C7 Manipulation

The people around them had been whispering to each other all this time. They even thought that it was the bud of Zhang Lu that Gu Qingyue had killed.

Gu Qingyue was not surprised by Meng Lai's reaction. She focused on Meng Lai's sliding hands on Zhang Lu's body.

At the same time, he knew Zhang Lu's character from her memories. She was always timid, like jumping off a building. Zhang Lu really wouldn't have the courage to do such a thing.

Gu Qingyue looked at Zhang Lu's corpse and fell into deep thought. Based on Zhang Lu's personality, she would probably be scared stiff by standing outside the building, let alone jumping off. As for Zhang Lu, she was a timid person who had offended quite a few people. It could be determined that it was him who killed her.

Even if he was killed, he definitely wouldn't be Gu Qingyue from before. Everyone knew that Gu Qingyue and Zhang Lu had a dispute, but it was just a small matter. Gu Qingyue's brain wouldn't remember such a thing, so she forgot about it.

Lu Beichuan stood at the back and watched Gu Qingyue's back. Seeing Gu Qingyue standing there in a daze, the displeasure in his heart increased even further.

Lu Beichuan heard the whispers of those people and did not intend to stop them. Instead, he acted like it was none of his business and wanted to see how Gu Qingyue would resolve this matter.

The employees who came with Lu Beichuan naturally knew that Gu Qingyue was Lu Beichuan's fiancee, but they did not have any reaction when they saw Gu Qingyue being discussed about Lu Beichuan. They also weighed Gu Qingyue's position in Lu Beichuan's heart.

Gu Qingyue focused on Meng Lai's technique on the corpse and didn't hear any noise from the outside.

Seeing that Gu Qingyue didn't have the slightest reaction, those people arrogantly and straightforwardly came to a conclusion, "It must be Gu Qingyue. Who doesn't know that Zhang Lu died after having a dispute with Gu Qingyue?" The others echoed him.

Meng Lai naturally heard the discussions of those people and frowned. Initially, the discussion in a low voice didn't have too much of an impact, so he kept quiet and didn't say anything. Seeing that the situation was getting worse, Meng Lai raised his head and looked at Gu Qingyue.

Gu Qingyue seemed to have not heard the discussions outside, as she was staring at the scalpel in her hand. Her serious look made it seem as if she loved dissecting corpses.

Gu Qingyue noticed that Meng Lai stopped his hand. She looked up and looked at Meng Lai with a puzzled expression. She was a little dissatisfied with Meng Lai's pause.

Meng Lai's mouth twitched when he saw Gu Qingyue raise her head to look at him.

"Why are you making such a ruckus?" Meng Lai put down the scalpel and shouted at the students. Meng Lai's voice had also successfully pulled Gu Qingyue back from her thoughts and heard the voices of the outside world.

Along with Meng Lai's voice, the sound in the room instantly disappeared and was replaced with silence. Everyone's gaze that was fixated on Gu Qingyue also lowered their heads.

"Right now, nothing has been found out. All of you are just casually discussing and slandering them." "Is that interesting?" Meng Lai went straight to the student who was the most enthusiastic at what he just said.

That classmate blushed after being reprimanded by Meng Lai, not daring to make a sound. When someone beside him mocked him, he blamed it on Gu Qingyue, and the way he looked at Gu Qingyue was full of viciousness.

Gu Qingyue did not care about the opinions of others. She only hoped that Meng Lai could continue his incomplete actions as soon as possible.

In Meng Lai's eyes, Gu Qingyue's silence was like a collection of grievances that she didn't dare to stop. Looking at Gu Qingyue's obese body, Meng Lai felt ashamed of his words and actions. How could he judge a person by his appearance?

He wanted to say something to comfort her, but when his gaze shifted to Gu Qingyue's expressionless face and swallowed it down, he was unable to say anything.

Lu Beichuan was a little surprised by Gu Qingyue's reaction. According to her personality, she should have already started quarrelling with those people before. Maybe they would even start fighting. However, the calm appearance of Gu Qingyue in front of him made Lu Beichuan a little confused.

Subconsciously, he looked at Gu Qingyue more. Although he was a bit surprised, Lu Beichuan still looked cold on the surface.

When his subordinate saw such a good-natured person like Meng Lai, he couldn't help but speak up to protect Gu Qingyue. However, Lu Beichuan still didn't have the slightest reaction and secretly compared himself: Lu Beichuan doesn't like his fiancee, Gu Qingyue. It seems that this is true, we can gossip about it when we go back.

At this time, someone asked Gu Qingyue, "Gu Qingyue, just tell me, was it you who did this thing with Zhang Lu?"

Hearing someone call her, Gu Qingyue turned her head to the source of the voice, trying to see clearly. It was a girl, about 162, with a baby face and long hair that hid some of her features.

It was a very ordinary person. Gu Qingyue searched her memory for her figure, but couldn't find it. She then answered simply, "No."

However, the girl didn't believe him. She didn't let go, as if she was sure that it was Gu Qingyue who killed Zhang Lu. Gu Qingyue found it a little laughable. She didn't want to explain more, so she kept her mouth shut.

