Thinking about it, even if the Big Miss was sitting next to him, she was still out of reach.
Lin Shu silently read the textbook <<Outer Dan Techniques>>
Ling Fengxiao did not speak, and also flipped through her book.
In that moment, only the whispering and laughing voices of the disciples from Shu Institution could be heard in front of them.
When it was thirty minutes before the next class, a red shadow suddenly appeared at the door. Ling Baochen stood at the door frame and peered in.
Ling Fengxiao saw this, and got up to leave, and didn’t return for a long time.
Lin Shu felt a bit more comfortable.
When he was in school, he was always in the corner of the classroom, without a deskmate next to him. Now, there were only thirty red furnaces in the whole hall, and they were placed very closed. The entire hall was so full of disciples that it was impossible to stay away from classmates. Like this, the distance between Ling Fengxiao became too close, and it made people feel a little uncomfortable.
As soon as Ling Fengxiao left, his speed at reading increased.
Under the theory of immortality, Dan is divided into Outer Dan and Inner Dan.
Outer Dan is the mystical spirit medicine made by the gifted and the talented in the sacred furnaces, while Inner Dan was made by cultivators who used their body as the furnace, cultivating their spirit into medicine, treating the sky as their fire, and condensing their spirit into a Qidan. After cultivating a Qidan, a Jindan of minute size would appear in the Dantian. The Qi of the whole body converged and diverged in the Jindan, and the seven paths were connected. It was the so-called crossing into the realm of Jindan.
Lin Shu’s foundations were far from ready, so he naturally didn’t even have to think about Jindan. Thus, this course he chose was just an introductory course of refining Outer Dan.
According to this <<Outer Dan Technique>>, the class this morning should be explaining the principles and basic materials needed to help create a Dan.
As he read, he heard footsteps behind him. They got closer and closer, sounding slightly superficial, and they weren’t Ling Fengxiao’s footsteps.
When the sound was so close that it couldn’t get any closer, Lin Shu turned around and looked at the person.
He was a teenger in Xingjin robes. The texture of the clothes was obviously very gorgeous, but the man had a bit of gloom trapped in his brows, and a lazy expression on his face.
His expression swept casually across the hall, and finally walked over to the only empty furnace next to Lin Shu.
Ling Fengxiao was not there, but the textbook was left there, as if he didn’t see it and was planning to sit down.
Lin Shu: “There is someone sitting here.”
The man raised his eyebrows, lifted his foot and kicked the <<Outer Dan Technique>> book a few feet away, and didn’t appear like he was willing to leave. He adjusted his clothes and prepared to sit down.
At this moment, a Shu Institution disciple in front of Lin Shu coughed.
This cough was clearly born without reason, and was very deliberate.
Did you cough for me? To tell me to not intervene?
He had obtained a lot of information about this academy from the books in the library. He knew that there were many young masters here, as well as many people who were relatives of people he couldn’t afford to mess with. Since he was alone, he should try to avoid unreasonable things.
Lin Shu: “…”
The man in front of him was so pretentious and unreasonable that it seemed he would be in trouble anyway today.
The student in front pretended to cough again, as if to remind him that if he tried to speak to stop this person from sitting down again, he might be targeted by this person.
However, if he didn’t stop him, then once Ling Fengxiao came back and saw that her seat was occupied, she might explode into a pufferfish one more, and her anger might spill over to affect Lin Shu who was sitting by the side.

Lin Shu decided to believe in Ling Fengxiao.
He continued to say: “There is someone here.”
The man’s inattentive gaze suddenly turned cold, and he turned his head to look at Lin Shu. He took two steps forward, putting on a conquering air.
He reached out his right hand, pinched Lin Shu’s neck, and said coldly: “What value do you have?”
He had extremely heavy hands and Lin Shu had some difficulty breathing.
Did all these second generations have such terrible tempers?
–But there was still a difference. Ling Fengxiao’s temper wasn’t good, but it was still much cleaner in the end. It was simply “I’m not happy”, and didn’t have the sort of gloomy, disgusted, prideful air that was coming from this person’s eyes.
This look made Lin Shu feel like he had returned to his previous life, and it made him feel like vomiting.
The man smiled: “Why aren’t you talking now?”
Lin Shu was being strangled by his neck. It was already difficult to think, of course he was speechless.
The man continued: “You look like you would be a good person, but it’s a shame that you don’t have good eyes.”
Lin Shu was already about to pass away.
To an immortal, being pinched in the neck for a while was nothing.
But he wasn’t an immortal. At this time, his eyes were black, and his rolled his eyes involuntarily.
When his consciousness was about to be completely blurred, a voice suddenly came from the door. “Let him go.”
The timbre was very beautiful, slightly lower, and had quite an ethereal feel to it, but the speed of the speech seemed to be faster.
It was Ling Fengxiao’s voice.
The man’s hand stiffened, but didn’t move.
Ling Fengxiao walked over and said coldly: “Don’t you have ears?”
Lin Shu’s neck was quickly let go.
His blood was rising and he coughed wildly. He was about to faint.
Ling Fengxiao stretched out an arm to support him, and patted his back to regulate his Qi.
A scorching stream of true Qi flowed into Lin Shu’s body from the place where their skin touched. He felt his heart and lungs being protected. Even though he coughed until he felt like he was about to pass out, it was still relieving after all.
After a while, he finally came back to life.
After confirming that there was no danger, he was let go by Ling Fengxiao.
At this moment, all the people in the hall were quietly glancing over.
