“Second Miss, help me!I was wrongly accused!Second Miss, help me.”
In an emergency, she lunged at Clara, trying to call for her help.
However, before jumping on Clara, he was already being dragged back.
Clara’s face showed a look of embarrassment and intolerance.
“Grandpa, maybe Rain is also a momentary ghost…”
“No pleading for her!”
Master Guan interrupted her and said angrily, “The heart of a six year old child who can do such a cruel thing to a six year old child can be punished, our Guan family will never harbor such a sinner!”
Rain cried out in despair at the news.
Softly advising, “I’m sorry, I can’t help you, you…better fend for yourself.”
I said, turning my head to the side unbearably.
Someone in the crowd ridiculed, “What’s the point of keeping such a vicious woman with a heart like a snake and scorpion?Second Miss is just too kind to actually plead for such sc*m.”
“That’s right, even a child can do it, or a daughter of the Lu family, she’s trying to break the friendship between the Guan and Lu families, think about it carefully.”
“This servant’s identity is not simple, isn’t it, to be able to do something like this, it’s not certain that someone is behind it.”
“It’s awful!How can this man be so bad.”
“I’m glad it was uncovered, but if it hadn’t been, just the thought of people like that hanging around would have seeped through.”
“It’s still Second Miss with a good heart, even this sc*m will sympathize.”
Clara’s lips curled imperceptibly as she listened to the seven mouths of discussion around her.
Outside the crowd, Guan Xuefei looked at the scene and clenched her fists so hard that she just wanted to rush out immediately.
However, there was a small figure, faster than her, who rushed in front of Rain at once.
Old Mrs. Sham was shocked and called out, “Anon, what are you doing?”
I saw Ann run up to Rain and stop the two security guards who were pulling her out before grabbing Rain’s hand again and putting it on her back.
Everyone was stunned and unsure, even Rain was momentarily shocked by her actions and forgot how to react.
Only Clara, who had been standing in the crowd, frowned.
Ann let go of Rain’s hand and turned, looking at Kwan.
“Grandpa Kwan, this young lady is not the one who pushed me down.”
The audience was in an uproar.
Master Guan slightly restrained his eyebrows, his tone showing some displeasure.
“Ani, do you know what you’re talking about?”
Ann’s look was so serious that she said word for word, “I know, I said, she’s not the one who pushed me into the pool.”
That’s when everyone reacted.
“Who is this, if this isn’t her?”
“Didn’t we find all the evidence?The human and physical evidence is there, so how could it not be her?”
“Yeah, and this Miss Ann, she didn’t see the murderer, she didn’t even get the surveillance, how can she be so sure she didn’t push it?”
The crowd was talking again.
Master Lu suddenly spoke.
“All right, everyone, quiet down.”
He looked at Ann gently and said softly, “Good granddaughter, tell me well, how did you find out that this young lady is not the one who pushed you down.”
Ann turned to re-take Rain’s hand and said seriously, “Because I remembered
The way that person’s hand felt when she touched my shoulder when she pushed me down, her hand was soft, and although it was strong, it felt more like a more delicate hand.
But this lady’s hands are too big and too thick, and when you press on your shoulders, they’re all hard bones and not comfortable at all, so I don’t think she’s even the one who pushed me down there before.”
That was another full outburst.
Rain stayed there for a moment, reacting and looking at Ann incredulously.
Because she was a maid, Rain would often do some rough work, and being from the north, she was born with a large bone structure and bigger hands than the average girl.
Coupled with the fact that Rain herself was relatively skinny, there was little meat on her hands, just by virtue of her natural skeletal advantage alone, a pair of hands that at first glance didn’t look like a woman’s, but rather like a man’s, full of power.
Therefore, such a pair of hands, touching the body, naturally would not be a soft feeling.
In the meantime, a few of the old men knitted their brows at this analysis by Ann.
Rain, on the other hand, was so grateful that she was almost kneeling to Ann.
“Miss Ann Ann is right, I really didn’t push her, and I’m just a maid, I have no quarrel with Miss Ann Ann, it’s not my fault to harm her at all!That butterfly toy must have been put in my room on purpose by someone who framed me!”
Xiao Yu shouted hoarsely, and Clara’s face changed.
She sighed and said softly, “But it turns out that no one else has a motive or a chance but you.”
After a pause, he added, “Xiao Yu, I know you are scared in your heart right now, although I don’t know why you want to harm An An, but I’m sure you have your own reasons, don’t worry, as long as you are willing to tell the truth and admit your mistakes in time, Grandpa will definitely forgive you.”
Rain shook her head incessantly.