Seeing that Gu Qingyue didn't say anything, the girl became even more confident, even calling for the people beside her to come and punish Gu Qingyue.

Lu Beichuan frowned and was a bit unhappy. Although he didn't like Gu Qingyue, Gu Qingyue was still Lu Beichuan's fiancee in name. Naturally, he couldn't let others point their noses at her and interrogate her.

Lu Beichuan was about to step forward to stop them when he heard Meng Lai's voice and stopped in his tracks.

"This is simply nonsense. Have you never read a book or attended a class? " Meng Lai was a bit angry. He never thought that there would be such a lack of quality people among his students. He directly gave Gu Qingyue's verdict of killing regardless of whether it was black and white.

It was rare for Meng Lai to be angry, let alone be angry. Most of those present were girls. Hearing Meng Lai's reprimand, their bodies couldn't help but tremble.

"Professor, everyone knows that Zhang Lu was found dead after her argument with Gu Qingyue not long ago. Gu Qingyue is a suspect." Meng Lai blushed when he heard what the girl said.

"Alright, you said that Gu Qingyue killed Zhang Lu right? Then take out the evidence now, with evidence Gu Qingyue can be sent to Police Station right now." Meng Lai stared at the girl to see what she would do next.

"Professor, this is all in the open. "Why are you so protective of Gu Qingyue?" The girl was a little angry, she did not care about the etiquette and directly questioned Meng Lai.

The surrounding students admired the boldness of the girls. No one dared to speak to Meng Lai like this in so many years.

Meng Lai seized the loophole between the girls and questioned, "So you're saying that you have no proof at all and are just speaking empty words?"

The girl's heart tightened. She looked at the people around her who focused their attention on her. Her face was slightly flushed and she still wanted to say something, but was scared by Meng Lai's glare and held it back.

Meng Lai took a deep breath and said, "How did I teach you all in the past? Everything has to be done based on evidence. If you don't have evidence, then no matter how much you say, it will always be nonsense." With that, he glared at the girl.

The girl took a step back and hid behind the crowd. She lowered her head and said nothing.

Lu Beichuan's gaze had been locked on Gu Qingyue ever since the girl opened her mouth, wanting to see Gu Qingyue's reaction. The more he read, the more puzzlement he felt in his heart, and he could not help but enlarge his knowledge.

Gu Qingyue's reaction was too bland. It was as if the one being accused was not her, but an outsider. Lu Beichuan felt that Gu Qingyue was really different from before.

Seeing that the matter was over, Gu Qingyue felt like she should give a reaction. When Meng Lai looked over, her body trembled and a pitiful expression appeared on her face.

Meng Lai sighed. He was still a little girl.

When Lu Beichuan saw Gu Qingyue's actions, the corner of his mouth couldn't help but twitch. Gu Qingyue was obviously doing this on purpose.

Meng Lai wanted to comfort Gu Qingyue, "About that, Gu Qingyue, right? Don't take this to heart. " Gu Qingyue knew that Meng Lai was trying to comfort her and didn't want her to take it to heart. She wanted to squeeze a bright smile from her face to show her gratitude.

However, what people saw in the eyes of the outside world was not a smile, but the twisted muscles on Gu Qingyue's huge face, constantly changing their appearances. However, no matter how much he changed, he couldn't tell what kind of expression it was. On the contrary, his eyes were squeezed shut.

The corner of Lu Beichuan's mouth twitched in the distance. The employee beside Lu Beichuan wanted to laugh, but he could only bear with it.

Meng Lai couldn't help but cough lightly. The pitiful feelings he just had for Gu Qingyue were instantly washed away by the happiness expressed on Gu Qingyue's face.

Seeing Meng Lai's expression, Gu Qingyue realized that her expression was not good and embarrassedly touched her nose. He stopped struggling and gave up trying to squeeze out a smile. He thanked Meng Lai.

At the same time, his good impression of Meng Lai shot up: Professor Meng's Iron Lord was rumoured to be selfless and true.

Lu Beichuan watched the change in Gu Qingyue from afar. The suspicion in his heart magnified once again as he ran his fingers through his pockets: "If Gu Qingyue wasn't so annoying and fat, then I wouldn't be able to beat her." He really thought that it was a different person. Could an accident really cause such a huge change in a person?

Gu Qingyue didn't know that Lu Beichuan had seen everything she had done. His eyes were still glued to the scene that Meng Lai was maintaining for him. He was only concerned with giving Meng Lai extra points. His heart was filled with pink bubbles as his admiration for Meng Lai grew deeper and deeper.

Meng Lai looked towards Lu Beichuan's direction and could not help but feel puzzled. According to the attitude that Gu Qingyue had when she saw Lu Beichuan, the two of them should be very familiar with each other. However, not only did Lu Beichuan not defend himself, he did not say a word even after receiving such a heavy accusation from Gu Qingyue. It seemed that Gu Qingyue was very familiar with Lu Beichuan, but Lu Beichuan wasn't familiar with Gu Qingyue?

The room returned to its previous silence. Everyone was waiting for Meng Lai's next move. Some people also set their eyes on Gu Qingyue, seemingly dissatisfied with how Meng Lai defended Gu Qingyue so well.
