Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
By ten o&x2019;clock in the morning, Lawyer Zou had already accompanied Jiang Yuning to the police station to report the case. Additionally, Lawyer Zou had also provided all the corresponding evidence and documents to the police officer.
As Jiang Yuning was a public figure, the news that she had made a trip to the police station quickly reached the media.
However, since she was standing in between Ku Jie and Lawyer Zou, the reporters and paparazzi were unable to capture Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face in their photographs.
Nobody would have known the reason behind Jiang Yuning&x2019;s visit to the police station except for the party who was directly involved in the matter&x2026;Miss Fu Yahui.
At this time, Fu Yahui had not gotten hold of the news yet. She had been thinking to herself that luck must be on her side. Based on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s reaction so far, she probably did not even have to transfer 10% of Dongheng Enterprise&x2019;s shares over to Jiang Yuning at all.
It was already the fourth day after their agreement, but Jiang Yuning had not spoken up or taken any action against her at all. Therefore, she assumed that Jiang Yuning was probably too busy squandering the four hundred million yuan that she had already transferred to her.
Fu Yahui thought that everything was going perfectly for her.
However, as soon as she received the phone call from her lawyer, it felt as though she had fallen from heaven to hell.
&x201C;Mrs. Huo, I have something that I have to tell you. Please listen attentively to what I am about to say.&x201D;
&x201C;Jiang Yuning did not call me to chase me about the share transfer. Does that mean that I no longer need to transfer the shares over to her now?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked her lawyer as she took a sip from her cup of tea. She had a very smug expression on her face, and it seemed as if she was extremely satisfied with what she had achieved.
&x201C;About that&x2026;I have just received the news that Jiang Yuning has already made a trip to the police station to file a case against you&x2026;&x201D; the lawyer quickly replied with a guilty conscience.
&x201C;What did you just say?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked as she stood up immediately in shock. &x201C;Can you repeat what you had just said?&x201D;
&x201C;I said that Jiang Yuning has already brought a lawyer with her to the police station to file a case against you. Furthermore, her lawyer is the Lu family&x2019;s lawyer. He is very reputable because he had never lost a single case ever since he started practicing as a lawyer,&x201D; the lawyer replied.
Fu Yahui could not control herself upon hearing the news. She was extremely flustered and her hands and feet were trembling out of fear.
&x201C;Had you not told me that Jiang Yuning was only threatening me because she wanted to gain some benefits from me? Did you not say that it was impossible for her to file a case against me? I completely believed everything you said and look at what it has gotten me into!&x201D;
&x201C;Mrs. Huo, I did not know that she would really have the guts to go to the police station to file a case against you,&x201D; the lawyer replied helplessly. He could not comprehend why Jiang Yuning would do that.
After all, he had thought that Jiang Yuning was merely a stupid and helpless person who would not know what to do. It seemed as though he had misjudged her character.
&x201C;What is the use of telling me all this right now? Jiang Yuning has already told the police everything!&x201D; Fu Yahui yelled over the phone. &x201C;Have you already destroyed all the evidence that I have told you to destroy? If we lose this lawsuit, you are going down with me.&x201D;
&x201C;We do not even know if Jiang Yuning has sufficient evidence on hand to meet the burden of proof to file a case against you. Even if she does have enough evidence to do so, I will definitely dismiss this case for you.&x201D;
&x201C;That would be best!&x201D; Fu Yahui replied agitatedly. &x201C;That shrewd really does not know what she is doing.&x201D;
&x201C;However, I think that the best option would be to negotiate with her and try to get her to withdraw the case that she has filed against you. Once the police officially start an investigation, it would be extremely easy for us to lose the case.&x201D; The lawyer was now afraid to make any guarantees or promises to Fu Yahui.
&x201C;Shut up! Do you really want me to kneel down before her and beg for mercy?&x201D; Fu Yahui screamed into the phone.
Speaking of it, all of this had happened because of Huo Yuxi. When she first returned to Luo City after her plastic surgery, she had intended to start afresh without having to acknowledge Jiang Yuning. However, she was eventually discovered by Jiang Yuning after she had tried to use her relationship with Fu Yahui to create hype for herself. If she had not been discovered by Jiang Yuning, all these things would not have happened to her.
