Roughly 10 minutes after Fu Zhi left the classroom, something happened in the meeting room.
Lu Yubai and Zhou Zihuai were looking at Gu Yan with frowns on their faces.
“I can’t control what my fans want to do,” Gu Yan said as she played with her phone. “Besides, Fu Zhi’s fans started it. If they hadn’t started it, none of this would have happened. Also, Fu Zhi didn’t do anything to stop her fans, so if I ask my fans to stop attacking her, they will get disappointed in me and might not like me anymore.”
“Fu Zhi is taciturn and doesn’t pay much attention to the outside world,” Zhou Zihuai chimed in.
“I don’t think so. She’s clever,” Gu Yan sneered. “It was Fu Zhi who asked you to come and beg me, right? She just aptly expressed her grievance, and you knights are so worried about her? I can’t believe how dumb you guys are.”
She paused for a second before adding, “Well, at least she’s pretty good at playing the damsel in distress. It’s an old-school method, but it works like a charm for her.”
“Don’t you dare slander her with your speculations!” Lu Yubai hissed.
He could understand why Gu Yan refused to come forward and explain the situation, but after everything Gu Yan had said, the very last bit of good impression Lu Yubai had of her had disappeared into the ether.
Even though he knew Gu Yan was very capable, Fu Zhi was his weakness.
Zhou Zihuai and Lu Yubai’s intention to come here was clear. No matter what, they wanted her to explain the situation to the public and clear Fu Zhi’s name.
‘Have they forgotten that I was the one who tutored them for the past week no matter how busy I was?’
Gu Yan was disappointed in them. At the same time, she had to admit that Fu Zhi was very good at manipulating people’s emotions.
Just as they were about to leave, Xu Wenhao remembered something and said, “Hold on a second!”
He did not understand why Zhou Zihuai and Lu Yubai had chosen to stand on Fu Zhi’s side when it was very apparent that Gu Yan was the one who could help them in the future. Mustering up his courage, he said, “Since you’re on Fu Zhi’s side, Brother Lu, don’t you think you should return the thing that you got from Gu Yan?”
Leaning against the back of the chair, Gu Yan looked indifferently at Lu Yubai as if she was daring him to delete Sheng Hua from his WeChat.
However, a second later, Lu Yubai opened his WeChat and removed Sheng Hua from his contacts.
Gu Yan’s face turned dark.
After doing that, Lu Yubai tugged at Zhou Zihuai and both of them left.
The moment they were outside the meeting room, Xu Wenhao and Sun Tian’s ingratiating voices, as well as Gu Yan’s patronizing and condescending voice, wafted into their ears.
“I’m not going to continue my studies at Tsinghua University, so I’ll tell Master Sheng Hua to give the direct admission spot that he gave me to Xu Wenhao. As for Sun Tian, I will introduce you to him during the exchange meeting. Besides, I have some first-hand information about the competition that I can share with you guys…”
It seemed as if Gu Yan was mocking them and showing them this was the consequence of siding with Fu Zhi and going against her.
Zhou Zihuai let out a sigh. He patted Lu Yubai’s shoulder and asked, “Do you want to go for a walk by the garden before going back to class?”
Lu Yubai nodded. After all, he needed some air to calm down.
It was an early self-study session, so there were no students on the walkway. This place was also the favorite spot of couples who wanted to see each other.
Lu Yubai planned to take a walk around the walkway to calm down before going to look for Fu Zhi. He had decided to hire someone to delete those hot topics from Weibo in secret.
However, while they were heading back, both he and Zhou Zihuai saw something and froze.
Sheng Hua was standing not far away from them. He was wearing casual clothes today, and he was talking to a girl. “Master, it was raining yesterday, and I asked you not to come to pick up the plane. Why did you come anyway?”
Lu Yubai and Zhou Zihuai were stunned. The two of them shared a glance, and they could see the surprise in each other’s eyes.
They were standing not far away from Sheng Hua, and their eyesight was excellent. There was no doubt the man was Sheng Hua, but…
Why was Sheng Hua calling Fu Zhi his master?!
At the same time, the young lady standing in front of the man leaned against the pillar and replied, “Well… Director Liu said that if I went to the airport to receive you, he would not give me zero marks on my paper next time.”
Sheng Hua was speechless.
