Chapter 85: Did Jiang Yuning Ask You to Come?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Huo Yuxi was very emotional and her tone was very strong when she made her statement. It seemed as though she wanted to vent all of her anger, dissatisfaction, and resentment towards Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;I was already broken but these parties continued oppressing and insulting me. I kept telling myself to just endure it and that I should just be patient because it will all pass, but my patience resulted in me being unable to even protect my own child. I was so overwhelmed by everything that Jiang Yuning had done to me that I suffered a miscarriage.&x201D;
At this time, Shen Yichen was together with Jiang Yuning at a room in the hotel located directly opposite the Royal Hotel. They were watching a live video of the press conference that was directly recorded by a reporter present at the scene.
&x201C;Wow, I did not expect that she would be so thick-skinned and desperate to even try and push the blame on me for her own decision to abort her baby. I guess that she has already forgotten the look on her face when she found out about Lu Zongye&x2019;s identity. Wouldn&x2019;t she be afraid, since the loopholes in her lies are so apparent?&x201D;
Shen Yichen, who was seated beside Jiang Yuning, was initially very calm and composed, but as soon as he heard what Huo Yuxi had just said, he was on the verge of exploding in anger. He could not comprehend how Jiang Yuning could remain so calm despite all of that.
&x201C;You do not want me to intervene in this matter, so I hope that you are already preparing to counterattack&x2026;&x201D; Shen Yichen said anxiously to Jiang Yuning as he pointed at the live video.
&x201C;Director Shen, where do you think I could have obtained a live coverage of the press conference? Before I left the villa, I had already asked my brother to arrange for the best reporter in X Society to attend the press conference. Furthermore, my mother is already on her way to create a scene at the press conference. Do you really think that I would need to step out personally to attend to this kind of matter? No, and I will not give her that satisfaction of dragging me down with her because she does not deserve anything from me.&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words fell, a young female reporter suddenly stood up at the scene and interrupted Huo Yuxi&x2019;s words directly. &x201C;I cannot continue listening to your lies, Huo Yuxi. You keep saying that you had a miscarriage and lost your baby because of Jiang Yuning. That is the biggest joke that I have ever heard. In fact, didn&x2019;t you arranged to have an abortion upon discovering that your husband was just a counterfeit and that he wasn&x2019;t a young master of the Lu family?&x201D;
Everyone on the scene suddenly started to doubt Huo Yuxi&x2019;s words as soon as they heard the young female reporter&x2019;s question.
The expression on Huo Yuxi&x2019;s face changed immediately and she quickly pointed her finger at the young female reporter and asked, &x201C;Did Jiang Yuning ask you to come?&x201D;
&x201C;I am a reporter working for X Society,&x201D; the young female reporter quickly introduced herself. &x201C;Jiang Yuning does not have the ability to ask me to go anywhere.&x201D;
Huo Yuxi could not help but panic as soon as she heard that the reporter belonged to X Society.
&x201C;You do not have to panic because it is useless anyway. We can sort everything out one by one right now. First of all, we should clarify the matter regarding your abortion. You said that you were forced to have an abortion. Who forced you? X Society has evidence and pictures of you having an abortion surgery at a hospital. As soon as Lu Zongye&x2019;s true identity was exposed in the morning, you were already at the hospital in the afternoon for the abortion surgery. Can you deny that fact? Just before your abortion, the reporters had witnessed you trying desperately to escape from Lu Zongye. If you were indeed forced to have an abortion, wouldn&x2019;t it be Lu Zongye who had forced you to do it?&x201D;
&x201C;Let us look at the situation from another angle. Since you said that Jiang Yuning wanted to see you suffer and she wanted you to be miserable, wouldn&x2019;t she be happier if you gave birth to your baby? That way, you would have given birth to a counterfeit&x2019;s child. Why would she force you to have an abortion? Furthermore, it is almost impossible to believe that Lu Zongye would force you to have an abortion. He lost everything that he had overnight and the only thing that he could use to keep you by his side was his baby. Therefore, it is impossible that he would have asked you to abort the baby. The only person who would want to abort the baby is you! So, why are you trying to push the blame to Jiang Yuning?&x201D;
&x201C;I have further evidence supporting the notion that you had undergone the abortion voluntarily. Apparently, your stepmother has close connection to the hospital that you had your abortion at. Would you like to invite your stepmother to step forward and clarify the situation for us?&x201D;
&x201C;I&x2026;&x201D; Huo Yuxi did not know how to refute the young female reporter&x2019;s words. This was because she had not expected to be defeated and attacked on the spot as soon as she made her statement.