“No, it really wasn’t me, Second Miss, please believe me, I really didn’t harm Miss Ann Ann.”
Clara’s brow furrowed even deeper, and a trace of impatience flashed rapidly under her eyes.
“I’d like to believe you, but… Miss Ann is only a six-year-old after all, and perceptions can be faulty, so how can you prove that you’re not the murderer?”
Rain was stunned.
Completely unexpected that Clara would say that.
A great sense of despair and panic swept over her, and she shook her head nervously, losing her voice, “I… I don’t know.”
Clara sighed helplessly.
The picture is like that of a deadbeat prisoner who can’t argue when confronted with a good man who is bitter and kind.
Just at this moment, Jenny suddenly spoke up.
“It’s not that hard to find the real killer.”
The crowd stared at her in amazement.
Only Jenny didn’t know what time it was, but he already had the toy butterfly in his hand.
The pollen-colored butterfly turned gently on her delicate, pretty fingertips as if it were alive, and just looking at it that way, one could imagine how Ann had chased it out as a real butterfly in the dimly lit conditions.
Master Guan frowned and asked patiently, “What do you say to that?”
Jenny Jing raised his eyes slightly and smiled, “As An’an just said, this Miss Xiaoyu is indeed not the one who pushed her into the water, and the proof is on this toy butterfly.”
Everyone was startled.
I don’t understand what Jenny’s gourd is selling.
Not only those people beside her, but now even Master Lu and Old Lady Cen were confused by her.
Only Biden Lu, as he looked at the butterfly toy, his eyes dimmed slightly, and his eyes were crossed.
Master Guan said in a deep voice, “Daughter-in-law Lu, this butterfly toy was found in her room, doesn’t it just prove that the murderer is her?As for the motive, it doesn’t matter if she won’t say anything now, she’ll naturally be willing to talk when she’s suffered a bit and knows that it’s useless to argue.”
She didn’t think that Master Guan would be such an arbitrary person.
She shook her head and said in a deep voice, “No, the old man is wrong, this butterfly toy, although it was found from Xiao Yu’s room, it doesn’t mean it’s hers.”
The words were confusing to everyone.
One by one, they looked at her, puzzled as to what she meant.
Guan Jili sneered, “If that doesn’t explain it, what else does it take to explain it?”
“Of course it’s about the more detailed evidence!”
Jenny Jing picked up the butterfly toy and displayed it in front of everyone, saying aloud, “Everyone, please look, this toy is very ordinary, but if you look closely, you will see that there is a spot on its wings that is wet.I just smelled it carefully and there was perfume on it, and I didn’t remember what it was, but someone just walked by me and accidentally made me smell this perfume, and I remembered that it was Armani’s latest theone.
Everyone knew that this perfume was very popular when it came out, and naturally the price wasn’t cheap either, Xiao Yu was just a maid, and her yearly salary probably wasn’t enough to buy a bottle, so if the stuff was hers, how could it smell so strong?So, I think it’s probably just that someone noticed that things were about to be exposed and threw something into her room, thereby planting evidence!”
The crowd was filled with shock at the news, how could they have never thought that such a simple little incident would actually pull out such a complicated truth behind it.
Clara’s face, on the other hand, changed slightly, and a flash of panic flashed across her eyes.
Someone asked, “So who’s the real killer?”
Jenny Jing slightly hooked her lips, looking towards Clara with a partial smile, “What an unfortunate coincidence, I just passed by this lady’s side and smelled this smell, Miss Jing Er, shouldn’t you come out and explain at this time?”
Clara swished and completely changed colour, her eyes flickering as she stammered, “Sister, I don’t understand what you’re saying!”
“Oh?It doesn’t matter if you don’t admit it, the butterfly’s wings are so wet, I don’t think it’s because the perfume was accidentally broken or spilled on the wings.Is it convenient for Miss Jing Er to lend me your handbag?”
Clara was in a panic and wanted to refuse, but Old Mrs. Cen had already given a wink to Mo Nan who was next to her, who immediately stepped forward and snatched her handbag off.
“What are you doing?Sister, it’s not that I-“
Before Clara could finish her words, Jenny Jing had already opened her handbag.
As it turned out, only the inside of the handbag, there is also a wet mark, which is a strong aroma, and is obviously the result of perfume spilled.
Clara looked at her, her face quickly paling.
Jenny Jing turned around, handed the bag to the old man, and sneered, “As expected, if anyone doesn’t believe me, you can come over and take a look at it yourself, smell it, and see if I’ve wronged her!”
The change came so quickly that everyone was a little unaware of it.
