Lu Zongye, who was still fast asleep, jumped up of bed and hugged Huo Yuxi immediately as soon as he heard her screaming. &x201C;What happened?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi pushed Lu Zongye away and threw her cell phone at him. &x201C;Are you asking me what happened? See for yourself!&x201D;
Lu Zongye was shocked at Huo Yuxi&x2019;s attitude towards him. After all, they had just gotten married yesterday and today was supposed to be their first day as a happily married couple. However, Huo Yuxi was staring at him as though he was a complete stranger.
Lu Zongye felt very uncomfortable with the way Huo Yuxi was staring at him, but he stayed calm and patiently picked up the cell phone that she had thrown at him. As soon as he glanced at the title of the post, he quickly put down the cell phone and turned around to ask Huo Yuxi, &x201C;You know that this kind of things are always made up right? Why would you believe this article to be true?&x201D;
&x201C;This article is released by X Society! You should finish reading the entire article before you say anything else.&x201D; After that, Huo Yuxi put on her clothes before she ran out of the room to make a phone call to Millennium Entertainment.
After Huo Yuxi left, Lu Zongye sat at the edge of the bed and started reading the entire article even though he felt that it was extremely ridiculous.
&x201C;This&x2026;this is impossible. How could this even be possible? Does X Society think that they can frame me by simply posting a DNA report online? How can they prove that the DNA is mine in the first place? This is seriously ridiculous.&x201D; Lu Zongye was in disbelief and he thought that the entire situation was hilarious.
He was the happiest man in the world yesterday and today, he was labelled as an impostor who was not officially a member of the Lu family. This must be done by someone who wanted to set him up.
Yes&x2014;Jiang Yuning. It must have been Jiang Yuning!
After reading the article, Lu Zongye put on some clothes before he found Huo Yuxi in the living room. He quickly walked up to her and started explaining himself. &x201C;Yuxi, you have to believe me. How can whatever they post online be true? I will prove them wrong, okay? All I have to do is to go home and take a DNA test with my father. Trust me, okay?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi had tears streaming down her face when she turned around to look at Lu Zongye. Her heart started to waver.
This was because the man in front of her seemed to know nothing at all about this matter.
&x201C;You&x2026;really did not lie to me?&x201D;
&x201C;How can you believe this kind of nonsense so easily? I am a member of the Lu family and that is an undeniable fact. We will go back to the Lu family mansion now to get this thing sorted out and then by the end of the day, you will know that this was merely an attempt by the media to ruin my reputation. Okay?&x201D; Lu Zongye tried to reassure Huo Yuxi.
After listening to Lu Zongye&x2019;s words, Huo Yuxi wiped the tears off her face and replied, &x201C;Okay then. Let&x2019;s go. Let&x2019;s go home now.&x201D;
&x201C;Wait, I think you should ask your mother to give Jiang Yuning a call. I do not believe that X Society would release this kind of fake news for no reason. Someone must have started the rumor to frame me and destroy our happy marriage. Who else do you think would do that except for Jiang Yuning?&x201D;
When Huo Yuxi saw how passionate and sincere Lu Zongye was, she threw herself into his arms and hugged him tightly. &x201C;You are already my husband now&x2026;so you must not lie to me.&x201D;
&x201C;Don&x2019;t worry, I would never lie to you. Hurry up and give your mother a call before we head back to the Lu family mansion.&x201D;
There was so much evidence to prove Lu Zongye&x2019;s real identity, but Lu Zongye and Huo Yuxi refused to believe that it was true. This was because Li Shutong had always been very secretive and she had never told anyone, not even Lu Zongye, the truth. That was the reason why Lu Zongye was so confident and smug even amidst the chaos. How would Li Shutong react when she found out that her lie had been exposed?
As soon as Lu Zhengbai stepped into his office, his secretary quickly informed him about the news released earlier that day. He was extremely shocked when he heard the news and quickly rushed back to the Lu family mansion in order to clarify the truth.
Li Shutong was taking a bath when Lu Zhengbai suddenly pushed the bathroom door open as he held onto his cell phone. He said in a stern voice, &x201C;Put on some clothes now.&x201D;
&x201C;Is something wrong?&x201D; Li Shutong asked, as she had not known about the news yet.
