Chapter 251: Is This What the Ye Family Is Capable Of?

Ning Li had not expected Lu Huaiyu to come. When she heard his words, she momentarily froze.

Lu Huaiyu walked over and took Ning Li’s backpack off of her.

This action could not be more natural.

Pei Song paused for a moment. “That will be too much trouble, so there’s no need for it.”

“You’re all Lili’s classmates and usually look out for her in school, so this little thing is no trouble.”

Lu Huaiyu’s voice was relaxed and deep. His words were polite, with an appropriate detachment.

Ning Li felt that with Pei Song’s character, it was probably urgent since he had taken the initiative to ask.

She said, “Class President, I’ll send the book to you later.”

Since Ning Li said so, Pei Song had no reason to refuse.

He nodded lightly.

“No. 17, Huacheng Avenue. Thanks.” Pei Song told them his home address.

After that, Pei Song and Ren Qian left in the other direction.

“Second Master Lu.” Ye Ci looked at Lu Huaiyu nervously, subconsciously tucking her hair behind her ear as she greeted him.

Cheng Xiangxiang also had not expected Lu Huaiyu to suddenly appear. The arrogant demeanor that she had earlier when talking to Ning Li instantly vanished. She then followed Ye Ci’s example by greeting Lu Huaiyu.

Although Cheng Xiyue and Lu Huaiyu were close friends, Lu Huaiyu barely interacted with Cheng Xiangxiang and Ye Ci.

Moreover, Lu Huaiyu carried himself with a noble and aloof aura that Cheng Xiangxiang did not dare behave reckless in front of him.

Lu Huaiyu swept a faint glance at Cheng Xiangxiang.

For some reason, Cheng Xiangxiang suddenly felt more nervous. ‘Did he hear what I said earlier?’

However, Lu Huaiyu’s gaze quickly moved to Ye Ci.

Ye Ci’s heart was pounding as she worked up the courage to meet Lu Huaiyu’s gaze.

When she looked into his deep bottomless eyes, Ye Ci realized that there was only a bone-chillingly cold indifference.

In an instant, Ye Ci’s heart sank as a strong uneasiness surged. ‘Why did he look at me like that? When did I offend him?’

“Lili.” Lu Huaiyu withdrew his gaze and turned to look at Ning Li. “What do you want to eat?”

Ning Li was not picky. “I’m fine with anything, it’s up to you.”

Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly.

“It’s the end of your exam, so you should choose what you want to eat. Also…”

The corner of his lips hooked up in an extremely faint arc.

“The court trial is over and the results are out, so that’s something worth celebrating too.”

As soon as those words came out, Ye Ci felt a tension in her head.

She looked up in shock and felt as if her heart was being clenched by an invisible hand.

‘The court trial is over… Is he talking about the lawsuit between Ning Li and those social media accounts?’

Ning Li had mentioned this before, but because Ye Ci had been busy with exams in the past few days, she had forgotten about it.

The moment she heard Lu Huaiyu’s words, she suddenly remembered it.

‘The important thing is…what kind of results?!’

Ning Li blinked her eyes.

Ye Ci had already settled this matter, but since she had been busy with exams, her lawyer had not told her about it.

“How was it?”

Lu Huaiyu said, “They’ll compensate, apologize, and pay for what they’ve done. Oh right, the public relations company that contacted them seemed to have some connections with the Ye family. What a coincidence!”

His tone was light, but those words landed heavily in Ye Ci’s ears.

She subconsciously held her breath and clenched her fists under her sleeves.

Lu Huaiyu looked at Ye Ci without really smiling.

“That company’s litigant is Ye Yiming.”

Ye Yiming was Ye Ci’s cousin.

At that moment, Ye Ci’s mind went blank.

Ye Yiming was engaged in social media. That company had a lot of marketing accounts.

Back then, Ye Ci had sent him that video only because of his identity.

She never imagined that they would manage to investigate this.

Ye Ci’s lips were pale. After a long time, she finally mumbled and seemed to be very shocked.

“My cousin’s company? Is the investigation mistaken?”

It was impossible for it to be wrong.

Ye Ci knew how ridiculous that sounded. In a panic, she could only look at Ning Li and said, “Sister Ning Li, I…my cousin knows that you’re living with us, so there’s no way he would do such a thing!”

It was precisely this reason that Ye Yiming had done this.

Ning Li looked at Ye Ci calmly.

Cold sweat gradually broke out on Ye Ci’s forehead. “Perhaps someone in his company took this order privately… If he knew about this, he definitely wouldn’t have agreed to it!”

Cheng Xiangxiang listened to their conversation and gradually understood what was going on.

She looked at Ning Li incredulously.

“Ning Li, you don’t think this has anything to do with Lil Ci, do you? Ever since you arrived, Lil Ci has been so good to you and yet that’s what you think of her?!”

Ning Li suddenly laughed. “I didn’t say anything.”

They were so anxious to defend themselves. Was this not a sign of guilt?

Cheng Xiangxiang was momentarily speechless.

“But…you’re right. The boss of such a big company can’t possibly ask about every detail.” Ning Li seemed to think that what Ye Ci had said was quite reasonable, and asked, “Oh, right…Second Brother, did they find out the source of the video?”

Ye Ci lowered her head slightly. Her brain was buzzing.

‘They probably didn’t… Definitely not! Ye Yiming told me that he had erased all the evidence so it would be impossible to trace it back to me…’

Those marketing accounts were unreliable, so it was not unusual that they had found Ye Yiming’s company, but it would be difficult to dig deeper.

Lu Huaiyu looked at Ning Li.

The girl’s beautiful eyes were radiant with a mischievous glint.

He let out a low laugh. “No.”

Ye Ci was greatly relieved, but her heartbeat was still pounding erratically. Her temples had also started to hurt.

“Oh, that’s a shame.”

Ning Li sighed softly and looked at Ye Ci. “I wanted to tell you the result when it first came out. I didn’t expect it to be such a tough investigation.”

Ye Ci stuttered. “Oh…th-that’s fine… At least those marketing accounts have been punished… Sister Ning Li, I-I’ll apologize to you on behalf of my cousin. I’m really sorry…”

Lu Huaiyu suddenly interrupted her words. “Rather than apologizing, why don’t you go back and advise your cousin to manage his company and staff properly?”

He then snorted faintly.

“It’s so unprofessional to not do a background research before taking an order. Is this what the Ye family is capable of?”

This last sentence was extremely blunt and unforgiving.

It was his judgment of the entire Ye family.

Ye Ci felt extremely humiliated, as if she had just been slapped hard on the face, which felt hot and painful.

Lu Huaiyu went to Ning Li and gently tousled her hair.

“Alright, you don’t need to worry about these things. Just think about what you want to eat.”

Ning Li was in a good mood and looked up at him with gleaming eyes.

“Anything is fine as long as it’s with you.”
