After finishing the call with Jiang Ruo, Feng Yun immediately went to Jiang Huai’s study and told him about the matter of Jiang Ruo’s friend tripping Jiang Li during the P.E. exam.
Jiang Huai lightly brushed it off: “Just a small conflict between children. Let them handle it by themselves.”
Feng Yun shook her head and said again, “Xiao Li has just returned home and is not close to us. I heard from Ruoruo that she doesn’t have friends at school but is quite close to her deskmate Tong Yi.”
“Tong Yi?” Jiang Huai frowned, “You mean that kid from the Tong family?”
Feng Yun nodded, “He used to be a good boy. Such a pity…”
“What’s the use of sympathizing with someone who abandons himself?” Jiang Huai said disdainfully, “After his parents died, he didn’t live up to expectations and let the Tong family completely fall into his uncle’s hands.”
Thinking that his wife just said that Jiang Li and Tong Yi were getting close, Jiang Huai couldn’t help frowning: “Tell Jiang Li to keep her distance from Tong Yi. I don’t want her to get involved with that kid.”
Feng Yun nodded, “I’ll tell Xiao Li this weekend.”
“Just do it now. Otherwise, strange rumors might spread and make us into jokes.” Jiang Huai didn’t want to wait.
Feng Yun nodded and took out her mobile phone to contact Jiang Li, but as soon as she unlocked the screen, her expression froze. “I didn’t save Xiao Li’s phone number. Do you have it?” Feng Yun looked at her husband.
Jiang Huai shook his head, “Call Ruoruo and ask. She should have it.”
Feng Yun nodded and gave Jiang Ruo a call.
When Jiang Ruo felt her phone vibrate, she took it and saw that Feng Yun was calling. However, when the call was connected, she was disappointed to find that her mother was asking for Jiang Li’s phone number. Jiang Ruo also didn’t have the number, so she had to get up from her bed and go to Jiang Li’s room. After the door opened, Jiang Ruo looked at Jiang Li and whispered, “Mom’s calling.”
Jiang Li took the phone from Jiang Ruo’s hand and went to the balcony. “Hello.” Her voice was cold.
Feng Yun didn’t seem to mind Jiang Li’s coldness as she said softly, “Xiao Li, it’s now late. Haven’t you slept yet?”
Jiang Li asked back in response, “What does it matter to you?”
Feng Yun: …
She sighed and said sincerely, “Xiao Li, we are mother and daughter. Mom’s calling you is of course because I care about you and want to know if you have gotten used to the new school.”
“I’m fine. Nothing worthy to talk about.” Jiang Li’s attitude was as cold as before.
“You, ah.” Feng Yun said helplessly. “Ruoruo has already told me about the conflict between you and Shen Mian. Shen Mian tripped you during the physical exam, but she has already been punished…”
Jiang Li frowned, “You are calling just for this?”
Feng Yun was stunned. She didn’t quite understand why her daughter suddenly became annoyed. Thinking that Jiang Li was still angry about Shen Mian, Feng Yun quickly changed the subject, “I also heard from Ruoruo that you and Tong Yi have a good relationship?”
Jiang Li was silent for two seconds, then answered truthfully, “We sit at the same desk.”
“But Ruoruo told me that Tong Yi gave you his meal card and even bought you water…”
Jiang Li frowned and interrupted Feng Yun, “It’s late now. If there is nothing else…”
“Don’t hang up yet.” Feng Yun hurriedly stopped Jiang Li, “Tell me your mobile phone number. It will be convenient for Mom to contact you later.” It was indeed really late now, and Feng Yun didn’t want to disturb her daughter’s rest, so she quickly asked for Jiang Li’s phone number and WeChat account.
Jiang Li let out an audible sigh, “I don’t have a mobile phone now.”
Feng Yun: …
“As for the matter of borrowing Tong Yi’s meal card, he sympathized with me when he saw how I was penniless and didn’t even have money to eat. Does it matter to you?” Leaving this last sentence, Jiang Li didn’t wait for Feng Yun’s reaction and immediately hung up the call. She then returned to the dormitory and returned the phone to Jiang Ruo.
Jiang Ruo was curious about the conversation Jiang Li had with her mother, so she couldn’t help but ask, “So quick?”
Jiang Li nodded and pointed to the door, “It’s almost blackout time.”
Jiang Ruo bit her lip lightly and returned to her room.
Feng Yun listened to the busy tone in a daze and failed to return to her senses. Xiao Li’s words just now made her realize how incompetent she was as a mother. After a long time, she turned to her husband and said, “Xiao Li has no mobile phone and no pocket money.”
Jiang Huai frowned, “She didn’t ask you for pocket money?”
Feng Yun shook her head, “I thought you gave her your supplementary card. I didn’t know that she didn’t even have a mobile phone.”
Jiang Huai didn’t think it was a serious matter. He stopped his work and rubbed his temples, “I’ll give her a supplementary card when she gets home this weekend. As for the mobile phone, you can buy one for her.”
Feng Yun was still very guilty, “Do you think we are too incompetent as parents?”
“Don’t think too much.” Jiang Huai couldn’t bear his wife’s sentimentality, “She didn’t say anything before, but now she’s scolding you for not caring about her. Can you not see that she just wants to make us feel guilty? This is nothing more than her childish trick to gain our attention. You shouldn’t mind it.”
Feng Yun: …
Really? But how could she feel that Xiao Li seemed so disappointed that she didn’t even want to communicate with her parents?
