Chapter 78: Her Heart Feels Warm
Those people were there to stop her yet she now had the chance to leave. Since Gao Yanchen and the rest were fine, Xue Xi did not reject their offer and got into the car. Uncle Li stepped on the accelerator and the car sped away.
Xue Xi sat in the car and looked back through the car window.
Gao Yanchen had both hands in his pockets. The arrogant youth sneered while Flame Number One shouted. The rest also stopped the reporters. The cl.u.s.ter of flames seemed to be much cuter at this moment.
Xue Xi retracted her gaze. When she reached home, she received Gao Yanchen’s friend request on WeChat. Xue Xi then changed his contact name: Little Flame.
Little Flame: “It’s settled. Don’t worry.”
The message was so arrogant and cute.
Xue Xi alighted and entered with her head lowered. “Thank you.”
Just as she entered, she heard Old Master Xue’s angry voice. “What’s going on?”
Xue Xi’s footsteps accelerated. When she entered, she saw the old patriarch and the old lady sitting on the sofa and glaring at Xue Sheng. “The reporters have all come to the office! If this matter gets reported tomorrow, the company’s stock prices will drop! Why are you so muddle-headed?! Did you have to bribe Huaxia University?”
Xue Sheng instantly shook his head. “Dad, I haven’t been to the capital recently, so where would I have gotten the money? Besides, don’t you think this matter is very strange? There are many people who are guaranteed admission to Huaxia University every year, and there are quite a few exceptions. Why do you keep harping on Xixi? Someone must be behind this!”
Since they were all businessmen, Xue Sheng’s words made the old master think deeper into it. He frowned and was easily diverted by Xue Sheng. “Who is targeting Xue Xi?”
Xue Sheng had a serious look on his face. “I should say, who is targeting us? Xixi is being implicated because of the company’s matters!”
It was the Xue family’s company.
Several compet.i.tors flashed across Old Master Xue’s mind. “We must investigate this matter strictly! Those reporters will definitely smear us if they were bribed!”
As soon as he said this, Liu Yiqiu, who had been on guard by the side, blinked and said, “I say, why don’t we ask Xixi to reject the recommendation? That way, we can prove our innocence.”
Ye Li cut her off. “I don’t agree. Xixi is upright and has never done anything wrong. Why should she reject the offer?”
The old lady patted the armrest and said sternly, “What a joke. She’s just a child. How can she be recognized by a professor? No one will believe this if it gets out! How can you say that she’s upright…”
Just as Ye Li was about to speak, Xue Sheng spoke first. “Isn’t it obvious that you’d be telling everyone that we did something wrong if we reject the recommendation?”
Old Master Xue frowned. “Let’s wait and see.”
Xue Xi stood there and quietly watched the argument in the living room.
In the school, the Flames had blocked the reporters for her.
At home, her parents sheltered her from the wind and rain.
Although she had never needed it, she still felt a warmth in her heart at this moment, as though something had been filled.
As she went to bed that night, Ye Li sighed. “Xixi is outstanding, but why do you think Huaxia University is giving her a direct pa.s.s?”
Xue Sheng’s gaze was resolute. “No matter what, I believe in Xixi. If this matter drags on until the end and Huaxia University is beaten, I will definitely fight to the end with them.”
The next day, the Weibo account that had been paralyzed for three days was restored!
Although the school’s reporters were suppressed by Gao Yanchen, there were still many reporters who were bought over at a high price. Hence, the moment the trending page was restored, the topic of #Huaxia University’s internal affairs# went on trending again. There was a flurry of discussion on it:
“Has this matter been resolved yet? Why didn’t the admissions office give an explanation?”
“The college entrance examination is the most sacred thing in China. Many people are racking their brains to get into Huaxia University, but is Huaxia University just casually recruiting students? This is too disappointing!”

“Rumor has it that a certain XX student is in Bin City International High School. They are all members of wealthy families. Why are they staying in our country instead of studying abroad?”
This was an indirect kiss. Would the young lady be shy?
He waited for two seconds before the little kid moved. She looked at the dining table in confusion, then suddenly reached out with her chopsticks and quickly picked up the last beef bun. She stuffed it into her mouth in two or three mouthfuls and only opened her mouth when she had swallowed hard. “That’s all.”
Xiang Huai: “…”
So, in her eyes, he was just trying to s.n.a.t.c.h the bun from her?
Feeling a little dry, Xue Xi drank another mouthful of soya bean milk. Seeing that Xiang Huai was still staring blankly at her, she hesitated for a moment before pa.s.sing the soya bean milk to him in embarra.s.sment. “You want to drink it too?”
Xiang Huai received her soy milk just like that. After the girl shook his hand and left, he stared at the soy milk in his hand and suddenly laughed.
At this moment, Lu Chao, who had witnessed his boss’s failed attempt at flirting, spoke in fear. “Boss, the foreign mathematics journal has just been published.”
Xue Xi pressed down on her baseball cap and, under the gaze of the reporters, was protected by Little Flame as she safely entered the school.
She was accosted the moment she entered the cla.s.sroom.
Li Hanlei rebuked, “It’s all because of you that our entire school is being criticized! Xue Xi, how fake are your math results that you managed to bribe the professor to admit you in advance?”
Fan Han also tensed his chin. “Xue Xi, your actions are too out of line.”
At this moment, cla.s.s monitor Zhou Zhen rushed in. “Xue Xi, the Education Bureau has sent someone!”
The teacher from the Academic Affairs Office entered the cla.s.sroom and frowned as he stared at Xue Xi. “Xue Xi, the reporters have surrounded the princ.i.p.al and the entire school is in a crisis because of you. May I ask what exactly happened for you to be admitted early by Huaxia University? If you don’t give a reasonable answer, the school will have to expel you!”
