“Mn?” Mu Rulan lifted her gaze to Ke Wanqing.
She usually went to Hong Kong every year to celebrate Chinese New Year. That was because her grandfather’s birthday was also within that period. In the past, Ke Wanqing had always been very supportive of her going there. Why was she suddenly deciding not to let her go?
“I’ll bring you with me to travel around the capital, since the Chinese New Year is just eating reunion dinner with the family.”
Ke Wanqing felt that Mo Qianren really had no future at all. She wouldn’t allow Mu Rulan to be with that kind of man. Hence, she needed to quickly bring Mu Rulan to the capital and bring her along to the Huo Family. The boys of the family were really children of good fortune that would make her truly proud.
“Let’s talk again when the time comes,” Mu Rulan said, looking at her watch. “I’ll be leaving first, I’m worried that Qing Qing might look for me…”
Bang! The cup in Ke Wanqing was placed heavily on the table. Her face was dark. “You dare to get along with that b*tch!”
Mu Rulan felt a little helpless. “Mother, it’s not that I want to get along with her, but the problem is that she’s still a student at Liu Silan.”
As the president of the student council, how could she ignore a student like that?
Now that Mu Rulan had mentioned it, it reminded Ke Wanqing of how much money and effort she had initially put in only to get Bai Suqing to enter Liu Silan High School to study. Suddenly she felt unworthy and furious – how stupid she had been in the past that she had been fooled so badly, wasting so much money on her?
Thinking of that, Ke Wanqing said, gloomily, “Do you think she still deserves to stay there? Look at her, a mistress at such a young age! And most of all, she’s already been kicked from the Mu Family. There’s no position nor money for her to pay school fees. No need to wait for her to drop out – just kick her out!”
“Mother…” Translated by The Novelst
“I’ll call the director myself!”
Oh dear, my little sister. What are you doing right now? Could it be that you’re hiding somewhere at a corner using a knife to poke a doll with her name carved in it? Then your expression must be beautifully twisted…
But that’s not enough, ya. It’s far from enough. That’s why you should look forward to the future. Your sister will definitely make you show yourself in the most beautiful place and then… freeze you there forever, ya! Hehehe…
The atmosphere in the Zhou Family was like the gloomy sky outside.
Mayor Zhou and Hua Fang’s faces were extremely ugly. None of them would have believed that despite being relieved yesterday by Mu Zhenyang’s promises, today they had received news that Mu Zhenyang had been seduced by the foster child and was caught red-handed, so he was kicked out of the family.
Ha?! What was the meaning of that? They treated them so well yesterday, even gifting away valuables, and in the end it all went down the drain?!
The husband and wife pair nearly fainted in anger!
Madam Jin had a face full of tears. “Wuwu… My daughter is gone and I only have this son left. If he’s gone too, then what’s the point of me continuing to live…”
Although Hua Fang’s expression doesn’t seem too well, she couldn’t help but be sarcastic. “Your son is only going to jail. It’s not like he’s going to be executed.”
“Alright, alright.” Mayor Zhou stood and stopped their argument, sighing, “The two children won’t be sentenced to death, but they can’t avoid jail time. My daughter is only fifteen. She’s not the prime culprit and might even go to juvie! But your son is already an adult, nearly killed two people. If they charge him for intentional homicide, the minimum sentence he would get is ten years to life imprisonment!”
Being told this by Mayor Zhou, Madam Jin wailed, “My poor son! Wuwuwuwu… God is unfair. It was obvious that the one in the wrong is that wicked Mu Rulan. If she hadn’t chased after him nothing would have happened wuwuwu…”
Both Mayor Zhou and his wife furrowed their brows slightly.
Jin Boxiong knew they were being impolite. It was impossible for him to think of a good plan, which was why he had come to Mayor Zhou and Hua Fang.
“Then what should we do now? Even though your daughter is young and won’t be sentenced too heavily, I believe you wouldn’t want to see her suffer, right?”
Mayor Zhou didn’t respond to his question, saying, “I remember that your son kept saying that Mu Rulan killed his two accomplices, saying that she was mentally ill, a psycho.”
Jin Boxiong was stunned for a moment before nodding.
That was true, but the problem was that the police had gathered evidence like utility knives and pens. Except for Jin Biaohu and Huang Maozai’s fingerprints, there wasn’t even a single clue that led to Mu Rulan!
“No matter how the evidence goes, you should go and ask the two families of the accomplices to prepare for an appeal.”
“We will charge Mu Rulan with homicide.” As long as Mu Rulan got a confirmed diagnosis that she was mentally ill, their lawyers would be able to find a way to confine her within a mental hospital.
As for Jin Biaohu and Zhou Yaya, they would probably be held in custody for a period of time but would be released promptly.
In an instant, it became silent. Translated by The Novelst
Even Hua Fang widened her eyes in disbelief, looking at Mayor Zhou, clearly hearing this plan for the first time. She quickly voiced her disapproval, “Dear!”
Charge her with homicide, and wanting to confirm whether or not she was a psycho? Did he know how big the risk was?
Mu Rulan was someone chosen by the country. It was impossible that the national sector would allow the case to turn so! Not only that, but if Mu Rulan had truly killed someone, her lawyer could argue that she was defending herself. It didn’t mean that she was abnormal or mentaly ill.
Most of all, there wasn’t even a single trace of her in the evidence. Who knows if there was more evidence that they weren’t aware of?
How could he speak such silly words? Without any evidence, it was impossible for them to sue Mu Rulan!
