Chapter 55: Chilling Moments, Sister Yue Substitute Teaching
After that incident, Hu Ben specifically had Little Six investigate the group of bodyguards.
They belonged to a local security company and were currently employed by the Li family, so he roughly understood the Li family’s background.
Combined with the words he had forced out of the bodyguards that day, he seemed to understand Jiang Fuyue’s intention for him to go and stop them.
But what about after that?
What would she do?
This thought only flashed through Hu Ben’s mind for a moment before disappearing.
He thought he must have gone crazy!
Even if Jiang Fuyue was a bit clever for a high school student, what could she do against such a powerful entity like the Li family?
They could crush you with a stomp of their foot, and in the end, all you could do was swallow your anger.
But just three minutes ago, when Hu Ben saw the contents of the newspaper and confirmed it multiple times, he was not only shocked, but also felt a pain in his face.
“The Truth Behind the Suicide of Zhan Yating: The Result of Campus Bullying, the Capture of Two Murder Suspects” – the news headline was printed in large letters, making it especially eye-catching.
It described the detailed process of the entire incident at length, from the exposure of the bullying video to the outbreak of public opinion, and finally to the Li couple being sentenced. The once unshakable giant tree was uprooted like this.
Hu Ben’s scalp tingled. He had a strong intuition that Jiang Fuyue was involved in this matter!
There was no reason, no basis, just his instinctive sensitivity to danger and the unknown!
“Hey, brother, why did you just leave like that? Aren’t we going to get the money?”
He turned around and sneered, “Not afraid of death, go ahead.”
“It’s not… just asking for money, why is it a matter of life and death?”
Rushing back home, without saying a word, Hu Ben rushed in and drank two glasses of cold water.
His mother couldn’t help but nag again, “Don’t drink untreated water, I’ve told you guys countless times…”
Usually, Hu Ben would retort a few words, but now he didn’t say a word, propping his hands on the table and panting.
Fear, panic, and anxiety… various emotions flooded over him like a tide.
He finally calmed down after what felt like an eternity, turned around and went to the living room, sitting on the sofa and lighting a cigarette.
Suddenly, the bedroom door opened from the inside, and a sleepy little chubby boy walked out, his eyes brightened when he saw his idol, “Brother! You didn’t go out?”
“Mm.” Hu Ben put out his cigarette, stood up, “Quick, wash your face, eat breakfast, and I’ll take you to school.”
“Yay! Big brother, can you help me teach Jiang Chenxing a lesson? He’s so annoying, always telling on me and getting me punished by the teacher…”
Hu Ben casually agreed, it was just a warning or a threat, all routine operations.
However, that name…
Hu Ben felt it familiar, “Who do you want me to teach a lesson to?”
“Jiang Chenxing! Last time it was his sister who brought people to beat me,” the chubby boy grabbed his pants leg and his eyes glittered, “Brother, have you already dealt with her?”
“…” Hu Ben felt like fainting on the spot.
In the end, the little chubby boy left in tears, with a big question in his little heart-why did his big brother suddenly fly into a rage? He even warned him not to bully Jiang Chenxing in the future, or he would beat him up? Boo-hoo!
Is life finally going to come after him, this little homebody?
“Zheng Yonglin! Why do you always look at Jiang Chenxing?” The girl at the same table blinked curiously.
The little chubby boy looked away and didn’t speak.
“Oh! I know, are you thinking of hitting him again? You can’t, the teacher said you can’t fight, otherwise they will call your parents, your parents will scold you, and you might even get beaten…”
Ignoring the chattering of his classmate, the little chubby boy stared at his plump little fists, lost in thought – should he hit him or not?
The dilemma of Hu Ben’s brothers was unknown to Jiang Fuyue and her brother.
As the training camp progressed, the pressure on everyone grew.
After Hou Siyuan vomited, another student fainted on the spot.
The school doctor pointed at Meng Zhijian, “Day by day, if you don’t make these children sick, are you teachers not comfortable?”
“Cough…special circumstances, it shouldn’t be that serious, right?”
“Are you a doctor, or am I a doctor?”
Meng Zhijian faltered, “You, you are…”
“Old Meng,” the school doctor’s tone suddenly became serious, “we can’t go on like this.”
Returning to the office, he repeated what he had heard to Yu Wenzhou verbatim. Yu Wenzhou let out a deep sigh and said, “Forcing the growth of plants is definitely not a good solution. We need to find another way.”
“You say it so easily, but do you have any ideas?” he replied.
“We have seven days left, but the overall progress is a quarter behind schedule. If we want to catch up, we can only work even harder…”
“No way!” interrupted Meng Zhijian. “It’s already tough enough, and you want to work even harder? Do you want the whole class to end up in the infirmary?”
“What’s the rush? I haven’t finished talking yet…Working harder definitely won’t work. You can’t achieve good results by being too greedy. Even if we catch up with the progress, the final outcome may not be so good.”
After discussing for a while, the two of them still couldn’t come up with a solution.
“Forget it, I’ll go to class first.”
Meng Zhijian stepped into the classroom with the bell ringing, and stopped when he saw Hou Siyuan. He wanted to ask how he was adapting recently, but he saw the kid frantically copying from a notebook.
“…Teacher Meng?” Student Hou looked up hesitantly.
“Still feeling sick? Can you keep up with the progress?” asked Meng Zhijian.
“I can keep up, and I’m not feeling sick anymore.”
“Okay, that’s good. What are you copying?”
“Hints on important exam topics and predicted questions,” replied Hou Siyuan.
“Huh?” Did he and Old Yu summarize this kind of thing?
Meng Zhijian walked over to take a look, and his expression grew increasingly grave and serious. “Who made this?”
“Liu Bowen.” Hou Siyuan pointed to the left.
Meng Zhijian’s inquiring gaze followed Hou Siyuan’s finger.
Liu Bowen: “Sister Yue highlighted the key points and marked the questions, and I just compiled them into my notebook.”
At that moment, Jiang Fuyue walked in from outside, ready to return to her seat.
Meng Zhijian suddenly had a bold and crazy idea…
Five minutes later.
“What? Jiang Fuyue substitute teaching? Is she capable?” When Meng Zhijian finished speaking, everyone had the same doubt in their minds.
It wasn’t that they had any issues with Jiang Fuyue; she was certainly strong and always the first to finish and get full marks on every test. But “doing” and “teaching” were two different things.
Meng Zhijian guessed their concerns but didn’t say much. He said, “There’s a teacher’s workshop in the city that Teacher Yu will be attending. So, we’ll temporarily arrange for Jiang Fuyue to teach today. Otherwise, you won’t be able to achieve anything by self-studying.”
The physics competition was difficult, and unless you were a genius, self-studying was useless.
“Okay, that’s decided then. Jiang Fuyue, come up,” he said, decisively.
After Meng Zhijian left, Jiang Fuyue stood on the podium, staring at the students below with wide eyes.
The atmosphere was awkward.
Even Ling Xuan, who had been buried in his work, couldn’t help but lift his eyelids to look at her.
Jiang Fuyue sighed. Well, with the current training method, there were a lot of problems. Why not… change it up?
She raised her hand and slowly opened her notebook…
