SEVEN YEARS WITHOUT YOU
(Young Master Su’s Declaration of War (1)
The overhead projector played the entire scene, from the moment Huo Mian entered to the moment she left.
The video was no more than 15 minutes, but the scene got everyone's hearts caught in their throats…
"This… I thought this video was deleted." Zhou Guangming was flabbergasted.
Dennis Wu smiled, "This is the full video of what happened. If someone suspects that we altered the footage, feel free to ask an expert witness to testify. As you can see from this video, my client's violent actions were purely out of self-protection. Let me ask you, under such circumstances, with so many men around her, what else was a woman like her supposed to do? If she didn't rightfully defend herself, she would have been physically violated. Therefore, her actions should constitute as justified self-defense."
"Court is adjourned for 15 minutes, we'll continue after then." Everyone relaxed after the judge announced this.
Zhu Lingling immediately walked over and handed Huo Mian a bottle of water.
"Have some water, it'll help with the nerves."
"Nerves? Nah, I'm just chilling." Huo Mian laughed slightly.
"I think we're going to win, girl. Do you know who the lawyer your husband hired is?"
"That uncle? I don't know him, who is he?" Huo Mian gulped down water as she secretly peeked at the old man organizing documents not far from her.
"Uncle? Hahaha, did you really think he was just an ordinary old man?" Zhu Lingling was speechless.
Gao Ran smiled but didn't say anything…
"What's happening? Why are you looking at me like that? Who is he? Why are you guys being so cryptic?"
Huo Mian thought that Qin Chu had found her a slightly more experienced lawyer, and never even assumed that he would be a person of significance.
Zhu Lingling made Gao Ran tell Huo Main everything he had just told Lingling about Dennis Wu.
Huo Mian was instantly petrified…
"So… that kind-looking old man, is the God-like American Chinese attorney, Dennis Wu?" Huo Mian asked, flabbergasted.
"Yup." Gao Ran and Zhu Lingling both nodded.
"Oh my god…" Huo Mian was so shocked that she didn't know how to describe her emotions.
"Um… asking him to defend me must have cost a lot, right?" Huo Mian asked, feeling bad for her husband.
Gao Ran looked at her hopelessly. "Look at you, get yourself together. Your husband is so poor that he has nothing but money, what are you feeling bad for? Plus, a lawyer like Dennis Wu can't be hired with just money. This just proves how powerful your husband is."
"Okay, I'm shocked as well. No wonder he agreed so easily when I told him I didn't want GK's legal team to defend me. It's because he already found someone better," Huo Mian said as she bit down on her lips.
"So… having a husband like Qin Chu means that you literally don't have anything to worry about. You can walk sideways for the rest of your life if you want to." (TL: walking sideways is a metaphor for being able to do anything one wants without giving a sh*t)
"I'm not a crab, why would I want to walk sideways?" Huo Mian smiled.
During this break, Gao Ran secretly took a photo of Dennis Wu and sent it to Qin Chu via WeChat.
Gao Ran didn't have Qin Chu's WeChat, because Qin Chu, who put his wife before his bro, only had her on WeChat and no one else.
When they last saw each other, Gao Ran secretly used Qin Chu's phone to add himself on Wechat while Qin Chu was in the bathroom.
When Qin Chu found out, he wanted to delete Gao Ran, but Huo Mian persuaded him not to.
Therefore, in Gao Ran's point of view, being in Qin Chu's WeChat address book was more than glorious enough.
After all, aside from Huo Mian, the only other contact in Qin Chu's WeChat was Gao Ran himself.
"?" Qin Chu saw the photo but didn't know what Gao Ran meant, so he sent him a question mark.
The cold and indifferent reply completely complied with Mr. Qin's arrogant personality…