&x201C;We can analyze the entire flow of events step by step now. Initially, Jiang Yuning and Lu Zongye were engaged and they were supposed to get married eventually. However, because you had always wanted to marry into a rich and prestigious family, you kept trying and successfully snatched Lu Zongye away from your own stepsister. You got what you wanted when you finally married Lu Zongye and therefore, successfully married into the Lu family. Unexpectedly, Lu Zongye&x2019;s true identity was exposed the next day and you hence felt that this must have been planned by Jiang Yuning because she wanted to take revenge on you. Therefore, the reason why you have decided to hold a press conference today is because you wanted to expose Jiang Yuning for all her &x2018;crimes&x2019;. Am I right?&x201D;
&x201C;Excuse me, Miss Huo. Even if Jiang Yuning had really planned the situation and purposely kept the truth about Lu Zongye&x2019;s identity a secret from you, you are also to be held responsible for the entire situation. You were the one who had robbed her of her fianc&xE9; in the first place. Therefore, you should have just accepted what had happened instead of trying to push the blame to Jiang Yuning.&x201D;
&x201C;How could you be so thick-skinned to actually hold a press conference to cover up all your faults. You are not only wasting public resources, but you are also wasting all of our precious time just to give your full-blown speech that is filled with lies!&x201D;
&x201C;You knew that you can no longer stay in the entertainment industry because your reputation is already so bad. That is why you have decided to hold this press conference to drag Jiang Yuning down with you. Huo Yuxi, you are even stupider than I imagined you to be&x2026;&x201D;
The female reporter fired at Huo Yuxi continuously, leaving Huo Yuxi with no way to refute her statements and questions at all.
Were all the reporters working for X Society that amazing?
It was no wonder why X Society was always the top of the entertainment industry and that no one else could get close to X Society&x2019;s achievements even if they tried.
What kind of joke was this?
In fact, the female reporter was a trump card of X Society that Ku Jie rarely ever despatched on a task out unless it was to cover a major event.
&x201C;What else do you want to say now?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi continued sitting silently on top of the stage, and her lips were trembling a little because she was unable to come up with anything to refute the female reporter&x2019;s statements. As she had a guilty conscience, the only thing that she could do was to command the bodyguards standing around her, &x201C;Why aren&x2019;t you all doing your job? Drag this woman who is speaking gibberish out of this place now!&x201D;
The female reporter smirked as soon as she heard Huo Yuxi&x2019;s words. Huo Yuxi was Huo Yuxi indeed. Even when the truth had been exposed, she was still desperately trying to cover up for herself.
At this moment, Fu Yahui finally rushed into the banquet hall where the press conference was held. She had initially thought that Huo Yuxi would not have the guts to say anything about her. However, she had not expected Huo Yuxi to openly disrespect and criticize her in public.
&x201C;I think that the person who should be dragged out of the room is you!&x201D; Fu Yahui walked to the front of the banquet hall in her black high heels, pushing aside the security guards who were trying to hold her back. She walked right up to Huo Yuxi before giving her a tight slap across her face.
The slap across Huo Yuxi&x2019;s cheek could be heard throughout the entire banquet hall.
At that moment, the banquet hall suddenly turned silent and all that could be heard was the sound of the cameras clicking to capture the moment.
&x201C;Who was the one who came and knelt down before me, begging me to help her so that she can marry Lu Zongye and finally marry into the Lu family? And after Lu Zongye&x2019;s true identity was exposed, who was the one who came and knelt down before me, begging me to help her to get rid of Lu Zongye&x2019;s baby? Huo Yuxi, I did not expect you to be so ungrateful. Even a dog knows how to be grateful towards their own master. But what do I get from you?&x201D;
Huo Yuxi glared at Fu Yahui with hatred in her eyes because she had not expected Fu Yahui to attend the press conference and expose her lies directly.
&x201C;Huo Yuxi, remember my words today. From now on, we have nothing to do with one another. If you ever dare slander me or Jiang Yuning in public ever again, I will make sure that you pay for it.&x201D;
After saying those words, Fu Yahui pushed through the crowd of reporters and left the banquet hall with a black face.
Fu Yahui did not give the reporters the chance to interview her directly.
&x201C;What kind of trash are you? Just get out of our sight already! You are wasting everyone&x2019;s time.&x201D;
The reporters were all disgusted with Huo Yuxi. They knew that the entertainment industry was filled with drama, but they had never encountered anyone as despicable and disgusting as Huo Yuxi.
&x201C;Hurry up and just retire from the entertainment industry already. Stop coming up with all these despicable acts to set someone else up!&x201D;
&x201C;Just get lost!&x201D;
&x201C;Go, go, go. Everyone should just leave now. We should not encourage or support her despicable actions.&x201D;
