Chapter 825: Getting Closer and Closer to the Truth
Hence, he didn’t dare to let his guard down. After thinking about it seriously for a while, he looked up and said, “Young Master Gong, I don’t remember much about what happened 10 years ago. I thought about it carefully just now. If I remember correctly, I should have brought Mianmian to the Gong family’s banquet back then.”
“That year… was summer.” Qiao Ruhai recalled. “That was the first time the Qiao family received an invitation from the Gong family.”
This was an honor and a surprise for the Qiao family.
That was why he still remembered this.
If it was some unimportant household that invited him, he wouldn’t have remembered.
Gong Zeli looked up, his heart pounding. “Are you sure? You brought Qiao Mianmian to the Gong family’s banquet 10 years ago?”
Qiao Ruhai looked up at him and thought about it seriously for a while before nodding. “Yes. It was Young Master Gong’s birthday party back then. I thought that Mianmian was about the same age as you, so I brought her along.”
Gong Zeli looked calm.
But his fingers were trembling uncontrollably.
“Speaking of this…” Qiao Ruhai glanced at Gong Zeli’s expression cautiously. There was a hint of hesitation in his eyes.
Gong Zeli took a deep breath and tried to control his emotions. “What else do you remember?”
Qiao Ruhai still remembered what happened that day. Firstly, it was Young Master Gong’s birthday, and it was an honor for the Qiao family to be able to attend it.
He had bragged about it for a long time.
Secondly, it was because of something that left a deep impression on him.
He was still hesitating if he should say it, but since Gong Zeli had already asked, he could only say it.
“I remember that day when Mianmian said she was going to the washroom, she went for a long time. When she came back, I realized that she was all wet, as if she’d fallen into the water. I asked her what happened, but she didn’t tell me. I was worried that she’d catch a cold, so I brought her home early.”
Back then, he thought that his daughter had been bullied.
He was angry and helpless.
Initially, he wanted to find the person who bullied Qiao Mianmian. But when he thought about how most of the people at the banquet were either rich or powerful, if the other party’s family background far surpa.s.sed the Qiao family, not only would they not be able to get justice, they might even get into trouble.
He thought for a while and decided to let it go.
Actually, Qiao Ruhai didn’t know why he said it.
He just felt that perhaps Gong Zeli’s investigation had something to do with this.
Otherwise, why would he ask about what happened 10 years ago?
Moreover, he kept asking him if he brought Qiao Mianmian along.
It was obvious that his investigation had something to do with Qiao Mianmian, and it happened at his birthday party.
That was why Qiao Ruhai wanted to tell him about it.
He only had the guts to say it because he saw Gong Zeli’s att.i.tude.
“What did you say?”
Gong Zeli’s barely maintained composure was shattered by this statement.
He almost crushed the white jade teacup in his hand.
