The Widow “Misses” Her Villainous Late Husband - Chapter 128
Ah Chi moved out on the same day and Yu Duo didn’t dare to ask any more questions about the matter.
However, after finding out that Ah Chi was not the father of the child in her belly, Yu Duo simultaneously breathed a sigh of relief and also felt as if her heart was stuck in her throat.
Since Ah Chi was not the father of the child, who was?
She had her period three months ago, which was to say, the hospital she visited yesterday that told her she was three months pregnant must have misdiagnosed her, and now she really had no idea who the father was.
She mentally went down the list of all the people she had come into contact with during this time, but still had no clues.
Night had fallen and the whole villa was lit up like daylight, however, Fu Sinian’s study was strangely dark.
Fu Sinian silently sat behind his desk. He didn’t turn on the lights, and the curtains were tightly closed.
With a snap, Fu Sinian lit a cigarette and looked at the three documents in front of him by the light of the lighter.
They were not the usual business documents he looked at in this study. One was Yu Duo’s medical examination report from the hospital, one was all the arrangements Ah Chi had made for Yu Duo after she had left home yesterday, and the last one was the arrangements Yu Duo had prepared herself.
The second set of documents included plane tickets, a hospital that performed abortions, a private nurse, basically everything Yu Duo would need. It was all prepared perfectly and all aspects had been taken into account, overall, Ah Chi’s arrangements were careful and safe.
But, what a pity, Yu Duo hadn’t moved according to Ah Chi’s plan at all. Instead, she got on a plane for a city that was very far from the one Ah Chi had arranged.
There was a new identity, and a new home… Fu Sinian used the light of the flame to slowly read the third set documents. Before tonight, he would never have dreamed that his wife, who had always acted so obedient and guileless in front of him, actually had this side to her. He had no idea she had the ability to arrange a way out for herself so meticulously, even better than Ah Chi. If he had really let her run away with her own power then it would probably have taken him quite a while for him to find her again.
Still, he more or less knew what both Ah Chi and Yu Duo had been thinking.
It seemed that Ah Chi had feelings for Yu Duo that were deeper than just friends, however, since Fu Sinian had almost single-handedly raised the man, he was confident in his belief that Ah Chi wouldn’t do anything out of line.
Meanwhile, Yu Duo was afraid of him and didn’t love him. Even though they had shared a bed together for three years, she had planned to leave him without a word. And until now, he still didn’t even know why.
However, since Yu Duo didn’t seem to want to confess, he had no intention of exposing her thoughts for the time being.
Fu Sinian slowly stacked the three documents together and then put one corner of the pile under the lighter, lit them, and then threw the now-burning documents into the trash can near his desk.
The fire in the metal trash can got bigger and bigger, slowly illuminating the study with orange light.
A second after the last embers burned out, Fu Sinian pushed the door open and stepped out of the study.
Meanwhile, in their room, Yu Duo had laid down and fallen asleep almost immediately. She was very tired after being shocked time and again during the day. When he saw that, Fu Sinian didn’t disturb her. He just took a bath and then laid down in bed and silently hugged her from behind, his broad and warm palms gently stroking Yu Duo’s belly.
Yu Duo was particularly sensitive about her stomach recently, so when someone touched it she was immediately startled drowsily awake.
“Why are you still up?” Fu Sinian murmured.
Yu Duo didn’t turn around to face him. She just half buried her face in the quilt and whispered, “Sinian, my parents don’t know I’m pregnant yet. Tomorrow I want to go home and tell them the news.”
“I’ll go back with you.”
“No, it’s okay.” Yu Duo turned to look at him. “Your work is important. I can go by myself.”
Fu Sinian whispered in her ear, “Come back early.”
A heavy rain began to fall after midnight, and soon all of S City was shrouded by the cold and damp.
On the way back to the Yu family, Yu Duo suddenly told the driver to take her to the hospital instead. She had two different examination results clenched in her hands, the three-month diagnosis and the two-month diagnosis. Until she knew which hospital had misdiagnosed her, Yu Duo felt that her heart would never be able to calm down.
Yu Duo felt very worried as she looked down at the two reports in her hands.
She really hoped that the baby in her belly could really be three months old, so that all of her difficulties would be easily solved!
The driver, Xiao Zhang, was worried about the pregnant Yu Duo and drove very slowly and steadily. However, at one point while they were turning a corner, a Maybach suddenly and arrogantly swerved passed them and splashed up a meter of water from a puddle on the side of the road, angering many pedestrians.
Fortunately, Xiao Zhang was a good driver and he quickly stabilized the wheel, narrowly avoiding colliding with the Maybach.
“Xiao Zhang, what’s going on?”
