Chapter 956: Shen Li?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The May Day holiday soon passed, and Shen Li’s school life returned to normal.
Apart from classes, she spent part of her remaining time in the laboratory and the other part of her time painting.
Everything was peaceful and quiet.
However, for the Yu family, this period of time was extremely torturous.
That was because the situation on Yu Cheng’s side had not yielded any positive outcomes.
The police were strictly monitoring all FN personnel involved in the case, including Yu Cheng. At the same time, they were also investigating the origins of the drugs in FN.
In short, the situation was very unfavorable to them.
At an apartment in the Capital.
Yu Ming, who had rushed over from Haicheng, stood in the living room with a cold and gloomy expression.
Standing in front of him were Zhou Lan and Yu Yu.
“What’s going on?” Yu Ming’s tone was extremely cold. “Didn’t you say before that you had already asked the Xu family for help? Then why is Ah Cheng still in such a situation?!”
He had been very happy when he heard that Zhou Lan and Yu Yu had managed to persuade the Xu family to help them.
However, he had waited for a long time, yet nothing had happened.
He had not been able to hold it in any longer and had flown to the Capital to see what was going on.
In the end, he realized that the current situation was much worse than he had expected.
Zhou Lan frowned.
“Hao Yun said that Xu Rufeng has already called Zhao Hengshan that night, but who knew that the situation would still be like this now? I called Hao Yun this morning, but she said that she didn’t know the details. All she knew was that Xu Rufeng seems to have fallen out with Zhao Hengshan due to this matter.”
In fact, when Hao Yun had said these words to her, there had been a hint of resentment in the tone of her voice.
If Zhou Lan had not come to ask the Xu family for help, Xu Rufeng would not have interceded on Yu Cheng’s behalf and would not have fallen out with Zhao Hengshan to this extent.
Both of them had been friends for decades. Who knew that they would ruin their relationship over such a trivial matter?
Xu Rufeng had not done this for himself. He had been asked to intercede on Yu Cheng’s behalf.
In the end, Zhao Hengshan had not given him any face at all.
Xu Rufeng was very concerned about this matter.
After all, he had always thought that as long as he asked, Zhao Hengshan would more or less cooperate. Who would have known that Zhao Hengshan would not budge no matter what he said or did?
He was filled with anger over this matter, and he was shooting Hao Yun very unhappy looks.
Naturally, Hao Yun blamed everything on Zhou Lan.
Zhou Lan was under pressure from both sides. In addition, she was worried about Yu Cheng, and she was on the verge of breaking down.
Hearing Yu Ming’s reproach, Zhou Lan gritted her teeth. Suddenly, she looked at Yu Yu and raised her voice slightly.
“Xiao Yu, you were the one who persuaded Xu Yini the other day. What do you think of the situation now?”
Yu Yu lowered her eyes and a sense of disgust flashed across her heart.
These words sounded as if she was asking for her opinion, but in reality, she was actually criticizing her and trying to pin the blame on her instead!
As expected, hearing these words, Yu Ming looked over and frowned.
“Was it you who convinced Xu Yini? You don’t seem to be very familiar with her. Why was she willing to help you? Or… was she and her family lying to us? Perhaps on the surface, she said that she wanted to help, but in reality, she didn’t do anything at all?”
Previously, when Zhou Lan had suggested asking Hao Yun for help, he had not thought highly of her suggestion. Therefore, when he heard that it had been a success, he had been very happy.
Unfortunately, this emotion had not lasted for long. In the blink of an eye, all his expectations and hopes had been shattered.
Yu Yu pursed her lips and said, “I don’t think that’s the case. After all, it’s not good for them either… Moreover, I heard that Chief Zhao has a hard personality and a decisive approach. It’s indeed not easy to overcome him…”
“Don’t you think it’s too late to say all this now?” Yu Ming interrupted her impatiently.
The situation had gotten worse than before.
Moreover, the longer this dragged on, the more disadvantageous it would be for them.
Yu Yu shut her mouth and lowered her head slightly to look at the floor.
If she was not afraid that the entire Yu family’s reputation would be dragged down by Yu Cheng, she would not have bothered to do this.
She even hoped that Yu Cheng would stay in prison for the rest of his life and never come out again.
However, she could not.
At the very least, now was not the right time.
After thinking for a moment, she raised her head and said, “I’ll give Xu Yini another call.”
When Xu Yini received Yu Yu’s call, she was learning how to craft pottery at the pottery shop.
Anyone could give a pair of ruby earrings. After thinking about it for a long time, Xu Yini decided to DIY a piece of pottery to be given as a second gift.
This way, she could express her feelings better.
Hence, when she spoke to Yu Yu on the phone, her tone was rather perfunctory.
“What’s the matter?”
Yu Yu suppressed the many emotions in her heart and simply repeated what had happened.
“… We are very grateful that Mr. Xu was willing to help, but did something go wrong here? There hasn’t been any movement from the Capital Public Security Bureau…”
Xu Yini’s tone turned cold.
“So now you’re blaming us for not being able to help?”
“I can tell you that my father already approached him, but this matter with Yu Cheng is too big and difficult to handle. My father is also in a difficult position. So, if you really want to blame someone, you can only blame Yu Cheng himself.”
Xu Yini had not realized how troublesome this matter was at first. It was only when she saw that Xu Rufeng had encountered a problem with Zhao Hengshan that she realized that she had been too naive in her thoughts.
Yu Yu frowned and wanted to explain further, but Xu Yini had already lost her patience and hung up the phone.
Xu Yini put away her phone and looked at the store manager with a smile.
“Alright, let’s begin. I have to send this to an important elder, so I hope that the store manager can help me.”
That afternoon, Shen Li received a call from Yu Pingchuan, asking her to fetch a painting from Shuiyuan Shijia and send it to the Xijing Academy of Fine Arts. He had originally wanted to use it for class, but he had left in a hurry and forgot that Lin Yaohui happened to be sick. He was in the hospital, so he could not rush over in time.
Of course, would feel most at ease for his paintings to be entrusted to her care.
Since Shen Li had nothing to do that afternoon, she agreed.
An hour later, she arrived at Xijing Academy of Fine Arts with the canvas on her back.
The sun was shining down on the avenue.
She walked forward.
Shi Yang was coming out of the building. He had just turned a corner when his gaze suddenly focused.
The girl carried the canvas on her back and as she walked forward step by step, with an exquisite and beautiful profile.
He pushed up his gold-rimmed glasses.
“… Shen Li?”
