The Little Brat’s Sweet And Sassy

Chapter 666 - A Bowl of Porridge

Chapter 666 A Bowl of Porridge

Ning Li knocked on the door.

Knock, knock.

Shen Zhijin came back to his senses and looked up.

“Teacher Shen.”

Ning Li walked over. Lu Huaiyu followed behind her and placed a thermos on the bedside table.

Ning Li said, “This is some porridge that I cooked for you. I hope you will have some.” Shen Zhijin’s gaze swept over the thermos and nodded lightly. “Thank you.”

His expression looked calm and indifferent, as if all the vulnerability and silent aura that surrounded him as he stared at the watch earlier had only been an illusion.

Lu Huaiyu opened the thermos bucket before Ning Li scooped out a bowl of porridge and handed it to Shen Zhijin.

Shen Zhijin smiled faintly.

“It’s just a small injury. There’s no need for so much fuss.”

The wound was ten centimeters long and it was very deep. How could it be considered a small injury?

Ning Li pursed her lips.

“You saved me. This is what I should do.”

She was still holding the bowl of porridge in her hand.

Shen Zhijin looked up at her.

There seemed to be a subtle confrontation between the two of them.

After a while, Shen Zhijin compromised and took it with his uninjured right hand. Lu Huaiyu opened the small table over the hospital bed.

Shen Zhijin thanked him.

The wound on his left arm had been stitched up and wrapped with white gauze. Although there was no fracture, it would not be good to exert too much strength for a period of time. The doctor advised him to take good care of it.

The fragrance wafted throughout the room, and as the warm porridge entered his stomach, the warmth spread through the rest of his body.

Ning Li casually pulled a chair next to him.

“I’m not sure if it suits your taste.”

Shen Zhijin paused.

“Ning Li.”

He raised his eyes slightly and looked at her with gentle eyes.

“You don’t have to feel guilty. Even if it wasn’t me, there were other people who were there that day who would have come forward to help.”

Ning Li shook her head.

“But it was you who helped me, not the others.”

There were no ifs.

In this world, there had never been any ifs.

Seeing her stubbornness, Shen Zhijin shook his head and smiled.

The little girl had a stubborn personality. No matter what he said, it would probably be useless, so he might as well not talk about it.

He changed the subject.

“So, who were those people yesterday? Why did they attack you?”

As he said this, he furrowed his brows slightly, and his expression turned cold. At that time, he had been standing in front of Ning Li, and he had seen everything clearly. The three people had suddenly rushed out from the side alley. They had held steel pipes in their hands and rushed towards Ning Li without any hesitation.

It was obvious that they had planned it beforehand and had deliberately set up an ambush there.

Ning Li was usually busy with her studies and experiments. Who could she have possibly offended this time?

“Ye Ci.”

Ning Li said lightly. After the incident yesterday, the three people had immediately been escorted back to the police station.

Later, Lu Huaiyu had personally come forward to pressure the police. They had interrogated them that night to find out everything.

Shen Zhijin searched through his mind for this name and quickly remembered something.

Wasn’t that Ning Li’s stepfather’s daughter?

He had never bothered about such things, but he had a very good memory. He had heard Yan Qiu and the others mention it before occasionally, which was why he remembered it.

“Was that the person who called you on the day we returned to Xijing University?”.

Ning Li had not expected Shen Zhijin to be able to guess this, so she nodded.

“Yes.”

Hearing this name, Lu Huaiyu’s expression became a lot fainter, and a faint coldness appeared in his eyes. “Those three men have criminal records, and they are the kind of people who will do anything for money. Ye Ci spent 300,000 yuan to hire them to attack Ah Li.”

Money could make even the devil move the millstone.

These people had been wandering outside the red line of the law all year round. For money, they were willing to do anything.

“Their original plan had been to kidnap Ah Li and take her away. But when it snowed, they decided to attack her instead.”

If the plan was not completed, they would not be able to receive the money.

10icy.

After some discussion, they had decided to teach Ning Li a lesson and collect some interest. At least they would have something to show for their efforts when they went back. At that time, there were few people on the road and the sky was dark. Would it not be easy for three strong men to take care of an eighteen or nineteen-year-old girl?

However, they had not expected Ning Li to have pretty good fighting skills, and Shen Zhijin happened to be there as well.

Hence, it ended up like this.

The three men were also cunning. In order to mitigate their crimes, they had not hesitated to expose Ye Ci and had put all the blame on her.

Shen Zhijin frowned even more at the thought thatYe Ci could actually do such a thing.

If it had not been for the fact that he had been there, if there had not been people around, if Ning Li herself had not dodged that fatal blow in time…

The consequences would have been unimaginable.

He looked at Ning Li.

So, she lived in such danger every day but never mentioned it?

Lu Huaiyu continued, “But Teacher Shen, don’t worry. At lam, Ye Ci was arrested in her rented house.”

With Shen Zhijin involved and Lu Huaiyu making an appearance, the efficiency of the police was extremely high.

Ye Ci had probably not expected the matter to be exposed so quickly. She had been stunned when she was arrested.

Lu Huaiyu smiled.

“I believe that the police will soon give a fair result.”

The authorities had said that Ye Ci had refused to admit her guilt in the beginning and had continuously insisted that she had been wrongly accused. She had also said that Ning Li must have framed her, or set this up, etc.

It was not until the police had thrown the evidence down in front of her that she had finally stopped.

It is believed that during this period of time, her days inside should be very “good”.

Hearing that Ye Ci had been arrested, Shen Zhijin was relieved.

No matter what, it was really hard to guard against being watched by a person who was hiding in the shadows.

Perhaps Ning Li could dodge the bullet once, but she might not be able to avoid it every time.

Thinking of this, Shen Zhijin suddenly looked at Ning Li. At that time, the situation had been dangerous, so he had not thought too much about it. However, now that he thought about it, he realized something.

That did not seem to have been the first time that Ning Li had been involved in a fight.

This had not been an ordinary petty fight, but a truly violent collision. He remembered clearly that at that time, the three men approached with steel pipes. The one in the middle had tried to smash Ning Li’s head without even saying a word.

In such a dangerous and urgent situation, Ning Li had actually managed to dodge the blow successfully.

Later, as she had fought with those men, it was not difficult to see that she had not learned it professionally.

She had dodged nimbly, and her attacks were steady and ruthless.

It was obvious that she had gained experience through a lot of practice.

Previously, Shen Zhijin had only known that her parents had divorced when she was young, and she had been dependent on her grandmother. Her family had been in a difficult financial situation, so she had started to think of ways to work and earn money to support her family at a very early age.

But now, he truly realized that with her family background, there had probably been more to the hardships she had experienced in the past few years.

The fact that she had no money had probably been her most insignificant hardship.

Yet, this year, she had only just turned 18 years old.

Shen Zhijin put down the spoon as he felt a slight bitterness on the tip of his tongue. Ning Li did not know what he was thinking at the moment and said, “Teacher Shen, I think you will need to recuperate for a while. If you don’t mind, I would like to continue to help you with some matters during this period of time. Is that okay with you?”
