What happened to Zhong Ping?

Are we supposed to suspect a specific reason implied in the story as to why she left town/disappeared, or it it just a total mystery?


This is years later, so I don't know if you'll ever see this, but here goes.

I'm pretty sure she's the one whose relative ran after the truckload of them at one point, gave them some money for her, and told them to tell her to go to university and never come back to this town. In other words, he was helping her escape from what he knew was going to be a pointless life for her there.
