Bigoted Mr. Fu Lets Me Do Whatever I Want - Chapter 222
Hao Yun, who had always gotten along well with Wu Yue, approached them from the back. “I saw you leaving the classroom last and you looked rather flustered. One look and I could tell that you have a guilty conscience.”
Ye Xue was confused by the questioning. She looked at Wu Yue and Hao Yun and explained, “I didn’t steal your wristwatch. I don’t even know what your wristwatch looks like.”
Wu Yue said, “Then let me search your bag. We will know whether you’ve stolen it once we search it.”
Although Ye Xue was introverted and had low self-esteem, she was also stubborn. “I didn’t steal it. Why should I let you search my bag?”
The students crowded around as if they were watching a show.
“Hey, did Ye Xue really steal something?”
“Probably. Ye Xue is always so quiet. Who knows if she’s a thief or not?”
“Wu Yue’s watch is worth tens of thousands of dollars. I heard from her last time that it’s worth a lot even if you resell it.”
“If Ye Xue had really stolen it, her guaranteed entrance to university will be revoked.”
“She won’t allow her bag to be searched. She must be feeling guilty, right?”
When Wu Yue saw that Ye Xue did not allow her to search her bag, a subtle smile flashed across her eyes. “If you don’t allow me to search, it means that you’re guilty. The watch must be in your school bag.”
“I said I didn’t steal it, so I didn’t steal it. Why must I let you search my bag?” Ye Xue sat there motionlessly, blocking the desk with her body so that no one could touch her schoolbag.
“Don’t you wear your watch on your wrist at all times? Why did you suddenly put it under your desk? Have you searched your desk properly?”
Qin Shu looked coldly at Wu Yue who was standing in front of her. At first, she had only been suspicious. She didn’t expect that Wu Yue had really wanted to frame Ye Xue so that she would lose her guaranteed entrance to university. The guaranteed spot would then go to Wu Yue since she had just one vote less than Ye Xue.
Wu Yue met Qin Shu’s gaze and felt inexplicably guilty. She looked away and her tone was no longer as arrogant as before. “I felt comfortable wearing it today, so I put it under my desk. I looked for it a few times but couldn’t find it. Ye Xue is the biggest suspect.”
Qin Shu said coldly, “That doesn’t mean that Ye Xue had stolen it. You have no right to search Ye Xue’s bag.”
Fu Tingyan and Jiang Yu walked into the classroom and saw that Qin Shu and Ye Xue’s desks were surrounded by people.
Could it be that something had happened?
Fu Tingyan furrowed his brows and walked over. He stood behind the crowd and spoke up. His voice was clear and had a hint of coldness in it. “Why are all of you gathered around here? Don’t you need to revise?”
The students turned around and saw Fu Tingyan and Jiang Yu standing behind them. All of them scattered. They returned to their desks and sat down but continued looking at Ye Xue as if they were watching a very entertaining show.
Wu Yue felt a little guilty when she saw Fu Tingyan and Jiang Yu. However, when she thought of how she had been the one to put the wristwatch into Ye Xue’s bag, she knew that Ye Xue would not be able to defend herself once the watch was discovered in her bag.
She pointed at Ye Xue and said confidently, “Jiang Yu, Ye Xue stole my wristwatch. I want to search her bag, but she refused. It’s obvious that she’s guilty.”
Ye Xue saw Jiang Yu standing behind Fu Tingyan. She lowered her head and defended herself softly, “I didn’t steal it.”
Jiang Yu glanced at Ye Xue and turned to Wu Yue. “What evidence do you have to prove that Ye Xue had stolen your watch?”
“She was the last one to come out of the classroom during lunch and she looked sneaky. Just search her bag and you’ll know if I’ve wronged her,” said Wu Yue.
Qin Shu looked straight at Wu Yue and said, “Then what if you can’t find the watch?”
“Then I’ll apologize to her in front of the whole class. If I find the watch, she has to admit that she’s a thief in front of the whole class.” Wu Yue was filled with confidence.
