Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
“Wen Shouyi went to meet her mother in advance?! And her mother beat her up?!”
Gu Nianzhi repeated He Zhichu’s words subconsciously and was extremely curious.
“Why did Qin Yaoguang refuse to reunite with her?!”
“If she wished to reunite, she would have done it long ago and Wen Dayou won’t be able to bring her home as an orphan.” He Zhichu scoffed, “I didn’t expect Wen Shouyi to have such a naive side.”
She didn’t know whether she was too narrow-minded or not, but she was getting more and more annoyed when anyone say something good about Wen Shouyi.
Although Wen Shouyi was her half-sister, Gu Nianzhi wasn’t able to be objective and be wise when she thought about what Wen Shouyi did to her.
Gu Nianzhi took a deep breath and said plainly, “Innocent? What misunderstanding does Major General He have for the word ‘innocent’? Since Qin Yaoguang didn’t recognize her, so she threw all the blame on Qin Yaoguang and ride the Old Master Qin’s coattails. How could such a person be innocent?”
He Zhichu could tell that Gu Nianzhi was unhappy, so he paused and explained awkwardly, “I mean, she still wants to reunion with her mother, which makes her seems unthoughtful.” Qin Yaoguang didn’t reunite with her for so many years, was it because she didn’t know that Wen Shouyi was her biological daughter? Qin Yaoguang clearly knew that and even asked Wen Dayou to adopt Wen Shouyi. It was clear that she didn’t consider Wen Shouyi as her biological daughter at all.”
Gu Nianzhi disagreed and retorted, “At most, it means that she didn’t think it through, that’s the IQ problem. Saying her is naive, it’s about personality problems. Wen Shouyi has no issue with her personality. She’s just as bad and bitchy as usual.”
Gu Nianzhi’s words were mean and sarcastic. It was obvious that she was extremely unsatisfied with Wen Shouyi.
He Zhichu was speechless for a long while. He thought of all the things that Wen Shouyi had done over the years, and couldn’t help feeling even more guilty towards Gu Nianzhi. He quickly said, “I was wrong. She’s not naive, she’s stupid and evil. Nianzhi, can you forgive me for my unintentional mistake?”
Gu Nianzhi was a little embarrassed by He Zhichu’s solemn apology.
She slowly sat down and leaned back on the sofa. She smiled and said, “I didn’t mean to blame you. I just wanted to emphasize my opinion on Wen Shouyi.”
He Zhichu comforted her nicely again.
Gu Nianzhi back to her senses and quietly changed the topic. “Major General He, do you mean Wen Shouyi did this because she gave up on Qin Yaoguang?”
Since Qin Yaoguang did not want to reunite with her, she had to find another way.
He Zhichu nodded. “Of course. Do you know what blame Wen Shouyi put on Qin Yaoguang?”
Gu Nianzhi thought for a moment and asked curiously,”… could it be that Qin Yaoguang was the one who used the infrasound weapon to hurt you?”
“More or less.”
“But that doesn’t make any sense.” Gu Nianzhi immediately said, “Qin Yaoguang was in custody during that time. How did she get the ability to ‘strategize an attack from a thousand miles away’? Wen Shouyi can be blamed, but whether she can be blamed it on Qin Yaoguang or not, this will depend on the cognitive ability of the Law Enforcement Officers.”
He Zhichu sighed, “Wen Shouyi came with well prepared. How could she not thought about this?” She took out the evidence to prove that all of this was planned before Qin Yaoguang was taken into custody. Later, when she was imprisoned in the detention center, she even treated this plan as a life-saving straw. She sent a message through the people who came to visit her and told them to carry out the plan.”
Gu Nianzhi was stunned for a moment but quickly recovered from his surprise. “She did found a good reason but she would have to betray a group of the internal management of the Qin’s Private Corporation, right?”
“Yes, this is a good opportunity to clear out the dissidents. All the Qin Yaoguang’s promoted subordinates, as well as those who only listened to Qin Yaoguang’s words and did not listen to her, were all sent to the detention center by her.” He Zhichu took a look at the street through the car window.
On the opposite side of the road, it was the headquarters of the Qin Corporation’s Private Hospital in the capital.
