Chapter 639 Propriety
Ning Haizhou’s letter had been torn up and thrown into the trash bin without causing any waves. Ning Li’s life continued on peacefully in this way.
In a dilapidated and narrow house, Ye Cheng was lying on the sofa playing games.
Su Yuan had just returned from buying groceries. When she saw this scene, she was once again filled with anger.
Ye Cheng turned a deaf ear to her.
Su Yuan became angrier and angrier.
Because Ye Cheng had caused so much trouble when he had stabbed someone, she did not know how much torture she had suffered during this period of time. She was under so much pressure that she had almost broken down.
However, he was still not sensible at all.
No school wanted to accept him. Instead, he was happy to stay at home every day. Other than eating and sleeping, all he did was play games.
In the past, he had always been a little arrogant and willful. However, he had not been the way he was now, stubborn and unrepentant!
She put down the vegetables that she had been holding
“You didn’t read the book I asked you to read today, did you?!”
Ye Cheng did not answer.
She quickly walked over and snatched his phone away.
“I’m asking you a question!”
Ye Cheng stood up in frustration.
“The school won’t let me go anyway. What am I supposed to read then?”
Su Yuan was so angry that her whole body was trembling.
“Then are you going to stay in here all day?!”
Ye Cheng kicked the stool beside him and raised his voice.
“I’d like to go out! But do you know what the people outside say?!”.
It was not just him, but Su Yuan as well.
The Ye family had lost everything, Ye Cheng had stabbed people, and many people even knew that Su Yuan had gone to find Ning Li. Now, whenever they were out of the house, all that awaited them was endless ridicule and disdain.
Of course, he was unwilling to go out.
“By the way, I’m out of money. Transfer me some more.”
When Su Yuan heard this, her face turned red.
“Ye Cheng! Don’t you know what’s going on at home?! What do you need money for? To continue playing games?!”
Ye Cheng was impatient. “Didn’t you go to Lincheng previously? You even said it yourself that this time, she’ll definitely help!”
Of course, the person he was referring to was Ning Li.
These words were what Su Yuan had told those people the last time they had come to collect their debts. Ye Cheng had heard it as well.
Hearing this, Su Yuan’s lips turned pale.
Yes, she had gone to look for Ning Haizhou.
She had never thought that in this life, there would be a time to ask Ning Haizhou for help.
However, she really had no other choice.
Ning Li had a grudge against her, and she had no feelings for Ye Cheng. No matter what, she had refused to make a move.
She had thought about it and gone to Lincheng to visit Ning Haizhou. She had asked him to write a letter to Ning Li.
She had thought that Ning Li would relent on account of Ning Haizhou. But until now, there had been no movement at all.
Su Yuan guessed that Ning Li must have rejected her again.
Seeing her like this, Ye Cheng knew that it was probably hopeless. He muttered under his breath.
“I knew she wouldn’t do it. It’d be better for me to go and find my sister!”
As he spoke, he snatched the phone back from Su Yuan’s hand and turned to call Ye CI.
However, even though he called a few times in a row, no one picked up the call.
Ye Cheng frowned as he looked at the phone. Ever since his sister had gone to the Capital, she had had virtually no contact with her family.
Now, he often called but no one answered.
“I don’t know why my sister has been so busy lately…”
He went back to his room gloomily and slammed the door.
Su Yuan sat on the sofa in a daze and suddenly felt extremely tired.
Friday, Advanced Math class.
Ning Li’s phone lit up. It was a friend request.
Note: Gu Tingyun.
Lu Huaiyu turned his head and raised his eyebrows slightly.
“The third master of the Gu Family?”
“Yes, he should be arriving in the Capital soon.”
As Ning Li spoke, she accepted the request before looking at him.
“I agreed to treat him to a meal the other day to thank him for helping out that time.”
She briefly explained the situation that day to Lu Huaiyu.
Lu Huaiyu understood.
“Then, he should indeed be treated to this meal.”
He thought for a moment.
“How about this, I’ll hire a chef to prepare the dishes according to the menu and get them delivered to Rongyue Mansion. When the time comes, I’ll invite the third master of the Gu family over myself.”
Since it was a thank you, there was always a need for sincerity. Ning Li considered whether she should personally cook the dishes, but the menu was indeed somewhat difficult.
Lu Huaiyu’s idea was feasible.
She said, “Why don’t we go to Shuiyuan Shijia? After all, he helped me…”
The corners of Lu Huaiyu’s lips curled up.
“He helped my girlfriend. It’s appropriate for me to thank him too.”
Ning Li, “…”
This man was still brooding over the fact that the third master of the Gu family had been ahead of him…
Gu Tingyun sent a message over.
( Ning Li, I’ll be arriving in the Capital tomorrow. I wonder if I could have the meal that you agreed to treat me to tomorrow? ]
Ning Li nodded at Lu Huaiyu.
“Alright, Rongyue Mansion it is then.”
After saying that, she lowered her head and replied to Gu Tingyun. [ You’re very welcome. What time is your flight tomorrow? Would it be better to set it for the afternoon or evening? ]
After a while, a line of words was sent over from the other side. The tone was very friendly and gentle.
[ You shouldn’t be having classes on Saturday, right? But it depends on your time. I’ll be traveling by private plane so it’ll be faster. ]
Ning Li, “…”
( Then let’s do it at noon. Second Brother and I will be waiting for you at Rongyue Mansion. )
This was Lu Huaiyu’s place of residence.
Gu Tingyun tapped his phone and smiled.
This kid from the Lu family was really…
[ Sure. ]
Just as he finished replying, he heard a voice coming from the front. “Third Brother, what are you so happy about?” Gu Tingyun raised his head and saw Gu Tingchuan walking over, his eyes casually looking at his phone.
He quietly held his breath.
“Nothing much. I was just discussing with Big Brother that I’ll be going to the Capital tomorrow.” Gu Tingchuan was not bothered and nodded in response.
He thought of something and frowned. There was a slight furrow between his brows. “Oh right, when you go this time, please give Big Brother a reminder.”
Gu Tingchuan snorted.
“I just found out yesterday. Big Brother invited Ning Li to his home in the Capital a few days ago for dinner. Gu Siyang even sent a group photo to Mother. I heard that Mother looked at it for a long time…”
As he spoke, his brows furrowed even more, “Back then, Big Brother clearly promised that everything would be fine, so why is it like this now? When you go, remember to remind him. It’s not that we don’t want them to interact with Ning Li, but Big Brother should at least grasp the boundaries!”
Gu Tingyun put away his phone and gave a slight smile.
“Alright, I got it.”
