Chapter 437 - Retribution
The next morning, when Ning Li woke up, she found that Lu Huaiyu had already made breakfast.
She sat down at the dining table.
Lu Huaiyu sized her up and saw that she looked a little better than last night.
“Are you feeling better?”
Ning Li nodded.
Although it still hurt a little, it was basically negligible.
“I already called your form teacher yesterday and told him that you would be staying at my place for the rest of this time.”
Lu Huaiyu said, “There’s no need for you to worry about anything else. Just focus on preparing for the college entrance exam.”
Ning Li was stunned.
“Thank you, Second Brother.”
Lu Huaiyu seemed to have a natural charisma that could convince people to trust him. Both Yu Pingchuan and Geng Haifan seemed to be very assured of him.
However, this was also a good thing.
Lu Huaiyu’s thin lips curved slightly.
“If you still have to thank me for such a small matter, you will never be able to finish thanking me.”
Ning Li paused. For a moment, she felt that she could not refute Lu Huaiyu’s words.
Lu Huaiyu had already helped her so much.
She drank a mouthful of milk and hummed, “… But you still have to thank me…”
Lu Huaiyu raised his eyebrow slightly. Then he changed the topic.
“Should I send you to school later?”
“There’s no need.”
Ning Li shook her head.
This place was not very far from Second High School, and the transportation was convenient. She could go there by herself.
More importantly, if Lu Huaiyu really did go to see her off, it might cause a big commotion.
That would be too troublesome.
Seeing that she insisted, Lu Huaiyu did not continue to press the issue, but nodded slightly instead.
Morning self-study, Ning Li arrived at the classroom of the senior year First Class.
There was silence in the classroom.
Almost everyone looked at her with different expressions on their faces.
News of the Ye family had already spread. Everyone knew that the Ye family was really going to be finished this time.
Because of this, Ning Li had even taken a day off yesterday. No one knew if it would affect her greatly.
Ning Li sat down in her seat.
He Xiaochen pulled her gently.
“Ning Li, are you… okay?”
Anyone who encountered such a big change would probably find it difficult to handle.
Ning Li shook her head.
He Xiaochen looked worried.
“I… I heard that the Ye family’s assets have gradually been seized. Where are you staying then?”
Ning Li’s answer was brief and concise, “I moved out from the Ye family yesterday. I’ll be staying at Second Brother’s house in the meantime.”
Hearing this, He Xiaochen immediately heaved a sigh of relief.
“Oh! Right, right! There’s still your Second Brother! That’s good, that’s good!”
She had almost forgotten about this.
Ning Li took out an English book and started reading.
He Xiaochen saw that she was indeed in a good condition, so she was relieved.
She did not know much about the Ye family and did not know what would happen in the future, but as long as Ning Li was fine, everything would be fine too.
Thinking of this, she tilted her head and lowered her voice to sigh:
“Fortunately, you still have your Second Brother. Your Second Brother is so powerful, so he will definitely be able to protect you well.”
Ning Li’s hand paused. After a moment, she let out an extremely soft “Hmm.”.
Fortunately, there was still Lu Huaiyu.
The crowd carefully observed Ning Li for a day. Seeing that she did not seem to be affected by the Ye family’s matters, they gradually calmed down.
Anyway, there was nothing to be afraid of.
Whether the Ye family lived or died, it did not have too deep a connection with her.
As long as they successfully took the college entrance examination and went to university, they would not have to worry about Yunzhou anymore.
There was less than a month left until the college entrance examination. Everyone was extremely tense and did not have the mood to think about anything else.
On the other hand, Geng Haifan had a short conversation with Ning Li in the middle.
Seeing that Ning Li’s condition was normal, he was finally relieved.
Just like that, Ning Li stayed in Yunding Fenghua.
Occasionally, the Ye family would send some news over.
Ye Ci was being prosecuted for causing negligent injury resulting in a miscarriage. It was a problem whether she could avoid being sentenced or not, let alone whether she could even study abroad.
Ye Ming’s situation was even worse. Liu Ying had gotten evidence from God knows where and dragged him down completely. Many stakeholders, along with the leader that he had bribed, had all been dragged out.
His crime was already serious, and now that he had dragged so many people down with him, there was more than one person who secretly wanted him dead.
As for Su Yuan, she had not been involved in much of the Ye family’s company’s matters.
Ye Ming had basically done all those things behind her back.
After a round of investigation and interrogation, she was released. However, the Ye family’s assets had already been frozen and sealed. She could only move out with Ye Cheng and find a small place of residence.
Ten years ago, Su Yuan had left without looking back because she had wanted to escape from the small apartment in Lincheng.
Who would have thought that she would end up in such a situation again?
In fact, she was even worse off than back then.
At the very least, she had not had any debts back then. After divorcing Ning Haizhou, she had been alone. However, she had not had any burdens at all. On the contrary, she had been very carefree.
However, things were different now.
Now that Ye Ming had been arrested, the company was left with a pile of bad debts. The people who asked for project funds could not find Ye Ming, so they could only come and look for her.
Her cell phone was almost flooded with all kinds of debt collection calls.
She tried to change her number, but it was useless. All those people could still find her easily.
Some had even come to her door and violently smashed it.
Since she was young, Su Yuan had always been good-looking. She had been favored at home and had a willful temper.
After she had married Ning Haizhou, he had treated her well and gave in to her most of the time even though they had not had any money.
Later on, she had become Madam Ye and was even looked up to and flattered by people.
When had she ever suffered such pain and suffering?
In addition, she really did not really have much ability. She could only swallow her anger and bear it silently.
Even if she broke down emotionally and became hysterical, no one would be concerned about it anymore.
At first, Ye Cheng had been unwilling to move out, but how could this matter be resolved just because he was unwilling?
He had lived a rich and luxurious life since he was young. His clothes, food, shelter, and transportation were all very good, and he had always been served hand and foot.
Now that the situation had suddenly become like this, he felt a huge drop in his heart.
He could not accept it.
He could not get used to living in the small and dilapidated house. The mattress was so hard, and the surroundings were so noisy.
He did not like anything.
However, it was useless to complain, no matter how unpleasant it was.
He was no longer the young master of the Ye family.
In school, his life was not easy either.
In the past, he had been arrogant and willful, and his relationship with his classmates was not very good.
Now that the Ye family was in trouble, no one supported him anymore, so many people came to look for trouble with him.
From time to time, traces of fighting appeared on his face and body.
When Su Yuan saw this, her heart ached and she was angry. However, she could do nothing but cry.
The entire Ye family had been implicated. Moreover, this matter was too serious. She did not know who to ask for help.
That was until Ye Ting called.
Time flew by. In the blink of an eye, it was the end of May.
One night, after the self-study session, Ning Li had just walked out of Second High School when she heard someone call her.
She stopped in her tracks and turned around to see Su Yuan standing not far away.
She walked towards Ning Li..
