The teacher on duty was a little old man filled with a brimming sense of justice. He was not yet 50 years old but his hair was snow white. To cover that up, he had even kept up with the times and gone to color it black.
He held a baton in his hand—which was actually a branch snapped off of a tree. He was infuriated when he was told that a group of boys was in a gang fight again, so he broke a branch off the tree on his way here and ran over with his hackles raised.
It was the teacher’s duty week. How dare the students get into a gang fight right in front of the school gate? Bunch of rascals! Did they not know about the intimidation of the Male Tiger?
Right. This teacher on duty was the head teacher in Longmen Yi Junior High School, Mr. Zhang. Mr. Zhang was usually a strict little old man and liked nitpicking and carping.
Students in school gave him a nickname—Male Tiger. It meant that once Mr. Zhang got his hands on something, he would continually picked on it and get to the bottom of it no matter what. Like a tiger, once it set its eyes on a prey, it was not letting it go. That was how the nickname, Male Tiger, came into existence.
Mr. Zhang himself knew about the nickname the students gave him. Not only was he not enraged, he joked about it as long as the students were not doing anything against the school rules.
Basically, he was strict with a sense of humor, a teacher who could get along with the students. Although he was quite terrifying when he got stern, the students liked him.
There was one thing about Mr. Zhang that was admirable—he put it upon himself to look out for weaker lot. The girls in school, for example, was his assumed weaker group as it was also a fact that girls were physically weaker than boys.
Therefore, when he saw a big group of boys surrounding Yun Jian, it went without saying—to him—that these boys were trying to bully a helpless girl. That was why he snapped a branch in rage and bolted over to knock the boys’ heads.
Consequently? The girl actually said that “It’s none of their business. I’m the one who got into the gang fight.” after he hit all the guys on the head huffing and puffing?
The one in the gang fight was her? What?
Mr. Zhang froze there, staring blankly at Yun Jian with the stick raised in his hand. He was in disbelief.
Getting into group fights was considered a demerit with penalty in school—Yun Jian knew as much. Moreover, Zhang Shaofeng had brought along these guys because of her. She had always been biased to her own people; she would repay a favor with a bigger favor. That was simply her principle in life.
“Where are they? If these boys aren’t the ones bullying you, t-then where are the ones who did?” Mr. Zhang was not a gullible man. He looked around and asked Yun Jian.
“Young lady, if these guys are harassing you, let me know. I’ll make sure they dare not do it again!” Mr. Zhang added, thinking that Yun Jian was too scared to speak the truth from being bullied by these guys here.
It was just that Yun Jian interrupted him right after he said that.
“I defeated them,” Yun Jian said with a smile. She flicked the butterfly knife gently and pocketed it after the blades were tucked together in a smooth motion.
“Huh? You defeated them?” Mr. Zhang obviously did not believe what she said and wanted to say more but a voice quipped from the side.
It was a student who was not from Longmen Yi Junior High School but had been an onlooker since the start.
“Heh, little old man, she was amazing just now—she fought 20 over boys alone! And stamped a foot down on a guy’s stomach too! Got a knife up against his neck too—so cool! I saw it all!
