Chapter 635 - Parents

Chapter 635 Parents

Ning Li stared at the photo and her face turned pale.

Ning Haizhou had been in prison for eleven years, and he had written no more than three letters to her in that time.

Now that this letter had come so suddenly, she could almost guess the content without thinking.

She stood there for a while before replying to Tang Yi.

“Thank you, Senior Brother, I’ll come and get it now.”

The Institute of Physics’ Laboratory Building, 601.

After Tang Yi had taken the photo, he had placed the letter back on Ning Li’s desk.

Fu Niannian followed Shen Zhijin in, as they discussed the latest progress of his thesis with Shen Zhijin.

Shen Zhijin said, “Bring the thesis to me. I’ll read it now.”

Fu Niannian responded before quickly walking to his seat and turning on the computer. Shen Zhijin walked over and bent over slightly.

Fu Niannian happened to look up and noticed what Tang Yi was doing. He asked curiously, “Tang Yi, what are you holding in your hand? A letter?”

“It’s not mine, it’s Junior Sister’s.” Tang Yi glanced at the name on the letter again. “It should be from her family.”

Fu Niannian asked, “Family?”

Apart from the mother who had come to cause trouble and the younger brother who had stabbed someone, what other family did Ning Li have now?

“That’s right, the surname is Ning.”

Tang Yi stopped there.

Fu Niannian instantly understood something.

Ning Li also had a father who was serving his prison sentence.

He glanced at the letter and whispered, “Junior Sister has been in school for so long, but I’ve never seen her receive letters before…”

However, this was Ning Li’s family matter after all, so he did not say anything more.

Shen Zhijin’s gaze swept over and he immediately pointed at the screen.

“There’s something wrong with the format here.”

Fu Niannian immediately retracted his thoughts and focused on reading.

After a while, Ning Li walked in. “Teacher Shen, Senior Brothers.”

She greeted them.

Tang Yi said, “Junior Sister, I left your letter on your desk.”

Ning Li walked over and picked up the letter lightly.

“Thank you, Senior Brother.”

“You’re welcome.”

Ning Li looked at the letter and opened it.

There was only a thin piece of paper inside.

[ Ah Li, your mother came over a few days ago and told me about your recent situation. I’m happy for you. Since a very long time ago, I knew that you were very smart. Now that you’ve grown up, you’ve become very outstanding. If your grandmother knew that you were doing well now, she would definitely be very pleased.

All these years, I haven’t been able to be by your side and have made you suffer a lot. I’m sorry. I know that you have resentment towards your mother. But it’s been so many years. No matter what, she’s still your mother. Now that she is in trouble, can please you help her?

Just think of it as a plea from your dad. ]

It was a very short letter, but Ning Li held on to it for a long time as she read it.

She stood there with her eyelids slightly lowered, maintaining that posture without moving at all. She read the words on it over and over again.

er a

She felt a little confused and wanted to laugh.

However, in the end, she could not understand or laugh.

Something seemed to be colliding within her chest. It was silent and screeching, as if it wanted to tear everything apart. However, her lips remained tightly pursed, and she did not say a word.

“Junior Sister? Junior Sister?”

Tang Yi called her a few times before she came back to her senses.

She looked up and saw Tang Yi looking at her with a worried expression. “… Junior Sister, are you okay?” He looked at Ning Li, feeling that something was wrong. He did not know what was written in the letter, but he had never seen Ning Li look like that.

She was clearly expressionless, but…

Shen Zhijin and Fu Niannian heard this and looked over.

Ning Li shook her head gently.

“I’m fine.”

Tang Yi hesitated for a moment, but he still asked carefully, “That’s… a letter from your family, right?”

“Yes.” Ning Li’s tone was indifferent. “A letter from my dad.”

As she spoke, she took one last look at the letter before putting the letter back into the envelope.

Just then, her phone rang.

It was Xue Langlang calling.

She picked it up. “Hello?”

“Ning Li, why aren’t you here yet? Did you get delayed by something?” Xue Langlang asked.

She had last called Ning Li after class. Judging by the time, it had been more than enough time for her to walk over. However, there was still no sign of her, so she could not help but call Ning Li again.

Ning Li paused for a moment.

“No, I just came to the lab to get something. I’ll be there right away.”

Xue Langlang heaved a sigh of relief.

“That’s good! Then we’ll wait for you!” “Okay.” Ning Li ended the call and put her phone away. Then, she picked up the letter, tore it up, and threw it into the trash can at the side.

Throughout the whole process, her face remained calm.

It was as if what she had thrown away was not a letter from her father, whom she had not seen for a long time, but something unimportant.

The laboratory had become very quiet.

Tang Yi and Fu Niannian looked at each other, both at a loss.

This…? What kind of letter was it that she would tear it up and throw away after reading

it?

However, Ning Li did not seem to take this matter to heart.

“Teacher Shen, Senior Brother, I’ll be taking my leave now.”

After she finished speaking, she turned around and left.

After she left, Tang Yi could not help but sigh.

“This is the first time I’ve seen Junior Sister like this…”

Fu Niannian asked, “Is Junior Sister going out for dinner today?”

Tang Yi nodded.

“Yes, one of her roommates is celebrating her birthday. She said that her parents came all the way from the province to celebrate her birthday and invited Junior Sister and their other roommate to join them.”

He hesitated for quite a while before adding, “Actually, I think that letter has something to do with Junior Sister’s mother…”

After Su Yuan had come and caused a ruckus, this letter had come. It was really hard not to suspect the connection.

Fu Niannian’s lips moved as he sighed.

“No wonder.”

Other people had harmonious and happy families, but she did not.

Other people had caring parents, but she did not.

He could not help but say, “How can there be parents in this world who treat their own daughter this way?!”
