Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
As someone who had experienced lifes ups and downs, Mrs.
Chen dealt with the matter in an efficient and decisive manner.
She led by example and was the first to take out her handbag so the person in charge of the hotel could inspect it.
Mu Feichi also took his mobile phone and wallet out of his pocket out of respect for Mrs.
After the host became the first to step up to clear herself, and even Mu Shao had set a good example, others quickly followed suit.
The hotel staff and security staff began to check the tables one by one.
Liang Xinyi and Yun Ziling glanced at Yun Xi, who they believed to be ignorant of their scheme, then turned to Liang Xiuqin.
The stolen watch had undoubtedly given them a good opportunity.
Although the search was looking for the watch, the jade seal in Yun Xis bag would also be discovered.
By that time, she would not be able to clear her name even if she jumped into the Yellow River.
Liang Xiuqin made an eye gesture at the two of them to not give themselves away.
The staff quickly arrived at Yun Zilings table and started conducting the round of inspection.
When it was time to inspect Yun Zilings handbag, they unexpectedly found the stolen watch.
“Found it!” The staff yelled, and everyone stopped to look at the guests at that table.
Yun Ziling stared at the watch that had been discovered in her handbag with a dumbstruck look.
She looked as if she had been struck by thunder, her eyes wide in disbelief.
The next second, she started yelling, “Thats impossible! How could this be!”
How could the watch be on her! That was impossible! There must be something wrong.
“I didnt steal it! It wasnt me…”
Yun Ziling watched the staff holding her handbag in one hand and the watch in the other.
Hard evidence was right there, so it was hard to argue about it.
But she didnt even know when the watch had been placed in her bag.
She really hadnt stolen the watch.
There was a lot of discussion among the guests who were sitting around them.
Yun Ziling hadnt the slightest clue what was going on, so she desperately looked toward Liang Xiuqin.
“Mom, it wasnt me.
I dont know whats going on…”
Liang Xiuqin was also extremely taken aback by this situation.
She couldnt believe that the watch had turned up in Yun Zilings bag.
“You must have made a mistake.
This is impossible.
My daughter wouldnt do such a thing.”
“The hard evidence is right there, so how could it be impossible” The staff handed the bag and watch to the manager.
The manager glanced at the watch, then turned around and handed the watch to Henglin for inspection.
After confirming that it was indeed his, he looked toward Liang Xiuqin.
“Madame, the watch was found in your daughters handbag.
Im afraid you need to give the auction an account of the incident.”
“No! Impossible! This wasnt us! My daughter is a good girl, so how could she do such a thing.
Someone must have planted it on her.”
The manager looked down at the high-heeled shoes on Yun Zilings feet and compared them to the shoes in the surveillance footage on the monitor.
“Dont those shoes match the pair on your feet The watch was also found in your handbag.
The evidence is conclusive, so are you going to admit it or not”
He had never seen such a shameless person.
Liang Xiuqin glanced at the high-heeled shoes in the surveillance footage, and her heart sank.
She simply could not understand what was going on.
Everything had been going so smoothly, so how did the watch end up in Yun Zilings bag
After shed racked her brains thinking about it, she could only think of one possibility.
She suddenly turned her head toward Yun Xi, who was sitting at the table, and glowered at her venomously.
“Yun Xi, it was you! It was you who planted it on your sister.
It must have been you.”
“Mom, what about our agreement about pretending not to know each other Now that you need a scapegoat, youve decided to throw me under the bus”
“It must have been you! It was you who framed your sister.”
None of the people there had any vendettas against them, and Yun Xi was the only one who resented them, so only she could have done such a vicious thing.
“Accusing someone of framing a person needs evidence.
If you can find the evidence, Ill admit it.”
“Do you think I have no evidence”
In order to protect Yun Ziling, Liang Xiuqin was ready to fight to the death with Yun Xi, so she said aggressively, “Manager, the evidence is in her handbag.
She framed her.”
