Chapter 394 - Suspension
After Ye Ming had returned, he immediately rushed to the company.
In less than ten days, a series of troubles had come, one after another. The situation in Yunzhou was a mess.
Ye Ci went into her bedroom and did not come out.
At first, Su Yuan was still a little worried. She had knocked on the door twice, intending on going in to take a look.
However, Ye Ci had not opened the door. All she said was that she was tired and wanted to rest.
Su Yuan thought about how she had just been punished and how she had been severely abused by the Internet. This trip to the Capital had indeed damaged her body and spirit, so she did not ask any more questions and had left her alone.
After the evening self-study session, when Ning Li returned to the Ye family, it was already close to ten o’clock.
She had just arrived at the door when she heard Ye Ming and Su Yuan talking in the living room.
“So, the leak didn’t involve you?”
Su Yuan’s voice came from inside. She was obviously relieved.
“That’s good, that’s good…”
Ning Li stopped in her tracks.
Ye Ming’s tone was still low and cold.
“Don’t be so happy. This time, it was only because they could not find any conclusive evidence. Someone else has been sent to investigate it now. It wasn’t easy to get this result. However, Ye Ci’s side has been thoroughly investigated. No matter what, her name could not be cleared. The Ye family will still be implicated.”
Su Yuan let out an “Ah”.
However, she also understood that this was already the best result that they could obtain at the moment.
After a long while, she said.
“No matter what, you’re finally clear. That’s a good thing, at least.”
Ye Ming seemed to sneer.
That was easy to say.
“Ye Ci is my daughter. Do you really think that she has no influence at all?”
He had been in the business world for decades and could be considered an extremely shrewd and cunning person.
Therefore, from the beginning to the end, he had been very careful about any matters related to Qin Guang, which was why he had not left any fatal evidence.
However, it was impossible to say that there were no traces at all.
It was just that it was not enough to drag him down.
He had spent a lot of effort to erase this tiny trace and had barely managed to escape.
However, the conclusion on Ye Ci’s end was confirmed. There really was no other way.
Moreover, anyone with a bit of brains could guess that he had definitely been involved in this.
Su Yuan was worried.
“What else can we do now? Jinsheng was given a month to make some amendments, and several collaborative projects were turned down by others for various reasons. This…”
She usually did not interfere in the matters of Ye Ming’s company, but she still had a certain understanding of it.
Moreover, this information could not be hidden at all. All she needed to do was ask around and find out.
The impact of the leak incident was far more serious than she had expected.
Ye Ming was silent for a moment before he said, “So be it. Fortunately, those few projects are not too big. In addition, I have personally gone to ask today. Jinsheng’s problem is not considered serious. It can be reopened when it expires. Most importantly, the Qinghe Bridge project is not affected.”
Qinghe Bridge was currently the largest project of Ye Ming’s company. Since it was led by the Yunzhou city government, it had a strong background.
It was precisely because of this that the Ye family could continue to move forward steadily despite suffering such a huge storm.
As long as they had this in hand, the Ye family’s foundation would still be stable.
Hearing his words, Su Yuan’s anxiety and worry finally eased.
“Yes, yes. There’s still Qinghe Bridge.”
The storm of public opinion would eventually pass.
The most important thing was to ensure the fundamental interests.
As long as everything went smoothly at Qinghe Bridge, the Ye family did not have to worry too much.
“Where’s Lil Cheng?”
Ye Ming pinched the bridge of his nose as he asked her tiredly.
“Previously, you said that he had been suspended. What happened exactly?”
Su Yuan briefly explained the matter to him.
“… and that’s about it. Actually, I think it’s not necessarily a bad idea to let Lil Cheng rest at home for a few days. The situation at school is rather complicated right now. After a few days, I’ll send him back. It should be better.”
Su Yuan was being tactful, but Ye Ming knew what she meant.
The news of Ye Ci cheating and leaking the questions had spread all over the Internet. How could the parents of the students not know about it?
It was hard to guarantee that no one would say anything in front of their own children.
It was only because of this that the children had followed suit and started arguing. They had even started fighting with Ye Cheng at school.
When the incident had calmed down a little, the situation might improve.
Ye Ming frowned. He was very unhappy.
However, after thinking about it carefully, he knew that what Su Yuan said was not without reason.
At the moment, this was indeed the most appropriate way to deal with the situation.
“Then, that’s it for now. Also, you should teach him better in the future. Don’t cause trouble so rashly.”
There were already enough things to do at home.
Su Yuan replied, “I know that. Don’t worry.”
Ye Ming looked at the second floor, his expression slightly focused, as if he was thinking about something.
After a long while, he said, “Oh right, please go to school tomorrow and help Lil Ci take a leave of absence.”
“A leave of absence?”
Su Yuan’s voice raised by an octave. She quickly realized that she had lost her composure and quickly lowered her voice.
“Why is she taking a leave of absence? She’s going to take the college entrance exam in three months!”
Ye Ming leaned against the sofa, his entire person was very tired.
“She’s just taking a leave of absence, not quitting school. I pleaded with Second High to keep her academic status. With her current state, how can she go back to school? Let her rest at home for a few days, and then we’ll find her a–”
Before he could finish, the door to the bedroom on the second floor suddenly opened.
Ye Ci stood behind the handrail of the stairs, her face full of disbelief.
“Dad, what did you say!? You want me to quit school!?”
