Su Yue heaved a sigh of relief. She was right when she thought Bai Jing had yelled at her only because the rumor had upset her.
She patted her back gently in an attempt to comfort her. “Don’t cry. I know that the rumors aren’t true. I will definitely help you. I’ll call my Third Brother immediately and ask him to get the principal to close the school forum.”
She pushed Bai Jing away gently, helping her wipe her tears. “Bai Jing, don’t care about what others think. Just take it they’re jealous of you.”
That’s right. They were all just being jealous of her. She was smart and of good character.
They were all jealous.
Bai Jing was still sobbing, though much less than before. She choked. “I don’t know who I offended, who had to spread such things about me.”
Then she grabbed Su Yue’s hand, peering up at her. She agitatedly said, “You know it, I’m with you every day. From attending classes and playing basketball, to eating and sleeping, I’m always with you. I didn’t offend anybody.”
Su Yue nodded. “I know, I know all of this.”
Bai Jing tears kept flowing, so she continued helping her to wipe her tears.
After much effort, Bai Jing finally cooled down.
Her eyes were red and puffy, and her voice had turned nasal.
She then looked at Su Yue and asked, “Someone drugged me that day, but your Third Brother saved me. He sent me to the hospital and then brought me to your place. It was the day that I suddenly appeared at your house, do you remember?”
Su Yue nodded. “I do.”
Of course, she remembered. That was the first and only time Bai Jing ever stayed in their house.
It pleasantly surprised her to see her bright and early in the morning.
Su Yue thought about it before angrily gritting her teeth. “Your mother’s family is utterly incorrigible. How could they do this to you?”
Then she grabbed Bai Jing’s hand and said, “Don’t return to them anymore. Live at my place. My third brother and third sister-in-law will help you.”
Bai Jing smiled and nodded in agreement.
It filled her with confidence and hope.
Su Yue finally put her mind at ease and smiled. “Have you eaten breakfast?”
Bai Jing nodded. “Yes, I ate at home before coming over.”
“I’ve also eaten,” Su Yue said. Then she thought of something and grabbed her bag. She took out a small plastic bag and sat down beside Bai Jing, smiling. “My third brother brought this back for me from Jincheng. It’s a local delicacy and it’s delicious.”
She opened the bag and passed her a spherical snack.
Bai Jing took it from her but she didn’t eat it.
“Eat it first. I’ll ask my third brother to get the principal to find out who spread such rumors about you, and give them a good lesson,” Su Yue spat, taking her phone out from her bag and preparing to call Yan Rusheng.
“Su Yue,” Bai Jing said, stopping her and snatching her phone away. She shook her head. “Don’t. Your third brother must be busy at this time. Don’t trouble him.”
Su Yue frowned. “It’s fine. My third brother will help you for sure. He and my third sister-in-law both said that they’ll help you if you have any problems.”
Bai Jing shook her head adamantly. “It’ll blow over.”
She smiled, seemingly full of positivity, before continuing, “There were rumors about you previously, didn’t it blow over as well?”
