Chapter 193 - I'll Reason With You With a Rod
Gu Nuo’er blinked. “Miss Xue, if you think that I’m the one who did something to the building, may I know when I had the time to do that?
“I was planting my flower all morning. Didn’t you keep saying that my flower would definitely die? Could it be that you were talking to a ghost?
“After I was done planting the flower, it started raining heavily and I came to eat. If you want to say that Elder Brother Siming was the one who did it, he was also playing cuju earlier.
“Many of these older brothers here can testify to that. Why am I so bad in your eyes? Are you unhappy with me?”
Although Gu Nuo’er was young, her reasoning was very clear and she presented her points orderly.
Her voice was soft and pleasant, making everyone secretly admire her.
When many people heard what Gu Nuo’er said, they whispered to each other.
“Xue Yumeng even went up to the princess to curse that her flower was going to die when the princess was just planting a flower. How vicious is she to be doing something like this? Isn’t it too vicious to treat a child?”
“That’s right. But Xue Yumeng’s uncle is the East Defender General. I heard from my father that the East Defender General embezzled the military funds and was discovered by the princess.
“Therefore, the East Defender General received a heavy punishment from His Majesty. This must be the reason why Xue Yumeng hates the princess.”
“Pfft, how shameless. Her family member was the one who had done something wrong, but she harbored hatred toward an innocent person instead. Xue Yumeng is really good at playing the blame game.”
Xue Yumeng had thought that everyone would share her hatred and suspect the princess’s motives.
After all, although Gu Nuo’er had a noble status, she didn’t have any friends in the state school. Who would speak up for her?
However, she did not expect everyone to be on Gu Nuo’er’s side!
Xue Yumeng was furious and did not know how to refute Gu Nuo’er’s words. She was so angry that her entire body was trembling and she no longer carried herself like a lady.
The headmaster wore an angry expression and scolded, “Miss Xue, why aren’t you apologizing to the princess?”
“She’s the one in the wrong! She saw that I fell and didn’t care about me! Why should I apologize to her?!”
As expected, Xue Yumeng’s reaction was very intense.
Gu Nuo’er fluttered her long eyelashes, her watery eyes glistening. Her red cheeks made her look even more cute and petite.
The child waved her hand. “Headmaster uncle, I don’t need her to apologize.”
In the next second, Gu Nuo’er’s tone changed. “Although I’m young, I know that one can’t be too self-centered.
“Miss Xue kept saying that I should have helped her but never mentioned that when I was working hard to plant the flower, she had said many vicious words to me.
“She even came rushing over to say offensive things to me just now. I didn’t want to hold a grudge. After all, if I get angry, she’s going to say that I’m suppressing others with my identity again.
“However, her attitude is so rude and unreasonable, and she is unrepentant despite knowing that she was in the wrong. Therefore, I’ve decided to teach her a lesson. Since she refuses to apologize, I’ll punish her on the grounds of having offended a princess.”
After saying that, Gu Nuo’er cupped her small hands to her mouth and shouted, “Elder Brother Zhang Sui, come out and take her away! Deal with her however you’re supposed to!”
As soon as she finished speaking, Zhang Sui came down from the roof. No one even saw how he had sneaked up earlier.
Immediately after, four to five hidden guards appeared one after another.
They followed Gu Nuo’er’s instructions and dragged Xue Yumeng away.
Xue Yumeng screamed in panic, “Gu Nuo’er, you’re arrogant and despotic! You’re not worthy of being a princess!”
When the child heard this, she spread out her hands and sighed. “I knew it. She’ll still hate me regardless if I hit her or not. Baby Nuo is in such a predicament.
“Elder Brother Zhang Sui, hit her a few more times then. Uncle and Auntie Xue didn’t teach her how to respect others, but I believe that the rod will explain it clearly to her.”
