Chapter 387 - Semi-Ban
After Zhou Fei had left, Su Yuan looked at Ye Ming worriedly.
“Hubby, what’s the situation like at the company?”
It would have been fine if she had not brought this up, because the moment she had mentioned it, Ye Ming’s face darkened.
“You wouldn’t understand even if I told you, so don’t concern yourself about it.”
Several ongoing collaborations had all been put on hold, and Jinsheng was also facing problems.
Those people had listened to the rain and already decided it was raining. They had already done so even before the conclusion was reached. If this matter was confirmed…
He looked at Ye Ci.
Ye Ci seemed to have sensed something and clenched her teeth as she gently shook her head.
“Dad, I really didn’t do anything.”
All traces had been wiped clean by her. They would not be able to find anything.
As long as there was no evidence, then there would be no suspicion, and there would still be some room for change.
Hearing her words, Ye Ming’s worried heart calmed down a little.
Suddenly, Su Yuan’s phone screen lit up.
She took a look and found that it was a call from the Yunzhou police station.
A sense of unease surged in her heart.
She picked up the call.
No one else knew what the other party had said, but her expression instantly changed.
Due to her shock, the tone of her voice became a little shrill.
Ye Ming and Ye Ci immediately looked over.
Su Yuan was still saying something to the other party.
“Okay, I got it. I’ll go back as soon as possible.”
As she said that, she ended the phone call.
Ye Ming frowned and said, “What’s wrong?”
Su Yuan’s expression was very unpleasant.
“Aunt Zhao was caught stealing Ning Li’s things.”
As soon as she said that, an eerie silence descended upon the room.
“What did you say?!”
Ye Ming simply suspected that he had heard wrongly.
“How could she steal from Ning Li? Besides, what could Ning Li have that she would steal from her?”
Aunt Zhao had worked for the Ye family for many years, and she had always been treated well. This had never happened before.
How had this suddenly happened?
“I’m not too sure. The police said that it wasn’t her who had actually stolen it. It was her daughter who had broken into Ning Li’s room and taken a diamond-encrusted bracelet from her. It should be the one that you gave her previously.”
After Ning Li had arrived at the Ye residence, she had barely taken anything from the Ye residence.
She even wore her old clothes all the time. Several times, Su Yuan had offered to buy new ones, but she had never accepted them.
Thinking about it carefully, the only time Ye Ming had brought gifts for them had been after he had won the Qinghe Bridge project.
Who would have thought that such a thing would happen now?
“The bracelet cost more than 30,000 yuan. Since it was taken by a child, it’s not that serious, but it’s quite troublesome to deal with. Most importantly, I’m afraid that there’s no one to take care of Lil Cheng at the moment. Thus, I have to go back.”
At the mention of Ye Cheng, Ye Ming began to worry.
Even if Aunt Zhao had not been the one who had done it, her daughter was the one who had stolen the bracelet. She definitely could not stay in the Ye family to take care of Ye Cheng for the time being.
“Then, you should go back first.”
Ye Ming was very frustrated.
Actually, in Yunzhou, this wasn’t the only troublesome matter.
There were many problems that he urgently needed to go back and solve.
However, the most important matter at the moment was still the matter of the leak. He still had to stay in the Capital and keep an eye on the situation at all times. He would then think of a way to deal with it and see if he could solve this problem as soon as possible.
He could not go back to Yunzhou for the time being.
Su Yuan was also very anxious and hurriedly packed her things.
At eight o’clock in the evening, Ning Li finished making a statement at the police station.
Aunt Zhao was still at the police station.
At first, she had refused to admit that she was the one who had taken the item, so Ning Li had called the police.
Perhaps it was because the Ye family was involved, the police had taken the matter very seriously and were very efficient.
In the end, Aunt Zhao had found the bracelet in her little daughter’s schoolbag.
The child had not realized how serious the matter was, but Aunt Zhao’s face had turned pale on the spot.
After such a thing happening, it would be difficult for her to stay in the Ye family in the future, regardless of whether she had been the one who had done it or not.
Even the top-ranked wealthy families in Yunzhou would not accept her anymore.
Ye Cheng was not there either. He had been taken away by Ye Yiming in the afternoon.
The huge Ye family home was empty.
Ning Li was too lazy to go back there, so she went to the residential area where she had rented a place instead.
At this time, many people were walking around in the residential area.
The lights in the building were on.
She went back to her three-bedroom apartment.
Her computer was on the table in the master bedroom.
Of course, she would not leave these things at the Ye residence.
After washing up, she turned on the computer and brought up the results of the data that had been obtained from the Fino lab.
Her slender white fingers quickly tapped on the keyboard.
As she was in the middle of her work, her phone lit up a few times.
All of the calls were from Su Yuan.
She only replied that her room had been turned upside down so she was staying outside today. After that, she did not bother with it anymore.
Su Yuan stopped calling after that.
She was busy until 11:30 in the night, so Ning Li simply washed up and went to bed.
The next day, Ning Li returned to class at Yunzhou Second High School as usual.
As soon as she stepped into the classroom, several gazes fell upon her.
Most of them had complicated expressions on their faces.
On one hand, Ning Li had obtained first place in the overall national score in the physics competition, which made people feel envious.
On the other hand, Ye Ci and the Ye family were still deeply involved in the matter of the exam leak. No matter what, Ning Li was still partly a member of the Ye family, so no one really knew what to say at the moment.
Ning Li did not seem to be affected and went back to her seat.
He Xiaochen’s eyes lit up when she saw her.
“Ning Li! You’re finally back! Sob, sob, sob!”
Only God knew that she had only been able to rely on a few photos of Ning Li that she had collected from all over the place to admire. It was really tough!
However, those photos could not capture the beauty’s charm at all!
The real person was still the best!
“Ning Li, have you heard? Xu Yini seems to have offended someone and was half-banned!”
