Chapter 426 - Which One Do You Like to Use?

Chapter 426: Which One Do You Like to Use?

To Ye Ming, her greatest value had been to become as outstanding as possible so that he could show it off.

She had merely been like a vase.

Now that her vase had a flaw, he did not want it anymore.

Ye Ming watched her cry and did not speak for a long time. His expression changed.

After a long time, he said, “Things have already come to this. It’s useless to say anything more. You should prepare to go abroad in the future. Don’t concern yourself with anything else.”

At first, when he had found out that the child was gone, he had indeed been extremely angry.

But now that he had thought about it carefully, if Ye Ci was really implicated because of this, in the end, he would lose more than he had gained.

He pressed the space between his eyebrows and felt extremely tired.

“I’ll go and talk to Lil Ying.”

Ye Ci cried as she turned around and went upstairs.

Ye Ming glanced at Su Yuan and then walked past her expressionlessly.

He went back to his room to get some things and very quickly left.

Su Yuan knew where he was going. Her lips moved, but in the end, she did not say anything.

When Ye Ming had left, she was the only one left in the living room. Only then did she cover her face and cry.

For the next two days, Ye Ming did not come back.

Liu Ying was bleeding heavily. She could not save the child. She had practically been on the brink of death in the hospital for the past few days.

When she had first found out that the child was gone, she had cried and made a scene. No matter what, she had wanted to look for Ye Ci and Su Yuan to get an explanation.

Ye Ming had spent a lot of effort to appease her and persuade her to give up on this idea.

The news had spread among the wealthy families in Yunzhou. However, the Ye family had made a lot of effort to suppress the matter so that it would not be exposed.

This matter seemed to have passed just like that.

After the short May Day holiday, the results of the second model exam had come out.

Ning Li was still firmly in first place with a score of 738.

In the afternoon, Ning Li and He Xiaochen went to the third floor of the cafeteria to eat.

Both of them ordered a serving of bridge-crossing rice noodles.

As they were eating, Ning Li felt someone walk up to her.

“Top student.”

The voice sounded quite familiar.

Ning Li looked up.

“Duan Xu?”

Duan Xu looked hesitant.

“Top student, are you free now? Is it convenient for you to talk?”

He Xiaochen coughed.

She was still here!

Ning Li nodded.

“If you have something to say, just say it.”

“Ah? This…”

Duan Xu scratched his head, looking very troubled.

Seeing Ning Li’s indifferent expression, he gritted his teeth and lowered his voice.

“Top student, the project of Qinghe Bridge, is it the Ye family’s?”

Ning Li’s hand that was holding the chopsticks paused.

She nodded lightly.

“Yes, what’s wrong?”

This project had been publicly tendered by the Yunzhou city government, so it was easy to find out.

Duan Xu looked even more conflicted.

“This… This… My dad is in the construction business, and he has a collaboration with Qinghe Bridge. Today, I heard from my dad that there seems to be a problem there. Did you know about this?”

Ning Li glanced at him.

“What’s the problem?”

“Just…”

Duan Xu gritted his teeth,

“That’s right, there seems to be an ancient tomb that was dug out below. The workers at the construction site had discovered it in the morning. It seemed to have been temporarily suspended. They even said that they had hired an archaeologist from the city? Actually, I don’t really know much about it anyway.”

Ning Li asked softly, “An ancient tomb?”

“That’s right! From what my father said, this matter seems to be quite troublesome.”

He Xiaochen heard it as well and her eyes widened slightly.

“An ancient tomb was discovered at a construction site? Then… This matter will take quite a bit of time, right?”

The country had always placed great importance on the protection of cultural relics. Now that an ancient tomb had suddenly been dug out, they definitely had to treat it with caution.

Duan Xu grunted.

“Exactly.”

One had to know that such a project had a construction period.

Delaying it for a day was already a great loss.

Not to mention that an ancient tomb had actually been dug up.

Once the archaeological work started, who knew how many days more it would delay?

As soon as Duan Xu heard about this, he had run over to ask Ning Li about it.

Although he knew that Ning Li did not have a good relationship with the Ye family, she was after all still living with the Ye family.

If the Ye family was in trouble, she would definitely be affected.

Ning Li nodded.

“Thank you, I got it.”

After saying that, she continued to eat her rice noodles.

Duan Xu was dumbfounded.

“No, brainiac, why don’t you have a reaction to this?”

Ning Li took a sip of the soup and thought for a moment.

Reaction?

That’s true.

She looked at He Xiaochen.

“I’ll buy milk tea later. What do you want to drink? It’s on me.”

He Xiaochen was still thinking about the ancient tomb. She did not know much about the benefits involved, so she was not sure why Duan Xu had reacted this way.

When she heard Ning Li say that she wanted to buy milk tea, her eyes lit up.

“Okay, okay! I want to drink grape-taro round boba!”

Ning Li nodded.

“Okay.”

As she spoke, she looked at Duan Xu.

“Do you have anything you want to drink? I’ll treat you to it.”

Duan Xu’s eyes widened slightly, feeling a little suspicious of life.

No, why did this suddenly involve drinking milk tea?

He knew that the top student had always been very strong, but her mental fortitude had far exceeded his expectations.

This…

His expression slowly retracted as he said seriously, “Top student.”

“A large cup of passion fruit, is that okay?”

Ning Li’s lips curved.

“Yes.”

In the end, Duan Xu accepted the large cup of passion fruit with added sugar and ice and walked back with his long legs.

He bit on the straw and thought to himself, ‘Maybe this matter won’t affect them much? After all, the top student still had the spare money to treat them to milk tea.’

On the way back to the classroom, He Xiaochen was very happy.

Milk tea, happy.

Being blessed by Ning Li, doubly happy!

Ning Li had ordered a caramel latte for herself, and the sweet, creamy taste spread between her lips and teeth.

Her phone vibrated, and she saw that it was a message from Lu Huaiyu.

It was a photo.

He looked like he was in the supermarket, and the shelves in front of him were filled with all kinds of…

Toothpaste.

He asked:

[ Which one do you use? ]
