Xia Micheng immediately frowned at the lawyer. “What did you say? Can you repeat that?”
“Micheng, don’t panic.” Lin Hurou quickly stood up and stepped forward, shielding Xia Micheng behind her. She looked at the lawyer and repeated the lawyer’s words, “Li Zhanming wants to sue me...for rape?”
Lin Hurou wanted to step forward the moment the lawyer uttered those words, but Xia Micheng had responded first. Now Lin Hurou stood tall with her hands on her waist, her expression extremely serious.
“Madam Lin, you heard me correctly. Mister Li is suing you for raping him 23 years ago,” said the lawyer, “You won’t be able to deny this accusation, with Miss Xia as evidence of your crime. You’ve escaped for so many years.”
Xia Micheng was utterly confused. Who am I? Where am I? What am I doing? she thought blankly.
