Chu Bai leaned on the railings of the corridor balcony and took a deep breath of the evening breeze, staring at two beauties passing by downstairs, hand in hand.
There were three publicly recognized campus belles in Mizusawa Secondary School, and each of them was from the third year.
One of them was Xu Muyan, and the other two were the same girls who passed by downstairs just now.
If only they could both be my girlfriends.
Chu Bai thought to himself.
At that moment, someone attacked from behind with tremendous force.
Chu Bai almost vomited the dinner he had yesterday.
He turned around in anger and saw that Chen Zishi was the person who attacked him.
“Are you f*cking crazy?” Chu Bai roared in anger, resisting the urge to fight back.
If he hadn’t disciplined himself, he would’ve thrown Chen Zishi to the ground and beat him.
He, Chu Bai, had gotten into numerous fights growing up and hated villains who sneaked up on him from behind and had no martial virtue the most.
“You beast!” Chen Zishi was in a frenzied state and accused him in a furious tone.
“I’m innocent. You’d really trust a woman instead of a brother?”
Seeing Chen Zishi out of control, Chu Bai guessed that Wen Jing must’ve told Chen Zishi what happened.
“Like hell I would believe you!” Chen Zishi cursed.
“You’re a f*cking moron and a retard. You don’t even realize that you’re being deceived. I’m ashamed to have you as a brother. We have nothing to do with each other anymore!” Chu Bai replied with rage.
“You dog! You’re worse than a beast. I won’t treat you as my brother.”
[Ding! The Host successfully manipulated events behind the scenes, making the Protagonist Chu Bai and the important supporting character Chen Zishi turn against each other. Received 300 Villain Points. Chu Bai’s Protagonist’s Halo decreased by -20 while the Host’s Villain’s Halo increased by +20]
Wang Haoran nodded his head in satisfaction after receiving the system’s message.
He had successfully carried out his plan.
After the evening study, students and teachers were ready to go back to their homes.
To avoid suspicion, Song Zhenyu stayed in the office a while longer, like she did yesterday.
Wang Haoran took advantage of the gap and prepared to send Wen Jing home.
In the car.
“Honey, I have completed all the tasks according to your instructions. Are you satisfied?” Wen Jing asked with a sweet smile.
“You did a great job.” Wang Haoran praised Wen Jing and looked at her slightly red eyes.
“Are you okay?”
“It doesn’t hurt anymore.” Wen Jing shook her head nonchalantly.
As long as she could carry out Wang Haoran’s instructions, her suffering was nothing.
Wang Haoran took out his cell phone and transferred 180,000 yuan to Wen Jing as a reward.
Wen Jing was dumbfounded.
Her family’s yearly income was only 50,000 to 60,000 yuan, and her monthly allowance was around two or three hundred yuan.
180,000 yuan was definitely a massive amount of money for Wen Jing.
Because she could be with the boy she loved and spend so much money, Wen Jing felt that she made a wise decision in following Wang Haoran.
“Let me take you back.”
Wang Haoran was about to ask the driver to start the car.
However, Wen Jing suddenly held Wang Haoran’s hand and said with affection.
“Honey, I miss you so much…”
“Have you recovered?”
“Then it would be better to send you back home. You’ve cried for so long today, aren’t you tired?
“I… I am fine with it.” Wen Jing hung her head low and replied.
“Then I’ll send you to the hotel before me. I have something to do so I’ll come after a while.”
Wang Haoran felt that his father could foresee the future since he had given him the black gold VIP card.
With it, he didn’t even need to book a room in advance; he could just go directly and be done with it.
Wen Jing nodded her head happily and hurriedly took out her cell phone to make a call to her family.
Xu Muyan returned home and took a shower to sweep away the day’s fatigue.
She passed by the living room and saw her dad busy watching TV.
“Dad, I’m going to my room to sleep.” Xu Muyan said.
“Yan Yan, wait a minute. Dad has something to tell you.” Father Xu called her.
“What is it that you want to talk about?” Xu Muyan was a little curious.
“There’s a guy named Chu Bai in your class, right?”
“Yes, dad, how did you know?”
“I saw him in the bureau.”
“What did he do?”
