Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The sea breeze was blowing strongly in the middle of the night.
All the lights in the villa was turned off at this time, but Lu Jingzhi suddenly turned on the bedside lamp when he received notifications on his cell phone.
However, when he turned around and saw Jiang Yuning who was sleeping soundly under the quilt, he quickly took his cell phone and stepped into the bathroom as not want to wake her up.
&x201C;Get me more information on the man who left in the black car. I want more details.&x201D;
Although he could not see the face of the man who had left in the black car, the stature and body of the man was indeed similar to that of Jiang Yuning&x2019;s father.
He did not want to tell Jiang Yuning anything yet because he did not want her to be disappointed.
He could only hope that Secretary Ho would get back to him with good news.
At this time, Fu Yahui was still being interrogated in the interrogation room equipped with glaring energy saving lights.
The police officer brought Huo Zhendong&x2019;s testimony and statement along with them before placing it on the table in front of Fu Yahui. The police officer glared coldly at Fu Yahui as he said, &x201C;Look here. This is your husband&x2019;s statement against you.&x201D;
Fu Yahui continued keeping her eyes shut because she did not want to see anything that she should not be seeing. She was afraid that it would cause her own psychological defence to collapse.
&x201C;Your husband said that both of you met at a cocktail party that was held abroad five years ago. He said that you took the initiative to pursue him and profess your love to him. He also said that you invited him to start a business with you with the seven billion yuan that you had inherited from your late husband.&x201D;
&x201C;He told us that he did not know about the origins of your money, nor did not even know that your real name was Fu Yahui until recently. He said that if he had known about all of these, he would have definitely reported it to the police.&x201D;
Fu Yahui clenched her fists tightly but she smacked her lips tightly together, still refusing to say anything.
&x201C;Alright then, since you refuse to cooperate or say anything, you can continue sitting here the entire night because I cannot let you leave anyway. As for your husband, there is nothing that we can do to him based on his statement and our investigation. He can easily file for a divorce, remarry, and start a new life without you while you rot in prison.&x201D;
After speaking, the police officer continued reading his newspaper.
Fu Yahui was very upset and heartbroken after listening to what the police officer had just said. She felt that it was even more unfair when she thought about how Huo Zhendong could just remarry and start a new life while she was the one who had to pay the price for everything.
Another two hours quickly passed in the blink of an eye and at this time, Fu Yahui was already mentally and physically exhausted. She was also starving as she had not eaten anything since she was detained. There were many times when she thought of giving her statement to the police officer, but she would hold back in the end because she refused to admit defeat. However, Fu Yahui could no longer hold on once it reached four o&x2019;clock in the morning. At this time, the police officer who had been trying to interrogate her the entire night had already finished reading his newspaper and magazines, and was getting ready to change shifts with another police officer.
&x201C;If you give me your statement now, I can still report that you have cooperated with the police in their investigations. However, if you continue to do this and refuse to cooperate, then you will lose all the privileges that you would have gotten if you had chosen to give your full cooperation. I can tell you that according to the law, you would probably be sentenced to a minimum of fifteen years in prison.&x201D; After speaking, the police officer picked up his newspaper and magazines and turned around to walk out of the interrogation room.
At this time, Fu Yahui suddenly opened her eyes and stopped the police officer. &x201C;I can cooperate with you, but there is someone that I would like to see.&x201D;
&x201C;You have no right to make any requests and you are not allowed to see anyone now because you are a criminal suspect.&x201D; The police officer turned down Fu Yahui&x2019;s request immediately. &x201C;It is completely up to you whether you want to speak up or not.&x201D;
&x201C;Huo Zhendong was my elementary school mate,&x201D; Fu Yahui finally told the police officer. &x201C;Who says that we had met only five years ago? That is ridiculous!&x201D;
The police officer who had been trying to interrogate her smirked when he saw that Fu Yahui was finally willing to speak up.
He sat down on the chair across her again before saying, &x201C;Go ahead and tell me your side of the story.&x201D;
&x201C;The thing that I regret the most in this life is the fact that I had fallen for Huo Zhendong&x2019;s trap. I had a wonderful family and everything was going perfectly for me and my family. However, this demon appeared and started to tempt me and frame me, before he eventually forced me to abandon my own family to be with him. I am only in this state right now because of him!&x201D; Fu Yahui said to the police officer.
