Su Yuan was stunned. It took her quite a while to react.
“What did you say?”
Suddenly, a car drove over from outside.
Su Yuan subconsciously looked outside and realized that it was a court car.
A few staff members in uniforms got out of the car one by one and walked over.
Su Yuan instantly panicked.
The corners of Ning Li’s lips curled up.
“It looks like it’s faster than I expected.”
The crimes that Ye Ming was suspected of did not just involve bribery, but also money laundering, illegal business operations, and so on.
All the assets under his name would be frozen and seized.
Of course, that included this expensive villa.
Su Yuan finally realized what was going on. Her legs went weak and she collapsed on the sofa.
Ning Li’s gaze shifted back to her, as if she was recalling something.
After a moment, she said calmly, “When you left that day, it was midnight and you didn’t say goodbye to me. So I kept thinking that since you didn’t say goodbye to me, did that mean that you would still come back?
“I thought that as long as I waited a little longer, I would definitely be able to wait until the day that happened.”
Su Yuan froze.
Every word that came out of Ning Li’s mouth was extremely clear. When they landed in her ears, they were like fine thorns that pierced into her heart, making it difficult for her to break free.
Suddenly, she did not dare to look at Ning Li now.
Ning Li smiled.
“It was only after a long time that I realized how foolish and naive that thought was.”
It had been so long that all her hot blood had gradually turned cold.
It had been long enough for her to pay the price of this life.
“It took me a long time to understand that in this world, there are indeed some parents and children who do not have such a deep bond. Between you and me, this bond probably doesn’t exist.”
Ning Li said softly, “No matter what, you have been my mother for seven years. So this time, I feel that I still have to formally say goodbye to you. However, this time, it’s my turn to leave first.
“You have the freedom of choice to choose what kind of life you. You also have the freedom to choose who you want to give your love to.”
“My only freedom is not to be abandoned by you a second time.”
Su Yuan’s tears suddenly flowed uncontrollably.
She covered her face, but the tears still flowed out from between her fingers.
Ning Li’s expression was indifferent, as if she was looking at an unimportant painting.
She did not know how much of her mother’s tears were because she was afraid of losing the luxurious life of being Madame Ye, and how much of it was because of her.
However, to her, that was no longer important.
She said calmly, “I’ll legally be considered an adult next month. So this month, I’ll move out and I won’t disturb you anymore.”
“Madam Ye, there’s no need for us to see each other again.”
Ning Li carried her bag and pushed her suitcase out of the Ye family’s villa.
A car was parked outside the door.
The tall and straight man leaned against the car door and looked over from afar.
When he saw Ning Li coming out, he walked over with his long legs.
He stood in front of Ning Li, bent down slightly, and looked her in the eye.
He pinched her face gently, “Come with me now.”
Ning Li looked at him and nodded.
Lu Huaiyu smiled and took her backpack, then put her luggage in the trunk.
Finally, the two of them went to the back seat together.
Cheng Xiyue’s fingers tapped on the steering wheel.
“Sister Ning Li, why do you have so few things?”
Ning Li said, “There are still some things left in Heyuan District.”
“Then, let’s go over now and pick up all your things?”
Ning Li thought for a moment and nodded.
“Thank you, Brother Xiyue.”
Cheng Xiyue started the car.
Ning Li turned her head and looked out the window.
The people from the court had already started to affix seals. Su Yuan was in a daze and in an extremely sorry state.
She retracted her gaze.
Finally, she left this place.
When they reached the He Yuan estate, Lu Huaiyu accompanied Ning Li to go up to the apartment and get her things.
In fact, it was mainly some daily necessities, computers, and so on.
Lu Huaiyu glanced at the tightly shut door to the master bedroom and raised his eyebrow.
Ning Li did not seem to have any intention of going in to pack up her things.
He asked, “Ah Li, didn’t you rent this place?”
Ning Li nodded.
Initially, she had rented this house with the intention of storing some things in it, and secondly, she had wanted to obtain proof regarding Liu Ying, Ye Ming, and the others.
Now that Ye Ming had been arrested, she did not have to live in this house any longer.
However, she still needed to find a place to store her things.
Yunding Fenghua was not a very suitable place.
The reason she agreed to live there was mainly because Yu Pingchuan and the others were very worried that she wanted to live independently.
Seeing her like this, Lu Huaiyu did not continue to ask any more questions.
In any case, he also had a key to this house.
Another reason was that after the college entrance examination was over, it would not be long before she would have to go to the Capital to attend university.
She could keep this place if she wanted to.
Yun Ding Fenghua.
Cheng Xiyue sent them back to the house.
Lu Huaiyu helped her push her luggage and pushed the door open so they could enter.
At the entrance, he bent down to help her get a pair of slippers.
It was already May, so he had bought a new pair. It was made of cotton and linen, was in a very comfortable beige color.
“Change into this.”
As he spoke, he placed the slippers by her feet.
Ning Li suddenly felt embarrassed.
“Second Brother, I can do this myself.”
If she had not seen it with her own eyes, it would be hard to imagine that such a noble and proud man would help others do such a thing.
Lu Huaiyu smiled.
“Elder Yu specially called me earlier and asked me to take good care of you. Of course, I have to keep my word.”
Ning Li was speechless.
The reason she managed to persuade Yu Pingchuan not to go back and forth between cities was because she had said that she would be staying at Lu Huaiyu’s house until the college entrance examination.
Now that Lu Huaiyu had mentioned Elder Yu, she could only listen obediently.
She changed into the pair of beige cotton slippers.
The next moment, she saw Lu Huaiyu take out a pair of gray-green slippers of the same style, only a few sizes bigger than hers.
Ning Li, “…”
Lu Huaiyu did not seem to think much of it and lowered his head to look at her.
“Which room do you want to stay in?”
The Yunding Fenghua villa had bedrooms upstairs and downstairs, so there was more than enough for Ning Li to choose from.
Ning Li said, “I’ll go back to the guest bedroom from before.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded.
He helped Ning Li carry all the things over.
Ning Li said, “Second Brother, I’ll just tidy all these things by myself.”
Lu Huaiyu nodded. Then, he thought of something and turned to leave.
Suddenly, Ning Li’s phone rang.
It was a call from Lin Fengmian.
Ning Li picked it up.
Lin Fengmian had gotten up at four o’clock in the morning to record a program until noon.
It had not been easy for him to take a break in the middle of the recording. So, only when he had gotten his phone had he seen the news on the Internet.
He immediately called Ning Li.
“Sister, I just found out that something happened to the Ye family. How are you now?”
Ning Li said, “Don’t worry, I’m fine.”
Lin Fengmian was still worried.
“Why don’t I go to look for you?”
“There’s no need.”
As Ning Li was talking, Lu Huaiyu walked in.
“Ah Li, these are the new things I picked for you from before. If you need anything else, feel free to tell me.”
The man’s voice was low and lazy, and his intimacy with her was obvious.
Lin Fengmian’s voice instantly tensed up.
“Sister, where are you now?”
