Translator: Lonelytree Editor: Millman97
"Big Sister Xia, what should we do now? There are already people here to detain you, Yan Lu and the guys are trying their best to stall them!" Munan said anxiously. For various reasons, Munan still had great trust in Xinghe at a time like this. With her brilliance, she should definitely have a solution.
Xinghe shook her head. "I have no idea what to do either. I didn't expect Saohuang would make such a big sacrifice to frame me."
Indeed, Saohuang had made a giant sacrifice. He had made his comrade a sacrificial lamb just to frame them…
In a way, he sure did think a lot of them.
"You're also at a loss? But we don't come up with something soon, they'll take you away. We cannot allow that to happen, who knows what will happen to you in custody," Munan said worriedly.
Xinghe looked at him and said calmly, "Don't only worry about me, you will also be in trouble. They're coming after me to get to the Xi family. Even though your name was cleared last time, it is no guarantee that you will not get dragged into this mess again."
Munan was not worried about that.
"Don't worry, we can figure that out later. The key thing now is you, your name has appeared directly on the list, your suspicion will not be cleared so easily. It is our family who have dragged you into this mess, what if something happened to you, how could we sleep at night?"
Xinghe consoled him, "Don't worry, this is not the end of the world. I'll cooperate with them for now and we'll try our best to clear the suspicion. Let's not forget, we still have Mubai to rely on."
Munan understood what she meant. He said happily, "That's right, we can still rely on Big Brother. If he has found some information on his side then your name will be cleared. But… Big Brother has found nothing even though he has utilized so many of his assets. I'm afraid that when he does find something, it'll already too late."
"That's the only choice we have. If all else fails, then…" Before Xinghe could finish, they saw a group of police walking her way. Yan Lu and the rest followed and they looked at her with concern in their eyes. The group eventually stopped before them.
The leading officer said authoritatively, "Xia Xinghe, you're suspected to be involved in an international case of military munitions thefts. You're under arrest, please follow us now."
"Are you people deaf‽" Yan Lu scolded, "We've already told you, Miss Xia has spent the past few weeks in the military camp, she has not left the compound, so how can she be involved in this smuggling case? Miss Xia is also not in need of money, this is such an obvious set up!"
"That's right. All of us can be her witness," Gu Li added. The rest of the camp vouched for Xinghe as well but the leading officer ignored all of them.
"Your words will not change my mind! All we know is that Xia Xinghe's name appeared on the list, that means she is a suspected criminal. Furthermore, she doesn't need to leave the camp, she only needs to move her fingers. I hear that Xia Xinghe is very good with computers, right?"
Munan narrowed his eyes. "What do you mean by that?"
The officer replied coldly, "According to our investigation, this crime syndicate has been operating and committing their crimes through the use of internet." 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
