Even Shen Qingqing herself had not expected that. She had been listening to them talk about a brand by the name of Seven and an S person, but she had no idea what they were exactly.
But after hearing so much, she did have a faint concept of what they were referring to.
It was simply that this brand’s items were expensive, and that her bracelet was more valuable than the one Qiao Chen had lost.
She felt more confident already.
Even her posture was more upright now.
Qiao Nian didn’t want to waste more time on Qiao Chen. She simply walked over and said to the pale girl, “Qiao Chen, apologize.”
Qiao Chen’s head snapped up. She bit her lip as her eyes flickered.
Had she not already apologized?
What was Qiao Nian saying!
As if having read her mind, Qiao Nian tipped her head up slightly coldly and ferociously. She spoke with a suave aura, “Your apology from just now doesn’t count.
“Has nobody taught you how to apologize before?
“You didn’t even say the word ‘sorry’ the entire time and was even insinuating that Shen Qingqing was wearing an imitation. Now that we’ve proven the authenticity of Shen Qingqing’s bracelet, and that you were too blind to tell real from fake goods, isn’t it about time you apologized sincerely?”
Qiao Chen clenched her fists as her lashes trembled. She was trying to save her last ounce of dignity. “I didn’t say she was wearing an imitation.”
This was exactly what Qiao Nian detested about her. She always beat about the bush and evaded responsibility whenever things happened.
Qiao Nian frowned in frustration. “You didn’t say it explicitly, but everyone here knows what you were getting at.
“Apologize to Shen Qingqing.
“Otherwise, we’ll blow this up.”
She wasn’t loud, and she actually looked pretty calm besides being impatient.
But her presence was somewhat intimidating to everyone there.
Even Liang Bowen was looking at her and thinking: Damn, what’s with Sister Nian? She usually looks so lazy and casual, but she’s oddly suave today.
Chen Yuan had seen this other side of Qiao Nian before and hence wasn’t too surprised. He couldn’t stand the way Qiao Chen was acting, either. He snapped, “First High School isn’t founded by your Qiao family, so stop acting this way when you’re not at home. Not everyone here is your mom. We can’t stand the way you act here!”
Chen Yuan insulted Qiao Chen directly.
He didn’t save her any face.
Qiao Chen’s face reddened instantly as humiliation took over her eyes.
Forget about Qiao Nian. This Chen Yuan was just the son of a nanny her family had employed before. Who was he to speak to her this way!
Qiao Nian didn’t give her a chance to act up. She simply said in a beautifully succinct manner, “Apologize!”
She hadn’t managed to find her lost bracelet, and Shen Qingqing’s Seven bracelet happened to be real.
Qiao Chen was really at her wits’ end. Unwilling as she was, she could only give in.
She swallowed the humiliation and said to Shen Qingqing quietly, “I’m sorry, I was mistaken about you.”
After apologizing, Qiao Chen looked up again. This time, her eyes were red.
It was as if she’d been misunderstood by them. She turned to look at Qiao Nian with anger and embarrassment in her eyes. “Can I leave now?”
Qiao Nian’s posture was casual, a stark contrast to Qiao Chen’s. She replied, “I’m not in your way, you don’t have to report to me if you’re leaving.”
Qiao Chen’s face darkened.
That’s right, why did she have to report to Qiao Nian? It was as if she dared not leave unless Qiao Nian gave her permission.
She gritted her teeth and left.
With that, the rest of the Class B students took their leave too.
