Chapter 706: As Long as She’s Safe
Yao Rong breathed a sigh of relief. “You shouldn’t apologize for something you couldn’t control,” he quickly comforted, grabbing her backpack and placing it on a shelf next to him. “Let’s eat. You must be hungry after everything that’s happened. It’s good that you’re back.”
All he cared about was that she was safe.
This entire day was truly a shock to all of them. His heart was practically racing in his chest the minute he found out about the earthquake. He was about to sprint to the cliff if it hadn’t been for the phone call.
He was only happy that she had finally returned.
“Next time, you should carry an emergency kit, where you’ll find all the bandages and ointments you’d need. We’ll even get you a compass.”
Yao Rong pursed his lips as he handed her a plate with a mix of pork and veggies.
Jiang Wan nodded in agreement as she placed a chicken drumstick on Yao Tang’s plate. “We don’t have to worry about that now though,” she quickly said. “The best thing is that you’re safe. We’ll just have to prepare if ever something like this happens again.”
After a happy dinner with her family, Yao Tang went upstairs to give President Tana call.
She didn’t know if he was aware of what had happened, but she didn’t want him to worry further if he did. She should at the very least inform him that she was safe.
At that time, President Tan was right at the entrance of Lingyun Peak. He was gritting his teeth as he waved his arms exasperatedly in the air.

“Why can’t you just let me in? Do you know my disciple’s in there? I’ve brought people to help me too! What’s wrong with you?” His panicked voice echoed across the vicinity.
He stared at the personnel blocking his way with wide eyes and tight lips.
At that moment, the path up to the mountain had already been sealed off, and no outsiders were allowed to enter.
They told him that they already had it covered, but Tan Xian was still anxious.
“I’m sorry, Sir, but the mountain has already been sealed out. No one is allowed any entry. This is also for your safety,” they said. “Please don’t make things difficult for us.”
The rescue team member in uniform appeared troubled by his appearance, but he was still quite firm with his statement.
It wasn’t safe for them.
“If your child was trapped in there, do you think you’ll still be following the rules?” he demanded.
It was already reported on the news that high school students had been trapped. There were others who had died from the incident.
His mind immediately went back to Yao Tang. Just the thought of her in danger was enough to make his heart ache.
This was his precious student. Nothing should happen to her!
“This…” The rescue team was speechless. “I don’t know, but sir, you really can’t go up there! We’re still at risk of after-shocks. We promise you that we’re already trying our best. I’m sure your disciple is fine.”
A professor must’ve seen the situation because he quickly advised, “President Tan, why don’t we wait here instead? Maybe your disciple will show up soon.”
After a slow nod, he ended up staying there for more than half an hour.
The more he waited, the more anxious he became. Every time he’d see a student being carried out there, he felt worried.

He felt a twinge in his heart.
If this continued, he’d have a heart attack!
President Tan’s phone rang. Furrowing his eyebrows, he reached out for his phone and looked at the screen.
She was safe! Even then, he was still worried about her. He quickly brought the phone to his ear.
“Yao Tang! Are you okay? What happened?”
Yao Tang was sitting on her bed. When she heard President Tan’s worried voice, she couldn’t help but frown. “Master, where are you now? The background’s noisy.”
If she wasn’t mistaken, she could hear the voice of someone from the rescue team.
“Don’t worry about me now,” he said quickly.
“Just answer me, are you okay?”
“Yes, I’ve already returned home,” she responded sincerely. “You don’t have to worry. Everything’s fine.”
“That’s good. That’s good.”
President Tan repeated, breathing a sigh of relief.
