MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE, VOLUME 7 - Season 11 Episode 46
Lin Che chuckled and looked at the woman in front of her sarcastically.
Seeing that Lin Che had nothing else to say, Caicai’s mother said even more mockingly, “Judging by your appearance, you’re young and have never looked after your child. Let me tell you this. You don’t even take responsibility for your own child. You don’t even bother with him and only care about being young and beautiful. I have no respect at all for such mothers.”
Caicai’s mother felt that the woman in front of her was irksome just from her looks alone. She was a mother but still looked so fresh. At first glance, she had indeed not been able to tell that she was a mother. She still looked like a college student who had just graduated. She did not look like a mother at all.
A mother like this had to be an irresponsible one.
Lin Che said, “I’m clear about every single thing my child does. Furthermore, I also trust my Niannian. I know that he is absolutely not such a person. The first thing a mother must do is to understand and trust her own child. I trust him and I know him too. So I definitely won’t allow anyone to slander him.”
“You trust him just like that? You trust him, but we don’t.”
“Precisely. We refuse to believe you.”
“Caicai’s mother, don’t say anything more to someone like this.”
Lin Che narrowed her eyes. By this time, the teacher had sensed that something was wrong and was already walking here.
“Dear mothers, dear mothers…”
The teacher hastily protected Lin Che first. She knew that it was Lin Che whom they could not afford to offend. As for the rest of them, they could be dealt with easily.
“Niannian’s mother, what’s going on?”
Lin Che said, “Teacher, they said that my Niannian behaves like a king here. I want to know if that is really the case.”
The teacher hastily said, “Of course not. Niannian is particularly sensible and obedient. He’s very intelligent in school as well. He does not behave at all like he’s the king.”
When the mothers saw the way the teacher was so afraid of her, they thought disdainfully to themselves, What kind of teacher was this?
They were usually very polite to the teacher. They even thought up ways and schemes to sneak her some red packets during Chinese New Year and other festivities. But she did not necessarily accept them. Wasn’t this just the way things were when their children went to school? The teachers were all being flattered by the parents, who wanted the teachers to treat their respective children better.
These teachers were usually full of airs in front of them too. Why were they so polite to her now?
The mothers could not take this lying down and felt disheartened as well.
Lin Che asked, “Really?”
Lin Che also knew that Niannian’s status was special and the teacher may not dare to criticize him either.
But Lin Che did indeed believe that Niannian knew how to behave appropriately.
The teacher looked as if she was making an oath and was completely certain. “In the eyes of the students, Niannian has always been a heroic figure. I’m not boasting about this. He has the power to rally supporters. At such a young age, he already has the air of a general. Everyone loves to put him at the center of attention. Furthermore, he’s so smart and learns so quickly too. He knows even more than the teachers. He’s a rare breed of child genius.”
Hearing the teacher praise the child so extravagantly, the mothers found it even more unbelievable.
How could he be a child genius? She made him sound like a prodigy. That was completely impossible.
She must have been deliberately flattering Lin Che.
Lin Che said, “All these aren’t important. Before you learn how to do things, you must learn how to behave first. I’ve always educated Niannian this way. I believe that Niannian is definitely not as they describe him.”
“Yes, yes. Niannian’s mother, have a seat here. Over here.”
The teacher felt that Lin Che was still in danger sitting her. It was better to bring her to a safer place.
Thus, she invited Lin Che to the lounge.
The mothers sat there and began speaking ill of Lin Che in an absolutely unrestrained manner.
“Look at her. I can’t believe she’s a mother.”
“Precisely. She probably used that time to groom herself.”
“She probably relied on that face to marry a rich husband. Even the teacher was flattering her. The teachers here place too much emphasis on power.”
“Precisely. Since the teacher is sucking up to her so much, it must be fake. How can a child be that impressive?”
As the parents were talking about it, the event had already started in front. The children appeared on stage together and started to perform each of the programs they had put together.
On the side, Lin Che was also watching. Although the programs by the children were childish, everyone had a great time watching because their own children were performing.
Lin Che did not see Gu Shinian. She said to Dongzi beside her, “Go and search for Niannian. You must bring him back to me.”
No matter what, she had to personally ask Niannian how school was going for him and why exactly he was avoiding her today.
Dongzi took her instructions and retreated.
Meanwhile, on Niannian’s end, his shadow guards had already told him about what had happened.
“Little Young Master, Madam came here earlier. She even got into a spat with the mothers in front.”
Gu Shinian frowned and asked for the details.
Gu Shinian narrowed his eyes.
He could not believe something like this had happened…
A while later, they started playing games on the stage outside.
The game was a game of intellect. The child of Caicai’s mother, Caicai, was one of the children playing. Although Caicai’s performance was average, Caicai’s mother still felt very happy seeing her child performing.
Everyone else quickly praised her, saying that he was so amazing. He performed in the midst of so many children in such a huge kindergarten. Their own children could not even go on stage.
However, the teacher subsequently received news from Gu Shinian all of a sudden.
Gu Shinian immediately said, “Teacher, I want to perform.”
If it were anyone else, the teacher would have probably said bluntly, “Don’t create trouble here. Go somewhere else.”
But when she saw that it was Gu Shinian, she did not say so. She asked Gu Shinian, “Niannian, what do you want to perform? But you didn’t tell me in advance. None of us prepared anything. What should we do?”
“That’s because I didn’t know that my mother was coming before this. Now that my mother is here, I plan to give my mother a surprise. I hope that the Teacher can help me fulfill my wish.”
The teacher was in a difficult position. She did not dare to make a decision on her own and quickly went to ask the director first.
The director thought about it and nodded in agreement. He waved his hand and said helplessly, “Let him do it.”
The teacher quickly replied Niannian, saying, “Alright. I support you. Tell me what you want to perform.”
In reality, Gu Shinian had such an adorable appearance. Just by sitting there, everyone would find him pleasing to the eye. He was quite pleasant to watch, even without performing anything. Of course, the teachers liked him. But his family background was too formidable. They were afraid of offending him, so they did not dare to go too close to him.
But they could not remember Gu Shinian ever talking about his talents. Back then, they had wanted him to perform because it would seem like a bit of a waste for such a beautiful child not to perform. However, he rejected all their suggestions and did not perform.
Now that he suddenly said he wanted to perform, the teachers were very glad too.
But they were worried that he would ruin the performance if he did not know how to do anything. He had not prepared anything in advance either and was going to perform.
He said, “I can perform speed memory. As long as I have read the book before, it will be in my memory after reading it just once.”
Gu Shinian said, “Come on, I’m ready anytime.”
He was very intelligent. At the same time, he had actually inherited Gu Jingze’s innate ability of memory. He had a very powerful memory.
Of course, he had known from a young age that he had always been faster than everyone else at memorizing things.
