Jiang Yuning eventually followed the care worker to Mrs. Xu&x2019;s ward. The doctor and a few nurses were on standby in Mrs. Xu&x2019;s ward, probably because she was afraid that Jiang Yuning would do anything towards her.
This was also a relief to Jiang Yuning because this way, Mrs. Xu would not be able to simply abuse her.
&x201C;You can come in, but you are not allowed to bring any reporters in as this would interrupt the patient&x2019;s rest,&x201D; the doctor solemnly warned Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning shrugged before saying, &x201C;As you can see, I am all by myself.&x201D; However, Jiang Yuning also quickly took the opportunity to open a live broadcast platform before placing her cell phone on the table, capturing a live recording of half of her face and the woman lying on the bed.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, don&x2019;t you care about your own reputation at all? How shameless can you be? I am already in this situation and you still want to come and hurt me further? Are you really inhumane?&x201D; Mrs. Xu was sitting on the hospital bed. She looked extremely fragile as she was wearing a white patient gown and she had an intravenous drip in her hand.
&x201C;I did not come here to provoke you or start a fight, but I can no longer sit around and be the scapegoat for something that I did not do. I will not stay for long. I just need to ascertain what really happened that night. Mrs. Xu, in your statement to the press, you said that you walked in on me half-naked in the hotel room. Is that really the truth?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied calmly to Mrs. Xu&x2019;s accusations.
&x201C;Little shrewd, why would I lie? The reporters even have the photographs to prove it&x2014;&x201D;
&x201C;Mrs. Xu, please do not spread any false information. I was appropriately dressed in all the photographs that the reporters had taken of me. There was nothing wrong with that,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly corrected her before she could finish speaking.
&x201C;That is only because the reporters arrived late! When I walked in on you, you were not wearing any clothes!&x201D; Mrs. Xu insisted, refusing to let Jiang Yuning off the hook.
In Mrs. Xu&x2019;s view, there was no one else present at the scene that night and therefore, there was no way Jiang Yuning would be able to prove that she was really innocent. After all, she was heavily pregnant and so she could easily gather the support of the public if she acted as the victim. There was absolutely no way that Jiang Yuning would be able to turn this around.
&x201C;If you put it that way, this means that you saw the big scar that I have on my chest?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked.
&x201C;Of course, I did. In fact, I saw it very clearly,&x201D; Mrs. Xu replied confidently.
After listening to Mrs. Xu&x2019;s words, Jiang Yuning smiled before slowly removing her white coat. She then pulled down the straps of her little black dress.
After removing the straps of the dress, Jiang Yuning revealed a clear view of her clavicle. &x201C;But I am sorry Mrs. Xu. As you can clearly see, I do not have a scar on my chest.&x201D;
Mrs. Xu snorted. She had not expected Jiang Yuning to be so cunning as to trap her this way.
&x201C;Well, I must have been confused. After all, a pregnant woman does not have a good memory.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then, we will just assume that you remembered wrongly. I totally understand, considering you are a pregnant woman. However, I entered the hotel at 9.50pm that night and I came out of the hotel at 10 pm. I also needed to wait for the elevator during that period. How would I be having an affair with your husband in a matter of a few minutes? Why don&x2019;t you tell me how that is possible?&x201D; Jiang Yuning continued questioning Mrs. Xu by pointing out the loophole of the event that supposedly occurred that night.
&x201C;How would I know how the both of you did what you did? Anyway, all I know is that it was a good thing I walked in on you and my husband. If not, I wouldn&x2019;t know how long this extramarital affair would have lasted.&x201D; Mrs. Xu continued playing the victim although she realized that her argument was not logical at all. After all, she was pregnant and this was her trump card. &x201C;Jiang Yuning, you destroyed our marriage and you have broken up our happy family. I am not done with you yet. You are such a shameless woman.&x201D;
After she had spoken, Jiang Yuning did not refute her accusations. She just sighed and said, &x201C;Well, since things have already developed to this point, I guess there&x2019;s no point in hiding it any further. You are right. The relationship between Director Xu and I is indeed not as simple as it seems.&x201D;
&x201C;You&x2014;You are indeed a shrewd woman. You are asking to die&x2014;&x201D; Mrs. Xu screamed as she was extremely agitated. The doctor and nurses were all perplexed by the sudden turn of events and the sudden change in Jiang Yuning&x2019;s attitude.