Ling Fengxiao: “Xiao Lingyang, you’ve grown.”
Lin Shu silently thought, oh, so it’s someone she knows.
He was guarded by the Big Miss’ back and felt incredibly safe, so he looked up at Xiao Lingyang.
Xiao Lingyang’s face twitched a few times, and the face with clear facial features became stiff and twisted.
His voice was a little rough: “… I did not know you were here.”
“When I’m not here, you can run rampantly and hurt people at will… I know.” Ling Fengxiao’s speech slowed down and returned to what she was like on normal days.
However, this speed of speech was actually the most worrying. Lin Shu had deep experience with this fact.
Xiao Lingyang’s face was much whiter as he said: “There was no seat here, so I…”
Ling Fengxiao only looked at him and did not speak.
Xiao Lingyang closed his mouth, and after a while, he squeezed out a few words: “I was wrong.”
“Where were you wrong?”
“I ran rampantly and hurt people at will.” Xiao Lingyang said.
A slap firmly fell on Xiao Lingyang’s cheek, and the brow-sharp face immediately turned red.
Xiao Lingyang’s eyes were full of hatred, disbelieving that he was being scolded.
“What class is this?” Ling Fengxiao asked.
Xiao Lingyang: “Introduction to Outer Dan.”
Ling Fengxiao said: “The method to calculate latitude and longitude, the method of governing the country, all the other courses and the other great country teachers waiting to teach you the emperor’s policies, and you run over here to take <<Introduction to Outer Dan>>?”
Xiao Lingyang hardened his skin and said: “Aren’t you also taking this class?”
Ling Fengxiao grabbed his shirt and was very close to him. Her voice lowered, until only Lin Shu could hear it.
He heard Ling Fengxiao saying, “What is my surname? What is your surname? Your Highness, please reflect on yourself!”
Xiao Lingyang’s eyes flickered, and he broke away from Ling Fengxiao to stand on the spot.
“Go,” Ling Fengxiao said coldly. “I will ask Mr. Meng to replace all your miscellaneous lessons at noon.”
Xiao Lingyang was very angry and said: “Ling Fengxiao! You’re pushing it too far!”
Ling Fengxiao said lightly: “Then you want me to replace all my lessons, and accompany you to read every day?”
Xiao Lingyang shut his mouth, glared at Ling Fengxiao fiercely, and walked away.
Lin Shu finally realised what it meant by everyone had someone above them. It turned out that the second generation was also split into levels, and someone who was so arrogant like Xiao Lingyang, when facing off against Ling Fengxiao, he couldn’t fight back and couldn’t argue back.
Ling Fengxiao, a person that stood at the top of the food chain.
Lin Shu, who was at the bottom of the food chain, felt uncomfortable and coughed again.
Ling Fengxiao turned to him and said: “Don’t move.”
Lin Shu was very obedient.
He saw Ling Fengxiao take out a jasper bottle, take a pill out, put it on his hand, and activate it with true Qi.
The fragrant smell of the spirit medicine came wafting out, and it was clear that it was a good healing spirit medicine. To use it on his own bruises seemed like overkill.
Ling Fengxiao walked closer. Seeing that posture, it was clear that she wanted to personally give him the medicine.
Lin Shu stiffened, and his body which refused all contact, stepped back uncontrollably.
Then, Ling Fengxiao held his shoulder, and he couldn’t move.
Lin Shu was frightened, watching as Ling Fengxiao’s hand pressed against his neck.
“What are you afraid of?” Ling Fengxiao felt Lin Shu’s unnaturalness and laughed: “I don’t eat people.”
As she spoke, she applied the medicine on the mark left on Lin Shu’s neck, and because the string around his neck was obstructing her movement, she pulled on it, and the small piece of jade on the string was also pulled out because of this excessive movement.
With fingers sliding around his neck, Lin Shu felt like he was going to die.
Fortunately, even though Xiao Lingyang had a heavy hand, but the size of a handprint was limited, after all, so Ling Fengxiao probably wouldn’t have to spread medicine for long.
But Ling Fengxiao, this person, who talked while spreading medicine, acted with incredibly slow movements.
“… Xiao Lingyang is my younger brother.” Ling Fengxiao said, “He doesn’t listen to people. Today I slapped him, and later I’ll get Baoqing to send you something. This will be our compensation for him, and let it count as this situation being settled. Later, don’t hold this against him.”
— It turned out to be using his injury as an excuse to discipline her brother.
He only replied with “en”. He didn’t explain why he had a conflict with Xiao Lingyang, and didn’t say anything at all.
Who Xiao Lingyang was, whether Ling Fengxiao compensated or not, whether this issue was settled or not, there really wasn’t any connection. According to the conversation between those two people, Xiao Lingyang’s main fault was not that he casually hurt people, but that he chose the wrong classes. And Lin Shu was just some insignificant person who somehow attracted trouble. Once this was over, he wouldn’t cause any more trouble.
To be honest, knowing him was a little bit uncomfortable.
Ling Fengxiao finally applied the medicine and stopped touching him.
This person still had a little bit of conscience, knowing to return the little piece of jade that fell out because of the rope.
Lin Shu looked at the ceiling and thought, please finish it quickly, leave quickly, I’m going to die.
Despite him thinking this way, Ling Fengxiao didn’t move.
Lin Shu looked forward.
Only to see Ling Fengxiao holding that piece of jade, staring frozen at it, and the expression of the whole person was very wrong.
