“How did you get here?” Mu Xiaoxiao looked at him in consternation.
Yin Shaojie harrumphed and walked over to face her. He repeated strongly, “Whatever you requested just now — I won’t agree to it!”
After saying that, he turned his head towards the Principal. With an air of righteousness, he said, “Mr. Principal, do not rehire the person I fired. Understood?”
The Principal, who had been sitting down, jumped to a standing position in fright at his appearance.
Wiping the sweat on his forehead, the Principal complied respectfully, saying, “Understood, Young Master Jie. I will follow your instructions to the letter,” he said.
“YIN SHAOJIE!” Mu Xiaoxiao roared his name in anger, her face flushing red. “How could you do this? Do you have a problem with the guard? Why did you take his job away? Your, your actions are so vile!” she howled.
Yin Shaojie walked over to her. Facing her, he snapped, “Did I not do this for your sake? Instead, you want to rehire the person I fired for you and give me a metaphorical slap to the face?
He had absolute say in what went on in the school. There was no one who dared to challenge his influence!
“I didn’t need you to stand up for me!” Mu Xiaoxiao retorted. Her chest heaved with fury as she glared at him, rage in her eyes.
“You — ” Yin Shaojie glared at her as though she had trampled on his kindness.
“You’re doing this for Lu Yichen aren’t you?” he said suddenly, his handsome face contorted with rage.
“What are you talking about?” Mu Xiaoxiao looked at him in confusion and asked in a puzzled tone, “You know Lu Yichen?”
Yin Shaojie’s lips twitched in mockery. “He had a beef with me. How could I not know him? Mu Xiaoxiao, why are you so easily infatuated with people? Why do you throw yourself so carelessly at anyone who looks good?”
He understood now that the gorgeous hunk she had been talking about was Lu Yichen.
Yin Shaojie’s anger rose again as he thought about this.
Also, she had left his car earlier in the morning and cast him off because she had spotted Lu Yichen.
“I’m not like that! I treat him as just a friend. It’s not that I…” she said, trying to explain herself.
Yin Shaojie interrupted her, “Are you denying things? The video of both of you behaving so intimately with each other has already spread through school like wildfire! There isn’t a single person who doesn’t know that you are the first girl Lu Yichen is giving special treatment to!”
“What video? What intimacy?”
Mu Xiaoxiao was thoroughly confused by him and could not understand him at all.
Yin Shaojie took out his phone and played the video for her.
Mu Xiaoxiao was stunned. It was really a video of her and Lu Yichen’s interaction earlier. However, due to the videographer’s distance, it was impossible to hear what they were saying, but from their actions, it looked as though they were behaving intimately. People who had no idea of the context would obviously think that there was something going on between them.
“I… I’m not… you’re mistaken!”
“What am I misunderstanding here? Didn’t you look for him yourself? Didn’t you behave intimately with him? Also, the gorgeous hunk you wanted to eat with yesterday was him, am I right? You’ve only known him since yesterday, yet you have such a big crush on him already? Don’t you know that he has a girlfriend already? Mu Xiaoxiao, how are you so muddle-headed?
Yin Shaojie boiled with anger. Since when had she become like this?
Had she been corrupted by America’s open-minded values?
Did she thus think that it would be interesting to steal the boyfriend of another girl?
“How did you become so corrupted?”
Upon hearing this, Mu Xiaoxiao jolted, and her eyes reddened.
