Everyone furrowed their brows when they heard Yang Lina's claim. Why would Yang Sen hurt her instead of supporting her?
"My father would never hurt a woman!" Yang Jing hissed as he narrowed his eyes at Yang Lina. "Why don't you tell us about the fact that my father's position when he fell signified that he was about to walk out of the door? He didn't attack you! He was walking out of his office!"
"What are you saying?" Yang Lina asked before she eyed her father. As expected, Old Man Yang seemed to realize this fact too. "Yang Sen attacked me, why would I lie about that? Why would I attack my own brother without rhyme or reason?"
"You think you would have survived if my father had attacked you?" Once again Yang Lina was stumped by Yang Jing's words. True, if Yang Sen had attacked her, she would not have had the chance to breathe another word. She stared wide-eyed at Yang Jing then shifted her gaze to everyone in the room. By now, they were all looking at her in a very disapproving way. It was as if everyone was already judging her.
George Yang suddenly gasped aloud as he stared at his phone. He quickly passed his phone to his father, Yang Tao, who immediately furrowed his brows while watching the video. "Is this the reason why you hurt elder brother?" Even though Yang Tao was younger than Yang Sen, he was taller and leaner than his brother. This made him look even more intimidating than Yang Sen. Moreover, both men inherited Old Man Yang's righteous heart and shared some pretty similar moral characteristics. The only difference was Yang Tao tended to spoil her while Yang Sen tended to be neutral about everything.
"Answer me, Lina!" Yang Tao said before slowly passing the video to Old Man Yang. And instantly, Old Man Yang's face contorted into an ugly scowl.
"That's not the truth. I told you someone is blackmailing me and they wanted some money. I was just trying to ask Elder brother for help and yet… he…"
"What about my sister?" Yang Jing asked. "Are you not here because you caused an accident that hurt her?"
"What Sister?" Old Man Yang asked while looking at Yang Jing. Seeing everyone's confused expressions, Yang Jing quickly explained how his father told him about Yang Mi and her accident just this morning.
This turn of events was completely unexpected by Yang Lina. Yang Sen was not the type of person who would discuss his secrets with everyone, so she was confident that he wouldn't say anything about Yang Mi, or at least he wouldn't until Yang Mi was brought over to the mansion. Yang Lina's gaze lingered on Yang Jing as he told the whole Yang Family about Yang Mi. Did Yang Sen tell him about what happened seven years ago, too?
A scary thought instantly flashed in her mind. What if Yang Jing knows? What if Yang Sen already explained everything to his son? What if that was the reason why Yang Jing was treating her with hostility and suspicion, the moment he saw her in the office?
Yang Lina's thoughts were abruptly interrupted when she heard her phone ring. She immediately opened her phone and looked at everyone before walking out of the room. The caller was Xuan Hui, and Yang Lina already knew the purpose of his call.
Yang Lina quickly assured her son that everything would be alright and that the video was fake. Photoshopping someone into a video these days was easy to do. Moreover, it is pretty normal for a politician like Xuan Zeng to have enemies who would want to destroy his career. Yang Lina knew that with his team of advisers, Xuan Zeng must have already come up with a solution to this video by now.
After Yang Linaended the call she received further calls from her friends asking her about the situation, just as Xuan Hui had done, but she quickly told them that it was nothing but a scheme to taint Xuan Zengmo's career. Of course, with Yang Lina's calm voice, all of her friends easily believed her.
"She hurt her brother?" Lily raised an eyebrow at Zhuo Jingren. It was already eleven in the evening and she was preparing to sleep when they received a call from one of Zhuo Jingren's people telling them that Yang Sen had been rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately his people were unaware if Yang Sen was still alive, but it had been firmly established that Yang Lina was the one who hurt him. "Well… that was easy," Lily concluded.
"Something else is going on here," Zhuo Jingren said before lying down next to Lily. "I already asked my men to investigate further. Also, I've had someone contact Mr. Martin to schedule a quick Skype Call tomorrow."
"Alright," Lily said as she gazed at the ceiling. Zhuo Jingren had a point. A normal brother would try and help his sister at a time like this. Lily was actually waiting for the Yang Family to aid Yang Lina before she would ask Zhuo Jingren to start with his plans. But this…. Isn't this just too quick? Did Yang Sen choose to abandon his sister over some video? That would be impossible. "Hey… what do you think will happen to Yang Lina once she loses the support of the Yang Family?" she wondered out loud.
"Why are you concerned about her now?" Zhuo Jingren asked. "Are you regretting putting your grand plan into action?"
"Of course not. Plus, I am not the one doing it. It's you, ah."
"Well… you are the brain and I am the brawns. Aren't we just perfect for each other?" Zhuo Jingren laughed before he hugged Lily.
"Too perfect," she said in a low voice.
"You know, when you came back I never expected you to cause storm after storm in this country. First, the Tangs, now the Yangs and tomorrow the Qins. Tell me, my little wife, are you planning to purge every family who offended you?"
"So what if I am?" Lily countered. This was not her intention, alright? Purging was too far-fetched. She just wanted to give those people a little taste of what she'd experienced at their hands.
