At this moment, Shen Mengting suddenly stood up. “I need to go out and take this call. It’s too loud in here, I can’t hear anything.”
“Mmm. Go ahead!” Wen Xinya saw Shen Mengting walking towards the back of the bar.
Shen Mengting went to the washroom. Her palm was covered in sweat and dirt as she washed her hands.
The ice-cold water relieved her anxiety. She put her fingers inside her mouth to induce vomiting then bent over the basin, puking non-stop.
Even the smelly gastric juice was vomited out. She turned on the tap to gargle and washed her face to calm down.
Her phone rang at this moment. Shen Mengting took it out and pressed the answer button. “Aunt Ning, I’ve brought Wen Xinya to Bird of Paradise as you required. Zhou Tianyu and Xu Tongxuan came with us. I ordered the Bird of Paradise for them all.”
Ning Shuqian, on the other side of the phone, was enjoying an essential oil massage at Floral Lingo Pavilion. “Well done. Wen Xinya this little b*tch is always cunning. Did she suspect anything?”
Shen Mengting quickly replied, “Aunt Ning, don’t worry. She didn’t suspect anything. She trusts me with all her heart ever since I blocked the hot soup for her. I suggested to come to Bird of Paradise today and she agreed.”
Ning Shuqian was exhilarated. She knew that it was easy for an honest person like Shen Mengting to gain trust from others. “All right. Did she drink the drugged cocktail?”
Shen Mengting tightened her grasp and said, “Yes. I was afraid that they were gonna suspect me, so I took the initiative to drink first. Wen Xinya followed me and drank some. I think I’ll just say that I had no idea about the drugged cocktail if they ask me later. Anyway, they won’t suspect me because all of us drank it.”
Shen Mengting’s words made Ning Shuqian very happy. She knew this girl was clever. “I’m sorry I made it difficult for you. There are a lot of white pills in the cocktail. You didn’t ask me and just drank that… If anything happens…”
Of course, Shen Mengting knew what was added to the cocktail. But she didn’t care because she wanted to gain trust from Ning Shuqian and Wen Xinya. “Aunt Ning, don’t worry. I’ve vomited it out already. The remnants of the drug are unable to cause addiction.”
Ning Shuqian said in a gentle tone, “Good girl. Sorry I made it difficult for you.”
“Don’t say that, Aunt Ning. I dropped out of school before. If it weren’t for you, I would never be able to study at Lan Feng Institute and my mother wouldn’t get treatments at the nursing house. You’re my benefactor. There is nothing wrong for me to do you such a small favor.”
Ning Shuqian raised her brow. “Please don’t say that. Your mother and I are old friends. I will not turn a blind eye when she needs help.”
Shen Mengting was touched and said, “Thank you, Aunt Ning!”
Ning Shuqian said, “I’ve already contacted the US college which Yuya is in. After this thing’s over, I’ll send you there. As for your mother, I’ll get someone to look after her at the nursing home.”
“Really?” said Shen Mengting, pleasantly surprised.
Ning Shuqian said, “Of course. I know that studying abroad is your dream, so I made some arrangements. You and Yuya can look after each other there.”
Shen Mengting wept with joy. “Thank you, Aunt Ning!”
“Right. You should leave the bar now. I’ve just called the police and notified some of the journalists I know. It would be bad if you’re caught by the police or photographed by the journalists.”
Shen Mengting said, “It’s okay, Aunt Ning. Even if I was caught, it’s my first time doing drugs. The maximum sentence is 15 days in prison. I’m a civilian, so I will be ignored even if this is reported. People’s attention will be on Wen Xinya and the other two girls. They are daughters of aristocratic families. A scandal like this will definitely create chaos.”
Ning Shuqian was pleased with her answer. “If it wasn’t for Wen Xinya going against me every time and kicking Yuya out of the Wen Family… I would not do that to her.”
Shen Mengting quickly replied, “Aunt Ning, I know you were forced to do this. Wen Xinya is a bully. She just beat the daughter of the Jiang Family today at the student council. I’ve never seen such an aggressive person like her.”
Ning Shuqian said a few words to Shen Mengting then hung up the phone.
In the social circle, every family would send their child overseas if they were involved in drug scandals. Yuya was kicked out of the Wen Family because of Wen Xinya, so she wanted to send Wen Xinya abroad.
In a minute, several police cars pulled over, and uniformed police officers dashed inside. Soon after, a group of journalists arrived at the scene.
The bar was a mess. People were running and screaming.
“Freeze! Don’t move. Knees on the ground!” The police threw a few guys onto the ground.
“Someone reported that a few daughters from wealthy families are taking drugs. All of you must come to the police station with me for investigation!” The officer then turned to his colleagues and said, “Search every inch of the bar!”
Shen Mengting just came out of the washroom. She was high and didn’t realize what was happening. She saw Wen Xinya sitting in front of the bar counter, so she ran towards her and pulled her to the stage. “Xinya, Xinya, let’s go and dance!”
But her arms seemed to be blocked by someone else, hindering her movements. She laughed and struggled. Staggering, she could barely stand.
Shen Mengting has already lost consciousness. She chuckled and giggled. “Xinya, Xinya, don’t pull me! I’m dizzy…”
The journalists were busy taking photos. The bar would be swarmed by them if the police didn’t block the entrance. They received an anonymous call informing them that Wen Xinya was taking drugs at this bar, so they hurried to the scene immediately.
Shen Mengting was caught by the police. Judging from her behavior, it was obvious that she just took drugs or was doped. It seemed that the anonymous report was true.
Shen Mengting struggled constantly, trying to grab Wen Xinya. “Xinya, why are they holding us? I wanna dance, I wanna sing, I wanna fly high…”
