“No It was not me Someone must have framed me and made false charges against me!” Wen Yadai’s knees wobbled. If she wasn’t holding the edges of the table, she might have already collapsed onto the ground at this point in time.
The color on her face faded away instantly when she heard what Yu Yuehan said.
She had never expected that all the others who had had doubts about Nian Xiaomu just a moment ago would suddenly switch their suspicions over to her.
As she took in a deep breath, she forced herself to stand upright.
“Even if my computer was used to send the email, it is not proof that I was the one who did it. All the employees know that I never once came into contact with the design draft!” Wen Yadai bellowed.
It seemed like she was clutching the last piece of life-saving straw.
She stared at Nian Xiaomu fiercely.
“It must have been her! Nian Xiaomu must have used my computer and sent the email just to frame me. All of you have seen it just now! That wasn’t even my email address, it was just a side account that was signed in on my computer!”
The employees stared speechlessly at one another. None of them had any idea who they should trust.
Everyone knew that Wen Yadai had not come into contact with the design drafts at all.
She didn’t have the chance to divulge the contents even if she wanted to.
It seemed now that Nian Xiaomu was more suspicious and had a higher likelihood of being the corporate spy.
Nian Xiaomu, who had stayed silent throughout the debate, suddenly spoke up when she saw this and said, “I couldn’t figure out the reason at first either. I was the one who had personally received the design drafts and sent them directly to Manager Lin thereafter. No one intercepted the drafts during these actions. Technically speaking, it is impossible for the contents to be divulged. However, I finally came up with an idea about what had happened after I received a call from Mr. Lombardi.”
As Nian Xiaomu spoke, she connected her phone to the projector screen and played a clip.
It was a clip of herself and Lombardi speaking on a video call.
Lombardi was sitting at his office desk in the clip and someone was kneeling down in front of him.
It was his assistant.
Nian Xiaomu froze the image frame and enlarged it. Pointing to the person on it, she looked toward Wen Yadai.
“Manager Wen, you should be familiar with this person, right? He was the one who leaked the contents of the design drafts to you at the very same moment that I received the design drafts.”
“ I don’t know what you are talking about! I don’t even know this person!” Wen Yadai denied without a second thought.
However, the panic in her eyes could hardly be restrained.
Her entire body swayed.
She had never expected that Nian Xiaomu actually had the ability to uncover the identity of this person
When Nian Xiaomu heard her denial, she strolled to her in neither a conceited nor a rash manner.
At a volume that everyone could hear, she said, “You were very smart to intentionally remove yourself from contact with the design drafts. In this case, you would have nothing to do with anything that followed.”
“However, clever people may be victims of their own cleverness. The more unwilling you were to look at the design drafts, the more off I felt it was. As such, I asked Young Master Han to monitor all of the computers in the public relations department after I received the business card from you yesterday. As luck would have it, we intercepted your email that was sent from Italy and conveniently uncovered the mole near Lombardi.”
Wen Yadai shivered all over as her eyes opened wide in astonishment.
She could no longer hold out and sat paralyzed in the chair.
Nian Xiaomu continued to speak.
“Of course, I knew that you would not admit to it so easily. As a result, today’s show was specially prepared for you!”
With both her hands supporting the table, Nian Xiaomu bent over slightly. As she approached Wen Yadai, she laughed grimly.
“Anyway, I have to thank you, Manager Wen, for being so cooperative. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have known that you would be so daring as to leak the trade secrets of the company just to frame me. Moreover, you were even so generous as to deposit half a million yuan into my bank account. However, it’s really a pity that I won’t have the pleasure of enjoying this dirty money!”
