Episode 22

(Police station)

"Mandy, do you really have no idea... how my grandma got injured?" Aron asked, skeptically. 'Since Mandy doesn't want to let it go, I need to tell her what Becky did to Grandma,' Aron thought to himself.

Mandy narrowed her eyes with a bit of anxiety when she heard Aron's tone. Of course she knew what had happened to Joanna, but she had to keep pretending to be unaware of it because she didn't want them to cancel the wedding. As for the wedding... she was unwilling to give up on it.

"Isn't Isla responsible for your Grandma's injury? What does Becky have to do with it? Don't try to change the subject," Mandy answered.

"I never said that Becky was involved in my grandma's injury. Why would you assume that?" Mandy's ambiguous defense was shot down by Aron. The only thing she could rely on was her strength to pester others.

"I..." Mandy muttered. After a long pause she continued, "I don't really care about that. Are you going to marry Becky or not?"

"No, I am not," Aron replied straightforwardly. "Mandy, we won't be pressing charges against Becky for what she did to my Grandma. I won't ask you to return the bride-price. I have even saved your family's face at the press conference. I have done more than I should have, for your family, but if you keep coming at us like this, I'll be forced to take drastic measures against you."

"You..." Mandy stammered. Once she realized that she couldn't persuade Aron, she turned to Mike and Joanna. "You know what kind of girl Becky is. She would never do such a terrible thing. The wedding preparations are almost done; we can't call off the wedding now. Please help me persuade him not to act so rashly."

"You flatter us," Mike responded. He got annoyed at the thought of being cheated by Becky's fake innocence. "Mrs. Zhao, marriage is an important commitment, to Aron. Now that he doesn't have feelings for Becky, we shouldn't interfere with his decision. Since the cancellation of their wedding has already been announced publicly at the conference, we should let it go as well. As of today, we will have nothing to do with you. If we ever meet again, I think it would be better not to greet each other."

"You... Now you're intimidating me because I am at a disadvantage. I won't forget this," Mandy said angrily. "We are one of the richest and most influential family in Y City. You will regret treating us like this," Mandy threatened.

"I'm not a coward. If you choose to retaliate, I will willingly face anything you throw at me and my family," Aron responded resolutely. "But right now...
the most important thing is to find Becky and bring her back."

Besides, Becky was a girl. It wasn't safe for her to be outside during late hours.

Aron feared that Becky might get into trouble.

"It doesn't matter what happened before. Our biggest concern right now is to find Becky," Joanna broke in. She was also worried about Becky's safety.

'In any case, Becky had treated me kindly in the past,' Joanna thought to herself.

"Grandma, don't worry. I will bring her back," Aron assured Joanna. "Grandpa, please take Grandma to your room first. I will go and look for Becky now."

Aron's chances of finding Becky were quite slim. After all, he neither knew the places Becky had frequented, nor did he know any of her friends. Mandy was still complaining about the wedding. She didn't shut her mouth until Aron threatened to reveal Becky's evildoing to the public.

"Aron, be careful on the way!" Joanna reminded Aron before he left.

"Where does she often go?" Aron asked Mandy, as they walked out of the house together.

"How would I know that?" Mandy frowned with displeasure. "She barely has any friends here as she's lived abroad with you for many years. She usually goes to your house or just stays at home. Where else could she go?"

Aron wrinkled his forehead into a frown. At the moment of despair, he suddenly received a call from the police station.

He was told that Becky was at the police station. Immediately, he hung up the phone and sped to the police station together with Mandy.

When Mandy and Aron arrived at the police office, Becky was crouching in a corner. The police officer standing near her was taking down the statement of a wretched looking man. "When I walked into the bar, I saw her drinking alone. So I talked to her and proposed to buy her a drink. She didn't refuse my offer, and as soon as she got drunk, she insisted me to take her to a hotel. She said that her beloved man had dumped her and that she didn't want to stay celibate anymore.

I gave into her seduction; I took her to the hotel and slept with her," the man confessed.

"Sir, I swear, she came onto me first. I didn't force..." the man continued to explain to the policeman.

"Shut up! How could such an innocent girl hit on you?" The police officer berated.

As Mandy and Aron walked into the office, Becky raised her head. She glanced at Aron blankly and then lowered her head. After hearing the man's confession, Mandy finally understood what was going on. "Becky, what... happened to you?" Mandy strode to Becky and asked as her eyes filled up with tears.

"Mom, I'm fine," Becky replied calmly. She didn't want to show her fragile side to Aron. When she woke up and found herself lying naked next a stranger, she freaked out at first, and then composed herself. When the wretched man explained to her what had happened, she knew his words were true, but she still called the police because she wanted to punish him for stealing her virginity.

When the police officer asked her to contact her family, she didn't cooperate. Finally they checked her call records and found the number she had dialled frequently. That's why they called Aron.

"You foolish girl! Why didn't you come to me after you had suffered this? I would have helped you," Mandy said to Becky, looking heart-broken.

Becky smiled bitterly and thought to herself, 'What could she do? All she knows is how to harass others with unreasonable demands. I have already learned that from her. Now, I can't even get back with Aron anymore.'

"Are you Becky's family?" The police officer asked, turning to Aron and Mandy. "Sir, I am Becky's friend. May I ask what's going on?" Aron walked up to the policeman, when he saw Mandy speaking to Becky.
