“Yaya Tongxue, can you please bring your manners with you when you leave the house?” Mu Rulan asked pleasantly, legs crossed as she leaned back against the chair back.
“You…!” Translated by The Novelst
“Also,” interrupted Mu Rulan, smiling, “If you think I want to take revenge, why would I do it so childishly?”
Zhou Yaya’s expression contorted. “What do you mean? What are you trying to do to me? You devil! Are you going to kill me too? Come on then, if you have the guts!”
Zhou Yaya was full of ridicule. She was betting that Mu Rulan wouldn’t dare do anything to her inside Liu Silan.
Mu Rulan remained calm. “Why don’t I give you a gift before we continue this topic?”
Under Zhou Yaya’s suspicious gaze, Mu Rulan bent down a little to take something out of her drawer. She placed the thing on her desk, letting Zhou Yaya see what it was.
It was a small pendant, ice-blue jade crystal clear, and on top of it were the flying wings of a crane, carved to be nearly lifelike.
Zhou Yaya’s eyes widened in wonder and she grabbed the pendant, inspecting it closely. She could confirm within two seconds that this was the lost pendant she had come in that morning early to find, only to be assaulted in the bathroom.
The pendant had been gifted to her by her grandmother while she was still at her hometown. She liked it very much and it was precious to her. She had thought she couldn’t find it ever again, but she didn’t imagine…
She raised her head with disbelief to look at the girl smiling across from her. Her eyes filled with resentment as she ground out, “It was you?!”
That time she was dragged into the toilet, it had nothing to do with Bai Suqing but rather was because of Mu Rulan?
Mu Rulan smiled deeply, looking gratified, “That’s right. It was me ya, but you should be grateful to me. If it wasn’t for me who helped you practice, how could you have remained in one piece while Qing Qing was scheming against you?”
“How can you be so shameless!” Zhou Yaya was ablaze with rage. She ran past the desk to teach Mu Rulan a lesson. She wanted to beat this b*tch to death!
Zhou Yaya had never imagined that the person behind the incident would be Mu Rulan. How dare she arrange the assault? And in the end, she had even appeared before her like a savior, to make her grateful to her? No matter what, she would kill her today!
“So scary, ya,” Mu Rulan said, standing up to dodge her and then pushing her away forcefully.
Zhou Yyaa wasn’t able to touch Mu Rulan before being pushed to the ground.
Mu Rulan blinked slowly and walked to the window to lean on the windowsill. She smiled and looked at the girl on the floor. “Are you alright? Must be painful.”
Zhou Yaya gritted her teeth in anger before she spotted a fruit knife in one of Mu Rulan’s open drawers. Without hesitation she grabbed the handle and smiled ferociously at Mu Rulan, speeding towards her. “I’m going to kill you!”
Mu Rulan didn’t move, seeming frightened.
The door swung open suddenly and Shu Min entered with two documents in her arms. She saw the knife being shoved towards Mu Rulan and shouted, “President!”
Mu Rulan seemed to come to her senses at that screen, and finally reacted by diving out of the way. Zhou Yaya couldn’t stop the trajectory of her run and fell out of the window. “Ahhhh!”
A few students who were in their physical education class outside had watched the entire altercation from beginning to end. They saw Mu Rulan fall to the side, then Zhou Yaya flew out of the window, knife in hand. Panic swept through the students.
That was the fifth floor!
Shu Min’s face was pale as she rushed to Mu Rulan’s side and helped her up. The pair looked anxiously out the window, only to see Zhou Yaya laying on the ground, unconscious.
A crowd of students and teachers swarmed her still figure to check on her. No one knew what was going on.
Soon enough, an ambulance arrived to take her to the hospital. Following that, the topic of Zhou Yaya attempting to murder Mu Rulan, failing, then falling through the window spread through the school like wildfire.
The central hospital.
Mu Rulan and Shu Min were outside the emergency room being questioned. A police officer was simply doing his routine questioning.
Light footsteps sounded as Hua Fang and Zhou Sulun ran into the area, their faces anxious.
Hua Fang looked at the lit-up sign in the emergency room, twisting her hands anxiously. Once she turned to see Mu Rulan, her face turned frosty and she averted her gaze without a word.
Shu Min furrowed her brows when she saw Hua Fang’s reaction. Those kinds of mothers were usually the most bothersome ones, blindly spoiling the child without teaching manners. Once the child would make a mistake, they would clean up the mess without defining right and wrong. In the end when something went wrong with the child, they would rebuke the victim instead.
After a while, the light went out on the operating sign. A doctor walked out of the room and Hua Fang moved anxiously up to ask, “Doctor, how is my daughter?”
The doctor answered, “The patient is partially paralyzed. In the future she may need to operate a wheelchair. Her throat was also injured in the fall because of the knife; it’s not too serious but she may experience some problems when speaking.”
At that instant, Hua Fang felt as though thunder had struck her in the brain. Her face went pale and she couldn’t get a hold of her bearings for quite a while.
What? Paraplegic? She would have to live with a wheelchair? And could even face problems when speaking?! Why did it become like this?!
“She’s very lucky. If it wasn’t grass that she landed on, she might have experienced severe brain damage.” The doctor left once he was done explaining. Translated by The Novelst
Hua Fang couldn’t even hear what he was saying, only finding it extremely difficult to accept.
Her precious daughter that she had protected so fiercely had to suffer so, even though she was only fifteen? Why? What had she done so wrong that she had to face such a heavy punishment?!
