Arcadia Chronicles: The Story Of Lien Hua Chapter 16
Remaining alone in the classroom, Lien Hua heard something, and as she looked down, she heard a constant noise on the desk, 'tick, tick'.
Raising her hands to her cheeks, she felt them wet. Lien Hua was shocked, she was crying, 'Ahah, how stupid i was, for my own selfishness, i angered the only people i cared about' thought Lien Hua as she looked down feeling a little depressed.
Clearing her throat, Lien Hua got up from where she was sitting and walked towards the door, noticing something behind the latter. It was Ling Tianni watching her with mocking eyes.
Looking at him, Lien Hua could only comment laughing.
''Do you really enjoy seeing something like that? Well then i will tell you why it happened. My friends got angry with me because i tried to protect you from them. You're shocked, right? It's just people like you, who think that because they're sad about the trauma they've suffered, that they feel compelled to dump it on others and be the victims. That's not good. You should be the one who has to try harder than everybody to show the people who insulted you, that you're better than them, and that insulting someone for their talent will never give them satisfaction''.
Turning her back after this outburst against him, she did not wait for him to open his mouth, and Lien Hua resumed her journey to home.
Meanwhile Ling Tianni, after having suffered an attack from Lien Hua's mouth, began to reflect 'Did i become like them? Like those people who judged me and took pleasure in seeing me suffer? No, that's not true...' Looking back at the girl, Ling Tianni did not know what answer to give. His mind was entirely in conflict, giving him an atrocious headache.
Leaning over himself, holding his head in his hands, Ling Tianni screamed in his head: 'Enough, please just enough! I didn't do anything wrong it's all their fault, only their, it was they who judged me and created this hell, but at the same time Lien Hua is right. N-no it's not true! .
It was just when it was at its weakest and fragile moment that from the forest that surrounded the square a dart invisible to human eyes and the developed senses of the Spiritual Masters around the mountain, stuck itself behind Ling Tianni's neck.
Feeling something had stung him, Ling Tianni came out of his inner monologue and scratched behind his neck. However, when he felt more times with his hand that there was nothing attached, he did not give it more attention and wondered what he was thinking before. He just felt a bit of a headache.
Seeing that there was no one around, Ling Tianni confused about what happened marched down from the mountain and walked to his house, not noticing anything strange.
Meanwhile, Lien Hua just returned home. She felt better after this outburst against Ling Tianni, but at the same time did not feel ready to go and talk to her two friends and thought to herself: 'Tomorrow i will do it, for now, i want to train my body a little. Sigh...'.
So undressing and putting on some lighter clothes and carrying his washed towel, Lien Hua approached the French window and opened it.
In front of her the same garden of yesterday appeared. However, she could notice only now how all the vegetation was more vital, more limpid and generally more active. Lien Hua turned her head towards the tree, were she could notice how its bark was browner and the leaves much greener and brighter.
Lien Hua was a little suspicious, she approached the oak tree, she touched it, and without even concentrating, Lien Hua could feel that the connection she had yesterday with the oak tree was much stronger today.
Shocked, Lien Hua started thinking, 'It's really weird, why it is different from yesterday? Yesterday I just trained here, I didn't try to absorb spiritual energy here, so how did this tree and its nature absorb so much of it? '.
Walking around the tree, Lien Hua could see how the connection with it had become stronger. She could now feel the spiritual energy inside it, noticing that it had grown almost twice as much as yesterday and she thought of one thing, 'Did it did that? But it is impossible, but at the same time it is possible. But better not jump to conclusions, I will try to train again today around this tree and then i can answer this wonder. '
Lien Hua did not immediately attempt to jump to conclusions as a modern earth woman, where Galileo Galilei's scientific method was applied everywhere.
Lien Hua standing in front of the tree much more alive than yesterday, she began to train. First of all, Lien Hua did some stretching to prepare her muscles for today's intensive training.
