Meanwhile, Yang Lina was having a very difficult time in the police station. She was the prime suspect of killing Li Tian Ya and no matter how much she explains that she was at the Yang Mansion all night, nobody seems to believe her.
Another irritating thing was that the lawyer of the Yang Family refused to help her, so she was forced to contact the Xuan Family's lawyer who was still at Hong Kong assisting Xuan Zengmo in filing cases against the tabloids publishing news against him.
"I already told you, I did not kill him!" she hissed. "Do I look like a murderer?"
The detective stared at her for a moment, then released the contents of the folder he brought to Yang Lina..
"I am innocent! I already told you..." Yang Lina was about to deny when the detective laid a collection of photographs in front of her. However, after she took a look at the photos, her mind went blank as she stared wide eyed at the photos.
"This was you, just hours before the murder. Take a look. That was your car going into the Villa. Look at the time and date from the CCTV across the road."
"That was not my car! My car was on the Yang Mansion parking all night!"
"Mrs. Xuan… Your car was not seen in the Yang Mansion all night." The detective replied. "Do you take us as fools? We know about the video that involves you, your husband and the victim. You have the motive and we found some evidence that clearly points us to you and your sister-in-law."
"I-Im sorry. What did you say?"
"I said we have evidence that is enough to convict the two of you."
The detective only stared at her briefly before putting the photos back into the folder. "We are also waiting for the results of the fingerprint match. We found lots of fingerprints around the house and I am sure that yours is one of those."
"That… That is impossible." Yang Lina said. How could they have her fingerprints on the murder scene? Yang Lina was sure that she did not see Li Tian Ya during the past two weeks. Moreover, they always went to other places with the highest security. She was a hundred percent sure that she had never met Li Tian Ya in any of his houses.
'But would anyone believe that?' Lily's voice echoed inside her mind. That was what Lily told her when she showed her some images and short clips of her and Xuan Zengmo's sexual activities. At this point, Yang Lina was already aware that this was another one of Lily's schemes.
Yang Lina was sure that Lily would retaliate for her mother's death but she never thought Lily would dare frame her for Li Tian Ya's death. Still, Yang Lina thought that there would not be enough evidence for a case against her and He Yuyan.
Yang Lina watched as the detective left without saying a word. Since He Yuyan was here, the Yang Family must have already been aware of this matter. Even though her father already said that she was no longer a member of the Yang family, Yang Lina was sure that he would not have the heart to abandon her in such a place. If the Yang Family wanted bail He Yuyan out, she was sure that her father would also bail her.
Another hour had passed and Yang Lina was getting impatient. Yang Lina wanted to leave the place as soon as possible, however, the lawyer that Xuan Zengmo asked to help her was still not here yet.
"Hey! Give me some water." She yelled at the big mirror in front of her. She was sure that someone was behind watching her. Moreover, she also wanted to ask about the results of the fingerprint match. Once she hears that it wasn't her print, Yang Lina would immediately ask them to let her go as she was sure that there will be no case against her.
After a few minutes, the door opened. However, the person who came in was the detective that she had spoken to earlier.
"It is already so late…. Where is my lawyer?"
"Mrs. Xuan…" the detective started. "I was right. Your fingerprint indeed matched one of the fingerprints found in Mr. Li's place. We will file a case against you tomorrow morning. For now you and Mrs. Yang will spend the night in the prison."
"W- What did you say?" Yang Lina immediately asked, she wanted to clarify if she heard the right thing. Her fingerprints were found? How was that possible?
"I will not repeat myself. Stop denying your crime. Did you really think that you can rely on your family's name and commit murder just because you are a Yang? People like you are so entitled."
"Hold on!" Yang Lina slammed her hands into the table before she rose from her seat. "You dare talk to me like that? I am innocent! I did not kill anyone! You can't hold me here!" Yang Lina took a step forward. "I will leave this place! Get out of my way!"
"Mrs. Xuan… please don't force us to use force against you!" the detective said.
"I said get out of my way! Why are you detaining me? You don't have enough evidence to detain me! This is an abuse of your authority! Do you know what will happen if my father will get hold of this information!? He will surely destroy you and your family!"
"Mrs. Xuan…. Are you threatening a police officer?" The detective was unfazed. This was not his first time to talk to someone with an influential background. There was no reason for him to cower in fear after Yang Lina's threat?
However, to his surprise Yang Lina did not answer but shove him instead. She tried to walk past the detective but was stopped by another person who entered the room.
"Miss Yang… what are you doing, attacking a police officer like that?" Lily's voice was full of mirth as she walked inside the room. A beautiful smile slowly blossomed onto her face as she stood in front of Yang Lina. "Didn't you know that attacking someone inside a police station will only worsen your prison sentence?"
