The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 337 - The Side View in His Memory

Chapter 337: The Side View in His Memory

Yesterday, he had only been concerned about Ye Ci’s results. He had certainly been in no mood to think about anything else.

It was only now that he had noticed that Ning Li had not come back with her mother.

There was a moment of silence at the dining table.

Ye Cheng pursed his lips.

“Father, why do you keep mentioning her?

“Isn’t it good that she’s not here?

Ye Ming glared at Ye Cheng. That caused Ye Cheng to shrink back, without daring to say anything more.

Su Yuan paused.

“She stayed in the Capital for the New Year.”

She said stiffly, in a timid voice.

This was the first Chinese New Year since they had brought Ning Li back from Lincheng to live with the Ye family. In the end, Ning Li had chosen to stay alone in the Capital rather than come back.

If word got out, it would not be pleasant.

Ye Ming frowned slightly.

This matter clearly made him a little unhappy, but he could not lose his temper.

“She’s all alone over there, and she’s unfamiliar with the place. How is she doing over there?”

“I think she has a friend over there as well.”

Su Yuan did not really know much about the situation. Adding to that, she did not want to talk more about Ning Li in front of Ye Ming, so she kept her answer fairly vague. “Besides, this is not the first time she’s done this. Surely, nothing will happen.”

Only then did Ye Ming remember that Ning Li had indeed made a trip to the Capital before.

He nodded.

“That’s good. But it’s the New Year, so it’s not appropriate to stay outside so much. Call her again later.”

“Okay.”

Upon hearing that he did not seem to have any intention of pursuing the matter further and that he had not vented his anger on her, Su Yuan felt relieved.

She picked up some food for Ye Ci.

“Lil Ci, did you have a good rest last night?”

Ye Ci seemed to be lost in thought as if thinking intently about something.

Su Yuan called out to her twice before she came back to her senses.

“Huh? Oh, it was pretty good. Thank you, Mom.”

Ye Ci forced a smile.

Su Yuan saw that there was a faint greenish tinge beneath her eyes and her eyes seemed to be a little bloodshot. She knew that she must not have slept well.

The final grade had indeed been… It was not unusual for her to feel uncomfortable.

Moreover, the father and daughter had talked for a long time in the study yesterday. She still did not know what Ye Ming had told his daughter.

“Lil Ci, if you are not feeling well, you should rest well at home for the next few days.”

During the Chinese New Year, the Ye family was usually extremely busy.

People came and went, and Ye Ci could not avoid being asked about her grades.

Ye Ci nodded silently.

Ye Ming glanced at her without saying anything.

As soon as Lu Huaiyu returned to the Lu family, he found Old Master Lu pacing back and forth in the courtyard.

It was obvious that he was waiting for him.

“You’re back?”

Old Master Lu’s voice trailed off, as his eyes fell on Lu Huaiyu. He looked as if he wanted to say something more but hesitated.

Lu Huaiyu nodded.

“So, the Xu family has left?”

“They left a long time ago.”

When Old Master Lu thought of it, he could not help but snort.

“You knew that they were coming, so you deliberately went out and waited for them to leave before coming back, didn’t you?”

“It was more important to send Ah Li off,” Lu Huaiyu said and laughed. “Since I didn’t want to see them anyway, it was just a coincidental fringe benefit.”

He had always been arrogant and difficult to please. It did not matter even if it was the Xu family, if he did not want to give them face, he would not give them face.

Old Master Lu choked for a moment, but he could not do anything about it.

“You brat, you sure have a lot of free time, leaving me here to deal with the trouble!”

Lu Huaihe raised his eyebrows.

“I thought you would be quite happy to do it.”

Old Master Lu’s thoughts were exposed, and his slight embarrassment showed on his face.

“If it weren’t for Ah Li, do you think I would be willing to help you clean up this mess!?”

As he spoke, he glanced at Lu Huaiyu again.

“However, that hand-drawing…”

Lu Huaiyu said, “You won’t be able to see it today. It’s at the Rongyue Residence.”

“Who said I wanted to see it?

Old Master Lu immediately retorted.

“I… I was just asking casually! Didn’t you say that the picture was of Ah Li? So many people misidentified her, yet you don’t even want to think about it!”

Lu Huaiyu lowered his eyes slightly, and there seemed to be a surge of emotions in the depths of his deep phoenix eyes.

After a moment, he laughed.

“At that time, she was very young, with short hair. She was very thin, so, understandably, people misunderstood.

Old Master Lu had never seen that hand drawing before, so he did not understand the situation. However, he had seen Ah Li before and he could see that the child was beautiful. Even if she had short hair, surely she would not have been mistaken for a boy, right?

As if seeing through his thoughts, Lu Huaiyu explained with a smile, “That hand drawing only showed her profile. It doesn’t depict her full appearance.”

Old Master Lu understood.

“I see… But you’ve been thinking about her for so long. I thought it was her entire appearance, but actually… it was only her profile?”

Lu Huaiyu’s brows twitched slightly, but he did not say anything.

After a long while, his thin lips curved into an extremely faint smile.

He had only remembered her profile, so of course, that was all he had been able to produce.

Old Master Lu looked at him. He seemed to have thought of something, and the expression on his face faded.

After a long while, he sighed.

“It’s fine. It’s definitely her then.”

Lu Huaiyu returned to his bedroom.

He went to the bookshelf and took the book down.

This book was old and clearly had been flipped through many times. However, it was clear that its owner had treasured it very much.

“The Physical Universe”

This was an entry-level book on astrophysics.

He recalled the books that Ning Li had borrowed, as well as how Jiang Ran had said that she was the one who had sent Ning Li to Taihe…

His fingers tapped lightly on the book. After a long time, he finally took his phone out and made a call.

The other party quickly picked up.

“Huaiyu?”
