Chapter 275: A stranger's call
Translator: eunimon_ Editor: Caron_
Li Qiao Hong seemed to have thought of something; her terrified eyes lit up as she stared at Zhao Da Yong. "Zhao Da Yong! Did you really do that to our daughter?"
Zhao Da Yong nearly fainted in anger when he heard her. "Have you lost your mind?! How could you believe what those people said?! Linlin's my daughter! Even if I scolded and beaten her when I was in a bad mood, I would never do something so despicable!"
"How would I know whether you did it or not? If you could even come up with that wicked idea of framing Han Xian Yu for sexually abusing our daughter, how can I be sure you're not lying to me now?! You're capable of anything!"
"You, crazy woman! You agreed with this idea too! Now you're putting all the blame on me!"
Zhao Da Yong's head was buzzing from this big fight with his wife. Just at that moment, his phone started ringing again.
Zhao Da Yong felt like he was going crazy. He picked up the phone and started howling at the person on the other line, "Get lost! Get away from me! I'll kill you if you call again!"
As he shouted, suddenly, a man's voice came through the receiver, "Mr. Zhao, you don't need to have such a bad temper. I'm here to help you."
Zhao Da Yong went silent and replied cautiously, "Who are you?"
If somebody volunteered to help him before, he would've believed them. But now, how could anyone want to help him?
"Who I am isn't important. What's important is that I can get you out of your rut and make the media leave you alone."
Hearing this person claim that he could make the media stop harassing him, Zhao Da Yong was skeptical that this stranger would be so kind but still, he couldn't help but ask, "Tell me, what do you have in mind to make the reporters stop harassing me? Those reporters are like mad dogs! They won't listen!"
"Tsk, you're a hot piece of news nowobviously they won't let you off easily."
The man on the phone laughed and said, "As long as you revoke the lawsuit and the truth comes out, meaning you have to confess to the public saying you were framing Han Xian Yu for money, this matter will cease to be a hot topic and the media would subsequently stop paying attention to you."
Zhao Da Yong was stunned for a moment before yelling, "You think I'm an idiot? You were sent by Han Xian Yu, weren't you?!"
If I told the truth, not only would I not get a single cent, I'd have another charge to my name.
The only way I would do that is if I was a fool!
Hearing Zhao Da Yong's anger, the caller kept his composure and replied calmly, "Mr. Zhao, I'm afraid you're the foolish one. You still think you'll be given any compensation at this point, huh?
Before, Worldwide offered you a settlement so you wouldn't bring this to court, but that was because of pressure from the public. They were worried that if this case dragged on, Han Xian Yu would negatively impact the company's image.
But things are different now. The public is on Han Xian Yu's side, and Worldwide doesn't need to worry about the public's opinion anymore. As for the 'evidence' you presented, you know yourself that it won't stand in a court of law; Han Xian Yu will not be convicted of the crimes brought against him."
The caller paused and continued, "You could afford to be fearless last time because the whole world was on your side, but right now, tsk...
If you tell the truth now, the media wouldn't have any reason to keep digging for secrets and your life would return to normal after a few days.
However, if you don't withdraw your suit, there will be no end to it and there will always be people harassing you, pestering you. You'll have to live with harassment from the media and the curses of others for your entire life..."
