Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Early the next morning, Jiang Yuning and Ku Jie met up with the Lu family lawyer, Lawyer Zou, at the villa.
&x201C;You want to restart an investigation to find out the main reason behind the Jiang family&x2019;s sudden bankruptcy in the past? After determining the root cause, which is Miss Fu, you want to demand compensation for everything that she has done to the Jiang family?&x201D; Lawyer Zou asked Jiang Yuning and Ku Jie as he flipped through the evidence that they had submitted to him.
&x201C;I want to know if I am able to file a lawsuit against Miss Fu for embezzlement and I would like to know the chances of success for my case,&x201D; Jiang Yuning quickly replied.
Lawyer Zou, who was slightly dark skinned and wore glasses, slowly pushed his glasses up the bridge of his nose before looking at Jiang Yuning and replying, &x201C;The case involving the Jiang family&x2019;s sudden bankruptcy had caused a huge sensation in Luo City in the past. Everyone including the second young master Lu started looking for Fu Yahui after she disappeared, but no one could locate her at that time. Who would have guessed that Fu Yahui would actually return to Luo City and roam around freely so many years later?&x201D;
&x201C;Did she really think that she could get away scot-free? Furthermore, second young master Lu was the one who had repaid the debt of eight hundred million yuan on behalf of the Jiang family. As a matter of fact, plenty of evidence still remains and it would therefore not be difficult to file a lawsuit against Miss Fu. However, the crime of embezzlement is a public prosecution case and therefore, we would have to file a case with the police after preparing all the relevant evidences.&x201D;
&x201C;There is something else.&x201D; Jiang Yuning took out the written agreement that she had signed with Fu Yahui that day. &x201C;If I were to expose the truth and file a lawsuit against Fu Yahui in two days&x2019; time, will I be in breach of this contract?&x201D;
Lawyer Zou looked at the document before asking Jiang Yuning, &x201C;Has she fulfilled her part of the bargain?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning shook her head and replied, &x201C;No. She has only banked in half of the amount to me.&x201D;
&x201C;She would then be the one to breached the contract first,&x201D; Lawyer Zou replied. &x201C;Miss Jiang, you can be rest assured. Since the second young master has assigned this task to me, I will definitely win this case for you. However, I would like to inform you that if Miss Fu is convicted of embezzlement, she would be sentenced to a minimum of five years in prison as this involves a huge amount of money. Will you be able to accept that?&x201D;
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t that what she deserves after everything that she has done? She has to accept the consequences and pay for her own greed,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied firmly as she looked at the lawyer.
&x201C;Alright then, since I already understand what your stand is, I can take my leave now. As soon as we have prepared all the necessary relevant information, we will then report the case to the police and carry out the relevant procedures.&x201D;
Both Jiang Yuning and Ku Jie stood up together to see Lawyer Zou off after their discussion. At this time, Ku Jie suddenly received a phone call from the young paparazzo, informing him that someone had released news that Huo Yuxi had cervical cancer to X Society.
&x201C;Brother Ku Jie, should we release this information? I feel as though we do not need to give any more attention to that kind of woman.&x201D;
Ku Jie looked at Jiang Yuning to ask for her opinion on this matter.
Jiang Yuning shrugged before replying, &x201C;This time, I agree with the young paparazzo. There is no need to pay any more attention to Huo Yuxi. After all, we will be starting a lawsuit against Fu Yahui in less than two days. When that time comes, there will also be an investigation on Dongheng Enterprise and both Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi.&x201D;
&x201C;But Brother Ku Jie, I have discovered something even more interesting than the fact that Huo Yuxi has cervical cancer. I heard that Huo Yuxi had a new handsome and rich boyfriend whom she had been really involved. In the end, however, he turned out to be merely a male escort who was working full time at a nightclub. He is not wealthy, nor did he come from a prestigious family. Huo Yuxi was played like a fool.&x201D;
&x201C;Cough&x2026;actually, I have known this fact for quite a while already,&x201D; Jiang Yuning suddenly replied.
Both Ku Jie and the young paparazzo stared at Jiang Yuning with a puzzled expression on their faces. Was this matter related to her?
