    Janitor Zhang takes out a cigarette and lights it, taking a drag coolly. “Get back up, kid. If that’s all you have, you can forget about protecting the son of Prime Minister Li.”

    Xu Jing glares at him, soaked by the rain, his face a mess of bruises.

    ***

    The Minamoto biker gang rides through the streets, vengeance in their eyes. Their leader, a blind biker, snarls. “The Central Plains High School will pay for putting our aniki in the hospital!”

    ***

    “The Eight Sects are the strongest clubs in this school, and the foundation of power for the student council.” The girl grins mischieviously. “I am not sure what you think the Chemistry Club can do for you, my cute little kouhai... but there will be a price.”

    ***

    A bearded man with glasses and a suit, sitting in front of the principal who is dressed in traditional attire. “Headmaster Wang, this will be the year my Fire Mountain High School claims the final victory at the Inter-High Martial Arts Tournament!” boasts the man.

    “Oh ho ho, you seem confident, Headmaster Ahura.”

    “Of course! We have a secret weapon this year… be prepared to eat dirt.” The room trembles because of their qi.

    ***

    Xu Jing is cornered in an alley by a gang in animal masks. He seems to be relishing the challenge. The gang parts to allow their leader through. It is a girl. They went to the same middle school together. There was some history between them. His eyes widen.

    “You…”

    ***

    An announcement rings out across the school courtyard, through the public announcement system: “All students, this is your Student Council President speaking. Laxatives have been released into the school’s water tank again. Please refrain from drinking anything until we solve this problem. Again.”

    After finishing the announcement, the Student Council President Bai Jiutian flicks off the microphone, unamused. She opens a bottle of mineral water and gulps it down. There are cartons of water bottles behind her.

    ***

    A mad old man runs through the school grounds naked and laughing, a fistful of panties in hand.

    DENSETSU THE ANIMU. Coming Spring 2014.

    Yeah, like they could kick us out. A lone Jing could humiliate every royal guard and massacre their whole army in the city, I don't even want to know what Jing together with the Amesha Spentas and Yunzi could do.

    Actually when we get back, I propose we take over the country.

    Sorry man, as a leader responsible for over ten thousand lives, this:

    Is the opposite of where I want to go. I'm here to make allies for the future, not piss off the whole jianghu for lulz. You know the deal, growing with our responsibilities and shit. And yeah, I am absolutely of the opinion that C1 is not worth it.

    And yet you give me flak for my Bai hate'n. :/

    Well, either B2 or C1 is going to be a fun read I suppose, so I guess I'm glad it's between these two.

    edit:
    Which gets us what for certain? She could just end up manipulated by Bai and then Huashan becomes even stronger.

    It can't happen if Song Lingshu writes it. She's hot-blooded and hot-tempered at times, but not the type to be all mocking and sarcastic in a letter. That's more of Jing's territory.

    If the goal of B2 is not to leave evidence of our involvement, then I don't see why we should.

    Then again, after we leave, there is always BJ to spin the story as he wants.

    treave, I suppose Lingshu will be traveling with us, then? There are no secure places to leave her until this dies down, I suppose.

    By the way, if we get Lingshu, we will be just 1 wife short of being able to execute Guihe Formation.
    Can it be done once we find Yunzi? ;)

    Who said that was the goal? B2 is more effective rep-wise becaue it only directly harms Mao.

    Well, it does not really hurt Mao if Lingshu was kidnapped and forced to write a letter instead of running away herself.

    Most likely. You can't exactly have her hide out at Yao's cottage, after all.

    Actually, she snuck into the wedding for free food.

    About that. When will be a good time to talk to her about what happened?

    Since she will be traveling with Cao'er and all. I guess we'll need Yifang's help for this one.

    I don't get why BJ would cooperate in B.

    If he's here as a manipulative ass that wants to break mao's growth of power then he's exiling the only person who can stop that.

    If he's here because love he's sending his girl off with womanizer Jing. At least Miss Song was only marrying Mao because of duty.

    Good point, but it all depends on how it's delivered. If, for example, the Abbess were to read it and say that Song instructed her to inform them of her reasons for leaving, it would probably be accepted as truth.

    Besides, if she's seen traveling with us, it will hardly be believed that she was kidnapped.

    This is a joke, right? This has to be a joke.

    No, Song casting doubt on Mao's legitimacy puts a stop to his rapid expansion. He'll have to deal with a bit of infighting, and her words can be used by others against him.

    Also, he is the one that suggested it, so...

    It'll be addressed at a later time, just like Yifang's family issue with Cao'er.

    Why would there be infighting? Mao already controls the sect and the person to rally behind of for infighting is gone.

    he also says he thinks running away is not the correct idea right before. Meaning he thinks it's wrong and expects Jing to do something wrong.

    Of course, Jing can do things BJ can't be caught dead doing. That's the advantage of being unorthodox, but he still wants Uncle Mao out of power and Lingshu's refusal to marry him and rebuffing him with a letter on how he's fucking up the sect will give his opponents all the openings they need.

    In B Jing doesn't take blame for it either it'll be all on Miss Song herself.

    Mao's power growth will be temporarely halted at best. Depending on how good or bad the letter thing turns out.

    Of course it's on Miss Song, she's the one calling the whole thing off! :lol: The thing is, she's calling it off because Mao isn't good fpr her father's sect and she wants her heritage out of his grubby hands, that's all there is to it.

    Wether or not she succeeds will be determined in the future. B2 gives her an opening.

    A2 would give her a better opening. instead of running from her problems she would stand up and face them, like you would expect from a good orthodox leader.
