On the way back to the house, what he was thinking about was his dream.
He would ask the old woman that way before, precisely because of an event that happened in his dream. He actually met this old woman, but because he didn't pay attention at the time, and the other party was described vaguely, he just pushed it out of his mind. It wasn't until he got close this time that he remembered who this person was.
In that dream, a student died in Qinghe Academy. At that time, it caused a lot of panic in the school, but it was suppressed by the masters and the owner, and the students were afraid to speak.
The student who died was called Sun Hei, not Sun He.
The name Sun He does not exist in Xue TingRang's memory. And this incident did not happen in that dream. It may have happened but he didn't know it, because in that dream, he was excluded, always alone and never interacting with others.
But it was precisely these trivial things that were brought together, and Xue TingRang felt that there must be something strange in it.
He couldn't tell the specific details for the time being, but he smelled a scent of conspiracy.
After returning to the hall, Mao Badou and the others gathered around and asked what the master of the pavilion told him, if the master praised him.
Xue TingRang touched his nose. He was not praised, but was rather scolded and labeled a villain. However, he would definitely not talk about this kind of thing, but said that he had discovered something and needed a few people's help.
Xue TingRang would not mention dreams. He just said that he had met the old woman, and by chance he knew that her grandson was not Sun He, but Sun Hei.
These two characters have the same sound, but the characters are different.
Therefore, as soon as Xue TingRang said this, the three of them also thought it was suspicious. In particular, Mao Badou immediately became excited.
"I smell a conspiracy!"
After the four people looked at each other, Chen Jian asked, "What methods do you have, TingRang?"
"I was able to get some information out of the old woman. She once said that her grandson’s name was given by the most educated person in their village. For this plan, we only have to find out where that person is. As for the others, we should just leave it for now."
"Okay. It's just how should we find them? Who knows where this family is from in these ten miles and eight townships."
"Even if it’s hard, we have to try."
"Or, let's tell the owner?" Li Datian said.
Mao Badou immediately said: "Why should we tell the owner? This is the time for us to turn the tide. If this is done, we will be the great saviors of the academy in the future. Maybe the master will appreciate us and accept us as disciples. What? I heard people say that the master never accepts disciples. Yu Ziyou and the others are scrambling to become disciples."
Speaking of this, one naturally thinks of Yu Ziyou and others who are now behind bars.
This time the literary fight was led by Yu Ziyou. Only 20 students in Qingyuan entered Class A, and now more than half of them are in jail. Both Yu Ziyou and Wang Qi were on this list, but Hu Lianshen escaped because of diarrhea that day.
Let’s not mention that yet. Since it was decided, the four of them discussed how to get out of the school.
Because of the panic in the past few days, several students in the academy have already returned home because they were afraid of being implicated.
These people are naturally despised by the students who stay in the academy and feel that they are greedy for life and fear death. Not to mention these, this gave Xue TingRang and others a chance to go out smoothly. Because the four of them also left, it caused the remaining students to spurn, so I won't describe them one by one here.
Lin Miao received the news, smiled lonely, and was immediately relieved.
Xue Tingwan's move was an exact response to what he said before, that the villain has the instinct to seek advantages and avoid disadvantages. Well, the two of them seemed not to have the fate of being master and apprentice.
The four of them left the academy without knowing where they were going.
Walking in the street, a mule cart suddenly stopped in front of them.
"Ting'er, why are you here? The academy is closed today?"
It was Zhao’er.
Gao Sheng drove the mule cart while she was sitting on the side wearing a man's shirt. After the cart stopped, she jumped down and stopped in front of the four.
Although Zhao'er said so, her eyes were solemn, and she clearly suspected that the four of them had sneaked out.
"Ah, sister..." It was Mao Badou.
He scratched his head and didn't know what to call her. Don’t look at how he plays around with TingRang on a regular basis. When he really met her, he didn't dare to call that old tiger's fiancee “sister-in-law”. He was not only afraid of being beaten to death by Zhaoer, but also afraid of being killed by Xue TingRang’s cold stare.
He had a good start, and Li Datian and Chen Jian also honestly called Zhaoer Jie. Especially Li Datian, he didn't even pay attention to the fact that he is older than Zhaoer. 1
This greeting of calling her sister made Zhao'er smile, and also made Xue TingRang’s face turn black.
He didn't like it but kept it in and said to Zhaoer: "Don't think too much about it. We didn't come out for fun, but something happened."
"What's the matter?" Zhao'er asked, and then said: "Get in the cart and talk, where are you going, I will send you over."
Regardless of the fact that there is nothing wrong with this statement, it is just a smooth sentence, but Xue TingRang heard a trace of surveillance. This is the case with Zhao'er. Even if there is any dissatisfaction with his words and deeds in the heart, if it is not important and she will not point it out straightforwardly. Most of the time, she used roundabout methods.
In this case, Xue TingRang couldn't hide it, so he explained what happened in the academy and his discovery.
"You are really, this kind of thing is naturally the more people who help, the better, yet you are deliberately hiding it." Zhao'er laughed, and did not say a childish sentence.
"It’s just I don’t want this matter to reach the ears of others. I assume there may be spies in the academy." Xue TingRang said.
- Jie means older sister while Mei means younger sister. Therefore, Li Datian should call her Zhao’er Mei Mei since he is older than her ↑