“He didn’t do anything bad.” Xu’s father shook his head, and a look of appreciation passed over his face.
“A student from your school reported a gang of miscreants. You should already know this. I was the one who handled that case, and the student who reported them was Chu Bai.”
“Oh, it was him.” Xu Muyan replied in a flat tone.
“Yan Yan, you seem to dislike this Chu Bai. Is there any particular reason?”
“He tried to molest my friend. I hate him so much that I want to beat him.”
“Did something like that really happen? Tell me the situation in detail.” Father Xu said.
Xu Muyan told her father what she heard from Wen Jing.
“Your friend just heard his voice and touched the molester’s hair. That doesn’t prove that it was Chu Bai.” Father Xu’s police instincts kicked in.
“But he already admitted it.”
“According to how you described it, all the evidence clearly points to Chu Bai. The girl took the initiative and de-escalated the incident and let Chu Bai apologize to her. It was to avoid making trouble for Chu Bai, which is quite normal.”
“Dad, how come you seem to be quite defensive of this Chu Bai?” Xu Muyan was puzzled.
“Although I have only met this Chu Bai once, I can be sure that he is not that kind of person. There must have been some kind of misunderstanding here.” Father Xu said.
Could it be that Jing Jing was really mistaken? This thought suddenly popped up in Xu Muyan’s head.
Because of the nature of his work, her father dealt with all kinds of unruly people every day and was very accurate in gauging people.
Xu Muyan naturally trusted her father’s judgment.
However, she also trusted her best friend, who had no reason to lie.
But now that the matter was resolved, she no longer cared about it.
Xu Muyan shook off her mixed thoughts and asked.
“Dad, why did you suddenly bring up this Chu Bai?”
“Ah, It’s so silly, I almost forgot about it while talking with you.” Father Xu slapped his forehead, then pointed his finger at the phone on the tea table.
“Chu Bai just called you. I told him you were taking a shower and promised to let you call him when you finished.”
“Huh?” Xu Muyan was reluctant.
“You don’t want dad to break his promise, do you?…” Father Xu stretched out his hands.
Xu Muyan had no choice but to make a call and put it on speaker.
Chu Bai, on the other end, picked up the call within a few seconds.
“Is it uncle or Xu Muyan?”
“It’s Yan Yan.” Father Xu replied in his daughter’s stead.
Xu Muyan couldn’t help but give her father a blank stare, then spoke lightly.
“What do you want?”
“Xu Muyan, I really didn’t do anything to Wen Jing. I was wrongly accused!” Chu Bai hurriedly explained.
Since Wen Jing told Chen Zishi about the incident, Xu Muyan, who was Wen Jing’s best friend, would definitely know about it as well.
Chu Bai wasn’t afraid of falling out with Chen Zishi, but he was worried about Xu Muyan being disgusted by him.
Therefore after the evening study, Chu Bai guessed that Xu Muyan would be able to use her cell phone after she arrived home, so he immediately called her to explain the truth.
“His tone is firm and he speaks without any stuttering. He must be telling the truth.” Father Xu’s police instincts kicked in once again, and he couldn’t help but comment to his daughter.
“Yan Yan, it is likely that this young man, Chu Bai, is really innocent.”
“Thank you, Uncle Xu! Xu Muyan, you also believe I am innocent, right?” Chu Bai asked clearly excitedly over the phone.
“It doesn’t matter anymore. You’d better focus on the joint examination we have in a few days.” Xu Muyan said as she didn’t really want to dwell on this matter anymore.
“I’m not worried about the joint exam. I’ve been studying hard for it. I can get into at least the top ten of the class.” Chu Bai was bursting with self-confidence.
“You’re just bragging!” Xu Muyan pouted.
The top ten students in the class were all students who had a thorough knowledge of every line in the book and were beings that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Although Chu Bai, who used to be the bottom ranker in the class, scored a lot better on the last monthly exam, he nevertheless belonged to the ‘poor students’ category. It was simply impossible for him to get in the top ten so easily.
“I’m not just bragging. If you don’t believe me we should make a bet. If I can get into the top ten in the class, you’ll be my girlfriend. If I lose, I’ll do whatever you tell me to. Do you dare agree?” Chu Bai asked.
