Chapter 7: Letter of acceptance
At this time, Zhang Ye finally started to speak
“Someone paid 10 million, so that I dose Gu Qing Shan with aphrodisiac, and make sure that he confesses to Su Xue Er”
The elderly man keeps his rhythmic voice: “Who is that person?”
Zhang Ye: “The person used an anonymous account, I don’t know who he is”
This is the truth.
Unfortunately, the trail also goes cold here.
The elderly man’s expression became serious again.
The person that did this is very careful, and very cautious.
He dared to use the Su family young lady’s friend to do his deeds, not only does he show a motive to harm the Su family young lady, he also showed no slack or opening to find him with, this just became much more complicated.
Because, this area is Chang Ning county, and this is the Su family’s main turf.
The elderly man retracts his hand, Zhang Ye immediately regain his senses.
Right away he drops down to his knees, face full of tears begging: “I was tempted by the devil, Qing Shan, I’ve made a mistake”
Gu Qing Shan doesn’t say anything.
Zhang Ye keeps his kneeling position, slowly inches towards Gu Qing Shan, begging once again: “Qing Shan, we were best friends for many years, I’ve wronged you only this one time, I beg you, please forgive me”
He’s also clever, knowing that he only directly tried to harm Gu Qing Shan, so he immediately goes to Gu Qing Shan and beg for forgiveness.
Gu Qing Shan this person, in everyday life he’s always a good person at heart, plus being this Zhang Ye’s close friend, I’m showing no dignity begging for his forgiveness in front of so many people, Gu Qing Shan probably will also not pursue this too far.
Su Xue Er is also a big softy, as long as Gu Qing Shan forgive me, Su Xue Er will probably also won’t pursue this matter anymore.
This matter also didn’t leave any lasting or irreversible effects, as long as Su Xue Er doesn’t pursue it, then the Su family will also not stoop so low as to torture a penniless student such as himself.
Just as he thought, Su Xue Er looks as Gu Qing Shan, hesitantly: “How do you want to deal with this, he… in the end is still a classmate”
Aunty Su immediately stops her words: “Young lady, this matter isn’t as simple as this, we have to pursue it to the end”
Her serious eyes turn to Gu Qing Shan.
Gu Qing Shan keep silent for a while, then smiles.
“To be honest, right now my thoughts are about the same as yours”, he looks at the groveling Zhang Ye and speaks.
Zhang Ye shivers, his face shows a clear sense of relief: “Do you mean, you’re willing to forgive me?”
In front of the gaze of everybody here, Gu Qing Shan swiftly walks in front of Zhang Ye and whispers: “Right now I feel that our friendship should just go to hell already”
Just as he finished, Gu Qing Shan suddenly lifts his leg and kicks Zhang ye right in his chest.
Zhang Ye who got kicked flew a few meters away, slamming and crashing two tables full of alcohol, soaking himself in it.
A large bottle of champagne drops down, conveniently smashing him on the head, knocking Zhang Ye out on the spot.
Gu Qing Shan turns around, lightly speaks: “Aunty Su, the matters after this I’ll have to depend on you, please find out who was behind him”
Aunty Su looks at him with shining eyes: “Good move brat, originally I feared that Su Xue Er becoming your friend would make her soft, seems like that was for nothing after all”
Aunty Su swings her hand, and a beautiful helicopter quickly descends from above.
This white steel alloy helicopter, in its front proudly carries a single letter “Su”, the symbol of nobility in this Chang Ning county.
The elderly man takes Zhang Ye up to the helicopter.
Aunty Su speaks: “Young lady, today we shouldn’t remain here for too long, let’s also leave now”
Su Xue Er nods her head, when passing by Gu Qing Shan, she spoke: “Tomorrow night, I’ll come to your stall for a grilled meat feast, that’s ok right?”
Gu Qing Shan is shocked for a second, but replied: “Always welcome”
This is the nonsense that he used to smooth over the confession earlier, he didn’t think she would actually accept it.