Jiang Yuning suddenly smiled as she rubbed her lower abdomen. &x201C;Actually, since the truth is already out in the open, then I shall not hide anything anymore. Mrs. Xu, you are not the only one who is pregnant. Anyway, I will not be able to be an actress anymore because I am already pregnant so I guess it would be a good idea to just stay by Director Xu&x2019;s side. After all, he already told me that he was going to divorce you because he is sick of you being so fierce to him all the time. Besides that, he also likes that I am beautiful and so much younger than you are.&x201D;
Mrs. Xu could not help but widen her eyes in shock when she heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words.
&x201C;That is impossible!&x201D;
&x201C;Why is it impossible? Mrs. Xu, although I feel sorry towards you, I am already pregnant with Director Xu&x2019;s baby, so I have to do what&x2019;s best for me and my baby. I have to start making plans for my baby. If you do not believe me, you can make a trip to my gynecologist together with me,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said.
&x201C;No, I am absolutely sure that is impossible. It is impossible for Xu to have any sort of sexual intercourse or physical touch with you. I keep tabs of his whereabouts all the time so I know that it is impossible for him to be out fooling around without my knowledge. Stop trying to lie to me!&x201D;
Mrs. Xu quickly refuted Jiang Yuning&x2019;s statement in her emotional state and she did not realize that she had contradicted herself.
&x201C;But&x2014;I am really pregnant&x2014;that night&x2014;&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t tell me that you found out you are pregnant when it has only been a week since the incident. Furthermore, even if you are really pregnant, the baby could not be Xu&x2019;s baby because he was drugged and unconscious that night so he definitely did not do anything with you. Who knows whose baby you are really carrying? You are such a despicable and shrewd woman.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning could not help but laugh out loud when Mrs. Xu blurted out the truth in a moment of anger.
&x201C;Thank you for telling us the truth, Mrs. Xu.&x201D;
When Mrs. Xu saw Jiang Yuning reaching out her hand to adjust the live broadcast, she suddenly realized that she had blurted out the truth. She pointed her finger at Jiang Yuning and started yelling, &x201C;You set me up?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, I am not pregnant but I think it is clear to everyone, who was the one who had framed the other.&x201D;
&x201C;Everyone who has eyes and ears should know clearly by now. Mrs. Xu, you are the one who said that you hold a tight rein on Director Xu and that you keep tabs on his whereabouts so it was impossible for him to cheat on you. You are also the one to say that it was impossible for Director Xu to cheat on you that night because he was drugged and therefore, he was totally unconscious. You are the one who said everything, so how did I set you up?&x201D; Jiang Yuning picked up her cell phone and waved it in front of Mrs. Xu&x2019;s face. &x201C;Anyone who is watching this live broadcast can testify on my behalf.&x201D;
&x201C;Doctor! Doctor! My stomach hurts. My stomach is hurting so badly! Jiang Yuning, if anything happens to my child, I will make sure you pay for it.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning crossed her arms in front of her chest as she watched Mrs. Xu&x2019;s acting. She was not shocked as she had already anticipated that Mrs. Xu would react this way. Jiang Yuning turned around to look at the doctor and said, &x201C;Doctor, sorry to trouble you. Please take care of Mrs. Xu and the fetus and make sure that nothing happens to them. I will take care of all the medical expenses on their behalf.&x201D;
The doctor quickly performed a medical check on Mrs. Xu and then impatiently said, &x201C;Mrs. Xu, your fetus is very stable. There seems to be nothing wrong at all.&x201D;
&x201C;How is that possible? She&x2014;she is agitating me! How can the fetus be fine?&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry, the fetus is absolutely fine.&x201D; This time, the doctor was not taking Mrs. Xu&x2019;s side anymore. Initially, the doctor had sided with Mrs. Xu because he thought that she was very pitiful to have encountered such a situation when she was pregnant. However, he had not expected Mrs. Xu to be the one setting Jiang Yuning up and framing her for something that she did not do.
The world was a scary place indeed.
When the doctor pulled the curtain aside, Jiang Yuning smiled and waved her hand. &x201C;Hello, Mrs. Xu.&x201D;
&x201C;Why are you still here?&x201D;
&x201C;I will be leaving now,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she looked at her watch. It was already lunchtime and she was already feeling hungry. &x201C;However, I just want you to know that my lawyer will be contacting you soon. I do feel sorry that you have to attend court sessions and be sued when you are pregnant, but judging from the situation that we are in right now, I don&x2019;t think that you care that much about your fetus anyway. Therefore, I no longer feel sorry for you anymore. Goodbye!&x201D;
Mrs. Xu sat on her bed as she grabbed the bedsheet tightly in her hands. She was so angry and frustrated, but she had no way to deal with Jiang Yuning.
