Prove My Innocence
"What nonsense are you speaking?"
"Father, we both know what's really going on. Since you've already done it, why act like you're not involved?" Mo Ting's voice wasn't angry nor cold, in fact, it was quite casual. This was because he knew, if he was angry or cold, it would mean he still held hope for this man. So...
...his casual approach meant one thing.
"From now on, I will no longer have a father and you will no longer have a son."
"If this is how you treat your son, then I think it's better for us to be strangers...or even enemies."
Hearing this, Father Mo froze. He never expected that Mo Ting would go to such extremes. For the sake of Tangning, he actually chose to end their father-son relationship.
"Are you being serious?" Father Mo asked angrily.
"Do I look like I'm joking? From today onwards, you will get a taste of my methods. You will see, by hurting Tangning and I, how many people will be implicated," Mo Ting's voice slowly gained power. "By the way, I forgot to tell you: I barely show sympathy for others."
Before Father Mo could fully grasp the meaning of Mo Ting's words, he had already hung up the phone.
He originally wanted to use this incident to 'advise' Mo Ting not to stay with a woman like Tangning.
But, he never expected Mo Ting to know, from the start, who the culprit was behind the 'dirty scheme'.
What scheme? Did he really think it would work?
Father Mo did not take Mo Ting's words to heart. But, the next morning, all gossip about Tangning and her child, had completely disappeared.
This was because of what happened last night. A famous actress casually shared her opinion on Tangning's child and when Mo Ting found out, he ignored the fact that she was from a different agency, and immediately instructed Fang Yu to handle the matter. Firstly, he banned her from the industry, then he made her entire family unemployed. Overnight, she was flown overseas and forbidden to ever step foot into Beijing again.
Not only this. Through small channels within the industry, Mo Ting gave everyone a warning, "If you want to laugh at me, then do it to my face. If you want to share your opinion on the child in Tangning's stomach, I will immediately destroy you."
His words were firm...
The majority of people in the industry understood and acted accordingly. But, there was one person who wanted to test their luck. As a result, within one short night, they were left in an extremely sorry state.
That night, Hai Rui dealt with 3 artists consecutively; each with different levels of status, but all with loose lips.
One was sent overseas; another had their debts exposed and their legs broken by the debt collectors; and the last one had their house searched for possession of marijuana and was currently sitting in the police station.
With assistance from their agencies, these three artists were on the path to becoming superstars. But, because they stuck their nose in Tangning's business, they were now but fallen stars.
The most frightening thing was, everyone in the industry knew who made all this happen, yet, all they could do was protect themselves. After all, Mo Ting was serious, so no one dared to make any reckless jokes.
As a result, all gossip related to Tangning and/or the child in her stomach, disappeared without a trace, like nothing had ever happened.
Management agencies were afraid of causing offence, so they decided not to attract unnecessary troubles. As for artists, they knew their agencies feared Mo Ting, so how could they not be even more afraid!
Now that things had reached this point, the truth was no longer important. The most important thing was, everyone now knew how ruthless his methods were.
It didn't take long before news of what had happened traveled to Father Mo's ears. As the culprit behind the entire incident, Father Mo's face flushed red after hearing about the extreme and ruthless methods that Mo Ting had used. He had never expected that Mo Ting would go to this extent.
"This Mo Ting has really gone crazy," Father Mo's efforts had gone to waste, so he was bound to be angry. Especially after seeing Mo Ting's powerful methods, he finally understood what Mo Ting meant when he said that he'd implicate others.
In a way, Mo Ting was disregarding everyone!
"Even if Mo Ting suppresses this information, everyone will still be suspicious of the child in Tangning's body," Hua Wenfeng said as she grabbed onto father Mo's arm. "Plus, hubby, you need to remember that our target is Tangning. Mo Ting is still our son, you can't hurt him."
They couldn't hurt him?!
How did Hua Wenfeng say this with a straight face?
From the moment that the rumor started, Mo Ting had already been hurt.
Of course, the only reason why Hua Wenfeng was brave enough to whisper words of support into Father Mo's ears was because she thought Tangning would never be able to clarify the rumors...
But, she had no idea how good Tangning was at solving problems.
Out of all the problems she had ever experienced, she had never come across any that she couldn't solve.
So, Mo Ting first applied pressure on the outside and suppressed the gossip. Afterwards, it was Tangning's turn to counterattack.
Out of the three people that were made into examples by Mo Ting, one of them was caught in possession of marijuana and currently being detained at the police station. So, Tangning instructed Fang Yu to first bail her out. On the surface, she seemed to be helping her. But, in reality, Tangning was making her pay back for what she had done.
After bailing the young woman out, Fang Yu brought her to the CEO's office at Hai Rui.
However, the person waiting for her was not Mo Ting, but Tangning who was sitting peacefully reading her script.
The woman was, after all, someone who had slandered Tangning, so she couldn't avoid looking at her with slight awkwardness.
"I brought you here today because I would like your cooperation with something."
"I can help you, but you need to make the police let me go..."
Tangning put down the script in her hands and lifted her head coldly, "Let's make things clear. I'm not negotiating with you."
The woman was obviously shocked by the look in Tangning's eyes, so she looked down cowardly, "What do you want me to do?"
"Prove my innocence!"
The woman was merely in her early 20's. After hearing Tangning's request, she was quite surprised, "How do you expect me to prove your innocence? Do you think people would trust me if I was to step out and say it?"
Tangning gave a slight smile as she returned her gaze to the script in her hands, "I do want you to say it...but not by simply stepping out and saying it."
The woman looked at Tangning suspiciously, completely unaware of what frightening plan she had.
She had to prove Tangning's innocence?
But, a simple explanation would not work for something like this because no one would believe it. So, how was she to prove Tangning's innocence?
The woman obviously didn't believe that Tangning would succeed, so she began to feel a little scared. But, at the same time, she also felt a little excited...
She was really curious how Tangning planned to solve this crisis.
If Tangning could actually fix it, she would be well and truly convinced by her.
