PERFECT LOVE - Season 24 Episode 69
Upon seeing Yi Lingjun’s attitude and expression, Ye Wanwan immediately walked up with a smile and latched onto Yi Lingjun’s arm. “Dad, I heard you’ve helped Ah-Jiu a lot with amending and reevaluating the rules.”
Yi Lingjun pursed his lips. “Eh, not bad. You know about that.”
“Of course! Ah-Jiu’s immensely grateful for all of your help and he tells me about it all day long. He said we must fulfill our filial duties well toward you in the future.” Ye Wanwan was grinning.
Yi Lingjun peered at Si Yehan from the corner of his eyes. “This lad has a rather decent conscience.”
After receiving a reminder gaze from his wife, Si Yehan didn’t respond and chose to agree tacitly.
“President, there’s still a matter I need to report to you,” Si Yehan said.
Yi Lingjun saw Si Yehan’s serious expression and also looked at him solemnly. “What is it?”
Si Yehan briefly explained last night’s incident to Yi Lingjun, who fell into contemplation afterward.
Yi Lingjun had known that someone wanted to assassinate Ye Wanwan several days ago, so he gave her a “treasure” that would suffice as self-protection. He didn’t expect Ye Wanwan to actually know her assassin and manage to weasel some information out of him.
According to Si Yehan’s conjecture, the mastermind was Vice President Qin while the one who made the request was the Yin family’s adopted son, Yin Heng.
If they used common sense to make this speculation, it appeared to be the case.
However, what the Arbitration Council needed wasn’t speculation; they needed evidence.
Forget about the fact that everything was speculation. Even if they had an assassin testifying personally, it wouldn’t be realistic to knock down the vice president of the Arbitration Council.
And this evidence had to be solid, actual evidence. The Arbitration Council absolutely wouldn’t convict a person solely based on an assassin’s one-sided testimony.
“There’s no need for you to continue investigating and focus on the true mastermind,” Yi Lingjun said to Ye Wanwan and Si Yehan a moment later.
Ye Wanwan was startled, incomprehension written all over her face. “Dad! How could we not investigate or focus on this matter?! The one they want to assassinate is your precious daughter, the President of the Arbitration Council’s precious daughter! They aren’t targeting Yi Yunmo; they’re targeting you… How can you tolerate this?”
How could she relinquish her hold on her thick thigh? Ye Wanwan was determined to hug the thigh to the max.
Yi Lingjun glanced at Ye Wanwan. How could he not understand this girl’s thoughts? “Do you think everyone else is as foolish as you? Since someone dared to hire an assassin to assassinate my daughter, regardless of whether they succeeded or not, they wouldn’t fear an investigation from the Arbitration Council and must’ve thought of a foolproof plan.”
“If it’s really as you two think and it’s Vice President Qin pulling the strings from behind, then there’s even less reason to waste our time. Qin Zong won’t permit you to discover anything. Forget about you two, but even I might not find anything.”
Si Yehan didn’t say anything and pondered for a moment.
In truth, Yi Lingjun’s words were very correct.
The only opening in this matter was that assassin. However, even if the assassin was willing to violate his principles and step forward to testify against Vice President Qin and Yin Heng, where was the evidence?
Who could guarantee it wasn’t Yi Lingjun intentionally hiring an assassin to wrongly accuse Vice President Qin to pave the road for his daughter, Yi Yunmo, and eradicate this barrier that prevented Yi Yunmo from advancing to the position of the Arbitration Council’s president?
Pull one hair and the whole body moves. Unless they had absolute evidence, they would only be handing their leverage to the other person for them to bite back.
