Chapter 115: Why Should We Believe Whatever You Say?
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
&x201C;Are you so certain that I do not have any evidence against you?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Fu Yahui. &x201C;If I know about Li Yang and Duan Honghong, that would mean that I know more than you think I do about exactly what happened five years ago. I really did not want things to turn out this way because I was taught well and I was educated well growing up, but you are not giving me the chance to be nice to you, Miss Fu. That is why I am seated here today, because this is the only thing that I can do.&x201D;
&x201C;I know that your lawyer has been actively trying to destroy all the evidence linking you to the crime, but I also want you to know that I have more than enough evidence to incriminate you for what you had done in the past. I have not brought out all the evidence because I want to give you one last chance, on account of our relationship as mother and daughter. Mom, just admit that you did it. Just admit it.&x201D;
&x201C;Are you kidding right now, Yuning? How many times do you want me to repeat myself? I did not do anything that you are accusing me of doing. I am innocent!&x201D; Fu Yahui replied immediately. &x201C;I will now explain how I obtained the seven billion yuan to everyone.&x201D;
After speaking, Fu Yahui took out a document and placed it on top of the table. It was the power of attorney that she had forged. She then said, &x201C;I went to the United States, intending to borrow some money to repay the debts owed by the Jiang family. When I was in the United States, I met an elderly Chinese businessman, Mr. Chen Dongqiang. He subsequently commissioned the seven billion yuan to me to allow me to invest in Dongheng Enterprise. Therefore, the real owner of Dongheng Enterprise is not me, but Mr. Chen Dongqiang. Jiang Yuning, you have misunderstood me.&x201D;
Fu Yahui placed her hand on the power of attorney before questioning Jiang Yuning: &x201C;This is where I got the seven billion yuan from. The money did not come from the Jiang family, because the Jiang family was already bankrupt then!&x201D;
Jiang Yuning was still very calm and there was no change in her expression at all.
&x201C;Well, this Mr. Chen that you speak of seems to be a very good person, but what is his relationship with you? Why would he give you such a huge sum of money just so you can start a company with your lover?&x201D;
&x201C;That is none of your business. This is where the seven billion yuan came from and this is the document proving that what I had just said is true. The fact is that I have evidence and you have none,&x201D; Fu Yahui immediately defended herself as she replied to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s question.
&x201C;As a mother, I really do not want to see my daughter taking the wrong path in life, but I can no longer condone this sort of behavior. Jiang Yuning, I want to disown you as my daughter.&x201D;
&x201C;Is that so? Is the Mr. Chen Dongqiang that you are speaking of the hotel king?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Fu Yahui immediately.
&x201C;Yes, that is right.&x201D;
&x201C;So, you are saying that you had met up with him and that you have a good relationship with him?&x201D; Jiang Yuning continued questioning Fu Yahui.
&x201C;Otherwise, how would I have been able to get such strong financial support from him?&x201D; Fu Yahui replied arrogantly.
Jiang Yuning did not refute Fu Yahui&x2019;s statement but simply chuckled before she said, &x201C;Mr. Chen Dongqiang died of a stroke fifteen years ago. The hotel king right now is actually his daughter, Chen Yuan.&x201D;
Fu Yahui was stunned for a moment when she heard what Jiang Yuning had just said, but she was very quick to defend herself. &x201C;I have a very close relationship with his daughter too.&x201D;
&x201C;Is that so? Then, did you know that Chen Yuan committed suicide seven years ago after an argument with her husband? Miss Fu, I know that your lawyer is trying very hard to help you, but it is better for you if you stop lying so much. I am afraid that if you keep lying, there will be no turning back for you in future. You said that Mr. Chen entrusted the seven billion yuan to you. So, does that mean that you will return the money to any of his descendants if they were to come and ask you for it? Is that right?&x201D;
Fu Yahui could not stop her hands from shaking.
However, she could not allow Jiang Yuning to expose her in public.
&x201C;I do not need to reveal my agreement with the Chen family to an outsider like you. I already know that the police will not be filing the case that you had reported because there is insufficient evidence. That only proves that you have tried to frame me!&x201D; Fu Yahui said as she glared at Jiang Yuning.
