To be honest, Ms. Lu being able to say something like this meant that she was confident Yun Jian would agree to it. After all, her younger brother, Yun Zhu, was studying in her class. It was not like Yun Jian could reject her.
If Yun Jian did reject her... Sure, she could pick faults on Yun Zhu if his elder sister dared do that!
Majority of the teachers did similar things now, exceptions being genuinely great teachers, of course. It was rare to meet a genuinely virtuous teacher who was impartial and did not fall for wealth and profits, so one ought to cherish the teacher if it happened.
Ms. Lu’s victorious expression shocked Diane, Phantom Flame and Spectral Refiner. It was not that what the teacher did surprised the three of them but that... They could obviously tell that Yun Jian loathed the teacher from the moment the latter greeted her—for one.
More importantly, Ms. Lu had already irked Yun Jian so much but she could still stand here in one piece, unscathed! According to Yun Jian’s past character, she would have already snapped the teacher’s neck by now.
Suddenly feeling three intense gazes on her, Ms. Lu turned to see the trio scrutinizing her without a care for tact. She was bewildered and had even put up a hand on her face to pat around, asking Diane after that, “What is it? Is there something on my face?”
Since the trio stayed behind Yun Jian, Ms. Lu guessed that they must be close to Yun Jian. It was crucial to be friends with the target’s friends if one wanted to approach the target. Ms. Lu had thought to get on friendly terms with Diane, Phantom Flame and Spectral Refiner but just as she turned to them and raised the question...
Diane had her arms crossed in front of herself and turned her profile to face Ms. Lu, apparent in her reaction that she was ignoring the latter.
Ms. Lu gulped visibly from that.
How was Diane supposed to answer her if she had to? Could she tell Ms. Lu “I’m not looking at you because you have something on your face but because Yun Jian hasn’t sliced your head off despite you spewing so much nonsense; it’s a miracle so I’m just doing a double take”?
She had half of Country Z’s blood in her. Diane was sure that Ms. Lu would see her as a lunatic if she really said that.
“Cough, cough... Hah...” Ms. Lu had no shame, certainly. When she saw that the trio disregarded her, she coughed in an attempt to cover up the awkwardness.
Right after that, her focus went back to Yun Jian as she asked again, “Yun Zhu’s sister, adding an additional mouth of mine to the banquet shouldn’t be an issue, right? Haha...”
Ms. Lu said it jokingly and even added a chuckle or two for effect, but it caused the passersby in the station to look at her skeptically. She was trying to make it sound like a joke as she talked to Yun Jian and she assumed that Yun Jian would laugh alongside her when she did.
It was an effective way of communication between adults.
Nevertheless, Yun Jian did not even take into account that she was a teacher and try to chuckle along her. Diane, Phantom Flame and Spectral Refiner watched coldly as well.
Ultimately, Yun Jian spoke up in a drawl, “Oh.”
Of course she would not refuse it when someone was pushing their face forward for a slap.
Was this an assent? Ms.. Lu cracked a smile when she heard Yun Jian.
