Chapter 386: Innocence

Ye Ci called three times, but no one picked up.

“What’s going on?”

She looked at her phone in frustration.

Previously, she had repeatedly instructed her to send Ning Li’s computer over.

However, there was nothing here. What should she do?

Ning Li had not brought her computer with her when she had come to the Capital this time. According to her usual habits, she must have kept it in her bedroom.

Yet, it had not been there?

“She must have hidden it on purpose!”

Ye Ci gritted her teeth and said.

Su Yuan sat at the side without answering Ye Ci’s words. She seemed to be lost in her thoughts.

Ye Ming was not around. He seemed to have gone to deal with matters in Yunzhou.

After the leaked news had broken out, the situation in the Ye family had become very tense.

Within a short period of time, a lot of trouble had occurred within the company.

It was said that even Jinsheng had also been exposed to health problems and was facing a reorganization.

Ye Ming was now almost like an ant on a hot pan.

Ye Ci had changed her phone and SIM card again. She hardly contacted anyone, but she had been reading the news on the Internet.

She knew that it was full of negative news about her and the Ye family. She knew that when she clicked on it, there would be a barrage of curses, but it was as if she could not control herself. The moment she had some free time, she could not help but click on it.

She had even registered for a Weibo account. When she saw the comments that contained extremely unpleasant curses, she replied to them one by one to dispel the resentment and pressure in her heart.

However, the people on the Internet were extremely powerful. They often cursed and scolded, and it eventually became a group of people who came to fight with her.

She could not deal with it alone. In the end, she was filled with grievance and discomfort.

“Mom, Aunt Zhao should still be at home, right? Why isn’t she picking up the phone? Should we call Uncle Zhou?”

Ye Ci asked again, but Su Yuan did not answer.

It was not until she had shouted twice that Su Yuan suddenly came back to her senses.

“What?”

Ye Ci frowned and repeated what she had just said.

“Why don’t we ask Uncle Zhou to look for it again? Besides the bedroom, maybe…”

Before she could finish her sentence, Su Yuan suddenly interrupted her.

“Lil Ci, was it… was it a mistake?”

Ye Ci’s expression changed.

“Mom, what do you mean?”

Su Yuan saw that her expression was unpleasant, so she immediately comforted her.

“Don’t worry, Mom doesn’t suspect you. I just feel that… Although Ning Li has a bad temper, she should not be able to have access to the actual exam questions, right? Think again, could it be that someone else had harmed you?”

In fact, Su Yuan was not intending on excusing Ning Li, but she also felt that Ning Li indeed did not have the ability to do these things.

Thinking back, she had always lived in Lincheng with her grandmother. She could not study properly and would occasionally go out to do odd jobs, making friends with unsavory people.

Even when she had come to the Ye family, her temper had not been restrained at all.

How could she possibly have gotten access to the final exam questions?

If Ye Ci really had been framed, then perhaps it was because of someone that no one expected?

Su Yuan’s original intention had been to let Ye Ci change her train of thought so that they could try to find out about these things as soon as possible. However, to Ye Ci, it was a different story.

She put down the computer in her hand and looked at Su Yuan in disbelief, her eyes slowly turning red.

Then, she suddenly pursed her lips.

“Mother, you still trust Ning Li more, don’t you?”

Su Yuan was stunned.

Tears fell from Ye Ci’s eyes.

She quickly raised her hand to wipe her face, but her voice was choked with sobs.

“It’s true. After all, she is your biological daughter. She is your flesh and blood. What am I?”

Su Yuan hurriedly wiped her tears and half-hugged her.

“What are you talking about, child! Can’t you feel the way your mother treats you? Isn’t your mother anxious, too? You said that now that your father’s company has a lot of trouble that needs to be dealt with and he can’t take care of you, you–”

Ye Ci buried her head in her arms and sobbed silently.

She was really afraid.

Everything had happened too quickly in the past few days. She had not had any time to react.

By the time she had realized that something was wrong, she realized that it was already too late.

It was not just a competition, it was not just a free pass. Her future and reputation had almost been completely destroyed!

Now that she was being detained in the Capital, she felt terrified, nervous, resentful, and crazy, yet there was also a subtle sense of relief.

Compared to staying here, she was more afraid of returning to Yunzhou.

What would the people back in school think of her?

How would the celebrities in Yunzhou mock and talk about her?

How would she continue to stay in Yunzhou in the future?

In the past two days, she had been assaulted. All kinds of information, including her photos, had been rapidly uploaded on the Internet.

Ye Yiming had tried to suppress these, but it was useless.

Many people already knew what she looked like.

She even felt that if she were to walk on the road, she might be recognized by others. They would point and laugh at her.

She could not bear to imagine such a scene!

Su Yuan sighed and patted her back, but she did not know how to comfort her.

Since things had come to this, unless the organizing committee could clarify that the matter of the leak had nothing to do with Ye Ci and the Ye family, the alternative would mean–

Knock knock.

Zhou Fei’s voice came from outside the door.

“Ye Ci, your computer should have arrived today, right? I need to take it away.”

Su Yuan walked over to open the door and saw Ye Ming outside as well.

He walked in first and looked at Ye Ci with an expressionless face.

“Give your computer to Teacher Zhou.”

Ye Ci gritted her teeth and handed the laptop over.

Zhou Fei took it.

Ye Ci clenched her fists.

“Teacher Zhou, I didn’t do anything. I hope the organizing committee can clear my name as soon as possible.”

Zhou Fei glanced at her.

“I hope so too.”