&x201C;Don&x2019;t look at me like that. I had heard from second brother that Lu Zongye was trying to exact revenge on Huo Yuxi and therefore, he is the mastermind behind this matter.&x201D;
&x201C;If that is the case, then we will just let her be,&x201D; Ku Jie replied coldly as he did not want to waste any more time on Huo Yuxi. &x201C;Are you going to shoot your short video later in the afternoon? I have already prepared the script for the storyline of your next issue.&x201D;
&x201C;Clap!&x201D; Jiang Yuning was extremely excited. She could not wait to start shooting her next short video. &x201C;Hurry up and show me the script for my next video!&x201D;
In fact, X Society did not need to get involved with the matter regarding Huo Yuxi&x2019;s cervical cancer because another similar website had already started posting reports and articles confirming Huo Yuxi&x2019;s terminal illness.
The hospital that Huo Yuxi had visited was an informal private hospital that did not effectively protect and maintain confidentiality of their patients.
Therefore, the news quickly spread like wildfire.
[I heard that Huo Yuxi has gotten cervical cancer. That is so disgusting!]
[Well, the entertainment industry is a very chaotic place to begin with. I wonder how many partners she has on a usual basis.]
[I think it is game over for the top actress now. I am a doctor and I am absolutely certain that she has contracted cervical cancer.]
Huo Yuxi did not know that the news of her terminal illness had already been exposed and shared on the internet. At this time, she had just gotten home in a very depressed state.
As soon as she entered the front door, Fu Yahui got up from the sofa and started yelling at her. &x201C;You still have the guts to go out now? Do you know that you are all over the internet again?&x201D;
Tears started falling from Huo Yuxi&x2019;s eyes as she stared at Fu Yahui and said, &x201C;Can you not speak to me with such hatred and disgust in your voice?&x201D;
&x201C;Look at this. Take a look at this for yourself,&x201D; Fu Yahui replied as she pushed her cell phone into Huo Yuxi&x2019;s hand.
Huo Yuxi glanced at the article on the internet and she quickly exclaimed in horror, &x201C;Who leaked this information out to the public?&x201D;
&x201C;So, is this really true?&x201D;
&x201C;Yes, it is true. I am terminally ill. I have been successfully cursed by both you and your precious biological daughter. Are you happy now?&x201D; Huo Yuxi asked as she returned the cell phone to Fu Yahui. &x201C;Fu Yahui, I am warning you right now. If you continue to provoke and embarrass me any further, then the both of us can just die together.&x201D;
Fu Yahui was infuriated by Huo Yuxi&x2019;s statement and she quickly grabbed hold of Huo Yuxi&x2019;s arm before giving her a tight slap across her face. &x201C;Your father has already given his instructions. He is asking you to go abroad and cure your illness. Stop embarrassing us and the family.&x201D;
&x201C;You will not have a good ending too,&x201D; Huo Yuxi replied as she stared at Fu Yahui before she smirked. &x201C;Jiang Yuning will definitely make sure that you lose everything that you have right now.&x201D;
After speaking, Huo Yuxi turned around and returned to her bedroom, slamming the door as hard as she could.
Fu Yahui&x2019;s head was spinning because she did not understand how the Huo family could have a daughter like Huo Yuxi.
She did not even feel any pity for someone like Huo Yuxi.
What else could she do?
This was how it was going to be because Huo Yuxi was not her biological daughter anyway. Though she had sometimes felt pity towards Huo Yuxi, her hatred for Huo Yuxi had grown exponentially over the past few weeks.
Later that afternoon, Jiang Yuning started shooting the second issue of her short video, titled
The monster felt extremely betrayed and infuriated, and she decided to bring terror upon the world. She reincarnated as a dragon to seek revenge upon the monk who had poisoned her to death.
Jiang Yuning really liked the story because she finally understood how it must have felt to love and hate someone at the same time.
When she had just started her relationship with Lu Jingzhi, she had always wondered about the kind of feelings Lu Jingzhi had felt for her in the past.
It was only until after she had acted as the monster in the story that she finally understood how terrible it must have felt to love and hate someone so much to the point of being unable to let go of that person even though it hurts. This must have been what Lu Jingzhi had felt in the past.
After the end of the shooting, Jiang Yuning suddenly started to miss Lu Jingzhi very much.
She did not know what he was doing and she could not even be sure if he was safe and sound at the moment.
