Ch. 21 Cane
Seeing Ren Tao walking over with a sullen face, Jiang Juan greeted him with a smile, “Mr. Ren, good evening.”
The veins on Ren Tao’s forehead twitched and he said coldly, “There is nothing good.”
Before the holiday, Ren Tao had told his colleagues in the same office that the students in his class had grown up and became sensible, especially Jiang Juan and Xu Rang. They were quiet and honest and did not cause trouble. He was finally able to spend a holiday in peace and happily accompany his family.
At that time, his colleagues had congratulated him, saying that he had finally gotten some peace, and would not have to be closely watched by the school leaders in the future.
Who would have thought that it was only a few hours into the vacation, and Jiang Juan, who was praised by him, created another trouble. And, its not enough for him to make a fuss by himself, but he also pulled the students in the class to fight together.
“Fighting in groups.” Ren Tao glanced coldly at Jiang Juan, Xie Jingxian and others one by one, and said, “You are very courageous.”
Wang Tuo, Bai Guang and the others had never experienced this. They couldn’t raise their heads under Ren Tao’s reprimand, and they were even more apprehensive, worried that he would inform their parents.
Jiang Juan was not at all nervous. He said, “Reporting to the teacher, they caused trouble first, we were just counterattacking reasonably.”
“Reasonable counterattack?” Ren Tao was about to laugh angrily. He took a deep breath, so as not to lose his temper. He thought silently in his heart, these children are too old to be punished by corporal punishment!
Ren Tao raised his hand and rubbed his brows. He was standing far from Jiang Juan, and when the conflict happened, the surrounding area became very messy. There were cheers and whistles, and his voice was drowned out in those messy voices.
He saw with his own eyes that Jiang Juan was the one who moved first, but now Jiang Juan was talking nonsense without even blinking his eyes, looking very calm.
Ren Tao then said, “I saw with my own eyes that you were the one who started the fight.”
Jiang Juan blinked and said, “It was indeed me who moved first, but it was for the sake of self-defense.” Naturally, he meant Xie Jingxian, Wang Tuo and Dong Gao.
Ren Tao sneered, “You are very righteous.” His clear eyes swept over everyone, wishing to skin a layer of their skin “I am telling you, none of you are going to get away from this.”
Wang Tuo said, “Teacher, there was a reason for us to do it, they…”
Ren Tao waved his hand in a fit of anger and said, “Whatever be the reason, you can tell it to your parents later.” Then he went to see the high school seniors who were lying on the ground and headed by Wang Ping.
“You are also from our school? Which class?”
Dong Gao said, “Teacher, they are in the third year of high school, that stupid big guy is called Wang Ping…”
Ren Tao’s eyes widened, it wasn’t enough to hit someone, and he even called them with a nickname, which was really outrageous. Looking at Ren Tao’s furious, Dong Gao scratched his hair and shrank back.
These young men were full of energy, and their fights were even fiercer. The students in the third year of high school were all miserably beaten, especially Wang Ping, who was beaten black and blue.
Ren Tao had to send these people to the hospital first, and then contact the head class teacher of these students.
Before leaving the stall, Jiang Juan got the store’s WeChat account, saying that he will be the one paying for the orders of the guests who were disturbed. When the time came, the store will notify him the amount to be paid.
Ren Tao felt that Jiang Juan was more of a headache than before. He stuffed the group of students into the car, called his family to inform, and went to the hospital.
Wang Ping’s head teacher, Zhao Qing, came very quickly. When he saw that his students were beaten so badly, he immediately became unhappy and pulled Ren Tao aside to ask for an explanation.
Ren Tao called Jiang Juan, Xie Jingxian and the others with a straight face and asked them about what had happen. As a result, after listening to the whole story, Ren Tao’s face visibly changed.
Zhao Qing was the one who aggressively asked for an explanation, but in the end he was also dumbfounded. After staying silent for a long time, he only said one sentence: “Then you shouldn’t have beaten them so hard. Look at how badly you have beaten them.”
