When Agnes rushed in, Kerri was being pinned down on the lab bench by a few people
Cecile was holding a scalpel, lightly tracing it across Kerri’s face, “So you had the audacity to seduce Prince, huh? I’m going to ruin your pretty face. Let’s see if Prince will even glance at you after that!”
Kerri kept trying to explain, “I really did not seduce him We’re both medical students in the same research group. Talking is normal. I spoke to him and you are accusing me of seducing him. If you occasionally chew a bone, should I call you a dog? Would you accept that?”
Cecile angrily shot back, “How dare you insult me? You’re really too big for your boots. I think it’s about time someone taught you a lesson.”
The scalpel in her hand was about to slash down.
“Stop” Agnes shouted from the doorway.
Everyone turned to look at the door, Cecile also froze when she saw Agnes.
Agnes was well–known at school. Not only because of her pretty face, but also because of her family background. She was the daughter of Preston, a big shot in the entertainment industry, who controlled Starlight International Group, one of the biggest talent agencies in the country.
Cecile had always wanted to befriend Agnes at school because she was studying acting. But Agnes didn’t give her the time of day, and even reported the bullying incident that nearly got Cecile expelled. This created a deep–seated animosity between them.
Cecile warned, “Agnes, you better keep your nose out of my business, or we’ll settle old scores today.”
Agnes had already walked over, snatching the scalpel from Cecile’s hand, “I’m stepping in. Don’t you remember what the principal said last time? It doesn’t matter if you’re the mayor’s daughter; if there was another bullying incident, you would be expelled.”
A smug smile played on Cecile’s lips, “Don’t worry, that won’t happen. The principal is running for Director of Education. He won’t lose my dad’s political support over this petty stuff.”
“What if I post everything that just happened online?”
Agnes held up her phone, “I’ve recorded it all. If I use my dad’s resources, your violent bullying will be known nationwide. Maybe your dad will cut ties with you under pressure, and your path to stardom will definitely be over.”
Before Agnes could finish, Cecile lunged for her phone.
Agnes stepped back, holding the phone high, “Save your energy, I’ve already saved it to the cloud. Even if you smash my phone, you’ll still be tomorrow’s hot news.” Cecile was trembling with rage, but she was always arrogant and cold–hearted. She grabbed another razor blade from the lab bench and aimed at Kerri’s face, “Agnès, you should know how much I hate being threatened. Delete all the videos now, or your friend is going to get hurt. If you dare to ruin my future, I’ll ruin your friend’s face.”
“What the hell is going on here?” A cold voice echoed from behind.
Amid the standoff, a tall figure appeared at the lab door.
“It’s Prince!” A girl beside Cecile squealed.
Agnes turned around. Standing in the doorway was the main reason behind all the bullying incidents at school – the so–called Prince Frost, Ryder!
