Chapter 72: I Swear, Zongye is Really Your Son
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Lu Zongye, who was still fast asleep, jumped up of bed and hugged Huo
Yuxi immediately as soon as he heard her screaming. “What happened?”
Huo Yuxi pushed Lu Zongye away and threw her cell phone at him. “Are
you asking me what happened? See for yourself!”
Lu Zongye was shocked at Huo Yuxi’s attitude towards him. After all,
they had just gotten married yesterday and today was supposed to be their
first day as a happily married couple. However, Huo Yuxi was staring at
him as though he was a complete stranger.
Lu Zongye felt very uncomfortable with the way Huo Yuxi was staring at
him, but he stayed calm and patiently picked up the cell phone that she
had thrown at him. As soon as he glanced at the title of the post, he
quickly put down the cell phone and turned around to ask Huo Yuxi, “You
know that this kind of things are always made up right? Why would you
believe this article to be true?”
“This article is released by X Society! You should finish reading the
entire article before you say anything else.” After that, Huo Yuxi put
on her clothes before she ran out of the room to make a phone call to
After Huo Yuxi left, Lu Zongye sat at the edge of the bed and started
reading the entire article even though he felt that it was extremely
“This…this is impossible. How could this even be possible? Does X
Society think that they can frame me by simply posting a DNA report
online? How can they prove that the DNA is mine in the first place? This
is seriously ridiculous.” Lu Zongye was in disbelief and he thought
that the entire situation was hilarious.
He was the happiest man in the world yesterday and today, he was labelled
as an impostor who was not officially a member of the Lu family. This
must be done by someone who wanted to set him up.
Yes—Jiang Yuning. It must have been Jiang Yuning!
After reading the article, Lu Zongye put on some clothes before he found
Huo Yuxi in the living room. He quickly walked up to her and started
explaining himself. “Yuxi, you have to believe me. How can whatever
they post online be true? I will prove them wrong, okay? All I have to do
is to go home and take a DNA test with my father. Trust me, okay?”
Huo Yuxi had tears streaming down her face when she turned around to look
at Lu Zongye. Her heart started to waver.
This was because the man in front of her seemed to know nothing at all
about this matter.
“You…really did not lie to me?”
“How can you believe this kind of nonsense so easily? I am a member of
the Lu family and that is an undeniable fact. We will go back to the Lu
family mansion now to get this thing sorted out and then by the end of
the day, you will know that this was merely an attempt by the media to
ruin my reputation. Okay?” Lu Zongye tried to reassure Huo Yuxi.
After listening to Lu Zongye’s words, Huo Yuxi wiped the tears off her
face and replied, “Okay then. Let’s go. Let’s go home now.”
“Wait, I think you should ask your mother to give Jiang Yuning a call.
I do not believe that X Society would release this kind of fake news for
no reason. Someone must have started the rumor to frame me and destroy
our happy marriage. Who else do you think would do that except for Jiang
When Huo Yuxi saw how passionate and sincere Lu Zongye was, she threw
herself into his arms and hugged him tightly. “You are already my
husband now…so you must not lie to me.”
“Don’t worry, I would never lie to you. Hurry up and give your mother
a call before we head back to the Lu family mansion.”
There was so much evidence to prove Lu Zongye’s real identity, but Lu
Zongye and Huo Yuxi refused to believe that it was true. This was because
Li Shutong had always been very secretive and she had never told anyone,
not even Lu Zongye, the truth. That was the reason why Lu Zongye was so
confident and smug even amidst the chaos. How would Li Shutong react when
she found out that her lie had been exposed?
As soon as Lu Zhengbai stepped into his office, his secretary quickly
informed him about the news released earlier that day. He was extremely
shocked when he heard the news and quickly rushed back to the Lu family
mansion in order to clarify the truth.
Li Shutong was taking a bath when Lu Zhengbai suddenly pushed the
bathroom door open as he held onto his cell phone. He said in a stern
voice, “Put on some clothes now.”
“Is something wrong?” Li Shutong asked, as she had not known about
the news yet.
