Yun Shishi was unaware of this at all, but Jiang Li knew how unpleasant those rumors about her in school had been. This happened when the former was suspended from school.
Just after those rumors were spread, she coincidentally gave birth to a child out of wedlock.
This became the 'proof' that verified the 'rumors' spread around by Huang Lili.
That woman even secretly said that Yun Shishi's child was a bastard. Even if she gave birth to a son, it did not matter. A shameless vile spawn like that boy would never be acknowledged by a wealthy family.
People were, thus, even more unwilling to be friends with her.
Those boys who pursued her all believed that she was filthy.
Some even found it a disgrace to have had feelings for her before.
Jiang Li initially thought that all those rumors were true as well. She really thought that Yun Shishi was a rich man's kept woman, but unlike the rest, she remained courteous with her.
Thinking that the latter was rather pitiful, she would often go out of her way to help her.
With things as they were, the woman was unlikely to be able to get married in the future.
Which man would be willing to marry a woman who had given birth to a son at the age of 18?
Many girls in their class had large bouts of schadenfreude. They all thought that she must be suffering. Caring for a child by herself, she must be in dire straits!
Thus, many female classmates were secretly rejoicing at her misfortune. They even compared themselves to her – someone who was once a famous campus belle but now was caught in a dire situation. It was unavoidable for them not to feel a sense of indescribable superiority.
However, at the class gathering, everyone's beliefs were overturned.
She actually had a boyfriend, and he was Disheng Financial Group's CEO!
Oh, god. The Mu Group was an organization that could shake the entire stock market with just a yawn!
They naturally did not believe this to be true and was suspicious about it, but then Wang Chuande appeared and acted respectful toward the man, how could they still think it to be fake?
After the class reunion, the Du family quickly encountered difficulties.
It was rumored that because Du Jiayan and Huang Lili had offended her by saying those unpleasant things during the class gathering, the Mu family clamped down on the Du family severely. In just a few days, they were almost on the brink of bankruptcy!
That was when that these people truly believed it!
At the same time, they were envious, jealous, and even filled with admiration for her!
Following Du Jiayan's action of asking for her forgiveness, the Du family got back all its projects. The stunned and elated man was filled with gratitude toward her!
She really did take his words to heart that day when he went to her!
However, immediately after, Huang Lili's situation at home was turned upside down!
She originally had a poor family background. She was from an unknown village in the capital.
Her father used to be impressive and successful, but during the Asian Financial Crisis, his business was damaged and his factory fell into bankruptcy. He ended up with countless debts and had to return to their hometown.
Thereafter, she got a hold of Du Jiayan, and his glory was her glory. Under his family's arrangements, her father was appointed as the village secretary. Even though he no longer had the same glory as in the past, things were smooth-sailing again.
Alas, recently, her father had been anonymously reported for exploiting his authority, embezzling funds, and accepting bribes worth over a million yuan.
Her father had even reportedly embezzled government's subsidiary funds for the poor, making the amount of stolen funds to be about a few million yuan.
This village in the capital was where the government was concentrating its assistance to the impoverished. Every year, the subsidiary funds allocated to this village could reach a few million yuan. This situation that her father was caught up in was, thus, extremely serious. According to the law, not only would every asset that they owned be repossessed, he would also face the punishment of life imprisonment!
How was this okay?!