When the reactions came, they all looked incredulously at Clara, and the crowd erupted in a shocked discussion.
Is that so?It was actually Clara who did it!”
“That’s unbelievable, I just saw her plead for that maid, I thought she was some nice person!I didn’t realize she was the real culprit!”
“This thief is too good at backstabbing a thief!”
“If she hadn’t been caught out now, I’d have thought she was a good person from start to finish!”
“It’s terrible to think about it in detail!”
The low discussion quickly and quickly grew into a cacophony of mockery of Clara.
Master Guan took his handbag and looked at the clear traces of perfume spilled on it, his entire face as black as the bottom of a pot.
Even Guan Jiming, unhappily lifted his eyebrows.
“Maya, how do you explain this?”
Clara was speechless for a moment, she had never thought that Jenny Jing would be so thoughtful that even the evidence she had concealed so well would be discovered.
Therefore, no words were thought out at all.
She fidgeted for a moment, Jenny saw that she had nothing to say and sneered, “You put this butterfly toy in your bag, always looking for an opportunity to make a move on An An, but you never thought that you would accidentally spill the perfume, resulting in the smell of the scent staining the top.
After the incident, you were afraid that we would find out, so you threw the butterfly into Xiaoyu’s room, trying to frame her, in order to wash away your own guilt, but did not think that the evidence was already left on it, not at all you can casually wash away.
What else do you have to say about it now that it’s over?”
Clara’s face was pale.
She looked at Jenny and then at Master Guan and explained in a trembling voice, “Grandfather, I, I didn’t harm An’an, I have no grudge against her, why would I harm her?”
Her faintly trembling voice, her white face, and her soft, pitiful appearance suddenly caused Master Guan to frown, his face flashing.
Old Mrs. Cen knew that Master Guan would definitely be partial to Clara.
So immediately he said, “So how do you explain this butterfly and the pushing of Ann into the water?”
Clara hesitated for a moment before whispering, “I admit, this butterfly, I did bring it here, ready to tease An An, but I swear, I have absolutely no malice!”
Someone said sarcastically, “Why is it so contradictory to say there’s no malice when you’ve already admitted it?”
Xu Hui barely smiled and said helpfully beside her, “Maybe Clara really does have some compelling reason to bite the bullet, and I hope you all won’t speculate until you’ve heard what she has to say.”
The man saw that Xu Hui had opened her mouth, so it was hard to say anything else and could only shut up.
Only then did Clara continue: “At that time, I took the butterfly over there, originally wanted to tease her a bit, and then gave her the toy.I didn’t think Ann would accidentally fall in after chasing her to the pool and I was so scared that I subconsciously tried to reach out and pull her in, but in the end it was too late and I couldn’t hold her.
When I saw Ann fall into the water, I was shocked and scared, and I was going to go down and save her, but those people outside heard the noise and all of a sudden they came around.
I was afraid that you would say that I pushed her down on purpose and got carried away in a moment of confusion, but then I was afraid that you would misunderstand me and blame me, so I put the butterfly toy in Rainy’s room.
I’m sorry, I was wrong, I know I shouldn’t have done it, I really did it because I was scared and I didn’t mean to hurt Ann.”
Clara cried out in tears.
But few of the guests present, except Master Kwan, sympathized with her.
Even the eyes that looked at her were filled with contempt.
After all, she was the one who had just verbally urged the maid, Rain, to know her mistake and be brave enough to admit her guilt.
He also faked it and helped Xiao Yu plead with Master Guan to gain favor for himself.
It’s scary to think about someone like that, if she does end up getting away with it and no one ever finds out the truth!
Therefore, naturally, everyone expressed their contempt for Clara.
Biden Lu was already aware of the truth, and when Jenny Jing stepped in to speak for Xiao Yu, he guessed about who the real culprit was.
Only since one person had already stepped forward, he naturally wouldn’t say anything more.
Master Lu and Old Mrs. Cen were surprised, but after hearing the truth, they only felt shocked and angry.
I just hate to tear Clara apart.
After all, Clara and Jenny Jing’s previous grudges were there, and the two elders originally didn’t treat her well, seeing as she was now Master Guan’s granddaughter, they didn’t care about anything.
I didn’t think she’d go so far as to attack a child!
The old man Lu said in a deep voice: “Lao Guan, this is your granddaughter, I will not say anything else, An An is the only child of our Lu family, usually who is not pampered and protected, today suffered such a big scare, not that I am cautious and calculating, it is because the child can not stand this kind of bullying, what should be done, you say it yourself!”.
Master Guan’s face was also ugly.
He never thought that this matter would end up on Clara’s head.
