Chapter 553: She Changed After He Left
Everyone seemed to feel that way.
Now that they sent the Chief Instructor back to his country, his connection with Gu Qingjiu naturally got severed.
After Gu Qingjiu returned to the dormitory, Gu Qian and Chu Lian stared at her.
They had on an expression of indistinct heartache.
“Qingjiu, you’ve more or less recovered from your flu, right?”
Chu Lian got up and asked.
Gu Qingjiu nodded with a smile. “More or less. No need to worry.”
Even the hospital confirmed that Gu Qingjiu was alright already.
Else, she they wouldn’t discharge her.
“Good. You worried us these few days.”
Gu Qian patted her chest.
Chu Lian cast a glance at her, obviously in conflict about what had happened between Qingjiu and the Chief Instructor.
Now that the entire school knew about it, shock overwhelmed everyone.
As for the male lead in this fiasco, he had already gone back to his country. Although it seemed like Gu Qingjiu wasn’t held accountable, one couldn’t help but feel uneasy about this.
Chu Lian saw that Gu Qingjiu looked rather normal after she came back, seemingly not much affected by this incident.
Still, she asked her worriedly, “Qingjiu, are you okay now?”
Gu Qingjiu smiled. “I know you two wish to ask about me and the Chief Instructor.”
It was rare to have friends who cared for her so much. Hence, Gu Qingjiu didn’t pretentiously complain about things.
“I’m not sure about his situation for the time being. He merely left a message saying he’s going back to handle some matters and will be back shortly to see me.”
Her words made Chu Lian and Gu Qian paused in surprise.
The straightforward Gu Qian directly said, “You believe that?”
“Believe? Why should I not believe that?”
Gu Qingjiu said with a faint smile, “There aren’t many people I can trust in my life, but he’s one of them. Of course, I believe his words.”
After she said this, Gu Qian and Chu Lian couldn’t very well say much else.
After all, this was between Gu Qingjiu and the Chief Instructor.
Since they didn’t even have a clear understanding of the actual situation, how could they possibly know the hidden meaning behind this?
Since Gu Qingjiu believed him, that was enough.
Although Gu Qian and Chu Lian both felt that once a person like the Chief Instructor returned to his country, he couldn’t possibly come back.
As for Gu Qingjiu, she would very likely become someone he used to know.
“I never expected the Chief Instructor to be from Penalan.”
As though to liven up the atmosphere, Gu Qian mentioned this matter.
“Mm, he’s from Penalan.”
Gu Qingjiu responded affirmatively.
And then, Gu Qian had no idea how to continue the conversation…
The dormitory was silent. Even the careless Gu Qian could sense that…
Even though Gu Qingjiu didn’t seem much affected on the surface, she was likely more upset than anyone else.
So she shut up and stopped talking.
Just treat it as a scar and let it slowly heal.
Other people shouldn’t poke at someone else’s scars.
In the days that followed, Gu Qingjiu went for training as usual.
She didn’t seem to have changed, but at the same time, there seemed to be something different about her.
The most visible change was her behavior during training.
During class, she was exceptionally serious, and she seemed to put in more vigorous effort during her training than before.
The most visible change was during her combat lessons.
In the past, Gu Qingjiu had been the strongest in combat among her specialization. But now, she seemed to have shown even greater improvement.
When the instructor imparted new knowledge, Gu Qingjiu could absorb it faster than anyone else and also perfectly applied it during the actual practice.
It was torture attending combat lessons with Gu Qingjiu lately.
Before her opponent could get a clear grasp of the situation, Gu Qingjiu would have already slammed them down.
