The police officer, having completed the questioning, nodded at Mu Rulan and turned to leave.
Mu Rulan and Shu Min sat still without any intention of provoking a mother who was having a difficult time processing her daughter’s situation.
Hua Fang turned and said viciously, eyes still red and a vein popping out of her forehead, “You again! How come whenever our Yaya is near you something bad happens?! What sort of deep hatred do you have with our family, always giving us trouble?! What do you want from us for you to leave us alone?!”
“Mom!” Zhou Sulun did not expect that Hua Fang would turn to scold Mu Rulan. He let out a surprised shout and pulled at her.
Shu Min stretched out an arm to protect Mu Rulan, face cold and tone sarcastic as she said, “You don’t have the right to discipline others when you’re the one who failed to discipline your own child! Your daughter wanted to commit murder and yet you expected the president to stand there quietly and let her do it?”
“My Yaya is only fifteen! She’s fifteen and knows nothing. Can’t you people give her another chance?” Hua Fang cried desperately, unable to accept it at all. The fact that her own daughter was disabled was too much for her. None of this would have happened if not for Mu Rulan. It was all her fault!
Mu Rulan sat in her seat, staring calmly at Hua Fang, not even uttering a word in response, face expressionless.
Shu Min was amused by Hua Fang’s ridiculous statements. “Fifteen years is young? If that’s still young, our president is only sixteen. How shameless can you be!”
Hua Fang was shocked, glancing at Mu Rulan. Translated by The Novelst
That was right. This girl was only sixteen, it was just her achievements and reputation that were annoyingly dazzling, so much so that she couldn’t help but overlook her age and treat her like an adult…
Even so, after that comparison was brought to light, Hua Fang was even more annoyed. Why was this girl so beloved at her age, but her baby girl was bullied so harshly? Why did she keep her limbs, but her baby girl was disabled now?
By what right? All her Yaya did was act a little wayward and cocky, but had never caused large amounts of trouble. Only after she met this girl was it that roadblock after roadblock appeared! It was because Mu Rulan was a bad omen.
Hua Fang became angrier the more she thought, vessels in her forehead swelling as though they were going to pop. Her expression began to distort before a calming voice came indifferently into her ears.
“Minors between the ages of fourteen and sixteen who deliberately commit murder, cause intentional serious injuries to the point of death, rape, robbery, drug trafficking, arson, bombing and poisoning should be dealt with the full force of the law. Zhou Yaya repeatedly committed crimes again and again and refused to change. The police have filed and requested a public prosecution of Yaya in court.”
The man who was slowly walking over to them was wearing a simple shirt as usual, calm gaez filled with indifference piercing through the atmosphere.
Mu Rulan looked at him and a soft and warm smile filled her face. She called him gently, “Qianren.”
“What did you say?!” Hua Fang shouted furiously at Mo Qianren.
She was shocked, angry and doubtful. “Sue my daughter? What right do they have to do that? My daughter is still lying inside and was just declared disabled, but you want to sue her? Where’s your conscience? By what right?!” With Mayor Zhou’s imprisonment, the company’s looming bankruptcy and now this happening to her daughter, she couldn’t hold it in.
Zhou Sulun did not expect that the law would become involved. He looked at Mo Qianren with surprise, struggling to form words, “You’re… you’re kidding, right?”
Mo Qianren looked over at him and said calmly, “Do I look like I’m joking?” His expression and tone conveyed it clearly: Do I look like I would joke with stupid monkeys like you guys?
Feeling the mockery, Zhou Sulun’s expression changed. He looked at Mo Qianren once and then looked away, not daring to speak further.
“And by what right?” Mo Qianren glanced over to Hua Fang, who was a mess, and said expressionlessly, “Maybe you should thank Mu Rulan. If not for her, Zhou Yaya would already have been destroyed in court alongside Jin Biaohu.”
The crimes that Jin Biaohu and Zhou Yaya could be considered legitimate cases. If it wasn’t for Mu Rulan cancelling the lawsuit, they would not have been released so easily.
But Zhou Yaya still didn’t learn her lesson and tried to kill Mu Rulan again. If she was released again, that would not be the right thing to do.
Though Hua Fang was desperately shouting, tearful, and causing trouble, refusing to agree to send Zhou Yaya to the juvenile detention center, the result would not change in the end.
Several people left the hospital. Shu Min glanced at Mo Qianren and let Mu Rulan know she would be returning to school first to deal with the fallout of this incident and left.
Mu Rulan watched as Shu Min’s car faded from view, then looked at the man beside her. Her lashes curled into the shape of a crescent moon and said, “Were you thinking about me again, Qianren?”
As he was about to say something, he ended up staring at her instead.
The man’s pale hands left his pocket and grabbed the naughty strands of hair sticking on his shirt. But the static electricity stuck stubbornly to his chest, making his ears turn a bit red.
Mu Rulan blinked innocently, peeking at the strands in his hand, then shifted her eyes to look at his glowing ears. She smirked, “Qianren? Are you thinking dirty thoughts?”
A psycho was truly shameless! Translated by The Novelst
“Messy,” Mo Qianren said, placing the strands in Mu Rulan’s hands. He didn’t know if he was talking about the hair or his own heart.
“Is it better to tie my hair up after all?” Mu Rulan combed her hair back.
Considering her extremely long hair, it would fly around casually and might fly onto strangers who might have bacteria and such on them. Mo Qianren nodded, “It’s better to tie it up.”
“Is that so?” Mu Rulan grabbed her hair to keep it still in the wind. “But it’s very troublesome. Maybe it’s better that I just cut it short.”
