Chapter 391 - She Did Not Care
The hotel room was dead silent.
Ye Ci sat on the sofa, looking at the promotional news that was about to blow up her phone. Her face was pale and her whole body was trembling slightly.
She thought that after the events of the past few days, her endurance had improved a lot.
However, it was only now that she realized that when a huge blow came, she was still vulnerable.
She knew every word on the notice but seeing it all put together like this, she was completely dumbfounded.
The door was suddenly pushed open from the outside.
Ye Ming’s face looked like a storm cloud.
Ye Ci shrank back, subconsciously trying to hide.
However, Ye Ming seemed to be extremely angry. Instead of exploding immediately, his voice was frighteningly cold.
“Didn’t you say that everything had been deleted?”
Ye Ci subconsciously shook her head.
“I, I don’t know… There was clearly nothing left on it!”
She was so frightened that she could not even cry.
Her chest felt as if it had been stifled, and she could hardly breathe. She felt dizzy, feeling chilled to the bone.
She subconsciously crossed her arms.
“I really didn’t… I really didn’t!”
Clearly, she knew how big the implications of this matter were, so why would she be so careless?
After receiving the email, she had memorized the test paper in the attachment and quickly destroyed it.
After that, she also wiped away all relevant information.
She had repeatedly confirmed that the contents of the document had been destroyed and could not be restored.
How could they still have been discovered!?
If she had known that this would happen, why would she still have handed over the computer!?
Ye Ming stared at her. After a long while, he took a deep breath.
At this point, it was useless to lose his temper now.
His phone lit up. It was a call from Zhou Fei.
Ye Ming adjusted his breathing before picking up.
He tapped on the public speaker.
Zhou Fei’s voice came from the other end.
“Mr. Ye, have you seen the report of the Organizing Committee’s investigation results?”
“It’s like this. The organizing committee invited experts from the Ministry of Public Security to recover the data on Ye Ci’s and Qin Guang’s computers and confirm the leak. In addition, they may need you to come over and cooperate with the rest of the investigation.”
Once the announcement was made, the amount of discussion on the Internet was astonishing.
Over at Yunzhou Second High School, the atmosphere had become restless and chaotic for the whole afternoon.
No one was in the mood to study, since all their attention was focused on this matter.
There were also quite a number of people who came to First Class. They stood in the corridor to try and peer into the classroom.
Since Ye Ci had not returned yet, they were looking at Ning Li.
After all, this matter involved the Ye family, so it was inevitable that she would be mentioned.
However, Ning Li did not care about this at all. She continued to read quietly in her seat.
“Hey, do you guys think the Ye family will be in trouble this time?”
“This matter is such a big deal. How can it be fine?”
“That’s hard to say. I heard that the Ye family has quite a wide network… Besides, look at how calm Ning Li is. Does it look like something bad will happen to the Ye family?”
“Don’t joke around. She has never had a good relationship with the Ye family. I guess she doesn’t care at all.”
“But, isn’t she still under her mother’s custody?”
“Who knows…? Anyway, with her grades, she won’t have to worry about the future.”
Faint voices came from the corridor, making all kinds of comments.
When Pei Song came out of the office, he saw many people from the other classes standing in the corridor outside First Class.
Boys and girls alike had gathered there, but all of them were looking at the same person.
Curiosity, surprise, inquisitiveness, gossip…
All their expressions were different.
The clear and cold voice of a young man rang out in the corridor. It was neither light nor heavy, but somehow carried an indescribable aura.
Everyone fell silent and turned around in shock. When they saw that it was Pei Song, they tactfully stepped aside.
A few of the girls blushed.
The boys, on the other hand, felt that Pei Song’s aura was a little dangerous and instinctively stepped back.
The noisy corridor fell into a strange silence.
Pei Song walked into the classroom and went up to the podium.
He was holding a stack of papers in his hand.
“Chemistry quiz. The papers will be collected in one hour.”
A few mournful howls came from the classroom.
However, this was not the first time. Despite everyone’s mournful sighs, they quickly packed up their things and prepared for the exam.
Pei Song began to hand out the papers.
One by one, the papers were passed out all the way to the back row.
The classroom quieted down. Only the rustling of a pen across a piece of paper could be heard clearly.
The group of people in the corridor was a little confused.
“No, why is First Class so fierce? They said it was just a small test, but is it really a small test?”
“That seems to be a test that has been specially prepared for them, right? I heard that they started doing this at the end of last semester. They only studied for the exam at night.”
“They don’t even have an invigilator?”
“Tsk, is there a need for an invigilator in First Class?”
Pei Song looked outside, his eyes cold and indifferent behind his glasses.
Then, he walked over and closed the front door of the classroom. He looked at the people who were sitting by the window and said in a flat voice, “Kang Xiaoyu, Liu Yu, Shang Meng, close the window.”
He was the class monitor, so of course, his words could be put to good use.
Those few students immediately cooperated and closed the window.
The sound outside was cut off.
Everyone realized that they were being chased away.
The people in the corridor looked at each other awkwardly.
Pei Song raised his eyes and looked over at them quietly.
The gathering of people there could not take it anymore and started to drag each other away.
The area was finally clear.
Pei Song withdrew his gaze and walked towards his seat.
He pulled out his chair and glanced to the side.
Ning Li was answering a question with her head lowered. A few strands of her hair were hanging down, swaying gently against the side of her snow-white face.
He pulled out his chair and spread out the paper with a calm expression.
