Chapter 270: Proving My Innocence with Death
Atlas Studios Atlas Studios
Wen Haowen was astounded by the articles on the newspapers and magazines. He felt cheated as all the people were discussing about him, laughing at him secretly, saying that he married a woman who was abandoned by others and raised someone else’s daughter.
Anger, bitterness, rage… all kinds of emotions overwhelmed him, causing him to lose his mind.
“Ning Shuqian, you b*tch!” Wen Haowen tore up the newspaper in his hands angrily and smashed the objects in the room randomly.
Ning Shuqian entered the room at this moment. A glass bottle was thrown right at her forehead before she could react. The pain was like water drowning her as warm blood oozed out from her forehead and flowed down from her cheek to her neck.
“Hao… Haowen!” She looked at Wen Haowen, confused.
“B*tch! Look what you’ve done!” Wen Haowen was furious to see her acting innocent like this as he was captivated by such expression before. He grabbed a magazine and threw it at Ning Shuqian.
The magazine wasn’t very heavy, but it was aimed at her face. The thin page scratched her cheek, leaving a red mark. She cried out in pain.
“Drug Addict Shen Mengting Is The Niece Of Madam X From A Noble Family!!!!” The shocking title was printed in bold letters.
Below was a giant photograph of her visiting Shen Mengting at the police station!
Ning Shuqian staggered and flipped the magazine with her trembling hand. She saw a yellow subtitle on one of the pages: Was it because of her old flame that she paid special attention?
Pupils contracting uncontrollably, she fell to the ground. “No, this is not true. It’s impossible!”
How could it be like this? She wiped Ms. Zhang and Shen Mengting’s past clean when she helped them settle down. She even got new identities for them. It was impossible that it would be found out.
What was this about, really? Did Shen Mengting sell her out? No… it was impossible. Shen Mengting was in the police station at that time. And that honest girl even risked her life just to lead Wen Xinya to drink the drugged cocktail. Moreover, she reassured Shen Mengting that she would send her abroad after this. It was impossible for Shen Mengting to betray her.
Ning Shuqian’s eyes opened wide with hatred. Wen Xinya… It must be Wen Xinya.
She crawled towards Wen Haowen and kneeled beside him. She held his legs tight and cried her heart out. “Haowen, please believe me! This newspaper article isn’t true! It’s not real! You must believe me!”
Wen Haowen kicked Ning Shuqian away, so furious that he lost his mind. He glared at Ning Shuqian and said, “B*tch! Did you see your old flame behind my back? For how long? Did you sponsor him with my money?”
Ning Shuqian shook her head constantly, crawling on the ground and shivering uncontrollably. She cried inconsolably and said, “No, Haowen. I didn’t. You’re the only man I love. Please trust me.”
However, Wen Haowen didn’t believe her. Once the seed of suspicion had been planted, nothing could stop it from growing. He felt like he was strangled by numerous vines. He struggled violently, but it was driving him crazy. “No? You provide financial assistance to the sister and niece of your old flame. She lives in the best nursing home and her daughter is taking drugs. You dare to say no?”
Ning Shuqian stared at Wen Haowen, tears trickling down the corner of her eyes. “Haowen… I really didn’t see that man. Ms. Zhang is my friend who helped me during my most difficult time. Now that she has depression and her daughter dropped out of school, what kind of person would I be if I don’t help her?”
Wen Haowen’s heart softened a little, but the vines of suspicion were still growing. “If this is the case, then why did you do it behind my back? Now everyone knows about it. They’re laughing at me, saying that I married a woman who was abandoned and raised not only someone else’s daughter but his whole family. How embarrassing!”
Ning Shuqian had nothing to say and kept crying.
Wen Haowen slapped her in the face and said, “B*tch! Have you lost your tongue? Feeling guilty? Got nothing to say?”
Ning Shuqian shook her head constantly. Head spinning, she wanted to vomit. “I didn’t. Haowen, I really didn’t do that. Please believe me…”
Listening to Ning Shuqian’s repeated words, Wen Haowen flew into a rage. “No… Do you think I’ll believe you? Ning Shuqian, don’t treat me like an idiot. If you don’t love him, why did you keep his daughter after he abandoned you?”
Ning Shuqian crawled towards Wen Haowen and looked up at him with tears in her eyes. “Haowen, you know me. I wanted to die when I found out that I was pregnant. It was you who stopped me and said that you would take care of me. I thought that you didn’t mind my past, but you still do.”
What Ning Shuqian said made Wen Haowen unable to refute. Ning Shuqian was his first love, and they were madly in love. When they met again, Ning Shuqian’s poor experience triggered his chauvinism. Guilt and past love overwhelmed him. And Ning Shuqian’s gentleness and obedience to him gave him the pleasure of taking control.
Wen Haowen sneered and said, “You should be sorry. Don’t make it look like I owe you. Who are you? You’re lucky that I married you. What else do you want?”
At this moment, Ning Shuqian finally realized Wen Haowen’s selfishness. She used to flaunt her happiness in front of Mo Yunyao like a winner, but the pitying look on Mo Yunyao’s face back then was like a hard slap on her face.
“Haowen, you’re the only man I love. If only death can prove my innocence, then… ” She paused and closed her eyes. Two drops of tears ran down her face.
Before Wen Haowen could react, Ning Shuqian knocked her head against the wall. Splashes of blood bloomed on the white wall.