“Right now!” Lu Zhengbai screamed.
Li Shutong rolled her eyes and quickly got out of the bathtub before
putting on her dress. She then followed Lu Zhengbai out to the living
room. “What happened?”
“See for yourself,” Lu Zhengbai said as he handed his cell phone over
to Li Shutong.
Li Shutong trembled and her mind went blank as soon as she saw the
headline of the article.
“Can you tell me if the DNA report is true or false?”
“This…how could this be true, Zhengbai? Everything written in this
article is obviously fake! You have to believe that I am innocent!” Li
Shutong said as she rushed over to Lu Zhengbai and held onto his arm.
“You have to believe me…I swear, Zongye is really your son.”
“You swear? Have you seen the two DNA reports that was published in the
“How can we be certain about whose DNA they had used in the DNA test?
In order to identify the relationship between family members, they will
need to extract and obtain a sample of your DNA. It is impossible for
anyone to have obtained a sample of both your DNA so easily. Therefore,
the article and the reports must be fake!” Li Shutong argued.
At that moment, the butler was standing guard at the door. In fact, he
was the one who had obtained the DNA samples as instructed to by Lu
Jingzhi. However, he did not have the right to say anything.
The second young master would naturally have his own arrangements when it
came to this kind of matters.
“I will know if the news is real or false after undergoing another DNA
test with Zongye. The truth will be revealed and there will be no use
trying to deny the results of the DNA report then. If this matter is
untrue, why would people want to make such a big deal out of it?”
“It must be Jiang Yuning. Hubby, it must be that little shrewd woman,
Jiang Yuning. She must have made up this entire story just to retaliate
against our family because she did not get to marry Zongye.”
Li Shutong and Lu Zongye were surprisingly consistent when they pointed
the blame at someone else. This showed that Lu Zongye had indeed been
brought up and raised by Li Shutong.
“That is right! Dad, you should not blame and accuse my mom for no
reason at all!” At that moment, Lu Zongye and Huo Yuxi had both arrived
at the Lu family mansion. Lu Zongye could no longer control his temper
upon witnessing his father reprimanding his mother. “Yuxi has already
asked Jiang Yuning to come over to the Lu family mansion. When that
little shrewd arrives, I am going to ask her if she is only ever going to
stop her nonsense once she has totally destroyed the Lu family.”
“I do not care if this matter is related to Jiang Yuning or otherwise.
No matter what it is, I want to undergo another DNA test with you,” Lu
“Alright then,” Lu Zongye agreed immediately. “How can I
“Butler, bring a pair of scissors over here. Hair, saliva, I want you
to take a sample of anything that could be used for a DNA test. I want to
have the test done thoroughly,” Lu Zhengbai said.
Li Shutong was at a loss for words when she stood aside and watched as
the butler collected DNA samples from both Lu Zhengbai and Lu Zongye.
She did not dare to say anything because she knew that it would be the
end of Lu Zongye and herself.
Huo Yuxi started to regain her trust and confidence in Lu Zongye upon
seeing how willing and determined he was to proceed with the DNA test.
She then said, “This matter is definitely not as simple as it looks.
When Yuning arrives later, we have to question her thoroughly about
“That little shrewd just want to cause trouble in our family all the
time,” Li Shutong said as she sat down on the sofa and started crying.
The situation was temporary stable for the moment.
Li Shutong thought that she would figure out a way to tamper with the DNA
test after she had successfully calm Lu Zhengbai down.
In fact, Jiang Yuning had already anticipated that both Li Shutong and Lu
Zongye would eventually put the blame on her. This was because she was
already used to all their antics.
She knew that when they were pushed to a corner, they would have no other
options but to try and push the blame to someone else so that they could
prove their own innocence.
Therefore, Jiang Yuning was not surprised when she suddenly received a
phone call from Fu Yahui. Since she was destined to be involved in this
matter, she then decided that she should bring Chen Jingshu along with
her to the Lu family mansion, so that she could personally witness the
downfall of Li Shutong and Lu Zongye.
