After sending away all of the students this day, Yang Xiu Er walked in, her face carried some stammering.
“Is there any problem?” Ning Meng Yao looked at Yang Xiu Er who stood at the side to look at herself but did not say anything, her brows slightly furrowed. What exactly was she thinking of? Did she come here just to watch herself do things?
Yang Xiu Er’s face carried some embarrassment and nodded her head in greeting: “Meng Yao, can I request you a favor?”
“Can you…. Can you lend me some money?” Yang Xiu Er asked tentatively.
Ning Meng Yao was still tidying up and heard her words, lifted her head to look at Yang Xiu Er: “What do you want to do by borrowing money?”
“That, my family wants to build a house and the money is not enough, that’s why…. That’s why…..” Yang Xiu Er spoke till that point and felt that she had no more face left.
That day she went home and told her mother that Ning Meng Yao did not even blink when lending Yang Le Le fifty liang silver and her mother then said to think of a way to borrow some money from Ning Meng Yao. This way, her family could live better. They had no plans of returning the money once borrowed.
Ning Meng Yao looked at Yang Xiu Er, her eyes seemed ridiculing. Seeing that kind of faze made Yang Xiu Er wanted to flee from that place.
When Yang Xiu Er wanted to turn her body and flee, Ning Meng Yao opened her mouth: “How much do you want?”
Yang Xiu Er’s eyes lit up. Was she agreeing to this? Suppressing her heart’s happiness, Yang Xiu Er opened her mouth: “Only one hundred liang.”
Ning Meng Yao could not help but laugh by Yang Xiu Er’s words. Constructing a house needed to borrow a hundred liang? And it’s only? How big of a house did her family wanted to build that they needed to spend one hundred liang?
Did she really looked that easy to bully? Anyone could come pinching and rubbing.
“Meng Yao?” Seeing Ning Meng Yao’s silent and not speaking up, Yang Xiu Er called out in hesitation.
Looking as if she had just reacted, Ning Meng Yao looked at Yang Xiu Er, red lips lightly open: “There is none.”
Yang Xiu Er who originally was anticipating suddenly heard that she was not lending and her face changed in a moment, saying unhappily: “You can lend Yang Le Le fifty liang, why can’t you lend me?”
That kind of tone that took everything for granted made Ning Meng Yao could not help but let out a low laugh: “Do I look like an idiot?”
“What?” Yang Xiu Er did not understand for a short while. What exactly did Ning Meng Yao meant? She subconsciously asked.
“Do you really think that I do not know how much building a house costs? One hundred liang, heh, Yang Xiu Er, do you really take me as a big fool?” From Yang Xiu Er’s attitude, Ning Meng Yao could see that once she lend the money out, it would unfortunately not come back to her.
Because of Ning Meng Yao’s words, Yang Xiu Er’s face magically became unpredictable and she at last darkened her face and left Ning Meng Yao’s house.
While after this, there was a rumor going around in the White Mountain Village that Ning Meng Yao was shameless and seduced a man who already had a wife and had an affair that was found out by people and was chased out, that was why she had that much money.
To this, Ning Meng Yao who rarely went to the village was not clear but the children coming to the lesson was getting smaller and smaller in number. This let Ning Meng Yao felt strange and at the same time did not mind it until Yang Le Le came over.
“Yao Yao, those people are too much.” Yang Le Le’s face was dark and ugly.
“En? What happened?” Ning Meng Yao stopped the movement of her hand and looked at Yang Le Le, opening her mouth to ask strangely.
She had not been to the village for quite a time already and obviously did not know what happened in the village.
“There was someone who said that you are shameless, having an affair with another man and because of this, they are no longer willing to send their children to your place to study. They think that you, this kind of person, had no qualification to teach their children.” With Ning Meng Yao, Yang Le Le had nothing she could not say and directly tell Ning Meng Yao everything she knew.
Ning Meng Yao looked at Yang Le Le in surprise. She actually did not do anything though? How could there be a rumor like that circulating around?
“How long had this rumor been spreading?”
“Five to six days already.”
Five to six days? Was that not after Yang Xiu Er came to her to borrow money?
So it was her, ah. Her eyes flashed with a touch of ridicule. Yang Le Le looked at the current form and curiously asked: “Do you know who it was?”
“Yes, I know.”
“Who is it?” Yang Le Le asked in surprise. She was really curious, who was it that wanted to ruin Ning Meng Yao’s name.
“Yang Xiu Er.”
