316 The Teacher Is At Fault For Not Being Stric

    If Gu Nianjia did not even fear about dropping out, she had probably truly given up on herself.

    When Zhang Jingyu heard Gu Nianjia's words, he began laughing as his face lit up.

    Through the refraction of light on the lenses of the glasses he wore, his eyes seemed to be shining like a brightly lit star.

    "At least you are aware of the possibility of failing." Zhang Jingyu raised his brows at Gu Nianjia.

    "And you are the source of the problem." Gu Nianjia snorted with a pout. "They are against me all because of you. I am never going to your class again."

    As Gu Nianjia spoke, she even shoved Zhang Jingyu with her hand.

    Lin Yiqian was still stunned by what she had just witnessed.

    Was this how students and teachers interacted these days?

    Despite Gu Nianjia's disrespectful behavior, Zhang Jingyu did not seem to be upset. Instead, a smile appeared on his face. "Are you saying that I should not fail you?"

    "You ought to know that," Gu Nianjia said in a huff before turning her face away from him.

    Apart from when Lin Yiqian was with Gu Nianshen and Xi Xia, this was the first time she was completely ignored in public.

    After a while, Lin Yiqian stopped looking surprised as she observed the way Gu Nianjia vented on Zhang Jingyu.

    Suddenly, Zhang Jingyu shifted his gaze to Lin Yiqian as if he finally acknowledged that something was amiss.

    Lin Yiqian smiled as she finally had an opportunity to introduce herself. "I am Gu Nianjia's sister-in-law."

    "Sister-in-law, huh?" Zhang Jingyu nodded.

    Lin Yiqian felt that she needed to further analyze the way this man spoke.

    Although the sentence was supposed to end with a question mark, he did not speak as if he was asking a question.

    After pondering for a moment, Lin Yiqian decided to speak diplomatically. "Sorry for the trouble Gu Nianjia has caused, Professor Zhang."

    Gu Nianjia immediately rolled her eyes at Zhang Jingyu. "Tsk. He's the one causing me problems. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have needed to worry about failing any subjects. Other teachers would definitely not have failed me. I'm so unlucky."

    In other words, Gu Nianjia was saying that she could easily pass all her subjects if not for such a strict and heartless professor like Zhang Jingyu.

    As a gust of wind blew past them, Gu Nianjia's hair turned messy. Several strands of hair dangling in front of her face tickled her. Annoyed, she brushed them aside with her hand.

    She certainly seemed agitated.

    However, Zhang Jingyu seemed to be completely calm in contrast.

    "You're an art student but you can't even draw a circle. What should we do?" He sighed.

    Lin Yiqian remained silent.

    She could not comprehend how an art student could not even draw a circle.

    Her nephew was only five and could already draw a perfect circle.

    'Hold on a second.' Lin Yiqian thought. The most important detail to note here was the way Professor Zhang had spoken. He actually sounded like a mother who was worried sick about her daughter.

    To Lin Yiqian, Zhang Jingyu was acting almost like how Song Changlin would pamper Gu Nianjia.

    Gu Nianjia doubted herself for a second when she heard Zhang Jingyu sighing. However, as soon as she turned her head around to face him, she sounded fully confident. "The teacher is at fault for not being strict."

    'How dare this pretentious man embarrass me in front of Lin Yiqian? Ughh. I'm so upset!' Gu Nianjia thought.

    Lin Yiqian could not bring herself to speak.

    If she were Gu Nianjia's professor, she would have beaten her up. There was no point in being nice to a student like Gu Nianjia.

    However, Professor Zhang did not seem the slightest bit bothered. Instead, he had the same helpless expression on his face. It was as if he had already gotten used to this.

    Meanwhile, Lin Yiqian was feeling increasingly curious about Professor Zhang as she scanned him up and down.

    Without responding to Gu Nianjia, Zhang Jingyu smiled helplessly before changing the topic. "I've gone to the hospital to check things out. It seems that Dan Bingbing was not that seriously injured. It was only a minor scratch."
