Chapter 156

Chapter 156 The Continuously Defeated Minister of War!

“Principal Lin, since you knew about this earlier, why didn’t you tell me? Are you deliberately trying to make fun of me?” The Minister of War, Li Kaiguang, said angrily.

Lin Beifan felt very wronged. “Sir Li, that’s not fair! When I proposed the water training, I already reminded you! Who knew that you didn’t appreciate my kindness and said you had your own arrangements, so I didn’t need to worry about it! If I continue to speak, wouldn’t it annoy people?”

“Well…” Li Kaiguang was speechless.

“Your majesty, and all the civil and military officials can testify for me!” Lin Beifan said with his head held high and righteous indignation.

The empress tried to hold back her laughter and said, “Minister Li, I saw it too. Principal Lin did remind you. It’s just that you didn’t take it seriously and now you blame him for the problem. What kind of logic is that?”

“Your Majesty, I was confused for a while. Please forgive me!” Li Kaiguang quickly bowed.

“You should apologize to Principal Lin, not me!” The empress pointed at Lin Beifan.

Li Kaiguang was greatly unwilling. “How can the Minister of War, such a dignified position, not have such a broad mind?” The empress loudly rebuked him, “It seems that you haven’t learned your lesson yet. Do you need me to teach you how to behave?”

“No…it’s not necessary!” Li Kaiguang turned his head and faced Lin Beifan’s smug smile. He bowed with his hands together and said in great frustration, “Principal Lin, just now I was too impulsive and spoke without thinking. I apologize to you.”

Lin Beifan quickly replied, “Sir Li, it’s alright. Everyone can be impulsive and lose their temper. Just be more careful next time.”

Li Kaiguang was so angry that his mouth was crooked. Will there even be a next time? He even suspected that this whole thing was planned by Lin Beifan just to scheme against him! This sly bastard! If he falls into my hands, I’ll show him!

“Alright, let’s end this matter here.” The empress waved her hand to end the matter.

Next, Lin Beifan shifted his focus back to the Imperial Academy.

Recently, Lin Beifan was very happy. It was the monthly exam again and he had managed to trick a large sum of money from the group of wealthy students.

The little princess was also very pleased. In the past, she could only bully a few dozen students and it was not satisfying enough. But now, she could bully the spoiled rich students from all over the country! She could beat up whoever she didn’t like and it was really enjoyable!

It shouldn’t be called bullying, it should be called loving discipline! She held up a test paper and slapped it onto Gao Tianyu’s face, hands on hips and said angrily, “Look at your results again this time, you failed again! This is the umpteenth time. It’s not just embarrassing for you, but even embarrassing for me as your homeroom teacher!”

Raising her small fist, she asked, “Don’t you think my loving discipline is not enough? Do you want to take a few more punches?”

Gao Tianyu’s face was full of fatigue and he weakly said, “Little Princess, I tried my best! According to my performance in the last monthly exam, I would definitely pass, but who knew that this time the exam paper was so difficult, there was nothing I could do!”

“Yeah, it’s too difficult. It almost cost me my life.”

“Even the students in other classes didn’t pass the exam!”

“My head hurts from it!”

Everyone began to complain.

“Is it really that difficult? Or is it just that you guys don’t know how to take the exam!” The little princess spoke with the authority of someone with experience, “Exams like these have a pattern. You should think about the intentions of the test-makers! Think about why they would come up with questions like this and what they’re testing for! Once you figure it out, answering the questions becomes easy!”

“I’ve figured it out, but I still don’t know!” Gao Tianyu looked despairing, his eyes lifeless.

The little princess was confused, “If you figured it out, why don’t you know how to answer?”

“Because he wants me dead!” Gao Tianyu gritted his teeth.

“Pffft!” The little princess burst out laughing, holding her stomach. “You hit the nail on the head!”

Other students giggled along, “Pffft!”

“Little princess, can you help me convince Principal to stop making such difficult questions? My family is really poor, or at least I’m broke. Please help me out!”

“Yes, little princess, please help me convince Principal! I’ve been studying really hard for the past few months, making a lot of progress! But who knew that the questions he comes up with would just keep getting harder? I’m really hopeless now!”

“Little princess, I’ve already turned over a new leaf, please don’t torture me anymore and give me a chance!”

“Little princess, if I pass this exam, I’ll do anything you ask!”

Everyone begged for her help.

The little princess’s vanity was greatly satisfied. With a smug look on her face, she waved her hand dismissively, “Fine, I’ll go talk to him and ask him to stop setting such difficult questions next time! But I can’t guarantee anything!”

The students were overjoyed, “Thank you, little princess!”

And so, the little princess happily went to find Lin Beifan.

“Little princess, what brings you here?” Lin Beifan put down the document in his hand and smiled.

“Lin Beifan, can you stop making the exams so difficult next time? My students are starting to doubt their lives!” The little princess got straight to the point.

Lin Beifan didn’t understand, “Is it really that difficult? I could do them with my eyes closed!”

