Chapter 170: Skyrocketing Combat Strength
Zhong Kuijun had already felt very humiliated. In addition to this, she had already ruined her chances with Aiden and Gu Mingzhe, so how could he dare to offend Chi Yang just to help her? Hence, he simply turned his head to the side and avoided looking at her.
"All of you are just too much!"
Zhong Qianqian shouted, then she rushed out crying.
While she applauded her own wits for not having to apologize, Zhong Qianqian also felt truly aggrieved.
"Haha!" In the face of such an outcome, the onlooking students burst into laughter.
After Zhong Qianqian ran away, Chi Yang immediately directed his spearhead at Wu Wenqian and Li Shanshan.
"Chairman Li, what do you plan to do with these two students?"
"Students like this are no longer worthy of the ‘scholarship student' title anymore, and also contradict our original concept of introducing scholarship students. Such students…"
"Sorry, Zhong Nuannuan, it was our fault earlier, and I apologize."
Li Shanshan was the first to step forward. When Wu Wenqian saw this, she quickly apologized as well. "Yes, we were wrong earlier."
"We did that because we all thought that you were the one who had stolen Qianqian's boyfriend. Now that everything has been clarified, we won't say such things to you anymore."
Chi Yang sneered. "Since the two of you have good academic records, and are top students, then you must know that there's a crime known as defamation! Not all apologies are worthy of forgiveness. Your malicious speech earlier had already caused harm to Nuannuan. Although the two of you are still students, you're already almost 18 years old, or may have even passed the age of 18, and you already possess the ability to fully pay for your actions. Since you believe everything Zhong Qianqian says, if Zhong Qianqian tells you to kill people, will the two of you immediately become executioners?"
Zhong Nuannuan looked at Chi Yang, who was reprimanding the students harshly, and felt that his verbal assault ability had gone through the roof.
This was always the case with her Chi Yang—he was fine whenever he was wronged, but he would never tolerate her suffering any injustice.
As she watched him act an old hen protecting its chicks, Zhong Nuannuan's heart almost bubbled over with warmth.
Faced with Chi Yang's harsh inquiry, both students went mute and did not dare to answer. Their heads were almost buried into their chests.
"Principal Wei, expel these two students immediately." Chairman Li ordered.
Wu Wenqian and Li Shanshan were shocked to the core, unable to even shed their tears. All they could do was stare blankly at the group of people standing in front of the podium, who were all wearing suits and leather shoes.
However, at the end of the day, Chi Yang was a soldier. The integrity in his bones made him feel angry, but he was still unable to watch the former top and third-highest scorers in the high school entrance examination fall to their demise just like that. After a moment of silence, he said,
"Although there's no need to go to the point of expulsion, their punishment should be severe. Otherwise, if every student in the school continues to defame Nuannuan like this, how is she going to live?"
"Yes. If so, what do you think is a better way of resolving this issue, director-general Chi?" Chairman Li asked modestly.
"A record of demerit must be written, and they must do extensive self-reflection and a public apology to Nuannuan in front of all the students and teachers in school. They also have to clean the toilets for one semester."
Wu Wenqian and Li Shanshan were stunned!
The students laughed. "…Hahahaha! This army brother is so cute!"
At the same time, Zhong Nuannuan thought, ‘…The toilets at the military base must be very clean!'
Chi Yang took out a piece of paper from his briefcase. "This is a photocopy of the court's Judgement. I hope that the school can clear Nuannuan's name at an important morning assembly. If I were to find out again that someone used this issue to criticize Nuannuan, call Nuannuan a murderer, or spread rumors, as a family member, I will legally prosecute that person for defamation."