Xiao Zhang stared back at the Maybach and scolded it secretly in his heart, but on the outside he just smiled and said, “It’s nothing madam.”
The arrogant Maybach driver that had swerved passed Yu Duo’s car eventually came to a stop in front of the police station.
“President Qin, we’re here.”
The driver quickly got out of the car, took out an umbrella, and then went around to the other side of the car and opened the rear door.
Qin Shao stepped out of the car, glanced around, and walked into the police station alone.
Inside a visitation room, a handcuffed Qiao Jiao was eventually led inside.
The matter of the forged will was still under investigation, and Qiao Jiao had been locked up this entire time. By now her figure had become visibly thinner, her cheeks were sunken, her hair was dishevelled, and you couldn’t see the slightest trace of the magnificent and charming woman she had been in the past.
Qiao Jiao sat down in front of Qin Shao. She looked at him with cold eyes, with a strange, almost smug, smile playing about the corners of her lips.
“You’ve come at last?”
Qin Shao didn’t even look at her. He just played with a lighter that was in his hand, seeming to pay no attention to her at all.
“Go ahead. Speak.”
“What do you want me to say?”
When he heard that, Qin Shao finally stopped playing with the lighter and raised his eyes.
Qiao Jiao met his eyes fearlessly and said with a smile, “President Qin, I have done a lot of things for you over the years. But now something has happened to me, and I’ve lost my use, you want to burn the bridge after crossing? If you do this, how do you plan to have people trust you enough to do anything for you in the future?”
Qin Shao stared back at her with deep eyes.
Completely fearless, Qiao Jiao continued: “In fact, I’ve always admired you President Qin. You’re a man who can do great things. Unfortunately, you’ve been suppressed by Fu Sinian all these years. It probably feels very uncomfortable, right?”
Qin Shao chuckled and then continued to play with his lighter. “You wasted my time by calling me here just to say this?”
“Actually, there’s something else,” said Qiao Jiao. “I doubt anyone in S City could be your opponent if Fu Sinian weren’t around. However, what a pity, who would have thought that Fu Sinian has such a blessed life and could come back from the dead? In my estimates, Fu Sinian already has that project south of the city in the bag.”
Qiao Jiao had been working for Fu Sinian all these years, so what kinds of things had she not seen before? So she knew very clearly what the ugly expression on the man across the table’s face represented. When she saw that expression, she immediately smiled and said, “Fu Sinian has made a lot of philanthropic gestures over the years, and during the recent charity auction, Yu Duo even donated another 80 million yuan in his name. Don’t you think that this year’s Top Ten Outstanding Young Businessmen award will definitely go to him? And don’t you think that the government will take that award into consideration when they’re thinking about the project south of the city?”
Qin Shao’s eyes drooped slightly and his tone was flat, as if it didn’t make any difference to him either way, “In any case, it’s just a project.”
“Just a project? If it was really ‘just’ a project, why did you fight with Fu Sinian over it for so long?” Having spoken to this point, Qiao Jiao no longer bothered to hide her intentions. “Honestly, I’ve long seen through you. You will save me because of your own interests. Because, as long as you can find a way to get me out, I can help you win that project.”
When he heard those words, Qin Shao’s eyes flickered frivolously, “Big words.”
“Let me out and you’ll see if they’re just big words or not.”
Qin Shao stared at her silently and calculated in his heart. Of course, Qiao Jiao currently had nothing but time, so she just waited for him quietly.
After a while, Qin Shao sneered and said, “Tell me, how can I help?”
When she saw that Qin Shao had given in, Qiao Jiao smiled and said. “I’ve worked for Fu Sinian for seven years, and I know a lot of things. All that time, Fu Sinian has always been very cautious and has never let any handles for other people to use against him appear. But, do you know why Yu Duo married Fu Sinian back then?”
Qin Shao raised an eyebrow, “Why?”
Qiao Jiao spoke slowly, as if to keep the tension high, “He drugged her. I know because it was Fu Sinian who asked me to find the drugs.”
Qin Shao was stunned, “Drugged?” Do you have proof?”
Qin Shao felt his heart tighten.
If Qiao Jiao really had proof of this thing, then it would be a great scandal for Fu Sinian and Madam Fu. If the story got out, then the Top Ten Outstanding Young Businessmen award would never be able to fall on Fu Sinian and the project…
“If you’re lying to me…”
Qiao Jiao’s handcuffed hands were clenched into fists under the table. She knew very well that this was her only chance.
“You can just put me right back in jail.”
She spoke the words in a light and breezy tone.
Qin Shao sneered. In the end, she was just a woman.
“Then, happy cooperation.”
Qiao Jiao smiled, and her fists under the table slowly loosened.
“Happy cooperation.” She replied with a smile.
