Gu Yu, who was seated beside Xu Weilai, naturally caught a glimpse of her screen as well and stared at her phone fixedly with his jet black eyes. Just when Xu Weilai was still hesitating about whether she should answer the call, he’d decided on her behalf and advised, “Answer her call. Let’s see what she has to say.”
Although Yun Rou probably wouldn’t say anything nice, he felt that Xu Weilai should still answer the call to see if she could get anything out of it.
Xu Weilai understood his intentions and, after inhaling a breath of air, slowly slid her fingers across the screen to accept the call. She then put Yun Rou on the speaker.
Yun Rou’s gentle voice could be heard and she was obviously taking great joy in Xu Weilai’s misfortune. “Xu Weilai, how does it feel to be betrayed by your most trusted friend? Do you feel like you’re being ripped to pieces?” she ridiculed.
Xu Weilai pursed her lips and remained silent.
However, Yun Rou wasn’t bothered by her reaction and giggled. The anger that she had been accumulated throughout this period of time instantly disappeared. She began to gloat and provocate Xu Weilai even more, “Xu Weilai, to think that you actually wanted to accuse and sue me for plotting to kill you when it was actually your friend who did it. Aren’t you being a joke? Xiao Chun has been by your side for many years and yet you were so foolish that you were completely clueless about whether she’s genuinely sincere towards you or not. You placed your faith in the wrong person and now that I think about it, I feel sorry for you.”
“It’s just like how I was to Yu. I loved him so much and everything that I’ve done was for his sake. Yet he could be so heartless towards me because of you. He pushed me into the pits of hell with his own hands. Do you know how terrible and depressed I felt?”
Her voice was deep and extremely restrained, but in the next instant, she assumed her lighthearted tone of voice and resumed, “Fortunately, you’re in the same situation as me now and it makes me really happy.”
“Oh, right, are you visiting Xiao Chun now? You’re still not giving up, aren’t you?”
Yun Rou laughed again and this time, she sounded as sinister as the devil himself and it inevitably sent chills down one’s spine.
Xu Weilai clenched her fists while Assistant Lin, who was seated in the driver’s seat, trembled and goosebumps appeared all over his body. Only Gu Yu remained unaffected.
“It seems like we’re in the same boat. Just a reminder, Xiao Chun never had any feelings towards you at all. She never considered you as her friend and was only using her status as your best friend to trick you into trusting her so that it’s easier for her to do terrible things to you. It’s unfortunate that you’ve been kept in the dark all along. Hahaha…”
After saying this, Yun Rou hung up and only the beeping tone could be heard.
Assistant Lin rubbed the goosebumps on his arm and was the first to break the silence. “Oh my god, Yun Rou might be able to make a comeback and make it big if she were to star in a horror movie. She’s so terrifying!” he complained.
Xu Weilai’s eyes flashed a few times and it was hard to read her expression.
“It seems like Yun Rou called because she’s aware that I’ll confront Xiao Chun. She probably wants to hurt my feelings and also leak the fact that Xiao Chun had been harboring evil intentions towards me all along,” Xu Weilai thought.
Even though she doesn’t quite believe what Yun Rou had said, but judging from how confident she sounded, Xu Weilai felt sure that she must have gotten hold of some sort of evidence.
“Xiao Chun’s willing to shoulder the blame for her and if I were to ask her for the reason, she might not necessarily tell me the truth. Right now, I’m missing something that could make Xiao Chun tell me the truth. I also need something that I could use to persuade her to testify against Yun Rou,” she reasoned.
Xu Weilai knew that she wasn’t being biased towards Xiao Chun. After being friends for many years, she simply found it hard to believe that she could be so wrong about her friend.
She carefully recalled the last thing that Yun Rou said earlier on and felt certain clear that there was a hidden meaning behind it. She narrowed her jet black eyes and, after pondering for a moment, came to a sudden realisation.
