Chapter 523: The Final Trump Card (1)
Xu Shuai was pretending to be composed but when he saw Xu Weilai come out of the room, could no longer contain himself. He quickly jumped up from his chair and rushed over to her before he asked anxiously, “How was it? Did you manage to talk through things properly with Chunchun? Is she willing to come over to our side instead?”
“I’ve said everything that I could.”
Xu Weilai sighed softly and resumed, “But you know how she is. She’s a loyal person who values her family and friends. I’ve already analyzed the pros and cons with her. She’ll have to figure out the rest herself.”
Xu Shuai was at a lost for words.
He scowled and his brows scrunched together so tightly that it was as if he could squeeze a fly to death with it. Xu Weilai couldn’t help but burst out into laughter. She then stopped teasing him and assured, “Don’t worry. I’m confident that Chunchun will stand on my side.”
“What makes you so confident?”
It was inevitable that Xu Shuai would find it dubious, for up till now, everything that Xiao Chun had done was for the sake of Yun Rou.
Although Xu Weilai was almost like a sister to her, Yun Rou was her real biological sister.
Gu Yu, too, rose and walked towards them. Xu Weilai looked up at him and conveniently slipped her arms into his before she said, “There’s obviously a reason why I’m so confident. It’s…all thanks to Gu Yu.”
Gu Yu’s gaze flitted over to her and there was a rare look of bafflement in his eyes.
Xu Shuai swept one glance at Gu Yu before he looked at Xu Weilai and asked, “Thanks to Yu? What has it got to do with him? Stop keeping us in suspense. Out with it!”
When Gu Yu saw how Xu Shuai had practically become a ball of nerves, chimed in and urged, “So what’s the reason?”
Xu Weilai beamed and replied, “Do you still remember that you once said that the two pieces of evidence presented in court were sent to you by different people? We already know that one of the evidence was from my boss. As for the other one…it was probably from Chunchun if my guess is right.”
“She is Yun Rou’s sister and could get close to her. Thus, she’s the only one who could easily get hold of the report about Yun Rou’s previous hand injury.”
“She’s constantly helping Yun Rou, but she’s also helping me all along as well. In other words, she still favoured me. From the start to the end, she never once harmed me and thus, I’m confident that she’ll still be on my side this time.”
As she said this, cocked her head and blinked her huge eyes at Gu Yu. She then flashed him a sweet smile and added, “I’m such a lovable person after all, don’t you agree?”
Gu Yu’s lips curled up into a smile when he saw how mischievous she was. Ignoring his principles, he nodded and agreed, “Yes.”
Xu Shuai was rendered speechless.
He shuddered and couldn’t help but grumble silently, “Why are they acting lovey-dovey all of a sudden when we’re right in the middle of business? Are they ignoring my presence here?”
Xu Shuai could only try his best to interject and ask, “What if you’re wrong?”
Xu Weilai glanced at him from the corner of her eyes and retorted, “We can’t afford to be wrong.”
Xu Shuai threw his head back in exasperation and let out a long sigh before he said, “Let’s hope that you’re right then. I don’t want anything to happen to Chunchun. If she takes the blame for this, she’ll really be ruined for the rest of her life.”
Xu Weilai stayed in the hospital for a few more days and her wounds gradually healed. After the doctor conducted a detailed examination on her and confirmed that she was fine, she was then discharged.
Gu Xue came to pick her up on the day when she was due to leave the hospital and brought with her a beautiful bouquet of roses. However, Xu Weilai was inevitably reminded of Xiao Chun when she saw the roses. In the past, Xiao Chun would always bring along a bouquet of flowers whenever she visited her.
For the past few days, although Xu Weilai received no news from Xiao Chun, found out that Yun Rou was preparing to leave the country.
If Xiao Chun does not expose Yun Rou, it would be difficult to arrest her after she left the country.
