She was not suspicious at all when she heard that her mother had gotten into a car accident, back then. After all, she thought that even though Ding Mengya said all those ugly words, she couldn’t possibly follow through with it, right?
Besides, the driver admitted everything himself, so there shouldn’t be any problem.
But now, after hearing what the police officer uncle had to say, her body unconsciously trembled.
She suddenly remembered what Ding Mengya had said. ‘….You are not afraid. But what about your mother?’
‘Will you believe me if I tell you that you and your mother will not be able to live in Beijing if I as much as move a finger?’
She felt as though something was choking her, rendering her breathless.
She swallowed heavily before grabbing the officer’s arm desperately. “Go and catch that person, uncle! She purposely tried to commit murder, aren’t you going to do anything about it?”
The officer looked at her for a moment before sighing, patting her in the arm, “These kind of things need solid evidence, little girl. The driver admitted to his crime. We kept asking him who the passanger was, but he kept playing dumb. I am telling you all these not to let you create trouble for me, but to tell you to be careful.”
The case had been settled and the driver had been sentenced to 7 years in prison, yesterday.
Didn’t this mean that the real culprit was getting off scot-free?
Zhuang Nai Nai went to the police station to search for that uncle again, after work. “Uncle, can you let me see the footage? I want to see if I can get anything out of it. Please. You know that someone is targeting us. I just want to know who it is.”
Since the officer couldn’t get rid of her, he ended up relenting and showing her the footage.
In the footage, the taxi was seen slowly approaching her mother from behind. When it got to her mother, it slowed down and stopped. The window of the taxi was rolled down and her mother stopped to look at the taxi.
The quality of the video was not good, but she could tell that her mother was exchanging words with someone inside the car. Just, she couldn’t tell what they were talking about.
And then, her mother turned around and walked away with her head held high.
The taxi’s window was rolled up before the taxi rushed towards her mother and hit her from behind.
After her mother was hit, the back door of the taxi was opened, as though someone was planning to get down. Then, it closed once again and the taxi sped away.
The trembling of her body became worse.
The person sitting at the backseat of the taxi was wearing a purple dress.
Ding Mengya was wearing purple dress when they met that very same day, in the same exact style!
Even though she could not see that person’s face, deep inside, she could tell that it was Ding Mengya.
She walked home, completely dispirited. She remembered her own words, ‘If anything happen to my mother, I will do everything I can to make sure that you are buried with her.’
She really wanted to rush to the Si Residence and die with Ding Mengya.
Now, she finally understood what helplessness felt.
