Jiang Yu took off her makeup and put on clean clothes, and even though her hair was still wet, she felt much more comfortable.
As she walked out of the locker room, Qiu Li was nowhere to be seen in the empty backstage.
She thought of something, and when she arrived in the auditorium, the seats of He Zilu and the others were also empty.
She hurriedly took out her mobile phone and called Qiu Li. After a few seconds, the call was connected, and the boy’s low voice rang out –
“Where are you?”
“The grove in front of the auditorium.”
Jiang Yu seemed to have guessed something, and her heart gradually sank.
In the woods, Qiu Li glanced at the shivering girls in front of his eyes, and said solemnly, “How do you want them to die?”
Jiang Yu covered her mouth as if suffocating, and after a long time, she slowly spit out a few words: “Qiu Li, listen to me…”
“Can’t you figure it out? Then I’ll decide for myself.”
His voice was calm and low, as if he was talking about a trivial matter.
Jiang Yu controlled her trembling mind and said, “Qiu Li, I just want a fair explanation.”
“Don’t worry.” He looked at He Zilu, who was blushing with fright, and smiled lightly: “I will give you a fair answer.”
“But violence is not justice.” Jiang Yu gritted her teeth and said to him word by word: “I will make them pay a more painful price than the pain of flesh and blood. If you do anything to them, you will put me in an unbearable situation, and I will never get the justice I want.”
Qiu Li went silent.
Jiang Yu continued: “They wanted to trample on the dignity of others, insult, hurt… The crimes they committed cannot be made up for by a little pain in the flesh.”
Qiu Li stared at the heads of the quail-like girls in front of him, and after a long time, he muttered, “Go away.”
He Zilu and the others’ legs had already weakened, so they supported each other, as they madly ran towards the auditorium, just like escaping an evil spirit in the dark night, eager to go to a crowded place to seek shelter.
Jiang Yu breathed a sigh of relief.
The fear she had experienced in the few minutes just now was more than all the fears in her life combined. If Qiu Li had really done something to He Zilu… the consequences would have been unimaginable.
After the performance, a few classmates walked off the stage, and when they saw Jiang Yu, they hurriedly gathered around them, and babbled, “Jiang Yu, the dance you just danced was so beautiful!”
“It’s too shocking, I couldn’t close my mouth.”
“I didn’t expect you to be so good at dancing.”
“It was mainly the creativity, it was really great, and it was infectious and your expressive power is superb!”
Teacher Qin Fei strode to the backstage and asked Jiang Yu, “Student Jiang Yu, what’s the matter with you?”
Jiang Yu didn’t know why: “What’s the matter with me? The dance of the time is completely different!”
Teacher Qin Fei said excitedly: “Are you using this method to gain attention!”
Hearing what she said, Jiang Yu’s desire to explain was instantly gone, and instead, there was only disappointment, “Our theme was positivity and sunny, healthy and uplifting, and a harmonious campus.”
Qin Fei continued to accuse: “What is that thing you danced for, decadence, darkness, violence… You are too embarrassing to the school! It’s really embarrassing to the school, you know?”
Jiang Yu looked at her with a trace of sneer in her eyes: “This was not the dance I prepared, does Teacher Qin know why?”
“Don’t you just want to be different from others and catch people’s attention!”
“Because before going on stage, He Zilu poured cold water on my head in the school, and my makeup was also destroyed. Ms. Qin, you say, what can I do.”
Qin Fei was stunned for a while, she did not expect this to have happened. She frowned and said, “What nonsense are you talking about? Let me tell you, He Zilu’s father is the president of Hexiang Real Estate, he is even sitting in the audience. He is our important sponsor. Don’t talk nonsense.”
Jiang Yu sneered, and after a moment: “Really.”
Qin Fei seemed to know that she was right. After a long time, she said embarrassingly: “Your clothes were wet and your makeup was smudged, so you shouldn’t have gone on the stage! You went on the stage, what were you thinking! The image of our school is smeared!”
“Why shouldn’t I attend, is it my fault that I was bullied!”
Jiang Yu stared at her: “Why should I bear the consequences for other people’s mistakes! Why should I give up this opportunity?”
“I warn you, if you bring bad influence to our school, you have to take responsibility!”
After speaking, Teacher Qin Fei left angrily.
Jiang Yu sat on the chair sluggishly, and several classmates around looked at each other, and they all quietly left, leaving her a peaceful and alone space.
She sat alone for a while, then she suddenly saw a figure outside the corridor, so she got up and looked over.
It was Xie Yuan.
Xie Yuan looked at her from a distance, his expression was very complicated, his dark eyes were full of distress and pity, but he was still somewhat restrained and depressed.
Jiang Yu combed her hair, then walked towards Xie Yuan: “Mr. Xie, why are you backstage? I just saw you in the front row, you are welcome…”
Before she finished speaking, Xie Yuan had already taken off his suit and was prepared to put it on Jiang Yu’s thin body.
Jiang Yu instinctively took a step back, avoiding Xie Yuan’s suit.
Indeed, as Jiang Manyi said, Xie Yuan was in his forties and had never married. Although he looked young, she should keep a distance from him after all.
Xie Yuan’s voice was a little hoarse, and he asked, “Just now… have you been bullied?”
When she heard him ask this, for some reason, Jiang Yu’s nose became sour, and her eyes turned red.
She was wronged, really wronged…
“Is it cold or not?”
She lowered her head and shook it gently: “It’s not cold now.”
“Did they beat you?”
She also shook her head, almost speechless, like a lump of lead was choking her throat.
Maybe because she didn’t have a father since she was a child, Jiang Yu felt really uncomfortable facing the care of an elder who was the same age as her father.
Xie Yuan took a step towards her and immediately said, “Don’t get me wrong, this uncle has no wrong intentions for you. You know that my daughter is lost, but I just think you are very similar to her. It makes me sad to see you like this…”
“Thank you, Uncle. I’m fine.”
“Then why are you crying.”
Xie Yuan saw that the corners of her eyes were already filled with water, and tears fell down her cheeks, like raindrops that couldn’t stop under the eaves of the window.
Jiang Yu wiped away her tears with her sleeves, and said with a thick nasal voice: “I saw Mr. Xie, and I just thought that if I had a father, maybe I wouldn’t be bullied. If my father knew this, he would definitely drive away all those bullying guys.”
Xie Yuan couldn’t help feeling distressed when he heard this.
He couldn’t wait to rub the girl into his arms and tell her that Dad was here, Dad would protect you, and no one would bully Xiao Yu anymore.
But the remaining reason in his head told him that he couldn’t say it now, it wasn’t the time.
Xie Yuan’s hand fell on her thin shoulder, pressed it restrainedly, and said in a hoarse voice, “Uncle is in charge of you.”
Jiang Yu knew that Xie Yuan really wanted to help her, and she could trust him.
After hesitating for a few seconds, Jiang Yu took out the phone from the bag and handed it to Xie Yuan.
“When they took me into the cubicle just now, I turned on my mobile phone to record.”
