Chapter 169: I’m Not Blind
"If you are saying this, do you consider all the men introduced to you before this as your boyfriend too? I've always thought that only stallions are kept for selective breeding, but I never knew that mares are put out to stud as well. Zhong Qianqian, you're really an eye-opener."
"Nuannuan, how can you say such unpleasant words? Where has your ladylike demeanor gone? Where's the school etiquette that you've learned? What do you mean by ‘put out to stud'? Is this a term you can use to describe your sister?" Zhong Qianqian seethed.
"Don't you understand? You consider all men who are introduced to you your boyfriends, but when someone else fancies me instead of you, you regard me as the person who robbed you of your partner. Following this line of logic, how many banquets have you attended since you were young, and how many times have you been introduced to someone? If all of these men are your boyfriends, Zhong Qianqian, what are you, if not a breeding horse?"
"You… You still feel in the right even after snatching my boyfriend?"
Zhong Qianqian's body shook with anger. At the same time, Zhong Kuijun felt a sharp headache, wishing that he could just knock Zhong Qianqian's lights out and drag her away.
"I'm not blind yet! Even if I'm blind, I still won't give you a thought!" Chi Yang, who had never spoken up until that moment, uttered those words coldly. His icy gaze stared straight at Zhong Qianqian, which gave her body the chills.
"Hahahaha…" Suddenly, there was a burst of laughter outside the door.
Due to the commotion in the Year 2 Senior class, some classmates from a few other classrooms on the same floor ran over to watch the excitement unfold. When they heard Chi Yang's words, which were like a slap in the face for Zhong Qianqian, the group of people headed by Ye Mengxi laughed wildly.
"Zhong Qianqian, I met Chi Yang on the same day as you, and it's an established fact that Chi Yang fell in love with me instead of you. Chi Yang has been my boyfriend ever since the start, and after your plan to seduce Chi Yang shamelessly failed, you slandered my name everywhere. Have you forgotten that my relationship with Chi Yang is protected by law? If I hear you and your pack of dogs say any more of these remarks, I can prosecute you on the basis of sabotaging a military marriage. When the time comes, we'll let the judge decide whether I've robbed you of your boyfriend!"
"Tsk tsk, so it turns out that this army brother has been Zhong Nuannuan's boyfriend ever since the start!"
"Zhong Qianqian is so vicious, how could she let everyone in school think that her sister had stolen her boyfriend?"
"She's not just vicious, she's also shameless, okay? Didn't you hear that Zhong Qianqian once tried to seduce the army brother with aphrodisiacs?"
"Tsk tsk, this woman maintains the image of a gentle and dignified goddess all day long, but in reality, she's a pretentious hypocrite from an upper-class family. She's just too disgusting."
As she listened to the discussions around her and looked at Zhong Nuannuan's assertive gaze, Zhong Qianqian trembled with anger.
She was about to say something when she heard Chi Yang say, "Apologize to Nuannuan! Otherwise, like I've said before, if you question my relationship with Nuannuan again, and arbitrarily slander the two of us, we'll see you in military court."
Zhong Qianqian's eyes widened. She had never thought that Chi Yang would demand her to apologize in public, or otherwise sue her, just to protect Zhong Nuannuan's image.
Was he still a man?!
All the students looked calmly at Zhong Qianqian. If she apologized, it meant that she had deliberately slandered Zhong Nuannuan all this while, and that she was immoral and two-faced. Subsequently, she would never be able to keep her head up in school ever again. If she refused to apologize, then she might end up in military court. Even if she was not sentenced to jail, the punishment for slandering a military officer, moreover a high-ranked military officer, was not going to be light.
Zhong Qianqian did not know what to do anymore. Only then did she turn her gaze to Zhong Kuijun, as though she wanted her father to come forward and say some good things on her behalf.
