Chapter 413 - Lu Huaiyu, You’re Too Difficult to Coax
Ning Li’s heart skipped a beat, and she subconsciously turned her head to look at Lu Huaiyu.
He had one hand in his pocket, and his posture was languid and relaxed. He had a faint smile on his lips, and the corners of his eyes and brows projected a chilliness.
“It’s not wrong to like someone. But if the act of you liking the person causes trouble for others, then… there’s nothing to be proud of.”
Lu Huaiyu’s voice was cold and unhurried.
He was very tall, and he carried a man’s unique cold aura around him. Standing in front of Zhou Cheng like this, he naturally carried a strong sense of oppression.
His words were sharp and direct, which crushed Zhou Cheng mercilessly.
These words seemed to poke at Zhou Cheng, causing the pride on his face to instantly fade, and his expression wavered.
Of course, he knew that after what he had done today, he had brought trouble to Ning Li.
At first, he had felt that he was not wrong, but now…
“Science student, the highest score to date is 668, the best ranking in the grade is only in eleventh place. Participated in the school sports long-distance running team in junior high school, but ultimately, failed to be selected for the city team. He applied for the second year of the high school’s competitive class, but stopped short at the preliminary round.”
Lu Huaiyu stated all this slowly.
Everyone present was shocked.
In such a short time, Lu Huaiyu had actually obtained such detailed personal information about Zhou Cheng!
As he spoke, his crimson thin lips raised slightly into an arc.
“Although she has the freedom to like whoever she wants, with this kind of capital, you still want her to disregard it, and ask her to give you a chance.
“Young student, you really have the guts to say that.”
Ning Li was extremely outstanding.
Compared to the average person, Zhou Cheng could be considered pretty good. He was likely to be held up as an example of a good child by most parents to their own children. However, there was still a big gap between him and Ning Li.
Originally, Lu Huaiyu had not wanted to argue with a sophomore.
He could not really be bothered to make it seem like he was bullying someone for no reason.
However, after he had arrived, he realized that Zhou Cheng was taking himself too seriously.
Ning Li was about to take her college entrance exam in two months. Everyone knew that this was a crucial time.
Zhou Cheng, on the other hand, only cared about his feelings of love without thinking about the consequences of his open confession, especially since there was a high school senior’s parent-teacher conference today.
The students did not mind, but would parents feel the same way?
From the beginning to the end, he had not thought about Ning Li at all.
Up until now, he still had not known how to reflect on his own actions. In the name of “liking” her, he had taken the high ground and refused to admit his mistakes.
Zhou Cheng’s face had turned pale after hearing Lu Huaiyu’s words.
That man was cold and arrogant, with a seemingly languid and relaxed attitude. His eyes clearly said, “Are you even worthy?”
Most importantly, he had thought about it carefully and now realized that he really was not worthy of Ning Li. Moreover, what he had done was indeed very selfish.
His lips twitched and he finally lowered his head.
“… I’m sorry.”
The office was quiet for a moment.
Geng Haifan came out to smooth things over.
“This… Ning Li, you see this matter here… Zhou Cheng is still a sophomore, after all…”
Ning Li knew what he wanted to say.
Zhou Cheng was the top student of the sophomore year, and he was also a seedling that the school was focused on nurturing.
If possible, they still hoped that they could turn this big issue into a smaller one and reduce the punishment for Zhou Cheng as much as possible.
And the key to this was her.
She nodded and said, “Teacher Geng, Teacher Liu, I’ll leave the follow-up of this matter entirely to the school to handle.”
Geng Haifan asked, “Ning Li, do you mean that… you won’t pursue this matter?”
Although he was asking Ning Li, his eyes were looking at Lu Huaiyu.
It was obvious that Lu Huaiyu was not someone to be trifled with.
Ning Li gave an affirmative answer, her voice calm,
“After all, he didn’t cause any disturbance to me.”
The air froze for a moment.
Everyone could understand what Ning Li meant. She had not even considered Zhou Cheng at all, so why would she be disturbed by this matter?
Zhou Cheng lowered his face, unable to hide his frustration and disappointment.
The two class teachers looked at each other in embarrassment.
Lu Huaiyu, on the other hand, felt the faint coldness around him disappear in an instant.
He glanced at Ning Li and smiled.
This little girl was really smart.
Ning Li sent Lu Huaiyu off.
The sports meet was over, and the last group of people on the field were tidying up.
The two walked side by side. Many people on the campus were looking in their direction, their expressions subtly curious.
Everyone knew that Zhou Cheng had confessed to Ning Li in public. In the end, he had just happened to coincide his actions with the high school senior parent-teacher meeting, and also while Ning Li’s Second Brother had been present.
It seemed that he had just come out of the office, but no one knew what the result had been.
Ning Li followed Lu Huaiyu by his side.
Lu Huaiyu had not said much after leaving the office.
Ning Li really felt that she had been a little bit wronged.
After all, she could not be blamed for this, right?
However, Lu Huaiyu was clearly not in a good mood.
She was the one who invited him over to help with the parent-teacher conference. If not for this, he would not have witnessed this scene.
Ning Li thought for a moment and decided to change the topic.
“Second Brother, what did Teacher Geng tell you at the parent-teacher conference?”
Lu Huaiyu was indifferent.
“He said that in the future, your school will strengthen its management and resolutely prevent similar incidents from happening again so as not to affect other students.”
Ning Li, “…”
She struggled for a moment before speaking up again.
“Then, then about the matter of applying…”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
“Your teacher said that he hopes that you can all perform steadily and get into the ideal university. He would be very happy if you applied to Xijing University. After all, it’s the top university in the country. The classmates and friends you will meet will generally be of a higher quality.”
Ning Li, “…”
Lu Huaiyu was obviously still very reluctant to change the topic of Zhou Cheng to the topic of applying to Xijing University…
She glanced at Lu Huaiyu, feeling a little frustrated. She could not help but mutter and complain in a low voice, “You’re just too difficult to coax…”
Lu Huaiyu stopped in his tracks.
