After frightening the group of reporters, Director Li turned his attention to Jiang Ruo and Jiang Zhou, “Follow me to the Academic Affairs Office and explain the matter of the anonymous text clearly.”
Jiang Ruo replied in a low voice: “I want to call my mother first and tell her that I will come home late.”
Jiang Zhou said immediately: “I have contacted her and explained the matter. She should be here soon.”
Jiang Ruo’s eyes widened in disbelief, “How is this possible?”
The reporter reached out his hand to Tong Yi and asked, “Can you return the phone to me now?”
Tong Yi glanced at Jiang Zhou who stood not far away, and finally returned both the phone and the microphone with a light sneer. Now that Jiang Ruo was involved, Jiang Zhou would never stand by, so he only needed to step back now to watch the fun.
Because of Jiang Li’s arrogant remarks, Shen Mian’s calculations crumbled, and her ruse turned into a big joke.
Looking at the fire brigade’s air cushion below, Shen Mian shiveringly stretched out one foot and tried to jump off, because this was the only way to turn the public opinion to her side again and make the people who had just slandered her feel guilty.
The two were twins: the elder brother’s name was Feng Song, and the younger brother was Feng Bai. They were twenty this year and sophomores in the college.
Feng Bai was the one who watched the livestream and found the girl to be familiar, so he excitedly shared it with his brother, but completely forgot about the latter’s facial blindness.
The crowd’s voice was getting louder and louder, but Jiang Li kept silent all the time. Tong Yi thought she was frightened by the situation and was about to speak in her defense when the girl suddenly opened her mouth.
“Why do you think that Shen Mian’s jumping off the building was related to me? Did she tell you personally?” Jiang Li’s voice was calm and composed, a sharp contrast to the crowd’s aggressiveness.
Jiang Li and Tong Yi left the classroom together and followed the crowd to the faculty building, where many students were already gathering. Outside the guardrail of the rooftop of the building stood Shen Mian, looking very shaken.
Tong Yi’s expression changed instantly. Without missing a beat, he pulled Jiang Li’s arm and said, “Didn’t you promise to treat me to eat hot pot today? Let’s go. Don’t think you can default on your debt.”
Today was finally the mock exam day. Inside the exam room, Jiang Li browsed through the Chinese paper, surprised to find them slightly easier than the past real exam questions. She carefully answered each question, checking them twice after she finished. Even so, she found there was still time left, so she simply handed the paper ahead of time.
In every subject that followed, Jiang Li found that the mock exam questions were easier than she had anticipated. She guessed that because this was the last mock exam before the real battle, the school probably wanted to boost the students’ confidence!
After leaving the school, Feng Yun was in a daze. She somehow felt that she had forgotten something important, but couldn’t remember what it was. When Jiang Huai returned home in the evening, he was met by his wife’s absent-mindedness. Seeing this, he frowned and asked, “Didn’t you go to see Jiang Li today? How is it?”
Feng Yun sighed, “She is clearly still blaming us. Speaking of which, we indeed didn’t take good care of her. No wonder she blames us.”
Tong Yi pushed open the door, paid no attention to Director Li’s face which was already as black as Judge Bao’s, and said leisurely, “Better give me cash. If you put the credit into my meal card, I may not be able to eat that much.”
Director Li asked flatly, “Are you short of money recently?”
Tong Yi didn’t even bat an eyelid as he replied seriously, “Yeah. Money is a little tight now.”
Jiang Li’s attitude was too cold and indifferent. Unable to withstand it, Feng Yun’s eyes slightly reddened, and her voice became hoarse: “Xiao Li, I know you are blaming us, but your father and I also have difficulties. Although we have no way to announce your identity to the public for the time being, but we…”
“Since you guys have made the decision, there is no need to say more, because it is impossible for me to sympathize with your so-called difficulties, understand?”
