Chapter 36 A Question That Kills

After beating Fei Gou and Chu Gan to the point their faces were swollen like pigs, Xue Ying patted her hands in an extremely relaxed manner and walked over towards Bai Xiaofei and Lin Li.

“Tell me everything that should be told. Don’t tell me that both of you were pursued because of a disagreement because that isn’t something you’re capable of.” Even though she’d merely come into contact with Bai Xiaofei for a little over a day, Xue Ying already had a deep understanding of his character which was capable of surviving everywhere.

Lin Li looked at Bai Xiaofei with a bewildered expression when Xue Ying asked this because he had only told her that they had to run earlier and didn’t make the reason clear to her. Actually, if they really were to fight each other, just she was enough to deal with both Fei Gou and Chu Gan.

Bai Xiaofei didn’t know if he should feel happy or helpless while the two beauties were staring at him with questioning gazes. He let out a long sigh and started telling the story from the moment he had arrived at Starnet Academy.

“Wait, transform? This husky is a puppet capable of Mimicry?!” Xue Ying interrupted Bai Xiaofei when he had only gotten to telling the story halfway. Her face was covered in shock.

Even though he was asked this question again, Bai Xiaofei nodded very patiently, and then he noticed Xue Ying’s gaze, which seemed as if she was looking at a treasure.

“How much fortune have I accumulated in my previous lifetimes to actually encounter two treasures at once!?” Xue Ying’s face carried a trace of joy as she instantly charged at Bai Xiaofei, embraced and held him up, and spun around twice. After that, she picked up Huskie from the ground before rubbing her face against him.

“Little fellow, tell Big Sister if anyone bullies you in the future. I guarantee that I’ll beat him up to the point his mother can’t recognize him!” Xue Ying guaranteed seriously, causing Huskie’s eyes to light up. Huskie slowly turned his head towards Bai Xiaofei then revealed a sly smile that was exactly alike to Bai Xiaofei’s.

Across from him, Bai Xiaofei hurriedly stretched out two fingers, but Huskie instantly shook his head. Huskie only revealed a satisfied expression when Bai Xiaofei added finger after finger until the fifth one.

“What? Did he bully you?” Xue Ying turned around, and Bai Xiaofei hastily put his palm away.

“How could that be possible? Huskie is my puppet. I don’t even have enough time to dote on him, so how could I possibly bully him? You can ask him if you don’t believe me!” 

Xue Ying was indeed distrustful of Bai Xiaofei as she really asked Huskie about it.

What she never expected was that Huskie actually nodded in an extremely human manner.

“He can understand?” Xue Ying couldn’t help exclaiming in surprise once again, and then a trace of bewilderment arose on her face.

Animate puppets were usually obtained from signing a contract with magical beasts, and the rank of a magical beast basically decided the animate puppet’s initial rank and limit of advancement.

Moreover, the characteristic of being able to act like humans usually only appeared in Enlightened Rank magical beasts, but Enlightened Rank magical beasts corresponded to red-grade puppets. Even if the magical beast underwent the transformation into an animate puppet and the corresponding consumption of strength, the initial rank of the puppet would absolutely not be lower than yellow grade.

But according to what Bai Xiaofei had said earlier, not only was Huskie at the blue-grade, he had also just advanced to this grade. So, this was a contradiction that was difficult to understand.

“I don’t know. According to what my foster fathers and foster mothers said, my father had forcefully made Huskie into my puppet when I was just born. So even I don’t know what rank he was at in the past.” Bai Xiaofei shrugged as he spoke, once more stunning Xue Ying. Binding an animate puppet to an infant isn’t something an ordinary person is capable of accomplishing. If one wants utmost certainty, then this puppet master is at least an Exquisite Rank expert!

“Your father is…”

“I’ve never seen him in my life. He gave me to my foster fathers and foster mothers while I was still an infant, and I only know his name.” Bai Xiaofei’s face seemed to not carry any sorrow as he spoke, and it seemed as if he didn’t feel anything for his father. 

On the other hand, Xue Ying revealed an expression Bai Xiaofei was unable to understand.

