Chapter 387: Ye Jiu VS Lu Yumo
Fu Zhi and Ye Jiu returned to No.1 High School in the afternoon.
Although Ye Jiu was a tad older, before he joined the school, Ye Qi had donated two million to beautify the facilities.
Director Liu instantly said that No. 1 High School would always welcome anyone who wanted to expand their knowledge, even if Ye Jiu was five years older than the rest of the students.
Fu Zhi first took Ye Jiu to say hello to Ma Mingquan, as Ye Jiu was going to join his class.
After running Ye Jiu through everything he needed to know about the school, Ma Mingquan reassured him. “Don’t get nervous when you’re in class. All of them are good kids, and since your sister is their leader, nobody will dare to look down on you because of your age. Besides…”
He paused for a moment before adding, “You didn’t go to school because of your family issues, but look at Lu Yumo. He’s failed his exam many times and he’s still very proud of himself.”
Lu Yumo, who was currently being scolded by his teacher in the office, was stunned.
‘Did I ever feel proud of myself? How can you lie through your teeth?’
However, that did not matter anymore. Lu Yumo then told Ma Mingquan, reassuring him, “I will certainly score better than him in the final exam!”
Lu Yumo had heard the sad story that Ye Jiu had made up.
He had said that he had been forced into child labor at eight years old and had never gone to school before.
Even though Lu Yumo had failed his exams, he was not an idiot.
Ye Jiu looked at Lu Yumo as if he was looking at a clown. Then, he said, “You want to compare grades with me?”
“Yes. In case someone says I’m bullying you, let’s…”
“Sounds good to me.” Ye Jiu squinted his eyes. “However, if I score better than you, you’ll have to be my slave. You will need to bring me tea and fetch me water whenever I want, and you won’t say no to me.”
Fu Zhi tugged at Lu Yumo’s sleeve and shook her head to ask him to back off, but Lu Yumo paid her no mind.
He could see that victory was waving at him, and he was not happy with Fu Zhi for not standing on his side. “How can you be so protective of him? Do you really think that I will lose to him as well?”
Fu Zhi said, “I’m doing this for your sake.”
It was true that Ye Jiu had never attended school, but that did not mean that he had never received an education before.
Besides, Fu Zhi swore that she was not exaggerating things, but if there was a person in this world that could guess all the answers correctly, that was Ye Jiu.
“If you’re doing it for my sake, then you should support me!”
Lu Yumo flung Fu Zhi’s hand away, looked at Ye Jiu, and said, “It’s a deal then! If you’re a man, then man up and stand up for yourself. Don’t always rely on Zhizhi to help you!”
Ye Jiu nodded and said, “Okay, brother.”
Fu Zhi did not know what to say anymore.
Ma Mingquan sent Ye Jiu back to Class 21 first. Fu Zhi stayed behind and discussed with him Ye Jiu’s learning status.
Qian Wenrui was in the office as well. She perked her ears up and focused on their conversation.
She had lost a few good students, and Lu Yubai was her final hope. Then, she heard Fu Zhi say, “Well, I can’t say he’s very good at studying. He’s academically mediocre and he has a bad temper. If he does something wrong in the future, you can talk to me and treat me as his mother.”
Qian Wenrui let out a sigh of relief.
He did not perform well academically and he had a bad temper. She figured that he was not a good student, so he posed no threat to her students.
Ma Mingquan nodded and sent Fu Zhi back to her class.
When she passed by Class 1, she bumped into Mu Chenxi, and the latter’s face darkened the moment she saw her.
Fu Zhi ignored her and climbed up the stairs. Meanwhile, Mu Chenxi shouted, “Fu Zhi!”
Fu Zhi continued to ignore her.
Left with no other choice, Mu Chenxi followed her. “Don’t get so cheeky, Fu Zhi. Even though Pure Feather helped you donate the books to No.1 High School, she will get all the credit in the end, and you won’t even gain anything! You’re just a stepping stone for her to get even more famous!”
Fu Zhi looked at her as if she was looking at an idiot.
Mu Chenxi sneered, “Just you wait and see! The day of your retribution is coming!”
She continued to shout as she followed Fu Zhi. Fu Zhi pushed the door to Director Liu’s office and shouted, “Director Liu! A crazy woman won’t let me go back to my class!”
Mu Chenxi was stunned.
Director Liu happened to be looking for Fu Zhi as well. When he saw Mu Chenxi, his face sank, and he said, “Why won’t you let her go back to her class?”
“I… She… We…” Mu Chenxi’s head went blank.
‘I was just shouting at her. I didn’t stop her from going back to her class. How can you believe everything she said?’
Director Liu waved his hand to ask Mu Chenxi to go back to her own class.
Mu Chenxi’s face turned ugly as she stared at Fu Zhi.
Director Liu led Fu Zhi into his office.
“Here’s the thing. I bumped into Mu Changqing when I was coming to school this morning. I’m sure you know him, right?”
Fu Zhi nodded.
Director Liu said, “While we were chatting, he told me about Master Pure Feather…”
Well, it was not a big deal at all. From Director Liu’s perspective, it was Pure Feather who did not want to cooperate with the Mu Family anymore. He did not understand why Mu Changqing had to say it was Fu Zhi’s fault that Pure Feather had chosen not to work with them.
It was not that Director Liu favored Fu Zhi more. It was just that Fu Zhi was a kid, and how could a kid affect Pure Feather’s decision?
Pure Feather must have her own reasons for refusing to work with them.
However, Mu Changqing did not think so.
Director Liu was not happy either.
Although Fu Zhi was a problematic student, she was good-hearted.
Fu Zhi said, “Pure Feather doesn’t want to work with the Mu Family? Well, that’s a good decision.”
Director Liu was speechless.
“So I take it that this matter really has nothing to do with you, right?”
“Look into my eyes, Director Liu. I’m a righteous person. Do you think I would do something as evil as that?”
‘Well… It’s hard to say!’
Director Liu then said, “Alright then. I will help you tell the Mu Family, but I’m sure you’re well aware of the Mu Family’s status in Yu City. If you really sabotaged the cooperation, then you’d better do something about it. Otherwise…”
Ye Jiu had only joined Class 21 two days ago and he had become Song Fang’s good friend.
He looked too much like Fu Zhi.
All the girls in her class who had asked Fu Zhi to consider them if she was ever ready to enter a relationship turned and threw themselves at Ye Jiu.
‘Hah… Women,’ Fu Zhi thought. ‘They all promised me that they’d love me forever, but they all had a change of heart the moment they saw something new.’
Ye Jiu was pretty obedient in class, as Fu Zhi had been very strict with him lately.
She forbade him to curse and did not allow him to drink, smoke, or fight with other people. Not only that, but she also forced him to take his medicine every day.
As a result, the little prince had not been very happy recently. On Friday, Fu Zhi had no idea what he had done last night, but he suddenly had a high fever and could only lie in bed.
Fu Zhi took a day off from school to take care of him, so she did not know that something happened in No.1 High School that shocked both Director Liu and the teachers.
