Chapter 912: Interrogate Xia Xinghe

No matter how strong of a front she put on, she worried about him.
The situation continued to decline. Over the following two days, a few died from the disease!
Two of them were foreigners, one from Country W and another from Country C. Like Hwa Xia, both of these countries were major world powers. Most of the participants and audience had come from these two countries. Therefore, statistically speaking, the greatest number of foreigners infected came from these two countries.
The sudden death of their two citizens enraged the embassies from Country W and Country C. They demanded an explanation from Hwa Xia and that the doctors treated their countrymen first, or else they would raise an international crisis.
In other words, these two countries took advantage of the fact that Hwa Xia's president was sick to raise hell. Suddenly, Hwa Xia was involved in an international diplomatic crisis. Every top official from Hwa Xia was busy dealing with this.
The United Nations treated this as the top priority. Since Tong Liang was there and she was a native of Hwa Xia, she naturally became the leader overseeing the case. The first thing she did when the death was announced was to summon Xinghe.
Xinghe cooperated. In the large meeting room, seven leaders sat facing Xinghe with Tong Liang as the lead; this had the appearance of a tribunal judging Xinghe rather than a casual interview.
However, Xinghe faced them with full poise and composure.
Tong Liang scanned the length of her frame and asked softly, "Xia Xinghe, do you know why you have been summoned?"
"I don't," Xinghe answered in a similarly nonchalant tone.
Tong Liang told her directly. "It is because we suspect that you are related to this virus outbreak and that is why you are now currently under investigation."
"Related to me?" Xinghe raised her brow in interest, but her tone was still as chill as ever. Even though she had not had a good night sleep in a long while, it did not affect her composure; she was as reserved and unreadable as the surface of a deep lake.
"That's right," Tong Yan said severely, "the tragedy only occurred because you suddenly decided to organize this weird academic competition. The timing of the outbreak is too curious, and there were no earlier symptoms, so we suspect this was your evil plot all along!"
Xinghe suddenly laughed. "Where is the proof?"
She was unfazed by the sudden accusation, after all, this was not the first time she had been unlawfully framed.
Tong Liang continued the offensive. "There is no such thing as too many coincidences. The way this series of events has happened is more enough to validate our suspicions. Admit your crimes. Is it because of resentment and you want to take revenge on human society?"
"Take revenge on human society?" Xinghe's brow was raised even higher.
"That's right." Tong Liang smirked smugly. "You and your friends are best pals with the criminals from the moon, so it is not illogical to see that you all have been influenced by them. Therefore, your group plan to mimic their plot to take revenge on human society. After all, you were utterly furious when your friends were taken away. You even said that you would do anything to save them. You released this virus to ruin the world so that you would have the opening you needed to save them. Alas, your scheme has been exposed by me!"
Xinghe really wanted to laugh. This Tong Liang sure had a vivid imagination. She managed to string these isolated incidents together and even lent some validity to it. However, this was not the first time Xinghe had come face to face with conceited b*tches who thought too much of themselves.
"Miss Tong, it is such a shame that you are not a screen writer because I am sure your drama will sell."
"Xia Xinghe!" Tong Liang issued in a strict voice. "Don't try to wiggle your way out of this, do you dare say you don't want to save those criminals? Do you dare admit you don't share a good relationship with them?"
