Chapter 136: Don’t Have Enough Money To Bail You Out

Lu Yumo did not want to resort to such an extreme measure. He felt that whenever something happened to Fu Zhi, his mother would turn into an entirely different person.

Right now, he could only do his best to calm his mother down. He said, “There is the following statement in the Buddhist scriptures: Lay down your slaughtering knife and become a Buddha. Mom, you have to stay calm!”

Well, Xu Wei was unable to lay down her slaughtering knife, at least not for now. She could not fathom why these people had to do this to Fu Zhi. She was filled with so much rage that her body was trembling nonstop. “Nonsense. This is pure bullsh*t! Your father donated the building to the school because he wanted the students to study in a better environment, and there are tons of people who bribe their way into No. 1 High School every year, so why must they single Zhizhi out? Besides, what proof do they have to claim that Zhizhi didn’t earn those glorious moments through her own effort, huh? Why can’t a student from a small town be outstanding? Must Zhizhi be an academically underperforming student like you? How absurd!”

As he looked at the machete in his mother’s hand, Lu Yumo dared not say no at the moment. He shook his head vigorously and said, “Yes, yes, yes, you’re right! I’m a loser. Zhizhi is the best girl in the world, and she is totally different from me.”

As he was talking, he saw Lu Jingqing emerge from his study with a deep frown etched on his face. His eyes instantly lit up as he hastily shouted, “Dad, do something! Mom’s trying to kill someone!”

Lu Jingqing then said, “Weiwei, put down the machete. It’ll leave a bad impression if anyone sees you holding it.”

Lu Yumo nodded profusely. Just as he was about to say that he wanted to invite his father into his two WeChat groups, he saw his father pull out a dagger from his study. Then, his father approached him with the dagger in his hand and said, “You’re, after all, a descendant of the Lu Family, so what you do and what you say are closely related to our image. Your mother’s machete is a little rusty, so it doesn’t conform to your image. This dagger is new. Take it and go find the person who started all this to…”

He paused for a moment and looked Lu Yumo in the eyes before adding, “Get rid of him.”

Lu Yumo was so speechless that he did not know what to say.

It seemed to him that there was only one thing he could do now. The things the post had mentioned in the forum were indeed horrible. The Lu Family had given him the green light, not to mention that his parents also had the power to help him get to the culprit through the web. Now that everything was in place, how could he still run away from his responsibility? As her brother, how was he supposed to face her in the future if he did not stand up for her when someone was bullying her?

With those thoughts in mind, Lu Yumo took the dagger from his father’s hand and marched away valiantly with his eyes brimming with determination.

After he went back to his room, Xu Wei turned to Lu Jingqing and said worriedly, “I just want him to teach the kids that scolded Zhizhi a lesson. He won’t really go and kill them, right?”

Xu Wei covered her wallet, which was getting thinner and thinner every day. She did not have enough money to bail her eldest son out of jail!

“Don’t worry about him. He knows what he should do. Come on, the meal is ready. Let’s call Zhizhi down to eat.”

Fu Zhi received a voice message from He Ming. He was inviting her to a meal. However, since her tailbone had not recovered yet and she was tired, she turned down his invitation.

“I’m planning to take part in an international competition with this AI intelligence, and I’m also going to apply for a patent.” He Ming sent another voice message to Fu Zhi. “I need roughly a month to analyze the ideas that you gave me after I return to the capital. Do you have anything else to tell me?”

“Farewell, Xiao He,” Fu Zhi replied flatly, giving He Ming the impression that she was offering incense to him at his funeral.

However, before He Ming could say anything, Su Xing video-called her on her phone.

Fu Zhi answered the call immediately, and Su Xing felt as if someone had stabbed her in her heart when she saw Fu Zhi’s bloodshot eyes. “Did you see the post already?”

Without giving Fu Zhi a chance to say anything, she hastily added, “Don’t cry, Zhizhi. Nothing good could come out of their mouths. They’re just making malicious speculations about you!”

Fu Zhi did not know what Su Xing was talking about. She tried to climb out of bed, but the pain that shot up her tailbone did not allow her to do so. She clicked her tongue in frustration, and Su Xing thought she was sad. After all, not many people could remain calm when they became the target of cyberbullying.

Su Xing took another look at the post. She could not understand why those people would say so many mean things about Fu Zhi. She was such a nice person!

Su Xing clenched her fists, as she felt she had to do something.

‘I have to do something! I must fight back on Zhizhi’s behalf! I have to protect her!’

Then, Fu Zhi, who was still in a befuddled state, saw a strange light sparkling in her deskmate’s eyes. She picked a black keyboard out of nowhere and began tapping away, filling her room with a rapid succession of tapping sounds.

Three minutes later, Su Xing pressed her lips firmly. She looked just like a rooster that had just lost a fight. Her eyes were red like a rabbit’s as she sobbed. “Zhizhi, help me. There are too many of them. I can’t beat them…”

Fu Zhi was speechless.
