Chapter 316: Please Believe Me (14)

That is why when Gu De Shou’s phone call comes, Zhuang Nai Nai is jerked awake.  She hastily searches for her phone before warily accepting the call.  “Hello, who is it?” asks Zhuang Nai Nai with a hoarse voice, sleepy.

“It is me, Qing Yan.  Your father,” she can hear Gu De Shou anxiously saying.

Zhuang Nai Nai’s head is still muddled as she snappishly says, “En, what is it?”

Just what is so urgent for him to be calling her so late at night?

Gu De Shou ignores the bite inside her voice before aying, “Nai Nai, Di Hao has sued us over plagiarism.  You must help the company suppress this matter, our company is relying solely on the release of this collection. I invested everything into it, if they win the lawsuit, our company is ruined!”

Only allowed on

Zhuang Nai Nai slowly opens her eyes when she hears that.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

The dark room is casted by dim golden light, giving it an eerie glow.

She calms herself down as she slowly processes what Gu De Shou has said.  Any trace of sleepiness has gone by now.

In the end, she cannot stop herself from smiling mockingly.

Gu De Shou finally knows to be nervous?

Did he see this coming back then, when he asked her to steal Di Hao’s draft?  Her heart turns cold.  Or perhaps, he already planned to ask for her help, even back then.

She blinks before coldly saying, “What does it has anything to do with me?”

Gu De Shou seems stunned when he hears that.  He remains quiet for a moment, “Qing Yan, I know that you and your Zhuang Mama are really close.  She has been really ill lately and keeps asking to see you.  Once this matter is over, I will take you to see her abroad.”  The way he coaxes her makes her heart tightens.

After video-chatting with her mother, she actually becomes more worried for her.  Is she alright; is she scared to be there all by herself; is she lonely?

She grips her phone, her heart turning even colder.  Ever since she meet her father again, all he ever does is to threaten her, to make full use of her as though she is an object.

Zhuang Nai Nai suddenly loses the ability to breathe. 

She really does not want to give in; but what will become of her mother?

And then, she begins to think.  Why are they being accused of plagiarism on the first place?

“Were the designs that you gave the manufacturer the ones that I gave you?” asks Zhuang Nai Nai.

“Yes,” says Gu De Shou.

Zhuang Nai Nai cannot believe this.  She is the one who came up with those designs, why are they said to be plagiarized?

“Send me the designs that you gave the manufacturer,” says Zhuang Nai Nai.

Gu De Shou nods on the other line, “Alright.”

Not long later, Gu De Shou sends the designs to her phone.  “I am not very sure actually, I handed it all to your mother.  Look at the designs, are they the ones that you gave us?”

A set of sketches is displayed on Si Zheng Ting’s screen.  The sketches are exactly the same as the ones Ji Chen sent him.

He narrows his eyes when he hears Gu De Shou’s words; he finds it hard to even breathe.  A man who has never feared anything waits for her answer anxiously.
