As Hu Chaoqun lashed out, he glared at Hua Yun. It formed such a stark contrast against the Hu Chaoqun who called Hua Yun “baby” in front of outsiders.
Even then, Hua Yun was not angered—because Hu Chaoqun was her ATM; she was nothing if she were to leave the man now.
“Damn it!” Hu Chaoqun growled and swept all the books on the desk to the floor.
The slam made a few books hit Hua Yun with one of them colliding against her forehead brutally, making it swell on the spot.
Hua Yun clenched her jaw in pain but dared not say a word. All she was left with now was Hu Chaoqun. Hu Chaoqun’s wealth was the only thing she could boast to outsiders.
Hence, she could only put up with Hu Chaoqun’s violence at home while maintain the façade of an affluent wife that roused people’s envy outside.
This was Hua Yun’s current life.
The next day, Yun Jian carried her backpack and went to school as usual.
After the three-day break from Labor Day, her life went back to its routine swiftly. The break was also the last long break Yun Jian had in her junior high school life.
Once May passed, the Senior High School Entrance Examination would begin in the middle of June. What would greet everyone at the end of the tunnel was the senior high school life they had been looking forward to.
As for the school they could get into and the school they would go to, it all depended on the entrance exam in the middle of June.
“Jianjian! Woo-woo, I’ve been growing mushrooms at home! I can finally come back to school for class—and hang around you all day! I’m so excited!”
Chen Xinyi pounced at Yun Jian just as she arrived at school.
Yun Jian did not avoid her but allowed the girl to hug her. The latter had been recuperating at home for so long, she finally could come back to school.
To be honest, the person Yun Jian missed the most when she was in school for these few weeks was Chen Xinyi. Initially, she had thought that she would not be making any more friends aside from Lu Feiyan after she left Xinjiang Town but meeting Chen Xinyi—as well as Zhang Shaofeng and others—was unexpected.
“Let go. Class is starting soon.” Although she was quite thrilled as well, Yun Jian pressed her lips together and told Chen Xinyi flatly.
“Hehe, don’t be like this. I know you’re super excited too, Jianjian!” Chen Xinyi whined cutely hugging Yun Jian’s arm and only let her go after the bell for class rang.
They had evening revision on Tuesdays and it was already 8pm by the time the session ended. Since Yun Jian and her peers were sitting for the Senior High School Entrance Examination soon, the evening revisions were often taken up by teachers of different subjects and they would even delay the dismissal for some ten minutes and more.
By the time the session was dismissed today, the students from other grades, whether they stayed home or boarded in school, would have been more or less gone.
Zhang Shaofeng and Zhang Jian went to the field for some training after the evening revision before they headed home, so Yun Jian and Chen Xinyi left the school first.
The night breeze was chilly, making Chen Xinyi huddle close to Yun Jian as she hooked arms with her and made the turn heading home. Just as they turned the corner, Yun Jian felt something amiss.
“Hah, brothers, this girl’s boyfriend is the one who kicked me in the amusement park yesterday!”
Yun Jian could recognize the person in front of the group opposite of them immediately. It was Yu Hui, boyfriend of Yang Caidie who stepped on Duan Li’s foot and refused to apologize.
He was currently leading some 20 youngsters and several more who were here just to watch the show with an arm wrapped around Yang Caidie to surround Yun Jian and Chen Xinyi. It was easy to tell from the situation that Yu Hui and the group were here for trouble.
Yun Jian narrowed her eyes and wore a mystifying smile.
