Chapter 177 – A hundred mouths can’t be refuted (1)
Su Zian’s face was dignified, there was no sign of anger due to his position. His eyes were ice-cold without a trace of warmth. “Loathsome girl, what more do you have to say?”
Su Luo’s expression did not change, but her heart secretly became alert. Able to make Su Zian this angry, it really was not easy, but she really didn’t know what matter they were yelling about.
She had an indifferent and calm expression, and without any waves of alarm, asked. “Daddy, what are you angry about?”
To have done such a thing, and afterwards still able to use completely unfeeling and unsuspecting eyes to look at him! Su Zian furiously growled. “Speak! Your third older sister’s matter, wasn’t it caused by you?”
So it was Su Wan’s matter? Su Luo’s mind flashed with traces of misgivings. She remembered very clearly, when she started the fire, there weren’t any witnesses nor evidence to prove she did it. So her cheap father made a solemn vow and placed the criminal charges on her body. Could it be that he was scaring her?
Su Luo flashed a pair of bewildered pitch-black eyes, with a confused expression. “Third sister’s matter, how could I have done it? Daddy, you also couldn’t help looking at me with too high of a regard?”
Currently, she was weak but remained standing. Her brows were without a trace of guilty conscience and she looked at a loss. It also looked incredulous…She acted not too cold nor too hot, but just right.
Su Zian gave a heavy and cold grunt. With a scattering sound, he threw a stack of papers towards Su Luo where it rained over her!
The paper from Cheng Xin Tang (1) were sharp, its edges were as sharp as a knife. If not careful, her delicate cheeks would very easily be cut.
Su Luo avoided it without batting an eye and with poise, she picked up the scattered papers from the ground. She collected all of it together in her hand and flipped through it page by page.
Her happy and content expression, flipping through the pages of a book as if nobody was there…She took this place as if it was a library and not a court where cases were trialed!
Simply, simply so arrogant that no one else mattered!
Su Zian held back a breath full of anger in his chest, it couldn’t go up nor down. He really held it back until he was red in the face.
His pair of bell-shaped eyes unwaveringly stared at Su Luo.
After looking through it page by page, Su Luo held that stack of paper in her hands. She lifted her eyes and looked towards Su Zian, eyes sparkling with radiance. “Daddy, you trust the words on this report?”
“Humph!” Su Zian gave a heavy snort, “Now what more do you have to say?!”
He had already voiced his meaning very clearly. He believed in this investigation report and he had hundred thousands percent confidence in it.
Su Jingyu’s expression was indifferent, his treacherous eyes stared at Su Luo. His face was full of endless condemnation. “Su Luo! How could you do such a vicious and ruthless thing? Even if Wan’er was in the wrong, she is still your big sister! You did such a thing, which has already ruined the rest of Wan’er’s life. Haven’t you realized it?”
Su Luo’s gaze blandly shot towards Su Jingyu.
If he hadn’t said anything, she would’ve forgotten this older brother.
Madam Su who was nearby, tenderly and softly scolded: “Jingyu, how could you speak? Everything is to be decided by your father.”
Madam Su worriedly looked at Su Luo: “Luo Luo, don’t be afraid. This matter may have been started by somebody spreading rumors to create trouble. As long as you say what you know, your father would not treat you unjustly.”
Su Luo’s facial expression did not change, but she secretly sneered in her heart.
Madam Su had such a smooth-talking mouth.
Even though on the surface, she chided Su Jingyu and appeared to appease her. However, every word and every sentence did not deviate from her cheap dad. She deliberately tried to provoke his rage, just waiting for it to explode.
Masterful, she really was a master.
Su Zian indeed followed her expectations and heavily slapped his armrest. “Su Luo! Do you admit it or not!”
