Chapter 29: What a Flock of Fat Sheep, It’s Time to Slowly Fleece Them!
This strike was truly fatal, causing the young man to cry out in pain as his skin and flesh split open.
Everyone was stunned!
They never imagined that Lin Beifan would actually take action!
And he went all out!
He wasn’t afraid of offending the Minister of Personnel, was he not afraid of death?
Lin Beifan held the stick in his hand, turned his head to the other yamen students and said, “And you, those who make the same mistake as him, will also be caned four hundred times! Will you choose money or life?”
These students-childern of officials were all scared to tears.
Of course, they chose life, but the problem was that they didn’t have much money! Some of the money was just given to the spn of Minister of Personnel!
They never thought they would suffer along with him!
“Can we owe you?” They asked pitifully.
Lin Beifan waved his stick and sneered, “What do you think?”
They quietly pulled out their silver coins from their pockets.
In the end, Lin Beifan took another 600,000 taels from this group of students-children of officials, feeling very satisfied, “What a flock of fat sheep, can’t just kill them with one strike, we have to slowly fleece them!”
Then, Lin Beifan enforced school rules.
He didn’t hit as hard as before, but it still made them feel like they were dying in pain and they cried out in agony.
“Don’t scream! Do you know that when I hit you, it hurts me too?” Lin Beifan said while beating them, his heart in pain.
“Then why are you hitting us?” The students-children of officials were both in pain and aggrieved.
“Because I like the feeling of heartache!” Lin Beifan said smugly.
The students-children of officials thought to themselves: What a despicable person!
After enforcing the school rules, none of them could stand up.
They were all lying on the ground, looking lifeless.
Lin Beifan threw down the stick and said, “I hope you remember this lesson and reform yourselves! Come to class tomorrow on time, even if you have to lay down, you have to come! Otherwise, I will punish you severely! Got it?”
“We got it!” The students-children of officials responded weakly.
“In addition, let other students who skipped class know! If they don’t come tomorrow, I’ll let them know why the flowers are so red!” Lin Beifan added.
“Yes!” They responded again.
Just at that moment, Liu Huaye and Sun Tiandao ran over anxiously.
Poor Liu Huaye, he was getting old, thin and weak. Running was like his body was falling apart.
They saw the bloody scene in front of them and almost fainted. Liu Huaye’s voice trembled, “Sir Lin, how… how could you… how could you beat them?”
Lin Beifan arched his hand and calmly said, “Report to Principal Liu, these are a group of problematic students who bully others! Not only are they often late and leave early, but they also show no remorse after being criticized and insulted and beat me, which is a very serious offense! So according to the regulations of the Imperial Academy, I punished them. Please investigate, Principal!”
Liu Huaye was scared and his face turned white! How could he investigate this? He even felt like he wanted to strangle Lin Beifan!
“Sir Lin, do you know their status?”
“Of course, I do!”
Lin Beifan calmly said, “This one is called Gao Tianyu, the son of the Minister of Personnel, Gao Tianyao! This one is the Deputy Minister of Personnel’s…” Lin Beifan introduced them one by one.
Finally, he said righteously, “As the son of an official of the court, they should focus on studying hard and serving the court, but instead, they break the rules, ignore and destroy the regulations of the Imperial Academy. I have to punish them strictly! However, I will let them off the hook this time since they are my students and I won’t expel them from the Imperial Academy.”
“Lin, you’re confused and completely wrong…” Liu Huanye said worriedly. Lin Beifan asked, “They made a mistake, and I punished them according to the regulations of the Imperial Academy. Is there anything wrong with that?”
“No…” Liu Huanye replied. Lin Beifan asked again, “As the director of the Imperial Academy, I am responsible for the student’s conduct, discipline, and academic performance. Does it go against the regulations of the Imperial Academy to punish them for their mistakes?”
“No…” Liu Huai replied again.
“Since there’s nothing wrong, why do you blame me?” Lin Beifan asked confidently.
“Aish, I can’t argue with you. I can only say that things aren’t always right just because it’s reasonable. You’re too young!”
Liu Huanye left with a wave of his sleeve, “I won’t care about this anymore. You take responsibility for everything and don’t drag me into this!”
“Don’t worry about it, Principal!” Lin Beifan said loudly.
Looking at the leaving figure, he felt disdainful inside, “The older people get, the more cowardly they become!” In the end, these young masters were carried out by others.
Lin Beifan continued to work as if nothing had happened, and happily went home after work.
At dinner, Li Shi Shi asked with a smile, “Sir, today is your first day in office. How do you feel? Can you tell me?”
“Of course!” Lin Beifan touched the thick silver taels in his chest and said happily, “My colleagues at the Imperial Academy are very nice, and the students are very enthusiastic. I feel like I’m a welcome guest here! I came to the right place!”
“That’s good. Shi Shi can rest assured.” Li Shishi smiled slightly. After eating two bites, she put down her chopsticks, looked uneasy and looked at Lin Beifan.
She hesitated and said, “Sir, I have always had something on my mind that I wanted to tell you. If I don’t say it, I’ll feel guilty, so I…”
“What is it? Don’t keep it in your heart. It’s easy to get sick!” Lin Beifan asked while eating.
“Yes, Sir!” Li Shishi finally plucked up the courage to speak.
