Chapter 379 - Hopes That You Will Cooperate With the Investigation
It was not him who was allowing it.
Of course, there were other people who had gotten used to it.
Ning Li was stunned for a moment. Looking at Lu Huaiyu and his tall and handsome figure, she did not know how to reply.
Suddenly, her phone screen lit up.
The call was from Zhou Fei.
Ning Li picked up the call and tried her best to suppress her rapidly beating heart.
“Hello? Teacher Zhou?”
“Ning Li, where are you now?”
Ning Li Glanced at Lu Huaiyu.
“I… I’m with Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu looked at her with interest.
Zhou Fei heaved a sigh of relief.
“That’s good. I won’t be able to accompany you and Pei Song back to Yunzhou tomorrow. I’ll have Lu Huaiyu send you off then.”
He was using Lu Huaiyu to his advantage by leaving Ning Li in Lu Huaiyu’s hands.
Ning Li choked for a moment, but she quickly guessed that he was probably busy running around because of the leak.
Originally, after Ye Ci’s punishment for cheating had been announced, they should have gone back then.
No matter how embarrassing it was for her, no matter how much of a black mark this matter had smeared Yunzhou Second High School, the moment the results of the treatment were out, the matter would have been settled.
Now, however, once the matter of the leak had come out, the situation was much more troublesome than before.
It was very likely that Ye Ci had been detained. As the lead teacher, Zhou Fei naturally had to stay behind to cooperate with the investigation.
Ning Li did not ask too many questions and replied, “Yes.”
Zhou Fei, on the other hand, fell silent. He wanted to say something but hesitated.
He seemed to be considering how to speak.
Ning Li’s tone was calm.
“Teacher Zhou, if you have anything you want to ask, just say it.”
Hearing her say this, Zhou Fei took a deep breath and finally said, “It’s like this. You’ve seen the news about the leaked exam questions, right?”
“Yes, I saw it in the afternoon.”
“Then… do you know anything about this?”
Zhou Fei’s voice sounded helpless,
“Don’t misunderstand. I’m not doubting you. I just wanted to ask if you knew where Ye Ci had gotten the original exam questions from.”
He had only just found out about this matter.
After Ye Ci had been caught cheating, he and several leaders of the inspection team had gone to the office and seen the cheat sheet that Ye Ci had been caught with and the surveillance video of the whole process.
However, at that time, he had not known that what was on it were the actual questions on the exam paper!
It was not until this evidence had been presented to determine Ye Ci’s punishment that this point was discovered.
The organizing committee of the physics competition took this matter seriously and immediately ordered an investigation.
In the end, because of this matter, it had become a big issue on the Internet for the past two days. Everyone’s emotions were already at a sensitive point. Now that it had been leaked, naturally it would explode.
Ning Li said lightly, “Regarding this, I don’t know.”
“She doesn’t know!? How could she not know!?”
In the hotel room, Ye Ci’s emotions had completely collapsed.
“She was the one that secretly put that cheat sheet in my clothes! She deliberately shortened the original question from the exam paper in order to completely kill me! Who else could it have been but her!?”
Zhou Fei, who was sitting opposite her, quietly observed her without any expression on his face.
After Ye Ci had finished shouting, he said, “Ye Ci, you’ve always said that she framed you with that note, but until now, you haven’t been able to produce any evidence, have you?”
Ye Ci’s chest hurt. She had never felt so aggrieved!
Of course, she had no evidence!
If she had the evidence, why would she have just watched things develop to this point?
However, Ning Li had harmed her to this point. How could she just let it go?
“In addition, according to the organizing committee, all of your personal items in the Capital, except for your personal clothes, must be submitted for inspection.”
“That includes your cell phone, luggage, books, and so on.”
Zhou Fei paused.
“In addition, your personal computer must be sent from Yunzhou as soon as possible.”
Ye Ci clenched her teeth.
This situation was something Ye Ci had already considered when the authorities had said that there would be a thorough investigation about the leak.
“I told you, I didn’t do anything!”
“Whether you did it or not, that will become clear after the investigation.”
After two days, Zhou Fei’s patience had run out.
“Ye Ci, please be clear. This is to inform you that you are to cooperate with the investigation, not ask for your opinion.
“If you really have done nothing, the inspection team will not malign you and they return your status to a clean slate as soon as possible. This way, you can return to Yunzhou as soon as possible and return to a normal life, understand?”
Ye Ci almost sneered outwardly.
Return to a normal life…
Even if nothing was found out, she would never be the same as before!
What Zhou Fei had not said was that once it was confirmed that Ye Ci had really been involved in the leak, there would be untold troubles waiting for her and the Ye family!
In fact, he was almost certain of this matter in his heart.
After all, the cheat sheet had fallen out of Ye Ci’s clothes.
The original test paper had indeed been printed on it.
If someone had not revealed it, where else had she found it?
Moreover, she had a very strong her motive.
In the entire Winter Camp, her results had been the worst.
Whether it was for Ye Ci herself or for the Ye family, a decent competition result sheet was very important.
Besides, how could Ye Ci, a student, have so much power when it came to the questions?
However, she had the Ye family behind her.
“The inspection team has started to investigate the teachers who had given out the papers today. Other than them, all the people who handled this paper are also involved.”
Zhou Fei said, “I hope you can adjust your emotions as soon as possible and cooperate with the investigation.”
