Cheating and leaking questions were two completely different things.
About the former, most people would just gossip about it, join in the fun, and discuss a few things.
However, the matter of leaking questions was not the same.
This matter was extremely bad and involved a great deal.
If not, the organizing committee of the competition would not have issued such a serious statement.
Compared to the previous statement about bringing cheat sheets into the examination room to cheat, the matter of leaking the questions was truly stepping on the red line of fairness in the competition and the examination!
Therefore, once this news broke out, it quickly became the top trending topic and attracted the attention of the whole nation!
The Lu family.
Ning Li looked at her phone indifferently.
On Weibo, the top trending list and the front page, everyone was discussing the matter of the questions being leaked.
Ye Ci was only a senior high school student. How could she have gotten hold of the actual questions for the National Physics Competition Exam?
Obviously, there had been other people helping with the operation.
As for who this person was…
Her father, Ye Ming, of course, was the most probable person.
After all, the Ye family was considered one of the top wealthiest families in Yunzhou, and Ye Ming had been in the business world for decades. He had no lack of means and connections.
If it had not been him, then who else could it have been?
Although there was no evidence yet, such an extremely private matter involved huge benefits. Other than Ye Ming who had the closest relationship with Ye Ci, there was no one else who came to mind.
Within a short period of time, #Ye Ming#, #Yunzhou’s Ye family# were also trending one after another.
Having started from Ye Ci, now even the Ye family had been dragged out from behind her.
A large amount of information about Ye Ci and the Ye family appeared, and even Ye Ming’s life history had been scrutinized intensely within a short period of time.
Looking at the rapidly increasing search volume, reading volume, and discussion rate, Ning Li raised her eyebrows slightly.
It was such a pity that she could not see the Ye family’s reaction at this moment with her own eyes.
Ye Ci had given her a “small surprise” and in return, she had given her a “gift package”, the kind with many gifts.
She did not know whether they liked it or not.
There was a knock on the door.
It was Lu Huaiyu’s voice.
Ning Li put away her phone and got up to open the door.
Lu Huaiyu leaned against the door frame:
“It’s time to eat.”
Ning Li thought for a moment and suddenly raised her hand to pull on his sleeve.
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrows slightly,
Ning Li pulled him gently and looked behind him.
Lu Huaiyu leaned forward and smiled.
“Grandpa and the others are in the living room. They won’t be able to hear you. Just tell me.”
Ning Li shook her phone and asked softly, “Second Brother, did you do this?”
Even though her question was vague, but Lu Huaiyu knew what she was asking.
The summary of the results had been something that she had prepared long ago.
The investigation statement of the organizing committee of the competition had also been within her expectations.
Previously, there had been a lot of arguments on the internet. She had not made a sound because she had been waiting for such an opportunity.
This series of solid attacks was enough to make Ye Ci and the entire Ye family extremely anxious.
However, the progress of all of this had been much smoother than she had expected, and the storm that had been stirred up had gotten even greater.
This included the series of revelations that were related to the Ye family. Whether it was true or not, it was overwhelming and did not give the Ye family any chance to catch their breath.
Beneath the huge heat, it was as if there was an invisible hand that was forcefully and resolutely attempting to pull the entire Ye family down.
And this person…
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“What did I do? I merely helped them complete their KPI for this year ahead of time. Their vice president just called and said that he wanted to treat me to a meal.”
Ning Li, “…”
Lu Huaiyu rubbed her head.
“This matter was already a hot topic. I was just taking advantage of the situation.”
If he had not made a move, this matter would not have developed so quickly. After all, public opinion needed time to ferment.
Now, with just a gentle push, he had easily taken away the Ye family’s last bit of leeway.
It had neither been a big nor small effort.
To him, it was a piece of cake.
If he had not guessed that Ning Li had other plans, he would not have waited until now.
Seeing his little girl being criticized for an entire day and night, he had already held on to his patience for long enough.
Ning Li finally let go of his hand. It looked like tiny lights were flickering in her beautiful and clear peach blossom eyes as she looked at him.
“Thank you, Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu’s eyelids drooped slightly, the sleeves of his shirt having been slightly wrinkled by the young girl’s slender and fair fingers.
His thin, scarlet lips curved.
“Is that all?”
Ning Li was stunned.
Didn’t… didn’t he just say that he barely did anything?
In the blink of an eye, why was he asking for favors?
However, he had helped, especially regarding blocking her personal information and dealing with the Ye family…
“Then, how do you want me to thank you, Second Brother?”
Ning Li asked with uncertainty.
She owed Lu Huaiyu many favors, but he rarely mentioned it.
It wasn’t that she did not want to pay him back, but she really had not had the chance yet.
Lu Huaiyu had been born into an aristocratic family, and he was outstanding in all aspects.
There was nothing that he lacked.
So, what could she do to help him?
Lu Huaiyu looked at her.
Due to the difference in height, she raised her small face and slightly widened her eyes. Her crimson red lips were slightly parted.
She was caught off guard, soft and sweet.
It seemed that this question really troubled her.
Lu Huaiyu’s eyes darkened before he then smiled.
“I can’t think of anything at the moment. You can just owe it to me first.”
Ning Li blinked, only able to nod in response.
Lu Huaiyu raised his brows slightly, and the smile at the corners of his eyes deepened.
The young girl had agreed so quickly. It was like she really had no fear of being abducted.
The Lu family’s dinner tonight was exceptionally sumptuous.
It was rare for Old Master Lu to bring out the rare wine that he had been saving for a long time.
“This is to celebrate our Ah Li getting first place in the national competition! Ah Li, Grandpa has been keeping this wine hidden for a long time. You won’t be able to get this from anyone else! Do you want to give it a try?”
“She’s not allowed to.”