Then Lien Hua decided to always start with a simple race, but this time she already started with a medium-high speed, which surprisingly managed to maintain yesterday's time. Running for a few more minutes, until she was satisfied, Lien Hua was quite surprised by how much she had improved in such a short time.
She didn't even sweat! Lien Hua was thrilled with this, she did not like to be covered in sweat. However, even if she didn't feel tired, she sat down and took a little break, drank some water and looked at the sky while massaging her legs.
Counting in her mind 5 minutes, Lien Hua got up and stretched: 'Ahhh, how nice, it really took, I already feel better'. Thinking of Lin Yue and Chen Huang, she sighed, but did not stop too much and resumed her yesterday's routine.
Meanwhile, Lin Yue and Chen Huang had gathered at Huang's home.
Looking into each other eyes, Lin Yue sighed and began to speak first: ''It was the first time i answered Lien Hua like that, i hope it wasn't too much...'.
Chen Huang, who was also a little preoccupied, replied: ''I don't think it was too much, in the end we were right, i can't understand why Lien Hua kept treating this situation as if it were a joke... ''
With a sigh, Lin Yue got up from the table and walked towards the window and while she looked out of it she began talking with thoughtfulness: ''I don't know... It is as if she continues to forgive what Ling Tianni continues to do to her.''
Turning to Chen Huang, who was watching her, she started talking again: ''Do you remember when we were little and we fought, we hurt her unintentionally, but she didn't even cry and got up and casually responded with a 'don't worry'.
As if a light bulb had lit in his head, Chen Huang also spoke: ''It is just as if everything that people around her do, especially children, she takes it lightly, not giving it too much weight, but why she keeps doing this? '.
Lin Yue turned towards the boy as she was surprised by his deep reflection and immediately interrupted him: ''Chen Huang, these are things that she has to tell us. we can not force Lien Hua to tell us. However, we left her alone, that's our mistake, but it's too late now, tomorrow we'll go to apologize'.
Chen Huang resumed his speech with a nod: ''Yes you're right, i think it was too much exaggerated, i only hope she doesn't blame us for this''.
Like that, they resumed eating their noodles with beef and boiled egg while sitting in thoughtful silence. They th. Withthat even if they were together, they felt like something was missing.
Lien Hua, meanwhile, had already finished her training sets, noticing a very exponential growth. The few sit-ups and push-ups of yesterday, today she had managed to make almost twice as many, but squats were more than doubled.
The girl who was already in her tub thought of this 'Absurd, simply absurd, spiritual energy is a beautiful phenomenon. Only a few days since ago i was a mortal, and now i can already do things i could not even imagine before coming here'.
Lien Hua while resting in her tub was waiting for a new day to come forward to see how much she had improved, but of course, everything had its time and the girl did not want to burn herself with too much training.
Getting up from the tub and getting something to dry herself, Lien Hua thought of her two friends and became a bit sad. She knew that they would get over this dire situation, but it was always awful thinking about it. Nevertheless, after preparing something to eat, Lien Hua sat in the middle of the room with her legs crossed, and, after she inhaled a deep breath, she entered a state of trance.
Looking inside her body, Lien Hua noticed the percentage of spiritual energy absorbed in her muscles today it was higher than yesterday's and continued to enter at a higher speed than the day before. Satisfied, Lien Hua relaxed even more and cultivated all night long.
Waking up the next day, Lin Yue, Chen Huang and Lien Hua walked separately to their classroom, without meeting each other. Moreover, as they approached it, they saw how many disciples there were, and as they reached the classroom as the Sect Elder said yesterday, they met a very ferocious-looking man in front of the classroom.
The man was about two meters tall with a light sleeveless uniform that made his powerful and muscular arms sticks out. His skin was dark, and his short brown hair was tied in a chignon behind his head, leaving a few strands of loose hair in front of his face, his severe eyes at the moment were scrutinizing the disciples who had gathered before him.