Now that she thought about it, it served Huo Yuxi right that she had cervical cancer!
However, Fu Yahui did not know that Huo Yuxi had been hiding in a corner and eavesdropping on her entire conversation with the lawyer.
As soon as Fu Yahui hung up on the lawyer, Huo Yuxi immediately made a phone call to Huo Zhendong. &x201C;Dad, have you implemented your plan yet? Jiang Yuning has already filed a lawsuit against that woman. I heard it myself.&x201D;
After listening to what Huo Yuxi had just said, Huo Zhendong immediately stood up from his office chair and said, &x201C;Are you sure that you have got the information right?&x201D;
&x201C;I am certain about it. She is now pacing around the living room because she is so infuriated,&x201D; Huo Yuxi replied coldly.
&x201C;Then I guess I really have to speed things up if I want things to go my way. Yuxi, you do not need to worry about anything. Just focus on getting yourself treated for your cervical cancer. Leave this matter to me.&x201D;
That woman had misappropriated so much money from the Jiang family. If she was arrested, she would definitely be sentenced to at least ten years in prison. Even though he was married to her, he would not allow his family or his own reputation to be hurt because of that woman. She should not blame him for being ruthless since things had already come to this stage.
Fu Yahui felt extremely overwhelmed and helpless. She knew that this matter would be made public very quickly. She knew that she had power to control Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi, but there was nothing that she could do to stop Jiang Yuning.
Therefore, she suddenly realized that what her lawyer had just advised her to do was not entirely unreasonable. The most important thing right now was to appease Jiang Yuning and ask her to consider withdrawing the case.
In order to protect her own self-interest, Fu Yahui sorted out her own emotions and calmed herself down before she made a phone call to Jiang Yuning.
At this time, Jiang Yuning had already returned to the villa and she was planning to take a nap when she received the incoming call from Fu Yahui. She answered the call because she had already expected that Fu Yahui would call her.
&x201C;Hey, Yuning&x2026;I am your mother.&x201D;
&x201C;I know. What do you want?&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied coldly.
&x201C;Yuning, how could you have the heart to file a case against your own biological mother? I have already prepared everything that you requested for. Why don&x2019;t you withdraw the case and come over to the mountain villa later to sign the share transfer document? I will transfer an additional 5% of shares over to you. Would that be okay with you? Let&x2019;s not make a big issue out of this. You know that both Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi are already trying to get their hands on Dongheng Enterprise.&x201D;
&x201C;You want me to withdraw my case?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she stared at her own fingers. &x201C;I do not want to withdraw the case that I have filed against you. I have already told you the terms of our agreement very clearly during our last conversation over the phone. You are the one who did not fulfill the terms of the contract.&x201D;
&x201C;No, Yuning. This is a big amount and mom needed some time to deal with the share transfer. Can you trust me and give me one last chance? If I do not fulfill my part of the bargain, you can go to the police station and report me then.&x201D;
&x201C;I am too lazy to do that,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied indifferently.
&x201C;It will be no trouble at all, Yuning. I will come and pick you up right now. You are my precious biological daughter. When I grow older, everything that I have will go to you eventually. Yuning, please do not push me to a dead end, okay?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked in a very gentle voice as she tried to persuade Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;Not all mistakes allow you the opportunity to correct yourself, and sometimes there is no turning back after you have chosen your own path. Mom, I do not want the shares or your money. I want the police to deal with you.&x201D;
&x201C;Have you ever intended to let me off the hook, even if I did give you the eight hundred million yuan as promised?&x201D; Fu Yahui asked anxiously.
&x201C;You are finally smart again, Miss Fu,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed out loud. &x201C;No, I have never intended to let you off.&x201D;
&x201C;I am your biological mother and you actually want to send me to prison? Jiang Yuning, are you still human?&x201D;
&x201C;No. That is why I am actually pretty excited to see what Huo Zhendong and Huo Yuxi would do to take everything that you have right now. After this conversation, I will not answer any of your calls. I will let my lawyer and the police handle everything for me, while I simply sit back and see what happens to you in the end!&x201D; Jiang Yuning said ruthlessly and indifferently. &x201C;Goodbye!&x201D;
