The man’s tone was cold and calm to the extreme, but still held volume and strength! The principal’s office quieted down immediately.
Madam Jian murmured his name twice to herself and her expression changed.
The principal was frozen on the spot as well and his wrinkled face was covered in astonishment, giving him a rather comical and ridiculous look.
“So… so it’s Mr. An, right? They’re just kids and don’t know what they’re doing. Sorry for making you go through all this trouble.” Madam Jian gave a smile and went up to them. She even tried to hold An Xiaxia’s arm in a pretentiously affectionate manner. “Miss An, my apologies. Xin’er is just an ignorant girl. How about we each take a step back and let this thing drop?”
An Xiaxia drew back her arm in disgust and gingerly hid behind An Yibei.
Jian Xin’er didn’t seem to know when to stop and she continued to cry arrogantly, “Mom! Are you crazy?! What are you doing apologizing to that bitch An Xiaxia for?! Expel her!”
Madam Jian was so angry that had it not been for all these people here, she would have slapped her. However, she couldn’t bring herself to do it and could only lower her voice and scold her. “Shut up! Control yourself!”
Who exactly was An Yibei? He was someone she had never met. However, she had heard of him.
There was a law firm in Yu City that closed every case they handled, big or small, with perfect results. Each and every one of their lawyers was exceptionally talented.
Among them was a top lawyer. According to his track record in all the cases he had ever managed, his success rate was 100%!
Madam Jian couldn’t help but be wary of this terrifying individual.
An Yibei’s smile was piercing as he asked, “Miss Jian, tell me, did my younger sister really give you that wound on your arm?”
Jian Xin’er confidently replied, “Of course!”
An Yibei turned to look at An Xiaxia. “Xiaxia, if you didn’t do this, this is evidence of her slandering you. If you really did do it, then I can only say, well done.”
“You!” Madam Jian’s smile vanished and she glared at An Yibei.
An Yibei didn’t seem to notice how provoking his words were and reached out to pat An Xiaxia on the head. “After all, it was only self-defense. Even if we end up in court, I can still defend you. As for the charges of defamation and assault, we’ll see about that… Ah, that’s right, falsifying a testimony is also a crime~”
Before he could finish the sentence, Ding Yiyi’s legs gave out and she fell into a heap on the floor with a loud thud.
“I… I didn’t give false testimony…” She was paralyzed from fear.
An Yibei glanced at her sternly. “Then tell me, how did Miss Jian get her wound?!”
Ding Yiyi was completely frightened by his scorching glare and nearly cried out. She replied incoherently, “It… It wasn’t An Xiaxia who did it. X– Xin’er did it to herself. She even forced me to pretend to be a witness! I didn’t want to give false testimony. I don’t want to go to jail either…”
“Ding Yiyi, you idiot!” Jian Xin’er screamed frantically.
Madam Jian pulled her back immediately, her face horrifyingly grim.
An Yibei calmly observed the drama before him before he held An Xiaxia’s hand. “Let’s go. We still need to handle the documentation for withdrawing from school while I arrange a lawyer’s letter to be delivered to the school!”
Before the two of them could step out of the office, the principal ran over to them, covered in cold sweat. He then tried to assume an official air. “Misunderstanding… it’s all just a simple misunderstanding. Mr. An, please calm down. We can talk about this like civil people…”
An Xiaxia looked at the principal’s hypocritical expression and couldn’t help but retch. She then ran out of the principal’s office on her own.
Outside, a tall and handsome figure leaned against the wall, and he raised an eyebrow at her.
“Your brother is even more impressive than the rumors say.”
“Sheng Yize…? Why are you here?” An Xiaxia stared at him, wide-eyed.
