Chapter 416 - 416 I Will Pass On This Painting!
416 I Will Pass On This Painting!
The students immediately went into an uproar and started whispering to each other.
“Why haven’t I seen Second Miss Xie having a helpful personality in the past?”
“That’s right. I still remember that she stole the princess’s white tiger cub and wanted to frame Prince Xuan’s heir.”
Jiang Xiaoran knocked on the table and called out, “Teacher, did you see it with your own eyes? Otherwise, I’d find this hard to believe!”
The teacher glared and pretended to reprimand them, “Second Miss Xie does not need to lie about such things, right? If that’s the case, her character would be too bad. Our school won’t have such a student.”
Gu Nuo’er raised her long lashes and looked at the teacher.
She let out a small sigh.
The teacher’s words were spoken too early.
After the eldest daughter of the Xie family, Xie Yinxiang heard the teacher’s words, she immediately looked at Gu Nuo’er.
She was very puzzled.
Why did this matter sound so similar to what Nuo’er had just told her about helping an unconscious old man?
Ever since Xie Liuhua wanted to steal Gu Nuo’er’s white tiger the last time,
Everyone started to doubt her character.
No matter what arrangements the teacher made, he couldn’t convince everyone.
In the end, Xie Liuhua felt aggrieved and cried.
“I didn’t want to tell the teacher the truth at first, but I came late and had no choice but to explain myself. I will pass on this painting!”
As she spoke, she wiped the corners of her eyes with a handkerchief. Her eyes were red.
Seeing her like this, the teacher came to a decision.
“Don’t argue anymore. When Painter Dai comes later, I’ll explain the matter to him. If the old master thinks that Second Miss Xie is worth giving away the painting to, then everyone won’t have anything to complain about!”
Gu Nuo’er turned to look at the crying Xie Liuhua with her black and watery eyes.
Xie Liuhua also glanced over from the corner of her eye. For some reason, when she saw Gu Nuo’er’s clear and cold eyes, she looked away guiltily.
Xie Liuhua comforted herself in her heart.
That old man had taken her benefits. This time, even if it was Gu Nuo’er’s credit, she would definitely snatch it!
At that time, if Gu Nuo’er dared to refute, she would say that the princess was petty!
After a while, heavy footsteps came from the door. Occasionally, there was the sound of walking sticks hitting the ground.
The teacher hurriedly went out to welcome the person.
“Old Master Dai, you’re here… Ah! What happened to your forehead?”
When the students heard the sound, they craned their necks curiously and looked in the direction of the door.
The teacher helped an old man into the classroom shakily.
The old man was holding a white handkerchief in his hand and pressing it onto his forehead. There was a faint trace of blood seeping out of the handkerchief.
He didn’t look worried and seemed to be slightly angry.
The first thing he said after entering the class was, “When I saw the beautiful red sun this morning, I brought my brush and paper out, wanting to draw this beautiful scenery.
“However, on the way back, I was thirsty and hot and collapsed with a pale countenance. A young lady saved me, but she only helped me up.
“After that, she left without a care. I got up and left, but I lost my balance and fell. That’s why I fell a second time!”
Gu Nuo’er tilted her head and frowned.
This old man was the person she had saved this morning.
However, how could the old man be injured?
Could it be that after she left, the old man fell again?
However, Old Master Dai was not looking at her. Instead, his gaze swept across Xie Liuhua, who was sitting there.
Xie Liuhua’s eyes were filled with anxiety.
She grabbed onto her handkerchief tightly under her sleeves.
She bit her lip and stared at Old Master Dai.
Why did this old thing not do as she asked after receiving her money?!
