The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 211 - Apple and Milk Candy

Chapter 211: Apple and Milk Candy

It was completely dark when Ning Li got back to the Ye family home.

When she entered the house, the Ye family was just about to start dinner.

Su Yuan had cooked this dinner herself. It was very sumptuous and was all of Ye Ming and Ye Ci’s favorites.

Ye Ming’s face was still glum, but perhaps taking into account the fact that Ye Ci and Ye Cheng were there, he did not say anything to Su Yuan.

This was why Su Yuan was secretly relieved.

However, when she saw Ning Li, the anger that she had suppressed all day surged again.

As usual, Ning Li simply greeted them and went upstairs by herself.

Su Yuan’s hand that was holding her chopsticks trembled slightly.

After finally finishing the meal, Su Yuan immediately went up to look for Ning Li.

Ning Li’s room door was always locked, so Su Yuan knocked on the door for a long time before Ning Li came out.

Su Yuan looked at her with exasperation.

“Ning Li, shouldn’t you explain what happened yesterday?”

After the initial shock, Su Yuan had carefully thought back on the incident. The more she thought about it, the more she felt that Ning Li had done it on purpose.

This girl just wanted to openly go against the Ye family and embarrass them!

Ning Li looked at her dully. “What do you want me to say?”

“Yesterday’s celebration banquet had been organized by your Uncle Ye specifically for you and Lil Ci, but look what you did! Ning Li, even if you didn’t like it, you could have just told us. Why did you have to do this?”

Su Yuan felt incredulous. “Are you satisfied now that it’s come to this?”

Ning Li raised her eyebrows slightly.

‘I have to say…I am quite satisfied.’

Lu Huaiyu always did things smoothly and ruthlessly without giving others room to maneuver.

This way, not only had he openly slapped the Ye family in the face, he had indirectly told everyone that he did not get along with the Ye family.

Everyone would have to consider this whenever they dealt with the Ye family in the future.

Thus, Ning Li knew very well that she did not just owe Lu Huaiyu a meal for all that he had done.

“Isn’t everyone quite happy?” Ning Li said.

“You were the one who asked me to tutor her before, so aren’t you satisfied with her grades now?”

Su Yuan was rendered speechless.

Right, Su Yuan was the one who had asked Ning Li to do that, and it was indeed because of Ning Li’s help that Ye Ci could get into fifth place in the province.

If not, they would not have held the celebration banquet last night.

“I congratulated her when she did well, so is it wrong for others to congratulate me when I did well in the exams?” Ning Li asked in a light voice.

Su Yuan opened her mouth, but she did not know how to refute this.

After a long time, Su Yuan said, “But you…”

“Don’t worry. I’ll move out and won’t be in your way in a few months,” Ning Li said, “So, you’d better have more patience to hold out until then.”

Su Yuan’s expression changed slightly.

There were still about seven months left until Ning Li’s eighteenth birthday.

At that time, Ning Li would have finished her college entrance exams as well.

What Su Yuan had originally thought was that once Ning Li went to college, they would no longer have the obligation to continue raising Ning Li.

Once Ning Li was gone, she would no longer be connected to the Ye family and Su Yuan.

However, when Ning Li had exposed her thoughts so directly, Su Yuan felt embarrassed, as if someone had slapped her in the face fiercely. It was burning and painful.

Ning Li turned around and closed the door behind her.

This time, Su Yuan did not pester her again and only stood in front of the door for a while. She then turned to leave.

Ning Li pulled over a chair and began to unpack her backpack.

A piece of candy fell onto the table.

It was the same one that Lu Huaiyu had stuffed into her hand last night.

She had taken it to Yunding Fenghua and brought it back here.

Ning Li peeled off the candy wrapper.

The rich chocolate filled her mouth, and the hazelnut filling in the middle was very sweet and flavorful.

Ning Li looked at the candy jar on the table.

Lu Huaiyu had given her candy several times, but she did not always eat it.

The ones that were left behind were put in that jar with a small paper boat at the bottom of it.

Ning Li sat on the chair with her hands on her knees as she stared at it quietly.

The room was very quiet, and the light from the lamp reflected onto the colorful glass jar.

After a long time, she murmured, “Lu Huaiyu…”

Monday.

Ning Li went to her seat and was about to stuff her backpack in the drawer when she found that there was something inside.

She pulled it out and saw a bunch of gift boxes.

‘What’s this…’

Looking at the red and green colors, Ning Li suddenly realized something.

Today was Christmas Eve.

Most of these boxes were filled with apples.

Of course, there were also some love letters interspersed in between them.

Although Ning Li only focused on her studies and usually threw out all the love letters she received, on such a special day, everyone was in high spirits and had sent her more gifts.

“Whoa, Ning Li! Did you plant an apple tree here?”

He Xiaochen walked in and was blown away when she saw the pile of gifts.

She then looked at the small box in her hand with some regret.

“This makes mine look so ugly!”

Ning Li understood something. “Is that for me?”

“Yeah…” He Xiaochen handed over the small gift box in shame.

“I took half an hour to choose it yesterday and I still lost! D*mn it!”

Ning Li smiled slightly as she took the box and placed it on top of the bookshelf.

“Thank you…but I didn’t prepare a gift for you yet…”

“No, it’s alright!”

He Xiaochen was happy to see that her gift had won the goddess’s favor.

“I’m glad you like it!”

Being able to see Ning Li’s stunning beauty up close every day was already a gift for her.

“But…what are you gonna do with so many apples? It’s too wasteful to throw them away, right?”

Ning Li looked around. “Then let’s distribute it to everyone.”

Lin Zhouyang was the first to rush over. “You’re too kind, Ning Li!”

With his help, the boxes were quickly distributed.

Pei Song happened to walk in and seemed to have just arrived.

Ning Li casually handed one to him.

Pei Song was stunned when he saw all the boxes that had been distributed.

Lin Zhouyang suddenly said, “Hey, Ning Li. Besides apples, why is there milk candy in here too?”
