Chapter 15.3 – Bellflower in Full Bloom
Xue Rui thought he plotted everything very well, but unfortunately for him, he took Xue Jing Yi’s suggestion and bought two kilograms of heroin to frame Huang Yi. Buying and selling drugs was a felony, not to mention he had purchased such a huge amount. It was possible that he could be sentenced to lifetime imprisonment or maybe even the death penalty.
Xue Rui panicked, and immediately retracted his confession and pushed all the charges onto Xue Jing Yi. Xue Li Dan Ni also followed the lawyer’s advice and testified that Xue Jing Yi was the mastermind in all of this.
In fact, they did not accuse Xue Jing Yi wrongly. The evidence obtained showed that Xue Jing Yi was indeed the mastermind behind the murder attempt. In order to plunder her twin brother’s heart, she had carefully drafted several plans for murder, and they could be described as unscrupulous and exhaustive.
When Xue Jing Yi learned that all the evidence pointed to her, and that she would be facing the death penalty on the heavy side of punishment or fifteen years of imprisonment on the lighter end, due to the huge amount of drugs purchased, her soul figuratively left her body.
At this time, a reporter from CCTV came to interview this former star, who once glowed beneath a halo of light, but was now behind bars. What the reporter saw was Xue Jing Yi shaking the jail bars, shouting, and crying bitterly. She kept saying that she was wrong and that she was merely possessed (by a ghost), and so on.

“I want to see my big brother, I want a lawyer, let my big brother help me hire the best lawyer! Huang Yi ran away from home already, he is not dead, we didn’t commit a crime yet.” She still tried to defend herself.
The CCTV reporter stood by and watched for a while. He recorded a sufficient amount of footage of her crying with tears and mucus flowing profusely, putting on a shameful performance of someone on the brink of going crazy. Only then did he step forward to interview her. But at that moment, he saw a few big name lawyers with briefcases hurrying over. Their expressions were extremely solemn.
The reporter recognized that these people were big names in the country of China, and their consulting fee was extremely expensive. Therefore, they did not pay any attention to the camera recording next to them.
“Uncle Li, you came! Did my big brother ask you to defend me?” Xue Jing Yi went to grab Lawyer Li’s clothes through the prison bars.
He was Xue Rui’s long time friend, and had watched Xue Zi Xuan and Xue Jing Yi grow up since childhood. He never foresaw that such a thing could happen.
Because of his honest character and upright conduct, Xue Rui only asked him to deal with the company’s legal affairs. As for the shady secrets, they were handed over to another lawyer. This was also the reason why he was not dragged into the muck with them.
To be honest, he was very distressed and shocked on the day the incident broke out. In any case, he never thought that his old friend would target an innocent teenager in order to extend the life of his adopted daughter.
What made it even harder for him to believe was Xue Jing Yi’s viciousness. After hearing those audio files, he felt cold from the inside out, and he couldn’t imagine what Huang Yi must have felt when he heard them.
He avoided Xue Jing Yi’s outstretched hand and unconsciously showed a look of disgust on his face. Then he took out a document from his briefcase and said: “This is a document to dissolve your adopted relationship with the Xue family. Xue Rui and Xue Li Dan Ni have already signed it. You should sign it too.”
The reporter was keenly aware that this was a hot topic, and quickly asked the cameraman to take some footage of the document.
Zhou Yun Sheng, who was far away in the UK, was able to see the contents of this document clearly. It was indeed a document to terminate the adopted relationship between Xue Jing Yi and the Xue family. After signing this, Xue Jing Yi would have nothing to do with the Xue family anymore. And she still wanted Xue Zi Xuan to hire the best lawyer for her and to be released on bail. What a pipe dream.
The princess of the Xue family, who once stood upon a pedestal, was nothing from today on. Oh wait, she still had one identity that she could “show off.” A prisoner.

Seeing this, Zhou Yun Sheng released a long sigh. If he had not gotten rid of the villain system, Xue Jing Yi’s fate today would’ve become his fate in the future.
There was the likelihood that he would be imprisoned for persecuting her. Or perhaps, some accident might occur, and there would be a perfectly reasonable and legal explanation for her to receive his heart. Then she would live peaceful and beautiful days with her beloved, and be happy all her life.
But why? For what reason? Why should he have to offer up his live to create a beautiful future for them?
Rubbing his eyebrows, he stared indifferently at the crying girl on the screen.
At this moment, she was not the same glamorous and calm girl in the Golden Hall.
Xue Jing Yi tried to snatch the document away to tear it up, but the lawyer avoided her. So she rolled about and cried, clutching her heart and screaming that she was in pain. She exhausted every means to evade this document.
In the end, she got her wish. Her heart acted up and she was rushed to the hospital. The reporting crew chased after the ambulance for a while, but eventually had to give up the chase, and returned without completing the interview.