But Gu Qing Shan doesn’t really have anything to worry about, since after school every day, he would always set up a stall to sell grilled meat, using the money he makes from that to pay for expenses.
Su Xue Er smiles beautifully at him, then follow Aunty Su onto the Su family helicopter.
The helicopter quickly goes away.
Right after Su family left, many organization representatives also left, leaving a grand prom night to end prematurely just like that.
This is probably the most catastrophic graduation prom night in the history of Chang Ning Noble Private High School thus far.
But to Gu Qing Shan, this is the best prom night he could’ve hoped for.
He finally escaped from that dead-end scenario in which he had no way to explain himself, it wasn’t like his last life, where the school expelled him.
Just a few days later, he would be able to take the Confederate Common University exam.
With his academic records, he can easily pass the examination, picking whichever university he wants.
On the other hand, Zhang Ye’s end won’t be quite as good.
Su Xue Er and Zhang Ye doesn’t have such a close relationship as he does, plus the fact that this whole incident was orchestrated by Zhang Ye from behind, directly harming both Gu Qing Shan and Su Xue Er.
Not only will Su Xue Er not be asking to spare Zhang Ye as she did for him, but the Su family will also use any and all methods they have to find out he really is behind Zhang Ye.
What he suffered on his past life, Zhang Ye will suffer the same, or perhaps even worse.
Everything has changed.
Gu Qing Shan with his renewed mood, walks to the school exit.
He’s just an orphan at the slums, he can’t afford a helicopter, not even a taxi ride home, each and every day going to school he can only do with his own two feet.
Half an hour later.
When Gu Qing Shan have left the busy district and about to enter the poor residence’s main square, his feet suddenly stopped.
In front of the alley, a 1.9-meter-long wingless type helicopter is packed there.
A middle-aged man wearing a white shirt and black tie stands next to the helicopter, gracefully bow as if to welcome Gu Qing Shan as he approached.
“Student Gu, our young master is waiting for you inside the helicopter”, said the middle-aged man.
Gu Qing Shan silently looks at the safety cameras on the street corner, the originally red blinking lights of the camera is no longer seen.
Even this large square area, no one is approaching from all four sides.
“And who is your young master?” Gu Qing Shan questioned.
The middle-aged man doesn’t talk much, only standing aside, making a gesture to invite him inside: “Please”
How interesting, Gu Qing Shan smiles to himself, walking straight into the helicopter.
The inside of the helicopter is decorated lavishly as expected, a single young man sits in his leather-made sofa, two girls kneeling at his feet softly massaging them.
From the inside bar, a girl wearing cute bunny ears quickly whips up a cocktail, placing it in front of Gu Qing Shan.
“Thank you”, said Gu Qing Shan as he accepts the glass.
“Qing Shan, come, sit”, said the young man.
Gu Qing Shan sits down right across the young man, casually placing the cocktail on the table, smiles and asks: “Please tell, what does our honorable student council president want, waiting outside my house at this late hour?”
The young man shakes his head: “Calling me that seems too distant, young master Yun is fine”
This young man, is Chang Ning Noble Private High School’s student council president, Nie Yun.
Nie Yun is a member of the She family noble clan, to be precise, the grandson of She family’s current patriarch.
Of noble origins, in this school, aside from Su Xue Er, no one is more noble than him.
Nie Yun brushes off his hand: “Good, you all are dismissed”
The girls quickly clean up the place, leaving the helicopter.
