Fierce Ex-wife: President, Please Be Careful - Chapter 865
Chapter 865: Shameless B*tch (1)
“Miss…” the young man looked at Lu Shu’s pale face and felt even more uneasy. Just as he was about to say something, a servant suddenly ran over. He said respectfully to Lu Shu, “Miss, the master just called and asked you to come over. He said that he has something to discuss with you.”
When Lu Shu heard that Lu Xiangtian was looking for her, her heart skipped a beat. She instinctively wanted to reject him, but reality did not allow her to do so. She swallowed with difficulty. Lu Shu said in a hoarse voice, “I understand. I’ll go over right now.”
Lu Shu thought about it for a while, but she still felt that Lu Xiangtian must have found out something by asking her to go over now. How could she clear her name after she went over so that Lu Xiangtian would not blame her?
Lu Shu’s heart was in a mess, and even the surrounding pressure was far more stifling than usual.
When the car arrived at Lu Xiangtian’s residence, it was already close to noon. When the people in the house saw Lu Shu, they respectfully greeted her. Normally, Lu Shu would still put on a show, but today, she was deeply troubled. She only gave a perfunctory nod to those people along the way, then walked towards Lu Xiang’s study, leaving a group of servants to look at each other in dismay.
When Lu Shu entered the room, only Lu Xiangtian and the old Butler were present.
When he saw Lu Shu enter, Lu Xiangtian said flatly, “You’re back.” No one could tell whether he was happy or angry.
Lu Shu forced a smile at Lu Xiangtian and took the initiative to ask, “Dad, why did you call me here in such a hurry?”
Lu Xiangtian was still expressionless, but there was a hint of displeasure in his eyes. “Don’t you know why I called you here?”
The smile on Lu Shu’s face froze, and her eyes widened. “Dad… you…”
Lu Xiangtian looked at Lu Shu, and for some reason, he suddenly felt a little sick of her. That woman was clearly so tolerant and kind, but why was this daughter so cruel and jealous?
“Today, I went to look for Ms. Zhao.”
Lu Shu’s body trembled, but she still maintained a stiff smile. “Dad, why did you go to look for Ms. Zhao?”
Lu Xiangtian’s sharp gaze swept across Lu Shu. There was a hint of anger in his voice. “If I remember correctly, I told you before that the necklace on Ms. Zhao’s body looks very similar to the love token I gave your mother back then.”
Lu Shu’s expression changed slightly, but she quickly calmed down. She probed, “Dad, actually, I’ve been wanting to ask for a long time. I saw Ms. Zhao’s necklace that day, and it didn’t seem to be anything special. How can you be sure that it’s the one that you gave my mother back then?”
Lu Xiangtian fell silent. His usually cold and emotionless eyes were now tinged with a mix of emotions and grief. He stared blankly ahead as if he was looking at something, but also as if he wasn’t looking at anything at all.
The entire hall fell into a strange silence.
Lu Shu was startled. She tried her best to suppress the anxiety and uneasiness in her heart and couldn’t help but call out, “Dad…”
Lu Xiangtian seemed to have woken up from a dream. He sighed and said, “Of course I can confirm that the necklace belongs to your mother. Although that necklace isn’t very valuable, I spent all my savings and personally forged it for your mother back then. It’s the only one in the world, and it’s one of a kind.”
Lu Shu’s expression changed slightly, but she quickly returned to her original state. She smiled and said, “Since you have already confirmed it, why don’t you hurry up and get the necklace back? It’s the only thing that mother has left.”
Lu Shu’s words reminded Lu Xiangtian of Zhao Youlin’s adamant refusal to cooperate, and his expression darkened. “That Ms. Zhao seems to like that necklace very much and isn’t willing to give it up.”
Lu Shu pursed her lips when she heard that. A hint of scheming flashed across her eyes. “So, Dad, you went to her house several times to ask for it? Dad, this isn’t your style. I don’t know where that Ms. Zhao got that necklace from, but she didn’t even give you any face. She’s really too arrogant. Since she refused to do it the hard way, why are you being so polite with her? Just take the necklace back. It’s a token of love between you and mom. It was originally ours, wasn’t it?”
Who was Lu Xiangtian? How could he not understand the hidden meaning behind Lu Shu’s words, Lu Shu’s expression, which had softened slightly at the mention of her late wife, suddenly turned cold again. “You seem to have a lot of opinions about Ms. Zhao. When I went to look for her yesterday, I happened to run into a group of people who were looking for trouble with her…”
Lu Shu’s expression changed slightly, and she pretended not to understand. “Someone sought trouble with her? It seems that this Ms. Zhao has a knack for making enemies. How could someone be looking for trouble with her in broad daylight? Dad, are you alright?”
Lu Xiangtian looked at his daughter, who was still lying through her teeth, and wondered if what he felt was disappointment or something else. He just felt that this daughter was very different from the woman he knew.
Lu Xiangtian narrowed his eyes, his sharp eyes met Lu Shu’s for the first time in such a serious and ruthless manner. “I’m fine. What could possibly happen to me? Not only am I fine, I even brought back a few newborn calves who dared to pluck the fur from the tiger’s mouth. After having a good chat with them, guess what they said?”
Lu Shu had already roughly guessed where this was going, but she still pretended to be ignorant and asked in a low voice, “What… did they say?”
“They said that you asked them to do this, and their target is that Ms. Zhao.”
Lu Shu’s face turned pale as she met Lu Xiangtian’s slightly cold gaze. Her heart skipped a beat, and a cold glint flashed across her slightly lowered eyes.
“Dad, why would I send someone to harm Ms. Zhao for no reason? Those people you brought in must be deliberately framing me. You know that I’m still a police officer, so how could I break the law and do such a thing?”
Lu Xiangtian did not speak immediately. Instead, he stared at Lu Shu with his all-seeing eyes. He stared at Lu Shu until chills ran down her back and she felt guilty. Just then, he sneered. “Although you’re a police officer, you’re still my daughter.”
Lu Shu was shocked. Her expression changed several times before she finally took a deep breath and said in a deep voice, “Dad, I’m sorry. I didn’t expect you to be in the car. My only target is that woman.”
Lu Shu’s confession caused Lu Xiangtian’s eyes to flicker. “If I remember correctly, I’ve told you before this that Ms. Zhao still has the necklace that your mother left behind.”
“So what? Just because that woman has mom’s necklace, Dad, is that why you’re treating her differently? But Dad, do you know that woman is not worth what you’re doing to her? Do you know how shameless she is? She is a married woman, but she still wants to seduce another man’s husband. She is a shameless bitch! Bitch!”
