could not help gasping when they heard what she said. Footing the bill 1000 times? Was Yun Jian so rich she had nowhere to spend her money?
“Mn.” Chen Xinyi nodded.
Yun Jian had already gotten up from her seat by then.
The night was breezy and cool but it felt reinvigorating.
“Are you scared?” Yun Jian turned to ask Zhang Shaofeng with a sideway glance on him.
“What’s there to be scared of? I’m going to beat up Zhang Jian until he’s down on the ground today! I won’t ever be a shame to you, master!” Zhang Shaofeng vowed in his mind that he must absolutely win this battle today—because he was now the matter of Yun Jian’s pride!
“Let’s go!” Zhang Shaofeng announced and was going to spread his legs to leave the classroom when Yun Jian’s voice rang, “Give it another two minutes.”
“Huh?” Zhang Shaofeng was confused.
They only had 10 minutes for the break. If they waited another two minutes, it would have already taken four to five minutes by the time they arrived at the back of the school later from class.
Yun Jian merely squinted without providing any explanation.
