“Thats right. If I had a top scorer daughter, how could I bear to let her suffer all those hardships”
“Moreover, the Xu familys biological daughter is so scheming. Her own strength isnt good enough, yet she still blames others.”
How could Xu Yue listen to these words that denied her With tears in her eyes, she still wanted to explain, “Its not what everyone thinks... I have a very good relationship with my sister.”
“The victim hasnt even cried yet, and youre already suffering.” Someone had long disliked Xu Yue and directly retorted, “Your Xu family is so good at bullying people, whats there to justify”
Xu Yue bit her lip and looked even more pitiful.
When Xu Zhongyi saw that he had lost a lot of face this time, he glared at Xu Wanwan resentfully. “No matter what, shes still your sister. Cant you give in to her a little”
“Yeah, youre always so aggressive as an elder sister.” Sun Yuelans words were full of protectiveness. “Your sister is sensible and obedient. You cant blame us for being a little harsh on you.”
Xu Wanwan frowned slightly.
She originally thought that she wouldnt waste her emotions for the sake of this family, but things had already come to this point. They didnt have any intention of coming to their senses at all. They still wholeheartedly protected Xu Yue.
Yes, they had never liked her; so how could they handle the problem from a fair perspective
Xu Wanwan sighed lightly, covering the sadness that flashed in her eyes.
Li Jingran held the girls hand without batting an eyelid. He turned to look at the Xu family and said mockingly, “You dont have anything to do with Wanwan. What right do you have to teach her a lesson”
Xu Zhongyi still wanted to defend himself, but Sun Yuelan immediately grabbed his arm and shook her head.
If she were to admit Xu Wanwans identity now, it would be very disadvantageous to Xu Yue.
Xu Zhongyi swung his arm. “Lets go.”
“How can you leave just like that after bullying a Li family member” Li Jingran coldly called out to the Xu family members who wanted to escape. He took a document from the butler and flung it at them. “This is evidence of Xu Yue starting rumors in private. Go back and prepare for it. Wait for my lawyers letter.”
“What! You want to sue us”
Li Jingran spat out a word, “Scram.”
As soon as he said that, some bodyguards dressed in black appeared in the corner and brought the members of the Xu family out.
After the members of the Xu family left, the banquet went on as usual.
Many people had changed their impression of the Xu family. Instead, they especially admired Xu Wanwan.
Li Jingran turned around and looked at Xu Wanwan. Seeing that she was in a normal mood, he said calmly, “Ill introduce you to some people.”
“Okay.” Xu Wan looked up and smiled at the man.
This smile melted Li Jingrans heart.
He took the girls hand and brought her close to her peers, who were about to attend school, and said in a light voice, “You guys get to know each other. Ill come and find you later.”
Xu Wanwan nodded obediently. “Okay.”
After Li Jingran left, a few girls surrounded her.
“Hello, my name is Fang Ya. Nice to meet you.” A girl in a simple dress elegantly walked over.
Xu Wanwan politely reached out her hand. “Hello, my name is Xu Wanwan.”
“We all know you. After all, youre this years top scorer!” The girls smiled amiably and then asked, “Right, which university do you want to go to Why dont we go to the same university”
“I havent decided yet...” Xu Wanwan hesitated. “What about you guys”
“Have you heard of A University” Fang Ya asked. “My father is the president of A University. This school is also a first-class Science university in the country. I think its very suitable for you.”
Xu Wanwan smiled. “Okay, Ill think about it.”
“Okay! If you can go to A University with us, we can become friends.”
Xu Wanwan thanked them one by one and exchanged contact information with them.
After talking to them, she found a quiet spot and looked at the men in suits giving each other toasts.
As they toasted, her eyes became hot. She could not believe the situation she was in now.
She was living a new life. She had taught the Xu family a lesson, going to enter university, and even made friends.
In the past, she would never have dared to think of such things.
But now, everything she was enjoying was given to her by Li Jingran.
If it werent for his help, she wouldnt have appeared here, and she wouldnt have known so many people.
Xu Wanwan looked through the crowd and found the man standing in the middle of the hall.
He was dressed in a neat black suit, which made him tall and slender. The light shone on the profile of his face, outlining his extremely beautiful facial features.
He was drinking with someone. His slender fingers were holding a glass of wine, and his every move was exceptionally charming.
Xu Wanwan tilted her head. She was actually in a daze.
So much so that when Li Jingrans gaze fell on her, she did not react.
The noise from the crowd seemed to have quieted down. The moment her gaze met Li Jingrans, her eyes lit up and the corners of her lips unconsciously curled up.
Li Jingran was actually standing not far away, absent-mindedly listening to the conversation around him. However, his eyes were always on Xu Wanwan.
The two of them, separated by the crowd, exchanged glances with each other.
After a while, melodious violin music sounded in the hall, and the guests who had come to visit dispersed.
After Li Jingran sent off the guests, he immediately went to Xu Wanwan and observed her mood. He asked, “Why were you sitting there alone just now”
His eyes were burning. Xu Wanwan couldnt help but lower her head and explain helplessly, “No... I just felt very happy.”
“Because no one has ever treated me like this.” Xu Wanwan stared at the ground with downcast eyes. Her eyes filled with heat, and carefully, she said, “I know you did all this for me. Thank you.”
Li Jingran could not see her expression, but he could already imagine her pouting her lips, her eyes looking sincere and pitiful.
His heart softened, and his voice lowered. “Look up at me.”
Xu Wanwan held back her tears in a panic as she looked up at the mans eyes. Crystal clear tears swirled in her eyes, but they did not fall for a long time.
“Since youre thanking me, why are you still crying” Li Jingran controlled his temper and asked in a deep voice.
“I…” Xu Wan took a deep breath and gave the man a serious look. “I feel very touched and happy, so these are tears of joy.”
Li Jingran was amused by the girls explanation. He deliberately lowered his voice. “More reason to cry”
“No, I wont cry now.” Zu Wanwan thought he was angry and hurriedly raised her hand to wipe her tears.
Seeing her like this, Li Jingran sighed helplessly. He took out a piece of paper from the coffee table and carefully wiped away the tears from the corner of her eyes. “You will face many such things in the future. You will meet many people who will treat you well. You deserve all of this.”
“So, dont be so touched just because you feel a little good.”
After saying this, Li Jingran pinched the space between his eyebrows.
This girl was so innocent. If one day she was coaxed away by some scumbags sweet words, wouldnt he suffer a great loss
