Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Upon hearing Hua Chi’s roar, all of the students turned their attention to Ye Qingran.
She spread her hands in confusion, “None of my…”
Mu Qingxue sobbed miserably before Ye Qingran had the chance to finish her sentence, “Ye Qingran, this joke is not funny at all. Return the money to me immediately.”
Agree with each other with a few words.
Without given a chance to rebut, Ye Qingran was convicted immediately.
“Which of your eyes saw me stealing your money?” Ye Qingran sarcastically asked.
“The money was here…” Hua Chi pointed to the spot where the money was kept, “I was outside when I saw you standing here when you came back just now. If you weren’t stealing money, what were you doing?”
Ye Qingran reacted with surprise, “You saw me?”
Holding back her laughed, she replied, “I’m sorry. When I came back just now, I saw a boy and a girl hugging each other at the corner. Those two looked like you and Mu Qingxue.”
She used to watch dramas when she had free time in the past.
Some of the female leads starring in these idol dramas were top-notch sl*t.
Holding on to the male lead…
While flirting with the supporting male on the other end.
The female lead remained ambivalent between the two, and she continued to flirt.
Throughout the entire drama, all the men in the play would revolve around the female lead.
Who would have thought that she would encounter such a scene, which involved a “green tea b*tch”.
Their faces were full of gossip.
“D*mn, that’s too blatant! They even dare to hug in school.”
“They seem to have left just now, didn’t they?”
“It wasn’t just them who left. Several of our classmates went to the washroom.”
“That shouldn’t be the case. Aren’t Dongfang Yu and Mu Qingxue dating? Even a fool would know who to pick between Huachi and Dongfang Yu.”
A wrongful looked appeared on Mu Qingxue’s face.
“Ye Qingran, how could you do such a thing? It’s fine if you took the money, but how could you accuse me of this! I…” angrily justified, Mu Qingran’s eyes turned red with her eyes filled with tears when she spoke. Feeling wrongly accused, she raised her trembling hand and pointed at Ye Qingran.
Hua Chi felt guilty.
How could Ye Qingran witness it?
Despite this, he soon regained his composure.
As long as they continue denying, the truth will never emerge.
He also pointed at Ye Qingran and scolded, “You b*stard, you could make up all kinds of nonsense to clear your name. There is no doubt that you are the one who stole the money.”
Ye Qingran slowly arose.
Staring straight into Hua Chi’s eyes, she replied while enunciating each word carefully, “Didn’t you always say that I’m a good-for-nothing who only knows how to rely on my family’s wealth and power? What makes you think that I would be interested in such a small amount of money?”
“Who knows if such wealthy people like you would go to the extremes for the sake of excitement? Weren’t there various news reported before that some rich people having strange habits of peeping at other people? They don’t steal because they need the things, but for the sake of stealing.”
Hua Chi paused for a moment after speaking.
A sudden look of realization struck his face.
Something popped into his head.
He continued saying, “Besides, I heard that you were kicked out of the Ye family. All your credit cards were cancelled, and you only received a fixed allowance every month. Perhaps you have already spent all the allowance you received from your family and they had refused to give you more money, therefore you decided to steal the money that was used by the others’ to pay the material fees.”
Ye Qingran calmly replied, “First of all, yes, I was kicked out of the Ye family, and it’s true that my family only gave me a limited amount for my monthly allowance, but I’m not in a financial bind. The current amount of money I have is even sufficient for me to smother you to death! Next thing, I’m not sure if other rich people have any eccentricities, but I’m certainly not one of them as I have no interest in pursuing excitement. If you are going to accuse me so simply and crudely based on these two reasons, then I’m telling you, you can’t!”
Hua Chi blurted, “That means you deliberately took the money in order to frame Qingxue. The fees for the materials were collected by her; thus, she would be scolded and might need to compensate the whole amount if she losses the money. These few thousand yuan might mean nothing to you, but it’s a large sum of money to Qingxue.”
Ye Qingran sneered, “With this logic of yours, why are you studying science? You should consider changing your major to liberal arts to become a screenwriter or a writer. Otherwise, it would be a real waste!”
Hua Chi pointed at the girl’s bag and challenged, “Since you claimed that you did not take the money and refused to admit it, do you dare to let everyone search through your bag?”
“Who do you think you are? Why do I need to listen to your instructions?”
“If you didn’t take the money, you shouldn’t be worried. Unless you won’t let us search your bag because you have a guilty conscience and fear everyone will discover the money inside!”
“If you are certain that I took the money, please directly call the police now.”
“Since you said so, we will contact the police right away. A thief like you will be caught when the time comes!”
“Why not we let the police use their high-tech criminal investigation techniques, such as fingerprints and tests, to properly investigate where the money went?”
After she finished speaking, she gave Mu Qingxue a devilish smile.
Mu Qingxue’s heart began to tremble violently.
If she called the police, they could probably find her fingerprints on the plastic bag using high-tech equipment.
It was impossible for her to call the police.
As long as she was able to prove that the money was retrieved from Ye Qingran’s bag on the spot, the girl would no longer be able to deny it!
Biting her lips, she softly voiced out with a compassionate look, “We’re all classmates, there’s no need for such commotion. Besides, a criminal record would be attained if we called the police. Our only concern is finding the money and I know that money is not an issue for you. Maybe you’re just playing a joke or trying to tease me. So, all you have to do now is to return the money.”
Ye Qingran could not help but rolled her eyes after hearing what Mu Qingxue said, “Do you have any hearing problems? Is it not clear to you what I just said? I did not take your materials fees, and I disdained to pull such a prank on you. Since you’re the one who lost the money, find it on your own.”
“You claimed that you did not take it, then the only thing you need to do is to let us check your bag,” Mu Qingxue pointed at Ye Qingran’s school bag, “if the money isn’t in your bag, we will no longer accuse you.”
“Who do you think you are? Are you RMB (Renminbi – China’s currency), where everyone must impress you whenever they see you? Rumors were spreading that either I like you, I want to pursue you, or I’d been charged with rape or theft. Are you targeting me because you have an interest in me instead of vice versa?
It’s either a rumor that I like you, that I want to pursue you, or that I’m accused of raping someone and stealing your money. Are you targeting me because I want to pursue you, or because you want to stick to me? I’m sorry, but I’m not interested in a girl like you who only seek for the fraternity of mankind.”
The moment she finished her sentence, Hua Chi reprimanded, “Ye Qingran, you’re only good at bullying girls. I guess that you feel guilty as you’re worried we’ll find the money in your bag.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he reached out to grab her bag.
The man was reaching out for her bag when Ye Qingran suddenly reached out and grabbed his wrist.
She then twisted his arm around violently.
Hua Chi immediately screamed in pain. The sound of his voice turned out hoarse and distorted, “My hand is breaking! Let go of me, Ye Qingran, let go of me now!”
Ye Qingran mocked, “Who are you to touch my bag? That’s daring of you! Why does it matter if your hand is broken? You said my family was rich, didn’t you? Thus, can you tell me how much you would charge for a broken hand?”
