Chapter 347 - Can’t Be Helped

Chapter 347: Can’t Be Helped

Ning Li looked at Ye Ci.

Ye Ci lowered her head and pursed her lips tightly.

“I did prepare two notebooks,” Ning Li replied.

Hearing her say this, Ye Ming was slightly relieved.

He probed further.

“The situation is like this. With Lil Ci’s current level, I’m afraid it will be a little difficult for her to participate in the final of the physics competition. “So, Uncle was wondering if he could ask you to help coach Lil Ci? “Of course, Uncle knows that you’re also preparing for the exam right now, so time is very tight. So, do you think you could lend the second notebook to Lil Ci?”

“This won’t take up too much of your time and energy. Lil Ci will also be able to raise her standard and make a final sprint–”

Ning Li listened patiently, but when she heard these words, she finally could not help but smile.

However, it was a very light and shallow smile, one that did not extend to the corners of her eyes.

Her peach blossom eyes were clear and bright, but with a bit of a threatening coldness in them.

“What position is Uncle Ye in now, to ask me for this favor?”

Ye Ming was stunned.

He was a very shrewd person, so of course, he could hear the rejection in Ning Li’s words.

He frowned.

“Ning Li, Uncle knows that Lil Ci did something that made you unhappy. However, at that time, she was suspected of cheating by a few teachers, so she couldn’t defend herself. I can only tell you honestly that she didn’t mean to implicate you.”

“She knows now that she was wrong, and she feels very guilty towards you. Uncle can understand if you don’t want to lend her that notebook again. However, these final exams are really important. Could you help your sister out for the sake of our family?”

Actually, Ye Ming was very unwilling to discuss this with Ning Li.

After all, Ning Li really had no ties to him.

Accepting Ning Li into the Ye family had already been his biggest concession.

These words should have been said by Su Yuan.

However, he did not want Su Yuan to know the true situation at the winter camp.

The fewer people who knew about this matter, the better.

Moreover, during this period of time, he had been observing coolly from the sidelines. He knew that the relationship between Su Yuan and Ning Li was not good.

No matter what Su Yuan said or did, Ning Li did not seem to care and always did things her own way anyway.

When he thought about that, he felt that it would be better if he just did it himself.

When Ning Li heard this, she felt like laughing.

Of course, this competition was very important because it involved the reputation of Ye Ci and the entire Ye family.

They had held such a grand celebratory banquet previously. Everyone in the upper circle of Yunzhou knew that this daughter of the Ye family was very outstanding.

In fact, the more this kind of aristocratic family paid attention to their family status, the more they cared about the cultivation of their children.

The more outstanding the children were, the more respect they would have.

If Ye Ci were to participate in the finals at her current level, who knew how many people’s eyes would pop out in shock when the results came out.

The number of people waiting to laugh at them would be even more numerous.

Ye Ming was someone who cared a lot about his own reputation. How could he accept such a thing happening?

After all, Ye Ci had always been outstanding in the past. Whether it was her results, her paintings, or anything else, she had always been considered as one of the best among the daughters of Yun Zhou’s socialites.

Ye Ci could not bear the huge difference in the comparison between her then and now, and neither could Ye Ming.

Thus, that was why he was willing to compromise and negotiate with Ning Li so nicely.

However, the point was that… it had not crossed his mind that Ning Li actually had no reason to help Ye Ci.

A family…

It was really difficult for him to say those words out loud.

Ning Li said lightly, “Uncle Ye, I’m sorry. I can’t help you with this.”

She gave him a straightforward rejection.

Ye Ming’s brows were tightly knitted.

“Ning Li. I know you’re angry with Lil Ci and that you don’t want to help her. Uncle understands. Any request that you have, Uncle will try his best to fulfill it. All you need to do is lend that notebook to Lil Ci. Moreover, I heard from Lil Ci that you prepared that notebook for her, right? Look, this–”

“It’s not that I don’t want to help, but I can’t.”

Ning Li interrupted Ye Ming, as the corners of her lips curled up slightly.

“It’s because I’ve already thrown the notebook away.”

“What!?”

This time, not only Ye Ming, but Ye Ci also looked over in shock.

“You, you threw it away!? How could you throw it away!?”

Ye Ci’s eyes widened. Due to her shock, her voice had become a little shrill.

Ning Li turned her head to look at her.

“That book was originally mine. Why can’t I throw it away?”

Her eyes were so cold that for some reason, Ye Ci felt a little uneasy and afraid.

Her lips twitched.

“I, I didn’t mean that… After all, Sister Ning Li, you worked hard to write that notebook. It’s such a pity to throw it away…”

“That’s okay.”

Ning Li tilted her head, her tone casual.

“It’s better than being mistaken for cheating again and being called to the office for questioning, right?”

She smiled.

“After all, I don’t think I’ll be able to produce a third notebook to prove my innocence.”

Ye Ci’s face turned pale.

It was clear that Ning Li was deliberately being sarcastic!

However, this matter had indeed been caused by her. Moreover, while they had been in the office, she had indeed said something similar to testify against Ning Li.

Now that Ning Li was not willing to help, she could not say anything more.

If she said too much, she would only embarrass herself even more.

However, Ye Ming had not given up yet.

“Well, where did you throw that thing then?”

If they could still find it in time, there should still be some hope.

Ning Li lowered her head and thought for a while.

“I can’t remember clearly. I threw it away a long time ago. By my estimation, I should think it would have been sent to the garbage disposal station by now, right?”

Her eyes curved as she smiled.

“I’m not sure which one it would be. After all, as you know, the Capital is quite big.”
