Chapter 15: Bragging?

Edited by: Mochiusagi 


It was another rimless shot.

That's three rimless 3-pointers in succession. It was already difficult enough for anyone to score three three-pointers in a row, even if they were open (no one defending). Not to mention all of them being rimless!

In the next few rounds, everyone present was even more stunned than before. 

Sun Yaoyang, who was beaten by Yin Xiuyan multiple times in a row, was very persistent and asked for the ball again and again. He wanted to play against Yin Xiu  one on one. However, no matter what his technique was, Yin Xiu stole the ball cleanly from him every time.

On top of that, Yin Xiu repeatedly shot three pointers above Sun Yaoyang's head. He did not miss a single one, and all of his shots were the same as the previous ones; rimless baskets!

In the face of Yin Xiu's performance, both Yin Xiu's teammates and his opponents were stunned to the point that their mouths could swallow an apple whole!

Sun Yaoyang, on the other hand, gnashed his teeth in humiliation. He was still unconvinced and unwilling in his heart. But the fact was, the 'contest' between him and Yin Xiu was one sided, in favor of the latter. 

The gap between them was painfully obvious and if that wasn't enough, it was constantly being beaten into him again and again. It was like an adult teaching a kindergarten child through the belt punishment.

Overall, Sun Yaoyang had the ball stolen by Yin Xiu four times now, and at the same time, Yin Xiu shot six three pointers over his head. None of the six three pointers missed.

In the words of the court, he was completely stomped on until there was no residue left.

In fact, Yin Xiu didn't have any interest in continuing this.

He played casually before teaching the arrogant a lesson, and now there's no point anymore. Therefore, Yin Xiu said, "Well, that's it. There's no point in continuing."

Hearing Yin Xiu say this, the people around were secretly relieved.

To tell the truth, Yin Xiu's strength was just too shocking for them. He stole the ball from Sun Yaoyang four times in a row, and even scored another six rimless three-pointers... This was simply playing against a max leveled character!

So indeed, how could they continue? No one likes to be beaten and no one there was a masochist, right?

Not to mention his opponents, even Yin Xiu's teammates felt that there was no point in playing like this anymore.

Yin Xiu's strength was not on the same level with them.

I'm afraid that he's a professional level player, even if he's not, he's near one!

"Brother, which major are you? How come I haven't seen you play before?"

"Yes, with your strength, it should have caused a sensation in the whole school!"

"Just now, with your defensive steals and three-pointers, it is fated that you'll be able to play in the professional leagues."

Yin Xiu only smiled faintly in response to their words. 

"Actually, I am not from your school."


They looked at Yin Xiu in surprise.

"Are you really not from our school?"

"Yes!" Yin Xiu nodded.

"No wonder I've never seen you play before. It turns out that you are not from our school!"

"By the way, which club are you from? Are you a professional player?" One of them suddenly asked and everyone couldn't help but also be curious. 

The others immediately followed the question up, "True. Brother, which club are you from?"

Yin Xiu smiled and shook his head. "No, I'm not a pro nor in any club."

"Well, you all continue to play. I'll go first..." Yin Xiu then walked over to the grass beside the field.


"Wow, your shooting is so accurate. But then again, don't you feel like you are bullying children by playing with them?"

Gu Shuyao, who was sitting on the grass, saw Yin Xiu coming and stood up. She asked playfully with a smile.

Gu Shuyao's words were not deliberately exaggerated. Although her understanding of Yin Xiu was only at the tip of the iceberg, at least, based on what she saw early in the morning, Yin Xiu must be a master of martial arts.

If such a person played basketball with ordinary people, how could the latter compete? After all, the gap in body, strength, control and so on was too big.

As long as the former is a little bit serious, it would definitely be a one-sided beating.

However, Yin Xiu's shooting skills just now were slightly beyond Gu Shuyao's expectations. Martial arts practitioners were much better than ordinary people in physique, explosive power and other aspects, but their long-distance shooting ability is not necessarily better.

It still depends on practice and feeling.

Even martial artists, if they don't usually practice, can't shoot much better than ordinary people.

Hearing Gu Shuyao's words, Yin Xiu pursed his lips and said, "I originally just wanted to have fun, but you should have seen what happened. That's why I taught them a lesson."

"Ha ha....."

Gu Shuyao smiled then asked, "Do you live near here? Why did you come to our school again? "

"Am I not welcome?"

"I didn't say that. It's just strange, you don't have to go to work?"

Yin Xiu shook his head.

"That's unnecessary."

"Er... What do you do then? Are you a boss of a shop? Or do you have a company?"

"That's not it. I am now, um... I should be regarded as unemployed, hehe! But after hearing what you said, I think it's really good to find a job and go to work every day. That should be more fulfilling."

"Really? You don't look like an unemployed person. If you are really unemployed, would you be this relaxed and dull?"

"I can't help it if you don't believe me..." Yin Xiu shrugged his shoulders.

Gu Shuyao looked at him, "Hmmm, originally, I thought that you are quite honest. But now, I can't even tell which you spoke of is true or false."

"By the way, I almost forgot to thank you."

"Thank me for what?" Yin Xiu was confused.

Gu Shuyao chuckled, "I tried the method you said this morning, and the effect was very good."

It suddenly dawned upon Yin Xiu. He smiled faintly before saying, "You are quite talented. Work hard."

Gu Shuyao frowned, then she stared at Yin Xiu, "Why do I feel like I'm talking to an old man. I seem to be several generations after you..."

Yin Xiu remained silent, he didn't expect this little girl to be so keen. However, it is indeed fact that she is several generations after him.

According to his age, her grandfather is his junior!

But he naturally can't say this to Gu Shuyao.

"You think too much."

"Am I?" The more Yin Xiu denied, the more Gu Shuyao felt that she was correct. She couldn't help but look suspiciously at Yin Xiu.

Yin Xiu then said as a change of topic, "When did you start practicing martial arts?"

"Seven years old. What about you? "

"Almost the same as you."

"What level are you on now? In the morning, I was scared by you when I saw you practice with the wooden stake so skillfully that even afterimages appeared.."

Gu Shuyao exclaimed.

"Well, I'll say that there should be no one stronger than me in this world." Yin Xiu half-truthfully answered.

"You braggart!"

Gu Shuyao's mouth gapped like a fish and gave Yin Xiu a supercilious look, "Just look at how old are you (she's saying he's young) and you dare say that there is no other person stronger than you in this world? Do you think I'm stupid to believe in that?"

"I have seen a few people like you that don’t know how to be modest. Even if you are really good, there are some people in the world who are better than you. As the saying goes, ‘There is always a taller mountain.’ Your talent may be high but you are still young. How can you be better than the older generation of masters who have practiced for decades?"


Yin Xiu smiled but didn't defend himself. Because there's no need...
