Chapter 279 The Price Of Lying
- Shang Qing explained, “She exposed my lie and scolded me in front of my classmate. I felt guilty, and at the same time, I was so angry! I hated her, but I dared not go against her because I was still young at that time. If I went against her and were targeted by her, my situation would only worsen because no one would help me.”
- She continued, “Even after seeing that we were about to be late for class, my stepmother didn't stop scolding and spouting those nasty words. My classmate politely stated that we were almost late and requested that she let us go to school first. As a result, my stepmother stared at my friend furiously. My stepmother knew my friend was not a child from a wealthy family based on her outfit, so she went on and started mocking her. She said birds of a feather flock together and that my friend helped me lie. Then, she said she would expose us in front of our teachers and the entire school. Her words frightened my classmate...”
- Shang Qing covered her mouth and smirked. She noticed that Su Wei was somewhat moved based on how he was looking at her. I must say that his sympathy is more acceptable than everyone else. It seems like he's able to understand and empathize with me.
