Su Xingfu waved his big hand and ordered, “Call the family doctor over to check what’s in the bird’s nest soup.”
He knew that his two daughters had never gotten along. Su Bei, the daughter of his first wife, was the spoiled one, while Su Huixian, the daughter of his second wife, was more tolerant. Only with solid evidence could they solve this conflict.
The family doctor soon arrived with professional tools and began examining the soup.
“Huixian, give me your phone,” Su Xingfu added.
“Su Bei knocked it to the ground! I haven’t touched it until now,” Su Huixian cried pitifully.
Su Xingfu picked up the phone from the ground and opened the call log. It showed that a call had been made around ten minutes ago, and the time matched what Su Bei had claimed.
Su Bei took a sideways glance at the call log. She wanted to see how Su Huixian could deny it with this solid evidence.
Su Xingfu dialed the unknown number that the call had been made to. Soon, an automated voice said, “Please press 1 for balance inquiries, and press 2 for the payment…”
Su Bei’s pretty face darkened. How could this be? Just now, Su Huixian had called someone right in front of her eyes and asked some bodyguards to come over to rape her, but she had snatched the phone away before Su Huixian could finish her words. Therefore, it was impossible for the call log to have been tampered with.
However, the call log clearly proved that the last call had been made to the telecommunications company.
Everyone looked at Su Bei with suspicion and disappointment.
Su Huixian cried bitterly, as if she had suffered a great grievance.
Su Bei clenched her fists tightly. How could it be? Something didn’t add up.
Fortunately, the family doctor could be trusted, so she turned to him and asked, “Doctor Wen, what have you found?”
“Miss Bei, there is nothing strange in the bird’s nest soup,” Doctor Wen replied softly.
“But it tasted strange when I ate it. And Su Huixian even admitted that she drugged it…” Back then, Su Huixian had spoken in such a cold tone that the memory was clearly etched in Su Bei’s mind.
“There’s really nothing strange in it, Miss Bei,” Doctor Wen emphasized again.
“Su Bei, I told you, I’ve never wanted to hurt you.” Su Huixian still looked aggrieved, immediately gaining sympathy from everyone who saw her.
Du Luo also looked at her gently to comfort her.
Compared with Su Bei, who was poised and elegant even in this situation, Su Huixian looked pitiful.
Finally, an idea flashed through Su Bei’s mind.
She suddenly understood everything! From the beginning, there had been no drug in the soup. Su Huixian had pretended to make that phone call. She had orchestrated the whole situation to trick Su Bei into accusing her, so that when the truth was revealed, Su Bei would be unable to defend herself, and would lose everyone’s trust.
Turning around to look at her father, Su Bei explained anxiously, “Dad, I know what’s going on. Su Huixian did all this on purpose to…”
Before Su Bei could finish, Su Xingfu slapped her across the face.
Everyone was slightly shocked by the slap.
The atmosphere turned awkward and uncomfortable.
Su Huixian, who was standing behind Su Xingfu, raised her chin and flashed a triumphant smile at Su Bei.
However, Su Bei was not in the mood to look at Su Huixian. She covered her burning cheek and looked at her father in disbelief.
