I Became Cinderella’s Vicious Stepsister: 44

The head of the dormitory exclaimed in shock, white feathers scattered all over the room, clothes and jewelry littered the floor. A girl in a purple dress stood next to a birdcage, with a pair of scissors in one hand and blood dripping from the other.

A small pool of red had already formed on the floor.

“…The scissors were right here…” the girl pointed at the wardrobe, “as soon as I opened the door, I was stabbed.”

The bloodstains indeed went from the wardrobe door to the vicinity of the birdcage.

Banban called out twice:

[That’s right! That’s right!]

After being glared at by Liu Yu, Banban stopped calling.

The dormitory head was extremely angry and she inspected the room.

“No! No! The Bright Academy cannot tolerate such despicable behavior! I must find out who did it! Let me see, let me see…the lock is intact, except for your belongings, everything else is perfectly preserved…who lives with you…”

She took out a book from somewhere, “Here! Mary Carlo, from the Carlo royal family, with a hot temper…possessing strong destructive desires…”

Liu Yu could vaguely see the dense small print on the page belonging to “Mary Carlo”.

Does everyone have such a detailed record when they enter school?

At this moment, Gaia had already walked up to her, silently staring at her hand.

Only then did she notice how straight his nose was, his thin lips pursed, with some damage in between, revealing a touch of dazzling red—this was the only heavy color on his fair translucent face.

“Does it hurt?”

A strand of silver hair fell on his cheek.

“It hurts.”

Liu Yu stared at his face, lost in her thoughts:

Mary should be at the temple by now, I don’t know how a dark apostle can walk in a place filled with the power of light, but since Louis has promised her, he must have a way, otherwise he would have been discovered long ago…

“Bella, what are you thinking about?”

“I’m thinking,” Liu Yu quickly reacted, “I don’t want to stay in this room anymore.”

She originally just wanted to borrow Mary’s medicine, but now that she had attacked her without any scruples, she no longer needed to show mercy.

Keeping her here, letting Leslie see the “truth”—

It would definitely be better to clear herself, that much was obvious.

Of course, she couldn’t stay near a minefield that could go off at any time: thankfully, Mary had handed over ready-made evidence, along with the “scissors causing harm” that she handed to her…

Gaia took out some ointment from his pocket, squeezed out a bit, and spread it on her “second tearing” finger.

The dripping blood mixed with the green ointment, “staining” his clean and slender fingers as well.

Liu Yu let out a soft “hiss”, feeling inexplicably embarrassed:

“Gaia, this medicine… isn’t used for this.”

“Both are wounds.”

After Gaia finished applying the ointment, he handed it to Liu Yu, “Put it away, apply it again at night…”

He pursed his lips, “Apply it one more time.”

The dormitory head, holding the book, circled the room once more, and then circled back to Liu Yu, staring at her with her sparkling, four-lensed fish eyes:

“This incident was most likely done by Mary Carlo.”

“The lock is intact, so it is impossible for someone to break in, there were no fluctuations in magic, and her belongings are all intact…it can only be an inside job. Have you offended her?”

“I, I…” The girl seemed extremely surprised, flustered, and said, “Although we had some unpleasantness before, she reconciled with me yesterday.”

She explained what happened when Mary raised a glass to her at the party.

“Wait,” the dormitory head suddenly realized something, “Mary Carlo also likes Mr. Leslie?”

“Yes, I think so.”

The girl looked anxiously at Gaia.

But she saw that he had already walked up to the birdcage and was facing Banban through the iron bars.

Liu Yu’s heart tightened once again, she didn’t know if the light power attached to Banban would resonate with Gaia.

“…So, it was very reasonable to say that Mary Carlo gave you a whip yesterday, and then destroyed your things after you didn’t return all night…it is a reasonable inference and consistent with her consistent behavior…”

“You know I didn’t come back last night?”

The girl’s face suddenly turned as red as a ripe apple.

“Of course!” The dormitory head stuffed the book back into the back pocket of her pants and raised her head proudly, “Oh, youth, what a wonderful time!”

“But before that…Miss Fergus, Mr. Leslie, you have to go to class first!”

“But I don’t have any clothes to change into…”

“What’s the problem with that.” The dormitory head, like performing magic, pulled out a… burlap skirt from where she pulled out the book?

“Take it, of course…” she blinked, “no need to thank me.”

Liu Yu took the skirt and walked to the bathroom.

Before entering the door, she glanced back and saw that Gaia had already reached the doorway.
