Chapter 21

The Woods family was a group of individuals whom the people in San Joto would stay away from, as messing with them was inviting trouble. Norah saw this and said boldly, “Grandpa… I didn’t mean it. She had just arrived at school and did not know who Austin was.”

It sounded like she was defending Nicole, but it actually was to say that Nicole was the one who first used violence.

Nicole was not too happy. Just when she was about to rebut, Daniel spoke. “Dad, Nicole is not to blame. I have looked into the ins and outs of the matter. Austin openly tried to grab Nicole. Do we still have to put up with that?”

Seeing the righteous indignation of Daniel and Nicole, Karen said sarcastically, “Daniel, Austin is Mr. Woods Sr.’s grandson. We are in trouble by offending him. I heard Snow say that Austin threatened to get Nicole expelled from the school.” Karen threw a bombshell.

“Expulsion?” Mr. Riddle Sr. frowned immediately. It was only last night that Mr. Ellison invited Nicole into the school, and he would expel her because she had offended Austin? 

“What do you think? Austin’s dad was a school trustee, and the students who offended Austin before did not seem to have a good ending.” Karen was kicking Nicole when she was down, as if Nicole’s expulsion was a foregone conclusion. Norah immediately looked at Nicole expectantly. 

“If that is the case, no one can help you, Nicole.”

“I am not asking anyone for help.” Nicole frowned. Karen thought Nicole was unrepentant and immediately said, “Dad, see this girl? She still doesn’t admit her fault.”

“What wrong have I done?” Nicole frowned.
