Pulling Shen Xi into the Water

Jiang Xue lowered her head.
She rolled her eyes and said, “Because, it’s because of my adoptive parents.
One of them is a drunkard, and the other is a gambler.
It’s because of the money they owe, and they forced me to borrow money to pay back the people they owe, or else those people would chop off their hands and feet.
I had no choice.
At that time, I thought that they were my biological parents.
I was helpless.
How could I let my biological parents suffer like that?”

When the Jiang couple heard this, they were shocked.
They did not expect such parents to exist in the world.
They also did not expect Jiang Xue to be so filial.
If it were not for the fact that she had been swapped at birth, Jiang Xue would not have to suffer such an undeserved disaster.
Therefore, the couple began to feel guilt and deep heartache towards Jiang Xue.

When Jiang Xue saw that her parents’ expressions seemed to have softened, she immediately wrapped herself in the blanket and struggled to get up, kneeling on the ground, she kowtowed hard.
“I’m sorry for letting you guys down.
I’m sorry, I don’t know what I was thinking.
I can’t believe I actually embarrassed my own biological parents.
It’s all my fault, sob sob sob sob…”

Xia Chun could not hold it in any longer.
She hugged Jiang Xue and started to cry.
“It’s not your fault, we don’t blame you.
You’re too kind, that’s why you were bullied.
You’re a good person, how could we blame you?”

Jiang Lun held his anger in his heart when he saw this.
He had nowhere to vent and was burning up.

Only then did Jiang Xue free her mind to think about Shen Xi.
She was supposed to come at 2 o’clock.
Why did it take Shen Xi so long to come over? She could not help but suspect that all of this was Shen Xi’s doing.

Jiang Xue raised her red and swollen eyes and questioned Shen Xi.
“Xi, are you the one who harmed me? You were the one who said that you would come over at two in the afternoon.
I thought that you would be here with your parents, so I came to see you.
I didn’t expect to encounter such a thing.
Did you conspire with your parents to set me up? In order to pin this usury on me.”

Hearing this, Jiang Lun seemed to have suddenly found a punching bag.
His gaze was like a sharp blade as he shot a glance at Shen Xi who was standing at the side.

Shen Xi frowned, feeling wronged, she said, “I don’t even have my parents’ contact information.
How can I work together with them to set you up? You were the one who told me to come here to meet my parents.
If I had my parents’ contact information, why would I go through you? If you don’t believe me, you can check for yourself.”

Shen Xi opened the message that Jiang Xue had sent to her in the morning.
The Jiang couple took a look and found that it was indeed so.

Jiang Xue didn’t believe that Shen Xi had no part to play in this.
She continued to ask, “Then why did you arrive so late? You clearly left early in the morning.
Did you actually arrive early and deliberately watch me go in?”

“I really didn’t.
I just wanted to go to the teahouse that I liked.
It’s expensive there.
When I go back to live with my biological parents, I probably won’t have the chance to go to such a high-end place again.
And you said my parents were poor, so I wanted to take them there to enjoy together.
I also ordered three drinks and asked the waiter to deliver them to my tea room at three o’clock.”

At this point, Shen Xi’s expression showed a little embarrassment and discomfort, as if she was embarrassed.

When the Jiang Lun couple heard this, they didn’t think Shen Xi was lying.
Shen Xi had liked to read books and do her homework in the teahouse before.
Previously, whenever they were free, they would go there to pick Shen Xi up and bring her home.
It was true that Shen Xi wouldn’t be able to afford to go there anymore in the future.

Shen Xi glanced at the Jiang couple, seeing that the two of them did not make a sound, she continued to look at Jiang Xue and said, “It’s just that last night, when I thought about meeting my parents today, I could not sleep well.
I fell asleep in the teahouse just now, so I came late.
If you don’t believe me, you can ask the staff in the teahouse.
I’ve been in that tea room the whole day.
“Also, you can look at my taxi app.”

Shen Xi explained anxiously.
She took out the taxi app from her phone and showed her ride from the teahouse to the hotel just now.

Jiang Lun looked at the time on the screen.
It was indeed 2:15 p.m., and she only arrived at 2:35 p.m.

Jiang Xue didn’t want to believe it.
She wanted to make Shen Xi take the blame for this matter.
Only then could she be the victim and gain the Jiang couple’s sympathy, so she continued, “Maybe you came to set it up in the morning.”

Jiang Lun didn’t want to argue meaninglessly here.
He said coldly to Jiang Xue, “Put on your clothes.
I’ll go check the surveillance cameras.”

Jiang Lun wanted to find a legitimate reason to get angry at Shen Xi.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t be able to calm down the anger in his heart.

Shen Xi followed Jiang Lun to the surveillance room.
Jiang Xue and Xia Chun followed him.
