Half an hour later.
Shen Hui, Liang Bowen, Chen Yuan, and some of the students from Class A rushed to the medical office.
“Sister Nian, are you alright!”
“Qiao Nian, are you ok?”
Everyone came in and saw the scene.
The doctor was wrapping up her wound. They could see her pale arm wrapped with a layer of bandage, and they could also see some blood seeping through the dressing.
Qiao Nian looked alright, except she was a little pale from the loss of blood. However, she looked calm. It was as though she wasn’t in pain.
In tears, Shen Qingqing covered her face in guilt as she apologized. “Nian Nian, I’m sorry, I’m so sorry. I didn’t know that would happen.”
Shen Hui breathed a sigh of relief after seeing that they were alright. She patted Qiao Nian and asked, “Are you alright?”
“It’s just an abrasion, nothing else,” she replied as she lifted her hand to show that it wasn’t broken.
Liang Bowen came over to stop Shen Qingqing from crying. He consoled her gently. “Why are you crying, it’s so ugly. Can’t you see that Sister Nian is fine?”
Shen Qingqing was so guilty that she didn’t dare to look anyone in the eye. “It’s all my fault.”
If she didn’t believe that note and wanted to see who wrote it, Qiao Nian wouldn’t be hurt.
Shen Qingqing was so guilty that she could only look down. Tears flowed down her cheeks.
Liang Bowen wiped her tears away. Not wanting to argue with her, he consoled her. “It’s alright now, stop crying. Your crying is annoying Sister Nian.
“Do you want her to comfort you with her injured arm?
“I, I don’t.”
Of course, she didn’t. Shen Qingqing wiped her tears and tried to stop crying. This caused her face to flush up. She looked like a bunny with her swollen eyes as she stood there, not knowing what to do.
Chen Yuan was calm through all this. He asked Shen Hui after knowing that Qiao Nian was fine, “Teacher Shen, how is it possible for the steel rods to fall so suddenly?”
“Erm…” Shen Hui rushed over after knowing that someone got injured. As she was so concerned with the safety of her students, she didn’t think of this. It was only after what Chen Yuan said that that she realized.
It was true. The steel rods were there for a long time already, it was weird for them to suddenly fall over.
Because of this accident, Principal Yu and the Dean of Teaching also came over.
Some curious students came over as well.
“Is Qiao Nian alright?” Principal Yu asked the doctor nervously.
He called Ye Wangchuan before he came. Due to her background, he had to inform her parents and guardians if something happened to her.
He turned and asked the Dean of Teaching after making sure that she was alright. “What happened?”
The Dean of Teaching rubbed his forehead as he explained. “It should have been an accident. It rained a couple of days ago and the steel rods fell over. The railings must have gotten weak from the years of rust and gave way. Hence, this caused the steel rods to fall down.”
“So, this is just an accident?” Principal Yu questioned, still feeling uneasy.
Shen Hui took note of what Chen Yuan said just now and continued, “Mr. Principal, should we investigate it? I feel that something is amiss.”
Qiao Chen and Zhao Jingwei were there as well. When Zhao Jingwei heard what Shen Hui said, her face turned pale. She took a step back and accidentally knocked into Qiao Chen. She immediately apologized to her. “Oh, I’m so sorry. Are you alright?”
