“Its alright commenter above, its alright.”
Many had apologized.
But there were still a few who carried a skeptical attitude.
“Its still too early to say.
Who knows if the schools saying this just to protect Lu Man”
“I wont dare to underestimate the power of influence.”
There was still a portion of netizens, the ones who always roasted Lu Man, insistent on their views that the school was protecting Lu Man.
“The principal of the National Film Academy put it so nicely, but when was he ever on a different side from Lu Man”
“Person above, youre funny.
Lu Man is right, so why cant we support her When is Lu Man ever wrong”
Just as the argument was coming to a boil, someone commented: “Stop arguing.
If you all dont believe the words of the National Film Academys principal, will you believe the principal of the National Drama Academy”
“What do you mean”
“Principal Zhang of the National Drama Academy has also spoken.
Heres the link.”
Everyone clicked on the link and went straight to Principal Zhangs main page.
Only to see Principal Zhang reposting Principal Lius words, saying: “This is a decision made by the four academies together, and were thankful for Lu Mans sacrifice and work for the larger picture.
I cant stand for Lu Man being maligned and criticized on purpose despite clearly sacrificing so much.
Lu Man isnt my schools student, though she did nearly become one.
As always, Ive regretted missing out on having Lu Man, whos such a talent.
“Every time Lu Man won another glory for the National Film Academy, Im both angry and rueful.
Thinking that if Lu Man were a student in my school, the glory would be ours.
As such, I always have conflicted feelings towards Lu Man.
I both admire her but also wish that she wasnt that mighty.
Not to mention the competitive relationship that the National Drama Academy and the National Film Academy have always had.
Even if you were an outsider, everyone knows it clearly.
Both our schools have the relationship of feeling one is good and the other is better.
But this time, weve decided to ignore our differences and unite.
I hope everyone will stop misunderstanding Lu Man and even maligning her.”
“My gosh, never thought that Principal Zhang from the National Drama Academy will also speak up.”
Just like Principal Zhang said, the National Drama Academy and the National Film Academy are competitors, and weve never seen them speak up for the other party before.
It can been seen that this time, it is a unanimous decision by the four schools and Lu Man gave up her chance to go to New York for the bigger picture.”
“I just want to ask, just how many of us can do it like Lu Man You clearly have a chance to upgrade your skills and better yourself.
Especially Lu Man, who always has her abilities questioned ever since the beginning.
For her, the chance to go to New York is far more important compared to the others.
But she gave up on that so that she could represent her school in the competition.
Between personal gains and losses versus a groups interests, I want to ask, how many of you can truly give up personal gains for the group”
“The students going to New York this time are all the best chosen from each school.
Asking anyone of them to stay means increasing the schools fighting chance.
Isnt it clear now where the problem is Everyone chose to better themselves while only Lu Man chose the school.”
Lu Man read until here and felt embarrassed.
She really didnt wish to go…
Just then, Principal Liu called her.
Afraid that she would go onto the Net and speak frankly with that honest attitude of hers, he hurriedly instructed Lu Man in advance: “Lu Man ah, dont you go and post so honestly this time! Were all saying that youre sacrificing for the school, and no one would know that you originally didnt want to go, would they Even if the person who exposed this knew, no one will believe her even if she said it.
Dont you go and say so yourself!”