Ren Tao is someone who is very protective of his students, especially since these people were bullying the good student of his class, it was even more impossible for him to give in, “That’s why should use his mouth appropriately. Given how big he is, how can he say something like that? Reading all those books have gone to waste.”
Zhao Qing’s face immediately became ugly. He walked up to Wang Ping, raised his hand as if he wanted to hit Wang Ping’s head, but seeing the gauze wrapped around his head, he poked at his heart instead, as if hating the iron for not becoming steel Failing to meet one’s expectations., “Harbinger of bad luck? Bane of other’s existence? Why are you so superstitious at such a young age, are you still living in the ancient times?”
In front of Zhao Qing, Wang Ping looked as obedient as a little sheep. In the face of Zhao Qing’s questioning, he couldn’t get a word out of his mouth, and only begged Zhao Qing to not notify his parents.
Zhao Qing only replied with two words, “Dream on.”
Parents must be notified, not only of Wang Ping, but the students in Class 2 also couldn’t escape. And they were too high-profile today, they were even filmed and the video was posted on the Internet, with few people even recognizing them. The principal was furious, and his call came immediately.
Ren Tao and Zhao Qing wanted to press things down, but looking at it now, it was obviously impossible.
Ren Tao said, “Go back and write a review of 1,500 words each, and give it to me when the school starts.” Speaking of the school, he frowned, now their class is going to be famous again.
At this moment, Xie Jingxian stood up and said, “Teacher, this matter started because of me, so I should be the one to bear the responsibility alone.”
Wang Tuo, Zhu Xu and the others were nervous when they heard that their parents will be notified and they had to write a review, but when Xie Jingxian wanted to take all the responsibility on himself, they all stood up again.
Dong Gao said, “How is it possible? I also participated in the fight. How can I let you carry it alone. I beat that person till he got panda eyes.”
Started by Dong Gao, others also followed the suit. Wang Tuo even pointed at a boy across him, “I smashed a window between his teethes with a stool.”
Bai Guang also raised his hand and whispered, “I, I smacked a plate on his face.”
Looking at the students in his class being so united and responsible, Ren Tao was very pleased, but Zhao Qing’s face was getting darker and darker, so Ren Tao still had to interrupt them, “Okay, okay, you are still feeling proud, don’t you? Huh? Are you going to call your parents or do you want me to do it for you?”
With just one word from Ren Tao, the arrogant teenagers were stunned.
The parents arrived quickly and asked Ren Tao about the situation.
Dong Gao said, “It’s over. Looking at my mother’s face, I will definitely not be able to avoid a slap when I go back.”
Wang Tuo said, “Brothers, we are done for.” After speaking, he looked at Jiang Juan and asked, “You don’t seem to be nervous at all.”
Jiang Juan said, “I’m used to it.” This made Wang Tuo and the others laugh.
When Ren Tao heard the movement, he looked over and they immediately became honest.
Jiang Juan really wasn’t worried. No matter how fierce Father Jiang was, he was still an intellectual. Besides, with Mother Jiang protecting him, he would be fine. Besides, both of them are so busy with work, it’s not bad to atleast see them twice a year. Even this time, it was not them who came to the hospital, but his driver Lao Li.
While Jiang Juan and the others were chatting, Xie Jingxian came forward and said, “I’m sorry, you guys…”
Dong Gao sighed and said, “Don’t say that, everyone is a friend, so why are you apologizing.”
Zhu Xu said, “That’s right. Brother Xie, every time you help me with my studies, I usually get embarrassed that I can’t give you anything in return. Now that I can finally do something for you, it’s worth being punished.”
Bai Guang also nodded his head like a chicken pecking at the rice.
Seeing Xie Jingxian surrounded by so many people, Jiang Juan couldn’t help but smile. That’s right, he thought, such a good person Xie Jingxian should not be alone filled with loneliness.
Jiang Juan was smiling when he saw Xie Jingxian suddenly look over, and their eyes met. Seeing the slight surprise in Xie Jingxian’s eyes, Jiang Juan continued to smile, and said, “Don’t look at me, I’m different from them. I want you to repay me.”
