The final result was, of course, not surprising.
After Xia Xibei’s school bag had been turned inside out, Tao Yueying’s bracelet was still nowhere to be found.
The expressions on Tao Yueying’s group became grim.
“So? Do you want to keep going?” Xia Xibei patted her school bag. “Or, shall we cut it open with scissors. Maybe there is something in the lining?”
This ironic remark caused the faces of the three girls to turn even uglier.
However, they had nothing to say.
“So, can my name be cleared now?” Xia Xibei looked around.
“Of course!” Tang Luo nodded.
The others dared not to speak; only Tang Luo was as calm as before.
“Since there is no evidence, you are obviously innocent.”
“Then, do we continue our previous agreement?” Xia Xibei looked at the three of them with a smile.
“Of course, we must continue!” Tang Luo agreed. “The director will not let this matter just pass, right? If I had wronged people, I would apologize!”
The discipline masterdirector looked a bit conflicted.
Xia Xibei did not steal, which was, of course, a good thing.
“We’ll have to do whatever we said before.”
The discipline masterdirector looked at the three of them, including Xia Qinghan. “Since I can’t find the bracelet, it means that this matter has nothing to do with classmate Xia. Therefore, the three of you have to apologize to her.”
“Apologize in front of the whole school!” Xia Xibei added.
“Yes.” The discipline masterdirector nodded. “Tomorrow morning, you will have your apology and read it in front of the entire school.”
As soon as these words came out, the faces of the three girls, including Xia Qinghan, turned pale.
“Why? You’re not admitting it?” Xia Xibei said with a smile. “When you thought I was a thief, you wanted to kick me out of the school! Now I’m just asking you to apologize, so why can’t you?”
After being reminded by Xia Xibei, everyone thought about what had just happened.
The three of them had been very excited just now, wanting to drive Xia Xibei out of school.
No one thought that a reversal would come so quickly.
Xia Qinghan bit her lips so hard they turned white. This was too mortifying!
Would she still have a face if she apologized in front of the whole school? She was the school beauty! After this incident, she would become a laughing stock!
However, no matter how unwilling she was, she had to accept reality.
“Fine!” She gritted her teeth and nodded.
“What about you?” Xia Xibei then looked at Liu Zhijing and Tao Yueying.
Liu Zhijing looked astonished and in disbelief.
She still didn’t want to believe this!
They had obviously planned everything properly, so how did it end up like this?!
“Xia Qinghan has already agreed, are you not willing?” Xia Xibei urged.
The two ground their teeth and nodded humiliatingly, their hearts boiling over with hatred.
Seeing their agreement, the director nodded in satisfaction. “Since the matter has been resolved…”
“No, sirdirector.” Xia Xibei interrupted him. “It’s still not over.”
“The bracelet is still missing!” Xia Xibei looked serious. “And Jin Yazhen’s school bag has not been searched yet! We were talking about it just now!”
When the flames of war spread to herself, Jin Yazhen’s face paled. “You—!”
“What ‘you’?” Xia Xibei shot her a quick look. “We had talked about this earlier. Is it possible that you’re backing out of your promise?”
Before Jin Yazhen could speak, she continued, “Even if you regret it, it’s pointless. I need to prove my innocence!”
After that, she told the girl searching the school bags, “Her school bag is nextIt’s her turn.”
The girl looked around, a little embarrassed.
The discipline master finallyFinally, the director nodded and said, “Go on.”
