&x201C;But I know who you are. Even if you were to turn to ashes, I would still recognize you. I can disregard the fact that you actually gave me up and sold me in exchange for a baby boy, just so you could finally get married into the reputable and prestigious Lu family because you wanted to live a lavish life. However, it is impossible for me to ever forgive you for hiring someone to try and get rid of me and inadvertently breaking my legs,&x201D; Chen Jingshu replied angrily.
&x201C;I will not hesitate to hit the both of you if you continue speaking gibberish about my mother,&x201D; Lu Zongye said angrily to both Jiang Yuning and Chen Jingshu. &x201C;Where is the evidence to support everything that you are saying?&x201D;
&x201C;You want evidence?&x201D; Chen Jingshu said as she took a piece of old, yellowed paper out from her pocket.
Li Shutong&x2019;s signature could clearly be seen on top of the piece of paper.
&x201C;This is the agreement that your adoptive mother signed with your biological mother twenty-seven years ago!&x201D;
&x201C;Butler, bring the evidence to me now.&x201D; Lu Zhengbai instructed the butler as soon as he saw Chen Jingshu taking the agreement out of her pocket.
Li Shutong fell to the ground and sat there aimlessly&x2014;she thought that she had already destroyed that piece of evidence in the past.
In fact, she had personally destroyed it, so why was Chen Jingshu still able to reproduce the evidence?
The butler took the evidence from Chen Jingshu and started walking towards Lu Zhengbai, intending to pass him the evidence. But at that moment, Li Shutong suddenly rushed forward and snatched the piece of paper away from the butler before stuffing it into her mouth and swallowing it quickly.
Lu Zhengbai became even more suspicious of Li Shutong because of the way she reacted.
&x201C;We can go and have our DNA tested. We can have the DNA test again,&x201D; Li Shutong pleaded as she knelt down before Lu Zhengbai. &x201C;Hubby, you have to believe me. You should trust me rather than believe the words of these outsiders. We have already been married for so many years. You should know the kind of person I am. You know very well that I would not have the courage to do something like this.&x201D;
&x201C;Did you hear what my mother just said?&x201D; Lu Zongye retorted. &x201C;We have nothing to hide&x2026;&x201D; Lu Zongye stepped forward and helped Li Shutong up to her feet. &x201C;Get out of my house right now before I call the police.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning had not expected Li Shutong to be so shameless that she could continue putting on a show even when the evidence were all pointing to the facts.
Li Shutong was simply unbelievable.
&x201C;Jiang Yuning, will you only be happy if you frame me and set me up like this? Do you really think that my father will believe anything that you are saying just because of those fake DNA reports and because you found an imposter to impersonate my rightful identity? I really regret not letting those guys take advantage of you eight years ago.&x201D;
&x201C;It will take a few days for the results of the DNA test to be revealed. I want the both of you out of my house right now! Did you really think that you could deceive us so easily?&x201D; Lu Zongye said angrily.
At this time, the butler who had been silent all along, suddenly stepped up and stood protectively in front of Jiang Yuning and Chen Jingshu.
&x201C;There is no need to retake the DNA test because both of the DNA reports are genuine.&x201D;
Everyone, especially Lu Zongye, stared incredulously at the butler.
&x201C;Do you know whose butler you are? How dare you insult me like this? Are you trying to smear your own master&x2019;s reputation?&x201D;
&x201C;You have never been my master. My job is to serve the Lu family and you are not a member of the Lu family. You are just an impostor&x2026;&x201D; the butler replied.
&x201C;Butler, can you tell me what the hell is going on here?&x201D; Lu Zhengbai asked impatiently.
&x201C;I was the one who personally sent your DNA samples to the laboratory. Therefore, I can guarantee that the DNA reports are accurate and have not been falsified. In fact, there are legal personnel coming over at the moment to clarify the situation,&x201D; the butler quickly replied. &x201C;Lu Zongye, you are indeed 100% an impostor!&x201D;
&x201C;Miss Chen is the real member of the Lu family and she is your biological daughter. Just a while back, Miss Chen&x2019;s foster mother had contacted the second young master and revealed everything that had happened in the past to him. Second young master then instructed me to secretly investigate and gather evidence to clarify the matter so that we could uncover the truth. We were waiting to gather all the relevant evidence before informing old master Lu about this matter. However, we would not have expected X Society to get ahold of this information and expose it to the public first.&x201D;
&x201C;No&x2026;this is simply impossible!&x201D; Lu Zongye was still denial.