But in front of so many people, it’s not like he blamed Clara on the spot.
After all, it was his granddaughter that he had gone to such great lengths to find, and everyone knew that today’s birthday banquet was ostensibly to give him his birthday, but in reality, it was to formally introduce Clara’s identity to everyone.
If he embarrassed Clara here in public, it would be no different than punching himself in the face.
So, Master Guan said with a heavy face, “This matter is indeed Clara’s fault, I will make her apologize to you personally.”
I said, and gave a wink to Clara.
Clara even went forward and cried, “Sister, I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have teased Ann like that, I saw her fall and ran away because I was afraid, I was wrong, I’m really sorry.”
Then, turning to Ann, she said, “Ann, Auntie didn’t mean to hurt you, Auntie just wanted to play a joke on you, and now that I know I was wrong, can you forgive Auntie?”
I have to say, if Clara did pull down and apologize to a child, that scene would be very generous indeed.
At least, in one way or another, watching her whisper in the face of this mother and daughter is a source of pity and sympathy for some.
Sure enough, some of the men present soon spoke for her.
“Mrs. Lu, it’s true that Second Miss didn’t mean it either, seeing as the child is also fine and we’re all relatives, why don’t we just forget about it.”
“Yes, apologies have been made, so let’s forgive them!”
“Today is a day of celebration after all, so why don’t we all just relax and stop fussing.”
“At least give our old birthday boy, Master Guan, some face.”
Old Master Guan similarly looked at Jenny with expectant eyes.
He knew that An’an was now Jenny’s daughter, even if Master Lu and Old Mrs. Cen said it didn’t count.
It had to be a nod to Biden Lu and Jenny Jing.
Jenny sat there with his head slightly lowered, playing with a ring on his hand and smiling grudgingly.
“Does Master Guan think that an apology is really the answer to such a matter?”
Speaking again, there was already some dissatisfaction in his tone.
“So what do you want?”
“Heh, what can I do?Just on a case-by-case basis, since the maid has just been identified as the murderer, she will have to be handed over to justice, and anyone else, of course, will be treated equally.”
The atmosphere in the room changed instantly.
Everyone looked at Jenny with a hint of oddness.
Who was that maid, and who was Clara?
If she was really handed over to the judicial authorities, then the birthday banquet that Master Guan was hosting today would be a complete joke!
Regardless of where the Guan family’s face was put, it was well known that Master Guan intended to betroth Clara to the Gu family’s young master.
If she does go to justice and goes from a minor mistake caused by a family conflict and a child’s ignorance to a serious, serious case of attempted murder, will the Koo family still want her?
Master Guan was already livid.
The landlord and the old lady, both sat on one side and did not speak.
But in his heart, he had already secretly given Jenny a thumbs up.
They were, after all, friends with Old Master Guan, and at this time, it was not good to personally embarrass the other party.
And the age is there, so if they pursue it too far, it will inevitably look like they are bullying the little ones and getting their way.
But Jenny is different.
Jenny was An An’s nominal mother, and a younger generation, and could have asked for an explanation from Master Guan in both reason and sense.
Master Guan stared at her in exasperation, helpless to justify himself, and couldn’t find a single rebuttal in a half-hearted manner.
Only then did Clara completely panic.
“Sister, I didn’t mean to, I really didn’t mean to cause Ann to fall into the water, I know, you hate me, after what happened today, you must hate me to death!
But after all, today is also Grandfather’s birthday banquet, so can’t you forgive me for once for Grandfather’s sake?”
Rao Ning had seen many times how shameless Clara was, but at this point, he still had to admire the thickness of her cheek.
She tsked and snickered, “Clara, you keep saying you didn’t do it on purpose, but do you have any proof that you really didn’t intentionally push An An into the water?Do you have evidence that you were actually trying to pull her at the time, rather than push her?”
Clara’s face turned pale!
Master Guan suddenly slapped the table with a bang.
His gaze was cold and stern as he looked at Jenny and said in a deep voice, “The blame for causing the little girl An’an to suffer today, this is a crime that our Guan family has never wanted to shirk, but that doesn’t mean that others can slander our Guan family at will!
Even if there’s no evidence that she tried to save anyone, there’s no evidence that she tried to kill anyone!So it’s better to be cautious about some of the things you say on faith!”
Jenny’s face also sank.
However, without waiting for her to speak, Biden Lu had already spoken first.
“Isn’t it just a matter of believing what you say and having the police come and investigate?I know Grandpa Guan is protective of people, but your granddaughter is a treasure, is my daughter not a blade of grass by the side of the road?”