The interrogation lasted for more than two hours and when the police officer eventually left the interrogation room, the sun was already shining brightly outside.
Although Fu Yahui told the police officer everything that had happened and everything the Huo Zhendong had planned and participated in, she had no evidence to prove it.
The only thing that the police officer could do was to arrest Huo Zhendong and bring him to the police station for interrogation on the suspicion of murder.
During her interrogation, Fu Yahui told the police officer that Jiang Zhitong&x2019;s car accident was in fact planned by Huo Zhendong. If this turned out to be true, then Huo Zhendong&x2019;s crime of homicide would definitely be of a more serious nature in comparison to Fu Yahui&x2019;s crime.
This was murder!
The Jiang family, especially Jiang Yuning, was really very pitiful.
Early the next morning, Lu Jingzhi received a phone call from Lawyer Zou, informing him that Fu Yahui had already given her confession last night. However, there were some things that he did not know if he should directly tell Jiang Yuning because it would be so cruel to her.
After listening to Lawyer Zou, Lu Jingzhi remained silent as he contemplated the matter.
After a short while, he broke the silence and told Lawyer Zou, &x201C;Thank you for the hard work. I will personally inform her about this matter.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then. I hope that Miss Jiang will not be too upset when she hears the news.&x201D;
After hanging up the phone, Lu Jingzhi turned around and looked at Jiang Yuning who was still fast asleep under the comfy quilt. He walked over to her slowly and then pulled her up from under the quilt as he hugged her in his arms.
Jiang Yuning was confused as she was woken up so suddenly. She just stared blankly at Lu Jingzhi as she asked, &x201C;Second brother, what happened?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi did not say anything but he continued hugging her tightly in his arms before he said, &x201C;Why do you make me worry about you all the time?&x201D;
&x201C;What did I do this time?&x201D;
&x201C;Fu Yahui confessed everything last night&x2026;including the matter involving your father&x2019;s car accident.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi spoke in a very gentle tone as he slowly released Jiang Yuning from his embrace.
Jiang Yuning was stunned for a moment but she quickly regained her composure as she faked a smile and said, &x201C;I had already guessed it a long time ago. Second brother, you do not have to worry about me.&x201D;
&x201C;Huo Zhendong and Fu Yahui attended the same primary school. Six years ago, they reunited at an alumni gathering. Huo Zhendong started to tempt your mother and lured her into committing an unforgivable crime. Your father&x2019;s car accident was planned by both of them and the perpetrator of the crime was Huo Zhendong himself.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning laughed as soon as she listened to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s words. &x201C;She destroyed the entire Jiang family just because of a heartless man like him.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi stood in front of Jiang Yuning as he pressed her forehead against his stomach and started to comfort her, &x201C;Don&x2019;t think too much about it.&x201D;
&x201C;I won&x2019;t,&x201D; Jiang replied immediately. &x201C;I just think that it is so unfair to my father.&x201D;
&x201C;The police had already sent people to arrest Huo Zhendong for interrogation, but it would not be easy to get him to confess and plead guilty to the crime. You can be rest assured that no matter what happens, I will not let him run away, okay?&x201D;
&x201C;I trust you and I promise that I will not think about it anymore,&x201D; Jiang Yuning assured Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;If I feel upset after you head to work, I will watch your video again and again to make myself feel better.&x201D;
After Lu Jingzhi finished speaking, he held Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face in his hands as he kissed her gently on the lips before he left the bedroom.
Before he left the villa, he told Sister Liang to pay special attention to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s emotions today and to call him immediately should she realize that there was something wrong with Jiang Yuning.
After Lu Jingzhi left, Jiang Yuning sat on the bed in a daze. She would not be human if she did not feel upset after receiving that sort of news about her father.
However, she knew that it was pointless to feel upset and grief over things that she could no longer change. Therefore, she decided to give Ku Jie a call to discuss the recording of her third short video instead.
The two scumbags would not have a good ending! She would wait patiently!
