Standing there tall and straight, Mr. Song emanated a charisma that was characteristic of mature men, as well as an aura that belonged to someone who was used to ruling.
Just by looking at his back alone, An Xiaxia’s pounding heart miraculously calmed down. Instead, her mind was filled with trust in Mr. Song!
It was a trust she couldn’t explain!
Lu followed Mr. Song deferentially. He had been driving Mr. Song to a major event and Qixia High was on their way. Mr. Song had then instructed him to come this way.
As a matter of fact, Mr. Song had given this instruction quite a few times recently, but he would always ask him to park some distance away. He would look at the school from afar before asking Lu to drive off again, as if one glance was enough.
Unexpectedly, Mr. Song saw that weeping girl today and immediately asked Lu to stop outside the school gate.
He had never seen Mr. Song this flustered before.
“Lu, please go talk to the teacher on your own first. Tell him you’re Xiaxia’s relative. I think he knows my face, so I’ll stay outside and see what this teacher really is like…” After some thought, Mr. Song came up with a plan.
Lu nodded. “Yes, Mr. Song.”
He then gave the office door a knock and walked in. “I’m looking for Mr. Liu, please.”
“What?” Mr. Liu replied grumpily.
Lu didn’t expect to find such a disgruntled teacher. However, being around Mr. Song all these years, he had seen his fair share of the world. He then said in a tone that was neither humble nor haughty, “Nice to meet you. I’m An Xiaxia’s family and would like to know what has happened between you and her.”
Mr. Liu tensed up as soon as he heard Lu mention “family.”
He looked Lu up and down. With his fitted suit and tidy hair, Lu cast a prominent figure.
Wasn’t An Xiaxia from a very common background?
As a greeting, Mr. Liu asked, “What line of employment are you in?”
Lu frowned. “I’m a chauffeur.”
Mr. Liu acknowledged that with an “oh.” Tch, a driver. What was with the suit and shiny shoes?
“Here’s what happened. An Xiaxia stole the exam paper for the mock exam, but not only did she refuse to admit it, she disrespected her teacher! Our school regulations deem her conduct punishable with expulsion!”
Lu smiled. “Isn’t expelling her a little too harsh? Is there an alternative solution to this?”
“Alternative? What alternative?” Mr. Liu said scornfully. “Do you know what school this is? We’re the most elite high school in Yu City! Keep her around so she can disturb more fellow students? As far as I know, she doesn’t have a mother. Kids from such families can easily turn into twisted cases… Plus, do you know she has a boyfriend? Did you teach her that at home? Instead of focusing on her studies, she spends her time here hooking up with boys from rich families…”
“Mr. Liu!” Lu cut him off. “First of all, you have no evidence that she stole the paper, so please don’t jump to conclusions. Secondly, please show some respect for the deceased. It’s sad enough that Miss An doesn’t have a mother anymore, why do you keep bringing it up? Last but not least, she is free to fall in love. I have no problem with school discipline, but it is very inappropriate of you to make personal attacks.”
“Miss An… Don’t make me laugh…” Mr. Liu rolled his eyes. Just then, a deep voice came from outside. “You have no right to judge her.”
