Chapter 1144: The Story of Ling and Heng (407)
Although the woman was standing in the corner where the light was dim, from her figure and the bag in her hand, it still could be recognized that she was Feng Mingzhu. She seemed to be telling something to the waiter and then put a bank card in his hand.
Only watching the first two or three seconds of the video, Feng Mingzhu turned pale and hurried downstairs in an instant!
However, she slipped in that bathroom yesterday and then was beaten up by Mrs. Liu, when she rushed downstairs, the servant behind her was unable to catch up, and she suddenly fell when she was still four or five steps from the ground. She fell to the ground awkwardly and let out a scream, attracting everyone’s attention.
Grandfather Feng, Grandmother Feng, the elders of the LifFamily, and even the servants of the Feng family present, seemed to figure out something in an instant when they saw her panicked appearance. They all looked at her silently.
However, Feng Mingzhu didn’t seem to notice their looks. When the servant ran down and helped her up, she stood up with difficulty. Ignoring the pain in her leg, she pointed to the TV screen, sobbing, “Don’t watch it! Li Nanheng is framing me. He has long wanted to get rid of the shackles of the Feng family. In order to break with the Feng family, he can do anything. He is framing me…”
She said as she ran over, spread her arms to block the TV screen, and turned to stare at everyone with red eyes. “Don’t watch it! Stop!”
At first, everyone didn’t understand what Li Nanheng was going to show them, but Feng Mingzhu’s overreaction made Grandfather Feng and Grandmother Feng hesitate. They looked at her thoughtfully and guessed that it might be true that their granddaughter lied, so they remained silent, but now that the people of the Li family were here and Li Nanheng had also been called over all the way from China, what could they do now?
While Grandfather Feng and Grandmother Feng were looking at Feng Mingzhu suspiciously with a frown, the elders of the Li family had also figured out something from her agitated behavior. They looked at Li Nanheng who stood calmly on one side and then at Grandfather Feng and Grandmother Feng, who were sitting next to him on the sofa. “Since Nanheng said that there was a cause and we’re all here now, let’s finish watching the video first.”
“Don’t watch it! Don’t watch it… Nanheng is just framing me…” Feng Mingzhu’s eyes were bloodshot and she looked at Mr. Li helplessly. “Grandpa Li, trust me. You’ve gotta trust me…”
Mr. Li just glanced at her and after a few seconds of silence, he said, “Miss Feng is too emotional. Sit down and take a rest. Let’s finish the video first.”
However, as soon as Mr. Li said this, everyone knew that it was impossible to turn off the video. A servant walked forward and pulled Feng Mingzhu away. “Miss, don’t be too agitated.”
“Let go of me. Don’t watch it… All of you, stop…”
Feng Mingzhu was pulled aside and everyone’s eyes turned to the TV screen again.
After receiving the bank card from Feng Mingzhu, the waiter nodded and turned away, and then the video switched to another scene.
Feng Mingzhu did not enter the banquet hall after coming out of the corner but went to a lounge. Under the surveillance camera above the corridor, she looked around before entering the room and then pushed the door into the room.
After that, the camera did not switch anymore and stayed in the passage of this corridor. The waiting time was accelerated, but the monitoring time displayed on the upper right was visible. Less than half an hour later, that waiter supported a bald man with a beer belly, appeared in the corridor, and helped the man into the room where Feng Mingzhu was.
The waiter was obviously the one who got money from Feng Mingzhu half an hour ago and Li Nanheng didn’t appear in the video at all. This clip of video clearly showed that no matter what happened, Feng Mingzhu designed it herself and nobody framed her.
Feng Mingzhu also looked at the screen, finally realizing what happened to her at that time!
She turned her red swollen eyes to Li Nanheng with a jerk but the man didn’t even look at her.
Feng Mingzhu’s hands were clenched into fists. She bit her lip but couldn’t utter a single word at this moment, and she was seized by fear and despair in her heart.
“Miss…” The servant who was supporting her felt the coldness and trembling of her body and called her with worry and fear.
The surveillance video was still playing on the TV screen.
After the man was helped into the room and the waiter quietly left, the camera switched to the bank card in the waiter’s hand. The bank card was magnified on the screen. Others might not recognize it, but the Feng family people could recognize that the pink card was indeed owned by Feng Mingzhu, which was a small-value card that she used. Because of the Feng family’s high status in Los Angeles, there would be some special marks on the bank card they used, which they all could recognize. This couldn’t be wrong.
Then, the camera switched back to the door of the room where Feng Mingzhu was in. Suddenly the door was opened and everyone saw that Feng Mingzhu hurriedly ran out in a bath towel. Seeing her almost naked, the old people present all frowned. When they were considering whether to continue watching, Li Nanheng’s figure finally appeared in the video, but he was just standing outside the corridor. Obviously, this matter had nothing to do with him from the very beginning, but why did he appear outside? It puzzled everyone, so they continued to watch the video.
The more exciting scene was what happened after Mrs. Liu rushed up. Seeing Feng Mingzhu was suddenly stripped naked, the old people all closed their eyes. At this time, Grandfather Feng patted the coffee table hard. “That’s enough! Turn it off!”
Hearing her grandfather’s roar, Feng Mingzhu looked at the nightmare-like surveillance video and her body that was almost frozen became stiff, and she looked at Grandpa Feng imploringly.
