Chapter 524: The Final Trump Card (2)
As the thought of Yun Rou crossed Xu Weilai’s mind, the latest news notification popped up on her cellphone screen. When she swept one glance at it, instantly picked up on the words “Yun Rou’s arrest”.
She couldn’t help but blink a few times and take a second look to confirm that she wasn’t hallucinating.
She quickly unlocked her phone and tapped on the news. It was written that Yun Rou was arrested in her apartment for attempted murder. She was handcuffed and was recognized by a passerby when the police led her out of the building. The passerby quickly shared the news with the reporters, who then rushed down to the police station to verify and report the matter as soon as they could.
Yun Rou was so smug when she called Xu Weilai that day and when Xu Weilai saw how embarrassed she was and how she tried to hide from the reporters, felt very pleased and satisfied.
Justice was slow but sure. Since she had done something terrible, she would have to pay for her deeds when the time was right.
Xu Weilai felt consoled by Xiao Chun. She was pleased that she hadn’t misjudged her character and that Xiao Chun had eventually made the right choice.
Nonetheless, Xiao Chun was an accomplice in the incident and even provided a false statement to the police. Thus, she would likely be charged for obstruction of justice. However, she as she managed to reform her ways early and switch her sides to become a witness for the case, she would likely be dealt a lighter sentence. Thus, Xu Weilai does not have to worry much for her.
Once the news of Yun Rou’s arrest was out, it made it to the top of the search results. No one expected her to dig her own grave and bring herself to such a miserable end.
Those who had liked her before could only lament over their lack of judgment and poor taste, which made them like a terrifying woman like Yun Rou.
Yun Rou’s management company’s public relations team no longer handled her case. The company even issued a Weibo statement to announce its intention to terminate the contract with Yun Rou and to emphasize that the company would have nothing more to do with her affairs in future.
After Gu Xiong heard of the news, hurriedly called up his teacher.
The moment his teacher answered the call, Gu Xiong asked, “Sir, have you heard the news of Yun Rou’s arrest? She would be charged for attempted murder. Is there anything that I could do?”
However, the mastermind merely sneered and replied, “I gave Yun Rou such a good card, but she played it so badly. What’s the point of having her?”
“So…” Gu Xiong chewed on his words for a moment before he asked, “Are you going to give up on Yun Rou?”
“Of course. In the past, I told you to lend her a helping hand because she caught my eye. But I realised that it was a misjudgment on my part. I thought that she truly had a place in Gu Yu’s heart, but obviously that’s not the case. Thus, she’s of no value to me now. It’s only natural for a useless pawn to be discarded.”
While Gu Xiong’s teacher sounded casual as he spoke, but his words made Gu Xiong break out in cold sweat.
“He’s really ruthless…But I’m lucky to have him as an ally,” Gu Xiong mused.
“Alright, I’ll obey your instructions. I won’t help Yun Rou anymore. In that case, what should we do next?” he asked.
The mastermind was pleased with his obedience and smiled as he replied, “There’s no rush. As far as I know, Yun Rou is down to her final trump card. She has been hiding it since she had our help previously. She’ll make her final move now that no one is there to help her. Let’s observe first so that we could find the best opportunity to attack.”
“Got it,” Gu Xiong replied.
When Yun Rou and Xiao Chun met in the cell, Yun Rou charged over and gave her a hard slap. Her fingerprints were all were clearly imprinted on Xiao Chun’s face and it was evident that she had struck her with all her might.
“Xiao Chun, how dare you betray me. I won’t let you or Xu Weilai have it easy. We’ll see how much longer you could maintain your friendship.”
That night, after Xu Weilai showered and was about to go to bed, received a text message from an unknown number.
After she tapped open and read the two messages, her face gradually turned pale.
