At this point, Chu Jingnan rushed over after hearing about it. When he saw Jiang Yuqian and Xia Ruxue lying on the ground, he couldn’t help but become stunned before looking up towards Wen Xinya.
She was wearing the long dress that she wore previously and had yet to remove the makeup on her face—the extremely enchanting made up face made her look even more exceedingly beautiful. That prideful and majestic poise of hers had an inborn elegance. She radiated astonishing charm, as if everyone was reduced to merely insignificant ants.
He frowned in disapproval at a Wen Xinya like this. However, when he recalled her wearing the bright red dress and dancing the intense Paso Doble previously—that peerlessly attractive, proud, and majestic poise—he couldn’t help but feel bewitched by her, like a moth darting into flames.
Looking at this situation, he vaguely understood—Wen Xinya was changing her clothes when Jiang Yuqian and Xia Ruxue barged in suddenly. At a public dressing room, this was not allowed—hence, Wen Xinya was provoked.
At the student union office last time, everyone was present when Wen Xinya slapped Jiang Ruoyin. Thus, it did not come as a surprise to him for Wen Xinya to physically hit someone.
“Big Brother Chu!” Seeing her Chu Jingnan, Xia Ruya’s huge eyes fogged up with layers and layers of turmoil as she looked straight at him. Her pale face had faint traces of tears and her tender lips were plumped up from her biting—her red, plumped up lips made her look frail with a tinge of seductiveness.
“What happened?” Chu Jingnan asked in a deep voice, feigning ignorance, his usually graceful voice exuding an unchallengeable and commanding aura. His gaze landed on Xia Ruya but was attracted by her frail and tender poise. Pale and weak with a tinge of seductiveness, like a beauty dressed in mourning white, especially enchanting.
Xia Ruya looked at Chu Jingnan and teared up before she spoke. “Big Brother Chu, Qianqian and Ruxue barged in when Xinya was changing. Indeed, they were in the wrong, but Xinya also shouldn’t have hit them so hard until they can’t get up from the ground.”
Xia Ruya’s words admitted her own and pointed out their mistakes and did not even mention the performance incident earlier. Even Wen Xinya couldn’t help but cheer for her.
Chu Jingnan looked towards Wen Xinya, his gaze questioning and aggressive. “Is it true?”
Wen Xinya curled her lips up coldly. “Miss Xia, your skill of turning facts upside down is utterly astonishing. So many people are watching out there and you have the shame to say that I’ve hit them too hard.”
Xia Ruya’s face became even paler as her frail frame shook non-stop, like a white lotus flower swaying freely in the wind. “It’s a fact that they’re unable to get up from the ground now. You still wish to deny?”
Wen Xinya sneered and said, “Why are they unable to get up from the ground—don’t you know? Or are you purposely confusing everyone’s memories?”
Xia Ruya suddenly widened her eyes and stared at Wen Xinya, unable to utter any word.
Wen Xinya’s gaze looked towards the entrance and landed on a girl as she asked, “Why are they unable to get up from the ground—haven’t you seen everything happen just now, why don’t you say it for everyone to hear!”
Watched by Wen Xinya’s pair of clear and intimidating eyes, that girl almost instinctively opened her mouth and said, “Jiang Yuqian and Xia Ruxue were unhappy that they were hit for barging into the dressing room. Thus, they pounced onto Wen Xinya to assault her like madwomen. Eventually, they were injured by Wen Xinya.”
Wen Xinya’s gaze shifted onto Xia Ruya and looked at her as if she were an idiot. “To not retaliate when being hit and not rebut when being scolded—I don’t have such a noble quality. Since you’re standing up for Jiang Yuqian and Xia Ruxue like this, you should have such a quality.”
“Psst! To not retaliate when being hit and not rebut when being scolded—how stupid!” Someone below burst out laughing.
Xia Ruya’s face turned even paler as her body shook, almost unable to remain standing.
Yet, Wen Xinya was unrelenting and refused to give in the least bit as she said in a cold and harsh voice, “I recall that the student union’s management regulations of the school’s anniversary celebrations mention that during preparations, no one is allowed to enter the dressing room on her own accord without permission. They barged in when I was changing. Thankfully, I reacted fast. Otherwise…” Her gaze swept past the crowd gathered at the entrance watching the show—the meaning in her voice was understood without being spoken.
Upon thinking that because of Jiang Yuqian’s and Xia Ruxue’s actions, Wen Xinya could have been totally exposed in plain sight to others, a sense of fury instantly arose in Chu Jingnan’s heart. However, none of it was shown on the surface.
With a strong and upright aura backed by the masses, Wen Xinya’s looked towards Xia Ruya with a frivolous gaze with a hint of coldness, yet with a smile on her lips. “I think Miss Xia is a member of the student union! The regulations were set by the student union and a member of the student union openly disregarded the student union’s management regulations by barging into the dressing room on her own accord without permission—this should count as knowingly leading in committing misconduct. Wonder how President Chu intends to deal with this?”
Xia Ruya suddenly raised her head, her pale face filled with stubborn anger. “You—this is bringing suit to your victim.”
Originally, it was Jiang Yuqian and Xia Ruxue being hit—forget it if that was exposed. She did not expect Wen Xinya to actually drag her in the fire—Wen Xinya was really ruthless.
However, Wen Xinya did not even look at her. Her gaze glimmered with a dominant aura. “The honorable President Chu, you better think it through! If you don’t take disciplinary action and students in the Institute mirror the behavior, it’ll threaten the privacy of the performing students to a certain extent, which will adversely impact the entire Institute!”
Xia Ruya suddenly widened her eyes. Just like this, she looked at Chu Jingnan with her shimmery eyes covered in fog, speechless and sobbing. “Big Brother Chu, Xinya’s right. It’s me who failed to think thoroughly and violated the management regulations set by the student union. I’m willing to be punished!”
Xia Ruxue’s eyes reddened in anger. “President Chu, obviously it was Wen Xinya who used underhanded methods to perform on-stage with Ruya, raising to fame at the expense of Ruya. Why is Ruya wrong in the end—I’m not convinced!”
Jiang Yuqian added, “Exactly. If someone is getting punished, it should be Wen Xinya. Ruya isn’t in the wrong at all!”
Upon hearing Xia Ruxue’s words, Chu Jingnan frowned slightly as he looked towards the downcast Xia Ruya. In that instant, a possibility became increasingly clear in his mind—if he were still ignorant that he had been exploited by Wen Xinya, he would have wasted his life.
Wen Xinya exploited his feelings for her, that he lowered his guard towards her, and thus utilized him to plot against Xia Ruya! Furthermore, she was very successful at it.
With things progressing to such a stage, if he admitted Xia Ruxue’s words, his post on the discussion forums would become proof of his mistake. If he did not admit to Xia Ruxue’s words, it would be unfair to Xia Ruya. At this point, he actually felt at a loss.
“Ruxue, stop talking. This incident is our mistake. I’m willing to be punished!” Xia Ruya was sobbing, but her tone revealed determination.
Xia Ruxue and Jiang Yuqian wanted to speak further but were stopped by Xia Ruya’s glance.