&x201C;How do you know that the police do not have sufficient evidence to file the case?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she stared at Fu Yahui. &x201C;Why should we believe whatever you say? You have already explained and said so much on stage today, but every statement made has been full of loopholes, with everything coming out of your mouth being lies. Do you really think that everyone here has no IQ at all?&x201D;
&x201C;Let me sum it up for you. You explained two matters to us today. Firstly, you emphasized that you did not abandon your own daughter and family to elope with another man. However, you cannot explain why you had left the family when your husband had only been missing for sixteen days, and you cannot explain why you cohabitated with another man merely two months after your husband&x2019;s disappearance.&x201D;
&x201C;Secondly, you insist that you did not run away with the Jiang family&x2019;s money and you made up a fake power of attorney document, insisting that a man named Chen Dongqiang entrusted the seven billion yuan to you. However, the surprising thing is that you do not even know about Mr. Chen&x2019;s family situation. If he really did entrust that money to you, how could you not know of his passing fifteen years ago?&x201D;
&x201C;Miss Fu, do you realize that this is the information age right now? The netizens can simply search on the internet or make their own investigations to verify anything that you have just said. Have you ever considered what the consequences would be if you kept lying?&x201D;
&x201C;I only have one thing to say. Show me your evidence,&x201D; Fu Yahui replied as she stared coldly at Jiang Yuning. &x201C;I cannot help it if the facts seem so absurd. If you cannot produce evidence that I had done what you are accusing me of, then I will get my lawyer to start a lawsuit against you for defamation as soon as we are done with this press conference. I need to teach you a lesson.&x201D;
&x201C;You still refuse to admit that you had taken away everything that belonged to the Jiang family?&x201D;
&x201C;Why would I admit it when I had not done it?&x201D; Fu Yahui sneered.
&x201C;So, does that mean that you will also refuse to admit that you had something to do with my father&x2019;s disappearance?&x201D;
Fu Yahui looked at Jiang Yuning with a shocked expression on her face. After a few seconds, she suddenly laughed out loud before saying, &x201C;Are you insane? Are you going to blame me for every misfortune that befalls the Jiang family?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning stared incredulously at Fu Yahui&x2019;s arrogant and despicable face before she finally laughed out loud.
At this time, the reporters and members of the media started whispering amongst themselves.
&x201C;Whose words do you believe in? It seems as though what both of them are saying makes sense.&x201D;
&x201C;However, the fact remains that Jiang Yuning is unable to come up with any evidence justifying her claims. Didn&x2019;t Ms. Ava showed us the power of attorney that Mr. Chen Dongqiang had given her? I doubt that she has the courage to fake that document. She would end up in prison for that!&x201D;
&x201C;I feel that Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words are not very credible too, although whatever she said sounds logical. Sometimes, the truth is absurd.&x201D;
&x201C;I think that there might be a problem with Jiang Yuning&x2019;s brain. Why would she have the courage to make a police report when she does not have any evidence on hand?&x201D;
After hearing the comments and criticisms of the audience, Fu Yahui knew that it was the perfect time to end the press conference because she had already achieved what she wanted. Therefore, she stood up and said, &x201C;Dear reporters, as you can all see, it is not that I do not want to give my daughter a chance but right now, I am really very disappointed in her. Even though I have already revealed the truth, she refuses to let me go and is still trying to frame me. I am very sad that I have no choice but to teach her a lesson the hard way.&x201D;
&x201C;I will contact my lawyer because I intend to sue Jiang Yuning for defamation and for trying to set me up. Everyone of you here today can be my witness that I have no other choice but to do this as I have given birth to a daughter who would do anything to get some money. I hope that she will be able to turn over a new leaf after getting the punishment that she deserves.&x201D;
At this time, a group of men dressed in their uniforms suddenly appeared at the entrance of the hall where the press conference was held.
The men stormed into the hall as they showed their credentials to everyone who was present in the hall.
Everyone thought that the police officers were here to arrest Jiang Yuning and they were all amazed that the police had acted so quickly.
However, to everyone&x2019;s surprise, the police officers went all the way to the front of the stage&x2026;
