Chapter 268 - Do You Want to Make a Phone Call?
The classroom was very quiet as everyone kept their heads down and did the questions on the paper.
An hour later, Ning Li got up and handed in her paper.
With the previous experience, everyone had already expected and accepted it this time.
Ning Li seemed like she was out to take the gold medal for the national finals, so they could not compare to her.
After a silent sigh, most people continued writing their own papers.
Ye Ci looked up and saw that Ning Li was already carrying her bag, ready to leave.
She looked back down at her mostly blank paper and suddenly felt a vague pain in her stomach that felt like cramps.
Ye Ci slumped on the table from the pain.
Li Guangyuan noticed her abnormality and quickly came over.
“Ye Ci, what’s wrong?”
Her lips were pale as she shook her head.
“Nothing, Mr. Li…it’s just…a little stomachache…”
Li Guangyuan saw that she was really suffering and felt worried.
“Do you want to go to the hospital for a checkup?”
Since it was the school holidays, the infirmary was not open.
Ye Ci forced herself to sit upright. Her left hand was still pressed on her belly.
“No, it’s not necessary… It’ll be fine after a while…”
Li Guangyuan frowned.
Her condition looked quite serious.
Various schools all over the country had sent these students to Capital First High for intensive training, so they had the responsibility to take care of the safety and wellbeing of these students.
‘What if something goes wrong?’
“Don’t be stubborn. I’ll get Sun Qingyi to take you to the hospital now.”
Li Guangyuan went to the door and saw that Ning Li had already walked some distance away, so he shouted, “Ning Li, please come back for a moment!”
Ning Li turned back.
Li Guangyuan pointed to the classroom.
“Ye Ci is not feeling well. Will you accompany her to the hospital?”
He asked Ning Li because she had already handed in her paper. On the other hand, she was a girl and she knew Ye Ci.
They were both from another province and were unfamiliar with the Capital, so it would be much better if Ye Ci had someone to accompany her.
Ning Li smiled, raised her eyebrows slightly, and walked back.
She glanced into the classroom.
Li Guangyuan gave Sun Qingyi a call.
Sun Qingyi was also one of the people in charge of this intensive training camp and he was now at the school.
The other students in the classroom also noticed the situation and looked towards Ye Ci.
Cao Jingxuan turned around and looked worried.
“Ye Ci, does your stomach hurt?”
Ye Ci laid her head on the table and nodded slightly when she heard this.
Li Guangyuan said, “Ning Li, Sun Qingyi will be here soon, so please help Ye Ci to pack up and go downstairs. He will pick you both up.”
Ning Li walked to Ye Ci and glanced at her paper.
Ye Ci wanted to say something but stopped.
Li Guangyuan also realized something. After some thought, he said, “You don’t need to finish the paper. Just hand in what you have. Your health is more important right now.”
Ye Ci still seemed hesitant.
“But…didn’t you say that the results of this test will be included in the final audit assessment?”
“We’ll talk about that later. What matters now is your health.”
Li Guangyuan waved his hand.
“Special circumstances require special attention.”
Only then did Ye Ci reluctantly stand up.
“I’ll turn it in for you.” Ning Li took Ye Ci’s paper, lowered her eyes, and faintly swept a glance.
Although there was no expression on her face, for some reason, Ye Ci still felt a wave of silent mockery.
Ye Ci pursed her lips, feeling the urge to take her paper back from Ning Li. However, it would be weird to do so in front of so many people.
Ning Li turned around and put Ye Ci’s paper on the podium, then brought her bag and phone over.
Ye Ci took over her backpack.
“I’ll take it myself.”
Ning Li let go of her bag.
Ye Ci had not brought much, only a folder, a pencil case, and a water bottle.
Li Guangyuan answered another phone call and rushed them.
“Sun Qingyi’s here, so go straight downstairs. Xijing University First Hospital is not far from here, just a ten-minute drive away. Ning Li, take care of Ye Ci and call me immediately if anything happens.
Ning Li nodded.
The two of them went downstairs and saw Sun Qingyi already waiting in the car.
Ning Li went to the passenger side, and Ye Ci sat alone in the backseat.
Ye Ci’s body was slightly curled up with one hand pressing her belly.
Sun Qingyi looked at her and comforted her. “Don’t worry, we’ll be at Xijing University First Hospital soon.”
Ye Ci nodded gently and was a little out of breath.
“Thank you, Mr. Sun.”
“It’s my job,” Sun Qingyi said, then hesitantly asked. “By the way, do you want to call your family?”
Ye Ci shook her head. “There’s no need for that yet.”
Sun Qingyi was a little hesitant.
Yunzhou was very far from the Capital. Even if they called Ye Ci’s family now, they could not come over immediately.
After all, Ye Ci was sick, so no matter what, they should always inform her family in time.
Ning Li was on her phone and said in a light voice, “It’s better to call. If you feel uncomfortable, I’ll call.”
Sun Qingyi froze for a moment. Only then did he realize that Ning Li and Ye Ci seemed to be from the same family.
He did not know much about the situation in Yunzhou, but everyone had been talking about Ning Li and Ye Ci’s special relationship in the past few days.
Sun Qingyi agreed to Ning Li’s suggestion.
“Right, then you should make the call, Ning Li. Tell them the situation clearly…”
“Sister Ning Li!” Ye Ci suddenly called out to her in an anxious voice.
“H-How about…later…after the checkup? If it isn’t serious, then we don’t have to worry Mom and Dad.”
Ning Li stared at Ye Ci through the rearview mirror for a few seconds before she said, “Okay, later then.”
