Sigh. She took a deep breath and said, “First Uncle, if grandmother was still around, would the Yan family still be as harmonious as before? And full of warmth?”
It startled Yan Weiye. He looked at Xuxu with a look of bewilderment. “Xuxu, what do you mean?”
It seemed that First Uncle was still unaware that Second Brother was the cause of it. He must have been kept in the dark.
Xuxu deliberated for a moment before saying, “First Uncle, aren’t you aware that Second Brother planned the incident at the Coastal County?”
She felt that she ought to let him know. Even though it was his son who had committed such wrongdoing, he should not shirk his responsibilities, too.
Flourish & Prosper was the heartbeat of the Yan family’s forefathers. Even grandmother had devoted all her efforts into it.
It astonished Yan Weiye. He stretched his hand to grab Xuxu by her arm and opened his eyes wide. “Xuxu, what are you talking about?”
In a fit of agitation, he exerted too much strength that his nails almost dug into Xuxu’s flesh. Xuxu knitted her eyebrows and shrieked in pain.
Yan Weiye finally realized it and let go of his hand. He awkwardly apologized at his loss of self- control. “I’m sorry. First uncle was too agitated.”
He continued speaking with eyes wide opened. “But how could Runan have…?”
Xuxu knew that Yan Weiye would not believe it or accept the truth right away. When she first discovered Yan Runan’s name on Wang Bin’s call records, and when Yan Rusheng didn’t deny her accusation, she also found it hard to believe and come to terms with it.
He was Second Brother Yan, the flesh and blood grandson of the Yan family. His family has a 50% share in Flourish & Prosper.
What would he gain for doing such a thing?
She said, “Ah Sheng kept it from everyone, including me. He suppressed everything single handedly because he wanted to give Second brother some time to think through his next steps.”
“No, Xuxu. How could this be possible?” Yan Weiye shook his head in disbelief. “How could Runan have done such a thing? He had never worked in Flourish & Prosper before and entered the Jiang Corporation upon his graduation.”
He felt that his son had no reason to hurt Flourish & Prosper.
Xuxu sighed. “Yes, I also can’t understand why. But this is the truth.”
She also wished that it wasn’t true, that it was a dream. Or perhaps, all pieces of evidence were falsified.
But she was just deluding herself.
Yan Weiye still couldn’t come to terms with it. “Are there any proofs?”
“Ah Sheng should have the concrete evidences.” Xuxu looked at Yan Weiye with a solemn look in her face. “Why don’t you go back home and ask Second Brother why he did it?”
Yan Weiye still shook his head in disbelief. “It’s impossible. I’ll go back and question Runan. He couldn’t have done this, and there’s no reason for him to.”
He seemed to be in emotional distress, and he took out his cellphone to make a call as he walked towards the staircase.
Xuxu watched Yan Weiye as he descended the stairs. He then looked down at the black car that was parked below. Her expression turned serious and cold.
In one’s lifetime, some could still start afresh after committing mistakes.
However, some mistakes could cost innocent lives, and such people don’t deserve to be forgiven!
In the afternoon, Yan Rusheng was released from the police station.
The three under-aged girls also admitted that they lied. After someone had sexually assaulted them and had their naked photos taken, they were threatened to frame Yan Rusheng.
When they were sent to his room, Yan Rusheng was already dead drunk and non-responsive.