The little princess was irritated, “Of course, these questions are easy for you, the new top scholar with triple honors. But for my students, who are all struggling, it’s not easy. They’ve made so much progress in the past few months, but it’s already difficult enough. Please give them a chance, or else I’m afraid they might consider taking their own lives.”

“Alright, next time I won’t make the questions so difficult!” Lin Beifan readily agreed. He knew the concept of “fishing a fish out of a pond step-by-step”. He had to give them a bit of hope and slowly string them along. Once they were fattened up, he could continue to slaughter them.

“Thank you!” The little princess smiled happily, as if Lin Beifan had done it just to make her happy.

She took out a delicate little box from her pocket with some reluctance and expectations. “Lin Beifan, this is my favorite delicacy. Let’s eat it together!”

“Okay!” Lin Beifan nodded with a smile.

The two then climbed to the highest point of the Imperial Academy and sat side by side on the fence, enjoying the beautiful scenery in the distance while eating the delicacy.

The delicacy didn’t last long, only two to three bites. But the view was so beautiful that they didn’t want to leave.

At this point, the sun had already set, casting a warm golden light on them, not scorching, but rather comfortable.

Bathed in the golden sunlight, they shone like gods and goddesses.

“This scenery is so beautiful, I wish it could last forever!” The little princess swayed her short legs boredly, resting her chin on her hands. “I suddenly realized that life is so short and that we often spend it being idle without knowing why or how many beautiful scenes we’ve missed! Sometimes we should slow down, maybe we’ll discover different scenery! Lin Beifan, don’t you think so?”

“Yes, you’re absolutely right!” Lin Beifan nodded immediately.

Then the little princess turned her head to look at Lin Beifan and suddenly asked a philosophical question, “By the way, Lin Beifan, what is the purpose of life?”

“For money and women!” Lin Beifan answered without hesitation.

The little princess punched him with a small fist and angrily said, “You are the new top scholar with triple honors, and also the principal of the Imperial Academy. How can you be so vulgar?”

“For career and love!” Lin Beifan spoke with a lofty tone…

“Good!” The little princess nodded in satisfaction but then was dumbfounded the next second. “Wait, isn’t that same?”

“It is different!” claimed Lin Beifan.

“What’s different?” The little princess asked angrily.

Lin Beifan justified himself, “Money is vulgar, while career is noble! Love is great, and women are…”

“What are women?” The little princess moved closer with her little fist.

“Women are lovely!” Lin Beifan continued to reason. “Therefore, people can live without money, but they can’t live without career! People can live without women, but they can’t live without love!”

The little princess was dumbfounded again. “Without women, how can there be love?”

“Little princess, you are so short-sighted!” Lin Beifan laughed. “Love is great. It not only transcends national boundaries but also overcomes gender and race! Haven’t you heard of this phrase? The love between men is true love, while the love between men and women is only for the continuation of the offspring!”

The little princess laughed angrily, “You really beat me with your nonsense!”

She lightly punched Lin Beifan a few more times, and the two continued to enjoy the sunset scenery.

The little princess turned her head slightly and saw Lin Beifan’s profile. She didn’t know why, but she suddenly thought he looked rather attractive and charming. Blushing, she turned away and continued to rest her chin on her hands, “Lin Beifan, I have another question for you!”

“Go ahead, I’ll tell you everything I know!”

The little princess’s eyes were a little hazy. “I heard that when people are in danger, the person’s name they shout out proves to be the most important person in their heart! Whose name did you shout out when you were in danger?”

After asking, she looked at Lin Beifan expectantly.

“The name I shouted out…” Lin Beifan fell into deep thought and didn’t answer.

The little princess couldn’t help but ask, “Was it your parents’ name?”

Lin Beifan shook his head. “No.”

The little princess asked again, “Was it your siblings’ names?”

Lin Beifan shook his head again. “No, I don’t have any siblings!”

The little princess asked again, “Was it your senior’s name?”

Lin Beifan shook his head again. “No.”

The little princess asked again, “Was it Sister Shi Shi’s name?”

Lin Beifan shook his head again. “No.”

After asking around, Lin Beifan still did not answer.

The little princess became angry. “Who was it?”

Lin Beifan furrowed his brows. “I don’t know! I’ve been thinking, ‘What the f*ck?’ I guess I would call the name when I was in danger!”

“What the f*ck!” The little princess exclaimed.

“Little princess, so you’re the same!” Lin Beifan seemed to have found a kindred spirit and said happily.

“Get lost! Who said we’re kindred spirits? Who shouts out that word in danger?” The little princess punched him again and said through her laughter, “You’re trying to make me laugh to death…are you satisfied?”

She was so happy inside!

This guy is really something, always unintentionally making her happy!

She wished it could go on like this forever and ever!

Just then, they noticed a person in armor riding a black horse galloping quickly down the street ahead.

Riding wildly like a bull, no one could stop him.

Lin Beifan’s and the little princess’s faces changed.

“Urgent message from 800 miles away! Something big has happened!”