&x201C;It is not up to you to decide if you want to believe it or not. The truth remains unchanged. Miss Li, you had better tell everyone the truth now or else you would definitely suffer a worse fate if old master Lu finds out about this matter first. The Lu family lawyers would definitely have a way to make you pay for all that you have done.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi had made the necessary arrangements for Jiang Yuning so that he could bear all the blame by himself.
Jiang Yuning knew that this was his way of protecting her.
Lu Jingzhi had already made all the arrangements for her from the beginning to the end.
&x201C;Li Shutong!&x201D; Lu Zhengbai suddenly shouted. &x201C;Have you been lying to me all along? Is there any truth in your words at all?&x201D;
&x201C;It does not matter even if she refuses to disclose the truth. When the lawyers arrive at the Lu family mansion later, they will definitely have a way to make her confess everything that she had ever done.&x201D; The butler spoke with indignation because he could not longer tolerate both Li Shutong and Lu Zongye. He could not believe that Lu Zongye would actually arrange for someone to try and take advantage of Jiang Yuning in the past.
He was not worthy of being called a man.
This was the chance that the second young master had asked him to look out for to finally reveal the truth.
Li Shutong sat down on the sofa and she was quiet for a long time. After hearing the butler&x2019;s words, she finally broke down.
&x201C;So? What is so wrong about it? The only reason why I acted this way is because your family, the Lu family, forced me to do this! I was already pregnant with your baby at that time and yet, they refused to let me marry you. I had no other choice but to do this because I could only marry you if I had a son,&x201D; Li Shutong yelled out loud, shocking everyone in the room.
Lu Zongye and Lu Zhengbai were especially shocked by her sudden confession.
&x201C;Mom&x2026;what are you talking about?&x201D;
&x201C;You are not a child of the Lu family. I bought you for two hundred thousand yuan,&x201D; Li Shutong finally broke down and confessed. &x201C;Please do not blame me. I had no other options at that time.&x201D;
Li Shutong&x2019;s last words was Lu Zongye&x2019;s last blow. He subconsciously took a few steps backwards, backing away from her.
&x201C;Zhengbai, please forgive me. I really had no intention to do it in the past, but I only did it because I loved you too much. That is why I have made such a careless mistake.&x201D;
Lu Zhengbai did not say a word but simply got up from the sofa before walking towards Li Shutong. He then slapped her across the face and said, &x201C;You are inhumane.&x201D;
Li Shutong held tightly onto her cheek and starting crying as she sat on the floor. &x201C;I know that what I did was very inhumane but I had not other choice. I really wanted to marry you.&x201D;
Lu Zhengbai glared at Li Shutong before sitting down on the sofa again. &x201C;Lies! Everything that you say are lies! I cannot believe that I had actually raised someone else&x2019;s son for the past twenty-seven years!&x201D;
&x201C;Butler, pack up all their belongings and throw them out of the Lu family mansion immediately. I never want to see either one of their faces ever again. They really disgust me!&x201D;
At this moment, Lu Zongye suddenly realized that he was about to lose everything that he had. He quickly knelt down before Lu Zhengbai and grabbed his knees as he begged, &x201C;Dad, you have already raised me for so many years. I am still your son. Please do not drive me out of this house.&x201D;
&x201C;Get lost!&x201D; Lu Zhengbai yelled as he gave Lu Zongye a tight slap across his face. &x201C;You still have the guts to call me your dad? You are a phony! Get out of my sight now. I want you out of the Lu family mansion now!&x201D;
Lu Zongye was stunned after getting slapped by Lu Zhengbai.
For a moment, he did not even feel any pain at all.
No. He must be dreaming! This was just a dream!
Therefore, he slapped himself hard in the face, only to discover that this was not a dream, but instead reality. He really did not belong to the Lu family&x2026;
&x201C;How could this be? How can this be true?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi had been quietly watching the entire scene from the sideline and suddenly felt extremely disheartened. She had already used all sorts of despicable means and tried so hard to snatch Lu Zongye from Jiang Yuning, only to discover now that he was actually an impostor!
