“Teacher Xiao, this windbreaker of yours is really beautiful and it’s currently the perfect season to wear it. Where did you buy it?” Xiao Gui Hua asked.
Xiao Qiu Ci smiled and said, “My friend asked someone to import it from Hong Kong.”
“Isn’t that expensive?” Xiao Gui Hua couldn’t hide the envy in her eyes, “When will I be able to travel to Hong Kong? Even if it’s just once, I will be satisfied. I heard that last year, they organized a trip to Hong Kong for the more outstanding teachers in the province, so they can travel and study there.”
“This year, you’ll definitely be chosen.” Xiao Qiu Ci smiled, “In our junior high school, none of the other teachers in the Chinese department can compare to you.”
“That’s not true, you’re just flattering me.” Xiao Gui Hua feigned a modest smile.
Just at this moment, Yun Hua pushed open the door to the teacher’s office and walked in!
Her entrance was not discreet thus immediately attracting the attention of all the teachers in the office. The teachers that were correcting homework, chatting, and planning their lessons… All of them turned around and stared at Yun Hua!
Yun Hua walked up straight to Xiao Qiu Ci.
Xiao Qiu Ci quickly smiled when she saw Yun Hua, “Hua Hua, you came! The reason you came must be because you want to transfer out, right? Don’t worry about it yet, after all, the school had just split up the classes…”
“Teacher Xiao,” Yun Hua interrupted her and said, “Can you come a little closer to me?”
Xiao Qiu Ci froze for a moment and asked, “What’s wrong?”
While she questioned Yun Hua, she got up from her chair and walked in front of her desk.
Yun Hua smiled at Xiao Qiu Ci, but she didn’t reply to her question. Instead, she walked towards Xiao Qiu Ci’s desk and sat on her chair.
“Hua Hua, what are you doing?” Xiao Qiu Ci was puzzled.
Xiao Gui Hua stood by the side as she sneered, “She is undisciplined and completely out of control. How dare she tell a teacher to get up just so she can sit down? She has no upbringing at all!”
The other teachers also pointed at Yun Hua and chided her for being disrespectful.
Yun Hua ignored them, instead, her eyes fell on the drawer on the far right of the desk. She reached out her hand and tried to pull the drawer out, but it didn’t budge at all. It was locked.
Yun Hua looked at Xiao Qiu Ci and asked, “Teacher Xiao, where is the key to this drawer?”
Xiao Qiu Ci furrowed her brows, “Hua Hua, what are you trying to do? Tell auntie what you want to do, and stop acting like this. You’re being very rude!”
“That’s right, how can there be a student like her? She’s so lacking in manners!”
“The students these days think that they’re better than the teacher…”
The surrounding teachers began to chatter all at once.
Yun Hua turned a deaf ear to the other teachers and only looked at Xiao Qiu Ci, “Teacher Xiao, my exam papers for the placement test were all lost except for mathematics. If you didn’t want me to enter Class 1, you could’ve just told me so. Why tear up my exam papers?”
Xiao Qiu Ci’s complexion turned slightly pale and her frown deepened, “Where did you hear this from? Why would I tear up your exam papers? I know that you don’t want to stay in class 15, and I already agreed to transfer you to my class. Don’t push your luck! Do you know that you will be punished for slandering a teacher?”
“That’s right! How can a student just barge in here and start slandering a teacher? Students these days have no principle and respect!”
“Ask the dean to come here. A student like her needs to have a demerit on her record!”
In just ten minutes, the Vice Principal Hao Xue Wen and the Second-Year Director Wu Lian arrived.
When Wu Lian saw Yun Hua, his face darkened, “What kind of trouble are you stirring up?”
Yun Hua turned towards Wu Lian and said, “Director Wu, I have already watched the surveillance footage and saw that the exam papers are in this drawer. I also took the hard drive containing the footage. Of course, I’m not asking for much. I just want my exam papers and an apology! If my request is not fulfilled, then I will have no choice but to send the hard drive to the newspaper and the Education Bureau. I think the newspaper will be very interested in the footage depicting Teacher Xiao tearing up exam papers!”
Wu Lian’s complexion couldn’t possibly turn any darker.
Yun Hua was very calm as she quietly waited for Xiao Qiu Ci to make a decision.
In the end, the Vice Principal Hao Xue Wen who had kept silent throughout the entire exchange, finally spoke up and looked at Xiao Qiu Ci, “Teacher Xiao, why don’t you…why don’t you open the drawer first? Maybe there aren’t exam papers inside.”
