Chapter 175: Chapter 175 Must Have Hidden Motives
At this moment, Wei Lan restrained her anger. She intended to be lenient and gave Su Bei a chance to confess for Lin Yu’s sake.
She couldn’t help but regret that she gave up the opportunity to take a vacation today and went to work. As a result, her daughter had an accident. If something bad happened to Meng Meng, she would regret it for the rest of her life.
Wei Lan looked at Su Bei coldly. If Su Bei was really guilty of the crime, she would make sure that Su Bei would never appear in the entertainment industry in the future, let alone make it to the front cover of Feng Shang.
Su Bei met Wei Lan’s gaze. “Editor-in-chief, I understand how you feel. If something happens to the children, mothers would inevitably be so worried that it can mess up their thinking and judgment. But please, think about it. I’ve already been chosen to be on the front cover of Feng Shang. Besides, my partner is Lin Yu. It can be said that I’m the biggest winner in the entire studio. Do I have to do some tricks like hurting Meng Meng to get your gratitude and the public’s attention?”
Wei Lan had become Feng Shang’s editor-in-chief, so obviously, she was a smart woman.
As soon as she heard what Su Bei said, she suddenly became sober. Everyone had hidden motives for doing something. People might do bad things for their own gain. So what exactly did Su Bei have to achieve in doing this?
This time, Wei Lan’s tone was not as cold as before, but she was still a little blunt when she said, “But still, this happened because of you. Su Bei, if someone hurt Meng Meng because that person wanted to frame you, you can’t avoid the responsibility.”
“Editor-in-chief, I’ve noticed that there are no surveillance cameras in the studio. This allowed someone to take advantage of it. When the accident happened, everyone was busy shooting, so no one paid attention to Meng Meng. But I remember that when Meng Meng had an accident, Luo Li was nearby, and a camera was set up not far away. Editor-in-chief, can we also ask Luo Li some questions?” Su Bei had already figured out the situation at the scene.
Her calmness was so contagious that it also made Wei Lan calm down. No matter what, Wei Lan had to find the culprit to get justice for her daughter.
“Okay, I’ll ask Luo Li to come here.” Wei Lan made the decision promptly.
She had no intention of calling the police yet. Although she subconsciously thought that Su Bei was still suspicious, she wanted to give Su Bei a chance for the sake of Lin Yu.
Of course, Su Bei was also aware of this. She knew that Lin Yu had been a big help for her, and even Wei Lan’s tolerance was because of him.
‘Lin Stone really deserves two hotpots, ‘ she thought.
Before Luo Li came in, she tried her best to calm down. She couldn’t show panic on her face.
Concealing her guilt, she asked, “Editor-in-chief, how is Meng Meng now?”
“Luo Li, you were there when the accident happened. What did you see?” Wei Lan cut to the chase.
“I… I didn’t see anything. I was also shocked because it happened so suddenly.” Actually, Luo Li wanted to say that she saw it with her own eyes when Su Bei pushed Meng Meng to the swimming pool. But if she said that, she would make too many lies. She didn’t dare to continue making more mistakes because she was afraid that she couldn’t rationalize her dishonesty anymore. So she simply chose to play dumb.
She thought that her reaction now could increase suspicions on Su Bei.
Wei Lan said lightly, “Then give me the memory card of your camera. Maybe it captured something, right?”
“I think my camera was not turned on at that time. But I can give you the memory card. Maybe you can find some clues.” Luo Li quickly took out the memory card from her wallet and handed it to Wei Lan decisively.
The more straightforward she behaved, the less suspicious she would be.
Anyway, she had deleted all the contents of the memory card and formatted it. She even scratched it severely with the key just now.