Nie Yun then picks up a sheet of paper on the table, reading and speaking at the same time: “Qing Shan, your records really are excellent, every final exam you trounce both Su Xue Er and I”
“Just seeing here, Elementary Mech Structure, maximum score; World War History, maximum score; Holo-Brain Technology, maximum score; Warship Piloting, maximum score; even your elective subject, Mech Power Source Study, you got maximum score, only in Physical Education is your score barely a passing grade”
Nie Yun lowers the paper, exclaimed softly: “You are also an official staff at Chang Ning Steel Mech Research Center, this wasn’t gotten using your relationship with Su Xue Er, but rather through your own excellence, even inside Su family many people probably can only look at your achievement in awe”
Gu Qing Shan nonchalantly: “I’m only working for a better future for myself”
Nie Yun shakes his head: “In this whole Chang Ning county, every poor sap wants to enter Su family’s Steel Mech Research company, but only you actually succeed, this can only be talent and nothing else”
“I’m really impressed with your kind of people, so now I want to give you a chance”, Nie Yun took from inside his chest pocket a letter, placing it in front of Gu Qing Shan.
“This is?” asked Gu Qing Shan
“See for yourself”
Gu Qing Shan opened the letter and took a look at what was inside.
He whispers: “Nan Shi Lordship Institute letter of acceptance?”
“That’s correct”, Nie Yun smiles: “You only need to agree, no need to even take the exams, you can immediately enter this university”
Gu Qing Shan puts down the letter and spoke: “Thank you for your kindness, but I don’t plan on joining this university”
Nan Shi Lordship Institute is only a third-rate bottom rank university, and it’s situated on the least populated area of Nan Shi province, their main major is underground mineral study, a subject few cares about.
Gu Qing Shan himself have many choice universities, with his record, getting into one of the few State-sanctioned universities in the country is no problem, basically he has no need to even consider such a third-rate institute.
“No need to be hasty and decline, just take a minute and think, is your own life important, or is being friends with Su Xue Er more important”, Nie Yun’s tone suddenly became cold.
Gu Qing Shan looks up and asked: “Now why would you say that?”
Nie Yun’s smile disappeared completely, sitting straight up: “The whole of Chang Ning county—- no, the whole noble community of the Confederate, all hope to have Su Xue Er marry into their own house, yet you, a pitiable insect of a poor student, dared to make a confession scene in front of everybody”
Nie Yun sighs and continues: “You have no money, no power, not even a Professionist, anyone of them that wants to kill you can just squish you like a bug”
He picks up the letter of acceptance on the table and hold it out for Gu Qing Shan.
“Just go, take this letter of acceptance and go far away, afterwards don’t ever contact Su Xue Er again, then you can keep your life”
Gu Qing Shan simply looks at the letter of acceptance, not taking it, “Nie Yun, you say all this, not representing anyone but yourself, am I right? Seeing as we were fellow high school students for three years, I’ll give you some advice”
“Ha ha ha, you, give me advice?”, Nie Yun looks at him like looking at a clown trying his best to keep up an act.
This brat is smart to immediately see through my intention, but so what?
The two of us from the start are already not from the same world, after graduation, the difference will become like between heaven and the earth, no longer will I ever have to see him again.
Fine, let the poor brat speak his piece, see what he has to say.
Nie Yun smiles with eyes not smiling and asks: “Fine then, tell me, I’ll listen”
“Go and be your family’s rich young master, and don’t cross me”, afterwards, Gu Qing Shan immediately left the helicopter, doesn’t bother to look back.
Nie Yun stands alone for a bit, then shakes his head: “Like a locust trying to stop an elephant, pathetic and funny”
He pushes a button on the table.
Not long after the middle-aged man from outside the helicopter steps in, lowering his head: “Yes, young master”
Nie Yun asks: “What of the thing I told you to prepare?”
“Our preparations are ready”
“Any chance for failure?”
The middle-aged man lightly smiles and replies: “The people we hired are all top-notch professionals, guaranteed to look like an accident, even if there are investigations later, the results will be nothing but that”
Nie Yun coldly laughs: “Very good, then do it”
“Yes”, the middle-aged man took a look at his watch, then replies: “Young master can be assured, 10 minutes later, Gu Qing Shan will die by an unfortunate accident”