At this time, many police cars were parked outside the hospital. Managers of the company were being brought out of the hospital one by one with handcuffed.
He Zhichu did not interfere with the police matters, but this did not prevent him from coming over to “watch the show.”.
Gu Nianzhi sighed a few more times until she heard He Zhichu was talking to his subordinates and she hung up the phone.
She said to Huo Shaoheng ruefully, “You heard what I just said to Major General He, right?”
Huo Shaoheng nodded calmly. “I heard it. Qin Yaoguang refused to acknowledge Wen Shouyi, so Wen Shouyi gave up on Qin Yaoguang and became more ruthless than Qin. She directly put the blame on Qin Yaoguang for the felony.”
“That’s not all…”Gu Nianzhi said excitedly. “She killed three birds with one stone!”
“First, she took revenge on Qin Yaoguang for refusing to acknowledge her.”
“Second, she gets to ride Old Master Qin’s coattails.”
“Third, she took the opportunity to eliminate dissidents within the group. Anyone who only listened to Qin Yaoguang and didn’t listen to her was sent to the police.”
Huo Shaoheng’s expression became serious. “Did she actually do these?”
“How could it be fake news? Major General He personally admitted it, she was that powerful!” Although Gu Nianzhi extremely dislike Wen Shouyi, she had to admit that this girl’s vitality was really strong.
It was like the weeds which the wildfire would not burn all out and when the Spring breeze started to blow, they will all grow again.
“… But how did she blame the incident of infrasound weapon on Qin Yaoguang?” Huo Shaoheng was also a little confused. “Qin Yaoguang was already in custody at that time, right?”
“Yes, she was already in custody but Major General He told me that Wen Shouyi had evidence to prove that Qin Yaoguang had been planning this for a long time. Therefore, regardless of Qin Yaoguang was in custody or not, she will use this method to deal with He Zhichu and achieve her goal by controlling him. So that she can further control He zhichu’s father, the General He.”
Gu Nianzhi analyzed the situation for Huo Shaoheng and explained it in a clear and logical manner.
Huo Shaoheng was silent for a long time before he finally started to talk again. “With the evidence, it will be very difficult for Qin Yaoguang to turn the tables.”
“After Qin Yaoguang was detained, she refused to give up in order to get out and secretly communicated with her subordinates who came to visit her and carried out the plan. So, they wanted to perform the surgery on Old Master Qin and tried to get Qin Yaoguang to do it for him.”
“They knew the Major General He very well. They knew that he would be worried and would definitely come to watch her performing in the surgery. So they placed the infrasound weapon in the secret room in advance and aimed it at Major General He…”
Gu Nianzhi folded her arms around her neck as she leaned back on the sofa, she said ruefully, “If it weren’t for my father, Major General He would already be under Qin Yaoguang’s control, and General He might have remarried Qin Yaoguang by now…”
Huo Shaoheng couldn’t help but start to laugh. He rubbed Gu Nianzhi’s head. “What are you thinking about? You should be thinking about what you’re going to do when we go to court on Monday. Do you actually believe that Old Master Qin had nothing to do with this?”
“Of course he had something to do with it, but we don’t have enough evidence,” Gu Nianzhi shrugged. “Wen Shouyi was able to hand over all the evidence and push it all on Qin Yaoguang, which means that she had already reprocessed the evidence.”
“If the court accepts the evidence, then the Old Master Qin couldn’t do anything about it.”
“Then what are you going to do?” Huo Shaoheng was curious.
Even though he wasn’t as proficient in the laws as Gu Nianzhi and He Zhichu, he still knew about some fundamentals.
Gu Nianzhi thought about it and said, “The murder of Major General He with a subsonic weapon and the kidnapping of a minor by Qin Yaoguang are two different cases. They cannot be confused. The case that I’m going to court the next Monday is the same case that Qin Yaoguang kidnapped me eight years ago. I plan to dig deeper. For example, after she ordered someone to kidnap me, why did she send me to the airport? Which country was she heading to?”
“Also, what was her motive for kidnapping me?”
“You don’t believe that she kidnapped you to make room for her daughter, Wen Shouyi?” Huo Shaoheng asked with a smile. He picked out a piece of mango with a bamboo stick for Gu Nianzhi.
