"Will you even be able to look at Jiamu, who once saved your life? In all these years, he has treated you so well, have you forgotten? Do you even have a heart!"
Lu Jinnian, who had remained rather quiet all this time, didn't wait for Han Ruchu to finish what she had to say. He suddenly, asked her mockingly, "Mrs. Han, was this all you wanted to say?"
Before she could speak, someone else had said it all... In that moment, Han Ruchu kept her silence on the phone.
This time, Lu Jinnian, didn't remain quiet like Han Ruchu. Instead, he continued to speak in a calm voice, but there was a pressing tone in his voice. "I can tell Xu Jiamu everything I did with a clear conscience! What about you? Mrs. Han, could you do the same? As a mother, could you honestly say that you've done things with a clear conscience?"
"What a joke! You stole what belongs to Jiamu. You're here talking to me about having a clear conscience, but don't you forget you're an illegitimate child that should have never been born onto this earth! You mother was a shameful mistress. As Jiamu's birth mother, how could I have a guilty conscience?"
Even if Lu Jinnian one day stole Xu Enterprise after she painstakingly built it up for almost thirty years, Han Ruchu would still talk with the same confidence in her tone. She continued to speak ill of Lu Jinnian and his mother. "Let me tell you, even if Xu Enterprise becomes yours, you still can't change the fact that you're an illegitimate child. Nor can you change the fact that your mother was a prost.i.tute!"
Lu Jinnian's brows flashed with a hint of malevolence. He tightened his grasp on his phone and said, "Yes. That's right. My mother was a prost.i.tute. My mother was a mistress who gave birth to me, but she received her just rewards. I've also received mine, but even if my mother was lackl.u.s.ter, in my eyes, as her son, she was still a good mother, a great mother. Better than a murderer like yourself!"
In that moment, Han Ruchu's confidence was clearly shaken. "What do you mean by that?"
Lu Jinnian had no intention of letting Han Ruchu have a single word in, asking rhetorically, "I wonder, if Jiamu knew that his own mother's hands were so stained with blood, they didn't even show mercy to a two month old baby... Just with what kind of eyes do you think he would look at this kind of mother ?"
Han Ruchu was somewhat clever. With Lu Jinnian's first sentence, she could already guess what he meant. Now, under Lu Jinnian's questioning, she instantly understood. "So you knew."
"Yes, of course I knew. Qiao Anhao's miscarriage was all thanks to your sleeping pills in her swallow's nest. Mrs. Han, you made such careful preparations, but what a shame, you slipped up and revealed a flaw in your plan."
"When did you find out?" asked Han Ruchu.
Lu Jinnian didn't say a word.
After a while, Han Ruchu looked as though she had realized something and said, "So, the only reason why my several dozen billion investment got sc.r.a.pped was because you were scheming behind it all? Was it also you who added fuel to the fire when Xu enterprises stocks fell? Your purpose for all this was to devour the Xu enterprise and leave Wanli and me with nothing! Am I right?"
