This Must Be Done
Haven’t finished talking yet?
He still has something he wants to say.
What else is there to say?
The officials and Chief Lin frowned slightly, but took a few steps back generously.
No matter what Young Master Fang wants to say, Old Lady Fang is not an impulsive youth. After all, after so much wind and rain, she knows what can be done and what can’t be done. They believed that Old Lady Fang had a sense of measure in her heart.
“What are you going to say? Do you want to say that I am ruthless and unjust?” Old Lady Fang said mutedly.
Fang Chengyu smiled and shook his head.
“Grandma is not that kind of person,” he said. “What I want to say is what I didn’t finish saying before.”
“Grandma, do you remember why I killed Li Changhong in prison?” Fang Chengyu repeated.
Old Lady Fang sighed. It should be understood that what she said was clear enough, and yet Chengyu still asked.
Also this matter had no connection to the present.
“Chengyu, I will tell you about this, but not now,” she said.
Fang Chengyu interrupted her by shaking his head.
“No, grandmother, you are wrong.” He said, “I didn’t do it because you told me to, but because I promised him.”
Promised him? Promised him what?
Old Lady Fang was taken aback.
“I asked him at the time to tell me one thing, whether these things he did to our Fang family was due to himself, or instigated by someone else.” Fang Chengyu said, “As long as he answered yes or no, I would give him a happier way out.”
Was there someone behind the scenes? Old Lady Fang looked astonished.
Fang Chengyu looked at her.
“Then Li Changhong’s gaze flickered, and he went crazy.” He said, “He wanted to shout out the sentence you didn’t let him shout out, and this sentence he obviously knew that our Fang family would not let him speak out, otherwise he would not have been so cautious and confident for so many years.”
Old Lady Fang was silent for a moment.
Yes, because that incident was a guard of honor for the Fang family, but it was also a shackle for the Fang family.
They couldn’t speak of it, and they couldn’t let others speak of it.
If Li Changhong knew this secret, he would definitely know that he couldn’t tell it.
“So what do you mean?” Old Lady Fang looked at Fang Chengyu in disbelief.
Fang Chengyu nodded.
“He wanted to die. Either he knew he was going to die or he received a signal from someone telling him to die, but whatever it was, his response clearly answered me. That’s why I promised him a happy way out.” He said, “Liu’er said cousin had said that she felt something was weird when she saw a team of officials pass by. I think she also discovered what I guessed. This is probably the reason why Li Changhong suddenly wanted to die in the cell.”
Old Lady Fang heard this and her body which had been trembling stiffened for an instant, and this time she really fell backward.
Fang Chengyu didn’t hold catch her by himself. Fang Jinxiu had rushed over to help so that Old Lady Fang sat on the ground and avoided falling straight down.
Chief Lin and the officials on the side were also taken aback and hurried forward a few steps.
“Grandma.” Fang Chengyu and Fang Jinxiu called out in unison, their voices choked with anxiety.
“You really have something good to say, do you want to scare your grandmother to death?” Fang Jinxiu shouted, staring at Fang Chengyu.
Old Lady Fang was a very strong person, so she still carried the family after her husband, son, and grandchildren had an accident.
But she is still old after all.
Fang Chengyu looked apologetic and guilty.
“Grandma,” he said dumbly. He stroked the old lady’s chest, “Don’t worry. Maybe I guessed wrong.”
Old Lady Fang did not faint, nor tremble anymore, but her pale face turned gray and her eyes were dim.
“You didn’t guess wrong.” Her voice was deep, “I often say that I guessed wrong. Your grandfather’s death was only an accident. There was no conspiracy. Your father’s death was also an accident. It was not a conspiracy. The framing is endless.”
She closed her eyes when she said this, and tears fell from the corners of her eyes.
“I don’t understand why this is.” She murmured.
“I want to find that out for myself.”
She thought of what the girl said when she offered to treat Fang Chengyu.
Can you only achieve this result with your own efforts?
They lived so hard, tried so hard to change their tragic fate. Everything finally changed, and they finally saw hope, revenge was given, the enemy was punished, and the relatives were relieved. It already took such a long time, why had everything suddenly changed again.
Old Lady Fang felt sad and indignant for Jun Zhenzhen, and also felt sad and indignant for herself.
Hasn’t the enemy already been punished?
Why did something happen again?
How many people in their Fang family are coveting behind their backs? Why didn’t God let them go?
“Grandma, don’t worry, my cousin is always agile and will definitely protect herself.” Fang Chengyu said, “There will be nothing wrong this time. I will find her as soon as possible.”
He said that as he helped Old Lady Fang get into the carriage.
“Grandma, you go back first. Let me do this.”
The old lady Fang held down his hand, and her gray eyes resurfaced sharply.
“No, you can’t do this alone.” She said, her voice held a little bit of grief and anger, “Zhenzhen is in this because of us. She cured you, and she must have become a thorn in the enemy’s eyes. To ruin our Fang family, they ruined your grandfather, killed your father, tried to kill you, and now they want to ruin her.”
At this point, her expression changed from grief and indignation to become hideous.
Why do you want to destroy our Fang family? Why do you want to destroy our Fang family?
What did my family do wrong? We are honest, diligent, and conscientious. We don’t commit crimes and deceive others. In the end, they still want us destroyed and our line ended.
What kind of sincerity is left to believe in, and what is the meaning of righteousness.
Old Lady Fang stood up straight by pressing Fang Chengyu’s arm.
“Come here,” she said calmly, “get my walking stick.”
What kind of walking stick do you need if you are going home by carriage?
Chief Lin and the officials frowned in confusion.
Fang Chengyu had no impression of this walking stick either.
Although Old Lady Fang was old, she had always been tough. Whether she was really tough or just faking it, she would never appear weak in front of others, let alone leaning on a crutch.
But perhaps this walking stick was also a sign. It signified the determination of Old Lady Fang. Even if she had suffered successive blows, even if she was getting older and older, she could still stand firm and welcome the coming tribulations.
Fang Chengyu answered yes.
The Fang family was also brightly lit at this time, and everyone stood there nervously.
Madam Fang was sitting in the hall, and news that Miss Jun and Master Lin had never been found was also passed back, and her expression was also full of worry.
If it was before, even if Jun Zhenzhen had died, let alone disappeared, she would not have felt anything.
But now, this Jun Zhenzhen is the one who had saved her son.