&x201C;Right now!&x201D; Lu Zhengbai screamed.
Li Shutong rolled her eyes and quickly got out of the bathtub before putting on her dress. She then followed Lu Zhengbai out to the living room. &x201C;What happened?&x201D;
&x201C;See for yourself,&x201D; Lu Zhengbai said as he handed his cell phone over to Li Shutong.
Li Shutong trembled and her mind went blank as soon as she saw the headline of the article.
&x201C;Can you tell me if the DNA report is true or false?&x201D;
&x201C;This&x2026;how could this be true, Zhengbai? Everything written in this article is obviously fake! You have to believe that I am innocent!&x201D; Li Shutong said as she rushed over to Lu Zhengbai and held onto his arm. &x201C;You have to believe me&x2026;I swear, Zongye is really your son.&x201D;
&x201C;You swear? Have you seen the two DNA reports that was published in the article?&x201D;
&x201C;How can we be certain about whose DNA they had used in the DNA test? In order to identify the relationship between family members, they will need to extract and obtain a sample of your DNA. It is impossible for anyone to have obtained a sample of both your DNA so easily. Therefore, the article and the reports must be fake!&x201D; Li Shutong argued.
At that moment, the butler was standing guard at the door. In fact, he was the one who had obtained the DNA samples as instructed to by Lu Jingzhi. However, he did not have the right to say anything.
The second young master would naturally have his own arrangements when it came to this kind of matters.
&x201C;I will know if the news is real or false after undergoing another DNA test with Zongye. The truth will be revealed and there will be no use trying to deny the results of the DNA report then. If this matter is untrue, why would people want to make such a big deal out of it?&x201D;
&x201C;It must be Jiang Yuning. Hubby, it must be that little shrewd woman, Jiang Yuning. She must have made up this entire story just to retaliate against our family because she did not get to marry Zongye.&x201D;
Li Shutong and Lu Zongye were surprisingly consistent when they pointed the blame at someone else. This showed that Lu Zongye had indeed been brought up and raised by Li Shutong.
&x201C;That is right! Dad, you should not blame and accuse my mom for no reason at all!&x201D; At that moment, Lu Zongye and Huo Yuxi had both arrived at the Lu family mansion. Lu Zongye could no longer control his temper upon witnessing his father reprimanding his mother. &x201C;Yuxi has already asked Jiang Yuning to come over to the Lu family mansion. When that little shrewd arrives, I am going to ask her if she is only ever going to stop her nonsense once she has totally destroyed the Lu family.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not care if this matter is related to Jiang Yuning or otherwise. No matter what it is, I want to undergo another DNA test with you,&x201D; Lu Zhengbai insisted.
&x201C;Alright then,&x201D; Lu Zongye agreed immediately. &x201C;How can I cooperate?&x201D;
&x201C;Butler, bring a pair of scissors over here. Hair, saliva, I want you to take a sample of anything that could be used for a DNA test. I want to have the test done thoroughly,&x201D; Lu Zhengbai said.
Li Shutong was at a loss for words when she stood aside and watched as the butler collected DNA samples from both Lu Zhengbai and Lu Zongye.
She did not dare to say anything because she knew that it would be the end of Lu Zongye and herself.
Huo Yuxi started to regain her trust and confidence in Lu Zongye upon seeing how willing and determined he was to proceed with the DNA test. She then said, &x201C;This matter is definitely not as simple as it looks. When Yuning arrives later, we have to question her thoroughly about this.&x201D;
&x201C;That little shrewd just want to cause trouble in our family all the time,&x201D; Li Shutong said as she sat down on the sofa and started crying.
The situation was temporary stable for the moment.
Li Shutong thought that she would figure out a way to tamper with the DNA test after she had successfully calm Lu Zhengbai down.
In fact, Jiang Yuning had already anticipated that both Li Shutong and Lu Zongye would eventually put the blame on her. This was because she was already used to all their antics.
She knew that when they were pushed to a corner, they would have no other options but to try and push the blame to someone else so that they could prove their own innocence.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning was not surprised when she suddenly received a phone call from Fu Yahui. Since she was destined to be involved in this matter, she then decided that she should bring Chen Jingshu along with her to the Lu family mansion, so that she could personally witness the downfall of Li Shutong and Lu Zongye.
