Chapter 351: A High Price!
The accompanying teacher was actually quite embarra.s.sed.
Her job was to take care of the six students who came for the exam. It was not an exaggeration to call her a life teacher.
Hence, after the incident last time, she could not go against the Mathematical Olympiad committee and could only hurriedly contact Liang Gan.
However, she did not expect that she would suddenly receive a call from the Chinese Mathematical Olympiad team last night. They asked about her life overseas, especially regarding Xue Xi’s a.s.sault allegations. They asked about what Liang Gan said and did…
The teacher could not have lied and hence had told them everything.
She guaranteed that what she told was not an exaggeration and that it was just a fact! As for who had brought the matter back to the Chinese Mathematical Olympiad, she did not know either. She knew that the higher-ups had already started investigating.
She guessed that this change in position should not be too favorable for Liang Gan.
Seeing that her expression was unnatural, Liang Gan thought that the accompanying teacher was envious. Hence, she patted her shoulder and comforted her softly, “Ms. Zhang, it’s alright. Back then, I could only be an accompanying teacher when I just graduated. Take it slow and you can become the team leader.”
Ms. Zhang: “…”
She smiled awkwardly and did not speak. Liang Gan said, “Everyone, hurry back to the hotel to pack your luggage. Our flight back is tonight.”
After Xiang Huai forcefully stopped the enthusiastic invitations from the two professors, he quickly walked out.
Then, he saw Nicholas blocking the little kid at the door. Just as he was about to walk over, his phone rang.
He intended to press the stop b.u.t.ton before heading over, but after glancing at the name on the screen, he could only stop helplessly and answer the call. “h.e.l.lo, Mom.”
Xiang Huai’s mother’s lively and excited voice came from the other end. “Xiang Huai, are you guys coming back on tonight’s flight?”
Xiang Huai: “… Yes.”
Xiang Huai’s mother hurriedly said, “Okay, I’ll go to the airport tonight.”
Xiang Huai: “??? No need.”
Xiang Huai’s mother sneered. “I’m not going there to see you. Stop thinking too much. I’m going to see my daughter-in-law. Can you make the decision for her? If you can, then bring her home.”
Xiang Huai: “…”
Was she even his biological mother? If she wanted to speak to someone, she should just speak. Why must she punish him?
However, he could not control his mother. After all, even his father was afraid of her. Xiang Huai rubbed his temples. “Mom, she hasn’t fully accepted me yet. Don’t mess it up.”
“Don’t worry. Let me tell you…”
“Let’s talk about it in the future.” Xiang Huai cut her off and shot Nicholas a glance. “Otherwise, your daughter-in-law will be s.n.a.t.c.hed away.”
After hanging up, Xiang Huai walked toward Nicholas and Xue Xi.
Xue Xi replied to Huo Xiu’s words and waited for him to let her pa.s.s. However, this person stood in front of her and seemed to be hesitating to speak.
At this moment, a cold voice cut in. It was speaking a language that Xue Xi could not understand.
She paused and looked at Xiang Huai. He had a cold expression, and his slender figure exuded a sharp aura. His eyes were fierce, as though he would attack if Huo Xiu did not comply.
Nicholas was stunned. He then looked at Xiang Huai and said something in a similar language.

Xiang Huai’s expression turned colder as he said something Xue Xi could not understand.
The duty-free shops sold famous brands. A few of the red-haired boys were not interested in shopping while the girls were mostly from wealthy families. After all, they were Gao Yanchen’s partners, so they did not care about the tax exemption. Hence, everyone strolled around while not being in the mood to buy anything.
As they strolled around, they coincidentally b.u.mped into Liang Gan in the LV store.
Liang Gan was looking at a bag. In the duty-free shop, it was three thousand yuan cheaper than outside, but she still could not bear to part with the cheaper price.
Just as she was feeling conflicted, she saw a few people walking in.
None of them bought anything.
Liang Gan suddenly stood up and said to the service staff, “Wrap this up.”
No matter what, she could not be looked down upon.
She’d just treat it as a reward for her promotion! The Chinese team had won the gold medal, and when they returned to the country, the Mathematical Olympiad would definitely reward her!
The service staff nodded. “This bag is 18,000 yuan.”
When the service staff went to pack it, Flame Number Five sighed. “Wow! This bag is 18,000 yuan?”
She was one of the few girls among the seven Flames.
Hearing this, Liang Gan instantly looked at them with a sense of superiority and smiled. “Yes.”
Flame Number Five instantly said, “The price is not low!”
If she asked her friends overseas to buy it for her, it would be cheaper. It seemed that this duty-free shop was not worthy of its name!
Liang Gan misunderstood and raised her chin even higher. “It’s not too expensive, but you guys are students. It’s normal for you to not be able to afford it. After you guys graduate and start working hard, you’ll be able to afford it with a monthly income of 20-30,000.”
Flame Number Five: “?”