Gu Nianzhi ate the piece of mango and said, “Of course not. If she actually treated Wen Shouyi like a loving mother, she wouldn’t have been put Wen in the orphanage and wouldn’t refuse to reunite with her after publicized about it.”
“The second reason is on point.” Huo Shaoheng complimented her and stood up. “Then take your time to prepare. I’ll drop by the embassy and come back to cook dinner for you tonight.”
“Okay, come back earlier then!” Gu Nianzhi’s eyes were shone and none of the stars in the night sky were as bright as her eyes.
Huo Shaoheng couldn’t help himself and leaned over to kiss her on the lips before mumbling, “… Be hurry and finish up here. I want to take you home.”
Gu Nianzhi’s heart almost dropped for a few seconds before it pounded loudly.
Blood was rushing through her veins, and the gurgling sound filled her eardrums. Her vision got blur and she felt dizzy.
Going home, what a beautiful phrase. Could she able to wait till that day?
By the time Gu Nianzhi snapped out of her reverie, Huo Shaoheng had already left.
He drove to the Soviet embassy in the capital while he contacted Lu Yuan.
He had never taken the initiative to contact Lu Yuan, but this time, he couldn’t wait any longer.
Lu Yuan was free by then and he was reading a book in his hotel room.
Realizing that it was a call from Huo Shaoheng, he immediately picked it up and asked, “Have you found out who sold the land?”
Huo Shaoheng replied “Yeah” and quickly said, “I got it, the sellers of the Qin Huichang and his wife’s land are actually Qin Suwen’s parents.”
Lu Yuan was stunned. “Qin Suwen? He Zhichu’s mother? He Chengjian’s wife? ! Didn’t she passed away?”
“Yes, she passed away a long time ago.” Huo Shaoheng didn’t say much, “But the land originally belonged to Qin Suwen’s family. No one knows why she sold it.”
“Have you found out why they sold the land?” Lu Yuan felt complicated.
He knew that Qin Suwen was an orphan, so her parents were definitely dead. It would be hard to find out the reason.
Huo Shaoheng smiled wryly, “That’s too difficult. I heard that most of Qin Suwen’s family members left the country for a long time, leaving only their family in the country. After Qin Huichang and his wife died, Qin Suwen, who was underage during that time had no choice but to go to an orphanage.”
“What about their old friends? Qin Huichang and his wife didn’t have any relatives in the country. They didn’t even have any friends or colleagues?” Lu Yuan didn’t want to give up yet, he was trying to find out any possible clues.
“Even if they were willing to say anything. Those are friends and colleagues from decades ago, the court might not accept it,” Huo Shaoheng shook his head. “Because too much time has passed, it might have already passed the retroactive period. The memories of these people might not be reliable.”
“That’s true.”Lu Yuan nodded, but he did not give up. “I’ll look for people from back then to ask about Qin Baye’s family. There are more people who know them than Qin Huichang.”
Times flew. Just as Lu Yuan, Huo Shaoheng, and the others were anxiously investigating, Gu Nianzhi ushered in the time to appear in court once again.
This time, there were still people sitting behind her, but Qin Yaoguang was sitting alone. Not to mention the Qin family, relatives, and friends, even their legal team only had a fledgling lawyer sitting there, she looked especially lonely and pitiful.
Gu Nianzhi thought to herself, Wen Shouyi was really going all out. She wasn’t even willing to try and had completely given up on Qin Yaoguang.
However, Gu Nianzhi’s lips curled up slightly.
Without Wen Shouyi, who liked to play the side of the law, stirring up trouble here, she might have been able to get more information out of her.
In her heart, she still thought Wen Shouyi’s decision to give up on Qin Yaoguang was very stupid.
Qin Yaoguang was irreplaceable to the Qin Corporation.
Even Wen Shouyi didn’t know the secrets in her heart.
Gu Nianzhi slowly stood up from the plaintiff’s stand and walked up to Qin Yaoguang to begin her first interrogation today.
Qin Yaoguang looked at Gu Nianzhi with a cold expression. She had no idea that Gu Nianzhi was going to force her into a dead end.