“Forget it, let’s not mention him because I can’t count on him. If you weren’t here, Big Sister Xue, then my butt would have definitely been split open.” Bai Xiaofei felt sincere gratitude as he spoke, and he deeply felt a single thing: The Starnet Academy couldn’t be compared to the Gorge of Heroes because no matter what trouble he caused in the Gorge of Heroes, he had his foster parents standing behind him, so no one dared to do anything to him. But it wasn’t the same here.

“If you had said you’re a Mimicry Stream puppet master at the beginning, I would have placed emphasis on protecting you a long time ago. How could you possibly be pursued by others?” Xue Ying raised her head slightly, and her complacency crept onto her face.

After being proud for a second, Xue Ying instantly became a little girl who wanted to listen to a story. “Continue. I haven’t figured out how you got targeted by her.” 

Bai Xiaofei’s experiences in this time of a little over a day could absolutely be written into a textbook for Mimicry Stream puppet masters…

So, Bai Xiaofei completely and utterly gave an account of all the “evil doings” he had committed since entering Starnet Academy. During this period, Xue Ying repeatedly roared with endless laughter, and even Lin Li occasionally revealed a trace of a smile.

Bai Xiaofei’s courage and decisiveness entered deep into the hearts of the two women.

“So in this way, the entrance to our classroom will be extremely bustling tonight?” Xue Ying smiled lightly and seemed to be slightly anticipating the arrival of night. She seemed as if the “warmup” she had earlier wasn’t to her heart’s content.

“It wouldn’t just be bustling, it ought to be seething with noise and commotion…” Bai Xiaofei frowned slightly and couldn’t help but laugh bitterly. I’ve really overdone it this time.

“Then, do you think I should borrow a student’s uniform?” 

As Bai Xiaofei looked at Xue Ying who was itching for action, he suddenly had the impulse to mourn for the seniors who might come. “Why do you need to borrow a student’s uniform?”

“The academy explicitly prohibits teachers from making a move against students. Of course, self-defense is excluded, so it will save me a lot of trouble if I wear a student’s uniform.” Xue Ying raised and lowered her brows twice, and her playful self couldn’t be related to the word “teacher” in the slightest. In contrast to her, Bai Xiaofei revealed a speechless expression.

“I didn’t see you considering this when you bashed those two seniors earlier…”

“I was worried. Who asked you to be pursued all the way back? Moreover, I’ve only assumed the position of head teacher for a short period of time, so I may accidentally forget many rules,” Xue Ying said, her gaze drifting towards the distance as she spoke. It caused Bai Xiaofei to have no choice but to deeply believe that the latter half of what she said was the true reason she dared to boldly make a move.

He said, “Actually, I can find a way to deal with it even if you don’t help—”

“It’s decided!” Xue Ying made her final decision before Bai Xiaofei finished speaking. Based on her attitude, Bai Xiaofei couldn’t stop her even if he wanted to.

“Little Li, bring me one of your uniforms later. It just so happens that our figures aren’t much different,” Xue Ying said, and Bai Xiaofei couldn’t help but glance at the two of them.

It would have been fine if he didn’t look, but blood almost sprayed out of Bai Xiaofei’s nostrils as soon as he did.

For the sake of convenience, Xue Ying wore combat clothes and didn’t obstruct the view of all the things that should be revealed, and those that shouldn’t be revealed weren’t completely obstructed either. The snow white that invaded Bai Xiaofei’s eyes caused his eyes to hurt.

On the other hand, Lin Li wore a student’s uniform and possessed a trace of reserved beauty, and her exquisite features seemed even more beautiful.

“Aiyoyo, our Little Fei’s face has gone red. Come, why don’t you tell us which of us looks better?” As soon as she finished speaking, Xue Ying revealed her proud figure even more boldly, and at the same time, she didn’t forget to tighten Lin Li’s clothes, causing a pair of proud peaks that refused to be outdone to emerge.

Moreover, for some unknown reason, Lin Li actually didn’t refuse Xue Ying’s actions, and she instead stared fixedly at Bai Xiaofei with a flushed face.

A question that kills, to answer or not to answer?
