Escape So Easily？
So, how much credibility did Han Jie still hold? Even he couldn't answer that question.
But, no matter what the truth was, the public enjoyed watching the first battle as their interest piqued.
Meanwhile, Han Jie's situation worsened.
If he didn't respond the first time because he underestimated Tangning and Su Yu, then, this time around, he had to express his standpoint clearly.
If the Han Family still refused to respond even after Su Yu had already reaffirmed her standpoint, then she was going to release more evidence and the Han Family would only look worse.
Han Jie was in quite a dilemma, especially since his face was still burning from the slap he received earlier. After all, he knew deep down how difficult it was to deal with Su Yu who was receiving help from Tangning.
So, after careful thought, he decided not to reveal his end game. He was going to continue diverting trouble towards Tangning instead.
As a result, during his next PR attempt, Han Jie directed his anger towards Tangning.
"This is our own family matter. I hope outsiders don't get involved. Your tricks might end up ruining a happy family!"
"I admit that I may have been partially lied to. But, my father's affair has no direct connection to my mother being caught in bed with two men."
"Just because my father had an affair, it doesn't mean that my mother is automatically innocent. How do you know that we aren't innocent instead?"
Who was this 'outsider' that he referred to? Everyone knew without him saying.
Not only did Han Jie draw everyone's attention towards Tangning, he even pretended that he had been lied to. Moreover, he insisted that even if his father was wrong, his mother also cheated and was in no way innocent.
Of course, Han Jie's main motive was to draw attention away from himself and transfer them to Tangning.
According to him, she was an outsider that had no right to interfere with others' business.
Su Yu wasn't her artist nor her relative, so how could she play her tricks around them?
Han Jie's words weren't unreasonable.
After all, the entire matter had nothing to do with Tangning, so how could she act all righteous and interfere with something unrelated to her?
Even for a normal person this was a taboo, let alone someone like her with tens of millions of fans.
So, the way that Han Jie challenged Tangning was reasonable.
However...his method was a little stupid.
Tangning knew she couldn't withdraw from the matter easily because she provoked it to begin with.
So, her personal manager, Mo Ting, stepped out to provide a response.
However, he didn't say anything at first. He simply presented the the three pieces of evidence that they had.
The first one was the video that Han Xiuche had made and released previously, claiming that it was leaked footage from 'The Ant Queen'. During the editing process, he had forgotten to remove the logo, yet he manipulated netizens into ridiculing the film.
The second piece of evidence was the incident at the film festival where Han Xiuche framed Tangning for cheating with An Zihao.
And the third, was when Han Jie bribed the special effects technician into slandering the post production of 'The Ant Queen' and claiming that they received help from Hollywood.
Afterwards, he gave a Mo-style conclusion:
"Firstly, I would like to say that my wife has never done anything to wrong the Han brothers. On the other hand, from Superstar Media until 'The Ant Queen', how many attacks have they directed towards her? I'm sure the available evidence is enough to say it all."
"Secondly, I'd like to pose a question for the Han brothers: do you expect me to let you bully my wife after all the attacks you've made? I'm sure you know how things ended up this way."
"Thirdly, I hope the brothers stop trying to divert everyone's attention. The matter with the Han Family was not my wife's fault. What goes around comes around and the truth will eventually be revealed..."
"So, I'd like to ask that President Han answer Su Yu's questions and not dig his own grave!"
"Finally, my wife is simply providing assistance, she's not twisting the truth. She is willing to take responsibility for everything she's said!"
In other words, Han Jie was trying to divert everyone's attention, but he was simply fanning the hatred that the public felt for him.
Of course, as soon as Mo Ting's evidence was released, the Han brothers were exposed of everything...
"The Han brothers are psychos. They did something wrong, yet they won't admit to it, instead they're asking others why they are interfering with someone else's matters!"
"My Ning has come across the cruelest brothers. No one can compare to them!"
"They started it. I don't know how these two brothers could call Tangning an outsider when they framed her first..."
"My Ning doesn't have much spare time. If these two brothers weren't so disgusting, no one would want to get involved with them; they would just avoid them."
In the end, Han Jie used Tangning to draw away attention, but Mo Ting quickly threw it back at him.
Did he think he could escape so easily?
Han Jie was slapped in the face - left, right and center - leaving him with no strength to retaliate. Those watching the drama unfold, couldn't help but cheer in amusement.
If he was simply complaining that Tangning was butting her nose into the Han Family's business, he may have had an argument. But, after all the hurtful things he had done, wasn't it only right for them to respond with a little something of their own?
Han Jie was almost driven mad by the stress!
At that time, Father Han also called to apply pressure and urgency. So, Han Jie exploded, "I'm making such a huge sacrifice for your measly matter. You may be able to hide overseas, but what about me? Isn't one troublemaker at home enough...?"
"Don't criticize me, aren't you selfish as well?" Father Han asked. "I've already given the family business to you, what else do you want?"
"The current mess is too hard to clean up. If I can't clean it, then you will need to handle it yourself. After all, I was still a child when everything happened."
"Han Jie...you are such an ungrateful dog!"
Han Jie couldn't be bothered listening anymore as he hung up.
There were only a few people in his family, but there wasn't a single one that he didn't need to worry about.
They either caused trouble or were trying to escape trouble; his life was not easy.
Han Jie threw his phone to the side. That was when he noticed Han Xiuche standing in the doorway with his arms crossed. His heart immediately dropped as he asked, "Why did you come in without knocking on the door?"
"I knocked! You simply didn't notice," Han Xiuche said innocently.
"What did you hear?"
"Is there something that you're worried I might hear?" Han Xiuche asked.
"It's nothing. If you don't have anything to say to me, then get out," Han Jie was not in the mood to argue. There was still a huge mess waiting for him to clean.
Right now, he was being cornered by Tangning and Su Yu, to the point where he could barely breathe. If he couldn't hold up against them, then he had no choice but to betray every last person in his family!
Of course, if even that didn't work, then all they could do was pray.
So, they wanted him to respond to Su Yu, huh?
How was he to respond?
No matter how he responded, Tangning was going to throw him into hell!
That was the consequence for offending Tangning and Mo Ting!
Han Jie was left with no choice but to use his last trump card...
