Rong Qi said, “It’s okay, Mrs. Hong. I’ll have Xu Yi take me to class. I’ll give him a call and ask him to come over.”
Xu Yi used to arrive on time to report to Rong Qi, but today he hadn’t shown up. She thought something must have delayed him.
However, there was a troubled expression on Mrs. Hong’s face. She said, “Madam, Xu Yi has been kneeling in the courtyard since yesterday, begging for forgiveness. Master Shen hasn’t allowed him to stand up.”
Rong Qi frowned and said, “What’s that got to do with Xu Yi? I’ll go find him.”
Setting down her backpack, Rong Qi was about to turn and head to the study upstairs. But just as she turned, Ye Nanshen came down from upstairs.
“He…,” Rong Qi said.
“He made a mistake, and punishment is only right. 1’11 give you a ride today,” said Ye Nanshen. He stepped forward, picked up Rong Qi’s backpack, and held her hand as they walked outside. “I’ll have Zhuang Ling protect you for the next couple of days.”
“Xu Yi is fine. Yesterday’s incident wasn’t his fault, and his response was timely.” Rong Qi tried to reason with Ye Nanshen.
Ye Nanshen turned his head slightly, his gaze deep and secretive. He said, “Did you know those people had been tailing you all along? Yesterday’s incident wasn’t an accident; it was premeditated. Xu Yi follows you every day but never notices anything. 1 think his abilities are regressing. Maybe he needs to be sent back to the training camp for retraining.”
Rong Qi lowered her gaze and thought, ‘He was right. I hadn’t noticed either. Perhaps I need to go through training again…’
Zhuang Ling, who was behind them, also spoke, “Madam, Xu Yi should indeed be taught a lesson this time. Master Shen hasn’t sent him back to the training camp again, which is already showing mercy. He shouldn’t have made this kind of mistake. He’s only being punished by kneeling; he’s getting off lightly.”
No one knew how terrifying their training camp was. It was everyone’s nightmare. No one came out of there a failure unless they had committed a grave mistake or violated a taboo. Once someone like Xu Yi was sent back to the camp, their life might be at risk. So, the kneeling punishment was already merciful, sparing him the rest.
Rong Qi nodded and said, “Alright, then you can take me to the university. However, Zhuang Ling should stay with you. I’ll be fine at school.”
“Okay.” Ye Nanshen casually agreed, taking Rong Qi with him as they left.
As expected, when Rong Qi stepped into the courtyard, she saw Xu Yi kneeling there. Seeing them come out, he respectfully greeted them, “Master Shen, Madam.”
Xu Yi’s face was full of guilt. Rong Qi believed that he probably realized his mistake himself.
Unrelated to Rong Qi, but being surveilled for so long without noticing was the most fatal mistake. Xu Yi knew that Ye Nanshen was punishing him for his sake too.
‘Today’s target was Rong Qi; 1 was just lucky. If it had been Master Shen, 1 might not have survived.’
Xu Yi had reflected on his mistake throughout the night, feeling deeply ashamed.
Ye Nanshen merely gave a faint nod and then led Rong Qi away.
In the end, Rong Qi didn’t agree to let Zhuang Ling accompany her.
That group of people was still under Ye Nanshen’s control. Even if the people behind them didn’t succeed, they wouldn’t make another move for now. Besides, if they dared to come again, Rong Qi would know who was responsible.
As soon as Rong Qi got out of the car, she urged Ye Nanshen to leave quickly. Then, holding her backpack in her left hand, she headed towards the lecture building.
However, just as Ye Nanshen’s car left, before Rong Qi could turn around, a black sedan stopped in front of her.
Rong Qi saw Rong Feiyu, stepping out of the car with her backpack. But there was also someone else with her—Rong Tianshi.
However, when Rong Tianshi saw Rong Qi, he merely gave her a cold glance, then reminded Rong Feiyu in Rong Qi’s presence, treating Rong Qi as if she were invisible.
Rong Feiyu looked provocatively at Rong Qi..
