Chapter 225: Was Huo Yao Acquainted With The Min Family?
A thought crossed the Principal’s mind and his expression suddenly became grave. “If you encounter trouble in the future, you can come to me. I have plenty of friends in this city.”
If anyone knowing him heard this, they would definitely be shocked.
The Principal was originally from the capital and hailed from the influential Yu clan. Even though it was not the most powerful family in the capital, they were highly respectable. They were definitely a hundred times better than the Lu family, to put it bluntly.
By making this offer, Huo Yao was now under the Yu clan’s protection.
Huo Yao smiled. Although she needed no one’s protection, she replied sweetly. “Thank you, Sir!”
The Principal became slightly emotional seeing her like this. He recalled what happened with Lu Xia today and he could not help reminding Huo Yao. “Sometimes, it’s no good to live so straightforwardly. You have to be a little cautious.”
Huo Yao raised her head to glance at the Principal. She touched her nose when she saw him looking at her earnestly. It seemed her façade as a model student was a big success.
“It’s the national exam next week, so work hard. I’m counting on you to get into the finals,” reminded the Principal.
If Huo Yao could perform well at the International Quiz Contest, it would certainly be a boon to her. In the future, she would never have to compromise again when facing things like her foster father’s accusations.
After all, the world was filled with influential people, so she would only stop getting slandered if she could rise to the top.
Huo Yao did not realize the Principal’s kind intentions. She merely gestured ‘okay’ and said, “Don’t worry. I will definitely come back with an international trophy.”
She paused before she continued. “But you can’t have my trophy.”
She had to give it to her grandmother for sure.
The Principal’s lips twitched. He knew that she was competitive, so he did not want to hurt her feelings. “There will be a lot of superbly talented competitors in the final contest.”
Huo Yao raised her brow and replied arrogantly. “That will make things fun.”
Someone knocked at the door, so Huo Yao stood up. “Okay then, I’m heading back to class.”
The Principal stood up as well. “Go on.”
Huo Yao walked up to the door and opened it.
The man knocking was the Dean, who stood there with two familiar faces behind him.
Huo Yao was surprised to see them.
“Miss Huo,” said Zhuo Yun in evident astonishment. But he quickly composed himself and greeted her courteously.
Min Yu looked at Huo Yao with a gentle expression and said, “Did I interrupt your conversation?”
Huo Yao walked out and said casually, “Nope. We were done. I was leaving anyway.”
Min Yu nodded. His striking features lost some of their usual indifference.
The Dean could not help enquiring softly. “Do you know each other?”
“Uh huh.” Zhuo Yun nodded. “Miss Huo is friends with my boss... Young Master Min.”
A look of surprise emerged on the Principal’s face after he walked out and heard this. Did Huo Yao really know Young Master Min?
Judging from Zhuo Yun’s attitude, he seemed to be treating her with a degree of respect. That seemed rather inconceivable.
Huo Yao nodded to Min Yu and Zhuo Yun without speaking further. Then she looked at the Principal and said, “I’m off.”
“O-okay...” The Principal nodded in a daze. He finally gathered his thoughts and courteously invited Min Yu into the office.
