"So?" Qin Chuan gave the attendant another smile as he lifted an eyebrow at her. "Are you going to let me see my brother?"
"I… I… Of course. Of course, Mr. Qin. I'll have someone escort you to…"
"No need. I can manage," he said before walking towards the elevator with the two policemen.
"As I said… all of my accomplishments in this company and the fact that I personally groomed my daughter for the CEO position can attest to my capabilities and prove that I'm more than qualified for the Chairman position, yes?" Qin Hao gave everyone a cold and chilling smile. The Chairman position can only be his and no one else's. Sensing that he was swaying the opinions of the businessmen in front of him who were nodding their heads, he continued, "As someone from the Qin bloodline, coupled with all my notable accomplishments in the company, I am the most qualified person in this room to be the next Chairman. Isn't that right, Mr. Dongfang?" he sent Dongfang a provoking smile.
If his guess was right then this Mr. Dongfang could be one of Lily's people or else it wouldn't make sense for a mere VP to vie for the Chairman position unless he had a strong backer. It would then explain why he had the guts to garner votes from other shareholders to make him the next Chairman.
"Wrong," a sudden voice interrupted Qin Hao's train of thoughts, attracting everyone's attention as the door swung open and in came Qin Chuan followed by his companions. His presence instantly earned many surprised gasps from everyone, including Qin Hao. Of course, in his case he was surprised to see that Qin Chuan was not in a wheelchair. Was he pretending to be handicapped all this time?
Qin Hao instantly stiffened at the realization that Qin Chuan wasn't crippled. His eyes lingered on Qin Chuan's healthy legs before he finally met his brother's eyes.
"Surprised?" Qin Chuan asked as he opened the first button of his suit before walking towards the vacant seat on Qin Chuan's left. This seat was supposed to be Qin Mimi's.
"At this point, nothing surprises me anymore," Qin Hao said calmly. "You disappeared days before Father's death which I must add, your wife was responsible for. I believe everyone already know why you are here." he said, his face showed a tinge of disappointment and superficial sorrow.
Meanwhile, everyone who heard what Qin Hao said instantly knitted their brows. This was supposed to be their family issue and not many of them were made aware that Qin Chuan had disappeared days before his father's death. When Qin Chuan didn't show himself at his father's wake, everyone just assumed that he was being difficult because he had some issues with the will. However now…
"Aren't you even wondering why the police are here?" Qin Chuan ignored Qin Hao's empty words. He was already used to the man's acting and was also immuned to his lies. Seeing Qin Hao furrowing his brows, Qin Chuan knew he got his brother's attention. He languidly leaned on the chair and gave Qin Hao a small smile. "When the media - I mean the online world said something about my wife being the one responsible for my father's death, I instantly wondered why she would do such a thing. She was practically raised by Father and had been living with us for years. She had shown nothing but love and gentleness to our family. So how could she do this?"
"So I… even my daughter whom I was meeting during the period you claimed that I had disappeared, didn't believe it," Qin Chuan said before he reached out for the remote that was in front of Qin Hao. Then with the same smile on his face, he switched the channel and increased the volume.
[Until now, we don't have any news regarding Miss Zhang Yifei and whether she is still alive. However, we have already confirmed that this place indeed belonged to Mr. Qin Hao, the son of the recently deceased Chairman of the Qin Group. The police are already on their way to invite Mr. Qin Hao for questioning.]
Qin Hao's world seemed to shake as his eyes widened at the familiar location shown on the TV.
[Earlier this week, Miss Zhang filed a complaint of sexual assault against her husband's brother but the police was not able to obtain solid evidence. After that, Miss Zhang disappeared and everyone thought that she ran away from the Qin Family… oh…. We have the captain… Captain…Captain can you answer a few of our questions about this brutal crime?]
At this juncture, Qin Chuan muted the TV and stared at the frozen Qin Hao. "When everyone said that she disappeared after she filed a complaint against you… I already knew that you have captured her. I guess I was right?"
"You-" It was as if a bucket of cold water was poured on Qin Hao as he stared at Qin Chuan and was rendered speechless for a few seconds. "You are framing me!" he yelled before he lunged towards his brother, his eyes full of rage. However, the two police officers that was escorting Qin Chuan was quick enough to stop him. "You coward!" Qin Hao hissed as he glared at Qin Chuan's smiling face. He struggled against the grip of the police officers on his arms and tried to attack the latter but one of the policemen suddenly pinned him down to the floor.
"Mr. Qin, please do not resort to violence. We don't want to hurt you," the policeman warned. "We are only here to invite you to the police…"
"I am innocent! Why would you invite me and not this man? He was the one who kidnapped his own wife, not me."
"Please… Second Brother," Qin Chuan said, "At this point it is futile for you to keep up with this pretense. Do you think anyone will believe you? Please stop deluding yourself. The police have evidence that you were at that place this past few days while I was at my daughter's place spending some time with her."
"You liar! I dare you to fight me! Fight me without your schemes and these people around you! Qin Chuan, you are the worst person I have ever met!" Of course, Qin Hao still decided to put on a show. After all, a lot of shareholders were watching. He thought he could still use this situation to gain everyone's sympathy.
"Mr. Qin, please stop struggling and just come peacefully with us."
"NO! Call my lawyer! Can someone call my lawyer? I have the right not to go with the police! Let go of me or I am suing the whole police department! You hear me? Let me go!"
