Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
When the news on Shen Mengting was exposed, the entire Lan Feng Institute was shocked. Students who were familiar with Shen Mengting could not believe that the honest Shen Mengting who came from a poor background would actually take drugs…
The police station had delivered Shen Mengting’s drug test result to Lan Feng Institute which was proven to be positive through her urine test. Furthermore, there were traces in her blood as well to confirm the fact that she had indeed taken drugs for pleasure.
The principal of Lan Feng Institute held an assembly for the entire school, expressing his grief towards the actions of Shen Mengting as well as to deliver a thought-provoking lesson to all the students. Finally, it was announced that Shen Mengting would be expelled from the Institute and be blacklisted from all other colleges such that she could never enroll in them.
Now that things had developed to this point, it was as good as Shen Mengting digging her own grave.
When Wen Xinya was done with her lunch after the afternoon lesson, she received a message from Chu Jingnan to join the student meeting for a while. Wen Xinya deduced that it might be related to Jiang Ruoyin.
Jiang Ruoyin was absent from school today, but there was no news of her being expelled from the Institute. She knew that things must be more complicated than they thought.
Wen Xinya sneered as she headed for the student meeting.
It was quiet at the student meeting. In the huge hall, there was a lady in her thirties talking to Chu Jingnan with her legs crossed elegantly. She had a hairdo and delicate makeup on her face and was dressed in a tailor-made Chanel suit.
Sitting right beside her was Jiang Ruoyin. When she saw Wen Xinya, she smirked, looking all pleased with herself.
Wen Xinya could recognize that woman at one glance. She was Jiang Ruoyin’s mother, Su Jinshan. Su Jinshan was not just another housewife, but a strong businesswoman. She was the current general manager of the Su Family Organization and held as much power as the chairman.
When Wen Xinya walked over, Su Jinshan’s gaze naturally landed on her and began sizing her up. She was oppressive and had a strong aura, all which Wen Xinya found detestable.
Wen Xinya showed no interest in Su Jinshan. Looking straight at Chu Jingnan, she asked, “Does president Chu have any business with me? Does the president not know that it’s our afternoon break now?”
Chu Jingnan looked at her stiffly. “This here is Jiang Ruoyin’s mother, Madam Su Jinshan. She hoped to meet you for a discussion regarding Jiang Ruoyin’s expulsion.”
Wen Xinya took a quick glance at Su Jinshan before turning back to Chu Jingnan. “If it’s about that, there’s no need for any discussion. I’m never going to change my mind.”
Chu Jingnan frowned. He did not give a reply while subconsciously turning to look at Su Jinshan.
Su Jinshan did not utter a single word ever since Wen Xinya walked through the door. Her beautiful eyes were focused on sizing Wen Xinya up and she was taken aback by her. After being in the business for so many years, she carried an air of superiority wherever she went. Countless people whom she met had to walk on eggshells around her, yet a rotten brat like that was able to stand up to her.
However, she controlled herself and remained calm, not revealing the slightest hint of her interest in Wen Xinya.
Su Jinshan carefully observed her. At first glance, she thought she resembled her mother, Mo Yunyao, in the sense that they both could maintain calm and collected no matter what they were facing.
However, on a closer look, they were not exactly alike. Mo Yunyao was peaceful, but Wen Xinya was composed. She was then reminded of Old Mr. Mo.
She felt a little shaken. The young lady of the Wen Family was indeed extraordinary, no wonder Ruoyin could not go against her.
“Since president Chu has nothing else to say, I’ll be leaving now.” Wen Xinya was not in the mood to stand here and receive people’s stares, so she turned to leave.
“Miss Wen, I’ve heard a lot about you!” Su Jinshan finally let out a sound.
Wen Xinya’s legs came to a stop, and she turned around slowly to face her. “Madam Jiang, nice to meet you!”
Su Jinshan smiled. “Our Jiang family have done business with the Wen Family before. Calling me Madam Jiang is like treating us as strangers. If you don’t mind, you can call me Aunt Su!”
Wen Xinya frowned silently. Su Jinshan was playing the familiarity card so that she would be forced to give her face when it came to the matter regarding Ruoyin. Su Jinshan was indeed a difficult person to handle.
She looked directly at Su Jinshan. “President Chu mentioned that you have business with me? May I know what business?”
Su Jinshan’s smile faded and her expression turned cold. She didn’t expect it to be so difficult to get along with Wen Xinya. “If that’s the case, I’ll cut to the chase. I hope that you can give up on the idea of having the Institute expel our Ruoyin.”
Her words carried weight. Her tone was polite yet cold, but mostly commanding.
Wen Xinya smirked and looked at her playfully. “May I ask, is that a request or an order?”
Tsk! Such sharp words! Su Jinshan’s expression changed once again. There was no way she could say it was a request. After all, she held more seniority over her and was even the Madam of the Jiang family, who was also the general manager of the Jiang Corporation. She would lose all her dignity asking for a request from a little brat. However, she couldn’t admit that it was an order as well. She still had to be considerate of the fact that Wen Xinya was the eldest daughter of the Wen Family and its only successor.
Su Jinshan was unable to grasp Xinya’s mind. Thus, her tone became gentler as she replied, “I’ve asked Ruoyin previously and she admitted that she had misunderstood the truth. It was not her intention to harm you. I’ve already reprimanded her. Furthermore, all the hate comments are being directed to Ruoyin now on the school forum. She’s received enough punishment.”
Using just a few words to get Ruoyin out of her predicament… She was not going to let it be that easy. Wen Xinya replied with a smile, “It seems like Madam Jiang is not very clear about what exactly happened. You can ask any student here in Lan Feng Institute and they will tell you everything honestly. Also, I’ve never once gone online to leave any replies ever since Miss Jiang posted fake news on the forum. The way everybody is hating on her on the forum now was entirely caused by herself. It has nothing to do with me.”
When she was done speaking, she frowned slightly. Her eyebrows looked astonishingly fierce while her eyes were cold, giving an icy glare that sent chills down one’s spine. She continued, “My request for the Institute to expel Miss Jiang is me fighting back.”
Su Jinshan gasped. Wen Xinya was giving off such a strong and fierce aura, it made her think of Old Mr. Wen. She couldn’t help but feel slightly intimidated.
Wen Xinya maintained her aura as she sat down slowly on the sofa and started tapping on the coffee table with her fingers indifferently.
The dull and hollow “tok tok” sound was annoying, making people uncomfortable from their head to their toe. Su Jinshan blurted out irritatedly, “What do you want?”
