Both mother and daughter were wary. After all, they were quite frightened of the old man and the old man didn't try looking friendly either. But, he at least didn't speak too harshly, "Help little Cai Er change schools tomorrow so she doesn't have to run into the Mo Family all the time."
"Grandfather, Quan has always been in charge of Little Eggsh.e.l.l's education. You can speak to him about it. I'm going to take Little Eggsh.e.l.l to school now."
Su Youran cleverly brushed the matter off onto Nangong Quan. After all, he was the head of the household.
After receiving Su Youran's response, Elder Nangong did not say another word. He simply nodded his head and watched as the mother and daughter left. The rascal's wife and daughter were certainly cautious around him.
After getting in the car, Little Eggsh.e.l.l tugged on Su Youran's sleeve; at that moment, even the thought of Elder Nangong made her a little scared, "Mommy, why is great-grandfather so scary? Why doesn't he want me to go to school?"
"Great-grandfather's not against Little Eggsh.e.l.l going to school, he simply doesn't want Little Eggsh.e.l.l to get too close to the twins because of some adult reasons," Su Youran explained.
"Then...how about I guarantee that I won't talk to them anymore? Will great-grandfather not force me to change schools if I do that?"
Su Youran felt a little useless for allowing an adult's grudge to implicate a young kid...
So, she stretched out her arms and hugged Little Eggsh.e.l.l, "Little Eggsh.e.l.l, you need to remember that you're not doing anything wrong, OK?"
Little Eggsh.e.l.l dipped her head in disappointment; compromising in the end, "I understand, Mommy."
Whether she changed schools, was still a decision for Nangong Quan to make.
However, as fate would have it, Little Eggsh.e.l.l and the twins ended up running into each other at the school gates
The well-behaved brothers approached Little Eggsh.e.l.l as soon as they saw her and Mo Zixi even tried to talk to her. But, Little Eggsh.e.l.l quickly avoided them.
Mo Zixi looked a little hurt and confused, but Mo Zichen was indifferent.
The young man that took the kids to school turned to Su Youran questioningly and Su Youran explained, "She was scolded earlier today, so she's in a bad mood..."
The man understood and nodded his head, "That's fine."
Actually, not just adults, even kids couldn't handle this sudden change in att.i.tude, especially since Mo Zixi was a brave and playful child. So, after being rejected by Little Eggsh.e.l.l, he was unhappy all the way until lunchtime.
Seeing that his brother wasn't saying anything, Mo Zichen grabbed a slice of cake from the teacher and handed it to him. But, even when he looked at the cake, Mo Zixi was emotionless.
When the chubby boy beside them saw the cake, he cheekily stretched out his arm and knocked the cake out of Mo Zixi's hand. This angered Mo Zixi, "My brother gave me this cake! I'm going to hit you!"
As soon as he said this, Mo Zixi's punch went flying towards the chubby boy...
For kids, this was war!
By the time the teacher arrived, the chubby boy was already lying on the floor with a bleeding nose. The teacher was so frightened that she immediately pointed at Mo Zixi and said, "Tell your parents to come see me tomorrow!"
Mo Zixi looked at Mo Zichen and Mo Zichen looked back at him indifferently.
Did she really want to see their parents?
Soon, the chubby boy's mother found out that her son had been hit. Since their family had a bit of power, she stormed into school demanding to see Mo Zixi, "You were the one that injured my son last time. This time, you did it again!"
"Let me go, let me go! He was wrong to begin with!"
"You have no reason to hit anyone. Let me tell you, I'm going to call your parents here and make them give a public apology!"
"Otherwise, kneel and admit you're wrong, right now!"
"No!" Mo Zixi retaliated, "I don't want to!"
As the scene was quite embarra.s.sing, the chubby boy's mother did not continue complaining in front of everyone. Instead, she returned to the princ.i.p.al's office and demanded that he deal with the matter strictly. She said that she wouldn't settle unless the two kids were kicked out of the school.
After all, her son's nose was bleeding...
How serious was that?
The grade advisor was also furious. So, when she saw the young man that picked up the kids, she said to him, "Tell their parents to come see me tomorrow morning, otherwise, these two kids are getting expelled."
The young man didn't understand the situation. It took him a bit of time before he heard what had happened and realized the little rascal hit someone again.
"OK, I'll go home and speak to their parents," the young man replied.
Although he felt Mo Zixi wasn't wrong for sticking up for himself, the little rascal often forgot how strong he was.
As for the chubby kid, he relied on his mother's position in the school board to do whatever he wanted. So, he deserved to be hit for using his background to bully others at such a young age.
Even so, everyone at school already knew who he was.
After delivering the kids home, the young man reported the entire matter to Tangning. After Tangning heard what happened, she couldn't help but laugh, "He hit him again?"
"The school also requested to see their parents at the grade advisor's office tomorrow," the young man said as he scratched his head.
"Junyi, go home first. You can have the day off tomorrow," Tangning laughed.
"OK," the young man nodded as he returned home after completing his task.
Tangning noticed that Mo Zixi looked a little guilty, so she knelt down and said to him, "You did nothing wrong. Why are you so afraid?"
"Zixi, it's OK to protect your brother, but you need to understand your limits. Do you understand what I mean? You can grab onto the bully, but you can't hit him. You can't actually hit him because it's wrong to hurt others, OK?"
"This time, I'll let it pa.s.s; you can learn from this experience. But, next time, you can't actually hit someone, OK?" Tangning asked patiently.
Mo Zixi glanced at Mo Zichen and the two brothers nodded their heads.
"We will both listen to Mommy..."
But, the annoying thing was, the chubby boy received a bleeding nose...
The little rascal had been too rough.
That night, when Mo Ting arrived home, Tangning explained the situation to him. Mo Zixi immediately stepped forward with his hands clasped and explained, "Mommy, Mommy...he fell over himself..."
Tangning quickly understood that the chubby boy's nose bled because he had fallen over.
"It seems, I have no choice but to visit the school tomorrow. I'll go on my own...I'm relatively gentle. If you go, you'll scare everyone!" Tangning explained.
"How dare they bully the Mo Family's kids?" Mo Ting said coldly.
"If I go tomorrow, they'll know who the kids are," Tangning laughed. Didn't they originally want the kids to keep a low profile?
Who would have thought that they'd cause so much trouble. In just a short span of time, they ended up hitting someone twice!