Xie Jingxian’s expression unconsciously became gentle, which even he didn’t notice, and he said softly, “Tell me.”
Jiang Juan scratched his chin and said, “I haven’t thought about it yet, I’ll tell you when I think about it.”
Xie Jingxian nodded.
Dong Gao, Zhu Xu and the others were stunned, pointing at Jiang Juan and calling him treacherous.
It was very late, and the students were picked up by their parents one after another. Before Jiang Juan left, he and Xie Jingxian were the only ones left, so he couldn’t help but say, “I’ll take you home.”
After figuring out the whole story, Ren Tao knew that Jiang Juan was here today for Xie Jingxian’s sake, and thinking that it was he who had wronged him first, his voice softened a bit as he spoke, “Look at the time. You don’t need to send him, I’ll send him back. You should go home, too.”
Jiang Juan looked at Xie Jingxian, and saw Xie Jingxian nod at him, so he no longer insisted, and left after saying goodbye.
Indeed, as Ren Tao said, it was already too late into the night. With the air conditioner on in the car, Jiang Juan was feeling a little drowsy, so he didn’t notice the worried look on the driver Lao Li’s face.
When the car drove into the courtyard, Jiang Juan opened his eyes. He glanced at it and found that the lights in the house were brightly lit. He couldn’t help but say, “Why is the light in the living room still on? Did auntie forget to turn it off?”
Old Li sighed and said, “President Jiang and Madam are back.”
As soon as he heard that, Jiang Juan immediately unfastened the seat belt, and heard Lao Li saying, “Just go in. And don’t talk back to President Jiang, just listen to what he says. Ah, just go along and bear with it.”
The meaning of this was that Jiang Qin already knew about his fight.
Jiang Juan nodded obediently and said, “Uncle Li, don’t worry.”
Jiang Juan pushed open the door and saw two people sitting on the sofa in the living room.
Jiang Juan had seen pictures of Father and Mother Jiang in the photo. He was worried that since “Jiang Juan” looked the same as him, then whether Father and Mother Jiang would look the same as his parents. It turned out that he had thought too much.
Jiang Qin was in his early 40s, with a dignified appearance. He had a pair of gold-rimmed glasses on the bridge of his nose and wore a dark gray suit. Although he sat there and said nothing, he looked very imposing.
Sitting beside Jiang Qin was a well-maintained woman. Her real age was over forty, but she looked like she was in her early thirties. She was wearing a long black dress, with big wavy curls. Her eyebrows and eyes were somewhat similar to Jiang Juan’s. She wore light makeup, giving her a very gentle feeling, not at all like a strong woman.
Jiang Juan got the feeling that she was very kind. He stepped forward and said, “Dad, Mom.”
Jiang Yue hadn’t seen her son for a long time, so she couldn’t help but miss him. When she saw that Jiang Juan had come back, she got up and said, “Xiao Juan, come here and let me see whether you have grown taller again.”
Jiang Juan responded, but he had just walked to the sofa and was still some distance away from Jiang Yue, when Jiang Qin, who had a cold face, suddenly said, “Kneel down.”
Jiang Juan didn’t hear it clearly the first time, but then he heard Jiang Qin repeat himself, “I asked you to kneel down.”
Jiang Juan: ? ? ?
What do he just hear?
Jiang Juan was stunned by Jiang Qin’s shout and suddenly knelt down. He didn’t react until he saw Jiang Qin take out a cane from the side. This was used to serve the family law.
The novel didn’t focus much on the original owner’s family, only that Mother Jiang was doting, and Father Jiang was strict, but it never mentioned that Jiang’s father was so old-fashioned that if he made a mistake, he was punished by kneeling and beaten with a cane.
Jiang Juan has never been physically punished by his family since he was a child, and it was even less likely for it to happen when he came here. He took a step back, stared at Jiang Qin and said, “Dad, this is unnecessary, right?”
