1300 Tell me the other murderer’s identity.
"Second uncle," Pei Ge coldly said, "I've come to visit you."
"You b*tch, don't you call me that!" thundered Pei Zhenghui.
He had figured out who was behind his downfall a few days ago.
He had truly not expected to fall for his niece's traps after setting up so many people himself.
"If not for my support, do you think you'd be where you are today?"
"Heh… Support." She sneered, her eyes frosting over.
"If it weren't for you, my family would still be complete now!"
Her father would not have died!
She would not have lost her father at a young age, nor would her mother have become a widow!
"That's your brother! He took such good care of you! How could you?!"
She got more upset as she spoke. How deep in despair her father was when he died…
"I'm telling you. Pei Family Real Estate is now gone! It doesn't exist in the capital anymore! There's only Gemei that you stole back then!"
Anger flashed across her uncle's eyes following her words.
"You can't do that! That's my company! You can't ruin it! You can't!"
His agitated cries attracted the attention of the prison guards.
However, she merely smiled, indicating that there was nothing to worry about.
"That company isn't yours to begin with; it's my father's. You're just a thief, and I just took back what rightfully belongs to my family."
She laughed coldly, admiring the anger on the older man's face.
"Oh, right. I forgot to tell you. Your second wife is as materialistic as you are. Your dearest son isn't even yours."
"What?!" He froze when he heard that and stared at her in disbelief. His voice trembled as he spoke. "You're lying! You're lying! How could Qiqi not be my child?! He's my son! My son!"
He loved that child of his, given that it was a son conceived at his age. If not, he would not have given such a large portion of his shares to his second wife!
"You should know if I'm lying. Has your dearest wife brought your son to visit you since you've been in here?"
In an instant, he felt as if his world had crumbled.
"This time, I just wanted to ask you…
"Who incited you to kill my father then?"
This was a question that had been bothering her for a long time, for she had been unable to find the last murderer of her father.
From the journals, she could only tell that the person was a person with high ranking at Gemei.
However, no matter how much she looked into it, she could not identify the person.
"If you tell me, I may be able to get you out of here."
She smiled sweetly at her uncle. Despite her sweet smile, she looked sinister to him.
"Can you really get me out of here?"
He swallowed as he stared intently at his niece.
If it meant getting out, he would do anything, and that included betraying everyone, but having seen his niece's way of doing things, he was a little skeptical about her offer.
"Do you think you have the right to negotiate now? The worst that can happen is that you remain where you are right now."
She raised a brow and looked plainly at him.
"Speak, and when you're done, at least your life won't be any worse, will it?"
Her words were tempting, and his heart softened.
He looked at her and thought of how the person behind everything could roam about freely while he rotted here in prison.
How was he to take this lying down?
Thinking of how that man had disappeared when he needed help, he told her everything he knew as if in retaliation.
"He's called Yang Hua, a director in your father's company.
"Director?" She knitted her brows together. "Why didn't I find him during my investigation?"
She found all the other members of the management but not nothing on that guy.
Even her father's journals did not mention anything about a man called Yang Hua.
"That guy wasn't a trusted aide of your dad. He's new, so it's normal for you not to find anything about him. He's always been cunning! Maybe, he came to Gemei just to harm your father!"
His words resounded in her ears.
"Just to harm my father…"
How could that be? Dad has always been kind to everyone; why would anyone want to hurt him?
If it's intentional, then that's a plan with a long period of conception! Just to get rid of my father?!
"Tell me: What exactly went on back then when you all murdered my father?"
The memories came back to the older man as she pressed him for an answer.
"At that time… I never thought of hurting my older brother, but for some reason, I was down on my luck. I owed a large sum from gambling…
"And because of interest, it only continued to increase, and just as I could no longer afford to pay those loan sharks, Yang Hua… came to me."
Pei Ge pursed her lips tightly at this point.
Perhaps both brothers were set up by that man!
Even though Pei Zhenghui had debts, it would likely be not as much without that man's manipulation!
"You know that there's nothing else I could do! If I didn't pay, they'd kill me, so…"
"So you agreed to help that man murder my father and steal his company.
"Are you still human? Yes, your life is valuable, but so is my father's life!"
