However, Cai Gang didn’t notice it. He was reminded of something and said to the teachers, “There’s something that I forgot to mention. Didn’t a child almost drowned? One of the residents wrote a commendation letter that a student from First High School rescued the child. That was Qiao Nian as well.
“When that was happening, other students from First High School were there as well. However, they were afraid and didn’t take any action. Qiao Nian was the only one that jumped into the water to help…”
Shen Qiongzhi and Qiao Chen didn’t know what to say. They were overwhelmed with shame.
They kept silent when they saw the Dean of Teaching shaking hands with Cai Gang before sending them out.
At the teachers’ office.
Cai Gang left as quickly as he came.
However, the office vibe changed.
Shen Qiongzhi and Qiao Chen were sitting uneasily. Meanwhile, the teachers along with the Dean of Teaching that supported Qiao Nian were at ease.
The Dean of Teaching knew what was about to happen. He didn’t mention anything about what happened and spoke gently to Qiao Nian. “It’s alright now. Head back to class.”
“Alright,” Qiao Nian replied. She then took her stuff and headed off. She didn’t pause when she walked past Shen Qiongzhi.
The Dean of Teaching saw that she left and said, “Madam Qiao, I think that you should have a complete understanding of what happened already. As for the request to remove Qiao Nian from this school, we aren’t going to accept it. Do you understand?”
Shen Qiongzhi gripped her bag and felt humiliated.
She had never been humiliated like this ever since she rose to her current status. However, this shame was her own doing!
Hence, she couldn’t say anything about it.
Qiao Nian was on the way back to class.
When she was in the corridor.
Qiao Chen called out to her from behind.
Qiao Nian frowned, impatient. She stopped, turned, and asked coldly, “What’s the matter?”
Could you believe her attitude!
Qiao Chen hid her unhappiness and looked around. It was break time between class, and other students were heading out of the classroom to take a breather. Some of them looked in their direction.
She looked down, bit her lip, and then spoke softly. “Sister, you shouldn’t have been so stubborn… You should have explained everything to us when we misunderstood what happened. If you had explained to us, mom… I mean my mom wouldn’t have been humiliated.
“Aunt Fu has relatives in the education ministry. If you had offended her, you could never continue your studies in Rao City… You wanted to study in Rao City instead of Luohe County to change your family’s situation, so you… shouldn’t be so rash in the future.”
Qiao Nian listened until she ended her speech. She then stared at her and asked, “Are you done?”
Qiao Chen clenched her fist as her face turned pale. She nodded and replied, “Yes, I’m done.”
“Stop following me around if you’re done, you’re a nuisance!”
It was getting on her nerves!
Qiao Nian turned around after speaking and left her behind.
This is how you humiliate people!
When others come up to you to say a bunch of things, you shouldn’t take any of it to heart and consider it all nonsense to you!
Qiao Chen frowned. She clenched her fists so hard that they almost bled. She was so angry that her eyes turned red.
What was Qiao Nian so proud of? She was just complimented by the police for helping people. It was foolish of her to offend the Fu Family because of this. She would be sent back to Luohe County for this in the future.
The news that a pretty girl was transferred to Class A was spread throughout the entire First High School yesterday. It was said that the school belle in Class A was especially pretty, so everyone wanted to see who was prettier between the two!
Hence, people looked in their direction when they stood together.
