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?”
“I am not here to complain about Jiang Li.” Feng Yun frowned and interrupted the dorm teacher. No mother liked to listen to others belittling their children.
“Ah?” The dorm teacher was puzzled.
Because Feng Yun was worried about Jiang Ruo’s mental state, she hurriedly went to the girl to ask about her life at school and her recent studies. Seeing Jiang Ruo showing her usual behavior and a long-lost carefree smile, Feng Yun finally sighed in relief. She cared about her biological daughter, but this adopted daughter was the one she raised in the palm of her hand. Whether Xiao Li or Ruoruo, she loved both of them equally, and hoped them to be happy and well.
Feng Yun originally planned to wait for the weekend, intending to have a good conversation with Jiang Li to bring their mother-daughter relationship closer. But when the weekend finally arrived, she received a WeChat message from Jiang Li and Jiang Ruo’s homeroom teacher Mrs. He, informing her that Jiang Li wanted to focus on studying and had applied to stay in school on the weekend.
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.”
It took no time for the class to know that Shen Mian had tripped Jiang Li during the P.E. exam. Everyone was stunned — they all knew about the conflict between Shen Mian and Jiang Li before, but no one ever guessed that Shen Mian would sabotage Jiang Li in such an important exam. In the eyes of most classmates, Shen Mian was a warmhearted girl, albeit a bit stubborn. Usually, when someone asked for her help, Shen Mian was always ready to lend a hand.
The period after the P.E. exam was a self-study session, specially arranged by the school to allow the students to take a breather while preparing for the next mock exam. Jiang Li didn’t go back to the classroom after the exam. Instead, she went directly to Director Li’s office and asked permission to see the surveillance records. The reason she gave was that she fell down during the long-distance run and was helped by someone, but she didn’t see who the person was and wanted to say thanks.
After the run, Jiang Li slowly dragged her severely exhausted body to the edge of the running track. She was about to sit down on the ground and rest for a while when Tong Yi’s voice suddenly came, “Don’t stop moving suddenly after a strenuous exercise. You may pass out.” The boy passed the bottle in his hand, “Drink this first, and take a slow walk.”
