At that moment, a shout came from the hallway, "Ms. Liang is here!"
At the door, Liang Li Hua walked in. By her side was the petition delivered to her by Cheng Xues cronies. It looked like they realised something was wrong so they were ordered by Cheng Xue to bring reinforcement.
Everybody sighed in relief instantly at the sight of Ms. Liang and Ye Wanwan also quickly took the chance to sit up.
Unsure if it was her imagination, Ye Wanwan thought she saw a shred of disappointment on Si Xias face as if he was unhappy at the interruption.
Liang Li Hua held the petition in her hand and turned to stare at Ye Wanwan in annoyance, "Ye Wanwan, why is it you all the time? How much trouble are you going to make before youre satisfied?"
She then turned to the crowd and said, "Ive seen everybodys concerns, and initially, we assigned the roles randomly so that it would be fair. But since the results have caused such a big problem and rehearsals aren't going smoothly, I have decided to choose another candidate for the role of Snow White. Are there any objections?"
Upon hearing this, everyone was suddenly in high spirits. This brought great satisfaction to everyone and everybody replied in unison, "No!"
Ye Wanwan heaved a sigh of relief as well. Finally, the moment she had been waiting for.
But at this moment, an unexpected voice came from her side, "I object."
The person who spoke was Si Xia.
Cheng Xue quickly ran to Si Xia and pulled at his shirt while whining softly, "Si Xia, what are you talking about? The teacher has already agreed, why are you still so stubborn?"
Ye Wanwan looked at Si Xia warily. W hat is this guy trying to do this time...?
The boys icy gaze swept across the room, "If the roles are going to be changed over and over, are we then going to change the next candidate halfway as well? Anyway, there isn't much time left until the performance--if we choose someone else, we'll have to start from scratch. We've been rehearsing well aside from the final act and the problem with that act lies with me. I now have things under control and I promise that rehearsals will proceed smoothly from here on."
Not only were the students stunned but Liang Li Hua had never considered the possibility that Si Xia would object. She furrowed her brows and said, "But even if you can act successfully, Ye Wanwans image is still a big problem."
Si Xia replied without a change in his expression, "There is a certain artistic flair and exaggeration in the theatre--Ye Wanwans image is not a problem at all. Besides, in the later stages, we could use some styling and masks to conceal and solve the problem. I will discuss all these concerns with the class monitor and bring a viable and detailed proposal to you."
After Si Xia had presented his views, Liang Li Hua was unhappy but couldn't protest any further, "If you insist, I won't object, but if theres a problem"
Actually, she considered Ye Wanwan to be a secondary problem--her biggest issue lay with Si Xia. She thought Si Xia resented that Ye Wanwan was playing Snow White, so she took his concerns seriously.
But who knew that Si Xias attitude was completely different from what the other students had said?
This guy wasn't someone a nobody like her could afford to offend.
The others may not have known Si Xias background, but she was well-informed and knew that he wasn't just from an ordinary wealthy family!
If not for her lover confiding in her, she would never have imagined that Si Xia had such powerful backing.
