Chapter 395 - Famous Painting
Ye Ming frowned.
“What else? Can you still go back to Second High?”
Ye Ci was instantly speechless.
She thought of the accusations and insults on the Internet.
Every word was extremely unpleasant.
How much better could Second High be?
She muttered in a daze.
At this point, she did not know what to do.
“Other than taking a break from school, do you have a better choice? Do you know how much effort I put in to keep your academic status?”
Ye Ming was also suppressing his anger.
He had been begging people everywhere recently and now he owed God knows how many favors!
The Ye family had been developing very well all these years. He had long been used to being high and mighty, but now he had to humbly ask for help. He still had a bellyful of anger that he had nowhere to vent!
Ye Ci bit her lip hard.
Su Yuan tried to smooth things over.
“Lil Ci, your father is doing this for your own good. Look at all the things that have happened recently. You haven’t even had a good sleep. It’s a good time to take advantage of this time to recuperate.”
Ye Ci’s hand gripped the railing tightly. Her knuckles had gone red and white.
After a while, she asked, “Then… then how long do I have to stay out of school?”
Ye Ming pressed the space between his eyebrows.
“I’m not sure yet. I’ll find someone to contact the agent later. You’ll need to prepare to study abroad.”
When she said this, Su Yuan and Ye Ci were both shocked.
Ye Ci’s first reaction was to refuse.
“Dad, I don’t want to go abroad!”
Her ideal school was Xijing University. All these years, she had been working hard and striving for this goal.
Even if she could not go to Xijing University, she could still go to the top three universities in the country.
In any case, she had never thought of going abroad to study at a university.
“Do you think this is a question of whether you want to or not?”
Ye Ming seemed to have run out of patience. He suddenly stood up and picked up a teacup from the coffee table and threw it to the ground.
The teacup instantly broke into pieces!
Su Yuan was so scared that she hurriedly took two steps back with a panicked look on her face.
Ye Ci cringed as well.
Ye Ming raised his hand and pointed at Ye Ci, his voice cold and stern.
“Ye Ci! Wake up! The matter of cheating and leaking the question has become so big, do you think any other university in the country would be willing to accept you!?”
If Ye Ci had not yet turned eighteen, the result would have been even worse than this!
She could afford to have a stain on her reputation, but he could not!
“The Ye family’s reputation has been ruined by you. What more do you want!?”
At the moment, even without mentioning any others, just the aristocratic families in Yunzhou alone were laughing at them behind their backs!
Ye Ci’s lips trembled slightly, and her face was frighteningly pale.
Su Yuan stood at the side, one hand supporting the sofa and the other clutching her chest. Her eyes were filled with anxiety and fear, and she was unable to utter a single word.
Suddenly, a sharp scream was heard.
Ye Cheng had woken up at some point and run out in a hurry. When he saw this scene, he was so angry that his face had turned red.
“Dad! I won’t allow you to scold sister like this!”
The moment the anger that Ye Ming had suppressed for such a long time finally exploded, it was almost out of control.
When he heard Ye Cheng talk back to him like this, his face darkened.
“This is not your place to interrupt! Get back to your room!”
Ye Cheng was Ye Ming’s only son. Usually, Ye Ming had always doted on him, even indulging and spoiling him.
If not, Ye Cheng would not have been raised to have a temper that was so arrogant and willful.
This was the first time he had gotten so angry at Ye Cheng.
Ye Cheng was also stunned, and his whole body froze to the spot.
Only then did Su Yuan come back to her senses and hurriedly walked over.
She did not dare to provoke Ye Ming now. She did not even dare to try to persuade him. She could only walk over to Ye Cheng’s side and grab his shoulder, wanting to push him back.
As she pushed him, she scolded him in a low voice.
“Lil Cheng, how dare you talk to your father like that? Go back to your room quickly!”
Ye Cheng stood there stubbornly without moving.
He was only ten years old this year, but being a chubby child, Su Yuan could not do anything to him as he stood there.
After the initial shock, he finally came to a realization. He then opened his mouth and started to cry.
The spacious and luxurious villa was in a mess, and his ear-piercing cry echoed in the air.
Suddenly, the door was pushed open from the outside.
Ning Li walked in from the outside, and her footsteps paused slightly.
Looking at this absurd and embarrassing scene, her expression was as calm as ever. She raised her eyebrows slightly, as if she was sizing up and appreciating it.
It was as if what was presented in front of her was a masterpiece that needed to be appreciated.
Other than Ye Cheng who was still crying, the other three had frozen and fallen into dead silence.
This scene was extremely embarrassing.
No one had expected that Ning Li would come back at this time and accidentally encountered this scene!
However, she seemed unaffected. Her gaze swept past the faces of the few of them one by one before she lifted her legs and walked upstairs.
Her expression was calm, her shoulders and back were straight, and her figure was slender.
The girl’s footsteps were very soft, but at this moment, every step she took seemed to be particularly ear-piercing and clear.
It was as if everything around her had nothing to do with her.
Ye Ci stared at her as she walked upstairs, the distance between them getting closer and closer.
The resentment and anger in her heart almost burst out of her chest!
However, Ning Li did not seem to notice it at all. She did not even give her a superfluous look as she brushed past her.
“You’re very pleased with yourself, aren’t you?”
As the two of them brushed past each other, Ye Ci suddenly spoke in a low voice.
Her words seemed to be squeezed out of the gaps between her teeth, one word at a time, with unconcealed hatred and resentment.
“Ning Li, are you crazy with joy at seeing me reduced to such a state?”
