Chapter 149: His Highness Drank Vinegar
"Pfff." Helian Wei Wei couldn't control herself and laughed softly.
Nangong Lie's whole body felt like it was choking. That wickedly handsome face burst into alternating red and white colors and looked very unsightly, enough to make him look like he was ill!
That's why it's been said, if we were to quarrel, don't pit ourselves against a certain someone. In a moment of carelessness, we'd entrap ourselves!
"You chose divination, he chose martial qi." Wei Wei stretched her body. "The principal's intent is to have us talk it over and decide who should go onstage first."
"Doesn't matter." Nangong Lie uninhibitedly turned to the pillar behind him and leaned on it. When his eyes swept over the side of Baili Jia Jue's face, he unexpectedly raised his eyebrows.
Nangong Lie didn't care. Baili Jia Jue cared even less. He tall, graceful body stood there and casually said. "Whatever."
Wei Wei had previously always felt that she was unorganized and careless. Seeing these two people today, she discovered that she was actually the more 'well-behaved' student'.
However……the matter of who should go up first, um……
"Then how about since divination required more time, divination should go up first. The two of us can then sleep offstage. Next will be me, and last, martial qi, is that OK?" Wei Wei again wanted to embody a democratic mindset.
Nangong Lie rascally seemed to mutter. "I also want to sleep offstage." Taking turns to sleep during the competition, thinking about it, ha, how cool that was going to be!
"Among us three, only you don't require physical strength." Wei Wei's lips curved into a smile. "The person who doesn't require physical strength, does he need to sleep?"
Nangong Lie hadn't replied when Baili Jia Jue already opened his mouth. "He doesn't need it. Continue."
Who says he didn't need it! ! ! When he performed divination was when he expended the most mental focus, all right? !
"You can sleep during the divination." Wei Wei was originally joking, but didn't expect Nangong Lie's eyes to suddenly light up. "That's a great idea."
From beginning to end, Shadow, who was listening by the side, was totally at a loss.
Were these three people actually participating in a competition, or were they going there to sleep……
"No matter what, for the sake of the award money, we must win." Wei Wei laughed lightly, flowing out like a spring wind.
Shadow……this time, he could be considered to have experienced what was meant by 'money will make the devil turn millstones'.
The purpose of White Academy holding this competition, shouldn't be mainly on account of the award money, right? !
Wei Wei was beaming as she added. "There's also the beautiful vacation."
Shadow: …… how about the understanding that the competition was about the honor of each compound? !
"I heard that based on the way it's been done at White Academy in previous years, competitors from every compound all practiced ahead of time. Should we also practice?" Wei Wei paused then continued, "practice together?"
Nangong Lie shook his head, faced the sky, and lamented. "When I perform divination, I'm too sexy. I'm afraid that you won't be able to control yourself and fall in love with me."
"Hehe." The corners of Wei Wei's mouth twitched.
Baili Jia Jue's demonically charming thin lips moved. "Not necessary."
His two word reply actually was identical to Wei Wei's thought. "I also feel that it's unnecessary to waste time practicing together." Wei Wei stretched out her body and curved her lips into a smile. If they were together, she'd have misgivings, instead.
Actually, the two young men were the same. Compared to Wei Wei, they were even more concerned that while practicing, they might expose some clues in regards to their identities.
"At that time, we need to compete first with the good compound." Wei Wei rolled up the papers the principal gave her and handed to them. "This is the list of names for the Good Compound. It's two out of three matches. In other words, if we win the first two matches, then the third person won't need to appear."
After hearing that, Nangong Lie's turned to lie on top of the stone table. "Aah, if I'd known earlier, I would've insisted on being the third person!" That way, he wouldn't even need to to on stage!
When facing the Superior Compound, the competition system changes." Wei Wei's eyebrows jumped. "It's decided by the school that divination goes third, and completely opposite to the previous position. However, we need to first win over the Good and Fine Compounds."
"Then that will take a comparatively long period of time." Nangong Lie extended his hand to roll up his long hair, while his eyes looked up, pondering something else.
Baili Jia Jue grasped the porcelain cup in front of him and calmly took a sip, his posture graceful, filled with a strong aura of self-restraint. "Not necessarily."
"Not necessarily? You feel that we won't win?" Nangong Lie knit his brows, that shouldn't be. Even though everyone said that Helian Wei Wei, this young lady, was a good-for-nothing, however, based on his observations during this short time, she wasn't that simple.
Baili Jia Jue arranged his sleeves, and glanced at Nangong Lie in an aloof manner. "Not necessarily need to use a lot of time."
Nangong Lie was stunned before he came around. He'd misunderstood the other person's meaning.
"You mean to say that we will certainly face the Superior Compound, and that when we handle the Good and Fine Compounds, we won't take that much time?" After Nangong Lie silently confirmed this, he took a long time to add one more statement. "You're saying this, but have you thought about what the people from the Good and Fine Compounds will think."
Your Highness, you're only a student from the Inferior Compound!
Even if the reality was this way, you couldn't be that aggressive, right? !
"I like this proposal!" Nangong Lie smiled uninhibitedly as he faced Wei Wei and said. "Then let's decide on that. We're going to blitzkrieg (speed through) the first two compounds!"
Wei Wei was sitting with her legs slightly elevated. Her expression didn't change much at all. From start to finish, there was a light smile on her lips which was comfortable to look at. "This proposal is not bad. However, the Good and Fine Compounds are not as easy to defeat as we imagine. At least, when we reach the Fine Compound, the Hei family's young master will be an obstruction and won't be easy at all."
"A son of the Hei family?" Nangong Lie first glanced at Baili Jia Jue. After that, he meaningfully turned his head back and faced Wei Wei to say. "It seems that you have a very high assessment of him."
Wei Wei also didn't lift her head as she looked at the paper she's rolling up and replied. "He's indeed worthy of attention. I feel that he's even stronger than those people at the Superior Compound."
"Oooh, so it's like that." Nangong Lie lengthened his intonation as his eyes turned towards Baili Jia Jue's direction and glanced over.
There wasn't the slightest bit of change on Baili Jia Jue's face, merely that the hand hidden inside his sleeves became slightly sluggish. There were even layers of water ripples forming within the cup he was holding.
That pair of originally soft eyes also became ice-cold and difficult to sense at this time.
Seeing that he sat there so calmly, Nangong Lie even felt that he hadn't stirred things up enough and added. "Putting it this way, you even quite admire him?"
"You can say it like that." Wei Wei's finger tapped on the names of opponents that merited attention and pushed forward a bit. She originally wanted to have the guy sitting in front of her take a look at the opponent he'd face, Young Master Yuan, but when she met the pair of eyes as cold and chilly as ice, she couldn't help but pause a bit. "What is it?"
Baili Jia Jue let go of the teacup in his hand and lazily and demonically smiled. There wasn't the slightest bit of warmth in his eyes. "Nothing."
"Is your face hurting again?" Wei Wei could only think of this one thing as her smiling expression became milder. "Don't worry. When the finals of the competition comes around, we'll also have those brothers properly taste the flavor of being hit in the face……"
