Chapter 178 – A hundred mouths can’t be refuted (2)
If she were to admit to this charge, Su Luo knew it would not be as simple as just being driven out of Su Manor.
According to Madam Su’s methods, how could she let Su Luo live?
Furthermore, carrying this type of charge, how could it sound well? Su Luo was not an idiot, she naturally would not admit to it.
When she had acted on this matter, she had clearly understood and envisioned all the causes and effects step by step. However, she simply could not have imagined that Madam Su would insert herself into this matter from another direction. To the extent that it had made this simple matter unexpectedly more complex.
Anyway it didn’t matter, she wanted to properly contend with Madam Su to take a look at the latter’s abilities.
“I didn’t do it, how would I admit to it? Admit to what?” Su Luo was neither servile nor overbearing, her expression was tranquil and calm.
“Still a dead duck, being reluctant to admit to your mistake!” On the contrary, Su Zian was so infuriated that he started to laugh. “Good, good, good! Since you are so reluctant to admit to your mistake, then let the witness approach. Let’s see how you will object!”
“Come, let Mr. Mo approach!” Su Zian’s cold and sober gaze stared at Su Luo. His eyes were full of murderous intent that was almost about to overflow.
Mr. Mo was about fifty years old, clothed in a medium-classed light garment. He had a sharp mouth and monkey cheeks, a pair of eyes that spun and darted around, giving off a shrewd light.
Allowing this type of man to testify? Cynical light flashed through Su Luo’s eyes.
“Mr Mo, what happened that day, you should carefully tell us.” Su Zian, in order to ferret out the troublemaker Su Luo with regards to this matter, had become somewhat devilishly insane.
Mr. Mo was the overseer at the Mercenary Union, the release of assignments was managed by him.
Mr. Mo, gazed straight ahead, after deferentially giving Su Zian a salute, then clearly stated. “Reporting to the Venerable General, in accordance with the Mercenary Union’s rules, it’s not allowed to casually leak out a customer’s information. However, since it is the great general who demanded the investigation, the Mercenary Union would not dare do anything but to cooperate.”
“Okay, do not hesitate to speak, this general will naturally go greet your union’s president.” Su Zian waved his hands, indicating that he relax his mind and simply just speak.
“Yes.” Mr. Mo’s eyes dropped and respectfully said. “On that day, a lady came to issue a task with rewards. The great general also knows the Mercenary Union allows any task to be released. Only it remains to be seen if anyone dares to take it. When that lady’s task appeared, almost no one dared to take it. But a member in desperate need of money finally took on the task.”
“What was the task?” Su Zian duly asked.
Mr. Mo hesitated for a short time, he stole a glance at Su Luo, with a sly spirited appearance of wanting to speak but not daring to do so. Finally, as if he had decided at last, he determinedly, tightly clenched his fists. His expression became very serious and his tone following after became more cautious. “It’s…to tarnish Su family’s third Miss!”
“The lady that issued the task….who was it?!”
Su Zian gritted his teeth and asked Mr. Mo, emphasising every word. His pair of eyes which was bursting with a millennium-old ice that were like swords, was fixated on Su Luo.
He inwardly guessed, the unsophiscated Su Luo, in this kind of situation, no matter how she tried to disguise it, she was bound to lose her head out of fear.
However, what made him disappointed was not only did Su Luo not panic, but her expression was like before, without a ripple or a wave. That pair of pitch-black eyes even had a curious radiance.
What was she curious about?
Shouldn’t she be more apprehensive?
Su Zian was speechless.
Su Jingyu and Madam Su’s hearts inwardly became alert.
Originally they thought that Su Luo, this loathsome girl, would be easy to deal with, however now, it seemed as if it would be a little troublesome.
Su Luo’s eyes narrowed. She laughed grimly and repeatedly in her heart.
It really was indeed a bother to them. In order to deal with her they enacted such a brilliant play in front of her.
