Urban Martial Arts System - Chapter 8
The principal and Director Zheng stopped after taking half a step. Although the sound of a hand breaking was minute, it was clear for martial arts masters like them.
Wu Jingshan’s face turned pale from pain, and big beads of sweat covered his forehead.
“What…” With a scream, Wu Jingshan staggered a few steps back.
“You dare attack me?” Zhou Ping turned around with a cold expression. The anger in his eyes was enough to ignite the air. He knew that with the strength Wu Jingshan used, his previous self, would have died. Wu Jingshan, do you want to kill me?
Zhou Ping took a step forward, his expression grim.
Zhou Ping hit Wu Jingshan’s mouth, and Wu Jingshan’s lips burst with a mist of blood. Wu Jingshan flew, fell to the ground, and rolled a few times without screaming.
Everyone was dumbfounded.
Director Zheng was the first to react and rushed in front of Wu Jingshan. He stretched out his hand to check.
“We can still help!” Director Zheng tapped Wu Jingshan several times.
“Zhou Ping killed someone?”
“My god, what did he do?”
Seeing Wu Jingshan’s mouth bleeding like a fountain, all the candidates thought that Wu Jingshan was dead. They were at a loss. After all, they were just high school students. The killing was more than a shock for them.
The happiest person was Li Xiaoyi. “Zhou Ping, you actually killed Wu Jingshan. A murderer like you should be put in prison. Do you still want to enter Qingyang University? A murderer like you shouldn’t enter any school.”
“Zhou Ping, get out of school!”
Li Xiaoyi hysterically yelled, thinking that she could move some people. It’s a pity that there were no fools. Zhou Ping looked around, and no one dared to speak out. Only Li Xiaoyi was howling like a clown.
Even if it was murder, Zhou Ping would not be at fault.
Wu Jingshan sneak attacked first. In this world where martial arts was prosperous, a sneak attack was the greatest shame for warriors and was extremely despised. Even if Zhou Ping killed him, everyone would think he deserved it.
What’s more was that Zhou Ping actually took measures when he attacked. Regardless of Wu Jingshan’s injury, there was no need to worry about him dying.
“Director Zheng, look at this…”
The principal was also a little guilty. In his school, such a thing happened.
“In martial arts practice, injuries are common.” Director Zheng took Zhou Ping’s side without hesitation. “Wu Jingshan attacked first. Zhou Ping was just defending himself.”
Director Zheng’s words meant that the matter was already settled. The principal heaved a sigh of relief.
“It’s not fair. You’re sheltering him.” Li Xiaoyi finally saw a glimmer of hope of getting rid of Zhou Ping, and she wasn’t willing to let go. Pointing at Director Zheng, Li Xiaoyi’s lungs almost burst. “Zhou Ping killed someone. He should at least be disqualified from the examination and be detained till interrogation. You actually said that he is not guilty. It is simply…”
Before Li Xiaoyi could finish, she felt a shock at the back of her head. She suddenly lost consciousness.
“Sorry, she can’t stand the blow and talked nonsense. Don’t take it to your heart.” Zhou Ping Ping lifted Li Xiaoyi and threw her onto the chair.
“Um… It’s okay. It’s okay.” Director Zheng and the principal were speechless for a while. It was said that the children of wealthy families were lawless. Today, they had seen a little bit of that. Zhou Ping punched Wu Jingshan, then knocked Li Xiaoyi. More importantly, these things were done without regard to them.
However, nothing could be done. If Zhou Ping was just a simple genius, the two of them were not afraid. A genius who had not grown couldn’t be considered a genius. After all, there were still a lot of geniuses. But Zhou Ping’s background was different.
A grandfather who was a member of the National Standing Committee, and a father who was the mayor of Yu Qing City. These two people alone were enough to silence most people. Moreover, Zhou Ping’s mother was not simple. Not to mention, her family was also a wealthy family. She was controlling a huge business empire.
Such a person was someone they couldn’t afford to offend.
“Well, Wu Jingshan was just injured and not dead. Where is the ambulance? Send him to the hospital to be treated,” Director Zheng shouted.
The candidates were also relieved to hear that Wu Jingshan was not dead. After all, no one wanted to be with a murderer.
“Although he didn’t die, his heart and pulse were seriously damaged. The bones around his mouth were smashed and fractured. His lungs were also seriously injured. From now on, Wu Jingshan might not be able to use martial arts anymore.” Director Zheng added in a low voice.
For a former top student, it’s better to die if he couldn’t use martial arts anymore.
Martial arts were difficult. A single misstep could lead to hell.
“Okay, there was just a small accident. Let’s continue the test.” Zhou Ping clapped his hands, but he was quite modest earlier.
Despite his family background, it didn’t matter even if he killed him. But Zhou Ping knew that for a martial artist, losing the qualification to practice martial arts was definitely more cruel than killing him.
What’s more, Wu Jingshan’s sneak attack came first. At most, he would lose some money. Problems that could be solved with money couldn’t be considered a problem.
“Sure enough, this guy cannot be treated with common sense. I still remember that when I first saw blood, I had nightmares at night…” Director Zheng whispered.
“The exam continues. Since Young Master Zhou is very strong, let me test him myself.” Director Zheng took the initiative this time. With his hands behind his back, he walked to Zhou Ping with his head held high. The next second, Director Zheng’s shocked everyone.
“Young Master Zhou, be merciful. This is just a test. Don’t take it too seriously…”
Countless people staggered, almost becoming unsteady.
“Have you made a mistake? A director of the Martial Arts Bureau actually said such a thing to an examinee? What about your integrity? Your face?”
“I think I might have seen a fake Martial Arts Bureau director.”
The candidates gossiped.
Director Zheng was also helpless.
“Have you seen anyone who can shatter a tester with five hundred points? Have you ever seen someone who can cripple others with one punch? When Wu Jingshan punched Zhou Ping, not only did he not cause any harm to Zhou Ping, but he broke his hand instead. What does this mean? It means that Zhou Ping has extremely practiced.” Director Zheng wanted to yell this at the students, but he could only sigh in his heart.
“Okay, be quiet. The test begins.” The principal stood up, silenced everyone, and announced the beginning of the test.
“You go first.” Director Zheng didn’t care about his own face as the director. He took a defensive stance, and Zhou Ping had to take the first shot.
“Shhh…” The whole martial arts field booed.
“Then I’ll do it. Be at ease, Director Zheng. I will control my strength,” Zhou Ping said with sincerity.
“Come…” Director Zheng was sad that he was actually underestimated. However, as soon as he said that, he saw a gradually getting bigger fist approaching him.
“So fast. So painful.” This was Director Zheng felt before fainting.
In other people’s view, Zhou Ping disappeared as soon as Director Zheng finished uttering the word “come”. When he reappeared, he was in front of Director Zheng. Then, he hit Director Zheng in the eye. Director Zheng did not respond during the whole process.
“Don’t talk about Director Zheng. No one will believe us. Director Zheng was already advanced in martial arts.” The principal trembled as he walked onto the stage. He stared at Director Zheng, who was knocked out.
“Hurry up and help Director Zheng.” His yell brought the others back. Several of Director Zheng’s men came over and took out a medicine.
“Uhm, principal, I didn’t mean it. I really didn’t use much energy,” Zhou Ping said, embarrassed. The principal suddenly felt his blood pressure rise.
