Chapter 126: An Qualified Opponent (Part Two)
“You would all say that it is pitiful, right? But you would pardon Gongzi Xie for the accident, pardon him for accidentally killing an insignificant border soldier. In the eyes of you people from big families, even if you killed people, it is nothing big, and it wouldn’t affect you. But if I did it to him, it would be unforgivable and vicious?” Fang Jie shook his head with a cold grin.
“Your anger is filled with righteousness!” After saying that, Fang Jie slowly stomped down.
“Is it worth it to kill someone you defeated and destroy your own future?” At this moment, Principal Zhou slowly floated down from the city wall. He didn’t fall; he floated down as if he was standing on a cloud.
With his hands behind his back, he said to Fang Jie calmly, “Killing someone who tried to kill you doesn’t seem wrong. Although it goes against the rules of the Martial Arts Academy, I saw Xie Fuyao trying to kill you first, so what you are about to do counts as self-defense. In the most severe case, it is self-defense with excessive force.”
“However.” Principal Zhou landed on the ground and walked over while saying, “Even if you aren’t charged with a crime, what can you gain from it? Momentary thrill? Then dozens of years of regret? Without a doubt, if you can’t even control this much anger, you won’t have the chance to regret for dozens of years, not even years in that matter.”
Fang Jie looked toward Principal Zhou with a frown.
Principal Zhou smiled and added, “I won’t tell you to forgive him and turn this incident into something good. In my opinion, people need to seek revenge. Since he hit you, you need to hit back. If he hit you, yet you endured it and did nothing, the Martial Arts Academy wouldn’t accept you. However, there is a difference between being dumb and being fearless.”
“Why are you trying to dissuade me?” Fang Jie suddenly asked, “With your strength, you can stop me with a flick of a finger. You can probably even knock me away and turn me into a pile of flesh, right?”
Principal Zhou shook his head and said, “No… If I want to do that, I don’t even need to move my finger.”
“Ok.” Fang Jie took a deep breath and moved his foot back. “I won’t kill him then.”

Not many participants arrived on time.
Since so many people ate too much this morning, most of them puked non-stop and were in bad condition. The rest of them fought with each other, immobilizing many.
When the sun climbed to the middle of the sky, the professors of the academy announced the end of the first two tests. The participants who didn’t reach the small city all failed these two tests, and the ones who did were all given excellent ratings.
Although this evaluation matrix seemed simple and generous, only six people reached the small city on time.
Fang Jie reached the small city with Zhang Kuang on his back, and Cui Pingzhou and Pei Chuxing got there before them.
For some reason, Yu Xiao who seemed to dislike Xie Fuyao walked over to him and helped him get up before walking to the small city together.
Only the six of them obtained excellent ratings in the first two tests.
This battle seemed too tragic.
Fang Jie put Zhang Kuang down on the ground, letting the latter lean against the city wall and rest.
Zhang Kuang panted while looking at Fang Jie with gratitude and thanking him.
Fang Jie didn’t say anything; he turned around and walked back.
Zhang Kuang stared at him and asked, “What are you doing?”
Fang Jie replied without looking back, “Bringing our brothers over the finish line.”
Zhang Kuang froze for a moment and shouted, “The time limit already past!”
Fang Jie shook his head and walked toward the gate of the training field in silence.
Although those soldiers whose seas of qi were sealed regained their freedom after Xie Fuyao was defeated, they couldn’t recover their stamina after their seas of qi were restricted for so long.
Those soldiers were still lying before the gate of the training field, and some of them crawled to their peers and asked about their injuries.
Fang Jie walked to the gate and apologized to his peers who were panting. Then, he helped one soldier get up before carrying him on his back and walking toward the direction of the small city.
